BRODUCE 101 Contestant Han Jongyeon to leave after current controversy

On March 17th it was revealed by Maroo Entertainment via press release that Han Jongyeon will be leaving Produce 101 due to current controversy arising from his past in primary school.

After the release of his profile for Produce 101, an individual took to SNS to write about the torment they had faced because of Han Jongyeon in primary and middle school. After the post, Maroo Entertainment stated that they had met with the victim and has personally apologized. In addition, he will be taking time off to go into deep reflection.

so it's true he was a bully, but not the sexual abuse aspect of it (if the company statement is to be believed)

First Teasers for 'Chicago Typewriter'

Yoo Ah-in stars as a prickly, sensitive bestselling author who broke out at the age of 21 as a genius writer and is now facing a career slump—he has writer’s block so severe that he can’t write a single word. So at the suggestion of his editor he takes on a ghostwriter, played by Go Kyung-pyo, a character veiled in mystery.

The teasers all take on a typewriter motif, with the characters rotating on a cylinder like they’re being fed through a typewriter. In the first teaser below, Yoo Ah-in says, “I’m star writer Han Se-joo. But… I can’t write.” Go Kyung-pyo offers, “I’ll write for you. But I have one condition…” Yoo Ah-in asks what his terms are and then says in voiceover, “My secret deal with him has begun.”

Omona's picks: f(x)'s ten best older tracks

Amongst international fans, f(x) is probably the most respected girlgroup. The band is known for being hella neglected by SM, but more so for their fantastic repertoire. The Pink Tape and 4 Walls albums in particular have gained legendary status for all the right reasons. Well produced and with great visuals to boot, these two releases regularly pop up in talks about quality Kpop records.

f(x) has, however, been around since 2009 and their discopgraphy consists of many more jams. OP, being the bitter Kpop granny that she is, wishes to bring back a little attention to the girls' earlier work. In this post I list 10 tracks - singles, b-sides, cf songs, ost's - that were released prior to Pink Tape and that also deserve a spot on everyone's f(x) playlist!

Omona, have you been around Kpop long enough to remember anything that happened prior to Pink Tape? Any particular feelings on what I should have included or should have left off of the list? Feel free to fight me in the comments.

They actually did it

The previous record was held by DIA who streamed for 7 hours.The boys also reached 5.5 million hearts on the video so they'll be getting a mini concert.The replay will probably finish uploading by May and you can watch it here

Omona, did you tune in?

Ye Eun clarifies the reasons for WG's disbandment, remains flawfree & reaffirms group bond

* Still unsigned (make you own label girl??)
* The group broke up ultimately because of JYP they were looking out for each other's interests.
* All of them still care about each other and she is certain they will all find success.

This was essentially confirmed when a lot of them showed for Sohee's premiere and she talked about them being a support system but it's still nice to see/hear anyway.
