Media continues to side with Yewon


Article: Lee Tae Im and Yewon scandal, must people have to find a 'witch' in everything

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+4,539, -217] Why only say this now and not when Lee Tae Im was made out to be a witch? Is there an end to Yewon's media play?

2. [+4,229, -220] Did Yewon's agency pay you to write this? You know very well who it was that made Lee Tae Im out into a witch and to only come out and say enough with the witches now means that you were paid by her agency to write it.

3. [+3,608, -141] Just shut up. It's because of Dispatch and all you other journalists that are making this worse.

4. [+280, -12] The article is so biased.

5. [+276, -10] Articles like this should've come out when Lee Tae Im took the blame for everything

1. [+13,132, -477] Where were these articles when Lee Tae Im was the witch? Whatever the case, Yewon's the worst person for throwing Lee Tae Im into a corner with her lies.

2. [+12,372, -363] Funny how there weren't articles like this when Lee Tae Im was the witch...

3. [+11,123, -283] What's pissing everyone off about this scandal is that a huge agency was in cahoots with a broadcast station to complete exile a person, and all of their lies were finally revealed. And what's pissing everyone off about articles like this is that the media never said a word when Lee Tae Im was the witch but now that tables have turned, Yewon's getting nonstop shield articles after the other.

4. [+9,162, -273] There needs to be a witch in this scandal because take a look at Yewon's lies... if she isn't the witch, then it's Lee Tae Im who takes the blame.

5. [+6,318, -166] Yewon's sponsors are so strong ㅋㅋ When the witch hunt was on Lee Tae Im, the media wrote articles as if they were so sure she was in the wrong and made Yewon out to be an angel and now they're mad that their lies are exposed ㅋ The hypocrisy of the media

Article: What's going to happen to Yewon in the future?

1. [+1,348, -35] Why is it that every article is defending Yewon? Are journalists even reading the comments? How can they claim that public sentiment is half divided? Reality is that if you support Lee Tae Im, you're instantly made best reply and if you support Yewon, you're downvoted into dust. Is the media seriously trying to blindly act like nothing happened and just continue to support Yewon? This is why the power of an agency is so scary. Lee Tae Im's agency has no power so she can do nothing but watch as she turns to dust.

2. [+1,231, -41] If it were me, Yewon-ah, I would've beat you on the spot. Be fortunate that you had to deal with Lee Tae Im only. I hate sly foxes like you. Never want to see you on broadcast again.

3. [+978, -28] The only solution for her is to just go reflect and never come back out.

4. [+527, -11] This is merely a fight between a hot tempered senior and a disrespectful junior. What's important here, however, is that one admitted her mistake and apologized and the other lied to everyone's faces and forced the other into hitting rock bottom. It's almost like Yewon did everything she could to try and drive Lee Tae Im to commit suicide which is what gives me goosebumps.

5. [+328, -6] Article is seriously trying to claim that only a portion of the public is against Yewon? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Nononono, it's the majority... and what's going to happen to Yewon? Why isn't anyone going to worry about what's going to happen to Lee Tae Im?

1. [+28,172, -173] What's worse than Yewon speaking informally is that she lied. She lied to the point where Lee Tae Im was completely exiled from the industry. She lied to maintain her own image while ruining the life of another. It's horrible.

2. [+17,573, -309] If she has even an ounce of shame, she needs to apologize and reflect... this is so shameless, promoting on like this.

3. [+7,523, -106] Yewon's becoming the second Clara... so why lie?

4. [+4,571, -43] Amazing of her agency to stay quiet all this long ㅋㅋㅋ shouldn't they at least apologize?

5. [+4,168, -49] Lee Tae Im halted all activities and apologized before going into reflection... Yewon should at least apologize too.

Americans debate whether the Asian education system is more superior


Article: American vs Asian education styles... American media argues over which system is superior

Source: Korea Ilbo via Nate

Debate on WP and WJP over whether Asia's rote memorization style of education is better than America's creativity-oriented education system.

1. [+127, -8] How can Americans be envious of a rote memorization oriented education system that does nothing but create study robots. You need to promote creativity to foster talents in a variety of areas.

