old, but hilarious milk. someone in the previous thread mentioned tao throwing a public fit when kris left the group, back in 2014.
he literally acted like a 12 year old who just got dumped by their online boyfriend of three days. honestly, kpop idols having to share their formative years with a tiny group of people seems unhealthy as fuck. i wonder how many toxic and clingy friendships there are.
the following is from an allkpop article about his sperging:
When he started to see the feedback he was getting on Instagram as well as Weibo with fans speculating that someone else had written the message, his Weibo was updated again with a message that stated, "I am EXO member Tao. The things said on Weibo and Instagram are by me. I have nothing to hide." He also posted messages along the lines about the truth surfacing sooner or later, further leaving fans to wonder about the truth of the situation.
this is almost as good as t-ara being slammed for "bullying" one of their members, by subtweeting her and making mean posts about her online. kek.

i think until their first contract ends and one of the members decide not to renew it because of many reasons.
But they might decide to stick with YG and blackpink because being in a shit-but-bigNknown-company is better then fading into nothingness if you don't already have something going on like being a good or loved actor like d.o from exo.
also the fans and public could turn against the ex-member and start blaming her for "Ending Blackpink" or calling her a snake if blackpink disbands or is doing bad.
minzy.. oh no baby what is you doing. why did she let someone edit this with windows movie maker transitions lmao.
i absolutely love watching low budget kpop music videos. the attached one makes me lose it every time. the nonsense english paragraphs that randomly pop up.. the dancing… god.
her ip got tracked by psycho fanshttps://omonatheydidnt.livejournal.com/1611659.html
i feel like there was also something about her viewing a thread about krystals legs
unfortunately(because it brought so many lolz) there wont be another hwayoung situation i dont think
companies are really good at keeping the bullying shit on the low and apparently it has happened in many groups and not much is known about it (apink, after school, secret etc) because people get paid off to keep their mouth shut basically
according to the first girl and her father yeah but they reneged when they got paid off
she was the richest member, apparently helped some of the other girls by paying for things(according to them) and the other girls "bullied" her and she got kicked
they did a press conference and everything and then they were all "just kidding we didnt mean it teehee" after like..a week lol
im more inclined to believe it was true or they wouldnt have said it to begin with for risk of defamation charges
the thing is shes really close to eunji still
and eunji has fallen victim to similar rumors
there was a tumblr that collected evidence of her being "ostracized and alone" just like hwayoung but i dont believe ithttps://twitter.com/apinkxcho/status/692958130582458368?lang=en
its really hard to know what to believe with any of these things because the k entertainment industry is mega weird with the extent they go to hide things

ew..do they give you free plastic surgery in the military too? he doesnt even look like the same guy. >its just because he hasnt ate enough and is too skinny
bitch they dont starve you in the damn military
sorry but are people REALLY checking for them anymore?
victoria fucked off to china, sulli is living the party life, luna is busy being an ana chan between mediocre comebacks(she deserves better in terms of how talented she is but she can fuck off with the bitchy skinny girl lifestyle crap because its very grating), krystal seems to be more into fashion (just like her sister) and being an edgy indie darling
amber is the only one that seems to even care that much about kpop at all anymore but i dont think her comebacks ever get much hype anymore
im still so damn bitter about red light and that entire album not getting the promotion and video collection it deserved
when is that new gg going to happen? those girls trained alongside the dreamies and nothing is heard from them except for those 2 or 3 that left.
sm going to drop rv once this new group comes out.

what is it about current gen boy groups that make them look so repulsive? is it the plastic surgery? did BTS always look so gross?

honestly doesn't look that bad, although would obviously be disgusting in real life.>>337192>spotify
snsd has less views than most of twice's music, doesn't mean they weren't huge.
To support my argument:https://www.soompi.com/article/970499wpp/nuest-members-open-decided-appear-produce-101-season-2
The members of NU’EST recently explained why they are appearing on “Produce 101 Season 2,” despite being a group that made their debut in 2012.
The first episode of Mnet’s survival boy band show aired on April 7 and showed the 101 trainees getting their first rankings. The second half of the episode featured an appearance by Kang Dong Ho (Baekho), Kim Jong Hyun (JR), Choi Min Gi (Ren), and Hwang Min Hyun (Minhyun), all members of boy band NU’EST.
The members stated that they knew that many considered them a failed boy band, and added, “We’re thinking of this as our last chance. We’re here because we’re that desperate.”
Kang Dong Ho shed tears as he confessed, “There are two people from our agency [Pledis Entertainment] who became members of I.O.I. I want to be like them. I want to be like the people who became members of I.O.I and SEVENTEEN.”
Seeing them appear on stage for their evaluation, trainer Kahi couldn’t help but cry as she said, “I used to be a trainee with them, and I feel so bad seeing them up there.” Kim Jong Hyun also revealed that after his first glance at Kahi, he couldn’t look her way any longer because he felt like he was going to start crying as well.

