Kian84 under scrutiny for the meaning of his pen name, accused of being misogynistic

Quick Recap: 
Someone made a post on the I Live Alone message board with the pic above which explains the meaning behind Kian84's name and requesting he gets taken off of the show. The picture which is a screenshot of Kian84's blog says: 
The meaning of Kian84 - the city where the rice paddies are beautiful and girls go missing, the 84-er who used to live in Gian-dong in the city of Hwaseong.  
Some people are accusing him of being misogynistic and flooding the 'I Live Alone'-message boards to kick him out of the show.

1. [+14745, -1672] So they found something about him to drag about ㅉ (t/n: ㅉ is the sound of tsk tsk) they're hella reaching ㅉ (t/n: the comment is basically saying that people are blowing things out of proportion)

2. [+13120, -1412] What kind of nonsense is this? This is the first time I've seen someone reaching this far 

3. [+10647, -1344] Don't blow things out of proportions, you people are something else

4. [+9966, -1268] What a load of BS ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+5670, -803] If you read a few chapters of Kian's work 'Bokhak King' or see how he is on 'I Live Alone', you'll be able to tell that he's not the type of person to be affiliated with misogynistic people. Why are you needling

6. [+2182, -468] Stop it already... Stop trying to drive a person away, is your goal to have them commit suicide.. You can tell that little kids aren't the ones behind this but it's surprising that all the posters are women.. there's a lot of regular women but where did this person dig this up..?

1. [+4946, -1041] No, seriously... he never said that he liked the city where girls disappeared, he just said that he lived in an area where things like that have occurred, why are they reacting as if he did?? Why did we become a society where we have to find people's faults. 

2. [+4222, -973] It's a witch hunt... 

3. [+3830, -909] It's easy to send someone into their grave *sigh*

4. [+3493, -969] The people are really insane, Kian is hard carrying 'I Live Alone', if he gets kicked out, the show is going to fail 

5. [+3292, -848] Tumbling over something so useless, he only said he was born there

 6. [+984, -543] Sis please stop;;; 

1. [+885, -136] Don't blow things out of proportions

2. [+755, -92] In my eyes, it looks like Kian84's own self-torturing sense of humor... them overanalyzing things is scary

3. [+703, -134] Whatever you do, they say you're demeaning women ㅡㅡ Hey journalist, don't demean men~ 

4. [+637, -115] There sure are a lot of people who live life stiffly.. Hey you people, instead of worrying about what to post, worry about your lives..

5. [+321, -51] This is so annoying ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He's Kian84 simply because he was born in 1984 in Gian-dong, calling that misogynistic ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+141, -55] This is so annoying 

1. [+474, -78] Stop overanalyzing things you idiots

2. [+402, -69] At this rate, don't you think Kian84 will just leave the show on his own because his anxiety will worsen???,?,,,,, so just stop it, you professional haters

3. [+291, -57] The female ilbe coordinated it and is terrorizing him 

4. [+285, -52] The funny thing about the people coordinating this is that they don't attack 'Memories of Murder' ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ isn't that movie title more of a glamorization?

[Friday Variety Roundup] I Live Alone, Youn's Kitchen

He was ranked first in the Wednesday webtoon rankings for 4 years consecutively but then he was recently knocked off and his rank fell :/ But he said that the thing that's more dangerous than your rank falling is getting used to that feeling... 

1. [+1791, -85] Kian's in first place right now, fighting!

2. [+1681, -44] The pain of writer's block..

3. [+1259, -78] I feel bad ㅜㅜ

4. [+1089, -59] He's a matchless character ㅋㅋ Stay strong Kian

5. [+986, -112] The thing about life is that if you gain something, you also lose something. Let's not feel dejected 

6. [+311, -14] There are times when people are on the top and times where they fall~ Going through a crisis is an opportunity!...Can we even call it a crisis~? Other artists have a hard time even getting to third place but he was ranked 1st for 4 years, that's amazing~.. You did well even up until now. Since you're in a daze, just don't think about anything and take a break. When you properly take a break, an idea will come to you. Go visit Busan with Si Eon~ 

1. [+5575, -195] Kian's charm is that you don't know where he'll run off to ㅋㅋ It was so funny when he told Lee Si Eon to get an enema treatment ㅋㅋ

2. [+4756, -139] Both Kian and Narae were funny in today's episode, Narae's sleep consultation was really useful and I felt bad for Kian cause of his writer's block.

3. [+4661, -544] They're weirdly charming ~~ At first he was really unlikeable but it's really cool how much he's dedicated in his work, he's the type that makes a girl want to take care of him ㅎㅎ

4. [+2832, -117]  Fighting ^^

5. [+1008, -54] Whenever Hye Jin unni says "Narae-ah~, Narae-ah~", it's so~~sweet, she's Han Da Jung~ (t/n: 다정, da jung in Korean means tender, warm-hearted)  

6. [+893, -52] He doesn't seem like a person who's fake 

7. [+925, -107] Is Kian getting more and more handsome or are we seeing him as handsome now cause we're seeing him so often? Something about him is now ㅎㅎㅎ

Kian's Grafen CF: Link

1. [+2393, -69] I saw the CF on TV by chance and saw it by thinking: "Oh! Is that Kian?" 

