MBLAQ's GO begins a full time streaming career


Article: MBLAQ's GO declares he will start a streaming career "I have my doubts about the celebrity industry... I'll be using my network"

Source: Ilgan Sports via Naver

1. [+237, -9] If he has his doubts about the industry, why is he using his connects to them?  Is it to use them for his own promotion?

2. [+194, -10] Has his "doubts" about the industry but he's using his connections to the industry to earn revenue on his stream, no? ^^ ㅎㅎ

3. [+163, -11] More like he had no place in the industry anymore with his declining popularity... it's not a job for anyone

4. [+67, -25] I support you!!! I always felt sad about MBLAQ never being more popular!! If only Rain took care of them more ㅠㅠ

5. [+38, -3] Hopeless for him to make it as a celebrity so he's making up some excuse to switch careers into streaming... hilarious how he blames the industry but then uses his connections in the industry to promote himself

1. [+278, -37] Selling himself for stream revenue?

2. [+257, -8] Isn't YouTube better than Afreeca these days?

3. [+240, -7] Why Afreeca? It's hard to last there unless you suck up to everyone... too many top name streamers that dominate the field and who are more than willing to destroy you if you don't stand on their side.

4. [+42, -1] So he doesn't want the hard work of being a celebrity and would rather use his connections to live an easier life as a BJ?

5. [+40, -0] This really makes me lose respect for him

6. [+36, -3] Just go out and get a real job man

7. [+21, -0] Streamers make the type of money the rest of us would make in a year lately ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+21, -0] It's going to be hard to make money as a streamer when you're in a public relationship

9. [+18, -0] I think it's worth a try if you used to be a popular idol... he probably still has fans around who will donate to his stream. It's easier for him in the end. Tons of celebrities stream nowadays...

10. [+10, -0] I've noticed that celebrities on the decline end up streaming on Afreeca or YouTube. It's just the way our generation is flowing...

Anonymous actor comes forward with sexual harassment allegation against Jo Min Ki


Article: [Exclusive] Jo Min Ki sexually harassed a man too "testimony from a current actor"

Source: Ilgan Sports via Nate

1. [+1,873, -9] At this point, Jo Min Ki needs to be arrested. He's trash, utterly disgusting.

2. [+1,597, -134] Seems like he isn't satisfied sexually so he looked for other ways to express that dissatisfaction... He's older and isn't satisfied with his sex life with his wife but he's a celebrity so he can't just go to room salons... sounds like he was under a lot of sexual stress.

3. [+1,415, -4] He's not human, he's a monster

4. [+84, -1] It just proves how dirty the industry is for someone who has done such horrible things to still get roles and dramas all this time. I bet there are people worse than him out there...

5. [+79, -0] Imagine how many victims were crying silent tears while he was on that variety show as the caring dad with his daughter. Disgusting, truly disgusting.

6. [+57, -0] A true pervert...

7. [+51, -0] Disgusting that he'd use his status and power to commit such acts... he's like an onion, you peel and peel and uncover more

8. [+46, -0] What if he has erectile dysfunction? I heard people who suffer from ED but can't control their sexual desires end up committing stuff like this...

9. [+42, -0] At this point, I'm going to assume that he has committed rape at some point as well. I don't think any victim of his who is more well known or got a benefit in some way will come forward.

10. [+37, -0] It's like all he could ever think about was sex;;;;

11. [+29, -0] After reading the article, it sounds like he just humiliated men verbally... I wouldn't call that sexual assault, moreso harassment. I've noticed that people these days aren't able to differentiate between rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment. Anyway yeah, Jo Min Ki is the devil himself... ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

12. [+27, -1] I agree with another best reply, maybe he does have ED and maybe that's why we haven't had a victim come forward with a rape allegation.

Julien Kang apologizes for calling curling "floor cleaning olympics"


Article: "*** is this sport?" Julien Kang under controversy for putting down curling

Source: Sports Donga via Nate

1. [+3,619, -84] Julien~ I understand wanting to see matches of your own country but this is Korea and this curling match above all else was Korea vs Japan

2. [+3,029, -94] He should blame the broadcast channels for not playing other matches besides curling, why put down curling instead? How thoughtless of him

3. [+2,630, -59] If his problem is that curling is taking up all the channels, then he should be blaming the channels, not curling.

4. [+100, -24] His brain has no filter ㅋㅋ

5. [+98, -1] It's not right at all for him to put down an entire sport like that instead of blaming the channels for only playing curling

6. [+93, -24] I did think it was a problem that all three channels only played curling when there are foreigners living in our country. You can't just play matches that Korean athletes are in. Then other foreigners can't watch matches of their own countries.

7. [+90, -5] Can't really expect a Canadian to understand the significance of a match between Korea vs Japan. I get that it's frustrating having all the channels play curling but why take it out on the sport?

8. [+65, -4] I get being mad that he can't watch ice hockey because the channels won't play it but why put down curling as some swiffer sport? That's so disrespectful. Our curling athletes waited 8 years for this opportunity, who are you to put down what they've worked for? If you wanted to see ice hockey so bad, you should've bought the tickets for it or gone back home to Canada to watch. Why b*tch in our country about it?

