  8. i hav a feeling she might be in sm's new girl group along with the girl that featured in henry's 143....

    ReplyDelete
  9. she's actually really pretty considering mostly all sm artists are half plastic...

    ReplyDelete
  10. we don't know if she's gotten plastic surgery or not

    ReplyDelete
  11. wait so the best replies are from different people not some one typing and entering a word at a time? knetz are amazing lol.

    ReplyDelete
  12. dem top comments lol

    knetz sometimes amaze me with their wit and....creativity,,,

    ReplyDelete
  13. she is cute, doesn't look plastic, and somehow has a certain charm about her. at least for me

    ReplyDelete
  14. she's really young though.

    ReplyDelete
  15. she reminds me of Sandara ^^

    ReplyDelete
  16. Just another netizenAugust 23, 2013 at 12:11 AM

    #1,2,3: I wouldn't call the Radio Star hosts, no one...they did ask about any specific trainee at SME that was worth anticipating.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow, hating on a girl. NO.

    Surprise.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm guessing it's cause SM is more strict about their social media ban

    ReplyDelete
  19. yeah. that was my feeling too.

    ReplyDelete
  20. lots of media play. ugh. even using radio star, especially kyuhyun..

    ReplyDelete
  21. best top comments since that middle finger for rain and sangchu (or was it se7en?) lmfao

    ReplyDelete
  22. Kyuhyun was not having any of that. Poor guy.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It doesn't look like she got work done, so it's a + for her. She seems kind. What is wrong with being average? Half the world is...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Isn't that broadcast old? If it's the one I'm thinking about I'm confused as to why this is just being media played

    ReplyDelete
  25. Korean netizens are so fucking hilarious sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  26. thanks to those comments, we know how many people care enough to click the article and give the upvotes lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. Nah, it just aired this week.

    ReplyDelete
  28. 2nd pic, st similar with bora

    ReplyDelete
  29. ah, can you link? I'm trying to find it

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wasn't that Sulli's doing though? She kind of cornered him into talking about her and then netizens went on a FBI hunt for this trainee.

    ReplyDelete
  31. She's pretty. And if she has Taeyeon-like voice like what was hyped, then she must be someone worthy of anticipating.
    But if not mistaken, she's a 1994 as well - similar to Sulli and Krystal, so surely there must be something that she was lacking that the other two debuted before her?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Honestly, if I was among those Kpop styled companies, I wouldn't want my trainess spending too much time invested on social networks or getting too chummy with the internet. It'd be top secret if I had a choice. Lols...
    I mean it's better than to have these crazed netizens search you like crazy and find some dirt on you...risking scandals and dislike so early on. Haha

    ReplyDelete
  33. when she debut later, i'm sure that her nose gonna be different. and then she claims that she was born that way.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I read somewhere she was dubbed as 'the second taeyeon'(?)

    ReplyDelete
  36. "worthy of Kyuhyun to fall for"
    dies

    ReplyDelete
  37. SM mediaplay is amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I was thinking that too, but maybe she joined SM after f(x)'s debut?

    ReplyDelete
  39. istg netizens bring a whole new meaning to the word 'comment'

    ReplyDelete
  40. 6. [+10, -0] She looks SO average but the amount of media play for her is amazing ㅋ

    Do you need to be goddess-like to be able to media play? And WTH is wrong in being average?

    ReplyDelete
  41. [+, -] The top three comments

    [+, -] Make this article

    [+, -] Worth clicking

    ReplyDelete
  42. I dont know why but i just laughed at the "worthy of Kyuhyun t fall for" part......i'm sorry heuuu

    ReplyDelete
  43. Knetz have an amazing humor hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh, I misunderstood. The ABC bootcamp is old, the Radio Star she was mentioned on was this weeks.

    ROFL kids have so much free time

  46. LOL sry but the "NO ONE ASKED ABOUT HER" was some good planning to have it come one after the other xD

    ReplyDelete
  47. First three replies. /dead


    How did they get them in that order?

    ReplyDelete
  48. right, lolz. that made my night:)

    ReplyDelete
  49. this is like the first media play ive heard of this seulgi girl tho..

    ReplyDelete
  50. "5. [+15, -2] The best replies are amazing ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ"

    ReplyDelete
  51. lolz, ikr! I never really seen comments like that:)

    ReplyDelete
  52. maybe because SM has so many trainees.

    ReplyDelete
  53. wait for it....

    ReplyDelete
  54. I guess SM became more strict to their trainees.

