Let's be real, when isn't Papa YG up to something? Sara and I have been talking lately and we've come to a sad, but possibly true, conclusion.
Mr. YG is always debuting groups, putting them on hold, and letting them run wild like they're zoo animals. This applies to 2NE1 and Big Bang most. That's where I'm going with this post.
So Sara and I have been suspicious that Mr. YG is up to something. Come on, now, he's always trolling! So...We thought about Big Bang and their MADE album. It's having a lot and sure they were hiatus for three whole years but they even delayed it to make it longer! BB sure do whatever they want - you know, as legends and all - but that doesn't mean Mr. YG isn't bossing them around somewhat.
Big Bang are legends and they're an old group, so is 2NE1 which is why we've thought about the new groups as well. Mr. YG has that new girl group, he has iKon and he has WINNER as well so think about it like this....
Big Bang have MADE, which still isn't finished. 2NE1 are going to comeback but nobody knows when. iKon debuted and Winner are going to have a comeback sometime and Mr. YG is talking about his girl group as well.
Now, Sara is saying that because Big Bang and 2NE1's contracts end soon, they will both disband. Not at once, of course, but within a short time of each other. Then she says iKon will be the supposed "new Big Bang" and the girl group will be the supposed "new 2NE1". It makes sense. You can't deny it.
What I'm thinking is pretty similar. I think Big Bang will finish up MADE and then iKon will have more songs or Winner might possibly have a comeback, to me iKon is more likely though. After that I think 2NE1 will have a comeback and then Big Bang's disbandment will be announced. After 2NE1's comeback, they will disband and the girl group will be announced officially. It could also go like Big Bang finishes MADE, they disband, Winner come back, 2NE1 comeback, iKon comeback and official announcement of the girl group and then 2NE1's disbandment.
We could both be wrong, this is just our theory of things and it seems likely. We never know what Papa YG is doing. Of course all of this could be wrong and Sara and I are just dumb or we could be 100% correct. It depends on everything really. To be honest, nobody wants the legends to disband and everyone wishes to keep it all good but keep in mind their ages and what they are going through.
Big Bang are at the age to date and get married by now and they probably want to do solo things or just relax. This doesn't mean they hate each other but they are aging. I know that no matter what they will keep up with their solo duties so it's not like we will never see them again or hear their voices again.
2NE1 have a lot going on. CL is already independent enough to go completely solo in Korea, Japan and America so she is fine. Minzy just opened her dance studio and there are rumors of her jealousy towards CL as well. Plus, Minzy does sing and she'll probably sing more if 2NE1 isn't together. Dara is an actress and she is getting rolls in web dramas like nobody's business! Dara also can try singing solo if she wanted to - remember guys, she has a solo song called Kiss. And Park Bom...We all know about Bommie. She was in the scandal and we haven't seen her since, she is also in her thirties so she is at the age of marriage. I wouldn't be surprised if 2NE1 agreed to disband at this point.
Anyways, like I said, we could be one hundred percent wrong or one hundred percent right. I just thought I'd share the theories that we came up with for Mr. YG and his shenanigans of course. Do not be offended or anything, it was my idea to post this and it's just opinions and ideas. I'll see you soon, Rice Cakes~!
I'm bored so I thought I'd make a quick post about EXO. I apologize if this is offensive in any way at all, I'm not trying to be. I just want to share my thoughts about EXO and the deteriorating numbers in the amount of members.
EXO started off with twelve members and "OH MY GAWD" that is a holy numbers of Korean/Chinese men in one group. Like if I were into their looks I would be dead with so many members but I do not find EXO attractive, I mean, I like Kai and Chanyeol but that's it. Back on topic - EXO started with twelve members! A lot but not the most. Topp Dogg has thirteen and none have left -that I know of- and they still have thirteen. I'm pretty sure SuJu have like one hundred when they debuted so EXO is just another large group but not the largest. I was never a big fan of EXO. Good music, yes. At least one person who I like, yes. Because I was not a big fan I was not upset when I heard about the first member leaving. Kris.
Kris filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment and left EXO. Fangirls were devastated and still are. I, however saw this possibility. How can someone take six Chinese guys and six Korean guys, split them into EXO-M and EXO-K and then EXO and expect them to get along fine? No doubt there will be fighting and with SM overworking idols so much having twelve people in one group and exhausted 24/7 is not a great idea. Thanks SM for overworking idols. After Kris leaving, EXO became EXO with eleven members.
