Name a sadder more pathetic group in Kpop
i want a BTS scandal too, i'd love one of the members to do/say something really bad and then see the armys defending him and infighting over it. would be so entertaining as they're particularly insane even for kpop fans
I'm the anon who asked for it to be spoilered in the last thread and I was mostly kidding anyway>>263702
seconded, though honestly pretty much any girl at all would stir up a shitstorm. If she's pretty the more unstable fans would desperately call her ugly and nitpick her features, if she's ugly fans would bully her for not being "good enough", etc.
sadder? after school or nine muses
pathetic? big bang
Whoop. Thanks farmhands.>>263711
Which is crazy to me because I feel like a western pop stars enter fake relationships for the publicity. Harry Style and Taylor Swift milked there few months long relationship for entire albums. It’s so backward to me that Kpop stars can’t do the same.
I want one of the members to say something about finding dark skinned girls categorically unattractive.
Imagine the fallout.

Back in their first years they got those annoying questions they do to every rookie group about their ideal type and all of them said they preferred "pale skin, skinny and smol girlfriend that knows how to cook me uwu". Their fans just decided to have selective memory
I remember people getting triggered
over that and also about theirs and Exo's ideal girl's heights/weights.
Only RM mentioned pale, but the other stuff is also incrediby old-fashioned… Why would some teen want that?>Rap Monster: A sexy girl who can converse with me for a long time with a nice voice, is appropriately tall, has pale skin, feminine girl, looks good in a white T-shirt + Jeans + Red Converse High. >Jin: A girl whose looks and personality is similar to that of a puppy, whose good at cooking, kind and takes good care of me. >J.Hope: Likes books and takes good care of others, a girl who’s good at cooking. >Suga: Someone similar to me, someone composed and wise, who likes music.>Jimin: A girl who is nice and cute. Must be smaller than me.
Lol at his insecurity>V: Someone who becomes more charming by the day, someone who only takes care of me, someone who only loves me, someone who’s chic outdoors but makes me hot chocolate and has a lot of aegyo inside. Also a girl who spends the money I earn thrifty, who can give everything to my/our parents.
You can clearly see how much of a village idiot he is..>JungKook: Someone who’s at least 168 cm but smaller than me, is a good wife, good at cooking, smart, has pretty legs, and is nice. Also a girl who likes me, is good at singing.
>Rap Monster (181cm,64kg) – Suitable girls: 166-170cm,50kg>Jin (179cm,63kg) – Suitable girls: 166-160cm>J.Hope (176cm,56kg) – Suitable girls: 164-160cm,45kg>Suga (173cm,57kg) – Suitable girls: 160-155cm,43kg>Jimin (174cm,60kg) – Suitable girls: 161-159cm,40kg>V (177cm,58kg) – Suitable girls: 162-164cm,45kg>JungKook (176cm,61kg) – Suitable girls: 168cm,45kg
Says a lot about just how much they're lying about their own height when they want their gf to be less than 160cm.

V would make a great MGTOW.
But seriously those measurement are so excessive, they all want underweight gf (if they even understand how those numbers translalte IRL), I get that asians have smaller bones / hold less fat than other ethnicities, but still…
There is also nothing wrong with wanting a housewife or with being a housewife. Just because you don't want to be one doesn't mean that people who want a girl who can cook are inherently problematic

I haven't seen anyone in the regular kpop thread shitting on weebs>>263820
holy shit this is uncomfortable to look at
This is the saddest nosejob I've ever seen. What a shame for her. I hope she can get a rib graft or something to help salvage it.
Unfortunately nosejobs do always have the chance to turn out somewhat badly depending how one's body reacts (scarring, issues with cartilage and bone alignment shifting during healing) and k-pop stars are so pressured to pursue plastic surgery that it's no surprise a number of them end up with some bad results eventually, but this is so beyond an expected not-so-great result and simply reprehensible sloppy work by the surgeon.

Apparently, Jisoo from Black Pink claims to be 23 years old (born in 1995). How old does she look to you, anons? I think she must be in her late 20s. She looks noticeably older than the other girls in her group, which isn't a bad thing, but she's definitely not 23. I asked a friend that doesn't know about kpop how old the girl in this pic looks, and she said 35, kek
I'm sure this age change wasn't her own idea, but her company's. What motivates kpop companies to lie about idol's ages? Does being older make her less of an ideal waifu? Are kpop consumers only interested in younger girls? Is lying about the age of an idol a common practice in kpop? I'm pretty curious about this, because the whole thing seems pretty ridiculous to me.

Never thought that about Jisoo (since Rose also looks more mature than the other 2), but some other idols. I always thought Boa is in her 40s already. Seohyun, Irene and also definitely Whasa (sorry but she looks incredibly old for a 22 year old…)
I looked at more pictures since everyone disagreed, and I think this must have been what made me think she looked so much older. The other girls do look super young, and I think that Jisoo does get more mature styling overall, though they all seem to wear some pretty wacky stuff… Even if she really is 23, her mature features seem to be pretty rare among most kpop girls that all seem to be trying to look as young as possible (though I admittedly don't know many, so I could be wrong).
Is lying about ages a thing that happens in kpop in general though? I remember someone mentioned it in a previous thread with regards to Loona I think. >>263948
is right that lying about ages doesn't make much sense when there's a whole market of actual younger girls to hire, but I've got to imagine it has happened before

Many idols are from rich families, so maybe if daďdy is paying enough they let you debut even if you're already in your 20s (same for the really ugly ones).

This is the first result if you google "Jimin lips", kek.
i found it funny that after years of memes about sm having a factory to produce male idols who were like their older idols, they basically admit they have a never ending stream of teen boys, and pretty much everyone will have been called "______ 2.0" or a mix of X and Y idols.
personally i think they should've just expanded on the original exo two teams idea instead of this. have individual groups like dream and 127 and call it u when members collaborate rather than the groups blending together and the lineups always changing

TBH that is
a super unflattering pic in general. Like the other anon pointed out, in this video >>263975
she doesn't look as bad, and looks her age, too. I like Hwasa cause she seems more authentic than say, TWICE members.
Speaking of which…
""Blinks"" (i hate those fandom names) are buttblasted because of this cover. Funny though, because it's a song that belongs to JYP, the agency that owns TWICE. And honestly, I prefer their cover over Blackpink's. I think BP tries to hard, even if Twice doesn't try at all lmao
Also, this kinda stuff suits Tzuyu way more than the aegyo shit. The vocals are still weak as ever, though.

Agreed. I think she's overhyped as hell, but her not being dead for that performance makes me get her appeal a bit more.

Aw, I think she looks kinda cute like that. Better than whe she had super duper short hair, like pic related. Still, the look on the right is still her best, imo. Them Blinks were also mad as shit with this hair of hers, saying she copied Lisa. I mean, I know all blinks are probably 12 and stuff, but this is dumb even at that age.

Tzuyu always looks empty with her dead eyes, she is honestly too overrated.
Is this a song about being an amsterdam hoe?
I don't feel bad for them, tho, their only job is to dance around for 3 min in skimpy outfits, they can wear heels.
>buying t-shirts and posters or bands you like
okay seriously though why is kpop merch so…weird? i always see fans with plushies, trading cards, or those ugly light sticks. it seems rare for groups to sell things like t-shirts or posters, which is pretty basic merch for an entertainer to have (hell, even youtubers sell those)
what makes it worse is that:
1) plushies themselves aren't that strange but the fans are so creepy with them that it makes it weird
2) trading cards are a scam so that retarded people buy multiple copies of stuff until they collect all the cards/get their bias
3) light sticks are just stupid and most of them are hideous. it's understandable to have one if you're going to see the group in concert, but international fans will buy it just to say they own one. waste of money. and not to mention the other useless stuff that's marketed towards fans
what's wrong with a simple graphic tee or those little pin/button thingys? i guess since "stans" are dumb enough to buy anything, it doesn't matter (even though they simultaneously complain about how "being a kpop stan is so expensive!!!"…maybe stop buying dumb shit?)

anyone else think the existence of brockhampton makes the ""rap line"" of bts want to kill themselves? because i hope it does
>>265105>weren't some of them lied to by their company and told that they would be an all rap group?
nah. That's a meme/misinformation. They all knew they were going to be idols and could've left if they didn't like the way things were going.
anyway I just thought the brockhampton comparison specifically was a little weird. they have different goals, musical style, demographics, and perform in different industries. that's like saying "do you think the existence of [insert literally any American rapper or rap group] makes the rap line want to kill themselves". Hell even Migos would've been a better comparison seeing as a lot of BTS' rap is inspired by them.
>appealing to a much wider audience than chunky genderqueer fangirls
this especially makes the comparison fall apart seeing as Brockhampton is spearheaded by Kevin "THIS IS A GAYS ONLY EVENT" Abstract and have as a result collected a ton of queer fans/fangirls.

