There is a documentary about K-pop made through YouTube Originals. The premiere episode for the installment series was posted on the 31st for free, anyone can watch it. 

They introduce the representative singer of K-pop in this order “SuperM→Blackpink→BTS,” are they serious ㅋㅋ? From that alone I knew it was a joke. 

YouTube Original caption: “K-pop super group ‘Super M’ gets nominated for a Grammy Award

????When the truth is they’ve never even ranked on the Top 200 Billboard? 

This is a video that was posted two days ago announcing BTS as the Grammy candidate and performer. 

But BTS’ intro is too short compared to SuperM and the BGM (background music) is SuperM’s Jopping???

As they talk about Billboard’s Grammy predictions, they never once mention BTS, the first K-pop artist to be nominated for a Grammy even though at the end of the video they share cuts of BTS from the Grammy award ceremony.

Super M 1:10-1:25 (stage video, members behind the scenes, etc.)
Black Pink 1:26-1:30 (stage video, MV video, etc.) Talk show appearance, etc.)
BTS 1:31-1:34 (2 members make an appearance per above pic)

The only one to Asian artist to get nominated for a Grammy is BTS. They’re the first K-artist to attend Billboard Awards and went there 4 years in a row and performed there 3 times.  

As expected, comments from foreign fans are already overflowing saying “SM paved the way” ㅋㅋ.

+ This is the history of K-pop you’re talking about so why is Red Velvet even coming out there…? And then SuperM gets shown last too…seriously this is just ㅋㅋ

++ And this Melon comment…what the f*** is this logic. Please get yourself examined ㅋㅋ

  1. [+410, -18] This is a bit embarrassing especially knowing American fans are going to see this,,,
  2. [+345, -14] SM is probably bitter and feels like its so unfair. That’s why they’re doing thisㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  3. [+319, -17] Well this is SM, they’re always like this.
  4. [+168, -10] SM goes around pretending like they don’t care about BTS and don’t feel inferior to themㅋㅋㅋ but in reality they want Grammy so bad that they’d resort to thisㅉㅉ so ugly of them
  5. [+146, -2] This is a bit ridiculous even as an ARMY. If SM knew of this and did nothing and still pushed their singers there then they deserve the hate they’re getting. I’m honestly sick and tired of fighting with that fandom.
  6. [+120, -0] I think they’re jealous BTS was able to advance so quickly and made such huge achievements that they even got a Grammy nod, something none of their groups have been able to achieve. They probably think the nomination went to the wrong groupㅋㅋㅋㅈㄴso ridiculousㅋㅋㅋㅋ영 I watched the video too and they introduced BTS in 3-secs and cut to something else without commentㅋㅋㅋBlackpink at least got 5 secsㅋㅋㅋ They’re showing it like its an actual K-pop documentary when really its just SM content? Even from watching in the beginning I was curious why SuperM was being introduced and had such a prominent presence in the documentary when they’re talking about history of K-pop..?
  7. [+122, -0] I remember when BTS headlined Kcon LA in 2016 and it was broadcast in Korea. They edited it to show an SM artist in the ending cuts. 
  8. [+93, -2] This is like the Chinese trying to steal our Kimchi and Hanbokㅋㅋ
  9. [+77, -0] The fact that 4 out of 6 teams in that video are SM artists is basically proof that SM’s hands are all over thisㅋㅋ.

KPOP NOW – ‘River Where The Moon Rises’ files 3 billion won lawsuit against Ji-soo

KBS‘ ‘River Where The Moon Rises‘ has filed 3 billion won lawsuit against Ji-soo.

On the 2nd, Victory Contents, the production company of the drama filed a damages suit against Ji-soo’s agency Key East for massive losses due to Ji-soo’s school violence.

Victory Contents stated, “On the 1st we filed a lawsuit against Key East in the Seoul Central District Court for damages. As you probably guessed, this case is related to their artist Jisoo’s school violence scandal. At the beginning of last month after Jisoo’s victims came forward, he admitted to the bullying and halted all activities leaving his drama that had already aired its first 6 episodes. The other 19 had also been filmed. Despite knowing this, Key East and Ji-soo still halted all activities right around the time filming was almost done. Because of that, we had to re-film a lot of the episodes.”

“This drama was already a masterpiece with massive production costs so to re-film episodes, the additional cost was severe. But in order to keep our promise to the viewers, all the episodes from 1-6 had to be re-filmed and re-worked. The decision to re-film was a big decision because we suffered massive losses from the additional staff expenses, venue and equipment usage fees, appearance fees and art expenses.”

“We tried diligently to recoup the expenses from Key East but because they weren’t cooperating inevitably we had to file a complaint. We will try to finalize the lawsuit as soon as possible to ensure broadcasters and viewers can get back to watching even better programs in the future.” 

  1. [+5,385, -35] His abuse went past bullying, it’s at the level of violent sex crimes. I honestly hope the 3 billion won the production company is asking for is outside the amounts his agency can pay through his indemnity [insurance] agreement so that he’s forced to pay out of pocket and can’t afford it. Let’s hope for a makjang ending. 
  2. [+2,126, -45] Let’s make sure the volleyball twins don’t make a comeback either!!
  3. [+1,146, -12] How could he do all those things in the past and think to become a celebrity? Did he think he can cover the sky with his hands?
  4. [+696, -12] Throw him out forever!
  5. [+629, -141] He can always do delivery to make a living 
  6. [+337, -2] Kids~ are you watching? This is what will happen if you ruin your life being a bully
  7. [+68, -0] Every time I see his face it reminds me how ugly he is. How did someone with a face like that become the main character of a drama…?
  8. [+35, -2] Hyorin-ah, are you watching?
