Rant about Kpop, its creepy fandoms, and/or its fucked up industry. Or just nitpick some idols.

What's annoying is the utter lack of names or stronger hints. Ex-trainees or people like Grace probably have NDAs that they can't afford to violate, what kind of contract are these bitches under?
Name names or STFU
As much as armys don't want to hear it, English is still a universal language and to be truly global an artist will just have to suck it up and sing in English. Shakira and Enrique Iglesias always have English and Spanish versions of each song, for example.
One Direction will always be more famous because their musical output is in English and they dressed like normal young men, even hyper-conservative countries didn't seem to have much of a problem with them

This girl was a trainee in SM but she quit and returned to the UK. Idk but maybe good for her? She'd be kept in the dungeon and would be too old to debut in SM's next gg otherwise. Wendy should have done the same thing lol.
Ratmys already made their career happen through spamming now they wanna shove tj them down American's throats. Just…stop. If the gp likes someone's music they'll get their rightful exposure and success no matter what but trying to brainwash people (like they brainwashed themselves) into thinking bts' music is innovative and complex, created by 7 genius adonises ain't fucking it.
They're just a boy band
…everyone who dedicates their life to them and sits on twitter, wasting time swooning over them and defending them is beyond pathetic.
bighit said they are a korean group so they will keep singing in korean
that's fair of them in my opinion

i also buy the anxiety excuse. it seems like she was just a pretty girl who lucked out. her training period was less than a year or something? the other members have probably been conditioned to suppress their mental health issues after a ~trainee period~ that consisted of years of emotional and verbal abuse.
the salty and cold comments from knetz make me chuckle tho. ofc this is somehow related to her being japanese.>>42315
i don't particularly dislike twice, but their potential downfall is going to be milky. jyp is going to discard them as soon as one of his other groups get successful. like wonder girls 2.0. i wonder how desperate some of the members will get when this happens.
She looks like she's got hepatitis or sunm not even going to jk
Also did any of these girls make some money? Cause theres like a thousand of them and JYP contracts suck. It seems they r in a lot of trouble cause aint none of them talented/charismatic/pretty enough to have a solo career. Maybe the chinese if they go back to china idk they all faded to be youtubers

Still not comprehending how or why BTS/Kpop is so popular. It honestly just seems so regressive in it's methods. Why is it still being so heavily consumed?
I wonder why there aren't more groups like 2PM out anymore. They're definitely better-looking than most K-pop guy groups, but I guess it's because they lack the androgynous physique that appeals more to teenage girls/Tumblr fakebois?>>42306
They'll make any excuse to dismiss BTS's laziness and bigotry that they wouldn't do for another group.>>42317
From what I've seen , Sana seems to enjoy the attention from entertaining people much more than Mina (or at least is better at pretending that she does). Momo gets to live out her longheld Koreaboo dreams dancing on stage. I feel like Momo and Sana kinda knew what they were getting into and seem to enjoy being entertainers, whereas Mina never had any of that in her and it's all crashing down now.

>>42327>they lack the androgynous physique that appeals more to teenage girls/tumblr fakebois
But tumblr sjw aren't really a thing in Korea, so why did they suddenly think that looking like an aunty is what appeals to young girls? When Exo and BTS debuted, they weren't like this too, so what started this?

i would sue if i came across one of these pictures
Something just happened after around 2013 and everyone slowly started wearing makeup that's three shades lighter and red lips-straight up like a cheap vampire makeup.
I mean the obsession with paleness and all was always there but i feel like no darker idol could ever debut now. I don't care about guys wearing makeup but seeing all these idol shows it feels like people are now attracted to guys who all look like androgynous high schoolers (how can anyone tell the guys from the pic apart?)
Also the obsession with youthfulness is especially creepy when it comes to the underage girls because they are openly sexualized and seen as women whereas the boys mostly do aegyo or some shit. It wouldn't be that creepy if all their fans were kids or teens but they're not.

Well, no, Tumblr types aren't really a thing but much of K-pop's audience are people in Westernized countries (specifically Tumblr types). Also BTS and EXO started out twinky, what are you even talking about?
I may be alone on this but I actually think she looks better with the Korean look as opposed to trying to look like an IG baddie. IG baddie looks are cringey in general but ABGs are even worse.>>42301
Loona Odd Eye Circle has a song in English that actually sounds like gibberish. I was excited to see it bc I don't speak Korean but you can't even understand their English and the lyrics are pretty whack so what's the point…>>42307
Twice is fucked once one of them gets into a dating scandal, attitude controversy, or any sort of trouble that could violate their image–god forbid one of them gets caught with drugs. Their image is being sweet, hardworking girl next doors, and one slip-up of actually being women in their 20s could cause their insane male fanbase to turn on them. Their fanbase is largely men, who will likely get bored of them once they've aged enough anyways.>>42327
Isn't Monsta X basically third-gen 2PM?>>42340
Idols were wearing white foundation and lip tint before 2013 though. I think the real issue is that they all wear colored contacts now which is super creepy with the white face and bright lips. They seriously look like Party City catalog models.
I also think they've become more obsessed with "whiteness" whereas everything back then wasn't so filtered. I used to not be surprised by idols complexions and looks, but nowadays I'm always shocked when I see pictures of Kpop idols taken by US media since they're actually shorter and tanner than their fansites and photographers want you to think. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it seems like their obsession with whiteness has worsened for some reason.
One comment said that they never saw a grown woman crying like this in public at the airport and I agree, that's so weird, maybe it's really more than just anxiety. You can't just go from being in front of the camera 24/7 (and dating right after debut) to this mess.
The other members were either crying because they were really her friends or are simply worried about their own future now.
And it's true that japanese members usually never "make trouble", always only the chinese ones. Sana and Momo are probably happy that they can live their kboo dream while being completely talentless.https://pann-choa.blogspot.com/2019/08/enter-talk-sm-released-official.html?m=1
Wolf was very different, same for most of bts earlier concepts.
> [enter-talk] SM RELEASED AN OFFICIAL STATEMENTㅋㅋㅋ> Basically saying that NCT failed> Norebang, food, etc. The businesses that were opened recklessly in attempt to diversify keep earning deficits.> Moreover, the NCT project, which was heavily invested in, have experienced a complete failure in terms of return on investments. (One of the main target of discontentment in shareholders have been NCT)> The 3 biggest shareholders which include KB Asset Management have been demanding them to focus on the singer's business while sorting out the majority of the business. They're also requesting Lee Sooman who took 46% of SM's profit to merge with Like Agency. They're requesting them to redistribute the shares.> SM refused everything after examining the claimsㄷㄷㄷ
Apparently this isn't a valid
claim but I think many of us would agree with the comment below:> 1. [+77, -72]
I feel like SM is becoming more and more of a failure in the entertainment infustry. EXO is at the end of their capacity, RV is also becoming frail, the next generation's female idols' trainees' faces are so bad so they ended up pushing it back while NCT just failed. I seriously wonder if they just gave up on the entertainment industry
In the end, SM’s policy is to own parts of everyone else—YG, JYP, cube, Avex, Johnny’s—via publishing rights or financial shares, so that they profit no matter what, and being sponsored by the govt so that they’re always secure. Setting up their competitors to succeed based on their own strategy and then financially benefitting from their success is part of LSM’s while “cultural technology” strategy.
Honestly, it seems like atm SM is more focused on the smaller successes of their solo projects, hoping that one of them will evolve into the next BoA or Rain, or something resembling a western pop solo act that will be cheaper to produce and give off the appearance of artistic integrity.
Sulli can’t outperform BTS or Twice , but she managed to get headlines this year independent of any discussion of f(x), etc…
SM is probably gonna drop all their groups over the next few enlistment cycles and focus completely on internal collabs and memorable soloits. I’m sure a bunch of members are shaking for good reason..
>>42349>[+30, -0] If they didn't start this fcking NCT project, they would've already been chewing at the top right now. Although I got to know them first because of the NCT project, if they only decided to release the BOSS team, they would've been doing as well as EXO right now, and they're also fcking handsome… They were too greedy
This. Boss lineup + Ten would've been way more successful than the convoluted mess nct is today. Sm makes it very clear that they prefer those members over the others anyways.
I think nct prematurely peaked with Boss.

She looks like Quasimodo to me tbh. Her jaw is big and her eyes are too wide apart but you can tell they try to compensate that by keeping her brows too close together. Her wide nose doesn’t help.

