Sports Donga via Naver

1. [+1,143, -100] She's been looking lonelier after getting married

2. [+828, -58] Why does she only upload selcas on Instagram instead of picking up a new work

3. [+739, -75] She's still ridiculously pretty. I want to see her with Lee Byung Hun too.

4. [+731, -88] Why does she always look so lonely? I'm worried that her marriage life isn't that fun.

5. [+224, -24] Her and Kim Tae Hee are both examples of actresses living off of CFs because they're beautiful but don't have the acting talent for real work

6. [+136, -29] I wonder if she's regretting her marriage yet. ㅎ I still remember the airport photos after their honeymoon of Lee Byung Hun walking ahead leaving Lee Min Jung behind and she looked like she was trying to catch up ㅋㅋㅋ Fool, why marry a man like that? You won't have happiness the longer this lasts.

    Ehh.. anyone have pics? Don't wanna judge them off of a netizen comment.

  3. i don't see any loneliness in this picture tbh

    ReplyDelete
  4. 'Marriage Counselling'. Major ROFLMAO there. Nice title :D
    And speaking of Lee Minjung, I have to agree. She's got a killer face, but not-so-killer acting skills.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Can you smell the haters . I mean she looks pretty

    ReplyDelete
  6. Omg they can see so many things in just one selca. I onlye see cartier behind her, she's been spending money, that of course means she's lonely.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Wait a minute, Lee min Jung isn't nearly as bad as Kim tae hee. She was probably my favorite part of bof. She should probably stick to spunky roles and keep her hair short lol

    ReplyDelete
  8. If lonely people look like her then I must be hella pretty gorgeous *_*

    ReplyDelete
  9. Two things
    1) She's fucking beautiful
    2) These netizens are a bunch of rabid haters. I remember when they said WG Sunye was unhappy because her husband had a stern look on his face.

    ReplyDelete
  10. "She looks lonely" is code for "we want pictures of your husband"

    ReplyDelete
  11. Lol.. ..better u all stream smtown concert

    ReplyDelete
  12. Or when they got mad cause he wasn't holding her hand.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Let's get married everyone (T∇T)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow they know her whole life stor through one selca thats some great skills

    ReplyDelete
  15. but i read not too long ago that she signed for another movie or drama...am i wrong ?

    ReplyDelete
  16. A picture paints a thousand words... and unnecessary comments from bystander of course

    ReplyDelete
  17. lol this reminds me of the time people were saying Kanye and Kim were having marriage problems because they didn't arrive at the airport together after their honeymoon trip in Italy.

  21. what a rude dick =o=

    ReplyDelete
  22. k-idols (or koreans in general) use selca wayyy before the term selfie got popular in the recent years (altho the word selfie might existed first). so ive known selca for years before ppl around me started to use selfie.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Legitimately nice people, making me smile :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. NB doesn't always translate the articles with the most upvoted comments

  30. the ultimate culture shock for me is when i saw patents criticize their children publicly on tv shows. i just don't understand. if indeed they aren't that good looking, why can't they avoid talking about their children's looks?

    ReplyDelete
  31. 5. [+224, -24] Her and Kim Tae Hee are both examples of actresses living off of CFs because they're beautiful but don't have the acting talent for real work



    How in the world is she living off of CF's??????????? She just had a drama THIS YEAR. It hasn't even been half a year since that drama ended and since 2005, she's had a drama for EACH consecutive year. She also had a movie two years ago and in movie time that is verrry recent for a veteran actress like her. I'm sorry but if you're going to insult her go use something else.

    7. [+71, -10] I remember in earlier articles, the comments were a mess
    about her husband for not holding her hand and accusing him of looking
    like a mobster because he was so expressionless with dyed blonde hair...
    Now they come out at a public event holding hands with his hair back to
    black ㅋ I think their relationship is on the rocks but they're reading
    everything the public is saying ㅋ

    ReplyDelete
  38. So ... There are also LOTS of countries that did plastic surgeries..

