[SPOILERS!!!][My ID is Gangnam Beauty Roundup] Episode 11

Nationwide rating for episode 11: 4.189% (cr. Nielsen Korea)

1. [+2599, -33] It's my first time seeing a drama where it's episode 11 but they're still not dating... 

2. [+1024, -6] What do you mean, "Don't you kind of like me?" ㅋㅋㅋ You both like each other a lot 

3. [+989, -86] The plot development is too slow... And like a weekend drama, I don't know who the main character is, it seems like the minor characters have more screen time than the main characters ㅜ

4. [+444, -26] Even the confession is Kyung Seok's style..ㅋㅋ What's with Hyun Soo Ah purposely hugging him, I liked that there was a preview for the next episode but I cursed...

5. [+244, -16] Kyung Seok-ah, not a little but a lot~ She really likes you 

1. [+917, -95] I think without a doubt, it's eyes when it comes to actors. In Im Soo Hyang's eyes, you really see things like sincerity but with Cha Eun Woo's eyes, it feels like I'm looking at empty space. I feel like it's because he hasn't been acting that long. Because his face is already perfect, I wish he would practice more. 

2. [+485, -11] Even if Do Kyung Seok confessed at the level of Hwang Ui Jo's shooting, Kang Mi Rae's defense skill is like Cho Hyun Woo's (t/n: they're talking about soccer players)

3. [+166, -10] The corner of my mouth goes up as I click on Cha Eun Woo's article..ㅎㅎ

4. [+107, -5] Yes, I like you, I like you ㅠㅠ   

There's a comment I read on another article but someone wrote the difference between Yeon Woo Young and Do Kyung Seok that I really enjoyed:
Yeon Woo Young fell for post-surgery Mi Rae, he heard that she was the prettiest in her major and he likes Mi Rae because of her appearance - whereas, Do Kyung Seok, although he knows about her past face, the face that she hates to death, he likes her inner qualities/characteristics

[I Live Alone Roundup] Jun Hyun Moo worries about his hair loss, Lee Si Eon spends the day on the set of 'Player'

Nationwide rating for this week's episode: 14.1% (cr. Nielsen Korea)

1. [+2425, -135] Song Seung Heon.. Wow he's really fucking handsome.. No matter what people say about the idol actors these days.. They completely lack in charm... This is an actor's aura that's completely on a different level. He was even more amazing during his prime.

2. [+1994, -57] Today's episode was trivial but it was funny and I liked it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1746, -305] I didn't know this while Kian was there but when he's not there, it feels empty. His kind of insensitive remarks and dumb jokes clicks well with variety shows. 

4. [+1702, -583] Why is Hwasa coming out again 
↪ [+134, -19] That's what I'm saying
↪ [+227, -5] Rather than being a fixed cast member, I feel like you can just see her as a member (of the Rainbow Club)?? When you look at the comments, it seems like a lot of people don't like it when other people are becoming fixed cast members... At this rate, it's going to end up like 'Infinite Challenge' ㅠ

5. [+756, -29] I ate Song Seung Hun preservatives 

1. [+653, -11] Great actor-nim, I'm always supporting you (t/n: this is Lee Si Eon's nickname from 'I Live Alone')

2. [+391, -36] Song Seung Heon is so handsome.. ㅠㅠ Is everyone whose last name is Song blessed with good genes - Song Hye Kyo, Song Joong Ki, Song Seung Heon ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

3. [+270, -8] Actor Lee Si Eon-nim waits really long and seeing him like that makes me feel a bit bad for him... 

