lol YG is so mad that they made a statement just to formally disavow her
who knows where she ever trained! who knows if she ever trained at all! who knows if she was a deep cover agent raised in the siberian wilderness just for this reason!

>>>“‘A,’ the person known as the informant, was never a trainee under YG Entertainment. Though we have made requests to media outlets to make corrections, wrong information continues to be reported. Therefore, we would like to reaffirm the fact [that ‘A’ was never a YG trainee] once more through this official statement.”

Ot, but the girl in this video (the blond one) is ADORA, the only female producer from bighit.

She's gaining attention recently, of course, with ratmys getting obsessed with everything and anything bighit or bts related.

My question is, is it really natural for kpop fans to be so into a group that they were also following around producers? I mean, last time they also sperged on a good-looking (??) male producer's ig who apparently received gifts from SUGA and guess what?… gay fanfictions…

Is this normal? I mean people mentions about this "Teddy" too who is good at plagiarizing stuff but I doubt the same degree of digging info of their personal lives is the same and comparable with bighit producers.

Anon is referring to P-Nation, Psy’s new agency featuring Jessi, Hyuna, and E’Dawn. Despite their… flaws… they’re the most popular idol acts actively breaking “rules” and they’re all under his power and influence.
PSY isn’t an angel but it seems like he sold out to the right people in positions of power and has enough clout to survive any scandals by association himself. After Gangnam Style, he performed for every head of state and wealthy business man that would have him, which has ensured his financial independence and significant status. I bet he pocketed more from those gigs than the sum of his earnings from the song alone.
With YG effectively gone, and no other “rebellious “ idol brand on the market ready to compete, Psy could have a whole stable of successful alternatives to every exactly the same idol product, and ones with more “Western” attitudes with a better chance of crossing over. Ifans think Hyuna and EDawn are super cute in love, and that Jessi is outspoken and courageous instead of tacky.
If he promotes them right and fans vote with their wallets, they could pull the same gutpunch that BTS ifans pulled, with a better chance of being taken seriously by western media—there hasn’t been a hit like GS in years, and his reputation precedes him.

she’s always had big cheekbones, i don’t think filler is the culprit here, more like her horrible jaw shave made her whole face look unbalanced and even more puffy. it’s a shame because i used to think she had such a unique face, she was pretty in an unconventional way. now she just looks botched like every other idol.

anon you're responding to; thanks for some more info.

while i definitely don't see any three of them making waves in the music industry anymore due to their washed up-ness and hard-to-sell appearances and attitude, i can see him squeezing out any profit left that they can make from their own fans and then adding on more artists to his roster that could potentially do what you are thinking. his agency is fairly young so we will have to see how it works out. old gen artists like bi rain and a few others have made their own agencies and had artists under it which completely flopped, but if psy is as powerful and has as much money as you say he does, i can see him turning a profit with his.

CL’s weight gain kind of destroyed any opportunity she would have for a comeback. Scooter Braun wanted “Go Away” CL, not a fat chick. Jeremy Scott and all the other gross intl brands Asians are so obsessed with loved her until she couldn’t fit their clothes any more. I think everyone believed she could’ve crossed over before her body transformed. I wish it wasn’t that way but… it’s the critical thread and a kpop reality. Scooter could’ve made it work if she had the vocal chops to do the “big girl, big voice” thing and a better grasp of English, but she doesn’t. Psy could make it happen, but only if she truly o w n e d her body/intl failure and made it her schtick, like Jessi/Hyuna/edawn are doing with their own scandals and eccentricities. Covering it up or trying to fake that she was the same old clearly isn’t working for her.

Jessi does really well on mainstream variety, even if it’s just to shock and annoy people by being a Jersey girl. She’s taken relatively seriously as a rapper (comparer to like Irene, lol) and stands alone as a unique and memorable soloist, with no real competition

Hyuna has been looked at favorably in comparison to Sunmi on every dumb pann ranking I’ve seen, which amazes me considering the crazy difference between their discography and life choices, but go figure—she’s still a force to be reckoned with.

EDawn is a little more unpredictable, but I would bet money that if he crashes and burns with Hyuna and wrote himself an overly earnest breakup/heartbreak album (a la cry me a river), that shit would sell like hotcakes and obsessive fans would cream themselves trying to figure out all the hidden meanings and signals in everything from his clothes to his liner notes, watching like hawks as he awkwardly stands besides Hyuna at awards ceremonies… inevitable joint agency appearances…

What? She was thin for years and never debuted, her weight is hardly the main issue. Being skinny isn't even that important in the US (she was what? a size 12 at most?), and she lost most of lbs by now anyways. Plus she speaks fluent English. It's obvious that YG is the one holding her back from doing anything in the US, not her weight. She's not super talented but just being Asian and ~thicc~ would kinda make her stand out in the American pop scene if they just let her to do her thing with some generic trap producer.

