[Recap] Soompi Weekly Roundup – May Week 3


Welcome to the Soompi Weekly Roundup! Every weekend we will highlight all the important news that happened this week, so you can catch up on anything you may have missed.

While normally K-Pop is mostly glitz and glamor, this week a lot of dark and unfortunate events took the spotlight. On the same day, the former head of Block’s B‘s former agency and Son Ho Young‘s girlfriend committed suicide. After attending the funeral, Son Ho Young tried to commit suicide in the same manner. Fortunately, he was unsuccessful and is currently in a hospital recovering. Poor guy, hopefully he will be able to get the emotional help he needs and make a strong recovery. We’re rooting for you!

Trot singer and entertainer Jang Yoon Jung had happily announced her upcoming wedding with TV announcer Do Kyung Wan last month but it looks like family matters will damper the festivities. In an interview, Jang Yoon Jung shared how her mother spent all her savings and then some, leaving her completely broke. Well, her mother and her brother had something to say back to her. Yikes, family drama like this is probably best kept within the family.

In happier news, congratulations to actor Bae Soo Bin on his engagement!