    ReplyDelete
  39. You know what shocked me the most? The beauty ranking that idol groups are subjected to in many talk shows. Honestly, the first time I heard this question on a show, I thought it was one of the rudest questions ever. How can people blatantly ask that question as if it were nothing? I get that people may want to know how you feel about your group mates' appearance or who you think is the most attractive, but to ask you to rank all of them in order....well damn! Do people normally go around ranking their friends/family in their mind based on their looks? NO!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. The title tho~ lmao~~~~ nb sense of humour just so cute and lee minjung just flawless as ever~♡

    ReplyDelete
  41. i'm italian and I honestly find it strange... i mean, I've never once met someone who got work done... and nobody even think about it... for me it doesn't make sense at all! well, it make sense if we only count celebrities or those who aims to be famous.. stars use plastic surgery for breast or for (i don't know how to say it ^^) hide aging.. but normal people can't even ever afford the cost of the surgery, not to mention that they will be criticize by everyone! (sorry for my english and any possible mistake =P)

    ReplyDelete
  42. It always creeps me out that whenever someone talks about their ideal types, they only talk about appearances, and nothing about personality. It's like it doesn't matter if you're an evil bitch, as long as you're pretty -_-

    ReplyDelete
  43. Well, is that worse than when I show my friends KPop videos and all they ever say is, "Gay"?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Lee Byung Hun is a disgusting man.

    ReplyDelete
  45. It's ridiculous, like they literally did not air a single stage from the 5 they preformed while other artists got 3 aired

    ReplyDelete
  46. people abroad are obsessed with muscles, while generally asians arent tend to work out, i think its cultural difference, male with make up grossed them out too @@

    ReplyDelete
  47. can i have someone like him please? please please please.....

    ReplyDelete
  48. I think "selca" is hella awkward. Self camera? What's that? A picture or a camera?

    ReplyDelete
  49. TELL ME HER NAME! I'm gonna die soon just by looking at her face.

    ReplyDelete
  50. hey what is their instagram acc? xD

    ReplyDelete
  51. But my friends and I are from Asia.

  52. His fan meeting in Indonesia started late because Seunggi requested they waited until adzan isya ended so the noise from his FM wouldn't disturb people who're praying, and his Moslem fans could go to the nearest mosque to pray & they wouldn't miss any part of his FM. Full respect to him!

    ReplyDelete
  53. idk using camera by yourself?


    ive always disliked using -ie suffix like selfie, boyfie, lappy etc etc.

    ReplyDelete
  54. i just.... why is indonesia in the list?i mean here if u get a ps you will get bashed by ppl....

    ReplyDelete
  55. In real life
    acquaintances would say comments like
    " wow you have big dark circles "
    " You gotten thicker since the last time I saw you "

    ReplyDelete
  56. Having PS is not the problem. Overdoing the PS is the real problem.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Sunye gets so much hate it's ridic.

    ReplyDelete
  58. so thats the full story? were you there? wow lee seunggi is indeed a thoughtful & respectful man. theres no way you can hate him.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yeah, my korean teacher also said that. The only people who says Indonesia as Indo are mostly Indonesians themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  60. whats with the sad emoticon haha

    ReplyDelete
  61. Cultural differences.

    In Korea it's not offensive to tell someone that they look fat.
    It's something they kinda say casually to each other but they think of it as a way to help you.

    watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIaLQ7WmA0A

    ReplyDelete
  62. The differences of the number of (+) and (-) between those 2 articles... hhnggh

    ReplyDelete
  63. [+1,462, -99] Want to know why there's so much plastic surgery? Because not only our country but any country in the world judges everything based on looks and criticizes them the hardest. Instead of loving someone for how they look as they are, people ask questions like what's up with your nose? Your eyes? Your face? Why is your body like that? They care too much about what doesn't concern them. Everyone has a different look, a different body.. why can't we just accept that every individual is different? Why criticize it? I get so embarrassed of Koreans every time they do that.

    Just like what this video said:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIaLQ7WmA0A

  64. Do you mean in counselour something show on kbs?
    Where the mom never post his second daughter pics and just post his first daughter pics because she think her daughter is not as pretty as her older sister?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Well, with the middle-class growth in metropolitan, i think people who get surgery done in my country may increase, but Indo in Korean isn't Indonesia, it's India. For quick cross check, google translate, for eligible cross check, your Korean dictionary.

