'K-Pop Star 4' winner Katie Kim leaves YG


Article: [Exclusive] K-Pop Star 4 winner Katie Kim parts ways with YG... currently preparing to debut

Source: Sports Seoul via Nate

1. [+563, -8] What YG's doing is a scam, isn't it?

2. [+512, -6] They threw out 'Mix Nine' and now that 'K-Pop Star' isn't getting viewer ratings or media attention, they're throwing her out too ㅋㅋㅋ the company's a thug

3. [+431, -4] Remember Jang Hanna from 'KPop Star' and Kim Eunbi from 'Superstar K' were cast as YG trainees and left too...

4. [+56, -0] Reminds me of how Supearls were eliminated from 'K-Pop Star' and Yang Hyun Suk said he was going to take care of them all and then threw them all out in the end ㅋㅋㅋ what a scary man~

5. [+50, -2] YG needs to be like SM and not take these kids at all if they're not going to do anything... SM never ended up taking any of the contestants because they wanted to focus on their own trainees first

6. [+44, -1] If the point of the show is to take the winner and debut them, shouldn't YG have debuted her first??? Keep your promises, man..

7. [+37, -0] I thought the rule was that the winner got to release an album right away?

8. [+36, -0] When is YG's bubble going to pop? How much longer are they going to milk Big Bang and 2NE1?

9. [+32, -0] This is bad. YG's so disappointing lately, this is so irresponsible of them.

10. [+28, -0] Yang Hyun Suk's the type who likes getting attention for judging others on these shows but doesn't want to take responsibility for them

1. [+240, -2] YG betrayed 'Mix Nine' by not debuting them.. now what's this... Katie Kim couldn't debut for three years..

2. [+177, -2] The whole point of winning 'K-Pop Star' is that they get their debut album produced... wasn't she scammed then?

3. [+118, -8] YG collects trainees like they collect figurines. They don't want to miss out on talented kids by letting them go to other agencies so they hold them down and waste their youth and then throw them out when they're too old or debut when it's too late. How many have they done that to? Please stop making promises you can't keep.

4. [+43, -2] Yang Hyuk Suk, wow...

5. [+33, -1] She wasted the golden years of her youth without a debut album... how is YG going to compensate for that?!

Dasom reveals her hobby to be stock trading


Article: 'I Live Alone' Dasom, "My hobby is trading stocks.. I follow Warren Buffet's philosophy"

Source: Starin via Nate

1. [+482, -26] You can learn a lot from stock trading if you trade enough where you won't go into debt and it won't affect your finances if you lose money. It helps you learn about the state of the economy and forces you to keep up with the news. I think it's a great area of study for young people.

2. [+295, -112] Real fans know that Dasom is a deep person. She reads a lot of literature and wonders about different things...

3. [+235, -123] Another fool to part with their money~

4. [+35, -4] Warren Buffet doesn't invest in stocks by watching graphs like that. He's all about the long term.

5. [+27, -4] It's fine if you do it like her by studying up and investing your own money... It's always the people who easily follow the words of others like "that stock is going to go up" and blindly invest all their money into it who are the problem.

6. [+26, -2] Why do I feel like she's faking it ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+18, -2] A great hobby for you to end up bankrupt on the streets

8. [+15, -4] Warren Buffet does not rely on charts like that ㅋㅋㅋ he's all about studying the long term potential of companies and CEOs

9. [+10, -0] Trading stocks is a lot like lending money to a friend. You should only do it if you're fine with never getting that money back ㅋㅋ

10. [+10, -5] I think it's fine for celebrities to look into other hobbies and industries since their income is so unstable. My friend bought some bitcoin in its early days and made a ton of money.

The alluring world of YouTubers and live streamers


Article: YouTubers and BJs... only the 1% shine, what's reality like for the other 99%?

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

1. [+613, -20] It's the same for celebrities and singers though. Only the top 1% shine and make all the money while the rest of the 90% make an average salary. Isn't that the same for any industry? It's not specific to YouTubers and BJs ㅋ

2. [+573, -20] I think it needs to be regulated... so many chodings are copying BJs and all kids have cellphones these days. It's so easy to copy what the BJs are doing.

