1. [+924, -80] Ramsay hyung... we know you're lying when you say Korean beer is delicious ㅜ

2. [+631, -25] Gordon Ramsay's fame started a boom in the popularity of Korean chefs here too. He also benchmarked the idea of being a vicious critic. Most of the early Korean food shows had vicious critics although they've been watered down for the most part now. A lot of the chefs at the time tried hard to mimic Gordon Ramsay by looking down on their juniors and anyone below them in status. It wasn't until chefs like Baek Jong Won who came out with the more soft ajusshi image that diversified everything. Before, it truly was a sh*t show between chefs to see who could copy Gordon Ramsay better... you can't ignore his influence in the Korean food TV world.

3. [+583, -29] He has 11 Michelin stars... there's no chef in Korea who can contend against him

4. [+48, -6] I actually know a lot of foreigners who enjoy Korean beer

5. [+46, -3] I live overseas too and foreigners say that Korean beer is delicious. Australians are quite known for enjoying wine and beer and when I give anyone 'Cass', they normally enjoy it. There's a popular beer brand here called 'Iron Jack' that Australians have been liking and it's similar to 'Cass' in the way that it goes down. It's not completely crazy that Gordon Ramsay actually likes Korean beer... My Australian boss doesn't understand why Koreans hate their own beer.

6. [+44, -1] He likes Korean beer because it doesn't overpower the taste of food. Honestly, with his temper, I would expect him to turn down the CF if he really didn't like the taste of it.

7. [+33, -1] Gordon Ramsay has always liked beers like 'Budweiser' that don't overpower the taste of food. Korean beer is lighter to complement the heavier flavors of our cuisine, which is right up his alley. Don't play dumb, you all drink 'Cass' with your late night samgyupsal...

8. [+24, -2] Anyone hating Korean beer is just trying to look special by saying foreign beer is better. Korean beer is decent...

9. [+17, -1] Foreigners usually like Korean beer, it's always the Koreans who are putting it down...

10. [+15, -0] I remember they did a blind test on beer to foreigners and 'Cass' won #1. Koreans are just too biased against our own beer that we actually believe it.

INFINITE postpones year-end comeback to January



Article: [Exclusive] 6 member INFINITE comeback postpones comeback within the year... "Postponed to next January"

Source: OSEN via Naver

1. [+226, -7] It's a good decision because the year-end is usually all about award ceremonies so a lot of the music shows cancel broadcasts. Even if they did have a comeback, they'd only get a few shows before having to prepare for the year-end stuff. I think it's better that they focus on year-end activities while pushing back their comeback.

2. [+174, -5] There are no music shows during the year-end anyway so it's better that they postpone it to January

3. [+167, -6] Finally a third album

4. [+138, -3] We'll be waiting

5. [+122, -4] I'll wait forever ♡♡♡

6. [+51, -2] At least put out a digital single during the year-end and comeback in January with a full album. Please give us lots to look forward to in the new year.

7. [+55, -5] Honestly, they could've had their comeback already by now if Hoya never left... It's the 6 remaining members who have to deal with everything now to keep INFINITE, I don't get why fans are nagging at the members for unfollowing Hoya. I was going to support Hoya but choose not to because of his fans... How can these Inspirits act so cruelly to the members who are trying so hard to protect INFINITE? And if you're a true Inspirit, if Hoya ever released a song at the same time as INFINITE, all of your energy should go towards supporting INFINITE. No matter how much we said it was okay that Hoya left, it was still a big shock to us. It upsets me that the end of 7FINITE amounts to nothing like this...

8. [+48, -3] You fans would've been pissed if they did have a comeback during the year-end and didn't get to see them much because of the other stuff going on ㅋㅋ might as well postpone it

Jung Eunji looks visibly shaken at her drama conference


Article: Jung Eunji 'sullen facial expression'

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+910, -86] Why does her face look so aged

2. [+719, -86] What happened to her face

3. [+624, -125] ugly

4. [+73, -7] She looks like this because her production conference received a bomb threat from a man who has been threatening A Pink for a while now. Don't leave any hate comments. I'm sure she's already feeling really bad right now.

5. [+65, -23] But Jung Eunji... is seirously ugly ㅜㅜ

6. [+46, -5] Apparently her conference received a bomb threat from an A Pink anti. It was a mess with investigations and bomb detection dogs everywhere. Of course she's going to look upset. The journalist should've written the reason in the title.

7. [+34, -9] Did she do something to her face...?

8. [+31, -5] She's ugly smiling and looks even uglier without a smile..

9. [+28, -13] I'd look upset like that too if someone dressed me in this

10. [+22, -7] She's normally a big smiler but she seems to be struggling with all the bomb threats... She probably looks like this because she feels to blame for the event being postponed and everything.

