KPOP NOW – Drama team of ‘True Beauty’ at wedding without masks


Pann: The entertainment industry is so infuriating

1. [+413, -3] Yet they always claim they follow the protocols for disinfection. I f*cking hate how pretentious they are.

2. [+372, -9] I’m honestly curious. Why are they not paying a fine when it’s more than 5 people?

3. [+256, -2] People at other dramas wear masks. This drama is a weird one.

4. [+171, -2] Students can’t even have a graduation because of COVID ㅠㅠ Being a celebrity really is a privilege.

5. [+151, -5] Cha Eunwoo posted this? Is he out of his mind? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+119, -1] Being a celebrity is a privilege. On TV shows they don’t even wear a mask, either. Seriously, why do celebrities get an exception?

7. [+112, -1] I went to a wedding a few days ago and everybody was wearing a mask even when taking photos. Why are they doing this? Such a low class.

8. [+81, -0] You should indicate in the title that this is the drama team of True Beauty.

9. [+81, -1] They always put captions for “following the protocols for disinfection” yet this is the reality ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+66, -0] Yet it’s banned to have more than 5 people gathered and restaurants have a 9PM curfew and gyms are closed ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Is this the difference between the aristocratic class and the common class?

11. [+63, -2] It’s not like wearing a mask is a difficult task. Why the f*ck are they refusing to wear one?

12. [+60, -0] I just reported them. Please make sure to report them, put the address as the TVN headquarter at Mapo-gu Sangam-dong.


13. [+54, -2] The people in the photo have to pay a fine.

14. [+51, -0] They get to do this while waiting because they’re celebrities. I envy them.

KPOP NOW – [Love of 7.7 Billion] Discusses COVID19 with Abnormal Summit guests


Article: ‘Love of 7.7 Billion’ Tyler, “In the US, the cost of testing COVID19 is up to $4,000”

Source: The Celeb via Nate

1. [+977, -18] Our country’s strength is our healthcare system. What’s with the brainless politicians, hospital owners, and big corporations demanding to privatize medical system like the US? There’s no politician who cares about the citizens…

2. [+846, -19] If we privatized the medical system, we would’ve ended up like that.

3. [+600, -19] The US wants to copy us and we want to copy the US.

4. [+67, -10] I remember Lee Myung Bak trying to privatize the medical system.

5. [+37, -0] Then foreigners must be trying to enter Korea… We should stop them.


Article: ‘Love of 7.7 Billion’ Tyler, “Racism towards Asians due to COVID19, a mistake of the media”

Source: Xports News via Nate

1. [+455, -8] Tyler is such a good speaker!

2. [+454, -4] Did you guys see the Chinese representative telling Tyler to be careful? Does he think he’s Xi Jinping or what? We have the freedom of expression. Yet he tells Tyler to watch his words and that China is handling coronavirus well. Why did they even feature a Chinese representative? So annoying, I would dislike him even if he was my friend. Tyler only said the right things.

3. [+362, -9] The problem is that China is refusing to admit that they’re the source of the virus. Coronavirus is Wuhan pneumonia.

4. [+31, -2] I hope it’s not an artificial virus… The virus is one of the most contagious ones I’ve seen.

5. [+30, -0] The Chinese representative on the show is hopeless… He thinks China is the center of the world. Typical Chinese.


Article: ‘Love of 7.7 Billion’ Maxime, “In Russia, there’s a rumor that most Koreans are Shincheonji followers”

Source: Sports Choson via Nate

1. [+582, -9] Shincheonji and China are cancers of the world.

2. [+392, -12] We’re proud citizens of Korea. How dare you.

3. [+317, -37] Crazy idiot, what nonsense is he saying? Are Russians ignorant like that?

4. [+30, -3] Shincheonji is bringing down the reputation of the country! I had no thought on forgiving them and I’m never going to!

5. [+20, -1] What Shincheonji and China did wrong: They should’ve been transparent with the information from the beginning to stop the spread of the virus. But they were busy hiding and finally revealed information after it got out of hands. But even the information was very much fabricated, so the spread is still happening.


