Poor conditions found in '2018 IAC' filming leading to idol injuries



Article: Gym floor covered in sheets? The reason '2018 IAC' has more injuries

Source: Sports Kyunghyang via Nate

1. [+921, -28] "Who would watch this" <- show is always at the top of the holiday viewer ratings. "Why do they always bother holding it" <- fans complain about the treatment of idols but still line up to sit and watch. Fandoms need to start a union and either agree on not attending to empty out the stadium or something if they have a real problem with it.

2. [+761, -29] At this point, agencies need to start boycotting.... this is forced labor. Who even came up with the idea of making up a track race like that?

3. [+591, -18] It's because people still watch the show even when the conditions suck like this... imagine if all the fans boycotted it, do you think MBC would do it again?

4. [+25, -3] Stupid fangirls are always whining about the show and yet line up to fill the stadium ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+20, -2] The show would be gone by now if it was really unpopular... but it keeps going because you all keep watching ^^

6. [+20, -5] Stupid fangirls are so dumb that you can never expect logic from them. They always whine about taking the show off air every year and yet they keep lining up to raise the viewer ratings ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+10, -0] So tired of these idols

8. [+7, -2] Shouldn't they have rented a building that had an actual track course intead of making one themselves?

'Produce 48' begins meetings with Korean and Japanese trainees for new season


Article: [Exclusive] 'Produce 48' is back to all girls... meetings begin with Korean and Japanese trainees

Source: Ilgan Sports via Nate

1. [+241, -8] People are going to comment "why bother??" and still end up watching it

2. [+173, -4] Everyone was so sure that the all boys version would fail -> Wanna One ended up being the first 21C group to hit million seller status with their debut album. I bet you everyone who's going to call this new season boring are going to be the same ones who are like "daisuki I love Japanese girls" later on

3. [+158, -5] Hate on the show all you want, you're all going to end up watching it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ this show is basically the audition version of 'IAC' ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+8, -3] Their plan is so obvious ㅋㅋ They saw how successful Twice is so they're trying to make the members comprised of Korean and Japanese ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+5, -3] Japanese idols aren't that talented, I doubt they'd stand a chance against Korean trainees. Most of AKB go on to shoot AVs, something that would be unfathomable in our country.

1. [+2,649, -102] Enough...

2. [+1,984, -75] Enough

3. [+1,494, -76] Sigh... aren't people sick of these shows..

4. [+1,049, -62] Tsk tsk

5. [+241, -26] The Japanese trainees are so behind in visuals and skills... do we really need to watch them on Korean TV?

6. [+183, -11] Do they not see how abysmal the viewer ratins for 'Mix Nine' and 'The Unit' are right now..

7. [+166, -21] But remember how everyone didn't want the male season but look how successful they are now... you can't tell with these shows

8. [+150, -10] Adding in Japanese trainees is going to drop the quality of the show

Son Naeun finally lands her long awaited 'Adidas' modeling contract


Article: Son Naeun sells out leggings and lands a model contract

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+215, -19] It took longer than I thought for Adidas to pick her up as a model. It's been so long since she sold out their leggings. It's good that they cast her now since hearing her name immediately makes me think of Adidas.

2. [+169, -16] Not sure if this was what she was going for all along but at least she finally landed the contract ㅋㅋㅋ I'm sure Adidas thought she was a great fit too

3. [+22, -6] A positive result to all that media play

4. [+21, -24] Adidas took way too long ㅋㅋㅋ she's the original star that helped sell out their leggings. Her body is so feminine and pretty ㅠㅠ congratulations

5. [+19, -9] She still looks like a squid next to any actress

6. [+19, -22] I actually don't think she's that great of a leggings model... her body doesn't have any volume and there are a ton of female celebrities with great bodies already. There are even fitness stars who specialize in yoga???

7. [+13, -7] She's been chasing that contract so hard she finally got it ^^

8. [+9, -4] All that money spent on media play, I guess Adidas finally felt bad for her

9. [+4, -1] Her face looks like a flat pancake, she looks so ugly in dramas

10. [+4, -7] I always thought of Son Naeun when I saw Adidas leggings even when she wasn't a model for them

North Korean girl group leader Hyon Song Wol joins talks for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics





Article: Hyon Song Wol, leader of 'North Korean girl group', arrives with strong gaze and smile

Source: Chosun Ilbo via Nate [English article here]

1. [+137, -5] She looks like an ajumma ㅋㅋㅋ how is she a girl group ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+109, -6] She looks tackier than any ajumma living in our countryside and yet she's a girl group ㅋㅋㅋ I bet Jong Un would cream his pants if he saw a South Korean girl group ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+42, -3] They say that being fat is a sign of beauty for impoverished countries ㅋㅋㅋ can't believe our beauty standards are this different ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+9, -0] She looks like a thick toad...

5. [+9, -1] She must've served Jong Un well for her to reach such a position ㅋㅋ

6. [+7, -0] Jong Un has quite low standards in women... sigh, she's still very strong to be able to stomach him

7. [+4, -0] Look at how chubby she is... she's like the female version of Kim Jong Un. Girl group? ㅋㅋ

Taeyang purchases a home worth 4.25 billion won, presumably his newlywed home


Article: Taeyang buys a home worth 4.25 billion won... predicted to be newlywed home for Min Hyo Rin

Source: Herald Pop via Nate

1. [+432, -16] Sigh, money that the rest of us could never make even if we started working from generations ahead ㅠ so jealous

2. [+405, -13] I wonder what a house worth 4.25 billion won even looks like. A commoner like me couldn't even imagine it.

3. [+41, -1] While your parents were getting yelled at by their bosses and other customers and dunking their hands in cold water to make money to raise you, educate you, feed you, and clothe you, you all were spending all your money on people like him so that he can buy his own woman a home worth 4.2 billion won. Stop chasing all these celebrities around while screaming at the top of your lungs and wake up. These guys are buying their parents homes out of the money made from the suffering of your own parents.

4. [+38, -2] Well, it's money that he made but... a 4.2 billion won newlywed home... I guess it really is pointless to ever worry about a celebrity

5. [+30, -1] He makes 50.6 billion won a year??? Wow, I look up to anyone who makes even half a million a year... what a fantasy world, doesn't even feel like they live in our world

6. [+24, -3] No matter how much you fans shower them with gifts and money, these guys are all going to marry other prettier women. Stop wasting your time following them around and spend that money and time on improving your own skin and studying. These clowns don't even care an ounce for you.

7. [+24, -4] Stupid fangirls, listen up... (especially those of you who spend your money on them)... the oppas that you're all fangirling over now do think of you preciously because you're their ATM. They need you in order to fund all the seducing they're going to have to do for their future wife (who will probably be a much younger prettier woman who's either a doctor or a lawyer or even a mixed race model) ㅋㅋ so of course you're important to them. But keep in mind that in many years from now when you're stuck paying back student loans and your parents don't have a retirement plan, your oppas will be 30-40 years old living in luxury homes with their hottie wife w2ho is 20 years younger than them while their own babies attend top tier luxury pre schools ^^

8. [+17, -1] I realized something today... I came into a lump sum of money and booked a vacation in a nice villa but... no matter how nice of a place I'm at, it doesn't matter if it's not with someone I can share this happiness with. Money is important but let's all be grateful for the people we love ㅠㅠ don't let articles like this make you feel bad, just consider these people a part of another alien world and keep trucking on with our own lives...
