not even surprised that bang si hyuk (bang PD) apparently said something about "liking the way he views the world" about Akimoto Yasushi, the man they're collaborating with for their japanese comeback. they continue to work with a bunch of shitty people within their company and they even collaborated with nicki minaj despite her recent issues. business is business ig, but armys swear bighit cares sooooo much about "the boys" outside of money.

am i the only one who thinks taeyeon was ALWAYS overrated look wise?
people are dogging on her plastic surgery but honestly she wasnt particularly pretty to begin with without a ton of makeup

No. 295510

i personally think she was fairly cute during their early years but not a stunning beauty like that of a korean beauty such as jun ji hyun or of the likes. her face is a little too doughy and childish for me to think she was a top beauty, so i do think she was a little overrated especially after her plastic surgery. she's always been just cute/pretty to me; not bad to look at but overrated.

tiffany, jessica, or yoona were way prettier to me than taeyeon.

They are acting like the BIGGEST douches on this song, also it sucks as I predicted it would. Sehun really is useless, he doesn't even sing only talks the whole song. He raps but he's so unconvincing as a rapper it hurts. Chanyeol should sing and leave rapping to other idols.

I looked up pre-debut pictures of Yoona and I think she honestly looked great aside from maybe her nose. She was already so pretty and didn’t need a jawshave. Now her face reminds me of an oddly shaped egg and the skin around her chin area sags so much. Like, her neck looks too lonk compared to the rest of her face now.

I'm not familiar with SNSD since I got into kpop recently, but I remember seeing said photo on a plastic surgery thread. Yuri is it right? God, look at that sag on her jaw, it's terrible. And it's not the expression on her face, there's a more photos that show how progressively worse it got.

No. 295867

I don’t see anything wrong with her nose here. It’s not big in any way and suits her face. You should be able to breathe through those things, you know.

Honestly she along with most other idols was pretty enough from the start, prettier than many idols that have had tons of procedures. This compulsively destroying idols’ faces seemingly just for the hell of it sends the message that they’re trying really hard to compensate for something they know they’re lacking in. Talent, stage presence, body shape, who cares just cut a little here and there and make them starve and people will have something else to talk about. Sigh.

Whoever makes the decision to put a 14yo under the knife deserves to be shot in the face, no edge or PS joke intended. It’s so fucking vile.

I feel bad for younger iola nd trainees who get so much work done in their teen years. A lot of procedures don’t age well and so much growth naturally occurs in those teen years. To have chemical injections and bone re-structuring done when you’re fifteen before your natural features can finally settle in is risky.

Anyway, I know that Jessica’s gotten comments about having a really strong jaw pre-debut but I don’t think she needed the shave either. Her features were already so pretty.

I don’t get why Koreans insist that Sooyoung is one of the uglier SNSD members along with Hyoyeon and Sunny. Is it because she’s naturally tanner and kept her naturally rounder, squarer jae after debut instead of opting for a v-line? If so, Korea’s beauty standards are really too stupid and narrow. She’s one of the members who was already pretty pre-debut.

No. 295896

i don’t listen to kpop like 99% of the posters in these threads but k beauty standards get on my last fucking nerve. like i thought we had it bad enough in the west lmao we really don’t. i almost feel bad for all the non-korean kpoppies for having assembly line women and guys to look up to but that’s their problem for having shit taste and fetishizing actual people.

fr though, is it true that plastic surgery is a super common present for an 18th birthday? it’s not even racist to say they look exactly the same at this point, they’re made that way.

She’s one of the prettiest girls in Kpop imo. She looks doll-like and her eyes are super big and doe-y and beautiful. Putting her on the same level as Hyoyeon and Sunny is shitty.

Anyway, she definitely has the hottest boyfriend among all members (present and past) so I highly doubt she’s considered genuinely homely though.

No. 295900

I think it's her nose rather than her jaw, it's not the high and pointy type they like. They say she looks South East Asian and I can see it, but that's a bad thing to Koreans. And yeah, the tan obviously.

No. 295903

Are you blind? She most definitely messed with her jaw, square where? Koreans don’t like her because she isn’t as baby faced and cute as say taeyeon, or yoona. She also doesn’t have that kinda basic korean ~look~ to her Idk. I thought she was Philippino or something when I first got into snsd. She looks great these days tho, shame about the nose.

No. 295908

sunny is one of the ugliest idols period
her nepotism ass made it pretty far in the fandom in the beginning because she could pull off that over the top cutesy and funny fake bullshit they made her do

No. 295909

she was always considered pretty i thought, and complimented for being thin and tall like a model

No. 295916

Gross, I really hate Korea’s superiority complex over Southeast Asians. Strangely enough, many Southeast Asians naturally have some features that Koreans will get surgery for (big doe-like eyes, less angular faces) but they’re still seen as ugly.

I don't find her ugly exactly but really really plain without her brand. I mean there are so many stunning Thai women/girls out there I think her features are really pedestrian. She wouldn't have gotten anywhere if she wasn't really rich.

