China Bans Funeral Strippers
The Chinese government is in the news this week as the country's ministry of culture announces that they will "crack down on 'stripping' and other acts of illegal business performance market". The statement was released after controversial videos were circulated featuring paid strippers disrobing in front of parents and children at a Handan funeral - resulting in arrests and a $11,300 fine. (I know. This is a lot to process.) Apparently, funeral strippers have turned into quite a trend in both China and Taiwan, as the region's bereaved have been shelling out some serious cash to pay for strip shows that can go as long as two-and-a-half hours. According to Everett Zhang, assistant professor of East Asian Studies at Princeton University, funerals in the area are treated like one lavish party, celebrating with as many people as possible to ensure that their loved one is sent off properly to the afterlife. "In China, when the person who dies is very old and has lived a long life, this kind of occasion becomes purely a celebration." But why strippers?! According to China's official Xinhua news agency, strippers are hired "to attract more mourners," adding that these racy performances "add to the fun". Blame it on cultural difference, but I can see why something like this would deserve to be shut down. However, while Zhang sees where this situation could be problematic, he's particularly surprised at the bold measures the government is taking to put an end to it. "Local people would not be happy about the arrests. That would be really intrusive and offensive." So what do you think? Should the Chinese government be allowed to arrest and fine the bereaved hiring funeral strippers, or should it be left to the family's discretion?

Boy Groups That I Wish Would Comeback
This is not a list of disbanded groups, just groups that are still active but haven't had a comeback in awhile! Hotshot (Full Group) Their last full group comeback was 'I'm A Hotshot' back in 2015. They had a comeback in November of 2018 but Sungwoon was still with Wanna One at the time. Now Sungwoon is out of Wanna One but is promoting solo, but still in the group. B.I.G B.I.G's last comeback was in 2017. Benji recently released a solo song though! Heedo and Gunmin were in a dance video in July too. J-Hoon is currently serving his mandatory military service sadly. Cross Gene There last music video (a b-side off their latest album) 'Believe Me' was released in May of 2018. It's going to be weird seeing them without Takuya but yeah I need a comeback! Imfact Okay it's only been 7 months since their last comeback but 7 months too long. I need another! Lucente It's been a year since your debut where you at?? Come back! MAP6 Their last comeback was in 2017. Come back to me!!! MyName Their last comeback was in 2015, where you at my boys? I know some had military service but yeah where you been? Are you still together? MVP It's been over two years since your debut? Comeback babies you were so good! XENO-T (Topp Dogg) They did have a Japanese comeback in 2018 but still!!! U-Kiss I mean I know this is impossible but still. Jun is like the only member that can promote and I don't see it being likely that Soohyun and Hoon stay in the group after returning from their service but we'll see. Varsity It's been over a year guys!!! Vermuda It's been over two years since you dropped this hella good debut on us. Where are you? Victon Bring my babies back it's been over a year. I know Seungwoo can't be with them but still!! I need my Seungsik! UNIQ It's been like 3ish years since you dropped Best Friend. I've seen Yixuan on a Chinese program, Seungyoun with MOLA and on Produce X 101. WHERE HAVE YOU GUYS BEEN? Royal Pirates Comeback please!! B1A4 I mean this is just military service and stuff preventing them from coming back but I miss them! Also some mentions: VIXX (but they seem to be planning something so I thought I wouldn't mention them just in case they comeback) High4 (I'm not sure if they are still a group or not? So I won't mention them.) I know all of these are probably because: 1. The company is sleeping on them 2. People are sleeping on them 3. The company is lacking the funds 4. Military Services demanding Members but still that doesn't make me miss them any less! What groups do you miss that haven't come back in awhile?

BigHit Entertainment Denies Jungkook Dating Rumors?!
