A South Korean teen went online to share an interesting conundrum…she’s too infatuated with boys.
“I have a problem. I’m really, really infatuated with men… Not just this man or that man. Any men. It’s like I have no standards.”
She clarified that it didn’t feel like an addiction per say, that she’d die if she didn’t date them, but that she found out almost all men just meet her standards.
“What’s weird is that I don’t get that feeling of, oh my god I want to be with him or I’ll die. I just think meh… he’s good enough. If he’s “that”, “that’s” not bad. It wouldn’t be a total loss to date him. I keep getting these thoughts. “
The teen even confessed that there’s just so many eligible bachelors for her and it’s not that she falls in love easily but that she technically can fall in love with anyone.
“It’s not like I’m someone who falls in love fast though. It’s just… I like every guy. If you’re a guy, I like you”
But the internet was there to save her and offer their heartfelt advice, telling her she’s not alone.
“I kind of know what you’re talking about… I read signs wrong, it’s a disease. If anyone does anything nice to me, I misinterpret it as something else…”
“ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I know how you feel! What’s even funnier is that I don’t like to date though.”
“Oh my god, I know how you feel ㅠㅠㅠㅠ That’s why my wish is to really meet someone who truly loves me for my first love.”
“What the fuc*k. Are you me?”
Some people blamed it on her hormones changing.
“Since you’re at that age, that’s normal. It’s the hormones, little girl.”
While other cautioned to be careful not to do anything she would regret…
“My friend is like that… she should control herself before she does anything she regrets if you know what I mean.”

“I have a problem. I’m really, really infatuated with men… Not just this man or that man. Any men. It’s like I have no standards. I don’t care if they’re not good looking or if they’re short. If they look good enough and tall enough then I just like them all. What’s weird is that I don’t get that feeling of, oh my god I want to be with him or I’ll die. I just think meh… he’s good enough. If he’s “that”, “that’s” not bad. It wouldn’t be a total loss to date him. I keep getting these thoughts. I also imagine how we would look if we dated. Just look in my classroom right now, there are at least 5 boys who fit my criteria. ;;; Even as I’m writing this, what’s dumbfounding is that… I’m just talking about my own classroom. If you broaden the spectrum to our entire school, my church or even my after-school cram academy… There are so, so many guys that fit my criteria. How can I fix this? It’s not like I’m someone who falls in love fast though. It’s just… I like every guy. If you’re a guy, I like you;;; What’s surprising is that I actually keep this timid, forever alone persona with my friends. They would never imagine that I have all this craziness for guys in my head… Sigh… I hate myself ㅠㅠㅠ”
Lovelyz was forced to perform in short skirts even though the weather was -11°C (12°F).
Even with the freezing weather, the group’s performance outfits were a thin coat, short skirts, and knee-high stockings if the members wanted to wear them.
Being professionals, the members kept their smile as best as they could, but it was still impossible to fully hide the fact they were freezing.
The members huddled together and jumped around to try and keep warm as they shouted out that they weren’t cold.
The past few days have brought extremely cold weather in Korea, often reaching double-digit negatives (Celsius).
Watch Lovelyz’s full performance below.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism surveyed numerous entertainment companies and the amount of trainees there are in Korea right now is shocking.
They surveyed a total of 1440 trainees in Korean entertainment companies, and 75% of them are singer trainees.
750 trainees are male while 690 are female. 445 of these trainees are not under contract and can be let go at any time.
The age breakdown of the trainees was also revealed.
775 are older than 19, 529 between the ages of 16-18, 118 between 13-15, 15 between 9-12, and 3 who are 8 or younger.
Entertainment agencies spend an average of ₩1,182,000 KRW ($1111 USD) a month on a single trainee.
The reason there are so many trainees in Korea is that if they hit big, they’ll be set for life.
Korean culture and arts amassed a revenue of nearly $5 billion USD in 2017, with top A-level artists averaging ₩40 million KRW ($37,600 USD) a month.
However, all the success stories also come with struggles.
The average monthly salary for the 8059 registered actors, singers, comedians, and models is only ₩1.83 million KRW ($1720 USD).
2,805 of them say they make less than ₩1 million KRW ($940 USD) a month and 2,893 say they have second jobs to supplement their income.
