Girl's Day reveal that their name could've been Ice Cream or Diamond

Article: Girl's Day, "We almost debuted as Ice Cream or Diamond as our team name"

Source: Herald Pop via Naver

1. [+991, -36] Ice Cream is alright though? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+610, -37] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Cute names

3. [+485, -42] ㅋㅋㅋ They match Girl's Day the best!

4. [+390, -41] I prefer Girl's Day

5. [+119, -5] If they had debuted as Ice Cream and later revealed that their name could've been Girl's Day, everyone would be like "Ice Cream matches you better~" ㅋㅋ

6. [+88, -2] Honestly even Girl's Day was a weird name when they first debuted. I remember on a variety show, even Sojin and Minah were really embarrassed to say their group name ㅋㅋ other teams would introduce themselves as a member of their group but Sojin was like "I'm Sojin" ㅋㅋ it was so cute ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+88, -3] Considering they debuted with the worst possible song under a totally tiny company, it's amazing how much they've succeeded...

8. [+79, -9] We're used to Girl's Day now but the name was really weird when they first debuted...

9. [+53, -1] SNSD was weird at first too ㅋㅋㅋ but we got used to it later

10. [+35, -1] Can't do Diamond now because there's a group named DIA ㅋㅋ


Clara and Hyorin attend 'Seoul Fashion Week'

Article: Clara 'a captivating bow'

Source: Mydaily via Nate

1. [+935, -53] She did it on purpose to show them off

2. [+729, -67] Shouldn't her hand be covering them? Not that I'm complaining...

3. [+106, -15] She sticks them out like that for people to look and when people actually do, she claims it's humiliating ㅡㅡ then don't stick them out

4. [+57, -14] CEO-nim, you like what you see?

5. [+42, -8] She totally intended for it... but who cares anymore when all she gets is hate anyway

6. [+28, -6] She shows the difference between looking sexy and cheap

7. [+23, -18] She's super pretty but acts so cheap... her face has a classy feel but her actions don't match up to it.

8. [+20, -3] She's at a crossroad in her career... and stars who end up in her position usually end up releasing a nude photobook later..

9. [+18, -9] Lee Hyori has always been known as a sexy icon but never have her actions ever felt cheap because she basically never acted like Clara

10. [+15, -1] Obsessed with showing her body off and yet she always complains about how the media only cares about her body

1. [+1,134, -30] Is the journalist her anti? It's clearly a bad picture and he still chose to share it. Come on, she's a female celebrity..

2. [+889, -24] Malicious picture ㅋㅋ

3. [+812, -40] Her face looks like 'Scream' here

4. [+301, -9] Anti journalist~ turned her into Scream ㅋ

5. [+288, -5] Oh come on, this is such a mean picture

6. [+237, -13] Her face looks like a skull here ㅠ

7. [+216, -8] Such a malicious picture

8. [+163, -7] Journalist, how would you like it if someone shared a picture of you looking like this? So mean

9. [+100, -19] Quite horrifying

10. [+65, -4] I'm sure there were a ton of other prettier pictures but of course they choose this one to upload...


Twice and Black Pink to face head to head next month

Article: JYP Twice vs YG Black Pink, who will be victorious?

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+745, -81] My vote goes to Twice!!

2. [+672, -85] I like Black Pink but I feel like Twice will dominate them

3. [+583, -45] For now, Twice is ahead by far ㅋㅋ

4. [+48, -11] I like both but I don't think Black Pink's at a level yet where they can compete with Twice;; at this point, it's Twice and every girl group beneath them, honestly......

5. [+44, -15] Anyone know even one of the Black Pink member names?

6. [+41, -12] Reality is Twice but I'm sure YG will use their company power to get Black Pink #1 on music shows

7. [+35, -8] Shut up and Twice

8. [+34, -7] Love Twice

9. [+33, -4] You can't really compare a group that's been at the top for the entire year since their debut to a newly-debuted rookie

10. [+29, -2] YG's back at it again with the media play ㅋㅋㅋ don't use Twice for your media play and worry about yourselves;; so obvious they're trying to use Black Pink to make up for 2NE1's demise ㅡㅡ

11. [+28, -5] My vote goes for Twice. Black Pink's debut track was a song that would've been difficult to succeed with had they not been under YG.

12. [+27, -3] Don't more people know Twice? I don't even know Black Pink that well

13. [+22, -3] Just listen to the crowd chants for 'Shy Shy Shy' in fancams...

14. [+22, -4] Black Pink has had almost zero TV exposure... The public will only remember faces they see most often so of course Twice will win this no matter what.

15. [+20, -8] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I bet YG will keep Black Pink only on 'Inkigayo' and manipulate their win and act like they won vs Twice in the end ㅋㅋㅋ They seem to think that Black Pink is actually competitively viable against Twice but I hope Hyun Suk feels the cold harsh reality down to his bones this time

16. [+19, -2] Twice is on the rise in all of physical, digital, and fandom size. I don't think they'll have a rival for a while...

