SNSD caught performing over a live MR?


Article: SNSD gets caught with pre-recording? "Lip syncing when they're how many years into their career"

Source: Kukmin Ilbo via Nate

1. [+325, -45] Well what do you expect them to do when their singing never improves

2. [+287, -47] Didn't you know that lip syncing is a must for SM artists

3. [+250, -30] I was wondering why only Soshi was marked 'live MR', so that's what it means...

4. [+54, -20] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I like how fans defend everything by saying they're in "poor condition"... they lip synced because they were in poor condition... showed a bad mood on stage because she was in poor condition ㅋㅋ go get checked at the hospital then

5. [+51, -9] The 8 of them are dividing a song not even 4 minutes long... and taking out all of the times no one's singing, they're literally only singing for a moment each and fans are really going to use the condition excuse? If they're not talented enough to pull off their songs, they should consider that at the production level and produce a song that's easier for them to song... they're really just entertainment clowns, sigh

6. [+50, -14] How long have they been in the industry already... meanwhile Taeyeon shows her moodiness on stage and doesn't even smile

7. [+50, -18] Not like SNSD was ever known for their talent anyway

8. [+45, -22] They lip sync at their concerts too, nothing new

9. [+29, -6] They come from a company that calls lip syncing a genre, what do you expect...

10. [+26, -7] They can't even stand singing the few seconds their parts last so they pre-record it? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 8 of them divide a 4 minute song, I'm sure each of them barely get 10 seconds of singing time ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Amazing ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+237, -22] So basically they lip synced but pretended it was live...

2. [+219, -22] So half lip sync

3. [+146, -14] So what they did was put on a pre-recording of a live so that it looks like they're singing live.

4. [+33, -8] What's the point of even having 8 members...

5. [+32, -8] Meanwhile SISTAR, Tae Jin Ah, B2ST, A Pink, INFINITE are all MR.....

6. [+20, -8] I remember my uncle always telling me that singers pre-record themselves singing something live and sounding all out of breath so that they can play that and pretend they're singing live... I can't believe he was actually right ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+17, -3] On their 'Music Core' stage, it sounded like they had an MR on but their live singing was so unstable.... they're not what they used to be.

8. [+16, -3] Even if their singing has improved, it's not like any of their members can actually sing live other than Taeyeon.

9. [+14, -2] Maybe they felt pressured since they performed after SISTAR ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+11, -2] And yet they get away with making hundreds of thousands of dollars because fans will shield their moody attitude and everything~~!!

Upper class North Korean women become increasingly brand conscious



Article: "North Korean women become brand conscious... 'designer knock offs' also gain popularity"

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

1. [+340, -4] I don't think they've completely opened their eyes to fashion yet

2. [+314, -11] North and South... being born in the South is already being born lucky

3. [+219, -31] Who made up that saying that North Korean women are beautiful while South Korean men are handsome

4. [+20, -0] So I'm assuming the people in these pictures are the wealthy upper class of the North?

5. [+17, -3] While we have 'The Devil Wears Prada'... I guess the North Korean version would be 'The Daughter of a Party Officer Wears Prada'...

6. [+15, -1] These pictures look like my mom's old pictures from when she was younger

7. [+15, -2] Who made up that saying that North Korean women are pretty ㅡㅡ

8. [+11, -1] I bet they're all daughters of super high officials ㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+10, -3] Their fashion looks straight out of the '80s~ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+8, -1] The one wearing the hanbok looks the best... I don't think the rest have become completely fashion conscious yet.

Hyukoh gets into another plagiarism controversy


Article: Hyukoh gets into another plagiarism controversy... netizens 'abuzz'

Source: TV Report via Nate

Hyukoh - Panda Bear vs Beach Fossils - Golden Age

1. [+677, -102] People are trying so hard to bring them down now that they're popular ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+542, -96] Sounds like people are just trying to pick a fight

3. [+237, -41] People just can't stand someone doing well, can they

4. [+45, -20] Hyukoh has so much support from 'Infinity Challenge' fans that they can get away with plagiarizing now

5. [+38, -16] Obviously they keep getting into plagiarism controversies because they're copying other songs and acting like indie artists. Primary tried that same shit and got caught and crawled his way back home. Don't they dare talk about it being an homage instead of plagiarism.

6. [+34, -26] Just leave them alone... Koreans seriously can't stand anyone else doing well for once

7. [+28, -16] People always have to bring anyone doing well back down..

8. [+27, -13] I took a listen and they do really sound similar...

9. [+24, -9] People over at Naver Music pretty much agreed that it was plagiarized on a post that had 200,000 views ㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+23, -15] I guess they really are successful considering they can take a shit on their songs by plagiarizing and still get away with their fans supporting them ㅋㅋ

11. [+19, -8] Their fans are putting up infinite shields ㅋㅋ

12. [+18, -9] I seriously hate fans who shield them just because they're popular now

13. [+15, -7] They only feel the same, I don't think it's plagiarized

FNC, Cube, and more vy for a spot in the big 3


Article: From FNC to Cube, more companies aim to join the big 3

Source: ize via Naver

1. [+4,185, -362] I'd say the order goes SM, YG, JYP, and then Cube next

2. [+3,385, -371] Cube is far ahead in terms of talent and fandom size than FNC

3. [+2,965, -177] Cube needs to change up their promotional team staff... I miss Hong CEO ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

4. [+2,298, -241] Cube~~~~~~~~

5. [+1,344, -100] A lot of the companies have some amazing celebrities under them nowadays..

6. [+589, -31] This is honestly an embarrassing article for JYP as a company and their fans...

7. [+570, -35] It's always been Cube after the big 3... Cube's ahead of the rest

8. [+509, -52] It's Cube... B2ST, Rain, 4minute, A Pink, BtoB...

9. [+398, -28] I just wish Cube would fire their temporary CEO and bring back Hong Seung Sung CEO

10. [+352, -23] A Cube is also under Cube ㅋㅋ and A Pink is huge now so Cube is pretty far ahead

11. [+335, -36] Of course Cube

12. [+335, -37] I still remember people talking about Cube taking JYP's spot in the big 3 when JYP was in a crisis ㅋㅋㅋ with B2ST's comeback coming up, they're only going to get stronger

13. [+207, -9] FNC feels like the new rich while Cube has been consistently building themselves up with their line of artists and maturing all together. They just need a new promotional team.

14. [+182, -7] Hyuna probably has more of an impact than all of AOA put together

15. [+177, -8] SM, YG, JYP, and then Cube

16. [+196, -30] Singers: Cube or JYP, Variety: FNC, Acting: CJES

17. [+166, -3] SM, YG, JYP - Cube, Loen (Starship) ??

1. [+1,002, -371] The Japanese men are going to go crazy over them ㅋㅋ Girl's Day, hope they're successful... ㅋ

2. [+804, -323] 'Something' is probably my most favorite song by Girl's Day

3. [+700, -311] Girl's Day's best songs are 'Something' and 'Darling'! Find strength in Japan

4. [+604, -294] Heard they renewed their contracts with their agency. Their agency needs to be super good for them, seems Girl's Day has outgrown what they can do

5. [+334, -138] Congrats, wishing them luck~

6. [+167, -82] Always supporting them~

7. [+145, -76] Wow, congrats! Girl's Day fighting~

8. [+113, -53] Supporting Girl's Day

9. [+66, -26] I feel like 'Twinkle Twinkle' or 'Darling' would be a better fit for Japan. They usually prefer cuter concepts.
