1. [+351, -67] They're a girl crush concept but a pretty version of it. Out of all the idols, they're the prettiest from the clothes they wear to their visuals. And all four are good at live singing so they're worth a watch.

2. [+272, -44] Honestly they're all pretty and good at live so it's great!

3. [+247, -44] Their visuals are great but they even have live skills so it's awesome. I caught them on TV once and they have a charm that makes you keep watching.

4. [+16, -7] Jennie's so pretty

5. [+16, -4] They're definitely prettier than 2NE1 but they don't have the impact that 2NE1 had ㅡㅡ;; 2NE1 was just too powerful

6. [+14, -5] Jennie looks so innocent dressed like that

7. [+7, -6] Not sure why the best replies are trying to brainwash everyone into thinking they're good at live. They only pre-record 'Inkigayo' for music shows and lip synced on all their year-end stages. None of it was pure live ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+6, -7] Jennie's looks are crazy. Jisoo is like a version of Kim Tae Hee whereas Jennie gives me Han Ye Seul vibes.

9. [+6, -2] Fell for them after seeing 'So Hot'. Lisa's so good at rap, she's cool.

Victim of Park Yoochun's dog bite claims he told her to touch the dog first


Article: [Interview] A-ssi reps, "Park Yoochun offered me to touch his dog first... I'm confused as to why the wrong story got out"

Source: SBS funE via Nate

1. [+785, -43] If it took 7 years of surgery, she really should've kept in contact with him in the middle at least... Maybe Park Yoochun thought she was fully recovered because he never heard from her so he assumed paying for her initial medical expenses was enough.

2. [+696, -44] "A-ssi had 80 stitches on her face and has a deep scar 2 cm under her cheekbone from the dog's teeth biting and pulling her from the lip. A claims that all the medical expenses have amounted to 320 million won." Wow, that's really bad...

3. [+589, -60] I thought the person bit was a man all this time... can't believe it's a woman, hul...

4. [+101, -15] I still don't get why she's coming with a lawsuit now. She should've tried to get in contact with him in the middle or at least tried to reach a compromise before going to a lawsuit. She suffered a big accident with a lot of trauma involved, it makes no sense that she stayed quiet all this time while spending all of her own money on her treatment ㅋ

5. [+90, -28] I still find her suspicious. She's talking about trauma and everything but I find it hard to believe that she was willing to just pay up on all the hospital fees out of her own pocket without a word to Park Yoochun. I really just see this lawsuit as a way to get money out of him.

6. [+82, -13] Yeah, it is pretty weird that she paid for all of this out of her own pocket without getting in contact with him... She needs to submit some receipts to the court.

7. [+73, -10] I really don't want to take Park Yoochun's side but she was gone for 7 years... how many people in the world can just cough up 1.2 billion won for something that happened 7 years ago? Yeah he's rich but there's no one alive who will just hand over that kind of money like that...

8. [+57, -7] From the public's perspective, 7 years is what's tripping us up... 7 years... that's the time someone could've served in the army 4 times in a row. She could've filed this lawsuit earlier like before he suffered a decline in image. Her lawsuit was filed in December, at the time of his scandal;;

9. [+38, -4] Yeah but we want to know why now

10. [+37, -4] I read in another article that Park Yoochun gave her treatment money but she refused. Park's mother even visited her to apologize. Isn't it a bit of a stretch to only come out now and start demanding money? Maybe Park Yoochun thought the issue was resolved when she refused his money and didn't follow up further. No one's going to chase someone down when they keep saying it's okay. And why this lawsuit anyway? Why not just ask him to pay the medical bills and be done with it?

11. [+26, -9] I really wonder how she spent 7 long years of "trauma" without a word all that time. If someone's dog physically harmed me in such a traumatic way, I couldn't even wait a week before I was either filing a lawsuit or looking for a solution. Amazing, amazing.

