Lee Jong Suk used to not get along with IU?

There were rumors that Lee Jong Suk and IU had some tension with each other when they were both MCs together for 'Inkigayo'. The rumors stated that once the cameras were off, the pair never really talked to each other and didn't get along in the waiting room. On the June 4 episode of SBS' 'Incarnation', he admitted, "To be honest, when we were MCs together, we never really said anything to each other outside of the job." He explained, "Since the main demographic of 'Inkigayo' is young children, the expressions and costumes had to be 1-dimensional. I didn't like that, but IU would give her own input and ideas like, 'Let's dress up as Peter Pan'. I talked to the writer about these things, and I would have to dress up too." He continued, "IU wanted to do different costumes, and we did pretty much everything, like Leon and Mathilda. So I was a little bit annoyed. We even dressed up as a snowman. I didn't like bouncing around and stuff like that, so I didn't move around much, and I was later told that I looked a little rude." He finally admitted, "She has a cute image, but back then I didn't like her very much. I didn't want to talk to her about it, but when I was stepping down, I became sad. I guess we grew fondness for each other by fighting, it may sound weird, but that's what happened. When we contacted each other (afterwards), I asked her, 'Why did you do that? You knew I didn't like to do those type of things', and she said, 'I just wanted to put on a good performance (for the show)'. She also said, 'Oppa, you cheated and even talked to the writer about it'." He then clarified, "Now we're really close friends." ____ This kid is too honest... I love how he just admitted that he used to not get along with IU because she was too cute. And I sincerely he doesn't get hated because of this thing lol. On the other hand, MC is kind of expected to do these kinds of things... and actually he was still being professional and did it. He whined about it, but he tried it, so we can't really blame him, eh? Anyway, he realized he isn't made to do MC and just step down from the shows ^^

MBC Strike: What This Means for Kpop Fans
MBC is finally going on strike which is completely not normal for Korea. As you probably know, the working culture in Korea is insane, especially in the entertainment industry where everyone involved (not just the actors) often work 20-23 hours a day. There have recently been un uptick in suicides by writers and producers because of the immense stress put on them. MBC is also known here in Korea to be under the control of bigger powers, such as the old president who was impeached. Rather than sharing the real news, the anchors were forced to spin stories to be positive for the president and to support her because the owners of the station were being put under pressure by the corrupt government. Basically MBC is just bad news, and the workers are sick of it. As of this week, the workers have all stopped coming to work meaning unless something was previously recorded, there will be no news, no radio, no dramas, no nothing, until they get what they want (way better working conditions and probably a way better CEO) Because of this, it looks like a music festival has been cancelled as well. BTS V and Twice Dahyun were going to host it and its line up would have included BTS, TWICE, Red Velvet, B1A4, BTOB, Teen Top, B.A.P, MAMAMOO, GFRIEND, BLACKPINK, iKON, EXID, NU’EST W, Lovelyz, ASTRO, and PRISTIN. To be honest, I don't really care that this was cancelled, as I'd much rather have thousands of people's lives improved than watch a few groups perform one or two songs each that we've already heard before. I'm sad if this was anyone's one chance to see these groups live (like if they were vacationing to korea) but in the long run I think it will help a lot more people than it will inconvenience. Here's to hoping the working conditions of people behind the shows we love so much improve greatly <3
