[OMONA DISCUSSION] Predictions for 2017: the reveal + share your predictions for 2018!

Last December, I asked you guys in one of our OMONA discussion posts to take a look at your crystal balls and predict what would go down in K-Pop 2017. One year and many ups & downs later we're here to look back at the past 12 months. Time sure flies by so fast! Let's see which predictions came true, partly true, or not true at all. (Spoiler: We should become psychics!)
Also, share your predictions for 2018 in the comments below!


  • BTS will put out a repackage of Wings, and a new EP later in the year. 2017 gave us the repackage called YOU NEVER WALK ALONE and their american debut album a new album called LOVE YOURSELF 承 HER.

  • Big Soshi release around their 10th anni in August. The queens of K-Pop blessed us with their (most likely) last comeback ever this year with Holiday to Remember which was terribly mismanaged by SM and ended with 3 of them leaving FUCK YOU SM YOU HAD ONE JOB NO XOXO A BITTER SOSHI STAN.

  • Girl's Day will finally have that comeback they've been pushing back for like a year. The girls delivered with their smash hit I'll Be Yours.

  • T-ara will have a successful comeback. Check! The girls came back with What's My Name and even got their first music show win after 5 long years!

  • Red Velvet will continue to slay while being mistreated and unpromoted. I don't know about the unpromoted and mistreated part, but 2017 was definitely their year with not one, not two but three songs that all proved to be hits!

  • OMG Jine will officially leave the group.

  • Rainbow Jisook will have a solo debut. Sis debuted with the help of BTOB's Ilhoon and released her solo song Baesisi.

  • BTS grow even bigger and get some more western recognition. Too lazy to link all the posts about their american advancement, just check their tag for references.

  • Seohyun will debut as a solo singer. SM did not say no and let her release one flawless mini album.

  • Plediz Girls will finally debut. Who iz Plediz Girls, I only know Pristin.

  • IU will have a comeback. Not only one but two!

  • Taemin will have a solo comeback. He did and got us all move-ing.


  • Even with I.O.I. disbanded, we will hear plenty from Somi in 2017. She was on Sister's Slam Dunk and Idol Drama Operation Team, did some hosting gigs and got featured on Eric Nam's single You, Who? and Jun.K's single Nov to Feb, but we're still waiting for her official debut date.

  • Super Junior, minus Kyuhyun and Ryeowook, will release a new song at the end of the year. The lads did come back with their new song Black Suit just a few weeks ago. Not only were Kyuhyun and Ryeowook missing, but both Siwon and Kangin were sitting out as well after their respective scandals.

  • Nine Muses will either add on more members (again) or Sungah will peace out and it'll just be the subunit. The group didn't add more members but Sungah decided to focus on her DJing, thus not making it to the groups two comebacks this year.

  • CL will continue to flop in the US. The good sis was featured on Lil Yachty's song Surrender and recorded a song titled No Better Feelin' for the My Little Pony soundtrack. Is this still flopping? If you ask me: Yes. But I can't put her on the TRUE list because I don't wanna make slutdrop cry.


  • EXO will shrink to 8 members, but Lay will stay. No exodus this year. Boo!

  • Spica will finally have an album. Didn't happen, instead the girls disbandment.

  • Produce 101 2.0 will be a flop. Such flop, much sad.

  • F(x) will have a comeback. Hahahahahahahahahaha. No.

  • D.O will leave EXO or pull a Kibum. I'm sure he would love to jump ship but as of today, he's still a member of EXO.

  • Onew will have a solo debut. No. Even if: Keep it.

  • Krystal will have a solo debut. Hahahahahahahahahaha. No. [2]

  • OMG hits big. Still flops.

  • Wonder Girls renew their contracts with JYPE. Yeah, that didn't happen.

  • Let's end this post with wise words of the great Tao:

I say f(x) will disband this year (not that I want them to)

All I can pretty much think of. I wonder if someone from BTS will get a scandal of some sort (I'm talking something minor like dating). The fans' reactions would probably be something entertaining.

Also, lol at that fanfiction tag.

I'm endlessly amused by stupid fan reactions to dating scandals so those are always on my wishlist lmao. And considering BTS fandom....yeah that would be good stuff.

my prediction for 2018 is that after school will have a comeback
adenar 6th-Dec-2017 11:48 pm (UTC)
reading this while writing an after school post made me smile :)
evilcoc0nut 6th-Dec-2017 09:57 pm (UTC)
Hyunseung will enlist before Cube ever gives him a fucking comeback. :((((

I say that

- BTS becomes EVEN bigger, and eventually comes out with a fully english song (I sure hope that that DOESNT happen, but with their success in English speaking countries, I have a ~*~feeling~*~)

- Ong Seongwoo will take over the WORLD, acting, music, comedy, beauty, etc..

- Namjoon will WIN next years thirst games. #thatsrightmytype

I AM COSIGNING YOUR LAST PREDICTION. Come on Turtle Squad, let's get in formation! (imagine a bunch of emoji turtles shaped like Beyonce or something I'm not an artist)
ultimaaa 6th-Dec-2017 10:02 pm (UTC)
Infinite's nonexistent comeback will get delayed yet again. In an attempt to appease fans, Sunggyu's solo will be released instead (with them acting like that was never the plan in the first place) and he will be given an unprecedented level of promotion from Woollim before he is shipped off to the military, and with him the dreams of ever getting music from Infinite again.

Yea Nana seems to be focusing on her actress image and cf/magazine shoots, I don't think she'll risk it for a comeback with AS/OC
giriboy 6th-Dec-2017 10:09 pm (UTC)
  • shownu will enlist in 2018 jk, i'm not willing this thought into existence
  • nct will have their “growl,” their biggest domestic hit
  • hyuna x jo kwon will be cube's newest co-ed unit

hope the html works, this time. ugh

blck_ink 6th-Dec-2017 10:18 pm (UTC)
i suck at these but my predictons are:

- ( i don't wish this upon them) wanna one will have to deal with a scandal
- (depending on fans' reaction on his return) onew will join the military
- exo's next full album will contain lay's vocals ( not too sure about his partipation in promo)
- cl will drop a korean single after/during mixnine
- woo do hwan will be korea's new it boy
- kangin won't ever return to super junior

genuine question: when people say do would rather leave exo, is it because he doesn't have his happy face on 24/7?

In 2018, BTS will complete their takeover of Earth and move on to wooing extraterrestrials, becoming the first kpop group to win the prestigious Newcomer Award at the annual music awards show put on by the whale-like inhabitants of the area surrounding the planet Jupiter.* EXO-Ls will be very upset and claim that EXO's homage to space whales was better than BTS's because their space whale was an actual space whale, whereas BTS's was simply a metaphor for a lonely human being.

*Way more prestigious than any annual earth award because one year on Jupiter is the equivalent of twelve Earth years.

I can't stand you for this lmao. I love it.
rojounotori 6th-Dec-2017 10:25 pm (UTC)
-Monsta X will continue to grow! Maybe get more wins on music shows? I'd also love for the members to be given more chances to write or co-write their music (not just the lyrics).

-Really hoping we'll get that Luna comeback (and hopefully be as good as Free Somebody).

asddfghjkl my predictions are so boring lmao (I'm also hoping for more HA:TFELT and Davichi but those aren't predictions, just me wishing).
jessi_cola 6th-Dec-2017 10:35 pm (UTC)
