Tfw no friends that like kpop bc the girls that do in my area are weird koreaboos

>I love blackpink and red velvet.

>Lisa is my bias 💗

The fandoms are weird as shit and creep out my Korean friends so no one talks about kpop in my group

after a girl stalked one of the guys for WEEKS after finding out he was Korean it’s now taboo and no one will mention it.

No. 232787

I can't speak about this anywhere else thanks op lmao

>Who's your favorite band? Who's your bias?

It used to be DBSK in 2008 (Jaejong was my bias), lost interest in K-pop for years and recently got into it again because of BTS. It's very hard to pick a bias with them, they're all talented and genuine, but I guess Taehyung?

>What do you think of the weird kpop fandoms that are popping up and the crazy fans that come with them?

they're nothing new, they've been around since the first Hallyu wave

>Any comebacks you're looking forward to?

bts's Face Yourself album, I'm interested in how they'll discuss the darker aspects of self love.

ayyy thanks for giving me a place to sperg out OP

I've been casually into kpop for a few years now (I liked a few Orange Caramel, 2NE1, and SNSD songs in middle and high school), never really got into it beyond a superficial level (partially because I primarily listen to hard/alt rock but mostly because of the fans, honestly, I met a few too many weird and racist kpop fans and it put me off the whole thing). I've been big into BTS lately though. I liked a few of their songs casually but I didn't actually become a fan until I listened to Yoongi's mixtape. I appreciate how candid he is about his struggles with his mental health in the past and I find his near-arrogance about overcoming it inspiring. Self-love is important but I like thinking of overcoming emotional/mental struggles as kicking my own ass lol and he embodies that, in a way. He just seems like a cool dude lol. It's hard to say who my next favorite member is, I really like all their contributions and personalities.

I follow BTS because they're a bunch a sweet and cute guys. I don't really like most their music thought, but I enjoy watching their MV, dancing, nice outfits, Vlives, etc…
I don't know if it's really a bias but I really like Taehyung of course he is very beautiful but he also seems to have a cool and easy going personality, I'm a bit jealous of his super pretty face lmao.
I'm looking forward to their face yourself album, I still think the title is kinda cringy…

Me too, and I can't believe I'm actually jealous of a whole grown ass man but I have never seen a more ethereal looking person. He also just has such a unique, adorable personality. He's in that fine line between retarded and genius which makes him even more interesting.

>>232795
Yoonji's mix tape and the songs he produced for BTS like "Tomorrow" is what drew me to them the most. He has that rare sincerity you don't often see in K-pop and his voice while delivering his lines is so…hot and intense? Especially when he goes hard like in his Cypher 4 verse

Jhope's mixtape was pretty neat too, you can definitely see RM's influence (the literary references) and Suga's(the savagery) but he still has his own unique 100% Hobi sound and I love it.

I'm kind of the same way. Aside from the Cyphers and the rap line's mixtapes I barely listen to their music, I like them as personalities more than anything and enjoy stuff like Run BTS! more than their music (for the most part).

>>232809
>He's in that fine line between retarded and genius
LMAO accurate. He comes off as a bit slow to me —— not like "stupid" slow, just very unhurried and chill. Plus he's kind of a dork, it's very endearing.

Run BTS is such good wholesome fun. I'm really looking forward to their new show, especially since it'll be very different from Run and we finally get to see the darker side of the boys.

Used to follow DBSK in 2008 as well, hi fellow oldanon. I'm not into Kpop idols anymore, but still into Korean music (indie and rap scene). With a special exception for BTS, to nobody's surprise.

Couldn't have said it better. That guy inspired me so many characters, it's crazy.

>>232809
>Yoongi's mix tape and the songs he produced for BTS like "Tomorrow" is what drew me to them the most.

That was the big draw-in for me as well, along with their honesty, chemistry, generosity, talent and genuine passion for music. I really can't pick a favourite member, they all have something.

Not gonna mention all the aspects of Kpop I condemn because there's another thread for that, but as another anon said cringey fandoms and petty fanwars have always existed. Kpop used to be a big part of my life and it allowed me to bond with my still years and years later best friend, so I'm thankful for that at least.

Thanks based op

Anyway, I just wanna say how much i love this new bop from BoA. It's such a blast from the past for me. Sounds like something reminescent from that Girls on Top era (btw I always wanted to have the hairstyle she sports on that MV) but with a modern twist. I love it so much.

I mean most of kpop is shit (or at least very lazy) musically speaking, it would be a joke for anyone to say they're in it for the intricate and subtle sound. And there is nothing wrong with enjoying it for the fashion, the cuteness or the sweet personality of the idols, at least is self aware.

they have a variety show and solo music, plus non-music endeavors, it's pretty reasonable to like them for reasons besides the music they release as a band. I get where you're coming from but you're basically just complaining about people being attracted to generally attractive people lol.
>or are BTS armys just fucking nuts all the time
this is true though lol. I think it's a side-effect of BTS being managed by such a relatively small label. Early BTS fans knew they had to hype the fuck out of them or they'd pass under the radar and that fan culture remained and spread to new fans, despite the fact that they don't need to be hyped anymore. That's just my largely-uninformed hypothesis though.

Armys can be tiring and imbecilic to the core. But BTS themselves are just seven guys who do stuff and are, seemingly, actually nice people and get along well. Their really young obsessive fandom sucks, but that’s no reason to rag on the group, they can’t control that.

