IU the 'Icon of Savior'

Article: 'The Icon of Savior' Catch IU

Source: Newsis via Naver

Article talks about how IU has surpassed the title of 'icon of duet' and is now the icon of savior with her ability to 'save' or shoot to fame anyone she works with, the most recent example being Seo Taiji and 'Sogyeokdong'. Everyone she's worked with this year including High 4 and Yoon Hyun Sang have been met with remarkable success thanks to her effect.

1. [+4,828, -278] IU's the perfect example of why an idol needs to be a good singer. Fans who only liked her for her face all left after her Eunhyuk scandal and IU was actually able to turn that scandal into an advantage by shedding her little sister image and focusing entirely on her music to get acknowledgement from the public. Her self composed songs like Peach and See You On Friday all became hits and she's now a singer who matches the title artist more than idol. So many veteran musicians look to collaborate with her. Idols who can't sing need to watch IU and reflect over themselves.

2. [+3,236, -187] The article's right, she's an icon of everything...

3. [+2,963, -155] It just means IU's that far ahead when it comes to getting the public's interest

4. [+2,714, -156] IU really seems amazing

5. [+345, -26] I think her success lies in her agency not trying to grab easy money with her. There are a lot of talented idols but their agency only focuses on making quick cash out of them and overworking them in the end which exhausts their image to consumers. They never have any time to slowly build up on their talents. Same case for AkMu with YG. They're doing fine because YG isn't using any money gimmicks with them.

6. [+294, -23] Anyone she duets or features for is pretty much a guaranteed chart sweep with #1 on music shows ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's amazing how she meshes well with seniors and juniors and rookies.

7. [+293, -27] There's really nothing you can criticize her on when it comes to her singing

8. [+245, -12] IU's not one of those stars who shine briefly before disappearing. She's a real singer who I hope lets us listen to her music for a long time to come.


Seungyeon cast in an MBC one-act

1. [+243, -31] f f o w e r c S

2. [+217, -15] She needs to either practice her singing or her acting more. Pick one or the other, not both. Stop blindly chasing after money and spending it all on buying buildings...

3. [+226, -24] Whenever I see Seungyeon, I'm always reminded of that video where she pushes Nicole on stage and glares at her

4. [+188, -26] She has to be the only idol who continues to land roles like this without any improvement in acting

5. [+181, -21] She's the female L... They've both been getting countless drama castings when all they get is hate for their crappy acting each time. Fans are so shameless claiming that they're still working on improving. Since when did dramas become training centers?

6. [+131, -13] She's crazy...

7. [+161, -84] Seungyeon-ah, I'm a fan but I don't want you to act... I feel bad for you...

8. [+72, -13] Who keeps giving her these roles when she's so bad?


A Pink meets with fans for Japanese advancement

Article: 'Japanese advancement' A Pink targets the hearts of Japanese fans in sailor uniforms '20,000 gathered'

Sports Seoul via Nate

1. [+135, -31] A style Japanese otakus would like

2. [+118, -57] They really want that cesium money, huh

3. [+126, -72] Their concept is supposed to be about innocence but they talk about men and dating which defeats the purpose. And putting them in sailor uniforms just serves as material for otakus to imagine them undressing...

4. [+24, -24] Why are people viewing this negatively ㅠㅠ I hope A Pink shows a bright image in Japan too and does well!

5. [+21, -21] Eunji's a great singer and Naeun alone could probably captivate all of the Japanese... Just support them, why view this so negatively ^^;;;;

6. [+17, -14] The uniforms look so cheaply made

7. [+14, -18] A Pink would definitely work over there. Japanese love cute things so I hope they do well.

