[Recap] Soompi Weekly Roundup – November Week 1

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

This week in celebrity news…

  • Don’t follow his example kids, rapper Joo Suk was booked for a DUI. Korea has a great public transportation system, and cabs everywhere. That did not need to happen.


The fashion pictorial of the week goes to Jung Woo for definitely not looking like “Trash.” Plus, I’m one of the few people who knew of him before he became famous and I am so proud of him!

Next…sometimes we need some healing. 

The music video of the week goes to Yoo Seung Eun for her song that was definitely “Healing” to me. Plus the dancers of “Dancing 9” make the music video visually awesome too.

Other notable music videos:

In other music news…

  • Girls’ Generation won “Video of the Year” at the first YouTube Music Awards. They made a lot of One Direction, Lady Gaga, and other artists’ fans really confused, but hopefully they won’t undermine the power of K-Pop again.
  • SM will be holding its first music festival, which is a string of performances and some exhibitions. Who wants to go?
  • Do you know what albums and singles are coming out this week? We do.

This week’s SNS photo goes to Tiffany and some other famous American actress who has had several movie roles but only “High School Musical” comes to my mind right now. “We’re all in this together…”

Next…Korean dramas are all the same. 

I don’t want to say that Korean dramas are repetitive, but we all know it. Here are some examples. Can you think of others?

In other drama news…

  • UEE and Jung Il Woo’s “Golden Rainbow” has started off with low ratings. It is very competitive right now, but hopefully it will pick up.
  • Lee Bum Soo, Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA, and Yoon Shi Yoon had their first script reading for “Prime Minister and I.”
  • f(x)’s Sulli has been invited to play a lead role in the upcoming movieFashion King.” She’s already busy with “Pirates” so does this mean it’ll be awhile until we see f(X) back on stage?

I always knew Haru was cute, but she is just capturing people’s hearts on “Superman.” Even if she is mistaken for a boy, she is one cutie patootie.

In other variety news…

  • Barefoot Friends” has been cancelled, and it might have been a mercy kill. I loved that show, but I’m a little relieved.
  • Cheesy Cheetos? Sounds dangerously delicious. Try out ZE:A‘s Kwanghee’s original snack.
