Seo Taiji and the Kids were the trend at that time, and two of their backup dancers were late. So Joon Il performed as one of the back-up dancers… He’s really good at dancing. His house in LA was enormous. There was a dance practice room in the house. He liked to wear a white shirt and Dr. Marten dress shoes. Now he’s doing well in Florida.

KPOP NOW – Blind item of a rookie female singer who threw rice porridge at her manager


Blind item of a rookie female singer who threw rice porridge at her manager – K-POP, K-FANS

Blind item of a rookie female singer who threw rice porridge at her manager



A rookie female singer H is getting lots of criticisms for her arrogant behavior.
H went through a long period of being a trainee and many struggles. H is paranoid and believes that people around her are not treating her properly. Recently, H shared a waiting room with a famous sunbae I. H ordered her manager to buy her rice porridge. The manager brought her the rice porridge and told her carefully that she should eat a little fast since she was sharing the room with a sunbae. H then said, “Who are you to be ordering me around?!” and threw the rice porridge at the manager. Sunbae I, watching H raging hard, rolled his/her eyes and left the scene.





Article: Female singer gets a bunch of criticisms for throwing rice porridge at her manager in waiting room


Source: Newsen via Naver


1. [+18, -0] Who’s H?


2. [+8, -0] I always feel that a person’s main character is the most important… People like her are mostly influenced by their parents. I’m sure her parents are the same.


3. [+6, -0] Who is this sh*t-headed person? People like her should all be exposed.





Source: Pann


1. [+86, -49] Is she the one who is controversial because of her back-up dancers?
(tn: Somi)


2. [+82, -2] I don’t think it’s Chungha because Chungha debuted as a solo 3 years ago. 3 years is a bit too much to be called a rookie.


3. [+79, -11] Look at the expression “raging hard” ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It’s so easy to kill someone with a blind item.


4. [+44, -0] If this article is false, the journalist will be 100% sued. I doubt the journalist just wrote a bunch of bull. The journalist wrote the article because he had evidence.


5. [+31, -0] Trainee for a long time ㅋㅋㅋㅋ They revealed an important hint. But if it isn’t true, the journalist would be sued.

KPOP NOW – Pros and cons of upper floors and lower floors in high-rise apartments


Pros of upper floors: Nice views. Long sunshine which saves heating fees in winter. No noise.

Cons of upper floors: You’ll feel dizzy if you don’t like heights. You have to wait for the elevator. You’re hopeless if there’s an accident like fire.

Pros of lower floors (1~3): If there’s fire, you can just jump off of the building. You don’t have to wait for the elevator. You can escape quickly if there’s an earthquake.

Cons of lower floors: There could be lots of bugs or/and noises.

Pann: Pros and cons of upper floors and lower floors in apartments

1. [+124, -27] Upper floors are still better than lower floors.

2. [+112, -23] Upper floors: more expensive and sell well. Lower floors: cheap and don’t sell well.

3. [+111, -11] There’s another con of lower floors – thieves. Thieves and robbers have always been a problem. I remember hearing that a woman opened the window in evening and she was facing a guy who was climbing on a gas pipe. She screamed hard to get rid of him. I used to think these things didn’t happen at apartments and only at small buildings, but there are thieves that climb on the pipes to break in. I saw a footage of a thief climbing on the pipe all the way up to the 10th floor. Some thieves target floors that have lights off. If you live on lower floors, you have to beware.

4. [+63, -8] I’ve been living on the first floor for 4 years. It’s 100 times better than living on an upper floor. You just have to shut the blinds to block the people from seeing through. Outside of the window, I can see big trees and hear birds and rains, which is comforting. The view of the upper floor matters only if you care about it. I don’t have to wait for the elevator, I can just walk out to throw out the trash, and there aren’t that many bugs. The pros overweight the cons so I’m satisfied.

5. [+44, -4] If you live in a smoke-free apartment or a car-free apartment (all underground parking), lower floors don’t matter. I used to live on the 18th floor but moved to the first floor because of my kids, and I’m extremely satisfied. I haven’t seen any bug. When I open the curtains in the living room, it looks like a private garden because of all the trees. I was satisfied living on the upper floor but I think lower floors are more charming.