idols often get asked at fansigns who cries the most in the group and they usually answer with a whole list, i get that their culture lets men be more emotional but it's still weird, are all of them that unstable?
crying at award shows is always so fake though lol

>Ever since her departure from JYP, there was no reason to suspect that things had ended on bad terms as even her father stated that everything was sorted out.
>However, one fan left a comment on her Instagram selfie saying that SoMi looked great and that it was styling and looks that JYP wasn’t capable of delivering to fans. Other fans naturally took this comment as throwing shade at SoMi’s former agency. But the problem began when SoMi liked the comment, causing some critical fans to turn their attention towards the K-Pop idol.
>Fans have been wondering whether she liked the comment because she was complimented on her looks or because the comment was taking a shot at JYP Entertainment.
What do you guys think? This is such an arrogant move cause whether she wants to admit it or not, JYP was the one who debuted her. She could have stayed quiet til things are peaceful enough for her to say anything at all. Why do so many artists act like this now? Like with the Hyuna's case or Coco's case (a nugu artist). Even Jessica stayed quiet about her shit with SM and SNSD til now.

apparently pristin fans are protesting outside their company building. i think the last time they dropped a song, as a group, was in 2017. one of the members (kyulkyung) is chinese and has gotten a lot of solo work there, but i wonder what the other members have been up to. it's kinda funny how chinese idols get treated like shit in korea, but when they have had enough and go back to their home country, where some of them are treated like gods, their korean fans complain?>>337269
he probably likes it. like, there is no reason for it to be this public? he is comfortable with this guy posting private pics of him. after all, sehun was the one who posted the after sex selfie with that sj member. i think he enjoys the attention lol.>>337303
i think it's extremely arrogant. jyp were the ones who made her and taught her everything she knew. the company gave her so many opportunities and benefits. i think not having her in a group was a good move on their part too, as it would have been the somi show lol. i'm pretty sure they were alright with letting her go because she had made back the money they invested in her? i'm really curious to see how she gets promoted once she debuts.

I'd admit she was born pretty and will never need any PS at all, but there's something uncanny about her mature features… like a 10 year old girl isn't supposed to look that mature

File: 1544455944201.jpg (151.77 KB, 1280x720, rainbow-tell-me-tell-me.jpg)
to be fair when she debuted she wasn't that much bigger than the members, she looked pretty normal and it was just unfortunate that pristin had some super skinny girls she'd be compared to. she gained weight after the debut, but even then it was made worse by the way she was dressed. kpop stylists aren't good at dressing idols that are bigger than the average idol without making them stand out for the wrong reasons. rainbow at one point had 6 girls in crop tops and then the one chubbier girl in a tshirt with a shirt covering her stomach
Yezi did some appearances here and there but Heize blew up and took over.
Kasper was last involved in some mess with Kang Daniel and another rapper girl (the girl claimed she dated him, Kasper jumped in to confirm) and that's the last I'd heard of her.
But the newer generation probably doesn't know much about 2ne1, anon
Since blackpink is pretty, it makes no difference to the teens whether they're 2ne1 clones or whatever
I think she's a lot prettier than many, maybe even the majority of other idols. Her body is great too.
Take Umji for example, she's short, chubby, ugly, can't sing or dance, yet Gfriend is successful as well?
Kpop fans don't give a ahit about talent, as long as they have something to fap to.

If so, yeah they also had her singing and dancing to Side to Side. Her popularity apparently soared after that.

like did the interview did this on purpose or something?
Not that anon, but honestly, even if they didn't know what the lyrics meant the choreography is still way too much for a teenager to be doing.
Didn't the producer say something about wanting Produce48 to be like mild porn?

uhhh what? Pristin's stylists did the exact opposite. Kyla always got verrrry flattering outfits for someone her size. So much so that most people didn't notice that she was bigger until it blew up in the media when they finally forgot to cover her barrel gut at one point.
Besides that, she's always got her flabbiest bits covered up. The stylists rarely ever put her in shorter than 3/4 sleeves, but typically still keep her legs uncovered so she won't stick out too bad from the rest of the girls.
Look at literally any one of their MVs - Kyla gets the most flattering outfit that shows the least skin every time. And it's not like they sacrifice style for her.
I mean, just imagine her in any of the other girls' outfits? She would look much, much bigger in the kind of skimpy clothes the rest of the group often wears.

