    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

    I’m calling it: she’s gonna get a new phone.

    For most of this thread since it seems 60% EU/not American...it’s a bit weird she’s buying insurance. Not just that she’s *buying* but that SHE’S buying.
    Quick lesson on how you get insurance..you either:
    1. get insurance through your employer when you work full time at an office job type job (ex. You won’t get it working full time at the mall or in fast food or waitressing) 
    2. Buy it (this is CRAZY expensive and only ever done when you are self-employed and working full time so you are making enough to buy it and make payments on it)
    3. You go on gov assistance. This option is very stigmatized and you have a lot of limitations, so many forego it altogether and rough it without it.
    When you turn 26 you get dropped from your family’s plan. As Kenna is 24, she should be on her family’s plan or on her own through an employer. She’s way too mighty/rich to be on gov assistance. And she says she *bought* her insurance?
    Her parents with their money 100% have insurance and she’s only 24. There’s literally no reason she should be buying health insurance-unless she has been kicked off her parents’ insurance...manually. 
     
    Which would be some serious tea. But still doesn’t add up as with what money/job does she have that would give her it? I don’t think most would use their trust fund for that, but she would have to.
     
    With this tidbit and the sad “no home” post she did on Christmas, and her siblings’ asking her to come celebrate with them yet she didn’t-I think Kenna and her parents have had a serious disagreement and she’s been kicked off the insurance as punishment. Which would normally be a horrific thing to do but I guess they know she has savings from YT and their allowances to her + a trust fund.
     
    Interesting at the least.

    Can’t delete the other stuff but wow after tens of thousands of dollars for Japan + EU trip/stay, budgeting Queen comes home to a “new” (whether o not it’s brand new, this brand is highly coveted among ~quirky girls~ and is pretty expensive) car. I can’t.

    Sorry for weird formatting this won’t go away BUT I’m 80% sure she’s self-publishing (which literally *anyone* can do) through Amazon or something similar.  There’s no deadlines and she can do everything exactly how she wants but it’s the most ghetto way of doing it. I’m surprised because clearly she has the money for a real publisher-I guess her fear of them telling her “no” or critiquing it outweighs the professionalism of getting a real publisher.
    I suppose it’s also possible she got rejected from a few and gave up so she’s going the Amazon route.
     
    Just my speculations.

    Story-time (and hopefully I’m not revealing myself here):
    I work for a company that contacted Sisel and DIA TV for a job. DIA TV is owned by CJ E&M, one of THE largest Korean entertainment companies and was highly regarded until recently as it has been in the news for manipulating votes in their K-pop Idol survival shows. 
    In return for a post on her Instagram, DIA TV wanted 10k USD. For one post. One. I’ve been working in this field for years and I have NEVER heard of such rates, especially for her numbers and interaction levels. My  fellow employees and I laughed out of shock and declined.
    CJ/DIA seems rife with corruption and money, and I guess they found her to be so in line with Korean beauty standards they are willing to stick their necks out for her at any cost-but even that seems so odd. Putting so much effort and money someone who is a nobody outside of the small circle that is K-influencers is very odd.
    Theres something fishy about it. Even if her parents are millionaires, and she’s got the perfect K-Beauty face...I feel like there’s something more sinister at play. This has been a thing we’ve seen with a lot of other white, young, female, influencers in Asia and it was revealed that several of those influencers had ties to some kind of shady work involving sex/things of a sexual nature. Not saying they personally give it out or anything, but they had connections to sex work or things very close to it.
    It makes me wonder what she’s doing, or what she did, to become THAT important to someone at DIA/CJ.
    It’s a bit disturbing.

    Yeah it’s $25-35 for two people is what I meant and that isn’t including drinks or anything, just tickets. $15 a ticket is about the usual unless you go on college days or $5 tuesdays before 5pm. I’m just saying $15 is way too expensive for most Americans to begin with and most people definitely don’t see a movie more than once in theaters unless someone else is paying like parents, friends, bf, etc.
     
     
    Im trying to say it’s an obscene amount of money to pay for a MOVIE, especially when we have Redbox. It’s a very teen/college kid thing to do because they just use their allowance but most american middle class adults do not blow money on movies.

    This. Movie tickets are so expensive (at least in the US) that most people go no more than 3 times a year, if that. We also have something called Redbox which is a kiosk near shopping centers and grocery stores where you can rent out a movie 3 months after its release for $1 so there’s really no reason to go to the movies to see something for $25 unless you have a gift card, a seasonal pass, or have tons of money to blow. Even big time film nerds don’t go and if they do they choose a single film to get excited for and watch. I love movies but I haven’t been in over a year because it’s just too expensive and makes little sense with Redbox and Netflix, etc.
     
    she’s trying to show how rich and quirky she is.

    was going to say this. In some parts of America this is a super country/old time depression era tradition, to give oranges in stockings/as a gift.

    nitpicking but as someone with very thin and very fine hair this kills me. Sissel has FINE hair. Fine is when the strands are skinny-most blondes and Scandinavians have fine hair. Your hair can be thick and fine but seem thin because compared to non-Scandinavians or non-blondes, your hair SEEMS thinner as their strands are thicker. Thin hair means there’s a lot of areas on the scalp without hair.

    1. Yikes
    2. ”sponsored by CJ after many years of partnership” yeah, likely linked up through Kbros. Care to also address them, in their 30’s, asking you (and seemingly paying for it all) a 17 year old girl, to travel with them (and stay in the same houses together???) all over Korea? You were nowhere near as big as you needed to be for CJ to sponsor you at that time.
    Please address THAT.

    I know we’re getting off topic and I’m stupid and forgot how to spoiler BUT in Mimei’s defense: yes, they were Duncan’s family BUT from what I remember they were not on good terms with them (Duncan is all but kicked out of his family, likely for marrying Mimei and his YT persona), were known to be violent, and they were trying to forcefully enter her home. 
     
    If she ever actually said “strangers” she was probably just trying not to make those people madder by exposing their family troubles to the public. If they never see them they are essentially strangers tbh too. So, idk.

    yeah that’s him. I think it’s hilarious she managed to befriend one of the most “sex-loving assholes” in the J-vloging/ig community. Has she seen his photos of his girlfriend? But then again I definitely don’t buy that she’s aromantic/asexual. Maybe not as interested in sex as others but that giggle she does doesn’t lie. She thinks he’s cute. He also has a UK accent and most Americans swoon over it, but Kenna? You know she’s loving it. Watch out, Sophie!
