Skip Beat!

I translated a chapter of Skip Beat! for a scanlation group last night and was kind of skeeved at the story. The girls get punished for showing any negative emotions, because they're supposed to make people love them. Supposedly this is for their careers, because as actors they need to have people love them, but this particular incident was not in a professional context, but was simply their boss deciding that they were not pleasing to him 100% of the time, so they had to be punished. Ew. This is how women are policed all the time IRL. It's not a cute plot for a manga. This is definitely one I won't start following myself, even if I continue translating it.
