Cosmic Girls unveil 13 member comeback with Yoo Yeon Jung




Article: Cosmic Girls unveils 13 member comeback with Yoo Yeon Jung... August comeback

Source: TV Report via Naver

1. [+1,491, -69] Couldn't they have waited until IOI was done with promos... not sure why companies feel the need to put out so many groups while IOI is still going. Look at all the groups flopping because of that...

2. [+962, -24] So many members ㅋㅋ

3. [+909, -34] I'm sure Yoo Yeon Jung is regretting it on the inside since a member probably barely gets a 5 second part to sing. The Chinese members can at least go back to China and work on their careers then but it's even harder for the Korean members. And groups need one or two charming members for the spotlight but there are 13, that's just too many to pick from...

4. [+614, -44] That Sung Sora kid is pretty but I don't know the rest of their names. Their agency is going to need to focus on getting their names out to get anywhere.

5. [+523, -100] Don't care...

6. [+151, -3] It's so obvious what they're doing. Eliminated Yoo Yeon Jung from the debut but now that she's more popular than them after the show, they stick her back in;;; on top of that, their comeback overlaps with IOI's unit... how hopeless.

7. [+103, -8] Way too many members... it's not like they're under SM who can plan these things out. More than anything, the members look too similar to each other... nothing individual about them.

8. [+97, -10] Even Super Junior struggled to get to where they are now and that was after cutting down members, and even then, 1-2 members are still lacking the fame that the rest have. But a girl group with 13 members trying that???? They won't even survive, let alone have anyone remember what their names are.

9. [+79, -5] I just feel bad for the kids... they worked so hard to become singers but their dreams are in complete control of greedy adults. Who would want to debut while getting all this hate?

10. [+57, -0] Gugudan and DIA didn't even overlap promos with IOI but still got a ton of hate. Cosmic Girls overlapping with IOI's unit... it's going to be hard for Yoo Yeon Jung.

Black Pink confirms debut for August 8th



Article: YG's Black Pink confirms August 8th for debut... diastrophism expected

Source: OSEN via Naver

1. [+2,225, -159] Pretty lackluster effect..

2. [+1,632, -99] Can't trust YG...

3. [+1,540, -99] Finally they're debuting. But it's not like when 2NE1 debuted, it's harder nowadays for girl groups to show anything new. I wonder if YG can come up with a new paradigm for girl groups this time.

4. [+1,679, -209] So when are Bobby and Song Minho's solos? It's going to end up next year at this rate ㅡㅡ

5. [+255, -13] Debuting during the olympics ㅋㅋㅋ I guess it's expected of YG to give up on broadcast promos

6. [+209, -8] I mean YG will debut them but then ignore them like everyone else

7. [+250, -24] YG's girl groups have it difficult in terms of reaching success. It's not a matter of having a good song or visuals or talent. YG just doesn't put them on enough music shows and the hiatuses between releases are too long. On average, you're looking at a year between albums. It's okay for boy groups because fans are loyal but do you think anyone who's fangirling over a girl group is going to wait around a year? It's not like this is WG where they have women in their twenties buying up their digital songs. This isn't the same as when 2NE1 debuted and girl groups were rare, there are tons of girl groups already from smaller agencies with stronger fanbases. It's going to be difficult for YG to succeed if they keep doing what they've been doing.

8. [+206, -13] YG, I'm begging you, this is a rookie group so please treat them like a rookie group and put them on as many TV shows as possible. Stop acting like they're some special artist group that's too good for everything.

Leeteuk mentions Kangin on 'I Can See Your oice 3'


Article: Leeteuk mentions Kangin's scandal on 'I See Your Voice 3', "He's the finger that hurts"

Source: Mydaily via Nate

(TN: There's an old Korean saying where you can bite all 10 fingers and there's not one finger that doesn't hurt, usually used to describe how to a parent, every child of theirs is precious and not one sibling is favored more than the other)

1. [+453, -12] The finger that hurts? He's the finger that you don't need. He almost committed murder ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He won't realize how severe his crime is until he's sitting in jail eating jail food ㅋㅋ

2. [+363, -9] Be like the yakuza and cut that finger off

3. [+254, -4] Throw him in jail

4. [+9, -0] He's still talking about him positively. Leeteuk-ah, this is not the time to be defending him. This is not his first crime, it's been multiple already!!

5. [+9, -1] Well that finger almost killed someone ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+8, -0] That finger is rotting, you have to cut it off before the rest of your hand gets diseased

7. [+8, -0] It's not merely the finger that hurts, it's gotten to the point where it's rotting off and you can't just keep it...

8. [+7, -1] Why is he keeping the finger that's rotten to the point of cancer ㅋㅋㅋ he's going to end up having to cut his wrist off if he just leaves it like that

1. [+5,447, -144] You mean rotten finger ^^

2. [+3,862, -46] I really do hope Kangin is sorry to his members...

3. [+3,526, -93] It's a useless finger, get surgery and cut it off

4. [+425, -25] Leeteuk's the real saint... he let Kangin take his place on 'Sukira' but then gets into a drunk driving scandal;; Lee Sungmin's no better too. Right after Leeteuk finished his family's funeral, Sungmin went all the way to his army to beg him for permission to get married. Leeteuk still went on 'Radio Star' and talked about how sad he was that he wasn't more of a hyung to Sungmin then... Kangin and Sungmin better be thankful to the members and Leeteuk for the rest of their lives.