Netizens Bring Up Two Past Incidents Involving BLACKPINK To Criticize YG Entertainment
>https://www.kpopmap.com/netizens-bring-up-two-past-incidents-involving-blackpink-to-criticize-yg-entertainment/

On a popular online community in South Korea, some netizens have been dragging even BLACKPINK down at the moment. The post states:

“Examples That Show YG Entertainment’s True Way Of Thinking & Behavior”

Of course, for BLACKPINK fans, this is unfortunate as the girl group actually has nothing to do with the current scandals surrounding YG Entertainment, but the public has been revisiting past incidents related to them that were issues during the time in South Korea.

One of them was the story of how a YG manager parked a van that was escorting BLACKPINK member Jennie to a restaurant,  in a no-parking zone. When asked to park somewhere else, the manager refused and stated that he would just pay the fine for parking in a no-parking zone.

The second past issue that they brought up was when a BLACKPINK manager pushed an elderly man out of the way because he was walking towards them and the girl group on the crosswalk.

"Do they even need it" is the real question. Its not like idols do complex choreo that needs them to be as flexible as a gymnast or a ballerina. Flailing their arms and side stepping as well as twerking and hip-shakes are the usual stuff in their choreos. Nothig complex that even non-flexible fans can cover them in youtube. Plus you do stretches to be injury free… but from what I see, their tearing tendons and ligaments deliberately.

Honestly, I think it was just for the 'I practiced and suffered as a trainee' flare or they were just plain sadistic.

So this idol from some lesser known group cosplayed as a character and got some backlash because it was considered inappropriate.
She's super popular with men cause of her body so all men jumped out and started defending her and blaming the hate on ~jealous feminists~.
They called hwasa all kinds of names just cause they found her ugly but when a pretty girl does it it's welcomed.
Ok I expect that from woman-hating Korean men but the nb comment section makes me wanna drink bleach. They say shit about feminists, and they sound exactly like those male Korean commenters. Is that site infested with libfems and tra's?

Honestly I was thinking of Seolhyuns in particular, and while agree that hers is more extreme, I think the only reason that it is, is because she is obviously pushing her tits up. Seolhyun didnt use padding or anything and thats the only reason her looks any less "vulgar" in comparison. So I really just dont understand why an idol can wear an outfit in a video or a performance but isnt allowed to wear that same style of outfit at an event. Its just silly that its even a controversy to me. Its the same when people were mad at Joy or whoever for wearing a short skirt to one, when Twice was having a comeback wearing the EXACT same outfits in their performances at the time.

Moon hee joon joined the "superman is back" and is apparently getting backlash for it. First, because he already stated before that he wanted to keep his family life a secret. And second, because of fans thinking he is just using his family on the show for money and to restore his ugly reputation. I mean, Yulhee is now being praised after hiding her pregnancy simply because people were all "uwu her baby is cute, you are forgiven" after her joining a reality show with her husband.

Anyway, I was horrified seeing his face. He looks like a hybrid of a lesbian and a gay man if that is even possible. His hairstlye reminds me of the "let me speak to your manager" meme and did he tattoo his lip? His lips looks tattooed.

Plus it's just evil to milk your own kid so you can restore your reputation, especially after he stated his discomfort about people looking up his wife's name on search engines, just a year ago. The troll should be more consistent about his decision to keep his life private.

About his looks, he reminds me of Jimin a lot. Not only they look alike, they also have the same prickish, attention-whoring attitude. To be fair, H.O.T were a group of visual holes except for Kangta.

Why are Exo fans dumb enough to suck it up to Lay? They're so delusional, none of the chinese members ever cared about Exo and their fans, and he does not give a fuck about you either. There can't be one Exo post or video without retards screeching about "OT8 cockroaches!1!1". Korean fans already gave up on him long ago - only ifans still insist that he's secretly the bestest friends with the other members. They'd be dumb af if they wouldn't hate him, they trained and worked all those years only for the chinese members to bail - or just never participate in anything like Lay does.

Lay acts as if he's the 2nd Michael Jackson in China… I don't think anybody could dislike Xiumin (probably the only idol who's never done anything shady), but D.O. is annoying too. He could at least try a Little bit to hide that he hates being an idol so much. If he was a women, everbody would (rightfully) call him an ungrateful bitch. Nobody forced him to become and idol and he also wouldn't have made it otherwise.

