Seo In Young reps apologize for her emotional outburst + closes SNS

Article: 'Swearing controversy' Seo In Young reps, "We apologize for causing a disturbance with her emotional attitude" [official]

Source: Ilgan Sports via Naver

1. [+28,509, -675] It's already over for you, farewell~

2. [+22,843, -364] It's not even a direct apology from her

3. [+20,896, -410] Already saw your true colors

4. [+15,971, -371] Bye~

5. [+13,688, -421] Much too late for an apology...;;;;

6. [+4,845, -64] So that post from that staff was right... sigh... so disappointing

7. [+4,606, -64] The phrase "know your place" is very appropriate for her...

8. [+4,328, -58] It's already over for her anyway ㅋㅋ you can continue acting like you're a ssen top star or whatever ㅋㅋ


Source: Nate

1. [+2,315, -62] By apologizing for only the part where she swore, she's making it sound as if she was quiet the entire time and is only getting all this hate because she chose to respond in a swear... quite sly of her... By what the staff wrote, she surpassed that

2. [+2,142, -52] I don't want to see her on TV anymore, that's that. I really hate her.

3. [+2,001, -50] Your true colors just showed, that's all

4. [+163, -7] I feel like this video was released by a staff on purpose because she had enough of her attitude. Obviously staff are expected to keep things on tight security so for someone to risk their careers and leak it like this must mean it got so out of hand... and to even mention the main scriptwriter and involve her in this means they're going all out for her.

5. [+144, -5] Block her from ever appearing on TV again. This isn't the first time this b*tch has acted up like this. She even calls seniors who are older than her by the first names. What a cocky b*tch.


Article: Seo In Young closes SNS account after it gets rampaged by criticism

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+1,810, -40] Seems like all of the former Jewelry members have issues. Jo Minah, Seo In Young, Ha Jooyeon, Yewon ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ how do they only choose members with such poor character ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1,635, -31] One member is off swearing at a scriptwriter way older than her, another's running a bakery shop and charging exorbitant prices, another's on 'Unpretty' swearing at kids... Park Jung Ah must've had it really hard with these members

3. [+1,296, -17] Why close her SNS? Why not act like the tough unni she thinks she is?? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+135, -1] If Seo In Young was really the victim in this, I bet she would've responded to all of the criticisms knowing her personality but for her to close it down like this just means that even she's having a mental breakdown

5. [+91, -1] We don't know what exactly went down but if this is how she treats people on the regular, she deserves to be exiled from the industry

2. [+1,180, -56] So much love in their eyes~

3. [+1,082, -44] Wow, Kim Tae Hee is so pretty...

4. [+56, -11] Oh so she wore a mini dress because she had to do mass... antis kept going on about how her mini dress looked tacky but it's more practical for her because she has to kneel to pray

5. [+49, -6] She looks good in a simple dress without the need for a tiara or earrings~~~

6. [+41, -4] So pretty, dress is pretty too. I usually don't like dresses that show a ton of cleavage. They look so happy together.

7. [+39, -6] They look so good together, it brings tears to my eyes. She always seemed like she had an easygoing personality and her choice of dress and venue reflects that. Doesn't seem like the type to care for flashy things.

8. [+38, -8] Look at how pretty her hands look in prayer... be happy!

1. [+753, -24] Kim Tae Hee looks like an angel in that picture of her praying...

2. [+658, -30] When pictures of their backside were first released, everyone kept going on about how she should've worn a longer dress but now that we see the front, her face more than makes up for it... pretty ㅜㅜㅜ I hope they are happy ^^

3. [+464, -21] The dress is so pretty... ㅎㅎ it matches her well

4. [+55, -4] This dress looks way more appropriate for the setting than one that shows cleavage and shoulders and all... Kim Tae Hee and Rain seem like such smart people.

