Moon Geun Young and Yook Sungjae cast as leads in new SBS drama

Article: Moon Geun Young and Yook Sungjae confirmed leads for new SBS drama

Source: Sports Chosun via Naver

1. [+1,334, -226] The male lead is way below the level of the female lead

2. [+1,048, -162] I understand Moon Geun Young being the lead but the male lead is not a supporting but a lead??? What's going on;;

3. [+913, -118] Moon Geun Young and Yook Sungjae... I don't understand if it's Moon Geun Young's level that's gone down or if it's Yook Sungjae's level that's gone up...

4. [+634, -137] I hate stupid fangirls and their double standards. A male idol gets a lead and he deserves it but a female idol gets a lead and she gets sponsor rumors.

5. [+458, -53] Looking forward to the drama for Moon Geun Young

6. [+171, -17] I really liked Yook Sungjae on 'Who Are You' but this doesn't seem right, him getting a lead...? And their ages don't even match up ㅠㅠ

7. [+172, -38] Since when did Moon Geun Young's level drop to be acting with an idol??? Yook Sungjae to Moon Geun Young... seems like they're just casting anyone these days..

8. [+164, -43] Moon Geun Young and Yook Sungjae?? The levels don't match at all. And he's way below her in terms of acting skill too... and their ages don't match..

9. [+150, -39] Really? Matching Yook Sungjae to Moon Geun Young? Isn't that going too far?

10. [+133, -35] Why is he already getting lead roles. He should be working his way up from supporting roles.

1. [+1,111, -224] Isn't it too early for him to be leading???

2. [+706, -92] Honestly, I can see why he was offered the role considering he carried 'Who Are You' with Kim So Hyun. Either way, if this drama fails, he'll fall off fast but if it does well, he'll definitely rise in status speedily.

3. [+609, -157] His stupid fangirls are scaring me... they think he can get a rookie award now ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+183, -79] I definitely don't think he's ready for lead yet... I find his smile so off putting and he doesn't even match with Moon Geun Young..

5. [+141, -43] I don't think he's getting this role through company power or anything.. Cube's famous for B2ST and 4minute but they're not powerful enough to get him lead roles like this.

1. [+218, -38] Anyone who's seen "Queen's Flower" should know what her acting's like... and that this is wrong

2. [+179, -22] I would've rather someone who looked more sharp and piercing for Baek In Ha ㅜㅜ

3. [+127, -16] It's all up to her in the end but she doesn't look any more intimidating than Kim Go Eun

4. [+26, -12] We demanded that they not cast idols so they resort to models now? ㅋㅋㅋ Are they rebelling against us?

5. [+20, -7] Isn't she bad at acting though...

6. [+19, -2] Nam Joo Hyuk and Lee Sung Kyung ㅋㅋㅋ What has YG done to this drama...

7. [+15, -2] Can she act though? Or is YG doing another package deal?

8. [+12, -4] Yoo In Young would've been so perfect for Baek In Ha...

1. [+2,271, -417] Hul, she matches well!!! I really wish her the best ㅋㅋ fighting!!!

2. [+1,324, -250] Oooh... Lee Sung Kyung ㅎㅎ

3. [+1,093, -22]7 Ooh, looking forward to her taking on an antagonist role

4. [+1,006, -243] I like her

5. [+786, -201] Work hard for us!!!!!

6. [+381, -85] Well this is fail... ㅋ her acting's so bad ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ and she doesn't even look like a nuna to Seo Kang Joon, she looks younger than him

7. [+331, -48] Isn't that male model from YG too... so is this another YG package deal? ㅎㅎ..;;

8. [+274, -16] First Nam Joo Hyuk and now another YG member?

Source: OSEN via Naver

1. [+314, -47] They should be trying to do something with GOT7 first, this group won't be as popular as GOT7 is

2. [+242, -13] JYP seems to be into band concepts lately

3. [+261, -53] JYP seems to think that they can release anything and it'll work. They should be prioritizing 2PM or GOT7 first.

4. [+175, -67] I'll welcome anything by JYP~~ they have such a boy-next-door friendly idol feel to their groups ㅋㅋ fighting

5. [+121, -34] Do well, I have a feeling their song will be good

6. [+31, -6] GOT7 is GOT7 and DAY6 is DAY6, what do you want them to do, they're two separate groups. Both have a chance at doing well so I wish them both luck! The teaser gives me a good feel!!!

7. [+15, -0] DAY6 and GOT7 trained together. And judge them after you've seen one of their performance videos on YouTube.