This mv is a mix of every motif and trope used in kpop and its disgusting. Usually I like RV's music videos because they're aesthetic and stick to one concept, but this one is all over the place. Every possible style of clothing in an unappealing blend of colors, trashy special effects, green screen, cute, "sexy", and even elegant imagery are thrown together within frames. Also those filler moments with POV roller coaster shots were so trashy. I guess that's what SM was going for though.

YG Artists Currently Thinking About Looking For Different Agencies Shows One Possible End Game Scenario For The Agency

JUNE 20, 2019

South Korean news agency Dispatch has recently released a news report saying that some YG artists are currently thinking of leaving the agency.

The news comes amidst several scandal that YG Entertainment has recently been linked to, including former iKON member B.I’s attempted purchase of LSD, alleged embezzlement, and alleged solicitation of prostitutes for business investors.

According reports from Dispatch, an industry insider stated:

“After scandals alleging that several YG idols were involved with drugs, the public’s view on the agency has inevitably become worse. Right now is a stage where actors who must maintain their image and reputation, to seriously consider things.”

The insider has also claimed that four unnamed K-Pop stars are currently thinking of looking for a different agency. While termination of contracts for any of these stars is highly unlikely, the insider has stated that some are avoiding the subject of contract renewal.

Many South Korean netizens have expressed that their idol groups or favorite stars were better off in a different agency. And it is indeed a reasonable stance for them given the current bad publicity that YG Entertainment has been receiving, which is why fans should probably ask themselves if they are fans of the idols or YG Entertainment? We’re quite certain that it is the former, and under that assumption, they should probably then ask if YG Entertainment is the best place for their idols to be at.

In addition, a petition has also recently been made to the government by the public, demanding that YG Entertainment activities be put to a halt.

>>"On June 20, media outlet 'Dispatch' reported in an exclusive article that former trainee Han Seo Hee was sent away to the U.S. for approximately 3 months, per YG Entertainment's coercion back in December of 2016."


So, it is revealed that Han soo hee wasn't the one who seduced T.O.P. like any defensive fangirl claims it to be…

And, YG funded her trip to America to keep her from ruining BB comeback.

Also, that dude's main offense are the dozens of jokes about raping his daughter and ratmy's reaction is "how could a whitey understand? you're not allowed to have an opinion on this"…
The fact that she's a woman means nothing to them, I don't think there's a single white person who came in contact with bts who hasn't been dragged through the mud.

Why is Heechul so popular?
They always praise his appearance, say he's better looking than female idols or actresses, but he's actually aged a lot?
Everybody always says his singing is so underrated blah blah, when him and the rest of Super Junior are basically talentless.

Red Velvet is one of those groups that you think has trash songs until you listen to the b-sides. SM has always given them weird concepts and horrible title tracks, and I just don't get it.
Other groups have gone through weird eras but it seems like RV's weirdness never ends.
Is SM trying to sabotage them? Why not just take Sunny Side Up and make that the title track? I seriously don't understand it considering we all know that Bad Boy and Peek-a-Boo did super well and that RBB won ZERO music show awards.

Suga's aiming to look like an ana-twink nowadays.

He is quite sensitive about his looks afterall and even admitted to get depressed over it.

I want to know you guys opinions about this: do you think BTS is a B.A.P ripoff?
I used to listen to B.A.P when I was younger, and when I knew BTS (through this thread), their early concept immediatly reminded me of B.A.P's early concept; not only that, but there are some obvious lookalikes, like Youngjae who looks like a cross between Jin/Jimin, and Bang Yongguk who looks like a more attractive version of Rat. Am I insane?

Everything You Need To Know About Recent Sasaeng Break In Incident On EXO ChanYeol’s Officetel

>The Woman Who Was Inside ChanYeol’s Officetel Was A Staff Member Working With Him


SM Entertainment responded shortly after word got out that a woman was actually inside ChanYeol’s officetel. The agency stated that the woman was a staff member who was working with ChanYeol on various different projects, as the officetel space was actually being used as a studio and workplace.
>staff member
Was it really? I know agencies always try to cover up any dating scandal that isn't planned

>The Two Sasaengs Are Reportedly From China And Have Been Harassing ChanYeol For Some Time


ChanYeol has revealed that these two particular sasaengs from China have actually attempted to break in to his house several times. The female SM staff member who was present when the sasaengs continuously rang the doorbell and forcefully turned the door knob recorded the intercom video screen showing the sasaengs trying to get in, and reported it to the police.

>It’s Not Just Breaking & Entering That The Sasaengs Are Currently Being Questioned Over But Also Violating The Immigration Control Law Of South Korea


The sasaengs are currently being questioned additionally as news reports have revealed that they have actually violated the Immigration Control Law of South Korea. The two females are also the same sasaengs who harassed ChanYeol at airports in the past.