I'm in the same boat as you anon. I don't listen to kpop but these days it feels inescapable so I end up having opinions. I agree the beauty standards are shit. The most embarrassing part in my opinion is that all seems to be part of a sort of nationalist overcompensation like "Our women are most beautiful in the world","Our men are the most handsome" "We Koreans have the whitest purest skin". It all comes down to this strange inferiority complex that's both desperate and unattractive.
The fact that they obsess about "visuals" and "proportions" says it all imo.
To contrast, take Japan- which has it's own laundry list of issues ranging from obsessive infantilization to ana-tier body worship- but at least due to "cuteness" being the gold standard and not perfect beauty they don't all buy the same face at the ps office.

No. 295935

I find her really pretty tbh. I know she doesn’t sing or rap very well but she seems to be a genuinely talented dancer from what I’ve seen of her, although I do think she hasn’t been allowed to showcase it enough for anyone to really judge it but that’s on YG’s cheap ass.

I remember a lot of people thought she was white or at least part white when she first debuted. What do you guys think?

No. 295936

She did have a nose job. It's just much better more subtle work than average for kpop.

No. 295937

To each his own anon. Tbf they style her really well. She doesn't look mixed to me at all especially if you take a look at some of her more natural less flattering pre-debut pictures.
About her ability; She can dance well because she's has years of expensive private lesson but she doesn't have any kind of natural gift for it if that makes sense. A good dancer makes shit look effortless. Lisa makes it look like work.

This is such and accurate and well-worded statement. The follow K-netizen comments from this one post perfectly exemplify what you're talking about:

>So true, Japan's visuals, especially the guys….. My family oppa is hot in comparison

>I get that too, I'm bellow average in Korea but people call me pretty in Japanㅋㅋㅋ They kinda have different beauty standards than us, people call my oppa "just fine" here but in Japan all the kids are smiling at himㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He never heard that he's "just fine" over there. ㅋ…

After a jaw shave surgery the skin doesn't shrink to fit the new jaw, it stays the same. If a lot of jaw was shaved, this turns the skin into a weird skin sac that doesn't fit the skull which can end up being worse than what the patient started with. Personally, I'd prefer a strong jaw over a sagging one, but that's just me.

She's probably just dealing with the hormonal shit lots of teens experience that messes with their skin. It's one thing to pick apart an adult who can make their own choices, but it feels weird coming after a teenager who's still under her parents' care.

of course if any of them is actually gay, it's okay but you've seen all of these guys being interested in women countless times lol. jungkook's been super talkative about his fanboy crush on iu since he was a kid. this is the group that made the ultimate heterosexual anthem war of hormone for fuck's sake

I watched a good video a while back that theorised South Korea's obsession with beauty and appearance was created from the entertainment they had after they'd become more developed as a country; it was mostly television and game shows with attractive idols and models and such. I think that's pretty accurate when wondering why they're so obsessed with beauty back there to unhealthy standards. Also makes me think they have an inferiority thing where they always fall back on appearance to seem better than other countries and have some sort of advantage because for a while SK was a very undeveloped country in terms of identity. No wonder so many people kill themselves there honestly. Having a whole country fixated on shallow looks and plastic surgery and perfect looking idols to be influenced from is a recipe for disaster and self hate in its people

I mean her being criticized for her weight sucks but thats life as an idol. But what I'm most shocked at is that she seems to have gained alot of weight.

I don't think the conversation would be the same if she was notably talented at something, but unfortunately she's already kind of just an extra member in a group that already has more members than it needs. I think some of the criticism has been a bit harsh, she is just a teenager and some comments would make you think she's obese, but if you don't contribute anything as an idol it might just not be the best path for you at that time

Does anyone else have a problem with fans referring to idols by their real names? Frankly, there are stage names like Suga and J-Hope that sound ridiculous, but fans referring to them by their bio names seems a little too personal. Like, these idols have an image/persona cultivated for them that ties into their stage name. It feels like a boundary's being crossed when you refer to someone you don't even know well like you would with a sibling, good friend, or SO. I don't know.

No. 296281

Yeah I never thought that was right, either. You know them by their stage persona only anyway, address them by their stage name.

No. 296282

Yep. I should also add that you don't typically see Cardi B fans or Nicki Minaj fans refer to them by their real first names. It's so different with K-pop idols. I wonder if it's because of the pseudo-romantic relationships so many idols try to establish with their fans.

No. 296285

i don't mind them using real names only because i hate most kpop idols nicknames even more than i hate their stage names. i hate having to read shit like nabong and dubu used like i know who that is. taengoo is the worst, the word just sounds gross to me

No. 296288

I think it's dramatic to consider it crossing boundaries or offensive/rude to the idol in any way, if the idol was so worried about it they'd hide their real names properly. It's just a really embarassing and transparent attempt by the fan to seem 'close' to their idol, like how they can them 'our boys' etc. It's so performative and unnatural.

