AKMU's Chanhyuk To Enlist In The Military This Month

Akdong Musician’s Lee Chan Hyuk will be enlisting in the military soon.

On September 13, industry representatives reported that he will be enlisting into the Marine Corps on September 18, explaining that he has always insisted on enlisting at a young age and returning to his activities afterwards.

Although YG initially refrained from revealing much, saying that the enlistment is Lee Chan Hyuk’s personal affair and that he wants to enlist quietly, a different source from the agency later confirmed that the artist is indeed enlisting in the marines on September 18.

Mini Bobby Round-Up: Album Concept, iTunes Charts, iKON Comeback, and More

iKON’s Bobby Talks About His Solo Album’s “Love” Concept

On September 14, iKON’s Bobby released his first solo album, “LOVE AND FALL.” The album has a total of 10 tracks, with double title tracks “I Love You” and “RUNAWAY.” Bobby was involved in writing and composing all 10 tracks. The album has a strong recurring theme of love, which is completely different from what he has shown in Mnet’s “Show Me the Money 3.”

On this change, Bobby commented, “I wrote a lot of songs about love because I wanted to show a different side of me, a soft, sweet, romantic side. For the song ‘I Love You’ I was inspired by a webtoon by Hyunoh. I empathized a lot with a couple that dated for a long time that broke up. I was also inspired by the film ‘La La Land’, portraying love not as a happy ending but as a moment where you meet that can be cool and romantic like a movie. I wanted to express that that was like real life.”

What have you been watching this week, Omona? As always feel free to talk about anything drama related in the comments!

Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! A little late today because I took a nap at my desk after lunch. There might have been cocktails at lunch. Anywho, every week I go through the charts for this day in the past and share the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, let’s see what was on top 3 years ago, in the 3rd week in September, 2014.

#3 Sistar “I Swear”
Summer may be winding down but Summer Queens are still on the charts. Don’t put those cutoffs and crop tops away just yet! One of my personal all time fav Sistar songs, I think they all look gorgeous in the video. I don’t remember this MV at all lol. I think I always get it confused with the “Loving U” video. That was a beachy video too, right?

Idol School - This Week's Performances, Current Top 9, agency problems + upcoming elimination

This week the third evaluation continued, with the girls performing in teams and evaluated individually, with the top-voted member in each group receiving 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 the most recent revealed ranking (31/8). There are 28 girls left in this competition.

Next week's episode will be a 'selection match' that will eliminate 10 students, leaving 18.
The most recent 18-28 ranking was, in order: Lee Dahee, Bin Haneul/Sky, Shin Sia, Lee Sian, Jo Youngjoo, Lee Yoojeong, Kim Myeongji (op: :( ), Seo Herin, Tasha, Choo Won Hee, and Kim Joohyun/Jenny. Kim Eunsuh and Natty ranked 16 & 17.

GFRIEND 'Rough': Jang Gyuri (13), Lee Yoojeong (23), Kim Nayeon (12), Jo Yuri (15), Kim Eunsuh (16)
(fun fact: Nayeon is the same Nayeon who was one of Berry Good's original lineup, and Lee Yoojeong was in myB)

[The benefit went to...]The benefit went to Jang Gyuri, who has clearly converted lots of fans since placing second last within her group during the last evaluation.

This is apparently their final 'exam', so I suppose we will soon find out what the final group's debut songs will be.
Do you believe Mnet's statement omona? Do you think the top 9 is essentially set in stone at this point despite any plots Mnet may try to make it look like it isn't? Can we start a campaign to get Tasha (and Myungji) on The Unit when she is eliminated, since they're now taking publically known trainees? Join us next week for crying over the elimination + complaining about the top 9's lack of talent.

BTOB to join the October comeback line-up!

BTOB is set to join the growing number of singers who will return to the stage in October.

On September 15, it was reported that BTOB would be making a comeback in October with a ballad title track. When contacted to confirm the news, a Cube Entertainment representative stated, “It’s true that BTOB will be making a comeback in October. However, they have not yet chosen a title track.”

It will be interesting to see what kind of song BTOB picks for their fall comeback. They returned to the stage earlier this year in March with “Movie,” a dance track that was met with a positive response. Since then, they have been busy with the launch of their “Piece of BTOB” project, which gave each member the opportunity to release solo tracks that highlighted their individual talents and musical styles.

they've also said it'd be a full album my ears are SO ready!!

TOP Media sues ex-Teen Top member L.Joe for damages due to breach of contract

Teen Top’s management agency TOP Media’s will be suing L.Joe for damages from termination of his exclusive contract. Although it was previously reported that the two sides were attempting to resolve their dispute, it appears that those talks were unsuccessful.

On September 15, a source from TOP Media stated, “It is true that we have recently filed a lawsuit against L.Joe at the Seoul Central District Court for damages from him breaching his exclusive contract.”

Last February, L.Joe terminated his contract with TOP Media and has been working independently in musicals such as “Liar,” “S Diary,” and “Secretly, Greatly.” The other Teen Top members renewed their contracts last December and have been promoting as a group, but L.Joe did not promote despite having time left in his contract.

On July 31, the Korean Entertainment Management Association banned L.Joe from contacting other agencies for the duration of his conflict with TOP Media. However, L.Joe is currently promoting through his musicals.

NCT 127 perform Summer 127 for the first time (with choreo) at Lotte Family Concert

Lotte held its Family Festival today and NCT, as models for the brand, participated alongside Twice, EXO and Apink! This is the first time they perform a full version of Summer 127 with choreography, although they did perform it first without choreo at their fan meeting in Bangkok just several days ago. (I was gonna make a post but fancams were not good, glad I waited tbh) They also performed their usual promoted tracks Cherry Bomb, Limitless and Good Thing. Watch the performances in all their 4k glory below.

Note: Winwin was absent from this concert, reasons unknown.

i love summer 127 so much, it's an instant pick me up!! i'm proud they did it live and the choreo is so cute. 😍 also, i think i took their formations for granted because omg it looks so messy with one empty spot, everything was off centre and it was bothering me let's not do this too often lmao