Loona stans are about to get even more annoying
the fake woke loona stans won't care, hardly anybody talks about the arms dealer funding at all. loona have already sexualised underage girls, the woke stans don't care because they want to fuck the underage girls anyway. they use gay fanservice, the woke stans don't care because they think it's representation and not some guys fetish. they've made jokes about eating disorders, lie about their ages to seem more uwu younger and barely legal, the sole stans don't care, they were still happy about the grimes thing when it happened even though it was after she got with musk.
loona are going to stay the top group for woke stans for a while because they can play the 'loona isn't KPOP, it's a unique project' card and try to seem unique and not like other kpop fans. strip away the fake edge and the songs that hide any vocals and they're just the same as any other girl group. more manufactured if anything because each girl is literally playing a character

>but the fact that his entire musical identity seems to be based around the fact he's gay is kinda disappointing
agreed 100%! imo it would have been a little more impactful if his approach was "yes i'm gay, but that doesn't define me"…instead it's just "i'm a gay idol! watch me make out with dudes! did i mention i'm gay?"
the diversity and LGBT representation is really cool but as >>266206
said, it makes it seem like he's using his sexuality to entice people instead of relying on the music alone.>>265708
Speaking of Amber, who are some other idols who are obviously not straight but are forced to pretend otherwise?
my bet is on sungjung from infinite. i didn't know anything about the group until they appeared on a variety show i watched, and from the moment he was on screen it was apparent that he's super gay. i find it hard to believe claims that he's just a flamboyant straight male, just like it's hard to believe amber is a straight tomboy instead of a lesbian. his sexuality is a huge elephant in the room that gets ignored and its kinda baffling

Ryeowook of Super Junior.
Seriously, watch the Mr. Simple M/V if you haven’t already. I dare you. You’ll know which one is him immediately, trust me.
there was a period for a while where Jaejoong was rumoured to constantly be fucking models in Japan, male or female. He's gone 15 years where the only concrete dating rumour was Jessica, but if he was outright gay it would've come out in that tape where he's blackout drunk and yelling at a stalker, unless he's so good at hiding it that he can talk about having a girlfriend while being incoherent enough to shout about how he hates Korean fans.
The biggest rumour he had that wasn't an obvious ship was Kim Hyun Joong, ha. They lived together for a bit, went travelling together, and apparently it was a pretty big fight when Jaejoong moved out and they barely interacted after that. Since KHJ is a bastard that can be easily explained though. The slightly less obvious rumours are interesting, especially since all of the rumoured gay and bi guys overlap and hang out in big groups. Jaejoong, TOP, GD, KHJ, Zico, a lot of the guys who're in drunken photos of 10+ guys including Hong Seok Cheon
Also I've noticed fans have somehow done a 180 and have concluded that Heechul is straight. He's just a weeb and was openly gay before debut, he's not a sassy straight guy.
I want to personally thank this anon because thanks to this gif I've discovered Seo Taiji's music and I've been listening it non-stop for hours.>>266271
>Speaking of Amber, who are some other idols who are obviously not straight but are forced to pretend otherwise?
He's not forced to act heterosexual or anything but I just can't see J-Hope as a 100% straight guy. Maybe he just seems femenine to me, idk. Even when I see him act more 'mature' and without those annoying screams…
>>265288>arms dealer funding
they aren't being funded by arms dealing anon stop believing everything you read online
do some research first
Really? I see J-hope as the least likely to be gay one out of BTS. Namjoon is the one who I see the most likely to be gay/bi
I would also say V but then again he is a backwards country boy so probably not.
I see none of them being gay.
Some of you guys honestly sound like fujo fans.
amber is definitely gay. korean culture makes guys act like feminine babies so it's really hard to say if any male idol is gay>>266371
but seriously, namjoon? he seems the straightest out of all the guys in bts honestly. y'all are wild
I see Yoongi as the most likely to at least go both ways just because he seems like that kind of guy who doesn’t give a fuck about the gender of the other person (as edgy as that sounds) plus he’s written some pretty cryptic lyrics.
I personally see Jungkook and Namjoon as the least likely to be into dudes. They both give off fuckboy vibes of different types- Jungkook as the young, never-got-to-grow-up naive socially unaware type and Namjoon as the typical pretentious fake-deep first-class douche kind. But would I still date them? Yep
Speculating about who's gay doesn't make you a fujo fan.
Most studies estimate ~10% of the population is be gay, so for a whole industry to be made up of only straight people is a little odd.
The chances are that there are a lot of idols who are in the closet, because Korea is a homophobic country.
And some idols, like Amber, are clearly gay but closeted so anons were just speculating.
It's hard to tell though with all the fake personas and queer-bating they do
She called two members fuckboys, then followed it up by saying she wanted to date them. What she said about suga sounded like it came straight off of a bts fan blog.
Speculating about idols' sexualities is weird and gross tbh, y'all really do sound like fujos.
Couldn't have said better.
>he was going to be an outcast from the rest of the idol industry anyway
This is something which always surprises me. Idols are oversexualized, specially in male groups, it's like they always have to try to do ''something'' with other members, being touching, almost kissing, passing papers between them using their mouths…But actually being homosexual is frown upon, even if some people defend that in SK mentality is changing, truth is they're still people with closed minds, specially when it's something related to being non-heterosexual.
I'm the anon from >>266271
the point of me asking the question wasn't to start an argument about who's a Fujo and who's not, it was to point out which idols are very obviously most likely apart of the LGBT community but aren't allowed to say anything to how homophobic the kpop industry is (like amber). There's nothing wrong with harmless speculation, get the sticks out of your asses jesus christ >>266349
He was actually openly gay at one point?? The debate between fans on whether he likes girls or not is amusing, he doesn't really hide that he likes dick
>>266394>then followed it up by saying she wanted to date them
learn to read
anyway, I'm surprised no one mentioned Jimin might be at least bisexual. Momo gives me non-straight vibes too, queerbaiting aside.
honestly a lot of twice members give me queer vibes but their main demographic seem to be otaku men and creepy uncles so it makes sense they’d act more ~yuri fanservice-y~ than a lot of other girl groups
you don’t see red velvet or blackpink queerbaiting like hell and they’re just as popular as twice, if not more
Wow they're so #woke for stanning a manufactured kpop girl group. Really sticking it to the system there
I'll never get why SJWs flock to kpop in the first place. The industry is even more regressive than America's. It's not that they can't

also loona fans didnt actually dox elon musk cause if you read the article his workplace and place of residence was already public information, but theyre acting like they did lmao
a lot of them fall for fanservice and think a group of girls pretending to kiss for attention is a group of progressive lesbians, so stanning a group with a lot of fanservice means you're a fan of people who're very pro gay. it's very easy for an idol to get asspats from those types of fans, they'll get treated like Susan B Anthony for saying girls don't have to cook sometimes.
being a fan of more traditionally 'cute' and pretty girlgroups is also a virtue signally thing now. they got mad at edgy 13 year old girls who'd say the only girl groups they liked were 2ne1 and 4minute so they cool thing is to do the opposite now. twice are powerful feminist heros and not liking grown women acting like sexy toddlers makes you very bad

i think he does it to seem woke and deep. he knows fans get off on making him look like a liberal genius
j-hope is close friends with jo kwon and appeared in his "animal" performances before he debuted, so that's interesting
>new one direction
the funny thing is most bts stans are former one direction fans. the timeline is literally:
>one direction goes on hiatus in 2016 with no sign of ever reuniting >the second most popular western male group, 5 seconds of summer, also goes on a long hiatus around the same time>tfw fans have no one to obsess over>in 2016 bts suddenly starts getting mainstream success>western fangirls are exposed to them and are quickly introduced to the world of kpop, abruptly decide to dedicate their lives to being koreaboos>bts gains a massive cancerous fanbase that's been growing ever since
imo bts happened to get lucky due to timing. if there had been a new western group for people to obsess over then the fans wouldn't have turned their attention to bts/kpop in general. their popularity will die down eventually when "stans" get bored and/or someone else catches their eye

