Article: Park Yoohwan "Both sides reached an amicable settlement"

Source: Ilgan Sports via Naver

1. [+3,765, -57] Their mother must feel so depressed with both brothers acting up like this

2. [+3,161, -75] Amicable settlement (X) -> financial settlement (O)

3. [+1,892, -44] How depressing it must be to be their parents..

4. [+1,606, -39] Sigh... both brothers acting up...

5. [+988, -43] Sigh...

6. [+454, -24] How loyal of him to cause a scandal right after his brother's as if he had to follow up with one too

7. [+407, -21] He should be grateful he even has a career off of the back of his brother's with a face like that, should've been more careful to take care of his private life... both brothers tainting their parent's name like this.

8. [+348, -13] So he did live with her and it did count as a commonlaw marriage... all of this is so messy

1. [+227, -7] Such a mess of brothers ㅋㅋ

2. [+177, -5] Hot brothers

3. [+152, -7] Can't fool blood ^^

4. [+29, -8] The downfall of brothers... but if you think about it, Park Yoohwan's scandal isn't much to make such a big deal about but it coinciding with his brother's scandal makes it seem exaggerated..

5. [+6, -1] So how's your brother doing? He's going to the bathroom often or?

6. [+6, -0] Well Park Yoochun owns real estate so they can live off of that probably......

Seolhyun reveals she's handling her break up well

Article: [Exclusive Interview] Seolhyun, "Everyone goes through dating and break ups, I'm handling it well right now"

Source: Sports Seoul via Nate

1. [+359, -202] I thought she was just a pretty face but she has a pretty way with words too

2. [+306, -167] After reading the interview, it seems she isn't reflecting over her history controversy but rather thinking that she's handling the negative reactions well

3. [+247, -98] She looks like she's aged in these pictures..

4. [+59, -26] She's so ugly with her hair tied up like that... let it loose since it at least makes you look better

5. [+45, -13] Not sure if it's just these pictures or she's really gone through some stressful times... but she aged really hard

6. [+38, -10] 'Kloud' used to do well with Jun Ji Hyun as their model until they fell for Seolhyun's trend status and switched to her as their model and their profits tanked... They recently became one of the failures of expansion alongside the honey butter chip company

7. [+26, -4] Of course everyone goes through break ups but hers was especially bad considering it made her out to look like she was obsessed with him while he sat around denying it ㅋㅋ talk about a dent in your pride

8. [+19, -12] From her hair to her clothes to her make up, everything looks like she's trying to copy Suzy. Just go back to your tanned skin and sexy style.

9. [+16, -2] She doesn't look good without her usual hair style..

10. [+14, -4] She looks like a pretty North Korean lady;;


Source: Naver

1. [+6,581, -309] Yeah well it's not like it was a divorce, it's just a break up

2. [+3,899, -203] I wish they'd stop asking her about the relationship, half of the questions are about it

3. [+601, -51] I wonder what this country cares about other than dating news? All of the dramas are about dating, the celebrity industry is about dating ㅋ How can we raise a generation of brains in this country without any intellectual influence when the public media is in such a tragic state ㅋ

4. [+707, -100] She really has a strong mentality.....

5. [+783, -135] She talks about the history controversy as if she just got unlucky and tripped one day... So different from Jimin's stance for the same controversy. At least Jimin's been studying up.

6. [+777, -140] She doesn't seem to be reflecting at all over the history controversy. She doesn't have a clue about what she did wrong.

7. [+559, -70] You don't just "become an adult" by living life... you have to read and study up. You can't possibly think the passage of time grants you the right to be an adult, right?

8. [+553, -75] She needs to read some more books ㅠㅠ what a shame

9. [+503, -61] How can she not think the relationship influenced her at all?... It actually did in a big way

10. [+414, -54] And what exactly is she "handling well"? I haven't seen her do anything well yet

11. [+382, -48] I don't care about her enough to put her down or hate on her but she's honestly just another female idol who happened to have been born with good looks and can make a living dancing around in underwear. No reason to put her on a pedestal or anything!

