Article: 'Abnormal Summit' Tyler, "in the USA, there's no such thing as permanent positions... we choose our jobs based on our interests"

1. [+648, -11] It's not related to the article but sometimes, Tyler's sayings are wonderful. He speaks in a language that's completely not related to his mother tongue but he's very logical and structural. His choice of vocabulary is very advanced. I envy him

2. [+396, -29] Guillaume was teary when he was talking. I wish they didn't cut him off

3. [+357, -16] How many people in our country actually choose a career based on our interest, though... It's even hard to find a job based on your degree major

4. [+56, -3] Tyler jjang jjang. If Tyler hosts a 1-hour show by himself, I'd definitely watch that. Don't look down at Guillaume, why are they so desperate to ignore him? And why isn't Sujan getting screen time?

5. [+41, -1] Tyler is charming. He can speak Korean, French, Chinese, and many other languages fluently. His unlimited knowledge makes me surprised. Today's episode also showed his great drawing skills. His vocabulary is advanced and he has logic. He's always curious and he works hard, but I also think he's talented

6. [+36, -1] Tyler reminds me of Kevin's cousin in Home Alone. The kid with red glasses and who spills Coke ㅋㅋ

7. [+31, -1] Yeah right. Even though he's saying that, we already know that Americans also have job preferences and their race plays a role on their job

8. [+28, -6] This is why there's a big gap between rich and poor in the US

9. [+21, -5] On Abnormal Summit, Tyler said that permanent positions don't exist. This is a different story to us because it's not the US. USA has the key currency of worldwide economy and their military is the biggest in the world. They even control the worldwide resources. It's a lie to be objective about USA and another country. USA also has a low birth rate but they selectively pick immigrants and trash the rest. Tyler is sugarcoating it too much

10. [+20, -4] I get that Tyler doesn't want to talk negatively about his country but he always talks as if USA is some kind of a paradise ㅋㅋ USA is severe with its gap between rich and poor, there are shootings because of racism, and you get fired right away if you don't do well with your part-time job. So many people in the US are getting by just with on-call. USA also looks down at labor workers and call them 'red neck' ㅋㅋ What is Tyler saying ㅋㅋ

11. [+17, -6] I don't think it's true that they don't have permanent position system. The companies have much more power when it comes to firing the workers. In the US, shootings happen and it's not just by thieves, a big part of it is because the workers are furious with their companies firing them... The problem is that Korean government is trying to copy this

12. [+12, -4] I don't like Tyler because he always thinks he's right. And when someone expresses a negative opinion on USA, he gets mad and refutes, even if the person is saying the truth. It's getting severe

13. [+8, -1] Tyler's double standards are too much. He makes all sorts of generalizations when he talks about other countries, especially Korea. But when someone talks about the US, he growls and snaps, "have you lived in the US, don't generalize". Honestly, I didn't understand why he got mad when they were talking about America's wealth flaunting. Whether USA has the culture or not, it's understandable that people could think like that because of American pop, the media, and hip-hop. But he refused to acknowledge that. He looks logical and smart but at the same time, his points are nonsense and he seems like a loser

Article: Guillaume, "in Germany, even a convenience store is erotic"... Alberto, "Germany is a top country in terms of porn"

1. [+129, -6] I thought Japan was a top country for that ㅋㅋ

2. [+107, -4] For Europe, Germany and Czech are top porn countries. But German women aren't pretty

3. [+95, -8] In Europe, Germany is the cleanest place. Italy is the country I never want to visit again

4. [+14, -8] Beenzino you jerk, you're lucky ㅠㅠ

5. [+5, -0] Germany is good at everything ㅋㅋ


Article: 'Abnormal Summit' Alberto, "power blogger, it's the readers' responsibility to determine the truth of the information"

1. [+105, -14] It could be the readers' responsibility but shouldn't the blogger also have to put truth to it? A blogger says a restaurant is good when it's bad, and the readers have to determine the truth? A power blogger has many followers, the truth they speak must be valued

2. [+91, -13] With the fact that a power blogger gets financial advances, I say that a power blogger must be responsible with their posts. It's too selfish to blame the readers only. "The right to lie"? So is it OK if they give out false information? No way! It'll be a mess

3. [+76, -7] But I don't agree that they can lie because they're getting money for it... I respect freedom of speech but not spreading false information. Especially if it's a power blogger

4. [+72, -13] Westerners are so different from us... I was surprised when they said, "they have the right to lie"

5. [+57, -13] "The right to lie".... I feel bitter


Article: Zhang Yuan mentions China's soccer competence, "it's getting better"

Source: TV Report via Naver

1. [+75, -2] That's honestly your opinion. China's soccer is still...

2. [+66, -10] I like Zhang Yuan but his Sinocentrism gives me goosebumps ㅋㅋ I wanted to shut him up when they talked about papyrus before

3. [+55, -4] Yuan-ah, that's not the soccer you're talking about. If it's by your saying, then Korea started playing soccer with an animal skull since the Stone Age. You call it soccer if the modern rules apply to it