SM is running out of ideas
>According to various reports from South Korean news agencies, SM Entertainment is currently working on their very own ultimate group.
>The upcoming ultimate boy group is reported to be made up of the agency’s top groups, SHINee, EXO, NCT, and WayV. Not much detail has been given except that all of the members who will be part of this new group are busy preparing for promotions.
Kai, Taemin, Mark, Baekhyun, Lucas, Ten, Taeyong

And they're making it a permanent group. Everyone is livid about this except for select nctfags who solo stan one of the four members involved because their tards need the free promo. Sm's fucking stocks dropped after the news got out lmao their song better be good and the nct members better not get a single line if they want this to even come close to going according to keikaku. I bet this sounded like a foolproof idea on paper.

>>42431>they're making it a permanent group
What??? Shinee members are in the army and nobody gives a fuck about nct anyway, but what about the rest of exo? Kai and taemin fit together well if they do something dance heavy, but baekhyun is way more suited for ballads (and just had a solo album), so how is that supposed to work out?
Pic related comment is kind of true, sm is probably losing a lot of money with nct, despite focusing so heavily on them, so now they're panicking and came up with this shit idea. If I were them, I'd just break up all their contracts and throw them out lol
No, Kai is actually one of the most unpopular exo members.https://www.koreaboo.com/news/magazine-sales-reveal-which-exo-members-are-actually-the-most-popular/
Some people commented that Baekyun's album sold 500k times - meaning way more than all of nct lol If I were him I'd be so pissed, he enlists next year and now has to do this.
Samefag* Keep in mind sasaengs and solo stans like buying 826382737283 albums and magazines in order to see their fav. Baekhyun has the most solo fans and would drop thousands just to see him.
Anyways, Kai and Taemin subunit would have worked okay by itself why did they have to add those NCT faggots there? they should just burn their contracts or transfer the groups to different companies. It's ridiculous how desperate they are. I hope SMNGG is the next SNSD, or else RIP SM.
>>42437>If I were them, I'd just break up all their contracts and throw them out lol
What else is there to
do at this point? They fucked up big time with Nct and I genuinely believe it's too late to unfuck it. They can keep WayV and a handful of the Korean members for Nct U but they should throw everyone else in the dungeon permanently or fire them all together. They're more trouble than they're worth.
I'm surprised they didn't include Jaehyun. He's way more popular in sk than those other nct members>>42449
Do they fire idols? I bet some of them wish they could be fired instead of waiting until their contract is over lmao

both stray kids and itzy have a lot of potential. he just needs to hire a vocal coach for the girls and keep bang chan out of controversies.

no, everyone says "he just lost his chubby cheeks uwu~"
tbh, i kinda believed it at first considering everyone else in the group looks fairly ps-free.
i had a dream where i was hanging out with her and made a "your mom" joke and made her cry and i felt super bad lol
anyway, she really should have stayed in korea(no1curr)
they already tried this back in the day
does anybody remember that group they did with kai, taemin, luhan and hyoyeon i think?

Aren’t Stray Kids kinda of flopping though? I barely hear about them and don’t know any member aside from Felix due to this thread. Got 7 are also considered flops, but I knew who the members were and could name some songs from them at least—and I didn’t even try to follow them closely.
It’s honestly kinda sad that there isn’t really isn’t a strong, emerging boy group yet that can compete against BTS in terms of popularity at the moment. Got 7 could have been on a similar level to BTS but they kept releasing unlistenable songs. EXO was even more popular than BTS years ago but they’re definitely becoming less relevant over the past couple of years. Why are these new guy groups like NCT, TXT and Stray Kids such flops?

Am I the only one who finds shots like this disturbing in a sexual way?
Not really, Stray Kids are doing pretty decent. Their last comeback flopped hard though.
As for NCT, nobody even bothers with them because of their infinite member system and rotational groups. And their comebacks are really hit or miss in terms of songs and concepts.
TXT will always be in BTS's shadow. They're really uninspired, BH relies on ratmies to keep them going.
And both of these groups are really spoiled from the beginning imo.
Yeah, it's really sad that probably no boy group will be able to reach BTS level of fame before the K-pop hype dies off in the west.
I'm late but wtf is going on with her voice??? It just doesn't sound like her
But she looks good at least

No idea why people keep trying to make "uwu you don't like kpop?" into a racism thing.
Non-anglo european artists, african artists, arabian artists etc don't really get a chance in the US either. Spanish music is only popular because 1) South America is right next to the US and 2) there are lots of hispanic people in the US. There rarely are any singers or groups who are able to make it if the don't sing in English. At the top of my head I can only think of Rammstein who got successful despite them not making music in either English or Spanish. All the other foreigners are usually just one hit wonders.
Kpop stans need to stop complaining, it's not like their countless music award shows ever feature non-koreans either.

he has more potential in china, bigger country = bigger market. he also gets treated like a god because he has kpop idol clout and can be used by the government to promote ~chinese values~. i'm pretty sure he's filthy rich already, but he can cement his status as one of china's largest celebrities if he stays there and gets into acting or something. i don't see any reasons for why he should return to sk where he gets treated like a second class citizen and doesn't even get the same amount of salary as the rest of exo.

bts haven't properly "made it" in the us, and taehuyng the raging autist surely isn't the reason for the success they have achieved in the west. they just happen to have a big fanbase in the us (who other artists and tv hosts pander to so they can gain profit and boost their own numbers/popularity). and, like other kpop artists, bts have made a handful of tv show appearances to show how kooky korean boybands are with their makeup and ~crazy~ colored hair.

Why are you stalking her youtube channel? From what I can see, she's posted dance covers like that before.
>why's she still trying to live her koreaboo fantasy?
Because her company is promoting her? She signed a contract which means she has obligations that she can't/won't just stop just because bratty kboos like you don't approve of her.
An idol from a popular group will probably leave, maybe there will be an unlikely couple that will trigger
everyone, and lastly, more male idols will be exposed for being dirty pigs. You know, just the usual.

I just wanna scroll through my insta feed without seeing shit like this.
I'm late but I'm not gonna lie, I'm interested in what they will come out with. There's a teeny tiny bit of potential there but I bet SM will throw out another zimzalabim.
I think one rapper would have been enough, there's too many dancers and Kai being the cringiest one should be the one to go. Meanwhile Lucas is untalented in every way and looks like a whole ass frog on top of that.
Why not add another singer? Is Lucas really the most popular chinese member? I thought it was Winwin, but they're both useless anyway so what's the difference.

I still see no appeal for Hitomi. But I'm glad she's the most natural out of the entire group.
I saw rumors that her nervous breakdown is the result of something bad that happened to her at an awards show involving a male idol. Obviously kpop rumors mean next to nothing, it's just sad that I have no trouble believing it.>>42560>>42557
the only bts members I saw getting organic attention from the public were RM (I watched the BBMAs where they performed Fake Love with some friends and they all laughed out loud when he started talking during their speech because they were expecting his voice to be high-pitched kek) Jungkook (because of his abs), and Jhope a year before when they were doing a bunch of televised shows in the US because he's arguably the best showman out of the group and that's what people actually pay attention to.
Nta but that anon wasn't being jealous of her lanachan. >>42542
I think her debut flopped. It was a boring song with fucked up sound mixing.
>>42522>Most successful single is Cherry Bomb
Koreans actually have good taste for once.>>42566>They're not even that big in Korea.
Agree that they won't perform at the bbmas anytime soon, but what do you define as big? They're the 3rd biggest group after BTS and EXO.
Winwin has even less talent than Lucas and no1curr about any of the Wayv members aside from those two and Ten
I could see sm giving them a shitty song just because they thought they could get away with it tbh
Lana takes kboo twitter fags self esteems and turns it to ash. Don't know why anyone would be against that. Unless.. there were twitter fags here>>42618

Honestly I feel like their companies enable them to not eat and she might be a fainter, I could see her ducking out for feeling like she might pass out.
I’m not trying to WK her don’t get me wrong, but I feel its more reputation friendly that she’s anxious rather than anything to do with eating.
Unrelated but came originally to post this pic today from a cringe-y “idols that could be twins” thread, Jimin is starting to look like that Brazilian dude who got surgery to “look korean”.
(Oops deleted original post, for some reason I thought the topic was Jennie for some reason)
Most people are against SM's super group but nevertheless, the amount of times I read "Exo/Taeminnie
loves his juniors, he wants to collab with them!"…
This is what's so unique about kpop stans, fans of artists from other countries would never allow "jokes" like >>42527
but instead of standing up for their faves, kpoppies just try to spin it into something that their idol decided themself.>Blackpink is forced to starve themselves into skeleton-mode? - They're naturally thin!>Underage girls are pressured into inappropriate concepts? - They want that! How dare you criticise a woman's way of expressing herself!>2 adult men are forced to do cringy and unrealistic fanservice? - They're a couple!>Oppar clearly get's overworked and has to do stuff no sane person would want to do, while definitely being underpaid? - He wants that too!
Prime example being V treating fans like this >>42651
or Jungkook's baby gif, they see him being miserable yet spin it around into something else.

