If Won Bin, Park Bogum, and Goo Hye Sun originally debuted as idols...

Article: Goo Hye Sun almost became a FinKL or 2NE1 member

Source: Mydaily via Naver

1. [+288, -10] I wonder what it would've been like if she joined 2NE1... I can't imagine her singing a song like 'I Am the Best'

2. [+215, -7] I doubt she would've met Ahn Jae Hyun if she became a 2NE1 member.. which is a shame because they have honey chemistry now..

3. [+230, -20] Thank the stars she isn't in 2NE1

4. [+34, -2] ㅋㅋ Everyone knows she initially prepared to be in a girl group which is why she knows how to write and compose songs, as well as sing and play the piano and guitar

5. [+29, -3] I think she still would've gone into acting if she joined 2NE1

6. [+23, -1] Goo Hye Sun in 2NE1... hard to imagine ㅋ

7. [+27, -3] I wonder if YG would've still dressed Goo Hye Sun in leather leggings and spiked gloves with eyeliner up to the temples of your eyes? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I can't imagine it

8. [+29, -4] Her visuals are not meant for girl groups. Even as an actress, her visuals are considered top level. Idols are for kids with cute faces. Even if she did become an idol, she probably would've transitioned to acting sooner or later.


Article: Park Bogum, a multi-entertainer that SM, YG, and JYP lost out on

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+657, -16] That's why he's so successful now. If he had joined any of those agencies, he'd probably be another idol right now

2. [+462, -15] Proves that you don't need to join the top 3 to be successful

3. [+453, -15] One thing's for sure, he doesn't match any of them

4. [+35, -4] If he joined YG, I wonder when he would've ever gotten to debut... they make you train for at least 4-5 years... and then count the hiatus they'll put him on!!! So glad that he never joined YG!!!!!

5. [+35, -1] Who knows with life, we'll probably never even know of an actor named Park Bogum if he joined a bigger agency


Source: Naver

1. [+3,297, -49] He chose the right agency. His acting's so good and you can tell that he puts in so much effort into every single one of his scenes~~ ^^ Can't wait for his next drama

2. [+2,596, -78] Thank you to those agencies for missing out on him

3. [+516, -8] I'm sure he would've been successful no matter what he pursued but his visuals, acting skills, and overall physical are too good to just be an idol ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+480, -10] He would've been fine no matter where he went ㅋㅋ

5. [+446, -10] So glad he chose to pursue acting


Article: Park Bogum and Won Bin were originally going to be an idol + an HOT member

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+202, -14] How dare SM ever consider putting Won Bin in those wild HOT hair and dance styles... if he had become an HOT member, he probably would be a washed up star on 'I Live Alone' right now...

2. [+195, -5] Won Bin matches acting way more than being an HOT member

3. [+193, -13] Not that I'm trying to put HOT down but it's obvious that SM never put Won Bin in because he's way too handsome and would've just overshadowed the other members. The point of a group is to make everyone shine, not have one stand out~~ HOT could not have handled Won Bin~~

4. [+15, -0] Apparently he got into all of the agencies he applied to but he was grateful for the first agency that contacted him and signed with them first ㅋ I would've personally picked SM, YG, or JYP.. ㅋ

5. [+14, -0] Life would be so unfair if Won Bin was a good singer too

6. [+13, -0] If Won Bin debuted as an idol before becoming an actor, I think he still would've been popular.. and if he was in HOT to boot, he'd probably be more active too, shooting more varieties and probably double the movies than he's shot now ㅋㅋㅋ but the important part to note is that Won Bin's visuals were never meant to be an idol...

7. [+7, -1] If Won Bin was in HOT, I wonder if Shinhwa or Sechs Kies would've even dared to debut at that point

8. [+5, -0] I remember someone saying they heard Won Bin sing at a dinner party and that he had a good voice. Of course he wasn't exceptionally talented or anything but HOT was always focused more on dancing and rapping than singing. Won Bin wouldn't have been a good fit anyway since his image is more refined and classy, he would've stuck out like a sore thumb between the other members. I also think he'd be a bad dancer.


Park Soo Jin reps confirm it was a premature birth

Article: Park Soo Jin's premature birth, "It's true the birth was early but he's healthy without any issues"

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+736, -31] He might've been a premature birth but she was blessed to have still been able to give birth naturally without any issues. Congratulations on becoming parents!