Hello ARMY! So I got on Twitter and my timeline is filled with BigHit denying dating rumors made about Jungkook. "Big Hit Entertainment clearly states that the claims about our artist Jungkook that are being spread on social media and online communities are not true. While in Geoje Island during his period of rest, he found out that his acquaintances from a tattoo shop were also visiting the area. He then met with his tattoo shop acquaintances and other acquaintances from Geoje Island for a meal and had a karaoke session. This is the truth that has been distorted. We think it is unfortunate that Jungkook’s personal daily life during his period of rest became known in a distorted way. We will figure out whether CCTV footage was leaked or if there was illegal filming and take strong legal action against the disclosure of personal information and invasion of privacy. Furthermore, we announce that we will also take legal action against the spread of false rumors" First of all I am glad BigHit is taking legal action of this whole situation. Second of all if Jungkook was dating anyone we should just be happy for him. Some fans take things way to far. It breaks my heart that Jungkook had to tell BigHit what he was doing on vacation so BigHit could clear things up about the dating rumors. And to those "fans" that followed him, took pictures of him with the tattoo artist. You should be ashamed of yourself. He was on VACATION! Leave the poor boy alone! Let him enjoy his vaction in peace! STOP FOLLOWING THE BTS MEMBERS WHEN THEY ARE ON VACATION!!! GIVE THEM PRIVACY!! "I am absolutely not in a relationship with Jungkook. I am posting this because of the words spreading online and the unfortunate situation of people causing misunderstandings by impersonating me. I didn’t say anything because it was the obvious truth that people would not believe me, interpret my words as they wish, and that I would receive even harsher replies. I would like to once again state that it is absolutely not true that I am dating Jungkook or that I tattooed my initials on him. We are simply close friends, and I am very apologetic as it seems that fans were extremely hurt in addition to myself and people around me. I will not say anything further. I would just like to make it clear that I was not ignoring or disregarding everything" The tattoo artist even had to go and deny the dating rumors. Leave the poor girl alone! She has been getting hate for it. Is this what ARMY is for? Sending hate out to people. We shouldn't be hating on people. We are better than that.

Confession: I'm Addicted To Trying Strange Asian Foods.
Hi, my name is Dani, and I'm a foodie - but only when it comes to all things weird. As those of you who participate in my weekly So Good Or No Good food game, I'm always interested in talking about gross food combinations and dishes that, well, require a certain kind of palette. I thought it might be fun to create a list of strange international foods I've tried that maybe other people wouldn't be into - some left me wanting seconds, and well, others definitely had me running to the bathroom. Have you tried any of these? Century Eggs (China) Century eggs - also known as pidan - get their name because they are soaked and preserved for long periods of times (traditionally, several months) before they're eaten. What normally looks like a regular white and yellow boiled egg turns into translucent black with a consistency kind of like Jell-O. I thought these were surprisingly delicious. Once you get over the fact that the eggs are black and have a different smell than a normal hard-boiled egg, you'll find that it's still really tasty! Pork Dinuguan (Philippines) Dinuguan looks like a pretty unassuming stew with a color is reminiscent of a Mexican mole sauce, but the taste couldn't be any more different. It's made with anything from standard pork to more questionable parts like the lungs, kidneys, intestines, ears, heart, or snout, and it's all simmered in pig blood. As far as this one's concerned, I was able to make it through a few bites, but the texture and the heavy iron-flavor of the jellied pig blood sauce really grossed me out. (However, my Filipino friends insist this can be SUPER delicious, so I'm waiting for their moms to make me some!) Yukhoe (South Korea) There's really not much to explain when it comes to yukhoe. It's ground raw beef served with raw egg and a variety of seasonings. Sometimes it's served as you see in the picture above, and other times, it's over rice with an assortment of vegetables as 'yukhoe bibimbap'. Yukhoe is actually really