[Pann] Are girl groups with only one popular member at greater risk for disbandment?

Pann: The reason girl groups can't have only one member that's popular

Mentions 4minute, miss A, AOA, and EXID as examples of girl groups with only one popular member that eventually ended in disbandment or member issues (although EXID looks strong internally).

1. [+437, -12] I'd put DIA on the list over EXID... the more they promote, the more Jung Chaeyeon gets popular and their agency is totally banking all their support on only Jung Chaeyeon ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+391, -6] I think EXID's case is different... they didn't blow up in their first 1-2 years, they were doing so bad at first that they practically disbanded which is probably why the members seem so much closer/stronger.

3. [+328, -12] I wouldn't add EXID to the list. Solji is just as big as Hani on TV now and LE's been pretty famous for her rapping. Hyelin took a few gigs in Solji's place over the year-end celebrations. Sure Hyelin and Junghwa are behind in popularity but each of their song releases have either done average or pretty well so I don't see them disbanding. I sometimes wonder if AOA could disband and considering the fact that no one thought 4minute would but they actually did, the possibility seems open for AOA as well.

4. [+117, -3] You also have Gugudan with Sejung at the top

5. [+114, -1] Add Cosmic Girls and Sungso... their agency doesn't care at all about the other members

6. [+98, -2] Nine Muses too, I don't know any of them other than Kyungri. They went through so many member changes and I'm sure three members recently left as well.

7. [+81, -1] Well ZE:A's not a girl group but Siwan, Hyungshik, Kwanghee, and Dongjun are the only ones known out of that group

8. [+71, -0] AOA's agency does really seem to try hard to support the other members though with Jimin's single, Mina's drama work, and that AOA Cream unit

9. [+61, -0] miss A definitely earns a spot on the list... which is funny because their debut track was such a hit that I was sure everyone would hit daebak but they ended up with Suzy as the only member coming out alive...

10. [+56, -0] Eh? I'd say Solji's pretty popular in EXID too. She's been on a lot of singing shows. EXID is mostly Hani and Solji.

11. [+40, -1] I don't think all of this matters, groups that are meant to disband will disband no matter if the members are close or popular or not;;; BEG and Soshi are unique cases in that they're lasting super long. Most groups seem to disband after contracts go up for renewal and that's probably the norm. The media just makes a big deal out of it calling it the 7 year curse ㅋㅋㅋ how many of you all would like to not be able to date or do anything for 7 years? Not sleep, not eat what you want, basically not live your own life... and then you have to renew your contract and live that life all over again? Definitely wouldn't be easy to say yes...

12. [+37, -0] Take EXID off the list and put Gugudan and DIA up there

13. [+33, -1] I honestly think Park Jin Young messed up on who he chose for the miss A members. He did well by choosing Suzy but JYP used to have a ton of other great trainees like Hyorin, Hani, Song Jieun, Jaekyung, Yooji, Bomi, Naeun, etc...

14. [+31, -3] Posts like this make me appreciate how SM supports their groups. They usually don't promote just one member but all of them.

15. [+30, -0] Well DIA's album cover is straight up Jung Chaeyeon and the rest

2. [+316, -5] The song's really good, the LuHaSol is a good mix of members

3. [+311, -6] I like the song! Please perform it on music shows too ㅠㅠ

4. [+278, -4] All three killed it with their vocals

5. [+249, -6] Honey honey! I love combos like this~ the chemistry between the three is perfect ㅋㅋ

6. [+93, -3] I want to see them on stage~~~~~ make it happen, PDs~

7. [+86, -3] Great chemistry, let's keep this trio forever

8. [+112, -15] Wow, Solar's first line was amazing

9. [+79, -3] Kyah, the song is good ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ

10. [+67, -0] The song's good. There's a good mix of high, mid, and low tone vocals so the three is a good combo and overall great collab


Displeased IOI fans remake 'Sonagi' teaser image


Article: IOI fans angry at how agency's handling of work

Source: Joongang Ilbo via Nate

IOI fans complaining that the aurora used in the background of IOI's 'Sonagi' teaser image is a random picture off of the internet and is blaming their agency for not taking the time to actually do their jobs.

1. [+467, -31] Last broadcast, last variety, last album, last group appearance, last single, last concert, so sick of hearing about their last everything

2. [+366, -28] Well they will no longer be getting any income from IOI and this is technically their last song that they can make money off of so there's no reason for them to invest heavily in the production of it. Who even listens to a song based off of the album cover or the teaser image?

3. [+63, -6] I think I've heard that this would be their last something over 10 times already

4. [+37, -20] Such whiners. All this talk about their last this and that, so when is it actually going to be their last? Just hurry and disband already

5. [+34, -13] They keep calling it their last whatever but keep coming out, f*ck ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+26, -4] So tired of this "last" marketing........

7. [+17, -9] Can they please stop talking about how it's their last whatever.... when is will it actually be their last

8. [+12, -6] Tired of them now, just disband already

9. [+11, -2] Pretty damn pathetic that their fans are getting angry over something like this ㅋㅋㅋ can you all please go get angry over a worthy cause?

10. [+11, -1] Their agency downloaded a free Naver font and used a free background image. An angry fan improved it by turning it into that gif you see below the pink picture. After all, the point of IOI is that the nation is their producer... if the agency can't do their job, might as well let their fans do it for them.

