UEE Leaves After School



With the expiration of her exclusive contract with Pledis just around the corner, UEE has decided to leave After School.

On May 31, UEE announced on her official fan cafe that she will be graduating from After School and penned a handwritten letter to fans and her fellow group members.

In her letter, UEE said, “It seems like it was just yesterday that I debuted through After School but it has already been eight years since then. My fellow members who were high schoolers at the time are now college students and my occupation has changed as well.”

Another One Bites the Dust: Soyul Withdraws From Crayon Pop



Girl group Crayon Pop will be continuing as a four-member group.

On May 31, a source from Crayon Pop’s agency stated, “Crayon Pop will be promoting as a four-member group without Soyul. There are no plans to have a replacement member. After Soyul withdrew from the group, they continued to promote as four members.”

The source continued, saying, “We are discussing contract renewals with Ellin, Geummi, Choa, and Way after their contracts expired. Rather than focusing on Crayon Pop’s comeback, we are focusing on the members’ individual activities.”

Meanwhile, Crayon Pop made their debut with “Saturday Night” in 2012. In February 2017, former member Soyul got married to Moon Hee Jun and recently gave birth to a baby girl.

Gain vs. haters. (Instagram updates - media heavy)

Today Gain posted a lot of pictures/screen caps of negative comments on articles about her health since she was admitted to the hospital.
There were no details about her diagnosis so people were speculating things such as marriage, pregnancy and abortion.

As always, Gain never stays quiet when these things occur.



caption trans: Look forward to the next 2 hours

(she literally posted this before spamming the below posts lmao)

In the end, Gain has been diagnosed with pneumonia, insomnia, and an anxiety disorder that causes panic attacks.
Bonus: Comments she left on her posts today.
And some more.

Xander hosted episode 16 solo, and Ashley handed episode 17. That color wax looked so pigmented on his hands! I've never been much of a glitter makeup fan, so I'll pass. I loved everything in episode 17 though! That nail shop looked so nice, and so did Ashley's nails! I also like how they always highlight different makeup artists in every episode.

Seulgi and Irene for High Cut

Red Velvet’s Irene and Seulgi had the chance to speak their mind as well as participate in a summer pictorial with High Cut.

During the interview portion, they spoke candidly about the recent changes in their mindset.

In particular, Irene mentioned that there have been changes in the way she has been approaching food. She said, “Before, I used to eat anything as long as it wasn’t terrible. Now, I love eating delicious food. I’ve been asking my mom to teach me how to cook, and I just learned how to make the broth for party noodles.”

That hasn’t been the only change; Irene also has become more extroverted than before, as she confessed, “At some point, instead of just trying to do my work, I have been approaching it more happily. I even go outside to exercise. I sometimes even ask the other members to watch movies with me.”

Seulgi found that there have been some changes in her mindset too, as she deals with people around her. She said, “If I could turn back time, I think I would go back to my first year of middle school. When I became a trainee at [SM Entertainment], I was very withdrawn. It wasn’t like the company stopped me from doing anything, but I felt like I shouldn’t do anything that stood out. I even put up walls, thinking, ‘Do people only like me because I’m a trainee?’ I would like to go back to that time and tell myself that it’s okay not to do that.”

You can find the full pictorial and thoughtful interview with Red Velvet’s Irene and Seulgi in the 199th issue of High Cut.