No. 296294

>Does anyone else have a problem with fans referring to idols by their real names?
Not really. A lot if not most idols use their given names as stage names anyway, so if the stage name were to create some form of boundary then where would that leave them? Regardless of whether idols use stage names a lot of their nicknames tend to be derived from their real names anyway, so in that case that should be even more intrusive but it’s completely normalized within the industry.

I agree that fans trying to act all intimate and buddy-buddy with idols like they know them IRL is kind of cringey but at the end of the day harms no-one and rather plays into the idol’s favor since a happy fan means yet another stan to buy albums and stream music to fuel their lifestyle.

No. 296298

Doesn't really bother me. IMO that kind of thing depends on how closely they tie their public image to their stage name. Like in this anon's example >>296282 I didn't even know Nicki Minaj's real name for years because she presents herself entirely under the name Nicki Minaj, whereas many idols refer to each other casually by their real names. People rarely call Taehyung "V", so I don't feel weird calling him Taehyung.

There is no reason for I-fans to not use V, or RM, or rapmon, all of which are easier to type/say than namjoon.

Yeah, this stuff only harms BTS. The more they're puffed up in the media as "global artists" (using Spotify numbers as proof etc) the more humiliating it's going to be when it becomes clear that only their fans know who they are, and they fade back into obscurity. As compared to everyone and their dog knowing Gangnam Style. In the UK we had fucking Ed Balls dancing to it on Strictly, people dancing to it at their weddings, etc. That's the kind of popularity with the general public BTS will never achieve.
Sorry to rant a bit more, but part of me wishes that they could just be a popular group in SK/Asia and among Kpop fans, but having the BTS-as-global-megastars hype is setting a standard for them that I just don't believe they can live up to. It's the difference between them having a good career by any normal standard and being set an immensely high standard of "global megastars" that they can't achieve and by THAT standard being a failure. Seems a shame.

No. 296427

i don't think any measure of popularity (expect possibly conterts and tours) is going to be a very accurate reflection of reality so i hate how obsessed with them kpop fans are. people buying 10+ copies of an album seriously inflates the numbers. there's always going to be chinese millionaires buying crates of albums but it's so common now that r/kpop threads about album releases nearly always have some comments like "how many copies is everyone getting, i was thinking 6 this time". i really think album sales could easily be halved in a lot of cases if the numbers were a reflection of purchasers and not purchases. probably more than that in some cases!

i agree anon. i can understand her hype of being pretty, because she is very pretty, but this top ethereal goddess who makes everyone faint when they see her from even a mile away? i've seen so many other idols who have a clean image like her and look a lot better but her ground is unwavering. she also has gotten a shit ton of fairly obvious plastic surgery (which i think has made her look worse than she did before) but k-netz insist she hasn't. also, her acting is terrible.

the way kpop companies have kpoppies snatched by the balls seriously amazes me every time. think about it: we all know the physical album business is dying, and that's what makes artists and companies a good amount of money outside of touring. streaming doesn't do jack shit for them. so they get their stupid rich (sometimes not even rich–just stupid) fans to care about irrelevant charts and titles that convinces them to buy a shit ton of albums just to get them to the top of that chart. sometimes these fans buy them in the bulk, whether it's 10, 30, or 500.
shoot, haven't exo-ls and armies managed to get EXO and BTS to "over" a million album sales just from their bulk buying?

and kpop companies know just a CD won't work, because barely anybody uses them, so they stuff them with a bunch of merchandise like a photo book and cards and stickers and shit. and they make each one individualized by each member of their big ass groups, so fans feel the need to buy a bunch of albums just to get the one they want, since companies make sure not to make it possible to choose which one you'd want a majority of the time.

sorry for the thesis ya'll, i just had to get this out, anytime i think about how much these kpop companies have finessed the physical album business it gets me going LMAO

It’s not that weird that they can’t say them correctly because korean has sounds that English (or whatever other language they speak) doesn’t have. Vise versa too. It’s not natural for them to pronounce a name like jungkook correctly, they don’t know that the k sounds are really in between a g and a k and the last consonant shouldn’t be aspirated at all. Especially korean vowels are so much more rounded than American English ones. Even something as simple as “tae” gets said as “tay” naturally by many English speakers when it really should be a flat “teh” and the stressed words/syllables in korean are different than in English too. Obviously they can’t be perfect and Koreans can’t pronouce English names perfectly either, but when there is an easier to write/pronounce option handed to fans on a silver platter and they choose to instead butcher Korean names and act like it’s just ~easier? Embarrassing.

Agreed, that's what I was thinking as well. I used to study Korean so I understand what you mean. I agree that "Jeongguk" or "Taehyung" aren't the easiest names to pronounce for someone who doesn't speak Korean, I said it's normal that non-Koreans are having trouble pronouncing their real names, but it's weird when these fans constantly hear the correct pronunciations in videos where members talk with each other, yet still pronounce their names wrong.
I saw some video where a shipper was trying to analyze Taehyung and Jeongguk to prove that Taekook is real. She went really deep, went through so many details and obviously watched tons of videos to find proofs, but she was pronouncing their names completely wrong lol. It's funny that they think they know everything about them when they can't even pronounce their names correctly

As much as I rag on ARMYs and BTS now, I’m in a similar boat as you. It’s possible that maybe I just outgrew them and my tastes change, but I remember their music being okay (for K-pop standards) pre-Wings. Like, it was never as ground-breaking and ~ w o k e ~ but they had some fun and/or chill songs. I felt like the members were more humble/down-to-earth too (or at least were way better at pretending they were). Glad I never spent any money supporting this dumpster fire of a group.