O shit I forgot about this one, too fucking funny
there are literally korean lyrics on the screen of every performance in pd48, they even translate the english songs. the fancams don't have them because they are unedited.>>337733
kek. other idols seem to dislike gfriend because they do fake shit like this and seem generally annoying. yerin performed their the choreography on a tv show where other idols also were guests, and she was talking about out how hard it was compared to other girl groups. kai from exo was talking with taemin while she was dancing, and when she was done he said something like "it doesn't seem that hard, especially compared to boy groups". apparently he got some flack for it. lmao.. this seems so juvenile. i wonder how much idols talk behind each other's backs.
I generally agree with Kai's opinion tbh. It's not the girls' fault because their companies won't let them do strong dance moves fearing they'd look manly, but as a whole boy groups have tougher choreography even if they're not known for being great dancers.
GFriend's "synchronized choreo" doesn't really indicate dancing skill - when I was forced into going for group dance contests as a kid I managed to stay in sync with the better dancers, which made me look like a good dancer by association.

They've done everything they have so far with just one member that's semi-fluent. They have translators if they need them. If they have personal ambition to learn the language they will, if not, they won't because they simply don't need to. It's just what kpop companies do these days, I mean which kpop group even bothers to learn japanese before debuting there? Kpop has established itself as a niche everywhere and besides a few mainstream one-hits will remain that way. Tutoring your idols in different languages is just a waste of resources for companies at this point. Besides, the majority of the paying fans of these groups are koreaboos/asians themselves and them speaking a different language is part of the appeal.
Who's going to tell armpits that though, they're still labouring under the delusion that BTS will become the next Drake releasing Korean songs.
If BTS want to be mainstream artists relevant to the American general public, they're gonna have to suck it up and release Konglish songs and learn the language, or accept that they're gonna be a big fish in the small pond of Kpop niche. Which I think BTS personally is fine with, seeing how miserable they look every time they come to America.
Are you 12?
But nah, I actually think BTS is the most mainstream kpop is ever gonna get. And I believe they and their team know this. Don't know if I would say they already peaked, but no matter how popular they'll get, that'll be the height of hallyu in non-asian countries for a long, long while.
We had stars like BoA, Rain or the Wondergirls attempt it with learning english, promoting in a western style but it just didn't click, especially not for the time in the early 2000s. There was nothing that was setting them apart from their western, more popular contemporaries so they flopped. There was no power vacuum like we had it with the disbandment of 1D. BTS was familiar enough for a lot of ex-fans to migrate to their fandom, but different enough to be exciting for news outlets to write about them and create more critical acclaim than 1D ever had. It's really interesting how everything came together.
not saying they have to completely drop their korean releases, i just find it very lazy that they want to be recognized in america so bad yet don't show any effort to learn the language. would tutoring them really be that big of a waste of money and time? foreign idols learn korean, a lot of people with lower opportunities learn english, they can do it as well. maybe they just owned up to this being as big as they are going to get like you said, but iirc bighit said they are going to try to promote their new boy group internationally or something like that>>337955
the videos i see of them in america are so cringy, even an esl middle schooler who takes 2 english classes every week would handle an english conversation better than your average bts member
>Are you 12?
I agree with you though. Kpop is just going to be another niche like anime or indie films. English-speaking acts like Little Mix can't quite break into the American market, One Direction was the big exception that proves the rule.
BTS knows that their success was like lightning in a bottle, they just got incredibly lucky. The sheer volume of content they put on English-language sites definitely helped them gain their international fanbase; nobody would care if they put their vlogs and updates on Naver or Melon instead of Twitter/Youtube. They must have felt more "accessible" and "real" in a way that 1D didn't.
Oh it's for sure lazy. Or… if I may put on my tin foil hat for a second here, maybe it's deliberate to keep them in check? Western pop stars have a LOT more leeway with their management and fans, from partying to relationships to just voicing their opinions. I'd reckon it'd be a lot harder to get sucked into the Hollywood-lifestyle if you don't speak the language and also don't understand the culture around it, so maybe this is an attempt to hold their image together as much as possible. LOL idk, they won't be able to do the same shit with their new group thought because it's an entirely different scenario. I wouldn't be shocked if they actually have foreign members in there.>>337965
BTS was even more accessible to the average kpop fan at the time; I don't recall any group doing something like this ever before. Companies like SM were VERY uptight about their idols, and they still are, but even they are starting to understand that kids these days want to feel like they know their oppas, the old-school haughty mysterious idol persona doesn't fly anymore. They opened up 3 fucking youtube channels for NCT ffs LOL
Rapmonster does speak english and they still have him in check. There's nothing that could keep the others from studying on their own - other than their brain…
I really think it's a mix of being dumb and holier than thou nationalism
He's also the one who has put his foot in his mouth the most. Really makes you think huh!
But yeah, BTS's (american) success has always been an ego stroke for korean promotions first and foremost.
if i had to credit bts for popularising something and changing the way kpop idols work it be their social media and video presence. they were uploading short youtube videos of them just interacting and post video diary things since before they even debuted, and that was before v live was around. it's how i found them in 2014 and it's got to be the same for a lot of other people. it meant they got the fandom of a boyband and of youtubers.
the old school variety shows are pretty much dead now and you can see new groups typically being really stiff on air compared to groups from the 2nd gen. variety shows now are just groups doing their own dances at different speeds and then doing other groups dances, i think if bts hadn't gotten so popular off of online videos then 3rd gen groups would've had to get better at variety tv shows instead of v lives.
Kpop groups are generally more open with fansigns/fan meetings and such, but that costs lots of money and is restricted to Korean speakers. BTS was the first group to make themselves accessible for free via social media, which helped them gain a fanbase that'd buy albums.>>337982
Which is sad, I really loved seeing idols from different groups interact and shoot the shit together. And those shows were seen by the general public which meant idols had a chance of appealing to an audience beyond Kpop listeners. Now all groups pretty much live in their own bubbles.

