CL reveals 'Goodbye' was written for Minzy


Article: [Exclusive Interview] CL, "'Goodbye' is a letter written to Gong Minzy... lyrics of tears"

Source: Ilgan Sports via Nate

1. [+404, -64] Gong Minzy didn't even know about the song until she heard it through the media, stop acting like you ever cared for her and enough with this media play ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+404, -20] I hope Park Bom's reflecting... The other members made it this far without any big scandals but she demolished the group for her drugs. She had such a unique voice and the group overall had great songs that I enjoyed listening to when I was still in school so news of their disbandment was so sad as a former fan ㅜㅜ I hope that she's more mindful of her status as a public figure in the future

3. [+221, -18] Call her!!

4. [+36, -2] I can understand that it's a bit of an awkward situation to tell Minzy though... like, "We're going to put out a song, just the three of us, without you"... but if Yang CEO really intended this song to be a last form of fan service, he should've made sure that all four participated in it. Even if they're just a business relationship, they still spent so much time working together, it's wrong to let things end like this... ㅎ

5. [+22, -4] It's still weird to me that Minzy had no idea about the song at all... I would've at least sent her a Katalk letting her know

6. [+17, -2] Why do people believe Minzy and not CL? CL was the one who took care of her the most when she was still in 2NE1. It was always Minzy who took care of the other members and the 2NE1 fans the least. There are group fans and personal fans of every group and she only took care of her own personal fans.

7. [+13, -6] Just seems like a media play ploy to sell the song more ㅋㅋ poor Sandara being stuck in the middle

8. [+11, -3] The group failed because of Park Bom but isn't it also true that Gong Minzy was the one who broke out the calculator and left to survive on her own? I don't think she really has a right to act like a victim in this either

9. [+10, -10] ㅋㅋㅋ Ridiculous. Gong Minzy finds out about the song through the media while they act all sad like they're missing her in the music video without even giving her a chance to participate in the song ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ pretty disappointing as a former fan

10. [+8, -8] They made the song because they missed Minzy? When she doesn't even know about the song? Stop with the nonsense, do they not see what's going on?

Article: CL, "I want to reunite in 20 years like SES... have to manage our stamina"

Source: Ilgan Sports via Naver

1. [+937, -77] So sad, 2NE1's songs were always a must listen for me

2. [+734, -45] 20 years is too long, let's make it 10 years.. ㅠㅠ

3. [+830, -138] They are still one of the girl groups in our country to go down in history. Hope to see them back in 20 years with good music.

4. [+441, -43] Please keep that promise, this group's too good to just let go like this

5. [+73, -14] We'll meet again ㅠㅠ I'll be waiting ㅠㅠ 2NE1 forever ㅠㅠ

6. [+39, -4] Love you 2NE1, you can take as long as you need, I'll be waiting right here until the day we meet again

7. [+50, -9] Not one 2NE1 song to waste... a pity that it ends like this

8. [+55, -12] 'Goodbye'~ such a sad song

Wendy reflects on her heavier past and struggles with eating today


Article: Wendy, "I used to be fat in the past... I feel nervous when I eat a certain amount still"

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+354, -19] People who were originally fat or chubby feel nervous about eating even after losing the weight. When I was in high school, I was short and pretty fat but managed to lose 17 kg and have maintained it so far but I'm starting to lose grip on it now that I'm married and getting older ㅠㅠ

2. [+259, -24] She's just fine and pretty the way she is right now!!!! So please be happy for the time that you are eating ㅠㅠ unni you're too thin right now ㅠ

3. [+157, -6] I feel bad for her, she feels so stressed every time she eats. I lost a lot of weight too and was really obsessive over even a gram of weight gain in case it meant that I was going to go back to my past days... it's hard to eat as much as you want. Even now, I struggle mentally with eating even when I want to and I'm sure my stomach is pretty ruined too ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

4. [+22, -2] Then please leave the mukbang show... I really don't get why she's being like this on a mukbang show

5. [+19, -20] Then why is she on a show that makes you eat...;;;

6. [+15, -5] She's so pretty~ Wendy and Black Pink's Rose are really my eye and ear candy lately~

7. [+14, -1] The rest of us suffer from some sort of diet obsession but it's probably worse for her since she can't just be average but super thin...