11. [+9, -2] I can see why big agencies don't want to get involved with this show with all this fuss about the group

12. [+8, -1] Yeah, apparently that image comes up if you search 'free images'.......


Hyosung gifts her mother a 'money cake'

Article: Idol becomes 'filial-dol' for gifting her mother with a money cake

Source: Joongang Ilbo via Nate

1. [+1,023, -29] If only I could do something like this for my mother... but instead it's so hard for me to even feed and house myself that I'm still receiving help from them day to day. Finding employment is hard, I'm only getting older, it seems my friends are finding their own paths... life's heavy.

2. [+979, -15] I wish I was wealthy enough to not only give my parents a money cake but only walk a path of money

3. [+821, -17] My heart wants to give my parents double that... so it upsets me to see myself knowing that I can't

4. [+36, -1] F*ck, I must be a rotten son then

5. [+32, -1] I have to work super hard, I want to do this for my parents too

6. [+31, -7] Is she bragging about her money?

7. [+24, -0] Sigh... when will I get to give back to my parents... So much debt to pay off, it's getting exhausting. Employment is getting even harder... I just want to give it all up and leave... so jealous of her~~

8. [+18, -0] I agree with the best replies... I saw this picture and thought the same.. ㅜ that I want to do this for my parents too... we all have the same heart.

9. [+16, -1] Hmm, this is not a bad idea. I was wondering what to give for my parent's 60th birthday.

10. [+15, -0] Remember what Kim Jong Guk said... that parents can't wait for you to be ready to be filial... instead of thinking "I'll be filial after I make money", just give them a call today or go grab dinner with them over a bowl of jajangmyun. That's what it really means to be filial.

11. [+14, -0] There's a total of 1.25 million won in bills in that picture (two 50k bills, one 10k bill, two 50k bills in the picture, eight 10k bills and 21 50k bills around the outside, and two 10k bills and two 50k bills on top).

12. [+12, -2] Something about the picture makes me feel like a lesser person by comparison and awfully sorry to my parents;;;;;;;;;


Kim Hyun Joong's ex-girlfriend found to have fabricated evidence

Article: [Exclusive] Kim Hyun Joong's ex-girlfriend A caught by prosecutors for fabricating evidence

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+2,441, -80] Wow... what a b*tch... the biggest kkot-baem of history

2. [+2,006, -80] I knew this would happen, tsk

3. [+1,951, -73] Well that's it for the woman's life now...

4. [+209, -5] Look at how they don't mosaic Kim Hyun Joong's face but only the woman's ㅋ why should kkot-baems deserve basic rights?

5. [+172, -3] So she tried to get more money out of him by saying she was pregnant when she wasn't... She should give back everything she's received so far and go to jail

6. [+165, -1] She should've stopped when he gave her 600 million won and called it a day ㅋㅋ it's obvious that Hyun Joong was willing to give her money for the sake of their time together but her demanding 1.6 billion won is unfathomable. She's an idiot... you have to be smart to be a thief, shouldn't try it at all if you don't have the brains for it.

7. [+161, -58] Kim Hyun Joong should take the kid away from her. All those people who hated on him saying he was a butthole attacker and all are probably feeling bad. I think it's alright for him to comeback. Yeah he didn't manage his private life but his image was completely ruined for no reason and it isn't fair.

8. [+150, -9] So Kim Hyun Joong has just been sitting there taking all of the lies she put out there about him? I'd die from how unfair that is

9. [+140, -4] Release her face so that she can't ever get married to another man again

10. [+109, -24] So all those texts about attacking her butthole and calling her a pregnancy machine were fabricated...??

11. [+106, -1] Not that Kim Hyun Joong did anything good himself but he was totally bitten by a rabid dog it seems;;;

12. [+105, -3] What a crazy b*tch ㅡㅡ She got money out of him by claiming to be beat, then claimed to be pregnant when she never was, then tried to get more money out of him by having his baby and getting married to him but he didn't want to so she hits him with a 1.6 billion won lawsuit ㅋㅋ then fabricates Kakaotalk messages ㅡㅡ that poor, poor baby ㅡㅡ Now that she has nothing left to rip off of Kim Hyun Joong, she'll probably give the kid back to him ㅋ

13. [+100, -7] So Hyun Joong was the victim... how is he going to be compensated for his ruined image... his image is literally in tatters to the point where his career is over..

14. [+87, -7] Kim Hyun Joong's career was demolished at the peak of his years... who's going to compensate him for that?

15. [+84, -2] Wow ㅋㅋㅋ so she was never even pregnant ㅋㅋㅋ this is a drama ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+2,774, -29] Why mosaic the woman's face????? I'm pretty sure she used to work in the celebrity industry as well too

2. [+2,247, -35] She was on TV before, why mosaic only her?

3. [+1,739, -31] B*tches like her are always looking to rip off celebrities and use them for money. The media is as much to blame for being played by her.

4. [+1,368, -26] The truth will always be revealed

5. [+424, -13] Kim Hyun Joong really went through a lot... this is so scary. Her identity should be revealed so that there aren't more victims in the future.

6. [+376, -12] Release her face and set her as an example... does she get to be mosaic'd out because she's a woman?

7. [+364, -11] The biggest kkot-baem of history

8. [+349, -10] Her greed got the better of her... should've called it quits after she got the 600 million won. Now she's going to lose parental rights as well probably.
