Alright so in short, this weekend was kinda weird in the kpop world. AOA pulled a video and then re-released a version of it that was more appropriate. Jessica’s countdown as moved and now fans are questioning if she’ll be promoting at all. And a tv show ranked actors who they feel are the top 20 idol actors in the industry and upset a lot of people.
It was just… odd.
But it seems that things are taking a turn for the worse with DIA if they don’t listen to their fans. The agreement was, Jung Chae Yeon would promote with IOI and release an album and be tied to them as a group for a year before rejoining DIA. Apparently, that has somehow changed and she may be coming back sooner. The plot twist didn’t sit too well with fans.
In a statement, they let the agency know that this wasn’t going to work for them and that if they did it anyway, consequences would commence.
“…The current period, which is far from the official conclusion of IOI’s one-year promotions, is not the right time [for Jung Chae Yeon] to join DIA. We cannot accept the agency’s decision which we expect will have a negative effect on IOI’s group activities as well as Jung Chae Yeon’s promotions… We oppose Jung Chae Yeon’s addition to DIA while she is promoting with IOI, and should Jung Chae Yeon join DIA during this time period, we will boycott all [of DIA’s] activities…”
They actually have a really good reason for this. They’re extremely worried about Jung Chae Yeon because of all the promoting and work, they’re worried for her health. They want to make sure that she’s healthy and that they honor their agreement of a one year promotion with IOI only first.
BEAST’s Yoseob has managed to become one of my favorite people with one single tweet.
“Hey Cube how are you doing? I’m singing with Jo Soomi I thought I’d just let you know since it didn’t look like you knew. Anyway have a good friday.”
The tweet has apparently been deleted but it was needed. It was clearly meant to be all in jest but I hope they start acknowledging his promoting activities a bit more.
Superbee has to be the strangest story of the day. Though he’s no stranger to controversy, I think today’s story definitely tops the cake! He said the most vulgar thing… I won’t even copy/paste on here but I’m sure by now you’ve heard his “101 pretty sexy…in my bedroom” comment in the song “Everything” on Swings’ mixtape Levitate 2.
Fans began to speculate that the comment could’ve been in reference to IOI and when asked about it, Superbee said…
“Hello, it’s nice to meet you and thank you. I worked on ‘Everything’ last year~I wrote [the lyrics] after watching ‘101 Dalmatians.'”
Umm… if you have heard the comment, then you know how weird this explanation may seem. And apparently, fans thought so too.
Netizens have been generally skeptical of this response from Superbee, commenting, “What a joke. How can he use that as an excuse? That’s even more despicable,” “He’s crazier than I thought if he wrote those lyrics after watching ‘101 Dalmatians,'” “His excuse is even more perverted,”…
I really have no words for this one.
