Admins pls feel free to combine it with the other newspaper article I posted 2 days ago if it should be.

Straits times Life section 20th March.



Sorry for the low quality. Taken with my phone

Lousy caption in my opinion. How are the costumes they are wearing now school uniforms?

That is a bad headline. I'd actually be pissed if I were them.

They obviously have no idea who/what SCANDAL is

Judging from what I can read, it sounds as if they are ripping on the band. It's pretty infuriating.

For a publication like ST SG, this article is not up to standard and not very accurate. Either the writer wanted to put a different (and incorrect) angle on it or something got lost in translation.

yea i admit this was a lousy article Delinquent this wasn't what i expected when i knew they would be appearing in today's newspaper. coming from one of the most reputable newspapers in Singapore i expected them to do a better job. i guess tabloids really do provide entertainment news better than "serious" newspapers in Singapore.

but still, it's pretty nice to see such a large photo of them on the newspaper, even if it's just to fill up the space.

thanks for the upload metalleo
I really like the photo (Haruna looks especially stunning lately), though the rest of the article is a disaster:
1. "Hanging on the high school girl look" - I don't think so.
2. "dance academy" - "academy"... srsly...?
3. "they gave up their studies" - They do not quit high school because of the band. Is every Japanese citizen, graduated from university? I don't think so...
+1. "no more oil clogged pimples, pigment, scars & marks"
I think I will never use the Straits Times as a source in my Wikipedia aricles...

article is quite lousy, shortcomings aplenty
There's only 2 'angles' in the whole thing - high school girls image & anime music.. There's nothing mentioned of their past trips to SG or recent developments.
Not even a mention of 'sponsor' Windows 8..
Maybe the author is a 'new bird', didnt do much research before writing the article

*proceeds to cut out the article (photo)

"past 20 years old but still wearing school uniforms to maintain their image."



just because he saw a picture of SCANDAL in school uniforms makes him think that they're still wearing them. and what's up with the "maintaining their image"?

what image are you talking about? I don't know what to say about the author. He should have at least done more research if he wasn't familiar with the band.