8. [+12, -2] I seriously don't understand why she's on a cooking and eating show when she's so obsessed with her eating habits...;;;;

9. [+11, -4] Wendy always seems like such a nice and considerate person on TV so it makes me sad to see her like this. She looked fine even when she was at her highest weight~ cute too ㅎㅎ don't feel too stressed over your weight gain and eat lots and exercise to maintain your health ^^

10. [+11, -1] I was so surprised at how much weight she lost for her last comeback

Source: Dispatch via Naver

1. [+504, -10] Ah I'm so sad ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

2. [+415, -11] 2NE1 Forever...

3. [+408, -15] I'll be waiting for the day you reunite..

4. [+340, -11] I love you

5. [+315, -10] 2NE1!!!!!!!!!

6. [+137, -6] 2NE1 is probably the only girl group where every song on a single album won #1

7. [+125, -3] Their songs remain high quality even until the end... crazy vocals...

8. [+106, -3] Quite the 2NE1-esque song... So sad that it's all ending like this but I trust that you will reunite again. Thank you for everything Park Bom, Dara, CL, Minzy. I'll wish you the best in your individual pursuits. 2NE1 ♥ Blackjacks forever...

9. [+98, -3] I still can't forget their debut stage. The shock of how fresh their concept was. So sad to see them go ㅠㅠ hoping for a day where they will one day reunite!!

10. [+91, -3] Their 21st and last music video 'Goodbye'... so sad. Blackjacks and 2NE1 will forever be together.

How did Kim Sejung fare on 'K-Pop Star 2'?


Article: The singer that BoA overlooked but Yang Hyun Suk noticed

Source: Joongang Ilbo via Nate

Article talks about how Kim Sejung competed on K-Pop Star 2 and how BoA passed on casting her while Yang Hyun Suk saw potential in her and believed she'd grow to be a good singer with the right training.

-

1. [+910, -29] Hul, I was wondering who she was while scrolling down and then saw her current photo and had to scroll back up to compare

2. [+828, -41] Well SM cares about looks and Sejung's looks weren't done forming yet back then

3. [+501, -23] I can see why SM didn't cast her at the time...

4. [+52, -11] Looks like she got some facial contouring and her nose done

5. [+48, -2] You can't compare a singer's eye to a successful producer's eye... nothing to put BoA down over

6. [+44, -0] I think this article was trying to convey that Kim Sejung is successful today despite it all but uh...

7. [+41, -3] Yeah, Yang Hyun Suk saw so much potential in her that Kim Sejung ended up in JellyFish, right? He threw her out after season two was over, don't talk now as if Yang Hyun Suk discovered her only now that she's famous ㅋㅋㅋ so sick of YG's media play, now they're even using Sejung... How about YG media play about how they took Supearls and disbanded them.. ㅋㅋ

8. [+36, -3] No way that's the same person~ come no, no way~

9. [+35, -3] Does Park Jin Young have no poop for eyes then... ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

10. [+33, -0] Honestly, idols these days are all about who produces them, has nothing to do with innate talent anymore

11. [+31, -6] I think anyone who's watched since the first season will know that BoA actually has a better eye for talent than the other two.

12. [+29, -5] Her plastic surgeon revamped her face

13. [+26, -3] Looks like she got some work done too ㅋ

JYP and photographer threaten legal action over spread of rumors regarding Suzy's "lolita pictorial"


Article: First Sulli, IU, and now again... Suzy's 'lolita' pictorial controversial

Source: Herald Econ via Nate

1. [+2,120, -1,742] I first saw this ridiculous claim on Pann and it looks like the journalist is a Pann frequenter herself

2. [+1,958, -1,632] This feels too forced... the photographer is someone who does photos of this emotional type vibe. If everything makes you uncomfortable, how are you able to function in real life at all?

3. [+1,486, -311] ㅋㅋ It doesn't look lolita but rather the setting looks like a barber shop with a hidden brothel

4. [+1,454, -1,249] It's usually the ugly pigs who get pissed over pictorials like this

5. [+533, -276] Lolita concepts seriously disgust me and anybody who participates in it shouldn't be shielded

6. [+407, -135] If you have eyes, you'll realize upon seeing the pictures that there's nothing normal about them

7. [+384, -119] Barber shops are places that mainly men go to... it's a place where you will rarely ever see any women. There used to be a time when young men going through puberty who chanced upon a nuna who worked at the barber shop and the slight touch of her body against his as she washed his hair was enough to arouse him. So knowing that the setting is a male dominated area and for her to be dressed like that in such a setting????? She is totally giving the feel of a barber shop with a hidden brothel. There's no way she posed like that without knowing!!!

8. [+282, -65] The hypocrisy of people... people will hate on IU and Sulli readily, Goo Hara even for just being friends with Sulli, but Suzy gets shielded.