I know that the south korean government has been trying hard for 2 decades already to push the hallyu wave onto the rest of the world, but it really seems as if there's more than just that.
What were the chances of somebody who's not in the big 3 to hit it big, not only in Korea but in the rest of the world too? Zero.
Usually only american or latin music (due to being right next to the US and the huge amount of spanish speakers in the world) was popular, this has never happened before, just a short while ago south korea was a small, literally who?-Country and suddenly everybody is obsessed with it. Somebody really must be pulling the strings for BTS and trying to get them to reach fame no matter what. But why?

Well we know BTS totally lucked out on timing, which is basically everything in the entertainment industry nowadays. 1D was on what now seems to be permanent hiatus and 5sos were stagnant/fading out of relevancy at the time. It's not clear how or why BTS of all groups was the chosen one to do extremely well, but I think the government didn't push them at first, only after BTS proved to be the real deal in spreading hallyu. K-Pop was also a bit popular before 2014, not like anything we see today, but it was an internet niche.

people like a "started foom the bottom" story in general. pandering about mental health is very trendy now and teens find it relatable. it makes them think that they are deep because they don't listen to songs about sex, they listen to songs about real social issues!!

>east asian entertainment's popularity, ex-weebs with yellow fever and fujos who like gay asian stuff latching onto them

they're always on some "armys are our gfs uwu" shit, they never had a confirmed relationship, they come off as available and it appeals to socially inept femcels. they do a lot of "2 of us might be dating, we might come out one day, just wait!!" fanservice that attaches fujos to follow their content to see if there's an update on their gay babbiez.

>the latest top boy group aka 1D's absence and their fans finding another boy group to obsess over


>companies constantly releasing new content

they watch an interview, travel show, another interview, a vlive, an entertainment show, and they fall further into it and try to keep up with everything. who knew.

Not to fangirl in the critical thread, but I agree, Ailee blowing up would've made much more sense and been actually cool. She grew up in the US so the intl interviews would be smooth, she actually has talent, and her fanbase would be more diverse and inclusive of the GP than the Tumblr army variety.

Disappointing if true, but i'm not surprised. I'm not one of those people who is completely against streaming but it's undoubtedly wrecked music charts and awards for eternity. It's not just related to BTS or kpop, any semi-popular album can get an award or "record breaking" title for doing the absolute bare minimum, like extremely poor physical album sales and very short song legacies.

RV is not a performance group in my opinion–without the music show cameras, they look like a group at a high school talent show group of friends with Seulgi being that one member who has dance/sang her whole life.

I'm not an RV stan but I'm so disgusted bc Sunny Side Up also looks so much better in terms of choreography and outfits. Why the FUCK didn't SM just use this as their title track?

I don't normally advocate for plastic surgery but I think if anyone would benefit from a chin implant, it'd be him. Even a dorito chin implant would be better than how he currently looks.
He has apparently had a nose job before which makes me wonder why the fuck he's still so goddamn ugly.

SM have always been the best when they went with their rather unconventional, experimental sounds and didn't follow the latest US trends. Now they seem more desperate for US recognition that's why the change in sounds.They think any shitty edm song will end up being liked. Just go back to giving them songs like dumb dumb.

>they already have a fandom name

(Beckies)
>they are using sns exactly like how bts used them
(interacting with fans thru sns prior to debut/ 'members replies fans themselves for 'we are genuine idols who cares for our fans' effect)
>they came from a small company that came out of nowhere
(so they can use the 'we are underdogs' strategy to gain pity points from gullible fans who is always in for sob-stories)
>They were already making a buzz for the bad "rumors"

I'm curious to see how this will work… specially since they were a girl group and rarely do a girlgroup get the same amount of obssessive fans. I'm probably stretching, but I think this is the "formula" that made bts successful and someone figured it out. Plus, the company didn't even have an office and was called out for being a scam because of that. I wouldn't be surprised if one of this days, we'll find out its one of big4 companies sister/subsidiary company.

The middle one gives me Korean Nikolas Cruz vibes and the one on the right looks like a blobfish.

It really is a miracle, it's the year 2019 and a boy group with absolutely basic music, from a small mostly irrelevant country, who possesses neither talent nor looks nor charisma (or the ability to speak the global lingua franca) and whose shady past gets shielded by everybody is supposed to be the top of the international music industry.

Wow they are becoming even more brazen.

But that's just ridiculous. The one on the left seems to come from the same pedobait factory as WY and makes really punchable facial expressions. The show would be better without Starship involvement. I mean they'd lose Soyou. But that's not much of a loss because she's a terrible vocal coach and just an overall unpleasant person.