Kwang Soo gives interview on the legal battle for T-ara's name


Article: [Exclusive] Interview] Kim Kwang Soo, "I have no greed over the T-ara name... but it doesn't belong to the personal ownership of the members"

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+789, -34] What is he saying? ㅋㅋ He's basically telling them that they can't use it in the end. This is why his agency is going downhill~

2. [+684, -27] Claims he doesn't care about the name -> applies to trademark it. Basically the same as saying he had a drink but it shouldn't count as drunk driving.

3. [+500, -93] Do you realize that all because of you, a group that was rival-tier with SNSD ended up getting all sorts of hate from the entire country? And yet they still stuck by your side and kept their mouths shut as you worked them in China. Have some human decency... how can you not be embarrassed of yourself?

4. [+32, -11] But Kwang Soo did let Davichi and SG Wannabe use their names after they left. Seems like there's something on T-ara's side for him to not let them use it... like attitude issues or something. Clearly there's something they're not matching up on. This isn't Kwang Soo's first rodeo in the idol business. Davichi and SG Wannabe were just as popular back then too but he gave them rights to their brand.

5. [+29, -5] I was in jr high school and too young to know any better back then but I now realize what a horrible company this is with all their media play and bad mouthing artists who don't renew. I have yet to see a group amicably leave this company.

6. [+19, -7] You would think with all that he worked them for, he'd at least let them go now... they suffered so much for him and he's still dragging them through the mud.

7. [+18, -6] SG Wannabe and Davichi have set precedent though where Kwang Soo is willing to give you the name so it makes me wonder what T-ara did for him to not do the same...

8. [+16, -3] So by the sound of it, he's saying he would've given it to them if they asked in a respectful manner so I guess they did something to piss him off

9. [+16, -0] You have to admit that he's got an amazing eye for talent though... Jo Sung Mo, SG Wannabe, Seeya, Davichi, T-ara... I guess that's why he's managed to last this long in the industry with all his attitude problems since people do admit his eye for talent is great.

10. [+14, -4] If you consider SG Wannabe and Davichi, this doesn't seem like something MBK should take all the blame for

1. [+2,829, -25] Jonghyun-ah, I'll remember you through your songs. I love you. Thank you to his mother and SM for this.

2. [+2,336, -25] Jonghyun-ah, I'll enjoy this present you left for us. I won't forget you for a long time. Thank you.

3. [+1,936, -20] Hyun-ah, your warmth as a person is warming even me. You'll be spreading your warmth all over the world with these songs. Thank you for that, I love you.

4. [+1,921, -17] Profits will be used to set up a charity foundation. You'll be remembered as a good person.

5. [+1,732, -13] I was waiting for his songs.. ㅠㅠ please be happy where you are

6. [+322, -3] Thank you, mother. Jonghyun-ah, I hope that your music reaches you where you are. I miss you so much.

7. [+293, -4] I miss you so much, Jonghyun-ah. Thank you for consoling us until the very end. I've been waiting for news of this album for so long but it feels weird hearing that it'll finally be out. Like you said, we'll meet again someday. Good work today, thank you for this present.

8. [+272, -5] Jonghyun-ah, I miss you so much and it seems I'll finally be able to meet you again through your voice

1. [+281, -7] Such a warm person until the end... a charity foundation... thank you, mother. Jonghyun-ah, thank you too. I hope that your music rings loudly enough for you to hear from where you are.

2. [+239, -5] I miss you, I won't forget you

3. [+206, -5] The 'poet' from his album name. He originally wanted to be a poet. 'Artist' is what he always was. I hope that more people will listen to his good music.

4. [+21, -5] I hope SM pays more attention the needs of their artists so that this doesn't happen again...

5. [+19, -2] I still can't believe it

Teddy denies 'Heroine' was plagiarized, 100% his own creation



Article: [Official statement] Teddy reps, "Sunmi's 'Heroine' was NOT plagiarized... 100% his own creation"

Source: Sports Donga via Naver

1. [+5,712, -156] ????

2. [+5,634, -282] It's too similar to say that.. the overall way the song is structured. The EDM part of 'Gashina' is similar to 'Lean On' too... this is embarrassing for Korea.

