NCT Dream debuts with 'Chewing Gum'





Article: NCT Dream, "Grateful to get to debut under SM... we will work hard"

Source: OSEN via Naver

1. [+301, -59] They're just punching them straight out of the factory now... SM has just turned into a complete idol factory

2. [+175, -14] If they keep putting out these units, they're only going to end up getting individual fans... ㅠㅠ

3. [+128, -18] It's a good system but from the perspective of the fans, it's a bit of an odd feeling... ㅜㅜ and I wonder if Haechan and Mark weren't on 'Weekly Idol' because of Dream promos

4. [+99, -14] What we were afraid of has become reality

5. [+84, -12] They really look young this time..

6. [+26, -1] SM must really love Mark, they debuted him 3 times in a year...

7. [+34, -8] Aren't they in junior high to high school?? The members being young isn't even that weird since Sohee, Sunmi, and Hyuna debuted when they were in junior high too;;

8. [+13, -2] Mark's a pro-debuter now ㅋㅋㅋ but I'm sure SM recognizes that he has many different charms to him~ fighting to NCT Dream~

9. [+15, -4] Their song really is so cute though ㅋ haven't heard such a cute song in a while

10. [+22, -6] Their song's good, chewchewchewchewing gum. SM has a rhyme and reason for everything.

Hwayoung earns a passing grade on her transition from idol to actress


Article: 'Youth Generation' Ryu Hwayoung, forgets T-ara... the birth of a real actress

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+669, -35] She's actually good

2. [+629, -67] So pretty. Forget about that low class T-ara group and continue soaring forward. T-ara, those ba$tards.

3. [+539, -35] Really enjoying her drama ㅋㅋ She pulls off her character perfectly... fighting ^^

4. [+49, -3] See, you gotta be like her and start acting from smaller roles up so that there are no awkward gaps in your acting. But look at the current idols, lead roles right off the bat ㅋㅋㅋ and after that drama flops??? They land another lead role ㅋㅋㅋㅋ and once their careers get trashed in Korea, they head over to Japan or China ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+49, -3] She's good at acting and has an amazing body

6. [+46, -2] Surprised at how good she is, I think she has a lot of growth potential to be a good actor

7. [+42, -3] She's actually been in a lot of supporting roles ㅋㅋ She's good, barely feels like an idol and she matches roles like this well too

8. [+40, -2] She could probably start being called an actor now

1. [+14,678, -622] She has a good tone for acting, it's almost like she was always an actor. Get rid of T-ara and just call yourself 'actress Ryu Hwayoung' because it fits her more now.

2. [+10,422, -538] I actually never noticed her when she was in T-ara but her acting now is great. Ryu Hwayoung, do well!

3. [+9,729, -513] Good actor. Her body looks very western too, it's nice.

4. [+7,609, -368] She has a face for acting. There are a lot of girl groups who are considered pretty and get into acting but still show a gap next to other actors.

5. [+1,672, -85] Surprised at how natural her acting is. Maybe because of the aura she gives off but her face is a good fit for acting too.

6. [+1,592, -125] Leaving T-ara was the best decision she could've made! Just slowly take each step at a time now.. fighting ^^

7. [+1,427, -93] Her acting is clean, nothing to criticize here. She's not afraid to let go and get dirty either. I'll reserve judgment until she has more dramas under her belt but she's good in this one~!

SPICA holds 'Secret Time' comeback showcase




Article: SPICA, "We're an unpopular group? It'll get better as we keep walking our own path"

Source: Chosun Ilbo via Naver

1. [+956, -30] Such a talented group ㅜ Be successful

2. [+562, -27] Release another song like 'Tonight' and hit daebak!

3. [+466, -38] No comments here. SPICA's a talented girl group and I still listen to 'Tonight'. Fighting!

4. [+371, -22] One of the groups that I genuinely wish the best for!! Great singers, pretty, and hard working ㅎㅎ I know they'll make it one day!

5. [+360, -24] They have great songs ㅠㅠ

6. [+49, -4] They really aren't popular enough for how talented they are, I wish them the best

7. [+43, -2] Nowadays it's better to get on TV more and get popular for your charms or personalities than songs... I think it'll be hard for them to grow a fanbase from their songs alone~~

8. [+48, -4] What a shame because they have amazing vocal talent

9. [+49, -5] They're as talented as Mamamoo but the members don't really show their charms ㅠㅠ For an idol group, charms are just as important as talent... ㅠㅠ Well, find strength

Nichkhun talks about having the least singing parts in songs


Article: 'I Hear Your Voice 3' Nichkhun makes sad but funny confession, "I always had small singing parts"

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+400, -27] Because you're bad

2. [+365, -25] Did he never stop to think why he was always given small parts? ㅋㅋ

3. [+286, -30] I really don't want to see criminals like him on TV. Are they not aware of the many stories of families who have lost loved ones to drunk driving accidents? How can they think it's okay to basically almost commit murder and then come back on TV like nothing happened? Kim Ji Soo, Kwon Sang Woo, Jo Hyung Ki, Kang Ta, Nichkhun, Yoon Je Moon, Noh Hong Chul, etc etc etc..

4. [+27, -6] Didn't he have the Japanese confederate flag in the background of his Thai CF too? Now I know why he dated Tiffany

5. [+15, -6] I'm pretty sure he knows why he had small singing parts but of course he won't mention that ㅋㅋ

6. [+12, -4] The ex-boyfriend of the Japanese confederate flag scandal

7. [+10, -5] He really is disgustingly handsome though...

8. [+6, -3] I hate it when members who can't even sing complain about not getting more parts

Black Pink to stick to exclusive 'Inkigayo' promos


Article: [Exclusive] Why Black Pink only performs on SBS 'Inkigayo'

Source: Segye Ilbo via Nate

Article talks about how it's Yang Hyun Suk's decision and how no on even in YG knows why Yang Hyun Suk made the decision to only put Black Pink exclusively on 'Inkigayo'. The decision will remain for the foreseeable future.

1. [+624, -77] Because they have a deal with 'Inkigayo'

2. [+574, -84] To manipulate the trophy~

3. [+532, -83] They're not even that good, I don't know why they're being promoted so hard

4. [+49, -8] This is why I hate YG... This is what you call a "tryhard" attitude. A rookie should act like a rookie and promote their song as much as they can but Yang Hyun Suk thinks he's too good for them, too higher class. That only ruins relations with other broadcast channels too.

5. [+38, -6] Because they can't win on any other show other than 'Inkigayo'

6. [+38, -4] As if this is any "tactic" ㅋㅋㅋㅋ If YG had any clue what a promo tactic was, they wouldn't have promised fans that they'd release albums and then screw their fans over for over a year now.

7. [+37, -4] Does YG not have a good relationship with KBS and MBC...?

8. [+36, -5] The cockiness is through the roof... ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+32, -1] Not like it's Black Pink to blame when it's a decision made by Yang Hyun Suk... even their fans want to see them on TV more. What is YG doing;;

10. [+22, -4] So Black Pink is #1 on Melon but why are their text votes only 2% on 'M! Countdown'?!!!!!!!?? Where'd all the Black Pink fans go??????? Do you only listen to their music and not bother voting for them??? Are all you fans ajusshies in your fifties???

11. [+14, -2] Isn't it embarrassing to be known as the singer who can only win on one music show?

12. [+14, -2] I'm pretty sure everyone knows the actual reason why