I think the enjoyability BTS' music started to go downhill ever since their sound started become less hip-hop. Their rappers are okay for the industry's standards, their vocalists could be considered okay if the group stayed rap-focused. The vocal line of BTS is so weak compared to the other vocal-focused Kpop groups. The Love Yourself albums were so mediocre, Idol and DNA were weak title tracks. I'm curious what they are going to come up with next, they need to drop the generic sound. I don't know if they will try to improve when armys don't care about the quality of their music and will hype anything they put out anyway though.

I went to a kpop concert this year alone(plz no roast) and while in line I was stuck talking to a saesang (I later found her social media and it checked out). She had been to every stop at the tour and apparently found out which flights the group was going to be on (through saesang sites) and booked seats for herself. She bragged about essentially harassing them in the airportLike she legitimately thought she was flirting with one of the members.

She told me about how she was passing a note to the member she harassed (said that he started it lol) and then got in trouble when the member told a flight attendant to get her to leave him alone. It was an incredibly bizarre experience. Everything she said about essentially stalking them she twisted to make it sound like the member she liked was into it. Saesangs are truly delusional. I could go on about this experience because she said so much shit that made her sound crazy and almost dangerous but kept talking to her because she was fascinating. She was also in her early 30's I believe. A big part of me thinks she made it all up, which is weirder to me for some reason. I have an easier time believing she was a saesang because kpop fans are nuts and she had crazy eyes

So let me get this straight. She paid probs several hundred dollars to stay at the Ritz in the hope of meeting JK… The crazy bitch actually made it into the same room as him (the gym) and she didn't even talk to him?

No. 296668

it makes me laugh so hard when fans criticize girl groups for having stupid or sexual dances that are all the same (which a lot of them are, don't get me wrong) but then turn around and say how complex and ~unique~ boy group dances are. boy groups have just as retarded dance routines and do just as much fan service in their dances as girl groups do. also, i think the only time i ever enjoyed a boy group covering a girls song was when seventeen does it, as they actually attempt to do it well. boy groups doing ridiculous covers of girl groups were funny the first few times, but now it's just annoying.

also, what is it with fans thinking every song needs a complex dance routine to it? and then they all want them to sing live? and make it 100% perfect every time? like there's nothing wrong with high standards, but you're going to have to choose 2 out of 3 a majority of the time–they can't sing live, have insane dance routines, and hit every note and move perfectly at the same time.

I got into kpop not too long ago, maybe a year or so, before that I just listened to the few songs my friends showed me but I decided that I wanted to see what was the hype about and learn some dances since they seemed fun, needless to say that after I discovered fancams I got pretty disappointed. Once you realize that the formula of kpop choreographies is having a group of mediocre dancers (to take advantage of the cheerleader effect) + good camera work you won't see them the same way.

And yeah, boy groups usually have harder dances but that doesn't make them any better when 1. the routines are just bad and look retarded 2. half of the members don't know how to dance (vid related at 4:22).

>the only time i ever enjoyed a boy group covering a girls song was when seventeen

agreed. they seem to take it as seriously as they take their own songs (at least from the videos I've seen) and if it's just an act at least they're being respectful, although it may have to do with the fact that they have fairly cute concepts, like adore u, pretty u or mansae and they're used to it.

And speaking of those songs. I honestly don't hate cute concepts on gg the problem is that they're so passive and boring. You can be energetic and have initiative while being cute and charming… But no, of course they have to act like clueless kids for their uncle fans, instead of doing a fun and somewhat challenging choreo while singing about how the boy you like makes you feel happy when he laughs or something like that.

Why can’t she just go with her real name? She’s done with SNSD, she’s never considered Tiffany her name and referred to herself as Stephi on IG before going solo, ugh. I get it’s what she’s known as and branding is important and yada yada but it’s just so awkward. SM just called her Tiffany because Stephanie wasn’t spechul enough.

No. 297596

Oddly enough, the name Stephanie is sounds better than Tiffany. Slightly off-topic but reading her old Xanga posts from her pre-debut days is a trip. One example:

You’d think that someone like Tiffany wouldn’t be friends with someone like Jessi at first glance. Then you look at their pre-debut posts and then see how similar the two actually are.

same, these 2 are some of their best songs. i find their pre-wings stuff enjoyable, dope, just one day, tomorrow, baepsae, cypher 2&3. their latest albums seem so rushed compared to their earlier music.

i think the video for i need u was pretty good. as i remember that video was made with a tight budget, they used their manager's car and they used the bighit staff as actors because they couldn't afford extras at that time. it's better most of the pretentious pseudo-intellectual videos they make nowadays.