I still follow some of the members of Stellar on Instagram and Jesus Christ why would you edit yourself that pale? Especially when your hand is also kind of in the picture still and is a completely different colour, there’s wanting to be pale and then there’s wanting to look like a corpse
If anything they gave her free promo through all these twitter posts and YouTube rants. If they hadn't made such a big deal out of it her videos wouldn't have gotten all these views.
They don't know that even bad publicity is still publicity.

ITZY's fans rearranging ICY is reminding me of when people got rid of one of the Hello Venus member's parts in the prechorus of Wiggle Wiggle, reuploaded it, and then straight-up called it the "better version" lmaoooo >>42608
Are you insane? Cherry Bomb is terrible just like the rest of their title tracks.
I scrolled down and funnily enough, NCT's b-sides (which aren't promoted at all) chart much higher than their title tracks–some within the Top 20. Unless the company is run by actual children, SM should be able to see and understand that the b-sides are doing better than the title tracks; why they don't try to be more public friendly is beyond me–they're flopping so hard.
I used to think Jin was childish for getting upset when V criticized him on Burn the Stage but now I get it. I'd be pissed if this fucking retard tried to talk down to me, too.>>42712>>42713

this youtuber/tumblr popular girl Michelle Moe posted a video discussing colorism in Asia and mentioned bts and now armys on twitter are hounding her with suicide bait and threatening to jump her at concerts. Michelle is an army herself but she's honest about not liking all of their music so ratmys think she's secretly an ""anti"" who's just using them for clout. pic related is them calling her an animal while she's just minding her business at a concert. and if you check the replies on the tweet several people took creepy candids of her and are threatening to jump her. all this because she said she prefers their slower songs to their edm shit and criticized RM for making fun of Jhope's "black" skin kek. sage because this is old milk and ratmys being insane isn't exactly news, just thought i'd add to the pile of proof that they should all be put in an asylum.
the pain of having those slits cut seems unbearable to me
i dont understand how koreans recover so fast from that sort of thing
old milk but it just goes to show how mentally defective armpits are. Just because she doesn't spew shit like they do, they'd all come to the conclusion that "she's an anti >:( protecc our bby boiz uwu"
I've never encountered a fan as crazy as the ones on twitter or tumblr. people i know who are interested in them can actually laugh at their ridiculous songs and plastic faces. Not a single one of them has ever been triggered
. no1curr but i guess incel ratmy's who are retarded enough to dedicate themselvs to 7 twinky men and send death threats to anyone who doesn't dickride them must be socially inept and never leaves the house (Just goes to show that all of them must be fakebois or teens with depression uwu).

I don't know why she's the most hyped member in Korea when (I'm putting this nicely cause she's young) she's not one of the best looking idols out there to exist. I find their leader and another girl from that group way more attractive but I've figured out why they love her. It's cause she's the youngest and that, most of the time, makes them popular.
I find the comments about her body and all really unsettling.

This is James Bay's song let it go which was released 4 years ago. When I heard Rose made a cover of this I knew that her fans will search the song. Now, it's flooded with comments like these. I really hate when kpop fans ruin the comments section of random songs like "x brought me here". Nobody cares, not everybody knows who x is.
Me neither. SK is not really experimental with their opinion on the perfect face and I really can´t see it in her. They are all young and there are too much other young girls in the industry, so what about her? It makes me uncomfortable to watch. But that is not only her, but with every underaged and overly sexy styled girl. She is not reaching 18, she is 15… >>42779
One can only hope they will at least listen to the whole song, so the artist gets some coin… Don't know what trend this is. Super annoying. But the same like the stupid "first comment"-bs. People want comments and likes without thinking about comment.

Honestly, I don't understand all the Nayeon hate in the kpop threads. She doesn't look that bad, it's only her profile that looks odd but her face is not that bad. Even before her plastic surgery I think she looked better than the average Korean. I also don't think she looks like a plastic monster or anything, she looks like she's got work done, yes but she's not Chung Hwa tier and she didn't have as much work as people think. She's only had her nose and fillers. Call me a Nayeon stan or whatever but it is a reach to call her ugly or botched when she's not even the ugliest in Twice Jongyeon, Chaeyeon and Dahyun are uglier than her.
In Korea the prettiest members of twice are considered to be Tzuyu, Mina, and Nayeon.
But I think Nayeon gets so much hate because she always brags about being beautiful and when sixteen aired she was the oldest and the only one who debuted already clearly modified.

Should have stopped messing with her face when it was in its PD101 stage. It looked more "idol-esque" while still not being a huge departure from her natural appearance.>>42774
I think it's because Chungha is relatively scandal-free and noticeably has more stage presence compared to most other K-pop idols. The thing though is that most K-pop idols don't really have the great amount of stage presence you'd expect from someone performing 24/7 already. Just watch fancams where the cameras don't try to capture them in the best way possible and you'll see some noticeable differences when comparing the two. Chungha isn't exceptional in that regarded but she sticks out when comparing other idols. >>42783>Twice Jongyeon, Chaeyeon and Dahyun are uglier than her.
Seems to be an unpopular opinion but I really don't get why Chaeyoung is considered an "ugly" member. She's much prettier than the other two mentioned as well as Jihyo and Nayeon. Personal preferences aside she fits into Asian beauty standards well (big doe-like eyes, upturned nose with a prominent bridge, face that's on the smaller side). I think maybe people don't really see it because her eye folds make her look a little cross-eyed sometimes and she has a prominent beauty mark, but I don't think they take away too much.

Majorly unpopular opinion but imo Dahyun is the cutest member. Her nose is legit perfection. I don’t care if she isn’t talented because let’s face it, none of Twice is actually talented lmfao.
She's always smiling and does a lot of aegyo and shit so she comes off as fun, especially since the fans are mostly male and they're into those kinds of girls whereas the less popular members tend to just be themselves and don't overdo the childish shit.
I feel like female idols with even a hint of "strong" personality become unattractive to to them.
File: 1564938806623.jpg (710.48 KB, 1080x1343, chaetard.jpg)
She keeps posting pictures of herself looking like an actual retard though and should probably stop
To me the side profile of a nose doesn't mean shit when the nose itself looks off in a front-facing photo. it looks like she has a totally big and flat nose in other photos. Dahyun's so average-looking to me but has the privilege of having lighter skin in a culture that puts that shit on a pedestal.>>42794
She looks fine here and isn't going out of her way to make stupid meme face or whatever. I definitely think her looking a little cross-eyed is really the only reason why people consider her ugly.

The only pretty twice members is tzuyu - but she "makes up" for that by having the personality of a wet towel.
No idea how anybody could consider Chaeyoung or the likes pretty. Dahyun is super popular on 4chan, go figure… Having "big eyes" (thanks to lenses, makeup, and making retarded faces) alone is not enough to fit korean beauty standards, if the rest of your face is an undefined blob.
You literally can't tell the difference between their faces and the faces of those underage looking 3rd/4th generation flop boy group members.
4chan isnt a good indicator of popularity considering it only takes one or two posters to continuously obsessively force a handful of ugly/boring idols
one from a few years ago used to post Sunny from SNSD constantly and you would think she was popular because she was shitted in every thread but nah

Seeing as most of us are former fans, why did you stop liking kpop?
As a teen I always listened to girl groups with cute concepts, because they were a sweet alternative to sexier american music.
I liked their outfits, tried to copy their hair and makeup, and judging by how friendly they were on variety shows I always thought they're called "idols" because their supposed to be rolemodels for young girls, they embodied the type of person you want to be friends with or who'd you want as your older sister.
But with the rise of the popularity of youtube and live performances being uploaded there I inevitably found out that their korean fandoms consisted of mostly men in their 30s, 40s or 50s. I found that so shocking and offputting, no idea how girl group stans nowadays are able to deal with this.
How could I have known that e.g. pic related coupled with bubbly music and the girls acting like they're besties is something that adult men like?

