Olympic 3x gold medalist archer An San's short hair stokes anti-feminist ire from male communities


Article: Foreign media speak up about 'An San' controversy... "They are like ilbe"

Source: Money Today via Naver

1. [+8,392, -3,567] Foolish Korean men. You are probably the only people in the world who use the word feminism as a swear.

2. [+4,597, -826] Both her short haircut and her identification as a feminist are nothing problematic but Korean men are making them out to be an issue. And now that foreign media are taking note of how embarrassing they are, they're running around claiming it's "fake news" ㅋㅋㅋ The foolish words of Korean men have been noted all over the world and now you're running away?

3. [+3,869, -293] The majority of the top posts no male community boards are still about confiscating her medal, s*xually harassing her, and even death threats. None of this is "fake News". You thought the foreign media outlets would have your back but even they're putting you guys down. I see some men even try to claim that the female communities staged this entire thing but that's so pathetic of you to even make up. You took a dump on the ground so you clean it up and take responsibility for it.

4. [+3,479, -229] Being a feminist is not even a crime. She had only won two golds and hadn't even finished her last match when everyone was hounding her on her articles, demanding her to explain herself, demanding that she return her gold medals ㅋㅋ You men only have a platform here in Korea but go overseas and ask anyone if feminism is a bad thing and see how they respond to you ㅋㅋ

5. [+2,825, -340] Now that even the foreign media are putting them down, they're all running away, as expected. Keep exposing them!

Article: "Feminism is a dirty word in Korea" International media respond to 'An San' short haircut controversy

Source: Seoul News via Naver

1. [+4,682, -485] I'm so... embarrassed. Our athletes work so hard for our country but these 'men' are making a mess of everything. The article's right, Korea ranks in the dozen when it comes to economic prowess and yet we still haven't escaped our male-centered society. Please, if you're thinking of doing something stupid, think it by yourself... As if the entire world knowing about your hidden camera antics wasn't enough, now everyone will think of our country as backwards on character and gender equality ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

2. [+3,824, -257] Who cares if Ahn San is a feminist. She's our national athlete ㅋ The fact of the matter is, male community sites have been demanding that she return her medal all because she has short hair. 

3. [+2,370, -246] Korean men first attacked her for her short hair, then for graduating from a women's college, for being from Gwangjoo, for liking female idols, then dug through her Instagram to claim she used feminist terminology, and then began demanding that she return her gold medals only to turn around and try to blame feminists for this entire controversy when Ahn San herself is a feminist. First of all, I have no idea why her being a feminist is an issue at all that needs to be this controversial. They took issue with the fact that she had short hair = feminist and now they're all acting like they never said such a thing;;

4. [+1,522, -39] Male community sites have been trying to shift the blame to feminists... ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ but screencaps exist, and it's just pathetic at this point... how bored do you to be to go this far;

5. [+634, -19] We work so hard to build up our country only for the men to bring it down with hidden cameras and gender discrimination ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ what's so wrong with being a feminist?????? We're simply asking you to view women as human beings ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ stop watching hidden camera videos, stop s*xually harassing women, start recognizing women for their talents over their looks, start sharing the housework chores, stop assaulting women... that's all feminism is asking for, why is that such an issue?

Goo Hye Sun requests to have her divorce removed from her Namu Wiki profile


Article: Goo Hye Sun requests 'divorce' to be removed from her Wiki entry for invasion of privacy

Source: Insight via Instagram

1. [+1,912] But she's the one who revealed her divorce to the world.. how is this an invasion of her privacy?

2. [+727] Why does she always do things that she knows will get her hate... ㅠ what a shame

3. [+670] Wait, she revealed her divorce to the public first, so how is this an invasion of privacy? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+331] Every time she opens her mouth, the support for Ahn Jae Hyun continues to grow ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+414] Poor Ahn Jae Hyun

6. [+176] How is that an invasion of privacy 😢

7. [+124] She revealed it first so what is she talking about??

8. [+114] There's a difference between her coming out with something a third party site detailing it on her profile. If she feels that it's an invasion of her privacy, then it's an invasion of her privacy. Why do any of you think you get to have a say in that? ㅋㅋ

9. [+86] It almost feels like she's sick from not getting enough attention...

10. [+99] She's allowed to have it erased from her profile if she wants. Why are people being so twisted about it... Not like Wiki is the word of the law or anything ㅎㅎ

The start of the "3rd generation" of idol groups: Twice, Gfriend, BTS, IOI, Seventeen, Black Pink, Red Velvet, EXO, Mamamoo, Lovelyz, Got7

1. [+745] Wow... I really miss those days ㅠㅠ EXO, BTS, Black Pink, Red Velvet, Twice, the one tops...

2. [+361] Of course I love the 3rd generation groups but my favorite will always be the 2nd generation..

3. [+325] 2016... BTS totally blew up with 'Blood, Sweat, Tears', Black Pink hit a two home run with their debut with 'Whistle' and 'Playing with Fire', Twice and Red Velvet were at the top of the game with 'TT' and 'Russian Roulette'... Seventeen, Girlfriend, Mamamoo were all known for their unique concepts.. It was a year with a lot of high quality and variety.

4. [+182] Truly a legendary year ㅠㅠㅠ

5. [+120] Red Velvet and EXO.. ❤️❤️

7. [+54] The 3rd generation was good but there are a lot of people who are still missing the 2nd generation era

8. [+48] 2016 makes me nostalgic but 2017/2018 was K-Pop's peak

10. [+11] I remember always hearing 'Rough' whenever I turned the radio on in the car in 2016... ㅠㅠ so sad to think Girlfriend will never have another comeback again

Soccer/variety star Song Jong Guk is living in the mountains after his scandalous divorce?

Article: Song Jong Guk becomes a man of nature after divorce, farming medicinal herbs 1000m in a mountain

Source: Joongang Ilbo via Naver

1. [+3,594, -54] Has he broken up with the woman he got into an affair with?

2. [+1,736, -70] People never change, I hope he rots up there

3. [+1,003, -50] And what about the mistress? Where'd she go? He probably thought their love would last forever when he was busy throwing away his family and cheating, huh?

4. [+829, -30] Then who's running his soccer club? Or are they just using his name?

5. [+728, -90] The final ending for a man who threw away his wife ㅎㅎㅎ

6. [+384, -8] They say "deep in the mountains" but you can drive a car up that distance easily. He also had a home flown in that includes his own soccer field. It's quite luxurious, really. He also doesn't live there full time, mostly uses it as a summer home. "Man of nature" as if ㅋ

7. [+349, -9] I bet this whole thing is just a staged concept. He's divorced twice and thrown away his own children, why even give him any air time?

8. [+345, -7] This is all a lie. He still runs his own soccer club and built up an expensive aluminum home in Kangwondo somewhere. Go look at his YouTube, he makes a lot of money. His hobby must be acting all poor and pitiful for sympathy. He disgusts me.

9. [+170, -15] The irony of this whole situation is that his ex-wife had an affair with him which is what caused the divorce with his first wife. He has a track record of cheating and she still married him, what made her think he wouldn't do it again? Why treat him like the bad guy only now that it's happened to her? 

10. [+111, -4] Tsk tsk tsk, seems like he's been dumped by his own mistress ㅋㅋㅋ
