There's no such thing as ''naturally extremely underweight''. If you told people that some people are naturally mordibly obese, they wouldn't believe it so why do they delude themselves when it comes to their oppas and unnies? It's pretty damn coincidental that everyone in the korean entertainment industry just happens to be ''naturally skinny''. It's shocking how unhinged people prove to be when they call Rosé the girl with the ''best body in kpop''. SJW ''feminists'' promoting eating disorders kek.

The way ratmys or other kpop fans are policing US media and celebrities is embarrassing af. They got mad at Ellen too for asking if they hook up with their fans. They choose to enter the American market and interact with celebrities there why should people then conform to Korean norms and etiquettes? It's ridiculous.

Don’t know if this was posted last thread, it probably was, but JJY pleaded guilty to the spycam charges. He’s still under investigation with Choi Jong Hoon for rape charges.


Also, Roy Kim is still apparently set to graduate from Georgetown but he’s denying that he’s preparing…
I guess the school hasn’t expelled him yet.

There’s a petition still going around on campus, I think.

Jonghyun has been enlisted since August 2018 so maybe that’s why we haven’t heard anything.

Nah naturally "extremely" underweight/skinny people exist. I eat like shit, don't exercise, and I never gain weight lol. My mom was the same until she had kids. My friend too.

However I don't think she's one of those people. She doesn't carry weight in the right places and looks genuinely ana. Naturally skinny people still have pockets of fat/untoned muscle. Pretty sure I'm skinnier than her but I still look less spooky

Etc. Maybe it's yutachan making a come back. Nct is a boring fucking group. If there weren't so many nctfags in here, no one ever would've brought them up aside from like a one off comment about Taeyong being the poster boy for the gangnam oppa look or Yuta's scary, busted face.

Settle down ana-chan. Why do you lot always try to one up each other? not only you're sooo much skinnier than rosé, you're also "better looking". Stop trying to pass off your health issues as normal because you're heading straight towards an early grave if what you say is true

I don't know. Apparently it was only some female communities who were trying to drum up controversy whereas it doesn't seem like the public really cares. Asian Junkie exposed the IU-ZeZe scandal as something similar where it was literally the same handful of users commenting and blowing up the issue.

No. 31162


She was really cute and happy here. This reminds me of BamBam not wanting to look at his old pictures because of how dark he looked (and being made fun of JR/Jinyoung for being dark too) and Sorn from CLC going from looking like this Lisa picture to looking like a wide-eyed ghost. K-pop's beauty standards are so upsetting and bizarre, especially when you see how much prettier and normal looking some Asian celebs are outside of Korea. Like, compare BTS or some other kpop male idols to some top hot male actors in Japan. Except for some exceptions, the former usually look like botoxed cyborgs and the latter often actually look like handsome human beings.

No. 31163


Most female idols are underweight/ana to begin with but their companies usually try to hide it by using cheek fillers. Maybe Rose ran out of her supply.

As someone who follow them casually on Twitter, I would say that while Jimin is obviously attention seeking and his own members said so in the past, Jugnkook posts pretty rarely and is more of a "stay in the back and doesn't utter a word" kind of guy.

He seems the most invested in BTS's current success rn so maybe their current situation has him feeling more confident and desperate for attention (esp with all the attention he's been getting from American celebs lately) and his attention whore ways has skyrocketed.

They should get as much in as possible because it doesn't look like these celebs take them that seriously. How many of them actually promote their music/songs as opposed to just taking a pic with/tweeting the group?

No. 31201

The tweet thread is deleted now but someone that worked at the Soldier Field stadium tour date said Bighit banned all the trained female staff from working 15 minutes before the start of the show because of a 'no females allowed backstage policy.' This includes the showrunner with 10 years plus experience (who had worked with Beyonce, etc) because she was a female. So she had to be radio-ing in and organizing from off set or something. It apparently was total chaos.

the original tweet thread that was deleted but here's what was said:


If this is true bighit must believe every female that comes into contact with bts has secret designs to try to get into their pants regardless of their work, station in life/profession/culture etc.

I wonder if Korea has a culture of women joining idol companies as 'staff' for that very reason but who knows.

No. 31203

>I wonder if Korea has a culture of women joining idol companies as 'staff' for that very reason
This is not about bts but there were speculations that some female managers were obsessive fans.
I only vaguely remember but I think fans even had proof and honestly it doesn't seem too far fetched cause it can't be that difficult to get a job that basically consists of being a glorified servant for a bunch of people.

No. 31205

This is fucked but I also kind of…get it, in a way?

Obviously I don’t know the company’s reasoning but it seems like they’re trying to prevent any/all potential scandals aka protecting their investment. BTS seems incredibly controlled in that way and that might be why we haven’t heard any real scandals involving women (yet). Also, they can’t control or threaten or do invasive background checks the same way they can with Korean nationals.

Sounds like BigHit has a lot of paranoia after the GLaM incident, too.

I wonder if the same rules apply for Korean concerts?