    There were a lot of popular SM trainees especially 2008 and before that year.

    Some SNSD, SHINee members were popular trainees that they even had fancafes before debut. Some were even featured in Chinese magazine/newspaper(?).

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love how people are like "No one, asked, about her" yet she shot up in the rankings so people must have been interested.


    Anyway, I want to hear her sing. If she is "the second Taeyeon" I wonder what her voice is like :o

    ReplyDelete
  56. I heard sm is debuting a girlgroup soon. I guess they're starting the media play earlier this time. she'll prob be the kai of the group aka be in 30 teasers

    ReplyDelete
  57. maybe because Sulli and Krystal trained for a longer time? and if she has Taeyeon's voice that would be awesome, I like her already.

    ReplyDelete
  58. the best comment ever... k-netizens are in the good mood today... lol-ing hard...

    ReplyDelete
  59. haha, the sense of humor is killing me:)

    ReplyDelete
  60. How they're even thinking of debuting another girl group soon when they can't even manage the groups they already have is beyond me.

    ReplyDelete
  61. When is SM's new girl group debuting? Exo already won first place, and that's usually SM's trend in debuting a new group.

    ReplyDelete
  62. agreed.

    ReplyDelete
  63. 1994??
    I thought she's like 1997-98, her face is cute .... wow

    ReplyDelete
  64. Eh, she's 19. Too young imo for plastic surgery, but it's not unusual in Korea.

    ReplyDelete
  65. well they have a lot of trainees and they're investing a lot of money in them so they have to debut them eventually.

    ReplyDelete
  66. lolz, that really made me laugh:D

    ReplyDelete
  67. i think sm likes a controlled environment, where netizens cant research ahead and dig shit up about their supposed trainees, stuff like that. maybe they want their products viewed as fresh at debut. i rmb reading about some sm fans sneaking pics of exo predebut and the boys saw it and demanded they delete the pics. craycray.

    ReplyDelete
  68. it's not working lol

    ReplyDelete
  69. We're not even sure when she started training in SM.
    She probably entered SM when f(x) was already established.

    ReplyDelete
  70. "[+10, -0] She looks SO average but the amount of media play for her is amazing ㅋ" what do looks have to do with the potential talent she may or may not have?

    ReplyDelete
  71. there are lol. maybe you have to search a little more. there are posts/pictures/threads about them around forums.

    ReplyDelete
  72. All the more hope for SNSD Shinhwa-ing out of there next year. Probably not. But still.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Kyuhyun did not even say he liked her though.......

    ReplyDelete
  74. She looks very "ordinary" though~
    Anyway, if the new girl group is going to debut soon, SM better not shift all their resources to the two rookie groups...

    ReplyDelete
  75. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  76. where would that leave shinee and fx.... :( don't even wanna think abt it

    ReplyDelete
  77. even before TVXQ debut too. Changmin got his stage name "Choikang Changmin" from his fancafe's name. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  78. Yep, all the boys had fancafes.

    ReplyDelete
  79. and i was wondering what Kyuhyun has to do with all this. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  80. There is a lot of info about some male chinese trainees. I saw them on tumblr, because they trained alongside exo so the exo fans went crazy after them.... They found a lot of information.

    ReplyDelete
  81. that's why i gave her a big fat standing applause for that

    ReplyDelete
  82. I don't like how the headlines on this in reference to Kyuhyun. Seulgi is "worthy of Kyuhyun to fall for"? He barely expressed any sincere feeling for her, he was just giggling because he got cornered.

    ReplyDelete
  83. fangirls have mad skills, plus they probably put the three in order and people realized and voted them up like that.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I doubt they'd leave, and sm would probably never let them go.

    I'd worry more for fx tbh. they're already kind of middling (compared to other sm groups) so if this new girlgroup is a success..

    ReplyDelete
  85. Is she going to be in SM's new girl group? I think this girl is pretty. And I hope people don't talk about her too much because I will lose interest in her and the new group if so.

    ReplyDelete
  86. when they mentioned her?

    ReplyDelete
  87. More like it's happening soon to secure their next big thing! LOL
    But still senior groups r still fine so SM juz wants to debut even though TVXQ, SNSD, SJ, SHinee, f(x) are still doing well. They r alrdy A list groups regardless of what they release esp TVXQ, SJ and SNSD

    ReplyDelete
  88. Yep. If this new girl group gets anywhere near the pre-debut exposure Exo got, that's already more investment SM ever put into f(x).

