First of the Month First Loves


It’s the first of the month so here’s another First Love post. I still haven’t decided if this is going to be a monthly thing or I’ll just switch out random Flashback Fridays for these. I did a new batch of Flashback Fridays last week and 5 week months are so ugh. Anywho, since we’re all here now might as well do this now, right lol?

Eunhyuk On How Super Junior Fielded Questions About Sex On A Mexican Talk Show

On the April 30 broadcast of MBC every1’s “Video Star,” Super Junior’s Eunhyuk talked about the group’s experience on a talk show in Mexico and questions that had all of the members squirming.

Eunhyuk said, “The host there, without any reservations, asked us about where and how we have sex.”

Asked if it was an adult show, Eunhyuk said, “No, it was just a regular talk show. They asked if we [have active sex lives] and when our last time was. They asked all these things so naturally.”

Why Mnet decided to extend "Produce X 101" contracts to five years

When asked about the contract extension for this season’s debut group, Kim Yong Beom of Mnet explained, “It has been changed so that two and a half years will be spent exclusively promoting with the group, and the other two and a half years can be combined with activities in each member’s respective company.”

He went on to say, “After going through three seasons, our biggest goal was to fix some of the issues. In I.O.I’s case, they stopped activities after not even a full year. With Wanna One, they rose to become a global group, but there were a lot of regrets because the contract period was so short. It was a shame that, even though Wanna One went on a world tour, international fans were only be able to see them once in their lifetimes.”

“Produce X 101” will begin airing on May 3 at 11 p.m. KST and run for 12 episodes.

(Unconfirmed) EXID to comeback on May 15th!!?

(Written by Hyelinikid. Not an official statement of Banana Culture.)

EXID members will hold their comeback showcase at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15. According to a text message sent from Banana Culture to VIP attendees, the Company states that the showcase will be held at Blue Square Hall, Itaewon Road, Seoul, which was the same place as last showcase. Judging that the time is 8 p.m., the new album (OP note: not specified if single/mini/full album) will likely to be released at 6 p.m. This is only a week after OMG comeback, which fits the 4-year long tradition.

While fans in Korea were commending the timing of comeback, they were displeased with the fact that no official news was released prior to 15 days before the big day, as well as the pity efforts inputted in celebrating Hani’s birthday, when her group brought more than 90% of the Company revenue for the last 5 years. No statement was released from Banana Culture, including the availability of 3rd Generation Leggo Membership.

hyelinikid has also said that exid's schedules are booked till August, which is a hint that the girls (or at least majority of them) re-signed their contracts with Banana
