4. [+63, -0] It’s so sad how us Koreans don’t know what to do at home because we’ve never had this much of free time.


5. [+42, -0] I’ve been practicing to stand on my hands. My goal is to be able to walk on hands.


6. [+34, -0] I just sleep.


7. [+20, -0] Cooking… I’ve made dalgona coffee, soufflé, and ice cream. I even bought a cream whipper for it ㅋㅋㅋ

12. [+11, -0] Bath ㅋㅋㅋ I take a throughout bath ㅋㅋ I used to take quick showers but now I use bath bombs, use an extra treatment after shampoo and conditioner, take my time and do a face mask. I’m considering to buy a lower-body bathtub.

30’s – $78

40’s – $98

50’s – $101

60’s – $81

+60’s – $63





Pann: Cash in Koreans’ wallets


1. [+92, -3] I don’t carry my wallet around thanks to Samsung Pay.


2. [+81, -3] None for me.


3. [+40, -0] Because of street food, I have about 10 bills of $1. If I carry a lot of cash, it only makes me nervous.


4. [+15, -1] I’d withdraw a $50 bill and carry it for months. It’s only for emergency.


5. [+11, -2] I stopped taking my wallet so I only have coins and a few dollars. I use LG Pay and have a credit card, so I never have to use cash.


6. [+10, -0] Just $10… I barely use cash.


7. [+8, -1] Since I always use Samsung Pay, I don’t usually take my wallet. But I do have $10 bill, $5 bill, and $1 bill. $1 bills are actually useful.


8. [+8, -0] You should first ask if I have a wallet.

KPOP NOW – Fashion show with balloon outfits


Pann: Fashion show that went viral for being creative

1. [+178, -1] The models are working hard.

2. [+147, -4] …? They gave up on fashion at a fashion show.

3. [+113, -0] Even if things go well during a rehearsal, they’ll be screwed if the outfit doesn’t function during an actual show ㅋㅋㅋㅋ They must be so nervous.

4. [+33, -0] It’d be meaningful if the balloon turns into an outfit shape. What’s the point if the balloon just sags after?

5. [+32, -2] Guys, fashion shows are divided by pret-a-porter and haute couture. Pret-a-porter is mainstream fashion and held by brands for sales, so they have a lot of pretty clothes. This fashion show is haute couture. Andre Kim is one of the representatives for it. Haute couture could also be for business but generally, it’s for art fashion. It’s like exhibitions for individual designers and are small scales. So you see a lot of weird outfits that you don’t see in daily life. A lot of people criticize the designers because of weird fashion shows but they’re haute couture, so please consider it as an art.

6 [+16, -0] The way the models struggle looks so off ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+8, -1] I graduated my school by making nothing ㅋㅋㅋ How did they even design that…

8. [+8, -0] Can they even breathe in that?

KPOP NOW – Compilation of honeybees’ bums – K-POP, K-FANS


Pann: Compilation of honeybees’ bums

1. [+123, -1] So cute. Those damn wasps bully these cute kids.

2. [+97, -0] Hul, how can you capture them so closely and accurately like that? Bees are tiny. Their bums are so cute, by the way ㅋㅋ

3. [+83, -0] The last picture with pollen on the bum is so cute ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+50, -1] Honeybees need to be protected and wasps should be killed as many as possible. One wasp kills hundreds of honeybees. Beekeepers are alerted when there’s a wasp because a couple of them can easily destroy an entire hive. Also, a honeybee dies after it attacks an opponent but a wasp’s sting can be used multiple times and can also bite a honeybee to kill. Wasps are very violent and they also look aggressive.

5. [+26, -0] Their cute little bums ㅋㅋ But people will panic once there’s one flying around them ㅋㅋ

6. [+22, -0] They look cute like this but if there’s one coming towards me, I get so scared ㅠㅠ

7. [+18, -0] I think it has to do with the hair. If they were hairless and shiny like an average insect, they would’ve looked disgusting. But because they have hair, they look less dangerous and somehow cute.

8, [+12, -0] I didn’t know a butt could be this cute…

KPOP NOW – Young people are more promiscuous these days?


Young people are more promiscuous these days? – K-POP, K-FANS

Young people are more promiscuous these days?

Pann: Why are young people so promiscuous these days?


1. [+203, -32] We just see more because of social media and the Internet. I believe it was the same before.


2. [+151, -24] Do you really think people were clean in the past? Seeing the reality of prostitution, you can’t say that today is worse than before. When I was young, there were minors sleeping with adults for money. The current young generation is raised by the young generation of the past, so you can’t judge one generation.


3. [+85, -65] In the past, people were naive. There were more serious about sex. Nowadays, people do whatever they want.


4. [+66, -1] I wonder why people seem so sexual these days ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Are they that h0rny to be having one night stands?


5. [+57, -1] Maybe because relationships are taken more lightly now. In the past, people took sex more seriously. It was the same for pregnancy and there was a stronger sense of responsibility. There was a segment of “if a man truly loves a woman, he’ll protect her instead of rushing to sleep with her.”


