Netizens mourn alongside Samsung kin

Article: "Let me brag about my daughters" CEO Lee Gun Hee... two daughters send him off in tears

1. [+1,700, -25] Just because you're rich doesn't make the pain of losing a parent any less...

2. [+1,229, -31] Hoping his children can find strength. May he rest in peace.

3. [+1,039, -27] May he rest in peace. His family is doing a great job.

4. [+168, -3] Most chaebol families have siblings fighting over fortunes and favoring of the oldest male, but Samsung has never caused noise because they treat all their children equally. The siblings are all super close as well. They're always holding hands and looking after each other side by side. It's telling of why Samsung is the best company... rest in peace.

5. [+160, -5] He was especially fond of Lee Boo Jin. There's a famous account of when she wanted to marry some ridiculous man and he never reprimanded her. People saw him sitting at the same cafe he talked to her in for hours after she had left.

6. [+115, -1] Out of all the chaebols, his children are the most successful. Koreans consider Samsung not only the best company in the country but also the best chaebol family as well. I hope he rests in peace.

7. [+102, -1] He must be reunited with his maknae daughter in heaven now

8. [+87, -3] Such a better story than other chaebol families who end up in fights and abuse of power as soon as the father passes...

9. [+56, -2] He has reunited with his third daughter

10. [+55, -3] I'm sure he never got over the grief of losing his maknae daughter so early...

11. [+53, -4] The picture of them holding hands breaks my heart. Just because they're chaebols doesn't mean the pain of losing a parent hurts any less... find strength.

12. [+50, 1-] Commoner or chaebol, it hurts to lose a parent regardless...

1. [+2,787, -23] I've never seen such close siblings out of any chaebol famil than them.. They're always together, whether it's to see baseball games or through hardship... Lee Gun Hee was both an amazing businessman and father.

2. [+1,943, -32] Lee Boo Jin had such a deep connection with Lee Gun Hee. It's so human to see her so sad. Out of all the chaebol children, she has the kindest and warmest character of them all.

3. [+1,200, -19] I was watching the news and it was heartbreaking to see Lee Boo Jin crying so hard. She couldn't even hold herself up and Lee Jae Yong had to hold her hand. 

4. [+545, -16] May he rest in peace. Thank you for all that you've done.

5. [+284, -0] I hope that the three siblings lead the company well without getting into any fights. They are truly a royal family that represents our country.

6. [+245, -4] You can tell they were raised well

7. [+175, -2] Samsung did such a great job of raising their children. They're all so handsome and beautiful too.

8. [+143, -1] Other chaebol families are always getting into fights but the Samsung children have always shown such close blonds... Lee Gun Hee ran one of the best companies but also a strong family as well.

9. [+115, -2] I have no ties at all to Samsung but I'm grateful to them as a Korean citizen. We have lost a great star. May he rest in peace.

10. [+114, -4] He is the giant of our generation. Rest in peace.

1. [+1,414, -10] Thanks to communist China for trying to bully BTS, westerners and people all over the world are now able to mark a clear difference between Koreans and the Chinese

2. [+523, -0] Chinese celebrities working in Korea are all so busy trying to glamorize the history of the 6.25 war for themselves but they don't allow us to say anything about it ㅋㅋ hypocrites

3. [+36, -0] I'm a bit too old to be liking idols but amidst all these depressing news articles, it gives me strength to see BTS news too. They make me proud as a Korean citizen.

4. [+27, -0] BTS is bulletproof for a reason, I wish them more success

5. [+22, -1] Please kick all the Chinese idols out to North Korea and make sure all K-Pop idol groups are only Korean from now on! Let's never forget all the cases of foreigner members taking our fame and running with it.

6. [+20, -0] China, look at how North Korea is faring after your help in the 6.25 war. They are starving and running away. How can you be proud of that?

7. [+19, -0] I'm not a BTS fan but I'll defend them against the Chinese if I have to

8. [+17, -0] BTS is Korea's pride. They are accomplishing things that no one else has been able to. They're the only group that can shut China up from all their lies. I'm so mad that this is the reality that they're in, though ㅠㅠ

9. [+13, -0] This is a great example of the kind of soft power that pop culture like BTS holds on the rest of the world. I'm proud that BTS has the kind of influence that they do.