3. [+536, -274] It's so easy for women to show a bit of skin and dance or sing a song and make over $5,000 a month ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+56, -5] It's about the time where we need to start regulating it. There are streamers who swear after every word and purposely put out provocative content to bring in viewers and donations. It's hard for chodings and younger kids to filter all this, and they end up copying whatever the BJs are doing...

5. [+20, -0] I honestly think this is a serious issue. The most popular career that chodings dream of nowadays is to become a BJ or YouTuber. They all have this fantasy that they can play computer games and make easy money. I hear co-workers talk about their kids and how when they go home, they're all sitting in front of the computer playing games or doing mukbangs...

6. [+14, -1] Regulate it by restricting the amount of donations every single person can give in a single day to $10

7. [+11, -3] There do need to be some laws for it. There's just too much provocative content out there.

8. [+6, -0] A compromise does need to be reached. I don't think it's fair to argue that you should be free to put out whatever content you want as long as it doesn't affect others or as long as it's fun. There are young kids who watch these streams and are exposed to all sorts of offensive content. I've seen some argue that streams are no different from movies or dramas but at least kids go into movies knowing that it's fiction whereas live streams are totally real life. I agree that you should be free to put out the content that you want but there needs to be limits.

Model Han Hyun Min's secret to his 189 cm height is ramen?


Article: 189 cm Han Hyun Min "I grew tall eating ramen"

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+215, -5] Just proves that it doesn't matter how hard you try to grow taller, it's all in your genes... Normally if you eat ramen like that, you're supposed to grow horizontally, not vertically... lucky him..

2. [+128, -2] Height depends on genes so it doesn't really matter what you eat during your growth spurt. Those with the tall genes will keep getting taller while those without will grow out the sides..

3. [+116, -9] I like seeing him

4. [+15, -1] Height and skin are all about your genes

5. [+12, -0] Yup, height is something you're born with

6. [+10, -0] He didn't grow taller by eating ramen, he was already born with the tall and skinny genes ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+10, -0] Yup, height is genes so stop trying so hard guys

8. [+9, -0] ㅋㅋ Height is purely genes. You could have a guy stay up all night playing games and barely eating and he'll still grow up tall if he has the genes for it ㅋㅋ

9. [+7, -2] I heard that food is responsible for only about 10 cm of your total height. A person with 160 cm genes can grow taller up to 170 cm with the right food but they'll never grow to be 180 cm if it isn't in their genes.

10. [+6, -0] Height are genes

Daesung revealed to have been temporarily hospitalized during service


Article: [Exclusive] Big Bang Daesung hospitalized during army service... reason not given

Source: Sports Kyunghyang via Nate

1. [+1,706, -144] It's hard to call this a coincidence when GD was hospitalized too

2. [+1,375, -107] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1,011, -147] Whatever the reason, I hope he gets better soon and completes his service healthily

4. [+104, -12] He's framing the picture for a medical discharge

5. [+94, -11] Seems like he's trying to measure out the timing?

6. [+87, -13] YG, seriously.. do they think netizens are fools? I knew stuff like this was already calculated in when they said they were going to enlist active duty.. from GD to Daesung now..

7. [+79, -7] This is so obvious...

8. [+72, -4] Celebrities = disabled

9. [+67, -5] Laughable ㅋㅋ

10. [+50, -6] As if the army is harder than those concerts they do for money. How can they have the energy for all those concerts but they can barely last in the army ㅜ I don't get it;;

1. [+170, -18] Maybe he was hospitalized and discharged over something that wasn't a big deal so please stop assuming things and blowing this out of proportion

2. [+163, -40] You should be hating on the army for getting him physically hurt, why direct the hate at Daesung? My friend had a medical discharge for issues with his spine and I went to the hospital a lot during my service too.

3. [+120, -8] He was hospitalized quietly and he's out now so what's the deal ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+67, -5] Daesung don't be hurt, stay healthy ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

5. [+63, -4] So many people starting rumors every time they go to the hospital ㅋㅋㅋㅋ so pathetic ㅋㅋㅋ people hate when they serve active duty, hate whenever there's an inch of reason for doubt. I hope all of you haters get a boomerang back.

