Zico and Dean disappoint on 'Show Me the Money 6'


Article: Dean and Zico's special performance has netizens saying "Is Dean even at the level to be judging the raps of others?"

Source: Bridge Econ via Nate

1. [+709, -43] Dean has a goosebump-inducing voice but that's it, he has no weapon of his own. And Zico's skills are honestly way more hyped up than they're worth. Dok2's rapping is such a huge difference in skill compared to him.

2. [+610, -72] If Dean's a rapper, he should practice his rapping more instead of messing about on TV like this

3. [+560, -46] Dean doesn't have the prestige or the rapping skills to be here so why is he on as a judge??? Who got him in the show??

4. [+75, -3] Dean's just an R&B rising star for his unique voice... and that's it ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Zico got totally owned yesterday too

5. [+69, -0] I was honestly surprised. Zico and Dean are trendy names so I thought they'd put on a show but they were totally owned;; And they were after Dok2 so the comparison in skill was even bigger;; they just seemed a lot less serious than the senior teams before them;;

6. [+69, -2] Dean's more of a vocal and producer than a rapper and I think Zico just brought him on as networking. Dean doesn't have the skills to even compete on this show if Zico never got him on.

7. [+67, -1] I always thought Dean had a Zion T feel to him but realized that he doesn't even come close to Zion T in skill;;; Zion T dominated last year

8. [+59, -3] Zico got owned by Dok2 and Jay Park ㅋㅋ

9. [+54, -2] Whenever Dean's videos get put up on Facebook, people are always like he's so handsome, he's so sexy, he has a good voice... yeah, he has a really good voice but hmm.. his stage manners are really cringe. He tries so hard to act different and cool ㅠㅠ with his hat pushed on low, murmuring in a low voice.. so cringe ㅠㅠ

10. [+43, -2] Jay Park was really good, way better than Zico. Dok2's on a different level, totally deserves #1

11. [+31, -5] Dean's a vocal and producer... and Zico had no right to be a judge after what he showed yesterday. As an idol, he puts on quite the show but his rapping alone leaves much to be desired... Seems CJ put out a Zico + Dean deal for the viewer ratings but the two should've known to reject the offer out of respect.

12. [+30, -3] Dean and Zico seemed more like participants than judges

Celebrities show off their summer bodies



Article: Hot summer, cool bodies... 'diet stimulation pictures!'

Source: Star News via Nate

1. [+537, -39] I'll never look like that anyway... I'm just going to eat

2. [+517, -28] They deserve to show off ㅋㅋㅋ I'm always jealous of the results of extreme self management ㅋㅋㅋ I know that eating less and exercising more is the answer but I wonder why that's so hard to do ㅋㅋ

3. [+330, -16] To the first comment, I'll eat with you...

4. [+28, -2] Guys, just eat

5. [+26, -8] Behind those stunning bodies is the blood and sweat of pure effort...

6. [+21, -0] Too many things you have to give up if you want a body like that

7. [+15, -1] Han Hye Ji puts me in awe...

8. [+12, -3] Come on, best replies, don't give up yet... try exercising

U-Kwon: Cement

Q: What's the prettiest feature on my face?
U-Kwon: Boogers

Q: What's most important to oppa?

U-Kwon: ㅋㅋ

1. [+211, -1] So hopeless acting like this to fans who spent their money just to come see you... please learn from PO and Zico. You're only as popular as you are thanks to Zico anyway. Poor Zico for having to put up with a member like you.

2. [+210, -2] This is really mean, isn't it...? It's fine that he has a girlfriend but why would he respond like this to these questions...

3. [+181, -2] This is just the tip of the iceberg, he's gone a ton more ㅋㅋㅋ that's why I left the fandom, totally had it with him

4. [+70, -0] ㅋㅋㅋ I left the fandom too. I don't know about now but I know back then there were a lot of BBCs who tried to act all cool about this. When one tried to call U-Kwon out for his behavior, everyone ganged on her saying they don't need a fan like her ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+50, -1] I don't care whether you date or get married... but please have some basic respect towards the people who are putting food on your table. Or don't attend these fan signings at all...

6. [+39, -1] I wouldn't even know that he existed if not for Zico, PO, and Park Kyung ㅋㅋㅋㅋ he has tons of other fan service controversies than this~~

7. [+31, -0] Hul, I would be done if I were his fan

8. [+30, -0] I'm pretty whatever about most of them but that ㅋㅋ to the question about Taiwanese BBCs... what the...

