Golden Disc Awards 2021: Red Carpet & Winners (Day II)


If you could name the second day of the 35th Golden Disc Awards, we could say "sausage festival". Only three girl groups were awarded (Blackpink, (G)I-DLE and Twice). Due to the COVID-10 pandemic, all performances were pre-recorded without an audience.

You can watch the performances on the Golden Disc Awards YouTube channel if you're European. They didn't put anything on their Instagram 😔 (and there's a witch hunt for the people who dare put the videos on YouTube because of yesterday)

Song Hye-kyo to return to TV with writer Kim Eun-sook's new series


Actress Song Hye-kyo will return to the small screen with "The Glory," a new drama series written by the screenwriter of "Descendants of the Sun."

Hwa & Dam Pictures said Friday that Song will take a lead role in the piece that revolves around a woman who experiences school violence and seeks revenge after graduating.

It will be Song's first TV series since romance "Encounter" (2018) and star scriptwriter Kim Eun-sook's new project after the fantasy "The King: Eternal Monarch" (2020), which earned poorer-than-expected reviews at home.

"The Glory" also attracts media attention due to the reunion of the actress and the screenwriter since the megahit military romance series "Descendants of the Sun" in 2016. Hwa & Dam said director Ahn Gil-ho, who was behind "Memories of the Alhambra" (2018) and "Record of Youth" (2020), will be in charge of the pre-produced series.

✨ Gone But Not Forgotten: GUGUDAN ✨

In this series I want to go through artists that are gone, but not forgotten. I will go from debut till disbandment or [indefinite] hiatus, remembering the time we had together and look back on their highs and lows.


Gugudan was a South Korean girl group formed in 2016 by Jellyfish Entertainment. The group debuted on June 28, 2016, with their EP Act. 1 The Little Mermaid. The group was composed of eight members: Mimi, Hana, Haebin, Nayoung, Sejeong, Sally, Soyee and Mina. Originally a nine member group, Hyeyeon left the group in October 2018. After two years with no group activities, Gugudan disbanded on December 31, 2020.

Wo mian mian mian mianhae, WOOOOO mian mian mian mianhae~ ♫
What happened to Gugudan is really sad and unfortunate. People hated their debut, they got bullied for their appearances (visuals, weight) and the public was always ready to start picking them all apart. The difference in popularity didn't help either with their 2 main members extremely overworked (i.o.i, solo work/debut/acting and gugudan activities), with underwhelming results - It must have been so disappointing for them. Jellyfish really did them all dirty. Although I liked them as a group (the vocals!) I hope they are better off now doing other things. I would love to hear your thoughts on Gugudan, Jellyfish and the members. Favorite concept?

I thought we could leave Punch in 2020, but I guess not...
It's the only title track from NCT that I'm not sure how I feel about, especially when Kick it was such a bop.
