Yoona proves she's more than just a pretty face on 'Hyori's Home Stay'

Article: Yoona, sorry for labeling you as a princess

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+376, -16] She's so pretty but doesn't act prim about it at all. Such a hard worker! She knows how to do so many different things ㅠㅠ

2. [+365, -15] Cleaned the kitchen and the bathroom toilet all without having to be prompted. Everything about her is hard working, even her looks ❤ Talk about a goddess ㅎㅎ

3. [+301, -21] Pretty, caring, good cook... as a fellow woman, she makes me feel so jealous and envious... Guess I'll just make myself some kimchi pancakes today since it's raining

4. [+48, -3] I actually have a problem with the assumption that pretty girls all act like "princesses" ㅋㅋㅋ just because a pretty girl is shy or quiet doesn't mean she thinks she's a princess.. it's why so many pretty girls go out of their way to act more outgoing or tough because of those assumptions..

5. [+41, -6] Yoona has never had a princess disease. Ever since her rookie days, she's always given her all on variety shows and actively participated in everything.

6. [+35, -2] I remember at the Baeksang awards last year, Kim Yoo Jung was giving an award speech and Yoona realized she was in the frame and distracting from her so she inched her way out. Made me think that was so nice of her.

7. [+22, -0] She's not just a pretty face, she's a hard worker at everything she's tasked to do. There's a reason she's loved so much by her fans.

8. [+22, -0] I also thought she was just a pretty face but I was mistaken~

9. [+21, -1] Yeah, a lot of people like to assume Yoona's personality for her because she's pretty (how she's emotional or acting pretty for the cameras) so I'm glad she was able to prove she's more than that. I fell for her after seeing what a hard worker she was ㅎㅎ Glad she's going with season 3 as well.

10. [+8, -1] ㅋㅋ She's definitely not the gentle type ㅋㅋ she's not shy, she says what's on her mind, she doesn't hesitate, she knows what she needs to be doing ㅋ she has a very easygoing personality, I like that ㅋㅋ


Big Bang's song release during TOP's service called into question

Article: [Exclusive] Big Bang's new song under controversy due to TOP... Yongsan checking whether he violated clause prohibiting soldiers in service with additional jobs

Source: Asia Econ via Nate

1. [+499, -32] What a mess

2. [+485, -69] I was actually surprised when I saw this song was #1. How can people listen to a song sung by a kid who used drugs? Can we please have the decency to skip songs made by criminals and plagiarizers?

3. [+369, -55] TOP's stupid fangirls are so busy downvoting everything right now. I feel so sad for them. Why don't they do this service for him too?

4. [+38, -12] I'm a man and I'm not trying to shield him or anything but tons of male celebrities will pre-film movies or dramas that are later released when they're in service so why is this case controversial??

5. [+19, -7] It's a clear violation, this is a mess. He should be reflecting.

6. [+16, -5] I was wondering if this was a violation too. I remember when Psy had to serve his second army service, his releases were deemed controversial at the time too.

7. [+16, -6] Tsk tsk tsk, YG just greedy for that money...

8. [+12, -6] Not trying to shield him but what about all the actors who pre-film movies and still take the income when the movie's released?

9. [+8, -1] I heard U-KISS Kim Kibum set up a separate company when he was in service and basically had a second job paid through that. Not sure what's so wrong about TOP's case.

10. [+6, -2] A lot of other singers have released pre-recorded songs after going into service, or even had CFs be released after. I don't think those were ever called into controversy.

1. [+86, -17] What the ㅋㅋㅋㅋ so many singers have released songs like this all this time, why is it a problem now? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+76, -14] 'Flower Road' was recorded during 'MADE', no?? So it was produced in 2015-2016?? And TOP enlisted in 2017, so where's the controversy? It's not a violation of anything. And it's not like they're promoting this song on TV..

3. [+71, -14] So much fuss over a song produced in 2015 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+70, -13] The song was produced in 2015 and 2016, seems like someone didn't like the fact that the song is charting well right now

5. [+64, -11] Why stay quiet when all the other singers did the same thing? This is so random

6. [+44, -6] Everyone stayed quiet when JYJ, Lee Seung Gi, or Wheesung did the same thing but of course it's controversial because it's Big Bang ㅋㅋ the only controversy here is the one made up by the journalist

7. [+42, -7] So many cases like TOP... what's the issue? ㅎ

8. [+41, -6] People are just jealous that it's doing well ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ if they suddenly say that it's not allowed, then all the singers who've released songs during service should be investigated too ㅋㅋㅋㅋ they said before that pre-recorded songs were fine so why the change? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ


Lee Tae Im declares she is retiring her career

Article: Lee Tae Im declares she's retiring "It has been so difficult... I'm going to live a normal life now"

Source: Ilgan Sports via Nate

1. [+311, -52] She's probably going to get married

2. [+272, -35] Not sure if the timing of her retirement is a coincidence or not but it's quite fishy... anyway, she made her decision so I hope she is happier from now on

3. [+249, -44] I guess her past scandals really hurt her... It was probably difficult to endure it mentally with all the hate comments she gets. You've suffered a lot.

