DIA arrives late to a fan signing


Article: DIA Jung Chaeyeon looks apologetic after 'arriving late'

Source: TV Daily via Nate

1. [+486, -2] DIA tried to push hard with this comeback using the Jung Chaeyeon buff but they flopped hard for the second time. Their new album is ranked at the bottom ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Kwang Soo's probably feeling miserable right now after all the expenses for their media play

2. [+324, -37] Seeing a bit of her old face peeking through in this picture

3. [+272, -26] Is being late the trend lately? A few days ago it was Kim Yoo Jung, yesterday it was Yoo Ah In, today it's DIA

4. [+22, -6] This nugu group barely escaped nugudom using IOI and Jung Chaeyeon and they dare to arrive anywhere late? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+18, -4] She has a big face, flat forehead, small eyes, not sure why people think she's pretty;

6. [+18, -3] Her make up's not properly settled in ㅋㅋㅋ she looks like an egg ghost

7. [+17, -0] Jung Chaeyeon's not that big enough for her alone to get her group out there. Should've just waited for her to promote with IOI more, tsk tsk.

8. [+15, -0] We've all said it before that the IOI members are nothing without IOI. The rest of DIA has no impact whatsoever. IOI as a brand has a lot more influence than just being a mere project team but agencies are too stupid to realize that.

9. [+15, -2] There's always drama with this rookie...

10. [+14, -0] This group is so centered around Jung Chaeyeon. From their album jacket pictures to their articles, everything's about Jung Chaeyeon this, Jung Chaeyeon that. At least show us what the other members look like... she's not the only one in DIA.

11. [+13, -0] A perfect example of how hard you'll flop once you leave IOI

12. [+11, -0] Can't believe DIA even copied the tennis skirts that IOI wore ㅋ

Park Bogum and Irene say farewell on 'Music Bank'


Article: 'Music Bank' Irene ♥ Park Bogum, the lovey dovey couple's tearful goodbye

Source: OSEN via Naver



1. [+5,610, -121] Thank you for all the happiness you've given us these past year and two months. The best MCs I've ever seen ㅠㅠㅠ so sad to see them go!!

2. [+5,525, -198] Wow, 'Music Bank' is probably the best music show out of all three. I've never seen the other music shows do something like this for their MC goodbyes. I think they cast them well. I wonder if we'll get another MC couple like them?

3. [+4,107, -137] They were the reason I watched this show... thank you for your hard work!

4. [+3,435, -123] Thank you for your hard work, you made my Friday more enjoyable

5. [+542, -19] Broke my heart to see them choke up in tears. They were the highlight of the show for me ㅜㅜ Great work guys

6. [+400, -9] Park Bogum started MCing before he blew up and Irene started getting famous after she started MCing too so I'm sure they related a lot to each other. So sad to see these two pretty MCs go. You could tell KBS adored them too.

1. [+428, -38] It's sad but they do have to return to their original jobs. Bogum's on the rise right now as an actor and Red Velvet has a lot on their plate as SM's future girl group leader. Great work you two~

2. [+318, -23] It was like watching 'WGM' on 'Music Bank' with them... they also had a lot more views than most idol performances. Fighting on your next projects, guys!

3. [+238, -24] Great work ^^ clap clap clap!!!

4. [+32, -4] I don't know if any couple MC can replace these two ㅠ they had such great chemistry and popularity... I've never seen an MC couple do this well before

5. [+21, -2] Sad as a viewer but I do support them on their paths into acting and singing! Thank you for your hard work!

In the media: Brexit



Article: UK decides Brexit... huge change in global order after UK decides to leave the EU in 43 years

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

1. [+972, -154] EU basically tied all of Europe into being one country while all of the economic and political responsibility fell on the stronger countries like the UK, France, and Germany. The rest of the countries in the EU depended too heavily on them and forced them to make sacrifices for their sake, so of course the UK would want to leave. Now France and Germany will leave too and I think that will leave the weaker countries in the EU in panic

2. [+612, -39] My stocks, I'm so screwed

3. [+429, -135] UK's screwed now

4. [+75, -6] They're surrounded by underdeveloped countries, why would they want to stay? I'm surprised the UK even stayed this long to begin with. Take out Germany and the rest of the countries in the UK are either poor or living off of tourism. The UK has been giving them all they've got even to the point of bankruptcy. The rest of EU only ever wants handouts from the UK or Germany without bothering to pay them back. Furthermore, they're now forced to deal with Muslim immigrants and with Germany saying OK to that, the UK probably saw a dark future for themselves. I can already see Germany regretting their decision after getting everything they have stolen from them from the other poor countries of the EU and Muslim immigrants. I wonder how long Germany will hold it in before leaving too???