I seriously wonder the extent of the stuff Chaeyeon has had done. She admitted to 'eye surgery in middle school' but I believe that like Irene she got a nasal extension very early on and something done to her jaw (not necessarily bone shaving). It's mind boggling how it's completely changed the entire orientation of her face to be much sharper looking
Believe this same topic's been brought up before but haven't shared my story.
Got into the genre as a pre-teen girl and have slowly started disliking it starting a couple of years ago. It was due to the same superficial reasons most people would in that male idols played up to that unobtainable boyfriend fantasy, and the girl group members were like pretty dolls you could admire and see as sister-types. The sound of K-pop is catchy and "bubbly" too so it was easy to turn on some K-pop tracks and start feeling a bit more energized.
I think getting into a relationship with an actual normal guy and exploring other genres of music outside of K-pop really made me realize how disgustingly calculated the "personalities" of idols are. Getting into other genres like rock and indie shit made me realize how derivative and just bad lots of K-pop songs are. Learning more about how the industry operates behind the smoke and mirrors has also made me feel bad. Ashamedly I'll still listen to some songs with earbuds on or only around people who would be able to tolerate it, since I still like the sound of pop music.

Wendy's honestly no more racist than that of a privileged upper-class girl who grew up in a white and Asian bubble…which she is. I'm 100% sure that most K-pop idols are more racist than she is but they're just better at hiding it.
Also she was never that pretty but she was at least average-looking before. That image you shared was shooped to death. >pic related is much closer to her natural appearance.
There hasn't been any memorable kpop songs this year. Seems like the public is more into solos these days.
Doesn't seem like a clear front runner for Song of the Year so far.
honestly being on /hr/ and the /mu/ kpop threads way back before /ot/ was even a board was a trippy experience

Are you blind? She literally looks like an inbred rat. Even with her mouth closed she has those terrible caterpillar brows and incel-tier chin. Not to mention the botched nose where you can perpetually see up into her nostrils. She's one of the ugliest idols of all time.

Back in the day a KAra member said she liked Jimin and he's one of the most popular members in Korea. Jungkook can make random shit sell out just by showing it in a picture. It's delusional to think female idols aren't after the biggest male idols in the country even if just for the bag. Even the ugly ones probably get play.
Jimin got into rumors with Seulgi and Jungkook seems to have rumors with every female idol alive, but the most prominent rumors on pann were Lovelyz Yein and Twice Nayeon. There was also a weird thing where it came out his brother new IU. Weibo said he dated BlackPink's Rose in 2018. There was a rumor somewhere about V and BlackPink's Jisoo and before then V and Irene but who knows.
Suga also had that rumor with that one singer he produced for.
literally every single member of kara is too pretty and cool for jimin, even the semi retarded one
so that hurts my heart to hear
Wendy did herself in. She did that nonsense not only once… but TWICE. She’s a fucking dumbass. lmao.
SM is talking about how they want to “push” RV in the States. Wendy could have been you know the for sure English ambassador and rep because she’s lived over on that side before. Good thing that Yeri’s English is alright and she’s actually kind of more likeable imo.
I always wonder, how do these idols even get to know each other if they don't have instagram? They can't just talk backstage at music shows, so how do they do that?
Also, why ruin your career just for some fling? Rather stay single and make bank for as long as possible and then date publicly than take risks.
They all likely have secret accounts and can DM each other on the low. Top found Han So Hee's number through a friend. It's really not hard. They usually communicate through staff like coordis, hair dressers etc. since they often go to the same places and get serviced by the same people. Plus don't they send notes and whatever else at these events?
I mean if an FT Island member can get a Laboum member pregnant any random pairing can happen at any time. As for why they get together, it's like the Olympics where you have lots of stressed pretty people (pretty according to their weird ass standards) all in one place of course they're gonna fuck around.
former idols have said they do get to meet at events and music stages but only very briefly, and out of the view of their managers
also, private hotel/club renting is huge in korea amongst celebs
i think one of the crayon pop girls said they go to gay clubs as well so that their managers dont follow them

twice's first dating scandal…i wonder how they'll fare
Posted before finishing, but I want to add I remember a judge on Produce 101 S1 who mentioned that a lot of her male celebrity (adult) friends asked her for the numbers of various trainees on the show (most of whom were underage or barely of age) to contact. So I imagine it's a lot of "I'm interested in so and so can you give me her/his number?"
I also remember one of those former nugu idols had an English video about how this sort of thing happens. At music shows they slip notes in sandwhiches or under CDs when they visit people and give their CDs away. Alex from Rania said a male idol hit her up while they were all on stage for the encore (but they were in the back so I guess nobody could see them). Which reminds me of a video where a 2pm member (I think Wooyoung) asked a T-ara member out to eat at some award show while they were all on stage. These mfuckers are horny and desperate asf But they probably wouldn't need to do all that much if they were allowed to date publicly.
One clc member said she never heard of someone getting a number via a sandwich/cds. I think that practice is a bit outdated when u have instagram and kkt at hand.>>42867
Most of these rumours with ""power couples"" are fake because male idols usually date down = trainees, D list idols; and female idols try to date up = actors and musicians deemed as artists.
I look forward to SK's implosion in the wake of this as much as anyone else here, but in all likelihood this is just the latest in LM's attempts to smear him.>>42861
Why? If we're talking solely about within SK, then Kang Daniel is bigger than all of BTS combined.

Such is the logic in these anti kpop threads. I forget sometimes that the average IQ here is not that much higher than twitter.>>42904>from what I've seen most of them are mad at dispatch, not dahyun and daniel

And guess who's gonna profit from that?>bighit is the only scandalfree company, bangtan are all good and fully korean boys who are bringing honor to our country, let's support them!!!
What did they do to deserve so much luck?
Kang Daniel also is probably rich af too by now. Sometimes people really fall into mass-delusion when it comes to certain idols, no matter how unattractive and talentless they might be. I watched pd 101 and I don't understand why someone like ong seongwo for example didn't get that treatment instead.
A dude with that face is currently one of the most popular idols out there, followed by none other than the bts members. That says a lot.
They're all gonna buy buildings soon and then they're set for life no matter how bad they are at their job or how little they contribute to their group.
I really don't blame the public for getting frustrated, especially when certain idols keep complaining just to be seen with an expensive ass car a few months later.

It’s been a while since hyuna posted an anachan pic, her hand looks so weird?
Here's a standard:
Kpop idols who thought being in that industry is a good thing and who proceeded to botch themselves with PS and fillers
and diet to death and then wear padding (aka all of them) are all ugly and we are allowed to criticize
PLEASE stop getting your panties in a twist because your bias is being ripped to death rightly
i'm guessing that's loose skin from rapid weight loss. plus the hand sign she's doing is stretching her skin even more >>42931
here's a standard: let people argue over who's ugly or not and let the mods intervene when it starts to derail. not every idol with plastic surgery looks fugly and we can debate that.
>>42932>debate over who's ugly or not
But what's fun about wk some rich plastic idol? Non-korean, non-idol cows get ripped into for much less.https://netizenbuzz.blogspot.com/2019/08/dispatch-reveals-kang-daniel-and-twices.html
Seems like for once the girl isn't the one who receives the most hate. I know that this might be an unpopular opinion, but I understand why fans get so mad about is, asking somebody in his teens or 20s to not date is really not that horrible.>[+382, -10] His fans helped him sell 450,000 albums and he pays them back with news of a relationship, I feel bad for his fans>[+336, -10] He's really stupid. All he had to do was wait a bit and he'd be able to afford several more buildings at his age but he blew it all over a relationship.>[+286, -1] Talk about a mental breakdown for his fans… they were all happy that he came back after a rough period but he's in a relationship.. ㅋㅋ amazing>[+3,756, -113] Wow, his fans practically sold their souls to buy up his albums only to be greeted with this article>[+1,886, -40] Wow… I'm more shocked that Kang Daniel can afford to live in the UN village than the scandal>[+1,041, -55] It's fine for Jihyo to be dating since she's worked super hard at her career already ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I just think she can do better
I mean, what else are they paying for? His amazing voice and beautfiful face? kek
Him being so rich is absolutely not justified.
Also, judging by how average korean men and celebrity males all over the world act, him having a famous gf doesn't mean he won't still fuck prostitutes too…
Pretty much all dating reveals go to shit unless you have a very Hyuna-like image or are part of a 'senior' group (and even that can be problematic
How is Twice gonna try to queer-bait now tho? Borderline kissing and groping on the stage won't look the same.

