If we aren’t going to separate the threads then stfu and stop baiting about it. Ignore it and continue talking about whatever interests you. Split the threads or shut up.

Anyways, what are your guys thoughts on momoland? Apparently Nancy is problematic? They added two more members after debut. Their only successful song is bboom bboom. Baam apparently flopped and was criticized for being the exact same song as bboom bboom. Joo E is frequently called the ugliest idol, lol. She looked way cuter in her selfies before their debut and everyone was surprised at her appearance. Idk they’re a mess it seems.
I don’t see them lasting very long in this industry tbh. Also, nit pick but Nancy’s fake baby voice act annoys the living shit out of me.

No. 310344

I would love to shit on lesser known groups, just because I have a weird fascination for them. Too bad there's not much milk on them, but I still like to cringe at the videos. This group laysha is the most "gangnam unnie" I've ever seen.

I hate the sexy/cute thing so much. They are dressed so slutty but still acting like little girls.

>>310333
I kind of liked Bboom Bboom as a meme song (but hated the rap part). Them releasing Baam was so shitty lol it was like basically the same song, and in the same year! God forbid a group has a hit song, after that the company just pumps the same shit over and over.

This Hyuna/E-dawn thing is going to give me an aneurysm.

International fans are creaming themselves over this "power couple", they stan an "unbothered queen"! Oh, and apparently Hyuna was carrying Cube single-handedly, it's only a matter of time before they crash and burn without her and she can totally go make her own company, cause that's not at all a hard thing to do. Right.

I agree that the idol dating ban is idiotic, but it exists for a reason and if you don't want any part of it then don't sign the fucking contract! Hyuna's been with Cube long enough that she must have re-signed one or two times by now, she knows what she was signing and chose to not only go against it, but also go against her company's PR decision to deny the allegations like every other company does when there's a dating scandal. Now she has no company and may have played a role in ruining the careers of 9 rookies (10, if E-Dawn doesn't manage to sponge off of her influence).

Well, I hope she's really as unbothered as she's trying to seem cause E-Dawn looks fucking miserable.

btw he's losing his hair and the color is awful.

the amount of i-fans who don't even try to understand the situation and continue to shit on korean fans is unbelievable, so much for being woke and accepting. hyuna seriously fucked up his career, they keep saying everything was agreed on and he discussed this decision with other pentagon members, but it sure doesn't seem like it. why tf was it even necessary to come out and make a big scandal, idgi. maybe she did it to spite the management of the company because they refused to do things the way she wanted

wasn't Momoland formed through a survival show? seems weird to add two members after that. It was really lazy to release an identical song to boom boom but I kinda like baam better tbh. It didn't do as well as boom boom did so they'll probably switch to another trend.

>>310346
she probably is unbothered since she's been in the industry since forever and could probably live comfortably. also none of her stans want to point out how weird it is for her to get involved with some trainee when she was such an important figure at cube as they say. that being said I don't think she manipulated him or anything. he probably wouldn't have bounced back from a scandal like that anyways so he might as well stick with her.

People always assume it's the girlfriend's fault when shit like this happens (the Yoko effect), so I don't want to make assumptions. I just can't see how admitting it benefited E-Dawn or Pentagon at all. So, you think it wouldn't have made a difference if they denied it?

No. 310371

>>310369
well yeah I think they should've kept quiet after cube denied it the first time. but after they announced it on Instagram there wouldn't be a point in staying especially after cube tried to kick them out. Maybe they thought cube would go easy on them or something. Pentagon definitely got the short end of the stick though.

In any case, it'll be interesting to see what happens to both of their careers from here. I kind of feel like both of them will fade into obscurity, but who knows, they might work something out. Either that or they may break up and Hyuna will carry on, E-dawn will fade away.

For the most part it refers to girls who have had too much plastic surgery, usually a number of the same procedures which leaves them all looking very similar to each other. The name come from a high-class/rick area in Korea where (supposedly) you see these kinds of women often. I guess like the same way LA has a lot of plastic look people there too around the Hollywood area (or so I've heard).

