  10. Paul McCartney probably has done Park Bom's body weight x 10 in drugs over his lifetime... but he's a male, and not from Korea, so it's okay.

  11. Paul Hyung


    Gaga Unnie

    is it funny? I think it's cool that koreans use honorific to other people regardless of their race and nationality.

  17. PAUL, your ex-wife Heather must be crazy to recently call you "irrelevant"

    he is from the beatles. my father's generation but even i listen to his music

    ReplyDelete
  19. It's cute tbh. Just like how a commenter mentioned his natural "aegyo". XD

    ReplyDelete
  20. You must have been born in the 2000s.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Someone who is naturally not exposed to many genres of music, therefore artists in an unknown genre of music would be expected as an unknown person- that also exists with the countless other humans of unacknowledged existence.

  22. and i thought chanyeol is the only attention seeker in exo -__- sm has lot of attention seeker and hoes from tiffany to teayeon aka slay fox to tao what else

    ReplyDelete
  23. I can't believe Paul McCartney has aegyo.. I mean.. The kind of aegyo that I know is BBUING BBBBBUUUIINNGGGG

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wasn't that irony?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've seen him perform twice now but my goal is to watch him with my father who is a big fan. q.q

  26. Searching For FreedomMay 3, 2015 at 4:37 AM

    yeah, i dont find it awkward because in my language we have honorific too, like -san, -kun, -senpai, etc. So i cant really see the lol using it. But we dont call -older brother/sister to people that is not blood related.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Someone who has a relative grasp of English and is on English speaking websites should know who Paul McCartney is tbh.

    ReplyDelete
  28. hmm 1996 at end of the year so u can say mm near 1997 and yuck not 2000

    ReplyDelete
  29. I watched his old video concert and almost moved to tears ;u; The Beatles will always be my favorite legend and I wish I could go to his concert I'm so jealous!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. also the aegyo... :D


    the thought of such a legenary musician "doing aegyo" is surreal in a whole new level lol

    ReplyDelete
  31. i m not trying to disrespect him or u or anyone i just don't know first time hear about him

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ah fair enough. I guess it's just endearing to people who don't have honorific systems in place.

    ReplyDelete
  33. english is not my first language and even so theirs alot native english speaker who don't know so u need to chill out sis

    ReplyDelete
  34. Searching For FreedomMay 3, 2015 at 4:41 AM

    i do hope international people find it endearing, not laughable.

    ReplyDelete
  35. He is also a foreigner so same rules do not apply

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yea he's not Korean and the English take a relaxed stance on drugs. We don't care about foreign stars on drugs and the American singers still sell out their concerts at Wembley and O2 so why Koreans?

    ReplyDelete
  37. M8 your tone is just a little off.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Not really. He's not a World Leader/ a mass party representative. Icons of music < Icons of World's Working Societies.

  40. Paul is so fucking awesome

    ReplyDelete
  41. The Beatles are pretty good. Maybe they'd do a reunion for their fans.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yeah, I think you're right on that, because since there aren't any in English these seem so cute to us haha

    ReplyDelete
  43. I don't think anyone I know makes fun of honourific titles.

    ReplyDelete
  44. i get that there are bound to be people who don't know him, with the generational gap and all, but i find it difficult to understand how someone who had such an impact in my life, my friends, my generation can be virtually unknown to others, especially someone as big and legendary as paul mccartney


    to each their own, i guess

    ReplyDelete
  45. He is a fun guy i seen him billy joel and elton in concert all i need is stevie wonder and i am good

  46. If only they could be whole as four again. Sigh. :(

  48. Sadly half are dead

    i've read people laugh and make fun with words like "Madonna sunbaenim, *inserthollywoodcelebrity*-sunbaenim" or Hyung/Unnie. I've seen in it website like AKP & Netizenbuzz/Twitter. I just think it's not right.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Paul has so much aeygo.
    The thought of an old man like him "doing aeygo" is just too much to handle

    ReplyDelete
  53. That's only if you acquired the amount of interest in music's categorized genres or certain artists.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I find it really cute when Koreans call foreign artists oppa/unnie/hyung/noona 😂

  55. I didn't see people making fun of that, instead I thought they thought it was funnily cute.

  61. Your loss, kid. But have a lovely day/evening.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Not incoming hate but it isn't even true, yesterday was Tao'a birthday and he's in China, his party fan event was live streamed on weibo so that for sure is a lie >_> He DID cry at the party so there are pics of him crying but not from some stupid troll bait rumor lol

