'Woman Sense' spots Yoo Jae Suk's wife and son on an outing

Article: Yoo Jae Suk's wife Na Kyung Eun spotted at the Han River with son Jiho

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+1,502, -66] Reporter, you like spying on them? Now Yoo Jae Suk's family won't be able to go back to the Han River anymore

2. [+1,240, -53] Pathetic how reporters always claim that the public has a right to know when they're basically invading the private lives of these stars

3. [+1,139, -34] There's a lot of talk about paparazzis nowadays... but I don't think it's fair that paparazzis take pictures of little kids just because their parents happen to be famous. Unless the parents specifically ask for that attention, please don't show them to the public, you trashy reporters..

4. [+59, -1] Yoo Jae Suk struggled with his lack of privacy but came to terms with him, I don't think he'd like his wife and son being spyed on like this. They weren't even "spotted", I bet the reporters followed them and camped out for the pictures ㅡㅡ

5. [+58, -0] Yoo Jae Suk purposely goes out of his way to protect Jiho's privacy by keeping him off camera.. wouldn't taking pictures like this be grounds for a lawsuit?

6. [+50, -1] I find it laughable how reporters invade privacies to take pictures without consent and then release them in articles saying people aren't allowed to copy or use the photographs in anyway ㅋㅋㅋ So their own privacy is important but not the privacy of others? Trash

7. [+46, -1] Yoo Jae Suk is someone everyone likes but I bet his son will remember him as a busy father. I'm sure he wants to spend his childhood making memories with his dad but he only gets to hang out with his mom.. how sad

8. [+44, -2] Yoo Jae Suk clearly seemed like he wanted Jiho to live a normal life off camera.. so just leave them alone!!!

3. [+319, -11] Oh, he's discharged ㅎㅎ we missed you, Song Joong Ki ㅎ

4. [+2,673, -47] Finally he's discharged!!! We missed you!!

5. [+257, -14] Must've been hard for him to enlist at the height of his fame but I'm glad he's back! ♥

1. [+489, -20] Why are others' army services so fast...

2. [+363, -13] Congratulations ^^ While someone else throws his own country away to avoid enlistment, I wish all the more luck to Song Joong Ki upon his return to TV..

3. [+274, -11] Congratulations. The country is a better place thanks to men like you unlike some of the other military evaders in politics nowadays.

Article: "The ocean is ours"... SISTAR's beach pictorial full of healthy beauty

X Sports News via Naver

1. [+621, -60] Young and pretty... I like how they look so healthy without looking skeleton thin~

2. [+520, -58] Hyorin's backside is the most beautiful.

3. [+403, -36] So jealous of their legs and healthy beauty

4. [+351, -82] Can we get some restrictions around here though? Sick of girl groups shaking their butts on stage, it's horrifying to see young kids copying their dances

5. [+268, -38] Hot bodies

6. [+113, -17] So tired of girl groups wearing skimpy outfits to get popularity and then once they earn said popularity, they come out on TV and cry and whine about being judged for their bodies..

7. [+54, -8] Wow! You can really tell they've been working out

8. [+63, -18] Look at those hips;; so sexy

9. [+42, -3] Looks like squats are all they did

10. [+42, -9] It's back to the season where SISTAR prances around in skimpy clothing. A pity because they're good singers but they're only focused on cheap sex appeal.

11. [+47, -15] Hyorin's hips are no joke in that second picture, such a healthy beauty ^^

12. [+32, -4] Of course they come out in skimpy clothing now that it's summer

3. PDs get scared when called for a meeting to the Korea Communications Standards Commission (O)

6. Maknae PDs are delegated to delivering news about stars being taken off a show (X)
7. PDs cast stars based on being friends with that particular star (O)


1. [+437, -29] Let's remember that it is a drama after all and some things have to be exaggerated for the sake of it

2. [+343, -35] This isn't a documentary, it's a drama

3. [+259, -10] Even part-time workers get into fights over their pay being a couple cents less, there's no way that fights don't break out in jobs like this

4. [+268, -20] I doubt the drama would be as fun if it only depicted reality

5. [+200, -14] Nowadays, huge agencies have so much power that PDs aren't as powerful as they used to be

6. [+46, -6] I read a lot of PDs tweeted about agreeing with the drama so I don't think the drama is completely out of line with what really goes on

7. [+33, -5] I'd rather like a little reality than too much makjang

8. [+39, -8] I remember a PD posted on SNS that 'Producers' was an accurate depiction of the lives of PDs ㅎㅎ

9. [+25, -1] I'm sure some parts are exaggerated for th esake of the drama but even real life PDs agreed that they could relate to the drama on some levels

10. [+17, -2] I always wondered while watching just how much of it reflected reality.. interesting to know.


Academies offer lessons on "how to act like a good person" in light of new law

Article: "We can teach you to look nice"... even character education can be tutored?

Source: SBS via Naver

New law was recently passed where elementary, junior, and high schools must provide character/personality building education in the classroom (Korea is the first to have a law of its kind). It is expected that colleges will be increasingly screening applicants for positive character qualities. One private college already screens for four character traits including sincerity, initiative, teamwork ability, etc.

While most agree that it can be a positive thing to teach students, it is already being abused by after school academies/tutoring agencies where one can be "taught to act like a good person" for ~$700 in 6 lessons. The tutoring is based on how to pass "character assessment interviews".

1. [+478, -8] Can anyone tell me how this is any different from teaching someone how to be a two-faced person

2. [+345, -4] ㅋㅋㅋ As long as you have money, I guess even anyone can buy themselves to be a nice person

3. [+298, -5] Is this even necessary

4. [+23, -0] The world is going nuts... tutoring on character? Whoever thought this would be a thing.. that's scary. Recreating your character/personality out of lies..

5. [+22, -4] So you can be a good person by spreading money on yourself now?

6. [+18, -2] It's sad that something that should be taught in the household is being taught at school and after school academies.

7. [+17, -1] Teach you how to look nice? If you're a messed up person, it's going to be hard to fix that. But sure, let's say money does make you look nice.. and you manage to fool your school into believing so and they defend you every time you mess up. "Oh, so-and-so is such a nice kid, he would never do that". They'll still be two-faced hypocrites in society anyway. Kids these days are so disrespectful, I wish more kids would mature with some morals.

8. [+14, -3] So it's not even teaching morals and all that but simply to "look nice" enough to pass character assessments? That's basically teaching someone to be fake.. how is that normal at all? Character and morals are built by the upbringing of your family. What does it even mean to "look like a nice person"?

9. [+13, -6] Kids grow up so coddled nowadays that they end up being self-centered. They have issues controlling their anger when things don't go their way.

10. [+9, -0] The fact that they're even trying to grade someone on their character is foolish. How can an applicant interview just be able to tell "oh this guy is messed up" and "hey he seems like a nice person"?? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