  66. during fanmeet in malaysia, a muslim with hijab won a game of hug.... b4 he hug he asked the girl may i.. bcuz ur muslim. the girl said yes ofc lol but it show how he respect the girl religion. he really a nice person

  67. TLC!!!!!........really miss that song ( suddenly I realize how old I am.....T__T)

  68. How about stopping people form being bullies? Bullies will find something new to pick on you no matter how much plastic surgery you get that's a poor example to use.

  70. Do people around you really think any good looking/decent looking asians got plastic surgery???????????


    I don't think I'm that attractive but ppl at times say i'm cute
    so does that mean that in public, there's actually some people that thought I gotten plastic surgery? My god!

  72. are those ppl stupid?
    Don't they know 90% of southeast asians have natural double eyelid
    and Some eastern asian have natural double eyelid too.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ikr indonesia on the list freaked me out.. plastic surgery is kind of taboo here

    ReplyDelete
  74. who is she???

    ReplyDelete
  75. Then I'm weird as well

    ReplyDelete
  76. mostly people defining masculine/man in the same way like muscular, dark colored skin etc etc.
    meanwhile in Korea, they have soft masculine type in masculine. which man have feminine in physical appearance and character.

    ReplyDelete
  77. The procedures you mentioned would not be considered plastic surgery since they were most likely necessary and doctor recommended.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I knew selca way before I knew selfie and Koreans did it before the term selfie.
    So it's weird when I first knew about Selfie.


    PS: selca stand for Self Camera.

    ReplyDelete
  79. If I ever end up with a kid of my own somehow someday, I'm making it a point to point out something pretty about anyone/anything we encounter.

    If you teach love, more often than not, you'll grow love.

    ReplyDelete
  80. When i went to korean it's not really hard to find a place for PS it's like almost everywhere in the street so no doubt if south korea takes number one in plastic surgery (per population)

    ReplyDelete
  81. lol they are really reaching..Reminds me of this

    ReplyDelete
  82. She is really damn pretty in this pic, wow

    ReplyDelete
  83. It's funny because James never dyed his hair blonde, it was just the sun's effect xD
    Knetz can create a whole makjjang drama with selfies alone.

    ReplyDelete
  84. lol.. people usually say something like like that.. people usualy try to discover his evilness.. it's not because he looks fake or fishy.. but because he looks so real and sincere that make you feel he's too good to be true..
    some people will try.. until they give up..

    ReplyDelete
  85. She is much better than Kim Tae Hee to me

    ReplyDelete
  86. Oh, God, then all of my family members have done plastic surgery.
    Too bad there isn't any surgery that can fix ignorance.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Words cant describe how good this guy is

  91. Yeah... those were the days... and I really love that song.


    (Yeah, I feel old just reminiscing that line... T~T)

    ReplyDelete
  92. Yes, I was there. The FM was supposed to start after the fansigning, but it's delayed. The organizer relayed Seunggi's request (as above). I heard that he asked fans who wore headscarf if it's okay to shake their hands / hug them. He's very thoughful & respect his fans' religion.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I think no.8 is India, not Indonesia. 인도 is India and 인도네시아 is Indonesia.

    ReplyDelete
  94. If k-netizen said that lee minjung who's already have a husband looking lonelier because of selca then how about me..................

    ReplyDelete
  95. I prefer "selca" too.

    ReplyDelete
  96. No matter what the achievement Exo could make, people would never stop spitting their saliva on the guys. No one take them seriously. I do agree that some of their fans are abit too much but like in every fandoms, there are always some who are always considered as crazy. You generalize their fandom, and I find it pretty childish. Actually, what did they do differently to be hated this much? They are acting exactly other idols. If you judge them based on their fans, isn't that stupid ?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Yeah, me too. I knew "selca" first, and when "selfie" came out, I was like, "Selfie? What's that?"

    ReplyDelete
  98. But she did a lead role in a drama this year... And a lead role in a drama last year...


    How is that not working??

