Maserati rep clarifies Leeteuk's new car post

Article: Leeteuk's 200 million won sports car... how did he really get it?

Leeteuk had made his post sound like the car was gifted to him but a Maserati rep revealed, "Leeteuk has always thought of the Gran Turismo as his 'dream car' and has contacted our company for a long time about taking it for a test run. He really wanted to ride the car so we specially loaned it to him for a longer period than normal. We have heard that he is interested in purchasing it for himself. Other clients are able to take our cars for a test drive for under a day."

1. [+334, -15] I mean, isn't he rich enough to buy one, why is he begging..?

2. [+314, -12] So it wasn't a gift... but he wrote his post like it was... that shows his character.

3. [+262, -11] Of all celebrities, it's Leeteuk who isn't even a top star, so I doubt it'll do much in raising the brand's status ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+43, -0] So he begged like a beggar for it

5. [+41, -0] He's damn good at begging ㅋㅋ

6. [+40, -0] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ What the, I thought they sponsored it to him like a gift ㅋㅋㅋ but they're just letting him borrow it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I guess even Maserati realized that it was tainting their image so they put out an article saying they're just letting him borrow it ㅋㅋㅋ so hilarious ㅋㅋㅋㅋ makes him look so cheap

7. [+35, -1] This situation is so damn hilarious ㅋㅋㅋㅋ so Leeteuk tried to leverage his status as a celebrity by whining to Maserati about wanting their car. They know he's not a top star so they just let him take one for a ride instead of outright giving it to him. Then they saw Leeteuk lying on SNS like he got it gifted to him so Maserati was like "nope" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+35, -0] Why's he going around begging when he's rich enough to buy one

9. [+21, -0] Had no idea that Maserati would blow his cover like that ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+18, -1] Agh ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I feel bad for him.......

11. [+13, -0] So it wasn't even a gift ㅋ he kept asking for a ride and they were like fine

12. [+8, -0] He begged for it... why couldn't he just ride a car he can afford, why go through all that begging just to ride this one


Big Hit records their best financial year to date

Article: [Official] "Best numbers since birth of company" BTS agency Big Hit earns 92.4 billion won in sales for 2017

1. [+642, -33] Daebak, BTS has basically become a brand of their own... congratulations. This nuna fan genuinely supports you.

2. [+525, -29] Amazing ㅎㅎ let's keep it up!!

3. [+496, -30] Really amazing ㅎㅎ I have a feeling this year is going to be even more daebak. Let's keep going.

4. [+43, -0] Their company is continuing to grow and CEO Bang Shi Hyuk has a batting eye who knows what he's doing and our boys have the wings to reach places that no one has gone before. All my support for Big Hit and BTS.

5. [+38, -0] I remember reading in another article that a prominent investor reached out to Bang Shi Hyuk before BTS' debut with interest in investing in his company. The reason was that Bang Shi Hyuk had a reputation in the industry for being super clean with his finances. That investor earned back a dozen times more than he invested. That's how amazing Bang Shi Hyuk is, and I know he's going to take BTS down a strong path...

6. [+37, -0] Us fans are ready to spend our money so keep it going ㅋㅋㅋ BTS, Bang PD, Big Hit, and all the staff, fighting to everyone, let's take it all this year too!!!

7. [+35, -0] All it takes is one well produced group to hit jackpot

8. [+29, -0] They still don't have a building of their own because they'd rather invest that money in their own artists. They really spare nothing when it comes to investing in BTS and BTS repays that by earning double and triple that!

9. [+27, -0] They're going to do doubly well this year, that was just a warm up~~

10. [+26, -1] Just put out an album, we'll handle the rest~~~~~~ let's keep it going this year

Article: Busker Busker's 'Cherry Blossom Ending' is back on the daily charts... 'spring pension' has begun

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+793, -28] I always think "Ugh!!! so tired of it!!!" but when I actually hear it again, my heart flutters so damn hard ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ!!!! The breeze of the spring air~~~

2. [+735, -23] It doesn't feel like spring until you hear this song ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+600, -22] The breeze of the spring air~ yup, it's not spring until you hear this

4. [+43, -0] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Insane... ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ There is no other song that comes back year after year ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ it'll be a song that every generation knows down the line

5. [+41, -0] It's been years and it doesn't sound tacky at all

6. [+16, -0] Like the best reply says... you always think you'd be sick of it but when you hear it on the streets, you feel your heart flutter... what a great song

7. [+15, -0] Hearing this song with great weather makes you feel sooo~~~~~~~ good ㅎㅎ It plays often on the radio but I love it each time... ♡

