ASTRO Promotes Tampons/Pads and I Am Here for It.

Yep, ASTRO is officially the brand models for Secret Day, a company that makes feminine hygenie products aka menstral pads wooooo!!!!

'Secret Day' explained, "They were selected because they have this sincere image of a considerate boyfriend who understands their girlfriend."

And I'm pretty sure you get photo cards too? Maybe? In which case, I'm looking forward to that time of month LMAO.

Why do I think this is really groovy?

Because periods have always been a thing that have been ~gross~ and make men feel ~uncomfortable~ (tbh its the mark of a truly awesome man if he's cool enough to go buy you pads when you need them)

Having men promote the product, especially idols that are meant to be role models, might help guys realize that they should be understanding and if they have a special lady in their life, they should be there to get through the tough times (some of the commercials include ASTRO giving out chocolate which, at least in my personal case, is NECESSARY during that time of month hahahhaa)

I think this is a really cool idea!

And here's the behind the scenes:

This comes right after a story that spread all through Korean news sites:

A girl was sitting on the bus when she got her period unexpectedly, there was a small blood stain on her leg and a man who was standing next to her saw it. He "accidentally" spilled the strawberry milk he was drinking near her seat and apologized, giving her his jacket to cover the milk stain.
โ€œIโ€™m sorry I spilled it. You can take my clothes and tie it around you before you leave,โ€ he said!

A boy's friend posted about it online, the girl responded thanking him, and now that boy is a national hero lol!

Boys who are man enough to understand menstration are my favorite boys hahahahah

Jail Time for Big Hit Blackmailer + Calls for Reported to Resign!
So, first part of the controversy is this: A CEO was sentenced to one year in prison for "blackmailing Big Hit Entertainment, threatening to reveal information to the public about alleged illegal marketing by the agency." Basically, Big Hit used a company 2 years ago to do marketing for them, then suddenly the company (that was financially struggling) came back and said they were going to release this ~secret~ about Big Hit unless they paid them a lot of money (approximately $291,000) Big Hit was like, wtf, and they said they have nothing to hide (the 'secret' was related to illegal marketing allegedly) They said: โ€œBig Hit has nothing to hide, so as soon as we became aware of the situation, we filed a report with the police and actively cooperated with investigations.โ€ โ€œIf Big Hitโ€™s reputation ends up being damaged by these claims and reports, despite the our immediate handling of the situation by filing a report and cooperatingย with police, then there will be no entertainment agency in the future that can take appropriateย measures in the face of blackmail.โ€ โ€œWeโ€™re very sorry to the BTS members and ARMY for the alarm that was caused with this issue. We will do everything we can and carefully manage our business partners and contractors to prevent something like thisย from ever happening again.โ€ The CEO was found guilty for blackmail and was sentenced to a year in jail. Now, for the second part of the controvery: There is one reporter, Jeon Won, who works for a site called xsports who hates BTS with a passion. She heard the report about the marketing company finding "illegal marketing practices" and posted about how that is PROOF that BTS bought their Billboard award and that they should return it, that BTS are cheaters. *eye roll* Here's what she wrote: โ€œWith the accusations of illegal marketing practices, BTSโ€™ eligibility for the โ€˜Top Social Artistโ€™ award comes to suspicion. The winner of the award is determined by the hashtag votes and BTS has received more than 300 million. However, some netizens are now questioning the legitimacy. If the marketing took place with the use of part-time employees (to increase votes), then itโ€™ll be fair for BTS to return the trophy.โ€ You can hear her voice here from a press conference. She's the same reporter who clamined that BTS cheated on winning awards on music shows and she also announced one of their comeback dates before Big Hit did (which is a shitty move as a reporter). Now #์—‘์Šคํฌ์ธ _์ „์›๊ธฐ์ž_์‚ฌ๊ณผํ•ด (XSports_ReporterJeongWon_Apologize!) is trending WORLDWIDE. Since the "illegal marketing practices" were found to be lies, that means her only evidence that the Billboard Awards were bought is not true people want her to apologize but so far all that has happened is her article has ~disappeared~ Glad BTS won this round but jeez, when will people learn?!
