Besides the fact that 90's/1st gen kpop idols worked hard and had talent, they actually ARE more charming and entertaining to watch because they show/have/act out a more natural and unique image compared to idols nowadays who only have 3 personalities to choose from.

No. 72862

I'm glad I'm not the only who feels that way then. I don't mean to turn this into critical or anything, but any idea as to why it became this way? It's not like the industry was any less exploitative in the 90s (in fact, it might have been moreso). If it really is as kpop critical says and it's because most trainees pay their way into groups nowadays, then I don't see how that would prevent them from at least having interesting stage presence/personalities.

No. 72885

this is a stab in the dark since i don't know anything about first-gen idols, but maybe it's because the media released of idols was a lot more controlled/there was less of it? I feel like idols have to keep up a fake/exaggerated persona a lot longer nowadays…
or maybe because back then there wasn't as much of an obvious "formula" for success?

No. 72946

>maybe because back then there wasn't as much of an obvious "formula" for success?

This. During the 90s kpop was taking a lot of inspiration from European and American popular music, the first boy band being formed around that era. The bands focused on a teen audience and slowly morphed into what we see today, the formula was shaped through trial and error. The more obvious the formula for success is, the more strict reinforcement it will get. Back then, the market was new so no one really knew what to do, so they looked at what was trendy in other countries.

I've started playing 17 and >>65349 you are absolutely right this is so easy ?? I hated UFO and its gimmick so I thought I would hate 17 too. And yes, it's still not fun having to risk everything to get the spirit I need at the right time but everything else is so easy that it's not really a problem. Kinda disappointing.

I tried to play Hidden Star in Four Seasons yesterday since I purchased it on Steam, got to the 5th stage and absolutely could not see shit behind all the flashing colors in the BGM.

Idk why people in the kcrit thread have such a hateboner for her. They sound like they are upset cause their favorite bp member isn't in the main spotlight cause they always start to hype up the other members after they finish accusing her of being a sex worker. I miss when people just had a bias but still liked the whole group.
Also Sooyoung from SNSD has always been very pretty to me idk y they kept calling her ugly and anorexic. Just wish she'd become more comfortable with her skin color cause her natural skin compliments her so well

Honestly that a good teen show, entertaining and well done. People trying to look for some deep message are obv dumbasses. It's 'realistic' but not normal. Euphoria is all the fucked up gossips/stories you heard about IRL in one highschool.
What annoys me is the extreme oversexualization of underage teens. Some scenes are too long and useless.

No. 72215

It's basically a what if? some guy showed up claiming to be Jesus and starts collecting an army of followers. Mix that with the refugee crisis, political issues, social media and the general modern world and it's really dope. The show keeps you guessing whether this guy is the real deal, a terrorist or something even worse.

The dude is very easy on the eyes and he's also great in his portrayal. His delivery is so charming, gentle and firm that you really understand why intelligent people would believe him. But underneath that there's also this uneasy layer which makes you wonder what he is.

needed some way to vent about this, and i always love reading about other people's raging hate boners for (insert x title here). this isn't limited to books alone - it can be a show, comic, webcomic, etc. as long as it has your blood boiling almost every time you see it and you can't begin to imagine how anyone could get into it.

i'll start us off: "a matter of life and death" (https://tapas.io/series/A-Matter-of-Life-and-Death) is kind of the brainless beauty of western BL. now, it didn't start off that way, but between the author deciding to start acting like a spoiled brat instead of taking responsibility for her growing fanbase during the past year, and the story itself taking an olympic nosedive into overwrought, melodramatic, needlessly vindictive (while somehow still failing to deliver all the emotional punches during actually appropriate scenes), everything-that-makes-BL-shit territory.

now, as a disclaimer, i will admit that i'm not a fan of BL in general. i've seen way too many works that portray stuff like rape, abuse, etc. way too voyeuristically for my comfort, and even in more lighthearted series it usually feels like the authors don't know how guys interact with other people, let alone how gay guys do it. it's just not for me. but for fuck's sake, even i can recognize that BL fans deserve better than this.

Why are we meant to care about how unethical it is for a government to try and forcefully rehabilitate violent criminals, even if they're only 15?

What's the other option? Stick them in jail and make them worse? ACO isn't posing a thought-provoking question.

No. 62198

The way I interpret it, the question is whether morality or immorality is inherent to humans and whether they’re capable of acquiring moral values as they mature. The ethics of forced rehabilitation are only a part of that.

I just finished Rebecca and I HATED it, good Lord what a waste of time. Rebecca is a classic gothic "suspense" novel. (I had originally been told this was a horror novel, but it's barely even suspense).

summary (including spoilers) and why I hated it:
Rebecca is about an unnamed woman who marries a recently widowed rich man. She goes to live with him and everyone is always talking about Rebecca (his recently dead wife who allegedly drowned). The servants and friends are all obsessed with Rebecca and keep talking to the protagonist about her, so naturally the protagonist compares herself to Rebecca. It turns out (shocker) that Maxim actually murdered Rebecca, because she had allegedly slept around and was shitty to him. When he tells this to the protagonist, she says "only one thing matters now, that he never loved Rebecca, he only loved me". Yes, after he told her he MURDERED his first wife, the only important thing is that he didn't love her? What the actual fuck? And how did she know he wasn't lying about all that? Anyways some suspicions about her death comes up and Maxim goes on trial, although her death was ruled a suicide. But even before Max was acquitted, he said he was happy he killed Rebecca. And then it turned out that Rebecca, right before she was murdered, had found out she was infertile and terminally ill, and that she WANTED Maxim to kill her. This upset Max/the protagonist because it meant "Rebecca had won". Then their mansion, Manderley, burned down at the end, though it never said who burnt it down. Why is this a classic? It's fucking god awful.

No. 72085

wasn't it mrs danvers who burned it down? that's how i've always interpreted it

I've liked it too! Quite a few really fun anime came out this winter, I'm glad to see something different this season.
That being said, was anyone else slightly weirded out by some scenes/imagery with Hanako-kun? I wish the series didn't have those slight sexual undertones, even if it was refreshing to see something more appealing to "female gaze".

No. 71923

men's fantasies condensed: dying and then receiving 40 horny anime virgins.

No. 71931

Nayrt but I feel exactly the same way about the sexual undertones. I knew nothing about the manga or the anime and really didn't expect those questionable parts in the opening. The thing is I would have been less weirded out by it if the characters didn't look so young. They are children to me so it was just a really weird 1st episode. It was super pretty but the animation was also really lacking (like that fight at the end ??). Don't think I'll continue.

No. 71966

For some reason a lot of kinnies love this manga, so that turned me off of it. The art style is nice tho.
