[Article Translation] Bullies order over 30 servings of sweet and sour chicken to victim's home

t/n: A post titled 'Bullies ordered 330,000 won (as of 12/26 - that's $284.54) worth of sweet and sour chicken to prank the victim' is receiving heat on the internet during Christmas. It's an incident the business owner decided to reveal after they heard about the victim's situation but many people are angered. 

According to a sweet and sour chicken restaurant at Budang in the Gyeongi province, the day before the 25th, the restaurant received an order for 30 servings of sweet and sour chicken to be delivered to one household. Unlike usual, they called the orderer to confirm the order but the person on the other end said, "We did make the order". Instead they called the restaurant back and said, "We're going to have a lot of people over and eat it together so we want to order more and make the order so that it comes out to 300,000 won." They didn't have any other suspicions because it was Christmas Eve.

But the woman they met when they went to make the delivery said, "We didn't order it." But her expression turned gloomy when she saw that the special instructions said, 'Please say that her son John Doe ordered it.' The woman said, "My son is being bullied right now but it looks like the bullies ordered it as a prank." She made the entire payment for the order so that it doesn't inconvenience the restaurant and because they couldn't eat all of the food, she asked for only a portion of it and asked for them to take the rest back. 

The receipt for the order. In the special instructions for the delivery, it says: Please say that their son [blurred out] ordered it.

With a heavy heart, the business owner decided to post about this situation to a forum/community that they're active on, 'Clien'. The owner wrote that they will give out the sweet and sour chicken for free, the one that the victim's mother did not accept. They also wrote that they would like to help the victim and asked for help on how they can support them. 

Afterwards, with the advice of many of the commenters, the business owner cancelled the entire payment on the mother's credit card and they decided to sue the people who made the order because of obstruction/interference with business. 

This post spread to many communities/forums. Many people thanked the business owner for not letting this behavior slide. The business owner revealed the side of the victim by writing, "After speaking with the victim's mother on the phone, the victim is 20 years old and the bullies are 21 and 24 years old, they're not minors. They got to know each other in high school and they've been bullying him up until now." The victim's side speculated that the perpetrators did this in retaliation because before this, there was an incident where the perpetrators opened a cellphone account under the victim's name and extorted millions of won and they (the victim's side) was going to report them. 

The business owner wrote, "There are a lot of people who are worried that this might harm the business but I hope more people learn about this so that the perpetrators can get proper punishment."

1. [+20057 / -21] The fact that the perpetrators are adults who are 21 years old and 24 years old is more legendary...;; For the Earth, these perpetrator bastards need to just die....

2. [+8856 / -31] Please, please make sure that they get punished! I'm sincerely supporting it

3. [+6156 / -34] Now that they are adults, they can go to jail

4. [+3869 / -24] Sue them and teach them that life isn't a joke... They'll come to their senses after they get a criminal record and they screw over their life, guys like that never reflect... because starting from their personality is wrong

5. [+3063 / -159] I wish they would revive the Samchung re-education camp (t/n: here's a Wiki article about the Samchung re-education camp)

6. [+2516 / -6] Imagine how the mother felt having to see her child being ridiculed and wondering how to pay off the 330,000 won worth of the sweet and sour chicken that they sent over? The perpetrator bastards, with that start of this incident, I'm cursing you guys so that you guys live the most miserable life. 

7. [+1124 / -3] The sweet and sour chicken owner did a really good job

F*ck bullies
Embarrassing how they are grown ass adults and they're still doing this shit....

