I found Little Forest have more soompi official update (SBS), but so less update on Siberia Expedition (TVN). Any idea why @triplem?

 

This train trip a bit secretive :lol:

Ahem Lee Joon Hyuk in DS60. He’s being smarmy again . Here  he’s not corrupted but a delusional terrorist !  But I forgive him since he gave me a shirtless scene ..:lol:. If he reprises his role in Stranger, I do hope he’ll redeem himself abit . #fangirlproblems 

SJR yeah it seems he’s not getting the sort of roles I’d like him to have but then again it’s so competitive in SK , I Guess not every actor gets the chance to be picky . 

His acting is alright , not exactly award winning sort , but I like him nevertheless.

@Lmangla @Lawyerh he actually helped her out when her career was down . The original lead actress for the weekend drama left just before airing , so he recommended to the PD & asked her to come on board. So they are still friends IRL but nothing romantic. The weekend drama was stressful to watch , i couldn’t pass maybe 20 eps . I liked them in WGM - enjoyed their segments. So I guess one man’s meat is another man’s poison eh.

people find WGM a weird show but I loved it and always look back on it fondly for what it taught me about relationships. it was amazing to read what people noticed in terms of body language and then gave interpretations. I am like blind and pay more attention to the scenery but it seriously gave me lots of food for thought when it came to how men and women form relationships, the really subtle clues and how different personalities come into play. it was also such a game changer to realize that we all have different definitions of romance. it was also fascinating to see how people relate -- sometimes, it would be based on whether they loved the dynamic and wanted it for themselves or maybe they saw themselves personality wise in that guy or girl. honestly, the shipper community can be a fascinating psych study. so yea, I loved the WGM thread because it was fascinating to read so much insight from a virtual marriage while laughing and giggling over basically nothing.... :sweatingbullets:

thats true @angelangie, a show can't go on forever.. but you know some of these WGM couples do form good friendships even afterwards like our taecgui.

 

one of my favourites from WGM besides taecgui was jo seho and cao lu. and it is funny because they are not that romantic where they are exploding with chemistry and would have a sultry gif like @Lawyerh posted but I really enjoyed them. when they first meet, she was hysterically disappointed to be paired with him but then says, it is okay, lets do it.

 

so, it seemed like seho was a bit reserved with her and I was totally startled when in one interview segment, he said that he adored her. I was like "what??? when did this happen and we hardly see it." but then he explained then when they had to take the wedding photo, she took off her high heels so that they could be on the same height level and that kindness is something he would never forget. it was really sweet because he was so self-aware that he is a short, chubby guy. so even if it was a fake relationship, that gesture where she wanted to save face for him meant a lot to him in real life.

so it was no wonder that after the WGM stint ended, she kept popping in several of his variety shows as a guest. it was actually hilarious because the other hosts would do a "ahem, so who do we have here?" and both (especially seho) would giggle so much. my favourite re-appearance was with flower crew where you could really tell that this two were still comfortable and even cared for each other. he actually spent the night outdoors freezing in a tent because he didn't want her to do it and she looked like she was about to cry when he said he would switch with her. and it was funny because one of the hosts kept poking her with questions and she admitted that during the show filming, she really liked seho as he treated her well...

What is this?? He looks perfectly fine last week. Maybe because of the oversize clothes and camera angle :sweatingbullets:

@nrllee Let me add, no drinking and driving too. They are ban from that as well. 

 

You have to seperate here between bans and just being rookies. Drinking isn't allowed most of the times, but driving is not completely true. Maybe within the first two years, but most idols are allowed to drive once they aren't rookies anymore. Most of Dreamcatcher members drive by now, they even do Vlogs about it. TWICE Members also drive, Jihyo even drove to Kang Daniel according to the news.

 

Dating though is always pretty much a sealed deal and isn't allowed for years or until they really have hit an age where it's not important anymore or they are so successful, that it doesn't matter.

There is a contact they have ,literally called slave contract. In which whatever they earn will not be the exact same amount they got. Let say this idol earn 1 million in sales, at the end he will probably get a few hundred to nothing dollars as their exact earnings. Why? Throughout the time he is in this company under this contract, he will not know how much the company is spending on him for.. Transport, makeup, training, song writing etc.So after the sales, the company have the rights to take different percentages of the earnings to pay the fees of the crew members which at the end of the day, lead the idol to nothing much left. Meanwhile, they are given hours and hours of practice having little to none time to rest.

 

There are multiple videos of it on YouTube, but basically you do not see any money in your rookie years until you paid back what the company invested in you. Most of the time it takes around 2 or more years to fully pay your debt.

If you try to get out of the contract early or abandon being an idol, you have to pay it back yourself. There are tons of cases where it goes to court. 

But it is not true that you do not know how much the company spent on you, most idols said that you can go to your CEO and ask for a listing what the company paid to make you debut. 

 

Yes, it's a slave contract, but.......well.....you get the fame, the fans and most importantly, potential advertisement deals. Advertisement or any "personal" deals are not affected by this contract, so every money you earn in commercial films is yours. 

Kpop is business, the company spents money into your training, your visuals, maybe even PS, the crew. Most people forget that the crew is working hard too and they have families and kids to feed either. And somewhere the money has to come from. 

 

It's not the best, but business is business. Kpop Idol is work, it's a job. You are selling something.
