First Official OT9 Performance of Twice’s “Feel Special”!!

Mina participated in her very first official performance of Feel Special! The first Feel Special performance to be performed as OT9 on stage!! The performance took place at Marine Messe Fukuoka in Japan.

Included under the cut a video from the company, it’s quite zoomed out I’m assuming to give the experience the audience’s perspective?

Also adding in a full performance from a fan under the cut! Closer than Twice’s video and zoomed in the closest to the screen.

IN2IT debuted in 2017 after being formed through the survival show “Boys24.”

This comes after member Sunghyun left the group in September (omona post). In his words "I am beginning to think that going on Boys24 and coming out of that harsh survival program to debut as IN2IT was a poisoned chalice for us."

I'm just hoping that none of the members had to pay such a high termination fee as Sunghyun did.

"Parasite" dish back in spotlight as film enjoys post-Oscars boom

After director Bong Joon-ho's "Parasite" made history at the Oscars, everything related to the critically acclaimed 2019 movie is back in the spotlight.

Some of the movie quotes, which had gone viral on the internet after the huge success of the film both at home and abroad, were revisited after the homegrown movie topped the 92nd Oscars on Monday (Seoul time), winning four awards ― best picture, best director, best screenplay and best international feature film.

The latest Parasite-inspired hit among Koreans is a mix of instant noodles, called jjappaguri which was translated as ram-don in the English subtitles of the movie. It is a mixture of two different types of instant noodles ― Chinese-inspired Chapagetti and the spicy local version of Japanese-style udon Neoguri. In Parasite, beef was added to it.

Thank you for answering my prayers BH, this is definitely an upgrade for me. Despite the obvious PS, I like the vibe going on here (very BST-esque) and the black-versus-color contrast is so pleasing to see. Also, who says BTS has no visual?? I'm definitely excited for tomorrow's batch now. Hope I'll be back early enough from work to post them ;)
