AR = The sound source that you hear through the CD itself (Lip Sync)

Live AR = Re-recorded by recreating the live sound on mr (Lip Sync) 

Live MR = Leave only the parts that can be sang on Live ar (Partial Live, Partial Lip Sync)

MR = 100% live

Live = Band for accompaniment with added mr, usually played during ‘ment’ portion

Let’s just praise the groups that sing like they ate CDs and do it live on stage..

  1. [+569, -25] Stray Kids, Bangtan, and GOT7 are really all live.
  2. [+448, -26] Wow, TXT was a rookie back then too but it’s MR…Big Hit must not allow lip sync 
  3. [+368, -19] Huh? What?? The kids I thought were brimming with talent are the ones doing all the lip sync?? Why lip sync the year-end gayos…just why
  4. [+191, -6] BTS had five stages at once at the 2019 gayos and all five were MR. I honestly thought those were their best stages too…BtoB was also live on all stages.
  5. [+171, -18] Daebak! how are all SM’s stages Live AR? f*ckㅅㅂㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  6. [+136, -32] SHINee Red Velvet EXO NCT all lip syncㅋㅋEXO SEVENTEEN do open mic to live AR 메 screaming “make some noise!” once doesn’t make the stage liveㅋㅋ
  7. [+104, -2] I just don’t understand how these multi-in-one idol groups like Seventeen, NCT and The Boyz lip sync…the members only sing one-liners on stage…
  8. [+84, -2] SM stans always acting like their faves are so talented when all of them except SHINee do lip syncㅋㅋㅋ

KPOP NOW – Actor Lee Jong-suk and Kwon Nara embroiled in dating rumors again

Article“Lee Jong-suk and Kwon Nara are in a relationship”

Source: Pann

I was watching a video of Seo Yeji on YouTube and entertainment director Kim Yong-ho said that they were dating? There were articles about them in the past too. They’re both in the same agency so it’s natural to get close but he said they’re dating. Lee Jong-suk apparently gifted Kwon Nara a Ferrari? 

I got curious so I decided to write this.

  1. [+391, -8] What this same reporter revealed 9 months ago 1. Seo Yeji x Kim Jung-hyun 2. Seo Ye-ji dated Kim Soohyun and is now in a relationship with Kim Soohyun’s cousin 3. Lee Jong-suk and Kwon Nara are still dating 4. Kim Soohyun is not in control of his private life because of X 5. Seo Ye-ji went around acting like a queen on set, like she was Jung Jihyun, here’s link to the Kim Soo-hyun video
  2. [+366, -1] It’s not like they’re trying to hide their feelings for each other, plus the only two celebrities in Lee Jong-suk’s agency are Lee Jong-suk and Kwon Naraㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  3. [+289, -5] Now that I think about it,, both Kwon Nara and Lee Na-yeong look a bit similar…no? They both had big double eyelids, they both have small pretty faces and long limbs like models…looks like Lee Jong-suk’s tastes are very consistent
  4. [+217, -2] Since Yunho’s scandal, the idea of “celebrity image” is completely shattered….I no longer trust in them anymore..
  5. [+185, -0] I remember him on that interview he did about Sulli, he didn’t say much about her just kept going “wow” and turned Sulli into some strange loner, even Sulli looked embarrassed ㅋㅋㅋ. At first, it was Sulli getting cursed out in the comments but then later more comments asking “why he was acting like that” started pouring outㅋ
  6. [+182, -1] Ah~ honestly let’s cut out anything about Kim Soo-hyun. F*ck ever since ‘My Love From Another Star’ I get the feeling he’s been “image-making” ever since he became a celebrity
  7. [+134, -0] I remember feeling sorry for Seo Ye-ji when rumors first came out about Kim Soohyun being a real psychopath…looks like she’s just as shameless as him..
  8. [+122, -0] I remember seeing photos of Kim Soohyun smoking cigarettes in high school, him and his friends only wearing panties and him cursing at Psy? Ever since then I woke up from my delusions about him. I saw those pictures on Google back then but looks like they got buried…

KPOP NOW – Staff reveal testimony that Seo Ye-ji treated staff like maids and sent them on cigarette errands

Article: [Exclusive] Following claims of academic forgery and bullying, staff exposes Seo Ye-ji’s ‘gapjil’…”She treated us like maids, ran cigarette errands”

Source: Sports Chosun

Staff members A and B have come forward with testimony of actress Seo Ye-ji‘s ‘gapjil’ [power trip].

