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

· Don't derail about dumb shit. If it doesn't directly have to do with Kpop, don't post about it here.
· Don't racebait
· Don't fangirl
· Keep in mind that this is not the Korea critical thread. It's not about Korean society as a whole.

Reminds me of this part from one of Hyuna's MV. How is that sexy at all?

Probably an unpopular opionion or I may get hate for it. But I really don't find female kpop idols sexy at all, they just look so… off most of the time. They are beautiful and cute most of the time, but sexy? nah, sorry.

I don't think male ones are better mind you, especially when they take their shirts off and grind away ugh… the cringe is real.

No. 280746

ever notice how when kpop fans post about how great a female idol is, 90% of the time their main selling point is just "she's not afraid to be sexy! she wears really short shorts even though korea is conservative!" especially when they're specifically talking about how someone's a feminist icon. especially when most of the sexy kpop dances or songs are like "oops, i bent over and oppa saw my underwear!!" it just seems a bit… off

bighit really pushed the sexualisation of jungkook/jimin/v when bts started out. i've seen a lot of people use bts as an example of a boygroup lifting their shirts and not being censored when girl groups are, but nearly half of bts was underage when they were doing that, if anything it shows how teenage boys aren't protected in the industry either. jungkook wasn't even 16 yet when he was doing it onstage

I seriously don't understand why i-fans want the same things from kpop that they get from the western entertainment industry. They want bts to sing about social issues like homophobia/sexism/whatever, they want k-fans to accept idols dating with each other, etc. I know that k-fans' attitude towards idols' relationships is fucked up, but it's still a thing in their fan culture, it might change for the better, it might not, I just don't think that people who observe a foreign culture should throw tantrums and demand that things are dealt their way, idols act the way they like, etc. Calling people out, critisizing is fine, but many fans don't seem to understand that kpop caters to korean audience, not them.

No. 280777

>>280776
i think a lot of ifans transitioned into being kpop fans from being fans of anime or just of other fandom cultures with a lot of fanfic and stuff. there's a lot of projection, it doesn't matter what an idol actually acts like because stan twitter decides they're actually a very edgy, sarcastic, open minded person based on what they want. there's so many posts like "sghds this is so taehyung" that if they stan for the 'person' it isn't really about what that idol actually acts like

yeah, but i'm not even talking about liking the fake persona idols put on. i mean fans just randomly assigning vines or memes to idols based on basically nothing and stanning based on that. i saw a post once about 'exo as your mexican boyfriend' and it was just assigning traits to members based on that scenario and the replies were like "this is why i love ____" despite that having nothing to do with the member

the most obvious one is taehyung's baby boy persona, even anons on here fall for it. anons call him "autistic" while twitter calls him "soft baby boy". the idea that this man who is friends with models and actors and snsd members doesn't drink alcohol and is bashful on red carpets??? LOL nice meme

kpop fandoms are filled with people like this. I'm sorry for being that one whiny bitch but as someone who grew up in a mostly conservative shithole of a country, these first world lgbt people who constantly feel the need to be told that they are valid are fucking annoying. lgbt people here are extremely socially pressured, I know people who got disowned by their parents and had to move to another country, I know people who got death threats, people are getting killed, and the government and courts don't give a fuck. you are protected by the law, you have your freedom, what else do you fucking want? just live on like a normal human being. do virgin gays and fujos really need some kpop idol forcing themself to act gay all the time to feel valid and represented? they don't even know shit about people who died fighting for lgbt rights, but when a kpop guy isn't afraid to wear makeup and chokers suddenly he's a lgbt icon.

Samefag but I wanted to point out how ironic it is that i-fans want idols to be "woke" and care about tolerance and social justice when most of them don't really bother learning about and accepting a foreign culture themselves.

>>280788
That's an actual thing with fujoshis lol, a certain percent of them is homophobic (I happen to know a few people unfortunately) and many of them don't really care about these issues. They're nothing better than straight males who "care" about lgbt rights just because they jerk off to lesbian porn.

Also, idols acting gay often seems even more homophobic than if they didn't acknowledge the existence of homosexuality at all. If you watch korean variety shows for example, they often do some (kinda) gay stuff for comedic effect, it's always cringey and obvious that actual homosexuality is just a joke or disgusting to them.

i remember seeing some stuff about a prank the company did where some girl was pressing up on them in a crowded elevator, to see how they reacted. apparently JK was underage at the time. imagine how people would react if the sexes were reversed… initially i figured the band must have known about the prank beforehand, but with how the industry treats its idols in general im not sure anymore.

>…these first world lgbt people who constantly feel the need to be told that they are valid are fucking annoying.

God yess, I agree so much. And they push their agenda onto every idol that seems remotely "gay" to them and name them queens, etc. It's so annoying. There's so many websites of people dedicated to figuring out idols sexual inclination, like they're some sort of gaydar.

Like this one for NCT members:

No. 280795

>>280789
Uh anon don't you know that literally nothing an idol has ever done is their genuine self? Every single blink is calculated by the agency. Every single idol is just an empty shell being told what to do.

Really, there's definitely idols who are naturally, genuinely awkward people. They'll be coached on how to play it off in a way that seems charming rather than awkward but without a doubt there's plenty like V who aren't just 100% normal outgoing people faking at being quirky. The times an idol is given a completely fake persona always backfire and stop working within a couple of years, fans can see through when someone is a complete fake and don't like it

No. 280802

>>280795
I think that's a bit exagerated, I doubt every single thing an idol does is fake. But I do agree that it's most likely that the general personality they portray in variety shows and such is super fake. Especially when you have the cool one, the shy one, the "cute" (cringe) one, in every group ever.