Article: "I was thoughtless"... Julien Kang apologizes for his statement on curling

Source: Sports Chosun via Nate

1. [+623, -29] Julien-ssi, the Olympics are in Korea this year so of course our channels are going to show matches that Koreans are in, why would they show another country's match in the time that our own country is playing?

2. [+578, -32] He really doesn't think before he talks

3. [+492, -26] Please think for once in your life. How can you talk about the Olympics like that?

4. [+31, -4] Disappointed in him... he never should've said that about curling no matter how mad he was about the channels

5. [+25, -3] Go back to Canada if you like it so much... why bother living in Korea, a country that doesn't even play ice hockey on TV for you?

6. [+21, -3] Let's see you try and play curling ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+17, -1] Is he dumb? He could've just not said anything at all

8. [+13, -1] Stop working out and go work out that brain of yours

Controversial Olympic skater Kim Boreum wins silver


Article: Kim Boreum, a deep bow to the nation

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

1. [+1,463, -448] Seeing this makes me sad... I nonetheless congratulate her for overcoming the mental pressure she must've been under and winning silver. Hopefully this is an opportunity for her to mature and grow.

2. [+1,439, -574] Congratulations nonetheless!!

3. [+1,410, -506] Despite it all, you worked hard

4. [+180, -52] She worked hard, she did, but she shouldn't be apologizing to the nation but to Noh Sun Young. I congratulate her but I recommend that she give a genuine apology to her own teammate first..

5. [+140, -57] Look at the best replies, it's pathetic that Koreans are forgiving the attacker... praising her just because she won a medal? This is why victims are too afraid to come forward ㅋㅋ I guess iljins in school can get away with anything as long as they earn good marks ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+103, -60] Congratulate what!! She needs to learn some character before training her skills

7. [+100, -28] Should've at least said sorry to Noh Sun Young

8. [+84, -39] Wow... look at the change in reaction just because she won a medal

9. [+84, -35] She won a medal in the end... but I'm amazed at her mentality... to have won silver under all that stress.

10. [+54, -9] I feel bad for her on one hand since she won silver but will forever have the memory of it tainted by what she did, but on the other hand, I feel like she deserves the backlash that she got since she hurt someone else and that pain can't just be erased like that. None of this should've ever happened... she made too big of a mistake at too big of an event.

Article: Kim Boreum changes her controversy to cheers, a bow of deep apology

Source: Sports Chosun via Nate

1. [+1,260, -380] Imagine being talented enough to win silver even after your mentality came crumbling down through all that... If only she was more careful, she'd be a hero right now... Instead, reality is saying sorry after winning a medal. Such a sad situation...... Hopefully she's matured through this all. She put on a great match.

2. [+1,014, -467] I hated her so much but seeing her kneel in a bow in front of the Korean flag makes my heart hurt

3. [+955, -396] First time in my life not feeling anything over an athlete who won us a medal ㅡㅡ

4. [+88, -16] What we can learn from the comments today: it doesn't matter if you bully people as long as you get a top rank, which just proves that it isn't the victim who gets to forgive the bully but the public

5. [+72, -10] If she really reflected over this, she should approach Sun Young first and hug her in a sign of apology instead of sitting so far apart and ignoring her.

6. [+68, -16] These shields are making me throw up... if your own family member was bullied, would you be able to forgive them just because they studied hard enough to get a top rank? That's really how this works?

7. [+65, -13] She's obviously talented, why did she act in such a way... she could be getting the hero treatment right now

8. [+50, -8] So a medal forgives everything?? ㅋㅋ She should not be forgiven by the public but by Noh Sun Young. Funny how she never apologizes to her even now.

Ivanka Trump reveals she's aware of the popularity of BTS in the US


Article: President Trump's daughter Ivanka, "I know about BTS, they have sensational popularity in America"

Source: Segye Ilbo via Nate

1. [+922, -100] So can we not get BTS for the closing ceremony?

2. [+671, -53] BTS at it again 👍

3. [+381, -48] BTS is better on stage than EXO, better live and songs too

4. [+59, -5] Honestly and objectively speaking, BTS would be a better fit for the closing ceremony, no? They're more popular globally

5. [+55, -5] BTS is the best... our broadcast channels don't want to recognize it because they're too busy pandering to bigger agencies

6. [+50, -6] BTS is bringing so much honor to our country

7. [+49, -3] So many Pyeongchang athletes from other countries are upset that BTS won't be at the closing ceremony ㅠㅠ I even read an article about it

8. [+48, -0] BTS really must be popular in America if even Ivanka is mentioning them at such a public event

9. [+45, -5] BTS should be at the closing ceremony... unfortunate that they're not

10. [+40, -1] Whoever set up the closing ceremony has no idea what the current trends are... EXO instead of BTS? What a shame...

11. [+37, -3] If they're putting in an idol group at the closing ceremony for the sake of having a K-Pop group, why not BTS instead of EXO when BTS seems more popular??

12. [+36, -7] It's sad that everyone is too busy pandering to these big agencies and ignoring a group that is bringing proper honor to our country