Funny thing is that is not their name or even their official abbreviation. Nationalistic knetz and BTS fans made it up in order to give them a reason to hate the group and accuse them of copying -besides being a hiphop influenced group with 7 members (because BTS apparently owns both hiphop and the number 7).

Does anyone else feel like BigHit and BTS don't really want true success in America, just bragging rights back home? I'm sure they know that a Korean boy band isn't going to be a hit with the GP if they don't speak English, and that Korean idol training strips them of their genuine personalities, which is really important to American audiences. Their team sets them up to do interviews but obviously screens the questions beforehand and even makes Billboard or whatever participate in Aegyo bullshit like holding puppies. BTS did not pave the way - PSY did, with an organic hit and a goofy charismatic presence that Americans genuinely liked. It's not like BigHit is unaware of this. Which leads me to believe that true American success is not the end goal, and that's A) really stupid because it's the biggest music market in the world but I wouldn't put it past such a nationalistic country to not care about that and B) making the American ARMYs look even more desperate and pathetic because they're being used for clout.

Unlikely. Koreans are racist as fuck.

They will, just to end up flopping in a year or two. These companies never learn I swear. I think Lisa's popularity is due to her charisma and personality more than her being a non east asian in the kpop industry, even though the latter plays a huge factor too. Other thai girls weren't so lucky.

More companies should learn from SM in this case. They stopped debuting non east asian when Isak and Jiyeon failed in 2002 (with Isak being 100% german and fluent in Korean, even though she could pass for a hapa). Non east asian artists just couldn't get the same chance in korea as they could in japan (crystal kay for example). If they insist on debuting as a soloist they should try japan instead. They won't get as much international exposure in japan but it's a good bet to have a stable career.

Yet her stans were the absolute worst and ruined the fandom. She didnt speak Korean but thought everybody should bend to her whim to accommodate her.

At that time the korean gp found it weird and annoying for a foreigner to be performing using their precious language, thus they were never popular. After InJ, Isak was famous for MCing and her guest appearances on gag shows (because foreigners were only useful for this kind of show lmao). Jiyeon became a member of CSJH The Grace (the supposed female version of DBSK), SM focused more on Jiyeon and let Isak did backstage things until 2012 I think.

>Just proves once again that even fitting all their beauty standards won't be enough.

People only started to be more accepting one kpop became an international phenomenon. Even so, they still have very strict standards to what they call pretty in foreigners. They praise Somi and Nancy for their looks but shit on them daily just because they gain weight, look old or something when they're just jealous they don't look like them. If Isak were to debut in recent years, I'm sure the public would give a fuck too because she actually fits their beauty standards.

>I wonder why they allowed her to perform though, that chinese member of Super Junior was forced to wear a mask, because they couldn't stand his foreign features (or so he/his fans claim) and here.

I think they only let her because it was SM, and it was such a new concept. They only had 2 to 5 stage performances. Even Shinvi had more.

Netizens ripped chocolat apart too calling all the members ugly except tia.
Even the fully korean member got pushed to the side in favor of her because she fit the ~pretty half white~ girl style.
They also sexualized her just like somi and eventually when it became clear the group was going nowhere, the other girls went back to america/europe and tia stayed and got mc/radio/variety jobs. Luckily Melanie and Julienne seem happy now away from idol life. While Tia still desperately hangs on to her attempts to stay famous.

She gets hated on by both sides. Many toxic Korean kpop fans can't shame her for plastic surgery cause her "desirable" features are natural so they're bitter and comment on her "white genes", and some international fans hate her for that too but more often it's because this girl has no discernible talent which she should have considering the immense popularity she has. Many jyp stans (cringe) also bombarded her with hate comments after she left the company saying she ~betrayed~ jyp.
But she still has a huge Korean and international fan base, otherwise she wouldn't have come that far.

Cat and Dog is a shit song whatever the case but the English version is utterly incomprehensible which is fatal for a song with a trap sound. BigHit has no sense of quality control. They should've debuted a group full of Korean-Americans, which would've been the best opportunity to cash in on BTS American and British stans. As it goes, not many armies give a fuck about this brother group. It's not even like looks or singing ability are that important for idols at this point. The members all look bland with no edge either

Dr. Feelgood by Rania remains the only comprehensible English version in kpop (since Jooyi for whatever reason understands English diction)

I see the appeal of BTS and them having completely different apperances, like you're able to tell the difference between them all and the personalities for fans to latch onto. But, TXT has nothing going for them lmao. They're far from being the "next" BTS.

Big Hit should have either debuted a girl group with a vibe similar to BTS, but they're all Korean Americans. (They could've done the same thing with boys as well). And continued with their cinematic approach like BTS' HYYH era, but no, the money that they're clearly getting from America says otherwise.

