TV: Missing Nine (Pilot)



Article: 'Missing Nine' shocking pilot broadcast... plane falls holding all the secrets

Source: OSEN via Naver

1. [+3,525, -155] Wow, super fun... finally another drama to watch...

2. [+3,048, -112] I started watching it thinking it's another weird drama but then kept watching and by then an hour had already passed by..

3. [+2,705, -118] It was fun, an hour went by really fast

4. [+2,638, -124] Barely had any expectations going in but it was a movie-like episode... you hardly notice the time going by

5. [+2,241, -104] I think tomorrow's episode will be even more fun!! Can't wait

6. [+714, -26] I saw a lot of references to the Sewol Ferry, particularly with the scene of the water filling in the plane at the end and the yellow messages. The producers have been known for adding in elements like this with their previous works. I'll be watching this for sure.

7. [+631, -16] Why are they all wearing beige toned clothes? They're all wearing beige clothes. Anyway, tomorrow's episode looks like it'll pick up.

8. [+504, -14] The filter on the flashbacks looked like scenes out of a movie

1. [+171, -32] So is this a 'Lost' knock off??

2. [+155, -34] Fun!!! Everyone's good at acting and it totally kept my attention ㅋㅋㅋㅋ but Cao Lu felt random, why was she in there? Her acting was horrible ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+114, -20] Korean dramas are really picking up on the quality ㅋㅋ the pilot episode was so powerful that I'm worried it'll start to get boring from here...

4. [+27, -1] It's not a 'Lost' knock off, more like a 2017 season two version of 'The Secret of Keu Keu Island'... which is great for me because I was sad that they never made a second season for that show

5. [+20, -0] A lot better than I thought. Jung Kyung Ho's quite good at his type of character ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+11, -3] I feel like it'll end up being Korea's version of 'Lost'...

7. [+10, -6] I'd say the plot is similar enough to just call it a 'Lost' remake, no?

Source: Sports Seoul via Nate

1. [+564, -39] Doesn't change the fact that she's Sulli's friend, and you know what they say about birds of a feather

2. [+428, -32] Looks like an Avatar

3. [+389, -26] Sulli's best friend

4. [+37, -4] Sulli's friend, you went overboard with your nose job

5. [+28, -6] Her plastic is slide down

6. [+26, -7] Not an ounce of presence... the Sulli effect ㅎㅎ

7. [+25, -2] Why is her nose so swollen? Just leave your face alone, it's pretty enough as it is

8. [+19, -5] Looks like she got a new nose filter today

9. [+18, -4] Looks like Ronaldinho

10. [+18, -9] Why did you throw away your old face. I thought you were so cute and fresh but too much has changed little by little ㅜㅜ I'll still support you though

11. [+15, -3] Both her and Sulli are such attention wh*res

12. [+10, -2] What's up with her nose bridge? She looks like an Avatar ㅋ

[Pann] Are girl groups with only one popular member at greater risk for disbandment?





Pann: The reason girl groups can't have only one member that's popular

Mentions 4minute, miss A, AOA, and EXID as examples of girl groups with only one popular member that eventually ended in disbandment or member issues (although EXID looks strong internally).

1. [+437, -12] I'd put DIA on the list over EXID... the more they promote, the more Jung Chaeyeon gets popular and their agency is totally banking all their support on only Jung Chaeyeon ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+391, -6] I think EXID's case is different... they didn't blow up in their first 1-2 years, they were doing so bad at first that they practically disbanded which is probably why the members seem so much closer/stronger.

3. [+328, -12] I wouldn't add EXID to the list. Solji is just as big as Hani on TV now and LE's been pretty famous for her rapping. Hyelin took a few gigs in Solji's place over the year-end celebrations. Sure Hyelin and Junghwa are behind in popularity but each of their song releases have either done average or pretty well so I don't see them disbanding. I sometimes wonder if AOA could disband and considering the fact that no one thought 4minute would but they actually did, the possibility seems open for AOA as well.

4. [+117, -3] You also have Gugudan with Sejung at the top

5. [+114, -1] Add Cosmic Girls and Sungso... their agency doesn't care at all about the other members

6. [+98, -2] Nine Muses too, I don't know any of them other than Kyungri. They went through so many member changes and I'm sure three members recently left as well.

