FNC denies false claims made by Seolhyun's CF body double



Article: Seolhyun used a body double for her CF ? Company retorts, "The body double was only used for underwater filming"

Source: E-Daily via Naver

A model who was Seolhyun's underwater body double in her SKT 'Sol' CF claimed that it was her body for the entirety of the CF while FNC claimed it was just for her underwater shots.

1. [+8,844, -343] Her body double is such an attention wh*re

2. [+6,601, -259] So she was only used for the underwater shots but she talked as if she was in all the shots...

3. [+5,269, -393] Everyone already knows Seolhyun has a great body though

4. [+4,751, -290] Why would the CF bother using Seolhyun if they were going to use a body double the entire time? The CF is all Seolhyun minus the underwater shots

5. [+4,912, -510] Seolhyun still has a better body than her

6. [+1,021, -57] I wouldn't use this model anymore if I were a CF agency. She's putting down their main model like this.

7. [+876, -69] You were paid to be a body double, just keep your mouth shut if you did your job.

8. [+656, -31] The body double was only used in two scenes, one for the diving scene and the last when she's floating in the water ㅋㅋ but she talks as if she was the body the entire time ㅋㅋ what an attention wh*re

1. [+434, -38] That woman who wrote the post is funny ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+329, -45] Aren't we all tired of broadcast channels working with agencies to manipulate the music charts, of celebrities who dominate the media by servicing sponsors, of media outlets who are working with them to paint crap as if it's gold? To clean up the industry at all, we need to eradicate all of the agencies and broadcast channels involved with sponsors.

3. [+69, -5] CFs use body doubles all the time, even Jun Ji Hyun. The scene in her beer CF when she's in a gold dress and turned with her back to us is a body double. There's just no reason to specifically claim that it's a body double though... obviously this model is just thirsty for attention. Shouldn't she have just kept her mouth shut in consideration for the original model? That's her job as a body double, isn't it?

4. [+67, -36] Looks like this model is going to lose her job ㅋㅋㅋㅋ she was basically a body double for Seolhyun to keep her out of the dangerous waters and she's acting like it was some important job ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+62, -22] Who is going to hire this model anymore

6. [+49, -9] One of the stars most suspected of sponsor ㅋ

7. [+47, -17] She was paid to be her body double, why is she acting up now?

8. [+37, -18] In other words, it's like a stunt man who played as Won Bin's body double in a motorcycle accident scene coming out and claiming that all of the scenes in the movie with Won Bin were actually him

Girl's Day talk about their income from individual activities


Article: Girl's Day is honest about their differences in income from individual activities

Source: Newsen via Daum

When asked if Minah was paid for her solo album last year, she said with a laugh, "I had to pay the company back, actually". Sojin said she was "quite happy" with her 'Reply 1988' OST earnings while Hyeri said her income was "great".

1. [+548, -20] It's ironic because Minah's the one who kept the group afloat back when the group didn't even have an income but now that the group's doing well, she's the least popular.

2. [+530, -38] Cute answers for a sensitive question

3. [+317, -36] They're so cute

4. [+158, -4] Minah seems to have an easy going personality

5. [+127, -8] Hyeri could probably buy a building in Gangnam with what she made last year alone

6. [+91, -4] They should still be grateful to Minah

7. [+72, -2] Having a difference in income is inevitable, they shouldn't let it bring them down. There will always be more opportunities. I remember Soyu once saying that she was upset about always having to stay home while the other three were busy with individual activities but after she made 'Some' a hit with Junggigo, she's not only on all the TV shows but even got an MC spot at a year-end ceremony. Just work hard and quietly build your skills and unleash it all when the opportunity calls for it.

8. [+63, -6] Minah did so much for the group in the beginning. Unfortunately, her solo song and concept were just.... a mess.

9. [+35, -3] miss A's income distribution's a mess but I guess things are better with Girl's Day..

10. [+14, -4] Girl's Day really lucked out with all four of their members getting popular

11. [+13, -3] Hyeri was the most nugu member in the group, wasn't she? She was only known as the kid who got into a dating scandal with uncle Tony Ahn and barely had any presence until her life turned around with 'aiiing~'. She's now the trend.

1. [+1,021, -78] His title track: When I can't get massages..

2. [+765, -63] Even if I watch his stages, all I'll be able to think about is the massage parlor..

3. [+671, -64] The guy that went to the massage parlor, right?

4. [+581, -42] He used to be so popular back in the day...

5. [+480, -47] He should stick to visiting massage parlors, what's the point of releasing an album?

6. [+145, -5] The first celebrity to be kicked out of his own fancafe, the reason the celebrity soldiers unit was abolished, the one who made heelys popular, the man who traded the angelic Park Han Byul for a night at the massage parlor, the man who taught many boys out there that you should think before you use your d*ck....

7. [+150, -9] What a shame. Lost both his girlfriend and his popularity for that massage parlor ㅋㅋ

8. [+94, -5] I don't see his comeback being successful at all

1. [+407, -15] I've hated him ever since the massage parlor scandal

2. [+359, -12] He and Sangchu did a lot in abolishing the celebrity soldiers unit ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+314, -18] His comeback will be like dust in the wind...

4. [+20, -3] Disgusting ba$tard, where does he think he's crawling back out to

5. [+15, -2] Sometimes I wonder what goes on in a celebrity's head...