Am i the only one who cant blame cube for not wanting their relationship outed? Because with how long some relationships last you cant even be certain that they’re going to be together in the long run. And its not just two random idols dating, they were in the same group ffs. Could you imagine what their image would be after they broke up? They’d be a literal joke group with the members who are ex’s.

You’ve gotta milk these groups as much as you can, and you cant blame the higher ups for not wanting anything to interfere with the cash flow.

Sometimes she was styled nicely and it worked for her, such as the Bubble Pop era, I My Me Mine, and Volume Up. Other than that shes really gross and its only gotten worse with all the surgery and the shitty hair that makes her look like a trailer trash crack hoe most of the time.

Hyuna’s image is supposed to be some trashy, bold vixen but her off-stage mannerisms and natural looks really don’t suit what she’s going for. She naturally reminds me of a chipmunk yet is styled and packaged as a blow-up doll. It’s really weird.

Also I agree with others on how her and E’Dawn straight up look like crackheads. Hyuna in particular neither looks cute (like in her debut days) nor sexy (like in her Bubble Pop days). She straight up looks spoopy now.

Cube is clearly trying to turn G-Idle’s Soyeon into the next Hyuna. You have her rapping in the same weird chipmunk voice and hogging stage time in the center. I find the others members to be way more interesting yet the company tries so hard to meme her into being their next golden child.

Thank god I'm not the only one who thinks Hyuna is ugly as fuck. I don't see what's so empowering about her slutty image either. What's confusing though is that Koreans do like her, but why?

there’s always going to be people who like someone controversial just for doing what they want and not caring about what people say, even when it’s obvipus they do. until recently hyuna’s fans still insisted “nooo the sexy stuff is just an image, she’s actually really cute!”. the praise she’s getting right now makes it seem like she made a statement on her instagram saying she’s happy in this relationship, isn’t an artist who should be held to dating bans etc. but all she’s actually done is post pictures where her boyfriend doesn’t look interested and she’s trying to prove how carefree she is.

Laysha, Bambino, and similar groups are "dance groups" and aren't promoted like idols cause they aren't. They do primarily covers (with an occasional original song for more popular ones) at club venues and will do physical interactions like lap dances. Not saying idol industry doesn't have '''sponsorships''', but dance groups and idol groups are largely independent of each other.

Also, "Oppa is Trash" is my favorite of those terrible sounding but weirdly endearing, super-low budget songs. Mostly for all the trash shots.

It's so clear on his face this whole scandal took a toll on his mind and health. Hyuna will recover from this but he never will. His group is destroyed, his career is gone before it even started, he's probably still in debt to Cube, all because he really wanted to stick his skinny penis in the older skank.

Wasn't Hyuna rumored to join AOMG? Jay Park's agency? Would be funny if both her and Edawn join her Ex's agency. The irony.

Edawn will probably go into producing for other idols. His idol career is dead unless Hyuna feels like forming a duo with him, which would effectively mean he can never break up with her and keep his career.

And I don't get the whole "she looks expensive" stan catchphrase when basically every idol is styled the same, she just wears a bit more chanel than the others, groundbreaking.

Fans are really trying to push the narrative Lisa does all of this because she is oh so kind. Look at this comment:
"As someone who is watching BP vids most of the time, Jisoo and Jennie usually orders Lisa around. Lisa does their household chores especially washing the dishes. Jisoo even JOKED that it's only every Lisa's birthday that she doesn't do the dishes. During a radio show, the members said Lisa pays for their food when they get delivery. I think Lisa is just that type of person. No need to make a big deal out of it."
I really don't think Lisa is doing all this just because she is kind. Maybe if the rest of the BP members weren't such bitches they would actually stand up and do something to help her, or offer to pay.

Hasuel is genuinely one of Loona's best looking and most unique faces. I just hope they don't fuck up her looks with PS (or even more PS) or shitty styling which they do all the fucking time. Not only that, she's pretty great at singing, but dancing not so much. Then again, KPOP groups never focus on strengths, only ever on visuals and local and intl appeal.

As for Vivi, she's not only untalented but looks uncanny. How tf did she get in the group?

Vivi, Hyunjin, Yeojin, Cheorry, Gowon, and Olivia are the members I dismiss bc they don't really offer anything to the group.