On the 14th, a post titled “Seo Yeji’s ‘gapjil’ exposed in the comments” was shared on Pann. A user asked, “Is Seo Yeji’s personality good? I like her but I’m curious about her personality.”

A netizen replied to the comment and stated, “I worked with Seo Ye-ji. She’s someone that likes to work with people she’s comfortable around so she trampled on her staffs character. All the staff members were told that they had to match her. Whenever staff quit, she never forgot to threaten them with her comments. She often vented her anger and would say, “this floor is small, be careful with your mouth I can make it impossible for you to keep working here.”

“She often bragged about going to an aristocratic school in University of Spain. I guess she was a mythomaniac because I heard directly from people’s mouths that she never actually attended there. Seo Ye-ji was arrogant ever since she was a rookie from the first time I worked with her. Anyone around her that worked with Seo Ye-ji gradually left because of the abuse. It was a really hellish time in my life.”

Another staff came forward and revealed, “She always smoked in the car and made us run cigarette errands pretending to be a simple person that likes basic concepts. I made a mistake once and followed her to bathroom and she blew cigarette smoke in my face. She didn’t allow us to record anything and sometimes made us take phone tests. She treated staff like maids and acted like we were dogs and pigs. She scolded me once after filming was over that I cried so much on the way home from all the abuse.”

“She threatened us a lot and told us to “watch our mouths.” I can’t believe someone like her with a personality that couldn’t be bothered with staffs came out on TV. It’s disgusting. If she doesn’t think what she did was wrong then I’d like for her to explain logic of her actions and what she did to staff.”

In the meantime, Seo Ye-ji released a statement on the 13th through her agency and denied all rumors of bullying and controlling Kim Jung-hyun‘s action on the set of ‘Time‘ following Dispatch’s report.  She also stated that “she prepared for admission to Madrid-based University of Complutense but failed to attend after debuting as an actress in the industry.”

  1. [+2,087, -47] Just like Irene. I just don’t get it. You don’t know that doing that to staff is bad? Or did she think the rumors won’t come out. ╋ Wow, it’s up again.. Seo Ye-ji did an interview and said she almost died because the director exposed her to briquette gas during filming. The film ended up getting ruined and got cancelled after people started boycotting it. The director cursed her for it and story got buried. And then rumors came out that there was no smoke there and no one made her film with briquette gas. The director asked Seo Ye-ji for clarifications but never once exposed her. He endured it all to the end, it still remains a big trauma for him. A while ago, an entertainment reporter did a broadcast on YouTube and checked the facts. Here’s the link guys, check it out
  2. [+1,879, -4] Let’s start a major clean-up in the entertainment industry starting with this article. Looks like there are a lot people who’s blood is boiling just looking at this post right now..
  3. [+1,097, -5] If this is true… it’s really scary
  4. [+828, -3] I’m not saying this as a metaphor, she’s seriously a sociopath. All these stories from the unni thing, Kim Jae-wook, Kim Jung-hyun, it’s basically certain at this point
  5. [+744, -3] This is why we need to stop glorifying celebrities…I liked Seo Ye-ji too but her fans are seriously trash. To think that as a rookie she treated her staff so poorly and looked down on them like that…hul~
  6. [+684, -3] I really hope that these revelations lead to a MeToo movement in the industry so that these dirty celebrities get filtered out and exiled 
  7. [+414, -2]  Director Kim Yong-ho said that Seo Ye-ji is the type of woman to do self-harm and suicide in order to get out of a scandal. People around her need to watch Seo Ye-ji and see what she does in the next couple days…
  8. [+368, -6] From the start I was aware how much of a sadist Seo Ye-ji was but to see her suffering now from how she treated men in her life makes me happy….she’s queen of gas-lighting
  9. [+221, -1] Seo Yeji is really…weird. It’s bizarre.. I’ve seen a lot of celebrity scandals but this is just…it’s a bit weird
  10. [+72, -101] As if Jisoo didn’t do that to staff