It's also been really cool to follow them since the very first solo.

I feel so dumb saying this but big bang flower road hit me really hard when it came out. And I'm not sure if it's because he has to serve his time and that they will be taking a break or what. Like I would like to think with how big they are they wouldn't disband over what he got busted on(was super late to finding out about the pot and other things), not up their ass about everything cause I'm mostly here just for the music.

Tldr; up set that big bang is on hiatus and not wanting it to turn out that they are really just braking up.

I feel similarly, Big Bang and 2ne1 are the only k-pop groups I've ever been emotionally invested in. I'm mostly just around for the bops and fashion. The weed scandal/overdose really fucked with me. I've always been kinda worried about TOP and Bom's mental health.

Any other fandom is just as bad, but BTS has the international thing going, so you get a lot of 10-13 yo kids from the Philippines with access to youtube and no idea of appropriate behavior.
EXO has a shit ton of Thai fans and they used to be just as spammy in 2013-2015. BB was more local, so it was more KKT/Line spam or Japanese delulu “stans”.

Armys (or is it Armies?) losing their shit over that one internet radio show set up in a random Canadian teenager's room was fucking amazing. Dude just offered an hour of Kpop for his 12 listeners and Armies started stirring up shit about BTS "paving the way" for Kpop in the west and even that BTS transcends the label of Kpop. The whole harassment campaign got started by a BTS fan supposedly in her late 30s or even 40s.

HAHA FUCK I would’ve laughed it wasn’t so sad.

The worst thing imo is that BTS to me really do seem to be against shit like homophobia, sexism etc. but of course these idiots are never satisfied and have to push all this imaginary and- worst of all- plain racist shit to feel good about their own racism and feel self-important. They even feel the need to bring up shit like the skin color and gender/presumed sexuality of any westerner that interacts with them without it ever being even remotely relevant.

Imagine being incapable of ever seeing anything beyond skin color, gender and sexuality. Must be fucking miserable.

I like how these people always conveniently forget the time Jimin met Shawn Mendes and then yelled "WOW HE'S HANDSOME" as they were walking away lol.

I honestly think stuff like this is a reaction to the fact that a lot of black/brown BTS fans know that Korean's can be racist against people with darker skin tones and prefer "white foreigners", and they're so afraid of idols they like being racist that they flip it on its head. It's sad tbh.

No. 252255

There's that show Hello Counselor, there they frequently have darker skinned guests complaining just how hard they have it. E.g.

He awkward looking when they debuted, but he grew up to be so handsome, I think bighit is pushing him to have a cooler persona to fit the pretty but arrogant trope. Jin is supposed to be BTS's visual but I think they're giving this role to V now and they want him to act the part (Jin was also asked to act cool and cold when BTS debuted). He even joked about it not too long ago when he said "I thought I was the visual now?".

OT but I honestly feel so bad for Jin. Ever since debut people have always acted like him being a “super visual” was his only function within the group and now he can’t even have that. Plus he was originally trained to be an actor but he still hasn’t gotten a role while Tae got his first drama role years ago. People act like Jin’s only role within BTS is as mom and “pink princess uwu” and I just feel so bad for him.

I think I'm just drawn to the fantasy/escapism aspect of it.

I wouldn't feel too bad as long as you aren't obnoxious about being a kpop fan and just treat it like any other interest. Plus BTS seems to attract a lot of older fans, especially because of songs like Spring Day.

yeah same same i knew about 2ne1 and Girl's G back then but didn't get really into it until recently. I'm glad i found the anti-kpop thread to stop me from becoming an obnoxious fan.

Songs like Moving on, Spring day, Pied Piper and 134340 or just their visuals/videos are what keep me stuck in the bts/kpop world

Idk if ashamed is the right word but I feel guilty because I find Jeno from NCT Dream really, really attractive despite the fact he’s a literal baby who just turned 18. The Dreamies especially have this cutesy childlike theme going too which kind of makes it worse imo. It’s obviously nothing I would ever act upon and I do think he looks older than the rest of Dream but it still makes me feel iffy.

I feel especially weird because Doyoung is basically his mom and me and DY are the same age (96-liners)

24. BTS is coming to Germany in October and my boyfriend has expressed interest in going because he’s interested in their hip hop/EDM stuff. I’ll admit to showing it to him because I really liked Spring Day’s video.

I'm 28, so I guess I win for now lol.

But in my defense, I liked k-pop since I was around 13 years old. Bless BoA. This was actually a new song when I got into it.

It's interesting how diverse k-pop fans became over the years. But I have to say that k-pop fans were also way more respectful and less cringy back when the community was smaller. I love BTS, but damn ARMYs are so obnoxious compared to how Cassies were back when TVXQ was at their legendary status.. I believe you when you say a lot of ARMYs are literal children. It sucks, because it makes me hesitant to call myself one too. So I feel your pain (even more so since I'm 10 years older). It's also weird when you're a teacher like me, and your students like the same k-pop groups.

i guess it makes sense anon, since the fanbases are so much larger now. the larger they are, the more assholes are gonna be, so the assholes are gonna be more visible. plus BTS fans are the largely the same flavour as 1D fans from 4 years ago: young, immature, and way too defensive of their idols, whom they hero-worship. it's not a good recipe. but just like any other fandom, there are chill fans, they just tend to be quieter and therefore get less of the press.

i also love BTS, but i would never call myself an army lol.

