Staff who secretly put camera in Shin Se Kyung&Bomi’s room on variety show gets a suspended sentence



A suspended sentence was given to the equipment company staff member (referred to as Kim) who has been charged with hiding a camera in the room of Shin Se Kyung and Apink’s Yoon Bomi during the filming of a variety show.

Last September, a hidden camera disguised as a portable charger was discovered in Shin Se Kyung and Yoon Bomi’s room while they were filming overseas for O’live’s show “Pocha Beyond Borders.” The show stated that the camera was illegally installed by an employee from an outsourced company responsible for fixed cameras. Shin Se Kyung discovered the camera herself, and it’s said that it did not record any possibly problematic content and that nothing was leaked. Kim admitted to all charges, and the prosecution demanded a sentence of two years in prison.

A sentencing hearing for Kim was held on July 10 on charges including intrusion and violation of the Act on Special Cases Concerning the Punishment, etc. of Sexual Crimes (filming using a camera). Judge Kwon Young Hye of the Seoul Southern District Court sentenced him to a prison sentence of one year and six months, suspended for three years of probation. This means that if he commits an offense during the three years of probation, he will serve the sentenced time in prison. In addition, Kim was ordered to carry out 40 hours of sexual violence treatment courses and 120 hours of community service.

BTS Is Only Korean Artist On Forbes’s 2019 List Of The World’s Highest-Paid Entertainers



BTS debuted on Forbes’s Celebrity 100!

The list released on July 10 ranks the world’s highest-paid entertainers in 2019 by using their pretax earnings from June 1, 2018 to June 1, 2019, before deducting fees for managers, lawyers, and agents. Forbes states that their figures are based on numbers from Nielsen Music, Pollstar, IMDB, NPD BookScan, and ComScore, in addition to interviews with industry experts and some of the stars themselves. The list is described by Forbes as “the definitive index of who’s making what in the global business of fame.”

BTS takes the No. 43 spot this year, making their debut on the list. Forbes states that BTS earned $57 million pretax income, and much of this income is said to be from their “Love Yourself” world concert tour as well as their extension stadium tour titled “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself.” Forbes also mentions the group’s two films, music sales, and endorsement deals as contributing to their high ranking.

At the top of the list is Taylor Swift, followed by Kylie Jenner, Kanye West, Lionel Messi, and Ed Sheeran in the top five.

Lee Min Ki Says It’s Becoming Harder To Form Deep Relationships, Wants To Love More In 2019

image

-These pics are artsy fartsy and the same expression for every shot doesn't help.

-“I take a lot into consideration after completing a drama and choosing another work, but I think that it needs to be better than the previous work. I’m not saying that it needs to be something amazing or great, but something that’s better for me.”

-“Since it’s getting increasingly difficult to meet people and get closer on a deeper level, I’m learning more things through my characters because the character and I worry together. If I participate in a project where I meet someone who’s a better person than me, I think, ‘I wouldn’t have been able to say something like this if it were me,’ and become a little bit more mature.”

-“In the new year, I hope to love a little bit more no matter who or what it is. You become a bit warmer. I want to feel that. I also want to work without taking any time off if possible.”
