[Grandpas Over Flowers Returns Roundup] Episode 1

t/n: Lee Seo Jin is known as the "jimggun" because he's the one who takes care of all the luggage and what not 

1. [+4206, -26] I intensely sympathized with Lee Seo Jin's words when he said that if you lag behind, it's no one's fault and that there's a way for everything and that the way of doing it is just different!! It was nice seeing them all being healthy!! (t/n: I feel like Lee Seo Jin said that because he's also grown older and his perspective has changed and because people have been shitting on Baek Il Seob way too much. Baek Il Seob has a lot of leg and hip issues so he can't walk much without him having pain so he takes it slow but some people have been saying that he's a burden to all the other cast members and crew and what not, it's really messed up)

2. [+813, -17] I really enjoyed the first episode. My heart kept feeling touched. To all five grandpas, please stay healthy for a long time. Seo Jin-ie as well ^^

3. [+767, -16] I'm glad the grandpas are looking healthy. Grandpa Kim Yong Gun is also really nice and seems modest. I watched the first episode and I'll continue watching it live. 

4. [+616, -29] Teacher Il Seob~ Stay healthy for a long, long time. I still miss our teacher Ja Ok ㅜ (t/n: 'Teacher Ja Ok' is actress Kim Ja Ok, she passed away in 2014 at the age of 63 because of lung cancer. She came out in the female version of 'Grandpas Over Flowers' called 'Nunas Over Flowers')

5. [+477, -21] I like that the show started again. Everyone be healthy~ When I saw Baek Il Seob, I also thought like that but after hearing what Lee Seo Jin said, my thoughts changed because not everyone is like me ㅎㅎ 

1. [+2907, -14] Because Kim Yong Gun-ssi came in, the vibes got a lot better 

2. [+1024, -14] Wow Kim Yong Gun-nim is a maknae there but he's a grandpa and if you seen one, you've seen all of them. He's super cool, starting from him ordering coffee - he was really, really gentle and humorous, seriously, if you have a father-in-law like that, you must be really happy 
↪ [+467, -0] You mean you want Ha Jung Woo 

3. [+953, -16] What the, do you not review your article after writing it? Writer, you're repeating the same thing and wrote the same thing again  

4. [+731, -18] The hyungnims and Lee Seo Jin who are considerate towards Baek Il Seob and Baek Il Seob-nim who's trying not to inconvenience anyone with his way of doing things..  

5. [+448, -8] I was really envious while watching... I want to travel overseas with my friends when we're old like that... 

MBC's 'Omniscient Interfering View' resumes airing after going off air for a month

NOTE: You can read about what happened here - X 

1. [+4006, -51] Did you even end up firing that production staff?  

2. [+2429, -20] What wrong did Lee Young Ja-nim do..; Thank goodness they came back

3. [+929, -31] Did the cast do something wrong... Because of the production staff that had an ilbe bug, they've (the cast) been shitted on a lot for a while    

4. [+401, -8] I felt this while watching a different show but Lee Young Ja and her manager's chemistry is the best ㅋㅋ

5. [+203, -14] Young Ja unni fighting!! 

6. [+103, -7] I heard the PD bastard barely got suspended for a month ㅋㅋㅋ Rested for a month and told them to return after it quiets down, disgusting ilbe bugs

Abnormal Summit's Daniel Lindemann reacts to Germany losing to South Korea

1. [+2560, -12] ㅎㅎ Daniel~ cheer up ^^

2. [+828, -19] Still Germany is a strong team. I feel like they're going to go right back into winning ㅎㅎ

3. [+385, -9] Daniel is cute ㅎㅎ   

4. [+297, -1] Daniel it's alright! See you again in 4 years!!! 

5. [+266, -17] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Daniel I'm sorry.

1. [+2217, -32] Germany-Korea match.. Germany didn't have fouls and the players have manners 

2. [+1443, -11] German Daniel ㅋㅋ I hella like him

3. [+1268, -24] But seriously they didn't have any dirty play and it was manner soccer, if they fall down, they would help them get up. With Swedish players, when Ki Sung Yueng held out his hand, they would shake off and get up. But I feel like our country should acknowledge our pass connection is insufficient.. Rather than us having done well I feel like it was Germany doing a little bit bad

4. [+560, -13] Din Din ㅋㅋㅋ He right away said to a German, "It might be doable for us too" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I remember his expression ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+497, -5] As expected, gentleman Daniel.. 

