Netizenbuzz is gone ??

  • Surprised it was around as long as it was.

    The owner and mods explicitly stated at times they deliberately chose negative articles because it brings in more readers compared to positive ones (though I don't see why they couldn't do both sides on threads/stories). The worst part was that NB was heavily responsible for fueling many witch hunts and idol scandals among ifans. It was literally the fox news of kpop sites.

  • PC,knetizen,pannatic,netizenkore .

    But idk . NB has that nostalgic feeling lul .

    I sometimes look at my comment from 2012 on NB for some research too .


    Or asianjunkies for quality content at least they are transparent at what they like or don't like .

    Knetizen is the most tame out of all of them

  • A tad sad. It was great seeing the actual Korean reactions translated as I still can't bothered to learn the language despite being a long time Kpop fan. An end of an era.

    It was never “actual Korean reaction”

  • lol I've never even heard of them, I think that's what makes up lots of the translated comments in scandals, only twice or three times have I ever seen netizens defending idols. They probably made the stuff we see in youtube videos. Honestly, they are stereotyping korean fans, because we literally only hear the negative stuff. I REALLY want to see positive stuff translated WAY more, I don't care if they have dislikes.


    Only translating the negative stuff is feeding xenophobia. I used to fall in the trap of thinking the majority or all of them act this way, but even seeing a few positive comments prove that it isn't true. (I bet most korean fans find the toxic ones really weird, like us international fans do)


    We aren't exactly angels either, some international fans act WAY worse than the korean fans we see. I'm pretty sure many of you have never SEEN positive comments by Korean fans, they're hard to come across these days.


    I mean I get that some fans complain she only translate negative aarticle.

    But at the end of the day that's what put the food on the table .

    YES! that's where she gets her COIN.


    oh wow that's fucking disgusting. good riddance. and you BET they'll be acting all sorry and posting negative comments from articles about Sulli, but trying to defend them. I thought they translated the negative comments to defend the idol, not attack them. Now, I get what you mean. If she really got a cease-and-desist letter, I'm honestly glad. Why and how did she get the letter, if you know?

  • uh that site kept all the bad ifans in one place where do you guys think they will go now?

    Reddit and Amino if they're not already on Twitter and IG

    Is he.....you know?
    Tumblr

    투모로우바이투게더 방탄
    레드벨벳엑소샤이니에이티즈

  • not really they are starting to translate negative articles about some idols

    I mean at some point off course they will . Are translation site only allowed to translate good positive article ?? .


    This is why I don't really get the backlash they got .


    Especially if it trending on the Korean site .

    I understand if they translated a non issue article with only tens of upvote on the top comments on the Korean site then fine.


    But what I don't understand is even on hot topic like 1k plus upvote on the Korean site comment there still people be like "why are u only translating negative article" off course they will , it's a hot topic even mainstream site will write report on it . Like akp,kboo,etc .

    iirc they actually admitted it on the site F.A.Q

  • that's the thing no all the articles she translated are trending

    she is starting to cherry pick and translate some articles with little engagement about certain idols. Not sure if they have new translators though that might be it. it's just that some of those articles she translated seemed to be made by antis, at least the comments weren't as bad but it's starting to happen lately.

  • The thing is though sites like NB and Pannchoa have been caught many times cherry picking comments or even mistranslating comments. Translating trending posts, especially ones are negative is one thing. But mistrnalsating and cherry picking comments doesn't help give a better 'insight' into reactions at all.
