Article: [Exclusive] 'Tony Ahn girl group' Awesome Baby disbands after a year

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+335, -16] It's better to disband quickly and let the members pursue what they want to do rather than be like YG and steal the best years of their lives doing nothing

2. [+238, -7] It's already so hard beating out the competition just to debut, only to realize that an even bigger competition of survival awaits after that debut

3. [+205, -9] They must be in a lot of debt then. It costs so much for one trainee. It's good that they ended it before it got worse. But their concept was an a capella beatbox beatpella concept? No wonder they flopped

4. [+21, -5] Never knew they existed until today... did they even try to promote them?

5. [+14, -7] Girl groups that disband have it a bit easier since they can just get married later and depend on their husband... male groups that flop only know how to sing as a profession which obviously won't pay the bills for them anymore and their marriage prospects are dim..

6. [+13, -1] Never knew they debuted...

7. [+12,- 5] Didn't he have a boy group too? That boy group disappeared like this too..

8. [+11, -3] This is why trainees want to get into the bigger agencies. At least 50% of your success is secured as long as you get to debut.

9. [+4, -2] Their visuals seem alright though

10. [+4, -2] Ah ㅠㅠ their a capella was alright...

'SNL Korea' under another controversy for breast cancer gag


Article: 'SNL 8' under another controversy for making fun of Um Aeng Ran 'criticisms galore'

Source: Newsen via Nate

Gagwoman Jung Iran plays a caricature of actress Um Aeng Ran who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had to halt her career to get surgery removing one half of her chest. During her skit on a song talking about "grabbing one's chest" emotionally, she said, "I don't have a chest to grab" in Um Aeng Ran's voice.

1. [+2,292, -37] They're the absolute worst

2. [+2,143, -32] They're really driving the pain home for Um Aeng Ran. What they think they're doing for laughs will be an unforgettable pain for another.

3. [+1,886, -32] Wow... even words of hatred aren't enough for them

4. [+123, -3] Wow.. I personally hope Um Aeng Ran never finds out about this.. It'd be so upsetting for her to find out ㅠㅠ

5. [+117, -2] I was diagnosed with breast cancer as well. This is so shocking... this is a joke gone too far.

6. [+102, -2] Yeah, this is just wrong...

7. [+101, -2] SNL... the crew is so cruel. Is it just who they are as people? How could you call this a gag... so cruel...

8. [+94, -2] Enough is enough, take the show off air. You cannot use another person's pain as a joke like this.

1. [+324, -6] SNL is too cowardly to satirize actual issues in our society and instead go about hurting the minorities... Eric Nam was asked to parody Gandhi and Hong Suk Chun and he refused to do both because he said it was wrong.

2. [+300, -8] When Eric Nam was on SNL, he was asked to do a skit involving a curry concept about India as a caricature of Gandhi of sorts and he said that he refused to do a caricature of an important figure who represents another country. Considering that Indians still take their shoes off when entering Gandhi's historic sites, imagine if Eric Nam had acutally gone through with the parody, we'd be in a mess... ; He also refused to do Hong Suk Chun because he said it would be turning sexual minorities into a caricature. I doubt the staff understood why he was saying those things, they really need some basic respect.

3. [+233, -1] It's just the true character of the producers and the cast being revealed

4. [+22, -1] My aunt had to surgically remove her chest because of breast cancer and as someone who personally knows the pain and suffering that that involves, SNL has really crossed the line this time. What were they thinking? Not one person said this was a bad idea in a team meeting?

5. [+15, -0] What a disappointment

Article: 'SNL' apologizes for breast cancer controversy, "We weren't careful enough"

Source: E-Daily via Naver

1. [+8,477, -351] Sigh, take this show off air... are they trying to copy Park Geun Hye now?

2. [+5,468, -168] Enough is enough, take the show off air and fire all of them

3. [+5,274, -138] Yeah, this show's headed to the trash, good job

4. [+5,066, -105] Are they insane? Do they not know where the line is?

5. [+1,152, -10] It's been barely a week since their sexual harassment scandal and another controversy already? They should know to be even more careful with their script after the first time, what were they thinking?