Their company has so much money and yet they are always wearing the same v neck sweather and tennis skirt. It's cringe af how Kim Lip and Olivia is always singing about eclipses and being an egotist in their songs.

I'm pretty neutral towards them, but the hype confuses me. I kept hearing about how they're so unique and atypical, but when I listened to their stuff I found a lot of the songs were disjointed and didn't have a coherent melody.

Uniformed debuts are pretty common, but I'm tired of seeing them repeat colors after introducing a new one, especially if the new colors feature different cuts for the members. It must be confusing as fuck for the general audience, too, because Olivia, Hyunjin, and to a lesser extent, Choerry, are easily mixed up in a group of 12 girls dressed identically. I dunno why they're not using their individual colors to familiarize each girl, like Red Velvet and Oh My Girl did.

With the amount of fillers getting pumped into them, the girls all look mighty tight and swollen. Yves is hot as fuck, but they need to let her chin settle or something.

For the best interest of my music enjoyability, I hope they have a healthy run, but I can easily imagine them unable to make back their investment and disbanding or amassing a BTS-rivalling insane fandom to their detriment.

What the hell is this? Seems to be a China boy group under JYP, with kids reeeeally young, from 11 to 14. The teasers and images are so grown up and make me uncomfortable, like they make the little kids stare at the camera like regular idols. And they use makeup on them and stuff, but the worst is the comments. I haven't seen anything straight pedo but they are already fangirling about small kids and I can just image 20 year old women on the other side of the keyword.

i can maybe understand viewing them as more of a younger brother/son type, but it's still strange to fangirl over an actual child. i can't even think of a western equivalent to this…yes there are child performers, but they're pretty much strictly marketed to kids and never portrayed in such a strangely adult way like this

Are you new to kpop? The moment these kids grow a few inches you'll see their "noonas" screaming "the disrespect!! why you so handsome now" etc, they will sexualize them the second they look "old enough" for them. And try to hide it behind the "proud mom" excuse. It's disgusting.

also, jyp can release as much music and shit that he wants but he won't distract me from the fact that he is supposed to do a press conference about the religious cult that he apparently is a part of. apparently it's going to be held this month, september, but it's almost half way through the month and there hasn't been any report on whether he's going to hold it or not.

It's seriousy embarrassing that they don't learn English. There are other non-native speakers working in the american entertainment industry (something bts are clearly interested in as well) and they all put in the effort to at least learn the language.

Hey general question for kpop fans/ex-fans. Why is it every time a group releases new material its called a comeback and subsequent performances are called a "comeback stage" when usually they aren't coming back from anything. I mean they are still around doing tv or concerts during that time. they never went away so to speak. When I think of a comeback, I think of an artist that's been out of the public eye or is dwindling in popularity for some time. Is that kpop's way if acknowledging their artists are totally forgettable?

I figured it's due to the constant spew of content going through the kpop streams. There are some groups who have 3 comebacks a year, which is why BP fans freak when coming back after two years or several is considered normal in the US.

So to answer your question: Yes, Kpop groups are very much forgettable. The use of the world comeback is to get fans or fans who've moved on to other groups hyped.

No. 297921

Their fans seriously bask in BTS' nationalism. I'm not saying don't be proud of your country, but if you're actively going to American talk shows and interviews, and promoting there, at least make the effort to learn English. Like deadass, BTS have made full albums in Japanese, you can't tell me they can't make the effort to bust out some fully refined English. At this point, it makes me think that the BigHit ceo, Bang Penis, may be a full blown supporter of Japanese neo-nazis. RE: Holocaust memorial + having BTS collab with a neo-nazi.

I wish American TV shows would stop babying them as well.

No. 297926

To be fair they don't speak japanese on japanese talk shows/interviews either, and if they do it's on par with what the stuff they say in english interviews. The only group/solo artist I know that are actually fluent are DBSK and Boa, maybe KARA too, and they had to do that because back then they weren't trying to make it as "Kpop artists" but as Jpop artist. They also regularly work with Japanese producers whereas your average Kpop group just awkwardly translates their korean songs into japanese.
Kpop is a niche genre there now, just how it is in the west, and the people that buy their music know this and don't care. It's like how your average weeb doesn't want a dub for their anime, as long as there's subs they'll buy it. It's almost part of the product, so to say.
This entire western promo is just promo for BTS in Korea essentially, as it's always been. When BTS were fucking nobodies in Korea they had a bigger fandom in the west and used that fact to media play in Korea, which gave them the clout to become what they are today.
Seeing Koreans get triggered by BigHit wanting to collaborate with a supposed Japanese right-winger and responding with almost as equally cancerous nationalism was pretty funny ngl. The irony.