7. [+81, -1] Well ZE:A's not a girl group but Siwan, Hyungshik, Kwanghee, and Dongjun are the only ones known out of that group

8. [+71, -0] AOA's agency does really seem to try hard to support the other members though with Jimin's single, Mina's drama work, and that AOA Cream unit

9. [+61, -0] miss A definitely earns a spot on the list... which is funny because their debut track was such a hit that I was sure everyone would hit daebak but they ended up with Suzy as the only member coming out alive...

10. [+56, -0] Eh? I'd say Solji's pretty popular in EXID too. She's been on a lot of singing shows. EXID is mostly Hani and Solji.

11. [+40, -1] I don't think all of this matters, groups that are meant to disband will disband no matter if the members are close or popular or not;;; BEG and Soshi are unique cases in that they're lasting super long. Most groups seem to disband after contracts go up for renewal and that's probably the norm. The media just makes a big deal out of it calling it the 7 year curse ㅋㅋㅋ how many of you all would like to not be able to date or do anything for 7 years? Not sleep, not eat what you want, basically not live your own life... and then you have to renew your contract and live that life all over again? Definitely wouldn't be easy to say yes...

12. [+37, -0] Take EXID off the list and put Gugudan and DIA up there

13. [+33, -1] I honestly think Park Jin Young messed up on who he chose for the miss A members. He did well by choosing Suzy but JYP used to have a ton of other great trainees like Hyorin, Hani, Song Jieun, Jaekyung, Yooji, Bomi, Naeun, etc...

14. [+31, -3] Posts like this make me appreciate how SM supports their groups. They usually don't promote just one member but all of them.

15. [+30, -0] Well DIA's album cover is straight up Jung Chaeyeon and the rest

1. [+420, -8] Ear candy, eye candy... their vocal talent is no joke

2. [+316, -5] The song's really good, the LuHaSol is a good mix of members

3. [+311, -6] I like the song! Please perform it on music shows too ㅠㅠ

4. [+278, -4] All three killed it with their vocals

5. [+249, -6] Honey honey! I love combos like this~ the chemistry between the three is perfect ㅋㅋ

6. [+93, -3] I want to see them on stage~~~~~ make it happen, PDs~

9. [+79, -3] Kyah, the song is good ㅜㅜㅜㅜㅜ

10. [+67, -0] The song's good. There's a good mix of high, mid, and low tone vocals so the three is a good combo and overall great collab

Displeased IOI fans remake 'Sonagi' teaser image


fanmade

Article: IOI fans angry at how agency's handling of work

Source: Joongang Ilbo via Nate

IOI fans complaining that the aurora used in the background of IOI's 'Sonagi' teaser image is a random picture off of the internet and is blaming their agency for not taking the time to actually do their jobs.

1. [+467, -31] Last broadcast, last variety, last album, last group appearance, last single, last concert, so sick of hearing about their last everything

2. [+366, -28] Well they will no longer be getting any income from IOI and this is technically their last song that they can make money off of so there's no reason for them to invest heavily in the production of it. Who even listens to a song based off of the album cover or the teaser image?

3. [+63, -6] I think I've heard that this would be their last something over 10 times already

4. [+37, -20] Such whiners. All this talk about their last this and that, so when is it actually going to be their last? Just hurry and disband already

5. [+34, -13] They keep calling it their last whatever but keep coming out, f*ck ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+26, -4] So tired of this "last" marketing........

7. [+17, -9] Can they please stop talking about how it's their last whatever.... when is will it actually be their last

8. [+12, -6] Tired of them now, just disband already

9. [+11, -2] Pretty damn pathetic that their fans are getting angry over something like this ㅋㅋㅋ can you all please go get angry over a worthy cause?

10. [+11, -1] Their agency downloaded a free Naver font and used a free background image. An angry fan improved it by turning it into that gif you see below the pink picture. After all, the point of IOI is that the nation is their producer... if the agency can't do their job, might as well let their fans do it for them.

11. [+9, -2] I can see why big agencies don't want to get involved with this show with all this fuss about the group

12. [+8, -1] Yeah, apparently that image comes up if you search 'free images'.......
