    Thanks God! CSW shaved his mustache and beard FINALLY! I almost afraid that his mustache and beard would be there until the end of drama

    There are facts about entertainment world :

    1. In the program “reality show”, they still can determine the scenario
    2. There are a lot of reporters, paparazzi and rumors surround the artist
    3. If the artist can not handle the rumors, feel depress and desperate, sometimes they will take the shortcut by ending their life with suicide. It has already happened
    4. People always judge by cover and their judgement is very cruel
