Aw I love this. I always loved Ellin the most out of Crayon Pop. Its good to see not only a Korean girl, but a kpop idol be so frank and eager to learn about sex toys and stuff since thats still so taboo over there.

I still think Rose resembles her a lot and it makes me miss her and wish she would come back to the industry, but seeing her instagram and videos it looks like shes probably happy just living her best free life.

Samefag to say I know its not critical or a nitpick or anything, so my apologies for posting it here. But it could open up discussion of how shes one of the only female idols thus far to actually be perfectly fine with making videos like this(and even acknowledging sex and masturbation in general), and other idols should really follow suit.

NTA but you clearly have no idea what the meaning of "sex positivity" actually is. That term originally applied to women who worked in the sex industry and refused to acknowledge the repercussions of doing so. Sex and masturbation are healthy and normal, and someone learning about those things in an uptight culture thats only real references to sex are through rape, prostitution, smuggled porn and pedophilia is absolutely a normal appropriate thing. If you're one of those people that believes "All PIV sex is raep uWu" it sounds like you're the one who belongs on tumblr.

Because all of them are now grown ass women in their twenties, and they have admitted that the kindergarden concept was growing old, even for them. They're massively successful for kpop standards, but they're definitely reached their peak and it's all downhill from here. JYP has already debuted a younger, fresher crop of teens for uncle fans to drool over, so might as well change concept and try to milk the fans that have been screeching for girl crush Twice since the early days.

I'm surprised he hasn't gotten his cheekbones shaved down or gotten fat injections in his face because that's what most really skinny idols do (including the other nct members)

The artist himself doesn’t even consider it plagiarism so this milk is boring. It’s an homage according to them. Personally, I don’t really see it except for the long table with the white table cloth? But long tables and white table cloths are pretty fucking common i.e. pic related

As for the Young Forever summer camp fire photo…I can see the similarities but I also have pictures of myself standing around campfires in shorts waving fiery sticks as a kid.

The third photo of them walking in a line…i don’t see it. Horizontal line with an equal divide between is just a common photography trick for a good photo imo but okay.
I think it’s pretty weak. Definitely not plagiarism, even the photographer says so.

From the photographer:
>An article released Monday 25.02 in the Korean newspaper Hankyore incorrectly stated that I was accusing the K-Pop band BTS of plagiarism. I discovered BTS album “The Most Beautiful Moment of Life: Young Forever” long after it was published, and I felt a common inspiration with my past
series of photographs ‘Summer Camp.’
>In an interview with a journalist from Hankyore about my current exhibition in Seoul, I answered about this feeling and made absolutely clear that I was considering a possible inspiration from my work as a tribute, and certainly not as plagiarism or copyright infringement.
>I love BTS, this album is beautiful, I feel honored to know that 40 years later, my photographs still inspire other artists. Love.

Curious to see how this concept change will happen because JYP can't really do the kind of "girl crush" that 2ne1/4minute/Blackpink/Gidle have done. Even Itzy sounded kinda childish and immature.

Wonder Girls and Miss A were more on the "mature women" side so maybe Twice will go in that direction, which would be a nice change because those groups had good songs and concepts.

Samefag here. This has also become one of the few online places to openly bash on anything K-pop related without fans rrreeeeeeeing about how butthurt they feel about such content. There used to be a popular bashing thread on OneHallyu but that was shut down after people complained about it being “too negative” or whatever.

No. 27315

Even in this extended interview in which they are more comfortable, Blackpink members come off as not sharing their genuine personalities or just lacking personality/ability to express it. If they could assert a few opinions or be a little daring in some things they say, they would draw more interest.

I also feel like Jennie is not super happy with Rose but suppresses it throughout this interview based on how she looks at her and reacts to what she says, versus when, say, Lisa is talking, but maybe it's just me.