The other 9 members SomiChunghaKim SejeongWeki Meki‘s Choi Yoojung and Kim Doyeon, Kim SohyeDIA‘s ChaeyeonLim Nayeong and WJSN‘s Yeonjung will attend. 


Next month in May IOI will reunite as a group on broadcast…

The Supreme Court already confirmed that the entire ‘Produce’ groups were rigged and Wanna One, IZ*ONE and X1 all disbanded early or disbanded after concluding activities…???

Honestly, the members are the problematic here. They keep saying on V app and broadcasts that they want to promote again as a group, are they not thinking of their victims at all? Why would you want to reunite a rigged group???

CJ and Mnet should just set up an idol agency, stop with the survival shows;;;;;;;;;

Look at all the instances they media played with their rigged ‘Produce’ groups.

2017 MAMA IOI appearance -> AKB48 Dance performance

2019 MAMA IOI reunion -> cancelled

2020 KCON Wanna One Unit Stage

2020 MAMA Wanna One Stage -> cancelled

2021 May IOI reunion confirmed

2021 MAMA …..?

Looking at this, I have a feeling X1 IZ*ONE, Wanna, and IOI will have a stage ㅋㅋ.;;;;;

Please stop with this…

  1. [+305, -44] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ IZ*ONEㅇㅇㅈㅇ이 is still promoting so why can’t IOI? 
  2. [+200, -104] Regardless, how is it their fault that the group was rigged? What’s wrong of them to want to get together for their fans…aren’t they victims too?
  3. [+198, -19] But from their point of view, it was promised 5 years ago. If they don’t keep it then they’re breaking their promise with fans…
  4. [+94, -75] / IOI fans don’t even want this. They don’t want them to reunite for their 5th anniversary only to get hate/
  5. [+70, -17] I’m an IOI fan too but I’d rather they don’t do this coz it’s only going to get them hate..
  6. [+86, -2] But he didn’t even want to voluntarily leave on his own…
  7. [+62, -9] Ah~ if Kim So-hye has any shame left, she should sit out of this
  8. [+57, -1] Victims…hmmm
  9. [+51, -3] It’s just one-time live? I think that’s ok since its a project group and they promised fans..
  10. [+26, -9] Guys, the members are good kids it’s the PDs that are problematic. It’s not like they could control who ended up in the group, isn’t it a bit funny to place blame on them..?

KPOP NOW – Netizen comes forward with testimony that Seo Ye-ji was a school bully

Article: [Exclusive] Seo Ye-ji re-ignites suspicions of school violence → Silence? Rumors began in 2014

Source: Herald Pop

Suspicions that actress Seo Ye-ji was a school bully in the past have been re-ignited. 

On the 13th, Herald Pop conducted an exclusive interview with anonymous netizen that shared revelations of school violence about Seo Ye-ji in 2014. At the time, the netizen stated, “the kid that harassed, dragged, borrowed and refused to play with other kids including myself in middle school debuted as an actor. Now her image is very good. She has a positive and cheerful image.”

Other netizens also gave strength to the argument stating, “If you ask other kids from the same middle school you’ll know everything.”

Regarding why they never came forward about the suspicions, the netizen stated, “because Seo Ye-ji was a rookie at the time so the revelation of school abuse didn’t become a topic.”