8. [+12, -0] It'd probably feel so good to drive down a street with cherry blossoms in bloom and your windows down and this song playing ㅠㅠㅠㅠ


Yang Hyun Suk offers 3 year contracts for 'Mix Nine' debut to the dismay of agencies

Article: [Exclusive] Yang Hyun Suk offers '3 year contract' for Mix Nine's debut team... some agencies in 'opposition'

Source: Sports Seoul via Nate

1. [+249, -12] He's probably offering terms that he knows they're not going to want so he can just be like "leave if you don't want to take it~~~~~" and then finally get rid of the team altogether when no one agrees

2. [+164, -11] That's pretty bad. It's not like he set these terms at the start of 'Mix Nine'... it's unfair to pick all the members and then suddenly be like "oh yeah, it's going to be 3 years"... no one wants to work like that

3. [+94, -3] With how poorly the show did, it's clear that they're not looking to invest much in the idols. YG knows they're not going to get much out of the group in just 1-2 years so they need at least 3 years but why would their agencies agree to that? In 3 years, all their fame will be used up and people won't care anymore.

4. [+13, -3] Isn't 3 years okay? It's not like these kids have anywhere else to go. Their agencies aren't taking care of them... at least 3 years in YG will get them enough money for an apartment of their own once they're done.

5. [+12, -2] It's obvious YG's just trying to throw them out at this point with how poorly the show did ㅋㅋ

6. [+9, -1] 3 years? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Is he nuts? Does he not plan to debut his own groups in that time?

7. [+9, -0] It was easy for 'Produce 101' to debut because they already had fandoms... but 'Mix Nine' suffered abysmal viewer ratings and has no fandoms as a result of that. If they debut this group, they're going to fail miserably.

8. [+8, -1] Is he crazy? He's basically telling the other agencies that he's taking their trainees. Promoting for 3 years will mean they would've built up a fandom of their own by then... what does he expect their own agencies to do with that?


Source: Naver

1. [+104, -26] Not sure why some comments are defending him unless you work for YG; The original promise was that the debut team would promote for 7 months. It's unfair for YG to change his mind and turn it into a 3 year contract. YG's just doing this because he wants the group to disband due to conflicting opinions. There's no way their agencies would agree to a 3 year contract unless they were insane. YG's totally playing the thug here... These members all joined the show under the original promise of a short promo period.

2. [+88, -17] Can he just admit that he doesn't want to debut them ㅋㅋ it's unfair that he's changing his mind. He knows that he's going to suffer a loss on them and doesn't want to invest anything so he's just media playing to distract the hate on him.

3. [+69, -10] ㅋㅋㅋ He's basically beating around the bush saying he doesn't want to debut them

4. [+69, -12] I expect an article soon saying the debut has been canceled. Yang Hyun Suk will say something like "we tried our best but negotiations couldn't reach a compromise"... The fact that he's offering a 3 year contract at all means he wants this to fail

5. [+58, -10] He's just being sly to lessen the hate against him. What agency would want their artist tied to another agency for 3 years? It's not like YG's super quick with their p[lans either ㅋㅋㅋ Just stick with the original 7 months

6. [+40, -6] Yup, we'll hear in a few months that all of the agencies rejected his offer so he can't debut the group... I feel bad for the kids who had to suffer through months of difficult missions...

7. [+42, -9] 3 years??? Is he insane? As if he's going to support kids from another agency properly for 3 whole years... He barely keeps comeback dates for his own kids... ridiculous


Historical drama productions on halt for the rest of the year due to #metoo

Article: "No more traditional dramas until the year-end" Broadcast industry faces changes with the #metoo movement

Source: Ilgan Sports via Nate

1. [+312, -17] The fact that we no longer have actors eligible for traditional dramas because of the #metoo movement... does that really mean we have no clean veteran actors at all? Isn't that just really sad and pathetic?

2. [+258, -10] What have all the veteran actors been doing this whole time;;

3. [+223, -13] They've taken more than they deserved. Let's take this as an opportunity to slowly rebuild everything from the bottom up.

4. [+11, -0] The drama producers are basically saying that there's no way they can check all the veteran actors to see if they're clean so they're not going to produce any dramas for the time being... they're not saying all of the veteran actors are dirty.

5. [+11, -0] We still have a ton like Lee Soon Jae, Choi Soo Jong, Yoo Dong Geun, Ahn Jae Mo, Lee Duk Hwa, etc.

6. [+5, -1] Must mean that there's a lot of trash. Let's clean them all out now.

7. [+5, -0] Like the producers are saying, there's no way we can vet everyone's private lives so it's better to be careful than sorry

8. [+3, -4] Yeah, I have no problem not watching any dramas until we clean up all the trash for good...