11. [+20, -3] She's only made it this far for her songs and 'Reply', I doubt she'll have much left of a career in her late twenties

12. [+16, -4] The article needs to explain that A Pink received a bomb threat there... why would anyone expect her to be smiling?

Red Velvet and Black Pink's outfit concepts are too similar?










Article: 'Too similar' Fans debate over the outfit concepts between Black Pink and Red Velvet

Source: Joongang Ilbo via Nate

1. [+488, -9] Red Velvet's coordi is just bad at her job... It's not they're actresses, there's no way that they had no idea that another girl group wore the same clothing even if they did receive it as a sponsorship. It's either they never bothered to check or knew and just dressed them in it anyway. She has no pride in her job...

2. [+423, -6] When will the coordi ever do her job? This isn't the first time either... ㅠㅠ

3. [+328, -29] Isn't it just Gucci?

4. [+58, -12] But you have to admit that the clothes looks different depending on who's wearing it ㅋㅋ Black Pink makes it look like a real luxury brand whereas Red Velvet looks like mall clothes, probably because Red Velvet has a more girl next door image ㅋㅋㅋ either way, YG has always been known to invest a lot in clothes and dress their artists well so ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+55, -10] Black Pink definitely pull off the clothes better

6. [+48, -8] Black Pink looks way better in them ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+47, -2] Whether they copied or it was just a coincidence, Red Velvet's coordi needs to be fired...

8. [+45, -8] Black Pink looks like they're wearing luxury sponsorships whereas Red Velvet looks like a knock off...

9. [+43, -10] I know nothing about fashion and even I can tell that Black Pink pulled it off better. Even if it's just Gucci, it matters so much who's wearing it.

10. [+35, -2] Seeing them compared side by side like this, the Black Pink kids have a more celebrity force to them. The members look so classy.

11. [+33, -2] Black Pink is known as the human Gucci. They weren't sponsored the clothes, YG has the power to pick and choose whatever clothing they want thanks to GD.

12. [+30, -2] YG really does invest a lot in Black Pink's outfits, especially accessories. 2NE1 went a bit too over the top but Black Pink is styled to accentuate their bodies and mesh with their images.

13. [+28, -0] The clothes do look similar but Black Pink looks classier

14. [+23, -2] It's hard to call it a mistake but there's too many instances of an overlap...

15. [+22, -0] Shows that just simply wearing luxury brands doesn't give you a classy look. Gucci looks overwhelming on Red Velvet, kind of like how Park Seo Joon himself as an actor looks cool but dress him in a Gucci suit and it makes you laugh. Following trends is fine but you have to know what matches your image. Red Velvet would match clothes that are a bit more younger and feminine.

A psychiatrist analyzes Sulli and Yoo Ah In's SNS behavior



Article: A psychiatrist analyzes Yoo Ah In and Sulli's SNS pattern

Source: Sports Kyunghyang via Nate

Psychiatrist: "People think that they're simply acting in a way to arouse controversy and attract attention through SNS but this has more to do with impulsiveness. They're highly impulsive people and they don't think ahead enough as to the consequences of their actions. If they have to say something, they can't hold back. In the past, Yoo Ah In was an actor famous for writing sensical posts and he got a lot of praise from his fans for it. That relationship became conditioned for him to believe that tweeting = attention.

Sulli's SNS pattern is more simple compared to Yoo Ah In's. She has no message that she wants to convey. Her controversial posts are usually bizarre pictures. She's simply 'hyperactive'. People who are hyperactive can't stay still and enjoy playing pranks on others."

-

1. [+642, -82] Yoo Ah In sometimes says sensical things but Sulli's just an attention wh*re, probably because she grew up where everyone praised her for the littlest things. She knows that she's pretty and that people will let her get away with anything she wants.

2. [+422, -28] I feel like Sulli does it more just because she knows it gets a rise out of people ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+353, -46] Conclusion = both are attention wh*res

4. [+38, -2] Sulli's probably sulking that she's been pushed back by Han Seohee

5. [+33, -1] I'll summarize it: Yoo Ah In is an attention wh*re who thinks he's woke, Sulli is an attention wh*re who has no thoughts

6. [+29, -3] I feel like Yoo Ah In wouldn't have been a very sociable person if he wasn't a celebrity

7. [+13, -1] So the psychiatrist is basically saying Yoo Ah In has issues with impulsiveness and Sulli's hyperactive

8. [+13, -2] So medically they're both attention wh*res

9. [+12, -1] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's hilarious to see someone trying to use big medical terms like 'conditioned learning' and 'hyperactivity' to basically describe what is an attention wh*re ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+10, -1] Did we really need a psychiatrist's analyzation of this though ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