I doubt V decided his persona was acting like a retard. I really do believe he thinks sticking his tongue out like that for example is "sexy".

If you mean this vid, the actress was actually crying and they wanted to test how they'd they react. Weird but nothing sexual.

No. 280809

That first part was a joke about how some anons (and people elsewhere) jump in immediately to tell you an idol's fake if you say you like something about them

With stuff like Vlive these days I think it's too hard for an idol to keep a consistent fake persona. There's still a few 'quirky' idols who are told to just stay quiet but I do think that most idol's fake personas are just their own personalities but exaggerated in certain ways to be more loud or more motherly or whatever their deal is

Even though I got over k-pop a long time ago, I still visit netizenbuzz from time to time just see i-fans desperately defend their faves while they simultaneously shit on the Korean society.

International fans refuse to educate themselves on why things such as celebrities caught up in scandals concerning weed, abortion or, baffeling enough, the Japanese Imperial flag are controversial. However, at the same time, international fans throw a shitshow and go to #war on twitter when Koreans don't understand why blackface or being against accepting refugees is an issue.

Stupid koreans and their v-line jaw obsession. They've ruined so many faces already, like Wendy in picture. They find him attractive because he has the softest most unnexisting chin/jaw ever.

That would be a good thread if enough people participated, there's a lot of reactors and kpop fans that fit the lolcow potential. I've seen the evolution of the normal "I need money" reactors from watching stupid videos to watching kpop mvs, getting sucked into it and only doing that. Besides the point of "do they like it or are they reacting because they get views" you can see with your eyes how they go from normal people to total kpop freaks.

I remember one called Dezzy that used to be some normal black dude reacting and devolved to such a kpop suck up. In his latest videos he keeps saying "pregnant" every time an idol even looks at the camera and worships them as gods. It's so cringe now.

Or this one from Spain that used to be a normal dude in his first videos until he discovered the cancer that is BTS and became such an idol wannabe. Just look at that red clown hair and dangly earring. Looking at his videos thumbnails you can see the evolution from normal to fugly kpop fashion.

When I heard her rap for the first time I didn't even realize that she was trying to rap, I thought she was just talking or something. Why does she even need rap parts? I get that they need them in big groups where many members can't sing, but she's a solo artist and can avoid that.. Western artists don't have this golden standard of having rap in every single song, where does this come from?

Groups with long ass theories that were made wayyyyy before the group even debuted is lit a marketing tactic to draw in people who love stories. RE: EXO and LOONA (i sort of like Loona's "backstory).

This is the reason I dislike kpopfags so much actually. Instead of being honest about stanning idols solely because they want to fuck them or be like them, they keep insisting their idols have talent when they only thing they do right is pleasing their fanbase. Even so they manage to come off as fake most times.
Take kpop, for example, there's no originality in any aspect of it except it's made by Koreans. Same goes for kdrama. Fans literally force themselves to hype this shit because they're so obsessed with Korea, the trending country right now. That thread with anons fawning over kpop boys really tells how shallow this fanbase really is. As an ex kpop fan I hope it dies out soon.

Also, I don't get why so many "ex" kpop fans are still updated on things happening in kpop and talking about it. Why do you even bother if you don't even want to fuck the idols? Because it's obvious anyone that likes kpop is mostly interested for that reason. I find that more annoying that people that at least admit they're into it because they want to fuck asian twinks.

A lot of kpop fans are flaming fujoshis/ fakebois who use the LGBT community as an excuse to fetishize Kpop boys and draw them fucking for some reason. I hate RPF so much.

They also feel the need to fit in so they use oppression points, cishet=0, nonbinarylesbo+aroace+black=1,000,000. Kpop twt basically consists of tumblrinas. I saw a fan tweet that BTS' beats was inspired by American slave hymns. Like who tf even thinks of shit like that, my black ass would never.

As one of the anons fawning over idols in the general thread, I agree. Super sage for blogpost, but a big part of why I like NCT is actually because of how shallow it is. No fake deep concepts, no particularly nasty attitudes, no uglies; just an ever-growing group of cute, endearingly cringey twinks singing mediocre pop songs about simple shit, pushing out a steady flow of fan service, and dicking around together. That's pretty much all I could ever ask for out of a Kpop boy group. Anything that strayed from that formula would not appeal to me at all, even if the music was good.

Him looking so androgynous makes him hyper sexual to fangirls, that's why I'd say he's the most sexualized member in BTS. Bighit also helped creating this 'sexy persona' when he's actually a very shy guy and probably arrogant as well. It's a great combination to attract weird girls. Not to mention fujoshits making shit that involves him getting fucked in the ass by JK. He looks like a twink tbh.

I think I used to really like BTS because I enjoyed and could buy into their underdog status. Their reaction to receiving a daesung was seriously cute and made me feel good for them.

But ever since their management has angled toward appealing to western market, their music and personas have changed for the worse.

I hate this type of comment so much. If anything, BTS was way more “western” friendly at the start of their career, that’s why they went nowhere with the korean public but stealdily gained i-fans.

As soon as they started with the flower boy crap and pastel hair/colored contacts they took off in Korea. Now their music is a noisy jumbled mess that resembles current kpop way more than anything that’s on western radio. Yeah they are still stealing beats and imitating popular rappers but they’ve always done that, now it’s just more blatant because they are stealing more current sounds.

