2. [+399, -6] History is a spoiler because I know the ending, my heart was stuffy when I was watching the first episode ㅜㅜ

3. [+226, -8] Are Jo Jung Suk (Donghak) and Yoon Shi Yoon (suppressors) on opposite sides... I somewhat feel like this is going to be the second 'Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War' ㄷ

4. [+153, -11] Keeeeu...... The directing is awesome...... I choose this for Friday and Saturday!!!!

Nationwide ratings for the episodes that aired on April 27 - they air two episodes per day: (cr. Naver TV)
  • Episode 3 - 6.5%
  • Episode 4 - 8.6%
1. [+173, -18] My eyes have been blessed by Jo Jung Suk's masterpiece acting ㅠㅠ

2. [+118, -7] Choi Moo Sung, Jo Jung Suk, and Park Hyuk Kwon's charisma is amazing - their acting tension is fucking good, looking more forward to next week

3. [+101, -5] The two brothers are both sad ㅠㅠ Yi Kang's eye gaze when the Baek family told him to call him father ㅠㅠ It was so sad. Yi Kang's internal conflict is going to start soon, huh? Yi Kang-ah, let's hurry up and escape from the Baek family

4. [+81, -4] It's exciting and filled and I feel really sad for the two brothers. I feel like their ego is wavering but they're not self-aware of it yet. I'm also in awe with Jo Jung Suk's acting 

5. [+82, -13] Jo Jung Suk and Han Ye Ri's chemistry was also good ㅋㅋㅋ that thingamajig's thingamajig ㅋㅋㅋㅋ    

Manager Lim Song resigns from SM C&C, Park Sung Kwang quits 'Omniscient Interfering View'

1. [+3092, -39] She's really good-hearted and seemed like a character who didn't want to inconvenience others... I saw a lot of horrible comments because her mother and grandmother came out [on the show], the production team must've sweet-talked her onto bringing them on, do you think she volunteered to bring them on... People were leaving hate comments about her younger sister and her mom.. She's not a celebrity who's destined to endure that, I feel like psychologically, it must've been really hard on her 

2. [+2400, -41] What do you mean, why? It's because of hate commenters who tap away without thinking on their keyboards 

3. [+1730, -25] I felt a lot of things after seeing manager Lim Song - you're really sincere and because you're an amazing person, it wasn't just once or twice when I was moved by you - don't worry, I'll always support you! Power

4. [+1366, -15] Because you have a strong sense of responsibility, you'll do well in whatever you do. 

5. [+479, -105] There were a lot of hate comments that went overboard but they should've properly said goodbye on the show - can't believe the episode that aired on the 27th was their last episode 

6. [+437, -2] It must be really burdensome if the entire nation knew about my resignation

1. [+332, -20] It's been a while since I've had fun watching it. As expected, I can trust to watch Yoo-ames Bond~ ^^

2. [+187, -7] Yoo-ames special episode is a legendary episode!! I like it so much

3. [+145, -11] So fun ㅎㅎ For me, it's fun to watch on Sundays while laughing while eating dinner - why is there complaints..

4. [+89, -6] Yoo-ames Bond special episode daebak ㅋㅋ

5. [+70, -8] Yoo-ames Bond who has returned

3. [+129, -1] The four of their personalities are distinctly different so it's fun - I feel like it's not easy to come together like this

Nationwide ratings for the episode that aired on April 28: 23.5% (cr. Naver TV)

t/n: Kim Ji Suk revealed that the way his grandfather names people in the family is unique and cool. Kim Ji Suk revealed that his father's name is Kim On Yang and it's because he was born in On Yang. His father is a part of three brothers, his younger uncle is named Kim Jang Choong because he was born in Jang Choong-dong. His eldest uncle is named Kim Book Kyung because he was born in Book Kyung. The son of his younger uncle is named Kim London because he was born in London and he still lives in London - he hasn't changed his name and still uses it. 

Kim Ji Suk's brother was born in Shin Sa-dong and they wanted to name him Kim Shin Sa but his mother prevented them from doing it. Two years later, Kim Ji Suk was born in Shin Sa-dong too. He almost became Kim Boo Hwal because he was born on Easter (부활절). 

On the show, it was revealed that Kim Ji Suk's grandfather was an independence fighter and was the student of Kim Gu. He was arrested together with Yoon Bong Gil and was tortured.

1. [+4191, -25] It's cool. Because he was fighting for independence, the harsh torture must've been hard, I hope at least his descendants end up doing well. Kim Ji Suk hwaiting!