No. 31206

No. 31213

There were definitely female staff members in that burn the stage movie. So this probably applied only to concerts outside Korea, if it's real. Makes sense, since they have no control over foreign stalkers or media. If something happened they wouldn't be able to cover it up as easily as in Korea, where they also have fans protect idols like crazy

First of all, where are you seeing a Dispatch couple announcement? I can't find anything about it, so link please.

Second, not sure how many of you are new to kpop but dating scandals have been super tame for like the past few years. Kai and Jennie were probably the most scandalous but there was literally just a pic of them walking together? At least when Baekhyun and Taeyeon were exposed, Dispatch had a pic of Taeyeon noona kissing Exo-Ls precious oppa in her Mercedes. Nothing can compare to way back then when Exo-Ls were so deluded and convinced that Taeyeon was evil and manipulating poor Baek, and that Taeyeon was a hoe who had dated sooo many idols in SM so Baekhyun was just a pawn.

So yeah, not expecting much from this. If anything, it'll probably be a 2nd gen idol that is washed up and dating some chaebol/actor/athlete, or an unheard of 3rd gen idol who isn't even known. Dispatch loves to exaggerate shit like "it's a TOP idol" when and when it's revealed it's like…Got7 or Momoland, lmao.

I feel bad personally for people like Choi Soohwan who's super talented and deserves to be in the final lineup, but is already ranked #56 despite being impressive to the judges and being in A group.

Theoretically speaking, if you were to go on this show, it doesn't even matter to be talented to debut in the final lineup. All you need is a sob story and some charm, and some favoritism from the producers of the show. Bonus points if you're good looking. Best example is the slope-shouldered Kim Mingyu (pic related) who is so utterly talentless but looks like a poor man's Cha Eunwoo.

Comments on the show are shaming this season for being devoid of "visuals" but this is a show that is supposed to be about singing and dancing. It'd make far more sense to put the highest ranked in talent in the final group and to create a supergroup similar to a 10-member TVXQ.

No. 31301


There will never be a group like T5XQ again and that's because these companies don't have their priorities in check and neither do Korean fangirls' whose psychotic tastes dominate the decision making. It's ridiculous to think that they even want to make a global group when they won't even allow international fans to vote.

I never said that PD48 groups are below debuted 3rd gen groups, but they definitely have the well-rounded talent within at least 5 guys to form a supergroup like TVXQ. The issue is though, those guys won't fit the beauty standards and will be forgotten about. But honestly TVXQ aside from Yunho and post-PS Changmin and Jaejoong, are kind of ugly/average yet they're still remembered as legends.
I hate that I'm kind of becoming a fan of the poor kid. His story is actually kind of inspiring yet he didn't get plastic surgery before going on the show like Cha Junho (pic), who on the other hand, was a total eyesore but now 'passes' as a "visual" and is ranked not too low below #10 since he looks like Infinite L sans a few chromosomes. The weird thing is that Cha Junho is still ranked highly despite his "before" pictures getting leaked, and he's a confirmed uggo so I'm not sure what people are seeing in him as he's useless too.
That's a good point. If international fans were allowed to vote, how much do y'all wanna bet that Peak would be #1?

Yup. I don’t think we’ve heard much, if any, news involving chaebols either. iirc at least one chaebol bastard was involved in some chat and I don’t know if we got his name.

No. 31344

Yeah, it’s convenient that there are high-profile celebrities involved so that they can let the case play out and have them face punishment (which they totally deserve, don’t get me wrong). It’s allowing other people involved to get away without the public getting angry that “nothing is being done”

Probably misremembering, but the way royalties are distributed to foreign idols (or foreigners in the music industry) is done on a country to country basis, and certain countries (including Thailand) will acknowledge one revenue of royalties but not another, and failure of a country to negotiate royalty agreements for its own idols fucks their pay over. CLC’s Sorn (another Thai idol) made a video about it a while back. She mentions another foreign CLC member who is impacted by the same issue.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this is in effect to purposely screw over foreigners in the music industry, and is probably one of the many mechanisms in place to do that.

Idk if it's just me but to me Jisoo also seems kinda condescending sometimes, could be just her personality though.

Why do they even try to become kpop idols at all? There's so much money to be made in China. It's shameful they use their korean fans while clearly not giving a f like Lay and Victoria. Even japanese kpop idols are more invested.

No. 31502

Cause even the lesser known idols become somewhat popular in China afterwards just cause they have the title "kpop idol".
The Chinese entertainment industry is huge and thus competitive af, so it's way easier to get your name out there first then enter the Chinese market.

No. 31504

Many foreign idols do get scouted by Korean companies though. Like all these auditions in different countries aren't there just to find Korean talent, it's to find foreign talent too. And companies use the idols to gather fans in different countries as they cannot sustain themselves through Korean fans alone. Look at any YouTube comment section of a group with any Thai member for example, all the comments will be about them.

Some are also k-pop fans themselves

Companies exploit that fanbase while paying dust to the actual foreign idol. Cheng Xiao from WJSN (to use them as an example again) has zero lines in some of their songs, but they have no qualms in farming her out to variety to show off her backflips. The8 for Seventeen and Amber from f(x) got put on a show (can't remember the name) that got literal Korean kids to "teach" them how to speak Korean and treated them like they were stupid as if they couldn't speak Korean already.

