NB from TV Daily via Nate " Jun Hyun Moo said he would costume himself as Ghana cast member Sam Ochiri if the show hits 3% in viewer ratings and the journalist/netizens call him out for laughing and making a joke out of blackface.

Some netizens said, "He doesn't seem to know how racist and disrespectful blackface is in our country. Especially at a public event, I cannot understand how the staff around him also cheered him on when he said he would do blackface."

Another said, "Imagine if at another foreign event, foreigners said they would dress themselves as Korean if they achieved something? Imagine them sitting there while slanting their eyes and laughing about it."

[netizen reactions (((TW: SOME ARE TRULY SMH-RME WORTHY...)))]
1. [+449, -63] Fu*k, then if Jun Hyun Moo said he was going to dress himself as Sam Hammington, I doubt there would be any articles saying he was being racist against whites. The journalist is an idiot, he's the one with the biased view thinking dressing yourself as black is being racist against them.

2. [+314, -43] This trash journalist makes no sense with this article

3. [+224, -31] The journalist is the one viewing everything with prejudice, how mean of him

4. [+25, -1] I think I'd feel bad if I was Sam Ochiri. He's not unique or anything, he just happens to be black. He dresses like any average person and is quite a humorous person with a good personality. What exactly is Jun Hyun Moo going to dress himself as Sam Ochiri with? I doubt Sam Ochiri will find that funny at all. Jun Hyun Moo is so thoughtless, I don't understand why he said that. Show exactly what Jun Hyun Moo said to everyone in Sam Ochiri's hometown and ask them if it's racist or not. This is Jun Hyun Moo's fault entirely.

9. [+20, -2] Blackface is definitely racism. The fact that he's dressing himself as black to make people laugh gives the impression that he views black people as entertainment. Jun Hyun Moo wouldn't have offered to dress himself black if he didn't think it'd be funny. The first best reply: instead of asking if dressing white would be racism against white people, how about you think first about the fact that he didn't even consider Sam Hammington because costuming yourself white isn't funny to begin with. He chose a black person specifically because he knew it'd be funny.

10. [+17, -2] Look at the situation. He's costuming himself black as a penalty, how is that not racism? It's racism because he's doing it as a joke, as something funny. And adding on, you cannot be racist against white people. You can dress like them, do anything you want about them, but white people will always be above all of the races and that's reality.

11. [+16, -2] If someone on an American show dressed themselves as Asian for the pure purpose of being funny, would we be able to accept it coolly? Remember when we all hated on those Hollywood stars for forcing slanted eyes in their pictures? Jun Hyun Moo probably didn't mean ill harm but he definitely needs to apologize.

“Roommate” Cast Members Criticized for Behavior While Driving

Members of the cast of the celebrity share-house reality show “Roommate” are receiving criticisms from viewers for their behaviors while driving.

On the 11th episode of the show aired on July 13, the roommates went on a vacation together, with Seo Kang Joon, Park Min Woo, Park Bom, Song Ga Yeon, and Hong Soo Hyun driving to the camping site.

While driving, Park Min Woo, who said that he could not sleep the previous night and was tired, started falling asleep while at the wheel, eventually drifting towards the guard rail. Seo Kang Joon noticed the drifting car and tried to wake up Park Min Woo.

Once alert, Park Min Woo turned the car, but it still swerved, causing Park Bom to shout out a swear word, which was bleeped out in the show.

The viewers are criticizing how Park Min Woo had to drive despite being in a bad condition, and how Seo Kang Joon was not wearing his seat belt while sitting in the passenger seat. Park Bom’s swearing is also receiving criticism.

Hyomin's Interview with Arena Homme+

Hyomin’s Summer

Hyomin wants to change. In order to change, she cut her hair short and dyed it yellow. She will stand solo on the stage, not with T-ara, and sing a song that emphasizes on her body. To her, this might be an unfamiliar summer.

Why won’t she show that she doesn’t like this? We thought about this while splashing water over Hyomin’s body with a hose. It was mid-June but there was no sun. Wind was blowing, and It looked like it’d rain soon. We did the photo-shoot on the rooftop. We sprayed the cold water from the hose at her, who was shivering with cold. It was extremely cold. Because even I, who was splashing the water, was shivering. If you look at famous women or women famous for being pretty, you’d imagine their annoyed expression. Because then, they’d look less pretty. It will become less difficult, and you wont be nervous. Hyomin was positive. She was cute with her enthusiasm. She was happy and dancing when told we’ll buy her an iced americano. She smiled so easily. She didn’t look 26 years old but rather looked like a 16y/o girl. She said she wants to change. Like when a girl wears make up hoping to become a woman.

Hyomin talks about wanting to throw away her pretty looks, internet comments, being forced to do everything she's told, and her future!

B1A4 Naver Starcast interview + bts footage

Q. What do you think is the most important thing when you're recording?
Jinyoung: The members all have very different voices and charms. So I feel that the most important thing is for the members to naturally bring out the best points of their individual voices. Hence to achieve that, the members try to talk a lot about the song. If we discuss about it together, we are able to bring out the feeling behind the song. We record trying to follow the mood or feeling of the song by blending the members' voice naturally in. The members say I'm too strict! But that's definitely not the case :) Haha
CNU: I think a comfortable mood is most important. I try to practice as much as I can right until I record. I analyze the song to see how I can best bring out the mood, and practice it several times to understand it better. But on the day of recording, I leave it up to my condition on that day and try to record in a comfortable mood. I think I record best when I'm most comfortable since I sing more naturally.

You might remember A.T from when her MV for Melancholy was posted on here, She also has one of my favorite MVs of all time, "Don't Be" (feat Geeks) that I highly recommend!