SM tried it to a certain extent w Shinee… Hate or love JH/Onew/Key’s voices, they can sing live w power.

But—despite the fact that the only less talented member is Minho—they exerted all their effort into Taemin’s solo career despite JH writing/singing his own music. If anything, it felt like the really vocally talented members were just holding space for Taemin until he got his shit together.

I think now that you can auto tune live vocals, all this effort is a waste of time and money, but it also means you never get voices that sound at all like the record in nugu groups—When you hear them with a backing track and a mic that isn’t pitch corrected, it sounds like two different people.

op— point 2 was more in reference to how he was treated but SM. afaik, SM never pressured or properly promoted his individual songwriting endeavors. it lee hi got “breathe” the same way iu got “gloomy clock”—he played the demo for her as a friend. he would show up to foreign songwriting sessions without asking because he wasn’t “supposed” to. SM wasn’t going out of their way to support his career at all, he was just really prolific in spite of them.

even having a sweet spot for taemin, you have to admit that almost everything interesting about him is completely manufactured for that purpose by SM. his dance skill being ~the best~ (when key is probably on his level), his androgynous concepts (now i think he's doing it willingly, but they were definitely forced at the beginning), and his variety personality were all carefully and deliberately crafted by A Team. without his members or the intense coaching he had later on, he had the same boring/naive personality as everyone who throws themselves into training as an elementary schooler without living a real life.

SM and LSM in particular desperately wanted/wants him to succeed. key said they were having individual meetings with taemin about his solo by ring ding dong. jonghyun and key were both more interesting on their own because they made themselves interesting; taemin is just ~trying his best~ and shit.

sn: taemin's western press is starting to pick up. he did an interview for allure us (??) a few months ago. everyone else in shinee is dead or in the army, so no competition there. SM has primed him for a Rain status crossover forever. idk when he goes to the army, but he can't have more than one good year.

with all that money, time, and effort… do you think he'll actually make it? will withdrawing ratmys pivot to this dancing kween once their boys are in the actual army? or is he ~too kpop~ to succeed with the children?

This may sound repetitive, but I really can't understand why people love and support kpop when it reeks of nationalism. It's literally funded by the government for that reason. For example, I saw someone say she saw a director at sm at a event recently, and he said that the whole purpose of kpop is to spread ~our amazing korean culture~, and he said that's been their main and sole plan from hot to now. Like some anons were saying about bighit, they (kpop as a whole) care more about bragging rights and national pride than anything else

"During a speech at the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2011, Lee said he coined the term "cultural technology" about fourteen years prior, when S.M. Entertainment decided to promote its K-pop artists to all of Asia.
In the late 1990s, Lee and his colleagues created a manual on cultural technology, which specified the steps needed to popularize K-pop artists outside South Korea.

"The manual, which all S.M. employees are instructed to learn, explains when to bring in foreign composers, producers, and choreographers; what chord progressions to use in what country; the precise color of eyeshadow a performer should wear in a particular country; the exact hand gestures he or she should make; and the camera angles to be used in the videos (a three-hundred-and-sixty-degree group shot to open the video, followed by a montage of individual closeups)," according to The New Yorker."

When bts gets individual instagram accounts the difference in popularity will become even more obvious.

I wasn't that deep into it but I think these photos first came up because Kai's orientation was called into question, not Taemin's. Like, why does Kai have a nonstop slew of hetero dating scandals when it's such a financial risk.
I think the general consensus was that the dating scandals were a cover up for something (government activity or fraud), but that beards set up to protect Kai's precious manly image sounds more like unlikely fangirl conspiracies.
If it was all for Taemin however… The fact that there is no milk for his personal life and he "got married" is suspicious, combined with his in-company favoritism and flaming idol fanboys… (puts on tinfoil beret)

Because they want a group they can assign roles too. If a group contains all talented vocalists, it will ruin the purpose of a boy/girl group. Plus, usually vocalists cannot dance or rap well so they gotta find other people who can fit the roles. Also it's hard to find vocalists who are also good looking, look at Suju KRY (Suju's best vocalists) for example. Yesung was always the ugly member who could sing, Ryeowook wasn't popular because of his looks before the surgery, Kyuhyun was the only one who stood out but he couldn't fucking dance.

Mamamoo without Moonbyul would be a group of talented vocalists, Hwasa could do both singing and rap, but the company wanted to add some character so they added Moonbyul into the group. Same with Vromance (their brother group). They're all talented vocalists but they lack talents in other areas such as rapping and dancing (+ visual) so they just come off as awkward and nobody really knows them. To sum up, a group of talented vocalists should become wedding singers instead because they simply won't sell in the kpop industry.

