Lovelyz's Jisoo Opens Up About Her Depression During Their Concert

unfortunately, i can't find the original tweet, so i hope the translated version is okay, mods. it breaks my heart knowing that she doesn't have anyone to talk to & that she feels extremely low on herself. the hashtag (#서지수사랑해) is trending, so hopefully she sees that she is loved. If you need someone to talk to, please don't hesitate to do so. You can contact a direct hotline number (which I will put under a cut because the list is long).

The Return of Superman Ep 211

This week’s episode of The Return of Superman is titled, ‘I Cheer on Your Courage’. Donggook and the five siblings become runway models of a charity fashion show and experience the chaos of a backstage. Sam uses his wits to help William who gets exhausted while enjoying the food tour in Japan. Meanwhile, Jiyong finds enlightenment of raising a child through Seungjae’s creativity test.

Oh God, I couldn't stop laughing at the end of the twins' mission to meet their mom lol. William and Sam are still in Japan, and they go shopping for snacks and presents to bring home. Jiyong takes Seungjae for some testing. Why are they always testing the kids? So many different tests we've seen over the years. Seojun and Seoeon also meet with Kahi and her son Noah. He's a big baby lol.

Hyorin & Taeyang Wedding Vol. 1*

* “Vol. 1” in the “GD&TOP Vol. 1” sense…we may see a follow up post to this, maybe not. Unlike other celebrity weddings, Youngbae and Eunran did not have a formal press conference or photo shoot with the media before the start of the ceremony. And even after a couple of days, most of the guests haven’t shared much. But there have been a few pics and vids out, so thought I’d share some now. Because once they all start coming out, I won’t be able to keep up. I’m already overwhelmed lol.

Jumping ahead to their first dance. Because Youngbae looks so happy, and Hyorin is soooo lovely…YES GIRL YOU TWIRL AROUND IN THAT GOWN LIKE THE DAMN PRINCESS YOU ARE.

Ahhh, nothing like spending hours on a wedding post to remind you of how alone you are. But I got some takeout pad see ew and I got a feeling a wedding ot5 photo is coming soon.

Oricon interview: JYPE Japan director talks about marketing TWICE for a Japanese audience

On their way to Kouhaku: TWICE’s company director talks Japanese expansion and the circumstances surrounding their big break

Beginning with 2PM, JYP Entertainment Japan has continued their streak of successes with this year’s massive breakout hit TWICE, appearing for the first time at the 68th Kouhaku Uta Gassen and surpassing 200,000 sales of their Japanese debut single “One More Time” within its first week of release. We spoke to the company’s representative director, Shannen Song (Song Jieun), about the promotional strategy behind TWICE’s breakthrough and how they cultivate artists.

Careful target analysis ahead of TWICE’s Japanese debut

―― TWICE made their Japanese debut just this year and have already become a quick success. Can you tell us about how you achieved this?
Ever since their Korean debut, the response from Japanese consumers has been great. We saw even from YouTube analytics that Japanese viewers were accessing their videos in almost real time to the Korean release. With that in mind, we conducted quite serious target analysis as to how they might be received in Japan even before their Japanese debut had been decided.

source: Oricon, my translation

This is about a month old (published the day before TWICE appeared on Kouhaku), but I didn't see it translated anywhere and it goes into some interesting stuff about how JYPE approaches marketing and planning for their groups in Japan, plus some other discussion about how they operate as a company. IDK if I agree that they haven't changed TWICE for the Japanese market ugh the Candy Pop MV but I liked this look into JYPE's perspective on them and how they're factoring that into their branding.

Teasers for "Laughter in Waikiki"

"Laughter in Waikiki" is centered around the foibles of a threesome of friends who aren’t quite yet where they want to be in life but “dream of freedom” as they run a guesthouse together. At the center of the trio is “icon of misfortune” Dong-gu, played by Kim Jung-hyun, who dreams of being a film director and had some early success with short films, but the world has been tough on him and turned him cynical. His irrepressible friend Joon-ki (Lee Yi-kyung) dreams of being an actor but so far is stuck mostly doing extra work.

Sohn Seung-won is the third friend, Doo-shik, a “freelance writer who’s half-unemployed”. Altogether, none of the guys has had any luck in any of their endeavors, but hope that they’ll have better luck running the Waikiki guesthouse and be able to finance their own film project. But then a mysterious baby and single mother make their appearance, and kick off an unpredictable and comical series of ups and downs.

Laughter in Waikiki premieres Monday, February 5 on JTBC.
