junior just right

Broduce 101 fan made group JBJ a very likely possibility; may debut in September!

Some background info from /u/tastetherainbeau on reddit:

After Produce 101 Season 1, a girl group was created with some of the trainees who didn't make it into I.O.I and they were called I.B.I.

For Season 2, fans wanted a group similar to that. So they chose several of the members who were known to be friends and made up JBJ. I've seen some people call it Just Be Joyful. According to /u/julesiephi some fans are calling it 제발 분량 좀 (Jebal Bunryang Jom) ("please give us screentime").

The "members" are:
- Roh Taehyun (Star Crew Entertainment) (#25)
- Kwon Hyunbin (YGKplus) (#22)
- Kim Yongguk (Choon Entertainment) (#21)
- Kim Donghan (Oui Entertainment) (#29)
- Kim Taedong (The VIBE Entertainment) (#30)
- Kim Sanggyun (Hunus Entertainment) (#26)
- Takada Kenta (Star Road Entertainment) (#24)

There is already a strong following for this group. Fans have been making art and teasers for the group as if it really existed. An eating show on V LIVE with 3 of the members gathered 42 million hearts. They are being pressured into actually creating the group, and the members have expressed their desire to do activities as JBJ. The tricky part is getting all of the companies to come together to release an album.

man.. i'm getting pretty excited for this, almost all of these boys were my faves on the show. i was worried about Taedong, because his company wasn't allowing him to do any interviews or post-show activities, but it seems like they're okay with this? so yay!

EXID's Toronto fanmeet cancelled

Canadian entertainment agency Pop! Goes The World! has announced that EXID's planned fanmeet in Toronto has been cancelled. The event was originally planned for May 14, to coincide with Toronto Kpop Con (which also featured fanmeets with KARD and BTOB), but was later delayed to August 5. Fans have speculated that the cancellation is due to low ticket sales; the agency hasn't provided an explanation other than "unforeseen circumstances" and promising buyers a refund.

EXID's previous North American appearances include Los Angeles, USA in May 2015 and Mexico City in March 2017.

LIMESODA - 'Z Z Z' ft. MC Gree Debut M/V

possible trigger warning for trypophobia at 1:30-2: not circles in a formation but animated lips, so not classic trypophobia, but leaving a warning here just in case!

LIMESODA is a new duo from D.Maker Entertainment, consisting of members Hyerim (from Kpop Star 6's girl group, KWINS) and Seungji. On the D.Maker website there is an image of Seungji and Hyerim with two other girls who are faded out, so we might be able to expect more girls to be introdued later this year!
