More K-pop stars test positive for COVID-19

The K-pop industry is taking a big hit amid the fourth wave of COVID-19 infections here, with a growing number of singers contracting the coronavirus.

YG Entertainment, home to K-pop boy band TREASURE, said Tuesday that member Doyoung had tested positive.

"Doyoung underwent COVID-19 testing before shooting a commercial on July 12 and tested positive," the company said in a statement. "All the other TREASURE members and support staff tested negative, but will still quarantine themselves."

The news about Doyoung was delivered only a few hours after singer Seo In-young, best known for her 2008 hit "Cinderella," confirmed she had been infected.

Honeymoon Tavern episode 1

A group of celebrity cast runs the tavern as a guest house for newlyweds only and serve the guests with homemade foods and drinks, while creating a memorable honeymoon for newlywed couples who got married during the pandemic with some surprise events. Look forward for the sweet and savory first night in Udo!

Staring Kai, Kim Hee Sun, Tak Jae Hoon, Yoo Teo, and Moon Se Yoon.

Watch episode 1 here.

I usually love shows like this from tvN (Youn's Kitchen/Youn's Stay, Unexpected Business, Kang's Kitchen), but so far this was just okay for me. I fast forwarded a lot. The honeymooners are so cute though!

the plot starting to throw all kinda curveballs at ya as usual, like ofc there's THAT between Yohan and Gaon... also like, their overall dynamic is ~strange~ isn't it?

and these trials are such a farce, I loathe them, I absolutely l o a t h e them

but anyways, there's one thing OP's brain has retained and that's Jinyoung taking his shirt off in ep3 (
bless the mandatory male eye candy scene, now there's a kdrama trope I don't mind)

Bambam also posted about Jinyoung's abs on his IG story (lol)... then Jaebeom posted that he's started watching the drama... perhaps we'll get some commentary? y'know, like last time...