    ReplyDelete
  99. im new to the kpop world. maybe thats why..haha. when i heard selca i thought it was like instagram or something similar to it

    ReplyDelete
  100. I really miss Lee Min jung in dramas, I lived off her and Yoon Eunhye tbh, hopefully they'll both make a comeback soon <3

    ReplyDelete
  101. yay same! im glad we have the same thought :D

    everyone are so against that procedure in this country

    ReplyDelete
  104. I loved Lee Min Jung in her drama with Jang Kyung Ho, "Smile, you". It's my all time Favorite family drama!

    ReplyDelete
  105. For me it was more like, lonely or not she can afford a Cartier (maybe even more).

    That's it.

    ReplyDelete
  106. i rly hope they made it until a very long time


    a nice girl deserves a nice guy

  107. Lee Seung Gi and Lee Dong Wook are some of the kindest people in the industry. God bless them.

  108. I'm a hardcore Yoona-Lee Seung Gi shipper but when I see him doing such things I can't stop envying Yoona :(

    ReplyDelete
  109. Indonesia? I don't think so..

    ReplyDelete
  110. lol. Don't tell her what to do knetz. Her chemistry with Joo Sang-wook in Cunning Single Lady was really cute. I hope they get to work again someday.

  113. I have to say, when I was living in Korea, my ex used to get really annoyed if I wouldn't let him carry my handbag. He said it made him look like a bad boyfriend.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Same here. I knew the word selca way before selfie so I prefer using selca whenever i post a picture of mine. #selca

    ReplyDelete
  115. Hi NB! I think no. 8 refers to India not Indonesia.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Yeah i kinda confused too.. i have live in indonesia for 2 years and i never meet an indonesian people who had getting a plastic surgery . I think 인도 means india..

    ReplyDelete
  117. because azan happen in certain time. Not sure how exactly that time (@Niaz maybe can tell). i.e : Let say azan took at 7pm and the FM supposed to start at 6.30 pm. If he start the FM at 6.30 than azan will happened when FM already going on. So, because the reason that mentioned above, he waiting. Plus, time to pray for shalat magrib before isya is short. I think it really helpfull when he wait till azan isya ended. Really thoughtfull :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. Lee Seung Gi why you're sooo nice ♥ i like his personality. Andd yoona is so luckyyyy..

    ReplyDelete
  119. I've used selca since I was in Korea, so since about 2007. It was already a pretty commonly used word in Korea then. Selfie is much more recent, at least here in the UK. People used to think I was weird for doing it and now everyone does it o.O

    ReplyDelete
  120. Internet high five, buddy!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Ahahahahha... and here is another instance wherein I forgot that I replied to this NB post... What happened to me???


    Anyway, virtual high-five with you, my friend! ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  122. ah, i saw him. it was by chance. i was talking with my friends when a mob of screaming girls came running towards a booth. we found out it was lee seunggi, and i nearly died because i wanted to see him so bad, but i didn't have a ticket to kcon. he's really handsome, and a wonderful person. here's a pic i took:

    ReplyDelete
  123. Kim Tae Hee role in Jang Ok Jung is daebak. Actress which can play many role is daebak lol.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Honestly plastic surgery in Korea is one of the things that makes people (adults and teenagers) in my country not interested in Korea. If I just begin to talk about an artist I like or a drama, adults, or my friends, are just going to search ps on their faces... Korea should learn to their people to love themselves as they are born. Of course if the people feel very very bad about his nose or her boobs then I understand ps but not for turning their whole faces into monsters. In fact I think that ps is one reason why western people are always saying that asians look all the same.

  125. XXX_BAPxSECRETxUNTOUCHAugust 15, 2014 at 8:35 AM

    Ulzzangs are not creepy or plastic. There good looking teens that are rare. Real Ulzzangs dont do ps. They are just born like that unlike gangman girls.

    ReplyDelete
  126. He's so perfect. I've been a fan for many years and Seung Gi has really never done anything to change that. He's so sincere and hardworking and never gives anyone any reason to hate on him. His image is just so clean. What an umchinah <3

    ReplyDelete
  127. Ikr? I doubt any English native speakers who are not familiar use the word selca more than selfie. It just doesn't sound right. It sounds like a konglish word like seo-dae (Seoul Daehakgyo) or other slangs that Koreans use.