12. [+218, -20] Are the pictures really Seolhyun? She looks so ugly in them that I can't even believe it... Her body may be great but her face is... whatever. I guess her face is really dependent on her hair style.

13. [+215, -24] She already got caught running around in tiny skirts but now she's sitting here acting like a classy lady ㅎㅎ please go read some books in the time you're dating

14. [+210, -23] Read some books, it's honestly pathetic

15. [+175, -18] She's just someone who can't sing, dance, or have any talents but still see all the time you turn on the TV through CFs..


Navi tries on a wedding dress look for her family photo

Article: "Slightly nervous" 'Jang Dong Min girlfriend' Navi shows wedding dress look

Source: Mydaily via Nate

(Tried on for a family photo, not her actual wedding dress)

1. [+968, -105] All I'm reminded of is the suppository ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+753, -91] Jang Dong Min that ba$tard... now all I think of is that suppository when I see Navi

3. [+688, -169] Her boyfriend is Jang Dong Min ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ what to do ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

4. [+77, -6] She used to be such a pretty singer with good skills but ever since she started dating Jang Dong Min, her image tanked

5. [+64, -4] It's hard to view her as normal either

6. [+43, -1] She probably shared this photo hoping for comments calling her pretty but all everyone ever talks about is the suppository... sucks for her...

7. [+36, -5] I'd rather enjoy life on my own than marry a man like Jang Dong Min

8. [+36, -2] Why is she trying on a wedding dress when she's taking a family photo? Is she getting married to her dad or what?

9. [+34, -5] I'd rather get old and die by myself than get married to Jang Dong Min

10. [+18, -3] Even if the suppository incident is embarrassing for her, she's better off breaking it off with him. I heard he even threw stuff at her already? He's going to beat her for the rest of her life


Seolhyun gives an interview on her acting career

Article: [Exclusive Interview] Seolhyun, "I'm still a rookie as an actress, of course I don't have a representative work"

Source: Sports Seoul via Nate

- What are the different charms of singing, acting, and variety?
A singer's charm is their ability to show everything that they've worked hard to prepare in 3 minutes. I feel happiness when I can feel the reactions from the crowd right away from stage. As for an actor, I think being able to live life as a different person is a charm. You can try so many things you've never tried before through acting. Through varieties, I can also show who I really am. As a singer and actor, you're made up to present something more than who you really are whereas my image on varieties is closer to 100% of who I am.

- You don't quite have a representative work both on the small and big screens despite having starred in several already.
I'm a rookie actress still. I haven't done a lot compared to how long I've been working. I of course don't have any representative works because of that.

- What are your pros and cons as an actor?
I'm good at feeling the emotions of a situation, no matter the situation. For as fast as I can get emotional, I still feel that I lack in expressing them. I'm the type of personality that struggles with expressing myself and I think that shows in my acting. I know I feel it in my heart but I don't think I've reached a point where I can express it in my acting yet.

- Do you have a genre you'd like to try?
I like fantasy movies... I would like to try an SF or fantasy movie someday. I also want to try a story about communicating with animals. I love animals so I'd love to work in a drama or movie with them.

- Which do you like more, acting or singing?
If I had to choose between the two, I think I'm right in the middle. I find both very fun and I could never give one up. When I act, I find acting fun, and when I sing, I find singing fun.


1. [+483, -60] Please all you idols, stop acting... if you must act, then at least stay out of movies. I really want to rip the screen apart with some of you.

2. [+453, -45] Her image was great at the start but her agency media played so much that they turned it right back. Her CEO is her anti.

3. [+430, -57] But are you even a good singer... aigoo... you should be looking to improve your singing, why're you acting...

4. [+40, -5] Your voice tone makes up 80% of acting and her voice alone is already an error

5. [+39, -9] So she "can feel the emotions but can't express them"? Then why is she taking lead roles...

6. [+32, -6] If she really wants to pursue acting, she needs to start from the basics and really study up with smaller roles and work her way up. It's because she takes lead roles without the skills for it that her acting doesn't connect with the viewers...

7. [+26, -4] Her voice is an error ㅠ

8. [+24, -4] She can't sing, can't act, she's barely maintaining her popularity with her body

9. [+23, -3] It's not only that you can't act, your pronunciation is also really bad too. Just stay out of acting forever.