1. [+1139, -7] I'm sorry, I love you, we're happy ㅋㅋ

2. [+421, -7] Daniel cheer up! Let's go to round of 16 together 4 years later 

3. [+293, -31] There's no weak teams these days. Because it's doable, we went up to round of 32. If we're careless, it would be over but because of the ego where we think we'll definitely win and the sadness of us wanting to win the final match no matter what, I feel like that's why we have this result 

4. [+106, -1] We won but there's not a single person who thinks Germany is a weak team


[World Cup 2018] South Korea beats Germany 2-0

1. [+132392, -1582] Wow this is crazy, it's alright even if they're eliminated. You guys are the best 
↪ [+8021, -132] It's a victory that's more precious than a win
↪ [+5223, -41] Daebak Daehan Minguk great job ㅎㅎ
↪ [+6860, -24] Cho Hyun Woo killed it honestly 

2. [+100559, -752] Wow this is crazy... Seriously the thing we wanted was this type of thing 
↪ [+1702, -21] Good job ㅠㅠㅠ I'm crying 
↪ [+1377, -10] Thanks ㅜㅜㅜ I mean it ㅜㅜ

3. [+95471, -726] Daehan Minguk, you fought well. We're taking the winners Germany bb

4. [+85189, -637] My whole body trembled!!!!!!!!!!!! the fact that it's 2:0!!!!!!!
↪ [+1451, -7] You can't shit on this 
↪ [+1070, -3] Thank you to the Taeguk Warriors who gave it their all until the very end!!!!

5. [+80787, -675] Seriously ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ They're changing the public's opinion they're the best 

6. [+31745, -122] Wow it's really crazy, Cho Hyun Woo, especially, is the best

7. [+29228, -142] They killed it, to be honest - today's referee was biased and if there wasn't VAR we would've been robbed of a goal again 

8. [+25140, -96] Cho Hyun Woo is a world class goalkeeper

Actor Cho Jae Hyun denies the sexual assault accusations but admits to adultery

1. [+7485, -66] Why is he so confident... yes to adultery...

2. [+3844, -5] Jo Min Ki seemed to be aware of being ashamed but this one is really confident ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1989, -35ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ No to sexual assault, yes to adultery ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+1702, -45] He's really hideous now... 

5. [+894, -31] He's an asshole 

6. [+778, -14] Kyah (t/n: this is like the sound of scoffing, not fangirling where they go "kyahhh") he's a lowly human who's trying to pass it off as adultery so that he can avoid being arrested for sexual assault.. You're probably thinking - "sure, you'll be cussed out a bit for adultery and in a little bit, it'll calm down" so let's shield it as that but you need to go to jail. You're a criminal who knocked on an actress's room and sexually assaulted her.  


Wife of South Korea's goalkeeper Cho Hyun Woo deactivates her Instagram due to hate comments

Original Source (Hankyung via Naver): Cho Hyun Woo's wife, eventually shuts down SNS

1. [+13033, -66] I seriously want to beat up all of the hate commenters, seriously why are they like that

2. [+4280, -65] Crazy.. I thought because Cho Hyun Woo was playing well, too many people gathered to support him and it caused a disturbance in their lives... they're psychos... 
↪ [+264, -2] I hope the wife stays strong, she's not ugly at all.. After Lee Woon Jae, she's the most reliable goalkeeper's wife, keep your head up ㅜ (t/n: Hate commenters were leaving hate comments about her looks and Lee Woon Jae was the previous goalkeeper for the 1994, 2002, 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cup games)   

3. [+3746, -53] Don't mess with family..

4. [+2034, -99] If the soccer player isn't performing well then you should just say something about their skills, why are you talking shit about their family and a person's looks...

5. [+1301, -52] Don't get too hurt and stay strong~!!!

[I Live Alone Roundup] Rapper Simon D worries viewers with his recent appearance

NOTE: Apparently the staff had to persuade him for an year for him to agree to make an appearance on the show. 

1. [+3313, -121] I hope Simon D can really get along well with the people of 'I Live Alone'.. The people he's mostly meeting right now are all people who do music and because they're so lost into music I hope he meets the 'I Live Alone' people so that they can have small talks and they can laugh over things that are nothing, I think it'll be good if they can have meetings like that! 