8. [+11, -14] I think A Pink can be successful in Japan


In the Media: Jessica

Article: Jessica's recent whereabouts with stars... "From Nicole Kidman to Jay Chou"

Source: TV Report via Naver

1. [+18,413, -1,134] Seems like she doesn't care about Korea at all anymore

2. [+16,270, -1,352] She probably thinks she can be considered on the same level of the people she takes pictures with

3. [+14,544, -847] These article titles all sound like she's trying to send a message to certain people like, "I'm doing just fine without you all"~

4. [+14,067, -1,444] She's trying so hard to look like her legs are longer than they are

5. [+5,203, -470] Just because you party with important people doesn't make you important too so don't misunderstanding

6. [+2,317, -88] She has the same hobby as her boyfriend... taking pictures with famous figures and putting it up on SNS

7. [+2,329, -141] I just don't see her doing well

8. [+2,238, -146] Jessica will regret this someday


Source: Nate

1. [+615, -77] Jessica's scandal summarized is basically about an American b*tch coming to Korea to become a star and make money and leaving for the Chinese market now that there's nothing left to milk. She's completely ignoring her Korean fans and media playing all out in China ㅋㅋ I feel bad for all the Korean fans who shielded her all this time with her attitude controversies and scandals with Tyler ㅋㅋ Soon she'll come around and cry about how precious her Korean fans are once she realizes it

2. [+499, -84] Your friends are all at the airport to prepare for their concert while you're out on your own promoting your business ㅋㅋㅋ how could you even think to argue that you could promote with Soshi and run a business at the same time?? Your business is in Hong Kong and New York and you thought your groupmates would be foolish enough to believe that you could promote too? And what kind of a designer is this busy taking so many promotional photos ㅋㅋ

3. [+432, -52] Fans have kept quiet all along since a year ago about Tyler following her around events, tours, fan meets, clubs, and her coming in late whenever there was an American schedule, using different coordis, diferent dorms ^^ Fans knew this would be coming when Tyler Kwon media played about being friends with Jessica.

1. [+10,447, -613] Krystal's suffering in more ways than one

2. [+12,673, -3,324] Now that she's out of SNSD, there's really nothing important about her ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+9,910, -628] How about you say that through a phone call... not on your Weibo.

4. [+7,381, -307] Krystal must be under so much stress. Her relationship with her agency is at risk because of her unni and SM's just working her like a dog with international concerts and drama filmings.

5. [+1,312, -83] Why doesn't she just text her...

6. [+1,277, -64] I really hope Krystal picks a good man for herself

7. [+1,192, -103] Why doesn't Jessica write the message in Korean

8. [+1,098, -59] Poor Krystal having to play to everyone's whims


Article: 'Overwhelming 7' to cover Jessica's leave from SNSD... and attitude issues?

Source: Star News via Naver

1. [+7,635, -853] I hope the show reveals everything... what exactly Jessica did... Being kicked out for being selfish and only thinking of her own benefit and acting like the victim on Weibo..

2. [+5,365, -907] Sica, you need to be sorry to SNSD

3. [+4,655, -982] Jessica is so bad... all she's done is hurt SNSD...

4. [+4,161, -983] I really can't stand Jessica anymore tsk tsk

5. [+681, -81] She's honestly so selfish... She basically ignored SNSD and the company's request for her to prioritize SNSD first before she launches her business and used her fandom for her business in the end. She's still promoting her products on SNS..

6. [+601, -58] When she was under SNSD, fans shielded her attitude issues with nicknames like ice princess and chic... but now she has none of that. What's she going to do??

Yonghwa's head turning airport fashion

Article: Jung Yonghwa's 'shocking jean on jean fashion'

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+350, -13] What he has over his eyes is the most shocking, isn't it?

2. [+215, -17] I'd never wear any of that even if they were all worth over $10,000 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+180, -13] His hair style and sunglasses are more hopeless than his clothes ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+24, -7] Why, I think the look has a feel to it. Our country only likes looks that are standardized.

5. [+14, -4] The clothes are fine but the sunglasses don't match ^^

6. [+11, -3] The outfit looks okay but the sunglasses are an NG ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+10, -0] I would've thought it was weird before but... nowadays, celebrities wear such weird things that I've grown used to it.

8. [+10, -3] Those sunglasses....

9. [+9, -0] He looks like a fly...

10. [+8, -0] I wouldn't wear those sunglasses for free... and what's up with his hair ㅋㅋㅋ
