A person claiming to be a former FNC employee came forward with his notes on applying for his army postponement and being approved twice on the basis that he's in graduate school. He also provided text updates from the Military Manpower Administration approving such postponements. In an interview with CBS No Cut News, he said, "He went to graduate school as a tactic to postpone his service. He did not actually apply to the school or manage his classes himself. There are other celebrities who use this tactic. They will often have a specific employee to login to their online classes for attendance."

FNC responded, "Those are unfounded rumors. We do have staff to mange their classes but our celebrities are given tablets to attend their online lectures themselves. This is how all artists who attend online schools do it."

1. [+704, -7] At this point, he's set to be exiled from the industry

2. [+643, -10] So this whole thing was to get out of the army, I'm so disappointed in him

3. [+562, -7] Farewell~

4. [+37, -0] He's trash ㅋㅋㅋㅋ army, education, stocks

5. [+31, -0] I always wondered why he was in graduate school when he doesn't even look like the studious type. So it was for the army all along.

6. [+25, -0] Insider trading, scamming his way into a doctorate, evading the army, having someone take attendance for him... farewell, we won't be seeing you on TV anymore

7. [+24, -0] He needs to be sent to jail before the army!!!

8. [+20, -1] He's not the only one... all those stars who delay and delay until their thirties are using tactics like these

9. [+19, -1] It's not only him... so many idols are enrolled in cyber universities. Why do you think they have their names enrolled in classes they don't even attend?

10. [+16, -0] Nowadays, serving in the army is better for maintaining your popularity.

Yang Hyun Suk 'reveals' his son on Instagram



Article: "GD over dad" Yang Hyun Suk reveals son for the first time, baby fashionista

Source: Newsen via Nate

"Yang Seung Hyun. YGjunior. First reveal. GD over dad. Not sure of his debut potential in 15 years."

-

1. [+218, -11] How is this a reveal if all his face is hidden? No one was curious about his kid anyway

2. [+207, -7] Yang Hyun Suk is more cringe than you'd think....

3. [+192, -5] YGjunior. First reveal. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Yang Hyun Suk really loves himself

4. [+17, -3] I don't think anyone was curious

5. [+12, -1] Yang Hyun Suk seems to think of himself as bigger than he is ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+9, -0] He better knock it off if he wants to keep his kid out of hate's way because his own image is totally unlikeable

7. [+6, -0] YG is really bad at baiting fans while SM is good at it. SM will wait 3-4 years after debut to start giving their groups weird songs and start lengthening their hiatus so that the fans transition over to their new rookie groups. That way they're not impacted when their original groups retire. YG, however, has been hanging on to Big Bang and seems to have no intention of passing their fans on to their new rookies. Sure you can argue that the groups have different charms or whatever but idols are 80% about marketing. YG is screwed once Big Bang leaves.

8. [+5, -0] I bet he'll debut his own kid later

Krystal talks about her acting experience on 'Prison Playbook'



Article: Jung Soojung, "I don't pay any mind to hate comments... my unni Jessica is my mentor" (interview)

Source: Starin via Nate

1. [+412, -65] Well maybe you should start paying them some mind

2. [+349, -60] Your facial expressions are always the same too

3. [+318, -41] I'm suspicious as to whether Jessica is worthy of being anyone's mentor...

4. [+29, -5] Actors and idols have different vocalizations.. Suzy, Hyeri, and even Krystal seem to think that lowering their voice tone is enough for acting but they end up sounding the same no matter what emotion they're expressing. With actors, you can tell what emotion they're feeling by just the tone of their voice but idols sound the same whether they're serious, happy, or sad. They seem to think they'll get a pass as long as they speak in a low tone.

5. [+23, -9] I think she should start paying them some mind though???

6. [+18, -9] She was the error of the drama

7. [+16, -8] She didn't match the girlfriend role at all. Seemed like the character was supposed to be the cold but warm on the inside type, cold but weak when it comes to feelings... unfortunately, she has a resting b*tch face that didn't match her character.

8. [+15, -4] Something about her resting b*tch face just puts you in a bad mood when you look at her...

9. [+13, -4] If I had to choose, I'd say her acting is better than Hyeri's

10. [+13, -8] She totally doesn't care. Can she at least take acting criticism when it's due? Talk about attitude

11. [+10, -5] I didn't think her acting was bad?;;;;

12. [+9, -7] I actually liked her angsty love line with Jehyuk. Her acting was fine, don't pay too much mind to the hate comments.

Sunmi's 'Heroine' suspected of being plagiarized


Article: Sunmi under suspicion of plagiarizing 'Heroine'... song charting at #1

Source: Sports World via Nate

1. [+219, -16] The composer is Teddy ㅋㅋ one of the top 3 plagiarizers along with Kim Do Hoon and Shinsadong Tiger ㅋㅋㅋ by the way, Sunmi's 'Heroine' stage on 'M! Countdown' yesterday was lip synced but it was practically a copy of 'Fight For This Love'. The song and outfit concept is 'Fight For This Love' (https://youtu.be/X0pF2MTfl9o) and her dance concept is from 'Parachute' (https://youtu.be/-AWoZmAxKxg). Practically a perfect mix of the leg spread and the arm grab when the male makes his appearance.

