[Rumor Mill] Scheming actresses and idol groups at risk of disbandment


1. Famous actress 'A' is said to be hitting on rich married men left and right. Her brand name bags and the apartment she's living in now are all said to have been gifts from these men. Lately, insiders have noticed that she's been trying hard to look like she's living the life of the wealthy, but those around her are supposedly sick of this hypocritical behavior. She was once sued by the wife of one of the men but the man canceled the lawsuit, proving just how charming she must be to them...

2. Another top actress 'B' is said to use any man she can if it's for the success of her career. She always leaves herself open to advances from any powerful men. She recently broke up with 'C' who had stuck with her through her long rookie period once once of her projects hit success but is now trying to get back with him after finding out that 'C' is doing just as well.

3. Actor 'B' is the hot topic of TV drama officials for his arrogant attitude. The young star has grown to becoming the lead roles after the successes of several dramas. The growth of his love calls unfortunately has also meant the growth of his arrogance. He's also taken to ignoring the broadcast companies and PDs that have made him who he is today. One official said, "Before his popularity, he would treat everyone well and everyone used to talk about how respectful he was. Seemingly overnight, he's changed so much that it's put everyone in utter shock. If this is who his true self really is, he's a great actor off screen as he is onscreen."

4. Rumors are spreading around the industry that there is some discord within a popular idol group. A couple of the members have expressed their discontentment to the company and are considering leaving the group, putting the group at risk for disbandment. The reason for these problems is none other than money. The company is said to be failing at properly distributing their income, causing a few of the members to express their frustrations outright. Insiders that came across the rumors had to say, "Such problems always arise once a group starts to do well" and "Handling money problems properly is one of the most important aspects to ensuring longevity of your group's career."

5. Another band that swept the year by storm is also facing a crisis, but this time for the imbalanced treatment of the members. Only one of the members has been enjoying high popularity with frequent TV appearances and CF love calls, causing a gaping difference in the income distribution with the other members. This band is known for their free-spirited attitudes by their own company and broadcast companies so they don't expect any huge changes in the foreseeable future. One insider had to say, "The problem hasn't reached a point where it'd affect their loyalty to one another, but with one member steadily starting to make sure money is being put in only his wallet, it seems their promotional activities might be affected. The band's future is likely at stake with how they handle this matter."

    1. 2pm. They are rumored to have rifts and discomfort. It's not like they are at each others throats all the time.. Rather they grew apart, and act in front of fans. In fact, there are members who pick who they are close to and it causes misunderstandings

  2. Sistar/4Minute are the girl groups that come to mind

    ReplyDelete
  3. 2pm distributes the income equally, so it's not 2PM for sure.

  4. i have two groups in mind for no.5
    a. ZE:A , Kwanghee is the one enjoying high popularity
    b. Miss A, for obvious reason, Suzy's face is everywhere. lol

  7. First, they used "band" not idol group. Secondly, they called it a he: but with one member steadily starting to make sure money is being put in only his wallet, it seems their promotional activities might be affected."
    Any other band than Busker Busker that did well this year?

    ReplyDelete
  8. #5 i think it's FTIsland...Hongki has a lot of solo works and the others almost nothing. It can't be LED A. because they're almost nugu, it can't be CNBLUE because Yonghwa didn't had solo activities this year and didn't guest on shows until recently...BUSKER2 could be too, the main singer has CF and it's very popular...is there another band i'm missing here? :/

    ReplyDelete
  9. #3 is it joowoon?
    gaksital was a big success, as well as baker king (even though he was just 2nd lead male), and next, he will act as lead male in new drama next year.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think it may be Yonghwa from CN Blue. I know I don't live in Korea, but when I do get a chance to see korean CFs when watching korean show videos that have commercials, I always see him.

    I think #3 may possibly be Kim Soo Hyun. I thought about Song Joong Ki and Yoo Seung Ho, but Kim Soo Hyun has had more lead roles than the other two.

    ReplyDelete
  11. i think they may be referring to blind item #4...

    ReplyDelete
  12. #3 is it jowoon?
    Ojagyo Brothers and Gaksital was a big success, as well as Baker King Kim tak Gu (even though he was only second lead male). next year he will act in a new drama too.