2. [+1665, -12] Kim Jang Choong, Kim Book Kyung, Kim London ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
↪ [+106, -1] Kim London is so funny ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1415, -14] Kim Ji Suk is so sweet... I hope he prospers even more and more in the future!

4. [+1116, -3] To be honest, the other things they brag about is so-so but no matter how much you brag about your grandfather being an independence fighter, I don't hate it. It's an amazing family.

5. [+717, -16] I liked him since 'I Need Romance' ^^        

[I Live Alone Roundup] Superstar Stylist Han Hye Yeon gives a special guest lecture + Kian84 goes to a Korean medicine doctor

Nationwide ratings for the episode that aired on April 26: 11.4% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+1789, -138] I hope Han Hye Yeon can become a regular member on 'I Live Alone', she's really funny and she's a genuine person.. I really like her

2. [+681, -53] I always make sure to watch the show when Han Hye Yeon comes out ㅋㅋ fun fun so fun 

3. [+447, -58] I want to see member Han Hye Yeon-nim at least twice a month ㅋㅋㅋ Also is there anyone who knows the brand of the jean jacket Kian-nim wore? It's such a cute jacket

4. [+305, -13] The hosting for today's episode was also somewhat clean ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+54, -10] To be honest, usually, I didn't have a favorable impression of Han Hye Yeon's image but after watching today's episode, my thoughts really changed. When she works, she's really charming and I feel like her skills are good. I was surprised by Kian's simple but yet big transformation ㄷㄷ

1. [+1616, -33] ShooSeuSeu is charming (t/n: ShooSeuSeu/슈스스 is Han Hye Yeon's nickname which is Superstar Stylist)

2. [+1039, -31] But still, they're doing a good job with the members they have right now! 'I Live Alone' hwaiting!!

3. [+627, -45] Today's episode was fun too, what's with the hate comments - then don't watch it 

4. [+298, -11] When ShooSeuSeu did her makeup and said she looked the same, it was so funny
↪ [+33, -1] When she was talking to the dog Nana and the caption said 'NuaNua' ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: 놔 means let go so the caption said 'let go, let go' when Han Hye Yeon was calling the dog's name Nana)

5. [+156, -10] Kian really looked good in the jean jacket   

1. [+1823, -313] Anyways, even if people say something, it's the most fun when Kian comes out.

2. [+1379, -51] I push down on my ear too when I'm at home ㅋㄱ The doctor ㄱㅋ is funny - they're finally doing Lee Si Eon's housewarming next week, I'm looking forward to it

3. [+997, -81] Kian's parts is average but it's never boring, Hye Yeon ahjumma and the doctor ahjussi were funny out of nowhere and today's episode was tidy

4. [+514, -32] I watched while pressing down on my ear ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Today's episode was really funny too

5. [+651, -185] I laughed loudly today at dawn because of Kian84, I like it so much ♥️♥️♥️ Kian84 is so cute~

The cast of 'The Fiery Priest' shows off their flaming chemistry on their special episode

1. [+1013, -10] As expected, 'The Fiery Priest' team's chemistry is daebak~ I also want to send applause to Kim Nam Gil's fighting spirit for his acting where he showed us many, many cool actions scenes where he fractured his ribs and finger - all the actors, let's for sure meet again in season 2~!    

2. [+605, -12] Musical actor Kim Hyung Mook's special skills saved today's special episode

3. [+595, -4] How long has it been since Kim Nam Gil came out on a variety show ㅜㅜ He's so fucking handsome, seriously 'The Fiery Priest' team is really amicable ㅋㅋㅋㄱㅋㅋ It must be fun if you work with them

4. [+400, -4] Kim Nam Gil is the best

5. [+267, -10] Actor Kim Hyung Mook-nim, I hope I can see you more often on variety shows~~      

Kang Hyung Wook praises Lee Hyori and Lee Sang Soon for being good dog owners

1. [+724, -8] Not just anyone can raise dogs~ I praise those who do a good job raising their dogs lovingly and while respecting them~~^^  

2. [+568, -5] When you watch 'Hyori's Homestay', you can tell that she cherishes them

3. [+303, -6] It's not easy to raise the dogs like Lee Hyori and Lee Sang Soon, you can really feel that they really love their dogs

4. [+380, -92] If you're a neat freak then you can never raise dogs like Lee Hyori. If you sleep with the dogs, the dog's fur will get on all the clothes and blankets
↪ [+237, -8] To be honest, I don't really know what the standards are for being neat... There are people who raise dogs that diligently clean up after shedded dog fur every day and there are people whose homes look like a mess even though they don't raise a dog... Rather than seeing if they have a dog or not, isn't it the difference between the person's diligence and laziness... ^^ 

1. [+2023, -70] I remember how Hyori unni came out on 'Infinite Challenge', she was singing karaoke on the karaoke machine and then said to Jae Suk oppa that she wants to go to Seoul ㅋㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: here's a link to that scene LOL - YouTube)

2. [+1262, -65] "Oppa I want to go to Seoul!!"