Anyone else think that Somi terminating her contract with JYP is suspicious? I can't see JYP letting go of a potential cash cow that easily. Feels like it might be because of a scandal. Or she could just be bored of idol life I guess.

This is gonna sound dramatic as fuck, but I gasped reading this post. Genuinely surprised because extremely popular rookie under the same company managing the most successful GG at the moment? That’s (almost) guaranteed money.

It might (?) be because Somi was involved in that drinking “scandal” and occasionally you’ll come across Korean thoughts on her popularity on 101 being a result of international voters and that she’s overexposed. This is major reaching though, because that might only be rumors based off of biased translations to churn drama. A more realistic reason might be she (and her stage dad) chose to terminate because of a delay in the next JYPE girl group, possibly due to Twice still at the top of the game, Stray Kids trying to make a name for themselves, and the influx of “girl crush” groups at the moment. Why sit around and get put into more survivals shows, wasting your popularity and youth when she can find another company or go into acting/variety/etc.

I hope it’s somehow related to the Shewol Ferry cult JYP’s involved with, for maximum absurdity.

I think her leaving because of the next girl group being delayed probably makes the most sense.

People keep bringing up her dad but wouldn't he want her to stay at JYP for more exposure or something? She's already popular on her own but she will probably do better at JYP than at another smaller company. Though maybe they saw how the members of Twice rarely get their own solo work and decided they'd rather Somi stay solo. Isn't JYP's press conference about the cult next month? I guess there's no way to know unless someone leaks the details.

i noticed something about k-pop music videos that this exemplifies perfectly, it's that there's never really any plot. there are different sets and different outfits but never any action that pushes it forward, just shots of idols running. the most beloved western pop videos are basically short movies set to music, but even if k-pop videos have a concept they never have a storyline, if that makes sense. i thought loona might be different since love4eva had some acting in it, but with this it's all just random images and easter eggs. and, again, the running.

I cringed so hard at their close-ups, especially Suga's stupid expression. To be honest I started paying attention to kpop more because of the fame BTS was getting at the start of the year. And it just hit me that they are really ugly in comparison to other groups. Not that is super important, but kpop is clearly more interested in looks that actual talent, so I find it really odd.

I also agree with the anon that said that V used to look attractive and is getting uglier and uglier. Can't really pinpoint why…

Also green screen looking shitty lol. I hope actual MV is a lot more interesting, Fake Love at least had a cool MV, but this one looks really cheap.

I think they all used to look better during their earlier MVs, because even if it was try-hard and "we manly" as fuck they did look like regular (with makeup) boys and not the pastel fairies they are trying to look like now.

I think they looked their best in War of Hormone. And V looked good in DNA era as anon above said. To be honest if I really look at his face in DNA and now it looks the same, but I think the styling, some weight gain and probably stress makes him look worse. That's why I stated I could not really pin point what it was that I didn't like compared to previously.

I agree, but he's looking worse as well with all the bad styling. I've noticed they did give him the least ridiculous hairstyles and such, at least before the pink hair he had recently.

It was similar for me, I got to know BTS about 2 years ago and liked them, was too lazy to research kpop in general and thought that they're the most talented/prettiest anyway because they were the most popular. Then I was surprised that there are many groups where members can actually sing and all of them can dance (not like BTS with Jin and Namjoon being awkward for example) and are more handsome overall.

For me it's the stage presence, or the way they carry themselves that is really attractive and interesting. Like for example, I found myself drawn to Jimin in the BST video, even if all you anons say he's ugly, etc. I think he looked really pretty and androgynous and that was by itself attractive to me.

But then, you see all these idols in their V lives, interviews, fan meetings etc and you can see they are just a bunch of immature, narcissistic, cringy regular teenagers/20 something dudes dabbing everywhere and that hook they had on you just goes POOF

It definitely does, it's odd watching the Behind the Scenes and seeing how different it looks with a regular camera. Also stage makeup it's sooo thick on the selfies they take and upload to Twitter. In person it must look so bad.

As I stated on >>284365, it's not the lack of makeup that turns me off, even if some do look better with it. It's their childish personalities that make them unfuckable. Imagine being on one of those fan meetings where they talk to the audience, full of aegyo, "sexy dances" and frivolous "you're so handsome" comments between each other. I would facepalm so hard I would have no face by the end of it.

Also, talking about that, is anyone else really disgusted with the constant "you're so handsome" members say to each other? I've noticed it a lot on NCT videos for example. Are they really superficial or do they want to fuck each other so much? Same with Jin from BTS, when did it become acceptable or even attractive being super vain in Korea?

yes, literally highlights how some of the members are literally there because they are considered good looking. not so much disgusted but just a minor annoyance. it's not like all the members need to be ~~talented~~ but you don't need to make the reason you're only there so blatant all the time. it's almost as if they say it out of spite since they've realized this themselves, jin especially considering V gets called the visual all the time

I'm still curious as to why SM decided to be as petty as they were back then, it's not like they don't have other idols that run businesses next to promoting with their groups. The way SM treated SNSD in general during/after that time is astounding to me, they were one of their biggest cashcows with a good balance of actual talent (singing, dancing, performing) and variety skills and a hardcore fanbase, yet they totally mismanage their 10th anniversary comeback and lose 3 members of the group? I just can't understand why they do the things they do lol

