Conspiracy movement finds a detour through the news rankings


Article: Taeyeon grabs Yoona by the collars 'scary leader?'

Source: Sports Chosun via Nate

1. [+883, -64] A new law has passed that allows any congressman aged 65 and over a monthly pension of $1,200 for the rest of their life. This will be taken out of our taxes. In order to cover this passing, the industry has been revealing back to back scandals. Obviously, people have caught on to their ploy by now.

2. [+643, -307] Yoona needs to practice singing

3. [+316, -150] SNSD's so cute when they play

Article: Go Young Wook's phone call recording during his supposed reflection period "I want to see you quietly, delete my Kakao Talk messages"

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+421, -8] Looks like this habit won't be fixed for the rest of his life... Aren't you even apologetic to your mother? If you shot to fame with your Chwahahaha on High Kick, you should've been satisfied and just kept working hard. Why put your parents through this? Your parents can't leave their house anymore.. No matter where your mom goes, people are going to point at her as the mother of a sexual offender.

2. [+539, -198] These are the names of the congressmen that voted against the new pension plan: (TN: omitted names)

Democratic Party - 25 members (19.7%)
Progressive Justice Party - 7 members (100%)
Unified Progressive Party - 5 members (83.3%)
Saenuri Party - 4 members (2.6%)

3. [+298, -6] If he knew that the faces of his parents were seen by everyone through TV, he should've been more careful with his actions if he had any consideration for his family at all

The best replies made me curious so I looked at the politics/society rankings to see why they were spreading the news in entertainment instead of in politics, and despite the following article having 4,000 +votes (which means it should be at #1), it was ranked 10th before falling off the rankings completely.

Article: 'They said they'd give up their perks...' Congressmen quietly pass pension law

Herald News via Nate

1. [+2,338, -25] Shouldn't they have even asked us about this before they passed it on their own? Why are they deciding their own pension?

2. [+2,065, -18] Why is such an important issue like this not in the headlines? These congressmen are seriously making swears come out of my mouth...

3. [+1,939, -27] Their greed for money sees no end.

4. [+205, -1] Why do congressmen even need pensions?

5. [+203, -5] Was Rain just bait? They're always shooting out an entertainment scandal and then trying to pass these things by without any attention. I hope all of you die before you turn 65.

6. [+134, -1] Don't use the tax money that your citizens pour sweat, blood, and tears to earn so that you can have some fun money for your retirement. There are so many people that need that money more than you.

  1. Good that this is being spotlighted now. It's not the first time scandals are being published to cover up something political.


    I think there was also rumors of GD's weed scandal being outed purposely to cover up some huge scandal with the current president..

  3. Wow, this is ridiculous!!! You get articles about no name artist like Sori rising to number one despite having no comments, yet the democratically elected government of Korea are quietly robbing citizens of money and somehow the media is covering the news up. Seriously messed up. Pensions should come from their OWN wages.

  13. Instead of pension, why don't they resolve their society's problems such as the increase in suicide rate in their country?

  18. Well, not exactly. Congressmen are elected by people and like that they are supposed to be representants of the people so the problem is WHO korean people is electing

    ReplyDelete
  19. No, the pension law applies only to former, current, and future Korean congressmen.

  20. Maybe... The actual marijuana thing where he took the drug test happened three months BEFORE it made any news. That always struck me as weird. Usually that sort of news comes out right away.

  21. Yeah Rain was just a bait ti divert the attention else where but what now?? The damage was already done..

    ReplyDelete
  22. Maybe if netizens stopped paying attention to trolling frothy articles about pop groups in the first place maybe their government couldn't get away with shit like this.

  23. i though suicide is good? reducing one less loser from society, i think we need more people doing it, especially poor people that leech on rich people and medium wealth people tax money, for their health and food and even to feed on their children, how come poor people not embarrassed on their existence and most of them shamelessly producing children while they can't even afford to properly feed them self. hopefully they passed a law that if people stay poor for more than 10 years then they will be forced to kill them-self, that way the world won't become over populated

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yeah and it's weird how he got singled out as no one else got tested or anything.

  25. you think suicide is good? don't make me laugh. Depending on what you believe, in this semi moral society, suicide is an admission that a person is truly a loser. Suicide is an act of surrender to life's challenges thus anyone who committed suicide is either a loser or someone who needed help but weren't able to be helped by others.

    In the end, it all depends from a person's point of view.

    In the case of whom to blame on why poor people are being ignorant and kept producing, I believe that with right government programs and education, these cases won't be prominent enough to be considered a problem in the society. Finding RIGHT government programs though is very hard to maintain and be funded because of corrupt government systems.

    Suicide is a complex issue though.

  26. stravdius, I hope you are just joking. . .
    Would you still think that way if one of your family members or friends died because of suicide? Your statement only shows that you are really ignorant

    ReplyDelete
  27. Um, right. It's totaly that easy.
    You sound mad that no one likes your idol's song

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, here comes the "overpopulation" bullshit.
    Since you think losers should commit suicide, why aren't you gone yet?

    ReplyDelete
  29. shame on you!!!!!
    are you even a human being!?!?!
    how can you say something so horrible like this?
    there are many people who are poor so what? who the hell are you to tell people to commite suicide ? if you say that people should commite suicide you should be the very first one to do so cause the world would be a better place without you... really if you were beside me i would just punsh you in the face!
    i don´t want to be aggressiv but really even though many people are poor they´re still human being! they deserved it as much as you do to live in this world if someone sould commite suicide it should be definitive people like you

  33. We have the same law in my country. They keep comig up with nonsensical reasons to spend our tax-money and ty to convince us to accept lower pay(of-course taxes would not be reduced). Leaving nothing to the ones that actually need it. I hope the citizens of Korea will be able to stop the dirty money-greedy government before they suck their souls out too.

  37. im kinda relieved (?) i wasnt paranoid on my own... all those scandals at once, were rather fishy... its disgusting how they backstabbed all the hallyu stars they brag about to try to save their ass O__o AND that law is insane... i know every country is different but where i live you kinda pay social security, pay taxes that go to social security too then get a pension when you retire according to age... and then there are agencies(?) that have private security... you give them ur money and then when you retire they give you a pension with the money you gave them i think... is there nothing called private security or similar in SK? im really curious... i'd lke to understand why they need to be paid... its like people need to pay taxes to support the congressmen? wth?

  38. What the actual fuck. You're fucking scum of the earth. People like you are the death of humanity. Fuck you and your family.

  39. LOL it's not about the population or the poor people. I think she is talking more about the student suicides. There are many teenagers today that are pressured in their studies especially in Korea. You can say they are just like Japan and India. Also another cause of high rates of Suicides are the rampant bullying in Schools too. So if you think that those children who are just so young and deserved to have their own lives taken because society is being a big bitch to them well pal I'd call you as a heartless bitch..

  42. "Shouldn't they have even asked us about this before they passed it on their own?" --> u shoulda ask how Korean citizen gonna do this. Congressmen elected to make law. Whether they think for the whole citizen or themselves, that's their morality talking