speaking of which, who are everyone's "biases" for BTS? (and any other Kpop groups for that matter). I'm curious. mine is JK, but my "bias wrecker" is PJM

I guess the ones I liked first were typical babby's first bias choice when it comes to BTS: V and JK, they just always catch my attention first in pics and videos. I just love me some mentally challenged hot boys, I guess. But Jimin's personality and demeanour have to be my favourite though, and for some reason I have dreams where he pops up for a few seconds? It's odd. Jin is funny and I like watching his mukbangs, Suga and RM are interesting, talented, funny and lowkey bestboys imo, like the backbone of the group. Jhope is fun to watch when he's not trying too hard, and I wish he'd bring back Hope on The Street. I could watch the boy dance for hours. I guess I don't really have a favourite, OT7 or nothing.
>>252512
Ah, another old Cassie teacher here! Wonderful. Who was your favourite in TVXQ?
I do remember fandoms being different too, but not any less cringy or full of fights and drama. Back in the day the biggest fandoms got the same criticism as the bts fandom nowadays. ELFs and Cassies fought as much as armys and exols do now, vips acted as "we're too good for kpop, kings, we rule this" etc as armys do, and sones were as full of dumb young guys and creepy old uncles as onces. The amount of fan content being churned out is massive though, especially on twitter and youtube. But I guess that's because making the content has gotten easier.

I'm indifferent to most of the BTS members, but I honestly like Jimin. His voice and face both seem to be pretty hit or miss with most people, but I think both are cute. His slim body is nice too. I also like that he at least pretends to be modest and doesn't act arrogant on camera.

I'm being a cool big sister by taking my "ARMY" little sister to see them live this fall after she begged, so I'm glad that I at least actually like one of the members and a couple of their songs.

I’ve been on a break from BTS and the fandom for a while but my bias since day 1 was Tae and he remains on top. Beyond how insanely pretty he is and how soothing his voice is (when he’s not growling or screaming lol) there is just something so… ethereal about him? Not just his beauty but his entire demeanor, quirkiness and being really adorable and precious in literally everything he does (i think someone upthread described it as him threading the line between genius and retarded? lmao)… He’s been my muse for a long while and I’ve based so many characters off of him.

Also this is weird as hell but it’s like no matter how much sleazy fanservice he does he still seems really innocent and pure- like he doesn’t understand what the stuff he’s doing actually implies? He just seems so… clueless and off-stage he’s as far from all that as you could possibly get. Makes me wonder if he does it just because he thinks that’s how it’s supposed to be and what’s expected of him and just sort of detaches himself whenever he goes on stage? Probably 500% projection but still

If you’re really that embarassed and tortured by your love for something, there is nothing forcing you to keep listening. If you want to stop liking kpop then stop.

I do like kpop and idols but I'm always reluctant to really get into it. So much of the industry revolves around personality and I always worry I'm going to end up putting time and money into someone who could end up being a prick.

Yoongi's mixtape was what got me into BTS so I'd say he's my bias but I like JK a lot too, I feel like I can relate to him because he's my age and shares a lot of my interests (video games, music prod., video editing and filmmaking etc.) 10/10 would hang out with.

Also I really like Jin. Yeah he's probably the least talented but I like his attitude a lot, I feel like he's just generally a pretty mature person (and husband material lmao). Also as a college dropout I admire the fact that he was physically attending university while being an idol.

As for other groups, the only other group I've been listening to lately is Stray Kids, and I'd say everyone in their 3RACHA subunit is my bias. Especially Bang Chan.

I’m also really enjoying the vibe from this new group (G)Idol. They’re filling the hole left by BlackPink because they haven’t had a comeback in so long, one of the members of this group was actually a trainee at YG for 5 years and was supposed to be in BlackPink but apparently got kicked out because she was secretly dating someone. That’s fucked up

Nice! My bias was/still is Yunho. I haven't seen much drama from the comms I was in, but surely not everyone was innocent. I agree with you and >>252517 that it's because of the size of the fanbases, especially the western ones, so more obnoxious western fans at least. And just social media/youtube in general. Back in the days TVXQ was popular, youtube wasn't as mainstream as it is now, hence less k-pop spammers in the comment sections.
My BTS bias is also Jungkook btw. It's not helping that he's the youngest, but it's hard to choose differently. Suga (who luckily is a far less age gap) is a close second for me, though.

Unpopular opinion but I also think jhope is cute/sexy, even if he isn't the most photogenic at times - that's something I definitely relate to myself. I don't think it has anything to do with his fame. Pretty sure if he was a regular dude I worked with or something I'd still feel the same.

Boygroups are inconsequential to my kpop experience. Sure there's a few songs here or there that I like, but I basically only click with girl groups or soloists.

Yeah he looks so thin and his rap feels so out of energy too. I'm guessing the Suran scandal must have somrthing to do with that partially.
Also, I might be biased since I dislike the new album, it seems he's much more excited about songs that are more agressive or more leaning to hip hop an this Come Back is like almost the oposite of that. There's not really a song that "feels more Suga" this time.
I hate this because I really likehis stuff when he actually puts in some effort.

I've noticed Suga is smiling more often and it's hard to read. Whether he's genuinely happy or putting up a front. I do agree with the anti thread that he's a walking skelly.

