Actresses begin to open up for their support of #metoo



Article: "These stories aren't about strangers" Female celebrities join in on the '#MeToo' movement

Source: OSEN via Naver

1. [+352, -9] Sex criminals who've been abusing their powers in the industry are probably shaking in their boots now. I hope they all get exposed and are forced to pay the price.

2. [+331, -12] I hope that all of your bravery in stepping forward will help in carving out this deep-rooted evil

3. [+297, -16] Seeing that it's mostly rookies or less popular actresses who are stepping forward makes me think that all the so-called top star actresses must be in bed with the PDs and may as well be accomplices

4. [+27, -0] We all knew that the industry is basically a high end escort service, right? I remember reading an article a long time ago that even mothers of child actors would sleep with PDs to get their children roles.

5. [+27, -4] So where's that self-proclaimed feminist Yoo Ah In during all of this? The man who so bravely claimed that women who argue with him are feminazis while he's a true feminist ㅋㅋㅋ the industry is a mess right now with sex criminals galore and yet where is he hiding~~~~

6. [+26, -0] While there are a lot of victims, I bet you there are probably a ton of female celebrities who rose to their top star status by sleeping their way to the top.

7. [+25, -1] Once this #metoo movement ramps up, they're going to have to go deeper into the culture of providing sexual favors and sponsors but these scandals never escalate any further than that because way too many important officials are involved at that point...

8. [+17, -2] Remember when there was that documentary special on sex crimes in the industry and so many male stars like Yoo Jae Suk, Tiger JK, EXO, Eric Nam, Dynamic Duo, Jung Jun Young, and etc said it was an issue we should all be aware of... and where are they now?

9. [+10, -0] Finally #metoo has reached us ㅋㅋㅋ expose them all ㅎ

10. [+8, -0] Talk about a butterfly effect

1. [+783, -53] I like that a man can still look at you with honey dripping out of his eyes even after marriage

2. [+765, -43] A woman's happiness comes from loving a man who only loves and cares for you. Never continue dating a man who wonders about other women while with you.

3. [+596, -34] They look so happy

4. [+52, -6] Lee Hyori said that being rich and free helps you relax enough to be good to each other ㅋㅋ All of you could be going on vacation, being caring like Rain, and dolling up like Kim Tae Hee if you had the money. Don't blame your partners for not giving you this type of happiness. Blame yourselves and your own economic situation.

5. [+38, -3] They're going on vacation without their body? I'm so jealous... I need healing time too

6. [+33, -8] Must be nice... I gave birth around the same time as Kim Tae Hee but my kid has a fever and my husband's blaming it on me... when he never even watches the kid, sigh... I may not be Kim Tae Hee but I make as much as my husband does... so jealous of Kim Tae Hee.

7. [+25, -8] Kim Tae Hee's pretty even in blurry pictures

8. [+20, -3] Seeing her smile so brightly like that just shows how good Rain must be to her. It's nice to see them living so happily together.

Source: Ilgan Sports via Nate

"Hello, this is Don Malik. Last December, I met with a fan and abused my power in the relationship between an artist and a fan and harassed her. I genuinely apologize to the victim. I have realized my wrong and will work on becoming a better person so that I don't cause any scandal big or small and always act with caution. I'm sorry."

-

1. [+200, -0] So that's what he thinks of his relationship with this fans... just another source of power for himself

2. [+172, -1] Our country has quite a lot of sex criminals, this is just amazing

3. [+82, -1] This is a mess

4. [+10, -0] Is he being quick with the apology in case more victims come forward? ㅋㅋ

5. [+4, -1] What relationship between an artist and a fan ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+3, -0] He needs to be punished since he harassed a minor

7. [+2, -1] It's so common for fans and male idols to get together, unbeknownst to the stupid fangirls

Yang Yoseob reveals an extravagant fan gift of premium beef


Article: Yang Yoseob, "Fans send me beef by all the different parts"

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+383, -59] Sigh, you fans need to be doing these things for your parents

2. [+348, -93] It's a problem that kids are giving this stuff as gifts but also that the idols are accepting them

3. [+273, -62] This isn't something to brag about... the culture of fan gifts really needs to be gotten rid of

4. [+36, -17] Shouldn't he be saying instead that expensive gifts are pressuring? It helps his image more to say that... pretty thoughtless

5. [+35, -11] He's super famous for loving his fans... the best replies are a bit much;;

6. [+33, -12] I've rarely seen anyone as nice to his fans as Yang Yoseob so what's with the comments...