coco from cocosori is getting sued
I mean it's obvious that they put more money into Sori's solo debut. I understand she got hype from being shit on by YG about her age on Mixnine but they were more marketable as a duo.
They had this twinsie concept along with a quirky Jpop sound and look which was honestly stupid but fun.
same anon as >>338026
Coco did get screwed, put public bashing while under contract was pretty dumb. It's already been discussed how wonky Korea's libel laws are, she's kind of digging her own grave.
now, while the surgery was bad, to be fair they kinda look like they could be in a korean remake of the shining before.>>338016
this reminds me of another duo, 15& where one of them got a decent solo debut and the other ended up doing radio and variety shows to make money. Except the one who did radio shows honestly ended up being more popular than the other and wasn't shading her company for not letting her sing more.
I get being pissed at your company for letting you rot but it's bold to publicly shit talk your company while still being with that company.
this is why its gonna be a looong time before we really get that kmusic expose we all want where someone tells all
Man t-ara really had everything didnt they? A shitty ceo who harassed and threatened the girls with "replacement" and proved he was serious by adding a new girl, she had a shitty personality and didnt want to work, has a sister involved in a bully scandal in her own group, the other girls become "mean girls" in the public eye because she plays the victim, her and her sister threaten to kill and maim yet ANOTHER new girl added to the group, the girls pasts get exposed which involved underaged camgirling, high school prostitute gangs, then she leaves the group but their reputation is fucked forever, the girls start faking illnesses and car accidents to cover up plastic surgery/for sympathy, several of them develop eating disorders, they had a disasterous attempt at promoting in the usa(thanks to yet ANOTHER new "member" who was "friends with chris brown" because her dad was in the industry)(even though she was like..13 years old) where they basically toured ghettos, signed shoes, met and hung out in the studio with a bunch of rappers who had no idea who they were, and attempted to perform at a Chris Brown show and were horribly treated and embarrassed while doing so, to the point where they had to be subdued because they were crying and upset after, and one of them legitimately goes insane and her family has to take her out of the group and put her in a mental hospital, and the group tries to hold on but ends up having to go to another country just to make money until several other original members leave(including the only one that could really sing in the first place)

the shit that's on tumblr, wtf LOL
theyre always going to have fans until they do something ~problematic
"Microdots whereabouts remain unclear and rumors that the rapper is on the run have gained momentum after a media outlet reported that his house is now mysteriously empty.
On the December 11 broadcast of SBS’ “E-news Exclusive,” different stories about celebrities, their families, and long-hidden debts were the focus of the show.
Since Microdot’s parents were exposed for fraud, A growing number of entertainers have been mired in controversy due to their parents’ long-hidden and unpaid for debts and schemes. Unlike some of the celebrities like involved like Dok2, Ma Dong-seok, and former SNSD member Tiffany, when the scandal involving his parents became public late last month, Microdot essentially disappeared.
In addition to stepping down from all of his entertainment programs, he reportedly moved out of his home at an unknown date. One of his neighbors spoke to SBS and said that they heard him moving and that he left sometime at night. A real estate agent confirmed the speculation that he moved out. “The house was sold,” said a real estate official in the area where Microdot lived. Now another person resides at the residence.
In addition to Microdot, his older brother, Sanchez and both of his parents have notably been absent as well. The family’s disappearance comes after they assured authorities and media that they would cooperate with the police investigation and had not “intention of hiding or escaping.”
Last month, police asked INTERPOL (International Criminal Police Organization) for assistance in detaining Microdots parents, who currently live in New Zealand. However, under current law, they were only able to prevent them from escaping outside of New Zealand but cannot forcibly repatriate them.
The prosecution and police also announced on November 29 that they are considering the process of requesting their extradition. However, it is expected that it will take a long time for that to take place due to bureaucratic red tape process.
If they do decide to pursue this option, they will have to go through and wait for a decision by the Korean Ministry of Justice, the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the New Zealand court, and the New Zealand police. “Even if the repatriation is decided, it will take more than two years,” said a police official."
hope he's ok tbh idk the situation but im assuming he wasnt involved and if not, it sucks he's having to live in fear and having to hide for something that isnt even his fault
It's a shame that people only use his death to "protect" their biases from getting hates when what they do is actually wrong, not as a lesson. Literally nobody tries to dig up how problematic
Kpop as a whole is.