2. [+187, -13] There have been other songs of hers under suspicion of plagiarism but this one is pretty much similar from the melody, arrangement, to style. The backdancer in the chorus, the hat, the military style outfits... https://youtu.be/KAczeHlchqw It's rare for the melody and even the music video concept to be this similar, this is really too much ㅋㅋ

3. [+185, -10] It's not just the melody but the music video too. The military outfit with the red hat and the dance, it's not just similar, it's the same. https://youtu.be/KAczeHlchqw Even with the dance, the only difference is the number of backdancers, the rest is the same overall. She seems to have copied the entire concept.

4. [+29, -7] Why is she so bad at singing though ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I was honestly surprised

5. [+28, -8] Teddy at it again.... tsk tsk

6. [+16, -5] I feel like I've heard 'Gashina' somewhere too...

7. [+8, -5] I doubt Teddy will bat an eye at this

8. [+7, -0] But with this case, it's not just the song. I understand that melodies can sometimes overlap but this has way too many similarities to just claim that Teddy never knew of the original song.

9. [+6, -0] I honestly like the song but it's such a blatant copy ㅜㅜ

10. [+4, -1] I saw a few articles up on Naver about this but they got deleted immediately;;

1. [+1,131, -203] Please clarify your plagiarism accusations

2. [+1,019, -186] This was totally plagiarized... 'Fight For This Love'

3. [+829, -173] I was honestly shocked with how bad her singing was on 'Happy Together'

4. [+788, -152] Say something, a clarification or anything

5. [+557, -113] Her song is really good but you have to admit that her chorus was totally copied...

6. [+400, -85] Sunmi lacks sooo much singing skills to become a real icon... and she's way too skinny to become a sexy star... she's a bit of a bubble waiting to burst

7. [+341, -72] Her singing is so bad, I thought she was tone deaf with the little I heard on 'Happy Together'

8. [+304, -69] Clarifying your plagiarism scandal is the first step here

9. [+257, -45] I don't even care about her plagiarism, she needs to improve her singing skills...

10. [+246, -52] Way too similar

Sunye to show life 'post girl group' as a mother of 2 in Canada on 'Stranger'


Article: 'Stranger' Sunye, life from nation's girl group -> ajumma in Canada

Source: Star News via Nate

1. [+430, -58] She used to be the leader of a girl group that was as big as, no, even bigger than, SNSD but she left the group in the air just so she can go off and get married. Didn't even bother leaving the group until it was too late and now she thinks she can come back on a TV show and act all sad? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 'Stranger'?? No one forced her to go to Canada. She's the one who wanted to get married and do missionary work but of course she's going to whine about the hardships on the show... sigh...

2. [+357, -40] She left Korea when her fans, producers, and friends needed her the most because she thought her marriage was more important than anything. It's sad that she thinks she can come back to being a celebrity when she chose to leave. None of us told her to leave. Quite selfish.

3. [+277, -37] S.e.l.f.i.s.h.

4. [+19, -3] She really thinks she can come back to TV after what she did to her group???

5. [+19, -4] Kim Heechul's the type of person who realized that he needed to keep his group up when they were causing drunk driving scandals and stuff and even sold his own car to stay strong for them. Sunye calls herself a leader but she basically ruined them after they hit the top. If I were her, I'd feel too sorry to my fans and members to show myself on TV again... As a former WG fan, this makes me uncomfortable.

6. [+18, -7] Not curious about her life at all. I liked her a lot in WG and I miss her songs but I find who she is as a person now so unlikeable...

7. [+16, -9] Selfish b*tch

8. [+15, -3] She was irresponsible as the team leader and held her team back, now she thinks she can come back on TV like nothing happened?

1. [+548, -166] She's a complete ajumma now ㅠㅠ

2. [+322, -97] Still as pretty as ever ^^

3. [+351, -137] I respect the decision that she made but I still don't get why as a leader she was so selfish about her own happiness, leading to her own team's disbandment. She could've at least left the group a little earlier instead of dragging it out for so long...

4. [+212, -78] Sunye unni ㅜㅜ I missed you ㅠㅠ my bias has always been Min Sunye since 'Irony' ㅠㅠㅠ

5. [+162, -28] She's such a negative example of an idol leaving a group ㅋㅋㅋ She should've planned it out better or at least passed the group on before leaving ㅋㅋ but no, she had to leave because she found love, which of course I can't fault her for, but if she was the leader, she should've managed her team better instead of smashing it to pieces. But who cares as long as she's happy, right?

6. [+82, -14] Didn't she say she was going to live quietly... why is she crawling back... seems like celebrities are all attention wh*res...

7. [+104, -48] Sunye unni I missed you ㅠㅠ I'll catch the episode

8. [+60, -10] Isn't a true missionary one that just quietly does missionary work without all this attention?

9. [+56, -8] She was truly irresponsible as a leader, what she did to the members was out of her own selfishness...

10. [+73, -26] She acted like she was done with celebrity life after she ruined the WG so why come crawling back now?