2. [+1939, -42] It was so freaking funny when they were supporting ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1865, -32] I seriously almost died laughing when Gray showed up at the neighborhood's casual restaurant wearing a velvet party outfit ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+1214, -27] It was legendary when he turned off the TV ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: the members and Simon D gathered at Jun Hyun Moo's house to watch the World Cup match between Korea and Sweden and during the middle of the match, Jun Hyun Moo accidentally turned off the TV because he like sat on the remote or something LOL)

5. [+1145, -105] It seems like Simon D is going to keep coming out, Simon D is funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ he's so chill 
↪ [+338, -5] He looks less awkward with the members and Kian also gained another friend, whether he becomes a fixed member or a partial member - I hope Simon D gets healthier so that he can go have fun with them (t/n: Simon D talked about how he wanted to go on trips with the members after seeing their summer trip specials and LA special)

1. [+3702, -170] It was funny. Why is everyone saying it wasn't funny 

2. [+2303, -23] Rather than it (the episode) not being funny, I'm worried about him... it's not Simon D's former self, he's not even throwing back jokes, he seems empty and looks depressed, it doesn't seem like something to laugh about

3. [+2152, -40] In the past, Cheetah, Heize, Yook Joong Wan, I liked these artists' daily lives. Recently, it felt like they were showing a reflection of themselves that seemed really manufactured ㅋㅋ From that, I liked Simon D. That is what 'I Live Alone' is really like, is always meeting up with someone and doing something what people who live alone do ㅡㅡ

4. [+2127, -42] It can be like that..people are really screwed up...can only happy, upbeat, and funny people come out on TV

5. [+998, -36] Ki Suk-ang...why did you become so thin ㅜㅜㅜㅜ (t/n: Ki Suk is Simon D's birth name) 

He lost so much weight...
And he looked so stress about his music ㅠㅠ
I hope he's able to recover so that he's at a stage in life where he feels happy and comfortable ㅠㅠ
And honestly, I don't mind if he joins the cast - I always find Simon D funny

[Article Translation] Another woman comes out and accuses actor Cho Jae Hyun of sexual assault

It appears like actor Cho Jae Hyun's #MeToo disclosures haven't ended. The accusations began since last February and another accusation of sexual assault has appeared. Korean-Japanese actress A (42 years old) is claiming that Cho Jae Hyun sexually assaulted her at a public broadcast station's restroom 16 years ago. 

The first time A met Cho Jae Hyun was at a drama's filming location in 2001. To A, Cho Jae Hyun was just another acting sunbae (senior). 

Q. At the time, were you personally close to Cho Jae Hyun? 
  • No. I never met Cho Jae Hyun in private/personally. Why would I meet a married man who has two kids.  

Q. But how did that incident come to happen? 
  • Cho Jae Hyun was a sunbae (senior) who would talk to me on the filming set. There were times where I would feel weird because sometimes he would excessively make physical contact but in the Japanese culture, it's difficult for you to directly say, "Don't do this". Besides, he would sometimes behave like that towards his coordinators so I thought, 'Ah, in Korea, they must be like that with people they're close too'. 

Q. But how did that incident happen?
  • It was the day where I was taking a commemorative picture with the actors and staff at the hallway of the broadcast station's waiting room. I remember it being around May of 2002. I was taking pictures with seniors I was close to and we had put our arms around each other's shoulders but then Cho Jae Hyun came up to us by saying: "Take one with me too". That's why we took this picture on that day. I really didn't think that an incident like that would occur after taking this picture.

Top: The picture A took with Cho Jae Hyun before the incident
Bottom: The picture A took with her fellow actors, the person highlighted with the yellow circle is A's coordinator

Q. I know it might be hard but can you tell us about what happened? 
  • I remember it as being around 2 in the afternoon. He told me he'll give me acting lessons outside because there were many people using the waiting room. I followed him because I was thankful, we talked down the hallway and I think we also went up and down the stairs. At the time, there was a men's bathroom that was under construction. During the moment where I thought, 'Is he going to give me acting lessons here?', he sexually assaulted me inside that bathroom.   

Q. Is that possible to happen at a broadcast station's bathroom? 
  • Because it was under construction, there weren't any people. Cho Jae Hyun said, "It's alright, right?" while he pressed down on my body with his hand. I was going to say, "No, it's not alright" while trying to get out. 

Q. Did you not scream or try to resist?
  • Of course I screamed. Cho Jae Hyun covered my mouth. What I remember is that after he finished, he said to me, "That was good, right?" I'm not sure how I returned back to the waiting room. I just absent-mindedly went into the waiting room.