Kpop groups (especially from small companies) are ungrateful whiny bitches who don't acknowledge their own fans just because they're not Korean. If you saw the tweet of Purplebeck that I posted above, it's obvious that they're worried about not having Korean fans. They'd rather have a small group of Korean fans rather than a big international fanbase, when it's really the latter who keep them alive kek.

On the other hand, international fans are dumb for stanning those bitches. At this point they should know better that kpop companies always discriminate ifans, no matter how big the company or the group gets. Take a look at bts/bigshit for example. The big 3 only became the big 3 because they're much better at handling their international exposure. I'm not saying they're the best but like it or not, it's true. Idk what's actually going on, whether their artists actually hate performing for foreigners or not, but the big 3 are much better at hiding it even if it's true.

exposure means shit if no one's actually buying anything

loona is a great example of this. they have more int fans than korean but haven't even sold 100k albums. you'd think they'd be making bank but they're not. spent too much time pandering to stan twitter types than pulling in a profit
those mv's and youtube views count for nothing if no one's actually buying their stuff.

in ateez's case i think it really is smarter to appease to native fans or else they'll end up like loona, all hype and broke. please the people that are close and desperate and the money will flow organically

Well I saw posts similar to it being made here so I didn't think there'd be a problem if I did. I just found it interesting that jk after all his surgeries looks like him.
Btw, does anyone remember (if they knew about it at the time) when armies were saying that yamada attended a bts fanmeet in japan a few years back and that v was his bias? He then came out and said that it was all lies and that he would never attend a fan meet and that while bts were having that fanmeet he was at home watching a movie. It was really funny and a lot of armies got mad and called him arrogant for that. I still don't know why they spread those rumors in the first place though

Nta but this might be why they are disliked in Korea.

>They're 100 days old as a group. And have a sold out USA tour. That is insane to me. Also, I fear for them and their fans because they have a company that isn't great. KQ has another kpop group (the one they were actually established to take care of and promote). KQ ENT is a fairly new-ish name. They renamed themselves to that about 2 years ago but before that, they were known as Seven Seasons (aka Block B's company).


>Yeeeeeep, my only hope lies in the fact that the old CEO killed himself (I AM NOT HAPPY OR GLORIFYING THAT HE DID. IM JUST SAYING. OBVIOUSLY NOW THERES NEW MANAGEMENT.)


>at least i think thats right? Block b had a past company and a current company, and all i know is the past company CEO killed himself when they banded up to sue him. Anyhow we can do nothing but watch and aee how they treat such obvious kings, its going well so far but it could be a ruseee


>ATEEZ is under the company that was created after Block B sued and left their first company. Up until Babylon joined the company, they were solely known as Seven Seasons. When Babylon (the first non-Block B artist) joined, they rebranded themselves as KQ Entertainment but it's still the same company. They have Block B (minus Zico), Babylon, Ateez, and a few other artists. I feel like it should be a very big warning sign when the biggest artist who was given complete freedom and control decided to leave the company and start his own though.

I find that the majority of Koreans love it when other countries (especially European or North American) embrace their culture and appear on their shows. That's why, for a small country like south Korea, they sure have many shows with foreigners: Abnormal summit, problematic men, I can see your voice and so many more. They just don't like seeing non-Koreans outshine Koreans on tv. Those people who complain about them are imo the minority.

This doesn't mean that Joy is neccessarily lying though, to me she looks like a big girl, but maybe the taller members of SNSD were simply told to lower the height on their profiles to seem more "approachable" to men, that wouldn't be unheard of.

Bitch, if your job is go perform you have to perform well every single time. Jennie is a spoiled rich cunt, proven bully (yes my friend made excuses about that too) who hasn't had to work hard a day in her life yet gets all the praise. People have made the most ridiculous excuses for her laziness (my faves were "her dad is sick" and "she's on her period") but we all know the only plausible ones are the facts she doesn't give a fuck and is an ana skelly who probably doesn't have any energy. Oh yeah, this same friend also thinks the "maybe if you stanned Loona you wouldn't have gotten raped/your mother wouldn't have died" etc tweets are hilarious.

