Defector to South Korea Who Became a Celebrity Resurfaces in the North



Until April, Lim Ji-hyun had been a modest television celebrity in South Korea, talking to the audience about the country she knew best: North Korea. She even had her own online fan club, indicating that she was among the relatively few North Korean defectors who had successfully adjusted to life in the capitalist South.

This week Three weeks ago, Ms. Lim resurfaced in North Korea, tearfully recalling a terrible life in the South.

Every single day of my life in the South was a hell,” Ms. Lim, 26, said in a videotaped interview uploaded on the North Korean government-run propaganda website Uriminzokkiri. “When I was alone in a dark, cold room, I was heartbroken and I wept every day, missing my fatherland and my parents back home.”

Ms. Lim — or Jeon Hye-sung, as she was called in the North — said she returned to “the bosom of the fatherland” last month and was now living with her parents in her hometown.

there's a new challenge in town and everyone is going kokobop about it

EXO's "Ko Ko Bop" has been one of the big hits this Korean Summer, managing to top countless music charts and scoring numerous music show awards. However, the song's success has lead to the rise of a fan challenge that's quickly become the internet's favourite new thing - the "Ko Ko Bop challenge!"

Here's how the challenge works, fans are to film a video of themselves (or someone else) performing the "Ko Ko Bop" dance following the big drop midway through the song (just before the "down down, baby" part!).

At the time of writing, the hashtag #KoKoBopChallenge is already trending on Twitter and countless hilarious videos of fans of all ages performing the challenge across various random locations have already been shared.

Sunny mentions OT9 at SNSD's recent fanmeet

Girls’ Generation made their 10th-anniversary comeback and hosted a fan meeting (Holiday To Remember) to celebrate the occasion with their countless fans.

During one of the fan meet segments, the members were playing a music quiz game. A short snippet of one of their songs would play and they had to guess what the song title was. Sooyoung was overly excited trying to guess the song quickly and asked if this song was maybe sung by 5 members. Sunny chimed in saying that she thought this song was sung by 9 members and then quickly realized what she said and fumbled her words.

They eventually figured out that the song was the official theme song to a movie called “My Friend Haechi” which they released when they were 5 members. Even though Sunny was incorrect that it was 9 members, fans found her cute fumbling when she mentioned nine members touching. Only 5 members including Jessica participated on the soundtrack song and fans loved how Sunny’s mentioning of 9 members made her flustered!

Watch her and Yoona's reaction @ 8:05
