Yoon Shi Yoon struggles to understand a man's love and relationship with a doll


Article: 'Big Question' A Japanese man's ideal type is a doll? Yoon Shi Yoon struggles to manage his reaction

Source: TV Report via Nate

TV show is about discovering the different types of relationships around the world and featured a Japanese man who claimed his doll was his girlfriend. Yoon Shi Yoon: "Honestly, it felt eerie. But I obviously couldn't let that show. I'm not sure if the camera picked up on it but the doll wasn't just a cute doll but one that looked like an actual human so it was quite scary. It was difficult for me to manage my reaction at first."

1. [+413, -21] After seeing that ajusshi... I actually feel bad for that doll

2. [+390, -21] I bet we'll see men like this in our own country in a few years. Quite terrifying ㅜ

3. [+352, -12] "Doll" ㅋㅋ let's be real, that's a sex doll

4. [+65, -6] But it's not like that man's committing a crime... he loves his doll and it makes him happy, there's no reason to put him down for that ㅠㅠ I think it's a lot better than men who buy mail-order brides or purchase prostitutes...

5. [+51, -2] Our country has a hobby culture of BJD collectors who consider the dolls as their own children and call buying them 'adopting'. I once saw them hold a meet up at a park and I was scared.

6. [+37, -2] I live in Tokyo and I've never seen anyone carrying one of these dolls around... so obviously they know that this is embarrassing since they aren't seen in public with them, right? One time I saw some loser guy on a date with a girl dressed like a doll and I asked my Japanese friend and they were like, "He's paying her to go on a date with him."

7. [+36, -1] Better than soliciting prostitution

8. [+29, -2] None of our business if it doesn't affect anyone else

9. [+21, -4] Don't be scared, guys ㅋ this is going to be Korea in a few years too ㅋ

10. [+20, -0] The man was apart from his family for so long that his loneliness manifested into giving affection to inanimate objects. Remember in 'Castaway' with the volleyball Wilson? Same thing. I don't find this funny at all, I just feel bad for him. You have to wonder how crippling loneliness can be.

11. [+16, -0] I'd get goosebumps being in a dark room at night with a doll like that

12. [+16, -0] Didn't we have someone in our own country who tried to marry a pillow...

Han Seohee claims maybe she won't debut if she doesn't feel like it


Article: Controversial Han Seohee, "I'm going to live doing what I want, I won't debut if I don't feel like it"

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+1,930, -36] Every time I see her, I try to imagine how rich she is... because she lives life in such a "f*ck it, I don't care" type of way

2. [+1,617, -82] Won't debut? You mean can't debut ^^

3. [+1,612, -35] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Imagine life being so easy that being a celebrity is something you can do if you feel like it...

4. [+101, -7] She won't care what any of you say, she's the daughter of a wealthy family ㅎㅎ

5. [+72,- 4] ㅋㅋㅋ She's mentally weaker than I thought. You need a stronger head than that if you want to last in the industry.

6. [+70, -7] We all know you don't have fans, stop acting like you do

7. [+52, -1] Why do you get to do what you want but you have issues with people who comment on your posts when they're doing what they want to too

8. [+32, -3] She seems to live life however she wants because her body has already been dirtied once ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+22, -2] I actually think it'd be hilarious if she actually debuted ㅋㅋㅋ she'll get into fights with staff who don't do things her way, maybe even fights with other celebrities ㅋㅋㅋ it's going to be fun

10. [+19, -2] If she never ends up a celebrity, I think she'd have a big career waiting for her as an internet streamer

11. [+19, -1] So does her family not care about her anymore? Obviously her parents and relatives know that she's acting like this, right?...

12. [+19, -0] Look at her trying to act all cool now that she realizes a debut is out of the question for her ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[Pann] Joo Haknyeon makes an inconsiderate statement about the earthquake?


Pann: Really disappointed in Joo Haknyeon

Joo Haknyeon: It's really cold lately! That's why there was an earthquake, because the ground was shaking from the cold~

1. [+335, -29] Seems he wanted to say something cute for his fans but this is wrong ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+277, -35] I don't know, I just think he should probably be more careful with what he says next time so he doesn't cause controversy

3. [+146, -2] Obviously he didn't mean it in any negative way. It was just a thoughtless statement. The earthquake was severe enough for even the college entrance exam to be postponed for the first time, it's not anything to be joking about like this.

4. [+111, -4] Pohang is a wreck right now and he's making a joke out of it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ he should be grateful he's a nugu. Who would ever think of telling jokes about a natural disaster?


5. [+107, -14] Shouldn't he apologize for this?

6. [+99, -7] He's not a bad person, just should've thought more before saying that

7. [+91, -0] This is why fans are so important. Anyone can tell that he messed up on this one but his fans are like, "But our Haknyun~~~~~~~!!" What, did you expect people to be like, "Oh, yes, we're so understanding~"

8. [+87, -2] He needs to go with a quiet, mysterious concept for himself. He won 'Produce 101' just off of his face alone but every time he opens his mouth, his image just crashes and burns.