Loona look botched irl but what's even worse is the difference between their official promo pictures vs videos or photos from someone else. Blockberry must spend more on a photoshop team than anything else. I've seen people post their promo pictures in the more positive idol threads before talking about how cute they are, but Loona look nothing like those photos. Loona and their fans are the worst in kpop for me. They have just about everything this thread talks about. They're incredibly skinny, overhyped talent, botched surgeries, dumb obsessive fans, getting praised for being uwu equality queens for doing nothing, the company panders hard to make sure they get international recognition. It's amazing that they only come up for a couple of the worst stan tweets or for occasional mentioned of the busted Tomochin
>>27166
the pattern I noticed with Twice that stood out for me was that title tracks about love have to either be about having a crush on a boy, wanting to be in a relationship but not being in one yet, or about just starting one. Even when it's not as pedobaity, it really feels like they're targeted to make sure their fans definitely don't think the members are really dating and fans can project that it's them who the girls want to date

Anyway does anyone find it surprising how Seulgi’s praised for her looks by Korean fans? She has features that aren’t considered conventionally attractive by Korean standards (wide face with big jaw, small monolid eyes, slightly hooked nose) yet I don’t typically see her put in the realm of JooE, Umji, Hwasa and so on. I would suggest that it’s because she’s from a bigger company, but Wendy’s looks get shit on all of the time even though I feel like Wendy’s new face falls in line with conventional Korean beauty standards more.

Seulgi is praised because she has old-fashioned beautiful Korean features. Small mouth with a specific curved shape, fairly pale skin, pointed nose with a specific type of bridge and short philtrum, 'wise' and 'warm' curved monolids and a mysterious relatively slim face. Other idols like this are Yeji from ITZY, Jisoo from BP, Jihyun from 4minute and Dahyun from TWICE.

Ofc there are Koreans who think she is lame and ugly for not being a TWICE member or gangnam unnie but still.

I wish we would discuss the reason why kpop is so hipnotizing
My first kpop song/video was SNSD's Gee, I was like 12 when I first watched it and it was so groundbreaking for me, because I was a girl who liked cute things and my country is really all about sex, I basically craved for cute. I used to be a weeaboo before being a kpopfag, for me, kpop was like real life anime lmao. Needless to say I also has serious self-esteem issues because I didn't look like Yoona or whatever. Nowadays I think they all just loom really botched, so I don't have any problems of that nature
However, I can't stop listening to the songs or watching the videos. I don't understand, why is it like that with kpop? It's a bunch of malnourished kids with no talent and mutilated faces, so why is it so fascinating?

I randomly found out about kpop by watching some variety show or something and I had no idea what was going on.
I wanted to know who these people were so that's how it started. I wasn't in a good place at that time so the colorful music videos, the upbeat songs and the variety shows were a really good distraction to me. I never really stanned a group though.
But I think many people get so absorbed into the kpop world because of similar reasons. (I'm not talking about the crazy kids who think they can marry their oppa one day)

My story is basically same as yours anon.

I was around 14 when I discovered K-pop (also SNSD's Gee lol) and I couldn't really relate to my country's pop songs since most of them were super erotic, based around sex, lust, partying etc.
I was a weeb and I also knew about AKB48, but their songs felt too childish (also creepy pedo factor) while SNSD's Gee was cute but also ""mature"" enough for a 14 year old. Even the sexy k-pop concepts that I discovered later didn't feel that erotic, at least not compared to western pop.

I never became a group stan either, would just have favorite songs instead. When I got out of high school, my interest in k-pop mostly died as all new songs and groups started to feel stale and not original at all.

(don't get me wrong, nowadays I don't think western pop is worse than k-pop, but when I was still a tween I couldn't get into it as it felt too sexual)

There’s an illusion of closeness that it cultivates. They give you sense that they could be your friend, in a way.

Like, watching someone you think is funny/cute/whatever sit around and joke and eat with their friends, in a similar way that you might gives a sense of belonging. Other types of music, like western pop music, feels cold and impersonal in comparison. Kpop is also very, very aware of their audience and they pander and push that I’m your friend/boyfriend/girlfriend narrative at every turn. It’s like, “maybe I can be part of something instead of being an extremely depressed and isolated 13 year old in a very unfortunate situation.”

