Will 'Idol School' become the next 'Produce 101'?

Article: 'Idol School' "Because I'm Pretty" already hits 500,000 views... will it become 'the second Produce 101'

1 [+1,341, -186] From the style of their school uniforms to their PE uniforms, it's all very Japanese in style and it makes me uncomfortable to watch. If we keep accepting this type of content, people are going to get more used to it and we'll have more people who think perverse things like lolita and shotacon ar the norm. What a shame...

2. [+1,010, -120] I wish people don't get hung up over this one now ㅠㅠㅜ

3. [+798, -70] And yet the really pretty trainees are only the minority and most of them have iljin rumors ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+56, -14] Tired of these lolita concepts...

5. [+34, -6] Wow, I assumed they were Japanese idols from the pictures;; but they're actually Korean. Makes me so uncomfortable to see so much Japanese influence in our content.

6. [+30, -7] So sick of these idols. All the same concepts, looks, they just have different team names. I happened to watch a music show and they all looked the same one after the other. Girl groups in white dresses or tennis skirts acting all pretty and boy groups in black suits or Hawaiian looking shirts with beach hats;;;;

7. [+25, -30] Pann girls are already up in arms over this show when it's really no different from 'Produce 101' first and second seasons as to selling sex as a product ㅋㅋ

8. [+23, -3] Can we stop with these shows already? This is why all the kids are obsessed with becoming idols

9. [+17, -8] 'Produce 101' already had hidden elements of lolita and shota, and it caused older men and women in their 30s-40s, old enough to be these trainees' mothers or fathers, to become fans when they had never cared about idols in the first place. 'Idol School' is an even worse show in concept because it promotes the idea that you'll be fine as long as you're pretty, you don't need singing or dancing talent at all. If we allow lolita to continue in our content like this, the day where we're like Japan and dressing little kids up in swimsuits in sexual poses won't be that far off. Enough's enough already.

10. [+14, -6] Really feeling unsatisfied with the lack of creativity in our content these days. All they care about is getting attention, whether it's music, movies, or dramas.


TOP claims he broke up with the trainee who offered him marijuana

Article: TOP reps claim, "Trainee A offered the marijuana... they already broke up"

Source: Starin via Nate

1. [+1,154, -15] Oh so they were dating?

2. [+991, -20] They fine people for smoking for 100k won but the fine for marijuana is just 12k won?

3. [+796, -12] A collabo between TOP and his 'Birth of a Great Star' Han Seo Hee

4. [+88, -2] He's placing all the blame on the woman, how cool of him ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+80, -3] Quick comparison with E-Sens case: he was sentenced to two years of probation with a year and two months of jail and 160 hours of community service, 40 hours of drug education classes, and a 213.35 million won fine. TOP is being fined 12,000 won ㅋ no community service or drug education classes

6. [+69, -1] Yeah, I'm sure a trainee who just barely got out of 'Birth of a Great Star' had the balls to offer a senior of 10 years some marijuana ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+63, -0] He might as well claim they were dating to make him look less trashy

8. [+62, -0] That's so pathetic ㅠ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ both are trash but the fact that they're both blaming each other is hilarious ㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+55, -0] I knew he'd put all the blame on the trainee

10. [+53, -6] Maybe the girl went and told the cops because he broke up with her

11. [+47, -1] I had a feeling she opened up because their relationship went bad

12. [+29, -0] Can we just point out that TOP is only being fined 12,000 won though? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

13. [+26, -1] TOP is such a petty man. I get that she was just a quick lay for him but he should be man enough to not be dumping all the blame on her. He acts like he did nothing wrong and is putting everything on her. He's way older and has so much more money saved up as well as status and the best he can do is dump the blame on her?

14. [+26, -1] That's so petty... nothing cool about him

15. [+25, -1] He's really screwing her over

16. [+22, -2] So a 95er, a 22 year old trainee, offered him marijuana and an 87er, a 30 year old, took it and smoked it? Someone with so much more life experience, so much more status in society just took it? Even if it's true, his stance is so pathetic and petty


Article: TOP, "I stopped smoking marijuana after breaking up with trainee A"

Source: News 1 via Naver

1. [+546, -30] He's talking as if he only smoked it because of her

2. [+333, -6] So he's trying to claim a trainee offered it to him?? And then he quit after they broke up?

3. [+119, -8] You should've known better

4. [+94, -9] An ajusshi over 30 years old somehow got persuaded by a 20 something year old girl to smoke? Don't talk as if we're going to actually believe that

5. [+72, -5] He's blaming it on his trainee girlfriend...

6. [+72, -9] He's so pathetic, he calls himself a man while dumping all the blame on the woman? ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+50, -2] Whoever offered it to you doesn't matter. You made the decision to smoke it in the end. You chose to do it, you committed the mistake.


Profile on Korean-Nigerian model Han Hyun Min

Profile on 16 year old model Han Hyun Min. His father is Nigerian and his mother is Korean, and he is the oldest of five siblings. He gave up dreams of pursuing baseball because it was too expensive and then pursued modeling once he received a casting offer. He values the support of his family above everything else, especially his mother, who always assured him, "You're a special person and good things will happen to you.