9. [+72, -8] He's always said some thoughtless things on 'Produce 101' so a lot of the more sane fans left. The only fans he has left are akgaes who are still to this day insisting that his image on the show was malicious editing. His fans probably don't even know what's wrong with this statement.

10. [+49, -10] I understand why his statement would be seen as problematic but he obviously just said it to be cute to his fans. It feels wrong to accuse him of being dumb and stupid over it.

"There are injured people, people who've lost their homes, even the college entrance exam has been postponed... feels inappropriate for him to be saying this at a time like this."

"He's making too light of the situation when the entire nation is suffering from the effects of it. Even if he just wanted to make his fans laugh... There are people in Pohang who haven't been able to return home yet. He should apologize considering the situation."

"I know he didn't mean it negatively but he shouldn't think of the earthquake as something so light ㅠㅠ ..."

"Even if he didn't have ill intent, he should've thought about it one more time before saying it..."

"I'd understand if a child said this but how old is this guy~?"

"An inappropriate statement. He should be thinking of the victims right now."

"He's probably not thinking much of it because he didn't feel the earthquake himself... If he knew Pohang's situation right now, he would never be able to say something like this."

Hollywood: Gigi Hadid and Katy Perry




Article: "Katy Perry, Gigi Hadid NO" Fashion show in China faces a mess

Source: TV Report via Naver

1. [+2,755, -9] This is great news. Gigi Hadid's little brother was even in Korea for treatment and putting up all sorts of racist remarks on his Instagram.

2. [+2,281, -12] It's good that they banned Gigi Hadid

3. [+1,589, -13] Gigi Hadid has had a lot of problems with racism against Asians so I'm not even surprised...

4. [+1,156, -53] I remember Perry nuna didn't discriminate against anyone at all and had fun and smiled the entire time performing with Psy. So what if she has sunflowers there? ㅋㅋ No one else in the world but China knows that the sunflower represents anti-China.

5. [+197, -0] Gigi Hadid is so stupid, she's Arab too so she's basically Asian and yet she put herself down ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ good job with the boycott!

6. [+204, -3] What Gigi Hadid did makes me want to slap her

7. [+169, -4] Katy's sunflower dress was just a tour outfit ㅠㅠㅠ she even wore it in other countries ㅠㅠㅠ should've given her notice at rehearsal or something to not wear it..

8. [+153, -1] China did a great job with banning Gigi ㅋㅋㅋ racist b*tch needs to screw off

1. [+247, -7] Don't care for Katy Perry but China's decision on Gigi Hadid was great. Dumb people like her need to face the consequences for them to realize what they did wrong. Other Asian countries should follow suit, especially Korea.

2. [+237, -9] Amazed at the justice being served over the reason for Gigi Hadid's rejection

3. [+158, -3] Awesome what they did with Gigi Hadid

4. [+22, -2] Good job, China. So much better than Korea who will say "welcome welcome" no matter how much we're taken as fools ㅡㅡ let's please take after China on stuff like this and on how hard they go with punishment laws

5. [+18, -0] Korea needs to learn from this. We're always so welcoming of anyone famous from overseas.

6. [+10, -0] Love how China gives no f*cks when anyone pisses them off ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+10, -0] She deserves to be rejected. Now that's what I call a blacklist.

8. [+6, -0] Good riddance, Gigi Hadid ㅋㅋㅋ

Fans anticipate BTS' debut on major American channels



Article: BTS to make appearances on 3 American broadcast channels 'who wants BTS?'

Source: Korea Ilbo via Naver

1. [+3,427, -32] They will see for themselves what true music is, what true performance is, what type of energy BTS is able to exude... because they will transcend race and the color of their skin.

2. [+3,063, -23] The main viewers of 'The Ellen Show' are women, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' men, and 'The Late Night Show' young adults in their 20s and 30s. They are all consumers of American pop culture. This just proves that BTS' popularity is no longer limited to a certain age group or race.

3. [+2,799, -30] Do well, BTS. A different world awaits you come Monday.

4. [+2,300, -20] So amazing and so proud of them, do well boys!

5. [+485, -3] It's obvious that foreigners see something in BTS without BTS having to go out of their way to do promotions for them or even specifically have foreign members. They never planned an American advancement so it just shows that they were just meant for the world stage all along... do well!

6. [+471, -3] What's scary is that this is just the beginning

7. [+435, -2] The entire world wants to see BTS. It's only Korea that treats them less than they're worth. Korea will regret this later on so please treat them properly while you still can.

8. [+303, -0] So glad about the positive reactions yesterday. BTS is able to swallow up the American stages and are doing just fine. I heard fans were waiting in line overnight for the show today... do well, boys.

9. [+288, -0] I can feel their growth down in my bones and I'm actually scared at how much more they have waiting in front of them. Keep working hard, keep communicating with your fans! We'll be supporting you to be bigger artists!

10. [+156, -0] Apparently 'The Ellen Show' is trying to add additional seating~ have fun foreign Armies~ ㅎㅎ