Elina is now going into ASMR and twitch.
It’s sad to see her trying to pull faces after answering each question.
it's pretty funny how delusional armys are to think this song has any artistic integrity… they literally reused Hoseok's somewhat decent song and slapped a weak spanish beat and pt. 2 on it. The 'el mariachi' shit didn't even stir up as much controversy as I would have expected bc as soon as the sjw armys heard they were quick to protect it talking about 'now this is how you showcase cultural appreciation uwu! BTS did it way better than Gfriend 1!!1!1'
Anyways, the performance is horrible (as usual). First time I saw it I just wanted to know how tf did BTS degrade over time. At least their past performances and songs were enjoyable. Their newfound fame is definitely going to crash and burn.
Whilst I want to see it… i'm a fake army making money of "real" armys. My dignity is worth the cash.
them trying to pronounce those country names in english triggers
also i saw an army saying the lyrics were so artful and deep and they sounded like a bad fanfic.
First songs were made by real producers, who might not make great music but at least know what's catchy.
Now, after gaining fame, suddenly they themselves are the artists who make super deep songs themselves - of course that's gonna sound like absolute shit.

If bts ever actually breaks into the US market im ending it all
oh man i used to love kpop many moons ago. all of my friends loved it, so naturally i got into it too. i grew out of it once i hit college, but still heard gossip about it from my friends (who had relatives/friends working in the industry in korea). i love the drama that happens in kpop world but absolutely hate kpop itself now lmao. anytime i hear someone gushing over anything kpop-related i cringe so hard.
i think it's possible. i've definitely walked into multiple american stores and have heard kpop playing. idk what group though, i don't know any that weren't created before 2014 kek
and it's been on the radio before here in SoCal
>so unique>suits everyone's taste
if they weren't korean and their songs would be performed by some western popstar/group, all army's would switch the radio channel on these songs
Yep. Drawing the members is the only fun I have in the grand scheme of things lmao
The fandom is a mess and the group is a mess. Most people do realize however that their fame is due to their dedicated fandom if it werent for that they'd still be in Korea. So, once the fandom dies do so does the group.
The American GP isn't interested in shitty idol music to hold BTS a float. (Although I could definitely see it happening for a little while with dumb fun albums like Wings or HYYH).>>267483
BTS and their fandom have taken themselves to seriously. World domination? Every time I'm in a gc and someone mentions it I can't help but cackle.
They're literally a boy idol group meant to put on fake personas to adhere to their audiences' desires. Whilst they're making a shit ton of money, no doubt, they're work isn't meant to be taken in that extremely.
Idols are under strict contracts that forbid them from doing a lot of things until they make revenue. Even so, they still can't do much and that's what some fans need to realize when it comes to KPOP.
The American GP loves drama and KPOP is very secretive when it comes to it. >>267563
All they've got really is songwriting credits and a few producing ones if I can remember. Writing your own music really is nothing in America, no one cares about the songwriters. And if BTS were to go down the route of producing their own material with no help unlike a lot of people in the US, they'd collapse. Let's just say, Jungkook's magic shop on their newest album says a lot
When someone signs up for an idol company, most of them aren't there to make their own music, they're there for the chance of fame, money, and glory.
Or: They could be like V/Jin. Get in a company with no talent whatsoever bc they've got the "look" and can be molded into whatever the company would like.
I actually really liked Spring Day, since it seemed to be a genuinely meant song about suicide and that ferry tragedy. Sort of a "it gets better" thing.
But all the 13 year old kids shilling "omg it's so deep Rap Monster is such a poet guise XDD" ruined it for me. SAD.

It looks like he unfollowed the account already, but a while ago kpop stans were accusing him of being a pedophile over an ig account.

But that account is basically a 3deep5u collection of high exposed gross pictures that mostly try to come off as edgy with some weird pictures sprinkled in. A lot of celebrities followed the account, probably when the pictures were tamer on their feed. Not being a stan, but its not an explicit page for pedos featuring kids. Its just some weirdo photographer who went to far.

they look so much better with lighter makeup
i'm right there with you anon. it became an obsession for me and i would check sites like asianjunkie and omona at least 5 times a day, even though i never actually "stanned" any groups.
which speaking of stanning, i've always found the idea of it exhausting. not that it isnt a thing for non k-pop acts but holy shit kpop fans take it to an extreme. imagine dedicating so much of your life to a group who probably will never know who you are. never understood that shit
too long, didnt watch
can you explain what they were 'scolded' about?
they often get scolded for laughing/fooling around too much
and there's one vlive where two of them were speaking english and the managers told them to stop behind the camera
those managers need to shove a stick up where the sun doesn't shine. nct has members as young as fucking 16. this kind of behavior is gross in general and directing it towards literal kids is especially revolting.
basic human decency aside, how retarded are they to think scolding members for normal shit like this (where fans can notice they're interfering, at that) will do their company any favors? as idols they're essentially selling their personality and using their quirks and silly antics to attract fans so trying to stifle that is idiotic even by kpop standards.
File: 1531613856360.webm (2.43 MB, 1280x720, jw_comments.webm)
The no english thing really makes no sense either since they're trying to push the international angle. The managers even get mad at them for reading dumb comments, do they just like embarrassing them or something? This is such harmless shit
Maybe the managers feel somehow diminished if a younger idol has better english skills than them?
I don't know, Korean come across as hyper competitive and super concious of age.

That's from the i-fans, k-fans usually think she's ugly, chubby and too tanned. She started to gain a bit more popularity since she appeared on I live alone and made a collab with Loco, though. I mean, normal korean people would probably think she's pretty, but k-pop fans are another level of picky.
She looks leagues better with lighter make up, imho. She looks like an avarage simpleton korean girl, but I think it's for the best, the make up ages her so much.

Yup, judging by the things that were said about them I'd also totally guess that anons want a piece of their asses; I mean who isn't into autistic manlets with plastic faces and the personality of a rock.
I get this feeling as well.
Also I think many girls just don't like female groups with large male fanbases. I know Twice makes some pretty shitty music, but you'd think they're pretty much a bunch of sleazy strippers judging by what some people here say about them.
Some anon here even posted that she liked Twice until she watched a fancam and noticed the audience was mostly male.
I disagree, I find that the people who shit on girl groups members' looks are or were obsessed with Korea's appearance culture particularly in regards to their standards for women and usually don't follow boy groups much at all.>>268672
I made the autistic taehyung edit in that pic and I think he's pretty cute as far as twinky idols go, I just don't take my interests that seriously and enjoy shitting on things I like for a laugh. and of course he acts like a fucking autist.
It's strange because I thought Koreans considered her sexy. There are some videos of male idols interacting/being around her that get kinda flustered, or stare at her legs.
I think she's refreshing to look at, she might not be the most beautiful girl in the world but at least she didn't make herself look uncanny valley like her bandmate gangnam unnie Solar
Lots of them!
But it's more common in male groups than in female groups.
I'd actually say most of them have at least one older member, you just can't see since they're styled like toddlers.
I think active girl groups with only adult members are: Mamamoo, Apink, Exid, Blackpink (?)
No idea about boy groups, Super Junior and BTS, I guess
same for me; i’m also from a country where everyone is on first-name basis unless it’s, like, in court or something.
i’ve been aware of the dynamics/hierarchy kpop idols have to adhere to for so long that it’s been normalized to me in the sense that it doesn’t surprise me anymore but it’s like growing used to reading a fantasy novel or something, like you know how it works and what to expect but it’s still surreal and something you absolutely cannot relate to>>268794
ntayrt but my country has the same thing with the lack of a formality/age hierarchy and pretty much everyone being on first-name basis by default, and i’m from sweden.
Oh, interesting. I'm from the US and we typically use honorifics for teachers and doctors but not bosses. Can't imagine schoolkids calling their teachers by their first name lol though it's really not that weird, I'm just not used to it.
And describing the Korean hierarchy system as a fantasy novel is pretty spot on, when I was younger and first learning about Korean culture I was really thrown off just by oppa/unnie/hyung/noona. Like solely addressing somebody with specific word based on their gender and age and closeness to you is pretty alien a concept.

