Citizens angered at Park Geun Hye's last attempt to drag out the impeachment trial

The Constitutional Court has held 14 sessions since December 9th when the National Assembly voted to impeach Park Geun Hye.  Throughout the months, Park Geun Hye's side has done all it can to drag out the proceedings.  As a last resort, they have again asked the Constitutional Court to postpone the final hearing to March 2-3 saying that they need more time to prepare their final statements and to decide whether Park Geun Hye will appear at the hearing.  Their chances of stalling this time around are slim as the court dismissed their requests and asked them to submit their final statements by Thursday.

Yonhap News via Naver: President's side "post-pone the final impeachment trial until March 2~3"

1. [+26,198, -482] They're just doing all that they can now huh.. can't help it.  Let's hurry and impeach her already and put her behind bars..

2. [+24,889, -415] Oh stop it.  You coward~~ you've already delayed it long enough, haven't you??

3. [+24,442, -356] What have they been doing all this time that they want to delay it again?  How much longer do we have to take your grumbling?

4. [+22,292, -338] Is this a criminal trial?  We're deciding whether she is qualified to still be the present so why do we keep arguing back and forth about whether she's committed a crime or not?  Do that separately!  It's obvious that she is not qualified to be the president so why are we dragging it out like this?
> [+301, -5] At the same time the President's side announced their statements, some celebrities I've never even seen or heard of kept the #1 spot on the real-time searches..;;; Is Naver a part of the Blue House...
> [+280, -3] Refreshing ㅋ It's not even a criminal trial so what's this ㅋ
> [+237, -4] All of the citizens want her to step down but she still wants to be the president ㅡ ㅡ Crazy bitch

5. [+17,446, -302] Screw off, stop trying to hide behind a smoke screen

6. [+5656, -101] Looks like these losers are trying to get their pay for March too.

7. [+5557, -92] They're really planning on dragging it out until the end... if they're confident, why would they need that?

8. [+5501, -93] No way.  We must condemn her with the 8 members.  If they push it until March, it'll be after Judge Lee Jung Mi's retirement. I think that's what they're aiming for.
(t/n: Lee Jung Mi's six-year term ends on March 13.  At least seven judges of the nine-member panel are required to take part in the ruling and at least six of them need to support the impeachment.  If one of the seven judges is unable to take part, the impeachment ruling will be indefinitely suspended.  If the court were to appoint new judges at this point, the ruling is expected to be delayed.)

Customers who speak to service workers informally?

Customer A: Excuse me
Waiter: Yes?
Customer A: Water

Customer B: There's this thing... don't you think it's better to address restaurant workers politely?
Customer A: How?
Customer B: "Please give me water," like this.
Customer A: Why should I?  I'm a customer.

Customer A: Hey (to the waiter)! Beer.

Daum Cafe: I'm embarrassed when I'm at a restaurant with this type of person.jpg

- This is my mom and dadㅜㅜ They always speak informally to part-time workers it's very embarrassing..

- So true ㅋㅋ They can't even speak like that to those who are higher in status than themㅋㅋㅋ but they abuse their power on service workers

- I have a similar experience.  I was riding a taxi with this person and they were such an asshole to the driver so when I asked about it when we got off, they said that the driver's getting paid so what.. ugh.. that's not even the problem, the fact is they treated that person like dirtㅠ

- You can tell what kind of person someone is through how they act in those situations

- But there's some people who are just shy so they don't like to talk a lot and will just say 'Hey.. water..' with their cups raised, would that still be considered rude?
> Employees won't know for sure if that person is just shy so they could get mistaken for being rude too
> But there's a clear difference between someone disrespectfully saying "Hey! Water!" and "Hey.. water.."
> The words I hate the most is when they say "Miss! (t/n: ahgashi) Water"

- I work part-time and an old man wanted a new plate, he didn't say anything and all he did was tap his chopsticks on the plate and made a noise like 'ddaeng ddaeng ddaeng!'
> I've gone through something similar, I was bringing them food and I asked where I should put it and they didn't even acknowledge me and just tapped with their hands at the spot in front of themㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It made me feel like I was their dog, that bastard

- Ugh..... seriously... they think they're way above you or something

- Huh, there are actually people like that?? I've never seen anyone like that...
> If you've worked part-time at a restaurant, there are actually a lot

- I asked them, "How many people?" and the old guy said, "Ha! Ahgashi? Can't you count? Try to count! Then you'll find out how many of us there are!" He actually got mad at MEㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ the bastard

- A lot of elderly act like that.. from my experience

- This is just a problem with those people's characters

- That's why I always tell my family members if we're out somewhere to always use formal language with anyone... even if they're an elementary student or a middle school student, it's always formal language for me.  Why would you use informal language with someone you don't know;;  When I used to work in a service job, I would speak formally to kids too...