Q. Were there no witnesses?
  • When I went into the waiting room, my coordinator said: "Where did you go? I was looking for you. Why did your face turn so pale?" I was unable to say anything and just absent-mindedly sat on the sofa. After a while, Cho Jae Hyun came into the waiting room and he placed his face between my thighs and knees (t/n: so their lap) and laid down.     

Q. That coordinator might be able to remember that situation.
  • It's been a long time since I went to Japan so I don't know that coordinator's contact information. I have that person's picture and only know her name. I hope they contact me after seeing this article.  

Above: A in a commemorative picture with people she appeared in the drama with

Q. Were you unable to request for help from the people around you? 
  • I was at a young age of the early 20s, I was really scared and embarrassed. After that incident happened, I only laid down alone in my room. There was a time where I swallowed all of a medicine and I was once told that I hung myself after coming back to conscious. I thought that if I told my dad, he wouldn't just let Cho Jae Hyun go (t/n: as in, the dad would beat him up and what not) and I thought that he wouldn't see me anymore because I thought he would be disappointed in me. After that, Cho Jae Hyun would secretly touch me at the filming set and it was terrible. During those times, I would purposely go near the other senior actors so that I wouldn't be alone as much as I can. One time, the coordinator intervened and said: "Oppa, stop it." After seeing that, middle-aged actor N told me, "Be careful with your body/be careful about your body".  

Q. How were you able to reveal that truth? 
  • The first person to know was my then Japanese boyfriend who I was living with at that time. We were living together for a long time since Japan and he came to Korea to see me. I no longer wanted to go to the filming set. Before this, I was a bright personality but after the incident, I behaved weirdly on the filming set. I created a fuss saying I didn't want to go to the filming set and that I would jump off the villa. I only told the truth to my boyfriend. During that time, I didn't want to acknowledge what occurred as a "rape" but my boyfriend told me, "what you experienced is rape and I can't forgive him."

Q. Did your boyfriend let your mother know?
  • My mother was working in Japan and came to see me in Korea. I told her I wanted to stop acting and my mother felt like something was out of the ordinary so she asked my boyfriend. My boyfriend told my mother that I experienced something serious because of Cho Jae Hyun and I know that my mother contacted Cho Jae Hyun and immediately went to find him. 

Q. To A's mother, at the time - what was Cho Jae Hyun's reaction?
  • A's mother: We met in a room that was a bar in the basement of a building in Gangnam. He was alone. When I said, "You know why I'm here, right?" - he went down on his knees. That's why I said, "Hey, you bastard. Let's go to your wife." After I said that, he begged while saying, "I've committed a sin. My wife is receiving psychological treatment and our relationship is bad to the point where she's tracking me with a GPS."  

Q. What about meeting after that?
  • A's mother: After the apology, the place we agreed to meet at was at the office of a famous director. At that place, I remember meeting the director. Cho Jae Hyun, who apologized to me, began trying to persuade me. He said, "Mother, isn't it too much of a waste for A to give up on her acting career? Since A goes around without a manager and only with her coordinator and driver, I think a management/entertainment agency will match well with her. Since there's a lot of scammers in the entertainment industry, my manager can manage A and can make her into a good actor with an acting teacher." 

Q. Did you decide on working with Cho Jae Hyun's manager?
  • A's mother: Thinking about the future of my daughter - who's in her early 20s, a daughter's relationship with her father, I thought it was right to quickly grow her dreams and quickly live a normal life instead of creating issues. Although Cho Jae Hyun was untrustworthy, that manager looked nice. The father recently learned about the rape incident in the bathroom. It's because at that time, he only thought a married man did something wrong to our daughter. If he knew about the rape in the bathroom, he wouldn't have chosen that. 

Q. Is that why A chose to go along with the mother's reason?
  • Yes. But during those 5 years, I was suffering from really severe depression. They kept placing me with an acting teacher saying that I needed to practice acting but the only audition I partook in was 'Welcome to Dongmakgol'. They told me that a stage on a small theater is good too but I've never stood on a stage. 

Q. And your severe depression didn't get better?
  • I did the plastic surgery they ordered me to do, I did the diet but my life stayed the same. But then, my father learned about the drastic choices I made. He got really mad and told me he was disappointed. I couldn't take it anymore so in 2007, I sold the villa and moved to Japan.  

Q. I heard you also made a drastic choice recently.
  • For the interview, I checked my medical report but there's dozens of reports about me receiving hospital treatment. They were all because I chose drastic choices. After moving to Japan, I was going through tough times and was really upset because I thought that I was fooled. My father passed away 4 years ago but no one told me so I found out recently. My past is really guilty and it's hard.  

