There were little to no votes or noms for 2000 - 2005, so I'm not sure why there were a lot of votes to keep it.
Anyway, an extra song was added from the 2014 - 2016 era per the most votes.

SES together for Bada's wedding shoot




Fashion media Elle Bride released bride-to-be Bada’s beautiful wedding photoshoot.

In January, Bada announced her marriage through Instagram, and she will be having her wedding on March 23rd at Yakhyun Catholic Church. To support newly bride Bada, S.E.S members Eugene and Shoo gathered together to take the wedding photos together.

During the interview after the photoshoot, Bada confessed that she was attracted to kindness of her soon-to-be husband, who is 9 years younger than her. She said, “He thinks in a way that I couldn’t when I was his age. He is not only positive, but also rational at the same time. On the other hand, I am very sensitive. So in that way we are perfect for each other”.

She continued and said, “Marriage is just one of the numerous choices we make in life. I just chose someone I love, and I chose marriage as part of the process that we stay together. I believe I can do better as a person ‘Bada’. I hope I can sing peacefully when I get married and get more relaxed”.

Dispatch Can’t Decide Which One Of The Two Female Idols Is More Stunning


IOI
‘s Somi and TWICE‘s Tzuyu youthful, natural beauty makes it difficult to decide whose visuals are the strongest; recently, even Dispatch couldn’t choose between these two young idols.


Somi and Tzuyu were both propelled into early stardom by their undeniable beauty and adorable personality and the pair have won the hearts of fans both in Korea and abroad.


Their fresh youthful faces have shocked fans as many learn they are much younger than they first appear as Somi was born in 2001 making her only 15 years old while Tzuyu was born in 1999 making her 17 years old. Their mature yet youthful image has left fans both young and old in awe.


Although they are both considered rookie idols their youthful makeup looks and style has already set new trends as they have become two of the leading faces in Korea.

Produce 101 Season 2 to start filming this weekend



The sequel to Mnet’s competition show to build an idol group, season two of “Produce 101,” has finally settled its casting.

The program experienced difficulties in casting as agencies hesitated on allowing their trainees to join the program. Three entertainment giants -- S.M. Entertainment, JYP Entertainment and YG Entertainment -- announced in January that their trainees would not participate in the program. Other agencies also hesitated on confirming their participation, putting the program in jeopardy.

On Monday, a local media outlet reported that Jellyfish Entertainment, Pledis Entertainment, Cube Entertainment and Fantagio Music, the agencies of some of the final 11 winners, would join the program. A representative from Mnet said, “The details about the 101 participants will be gradually disclosed.”

The audition program brings together 101 trainees from local labels to compete for a spot in a new 11-member group. The 11 winners from the first season made their debut as a girl group dubbed I.O.I, which recently disbanded.

The new season will start filming Sunday and hit TV screens within the first half of the year.

OP is too grossed out to come up with a title



Korean actor, businessman and self-claimed artist Yoo Toong, 60, is getting married in March ― for the eighth time ― to a Mongolian woman, 27. Despite decades of failed marriages, Yoo assured in an interview with online news outlet The Fact on Tuesday that "this will be my last marriage."

"Until now, I have lived upon my fidelity (to former wives) and guts. This time, it's different," Yoo said, adding that he is a "little shy and ashamed that my news has grabbed many people's attention."

Yoo, describing his life as similar to that of "an itinerant vendor," admitted his rambunctious lifestyle "may appear abnormal to many" but "holding the wedding, which I see as a joyous festival, at an open space is the most natural to me."

Yoo debuted with a movie in 1987 and was active during the 1980s and 1990s in movies and on television.