4. [+29, -4] Seeing as how her agency hasn't been able to contact her, this retirement was a one sided decision. She always seems to make decisions emotionally than logically.

5. [+13, -2] Her declaration is so short, there must be something difficult going on. Nobody is perfect and everybody makes mistakes, so I hope she lives the life that she wants. She endured a lot in the industry.

6. [+13, -1] I don't believe her. She said so herself after that whole Yewon scandal that she's not leaving the industry because she's already committed to it. I think it has more to do with the MB scandal going on right now... or she's pregnant.

7. [+13, -0] The MB family is finally under investigation... it's not because she's implicated with them, is it??

8. [+43, -3] Retiring only after MB's crimes are being unveiled and his son's secrets are uncovered? Talk about timing

9. [+43, -4] The coincidence of her retiring at the same time the MB investigations are closing

10. [+37, -4] I guess the MB son is getting arrested


(TN: Lee Tae Im is the rumored girlfriend of Lee Shi Hyung, the son of former president Lee Myung Bak (MB), both of whom are under criminal investigation)


Source: Nate

1. [+545, -36] Well the industry's infamous for being tough to endure. Just wish her well.

2. [+490, -66] The timing of this is fishy...

3. [+335, -38] Guess she's getting married

4. [+65, -8] This has nothing to do with Myung Bak's son, does it????!!!!!!!!!

5. [+52, -5] I bet you she'll come back once all this drama with Lee Shi Hyung dies down. The timing of her retirement is oddly fishy.

6. [+49, -7] Is it because of the son?

7. [+43, -4] First she gets caught up with his son, now she's retiring ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+31, -5] Are you getting married to him?

9. [+27, -4] I'm sure she enjoyed life when she was out on a yacht with Lee Shi Hyung and Kim Moo Sung's son in law... just google it, the pictures tell all what the three of them were doing. As if this retirement is on her terms at all...

10. [+18, -1] She probably came upon a ton of money to retire off of... maybe not marriage but a man who's taking care of her. The timing of this is unfortunate though... considering the MB scandal and all~~~


Dok2 moves in to a luxury hotel room

Article: "130-pyeong all to himself" Dok2 moves into a top luxury hotel room

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+1,086, -62] I like him so much better than all the damn celebrities who whine about money on TV... Yoo Jae Suk's house is worth over 3 billion won too

2. [+926, -26] He spends money like he's leaving this earth soon

3. [+709, -39] I kept saying "wow" the entire time watching... just in awe... how amazing

4. [+120, -1] If Dok2 makes this much, GD must be out of this world

5. [+81, -1] I heard that hotel room costs 200 million won a month, isn't that a lot of money even if he's Dok2..? It's not like he's a chaebol with an infinite amount of money in his bank account... unless the hotel is sponsoring it for him?

6. [+60, -1] Dok2 spends money like water but there's no need to worry about him... he makes over 3 billion won a year

7. [+55, -4] A lot of the hip hop songs that we know were written by Dok2... a lot of Dynamic Duo's too

8. [+53, -7] It's hard to hate him despite this lavishness

9. [+47, -1] I can't imagine how much he makes

10. [+46, -6] He lived in a container box after his parents' business went bankrupt and that's what made him determined to become rich. He seems to have achieved that.


Oh Yeon Seo hopes to get married in the next two years

Article: Oh Yeon Seo, "Marriage? The cost of living is too high... I'll get married in about two years"

Source: TV Report via Nate

"(My new goal) is to get married at 34. A wedding is a huge event so I think it's important to treat it carefully. It's true that getting married is more difficult now due to the higher cost of living."

1. [+712, -36] A top star is trying to tell us that she can't get married because the cost of living is too high?

2. [+582, -31] Marriage is expensive if maybe she's trying to get married to a chaebol family and has to save up for all the wedding gifts for the in-laws?

3. [+484, -16] She says things that are unnecessary...

4. [+32, -0] A top star who makes thousands off of TV shows and CFs is saying that it's too expensive in this economy to get married... what does that make the rest of us? It doesn't make me respect her, it makes me think she takes the rest of us as a joke ㅠㅠ

5. [+32, -2] Why would anything be expensive for her unless she's trying to have a huge wedding with a huge chaebol...? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Ridiculous

6. [+28, -1] You make more than the rest of us make in a month off of one event appearance...

7. [+24, -0] It's not uncommon for celebrities to act like they're "one of us" with money concerns ㅋㅋㅋ you always see those rich stars on variety shows acting like they're hesitant to spend a buck here or there. They must think that we can relate to them better that way or something.

8. [+16, -0] What a joke ㅋㅋㅋ Where are you living that the cost of living is too high for you? Gangnam? ㅎㅎㅎ In an apartment bigger than 50-pyeong? ㅋㅋㅋ And what car are you driving? A luxury import? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+15, -2] Ah... she's really dumb

10. [+15, -0] If only the brain was equal to one's looks

11. [+14, -0] Well maybe she wants to live in Tower Palace..

12. [+13, -1] Why're you all being so mean~ it certainly is expensive to aspire to live in an 80-pyeong fully decorated luxury apartment with a Han River view, poor her ㅜㅜ

13. [+10, -0] Just sounds like she's waiting for a wealthy man
