Siwon snaps a photo with Cha Eunwoo & Kang Daniel



Pann: Photo of Cha Eunwoo-Kang Daniel-Choi Siwon


1. [+251, -28] Cha Eunwoo killed them all.


2. [+186, -63] Don’t feed the troll.


3. [+182, -165] Kang Daniel looks cute ㅋㅋㅋ


4. [+100, -21] What’s with Kang Daniel’s face?


5. [+85, -103] Don’t feed the troll.


6. [+85, -11] Cha Eunwoo is about 183cm tall yet his height seems so different from Kang Daniel. I don’t think Kang Daniel is even 180cm.


7. [+77, -11] The comments are so funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Kang’s delusional fans.


8. [+73, -14] Kang Daniel needs to lose more weight.


9. [+65, -14] One of them has facial features that look incomplete.


10. [+63, -5] How is this a troll ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It’s just that Cha Eunwoo is too handsome.


11. [+63, -3] Why is this a troll? Is there something wrong with it?


12. [+56, -16] Choi Siwon debuted more than 10 years ago but he’s still handsome with well-defined features… Eunwoo too, of course… The other person is um…


13. [+47, -16] Kang Daniel is so ugly.


14. [+42, -10] Kang Daniel looks like an ajussi.


15. [+35, -11] Cha Eunwoo >>>>>> Choi Siwon >>>>>>>>>>>>> Four letters.

KPOP NOW – Complex Korean age system – K-POP, K-FANS


Complex Korean age system – K-POP, K-FANS

Complex Korean age system



Age of Kim Eun Song who was born in January, 1991


Social age: 30
– She went to school with those born in 1990 because early birthdays (January~March) enter school a year earlier


Korean age: 29
– 1-year-old as soon as you’re born, you age every new year


Yearly age: 28
– Year she was born~current year


Legal (international) age: 27 (assuming that her birthday hasn’t passed yet this year)
– Born with the age of 0, you age on your birthday





Pann: Something that only exists in Korea in the world


1. [+126, -2] Let’s use the legal age. I want to be younger…


2. [+126, -2] I thought they were changing the age system this year? Why are they so quiet?


3. [+94, -3] Why is our country the only one doing this? I don’t get it.


4. [+62, -0] Our country is the only one where a baby born on December 31 will be two-years-old in just two days. So stupid.


5. [+35, -0] If we were to use the legal age, we have to get rid of the titles of hyung/noona/unnie/oppa, we have to call them by (name)-ssi only ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Imagine a legal 26-year-old and a 25-year-old agreeing on how to address each other, and then the 25-year-old’s birthday passes and they become the same age. Then what?


6. [+32, -0] Our country can never use the legal age because of the titles like unnie/oppa ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Even if they’re born in the same year, they’ll have to consider their birthdays ㅋㅋㅋ


7. [+29, -2] I didn’t realize how serious the age system was until I heard that Bentley was 3-years-old at 15 months.


8. [+22, -0] Can we please switch to the legal age?

KPOP NOW – Phone call anxiety? – K-POP, K-FANS


Phone call anxiety? – K-POP, K-FANS

Phone call anxiety?

Pann: I thought I was the only one who did this


When someone you don’t know well calls you – you mute the phone and ignore the call
When someone you know well calls you – you contemplate for a moment, ignore the call, and text them “Why did you call me?”
When you end up answering the call – You don’t know what to say and you’re too lazy to answer. When the call drags on, you put it on speaker and browse Facebook and talk lamely. After hanging up, you think, “Ah, talking to someone on the phone is so awkward.”





1. [+329, -278] Is this a new mental illness?


2. [+321, -62] I even avoid calling my close friends… Please don’t call me, it’s so awkward.


3. [+267, -32] It’s so me… I feel like it’s a waste of time because I don’t know how long the phone call will be.


4. [+152, -10] I hate it when I’m on the phone with my friend while I’m busy and my friend is on their way to home, and they hang up as they reach home.


5. [+97, -149] Why are so many people mental? This must be the result of not learning basic manners at a young age. People like them have no social skills.


6. [+95, -4] I thought this was talking about me.


7. [+77, -8] Wow, I actually find phone calls more comfortable. I talk more on the phone than in person. During school break, I used to talk to my friend for 2 hours at night everyday ㅋㅋㅋㅋ The friend got charged over $50 for phone bills.


8. [+75, -2] Me… I even hate calling my close friends.


