Fans first speculated G-Dragon and former After Schoolmember Jooyeon may be in a relationship in November of 2016. A series of social media postings hinted the two K-Pop idols went on a special secret date.

Fans believed pictures from G-Dragon’s Weibo and Jooyeon’s Instagram to be from the same time and place. Of course, the speculations remained speculations only.

A whole year later, in October of 2017, dating rumors began circulating again when another set of social media postings became alleged evidence that “proved” G-Dragon and Jooyeon are indeed in a relationship. As soon as some Kwai videos from Jooyeon’s personal Kwai account were leaked, the speculation was rekindled and fans pointed out different pictures that suggested the two idols are together.

At this point, both parties spoke up and denied the news of their relationship to be true. G-Dragon and Jooyeon, and their respective agencies, claimed they are good friends.

YouTube is cracking down on K-Pop Reaction channels, and reactors are not happy about it.

JoseOchoaTV, Ridgy720, KMREACTS, and BANGTANGSUS are only a few of the many K-Pop YouTubers this copyright crackdown has affected.

Some YouTubers, like BRIS X LIFE, have already lost their channels. Others, like JREKML who has over one million subscribershave received warning strikes and are now scrambling to take precautions by deleting copyrighted content.

Three strikes and you’re out; that is YouTube’s copyright policy.

If a channel receives one or two copyright notices from copyright holders, the user must demonetize and/or delete the copyrighted video in order to return to “good standing”. If the user fails to take action and receives a third strike, the channel will be deleted.

Old school ‘reactors’ have been around since the start of YouTube’s K-Pop community. They are no strangers to YouTube’s unpredictable copyright infringement sweeps, but this one even took them by surprise.

The TV program Secret Unnie has helped several female K-Pop idols find fellow female celebrities, creating some of the strongest sisterhoods in the industry. It seems the latest “Unnie (언니, older sister)” and “Dongsaeng (동생, younger sibling)” couple is Sunmi and Red Velvet‘s Seulgi!

After seven episodes together, Sunmi and Seulgi grew extremely close. For their last shoot, the two idols wrote letters to each other. The show’s official Instagram account shared these handwritten letters that are the beginnings of what is about to be K-Pop’s most visually beautiful sisterhood.

“Dear Sunmi Unnie,
This is kind of embarrassing… lol. When I first saw you, I was only 14 and dreaming of becoming a celebrity. Now that we’re working in the same industry and we’ve met through this show, I’m extremely grateful. It meant so much to me to get to know you better! Whenever I saw you at studios, I thought you’re amazing but I could never approach you. So when you opened up to me first and called me your “dongsaeng”, I fell even more in love with you – not only as an artist but as a person. I loved listening to you talk. Everything you told me will help me greatly in the future. I hope our friendship doesn’t end here and I look forward to being like a real sister to you. Thank you so much for the wonderful two days!” — Seulgi

Korean Age Is Different Than International Age..Why?

Re-Blogged By: De De Tillman

Media: koreaboo

Posted: Tuesday June 12, 2018 @ 4:05 am PST

CLICK HERE TO LEARN ABOUT THE KOREAN CULTURE

“How old are you?”. No question raises a woman’s hackles quite like this one does. In many cultures, it is considered impolite to ask someone’s age, but age is one of the first things that native Koreans will want to know about you.

The question isn’t mean to be offensive. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Koreans want to know your age simply because they want to make sure that they are using the appropriate speech level and manners while interacting with you.

In Korea, a newborn baby is considered one year’s old at birth because the nine months of pregnancy count as part of the child’s first year of life. Koreans also experience a collective birthday every Lunar New Year as their Korean age counts the number of years they’ve been alive during as opposed to the length ot time you’ve been alive for. Your actual birthday may not be until December, but you will still age up as soon as the Lunar New Year arrives. Since Korean age can add one to two years to your international age, older K-Pop fans may not be too happy about this!

Only the CEO of Jang Ja Yeon’s agency and Jang Ja Yeon’s manager were indicted for violence and defamation.

The CEO received 4 months in prison and 1 year of probation, for physically abusing the actress. The manager received 1 year in prison, 2 years of probation, and 160 hours of community service for defaming the CEO.

As the recent #MeToo movement grew stronger in Korea, those who remember Jang Ja Yeon’s case called for a re-investigation. In February of 2018, a Blue House petition was started and signed over 230,000 times, urging the prosecution to re-investigate her case.

To the petition, the Blue House responded that, while the statute of limitations may have expired for things related to the case, the prosecution is expected to fully review all aspects involved with the case should it be selected for re-investigation. By April of 2018, the case was chosen as one of the several cases to be reviewed for possible re-investigation and Koreans grew hopeful.

Finally, on June 5th, 2018, the South Korean Justice Ministry has appointed the prosecution to reopen the case of Jang Ja Yeon and investigate what was the nation’s most scandalous case of its decade. The case has two months before its statute of limitations expires.

The list by Jang Ja Yeon not only reveals names but also depicts what she went through as a rookie actress in the industry. She was forced to serve as sexual entertainment for movie and drama producers, officials of press companies, and more. She was threatened if she turned down these “sponsor (스폰서, high-profile figures offering financial support in exchange for sex)” offers.
