Everything That Happened in the K-World This Week

August 21, 2022

What’s better than getting all your country’s gist? Doing amebo for another country’s gist. I felt like you people deserved to know about all this important news, so here we are. Here’s 8 things that happened in the K-World this week.

BTS becomes the 1st male artist to surpass 70 million YouTube subscribers 

My boys need to win an award for constantly breaking records. They hit the 70 million milestone on their BANGTANTV YouTube channel, which is wild because it’s not the channel that has their music videos. Their power! The only other artist to hit this milestone was BLACKPINK in November 2021. Well done ARMY and BTS.

Kevin Oh and Gong Hyo Jin are getting married!

It doesn’t get more “God when?” than this for fans of actress, Gong Hyo Jin, and singer, Kevin Oh. The singer took to his Instagram to share the news of their upcoming marriage. He also shared the sheet music for a song he composed and Hyo Jin wrote the lyrics to.

For those who aren’t fans, now’s a good time to re-watch Hyo Jin’s dramas and fall in love with her. Start with From Pasta, The Greatest Love, It’s Okay, That’s Love, The Producers and When The Camellia Blooms, and you’re in for a treat.

Extraordinary Attorney Woo says goodbye for now

Our beloved show came to a wrap with its final episode on Thursday, August 18th, 2022. While we’re sad to see it go and wondering what we’ll do with our lives every Wednesday and Thursday from now on, let’s rejoice for the cute ending we deserved.

We wait patiently for a new season in 2024. Woo supremacy forever.

Alchemy of Souls returns

For fans of Alchemy of Souls, this week might as well be Christmas after missing Mu-deok and Jang-Uk on our screens for 13 whole days. While we have four more episodes to go, we’re glad none of the good guys has died yet and excited about the drama we’ll witness on Saturday. If Naksu doesn’t fight somebody and win, we riot. Enjoy this picture of our favourite couple.

Girls’ Generation debuts at billboards hot trending songs top 5

Girls’ Generation fans did not come to play with their queens’ return. Girls Generation’s Forever 1 album debuts its titular lead single at #5, marking the group’s first appearance on the chart in five years. When you’re big, you’re big, and not even a scandal can stop you. 

All your faves are sick

Not every time support with streams, sometimes support your faves with prayers. Kang Daniel and Dino, from SEVENTEEN, tested positive for Covid-19, and Sunoo from ENHYPEN has health issues. Nothing will happen to them, but you people should sometimes be praying. 

Hyun Bin is coming back!

It might not be for a drama, but the cast of Confidential Assignment 2: International will appear on the game show, The Game Caterers, and I’m more than excited to see Hyun Bin act goofy with his fellow cast members. This is his first TV appearance since he married Son Ye-jin, and while we understand their need to disappear for a bit, we’re just excited to see him again. 

Are you ready for BLACKPINK?

BLACKPINK’s music video for their song, Pink Venom, blew my mind. That clip of JISOO playing the Geomungo now lives rent-free in my head. The visuals are stunning as usual, and I just know the song is about to become an anthem. I’m ready to scream-sing it every day until people are sick of me.
