NU’EST become ambassadors for Korea Scout Association



According to Pledis Entertainment, NU’EST, who recently made a comeback with their first mini-album ‘Action‘, are the new ambassadors of the Korea Scout Association.

The boys became the official endorsement models of the association on July 18 at the appointment ceremony in Yeoido. The Korea Scout Association is the national Scouting association of South Korea, and it aims to improve adolescents as citizens.

A representative from the Korea Scout Association stated, “As the NU’EST members are in their teens themselves and have been sending strong messages to adolescents in their debut album ‘Face‘ as well as their new album ‘Action‘, we decided that it would be fitting to appoint them as the ambassadors of the scouts, who support social contributions. We’re looking forward to their large role as the spokespersons for adolescents.”

The scouts exist in 131 countries across the world and include 30,000,000 members. South Korea alone has 370,000 active scouts.

The cars of the stars in South Korea


There are a few cars that are always in style no matter what the current trends are, and today’s Hallyu stars know exactly which.

Even the more ‘unpopular’ cars instantly become the most-searched items on internet portal sites once a huge celebrity is spotted in one of them. The cars driven by top stars in hit drama series also tend to become hot commodities, so it comes as no surprise that the stars’ personal vehicles are also making headline news.

A representative from professional used vehicle site CarPR explained, “Once the vehicle of a celebrity becomes written about, we receive a lot more calls and questions about the make and model of the car. There is increasingly more demand from consumers who are looking to purchase the same vehicles as the celebrities, but used, at a reduced cost.”

The cars of the celebrities were once considered unattainable ‘dream cars’, but that is no longer the case. Purchasing used vehicles allows individuals to obtain the cars of the celebrities at discount prices.

So how much does the average person spend have to drive a used model of the stars’ vehicles?

Sadomasochism, the Internet, and SK Teens

12202503

TRIGGER WARNING

On the evening of June 3, a 40-year-old man pulled up in front of a house in Seoul to pick up a 12-year-old girl.

He then drove about 40 minutes to a secluded area on the outskirts of the city, parked the car and ordered her to remove her clothes.

Until that moment, the girl had not suspected anything was wrong. After all, she was the one who connected with him through Kakao Talk to “get spanked.”

It was all supposed to be fun and maybe a little exciting. It was not supposed to end with her being raped.

The case last month was shocking both for the rape itself and the ease with which the girl and man connected through an Internet cafe. Such cafes, which are seldom regulated, allow members to share photos and video clips of sadistic or other sexually related punishment.

Korea Internet search engines such as Naver and Daum offer diverse services, including e-mail, personal blogs and Internet cafes, which consist of user groups built around shared interests.

Sometimes, those interests are just eccentric; sometimes they are dangerous.