No. 297928

I don’t care for BTS interviews outside of Korea but they’re actually being coddled as much as you claim they are, that’s really embarrassing. I’m sure any mentions of hooking up will have their fangirls ditching them, but how can they expect to advance further when only one member out of seven can hold a conversation in English? They love that American clout but it sounds like they aren’t really trying that hard to adapt. They’ll always be seen as an East Asian novelty to the Western public and that’s one of the reasons why.

No. 297931

Why bother learning a language and social norms if you can rely on your batshit fandom to carry you and rake in money anyway? Why should news outlets bother with risky questions that might get them on BigHit's no-go list if they still get clicks with BTS answering the same "what's your favorite thing to eat in XY?"-type of questions every time? Why would fans want their oppars to answer questions that could possibly shatter their perception of them?

Amber’s more butch and toned than 80% of male K-pop idols. Not even saying that’s a bad thing because she seems more physically healthy compared to the skellys prancing around nowadays.

that’s victoria

anyway even if she’s closeted she’s been doing a lot of girl crush shit since the beginning and even used to have fangirls calling her oppa instead of unnie (which must’ve sucked ass) so she’s already associated with the whole ~lesbian luvurr~ fantasy. maybe i’m naïve but i fail to see how anyone would be shocked by her coming out, homophobic social climate or not.

Another idol that I think could just come out already is Jo Kwon. He’s so flamboyantly gay that anyone can sense it from a mile away. I’m definitely making asssumptions here but his love for dressing up in drag, highly campy mannerisms/personality, him getting caught at a gay club, and same-sex dating rumors make it hard to believe he’s 100% hetero. No one would be surprised by him coming out. I don’t think the backlash would be too bad either because his group (2AM) is also dead and the South Korean public seems to have accepted his persona by this point.

i wonder if she gets sick a lot or has a hard time performing? i remember when i was supo waifish that i had no energy at all, even going up the stairs had me struggling to breathe. she probably gets a ton of IV drips too considering a lot of idols practically live off of them. apologies for semi-blogpost.

Korean Christians are fucking insane whether or not they have lived in America or if they’ve never spoken a word of English in their lives. There are SO many cults, and even ones that aren’t technically cults act culty by trying to trick people into joining and trying to take over their lives. They bring that crazy hierarchical, follow the leader bullshit into everything they do. There are so many groups walking the streets going up to people like “do you know our holy mother?” Reading off of cue cards because they can’t actually speak English, trying to get your money and info. My Christian friend literally stopped going to church while she lived in Korea because the way they do things made her so uncomfortable. Yes they try to influence politics. Yes they are dangerous.


My friend was here when these assholes ruined a queer festival in incheon and got violent

No, Christianity is not as big there as in the west and homophobia there isn’t religion-based, but they have their own special fucked up way of doing things. And yeah some younger Koreans might be more okay with homosexuality but don’t let that fool you - many young people openly told me they thought it was a disease and that gays are depraved (mostly just gay men) and there is really not much of an opportunity to come out of the closet if you want to live a normal life. There are no anti-discrimination laws.

And yeah blah blah blah this isn’t a korean culture thread, but so much wrong information gets passed on through the kpop fandom. Saying amber is somehow more closeted because she’s American is insane. There are SO MANY closeted idols who have never left their country except to do concerts in Japan or whatever. People see small steps being taken by idols saying supportive or at least non homophobic things and thing that represents the rest of the country… it doesn’t.

On a side note, I have a question, I don't even know if it makes any sense but here I go:
Female idols are skinny, but why is that older girl groups during their peeks looked really skinny for real while nowadays, girl groups, albeit skinny, look really flabby? Like, compare their legs to SNSD gee era, or BEG abracadabra era, or KARA from the same time… I don't know how to put this, but it seems like they were more "dry" body wise, no extra fat, no flab on the legs, while nowadays everyone looks kinda flabby. Is it because they're just starving and adhering to carboxy shots with no exercise (besides the training)?

No. 298687

Many Koreans want to be skinny without showing any muscle definition, to the extent of regular korean women avoiding lifting heavy things at home or at work.

There are injections to “melt” the muscle and they probably try to lose weight in ways that will not increase muscle mass.

No. 298694

older girl groups were so much hotter because of this. they also seemed more confident and charismatic which helped. all the “girl crush” groups today are so try hard when old groups did that without even intending to

No. 298697

I think it has to do with color grading from official shows and fancams that make idols paler but to the detriment of making muscle tone disappear. Also the high-waisted bottom with cropped tops that's everywhere highlights the wider parts of the torso compared to the low/midrise of the 2000s.

There's a few idols I think who are still comparable to the lean and cut figures of peak SNSD and 9muses, but they all happened to be darker and prefer lower rise bottoms.

But it just might be that the 2000s Western hyperskinny trend also impacted Kpop, and there's surgical treatments that don't improve muscle tone, as you pointed out.

Yeah and even if they ‘win’ some food prize or whatever on a tv show, its not like you see them eat eating full servings. They either get one piece of something or take a few bites and sperg about how its the best damn thing they’ve tasted while it cuts away to the next part of the show.