4. [+187, -9] Because he had huge effort, there is today's Lee Si Eon. They say your effort never betrays you, the thing that betrays you are people, especially people who have power

5. [+109, -6] Lee Si Eon is good at acting 

I feel so bad for Jun Hyun Moo ㅠㅠ I know how stressful it is when your hair keeps falling out ㅠㅠ
Omg Song Seung Heon is sooooo freaking handsome wowwwww ♡
And I love how Soo Jung came out for like 30 seconds, my bb ㅠㅠ - I'm so excited for 'Player' ㅠㅠ
Also when 3D reassured that Kian84 isn't leaving the show and that he's just in Japan finishing up his webtoon.
I love how they met up in Japan, their friendship is so precious 

Actor Kim Eui Sung reveals that he doesn't know any Japanese and just memorizes his lines

1. [+2181, -38] He's good at Japanese and Japanese people say that in 'Mr. Sunshine', his Japanese pronunciation is the most accurate ㅋㅋ Amazing

2. [+631, -68] Even if it's the golden age of abbreviations/shorten words, using shorten words for the headline is a bit... (t/n: in the original Korean title, the author wrote: 1도 which can be translated to like "at all" or "not even an ounce" but in Korean, the word is shortened) 

3. [+522, -16] He was chosen by Japanese people as the person in 'Mr. Sunshine' who speaks the best Japanese...!! This is a daebak twist

4. [+206, -12] Wow a Japanese person said that him and actor Lee Jung Hyun's Japanese is the most natural but he memorized it ㄷ ㄷ he's the best!!

5. [+132, -15] I thought he was a person skilled at speaking Japanese but this is a twist!! He really matches his role

[SPOILERS!!!][Familiar WifeㅣWife That I Know Roundup] Episode 9 + 10

Nationwide rating for Episode 9: 6.879% (cr. Nielsen Korea)

1. [+410, -125] They're forcibly setting up the wife as a bad woman to make it work out with Han Ji Min.. And on top of that, cheating... What exactly is this drama

2. [+292, -33] This is a drama that's forcing the message that the girl has to be gentle and pleasant and needs to do a good job with their in-laws. It's because the actors are good at acting but.... the drama is a cliche and filled with outdated thoughts. The writer is so-so...

3. [+206, -16] Change the article title to the grass is greener on the other side   

4. [+146, -51] They're setting it up to him reversing it because he wants to and him actually not liking his first love and regretting it.. The story is really lame.. 

Nationwide rating for Episode 10: 8.210% (cr. Nielsen Korea)

1. [+3992, -83] I'm worried that in my next life, I'm going to be like that if I meet my current husband - I shouldn't even look at him 

2. [+3539, -62] Han Ji Min's energy at the end ㄷㄷㄷ anyways, Jang Seung Jo is such a good friend, I feel so bad for him....ㅠ

3. [+2283, -264] Whatever the circumstances are, because these two feel a fateful attraction, my heart thumped at the final scene... It was electrifying in several directions. But I feel like the viewers here take Kang Han Na's side too much and rationalizing. To be honest, Kang Han Na has the princess disease and everyone knows that she's really tiring and a selfish style. And it's set up as a fantasy where Ji Sung only has Han Ji Min's memories, you're uncomfortable because you're looking at it realistically... It makes me wonder if there's a point for you to watch the drama if you're getting this mad 

4. [+2134, -373] With this drama, the only thing I gained is Jang Seung Jo, I really like Han Ji Min and Ji Sung but today, their characters were all so-so ㅠ She has a boyfriend but confesses to another boy and kisses him ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Why would you take a drunk girl who has a boyfriend somewhere else... you should call her boyfriend

5. [+867, -39] I feel bad for Jong Hoo ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Jong Hoo ㅠㅠㅠ  

6. [+655, -11] Personally, I really like the character Jong Hoo.. In the past, he lived well as the father of twins and in the present too, he only likes Woo Jin.. Whereas, while seeing how Ji Sung isn't happy with this girl or that girl, at the end, the original problem is the person..

Go Hyun Jung reportedly in talks of joining 'Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul Ho 2'

1. [+167, -26] Go Hyun Jung vs. Park Shin Yang? It smells daebak~~!!

2. [+35, -10] 'Jo Deul Ho' was so fucking fun ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Park Shin Yang and Go Hyun Jung are two actors I like but are they a bit close? I feel like the tension is going to be ㅎㄷㄷ ㅜ I want to see the both of them in one work ❤

3. [+25, -1] Daaaaaebak pairing ㄷ ㄷ ㄷ Even though the filming crew might be a bit anxious ㅋㅋ Both of them are strong characters on the filming set.....

