1. [+76, -2] They’re really crazy this time…

2. [+47, -4] I’m a Wannable but BTS really is BTS ㅎㅎ Wanna One is having a comeback soon, please cheer for them, too ㅠㅠ

3. [+47, -2] I’m a Wannable but I really liked BTS’ teasers. I like all BTS members especially the rapper line. As soon as it was 6, I listened to the song ㅋㅋ Congrats on 1 chart debut, Armys!

4. [+21, -1] So many people enjoy and like BTS’ music, there’s nothing to be afraid, Namjoon-ah. Enjoy it and feel it. You deserve to be happy.

5. [+11, -1] I didn’t expect it to reach 100K listeners… I don’t think it’s just Armys. A lot of non-fans seem to listen to them since BTS started charting on the billboard and became known in the US.

6. [+8, -1] So happy, there are many good songs ㅠㅠ And Wanna One is doing really well, too!

Jimin & Seolhyun’s history controversy gets mentioned on the news

Ahn Jung Geun as “Kin Dok Kang”, controversy of history knowledge

Girl group AOA Seolhyun & Jimin’s lack of history knowledge

Answered “Kin Dok Kang (Kim Doo Hwan)?” to a photo of Ahn Jung Geun while doing a personage quiz


Instiz: AOA’s Kin Dok Kang statement is even on the news

– Calling him Kim Doo Han is terrible enough but she even called him Kin Dok Kang

– I hope they learned their lesson. As idols, they should act like proper role models. I’m very disappointed.

– I didn’t even know about ‘Kin Dok Kang’ title until Jimin said it

– I can understand being ignorant but not knowing Ahn Jung Geun is just…

– When I see Jimin and Seolhyun on the stage later, I won’t be able to focus and I’ll only get reminded of Kin Dok Kang.

– I watched the news and the panelists talked about how idols only get trained and that the companies should work on educating them.

– I recommend AOA to watch Harbin episodes of 1N2D

Seolhyun gets called the trend of 2015 on Running Man

Seolhyun gets called the trend of 2015 on Running Man – K-POP, K-FANS

Seolhyun gets called the trend of 2015 on Running Man

Pann: Am I the only one who found it funny when Seolhyun was called the trend of 2015 on Running Man?

1. [+121, -35] The trend of 2015 is Hyeri or Hani. Hani won 1 by climbing back on the chart and she was cast on a lot of variety shows. Hyeri got 28 CF offers because of Reply 1988 ㅋㅋㅋ On the other hand, Seolhyun got nothing but ‘media-play’ title ㅋㅋ

2. [+94, -33] Honestly, the trend is Hyeri. I’m not a fan of both. It’s true that Seolhyun was popular in the beginning but Hyeri regained her popularity and pushed Seolhyun back.

3. [+87, -27] All Seolhyun can show off is her face and body. She’s not good at anything including singing, acting, and variety shows. There are a lot of celebrities similar to Seolhyun, such as Hyeri, Suzy, Naeun, Hani, Yura, etc. They’re all tall and have good bodies. They have a better image than Seolhyun because Seolhyun is recognized for her media-play.

4. [+42, -30] I’m a girl but you guys are too mean. No matter how jealous you are, Seolhyun is getting prettier and earning a ton. Don’t downgrade others’ hardwork and stop bashing them. You look pathetic.

5. [+38, -16] Her drama and movie flopped and she wasn’t popular on any variety show. But since the SKT CF, FNC made her the trend-dol. They’re scary.

6. [+24, -20] Aren’t there other idols that did better than Seolhyun this year? “Nation’s angel”? FNC’s articles are unpleasant. I don’t think she’s a trend. She was issued a bit but not enough to be called a trend. Or is it because she was at Blue Dragon Film Awards?

Red Velvet fans get criticized for their rude behavior

Red Velvet fans get criticized for their rude behavior – K-POP, K-FANS

Red Velvet fans get criticized for their rude behavior

Pann: Shocking brutality of Red Velvet fans

(Pann talks about how Red Velvet fans attack Lovelyz, Girl’s Day, Naeun, GFriend, Suzy, Oh My Girl, Eunji, etc)

1. [+95, -9] The funniest thing was this. In the beginning, Red Velvet fans lied that they have many male fans. But it turned out that they barely have any and even Lovelyz had more male fans. So they started saying, “but male fans aren’t loyal. Female fans are important because they bring money.” What crap is this ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+75, -5] There are so many rude fans of Red Velvet ㅋㅋㅋㅋ They’re so arrogant

3. [+72, -7] Expected comments: “They’re just pretending to be fans. And it’s true that my girls are pretty.” Red Velvet fans need to stop it already.

4. [+26, -1] There’s this one thing I just can’t stand. “We’re SM, a big company. You’re WM, Woollim, this, that, so we’re at a different class. Don’t compare. This is the difference between SM and small companies.” It was no joke when they were acting superior. I wasn’t a fan but it made me annoyed. I can understand them saying ‘God Irene’ ‘God Joy’ because they’re fans. But why are they putting down idols from other companies? Just because it’s Red Velvet from SM, it doesn’t make them any superior. They should appeal in other ways. Nobody envies them for the SM title.

5. [+20, -0] I just want them to stop calling Irene the top visual, it’s so annoying

6. [+19, -4] Apink has 40% of male fans and 60% of female fans. This is the best ratio for a group to last long. Red Velvet has 95% of female fans and 5% of male fans ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+15, -1] Do the fans think they’re from SM, not Red Velvet? Why are they so proud of SM title ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+15, -2] They always call Naeun a media-played goddess but they’re no different. When someone says they don’t find Red Velvet pretty, the fans put down the person ㅋㅋ Beauty is subjective. They think their unnies are the prettiest. How annoying.

