KPOP NOW – Sajaegi scandal on Pann: Boramiyu, Cube CEO, EXO, Ben, etc


Melon chart

1) Boramiyu

2) Taeyeon

3) Noeul

4) Vibe

5) HYNN

Pann: A rookie artist who beat Taeyeon

1. [+516, -4] Seriously, “Who Are You?”

2. [+334, -14] Ugh… So annoying how she’s targeting Taeyeon.

3. [+305, -3] Machine?

4. [+201, -0] It’s not just Taeyeon’s new song, she’s beating Taeyeon and Frozen ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+166, -0] Why the hell would people listen to Boramiyu instead of Frozen+Taeyeon in this season ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+99, -3] When I listened to Boramiyu’s I Wanna Hate You, she wasn’t famous and I wished she’d become popular in the future. I’m not happy to see that she’s ending up doing sajaegi.

“Digital sajaegi must be rooted out. Cheering for you. Find strength.”

Pann: Cube CEO is also supporting Park Kyung

1. [+262, -1] At this rate, isn’t it obvious that everybody is saying those artists did sajaegi? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It must be true since everybody is targeting them.

2. [+223, -7] As someone who stanned B2ST and 4Minute, Cube can never do sajaegi because they’re a listed company. I can never forget the fans of big 3 who would always do sajaegi and bash the both groups when they won #1. Cube fans never asked to be included in the big 3, it was other people doing it to bring hate ㅋㅋ There’s no solution when you’re associated with big 3.

3. [+74, -100] Cube?

4. [+71, -0] Cube might not do their job properly but they don’t mess around with music.

5. [+63, -0] If Cube did sajaegi, Pentagon and CLC would be charting in by now.

6. [+61, -0] There’s a reason why insiders are claiming the same thing except those artists.


Pann: Number of first listeners for EXO

1. [+279, -3] How can Ben have 60K listeners when EXO has 56K ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+250, -25] Why are people calling it flop? They’ve been around for 8 years, a top group for 7 years, and it has 3 members missing. Isn’t it a success, then?

3. [+199, -15] You guys must be thinking EXO hasn’t been around for long but it’s their 8th year ㅋㅋ It doesn’t include 3 members and they had a lot of controversies, isn’t it successful enough?

Ravi: “I thought my friends were idols but they were Lee Sedol”

(tn: He means that EXO is beating other machine-streamed songs)

Pann: VIXX Ravi targets sajaegi on Instagram

1. [+29, -0] So refreshing

2. [+14, -0] So straight-forward ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+6, -0] I’m an EXO-L, thank you Ravi-nim.

Pann: Teaching machines a good lesson

(Pann talks about how the public is also streaming idol songs to take down sajaegi songs.)

1. [+130, -1] It’s so funny how non-fans and idol fans used to fight all the time but are now uniting because of sajaegi. We’re Koreans to the bone… We can’t stand injustice.

2. [+80, -6] I’m a non-fan but I want to stream EXO to bomb the machines.

3. [+18, -1] I’m an Army and I’m also streaming Obsession ㅋㅋ Kill the sajaegis.

4. [+17, -0] I really hate EXO (sorry to the fans but I’ve seen so many bad fans), I don’t like IU, and I haven’t even watched Frozen but I’m participating to take down the sajaegis. I hope it all charts within top 10!


Paul Kim’s concert (sold out)

Ben’s concert (594 seats & 492 seats available)

Pann: Did you see the difference between Paul Kim and Ben’s concerts

1. [+75, -0] Are machines going to be sitting on the empty seats?

2. [+37, -0] Wow, I want to go to Paul Kim’s concert

3. [+33, -0] Hul

4. [+17, -0] At this rate, Ben could hold her concert in a big van.

KPOP NOW – Eun Jiwon wears a flight attendant uniform


Pann: Eun Jiwon wears a flight attendant uniform

1. [+129, -9] He might have a funny image on TV but he has his unique sleekness ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+94, -5] I have no interest in Eun Jiwon but he really is handsome… His variety image is an immature kid but when he dresses up, he’s handsome.

3. [+72, -9] Original first generation idol.

4. [+35, -18] Drunk driving twice, filtered out.

5. [+33, -18] Next drunk driver, please.

6. [+25, -0] He looked sleepy on New Journey to the West ㅋㅋ He looks so handsome in the first picture and in side profile. Is this how he looks in real life?

7. [+18, -8] Do you really want to cheer for someone who did drunk driving twice?

