2. [+114, -0] I'd believe it if you told me she was wearing underwear but I'd also believe it if you told me she wasn't...

1. [+90, -6] Honestly, there's no other singer like her who can win 7 crowns at her age and still manage herself like she does~

2. [+36, -3] 7 crowns, that's crazy... she's a legend. I also liked 'Hotline Bling' so I'm glad that won an award too.

3. [+36, -6] Sad that streaming's blocked for her new album

4. [+16, -1] Godyonce.. I wish she'd come to Korea again ㅎ

2PM confirms September comeback


Article: [Exclusive] 2PM to have whole group comeback in September... shedding their 'beast-dol' image for transformation into 'boyfriend-dols'

Source: Sports Chosun via Nate

1. [+234, -34] They were doing well until they started releasing bad songs like 'Crazy', 'Only One', 'Put Your Hands Up';; especially that put your hands up song, they just start shouting put your hands up until the song ends... do they not care about their song quality because they have a decent fandom power? They had some awesome songs in the beginning and middle but they just get weirder and weirder now...

2. [+208, -159] 2PM's honestly been on a downfall because of Jay Park ㅡㅡ they got a ton of hate because of that scandal. Who does Jay Park even think he is promoting in Korea again? He's the one who said Korean women were worth $12

3. [+174, -53] Jay Park really lucked out leaving this group, he's doing so much better

4. [+39, -21] They still haven'y disbanded yet?

5. [+30, -7] JYP talked as if Jay Park did something so scandalous that it would affect all of society but if that was true, why didn't they just take him to court and make him pay the price? Still something they've yet to clarify on

6. [+29, -8] Isn't there a drunk driver in this group too?

7. [+25, -26] Looking forward to this comeback, do well!

8. [+22, -1] I've noticed Park Jin Young gives his rookies good songs and then only gives them weird songs once they make a name for themselves... then he makes another rookie group and gives them all the good songs again...

1. [+1,090, -47] I still think it's a shame what happened to 'Our House' promos...

2. [+871, -38] Their concept for 'Our House' was so good, I wish they'd go with another concept like that again!

3. [+688, -42] I was sad about their last promos being so short, looking forward to this album and seeing them more ㅋㅋ

4. [+584, -42] Wishing the best for 2PM, Got7, and Twice ♡

5. [+495, -40] Don't lose strength, there will always be opportunities for those who are prepared! I support you

6. [+138, -10] I hope it's another great song like 'Our House'

7. [+133, -10] Can't wait, I want to see their comeback soon ❤️

8. [+120, -9] Can't wait~~~ do well!!

Article: Park Hae Jin, "Oh Yeon Seo's Hong Seoul, I have high expectations of her sync with the original 'Cheese in the Trap'"

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+577, -30] Wow, so they chose Oh Yeon Seo. She's going to be way more in sync than Kim Go Eun.

2. [+493, -24] This is amazing ㅋㅋㅋ Oh Yeon Seo's sync with the character is daebak

3. [+486, -23] She's going to be perfect for the character... they have similar cat eyes and I think she'll fit better with Park Hae Jin too

4. [+51, -3] Really nice of him to still be respectful to Kim Go Eun. Too bad Kim Go Eun's just... sig hㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+33, -3] Both her acting and sync with the character will be better... looking forward to the movie

6. [+27, -2] Oh Yeon Seo's eyes are already Hong Seol~ I'm glad she was chosen ^^

7. [+23, -1] Finally the casting team is doing their job

8. [+17, -2] Grea job casting her, she's practically 90% in sync with the character

1. [+5,178, -178] Visually, Oh Yeon Seo is the way better match for Hong Seol... can't wait to see how she looks in character now

2. [+4,640, -340] Wow, they actually chose her. If only the drama went with her to begin with too.

3. [+3,254, -138] Daebak, they chose her for the movie version~

4. [+3,138, -268] Great casting for the leads... she's a perfect fit for Hong Seol with the bubbly personality

5. [+569, -29] I really hope they dot his one right ㅠ hated the way the drama cut all of Yoo Jung's parts to focus on the piano rambling

John Park reveals he got an 800 on his SAT math


Article: John Park, "I got 800 full points on the SAT math portion, I worked hard for it"

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+386, -16] That's quite amazing... and to all those putting him down, it's not like you'd all get max points on a Korean test just because you live in Korea

2. [+316, -87] There are a ton of students from America who excel there but come back to Korea to become nothing... that's how much more advanced Korean students are

3. [+213, -61] The math portion on the SAT is not comparable at all to the math portion on the college entrance exam. There are a ton of Korean high school students who could score max points and above on the SAT if they spoke English and had the financial support to study over there. Any Korean student who goes there for an exchange trip can solve any of the math problems really easily.