3. [+5,159, -177] So shameless of PlagiarismTeddy

4. [+4,877, -185] ????????? I know nothing about music and even I can tell that it's similar

5. [+4,195, -162] All he did was add Korean lyrics to it... he really screwed Sunmi over

6. [+1,689, -41] This ba$tard has no shame ㅋㅋㅋㅋ by the way, he's not even Korean so he hasn't served in the army ever

7. [+1,509, -43] Shouldn't he at least give reasons why it's not plagiarism? It's hard for the rest of us to understand when all he's saying is no

8. [+1,430, -31] So just because he's saying it's not means that it's not? Shouldn't he be explaining how it's not??? He really sees the public as trash

Source: Nate

1. [+600, -71] Sunmi, please don't sing live!! I was so surprised... shes so extremely bad at singing. I get that she's more about the performance but come on ㅠㅠ

2. [+490, -28] Does he think he can just brush this off because he doubts an international singer will file a lawsuit? This just makes Sunmi get hate too. Everything is similar, not just the song. If she has any shame, she should quit while she can.

3. [+415, -74] Still can't forget Sunmi's shocking and horrifying live singing on 'Happy Together' yesterday. She also lip synced her comeback stage on 'M! Countdown'.

4. [+112, -60] What does this make Sunmi then? I don't want it to be plagiarism either but he needs to give more reasons than just saying it's not. How can Sunmi halt promos if the composer is saying he didn't plagiarize?

5. [+81, -23] Wow, this ba$tard's an idiot ㅋㅋ

6. [+57, -8] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I expected him to weasel his way out of this one since he's YG and all

7. [+51, -5] He really thinks he can cover the sky with his bare palm...

8. [+35, -3] That basically means Sunmi has to continue promos while getting all this hate ㅋㅋ

Article: Sunmi's 'Heroine' plagiarism controversy, YG deletes Teddy's production video on composing music

Source: Segye Ilbo via Nate

1. [+974, -9] So Yang Hyun Suk is really just a thug at this point, right? Why does he keep acting like this?

2. [+963, -8] This is why Yoo Byung Jae said there are a lot of people in YG who should be in jail

3. [+705, -8] Deleting the video is basically a silent way of admitting that he plagiarized

4. [+39, -2] All because of him, Sunmi is getting a sh*t ton of hate ㅡㅡ YG always keeps their mouth shut about issues like this

5. [+36, -1] Just too much bad news surrounding this agency

Article: 'Music Bank' Sunmi, no mention of 'Heroine' plagiarism scandal "I love my fans"

Source: Money Week via Nate

1. [+553, -46] At least when Lee Hyori had her plagiarism controversy, she apologized and halted her promos

2. [+517, -111] Her singing yesterday on 'Happy Together' was seriously bad ㅋㅋㅋ her face looks weird with all the plastic surgery now too. She was never talented to begin with, always just a performance centered kid. I knew she would never last long but I never thought her career would end over plagiarism... There's just a limit to how far performance singers can go since they have no innate talent of their own.

3. [+58, -2] The composer is the first person responsible for this but Sunmi is responsible as well. Sunmi wrote the lyrics and it's not just the song that's under accusation but the MV, choreography, and concept too. If she continues promos, it's only going to hurt her in the end. People will call her shameless.

4. [+46, -5] Why are people saying Sunmi's not responsible? If she was never caught, people would praise her for picking a good song and everything. The opposite of that means she should be responsible when the song doesn't do well either.

5. [+33, -1] For how pretty she is, she's got quite of a stubborn head on her shoulders~~ but then you have to wonder how many sly things she's seen in her career for how young she debuted. She probably had to be stubborn to last this long.

6. [+27, -1] She needs to put out a statement before sentiment turns worse against her. Halting promos is the best way to go since she has no idea how much worse this is going to get.

7. [+24, -5] Just consider this a little break and apologize before halting promos

8. [+22, -2] Wow, how can she be so shameless?