    ReplyDelete
  13. As much as I don't want to believe it, yes, FTIsland is most likely being described on #5 omg. You already explained why it can't be CNBlue. Busker2 has their own disbandment rumor but with different reason.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Could also be Kim Soo Hyun? Dream High and that Sun-Moon drama were huge and he was the lead male in both.

    ReplyDelete
  15. #5 sounds like either FT Island or CNblue if not Busker Busker for the band that is having popularity disparity problems. Except, BB have not done anything outside their music right? with that white guy married and the main singer dating a girl don't think it's them. I think it's FT Island since CNBlue guys have done acting this year, Minhyuk and Jungshin in weekend dramas that have done well in ratings, yeah it's FT Island.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah Sistar definitely comes to mind when I read #4. A few of the members (or was it just one? lol) talked about being frustrated with the company's favoritism on a show too.

    ReplyDelete
  17. #5 sounds like JYJ

    " This band is known for their free-spirited attitudes by their own company and broadcast companies so they don't expect any huge changes in the foreseeable future."

    1. Hahaha.. Hi the infamous anonymouse

      Delete
  18. #4 could be any popular group since there's nothing more specific.
    #5 though it's a band and a male one since they describe it as a "he", so it can't be female idol groups like miss a, sistar, or even 4minute for that matter when we think of groups that have members popularity disparity.


    In my conclusion, #5 is FT Island, the band has been always focused on Hongki. They are truly the lab rats of CNblue, compared to Cnblue the individual members are doing a lot better with their solo activities.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yonghwa doesn't have solo CF, the other members are there too...plus he didn't had solo activities this year and he didn't appeared on tv until go show...i'm going for FTI Hongki.
    #3 i'll go with Kim Soo Hyun, he gives me that vibe. :/

    ReplyDelete
  20. don't think it's miss A.. there a part in the statement that says "Such problems always arise once a group starts to do well".. this def was not mA's breakthrough year..

    ReplyDelete
  21. One, Dasom lol she is the one always complaining. Though seems her agency is shutting her up with acting jobs, she is acting in a sitcom and going to be one of the hosts for the golden disk awards.

    Except dunno if the members share their income because other than them there's Miss a and 4minute in existance but apparently they share income but who knows. Suzy and Hyuna are getting dominating so much in their individual activities, even their respective group are dry in the cf apartment.

    ReplyDelete
  22. If only Suzy was a whole group, 2012 has been Suzy's year. She is everywhere, taking in all the rookie awards. I wonder how her unnies feeling of the maknae getting everything.

    ReplyDelete
  23. in my opinion, it sounds like there are more than 2 members for #4 since it said "few members"

    ReplyDelete
  24. i agree with #5. ft island was the first one that i thought of, honestly tho, i don't really know the other members besides hongki and it's sad because they have so much potential & they're pretty talented :/ i'm glad theyre handling cnblue differently tho.

    ReplyDelete
  25. jyj is not a band and i actually think they're all pretty equaled in terms of exposure and popularity. yoochun filmed several dramas, jaejoong filmed a movie, some dramas, having a solo album soon, junsu did a lot of musicals, had a solo album + tour, and they do a lot of cfs/other events together too.

    ReplyDelete
  26. it really has been... i hope AQE does a better job with scheduling things for the other girls next year.. because i'd be pretty choked just sitting on the sidelines too..even tho i love Suzy and all..

    ReplyDelete
  27. My guess is:

    #3 Seo In Guk
    #5 Busker BUsker

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hum, I don't think it's ZE:A though, Kwanghee, Siwan, Dongjun and Hiyungshik all had a pretty good year through different projects. But I've always been worried about how the other members were pretty much invisible with no solo projects or activities.
    I just really hope it's neither them nor FTIsland...nor my 10 other bias groups XD

    ReplyDelete
  29. i think is talking about a group that is raising in popularity, i think is a girl group.

    ReplyDelete
  30. make sense, i didn't notice the band part. ^^;

    ReplyDelete
  31. I seems like it's INFINITE

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Unlikely. They dont fit the descriptions.

