Minah Joins WAG Elite

Girl's Day's Minah has finally gotten a man, after years of lusting and dealing with pent-up sexual frustration!!

She's now dating South Korean footballer Son Heung Min, one of the few decent players from the South Korean National team that came home from the World Cup in virtual disgrace ("eat taffy/toffee" is an insult in Korean btw). While I for one am happy for Minah, seeing as how this is her big break at finally being able to quench the massive thirst she has been harboring for years, netizens were unamused.

Levels talk always irritates me, but this is especially baseless.
3. [+6,304, -149] Well Minah's hit the lottery

4. [+3,360, -274] Is that so... have a happy life

5. [+1,619, -127] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Heung Min-ah, where are your standards... she's below your level ㅋㅋㅋ and I don't think she's going to be waiting for just you while you're away in Germany ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+1,507, -91] This is so wrong... she's an idol and I get that she's pertty and all but her dating world class Heung Min? ㅋ Wow, fu*king impossible... Please wake up;;;

7. [+1,287, -47] Dating for two weeks ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ So they met up straight after Son Heung Min broke up with his ex ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Way to ruin your image that fast ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Manage your image

8. [+1,131, -50] Minah's hit the lottery... Girl's Day got popular thanks to Hyeri and Tony and now Minah's going to get popular off of our Heung Min...

9. [+1,138, -16] Wow... thanks to Son Heung Min's level, Girl's Day's company is off confirming it right on their own 

10. [+1,077, -47] Son Heung Min doesn't match Minah, he can do so much better

11. [+767, -40] What does Son Heung Min lack to date someone like Minah ㅡㅡ

12. [+701, -20] Not even two months but two weeks ㅋㅋㅋ Couldn't you have waited a bit longer,  journalists?

13. [+616, -22] Heung Min-ah, wake up...
It makes no sense man, he's not even that great of a player... If it was someone actually good and deserving of praise like my boy James Rodriguez of Colombia, SURE, it'd be "understandable" in the sense that "Yeah it's fucking stupid, but I can lower my brain to this level to understand it from that perspective."  BUT HE'S A NUGU IN THE FOOTBALL WORLD COMPARED TO ALL THE GREATS IN THE BUNDESLIGA...!! If anything, SHE'S more famous and internationally renowned than HE is, but I'm sure the mental hate block of Korean netizens prevents them from recognizing that. He's just paid more.

The worst part is probably the hypocritical bullshit that's the netizens complaining about the "media play" in all this.
1. [+522, -74] Girl's Day media plays with their boyfriends to get their name known. First Tony Ahn and now Son Heung Min..

2. [+318, -52] So much media play about this dating news...

3. [+367, -103] Son Heung Min's ex-girlfriend is Minah's department senior... but barely a month after they broke up, it's weird how he meets up with Minah straight after.

4. [+36, -14] I doubt Minah will be satisfied with any male idol anymore

5. [+27, -7] I don't care whether they're dating or not, it bothers me how there are so many comments putting Minah down and treating Son Heung Min to be some kind of amazing man without considering that it's just as weird for him to be dating someone new not even a month after breaking up with his ex... The both of them just don't look like a couple who will last a long time.

6. [+22, -5] Minah and Hyeri both started dating through SNS ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+20, -10] I doubt she hesitated at all... Probably tried to hit on him as much as she could.. I mean, it's Son Heung Min ㅋㅋ

8. [+20, -13] Have a great relationship but don't use Son Heung Min for your media play. No one cares now that news of you dating have broken out.

