1. [+986, -17] Yeah well in that case, AVs are also dramas
2. [+789, -27] Maknae with the naked graduation, Hyomin who'd sell her body for two packs of cigarettes, webcam strip show Jiyeon, plastic surgery monster Boram, fake car accident Soyeon, seduction girl Qri (TN: In 2006, Qri used star in a TV show where she'd be paid to seduce guys for girlfriends that want to check how loyal their boyfriends are).
3. [+731, -10] Pachinko is indeed a widely enjoyed arcade game. There are TV shows and magazines dedicated to it. However, it is gambling. There is money involved and the Japanese themselves call it gambling. There are people in their 20s to their 80s that have lost all of their life savings from Pachinko addictions. There's no problem with T-ara being Pachinko models, it's just hypocritical of them to keep lying like this.
4. [+75, -1] The soju CF offer was obviously a lie ㅋㅋㅋ advertisers already know what T-ara's image is like, what kind of idiotic company would give T-ara that kind of money and beg them to be their model? ㅋㅋㅋ unless of course you want your company to fail.
5. [+57, -1] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Do they think we're idiots