Personally I think she had wanted to do her own thing for awhile. People get mad when its brought up that she was basically not even trying anymore. Also, lots of rumors about her and Taeyeon being at eachothers throats and Taeyeon(along with Yoona) was the groups cash cow. I dont think its a stretch that she wanted to do her own thing. Also, the incident at the airport basically showed SM was being very careless. Then the drama with her sisters group. So maybe she wanted out but because of the contract she couldnt go. Then maybe she started trying to break the rules a bit to be let go, with the fashion line and stuff. Plus wasnt she supporting the Chinese EXO members which were also locked in lawsuits with SM at the time? I think she was technically kicked, basically SM beating her to the punch instead of letting her go awol on her own. This is all wild speculation on my part, but considering Kpop is an industry of lies and illusions and lawsuits to keep silence, who knows when we will find things out the truth.

I wonder what made Bighit decide to change their entire style. Something happened in the HYYH era and their sound started to change. Despite the style change, the HYYH albums were actually pretty good. The Wings & YNWA era wasn't bad but it wasn't so good either, their sound started get kinda generic, the only really good songs were Spring Day and Lie (in my opinion). I think these Love Yourself albums are their worst work, I don't understand how they got the most attention internationally.

First because fans liked them for their "good stuff" and now are so delulu the will like anything they release and lie to themselves that they like it. Also because people are really into the whole fake woke "we're all perfect humans beings" stuff going on, and them acting like they care about that stuff fits their social justice warrior agenda.

Seriously though. Love Yourself albums are associated with their UNICEF campaign and I'm kinda disappointed at how they didn't use this opportunity to make songs about a lot of related topics. If you are going to go all social justice, do it genuinely. It's obvious when people are faking it for their personal gain.

I just realized why I hate BTS so much now in comparison to Dope or Fire. It's because they are fucking DEPRESSING. I got introduced to them with some really fun poppy tracks, but now all their latest MVs are so emo and fake deep. It's POP music guys! Just dance and have fun. Like in the BAPSAE dance practice, which I really liked and was one of the first videos I saw of them.

Why go this depressing route? How is this making more money than having some pretty boys sing and dance to pop music? No wonder they look so depressing and bored lately. They lost all their charm to me.

eh i wouldn't say they're evil either, but it's quite obvious they are just doing what their company tells them and profiting, which is their job so idc, but if you're going to profit off of such a topic and impressionable people at least make it seem somewhat genuine. i think i read somewhere that even some of the bts members themselves don't even understand their concept or storylines

I think usually teenagers go for either the fun group or the emo one to identify themselves. I would understand if they started all emo and deep, but they just did a complete 180° and it's really jarring to me…

Well now that I think about it.. they were really emo at the start too like in Danger MV lol. So maybe the fun tracks where the odd ones?

I think this is a problem with kpop groups in general and them changing their music each comeback. And then fans want to label them as true artists, lol, no actual music group would sell themselves so hard to fit a completely different concept and sound each year.

It's a pretty common thing. A lot of Koreans almost always bring ramen and gochujang in their luggage with them when they go on holiday.

I'm starting to think that's what they want to archieve though? Fake Love was kind of okay but this is just…Confusing. The song it's bad and catchy but I think the main message is ''I couldn't care less about what you think'', people -and themselves- think we are awesome so…Fuck the rest?
Not in the ''love myself'' way at all (as fans will try to defend), just ''I can do whatever shit I like, I'm still in BTS and people will love me no matter what''.
It's kind of infuriating how much I hate this song and to think that maybe that's what they wanted.
The video is so all over the place that I don't know if I find it amusing or obnoxious.
I already saw fans trying to defend the scene where V is being mobbed but I don't know if they realize they're their own FANS mobbing them? Not haters or antis as they claim, just fans who have no control. It's kind of ironic tbh.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand BTS. The music is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of German literature most of the references will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Taehyung's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from van Gogh's artwork, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these references, to realise that they're not just artistic- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike BTS truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the depth in Jimin's existential catchphrase "La La La La," which itself is a cryptic reference to Le Guin's American philosophical fiction The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Bang PD-nim's genius wit unfolds itself on their computer screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

And yes, by the way, i DO have a tattoo in Korean that i can't read. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ARMY's eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel anons 😎

Its crazy because i do NOT remember it being like that with the other generations. Sure, there were times when members would lose weight or develop eating disorders or would be naturally thin but it was always so obvious and actually scandalous. Remember Yuri's anorexia? Remember how people would tease Sooyoung because of how thin she was? And girls that werent as thin were usually complimented by the media for being bagel girls or having "athletic" bodies. Like Bekah and Kahi from After School. Of course some were called chubby or shamed like Sulli and the members of T-ara, but thats an unfortunate reality everywhere when you gain more weight than people are used to seeing you as. Now its the norm to be very underweight and frail always it seems.

The truly incredible thing about BTS' music and the "Love Yourself" series in particular that I think goes really underappreciated is that each release is worse than the last, so when they release new awful songs, the previously released awful songs seem much better than they used to by comparison.

I didn't like DNA when it released, but after hearing Fake Love, which was much worse, it wasn't as bad anymore. And now, after hearing Idol? DNA is actually a pretty good song and Fake Love wasn't that bad. What a genius strategy!!

Personally, even if that were the point of them making a hideous MV and a shitty ass song, and a new album that's barely new. BTS saying that just shows they only care about the money and fame.

