I accidentally deleted in last thread sorry. this is gonna sound so self centered and im sorry but a big part of the reason why i loved sulli and krystal in fx was because they were both born in 94 like me and during that time not too many female idols were debuting who were born in that year. So I felt like we literally grew up together. This makes me so sad because I looked up to her and Krystal and thought it was so cool that these young girls were revered and loved so much. Its crazy how public perception shifted once they reached their 20s. I cant stop thinking about how alone she must've felt. Or how alone Krystal must've felt when her sister got booted out of GG but she still had to promote with Fx. this is breaking my heart yo. And this is exactly why i say we need to keep a closer eye on the 2nd gen idols.

I completely forgot about that crazy stalker fansite owner that was obsessed with Sulli, then turned against her and started stalking her and going on a huge hate campaign towards her and leaking their conversations and shit. I think that could have very well been a catalyst for Sulli. I cant imagine what its like to have to deal with obsessed fans that revolve their ENTIRE life around a specific celebrity, getting close to them, stalking them, then having all their information to use against them if they get mad or dont get their way about something. I heard she had moved on to some other idols but I hope she feels really shitty for what she did.

Nah if anything people need to not scrutinize every single detail about idols' personal lives and criticizing them. Kpop is too far gone because Knetz are hooked up to the internet 24/7 and take out their stress online by posting anonymous hate comments that get upvoted 5000 times. Those sites are a cancer for idols who don't have strong mentalities, imagine getting cyberbullied and having it upvoted by thousands of general public for dating or being too fat/thin/tan/ugly etc

No. 57397

It wasnt fans job to do anything, but its very clear she had no one around her to help her. It seems very different than Jonghyun, who was very close to his family. So close that they actually almost got to him before he was able to kill himself. It literally felt like Sulli was surrounded only by people who were looking for a good time, and its very clear several of them are using those "good times" to cover up a deep pain. Her best friend is Hara. Thats why this isnt surprising to me. They have both been in a very low place for a very long time and being around eachother may have only caused a deeper depression, as sad as that is it was only a matter of time before one of them succeeded.

No. 57398

>>57388
yes!! its crazy i feel like it happens 10x more for female idols. Its scary to think because in the real work 22-23 is when you are just now starting your career path. But for idols its the age when their career options start to shrivel up. Its insane to think that for most of these idols their career "peak" is like 18 and after that they are seen as has-beens. That must fuck with you mentally.

No. 57399

NB, Pannchoa etc translate those articles everyday and get hate but those 5000 upvotes calling idols "countrified", "ajumma", "psychobitch" etc come from Knetz.

Saged/sorry for blogposting but jonghyun’s death is what shattered the rest of the veneer for me re: kpop. You hear how terrible it is but you also hear about how it is glamorous/great so you assume it’s somewhere in the middle.

Idk if this will make others stop idealizing kpop and idols or if they’ll take it as a one off since her career was an anomaly.

i get what you are saying but you cant possibly know if you have the mental strength to handle hate comments when you are a 7th grader debuting for a large company. I really think children shouldnt be in the entertainment industry in any country period! But we all know that will never happen. Come to think of it when i first got into kpop back in 08 i would only hear about actors killing themselves. Its crazy how much it shifted.

4 months ago, Dasom made a live video that was really similar to the one Sulli made where she just cried the whole time. I think she is also in that same little circle of idols too. So thats very related to this >>57397. A lot of times depressed people are drawn to one another and it makes for a really bad situation. It almost always ends badly for at least one. Hopefully somehow, all the others will get help.

I was a fan of T-ara and can remember just how horrid and helpless of a situation it felt like for them. Literally being threatened, told to kill themselves, being booed and ~black oceaned~ during lives and worse over a situation that was a completely fabricated bullshit lie and the actual perpetrator had the nerve to ride the wave and play the victim and got rewarded for it. I can remember their parents literally coming to events and begging people to be kind to their kids because they were suffering so badly. And I remember the youngest member who had literally been physically assaulted and threatened by the ACTUAL bully and her twin, being ostracized and treated so badly by netizens, that she began starving herself and quite literally drove herself insane over it, then got shit on about that, taken out of the group, and put in a mental hospital and netizens still called her crazy and a witch and all sorts of things and she was just a kid. And her mom did the same thing, getting online and crying and telling people to leave her child alone and stop being so evil towards her when she had done nothing wrong. For awhile I was convinced at least one of them would have died by now but luckily it didnt happen. Their careers are still destroyed though. None of them recovered yet Hwayoung is still trotting herself out on tv with no shame and barely gets any hate. So maybe when a parent gets online and tells people to stop being so malicious I:e Kyla's parents, the Chae sisters' parents, Daisy's parents etc, people should listen because its not cute or funny to be so damn cruel.

I've always been a very casual kpop fan (never bought an album, never streamed etc) and I admit I still do like some groups as a guilty pleasure but I've been feeling worse and worse about it ever since Jonghyun's passing.

Areum released the texts. It was proven false.

Also, staff confirmed as well that Hwayoung was in the wrong and had been having issues for awhile. Her twin admitted it and apologized to Areum for literally threatening to kill and maim her because she was ~taking maknae attention~ away from Hwayoung. That's proof enough.

Back then T-ara's Jiyeon was besties with Sulli (together with IU).

