Article: 'SMTM5' BewhY dominates... Flowsik, Boi B and myunDo's shocking elimination

1. [+1,0784, -440] So sad to see Flowsik go...

2. [+9,209, -410] This is insane, how did #Gun pass but Boi B and Flowsik were eliminated ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+7,875, -322] BewhY really did dominaet but I liked Boi B's stage too... he was the ace, sad to see him go ㅠㅠ

4. [+8,123, -484] Eliminating Flowsik is a crazy decision

5. [+7,016, -173] Boi B did well, finally a song to represent him. Congratulations and fighting.

6. [+2,654, -66] Even Woo Taewoon could've handled myunDo, no biggie

7. [+2,627, -61] BewhY is really good but Boi B was cool too... I really don't think the difference is warranted. I hope Boi B comes out with good music in the future.

8. [+2,567, -70] Boi B was good, definitely deserved more points than he got...

9. [+2,629, -109] Can't believe Flowsik was eliminated, makes no sense

1. [+614, -31] I really do think BewhY made it this far because he's good but I think 'Tiger Butterfly' is going to do better on the charts... Gil is daebak

2. [+511, -29] Nevermind performance and all, BewhY just dominated ㅋㅋ

3. [+419, -35] Winner is BewhY daebak!!!!

4. [+108, -6] Boi B deserved way more than the points he got... Byungyoon is just too popular though

5. [+101, -13] I'll never get why Flowsik lost to Xitsuh. The fact that Xitsuh keeps making it up this far is the biggest error of the season.

6. [+93, -3] #Gun and Xitsuh only made it this far because of the producing...

7. [+85, -9] I think they're all good rappers but not Xitsuh... he just lucked out with the right teams. Olltii was so much better today and the better rapper too. Xitsuh's totally riding on Zion T's work.

8. [+69, -6] Gil's team is probably going to hit daebak on the digital charts... BewhY's going to win it all anyway. But Flowsik... why eliminate him ㅠㅠ

[Pann] SM leading the way for EDM in Korea?



Pann: The reason SM has only been putting out EDM albums

Post talks about how some fans have been frustrated with SM constantly putting out EDM albums lately and goes on to explain that one of SM's 2016 plans for the year was an EDM label business where Lee Soo Man explained that he wanted to bring EDM into Korea as a major genre.

1. [+131, -47] There's honestly no agency like SM that tries as hard as they do to advance K-Pop. Most agencies either follow the style SM is doing or touch up a bit on whatever SM has already done. I'm sure people now aren't happy with the style of music SM is pursuing at the moment but there's nothing you can do. Of course taking a foreign genre like EDM and sticking Korean lyrics in it are going to sound unfamiliar and strange at first but I think SM is helping us to broaden our music tastes and I'm sure once enough time passes, EDM will be a more familiar sound to us too...

2. [+112, -23] Lee Soo Man definitely works with the future in plan. He seems to have a good eye for it too. I'm not sure how this EDM project is going to go but I like that SM is always trying new things.

3. [+106, -15] As someone who likes both EDM and ballads, I like this new direction. Unfortunately, Koreans still prefer ballad over EDM but as you all have seen by now, SM doesn't really follow what the public wants, which is why SM artists generally do poorly on the digital charts (for example Tiffany and Luna). I like EDM but I'm aware that it's something that people will either really love or really hate.

4. [+34, -2] I think SM's only able to experiment with stuff like EDM because they have enough power and money to. Most agencies don't have the resources to invest in the future and are too busy supporting the groups that they have now. SM has both the time and resources to work on the future so I know that they're going to be successful with this project too. I really can't imagine how much more SM will continue to grow, they're just in another world compared to other agencies.

5. [+34, -1] But Luna's 'Free Somebody', Jonghyun's 'I Like It', and EXO's 'Lucky One' have great beats. Very new sounding and addictive.

6. [+33, -4] I like house music too. SM definitely does go for experimental things.

7. [+29, -3] I really like Taeyeon's 'Why'. I used to not like EDM but if SM keeps coming out with songs like 'Why', I think I can grow to like it.

