Minzy Opens Up About Depression, Suicidal Thoughts & Leaving 2NE1
This was a really powerful read and shows what so many young idols are going through right now :( See the link above for the full thing but here are some quotes: ...but the star notes that four years of waiting for her professional life to start at age 15 stunted her personal growth and social skills. "I didn't know how to have relationships with people," she reflects. "Since I was so young in such a controlled environment, I never learned how to socialize. I really didn't have a normal childhood -- I never went out to play with other kids. I was just training and everyone was older than me." "People, netizens were critiquing the fact that, you know, we were not the prettiest group," she says. "We were the 'ugly group.' I didn't know how to process that, I held that in. It was tough. [As a group], we pretended it was not a big deal and tried to forget about it, but you can't forget about it -- it's tough. I was trying to keep up with the other girls in the group in terms of maturity, but when you're up against these girl groups who look like models and you're doing something different -- cool, but different -- you deal in a different way." "I would go on stage and everyone was so supportive, they'd love me," she says. "Then when the stage was done, I would be in the hotel feeling so empty. Life felt like just a stage. I didn't know what was my life about; I wasn't sure if life was better as a performer or if life would be better just alone. It was such a contrast, but I never had the time to figure out how to balance both being on stage and being alone." Minzy fighting!

BTS, TWICE and BLACKPINK Hit with Copyright Strikes on YouTube
Some company called Aiplex has claimed ownership over BTS, Twice, and Blackpink videos which took them off YouTube for a few hours. For YouTube, anyone can make a copyright claim and get videos taken down (if you can prove some sort of ownership like you posted the vid first or something) which is notoriously a horrible system. Top girl group TWICE experienced a temporary shutdown of three music videos: “Likey” is the fifth most-viewed music video by a girl group of all time. “Like Ooh-Ahh” was the nonet’s debut single that currently sits at 280 million views. Meanwhile, their latest single “YES or YES” became the seventh-biggest 24-hour debut on YouTube at the time of its release. Jennie’s “SOLO,” PSY’s “New Face” and BIGBANG’s “Flower Road” and BLACKPINK "DU-DDU-DU-DDU" were missing from YG's channels. And V's Singularity was also taken down :( Luckily now all the videos are back up and the views are restored (though at first they were playing really low quality because they had to render again...) JYP's response: “As soon as we found out the problem, we shared it with YouTube and solved it,” a representative from JYP Entertainment told Forbes. “We believed making the videos live again is the most crucial part, so we tried our best to make [them reappear] as soon as possible. While YouTube is still finding out the cause of this problem, it is good news at least that the videos are back right away.” YG, BigHit and Aiplex have not made a comment yet, it seems.
