Dok shows off his BMW i8

Article: Dok2 shows off his BMW i8 worth 200 million won

Source: Starin via Nate

1. [+425, -46] He has that much money but it looks like he's still lacking attention...

2. [+394, -7] If someone who makes 500 million won a year lives this lavishly, I can't imagine how people like Cristiano Ronaldo must be living. Or even Mansour? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Can't be human ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+326, -13] How can he always afford all these cars. What exactly is he making his money off of?

4. [+32, -5] So a D-list celebrity lives this lavishly. Proves why people should never worry about how hard celebrities have it.

5. [+19, -9] I'm honestly jealous... a BMW i8... ㅠㅠ

6. [+17, -10] Can't help but be jealous

7. [+15, -2] What does he do for a living?

8. [+12, -2] It's not like he has kids or anything, he has no one to spend money on but himself so why not? He obviously earns a lot too. I wonder how much more lavishly celebrities of a higher status must live.. ㅋㅋ would be endless if Yoo Jae Suk or Shin Dong Yub decided to show off their wealth one day. I was so surprised when I heard Lee Kyung Kyu was paid 10 million won per episode for 'Healing Camp'

9. [+12, -1] It's like he's spending his entire fortune on cars. He probably invests all his money on things he can show off.

10. [+11, -1] Must be nice to make so much money but he should learn to be humble. Other celebrities who earn a hundred times more than he does don't need to show off to exude their wealth.

11. [+8, -0] Why is Dok2 being treated like a D-list star? There's no other Korean singer who works as hard as he does. The amount of songs he releases in a year is what other singers release in 3-4 years, and he doubles any other singer in concerts and performances. He obviously earns everything he makes so stop being jealous haters.


TV: 'Three Meals a Day' Taecyeon and Park Shin Hye

Article: 'Three Meals a Day' Taecyeon and Park Shin Hye film 'WGM'

Source: Mydaily via Naver

1. [+8,108, -266] 'Three Meals a Day' is way more fun than MBC's 'WGM Drama'

2. [+5,512, -238] Ok Binggo and Shinhyerella ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I really wish Shin Hye would come next season too ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+4,731, -619] The two match so well, I really wish they'd date. Even netizens would congratulate them because they're a perfect match. Park Shin Hye on 'Three Meals a Day' is way more fun than any 'WGM' couple..

4. [+4,161, -242] She's so pretty..

5. [+966, -81] Ok Taecyeon seems like such an innocent but healthy and strong young man. He doesn't act fake for the cameras~~ and he really seems to like Shin Hye ㅋㅋ cute

6. [+1,089, -266] Shin Hye-ya, from a male's perspective, I'd rather you date Taecyeon than Lee Jong Suk

7. [+875, -84] Taecyeon seems like the perfect man to take home to your parents... caring and all. I'd date him if I were her.

8. [+792, -47] The scenes came out so beautifully ㅎㅎ and I like how Shin Hye would accept all of Binggoo's little antics and all... Ok Binggoo doesn't even have to talk, his actions say it all ㅋ

1. [+240, -10] Yah! Just tell her you love her!!! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Kim Kwang Kyu is so funny ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+202, -24] Quite obvious that both of them aren't dating anyone right now. Seeing as how Kim Kwang Kyu's been trying to set them up, he obviously would know if they were dating other people in real life but he hooks them up with calls and everything. Like Ji Sung said, it'd be great if they kept up as oppa/dongsaeng and then kept growing their relationship ㅎ

3. [+168, -19] If Park Shin Hye really did break up with Jung Yonghwa, I wish she and Ok Taecyeon would try giving a relationship a try

4. [+50, -18] I don't know how Ok Taecyeon's like in real life but he seems like such an easygoing person ㅋ All of his reactions seem so genuine

5. [+38, -4] You can literally see hearts dripping out of Ok Taecyeon's eyes~ and Park Shin Hye's eating up those hearts as well~~ ㅎ so lovey dovey

6. [+38, -6] Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk aren't even dating... because if the were, no way would Kim Kwang Kyu try so hard to hook her up with Ok Taecyeon since he would obviously know that

7. [+33, -19] Ok Taecyeon seems like the type who would be so good to his girlfriend

8. [+32, -22] Definitely prefer Ok Taecyeon than Lee Jong Suk. Men can usually tell who's the better person by first impression.