I love seeing kpop stans cream themselves over darker skin toned idols and praise them for being ~beautiful and confident in their natural skin tone~ who obviously tan their skin to look like that in the first place out of their own preference.

No. 298796

yeah it may kind of be rewarding, but there's a huge chance that they probably throw it up the minute they get off set. bulimia and the sorts is rampant in such beauty-focused industries, especially when you have idols that say shit like "i didn't even eat ice cubes bc i thought i would gain weight" or "i only eat one chicken breast a day." to them it doesn't matter if it's rewarding or delicious after a day of starving–it gets in the way of their diet restrictions.

i'm not discrediting you though, i'm sure there are a ton of idols too who consider it rewarding and don't throw it up along with having normal diets, but i've just heard way too many american stories about celebrities having staff and stuff sneak bottles of water and towels for them and such, so i can only imagine the korean celebrities.

this too, it's so funny when fans overreact and say how much they love to eat and "see!! they're totally healthy" because they took a small bite or two.

I was talking to a Korean gym bro and he was genuinely shocked that I own protein powder and a shaker bottle. Like jaw to the floor completely astounded that I even knew what protein powder was.

The reason Korean a lot of women are skinny isn't because they're thin naturally or "diet." They don't intake enough protein and many of them live off of those 5 calorie jelly drinks at the convenience stores. They're just skinnyfat or skeletal.

Here, drink this meal replacement protein shake! It's got 80 calories per scooop, and 5g protein! So healthy, Wendy is supporting it! Be an ~idol~ like her!

Idols do push an unhealthy agenda because of their producers, it's just all controlled by the manufacturers of products and the media.

No. 299053

I swear, Healthy dieting does not exist in Korea. Everything is so extreme, even guys I knew who wanted to lose weight went straight to the go-to diet of eating only one meal per day. No amount of talking about sustainability or suggesting more fruits/veggies instead of meat and alcohol worked. That’s what a diet means to them, just not eating, or eating only a chicken breast for lunch and boiled eggs for dinner, and as much beer as they want. So when I hear of Bts members saying that’s all they ate for a comeback I’m not surprised at all since regular korean guys do the same thing too.

he should really work out aside from his dance routines, even just a little bit it would do him wonders. i think everyone could benefit from at least minimally working out; blogpost but i've started working out more recently and it's done wonders. that's the big issue with korean "dieting," they just starve themselves and omit any protein from their diets and they just end up looking flabby and flat rather than slim and toned. also i'm sure Vs diet is absolutely terrible which is probably also another reason he's been looking worse as he gets older; his young looks aren't going to stay forever with a diet of excessive alcohol.

I feel like so many people get considered attractive just because they fit the checklist of the korean beauty standards. For guys it’s even easier. Pale? Check. “Big” nose? Check. Skinny? Check. Eyes not really that big but bigger than the average korean? Check. Not really that tall but taller than the average korean? Check. Congratulations! You’re #1 worldwide handsome!!! Doesn’t matter how ugly you actually are as long as you check off the list.

The list is longer for women but it’s the same, all they have to do is get plastic surgery to fit the checklist and bam they are beautiful, no matter how alien and weird they look now.

And then so many actually attractive people get considered ugly because they dare to not check off every item on the list by having small eyes, tan skin, a flat nose, or some meat on their bones.

Cool, it's your opinion. By Jin carrying himself well I didn't mean it as a performer.

Out of everyone in BTS, I think Jin is the one who fits that position. Jin has been keeping up with that persona since their debut, and they completely changed V's 4D persona to the art hoe persona.

So Lisa went on a variety show called “Real men” and had a physical examination done. She’s actually as skelly as she says she is on her profile. My male friend who’s into BlackPink shared that with me.

jungkook always has a shit ton of marks and scratches on him. anytime i see pics with his legs exposed he has a shit ton of bruises and scratches on them, and then there was that one injury on both sides of his arm. does he do something in his free time that warrants this? i can’t imagine falling while dancing and shit does all of that.

I remember ARMY went out of their way to discredit this pic and tell everyone it was Photoshop and that JK was fine, but if their offical Twitter has even more pics with the marks then I guess it's real.

Honestly I feel bad for him, his parents pretty much forced him to the idol life at like 13. You can tell that shit really effected him, even he realizes it to some extent by talking about how he stopped aging mentally at 15, which is typically a sign of some type of trauma.
On top of that he grew up having to be hyperconscious of how people viewed him, along with typical teenage shit, like wanting validation of your peers and to learn to be comfortable with who you are.
He openly stated that he couldn't wear the clothes he wants, get the piercings he wants or anything like that because he was scared the fans won't like it, so for awhile at least the way Korea's public saw definitely effected him.
I wouldn't be surprised if he actually was cutting himself at one point.

I feel bad for Jungkook more than the other members. Sure he’s the most popular and that comes with its perks, but he was basically robbed from a chance to grow up normally since he was a teen.

i can buy that it might just be from playing the "wrist hitting game", but totally agree with you - how is being concerned about a celebrity you look up to possibly self-harming considered being 'a hater'?? do fans just not want to face any sort of possibility that their idol isnt living a perfect amazing life so they can buy all their albums and merch and go to their concerts without feeling guilty for funding the industry that puts them into these difficult lifestyles?