8. [+18, -2] It’s like seeing a crush who always wears baggy clothes and plays soccer, but then one day he dresses up for a school trip.

9. [+17, -13] Filtering out YG.

10. [+16, -1] How can he look even younger?

KPOP NOW – Broadcasting law to ban celebrities with criminal records proposed


Article: ‘Lee Soo Geun exiled from the broadcast?’ Broadcasting law to ban celebrities with criminal records proposed

Source: Xports News via Nate

1. [+4908, -36] It’ll be a thanos law if it also includes drunk driving ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Half of the celebrities will be gone.

2. [+4312, -109] Those with drunk driving should also be banned.

3. [+4243, -80] I support it.

4. [+448, -2] Please also propose a law to ban politicians with criminal records.

5. [+415, -4] Politicians should be banned in the same way, then. I’m sure there are more politicians with criminal records?

6. [+326, -14] I think Lee Soo Geun is one of the funniest celebrities but I completely support this law!!

1. [+783, -34] Please ban Bigbang.

2. [+512, -8] “Punishment of imprisonment or above”… They should be banned as long as they were convicted guilty. There are so many cases with probation these days.

3. [+468, -47] Sexual harassment should also be included.

4. [+109, -2] Can they ban Lee Soo Geun first who raped a woman with his manager? Why are people stanning this a$$hole?

5. [+68, -2] Once Jung Joon Young has a successful comeback, people will be like, “It’s fine now~” Even now there are people supporting him ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+67, -0] Isn’t there a criminal in every variety show these days? I don’t want to see them yet they keep crawling out ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+47, -4] YG please

8. [+40, -0] School bullying, too

KPOP NOW – Ahn Jae Hyun sweats when asked about Goo Hye Sun at drama press conference


Ahn Jae Hyun sweats when asked about Goo Hye Sun at drama press conference – K-POP, K-FANS

Ahn Jae Hyun sweats when asked about Goo Hye Sun at drama press conference



Pann: Ahn Jae Hyun’s reaction when asked about Goo Hye Sun


1. [+341, -12] Isn’t that a panic attack?


2. [+284, -14] Why are they asking about his private life at a drama press conference? If they’re curious, they should ask him personally instead. I feel so bad for him.


3. [+181, -32] I feel so bad for Ahn Jae Hyun ㅠㅠ I hope he finds strength and becomes happy.


4. [+97, -5] I was shocked when I read that Goo Hye Sun said “your whole life is depressing”, imagine how hurt he was.


5. [+84, -2] If he’s sweating, that it must be a serious trauma… I was bullied before. So when I read about bullying, my body shivers of fear.


6. [+82, -4] Ahn Jae Hyun never sweated even when he was in Vietnam and Hong Kong during summer on New Journey to the West. I feel so bad for him…


7. [+63, -2] Goo Hye Sun’s words on depression was legendary. I feel so bad when I see bashing comments towards him on Naver.


8. [+62, -54] I really hate Goo Hye Sun. How can she just damage someone with lies like that? Now there are ajummas in their 30’s and 40’s bashing Ahn Jae Hyun.

KPOP NOW – Yuna Kim with American style makeup


Pann: Kim Yuna with American style makeup


1. [+501, -2] She looks like an Asian student who’s good at math in American dramas… That’s too much.


2. [+463, -6] She looks just like Park Jung Hyun.


3. [+297, -11] Stereotypical Asian. I heard that gyopos and Korean-Americans wear that kind of gyopo makeup on purpose because they don’t want to look Korean. Is this true? It looks so 90’s to me.


4. [+206, -2] That’s not the image we have for Asian women but in the West, they always seem to push that image.

5. [+103, -2] She looks the prettiest with Korean makeup.

6. [+79, -1] That’s such a stereotypical makeup. Making eyes and lips look small and making cheekbones stand out.

7. [+68, -2] Maybe it’s because Americans like to look fierce, but their makeup is too much for delicate Asian features ㅋㅋ

8. [+62, -0] I expected this kind of makeup.

KPOP NOW – Top 5 digital sales of girl groups this year + new boy groups aren’t doing well?


Top 5 digital sales of girl groups this year + new boy groups aren’t doing well? – K-POP, K-FANS

Top 5 digital sales of girl groups this year + new boy groups aren’t doing well?



Pann: Top 5 digital sales of girl groups this year


1. [+89, -4] I read a post that talked about ICY and Twice flopping hard ㅋㅋㅋ JYP girl groups have good public recognition and there are a lot of anticipations for their digital sales. They get hate for no reason.


