Baek, Chanyeol and others form Bowling League

Bowling is apparently back in fashion so obviously everyone's favorites are forming a bowling association!

The bowling league named Team One was formed by 30 celebrities including EXO’s Chanyeol and Baekhyun, Choi Tae Joon, Super Junior’s Shindong, FTISLAND’s Lee Hong Ki, Girl’s Day’s Yura, Tei, U-KISS’s Hoon, Lee Seok Hoon, ZE:A’s Kim Dong Jun, Bae Seul Gi, g.o.d’s Son Ho Young, Kang Sung Min, former rhythmic gymnast Shin Soo Ji, musical actor Min Woo Hyuk, and more. The team will be led by captains Son Ho Young and Chae Yeon and sub-captains Min Woo Hyuk and Bae Seul Gi.

Chae Yeon and Lee Hong Ki previously gained attention for trying out for the professional bowling selection matches last year. Some members of the team have already been bowling professionally, making it through selections and competing.

In addition to holding regular events, Team One will also host various special events with citizens to help out those in need and come up with many programs to make bowling a more popular sport.

Son Gain hospitalized.

On May 23, Mystic Entertainment took to Brown Eyed Girls’s official fancafe to say, “We are writing to announce that Gain will unfortunately not be attending the event she was scheduled to appear at on May 24 due to her health.”

They continued to write, “Though she had hoped to attend the event as she has had to suddenly cancel her previously scheduled activities, Gain plans to rest and receive hospital treatment at the recommendation of her doctor.”

The agency also promised they would update fans on the singer’s condition should anything change.

Armed with confidence strengthened from experience, WINNER Lee Seunghoon’s existence appears even in swaying shadows. Discontinuous accidents, shattered time, and mad cheers made people forget his real self.

Kim Tae Hee and Rain are expecting!

Kim Tae Hee and Rain are going to be parents!

On May 23, Kim Tae Hee’s agency Ruach Entertainment stated, Kim Tae Hee is currently 15 weeks pregnant, so she has to be careful for the time being. However, rather than having the news be released as medical treatment, she believes that it is her duty to be the one to share the news to everyone who has cheered her on.”

Her agency continued, saying, “She will be focusing on prenatal education and plans to work hard as a wife and a mom.”

Meanwhile, Rain and Kim Tae Hee officially tied the knot at a cathedral in January of this year.

Congratulations to the couple!

[OMONA DISCUSSION] Why are girlgroups at a greater risk of disbanding?

The past 17 months have seen the disbandment of many popular K-Pop girlgroups. A total amount of 11 girlgroups have ended their career, compared to only 4 boygroups. What's even more shocking is that many girlgroups were still successful and profitable acts with a huge fandom, making it hard for fans to understand why their faves would leave the scene for good. This post is trying to find answers to the question why so many girlgroups have called it quits in the past, and which team is most likely to be the next one.
Collapse )
Girlgroups that have announced their disbandment in the past 17 months are KARA, The ARK, 4MINUTE, RAINBOW, 2NE1, Wonder Girls, SPICA, MIXX, T-ara, Crayon Pop and SISTAR. Many were predictable, some were surprises. Which team do you think will announce their break-up next, OMONA? Take part in the poll and discuss in the comments below!