Foreign idols go through so much more shit then the Korean members that I don't blame any of them for leaving or wanting to have a career in their homeland too.

It wouldn't bother me so much if people took the kpopalypse approach (one of the very few things I agree with him on) and said they don't care about live vocals but just how something sounds on a record. But so many kpoppies try to pretend people like Rosé or Jimin are master vocalists, which is hilariously pathetic. I get the distinct feeling if they weren't in k-pop they would be dragged by these same people.

And then there are groups like ITZY where all the vocal talent is bizarrely located in the three non-vocalists. I*ZONE's lack of talent really gets me because they were picked from a fucking audition show. How come their vocals are much shittier than GFRIEND and CLC?

No. 31592

Most of IZONE were picked for looks. Including Sakura.

She never had to do anything at all from the first place, she was born rich. In fact all recent kpop idols seem to be born well off. In Twice, the foreign members all seem super rich while it's obvious the korean members are working harder. I don't care for Twice, they do music for little kids and pedos but there are few idols who do their best like Jihyo

No. 31764

i remember when oh my girl debuted and i
thought she was so beautiful but what the fuckk did she do to herself holy cow
it was always played up as SNSD being ~SUPER~ close but it was so obvious that some of it was sorta fakey. i don't remember much about it being called out as the opposite other then hyoyeon being bullied and attempting suicide claims.

No. 31766

to these people its not about money, they have that, it's about ego, fame, adoration, image, status thats what they want

No. 31767

given the fact that snsd is a 9 member group it's unlikely that they're all buddy buddy. it's probably like a few people at a time who have closer friendships / stronger animosities with one another than with the other members

sort of like how in blackpink it's lisa & rosé vs jennie & jisoo

No. 31768

I don't get it tbh. It's obvious that even now that SNSD is disbanded (because yes they are), the members who left SM still play up ''uwu i'm still a member of SNSD'' to further their own career goals. Sooyoung and Seohyun are not talented actresses and would have never become such if they hadn't been part of the SNSD brand SM created for them. At least Jessica is commendable for how upfront she was about her ambitions as a CEO/trophy wife/influencer whatever kek

No. 31772

No one remembers the "Taengsic" ship that was like…non-existent? I think only like 14 people had their badge on OH when SONEs were everywhere, because Taeyeon and Jessica literally had like no fan service moments at all, and the pictures they did have together were so fake. Then the Taengsic shippers all hid them when Jessica's departure came out. I remember the stories about the formation of TTS initially including Jessica but because Taeyeon didn't get along with Jessica, they put Seohyun in the sub-unit instead. I remember also the gifs of Sunny looking sad/pissed off every time she'd promote post-OT9, and all the gossip that she was still friends with Jessica and was miserable without her.

I don't think much of it is true but it makes me so nostalgic to remember that it was always Taeyeon (and Tiffany as Taeyeon's own Gretchen Weiners) vs Jessica. That's just how everyone saw it though.

Damn I feel kinda like a loser for remembering all of this.

The biggest and most obvious case of gg beef was Taeyeon vs Jessica. Youtube alone has so many gems but anyone who kept up with the group could easily see that Jessica was slowly being iced out. Jessica was supposed to be in TTS, which was supposed to be TTJ (which makes sense since the subunit was supposed to be about the popular vocalists and Jessica was far more popular than Tiffany and her voice more distinct) but she got booted for Seoyeon because of Taeyeon. I also heard Jessica was jealous towards any one in the group who got close to her guy friends, like 2pm's Taecyeon and cat fights happened after that. Their last KCON before Jessica got booted you could cut the tension with a knife.

It always makes me wonder what's really going on in this big groups. Like in T-ara Hwayoung's sister threatened to cut up the face of one of the new additions, Areum. THe only difference between T-ara and other ggs is that they got caught by putting their own business on twitter, which is probably why companies control group accounts now. But I can imagine there being some jealousy and sloppy shit. Like in 2nd gen, people spilled that idols would switch partners between the groups (like a 2pm member banging a GG member, then breaking up and banging another GG member while she cheats on him with another 2pm member). Messy shit like that.

Tldr, massive amounts of drama follow these kpop groups and bullying is also probably pretty common.


In the older days, groups fought hard to be as good as they could be because they knew if they fucked up and didn't succeed they and their families weren't eating. Didn't Yunho sleep in train stations before he debuted in TVXQ? It's no wonder then new idols perform and sound like shit on stage. There's no desperation since they could quit today and just go be insta models and jet set across the world on mommy's dime.


