Irene's attitude controversy on 'Radio Star' continues to brew

Article: Red Velvet's Irene, why did her 'attitude controversy' get on the chopping block?

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+178, -14] Why should the viewers already know that she's an introverted, shy personality? That's stuff only fans know... She was just sitting there smiling the whole time. Should've put her in the audience seat instead of a guest on the show. No matter how her personality is, she was given a job and she should've been more active about fulfilling her role.

2. [+103, -5] Just seems like SM's mistake for putting her on the show. Seulgi was alright last time, would've been better for her to put her on one more time. Seulgi would've fit the episode's concept too since she had a longer training period...

3. [+86, -9] I'm pretty sure scriptwriters call the stars ahead of the recording to check with all of the questions they're going to ask... Is Irene a babo? She couldn't even get a word out... and it's not even that she couldn't talkl, she was stuttering over her words too, really looked like she was missing a few IQ points...

4. [+24, -1] ... So many no name celebrities would die for this opportunity. She deserves the hate so just take it. Pretty faces like her are a dime a dozen, it doesn't excuse her from anything.

5. [+23, -0] I understand that there are personalities like her but she's on a talk show, she should know that you're supposed to talk on a talk show...

1. [+625, -89] If she was just going to sit there and smile the whole time, she should've sat in the audience seat

2. [+231, -15] When you know that there are others who are more desperate for this opportunity, it should inspire you to work harder on a program that you know is popular. Even if that's how her personality originally is, she should work on fixing it since being a celebrity is her job.

3. [+252, -26] It just looks like she doesn't care... Think of all the stars who will never get an opportunity like 'Radio Star'... She personally needs to really work on this. She has no charm as an idol.

4. [+202, -15] Even if she has a shy personality, she should know that if she decided to go on a TV show, she should try her best for it

5. [+193, -13] I still don't get why Irene was called as a guest for this episode...

6. [+148, -14] I wonder how such a quiet personality like hers dreamt of becoming a celebrity~

7. [+141, -14] If she decided on becoming a celebrity, shouldn't she work on fixing her personality?? She just doesn't care

8. [+121, -10] I'm not saying being shy is a bad thing but if she knows she's shy, she should've turned down the casting offer. I'm her fan so it's frustrating for me to see these attitude controversies about her all the time. I can't help but wonder if she'd still be acting like this if she wasn't under SM...

9. [+121, -11] Irene, you're not a rock, at least say something if you're on a talk show. SM should get some hate for putting her on 'Radio Star' to begin with.

10. [+106, -6] I fully think her attitude warranted this controversy. She struggled to keep up with the other panelists, Kim Gura kept giving her opportunities to say something and even gave her that SM special treatment but she kept looking at the staff and not finishing her sentences ㅠ Knowing that the show is recorded over several hours and that's the best the editing team could do with her ㅡㅡ I guess I'm not the only one that realized she was pretty bad yesterday

11. [+155, -25] Twice's foreigners Sana and Tzuyu worked way harder on talk shows. MCs tried so hard to help Irene stay afloat but she was quiet the entire time...

12. [+135, -22] Would prefer to never see her on varieties again...

13. [+98, -7] She's super pretty but doesn't seem to have any other talent. Her personality just isn't a fit for talk shows.


Article: Irene's 'Radio Star' attitude controversy, "She looked like a 20 year veteran" vs "Her beauty did all the work"

Source: The Fact via Nate

1. [+2,789, -76] It's not that her personality is an issue, she just has 0 variety skills and 0 talent

2. [+2,166, -62] She's painfully shy

3. [+2,031, -154] Reminds me exactly of Sohee back when she was with WG

4. [+266, -13] We're not blaming her personality... we're just saying that she's being paid to entertain and how she performed is not deserving of that pay

5. [+226, -16] Bottom line is that she's on the show to work and get paid and she didn't try enough to deserve it at all

6. [+195, -11] Why was she on the show at all???

7. [+193, -12] She just looked so stupid.. to the point where I questioned why she even bothered to become a celebrity;;;

8. [+171, -13] The other MCs kept trying to give her screentime and ask her questions but she just sat there... that was really wrong. I don't know why you'd bother even going on the show if you expect to get paid for doing nothing.

9. [+163, -7] If you know that you're a quiet, shy personality, you should not be on a variety show.

