SM found to be funneling 10 billion won a year to Lee Soo Man's personal agency


Article: [Exclusive] SM Entertainment has been leaking 10 billion won a year to Lee Soo Man's personal agency

1. [+503, -5] Let's get a thorough investigation of both SM and Lee Soo Man ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+430, -7] Something smells fishy...

3. [+345, -21] Please investigate this thoroughly. Punish for any crimes committed and praise for any goods that have been done.

4. [+29, -30] Wow ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ didn't think this would be used against him like this ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ  I mean yeah that personal agency does belong to Lee Soo Man but it's an agency that does the producing, mixing, and mastering for all of SM's songs. How can they be criticized for taking money for that? ㅋㅋㅋ
- Then what's the reason for SM having a separate agency just for producing, mixing, and master? They can just keep it under SM, can't they?

5. [+21, -1] Well... I guess they're due for an investigation. SM and CJ are dominating the market pretty much.

6. [+19, -0] Embezzlement!

7. [+19, -0] It's not just SM, most sizable companies dump all the work on a CEO's company so that he can pocket the profits. It just sucks for the staff when times get tough for the company since they're the ones who are cut first.

8. [+13, -0] Isn't this embezzlement? Why is the money being funneled there?

9. [+7, -1] It's insider trading

10. [+6, -1] Maybe Bae Yong Joon's smart... he knew this would happen so he brushed his hands clean and left ㅋㅋ

1. [+391, -12] Companies like this need to be dealt with... there are sever issues at play here...

2. [+301, -8] Well I hope he doesn't deal with this by going off to America to play golf and coming back once things quiet down

3. [+274, -8] How can people say this isn't illegal? Then Samsung, LG, Hyundai, and Lotte would all be doing it too!

4. [+247, -8] F*ck, I knew this would explode one day...

5. [+157, -4] Remember when Interpol was out for Lee Soo Man because he ran away overseas? Old habits die hard

6. [+111, -3] Your stocks are dropping, Soo Min-ah

7. [+83, -1] Basically embezzlement

AOA to make a comeback by the end of May


Article: [Exclusive] AOA gears up for late May comeback... 6 members without Choa

Source: Ilgan Sports via Nate

1. [+242, -6] For idols to hit daebak... you don't need to be good singers, you just need a good song.. There are a ton of nugu groups with amazing singers ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+183, -7] They still have sub singers so I think they'll be fine as long as they don't get a song with too many high notes... Most important thing is that the song is good

3. [+164, -20] If you search AOA ㅋㅋ Seolhyun comes up as a vocal ㅋㅋㅋㅋ why would they do that after Choa leaving? I guess even visuals are vocals nowadays ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+11, -1] Choa has always stolen the show for her power vocals but Yuna's good and even Hyejung has improved since 'Excuse Me'... as for the rest, well ㅋㅋ

5. [+10, -4] I think it'll flop ㅋㅋ Choa covered most of AOA's songs. I don't like how the other members are so nasally.

6. [+4, -1] I think groups need at least 3-4 popular members to survive... groups like AOA where all the popularity is centered on one member like Seolhyun makes it difficult for the rest of the group to run events and performances with her missing all the time..

7. [+3, -1] Well Twice doesn't have a main vocal either but people are reacting so differently to Twice and AOA

8. [+2, -1] KARA never had singing skills either but they did everything ^^

Chungha reveals she deleted her SNS to focus on her work


Article: Chungha, "I deleted my SNS account to focus on my work"

Source: X Sports News via Nate

1. [+286, -12] That's good. There are so many instances of idols who are doing well just up and ruin it by something they said on SNS... for example, Sulli.

2. [+202, -5] Such a realistic decision

3. [+144, -4] The reason Chungha is doing so well

4. [+12, -1] There's something about her that I like. She had the least antis during IOI too...

5. [+12, -1] That's a good decision

6. [+11, -1] She's honestly more talented than Sunmi out of all the female solos. Sunmi's the type that shines because the people around her polish her up. Chungha has a set of skills and talents that she uses to make herself shine. The only thing Sunmi's better than her in is that maybe that she's taller and has long legs? Other than that...;;;

7. [+11, -1] SNS truly is a waste of time, good job Chungha

8. [+10, -1] Chungha seems like the type who knows how to have deep thoughts... she's very sincere in what she does

9. [+8, -3] Chungha's tone and everything reminds me of Taeyeon. Is it just me? ㅋ When I first heard her song at the gym, I thought Taeyeon had a new song out ㅋ

10. [+5, -1] Her song's good ㅎㅎ she'll be fine as long as she builds her career up like this, fighting

Yong Junhyung gets asked about Goo Hara on 'Radio Star'


Article: Yong Junhyung taken aback at question about Goo Hara... "I don't want to leave things up in the air"

Source: Sports Today via Nate

When asked if his songs are about Goo Hara, he replied, "It's not what you think. Most of my songs are written at the start of my most powerful memories. I'll mix in dramas or other romantic stories since it's sometimes not enough." When asked if he's interested in dating lately, "I don't have much time left. I have to enlist soon and I don't want to leave things up in the air between then. I think I'm at a time where I need to focus more on my work."

1. [+385, -8] It's been so long since they broke up, leave him alone

2. [+271, -7] This is why celebrities don't want to go public. It gets used against them over and over.

3. [+216, -30] I always thought he could do better in every way

4. [+35, -1] Wow, is this really the best 'Radio Star' could come up with? Goo Hara isn't relevant at all today.

5. [+35, -1] Junhyung has achieved so much in his time and yet they ask him such low grade questions

6. [+32, -1] Why not just ask him if he's dating anyone new... why go back to something that's been talked about to death... It's been years...

7. [+23, -3] I always assumed he was just another tryhard idol more preoccupied with making himself look cool but he seems like a really good person after today's episode

8. [+20, -1] Old news;;; I also think it's rude to even be talking about her when she's not there

9. [+18, -2] What's the point in bringing up something that happened over 5 years ago?

10. [+13, -2] Why would Kim Guk Jin think that's an appropriate question? How would he feel if he was grilled questions about his ex-wife?

JellyFish CEO purchases a 14 billion won building



Article: [Exclusive] JellyFish CEO Hwang Se Joon purchases Shinsadong building worth 14 billion won

Source: Star Today via Nate

1. [+375, -9] Can't believe a building that looks like that is worth over 10 billion won...

2. [+258, -5] It's what Yang Hyun Suk and Park Jin Young has always done. They'll purchase it and then use company funds to pay themselves rent ㅋㅋ

3. [+167, -4] So the CEO personally bought it? Not the agency? I guess company money is going to be used to pay rent for it straight into the CEO's bank account

4. [+15, -1] Please pay more attention to VIXX...

5. [+14, -1] Most of their moneymakers like Park Hyo Shin and Sung Shi Kyung left but I guess they still make enough to buy buildings like this... Should've supported artists like them when they had the chance.

6. [+7, -1] That's really worth 10 billion won...??

7. [+7, -0] That telephone pole looks gross

8. [+6, -0] Pay more attention to your artists in the time you have to buy buildings

9. [+5, -0] Celebrities are buying up all the buildings

10. [+3, -0] This building is right near my company and it's in a super shoddy location ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
