Wanna One issues official apology over their 'Star Live' behavior

Article: [Official statement] Wanna One, "We apologize for disappointing you in our 'Star Live'... we will deeply reflect on it"

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+2,164, -78] Sigh, idiots... all those tears you shed, begging people to vote for you, and now you're acting like royalty now that you've gotten what you wanted. Tsk tsk tsk... Just shave your heads and go enlist in the army.

2. [+2,015, -64] That's enough, farewell now. You guys were acting like top stars with the way you were behaving in front of staff. Why else do you think this footage was released "as a mistake"? Had no idea the character of the boys the nation supposedly voted for was this bad... how disappointing.

3. [+1,760, -62] Farewell

4. [+152, -2] They're probably still going "f*ck, f*ck" over getting caught

5. [+149, -1] When they laughed while saying their phone number and telling fans to call them.. wow ㅋㅋㅋㅋ they totally think of their fans as utter fools. And yet they were up on stage thanking fans for their #1 ㅋㅋㅋㅋ gives me goosebumps...

6. [+138, -3] What's the point of apologizing now when everything's been exposed? It really was shocking... couldn't believe these were the same kids who were so desperate to debut on 'Produce 101'... Now that they've gotten what they wanted, they're nothing but complaints about losing sleep and getting paid and putting down Thai people... just disappointing.

7. [+130, -10] YMC needs to give these kids some sleep, they didn't seem like they were sane anymore. And Wanna One, your staff also have eyes and ears and they are deserving of respect. Not one of you was forced to become an idol with a gun to your head. Maybe because you earned this fame so easily but you never seemed to learn to treat people in the industry with respect;;

8. [+123, -3] With scandals like this, YMC or CJ are going to throw them out without the need to shield them because the group doesn't belong to them anyway. Once they go back to their agencies, they're not going to be guaranteed positive treatment even if they renew contracts. They screwed themselves over. They should always know to be careful no matter how famous they've become.

9. [+120, -2] Talking about handjobs while all the female staff are there, ugh

10. [+114, -1] That handjob statement... sigh~ especially when public sentiment is the way it is right now...

11. [+100, -1] Let me fix that apology statement for you: "We apologize for showing who we really are... we'll make sure to put on a better mask in the future"

12. [+94, -3] I had no idea this would ever happen to them... talk about a bomb on their comeback day ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

13. [+93, -1] Yeah, don't bother coming back ㅋㅋ ask whatever remaining fans you have for free handjobs ㅋㅋ I guess you won't be getting paid at all anymore ㅜㅜ and have fun with your morning poops, Kang Daniel~

1. [+26,735, -2,341] If they behaved like that without knowing that the mic was on, then their true colors were exposed. If they behaved like that knowing that everything was on, then they purposely said all those complaints about their company... It's barely been a year since they were desperate to be picked and debuted... Did you think your fans would support you forever? Stars are just a flash in the pan... you should never forget your roots because you can always lose everything in an instant.

2. [+19,561, -2,059] I didn't vote for you guys in 'Produce 101' or buy every album from your debut to this comeback without even looking at it first to see this type of behavior. I didn't set an alarm at 6 am to listen to your songs, to wait for your comeback just for this to happen. I didn't wait for you guys to be this disappointed. Please understand the mistakes you have made and give a proper apology in the future.

3. [+20,565, -3,081] Wow I still don't get how they could think it was okay to say things like "better get my swearing out of my system" when there are staff right there and talking about "handjobs handjobs" while calling out sasaeng license plates and talking about taking a dump and releasing their phone numbers ㅠㅠㅠ Please just disband Wanna One ㅠㅠㅠ Daehwi-ya, let's go back to Brand New ㅠㅠ

4. [+16,219, -1,212] Your words can end your career in an instant. Always act with caution.

5. [+16,523, -1,542] You guys wanted sleep so badly, well now you're going to have so much time to sleep until your back breaks^^!

6. [+9,415, -781] No one forced you to be idols, you guys wanted this so why whine so much about your lack of sleep and your busy schedule ㅜㅜㅜㅜ just quit it all and go live a normal life then ㅜㅜ

7. [+9,343, -971] We basically debuted a bunch of local thugs into celebrities ㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+8,780, -761] How you act when you think no one's watching is who you really are...