10. [+137, -13] She tried damn hard to look pretty the entire time too

11. [+133, -16] I get that she's the pretty, quiet type of personality but if she's on a variety show, she really needs to talk more ㅠㅠ

12. [+128, -13] It just shows that SM's the type to stick their idols everywhere whether they're prepared or ready for it or not. Even with the other guests trying to help her out, she stayed quiet. I would blame SM for putting her on the show knowing that she wasn't ready for it.

13. [+127, -20] Truly shows why Red Velvet has no male fans. People think that men only like girl groups for their pretty faces but they actually fall for the charms more than anything. The average looking members with charms are more popular than the pretty faces with no charms (ie IOI Choi Yoojung and Kang Mina). Types like Irene who are pretty but so scared to ruin their image or have any fun will never be popular. Red Velvet may look pretty but men don't like them because they have no charms. Twice and IOI are the #1 and #2 girl groups for a reason.

14. [+104, -6] If she's going to rely on her pretty face to do all the work for her, she won't be cast anywhere else. Why? Because pretty faces are a dime a dozen. She needs to try harder.

15. [+100, -5] This controversy would've never happened if they put Joy on the show instead


Youngji unveiled as guest member for DSP's new co-ed group KARD

1. [+426, -8] The A has changed to a D

2. [+436, -17] A co-ed group, well I guess it's new... I hope Youngji finds satisfaction as a singer. Do well, KARD!! Just don't end up like Co-Ed did

3. [+179, -16] Ah, Youngji-ya ㅠㅠ I didn't think I'd see you on stage again. Anyway, will be looking forward to the V app stream today. Fighting to the other members too!! Totally became a fan after watching the V app ㅋ

4. [+199, -34] Youngji-ya, thanks for coming back to the stage!! Always fighting!! Don't forget that us fans are always with you ♡♡♡ Love you Heo Youngji!!!! ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡ KARD fighting!! Youngji fighting!!

5. [+91, -17] KARD fighting!!

6. [+35, -2] If they made a group with Chaekyung, Youngji, Shiyoon + someone else, they'd do well above average

7. [+28, -0] It's DSP so I have low expectations. When they first started as a company, they copied whatever SM did and put out a few SM+1 groups but what're they now? Have they even had a decent group since KARA? They're one of the oldest agencies along with SM but they can't even join the KOSDAQ. It's amazing that they're even staying afloat.

8. [+22, -0] Leave it to DSP to do the cringe stuff ㅋ

9. [+16, -0] So I guess the 'hidden members' are the guest members for this group. I hope they get a lot of good members then.

1. [+98, -4] It's been so long since we've had a co-ed group, I guess it's fresh ㅋㅋ

2. [+64, -17] How dare they use Youngji for a group that's obviously going to flop... she's good on her own with varieties, acting, and singing... just give her a solo

3. [+62, -2] The reason so many agencies don't put out co-ed groups is because they're harder to manage and the kids are younger and more highly emotional so they end up getting into emotional messes and eventually ending the group

4. [+11, -1] A co-ed group ㅋㅋㅋ sigh... just keep giving her solos and supporting her on variety shows

5. [+4, -0] Putting a bunch of dating age kids in a co-ed group... with pretty and handsome faces to boot. Talk about an animal kingdom...


Big Bang and EXO face off for a return match with winter comebacks

Article: 'Big Bang vs EXO' return match... who will win this time?

Source: Sports Donga via Naver

1. [+2,110, -314] Obviously Big Bang

2. [+1,621, -234] I don't know about YouTube and physical sales but Big Bang will for sure win digital sales

3. [+1,078, -67] That article title...

4. [+1,101, -150] Big Bang, let's hit daebak!!!! Their last album until we have to wait who knows how many years... ㅜㅜ

5. [+1,227, -203] We don't have to spell it out, do we?

6. [+245, -31] Big Bang, probably...

7. [+241, -35] What do you think the answer is when the kings are back?

8. [+260, -47] Obviously Big Bang, no? They're the jjang of idols

9. [+227, -34] Yup, Big Bang~~~ undeniable

10. [+207, -31] Honestly Big Bang will probably dominate everything other than the physical sales

11. [+152, -19] It's unfair to call it a fair battle when Big Bang's an official album and EXO's a winter special album ㅋㅋㅋ don't pick fights

12. [+229, -45] It's actually insulting that Big Bang is put up against them ㅋㅋ


Top 6 high quality Korean dramas with low viewer ratings

Article: Masterpiece dramas that are worth a watch despite low viewer ratings

Source: Oh My News via Naver

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