After things with Kris seemed to die down there has been recent news of Luhan leaving -I feel bad for all you HunHan shippers out there. Luhan - who is also from EXO-M just as Kris was, left. He filed his lawsuit and left EXO. This was kind of shocking but not too much since eleven members to smash together and overwork is still a lot. The hate with Kris leaving was a lot and I know the hate with Luhan leaving was probably a lot too. I do consider how their fans feel but you guys shouldn't worry too much, they are still doing things in China from what I hear. So after Kris and Luhan's leave EXO is left with ten members.
After two members leaving from EXO and EXO-M, a third member is rumored to be leaving. Tao is from EXO-M and he is rumored to be leaving. At this point I expect it and am honestly ready for a day where -if it happens- there is no members in EXO-M. I mean Tao was just in a movie so he is starting an acting career and he is probably about to file a lawsuit for those who overwork idols (SM). I feel bad for EXO fans as this continues to happen but it happens to some groups so support your biases and cheer them on for what they gotta do.
I hope none of this was offensive. I know people can get sensitive about their biases, especially EXO. I just wanted to talk about how I feel about EXO's numbers going from 12 to a possible 9. Hopefully you guys don't hate me for this. No offense is being put here, just my opinion. If you don't agree, don't kill me and go on with your life. I will say though....Good luck to EXO-L's.
This may seem soon but I wanted to turn everyone's attention to the death of an Idol this year. Sojin from baby Kara allegedly committed suicide. She was found in front of an apartment complex in the bushes. She had apparently jumped/fallen from the 10th floor, She was rushed to the hospital but didn't make it. I'm not sure on details but I do know that its sad too see this happen. With all the idols and competition idols need to take desperate measures now to stay in the business. Its even worse for the females because girl groups are not as big as guy groups. It really saddens me to hear this news so I would like to take time and pray for idols to not go down this path.I just hope Sojin is happier now. R.I.P Sojin of baby Kara.
It's been a while since news has been posted and for me that is because I am behind in everything new so I have like no idea what's going on 80% of the time. Since this is easy, I decided to do something about the K-fashion/style. I really like it so I decided to do a post like this.
Now before just assuming about K-Fashion, you must know that it's just like other places and there are different kinds of styles, trends, and clothes. I personally like hip hop stuff but I also like other stuff depending on my mood. If you say "oh I like Korean clothes" then that's fine, just know the clothes aren't all the same.
So there are SO, SO MANY styles! Of course our amazing idols wear almost every and any kind of style there is. There are many styles like the sophisticated style, luxury style, girly, cute, bold, hip hop, ect. Styles for boys and girls are pretty much the same except girls have girly and that's about it.
Obviously I didn't include ALL clothes for ALL people but just some basics for guys and girls. Of course many more kinds of styles exist but it will take me 100 years to name them and then get examples for you so I just left you with basic styles. If you want to know what's trending or cool you could always search up "Korean Uzzlang Clothes" or "Korean trends" on the internet and find out. Sadly, I do not provide this information, I am poor at keeping up with clothes and trends because if I like it, then it's trending in my mind but might not be trending in reality. Anyways, if you are interested in Korean fashion just know what's trending and know what you like.
Once there is a style there is clothes and with clothes come accsessories. Accessories are what finish the outfit and style. A hat, glasses, a scarf, a ring, a necklace, bracelets, ect. Everyone has a favorite accessory that they like and for me it's a good ole hat. So if you like, let's say a casual style then you wouldn't do too many accsessories, maybe some jewelry but not a lot and maybe some sunglasses or a watch, whatever is simplest or easiest to fit a casual style. Now if you like something more complicated in accsessories like a luxury style, then you would want like gold jewelry and diamonds, shiny stuff, you know? Luxury style can get any kind of accessory but it has to look high end or fit the luxury style. It's not too hard to find good accsessories, you just need to know what style they go with.
Korean clothes are like any other clothes but Korean's pull them off better, let's admit that. So, now there is style and accsessories and you have probably seen something here that you've liked so go get some cool clothes -when you have the time and money -and make your clothes from average to Korean! We all must admit that Korean fashion is really cool and everyone likes something about it, even if it's just a pair of earrings.
I'm sorry this is short but I just wanted to do something about K-Fashion and I wasn't sure about what so I just did this. I hope you enjoyed it and found some stuff that you like on here. Goodbye!
