    YoonA of SNSD Keeps Her Promise with Im SiWan and Visits the Army

    It’s a mandatory duty for Korean man to serve a certain time in the military. During their service, guests may visit them shortly. However those who actually visit the army are very limited. Since the camps are in far deep provinces, only family members, best best friends or girl friends visit them. Even family members don’t really visit them after sometimes have passed.

    Among the celebrities who went to serve the army, Im SiWan was the latest celeb to join. His current broadcasting drama “The King Loves” was all filmed before broadcast, so he was able to join the army although we still see him on TV.  

    YoonA , on “Happy Together” spoke about her drama and her promise to SiWan when he goes to the army. She promised Siwan to visit him during his service with other actors and staff. Her promise may seem nothing much, but it’s really a big deal to be visiting someone in service.

    So, Do you think she kept her promise?

    YoonA and the the drama staff, including Hong JongHyun, Oh MinSeok an other actors have visited SiWan in his army camp and they have posted a picture to prove it! It is known that the staffs, actors and actresses keep in touch with each other because they’ve got so close during their filming.

    Though dramas take a long time to shoot, not all crews get together so well even after the drama is finished. Well, guess  “The King Loves” crew really had a great vibe during their shoot. 

    Im SiWan will be released from the army in 2019, April. Until then! Fans, write him some letters to cheer him up!

    SooYoung, SeoHyun and Tiffany Leave SM, What Holds for SNSD’s Future?

    SNSD has celebrated their 10th year anniversary and had their comeback with “Holiday Night.” Their comeback this year was something of legendary since it reminded people and fans of the group’s reputation and work of 10 years.

    However, though the group seemed to have no trouble during their comeback, the issue of resigning the contract with SM rose to surface and drew attention.  Resigning the contract was not the problem of fiscal matters anymore to SNSD members. It was not the matter of trouble between members. They’ve earned enough and went along well enough for 10 years. 

    It was about continuing their 10 years of reputation or taking different paths and start a 2nd life in their career. 

    As a result, SooYoung, SeoHyun and Tiffany did NOT resign the contract with the entertainment, while TaeYeon, YoonA, YuRi, Suuny and HyoYeon stayed. SM entertainment has officially stated that SNSD will not be disbanded, however, that does not mean that the eight girls would perform as one. Though the group may exist, the members will not be the same. Also, there is still a chance that the official statement can change. Groups such as 2NE1, Kara, 4MINUTES, SISTAR and miss A have all gone through disbandment recently. It wouldn’t be considered strange if SM reports the group’s disbandment tomorrow. 

    Complex feelings overwhelmed fans as they heard the news. They understand the three girls  leaving and the five girls staying and they’ve all made their own choices. However the feeling of lost still existed. Fans say, whether the group disband or not, the legendary group and the years they’ve spent would forever live in the memories. 

    SooYoung and SeoHyun are both currently shooting dramas. What holds for their future of SooYoung and SeoHyun after their drama is still unknown, and same goes for Tiffany.