4. [+32, -11] Looking forward to it my ass. Don't inconvenience Park Shin Yang this time. Also memorize the script, behaving like that isn't professional

5. [+33, -13] Was there no actors to use?...She has absolutely no sense of responsibility.. *tsk, tsk*    

1. [+673, -234] I hope Go Hyun Jung matures accordingly to her age. Anyone would be happy if they can live the way they feel? But, in reality, there are times where you have to live without showing that you don't like it. That's experience and maturity...

2. [+468, -68] I was really surprised after seeing the picture of her smoking in a lecture room. I really thought that that wasn't right. Smoking isn't wrong but it was shocking to see her smoke in a lecture room during class while teaching students

3. [+423, -168] I wish that she just wouldn't come out... Sigh... Think about the viewers too~

4. [+150, -37] I can't understand the PDs. Why are you using her?

5. [+94, -16] After getting married to a chaebol once, it seems like she developed an asshole disease. She's always a snob. She became totally unlikable after seeing her smoking in front of her students in a lecture room. She's trash       

[REQUEST][SPOILERS!!!] Lovely Horribly Episode 9-12

NOTE: Some readers have requested for me to translate about this drama but there aren't much articles that have many comments or upvotes.

1. [+129, -7] Philip is doing that so that Eul Soon doesn't get hurt. Ah it's sad. ㅠㅠ They're a really sad fate

2. [+101, -4] Philip was so freaking funny in the police station scene ㅋㅋ but it gets this sad in the end ㅠㅠ

3. [+78, -3] Philip is really funny when he's being funny but he's cool when he becomes serious ㅠㅠ He needs to hurry up and be happy with Eul Soon *sobs*

4. [+77, -9] The ending was somewhat sad.. ㅠ I'm curious again about how next week will play out

5. [+49, -0] The characters are all sad. Eul Soon, Philip, Sung Joong. At the end, the writer behaves in a way while thinking about others but the ending is always sad. I hope there's a happy ending.     


t/n: I think most of these comments were written by i-fans of Park Shi Hoo - most of it is written in English or Chinese

1. [+41, -1] Park Shi Hoo is really funny ㅋㅋ I'm having a fun time watching the drama ^^

2. [+21, -0park sihoo verygood!!!

3. [+19, -1] 朴施厚!Fighting!

4. [+16, -0] I'm watching because of Park Shi Hoo, writer-nim please let PhilSoon couple be happy

5. [+15, -1朴施厚!Fighting     

Yoo Jae Suk's first variety show with tvN, 'You Quiz on the Block', premieres

Nationwide rating for Episode 1: 2.506% (cr. Nielsen Korea)

1. [+1203, -25] As expected, the Yoo Jae Suk and Jo Se Ho pairing is good ㅋㅋㅋ "honey" ㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: Yoo Jae Suk's nickname for Jo Se Ho is 자기야 (jagiya) which can be translated to honey, sweetie, etc)

2. [+450, -13] It's really a show that's possible because it's Yoo Jae Suk

3. [+448, -40] I'm watching it right now but the quiz is - how do you say it? It's a useful quiz. I don't know if it's because it's Yooneu-nim's first time on tvN but he doesn't need to be careful about his words like he is on MBC or SBS ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He can just say things to Jo Se Ho.. If it does it kind of like Yang Se Hyung??? I feel like it would be more fun ㅋㅋㅋ But it was still fun ㅋㅋ  

4. [+300, -5] It's quite fun ㅋㅋㅋㅋ "honey~~ you're going to talk during the whole episode?" ㅋ (t/n: This show's format is where Yoo Jae Suk and Jo Se Ho walk around in the streets to talk to regular people and Jo Se Ho kept talking while he and Yoo Jae Suk were walking to a different location so Yoo Jae Suk asked him if they can just walk in silence LOL)

5. [+185, -2] Oh ㅋㅋ the Bangladeshi person is smarter than me! ㅋㅋ Congratulations~ (t/n: There was a Bangladeshi participant and he was the only one who correctly answered 5 questions and won the money prize)

1. [+2078, -62] Yoo Jae Suk and Jo Se Ho's team work works well together and I feel like it's fun