Article: ‘Love of 7.7 Billion’ Joachim, “In Sweden, men using parental leave is normal, I feel bad for Korean women”

Source: Xports News via Nate

1. [+165, -21] It’s unfortunate for both men and women. Men have a parental leave here too but they don’t feel comfortable using it.

2. [+148, -18] In our country, if a man uses parental leave, he gets more dirty looks than a woman. That’s why men can’t use parental leave. When I use a parental leave because my kid is sick, my boss scoffs and wonders why I’m the one using it instead of my wife.

3. [+109, -6] That Chinese guy is so shameless. I hope they don’t cast Chinese people on this kind of shows. I hate their Sino-centricism.

KPOP NOW – Did ‘Produce 101’ ruin the idol scene?


Did ‘Produce 101’ ruin the idol scene? – K-POP, K-FANS

Did ‘Produce 101’ ruin the idol scene?



Pann: Negative influence Produce 101 has put on the music industry


1. [+150, -1] The atmosphere of the fans changed ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It became messy.


2. [+102, -0] Since Produce 101, the fandoms became systemized. There are so many things to do now. It used to be just streaming digitals but now we have to watch Youtube music videos, Naver TV videos, and stream/download songs like a war. The voting, too… It’s because the akgaes are so much worse now so the competition is worse.


3. [+92, -10] Agreed. I don’t even know why they did the show.


4. [+54, -0] Since the boy version of Produce 101, it was a slow season for boy groups so the boy groups that debuted in the second half of 2016 all flopped. SF9, Victon, Pentagon… But Pentagon climbed back on the chart with Shine and SF9 is rising with Extraordinary You. Victon was a recognized rookie group but they were forgotten by Produce 101 and then ironically got recognized by Produce 101. I hope the 2016 groups do well.


5. [+53, -0] It’s true that the idol scene has gotten weird since Produce 101.


6. [+48, -0] Produce 101 was the most issued so the rookie groups that debuted around the same time got all buried.


7. [+41, -0] The idol scene was already dying and Produce 101 was just a nail on the coffin. Honestly, you can tell that there’s a lack of talents now. I don’t see any idol that has potentials to be huge. The market is dead, I don’t think it’s fair to blame Produce 101 only.


8. [+34, -0] I think it’s this. People got to pick the idols and make them debut, so they thought they had power to abuse and started insults. As a result, the scene became messy.


9. [+34, -0] Maybe it’s just an overlap but since 2016 with Produce 101, the idol scene has changed completely. Up until 2015, it used to be f(x), Apink, and Girl’s Day.


10. [+30, -1] It was all good until season 2. They should’ve stopped there. It’s good that things are revealed now, at least. Or else they would’ve done a new season every year. It’s good that Produce 101 isn’t continuing anymore.

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

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 – ‘Queendom’ PD hints a boy group version ‘Kingdom(?)’



Article: ‘Queendom’ PD, “I’m happy that people view idols differently now… In talks for season 2”

(In the article, the PD said the next season will feature boy groups)


Pann: CJ’s most issued show ‘Queendom’ is in talks for season 2

1. [+269, -5] If they actually do Kingdom, the fandom fights will be brutal… Instead of Kingdom, they should do season 2 of Queendom and feature girl groups like April and WJSN. People will watch again.

2. [+205, -3] Please do Queendom 2, not Kingdom. F*ck.

3. [+103, -0] The concerns became the truth…

4. [+51, -1] They should do season 2 of Queendom with “singers in your memories” and feature idols like Secret, Nine Muses, T-ara, and Five Dolls.

5. [+33, -0] They should’ve done this in the beginning of the third generation of idols. BTOB, VIXX, Block B, and B1A4 all had their unique concepts but EXO got popular with Growl so they all got overshadowed.

6. [+24, -1] I want to see April. I really liked April Story.

7. [+24, -1] Please leave while you’re in the spotlight instead of dragging on.

8. [+17, -3] Predicted lineup: Pentagon, SF9, Astro, etc.