This might be a reach but it looks like g-idle's new concept is chola/ghetto chic, which seems in poor taste. One concept mimicking a culture, okay they didn't know what they were doing w/e. But every song they've had is riding on the coattails of some ~exotic~ culture. Sorry for the sjw sperg

its not even just soyeon. its like cube split hyunas image between her and soojin. soyeon mimics hyunas rapping style, often dyes her hair blonde, tries to do that intimidating/sexy/badass expression a lot, and is shown as a "focal" of the group. soojin has the same black hair and big red lips combo that hyuna also sports, plus she has the same under eye mole. soojins also pushed as the "sexy" member. hell, they gave her the same hairstyle/color in hann that hyuna had in volume up. its painfully obvious what cube is doing. they even made yeeun from clc rap like hyuna too. a lot of clc's songs lately sound like songs 4minute would have gotten if they didnt disband (hobgoblin, black dress, no, me) me sounds like another version of hate.

here's an unpopular opinion: it doesn't bother me if netizens or i-fans itt pick on kpop stars appearances, they bring it on themselves by not being talented enough to take the focus off of their image. look at western stars, some of them are normal looking as shit and even if they aren't, they usually have some kind of unique talent that people focus on. i only ever see female pop stars praised for their beauty because they're actually talented, even the less attractive ones like gaga are celebrated. in kpop they are all hollow shells so beauty can't come from the inside out. and they all sing and dance the fucking same so the only way to distinguish them is to pick apart their features. ok rant over

I'm not wking but people will still find certain celebrities ugly whether they are extremely talented or not. It's inevitable. Talent is not going to save anyone from criticism on their looks esp kpop idols. Koreans are to shallow and obessed with beauty to give a flying fuck about talent.

this is how you create an ouroboros of labels seeking out looks over talent and pushing people into surgery and shit. nitpicking appearances past a certain point is stupid all it does is force women into anachan diets and get botched surgery.

>i only ever see female pop stars praised for their beauty because they're actually talented


what are you talking about, theres loads of singers and celebrities who are more beautiful than they are talented. gaga also got surgery and was hated on to hell and back for her appearance anyway, but she had a crazy gimmick to make up for it, which notice after awhile people stopped caring for her?

Going after looks leads to insecure young adults botching up their faces and then you'll be posting in here calling them gross wax figures.

Also don't be a western sperg. Ariana gets shat on for enunciation, Taylor used to get accused of only writing break up songs, Gaga was more known for her over the top looks and gay pandering than her songs.

A long time ago nobody gave a fuck about "nitpicking" or a little blogposting and it was fun. Now nothing but discussing sexism, slave contracts and how sorry you feel for the ones who decide to botch their face is allowed anymore by the lolcow thought police (and I don't mean the mods).

Eh i don't think it's right to suicide-shame someone. Despite it (the trial) having no evidence of happening, we don't know if she was really depressed or if she really did try to kill herself cause we can't proof that she didn't either. She's probably trying to shed some light on what's happening in the entertainment industry, yet people like you give no fuck because she didn't really die. Remember that suicide is a real issue in korea. If jonghyun failed to die or something he would probably be shamed too. I don't think hara is gaining any benefit from that story, she just won't be able to gain back her popularity no matter what she does, except if she dies in a suicide really. Don't be so hateful.

Okay I am one of those anons you mentioned. I found this on netizenbuzz.

>That’s true though, FYI that’s really a show between her & her manager , they work together for this show , even the police, doctor and paramedic said she’s not in dangerous situations at all and the first thing she did in hospital was giving EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW and following marijuana queen han soohee with her secret IG , she did this for attention and sympathy after her image was ruined bcs her marijuana post & her sex scandal. She fooled you all !


If it's true then shame on her lmao. Other artists with real mental issues are struggling but these people just make fun of it. I remember Son Hoyoung (a g.o.d member) did try to commit suicide in public a few years back and he took a long hiatus after that. Coming back in a month is kinda suspicious, I agree. Although she's still a victim of that blackmail tape and abuse.

Its still too tinfoil for me. Ofc its plausible especially for someone as unknown as her to do this, but if there's anything we should be giving idols the benefit of the doubt for its suicide.

Yeah, because a comment of some korean rando that nb decided to translate means anything.
Maybe she likes Han Seohee because of the same reason we like her as well? She debuted when she was like 15, maybe she's glad all these men are finally getting exposed?
And she's not coming back either, she just signed with a japanese agency, she could be resting at home, her manager gave her a quick call and she accepted. That could be it.

Seriously what's wrong with you guys? That's a 4chan-tier level of "edgyness".
It doesn't happen often that we have so much proof about a scandal. Her doctor's report showed that she was raped, yet she had to defend herseld in court for scratching said rapist. Nobody would be okay after that and immediately plot a staged suicide attempt for even more attention. She's well off thanks to her success in Japan.

They were formed on a reality television show in 2015 and this song features French Montana – who I can guarantee you had no idea who MONSTER X were and probably still has no idea and I would presume he just took the paycheck for his 29 second verse. Literally, it’s 29 seconds. MONSTER X featuring French Montana, the song is ‘WHO DO U LOVE?'”.