2. [+1919, -64] To be honest, how many MCs can pull off a show like this? From the outside, some people might think that it just looks like they're walking around the streets, do interviews, and solve quizzes but because it's on the street, they need to regulate it and because non-celebrities aren't people who come out on TV, as the MC they need to pull the fun out of the person and while they continue to move they have to talk and solve quizzes. I think the MC that specializes in this is Yoo Jae Suk

3. [+811, -39] For sure, I like Yoo Jae Suk's shows because they're not blatant, they're always refreshing and fun ㅋㅋㅋ I hope he hits daebak this time too~

4. [+717, -25] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Yoo Jae Suk and Jo Se Ho pairing is really funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's funny even if they just talk ㅋㅋㅋㅋ the show was fun and refreshing~

5. [+320, -25] I thought it was funny

After his absence, Kian84 reassures people that he's not leaving 'I Live Alone'

Kian was absent from last week's episode of 'I Live Alone'. Many viewers were wondering where he was and was worried that he might quit the show. On his Instagram, he explained: "I'm not leaving 'I Live Alone'~ I came to Japan to rest and draw. Thank you for worrying about a guy like me. See you in September. *Bows*"

1. [+188, -21] You can't leave~ 

2. [+149, -8] Whether he does this or that, he sure is a person that stirs my heart

3. [+38, -4] That's right, you can't leave.. ㅋㅋ Just don't cause a scandal.. You're a long run

4. [+33, -3] It felt so empty because Kian wasn't there~ Take a rest, charge up, and come back soon~

5. [+27, -0] Because of Kian84-nim, there were many times where I laughed loudly. Coming out on shows while publishing must be really hard but please stay strong~~~ Hwaiting!!!!!!    

[SPOILERS!!!][Life Roundup] Episode 12

Nationwide ratings for Episode 11: 6.483% (cr. Nielsen Korea)

1. [+967, -21] Gapdeujang: The drama's genre suddenly changes

2. [+948, -212] What exactly is Ye Jin Woo's character? He acts all righteous but what exactly is Ye Jin Woo's character?? Is that righteous, really? He actually makes moves based on his personal emotions. Because of him, the situation around him is more tangled up and becoming more of a struggle but if there are people like him in real life, the whole team gets tangled up and breaks down. Also, did that informant die because of the chaebols? At the end, one newspaper company wanted to save themselves and this happened because they threw the informant under the bus *sigh* this is frustrating

3. [+723, -43] But because this is the writer of 'Secret Forest', it's a bit early to be disappointed.. Once they see the ending, everyone is going to slap their knee. "Ah so that's why we were eating goguma back then... Ah so that's why we had to be disappointed then.." I'm going to trust that and go forward 

4. [+688, -22] The journalist that revealed the informant's face is the absolute worst

5. [+513, -17] It ends with the newspaper company not reflecting until the very end 

1. [+346, -2] 'Life' isn't a horror genre, right..? Ah someone save Oh Se Hwa.. Ah it's so fucking scary ㅠㅜㅜ

2. [+150, -16] Lee Dong Wook's character is a bit frustrating.. It's a character where the people around him can be negatively influenced..

3. [+110, -2] I got chills while watching 'Life'.. The ending was hella scary... It's really fun

4. [+93, -13] Don't know if the problem is Lee Dong Wook's acting or if it's the writing or if it's the directing.. The Ye Jin Woo character isn't persuasive and he's annoying. He stirs things around here and there and doesn't do anything with his own hands.. 

5. [+106, -32] It's my first time being turned off by the male lead. The reason Lee Dong Wook even does things is because of his self-interest.. Whether they died because of the illness or it's a death related to the septum, to the family, the death is 100% due to the journalists.. I don't want to watch it now because of Lee Dong Wook.. 


[Article Translation] Two years later, a student messages the man who intervened while he was being physically assaulted

The OP posted about this situation on Bobae Dream, a car forum. 2 years ago, the OP posted on the forum about witnessing a student being slapped by multiple people in an alleyway. He didn't just overlook it but stopped the assault and reported it to the police. At that time, he gave the student a ride to the police station and personally told him, "Don't be scared. It's alright. If anything happens, call ahjussi," and gave the student his number. 

