1. Girls' Generation in crisis
 The revelation Monday night that three members of Girls‘ Generation are leaving their agency raises questions about the group‘s future: Will the group weather the storm intact or will it be the final straw for this legendary brand?
*revelation: 폭로된 사실, 드러냄
*raise question: 의문을 제기하다
*weather the storm: 고비를 넘기다
*final straw: 최후의 결정타 (더 이상 견딜 수 없는 한계)
 With three of its members venturing into solo careers -- one of them leaving Korea -- speculations have been rising that their departure will soon lead to the group’s disbandment. Girls’ Generation may manage to stay intact from the blow, but whether the five-member structure will hold as much momentum as before also remains a question. Other popular girl groups such as Wonder Girls and Sistar broke up entirely after having lost its members or seeing some members choose a solo career over group activities.
*venture: 모험, (위험을 무릅쓰고) ~을 하다
*momentum: 가속도 탄력
 However, it is too early to make any assumptions about the group’s future, as another scenario in which the members can gather in groups or as a whole for project activities is still possible, following in the footsteps of long-running K-pop acts such as Shinhwa and g.o.d.

2. Kim Jong-un’s estranged nephew tired of life on the run: report

 Kim Han-sol, along with his mother Ri Hye-kyong and his 19-year-old sister Kim Sol-hui, has been on-the-run from the North Korean regime after his father, Kim Jong-nam, was killed at a Malaysian airport in February. Kim Jong-nam, who was the half brother of North Korea’s current strongman was murdered with the banned VX nerve agent in broad daylight, in what appears to be an assassination plotted by Kim Jong-un.

 The trio’s current whereabouts are unknown, although the respective governments of the Netherlands, China, the United States, and a fourth unnamed nation had offered help to them, according to Cheollima Civil Defense, an organization keeping the family under Pyongyang’s radar. The group is believed to be formed of North Korean dissidents.
