Article: After her scandal with Eunhyuk... IU "Sorry for gaining a bit of weight while I caused such a mess"

Came back to my desk to find IU's article ranked in 2nd so I thought something had happened until realizing that the article was about her Christmas message last year...
1. [+314, -7] Seems like the journalist stuffed himself full of sleeping pills on Christmas day and woke up today
2. [+217, -7] I predict that the daesang winners of the 2012 Entertainment Awards will be Shin Dong Yub, Park Myung Soo, and Yoo Jae Suk.
3. [+104, -12] Wow... There are no replies ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Obviously, the rest of the comments were also humoring the journalist, pretending that we are still in 2012...
"I also heard that it was going to snow tomorrow on Christmas~"
"I really like the Oh Yeon Seo and Lee Joon couple on WGM, I wish they'll start dating for real ^^"
"Man, I have a feeling there's going to be a second Yun Jung Hoon coming up soon..."
"Kim Tae Hee's getting old, she should start dating soon..."
"There might be some controversy with the MBC Drama Awards... I think Ahn Jae Wook will win the daesang but Jo Seung Woo might come in and steal it, so who knows!"
"When will the drama 'Light and Shadow' end, anyone know?"
"I heard that there's going to be a new pension law for congressmen.. We should all go become congressmen for one day before it passes!"
"Why are people saying Rain is dating Kim Tae Hee? He's too busy serving and protecting our country right now! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ"
Aside from the humor, there are also a fair bit of media play accusations because the article is just so... random... and shot to the top out of no where, as well as proponents of the conspiracy movements.
Korean journalism... What can I say.