2. [+2320, -210] I like Kian84

3. [+2261, -178] Kian gets more charming the more you seem him ㅋㅋ

4. [+1138, -65] ㅋㅋ

5. [+921, -57] Seeing how much Kian is trying, I feel bad, I'm sure he's really stressed, I hope he tries hard and gets back on his groove ㅜㅜ

1. [+7274, -195] Lee Seo Jin are you watching! Season 3 is confirmed!

2. [+5392, -156] Wow 15%~~~~ Lee Seo Jin, keep your promise! 

3. [+4886, -168] We should follow up with the promise and go for season 3?? ㅋ Congrats!!!

4. [+3927, -431] Youn's Kitchen is one of the best programs these days. I laughed so much yesterday, I thought my belly button would fall off ㅠ It's so funny and good ㅋㅋ ㅠㅠ

5. [+3452, -211] It is indeed fun to watch 

6. [공감1463비공감114] This made me really see Park Seo Joon in a different light. He's not just a celebrity, he's a well-rounded youth

7. [+1472, -124] Casting Park Seo Joon was God's work.. Park Seo Joon is cool... 

8. [+1221, -78] Seriously, they don't have a specific plot but you seriously still get pulled in.... your heart feels comfy when you watch it ㅠㅠㅠ

[Friday Variety Roundup] I Live Alone, Youn's Kitchen

1. [+1311, -93] Sung Hoon's chemistry with his health club director is killer 

2. [+1153, -65] The director threw up ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+832, -93ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's been a while since I had to hold onto my stomach while I laughed, Sung Hoon's part is so funny 

4. [+754, -117] Sung Hoon was so good yesterday. Please come out more often.

5. [+694, -89] How can these two be this funny?ㅋㅋ I hope they come out more often

1. [+3455, -108] Kian's six pack please come back....

2. [+2545, -103] Kian's parts are always funny but I exploded during the last part of Sung Hoon's part ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ The vomit hard carried ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Also I'm looking forward to next week's episode ㅋㅋ Is that butt sweat on Kian in the previews ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+2404, -64] He wasn't just skinny, he also worked out during those days.. whatever people say, the best type of plastic surgery is weight loss..ㄷㄷ

4. [+1737, -66] The house's view is so cool but Woo Ki Myung is scary (t/n: Woo Ki Myung is one of Kian's characters in his webtoon - his most popular. Kian and Choong Jae made statue of him)

5. [+1412, -87] Kian's six pack is cool

6. [+426, -30] Kian84 really seems like a nice person, I hope he becomes more successful 

1. [+5024, -94] Wow.. Isn't Park Seo Joon really good at Spanish even though he's only studied it for a short time? Just like the captions say, he doesn't carelessly use his time and is highly skilled! When he was working out near the sea, I really thought it was a CF ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+3963, -90] What is it that Park Seo Joon can't do.. He's good at working, he's good at speaking Spanish, and seeing him working out before going to work looks like a scene for a photoshoot ㅠ he's so cool

3. [+3742, -53] I was proud seeing the customers becoming fans of the japchae, bibimbop, and sweet and sour chicken... Director Lee is always right when creating a new menu.. ㅋ

4. [+2752, -36] Seeing them enjoy Korean food makes me happy for no reason ㅎㅎ

5. [+2546, -46] I want to eat the sweet and sour chicken ㅋㅋ it's making me crave beer!! Director Lee did good today as well

[Variety Roundup] I Live Alone, Youn's Kitchen, Infinite Challenge

1. [+8904, -90] Yesterday's story perfectly showed the charms of 'I Live Alone'. If you live alone, of course you don't talk. If you're home alone, it's possible for you to not talk the entire day unless you get a phone call

2. [+6208, -59] It was really funny because they put a robot/AI concept and captions on his easygoing personality ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+5146, -58ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ made the person watching embarrassed ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ it was too real

4. [+4286, -51] Real humanity ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+3772, -74] He does seem handsome ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+1182, -6] If it wasn't a filming, I don't think he would've been wearing underwear ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+1103, -10] He didn't seem like he was trying to show anything off... I liked it because it just looks like his real self 

1. [+12884, -724] When that girl came with her boyfriend and said aren't Koreans always handsome after she saw Lee Seo Jin and Park Seo Joon, I felt proud for no reason. For a time, when Gangnam Style hit daebak, people said that they thought all Koreans would look like Psy.. ㅋ

2. [+8403, -176] Youn's Kitchen is amazing

3. [+6663, -170] Youn's Kitchen is so good

4. [+6341, -160] You feel healed and even more healed after watching the show

5. [+2037, -136] From now on, don't go on vacation to that town.. Let's keep the illusion alive that all Korean men are handsome. If you really want to go, be mindful and act like you're Chinese or Japanese, understand? 
↪ [+327, -8ㅋㅋㅋ
↪ [+170, -6] Sumimasen;;; (t/n: "Excuse me" in Japanaese)

6. [+1252, -69] Na Young Seok PD is Korea's best PD... he's really amazing  

1. [+1060, -49] I really liked how they didn't just show the process from the perspective of an applicant but also showed the perspective of the interviewers, which is really informative. To all of the job applicants, I support you and your 2018! Fighting!