5. [+66, -14] The entire world is being shaken up because of the refugees...;;

6. [+37, -6] I do have to point out that the people in the UK who were in support of Brexit were the elderly and impoverished population. I think they're blaming their problems on the immigrants right now.

7. [+32, -3] I never thought I'd see such a historical moment in my own lifetime. I think Brexit will pave the way for France, Germany, and other major countries in the EU to leave one by one. It's probably a combination of the terrorism by IS along with the impoverished state of Italy and Greece, as well as the issue of refugees that led to this. I think this will spell a huge change in the economic picture of the world.

8. [+31, -14] Congrats congrats! The UK is one of the top 5 strongest countries in the world, staying in the EU only benefits everyone else but them. And please never let Turkey into the EU!!

9. [+28, -0] Wow, I didn't think they'd do it but they actually left...

10. [+22, -1] I don't know much else about Brexit other than that it screws Japan over if it happens

[Pann] Dispatch's report on FNC's stock manipulation scandal


Pann: Jung Yonghwa acted all nice ㅋㅋㅋ

Dispatch recently reported that FNC is under investigation for stock manipulation, including one of their idol group leader/actor A. The hints that Dispatch gave was that he was under FNC, he's the main vocalist/leader, and that he was given information about Yoo Jae Suk signing with the company before he was supposed to know, which he used to buy 400 million won worth of the company's stock.

The hints narrowed it down to Jung Yonghwa since FT's leader is Choi Jonghoon, but Choi Jonghoon is not the vocalist of the band.

CNBLUE fans retorted the accusations saying that Jung Yonghwa's in Prague but investigations were already started earlier this month. They then started going around saying it was FT Island's Lee Hongki, even leaving comments on Dispatch's Facebook page, which Dispatch corrected one of them by saying it is indeed the leader. FT Island fans also reason that FNC has never cared about Hongki and would never give him that type of exclusive information.

-

1. [+124, -7] Hasn't CNBLUE always been hopeless from the start? They got caught throwing away their fan gifts before and other autographed CDs

2. [+115, -6] I never paid attention to this scandal because I knew that FT had nothing to do with it but Hongki's randomly being blamed for everything ㅋㅋㅋ Hongki's been in France for K-CON and everything, and I've never seen him be taken care of by Han Sung Ho so why would he be given any type of exclusive information early? Anyway, FT Island's coming back mid July with all self-composed songs so please look forward to it~ I guess if this scandal has done anything, it's given fans an opportunity to promote their comeback.

3. [+100, -3] As a Primadonna, I've always been pissed about FNC only treating CNBLUE with special treatment. I don't hate CNBLUE but this scandal rubs me the wrong way. Why is Hongki being blamed for anything... ㅎ If you don't think it's Jung Yonghwa, then keep it there. Don't drag it on to Hongki too.

4. [+49, -10] I have a lot of interest in stocks and I've noticed that a lot of the celebrities who invest and buy stocks usually don't know much about it and just invest in their company's stocks when good things happen. I personally think that's the case here (not entirely sure). I highly doubt Jung Yonghwa would do something that he knew would impact his career for money that he could make by performing a few times overseas.
- Doesn't that make them dumb if they don't know that what they're doing is illegal?
- Even if he doesn't know that it's wrong, he still committed an illegal act and should be punished accordingly for it.

5. [+41, -6] Everyone already knows that CNBLUE's a messed up group. Even Moon Hee Jun said they were the juniors who never bother to greet him.

6. [+40, -3] Yoo Jae Suk never should've joined FNC...

7. [+39, -1] It's so funny that Primadonnas are saying Choi Jonghoon is horrible at singing and that he's not a vocalist to deny the rumors ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+39, -1] Choi Jonghoon is the leader and he does sing but definitely not main vocal level. He's just a guitar and leader. Hongki's the vocal~

9. [+35, -3] I don't even know why CNBLUE fans are defending him ㅋㅋㅋㅋ what're they trying to defend? This totally drops his image for me

10. [+31, -4] Jung Yonghwa's just one of those celebrities that I could never really like

11. [+28, -1] He acts, plays the guitar, sings, and is the leader. All of the hints point towards Jung Yonghwa, what're they denying?