    ReplyDelete
  89. That's the sad part. Shinee and f(x) are the "middle child" of sm, who are given the least attention. While Suju and SNSD's popularity may slow down, they still have a large fan base in Korea and overseas that will support their status. TVXQ, Suju, SNSD are the veterans of the industry and will always be respected in the years to come.

    3. [+703, -26] about her

    Those three comments r juz amazing!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  91. really? there's even a daum cafe dedicated to sm trainees lol I'm sure the info is there. it's just that people don't translate it.

    ReplyDelete
  92. lol netz hating on the girl before she even debuted...
    i think she looks really cute and i've heard that she is quite talented! looking forward to her and SM's new girl group :D

    ReplyDelete
  93. she looks like amber????????????
    omg


    was this nobody really worth all the hype though

    ReplyDelete
  94. I'm better off having a life, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  95. LOL When was she on ABC???????


    And It's obvious that Kyuhyun would mention her. She's more than likely gonna be in the girl group version of EXO and SM is already putting their artists out there to promote them before the girl group debuts.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Just look at her nose... I don't think she's from SM.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Hahahahahahahaha!'
    Best replys!
    Can't stop laughing :D:D

    ReplyDelete
  98. they probably will be like a female exo. sm has a pattern of debuting male and female counterparts.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Yes I'm waiting SM's new girl group which will probably come out next year or the year after since we all know that SM works that way
    Suju -> SNDS
    SHINee -> F(X)
    EXO->???
    So let's wait for many girls in one group.

    ReplyDelete
  100. The most recent Radio Star episode with Sulli and Krystal.

    ReplyDelete
  101. ....What the fuck her nose has to do with anything????

    ReplyDelete
  102. lol the top 3 best replies. I'm rolling.

    Instead of SM Media Playing it would have been smarter to leave every one on their toes guessing who exactly this Seulgi is. Would have garnered more suspense and appeal rather than shoving her in peoples faces all of a sudden with shitty gimmick-y titles. That's how you get replies like the first 3.

    ReplyDelete
  103. poor girl, she has these basic people bashing her for media play she didn't have a choice in. i hope you do great bb girl, prove 'em you're worthy of this commotion!

    ReplyDelete
  104. If and when she debuts she'll have a different nose and a shaved jaw just to meet the SM standard of beauty.
    Other than that I believe she must be vocally talented in order to get in SM looking so ordinary.She's cute now though.SM shouldn't go all out bcz Kyuhyun mentioned her lol.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Lol Kyuhyun is propably eye-rolling (most likely with Changmin) realllly hard at this media play by SM.. "worthy of Kyuhyun to fall for her" -secondhand embarassment-

    ReplyDelete
  106. SM is more strict, I guess. There's always a few popular, long-time trainees though, but info on them is usually so old. Other trainees are super ninja though. Nobody knew who Onew, Key, and Minho were when they debuted. Same with Luna and Amber. DO's classmates didn't even know he was a trainee. He just chose not to tell them.

    ReplyDelete
  107. LOL I actually think SM's managing their groups just fine, especially for a company with such a large roster. JYP and YG's rosters are smaller and yet they're more of a mess than SM is.

    ReplyDelete
  108. i still don't know who she is after that lol

    ReplyDelete
  109. 1. [+769, -34] No one

    6. [+10, -0] She looks SO average but the amount of media play for her is amazing ㅋ

    ReplyDelete
  110. Lol I think she looks really cute though?? I hope SM doesn't mess her face up.

    ReplyDelete
  111. ffs Kyuhyun never said he fell for her why are they making out that he did

    ReplyDelete
  112. Lmao you guys are just as awesome!
    I offer you guys the highest of high fives :D

    ReplyDelete
  113. Was she playing Starcraft when Kyuhyun fell in love with her?

    ReplyDelete
  114. A lot of high school seniors get plastic surgery as a graduation present, it's very common.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Lol well for the meantime here's to hoping that they won't release 100 teasers before they actually debut

    ReplyDelete
  116. she looks like Lee Yeon Hee right ?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Isn't Kim Gura in SM & CC?

    ReplyDelete
  118. Just want to correct you, no one in SHINee have fancafes before debut tho.. not that I know of

    ReplyDelete
  119. She looks like Sandara Park with no eyelids !! pretty tbh

    ReplyDelete
  120. do you know what this is from?

    ReplyDelete
  121. I thought SM trainees are more known, before EXO debut they already have fans and people dug up their pics. I seen pics of 2 chinese guys rumored to be SM trainees too.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Yep she should be grateful.. Thanks to the media play, there's no way SM wouldn't debut her eventually. She won't be eliminated now haha.