9. [+15, -9] Alright already! The public doesn't even care about Girl's Day dating news but the agency keeps using it as media play fodder like this tsk tsk tsk

10. [+11, -4] Son Heung Min all kills every female idol's boyfriend ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ So jealous of Minah... As if dating him isn't enough, she goes on dates with him in expensive supercars ㅋㅋㅋ She must have higher standards now after dating him ㅋㅋㅋ I bet Minah's parents would rather she quit being a singer and just marry him.. He's a walking company after all..
Okay, if people didn't care so much about who dates/fucks who or about this perceived "status imbalance, no one would be talking about it in the news anyway. Or more specifically, if none of those idiots commented or upvoted that shit, not many people would be hearing about in the first place. It's a self-feeding cycle of rage-fueled clicks and up-votes that pisses them off, but they don't seem to realize that they're making it worse. It's like stabbing yourself in the leg with a knife, using another knife to dig the first knife out, and complaining that your legs fucking hurt and/or have two fucking knives in them.

Shout-outs to Netizen #5 though for defending Minah and calling Son Heung Min out for being shady about getting on the dating train so quickly after his break up.

Anyway, I'm willing to chalk it all up to seething jealousy that a Korean girl has finally joined the ranks of the WAG elite, but you all already know Minah ain't even phased by this shit.

I just wanted to share this gif, tbh.

아저씨 adds:
When this came out they had also only been dating TWO FUCKING WEEKS, which in busy idol/athlete life equates to TWO FUCKING DATES. My mind cannot comprehend how anyone makes a big deal out of any relationship that is so early in its development. I mean seriously, think of anyone in your life you have only known for two weeks, or only spent quality time with twice, if there even are any such persons in your life at the moment. THAT is the extent of the reality here, no matter how much they like each other. I mean JESUS FUCKING CHRIST give them some breathing room to FUCKING MEET.


  1. Isn't surprising. Netizenbuzz posts every negative comment about a topic, and it's no secret that a lot of people can't stand Girl's Day.

  2. You're right. If anything, Minah is giving Son more international recognition than he would have had otherwise just at Leverkusen. More people probably know his as "the guy who's dating Minah." Leave it to Korean netizens to compare a Bundisliga babby to a household-name football star.

    1. I beg to differ. Just because EPL and El Classico are the only games you watch, doesn't mean Son is not a well-known player. He's been a hot prospect for the last few years and he sure as hell way more famous than Minah.

  3. Wait till netizenbuzz gets flooded by german fangirl recruits, all curious what's that a "minah" and what it tastes like...

  4. I didn't even know about this guy until after the world cup. National hero my ass. South Koreans seem to have the tendency to actually believe that their team is worth anything to talk about after the 2002 WC, which was highly controversial. They were incredibly lucky to get past their qualifying stages for the 2014 WC and it was partly because the other asian countries are shitty with football.
    It wouldn't make any difference who their coach is considering their current team is shit to the max. The only south korean footballer that is even worth mentioning is PJS.


  6. I think Minah can do so much better than a sport player.

    1. Sportsman is the term. I don't know who or what exactly is acceptable for you but them footballers get all the hottest girls. But yeah he's wayyyy below her in terms of looks. She can fuck better looking guys.

    2. Your comment is no better than what the Korean haters write. Just as her being an idol, there's no reason why he's a worse person just because he chases a ball for a living.

  7. he's on €60k a week at Leverkusen, that'll be more than Minah gets in a year. so in all fairness, that's hitting the jackpot

  8. It's Colombia, not ColUmbia.
    But seriously fan entitlement is too strong on this one

    1. Oops, good catch. Thanks! And yeah, maybe they're WAG-wannabes or jealous of Son Heung Min for getting paid AND getting the girl at a young age.

  9. This fucking level bullshit again. I don't give a fuck who the idols are dating but this stupid "above her level" bullshit makes me want to defend them.

  10. I bet if all idols went for celebrities, the Korean netizens will be bitching on how they discriminate athletes by dating only actors or other idols. What a bunch of hypocrites. They talk as if Son Heung Min is a player worth billions who plays for the German champions. No. He's just an average striker who plays for a 3rd placed team. Calm the fuck down. Most of you probably never heard of him until reports that Minah was dating him.

  11. I'm happy Minah's dating. What's with these "levels"??? I've always seen them when idols start to date and I've never understood it.
