[Recap] Soompi Weekly Roundup November Week 2
All the important Korean Entertainment news from this week in one place: This is your Weekly Soompi Roundup!
This week in celebrity news…
- Did Minzy get plastic surgery? Her agency says no, but it looks like everyone else is saying yes.
- SM Entertainment claims that Taeyeon and YoonA are not the drunk girls in a picture taken in Hong Kong. Then Jessica is injured at the airport. This would have been a bigger deal if there wasn’t another big story that had just erupted that day.
- Eunhyuk‘s Twitter got hacked multiple times. Meanwhile, I had fun with some of my Twitter friends thinking of possible passwords that he might have used. My favorites: “AnchoviesRulez7,” “TeukCanIBeLeader4Awhile,” “DonghaeIzMine,” “GummySmile1,” and “SujusRealVisual.”
- Turns out his Twitter (and Sungmin’s) was hacked by an bitter ex-boyfriend of a “Super Star K” contestant. This would have been a bigger deal if there wasn’t another big story that had just erupted that day.
- Comedian Yoon Jung Soo has filed for bankruptcy.
- Lee Su Geun, Tak Jae Hoon, Tony Ahn, Gong Sung Su, Boom, Andy, and Yang Sae Hyung were indicted for illegal online gambling. This would have been a bigger deal if there wasn’t another big story that had just erupted that day.
- Former T-Ara member Ahreum is kind of weird with her Instagram, and netizens cannot stand that. Let the girl be; if she wants to be weird, let her be weird.
- Secret’s Hyosung’s personal information has been stolen and if they find the person who did it, he/she could face prison sentences. This would have been a bigger deal if there wasn’t another big story that had just erupted that day.
- JYJ and their agency will not be lenient with the netizens who spread malicious rumors. Kang Min Young of Davichi will be taking the netizens who photoshopped her photos to court. Glad to hear celebrities taking a tougher stance on these trouble makers (the not sexy ones).
- ZE:A was accused of obtaining online university credits illegally but they denied that it was true.
- Sechs Kies‘ Gong Ji Yong is getting married! S#arp member Seo Ji Young is having a baby! It’s so weird to see these first generation idols moving on with their lives and growing up!
- Lee Jong Suk might be heading off to the army soon. Why, WHY does the army take all the good ones?
- You already know this but Ailee‘s nude photos were distributed online, and just everything hit the fan and blew up all over the place.
Next…I always wanted to do that…
The music video of the week goes to Norazo‘s “Wild Horse.” All their songs may sound the same but all their songs are super catchy. Plus, they wear cool horse costumes. Can I get one too? I’ve always wanted to gallop on the beach.
Other notable music videos:
- Taeyang – “Ringa Linga”
- G-Dragon – “Who You?”
- Davichi – “The Letter” and Part 2
- Brown Eyed Girls‘ M&N – “Tonight”
- Huh Gak – “Fragrance”
- Lee Jung and Ha Dong Kyun – “Where Is the Love”
- Untouchable – “Vain”
- NC.A – “Oh My God”
- Lee Juck – “Lie Lie Lie”
- Mato – “December 1” Feat. Lee Jae Hun
- Phantom – “New Era”
In other music news….
- SHINee wins “Best Artist of the Year” award at “Melon Music Awards.” Check out the other list of winners and the red carpet photos.
- Infinity Challenge has removed “I Got C” from music stores because of the plagiarism controversy. It’s a shame, because the song is so catchy.
- Reunited Click-B will perform at “DSP Festival.” Doesn’t look like we’ll get a full Sechs Kies and Fin.K.L though.
- Rain will be making a music comeback with a new album next year.
- The name Nami may not ring a bell with new K-Pop fans but she is making a comeback after 17 years! I’m pretty sure some of you are younger than that!
The SNS picture of the week goes to Gong Yoo and his ability to be polite but look so nonchalant at the same time.
Next…I didn’t know the Giraffe could do that….
(Click play to watch them kiss~)
Woah, the Lee Kwang Soo can kiss! For a long time! While multitasking!
In other drama and film news…
- The future doesn’t look good for Victoria‘s Chinese drama. She might already be looking into other projects.
- First stills of “Prime Minister and I” have been released. Not quite sure how I feel about this couple yet.
- Kim Soo Hyun is too handsome for me to comprehend in first stills from “My Lover from the Stars.”
- “Miss Korea” had their first script reading.
- Kangin has also been cast in a movie about a funeral for a cat. No, really.
- We all thought the accusations against “Queen of Ambition” writer Lee Hee Myung were weird, and now we find out it may have come from pettiness?
- “Basketball” has been cut down to 18 episodes but I wasn’t even aware that it had already begun airing.
(Click the play button to watch these little kids run around)
A lot of fans were excited to see EXO on “Running Man.” Aw, they’re like little kids playing hide and seek.
- SNL Korea parodied Trouble Makers‘ (Um, I’ve been spelling it as one word. Oops.) “Now” and I like this one better. I’m also a closeted Hwatu addict, so maybe that’s why.
- Joo Won has not dated since his debut and I CAN HELP HIM FIX THAT PROBLEM.
- Cha Tae Hyun and Kim Jong Min will be the only remaining members of “1N2D.” Kim Joo Hyuk and Jung Joon Young will be joining, among others.
- Jeon Hyun Moo has been confirmed as the new MC for “Kpop Star 3.”