I agree he's hard to read, especially since everything is a front and he so rarely does any one-on-one content (vlives, etc., though even then of course he has to mitigate what he says). Of course he'd say "wow I'm so happy and grateful for everything!" even if he's depressed right now. We'd probably have to wait for another mixtape to get any actual insight into how he's doing.

the only reason I do that with Suga is because he's admitted to being depressed and either considered or attempted suicide before based on his lyrics.

yep compare those to pic related, which is very recent. He's turning himself into a goddamn dorito. I think he got the jaw shave because of his weight tbh, when he gains weight it goes right to his face and he's clearly insecure about it. I don't normally like nitpicking/overanalyzing idols' weight but the way he's constantly contradicting himself about food (saying "Oh I'm skinny because I forget to eat" or "I just don't enjoy eating" and then later saying stuff like "it's hard to diet, sometimes I get so hungry I can't sleep" or blatantly refusing food to avoid guilt over it later and calling himself overweight when he clearly isn't) is a red flag to me.

no offense but you guys are delusional. his jaw line is not from fillers because he jaw looks reduced. i had DOUBLE jaw surgery done and yes recovery is long and awful but suga just had a mandible jaw reduction which lots of idols have done (yoona, hyoyeon, yuri, wendy, etc). it wouldn't be as an invasive jaw surgery and the downtime for it isn't that long. look up celia and sonia from youtube. they had one done. when you guys hear jaw shave you're reading about double jaw orthognathic surgery which is a totally different beast.

Still feels a little weird without Jonghyun, but I liked the songs from this EP. They didn't fill his place, and the homages seemed well placed in the video. Definitely looking forward to the next one.

AOA's comeback was good, too. The aesthetic of the video was really lighthearted and fun. It felt like there'd be a hole without Choa but they filled the gaps pretty well.

The ticket sale for BTS in Berlin hasn't even started but it's already a mess. 2 days before the sale begins the pre-pre-sale gets cancelled and all the expensive tickets get even more expensive because of some fee that is only 10 euros in Amsterdam but 40 euros in Berlin, fml.

not really, I actually got into when I was older. I spent basically all of my teen years refusing to listen to anything that was seen as "uncool" among my friend group (so I basically only listened to various genres of rock music) and it's nice just listening to fun pop songs now. I mean I still like the bands I used to listen to but I cringe worse at the fact that I used to listen to NOTHING but Queen and Led Zeppelin when I was 15 and thought I was cool for doing so lol. It helps that my obnoxious weeb days are over and I'm self-aware about how cringe a lot of kpop is, so I don't really buy/wear merch or advertise that I like it.

I can't believe BTS is so popular either though, despite liking them. Their success is pretty surreal. The same types of girls who made fun of me for liking Japanese media in high school purely on the grounds that it wasn't in English are now """stanning""" a Korean group lol.

I still check out those K-netizen translations sites out of boredom, but I'm really not into K-pop as much now as I used to be when I younger. I think I've just outgrown it. I still like the sound of some K-pop songs, but I've really become more jaded by the industry's practices and don't get involved in fandom-related content at all nowadays.

I also cringe looking back about how much I ate up MBLAQ and U-KISS when they were relevant. I thought these boy bands were everything. It is a bit disappointing knowing that both groups are dead now and lots of the members spent years without much to gain from being idols in the end. Hell, GO from MBLAQ is now a full-time streamer and has admitted that he makes more from streaming so far than from his whole time in MBLAQ.

I have to say, seeing how angry and full of hate and/or confusion some people get about BTS makes me chuckle a bit. As someone who's looking at it from a pretty neutral POV, the people who autistically complain about them seem to me like mirror images of the rabid portion of the fans. At least the fans get some enjoyment out of this, what do the constant complaining artists get?

that’s because they’re the same brand of people. people who obsessively “like” something and others who obsessively hate on it are two sides of the same coin.

i feel like a lot of them are also from fandoms of less successful groups that are bitter over bts being put in a pedestal, armys being insufferable or just going out of their way for the sake of being every bit as obnoxious as the armys they claim to hate so much, or a combination thereof.

I can kind of understand it tbh, BTS is massive right now and it seems like they're only going to get more popular. I don't get the rabid hate but it's definitely annoying being constantly reminded of a thing you find grating (though I do get the feeling some of them are bitter fans of other groups). It reminds me of when I was in high school and all my friends LOVED wrestling except for this one friend who just wasn't into it at all and she would get really angry any time we brought it up lol.

that's literally what happened though. unless you mean that he ceased to be "underground" once he signed on as a trainee in which case you're correct lol. they were still going to be a rap group, just not an underground one. kind of like ROCKBOTTOM, most of whom are former trainees but definitely not an idol group.

>>255661
>>255665
you're right that they were originally a hip-hop group but yoongi had multiple opportunities to leave. iirc he considered leaving a couple times but BigHit wanted him on (probably because they'd sunk a lot of time and money into him already and were hoping it'd pay off) and kept giving him incentives, like paying for his college etc. unless BigHit was literally blackmailing or threatening him he was absolutely not "forced" to do anything. Agreeing to a lifestyle in which you're expected to look a certain way isn't being "forced". Pretty much the only way someone could be "forced" to be an idol is by their parents, and yoongi had already cut himself off from his.

most of them aren’t ugly but somewhat odd-looking, dahyun being the most prominent example. i just don’t understand why people screech about them being such a visual group when most of them are on the lower end of average when it comes to looks among kpop girl groups.