Of course the idol industry and SM entertaiment are toxic but I feel like the main problem was her being a child actress and basically getting abondanded by her parents to make money. Who the fuck let's a 10yo move out and live alone? Just look at the western celeb thread, there's not a single child actor or actress who turned out normally, it's always bound to completely fuck their lives up. Of course we can't know for sure but I always had the impression that she was given a lot of freedom by her company but nevertheless it was probably too late to undo the damage of her lost childhood.

I wonder if they're going to bank on this whole depression thing now like Jyp does with Mina's anxiety. There are hardly any SM idols who haven't come out admitting that they are or were depressed at some point. Just google a group + depression and you'll get several members talking about it.

It enables more exploitation and contributes to a looks/plastic surgery obsessed Kpop culture.

Even BTS preaching "Love Yourself" etc rings empty when mentally unwell members like Jungkook (he continued promoting last year when people spotted selfharm scars, at least JYP gave Mina time off) are forced to fulfil rigorous schedules to dance and sing like style-coordinated circus acts. Hope Korean idols band together and stand up to fight for more individual freedoms and better labour rights from big companies, their pop industry horror stories sound like Jackson 5 abuse stories from years ago.

already irrelevant idols in their careers and were in 'wuv'. I can name 4 people off the top of my head who ended up with babies, and 2 of them being from UKISS proves my point because their careers are so irrelevant that they've got a dad up there singing teeny bopper songs and nobody gives a fuck because they probably dont even realize the songs are being released.

how the fuck was she supposed to be ~mentally prepared for being in the entertainment industry~ when she was thrust into it by her parents in the 4th grade? the idol industry fucks you up even before debuting, and even moreso after you’re placed in the spotlight. after she turned 18 it just got steadily worse for her…she went from f(x) cute maknae to the nation’s most hated idol, she was pounded with hate every time she got online or was spotted in public. at that point it’s too late to develop any sort of mental fortitude. she spent her early teens being the butt of jailbait jokes and her late teens (and on) being called a worthless slut. she had no one around her to help, and mental health care in Korea sucks shit…to compare her situation to an American, grown ass singer or youtuber receiving hate comments is beyond tonedeaf.

i’m not gonna sit here and pretend like i didn’t side-eye her doing a lewd photoshoot with a pedo, but it’s obvious that she wasn’t a bad person, just an extremely lost and lonely young woman who was groomed from a young age and alienated from her peers and had her pre-existing mental health issues exacerbated by the insane amount of online hate she received. have some fucking empathy.

There needs to be child labour laws forbidding under 16s to be on TV or "training" to be idols because forcing kids to train until 2am to be stars is pure exploitation by the parents and entertainment industry, not to mention kids being preyed upon by older folks. Kids like Jihyo and Sulli shouldn't be trainees or live in dorms before they even hit their teens.

>>57470 Confucianism and the idea that purity, innocence, virginity etc are prized qualities for women. Emphasis on women ugh. Sulli was a super progressive popstar and in the West that gets applauded but in highly conformist conservative Kpop she's seen as a nail that sticks out.

No the question is why do they see FEMALE sexuality as something so tainted,so twisted?

Probably because most of these fangirls are from islamic SEA countries where women are seen as way less than men. Thats why these women always protect male idols when they get into a sex scandal.

No. 57476

I wonder if the news will exploit the funeral like they did with the last idol suicide. Her being a black sheep in the entertainment industry makes me wonder if they'll paint it differently, like showing the other celebs who visited the funeral home or showing her parents crying carrying her casket with other members of f(x). Jonghyun had a very good reputation while Sulli was just so fucking polarizing and hated for YEARS.

I think it will just be like the jonghyun situation with youtube accounts trying to capitalize views off this,foreign sites publishing this,people acting woke….and then people forgetting about this after a month and going back to sending hate to idols they don't like.

But most of the hate comments that show up on Korean Kpop sites come from Knetz not Islamic SEA countries (like Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia and….?) and SK doesn't need help in the "sees women as less than men" department. Check out the Seungri molka scandal and male Knetz outrage when Irene read a feminist novel or Naeun used a girl power phonecase. SK is messed up.

May be a bit… of topic mood wise but does anyone feel like everyone basically had to delay their teasers and comebacks out of respect rather than because their artists need actual mourning - apart from a few individual cases that is.

I understand it but at the same time it rubs me such a wrong way because realistically these entertainment industries and whatever goes on in them are part of the problem.

It's all run by money though and the fans themselves usually don't care unless it's someone they've followed/liked a ton.

ia, but i feel like international news on kpop is really shallow. they're barely scratching the surface because all they do is talk about the training process and the pressure to get surgery. sulli moved to seoul by herself as a kid after her parents divorced, was most likely was groomed by a man 14 years her senior, and was treated as a pariah after she was caught on a date with him.

>>57493
Taeyeon has also said the same thing. Others might have already said this but I think it's important–ending the stigma against mental illness in K-pop won't happen any time soon because that would require the whole industry to fall apart in the process. The greedy businessmen behind it wanna keep making money even if it means sacrificing the physical and mental well-being of the idols they employ.

And I'm sure koreans know this just as much as we do, so why are there still so many parents who allow their kids to enter this industry? Do they really believe that somehow their child won't get abused, won't flop like thousand others, won't get mentally damaged?

