Taeyeon Under Fire (Again) & to Take Action Against Malicious Comments

After Girls’ Generation’s stage on Inkigayo on Sunday, Taeyeon is under fire for allegedly showing attitude problems on stage.

Taeyeon has been the recent hot topic of discussion after allegedly showing attitude problems on stage as she performed with Girls’ Generation on Inkigayo last Sunday.

On July 19th, the group was nominated for first place and appeared on stage to perform their latest comeback track, “Party.” While on stage, however, Taeyeon was seen skipping their original choreography, solely doing other moves, portraying an insincere performance.

DSP introduces two members for their upcoming new girl group 'April'

it was then revealed that the group name, April doesn’t really refer to the month of April; rather, it was the combination of A (meaning best) and pril, which stands for lovely femininity. The logo, which features a partial heart, then represents the group’s incomplete heart that will be filled and completed by the fans’ love.

BoA talks about her aversion to vegetables as a result of dieting trauma


Article: 'Please Take Care of My Fridge' BoA blames her diet trauma "I don't eat vegetables often because of it"

Source: TV Daily via Nate

"Into my late teens, my agency thought I was too overweight so they made me eat salads for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or blended drinks. I lost a lot of weight that way but then they said I lost too much weight. Because of that negative experience, I don't eat vegetables much anymore."

[netizens comments]
1. [+291, -17] No wonder BoA never grew in height, all SM did was feed her salads at an age where she needs nutrients to grow tsk tsk. Greedy SM bastards.

2. [+227, -11] Seriously, listening to the lengths BoA went to with her diets makes my diet pale in comparison ㅠ How can you live without carbs ㅜㅜㅜ It was really cute watching her let it all out on the show though ㅋㅋ

3. [+149, -9] Time flew by with this episode, BoA's so charming. I really liked how she judged each dish with such manners and pointed out the pros and cons. Cool on stage but respectful elsewhere.

4. [+29, -1] She was just chubby then.. can't imagine the stress she must've been under being told to lose weight and then being told she lost too much weight. She was just a kid back then.

5. [+24, -1] I remember when she was promoting 'No. 1' and 'Atlantis Princess', she wore crop tops that showed her stomach and people talked so much about her belly fat showing. She was right at the age where she should be growing too... and then she dropped a ton of weight for 'My Name' and came out with abs.

6. [+22, -4] I felt so bad for her ㅠㅠ but now she's so pretty and respectful ㅎㅎ fun episode today

7. [+17, -4] It's not too late to lose weight after you're done growing ㅠㅠㅠ Look at Sulli, she dropped all the weight after her height was done growing and now she's so pretty...

8. [+14, -0] SM was bad then but so were the hateful commenters who called her chubby and demanded that she lose weight. She was so young back then and wasn't even fat compared to the activities she had to complete with her promotions but people still told her to lose weight... So sad to see skinny stars being forced to diet.

9. [+12, -2] I remember reading that she only ate seaweed for her diet back then, and she was really young too

10. [+10, -0] BoA never grew in height probably because of her diets but also because she started doing hardcore dances at such a young age. She began break dancing and popping since elementary school... Isn't that why Shinhwa's Lee Minwoo never grew either.......

[Round 2: Debate]ROUND 2: Debate

this role model trait was about CL's multilingualism and braininess, so they looked at the girls' academic records and other talents, and they had 3min 1v1 debates and solo speeches. (I won't translate their debates, but if anyone wants to know the gist of any argument just leave a comment!)

[Round 3: Body management tips]
Episode 5

ROUND 3: Body management tips

most of this segment was edited out for time, but it's similar to ep1 where the girls all filmed 3-minute videos, this time about how they stay healthy and fit (they're all basically cooking and working out lol). if the judges didn't like the videos or found them boring, they'd hit their red buttons and the video would be stopped. the longer their video gets to play, the higher their ranking.

1. Jisoo

2. Alice

3. Sihyun

4: Solbin

5: Dahye

6. Daye

[Round 4: Rap battle]ROUND 4: Rap battle

this round was pretty entertaining tbh.. I was pleasantly surprised by Minhee and Jisoo's rapping tones, and Alice's Nutella/Interstellar diss was SO bad and hilarious lol. (I won't be embedding the clips because they're unsubbed, but you can watch them on MBC Every1's channel here)


battle of the rappers

Dahye (15)
vs Sihyun (10)

battle of the maknaes

2. Solbin
3. Alice
4. Dahye
5. Jei, Daye
7. Minhee
8. Sihyun
9. Daeun
10. Yerin


[DRUMROLL........]the original intention was to eliminate the bottom 5 based on their cumulative rankings from eps 1-5, but since there was a tie for 5th place, only 4 were to be eliminated and replaced by another member from their respective groups.

1. Dahye
2. Daeun
3. Jisoo, Alice
5. Sihyun, Solbin

BOTTOM FOUR: Yerin, Minhee, Daye, Jei

BUT PLOT TWIST! after filming ended, the bottom four's managers met individually with the show's PD and discussed possible member replacements. turns out the managers have the power to decide whether they want to switch out the girls with another member or keep them on the show, so...

FINAL DECISIONS: Jei and Daye will be replaced by other members from their respective groups, while Minhee and Yerin will remain on the show.

I'm glad that these two eps were more entertaining and didn't focus on their bodies for once, but what kind of pointless elimination concept... glad for Yerin and Minhee, but I'll miss Daye's explosive reactions and Jei's chipmunk face and faux-rivalry with Jisoo :( but oh well... both Berry Good and Fiestar get to have more member exposure, so that's the bright side I guess? not that this shitty show is helping any of the cast members anyway
