What is going on with Sooyoung and Won Bin?

What happened was that on Christmas, Dispatch announced on their Twitter that they will be releasing a 'mega' scandal on January 1st. "Dispatch juniors, we have finally begun the countdown. Let's begin the New Year with a delicious dish of bean sprout soup! D-6, anticipation!" 

Excited netizens began making up all sorts of pairings as to who the scandal could be about, leading Dispatch to respond, "Too much imagination is bad for your health. There's a lot of variety in the responses to Dispatch's January 1st release. What I'm worried about is there being an unfortunate sacrifice becoming embroiled in the mess..."

Soon after, people started naming Sooyoung because of SNSD's comeback, making her the 'unfortunate sacrifice'

Dispatch then tweeted, "What in the world is going on? Why Won Bin? Why Sooyoung? Rumors are just rumors. Confirm the facts with our release." 

Unfortunately, the rumor had already spread to the point where it took over search rankings before finally hitting the media.

There were some that tried to trace the rumor back and eventually found that it originated from the MBC drama gallery on DC Gallery (another popular netizen community), which is basically a forum full of 20 something women stanning male actors and are also anti-SNSD for the most part, so some of you were right on with the scandal possibly being sabotage

what do you guys think could be the 'mega' scandal? i'm hoping for a same-sex idol couple scandal, that is later proven true, so those who say korea has no homosexuals can stuff a stick up their ass

it better be something good because i am bored

Honestly, I don't see why scandals are such a big deal.
Probably because I'm used to American media.
But I secretly hope it is juicy
tterriffic 29th-Dec-2012 09:48 am (UTC)
I predict another famous actor having a secret wife and a kid.

Or a SNSD scandal, since it's on the 1st. Doubt it though.

baroness 29th-Dec-2012 09:54 am (UTC)
yeah, that wife and kid thing seems likely.

after the iu thing im just expecting a huge disappointment
goldynchickie 29th-Dec-2012 10:26 am (UTC)
Stop trying to make this 'scandal' happen! It's not going to happen!

Mean Girls reference...I like it lol xD

the koreans netizens were harsh with sooyoung. They really think actors are superior to idols.
miwa201 29th-Dec-2012 11:44 am (UTC)
mte. even if won bin was linked to yoona, the most popular snsd member, they would have still bashed her.
ceecile 29th-Dec-2012 11:43 am (UTC)
Idk but I really want a scandal. I'm bored. But after the IU/Eunhyuk thing which had all the potential of being the most awesome scandal but turned out lame.. Not getting my hopes up.
I don't want it to harm anybody either.. Conflicting desires..

sooyoung and won bin would be a couple with waaaay too good looks... *o*

Scandals get covered up way too well and quickly in this business lmao :'( I wonder what it is tho
dipropylene 29th-Dec-2012 02:16 pm (UTC)
That 'mega' scandal is most likely going to be something lame.
teukiesu 29th-Dec-2012 02:44 pm (UTC)
when has dispatch ever been legit tho
laceandskin 29th-Dec-2012 03:07 pm (UTC)
The only thing that can be considered a mega scandal to me is an idol sex tape.

some people are calling sme out for ~media play~ lol what the hell kind of media play has sme ever done to link sooyoung and won bin together?
asnindie 29th-Dec-2012 09:30 pm (UTC)
There's been alot of media play recently so netizens are really skeptical, and this thing coming days before their comeback would be suspicious if they were Terror or some nugu but SM don't suually do these kinds of media play.
kamoteatmani 29th-Dec-2012 04:28 pm (UTC)
I'd ship it either way. But I kindof feel bad for Sooyoung because of those ahjummas going at her :/
eishastan 29th-Dec-2012 05:16 pm (UTC)
Poor Sooyoung! those ugly old bitches can fuck off with their "sabotage"
noneko 29th-Dec-2012 06:59 pm (UTC)
i always hope that yoona will run off with a western girl. imagine the fallout, south korea would explode.
taiyouhana 30th-Dec-2012 07:16 am (UTC)
omg it would be glorious to watch
supplanter 29th-Dec-2012 07:16 pm (UTC)
Lol at this whatever-Dispatch-is announcing that they have something amazing to unveil, then promptly backtracking to say "uh, it might not be that amazing, can't you wait till we announce it at least? D:"

This would be amaaaaazing. I'd love it.

I hope the scandal is something interesting. They better not be getting us all worked up over nothing.

I really think the Won Bin-Sooyoung thing is fake. And it could be a hoo-ha used to conceal an actual serious and genuine scandal. Haha.
muzegrey 29th-Dec-2012 08:27 pm (UTC)
Won Bin is my pick for the most likely to be gay actor in S. Korea. So I doubt this.
asnindie 29th-Dec-2012 09:32 pm (UTC)
Him and Song Sueng hoon are getting it on in rl....or maybe just my innocent mind
asnindie 29th-Dec-2012 09:34 pm (UTC)
"i'm hoping for a same-sex idol couple scandal"

I hope not, especially if it's not them personally coming out. Imagine the stress and crap they'll have to face. Korea needs time and there's enough gay suicides in the past due to this kind of stuff. Though if there's no solid evidence this kind of scandal will be forgotten.
muzegrey 29th-Dec-2012 09:50 pm (UTC)
Well Hong Suk Chun finally has regained popularity to a point. I don't think it would be terrible forever. But I think those people would have to suffer years of backlash before they could recover and they'd have to be really strong like HSC. But I think once more celebs start coming out it is easier to accept on a mainstream level.
xcherryblossomx 30th-Dec-2012 01:58 am (UTC)
Hope its something juicy! We need a good start for ~2013~
lysblack 30th-Dec-2012 03:56 am (UTC)
i'm curious about the real thing!
lynethia 30th-Dec-2012 09:08 am (UTC)
Hope the "mega scandal" is worth the wait.