10. [+12, -0] China's just scared that Hallyu is growing within China when they have to claim communism to be the best at everything

Article: SM 'rookie' Aespa reveals second member Karina

Source: Insight via Instagram

1. [+623] The SM visual is dead...

2. [+464] Did they all get work done at the same hospital?

3. [+399] There are a lot of you who don't even seem to know that you're writing hate comments

4. [+180] Same face, just different hair

5. [+163] Eh? If they're using Karina as her stage name, are they admitting to her rumors? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+75] Sigh, SM's going to flop

7. [+73] I wonder if this means Red Velvet won't renew

8. [+68] SM has lost its touch

9. [+64] But really, where are the SM visuals;; and why are they debuting someone with poor character liker her;;?? I don't get it

10. [+59] Why do they all look the same to me?

11. [+19] Why are people ragging about her debuting when other male idols got to debut just fine. Wasn't EXO's Baekh caught judging SNSD's faces and bodies at the beginning of his debut? Talking about how small their chests are ㅋㅋ and NCT is a school bully group, no? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

12. [+82] I wonder how she'll face NCT and EXO anymore

13. [+19] SM has lost their touch...

14. [+7] Looks like the first member...

15. [+6] If she debuts, how is she going to face all the seniors she talked sh*t about...

Wendy revealed to have packed lunch boxes for Red Velvet members

Article: 'Angel' Wendy packs lunch boxes + handwritten letters for members for being unable to participate in varieties due to injury

Source: Insight via Instagram

1. [+1,867] Good and evil existing together in one group ㅋㅋ

2. [+1,148] Sigh, what did the other members do to deserve this ㅜㅜ

3. [+872] I'm sure she had her own schedules to worry about but she still packed those lunch boxes with such care and love. You can tell just from that how much she looks after her members on the regular.

4. [+712] Seriously, Irene is making all the other members get hate right now ㅜㅜㅜ what did they do to deserve this ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ

5. [+577] Wendy was just about to get back with the group again but the timing of everything... Red Velvet has a year left in their contract now, I'm curious to see how all of this is going to go down.

6. [+294] Oh Wendy, what a woman 😫👍

7. [+114] How kind of her, unlike another member in her team 👏

8. [+87] Seungwan-ah, you are the best member of our generation... 😭

9. [+65] How comparable

10. [+47] Why must she suffer because of a certain other member ㅠ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ


SM unveils first member of new girl group Aespa

Article: SM reveals first member of new girl group Aespa

Source: Insight via Instagram

1. [+271] Am I the only one who's super looking forward to their debut?; Not sure why everyone's so hung up on the plastic surgery. Have you personally seen them get work done? Did you pay for it yourselves? These girls are rookies which means they're barely 20 something years old, and you're already ripping them apart before they've even debuted.

2. [+233] Did SM... change the style of facial features they usually go for? 😢

3. [+180] Just like how Red Velvet replaced f(x), looks like this new group will be replacing Red Velvet..

4. [+126] She feels like a mix of Taeyeon + ITZY's Lia

5. [+95] So Irene is making her exit while Aespa makes their debut

6. [+37] Let's not say too much about the plastic surgery. They're going to get a ton more work done after they debut anyway.

7. [+4] These comments are a mess. You guys do realize that SM groups always get a ton of hate before their debut and then people go crazy over their looks after the debut. Red Velvet got a ton of hate before their debut too, and people made fun of SM for losing their sense in physical looks ㅋ

8. [+107] No... this is not right... these are not the visuals SM is known for.........

9. [+99] I really think SM stopped caring about their visuals after Red Velvet

10. [+50] She looks like she's from some mid tier agency ㅋㅋㅋ what's up with her?

11. [+28] I.. refuse to give up on the traditional SM beauty..

12. [+25] She's not really an SM type visual, right...?

13. [+24] Red Velvet was the cut off for the SM visual

14. [+17] This isn't really the type of visual that SM normally goes for