I feel the sorriest for Maknae line esp jimin and jungkook because it's obvious they crave the spotlight and attention more than anyone in the group and will probably be unable to cope once they age, the fame goes away and the fillers catch up with them to fuck up their faces.

huh? hyolyn is an ex Sistar girl group member. they were a 2nd gen group that were pretty popular but fell off and went their separate ways. korea has its own mini subculture of r&b/hip hop artists that aren't held to the same ~uwu pure idol~ standard. jay park and jessi are some examples

No. 31782

First all, start integrating into board culture because being condescending towards other users never gets you far. Second of all, you are immensely mistaken. Anons never take offense at outfits being ''slutty'' but at how hidden in plain sight the oversexualization of kpop is. Everything and by that I mean everything is supposed to convey sexiness. So we are in a context where extremely young girls (like Wonyoung, 14 and Somi who performed in bdsm gear aged 15) given clothes and performances meant to arouse their male audience to give their companies money. Some of these girls are so young and/or sheltered, they may not even realize how creepy their whole business is. Meanwhile hip hop ''artists'' are open about the sexual nature of their work and most female hiphop ones like Jessi are assertive and proud about their body. Indeed, it is unlikely that someone watches Jessi's music videos because he/she doesn't have access to child porn. Meanwhile you can judge for yourself in the related video.

Lisa hands down has the best body proportions and the smallest face and height combo out of the girls - aka all the things Koreans pride in beauty standards.

It sucks that Jennie's CEO mom makes sure her untalented daughter is promoted above all others. But aside from her nationality Lisa isn't any different from the others. She's a wealthy (seriously if she didn't have money she would never have even made it into the YG or probably Korea), untalented, plain af Thai girl (there are tons of absolutely gorgeous Thai women and she isn't one of them) who isn't that attractive even after a nosejob, eyejob, skin lightening, and god knows what else. She keeps herself very very thin because her figure is only selling point. She can't sing for shit and her rapping is ridiculous. And despite being the main dancer, her dancing is only mediocre.

I used to abuse benzos too and he shows a lot of signs of it. He has benzo mouth and that super glazed skin that's common in users.

In this interview you can really see it. I'm shocked they let him appear like this tbh.

Benzos are typically prescribed as anti-anxiety meds. If he's taking them, then they're mostly likely prescribed.

Anyway she said that she smiled and said hi to them and waved but they just gave her a quick glance and turned away without acknowledging her at all. But then when they left the store there were more fans and cameras outside and suddenly! they're all smiles and saying hi and waving to everyone.

Thy act as if they were photosynthesizing this whole time.
Like that Kangnam trash that said this on some show and after a few months crying over this on tv he finally said his balance is good now. And he bought an entire building in Seoul. Then he stopped his begging.
There was another (ex-?)member of an older female group recently that is playing the same card.
And what's even worse that both of them are in their 30s!

I mean, I don't doubt that some idols play up to the cameras saying they don't have anything. But at the same time a lot of the smaller groups will literally be in debt for the rest of their lives. And just because a company houses them doesn't mean the conditions are any good. I believe a group called The Legend literally went without electricity cos their company didn't pay the bills. T-ara used to say how their company "forgot" to feed them frequently.

Then you get trash like TS who refuse to pay their artists, then sue them if they try to leave, sue them when they leave and the sue them when they win their lawsuits against the company.

I agree with that but my comment was directed more towards those that're nearing/are in their 30s who do that. They're way past the age to earn money in other ways instead on selling their "sobbing" stories to get cash the easy way.
As for the youngest ones, I'm sure they get paid more than the average person, it's just that expect to be as rich as those from the big3.
It just annoys me when they use this so their fans get more active into pouring money into them.

No. 32632

Oh yes the ones nearing their 30s/30+ should def be given a slap. I mean idols have such a short career span realistically, so they should be putting multiple eggs in multiple baskets. I feel like with this trend of groups self composing that many of them will be able to get producing jobs after idolship, but a lot of the ones that are already 30 now probably didn't think about that back then and now haven't got fuck all to fall back on.

Than again it's proven you can rape people and beat women in this industry and you'll still have hoardes of fans so why bother with real work when fans will always fund your shitty lives.

big bang was still popular with the general public around the time they enlisted but that was before seungri's scandal + members slacking off in the army.

I feel like the BTS hype only began in the first place because some executive noticed the hole in the western boyband market after 1D split and started shoving them into talk shows. They weren't even that popular compared to other idols.

It's already being accepted by the gp and ofc, their fans. I'm just waiting for another fake win in Amrica of some sort and their exemption will be official.
I'm sure they'll try to oppose the decision to show how "ready" they to go when the duty calls.

Not that anon but it's probably because if she called out a black koreaboo for being fat then there is a chance ppl would go reee racism so it's safer to state that it had nothing to do with ethnicity cause she's black too. It happens many times with calling out SEA you know.

Yaoi is popular among some lesbians and I guess BTS fits that 'nonthreatening flower boy uwu' thing aesthetically so they project the yaois onto it is my guess.

on the contrary, she gained weight, ditched the bleached crackhead brows, and looks like she actually brushed and washed her hair. the bar is laughably low, but she did clear it.

fuck off, giving someone food and shelter doesn’t justify paying them dust when they’re raking in millions for your company. these idols in their 30s (who you refuse to name, funnily enough) who supposedly beg for money on tv are complete outliers, most of the time it’s a teenaged nugus who are upset because they get paid the equivalent of $8 USD per week to buy themselves food. can’t believe this thread has sunk low enough that we’re now justifing kpop slave contracts…

yeah, i have no idea why idols like LE and Hwasa who don’t have monolids go for that smokey CL cat eye look, it always turns out really bizarre and drag queen-ish. in LE’s case it doesn’t help that her eyes are completely botched. i know an anon upthread was sperging about Irene’s completely normal-looking eyelids, but LE genuinely looks like someone took a hatchet to her epicanthic fold (pic related)

I think it's cause they're one of the closest kpop groups to Western Pop Music.