Fandoms play a very important role in this. Why do you think they give their fans cutesy names? Once again, to foster closeness between fans and idols, fans and other fans, fans and the outside world. One thing that every person has in common is loneliness and the need to be part of something.

I haven’t touched on cultural things within Korea and other stuff but in short, it’s deliberate psychological manipulation.

I was a weeb for j-pop, rather than anime, but like a lot of people I didnt like the wota-pandering direction j-pop took and, imo, the quality of the music declined a lot and became formulaic. Obviously I knew of BoA and liked some of her songs.

With Western music I liked Motown, the 90s R&B girlgroups like SWV, Brownstone and Jade, tATu, and the groups from my country like Sugababes and the 411. I didn't have a problem with hypersexual artists like tATu, Xtina or Vanity 6 but stuff coming out like the Disney tween acts, Danity Kane, Little Mix and Fifth Harmony really overtly turned me off. The music, vocals and visuals didnt really appeal to me and it just felt too pick me, male-centred bimbo and vapid without having an edge.

The first k-pop I was exposed to (like The Grace and Rain) I didn't think was very good. I really got into k-pop though 2NE1 who for the first three years had a distinct vibe, sound and look compared with Western and Japanese music. It was really cool to me that aside from Dara none of them were conventionally pretty, they were more fierce and it was in sync with their sound, or at least it was at first until they turned into proto-Blackpink…

Then I found KARA, T-ARA, (f)x, After School, 4minute and SISTAR. I liked the sonic and aesthetic diversity on offer. The music was extremely catchy without being smothered in layers of excessive vocals and had a lot of elements like modulations I found appealing that have disappeared from Western pop. And a lot of songs like Gee, WANNA, Muzik and A went pretty hard for pop songs (I like hard rock and hardcore rap).

I was never ever a fan of any boy group (so much warbling and the song structure does not appeal) or ballad group though. Nor did I watch the reality or variety shows or whatever. I remember my friend crying their eyes out about Sunny killing a chicken and I didn't understand why she was on such a show. That kinda turned me off the 'fan' side.

Got into K-pop as an Asian tween in a Western country. There’s not a whole lot of representation of Asians as attractive entertainers in most media outside of Asian countries. K-pop’s filled with them so I think that was one reason that caught my attention.

Another one would have to do with the images idols themselves put on. You often see them talk about how hard they work/how much time they spend to perform, how much they care about their fans, and how relatively “clean” their images compared to other countries’ entertainers—even though it’s really just all a farce/act to get your money.

Korean male idols also are styled to resemble anime characters. I was already a weeb for some time and the transition to getting interested in K-pop was somewhat smooth in that sense. Not really into K-pop anymore aside from the milky content it can produce but those are my reasons as to why K-pop manages to appeal to certain people.

No. 27512

Same for me. There aren’t any Asian females in the entertainment industry at all, so you’re stuck with Kpop. It’s why BTS was able to snag all those Asian act records in the west because there’s nobody else in the ring. Them and the rest of kpop really got lucky 2015-2016

Good point.

And lets be real it was because she forgot her gender and the men above her put her in her place, because its fucking Korea. She really thought she was the next BoA and the Korean Robin Antin.

Because in her mind, seniority trumps gender, but like I said Im pretty sure she got put in her place because of that. She got too big for her britches so to speak. She forgot that the hierarchy ladder places men at the top. Though she does remind me a lot of those females that work in the companies or are married to CEOs and whatnot that prey on young boy group members. I wouldnt be shocked if something comes out like that in the future regarding her. She has that kind of personality and its creepy.

So there's a high chance they're sasaengs, then. Makes sense the staff (who are probably also Chinese, since WayV only promote in China) would be guarding WayV against them. This isn't about race, this is about creepy fans being punished for pushing the line too far.

Kaeun having to see Kahi on Produce 48 again during that ep where Kahi was mentoring was so fucking awkward. I don't think they really saw another much except during a reunion concert or performance since Kahi had left AS prior to Kaeun's arrival but couldn't help but feel bad for Kaeun when she was barely allowed to have lines or presence in the group before they took their long hiatus (although she was more prominently featured on their Japanese releases) and she had to come face to face with Kahi, who'd desperately tried to push herself as the previous center of the group.