2. [+71, -6] Dalla Dalla is so good, I still listen to it.


3. [+66, -3] Itzy should win a rookie award.


4. [+46, -3] I personally find Feel Special to be Twice’s best song. It’s classy.


5. [+39, -1] There was a troll who kept saying that Twice was flopping but they did well digitally on a chart full of ballad songs and their physical sales are big, too. What flop?


6. [+33, -19] Of course, I was the only one who was boycotting Blackpink.


7. [+32, -1] All those groups are amazing and their songs are great. Stop trolling.


8. [+30, -16] On the current Melon chart of top 100, Dalla Dalla, Fancy, ICY, and Feel Special are the only girl group songs there. JYP girl groups are amazing.


9. [+29, -1] JYP for girl groups.


10. [+26, -10] Blackpink was the real flop yet people were bashing JYP girl groups.





Pann: How did the boy group industry of K-pop flop like this?


1st gen: Super Junior, TVXQ, etc
2nd gen: Bigbang, B2ST, 2PM, 2AM, B1A4, Infinite, SHINee, etc.
3rd gen: BTS, Wanna One, EXO
4th gen: X1, NCT, TXT(?)


1. [+378, -14] I think it’s because of Produce 101. The show messed up the idol industry.


2. [+266, -27] At least NCT and TXT are doing well. And it’s because the core fans are stuck in the 1st tier groups. Unless they change, the fourth generation won’t come.


3. [+198, -3] It’ll happen eventually. The reason why we don’t see the next generation is because the peak time of the current generation is long.


4. [+78, -1] For NCT, NCT Dream is getting good results but the team isn’t a fixed one ㅋㅋㅋㅋ They won’t get popular unless they change the format. They change the members as soon as the fandom starts to be formed, f*ck…


5. [+74, -1] Honestly, BTS and EXO aren’t declining any time soon. It’s amazing.


6. [+61, -0] It was so fun and messy during EXO vs. BTS vs. Wanna One.


7. [+51, -2] Leave NCT alone. Who are you to be talking about NCT like that as if you’re an expert of K-pop?


8. [+43, -7] If SM stops with their rotation system and debut a proper group, they’ll easily dominate the scene. The first gen, second gen, and third gen all have SM groups.

KPOP NOW – Hyuna’s gifts for her fans


“I missed you a lot. I’ll work hard. See you often <3”

Pann: Wow, did you see Hyuna’s gifts for her fans?

1. [+153, -3] Those who say the gifts are sponsored – if they’re sample products, you could say they’re sponsored but the gifts are full products. She paid her own money for it. A singer is thinking for her fans, why are you ignoring her effort? I saw a lot of offensive comments with Sunmi and Yubin as well. Idols like Suzy and Hyuna have been with their fans for a long time and their bond is stronger, that’s why they give expensive gifts to their fans like that. She said she was sorry that this was all she could do for the fans who were cheering for her for a long time with their own money. Can’t you just see this positively?

2. [+90, -0] When she pays back to her fans, she does it right.

3. [+88, -0] Is this possible? It looks like a few hundred dollars.

4. [+60, -0] It’s not just a couple of products. If it’s that much, she paid her own money. Maybe she got discounts but what sponsored products? People just want to downplay it. The gifts aside, the letter is the real gift. The fans must’ve felt touched.

5. [+46, -0] Even if they’re sponsored, it’s a huge scale. A lot of singers don’t even give gifts to their fans.

6. [+32, -0] Whether they’re sponsored or not, the effort itself is amazing enough ㅋㅋ You all go crazy when a boy group buys ice cream but you say it’s sponsored when a female idol gives expensive products.

7. [+27, -3] I see boy groups giving smoothies and cream bread and then I see this, I’m having a realization ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+27, -6] Jennie also gave Hera pact and promised a bigger one next time. Female idols are very good at repaying their fans.

9. [+19, -0] She also gave a photo blanket and a Clriden sweatshirt. It must be worth being her fan.

10. [+18, -0] She also gave a coupon that lets you exchange for a different color.

KPOP NOW – Hollywood dump – Kristen Stewart, Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, Keanu Reeves, Johnny Depp


Article: Kristen Stewart, “I thought of marrying Robert Pattinson… I thought he’d be my last lover”

Source: Sports Choson via Nate

1. [+924, -20] What, she’s the one who cheated on him and caused the breakup ㅡㅡ

2. [+774, -20] She’s the one who had an affair with a married man and broke up.