Gender selection procedures overseas on the rise

Article: "Even an actress did it"... 'overseas pregnancies' of choosing the baby's sex on the rise

Source: SBS via Nate

Article talks about how women are going overseas for gender selection procedures at fertility clinics abroad. Such procedures are banned in Korea as it is only used to prevent genetic diseases.

1. [+635, -50] In this day and age, people are still being picky over the sex of their child? ㅋㅋ How barbaric

2. [+515, -48] The world's gotten so advanced~ I know someone who had four daughters and just gave up... the stress must be crazy. It's not about life ethics... wouldn't you be pissed too if you only got one gender for your third or fourth kid in a row? Even if it's 50:50...

3. [+421, -32] I know a relative who has four sons;;; they wanted a daughter so bad for their last but it was a son again... From what I hear, if you don't have a son as your first child, the mother-in-laws will go around asking other mothers with sons for their underwear to increase the chances of their own daughter-in-law getting a son.

4. [+64, -8] I honestly support gender selection after your third child.

5. [+61, -16] People talk about how daughters are more preferred now but reality is that people will be like "sure having a daughter's great... but you need! a son."

6. [+58, -6] I'm currently pregnant with my second child and when I'm out on the streets, grandmas and grandpas will come up to me asking about the sex and I'll say it's a daughter~~~ and they'll be like "your first is a son, right?" and when I say my first is a daughter, they tsk tsk tsk and say, "Looks like you need to have a third now"... so stressful ㅠㅠㅠ I'd honestly do gender selection if it could guarantee that my third would end up a son.

7. [+56, -9] I can kind of understand why people would want to choose the genders... especially families where they've had two daughters or sons in a row. I don't think it'd be a bad idea to let those families choose the gender of their next child. It would also encourage people to have more children...

8. [+40, -0] What does any of this matter... your child should be beautiful to you regardless of its sex. And when they're all grown up, they'll have their own lives and their own families to live and you're back on your own as a couple again. Kids are all about how you raise 'em..

9. [+36, -13] This honestly doesn't seem like something humans should be able to control... it's scary...

10. [+33, -2] I know a family who went to America to get this done... There are still households that demand a son to continue the line and for the women in those households, it might be better to just pay for gender selection than live all of your pregnancies under stress and fear, on top of repeatedly having babies hoping for a son.

11. [+28, -6] Daebak, 99% of these procedures are done to have a son... people talk all the time about how daughters are preferred but everyone's just trying to get sons. I have a friend who has a daughter and is always going on about how daughters are the best and how she doesn't care if her next baby is a daughter but I found out she has secretly been taking herbal medicine that supposedly helps in getting sons.


TV: 'Yongpal' denies plagiarism accusations to comic 'City Conquest'

Article: 'Yongpal' reps, "Suspicions of plagiarism are only attempts at ruining a drama that is doing well"

Source: Ilgan Sports via Naver

1. [+3,293, -261] I just went and read 'City Conquest' and this is utter plagiarism. I think anyone who's seen both will be able to tell that it was 100% copied, especially with how he asks the mafia boss what his blood type is.

2. [+2,423, -161] This really does seem similar

3. [+2,218, -130] The early concept of the drama is actually... a lot similar... ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+2,050, -153] Can't deny that it's similar... ㅎ

5. [+858, -29] I was wondering why the first two episodes were so good and it was because the scriptwriter plagiarized them.. and it seems she's been trying to write it out on her own now but it's been a mess ever since.

