Casting talk: Oh Yeon Seo and Chun Woo Hee for 'Cheese in the Trap'

Article: Grab the crown of the 'Cheese'... 'Suzy vs Oh Yeon Seo vs Chun Woo Hee'

TV Report via Naver

1. [+26,281, -1,451] I don't care if either Chun Woo Hee or Oh Yeon Seo take the role, that's up to them, but Suzy needs to stay out;

2. [+23,042, -639] Don't care about anything else, just make sure it's an actual actor..

3. [+18,415, -879] Suzy's so random in there..

4. [+12,880, -646] Chun Woo Hee synchronizes amazingly with the character;; and she's a good actress so she can really bring out the emotional complexity of Hongseol

5. [+3,377, -314] Isn't the obvious choice here Chun Woo Hee?

6. [+2,544, -106] This is starting to feel like Nodame with all this ruckus over the female lead casting

7. [+2,380, -67] The 'Cheese' casting is not a crown but a cup of poison... the webtoon's just too good so people will have huge expectations.

8. [+2,495, -378] Suzy hasn't even confirmed anything yet and with all this rejection she's getting from just being mentioned definitely means she's not a fit for the role

9. [+2,273, -238] The order of best fit: Chun Woo Hee > Oh Yeon Seo >> Suzy...

OSEN via Nate

1. [+1,440, -136] Let's just go with Chun Woo Hee..

2. [+1,160, -62] I really want either Oh Yeon Seo or Chun Woo Hee to pick up the role! They look so alike to Hongseol and have the acting skills to back it up! Go with an actor, not an idol!

3. [+1,058, -255] Oh Yeon Seo's not a great fit... she lacks that mysterious aura and doesn't look intelligent but rather light.. Chun Woo Hee's perfect!

4. [+90, -11] I bet Suzy will get the role in the end. Why is it so hard for people to pick a good actor for an acting role and a good singer for a singing role?

5. [+79, -1] At this point, I don't even want the drama adaptation. The scriptwriter's whatever.. and it's probably going to end up like some joke of a campus couple plot like Nodame.

6. [+78, -13] Physically, Oh Yeon Seo fits Hongseol the best... the pupils, the hair color, eyebrow shape, that characteristic facial expression

7. [+73, -15] Please, please make it Chun Woo Hee!!!!!!!!!!!! Suzy can't act!!!!!!!!!!!!

8. [+65, -3] Imagine if Lee Yeon Hee got the role in the end, that'd be hilarious ㅋㅋ


[Instiz/Pann] Girl's Day's 'Ring My Bell' sounds similar to two songs?

Instiz: Girl's Day's new song 'Ring My Bell' plagiarism suspicions (audio clips in source link, AUTOPLAY)

Girl's Day - Ring My Bell
Lyrics: Woo Tae Woon, Long Candy, The Channels
Composers: Homeboy, Radio Galaxy, Long Candy
Arrangement: Radio Galaxy, Eastwest
(All Duble Sidekick producers)

GI - ㄱ
Lyrics/Composer/Arrangement: Beatamin
(Made up of Nassun and JS, disbanded now to just JS who is under Brave Brothers)


"Hul, you can't deny the similarities"

"I didn't know it was GI's song but Girl's Day's did sound familiar when I first heard it."

"They're exactly similar, actually."

"Eh? They really are similar. And it's my first time hearing both songs."

"Am I the only one reminded of the Grasshopper Song?"

"Basically a difference in speed...?"

"Hul, how can you deny this? ㅋㅋㅋ"

"...? They're just the same songs ㅠㅠ"

"The chorus especially has grounds for plagiarism suspicions..."

"They're similar but I don't know if it's similar enough to call plagiarism..."

Girl's Day - Ring My Bell
Bestie - Excuse me

"So apparently the reason the songs are similar is because they're by the same producer but another person said that Bestie's song is also a plagiarism of Ariana Grande's which Girl's Day then also copied ㅋㅋ and how are they going to explain GI's ㄱ then? ㅋㅋ"


1. [+68, -13] (Production information for Bestie's Excuse Me) The reason the two sounds sound similar is because the production team is from the same company. There's a composer who worked on both songs listed in the production credits. Don't start a witch hunt. Even if the song was plagiarized, it's the composer's fault, not Girl's Day's ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+62, -11] The melody is different ㅋㅋ Compare the actual notes before you start accusing plagiarism, this is how you get sued

3. [+55, -9] It's the same composer, why would he plagiarize himself...?

4. [+31, -2] Not at all

5. [+25, -2] Well they're by the same composer...


[Instiz] Fan(?) makes AOA's Mina cry at fan signing

Instiz: AOA Mina got hate from a fan at fan signing

1. At the July 4th Apgujung fan signing, Mina suddenly started looking sad, which lasted up to the closing until it looked like she was to the point of tears.

2. At the July 5th fan signing, Mina fan asked why she cried the day before or if she was sick and Mina said that she got hate.

3. At a radio show today, Mina was talking about how the members all cried after winning #1 except her and Choa said, "But you cried in the car", to which Mina responded, "Not because we won #1 but because a fan yelled at me.."

4. After hearing this, fans in the AOA gallery investigated the issue and found that a fan/anti had probably whispered hate to her or wrote it on a post it note while getting an autograph from Mina between 8:52~8:55. Although most speculated posts as to what she heard were deleted, some claimed:

Fan: How many years were you a trainee?
Mina: Around ? years
Fan: A singer should be good at singing, you should practice before trying to look pretty or I'm telling Facebook.


"Aigoo, how upsetting for her ㅜㅜ"

"It's not like the fan's wrong but there are nicer ways she could've said... why say it like that?"

