Picture of Kim Hyun Joong in training


Article: Kim Hyun Joong, picture at training revealed... composed facial expression

Source: Sports Donga via Naver

1. [+4,674, -242] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He seriously looks like a commoner ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He's going to have to get some dinner in him to get some fat back on his face ㅋㅋㅋㅋ what a shame

2. [+3,844, -110] He doesn't look composed, he looks like he's lost his soul

3. [+3,138, -141] What a pity, what a pity..

4. [+2,623, -155] Uhh.. fa-father...?

5. [+2,332, -149] Hopefully he matures a bit more in the army

6. [+1,318, -109] Those soldiers next to him.. better not joke around about his scandal in front of him. They might lose a rib.

7. [+806, -160] Without all of the glitz and glam, he looks like some ajusshi you can find your neighborhood. Proves he was all make up and clothes.

8. [+603, -65] He looks so pitiful ㅋㅋㅋ daebak dark circles

9. [+550, -39] It'd be a miracle if he didn't look this aged considering all of the girlfriend stress + training.

10. [+477, -65] Looks like he's aged a few years...

[Pann] f(x) on new CF set sans Sulli




Pann: f(x) shot their CF without Sulli

1. [+108, -0] I don't even notice that Sulli's missing, the four of them are just fine

2. [+65, -0] Why is it that Sulli is on hiatus but she still does individual activities

3. [+48, -0] Meanwhile Sulli and Choiza are out on dates

4. [+22, -0] Sulli claims she's on hiatus but she's in all these pictorials ㅋㅋ such a nuisance. Just leave her out and keep the group to these four. I barely notice her missing at all and they all look so pretty.

5. [+18, -0] I prefer the group just like this than with that nuisance Sulli

6. [+17, -0] f(x)'s worth as a group has gone up since Sulli left ㅋㅋ Amber's been doing well on varieties and Luna's all the rage with her singing

7. [+16, -1] People always used to say that f(x) would fail without Sulli but Sulli had a lot of personal fans who have all left. Her main homepage left the fandom and she doesn't even have one fanpage left to her name. I've been an f(x) fan for several years now and the members with the most fans are Victoria and Krystal. They have tons of Chinese unni fans and the two are more than enough for the visuals. Amber has writing songs going for her while Luna's the vocal carry. The group is just fine without Sulli ㅋㅋ and even better without having a member half assing the choreography ㅋㅋ

8. [+15, -0] I despise Sulli so much as an f(x) fan. I don't understand how she's always in pictorials while on hiatus from promos ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I'm fine with her taking a break and visiting the ocean and stuff but so soon after she declared her hiatus? Anyway, Victoria and Luna promised a summer comeback so I believe in them. I only support the four without Sulli, however.

9. [+15, -0] Just keep the group without Sulli. She's not even a good singer, she's no help to the group;;; Krystal and Victoria are more than enough to make up for the visual

10. [+13, -0] Sulli has really drawn a line between personal activities and team activities... Just a few days ago, she was in a pictorial but she of course she's on hiatus when it comes to group activities.

Source: Mydaily via Nate

1. [+302, -37] Her face looks so different from her pictorial yesterday ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Look at her laugh lines and how big her head looks, did she gain weight? And her fashion doesn't even match her, what's up with those sandals too ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+290, -38] Didn't she just say in another pictorial that "I'm not a little girl anymore~~ I was never allowed to show skin during my SNSD days ㅠㅠ" and now she shows up at the airport in little girl elementary school fashion. Her split braids and sandals are on fashion terrorism level ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+270, -33] Is this the fashion sense of a chief designer??????? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+45, -15] This fashion is so outdated ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ She's so bad at dressing herself ㅋㅋㅋ and she calls herself a designer

5. [+35, -13] She's 27 years old and look at her hair style... She said so herself that a 27 year old is no longer a little girl... I've never seen another 27 year old woman with that hair style.

6. [+20, -10] Notice how she only promotes overseas using Soshi's image.. because she knows that if she tried anything in Korea, she'd be ruined. She's just going to exploit her SNSD image to the foreigners for as long as she can by feeding their delusions ㅋㅋ

7. [+19, -1] She's the one who said she's not a little girl anymore and then she shows up dressed like a little girl ㅋㅋ personality disorder?

