Flashback Friday

Every week I go through the charts for this day in a past year and share the top three songs. Then, I pick out two more as honorable mentions. Let’s see who was on top for the 4th week of June, 2009. The top three songs have already been posted, so we’ll see some live performances. Look how big the sets were at MBC back then! So much room to run around!

#3 Outsider “Loner”
I feel like this was his one big hit. It did really well and was on the charts for weeks. I’ll always remember it because of how fast he is.

Inconsistencies found in sexual assault accusation against Dongho + Pledis responds (updated)

NU’EST‘s Baekho was recently accused of molesting a girl eight years ago on a bus ride home from cram school. The accusation was posted up online by the alleged victim and Pledis Entertainment only issued a general warning against false rumors, which didn’t help the situation.

Now though, the alleged victim’s initial post about this incident back in May was found and netizens began to point out inconsistencies in that story, especially when compared to the new post.

Park Bo Gum and Jang Nara's Agencies Deny Marriage Rumors

Over a year after first denying dating reports, rumors have linked Park Bo Gum and Jang Nara once again.

A recent rumor spread that the actors were spotted together on Cheongdam Wedding Street and that they are preparing for a wedding. On June 23, Park Bo Gum and Jang Nara’s agencies responded, “It does not make any sense. We don’t know why these kinds of rumors are being spread without even evidence,” and emphasized, “The reports are false.”

Park Bo Gum and Jang Nara both starred in KBS drama “I Remember You” in 2015. Rumors were first spread in early 2016 and heightened when Park Bo Gum wore a ring to a fan sign for “Reply 1988.” Back then, Park Bo Gum revealed in an interview, “It was surprising seeing dating rumors with Nara” and shared that they are good friends.

Meanwhile, Park Bo Gum is taking a break and working on selecting his next project, while Jang Nara was last reported to be filming for drama “Housewife Detective” until production was paused in April.

Choa clarifies her leaving AOA has nothing to do with her relationship

After Choa announced that she would be leaving AOA on social media, there have been many speculations as to why she may be doing so.

In her post, Choa explained that she was leaving AOA because she was suffering from depression and insomnia. However, on June 23, SportsSeoul* released photos of Choa with Lee Seok Jin, the CEO of Najin Corporation. The pictures had been taken on their way back from a personal trip to Japan they took between May 3 to May 9. They were also accompanied by Choa’s two sisters.
*people are speculating @/_straightsmiles sold those pics 1 2

While Choa denied that they were dating last month, the two look quite close in the photos, making many wonder whether there was another reason why Choa may want to leave the group.

After these speculations surfaced, Choa took to her Instagram once again to deny these rumors. Here is the full translation of her post:

[Meanwhile FNC...]
Although AOA’s Choa wrote on her Instagram that she will be leaving the group, her management company, FNC Entertainment, denied that this is confirmed.

They said to Mydaily News on June 22, “In terms of leaving the team, we are in the process of talking about it. It has not been decided. We will be deciding on the future steps after more discussion.”

Meanwhile, after several speculations that she may be leaving the team, Choa wrote moments earlier on her social media that she will be leaving AOA due to depression and insomnia.

i saw some speculation that boa's "comeback" is actually just a digital single that won't be promoted because she has some schedules coming up in japan so i don't know how accurate that is. and it's also being said that nct 127 is finishing their promotions next week so people are assuming that not only leaves open a comeback window for red velvet but exo as well. some people are expecting teasers as early as the 27th, the day after boa's song is released. i, for one, wouldn't be surprised!!

Lee Byung Hun Confirmed for Kim Eun Sook Drama

OP note: I couldn't find a good source to use with more info on the casting, so the following info is from a month ago when it was announced KES was writing a new drama

Kim Eun Sook announced her new drama, a period piece set at the turn of the twentieth century titled Mr. Sunshine. The drama is set in 1900 to 1905, and tells the story of a soldier in the righteous army falling in love with an aristocrat’s daughter. It begins in 1871 when the hero boards an American military ship as a little boy during the Shinmiyangyo, a U.S. military expedition to Korea that resulted in a battle. He lands in the U.S. and then years later returns to Korea as an American soldier, to the country that abandoned him. While stationed in Korea, he’ll meet and fall in love with a nobleman’s daughter.

The term “righteous army” refers to Korea’s long history of commoners taking up arms to protect their country against foreign invaders, dating back to Goryeo. The righteous army made a comeback in 1895 to 1905 as Japan imposed more and more control over Korea, and eventually became the backbone of the independence movement’s guerilla militia during the Japanese occupation.

Mr. Sunshine is planning to air in spring or summer of 2018.

Lol at this casting. I'm glad I don't have to suffer through another KES drama just because I like an actor in it. It's already crossed off my list.
