Disney Korea's "Mickey Mouse Club"

Netizens aren’t happy with SM Entertainment‘s current female SMROOKIES members, regarding them as untalented as a whole.
In a post published on September 25th through the online community board Pann and titled “This is crazy, I just heard to SMROOKIES girls singing and…”, the original poster continues to complain, saying, “They’re all bad, especially Rami. They’re worse than then worst SM group ever….SM’s going down hilll….”
Currently, both boys and girls currently in SM Entertainment‘s SMROOKIES team – chosen trainees who are one step closer to making their official debut – are being featured in Disney Korea’s Mickey Mouse Club, getting exposed to the public. They include Mark, Hina, Herin, Donghyuk, Lami, Koeun, Jaemin, Jeno, and Jisung.
In early July 2015, Hina, Koeun, and Herin were announced to have joined SMROOKIES. This follows months after Irene, Wendy, and Seulgi – all previously SMROOKIES members – officially made their debut as part of Red Velvet in August 2014.

Suho Yongma Land

Located in the wooded areas of Yongmasan, Yongma Land opened in 1980 as a humble, family-friendly amusement park.

Complete with a carousel, bumper cars, and a ferris wheel, Yongma Land was a popular location for local families for the first decade after it opened. Unable to compete with other larger and flashier amusement parks opening up in Seoul, however, Yongma Land officially closed down in 2011.

With it’s ghost town-like charms, however, Yongma Land became a popular location for urban explorers and photographers who were drawn to the amusement park’s retro appeal. For a mere 5,000 won ($5 USD), visitors are welcomed into the dilapidated Yongma Land and are free to roam and take pictures. For an extra 25,000 won, the owner is even able to turn on the carousel’s lights for about five minutes.

Because of it’s unique abandoned atmosphere, Yongma Land has also become a popular filming location for Korean dramas and k-pop idols. IU shot portions of the photobooklet for her second album Last Fantasy at Yongma Land.

All of the outdoor filming locations for Crayon Pop‘s famous music video “Bar Bar Bar” were also filmed at Yongma Land.

Perhaps most recently, EXO used Yongma Land as a location for the jacket photo shoot for their Love Me Right repackage album.

While visiting Yongma Land, idols claimed its atmosphere was truly haunting and eerie, in a sort of beautiful tranquil sort of way. It would surely be a terrifying place to stay overnight at, and one might expect to hear the laughs and footsteps of the kids who once played their years ago…
The abandoned park is located at 69-1 Mangubon-dong, Jungnang-gu, Seoul for those looking for a truly unique shooting location, or just looking to recreate some of their favorite idol’s photo shoots.

SM Entertainment

Out of all the beautiful female idols in the industry, Red Velvet‘s Irene has been gaining a lot of attention for her incredible visuals.
Although the SM Entertainment singer has gained a lot of attention since her debut for her beauty (even from her own group members), however, it appears that not everyone is convinced that she can be considered one of the top visuals in the industry.
In a recent post on Pann, a netizen questioned whether or not Irene was really as pretty as others make her out to be. A translation of the article can be found below:
Of course she’s pretty but i don’t think she should be in the top 10 honestly all of SNSD are prettier than IRENE ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Irene comes up on Facebook a lot and stuff, but I don’t think she’s deserving of such praise.She just has  a lot of female fans. Joy isn’t hat hot either and I don’t think Red Velvet is at that level yet and is overestimated.