NJTW3's butterfly effect and Kyuhyun and Mino continue their struggle with quizzes

6. [+997, -35] Eun Jiwon kept telling Mino in the midst of things that it's okay if he gets something wrong and he'd check if he was okay.  He's a much more attentive guy than I thought ㅠㅠ

7. [+865, -31] The funniest part for me was when Eun Jiwon got shocked looking at Na PDㅋㅋㅋㅋ His face looked so surprised so I thought "What is it? What is it?" and it was Na PD's face ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+253, -22] What's up with people....criticizing Ahn Jaehyun for loving and respecting his wife?  Stuff that's deserving of hate is if someone isn't working hard or being diligent, right?  But he's someone who works hard and is diligent plus brings in a lot of laughs.... I really can't wrap my head around why people would hate on him for loving his wifeㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+519, -7] ㅋㅋ It was so cute but he only ate half of the ham ㅠ because he taught he didn't deserve to eat more than that ㅠㅠㅠ

4. [+1172, -19] ㅠI get nervous myself when Mino gets something wrongㅠㅠ I feel badㅠㅠㅠ At least thanks to the hyungs he's able to brush it off and work hard~~ it's because the hyungs are caring for the maknae~~~ㅎㅎ

1. [+1530, -26] Chief Kim deals with real problems we face in society but at the same time they do it in a way that's humorous so it naturally promotes awareness about those problems.  The script, acting, and characters are all good too~

2. [+1384, -58] Lee Sungmin's acting in Misaeng was the top... ㅎ

3. [+1366, -57] Actors need to act in order to develop themselves, more actors who have trained very hard need to come out like Nam Goongmin and Ra Miran.. Nam Goongmin, let's go for the daesang!

7. [+160, -4] Chief Kim is like a refreshing version of Misaeng!!  People need this kind of refreshing flow in a drama!!

9. [+134, -4] I bet that with the current troubled situation we're in right now and with the citizens' troubles rising, Chief Kim serves as a refreshing drama that gives strength and a bit of comfort to citizens.

10. [+144, -9] Chief~~~~~

What are ways to help improve self-esteem?

OP: I'm someone who has very low self-esteem.  Whenever something happens, I'll always feel like I did something wrong.  If someone doesn't take my calls, I'll feel like I must have done something bad.  If I've made a mistake, I'll feel like trash and pick at my own faults.  So I get nervous if I've drank a lot and not know exactly what I've done.

I went to a therapist and the doctor told me this, "Don't focus on what you might've done wrong after drinking, what you should think of is the reason you drank that much.  You should think of thoughts like, 'Ah, that day I wasn't feeling great so I drank a lot.'  By focusing on your own emotions, you won't blame yourself as much."

After I heard those words, I realized how much I've been focusing on other people and events around them instead of my own feelings.

It isn't easy to become confident in yourself, but I'm gradually working towards that goal!!

Daum Cafe: 'Let's share a way of thinking that helps improve self-esteem.'

- I read this post everyday:
"There are two ways to live life comfortably.  One is to not be afraid to say no.  You have to be able to say no to requests or favours if you don't want to do them.  Another is to not get hurt when someone has rejected you.  Your worth doesn't drop just because another person doesn't like you... especially the words, 'You're not pretty', 'You don't have any charms', you have to get over these things by thinking, 'OK, well that's your opinion." A lot of women struggle with this... I myself had a hard time with this, but if you think about it, it's not important for every single person to like you."

- Whenever I start to worry or think about if I've made a mistake.. I scream, "FUCK IT SO WHAT" in my head to stop those thoughts.  It's like thinking 'I've already done it, so what can I do?' but with more impact, "FUCK IT, SO WHAT".  It lifts a heavy load off my shoulders.

- If something doesn't work out for you or you're not really sure of something, just think "As expected, it's because I'm so freaking cute." We're all cuties

- I'm the main character of my life

- Always think of positive thoughts!

- Don't focus so much on social relationships

- I try to dress nicely and put on make-up when I go out

- I think of only good things, and if not I write my thoughts and feelings in a notebook to clear my mind.

- I live my life thinking I'M THE BEST SCREW YOU GUYS

- As a clinical psychologist, the most common concern I hear from people is that they have low self-esteem.  I want to say something.  There are people who believe it's their own fault that they have low self-esteem but it is almost entirely the fault of other people.  Instead of trying to change your own feelings, I think we need to fix how people treat each other.  We need to move away from a world where people judge others by excessive and cruel standards even when friends wield hurtful comments disguised as jokes.  You need to lead your own life and not live it by trying to measure up to other's standards.

Top 10 actors you'd like to see get popular this year

1. Seo Jihye

2. Seo Hyorim

3. Yoo Inyoung

4. Jang Heejin

5. Jo Eunji

6. Shim Jiho

7. Lee Kyuhan

8. Im Joohwan

9. Im Jigyu

10. Jo Hansun

Naver Post: 'Should be popular by now!' Top 10 actors you'd like to see hit it big this year

1. [+942, -66] What do you mean they should become popular?  All of the people on this list are people who've already hit it big

2. [+856, -19] Do they think it's easy to have reached the level these actors have already?????ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+806, -27] Haven't these actors pretty much become successful at this level?

4. [+734, -17] Jo Hansun has already hit it big, he's just slowed down now, he's not someone to be on a list like that

5. [+540, -50] Im Joohwan has a great mask out of the actors on this list so no need to worry about him, personally I'd like for Yoo Inyoung to be more popular

6. [+457, -23] They're already pretty popular

7. [+323, -11] They don't have a certain piece of work that made a big impact in one go.. once you've got a supporting actor image, it's hard to get rid of it. ㅜ

8. [+282, -13] Just because you're pretty or handsome doesn't mean you'll make it big, you need a certain individuality and charm

9. [+274, -15] For me I'd like for Jang Heejin to do well!!  She played Lee Sangyoon's wife on 'On The Way To The Airport' and it was a very complicated character but she played it super well that I could relate to her!  She left a deep impression on me but her voice tone has a certain fussiness so I feel like she'll play the side villain a lot..

10. [+238, -12] Hoping for Im Joohwan to do well!!

11. [+165, -5] More than becoming a top star, I hope they create an individual colour in acting~ feels like they'll do just that~ I'll support them~ ^^

12. [+147, -5] Life doesn't always turn out the way you want it to..