    ReplyDelete
  134. heh, if you're asian, you grow up being criticized for your looks and weight by your closest family members. And as someone who struggled with her weight all the way up to college, I can tell you that it was an unpleasant experience, to say the least. I remember when I went to visit Korea when I was 12/13, the comments from my family members about my weight were so bad that I was driven to tears, and neither of my parents said anything to stop it. It was only when I started crying that they backed off...and then urged me to eat some more, lol. What a bunch of assholes, I hope I never see them again.

    ReplyDelete
  135. They probably keep it secret.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Beauty ranking is silly thing when I heard it for the first time. But now I'm ignore it once I get to know kpop and don't take it serious. Just like some random fun thing

    ReplyDelete
  139. err...............you sure? maybe in your country tho. Over here more people are into dramas than kpop so Lee Seungi is the popular one here. I feel like when people say all over the world, they usually leave out Africa. If only you new how many fans Korean actors and actresses have here like say Lee Minho, Kim Hyun Joong and Yonghwa???

    ReplyDelete
  140. Plastic surgery isn't a bad thing when it's done to help. I've seen lots of pics of koreans who got plastic surgery because they look deformed etc. I guess there are quite a lot of koreans with these issues. It's helpful to them.

    BUT the problem with Korea is that they get plastic surgery even when it's not necessary at all. Just look at celebrities. Some of them look totally fine, even very pretty, yet they get plastic surgery to look like everyone else, which ends up making them less good looking than they used to be, and less unique. I don't even know how many times I saw celebrities doing that and I don't get it. In the end, it makes it hard to believe any celebrity is actually natural. and it gets worse every year...

    Some years ago, if you look at actresses or idols, they had individualities, they looked natural (not saying they were all natural, but they looked natural). Now see the new idols or even actresses, they all have very similar faces. I won't give names but you'd know, the rookies debuting, they look so much alike, it's too much. Obviously people will be like "but you can still tell them apart after a while" but really? It was better when the celebrities looked a minimum natural. This "plastic surgery" look is getting old. I miss seeing unique faces and have more diversity. but I have a feeling things won't get better... :/

  145. I feel sorry for you. Sometimes the meanest person was your closest family. But as long as your parents support you no matter what, don't ever care about what people say. You own your life. Take criticism as an advice for your improved :)

  146. in theory, yes. In reality? No. Britney Spears sounded awful live and yet she was an American icon for her sexiness and nice personality (she had a nice girl image before her third album or so). Hyuna's the same.

  147. It's normal to judge people for their looks, all societies are conditioned to do so. It's oversharing unhelpful, negative thoughts that's the problem.

    Plastic surgery should always be for yourself. The reason why some people may dislike and judge ps as a general rule is that most people are doing it at least partially for other people. And that's a stupid reason to surgically alter yourself. And then some (many in my experience) of those psed people turn around and critise other people. Because their own self esteem is so low they need to put people down. It's such a harmful cycle.

  151. I can't believe it too when I first got into kpop, almost all of people talk about looks. Beauty is number one.They seriously judge people by their appearance. But like you, I ignore it so many times. I don't want to be brainwashed about Korean thing lol

    ReplyDelete
  152. you can't judge by one pic either, you never know what's really happening

  153. yeah I'm a fan of hers and they're not wrong. But Hyuna's greatest strength was always her stage presence and dance skills, she can command a stage like very few other kpop artists.


    Others may have better voices but Hyuna's overpowering stage presence is no joke, hell she even used to overshadow Hyunseung when they first started Troublemaker (he got better with Now though).

  155. this is like when someone took a pic of keanu reeves eating a cheeseburger on a park bench and uploaded it onto twitter and people thought he was depressed and cheered him up and keanu's like "...I was just eating a cheeseburger..."

  156. she's much better than Kim Tae Hee and some other CF-centric stars, no lie.


    She's not Sohn Yejin levels of talented but I thought she was good in Cunning Single Lady, she's improved from her earlier work a lot. It ended only what, three months ago?

