2. 1 to 10, not 9

The 2nd track in TWICE’s new mini-album is titled “1 TO 10”. The current number of TWICE members is 9, so netizens claim that the title has a second meaning – that with SoMi, TWICE will become 10 members.

A source reported, “Suzy is preparing for her solo debut as a K-Pop idol. As much as a big star that she is in the industry, her solo debut has garnered a lot of interest. She will be making a big impact in the K-Pop world.” Suzy has already been active as a solo artist by featuring on the OSTs of her various dramas, and even releasing a special duo track with EXO’s BaekHyun early this year.

Although fans should be celebrating Suzy’s official debut as a solo artist, netizens’ comments have been speculating on the disbandment of miss A. Many of the comments suggest that the company was only pushing Suzy among the miss A members. The timing apparently seemed perfect for the return of the group, with Jia leaving the group a few months ago, Fei releasing her debut track, and Min being active through “Born to be Wild” and Hit the Stage. However, with only Suzy making a comeback to the K-Pop scene, many of miss A’s fans have expressed their disappointment in the agency, even going far as speculating the end of miss A as a group.

Fans will be able to meet Suzy as a solo artist with her debut set for December of this year.

Take a look at the alleged proof and let us know which you’d rather ship!

 

Irene & Simon Dominic

Irene and Simon D come from two very different genre scenes. Irene is the leader of Red Velvet, one of the most popular K-Pop princess groups. Simon D is the King of K-HipHop, where he rules the underground with his AOMG crew. So how did the rumors between them start?

1. Keyword: “Simon D Irene”

As with any beginning of dating rumors, it started with the most searched keyword through search engines. When netizens typed “SsamD (Simon D’s nickname)” into Naver, Irene’s name was always at the top of the lists. Why would netizens worry over such a minor detail? Sasaeng fans are usually the first to know about any celebrity couples, and they always search key terms about the inside information – leading to the most popular search terms. Thus, the Simon D & Irene rumor was born.

2. Simon D the next Choiza?

Things started to calm down after no farther news, but that all changed with one post. An anonymous user posted onto a forum claiming that “Simon D is the next Choiza…” Choiza garnered a lot of hate from the public after supposedly ‘seducing’ young Sulli (who was also a SM pop princess).

What’s more, when netizens begged for more information, the user replied that Simon D and the idol met when the idol started getting private rap lessons from the AOMG artist. The user also revealed that the idol’s name started with “I”. An idol in charge of rap, who’s name starts with I? It all started pointing toward Irene of Red Velvet.

Irene & SeHun

The second alleged coupling is definitely more believable. As you all know, Irene and SeHun are both idol artists under SM Entertainment. The two were always acquainted through their mutual company since their training days, but rumors started flying after the two showed amazing chemistry during a photoshoot for Ceci Magazine.

1. Keyword: “Irene SeHun”

It was a given that the popular search key term after Irene was Sehun. The interesting part about this fact was that the search term began trending even before the two idols got together for Ceci. Interesting… What was it that the sasaeng fans knew, but were hiding?