9. [+7,938, -609] Even if they didn't know that the camera was streaming, how could they treat their staff like that? And all those swears... they didn't just lose their roots, they were always like this from the roots ㅠㅠ the words that you say can say so much about you ㅠㅠ

10. [+6,972, -844] Please apologize for that handjob statement immediately


Article: Did Wanna One already lose their roots?

Source: Sports World vi aNaver

1. [+1,912, -105] They lost their roots a while ago... their manner of speech was just rock bottom..

2. [+1,767, -84] I was so shocked at hearing them scream and shout like that when all their staff are around...

3. [+1,723, -91] They were inconsiderate of the staff who work just as hard as they do... if this isn't losing your roots, then I don't know what is...

4. [+1,450, -96] Farewell~ you uneducated fools

5. [+560, -23] How dare the members who are minors talk about handjobs in front of their staff? So shocking to see them do all that aegyo in front of cameras only to turn around and talk about handjobs...


YG responds to TOP's army controversy

Article: YG "TOP's 'Flower Road' controversy? Not sure why something he recorded 2 years ago is a problem" (official)

Source: Star News via Nate

1. [+1,322, -209] The problem is that he's making an income while still in service unless you're all too high to understand that

2. [+1,186, -88] Of course YG is super fast with clarifications on issues like this

3. [+1,076, -124] Amazing that YG will defend you even when you've done drugs;

4. [+58, -12] Why not in a society where even an act of sexual harassment you did 36 years ago is still relevant? (in reference to a #metoo confession on Lee Young Ha that happened 36 years ago)

5. [+56, -12] It doesn't matter when you recorded it, it matters when it was released and being sold for income

6. [+47, -13] Yeah you produced it then but you're selling it now

7. [+31, -16] I still don't get why this is different from actors who release CFs after going into service??

8. [+28, -7] Why is it okay for actors to pre-film movies, dramas, and CFs before enlisting but not this?

9. [+26, -10] I don't really like TOP either but there are a ton of actors who release movies, dramas, and CFs during service so why is this an issue now? And technically GD, Taeyang, and Daesung are in service now too so why is it only TOP that's controversial? ㅋㅋ

10. [+19, -1] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It doesn't matter when he recorded it, it matters when the song was released ㅋㅋㅋㅋ according to that logic, he's free to release any album that he recorded before his marijuana scandal since it happened before it ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Even Swings apologized for this, why should TOP get a free pass?


Article: Why is only TOP dealt a strict hand 

Source: Star News via Naver

1. [+4,404, -609] I hate TOP and don't wish to see him again but I feel that it's wrong that other actors and singers are able to release things during their service but he can't. The only issue here should be if he recorded a song during service and released it.

2. [+3,527, -657] What about when your building is being rented out while you're in service, are you not allowed to collect rent on that property either? ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+3,273, -804] TVXQ, JYJ, E-Sens all released songs during their service, even sold jewelry, so why all this targeting on Big Bang? Because you're jealous it's charting at #1?

4. [+2,119, -478] This wouldn't be a big deal in the media if 'Flower Road' flopped ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ but since it's hitting daebak, all the jealous haters are coming out of the woodworks. I actually think it'd make more sense if the argument was that he shouldn't be allowed to release work during his probation but his service? Other celebrities have released albums and dramas and movies and CFs so what's the deal?

5. [+426, -96] Why haven't those celebrities who released CFs and albums not been investigated too?

Wanna One caught behaving inappropriately during live stream?

Article: Wanna One suffers a broadcast accident? From 'problems' to 'aggressive' actions, all exposed

Source: Joongang Ilbo via Nate

During a live stream before their digital song release, the members were caught on camera acting more aggressive than normal, with statements like, "Why haven't we been paid yet?", "Why can't we sleep?", "Are we not allowed to sleep here?", "I took a crap in the morning", "Let's release all our phone numbers", etc.

