FNC's market value takes a hit after news of Jimin's scandal

Source: Korea Econ via Nate

1. [+2,114, -19] Their stocks aren't dropping because of Kwon Mina but because of Shin Jimin's actions

2. [+1,617, -12] FNC deserves this... they took in a bunch of minors and didn't bother to take responsibility for them. They were bystanders all the same... the absolute worst.

3. [+1,445, -11] Good riddance, FNC needs to be delisted

4. [+105, -0] So what if they lost 3.9 billion won? It's barely a blip compared to how much it went up when Yoo Jae Suk joined. AOA's not even some top girl group. FNC needs to put out a better apology than the joke they released. FNC has no one to blame but themselves for birthing such a monster like Jimin. They need to come back out with a better apology and screw off with that nonsense about Jimin's activities being halted since her career is as good as over. 

5. [+75, -0] The article is phrased in a way that makes it sound like FNC's stocks are dropping because of Kwon Mina. She's the victim, don't blame any of this on her. 

6. [+72, -1] Jimin is rock bottom in both looks and character

7. [+45, -1] That's fine, Jimin can compensate for the losses

8. [+39, -2] The public has turned on FNC because of Shin Jimin's lack of character so of course their stocks are going to drop ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+39, -1] Jae Suk hyung, hurry up and get out of there

10. [+32, -2] Sung Ho-ya, remember when you were poor? Let's get you back to those roots, yeah?

11. [+28, -0] FNC was already trash before Jimin outed them

Black Pink's hanbok designer hopes to make hanbok a worldwide fashion trend

Source: Yonhap News via Naver

1. [+1,421, -330] I personally think that traditional hanboks are the prettiest~~

2. [+1,014, -33] Although they may not be hanboks in the traditional sense, I think there's meaning in altering it to match the changing times and spreading it around the world

3. [+529, -73] I'm completely for the modernization of hanboks. Fashion is the most sensitive industry to change so how can you have a piece of clothing that rejects change? Leave that kind of stuff for the museums.

4. [+148, -5] I think change is fine. Hanboks have gone through many different iterations from the Three Kingdoms to Goryeo and Joseon. Now that we're in the 21st century, we should have a 21st century version as well.

5. [+117, -56] She has only been working in the hanbok industry for two years. I'm questioning how much she could actually know and understand about the hanbok. What she created was just a stage outfit using the hanbok as a motif. You could never call that an actual hanbok.

6. [+76, -26] It's not a hanbok, though. It's one inspired by it.

7. [+34, -2] I think she did her part in spreading Korean culture worldwide. Good job!!

8. [+43, -16] Our clothing should have standards too. You can't just call anything a hanbok because it uses hanbok materials. China and Japan have their own traditional clothes. The clothes that the designer is wearing in the last picture... I'm not sure if it's a modernized version of a Chinese style or Korean style at all. You can modernize hanboks but you can't just pull in points from different cultures because it'll just look generically Asian to the eyes of westerners.

9. [+44, -25] I don't think she should call her styles hanbok... I'd rather she call them creative ideas inspired by traditional hanboks and create a brand out of that instead. As a Korean person, the inaccuracy bothers me.

10. [+12, -1] I respect the opinions of people who want to keep it traditional as well as the opinions of people who think we should flow with the changing times. I also respect the opinions of people who want to revolutionize ideas for the future. As such, I think three different types of hanboks exist now. We can't just obsess over one because that will mean we're going backwards.


Illionaire Records announces disbandment

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+725, -30] Illionaire has no ill (il = work)

2. [+632, -67] Who cares what these hip hop losers do ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+569, -50] This is why having a good leader is important... look at how YG is failing...

4. [+79, -1] Have they gone bankrupt from the watch purchases?

5. [+49, -2] Dok2 built it, Dok2 crumbled it

6. [+40, -0] It's all because of Dok2

7. [+38, -0] I think plans for disbandment were already underway but the coronavirus just spread it. Their income stream was taken away since these artists rely on performing at events for income.

8. [+32, -2] Trot took all the attention from hip hop

9. [+32, -7] Looks like they can't do anything without Dok2

10. [+19, -0] Honestly, I'll give credit where it's due. Korean hip hop wasn't much other than Baechigi and Outsider before Illionaire came up and shows like 'Show Me the Money' started getting popular. I bet all the people saying "hip hop losers" have at least one hip hop song in their playlists.

11. [+18, -1] They'll probably set up their own agencies now

12. [+13, -1] This is the same as ending a group chat because Dok2 wouldn't leave it ㅋㅋㅋ


Former AOA member Yookyung alludes to being bullied as well

Source: Sports Chosun via Nate

1. [+1,190, -46] She apologized last time for writing an ambiguous post and there she goes again, writing another ambiguous post

2. [+902, -43] Unless you're going to come out and say something clear like "Jimin and the other members did this", just stay quiet because it's noisy enough as it is 

3. [+737, -28] I think she's trying to say she was bullied by the other AOA members too... seems like it's true that the other members took part in it on bullying Mina. I'm thankful that she survived those 10 years, and I hope she knows that it's okay to let those 10 years go..

4. [+63, -7] Still just as ambiguous

5. [+50, -3] What is she saying?

6. [+48, -2] Ambiguously confusing the first time, just as ambiguously confusing the second time~~~

7. [+42, -4] Uh...? What's the point of her post?

