[Recap] Soompi Weekly Roundup November Week 3

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

After the very busy and dramatic last week, it seems that things have somewhat quieted down in the K-Pop world.

  • A crazy “fan” ran on stage and tried to harass Crayon Pop’s ChoA. I don’t know, I feel like if you do something that frightens or endangers the singer, you lose your title of “fan.”
  • Rain is having legal troubles with his building tenants, again.
  • Younha was chosen as the honorary ambassador for the “2013 AIDS Prevention Campaign.” I’m sure she’ll do a great job with her beautiful music.
  • Comedian Jeon Young Joong passed away at the young age of 27. Rest in Peace.
  • Eunhyuk and Sungmin’s SNS hacker was caught, which isn’t a big surprise since he outed himself saying that he was a “Super Star K” contestant’s ex-boyfriend. 

The fashion pictorial of the week goes to the cast of “Reply 1994” because it’s nice to see them wearing something not out of the nineties.

Next…the music video of the week did not have naked idols or idols being tortured. 

The music video of the week goes to Lim Kim’s “Goodbye 20” because I wanted to see something sweet and innocent. There are no naked women or idols being tortured and ripped apart here.

In other music news…

  • 2NE1 announced their world tour. There might be more countries added, too.
  • Our favorite BFFs will be coming back with a new album! Can you say, “Oppa Oppa?”
  • By the time this article is out, “2013 MAMAwould have happened. Expect a winners recap and red carpet gallery!

The SNS photo of the week goes to Amber’s adorable parody of “Hush” because everything this girl does is so cute.

You should also watch Jamie Foxx singing “Heaven’s Door” (in Korean!) with Eric Nam because who would have expected that?

Next…will she be the next “Coffee Prince?”


Park Han Byul makes a pretty tomboy. Looking at this photo makes me want to chop off all my hair too.

In other drama and film news…

  • Song Hye Gyo and Lee Jun Ki won awards at the “2013 Apan Star Awards” and no, it is not missing a “J” as I originally thought.
  • The cast for “I Need Romance Season 3has been finalized with Sung Joon, Kim So Yeon, Nam Goong Min, and Wang Ji Won.

Is “We Got Married” scripted? My guess is that it is to a certain extent, but come on, you’ve seen Son Na Eun and Taemin act. You know they’re not great actors. There are some things you just can’t fake. As for the cursing heard in the video…I was cursing at Taemin too. We all got emotionally involved. Do we hate Taemin? No, of course not. Let’s move on and enjoy the show for what it is: a variety program.

In other variety news,

  •  The cast for “1 Night 2 Days” have been mostly confirmed. Sadly, neither Lee Jun Ki nor Choi Minho will be in it. I would have totally watched it for either of them.
  • There will be a pet variety show (no really) and Kara’s Goo Hara and Brown Eyed GirlsJea will participate, along with their pets.