>tbh Mina and Tzuyu are the prettiest of the group
Nah, Tzuyu maybe but not Mina. Sana’s way prettier. There’s something really odd about Mina’s face to me; I think it has to do with her nose being kind of wide, her lips are really thin when she smiles and her teeth+gums are quite big by comparison? There’s just something uncanny about it imo. I don’t think she’s ugly at all, just kind of odd-looking for a Kpop idol.

Can I just say how much I adore AKMU?

I'm sad that they are currently unable to make music due to the Chanhyuk being in army.But Suhyun last year did an acting job and currently she is doing youtube, where she talks about diet, makeup, does covers, etc. She always emphasizes health and it was really good to see how she not only talked about her diet for the acting job, but actually filmed herself going to the gym. I think that youtube really fits her, since she is very charismatic and her smile is simply charming.

Plus once I was going through pann-choa posts and some girls posted about her, it seems that there are young girls who look up to her and they really appreciate the fact that she doesn't want double eyelid surgery nor nose surgery (if I'm not wrong she said about this in one interview) and are fascinated by her high self-esteem. It's calming to see that there are people who set a healthy example for younger audience.

https://pann-choa.blogspot.com/2018/01/teens-stories-akmu-suhyun-is-cool-i.html

In older interviews Akmu talked about their childhood, it seems that they lived for some time abroad and their family was so poor that both siblings decided to choose home-schooling so they could make it easier financially for their parents.

All in all, I think that they both are very talented, her brother is extra-ordinary songwriter and Suhyun voice is very unique too!

Btw if anyone is interested in Suhyun channel is called MochiPeach, most of the videos has subtitles and the intro is adorable.

She definitely looked the prettiest at debut. I genuinely think she has one of the prettier faces in Red Velvet but I feel like they always give her bad makeup and styling that just doesn’t compliment her features very well. A lot of the time some stylists and makeup artists seem downright incompetent and it’s definitely a thing with most groups.

Thankfully she isn’t terribly botched like what they did to poor Yuta a while back. He’s recovered fairly nicely from the horrifying whatever-implants though, I think, which is a relief.

I think that kpop males are probably the ultimate fakeboi goals. They're like the perfect combination of anime bishounen and cute lesbian that they're all always striving for. They rarely display any typical unsavory male behaviors. They even get paid to act out fans' yaoi fantasies with other cute kpop men, and people praise them for acting feminine or doing girly things like wearing makeup. The gifts that they recieve from their fans are like the ultimate amazon wish list. Also, unlimited attention.

I won't lie though, I genuinely really like the plastic doll/man/woman/baby look that a lot of the kpop men have. They'll definitely look weird as hell when they age though.

I checked it out and I thought it was just okay. I wouldn't listen to it twice, kek. The vocals weren't strong, and honestly I would expect more from a professional release. The vocals were kinda YouTube cover-tier imo. I don't think the point of Twice is strong vocals though, just cute girls, and they're doing that pretty well! I also automatically have a soft spot for songs where a female vocalist addresses another girl. I get that it's a cover, it's not their choice and they probably have no idea what they're saying anyway, but it makes the song somewhat more enjoyable for me.

I'm not really a kpop listener, but I sometimes listen to things people link here and friends have showed me some songs. From the songs I've heard, the vocals are kind of weak in general. Is not singing very well the norm? Are there some strong vocalists out there?

I'm not sure how you define "strong" vocalists, but idols' with stronger singing abilities only really exhibit them on variety shows.

Kpop is the full package (cute girls/boys in cute clothes and cute dances), so vocals don't matter as much when it comes to the actual singles cause it's gonna sell whether or not you've got Whitney Houston levels of singing. There was one competitive show where the entire concept was "hey, let's get cute girls with no prior singing or dancing training or ability and turn them into a group", and honestly, the final group doesn't feel any different from another other girl group when it comes to stage performances.

Plus you have groups with very disparate amounts of singing skills, so the best you can do to equalize the difference is by reducing how much your better singers stand out.
Kpopalypse wrote a bit about the process used to produce and mix vocals in pop:
>Common studio practice for recording girl groups is to get each girl into the studio individually to sing the entire song, and then mix and match the results to fit, also using ghost vocalists where needed. Obviously if all the girls sound more or less the same, this is a benefit, because it means that they can be blended together and substituted for each other easily. Equally good or equally bad doesn’t really matter as long as they’re equally equal.

BlackPink’s new song is here!! First impressions are I like it, the music video is amazing and there are some catchy parts to the song. This is more rap than singing so it’s not my favourite genre and I don’t think I like it more than ‘As if it’s your last’ but i think it will definitely grow on me.

Where? Honestly asking because I've never heard that before, might just be an unfortunate regional interpretation.

It's most likely a throwback/reference to patois/reggae (See Sister Nancy's "Bam Bam" which is an oft-sampled/covered classic and also has the line "whatta bum bum") because that kind of music is trendy right now.

DDDD is a decent successor to Whistle IMO with more 2NE1 inspo but I do agree with anon who said this gen of girl groups is lackluster in comparison. Every lead BP single so far has the same structure of changing the song's flow very significantly during the bridge followed by a chorus lead by music with their voices as accents and they should really stop relying on that exact formula. I'm saying this as a huge BP fan.

‘ddu’ means black, ‘du’ means black, and ‘du-du’ is korean onomatopoeia for gun shots, hence the gun shot dance gestures and other use of gun imagery. pretty clever, imo.

i loved the scene with jisoo in the pink wig and the men with gun phones. it’s a pretty good jab at netizens who act like good fans when looking at the perfect image of an idol, then turn on them the second they slip up and aim their metaphorical guns (hate) at them while hiding behind anonymity.