Maybe the case for Lisa is more because she's a foreigner but I feel like despite their "the cute innocent baby of the group" image, maknaes get treated like shit a lot by their bandmates and it disturbs me. Not that being 20 years older than someone excuses treating them horribly but most of the time these group members dont't even have a huge age gap, it's 3-5 years at most.

I don't understand how Kim Lip ended up taking over the leader position, alhtough I do admit Loona was flopping before Eclipse and before they moved on to more EDM sounding songs.
Maybe it's just me but Kim Lip really gives off the iljin vibe.
Oh, and now Haseul is basically stuck babysitting for Yeojin who is nothing but a deadweight to the group, which can't move towards more mature concepts because they have a 15 year old in among them.
>>311133
Besides her being the maknae, is obvious Korean people are racist agains SEAs, so just imagine that. I think they can get away as just friendly banter by blocking her in pics and calling her a witch while streaming because it's obvious Lisa can't do anything against it. It's just a person making shitty jokes and another person unable to do anything about it.

LOONA's situation with Haseul and Yeojin sounds similar to Red Velvet's with Irene and Yeri. There's a ten year-age gap between Irene and Yeri, and I think Yeri's addition to the group made them stray further away from more mature concepts in the future. Yeri also adds nothing to the group in all areas with the exception of variety–and that's only in comparison to Seulgi and Irene who are way too shy in comedic settings.

To add on, I also get an iljin vibe from Kim Lip. She's not ugly but it's just something about her face that makes it seems like she'd easily beat up people. She's also another unfortunate victim of unneeded plastic surgery in that she looked fine without double eyelids and a nosejob.

Yeri is the classic case of paid her way into the group. Red Velvet would be just fine without her addition. I'm glad they were able to keep their Velvet side, but Irene does seem pissed about it, if you ask me.
And I don't know what you are talking about with Yeri being good at varieties, tho. She seems to be moving into a luxuorious image, so she has been over the top with the bitchy and silent image.
Lucky enough for them, Yeri doesn't seem too fond of the childish image like Yeojin does so she is able to pretend she is mature.

It's not about whether they give a fuck about an underage girl doing sexy dances, it's just that she doesn't fit the concept. If they do move towards a sexy concept, she will look out of place. She already looked out of place in favOrite and it even wasn't all that.

Idk I think you guys are being too sensitive about the lisa thing. The girls have lived together for more than 5 years and the way they treat each other seems natural of friends that are around each other 24/7. Maybe I’m just in denial from watching Blackpink tv all day on YouTube today but they really all seem to care for each other. Sometimes friends pick on each other and get a bit annoyed, it’s normal. I do notice even in the show that Jennie is very stand offish of Jisoo and Lisa and she seems closer to rose but other than that they all seem to get along.

I think Jennie gives off a certain vibe that makes her seem rude or unapproachable but the more you watch her you can see that’s not the case. I actually really like Lisa and I don’t feel the members treat her bad at all.

I get the theory about them thinking they’re better due to Lisa being SEA but let’s face it, she speaks perfect Korean and is the best performer and dancer in the group. They Can’t be blind to that fact. Plus Lisa doesn’t even look SEA anymore after those glutathione injections and nose job lol, pic related.

Seems like a lot of anons are failing to be objective about this. They are two adults in a relationship, who cares, the criticism should be that they have had to face discrimination and lose their jobs because of this, all because idols have to appear available sexually to fans, like buying their cd means fans think they can buy their celibacy.

Are these musicians and dancers, or are they sex workers, like what does their relationship status have to do with their singing?

She could keep her relationship in secret and continue her career without scandals, but she made her own choice. You can't have your cake and eat it in this case.

K-pop really just keeps up with whatever the trend is. Fans think male idols wearing feminine clothing and accesories makes them feminist unbothered legends. They use the flower boy look to appeal to people who get drawn to woke agendas since being fake woke is the trend nowadays.
I also noticed that especially boy groups are wearing bondage harnesses and belts often recently, it's probably the stylists trying to keep up with the BDSM imagery trend.