‘1N2D’ season 4 with new casts confirmed to air in December – K-POP, K-FANS

‘1N2D’ season 4 with new casts confirmed to air in December



Article: [Exclusive] ‘1N2D’ Refreshed, from oldest hyung Yeon Jung Hoon to maknae Ravi


Source: Star News via Naver


(Season 4 of 1N2D is to start airing in December and the casts are Yeon Jung Hoon, Moon Se Yoon, Kim Jong Min, Din Din, Kim Sun Ho, and Ravi)


1. [+3210, -100] The lineup is completely meaningless. Not sure if it’ll be fun?


2. [+1822, -185] Kim Sun Ho is a refreshing cast.


3. [+1390, -77] They don’t have a leader like Kang Ho Dong or Yoo Jae Suk.


4. [+1194, -345] Honestly, it’s so-so without Kim Junho and Defconn.


5. [+921, -110] Goodbye 1N2D~ It’s time to say farewell to the show ㅠㅠ Season 1 was the best, they need to come back!!





Source: Naver


1. [+1381, -103] The casting is disappointing. It’ll be boring.


2. [+665, -31] Who’s the main? They need at least Kim Junho with Kim Jong Min… I have low expectations.


3. [+642, -118] Din Din’s broadcast attitude is so arrogant. I think he’ll cause an accident.


4. [+521, -107] Din Din is there… I’m not gonna watch it~ He’s the most annoying person.


5. [+327, -27] Why are they continuing this boring, pointless show?





Source: Nate


1. [+742, -61] The casting is already boring! Am I the only one who sees a flop?


2. [+498, -40] Yeon Jung Hoon is so quiet and shy. I’m not sure how a variety show will suit him.


3. [+450, -33] I bet the show will be cancelled or there will be a big member change in a few months.


4. [+36, -5] I’m sorry but it doesn’t look exciting. It’ll be just like season 2 with Kim Seung Woo and Sung Si Kyung.


5. [+33, -3] This lineup makes me want to change the channel already ㅋㅋㅋ





Source: Nate


1. [+318, -10] Moon Se Yoon and Kim Jong Min will have to work hard.


2. [+231, -12] After the flop of season 2, the staff still didn’t learn their lesson. Kim Jong Min and Moon Se Yoon are funny but they’re not the type who will take the lead to make the scene funny. They need a funny leader like Lee Soo Geun, they’re so clueless. At least bring Kim Junho or Defconn. I predict 6 months as the longest.


3. [+213, -78] Jong Min-ah, just leave the show. Until when are you gonna stick around? It’s boring, try something new.

KPOP NOW – Preview of ‘Produce X 101’ episode on MBC’s documentary show ‘PD Note’


Preview of ‘Produce X 101’ episode on MBC’s documentary show ‘PD Note’ – K-POP, K-FANS

Preview of ‘Produce X 101’ episode on MBC’s documentary show ‘PD Note’



(The captions)
We heard such stories
They already knew the assignments before
Apparently they were decided way before
Scene of unfair competition
Idol-maker CJ’s fake audition
The boys’ passion was ruined by evil editing
The votes were ruined by result manipulation
The boys scream “save me”
National producer-nim
The truth of fake audition to be revealed
It’s Show Time





Pann: Wow, look at the quality of PD Note’s preview


1. [+143, -8] Crazy… But my bias was eliminated and my second bias is a core member in X1… It hurts me to see X1’s music video scenes in the gif. What did the members do to deserve this? F*cking Mnet and the companies ㅠㅠ


2. [+104, -3] Wow, I have to watch this.


3. [+97, -4] The ratings will be no joke.


4. [+53, -0] Insane… They told the trainees about the assignments beforehand? Goosebumps.


5. [+50, -2] It’s like Ahn Joon Young and the guilty companies aren’t getting enough criticisms and they’re putting X1 as a scapegoat.


6. [+44, -0] If the trainees knew about the assignments beforehand, they must’ve known that they were to be debut members by manipulation.


7. [+28, -0] Wow ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I’ve heard that the public channels really disliked cable channels but they’re going really hard with this one.


8. [+27, -5] They told the trainees about the assignments beforehand??? Poor other trainees.





Pann: X1 to appear on PD Note on the 15th


1. [+213, -1] This is how they advance onto public channels.