It's probably also easy to jump on the train of things already popular to help gain traction, which is what a lot of Western entertainment is doing with kpop right now.

They would not be this big if they were under some no name label though. YG really helped establish them in kpop. Top 3 entertainment can get away with putting out absolutely shit music and talent and people will eat it up as you can see.

Japanese idols were sometimes obliged to make child porn before the law change of 1999.

IMO it's only Korea's hardcore anti-porn laws introduced during the dictatorship stopping the same thing ever popping up around Korean idols because there are so many creeps into all kinds of nasty deviant shit on the k-net. Still the law is not enforced much

I really didn't get it either until I became a little more familiar with them.
To me, she stood out by default by being the only member to consistently have short blonde hair. She also pandered a lot to male fans during performances and always seemed to do more than the others (gif as an example).

I genuinely hope Seungri gets beat up in the military.

I doubt it. Loads of this prostitution culture comes from the military because South Korea opened up legal brothels for US servicemen and it spiralled down into regular conscription and became a feature of national service

On the other hand Seungri was an older man abusing young women. That's a huge traditional taboo in Korea, men like this are called thieves and not seen in a good light at all. I've never heard of older male and young female being an official taboo in other countries. The newer trashier generations and k-cels discard this taboo though

I don't think it was solely her fault. Xiyeon had some kind of injury. The other members were apologizing to fans over not having vlives, there was probably more going on behind the scenes (perhaps both before and after Kyla left).

Kyla implies in her Instagram post about the disbandment after a commentator blames her that she wants to spill the tea on the company. Imagine being these girls and training for 5+ years, longer than the average trainee period, particularly for Kyla and Xiyeon, who were with the company 9 and 11 years respectively- to only debut for 2 years. With how many members there are I imagine at least one of them who's fed up with Pledis is going to spill behind the scenes tea.

No. 33018

You can see it cause he's dark skinned+very dark hair. He probably doesn't want to laser it off cause he's one of the few koreans who can grow a good beard and wants to keep it for the future or something.
I think he just gets lots of fillers. It makes him look plastic and disgusting just like his friend taemin

His hair is black, like (nearly) all other Koreans and therefore idols hair too. And black hair show more on white than on tan skin, so that would actually work in his favor.

Yeah the common narrative is that female idols are victims of the expectations thrust upon them by the GP. And it is definitely true with some of them who are obviously too weak to handle the pressure: Park Bom, Luna etc. But ones like IU, Rosé, Seolhyun, Yoona etc are definitely proudly promoting eating disorders.

No. 33193

i think its mainly because its only us noticing her and Lisa are fucked up and BP are the second biggest group in kpop. blinks are one of the most delusional fanbases. even public anachans like JinE and AOA Jimin take fucking years to be recognized by normies as disordered. i posted the IU thing but i know she can dodge a lot of scrutiny because she uses the pseudo-feminist pseudo-intellectual crap

i'm assuming its because it was SISTAR's marketing for them to badd ghurllz (therefore giving them armor). also, T-ARA's 'scandal' was manufactured by i-fans at a point when domestic sales were collapsing and their agency handled the situation badly and threw them to the dogs. now SISTAR are all approaching 30 and the public taste for these things changed.

while i was a fan i never understood how people could conceptualize virtually anything about SISTAR as 'feminist'. nearly all their songs are about being a lap dog for men. k-sjws are a special type of retarded

No. 33194

idk about knetizens, but from a westerner standpoint who viewed mostly western kpop media, sistar was liked because hyolyn and bora had darker skin and embraced a ~sexy image~ in spite of it, which is kinda a racist way of thinking in my opinion

Basically that´s why Jimin is crying every concert. Because the fans can feel special and moved by all the emotion and what they mean to him.
Let´s be real here, BTS are playing the game well and better than any other boyband before and propably after them.
Is this necessarily bad? Nah, boyband are boybands after all.
More sad is, that at one point a long time ago, they had with their music some kind of potential. Now they are just milking every fan that is stupid enough and appearantly, there are a hella lot of stupid fans.

I know I'm focusing on little details but I really hate how idols keep touching their hair/clothes while dancing. I mean, when you learn how to dance the first thing you learn is to stop doing that, it's very unprofessional and it makes it harder for the public to get into the show and for the dancer to really focus on the choreo. If their hair bothers them, why not tie it up ?

Kpop idols should stay away from covering music by Western artists who are known for their charisma and stage presence, it just makes them look that much more like a personality vacuum.