During a press conference on September 17 prior to the group’s comeback with their mini album “WJ PLEASE?” Luda elaborated on what she said about payments on MBC’s Dunia.

She said, “Because it’s a variety show, there’s definitely a part that was jokingly exaggerated. It is true that we haven’t been paid yet. Working since debut, there’s a lot that we’ve learned hands-on. I believe that there are so many things that are more important than [something like payment]. But as hard as we’ve worked on this album, we’re thinking we might be hearing some good news. We want to receive a lot of love from the fans.”

EXY added that “rather than chasing money, we’re working hard and moving up step by step, realizing how special each performance is. We believe that the day will come when we earn a lot and can take care of our parents. We’re not in a hurry.”"

keep in mind though that when a lot of idols talk about not being paid they have free accommodation, free food, free clothes etc as well as what goes to paying off debts and what goes straight back into funding promotions. it's more like they earn absolute minimum wage but the money doesn't actually go to them and goes straight to buying things and paying rent for them. it's still a grim look at idol life for most groups, but it's not like working a regular job and not getting paid where you're not getting free clothes and skincare all the time

what is it with someone always coming in saying they don't feel bad when one person just so happens to slightly comment that they care? if the idol was 18 or older when they signed the contract, that's understandable, but when they're under 18? most of them don't realize the implications of the industry or what it's truly like or may have stage parents that pushed them into it very young. majority of these idols started as trainees as young as 9 or 10 and were clearly taken advantage of; do you not find that slightly disturbing? you say they can "always quit," but can they really? sure, maybe they could, but not without their entire reputation on the line and possibly being blackballed by their company. there's also the legal issues with exiting a contract early and also letting down your fellow team mates.

It’s not like a situation with a celebrity being torn to shreds by millions of strangers; he has no critics, he’s adored by his fans and is filthy rich. He’s probably doing it for attention because all he knows is people babying him.

I see, just like you are doing now?

Well no, but they're in debt to the company for the years of training. It's not ideal, but it's not because of nothing. Everyone agrees it's a shitty system, but that's what happens when you're an idol. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, I dunno a ton about this subject.

I think he'd look heaps better with natural styling. He's not well-suited to the flower boy look.

I don't understand kpop fashion. How is this attractive?

No. 299392


kek, but i thought kpop stans said the big 3 have an "agreement" not to take in each others artists? what is it with kpop fans and trying to police how kpop apparently works?

i gave her the benefit of the doubt thinking she actually wanted to become an established english artist, but i see the preview and its literally SM shit
will it even be in english lyrics? is she just planning on releasing kpop shit here because if so, i have no reason to really bother supporting her even though i was kinda hype t first

i loved 9muses and after school
shame both groups were such a fail company wise they both had all the potential in the world but the constant member rotation is NEVER good idea

No. 299401

I thought it was true too tbh. but jyp made some vague post that makes it sound like she got kicked for breaking some rule. jyp and yg ent both seem close so I doubt yg would take her if jyp cared.

Is Somi gonna try going solo? Not familiar with The Black Label aside from people saying it's totally~ discrete from YGE because it's a subsidiary.

Also, I'm still hoping she left for the bizarre reason of JYP's cult connections for the drama.

Self harm isn’t an indicator of how hard your life is. It’s a symptom of the inability to cope. That can go for anyone.

No. 299445

maybe i'm remembering incorrectly, but 9muses wasn't originally supposed to be a member rotated group? i think it just ended up that way because members kept leaving due to the shitty company and star empire had to upkeep the 9muses name and keep it nine members lmaoo

No. 299446

Group names that have numbers in them are never a good idea. It makes things awkward when the number of members decrease/increase. They're also confusing (like how 4minute had five members when they were active).

No. 299447

originally it wasnt but it basically became every time some left, more would be added so even though it wasnt SUPPOSED to be, its what it ended up as

No. 299448

yeah that's what i meant. it was kind of ridiculous tbh. i'd tune in to them once every comeback and i'd see a new face or two. it really hurt them in the long run and i'm pretty sure that along with their terrible company led to their demise. the songs were good but they lacked the attachment quality that kpop fans seek.

No. 299482

I think RM's case is kinda interesting. He was a 1% student nationwide. If I was a 1% student in high school my parents wouldn't be so happy about me trying to be a rapper in an unpopular record label lol. He probably doesn't have regrets now but I wonder what it was like when they weren't as big

there are people who bruise super easily, i have a friend like that and she always gets bruises from the smallest things. he may be one of those people

he turned down a fencing scholarship from Stanford

No. 299573

kpop fans kept making it out like he was going to the olympics or smth. he probably wouldn’t of ended up being able to do as much as a fencer than he did a kpop star so who knows. he’s also another idol that needs to stop with plastic surgery; he looked fine before.
