Article: Koreans rank #1 ramyun consumers of the world 'shocking amount'

Source: MBN TV via Nate

One Korean eats 74.1 ramyun a year.

#1 Korea 74.1 per person a year
#2 Vietnam 60.3 per person a year
#3 Indonesia 57.3 per person a year
#4 + #5 China and Hong Kong

1. [+149, -5] Even our ramyun's a celebrity...

2. [+123, -6] I used to eat maybe 1 or 2 ramyuns a month but now that I'm living on my own, I eat 30 ramyuns a month at minimum..

3. [+112, -4] Ramyuns just one of those foods that you never really crave but someone starts eating it and you have to eat it too

4. [+15, -1] You never get sick of ramyun

5. [+9, -0] I can give up everything else in my diet but never ramyun and fried chicken

6. [+5, -2] It's because food is so expensive. Ramyun's perfect for the busy worker or student on the move...

7. [+4, -0] Sounds about right.. I eat it four times a week at least..

8. [+3, -1] Ramyun's the perfect meal


Jiyoung confesses she's wanted to go into acting since her debut with KARA

1. [+16,165, -323] Then why didn't you go into acting? Why did you go through with KARA, what a selfish b*tch..

2. [+13,860, -161] I bet she'll interview about how much she misses KARA when she's back in Korea

3. [+12,378, -194] Not actress material

4. [+10,464, -179] So she used KARA???

5. [+1,733, -27] She should be on the floor bowing out of gratitude to KARA tsk tsk. They took in a former iljin with barely two weeks of training before she got to debut with KARA. Then they hit daebak in Japan and she got into Sungkyunkwan University through special treatment. And here she is now, spending all that money after leaving KARA on a few months studying abroad and this abrupt Japanese debut ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+1,258, -32] She literally had to do nothing because she joined KARA late and could just bask in everything Seungyeon worked to bring the group up to that point

7. [+1,211, -22] Sounds like she never cared for singing and just put up with it cause she had to

8. [+1,206, -29] Thank you for leaving the group, Youngji's so much cuter than you anyway ㅡㅡ You sucked at singing and your acting's just as bad so you can stay in Japan for all I care

Source: Naver

1. [+3,533, -65] So they're creating their own town

2. [+3,255, -150] Is this that infamous SM nation? Why aren't they getting caught by the National Security Law?

3. [+3,107, -65] SM really knows how to make money

4. [+386, -23] Parts of it are open and I saw them selling EXO ice cream sticks for $6 a piece... mini ice creams the size of your fist for $18... worst part was that there were actually kids buying it. It's sick.

5. [+304, -17] Didn't they have SMTOWN oaths and stuff ㅋㅋㅋㅋ as SMTOWN's citizens or whatever ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+295, -20] They make money off of the weirdest ways

7. [+264, -13] They're seriously going to build an SM empire at this rate

8. [+208, -5] Guess it'll be a tourism spot for foreigners.. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[Pann] 'Blanc & Eclare' ads in Chinese malls

Reader request.


Pann: Wow, Jessica at Chinese shopping malls

1. [+50, -18] Jessica seems to have really strong self pride. She thinks she must look classy and luxurious or something. For her sunglasses brand to take place at luxury stores, she as a model doesn't fit the class/looks too cheap. Her pictures make the place look like some low-mid range shopping mall. As a designer and as a model, she has no value to her name without SNSD attached to it. I wonder what she's so confident about?

2. [+48, -3] She's obviously advertising her own brand. I doubt fans actually did all of this for her ㅋ Anyway, these pictures look boring. Can't even tell if she's advertising herself or a product.

3. [+41, -1] Seems like marketing. If fans really did all of this for her, she would've said something on Weibo about it.

4. [+12, -3] Wow... Jessica just took the entire place over

5. [+10, -0] Jessica's screwed if this venture goes wrong. No wonder she's so desperate to hang on to her Chinese fans, so she can sell one more product.

6. [+7, -17] A Korean person is doing well in another country, what's so wrong about that... sounds more like something to congratulate to me.

7. [+6, -11] Whatever, I think she'll be fine


[Pann] First Korean woman places at 'Fitness America Weekend 2014'

Pann: Korean beauty who isn't overshadowed by Western women + [2]

Yoo Seung Ok was the first Korean woman to place 5th at 'Fitness America Weekend 2014', a muscle mania competition held in Las Vegas, in the female commercial model category.

1. [+150, -5] She's Korean???? Wow, daebak;;;;

2. [+146, -6] Wow... She's the prettiest

3. [+74, -0] Look at her body..... how is her waist so thin and her legs so lean? And her head is tiny... She looks unreal.

4. [+59, -0] All of the Western women look like boards but she has a curvy waist, just look at that line... amazing;;;

5. [+49, -0] This woman has gone viral on all the male communities for being Korean but totally overtaking Western proportions ㅋㅋ

6. [+42, -0] Now she's what I would call Miss Korea material

7. [+40, -0] Hul daebak;; her body looks like a Victoria's Secret model

8. [+35, -1] There's no flaw on her body... totally daebak. I think she has the best body out of any celebrity I've seen to date. Even her face is pretty..

9. [+33, -0] Nevermind any suspicions of surgery, her proportions and body structure already looks so Western... First time in my life I've been so impressed over a Korean woman's body. Daebak.

10. [+28, -0] Yoo Seung Ok was born in 1990 and she's 172 cm tall. She used to be a Miss Korea contestant along with some other modeling gigs. She's a bio-industry engineer student at Gongju University.