No. 57505

F(x) fans and the general kpop fans should protect the idols and call predatory dudes out, it's sad that ratmies and boygroup fans in general are overprotective of male idols and make huge efforts to bury any scandals they get into, but girl groups lose their fans and get thrown to the dogs if they date and lose their "innocence". Why don't female idols have committed fans like NCT or BTS who try to clear search engines of scandalous tags?

No. 57506

they want quick money off of their child, like most stage parents around the world want. they know the dangers but don't care. and of course some idols parents just wanted their kid to be happy and had the funds for it, but didn't even try to educate their kid or themselves on what actually goes on in the industry until it was too late which is arguable just as fucked.

I think parents who allow their children to enter careers in entertainment are either incredibly naiive, fame-hungry (ala Somi's parents) or both. Also I would think that rich parents can feel like they can use their wealth to potentially insulate their kids from the more disgusting and harsher practices of K-pop.

I'm not too sure about as a non-Korean but I've heard something like the following before. Breaking into the music and arts successfully is tough to do in South Korea given the small market and other factors. I can see K-pop being used as a segway to more serious musical pursuits for many idols/trainees. NCT's Mark seems to wanna be an actual rapper and RV's Wendy has talked about how she strictly wanted to be a solo singer for the longest time. Both of them are idol group members though so I feel like they're using their current status to their advantage in order to boost name recognition for solo artistic pursuits in the future.

I remember watching return of Superman and tablo was very vocal about not wanting haru to get into the industry, and he seemed so awkward around the guys at YG and it seemed like the show was really pushing him to take haru to the studios to be around them and have a couple of the members come to their house. Was always kind of weird to me. He would just say things and it was obvious he knew the kitchen bd of shit they were doing. He always seemed like a good dad and I feel he will really do his best to protect her and keep her away from those aspects of the industry if she decides to go into it ( I hope she doesn't)

Btw SuperM topped the Billboard album chart with NYT throwing shade:"But now a K-pop supergroup has truly pushed the envelope: SuperM — a seven-member boy band whose existence was announced just two months ago — topped Billboard’s latest album chart with a seven-track EP that was sold in an array of CD versions and bundle deals. SuperM’s debut, “The 1st Mini Album ‘SuperM’,” opened at No. 1 with 164,000 album sales and a modest 4.9 million streams, according to Nielsen. Of those album sales, 113,000 were CDs and 51,000 were digital downloads. The CD version came in eight packaging variations, one for each member of the group (plus a “united” version), which included a variety of posters and collectible cards. The group’s fans took to social media to display the many versions they acquired."

So fans have to buy 8 different CDs to collect a set or did they get 8 Cds for the cost of 1 album?

Serri talks about the dark side of the entertainment industry, says she received sponsor offers and drugs.

>>Dal Shabet member Serri recently posted a YouTube video addressing controversial topics such as drugs and sponsorships that is gaining massive attention.


>>She started off by explaining that there are some companies who are likely to accept sponsors and some who aren't. Serri stated that luckily, her CEO never brought any of the members to a drinking meeting. However, Serri has received sponsorship offers through Instagram DM's. She stated that some sponsors will threaten girls who reject their offers, saying that they would not be able to debut or work.


>>Regarding drugs, Serri talks about a time when a fellow idol offered her drugs. The member was a part of an idol group and had the drugs in a vitamin container and told Serri that she'd "feel good" if she ate it. She stated that the individual later appeared in the headlines for drug usage, causing her much shock.

i think someone in the last thread had a good point re: sulli's career. it's interesting how this has happened right before iu and taeyeon's comebacks, two of her reportedly closest friends. i wonder if she tried to reach out to them, and they were too busy to put their hearts into replying? or, considering how goblin was just 3 months ago, she saw their careers as her future and she couldn't take it anymore? in any case, her reasons must have so many factors - thrust into the industry in 4th grade, preyed on by god knows how many creeps like choiza, jinnabit monopolizing her fandom for so many years, the constant articles and hate she got for just existing, getting lost on her career path and on the way to getting shut out of the only industry she knows at 25… fuck, idolism sucks.

I agree but it was also just the first couple of seasons where they didn't expect it to become such a big thing.

Time and again the friends and people Sulli hangs out with irl on Instagram are not fellow celebs (maybe idols avoid her after her scandals) but non-celebs, she has many vids on IG live with her drinking buddies and they are all not famous except Goo Hara. Those people are her support network not IU or Taeyeon.

>>57533 You're trying to drive a narrative of Kpop industry throwing away idols once they hit 25 and reaching hard to fit Jonghyun into it, but Jonghyun def wasn't thrown away and he was 27. The year he died he published a book and even talked about achieving his dream and quoted the most significant line of his book during Shinee's variety promos.

For the umpteenth time, Sulli wasn't thrown away by SM despite her dating scandal. Tbh I think SM gave her tons of leeway because she was highly marketable as a model/celeb compared to the other F(x) girls, f(x) were basically discarded after Sulli left and she had a few solos. She was doing ads yesterday and scheduled to film her Haters Night talkshow (JTBC called it a new show "to help the stars become stronger psychologically" jeez) and missed it tragically.

The tv show in which sulli had to read the hate comments directed to her aint helping either.