3. [+515, -140] That's why you're sad ^^ (t/n: this was like a pun) But when is 'Hyori's Homestay' season 3 going to come out?? ㅠㅠㅠ Please do it again, the healing variety ㅠㅠ
↪ [+145, -2] They moved to avoid brainless people but if they do the show again, they're going to suffer in that house too. Get healed by rewatching season 1 and 2 or go to Jeju Island yourself and experience it with your eyes and ears
↪ [+194, -1] I hope they can still do it in the house JTBC bought and not reveal their new house 

4. [+396, -82] It's really nice to see him being like a spokesperson for animals ㅎㅎ I can tell that he really truly loves animals so it's really nice to see ㅎ

Nationwide ratings for episode 5 that aired on April 24: 2.5% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+381, -7] This is my personal opinion but all I can think about is who is Kim Bo Ra's stylist ㅠㅜ. The excessive fashion really doesn't match the character, my eyes hurts ㅠ Even if we say it's because she's coming out as the director's daughter, the makeup and clothes are too excessive ㅠㅠ

2. [+196, -14] Kim Jae Wook is coming out wearing a modern hanbok but ㅋㅋ for a minute, I thought he would look good holding an axe in his hand ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I'm sorry, for me, when I still see Kim Jae Wook, the thriller comes back and forth ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+177, -5] The scarf did everything in today's episode 

4. [+140, -4] Wow after watching the episode, the previews are really good at mashing things up - everything doesn't really have a plot but they edited it to look like something playful was happening between Geum Sa Ja (t/n: literally gold lion LOL) and Sung Deok Mi ㄷㄷ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Sigh.. Are we eventually not going anywhere again this week.. ㅜㅜ I feel like the American girl Geum Sa Ja was talking to on the phone is going to come to Korea and it's going to become goguma ㅜㅜㅜ (t/n: people use the term 'goguma' to describe dramas when the plot becomes frustrating because there's no development)

5. [+105, -7] Kim Jae Wook's eye gaze is so fluttering ♡ 

Nationwide ratings for episode 6 that aired on April 25: 2.7% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+2307, -18] When Kim Jae Wook was touching the hand, wasn't that as erotic as most sex scenes? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
↪ [+334, -4] That's what I'm saying ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Is touching hands erotic..? Seriously,,,,, Kim Jae Wook who makes even hands rated R, Kim Jae Wook what exactly [are you].......

2. [+1597, -13] Kim Jae Wook's eye gaze did it all, wow....
↪ [+73, -1] It's just a drama for you to become a fan of Kim Jae Wook.....

3. [+1396, -14] There no probability but Kim Jae Wook's face is probable~ But why is holding hands more erotic than a kiss ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I like it so much ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
↪ [+140, -2] I want to see Kim Jae Wook in a passionate melodrama.. 

4. [+946, -14] Oh shucks~ It's a drama for you to become a fan of Kim Jae Wook! It's very desirable~!

5. [+873, -57] Park Min Young is seriously so pretty and the clothes she comes out in all match her

6. [+258, -2] I've seriously been a fan of Kim Jae Wook since a long time ago but he's soooo sexy ㅠㅠ We're watching a romantic comedy but why is it so eroticㅋㅋㅋㅋ Hoo 

Original Source (Sports Seoul via Naver): 'Her Private Life' Drunk Kim Jae Wook, starstruck accident with Park Min Young

1. [+785, -4] The writer is straight up stanning Kim Jae Wook ㅋㅋㅋㅋ♡

2. [+538, -3] No but if you suddenly kiss like that.. Thank you

3. [+247, -3] Wow today's episode....... was really daebak

4. [+217, -4] Please give us more full shots of Kim Jae Wook..... His proportions are fluttering, fluttering

5. [+203, -4] This is crazy, it's crazy - I screamed kyahhh~~~~~~~ ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[TW: Sexual Assault] MBC's 'Real Event Explorers' reveals the face of infamous sex offender Jo Doo Soon

NOTE (Graphic): In December 2008, Jo Doo Soon/Cho Doo Soon (56) gagged the 8 year old victim with his hands and then carried her to a public toilet in the building. He bashed and choked her until she fell unconscious. He then sexually assaulted her, causing horrific internal injuries. About 30 minutes later, he left the unconscious victim at the scene and went home.