Rose never 'promoted' being an anachan. You're dumb if you think every eating disordered idol would encourage others to develop an eating disorder. Just because she appears in public with her toothpick legs showing doesn't mean that she's blatantly encouraging her fans to starve themselves. And I hate BlackPink but let's not pick on someone who is clearly struggling with a severe mental illness. If anything, her weight is a cry for help, but as we saw with Bom's plastic surgery addiction, YG isn't going to do shit and someone needs to actually intervene.

Afaik Rose hasn't even released an official "diet" that she follows like some other girl groups have.

This video I attached is what an idol 'promoting' an eating disorder looks like. If you want to see an idol that actually endorses horrible diets and suffers from extreme self-esteem problems then look no further than Luna's YT channel.

Again with making people with eating disorders out to be aggressors… you realize that these labels and Korean culture look down upon women who are even in the average BMI category. How are these women not supposed to feel pressure to diet? Just because some fans are too dumb and take their starvation diets as the gospel doesn't mean that they're directly endorsing these diets unless they explicitly say that they recommend them. Most celebrity diets usually have the celebrity saying "I get to binge once the promotion is over," and no, it isn't healthy but at least these celebrities are admitting that these diets are not sustainable and many of them are clearly in need of treatment (Wendy for instance).

Its been discussed many times that for some weird reason kpop fans believe that people with the most obvious eating disorders constantly gorge themselves. I can remember back when SNSD was relevant they did this with Sooyoung and it was so bizarre to me.
Just google shikshin. That was her nickname because they cultivated this weird obsessive idea that even though Sooyoung was practically skelly, that she ate ALL the time nonstop. Its a weird cope mechanism or something. I think its done on purpose. Meanwhile idols that arent as skinny get chastized for eating anything other than a sweet potato and tomatoes.

The fact that she has shown that she wants to move back to china and have a career there instead.
Not only because its literally her own home country, but also because theres more of a profit in acting and modeling and singing in china than there is in korea now? Why tf would she want to stay in a practically dead group, in a shitty company that mistreats the idols and clearly doesnt care about anything even their biggest groups? Not to mention the issues with China-SK relations. And shes already rich as fuck. Most idols that "take a break" from kpop groups only stay under contract with technicalities to save face with psycho fans who think if an idol leaves, especially to go to another country, they're a "traitor" before cutting ties completely once the contract is officially up. Plus this is fx we are talking about. Nobody in fx cares about the group as a whole anymore except Luna and thats just because shes desperate and overcompensating for the fact that no one likes her outside of that core fx fanbase. Even Amber has managed to get a life outside of the group and country. Krystal and Amber care about Luna Im sure. Thats why they showed up at her performance. But fans are being ridiculous and grasping for anything at all to convince themselves that fx is going to be a thing again. Especially with Victoria and/or Sulli, who have basically nothing to do with that stuff anymore and clearly prefer acting.

Yesterday I read comments about Laboum's Yulhee and jesus, nothing but people who defend her. For whose who don't know, she got pregnant and then left her group.
All the comments are from backwards SEA writing bullshit like "young girl being in love and starting family is wonderful!" "you hate babies?! she's sooo mature for not aborting" etc, while koreans and normal fans just pointed out that she broke a contract and was just a teen - which is definitely less than ideal, especially considering that according to herself the father isn't really helping her with the baby.

I know this is beating an old horse, but there's probably nothing that I hate more about kpop than bts whining about how hard they supposedly work.
This korean(!) figure skater "only" skates for 5 hours a day, yet qualified for the olympics. Meanwhile ratmon and co. are trying to make everybody believe that they dance 15 hours every single day, on top of their normal schedule…and sadly ratmy eat up everything they say.

correct me if i'm wrong but i always assumed most of the controversy with yulhee wasn't just bc she got pregnant, but bc she lied about it? she didn't tell her members or the company, continued performing while pregnant, then suddenly quit the group and disappeared. she didn't announce she was pregnant until like the month the baby was due, and the father was an idol in ftisland. then she returned to the public eye and wanted a lot of sympathy, which seems shitty since as anon pointed out >>33354
her behavior was so idiotic. having the baby wasn't a terrible thing to do (but was definitely irresponsible and sad considering the couple seems kinda miserable) but she doesn't seem very sorry for how her mistakes hurt people and she should be called out. nothing wrong with having a baby, but at least be mature about it.

Do you expect idols to just not have sex lol? You do realize almost all idols ARE in fact sexually active? Even the younger ones. And the reason there arent pregnancies is because most of the females are put on birth control when they debut? Even then, accidents probably happen and there have probably been some abortions. Possibly even forced ones due to idol company culture and societal pressure. Not to mention, where is your anger directed towards male idols that are just as sexually active and probably only became an idol so they could, in fact, fuck female idols? The way you're wording your argument is the problem. You seem real upset that female idols have sex and pregnancy is a result of that action. Not as much about if she lied or whatever happened after, which is an understandable point and criticism is warranted.