>JTBC called it a new show "to help the stars become stronger psychologically".

Wtf so much bullshit
I hate this kind of show (hello counselor is an example)

>During Sulli's turn, she responded cheerfully to the mean spirited comments. She agreed with a commenter that said her biggest success is her social presence on SNS and that she is an attention seeker. She disagreed with a commenter who said she looked like a "druggie" because of her large dilated pupils, saying that she has done nothing illegal, but had studied drug behavior during method acting.[6]And she denied going braless to seek attention, saying that for her it was more comfortable, as well as "more natural and prettier". She said she sees bras as an accessory that she sometimes wears, and she had continued to go braless after it became a controversy to help make the prejudice disappear.


>Discussing past malicious comments she had received, Sulli said she had started to sue once, but the commenter, a student at a prestigious college, had sent a long letter of apology, and she had forgiven them. However, she said she would not do the same again.[6] She expressed her hope that people could accept each other's differences and said, "there are so many unique types of people in this country with so much talent and I feel like they're wasting it by putting their energy into critiquing others like this online."

I'm not wking the knetz in any way but i kinda understand why they took her transformation so strongly. It's like the miley cyrus' breakdown in the us, only this happened in korea where people are more reluctant to accept different things other than what they consider as acceptable (this is not racebait okay). People literally watched her grew up from a 10 year old child actress to the "different" sulli.

I mean if it was the dudes birthday he had all the right to say something to fans. BTS (like any kpop group) thrives from the relationship they have with their fans. People here (and in general) expect life to stop for everyone when someone within the industry dies which is unrealistic.

>>57608
It sort of odd to think how idols like Hyuna are basically allowed to gloat about going out naked or being all sexual but the moment another idol does something similar it could go either way.

Not to say Hyuna doesn't get hate but she definitely has a fair amount of support too.

>>57617
The industry literally establishes this image of idols being godly and pure. I have no doubt that there's expectations for them to do this, but realistically the whole thing is started and maintained by the actual company, and the whole 'fan relationship' is possibly the most important way to success too. So, fans are often encouraged to think they have some sort of chance in dating said idol and that the idol is some sort of angel that they must protect.

No. 57620

>>57619
that’s very true but in sulli’s case most of the people (in fact nearly all i would argue) weren’t actually fans of hers who i could conceivably believe would develop such a parasocial fixation with her. i’m willing to bet most of the hate she got was from entitled and judgemental non fans who don’t understand mental illness and women have choices to live their life how they want.

Its a song about female masturbation and koreans were furious about it.
Sulli shouldve left the idol scene completely and choose an underground company. People associate SM with idols. Heck even sungmin is on hiatus just because hes married. Idol culture is insane yet it will never die because:
1. Kpop idols support korea's economy
2. People want idol fame and are willing to risk their soul for it

Hyuna was always bashed from day one. The difference is that she doesnt suit much the idol image. Shes more of a Korean singer that's it. The minute she left 4minute her whole image was about being different and sexual. At that time feminism wasnt big so you can imagine all the hate she received. Parents COMPLAINED so much about MAMA where she performed troublemaker with that dude from beast. You should've seen the outrage. HyunA lowered people's expectations so nobody was shocked anymore.

Not everything of course, just a little bit of information will do. I'd rather hear from her directly than some anons assuming that A/B killed her, then proceeded to fight each other or wk some obviously evil company (every company in the industry is).

Then again, even a message will be forgotten. It will not change the way kpop industry works. Jonghyun poured his heart out in the letter but nothing ever changed because of it.

Yes bigbang members are shitty but they have always been open about their dislike to seungri, still no one drags them into the actual case of burning sun as if theyre responsible for what happened.

He should just give up and become a comedian already or be the next Moon He Joon and camp out and wait for an underaged idol waifu to snatch up. He'd fit right in. Speaking of the creep Moon He Joon, he's still at it trying to recapture his glory now that hes in the spotlight again for putting his toddler all over tv. This was literally posted a day ago and I could barely stomach the article.. It kind of makes me sick how the media forces its viewers and readers to fawn over old washed up male idols making fools of themselves(but oppa lost weight he looks so good the bar is so low!!111) while a woman cant even reach 30 without having to have extensive plastic surgery and still remain chaste and sexless and underweight.

Why is that even a joke/point of conversation among men who are older who work with kids/teenagers. I know she didn't specify which oppas they were but like ??? Gross. Yes some could be closer to her age and not pedophilic (still weird and potentially creepy) but the context overall is just icky.

She's obviously had some first-hand experience and plenty of proof to go with it. People don't care because people want to continue enjoying k-pop. People wouldn't care if someone killed themselves and exposed the industry either. They'd still continue.

>10. [+17, -6] Honestly, I've never seen SM take any official action over her hate comments. They take in young kids and put them through intense competition before debuting them as singers and then milk them as much as they can to make their investment back. They don't stop to check the mental healths of these kids… Let's be real, Super M was only put together because EXO and SHINee are in the army and they're scared of their stock prices dropping.

Your very new to kpop arent you?
The point of kpop is to be goodlooking and appeal to the girlfriend/boyfriend experience to your fans. There is also a reason why kpop idols are called idols.

Kpop in itself is basically fan-service with music that is for the opposite sex.

