BTS skips BBMA after party to hang out with their fans


Article: This is why BTS is who they are, prioritized meeting fans instead of the after party

Source: Star Today via Nate

1. [+1,192, -22] They're kids who surprise you the more you get to know them

2. [+1,129, -18] I remember last year they were on V app instead of the after party too. I personally hoped they would just go and enjoy the party ㅠㅠ thank you for always thinking of Armies

3. [+1,014, -15] BTS just keeps setting records... They made my heart feel so full and proud today!!!

4. [+82, -1] I remember all those hard days in the past. Just because they were from a smaller agency, fans had to work harder to buy their albums and get them a rookie award and yet everyone accused us of sajaegi just because our agency isn't powerful. It was through all that sorrow and pain that they kept growing and growing and getting more popular. We know that they're extra cautious with their actions because they love their fans and don't want fans to be caught up in misunderstandings... which just cause fans to go crazy in love with them more...

5. [+80, -2] You're going to need achievements like this to be able to use headlines like "swept America", "shook up the world"... I'm tired of all the singers who media played off of their Hallyu popularity

6. [+69, -0] They said over a dozen, hundred times that the award was thanks to Armies, they're kids who truly make their fans feel happy

7. [+67, -0] They claim to love their fans no matter how much their position has changed. It might sound so simple but it's the hardest thing to do. Congratulations!! And hopefully this comeback will be the start of more happy promos in Korea too.

8. [+59, -0] I know some people are upset that they didn't go to the after party but their network is big enough... There are so many famous international artists who want to collab with them and BTS is just too busy to even do them all. A lot of worldwide staff participated in their new album and their newly contracted American agency has promotions and distributions underway that can't even compare to their previous releases. BTS is a group that got this far without network but through skills, effort, and character alone. Do you think all it takes is networking and singing English songs for an Asian artist to get this far?? No, BTS has done something no other has been able to. They don't have to attend parties, they don't have to go around networking. John Legend is already taking a BTS CD out of his bag and asking for an autograph. The members are also not drinkers so I don't think they'd be able to fit in with the party environment anyway... I think they did well to leave.

9. [+54, -0] I honestly thought they won the award due to having a lot of Asian fans... but it seems not the case after seeing so many American stars taking selcas with them. I personally find their song lyrics cringe but they're very catchy with good rhythm.

10. [+49, -1] Either way, the members don't drink ㅋㅋㅋㅋ and if they do, it's a couple glasses at most... I'm so glad to always be sharing this joy with them on V app after these events. So proud to be a fan of these superstars. Fighting~ let's fly higher, further~~

Sulli was originally cast for Jun Jong Seo's character in 'Burning'


Article: 'Section TV' Sulli -> Jun Jong Seo for 'Burning' casting

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+356, -63] The 'Burning' cast were acting so cocky at the Cannes and yet they flopped and didn't even come away with an award ㅋㅋ They ignored Koreans thinking they'd do well at the Cannes, I suppose ㅎㅎㅎ Let's not let them get away with it when they come back to Korea and act like they're apologetic and humble. They're only going to act sorry in Korea because they did so poorly at Cannes.

2. [+312, -29] I think Sulli would've matched better with Yoo Ah In ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+254, -32] Ah, Sulli would've matched that role too

4. [+32, -7] ㅋㅋㅋ Too bad the true colors of her character were exposed as soon as she debuted

5. [+29, -9] Sulli would've been better

6. [+27, -10] Sulli's character isn't problematic lately~

7. [+26, -10] Yoo Ah In and Sulli... it would've been a pairing of the two biggest attention wh*res ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+22, -8] Sulli might've been better. If she took 'Burning', this could've been a turning point for her acting career.

9. [+12, -3] I remember news of Sulli being cast for 'Burning' a few years ago got tons of hate and now everyone's saying she would've been better ㅋㅋㅋ you're only saying that because Jun Jong Seo had that character controversy ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+11, -2] As for Jun Jong Seo, well... unless her next movie hits daebak, I don't think she'll ever land a major role again... Even veterans like Choi Min Shik haven't been getting new roles after having three movies flop in a row. Movies take a lot of investments so they're not going to risk that by using stars with negative images.

11. [+10, -4] Sulli would've been too dumb to even understand the scenario.. Jun Jong Seo acted amazingly well in the movie but she has no one to blame but herself for the hole she dug herself into now..

12. [+9, -3] It was also Kang Dong Won instead of Steven Yeun in the initial casting ㅋㅋㅋ

Lee Hongki denies being a regular viewer of problematic Afreeca streamer BJ Chulgoo


Article: Lee Hongki, "Watching BJ Chulgoo's streams? It was by coincidence... I'm not that kind of person"

Source: TV Report via Nate

"Ugh you guys are driving me crazy. I never watched his stream when he was doing those gross things you guys are saying he does. I watched him by coincidence one morning while watching other things. What? You lost respect for me after this?? If you know me well, you'd know that I'm not that kind of person. What clarification are you demanding from me? I can't stop you from losing respect for me but I'm not that type of person. Let's stop talking about this."

-

1. [+1,827, -161] But Chulgoo's stream is trash... definitely not suited for minors.

2. [+1,208, -336] He's practically fighting with his fans on Instagram... I get that he's angry because he feels that he didn't do anything but his fans are still trying to piece together some proper feedback since it's a sensitive issue but instead of explaining what happened, he keeps expressing his anger at his fans and fighting with them. How different from Yoon Doojoon's feedback a few days ago...

3. [+783, -84] No one's yelling at him for watching Afreeca, it's because he watched Chulgoo of all people;

4. [+131, -18] After reading his clarification, he totally seems like the type to watch Chulgoo

5. [+129, -13] Even normal men know to skip Chulgoo's streams so for a celebrity to openly give him a stream donation, well.. ㅋㅋ

6. [+92, -15] The only idiots who enjoy Chulgoo's streams are kids still in school. Adult men don't watch him.

