Black Pink releases red image teasers for 'Playing with Fire' comeback

Article: Black Pink's new track is titled 'Playing with Fire'... powerful red teaser released

Source: Mydaily via Naver

1. [+1,034, -196] As a rookie group, they hit #1 on Melon and Gaon's monthly chart, I wonder why anyone would call them flops...

2. [+866, -190] I'm definitely getting a feel for their concept with the teaser image alone, I sense a daebak in the works

3. [+667, -127] 'Whistle' was #1 for August's monthly chart and #4 on September's, why would you call them a flop ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+556, -111] Don't they have two title tracks this comeback? I wonder what their other song's going ot be like

5. [+506, -110] Look at that aura... ㅠㅠ I heard their new song will really show off their potential, can't wait..!! Hopefully it's their best yet!

6. [+223, -40] I was quite sad that they promoted for so short last time, I hope this is a good opportunity to promote in a more variety of ways with a good song and get more love ^^

7. [+187, -38] Love it ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

8. [+96, -9] Really can't wait for this one, 'Whistle' was already such a hit

9. [+159, -35] So pretty ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ

10. [+78, -10] CEO-nim, please give Black Pink their own reality TV show for this comeback!! We can't let these pretty faces go to waste! I want to see them more

A Pink ends comeback promos empty handed

Article: A Pink ends comeback 'empty handed', what was the issue?

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+259, -8] Well they had a long hiatus and their new song didn't have enough of an impact

2. [+251, -16] They need better songs.. and it's not like they were ever S tier as a group either...

3. [+208, -8] It's fine that they didn't win #1 on music shows since trophies don't mean what they used to anyway but it does feel like A Pink as a group is getting less attention, especially since groups like Twice, Black Pink, and IOI have come out. Those groups are always headlining and charting strongly whereas A Pink has none of that. The public just doesn't care about them anymore.

4. [+28, -4] I'd put SHINee in the same flop category too. They were barely getting some trophies when it was an empty house and then got pushed aside entirely by BTS... A Pink and SHINee both had weak songs.

5. [+27, -3] It's just a result of times changing. A Pink isn't considered that pretty compared to other idol groups and they won #1 till now with good songs. It's been a while since A Pink debuted too and they've already hit their peak so it's natural that they're on the decline now. And it's not like you're considered a flop just because you didn't win #1... It's just best that they accept what they are now and promote as they are... Anyway, it seems like the members went through some intense dieting. They all came back so skinny..

6. [+21, -5] I liked their new song but I do think that the public is bored with them always doing the same concept

7. [+18, -3] Their song was pretty bad

8. [+17, -2] This was actually their worst song to date. I love all of A Pink's songs but their new one was a miss ㅜ

9. [+16, -2] The members looked great from outfit to style but the song was bad... It felt like a packed soccer stadium and the players are all in good condition... and then the ball is missing right as the game's about to start.

10. [+14, -3] I guess even A Pink's washed up now...

11. [+11, -2] It's understandable if you consider how long A Pink's been out already. Idol life spans may seem long but they usually hit peak at about 5 years and then go on decline after that. A Pink's an older group now so of course they're going to focus more on individual activities with less album promos since there are way younger rookie groups constantly debuting. It's the natural flow of idol groups, not necessarily a sign of their popularity dropping...

12. [+9, -5] The public's just bored now

13. [+8, -1] A Pink barely promotes on varieties or other individual activities. Their only forms of promotions were music shows or concerts and they were on hiatus for a year and 2 months while promoting overseas so their fandom got a lot weaker in the process. I don't think A Cube is promoting them as much as they used to either. They have a lot of fan meets in Japan but none in Korea... I get that the foreign market is more profitable but you shouldn't ignore your Korean fans like that.


J. Tune clarifies how they lost MBLAQ's trophy

Article: Why did MBLAQ's #1 trophy end up at a market... fans protest

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

J. Tune apologized to fans saying they lost the trophy when they kept it in storage while moving buildings.

1. [+221, -28] This is why people are always telling fans to stop wasting money on their idols and go buy their parents something nice

2. [+207, -6] Must feel really bad as a fan...