9. [+61, -1] There’s no way I can get a boyfriend. I see couples posting screenshots of calling their significant other for an hour on Facebook. How do they do that? I wanted to set a record like that in middle school, so I asked my friend to help and we did set a record. We just did our own things on the phone without saying anything.


10. [+55, -1] Agreed ㅋㅋㅋㅋ If it’s from a number I don’t know, I don’t answer the call. I’d text them “Who is this?” and save their number on Katalk to see their profile picture.


11. [+49, -40] It’s puberty.


12. [+41, -1] Phone call anxiety is real. I also mute the phone and don’t answer the call. After a couple of hours, I’d text, “Sorry, I was busy and couldn’t answer.” I really hate phone calls, please don’t call me.


13. [+33, -21] This place is full of outsiders.


14. [+31, -0] But texting would take 30 minutes whereas a phone call would take 2 minutes.


15. [+28, -6] This is a little… I think your social skills are very lacking. You can’t avoid phone calls forever. I think it’s something you should fix.

KPOP NOW – SM to debut a new girl group & boy group next year


SM to debut a new girl group & boy group next year – K-POP, K-FANS

SM to debut a new girl group & boy group next year



Q) The results weren’t good in the second quarter of the year. What are the plans for the second half of the year and next year?


SM) For this year, our agency’s projects are all crammed into the second half of the year. The total physical sales were 1.4M in the first half, and we surpassed that amount in just July~August. After EXO and TVXQ release their full albums in the second half, there won’t be a problem in the annual earnings. For next year, we will debut a new boy group and a new girl group.





Pann: SM to debut a new girl group & boy group next year


1. [+66, -2] I think the girl group will have a lot of members like SNSD. The current trainees are known to be so-so but I’m sure they’re hiding some unofficial ones. I think the boy group will be NCT.


2. [+64, -2] NCT127 is still a 2nd tier… and they’re debuting another boy group? I’m really curious whether they’re getting their hands off of NCT project or launching a new one into it.


3. [+42, -3] Why don’t they use the effort to push EXO instead? The year’s coming to an end, what have they been doing? No wonder why they’re not getting good results.


4. [+28, -0] I think it’ll be a new fixed team for NCT Dream.


5. [+19, -0] “No problem with the earnings since EXO and TVXQ will release full albums”… Our kids became the official money grabs.


6. [+19, -1] Crazy, aren’t the current female trainees so-so?


7. [+15, -9] The boy group is NCT for sure. I hope the girl group is pretty and hard-working kids. Red Velvet is such a mess. I hope they pick fine kids who suit SM’s reputation. There isn’t a male idol that had a controversy for lack of effort, Red Velvet is the only one.


8. [+15, -0] I think the boy group is NCT’s new unit? SM calls Super M a rookie group, too.

KPOP NOW – Park Bogum’s photoshoot for male autumn fashion


Pann: Male fashion that will be very popular during fall

1. [+149, -3] Face isn’t fashion

2. [+85, -79] Can someone cut handsome Bogum’s hair?

3. [+65, -2] Face and body complete fashion.

4. [+33, -1] It’s Park Bogum…

5. [+23, -1] His face did everything.

6. [+19, -0] If a non-celebrity did this hairstyle, he’d look really greasy.

7. [+18, -0] I didn’t notice what he was wearing because I was busy looking at his face.

8. [+14, -0] Yes, Park Bogum looks amazing.

9. [+8, -0] Am I the only one who likes Park Bogum with long hair?

10. [+8, -2] I love this long hairstyle ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Am I the only who finds it sexy?

KPOP NOW – Would you want to be an idol?


Would you want to be an idol? – K-POP, K-FANS

Would you want to be an idol?

Pann: Honestly, it’d be fun to be an idol


1. [+716, -7] I really envy that they have photos of themselves at the prettiest age with the fanciest styling.


2. [+355, -3] I want to do a concert the most. Seeing all the audience cheering for me and liking my stage that I’ve prepared would be so much fun.


3. [+324, -2] I envy that living the fancy life for 10 years would give them enough money and experience to prepare for the second stage of life in their 30’s.


4. [+148, -2] Honestly, I’m a homebody so I have no such thing as private life or a crush on someone. I can never understand the things that people talk about as disadvantages of being an idol. I think they’re all more than tolerable.


5. [+120, -1] There isn’t any job that isn’t hard. It’s true that idols have to watch their actions but if I had a chance, I’d be one. It brings a lot of money and after years and losing popularity, a dating news won’t affect you that much. I’ll just live my life with the money I earned.