No. 311443

>>311426
Yeah the stylists are just following trends and what teenagers are into at the moment but I'm not just talking about the chokers and flower crowns or styling, I'm talking about their bodies and physical features too.
For example, compare the top visuals of the last gen: Siwon, Taecyon, TOP to the top visuals of this gen according to local Korean ranking AND international: V, Kang Daniel, Taeyong, and Jimin I guess

They went from tanned, tall, muscular, masculine facial features, kinda rugged(as rugged as an idol can be I guess) to short, skinny, pale bodies(minus V) with feminine facial features and behavior.

Was there a demographic shift or something?

I'm sure it had started since the 1st gen of Kpop but it wasn't a trend back then. Moon Hee Joon of H.O.T would be a good example for this, but he was so crappy-looking (and still are lol) that his fans probably only liked him for his voice.

Then came along Jae Joong of TVXQ with his style, which was very notable back then because of him being the only (?) femininized guy in the Kpop scene. That being said, his body was nicely built for a man so he wasn't on BTS level of feminine.

Fast forward to 2011, I'd say Boyfriend (and maybe some other groups that debuted in the era) made the trend popular again. They didn't wear so much makeup, but their figures are less built than their predecessors in the Kpop scene. Not to mention the twins who were assigned to looking more feminine than the rest of the members by their agency.

Then it just got worse since then, with the peak reached in 2013 I think? I'd choose any boy group before that over BTS and the likes lol.

So Hanteo has admitted to fabricating its charts to make sales from China count less than sales from Korea. They posted an apology, but they only posted it in Korean at first, meaning Chinese netizens are now furious at the rudeness of not only faking chart results to bias Korean sales but then not even bothering to hire a translator for the apology (they have now had to post an apology in Chinese after the backlash).

Most of this manipulation affected EXO sales, so as expected, ARMY are throwing tantrums.

Honestly, that was the thing that put me off of k-pop. Even when I haven't heard any k-pop songs or didn't know anything about the groups, I knew k-pop fans were psychotic, it was all over the internet. I was seeing k-pop everywhere but I didn't really want to check it out because of the terrible impression I got from the fans. When I heard some k-pop songs, I actually enjoyed them and I got into some groups. I started to look into the fandom, there was always some cringy stupid shit happening in k-pop stan twitter and the k-pop communities in other social medias weren't any better. It's completely understandable how the k-pop fans give their faves a bad reputation, they make them look like terrible role models to outsiders. Armys want people to see BTS as something more than "a generic pop group with a batshit insane fanbase" but they aren't really helping with it at all, they are the reason why they have such a ruined reputation in the first place.

I care about my favorite group's sales (not to the point of buying thirty albums or accusing any other artist charting better of cheating), only because they're a mid-tier group whose next comebacks hinge on charting at all.

I don't understand kpop at all.. or I should say it's popularity. Especially recently, since kpop now seems to be blowing up even more, to the point I even have to see kpop fans everywhere irl and not just the internet. I really wanna understand what's good about it. Because to me it's so generic and copy paste. Like every group seems to do the same music just slightly different.. it's basically western music just in a different language too and nothing unique.. and the fact that all of the kpop group members are plastic surgery copy paste versions of another is just another reason for me to stay away. Like I guess my main question is, why people like something that got had all it's authenticity sucked out of it to become literal singing/dancing robots or dolls.. Like what's the fun in that?
Not even gonna start on the really questionable practices of all the big kpop agencies and the industry as a whole. If anything I just feel bad for all kpop idols who basically sell their lives and souls for money and fame. For what? As soon as they are too "old" at mid/late 20 they gonna get dropped and replaced anyway.

I'm not saying jpop is perfect by all means but IMO if I want something more authentic, at least less westernized I will go for jpop before kpop. I wonder if jpop was as easy to find on the inet like youtube etc.. if it could be able to also become more popular. And if not, what it is on kpop especially that grabs peoples interest and makes them literally obsessed about it.

No kboo, but Jpop is so much worse about pedobait, perversion, and creepy, possesive fans that it isn't even funny and there are no male J idols that don't look like busted prostitutes. The accessibility had almost nothing to do with Jpop never amounting to anything outside of Japan. No appeal to non weebs or non Japanese nationalists.

