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!

dia come back with a sexy concept

Whatever happened to that Bo Peep Bo Peep-like comeback promised for November? Though I wouldn't be surprised if MBK just got too busy with Under19, they seem incapable of handling more than one thing at the same time.

i think they moved it to early this year? but MBK is always shady/stupid/disappointing/anything else negative, so i'm not surprised... they treat their artists horrible anyway, can't handle anything

I can't believe my lightsticks BP prefix were true.
Also that Park Bom is actually going to release music!!!! I cannot believe it, so excited.

This year:

- Fromis_9 breaks out in a huge way and gets their first music show win and first end of year non-rookie award.
- JooE gets her first acting role.
- Namjoon has a dating scandal with me dammit I will predict this every year. 🐢
- SM, continuing to not quite understand how to market to the US, will give Red Velvet a big US TV promo lush for their tour, but will randomly put their new GG's album in Target instead of RV's.
- The post-W1 bands don't even come close to W1's popularity, save a reformed Nuest.
- An IZ*ONE girl gets into a Tzuyu-like scandal over pan-Asian political discourse, over something relatively mundane, like waving a non-Rising-Sun Japanese flag at a Korean fansign or something.
- BTS finally breaks through on US radio and has a long-lasting Top 10 hit as a result (like one that charts in the Top 10 for four or five weeks straight).
- Seventeen announce a long overdue world tour.
- Given today's news, BLACKPINK is forcibly disbanded. In a supreme boss move, CL refuses to release her album when asked to after this, instead taking BP with her to a new agency.