5. [+369, -17] Leeteuk worked so hard to keep Kangin in the group before they all debuted. Helped him diet and even defended him when he caused trouble. Kangin's seriously a pain in the a$$ and kicking him from the group is the only solution.

6. [+326, -17] Super Junior is only 9, Kangin and Sungmin OUT

7. [+348, -26] Leeteuk did well as SuJu's leader... which is probably why his situation is sadder.. ㅠ

8. [+306, -21] Rare to find a leader like Leeteuk. He's probably so upset that Kangin turned out like this.

Hyuna doesn't regret declining a casting offer for the hit movie 'The Wailing'


Article: 'Happy Together' Hyuna respectfully declined "The Wailing", "I don't have an ounce of regret"

Source: Sports Chosun via Nate

1. [+754, -15] I like that Hyuna knows that it's better to be the best in your main area of expertise rather than jumping into acting for no reason and inconveniencing people with your bad acting

2. [+661, -18] Do all you bad idol actors hear what Hyuna said? ㅋㅋ

3. [+539, -16] But something about the fact that the director wanted to cast Hyuna for Chun Woo Hee's role is bizarre to me

4. [+42, -1] I've always liked her for how charming, sexy, and pretty she is, but I saw how humble she was too on today's episode and fell for her even harder

5. [+36, -10] 100% the right mindset. Idols like Yoona who make dramas flop need to stop jumping into acting.

6. [+32, -0] With the majority of idols trying to get into acting nowadays, I like that Hyuna doesn't show any interest in it

7. [+31, -6] Suzy-ya, learn from Hyuna

8. [+26, -2] Hyuna's the type of kid who has real dreams and actually has a desire to achieve them. She has dreams as a singer and she rejected acting opportunities because she doesn't care for it and isn't prepared for it either. I really do wish Hyuna hits the top as a dancer. Sure there are a lot of idols who are good at dancing but Hyuna just has a different aura.

9. [+21, -12] Wow, at least she has shame ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Suzy-ya, you reading this?" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+12, -4] I find Nana's acting pretty good out of the idols lately. I'm more used to Seo In Guk as an actor than a singer now too.

Dasom shares her most effective weight loss diet



Article: 'Vitamin' Dasom, "I've tried every diet... but starving was the most effective"

Source: TV Report via Naver

"I've tried a variety of diets from one food diets to herbal medicine diets, shake diets, detox diets, etc. Then I tried starving. I think to lose as much weight in a short period, starving is the most effective. It does, however, cause the biggest yoyo."

1. [+4,542, -171] Sad that we live in a world that demands dieting... it's just getting crazier. In the past, you'd see a few thin people on the streets but now everyone is abnormally thin and that thinness is what's pursued by everyone..

2. [+3,378, -71] Starving really is the most effective though... way more effective than carboxy shots and stuff

3. [+3,171, -223] I saw on an internet shopping mall that a size 55 was considered chubby. Since when was 55 chubby? Are the days of 66 being chubby long gone?

4. [+1,677, -59] She's going to disease her body like that ㅜㅜ take care of yourself

5. [+1,563, -72] But starving causes yoyo + a loss of elasticity...

6. [+495, -17] Why bother losing weight? Why can't we be like westerners who don't care about having tummy fat and go around in bikinis and crop tops without caring what other people think?

7. [+389, -12] Starving's only effective when you're young... doesn't matter how much you starve when you're older, it doesn't work ㅠ

8. [+356, -8] How much you eat really is the ultimate factor in weight loss. Unless you're going to work out like some professional athlete, you won't lose weight unless you cut back on your food intake.

9. [+350, -8] I like that she's honest. SISTAR overall seems to be honest about these things unlike other celebrities who are like, "I don't really do anything special~ I'm just skinny like this~~"

10. [+338, -9] But what's the point of living without the joy of eating... ㅠㅠ

Source: Nate

1. [+164, -3] I remember hearing that dieting is more effective when you go to the extreme for a shorter period like starving as hard as you can for a couple weeks and then slowly adjusting your food and working out to maintain it because the longer you diet, the more you lose your determination and end up giving up ㅋㅋ apparently it's the easiest method. No matter how determined you are with your diet, you're going to want to give up once it goes on for too long... I really do think going to the extreme for a short period and then working out after to maintain it is the best.

2. [+159, -7] She's still dieting with her body? I should go kill myself then ㅠ

3. [+101, -2] Sure starving is the most effective but it's also poisoning yourself basically

4. [+22, -1] The most effective diet is emotional distress ㅋㅋ

5. [+5, -0] The love diet is the best~ when you find someone you love, you make yourself lose weight in an effort to be prettier to them~

6. [+3, -1] Sure starving makes you lose weight at first but then your body adjusts to it and then you stop losing weight after that. Then you start feeling disappointed and stressed so you binge eat which then puts you into the cycle of yoyo. Don't starve if you want an effective way to diet. Dieting is like taking the stairs, you need to take steps to develop a healthy meal plan. Obviously every type of diet will follow with a yoyo but eating healthy delays the yoyo and makes it slower whereas starving just makes the yoyo hit you all at once. Please don't read the best replies and ruin your bodies like that.
