INFINITE Sunggyu Fractures Ribs in Singderella



INFINITE‘s Sunggyu has reportedly been injured and may not be able to participate in the group’s comeback promotions.


Reports are coming out that Sunggyu has fractured his ribs while filming an episode of variety show Singderella. During the show, contestants compete while singing and dancing in order to win food.

Due to his injury, Sunggyu will most likely not be able to participate in INFINITE’s Japanese promotions in April and Korean promotions in May.

Infinite is trying to minimize the impact Sunggyu’s injury has on the group’s promotions by modifying their activities to accommodate for his injury. Woollim has already discussed modifying the group’s music video filming scheduled for March 30 to put less stress on Sunggyu’s injury. The official said,

“Sunggyu cannot dance to the choreography due to severe pain in his ribs. Due to the fact that he will not be able to dance with his members we are probably going to have to change the content of the music video.”

*sigh* Most likely the last comeback before he enlists and he won't be able to enjoy it.

Omona's Picks: 10 Wonderful Wonder Girls B-Sides You Probably Haven't Listened To

omonaspicks
While the Wonder Girls are now unfortunately a thing of the past, it doesn't mean they can no longer be celebrated. They're known for changing the K-Pop game forever with their monster hits, such as Tell Me and Nobody, that everyone and their grandma knows, but that wasn't all these 7 (yes, I counted Hyuna) lovely ladies contributed to the music scene in their 10 years of being wonderful. I chose to curate a playlist of 10 of Wonder Girls' b-sides that I wish would recieve more love and I figured Omona would be a great place to share it, what with Sohee being Omona's mascot and all.

Nam Ji Hyun Confirmed to Star with Ji Chang Wook in New Drama



Nam Ji Hyun has accepted the offer for "Suspicious Partner" (formerly titled "Be Careful of This Woman"), costarring with Ji Chang Wook. Actor Choi Tae Joon has also confirmed his role in the drama.

The new mixed-genre legal thriller rom-com comes from the writer of I Remember You and tells the love story of a man and woman who are being chased by a killer. Nam Ji Hyun will play Eun Bong Hee, a judicial trainee and former Taekwondo athlete who finds herself a suspect in a murder case. Ji Chang Wook plays Noh Ji Wook, a young man who became a prosecutor to fulfill his father’s dreams. He carries a trauma from his past, and he’ll end up changing careers to become a private attorney. Choi Tae Joon will play an attorney who has been friends with Noh Ji Wook since childhood. Complicating matters is an amnesiac killer who keeps reenacting one crucial moment, and is out to kill our two leads.

"Suspicious Partner" is scheduled to follow "Saimdang, Light’s Diary" on Wednesdays and Thursdays in May.

This is the same drama that was originally courting Lee Sung Kyung, but she turned it down. I adored Nam Ji Hyun in Shopping King Louis, so I'm excited about this pairing. I trust the writer of I Remember You to give me something great. It's going to be hard to separate Choi Tae Joon with his Missing Nine character, but apparently he's real life BFFs with JCW so it's cute they get to be in a drama together.