2. [+677, -48] It's not like it was a shotgun wedding, no need for her to get any hate for it. I'm glad she had a healthy birth, congratulations~~

3. [+540, -24] Congratulations. She was blessed to have both her and the baby healthy despite the premature birth. The baby probably wanted to see his parents so badly that he came out early.

4. [+46, -9] I had a premature birth at 34 weeks too. My daughter was born at 2.27 kg and she's now 9 months and is growing fine, looks just like she any other baby. As small as the birth was, just raise him bigger and stronger ^^ congratulations

5. [+43, -5] My friend gave birth at 9 months too and she doesn't smoke, drink, or even say any swears but her baby is growing big and strong.

6. [+41, -20] I had a feeling something felt off when a pregnant woman kept shooting pictorials and whatnot. She's already so wealthy, not sure why she's so greedy. I guess it ended up in a premature birth anyway.

7. [+36, -6] You're safe to give birth past the 34 week mark. You don't need to wait for the full 40 weeks. The lungs are done developing by 34 weeks so you can give birth any time after that. There are a ton of healthy babies that are born before that too because of advancement in medical technology. Mothers already blame themselves very hard when they give premature births so I hope she doesn't read some of the comments here.. congratulations ^^

8. [+32, -8] She gave birth at the 30 week mark though, no? But she's rich enough to probably afford the best management possible... I don't know why she kept working on TV shows after she got pregnant when her body already seemed so weak for pregnancy to begin with... what a shame.

9. [+32, -1] There's no way she got pregnant before the wedding considering the dates of it all, it doesn't match up

10. [+25, -8] Park Soo Jin was not pregnant before the wedding, stop mentioning that

11. [+21, -15] She wasn't even obligated to work through her pregnancy like other working moms, she should've just stayed home and taken care of her health but instead she was out on pictorial shoots and promoting things on SNS and going on vacation everywhere... tsk tsk

12. [+18, -5] 30 weeks is actually quite early for a birth, I'm glad the baby is healthy


Twice is happy to be promoting simultaneously with labelmate Somi's IOI

Article: Twice, "Competing with IOI? We're honored Somi won #1"

Source: Mydaily via Nate

1. [+406, -23] I wonder what Somi will do when IOI promos are over? The other members debuted in other groups before IOI promos even finished. I wish the best for Somi too ♡

2. [+361, -104] You have to admit a few of IOI are more talented than Twice in terms of skill

3. [+192, -25] Love IOI's song, love Twice's new song!! Wishing the best for both teams!!

4. [+39, -16] Maybe because the public personally chose IOI through an audition show but it's true that IOI is more talented in skills ㅋㅋ and Twice has great songs but they lack lyric delivery because they have so many foreign members. I usually have no idea what they're saying until I look up the lyrics.

5. [+24, -11] I wish IOI wouldn't disband... You can tell just by looking at DIA and Gugudan how much harder it'll be for them once they disperse. Also sad about Somi going back to being a trainee... I know that it's hard with agencies tangled in this mess but can't they figure something out?

6. [+23, -11] Keep in mind Somi's only in middle school... Once she gets 2-3 more years of vocal and dance training, I bet she'll be more popular than the current Twice with her new girl group

7. [+19, -9] ㅋㅋ Did you guys see Twice's 'Sketchbook' MR removed video? They're the bottom of the barrel when it comes to girl group talent. You can tell just in the skill difference between Twice's main vocal who trained for 10 years versus Yoojoo who was on the show the same day.

8. [+18, -20] I don't even know what YG is thinking with their Black Pink comeback next week ㅋㅋ They won't stand a chance against Twice or IOI, they'll probably just be pushed around before quietly ending their promos. Or of course, YG will keep them only on 'Inkigayo' and they'll continue acting like they're special snowflakes ㅋㅋ

9. [+16, -3] JYP really needs to fix the pronunciation of the foreign members. I have no idea what they're saying unless I read the lyrics. miss A had two Chinese members but their pronunciations in songs were great.

10. [+14, -6] Totally disappointed with Twice after seeing them on 'Sketchbook'... they can't sing live... actually, they just can't sing at all, every single one of them...


Teddy and Han Ye Seul break up after 4 years

Article: [Exclusive] Han Ye Seul and Teddy break up after 4 years... "Became distant due to busy schedules"

Source: Sports Donga via Nate

1. [+1,343, -14] They were just fine when they were even busier..

2. [+1,293, -21] Han Ye Seul made it so obvious how much she liked him too....

