Tiffany apologizes a second time for her scandal


Article: 'Japanese confederate flag controversy' Tiffany apologizes again, "I apologize for deeply hurting and disappointing you on that day"

Source: Herald Pop via Nate

1. [+645, -67] Only after testing the public's reaction does she come out with another apology after realizing that public sentiment got worse after her initial one ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+586, -61] Not once but twice over the course of two days. Can't tell if she's dumb or it was on purpose;;

3. [+531, -62] She's really trying hard, isn't she

4. [+89, -5] Who wrote this for her? It wasn't that long ago that the members were joking around because she didn't know Korean that well. The text feels too strange to say that Tiffany wrote it herself.

5. [+75, -19] Talk about a slow apology... I bet she didn't expect to get this much hate so she realized that she had to apologize again or else she won't be able to promote in Korea for real.

6. [+73, -16] I can hear the gears in her head turning, this stupid b*tch is taking us for pigs

7. [+54, -7] I bet she was just going to let this settle down but now that the scandal keeps getting bigger, she's busy trying to put the fire out. From what I've normally seen of her writing style, I know that she isn't capable of writing like this ^^;; but whether this apology was written for her or not, it's already too late.

8. [+54, -15] Don't make excuses you airheaded b*tch, just go back to your country

9. [+49, -2] Yeah, I bet this was written for her

10. [+48, -3] As expected, I knew she'd go with the "I didn't know ㅠㅠ" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ You've been working in Korea for 10 years and saw many of your peers lose their careers over this controversy and you didn't know? Are you joking?

1. [+8,170, -326] In our world today, ignorance is crime. Study up on your history.

2. [+7,239, -340] I do think that someone helped her write this apology considering that it requires a higher understanding of the language but if she did genuinely write this up with her own hands, then I hope she realizes what this apology means this time...

3. [+5,879, -213] Every country has an issue that their people are sensitive about. As they say, when in Rome, do as the Romans do. SM needs to focus more on history lessons within their company.

4. [+5,377, -220] I really hope she's properly reflecting over this. She should have a basic sense of respect and knowledge about the country she's working in.

5. [+3,462, -168] Comfort women are still fighting to this day

6. [+1,1191, -71] Who's the idiot who even made that filter

7. [+1,145, -69] Whether you hate it or not, someone overseas considers you a face of Korea. Please act according to the weight that such a status carries.

8. [+1,154, -92] It's good that she apologized again, but it's still not something to just pass over. Reflect.

9. [+1,222, -115] You need to reflect more. Don't think that it's over because you apologized and people will eventually forget. You'll be in big trouble if you think that way. Please act thoughtfully...

10. [+1,037, -74] Don't even know why SM scheduled a concert in Japan the day before liberation day, sigh.

TV: 'Uncontrollably Fond' drops in viewer ratings


Article: 'Uncontrollably' continues to fall without wings, lowest viewer ratings

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+365, -21] The plot is just too random... even Kim Woo Bin and Suzy can't save this drama. They're just dragging it out, as if they're purposely trying to piss off the viewers as much as possible..

2. [+330, -62] Probably one of the reasons why pre-producing dramas is bad. It's hot as hell outside but it's snowing in the drama and all the characters are wrapped up in jackets. Furthermore, the producers can't read viewer comments and respond to feedback.

3. [+308, -17] The drama itself is so gloomy. Kim Woo Bin and Suzy's visuals are the life support of this drama.

4. [+143, -70] I saw the first few minutes of the first episode and said that this would be a flop and there you go, it's a flop

5. [+80, -8] The viewer ratings are even where they are now because of Kim Woo Bin and Suzy... the drama itself is torture for the characters.

Article: 'Uncontrollably Fond' Kim Woo Bin suffers amnesia, 'viewers' complain

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+289, -3] As if the previous episodes weren't frustrating enough, now it's just getting worse... sigh...

2. [+228, -7] The scriptwriter has to be kidding me... I'm going to choke on my food over how frustrating this drama is

3. [+186, -5] Making him get amnesia really was too much

4. [+39, -4] The scriptwriter and producer better be grateful to the cast..

5. [+35, -4] I bet even the cast is frustrated having to act this plot out

6. [+28, -1] Sigh... I'm seriously forcing myself to watch this for Suzy's sake but the story is seriously so bad.

7. [+27, -1] It's the same plot as 'I'm Sorry I Love You', your typical Lee Kyung Hee sciprtwriter style. Her plots are all the same... love, terminal illness, death, sad ending.

8. [+22, -0] This drama is so stupid, I'm embarrassed for them actually

Article: 'W' takes #1 in viewer ratings... 'Uncontrollably' drops to 3rd

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+213, -9] 'Uncontrollably' is too outdated... amnesia, are you serious? What a waste of the cast ㅠㅠ

2. [+169, -10] I heard once you bring out amnesia, it means the scriptwriter has run out of ideas...

