'Music Core' reflects on their decision to ban lip syncing

Article: MBC 'Music Core' CP, "More energetic ever since the banning of lip sync"

Star News via Naver

"The atmosphere of the set has changed ever since we banned 100% lip syncing. It's become more energetic and the stages have become livelier. Ever since we said that we refuse to put any artist on stage who doesn't sing with a voice, singers sing with more energy on stage now."

1. [+4,803, -55] Might as well be dancers if you're going to lip sync on stage ㅋㅋ I think Music Core made the right choice

2. [+3,660, -38] A singer should definitely be able to sing

3. [+3,454, -40] Should've been like this from the start. It was weird watching stages without live singing...

4. [+2,927, -35] I hope more shows pick this up~^^

5. [+2,787, -66] Good decision all around!! Who lip syncs nowadays anyway..

6. [+335, -6] Even after the change, I haven't really noticed any difference/live singing

7. [+294, -11] Looking forward to Hyuna's live

8. [+331, -49] Such a cruel decision. Now Jung Eunji has to sing the song all by herself ㅠㅠ and Girl's Day? Their live is so bad

9. [+289, -24] Poor Hyuna...

10. [+277, -14] No hope for Crayon Pop

Yura -> Minah -> Hyeri -> Sojin

1. [+6,162, -164] I think it was really thoughtful of Sojin to rank them according to age and put herself last  ㅎㅎ

2. [+5,289, -311] Girl's Day may not have a top visual but they also don't have a particularly below average member either

3. [+4,625, -404] No... Sojin, you're #1

4. [+4,000, -185] I like how thoughtful Sojin is for an idol ㅎㅎ

5. [+2,957, -157] How modest of her ㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎ

6. [+473, -32] I think Sojin looks the prettiest out of this comeback. Minah needs to put her bangs back down.

7. [+452, -37] I personally find Sojin the prettiest. Her older age gives her a certain aura.

8. [+421, -41] Even if Sojin's the oldest, I find her the prettiest.

9. [+326, -20] I find Sojin charmingㅎㅎㅎ She has a charm that just pulls you in

10. [+324, -34] I wonder what the rank would be like if all idols had to broadcast with bare faces

Oh My News via Naver

1. [+4,701, -192] Please just don't go into acting

2. [+4,493, -55] Well they have other groups with lots of members so why not have a group with smaller numbers

3. [+2,256, -509] Irene's so pretty

4. [+435, -25] Can we please get a fanclub for f(x) before the new girl group...

5. [+423, -58] Just don't drive an open car after you find success

6. [+378, -23] Lee Soo Man is hands off on the direction lately and every group that Lee Soo Man hasn't planned has been met with failure so far ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+322, -25] SM's finally realized... that the more male members you have, the better, and it doesn't really matter how many female idols you have in a group.

8. [+270, -42] Four members so they end up like CSJH and Milk~ ^^

9. [+226, -19] In the time you're planning that new girl group, please handle the issue of sasaengs with your current groups

10. [+212, -15] They need to focus more on SHINee and f(x), they're both in awkward positions...


High school students go against graduation photo rules for hilarity

Article: Uijungbu High School students, "Why can't our graduation photos be fun?"

No Cut News via Nate

1. [+620, -15] The student copying Chu Sarang was so funny, I had to save it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ The high school's known for having smart kids~ I thought it was cute and funny the way they did their graduation photos instead of following the norm ^^

2. [+584, -15] I think it's creative~ I don't regret having normal graduation photos but I was jealous seeing the amount of preparation the kids took with their graduation photos~

3. [+540, -14] I never knew much about this school but I now know that not only are they smart kids, but kids who also know how to have fun! ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+55, -1] I think the school should allow the photos~ It shows that they're not only smart kids, but kids who also know how to have fun. It's not like they're doing anything bad, they're just making memories with each other.

5. [+51, -1] I remember foreign medias talking about the school's graduation photos... their reactions were daebak... I support the students.

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+252, -24] Shows how female celebrities, even if not top stars, all end up somehow getting married to wealthy people ㅋㅋ

2. [+133, -6] Female celebrities all have a match

3. [+123, -5] No one would consider getting married to a dentist a good marriage nowadays ㅋㅋ Her partner is probably wealthy, tall, handsome, and a good dentist to boot ㅋㅋ

4. [+16, -6] Lee Yoon Ji would definitely be enough for a dentist and probably more ㅋㅋ She's pretty, great actress, and studies hard ㅋㅋ Why would anyone think she'd get married to some company employee?

5. [+12, -1] Female celebrities seem to have a trend of getting married to businessmen, doctors, and lawyers. I guess that's why everyone's so desperate to become a star.

6. [+11, -1] I can understand why girls want to be celebrities so bad. They all end up getting married to lawyers and doctors ㅎㅎㅎㅎ

7. [+8, -4] Looks like she finally landed the coveted doctor husband

8. [+5, -0] Wow, she's known him for 10 years ㅋ Amazing ㅋㅋ
