Article talks about how music agencies are branching into acting with companies like SM, YG, JYP, Starship, FNC, and TS signing actors and training their own acting talents.

1. [+3,261, -219] SM really needs to train their idols better before putting them into acting

2. [+2,664, -90] YG, please just focus on your singers... It's great that you're broadening your company but you have to at least do your jobs in your main area first

3. [+2,383, -55] JYP: We are now at an age where your CEO releases albums

4. [+2,339, -309] SM should not be allowed into acting at all. They take their untalented idols and stick them into movies and dramas, causing them all to fail. SM is like the cockroach that is dropping the quality of Korea's art culture.

5. [+1,211, -52] Please branch into acting after you've made some decent songs...

6. [+386, -46] Does SM not have any acting teachers? All of their idols suck

7. [+250, -25] It's best for singers to be trained by music agencies and actors to be trained by acting agencies. Look at SM as an example of what happens.

8. [+230, -19] FNC needs to stop being greedy

9. [+132, -13] SM comes up with the best singers but their drama production and acting skills are just...

10. [+102, -6] SM trained Lee Yeon Hee as an actress and she's so bad...

11. [+90, -9] Why can't these companies just train actors like they train idols instead of turning idols into actors... there's a drastic difference between a face meant for acting and a face meant for idols.

12. [+90, -10] YG only got as big as they are by selling idols but now they don't care about their idols at all. They haven't come up with a group to take Big Bang's place yet and aren't even managing Big Bang properly at that.

Article: [Exclusive] SECRET Song Jieun to make solo comeback after 2 years... comeback confirmed for September

Source: X Sports News via Naver

1. [+791, -30] Show your digital power once again like 'Crazy'!!!

2. [+633, -26] SECRET was doing so well just until a few years ago...

3. [+561, -26] Ooooh, I really liked '25' too

4. [+417, -29] From 'Crazy' to her drama OSTS, she's a really good singer... do well Song Jieun!!

5. [+252, -43] She's good at both acting and singing

6. [+54, -1] SECRET's pretty much over, just haven't had an official disbandment yet. They haven't released an album in two years, isn't it obvious? Jun Hyosung keeps releasing solos, Han Sunhwa is avoiding varieties because she thinks she's an actress... poor Jung Hana

7. [+41, -1] SECRET's contracts expire this October but what they're releasing is not a SECRET album but Song Jieun's solo

8. [+58, -8] She seems the nicest out of SECRET

9. [+49, -7] She has such a great vocal tone ㅜㅜㅜ can't wait for her new song

10. [+31, -3] ㅋㅋㅋ Will her next song be '27'?

Kim Sook: "You were Jessica and Sulli's vocal trainer. Aren't you close with them? Who do you think is the biggest lover out of the two?"
Dana: "Jessica. She's devoted to love and is really considerate of the other person."

1. [+480, -74] Lovers... one b*tch has lost her mind over Choiza and is prancing around like a clown in her underwear while another b*tch has lost her mind to Tyler Kwon and smiling in China despite her ice princess image in Korea. Same goes for her sister... they're not "crazy in love", they're just "crazy"

2. [+405, -43] They both do seem like big lovers considering they both left their groups over a man but it just seems like they're short on thought to me ㅋㅋ wouldn't have hurt to milk it out for a while longer before leaving for their loves... all for love, but what is love anyway..

3. [+348, -44] Yeah well the public agrees that both are unlikable!

4. [+43, -5] The best lover? What about IU who visits the sick

5. [+37, -8] One thing they both also have in common is that they handled their love scandals horribly, especially Jessica

6. [+7, -2] Yeah, Jessica was such a big lover that she threw her friends of years away for her love...

7. [+5, -5] It might be betrayal to one and pain to another but they chose to live their own life and go down their own path, who are we to say anything about that?

Article: "The true sexy back"... Fei's sexy beauty

Source: Mydaily via Nate

1. [+455, -32] She still didn't leave Korea yet? Please go back to China, we don't want to deal with petty people like you

2. [+397, -17] Why oh why did she have to say something so unnecessary

3. [+327, -15] Nevermind this sexy back, go back to China

4. [+25, -7] Not like she's popular anyway, she should go back to China too

5. [+19, -2] Send her back to China. Hwang Chi Yeol was edited out of Chinese shows, we should give Chinese stars the same treatment here.