  32. #4 seems like Sistar or After School imo.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'd cross out 4minute for #4, they've never exactly been "popular" as a whole. and Hyuna always makes sure to mention 4minute during award ceremonies and even on talk shows when she's by herself so even if the problem is about money, I doubt there's any serious discord going on. I'd put my money on SISTAR.



    it definitely sounds like FTIsland for #5 but I really hope not; they're one of my ultimate biases >_< the boys are all definitely easy-going and they've held out for nearly six years now...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Me too. Because it said that "Such problems always arise once a group starts to do well" . That sounds like Sistar imo.

    ReplyDelete
  35. But After School didnt do well. They said "Such problems always arise once a group starts to do well"

    ReplyDelete
  36. I doubt it's SISTAR, because of the way they divide their income.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm thinking APink. The way the division of income works in SISTAR would prevent something like this to an extent.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I didn't read 5 properly. but think 4 could be the groups i named

    ReplyDelete
  39. haha it's okay, it's confusing too with the #4 thing about the group and #5 with a similar problem with #4. although im pretty sure jyj is pretty tight tho.. i mean with the lawsuit and everything and now there's just the 3 of them. i think they have a good bond :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. yeah his name came to my mind first too...

    ReplyDelete
  41. SISTAR divides all of their income equally, unless it's income from a drama or sitcom. Since only two of their members have acted, I don't think it's SISTAR at all.

    ReplyDelete
  42. #3 Kim Soohyun. Read it too many times.

    ReplyDelete
  43. definitely not miss a..even though suzy dominated the industry this year..her earning on all her CF and Tv appearance etc. exceptt drama earning was split equally to each member!!thats how jyp system work

    ReplyDelete
  44. Are you serious? xD
    I'm sure you don't really know JYJ after your comment.

    ReplyDelete
  45. You do aware that AS can't be disband since they have this graduation and admission system. They can always substitute the members

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wouldn't be JYJ.... because none of them have "frequent TV appearances" .... and well, they have nothing to do with broadcast companies either since they're blacklisted :/ Plus all the members have been busy all year. As someone else mentioned, YC with dramas, Jaejoong with Drama + Movie (soon to be solo mini-album), Junsu with Musical + Album + Tour and they have done CF's and events together as well. Already planning to release their next album in the summer of 2013.

    ReplyDelete
  47. "Only one of the members has been enjoying high popularity with frequent TV appearances and CF love calls"

    but ft island does almost all their CFs as a group, such as toreore and litmus. hongki is usually accompanied by another member on variety shows as well, and the others have solo activities from musicals to dramas, so i really doubt it's ft island. yes the band is focused on hongki, especially for their korean promos, but not to the extent of facing a crisis. if it IS a rumor about ft island, then someone sure loves making rumors about them and it's getting a bit tiring and ridic.

    ReplyDelete
  48. #5 jyj? Yoochun is doing great with his own things. His drama rating is just average, but his getting well known by the public as a solo artist. Solo cfs, solo projects, he's doing good. Junsu did musicals but only his fans and some musical industry people care, solo album was a flop. While jaejoong is... Handsome? But projects flop all around. I'm not sure about the sweeping the year by storm though.. But overall yoochun did great this year compare to the other jyj members

    ReplyDelete
  49. "Such problems always arise once a group starts to do well"

    That don't fit the discretion.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Definitely SISTAR for #4, because their popularity has definitely been on the rise... Can't really say much about 4minute or A-Pink's popularity since they don't exactly have any...

    But I think 4minute or A-Pink could be #5 as both groups have one member in particular with extreme popularity (Hyuna and Eunji) while the other members are sorta in the background. Or even After School...?


    Maybe INFINITE, also. I mean... Woollim does a great job raising groups but after a certain point, they don't know wtf to do with them. Like with Epik High.

    I don't think miss A or any other JYP groups could be in the running because JYP's method of income distribution is pretty much that everyone gets a share of the pie. The only exception would be Nichkhun's commercials in Thailand, which he gets to keep to himself.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think #5 could be Block B... right? D:


    GAH! I don't like any of these stories! And I can't even begin to guess who #1 and #2 are. T__T

    ReplyDelete
  52. MissA??? Like hello, Suzy has been super active.. more active than Hyuna of 4Minute ..

    ReplyDelete
  53. I thought 5 could be Block B for a moment but when I read on, I doubt its them.