    ReplyDelete
  123. the second pic,she reminds me to xiumin...

    ReplyDelete
  124. for me she looks like sandara park expc the 2nd pic O_O

  127. I don't think she asked to be promoted/mediaplay either so...

    ReplyDelete
  128. don't worry slowly it will change. little by little, like it comes naturally. like any other sm artist.lol

    ReplyDelete
  129. I bet JYP manipulated the votes for the first three comments :P

    ReplyDelete
  130. Que f(x) (comeback got overshadowed by Exo's comeback) and then CSJH (arguably the best vocal idol girl group) has yet to be released from solitary confinement...

  134. shameless promotion or a trainee..sm at its best

    ReplyDelete
  135. If SM makes them a female counterpart like the other groups, will she be Chanyeol's partner since he was said to be a fan of Dara??
    jk

    ReplyDelete
  136. "solitary confinement"........gold!

    ReplyDelete
  137. on Radio Star, they asked him stuff about girls to Kyuhyun, he said it was a burden liking famous people, so they asked how about trainees? then fx mentioned a trainee named Seulgi then kept teasing him..it was fishy, sounds like they're already promoting them I guess..

    ReplyDelete
  138. I LOVE THE TOP COMMENTS.

    ReplyDelete
  139. -.-
    Taemin and Jonghyun had fancafes before debut.
    Taem's fancafe was smltm(Soulmate). It was made after just months he was accepted in SM as a trainee.
    Jong's fancafe was jonghyun90.

    ReplyDelete
  140. her face is similar with shin sekyung.. maybe.. just saying tho

    ReplyDelete
  141. the movie incidious

    ReplyDelete
  142. HAHAHA, the top comments, HILARIOUS!

    ReplyDelete
  143. That segment annoyed me because Gura shoved him into a corner and when Sulli mentioned Seulgi's name (a bad idea tbh, she probably already has antis), it wasn't like he could say he didn't like her. Ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Sandara park too.

    ReplyDelete
  145. I feel like SM should wait for their current groups to gain some footing before debuting a new one. They spent sooo money on EXO but are really stingy with f(x) :/

    ReplyDelete
  146. it was for all three of them hahaha
    first one for rain, the second one for seven + sangchu lol

    ReplyDelete
  147. last pic she really look likes sungha jung = =

    ReplyDelete
  148. 'Worthy of Kyuhyun to fall for' means.....?

    ReplyDelete
  149. didn't even recognize it haha

    ReplyDelete
  150. Obviously an SM promotion tactic.. O_O

    ReplyDelete
  151. LOL XDDD the top 3 comments

    ReplyDelete
  152. Really? I stan them for so long already yet I didnt know about this.. thx for the info then! :)

    ReplyDelete
  153. Out of SM's current female roster, she ranks pretty low in terms of looks. But then again make up does wonders.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  160. Kyu never mentioned her though, he didn't even say he liked her.. Krystal n Sulli said her name and the MC kind of forced him to send her a video message like they usually do in k shows

    ReplyDelete
  161. Thanks. To kyuhyun

    ReplyDelete
  162. IKR? he wasn't even the one to mention her and the MC kind of forced him to send her a video message lol kind of reminds me of how they forced the kyu-hyuna love line on happy together

    ReplyDelete
  163. thanks to sulli lol she mentioned her

    ReplyDelete
  164. lol NB's the reason I know she exists

    ReplyDelete
  165. It means we'll be seeing her soon, probably next year lol

    ReplyDelete
  166. the power of "SM" name. just SM. not her.

  169. fame and makeup can do wonders to a person appearances... I rmb years back knetz used to complain about taeyeon common's looks -_-

    ReplyDelete
  170. Speaking of Kyu, can I have a positive article on his graduation with 90% attendance.....

    ReplyDelete
  171. omg that scra me -___-

    ReplyDelete
  172. imo just a lucky few are street cast, SM holds (or used to hold) weekly auditions, where anyone could just walk in and try out + bigger audition events every now and then in Korea and elsewhere (the ones they advertise ~once a year)

    ReplyDelete
  173. No.


    Privacy is what SME is known for.


    Currently, (as what my friend told me) there are 10-20 trainees at SME.
    NEW Trainees from SME are on the chopping block for three months. After that time, they will select trainees who are fit, and will continue on, while the rest will be asked to either join another company or will be asked to audition again.
