How small must Quicny's part be for C-JeS to have to quote it? No matter what, I'm super excited for the Incredible MV!!! Is it going to have the same feeling as Tarantallegra? I hope so!

Areum denies being possessed by evil spirits and failed exorcisms lead to her departure from T-ara

Former T-ara member Areum has spoken up about recent rumors that have appeared concerning the 'real reason' behind why she left the group to go solo.

As ridiculous as it sounds, rumors say that Areum was suffering from a bad case of spirit possession. Supposedly, the only path to cure herself of the paranormal disorder is to become a shaman, and her family has been attempting to exorcise her. There are also speculations that she hasn't been acting like her normal self, and so it was impossible for her to continue with T-ara.

She took to her Instagram to comment on the rumors - "Come on~ Don't stick yourself into another person's life when you don't even know the full story. You didn't even see it with your own eyes and you didn't hear it from me personally. Is that okay to do? This isn't right. I'll treat you to a meal, so please contact me directly to tell me who started this talk. I don't want it to end badly. I won't explain. I'm okay as long as I know it's not true. I won't say this twice. You'll think what you want anyway since it's not your life. But as Ahreum, who can't live without her dreams, I'm posting this bravely. From today forward, don't bother my boss or agency members/family."

In an interview with Osen, Areum clarified, "I'm happy and doing well, so I'm not sure why this news came up. I just had some sashimi and was having a good time hanging out when the headlines shocked me."

In regards to rumors about her suffering due to side effects from a diet being coupled with an unstable family life, she added, "There are no negative effects of a diet. The choreography for T-ara N4's 'Countryside Life' was really intense, so I did lose 13kg (28 lbs) during promotions. I'm very healthy though."

On the rumors that she's possessed by a spirit, she laughed stating, "Since the rumors are already out there, I'll make sure to hold a haunting performance."

"I'm thankful to my agency for the solo promotions, and it's a very happy time for me right now. I ask that you look forward to my future activities."

Areum's mother has also mentioned that she will be taking legal action against whoever started the rumors. She stated, "We're currently looking into finding a lawyer."

JYPE had no idea of Sunye's plans + Sunye and husband to leave Korea in August

Wonder Girls’ Sunye recently revealed her plans of going to Haiti as a missionary. A representative from her agency, JYP Entertainment, addressed the matter with TV Daily through a phone conversation on July 10. The representative said, “After Sunye got married, she told us that for the time being, she’d like to focus on her marriage life. It’s not necessary for her to discuss her personal life with us. The missionary plans are part of her personal life, so we didn’t ask about them. It’s something we don’t really know about.

Happy 3rd anniversary Running Man! A Cho Hyo Jin PD Interview

For the numerous fans of SBS's 'Running Man', July 10 was a very special day as it marked the third anniversary of the exhilarating action-variety program. To commemorate the occasion, No Cut News held a special interview with the lead producer, Cho Hyo Jin, to take a small breather after three years of nonstop running.

- What are your thoughts on commemorating the third anniversary?

Neither Yoo Jae Suk nor I could've imagined that we would last this long. (laughter) We're very grateful. We always discuss ideas and try to attempt new things every week. Sometimes we get a good response. We're thankful to the viewers for helping us for the past three years.

- Is there a special episode planned to mark the occasion?

We've already shot episodes that will air past the three-year mark. However, we're still debating whether or not to prepare a special anniversary episode. If we film a special episode, the expectations would be very high. But we do think that if we can come up with something to fit the occasion, we should film it.

Teen murderer's SNS accounts uncovered by netizens

A follow up to this post
The victim's name is Yongin

These articles are about his SNS posts he left following the murder and netizens digging up his identity.

After the murder: "I'm dried out of any emotions that can be felt by human beings. I didn't feel any guilt today at all, not even sadness or anger. Nothing but a short smile. Today, I'll fall asleep buried under the smell of blood."

3 minutes later: "I wanted to be a **** today. So I was a **** today."

"I didn't have any feelings of hate or positivity. Hate me. I want to go to hell. I have a person I want to bring to hell with me."

"I'd like to praise your bravery for staring into my eyes until your very last moment. Thank you for letting me know through your gaze that you weren't scared at all."

Later that afternoon, on the bus to meet a friend: "Cherry blossoms are a scent that you miss no matter how much you smell it. It smells nice from here on the bus. I feel at rest."

Four hours before he turned himself in (6:28): "My heart feels at rest today. I may get hate, people may be disappointed in me, but yeah, I'm a bad guy. Let's just take this easy."

Ilgan Sports and distribution companies delve into the issue of 'digital sajaegi'

The reality behind 'digital sajaegi' has finally been exposed. Ilgan Sports was able to pick up an exclusive copy of a report written by a large-scale distribution company on their response to handling digital sajaegi. The report contains information regarding the main brokers who are the leaders of the digital sajaegi phenomenon, as well as the related expenses and the legal issues involved.

With the report containing as much information as it does, we predict a considerable amount of controversy to hit the music industry soon. Songs that were targeted to be abusing the sajaegi system include a number of the biggest hit tracks of the year, making it a bigger shock to come. Hit tracks are essentially not becoming hits through the love of fans but through outright manipulation.