Q. What is it that you truly want? 
  • I just want to announce it like this so that I can let people know the truth. I can no longer get married and because I took so many medications, my body can no longer have kids. I don't want money, I want Cho Jae Hyun to know exactly what he did and apologize to me and the other victims. 

Q. Cho Jae Hyun's reps revealed that they're going to sue. 
  • I'm not afraid at all. I heard that there's the crime of false accusation in Korea. I'm trusting in that. I'm confident that there's nothing false in what I said. There are going to be people asking why I'm blaming someone else. I'm certain. If there was no Cho Jae Hyun and that incident didn't occur, even if I wasn't an actor, I would've been happy enough. 

1. [+14193, -86] Wow ㄷㄷㄷ I have no words ㄷㄷㄷ Seriously, because of a person like this, I'm suspicious of other celebrities and what they do once the camera stops rolling... he's really psycho...

2. [+8353, -116] What young women all had consensual sex with him ㅋㅋㅋ Why would young women have sex with an ahjussi who has two kids..... he thinks he's really cool ㅋㅋㅋ 

3. [+6394, -61] Hurry up and investigate this, this person looks like he needs to be investigated 

4. [+4792, -73] Are they not going to investigate? Exactly how many more victims need to come out for them to even start acting like they're investigating?

5. [+2507, -67ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Cut it off, that over there (t/n: they're saying cut his dick off)

6. [+1683, -15] Every time they try to refute sexual assault, they say: "It was consensual" ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Now it seems like even married man aren't embarrassed of having sex as long as it's consensual (t/n: they're talking about married men having sex with people who aren't their partners)

1. [+10071, -162] I'm supporting her

2. [+5143, -33] I hope Kim Ki Duk and Cho Jae Hyun both disappear from society       

3. [+4174, -34] When he appeared as an abnormal pervert in movies, that wasn't acting. Kim Ki Duk's movies don't contain cinematic quality, it's just a perverted director and actor making their life and thoughts into footage. Trash...

4. [+1811, -33] Cho Jae Hyun-ssi, I would like it if you didn't come out on TV 

5. [+986, -34] I hope the truth quickly comes out, be strong     

1. [+2399, -38] He really isn't human. Even if he's trash, he's rotten trash

2. [+1092, -15] Whether or not there was consent, he's a person who had a family... the result is that he's food waste that can't even be recycle

3. [+972, -12] Sex offender... why is he so confident? Did you live happily during the time you came out on TV and movies while putting on a mask? On top of that, while planning a play, this stingy person didn't even use his money! Choi Hwa Jung was casted and the actor paid for the dinner party instead! Your nature/personality was exposed then and there! 

4. [+419, -13] Wow... this bastard is really shameless... ㄷㄷ

5. [+301, -10] I don't know, he's just trash - arrest him        


[SPOILERS!!!][Miss Hammurabi Roundup] Episode 7-9

1. [+643, -11] I seriously really like each and every episode of Miss Hammurabi ㅠㅠㅠ!!

2. [+180, -6] Kim Myung Soo is really handsome~~~ 1 hour really flies by ^^ His emotional acting is really natural ^^

3. [+115, -4] Judge Im and Judge Park's chemistry is good  

4. [+87, -4] ㅠㅠ I really like it because it's a drama that makes me cry with each and every episode but because it's issues that we see and hear in our lives, it hits my heart even more 

1. [+946, -16] Today's episode was really crazy. Seeing Park Cha Oh Reum after she reported the department head for soliciting, I saw myself thinking: "But he was still a nice person, did you have to go that far.. she did the right thing but weirdly, I hate her" and I felt quite odd. And also, it doesn't seem like there are people who are completely good and who are completely bad,,,, This is a drama where you learn a lot of things 

2. [+563, -11] The only thing Oh Reum-ie did was doing the right thing but in reality, the stinging looks treat her as if she did something wrong 

3. [+542, -6] Im Ba Reun is just a reflection of us. With every case, take a step back and think rationally because it's not our problem, but if it approaches me, I'll be like Park Cha Oh Reum and be like the corrupted judge, and it feels like doing even more is what makes you human. I hope you think more about what Im Ba Reun did at the hospital. The emotions of a human are so complex and on top of that, there's reason. There can be one answer and conclusion or you can say it was an accident caused by a dichotomy. 

4. [+393, -10] She did what she had to do but my heart hurts... I really like this drama

5. [+173, -11] I wish there were a lot of judges like Park Cha Oh Reum