6. [+37, -8] These days, first floors are also expensive because families with kids prefer it.

7. [+30, -3] It’s my first time of living in an apartment (20th floor) after houses. I think upper floors are better. When I see complaints on the community board, all of them are from lower floors. I haven’t smelled any cigarettes and there’s no bug.

8. [+27, -1] What about this con? You don’t have much time to get ready for work or school. You leave and realize you forgot your umbrella or something, so you have to wait for the elevator to come back, which is stressful. This is why I prefer lower floors.

KPOP NOW – Feeling the ancient history of Egypt


Extinction of mammoths – 1000 years after the Pyramid was built

When the Pyramid was being built – Korea was just entering the Bronze Age

During the Roman Empire, the Pyramid was already an ancient relic

The period before the birth of Cleopatra is longer than the period between Cleopatra’s death ~ present day

The ancient kingdom of Egypt is divided by 3 ages. Each age is longer than the period of Three Kingdoms ~ Joseon in Korean history

Modern people: Wow, ancient people made that? Amazing!

People 1000 years ago: Wow, ancient people made that? Amazing!

People 2000 years ago: Wow, ancient people made that? Amazing!

People 3000 years ago: Wow, ancient people made that? Amazing!

People 4000 years ago: We have to make that? Us?

Pann: Feeling the history of Egypt

1. [+187, -0] How do Egyptians learn their history?

– [+87, -1] Do Egyptians also have to study their history to become public servants? They’ll go crazy after trying to memorize everything.

– [+12, -0] They must be dividing the history by every 1000 years

– [+16, -0] The Korean history textbook is divided by Part 1 and Part 2, but the Egyptians must have up to Part 8… Their long history aside, they have Mesopotamia, Persia, Greece, and Rome interacting historically, and there’s the war of religions… They must have so much to learn.

2. [+118, -2] So interesting ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Honestly, I believe the Pyramid was built by aliens.

3. [+89, -0] The last picture is so funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+59, -0] There are writings from the Roman Empire and they complain about how they get ripped off when they visit Egypt’s Pyramid. It was before the common era but the Egyptian remains were already considered ancient relics. Just like how we visit the Pyramid for a tour, the Romans also went to Egypt for a tour.

5. [+52, -0] How did they make that… Especially the pointy top… How did they built that???

6. [+45, -0] They’re really lucky to have amazing ancestors…

7. [+35, -1] The current Egypt isn’t the amazing ancient Egypt. Egypt was ruined and swapped with immigrants. The Egyptian population was either massacred or moved faraway. After that, other people took advantage of the empty land, who are the ancestors of the current Egyptians. They had nothing to do with the amazing ancient Egypt. They rode on a free ride.

8. [+32, -0] As time passes, the people also develop further but Egypt seems to be going backwards. I was so shocked when they were fixing the destroyed parts of the Pyramid by plastering.

9. [+28, -0] Greeks used to go to the Pyramid and said these lazy Egyptians were earning money off of their ancestors. Ironically, Greece is in that exact same situation right now.

10. [+28, -0] Is there a time machine? Or aliens must’ve made it. It’s just amazing.

KPOP NOW – Handsome Youtuber gets a sexual sponsor deal via Instagram DM


I’m contacting you because she wanted a really handsome one. A chaebol woman in her 30’s is willing to pay $20,000 for an overnight date + sex. Are you interested? The privacy will be protected for sure, and there’s the identity of the client, so you don’t have to worry about getting exposed. Usually, these paid dates range from $5,000 to $10,000. $20,000 is a rare offer to even celebrities. I believe it’s a deal that you won’t lose anything to. I’d appreciate it if you’re interested.