Once there was a time when Jimin became legitimately angry at a 14 yo when he was 18, because the boy was showing him how to clean a plane correctly as he was doing it wrong (this was in America). Why does Korea care so much about age
I actually remember watching that, and being put off by how savagely they attacked that little boy.
He was just 14, yet already working. He had to instruct Jimin and Jungkook, but instead of working they only played around.
Then he told them to do it properly and they immediatly came up with their shitty age superiority.
The worst thing was, he simply asked whether they are brothers, Jimin looked pissed and then hundreds commented what a racist, spoiled whitey he is; when in fact he's much younger and already has a proper work ethic. But no, all westerners are ignorant (how dare that boy not know about Korea's age system!) and poor sm0l BTS are busting their asses open…
Jimin is fucking repulsive. Damn.
I used to feel sorry for him getting called fat and ugly and worthless all the time thinking he was just a nice kid with no backbone. Genuinely didn’t think this of him, naive as that may be.
Honestly he's such a spoiled dickhead but manages to distracte his fans from it by playing up how insecure he is.
He was completely insufferable in burn the stage. All he did was cry about how he didn't feel good enough. And his fan girls ate that shit up. It's ridiculous
Him and Suga seem to have a good friendship and it would surprise me if they really do, since they both seem to be lazy and entitled.
It's hard to tell with J-hope bc he's fairly private.
Jungkook seem like a decent person but also super sheltered and naive.
i feel like it goes to show how someone's culture really effects their personality. like, to us it seems like the most dickhead thing, but to his korean fans (and international fans balls deep in korean culture worship) it seems completely justified. if he had acted like that to a kid in korea, even more so. they actually think people who are younger than them have no right to tell them what to do, even if they are more experienced/knowledgeable than them.>>268988
i still feel sorry for him for that, maybe because i'm sensitive to these insults.
apparently he's made friends with a few other idols his age. i see yugyeom mentioned often as his friend. seems kinda fucked up that he hasn't had friends his age till now though.
apart from that, he also seems to be very conceited and think really highly of himself. probably because everyone had been calling him the "golden youngest" and for so many years and he's been getting so much positive attention for being a trainee from such a young age.
something i do appreciate though, is that in burn the stage, jungkook was dangerously exhausted from the heat in one of the shows and almost fainted a few times throughout it, but continued to perform like nothing was wrong and as i understand people didn't even notice and only knew when the show went up. in contrast with jimin's whiny ass that seemed pretty commendable.
I've never been into kpop and only read this thread for laughs and this was my first glimpse of these guys on a video, and jesus christ, even without that scene, they act like morons. People really find them desirable?!
They're legit ugly, dress like elementary school kids and act like 13 year old fuckboys who have 1 braincell left. What the fuck. They're making Jake Paul look smart.
Yellow fever is one hell of a drug.
It also pisses me off that their fans act like asking them whether they have a gf or whether they're interested in somebody is a big no-no, since BTS "fully concentrates on their art".
I feel like spending too much time with kpop stunts you mentally. They're all over 20, there's nearly nowhere in this world there asking an adult male whether he's in a relationship is considered rude, yet their fans absorb so much from that k-industry purity bullshit, that they forget how normal humans live.

What is that orange outfit with the safety stripes?
At least I know where they got their inspiration for that outfit from lol
Literally though. All their outfits for Anpanman are inspired by working class uniforms, because of the song meaning. I wonder how underpaid their stylist is.
Does anyone think it's weird Sulli and IU are very close friends? I wonder if IU is secretly as slutty and fucked up as Sulli, while putting up that sweet innocent facade. At least Sulli stopped giving a shit about her image and went full child-star-turned-wild
the irony though at them acting like ungrateful little shits in >>268944

I wonder if we'll ever get the K-pop version of this. The various scandals they've had have garnered a lot of interest, however, instead of their companies capitalizing on it and using the publicity to their advantage, they punish the idols. Korean netizens are just as hungry as the average Westerner for drama and scandals, but they'd never admit it. Western fans throw a fit when their teen idol dates another teen idol, but the interest extends the longevity and profitability of everyone involved. Are publicity stunts and PR relationships the next step for K-pop? Or is it not possible within their culture?
Well, but in the rest of the world interviewers don't know and frankly, I don't see how or why they should.
Their fans are the ones who throw a hissy fit because "poor Rapmonster looked uncomfy" - which is simply ridiculous. They are the guests, they don't bother with learning English and then you expect some interviewer who probably interviews hundreds of people that he should know every little detail of another country's culture…?

I admit I haven’t been following these threads very closely so I may be missing something that has already been touched upon on here, but I don’t think Taehyung is a genuinely shitty person, just really, really stupid and socially inept. While most BTS members seem to be scumbags based on evidence in these threads I don’t think he has the capacity to be malicious, just really ignorant. Not that it’s an excuse, I just don’t think he’s rotten like Jimin apparently is.
I also agree with >>269008
about Jungkook just being sheltered/naive. Glad to know he’s getting new friends in that ‘97-liner chat.

Even rap monster looks semi-cute sometimes, that's not saying much. Everything about his face just looks wrong. I think his twinky manlet body is cute and his hair, skin, and complexion usually looks nice, but his lips, nose, philtrum, /ｎaｓｏｌaｂiaｌ ｆｏｌｄｓ/, face shape, face placement(?), etc. are all off.>>269217
Agree that they probably only like him because he's uwu smol, but he's not uglier than jin. Jin is upsetting to look at imo.

BTS are fug, the end.
Actually is so hard to find an attractive male asian celebrity, fuck. Is it because they don't give a fuck if men are handsome or not? Wether it's Korea, Japan or China, there are lots of cute/beautiful idols/actresses, but for male celebrities it's just so hard to find one. Idk, maybe they're just not my taste, or maybe I'm looking in the wrong places.
I also think the korean makeup style doesn't help, all men wearing red lip tint it just looks weird
Pic related is Takeshi Kaneshiro, he looks a lil busted nowadays but he used to be damn fine
sage for grammar
iirc jin was originally supposed to be an actor and they put him in the group for fuck knows what reason
why they decided to put an aspiring k-drama actor in a 3edgy5me wannabe hiphop group i have no idea
his acting is alright from what i’ve seen, though given it’s for k-drama it’s not saying much
i guess beauty really is subjective. i kinda dig jimin's busted face lmao
i guess it's like how some people find benedict cumberbatch attractive, it's unfathomable to me, but some people are into him. maybe jimin is like him lmao
I mean, Jimin isn't conventionally ugly like Blubberbutt. His facial features are just off in an uncanny valley-ish way. His neck is fucking weird too but I feel like an overly nitpicky asshole for bringing that up.
I can still see why people find him attractive.>>269282
Lbr, the only reason why anyone liked blubberbutt was because of sherlock. Any other answer outside of "I have a degradation fetish and the thought of fucking an ugly old man turns me on" is straight up a lie.

it's just different standards of beauty. I agree with you on the lip tint thing, it looks really bad. especially when they put it on celebrities with tiny-ass lips kek.

oh stop bitching anon. BTS is fun to hate on, from their weird looking asshole idols, to their shitty overrated music and lyrics, to their clinically insane fan base. if you want to post about other groups, go ahead, but personally the only idol group im more than surface familiar with is BTS.
The reason we shit on bts is, because they're easy to follow, since they and their fans are literally everywhere.
Most of us just don't want to invest the time to actually 'research' about other lesser known or new groups.
he's there for his 'visuals' lol
kinda weird considering he's ugly as hell
late but they weren't being scolded for speaking english
they were inadvertently promoting apple, which is a no no in south korea
lol the AAOOOW! at the end really makes this>>269429
Jackson's kinda cute and charismatic (helps that he actually can speak a language I know lol) but the rest are forgettable. His solo stuff is horrible lol Fendyman's lyrics were a mess.
How was he able to keep his natural jaw? It looks so manly compared to many other idols. Whatever new kpop group or korean instagram models you look at, they have these ridiculous dorito chins now. Wtf is attractive about that?>>269414
The comments are sensible for once, I'm pleasantly surprised. They laugh at him without making stupid excuses. If you watch any bad MR Removed, there's always lots of comments justifying the bad singing with "he/she is focusing on the dancing", "b-b-but they are improving!", "the haters should try to sing and dance at the same time", etc.
That reminds me that on suga's mixtape he has a song called 'so far away' but then came out to say that he ment for it to be 'so FALL away' but didn't realize he wrote and produced the whole song with the wrong word. Like he couldn't he fucked to check to make sure his English was right?
They should just stick to Korean if they don't speak English.
I feel bad cause I he rejected a scholarship and quit fencing for this. He always looks really happy when he's fencing, he was good at it too… >>269449
I don't know but I hope no one ever touches it.
V-lines are creepy
some of the songs just have a good beat/vibe. It's hard to really
get into hip-hop in a language I don't speak since I can't understand the lyricism/wordplay though.
Also just because American hip-hop is superior doesn't mean people can't also enjoy hip-hop from other countries, that's ridiculous.

