Henry + Amber's Friendship Receives Good Reactions from His Appearance on 'I Live Alone'

Original Article (News1Korea via Naver): [I Live Alone] Cute, Gangnam Kevin's Free Life

T/N: The show panelist and commenters have been comparing his lifestyle and actions to Kevin from Home Alone. Tbh I don't see it lol 

1. [+1508, -35] When he was facetiming with Amber, I started bursting with laughter ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1141, -36] Amber ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Why are they so funny together ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1041, -28] Amber ranked 2nd in the live search with just her voice during the video chat ㅋ She takes every thing in even though she acts like she's tired of him 

4. [+846, -28] Next time I want to watch Amber, I'm getting curious

5. [+457, -6] Henry seems to get lonely a lot..... He seem like he always want to share something with some ㅎ Amber seems to take in everything he does since they're close friends ㅋ Henry seems to want to get married, I hope he meets a good girl~~~~~~ㅋㅋ For the first time in a while, today's episode was really fun ㅋㅋ

6. [+383, -19] It's been so long since I've laughed this much ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ My heart was rushing when he was singing Uptown Funk but then all of a sudden he began to clean ㅋㅋㅋ I wonder if he was able to catch the pisser (T/N: Someone kept peeing in his parking spot so he set up a small camera to catch the person)

7. [+371, -23] Henry is so innocent, nice, and cute ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I hope he succeeds even more than he has right now

8. [+351, -21] He seriously doesn't seem fake and seems to really be genuine/innocent. He's the complete opposite from people now-a-days who have no talents and only take care of their images. 


I.O.I's Final Concert - Drowning in a Sea of Tears

1. [+2075, -102] Even though I.O.I disbanded, I hope they're all able to return to their agencies and promote actively to present their fans with happiness. I cheer you on from a far. I.O.I fighting!!!!!!

2. [+1605, -123] Kiddos, I hope you all only walk a flower path 
      ↳ Let's stop with the "flower path" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
      ↳ Seriously;; The people who keep using "flower path" are getting fucking annoying ㅋ 
      ↳ That freaking flower path this, flower path that

3. [+1361, -89] Thanks for singing really good songs through out 2016.. Thanks for the hard work. Although it won't happen right away, I know you guys will be able to reunite as 11 members again. I love you I.O.I 

4. [+1151, -76] Thank you, it was really fun.....! 

5. [+1962, -402] Even if they go back into their agency's groups, I think it'll be hard for them to receive the same amount of love and attention they received while they were in I.O.I... To be honest, you really can't predict these kids' futures unless they're from of a big company. But I hope they all continue working hard.. And not be idols that temporarily shined..

6. [+246, -23] Idea of Idol. At least for me, like their group name, they were the idealistic stars. 

7. [+220, -19] It really feels like they're leaving after enjoying the stage for a year.... It's good... No matter where you go, I hope you only make happiness. 

8. [+159, -8] Even though they disband, I hope all 11 of them succeed.

[Instiz] South Korea: a Country that's Obsessed with Celebrities

How is Jo Jung Suk related to an English conversation ad?

How is a pretty celebrity connected to a toothpaste commercial?

How is an native English speaker related to an ad for hotels?

Don't know why Jung Joon Young is being associated with an ad for TOEIC

Why is a Korean-American singer associated with a TOEIC ad? 
They should've used Kim Young Chul instead 
(T/N: Kim Young Chul is known for teaching himself English)

Don't know why an idol is associated with a TOEIC ad

An ahjusshi that seems like he's never done a part-time job before and a popular idol
(T/N: They're models for a part-time job search app lol)

How is a top star related to an ad for a part-time job app?

To the advertisers, the toothpaste's brand model is more important than the ingredients

Not sure if this ad for pads is supposed to be a pad commercial or a makeup commercial

Not sure if this pad ad is supposed to be a commercial for pads or a fashion photoshoot

Not sure if this chicken ad wants me to eat chicken or stare at celebrities

How is Kim Yuna's dancing relevant for an ad that's selling insurance?

Ramen commercial

Not sure if it's supposed to be a celebrity photoshoot or an ad for mobile carriers

Celebrities that appear on ads targeted to new hires

OP then talks about how Korea's lifestyle is constantly connected to celebrities and how scary it is that people find it odd now whenever celebrities don't come out on an ad.

Why do broadcast companies broadcast parties that are specifically for them at the end of the year?


[SPOLERS!!!!!!] [GOBLIN] Why is Grim so Popular?

Original Article (Oh My News via Naver): Why is Grim popular.... Writer Kim Eun Sook has the answer

1. [+6510, -100] I had doubts about whether Lee Dong Wook had the skills to play something other then the supporting role but he knows how to prove people wrong and he's been blessed. 

2. [+5299, -68] Kim Eun Sook wrote the character well, Lee Dong Wook brought the character to life... His gaze is really sad ㅠㅠ also the fact that Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook are close in real life contributes a lot to the Goblin and Grim's chemistry. If you watch the making (aka behind-the-scenes), they're able to comfortably discuss with one another because their improvs saves their acting. 

3. [+4087, -65] (T/N: Commenter talks about how the drama breaks away from the love triangle cliche and that's what's make the sub-leads relationship so refreshing. Also states that they're getting tired of love triangles.)

4. [+3992, -74] (T/N: Giving New Year's blessing lolol)

5. [+2426, -114] The grim reaper can't be the target of the Goblin's resentment, it was the Eunuch's doings. If Kim Shin knew Wang Yeo's true feelings, wouldn't he rather be giving him a huge instead ㅠㅠ

6. [+551, -11] The writer did draw it up well but Lee Dong Wook, whether it is Grim or Wang Yeo (the King), really charmingly expresses the characters well. There's a huge difference between the characters but you're really able to take them in. When he's Grim, the whole world seems cute but when he's the king, the whole world seems sad. 

7. [+558, -14] After a really long time, Lee Dong Wook chose the right project. His acting is surprising and once again, I felt that he was handsome. 

8. [+482, -9] Supposedly this was originally Kim Woo Bin's role but Lee Dong Wook was able to get the role because he followed the Kim Eun Sook onto planes and showed dedication towards the role. He's really cool ㅠㅠ

9. [+459, -15] Grim is almost basically a main role...... Amongst all of Kim Eun Sook's second leads, he's the best..... 


[PANN] Clearing Up AOA's Behavior on Knowing Bros

T/N: Basically, there's been buzz around the portal sites over AOA's appearance on 아는 형님 (Knowing Bros) and people have been criticizing the members, especially Chanmi, because some people thought some of the members were being rude/mean to Seolhyun. 
  • TBH the OP isn't really clearing anything up, they're just listing all the "shit" AOA did towards Chanmi on Knowing Bros
  • I even watched the episode and it didn't seem bad at all. The only things that rubbed me the wrong way was them calling her childhood blanket dirty and ranking her no-makeup face last cause she's darker than them ㅡㅡ

[PANN] TWICE Filmed a CF for Pocari Sweat

OP talks about how fans have been theorizing that they were going to collab with Pocari because they had Pocari PPL in their V-App session and all of a sudden, they went to Australia. 

Pocari always used actresses/actors as their models but the fact that now they're using Twice shows that Twice is really the trend lately. 

Manips ONCE made:

One ONCE made the manip
While the other ONCE went out to promote it 
(T/N: A fan posted the manip onto the official Pocari Facebook page lol)

ONCE - the fandom that lands their idols CF deals


Jung Joon Young Coming Back to 1N2D

1. [+8557, -2214] Daebak!!!!!!!! Finally ㅠㅠㅠ Been waiting for you Jung Joon Young

2. [+6468, -1837] Welcome back maknae ㅠㅠㅠ

3. [+5752, -1786] Joon Young-ah welcome back we've been waiting 

4. [+5358, -1682] Finally, we can see the maknae. Ah the happy virus is flooding in ㅎㅎㅎ 1N2D fighting!

5. [+5004, -1578] There needs to be a maknae character in order for chemistry to exist. Looking forward to next week 

Original Article (TV Report via Naver): "No one knew" - Jung Joon Young's 007esque return to 1N2D
1. [+649, -80] Well.... The 15th is exactly next week.... 1N2D doesn't seem to keep secrets*** (T/N: Not sure what this means....). Anyways it's good that Jung Joon Young is coming back~~!!

2. [+596, -76] Let's sue the people who are still going around and spreading lies by saying he filmed a hidden sex cam vid

3.  [+483, -66] Please stop the false reports ㅇㅇ He never filmed a sex video nor did he film a hidden one. People need to know the facts. 

4. [+355, -46] I guess the haters want to be charged. They're probably not going to just let the hateful comments go. They should really be more careful about what they say~~

5. [+233, -27] So that's what happened behind the scenes. ㅋ Ah~ Already looking forward to an 1N2D with Jung Joon Young

6. [+92, -14] Jung Joon Young is a sad case... No video existed but his ex sued him, the journalists that wrote articles should reflect.... Jung Joon Young should be more picky about the girls he dates in the future...
