OMONA Predictions 2018: the reveal + share your predictions for 2019!

12 months ago, I asked the members of this community to take a look at their crystal balls and predict what would go down in K-Pop in 2018. After a crazy year full of wi & arae it's time to see which predictions came true, partly true or not true at all!

Don't forget to share your predictions for 2019 in the comments!


  • BTS will become even more successful, have a world tour and actually visit Europe. I think it's safe to say that 2018 was the most successful year in their career and now the whole world knows who BTS is.

  • Onew will join the military. He did!

  • Wanna One will have to deal with a scandal. They had their fair share of scandals this year, from allegedly saying the n-word to Kang Daniel saying that he pooped in the morning on a livestream.

  • Seungri will have a comeback and slay everyone and their mothers. Little Panda came back and dropped a certified bop.

  • BLACKPINK will actually release more than one song at a time and get a lightstick that isn't a fucking water bottle. BP made it out of the dungeon this year but only for one single comeback with a mini album. But hey, at least they gave us the most creative lightstick that K-Pop has ever seen.

  • Hyolyn revitalizes her career. She did and she delivered bop after bop.

  • Cosmic Girls get their first win on a music show. "Save Me, Save You" managed to grab the number 1 spot on The Show!

  • EXO-CBX will have a successful comeback. They all wanted to be our boyfriends.

  • Solji starts to promote with EXID again. She finally came back after 2 long years.

  • One idol dating scandal that shook all fandom. I think that counts for Hyuna X E'Dawn and the mess that followed, right?

  • Fiestar disbands. No surprise, I guess.


  • Exo's next full album will contain Lay's vocals. He did appear on their new album, but only on one song and only on the chinese version of "Tempo".

  • Monsta X will become more popular. I'm not too sure about this? They didn't land a huge hit this year but they're doing well in Korea and also had a world tour and performances in the US and Europe.

  • Loona flops. Uhh, kind of? They finally debuted after 84 years but failed to make it big.


  • f(x) will disband this year. Didn't happen.

  • After School will make their long-awaited comeback. Nope, we're still waiting for that.

  • Infinite's nonexistent comeback will get delayed yet again. Not true! The boys made their comeback only a few days into the new year with "Tell Me".

  • BTS will have a dating scandal. I know y'all are waiting for this, but it didn't happen this year.

  • Astro will become more successful and get their first win on music shows. While Cha Eunwoo continues to be one of Korea's It boys, his band is still trying to hit it big.

  • Lay leaves EXO. I know we predict this every year, but as of today he is still officially a member of EXO... at least on paper.

  • Lee Hi will release a new album. Sis is still in the dungeon.

  • Hyuna & Jo Kwon will form the new Troublemaker subunit. Na, didn't happen. Instead, Hyuna left Cube and Jo Kwon for the Army.

  • Sooyoung will get married. She is still dating her actor BF but so far, no announcement of her getting married.

Happy 2019, OMONA!

Hyuna and Hyojong will break up but Hyuna will have an awesome solo comeback!
nana_the_dwarf 30th-Dec-2018 11:16 pm (UTC)
I think Sooyoung's mention she's not in any hurry to get married, and has made her solo career her priority. I'm glad, and part of me hopes they end up breaking up because he has issues.
benihime99 30th-Dec-2018 11:23 pm (UTC)
Lee hi and the 15& girls will form a gang and kill their respective douchebag ceo
People will approve, no jail time

Ok so my predictions were like, not awful? A lot of them were wishful thinking though. [i was right/almost right on a few things!]
- I called After School's Kaeun on PD48, though I predicted her to do less well than she did. Still waiting on that solo debut but looks like she's preparing for a new gg instead!
- VIXX Solo Debut! N released 'Cactus', Leo released 'Touch and Sketch'
- I was on the WJSN first win train too, and called fiestar disbanding
- No official news on girlsgirls but miso has continued her solo career
- Euna and Suji didn't debut as a duo but Euna and Minju did so, halfway there?

