Moon Gye-rin, who calls herself a radical feminist, posted in her online blog about two weeks ago a commentary on a relationship she had with a man whom she says abused her verbally and physically. Although her original article was unsigned, she responded to comments left on her blog seeking her identity by posting her name. She said her romantic partner was Han Yun-hyung, who is a former media commentator with a liberal bent and still a widely followed poster on social media. The dark story has had a ripple effect, inspiring many victims and assailants involved in relationship violence to share their stories. Moon said the relationship with Han began in 2008 and lasted about four years. She said he was verbally abusive when upset, and even though he routinely apologized for his actions the next day, he continued to get irritated when he drank or when the baseball team he followed lost a game. She said he had struck her, and quoted him as frequently saying, "You act to instigate me to hit you. It"s your fault that I became so angry". Noting that he had grown up in a household where he witnessed domestic violence, she said he often was ashamed when he was emotionally stable. But Moon also admitted that she didn"t want to end the relationship, and said that at the time not losing him was more important to her than not being hit.

The rap competition show "Show Me The Money" is getting more and more popular by the episode. The show began to make it into the mainstream last season, and this season looks like it"s going to get even bigger.
"Nielsen Korea" just announced the TV ratings for July 3, and "Show Me The Money 4"s 2nd episode had an average of 1.9% ratings and a peak of 2.1% ratings. The viewer ratings are the combined average of views on cable TV, Wesung, and IPTV. Note that "SMTM" airs on cable channel Mnet, so these are more than solid ratings, especially since rap and hip hop are typically a niche market.
The upcoming July 4 episode of tvN’s “Oh My Ghostess” will feature Park Bo Young’s character Na Bong Sun make a complete transformation.
Her character was revealed to be extremely timid and shy as she continued to apologize throughout the first episode. Despite her feeble nature, she works hard in hopes of becoming a chef.
However, her character changes when a lusty virgin ghost portrayed by Kim Seul Gi enters her body as we will see in the second episode. Apparently, the maiden ghost is able to do so because Na Bong Sun is special and can see ghosts.