No. 57899

>>57887 there are many F(x) fans who blame Sulli for breaking up the group, who knows how the girls think.

TBH because Kpop idols debut very young people think group members' relationship is friendly like high school or uni students, but in reality they're more like professional coworkers. There's favoritism and workplace hierachy in Kpop too. Some members are more valued by the company bosses (Jennie, Sulli, Krystal) and others are added to the group to make up numbers/add visuals or fill a dancer role (Jin, Lisa, Sehun) , they basically act chummy as a group on camera to service fans and gain popularity but every member is more focused on solo activities because an idol group only has a 5-7 year lifespan, all members must use their brief idol career to leapfrog into solo singing, acting, modelling work etc. Luna Amber etc have struggled after f(x)'s demise while Krystal and Victoria went into acting.

Not uncommon that popular idols who get a lot of solo work start to find comeback rehearsals and group promos a hindrance because they rather promote solo, like Suzy, Seolhyun, Siwan, Kyungsoo (enlisted early for his acting career and upset EXO fans) etc.

"Sulli's just an onion… I thought things had at least gotten okay now but after reading Jinnabit's tweets, I can't stand it because I feel so bad for the other four members… poor Soojung!!!"

"Jinnabit's a saint for putting up with her.."

"Jinnabit-nim fighting…"

"Considering all that's been revealed, Jinnabit's a saint…"

"How could Jinnabit just stand watching Sulli act like this…"

"I really liked Sulli but this makes me lose all respect for her."

"Don't care about Sulli anymore, my heart breaks for the four f(x) members."

"Proves that the scariest anti is a fan who turned their back on you. Jinnabit's a real saint. Makes me so upset and want to cry because this is so different from the Sulli I had known."

"I used to hate Jinnabit but considering everything she's put up with, she's a saint."

"You can really tell Jinnabit loved Sulli… always shielding her, staying quiet when she got hate. Sulli really betrayed her ㅠ Sulli even asked her to make Choiza an ID on the fansite ㅠㅠ and yet Jinnabit still has to put up with all the rumors people make up about her."

"There's no fan like Jinnabit who helped Sulli and shielded her… why did Sulli do this to her."

"Jinnabit herself said she's going to leave once her lawsuit is over. She's suing a ton of fans for making up rumors about her like how she threatened other fanpages and everything."

"This is why idols shouldn't be friends with their fans. How're you going to handle the repercussions when things go wrong?

"Man, I'd be so grateful if I had a fan who loved me like their own life…"

"Heard Jinnabit has almost spent 20 million won on Sulli."

"Somehow Jinnabit saying all this makes it believable…"

>there are many F(x) fans who blame Sulli for breaking up the group,
Honestly, in a way they are correct, but it is disrespectful to mention it now. She did choose to leave the group in the middle of promotions BUT it wasnt her being selfish like people played it off as. She was in love(which most of the bitter betties will never experience lmao) and she was young. Whether the relationship was healthy or not is not relevant. Lots of people make relationship mistakes. Her even daring to have sex and ruin her ~le pure girl who doesnt even know what sex is~ image made it almost unbearable for her to be in an idol group because in Korea its the end of the world when an idol, especially a female, has sex until they get married and even then marriage seems to warrant death threats and erasure in a lot of cases(that guy from SJ etc). She got into the industry as a kid. So while it is true that her leaving during a promotion cycle might not have been the best thing for the group, she felt it was the right thing to do at the time. And if people werent so obsessed and retarded over idols genitals and what they do with them, she probably would have been ok. She also didnt seem to have anyone around her to protect her. All her friends were encouraging her to drink excessively and make a fool of herself a lot of the time. I 100%she and Hara started to crash and burn a couple years ago mentally, and they unfortunately just dug eachothers grave deeper. I hope she pulls through and I hope people have learned a lesson to be less cruel.

No. 57975

>>57937
4 Walls was arguably one of their best albums and im pretty sure one of their albums had charted on billboard world charts way before charting on billboard was a thing in korea. just because someone leaves a group doesn't the whole group has to die.

its SMs fault, he will have 20 different subunits of boy group members with members missing here and there because they have to be in other subunits or other schedules, yet for his girl groups its somehow all or nothing. jungwoo from nct has been gone basically this whole year for health reasons but the whole group isnt just dead? this goes for other companies too, like when Minzy left 2ne1, YG killed the whole group, when it still had the potential to go on.

the disposability of female groups and female idols in general by these big man sexist CEOs is cruel, they are just dolls to play with until they reach a certain age, then they get new dolls. obviously the idols themselves don't think this deep because to them, a member leaving is essentially backstabbing the whole group. when in the end we see people need to leave for mental/health reasons, because that's what being an idol does to you.

im pretty sure the rest of the members have finally come to terms now with why she left and how it wasnt her fault, but SM's fault since im pretty sure most of them didnt resign with SM. fans are realizing this truth now too, but its too late since so many people blamed her for ending f(x).

Both are so American pop somehow, both musically + the videos, I was so surprised. And suddenly I understand why BTS couldn't (or just didn't? idk) get radio play here. Anyone else in the US have this experience or similar? I wonder why bighit didn't try to pander to American tastes, or maybe they thought they were?

