Idol School - This Week's Performances, Current Top 9

In this week's evaluation, the girls performed in teams again but were again evaluted individually. This time, the member with the top votes per group received the benefit of rising three ranks. This will presumably come into play next week, because Mnet didn't show any rankings this week. Ranks next to names here will refer to last week's. There are 28 girls left in this competition.

Kara 'Step': Lee Sian (21), Shin Sia (20), Tasha (26), Bin Haneul (19)
(a lot of low rankers, which surprised me, I thought they would've put someone popular in there to strategically boost their rank)

[Who won the benefit?]The benefit went to everyone's lovable non-dancer, Lee Sian

Idol School has moved to Fridays in what I understand is a thinly-veiled attempt to draw more viewers in for the last four episodes, so this post is late largely because the videos were uploaded late and also I was on holiday. How do you feel these performances compare to the early ones (excluding Rookie) omona?
As for subs, go to _itsrosee_ for episodes and godyoori for other general fluff!


Repackaged albums: Better value or shameless money grab?

A teaser image for K-pop girl group GFriend's upcoming repackaged album "Rainbow" provided by Source Music.

Being a hardcore K-pop idol fan isn't a cheap hobby -- there are albums with lavish pictorial booklets, an endless supply of merchandise and the concerts. After that? Almost always, reprinted albums with bonus content arrive from big-name idol groups.

Productions of repacked albums became a common industry practice in K-pop as early as the mid-2000s. One of the first successful reprints of a previous record was Loveholics' debut album released in 2003. The repackaged record "Re_all Florist" came out in October, six months after the initial album "Florist" came out six months earlier.

"...physical CDs are being increasingly recognized as collectors' items or memorabilia..." that's how I see it, honestly. I'll buy it all lol. I blame my Virgo ass for wanting everything to be in complete collections.

The Return of Superman Ep 198

Sam and Willam visit a character festival together. At the festival, they meet famous actors who are also visiting the festival. For the “Uncle Special”, Seoeon and Seojun spend the day with Junjin and Kangnam. Seola, Sua, and Sian spend time on a deserted island with their dad.

Sian and his sisters go digging for clams. They make little fishing bibs for babies?!? So cute! William and his dad go to Comic Con and reunite with Steven Yeun and meet Mads Mikkelsen. Seoeon and Seojun really wanted to spent the day with a noona, but instead get Kangnam and Junjin lol. Oh God, Seungjae with the octopus when Kim Jongmin was cooking! I feel like Jiyong needs to find a better way to discipline him. He just seems to laugh everything off, like a couple of episodes back with the USB and his laptop.

DIA involved in minor car accident

On September 10, it was revealed through DIA’s Instagram that the group was involved in a minor car accident. Earlier in the day, DIA’s van collided into a car in front of them at around Hannam Bridge.

The caption reads, “We sincerely apologize for being later than the scheduled time at the fan signing in Goyang due to a minor collision.”

They also extend their apologies to those who experienced damages and ask for the understanding of fans if they are slightly late to their fan signing in Incheon at 7:30 p.m. KST.

"The Good Doctor" American trailer

The news of the KBS show remake came out in January, and the American version will make its premiere on September 25th. The trailer first came out three months ago, and I went back a couple of pages but didn't see it, unless I missed it in one of drama roundups from bb keytfelt. The premiere date is coming up, so I've been seeing the commercials all the time now. Staring Freddie Highmore, and executive produced/written by "House" creator David Shore. "Lost" star Daniel Dae Kim is also another executive producer. I think I may have liked the original version? It's been a couple of years.

Kang Ha Neul Enlists :(

Actor Kang Ha Neul is enlisting in the military today, September 11, to begin his mandatory service.

Kang Ha Neul made one last post on his Instagram, looking back on his 20s, bidding farewell, and expressing excitement for the two years to come, with photos of his new military cut given to him in a special ceremony of sorts by his close friends.

I'm really sad about this. I'm glad he's going before he absolutely has to, but I wish he had some good dramas under his belt before he did. Omona, what are your favorite Kang Ha Neul roles and moments? Will you miss this ray of sunshine like I will?