delicious! First, I was scared because there's so much 'NOPE!' here, but yukhoe is served cold, so the beef flavor is mild. Also, the seasoning does a good job of keeping you from feeling like you're shoveling raw hamburger meat in your mouth. (Make sure you're ordering yukhoe at a reputable place so you don't get sick!) Natto (Japan) Natto is a fermented soybean dish that is traditionally served at breakfast. With a stringy consistency and a strong odor, it's known to be an acquired taste - even within Japan! Natto is often served plain, but you can also see it rolled up onigiri-style. I couldn't get past the first bite or two plain, but I will say that eating it with soy sauce and mustard (which is often provided when you order natto), definitely helps you get it down. Yeah, this was a once-and-never-again dish for me. Zhū ěr duo (China) Zhū ěr duo is a popular Chinese appetizer of sliced braised pig ear, commonly served both hot or cold. The outer skin is chewy and soft, while the strip of cartilage has a crunch that might be unfamiliar to people trying it for the first time. Personally, I felt like the texture took me a bite or two to get used to, but once I had, I actually found pig ear to be pretty good! I don't know if I could eat a whole lot of this, but it's really nice as an appetizer. Dalkbal (South Korea) Dalkbal is a dish popularly served as something of a pub snack in South Korea. It's chicken feet prepared in a spicy sauce of red pepper paste and sesame oil. Overall, it's light and meaty, but definitely has plenty of crunchy cartilage inside. Dalkbal is super spicy! I don't think I realized I was such a heat wimp until I tried it for the first time. The cartilage gets in the way of it being anything close to filling, but it's a great snack, especially for you beer and hot wings types. So now I want to know about the unusual foods YOU'VE tried. Share your own stories! Is there a food in your family's culture that a lot of people outside of it wouldn't be into? Are there strange foods you were scared to try, but actually liked eating a lot? Let us know in the comments below!
NCT President & Council Intro [+ CMTY Plans]
Hello everyone, it's your NCT President. Today I wanted to share with you the plans the team and I have made for this term! There are currently 8 of us on the council and I've decided to split them up into Units (as NCT does.) So we have 4 Units in total and here they are: 127 Unit: The 127 unit is lead by the NCT 127 CMTY President and my fellow NCT editor @QueenPandaBunny. Myself, @QueenyCrossGene and @Yugykookie97 are also in this unit to promote the boys! The boys in this unit they'll be posting for are Taeil, Johnny, Taeyong, Yuta, Doyoung, Jaehyun, WinWin, Jungwoo, Mark, and Haechan. Dream Unit: The Dream Unit is lead by editor @MaeLyn, myself and @Starbell808 are also in this unit to help promote the boys! The boys in this unit that they'll be posting for (until they graduate) are Renjun, Jeno, Jaemin, Haechan, Chenle, and Jisung. NCT Dream has no president so it is still an interest but I thought I'd list the link here for you to follow the interest! WayV Unit: The WayV Unit is lead by the WayV CMTY President and fellow NCT editor @kpopfan88. Myself and @MelissaGarza are also in this unit to promote the boys! The boys in this unit are Kun, Ten, WinWin, Xiaojun, Lucas, Hendery, and Yangyang. U Unit: As to not restrict any of my editors from posting for their biases if their bias isn't in the unit they are representing I made the U Unit open for every editor. So every editor can post for any member in NCT! NCT U has no president so it is still an interest but I thought I'd list the link here for you to follow the interest! - If you haven't joined the NCT CMTY yet you can do so by clicking here! - I made these units up so that all the NCT members have a chance to get posted for. I feel like this gives an equal chance to all the members to be given a chance to shine and I thought it was a perfect way for the NCT 127 and WayV CMTYs to connect with the main NCT CMTY. - Also at this time if you'd like to be added to our taglist (or removed) please do let me know!! - NCTzen Council: @Halsyeon @MaeLyn @QueenPandaBunny @QueenyCrossGene @MelissaGarza @kpopfan88 @Starbell808 @Yugykookie97 NCTzen: @SimplyAwkward @IsoldaPazo @OppasManBun @jademarie4567 @Karinamiramda81 @bapastro @PrincessUnicorn @JohnEvans @ElanorKriegel @sukkyongwanser @KenyaMendoza @ParkKyungSoon @vkookie47 @simpsonsamantha @KpopIsPleasing @rocklv @Candy02 @kpopayisyen @samcorsam @dalenalw @Tiffiedannie If you'd like to be tagged or untagged please let us know!