There have been rumors, particularly surrounding Hyuna having an abortion after sleeping with a male idol/mc or something. Cant remember who it was. Male idols only get sex scandals if they are caught visiting prostitutes or hanging out with non idol females, such as crew memebers and makeup artists or celebs from other countries etc. And even then its brushed under the rug eventually. They can fuck any idol they want with little to no controversy. Eunhyuk fucked IU and she uploaded pics after and he got like…no shit whatsoever from fans. All the hatred was towards her. We see what happened with Hara as well. Male idols have probably impregnated girls, but you wont hear anything unless the girl has the baby. And even then, as in the case with Yulhee, the girl will face all the hatred and anger and the male escapes relatively unscathed.

i think tiffany was one of sm's favorites up until the snapchat filter scandal so that's why they pushed her ship with taeyeon. she got a lot of lines in songs too even though her singing was pretty bad iirc.

No. 33394

talent wise, they passed on jessica so much in favor of tiffany whenn they knew damn well tiffany was useless for anything other than her ~eye smile~ and naivety and its no wonder jessica was so over it the majority of her time in the group

i would be pissed if i was jessica and they didn't put me in the subunit centered around vocals when i was the 2nd best singer in the group. it's no wonder she was the first to leave.

i think jessica was initially chosen for TTS but taeyeon got mad at her and sm replaced her with seohyun

there was a blind item floating around that said as much and honestly, a lot of the blind items thought to be about snsd seem not so farfetched after everything went down the way it did

It was Jay Park that was rumored to have gotten Hyuna pregnant. But she was like 15 at the time, so unless Korea is on some United States Teen Mom shit, I find it very unlikely that she got kicked out because she was pregnant.

>Performing while she's pregnant with tight clothes. Name a braver woman. She's a queen

Not surprising to find out that YG is a pedo rapist. What would actually be surprising is if he actually receives time in prison for this.

She didnt get kicked out of wonder girls. The original rumor is that she had an abortion and had complications that required hospital time(hence her excuse of chronic gastroenteritis, which is also what soyul from Crayon Pop claimed to be hospitalized for when she was actually just pregnant when she first found out and stopped performing) and so she and the company agreed to terminate the contract. Not sure why you think its unheard of for a female to have sex that young though….Teen pregnancy is NOT exclusive to America lol? It may not be as glorified elsewhere, but to say it doesnt happen is pretty weird and false.

this is it
Girl Group 01

Member L(Jessica) from a popular girl group has not been on friendly terms with her management, staff and fellow members (everything is strictly professional). Member L(Jessica) was told to go under the knife when she received a drama offer late last year. She was not keen on receiving the role and more so did not want to go through any plastic surgery procedure. She was also told that she was going to work on a musical project once she finishes filming all her parts. However, when she became adamant about the role and the surgical procedure her agency threatened her pull her off the musical project. So she went along with the agency’s decision. She was miserable with the initial surgical result and to make matters worse Member K(Taeyeon) who was also a part of the musical project requested the agency to replace L(Jessica) from the project with M(Seohyun), because L(Jessica) was unprofessional and argumentative during rehearsals. The agency also decided that it would be more profitable if they released the project earlier then planned. To top that Member K(Taeyeon) felt that M(Seohyun) was more deserving and the agency agreed. L(Jessica) was told about this change while she was shooting for her show, and as a result she felt she was back-stabbed by everyone involved excluding member M(Seohyun). Collaborative project was an instant surprise hit and L(Jessica) was not happy.

this was before everything happened
also, i remember netizens investigating, and not long after, the people on soshified doing damage control, and then one of them posting on their official account something along the lines of "wow you're such a fucking bitch" and that day two major jessica fansites shut down so everyone started to get scared that it was about jessica due to some shit posted on weibo
then a few weeks later jessica got knocked out by the body guard in the airport, and then like…the next week she made the post about being kicked from the group

idk but it was a wild time in the fandom and i had already checked out by then and was just watching them go down in a slow flame lol

Korea and East Asia as a whole has widespread honor/shame culture that encourages young girls to abort teen pregnancies or hide them rather than publicly talk talk about them. That's why they're so unheard of, they do happen, statistically less than the US, but they're encouraged to abort or hide them.

The rate in those countries is supposedly lower but who knows if the stats are ever true? Hearing the nasty shit about underage girls and burning sun and other numerous kpop scandals and the sexual coercion and abuse that underage trainees face makes me think that there's way more unreported young pregnancies in the country than realized- at least in the ent industry

Gayoung: Honestly, we didn't think ourselves to be sexy. Even our agency wondered if this would suit us. But as we practiced, we realized we could be [sexy].

Gayoung: It turned out really well for us. We got tons of love calls for various event performances and our negative [bank] balance became positive. We also got a car and a dorm. We also got a practice room that we could use all we wanted.

Minhee: Instead of sexiness, we wanted to pour our sincerity into the release ["Mask"].

Gayoung: We included in the lyrics why we had no choice but to do the sexy concept for 'Marionette'. We wanted to explain that we did it to receive love from the public.

Hyoeun: But, nobody seemed interested in our sincerity. It was to the point they didn't even know we made a comeback. Those who listened to the track said it was good, but people wouldn't even give it a listen.

