Article: Krystal "None of the f(x) members got plastic surgery"

Source: Newsen via Nate

When asked if they got any work done for their mature new image in 'Red Light', Luna said, "We did not get plastic surgery. We managed our diets and lost weight by skipping on late night snacks."

Luna was asked again on a lie detector test if she ever got any work or procedures done and she said "never", which was revealed to be true.

Krystal had to add, "None of the members have had plastic surgery. Our members are bad at withstanding pain."

-

1. [+307, -31] I don't know about the other members but Krystal got double eyelids done... she looks different from her debut videos and pictures, why is she lying again ㅜㅜ..

2. [+173, -18] Huh????

3. [+112, -16] Hul~ ㅋㅋ

4. [+37, -15] You got double eyelids and your nose done.. why are you lying? Victoria's the real one who hasn't gotten work done.

5. [+35, -15] Did she mean everyone but herself? Because she got double eyelids and the corners of her eyes cut.

6. [+34, -9] I've never thought of getting work done as a con but it's because she says things like this that the comments are like this ㅋㅋㅋ Her eyes and nose are 100% different, is she joking? ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+33, -7] Is she asking for hate? Don't say useless lies like that because it's only going to make people like you less.

8. [+31, -12] The members don't seem like they got any work done but I think Krystal got double eyelids;;

9. [+28, -4] Of all the members, can't believe Krystal said that... Even Krystal fans admit she got double eyelids. Why lie and tarnishy our image ㅠㅠ

Hallyu market narrows down in Japan


Article: [Trend] Hallyu wave staggers in Japan... polarization of K-Pop advancements

Source: Newsis via Naver

Article talks about how with slowing interest in Hallyu in Japan, K-Pop debuts now are trending towards having an established senior to back you up/set some ground while it's nearly impossible for no name rookies to even get in.

1. [+1,932, -162] All of the idols making money in Japan right now need to be grateful to BoA and TVXQ.

2. [+1,540, -102] After hearing that TVXQ had to sing with mics on top of stairs somewhere, it truly showed how much they suffered to get to where they are... Other singers really need to be grateful to TVXQ and BoA.

3. [+1,317, -91] Even Koreans are tired of Hallyu, can't imagine foreigners.

4. [+955, -35] I think it's a good thing! It was hilarious how everyone thought they could advance into Japan and now there will be less comics made putting down Korean artists!!

5. [+881, -68] Don't really care whether they're popular in Japan or not. As long as we like them.

6. [+177, -5] It's only called the K-Pop wave in name. Realistically, the idol market died after the second generation idols, which still hold big fandoms today.

7. [+179, -12] Aside from TVXQ, JYJ, SNSD, KARA, and Big Bang, anyone else mentioned in the media has exaggerated popularity in Japan. 2PM has a small mania fanbase while Big Bang, TVXQ, and JYJ are publicly known over there.

8. [+135, -6] Because anyone who gets a little popular in Korea runs off to Japan so easily. Even if they make more money there, they're bound to fall apart if they don't have a strong fandom to hold fort while they're overseas. Look at SISTAR, they focused on Korea only and now they eventually reached the top.

1. [+5,709, -129] The person responsible for this event is a psycho. Ruined everything with his obsession for celebrities...

2. [+4,033, -118] Ah... poor JYJ and Psy... What to do...

3. [+3,876, -49] Everything was perfect up to jo Soo Mi and after that.... what happened to Psy's audio ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+3,422, -49] Fail ceremony

5. [+3,178, -30] The ceremony was all over the place and the audio was weird

6. [+1,065, -18] I couldn't watch because of how embarrassing it was. It was a mess. It felt like I was watching a year-end celebrity ceremony, not an Asian Games ceremony. What an embarrassment.

7. [+1,059, -31] Thought I'd get to see Kim Yuna, not Lee Young Ae

8. [+1,000, -16] Very disappointed with Jang Jin and Im Kwon Taek. Please don't do this for Pyungchang.

9. [+961, -16] Embarrassing ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ The worst opening ceremony I've seen ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ so embarrassing

10. [+916, -23] I've never seen a more embarrassing opening ceremony held by our country than this one...

Girl's Day, A Pink, and AOA represent the new girl group generation?


Article: Girl group generation change, is it up to Girl's Day, A Pink, and AOA?

Source: Sports Donga via Naver

1. [+7,689, -599] It does seem like a generation change happened naturally recently. Wonder Girls are pretty much disbanded, Soshi's busy dating and don't seem like what they used to be, 2NE1 is... um... going to struggle with their criminal image for a while... Either way, it's about time we got a new generation in.

2. [+6,660, -2,480] AOA has a long way to go to fit in with A Pink and Girl's Day. A Pink > Girl's Day >>>>>>>>>>>>>> AOA, right?

3. [+5,042, -1,283] Do well, A Pink. I agree that these three groups are the trend.

4. [+3,762, -700] A Pink and Girl's Day jjang

5. [+3,415, -884] Girl's Day, let's do well  ♥ I also agree that these three groups are the trend!

6. [+757, -114] But will any of these three groups release a hit like Gee or Tell Me? Idol power lately isn't what it used to be.

7. [+738, -98] Let's be real, AOA has a long way to go

8. [+642, -75] Hmm... No matter how big current girl groups get, they can never surpass what Soshi and WG achieved at their prime. Even now, girl group fandom size-wise A Pink is #2 but they're hundreds of thousands of members behind #1 Soshi. And even the older members of the public, practically the entire nation, knew about Soshi and WG.

9. [+581, -20] Girl groups get popular off of male fans but it's the female fans that keep them going for a long time... In the end, it depends on which of the three groups gain the most female fans and we'll see what happens five years from now.

10. [+623, -154] It was so good up until 2NE1, SNSD, WG, and KARA ㅠㅜ

[Instiz] Double A's Aoora releases questionable solo teaser images


Instiz: Idol A's webcam pictures leaked ahead of new track release... pantsless shock

Basically... a "teaser image" for Double A member Aoora's solo 'Body Talk'. Article tried to make it sound like it was a leaked webcam image.

"Hul...."

"This is a teaser??????"

"Well, it's rated 19+ for a reason so nothing to be shocked about..."

"Hul, that's his leg?"

"Hul, does he have his hand in his..???"

"What is this concept..."

"This would've been a huge issue if it was a girl but even male idols are resorting to (sexual gimmicks) now.."

"I was a Double A fan when they first debuted but they just got weirder and weirder... never thought they'd end up like this."

"Oooh, a male version of the sexy concept ㅋㅋㅋㅋ"

"If a female idol had shot something like this, she would've gotten so much hate.. ㅠㅠ not that being a male is any better. There are so many better sexy concepts to do than this..."

"Is this type of marketing really necessary.."

"Poor Aoora, I'm sure he didn't want to do this.."