3. [+91, -16] It's none of your business what fans choose to spend their money on so butt out. It's like telling a gamer to stop wasting money on games and go be nice to his parents. How about in the time you're writing internet comments, you go write your parents a nice letter? Spending money on idols isn't even a crime so what's it to you?

4. [+15, -1] MBLAQ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Their CEO is a real idiot for not being able to do anything when the 5 members were at their peak ㅋㅋㅋ Imagine if MBLAQ was under a big 3 agency ㅋㅋㅋ they would've dominated every other male idol group at the time... At least Rain gave them some decent songs when he was around. Rain's song for them was their first and last #1 trophy ㅋㅋ J. Tune let Rain go and then MBLAQ flopped right after, what a mess ㅋㅋ That Rado guy who started writing songs for MBLAQ after Rain left... I always wondered how he was even given opportunities to write songs because I'm sure I could've written better ones with my feet ㅋㅋ

5. [+9, -1] I remember Seungho being one of the most prestigious students at Anyang Arts High... how did he end up like this

6. [+9, -1] I didn't even know they left for the army..

7. [+8, -5] I'm surprised they have fans left to complain for them..

8. [+5, -0] How embarrassing... It must suck to find out about this as a member..


Source: Naver

1. [+790, -13] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ What is this ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+757, -8] As if the trophy takes up any room, what was the agency doing not taking care of it

3. [+647, -16] Pathetic excuse considering how much the trophy means to fans

4. [+392, -9] Hul... ridiculous

5. [+313, -5] This is so wrong..;; ridiculous

6. [+84, -4] MBLAQ, what a group of tragedy ㅠ They could've made it big like their debutmates B2ST but their agency couldn't even support them. I don't even remember the other members other than Lee Joon who made a name for himself with acting ㅠㅠ

7. [+77, -2] It's easy for solo singers to take care of their own trophies but for groups, it's unfair to have one take it so the agency obviously kept it but wow, never knew this would ever happen ㅋㅋ ended up in a flea market... ㅋㅋ are they sure they didn't throw it out while moving? ㅋ

8. [+68, -1] How does an agency like this exist?


If Won Bin, Park Bogum, and Goo Hye Sun originally debuted as idols...

Article: Goo Hye Sun almost became a FinKL or 2NE1 member

Source: Mydaily via Naver

1. [+288, -10] I wonder what it would've been like if she joined 2NE1... I can't imagine her singing a song like 'I Am the Best'

2. [+215, -7] I doubt she would've met Ahn Jae Hyun if she became a 2NE1 member.. which is a shame because they have honey chemistry now..

3. [+230, -20] Thank the stars she isn't in 2NE1

4. [+34, -2] ㅋㅋ Everyone knows she initially prepared to be in a girl group which is why she knows how to write and compose songs, as well as sing and play the piano and guitar

5. [+29, -3] I think she still would've gone into acting if she joined 2NE1

6. [+23, -1] Goo Hye Sun in 2NE1... hard to imagine ㅋ

7. [+27, -3] I wonder if YG would've still dressed Goo Hye Sun in leather leggings and spiked gloves with eyeliner up to the temples of your eyes? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I can't imagine it

8. [+29, -4] Her visuals are not meant for girl groups. Even as an actress, her visuals are considered top level. Idols are for kids with cute faces. Even if she did become an idol, she probably would've transitioned to acting sooner or later.


Article: Park Bogum, a multi-entertainer that SM, YG, and JYP lost out on

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+657, -16] That's why he's so successful now. If he had joined any of those agencies, he'd probably be another idol right now

2. [+462, -15] Proves that you don't need to join the top 3 to be successful

3. [+453, -15] One thing's for sure, he doesn't match any of them

4. [+35, -4] If he joined YG, I wonder when he would've ever gotten to debut... they make you train for at least 4-5 years... and then count the hiatus they'll put him on!!! So glad that he never joined YG!!!!!