6. [+25, -1] He was already discharged and returned to his unit but look at the media still giving it attention, how tiring for celebrities

7. [+19, -0] Nothing wrong with going to the hospital if you're really sick, and he's already returned to his unit so I don't know why the media is insisting on reporting it... just another reason to hate?

8. [+21, -3] I love how men are always saying you should try to get out of service however way you can but they're so strict when it comes to celebrities ㅋㅋㅋ who cares if he was hospitalized? As long as he completes his service in the end, what's it to you?

9. [+15, -0] I'm glad he was discharged from the hospital but I hope he doesn't get hurt...

10. [+14, -1] The media just wants Big Bang to get a medical discharge so they can get hate like Lee Joon and Im Seulong ㅋㅋㅋ It's not too late to hate on them when they leave in the middle like Lee Joon and Im Seulong

Article: Marijuana TOP and GD and Daesung's health issues, hiccups in Big Bang's army service

Source: TV Daily via Nate

1. [+2,234, -143] It's funny how they have no problem flying around on stage but they act like their bodies are made of glass once they're in the army

2. [+1,903, -130] They're trying really hard to get out of this, aren't they... although I'm sure they had no problem hanging out all night when they were free

3. [+1,606, -176] My own 5 and 3 year old sons didn't need to be hospitalized for laryngitis, why is a healthy young man being hospitalized for that;;

4. [+85, -6] They're just getting ready for the big picture ㅎㅎ

5. [+83, -7] I really don't get it, why do they all get sick only in the army ㅋㅋㅋ try and follow at least half of the example Yoo Seung Ho, Lee Seung Gi, and Taecyeon have led

6. [+82, -3] We are witnessing the magic of men who are able to fly on stage become physically disabled in the army

7. [+51, -7] Celebrities treat the army like it's some virus, they automatically get sick once they enlist

8. [+44, -2] Really weird. My son is active duty and also has laryngitis and had to get a CT scan because of how bad his migraines were. He's been on three different medications because none of them have been working and it's been half a month and they still didn't hospitalize him... ㅠ I guess celebrities get exceptions?

Article: Big Bang G-Dragon -> Daesung, hospitalized during service... why?

Source: TV Report via Naver

1. [+256, -28] Why give these guys hate for going to the hospital when they're sick? There's nothing stupider than acting like you're too good for the hospital and then getting discharged with your body ruined. When you're sick, you should do everything you can to get it treated.

2. [+86, -7] They went to the hospital because they were sick, stop getting it twisted.. should celebrities just hold it in?

3. [+51, -3] What's up with all these rumors when he was already returned to his unit? He should take care of his body, no one's going to take care of him if something goes wrong permanently

4. [+43, -4] Why is this in the media..

5. [+38, -2] He was already returned to his unit and there are accounts saying he's back to service just fine, stop making up whatever you're imagining. It's almost like you guys want him to drop out into public service.

6. [+10, -4] You guys are going to hell for saying all this about someone who's sick

7. [+8, -3] So what if he went to the hospital, he has every right to... so what!!

8. [+8, -4] Not this again tsk tsk why is it that it seems like all celebrity men are just a group of men who are weak and sick somewhere that doesn't show until they're in the army

Source: Naver

1. [+203, -4] Seems the media is all trying to bait us into thinking something?

2. [+148, -15] He was treated for two days for laryngitis but of course people will make up rumors saying he's trying to get out of his service. I guess celebrities should just get sick and die instead of going to get treated.

3. [+135, -27] There were already articles saying he was hospitalized for two days for laryngitis. Please stop acting like he's going to drop out into public service before he actually does. Daesung has already had a weak throat and he's been getting consistent treatment for it before enlisting. GD also injured his ankle before and it never really recovered. You guys never cared about this stuff until they joined the army so please stop talking if you don't know all the facts.

4. [+109, -19] Funny ㅋ other soldiers go to the hospital a lot too, it's not just Big Bang. The media needs to stop.

5. [+5, -0] He's already back in his unit so stop the rumors