Korean name is “Girl of the Month,” in the buildup to their debut as a 12-member group each member debuted individually with a single & her own music video. There are also 3 subgroups that debuted prior to the main group: Loona 1/3 (consisting of Heejin, Hyunjin, Haseul, & Vivi), Odd Eye Circle (consisting of Kim Lip, Jinsoul, & Choerry), and yyxy (consisting of Yves, Chuu, Go Won, & Olivia Hye). Yeojin, the maknae, is not in a subgroup. Each subgroup had a different musical style and aesthetic.

There’s also the Loonaverse, which is a subtextual narrative that loops all of the Loona music videos and songs into a larger metanarrative that can supposedly be teased out through images and symbolism in the videos and lyrics, but I think this is mostly just surface-level imagery and fan speculation about it is mind-numbingly boring schizo shit.

They debuted as a group with Hi High and did a followup release with Butterfly early this year but since then they’ve been AWOL. Plans for a ballad album were scrapped, a Japan debut never materialized, planned subgroup promotion never happened, and the third release B#RN is seemingly delayed indefinitely. Jaden Jeong, the creative director behind the group, also seems to have left. And it was recently revealed that the company lost a lawsuit with another company that fronted a lot of money for Loona’s inception. So it’s a whole mess right now and it’s not clear if the group will even be continuing. Sad, as musically and conceptually they’re probably the best group out there right now.

That's simply not true, anon. Female idols are more well known in the general public but boy groups make way more money because male fans are content with fapping it to Nayeon on the internet while fangirls are willing to spend every last cent on their oppars.

I think that's also where SM's sexism really shows: rv has more female than male fans at this point, which is something they should be glad for seeing as women are more loyal than men, but instead of appreciating that they still continue to mainly pander to males.

i wonder if the sulli fans and defenders who've been saying for years that she's just carefree and doesn't give a fuck feel bad at all now? in the last couple of months her behaviour was clearly erratic, didn't she expose her nipple on an ig live and ignore it? i don't mean that anyone who's openly sexual or unusual is mentally ill but it was really fucking obvious that she had the sort of disconnect and recklessness of someone who isn't in the best place mentally, when you looked at her behaviour overall and how thin she looked. stans just took it as another thing to praise because kpop fans have such a black and white mentality that showing concern for someone acting erratically is the same as bullying to them.

sulli got way too much criticism for the wrong things like not wearing bras, got too much 'she's a dumb slut' instead of 'here's why this is harmful' criticism for genuinely bad decisions like repeatedly working with a pedo photographer when she was in her 20s, and got defended by her rabid fans when they should've showed concern. she must've been dealing with a lot because so many people had really strong opinions on everything she did, ranging from thinking she was an angel to a druggie whore. must mess with your head when so many people don't see you as a real person

I don't remember Hoya being popular at all, really. I don't think Infinites stagnation had anything to do with him, I think they just got left behind. afaik they were still popular-ish(?) in Korea until recently, but they always remained as a second gen group, and none of those have really survived. Even GG was stagnating toward the end. I'm curious to see how BEG's are gonna do when they come back.

I was a huge infinite fag, even their recent-ish songs were good imo, but Sunggyu's in the military now and he was their only good vocalist. Their latest single doesn't have him in it and you can really tell who carried the group without him there.

from my experience most fujos are lesbian or bisexual with a preference for girls. i think they don't see male idols as real men (i mean most of them have that flower boy aesthetic nowadays) and just a way to self insert themselves into a kpop group. the cutesy or girl crush girl groups don't really suit their style i guess.

I'm not sure if this is too harsh, but I feel like this isn't right.

You can't change other people but you can change yourself.
If you're getting hurt by hate comments, you should change the way you feel about them, not the people making them.

>>58379
No you're not being too harsh. There will always be people who dislike what you do, no matter how harmless it is (eg. Irene reading a book about feminism, etc). Many people, and not just idols should do multiple checks before publishing anything. If you think you can handle the hate comments directed toward you after uploading a certain content that you know will provoke a negative reaction from the mass, then go for it. If you think you can't, then don't. Simple as that. Oh and I'm only talking about things that you can totally control like Instagram or Twitter posts, TV appearances, etc. Not candid pics and vids.

But for real, it's fucking ugly.

Also, why does it seem like idols wear the cheapest, ugliest Halloween store tier contacts? You'd think they'd at least invest in some that aren't so comically fake and make them look like lizards?

It's showing up in recommendations bc of the algorithm sensing sulli death news, plus ppl keep mentioning jonghyun.

Tiffany posted this on her stories but this was the only mention from her. I’m honestly surprised too that none of the other SNSD members have posted, especially Taeyeon. Although honesty I’m wondering if they’ve decided not to put it on social media at all considering that social media was the cause of Sulli’s death and they don’t want any kind of hate comments on posts about Sulli?