Lmao I think they're trying for the Trouble Maker situation. Sadly it won't happen cause the crackhead can't sing at all. It worked when Hyuna did it with Hyunseung, I even thought they'd come out as a couple but no. Speaking of Hyunseung, his career is over I think.
Honestly its not easy to find it alltogether. I was on 4chan for years and it was all posted there as it happened. Im pretty sure most of the tumblrs/blogs that posted about it are defunct now.>>338297
Tiffanys dad is apparently involved with some shady mob tier stuff and she recently revealed that she was scared for her life and the life of her group members because of it. As other posters have stated though, it seems fishy. But thats where the similar ends I think. Nobodys blaming her for her dad's stuff, but people seem to be under the impression microdot is on the run because he knew something or something idk.
You're right, but in terms of digitals T-ara were monsters. The general public probably wouldn't give a fuck about their charisma as long as they had good songs (see: Jennie and Blackpink). Jiyeon used to get a lot of media attention for looking like Kim Tae Hee - she used to beat Yoona on those dumb polls of "best visual" whatever - and Eunjung was a rising actress.
My point is they definitely had potential, and if they'd started promoting in China as a scandal-free group they'd definitely have a huge Chinese and Korean fandom to rival SNSD and KARA in Japan. But anyway it's pointless to speculate because T-ara is a fulltime Mandopop group now and their name is dirt in Korea.
Also interestingly Soyeon was a couple months away from debuting as SNSD's leader and main vocal - it's nice that she became successful as a T-ara member even if it was shortlived.
Nah, I meant Jimin when she was doing after school club and stuff like that, but you might be right about her being more popular, I just assumed Yerin was more popular in Korea.>>338320
god the t-ara scandals were fucking hilarious, I wish something that milky would happen again.

ok i think you arent understanding they arent saying its linked per se, just that the situation is similar
they could have mentioned yeeun as well because it happened to her too
How do armys fangirl over this overdramatic and unprofessional shit….At least their 2016 Mama performance was gay as shit yet put somewhat put together.
Maybe their just high on all the pussy and weed coming their way.
Anyways…Why is MAMA separating everything this year?
lmao the fucking downgrade, their 2018 performance looked boring as hell. they really stopped caring didn't they
v has such an annoying voice and needs to learn that shouting isn't singing
I kind of liked Jhope here, he looked less cringy clothing wise at least. I can't stand V's voice though, it's like the joke voice one does when they are trying to sound retarded/dumb.
That intro was really terrible. Them all in white floating in a white background was cringe lol at least give me a song that matches the feel of the intro, why Anpanman?

Korea companies is trying to break into the US market, and US artists are trying to get some hype by collaborating.
Both sides are just there for the money. The fact Chris Brown is still allowed to be a thing tells me no one gives a fuck about anything but the green. And fans are just stupid sheep.
have you seen them together back when they were doing interviews as a group? The guy looks like his soul is trying to escape all the time.
Then he gets up to do a dance and he's a different person.
something has to be going on. Like remember Sechs Kies and how YG purposefully torpedoed the group because he was afraid of his wife getting too popular because he wanted to date her?
I wouldn't put it past YG to let Jennie do whatever if she called him "daddy" if you know what I mean.
That's how infantile he is.
im a card carrying armpit and even i thought this performance was lackluster. the intro, the costuming and the staging is so bland. they brought nothing new that they haven't done before. their best mama was 2016 like >>338530
theres no reason for mama to be split over so many nights and countries. shameless cash grab.

