Ok so let me tell you! Today was so busy I had a hard time trying to decide what to talk about here! I couldn’t cover everything that I wanted to sooooo head over to twentythirdstation.tumblr.com for links and kpop updates that weren’t included here!
XIA was recently on a livestream through the Naver app talking about his latest album, “Xignature”. He was asked during the broadcast about his juniors that he actually likes and he gave the loaded answer of the year! He talked about BTOB and how they left a good impression on him but he also mentioned some other familiar names.
“Truthfully, there’s so many idols these days I don’t really know a lot of people personally. I might know their group’s name, but not individual names. If I had to choose, I would say the BEAST and INFINITE members. These days, it’s nice to see that idols really passionate about what they do, and how they can sing and dance really well. But of course, I’m closer to those I interact with and know personally. That’s why I am fond of BEAST and INFINITE.”
I like that answer!
SISTAR released their official comeback teaser and plans today. Pretty exciting way to start off June. This will be the 4th mini-album for SISTAR.
And not to be left out of the comeback celebrations, SONAMOO also officially announced their plans for a comeback through their official website. They released a coded message with their homepage changed to the color green with orbs circling their logo.
“In June of 2016, colorful lights will brighten up one by one along with the Green Moon. Seven different colors will unite into one shining light”
Tiffany is making waves since her official solo release. After the release of I Just Wanna Dance, it was announced that she would be performing her first solo concert for a select time period in Korea. Well… the shows sold out!! And now, new shows have been officially added to accommodate the demand.
“…[Tiffany] solo concert will be the sixth in SM’s “The Agit” concert series. Tickets went on sale on May 19 and immediately sold out. Since many fans were unable to procure tickets, more concert dates have been added… Tickets for the additional concerts will go on sale June 7 at 8 p.m. KST through Yes24.”
If you’re in the area and want to go, you might want to head over to Yes24 and get your tickets ASAP!
In unfortunate news, DIA is pulling out of 2016 Dream Concert. Interestingly enough, Jung Chae Yeon will still perform… with IOI. Representatives released a statement explaining the decision.
“Jung Chae Yeon will only perform as an IOI member at the ‘Dream Concert’. DIA will not be performing. After a discussion, the members decided not to perform at ‘Dream Concert’, considering the difficulties Jung Chae Yeon will face [in performing with 2 groups].”
So while DIA decides instead to prepare for their comeback, Chae Yeon will perform with IOI. I guess this would be a little easier for her so she doesn’t have to overwork herself. And, IOI is only promoting for a year so might as well enjoy the ride now.
EXO pretty much “broke the internet” with the release of one photo.
And then more followed…
I don’t think anything else needs to be said here except, the official comeback date is June 9th! We are literally days away from this comeback.
I’m so beyond ready for this…