[I Live Alone Roundup] Kian84 transforms into Model84 for DAZED KOREA

Nationwide ratings for episode 325 that aired on December 20: 10.5% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+12907 / -363] Kian84~~ The shock still isn't settling down, you were so cool ^^
↪ [+155 / -2] Me too. While watching this, I felt that people need to get glammed up. I'm making an appointment at the hair salon
↪ [+180 / -9] His face is naturally a bit handsome, especially his nose ㅎㄷㄷ He's goes around looking so free (t/n: meaning he doesn't dress himself up) and because he's a webtoon artist who always works while sitting so he was prone to gaining weight ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+5875 / -503] He's really a pure soul so I think that's why he's even cooler
↪ [+174 / -2] He's not pure ㅋㅋㅋ but I do think that he's not fake

3. [+3782 / -203] You'd think that he was a model~ It's daebak

4. [+3632 / -297] I'm watching 'I Live Alone' for Kian84

5. [+2437 / -179] Kian84-nim, the photoshoot was so cool. I look forward to Fridays thanks to Kian, who's the representative of 'I Live Alone' ^^  

1. [+11578 / -116] The thing that was apparent today: Han Hye Yeon's skills, Kian84's charm, and Sung Hoon's true value

2. [+11063 / -665] Wow....... He's really f*cking handsome......
↪ [+463 / -13] The thing that is handsomeness exploded
↪ [+317 / -6] I realized the importance of exercising
↪ [+219 / -6] I was seriously surprised when I watched

3. [+10447 / -114] Kian finally finished 'Fashion King' 
↪ [+481 / -3] The writer completed it
↪ [+276 / -1] It was his story ㄷㄷ

4. [+3904 / -161] He's seriously.. handsome..... Daebak..
↪ [+178 / -4] Han Hye Yeon is also amazing - seriously, professionals are different

5. [+3483 / -254] Kian daebak, my heart is fluttering

1. [+4082 / -78] He's not Kian84 but Photoshoot84, isn't he insane - he's so cool

2. [+1722 / -43] I watched while constantly being in awe ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Kian jjang ㅠㅠㅠ♥

3. [+1154 / -22] He was really cool ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[1N2D Season 4 Roundup] Despite the initial backlash, season four's premiere is met by high ratings and positive reactions

NOTE: This article came out before the episode aired

1. [+2737 / -782] Starting form the lineup, it smells like it's going to flop~ It smells like it's going to be the biggest flop~
↪ [+155 / -5] Din Din: "Ah!~ This hyung! He really sucks at playing games~ / Ah!~ This hyung! He ate it all by himself!~ / Ah!~ This hyung! He's so slow!~"... He can't do anything without a hyung 

2. [+1158 / -109] I'll give it a watch

3. [+839 / -41] First off, you can get a feel of it after watching the first episode. Let's watch it and then judge. They will need a character like Kim Jun Ho and Defconn who can lay things out but...

4. [+538 / -27] Kim Jong Min is like a public official at KBS. Since season 1 until now, although they kept changing members, he's the only one remaining. He's amazing..

5. [+1451 / -1267] I'm not going to watch it because Din Din is going to come out

Original Source (OSEN via Naver): '1N2D Season 4' It became more strong...Yeon Jung Hoon → Kim Sun Ho x Ravi 'Fall behind → chugs kkanari-cano in one shot'

Nationwide ratings for episode 1 that aired on December 8: 15.7% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+3598 / -213] It was fresh and funny ^^
↪ [+130 / -26] I think the PD wants to become popular like Na Young Suk or Yoo Ho Jin..... She reveals herself for no reason..... 

2. [+2696 / -62] Kim Sun Ho hwaiting!!!

3. [+2582 / -135] If it's not a natural situation then I think it's a good idea to not reveal the faces of the PD and production team. During the kkanari-cano game of chance, they showed them (the production team) way too often so it broke the flow. I believe the staff members should remain as an assistant role. In the past '1N2D', they didn't come out that often, right? Isn't it better for their screen time to increase more after they naturally grow close and after showing their faces a lot on TV through natural situations? I hope the PD understands that they are a non-celebrity.
↪ [+323 / -35] They're just thoughtlessly copying Na Young Suk PD~ It's a contradiction of how they're using the licensing fee~~~ ㅋ
↪ [+172 / -11] They need to become known after revealing their faces so that they can go to tvN later on after they get good ratings
↪ [+291 / -16] I agree ㅜㅜ Even with Na PD, we're now very familiar with him so that's why he comes out on his show but it's completely our first encounter with the PD for '1N2D' but I think she's coming out too often.. But I enjoyed the first episode
4. [+2430 / -80] Today's episode was so funny. I'm seeing Din Din in a new light. He drank three cups of the kkanari-cano, I think he can do anything - hwaiting to everyone~~^