8. [+40, -0] I think she's trying to say that she was hurt too and thought of everyone as bystanders but now realizes that Mina was hurting too... and that she couldn't notice Mina's pain because she was in pain too.. Choa quit because of depression, Chanmi got treatment for depression, now Mina... seems like the members had it rough.

9. [+35, -1] She's trying to say that she thought she was the only one hurting at the time but realized that others were hurting because of Jimin too

10. [+33, -6] Didn't she quit the group as soon as AOA quit being a band? I don't think she's that important of a figure in this.


Source: Top Star News via Nate

1. [+4,165, -28] Did she bully Choa too????

2. [+3,869, -35] Jimin was just a thug

3. [+2,781, -24] Whenever Choa would leave her phone and wallet in a locker at event halls, Jimin would take them out and hide them, which Choa expressed already that she hated. Jimin's just not a good person. There's nothing worse than having to deal with someone who's not even worth regarding as human so it seems like what's rotting was finally burst open within the group. 

4. [+373, -1] I remember Ladies Code's Eunbi said in an interview that she was prepping to debut with AOA but left because of someone bullying her, now I can definitely see who that person is

5. [+335, -3] It's pretty obvious what happened ㅋㅋㅋ Jimin and Seolhyun purged Choa because she was the most popular member... and then spread rumors that the reason she left was because of pregnancy or to get married ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+298, -3] It's always the Chihuahua looking ones with the poisonous personalities

7. [+184, -1] There's just no end to this~ If Choa really left the group because of Jimin.... I just can't. FNC is proving that they're makjang right now.

8. [+171, -1] Choa was smart to leave when she did

9. [+163, -1] To put in perspective how horrible Jimin is, it's usually over for an idol once they get into a sex scandal but even with a dorm sex scandal, Jimin has so many other crazy stories that the actual sex scandal got overlooked ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+140, -4] Our Choa ㅜㅜ


Source: Sports Donga via Nate

1. [+981, -56] Seolhyun needs to be buried with her..

2. [+952, -21] As you live on in life, you'll come to realize what the phrase birds of a feather means.. There's just no way these two could've been so close unless they shared the same values... Seolhyun = Jimin

3. [+909, -47] Seolhyun? That girl who suddenly went around saying she beat Suzy because of one CF? 

4. [+77, -4] Seolhyun's the worst

5. [+74, -1] Seolhyun is a bystander

6. [+70, -5] This is not just any fire. When she started crying over her Kinddokkang scandal, I could let it go for being cute, but not only is this scandal such a disappointment on her, but I actually feel hatred and disgust. Seolhyun had enough influence within AOA to maintain balance but I don't know if she was too dumb to realize that or if she's just a selfish person but I have to admit that I'm filled with nothing but hatred and disappointment for her. Her career is over. She better live as quietly as she can with the money she's saved.

7. [+68, -1] It's actually a very cruel thing to torment and embarrass someone who's innocent

8. [+66, -1] Everyone is birds of a feather. Couples, friends... Victims will never forget the pain, and the mental anguish will never go away.

9. [+56, -4] It's 10 years, you devils. 10 years that she trusted you guys to do something but instead you ignored her. How hurt must she have felt for her to consider suicide? Seolhyun!!!!! You're so fake. I still remember your tears from your Kinddokkang scandal. Thinking about it now makes me realize how fake you are. Your responsibility in this is not light. You better retire.

10. [+49, -2] I can't even stand Seolhyun's CFs, swap out the model


Source: Korea Ilbo via Nate

1. [+2,870, -20] The bystanders and the agency are all accomplices

2. [+2,418, -19] Disbanding is the only option. Don't think of embarrassing yourselves by continuing~

3. [+2,089, -19] Of course fans should turn their backs

4. [+170, -4] I no longer wish to see them, especially Seolhyun... farewell

5. [+166, -3] Seolhyun out

6. [+136, -2] Seolhyun's luck has run its course

7. [+115, -4] I'll let Choa slide for cutting ties early

8. [+114, -4] How lowly did she think of the members to bring a man back to their dorm, tsk tsk

9. [+97, -3] I doubt it was just Mina that Jimin acted this way to. Probably did it to all of them except Seolhyun, just that Mina was the weakest and had to take the brunt of it.

10. [+89, -3] I thought the group was being revived thanks to 'Queendom' but I guess this is how it ends for them. Farewell.

Son Ye Jin to star in Hollywood movie 'Cross' with Sam Worthington

Source: Star News via Nate

1. [+772, -41] Sam Worthington was the star in 'Avatar', this is daebak.. but I wonder how Son Ye Jin's English is

2. [+767, -26] I thought the title said Sam Hammington for a second

3. [+578, -49] She's too pretty to play the role of a poor character... ㅋㅋㅋ But a Hollywood advancement is one of the biggest honors as an actress so congratulations~!!

4. [+40, -0] Sounds like another plot with the white people as the rich country and the Asians as the poor...

5. [+31, -12] Wow, I'm proud of her. She's great at acting so I know she'll pull this off.

6. [+27, -1] I hope they don't put American style make up on her like the gyopos;;

7. [+22, -3] You could put soot all over her face and she still wouldn't look poor. I bet she could even look pretty in zombie make up...

8. [+20, -2] I noticed Hollywood always casts ugly looking Asian actors. Son Ye Jin will be like a burst of light in Hollywood.

9. [+18, -5] Congratulations to Son Ye Jin

10. [+15, -7] But can she speak English? ㅋ