7. [+31, -8] Well there are idols who receive much more extravagant gifts. And besides, Yang Yoseob is famous for his fan love. All of the songs in their new album were written with his fans in mind. I even saw a fancam of him asking fans in the standing area of their concert to take a step back so no one gets hurt. He really looks out for them.

8. [+25, -15] Why do you people care what fans choose to do with their own money ㅋㅋㅋ all of you telling fans to buy their parents things, I'm sure you've bought your own parents these things too, right ^^?

9. [+22, -9] It's not like the past where fan gifts are cute things like a 1,000 paper cranes or teddy bears... nowadays fans give premium beef and luxury brands. Idols who brag about stuff like this on TV just make fans even crazier and make them gift bigger things to be mentioned again. I've heard chodings these days even steal their mom's credit cards to buy idol gifts. It's really an issue that celebrities are just accepting these things.

10. [+19, -8] Celebrities give back tons of gifts to their fans these days too. Some of you act like you've never received or given a gift in your life. Nothing wrong with giving a gift to someone you like.

11. [+17, -22] It's not like these fans are using your money so mind your own business.

12. [+16, -13] Hilarious to think that these stupid fangirls who probably can barely afford all you can eat bbq buffets are spending hundreds of bucks to send premium beef to someone already sitting on millions ㅋㅋ

12. [+16, -16] Some fans save money to buy gifts but nowadays there are a ton of older fans who are rich enough to afford these things easily. There are a lot of nuna fans in professional careers ㅋ

13. [+11, -7] Tired of millennials whining about how hard living in Korea is when they're spending money on celebrities ㅋㅋㅋㅋ why not invest that money in yourself.. not like these celebrities will even remember your names ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Bobby talks about the many rules YG has in place for iKON


Article: 'Radio Star' iKON Bobby, "We're not allowed to greet labelmates Black Pink"

Source: Biz Enter via Nate

"The rules at our company are a bit strict. Recently, we had to start letting our manager know before we left our dorm to go to the convenience store or wherever. We don't have driver's licenses so we can't drive. I don't have a problem with that but sometimes I do feel silly that I'm a 24 year old adult having to tell someone that I'm going to the corner store. Also, the type of music that I want to pursue right now is ssen hip hop but I'm not allowed to. As for dating, we're not allowed to even bump into Black Pink. We're not allowed to greet one another. Before when I was a trainee, whenever I saw a pretty woman, I'd try and hit on her, but now I just think 'she's beautiful' and give up."

-

1. [+231, -12] Bobby seems more fit to be doing something like Jay Park, out on his own and pursuing the music that he wants to do..

2. [+188, -9] You boys need to think hard about why Winner is allowed to greet Black Pink but you guys aren't ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+124, -13] Quite unfortunate that they're not even allowed to greet their own labelmates

4. [+43, -3] YG is hard on you guys because you've guys have had scandals since your trainee days ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Winner, on the other hand, are close with Black Pink

5. [+37, -2] After watching him on this episode, I can see why so many restrictions are placed on Bobby. And please, just stick to rapping.

6. [+21, -1] I wonder why? Winner and Black Pink seem close ㅠ

7. [+19, -2] Now think about why Winner is allowed to and you guys aren't...

8. [+5, -2] Why would YG let someone who hits on any pretty girl to do whatever he wishes, of course they're going to put rules on you

9. [+4, -1] He sounds like he needs to pull a Jay Park. Seems like kids from America have a hard time adjusting to the Korean agency system.

10. [+4, -0] Hypocritical of Yang Hyun Suk when he dated and married within his own company too...