Last February, a revelation article that Seo Ye-ji was the perpetrator of school violence in the past was published. At that time, netizens refuted the suspicions so the situation ended with the deletion of the article. However, on the 12th, school violence rumors reignited again after Dispatch article revealed Seo Ye-ji abused and manipulated her former lover actor Kim Jung-hyun not to do skin ship with his female protagonist Seohyun on MBC drama ‘Time.’

In the meantime, Seo Ye-ji will not be attending the premiere of her new film ‘Memory of Tomorrow‘ on the 13th and has gone silent regarding rumors of school violence.

  1. [+601, -54] Seeing as she even asked him [Kim Jung-hyun] not to say hello to staff she must’ve bullied and used her gapjil [power trip] with staff and supporting actors
  2. [+532, -5] At this point, her school violence rumors should be re-examined. they kept getting buried
  3. [+345, -6] There is a reason Seohyun is able to last this long in the industry. There are many kids idols and actors that can’t stand even the little things and can’t shut their mouths on Instagram..
  4. [+324, -6] Seo Ye-ji deserves all the hate but let’s not forget Kim Jung-hyun is no differentㅋㅋㅋㅋ Is it normal to wipe your hands with wet wipes just because she touched them? f*cking ba$tard
  5. [+324, -1] This too f*ck…ever since she debut her character has always been like that
  6. [+306, -1] Now I can understand why she was cast as a psycho in a drama
  7. [+212, -1] She’s infamous for this and has been embroiled in school violence controversies for a while now. Every time it would come out, the article would come up on real-time rankings and then disappear. Looks she has some strong connections.
  8. [+208, -2] I thought she was a psychopath at this time too and my body froze in shock during rock paper scissors when she said, “is your sister dead…?” I got goosebumps..
  9. [+185, -1] No…but ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I already knew she was a real psycho…unniㅋㅋ
  10. [+174, -5] Why did the two break-up, looks like they were meant for each otherㅜㅜ

KPOP NOW – Mingyu’s final position over bullying rumors causes further controversy

Article: “Mingyu’s official statement is crazy”

Source: Pann

It’s a bad idea to say that you don’t want to take more responsibility for things you admitted to doing wrong in the past. Somehow, he made himself look like a thug… 

So bullying your friends is just a joke? Don’t write the position ambiguously, if you’ve done something wrong, apologize because you did wrong and if not, say no. At first, you said you had no memory but on the official statement the words change to laughing from the side? 

What unintentional behavior? Wasn’t it true that you laughed along with your group next to you when they bullied the victim? Tell it correctly. Isn’t it true that you grabbed the victim’s chest with ill intent? 

….Summary of the position statement….

Victim 1 (a friend who received psychiatric counseling because of the suffering): I played a joke with my friends, but I never intended to harass. I’m sorry if I unintentionally hurt you. 

Victim 2: I don’t remember. The victim also has no friends to testify, so the case is closed.

Victim 3: I was just playing along. I’m sorry if the victim was victimized by unintentional behavior

He basically doesn’t want to be bothered about his past bullying actions…

  1. [+303, -29] It’s basically confirmed he went around with an iljin group but he’s denying bullying after he clearly said he was laughing on the side? There are rumors from first discloser’s statements that he was beat up by a group of iljins and Mingyu helped from the side..
  2. [+286, -28] How can you apologize directly to the victim through the company ㄹㄱㄴ
  3. [+173, -114] This is even worse than Soojin’s case because he’s a male idol
  4. [+118, -5] This is a non-apology released only so that the fans can shield him from his scandals..
  5. [+107, -9] So he “allegedly” had a conversation with the victim but its the agency releasing his position, agency releasing his apology, the agency revealing what he wants to say to his fans…
  6. [+85, -115] Pann b*tches are seriously scaryㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ they’ll kill over a manㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ그 stop please
  7. [+84, -65] I’m Mingyu’s fan too but I’m really disappointed in him because of the paintings. The statement may be a bit vague but is it really confirmation that he was a school bully? The victim was understanding of it too… so why is everyone…
  8. [+77, -10] It’s only natural that he’s getting mentioned alongside Soojin and Hyunjin. Among the idols that also got accused of bullying, Mingyu is the only one coming off this unscathed. Soojin and Hyunjin’s images took huge hits over their scandals
  9. [+50, -7] We’re not saying he did or didn’t do those disgusting things. But he’s saying it was a joke and also claiming he can’t rememberㅋㅋ? He’s the perpetrator but he’s basically using the victim as a scapegoat 
  10. [+48, -12] Soojin claimed to have no memory either ㅋㅋㅋ