The meaning behind that song is really vague and further contributes to BTS's pseudo-deep stuff. I also find that theory a little funny since some BTS members not too long ago also looked down on idols and idol life.

No. 285029

When you look at BTS as individuals, most of them lack a lot for their positions.
I find Jhope to be the most talented one in BTS. He is a really good dancer so he pulls off his main dancer position well, and he has a good stage presence. He is actually good at coming up with catchy songs too. I think he'd do fine as a solo artist if he continued that way

I'd say that he's pretty unlikely to succeed as a solo artist. The only reason any of these guys are getting any attention individually is because of their role as a part of an extremely popular group, not because of individual talent. I can't vouch for whether or not he's a good dancer or comes up with catchy songs (though I do believe their role in the composition of their own music is greatly exaggerated), but I do know that he's even the least popular within the group due to his messed up looking face. He could be as talented as you say, but talent is irrelevant to kpop fans. I can't see him getting anywhere with that mug kek

I definitely don't think that all 7 of the members can make it big outside of BTS, but at least a couple of them will probably stick around for a while. I want them to break up already so that we can watch what happens

I thought of it in a "which member of BTS would be able to continue pursuing music and give good concerts by his own" way. I see your point and I agree that they are getting attention because of BTS and not because of their individual talent, but a pretty face won't make up for the lack of talent in music for a long time. If people aren't getting good performances, they will eventually get bored.

Not only are you right about talent being irrelevant to kpop fans, but he's not very talented at all. The other members of BTS are just so talentless they make him look better in comparison. He's a fine dancer, but shit at everything else, even by kpop standards.

BTS really is a shit group. The fact that everything about their group (rap line, vocal line, looks, choreo/dancing abilities (outside of j-hope), concepts, styling, etc.) is so painfully weak even compared to other shitty boy groups yet they've still managed to gain this much traction is wild to me.

I would like to think that Jungkook would be the member to make it big once BTS disbands but his production quality is so damn basic that all his fans can link this song to are the ships he's associated with like Jikook or Taekook. Anything he does or is interested in is for the ~~romantic love~~ he feels towards a member.

From the music he makes to his photography/vlogs he actually seems passionate about (which I actually find to be a cute redeeming quality about him), all his fans seem to think is uwu he's dating that member.

I agree, they took the one in a million opportunity they had when their group randomly went viral and managed to keep the momentum for this long, it's very impressive.

The way they handle BTS PR is spot on - they managed to make the fans of their completely manufactured group believe it is somehow more authentic and organic than all the others. They're selling that boyfriend fantasy so well. I think that's why I'm impressed. They saw their initial concept was a flop and did a total 180 and turned their group into a cash cow while making the fandom actually believe this is the most authentic self-producing group in the history of kpop. They have an advantage over companies like SM whose bread and butter is the flower boy boyfriend fantasy because their fans actually believe their shit is genuine, when it's no less manufactured than a company like SM. They got their fans to do most of the PR for them, I think that's amazing. You know, in an evil, capitalistic sort of way.

Psy's music videos are actually fun to watch because he doesn't take them so seriously and he enjoys having fun with them and being wacky, it's like he's self aware his videos can get silly but doesn't mind it, and makes it part of the charm. But then you watch the mess that was the new BTS video that tried way too hard to be serious and the delusional 14yo fans saying "ITS TOO DEEP YOU DONT GET IT" it's hilarious. Yeah, because it's not just fun silly pop music to dance to and shitty graphics and horrendous costumes and CGI when your korean boyfriends do it, it must have a "deeper sarcastic intellectual meaning guyz u just understand its art". Lmao I don't know why these people can't for once say they don't enjoy a song or video or two, even when it's as bad as this. It's okay to admit you don't like everything your fave artists puts out, calm the hell down, they end up making themselves look stupid trying to convince everyone that a shitty k pop song is a masterpiece.

Anyway, just as expected, the video was an ugly jumbled mess and the aggressive scream-singing was cringey to listen to. Especially when reading the lyrics. Lmao I swear I laughed for a minute straight after reading the "Hooray this is awesome" lyric towards the end. This is the masterpiece that BTS and their fans are creaming themselves over, folks

Their predebut songs were all decent to great and they had nice videos and a vague story to keep viewers interested. However they have not managed to carry that level of quality over to debuting as a full group. They shot themselves in the foot with the “girl of the month” gimmick and having twelve members since they only ever intended to feature about five of them and half the group is left with 2 seconds of lines each.

Speaking of LOONA, watching stages with all them together, they seem… incohesive? I know they're "new" but I've never really thought this about other rookie groups that just debuted. Like, their dancing and music fine, but something is just missing. The only one with any stage presence is Chuu.

probably bc they're all so used to having their own spotlight or working in smaller, tighter groups. i think the "each member having their own song" was cute but i don't think it helped with building the group up together as one unit.

i felt the same way, they all worked well on their own or in small units but when i first saw that teaser of them dancing together in their practice room it felt so…off, it didn't really feel right

I think the industry is so saturated that it's hard to see what's so special about 12 girls dancing in tennis skirts, when there are tons of other girls doing the exact same thing, especially with that basic debut song, shit music video too.

The CEO of Loona's company doesn't give a shit about debt. He said he'll spend however much he needd to make ~quality content~. He also said he doesn't care for popularity or sales…Lies.