Danwon police arrested Cho two days later after their investigation found his fingerprints in the toilet and bloodstains on his clothes and shoes. Despite prosecutors' demand for life imprisonment, the final court ruling dismissed the unrepentant Cho's appeal and sentenced him to 12 years in prison. The sentence's leniency enraged the public.

Authorities have withheld the victim's name to protect her and her parents. In January 2010, the girl had successful surgery to repair her colon and reproductive system, according to the nation's online encyclopedia. But her mental trauma has reportedly worsened. She fears that after becoming a doctor ― which she dreams of ― she might again encounter Cho. (cr. Korea Herald)

On April 24, MBC's 'Real Event Explorers' (실화탐사대) revealed the face of this infamous criminal. 

1. [+15841, -66] Even if someone kills Jo Doo Soon, let's allow them to be innocent.

2. [+8920, -55] I'm against him being released... Using the citizens' taxes and assigning guards to him, I'm curious about why they're releasing him.

3. [+4542, -11] Is there another country in the planet where a person sexually assaults an 8 year old, is released after 10 years, and gets to live normally? This is going over a sense of shame :

4. [+2968, -40] Know that it was a happy time for you when you were in there (prison). Even if you die in someone's hands, you're going to die first

5. [+1808, -33] We have to make sure that the devil Jo Doo Soon never steps a foot in society.   

1. [+10432, -56] I think we need to definitely castrate sex offenders from now 

2. [+5707, -49] Is there no righteous person who'll be willing to kill this bastard.. 

3. [+3323, -22] What if he commits a crime again after his release? They're going to say human rights this and human rights that again 

4. [+2771, -36] Don't kill schizophrenics who were falsely accused and kill bastards like this

5. [+2449, -20] A sex offender, who's less than a bug, needs to at least be sentenced over 50 years..!!! 

6. [+930, -3] Jo Doo Soon doesn't currently look like this...... All this teeth fell out and this seems like a picture from when he was younger, his current face is completely different. You need to release a current picture....         

prison was probably the safest place for you, you disgusting bastard

[Article Translation] Police officer helps a struggling job seeker and a month later, the job seeker repays the officer's kindness

Last month, A (28 years old) was reported by a convenience store for stealing rice balls. After checking CCTV footage, it was revealed that A also stole a piece of cake from that convenience store 5 days ago. At the time, A was preparing for job interviews and said, "Because of hardships in life, I wasn't able to eat a proper meal for the past few days. I was hungry so I went into a convenience store and ended up stealing". The amount of the piece of cake and rice ball A stole was only 4,500 won (roughly $4). 

Officer Lee Seung Dong (37) gave A 20,000 won (roughly $17) after hearing A's story and said, "I'm lending this to you to tell you to live honestly". A month later, A visited the police station. During that time, he found a job and earned his first paycheck. He came to the station to pay back Officer Lee and brought drinks as well. 

Officer Lee was out of the station due to work and told A on the phone, "I'll only accept your heart" and sent A back. A returned home and posted on the Ilsan Seobu Police Station a post expressing his gratitude to Officer Lee. In his post, A wrote, "I couldn't eat a single proper meal for over a week, I then committed an embarrassing, bad crime. The detective in charge of the case made me feel deep remorse when he said said, "No matter how hard it is, you shouldn't commit a crime." After the interrogation ended, he lent me (who didn't have any earnings) 20,000 won and told me to live honestly. I worked hard for a month to repay that money."

1. [+10881, -46] The person stealing definitely bad but I understand the situation and I'm also thankful the convenience store handled it appropriately and the police officer also did a good deed. It's an article that warms my heart...

2. [+4766, -1038] I'm surprised that there are job seekers who can't eat a proper meal... President Moon Jae In needs to read this article. 

3. [+3694, -24] There are people who spend millions of won because it's a birthday party, imagine how hungry he was to eat a meal. I'm tearing up. Young man, stay strong and I hope you live diligently from now on. That police officer is also quite a grateful person. People like him are definitely qualified to be an officer. Dog police, learn from this.

4. [+2952, -14] There are police officers like this but.. there are also officers like those bastards who colluded in the Burning Sun case...

5. [+1028, -14] Office Lee, thank you. A also strengthened his mind and I hope he lives diligently

6. [+558, -1] The convenience store owner who properly dealt with the situation, the police officer who was compassionate, the job seeker who repaid the kindness... All of your hearts are becoming warm, everyone stay strong!!