KPOP NOW – Newly released certified transcript of Chorong’s victim surfaces online

Article: (Updated) Shorthand authentication of the victim + transcript with Park Cho-rong

Source: Pann 

The victim guessed that Chorong was trying to check whether or not she was recording the call through FaceTime on her iPhone. Even after admitting to it she still went ahead and sued her first saying she falsely accused her ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 

Summary: When A asked her, ‘why did you assault me?’ Chorong said, “There was someone I liked so I got a little angry.” 

+ Here’s the shorthand authentication of the victim and newly released certified transcript

  1. [+1,458, -21] Seeing as she went as far as confirming that the victim’s phone couldn’t record through FaceTime, she probably though she won’t be able to expose this. How did Chorong think she could get out of this after admitting to assaulting her? F***ing goosebumps. Chorong-ssi should thank the victim for not exposing during her prime after she went around drinking and beating up people
  2. [+1,363, -11] Summary: She got pissed the victim (her friend) went out with someone she liked so she got drunk and gang assaulted her with her friends. She made sure to confirm that the phone she used for the call couldn’t record through FaceTime but the victim found a different way to record it. 
  3. [+519, -5]ㅋㅋㅋㅋ A high school student drank and beat up a close friend with her own mouth because of a man? And then filed a lawsuit first ㅋㅋㅋ
  4. [+422, -5] If this is real there’s no need to stay neutral anymore. Apologize, take responsibility and retire. Stop with the lies and don’t drag down your members anymore. I’m seriously in shock how someone like her became a celebrity and a leader. I was a huge fan of her for over 10 years but there’s nothing to trust anymore
  5. [+374, -4] But the victim did nothing wrong. It’s more painful knowing your close friend did that to you because of a guy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  6. [+300, -3] How did she get away with this for 10 years? She should be grateful this is just coming out now..
  7. [+214, -2] This is why its so important to record everything…look at everyone shutting their mouths after the authenticated transcript pops up…isn’t this confirmation she abused her?
  8. [+144, -5] It’s so ridiculous to think Park Chorong and Seo Soojin had shy, innocent and righteous imagesㅋㅋ
  9. [+126, -0] ㄹㅇ Shorthand certification is much more credible than just releasing a transcript.. There’s no way the excerpts are maliciously edited or re-arranged. This was written by a stenographer with a national certification. Why would a whole stenographer office risk their meals and jobs for a f***ing idol? It really doesn’t make sense…
  10. [+100, -2] Wow….. She even certified it at the shorthand office….;; So it’s almost certain…no?

KPOP NOW – Which idol group truly paved the way for K-pop in the West?

Article: “Why is there a lot of noise on who paved the way for K-pop in the U.S market?”

Source: Pann

Paving the way means having huge success overseas, pioneering the country’s music market and laying the foundation for K-pop (ex. BOA – East/Japan etc.) For U.S and Europe it’s clearly BTS. 

Has there been anyone that can rival BTS’ impact on K-pop in the West? Psy‘s ‘Gangnam Style‘ was a one-hit wonder that only became a trend because of the choreo “horse dance.” 

So why does everyone keep putting down BTS’ achievements? All I see are people saying their seniors paved the way ㅋㅋㅋ. I hope people realize how hard ARMY in America worked to get BTS on radio and that was the reason for BTS’ successㅠ.