6. [+729, -13] Sure there are tons of stories out there with an heiress in a coma... and a doctor doing illegal activities... but to have them both in the same plot in two different works?

7. [+723, -33] 'City Conquest' is getting a drama adaptation too so I hope they sue this drama ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Do the producers not even know how popular this comic is that they can talk about it like that?

8. [+556, -17] Hul, it really is similar aside from the supernatural power stuff

9. [+543, -18] Yeah, this is plagiarism... she really did seal the plot...

10. [+527, -16] She should've kept plagiarizing it.. the drama started getting boring once she tried to write the plot on her own.


Source: Nate

1. [+233, -4] Judging by yesterday's episode, the only person ruining this drama is the scriptwriter herself ㅡㅡ

2. [+208, -17] The plot is way too similar

3. [+192, -6] It really is similar. From the looks of it, it seems like the scriptwriter was copying pieces of it and then tried to write the rest on her own, especially with how there were some random parts that the viewers didn't understand this week... The drama was fun at first but it's been losing it as the weeks go on. In order to get rid of this controversy, the drama's going to have to start picking it up soon but the plot just seems more and more lost in the mountains. Upsets me as someone who likes the drama ㅠ

4. [+24, -6] I wish they'd just admit the truth... how disappointing.

5. [+18, -1] It's not just a few parts that are similar but the main plot points are complete copies

6. [+18, -1] The drama was only doing well up to the 4th episode...

7. [+14, -7] What a waste of Joo Won's talents...

8. [+13, -0] Honestly the 7th and 8th episodes were so boring

Article: 'Show Me 4' Basick overtakes Song Minho for the final win

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+150, -44] Feels like they just gave Basick all the votes because they didn't like Song Minho. Both didn't do that well but I don't think Basick did that much better to deserve twice the points;;

2. [+134, -56] I'm sure even the people who were hating on Song Minho will feel that Basick doesn't deserve the win.. Song Minho did better today ㅋㅋ

3. [+98, -7] Good job to Basick and Song Minho too

4. [+43, -0] Both had good stages today... but the audience didn't give them any reactions. Can't tell if people went to see the show because they like hip hop or to just get on camera. All of the Gangnam unnis in the crowd were too busy looking pretty whenever the cameras panned to them.

5. [+42, -22] Has Basick ever shown a stage that's deserving of this win...? It doesn't feel like he won because he did well but because people didn't want Song Minho to win ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+35, -14] I'm Basick's fan and congratulate him on the win but Song Minho did better today... feels like they put all the points on him because they didn't like Song Minho. I feel bad for him now... ㅠㅠ such a huge point difference. Basick wasn't THAT much better... he's better at faster beats.

7. [+33, -9] Basick was whatever... reminds me of that time when all of the men pooled their votes for Huh Gak because they hated John Park

8. [+30, -13] Basick was so bad... I was shocked that he won. Song Minho did well, how unfortunate~

9. [+29, -3] I think last week's Song Minho vs Black Nut was the more 'finals' level stage. Today's stages were boring. 'SMTM' should not do live broadcasts again ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ it failed to go out with a bang.

10. [+28, -8] So what did Song Minho get from this show other than hate ㅠㅠ I feel bad for him ㅋㅋㅋ good luck in the future

1. [+8,031, -859] First time seeing a finals so boring

2. [+5,135, -309] Good job to Song Minho too!! Congratulations Basick!!

3. [+3,685, -223] Great job to them both ㅠㅠㅠ

4. [+3,632, -691] Basick daebak

5. [+3,260, -433] Congratulations Basick!

6. [+1,781, -72] Am I the only one who enjoyed the semi-finals more

7. [+1,877, -303] Song Minho's talented but he got more hate than recognition for his talent. He was the victim to so many witch hunts and he only got sad results from this show.

8. [+1,369, -120] Song Minho probably suffered the most from this show, fighting!! and congratulations to Basick ㅠㅠ
