According to latest reports, TVXQ‘s Yunho is expected to enlist in the military this August.

Yunho’s impending military enlistment was foreshadowed after the artist revealed it would be the last time for awhile he will be meeting with Japanese fans at the 10th anniversary tour earlier in April. Born in 1986 and standing at 29 years of age (30 years old in Korea), Yunho is well at the age where he must enlist.

However, before he enlists, he will be completing several activities, including appearing in an upcoming web drama series I Order You set to air in mid-June for 16 episodes. Following the end of the drama, he will be enlisting.

UPDATE: SM Entertainment has clarified that the enlistment date is still to be decided. However, as they indicated a few weeks ago, the idol will definitely be enlisting in active duty this year.

Ryu Soo Jung {Lovelyz} Accused Of Being Under SM Entertainment

In a recent broadcast of a radio program, Lovelyz member Ryu Soo Jung claim that her group was under SM Entertainment has upset many fans. 

During a conversation between Soo Jung, SHINEE‘s Jonghyun, and Jung Jun Young, when Jonghyun mentioned SM Entertainment, the Lovelyz member proudly stated that her group was also part of the company.

While Jonghyun was taken aback by the comment, Jung Jun Young asked, “Lovelyz is under SM too?, leading Soo Jung to clarify that Lovelyz and their label Woollim Entertainment were under the subsidiary S.M. Culture & Contents, also known as C&C.

While it is true that Woollim Entertainment is technically under SM Entertainment, the merger between the two companies has been a controversial issue among fans. Many fans who watched the video broadcast of the show were offended by Soo Jung’s comments, particularly her lack of hesitation and apparent pride in claiming to be part of SM Entertainment.

Soo Jung-ah, you’re under Woollim…Not C&C but Woollim.

Soo Jung-ah, you’re under Woollim… Have more pride about Woollim…

Would she still have said she was SM too if she was not under a merger; even with the merge, Woollim has still maintained their name and has their own page on YouTube..; and their new song is totally a Woollim feel without any SM involvement…

Fans also took to Pann to discuss the singer’s faux pas, with many concluding that she should have been more considerate of her label and labelmates when making such a statement.

1. [+69, -2] Does she not realize that INFINITE sacrificed a lot for Woollim to grow as big as they have now and that their debut was even possible because of the money INFINITE made… then she should be proud to be under Woollim but what’s up with her;;

2. [+42, -0] Did she really have to say “We’re SM too” by even cutting Jonghyun off in the middle of his talk? ㅋㅋㅋ And she didn’t even clarify that it was C&C until Jung Jun Young asked her ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ INFINITE suffered so much hate during the merger and she has no consideration for that at all. I’m not trying to put Woollim down but what she said is basically the same as some Woollim trainee going around lying that she is now an SM trainee because she passed Woollim’s auditions.

3. [+42, -1] How hard must she have thought that she is an SM artist that she’s able to say that so easily? INFINITE… Woohyun especially, went through so much during the news of the merger… Ryu Soo Jung, do you realize that the rehearsal room you practice in has the Woollim logo and the logo in front of your music video is Woollim too? If you wanted to be SM so bad, why didn’t you audition for SM instead? ㅎㅎ

Female mixed martial arts fighter Song Ga Yeon is looking to terminate and nullify her contract with her agency E&M

The popular female fighter said, “”The agency did not give me the education needed in order to improve my athletic abilities. They did not conduct their duty of profit sharing properly and delayed the payout from TV appearances for two months and were not transparent about issue of payment. They also forced me to appear on shows forcefully, and the contract was not reached fairly to both sides initially.”

However, in response, E&M revealed on April 13th that “She did not fulfill her duties as an athlete by committing such acts like not participating in the team’s official practice. Also, since she was 19 years old she regularly had abnormal relations with a specific team member and this led her to bring personal issues to her work.”

The agency added, “She also asked for special treatment constantly. The coach and director of the team gave her several warnings, but Song Ga Yeon disappeared when issues arose and even cut contact; we do not understand her attitude at all.”

Song Ga Yeon rose to popularity after appearing on SBS Roommate – Season 1, and eventually left the show to focus more on her MMA career.

The netizens have been sued for creating and spreading malicious rumors through an online community regarding the couple’s true story about their divorce.

Furthermore, during that period, Kim Hyun Joo gave birth to their supposedly third son, who has been confirmed to have a different father by a DNA test. As a result, while they were filing for divorce, his wife gained the custody of their third son.

With such malicious rumors, Kim Hyun Joo has been suffering with baseless nicknames, including, “Illicit Lover” and “Divorced after giving birth to a child of another man.” She has testified her innocence that she has not been seeing another person prior to and even post divorce.

Following the rumors, Seoul Gangnam Police Department proceeded to perform an actual DNA test for all three children, only to disqualify the unfounded rumors to be false. The results confirmed that all three children have the corresponding DNA of their father and mother. According to Seoul Contract District Court, ten netizens, who were found via IP address tracing, have been charged as of March 27th. Additionally, ten more netizens were charged afterwards.

Musician Yoo Hee Yeol apologizes for his inappropriate comment during his most recent solo concert.

At noon on April 6th, Yoo Hee Yeol shared his thoughts and gratitude on TOY’s official homepage. He left a message titled, “I’m really thankful to all.. every one of you.” This heartfelt apology letter was written in response to his inappropriate remark made during his recent concert. From April 2nd to April 4th, he held his solo concert, Da Capo, at Olympic Park’s Gymnasium in Seoul. On the second night of his concert, he mentioned, “And so that I can get the energy for the concert… can all the ladies sitting in the front spread their legs? .. Don’t get me wrong, it just means that I want you to be open-minded while listening to the songs. Do you hear me?” Despite being a joke, such remarks have appalled some audience members.

Yoo Hee Yeol mentioned in his letter, “Although the concert was a place for our gathering, some of you may have felt uncomfortable regarding my thoughtless and unbecoming actions and comments.. tonight is one filled with regrets. I am ashamed to have only just realized that words can be powerful enough to destroy long cherished memories. I deeply apologize.”

He continued, “However, thanks to all of you, I was able to complete the concert. It was the time of my life that I could never have imagined. I can’t really grasp that it actually happened even until now.. I feel like it might have been a dream. When I first prepared for the concert, I wondered if this was achievable… if this would only cause inconvenience to people around me.. I have nothing special, in fact, I’m not even good at singing, but whatever good karma I had in the past… whenever I look around, there are always inspiring and good people supporting me. I’m always so thankful and sorry.”