5. [+53, -4] Looks like Rain is getting married to a doll... unreal

6. [+44, -7] She has more than enough credentials to get married into a chaebol family but it shows that she cares more about marrying the right person than wealth


Article: [Exclusive] Kim Tae Hee's lace wedding dress "She personally designed it"

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

1. [+930, -32] She got married in a Catholic church so her simple one piece matched more than a flashy wedding dress. It's Kim Tae Hee after all, what could she not pull off..

2. [+789, -36] The dress looks fine, it's none of our business what she chooses to wear as long as she likes it for her own wedding

3. [+581, -18] I hope she lives a happy life with the man who calls her his greatest gift in life...

4. [+48, -4] Quite obvious that she designed something simple and classy since it's a church wedding... some people just seem too jealous and wanting to hate ㅋㅋㅋ sigh, be happy ♥

5. [+38, -3] She is the only female celebrity to have such a low-cost, simple wedding. She's the best in everything from looks to inner character to intelligence.

6. [+32, -5] One of the most beautiful pictures I've seen recently...

7. [+31, -2] Pretty sure Kim Tae Hee majored in fashion design... very cool of her to design her own dress! People who aren't minding their own business should be jealous of her skills

8. [+30, -4] As long as unni is happy and comfortable with her dress.. I'm all for it!!!! Have a happy life you two!!


Article: Rain ♥ Kim Tae Hee, the wedding of the century only cost 1.3 million won

Source: Sports Chosun via Nate

1. [+1,383, -32] Probably the most ideal wedding without the need for flashy things

2. [+1,099, -29] It was a wedding that truly showed that you can achieve happiness with nothing but the right partner. Unlike weddings that seem to try to show their happiness through how much money they spent on it...

3. [+1,020, -57] Yup, weddings in Catholic churches do cost 1.3 million won~ I pray for their happiness~

4. [+47, -4] I wish I was rich enough for a small wedding like this. But reality is that my parents invested so much already that the rest of us regular folks have to have flashy weddings to make up for the costs. It's really only the rich who can actually afford to have low-cost weddings ㅠ

5. [+35, -6] Something we can all learn from. Lee Na Young and Won Bin had a small, private wedding as well. No need to spend so much money on an impersonal wedding that looks like everyone else's. I really hope that celebrities like them change Korea's obsession with showing off and keeping face.

2. [+1,015, -21] Omo, then could there be another marriage in the works....? :)

3. [+958, -25] Hul, maybe she'll get married to Yoon Kye Sang

4. [+49, -2] Rain and Yoon Kye Sang both went to Kyunghee University while Kim Tae Hee and Honey Lee both went to Seoul University at the same time..

5. [+48, -3] It's so cool how Rain and Yoon Kye Sang are close and their wife/girlfriend are close too

2. [+916, -35] Ahh that last picture of them looking at each other, I can just see the honey dripping from their eyes ㅠㅠ

3. [+864, -67] So many people gave her crap about her dress looking weird... but she looks fine ㅠㅠ a goddess like no other...

4. [+53, -13] Amazing of Kim Tae Hee... stuck with him even through the times when everyone was against her boyfriend and even after he did something disappointing... She stayed quiet and stuck by his side. It's no easy feat what she did.

5. [+29, -6] Almost choked up at how sweet they looked in that photo... ㅠㅠ I've been Rain's fan for 16 years... I hope that you live a happy happy life with oppa!!

2. [+392, -2] They dated for 5 years without any scandals and held a small, quiet wedding like this ㅠㅠ the pictures released today look gorgeous... Rain looks so cool, Kim Tae Hee looks so pretty ㅠㅠ

3. [+389, -7] I love that their wedding was small. Very simple and quiet, just a private moment to reflect on their relationship together. None of the fuss that would come with unnis chasing you around to fluff your dress, reporters everywhere taking pictures of you, not being able to spend time together because you're busy being pushed from guest to guest... These two are smart.