17. [+19, -4] They're not even on the same level, how can you compare the two? ㅋㅋㅋ This is why people always slam YG for their media play

18. [+18, -3] Other than Twice or Girlfriend, girl groups have had no impact these days

19. [+16, -3] Can you even consider it competition? Twice has earned so much public recognition through music shows, realities, and varieties whereas Black Pink has what? A few 'Inkigayo' performances since their debut? YG's biggest issue is keeping their rookie group a mystery like this ㅋㅋㅋ they act like they're some hot shot veterans

20. [+16, -3] Honestly, Black Pink has way too strong of a 2NE1 feel;; when I first heard Black Pink's song, I thought it was a 2NE1 comeback ㅡㅡ


(graphic) Netizens raise money for a woman suffering from severe neurofibroma

Article: Woman in her thirties trapped in her own home due to face breaking down under neurofibroma...

Source: SBS via Nate

A TV show did a special on a 33 year old woman suffering from an overgrown neurofibroma since she was 2 years old. Its overgrowth has caused her face to grow in unnatural ways (her skull never fully formed) and the weight of the tumor has caused her facial skin to sag, eventually leading to the loss of her eyesight and the inability to properly breathe or eat (she requires the help of her parents and communicates through the computer).

Overnight, viewers managed to raise 700 million won in online donations and consultation has begun for her surgery to hopefully improve her living conditions.

at 100 days old

"I go on the computer or read electronic books or listen to the radio"

Her mother also suffers from neurofibroma


1. [+2,553, -22] My heart broke watching this yesterday... Of course it's painful for her but how painful it must also be for her parents having to watch all of this.. ㅠㅠㅠ I hope that this gets spread far and wide and more people support her

2. [+2,056, -35] I'm so grateful that she's still alive. I hope that medical advancements can help her in some way. She taught us so many things about life today. I love you, and fighting.

3. [+1,352, -22] I have a lot of respect for her father. Her mother is suffering from some type of illness with tumors and might've genetically passed it on to her daughter but he still chose to marry her and have a child with her and it must've been a hard decision to stay by their side this entire time but he still did it... Much respect.. ㅠㅠ

4. [+201, -2] I sincerely hope a hospital can help her

5. [+200, -1] Her disease isn't something that can be fixed... but this is a time where the help of plastic surgeons is much needed. Please help her live a life of an actual human being. Beauty isn't the focus here... I hope a talented plastic surgeon can help.

6. [+160, -2] To the people wondering why the couple decided to have a child, they didn't know the mother was suffering from anything until the pregnancy happened. It wasn't until after the pregnancy that she started getting tumors too.

7. [+142, -3] I heard they already raised 500 million won in donations in just a day. I hope that it all goes to the family.

8. [+121, -1] Breaks my heart to think just how bad it must've been that they decided to take it to TV like this. I was very touched with what a positive person she still managed to be and it made me reflect on who I am as a person too. I hope she gets cured and the whole family can live happily doing what they want ㅠ

Source: Biz Enter via Nate

1. [+2,159, -26] I hope shows like this and other shows about helping people and animals stay on TV for the next 10 years

2. [+2,082, -20] Instead of shows like 'Let Me In' that turn people into plastic monsters, we need more shows like this that help actual people who need it...

3. [+1,272, -13] PD-nim, thank you! Thank you for making your TV show about people who need actual help. I hope changing a person's life can ripple into changing the world to become a better place.

4. [+76, -0] So grateful for all of the people who donated~~

5. [+70, -0] I hope her mother is able to get treated as well too... hoping for better days for this family soon.

1. [+223, -5] I hope the surgery will be successful!!! Please!!!

2. [+210, -4] It makes me reflect on who I am as a person. All of the useless things I worry and complain about, the things I'm unsatisfied over, when I should be grateful that I'm healthy and comfortable... I hope she finds strength!!

3. [+173, -9] Wow, 700 million won overnight;;

4. [+26, -2] I hope all of the donations go to them... Can't imagine how painful it must've been for the parents to have to watch all of this unfold... I hope the surgery is successful.

5. [+25, -3] I cried so hard watching this last night. Everyone is the same on the inside... So sad that a normal woman is trapped inside a body she can't control. I wish her a safe recovery...


Park Yoohwan's 'commonlaw marriage scandal' comes to a close

Article: Park Yoohwan "Both sides reached an amicable settlement"

Source: Ilgan Sports via Naver

1. [+3,765, -57] Their mother must feel so depressed with both brothers acting up like this

2. [+3,161, -75] Amicable settlement (X) -> financial settlement (O)

3. [+1,892, -44] How depressing it must be to be their parents..

4. [+1,606, -39] Sigh... both brothers acting up...

5. [+988, -43] Sigh...

6. [+454, -24] How loyal of him to cause a scandal right after his brother's as if he had to follow up with one too

7. [+407, -21] He should be grateful he even has a career off of the back of his brother's with a face like that, should've been more careful to take care of his private life... both brothers tainting their parent's name like this.

8. [+348, -13] So he did live with her and it did count as a commonlaw marriage... all of this is so messy


Source: Nate

1. [+227, -7] Such a mess of brothers ㅋㅋ

2. [+177, -5] Hot brothers

3. [+152, -7] Can't fool blood ^^

4. [+29, -8] The downfall of brothers... but if you think about it, Park Yoohwan's scandal isn't much to make such a big deal about but it coinciding with his brother's scandal makes it seem exaggerated..

5. [+6, -1] So how's your brother doing? He's going to the bathroom often or?

6. [+6, -0] Well Park Yoochun owns real estate so they can live off of that probably......
