Okay, so there’s actually quite a bit that has happened this time around, including a few news items I didn’t really want to dedicate much time to, multiple disbandments, and health news (including everybody getting pregnant).

The ILLIT choreography thing was something that was probably less noteworthy when it happened back in February, but that got more attention now. I just feel bad for ONF, and an underrated part of a K-pop group’s touring going well is just finding one of the simply bad agencies instead of the truly horrible ones.

Jennie’s thing … it’s illegal and fucking annoying to do around staff, but the proportion of backlash seems insane even if her fans are being annoying. Having to apologize is deserved, and hopefully she stops being one of those annoying smokers, but people are like trying to convince me this proves she’s a horrible person and I simply don’t give a shit that much. Sorry?

Zion.T’s exit is noteworthy but I wouldn’t say it’s all that surprising. However, I was sorta surprised by Yujeong signing up elsewhere, as I thought she was going to ride off into the sunset and out of entertainment. Guess that might explain some rumored bad blood with BB GIRLS.

Three disbandments in one clearinghouse post is rough, especially MIRAE, who DSP surely had high hopes for after APRIL disintegrated. KARD is pretty stable for them as primarily a touring group, but I guess all their eggs are in YOUNG POSSE’s basket now to vault them back to the mainstream.

Crush needing spinal surgery at 32 is fucking brutal dude, kinda hits home, honestly. Once you’re on the other side of 30, one wrong bending motion can send your core health to the netherworld. Additionally, the Eddie news is obviously related to his outburst against his group and the company. Would like a more detailed explanation of things at least, but they’re doing damage control by hoping it fades from the news cycle.

Obviously the health update that matters the most to me personally is Siyeon, but there are rumors she could be back by the end of the month, so hopefully it’s not serious and not relating to her voice. Oh and hey, positive news for once in this section! Lia is back with ITZY, so that’s nice to hear.

Good luck, boys.

Song Joong Ki got to work immediately, and it does kinda lend credibility to the speculation that the conflict with Song Hye Kyo might’ve been about family. The ASH ISLAND and CHANMINA marriage is funny cause it sorta came out of nowhere to me, yet when I read the headline I was like, “Yeah, that makes sense.”

Hoping for the injuries to stop, honestly.
