Article: "Sungkyunkwan cyber university" Seo Shin Ae shares how different a new semester looks through corona19

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+715, -20] What is the point in having classes online if everyone's gathered like that? The woman in the back isn't even wearing a mask.

2. [+696, -32] Why are you studying at a cafe and not at home..

3. [+492, -21] That woman behind her is not wearing a mask. Why do other people have to suffer because of fools like her?

4. [+66, -2] Schools are not holding lectures online just for you to go study at a cafe;;; sigh, this is all just making me sigh

5. [+37, -3] It's really annoying how students are turning cafes into study libraries without even wearing masks ㅜㅜ everyone's just hanging out listening to online lectures.. I wish they'd just study at home ㅜ

6. [+28, -0] Starbucks is full of people;; majority of people aren't wearing masks, everyone's eating and drinking, talking face to face ㅠㅠㅠㅠ and with the way the tables are so close together, it's so dangerous

7. [+20, -1] At this rate, classes may as well be held in lecture halls with everyone wearing a mask.. what's the point in online lectures if they're going to study like this?

8. [+20, -3] Cafes are the most shocking to me. Whenever I pass by one, I see people without masks on, people on Zoom meetings... what's the point in any of this?

9. [+17, -7] Maybe that woman isn't wearing a mask because she's trying to drink her drink. How do you expect people to drink with a mask on?

10. [+10, -0] Listening to online lectures at a cafe during a time like this is just really foolish

Dara talks about her first experience


Article: 'Love Game' Sandara Park, "Starring in a musical for the first time... Son Ho Young takes care of me"

Source: Korea Ilbo via Nate

1. [+406, -21] With those singing skills, that tonality, that voice... what musical are you doing...

2. [+375, -18] Musical...?? You have to sing well for that, and act well... I'd be pissed if I was a musical actor.

3. [+303, -13] Even during her days as a singer, she was known as the worst singer of her group. Her voice has no strength to it, about as weak as a choding's, so why is she doing a musical...?? Over people who have the talent but still are spending over 10 years in an ensemble as supporting roles..??

4. [+29, -1] Must be exhausting for the other musical actors or trainees... Sure, having a celebrity in the cast will bring in the ticket sales, but at least cast someone with a bit of talent ㅜㅜ Sandara's just someone whose voice was never meant to sing no matter how hard she tries, this is just wrong....

5. [+26, -4] What is this crazy talk, what musical??

6. [+23, -2] Imagine doing a musical with as much tonality as a mosquito ㅠ

7. [+23, -6] She is so untalented and yet she's doing a musical;;; that's just showing a lack of respect to the other musical actors. She's best fit for being a beauty YouTuber.

8. [+19, -3] Wow... not that I'm trying to put her down but I saw Ok Joo Hyun's 'Rebecca' a few weeks ago and it was impossible not to give her a standing ovation... and yet I heard that even she still has to deal with hate comments. As a musical fan, I wish productions would cast people who are ready for these roles.

9. [+19, -5] Surely a musical with no singing in it?

10. [+17, -2] Maybe she's playing the role of a cow or something;;

Film critic Darcy Paquet considers 'oppa' the most difficult Korean word to translate


Article: 'Parasite' translator Darcy Paquet "The Korean word most difficult to translate is 'oppa'"

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+1,179, -20] "Korean has much more swear words than English, which is a problem (laugh)" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Koreans have the best swears

2. [+773, -59] There are a lot of different nuances to oppa as well 'oppang~" (when you need something), oppa (neutral), oppa!!!! (when you're mad)

3. [+719, -9] Korean has more swears than English.... ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+53, -1] It really is hard to interpret what just 'oppa' means since it can mean so many different things like whether he's your blood brother, an oppa you're in a some with, a church oppa, an oppa you're dating... ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+25, -1] You can really count American swears on one hand... usually asking about your mother or the "beach", etc

6. [+23, -2] Korean's an amazing language. You can use the same word to express so many different things. It's also a good expression of Korean sentiment.

7. [+15, -1] Oppa is a magical word

8. [+10, -1] Korean's a difficult language to translate... a lot of different connotative meanings and combinations... Hoorah to Korean~

9. [+5, -14] The easiest way is probably just to replace oppa with the person's name
- That's how Netflix does it

10. [+3, -0] It is confusing since people call their husband their oppa, their older brother their oppa, a senior their oppa...

Jun Somi's Lamborghini is not actually hers


Article: [Exclusive Jun Somi's 'Lamborghini SUV' is not hers

Source: Star News via Nate

1. [+1,499, -223] If you see a young person driving a nice car, all you have to think is "they must've worked hard at a young age to be able to drive a nice car", and if you see someone driving a nice car because they have rich parents, all you have to think is "I may not be able to afford that much for my own child but I will continue to work hard to be a good parent to my children"

2. [+1,060, -111] Why is this so important? How wrapped up in jealousy are we as a people that this is considered exclusive news? If you're a normal person, you shouldn't even care whether that's her car or not. It's not like it's illegal for her to own that car so what's the issue here?

3. [+583, -44] Well, the YouTube channel succeeded in promoting itself

4. [+33, -20] She's shot so many CFs of her own, she could probably purchase it if she wanted to. She's spending her own money that she made so I don't get why people have such a problem with it. I consider people who worry about celebrities while they're working part-time jobs themselves no different than people who get all pressed about how celebrities spend their money.

5. [+24, -2] If it's not illegal, we should just let it be

6. [+22, -11] Koreans: expects celebrities to live the same $1,800 a month lifestyle as themselves

7. [+21, -3] Why is this controversial at all anyway?

8. [+16, -7] I'm questioning why this is important enough to be the #1 searched piece of news

9. [+10, -1] Such mean people. Instead of being jealous, why not try harder at your own life?

10. [+6, -0] People can never stand to see someone doing better than them ㅋㅋㅋ

T-ara's Qri shows off her dollish features




Article: T-ara Qri, was she always this pretty

Source: Herald Pop via Nate

1. [+1,024, -58] Upvote if you wouldn't recognize her on the streets, downvote if you would

2. [+851, -47] Looks like a face punched out of a Gangnam plastic surgery clinic

3. [+656, -36] If you get off Gangnam station, you can see a ton of this face walking around the sidewalks

4. [+31, -3] She just can't leave her face alone... I'm surprised she has anything left to work with

5. [+26, -2] Her eyes are soon going to merge into one

6. [+22, -2] You really have to give Kwang Soo props for taking a group of untalented kids and hitting daebak with a group like T-ara. Too bad he's also the reason for their downfall...

7. [+19, -2] Honestly the member with the least presence in T-ara

8. [+18, -1] The typical Gangnam unni face that import models always go for

9. [+15, -9] She was always pretty, though. I'm sure she's gotten some things done here and there but not a lot. She's just always been pretty. If she looks unnatural, it's probably because of the circle lens?

10. [+13, -2] I saw a face like this in real life and it was gross..