Outside of a handful of groups, idols aren’t mainstream in Japan. Even AKB hasn’t been legitimately relevant to the GP in years outside of a few scandals. Soloists and groups are want’s popular, not that Kpop fans would know that since they seem to be allergic any act that isn’t a group. What’s with that anyway?

is delaying your enlistment until you are 30 still a thing? i wonder if all of the bts members are going to enlist one by one when they hit 30 or volunteer to enlist together in one group or 2 groups. if they go one by one, they will not be 7 for like 7-8 years, if they volunteer, they'll be gone for only 2 or 4 years. it would be a waste for jimin, v and jk to enlist early though, they are still going to be pretty young by the time jin is 30. i don't think south koreans will be okay with bts being exempted from military so yeah, it's probably just all talk. them being gone for several years because of enlistments is most likely going to be the death of their hype, so we'll see what's going to happen.

Which is exactly why their company has announced they're not accepting any exemption.

afaik olympic medalists do get an exemption from military enlistment and that's probably part of the reason why armys care about the awards and records so much, they defend that "bts has helped with south korea's economy more than anyone else so they deserve a pass" or "their achievements are equal to getting a medal in the olympics". if bts wins a grammy, i'm sure they'll try to use it as an excuse for military exemption

Nah, even if they'd be granted exemption I highly doubt they'd actually not go. Athletic records and sports in general are respected by all ages and sexes, therefore an olympic medalist not enlisting won't face as much scrutiny as a kpop idol, something that's only really worshipped by little girls. Koreans are boasting with BTS's international achievements right now because it's not threatening their existing social norms, but I bet you, as soon as there'd be new discussion about exemption enraged men will flock to the comment sections LOL A clean enlistment is a much more sound business decision for them (and any male idol, really).

No. 312862

>>312852
But it was government officials who started the whole "idols getting exemption" thing, not armys or fans of any group. Afaik all fans are aware it would be social suicide to not enlist
Koreans already hate how celebrities (not just idols) get special treatment in the military, to give them an exemption would be a very terrible idea.

No. 312870

i agree, i didn't mean to say that bts deserves to get an exemption. bts being in billboard's hot 100 is nowhere equal to getting a medal in the olympics, which is as you said, something that everyone respects. i don't think south koreans would be okay with it. if they did get an exemption and chose not to go, they would get a huge backlash and probably wouldn't even be able to go out anymore.

>>312862
i might be wrong but wasn't that man who talked about bts getting an exemption a politician who was trying to appeal to the younger generation for votes? i know that most of the south koreans who don't care about kpop idols wouldn't react to it positively but i see international kpop fans talking about their faves getting an exemption a lot, they get happy at any news that might be a chance for idols not enlisting.

iirc a Dispatch article talked about artists tabloids can't catch dirt on and BTS was one of them. It said something about how whenever they go out they're together or going to restaurants and gaming places, which makes it hard for journalists to catch them doing something shady.
But I remember watching a clip of some show where Heechul investigates dating scandals and he had an interview with a journalist who said sometimes big companies will bribe a journalist with dirt on other companies in exchange of never writing about their own company for a specific period of time.

Your parents will just be more upset. Ten times more upset than they are now.

Although the recording captures him saying this, the CEO just came out with a public apology basically saying he had no idea any abuse was going on.

>>312967
They've been abused since 2015. The leader is only 18, so assuming he's the oldest, other members were being beaten by a grown man when they were only 12-13. Even if they have the physical power now, there's way too much psychological trauma to fight back.

It looks like he's trying to blame armies reporting for a shutdown, though his channel is pretty obviously still up and just privated or something. You can still see his playlists if you search for his channel, you just get a notice that they're private if you click. If you try to watch his videos from other people's playlists, you get told they're unavailable instead of getting a notice that the account/video has been terminated or deleted.

I don't know what he's trying to go for here, but it looks to me like he was trying to trigger armies MILDLY for twitter interaction but it went too far for him. While armies are definitely crazy and toxic, this guy and his crying video/bahleeting are laughable as well.

