Students participate in a studying program for 30 hours

Article: 'Studying hard for 30 hours'

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

Students from a women's high school in Busan are participating in a program called '30 Hours of Changing Myself' that is modeled after an ancient saying that "studying is not about using your brain but using your butt". Participating students are required to study in their seat from 7 am to 10 pm for 15 hours in this two day program, for a total of 30 hours of in-seat studying.

1. [+540, -71] I thought this picture was from China for a second. But... does sitting in your seat for a long time guarantee that you'll know what you're studying? What is the point of this?

2. [+359, -40] Focus is so important when you're studying... we all know that forcing yourself to sit in your seat for that long doesn't mean that you'll necessarily be studying well. Why does our country still insist on outdated methods like this? It's the most ineffective way to study.

3. [+338, -58] Amazing. I truly believe that their efforts will come back to reward them. Effort never betrays you...

4. [+27, -4] Do you guys honestly think this is sane? Having them sit like robots and shove information into their heads like this? Korea, we need to change our way of thinking. We can't let ineffective methods like this be glamorized in the media.

5. [+22, -5] Studying is not relative to how long you sit there. Studying is relative to your focus. Physical labor like moving bricks is relative to time but studying is not like physical labor at all. Sitting for as long as you can while lacking sleep is not an effective method.

6. [+19, -1] Studying using your brain for 1 hour > studying on your butt for 30 hours

7. [+12, -0] There can't be another country like us

8. [+12, -2] Are they serious about the studying with your butt part ㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+10, -1] It's not like any of you guys are doing it, these girls voluntarily signed up to do it so at least show some support instead of putting them down

10. [+6, -0] Are we seriously doing this in the 21st century right now;;


Choiza to reveal all about his relationship with Sulli on 'Disco'

Article: 'Disco' Choiza to open up for the first time about dating Sullli on TV

Source: Sports Chosun via Naver

1. [+5,673, -132] They're going to be in so much trouble for the rest of their lives if they don't get married

2. [+6,040, -359] Choiza has issues. He clearly sees Sulli acting immaturely, and as the older man he should be advising her that it's not good for her image or her future to be acting like that... but he shows none of that. He's a bad guy.

3. [+4,514, -139] Hasn't he always talked about Sulli everywhere he went?

4. [+3,861, -158] Just shut up already if you care about Sulli at all

5. [+3,167, -102] Does he really need to share the story of their first kiss though...

6. [+1,007, -25] Representative example of a man who isn't acting his age

7. [+975, -25] I wish he'd shut up. Always talks about Sulli on every TV show he's on. What's wrong with him, why can't he act his age?

8. [+930, -25] Soon he'll start sharing the story of their first night in bed together ㅋㅋㅋ probably already told all of his friends

9. [+807, -15] He surely knows that his young girlfriend is the butt of all sorts of sexual jokes all over community sites, can't he just shut up and stop talking about her...;? I seriously don't understand him.

10. [+751, -19] All he ever talks about is Sulli ㅋㅋㅋ I'm sure he wants to show off but come on, shut up already if you're not going to marry her


Article: 'Disco' Choiza to make honest reveal of his first kiss with Sulli to their dates

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+1,227, -16] They're pretty much engaged at this point ㅋㅋㅋ it's going to feel like a divorce when they break up ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1,152, -13] I bet Sulli likes it when he acts like this

3. [+931, -37] Just get married already

4. [+80, -1] He may be old but his mental age is the same age as Sulli. Only trashy little kids act the way he does... bragging about his girlfriend to everybody and proving stuff they did together like this.

5. [+78, -2] Both of them seem to be the type to share and brag everything about their relationship

6. [+61, -2] How is revealing everything from their first kiss to their dates romantic at all? I like Sulli, CHoiza, and Dynamic Duo but Choiza really is a master at using Sulli to get media attention. It's off putting to watch, actually. Even if Sulli consented to him talking about her all the time like this, he should know better to show consideration for her..

7. [+45, -3] Really doesn't act his age, tsk...

8. [+36, -1] Choiza himself is the one cheapening Sulli's image. Does he really need to show off about his first kiss with his girlfriend? He isn't considerate towards her at all. Why is he so desperate to tell everyone how many times they went on dates, how many kisses they shared, how many this and that.

1. [+847, -49] First kiss, first date, kiss selcas in bed, this couple just feels like a married couple already ㅋㅋ..

2. [+541, -17] I bet we'll get wedding articles soon

3. [+88, -12] If I were Sulli's father, I would've half killed Choiza already

4. [+83, -14] How comparable to Jang Giha. He needs to stay quiet, how can he be this careless while dating a younger girlfriend?

5. [+80, -7] Is it necessary to reveal your kiss like that too.. ㅋㅋ


[Pann] More instances of Shinbi's attitude issues?

Pann: As expected of Shinbi of Girlfriend

1. [+131, -6] Wow, I went to go check out the video after reading the comments and just look at her facial expression here;

2. [+112, -21] But of course Girlfriend fans will start posting pictures of them looking close with one another and comment like, "What's wrong with you!!! Our kids are nice to each other!!!" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+95, -51] She's kind of like Krystal

4. [+69, -0] You can tell that Yerin and Shinbi try to intimidate the other members

5. [+65, -2] Shinbi also made this facial expression on a radio show when the host asked them to compliment each other ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ she looks so peeved...