My speculation is that they try to make the nose tips look thinner and smaller and have to cut up the nostrils to do that. However, some surgeons end up doing a poor job leaving idols with two prominent black holes for nostrils (like Ratmon, Nayeon, that one chick from APink). I’m not plastic surgery expert though so feel free to correct me.

>>27572
Damn, have not heard of this case before but fuck that CEO and his wife. Hope the member can get on with their lives outside of the industry.

Now that I’ve thought more about it, being an idol/trainee really comes with so much risk and such little chance at reward. Imagine spending your teens and twenties just focused on training without the guarunteed chance of debuting. Putting all of that time practicing to the bone and dealing with industry predators for years and you might not even ever become a star. Then you’re in your late twenties with few transferrable skills along with debt weighing down on you. No wonder you hear reports of some trainees who failed to debut committing suicide.

Twice's MVs have always looked cheap (I think it worked for TT and Knock Knock though) because they're 99% green-screen and terrible zooming in and out. I guess if your cashcow doesn't need to do much to make money, might as well skimp out on the music videos.

You can really tell their new stylist is Blackpink's old one, though, with those outfits seemingly off the rack and being uncoordinated. Their old outfits were hit or miss, but it was cool having outfits specifically made for them that had elements and patterns that looked cohesive as a whole.

She's pretty low key and private so there's not much to find out about her. Even when 2ne1 had their own show she was the most private one, not even showing her room and all.
The only thing that makes her cringey is the fake gangsta, badass bitch act she puts on despite her middle class upbringing (dad a professor, studying abroad in various countries,..)

>There were also underage girls put into sex trade, they were basically considered a runaway. Once they learned that there were nowhere they could go back to, they were promised that they'd be debuted as celebrities to lure them. They'd be used as prostitutes and be thrown away. There was also a priest who was looking over those runaway teenagers. 2 of those girls came out of it, one was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, the other became pregnant and through repeated abortions, her uterus was removed. Those kids were basically supplied to those MDs and getting pimped-out. They said they'd receive more money than normal prostitutes

Didn’t realize until now that Irene turned 28 a month ago. Imagine being at an age where people are settling into adulthood and you’re still spending your life performing children songs. She seems tired of the idol life and wouldn’t surprise me at all if she leaves once her contract ends, although the backlash from doing that might force her to renew.

Samefagging but wanted to clarify that there’s nothing wrong with making music for children if that’s what you actually wanna do. The thing is that Irene’s life is basically dicatated by her public image/demands set by her contract so she’s spending much of her time doing something she doesn’t really seem to like. Not to mention that she’s a grown woman in her late twenties and is still treated like a pre-teen in regards to dating someone openly.

Hyoyeon maybe? She had quite a fanbase considering her entire appeal was self deprecation because she was ~le visual hole~ and used it as comedy. Her personality and dance talent really pushed her into popularity for a bit. But honestly, her being in SNSD was what really did it. A group where no girls fit the Korean beauty standard typically do not make it. I remember WASSUP and EVOL as two examples of that. WASSUP was DESTROYED on Korean sites for being "ugly and ghetto", and then Hello Veuns started styling themselves just like them and performing the EXACT same music and twerking and all that shit and Korea ate it up. So looks definitely matter.

Really disgusting and sad. This and the group chats really remind you how sick in the head so many people can be.

Linking for anons who aren't aware. A woman was friends with these stars for 3-4 years before she was gang raped (and filmed) while unconscious and drunk. She woke up naked to these douchebags laughing at her. After, the men pretended like nothing had happened, basically gaslighting her. She wasn't the only victim, unfortunately.

SJ was meant to be a rotational group, they could let a chubby or ugly guy debut for 2-3 years and move on to variety, but then were stuck with them when it became a permanent group. SJ get away with a lot because SM doesn't really care or invest into them, they make enough money through tours to keep themselves afloat so SM just accepts that. They're a group made up of the TVXQ rejects, after all. It's not even just a male idol thing, because a TVXQ or Shinee member wouldn't be allowed to get fat. Super Junior are such a weird group because it took them like 4 years to get a hit song but they were one of the earliest groups to have massive overseas followings

Zico is such a sleazebag. Some other Block B members are as well. If any female idol did even half of the controversial shit he’s done, she wouldn’t have a career anymore.