As much as I love girl groups, the K-industry don't care for women. He should've done boy of the month instead, imagine how much more popular and money-making they would be, especially since raging straight fangirls always need something to get wet too when they get bored of their main.

For me it's choreographies+pretty boys, as >>285486 said, they nailed the formula for selling 'your perfect boyfriend' image. I've also always loved music videos and kpop is really good at them. If only the music was decent and the whole industry wasn't a shitshow.

I can't stand RM. I don't care too much about BTS's other members, in fact I used to think they were funny even if it was a fake personality (IRL J Hope it's nothing like they try to picture) but I can't stand RM.
I'm sure he's the leader of the band because he can't sing, he can't dance and with Suga, his ''rap skills'' aren't that impressive. And he tries so hard to be all smart and smug about everything because he used to be a top A* student. So what? That doesn't mean that he's better than anyone else but his fans and even himself try to depict it as that.
Always with those deep words and metaphors I can't be bothered to read his updates anymore. I remember one Run episode when they had to get out of one escape room and as time passed he was getting so pissed because even Jimin could discover something relevant and he couldn't kek that fake smile…
I used to be a big BTS fan tbh but they tried too hard to make people bellieve that they're just different and special, not like other bands, so much uwu and cute babies that now it just makes me cringe so hard. They're almost all adults now, they couldn't care less about haters on internet but armies are so convinced they need to defend BTS above all because they will be so proud of their fans…Yes, sure.

One thing that's odd is the gilded image that people seem to have over Kpop, despite similar manufactured bands in Europe and USA being looked at more objectively. It's so common for example, for boybands to end up in debt, ether due to problems with their company, not making enough to pay back for the costs of all those tours, travel etc or personally mismanaging their money. I think the latter must be a big problem in Kpop, seeing as most of the "idol" have been in the industry since they were kids. Even adult boyband stars in the 'west' say that they have issues with no longer being told what to do with their days, or getting validation. In Kpop, it seems worse compared to western artists, as they appear to have zero autonomy, they have to act like kids, they can't be political or honest, and then they have to permanently mess up their health by being underweight and getting surgery. It does seem like it's kids that are being pushed into this industry by parents, who maybe want a celebrity child, at any expense. Maybe if there was a proper exposing of the prostitution and exploitation within the industry, public opinion might be a bit more critical rather than international fans thinking it' cute when unnie faint on stage.

this is why i'm not truly delusional about wanting to date some kpop idol or celebrity. i'm sure they have absolutely no idea how to handle themselves without some sort of assistance and are probably terrible about needing constant validation. would be an absolute joke to "date" one if you could even call it that, which would probably only consist of face timing them while they're getting their hair extensions put in lmao.

going back to the debt and prostitution issue, it'll probably never truly happen but i really hope there would be some sort of awareness about it. so many people made fun of G.NA for her prostitution scandal and ran her out but i can only imagine the amount of debt or the type of obligations she had over her head. you can say whatever you want about a lot of these idols just wanting attention and fame but i still think its terrible that just wanting to pursue your dreams might mean having to prostitute yourself or putting yourself in harms way, or even being forced into it. there's that one actress from boys over flowers who was repeatedly raped and abused and she still never got the proper trials, even with names listed and everything. sad.

i could see big bang continuing to work out after military if they evolve their sound some more and continue with the mature sounds, but songs like bangx3 has gotta go.

All the while… making such SHIT music. If they were putting out decent songs while all this was happening I could ignore the rest but their music is so, so bad, and they look like freaks.

It's kind of sad really, he looked doofy but like a normal guy. When I first noticed BTS Suga looked like the more normal one of the bunch, but he's getting paler, skinnier and more effeminate by the second. I never figured he would get so much into the "kpop look", he seemed the most reluctant to me.

I know rappers don't have to commit to one particular "manly" look, but I would feel embarrased to call myself one and look so girly all the time. Imagine collaborating with actual famous rappers looking like the selfie above anon posted with the jewelry and makeup. Yeah, so badass lol.

Suga likes to pretend he doesn't really care for the whole idol thing and that his music and having his music heard is the most important thing to him, but he clearly loves the idol shit, probably more than the rest of them.
The only time I could see him hating it like everybody pretends he does, is when BTS was a broke nugu group.

I used to think Mark from nct was a cute and talented kid but now he comes off as a boring social inept that tries too hard to play the nice idol character…

It seems like after shinee's debut sm started giving their new groups autism pills, that's why exo, red velvet and nct are so bad at variety which is a shame because I like some of the members of each group and the company gives them nice songs (at least they suit my tastes) but exo's showtime was 80% boring, same with nct's trip to japan thing… As for red velvet, I tend to cut some slack to gg because they have to act even more soft and cute to get that uncle buck (which results into a watered down version of their personalities) but once you've watched a couple of shows and your curiosity dies because you feel like you know them already, it's absolutely pointless to keep up with their promotions aside from music shows, specially when fans make compilations of the few funny or interesting moments.