9. [+25, -1] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I went to a fan signing once and when fans tried to hold his hand, he'd give a deep sigh, and he'd cross his arms when fans wanted a high five ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ and when you try to talk to him while getting your autograph, he'll just be like, "ah.. yeah... thank you" ㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+19, -1] I feel so bad for Park Kyung ㅠㅠㅠㅠ I don't know how he thinks of his situation but the way I see it, he's stuck with members who are always causing scandals (not the quiet ones like B-Bomb or Jaehyo), and his friend of 10 years and the leader is off preoccupied with other things ㅠㅠ Park Kyung's super smart, a Mensa member, a good rapper, and he seems to have a talent for writing and composing songs too ㅠㅠㅠ

Actor Thomas McDonnell tweets nonsense Korean




Article: Hollywood actor's SNS account is overflowing with 'Hangeul'

Source: MK Sports via Nate

Netizens assumed his account was hacked at first until realizing that he's just a fan of how Korean and Japanese looks aesthetically and 'collects' random things to copy and paste since all of his posts are usually nonsensical comments he copied from other people.

1. [+564, -4] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ What a funny guy

2. [+474, -4] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ What is this ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+429, -9] So he's a Korean otaku ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+36, -1] Please go interview him and ask him why he's doing this so we can find out

5. [+35, -1] He tweeted 49 minutes ago too ㅋㅋㅋㅋ "Dammit, I don't want to go to after school class" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+31, -1] I can understand this because I had a professor who's American but his wife is Korean and when he first visited Korea, he saw a sign that said '약' (medicine) and he thought the character for it was so cute and adorable that it made him start learning the language. I guess foreigners find Korean aesthetically cute;;

7. [+28, -0] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's funnier to me that he has no idea why we're laughing at him ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ pretty cute

8. [+21, -0] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I went to check out his Twitter and he has all sorts of languages up there, but Korean the most ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ even copied and pasted some comment about sex

9. [+19, -0] Looks like he just went around Twitter and copied and pasted whatever he thought looked funny

10. [+3, -0] He should just learn the language~ Hangeul gets harder the more and more you learn it but he should be able to get it down in a month if he's this interested in it

Jang Moon Bok shares his thoughts on the controversial topic of living with an s/o before marriage


Article: Jang Moon Bok "I think you should be free to live with your s/o before marriage"

Source: X Sports News via Nate

"There are young adults nowadays who choose to live with their s/os before marriage to lessen and share the financial burdens of living, but they have to endure the stigma of society. However, it's not illegal and I think that they should be free to do it if they want to."

* TN: Living with an s/o before marriage is looked down upon in Korean society because it's automatically assumed that you're having sex with that person and it's basically seen as a red flag for future partners who would prefer a "cleaner" past.

-

1. [+877, -167] I think it's a realistic option for couples but it just doesn't fit in with our conservative society

2. [+868, -98] There is not one person who can proudly say that they lived with someone before marriage, unless you're crazy

3. [+840, -62] Yeah but try telling that to anyone you end up marrying, they're not going to view it positively

4. [+65, -0] Having the freedom to do so is great but you need to accept the responsibilities that come with it too

5. [+65, -3] If it's considered a freedom, then why do people who live with other s/os end up hiding that when they find a new partner?

6. [+52, -1] You wanna know what the people who say living with your s/o before marriage is fine have in common: they never disclose that to their future partners

7. [+31, -1] I'm fine with people living together before marriage if you genuinely believe that you think this person is the one and you just want to experience what it's like living with them before going through with the marriage. However, I can't stand people who are living together only for the convenience of the sex and to save on motel costs.

8. [+27, -0] The problem is that men will have no problem living with other women until they get married and find out that their own wife has such a past and they flip out over it

9. [+27, -2] It's fine if the living situation ends up in marriage... but what man would be okay with finding out that his wife lived with another man for years before him?

10. [+22, -0] With freedom comes responsibility..

11. [+22, -0] I understand that it's logical but I still can't help but think that I don't want my own future partner to have such a past

12. [+20, -0] Go ahead and do it if you can tell your next partner that you lived with someone... but you'll have to know that there's a 99% chance they'll dump you once they find out

12. [+19, -8] I don't understand the stigma. Everyone in a relationship has sex together whether you live together or not. So why is that sex fine when you don't live together but suddenly you're a sl*t when you do live together? Couples who don't live together can still go have sex at motels or go on vacation together. And what about couples where one person is living alone? The other person is practically living there too anyway and having sex all night. People, you need to realize that couples who don't live together also have sex all the time. Just living together doesn't make you a bigger sl*t.

13. [+19, -3] Just give it about 20 years... when employment rates will be worse and people can't afford weddings anymore. Living together before marriage will be the norm... Western culture accepts it as perfectly normal, they don't consider people sl*tty at all.

14. [+14, -2] I think I'd be really disgusted if I found out my husband lived with someone before me

15. [+13, -0] Unfortunately, it's just something that can never be accepted by our society. There are more people who would break up after finding out about such a past than people who would be understanding of it.

16. [+12, -1] I'm in favor of living together after you've met each other's parents and gotten their permission