8. [+24, -9] DAY6 has already been recognized for their talents in Hongdae. Their song sounds good, I wish them luck.


'Unpretty Rap Star 2' warms up with rap battles before the show kicks off

Article: 'Unpretty Rap Star' 11 female rappers go head to head... powerful + emotional

Source: X Sports News via Naver

1. [+1,557, -212] Hyorin was singing... isn't this a rap show?

2. [+1,116, -134] Honestly, they exceded my expectations. Gilme owned it, Trudy and Yoobin were great, and Yeji seems good too. The last three totally reversed the tables for me.

3. [+655, -46] The last three were good~

4. [+581, -72] I was really surprised by Yeji ㅋㅋㅋㅋ so good, she really knows how to ride the rhythm

5. [+314, -23] Gilme was great as always but Yoobin did better than I thought... her skills seem to have been hidden under JYP's style but she's a good rapper with a cool style of her own. Pretty to boot... the last team stood out to me the most.

6. [+334, -45] I hope JYP doesn't mess with Yoobin's rap style... she's really good and good at writing lyrics too

7. [+327, -46] I didn't think Yoobin would be good but she did well ㅋ

8. [+289, -42] Exceeded expectations ㅋㅋㅋ especially WG Yoobin, she really owned the stage! Looking forward to the actual broadcast

1. [+224, -29] She's a vocalist but a better rapper than Jimin

2. [+177, -16] Intimidate the other rappers... more like intimidate Bora ㅋㅋ

3. [+155, -19] The first season at least had rappers recognized for their skills but the second season is just random mix of average people


Cosmetic procedures to improve chances of employment gain interest

Article: "Change the luck of your employment" plastic surgery for the lines of your hands now... 'sad reality'

Source: JTBC via Naver

People who believe in palm readers and that the lines on the palm of your hands determine certain things about your life (wealth, love, happiness) are getting plastic surgery to change the lines in hopes of getting better opportunities for employment.

Other procedures to give a better impression at job interviews include surgery to lift the corners of your lips to make it look like you're smiling if you suffer from resting b*tch face syndrome and a procedure that paralyzes certain muscles of your vocal folds to prevent your voice from shaking if you get nervous easily at job interviews.

The procedure costs about ~$3,000 USD.


1. [+205, -15] Instead of hating on them for deciding to do these things, I think we should be more understanding of our societal circumstances that led them to this point..

2. [+148, -12] I think people should be more understanding of how dire the situations are for these people to have to resort to things like palm line surgery for hopes of employment. Anyone who's actually gone through the struggles of finding employment wouldn't be able to criticize them. They're obviously grasping for any hope they can find here. If anything, this is harder on them than any of us.

3. [+119, -5] So frustrating... don't know whether to hate on them for being crazy enough to do this or hate on the society for making it so hard to find a job...

4. [+15, -3] The $3,000 they spent on the procedure would be better spent buying presents and eating good food for the sake of their mental health..

5. [+12, -8] And this is why they're unemployed

6. [+10, -4] We're still so barbaric...

7. [+8, -3] What did these kids do to deserve this? Hate the government, not on them

8. [+6, -1] This is why Koreans are so religious and easy to fool. We have one of the highest scam rates in the world. Koreans will believe everything. Just look at this... tell someone you'll have better luck of employment if you get this surgery and they believe you and do it. Idiots;;

9. [+5, -1] Like the best replies say, just how desperate are they that they're looking for hope anywhere they can find ㅜㅜ Good luck to everyone.. I'm sure there will come a night that you can sleep comfortably. Fighting!!

10. [+5, -0] This just reflects how difficult finding employment is in reality. All of the junior and high school kids who are so used to watching dramas think it's easy to become rich and find a job and meet a rich man who drives a foreign car but that's not reality tsk tsk

1. [+5,169, -134] This country is insane

2. [+3,226, -85] Honestly, your face is a part of your resume now too. People would rather pick someone with a favorable impression.

3. [+2,938, -160] Changing your palm lines is a bit much... I get getting procedures for your face but your palms?!

4. [+1,880, -87] Finding employment requires a certain amount of luck but I don't think unnecessary cosmetic procedures would help that

5. [+1,517, -148] I can see why companies don't want to hire people like this

6. [+286, -15] Just how desperate are they that they have to resort to this..?

7. [+276, -8] My palm readings say that I'd be a chaebol but I'm unemployed

8. [+216, -12] Makes me think that Korean society is much too difficult to live for our 20s-30s generation...