8. [+16, -2] I wouldn't wear those sandals even if someone gave them to me for free ㅋ

9. [+14, -0] Those sandals look like they'd take 30 minutes to put on

10. [+13, -1] I don't think even designer interns dress this poorly

1. [+4,737, -286] Hul, Kim Tae Hee!! ㅠㅠ

2. [+4,088, -372] Joo Won and Kim Tae Hee, sounds like a daebak~

3. [+4,000, -378] She really is pretty..

4. [+3,151, -349] She's so pretty, I'm so damn jealous of Rain

5. [+4,058, -1,631] I admit that she's pretty but... her acting is not

6. [+918, -97] I feel proud of her that she's still picking up work unlike Won Bin and Lee Na Young who just shoot CF after CF..

7. [+783, -74] At least unlike other top stars, she consistently picks up drama work

8. [+841, -169] Wasn't her acting okay in 'Jang Ok Jung'? She's better than the hopeless Lee Yeon Hee

9. [+661, -140] She's really been consistently picking up work, and please don't rag on her acting if you haven't seen 'Jang Ok Jung' ㅠㅠㅠ Fighting!!

10. [+409, -96] Joo Won and Kim Tae Hee ㅋㅋㅋ I'm actually feeling this combo

Chinese expert lists the Chinese movie industry, money, and the Korean system as reasons for Luhan and Kris' leave


Article: Chinese expert says the reason for Luhan and Kris' change of heart "Movies, money, and the system"

Source: TV Report via Naver

"The Korean entertainment industry is centered around music. Chinese celebrities start by training as singers in Korea. The Chinese entertainment industry, however, is centered around the movie industry. When Chinese celebrities who have trained in Korea return to China, they first wonder how to enter the movie industry. When Korean entertainment agencies aren't able to provide a way for them to enter the movie industry, the celebrity is left feeling unstable about his future.... Korean celebrities are also paid less in comparison to Chinese celebrities. Which industry would a celebrity prefer to promote in then?

Chinese celebrities are currently setting up their own personal studios once they get their name out there. The existence of the internet allows for cheaper promotion options, and the relationship between the celebrity and the agency has also weakened. Large Korean agencies, however, try to control the celebrity."

The expert suggested that in order to prevent Chinese members from leaving the groups/companies, that Korean companies give them more freedom, train them in the Chinese market, and work in cooperation with more Chinese agencies to manage their artists.

1. [+3,523, -100] It's all a ploy for them to gain popularity in Korea and then use it to make money in China. As if a movie industry advancement is relevant at all. Would the members have gotten this much popularity if they had trained in China and debuted there? ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+3,478, -110] There's no point in listing out all of the reasons. In the end, it was all a ploy for them to make as much money as comfortably as possible.

3. [+2,931, -90] If they hated the Korean system that badly and didn't like the restrictions that came with it, then why not just debut in China where the money's better to begin with ㅋㅋㅋ They voluntarily came to Korea to become idols ㅋㅋ

4. [+385, -4] If their initial goal was to become movie actors in China, then why did they sign contracts with a Korean agency to become Korean idols?

5. [+388, -9] The reasoning doesn't make any sense ㅋ Should've debuted in China to begin with then

6. [+376, -9] What is this bullshit reasoning basically demanding that SM take in these untalented kids, train them, spruce them up, all to basically let them make more money in China?

7. [+310, -10] What other reasoning is there other than to gain popularity and use it to set up their own agency and make more money?

8. [+270, -2] Funny how this expert is basically demanding that Korea reveal its idol training system ^^ Are you nuts, as if we'd tell you guys that kind of information for free

9. [+264, -3] Why can't they just have debuted in China to begin with instead of ruining other lives with their decision like this... Do they not care about the Korean members who will be suffering as a result of their actions.

10. [+233, -4] Ridiculous that they're eventually blaming Korean society for this. If they have such a problem with Korean society, they should've debuted in China to begin with. They should've never debuted in Korea at all. They basically used the Korean system to gain an advantage in the Chinese market.

11. [+222, -6] So they're asking that the Chinese promoting in Korea be put in a system that reflects how the Chinese market runs things? As if.

12. [+161, -4] Debut, betrayal, success?!!?!
