On October 16, girl group SHA SHA’s agency Major Entertainment released an official update on member Wanlin’s health. They explained that she has hypokalemia (when potassium levels in the blood are too low) and that she is currently in China to be able to recuperate better.

This is SHA SHA’s agency Major Entertainment.
We would like to give an update on member Wanlin’s health for the fans who have been loving and supporting SHA SHA.
Wanlin was diagnosed by a doctor to be suffering from hypokalemia due to a dysfunction in her kidneys. She has returned to her family and is currently resting.

Wanlin will be committing herself to further medical examinations and treatment in China and we will continue on supporting her so that she will come back to us healthy and sound.
We ask for a lot of interest and support in the future for SHA SHA and for Wanlin who will be returning to the group after her recovery.
Thank you.”

BTS renews contract with Big Hit + BTS takes Buzzfeed's "Which BTS Member Are You?" quiz

On October 18, Big Hit Entertainment sent an email to its company employees and stockholders announcing that BTS had renewed their contract with the agency.

BTS debuted in June 2013 and still had more than a year left on their initial contract. Generally, a contract renewal takes place just before the first contract expires, but in the case of professional sports, an early renewal can be a strategic move when a player is considered extremely valuable.

KPop's cutest art enthusiast V of BTS buys art from 65-y.o. artist while in Dallas, TX

During the group's stop at Dallas, TX, where they were set to perform two sold-out shows at Fort Worth Convention Center, BTS stopped by at Kettle Art Gallery on a rainy evening, where gallery owner Frank Campagna was overseeing the second evening of the Masstige exhibit, featuring works by North Texas artists Jamie Walters, Minji Kang Watrous, Todd Gutmann, and Marc Dominus.

Campagna remarked, “I was with one of the artists, and we both realized that they had security with them. And one of the guys was being followed by a camera crew. I thought ‘Hmm … I wonder who this is?’ They weren’t speaking English, so, I asked the bodyguard and he was like, ‘Oh that’s BTS.’ I thought, ‘Oh cool. I saw them on the news the other day.'”

What would end up being a cool story for Campagna would be an even cooler story for artist Marc Dominusthis would be the first time he ever sold a piece of art to a complete stranger. Marc Dominus describes himself as a “young 65-year-old.” He lives in a house in Little Forest Hills and recently installed a small painting studio in his backyard, and this was the first time his work had been displayed in a professional capacity.

you'd think they'd make it explicitly clear in every language possible and easily accessible where fans should buy albums if they want to group buys to stop. when one single person can compromise the entire integrity of the charts...that's not good.