Actress Kim Min Jung + more speak out against sponsors on SNS


Article: Kim Min Jung shares respectable statement on issue of sponsors covered by TV show

Source: TV Report via Nate

On Instagram, "I hope that today's broadcast did not negatively affect all of the actors who continue to pour their sweat and passion out in each step they take towards achieving their dreams. I'd like to thank the TV show producers for covering what is actually happening right now. What hurt me the most was the story of the young girl who gave up her dreams because of these sponsor offers. What's bad is bad. This is a dream that can be achieved with your sweat, your tears, your hard work! Please don't think that this dream can be bought with money. I sincerely hope that this episode made so many of those who are responsible for this unfortunate situation look back and reflect on what they're doing.."

1. [+1,225, -18] For her to publicly say something like this makes me believe in the show more... I don't know how many there are out there but I bet all of the celebrities who've taken sponsors are shivering in fear right now...

2. [+1,098, -33] She's probably the most legendary out of all the child actresses. Her beauty remains unchanged. Such a classy type of beauty~

3. [+937, -21] She's basically saying that she's never had a sponsor

4. [+104, -3] She's a natural, talented beauty but is rarely in any works and is already 35 years old now... it's because of all the actresses taking up roles with their sponsors that there's no room for people like her!

5. [+87, -8] Usually child actresses like Kim Min Jung or Moon Geun Young don't have sponsors. It's the poor, powerless trainees or girl group trainees that get involved with sponsors. There's no reason for child actresses to because they already made so much money and already got so popular at a young age

6. [+85, -5] All those women who get lead roles without a hit drama to their name. All those women who you see all over the media? 100% sponsored

7. [+78, -7] For her to step forward and say something like this, it sounds like she's had a role stolen by a sponsored star ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+53, -2] If you're clean and have nothing to hide, of course you can come out and say all this stuff.. but I bet there are more who are shaking in fear right now.

1. [+8,118, -175] I remember hearing a long time ago that she's known for not taking sponsors. I figured it must be true because she barely gets any roles for how pretty she is. She's been pretty ever since her days as a child actress, barely got any work done too... Probably had all her roles taken away by sponsored women.

2. [+5,795, -75] What's bad is bad... probably one of the truest statements I've heard in the past couple of years

3. [+4,295, -68] What a sad world we live in. It's unfortunate for adults to be involved with sponsors but I can't stand that young teens are being abused in all of this. Adults should be the one looking out for them, making sure they're safe! I support Kim Min Jung's statement.

4. [+3,917, -458] The sponsors are bad but I think the celebrities are just as responsible for taking those offers. It's only until everyone rejects such offers that sponsors go away for good. Obviously it's still around because people are willing to take the offers.

5. [+1,388, -15] Words that can only be spoken by the truly innocent ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+1,089, -11] I always did think it was weird... rookies who get cast in movies or dramas who can't even act, who get articles featured on the main page for something random they did on TV... and on the contrary, you have so many talented, beautiful people who you never hear about or see on TV..

7. [+1,058, -5] She sure took a jab at many celebrities tonight I'm sure ㅋㅋㅋ

Article: Celebrity trainee A-ssi, "Every time I have to go up to the hotel..." breaks down in tears

Source: Newsen via Nate

"Dealing with sponsors was a way of life for me. There were so many people willing to buy you with money. I rejected it at first because I felt hurt by it but the offers just kept coming. I didn't realize how far it would go back then. They'd specifically tell me that they'd get me an apartment in my name and that they'll give me a set amount of money each month and how many times a week they'll visit the apartment. It was then that I found out that all of it was done through a contract. They asked me up to how old I was willing to service, and if I'd be okay with people old enough to be my father, my grandfather. They said that I had to send them my naked pictures because it would make me more likely to get picked."

1. [+1,341, -105] Why is she crying when she willingly gave them her body for such a huge amount of cash? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I'd feel bad for her if she didn't get anything in return but she got everything she wanted

2. [+1,211, -47] She chose this herself, she's just as bad as the sponsors...

3. [+1,144, -58] Didn't she accept the sponsors to go down the easy path? Why is she crying about it now?

4. [+76, -0] The rest of us have to work so hard just to be able to afford an officetel...

5. [+59, -2] What an idiot, she's the one who accepted the sponsor and now she's cosplaying as the victim??? There are actual artists out there who perform in the streets and go to auditions to achieve their dreams, what does that make them?

1. [+3,363, -88] The stars who go from being nameless to popular need to be suspected ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+3,238, -52] The industry gets dirtier and dirtier the more you know..

3. [+2,335, -262] This is funny ㅋㅋ the majority of them have sponsors anyway, who are they to be picking sides? Even Sung Hyuna sells herself for 50 million won

Article: Park Ha Sun, "I feel upset that a minority are making the majority get misunderstood"

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+591, -6] I feel like a lot more female celebrities are going to come forward with their own opinions and I bet a lot of them will have sponsors but act like they're clean

2. [+480, -39] Even if the majority gets misunderstood, it's reality, isn't it? You're a part of that same industry

3. [+350, -12] I honestly think top name celebrities should get together and reveal everything. Claiming that it's only a minority is just giving them another hole to escape through. This issue is too big to be just considered a part of the minority... I seriously hate it when people try to play down something that's clearly an issue by saying the majority isn't like that.
