BRODUCE 98: Kwon Hyun Bin deletes all photos on instagram after recent backlash

YGKPLUS trainee Kwon Hyun Bin has deleted all the photos from his Instagram account following backlash from his appearance on “Produce 101 Season 2.”

During the episode that aired on April 28, Kwon Hyun Bin was shown alongside other trainees as they rehearsed Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry” for the group battle competition.

On this day, many viewers were turned off by what they saw as an insincere attitude from Kwon Hyun Bin as he didn’t take the time to properly learn the choreography.

The trainer who came in to check up on Group 2 told Kwon Hyun Bin off for his lack of preparation, but Pledis’s Kim Jong Hyun came to his defense, blaming himself and saying, “I think it’s because I didn’t do my job as the leader of this group properly."

Even after this, Kwon Hyun Bin would inconvenience his team by often disappearing during rehearsals, saying that he’s someone who needs a lot of sleep.

netizens ain't here for hyuna & the boys

Article: "A unit that brings something new"... Triple H, Hyuna's version of rebellious sexiness

1. [+1,202, -38] The concept... is a bit... much... yup;
2. [+792, -43] Breadwinner Hyuna...
3. [+606, -18] What is going on
4. [+422, -23] Hyuna's suffering for this ㅠ but I feel like this unit isn't getting attention anyway ㅠ (OP note: *looks at upvotes of all three articles* ok if you say so 👀)
5. [+293, -8] Isn't this concept too much? What do they expect students to learn from this? (OP note: then what do they expect students to learn from wolf for example? 🤔) Their agency is so irresponsible.
6. [+284, -5] They all look drugged out... I feel bad for them
7. [+274, -4] Feels wrong to glamorize bad things like drugs, suicide attempts, kissing in the bathroom... The music video makes it seem like that's a normal lifestyle
8. [+235, -3] It concerns me that they're idols whose main consumer base are teens... they're showing negative sexual things to them ㅠㅠ
9. [+217, -6] Aigoo, this is quite dirty

DIA reveals finding soju bottles next to Chaeyeon when she sleeps

"I use the same room as Chaeyeon and whenever I come back from finishing a schedule, I always find soju bottles next to Chaeyeon. The members don't like drinking so she drinks by herself."

1. [+391, -26] Don't make stories up ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ don't act like she does this every day when it's probably her first time ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ this whole "free spirited" act isn't believable ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
2. [+313, -23] Sigh, you'll say anything to get in the headlines, right? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ You're going to get hate if you keep making up stories like this ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
3. [+285, -24] DIA... your career will DIE if you keep saying stuff like this...
4. [+24, -6] Are they eyeing a soju CF or...?
5. [+21, -4] It's not even something positive to share, why would you share this about your own team member....
6. [+18, -0] Such an obviously made up story... what does that make her then, an alcoholic?
7. [+14, -0] It honestly does sound made up. I'd understand if it was beer or whatever but soju?
8. [+13, -4] ?? Or maybe she didn't make it up? Because I remember Chaeyeon said on a show that she uses soju bottles to massage her face when it's swollen in the morning
9. [+10, -1] The story sounds like something her agency made her make up to get in the headlines ㅋㅋ
10. [+9, -3] I thought she'd end the story with how Chaeyeon uses it to massage herself but ㅋㅋ straight up likes drinking ㅋㅋ
11. [+4, -1] Doesn't that also mean Chaeyeon's going through hard times to drink them away?
12. [+3, -0] Makes her sound like an alcoholic

Lee Dong Gun and Jo Yoon Hee Married and Pregnant



Two months after Lee Dong Gun and Jo Yoon Hee admitted that they were dating, (and 3 months after his breakup with Jiyeon was confirmed) it has now been revealed that they have legally gotten married and are expecting a child!

Lee Dong Gun himself wrote to his fans, “I am writing this because I think all of you should be the first ones to know. Jo Yoon Hee and I, who met through a drama and became lovers, have registered our marriage and legally become husband and wife. While preparing to get married, we were blessed with a child, and we are thankfully and eagerly waiting for the child’s birth. For now, I will be focusing on my drama ‘Seven Day Queen’ (tentative title), and we will hold a private wedding with our family and close acquaintances once I am done with the project. I am unsure about how this news will be received by my fans who have always supported me, but as much as I want to become a better actor and a happier person, it is my wish to receive blessings from all of you. Please look over us warmly. In order to repay the love I’ve received from everyone, I will work hard to become an even better actor and a great husband.”