5. [+1099 / -142] Ravi seriously ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He's so funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He's passionate but clumsy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Original Source (news1 via Naver): '1N2D' Din Din chugs kkanari-cano for 1,000 won...The first ever

1. [+3123 / -22] I seriously thought he was crazy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+2043 / -45] It's hella fun than I expected ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's really funny ㅋㅋㅋ I found something to watch after 6:30 PM ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1491 / -27] But it's fun? Sun Ho is charming ㅋ

4. [+1409 / -37] As expected, Din Din is Din Din

5. [+727 / -28] It's really funny~ ㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎ

6. [+706 / -7] To be honest, Din Din doesn't have patience and I thought he would spit it out right away but seeing how he drank three of them back to back because he wanted to work hard was somewhat moving ㅠ ㅋㅋㅋ  

7. [+552 / -9] He's trying this hard but what's with the people who are shitting on him. Talk shit after you live that hard

8. [+528 / -30] It's all good but I think the PD-nim wants to gain popularity the most. It's funny but it was annoying how the PD-nim kept getting a frame

Original Source (Star News via Naver): '1N2D' PD, "The fun will go ↑ if we grow friendlier...Yeon Jung Hoon and Kim Sun Ho are refreshing"

1. [+2662 / -114] The PD-nim comes out on the camera too often, the flow gets awkward

2. [+1291 / -70] The atmosphere is alright but stop filming the PD, I laughed and the flow got cut off

3. [+1082 / -143] Kkanari-cano, seriously... Do you not have any other new ideas besides that?

4. [+750 / -37] The characters were fresh but let's stop feeding them kkanari, it's bad for their health. They're drinking all of it because they want to work hard, it was sad. Also, the flow was interrupted because they showed the production team so often. With Na PD, Tae Ho PD, and Yoo Ho Jin PD, we saw them since a long time ago so when they came out, it would be nice to see them and it would be fun but it's uncomfortable to keep seeing a PD that we have never met before

5. [+430 / -37] I hope it does well ㅎㅎ     

I was one of those commenters who didn't have high expectations were this season because I thought the lineup made no sense LOL
and honestly, after watching the first episode, it was actually funny!
I'm not fond of Din Din on his other appearances but it was nice to see him trying really hard for the show
Also I agree with the comments regarding the PD's screen time....
They could just make captions of what she's saying but they really kept going back to her reaction in almost every scene during the kkanari-cano game - it was a bit distracting

Original Source (news1 via Naver): Premiere 'Woman of 9.9 Billion' Jo Yeo Jeong discovers a pile of money with Lee Ji Hoon...'Opportunity' at the end of cliff

Nationwide ratings for the episodes that aired on December 4 and 5 - cr. Naver TV: They air two 35 minute episodes per day 
  • Episode 1 - 7.2%
  • Episode 2 - 8.7%
  • Episode 3 - 7.0%
  • Episode 4 - 8.5%
1. [+1249 / -15] Jung Woong In really plays the role of a ridiculous psycho well.. Kim Kang Woo, Lee Ji Hoon, Oh Nara, and even Jo Yeo Jeong, there isn't a gap in the acting. First off, the drama is intriguing... I think Jo Yeo Jeong's acting will continue to shine from now on... 

2. [+549 / -33] This is crazy, this is seriously a masterpiece angle, I thought it was a movie

3. [+501 / -33] Seriously how did Jo Yeo Jeong become a great actress like this ㅠㅠ Now she became a great actress where you can trust to watch it if Jo Yeo Jeong comes out in it. The current score is that she's Korea's top actress!      

