I miss T-ara so much~ Boram is actually a very good singer, it's a shame her agency never gave her the full support she deserved.
What do you think about idols receiving (close to) no lines?

Netflix teams up with "Train to Busan" director for original series


Streaming giant Netflix is teaming up with Yeon Sang-ho, the director of the hit horror film "Train to Busan," for a new original series.

The company announced the project Thursday, which will be titled "The Hell."

The thriller series, based on the webcomic of the same name, will revolve around a group of people who encounter supernatural creatures from hell.

Director Yeon collaborated with popular cartoonist Choi Gyu-seok to create the comic, which is still published weekly on Naver. The two creators will co-write the series.

Yeon made his directorial debut in 1997 with a short animation film. He got his first break as a director with the zombie thriller film "Train to Busan" in 2016.

The director recently finished the tvN series "The Cursed," for which he wrote the scripts. He is now working on the action film "Peninsula," starring Kang Dong-won and Lee Jung-hyun.

Ha:tfelt revisits darkest 3 years after Wonder Girls

Ye-eun, a former member of K-pop girl band Wonder Girls, is not a stranger to fame: her group won countless awards and gained popularity across generations of fans. Thanks to its addictive megahit songs like "Tell Me" and "Nobody," Wonder Girls were undeniably the top female K-pop group of their times in Korea, starting in 2007, which helped them make their U.S. debut and sustain a performance schedule there for years as well.

Even though the group disbanded after a decade of activity in 2017, which included several years of intermittent hiatus, they are remembered as a girl group that made history on the K-pop scene.

Ye-eun was the only member who stayed in Wonder Girls from the beginning to the end, which could be interpreted as her faithfully carrying out her role as a somewhat standardized K-pop female singer. Because girl groups at that time normally sang songs about girls' broken hearts after breakups with their boyfriends, many were surprised when she came back to the stage in 2014 as a soloist with a new stage name "Ha:tfelt" and sang songs with lyrics which were her personal story.
