BTS member Jin completed his military service and celebrated the group’s 11th anniversary with his first fan meeting in two years. During the event, he performed various songs, engaged in activities, and even held a full-fledged hugathon for his fans. He also received a Wooteo cake from Gucci, sparking speculation about Jin becoming their ambassador.

ARMYs claimed to see a collection of gifts awaiting Jin at HYBE headquarters, including items from Gucci. During the 2024 FESTA event, ARMYs noted Jin wearing Gucci loafers in a shared photo. They also saw numerous bags filled with items from the luxury brand.

Netizens were impressed by the quality of the Gucci gifts. Notably, Jin is the only solo BTS member without an ambassador role for a designer brand, leading to speculation about the brand’s interest in collaborating with him.

ATEEZ’s Wooyoung to miss Morocco festival


ATEEZ’s label KQ Entertainment announced Wooyoung’s absence from the upcoming Festival Mawazine in Morocco. According to the label, Wooyoung recently began experiencing severe heat hives, limiting his ability to perform strenuous choreography in sunlight.

The statement added: “Considering the health of our artist as our topmost priority, we have decided that ATEEZ’s performance at Festival Mawazine will take place with 7-members, excluding Wooyoung. During that time, Wooyoung will receive focused treatment, so that he can resume his schedules as long as they do not require overexertion and he can continue to receive treatment.”

ATEEZ will be performing on June 23 as the first-ever K-Pop act to make an appearance at the international music festival.

Police show up at Weverse festival after fan chaos

Police and firefighters were dispatched to Discovery Park in Yeongjong-do, Incheon, where the 2024 Weverse Con Festival was held. Fans lined up early to get a good spot to see the outdoor shows. However, some fans ignored the organized lines and ran toward the entrance, causing chaos.

Netizens reported hearing shouts and cries near the entrance, raising concerns over safety. Others complained about the lack of adequate staff and security personnel managing the lines. Hopefully the festival’s subsequent days will have tighter security, to prevent this from happening again.

BABYMONSTER’s Asa praised for her Y2K fashion


Photos of BABYMONSTER member Asa recently went viral, thanks to her striking Y2K fashion sense. She wore a vest over a tube top and pants, paired with a baker’s boy cap. The outfit perfectly encapsulated the early 2000s aesthetic, blending nostalgia with modern flair.

Netizens praised her gorgeous visuals, and her confidence in carrying out the stylish look. Some even called her the next K-pop fashion icon, saying that she is the new star to watch.