So everyone has obviously heard of Jessica and her "issues" with SNSD. Jessica has rumors of being engaged and getting married in May to a guy named Tyler Kwon, she was kicked from GG, ect, ect.
So everyone's still unsure about what happened with Girl's Generation. Whether they wanted Jessica out, whether SM Entertainment blew themselves up again, or whether something else happened.
Jessica, SM, and Tyler Kwon all released their own statements about the situation but nobody knows who is right and who is or isn't lying. Although I'm 99% sure everyone is suspecting SM Entertainment for lying and for Jessica being so amazing in all SONEs eyes, they will most likely side with her but hey, there are people on everyone's side so let's look at the statements that were released.
"Hello, this is Jessica.
On September 29, I was told by my company to leave SNSD, and I couldn't hide my confusion and pain, so I decided to reveal my stance.
During my time as a SNSD member, SNSD promotions have always been my top priority ahead of my personal life or business. But despite my hard work and dedication to the team, I was given notice to leave my team from the company. Since the beginning stages of the business preparations until recently, I have sufficiently discussed and received understanding from SM and the members on more than one occasion. From early August until the BLANC launching, I received agreement and permission to do business at the same time, and began my business while receiving congratulations from the members.
However, a month after the launching, the members suddenly changed their stances early September and called a meeting, and without proper reason, told me to either quit my business or leave SNSD. I explained that I received permission from the company, have never carelessly carried out SNSD promotions, and cannot stop the business within one month of BLANC's launching due to a business contract with a partner.
As a result, I appealed that making me choose was an unreasonable request. Becoming an SNSD member was the greatest thing in my life and I have never thought about quitting. Still shocked, I visited the company CEO on September 16 and explained my position and I received permission once again to continue my business on the side from the company at that place.
However I received a one-sided notification on September 29 from the company to leave SNSD. Due to this, I was unable to participate in the fan meeting event in Shenzhen, China on September 30, which was the following day. I've been taken out of all SNSD activities. More than anything, I was greatly hurt and couldn't hide my sorrow after being told to leave SNSD by my company and members, whom I've poured out my passion and affection for more than 15 years, just because I started a business.
I want to apologize for causing much worry to the fans even though it wasn't my intention to do. I want to ask for your understanding that this situation isn't something I wanted. I have always cherished SNSD and will continue to do so in the future. Thank you for always supporting me with no end and loving me."

Tyler Kwon Statement:
" Sigh, I guess we'll have to try this yet again; I have no plans of marriage anytime soon, whether it be this year...next year... If that wasn't clear enough, let me know. I'll just keep trying..."
Unlike Jessica's statement his is just about the marriage rumors about them both.
"Hello. This is SM Entertainment.
We are offering our position on the words posted on Jessica's Weibo today.
This coming spring, due to her personal situation, she notified us she will halt her team promotions with the release of one [more] album.
Despite Jessica's sudden notice, the agency and the Girls' Generation members tried our best and tried to figure out a way that Girls' Generation's activities can continue in the best possible direction.
However, in the midst of insufficient negotiations regarding conflicts of differences in priorities and interest, Jessica started her fashion business. Due to this, despite ongoing talks, it has come to a point where the team could not be maintained.
Thus, the agency had no choice but to pull up Girls' Generation's activities as 8 members earlier than planned, and in the midst of while working out when to announce this, Jessica had posted her words early this morning.
From here on, our agency will continue to support and manage the 8-member Girls' Generation and Jessica's individual activities."
Now all these statements are confusing since Jessica is saying she is the victim and I'm not saying she's not, just saying that nobody but SM and Jessica and SNSD really know what's going on.
So personally, I am not really totally interested in this situation but I'm keeping updated on it because it's big news cause it's JESSICA! But we want to know what you guys think as SNSD fans, as SM Stans, as people who don't like SNSD or Jessica, ect. I hope this updated you somewhat, I will post again soon.
Hello, it's Sara giving my opinion on the show Roommate. I would like to say first I loved the original cast so I'm not too excited with the new casting but I will talk about them too.
(Females) Park Bom was the whole reason I started watching Roommate to begin with, But after seeing the first two episodes I fell in love with all the females on set.
Lee Sora, I thought was gonna be mean, snobby, and rich attitude. I didn't like her because of her first introduction to the show, but as I watched I saw she was an amazing person and she treated everyone with full respect.