Squeezing yourself into those mini shorts and topping it of with pulling the belt as tight as possible cannot be healthy. And it's not just 10 minutes, idols constantly complain about eating 100 calories a day, only 3 hours of sleep, having to practice for 15 hours etc. every single day. (If that's not considered harmful for a pregnant woman, then maybe we should stop feeling any pity for idols in general? Since it's not even that bad, amirite?)
This is not the same as normal women doing light jogging or pilates during their pregnancy.

Nevertheless, still not even remotely as bad as way older men doing that with even younger girls.
People here even brought up that twice having a fanbase of young men in their 20s and 30s is something positive - because hey, they could be 50 as well.

Eh, can’t help but feel a bit bad for ex-trainees like Grace to spend much of their integral years training and performing only to end up washed out without many marketable real-world skills in the end. Being a successful idol’s a pipe dream and only attainable for the top 0.1% of trainees from rich and influential families. And being a successful idol comes with more cons than pros. Sadly these kids and teens are deceived by predatory companies and don’t realize until it’s too late how much they’ve wasted.

Still Grace has even admitted herself that her singing sucks so I don’t know what she’s doing trying to be a singer. Should just stick to tea-spilling videos for now and maybe build a career outside of anything entertainment-related.

Even if she doesn't wanna go back to school, couldn't she become a Twitch streamer or something? I know someone from Crayon Pop did that and she's doing decently at it.

So you actually thought 40 and 50 something armys who masturbate regulary to jimin's and jungkook's pics dont exist? No gender is better or worse in this case. I dont get why you insist on blaming the male fans while wking the female ones when theyre equally insane.

I can't help but feel sorry for them. They're not the best, but to me they're waaay more talented and capable than the bigger, more popular girl groups such as bp and twice. They kinda missed their chance to become big are now overshadowed by the newer, more successful group.
I'm guessing we'll hear about their disbandment soon.

What's with the weird ass symbolism in TXT's videos? (3:06)

No. 33611

Seungyeon is legit a good dancer imo, and Yeeun is a better rapper than most girl groups have. I feel sorry that they're been wasted here.

I feel like Cube tried out too many different styles with them and it's only hurt their chances of being known. Like BP and Twice may not be talented, but you know what image they sell and what they are going to put out. CLC does not have that consistency. Example: The follow up to Hobgoblin should have been Black Dress, not Where Are You/Distance. They shouldn't have waited nearly a year between Black Dress and No.

But Cube cannot manage a group successfully for the life of them so.

No. 33612

It's really not their best and promo for it has been messy.
I was actually a huge fan of Where Are You but agree the timing was really off since they don't have an established dual concept like Red Velvet

No. 33628

I find it really weird how obsessive fans blow things out of proportion sometimes or just make it a bigger issue that it is. For example, do you guys remember that whole #respectlisa thing? It went so far that US sites and channels covered it and made it seem like everyone in Korea hated her. But all of this was caused by a netizenbuzz translation with the top comments not even having 1000 up votes.
I'm glad they got called for seeing SEAs as inferior but it wasn't that big and because of all the buzz Lisa actually found out about it too.
I'm sure she'd have no idea about some random article about her if it weren't for the rabid fans.

it's one of the most annoying things about kpop fanbases imo. the littlest rumor or mean comment is enough to make some fans start trending hashtags or whatever. plus fans are awful at hiding things they don't want to spread lmao

No, the age gap of 5 years isn't a big deal unless you're like 12 and have no concept of adults dating. Plenty of my girl friends who are in early 20s have been in stable relationships with men 5-6 years older and it's worked better because men are naturally more immature than women are at the same ages.

I absolutely agree with you. And that's why there's also nothing wrong with women in their 20s liking kpop groups who are 5 years younger than themselves.

No. 33646

Agreed. It's sad that they'll eventually be pushed aside by G-idle (who have a consistent theme and style) despite being more talented than them by a landslide. All of CLC can sing properly and perform well, but G-idle's only strong point is their rapper. Every time I watch that group perform I'm just waiting for someone to hit a wrong note or even for Soyeon to get off beat.
It's really unfortunate because CLC has had some really nice b-sides unlike a lot of girl groups. Cube worst company

No. 33649

Seems like more and more bullying victims of idols speak out. And taking into account just how severe bullying in Korea can be, they absolutely deserve having their careers ruined.

If Psy really is involved, then the whole scandal could garner more international interest, hopefully causing Seungri and co. to get harsher punishment.

No. 33650

>[+259, -11] People keep telling all the celebrities under YG to "escape them" but ㅋㅋㅋ Psy, Taeyang, Black Pink, Kang Dong Won… I bet they all knew what has been going on in YG ㅋㅋㅋ I really just think they're all the same people who should be canceled ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I'm still amazed that Psy is as popular as he is today considering all of his past scandals ㅋㅋ

No. 33656

The problem with G-Idle is that Soyeon is too integral to the whole setup. You remove her and you start to see the how some of the members completely lack the presence and talent she has, such as Shuhua.

With CLC I feel the only one that lacks presence at times is Seunghee, but she's still good at singing. I like both CLC and G-Idle's songs but performance wise I much rather watch CLC.