6. [+14, -0] Korean stars are being edited out or taken off of Chinese shows right now, please get rid of these ch*nks from our TV shows too ㅡㅡ

7. [+13, -0] Go back to China

8. [+11, -0] Have Fei, Cao Lu, Victoria, and Lay still not screwed off back to China? I'm so sick of these ch*nks

9. [+10, -1] After Jia left, so many people were supporting Fei... but all in one moment, that's crumbled....

Zico confesses how he fell for Seolhyun on 'Radio Star'



Article: 'Radio Star' Zico, "I took a liking to Seolhyun without reason, I didn't play hard to get with her" confession

Source: Naver

1. [+5,494, -120] The image of Seolhyun running into his apartment caught more attention than the fact that they were dating

2. [+4,649, -234] Then why couldn't you ever drive her or pick her up? Why are you always sitting in your house and calling her to you by phone? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ You made your girlfriend look so cheap by having her run to you like that ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+3,979, -113] As with all public relationships, the female side has more to lose

4. [+3,737, -249] Come on Zico, as a man you shouldn't be having your woman running around like that, get your car and drive her home

5. [+650, -34] Their pictures really were the least romantic out of all the recent dating scandals. Other male celebrities looked really considerate of their girlfriends in their pictures.

6. [+615, -24] Their dating scandal just makes me feel bad for Seolhyun... and really cheap too... all I remember is her running into his house.

7. [+595, -57] Zico, don't you think it looks better for the man to go pick up his woman than having the woman run to him like that? You're the one who cheapened your own girlfriend's image

8. [+428, -17] ㅋㅋㅋ He admits they're dating right away on the show

9. [+477, -34] I don't think they'll last long.. the way he was talking about her, he looked as if he knew everything there already was to know and nothing was exciting about her anymore

10. [+367, -11] I don't believe that he fell for her "without reason".. He said that he's into girls who have thick thighs, no thigh gap, and are glamorous. He obviously fell for her for her body.

11. [+386, -21] They're right, he should've picked her up and dropped her off.. I felt so bad looking at her run around like that. Poor Seolhyun... got so much more hate.

12. [+319, -12] You have a car, drive her home next time

13. [+369, -33] The reason Seolhyun's image as a celebrity is over is that the mystery factor is gone, not because she's dating. Pictures of her running into a man's house in a short dress - there's no mystery there. I doubt it would've been this bad if she walked in wearing pants.

14. [+366, -44] Zico-ya, did you order delivery again? Having a woman run to you like that.. tsk tsk. You better go to Seolhyun's house next time.

15. [+339, -35] Look at Seolhyun's body, I highly doubt Zico fell for her for no reason. Just be honest and say you fell for her because she's beautiful.

1. [+345, -17] Then why didn't you confirm the relationship when it first broke out?

2. [+257, -17] Still can't forget that he said he was "robbed" of his life that day... He really wasn't considerate of her at all when he said that

3. [+197, -10] Seolhyun has such a bad eye for men

4. [+30, -3] This ba$tard was too coward to even call her his woman at first ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+28, -0] I don't know why I get this impression but I have a feeling Zico just sees her as a passing relationship and nothing serious

6. [+21, -4] My father's 55 and even he thinks Seolhyun could do better

7. [+18, -0] Zico, you seem like the type who has to watch his mouth

8. [+13, -4] Seolhyun must have no pride

1. [+422, -38] Yeah, you're a coward. Don't cry when Seolhyun ends up dumping you. And don't you dare use your story of being dumped in your lyrics.

2. [+391, -28] He tried to pump and dump her but failed and now he's trying to glamorize the story ㅋㅋ

3. [+321, -26] I used to think Zico could do better but not anymore...

4. [+31, -9] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Seolhyun used to get so much hate from women but now they all feel bad for her ㅋㅋㅋㅋ She lucked out with her boyfriend, all her antis are gone now

5. [+23, -5] Coward...