  1. [+453, -122] If their seniors truly paved the way wouldn’t EXO BIG BANG have been the first to attend Billboard Music Awards before BTSㅠㅠㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 
  2. [+423, -27] I’m curious about this too. How exactly did the previous generation of idols, their “seniors,” pave the wayㅋㅋㅋ?
  3. [+420, -29] It’s not just 1 or 2 idol groups that knocked on America’s door, its just that one group was successful in the end. No SEA singers have been able to successfully enter Korea either but if one of them breaks through doesn’t it mean all the groups that came before them paved the way?
  4. [+93, -16] Aren’t most of them Big Bang fans?? Big Bang was the first Korean act to rank on Billboard 200 paving the way for BTS to succeed. Without Big Bang there would be no BTSㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  5. [+77, -3] Overseas fans and a handful of Korean fans sent handwritten letters, bouquets, and gifts to DJs so that they can spin, promote and air BTS on radio. American ARMYs really put in a lot of effort and worked hard as a team to get them on Spotify, Radio, Muse. Isn’t this what pioneering is? Even though the previous generation of idols went there first the results were different. BTS didn’t gain their foothold through nothing. ARMY worked really hard. 
  6. [+55, -105] I hope ARMY can recall the days their faves were just nugu centipedes rolling around in dirt before they hit it big ㅋㅋ
  7. [+54, -0] BTS achieved what they have now not by following the paths of their seniors or riding the Korean Wave but through pioneering their own way. 
  8. [+43, -6] This is what Big Bang fans have always been saying. If you want to see ARMYs come out in the comments just mention their faves breaking into the U.S market and they suddenly attack you with the group’s music achievementsㅋㅋㅋ Do they think their faves are at GD’s levelㅋ ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ ?

KPOP NOW – New K-pop documentary claims SuperM received a Grammy nomination

Article: “++K-Pop’s supergroup SuperM nominated for a Grammy Award”

Source: Pann

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 – PlayM files complaint against Apink Chorong’s childhood friend claiming Chorong assaulted her in the past

Article: APink Chorong, “retire from the entertainment industry,” agency files criminal complaint 

Source: Newsen

Apink‘s Chorong is being accused of assaulting a childhood friend in the past. 

On April 1st, PlayM Entertainment filed a criminal complaint against Kim at the Gangnam Police Station for defamation and attempted blackmail using false facts.

PlayM stated, “Recently Park Chorong received threatening messages from Kim, a former childhood friend and threatened to expose her if she didn’t retire from the entertainment industry. Chorong and Kim were childhood friends who were close in the past but drifted apart due to a certain “incident.” Chorong admitted there was an argument and dispute between her and Kim but apologized for any uncomfortable feelings she may have potentially caused but made it clear to Kim that she never committed the assault she was claiming and tried to fix the relationship. She even responded to Kim’s request to meet and made efforts to communicate with Kim by contacting her first.”

“However, Kim continued to overturn the facts, cancel the meeting suddenly, transcribe calls with Chorong’s sincere apology and report it to the media with false facts. Chorong is suffering from extreme mental distress and has come to a situation where legal action is inevitable. We have reviewed all the necessary materials for the complaint process and if false facts are found, we plan to take strong legal action including filing civil and criminal complaint for defamation and attempted blackmail.”

  1. [+310, -3] Wait so Park Chorong never assaulted her and its not hakpok [school violence] and Chorong still met with her to talk nicely and she threatened her using those recordings as proof and didn’t even apologize? Is that what’ I’m hearing?
  2. [+242, -25] Eh? Isn’t Chorong famous for her good personality? ㄹㅇ This is like poking a beehive. I mean she didn’t even assault her but met up with her to fix the relationship and she still threatened her? This is why its important to make good friends so that you don’t get shaken up with trash people from the past
  3. [+230, -2] Huh? This friend is absurdㅋㅋ;; the agency is did well