10. [+21, -3] If you're a rookie, then act like one by starting with smaller roles ^^

11. [+20, -3] Idols have a short lifespan and she can't sing on her own so it's always those idols who can't do this or that that end up going into acting

12. [+18, -1] Don't act

13. [+16, -0] She's not a singer, she's not an actor... if she wants to just show her face everywhere, she should be a model. I hate singers who can't sing and actors who can't act ㅋㅋ

14. [+15, -0] Looks like the end goal for every idol is to become an actor

15. [+12, -1] I personally think she's a pretty and charming style but I recently saw that movie 'Gangnam 1970' and her acting is pretty embarrassing. If you're someone who thinks Kim Go Eun is bad at acting, then you should avoid Seolhyun's stuff altogether.


Did Winner really "win"?

Article: Was Winner the real winner?

Source: 10asia via Nate

1. [+433, -15] I feel so bad for Winner. Their debut album was really fresh and I think their agency being as big as YG is didn't actually work in their favor. It's not that they didn't benefit from them at all but I've just never heard of a rookie taking a hiatus for a year and a half like that.

2. [+396, -17] Empty, Don't Flirt, etc they had a lot of great songs, I wish they'd comeback already. Yang Hyun Suk should stop casting trainees from 'K-Pop Star' and give his own artists some ample support ㅠㅠ

3. [+366, -15] Black Pink debuted in August but they're having their comeback in November... So YG is clearly capable of giving their rookies a new comeback in just 3 months so why is Winner on break for a year and a half just 3 months after their own debut.... I feel like if Winner was under a mid-tier agency, they'd be on TV a lot more than they are now. It's such a shame that such a talented group of kids aren't able to show their full potential. Winner has great songs...

4. [+53, -21] Jinwoo-ya, hurry on out

5. [+47, -0] Such a waste of Kang Seung Yoon's talents...

6. [+44, -3] Winner had a shining debut. They were so refreshing because they were different from YG's usual concepts. Their album was brimming with songs that were equal title worthy. There are still a lot of fans waiting ㅜ so please comeback with a good song soon

7. [+41, -2] Winner has the potential to go big with the right support. It's just that YG isn't giving that support ㅜ.ㅜ Winner has the type of songs that even the public can comfortably listen to so they're not like most idols. I hope to see more of them in the future!!!

8. [+40, -1] 'Empty' did really well for a rookie group but YG choosing to keep them on hiatus for a year and a half after that was their biggest mistake. That's a crucial time for rookie groups to really set up their fanbases but going on hiatus right then only caused their 'light fans' to leave. I'm really sad that Nam Taehyun is sick but also sad that there are so many misreports about him right now too.

9. [+39, -8] Kang Seung Yoon and Song Minho have big fandoms ㅜ just something about the timing with this group is always off...

10. [+33, -1] I feel like YG puts more pressure on their boy groups than their girl groups. It's not necessary that an artist always has to produce his own music but YG puts too much pressure on their boy groups to produce.

11. [+31, -5] What's worse is that other groups release choreography videos as fan service on YouTube but YG released Winner's as a separate DVD. Talk about milking the money ㅋㅋ

12. [+30, -1] I still remember Yang Hyun Suk pressuring Winner during 'WIN' "Do you want to go to the army or do you want to go to the stage" ㅋㅋㅋ If the kids had served in the army right after their debut, they'd already be out during their hiatus... sigh. All of this is so frustrating. YG really is the type to debut groups they can't handle and start businesses they can't manage; I really want to see the 5 promoting again

13. [+28, -6] YG's soon going to become an agency that trainees won't want to join. YG's name only holds value in the past... nowadays, all of their releases have been doing lackluster. Their rookies are all the same style with character issues. YG's glory days were just up to Big Bang, that's it.

14. [+25, -2] I'll support you forever Winner, see you healthy soon!!

15. [+22, -3] Don't blame Taehyun for the comeback being delayed. Just give the other 4 ample opportunities to promote individually until the comeback!!