I'm english and for me, bum bum is what a child calls their rear. I am used to hearing it in a different less babyish context in reggae, etc. But since BP are not from the carribbean and presumably don't know the first thing about patois it comes off as cringey to me. There's not even a hint of reggae flavour in the song anyway? It just seems weird and off to me, but I am definitely nitpicking.

I became a Shawol a week before Jonghyun's death, but it's still had a great toll on me. Even now, I still can't watch anything SHINee related without getting upset, which is somewhat annoying as the only shinee content I've watched was during my first week.
What fucks me up the most about his death though, is that during the time he was killing himself, me and my friend were joking around and laughing at SHINee videos, without being aware that one of the members were dying at the very same second. I don't think I'll ever forget that Sunday because of it

I understand why they are doing the comeback, and I think it's probably helping the band members through the rough times, but it is so tragic to me. It'll never be the same again. Idk why, I thought they would've disbanded.

Celebrity deaths usually don't affect me much, and I was never much a fan of SHINee (though I have gotten into them recently!) but something about his death really hurt. I guess because he just looked so sweet and happy in pictures/videos. Also his letter, like anon mentioned, was very relatable.

Kinda… random? But does anyone know Yeonwoo's true height? No way in hell she's only 169cm. Much like Tzuyu, they are probably lying about her height to make her more waifu material.

They also claim Jooe is 165cm, but she looks downright tiny next to Yeonwoo, so either they are lying about Jooe's or YW's height, and I think it's more likely to be YW's, since she pratically towers over the other girls. Her proportions are great, though.

Yeonwoo being taller than 169 cm would make her more qualified for modeling gigs. Assuming that they are, I don’t get why they’d need to lie about her height. Also I used to agree with Nancy being the visual but the more I look at Yeonwoo, the more captivating I find her.

Honestly I find both Yeonwoo and Jane to be prettier than Nancy. I don’t think Nancy is ugly by any means but there’s something so odd about her face- it’s like it’s way too small/narrow to fit her face but not in the ‘uwu small face’ way that the Korean ideal is all about but in a way that makes her head look oddly broad by comparison? Idk if I’m making any sense though

Yeah, DBSK had fans breaking into their dorms, they had a fake taxi service just to follow them around between schedules, they were sent period blood and had their phones tapped so they'd know if someone texted a girl. Since then every one of the 5 except Yunho has had video or audio released of them lashing out at fans at around 2007-9 when it was at its worst.

Hm I haven’t heard this. BAP debuted nearly at the same as EXO. I liked them from the go: fun, weird concept, exciting albeit a little gimmicky music (but that’s par the course for kpop), Bang Yong-guk…but then they started releasing coffee-house lite music and they lost their concept. I don’t think they would have been as intensely popular as BTS because their concept/image was less rebellious and seen as fighting the “man.” BTS’s highlight for me was Run/The most beautiful moment in life, and then things went downhill I guess for mainstream appeal. Long rant aside, if BAP had a stronger image and more mature, cohesive approach from the start, I think they would’ve been more successful. But their company’s screwed them. My 2¢

I’ve really warmed to Jisoo in the time since BP debuted. Usually visuals are content with coasting by on beauty alone, but she’s really stepped up her vocals and has become more stable than the rest of her group.

No. 266595

agreed. i like that she has such a low, kinda soul-esque voice too since it’s not too common among kpop girl singers. rosé has such a high-pitched, overly saccharine voice that sounds like a little girl but i think jisoo kind of counterbalances that in a way that makes them sound interesting together. i think they compliment each other very well.

i really wish jennie stick to rapping so they stop cutting jisoo’s lines short just to make room for jennie because jisoo is a way better singer while jennie is by far the best rapper of the group. i’d hesitate to even call jennie’s throaty shouting singing. it just sounds like she has trouble breathing and it stresses me out.

i'm probably biased since i almost only listen to older groups now, but to me the best thing about the old era (anywhere from until 2008 to 2012 depending on who you ask) was the variety shows and similar content. cassies had insane drama back then but the all about dbsk videos and the shows they were on made it easy to become a fan of someone because they gave each member a chance to shine. i feel like these days you hear the same stories on variety shows all the time and idols are more used to talking on things like v app than a tv show. i used to laugh so hard at dbsk varieties when jaejoong would start talking and a manager would step in to stop him because he was ruining the cold image they set for him.

i'm really glad stan twitter and current fan culture wasn't a thing in 2007 though. imagine the tweets from elfs and cassies and the fan wars between wonder girls and snsd. there's STILL very active yunjae shippers fighting online every week.

Who do you guys think it's going to be the next boy group to rise to fame? I'm betting on SEVENTEEN, mostly because their group dynamics remind me of BTS, they're good dances and I feel like having Woozi and Hoshi constantly helping in composing and choreographing for the group gives them a chance to stand out (not that they're the only idols that do but you get what I mean), that said I have this really strong feeling that at least one of the members is going to leave the group more sooner than later. I used to think MONSTA X had a better chance than SEVENTEEN but I feel like they still need to find their sound and image, while the latter needs another big hit like Mansae.

what little i’ve seen of seventeen i like. the only reason i fear their popularity exploding is that carats seem to be some of the more peaceful kpop fandoms and it would suck for them to become the next ratmys

monsta x is nice and i’d love for them to get more recognition. kihyun gives me pretty strong suga vibes, both visually and personality-wise, though he lacks that pissy attitude that i’ve seen people complain about suga for. i think it’s pretty cute that the two of them are friends too lol

So, SM just announced three new SMRookies, all of them Chinese. Given NCT China’s debut is supposedly just around the corner, we’ll probably see them debut any second now. It’s obviously just speculation at this point but makes perfect sense.