Ga Yeon on the other hand I questioned why she was there because she wasn't an idol or really famous. She ended up being a very funny and cute person who fit in well with the others perfectly.
Soo Hyun I was fine with because she didn't do much but I did think she only wanted to hang out with the guys. I thought about it and it's just some girls naturally hang out with males very easily and in the end she got very close with the girls and hung out with them a lot more then any one else.
Nana, I really didn't like her most because she gives off the dizzy mean vibe. I really hate those types of girls. But she ended up being one of the best cast members. She's cute and playful and super sweet so there's no reason not to love her.
As for Park Bom I already really liked her but I got to know her very well through this show. She doesn't care if her hair is messed up as soon as she wakes up and she didn't care about her nightly face stickers ether. Her being in 2NE1 changed nothing about how she was on the show. We even saw she was always worried about what to wear outside because she said she wasn't the best at styling and didn't want 2NE1 to look bad because of what she wore so she would always ask the others how it looked.
Starting off with Park Min Woo, I was completely shocked by his personalty because its so different from all his acting roles. At the beginning of the show he didn't show how he really was but as it went on he came to be who he is. I'm happy that he was himself in the end because he can be a jerk at times but that's just how he is. I like him now due to this show.
Next is DongWook, there isn't much to be said about him because he was hardly ever there due to him filming so much. But from what it showed he was very kind and funny and gave his all to the show when he could.
Chanyeol...Yeah he is the reason I can say EXO is ok. because I really hated EXO and all the members. Watching him and seeing the way he acted I really liked him way more then I should. But He was very funny and he always had a smile to give to everyone on the show.
Seho was just funny because hes a comedian, but his love for Nana never dies that's for sure. I say sometimes you would feel bad for him because of when he got upset it was sad to see someone like him get that way. He always kept the show entertaining.
Kang Jun was really quiet and didn't say much but he was very thankful for the house and the food he had there. He did have a great nickname and it was KANG DASH MAN! He was always there randomly with Chanyeol and them together was the best.
Lastly was the man who held them all together Shin Sung Woo A.K.A MAMA SHIN! He cooked every meal and always looked out for Chanyeol's health because Chanyeol was always busy with EXO so Mama Shin made sure Chanyeol stayed healthy. He also made sure no one fought one another and everything was fine.
In the end we see that all these famous people are just humans who struggle like everyone else and they need love just as much as you and I.
Lets talk about the real issue here though is that due to Park Bom leaving everyone else is now separating and leaving. It shows that if they are not a family as they are then they might as well all leave too. It really breaks my heart to see everyone leave because they are a family. Seeing the PDs replacing everyone is sad because this family is surely one of a kind. The new casting is very different from the old ones and there are still some of the remaining cast but it seems that won't last long.
New cast....so far
They haven't fully announced the full new cast yet but with who they have I am not pleased with at all. Why? Because the people they have gotten for it is mainly for acting and not showing who they really are.
It's not that I have anything against Sunny or SNSD but its pretty obvious that they got her for what she's known for. Which is being all smiles and always being happy, so for viewer ratings shes a good match. But she most likely wont ever be able to be sad or cry on the show. She's only there to make the mood for fun and games.
Okay, yes they got this old man who is still stuck in the '90s to join. Why? Because hes funny yes. Am I a fan? Not really, only because I don't find his humor that great. I have a feeling there only using him to make him the "no brainier" of the show.
They have to have a male idol so who else but Jackson. Im not a fan of him and I don't really know him. I will say I don't feel that he will last long. I think that the people who like him a lot might be upset with him in the show in the the end.
I really don't think they should have gotten her at all due to the fact that she's a new comedian and that's all she's gonna do on the show 24/7 and she isn't that funny but more annoying. I just plain out don't like her and I bet she will say something about her weight and say something about how she hates when some one makes fun of her for it.
I know nothing about him all I know is he acts and was in "The Three Musketeers" and "The Joseon Gunman". I did not watch ether one yet but I have a feeling he will be not a good fit with the rest of the cast.
I'll update the list once the rest of the new casting is out but I still like the original casting best and I will forever like it best. They were just so happy and when they fought it was like anyone does with a family. They did there best not to hide anything from each other and the had serious moments and funny moments. They showed us that their lives are not that much different from ours.
This is manly all opinions and some facts on whats going on in south Korea and what we think.
