i hadn't made a good update post in awhile, so!!!! these date back from march when shinee were doing their concerts in north america until today - mostly to celebrate jonghyun rediscovering his instagram password in the last week. there isn't a lot of onew or taemin here because ... onew doesn't pop up on social media that often and taemin is like a phantom unless one of the other members posts something involving him. this isn't every post - i tried to stick to the more interesting or selfie-esque ones. you can just ... check out their instagrams for the ones left out. their ninth anniversary is next week so i'll probably make another one around that day too - more of an appreciation one. you know the drill.

Im Si-wan talks about new film and future plans

Singer-actor Im Si-wan of the now dormant K-pop boy band ZE:A is an up-and-coming talent in Korean cinema.

Im is best known for playing Jin-woo in the film "The Attorney" (2013) and the lead in the cable TV series "Misaeng (Incomplete Life)" (2014), which were both successful in the box office and ratings. He was recently invited to a out-of-competition category of this year's Cannes Film Festival as a co-star of the new crime-action film "The Merciless."

The Return of Superman Ep 181

Donggook disguises himself as an elderly man and appears in front of Seola, Sua, and Sian. Taeyoung and Rohui open a cafe to make money and buy Eugene a gift for Parents’ Day. Sam and William travel to Busan together. Jiyong and Seungjae spend a sweet time together wearing matching outfits.

We got to see a little of everyone this week! Rohee is such a clear speaker now! Not surprised that Taeyoung has a barista certificate lol. Sam, please stop putting food on your child's face. It's really sweet of him to share little treats with other passengers when they travel. Seungjae gets close to some lobsters in Jeju. When he gets back to Seoul, he joins his father in shopping for some dapper suits. SoDa sibilings go to a baseball game to throw out the first pitch and sing the national anthem. Soeul did a great job! Those team mascots were terrifying lol. The twins' segment is called "Sadness alert!", which is pretty damn accurate. It was a little hard to watch, and my heart really goes out to Hwijae.

hoshi's number as a whole isnt a prime number but 223 and 2111 on their own are both prime numbers (in the trailer they're separated, too)! the teasers keep getting creepier but they all look good, so it's ok. the only one left is s.coups!