SM was pushing the whole NCT18 thing with Empathy (since they were 18 members) so I think it’s a little odd they’re adding even more members in 2018 but I guess they need to increase the hype for NCT China so here we are.

Edited: Apparently some retard was running around spreading false information so I had to correct it. Xiaojun was born in ‘99, not ‘90.

Here's the explanation for the word in Korea: https://namu.wiki/w/%EA%B9%9C%EB%91%A5%EC%9D%B4
If you put it into google translate, here's what comes up:
> Usually when Koreans write a suffix called -new (-둥이), they write positive meaning such as cuteness and finesse.
But the word 'nigger' (or ' nigger ') is an exception. The same is true of the English word "Negro", but in Korean, only the word "nigger" Stupid Let's be careful because certification that there is no liberalism can hit all kinds of bombings that become direct and spit from a vacancy.
> Let's not say that people like black people , Southeast Asia, Southwest Asian people are niggers or niggers. After all, Rover, East Asian and Koreans are not even saying what they say.

There is a word for black people, 흑인.

No. 269530

>>269440

Here, have a real translation.


"When most Koreans use the -둥이 suffix, it's usually meant for things small and cute, and is used in a positive connotation.But the word '깜둥이'(as well as '검둥이')is an exception.
It is similar to the English word 'Negro', but in Korean, the word 깜둥이 was used to mean people who are stupid or uneducated, so you need to be careful, since saying this in public can get your ass beat.

The reason for this is, the -둥이 suffix is only used for kids, REALLY little kids at that. You are treating them like a 3~4 year old based on their race and skincolor alone. And actually, the word -둥이 , even if it contains a positive connotation("cutie")if used towards mature adults that you aren't even close to, is really just the fucking worst."

I've never seen a korean person write like that, but okay.

>so first jimin said the word "깜둥이" which is a korean racial slur. HOWEVER. IT CAN MEAN DIFFERENT THINGS IN DIFFERENT CONTEXT. he said the word to jungkook, saying jimin himself is gonna get tan because of being in the sun so much. the word "둥이" means cute/lovely person. for example:

>귀염둥이: cute person
>트둥이: twice cuties (nickname for twice members
>As you can see 둥이 mean cute person."깜" means black, derived from the word "껌정색" which means the color black. So what jimin did was add "깜" and "둥이" to get "깜둥이" which would mean "cute black person" literally, but he meant he's gonna get tan, so he's referring to himself as a cute person with black skin. NOT A RACIAL SLUR. HE WASNT TRYING TO OFFEND ANYONE OR BE RACIST
They're constantly complaining or mocking each other for getting tan, do I highly doubt he'd call himself with a tan 'cute'.

>and honestly why would jimin ever say a racial slur about black people?he has no reason to be racist to them or be hateful. y'all remember Tony and chimchim?? jimin loved that guy. SO CONCLUSION: SIT DOWN AND STOP ACCUSING JIMIN OF RACISM OK thx for coming to my ted talk

I noticed how photoshopped Chenle was too yeah. Haechan looks off too. I think I hate Renjun's yellow hair the most, at least the others have some tones of brown or orange.
Nothing can save yellow hair, and it doesn't look good on him. He looks so much better with dark hair.

Or maybe I just like natural hair colors on idols.

New TWICE japanese song. The intro actually made me think for a second it was going to be interesting, but no, it's the same cutesy sounding voices and repetitive dance hook "Let's go!".

I got into NCT during Boss era but even having seen all the hairstyles/colors he’s had before (and now after) that I still think he looks the best with dark, blood red hair. Yes it’s Hot Topic MCR teen angst edgy but Taeyong’s overall look just screams that anyway so it fits perfectly imo lol.

Everyone looked amazing during Boss era. The styling was ridiculously nice too imo. I wonder if they kicked out their old stylist.

He's probably the only idol that in my opinion could pull off pink hair. He looked the best in Cherry Bomb era.

Also, I hate to say this because I love Taeyong but is he looking weird to anyone else lately? I think he did something to his chin, it looks larger and I hate it.

He has one of the most beautiful faces in my opinion, even if some people here found him odd or weird looking. I guess I'll have to prepare myself for him to RUIN it completely.

I haven’t really thought about it? I love Taeyong but for his personality, not his looks. I think he looks amazing in certain styling and when he does no-one compares but without that I find other members nicer to look at. Now that you mentioned it I won’t be able to not look for it lol.

Also while we’re still nutting over best styling for NCT members, Doyoung looked so amazing in the Chain MV. That perfectly mussed hair styling framed his face nicely; I wish he’d kept it forever. He looked like some kind of doll to me, as tacky as that sounds lol.

Most of NCT dances have some really weird moves that would probably look really bad if only one member is doing them, but I think that's kind of what I like from their dances. They stand out with all the weird shit.

yeah, i do think xiaojun will look the best lean/toned. i just think hendery would look really cute/pretty as a smol twiggy twink bc he has those doe eyes + his facial features are quite soft, whereas with xiaojun his features are sharp and refined but distinctly masculine.

