I just watched her EMA's performance and she's grown so much as a performer. But knowing MAMA's, it's probably gonna be some has-been act who was relevant like 10 years ago.
Does Asia know Camila as solo, though? I doubt it. They probably know her from the girl from Fifth Harmony.

Best bet will be Ariana Grande.

MNET will not invite someone relevant as Ariana, never. Wasn't it last year they had Timbaland? Lol ... I don't really care for these foreign acts at all.

* WannaOne's comeback song = such a non event

I'm excited for Kard's comeback on the 21st!!!! And Red Velvet !

Anyone else here watching The Uni+?

I'm completely and utterly obsessed. Haven't been this invested in Korean show for quite a while actually.

Firstly, I think it's just a good show and concept in general. But more importantly, there's dozens of idols that I've supported (Dal Shabet, Brave Girls, DIA, Sonamoo) who are getting more limelight and also some groups/idols I've previously enjoyed too (Spica, T-ara's Areum, Feeldog, Boyfriend, 100%, Myname, The Ark, Tiny-G).

Also, it's been great to find some undiscovered talent for me! I was never bothered with Good Day's debut this year, but their personality on the show totally had me hooked! I've completely done a 180 on that group and watching all their performances of 'Rolly' and definitely considering myself a fan now. I am hoping that some members they make the cut!

I mean, she's not a household name yet but "Havana" is shaping to be a major hit. #1 on Spotify Hong Kong & Indonesia, #2 Malaysia & Philippines, #3 Singapore, #4 Taiwan & #7 Japan. My bet would be either her or Dua Lipa. Dua has a lot of stans here.

Anyway, I'm not sure if I'm excited for KARD's comeback. "Hola Hola" definitely killed their momentum for me. Curious if they're gonna change their sound though.

Also, I haven't been invested in watching The Unit and some other programs that are happening right now. Although I know CL & Taeyang are judges in one of the programs so I might watch them.

LMAO, I thought Square 3 would have been released this month, hopefully early January, it's insane seeing they've only had digital releases and no mini albums :/

Lay will not be participating in EXO's upcoming tour due to his solo activities.

I love how Jessica was kicked out because apparently her solo schedule clashed with SNSD's group schedule... yet she never missed a tv appearance or tv performance, concert or MV shooting.

Why hard? She was the most popular member of the 2nd biggest Korean GG, her label gave her multiple solos, she got to collaborate with Western artists, tour through the US etc. etc.

She was the leader so she felt responsible for the breakup, she was crying throughout that clip and I don't think we've ever seen her cry before. She even had to wrote that long ass Instagram post to explain everything because everyone was blaming her solo for 2NE1's breakup even though the reality is, the group started to fall apart because of Bom's incident (and Minzy being unhappy with YG for not giving her any solo activities).

The reason Jessica was kicked out is pretty obvious. SM won’t get even a single penny from Jessica’s business. That’s why they gave her an option to quit her business or quit GG. She didn’t want to give up any so SM made the decision for her. SM forced her out of GG.

Lay, on the other hand, is still handled by SM so they earn money from his solo activities. That’s why it’s okay with them if he couldn’t join EXO’s activities. Besides, Lay is SM’s foothold in China. So they wouldn’t take a risk of losing the last Chinese member of EXO.

The other members also stood against her. Sones like to forget that and blame it all on SM.

Who knows what SM could have done to the other members that made them stand against her? They had just re-signed new contracts at the time and if they stood against SM, I don’t think SM would still let them release music or do solo/group activities. I don’t think Seohyun, Sooyoung and Tiffany would leave SM if they were really a great company. SM had a lot of controversies with how they treat their artists. I wouldn’t be surprised if my theory was true.

They had all re-signed their contracts, including Jessica. Jessica mentioned that she received permission from SM several times and it was the members who confronted her and told her to either quit B&E or leave SNSD.

When its 8 against 1... obviously the company is gonna side with the majority. Losing one member is better than losing 8.

I'm not saying SM is a great company, but I don't see why Jessica would lie about stuff like that.

Random, is it just me or do all of KARD's music videos look the same? I mean, not exactly all of them but like the majority. They always have similar settings, dark lighting, all the neon colors and even similar dance moves. It's interesting at first but now it's just getting boring.