I haven't been as close to kpop this year because I have ~been busy with my life~ but here's some ideas for what might happen this year
- I agree that Hyuna and E'Dawn will split
- The BTS dating scandal is upon us, I'm sure
- Disbanding GGs: AOA, Pristin, After School, Ladies' Code (Sojung/Ashley solo careers, Zuny goes into acting), Rania, Wassup, Berry Good, Laboum. It'll be sad to watch some of my favourite nugus disband but also nice to see them move on to bigger and better things!
- Either Nature or GWSN will have a breakout hit, but not both
- Chungha will release a collaboration with dancer/exPD101 contestant Hwang Sooyeon
- (g)-idle take a music show win over blackpink. the kpop fandom absolutely fucking implodes.
- Weki Meki don't follow the trend of post-IOI groups and make a subunit. Consistently have whole-group promotions.
- Weki Meki nab a first win.
- CLC release a subunit. We might get one or two full group comebacks after that, but it's mostly just this subunit for the next couple years until they disband.
- Grace x Alex Reid collaboration. It's bad but a lot of us stan completely unironically.

- (g)-idle take a music show win over blackpink. the kpop fandom absolutely fucking implodes.

that would mean that they both promote at the same time, which... seems unlikely.
p_jae 30th-Dec-2018 11:45 pm (UTC)
- CL's album will still get stalled again and she'll do/say something drastic and we'll all be living for it.
-Taeyeon will hold solo concerts outside of asia. (Praying for london for my own sake, but realistically I see her only doing a few in north america)
- GG will hint again at an ot8 comeback but ultimately it wont happen.
-A member of Red Velvet will make a proper solo debut.

-We'll find out why Jay Park was kicked out of 2PM.
(Still waiting on this one, every damn year.)
goshipgurl 31st-Dec-2018 12:16 am (UTC)
We'll find out why Jay Park was kicked out of 2PM

it'll be a decade next year. maybe his NDA is up and he can now drop his tell-all

For last years prediction I got right that Minhwan and Yulhee would get married, Seventeen would successfully debut in Japan and Solji would rejoin EXID :D Oh My Girl didn't get the predicted big break, but i think they are still rising! I was wrong on Haru getting a sibling and Sooyoung getting married.

For next year, I'm going to predict
- Someone famous will get outed being a cult member
- We Got Married will come back
- Exid all will re-sign their contracts
- Pristin will get two comebacks pls pls pls
- There will be news on Signal's sequel
- A member of Seventeen will star in a drama or movie
- WJSN's China Line will not stay with Starship
- YGE will not debut a girlgroup in 2019, they will also lose the lawsuit they are in with Happy Face Ent.
- Boyfriend, Hello Venus and Cross Gene disband.
- At least one member of AOA will not renew their contract with FNC
yejun 31st-Dec-2018 12:12 am (UTC)
Hello Venus disbands

normanikordei 31st-Dec-2018 12:08 am (UTC)
we’ll see our first proper exo solo in 2019. bonus points for baekhyun or kai.
nana_the_dwarf 31st-Dec-2018 12:23 am (UTC)
Since some members will start enlisting next year, solos are very likely to happen. Or more sub-units.
yejun 31st-Dec-2018 12:14 am (UTC)
All 4 members of f(x) gather in one place at the same time and leave photographic evidence of this monumental event!
jackieee94 31st-Dec-2018 12:59 am (UTC)
My prev pretictions weren’t too bad 🧐

-Bts dating scandal (leggo)
-Park Bom perfect all kill on the music charts
-Blackpink x Katy Perry
-CL leaves YG
-Bighit new boy groups flops in Korea but does well overseas
-Hello Baby is revived

Jooheon had a mixtape this year but it would be cool to have another album of his singing :)
juhli 31st-Dec-2018 08:51 am (UTC)
Lee Hyori might have a break up.

since jinyoung left b1a4 and his new company doesnt seem too big ... i would like to see him getting another moment to shine on tv like he did on produce 101, maybe his netflix drama will be a hit

Hyolyn first music show solo win
Hyuna & E'Dawn stay together
Loona first music show win
News of disbandment from f(x) & After School
belintuchiha 31st-Dec-2018 02:38 am (UTC)
It's not a prediction but a wish.
Hope BEG's comeback gets more attention.
People always talk about them here and there but whenever they come back, they ignore them again and then cry about people ignoring them lol