    ReplyDelete
  63. Sadly for George, thankfully for John

    ReplyDelete
  64. same for u XD

  65. Dude think critically and empathetic ally. I'm an Exo-L. Are you really tellin me with all the stuff surrounding Exo that I was supposed to know that was a joke and not an actual rumor floating around?? It's not like I yelled at them or anything I just told them it wasn't true-_-

    ReplyDelete
  70. we posted a pic of him crying and acting like drama queen .... pretty mush attention seeker

    ReplyDelete
  71. you must have at least heard of the Beatles before

    ReplyDelete
  72. He's going mainstream soon, the great kanye west was generous enough to help him out by letting him feature on his track. Paul owes his career to him, he's going to make it big.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Oh my bad.. I didn't know.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Lmao, people who thought the whole Kanye making Paul McCartney famous was a hoax. We have a real, live example here to prove them wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  75. huh dogu O.o? i think i live under cave lol no i don't maybe i'd i don't the name seems bit familiar idk

    ReplyDelete
  76. Whatever the colour of LSD is

    ReplyDelete
  77. Tbh I was also guilty of not knowing him for a long time, I was born in 1987 and knew there was a very popular and legendary band named Beatles in the past but i wasn't interested enough to listen to their songs or search their history, only Beatles member i knew was John Lennon and that was because i loved his solo works, during that time i was more into hard rock and metal bands so Beatles were not on my menu at all, it's only when i moved to London that i was introduced to Paul McCartney through british newspapers and tv shows, now i know who he is but yeah for a long time i didn't even know he existed. I wouldn't be surprised at all if most current generation teens don't know him at all.

  79. Its not just males, Koreans dont really apply the same standards to foreigners period

    ReplyDelete
  80. dont misunderstood my comment. im not mocking the whole honorific thing. i honestly find it cute and adorable when koreans call foreign celebs with it. idk, maybe it's not a usual thing for me cause in my place we only use honorifics to certain people. for celebrities, we opt to use some titles to address them like Mr. Miss, Mrs. or Sir whether they are sunbaes or hoobaes by age.

    ReplyDelete
  81. n they call pacman as ahjussi hehe, they r cute^^

    I only know him because I'm into older music.

  89. I want to see that Beatles show in Vegas. Have you seen it?

    ReplyDelete
  90. Ahhh, Paul McCartney and John Lennon were legends. Beatles ftw!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I think you might be misunderstanding the context. Laughter and joking can have many different connotations. Even poking fun/joking/laughing about something doesn't necessarily imply any level of disrespect in western society. As SAYAAAYYY put it, people could just find it funnily cute/endearing, even in the instances you're mentioning. Is that a possibility?

    ReplyDelete
  92. You just show your idiotic brain to the world.... Congratulation. Even if you don't know someone who is considered famous for other people, you can at least read the news and googling his name -__-

    I've got a stunned look on my face at those who don't know who McCartney is ...
    anyway, the use of honorifics for foreign celebs is amusing in a sweet way.

    Good to read the knets enjoyed it and it doesn't seem his voice has declined in the way e.g. Brian WIlson's has perhaps? I'd have to go and have a listen.

    Anyway, Tom Jones and Shirley Bassey can still sing :-D

  102. Was born in 2002, first discovered the Beatles because of Here Comes The Sun. Checked them out, new jam Hey Jude.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I get what you mean....but that is purely subjective - there are people who have an immense impact on others which you might not know. I guess we amplify things from our own perspective that it feels difficult to understand that its meaningless to someone else (ps. i know that feeling) Some of my friends who have lived in England all their don't even get it - so I would not be surprised anywhere else.

    Don't worry, you're not really missing. People just feel the need hop on the bandwagon and worship them.

  117. i don't like levels but you are comparing park bom with guy who has sold over 600 million albums (most in the history).

    ReplyDelete
  118. All you have to know is he has sold more albums and songs than any artists in the world and is so ahead that he will never be overtaken in terms of sale.

  119. Yes. At least I hope so.

  120. Congrats you special snowflake.

  121. :/ You sure are rude for someone who's 17... why is it "yuck" if someone is born after 2000? It's not like they chose to be so young...

    ReplyDelete
  122. Eh I think your understanding peoples comments wrongly. Even my japanese teacher ( who is from japan ) laughs a bit when we have to call the other class mans ~~san. No one is making fun of the language it just is cute when its an english name.

