[Recap] Weekly Soompi Roundup – May Week 4
All the important Korean Entertainment news from this week in one place: This is your Weekly Soompi Roundup!
- Are IU and Eunhyuk getting married? No, they’re not, and no one fell for this attention seeking rumor. It’s not good to start rumors; you might get sued.
- Son Ho Young is recovering, but still on suicide watch. His family, friends, and fans are all praying for him. Fighting!
- It’s also not good to talk bad about your family because they might say something back. That’s what Jang Yoon Jung is learning right now, the hard way.
- Original idol group ClickB’s Kim Sang Hyuk finished his military duties and the first thing he did was get charged for sexual harassment. This is another addition to the long list of bad decisions made by drunken Korean celebrities.
- Nichkun is probably glad that’s behind him, especially now that he’s making a lot of money.
- How hard is it to impersonate PSY? Not that hard, according to this French Gentleman.
- Soon-to-be celebrity mothers Byul and Sunye went shopping together which is super cute because it’s Star and Sun. Get it? Star…Sun…
- Chris Brown humiliates T-ara N-4, and people are upset but no one is surprised. This is another addition to the long list of bad decisions made by Core Contents Media.
Next…Another week full of teasers and awesome music videos
The big music videos from this week are from the two biggest K-Pop companies, and each video stays true to their agency’s style. SM released EXO’s “Oolf,” I mean, “Wolf,” with its fancy effects, futuristic backgrounds (let’s just admit it now, it’s just a bigger box), dramatic close-ups of their handsome idols, and that annoying ad for Genie.
YG released CL’s solo debut “The Baddest Female” and made sure it had the usual expensive cars, extravagant outfits, and customized bling.
Along with these music videos we had teasers from MBLAQ, After School, and Rainbow. SM also tried to troll everyone by announcing that it was going to promote a new solo artist and had fans shouting out trainee names. Turns out, Henry from Super Junior-M is going solo (with help from Taemin and Kyuhyun). SM, you troll.
Next…What are the most popular variety shows at Soompi?
“Infinity Challenge” and “Running Man” are Korea’s favorite variety shows, but it looks like “Running Man” is more popular here at Soompi because every Monday Couple article gets a billion* views. “We Got Married” is also popular, and you don’t even have to watch it because Soompi has its own awesome** recap. Maybe “Barefoot Friends” could learn some things from them because they are still struggling.
Ye Eun has been cast in the new basketball drama but they could have picked a more flattering photo. Drama fans cheered when it was announced that Choi Jin Hyuk (who became popular playing Lee Seung Gi’s beastly spirit father on “Gu’s Family Book”) has joined the already awesome cast of “Heirs.” Two representatives of handsome, Won Bin and Song Joong Ki, are also looking into roles in different movies.

Next…Idols look good in pictorials and in selcas.
INFINITE doesn’t understand why idols are discouraged from dating. Let them be free! Why be adorably handsome if you can’t date properly? T-ara N4’s Hyomin wasn’t afraid to show some skin for her pictorial in “In Style.” Yoon Eun Hye and Han Ji Min both go for the short hair look and pull it off in their separate photo shoots.
In the social networking world, Sulli looks lovely next to the water even though she has aquaphobia. Sandara supports CL’s solo debut with pictures from the gym. We’re not quite sure who Kim Ji Soo is but wow, he did lose a lot of weight!
That’s all for this recap. Come back every weekend for more near-perfect recaps*** right here at Soompi!