    ReplyDelete
  54. free-spirited attitudes...........ft island

    ReplyDelete
  55. It's gonna sound harsh toward infinite tbh, but I don't think the members are at a place to still be okay on their own without the company so I don't think it's them. Besides their CEO travels with them whenever they go overseas so I think the relationship is quite good?

    ReplyDelete
  56. #4 IMO, it's probably RAINBOW... They are just starting to get their name out there again but it's all about Jaekyung and Woori... nobody gives a crap about the other members and they are always treated like Kara's step children. These girls don't even have a van, they have to use public transportation like bus and Subway to get anywhere... BAD MANAGEMENT anyone??? Their house is also really super crappy... it's too small for all of them. Haven't had a single in over a year either :/

    It could also be 4minute...Jihyun is the leader and most people
    don't even know who she is lol.You don't even see the members when they're
    not promoting (and they don't even promote that often so that's saying
    something) except on rare occasions.

    ReplyDelete
  57. none of the block b members get 'frequent TV appearances', let alone CF love calls, so it's definitely not them. The one who earns the most gets his income through producing and song-writing as well as featurings for other artists

    ReplyDelete
  58. Lab rats? Yeah, he said that when his junior had their debut about 9 months? those few years past his management take care of them givin them good songs, #1 on charts eight weeks in a row... What a lab rats xD and because they can't dance their management make that dancing band girl grup, so that makes cn are lab rats 2.0 xD i think their company taking care of cn more cuz they're making more money. Other managements do the same... SM with nonstop GG japan albums... YG's bigbang, Starship's sistar... It's called business dude

    ReplyDelete
  59. It isn't Infinite. Hoya nad L had their dramas this year, Sungyeol had a sitcom last year, Gyu has a solo album and Dongwoo and Hoya are getting ready to promote as a sub-unit and they made lots of appearances as a group this year. I bet that isn't Infinite.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I don't think that #4 fits Infinite. They had lots of activities as a group this year, besides their individual promotions with sitcoms/dramas/solos.
    I bet that fits APink more than Infinite.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh okay. But yeah, I think Kim Soo Hyun may be #3. Yoo Seung Ho's gotten a lot of publicity about that whole "join the army" thing, so I guess it wouldn't be him.

    ReplyDelete
  62. lol, it was them in 2009

    ReplyDelete
  63. band, he , his ...

    ReplyDelete
  64. You can never be sure. Especially since they've recently just been on the rise as a group. Things might have changed, income distribution might have changed.

    "Such problems always arise once a group starts to do well"



    Sistar's year is def 2012 so things are leading towards them.

    ReplyDelete
  65. You never can be sure. Even if Suzy is sharing all her income, she is still getting everything, all the CF's and recognition and popularity. It would be a lie to say that her unnies don't feel jealous at all and bad that the younger member is doing everything while they laze around in the dorm.


    2012 is def Suzy's year and with a lead role next to Lee Seung Gi next year in a historical drama, she is gonna shoot herself even further away from her group if things stay this way.

    ReplyDelete
  66. #4 or #5 definitely 4minute or Miss A, Hyuna & backup dancers and Miss Suzy anyone? They have an unbalanced groups dynamic.

    ReplyDelete
  67. #5 states that "only one of the members has been enjoying high popularity with frequent TV appearances and CF love calls." but zico (or any other member of block b for that matter) do not get frequent tv appearances. None of them have ever been cast in any dramas, CFs or movies. Right now they only have minor activities; PO and zico are mcs on MTV The Show once a week while Kyung and zico are recurrent guests on a radio show and that's about the only indiv activities they have. The whole group was practically banned from most major programmes even while they were still promoting so i don't see how #5 applies. Like I said, zico gets the most income from producing, song-writing and featurings, not from tv appearances and cfs.

    ReplyDelete
  68. People who think it's Infinite have no clue. There is no 'one' popular member and they all get a relatively even pay which they've said many times that they're content with because money isn't an issue for them. The members are a family and they aren't in any position to leave the company anyway. They're very loyal to Woollim and the company treats them extremely well, like family. CEO even lived with them and travels with them often. It's not like they are popular enough individually to do well on their own anyway. They know that. Besides, they've already said that they have big plans for 2013 and that they want to stay together as 7 for as long as possible. They are really happy right now. Bottom line, it's not them.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Is that the only part you read? The rest of the description doesn't fit Infinite at all.

