In today's who asked for this: Trash Yoochun To Release New Album Without Plans For Promotions

JYJ’s Park Yoochun will be releasing new music soon.

On January 21, a source from his agency, C-JeS Entertainment, stated to Xsportsnews, “Park Yoochun is preparing for the release of his first studio album. The album is definitely coming out, but we hesitate to call this a comeback for now.”

The statement continued, “The album is being released in honor of his concert in March so that he can communicate better with his fans. Apart from the concert, he has no plans to officially promote the album.

The March concert will be held at the Seoul Coex Auditorium.

Park Yoochun was discharged from his mandatory military service in the summer of 2017. At the end of 2017, his legal battles came to an end with the resolution of the defamation lawsuits that he filed against women who accused him of sexual assault. He was acquitted of those charges.

Following his discharge from the army, he has held a fan meeting in Japan and various online broadcasts to communicate with his fans.

Jungkook mentions Downy fabric softener - product trends on naver and sells out in South Korea



On January 20, Jungkook paid a visit to the official fan cafe of BTS and chatted with his fans. While on the topic of laundry, fans asked the idol what products he uses to do laundry, and Jungkook shared the brand of fabric softener that he currently uses.

Immediately afterwards, ARMYs showed their desire to use the same fabric softener as the BTS member. It soon led to a shortage of the product, and the product’s name topped Naver’s realtime search rankings.

In response, Jungkook took to Twitter and said, “ARMYs… I’m almost out of my fabric softener and have to buy a new one… [but] it’s all sold out.” The member also included a hashtag that said, “ARMY is impressive.”

DIA fans are concerned about Jenny's absence



DIA's Jenny has been missing from the public eye and group activities since early December with no word from MBK Entertainment or the other members, and fans are worried. Her last Instagram post was on Dec. 5th. DIA have appeared as a group without Jenny numerous times since then, including a bit on "The Return of Superman", a recent photo op with rookie group ZGirls, and a guest appearance at Hwang Chi Yeol's concert on Dec. 29th.
MBK have also failed to deliver on a promised November comeback for DIA, and have not made any kind of statement about that either. Given the departure of Eunjin from the group last year, some fans suspect that Jenny may be leaving the group and MBK is delaying the reveal. The tag #MBK우리는다이아몬드를원니다 (op's translation attempt: "MBK, we want our DIAmond") is being circulated on Twitter as fans attempt to get a response from MBK.