1. [+1,254, -100] What were they thinking of their fans when they said all this? Even if he didn't know that he was on air, why would he say things like "call me" after showing his number and things like, "I better get all my swearing out before getting on air" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ totally ruined their comeback day

2. [+1,211, -81] I was so shocked when I heard them say "I better get all my swearing out before getting on air f*ck f*ck" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+1,129, -79] This shatters my image of them

4. [+224, -17] There were a ton of staff with them and yet they were acting like clowns ㅋㅋㅋㅋ why did Kang Daniel say "I took a crap" totally shattered his image for me

5. [+202, -26] Kang Daniel "I took a crap" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ well it's about time that stupid fangirls woke up from their delusions. We already knew he was nothing more special than Yook Jidam since he dated her and all ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ obviously his stupid fangirls are still going to shield him everything despite it all ^^ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ have fun wasting all your money on him ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ And whining about why they aren't allowed to get any sleep... ㅋㅋㅋ let's see if you're still whining about that when all you have time for is sleep because you're not popular ㅋㅋㅋ Let's be real, you guys have nothing going for you after you disband other than Kang Daniel ㅋㅋ the rest of you are nobodies

6. [+202, -19] Sungwoon-ah, you should've gotten your swearing out of your system at home

7. [+199, -16] #1 The biggest problem is that when someone asked why there were sasaengs, another asked "Free handjobs?!?!?!"... no matter how bad of people sasaengs are, why would you say that about them? #2 Some of this behavior would've been excusable if they were in their private dorms but... all their staff were there around them and yet they were still whining about work, swearing, taking a dump... I just can't shield these two things.

8. [+173, -7] If they were acting like this when it was just them, I'd be disappointed but let it go... but their staff told them to start getting ready but they ignored them and kept speaking informally and all other types of nonsense... They have no basic sense of respect.

9. [+173, -13] There's another video of one of them calling sasaengs free handjobs... can't tell whose voice it is but... their comeback day is ruined... ㅋ

10. [+166, -11] It's scary how fast they're crumbling with how fast they shot to fame

11. [+154, -14] Ah... Honestly, I don't think there's anything for them to apologize over since they technically didn't do anything wrong and it wasn't an official public event or anything. This does, however, break my image of them ㅠㅠ and for idols, image is everything... ㅋㅋㅋ I feel sad for the fans who spent money and time to get them these schedules that they're whining being too busy over, and the fact that they whined about only getting paid 20% around staff who are just as busy as them but earn less... ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ That statement about Thai people was racist... and Sungwoon swearing was just... I never expected these people to be super moral, upstanding people in private or anything but this is just... shocking.

12. [+147, -7] I was so disappointed when he was like "this is my number... hit me up"... what does he think of his fans? All I can image is how many times they must've ridiculed us in their minds while calling us their "fans" ㅠㅠ I feel so grossed out and sad...


Source: Nate

1. [+1,129, -89] They begged to be picked so fans picked them only for them to whine about having too many schedules, not getting paid ㅋㅋ.. and speaking so informally around staff members "free handjobs" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Ugh, this totally shatters my image of them

2. [+1,063, -55] They're going to realize how scary it is when loving fans turn on you

3. [+1,006, -51] They're going to regret this video for the rest of their lives

4. [+165, -10] Park Woojin and Bae Jinyoung are in the screencaps but did not participate in said controversy at all

5. [+156, -11] I lost all affection I had for Kang Daniel when he shouted out "I took a crap!!!!!" ㅋㅋㅋ There are so many staff around them, why act so cocky like that like they have the celebrity disease?;; It's obvious what kind of people they are now

6. [+136, -5] It has barely been a year for you guys... it was just yesterday you were doing aegyo begging to be picked!!! And now you've debuted, you think you're above it all???

7. [+126, -4] You could tell Park Woojin and Bae Jinyoung were uncomfortable with the situation. Bae Jinyoung didn't say a word while Park Woojin kept trying to change the topic by talking to staff. Not sure why these two's pictures are being used for all the articles ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+122, -7] So disappointed in Kang Daniel, he's been rude ever since his cat scandal

9. [+120, -5] I was a fan so I had no idea they'd make me drop them so fast on their comeback day, no less. I get that they're working hard for late pay but please think before you speak... They're so young, they don't know how to wait for the big picture;; and they were treating older staff like they were invisible

10. [+108, -3] I work in the industry so I'm not surprised with their behavior. The majority of celebrities are complete thugs. They'll swear over everything and abuse their power whenever they can. Park Bogum is praised for a reason... he'll go out of his way to bow and greet even the youngest of staff members. People like him are rare...