Seriously. fans should also realize that the vague pseudo-feminist girl crush concepts as well as the “woke” songs that BTS and Stray Kidz like to parade around are probably produced entirely by money-hungry, power-tripping male predators at the end of the day. All of that money spent on physical merchandise and ticket sales go towards funding these getaways that enable them to commit more of these atrocities.

https://chienna.wordpress.com/2012/02/25/summary-block-bs-thai-scandal/

"What disturbed most viewers and fans though was Block B’s somewhat insouciant attitude towards victims of the Thailand floods. When this topic was raised, the leader Zico said: ‘With this monetary aid, we hope that you will feel better. The only thing we have is money.’ However, when he was asked how much money he had, he replied: ‘About 7000 won‘, causing the other members to erupt in laughter. 7000 won is equivalent to around US $6."

Okay, sage cause here comes some unpopular opinions (at least in this thread)

>Momo is the cutest looking one in TWICE


I don't know why people talk so much shit about her looks? She doesn't even look botched to me, at all.
Granted, Tzuyu is the prettiest one (and has the best body as well), but Momo is very cute imo. I especially like her eyes and smile, and she looked the best in the short black hair (with volume) and yellow dress for the LALA Land scene, pic related. I guess because she doesn't look pedobait, and more like her age.
But she can't sing for fucking shit though, she should have only some spoken adlibs and catchphrases in each song and focus on dancing only lmao

>Jeongyeon looks better with longer hair


I mean, sorta. I think she looks the best with shoulder lenght hair (also pic related), but I am glad to see her in longer hair and I really don't think she looks as bad as some anons are making it to be.
And although she's not looking the absolutely best, it's still miles better than the coconut hairstyle she sported sometimes to fit the whole "JY oppa uWu she groped every girl in twice lezbian qween!", that she also seemed to hate. So at least I believe she'll be more comfortable with this longer hair.

As for the Fancy song itself… >>27628

Some anons are saying it's the same TWICE formula but with black dresses. I agree and disagree at the same time?

I mean, they are basically the same, making cutesy faces and singing high pitched (Except maybe JY, Mina and Jihyo?), but you can't say the song it the same "recycled Ooh-Ah" cutesy style. It's not super duper mature, but it's better than their usual stuff.
With a few tweeks and lowering the vocals, this could be sold as a boy group song, and "Yes or Yes" couldn't. The sound of the song itself is just too childish.
So yeah, a bit of column A and a bit of column B. I like this better than What is Love, Yes or Yes, Dance the Night Away and any of their japanese songs, that are always shit.

Sorry about the long ass post.

momo is one of the most pedobait in twice what are you high on have you not seen her "sexy stripper on stage kawaai oppa aegyo offstage" persona or what bro

her undereyes are filled with aegyo sal fillers and it is disgusting + during debut she had the most botched face because of fillers

I was giving my opinion on the song, as well. Also, so many comments about "this girl looks like shit with this hair", I guess I could say the opposite as well? I don't believe it's only critical when you nitpick an idol to death, people can be more nuanced.

>>27782

It's the idol industry. Both Sana and Momo are masters of doing it because I truly believe Japan is the best at making pedobait idols. They truly are at home doing this kind of stuff, and would also explain why japanese idols are usually popular despite Japan's and Korea's tension.

TWICE's "Fancy" is the same shit as usual except slightly more "nightclub" looking as opposed to their regular hoe disco pant shorts and bright crop tops. The choreography is the same trash and I particularly hate that weird "crazy legs" plie knee thing they do during the chorus that they've definitely done before in another song (Dance the Night Away I think).