They're trying say that due to the suffix of the word that it was more of a term of endearment, like Jimin essentially calling Jungkook a cute dark-skinned person due to his tan.
But alot of Koreans are saying that while the suffix does usually indicate a term of endearment, that the word Jimin used is an exception and always has a negative/racist connotation.
dude I primarily listen to American hip-hop, I literally said it's superior
. learn to read lol. It's just fun to branch out. I listen to other non-Korean foreign hip-hop artists as well.

Remember when we talked about wanting bts to have a controversy?
I just went to twitter and there are 1000s defending him; they could literally do anything.>it was 4 years ago!>it means cute! He wants to be tan!>let's clear the jimin search tags with angel jimin, hardworking jimin…
Maybe get netizenbuzz or somebody to translate this. It's clearly the same word they use for Wiz now.
It's hilarious how obsessed K-pop musicians and fans (and some Korean people in general) are with black people and their music/culture, considering how disrespectful and delusional they are toward them ("Black people don't like Koreans because they are JEALOUS!" Like…I'm pretty sure a lot of these same people do black people's nails and run crappy corner stores selling weave when they immigrate….Not much to be jealous of, chill). Are they that uncreative? Why can't they just stick to copying Japan?
The cherry on top of this whole controversy is Jimin wearing a shirt with black children on it in the same video he used the slur, lmao.
this is bullshit for sure, but it WAS 4 years ago… this milk too old for me /sigh
when's one of them gonna grope a girl at a club or something and give us something fresh
If they're so woke and their company so nice, then they surely could have said something. Afterall it was bad business.
I just wonder why nobody stopped them. There are signs around it, surely also in Korean, so how could anybody not notice that this isn't okay?

They're trying their very best to downplay his dick sucking lips.
I'm late, but: I used to think he was handsome a few years ago, maybe during call me baby era. Then all of a sudden he became busted as fuck, Idk what happened, late puberty maybe? Also his face is so asymmetrical it gives me cancer
It also seems like he's a bit of an asshole

Why do they take it so seriously? Why do they invest so much energy into stuff like this? Even their oppars and unnires don't care this much
she's cute, but she mostly just stands out next to the other girls in twice who look weirder the longer you look at them. is nayeon a visual or just like a 'face' of the group? because her bloated rat face and lopsided hip pads make tzuyu look even better by comparison
imo she's the only one that looks just as pretty with or without the cheerleader effect of having 9 girls there, the rest all look either more weird or more bland when they're by themselves

And B) the original article was written in the tone that they should have the original exemptions and was drawing more attention to that. The bts comment was an add on to pander. Nobody was even suggesting making it happen for real.
Damn…. That's some crimson chin action right there
Who is that? Cause he's giving me strong ass cat lady vibes.
I seriously wonder what goes through their head when they get some jacked up ps. That is, if they do realize it's jacked.

why why why do so many koreans chop half their jawbone off. it looks so unnatural and just horrible. add in the pointy chin fillers they are so fond of and you end up with a straight up alien

i'm convinced pledis sent kyla to the us just so she could lose weight kek. if she never returns or ends up leaving the group, it's probably because she didn't manage to lose weight and live up to the "1.67 cm and 40 kg" kpop ideal.
Yeah I stanned them hard until I saw that shit. They were my only real fandom for a long time.
That was so fucked up. Weird to see it being brought up now though when this is such old news and SuJu is no longer relevant at all.

Yes, I remember that and it angers me so much.
Koreans with their "westerners look so mature" doesn't make treating little girls like this okay (same with Somi). Without filters and shit you can very well see their age difference.
Korea, Japan and China regularly exploit poor underage models, yet we are the gross whities fetishizing innocent Asians…

She's not back and no one really knows where she is. the only information that we got was back in January when her brother was in a big controversy on twitterhttp://kpoptimeout.tumblr.com/post/169222292639/updated-pristin-kylas-brother-luke-massies
apologies for the tumblr link but i couldn't find a place that would sum this mess up better
There's tons of those types of blogs on tumblr. I can't imagine why anyone would want to donate to her. >>272969
I feel like those types of people exist but I can't think of where they would be. Most of the time fans show how obsessive they are is when dating comes up. The only person I can think of is the owner of that kpop and black women blog. But she doesn't focus on one idol.
To me Blackpink are just so unlikeable. I get bitchy vibes from all of them, they're untalented, they don't have a personality, just a failed copy of 2NE1 who unlike them were actually likeable and had a personality.
Even the name of their group is cringey.

Her predebut plastic surgery pics
She did her whole face and she still looks unattractive. She should keep her hair colored she won't stand out at all with black
she looks really uncanny to me and i can't place why. is her skin too botoxed tight or something? i don't find her ugly at all but she looks a little weird to me and not really in a weird pretty way
also, have you ever watched momoland's faces when they dance, especially the popular one that isn't jooe or nancy? they try really hard to pull sexy faces doing meme dances and it's awkward. also, nancy looks like how yukapon looks these days.

jooe’s uggo-ness and le quirky behavior is one of the reason momoland is semi relevant
making her look pretty or at least average is a bad business move

Tbh I don't think Koreans care much about ears, ear pinning is pretty unpopular in east asia prob because they see eyes as more "problematic
". One of the rappers from exo has very pronounced ears and he still has them. Though Korea is very look conscious so maybe earpinning will be a thing later on
I'm very confused by her face. Botched ps??
She’s looks like a knock-off Irene with her hair down. Probably the editing here, though.
Momoland’s stylists seem insistent on making the members look ugly (the bleached high-ponytails on JooE, emphasizing Nancy’s ears, the group leader getting the most unflattering short haircuts, etc.). Crayon Pop was pretty similar, with the memetic music and making the girls look dowdy.

I somewhat like nct but my eyes bleed when I see Taeyong. How does he live like that? Doesn't it affect your health when you reduce your jawline and widen your eyes that much?
i hate hearing people talking about vocal technique in kpop. no matter what they say it's always just wank to make their faves look good. they use vague terms like 'stable' whenever they feel like it, pick and choose when someone is straining and just insist any bad performance is because it's not in their range. the worst is the fake concern to cover up that they just don't like someone. "she has bad technique and is ruining her voice!! nodules!!" doesn't mean shit when you don't know what bad technique actually is. any singing can cause nodules if you sing too much. whitney houston, freddie mercury and adele all damaged their voices from singing too much. if only they were as stable as taehyung oppa >>275217
i thought taeyong was more or less natural and just weird looking? he looks way closer to his old photos than most of nct. and i thought that was the joke about him being jaejoong 2.0 when taeyong is natural and jaejoong's had his jaw, eyes and nose done multiple times
he only got his nose done imo. you plastic surgery fags are too much.