  125. The Beatles are the OG boy band who became recognised as true musicians and artists.

    The kind of achievements and respect that they earned for their music worldwide is something we can only dream of for our own biases in Korea (well maybe Big Bang is the first idol group to gain that level of respect in Korea as what the Beatles had in the UK/US back in the 60s)

    ReplyDelete
  126. Oh god...ohhhhh god please tell me you're trolling...

    ReplyDelete
  127. You don't know the beatles...? I thought everyone knew of them just like everyone knows Michael Jackson and Elvis....wow

    ReplyDelete
  128. Beatles music is old but so many contemporary musicians, fashion designers, artists etc like to talk about them as a reference, it's like basic knowledge for anyone who likes Western music artists, kind of like Michael Jackson and Elvis and the Rolling Stones. (I don't listen to their music but I still know the names)

    ReplyDelete
  129. lmao imagine if the Beatles were a Korean boy group, what netizens would say

    actually you don't even have to imagine, just look at comments on Big Bang's alleged drug use.

    ReplyDelete
  130. wow, how'd ya miss him? i guess if you're not from usa/uk, maybe he isn't as talked about much in other countries. well, there's nothing wrong with not knowing, it's just surprising ^^


    um well, idk if you're serious, but for any one who does not know, here is what little info i can offer (i'm not super knowledgeable, but i've picked up a lot due to my father being a huge fan lol) he was a member of rock group, the beatles, which were active in 60s-70s, and then onward as some went solo. of the 4 prominent members, he and ringo starr are the ones still alive iirc, but he's the one whose most prominent now, still touring/releasing material, and most mainstreamly, featured in a song by kanye west and rihanna which is currently popular (in the us, at least)


    him, and the beatles, obviously are mostly known by older people since they were in their prime years ago, but there are a few young people here and there that really like their music and there is still a fanbase to this day. they're considered legends for how they shaped the music industry, especially how bands are managed, broken many records, many artists (not just music artists) list them as their inspiration, etc. when it comes to western music, beatles are one of, if not THE most important/prominent names you will hear thrown around.


    obv idk how accurate this all is, so sorry if i offended any fans with my youngness haha, but wikipedia will help if yall any curious

    ReplyDelete
  131. Lmao can't forget how the best beatle records were made under the influence of pot and acid. Amazing.

  132. 2002... omg... I'm exactly 10 years older than you.. 10 whole years.. ghfjhfjgnjggiikhggjgh You're not even in high school yet, are you? Even my littlest sister is older than you! Damn, it's so crazy to think that there are kids now I'm gonna cross paths with online who are over half my age... You know, there used to be a day when I was the little kid in a sea of miserable adults... how the tables have changed


    lol, it must be so annoying to say your age/yob online and then you get a ton of posts from adults having existential crisis's over their ages.. consider it a cool super power that gives you an upper hand. the kind where you make an adult go crazy lol

    ReplyDelete
  133. I think that a lot of people will chuckle (a light laugh) at it, because it's something we're not used to hearing, but I've never heard anyone complain about it, say it's bad or make fun of it. ^^ I think someone may laugh because it's surprising or amusing to hear, but in the end we find it charming that honorifics are added to names that we're not used to hearing them with. Even in your language, I'm also part of Japanese fandoms, and most people still find it charming with Japanese honorifics as well... It's different, but it's not bad.



    Honestly, I kind of wish we had some form of honorifics in English, I feel like the line between respect and disrespect is crossed too often in this language...

    ReplyDelete
  134. cuz that 2000 generation r fucked tbh personal opinion

    Had the honor to witness him live in NYC, and honestly after seeing musicians like him performing live, you kind of "get" who people refer as an artist. A real artist. I am going to see Eric Clapton tonight, so utterly excited.

    ReplyDelete
  137. So, what went wrong for the two American males also caught smuggling amphetamines via Fedex in 2010? Why were they prosecuted?


    Paul McCartney has faced numerous country bans over the years. He probably received some assurances that he would be given entry into Korea before scheduling his original concert date last year.

Paul mccartney is in the beatles ? to be honest i always heard his name but never knew what he does or who he is,its the first time i see his face & i also know the beatles but i don't know the names of the members either like i heard a few songs but never really looked for songs nor info about them..maybe because im born in 1997 or maybe its just because i always loved and listened to hip hop since i was small -Please don't hate me for this comment,im sorry for not knowing much about them,at least i know who the beatles are & heard a few songs lol i just don't know the names of each members -
