1. Ms. Temper and Nam Jung Gi
2. 38 Revenue Collection Unit
3. Age of Youth
4. Fantastic
5. Drinking Solo
6. My Wife's Having an Affair this Week


1. [+4,840, -129] 'Ms. Temper' is super funny ㅋㅋ I've actually seen all the dramas on this list and they're all fun ㅋㅋ

2. [+4,505, -181] Make sure you guys watch 'Age of Youth' and 'My Wife's Having...' !! They're the best dramas I've seen in my life. I recommend any married-couples-to-be to watch the second one, there's a lot to learn from it.

3. [+3,975, -126] Viewer ratings are obviously important but we shouldn't consider dramas a failure just because it got low ratings. Sometimes dramas with high viewer ratings aren't that good either.

4. [+2,921, -88] 'Drinking Solo' and 'Ms. Temper' had low viewer ratings but they were still talked about a lot...

5. [+2,346, -83] All of the dramas listed here are good!! ㅋㅋㅋ I think I've seen them all except one...

6. [+377, -21] 'Ms. Temper' is hilarious! ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+396, -28] '38 Revenue Collection Unit' holds the highest viewer rating for OCN. It's also a drama that's been recognized overseas and the director even won an award!! It's an amazing drama

8. [+362, -21] 'Age of Youth' is awesome... characters that you can picture in your own life, episodes, the script - it's all good. I always used to think the flashier the drama the better but 'Age of Youth' made me see that sometimes you just want something to relate to. One of the best dramas of my life.

9. [+338, -23] 'Age of Youth' I agree with. There's no one in the cast who's famous enough so I don't think the drama got much promotion but it's so realistic and hits close to heart.

10. [+288, -15] 'Drinking Solo' was a low expense, high income drama.. and it definitely didn't get low viewer ratings

1 [+4,162, -159] Whenever I see things like this, I get tearful and feel bad too but it's hard to do anything more than that. You can't just be sad about it forever. My own life makes me tear up too ㅠ ㅋㅋ

2. [+2,954, -100] I want to go do volunteer work too but my own life is hard enough

3. [+2,072, -78] Her heart's as pretty as her face

4. [+1,913, -53] Makes me reflect for feeling stressed over the little things

5. [+1,271, -21] Poor kids... sigh

6. [+156, -6] It's hard to actually make the decision to go volunteer somewhere like that... what a kind heart. Hopefully she does a lot of great things before she comes back.

7. [+154, -8] Hopefully one day we'll see a day where everyone lives happily ㅜ

8. [+146, -9] I feel bad when I see things like this and then I feel bad for myself for having to eat lunch out of a lunch box from the convenience store


Irene criticized for uninterested attitude on 'Radio Star'?

1. [+677, -36] Come on... if she doesn't know how to talk on her own, then at least answer the questions the seniors are asking you;;; she didn't even seem like she wanted to be there..

2. [+653, -30] The power of SM... getting Irene slots on all these variety shows when it's clear that she's not putting forth any effort and lacks any talking talent at all.. imagine all the girl groups who desperately want opportunities like this..

3. [+331, -15] Irene-ssi... whether or not you're good at talk shows doesn't matter, if you landed a guest slot, then at least look like you're putting in some effort...

4. [+105, -7] It's always those who desperately want opportunities like this that never get them. What is Irene doing? As if she deserves this opportunity at all? ㅋ Please at least act like you're trying... it looks like they just cast some dim-witted kid who has no drive at all

5. [+92, -2] I don't want to see her on varieties anymore

6. [+88, -3] The least she could do was show that she was interested... It made me nervous whenever the camera panned to her. Isn't she being paid to be on the show??

7. [+87, -8] I really have to wonder how much she was paid for basically doing nothing on the show

8. [+78, -21] She thinks she can just sit there and get away with it? ㅋㅋ She obviously knows that SM and her pretty looks will cover up anything for her

9. [+73, -5] SM-ah... stop putting your idols on shows that don't match their personalities, it's only getting them hate

10. [+66, -17] Please don't come out on varieties again. So boring, doesn't even respond to others when they're talking.. how did she become a celebrity? She's in a job that is dependent on being loved by the public to get paid and she doesn't even put in any effort on the show. It's not even that she doesn't have variety skills, she just plain doesn't have the drive to put in effort.

11. [+62, -3] Why should the public care if she's shy? That's her problem. If she's on the show to make money, then she needs to deliver. She looks like she doesn't even care that this is her job.

12. [+56, -3] I started off the show thinking Irene will probably not get much screentime because of the other guests and started to feel bad for her but when she actually got screentime and opportunities to talk, I began to wonder why she bothered guesting on the show at all. She has no talent, nothing at all.. did she insist on being on the show or did SM force her on it? She might as well have sat out.

13. [+54, -3] She really did look uninterested the whole time ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

14. [+51, -3] If SM was going to have anyone on the show, it should've been Joy or Wendy or Yeri. The three have some variety skills judging from 'Knowing Bros'... Irene is pretty but variety is definitely not for her. Irene's a fixed member on 'Laundry Day' but Joy outshone her as the guest. After the reactions to this 'Radio Star', I doubt SM will put Irene on another talk show again...