4. [+385, -10] The best proposal... a handwritten letter... a wedding totaling to 1.3 million won... personally invited guests without any invitation cards... no honeymoon trip... so good to see, live a happy life you two

5. [+350, -7] The fact that they dated for 5 years and stuck through till the end shows that the man is genuinely in love with her... be happy

6. [+335, -4] It doesn't matter how simple their wedding is because they shine as people themselves


[Pann] Suzy's 2015 pictorial under controversy for brothel/lolita vibes?

Instiz: Suzy in hot waters over lolita + prostitution concept controversy

"This is pretty bad..."

"These pictorials are normally planned out extensively so this is quite disappointing..."

"It's quite obvious what concept they were going for..."

"There are a lot of suspicious things about this pictorial from the posing, the camera angles, etc... Why does she have a necktie wrapped around her head? Even if Suzy wanted a vintage, retro concept at a barber shop, there were other angles and poses she could've done. There's just something about the pictures that give off a sexual feeling to them..."

"It just looks retro to me ㅜㅜㅜㅜ I don't think anyone who bought the photobook considered it lolita..."

"Something about the pictures look scary"

"Yeah there are a couple pictures that made me go huk"

"The photographer himself said that there were no lolita intentions so I don't think it's anything to talk about ㅋㅋㅋ"
- It's obviously controversial because people see lolita elements in it regardless of what his intentions were
- I think it's questionable as to why she's posing like that in a barber shop...
- Well Rotta denies that his pictures are lolita influenced as well even though it's clear to the naked eye. His feedback makes no sense. Way too many lolita elements to just call it a coincidence.

"I understand that Suzy wanted to go with that dirty, sexy type of look but she went too far. There are a lot of people who got different vibes from her photos and that requires feedback in itself."

"Even if that wasn't her intention, there are elements that are seen that way by the public which is why it's a problem..."

"Yeah, some of these pictures clearly look like lolita was the intention..."


Instiz: Suzy's pictorial grows in controversy

"It's not just one person that's claiming it has lolita elements but the majority of the people who've seen her photos... feedback is absolutely necessary."

"These are some off putting pictures."

"I wouldn't call it lolita, they look more like prostitution photos to me."

"Yeah, a few of these look lolita to me"

"There's definitely some type of sex appeal going on here ㅠㅠㅠㅠ not necessarily lolita but that whole prostitution/brothel vibe is present"

"I wouldn't call it lolita but there's a weird vibe going on in all of the pictures..."

"Yeah, I thought of a brothel when I saw these pictures... just the overall vibe of it."

"It straight up looks lolita to me.. ㅠㅠ"

"This is blatantly lolita..."

"I really wish photographers would stop choosing concepts that bring controversy like this. Agencies need to do a better job of screening as well ㅠㅠ controversies don't happen out of no where"

"It looks lolita to me. The fairy tale books, the expressionless face, the poses, the camera angles that look like you're peeking at her... and the overall vibe of the place looks like a brothel, very dark and gloomy..."

"It's off putting, that's for sure"

"There's definitely a weird vibe in these pictures"

"I thought of a brothel just from the first picture alone"

"The pictures look sexual to me, but I don't know if I'd call them lolita."


Source: Pann

1. [+259, -177] I hate how everyone calls any pictorial concept a lolita controversy now just to hate

2. [+254, -131] The photographer himself said that the fairy tale book was already at the barber shop because it belonged to the owner's grandson. The photoshoot at the barber shop was very spontaneous to begin with. If you check out the photographer's instagram, none of his pictures have a lolita feel to them. I don't see Suzy acting like a child in any of these photos. And by the way, this is a personal photobook so you're infringing copyrighy by posting the photos.

3. [+225, -95] This is copyringht infringement

4. [+182, -104] This is totally a mix of brothel vibes + lolita elements. The way she's wearing oversized clothing, has a man's necktie wrapped around her, pigtails, that comment saying "daddy", thick make up with see through clothing and a sign that says 'welcome', hugging a teddy bear on the sofa... the intentions are all there.