TL;DR xuxi is a doe-eyed chad, xj looks like a chad in the making and hendery looks like a doe-eyed twink

I know people have joked about SM idols being clones of each other for years but the little bit of cassiopeia in me that never died melts a bit with NCT. I don't actually always see that much of Jaejoong in Taeyong but there's also Jaehyun literally being called Jung Yunho. Even when I was a diehard cassie I was only at all attracted to Jaejoong, Yunho and Yoochun (no comment now) so being really into so many members of a group is a new feeling. They have some really great dancers and vocalists so I hope they get to show that off well but they really are one of the best groups visually imo

I looked for some more recent pictures and you may be right, or maybe he had fillers and it was swollen? But for a couple of months I did see him off. Especially on this photoshoot, his face looks so long there.

Yeah, I felt the same way about their last comeback (which I actually liked more, it was less generic). Lowkey wish they'd graduate the current dreamies and go back to songs like chewing gum. Seeing a boy group sing such cutesy stuff was a big part of why I liked dream.

Everyone looked very cute though and that's 80% of what I care about in NCT mvs at the end of the day. I follow them for their personality, looks, and dancing rather than the music. That goes double for dream now.

My favorite in NCT will always be Taeyong, but I remember really liking Doyoung in the Seventh sense video. The little eyebrow raise had me like hello theeere. As well as his voice.

Did anyone else really like the styling of Seventh Sense? A lot of fans always highlight all styling prior to Boss as terrible, but I really liked it. The outfit Mark had with the yellow sleeves was so cute on him too. All the concept photos are so good and I actually have some of them as my Desktop background.

oh god yes, Taeyong with glasses. I've never been so obsessed with someone's face before. To me he beats everyone in looks, even new China line; although Xiaojun has a very similar vibe to TY and I'm probably going to love him too.

Does anyone else ever think about their sexual preferences? I kind of hope TY's not gay. I would be happy for him if he was, but it kind of kills my attraction. Like for example, I really like Ten but I'm never attracted to him since I can tell he's gay, same with Winwin although I have my doubts sometimes about him. I hope this doesn't sound bad, I really have no problem with any of them being gay. And in theory you can still fantasize about them if they are, but it kind of ruins it to me. Anyone else feel the same or am I sounding like a huge asshole? Sorry in advance if I am. I would still love all of them, I will always like Taeyong mostly because I just find his stage presence incredible.

Jeffrey, Jeno, Renjun and (sometimes) Doyoung and Ten are also up there. I envision Henderson wrecking everyone in terms of visuals too judging by his killer side profile and looking like Ten’s goth sister.

Taeyong looks incredible sometimes but his features sometimes look really odd to me and these members look stunning literally all the time no matter how horrid the styling.

I wouldn't be surprised if they printed more of one member than another tbh but wouldn't they have more of printing less of the popular ones so crazy fans but 20 albums to get the right photobook?

Maybe you can look up amino or some kpop/got7 communities and find someone to swap with!

Jackson is decently popular and I'm sure you would find someone!
Please post which version you got, worst case maybe some farmers can swap!

What really irks me is that the 'right' photobook never guarantees good photocards - with the Turbulence album I got the most awkward looking card of Yugyeom and nobody wants to take it off me, fml

Picture very related

yeah that’s an odd photo to for them go with… either way, still a qt. he’s probably my second fave after jinyoung (spoken as someone who doesn’t actively follow them).

I saw Knets saying he’s an upgraded TY in terms of visuals and I just had to laugh. Wasn’t really moved but I’m actually looking forward to seeing Hand Dry in motion since he’s the most interesting to me.

He is though. His features give the same effect but are more refined and look far more natural and harmonic. Taeyong can look wonky at times but this guy doesn’t seem to have a single bad angle. (Spoken as someone who’s very fond of Taeyong.)

His jaw is way too small, he looks freaky.

he really does look like a human, chinese version of ty. that said, I still prefer normal ty and his wonky face.

fuck, nct china's visuals are going to be insane

tbh this will be the most visual nct unit by far and i’d argue they’ll be leaving most other boy groups behind in the dust

winwin and renjun are breathtaking, kun and chenle look super soft and squishable, yukhei and xiaojun are ridiculously handsome + the visuals of the century, hendery and yangyang are insanely pretty and soft-looking…

the best of everything really

Agree, he really reminds me of TY too and he's beautiful, but TY's still best since I love how squarish his face is too.

Xiao has a very V line jaw, he's going to be veeery popular with koreans. I'm more thirsty for Hendery photos right now, his initial photo had me meh, but he looks super good on the other ones.

Also, bring back green hair Taeyong, ok thanks.

I'm curious too. How is this group going to look? Any ideas about vocal/rapper/dancer positions? I don't get rapper vibes from the Rookies, maybe Xiao? That would make comparisons with TY even bigger.

I don't see Ten being in the group. I always got a vibe from him that he prefers solo work, and he suits solo work a lot. Lucas I see as a better fit for 127, he looks a lot older than the other Chinese members. He would stand out so much, since other members are a lot shorter than him.

I imagine vocal Chenle, Renjun, and Kun. Dancer Winwin (hope he gets lines lol) and a rookie (maybe Yang?), and for rapper one or two of the new kids. What do you guys think?