I also blame show producers and writers because, always asking them if they have a "talent" so they come up with the dumbest quirky "ability" or making them do the same things over and over like they only promote in one show during the comeback period gets really boring… I think that's why non fans are tired of idols being everywhere, they keep trying to push them into every single piece of media without taking into account if they're actually good at it of have anything to contribute, which results into bad rep for them and the company but at the end of the day, they only care about making money and doing fanservice so I don't even know why I'm complaining lol

i honestly feel like this is with kpop in general. i think with the increase in social media it has just made for a cesspool of fans. not that they weren't before but social media just gives them a whole new platform. years ago idol shows were actually interesting, as different groups and members were allowed to interact with each other and different shows could have different concepts without fans being absolute butthurt or trying to ship the fuck out of them.
>if they have a "talent" so they come up with the dumbest quirky "ability" or making them do the same things over and over
i'm the same anon who brought up the irene not filling out the form hate, and i think things like this are exactly why idol show ratings are down so low and makes idols branch out to other medias. PDs try to avoid having different idols together so they only invite the one group and there's only so much you can do, so all these shows do the same thing from personality forms, "talents", trends, etc. i realize that sometimes different groups or idols will do a show together but it isn't often. i also think idols having insane schedules contributes to this too. with idols not being able to promote themselves as effectively on shows, i think companies then try to branch them out to bring more attention to them.

anyways, sorry it's so long but it's some food for thought

Jeonghan’s long hair always kind of weirded me out because his face is so masculine compared to other members and the fandom played up the uwu long hair feminine yas qween thing so much (at least what from what I’ve seen of it; I don’t keep up with SVT). I get the whole anime prince thing they seemed to be going for but the fandom’s response is just strange to me lol. To me he’s handsome, not pretty and certainly not ‘prettier than most female idols xD’ like some stans seem to furiously masturbate over.

And because of this exaggerated behavior idols and producers have to be super careful in order to keep the fans happy, even nowadays anytime exo is on variety if someone says or does something "bad" to one of the members they immediately apologize to their fans, which is pretty sad.

>i also think idols having insane schedules contributes to this too

absolutely, working on such a hectic industry just makes performers and staff tired to the point of not being able to do a good job and promotes recycling ideas and producing mediocre content (>so all these shows do the same thing).

When you look past the layering of the clothes, the colorful hairstyles and the makeup you realize how empty kpop videos usually are and that can apply to anything really, from actual songs to variety shows, without all the editing and effects, people would immediately realize how little thought goes onto them.

>if someone says or does something "bad" to one of the members they immediately apologize to their fans, which is pretty sad.
same anon who responded to you, but i think this contributes to companys having entire scripts for when they go onto shows and such and makes the whole thing just that more void. shit the whole thing with tzuyu simply waving the flag of her home country caused an entire controversy and to this day it makes it difficult for twice to even promote in china, taking a chunk out of the possibility for them to make more money in one the biggest markets. but it's just so obvious how scripted and puppety idols are, and doing anything outside of it throws the whole act off.

You may be right, but it's the same issue I have with Yuta. If I look at predebut and now he looks more or less similar since the monster chin is no longer there. But he still looks bad to me. I have no idea why, it's like you can sense the plastic (or extra plastic considering most of them already had surgery before debut). Maybe it's only styling and the extra pale skin compared to their younger selves.

but seriously, the only one i know of is baepsae, a song where the message is basically 'doesnt it suck to have a class divide?'. i like that song lol, but other than that they literally have nothing, its all armys either frolicking in dreamworld or placing their own overwrought theories all over BTS' music and lyrics

그녀 literally means "That girl", so the song is not gender neutral.

It's true that there is no grammatical gender such as him/her/he/she in Korean, but it's pretten common to say "that girl/woman" or "that boy/man" and then it gets translated to him/her/she/he to make it sound more natural.

Horny housewives? Lol. Once they started publicly dating(which they should have been able to do in the first place) most of their male fans started dropping out because their precious borderline 30 year old waifus MIGHT not be virgins anymore.

Those are typical korean work habits. They have to “look busy” so they might stay in their dance studios all night or whatever but half the time they are just fucking around. As long as they put in the time by just being physically present, they can nap and fuck around on their phones and do whatever. Then they can complain about how hard they worked and how much they suffer.

I'm genuinely amazed at how bad BTS new release turned out to be, you'd think now they'd be able to get popular western producers to make stuff for them, what is this trash? Do they save on music production or something? Fans are praising the choreo so much, but it's so bland? It looks like a mix of Not Today and Fire. And why did they have to deliver the message to the haturz again, they already did it with the Mic Drop. They're acting like some lolcows on this site who get defensive for the pettiest reasons.

has any other sm idol given up as early as yeri has? i know she was a big fan/friend of jonghyun but her fans using that as a defense of her never being any good are reaching.

tvxq- jaejoong and changmin were probably the worst dancers but could still keep up and put effort in, jaejoong was the second best singer and changmin improved massively when they became a duo
snsd- tiffany is famously a terrible dancer but was enthusiastic enough that people found it cute, even jessica didn't completely phone it in until about 6 years into debut. they're way past their best at dancing but a few years in they still had pretty tight formations
shinee- i never followed super closely but again, i don't remember anyone ever being so bad at dancing that they threw off the group
fx- also didn't follow much but the only time someone clearly gave up was sulli right before she quit being an idol to model for a pedo instead
exo- really didn't follow but all of the critique i've seen is of some of them being bad dancers but not of being lazy or anything

i don't find a lot of sm visuals like sehun attractive but at least then the designated useless member is actually getting fashion deals and stuff, yeri really does seem like one of the most useless idols in sm history. yoona spent years as the basic pretty idol, yoochun was popular and composed some of db5k's best songs, krystal gets a lot of fashion/photoshoot work, minho got a lot of acting jobs even if he's not that good, but yeri isn't that popular, doesn't get work outside of rv, doesn't contribute much to the group and actively takes away from them sometimes

speaking of idols who are only friends with idols that can benefit them, when i used to really be into kpop i noticed that a lot of these big name idols would be friends with other big name idols and then when one of them would fall off suddenly you didn't hear much about them being friends as much. if my memory serves right, "back in the day" when T-ARA fell off i'm pretty sure a lot of fellow idols didn't mention them anymore. ig it makes sense since you wouldn't possibly want to lose your brand for such a petty reason like being friends with a "controversial" idol but i can't help but feel it's a lil shady.

