What is going on with Sooyoung and Won Bin?


My inbox is flooding with a lot of people still confused about the Sooyoung/Won Bin scandal (whether it's media play, real, etc).

What happened was that on Christmas, Dispatch announced on their Twitter that they will be releasing a 'mega' scandal on January 1st. "Dispatch juniors, we have finally begun the countdown. Let's begin the New Year with a delicious dish of bean sprout soup! D-6, anticipation!"

Excited netizens began making up all sorts of pairings as to who the scandal could be about, leading Dispatch to respond, "Too much imagination is bad for your health. There's a lot of variety in the responses to Dispatch's January 1st release. What I'm worried about is there being an unfortunate sacrifice becoming embroiled in the mess..."

Soon after, people started naming Sooyoung because of SNSD's comeback, making her the 'unfortunate sacrifice'.

Dispatch then tweeted, "What in the world is going on? Why Won Bin? Why Sooyoung? Rumors are just rumors. Confirm the facts with our release."

Unfortunately, the rumor had already spread to the point where it took over search rankings before finally hitting the media.

There were some that tried to trace the rumor back and eventually found that it originated from the MBC drama gallery on DC Gallery (another popular netizen community), which is basically a forum full of 20 something women stanning male actors and are also anti-SNSD for the most part, so some of you were right on with the scandal possibly being sabotage.

That's about as far as I've followed, which just leaves the waiting as to what Dispatch actually has planned for January 1st. (Everyone is seriously holding their breaths over this!)

    ReplyDelete
  17. OMG these antis are really something, creating a baseless scandal rumor to sabotage a comeback. Very cunning!

    ReplyDelete
  18. lol at dispatch. they're such attention whores.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I feel so bad for Sooyoung.. what some antis can do :/

    ReplyDelete
  20. Antis need to get a life? God fans aren't any better. Sones are the most idiot and delusional fans.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm not going to argue with you on Sones being the "most idiot and delusional fans" because it's your opinion (though I'm a sone and I keep myself in check a lot) but it's no doubt that antis need to get a life lol Why spend your precious time on the people you hate?

    ReplyDelete
  22. There are always some idiot and delusional fans in the fandoms. Don't generalize Sones.

    ReplyDelete
  23. So basically SM did some media play before SNSD's comeback and it totally backfired because Won Bin's agency is really good at shading

    now SM is trying to make Sooyoung the victim of all this

    any other time I'd believe that antis started this, but not right before their comeback since SM does similar media play EVERY TIME they comeback

    ReplyDelete
  24. Did you read or did you read?

    ReplyDelete
  25. well excuse me for having an opinion


    the shit that goes on behind the scenes as far as media play is concerned is unbelievable


    be a little more open minded about the things you read and try to look at this situation from an unbiased point of view

    1. How was that unbiased?

  26. I think if it was SM doing the media play, they would've chosen a better candidate.
    It's obvious that everyone knows about Won bin's 'godly' status, so anybody who uses him would be asking for suicide.
    I doubt SM would do that.


    Looks more like the work of some ignorant spiteful people o:

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yeah, your opinion sounds really unbiased. Irony at it's finest.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I just get annoyed when people believe anything they read without questioning it twice.
    SNSD (like almost any idol group) has a history of doing media play right before a comeback.
    Unless something else pops up in day or two, then yeah, this was SM's work.

  29. liars ....sm how made the rumor.....

  30. SBS Gayo streaming live now:

  31. maybe the scandal is won bin is gay... oh yes I still hope won bin is gay just to see k netizens disappointed that they adore gay god

    ReplyDelete
  32. when did they do it and what kind of media play? (serious question, I'm really curious)

    ReplyDelete
  33. prolly sm trying to hype up snsd comeback

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have very little respect for Dispatch because they seem to thrive on this attention that people give to "scandals." While I am curious to know what sort of scandal they'll be exposing for the entire world to see in a few days, I don't get why they have to build anticipation of it. Just release it and report on it as it should be done.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm confused too lol what kind of media play could SME possibly do that would end up linking Sooyoung and Won Bin together lol.

    ReplyDelete
  36. TBH they would look really good together lol.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Umm every social media site that releases gossip does publicity stunts like this. It increases traffic, makes their information more desired.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Out of all the members, why Sooyoung though? Not to say any member is okay... but you think they would go with a more "high profile" member... I feel bad for her, she probably got so much hate... and Wonbin's agency pretty much dissed SNSD too... ouch.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Well, many could not cope with it and killed themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  40. It's obvious this is NOT media play by SM. Their kind of SM-Dispatch media play: Shin Sekyung - Jonghyun, Taecyeon - Jessica, Yunho - Ara. They will release "paparazzi" pic and/or claimed they're only friends. Do you think they're stupid enough to involved someone like Won Bin? or even dare to dream Won Bin will agree to pretend to be Sooyoung's close friend? Seriously, his agency even throwing a shade at SNSD lmao. It's a common sense, everyone know how godly Won Bin is in Korea... There's no way this rumor is not going to "backfired", unless that's the intention: to sabotage.