This face Soyeon from gidle makes is so annoying. I couldn't find a completely accurate gif of it but she does it in every performance. It looks so try hard.
idk she looks kinda like a vampire tbh and thats hot to me
i dont follow that group though is it one of the ones with 34574975349857 girls in it?
ITZY is believed to be the name of their upcoming Japanese GG? Poeple were making connections to the words ichi/ichiban. Ofc all just speculation
iirc there won't be any Korean members in this Japanese group, either so Im not sure if we can really connect jisoo, chaeryeong and ryujin to this.
Companies recycling concepts from their past acts isnt anything new…
idk about that.. It just seems to me that they are just riding off the whole trend of the latin/mediterranian/arabic aesthetic.
Eric Nam(potion), DPR Live(playlist), Super Junior(lo siento) and Mamamoo (egoistic).
Each of the examples I listed draws from different cultures in their visuals but the uniting factors are the warm tones/bright colors/flowy outfits/detailed patterns etc. So their concepts are largely trend-driven.
I like the way Gidle does it the best because it does have a more femme fatale vibe to it. This trend will die just like tropical house in kpop so its whatever.
Point taken, but the point with the next GD thing is being a one-man engima: stage prescence+composition skills.
B.I was the first to be pushed as so. He went on SMTM3 w/Bobby before Mino(SMTM4) and YG really wanted to empahsis his producing skills before his debut. Now he brags about how much he makes in royalties. They never really pushed Bobby like that. Mino got similar attention because of his past with underground hip-hop and how close he is with Zico.
Jennie has no claim to the title since she has no songwriting or producing credits, just performance.
They are now doing this with Bang Yedam with the Treasure Box show because they keep pushing how he self-composes and played some of his songs on the show.
I wonder if this is him trying to make his SNSD/TWICE gg…
Im a sucker for girlgroups so as much as I would hate to admit this, I'm begrudgingly looking forward to this.
Too bad he doesnt realise how much of a gem Blackpink are though. They have a lot of fucking pull. I'm Rose's bitch uwu. Lisa (+BP) basically has all of SEA in her hand.. I mean look at the Shopee situation lol
He's obsessed with recreating whatever GG is on top. He had something unique in 2ne1 and threw them away because they weren't as feminine as SNSD. Idiot didn't realize that they had fans BECAUSE they weren't like SNSD. He just latches on to whatever other girl groups get praised for without aiming for any kind of originality.
I feel like he's obsessed with SM groups in particular; SNSD for sure, but he also copied Red Velvet's "dual concept" name.
He definitely is a misogynist but whats new?
That's just wishful thinking on your part… CL is known for composing for 2ne1.
There is no evidence that Jennie has solo composition skills, and she was never really teased as such. Its not a detriment to her though.
YG pays special attention to Jennie for sure, thats why she gets her solo first, the lazy jennie video was struck down, jennie commenting on how YG personally picked out her outfits for 'SOLO', her predebut song with GD and it goes on. BP was built around Jennie.
The only member in BP who would realistically be able to self-compose is Rose. If each member actually does get a solo gig I predict that hers will be a fully or party-composed acoustic piece.
Good point about the name-copy. With Blackpink I always though 1/2 of the members were "black" and the other "pink"
Black would be more femme fatale while pink would be more upbeat? Here is how I initially categorized it; Black (Jisoo/vocal, Jennie/rap) Pink (Rose/vocal, Lisa/rap)
but like theres nothing to support that. I think of the big 3 RV has the best and most clear concept but I cant shake the fx thing…
Also I think adding Yeri wasnt the best choice for RV. Overall they just feel odd but im getting off-topic from YG stuff sorry
Oh no I'm not saying that Jennie is Mozart. There's just a huge difference in how he treats his male and female trainees. BI once mentioned that the male trainees were encouraged to learn how to compose songs, and I just don't think the female trainees were granted that same privilege.
CL is the exception, and anyway now YG is holding her back from releasing her music because he doesn't favour her anymore. As much as Rose wants to compose I don't think YG will even let her have a go at it simply because she's not Jennie
I actually can't tell the difference between their Black and Pink sides musically - I thought Stay, Whistle, PWF were Pink side songs (aka not swaggy club bangers) but apparently it's just AIIYL? With Red Velvet there's a clear difference.
If they want to present both Black and Pink in one song, Teddy's not doing a very good job at differentiating the two.
CL cant be the exception considering the ratio of female to male acts in YG. Calling CL an exception is just trying to make your argument easier. I'm not inherently disagreeing with your main point: YG's misogynistic behavior and favoritism. Im just pointing out specifics.
Rose did compose an acoustice piece for a cover performance for BP's Japan concert earlier this year. Here is her hinting at it on IG: https://www.instagram.com/p/BlIX7azBAiu/
Here is a clip of performance:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1K6CEH7HYL4
Also Id be hesitant to make an absolute statment about Rose's potentital. Its easier to assume that we dont expect YG to do so, but I personally think its possible for her solo.
I dont think BPs concept is the same in practice as it is in name with Red Velvet.
Red Velvets concept is the stark visual and sound contrasts between their title tracks.
Blackpink only really contrasts in name. I think its really meant to showcase how the girls can be femme and badass but in no contrasting way, but rather a blend. Maybe its like their concepte is more sour-patch kids?