2. [+120, -11] I apologize to America for our country spreading the wrong idea

3. [+85, -2] It wouldn't work in America because even holding their students back till 5 pm would be controversial over there when students in Korea are held at school for longer than that. I can't believe some Americans actually want to copy our system when Koreans are scared of even having kids because of the excessive cost of private education ㅋㅋ

4. [+13, -1] Korea's education system: Samsung, America's education system: Apple

5. [+13, -2] I graduated high school in Korea and graduated college in America and while both systems have their pros and cons, I found Korea's private education system to better. However, it's true that it gets rid of any sense of creativity in the student. America, on the other hand, has an enriched culture of debate and discussion and the opinions of students and professors are treated equally as important, allowing for them to discuss their ideas more freely. Korea, however, has such a strong society of hierarchy and rank that this is impossible. Whatever the professor says, the student has to say "yes, yes, you're completely right".

6. [+10, -3] You know what the Korean teachers always say. "You can research new ideas all you want when you become a professor, your first job right now is to just memorize everything."

7. [+9, -2] Why does America have more Nobel awards if our system is more superior?

8. [+8, -1] ㅋㅋㅋ I don't get why a country who is living just fine sitting at a comfortable #1 spot is trying to implement a system from a country that has the lowest happiness levels in the world

9. [+8, -1] Korea's stats are merely numbers that reflect how many students achieve their educational goals. Ask them if they're happy and you'll get a different picture.

10. [+8, -1] If they implement our education system, their suicide rates are going to go up.

11. [+7, -1] The world seriously has to be crazy to think that copying Korea in anything is a good idea

12. [+6, -0] If Obama thinks this is a good idea... he's obviously trying to be remembered as the worst president in history.

13. [+4, -3] I feel like Americans think Asian education is superior because most of the Asian students who go to America to study are seen as more advanced in math and sciences so Americans automatically consider them smarter... the error in their judgment is that for an Asian student to even be able to afford studying abroad means that they come from a well off family that has already invested a lot of money in their education more than the average Asian student so of course they seem more advanced..

14. [+3, -0] For fostering laborers: Korean education, for fostering creators: Western education

Lee Hwan Hee talks about being a former SM trainee and Seohyun's close friend


Article: Lee Hwan Hee "I am a former SM trainee... close friends with Soshi Seohyun" tears up

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+303, -9] You never know how your life will end up... they used to be on the same level in the past but now there's such a huge difference between them. Motivates me to go study even though it's a Sunday.

2. [+274, -13] This is an example of how life works... they may have started on the same starting line but they're living completely different lives in the end. She almost made it to debuting with SNSD but got eliminated... if she had made it, she'd probably be traveling overseas and being treated like a top star, living an amazing life while Seohyun would be the one trying to get on any show she can to get her name out there. Hwan Hee seemed talented too but talent is everything when it comes to celebrities. Funny how one piece of paper determines how your life can turn out for them. It may be tough for her now but I'm sure she'll find success later so find strength ㅋㅋ

3. [+220, -25] Should've picked someone like her instead of Jessica ㅠㅠ She seems like such a hard worker

4. [+17, -1] How sad. She was so close to debuting with SNSD if she even took that group picture with them.

5. [+12, -2] You could make a whole new SNSD group with all the kids who almost made it but didn't

6. [+11, -4] Maybe she was eliminated because her image overlapped with Tiffany's~~ ㅠㅠ Her voice and face are both styles that SM would like, how unfortunate

7. [+11, -1] ㅠㅠ I feel so bad for her.. if she's Seohyun's friend, she should be 25 or 26 years old this year.. while one's a member of Korea's top girl group, the other is a no-name celebrity just barely getting her name out there... I always wondered what happened to idols who never made it to debut and I figure most end up like her...

8. [+7, -1] So fortunate that SM eliminated T-ara's Soyeon. Saved themselves some big trouble.

1. [+1,043, -32] Wasn't bored the entire time watching. She has a pretty and cute face and so good at basketball. Totally fell into Amber's charms.

2. [+1,022, -46] She's pretty... who said she looked like a man??????!!!

4. [+685, -16] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Cute and funny ㅋㅋ

5. [+137, -11] Amber's way prettier than CL

6. [+125, -5] She looked pretty with long hair on 'SNL'... probably because she's an SM idol but she definitely has a visual.

7. [+113, -4] Randomly saw while flipping through channels and had no idea it was Amber because she was so pretty;;;

8. [+110, -4] She's tall but has a dainty body... thin legs and long hair make her look feminine and innocent.

9. [+95, -3] Didn't know it was Amber at first but she's pretty ㅋㅋㅋ
