In an official statement released through her Twitter (via allkpop), the Wonder Girls leader said: “I respect all the mothers in the world who have experienced the mysteries and marvels of life..^^ We have been granted a honeymoon baby. I think it’s a suitable time to deliver the news of our baby now that I’m into my 3rd month ^^ Please pray that our baby will be able to grow healthily in my belly!”
Sunye's pregnancy doesn't come as much of a surprise. The Wonder Girls' current hiatus was her doing, with the songstress wanting to take some time out of the group to focus on married life with her Christian missionary husband. However, having a baby on board obviously means that the Wonder Girls won't be getting back together any time soon, if ever. As we all know, a K-pop idol's schedule is relentless and unforgiving, and Sunye doesn't strike us as the type who's going to leave her kid at home with a nanny while she jets across the continent to perform in concerts and sign CDs.
Realistically, if we ever see Wonder Girls back together, it'll probably be like Shinhwa, who went on hiatus for several years before reuniting and making a huge comeback as grown adults.
Anyway, a big congratulations to domestic goddess Sunye and her new life as a wife, mother, and missionary!
Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
25 years ago, pop stars and rappers were were expected to stay in their respective lanes. But Mariah Carey proved that hip-hop and pop were a match made in heaven—changing popular music as we know it.
Hip-Hop is pop—not in sound, but rather in terms of influence and authority.
Certainly pure pop—pasteurized and whipped into its ultimate peak in the early 2010s—is still breathing, though despite its name, the genre's reign as the chieftain of popular music has ended.
Drake and Bad Bunny are as much of pop stars in 2020 as Carly Rae Jepsen and Kesha were in 2012. Spotify reports that, at this very moment, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP" is the most-streamed song in the United States. Immediately following that is trap-pop cut "Mood," a TikTok-famous summer bop by 24kGoldn and Iann Dior, two of many rising zoomer rappers who have embraced Hip-Hop's guidance in most melodic forms, like trap-pop, emo rap, alternative hip-hop, and pop-rap. And if that's not enough to give Hip-Hop a throne, Nielsen Music has confirmed that eight of the top 10 artists of 2020 so far are, of course, rappers.
