blind item post! girlgroup member *A* blinded by love, puts promos on backburner to vacation with bf

"Girl group member A broke up with Hallyu star B and began dating a non-celebrity boyfriend. The man is head over heels in love with A. A's agency was lenient with her relationship but she decided to all in on her love completely. She put her work on the backburner to go vacationing with her boyfriend. It was really difficult for the members to be in the middle of it. A has a strong male fanbase and is one of the main factors in the success of her girl group. She also had a lot of complaints and concerns that came with that, though."

this is a tiny bit late - obviously not by much, but it's already the 26th in korea, so. i figured it'd be best to wait until all the anniversary material was out there to us. the fanmeet / party for their anniversary was held last sunday; there's not much material from it though because of banned fantakens, etc. so anything above is all we've got to work with for now.

fast update on what shinee are up to right now: key is obviously filming his drama, lookout, which just started airing earlier this week. onew and minho are currently in singapore, potentially filming for a variety show. taemin is in japan preparing for his solo comeback there and his first solo concert which be at the start of july. jonghyun just finished promoting his recently released album and he's preparing for his new solo concert series - which actually starts today! twenty concerts taking place from today until early july. beyond this: their tour is still ongoing, but it'll probably end soon, and they're slated to have a comeback sometime during the third quarter of the year. (my personal speculation is sometime around september.)

anyway! let's celebrate! favorite songs? favorite albums? favorite variety moments? favorite moments, in general, ot5 and otherwise? favorite photos, videos, quotations, etc.? things that you want for shinee in the coming year?

Yunho and Kyung Soo Jin Cast in New Drama

The PD of Oh Hae-young Again and Introverted Boss has announced his next drama, titled Meloholic, and already we have casting confirmation for both its leads: Yunho in his post-army comeback (he completed his service last month), and Kyung Soo Jin as his co-star.

Meloholic, despite its title, is not described as a melodrama and is instead a “romantic mystery comedy.” Based on a Naver webtoon of the same name, the drama features a man with the ability to read people’s minds (Yunho’s character Yoo Eun-ho), who’s described as a man who makes all the women’s hearts flutter but does not date. The story kicks off when he meets Kyung Soo Jin’s character, Han Ye-ri, who has never dated because her two-faced personality has gotten in the way of romance.

Kyuhyun begins military service

Kyuhyun, member of K-pop group Super Junior, on Thursday began his two-year compulsory military service. The 29-year-old singer was admitted to the Army boot camp in Nonsan, 213 kilometers south of Seoul at 2 p.m. for his three-week basic military training.

After receiving his training, Kyuhyun will fulfill his duty as a commuting public service worker due to physical injuries from a car accident in 2007.

"Can't get used to this. Don't be sick, don't cry and stay well!" Kyuhyun wrote on Twitter while also posting a photo of himself with his hair cut short. The singer added, "Until we meet again, good bye for now." Kyuhyun released his digital single "Goodbye for Now" on Wednesday on the eve of the beginning of his military service.

All able-bodied Korean men are required to complete 21 months of military service before the age of 35 in South Korea.

Kyuhyun debuted in 2006 through Super Junior. Outside of music, he's also become a well-known TV celebrity by appearing in several hit shows, including MBC TV's "Radio Star."

I think he looks nice with his haircut.