Netizens Tilt Heads After Knowing Dispatch Only Released the Dating Report of Kang Daniel and Jihyo Over 2 Weeks Since It's First Writtenhttps://www.kstarlive.com/news/2019/08/05/netizens-tilt-heads-after-knowing-dispatch-only-released-the-report-of-kang-daniel-and-jihyo-s-dating-over-2-weeks-since-it-s-first-written-254462
Dispatch first wrote the article on July 20th.
On the morning of August 5th, Dispatch dropped the bomb, revealing photos of TWICE's Jihyo visiting Kang Daniel's house several times. Shortly after the report released, KONNECT Entertainment and JYP Entertainment confirmed that the two are indeed in a relationship. Nothing is wrong with the two dating each other but Netizens have found something's fishy about the issue.
It turned out that the article was first written on July 20th at 7:59 P.M KST – 5 days before Kang Daniel made his solo debut showcase. It took over 2 weeks before Dispatch has finally released the article to the public. Dispatch released the article after they made some revisions at 10:11 A.M.

No1curr but someone made a thread about how that girl in a bunny mask from the weird group pink fantasy is actually happy with her role despite having to hide her face all the time and to wear that awful mask even in hot weather. It's pathetic and just plain weird.https://mobile.twitter.com/ppaliwabwaa/status/1130752299939323904?s=20
Yeah plus fans have no idea what these idols are doing in private. Most of them have a bunch of older, rich people as sponsors so…
Some idols might be forced into this shit but some others would just do about anything to become rich and famous.
You'll never know how these people truly are so why waste that much money and energy on them anyway…
He is a moron, knowing CJ wants his blood and yet being incapable of don't date and lay down for a while.
The people who get caught usually are dumb to hide shit,the "charm" of the kpop idols that make the fans crazy is the damm fantasy of the images, is even worse that the guys who smoke. The people who hit big just has to be careful like 5 years and work 11 years in total and they can retire comfortably for the rest of their lives.
Did I miss something? What happened that they felt the need to let a dating scandal happen?
It feels suspicious and the pictures say nothing. Like with Jennie and Kai, but there was this idol school-thing and seungri-scandal happening, so it made sense they tried to cover this shit up.
But what is happening right now…?

Why would she do this
I mean all companies go for looks first so that's not surprising, but SM and YG do seem to give them some semblance of training while JYP just faps to them I guess>>42969
Holy shit that's Nana?! Her unique beauty is completely gone now. F
File: 1565032800531.jpg (38.65 KB, 500x722, 2ilmyxk.jpg)
A few days ago somebody wrote that Kai is put into that "super group" because he's one of the most popular Exo members - yet on the other hand nobody cared that he was dating Jennie. So, which one is it, is he popular or not?
I remember when he dated Krystal, both of them got massive hate. When Taemin and Naeun were on that fake marriage show fans even yelled at her while filming, so how come that everybody was so supportive of Jennie and now of Jihyo? She's in the biggest male pandering uwu group right now, one would think that her uncle fans would start burning her pictures etc, yet everybody only says she's too good for him.
On the one hand it feels as if the situation is getting better, on the other hand stuff like pic related would be impoosible now. Back then both Taemin and Hara were extremely popular, and 2pm and Snsd also did some "sexy" commercial together.

Don’t think anyone was suggesting she looks incredibly awful now—just that she looked better before and that surgery was unecessary.>>42988
Jihyo may have big eyes but really doesn’t fit Korean beauty standards aside from that. She’s also not really that attractive but has the advantage of having “exotic” features (for Koreans). Also this is just a personal gripe, but I thought it looked bad on her part when she joked about not wanting to get too dark in front of Tzuyu.
>>42972>yet everybody only says she's too good for him
The netizens that were saying that were female. The male fans are most likely screaming into the void as we speak.>>42993
Of course she is, she just looked better with her natural jawline.

I mean he's not just a regular rookie idol, anon. He was a fucking wanna one member, winner of pd101. Why wouldn't he have good money?>>43001
Jesus taeyong and jaehyun are the only ones who aren't completely busted. They all should've covered their faces with their hands like Yuta did in his pic.
File: 1565040661545.gif (6.28 MB, 480x270, KInX4MQ.gif)
cringe photoshoot, some of them do look pretty bad in the pics. the comments are hilarious though.
why are korean commenters so dramatic? while some farmers have impossible beauty standards, at least they don't get triggered
by seeing someone's natural skin, kek.
I reaaaally don't blame them though. His face must really be everywhere and if you're not a kpop fan or have watched produce you must be like why tf do I keep seeing this guy.
Nonetheless I don't think his fans are going to leave him. He'll leave her after a few months and then all the angry fans will slowly crawl back.
The rookie idols who came from wealthy upbringings and/or had financially successful releases since the beginning aren’t going to be poor. Daniel’s in that group. The rookie idols that don’t have those two things—which make up 90% of them—are indeed poor.>>43001
Who on their marketing team thought this concept would be a good idea? Might work for some conceptual art project but idol group promotion pics aren’t that. The concept is even stranger when you realize that the hands near their faces are their fellow members’.
That scandal keeps on giving. Daniel released a statement saying "I felt consoled through my fans". Lmao, I hope they turn into cows like Hyuna and Edawn. >Kang Daniel's neighbors reveal they saw Jihyo recycling soju bottles outside his home
Guess really rich people don't want ugly talentless "singers" living next to them.
>[+261, -4] Kids, the reality of your idols is outside of YouTube, and internet sites like Melon. In real life, he's living in the UN village, driving a Benz, promising his fans he loves them while dating right behind your backs. Just as much as these people are living true to their realities, you fans should too. Don't waste your money to fund their dates.>[+210, -11] An idol's job is to sell a fantasy and now that fantasy has shattered…>A pretty girlfriend, a nice house, a flashy car… I don't think the Kang Daniel who lived in the basement and dreamed of his debut exists anymore.> [+653, -17] He said so himself that he had a rough childhood, a tough training period, and was so poor that he had to drop out of high school. He said he dreamed of becoming a singer which is how he became a trainee. Then he debuted and started showing up in luxury brands, even explicitly stating which brands were his favorite (which made me go eh?????)… Now his career is nothing but up in the air, and he's more known for his scandals than not. He lost his roots too early. He lacks so much talent to be called an artist just yet. Should've waited to cause these scandals until he built himself up more.>>42999
Luckily there are a lot of fans realizing now that they need to stop always feeling so sorry for idols.>>43001
More than them obviously having bad skin like many young men, it's their face shape and features that look completely off. I wouldn't be able to recognize any of them.
So what he's from wanna one tho? Their contracts must be shitty. Also >>42998
the UN village condo is not his property it's just rented by his company. The mercedes must be leased too. Ia w some k netizens saying he seems sloppy and all about the lifestyle of the rich and the famous. His fame prolly went to his head and he's thinking he is some well established artist when he's being soon enough replaced by another Produce101 subproduct

Lmao, who allows idols to act? (and who allowed this bridge troll face to debut as an idol…)
Usually the super supportive ones are only trying to hide that they're hurt. I wish they would just admit to it, it's obvious that most kpop fans have a crush on an idol and seeing him/her with somebody else is bound to feel disappointing.
Ratmies do that too, I've already came across many post saying something like "To BTS future wives: please treat my boys well, they deserve the world!".

imo jihyo, chae, and the tomboy (i'm not writing out her name idk how to spell it) are leagues cuter than sana or Nayeon. I'm not trying to argue about it, it's just amusing in light of that earlier anon saying we need to set a "general standard" kek. I used to wonder why some girl groups have so many goddamn members but clearly it's so that there's something for everyone.>>43026

At this point I think that nothing is able to stop them anymore (seeing how jk was erased from any article about being with that guy who molested some girls…)
Bighit will do everything to ensure that they won't date. And while the others might get discreet high class prostitutes, jk seems stunted enough to not even do that.>>43030
So…she stopped being a muslima?
Where's your hijab? I thought listening to music is not halal? >>43032>yall really be
Where do you come from? lol
This is not a "rookie" he has been the #1 idol in Korea for the past 2 years.
When is his next album coming out? All this stuff about fans accepting him dating is meaningless until it comes to sales. I want to see if sales drop off a cliff (I think it will).
Nice attempt at racebaiting. There are plenty of good Asian rappers out there but none of them are going to be K-pop idols.>>43044

With this it is even more possible they just trying to deal wirh the SK-ban from Japan.
But to be completely honest here: I'm pretty disappointed. I kinda liked the drama when dating of two idols were considered a scandal and all went craycray.
I like SVT and even I will admit that this track is pretty bad. I feel like SVT's sound has been getting progressively worse over the past year.
Oh well. At least they can still be counted on for the dance practice and live performances to come.>>42956

