    I haven't caught up with the thread so apologies if this was said already, but you know the rumor is fake for the very simple reason that there would never be any articles on Naver about such a rumor. YG controls Naver almost entirely and has control over what's released on there.
     
    Edit for a semi-unsurprising tinfoil hat moment: Jennie's family bought her way into YG. I wouldn't say they went as far as grooming or anything, but it's very VERY obvious she did not get in with her talent or looks. YG's stakeholders are mostly YG artists and their families, there's no reason as to why the Blackpink members would be any different.

    I did some digging: Eunseo's mother is Russian, her dad is Korean. I THINK she has a baby brother who looks much more Korean but I'll refrain myself from posting the picture because this kid isn't problematic and I'm not even sure whether he's her brother. She is just another middle schooler in Korean. She gets questions about her hair/eye color and ethnicity quite a bit on her IG, so it's not that surprising that she put it in her bio imo. I think she just tried to prevent more comments about her ethnicity. 
    One very convincing factor for me is that she doesn't use any mixed people related tags.If she really wanted to brag about her being mixed she could easily use the bait tags.

    The thing is that it's easy for foreign fans to say that the "entertainment industry should change" and I totally agree, but what's overlooked is that this isn't just the Korean entertainment industry. The whole of Korea has a problem with mental illnesses and the treatment they require. I have a few Korean friends and every time they say the same thing, "Why would people care about rich idol x when they're depressed themselves for legit reasons like poverty" (NOT my words, I'm not debating which issues are valid and which are not) and it makes a lot of sense. Sulli isn't just "another idol who killed herself", she is "another Korean person who couldn't handle the pressure of the industry they're in." 
    My point is that I don't see any change happening at all. The only thing that could possibly be revised are the laws concerning online anonymity

    That video exposes them so much holy shit. They look like 4 high schoolers who just had a fight and now need to do a shitty presentation together. And could Jennie not smile genuinely just once???? She's such an ugly person and it's showing tbh

    You see, Kenna, the word "tier" is used to compare because that's literally the fucking meaning of the word. You did compare Rome to London and you did it quite literally.

    She was born in January 1990, which makes her an "early 90-liner", meaning that she went to school with the people born in '89, which is why it may sound like she graduated early. Suppose someone sees that she is 32 in an article written in English, they might misinterpret that and report that as "33 Korean age, 32 Western age" or "34 Korean age, 32 Western age" or the opposite: "32 Korean age, 31/30 Western age" so no wonder there's confusion lol.

    He's probably hoping to get noticed by some crazy fangirls who try to figure out future band members 5 years in advance. This might just be an act to get noticed rather than a real sign of him getting signed anywhere lmao.

    Why'd she play herself like this and send her still-fans to this forum lmao? An influencer I used to follow did this exact same thing of calling PULL out by calling it a hate forum. It got me curious and a week later I had to unfollow that person. Good job Kenna, you're not gonna attract followers by bringing up PULL but you sure will lose some.

    She turned into everything she used to speak out against  What a downgrade.

    I'm so confused. I also remember her from her tumblr days and even though I found her insufferable even back then, it at least made sense considering her age? Is this really the skinny girl who hated people commenting on her frame and who was a fake SJW and who hated being fetishized? But that is exactly what she's doing and pandering to now? 
    I thought she'd grow out of her edgy tumblr girl phase eventually, but she changed for the worse holy

    There's no way that wouldn't make the news, so I took some time going through most Korean news sites. Not one single mention of a Hong Kong tourist dying, let alone one dying in McDonalds. The only topics I found were things related to working holidays of Korean/Hong Kong employees,  and some food-related deathly accidents dating back to 2017 and 2005.

    Nah it makes perfect sense that they don't divorce privately and quietly. Ahn Jae Hyun made a whole ass career off his "good husband" image, so he deserves to be dragged. Gu Hye Sun on the other hand has no company to back her up anymore and considering how "divorcing quietly" affected Song Hye Kyo, she's right to make it all public, whether you agree with her or not. 
    She's always known to be a bit of a crazy and I guess rumors were right after all. I'm still enjoying it though because there's a lot more dirt on AJH (Edit: yea there are articles AJH and JJY were not friends after all (which is an obvious lie) but it's not what I'm referring to here) and it's about time his antics get exposed too but boy is this a hot mess.

    He's still a friend of Jung Joon Young so I don't care how many receipts come out in his favor, he's still a douchebag who deserves nothing.
