Nicole glams up for 'Beauvely'



Article: "Unrecognizably prettier" former KARA member Nicole shows mature beauty

Source: Nate

1. [+354, -22] I wonder what Nicole's mother was thinking when she played her part in ruining KARA.. I'd understand if it was Han Seungyeon's family that did it since she suffered the most for the group but it was Nicole of all members, the least popular member.. Could've at least waited to renew and give a solo or something a go before disbanding the entire group. She probably didn't think Nicole would be stuck on nugu varieties for the rest of her career like this.

2. [+142, -7] I never once thought she was pretty. She looked like an ajumma before she lost weight and now that she lost weight, she looks like a fitness ajumma.

3. [+139, -10] Maybe it's the angle but her face looks damn long in these pictures. She looks better with shorter hair.

4. [+21, -1] Not pretty, she looks like an ajumma in her late thirties

5. [+20, -2] She's nothing without her group

6. [+19, -2] She's an ajumma now ㅋㅋ

7. [+18, -2] Probably thought her popularity would last forever even on her own... I hope she now realizes that popularity is a bubble waiting to burst

8. [+18, -3] Ajumma...??

9. [+17, -2] KARA had so much more potential left but that damn greed got in the way

10. [+12, -2] Ajumma~~ ajumma!!

Yeeun reveals her car and home


Article: Yeeun makes first appearance in a red sports car

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+267, -7] She was a Wonder Girls member for years... her home is not what I expected

2. [+219, -9] The gap in quality between her car and her house is pretty big..?

3. [+162, -8] Sunny's apartment is in Trimaje... meanwhile Yeeun's place... looks like some one room that a college student would live in

4. [+54, -0] I think she's living in a place like this because her father was involved in that scandal and she had to scale down

5. [+35, -1] Maybe Yeeun spent all her money on helping her dad out with his scam...

6. [+25, -1] Well, maybe she owns the building that apartment is in......

7. [+21, -2] Surely she made a ton of money with the Wonder Girls.. I never expected her to live in a place like this

8. [+20, -1] It's because of comments like this that celebrities are either hesitant about revealing their homes or strive to live in more luxurious places to show off

9. [+14, -1] Is that some attic one room? Pretty simple of her

10. [+12, -2] I feel like a Wonder Girls member could do better than a Mustang

11. [+11, -1] Her door and windows are so worn out looking;;

12. [+9, -5] Don't most millennials live like her though? Fancy import car while living in a rented studio

Why is Seolhyun being criticized for unfollowing certain celebrities?


Article: Seolhyun under feminism controversy, but why?

Source: Sports Today via Nate

For pressing like on Suzy's Instagram post and unfollowing certain people like Yoo Ah In, Yoo Byung Jae, IU, etc.

1. [+1,537, -282] What's so wrong about organizing her follow list? Maybe she unfollowed them because she doesn't care for their posts. She can't unfollow on her own anymore?

2. [+1,512, -728] Why are men being so sensitive;;; they're not letting these idols say anything at all;;;

3. [+1,418, -326] I feel so bad for idols these days ㅋㅋㅋㅋ at this rate, they won't even be able to speak in Korean because anything they say will be attacked

4. [+132, -56] Our Seolhyunnie, you do whatever you want to do!!!!! Us unnies will support you!!!!!

5. [+127, -52] Seolhyun Seolhyun ^^ It's women who do all the spending anyway so Seolhyun go do anything you want to do, anything~~~~~~

6. [+108, -32] Seolhyun's the best!!!!!

7. [+64, -16] It's funny how men are always praising her body and supporting her but the minute she started dating Zico and they realized they didn't have a chance with her, they started calling her a sl*t and leaving hate comments. Why should Seolhyun act the way men want her to act? The mindset of misogynistic Korean men is so selfish and childish.

8. [+46, -13] I still don't get why being a feminist at all should be controversial

9. [+35, -6] The funniest part is when men say she's no longer bride material because she's a feminist ㅋㅋ excuse me but who's passing on who? ^^ These men need to realize their true worth

10. [+35, -11] Men, please put your hand over your heart and ask your honestly... have you ever called yourself someone's fan and supported them financially? Did you ever buy albums, buy concert tickets, buy Seolhyun's CF products? The majority of men who call themselves fans, all they do is watch sexy fancams on YouTube and look up provocative pictures on Tumblr or Google. Do you even stream songs when they have comebacks...? I think it's great that Seolhyun can escape these men now. More women will become her fan with her support and women are known to be the financial powerhouses within fandoms. Buying albums is a basic task for women. When men leave a fandom, they do so by deleting pictures off their computer. When women leave, it affects album and merchandise sales. I always thought Irene's feminism controversy was so funny because when men posted about how they were leaving her fandom, the pictures they posted of ripping up her products were not official merchandise or albums but unofficial photocards ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I thought at least they had bought her albums and were throwing them out... So who spends the money? Female fans~ all male fans do is call themselves fans while posting sexual harassment pictures. Just search Seolhyun on Naver... no wonder Seolhyun became a feminist.