2. [+145, -51] Ahn Joon Young is arrested ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Son Dongpyo this j*rk is definitely manipulated for sure. It’s also going to be Kang Minhee+Lee Hangyul or Cha Junho.


3. [+87, -3] PD Note, crazy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ


4. [+59, -3] If this is appearing on PD Note, it’s the end ㅋㅋㅋ


5. [+56, -5] Speak properly… It’s not about X1, it’s about revealing CJ’s dirty actions. CJ and Mnet are the center of this controversy, not X1. What we need to criticize is CJ and not X1.


6. [+48, -1] They’re never gonna get sponsor deals or broadcast promotions. Why? Because the three public channels really didn’t like Produce 101. The 3 seasons all did well, so they made similar programs but flopped. Besides, CJ is making a 1st tier idol group exclusively every year. Of course they didn’t like the situation. Finally they caught something this time, I’m sure they’re excited.





Pann: Wow, PD Note is gonna be so much fun


1. [+198, -3] Ahn Joon Young is such a bad guy. How many dreams did he crush?


2. [+195, -0] It’s Show Time ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I wanted to see the trainees’ show, not the staff’s show.


3. [+95, -7] So much fun already.


4. [+45, -0] This is actually the 13th episode of Produce X. They advanced onto public channels for sure.


5. [+37, -2] The trainees knew about the assignments? Aren’t they just as guilty, then?


6. [+33, -0] The kids must feel so hopeless… They must’ve thought hard-working would be enough. Why did they try hard until the end for? Even if you work hard, you can’t beat power and money. I feel bad for the trainees since they learned this at a young age ㅠㅠ Even the manipulated members wouldn’t have known this. They’re just getting hate because of their agencies.

KPOP NOW – TVN’s new shocking drama with Hyun Bin & Son Ye Jin


TVN’s new shocking drama with Hyun Bin & Son Ye Jin – K-POP, K-FANS

TVN’s new shocking drama with Hyun Bin & Son Ye Jin

Temporary name: Emergency Landing of Love


Writer: Park Jieun


Storyline: Due to a paragliding accident, a chaebol girl Yoon Seri lands in North Korea. A high-rank officer Lee Jung Hyuk hides and protects her and falls in love with her.


Lead actors: Hyun Bin & Son Ye Jin



Pann: Shocking drama that TNV is preparing right now


1. [+300, -12] I’m worried that clueless kids will romanticize North Korea after this.


2. [+230, -0] People said Park Jieun writer-nim’s You From The Stars was similar to a manhwa called Seol Hee. The Legend of the Blue Sea was controversial, too. Seeing the storyline, she’s trying to make another hit by top stars and cringey lines. These days, rookie writers like When The Camellia Blooms make much better dramas.


3. [+205, -9] Why is the name so old-fashioned ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It sounds like a North Korean drama. North Koreans will go crazy over Hyun Bin after this drama and we’ll unite.


4. [+114, -0] If you paraglide and cross over to North Korea, they’ll start shooting you non-stop and there’ll be 300 holes in your body ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ


5. [+78, -0] What the f*ck, if you land in North Korea by accident, you’ll be on breaking news at 9PM and crying and asking to be sent back to South Korea. How can you even develop love in that situation ㅋㅋㅋ


6. [+76, -4] Park Jieun was fine until You From The Stars. There’s a limit to a refreshing storyline but this is reaching ㅋㅋㅋㅋ A rom-com like Producers would be better.


7. [+67, -0] Ugh, can they stop romanticizing North Korea? They always portray North Koreans as handsome+quiet+good at fighting. Disgusting.


8. [+66, -1] Romanticizing North Korea again.


9. [+54, -11] We’ll see Hyun Bin’s same acting, same voice tone, and same facial expressions again. Honestly, he can’t act. It’s just that he’s very handsome. I don’t understand why people fantasize North Korea and China. It’s a serious problem to worship countries like them. This doesn’t fall under freedom of individual or freedom of expression. Democracy is on top and the rest is below that.


10. [+43, -0] Even if you’re just paragliding, you’ll be caught in the enemy’s radar way before and a missile will be launched. The setting of crossing the border is dumb enough.
