1. [+416, -80] ...? Isn't the answer definitely Han Hye Jin?

2. [+339, -62] What comparison... obviously Han Hye Jin~

3. [+313, -65] It's like comparing a celebrity to a commoner

4. [+48, -10] I like Suzy but let's be real, her beauty is not nearly on par with any actress

5. [+44, -0] Han Hye Jin is a traditional beauty while Suzy's cute

6. [+44, -6] I thought someone blurred Suzy out for a second ㅋㅋ Han Hye Jin really has clear/distinct features

7. [+39, -8] Actress >> idol

8. [+39, -14] Han Hye Jin's how old now...? And yet she still looks better than someone younger

9. [+38, -7] Since when did idols ever be allowed to be compared to actresses? Han Hye Jin has everything from beauty to class, how could you compare someone immature and lacking of manners like Suzy to her?

10. [+33, -9] Han Hye Jin has a celebrity face... while Suzy is on the pretty side among commoners


Article: [SS Juke Box] Idols, are you listening? This is what Cho Yong Pil's music is

1. [+763, -57] Don't hate on idols. They don't even deserve to be brought up in the same conversation as a legend like Cho Yong Pil. It pisses me off to see his status lowered by having idols mentioned around his name.

2. [+689, -44] We need to restructure this whole idol thing. Get rid of every single idol that is barely making it in the competition. TEEN TOP? B1A4? Who are these nobodies?

3. [+474, -44] What a refreshing title

4. [+367, -40] Buy his CD and listen to it. The sound is just on another level... Now, people might prefer the impressive dance moves of an idol but wait for a few years to pass, you'll wonder to yourself why you ever liked them. Idol music now shouldn't even be considered music. I'm glad older singers are making a comeback.

5. [+264, -18] A 64 year old ajusshi managed to beat them all in the end. Doesn't matter if you don't have the visuals, gotta win with your singing talent first and foremost. Idols are dancers, not singers.

6. [+178, -17] Since when were idols considered singers???

7. [+184, -24] Since idols can't make it with their singing, they try to get popular with gimmicks like humorous music videos and stripping for girl groups. Music died once we hit 2000... I now realize why Cho Yong Pil is called the king after listening to trash for so long.

8. [+142, -9] I don't hate idols. They got to where they are through hard work. What I do, however, want them to learn from seniors like Cho Yong Pil is that that doesn't mean their journey is over.

9. [+124, -19] Definitely better than gay-pop songs that shouldn't even be considered songs

10. [+45, -4] I like idol music but I want groups to start getting rid of all of those extra members who stand in the front for their looks when they don't even have vocal talent... They're like leeches ㅋㅋㅋ