5. [+177, -107] ???????? People are overreacting... why are so many female communities so sensitive to lolita things... come on, knock it off

6. [+166, -85] This isn't even worth defending because there's nothing lolita about this;; are you all blind??? If this is controversial, then I guess all female celebrities should just stick to doing abstract Vogue photoshoot all their lives;; this is just a vintage pictorial

7. [+120, -14] Isn't it obvious to anyone that there are lolita intentions here? Imagine if Sulli had a photoshoot like this, the reactions would be vastly different.

8. [+104, -39] The vibe is so scary... looks like photos taken of mentally disabled girls who work at brothels in the countryside

9. [+98, -22] Wow, the lolita elements are undeniable.. are you seriously all so dumb as to be missing them or are you so blind in defending her that you just refuse to see???

10. [+87, -4] The hypocrisy is unreal in these comments. The best replies are defending her saying this photoshoot was spontaneous and that none of it had any intentions and yet IU's music videos were dissected down to the props. And another of Suzy's best replies are even worried about copyright infringement ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

11. [+80, -3] Under the photo of her on four on the bench, it describes her as 'she really looks like she doesn't listen' which is normally what you say to a little girl, not a grown woman

12. [+69, -9] Suzy was a part of the concept planning process from the beginning, she's no different from IU

13. [+60, -12] Yeah, something about the vibe of the pictures just makes me feel weird...

4. [+1,186, -136] Wow, the cheers were crazy loud ㅋㅋㅋ I'm a Once but I was still taken by surprise

5. [+1,294, -188] Every award ceremony just gets turned into an EXO concert because there are so many f*cking EXO fans

6. [+1,012, -143] Once here, congratulations to EXO on winning daesang (thought it was an EXO concert today)

7. [+1,048, -188] Congratulations on daesang ㅠㅠ

8. [+941, -94] Congratulations to everyone who won awards!!♡


Article: 'Seoul Music Awards' EXO wins daesang fourth year in a row... BTS 4 crowns, Twice 3 crowns

1. [+100, -66] Who is BTS and why did they win so many awards

2. [+89, -22] Whatever ㅋㅋ I'm sure everyone agrees with EXO, BTS, and Twice winning awards ㅋㅋㅋ but the Hallyu star award and NCT winning rookie?? Are you serious?? Were they just participation awards?? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+59, -23] BTS ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ that name is so funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I have heard of their name a few times and I guess their name is working because it's stuck in my head. I could never forget a name like that. They're probably famous if they won this many awards? EXO and Twice are both groups that the entire nation knows and all age groups so..

4. [+43, -37] Do EXO fans not have any manners? Why would they ever think it was okay to shout EXO EXO right before they announce the daesang winner? And their constant screaming was so annoying

5. [+35, -27] So disgusted with EXO fans screaming every time they saw EXO

3. [+475, -36] Twice delivers....!

4. [+458, -35] Triple crown daebak!!!!! This is just the beginning, Twice

5. [+172, -5] One thing's for sure, the fans at this award ceremony are so low class, absolutely no manners for any of the other artists


Article: Zico, "Please give attention to the talented artists who have no opportunities on stage"

Source: SpoTV News via Nate

1. [+600, -35] I have to agree with him on this. It seems like Korea only considers idols to be singers but being a singer requires that you be good at singing and the singers who really are good at singing never get opportunities on stage. The big companies need to reflect over this. Ridiculous how groups we've never heard of are out on stage winning awards and getting longer stage time than their seniors ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+514, -39] That was a respectful statement by him worthy of praise

3. [+421, -29] He's right though

4. [+30, -5] Of course his stupid fangirls are praising him because he's acting all smart ㅋㅋㅋ this is why it's so easy to steal fangirl money

5. [+16, -6] Pump and dump~


Source: Naver

1. [+1,207, -42] He's right, there are so many hidden gems we haven't discovered

2. [+921, -39] He really is right though. There are probably a ton of good singers we don't know about yet.