5. [+35, -1] Who knows with life, we'll probably never even know of an actor named Park Bogum if he joined a bigger agency


Source: Naver

1. [+3,297, -49] He chose the right agency. His acting's so good and you can tell that he puts in so much effort into every single one of his scenes~~ ^^ Can't wait for his next drama

2. [+2,596, -78] Thank you to those agencies for missing out on him

3. [+516, -8] I'm sure he would've been successful no matter what he pursued but his visuals, acting skills, and overall physical are too good to just be an idol ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+480, -10] He would've been fine no matter where he went ㅋㅋ

5. [+446, -10] So glad he chose to pursue acting


Article: Park Bogum and Won Bin were originally going to be an idol + an HOT member

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+202, -14] How dare SM ever consider putting Won Bin in those wild HOT hair and dance styles... if he had become an HOT member, he probably would be a washed up star on 'I Live Alone' right now...

2. [+195, -5] Won Bin matches acting way more than being an HOT member

3. [+193, -13] Not that I'm trying to put HOT down but it's obvious that SM never put Won Bin in because he's way too handsome and would've just overshadowed the other members. The point of a group is to make everyone shine, not have one stand out~~ HOT could not have handled Won Bin~~

4. [+15, -0] Apparently he got into all of the agencies he applied to but he was grateful for the first agency that contacted him and signed with them first ㅋ I would've personally picked SM, YG, or JYP.. ㅋ

5. [+14, -0] Life would be so unfair if Won Bin was a good singer too

6. [+13, -0] If Won Bin debuted as an idol before becoming an actor, I think he still would've been popular.. and if he was in HOT to boot, he'd probably be more active too, shooting more varieties and probably double the movies than he's shot now ㅋㅋㅋ but the important part to note is that Won Bin's visuals were never meant to be an idol...

7. [+7, -1] If Won Bin was in HOT, I wonder if Shinhwa or Sechs Kies would've even dared to debut at that point

8. [+5, -0] I remember someone saying they heard Won Bin sing at a dinner party and that he had a good voice. Of course he wasn't exceptionally talented or anything but HOT was always focused more on dancing and rapping than singing. Won Bin wouldn't have been a good fit anyway since his image is more refined and classy, he would've stuck out like a sore thumb between the other members. I also think he'd be a bad dancer.


Park Soo Jin reps confirm it was a premature birth

Article: Park Soo Jin's premature birth, "It's true the birth was early but he's healthy without any issues"

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+736, -31] He might've been a premature birth but she was blessed to have still been able to give birth naturally without any issues. Congratulations on becoming parents!

2. [+677, -48] It's not like it was a shotgun wedding, no need for her to get any hate for it. I'm glad she had a healthy birth, congratulations~~

3. [+540, -24] Congratulations. She was blessed to have both her and the baby healthy despite the premature birth. The baby probably wanted to see his parents so badly that he came out early.

4. [+46, -9] I had a premature birth at 34 weeks too. My daughter was born at 2.27 kg and she's now 9 months and is growing fine, looks just like she any other baby. As small as the birth was, just raise him bigger and stronger ^^ congratulations

5. [+43, -5] My friend gave birth at 9 months too and she doesn't smoke, drink, or even say any swears but her baby is growing big and strong.

6. [+41, -20] I had a feeling something felt off when a pregnant woman kept shooting pictorials and whatnot. She's already so wealthy, not sure why she's so greedy. I guess it ended up in a premature birth anyway.

7. [+36, -6] You're safe to give birth past the 34 week mark. You don't need to wait for the full 40 weeks. The lungs are done developing by 34 weeks so you can give birth any time after that. There are a ton of healthy babies that are born before that too because of advancement in medical technology. Mothers already blame themselves very hard when they give premature births so I hope she doesn't read some of the comments here.. congratulations ^^

8. [+32, -8] She gave birth at the 30 week mark though, no? But she's rich enough to probably afford the best management possible... I don't know why she kept working on TV shows after she got pregnant when her body already seemed so weak for pregnancy to begin with... what a shame.

9. [+32, -1] There's no way she got pregnant before the wedding considering the dates of it all, it doesn't match up

10. [+25, -8] Park Soo Jin was not pregnant before the wedding, stop mentioning that

11. [+21, -15] She wasn't even obligated to work through her pregnancy like other working moms, she should've just stayed home and taken care of her health but instead she was out on pictorial shoots and promoting things on SNS and going on vacation everywhere... tsk tsk

12. [+18, -5] 30 weeks is actually quite early for a birth, I'm glad the baby is healthy
