Welcome to 202NE1! Today, we’re going to discuss Jisoo’s English being criticized in a list of most beautiful faces by TC Candler, the Dispatch Couple being Revealed, Elkie and Cube Entertainment updates and Bom seemingly being mistreated by her manager and fans’ consequent reactions.
So TC Candler are known for their yearly 100 most beautiful faces list. Which they consider “the most internationally recognized and prestigious list of its kind”, and Jisoo was number 50 this year, her highest ranking and she has appeared on it once before.
Now that’s not the issue here, in fact the issue is the caption that they wrote for her which says “her english is a pity” which even within context, doesn’t make sense for a list about aesthetic perfection.
For those who don’t know, one of Jisoo’s favourite phrases in English is “that’s a pity” and there is even a clip in which we see that she learns the phrase and then uses it on Lisa, who mispronounces Dumpling. But the context of that clip differs entirely from Jisoo herself being on a list of beautiful faces and having the caption that says her english is a pity.
So of course, fans were quite angry and so we started to see #/APOLOGIZETOJISOOTCCandler trending on twitter. It seems they responded to a few people regarding this, but their main stance on the issue was the following: “if you don’t get that the Jisoo line was her own joke,...then I don’t know what to tell you. We love Jisoo...and she will like that joke. End of discussion.” which has since been removed.
And this response angered people even more, because again, the joke was seemingly taken out of context. As of now, TC Candler has not left any other responses to this, but let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
We also have Dispatch’s 2021 couple! So this year on January 1st, Dispatch did indeed end up revealing a new couple, but it was not 7 kpop couples as many people were theorizing previously. Though many people pointed out, that dispatch didn’t mean they would reveal 7 couples, but rather a couple that had been dating for 7 months.
I did want to take a moment to talk about Elkie and her lawsuit against cube! So I took a break from Kpop news last week, and a lot ended up happening so I’m sure we’re all aware of what is going on, but essentially, Elkie from CLC filed a lawsuit against her company, cube entertainment, she is asking for a termination of her contract because she alleges that Cube violated said contract on multiple occasions. For example, she claims she never received pay for her acting jobs and that cube kept that money. She also claims that Cube informed CLC that they would no longer support the group. The law firm then demands that the contract be terminated and her financial statements be sent to her within 15 days.
However, an update to this is that Elkie posted handwritten letters to her fans on Instagram in English, Korean and Chinese.
We also had Park Bom seemingly being mistreated by her manager on a V-live that was in the news. So essentially, Bom was having fun on instagram live with her fans when her manager walked in, said something along the lines of that she had gotten a call, and then told Bom to end her live. Fans noticed that the manager seemed angry, and were not quite happy with the interaction, and so we saw #/RespectParkBom trending on Twitter and it actually became quite a big thing.