    ReplyDelete
  70. The members have pledged their undying love and allegiance for their CEO many times. lol. They definitely have a good relationship.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Woollim manages Nell and Infinite perfectly fine. Excellently even. The only other person under them is Jisun but she's off in Hawaii living it up and Tasty just debuted. Epik High left on their own and it definitely wasn't because Woollim didn't know what to do with them.

    ReplyDelete
  72. yah i got ur point..i remember Fei admit that she like to try acting like suzy...btw even though miss A finished promoting their song in korean, Miss especially Fei,Jia and Min dont just rest in dorm, they starting to promote their song in china and Taiwan..thats why jia and fei almost landed an acting job in china last 1st half of the year..and yah im 100% sure that suzy always divide her cf,guesting and Mcing etc. earning to her fellow unnies equally, that one of the golden rule in JYPE, Miss A admit that too, even 2pm discussed the equally distribution of their earning before..the reason for that system..Jype believe that the reason u got a project is bcoz of the whole group..

    ReplyDelete
  73. the other ft island members actually earn a lot from their song compositions e.g jonghun , jaejin, seunghyun, they got 40% profits from each songs

    Hongki didn't have solo cfs, all cfs were done with the members

    his only solo activities was his m countdown mc gigs and also his upcoming film

    'Another band that swept the year by storm'

    that doesn't sound like them

  75. Woollim said they wouldn't comment on Tablo with his whole Stanford issue. They didn't even believe and trust in Tablo. That to me means they didn't know what to do. They left Tablo stranded when as a company should have backed him up.

    ReplyDelete
  76. #2 Suzy-> Kim Soo Hyun
    #3 Kim Soo Hyun / Song Joong ki
    #4 Sistar / KARA
    #5 Idk. Ft Island maybe. but I dont see they seem care about money . and IDK where they are now.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I know perfectly well what happened with Tablo, but that's neither here nor there. We're talking about promotions. As in booking events and managing their artists' music, not anything else. Woollim manages the music promotions of all their artists well and contrary to misinformed belief, they do care about their artists and treat them like family. What happened with Tablo was an unfortunate mistake that Woollim would never allow to happen again.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Yeah, they seem genuinely close :) We chose a good group to stan I think!

    ReplyDelete
  79. "Another band that swept the year by storm is also facing a crisis" = Busker busker are the first came into my mind, their album songs ranked high on chart
    knetizens always praise them as the most talented rookie

    ReplyDelete
  80. hongki doesnt get solo CFS, he rarely appears on tv by himself for varieties, the other members have their own activities and earn money from the songs they compose, so there's no reason money should get between them. and as much as i love them they didnt really sweep the year by storm compared to a band like busker busker.

    ReplyDelete
  81. it cant be cn blue all members had individual and group cf, all did dramas, appeared on variety shows and what not they did it all this year as a group and individually

    ReplyDelete
  82. Nah it can't be FT Island because Hongki rarley gers any CF offers and he's currently not doing any solo activities As a primmdonna I know this. It could be CNBLUE since Yonghwa always airs on variety shows and has been the lead for a drama and such.

    ReplyDelete
  83. In Korea, Suzy is not seen as actress but more idol so she's not #2. also, all your choices are too much "idol" like. Most of the time these blind items are about non-idols... and about not so popular celebrities (more popular in Korea than international).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Every cnblue member except yonghwa had their drama this year... I'm not their fan but i knew it. They always appear on every cf together... Jonghyun even appear on some talk show or radio by himself... even in some cf, i think minhyuk is the main focus... So it's not them

  84. i hope its ze:a or 4min ~_~

  85. #3 There's definitely two choices that pop in my mind as soon as I read it: JooWon & Kim SooHyun.

  86. Am I the only one thinking #4 could be Super Junior? If anyone follows forxreal she mentioned something about it in one of her posts a while ago.

    ReplyDelete
  87. But they are all earning money lately? Other than Kangin (and TeukChul), I can't think of anyone who doesn't have any obvious source of income lately.

    ReplyDelete
  88. "popular idol group" - Rainbow is not popular.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Yeah that's what ran through my mind too. The rumour from forxreal was written in August so things could have changed since then.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I really don't think it's Infinite.

