"아이 윌 파이트 (i will fight)" is an r&b ballad with lyrics that have someone pledging to themselves that they will "overcome and win over the current situations" they're facing. "이지 투 러브 (easy to love)" is a house r&b song that combines "a groovy synthesizer and a sweet electric piano melody that honestly expresses the feeling of being lonely alone but too afraid to start a relationship". "미워 (the duty of love)" is a pop rock song (with the korean title of "i hate you") that involves someone "cutely" complaining to a selfish lover. "디스 라이프 (this life)" is a progressive house song with a message similar to crape diem or yolo.

Weekly Idol Hosts are leaving the show in 2019 - show will be restructured



On November 21, it was announced that MBC every1 will be restructuring “Weekly Idol” again next year. This comes after large changes to the show in 2018, when longtime hosts Jung Hyung Don and Defconn and producing director (PD) Kim Jin left “Weekly Idol.”

The show then brought in Lee Sang Min, Kim Shin Young, and Yoo Se Yoon as MCs, and they have been hosting since April.

MBC every1 has now confirmed that with the upcoming restructuring of “Weekly Idol,” they’re planning to change the current MC team as well as the PD and writer. “As the restructuring is planned for January of next year, the MCs who will be taking over have not yet been decided,” the network stated. “It is also unknown when the final episode with the three MCs will air.”

2018 Asia Artist Awards Popularity Award fan voting results

Artist: BTS (23.9%)
Male actor: EXO Sehun (33.5%)
Female actress: IU (52.6%)

There was some controversy during the voting process as Yoona's fans accused the AAA of deleting their votes (she won the Popularity Award in 2016 and 2017)...which made them especially mad because the votes were purchased. After repeatedly asking for feedback, they decided to boycott AAA and demanding for a refund.

BTS achievements post

BTS now has a platinum single in the United States, as well as their first gold album!

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has now announced that BTS’s “MIC Drop” has gone platinum. According to the RIAA’s website, the track has reached 1 million “units,” with a certification date of November 9. One permanent digital download counts as one unit, and 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams count as one unit.

BTS previously became the first Korean group to receive gold certification when “MIC Drop” achieved the feat in February, and they’re now the first Korean group to receive a platinum certification. In 2013, PSY’s “Gangnam Style” was the first single by a Korean artist to reach the RIAA’s platinum certification standards, and it went on to go five times multi-platinum. “MIC Drop” is now the second track ever by a Korean artist to score platinum certification from the RIAA.

In addition, BTS’s 2018 album “Love Yourself: Answer” and its title track “IDOL” have both been certified gold by the RIAA. A gold certification is earned by a release that reaches 500,000 units.

“Love Yourself: Answer” is the first album by a Korean artist to be certified gold, while “IDOL” is BTS’s fourth single to receive gold certification, following “MIC Drop,” “DNA,” and “Fake Love.”



Congratulations to BTS!

GOT7 Jinyoung changes IG handle + profile picture, to the disbelief of fans



If there's one thing GOT7 Jinyoung is known for in the fandom, it's basically whatever the opposite of social media savvy is. Before this he hasn't had a profile pic in his IG acc since the day he created it in 2015 I think, and nowadays doesn't post anything on it unless JYPE forced him he wants to promo something (he also deleted his twitter last year because he didn't feel he had any use for it). The absolute zero energy this man puts into his social media presence is no surprise, and is disgruntedly accepted by his fans.

So that's probably why earlier today everyone was shocked to find that Jinyoung had changed his IG handle and uploaded his first ever profile picture.

It has been less than a week since Jinyoung decided to join the #FreeTheNipple movement in last week's Pepsi concert and once again people just can't believe he's doing something different from his usual self so they be wildin' on twitter with these theories... Let's just say these few days have been a interesting time. Also OP would like to believe he wasn't hacked I mean, let's hope not right?


omona, is your bias so set in their ways that when they decide to make a change you think it's a scam? Are you an avid social media user?



Edit: Youngjae used his new @ in an insta post, he's not hacked! lmaoo