Two years later, he received a call from a number he didn't recognize it so he replied with the message, "I'm in a meeting right now. If you leave me a message, I'll get back to you." The person who replied to him was the student from two years ago. He called the student back immediately. The student is now a college student and will be enlisting soon.  

Caller ID: [Blurred Name] Student
OP: I'm in a meeting right now. If you leave me a message, I'll get back to you.
Student: Hello. I don't know if you remember me but I'm the student who was assaulted by his sunbae 2 years ago. I should've contacted you sooner and gave my thanks but I'm a bit late.
OP: Thank you for not forgetting to contact me and for letting me hear your bright voice. Your school life must've been hard but I'm proud that you were able to endure it. Before you go to the army, make sure to contact uncle

The OP revealed that he's a man who's raising a 6 month old child and the reason he couldn't just look past the student being assaulted 2 years ago was because he's in a position where he's raising a son. But he was also worried that he might've made the student's situation worse by intervening but now he's certain that he made the right decision after the student contact him 2 years later. 

1. [+6375, -35] If he didn't save the student then, the student might've fell deep into shame and you don't know how long they might've been bullied.. He's a really cool person, the two could've met and talked over this while sharing a drink~ This is a really heartwarming article

2. [+2575, -27] They're both cool. The courage and good will of the person who helped and the young student who didn't forget that and remembered to be thankful.

3. [+1179, -23] Turning a blind eye even though they saw injustice and not being able to intervene is what the majority will do. He's amazing.

4. [+400, -15] You did a very good job~~ Clap, clap, clap ^^

5. [+310, -27] This is heartwarming

Yewon says she gained hope as an actress after 'What's Wrong with Secretary Kim'

1. [+1966, -229] It's still uncomfortable to watch her because every time you see her, you think about what happened (t/n: They're talking about her scandal with Lee Tae Im, you can read about it here: X - Asian Junkie)

2. [+649, -38] "Unni, you don't like me, right?"

3. [+481, -40] I wish she would stop coming out

4. [+355, -20] Someone might think she came out as the lead role 

5. [+166, -11] 'WWWSK' ended so long ago but...... 

Lee Sun Bin turns down offer to replace Nana as the female lead in 'Four Men'

Original Source (Ilgan Sports via Naver): Lee Sun Bin turns down off for the female lead of 'Four Men'

1. [+164, -2] Just shut the drama down.... 

2. [+25, -4] Is there reason for her to clean up poop - seriously, I feel like if you join this, it'll be the second Go Hyun Jung situation 

3. [+16, -2] Good decision, a different good opportunity will come!! Fighting!

4. [+14, -2] Sun Bin-ssi, hwaiting

1. [+251, -1] At this rate, just shut the drama down.. Who would come out in it

2. [+96, -2] After making it seem like they didn't give her an offer of course she would turn it down

3. [+28, -3] Then don't produce the drama 'Four Men'. All the actors keep quitting. Just don't film it. Don't even air the drama 'Four Men'. Who would watch it???

4. [+25, -0] Pay people a bit and then film and stop always thinking about scamming people. The broadcast stations are acting clueless and the production company is embroiled in legal issues. Who would want to film this


Actress Park Hae Mi's husband involved in drunk driving accident that kills 2 people

Her husband is musical director Hwang Min. His blood alcohol concentration was 0.104% and it's the level where your driver's license will be revoked. Two people died and three (including Hwang Min) were hurt and taken to the hospital. The two victims who passed away were members of the musical. They were all riding the same car. 

1. [+13306, -136] What fault does she have for meeting the wrong spouse..

2. [+6827, -91] What crime did Park Hae Mi commit.... Sigh...... May they rest in peace

3. [+5412, -77] Of course, morally, she and her husband should feel sorry but it's undoubtedly her husband who committed the crime and not Park Hae Mi. I don't know why you're cursing at the person who's also apologizing. 

4. [+4119, -239] Aren't they guilty for riding in a car with a drunk driver?  

5. [+2943, -99] What crime did Park Hae Mi commit...