15. [+50, -3] If you're being paid to do a job, at least pretend you're trying. There are seniors much older than you who are doing their best to entertain viewers, what're you even there for??? Don't come back on varieties again tsk tsk

16. [+48, -1] I felt it when she was on 'Knowing Bros', she really doesn't even have 1% of any variety talents. To make matters worse, her attitude was so arrogant today. Does she think she's popular enough to get away with that kind of attitude now? There are a ton of people dying for opportunities like this, how is she not grateful? What's up with the attitude? Tell your company you don't want to do it if you don't want to.

17. [+46, -6] Irene's going to need another member with her if she goes on another show like this... she's too introverted

18. [+43, -19] She's like the second Krystal... pretty, good dancer, so you want to keep her in the group, but doesn't put forth even an ounce of effort on TV shows..

1. [+507, -31] Burst out laughing at Seo Yuri, Moon Hee Jun, and Tony ㅋㅋㅋ Irene needs to reflect a bit

2. [+463, -44] Who is this Irene or whatever kid? She looks like she's missing a few screws in her head

3. [+420, -31] Moon Hee Jun and Seo Yuri are so funny. Irene, however... knowing that there are a long list of celebrities dying for an opportunity on a public broadcast variety like this needs to show at least a bit of effort for the opportunity she was given. Being introverted is not an excuse. You can still show effort as an introvert, but she didn't have any drive at all. Why was she on the show?

4. [+61, -8] Whoever that nugu Irene rookie is, if she's getting paid to be on the show, she better shape up and start doing her job. She doesn't look like she's anything special to be able to get away with just sitting there doing nothing. She would've been fired if this was any other job. Learn from how hard your seniors are working. What were they thinking sitting a kid like her down on that seat?

5. [+37, -2] I don't know why SM bothers with putting Irene on variety shows and wasting casting money. She's already shown on multiple varieties that she's an introverted personality. Even after all the effort 'Knowing Bros' put in her, she still failed... She's popular enough that she doesn't need variety shows like this anymore. Why force it? Such a disgusting waste of money


Chanel hooks GD up with lavish hotel stay

Source: Joongang Ilbo via Nate

1. [+2,409, -105] 'Infinity Challenge' is really the only show that abuses GD around~~ ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1,907, -95] For all this respect he gets, he acts like such a ditz on 'Infinity Challenge'.. ㅋㅋ

3. [+1,400, -120] The point here is that his worth is being recognized..

4. [+93, -7] Wouldn't say the same for his image in Korea but it's good to see someone from our country getting VVIP treatment from a world-renowned brand like this

5. [+80, -6] Such a special guy... his influence around Asia must really be huge

6. [+65, -7] Even gets proper respect in Europe, amazing

7. [+55, -12] Shouldn't we be proud that a Korean celebrity is getting treatment like this...? I bet if any of the hate commenters switched bodies with GD for one day, they wouldn't want to go back to their own lives... Just praise someone for the good things they're doing instead of leaving hate.

8. [+45, -4] Chanel's bags cost more than that hotel stay... and imagine how many bags they sell in a day ㅋ

9. [+36, -7] GD's quite popular in Europe. I wish our K-Pop stars would start focusing on building their popularity in Europe or America instead of Asia

10. [+32, -10] Makes his haters look pathetic

11. [+28, -4] He must've been such a good person in his past life... how is his life this good

12. [+26, -3] Chanel obviously sees investment value in GD so they give him the treatment and respect they think he deserves... like the best replies say, it's only 'Infinity Challenge' that has their way with him ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+758, -26] Huh?????????? Did she upload the wrong picture?? She looks so weird in this why would she upload it on SNS;;;;;;;;;

2. [+778, -127] What is this piggy ajumma doing on my screen;;

3. [+592, -18] Jung Bong-ah ㅠ

4. [+54, -2] Meanwhile YG's going around telling girls to lose weight while judging on a show... manage your own artist...

5. [+47, -2] ??? This is not the Lee Hi that I know

6. [+41, -1] She looks like a woman who's 8 months pregnant... so chubby ㅋ

7. [+40, -1] What the ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ the picture shocked me

8. [+29, -1] She looks like Jo Jung Rin...

9. [+29, -3] If you remember back to her K-Pop Star days when she first auditioned, she had this exact face ㅋㅋㅋㅋ it's just all the make up and weight loss that made her look different

10. [+29, -2] Why'd she gain so much weight while on hiatus...

11. [+26, -0] She looks like an ajumma who just gave birth.. ㅠㅠ

12. [+20, -1] What's up with her face?;; I get that she's bare faced but her face looks like it's gained a ton of weight;;; that nose... Korea must have some superb make up skills =_=..

13. [+20, -1] Too blinded by greed to show off her good skin that she didn't realize how bad her actual face looked...