4. [+446 / -8] Jo Yeo Jeong, Kim Kang Woo, and Jung Woong In's acting was insane. I was immersed from the beginning because the writer of 'The Time Between Dog and Wolf' wrote it 

5. [+280 / -11] You can get more immersed because actors who are good at acting come out~ It's fun

I wanted to do a roundup for episodes 1 through 4 but I couldn't find any articles with 100+ upvotes for episodes 3-4....
Even the Naver TV comments for episode 3-4 only had 19 comments with the best comment only have 45 upvotes....
Anyways~ I'm really enjoying the drama so far
Jo Yeo Jeong is a scene stealer, Jung Woong In is amazing at playing such despicable characters, Oh Nara is just perfect LOL
I wish Hyun Woo's cameo was longer ㅠㅠ but it's impact was HUGE
and Kim Kang Woo's scene at the morgue ㅠㅠ

also Lee Ji Hoon... damn....

[I Live Alone Roundup] Namgoong Min has dinner with Jo Byung Gyu in Hawaii + Lee Jang Woo shows off his cooking skills(?) and Im Soo Hyang makes a special appearance

Nationwide ratings for episode 323 that aired on December 7: 10.0% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+647 / -19] (t/n: The top comment is a spam comment that says if people upvote the comment, they will have a good night sleep, good luck will come towards their way, their family will be safe, and that they have a safe weekend)

2. [+339 / -144] You're airing a boring person for two weeks? Stop coming out now

3. [+186 / -69] Namgoong Min is boring ㅜ

4. [+140 / -50] Let's stick to acting.. ㅡㅠ It's hella boring, he speaks so slowly and it's frustrating

5. [+127 / -59] Boring... 

Original Source (news1 via Naver): 'I Live Alone' Lee Jang Woo cooks for his friends...Makes his appearance as a 'powder chef'

1. [+1388 / -17] No but it's hella refreshing ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1003 / -21] He said he began doing this after he saw a restaurant owning acquaintance using MSG but why is he using secret methods for a restaurant ㅋㅋㅋ Ssanghwatang, pear juice - that's all used by a lot of delivery restaurants ㅋㅋ I think he has quite a bit clumsy personality to him ㅋㅋ     

3. [+777 / -44] It's been a while since I watched it live and watched it until the end ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Lee Jang Woo? I wasn't interested in him but I think I properly became a fan... What are we going to do with his charm ㅠㅠ

4. [+651 / -25] Seriously today's episode was legendary, Lee Jang Woo is hella funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 

5. [+393 / -14] Powder chef ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's hella funny ㅋㅋ

6. [+292 / -4] I don't know why but I had a preconception that Lee Jang Woo would be pretentious..? but that preconception was completely wiped away today ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He's so easygoing and funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Come out on variety shows often~ 

7. [+247 / -23] Lee Jang Woo was hella funny but if the person, who played the piano and was singing about Kim Sarang nuna, lives alone, please invite him to the show ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He's f*cking funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Original Source (Star News via Naver): 'I Live Alone' Im Soo Hyang doesn't give Lee Jang Woo a break...Namgoong is hurt by Lee Si Eon

1. [+309 / -20] Lee Jang Woo was surprising. I thought he would be a bit snobby? ㅎㅎ His easygoingness made it feel friendly.

2. [+171 / -8] To be honest, I wasn't interested in Lee Jang Woo but after watching today's episode, he has a goofy charm to him. He was cooking so seriously and he said that he likes cooking for people so I thought he had something for cooking but it was ssanghwatang, cola, and pear juice ㅋㅋㅋ It's so funny and on top of that, it's all types of powders ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+120 / -16] Goofy Jang Woo, let's go for becoming a fixed member ㅋㅋ Hella funny ㅋ

4. [+97 / -0] Give a bonus to the person who wrote the 'powder chef' caption. I laughed out loud because of that today. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

This episode was funny!
I agree with the viewers who said they were surprised by Lee Jang Woo
I also didn't know what to expect from but he's very random lol
When he tried to say it's normal to not wash up (brush your teeth, wash your face) on your days off and looked for support from Kian but Kian said that he brushes his teeth LOLOLOL 
And his recipe for the jokbal.....
Literally, the only thing that wasn't artificial was the actual pig's feet LOL
Also it was nice to see Im Soo Hyang~
She's always funny on this show
It was so funny when Lee Jang Woo would tell her to stop saying things because he was making him look weird LOL