9. [+202, -40] This is worse than IU's scandal. IU's was just lolita but this is a lolita cliche in the setting of a barber shop with a hidden brothel so it gives a prostitution feel as well.

10. [+191, -30] I don't know about the lolita stuff but it's quite obvious that the pictures were taken with sexual intentions.

Article: The reason Suzy's pictorial is swept in controversy

Source: YTN via Nate

1. [+1,392, -428] Tying her hair up with a man's necktie and staring at the camera with glazed eyes with the caption (sorry dad), if that isn't lolita, then what is? ㅋㅋ Posing in a run down barber shop in a short skirt, kneeling, holding her hands in the middle, what's that? If you're too stupid to see any of this stuff, then don't bother shielding her. Suzy's a celebrity who can shoot these things and be protected by her manager and bodyguards but she's feeding a dangerous fantasy of pedophilia to the public that puts other children and women at risk to crime. Stupid Suzy fans, being as stupid as you are is a crime now ㅜㅜ

2. [+1,088, -146] The point of controversy isn't lolita but the setting of it looking like a barber shop with a hidden brothel

3. [+631, -559] But do these pictures look lolita?

4. [+277, -226] Bye

5. [+273, -222] If Sulli took these pictures, netizens would be foaming at the mouth calling it 100% lolita... but since they like Suzy, they're trying to be lenient... you realize your hypocrisy is the most goosebump-inducing, right?

Article: JYP reps, "Suzy's pictorial has nothing to do with lolita... we will be taking strong legal action against personal attacks on her"

Source: Sports Today via Nate

1. [+1,661, -635] I just checked the pictures out... and they totally look lolita, though...? I think there's reason for suspicion depending on how you look at it

2. [+624, -540] JYP could target all the female community sites, Instiz, and Nate and come out with a truck of fatty pigs to sue

3. [+346, -314] All the fatty Pann pigs are probably running around trying to delete their post now

4. [+319, -145] So why did they let Suzy take a pictorial with pictures that could cause reason for controversy...? Apparently the pictorial was something Suzy chose the concept for and participated in. The fact that people are getting lolita and brothel vibes from her photos alone are a problem and not something that JYP should be trying to censor everyone over.

5. [+226, -139] Whether she intended to or not, the public is the one feeling those vibes from her pictures and that's fact ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+184, -114] Does JYP think that just denying it is enough? Her career is highly dependent on the attention and interest of the public and if enough people believe there's reason to say her pictorial has elements of lolita in it, it's not merely enough for just JYP to deny it and then claim legal action. They need to clarify all of our points and explain what's going on!!!

7. [+156, -84] I think it's important to recognize your own mistake and admit to them. You can't just call everyone a hater and threaten to sue them. It's only going to make matters worse.

8. [+148, -79] Well they all end up denying it... IU did, and Sulli did too...

9. [+124, -53] I honestly want to know what the intentions were for taking the pictures that way... this was in no way a "normal" pictorial

10. [+92, -28] Legal action? How is this any different from what Park Geun Hye's administration did? The public is expressing how they feel about something and JYP responds by saying they'll handle it in the court? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ JYP and Park Geun Hye both expect the public to only post what they want them to post

1. [+5,124, -348] I know this is off topic but I wish the photographer Rotta would quit. It's because of ba$tards like him that put more children at risk.

2. [+3,246, -278] I hate ba$tards like Rotta the most;

3. [+4,121, -635] So next time you see a woman talking childishly as aegyo, sue her for promoting lolita concepts

4. [+1,538, -214] Girl groups who dance in school uniforms are also playing up to the lolita fantasy. Fans try to argue that school uniform concepts are innocent but how does that explain the sex appeal that makes men go crazy? ㅋㅋ A girl group is nothing without sex appeal and their school uniforms are designed in a way to be short and revealing while still maintaining that air of innocence.

5. [+421, -116] I checked out Instiz and thousands of comments have been deleted ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Article: Suzy's photographer, "I will not be going easy on copyright infringement, please do not exaggerate the meaning of the photos"

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+451, -142] There's a reason the majority of the public feels the way they do about the photos

2. [+443, -127] I'm really curious... how can anyone view those photos as just innocent? Isn't it obvious why they're controversial?

3. [+414, -137] Exaggerated...? Suzy, her agency, and this photographer are the worst. Even if they really didn't know what vibe the pictures were giving off, the people viewing them are seeing them as lolita and they think just because they say it's not, it's not? Might as well just have said they didn't realize they could be seen that way and just apologize, instead they're threatening legal action ㅋ...