6. [+56, -1] You can kind of see the oldest Sowon realize that Shinbi has a dangerous personality and adjusts the atmosphere around her on reality shows. I know for sure that one day Shinbi is going to get burned big if she keeps this up.

7. [+52, -1] Probably cocky because she's the center of the group as the main dancer ㅋㅋ when she's only famous at all for being a knock off Jessica. I used to like her at first but after seeing her make all these facial expressions and act the way she does, I hate her now ㅋㅋ there are already so many Shinbi posts on Pann already about her attitude, does she not realize that she's only 2 years into her career? Stop acting like a top star, Shinbi-ya

8. [+51, -0] Umji, Yoojoo, and Eunha seem nice. Sowon seems easygoing but she doesn't seem to properly lead as the oldest and the leader. Yerin and Shinbi are the most stubborn when it comes to being opinionated and definitely act up. Shinbi's a bit stronger in personality and fails to manage her facial expressions at all which is why she's getting more hate than Yerin right now.

9. [+42, -0] She is not a Krystal type. Krystal doesn't act this hard with her members;; don't drag Krystal into this

10. [+34, -0] I'm not a fan per se but I do really like Girlfriend and I often do feel put off by Shinbi's facial expressions and manner of speech.. ㅠㅠ

11. [+28, -12] She already looks like sh*t, but if her personality is sh*t too, she's damned

12. [+28, -8] She's always looking like that. Even when I want to join the fandom, seeing her like that just puts me off.

13. [+26, -6] She's already so ugly, why not smile at least to give herself a more favorable impression..

14. [+25, -0] Yeah, she can't manage her facial expressions ㅋㅋㅋ it's not the first time posts like this have been made either. Way too often...


Suzy wears a jacket to the airport in the heat

Article: Suzy's airport fashion, looks like just a coat on!

Source: Sports Chosun via Nate + Nate

1. [+544, -36] Surely the coat is sponsored if she's wearing it in this weather?

2. [+368, -39] Isn't she hot?

3. [+342, -83] It's so hot...

4. [+70, -18] I'm her fan but I wish JYP would get a new coordi

5. [+35, -14] It's hot to the point of death right now, are you serious. I get that the sponsored money is good but I couldn't wear that in this weather, sigh.

6. [+34, -17] I'm getting hot just looking at it

7. [+24, -11] Something about her clothes, lipstick, hair, and clothes don't fit this look at all

8. [+26, -37] So gorgeous, look at her proportions

9. [+136, -46] I don't care if this is Suzy, it's way too hot to be wearing this

10. [+129, -66] Is she insane? In this hot weather?


Hyeri and Kang Ha Neul cast as leads for MBC's 'Picnic'

Article: [Exclusive] Kang Ha Neul and Hyeri cast as male and female leads in MBC's 'Picnic'

Source: Ilgan Sports via Naver

1. [+5,176, -598] Hyeri got another lead? Didn't her drama 'Entertainer' flop...

2. [+3,384, -143] Sounds like the drama's going to be childish, a total flop... and is Hyeri just going to stick to acting from now on?

3. [+3,121, -119] An SM produced drama... I like Kang Ha Neul but it sounds like a flop already

4. [+2,449, -124] I have a feeling SHINee's Minho will be cast in this too

5. [+1,665, -60] Why does Hyeri only shoot dramas now? Nothing wrong with it but she should take breaks too. She doesn't feel fresh anymore because I see her so often.

6. [+872, -125] Hyeri is not lead material at all but she totally hit jackpot off of 'Reply'

7. [+444, -17] The plot sounds like some fanfic webtoon

8. [+563, -63] Why did Kang Ha Neul agree to this...

9. [+678, -109] Honestly Hyeri should take some time to work on her acting skills because she's still lacking them, especially to take leads...

10. [+402, -17] The story sounds like some webdrama. Can't believe MBC picked this up ㅋㅋ


Source: Nate

1. [+353, -25] Flop, flop. Even Ji Sung couldn't save Hyeri... ㅋㅋ

2. [+346, -24] Yeah.. uh... not feeling it

3. [+339, -31] Why did Kang Ha Neul take this....; sigh

4. [+37, -1] It's not that Hyeri's good at acting, it's that her character in 'Reply' was more like herself

5. [+35, -0] After watching 'Entertainer', Hyeri's not that good of an actor. Her character Duksun was apparently written to match Hyeri's character;;; if anything, Minah's the better actor than Hyeri. Hyeri just can't act.

6. [+31, -4] Why is Kang Ha Neul voluntarily lowering his level like this ㅠㅠ

7. [+29, -0] Hyeri hasn't been doing well since 'REply'........

8. [+26, -0] Hyeri's overexposing her image right now from 'Reply' to 'Entertainer' to now this...

9. [+18, -0] The plot is so.. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ the love between idols on a deserted island ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+18, -7] If it's produced by SM, I'll be skipping it
