Tiffany Young is on her way to world diva



There is a stereotype that K-pop idol group members cannot sing properly. However, Tiffany Young, a member of Girl's Generation, breaks that perception. Now it is more apt to call her a "pop singer," ― a singer not only limited to K-pop.

Tiffany Young held her solo concert "OPEN HEARTS EVE" at Yes 24 Live Hall in Gwangjin-gu, Seoul, Saturday. This was her first solo concert in Seoul in three years, since she moved back to Los Angeles in 2018, starting a new path in the United States with a new agency Transparent.

T-ara’s Hyomin Shares Letter After Longtime Fan Passes Away



T-ara’s Hyomin wrote a heartfelt letter to a longtime fan who passed away.

On August 5, Hyomin shared a photo of a handwritten letter and the screenshot of a post she was tagged in on Instagram along with a photo of herself putting a hat on a male fan.

The post she was tagged in read, “I’m contacting you because I really want your help. Yesterday morning, my friend passed away. I’m contacting you because he was someone who was a T-ara fan from when you debuted until now. Every time your song came out, he asked friends to listen to it, promoted it, attended all fan signing events, fan meetings, and birthday parties, and liked you. T-ara songs are playing right now at the incense altar. Last year at your birthday party, Jimin got your hat so he bragged about it and was really happy. I would be really happy if you could come see Jimin, but since it’s a big request, I hope you’ll reply while cherishing his memory.”