He's super careful when it comes to dating, has never been caught before, do you really believe he'd constantly fawn over a much younger girl on tv for everybody to see, if this was really his gf?
He might or might not be gay, but that's just him playing up his otaku image. And while many farmers find it gross, in the end the girls he's hyping up do get more exposure or more screen time which is good for them. E.g. a girl from gfriend was in his mv when they were still unknown and later they were on a show, sleeping in heechul's apartment. Who'd allow that if it was known that he really is dating the girls he pretends to like? He has dozens of female idol friends, taking pictures means nothing.
I call bullshit.
I just wonder why it's twice who are somehow getting thrown under the bus for this Korea - Japan shit. At least with YG it was about legit really bad things.
listen momofag - nobody considers horse face cheek filler'd momo to be the best visual
all of them are busted looking now so no point of vIsUaL rAnKiNg you go do that on the general thread fag

Ugh they should just stop making their faces so botched. Suga's new jaw is unfortunate. Those implants really made him bloated. I dont think he shaved his jaw like other anons stated because his face seem bigger and i dont think that's just fat. He used to be ok looking. Same with jhope before any type of surgery. (i know suga hada jaw shave, but why put implants after that? The shaved jaw looked better than the one he has now?) no1curr anymore but its sad bighit keeps on butchering ok looking faces. Pic related this is his jaw now

>>43128>I feel like some of them are being pushed for this 'baby-faced' look to look younger or fit whatever the fuck the fans think of them.
Pretty ironic, seeing how Jk and V have wider jaws and are more popular.
I also noticed that it's mostly the older members who always get these retarded bowl cuts instead of an actual hairstyle with a parting.
He might not be gay, but he surely looks and acts like a massive fag.

Since i literally have nothing better to do i searched a pic with their names – cause I still dont know everyone's faces – to join this frivolous debate lolz
So yeah judging by this pic id say clearly momo mina tzuyu and sana are the cute ones. Momo and Sana stood out the most to me because momo has strong features - but on the other hand she resembles Ivanka Trump a bit in this pic?? - and Sana is serving qt looks as if she was starring in the korean version of Outlander.
Pic related cringey gif of twice doing some aegyo/oppaaaaaaannnn shit
Yeah so pretty much my opinion remains the same
Sana is indeed very pretty which doesn't justify per se her popularity since japanese line is basically on the same lvl. I guess she's one of those who panders to ahjussis and does p*do baity shit like Nayeon. Too bad for her cause she is legit pretty and could be doing better in life lolz
The other ones are a visual hole especially Nayeon.
I also thought Jihyo was more cute judging by the pics featured in the dating scandal articles

I think it's really pathetic that all the wealth coming into k-music from BTS, EXO or whatever's billions of dollars being made abroad and album sales is just fuelling the most generic shit imaginable like more audition shows and more bland ass music. In most countries when a music act does well abroad it paves the way for more experimentation, in Korea this seems to have worked in reverse
Man her lips honestly look so horrible whenever she uses a bright lipstick now.>>43489
It's always wild to see how generic all the kpop idols look.
On another note, whats happening with all of the Love Myself campaign money? According to wikipedia the campaign has raised something like KR₩ 2.4 billion yet most I found about the use of money is - young people encouraging 'authority figures' to end violence and essentially providing basic care to children (which doesn't even seem to be the point of the campaign lmao) and there's basically no statistics for it? I'm not shouting fraud or whatever, I just find the lack of stats for such a big campaign really odd
I know and then whenever there's any "controversies" in regards to (alleged) racism or discrimination they are all quick to insult everyone
in Japan and in other countries where groups make their coins.
They forget that most of their income come from these countries. Exo wouldn't have been as successful if it weren't for the Chinese fans, twice relies on their Japanese fans too and bts still exists because of American fans. International fans are fuelling this generic mediocrity.

Umji looks alot better recently. I can't tell if it's from surgery or weight loss, maybe both.
I don't think there's any fixing the Chae sisters faces/noses. I don't get why groups have to have some token ugly member.

I agree. She looks like an average girl that you'd hardly notice on the street, but the anon you're responding is suggesting she's Predator-tier ugly. Some of the anons in here are more nitpick-y and spergy about certain physical features than Korean netizens.
File: 1565203993054.png (1.47 MB, 906x1326, Juri_at_Rocket_Punch_Debut_Sho…)
I'm not sure but she does look a lot different than in her PD48 days, aside from that shitty hair extension. Now she just looks like a basic nugu idol, nothing that makes her stand out whatsoever.
I think it's just a publicity stunt to enhance k-pop's status in the West (especially since it means they can shill more artists). Ratmys are using the racist shit as an veneer for being mad the category exists because it means five other Korean groups are mentioned in the same breath as BTS. They don't even want TXT to win lol>>43573
It's a little sus that BigShit's flop are on there
Okay so after looking at this image, I'm more inclined to think that Juri got something done to her nose. The bridge seems more prominent although that could just be contouring serving its intended purpose.
Also what is it with K-pop and shitty hair extensions? They look more obvious more often than not as shown in the video. She should have just stuck with the short hair and maybe gotten some bangs to cover up her forehead better.
Yeah, those noses are already retouched for sure.>>43583
There aren't such injections. To make a nose smaller you have to take out some cartilage, and you can't do it without the good ol scalpel.

This group will totally flop though, there's already been like so many different GGs that have debuted this year that I can't even recall names despite keeping up with these threads.>>43501
I agree but Yujin from CLC looks even more like a rabbit AND she adds nothing to their group.>>43559
The videos of her performing with her hair in her face intentionally is the saddest thing I've ever seen (in kpop). She's definitely had some work done and I feel awful for her.

Why not just do a collab? Even if they release a good song+performance, which I doubt they will, the stans will still be at eachothers throats. Nct are major flops and exo stans are crazy.

"Avengers of KPOP" oh my god you can feel how smug he is about this idea, like he thinks it's the most genius thing ever.
So many ideas in kpop might sound good on paper, I could totally understand how someone in a meeting suggested taking members from other groups and making a 'super group'…but it should have been rejected. Like anon said >>43618
, why keep trying to push concepts that have failed before, just think of something new!
Also, these companies need to stop insisting on US promotion. They seem to think that just because western kpop fans are outspoken on social media, it'll mean groups will find fame in America. In reality the general public still doesn't care about kpop despite BTS, and having fans on twitter (who fake streaming numbers/views to make their faves look more popular) doesn't translate to ticket sales.

Also who the hell is dressing them? Why do some of them look like greasy casino guys from the early 2000s
Imagine being an nct member and having to sit in the audience and watch sm not pick you for the fuckin 'avengers of kpop' supergroup lmaoo. I bet they're really salty towards mark & taeyong especially.
I'm not sure if it's confirmed or not but I read that they're gonna debut with regular again, this time a remix. Regular isn't a good song and it already has three versions wtf is going on in sm's mind jfc
If I was kai or baekhyun I'd be beyond mad right now, that's so humiliating. The latter was successful in exo, in an exo sub group and as a solo artist, it's beyond obvious that he only needs to do this because nct is shit. I wonder if they tried to refuse, it's not like they could literally force them… >>43628

I feel like some of you guys are so used to nosejobs that a natural-looking nose looks huge or gross to you but at the same time….this look is rough.
They should keep her look more natural, though. Her charm is in looking "ordinary". The brows and coral lipstick are doing her dirty. Her nose may be her worst feature, but with dark hair she at least looks like a normal teenager.
Fuck I want to support her just because people call her ugly ngl, call it pity but I hope she is the ugly duckling that will be a swan. She almost gives me teen Lucy Liu vibes, let's hope she doesn't get beat with the botched stick before she's 30.>>43541
Ehhhh she's one of the more stable singers, it's obvious in the Dalla Dalla Encore in March when you watch the fancams-the rapping is complete shit. IMO they shouldn't even have a rapper at all.
The other girls will hopefully be allowed to sing lower soon, they're reaching out of their range and it's unfortunate because their live vocals could be much better otherwise.
This is the first time I've listened to Itzy, but the comments, in general, lean towards people supporting Chaeryeoung? Maybe people like her because they don't find her looks enviable.
Honestly, if SM had just called them a Subunit as companies usually do, nobody would be sperging this hard. Saying that they are a new group that's going to debut was obviously going to trigger
the fans of the original groups.
She's just a wannabe Ariana (or Kylie) with her babygirl-chic but without any talent. I remember watching her can't take my eyes off of you cover and it forever ruined that song for me but still, she was shouting that shit out off-key so confidently. She's only smiling when she's with American artists and when shes the center of attention.
Cl and GD became socialites too but they were never that pathetic and at least on stage they were always super passionate. Seems like she wanted to be a celebrity in America but this is the closest she'll ever get to that lol
Spoiled and entitled people who think they're high-class and thus too good for "ordinary" people and things don't deserve that kinda love and support tbh. I wonder when the rest of the girls get tired of her and it'll become noticeable.