But yeah I do get why it seems disrespectful to not at least mention something but instead just carry on like nothing happened. Yoona hasn’t posted anything about Sulli but she’s not posting anything else either, whereas Seohyun is just posting selfies at the beach like she doesn’t give a shit. I find that weird even if they weren’t friends. They were still in the same company.

this is the second suicide to come out of that god forsaken company what, the last 2 years? i can understand why most of her colleagues/friends/group mates or whatever haven't addressed anything. seems more like a shame,shock, or disbelief thing rather than them just not giving a fuck. (but that's just my assumption)

if anonymous civilians are mourning her death no doubt the people that actually spoke,interacted, and grew up with her in SM are even more affected. not to say any of them are close bff's or whatever, but its highly unlikely they don't care at all unless we have reason to believe they're malignant sociopaths (we don't).

iu was supposedly as close to sulli as goo hara but hasn't posted anything either. weird asf to write them off as not giving a shit

No. 58773

The difference is, IU hasn’t updated her IG at all. It’d be different if she was posting smiling/happy selfies because that contradicts the idea of someone mourning. But some of the SNSD members are posting regular stuff with no mention to Sulli at all, so it gives off the impression that they don’t care/aren’t in mourning. They hopefully most likely are in mourning of course, but as a celebrity I do think they should have acknowledged it before going about their day.

While it might be shameful for the company to have two suicides, having no one mention it actually makes it seem like this ‘one big family’ is even more of a lie

Who actually ever thought that? It's not even really an image SM tries to push, even idols within the same group openly admit to members they feel awkward or not close with. It's obvious not everyone in a huge company is going to be bffs, they're coworkers and so busy they wouldn't spend a lot of time together.

Though even if you weren't close it's pretty callous to carry on posting selfies like nothing happened.

i agree that relationships are artificial but I think at the same time these people are still celebrities and must keep up with the public. People like IU can afford to disappear for a month or two and no one would probably question it too much because she's popular.

That and they may not be the bestest of friends or have talked that much so everything is hitting her a bit less. Point is - they can be friends and not be the closest of people.

idk what appropriate grieving is defined as worldwide but I think posting a memorial for IG likes when they are only acquaintances could be construed as insincere in some Asian countries. In all honesty I doubt Sulli or f(x) were close buddies to SNSD in general even though they are all SM idols. SNSD debuted earlier and are sunbaes which in Kpop means idols that debut later regardless of age greet them formally and are overly subservient or polite. It makes sense that f(x) grieved for her but SNSD were prob like coworkers in a different department of the same company that f(x) competed with, you can't assume they are close when idols like SNSD have crazy schedules and travel in and out of SK so they don't see f(x) on a daily basis.

She's been playing the "woe is me I'm so depressed all I do is stay home and color in coloring books" card for so long and her stans eat it up. They treat her like a poor uwu tiny baby even though she's 30. Her personality has always been shit but the reason why people liked her was because of her voice and in SNSD she didn't really need a big personality because she made up for it with her voice. She's never had any remarkable qualities other than "kid leader" and her voice. I honestly don't think anyone would have given a shit about her if she couldn't sing, she's wholly unremarkable. Also she has a tendency to fall for trolling/reply to bait which is annoying as well.

As others have mentioned, shes always been fairly whiny. Even on variety she was always like "I dont like any of the concepts they make me cringe." but she still worked hard and had talent so people thought of it as endearing moreso than annoying. When she was a trainee, she got upset about something(nobody has ever said what exactly happened), pitched a fit and ran away from the dorms and SM freaked out because they were literally RESPONSIBLE for her and she just took off alone and they had to find her. Ever since then she has complained about pretty much everything. She claims to be an introvert and loner which is understandable, but then why be an idol? Thats something I dont understand. If an idol spends their childhood WANTING to be an idol and pursues it then doesnt want to be one when they're older, its understandable. But it seems she didnt want to from the beginning. Its hard to really know exactly how it is though because they keep everything so secretive within the company and stuff. Nobody knows what happened between her and Jessica that caused tension. But honestly I've never heard anyone who knows Taeyeon in real life say anything particularly bad about her. She just really seems to resent being an idol.

Do you think that more talented idols resent, mock or even bully their lesser talented group members? Having to share the money you earned with somebody who's basically useless is bound to piss anybody off. Example, Baekyhun and Chen vs. Chanyeol and Sehun or Choa vs. the entire rest of AOA. Not that Jihyo is super good, but just imagine having to constantly hear Sana and Momo's whiny ass voices. It seems like in most group there's always only one somewhat decent singer who has to carry all the others.

Tiffany’s problem is that she has no technical abilities. Her singing is unsupported and even after all these years as a singer, she hasn’t figured out how to move from her chest voice to her head voice so her high notes are always strained and nasally. She also always tries to sing out of her range (because it’s so small) and she just doesn’t have the skills to do that.

I don’t think Jessica or Taeyeon originally had the voice for singing because they have a weird tone but you can tell that their training is years better than Tiffany’s.

This is what every single ratmy cries when they get criticised. "It's not their fault, my babies didn't even get vocal coaches, they have to learn everything by themselves!!!" Are you honestly dumb enough to believe that?
Even if bighit wouldn't provide them (which is definitely not the case), then your poor boys could just hire one themselves instead of spending their millions on more useless gucci shit.

Bighit is a zillion dollar corp but can't provide the best vocal training on earth? Bullshit. Ditto for all the drama that goes down in airports, as if most groups couldn't afford a private plane or private boarding around the back not in the main part of the airport? There's a reason they do all this shit, idk why but it's annoying as hell that they think we are dumb enough to accept all their lies & machinations

Tiffany can't connect her head & chest voice, she has no mix whatsoever & apparently no one has ever told her. I give her props for trying but she just doesn't have the voice to rly carry a solo career, regardless of country or language or market. Her music videos are like long form beauty commercials or perfume ads. And there's something to be said for that, I mean they are pleasing to watch, but like it isn't musical artistry, it's all visuals & expensive instagrammy sets & outfits.