This is an interesting read that really put BTS’ vocal line into perspective for me: https://kpopvocalanalysis.net/2016/08/04/bts-vocal-analysis-v/amp/
They’ve made analyses of Jungkook and Jimin too. Nice and critical but objective. I’m sure a few ratmys cried over those articles.
taehyung also sucked in hwarang, he can't act, sing, or really dance (and in wings era it was especially noticeable). granted, hwarang was already pretty bad, but still
can idols like joy stop getting cast in main leads when they suck at acting just because they're in a popular? all the "visual" actresses like iu, suzy, and yoona aren't that great either

I don't get why Koreans think idols being from a rich family is something positive - imo that just confirms that they didn't get to debut because of talent or at least good looks.

Are you a bot or what?
Maybe. Taehyung probably also knows other artists as well as photographers. I remember his fans getting pissed at him for posting his favorite photographer's work (Ryan McGinley) which was nude, and he promptly deleted it lmao
Tell them bitches to bend over, they sure as hell will, especially Jungkook who doesn't want to get his tattoos, stretched ears, piercings, and baggy ass pants anymore all bc his "fans" said so.
But, the only member who doesn't give a shit about what the fans think is Taehyung. I believe he said something on Vlive close to that, which makes me wonder if he's still putting on a persona like the other members.
most of the comments were bashing them…
and idol music has nothing to do with talent and koreans know that. its literally meant for teens and uncle/auntie fans to become obsessed with
Ryan McGinley isn't some underground artiste. He's basically a celebrity photographer at this point.
>the only member who doesn't give a shit about what the fans think is Taehyung
Taehyung does the most fanservice, hello?
Ik he isn't some underground artiste. I was just highlighting the fact his fans started bitching.
And you clearly forgot Jimin existed lmao
When it comes to fan service the whole group does it. I wasn't saying Taehyung doesn't do it. He just doesn't suck his fan's dick when it comes to his physical appearance and the shit he likes.
from some ET article:
What do each of you love about yourselves?
Jin: I love my face and how it looks, which I appreciate very much.
Jimin: I love my attitude towards work and tendency for perfection.
V: My newly discovered talent to shoot great photos.

everyone in bts is ugly to me. you think jungkook would flop when jhope's garbage album mixtape thing (idk or really care) did so well?
I don't hate Taehyung and Jungkook, but I think their fans overhype them and I don't understand why their company markets them the way they do.>>275999
He's not a bad performer, but I don't think his solo work will get attention outside the BTS fandom unless he comes up with original and interesting songs. I guess the next mixtape will be Jungkook's, so we'll see.

She looks horrible
it's probably because she went to US.
i can't wait for her new single hello pizzas.
2ne1 reunion tracklist:
1. Fire (up the oven for some pizzas)
2. It Hurts (Ate too much version) 3. I Am the Best (At competitive eating)
You wish that were the case. YG is a shit company and the worst thing about him is that he's a fucking misogynist. He could care less about Blackpink (which he does) and doesn't realize that they could actually hit it big all because they're females.
Ikon is a shit group with shit music. At least Blackpink's music has potential and is listenable, even if they dont produce their own shit.
I don't really care for either groups, but I do have a burning hatred for YG. The only reason they're whining is bc Blackpink was formed by a fucking idiot misogynist who doesn't realize the shit ton of money they could make.
When it comes to Kpop no one bats an eye at girl groups and if they do it doesn't last very long. And, that's where Blackpink could have been different.
Maybe if this was years ago. A lot of Kpop fans are only familiar with the third wave acts nowadays.
I get your point, though, but I don’t think it invalidates what the other anon is saying. Girl groups tend to have more general public appeal (like hitting digital sales or Korean streaming points) if you compare midtier or rookie girl groups to other midtier/rookie boy groups. But even mid-tier boy groups can get rabid fanbases that will support them for fucking years, if not decades. Most girl groups are lucky to age out by the time they’re past their mid-twenties, which is only if they’ve got a primarily female fanbase. It’s like girl groups have more listeners but less wholly dedicated fans than boy groups do (unless we’re talking about extreme cases like SNSD, Twice, EXO, BTS).
Boy groups do tend to dominate most western Kpop discussion (not surprisingly, considering most Kpop fans seem to be straight women), so it’s not surprising people get the impression girl groups are left to the wayside.>>276632>BP getting concerts
The setlist must be 60% covers or some shit.
Has anyone heard the most recent Red Velvet song? The teaser sounds awful. >>276494
Didn’t blackpink just finish promoting their most recent comeback? I can’t see why they’d be complaining already. And YG needs to stop depending on Teddy so much.
*arrests or lawsuits
Both are not worth the risk for many Koreans.
I'm not talking about her getting kicked out/whatever happened though. I meant how she was treated like shit by people working at SM, I'll try to find the clip of it.
On second thought, yeah I agree and take back what I said. SM is less misogynistic and more just shitty to everyone, though especially foreign idols and girls
Yeah I figured most groups would stay at the dorms when convenient but they don't try to tell everyone that they live together, like BTS does. BTS and their fans push the bff angle nonstop, and act like they can't bare to not spend every waking moment together. So J-hope's apartment seem strange for the narrative they push.
But yeah your probably right, he's probably just locking down a place for when BTS's fame finally ends.
>Bighit's going to stop pay dispatch off eventually
It's super obvious dispatch has dirt on BTS, with all the exclusive content they get. What kind of scandal do you think it could be?
The only thing huge enough to even put i-fans off would be either rape or drunk driving (plus points if it's one of their innocent maknae line
kek) - everything else is something they just need to get 'educated' on.
bullying would be a big one too. it would shatter the image that >>276851
mentioned, which is a huuuuge part of the appeal for i-fans.
I used to be super into kpop groups and LIVED for the rumors about group members hating eachother.
I can remember there were plenty of "receipts" for that shit, and most of the groups survived and it wasnt a big deal so you're correct.
im a bad person for desperately wanting shit like this to be real, its not like i actually have anything against the members or want them to be miserable, but the milk that would flow forth from the fandom if anything came out would feed me for years honestly.
I noticed that a lot, but this year it seems like they started to make up things. Also it's not a secret to the fans, everybody knows they are completely opposites and their relationship was shit, they always talked about it very openly (that's why the bvy thing) Idk about his beef with Jin, I don't feel like they dislike each other like Suga.
I also noticed something about Jin in the early years that put me off a lot. It seemed like it was "BTS" and then there was him. It didn't seemed like he was part of the group: when they were doing something and laughing he was just watching from behind with an awkward smile or completely silent. I really thought he would leave soon. But look at him now, he pretty much gets along well with everybody or at least tries to because he realized that he was doing something wrong. Probably one of the reasons why the Jin/V problem is more subtle.
Bighit always had that police of encouraging a good relationship in BTS as part of their strategy marketing but I can't wait until some fucked up drama shows up.
The whole Yoongi and Tae holding hands when they're upset situation had me laughing my ass off bc armys ate that shit up and now think they're in love~
Like…it's so fucking obvious they've got beef with each other and the age hierarchy and the fact that they're complete opposites clearly doesn't make anything any better, except for Bighit constantly doing a shit ton of damage control.
God, I can't wait for the day something slips and armys break their necks.
I remember their first ever girl group Glam had this super huge scandal where one or two of the members got locked up. BigHit most likely learned from their mistake by deciding to not have any girl trainees lmaooo but even so eventually a BTS scandal will occur with their rising popularity and BigHit won't do shit bc by that time BTS will end up like 1D and a new group will show up
Bighit just doesn't know how to choose trainees. Like 2 of the Glamm members got arrested for blackmail. Quite a few of the original BTS line up got arrested for drug charges a couple years ago, and one was accused of violently assulting his girlfriend and then wrote a song about rape fantasies.>>277025
Do you have any reason for the drug scandal? I could see it being one as well but I think for no other reason than me wanting the drama

After 2 years of hype Loona's debut song and video is boring af. It seems like the company either got lazy or ran out of money, the video is so bland and the school girl outfits don't match the song and the background. Blockberry probably thought that people would take their laziness as art or something. I don't get why they are pushing Heejin to be the main face, vocals and dancer her voice isn't special and she looks like plastic surgery addict ajumma, crazy to think that she's 17 and she's already had everything done, she looks really off like a robot sex doll. Poor Vivi she barely got any lines and screen time, I love her pink hair. The only thing the company did right was keeping their hair colors tbh I don't think anyone can really distinguish them apart from each other since there are so many memembers.
I just finished watching their debut music video and I agree there’s a noticeable drop in quality compared to their pre-debut releases. The song’s awful too. I guess their company’s starting to run out of money.
I also think LOONA’s international fanbase (which they’re riding off of) is just loud rather than big. Their pre-debut releases have never gone past five million views on YouTube and this one hasn’t even hit a million yet. Other non-music-related videos on their channel usually don’t break 100k views despite being short and having English subtitles kek Their company really gambled hard by spending so much money and pandering to international fans … and it might not even pay off.
>>277027>2 of the Glamm members got arrested for blackmail. Quite a few of the original BTS line up got arrested for drug charges a couple years ago, and one was accused of violently assulting his girlfriend and then wrote a song about rape fantasies.
Could you please list them? Especially curious about the blackmail + the dude violently assaulting his girlfriend? Names? Articles? Consequences beyond not debuting/flopping?

