History of Korea's flower boys

Article: The history of Korea's flower boys who've shaken the hearts of women

: News 24 via Naver

Goes through all of the male stars who've been named flower boys in entertainment history starting with the 60s~80s with names like Shin Sung Il, Nam Goong Won, Lee Young Ha, Han Jin Hee, and Im Sung Min.

From 90s to current, it listsJang Dong Gun, Bae Yong Jun, Lee Min Ho, Kim Soo Hyun, and Kim Woo Bin.

1. [+1,102, -44] Kim Woo Bin is not a flower boy. He looks handsome overall but his face alone doesn't stand a chance against the other celebrities he's listed with.

2. [+918, -37] I'd say Jang Dong Gun, Jung Woo Sung, Won Bin, Go Soo, Kang Dong Won, Jo In Sung, and Hyun Bin.

3. [+716, -116] The current one top for me personally is Won Bin

4. [+588, -37] The true flower boys from the 90s are Jang Dong Gun, Jung Woo Sung, Lee Jung Jae, Won Bin, and Song Seung Hun. Hyun Bin can barely be added to the list... All of the stars born in the 80s aren't traditionally handsome but likable.

5. [+119, -9] I think opinions are divided on Kim Woo Bin. He looks weird to me personally...

6. [+117, -13] Kim Woo Bin looks like a dinosaur. And Kim Soo Hyun a flower boy? As if.

7. [+105, -21] How are Kim Woo Bin and Kim Soo Hyun flower boys ㅋㅋ They're lucky they made it into the right generation. In the past, their faces would've only been used for supporting roles ㅋㅋ

8. [+78, -7] Won Bin and Song Seung Hun outrank all of them. Kim Woo Bin doesn't even deserve to be on the list. He's just tall and his face is a niche style that only a certain group of people like. Hyun Bin is also not traditionally handsome.

9. [+73, -7] Kim Soo Hyun is not a flower boy... he's just likeable looking.

10. [+72, -7] Kim Woo Bin, Kim Soo Hyun, and Lee Min Ho are not flower boys. They have looks that only specific people are into.

Upcoming girl group debuts: YG girl group, SONAMOO (TS Entertainment), Baby KARA (DSP)

1. [+6,016, -57] Can't believe there are still groups left to pour out.....

2. [+4,602, -319] This is still too many. And yet we still don't have a 2nd SNSD. None of the new groups have come close to SISTAR, Girl's Day, A Pink, or AOA.

3. [+3,386, -104] They all look the same...

4. [+3,188, -672] I'm not even looking forward to YG's girl group anymore...

5. [+2,500, -430] Tried to check out just how good Baby KARA trainees were but I saw them lip syncing on their evaluation stage and changed the channel immediately ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+666, -14] Is YG finally unleashing their YG SNSD after media playing about it for four years ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+439, -13] Sure, put on a short skirt and reveal some cleavage and anyone's a girl group nowadays

8. [+378, -15] There's been an outpour every year. The only difference is who shows more skin or shakes more ass.

TV Report via Naver

1. [+396, -8] They can't run because of the crowd ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+388, -11] This is why Kim Tae Hee, Song Hye Gyo, and Jun Ji Hyun are all over in China promoting. Look at the difference in scale with just a variety shooting alone.

3. [+340, -10] Wow, China just starts all numbers in the tens of thousands right off the bat..

4. [+211, -8] Looks like they're shooting a movie.. wow..

5. [+33, -7] You can sell in China in a day what would take you a year to sell in Korea

6. [+25, -3] I hope none of them step up on vents to see the celebrities

7. [+21, -2] I hope the Korean PD doesn't get thrown out after helping out with the Chinese variety industry

8. [+16, -3] 10,000 isn't actually a lot in China


Jo In Sung attends EXO's Japanese concert to show support for DO

1. [+364, -13] Why do Japanese fans get all the glory

2. [+232, -26] Jo In Sung seems to really think highly of loyalty... and that's what I'd call real loyalty. Anyone who ignores their friends and juniors just for being more popular is trash.

3. [+58, -9] Good to see :) Loyal Jo In Sung

4. [+13, -6] DO looks handsome here

5. [+10, -6] So loyal of Jo In Sung ㅎㅎ DO's quite handsome himself too ㅎㅎ Fighting to the both of them

6. [+8, -4] See both EXO and Jo In Sung~ Lucky fans~


Lee Guk Joo models for 'W Korea'

Article: "Quite the S line~"... Lee Guk Joo shows unexpected sexy beauty

Source: Dispatch via Nate

1. [+437, -52] I find this pictorial positive just for the message it's sending. It shows that there are a variety of types of women's bodies. The world isn't only full of stick skinny women... This pictorial is nothing to praise or put down.

2. [+229, -29] Lee Guk Joo-ssi has said that she likes the way she is now. What's wrong with loving yourself as long as there are no health issues? And she's a celebrity who got popular off of this specific image so if she loses weight, people will obviously say she's lost what made her pop. She's a gagwoman anyway, not a model... don't click if you don't want to see her. You know that you're going to keep hating her if she gets hurt over your comments and gets plastic surgery to fix it. Our country is so judgmental on physical beauty. Let's just respect one another and be more understanding;

3. [+211, -29] I know it's hard to understand someone else on a deep level but I don't think it's right to judge them just based off of their outer appearance... Lee Guk Joo-ssi's beautiful but I do think she should lose a bit of weight for the sake of her health~ ^^!!

4. [+28, -14] This is... so wrong..

5. [+19, -13] Who cares if she's fat or skinny? Why are you trying to judge her happiness as a woman based on your own standards? I even heard there was a younger man who followed her around because he liked her. Lee Guk Joo would never date any of you;;; please stop leaving hateful comments on overweight people.

6. [+16, -14] Seriously!! I don't hate Lee Guk Joo or anything but stuff like this is so hard to watch. Stop it already.

7. [+14, -12] Ughhhh, I feel like barfing. It's gross..

8. [+14, -11] Wow, this looks so wrong. Please don't call her charming or anything because she's not.

9. [+13, -9] I'm not putting her down but I don't think showing off a body that makes people uncomfortable is anything to be proud of... She seems to think her popularity can cover anything ㅠㅠ

10. [+12, -1] I find it refreshing and amazing that she's confident enough to reveal herself like this... but please, let's not call this sexy. It's not sexy.
