OMONA EXCLUSIVE! Greatest Lyrics in K-Pop (Pt.1)

Sometimes, you gotta be bold we listen to dark, emotional, sad, or even fun songs and we're getting into it, until these lines come out.

Please note! I didn't include solos just yet. Also because LJ hates too much media, I had to take out a few others so I'll probably make a part 2 for K-Pop groups. Anyway, this is all in good fun and enjoy!

Kim Hyung Jun’s Accuser Receives Prison Sentence For False Accusation And Defamation

Check out omona's past posts



In March 2019, a woman accused Kim Hyung Jun of sexually assaulting her in May 2010. In response, Kim Hyung Jun filed a lawsuit against the accuser for false accusation and defamation. The singer also strongly denied the allegations during questioning by the police, saying that the relationship between the two was consensual. In June 2019, the police forwarded the case with a recommendation of non-indictment for Kim Hyung Jun due to a lack of evidence. The accuser went to trial on charges of false accusation and defamation.

On September 29, Kim Hyung Jun’s agency confirmed that the woman who had accused Kim Hyung Jun has been sentenced to eight months in prison. That was announced on September 25 during a sentencing trial at the Goyang branch of the Uijeongbu District Court.

It’s reported that the woman has continued to defame Kim Hyung Jun online. With Kim Hyung Jun’s image harmed and rumors and defamation continuing since the original accusation, he’s reportedly experienced considerable financial and psychological damage.

Gov't to allow abortion in early stage of pregnancy

Korea will allow abortion within the first 14 weeks of pregnancy, while maintaining its current anti-abortion laws for those seeking abortions after this period, the Ministry of Justice announced Tuesday.

The ministry will officially pre-announce revision bills to the related Criminal Law and Mother and Child Health Law, Wednesday.

The move comes after a landmark ruling by the Constitutional Court in April 2019, which concluded that banning abortion in the early stages of pregnancy was a violation of the right to self-determination.