Kpop rly isn't about the music anyway, guys, and once you realize that kpop becomes more fun to watch & critique. Kpop idols are NOT musicians or artists. Huge effort is put into visuals, acting, concepts & dance. Vocals & songwriting are almost irrelevant at least to the idol. But that's the point. Idol pop is not music it's entertainment. Group members are cast for reasons that have nothing to do with music. Outliers like Wendy/yuju being good singers, rose having a music background & playing guitar, ikon/BTS rappers writing their own stuff, are exceptions not the rule.

I’m just speaking from experience, they don’t do warmups at their sound checks, or at least they didn’t a couple years ago…that’s just a fact.

No. 58900

No I'm agreeing with you, just I phrased my reply as a rhetorical question to bighit bc I don't believe they can't afford a vocal coach or whatever. they just don't care. There are some ppl who proudly state they've never had lessons & don't need them, but that's absolute bs, in fact that's how I can tell singers apart…all singers need training, idc how good you think you are or how famous you are

A major sign for me, that they don't train, is the fact I've never once heard an idol say they're on voice rest like no talking or singing for x amt of time. It's weird considering how much they milk sob stories for fan sympathy. Fans would totally eat up a variety appearance with someone like jihyo claiming vocal cord strain or injury & writing her answers to things on a paper or something like that.

I also never see idols warming up, managing their breathing, like none of it. All of them would benefit from all that breathing shit w the diaphragm, chest expansion & modulating it so they can increase stamina for dancing while singing. I bet fans would also dig footage of voice lessons …or a super non musical idol like, say, sowon or shuhua or jisoo taking a guitar or piano lesson

These idols along with many others don't have a single musical bone in their body. Jisoo especially has no rhythm, she doesn't feel the music & move with it, she just robotically repeats dance moves by rote memory. Ditto Jin, Sowon, yuqi, miyeon, Irene, most of twice. It's fascinating how untalented you can be but still be so popular! These kids aren't musicians and most aren't even dancers. They're idols. Fans fall in love with their looks or personality. And there's nothing inherently wrong with this, I'm just fascinated by it

>And they never had vocal coaches in any of their behind the scenes vlogs

I see what you mean but I think that was that anons point. They show plenty of behind the scenes stuff with staff, stylists, dry run rehearsals, meetings, dance practice. But nothing related to singing, (in fact singing is almost never even discussed which is weird.) There's no reason to keep vocal coaching secret or off limits, in fact fans would probably love it, same way they love all the other evidence of their idols working sooooo hard. And then they would have even more grounds on which to base their "but uwu baby jimin works sooooo haaarrrddd" delusional white knighting. Based on all this, and the fact that kpop singers pretty much never improve, leads me to believe that singing is the lowest priority part of kpop idoldom. I mean they talk more about unhealthy dieting than their actual craft…bc it's not their craft! It's not about the music. They aren't musicians. Even Rose playing a lil guitar doesn't make her a musician. These kids arent being paid for musicianship or artistry. Theyre being paid to diet, get their hair dyed 582538 times a year, and memorize dance moves like a robot.

You need to relax lol we’re literally on the same side. I got my info from seeing them live and being at their sound check 5 years ago, as embarrassing as it is to admit that now. And about the vlogs, like anon said >>58905 they show everything else besides vocal coaching/singing lessons, so it’s not a far leap to assume they don’t have any. Or maybe they do and they just suck so bad they can’t retain any of their lessons, I have no clue. Both seem plausible. I’m done sperging about this.

bts do talk about vocals, mostly about how they feel about their awful vocals, they do talk about getting lessons in the vlives and their movies/documentals. They sing in bon voyage and run episodes. They also talk a lot about their vocal lessons as traines and how Jimin didn't got enough vocal lessons because he was suppose to be only a dance member and V as well because he was suppose to be a rapper or something like that, I don't remember well

So they just have the most incompetent useless vocal coach in SK? Even my unprofessional ass knows jimin won't last in that strained falsetto night after night. I imagine they won't drop keys bc the music is all canned & it has to match for fans who might view from home, on youtube etc? I saw one tiny clip of jimincel crying about his shit high note & a female staff said we can drop it a half step,, & im like uhhh that's literally the bare minimum, it needs to come WAY down, and it would benefit v and Jin too sooo–

Idk why no one's noticed Jin obvious straining, like you can literally see his neck tendons contracting…it's so cringe I can't watch him. If ur straining ur actual face and neck, ur doing it wrong.

>So can anyone elaborate on the discussion a few threads ago about why sakura is popular despite having no dance or vocal talent. Something about, akb made her just rly good at stage presence or something?

She's supposed to have no talent, but her skill level jumps all over the place. I think it's all an act to make her seem like the "girl next door" that would help her in AKB48.

Why would companies spend money on vocal training when they can just fix it in post? Why would they spend money on a private jet when they can save money and use it to boost visibility?

And that was before she even started PD48. And AKB48 really get training at all, so most of her work is probably herself, and since shes a huge fan of Red Velvet and Irene she probably models herself on them.