Source: Naver

1. [+2,248, -167] Don't lose your roots

2. [+2,101, -230] They should know that their character is like a boomerang and acting like that is only going to come back right to them

3. [+1,933, -140] They need to admit to their wrongs

4. [+1,329, -139] Obviously they knew cameras were rolling if they were like "let's release our numbers"?

5. [+950, -89] Lost all respect for them hearing them go "f*ck f*ck f*ck" to get all the "swearing out of their system before the show"... If you hate the rules so much, why'd you decide to become an idol? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ There are so many kids who'd rather be in your place ^^ farewell for real

6. [+847, -69] This wasn't a mistake or just a one time thing, it shows that this is who they really are

7. [+830, -83] Whining about not being able to sleep because of a busy schedule? That's a dream for some people

8. [+768, -66] Amazing that they still have fans trying to defend this. They had all that staff with them and yet they kept swearing and acting rude, calling out their numbers and sasaeng car license plates... Ironic to think that these were the same kids so desperate to debut before and now they're already complaining about their schedule and being paid; it's not like any of this was said in the comfort of their private dorm either

3. [+246, -123] This is why you can't believe a celebrity's image on TV ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ traitors ㅋㅋ

4. [+208, -96] They're over before their official disbandment

5. [+215, -115] Disappointed in their music, their character... just go on hiatus. Why bother being busy when you aren't being paid and getting harassed by sasaengs? Just stay off TV and take a break. Fans don't need you anymore either.

6. [+207, -34] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Wow, they're the first idol group I liked since entering my twenties and this is so shocking... I guess the shields for male idols really is huge because they'd be getting 100 times more hate if they were a female group ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+99, -32] Hugely disappointed in Kang Daniel, Park Jihoon, Ha Sungwoon, and Lai Guanlin... please don't speak like that in front of your staff

8. [+88, -33] They shot to fame too fast for their own good...

1. [+807, -37] I watched it and they were just lacking in basic respect... disappointed

2. [+757, -39] Well, thanks to your mistake, we were able to find out just how low these thugs can drop to~ ㅋㅋ

3. [+757, -37] Farewell...

4. [+94, -5] They're just kids without respect. Acting all arrogant with staff around, being loud... You could tell they're rowdy kids with no standards in life. Add some popularity to their arrogance and their cockiness knows no bounds.

5. [+89, -5] It was horrifying to see rookies acting like that around staff... if they got any popular, their arrogance would be through the roof.

6. [+87, -4] I don't think it was a mistake at all, I think Mnet released it on purpose to expose how rude they really are ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+82, -3] Feels like Mnet has a lot of pent up feelings abuot them~~

8. [+80, -3] They're calling the release of that footage a mistake but it's such a blatant exposure of what they're really like... I'm sure a lot of fans are disappointed

9. [+71, -4] I did a double take when I heard "hand job"... and when they were reading out the license plates of sasaengs and giggling over handjobs, I got so much goosebumps... how could you speak like that in front of your female staff? ㅋㅋ

10. [+69, -5] Tonight's thug is naya na ♬♪ tonight's rude attitude is naya na ♬♪

11. [+57, -5] Nono Mnet, you did good. That wasn't a mistake.

12. [+56, -0] I'm pretty sure Mnet meant to release this. Imagine how rude they were to staff all along... the staff probably had enough with them and just leaked the video.

13. [+51, -6] I bet the idiots are super scared right now. Their true colors have all been exposed... they can run the gears in their heads all they want, there's no solution to this.

Male fans make a show of leaving Irene after finding out she read a feminist book

Article: Red Velvet Irene's 'feminism' controversy... hit after reading '82er Kim Ji Young'

Source: Seoul News via Nate

Some male Red Velvet fans have declared that they are officially leaving the fandom after Irene revealed at a fan meet that one of the latest books she read was '82er Kim Ji Young', a book they claimed is feminism material. After posting pictures of burning her picture or throwing her merchandise away, they left comments like, "I'm disappointed in her", "I regret ever thinking of marrying you", "Bad b*tch", and "Don't act so naive to the world. She needs to realize that the majority of her fans are male and it's wrong for her to make them feel bad when they're spending money on her".