    Also, in before you're calling anyone who believe this is not SM's media play is a delusional Sone, netizenbuzz already stated that netizens tracked back and the rumor is originated from K-actors stans DC gall who hates SNSD... so unless SM is that smart to plan the rumor in a forum full of SNSD haters...

    ReplyDelete
  41. I can't decide which is sadder: starting a rumor to sabotage SNSD or the fact that Sooyoung was the easiest target because she's taken Hyoyeon's place as the least attractive member.

    ReplyDelete
  42. OMG non-idols' fans are worst than delusional idol's fangirls.Lol is this make sense?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think they choosing the right target.....if they choose yuri, yoona, taeyeon or jess...i dont think the netizenn will go crazy like this, seo ia anti boy for this moment n she so pure. sunny, hyo wasnt right...n some snsd antis like hyo too....so hyo is safe. Tfanny rumor s with nickhun.....only sooyoung left
    I go thru some comments ..hyo always favor by blackjack which as at the same time hates snsd.
    I mjust thinkng....major hyo haters came from sone base despite their motto...love nine....or else this girl will win dtws 2 for slight diff of votes....

    ReplyDelete
  44. I can't believe SNSD has been around this long. But then again I'm not surprised because there are a lot of stupid people in this world. Also Won Bin is too good for that biatch how dare they even put them in the same sentence. That HO isn't worthy. LOL @ SM LOL @ SNSD and LOL @ their fans

    ReplyDelete
  45. Whaa? Least attractive? I always thought Sooyoung was the most gorgeous member out of the lot. D:

    ReplyDelete
  46. You sir, get my vote for best comment XD

    ReplyDelete
  47. lol You have no right to act like you feel bad for k-celebrities when you're one of the people here who insult and bash them day and night. You're part of the trash netizens who ruin other people's lives for fun. Please gtfo, the world would get better without you. and bring your other fake accounts with you.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I really commend SNSD for being so clean for the past 5 years. They really never had a (actual) scandal, no photo, nothing. That's seriously amazing because I'm sure the media would've ate up anything negative about them. Bravo.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I read your comment twice and I still have no idea what the heck you're trying to say.


    So far, all I've got is that:


    - Sooyoung is the right target
    - Seohyun is pure
    - Hyoyeon is loved by antis and Blackjacks
    - Tiffany is rumored to be dating Nichkhun


    I have absolutely NO idea where you're getting your information, but it sounds a lot like some shit people cook up for fanfictions. If you're looking for real gossip, go to the Korean forums. The ones being run by i-fans are basically just a bunch of tweens shipping randomly trying to write smut on the side.

  50. I replied 09 comment actually....why u so upset
    If that 20 something ahjummas want to sabotage snsd comeback with scandal ....sooyoung is the most easy target...
    i gave reason why others not....

  51. Dispatch has a reputation for releasing scandalous news without regard for the adverse effects it'll have on the people involved. The fact that they mentioned that something had to be a "sacrifice"...it's like they're relishing in the fact that them putting it out there will be at the expense of someone else. I have very little tolerance for something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Dispatch is so annoying. They're nothing compared to Shunkan Busun

    ReplyDelete
  53. everybody already knows what will the scandal is...g dragon will announce his engagement (finally)

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is all interesting

    ReplyDelete
  55. Actually, In terms of appearance and popularity in Korea, Hyoyeon is still in last place. It's internationally that both Hyoyeon and Sooyoung thrivein popularity.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Regardless which of SNSD members would be paired up with him neitizen's would still take a massive dump on them. Didn't you know Actor/Actresses >>>>>>>> Idol.

    Even if it was Queen Yoona they would complain that she is a no-talent wannabe idol and would not be good enough for Wonbin. They praise him as if he is a god. smh

    ReplyDelete
  57. Dude, I'm soo with you.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hmm.... I, too, wonder what the big news will be about!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. considering dispatch, most probably it's about yg artists.

    ReplyDelete
  60. True, there are a lot of stupid people in the world, you'd be one of the major ones. It's just music, if you don't like it, accept the simple fact that other people than you like other things in music and life in general than you and that your music taste isn't some God Given Superior Thing.


    I know that can be hard to grasp for some people, but at least try, else you only sound like some immature 12 yr old brat or someone who has never developed emotionally and mentally beyond the puberty stage.