4. [+65, -22] Naw, I think you are going to be sued before us for violation of children's rights...

5. [+62, -19] You have to admit the setting of those photos totally look like a brothel barber shop, right? ㅋㅋ

Article: Suzy's popular pictorial, how did it become the hot potato?

Source: TV Report via Daum

1. [+650, -85] I didn't find the pictorial pictures pretty but rather off putting... it made me question why Suzy took such photos. I guess I wasn't the only one who thought that then.

2. [+570, -62] If this had been IU or Sulli, they would've been hated to dust ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Koreans definitely need to start taking matters like this more seriously

3. [+521, -62] If you don't know why these pictures are problematic, that's a problem in itself

4. [+297, -30] I checked the pictures out and she's deserving of hate. Did they not check out the concepts before taking the photos? Why would Suzy with the nation's first love image agree to taking those photos?

5. [+277, -25] She put out a pictorial and it has every right to be judged as we see fit. The fact that a girl like her chose an old barber shop of all places instead of a hair salon when barber shops in the past were known to run brothels on the side makes it weird. Suzy's an adult now, does she not realize the implications of her actions?

-

Source: Daum

1. [+352, -130] Her pictures looked like a concept of an 80s brothel ㅋㅋ

2. [+303, -115] The pictures weren't pretty to look at but rather off putting. Why did she take them?

3. [+171, -34] It is true that the pictures give off a weird vibe

4. [+159, -24] Is JYP crazy? Do they not realize that Suzy's level is past the point of taking pictures like this?

5. [+120, -13] It's ridiculous that JYP is threatening legal action when the intentions behind those pictures are enough cause for misunderstandings. Just because the public's review of her pictorial isn't what they wanted, they think they can shut everyone up with legal action? How is my opinion that I find her pictorial pictures cheap and not sexy or beautiful at all worthy of being sued over?

Article: What pictures were in Suzy's controversial pictorial... netizens remain angered despite JYP clarification

Source: X Sports News via Daum

1. [+2,923, -911] Why is this even controversial... why do people get bothered over everything;;

2. [+2,349, -914] But why are people throwing a fuss over a pictorial two years old? This is why people hate feminazis so much

3. [+1,806, -862] All the feminazis with nothing to do after eating so they drag out controversies like this

4. [+898, -160] Okay the pictures here might not seem problematic but if you search up pictures from a barber shop, you'll see what we mean... it's a concept of a young girl at a brothel barber shop and they're disgusting. I'm so sick of pictorials doing little girl concepts. Just be like Lady Gaga and Madonna and go all out that emphasize concepts as adult women, why do so many try to make money off of little girl concepts? Suzy's holding crayons in her photos, wearing dad's neckties... IU's agency threatened legal action too, these agencies must think netizens are nothing but fools with the way they're handling things

5. [+505, -64] The barber shop pictures make her look more like a cheap girl than a lolita though... Suzy's face isn't even young looking enough to pull off lolita anyway

6. [+453, -72] Look at the angle of the faucet ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ what is she doing posting like that at a barber shop anyway? ㅋㅋ There are some things you can't shield, but sigh, I guess the photographer is to blame in all this

Pann: Wow the reactions are so different from IU's scandal

1. [+302, -14] People blamed IU saying she should take responsibility for everything since she produced the album even though she didn't produce her music video. Suzy, however, said so herself that she participated in the pictorial concept from choosing the outfits to other things but people are saying the photographer's to blame ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ either hate both or defend both don't choose one or the other when they're the same. I bet if this was Sulli's pictorial, people would've treated her like a mentally disabled drug addict.

2. [+253, -15] JYP seems to be controlling the media right now. There's only one article about Suzy's lolita controversy when there should be so much more. There was an Ailee and Suzy article in the morning and someone mentioned the lolita controversy in the comments and the article was taken down from the main page in just two minutes. JYP needs to focus on giving proper feedback and apologizing for what needs to be apologized for instead of controlling the media like this.

3. [+193, -10] This scandal is worse than IU's though? Especially since Suzy herself said she planned the concepts and even chose the outfits

4. [+85, -2] I honestly didn't like the way IU's scandal turned out too. Ever since IU's lolita controversy, people started treating lolita as if it was just some type of style preference and looked at you weird if you found a problem with it. Suzy's pictures left me speechless however. I think it's only been quiet all this time because it was a personal photobook but imagine if it blew up like IU's scandal did? Her first love image and all that would've been blown away. This is worse than any lolita scandal I've seen because it gives brothel vibes on top of that.

5. [+57, -2] Posts about Suzy's lolita keep disappearing;;