given how often idols stop being friends or seem to eventually hate each other I wish there was more talk about it, it's like when old Disney channel stars would be dating or have drama with each other and be mortal enemies, even idols in their mid 20s act about as mature as teen stars. there's not enough petty friendship drama in kpop and hardly anybody even translates the rumor mills that have about a 50:50 chance of being completely fake.

I want to know how real the beef between Jessica and Taeyeon was, if the rest of Miss A really hated Suzy, there's the thing where Twice's Jeongyeon seems to hate Jimin, Jaejoong still posts bitchy emo girl posts about BoA nearly 10 years after they stopped being best friends, Super Junior probably got into some real fights at some point. I find rumors about idols hating each other way more exciting than dating rumors but fans claim every single idol has RBF and doesn't hate anyone/have a bad attitude

After School would definitely have some of the most interesting stories if any of them actually opened up about it, but it seems like they all want to just move on from it.

Do any of the others still hang out with Kahi? I thought it was kind of a known fact by now that she was way too strict on the younger members and took the leader role too seriously and said some of the younger girls deserved to be hit, then after she left said the others bullied her and left her out. I honestly think shed be criticized more for that and for being really strict on Produce 101 if it wasn't for Park Yoochun's scandal. Having your ex be accused of multiple sexual assaults when you're now happily married with kids is always going to make your image seem better. If it wasn't for that then she'd get more shit for being obsessed with hierarchies and the fact that she was 23 and he was 17 would probably come up too.

tiffany makes me cringe for a few reasons but i honestly can't dislike her. she was really cute when she was starting out and had the short haircut, she's like an eager horse girl from school, i've got a soft spot for her. i think she's still pushing the "snsd isn't disbanding! 8 members forever!" stuff too much to expect her to spill any beans about drama stuff but she's been more open and human in the english interviews she's been doing lately. the imperial flag scandal was dragged out way longer than it needed to be when all she should've had to do was make a generic but genuine "i wasn't thinking and made a mistake" apology and had a short reflection period before coming back, i wish she could talk about how the way she was treated was bullshit but that would mean she's permanently blacklisted from going back to korea really

that and the reaction to top's scandal have got to be two of the biggest bullshit reactions to idol scandals i've ever seen. dude ODed and his mom was crying about if he'd wake up and the comments were awful. a lot of the time when idols get criticised i don't care because i think it's just part of what happens when a lot of people know who you are, but every so often there's the big scandal of somebody getting death threats over something so minor. the top thing only came to mind because right after the collab with bts went out nicki minaj posted a video of her smoking a blunt and it's just still so wild how strong the backlash against him was

>but every so often there's the big scandal of somebody getting death threats over something so minor

it's funny how such minor issues get blasted the most but issues such as rape, DUIs, assault, and much more is hushed and thoroughly questioned. it's a death sentence to your career for simply looking at your nails and don't you dare try to explain yourself but if you rape someone or kill/harm someone while drunk driving the victim must be throughly questioned or we must see all sides of the situation. it's absolutely ridiculous.

I guess this is what I find weird with this kind of fan behavior. They get offended when people bring up BTS' not-so-perfect sides, when people say they got plastic surgery, when people say they are a manufactured group/their genre is kpop, when someone criticizes BTS in a negative way, when another fan doesn't like every single song BTS releases. If you love them as much as you say you do, are you going to drop them if they get plastic surgery (which I don't think should be shamed), or if they release a bad song? You don't have to blindly support them, you can say that a song is bad if you think it's bad, you can disagree with something they did. You don't have to see them as perfect beings that can do no wrong and try to prove it to everyone.

Tiffany always made me cringe with her singing and dancing. She just reminds me of a theater kid who wants to be a singer but doesnt have any real outstanding talent. I always thought she was the best looking one during the Genie era. Short hair does suit her long face better.

the thing is that its so clear a majority of them if not all of them have gotten plastic surgery, why not just accept it and encourage them that they don't need to do any more? i think it's dumb when fans in general don't just own up to the plastic surgery, like jesus christ where do you think they live? of course the majority of them have had it especially in the industry they're in. i still see taeyeon fans argue she hasn't had a lick of plastic surgery, but it's just so obvious its ridiculous at this point. i guess my point is that armys put so much pressure on that narrative, it's kind of pointless. same with blindly supporting them, so what if they make one bad song? it takes criticism to make something good. idk, ig it's just super ridiculous to me

i think its because of the parasocial relationship. they think of the idol as their uwu husbando/precious child so they won't hear any criticism of them or they get buttmad. like you're criticising their family member, not a music artist.

the twitter safe space no-wrongthink-allowed only positivity and love for our boys thing probably contributes too.

she always seemed so sweet to me
she got the shit end of the stick from pretty early on i think with what happened between her and her parents, and then having the most antis from the beginning with people telling her to kill herself and saying she was the reason her mom killed herself etc
so im with you i have a soft spot for her too and wish her well