  159. ALL THE APPLAUSE FOR NETIZEN 2


    But seriously, what is with the enforcing of such a rigid and narrow standard of beauty among Koreans? Is it because the population isn't that ethnically/racially diverse?


    I used to think Europe would be far more promoting plastic surgery but in France if you look, girls like Charlotte Gainsbourg are celebrated as style icons and celebrities and people think things like a bigger nose or slightly imperfect teeth gives character to a person's face and adds to the beauty, not making them ugly.

  160. And the result wasn't that good .. kkk~

  161. 8. indonesia...? really?

    ReplyDelete
  162. Well, if they were just normal girls I'd think differently perhaps, but given their careers and the fact that dating is harder on women in the business it's best not to mention them, even if you are being nice or sweet about it. They didn't work hard all their lives to only be known as someone's GF.

  163. This is why Seunggi is one of my faves if not my favorite after Jongsuk.
    He is so freaking adorable and kind. I don't think anyone can match up to him.

  164. she's a really hardworking person I believe, there's noway she didn't practice singing, perhaps she's really not able to?

    ReplyDelete
  165. I think her acting has improved a lot in cunning single lady and for me she's much better than Kim Tae Hee..

    ReplyDelete
  166. that is true, even I've seen that in my own family. But I'd rather they say it openly than talk behind my back.....and maybe it helps that in my country, the solution to a not-small nose or round face is not "go get plastic surgery!" but learning to accept your looks and getting the confidence to be telling haters to shove it.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I guess so, her rapping was always horrid but I just mean that it was... like better before but still not good.
    In their Japanese releases her voice is better as well. I don't get why she sounds even worse than usual in some songs.

  170. In Korea they judge your outer looks. In the US they judge your religion, your race, your political views etc.

    Koreans don't just criticize looks, they criticize EVERYTHING. There's just very little PHYSICAL and also EMOTIONAL personal space. Everyone is in your business, Koreans have this weird notion that living is about living communally, not about being little Miss Princess is Perfect In My Own World. It's this idea that your life is enriched by being with others. In a lot of ways there's still an idea that living life by yourself all lonely and miserable is like living HALF a LIFE. In the US it's basically normal for like 1/4 of the population.

    So strangers will tell you you are good looking, that you're tall, that you have blonde hair. It's not just black folks who tell white ppl they can't dance or sing. Koreans will tell you you can't sing or dance or that you are artistic or w/e. Koreans are definitely judgmental and it's a culture shock.

    The thing is, in Korea they realize outer appearance is just your outer appearance so they don't really worry about what they say to you about it. In the West you have all these queer ideas about how you look being your identity and things (comes from Judeo Christian mythology about your body being Yaweh's temple etc) so people think you'll have a heart attack if someone tells you you are fat or short or w/e

    The entire premise of this article is depressing. It goes to show how tribal and illogical people are. More plastic surgery isn't a "problem" it isn't about "everyone is supposed to be beautiful." What you're talking about is women doing things to their bodies that they want that makes them feel better. In every other context that is a win, except this old Hebrew taboo on physical appearance. I mean it's the exact same logic as judging/feeling sorry for people based on tattoos.

  171. i actually can understand korean and boy in luv is kinda funny, no? "how did dad confess his love to mom" in a very manly voice is a little funny.. lol. but i'll try listening to those songs you mention, thanks for the suggestions

  186. I still struggle o tell apart fake noses/aegyosal/double eyelids and stuff like that but I never really notices them in people til I got into Kpop! Like, I dont understandw hy u would pay sooo much money to look like someone's clone.. The whole idea that you pretty mich hae to get ps to get a job is really sad

    ReplyDelete
  187. Kpop fans are a niche group everywhere around the world, I thought everyone knew that but thanks for clarifying for those who are not similar with Kpop

    ReplyDelete
  188. Even now I can't differentiate between some Kpop idols. The Idols look just like made from the same plastic doll factory.

    I understand the reason for surgery that they want to be as beautiful standard as perfect stereotype. Anyway, If you've done your face and become pretty/handsome, it doesn't matter for anything.