9. [+14, -0] I read on Facebook that Red Velvet members all can sing but only a couple of Lovelyz members can sing ㅋㅋ

10. [+11, -0] They’re a legendarily rude fandom

11. [+10, -1] The funniest comment I read was that Wendy’s singing beats most rookie girl groups ㅋㅋ I won’t say much because I know how talented Seunghee, Yuju, Jin, and Baby Soul are but honestly, Yuju will beat Wendy.

12. [+10, -1] They think Irene is a worldwide goddess. It’s annoying how they’re trying to push her as a top visual.

Guillaume’s answer to why he lives in Korea

Guillaume’s answer to why he lives in Korea – K-POP, K-FANS

Guillaume’s answer to why he lives in Korea

Pann: Guillaume’s answer when he’s asked why he lives in Korea

Julian’s mother: “Why do you live in Korea?”

Guillaume: “That’s a good question. Because… I like Korea. I also question myself why I like this country. Honestly, I’ve been to a lot of countries other than Canada, including Europe. But whenever I’m in another country, I always want to go back to Korea.”

Mother: “Really? Did you feel the same thing in Canada?”

Guillaume: “I think my true home is Korea.”

Mother: “So you’re having a good life in Korea.”

Guillaume: “Yes, I really like Korea. I can’t describe it in a sentence, but I’m sure all of us feel the same. Korea is our home now.”


1. [+152, -0] Guillaume was tricked by a Korean fraud so he’s in huge debts. But he doesn’t hate Korea and still lives here. It’s just amazing

2. [+104, -1] Guillaume also lost a lot of things… It’s not just a matter of give and take

3. [+29, -1] He said he likes Bertrand because Bertrand doesn’t hurry Guillaume to pay off debt ㅋㅋ

4. [+24, -1] As a Korean, I do feel happy when a foreigner says he likes Korea. But our country overdoes it too much. We can just be happy inside, but we posts these stuff on the Internet and go, “he’s our team, he’s well-mannered.” Do we have to emphasize this? It’s like having a VIP guest and waiting until they’re satisfied. And when they’re satisfied, the whole country is excited…

Pann: Four singers who hit Melon’s roof this year

(EXO, Lim Chang Jung, Park Hyo Shin, Bigbang)

1. [+90, -5] Park Hyo Shin and Bigbang hit the space

2. [+71, -18] What? There’s one more singer who hit the roof, it’s not only 4 ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+70, -4] Bigbang and Park Hyo Shin hit the space

4. [+25, -0] Take down the post if you’re not gonna include everyone ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+23, -0] It’s not just the four of them ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+22, -11] BTS also hit the roof

7. [+22, -51] EXO is the only one that wasn’t 1 on a daily and a monthly chart with the roof song ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+17, -0] I think a lot of artists hit the roof this year

9. [+17, -0] BTOB also hit the roof… although it was far from hitting the space

10. [+14, -0] iKON also hit the roof with WYD ㅋㅋ They just didn’t promote the song

6. [+130, -135] I like how Bobby is easygoing and kind. I admit that Bobby is at fault for the disses. I hope he debuts with modesty


7. [+128, -49] Xiumin ㅠㅠ His smile is so pretty and he’s charming


8. [+115, -22] Chen… His smirk is my type. His personalities are also kind


9. [+109, -25] Yoon Doojun


10. [+105, -36] I love you Chanyeol. Always thank you

Full story of Miss A Jia talking behind Victoria’s back

Pann: Miss A Jia talking behind Victoria’s back with her friends

One of Jia’s friends posted Victoria’s pictures and videos and talked crap about her. Other friends retweeted the post and also talked crap about her.

The friends actually had met Victoria before. They met her at when f(x) had a schedule in Hong Kong. Victoria even told two of them “you guys speak Chinese so well. I forgot a lot of Chinese because I’ve been staying in Korea for so long”. The friends made fun of this and said “Song Qian who can’t speak Chinese”. They talked as if Victoria had betrayed China.

Victoria fans found this out and criticized them. It got big and Jia posted on Weibo:

“It’s OK to criticize me, but don’t criticize my friends.”

The friends are the ones who talked crap about Victoria, so why is she defending her friends? Victoria fans also criticized Jia for this mention. Jia deleted the post with her friends.

Later, Jia’s friend sent her this mention:

“Cheer up, I’ll forever be at your side. You’re better than Song Qian who can’t speak Chinese. You don’t have to care about how others see you.”

Before this, Jia had mentioned about the Chinaline(?) and said Victoria was in it, but she has no connections with Victoria. But on TV, Jia said she was the head of the Chinaline and mentioned Victoria.

She also said that EXO Luhan, Lay, Tao and Kris were in it, but EXO members clarified on radio that they have never heard of the Chinaline.


1. [+34, -0] I think they’re just jealous that Victoria is the most popular Chinese idol.

2. [+24, -1] I was first disappointed with Jia for the cart incident and I now completely dislike her for this ㅋㅋㅋ She knew they were talking crap about Victoria but she tried stopping them only once and left them. And she even defended her friends after. Doesn’t she know about the situation?

3. [+9, -0] Does she think Victoria is easy? Vic debuted in 2009 and Jia in 2010 and Vic is two years older. They’re not even friends and Vic is the unnie so I don’t understand why the friends are talking crap about her. And Jia even let them do it. She should’ve just said sorry instead of defending her friends. If she’s a celebrity, she should handle it better. 

4. [+7, -0] Maybe she’s the only one who made the Chinaline ㅋㅋㅋ