3. [+1,088, -55] As if Han Ye Seul barely had any international schedules. It seemed obvious that the man was less interested in her.

4. [+103, -2] Dating is fun and sweet and all but it's also something that's hard and complex... As much as you like each other, it can make you feel just as upset, nervous, or depressed.

5. [+99, -47] But even as a woman, I felt that Han Ye Seul could do better

6. [+91, -13] Ye Seul got dumped ㅋ

7. [+82, -22] How dare he dump her? ㅋㅋㅋ Who does he think he is?

8. [+68, -7] Come on, people... even if they're at marriage age, there's nothing wrong with breaking up. There are some couples that break up even after sending out their wedding invites.

9. [+66, -3] It's better to break up ASAP if the woman is at marriage age and the relationship isn't going anywhere. Break up with a guy who doesn't bring up marriage plans with you fast. He's a selfish man who isn't looking out for you.

10. [+59, -5] It must be shocking for Han Ye Seul... she seemed head over heels for him.


Source: Nate

1. [+290, -7] You never grow distant because you're too busy. It's when the love fades or you meet someone better that you grow distant...

2. [+200, -21] Hmm... Han Ye Seul made it so obvious at public events how much she liked him... I have a feeling she got dumped...

3. [+20, -2] Even after all that fuss she made with being public about him, they eventually broke up

4. [+20, -7] Anyone can tell Han Ye Seul got dumped in this one. Ask any man on the streets... if any woman comes on to him as strong as she did, men feel pressured and want a way out.

5. [+12, -5] I always knew she'd be embarrassed talking about him at public events all the time when they break up like this


Source: Naver

1. [+2,063, -58] Han Ye Seul seemed to really like him too ㅜㅜ

2. [+1,492, -58] I honestly thought they'd get married...

3. [+1,274, -40] She seemed to really like him ㅠㅠ

4. [+887, -61] There is an expiration date on love too

5. [+307, -7] She can find someone way better than him to get married to like Hwang Jung Eum or Han Hye Jin ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+327, -15] Han Ye Seul was acting way too sweet about him in public while Teddy has been so quiet... figured they would break up

7. [+284, -6] For some reason, I have more respect for Han Ye Seul because it was obvious how much passion and love she poured into this relationship. There's nothing to feel bad for her about. She lived up to the image of what we all think love is. Someone just innocently giving their all to another.

8. [+282, -10] ??? Wow after all those times she mentioned Teddy at public events, I guess it takes just a moment for it to all be worth nothing...


Park Bogum suffers with lax security in the Philippines

Article: First time seeing Park Bogum cringe... 'bad manner hands' from Filipino fans

Source: Kukmin Ilbo via Nate

1. [+1,610, -30] The security in the Philippines is a mess. If fans are able to get close enough to touch him, then any psycho can run up to him with a knife and security won't be able to do anything about it. As expected from a country rampant with crime though..

2. [+1,373, -34] Sigh, why would they stick their hands inside his clothes;; way too extreme. Can't help but notice that Bogum looks so cute all crouched like that.......

3. [+814, -27] But why can't I help but notice how cute his hands look all fisted like that? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+73, -4] Those fans should've been caught by Lee Jong Suk ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+64, -3] Just because you can touch him doesn't mean he's yours ㅠㅠㅠㅠ look how nervous he is with his hands fisted up. Just observe him from afar!!!!!!!

6. [+43, -1] Please come back to Korea, there's too much crime in the Philippines right now

7. [+40, -2] Stay within the lines!!! This is so disrespectful!!!

8. [+39, -1] Why would you ever touch someone without their permission? Skinship is a fan service given by stars during fan meets and photo opportunities, but touching someone from behind like that is harassment... And those hands look like male hands. I get that Park Bogum has a slightly feminine feel to him but is that why his male fans think it's okay to touch him? He looks like he's hating it...

9. [+37, -2] Ugh, they even stuck their hands in his clothes ㅠㅠ of course he's going to cringe in this situation. That's enough to file for sexual harassment~

10. [+35, -2] Don't touch our Bogum!!!!!!!!!!

11. [+26, -0] He looks like a puppy even cringing like that ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

12. [+26, -1] What's the point of a security team if he's exposed so vulnerable like that? What can they do in a situation of actual danger? What a mess...

13. [+26, -2] Why did the producers pick the Philippines to vacation in? And why not bring more security if they did? Someone could've easily terrorized him with a knife if they wanted to