Another thing is that they're always using childish voice clips in the chorus, like I think I specifically heard "Love!" in the chorus of Fancy which is basically the same as the girls shouting "What is love!" in What Is Love. It sounds like a bunch of school children which is really fucking creepy for a song with nine grown women wearing barely anything, pandering to a bunch of pedophiles–sorry, I mean "uncle fans" kek.

So what I'm trying to say is that this was marketed this as a "sexy" image that was supposedly "different" when it's basically just the same thing as usual. Childish song, schoolchildren (aka TWICE's adult members trying to sound like children) yelling in the chorus (for the pedos), generally skimpy outfits, and an awkward choreography, which is nothing like an actual sexy choreo like "Something" by Girls Day.

I'm already calling it that the stages are literally going to look the same as their previous comebacks.

Yes, this is true. But it's also worth mentioning that albeit most of their fan are teenage girls, the ones putting real money on TWICE's table are japanese dudes with money and otaku mentalities, like they choose one waifu (usually a japanese one because, hey - it fits their fantasies better because they can communicate and bond over Japan and stuff) just as if they were anime character and drop a lot of money. Yes, there is TWICE gatcha machines in Japan that a lot of teenagers like, but that doesn't make enough money, so they're no the main target audience.

The only way I would say an idol has recently brought light to some issue would be jonghyun his suicide brought to light the issue of idol's mental health and depression/suicide in korea, but I don't know if the effects were long-lasting and obviously this burning sun scandal has exposed more of the dark side of idol life.

the people making this MeToo movement happen in korea are the women getting sick of their standing in life and the shit they put up with, not a bunch of idols making pop music for teen girls.

sjw kpop twitter (which is almost the entirety of kpop stan twitter) needs to chill. kpop's practices are the exact opposite of any sjw standpoint. the possibility of kpop companies taking a trans trainee knowingly is literally 0. there might be closeted lgb idols, yes, but they are most likely a very tiny percentage. the possibility of at least two members from the same group being gay, dating and making a tumblr style comeout is extremely low.

there's been an openly trans singer in Korea since the early 2000s and it's been circling rumour mill articles for years that two girl group members have male ID registration numbers (I don't know the right term). There was the group Lady and another too I'm sure. Trans idols have been in Korea since the early/mid 00s, if stans were really interested then there's people for them to stan. They don't need to project onto regular idols if it's something they really believe

>which is almost the entirety of kpop stan twitter

that's a reach, they're just an intersection of the two most loud circlejerky groups on the internet right now.

SJWs in general tend to be hypocritical and are currently the loudest group on kpop twitter.

Any kpop stan that disagrees with their SJW agenda gets lynched, like just say something like "maybe (insert popular male idol name) is not gay" and they would try to get you suspended for heteronormative oppression.

Some of you are really new to kpop and it shows. Not trying to be elitist but it's not hard to find summaries on past scandals and to gauge the 1st and 2nd generation of kpop's groups and their impacts.

Whenever I see a BLINK trying to say how incredibly successful and revolutionary BP is, I automatically know that they are either A) aware of 2NE1's impact and lying to themselves or B) a new 3rd gen fan and know nothing of the 2NE1's impact in the 2nd gen. I'm sure former fans of SNSD, TVXQ, and BB (unfortunately) feel the same.

You don't even have to listen to groups like SNSD, 2NE1, TVXQ and maybe a few other older groups to know that their songs were largely influential in not only the kpop scene but also among the GP. Youtube views don't mean shit. Album sales don't mean shit. Streaming at this point doesn't mean shit either. NCT is a fucking joke, sorry to all of you NCT dweebs in here that have no respect for yourselves. BP's 3 year career is still a failure compared to 2NE1's debut album. Red Velvet is forgettable, even compared to f(x) the group that already had one foot in the grave at debut, and still managed to be more popular than RV when SM decided to give them a chance.

Twice I'm not going to speak on since they're actually popular among the general public but almost in the same way as SNSD where Hyoyeon and Sooyoung were regarded as the ugly ones–replace them with Jungyeon and Jihyo or Chaeyoung. They're basically SNSD if SNSD never left Gee and Oh! era and also if SNSD didn't have a single decent vocalist.