1. [+3,054, -171] "Thought of marrying you" ㅋㅋㅋㅋ what do you expect from loser trash?

2. [+2,926, -179] What in the world, all because she read one book?

3. [+2,552, -158] Why should Irene have to care about what idiots think about her reading tastes? She probably doesn't even know that they're alive

4. [+233, -29] Having dumb fans like them probably isn't of any help to Irene anyway ㅋㅋ leaving the fandom is doing her a favor ㅋㅋ

5. [+221, -17] "Marriage" ㅋㅋㅋ he must be crazy. Don't get ahead of yourself when Irene would never even look at you.

6. [+218, -23] Does she not have the freedom to read what she wants? This isn't the 70s, you know.

7. [+201, -17] Hilarious to think that some pathetic loser was thinking of marrying Irene when she doesn't even know who he is because he's nothing more than an ATM

8. [+197, -18] I read that book too ㅋㅋ this is actually a great opportunity for her to drop the idiots in her fandom

9. [+165, -19] Sounds like she just read books off the best sellers ㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+159, -16] At this point, you can tell how bad the issue of misogyny is in Korea...

11. [+120, -12] No sane woman would ever want to date men like that

12. [+105, -14] Why would this be controversial? I'm a man and read that book too... what's so wrong about feminism? Why are kids so dumb these days...

13. [+104, -11] This is hilarious ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ he "thought of marrying her" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ idiots, don't let the door hit you on the way out


Source: Naver

1. [+13,687, -743] This book is a best seller for all age groups, not sure why it's controversial for her to read it... and so what if she's a feminist?

2. [+8,455, -324] All this fuss over nothing

3. [+8,520, -525] Their argument is the same logic as saying anyone who's watched Kim Ki Duk's movies is a sex criminal like him... it's sad to think that our country's understanding of these social issues is still so behind ㅜㅜ

4. [+1,963, -85] Can we still call this society fair when this much of a fuss is being kicked over a woman who read a book about another woman's life?

5. [+1,662, -79] If you're going to leave, please do so~ it won't make a difference at all ㅎㅎ You wanted to marry her? Date her? I'm actually so glad delusional people like you are leaving... bye bye~

Yoona proves she's more than just a pretty face on 'Hyori's Home Stay'

Article: Yoona, sorry for labeling you as a princess

Source: TV Report via Nate

1. [+376, -16] She's so pretty but doesn't act prim about it at all. Such a hard worker! She knows how to do so many different things ㅠㅠ

2. [+365, -15] Cleaned the kitchen and the bathroom toilet all without having to be prompted. Everything about her is hard working, even her looks ❤ Talk about a goddess ㅎㅎ

3. [+301, -21] Pretty, caring, good cook... as a fellow woman, she makes me feel so jealous and envious... Guess I'll just make myself some kimchi pancakes today since it's raining

4. [+48, -3] I actually have a problem with the assumption that pretty girls all act like "princesses" ㅋㅋㅋ just because a pretty girl is shy or quiet doesn't mean she thinks she's a princess.. it's why so many pretty girls go out of their way to act more outgoing or tough because of those assumptions..

5. [+41, -6] Yoona has never had a princess disease. Ever since her rookie days, she's always given her all on variety shows and actively participated in everything.

6. [+35, -2] I remember at the Baeksang awards last year, Kim Yoo Jung was giving an award speech and Yoona realized she was in the frame and distracting from her so she inched her way out. Made me think that was so nice of her.

7. [+22, -0] She's not just a pretty face, she's a hard worker at everything she's tasked to do. There's a reason she's loved so much by her fans.

8. [+22, -0] I also thought she was just a pretty face but I was mistaken~

9. [+21, -1] Yeah, a lot of people like to assume Yoona's personality for her because she's pretty (how she's emotional or acting pretty for the cameras) so I'm glad she was able to prove she's more than that. I fell for her after seeing what a hard worker she was ㅎㅎ Glad she's going with season 3 as well.

10. [+8, -1] ㅋㅋ She's definitely not the gentle type ㅋㅋ she's not shy, she says what's on her mind, she doesn't hesitate, she knows what she needs to be doing ㅋ she has a very easygoing personality, I like that ㅋㅋ