6. [+52, -0] You might not be aware but it’s just more unveiled due to the development of the media. Good thing Shim Eunha decided to retire. If she debuted now and did the actions, she would be exiled instead of becoming a top star. In the past, the only media were the newspaper, magazines, and the TV. A lot of things were unreported by lobbying the journalists. It’s case by case. Some people won’t sleep until they get married and some people will. In the past, people weren’t as aggressive. But now everybody’s ready to attack one another. If an innocent-concept actress is reported to be living with a man before she graduates high school, do you think she’ll be able to survive in the industry? What if a male actor or a male singer is reported to be having an affair with a chaebol wife? In the past, only few people knew about it but now everybody will hear the news. A lot of entertainment scandals were buried in the past.


7. [+47, -67] It’s true that people are more promiscuous compared to the past. Because we’re moving towards Westernization, the conservative mindset is broken. In the 70’s, more than 50% of men were married to virgins. But now there’s almost zero chance of marrying a virgin unless they’re your first love. Since the men also know this, they date many women until they hit 30 and marry a modest woman. Loser men end up marrying old women who slept with many other men before.


8. [+45, -0] If you avoid those people, you’ll be surrounded by those who aren’t like that.


9. [+35, -0] Huh, am I the only one who’s forced to not be promiscuous?


10. [+32, -3] Idiots, regardless of the development of the media, it’s true that people in their 20’s aren’t mindful about sex anymore. I know that people were similar and as playful in the past. I’m a 90’er but people in the past weren’t as promiscuous as young people these days. Most of my male friends have gone until the end.

2) Gym

Pann: Places that will become hot soon

1. [+132, -0] Isn’t it so cute and commendable, though ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Since it’s a new year, people want to become better versions of themselves and go to those places. I want to cheer for them.

2. [+89, -0] After two months, the crowd starts disappearing.

3. [+12, -0] I want to attend a foreign language academy but I can’t because I have no money.

4. [+7, -0] The picture isn’t a bookstore, it’s Posco Terarosa. That place is the best to go during weekday mornings.

5. [+4, -0] Places where people come less and less.

6. [+4, -0] The last picture isn’t a bookstore, it’s a cafe in Gangnam Posco building.

– I’ve been attending gym since a month ago.

– I make new year’s resolutions on Dec 31 and give up on Jan 1.

KPOP NOW – Ranking of most sold colors for iPhone 11


1) Purple

2) White

3) Mint

4) Yellow

5) Red

6) Black

Pann: iPhone 11, ranking of most sold colors

1. [+94, -70] Upvote or downvote for black.

2. [+61, -4] I can understand those who don’t find it pretty but what’s with those who say “I don’t understand why you’d buy one”? Did you buy for them or what?

3. [+44, -71] Looks old-fashioned.

4. [+30, -2] I got white because purple was out of stock but in real life, yellow and red looked the prettiest.

5. [+22, -27] They’re all ugly.

6. [+19, -0] I’m 100% satisfied with purple ㅠㅠ Get purple, everyone.

7. [+13, -5] I wonder if it would sold that much if Samsung released those colors. Honestly, they look old-fashioned.

8. [+13, -0] I find yellow and red the prettiest, but they’re low in the rank ㅠㅠ

9. [+11, -1] I got purple and thought I’d get bored of the color soon but I’m still not bored.

10. [+8, -0] I waited for purple but ended up getting green because they said it’d take 3 weeks, but they called on the next day and said they had purple. I was so pissed… But my green is so pretty ㅠㅠ

KPOP NOW – Question on Samsung’s entrance exams


Which one of these has a different personality?


1) Morning, afternoon, evening
2) May, June, July
3) Autumn, winter, spring
4) Sunday, Monday Tuesday





Pann: Hardest question of Samsung’s entrance exams


1. [+148, -11] 1. The rest of them is a part of something but 1 is the whole thing.


2. [+114, -0] This was written in an article, OP isn’t lying ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It was Samsung exams indeed.

3. [+87, -3] The comments are clueless. When you apply for major companies, you have multiple choice tests, not interviews. After you pass the test, you qualify for an interview. There are answers for the questions. What do you know to claim that there’s no specific answer?

4. [+46, -2] Characteristic of this type of question – they don’t tell you the answer.

5. [+40, -2] I thought of 3. So what’s Samsung’s answer?

6. [+26, -5] 1. Only 1 can circulate without stopping.

7. [+24, -11] Am I the only one who thinks it’s 3? Usually, it’s spring-summer-autumn-winter or winter-spring-summer-autumn but since it’s autumn-winter-spring, it doesn’t feel like it starts from the beginning.

8. [+18, -3] The answer is 4. Morning, afternoon, evening: the Sun. The day is divided by the Earth’s rotation. May, June, July: the Sun. The months are divided by the Earth’s cycle of revolution. Autumn, winter, spring: the Sun. The seasons are divided by the Earth’s cycle of revolution. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday: religion. It’s not decided by time or temperature, people made 24 hours for convenience.

9. [+15, -0] Isn’t the answer 4 since it uses “on” for preposition but the rest uses “in”? As an English major, this was my first thought ㅋㅋㅋㅋ In the morning, In May, In Summer, On Sunday.

10. [+14, -1] 1. The rest is clearly meant to indicate time but morning/afternoon/evening can also mean breakfast/lunch/dinner.

(tn: words like morning/breakfast are the same in Korean)

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.