She honestly has such an unfortunate body shape, its a wonder why they would dress her in something like this that makes her look so disproportionate with that flat ass hair and too thick waist that makes her look fat even though you can see her abs
That sounds terrifying anon, I can't imagine how much worse they'd act if they were around the real BTS. I can't help think the band actually hates their fans for being this obnoxious >>338645

i'd like to think that companies also know all the shady and dark stuff about their idols that the company could use to destroy the their career.
So that could be also a reason why idols rather just move on to another company and stay quiet.
we already know that companies try to bury scandals and pay news outlet to also hide it.
There's no doubt that there are idols who
bully Or just have a rotten and nasty personality
I'm the complete opposite LMAO thought Tempo was good, this I had to turn off after 30 seconds. SM's musical direction has been all over the place for their groups this year tbh>>338769>>338771

I think that she looked her best in Wow Thing, she wasn't straining herself to look "hot and badass", just the little edge female kpop rappers have.
She's really cute but the blue/green lenses need to go.
The thing that I find most amusing of those "badass" looking idols is how they all end up making cutesy faces in selfies with edits to look more childish, just like your next Twice member. It's weird.
It freaking weird, like these are freaking adult
males and at the time we were in a mid teens. Like, I think her bias was Jinki from Shinee (who I think looks uguu fight me) and the lewd shit she would want to do to him is nightmare fuel but then in the same breath wants to baby his ass. Praise Jamaica for banning Kpop, they know what's up.

I liked it too, but I think I liked Tempo better. The chorus on this one is a bit weird, like it worked better on the teaser but not so much as multiple parts in a song. I don't know how to describe it, like it doesn't feel appropiate as a chorus? Anyone else feel the same?
What I'm really sick of is idols and guns, they look so fucking childish all the time. And if they don't have a literal gun they are doing that weird shotgun movement with their hands lol stop it!!
omg yesss, finally someone else has noticed this phenomenon.
i met a kpop group at a meet & greet about ten years ago, the biggest impression they made on me was how huge their heads were relative to their bodies, we were allowed to hug them since this was in north america, and seeing them super up close with the gravity-defying layers of makeup and hair styles made them look like real-life Bratz dolls at best or actual aliens at worst (with the surgically-enhanced v shape chins and optical illusions of gigantic eyes from double eyelid tape/surgery, contact lenses combined with heavy eye makeup & eye lash extensions), their tiny neck area with protruding collarbones and stick-like legs holding up the huge head illusion is surreal up close in real life.
The other thing I noticed was the impressive amount of acne that's successfully hidden under the makeup on camera. It was very noticeable in person but I've never seen a picture of a kpop star with visible acne issues online.
No wonder these people get body dysphoria after growing up in the business and never looking natural a day in their life

When I was new to kpop I was always confused why they were so obsessed with head sizes.. Now I always see it and it's so fucking funny to me somehow. It's even worse because a lot of idols are so skelly so they look like walking lollipops
Yeah this is close to what I remember their makeup looking like, as if they covered their face in baby powder to hide the pimples. Although given that this is a press picture, it's still at least somewhat flattering.>>338823
Wonder Girls and JYP (during Jonas Brothers US-Canada 2009 tour). The girls were actually really sweet and patient with the fans.
The event had nothing to do with JYP, but he could never leave WG's side for a second and was always trying to insert himself as the center of attention, to the point where he actually kissed some thirsty fan girl who was harassing him during the meet & greet. Like to be fair, she was a big JY stan in the community and I think she was over 18… (hopefully), I also think he was single at the time but who knows. I was a teen back then and most of the fans were probably also teens so I thought it was kinda unprofessional tbh but whatever he clearly has no shame.
That being said, he looked normal and proportionate next to westerners given that he's a giant next to other Koreans.

Martina is only 5'7 - tallish but not model-tier - so these guys really are tiny. Keep in mind that they're probably wearing insoles as well, so it's quite funny how nearly all of Suju claim to be around 5'10.
As far as I know Korea is the tallest asian country, many young men there are tall, so no idea why there are so many twinks in the idol industry. Is it the same as in AKB and Johnny's in Japan? That they purposely choose the "sm0l" ones?

She's not gonna drop an expose yet. Kris and Luhan won't either since they left on good terms with the EXO members themselves (which means they might not want to publish anything that'll harm them)
Tao would probably be the most likely one to spill tea since he comes from money and was always a petty drama queen. Either way the ex-EXO members are still technically "signed" to SM until 2022 so we'll still have to wait for any milk. Or until Jessica ditches Tyler Kwon for a billionaire husband who'll pay off her NDA violation.

while browsing for this picture i found this allkpop article from last year where he's completely ballooned up again thoughhttps://www.allkpop.com/article/2017/02/shindong-explains-his-weight-change-in-the-military
damn that was really kinda yikes
even tho jk is younger he seems a lot more mature / unbothered
i like how it immediately moves to suga who just minds his own business and does the job
Don't know but as afaik he's a grade A asshole as well as looking like he does.
Here's a quote I found of his regarding women and weight>“If someone had to lose weight, I would tell that person to lose weight. Lose some weight, why can't you take care of yourself. When I say this, the person might think, 'Look who's talking,' but I would reply, 'I'm a boy and you're a girl.”