6. [+1,007, -14] I feel so bad for her, imagine how much harder it must be for her to have her pain be used as a laughing matter

7. [+920, -9] They thought this was appropriate after apologizing? They're insane

8. [+726, -7] Are they joking? Do they not have a basic sense of respect?

1. [+300, -16] Kim Heechul looks handsome and Somi looks pretty ㅋㅋㅋ what a cute two shot

2. [+217, -14] They barely look like there's a 10 year age gap

3. [+14, -0] An 18 year age gap, she could practically be his daughter ㅋㅋ but they look more like oppa and dongsaeng here

4. [+13, -8] They match well

5. [+11, -3] Kim Heechul has a few pictures with Choi Soon Shil's niece... they must be close, eh?

6. [+10, -7] Both pretty ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+8, -5] I feel like Jun Somi has been exposed to the broadcast environment too much... she was totally looking down on Kim Young Chul.. something about her's just off putting..

8. [+8, -7] Well Jun Somi looks super old for her age whereas Kim Heechul looks super young for his age..

9. [+7, -1] Why does he never age?

10. [+7, -0] Wow, he looks so young ㅋ I can barely tell there's an 18 year age gap

11. [+7, -3] Somi only looks older than her age because she's wearing a lot of make up

12. [+5, -8] Kim Heechul's reaching that ajusshi age now, I wish he'd change his hair style and dress more appropriately for his age...

Jun Hye Bin spots Leonardo DiCaprio and has a fangirl moment


Article: Jun Hye Bin bumps into Leonardo DiCaprio in America "Please let me go on taking a picture without permission"

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+1,004, -16] I guess even celebrities are like the rest of us when they go overseas and bump into other celebrities ㅋ

2. [+901, -51] She probably knows how the rest of us feel since she's a celebrity ㅎ It's cute that she didn't want to bother him for an actual photo

3. [+619, -65] That's exactly like when the rest of us bump into a celebrity ㅋㅋ I've taken a lot of these photos too with Korean stars ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+41, -7] Cute ㅋㅋㅋ she didn't want to bother him ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+18, -2] Even though it's a rushed shot, she still looks pretty ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+9, -5] I wonder if Leonardo would think she's pretty? I bet someone of her beauty could even make him look back once more ^^

7. [+9, -1] Wow her skin's amazing

8. [+8, -2] I couldn't tell it was him from the photo;;

9. [+6, -4] He looks like some hobo you see around your neighborhood, is that really him? ㅋ

10. [+6, -1] Thought she had a unique earring on but it was someone's foot ㅋㅋㅋ

Choa vouches for Moon Hee Jun's good character


Article: Choa, "Moon Hee Jun's a good person, he was nice to me when AOA wasn't doing well"

Source: Mydaily via Nate

1. [+405, -95] And I guess Soyul was the one who fell for him out of all the idols he was being nice to

2. [+341, -127] So he cast his fishing pole out to several different idols and Soyul was the one that caught

3. [+305, -139] He wanted to make something happen with you

4. [+58, -9] Women are highly sensitive people, I think she would know if he was trying to hit on her or not. It's easy for women to think that they're being hit on if a man is being too nice to them but she explicitly says that he was being nice. If he was hitting on her, do you think she would even be bringing this up before his wedding? If he did hit on her and she wanted to screw him over, she would've phrased it differently like, "Why were you so nice to me back then?"

5. [+39, -7] Wow, the best replies have it so twisted... I came in to the article thinking Moon Hee Jun must be such a nice friend. Why is it that a man can't be nice to a woman without it being considered hitting on her?

6. [+24, -11] Damn, some people are really twisted

7. [+20, -22] Guess he wanted to hit on Choa first

8. [+17, -3] We all know this hyung is a good person inside and out, why would he have tried to hit on her. He's just a nice person, you idiots.

9. [+14, -3] Why are people automatically assuming he tried to hit on her just because he was nice to her?

10. [+14, -4] The top 3 best replies need to stop being hermits and go out and see what people in the real world are like