Here's an article for the Glam member arrest, this happen while they were active and lead to them disbandinghttps://www.allkpop.com/article/2015/01/glams-dahee-and-model-lee-ji-yeon-sentenced-to-one-year-in-prison-for-attempting-to-blackmail-lee-byung-hun
One of their first members was also a sasaeng fan of Super Junior's Leeteuk but was kicked out once it came outhttp://kpopkfans.blogspot.com/2014/12/girl-group-member-who-was-sasaeng-of.html?m=1
The former BTS trainee that got arrested for drug use was Iron, Kidoh and i11evn. It happened in early 2016 so it was after they were done being bighit trainees but might've still been associated with RM since they were all part of a rap crew pre-debut, that RM was still shouting out in the 'dark and wild' era, called DNH. I can't find much about it though other than fansites. https://www.google.com/amp/s/aminoapps.com/c/k-pop/amp/blog/who-is-dnh/zdIx_u80n3wm3VWPmEjRDBV8DVlp3Bhttp://daenamhyup.tumblr.com/profile

I wouldn't be shocked if Halsey was hooking up with Namjoon, the only fluent English speaker in the group. Not only that, but pseudo-intellectuals are practically made for each other.
She does get hyped hard, but Heejin IS the main face, considering she did the best on Mix9 and just landed an LG commercial.
The shared screen and vocal time is fucked, though. Haseul, Yeojin, Vivi, and Hyunjin got so little focus—that’s 1/3rd of the group being left to the wayside.
Supposedly this isn’t the title track, which explains the bare MV, but the uniforms make it look all the more cheaper. They’re so ill fitting on the girls that aren’t stick-thin and a lot of the choreo just looks uncomfortable with the schoolgirl uniforms.

At least Daesung's got a nice bod to counter his face. J-hope is straight-up a twig and

nah i still think j-hope is uglier than all of them. at least the super junior guys look relatively surgery-free, just a bit unfortunate. the tubbo isn't unattractive facially. j-hope just looks botched, like his whole face was reconstructed. whoever said he and nayeon must have the same surgeon was spot on. he is probably the only member of bts who is exceptionally talented at something though>>277560

Holy shit. I'm terrible at identify plastic surgery but seeing an old pic of him makes his shitty nose job super obvious. He's going to look like Michael Jackson in a few years. How do ARMYs still believe they're ps free?
>To me it's his personality that makes the whole bts unbearable
I wouldn't say he's embarrassing on the level V is but he is disgustingly smug about everything. While half of BTS is spoiled, entitled brats and the other half is socially inept, borderline autist, J-hope comes off as a true, genuine asshole.
I remember once, He quit doing vlives for the longest time just because fans asked about the other members while he was on.
>>277770> I remember once, He quit doing vlives for the longest time just because fans asked about the other members while he was on.
Huh, I remember this. I hadn’t watched their V-lives in forever but stan Twitter was blowing up with all the enraged ARMYs who wrote rants upon rants about how it was hurting his self-confidence, how he was soooo overlooked and taken for granted despite working soooo hard, how ungrateful the fans who dared ask about other members were, etc. When they announced he would finally be doing another one by himself, it all blew up again about how no one should dare so much as mention another member in the comments.
He’s a grown ass man from a group with literally millions of fans worldwide. What’s with ARMYs acting like their oppars can’t even wipe their own asses without help? It’s ridiculous and borderline offending.

He's on his way to get a serious MJ nose.
Depends on what you mean. It looks like they're not actually kicking members out, just moving them to other subunits. That'll be it's own problem in the longrun (i.e. in dream, the group that relies on this rotation system the most since they're supposed to graduate after they hit 18, when Jaemin, Jeno, and Jisung rotate out they'll have nowhere to go but nct u or nct deadweight, population: kun and basically yuta, winwin, taeil, and johnny at this point) but it should work better.
Sad that Kun's ONLY role in the group is literal babysitter up until nct china debuts. He looked so tired in that cooking V live w/ the dreamies where Chenle kept fucking everything up and they made another fat joke about him kek poor bitch
>>278012>Socially inept line
Ah, yes, the socially inept line, my favorite line, featuring: V, the autist who doesn't know how to act; Jungkook, the mentally stunted 22yo, who doesn't know how to make friends; RM, the social awkward try hard; and the ugliest one of all, Jin, the obnoxious fuckhead, who doesn't realize that he's not funny.
Kek, real talk tho, for an idol group, BTS really is filled with alot of awkward weird guys.
Why anybody would stan them, the world may never know>>278013
It wouldn't surprise me if he really was shy with girls (and everyone else) I heard he didn't start making friends outside of BTS until recently. If that's true then he's probably only been with paid escorts.
It’s the sub-groups (NCT 127, U and Dream thus far) that are rotational, not the group itself. It’s confusing and seems kind of pointless since they change concepts for all the sub-units all the time anyway so it would make more sense to just create new ones for different concepts but it is what it is. (Dream makes sense though since they’re supposed to be the youthful and childlike group it would be pretty weird if all members stayed forever and we’d eventually have a 25yo in a sailor suit performing songs like Chewing Gum lol)
I originally thought 127 wasn’t rotational but members like Doyoung and Johnny that were introduced after it was formed were added to the line-up, so.
127 is not rotational, but they add new members.
Speaking of, there was a rumor floating around a few weeks ago about Jungwoo joining 127… Lil fucked up if true. rip in piss in advance, 6/9 of the members.
Idol variety back in 2009~2012 was so good because you had so many shows that would feature people from different groups all in one place. You’d get shinee members, ft island members, snsd, tara, ft island all doing the same shows together. You’ll never see blackpink, bts, seventeen, girlfriend, etc all together in one show. And I feel like there was more variety of boygroups and girlgroups without a majority of them being unknown groups with tiny followings. There were more stage ‘costumes’ so to speak and less normalfag clothes on stage (if they were normal clothes, they would be recognizable outfits that would repeat like 2ne1s or shinees clothes, and things like the gee skinny jeans, etc)
Also Stan Twitter wasnt really a thing yet, just random forums and then tumblr later on. SM concerts in LA were the only kpop action we got, and snsd performing on David letterman was mind blowing.
Maybe im just super nostalgic but maaaan those were some fun times

Aren’t Taeyong, Mark and the vocal line (Taeil/Doyoung/Jaehyun) the only 127 members who have lines anyway?
Johnny and Winwin literally never having any lines ever has become a meme. Winwin’s been in sooo many comebacks yet he’s never had a single line. Him having lines in NCT China should be a given but based on evidence you really can’t be sure. Poor kid.
File: 1533810717652.jpg (95.43 KB, 960x1200, DWAMWeMV4AEweZd.jpg)
yeah, and jw is on par with everyone in the vocal line sans doyoung, outcutes everyone in 127,
and he goes ham on the gay fanservice too, occasionally to the point where it makes the others visibly uncomfortable. him joining will throw any remaining hope for the members who rarely get lines to get more out the window.
>Winwin’s been in sooo many comebacks yet he’s never had a single line
alexa play despacito. what does he even do? is he a rapper?
Oh whoa, these people are… not entirely ok are they
Scary how many of them there are
Winwin has trained traditional Chinese dance and ballet IIRC so people had hopes he would be the next Victoria. The fact that he doesn’t even get center time despite clearly having potential pisses me off; that pathetic, literal fraction-of-a-second he got as center towards the end of Boss was like a mockery towards his fans.
I don’t understand why SM even bothers debuting Chinese members when they get 0 chance to shine and are treated like shit by the choreographers. I prefer watching their relay dances over the MVs/live performances specifically for that reason. (Renjun and Chenle seem to be treated slightly better in that regard but Renjun is ethnically [North] Korean and Chenle has billionare parents.)

