Goo Hara’s acquaintance “K” said, “I noticed that the safe had gone missing back in April. I checked the CCTV footage together with her brother Goo Ho In and saw that there was a clip in which the lens had been covered with leaves. I think it was an attempt to obscure their identity.” “K” also noted that they had changed the password to the house after Goo Hara’s passing. “Goo Ho In and I are the only ones who know the password,” they said. “The person appeared to press the keys for the old password.”

K-pop stars after glory days

"Every flow has its ebb" and so does every star.

Members of K-pop groups enjoy their glory days when they are young; but after a group disbands, the stars, still in their 20s or 30s, are left to face the "real world" out of the spotlight.

This is the situation that almost all K-pop stars have to deal with after "careers" lasting just a few years. According to the Fair Trade Commission, seven years is the longest single contract period between a management company and a singer. After that, the two have to renew it to maintain a business relationship, but more often than not, they choose not to.

The reasons vary. The groups may not be profitable enough or one of the members may want to pursue their personal dreams. Even some of the most popular girl groups of their times, such as Sistar, Girls' Day and 2NE1, were not exceptions to the "seven-year curse."

♪ Omona's Pick - "Let's get Funky" playlist ♪

For the third installment on this exclusive let's move to the funky side of town.
Since the playlist is quite long and LJ sucks at handling too many media I'll just post my top 5 + the full playlist.
As you'll notice "funk" and "retro" (as well as an hint of disco) might overlap, so I decided to make a maxi playlist for those of you gluttons who want to listen to it all (do enjoy 4+ hours of kpop flawlessness).

Side note: while the girls reign supreme over the retro style, the boys came in full force for this one. I did manage to get some queens in, but it's mostly a boys club...