BTS skips BBMA after party to hang out with their fans


Article: This is why BTS is who they are, prioritized meeting fans instead of the after party

Source: Star Today via Nate

1. [+1,192, -22] They're kids who surprise you the more you get to know them

2. [+1,129, -18] I remember last year they were on V app instead of the after party too. I personally hoped they would just go and enjoy the party ㅠㅠ thank you for always thinking of Armies

3. [+1,014, -15] BTS just keeps setting records... They made my heart feel so full and proud today!!!

4. [+82, -1] I remember all those hard days in the past. Just because they were from a smaller agency, fans had to work harder to buy their albums and get them a rookie award and yet everyone accused us of sajaegi just because our agency isn't powerful. It was through all that sorrow and pain that they kept growing and growing and getting more popular. We know that they're extra cautious with their actions because they love their fans and don't want fans to be caught up in misunderstandings... which just cause fans to go crazy in love with them more...

5. [+80, -2] You're going to need achievements like this to be able to use headlines like "swept America", "shook up the world"... I'm tired of all the singers who media played off of their Hallyu popularity

6. [+69, -0] They said over a dozen, hundred times that the award was thanks to Armies, they're kids who truly make their fans feel happy

7. [+67, -0] They claim to love their fans no matter how much their position has changed. It might sound so simple but it's the hardest thing to do. Congratulations!! And hopefully this comeback will be the start of more happy promos in Korea too.

8. [+59, -0] I know some people are upset that they didn't go to the after party but their network is big enough... There are so many famous international artists who want to collab with them and BTS is just too busy to even do them all. A lot of worldwide staff participated in their new album and their newly contracted American agency has promotions and distributions underway that can't even compare to their previous releases. BTS is a group that got this far without network but through skills, effort, and character alone. Do you think all it takes is networking and singing English songs for an Asian artist to get this far?? No, BTS has done something no other has been able to. They don't have to attend parties, they don't have to go around networking. John Legend is already taking a BTS CD out of his bag and asking for an autograph. The members are also not drinkers so I don't think they'd be able to fit in with the party environment anyway... I think they did well to leave.

9. [+54, -0] I honestly thought they won the award due to having a lot of Asian fans... but it seems not the case after seeing so many American stars taking selcas with them. I personally find their song lyrics cringe but they're very catchy with good rhythm.

10. [+49, -1] Either way, the members don't drink ㅋㅋㅋㅋ and if they do, it's a couple glasses at most... I'm so glad to always be sharing this joy with them on V app after these events. So proud to be a fan of these superstars. Fighting~ let's fly higher, further~~

Sulli was originally cast for Jun Jong Seo's character in 'Burning'


Article: 'Section TV' Sulli -> Jun Jong Seo for 'Burning' casting

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+356, -63] The 'Burning' cast were acting so cocky at the Cannes and yet they flopped and didn't even come away with an award ㅋㅋ They ignored Koreans thinking they'd do well at the Cannes, I suppose ㅎㅎㅎ Let's not let them get away with it when they come back to Korea and act like they're apologetic and humble. They're only going to act sorry in Korea because they did so poorly at Cannes.

2. [+312, -29] I think Sulli would've matched better with Yoo Ah In ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+254, -32] Ah, Sulli would've matched that role too

4. [+32, -7] ㅋㅋㅋ Too bad the true colors of her character were exposed as soon as she debuted

5. [+29, -9] Sulli would've been better

6. [+27, -10] Sulli's character isn't problematic lately~

7. [+26, -10] Yoo Ah In and Sulli... it would've been a pairing of the two biggest attention wh*res ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+22, -8] Sulli might've been better. If she took 'Burning', this could've been a turning point for her acting career.

9. [+12, -3] I remember news of Sulli being cast for 'Burning' a few years ago got tons of hate and now everyone's saying she would've been better ㅋㅋㅋ you're only saying that because Jun Jong Seo had that character controversy ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+11, -2] As for Jun Jong Seo, well... unless her next movie hits daebak, I don't think she'll ever land a major role again... Even veterans like Choi Min Shik haven't been getting new roles after having three movies flop in a row. Movies take a lot of investments so they're not going to risk that by using stars with negative images.

11. [+10, -4] Sulli would've been too dumb to even understand the scenario.. Jun Jong Seo acted amazingly well in the movie but she has no one to blame but herself for the hole she dug herself into now..

12. [+9, -3] It was also Kang Dong Won instead of Steven Yeun in the initial casting ㅋㅋㅋ
