President Trump and Ivanka Trump got a surprise welcome party at South Korea’s Blue House: members of superstar K-pop boy band EXO.

An excited Ivanka gushed about the group’s “phenomenal” performance at the closing ceremonies of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, which she attended, and cooed over copies of their latest CD, “Love Shot,” presented to her and her father.

“Oh, and it’s signed!” she exclaimed at the Saturday rendezvous.

“Really great job, fellas,” the president said.

Stalker finds Kim Dong-wan's home

A stalker has left a provocative message on a letter in actor-singer Kim Dong-wan's mailbox, angering the star.

The member of six-member boy band Shinhwa on Saturday shared photos of the message on Instagram. Seemingly written with a black ballpoint pen, it read: "I worked my ass off looking for your house. I know you! I found you!"

Tiny granny Rawoon is up early wanting a fancy trail mix and making kimchi for a play date in the park later. We meet her "honey" and it's so adorable. She's not the only one on a date this week, William also meets up with a friend. But in this case, her father's not too happy with his daughter being friends with a boy. Sam also tries to teach the boys some patience. We join Uncle Kwanghee taking Naeun and Gunhoo around Switzerland. I say it every time, but he is really good with the kids. And too funny..."my cousin speaks German very well" lol. They go to a market and take shelter from the rain in a school.

Omona's Pick: 2019 2nd Quarter Kpop Favorites

Can you believe we're almost halfway through the year already? It's time to look back at our favorite Kpop releases during the second quarter of 2019 (April-June). Feel free to talk about your favorites including but not limited to:
- title songs or b-sides
- MV/visual concept
- live performances
- choreography
- etc.
You can rank them or just list them randomly. Maybe there are also a few first quarter releases that you still enjoy or those you discovered belatedly - there are a few of those for me.

Here are my personal favorites:

Chungha - Snapping
Gotta Go was a Q1 favorite of mine and she makes my list again this time. Snap at me, queen!
