OMONA'S SEXIEST WOMEN ALIVE 2K17 - Go on or postpone

Hello everyone.
This is not part of the competition but rather a  post to decide whether or not we should go on with the games.
With the recent passing of Jonghyun, we're all grieving and many of us still haven't fully realized yet. I didn't know if you'd rather keep the game going because looking at pretty ladies is soothing and a nice escape; or if you want me to postpone the games.
So I thought we'd take that decision together.

The post will be active all day today and until 9pm (Paris time)
I'll only post the survival round if we have a clear majority of 'go on'.

This poll is closed.

Should we postpone the games or go on as scheduled

go on as scheduled

Kim Jung Hyun, Lee Yi Kyung and Son Seung Won cast in JTBC drama



JTBC has a new youth drama on the way about a trio of friends just trying to get through life, and it’s called Woohoo Waikiki (the Korean title is Eurachacha Waikiki, and eurachacha is an exclamation of excitement or encouragement, like “woohoo” or “fighting”).

The drama is a laugh-out-loud comedy about three boys who are failing and flailing through life, who come to run a guesthouse called Waikiki. The drama is about their comical adventures as they start running this guesthouse together, where a single mother and a baby will suddenly enter their lives.

Woohoo Waikiki is slated to follow Just Between Lovers on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning in February.

Watching three actors I really like act together and with a baby? This sounds like exactly what I want to watch. Ryu Hwayoung is up for the single mother role but hasn't confirmed.

journalism at its best. they better apologize for this. added their apology

jonghyun has become the moon but is anyone really surprised?



in classic jonghyun fashion: he had to make a statement as we all prepare to say goodbye to him. this is likely going to be my final shinee related post for awhile now and i felt that it would be appropriate to post something lighthearted, especially when there are so many photos from the funeral procession floating around. the moon is pearl aqua, the color of shinee's fandom, in japan today and though i'm not a religious person i feel like that can't be a coincidence. he loved the moon and he loved shinee and he loved shawols and i wanna say that this is his way of saying he's fine and he'll always be watching over us. i found it comforting, in a way, so i wanted to share it with you all. i hope you're all doing well and taking care of yourselves.

Jonghyun & the lovely Ladies



As decided in the previous the post, the games will be postponed until after Christmas.
In lieu of the survival round, I thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of Jjong interactions with our queens.
Jonghyun was not only a wonderful singer but also a great songwriter and producer who work with some of our favorite ladies. He was also a kind soul, cherished by his friends, and we should remember him like that: a truly amazing person, who touched our hearts.

Jonghyun Sung 'Only One You Need' At His Final Solo Concert



I'll be putting a spoiler cut regarding the meaning of the song because it does hit close to home, as well as wanting to respect those who are still grieving & mourning Jonghyun's sudden passing. [Meaning of The Song]The song was the first (and sadly last) time he sung the song. Apparently, he wrote the lyrics for those grieving the loss of a loved one. The Title in Korean (환상 통) means "Phantom Pain".

Quelle surprise! All 9 Stray Kids are going to debut together!~ Most (if not all) of their music on the "survival show" was produced by Chan (aka CB97), they even performed Matryoshka. I guess you can consider this a preview of the future JYPE boy group's sound.