As a Taemin fan (from fucking 10 years ago! sorry, but my middle school opinions still inform my anti/critical/milky attitude):
This is so not what I wanted. On any level. I was getting ready for so many embarrassing incarnations of a solo intl debut, including awful English and humiliating Ellen appearances and tasteless guest features dreamed up by an out of touch/old Korean executive…
But not this imitation BTS bullshit.
It’s so transparent and obnoxious.
Like, I was so ready to completely embarrass myself by supporting Taemin’s lame, low turn out US events and hoping his androgyny eventually gained some traction…
But I don’t want to see him in another fucking boy band.
This proves conclusively that the Big 3 are totally fallen apart beyond saving, and that hallyu will cannibalize itself completely in the next few years.

We are now creating that as a point of business. We want to create a synergy between their groups, them as solo acts, and the Super M group to create a big wave in this K-pop industry.”

it’s a possibility, given how hard some members of this group flame already
(maybe putting them in military jeapordy in the safe, warm embrace of an American fan base is their big strategy for success, and trying to juice some extra time out of baekhyun on the brink of enlistment)
but I doubt anyone at SM is that clever and marketing-savvy
My thirteen years old sister was telling me about a new girl in her class who's chinese and this hardcore army kboo says to her "too bad, if only you were korean we could've been friends."
These koreaboos are wild
This is already super cringey but I yet have to understand why scamyong and Lucas are in this? Lucas is irrelevant in China and the only thing he had going on for himself is his deep voice. Taeyong is also irritating af and isn't really good in anything besides dancing. He is literally the male, sm version of Jennie. He's like kai but at least kai comes from a successful group and is more relevant. >>43679
The second-hand embarrassment is strong in this one.
If you think Kai is useless, it doesn’t matter—Exo songs are always pretty reserved to the three main vocals and Kai is a dancer. He’s also a center of Exo, a group that has brought plenty of profit to SM. What has NCT done at all? They’re so nugu regardless of any talent, and Taeyong already had a shit image by debut bc he was a scammer. He’s really only attracted negative press to the group and he gets half the lines of the song whereas Kai has always been the main dancer with a few lines. I can rant here and say that NCT is into their third year and they still haven’t appealed to the GP. Exo and Shinee, which both had one hit by three years into their career, have worked their asses off since debut, people know it regardless of whether or not they hate/like them.
I’m not a stan of the three but imo it’s so pathetic that Taemin, Kai, and Baekhyun are now being used to pull the deadweight of the other members. Not just one or two, but four irrelevant deadweights who contribute nothing but failure. It’s worse for Taemin and then Baekhyun who have been promoting solo and are probably fucking exhausted from working to earn an actual profit for SM. Kai isn’t the most talented but he’s improved vocally in recent years though he’s really known for dancing. I only recently listened to their last album and was surprised to see that Kai went from literally screaming in their debut song to having actual parts as a decent subvocal. Compare that to Taeyong, a shitty rapper and singer, who has taken up the majority of NCT songs since debut and still only attracts negative attention.

Really nct-fag?? Kai is an established idol from a established group. Like it or not he already brings much more to the table just being from exo bc of all their loyal fans. Also Taeyong looks like a fucking alien and Kai is fuckable.
Pic related > taeyong being an ugly ass reptilian
I don't know why anybody would wk nct, they're a bunch of scrawny teen boys void of any charisma, there's nothing appealing about them to any sane normal woman. Some exo members at least have nice bodies. Think of it like the chippendales, ignore their mediocre faces and cringy expression and just appreciate fit adult men in revealing clothes lol
Secondly, nearly everybody in exo can
sing - especially in comparison to bts and blackpink. I have yet to see any "talent" coming from nct.
Exo isn't pushed into any non-asian countries, unlike bts, bp and nct, you can easily avoid them if you want. It's not like you live in korea and have to deal with crazed exo-ls irl.
And anything that pisses ratmies or blinks off is nice, even if it's another kpop group.
Plus many anons probably were shinee or exo dans when they were younger and therefore have a soft spot for them. Doesn't really matter though, nct is objectively shit.
And he talked shit about his victims
parents, something that is a big deal to koreans - but a non-issue to ifans.

Nctfags attempts at shilling their boys is embarrassing and useless. There are so many flops in kpop, but only you with your nct are so in denial about it.

Guess we should all try reacting like that the next time our boss complains about us getting absolutely shitty results despite them helping and pushing us all the time…
Nct fans sure love to play victim
even more than ratmies.
Of course it is. If you're ugly and have no talent yet want to debut, then you should also be blamed if you fail.
We've seen time and time again that even shitty songs are successful if the group is popular enough.
In a way sm entertainment is the real victim
: they were dumb enough to believe in them, they signed contracts with them and now have to endure a massive financial loss because nct failed to deliver.

Ratmys are trying to push an #arianagrandeisover hashtag because of some incident unrelated to them and insisting they're Ariana fans but their entire twitters are just BTS shit. Why are they increasingly doing this with EVERY female artist there is?https://twitter.com/kookiesnchimmy/status/1159605879643267075
this has to be one of the dumbest things I've read on here in awhile.>>43740
kpop fans overtake those hashtags every week with the same old shit. you'd think it would get boring eventually
I'm sorry obviously this is shitty behavior and Taeyong seems like a prick but this shit killed me, it reads like a copypasta>mwolago the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch?>>43722
isn't she pushing 30? she looks fine imo.

what’s up with all the exo-l autism today? your oppas are just as ugly and untalented as nct and bts.

Nctfags trying to convince that their flop faves are anywhere near exo, shinee and even bts lmao
SM deserves their current state but a part of me finds it sad just how far they've fallen. Golden era of Kpop was fun at least. But I agree that hallyu will cannabalize itself. Too oversaturated, too aggressive and misguided in their push for US fame, bad management, etc. etc.
And definitely Bighit will not be the savior of Kpop as Bang PD clearly wants to be. They're already f-ing up with BTS, TXT is a flop and some of the press releases they put out about how they're kpop gods feels delusional at best. It's gonna be a wrap for Kpop really soon.
However, I actually see movies/tv doing a lot better. We're seeing some Korean actors/actresses move over into Hollywood and some dramas on netflix. Kmovies are more prestigious in the West as well. Maybe Kpop's demise will be Kdramas/movies rise.
I read that he'd also frequently make hateful comments towards japanese people and curse them on the internet, like calling jp girls "ugly bitches," and saying the guys are otaku losers.
The otaku losers part cracks me up because this was coming from an angry friendless loner selling broken gundum toys online.
Anyway now he gets to make money in japan lol. Wonder if he outgrew that behavior
Anon, for the last time: BTS/Exo/Shinee/…>>>>>>>>>>NCT
It's not just Exo fans hating your boys, nobody likes them.
And you know why Kai looks like this? Because he's an actual adult. Men have beards, people will get wrinkles after some time. Not everybody can be a botoxed, fillered and jawshaven NCT kid.
is this supposed to be unflattering? that's about as good as any idol is gonna look close up. I'm a btsfag and even I think kai is one of the few genuinely good-looking idols.>>43752>However, I actually see movies/tv doing a lot better.

I could see that, there's a lot of good cinema coming out of Korea. Sang-soo has worked with Isabelle Hupert a few times and Okja and Snowpiercer which were English language and full of high-profile westerners were fairly popular. Plus a Korean film just won the Palme d'Or for the first time with Parasite.
The exo-ls and NCTshits made their home here a few threads ago, they were calling Mark homophobic and blaming his 'homophobia' on him being raised in Canada for not wanting to do fake gay shit on television with Haechan, that's when I realized this thread had kind of gone to hell. And the Yutafag/Sakurafag advocating legit race hate against Koreans>>43755
BTS are utter dogshit even below NCT>>43758>I'm a btsfag
Get the fuck out ratmy
I'm not a fan of any boy groups and I agree that NCT is the most annoying kpop group currently. (the group, not the fanbase) There's just something about them that makes punchable.>>43765
I'm with whatever anon said she might be on uppers. Her gaze in that Fancy fancam stands out in my mind. Maybe she really is losing it

I love how whenever an anon disagrees with the worst offenders when it comes to femcel behavior and nitpicking, they screech "GTFO STAN!". This thread is a fucking trainwreck.>>43780> 1,672 comments
Oh… I can sense the salt. But also, I don't really know how reliable these things are? What do they count as a "fake follower"? Inactive/ghost accounts? I'm sure Ratmys have made hundreds of throwaway accounts to inflate BTS' numbers. The retards.

