[Recap] Soompi Weekly Roundup – July Week 2


All the important Korean Entertainment news from this week in one place: This is your Weekly Soompi Roundup! Looks like the short edition is here to stay (unless you can convince this lazy writer otherwise). 


The upcoming drama “Heirs” has a great cast list already, but they’re also adding f(x)’s Krystal, ZE:A’s Hyung Sik, and Kang Ha Neul. So. Many. Pretty. People. Nichkhun and Jia have been cast in another drama, in a different country.

In variety news, Gui Gui and Taecyeon said their sad goodbyes as a virtual couple in the global version of “We Got Married.” The Korean version had the three couples competing in pictorials, and even though you can’t submit your vote for the real thing, you can vote in our Soompi poll. Don’t forget, Soompi has a “We Got Married” recap that is most awesome

The music video of the week goes to 2NE1, simply because they have been gone a long time and it’s good to see them back. Jay Park likes to party in his music video. Ailee shows off her powerful vocals and new moves in “U&I.” Rookie group 2EYES releases the drama version of “Don’t Mess With Me.” A-JAX needs psychiatric help in “Insane.” Stellar makes a comeback and tell you to “Study.” SHU-I breaks out in “Don’t be Down.” Geeks hold several guerrilla concerts in “Fly.” Untouchable wants you to “Call Me.”  

Also in music news, Areum will be leaving T-ara to pursue a solo career. EXO is the first group announced for the KCON lineup. If you think you fangirl (or fanboy) harder than anyone else, prove it by auditioning for Mnet America‘s new reality show. Girl’s Day won their first music show ever (yay!) but it was for a cancelled episode (nay!). Whether you are old like me or just need a good K-pop history lesson, check out our Hwayobi tribute

 That’s all for this recap! If you haven’t already (and why not?), follow Noona on Twitter because she misses you during the week too.