4. [+22, -2] I guess all of the commenters here are super smart or something~

5. [+18, -9] Ehh.. I'm super bad at math but even I got 800 points on the SAT. I'd be impressed if he got 800 on the reading but I wouldn't be impressed with an 800 on math. On top of that, I'd be impressed if he got into the University of Chicago but Northwestern isn't all that... Either way, I support John Park because I like him as a person.

6. [+18, -2] Wow, the comments here are hilarious ㅋㅋ trying to make it seem like an 800 on the SAT is nothing to be proud about. Sure the problems might be easier to solve compared to what Korean students are used to but Korean students have their own standards just like American students have their own standards. Are all of you math geniuses?

7. [+13, -2] The SAT math is honestly way easier than the math on the college entrance exam though... getting a max score isn't that hard.

8. [+12, -1] Even American students aren't impressed by a max score on the math SAT. Most of the kids who get into prestigious schools get max scores on math so it's nothing to be so proud about.

9. [+8, -0] I do think that Koreans are at a bit of a higher level in terms of math skill when I see students who get high math scores in Korea get rejected from Korean universities but still make it into Ivy Leagues. I've never seen the SAT myself but it didn't look that hard when I saw the practice questions. What's more important than college admissions is your actual college career though. I heard that the major reason why Korean students struggle in American colleges is because they'll be able to follow along for the first two years but then classes change to lecture style in the last two years and it gets harder for Koreans to keep up.

10. [+8, -1] Within Illinois, the University of Chicago is like the Seoul University of Korea while Northwestern is like Yonsei

1. [+2,646, -51] Looks like he didn't fall asleep in class then

2. [+2,005, -33] He seems like such a clutz on TV that I never took him for the smart type, what a surprise that he's actually studious ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1,522, -31] Wow, 800 points out of 800

4. [+442, -6] It's true that the math section of the SAT is easy but I wouldn't say it's easy to get into Northwestern...

5. [+453, -12] I'm studying abroad in America and got 800 on the SAT math... there are a ton of Asian kids who get max points on it. Norhtwestern, however, is a super hard school to get into. I got rejected last year ㅠㅠ

6. [+407, -1] SAT math is easy but he got into Northwestern's economics department, it's a really good school~

7. [+424, -7] John Park is definitely not some easy variety star, he got into Northwestern, a school that's in the top 12 in America

8. [+329, -3] It doesn't matter if us Koreans think the SAT math is easy or not. John Park was born and raised in America so he received an American education, not a Korean education, so maybe he found the math part of the SAT difficult by their standards.

9. [+319, -2] Northwestern's a prestigious school in America... it's elite

10. [+299, -4] Getting an 800 on the SAT math isn't hard but I wouldn't say it's easy either. And for him to have gotten into Northwestern, obviously he excelled in other areas too.

Can Tiffany's two apologies turn back the public?


Article: Tiffany, two apologies in the span of 10 days... can she turn back the public's heart

Source: Sports World via Nate

1. [+2,508, -90] The first apology really was so bad. She was testing the waters before finally realizing that she can't just it brew like this... Either way, this will follow her for the rest of her life. What she did was basically the same as someone praising ISIS on the day of 9/11.

2. [+2,389, -128] But why do I get the feeling that someone wrote her second apology for her???

3. [+2,152, -111] Whatever, screw off you Japanese loving American

4. [+166, -19] It's too late. And we all know that Tiffany isn't that fluent in Korean judging from the shows we've seen her on ㅋㅋㅋㅋ her apology was too well written to have actually come from her ㅋㅋㅋㅋ farewell

5. [+157, -17] She could honestly be stoned on the streets and she would've deserved it ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+138, -21] Can we kick her out of the country already... kick her out and never let her back in!

7. [+124, -21] The scandal was way too big for her to turn back any hearts...

8. [+117, -14] Anyone who's seen what Tiffany has written in the past will know that the apology wasn't written by her

9. [+110, -12] The apology was 100% written for her ㅋㅋㅋㅋ How could someone who doesn't even know it's liberation day be able to write in Korean this fluently

10. [+106, -22] No, she will never turn back this heart!

11. [+102, -17] Too late for her to turn back any hearts. She lost it all...

12. [+81, -15] Why would anyone believe a celebrity's apology or reflection? They're just forced to say those things by their agency so they can make more money. Do you honestly think they actually feel sorry for any of this? They're only doing it because they have no choice, and obviously because she wants this scandal to pass over already.

13. [+76, -10] Let's be real, you didn't write that apology, an SM staff did ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ so just screw off to Japan or America
