[Recap] Soompi Weekly Roundup – September Week 1

It’s back! All the important Korean Entertainment news from this week in one place: This is your Weekly Soompi Roundup!

  • Idol Athletic Championships was filmed this week which means that soon we will be able to see the derpy running faces of our most handsome idols. That’s my favorite part anyway.
  • The “Seoul International Drama Awards” aired this week and you can read about who said what during the awards and see exclusive pictures from the red carpet and the ceremony
  • Kang Sung Hoon‘s prison sentence has been reduced to probation. What is happening to our first generation idols?
  • Super Junior‘s Heechul is back and the first thing he said was that he wanted to get go on “We Got Married” with his hoobae Xiumin from EXO. Is this some kind of weird way of subtly coming out of the closet? Or maybe Heechul is that obsessed with Sohee. Either way, he got a lot of people talking about that declaration. What do you think, WGM producers? Sounds like ratings gold to me.

The SNS photo of the week goes to Victoria and f(x)‘s fourth anniversary! Four years with f(x)! Congratulations!

This week’s fashion pictorial goes to Daniel Henney for looking too handsome for print as the title says. Who dares disagree?!

Next…the music video of the week is a little…crooked.

This week had a lot of music video releases but the music video of the week goes to “Crooked” because of G-Dragon‘s I-don’t-give-a-damn mental breakdown. His other song “Coup D’Etat” was a visual treat but “Crooked” was better on the ears. 

Other notable music videos:
