Song Seung Heon x Go Ara confirmed for OCN's new Grim Reaper drama 'Black'

1. [+1482, -71] Why does Song Seung Heon always star in projects where his costar doesn't match him? Last time he starred with an actress that looked like his mom and this time he's going to be starring in a drama with an actress that looks like she can be his daughter. Let's cast someone that matches him or someone who's only a little bit younger. 
↪ [+174, -52] Why does the standards have to be based on Song Seung Heon though? Is he good at acting, what's so outstanding? It'll take less time looking for an actor that goes well with Go Ara. 
↪ [+54, -18] Lee Yeon Hee matches him

2. [+1204, -115] So who's gonna be the one acting?

3. [+913, -56] They really don't match......

4. [+737, -50] These two don't match

5. [+240, -11] What's up with the casting nowadays? Why are there so many uncle-niece, aunt-nephew concepts? Cast the ages appropriately, it's hard to focus. 

6. [+231, -27] Will the supporting cast do all the acting? 

7. [+188, -21] Wow.... what's up with the casting....


Korean moviegoers make an effort to go and watch 'Okja'

  • A lot of the cinema megachains in Korea (e.g. CGV, Exhibitor Lotte Cinema) are boycotting Okja so they're not screening them. Their reason was that this Netflix film will "ruin" Korea's film industry. Smaller theaters are screening the film and the owners talk about how there's an increase in visitors at their theaters now. In Seoul, only 12 theaters are screening Okja.  

1. [+471, -20] Okja: You're unaware that time is flying by. Real (t/n: Kim Soo Hyun, Sulli movie): You're aware time is passing by. 

2. [+325, -18] Personally, I thought the movie was entertaining. I took the intercity bus to go watch it and don't think I wasted any money. 

3. [+259, -7] They talk shit even if you make a film, they talk shit even if you don't. They talk shit if you release the film, they talk shit even if you don't release it. 

4. [+239, -10] I want to watch it on the big screen too but there's no theater near me that's screening it!! ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

5. [+247, -12] I came back from watching the early morning screening at Daehan Theater 
ㅇㅅㅇ This movie is a small capitalist movie that makes their actors' comedic acting stand out. It also has messages that recommend vegetarianism.

6. [+89, -5] CGV, Lotte Cinema, Megabox is seriously despicable. Transformers? Real? Why are you trying to monopolize movies that don't even seem like movies? Is this really a cultural advanced country?

7. [+48, -5] I watched it on Netflix at 7AM. You're really not going to regret watching this. 


'The Bride of Habaek' gets compared to 'Goblin'

  • A journalist asked him a question about his character's way of talking being similar to Gong Yoo's character in Goblin. In reference to that question, Nam Joo Hyuk said that he didn't separately refer back to Gong Yoo's character but that while reading the script, the way he spoke, came out naturally. 
1. [+123, -22] But he has a complete different image compared to Gong Yoo?!?! ㅎㅎ You're cool~

2. [+91, -17] His proportions are damn nice

3. [+80, -15] Nam Joo Hyuk is freaking handsome, freaking cool, so full of charms ㅠㅠ 

4. [+93, -20] He's so freaking handsome, look at those proportions 

5. [+61, -12] The lineup is good, looking forward to this 

6. [+31, -4] You? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ His self-diss is cute 

7. [+28, -10] We'll know after watching the first episode

Original Source (Joy News 24 via Naver): "Different from 'Goblin'."...Will the God Romance work with 'The Bride of Habaek? 

1. [+6322, -574] You can't compare this with Gongkkaebi. 

2. [+5742, -569] Mhmm, must be talking about difference in acting skills with Goblin ㅋ (t/n: commenter compared the difference of levels in acting skills as heaven and earth) 

3. [+4460, -577] If it's fun, you'll end up watching it, but I hate how they keep media-playing by bringing up Goblin! Also Nam Joo Hyuk and Gongkkaebi are on different levels, stop comparing them! 

4. [+3625, -411] Can they stop comparing it to Goblin and just come out with a good drama?

5. [+1351, -23] Why is Lim Ju Hwan always playing the second male lead... 

6. [+779, -14] Wowww Lim Ju Hwan

7. [+709, -24] Let's watch it first before talking shit

Wanna One reveals individual profile pictures

Original Source (이데일리 - EDaily via Daum): 'Explosion of Coolness'..Wanna One reveals 11 individual profile pictures 

1. [+110, -3] Was that the best they can do with Kang Daniel's pictures? 

2. [+68, -5] Why does it seem like the pictures didn't come out well..

3. [+63, -3] Why... does... it... all... look... like... their... pictures... didn't... come... out... nicely... Either way, Wanna One hwaiting.

4. [+34, -1] What is this? Their looks got ruined

5. [+31, -4] Kang Daniel's hairstyle... is lacking something... ㅡ..ㅡ What a shame... There's something lacking with the cool, sexy image.. Daniel hwaiting~ ♡

6. [+30, -3] Ong Seong Woo, Hwang Minhyun is my style. Super handsome 

7. [+31, -1] Change the photographer, retake the pictures. They couldn't save any of the kids' charms. With one look, you can tell how photogenic Ong Seong Woo is but what is up with that flat face-looking picture?

Section TV under fire for leaking Song Hye Kyo's private Instagram account

  • The show's reps apologized to the viewers for causing any inconvenience with their coverage of Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki's dating rumors. 
  • They did a follow-up and went to the AirBnB Song Hye Kyo was staying in. Began interviewing Bali locals that interacted with the two. 
  • The show's reps kind of defended their actions by saying they didn't film the two unknowingly nor did they take any paparazzi pics but they took pics of the location with a cellphone, they had their affiliate go to Bali to "fact check" the rumors that were started by the Chinese journalists and news outlets. 
  • Said that they are a celebrity news program and it's their job to fact check things that people are interested in. They apologized for making the viewers uncomfortable and pledged to be a better Section TV. 
1. [+3700, -127] So you think it's excusable and follows journalistic integrity to reveal a private account just because the person is a celebrity? Don't want to watch this trashy show. 

2. [+3533, -119] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Hilarious, start apologizing for leaking Song Hye Kyo's private Instagram instead of changing the topic

3. [+2935, -114] Let's cancel this show... I don't even know why we need celebrity news shows.. ㅜ 

4. [+2421, -95] Whether they're dating or not, leave them alone. What are you doing following them around while they're vacationing... Seriously what a mess

5. [+1990, -74] They seem to have already caused so much damage, how about they just stop doing the show

6. [+544, -16] The Instagram account they showed on the show was Song Hye Kyo's private account. She created a separate account in order to communicate with her fans. Don't you think it's a bit too much to leak a person's private account during the broadcast? Did a friend leak it? If it's a friend that leaked it then you should cut ties with that person and if they hacked your account, you should sue Section TV. 

7. [+458, -10] They're glossing it over by saying they were fact checking but at the end, they were still filming secretlyㅋㅋ

8. [+410, -11] You were fact checking but you gathered your material by interviewing the locals with a smartphone? MB(astards)C 

9. [+407, -15] I don't think Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo are ever going to come out on Section TV ever again 

1. [+379, -5] Instead of apologizing to the viewers first, don't you think it's right to apologize Song Hye Kyo first, the person actually involved? The so-called standards of broadcasters...

2. [+303, -4] They apologized for everything except for leaking her private account

3. [+291, -4] It's better off to not watch Section TV entirely. Once their ratings go down, the show will naturally disappear. You should be apologizing to Song Hye Kyo, why are you apologizing to the viewers you idiots. 

4. [+248, -3] How can they not apologize after leaking a person's private account? Seriously, they're at the height of shamelessness. The only solution is to cancel this show. 

5. [+229, -0] Section TV, don't go overboard. 


[PHOTOSHOOT] G-Dragon looks back at his career for ELLE Korea

Original Source (Sports DongA via Nate): G-Dragon, "I've been in this industry for 24 years, I've trained my mentality." (more pics at the source)
  • Talks about the differences between G-Dragon and Kwon Jiyong
  • "G-Dragon came to existence starting from 2006 but I've lived as G-Dragon since I was 13 and have been active in this industry since I was 6 years old. I've been in this industry for 24 years." 
  • Talks about how his physical condition isn't what it used to be but his mentality is trained/prepared.

1. [+471, -75] That's something to brag about you 🐕🐦 (t/n: dog (개-gae) + bird (새 - sae) ➝ they're calling him a bitch)

2. [+451, -63] I see..... So you did drugs because your mentality was trained....

3. [+399, -66] Next marijuana 

4. [+30, -4] In other words: "No matter how much you guys talk shit, I still have a lot of money~ Whatever~ I don't even care ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ You guys keep hating while I make money ㅋ" 

5. [+28, -10] Trained with marijuana 


BTS to collab with Seo Taiji

Original Source (Sports Chosun via Naver): Seo Taiji x BTS, coming together as 'Seo Taiji and Boys'

1. [+1398, -109] Not sure what sound Seo Taiji and BTS will remake but as stated in the article, looking forward to two legends coming together
↪ [+22, -65] Two icons...?

2. [+1055, -92] BTS hwaiting!!! This is daebak!!!

3. [+1028, -88] The greatest collab... Really looking forward to it!

4. [+1045, -168] The General hasn't made any mistakes in his choices yet (t/n: Seo Taiji's nickname is 'The General')
 [+97, -51] Cringe cringe...
 [+46, -24] Going a bit too far by calling a person who didn't even serve a "general." 

5. [+954, -178] Seo Taiji... really... is... amazing... Seems like he was born to be a musician.

6. [+256, -21] My BTS-liking niece and the Seo Taiji-liking me (aunt) can go watch them together ㅎㅎ I like things like this 

7. [+204, -10] Really looking forward to it since they're gonna perform on stage together! 


GFriend to make a comeback in July

1. [+709, -170] What do you mean sixth hit... Fingertip doesn't count 
↪ [+100, -18] They seem to have included their foul ball
↪ [+110, -18] Honestly, if you look at Fingertip's numbers and data, it's a flop 

2. [+531, -149] Did Fingertip do well? From what I know, they didn't once win an award 

3. [+95, -8] GFriend, let's hit daebak with this comeback!!

4. [+240, -61] Hope they give it their all again this time..

5. [+87, -10] Looking forward to them making a comeback with another good song~ always supporting you~~~ ♥♥

6. [+474, -140] They fell back a step with Fingertip

7. [+96, -14] GFriend hwaiting!

T-ara makes their appearance on SNL Korea

1. [+3233, -359] I realized once again that they had a lot of hit songs after they performed their medley during the opening 

2. [+2699, -447] T-ara really has a lot of good songs 

3. [+2046, -267] They were really popular and successful when Roly Poly and Lovey Dovey were hits

4. [+755, -62] The funny thing about Naver comments is that they always talked shit about T-ara but now they're sucking up.. ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+2423, -743] I hope they can promote comfortably now 

Original Source (XSportsNews via Naver): 'SNL9' T-ara, "Don't use words like determination", self-diss

1. [+898, -115] Tonight's SNL was super funny ㅋㅋ

2. [+606, -54ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Shin Dong Yup is f**king funny 

3. [+564, -87] This episode was really funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+446, -82] So funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+185, -23] "You're supposed to eat your rice cakes by yourself" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+218, -52] Am I the only one who pities themㅠㅠ.. They were a top girl group and then fell all the way to the bottom. It must've been hard for them after being shitted on and being ridiculed, they're amazing for enduring all that..

Lee Byung Hun is Kim Eun Sook's new leading man

1. [+5346, -417] Ah...... what~~~~~ this was supposed to make your heart flutter but this isn't it. 

2. [+3831, -276] Why???

3. [+3953, -358] I don't want to see Lee Santa

4. [+3826, -333] Was Lee Byung Hun the only one available? Sigh

5. [+3121, -252] Why? ㅜㅜ 

6. [+1295, -85] I've seen all of Kim Eun Sook's dramas but I just don't want to see this one..

7. [+1188, -63] Dramas are meant for women. I don't want to see cheating men especially in Kim Eun Sook's projects. 

8. [+1237, -84] I've seen all of her projects but I'm going to pass up on this one~~~~

9. [+1127, -58] How can I watch Lee Byung Hun in a melo? ㅠㅠ I was really looking forward to the casting after reading the plot ㅠ

BIG BANG TOP investigated for marijuana use, confirmed to have used it

1. [+17886, -307] When he was smoking weed, it was as if it was nothing but now that it's been uncovered, he's now deeply reflecting. He's really just spewing out anything ㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: 아가리 is like a derogatory (kind of) slang for mouth) 

2. [+13213, -132] If YG confirmed it then it's really over 

3. [+13205, -209] At this rate, they should just do a total inspection on Yak Guk (pharmacy) Entertainment

4. [+7766, -109] They confirmed.......

5. [+7389, -152] YG should conduct better management.

6. [+3598, -45] You watched your group member being shitted on ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ did you want to try it as well?? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ reflecting my ass ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+3500, -50] I'll go listen to GD&TOP's "Oh Yeah" (featuring Park Bom) 

8. [+3163, -53] Park Bom, G-Dragon, TOP are the only ones revealed. There's already three. At this rate, we should look further into YG ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+2737, -49] I knew you would do this....But do you really think he did it alone? We have to expose/uncover the other kids that were swept under the rug.... Yak Guk....

10. [+2644, -38] Just letting you know beforehand, you don't need to pay us back with your music. 

1. [+765, -34] The fact that a drug convict is in the police promotional unit ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+747, -50] A real fan will shout at the entertainment agency and boycott them to remove him from the group. The fact that he had a psychedelic party with a female trainee

3. [+510, -22] Based on his Instagram he seemed like a weirdo/crazy, but he's an actual weirdo ㅋ 

4. [+383, -29] Really didn't view him like that... 

5. [+313, -23] If you look at Big Bang's music, they make it really obvious in their lyrics

6. [+162, -15] Seems like he'll follow PSY's footsteps and serve in the army twice (t/n: PSY was also caught smoking weed in 2001) ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Even PSY is a part of YG 

1. [+12017, -160] I think they should do an inspection on all of YG

2. [+10619, -139] YG should periodically hold a drug test...

3. [+10238, -157] Park Bom, G-Dragon, at this rate, doesn't YG have a problem going on? They should do an overall investigation. 

4. [+6097, -159] Farewell 

5. [+5511, -90] Why the hell is YG so tolerant of criminals? Other celebrities get buried for even making a single mistake. 

6. [+2797, -38] Does it make sense that 2 out of 5 members do drugs? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 

7. [+2597, -30] At this rate, don't you think YG is growing marijuana on their rooftop? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Original Source (JoongAng Ilbo via Nate): Article

1. [+2425, -25] Not really surprised ㅋㅋㅋ Maybe it's because he's showed off plenty of druggie-like behaviors ㅋㅋ 

2. [+2269, - 31] There's no way only one of them used drugs, they should investigate the rest of them

3. [+2081, -21] How many is it this time, YG?