"A fan who went all the way to a fan signing hurt her like that?"

"How can you say that to your own singer?"

"The fan's right but there are nicer ways to say it.. why hurt your own favorite artist and make her uncomfortable? Especially if you're a big enough of a fan to go to a fan signing..."

"The fan's right but.. ㅠㅠ Say it nicely.."

"Aigoo.. a fan is a source of strength to a singer. Why say it like that even though what she said is right ㅠㅠ"

"Must be uspetting to hear that at your own fan signing..."

"So many different ways the fan could've said it.."

"She's the one who bought an album to get into the fan signing ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ"

"It's so hard to even get into a fan signing and you get in and hurt your favorite artist?;"

"I wonder how that fan feels seeing these pictures? Why go out of your way to hurt her like that as a fan?"


Source: Pann

1. [+23, -4] Hul;;;; how can you say that to someone's face;;;; so cruel. I get that the fan's giving her advice to practice her singing more but judging by her facial expression, I don't think that's all she said. There's no way she should look that scared. Just what more did she say...

2. [+21, -3] Doesn't matter whether she's a good singer or not, just what did she say to her that she cries at a fan signing like that...

3. [+21, -3] People whining about her singing need to realize that she's the rapper in AOA and she was originally the bass player in the AOA Black unit... she used to practice the bass in her trainee days all night to the point where she'd just fall asleep in tears with her bass still in her arms. And you dare say that to her? None of you could even put in half of the effort Mina has put in;;;; Mina-ya, don't be hurt

4. [+9, -1] I remember Seolhyun was hurt at an old fan signing too when a fan skipped her line saying she didn't want her autograph... and Seolhyun after that kept asking everyone who their favorite member was and stuff, it was sad to see. Now Mina... can't imagine hearing that stuff from a fan you know came all the way to your fan signing to say ㅠ

5. [+8, -0] Yeah, okay, I admit Mina needs singing practice. She's the rapper of the group but I don't even konw if she's good at that either. But you know this? Mina thought she'd debut in a band as a bass player but ended up in AOA. So fine, she needs singing practice, but to say that to someone's face at their fan signing? Inappropriate.


SNSD holds comeback showcase

Article: SNSD "The 8 of us banded together tighter after Jessica left, became stronger"

Source: Mydaily via Nate

1. [+715, -163] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ This proves that Jessica was basically nothing in the group and ended up like she did by acting out. You know when the most pathetic moment for a person is? When you thought your group would fail without you but they're doing even better. Fighting to the eight members.

2. [+646, -85] I seriously wonder how Krystal feels right now

3. [+523, -82] Indirect diss

4. [+73, -28] You really can't tell that they're missing a member ㅋㅋ

5. [+63, -23] Good riddance, do well to the 8


Article: SNSD "Changes as an even number group? We have to have two in the center"

Source: X Sports News via Naver

1. [+285, -31] She half assed her dances anyway, better that she's out

2. [+233, -22] There isn't a huge difference just because they're missing a member

3. [+213, -18] It is annoying having one member leave because they have to change the song parts, choreography, where they stand for all of their previous songs.

4. [+12, -2] Any group with over 6 members usually shows no difference with one member missing

5. [+11, -4] So Taeyeon's basically saying it's become harder to build their choreography because they're even numbers ㅋㅋㅋ She's showing quite the temper


Article: SNSD "The members in public relationships? Had no influence on the album at all"

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+179, -27] What influence would it have? It's not like they're teens anymore, they're in their late twenties, nothing wrong with dating. They can date all they want, it won't influence their album as long as their music is good.

2. [+156, -26] It'd be worse to not be able to date at their age.

3. [+145, -28] Well they've gone through it all and I think their fans are understanding as well


Source: Naver

1. [+819, -91] SNSD songs have always been so addictive ㅎ Hit daebak like you always have, SNSD

2. [+741, -82] Their new song is so exciting, SNSD let's hit daebakㅠㅠ!!!!!!!

3. [+679, -87] The song is crazy, it's seriously daebak

4. [+632, -74] I keep finding myself humming the song after hearing it once

5. [+566, -71] Song's great ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Let's do this, Sones!!!!

6. [+136, -25] This summer's all about SNSD... the song's good, 'Party' is their best yet

7. [+128, -25] Public friendly song, it's good and a daebak in the works ^^

8. [+121, -23] The song's jjang, perfect fit for the summer! Exciting


Got7's Junior talks about his acting in 'My Love Eundong'

Article: 'Eundong-ah' Got7 Junior, "I didn't want to be embarrassed playing Joo Jin Mo's child role"

Source: X Sports News via Naver

1. [+3,170, -37] He's the model rookie. Good mindset but I mostly like that he's a good actor too.

2. [+2,842, -38] His scenes were short but teen Hyun Soo left the most lasting impression on me... and now reading this interview, I see that he's humble as well. I wish to see more of his acting.

3. [+2,446, -27] His acting was great! Started watching 'Eundong' after falling for Junior ㅎㅎ

4. [+2,055, -22] Natural acting and really pulled off the emotional bits as well~ A rising star to look forward to~

5. [+339, -2] Realized now that his stage name is Junior because his name is Park Jin Young

6. [+337, -1] His acting left an impression. I even had to look up who this actor was because I was that curious.

7. [+329, -1] Probably wouldn't have continued watching the drama if not for Junior-ssi. He really set the drama off to a good start.

8. [+321, -0] He's not your traditional handsome face but like Kim Soo Hyun in "Will it snow on Christmas", he has a type of charm that makes you fall for him bit by bit