yeah her face is freaky like most idols but she doesn't look like a man and saying she does made you sound like a scrote.>But i guess all you moomoos have mommy complexes so you think i am saying your idol is an ape herself

anon I'm not even one of the anons who called you an incel/pressed initially I'm just pointing out why they mistook you for a scrote. the least you could do instead of shitting up the thread with this weird one-sided "omg stop crying" meme is post pics of moofags' mommy issue sperging because that would at least be entertaining.>>43771
holy shit kek I missed this, was going to compare her to pic related but David Byrne doesn't deserve that.
Koreans caught on with the "sperm" thinghttps://pann-choa.blogspot.com/2019/08/theqoo-reason-why-people-wants-superm.html?m=1>So you're saying that they did it on purpose to make it funny when they go on English shows?;;;; This isn't like Psy where he's purposefully being comedic, this is a group who is supposed to look cool when they debut>So there are still people joking with "open condom style"… It's not like Gangnam style was famous because of that either;; Are Americans all chodings?>So they really weren't aware? They have a member who speaks English in the group, he's from Canada and there's also a Thai who attended international school too..;; To be honest, there's nothing to gain if they just want to be funny and make it sound like sperm since they already have members who speak English>You'd think that this is only the minority of responses, but those tweets have a bunch of RTsㅜㅜ There are also a ton of Ifans thinking that they're weird for thinking they're the new Avengers
Don't they find that cringy too?>It's problematic if they didn't know about it, but it's also problematic if they knew about it>Don't turn this into a national embarrassment, let's change the name

That's not fanservice or a sweet gesture, he's treacherously exposing Jin's fucked up head shape
I don't think Kai understands much, at least he didn't when him and Suho were with the kids of Stranger Things.
And Taemin knows absolutely nothing, but hey, at least he'll get his foreigners-calling-him-oppa fetish fulfilled.
Mark will have to do all the talking and explaining of their cringy name + concept.
>>43803>Mark will have to do all the talking and explaining of their cringy name + concept.
Hasn't he been doing the English speaking since the beginning? I have no idea who's in what unit but now that Johnny isn't with them it's all on him (and ten?)
At this point I don't consider this favoritism anymore. This is fucking torture. I really don't consider his position to be enviable.
I really hate BT21 characters being related to bts, they're so cute and colorful but everytime i remember they're related to those fuckers i physically cringe, oof
V looks almost amused with Jin's "head". Deeply unfortunate.
they probably did it quickly without thinking since they are about to go bankrupt. they should've scraped nct and promoted their successful groups / smngg until they could make back the profits. or they could stop embezzling money. >>43786
sm probably has a disney deal kek>>43771
she needs pants that cover her legs and that are baggy to balance that shit out. did kpop stylists even go to fashion school or what?? they always give members with bad proportions terrible clothes.
Just dissolve nct and debut a new boy or girl group. People are already tired of seeing the same SM faces, especially nct so there's nothing really fresh or new about this sperm group to make people curious or attract new fans.
This is such a stupid idea and somehow everyone sees that but SM.
I feel like she probably has a reversal of personality where she's dead inside off camera. It might be bad but I do judge people a bit on who they date. Not necessarily in a negative shaming way, but at least for Seolhyun who dated Zico, she probably has some sort of self-esteem issues or issues with choosing men in general to date an ugly perv like Zico tbh.
When it comes to Jihyo, Kang Daniel kind of seems like an ass and even Netizens think that she could do better. After all the shaming on Sixteen for her weight, she probably has low self-esteem and probably feels some weird obligation to her fans to give them the "best performance" after being practically psychologically tortured as a trainee since she was 8. I agree with whoever said that Jihyo will probably snap one day.>>43799
What about kpop even appeals to the West these days? I used to think it was the manlier members but BTS got popular after they stopped doing hiphop and went for the flower-boy image. Not to mention, isn't Jimin, the most effeminate one, the most popular member in the West?
Not that I would be surprised if this is true but is there anything more substantial than a Facebook post>>43748
That's like telling all the femcels on LC to sleep with a man.

I think JYP has a thing for the rat-faced look. Bless Yuna, though, as along with Yeji, she’s the only one in Itzy that looks like she actually wants to be there.
Cringe at the people in the comments making it such a big deal that the kids are singing in Korean though. Kidzbop always covers popular songs and bts is pretty popular among lots of kids here in the US so it makes sense that they'd cover bwl. They also cover songs in other languages like spanish so why would they translate the korean lyrics to english? It's better that it's kept in the original language anyway.
I understand why it would excite some people but it's not phenomenal lol, bts just have a lot of kid and preteen fans.

I'm still a bit puzzled that nct jaehyun wasn't put in the "super group." His looks are extremely popular among kpop stans, he speaks english, sings, and is the most popular nct member in sk by far with a lot of solo stans.
I'm not a stan of his btw
File: 1565398552895.jpg (95.13 KB, 806x1024, SV.jpg)
From the front he looks okay, from the side he's a solid 4/10 (and this is a considerably flattering fansite pic)
This post would've fit better in the general thread even with the "not a fan btw!!!"

Well Mark looks like a tiki mask, so literally anyone else from NCT would be an improvement.
File: 1565401491183.png (1.89 MB, 902x3220, zNnVCsT.png)
Jimin's #1 brand ranking is kind of like BTS' record for the top viewed video in 24 hours or whatever. Both are primarily their own fans spamming it over and over for the purpose of inauthentically raising the position/views
I'm sure Jimin does have plenty of fans, and BTS does too, sure. But neither are at the level of crazy popularity that their fans want to convince people they're at by inflating these numbers
Besides being a strong rapper, Mark is one of the most popular NCT members with a lot of devoted fans, so putting him in the group will guarantee a lot of support and money from his solo stans.
When it comes to Lucas however, I'm not so sure. Yes he's popular and considered a visual, but like >>43874
said, so is Jaehyun and he can sing, not to mention speak in English. The only reason why I can think they chose Lucas over Jaehyun is because of his extroverted personality. Maybe they thought it would be better for variety or group chemistry or something.

maybe read a fucking article or something. brand reputation is pointless, its inflated numbers made by the fans, if you couldnt already tell from all the nobodies placed in top 50 or things like jimin placed in front of kang daniel https://www.kpopbehind.com/2017/01/do-k-pop-idol-group-reputation-rankings.html?m=1

Interesting how this Eddie guy can debut and no one is breathing a bad word about it.. but they called Lana a koreaboo and are still attacking her.
To me it's just so clear that kpop stans were jealous of her and her pretty face
>>43896>crop top>ass shoop>heels>tan>smug punchable (and big) face
Yeah, koreans will surely love him /s
What is he thinking? How full of yourself do you need to be to think that you will be successful despite being the absolute opposite of all their standards?

Their fame is seriously so artificial. Apart from obsessed armys nobody really finds jimin anywhere near attractive. The only one who's somewhat popular with non-fans is v. All these polls and shit are the result of I-fans and k-fans spamming and pushing them up, subsequently leading to the media's pandering to them because they think bts has become an international sensation.
I'm sure most non-armys in Korea would take one of the wanna one guys or guys from other less popular group over someone like jimin.

He's giving me the "old idol trying hard to appear young" vibe like this dude from ss501
from one Stan to another (since you obviously know way more than I do re:NCT):
the western success of intl pop acts is only partly related to their English singing ability. bachata and regeton do well enough to get radioplay and sell out large venues, right? (At least on the East coast). Rosalia gets pitchfork write ups all the time singing in Spanish, world music, etc, etc,
getting the most fluent members has nothing to do with how well the group will do (Bts is proof of that).
What appeals to western listeners, even if it’s just sperg projection, is some semblance of individuality and artistry.
this is why, until now, Taemin maybe vaguely had a shot—SM worked super hard to create a unique artistic identity for his work within a recognizable mold, as boundary-pushing as he can be in a generic, bland market. his English could’ve stayed just okay to nonexistent, as long as he got, idk, diplo or Nellie Hooper to produce a 4 song ep of quality bangers in which he allegedly wrote the lyrics himself, proving that he could actually compete with existing manufactured singer-songwriters.
Sperm fails, inevitably, because this is literally a marketing ploy ordered by American executives—they spell it out in their pitch and sell themselves down the river. Not even a bullshit “these guys are such bffs, they started rehearsing and collabing on their own, we’re just financing their creative vision with Capitol $$”—just “the Avengers made a lot of money, so we, too, want to make a lot of money.”
changing the members won’t changed the totally bungled approach SM is obviously taking.