“A lot of people send me DMs, I don’t answer back but I read them. I’m posting this DM that I got today because even after blocking and reporting it, I was still upset. No matter how lonely you are, let’s try to live a clean life.” #Don’tWantItAtAll #RobotHasFeelingsToo

Pann: Instagram DM that a handsome Youtuber got today

1. [+110, -3] Girls also get those. I’m a non-celebrity in my 20’s and I got a DM like that. I felt disgusted. Horny idiots.

2. [+76, -0] A lot of people in their 20’s and 30’s pay money to have fun with pretty and handsome ones. Chaebols, professionals, well-known CEOs…



3. [+54, -1] If you read the comments on the post, you can spot jealous men ㅋㅋㅋㅋ They sound sarcastic and are like, “Everybody gets that” “It’s a spam” “I got one, too” “What kind of chaebol would contact like that?” “Embarrassing that he’s making a big fuss out of it” ㅋㅋㅋㅋ They don’t want to admit that he got the DM because he’s handsome. Ugly ones have a bad personality, too, ugh.


4. [+49, -1] Daebak, you get those if you’re handsome?


5. [+31, -0] If you agree to take the deal, they might use your agreement as a threat.


6. [+26, -0] $20,000 for one date, wow… How much money does she have?


7. [+14, -0] Isn’t he the Youtuber who was preparing to become a policeman?


8. [+13, -0] It might be fake. If he replied and said yes, they could’ve taken a screenshot of it and spread it to ruin his image.

He was busy playing around instead of feeding me and making me sleep.”

KPOP NOW – You’re not supposed to throw out unused pills in the trash?


You’re not supposed to throw out unused pills in the trash? – K-POP, K-FANS

You’re not supposed to throw out unused pills in the trash?



Pann: Don’t throw out pills in the trash


1. [+256, -4] I collected unused pills and took them to the pharmacy, but they told me they just toss them into the trash. The pharmacy was wrong, right?


2. [+240, -11] This is true. My household collects expired pills and takes them to the pharmacy to get rid of them. If you throw them away in the trash, it will pollute the environment seriously. Things like antibiotics and steroids will melt into the nature and it takes a very long time to be neutralized. And the pharmacy will get their points increased if they trash pills correctly… It’s also good for the pharmacy so make sure to take expired pills to them~


3. [+170, -4] Oh, I didn’t know.


4. [+148, -0] Things like this should be publicized in public advertisements. It’s directly related to environmental pollution. Like how we separate batteries and oils when we trash, separating pills should also become a norm.


5. [+133, -1] The pharmacists are supposed to explain this when they sell the pills but I’ve never had any pharmacist explaining this to me. There’s only a trash bin for pills in the corner of the pharmacy. Even the top comment says the pharmacists toss them into the trash ㅋㅋㅋ


6. [+104, -1] I knew this. I used to work part-time at a pharmacy. Whenever someone brought unused pills, the pharmacist swore so much after and complained that people were making him do extra work. The pharmacist I worked for was the worst one.


7. [+86, -1] This type of information should be displayed at the pharmacy. I didn’t know ㅋㅋ


8. [+77, -2] I’ve never heard of this. Why don’t they promote things like this?


9. [+65, -2] I used to work at a pharmacy and the pharmacist hated it whenever people brought pills to trash. Sometimes, the pharmacist re-used the pills.


10. [+59, -3] I don’t trust the pharmacy because they might recycle the pills.


11. [+42, -0] I brought them to the pharmacy but the pharmacist was annoyed and told me I didn’t have to bring them. Since then, I’ve been tossing them into the trash. Was I supposed to report the pharmacist?


12. [+41, -0] I also learned this in an English comprehension question. The antibiotics will go into the river and the organisms start consuming the antibiotics. Eventually, the humans who are at the top of the pyramid will consume a large amount of the antibiotics.


13. [+39, -0] I’ve seen this on TV before. If pills are thrown in the trash and they end up at a landfill, the pills will melt into the soil. Then the animals will consume the plants grown from the soil and it goes on…


14. [+36, -0] A pharmacist on Youtube said it’s not mandatory for pharmacists, it’s up to the pharmacist whether to take unused pills or not. It’s better to call beforehand to check if they’ll take them.