6. [+107, -88] Even when I’m tired or in a bad condition, I always have to smile at people and do everything. I think it’ll be really sh*tty. I even have to smile and hold hands with ugly people.


7. [+59, -0] To us, being an idol seems really fun but to the idols, it’s an everyday life… I envy them…


8. [+55, -0] I’m an attention seeker so I’d want to be one. It’d be hard but it also brings a lot of money.


9. [+52, -0] You’re guaranteed to debut in big 3 after 5 years of training. Upvote if you’d do, downvote if you don’t.


10. [+50, -3] When idols get asked if they’d want to be an idol again in their next life, almost all of them say yes. I want to be an idol, too.


11. [+46, -0] I think it’s a matter of personality. People like Kim Heechul are very suitable to be celebrities. The kind of people who bottle up their emotions, introverted, and private won’t do well as celebrities.

Front shots of sparrows



Pann: Front shots of sparrows


1. [+184, -3] They’re cute but they look like ajummas that nag all the time ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ


2. [+142, -1] I could never see their faces because they’re so tiny and fast ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Hello


3. [+82, -1] Angry bird


4. [+36, -0] They look determined even before they speak ㅋㅋㅋ


5. [+31, -2] I’m flustered because this is very different from the image I thought.


6. [+28, -0] Their feathers must be fat from the cold weather ㅋㅋㅋ Why so mad


7. [+24, -1] They look really stubborn.


8. [+17, -1] So cute ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Animals are love.


9. [+13, -0] They’re wearing black blusher.


10. [+12, -0] Serious and cute.

KPOP NOW – Which group of shops would you choose to have near your home?


The group you choose will be reachable from your home within 1 minute. The other group will be 30 minutes far.

Group 1: Starbucks, Mom’s Touch (chicken & burger), Dunkin Donuts, Tous Les Jours (bakery), LOHBS (beauty store), Subway

Group 2: Angel in-us (coffee shop), Daiso (dollar store), Olive Young (beauty store), Paris Baguette (bakery), Burger King, Baskin Robbins

Pann: If these shops were to be made within 1-minute distance from your home, which group would you pick?

1. [+284, -31] 2222222

2. [+178, -13] Definitely 1.

3. [+113, -15] 1111111

4. [+43, -6] Isn’t it obviously 1? Daiso and Olive Young are a must but you could buy their stuff in hoards so I think it’s fine to have them 30 minutes away. You could just go to LOHBS if it’s emergency. Starbucks is the best cafe and Subway and Dunkin are good to have nearby for meals. Angel-in-us is so inconsistent. Mom’s Touch has more selections and are better than Burger King. Tous Les Jours and Paris Baguette are pretty much the same. You can drop by Baskin Robbins while going to Olive Young or Daiso. I hate myself for being serious about this…

5. [+24, -0] At a glance, I’d choose 1 but 2 is more comfortable to have near your place. Daiso, Paris Baguette, and Baskin Robbins need to be around your place so that you can go to them in slippers.

6. [+20, -1] 2222222 Everything aside, there’s no substitute for Baskin Robbins.

7. [+18, -0] It’s 2 for sure but not Angel-in-us ㅋㅋ

8. [+12, -0] 2 just for the Burger King.

Pann: Non-celebrities pretend to be Bigbang at the airport

1. [+318, -7] GD one is so funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+288, -9] If you’ve liked Bigbang, you’d know that the truly detailed one is TOP, not GD ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Honestly, GD’s gestures are well-known and the second gif is overdoing it ㅋㅋㅋㅋ The person who imitated TOP did the best observation. But the way GD stretches his arms and the way he dresses is on point.

3. [+224, -8] Why is this so funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+163, -8] What’s this ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Daesung one really looks like him.

5. [+140, -2] The way he imitates GD is so well-done ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He’s so detailed.

6. [+127, -3] TOP f*ck ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Did they pick a random person and cover him up because they couldn’t find a lookalike ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He looks like he’s just starting to learn how to walk.

7. [+104, -2] GD is overdoing it but the TOP ons is so real ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Angled shoulders and arms, big steps ㅋㅋ The way he tilts his head is an amazing detail.

8. [+90, -2] TOP is crazy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+60, -3] I’m an ex-VIP and this is insane ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Daesung looks real and TOP is so similar. GD ㅋㅋㅋㅋ They caught Seungri’s arrogant vibe, too ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+55, -2] Wait, this isn’t Bigbang? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