Anyway, these are just my thoughts. I'm not even a 3rd generation fan of any group after my kpop phase died but you all are wasting your time being a fan of any of these groups. They will all inevitably get fucked over by their companies, go one-by-one to the military if they're male, or put out a shitty song which you'll be forced to 'like' or else you'll be cast out of the 'fandom' if you voice any other opinion than blind ignorance.

They aren't idiots, this shit is done on purpose. Same with this stuff involving Sulli and Hara. It's all messaging to a certain 'subset' of fans and people within the industry. The woke types won't understand why 'fierce queens' just drop this creepy shit all of a sudden nor will they oppose it, even if they know of it.

One of the Kill This Love photocards is a Happy Birthday card with Jennie as a child in a strappy top with messy hair. The other happy birthday cards are regular standardized glamour shots of the other three as adults. Considering the theme of the song and the bruise photoshoot cards alongside them - that's a weird theme to be going with…

When I first started being into kpop, many years ago like..2010-2015 basically, people really seemed to think kpop was like China, in that they would just copy what other other countries were doing and what was trendy and whatnot. And so thats why you'd get a weird mix of concepts, styles of both clothing and music and stuff like that that didnt seem to be cohesive. I do still think that IS a thing. I think they do in essence live inside their own culture bubble and are ignorant to symbolism and what things mean, hence their absolute refusal to understand why cultural appropriation is such a big deal. But there is definitely a part of the industry that has contacts with many people in other cultures, particularly Western. And they know what they're doing. And any adult male that is half intelligent KNOWS what pedophilia/abuse is and that its not morally sound or appropriate. Especially considering they sit around in chat rooms and try to find ways to keep it hidden and secretive. Excusing it as ONLY ignorance doesnt work anymore but I bet you there are a lot of people who still will try it.

The priest who is mentioned in the articles wrote a book. It hasn't been translated into eng fully anywhere yet but I'd be curious to see it translated. l feel horrible for the guy and what he had to witness but I'm thankful that he aided two young victims and was brave enough to come forward with information. Even if they're withholding more horrifying details that they should release, I'm grateful that this is being exposed, because people need to realize how dire the actual situation is, it's not just about k-pop celebrities anymore but about the gruesome and horrifying details of exploitative ventures that some of them happened to be involved in- and how that extends to an even deeper corruption, and that is not something that should be ignored.

Seungri always gave me douche vibes, even though everyone else thought he was charismatic for the longest time before all the controversies started building up one by one. Am not surprised by the recent revelations about him. Like, so many other top male idols seem like they’d be douches as people (Ratmon, Zico, Taeyong). Jonghyun’s the only male idol that never gave me asshole vibes—maybe Eric Nam as well although Eric sometimes seems a little too nice at times that it can come off as suspicious.

I don't get your nitpicking tbh. Not wking her but it's clear that she's changing her image ever since she got featured for Clio after Etude House. The same brand that features mature actresses/celebs like Lee Hyori and Gong Hyo Jin.

She's definitely going for that mature image as she's aging and she knows that f(x) is done for good, so there's no reason for her to go for the cutesy image anymore. She might as well prepare for a more promising career/future by changing her image. If anything, good for her.

gay dating rumors can make sense if there are actual arguments other than "he sat on his lap!" or "the company is trying to separate them!!". all boy groups do cringy gay fanservice. if two members of the same group were in a closeted relationship and broke up it would completely ruin the group, especially if they made it public. it would be dumb of them to make it so obvious.

That's how I feel like it is with most third generation idols. They're styled a lot younger and they look a lot younger. Even the supposedly "edgy" idols like BP are infantized (sideyes at jennie's weird lolibait bs) and most other girlcrush concept groups are a lot trendier and younger looking than their predecessors, who were styled in more mature, wacky fashion and wore far heavier makeup? Maybe it's just a generational shift but there is this inclination towards SK trying to make idols (and lets not kid ourselves, the male ones too, look at that fucking TXT MV) look more childish.

And as time goes by they keep trying to make them look younger… and younger… and many of the older 3rd gen groups are fully grown adults by this point.