No one would bother saying that all of BTS' music sounds the same if armies weren't willing to try to destroy that person over it. BTS is only even mildly relevant because of their batshit fanbase, and people only ever mention BTS to try and gain something from that same batshit fanbase. He's a vlogger, so my guess is we'll be seeing a BTS SHUT DOWN MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL?! NOT CLICKBAIT! That aside though, he was being really nice about it at first and even said he liked their older music and he thinks they're talented but lately things started sounding same-y.

I just found this
>4minute's HyunA and Sohyun recently confessed that their height measurements written on their online profiles exaggerate their actual height. According to the producer of E Channel's "4minute's Mr. Teacher", HyunA revealed, "Sohyun and I have a difference in height of 4 cm." HyunA's height on her internet profile currently reads as 164 cm, while Sohyun's profile says she is 162 cm, thus saying they have only a 2 cm difference. HyunA confessed, "Sohyun's real height is actually 159 cm, while I am 162.8 cm." The two continued to explain, "We didn't lie about our heights on purpose. We're sorry that we weren't truthful to our fans."

She would still not look like this at that weight. I know people shorter than her at 42-43 who look skeletal

she looks pretty similar to sunmi, who we know is very underweight. i think hyuna just has the wider build/thicker waist a lot of idols have that means they don't always look as skinny as they are, see >>310400

Probably not. Hyuna basically fucked up his entire career, so he's probably pissed. I can't think of any idols that got kicked out/left their groups and were still successful afterwards, so his music career is most likely done for.

Lolol I came here just to see if any of the “RM sounds like a native speaker” anons were still around.

I don’t really blame rat monster for his shitty accent. Yeah it’s cringe when he tries to sound like an American rapper but some people are truly better at pronunciation than others and jungkook has always sounded pretty clear when he spoke what little English he knows. Obviously he’s not anywhere near fluent and still fucks up (Charlie puss lol) but I think pronunciation comes easier to him than other members. I’ve always thought that, and this song really shows it.

Anyway I’m cackling @ them doing a full English song. Is Big Hit still denying ever trying to succeed in the American market?

Back when Christina (white girl with a weird squeaky voice, for newfags) was big and on variety a lot, I noticed they always gave her the WORST makeup. They always had her wearing two tons of bright blue eyeshadow like a drag queen and bright red lips. I'm guessing they used the "Makeup for blue eyes is different so it's not our fault" excuse there too but they always made her look like shit.

It’s not only about bigger frames though, it’s also about length. I’m kinda short and pretty thin, you could probs wrap your fingers around my wrists and ankles, and Koreans were always going on about my “chopstick” legs, but I still felt big around korean guys because they are so fucking stumpy. There is a reason they are so obsessed with proportions. I dated guys who were taller/bigger than me yet they had the same size or shorter forearms. Seeing my exes driving a car and having to be so close to the steering wheel was such a wtf moment. Yet, I realized their head/face were quite large. The big head thing isn’t really a problem but the short limbs were so weird. I noticed once guys got 180cm or over it balanced out, so that makes sense that Koreans are obsessed with that height for males.

If you buy clothes from asian brands like Uniqlo in the west you can get the same waist or bust size in but the arm and leg lengths will be a few cm longer than what you get in Korea. I hope this obsession with face size doesn’t get imported along with kpop. I think western people don’t really have to worry about the size of their faces (unless u look like Benedict cumberbatch) because it’s balanced with their bodies and longer limbs.

This is the whole problem with celebrities in general. They may be talented in acting/singing/dancing, but they spent most of their lives doing that, they are just as ignorant, or even moreso, since they work so much, compared to average person.

They should keep themselves out of political issues completely, since fans can and will just blindly follow what they say without thinking.

the post on r/bangtan about the tshirt was initially deleted by a mod, but it's back up since then. the post about it on r/kpop had about 1.1k upvotes when i last checked but was like 80% upvoted, for a while it was at 60%. even if you don't ant to spread news about how your fave idol fucked up, reporting and trying to hide evidence of it is messed up.

if bts were as #woke as fans have spent months making them out to be then they'd have a long, eloquent letter about how the tshirt was a bad mistake and very wrong but that if you're angry about that then you should also be angry about japan denying war atrocities as well. it would be the best way to not piss off any side too much, but i don't know what they're going to do. ignore it, the way sm ignores their idols' scandals? the generic "i sincerely apologise for [BAD THING] and will reflect on my mistakes" letter they have a draft saved of?

