With prominent fourth-generation girl groups like aespa and IVE, top female soloist IU, and global fan favorites NCT and EXO, Kakao Entertainment has been laying the groundwork for a significant global expansion.
EXO's Kai began his military service on the 11th, a duty that every South Korean man must fulfill. The particular disappointment felt by fans and the public regarding Kai's enlistment stems from its unexpected timing.
The excitement of completing a puzzle by gathering its scattered pieces cannot be put into words. Teams that have been separated due to military hiatuses and different agencies are coming back together. This news brings joy to fans who have been waiting for their comebacks and fandoms that had little hope for full group activities. The 'Oppas' that ruled the 2010s are making their return.
BTS member Jungkook recently expressed his distress over being targeted by extreme fans who go as far as invading his privacy, including food delivery "attacks." Sadly, he's not the only one. Idols from TWICE, EXO, and SEVENTEEN have also faced harm from these so-called fans, whose behaviors leave us questioning whether they should be called fans at all.