TWICE were styled the most "adult" during Like Ooh Ahh and Sixteen, ironically when half of them were underage.

You'd have to search through every Weekly Idol episode with teenage girl groups to get an idea of her being a pervert but only ironically so it's fine, but searching for Hani with Oh My Girl's Arin gives a list of a few instances that are just a bit weird given the circumstances. Arin was only 15 when she debuted and was 16 and 17 when Hani started sperging about how she was her ideal type. There's loads of instances of older female idols being really sweet with underage idols without ever having to call them their ideal types or anything, it's just a bit weird that she uses specific phrases like that. Hani just seems like she thinks being quirky and not understanding boundaries is cute and she applies that to talking about teenage girls as well as burping to be unique. Would be less weird if fans didn't use it as a reason to love lesbian queen Hani

>the only gg that look like tehir age is red velvet and even that's debatable…


That's why RV is so popular with women. And I mean women, not teens. Same goes for Mamamoo.

And I think this is also the reason why Yeri is the least popular from RV (aside from lack of talent and charisma), she's just too young compared to the others and is usually the most infantilised. I think SM is trying to change that a bit, but she's a hack nonetheless. also why power up wasn't as big as bad boy and peakaboo, although still pretty big

Crazy, it's almost like women prefer looking at entertainers that reflect themselves? Idealised, yes, but at least more adult-like.

But hey, women don't make as much money and more importantly - don't drop as much money as these uncle fans, so unclebait k-pop is probably not going to leave soon.

Side note: I do believe that was also the reason SNSD was so popular with women as well. I know SNSD was also immensely popular with men; with makes me wonder if, with the rise of wota virgins, the market shifted to more "pure", "girl-next-door", non-threatning looking waifu idols.

The whole vibe of their new comeback is just off. just because their styling is more "edgy" doesn't mean the concept is. the song is still cuetsy af. i don't think the attempt to transition into a more mature concept is gonna cut it. why not milk the cuetsy concept till they're 25 and then go full mature like apink?

There is still a limit with Red Velvet. Be Natural had a way more mature vibe than their current stuff but R&B vocals and suits don't placate the kpopalypse uncles so they ditched it for the autistic Sue Lyons routine that Irene seems to permanently reside in.

Oh yeah, deffo. You still have to pander to be as high as they are, but what I was saying was more "you don't have to go as low and would still get women's money too, to boot". But yeah. At least I think RV experiments a bit more with their concepts than Twice and BP.

As for Wendy's jaw… I still don't now if that was a corporate's decision or her own. She's always so insecure. Either way, I mourn it, she had a pretty nice face shape.

Apparently it's a real surname similar to: Buening, Huenink, Dunning, Piening, Durning, Guenin, Duensing. According to the site though, it's a very rare surname with the origin traced back to a city in the USA.

However, Idk how real his dad's name is since he has no connection to Wisconsin (he used to live in Texas) and is Brazilian. So idk how he got that surname unless he had it changed. The name kinda sounds chinese too (许宁), and it makes sense for him to want a chinese-sounding name since he's a huge chinaboo (who actually made it big in china, the equivalent of englishkoreanman and the likes in modern days). That's just my theory and I could be wrong. If he and his son arent public figures, I'd think of them as catfishes cause of the edgy ethnic backgrounds combination and shit (not that it's impossible though).

From what I saw on Twitter the upper tier was all empty and so were some sections. People did show up but considering the venue has 20k seats total, even 10k attending looks embarrassing.

The other venues aren't having as much luck in selling at all and they are half the size of Prudential.

Judging by the level of activity and the content in the Men You’re Ashamed To Say You’d Fuck Threads on here, many women have standards for guys less attractive than Bam Bam.

Anyway GOT7’s music is such shit. They had so much going for them (big comoany to help them out with marketing, international fanbase appeal) but never quite took off as expected and I think it has to do with their music.

My guess is that Jackson sooner or later will leave for that China money, or he pulls a lay and insists on still being part of the group, which then leads them towards disbandment cause Jackson (and bambam) are the sole reason for their international popularity. I don't think they're that big in Korea but idk.