Kind of like pic related but reverse
if i'm correct elfs had sm stocks hostage so if sm didn't want to lose major money, they had to bend to their wishes
no clue if nctzens have that power…i doubt it
i'd love if sm gave up on the unlimited members concept and just focused on the members he has now but i know that's not happening lol
anticipate nct having 25 members next year
I'm genuinely curious, when did you get into kpop? Because this is literally what was happening with 2NE1 back then, which is funny conisdering bp is literally 2NE1 just in pretty LOL. 2NE1 kinda sold this sound better though imo
Idk what it is about yg groups in general that makes people think they're more special/talented than any other kpop group, considering their sound/style hasn't evolved since 2012.
Maybe it's just dumb international fans importing the sentiment from the koreans?
god someone please find that video of yoongi pulling a chair from a staff workers hand >>278053
Yeah, they had the thread to "prevent hate from spreading to the rest of the community"
I think the reason why kpop fans act so mushy is because they spend all their time on kpop and eventually, they absorb k-netz toxic mentality, either pampering or demonizing idols (the latter happening for the most insane ridiculous reason).
File: 1533935730326.png (1.05 MB, 1620x1204, jae3.png)
it's fun to make fun of annoying and obsessed stans on twitter but the sasaeng culture is just disgusting. i don't follow that many kpop accounts on twitter and i still manage to see stuff retweeted about stalkers all the time, this is just the one i saw today. other days it's accounts of people being way too intense at airports, and every week or so there's a new account selling idols phone numbers and schedules. yesterday i saw an account for a bts ship giving out secret pics of their totally real relationship, ie stalker pictures of two members standing close to each other
i still don't understand how these women don't get in more legal trouble for the kind of stuff they do, so many of them are grown adults, not just weird teenagers. of all the genuinely disturbing parts of kpop this is probably one of the scariest to me. the idea of having real stalkers is so disturbing, especially when there are idols talking about this shit happening for 10+ years with nothing being done to stop it until the stalkers eventually get bored and move on. i'm surprised there haven't been more breakdowns from idols handling this kind of thing, they manage to hold the 'i love all of our precious fans' image pretty well since a lot of the time when they do speak out the reaction is along the lines of 'tsk, ungrateful, it's because of those fans that you have money'

im kinda surprised hes joking about his stalker, guess youve gotta find the humour in situations like that…? if she really bought a similar apartment to him, she must be quite a rich stalker lol.
the amount of obsessive/stalkerish fans in kpop fandom is staggering, but its easy to see why… the industry encourages them to form very powerful parasocial relationships with their idols to milk the absolute most amount of money out of them possible, from their strict personas, to their variety show appearances, to their extensively produced specials, photos and videos about their lives. i believe part of the reason why kpop fans are so rabid and defensive in the face of criticism towards their idols is because they honestly believe, whether subconsciously or not, that they really "know" the idol, they feel like they are friends/boyfriend/girlfriend with the idol and that the relationship is "real". just look at the amount of fans who want to bring gifts to fansigns - spending even more money on things for people who are already filthy rich!
fans need to step back and realise that they are being sold a commodity and that they don't actually know who the idols are and that they are not in a relationship with them. but good luck getting lonely, immature adolescents to realise that…

it used to be a guilty pleasure of mine to look at the presents that fansites bought for BTS, there were insane amounts of luxurious stuff worth thousands of dollars. v got showered in gucci shit for example. i guess bh finally ran out of storage and stopped accepting gifts lol, so fans have to buy billboards and do charitable donations now.
fan gifts seriously piss me off. call me a jealous poorfag or whatever, but like previous anon mentioned buying luxury items for celebrities that probably have a decent amount of money is ridiculous. and if they don't have a ridiculous amount of money? tough shit, not everyone needs overpriced garbage. the amount of unnecessary consumerism kpop causes just amazes me
plus, to me it just feeds into the idea of fans owning idols. i've actually seen kfans (obviously not all) justify getting upset over something their fave did because they bought them a luxury item.

Can hyperthyroidism and orbital decompression surgery have an affect on someone's appearance? I thought that's why Solji was looking swollen. >>278717>tfw Hani used to talk about being a natural beauty on radio shows
I don't remember if that was before or after her chin implant. That shit was razor sharp in DDD.

Did hyerin get something done too? She actually looks good in this video. Her face was always so puffy looking and now it isn't…
Don't they ever take legal action towards these stalkers? They are so creepy.
From what I've seen, whenever BTS takes a flight something happens in the airport most of the time. Their company should increase their security (and all companies should provide the best security they can to their workers in general). Their fans made a project to keep them safe in the airport when they arrived at the US for BBMAs this year. It's really cool, but if the necessary security was already provided a project like that wouldn't even need to happen.
They got mobbed in Taipei last month, the situation got so chaotic, V had to post about it in their fancafe: "I just don’t like to see our fans to fall down and get hurt. We’re hurting each other. I hope that both the members and ARMYs won’t get hurt. If you’re stuck together too much, everyone will get hurt. Please." He also pretended to take a picture of a stalker who was shoving her phone in his face. https://twitter.com/taebokkiii/status/1015510703417901056
Recently a stalker hit Suga in the airport and said "It's your fault who walk in an extra way with your hands buzzing!! Then when i hit you, you came to touch your arms and act like it's so much hurt…. so disgusting! Remembering about it makes me so piss off", "I apology for a moment in heart. I didn't hit him strongly but in the video, he just like oh it's so hurt.. It's hurt… on purpose…(he is) so bad personality". She said "Maknae line is more popular, they have more security following them around, Yoongi has less security so it's easier to chase him" too. It's so messed up. https://twitter.com/Heraldsz/status/1023695070011301890
Some fansites creep me out too. How do they even keep up with everything the idol they are a fan of does in the first place? How are they able to afford all these flights, tickets, hotels, gifts? I know they sell merch but I don't think their income from the merch would be enough to afford all of this. The ones who know about their idol's private schedules and follow them to take pictures in these schedules are scary. Isn't it illegal?
Of course, I know artists want to meet their fans but the fansigns are mostly done to sell more albums. People who get into fansigns are picked through a lottery. A person who bought the album only once has a chance as well, but if you buy more albums you have a bigger chance to get in. People buy hundreds of albums to talk with their idols for 3-5 minutes, some people buy thousands of albums and still don't get picked.
People are willing to give out so much money for their favorite idols, so I guess it makes them think that they own the idol? I know the industry encourages it but it doesn't make this obsessive behavior okay.

It's not just the stalkers, it's also people who are not fans that come to the airport to take pictures and sell them later. They have their own name, something like paparazzi but I forgot.
>How are they able to afford all these flights, tickets, hotels, gifts?
Maybe they have rich parents? I wonder how that works, if my parents learned that I spent all my time and money on some celebrities they'd quickly disown me lol.
This annoys me so much
They clearly have more time an money than most people would even dream about. They could literally do anything they want, yet they waste it all on stalking someone.
I bet if Korea wasn't so ignorant about mental health they would see this is a problem and these girls need help
Seriously. Kpop stans are so out of touch with… everything about social interaction it's scary. I saw a comment under a pic from CL's insta saying something light hearted about how she should change labels because YG isn't promoting her like they should, and said comment was flooded with angry stans yelling "SHE CAN DO WHAT SHE WANTS DON'T TELL HER WHAT TO DO REEEEEE"
I can't imagine any of them having irl interactions
Are you thinking of fancammers/fansites? A lot of them do it for free, actually. I don’t think I’ve come across any paid access fansites yet, but I’ve heard of them.
There was an agency recently (Woolim, who manages Lovelyz and Infinite) who got exposed for selling information like the idols’ schedules to fansites. It’s likely the same for all other companies, considering how detailed a lot of fan-run schedule notices there are, but it was mostly funny because an Infinite fan uploaded their own transaction with the company and bitched about how shit Woolim is to her favorite idol.