1. [+6,841, -118] Hyun Min~ I support you. Please promote more in the future~ fighting!!

2. [+4,485, -97] Fighting, you have my support ^^

3. [+4,346, -149] Koreans, please set aside your bias and respect everyone for who they are

4. [+3,902, -88] He's so cool ㅠ I support you ^^

5. [+3,453, -243] We live in a global generation, it's time that our country keep up with the changes

6. [+486, -18] He's very mature for his age and I like that he's very direct about what he likes. I hope he becomes a worldwide model and helps Korea shine.

7. [+381, -28] He's so handsome and cool, I support him. Hope to see him more often as a model.

1. [+768, -20] I saw him on TV not too long ago and I liked how outgoing his personality was. He seems like such a social person and I hope that he grows up to be a fine man and becomes a famous model worldwide and help spread Korean culture ^^ don't pay any mind to hate comments~ ^^

2. [+699, -17] It's not easy living life as a mixed person but it can also be an opportunity... ㅎ He's cool and I hope that he is rewarded for his efforts.

3. [+11, -0] Hopefully he grows to be a great model...

4. [+10, -3] You're Korean to me if you speak Korean, simple as that

5. [+9, -0] He does have it harder than other mixed people because of his skin color. He's obviously Korean but he'll have to suffer questions about where he's from for the rest of his life...

6. [+7, -2] Anyone who stares at people of different skin color is tacky. The world is changing at a fast pace and people need to start keeping up.

7. [+7, -1] Amazing looks and a pretty heart. Do well, you have my support.

8. [+6, -2] I like that he's a teen who isn't afraid to speak his mind!!!

Prosecutors seek two years of probation for TOP

Article: Prosecutors demand 2 years of probation with 10 months of jail for TOP

Source: Sports Chosun via Nate

1. [+326, -14] If a non-celebrity got caught smoking marijuana, would prosecutors only seek probation? The law needs to be fair to everyone so why is it that it gives special perks to celebrities and higher ups?

2. [+255, -11] The worst he can get is probation, the law was made for the rich! ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+247, -9] Two years of probation?? Has it always been this lenient for marijuana?

4. [+18, -4] The law is just as high

5. [+15, -2] Two years??!!!! Not 20 years?!!!!!!

6. [+15, -5] He even got his hair done for this

7. [+12, -2] Kyah ㅋㅋ what a mess of a country ㅋㅋ lied that he only smoked twice, got caught and had to admit to smoking four times, still only comes out with probation~ win win for him~

8. [+9, -1] Well Park Bom didn't even have to go to the police station for doing drugs and smuggling them, this is why having back up is important


Source: Naver

1. [+1,641, -38] He better reflect a lot

2. [+1,394, -33] If it's probation, he doesn't have to go to jail so I guess he can continue his army service

3. [+1,036, -38] Sigh, such a disappointment... his poor parents too

4. [+983, -25] Farewell... and make sure you reenlist too...

5. [+880, -40] For such a handsome, wealthy man... was this worth it?

6. [+460, -53] Let me remind you that you don't need to compensate for your crime by coming out with better music

7. [+251, -28] One mistake is forgivable... but smoking four times is going too far

8. [+272, -36] Such a light prosecution...

9. [+152, -11] We expected this. He better reenlist, or volunteer for the marines. He needs to get his a$$ kicked to wake up.

10. [+211, -32] He doesn't care about his situation. He was on SNS liking a photo after transferring hospitals. Wake up..

1. [+485, -18] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ A luxury suit, hair and make up done up, acting like he's reflecting ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+360, -13] Was in a wheelchair one morning, better the next ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ sigh tsk tsk

3. [+323, -12] What's with all the make up, his eyes look like he was beat

4. [+28, -1] Does he really think this situation is appropriate to be wearing make up in? He has a long way to go if he's going to wake up to reality...

5. [+25, -1] I bet you 100% he didn't write that apology on his own.

6. [+21, -1] Where's your wheelchair

7. [+18, -1] Look at his hair gelled up, hilarious

8. [+13, -0] This guy really arrived to court with hair and make up in a suit and a luxury car ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ does he think this is an awards ceremony? Such an airhead

1. [+384, -21] She grew up beautifully

2. [+305, -12] Omo, this is daebak cool ㅋㅋㅋㅋ she grew up well

3. [+282, -14] Who's the person who made up the saying that pretty kids grow up ugly?

4. [+32, -0] Wow, this picture must be so meaningful to her personally too

5. [+23, -3] Had no idea the girl on the poster was Shin Se Kyung

6. [+16, -2] Amazing that you can still look the same even as you age

7. [+12, -2] She looks exactly the same, just her face grew longer ㅋㅋ

8. [+10, -0] Seo Taiji's a genius when it comes to ideas like this...

9. [+10, -1] Agh, she looks so similar

10. [+9, -2] I like her gaze as a little child more, it's so full of sadness