3. [+134, -64] I still remember the public saying they would refuse to watch anything Han Hyo Joo was in ㅋㅋㅋ a bunch of hypocrites

4. [+32, -27] 'W' is an awesome drama, one we'll never see the likes of again, and 'Jealousy' is fun too. 'Uncontrollably' is just a failure.

5. [+17, -5] Anyone can tell that 'Uncontrollably' is going to be a sad ending, who's going to want to sit through that? So boring

NCT Dream debuts with 'Chewing Gum'





Article: NCT Dream, "Grateful to get to debut under SM... we will work hard"

Source: OSEN via Naver

1. [+301, -59] They're just punching them straight out of the factory now... SM has just turned into a complete idol factory

2. [+175, -14] If they keep putting out these units, they're only going to end up getting individual fans... ㅠㅠ

3. [+128, -18] It's a good system but from the perspective of the fans, it's a bit of an odd feeling... ㅜㅜ and I wonder if Haechan and Mark weren't on 'Weekly Idol' because of Dream promos

4. [+99, -14] What we were afraid of has become reality

5. [+84, -12] They really look young this time..

6. [+26, -1] SM must really love Mark, they debuted him 3 times in a year...

7. [+34, -8] Aren't they in junior high to high school?? The members being young isn't even that weird since Sohee, Sunmi, and Hyuna debuted when they were in junior high too;;

8. [+13, -2] Mark's a pro-debuter now ㅋㅋㅋ but I'm sure SM recognizes that he has many different charms to him~ fighting to NCT Dream~

9. [+15, -4] Their song really is so cute though ㅋ haven't heard such a cute song in a while

10. [+22, -6] Their song's good, chewchewchewchewing gum. SM has a rhyme and reason for everything.

Hwayoung earns a passing grade on her transition from idol to actress


Article: 'Youth Generation' Ryu Hwayoung, forgets T-ara... the birth of a real actress

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+669, -35] She's actually good

2. [+629, -67] So pretty. Forget about that low class T-ara group and continue soaring forward. T-ara, those ba$tards.

3. [+539, -35] Really enjoying her drama ㅋㅋ She pulls off her character perfectly... fighting ^^

4. [+49, -3] See, you gotta be like her and start acting from smaller roles up so that there are no awkward gaps in your acting. But look at the current idols, lead roles right off the bat ㅋㅋㅋ and after that drama flops??? They land another lead role ㅋㅋㅋㅋ and once their careers get trashed in Korea, they head over to Japan or China ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+49, -3] She's good at acting and has an amazing body

6. [+46, -2] Surprised at how good she is, I think she has a lot of growth potential to be a good actor

7. [+42, -3] She's actually been in a lot of supporting roles ㅋㅋ She's good, barely feels like an idol and she matches roles like this well too

8. [+40, -2] She could probably start being called an actor now

1. [+14,678, -622] She has a good tone for acting, it's almost like she was always an actor. Get rid of T-ara and just call yourself 'actress Ryu Hwayoung' because it fits her more now.

2. [+10,422, -538] I actually never noticed her when she was in T-ara but her acting now is great. Ryu Hwayoung, do well!

3. [+9,729, -513] Good actor. Her body looks very western too, it's nice.

4. [+7,609, -368] She has a face for acting. There are a lot of girl groups who are considered pretty and get into acting but still show a gap next to other actors.

5. [+1,672, -85] Surprised at how natural her acting is. Maybe because of the aura she gives off but her face is a good fit for acting too.

6. [+1,592, -125] Leaving T-ara was the best decision she could've made! Just slowly take each step at a time now.. fighting ^^

7. [+1,427, -93] Her acting is clean, nothing to criticize here. She's not afraid to let go and get dirty either. I'll reserve judgment until she has more dramas under her belt but she's good in this one~!

SPICA holds 'Secret Time' comeback showcase




Article: SPICA, "We're an unpopular group? It'll get better as we keep walking our own path"

Source: Chosun Ilbo via Naver

1. [+956, -30] Such a talented group ㅜ Be successful

2. [+562, -27] Release another song like 'Tonight' and hit daebak!

3. [+466, -38] No comments here. SPICA's a talented girl group and I still listen to 'Tonight'. Fighting!

4. [+371, -22] One of the groups that I genuinely wish the best for!! Great singers, pretty, and hard working ㅎㅎ I know they'll make it one day!

5. [+360, -24] They have great songs ㅠㅠ

6. [+49, -4] They really aren't popular enough for how talented they are, I wish them the best

7. [+43, -2] Nowadays it's better to get on TV more and get popular for your charms or personalities than songs... I think it'll be hard for them to grow a fanbase from their songs alone~~

8. [+48, -4] What a shame because they have amazing vocal talent

9. [+49, -5] They're as talented as Mamamoo but the members don't really show their charms ㅠㅠ For an idol group, charms are just as important as talent... ㅠㅠ Well, find strength