7. [+80, -12] Watching Chulgoo's streams is basically like admitting you're an Ilbe member ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+80, -8] Why would anyone watch someone so pathetic

9. [+50, -4] When is this guy going in the army? He's already 30 years old, stop delaying it, not even like his group is putting out any albums. Hurry and serve already.

10. [+36, -4] Why is he talking like that?

Article: Lee Hongki under controversy for watching BJ Chulgoo, it's always the one who farted who gets the angriest

Source: TV Daily via Nate

1. [+1,030, -175] I like that article title ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1,014, -115] I remember before Chulgoo put out his album, he said that he had celebrity friends too and bragged about how Lee Hongki is a viewer of his stream

3. [+253, -43] The fact that he even watched it once is already proof that he's an idiot. Farewell.

4. [+115, -25] What coincidence!!!! Chulgoo is always swearing and saying misogynistic things about women all stream long!!! How is that considered entertainment at all? Seems Lee Hongki would watch a stream that even puts his own mother down if he thought it was funny.

5. [+91, -15] I can understand watching a few streams out of curiosity but being a consistent viewer means that you agree with his ideas too

6. [+84, -10] Not Chulgoo of all streamers. I don't care how many times he's viewed him, the fact that he's a consumer of his content at all means that he agrees with those ideas.

7. [+76, -18] I'm a woman and I've always hated Lee Hongki so much. All those rumors... and just the way he looks, he looks like an iljin..

8. [+72, -8] Why is he speaking informally to his fans like that? Even Lee Soon Jae and Jo Yong Pil still speak formally to their fans. Fans are adults too, have some respect for them.

1. [+5,453, -749] I get that he's free to watch what he wants but it's wrong of him to donate money to a streamer who makes light of national tragedies...

2. [+2,661, -303] Of all the streams to watch, he chose Chulgoo's ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Actually, everyone should be more open with what kind of streamers they watch so that I can skip them from my life ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1,151, -69] Chulgoo is pretty much an ilbe member ㅋㅋㅋㅋ no normal person would watch his stream

4. [+2,036, -1,351] There's nothing wrong with either Yoon Doojoon and Lee Hongki. Don't witch hunt them.

5. [+673, -42] Fans are speaking formally to him while he speaks informally back ㅋㅋㅋ Lee Hongki would be under fire for attitude issues already if he was a female celebrity tsk tsk... kids who like him really need to wake up.

6. [+1,306, -858] Isn't he free to watch whatever he wants?

7. [+380, -5] Really shows how well Yoon Doojoon handled this

8. [+377, -20] Chulgoo is such trash ㅋㅋㅋ why is he yelling at his fans all informally like that, like he did anything good?

BTS wins top social artists at the 2017 BBMA + gives comeback performance




Article: [2018 Billboard Music Awards] "Crowd chant galore at the Billboards"... BTS wins an award + gives worldwide comeback performance

Source: Sports Chosun via Nate

1. [+354, -8] I'm so thankful for how hard the crowd reacted but there was just too, too, too much noise ㅜㅜ I could barely watch the stage

2. [+334, -5] The way Kelly Clarkson introduced them to the stage... the way Armies waved their cheer sticks and chanted along... the way the presenter said he was so moved by the moment.. that's BTS!!!

3. [+296, -7] Goooooosebumps.. daebak

4. [+53, -1] Goosebumps... they're not even introduced as a Korean singer anymore... they're introduced as a worldwide boy group

5. [+46, -0] I don't think there is a camera director in our country or in the world who can properly film their performance...

6. [+42, -1] Their live was daebak!!! I'm always so surprised at how perfect their lives sound with how rigorous their dances are. Imagine how nervous they were before getting up there... they did it all with their skills alone. Their comeback stage was truly the best!!!

7. [+40, -1] It gave me goosebumps ㅠㅜ to hear them be introduced as one of the hottest boybands of the world... I thought it was a straight up BTS concert ㅠㅠ ㅋㅋ

8. [+39, -1] I got goosebumps when everyone got up to clap

1. [+540, -17] Every single idol that tried so hard to advance into America failed but BTS did it so proudly with their skills alone

2. [+431, -14] Wow, even Taylor Swift is a BTS fan. They're global superstars.

3. [+318, -7] ㅋㅋㅋ True superstars ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ this is Taylor Swift we're talking about...

Kim Go Eun gains 8 kg for her new movie role


Article: "Gained 8kg weight + saturi" Kim Go Eun transforms for her new movie

Source: Herald Pop via Nate

1. [+630, -78] I do really see Lee Soo Ji in her ㅋㅋ

2. [+453, -88] Psy..

3. [+340, -114] She is really ugly

4. [+31, -1] Why is it that when male actors gain weight for their roles, they're called "amazing", but when female actors do it, they get judged on their looks?

5. [+26, -7] There have been some bad rumors about her going around in the movie industry. I hope she goes back to her roots and gains some respect. Ever since 'Goblin'... she needs to realize that a movie's daebak isn't just from one person's effort alone. It's the culmination of the stars, staff, writers, and director.

6. [+25, -4] She's an actor, all she needs to worry about is her skills. How pretty are your own faces that you're judging others?

7. [+25, -2] Pretty people with monolids really shouldn't gain weight, this shows that

8. [+21, -6] I see gagwoman Lee Soo Ji in her..

9. [+20, -2] So hypocritical how people call Ryu Jun Yeol handsome but Kim Go Eun ugly

10. [+16, -6] She's not even that good at acting, why go so far as to gain weight too ㅠㅠㅠ