2. [+865, -51] I really like MuDo for always supporting people~

3. [+841, -43] I really like the Se Ho-Se Hyung maknae line

4. [+588, -39] Because of MuDo, Saturday's aren't lonely^^♥

5. [+410, -34] Ah this was a throwback

6. [+164, -16] Jung Jun Ha and Park Myung Soo seem like they're stuck in a rut of blaming their older age, show us that you're working hard like Yoo Jae Suk

7. [+178, -31] If Park Myung Soo, Jung Jun Ha, and HaHa don't want to do this anymore, then they should just leave now 
↪ [+59, -3] They make it so obvious that they don't want to do it ㅋ
↪ [+35, -3] They're really hella boring 

8. [+155, -24] Just replace Park Myung Soo, Jung Jun Ha, and HaHa~~ They have no drive because they're so full of it now and they can't even fit in well..

[Variety Roundup] I Live Alone, Infinite Challenge

During MBC's hiatus, Lee Si Eon did an interview and said he would quit the show the day Jun Hyun Moo wins a daesang. He said he never expected Jun Hyun Moo to win because he didn't know when MBC's strike would end. Since Hyun Moo did win a daesang last year, Lee Si Eon said he'll leave but will return next week as Lee Bo Yeon - he's real name. 

1. [+8054, -129ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Lee Si Eon is so funny and seeing him taking care of the members looks good too, I hope he does well!

2. [+5974, -84] Bo Yeo-ie~ (t/n: using a dialect to call Lee Si Eon's name)

3. [+5910, -103] Seriously no one can stop the Three Idiots' chemistry ㅋㅋ The Jeju-do's part was so funny yesterday ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+2010, -49] It won't work if Lee Si Eon isn't there. It made me think that he has a really good comedic sense when he started the Han Dhalsim thing and then continued by just tossing the welsh corgi comment which lead to NaraeCorgi being born ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+895, -10] Since everyone is being coupled up, Lee Si Eon is looking far into the distance, I thought he would feel left out but he himself admitted it ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+815, -25] I'm not going to watch if Lee Si Eon-ssi quits ㅋ

1. [+6483, -159] Oddly, they look good together... Even if it's just business, it still makes me excited...♡

2. [+5499, -149] It's even funnier and sweeter than those trash dramasㅋㅋ Instead of debating over whether it's real or a concept, just enjoy it

3. [+4819, -103] The current members' chemistry right now is god's work~ ㅎ

4. [+1041, -6] The person coming up with the captions is so funny... Editing is jjang. It's worthy of getting an award

5. [+946, -22] Seeing Kian having issues with his eyes on stage because of his panic disorder made me sad... I hope he gets good treatment... 

6. [+800, -10ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Were they being real about the captial of Jeju-do ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I was seriously grabbing onto my belly yesterday 

7. [+667, -25] Should've showed us a little bit of the after party.. we're curious about it 

Original Source (Ilgan Sports via Naver): Jo Se Ho confirmed as new member of MuDo 

1. [+20883, -537] Congratulations on formally becoming the new member of Infinite Challenge, Jo Se Ho.. We hope to see good contributions from you..

2. [+14929, -448] Congratulations Jo Se Ho-ssi ❤❤

3. [+14175, -463] Jo Se Ho hard-carried today ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Just continue doing things the way you did today!

4. [+11395, -385] Jo Se Ho, I'm supporting you!!!

5. [+10689, -390ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He matches so well fighting

Park Narae ♥ Kian84 reveal their thoughts on the marriage pledge + forehead kiss

1. [+11187, -188] The members' chemistry on 'I Live Alone' is the best

2. [+8388, -192] Even though my brain can already assume that it's a business couple, I always look them up because I'm curious about their ending ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I've clicked on the top articles on the portal sites that are news about celebrity couples that are marrying or dating but this is the first couple that made me search things up ㅋㅋ

3. [+5977, -242] Are you really sly, Kian?

4. [+4485, -242] I'm supporting you, fighting! ㅋㅋㅋ they're so likable..

5. [+3613, -113ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㄱㅋㅋㅋㅋㄱㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㄱㅋㄱㅋㄱㅋㅋㅋㅋㄱㅋㄱㄱㅋ

6. [+1456, -24] Although not as much as Kian-Na Rae, I really like the chemistry between Hye Jin-Na Rae. If they were uncomfortable with each other, they would never be able show off the atmosphere they give off right now. They really look close to each other and their reactions are good too. Especially Park Na Rae, when someone starts off a joke, she always responds to it ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I hope these two never leave the show

7. [+1158, -11] I hope the writers don't try to set things up.. (t/n: they're talking about writers making it scripted) Because the biggest strength for 'I Live Alone' is their naturalness