3. [+643, -14] What nonsense is this. They broke up because it was her fault.

4. [+23, -0] She was so pretty during Twilight ㅠㅠ

5. [+21, -1] She thought about marrying so she dated a married man…



Article: Angelina Jolie mentions Brad Pitt, “We can’t go live overseas because he’s a father of kids”

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+467, -14] Jolie is such a responsible person. She treats her adopted children like her biological children and raise them well. As an actress and a parent, she’s admirable!

2. [+367, -5] She cares for her kids a lot. Most people would consider their wants first.

3. [+285, -7] Jolie used to be one of the biggest b*tches in Hollywood. Ever since adopting Maddox, she changed as a person and so did her life. Thanks to Jolie, adopting became a trend in Hollywood. She travelled around the world for relief activities and influenced Hollywood in many ways. She always voices her opinions for human rights.



Article: Britney takes a shocking selca in bikini… Importance of self-care

Source: Herald via Nate

1. [+344, -6] I can’t believe she’s not even 40… She’s been promoting since I was little.

2. [+198, -27] Her skin’s pretty bad, though?

3. [+155, -6] She seems to be living well with young, handsome boyfriends ㅎㅎ



Article: Keanu Reeves goes public with his 46-year-old girlfriend after 10 years

Source: Star News via Nate

1. [+1409, -52] Hyung, I hope you stop your homeless life, meet someone nice, and live a happy life!

2. [+1166, -8] I can’t believe Keanu Reeves is in his 50’s already.

3. [+1055, -16] As long as Keanu hyung is happy.

4. [+90, -4] Keanu Reeves never lived a homeless life. He lived at a hotel for some time because he preferred it over his own place. He has a gypsy-like personality and hangs out with non-celebrities, so he got a lot of photos taken. He never lived like homeless. In other countries, people call him homeless as a joke only.

5. [+50, -2] Ha, he’s wasting his handsome face ㅠㅠㅠ



Article: Johnny Depp confirmed to comeback in ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ despite his endless scandals

Source: Star News via Nate

1. [+150, -21] “There has even been a rumor of him lobbying the executives just to stop Amber Heard from appearing in ‘Aquaman’. With his numerous controversies, there were rumors of him stepping down from ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’.” He’s a total trash. I’m shocked. His character and acting are essential for Fantastic Beasts but I can’t believe he’s just going to comeback as if nothing happened.

2. [+127, -36] I can’t imagine Grindelwald without Johnny Depp.

3. [+77, -9] People call Fantastic Beasts a flop, but the series aren’t bad if you watch it after the Harry Potter series. I used to have the same prejudice but Newton Scamander is actually a charming character and I like Jude Law as Dumbledore. This movie will also have several more coming and there will be some that aren’t as good as the other ones. But as a continuing series, it’s pretty fun to watch. The second one was good so I’m anticipating the third one.

KPOP NOW – Super M becomes global ambassadors of Korean Air


Pann: Super M becomes global ambassadors of Korean Air

1. [+153, -19] Of course, the models have to be handsome ones.

2. [+140, -32] Seeing how Korean Air appoints them as global ambassadors, Super M must be doing very well. They’ve been charting on Billboard 200 for 4 weeks straight.

3. [+126, -49] Expecting “that” fandom to come and downvote this post.

4. [+54, -6] No matter how much you claim this group to be a bubble, SM’s stocks skyrocketed since their billboard results, they signed a contract with CAA, filmed a Korean Air CF, and are charting on billboard for 4 weeks. I can’t believe how the top comments have been calling them a bubble ㅋㅋ People can’t stand others doing well.

5. [+45, -6] What’s with people that say they have no popularity? Super M might be lacking in popularity because they’re new as a group but they’re EXO, SHINee, and NCT. NCT doesn’t have popularity in Korea but they’re doing well overseas. I’m not a fan of the three groups but I’m commenting because I don’t agree that they don’t have popularity.

6. [+43, -6] This is a true definition of a country and a welfare. So handsome.

7. [+41, -0] From now on, all foreigners who get on Korean Air in Korea will watch Super M’s video before the plane takes off ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It’s been a trend of foreign airlines where celebrities and movie characters appear in flight instructional videos. I guess Korean Air decided to take up on the trend as well. Daebak.

8. [+39, -3] Of course, idols are all about face. They’re talented as well.