While I agree with pretty much everything you typed, I don't think anybody should have to address mental health issues if they're no comfortable with it, especially the self-harming stuff which can be embarrassing to talk about with the people you know let alone thousands of strangers
And Jimin does technically address his anorexic bs, he used to flaunt it constantly.
My problem with their ""woke mental health awareness"" bs is that nobody, with the exception of Suga, spoke about it or cared about it until the "Sadboy" shit became popular. Then suddenly 4/7 of them are depressed with anxiety and RM releases a Sadboy mixtape where he talked about how he has no friends and he doesn't like himself uwu

I agree with you and I understand why someone might not be comfortable with talking about it. As much as I criticize them, I hope anyone who needs help with their mental health gets it. Jimin has an obvious issue with his weight and he talked about how he's starving himself numerous times, I feel like speaking up about how to get over that (assuming he got over it..) to their extremely impressionable audience would be the responsible thing to do for people who want to be known for spreading mental health awareness. I don't want to assume too harsh things about them but I really doubt they encouraged Jimin or Jungkook to get actual help off-stage. It's true that none of them except Suga even cared about it until it became "trendy", I find it obnoxious when people use things like this for their personal gain, if you are going to do it, do it genuinely.

In one of them she gets a massage that Korean females get where their legs are battered and bruised up to make their legs skinny so they dont have to get leg lengthening surgery. And she talked about how it was so painful she couldnt sleep for days after but that its worth it because ~at least my legs are smol uwu~. Its fucking retarded and dangerous and quite honestly makes her look pathetic. She's an adult not a teenager.

Or it could make a good news article or something since it's 100% going to get attention.

tiffany seems a lot more likeable when she doesn't have to have the sm, snsd image. still kind of irritating, but it's a lot more natural and endearing than when she was in korea. since it's getting to a point where second gen idols are either coming to an end or are at a point where they don't care about their image anymore, i hope there's going to be more of them taking on more mature images. the idol image might kind of die once they pass 30 but it's not like they're actually that old, if they know how to reinvent themselves then it could be interesting and a refreshing change to having groups just fade away when they're not appealing to teens

So, the girl that got caught smooking weed with T.O.P is seemingly angry that he posted on IG today and posted a long rant, most likely about him, on her IG herself:


"Don't even think about coming out. Who do you think you are to be crawling out like this? I heard you're telling your peers that I received money from you and that I'm a gold digger? You must be talking a lot of s*it for it to also reach me. Stop talking about me. Talk about it after you actually give me money. You do have a lot of money.
You seem to be living quietly so I had my mouth shut but I'm going to say what I need to say since you're uploading on Instagram as if nothing happened hehe. But I won't lie saying you're a gold digger at least.
Do you know how many of your company's business that I hid for you? I'm so nice. The reporters begged me to break the news but I rejected it all because I was scared. I should've just done it. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. Why did I go there (YG building) on that day? You know, right?

That starfucker is going to milk TOP for attention. I'm suprised she never got sued to shut up. Either she got real tea or her parents are more powerful party.

My guess is the company tried to pay her to paint TOP in good light in court and media and take most of the blame on herself?

Or she supplied drugs to other people at YG. Maybe her job was delivering drugs from a dealer to celebrities (a go-between, drug broker), hence all her male idol connections.

I'm slightly intrigued by this. Why? Only to gain fans because of the mistery? I don't see how someone dancing in a bunny mask won't get old fast. Or maybe it's a dude? Body wise it looks a lot thicker compared to the usual dainty idols.

Would it really have much controversy? Idols are always doing those live performances in drag with fake boobs. I can see why people would think it's a guy just because it explains the need for a mask, but I agree it's probably a woman and they are going for the "mistery" angle to gain fans.

However, if the person inside is a girl I don't get why the bunny person is completely covered considering most members are girls so no one could ever doubt that this new group is other than a girl group. But since barely part of bunny's skin is expos there's a chance that it's a dude but why?

Is this to protect the person's identity or just a hype they want to milk? I don't know why I'm rambling and I likely don't make any sense at all