8. [+19, -2] It's true that EDM is popular all over the world but not in Korea which is why SM is following what's trending in the world as opposed to our country. People can hate on SM all they want for not catering to what the public wants but they're ultimately following what's trending all over the world and that's EDM. One thing's for sure is that our digital charts are filled with the same genre and I remember being shocked when I first heard SHINee's 'View' last year. I had no idea that I would ever like a song of that genre but SM really did open my eyes to new music and I like that they're slowly leading our country like this. It's not only ballads or tacky dance songs that should be considered music good enough for the charts.

9. [+18, -6] All the people who claim that SM has never been a leader in music must've been born yesterday because SM was the first company to start the concept of idols. Other agencies started producing idols after SM did ㅋㅋㅋ SM has always been at the forefront~

10. [+17, -1] Well SM isn't traditional EDM but I think their version of it is okay in itself. They have several composers on one song too.

Kang Ta shares a story of when he once pissed his ex-girlfriend off


Article: 'Starry Night' Kang Ta, "My ex-girlfriend was a celebrity" surprise confession

Source: Herald Pop via Naver



"I once got to meet her friends. It was our first time meeting so I tried to be nice to them by pouring them water and picking apart their fish from the bones but my girlfriend got really mad at me and left."

Lee Ji Hye commented, "You're so clueless. Why would you pick apart their fish, you're not their mother. It's okay to treat them with manners but not their food."

Kang Ta retorted, "I wanted to look good for my girlfriend's friends and be nice to them. She got mad at me for two days because of that though."

-

1. [+4,063, -61] Women do not want their boyfriends to be good to their friends ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ women want their boyfriends to be good to only themselves in front of their friends

2. [+2,456, -76] Kang Ta oppa, you took it too far by picking apart their fish for them. Your girlfriend had every right to be mad.

3. [+2,356, -58] Just keep a basic sense of manners in front of your girlfriend's friends. All girlfriends want is for you to show that you're good to her in front of them.

4. [+1,217, -242] He's handsome, a good singer, a director at SM, it'd be weird if a guy like him didn't have a girlfriend. And seeing as how he isn't shy to admit that his ex-girlfriend was a celebrity must mean he was pretty public with her, they were just never caught. That's pretty cool of him.

5. [+361, -9] All boyfriends need to do in front of their girlfriend's friends is act caring towards her. You'll get enough points that way. Don't extend that all the way to their friends too, otherwise it'll just cause misunderstandings between the friends because her friends will think he's interested in them. Just be good to your own woman and keep within a distance with her friends.

6. [+316, -7] Just be good to your own woman. Don't be clueless like paying for even her friend's stuff thinking you're acting like a caring boyfriend. That's how you piss girlfriends off.

7. [+167, -4] I know he used to date Park Ji Yoon.. I wonder if this is another celebrity?

8. [+117, -2] Picking apart the fish for her friend ㅋㅋㅋ that is going too far ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+86, -2] Giving the friend an extra plate to pick her fish bones on is fine but doing it for her is a no

10. [+89, -6] Men tend to like it when their girlfriend is good to their friends while women like it when their boyfriend is good to only them

1. [+411, -19] Other than long running varieties, stuff like favorite actors and singers change all the time according to trends so it's amazing that 'Running Man' and 'Infinity Challenge' have managed to stay up there so high

2. [+380, -26] Yoo Jae Suk the God

3. [+279, -34] Wow, Yoo Jae Suk... and gotta point out Big Bang at #1 and G-Dragon at 32..

4. [+27, -13] Looks like Hwang Chi Yeol really is popular in China, can't believe he's ranked 3rd there

5. [+25, -9] Does Korea really have no other representative drama than 'Descenants of the Sun'? That drama was such trash and shouldn't represnt Korea at all

6. [+18, -4] 'Running Man' at 85.9%... just how popular is that show over there

7. [+14, -3] I really had no idea 'Running Man' would become this huge when I first started watching it. I of course felt that the concept was so fresh for a variety show but I surely thought it'd fail...

8. [+14, -4] Proud of all of them, thank you

9. [+12, -1] Winter Sonata... was a hit in Japan. I don't think it's actually ranked 3rd in Korea;;

10. [+12, -11] I seriously can't stand Runnign Man because it's so corny.. sigh;

11. [+12, -11] I wonder when Song Joong Ki's bubble will pop

12. [+11, -10] Don't rankings like this change all the time? No way that Song Joong Ki is Korea's actual second favorite actor...;;