3. [+1,320, -277] Just look at NCT... winning off of SM's back

4. [+692, -60] That's a respectful statement by him..

5. [+1,094, -247] Other singers could've gotten 3-4 more stages if SM just cut back on their power a bit

6. [+199, -16] Looks like Zico knows a lot of talents around him who haven't seen the spotlight yet

7. [+148, -5] The public knows that... but we can't do anything about it because we never see them at award ceremonies

8. [+159, -10] Sad that BtoB didn't attend.. first Golden Disc and now this ceremony, I don't know why they don't get invited to these ceremonies when they have enough recognition for it. Anyway, congratulations Zico.

5. [+202, -23] Taeyeon nuna, congratulations on bonsang, and congratulations to EXO and Girlfriend too!

6. [+47, -1] I honestly think producers screwed up by flashing other singers on the screen in the middle of singers giving their award speeches

7. [+67, -9] Wow, I seriously want to shoot whoever came up with the idea of adding crowd reactions to the award standards. Why would you do that, you're supposed to be there to enjoy the ceremony, not be a part of the equation

8. [+54, -6] What is up with the ceremony adding crowd reactions to the award standards? That's basically just saying that they're only going to give awards to one specific group.

1. [+445, -33] Honestly Black Pink and IOI had successful songs and a lot of attention but what the heck is with NCT winning?

2. [+374, -29] Who is this nugu male idol group? What even is their debut song?

3. [+219, -28] Congratulations Black Pink, you girls were great at your live and looked so, so pretty

4. [+36, -7] Would NCT even have won that rookie award if not for being under SM

5. [+35, -5] I've seriously never heard of any of NCT's songs and yet they won rookie? Shouldn't awards be based on how much the public knows, not just the teens?

6. [+30, -5] NCT will go down in history as SM's worst failure...

7. [+23, -7] Black Pink's 'Whistle' is still #19 on Melon and it's been 6 months since it was released. They deserve to win rookie but who is this male group anyway?

8. [+21, -5] Who is NCT??? First time hearing about these nugus


Source: Naver

1. [+2,594, -175] Yup, Black Pink and IOI deserve it for sure

2. [+2,514, -447] Wouldn't it have been better to give it to Bolbbalgan Sachungi instead of NCT or whatever that group's name is?? I'm so sick of big companies shoving their power down every ceremony's throat. Screw that.

3. [+2,346, -431] I've never heard of this NCT group at all but they're winning awards at every ceremony. Who are they? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Are they from a big company???

4. [+2,067, -386] What is up with this NCT group;; I understand Black Pink and IOI winning but I don't even remember what NCT's song was;; All SM does is media play for them and look at them winning awards now;;

5. [+256, -21] The difference in crowd cheers is way too big ㅠㅠ you guys realize this isn't your personal concert hall, right? ㅠㅠ


Nam Taehyun incites more dating rumors with actress Ryeo Won

Source: Joongang Ilbo via Nate

1. [+347, -4] These two are dating. I won't go into details but the reason why he left Winner has to do with Ryeo Won.

2. [+282, -5] Well this is undeniable...

3. [+237, -7] Hul, totally undeniable

4. [+64, -13] But why... would Ryeo Won date a kid like Nam Taehyun...?

5. [+63, -9] Why are people saying Ryeo Won could do better? ㅋㅋ She's 13 years older than him, not really a top star... If you think on the flip side, Nam Taehyun could do better by dating a way younger and prettier girl than her. They're dating because they deserve each other ㅋㅋ and they resemble each other in the same way that they're both pretentious

6. [+57, -5] He's the male Sulli....

7. [+54, -1] The fact that he deleted it that fast makes the answer obvious. He really wanted to make it obvious ^^

8. [+45, -5] Ryeo Won has to be the only woman on this entire earth who wears her rings like that?!

9. [+34, -0] There's nothing coincidence about this, I don't know why they bother denying it when it's undeniable

10. [+28, -0] Well this is just 100%