    ReplyDelete
  91. It's not 4Minute, nor APink.
    4Minute girls HAVE activities, Gayoon had more photoshoots than HyunA this year, Jiyoon had immortal song, Jihyun had The Idol&Romantic, she also appeared in Love virus MV, they had CFs TOGETHER, Sohyun lately appeared in Weekly idol, and Gayoon and Jiyoon were preparing for their sub-unit debut ( It got postponed because of Gayoon's throat problems, not for other reasons ), this, aside from the fact that the girls actually split their incomes pretty much equally.
    Same thing for Apink, maybe it's the eunji fever right now, but it's not cube's fault, it's because of her rising popularity after Reply 1997, but Naeun too has activities, she just finished filming a movie, and a drama too, the other girls have photoshoots , cfs etc.. They're also preparing for their comeback.. I doubt it's Apink.

    I honestly think it's sistar though...

    ReplyDelete
  92. they weren't even relevant in korea this year...lmfao

  93. how would u know tho....people make mistakes and it can happen again

  94. but but...he's so cute and nice...lol from what i see on 1n2d

    ReplyDelete
  95. I'm thinking #3 is Seo In Guk :( But I hope he's not the one they're talking about... :((

    ReplyDelete
  96. I never thought of someone in #1 and #2

    ReplyDelete
  97. #4 is Miss A or 4minute
    #5 is probably Miss A

    ReplyDelete
  98. Doubt it. "Success of several dramas". Three is not "several". Seo In Guk just debuted this year and only "Reply 1997" is his only successful drama out of the three.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Really hope it's neither since I like both. But several definitely applies to Joo Won. Kim Soo Hyun has only really been the star of two hit dramas, the other dramas he was just the younger version of the lead. Joo Won on the other hand has "Baker King" (high of 50 in the ratings), Ojakgyo Brothers (high of almost 38), and "Bridal Mask" (high of almost 28). Stars wish for those kind of ratings and to have 3 back to back. The man definitely has bragging rights.

    ReplyDelete
  100. But Busker Busker has hardly promoted on broadcast TV. Only Mnet really.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Nah can't be CNBLUE. Yonghwa took a backseat this whole year leaving the other members to have the limelight. It doesn't get bigger than landing a slot on a KBS weekend family drama. You know it's going to be a number one "Nation's Drama" before it even starts. Minhyuk and Jungshin both appeared on those dramas back to back and both dramas were/are number one in the ratings. To top it off, Jonghyun not only debuts as an actor, but he gets to play "THE" Jang Dong Gun's first on screen son. Even has the man telling him after the show wraps that he needs to call every two weeks. Wound up with an OST that did even better than CNBLUE's release this year. This whole year Yonghwa only promoted with CNBLUE and Juniel (for her debut). The only variety appearances he had this whole year was an ep of IY2 (with Jungshin), Running Man, and Strong Heart. Minhyuk got to be on Happy Together and Yonghwa was no where to be found on that show this year. All the CFs with one exception was with the group as a whole. The other members even had solo magazine photo shoots this year.

  103. I thought maybe Z:EA for #5 since Kwanghee is on so many shows recently compared to the other members.

  104. I was thinking maybe Z:EA with Kwanghee having many schedules and TV shows compared to the other members?

  105. Well, well, well, who would've thought #4 would be Block B? I hope things get sorted out between them and the company. Stardom, freakin' pay your artists, man!

    3. Song Joong ki
    4. Block B
    5. This is a big question mark. I originally though ZEA but they didn't sweep the year. Saying that could be an exaggeration which kmedia is known to do.

    #4 sounds like Super Junior...even they talk about the huge income gap between the top earners and the other members...also, besides the current enlistments, it might explain why SM is trying to get the less popular, but arguably more talented members, more promotions, TV spots, and other activities...(some formerly less promoted members who have suddenly been promoted more actively when in the past they weren't that actively promoted even with the advent of various hiatuses/controversies that I am talking about are members like Ryeowook, Sungmin, Yesung, etc whose losses would be a huge blow to SJ's musical abilities)

    I've also been hearing some rumors about a large idol group whose members are beginning to enlist that might be facing a break up because a lot of the members are dissatisfied with the income distribution. thus, some members of this group are considering not renewing their contracts and joining a different agency.