lol i cant
like…i feel bad for her sort of but jfc she looks utterly ridiculous
The second 2ne1's "US advancement" was announced in 2012, YG began teasing photos of the current BP girls - so he's right on schedule with one thing I guess? Anticipate Blackpink 2.0 starring Ella Gross around 2022!
Also YG doesn't understand that just speaking English is not enough - the moment Lisa raps something like "bitch I'm a star no Patrick" Blackpink is going to get laughed out of performances, if they get any attention at all.
>>Twice was going to promote in the US too
Most likely they'll just do concerts, like Red Velvet. I think JYP got burnt badly enough by Wonder Girls, and maybe he knows Twice's kindergarten music won't appeal to the West at all. They'll come for Kcon and do American concerts. I don't think they'll try doing anything else.
Ew i fucking loathe the thing with ella gross, she'll be used just like jennie, worse cause yg will be even older than now>>339175
Idk anon, wendy did a similar thing but people seem to completely forget about it

jungkook had super bad acne for a long time and fans seemed so horrified that their oppar was a human being with bad skin that just had good makeup/filtering, it’s bizarre how these fangirls don’t even see them as people despite “stanning” them so passionately lol
whoah, has she done something to her hips? she used to be built like wendy williams, she had really skinny legs and disproportionate breast implants. >>339185
when he debuted super junior was still meant to be a rotational group, that plan would’ve had him leave after a year or two to move on to variety work. there’s no way they would’ve let a tvxq or shinee member be fat, super juniors just a weird group since they weren’t meant to permanently be idols
She's probably just grasping for words because she hasn't used English in a while and doesn't hang around an English-speaking crowd (like Amber's gang of jobless expats).
She does have Rose to practice with but I don't even know if she talks to Rose off-camera, let alone talks to her in English.>>339190
The disconnect between what she really is like (soft-spoken, girly, timid) and what YG wants her to come off as (snobby swaggy rich bitch) is so apparent here.
Americans will sniff out the fakeness almost immediately - BTS could sell the "we're not like those other Kpop fakers because we write our own songs" image. Blackpink are as manufactured as it gets.
>>339219>she seems like she believes her own hype more than the other members
I don't see this at all tbh. I believe she was excited during their debut but quickly grew tired of it. It shows in her perfomances:
Nowadays she either looks tired, bored or straight up terrified on stage. She's simply not a gifted singer or dancer and a black hole of charisma so when she's not putting 100% into it it's.. bad.
I do think she enjoys the modeling/brand ambassador aspect of being an idol though, YG should've just promoted her as some kind of ~it girl~. I remember watching her and I think Jisoo on Running Man and being shocked at how meek her demeanor was. She's simply not a tough girl.

true but also other girlgroups with innocent pure virgins(we don't know what sex is, never heard of sex)concept and wearing a school uniform dancing in a sexual way would never be accepted.
imagine what their reaction will be they see women in their 20 acting and dressing up like they are 12 with cute songs and pigtails but also bending over and shaking their butts.
They are gonna be dragged up by some groups like parents, femenists and people in general who feel just disgusted by it.

Today bts won artist of the year, where Jin in his speech said that at the beginning of the year, they were thinking about disbanding.
This reminded me of earlier on in the threads were anon posted about the Jungkook self harm rumour, coming out at the same time they wanted to disband. Makes me wonder how much longer bts are going to be around for (even though they recently signed a 7 year contract) or if something is going to end up happening
Irene doesn't actually need Jennie as a friend, she's doing just fine. She landed endorsement deals with the biggest brands in Korea and is more famous than her group + Blackpink members + Twice members individually.
This Jenrene stuff benefitted Jennie the most; I remember seeing Irene tell a fan that she hadn't taken any pictures with Jennie. Fans saw the tweet and were all "omg Irene and Jennie take a picture together!" And lo and behold, a week later they're exchanging choreography and Jennie posted a video of Irene hugging her. Doesn't take a genius to see this strategic play for an "alliance"
they won't do another 7 years under the one agency, i'm sure of it. tvxq lost key members at their peak, bigbang are still all there but have 2-3 year hiatuses all the time and have major scandals, exo lost members. snsd, 2ne1, t-ara all crumbled in different ways, kpop groups can only get so big. i'm not surprised members wanted to just quit, it must be scary knowing you're reaching the peak of something that doesn't last long. either popularity fades and they're left being remembered as "wow they're a legendary group" but nobody actually buys their stuff or cares anymore, or they're going to break up in some way. kpop groups just aren't built to last, companies aren't there to protect their special unique baby boys, they're there to make money off them.
the only thing i really wonder about is if it's going to be an exo situation where members leave one at a time, or if it'll be a tvxq and the group will split in two. luhan, tao (and lay?) were going to leave eventually, that was obvious after kris went. yoochun and jaejoong were the obvious ones to leave tvxq, the only shock was junsu since he was primed as sm's golden boy and the male boa since he was a trainee. suga and jungkook exodus when?

jeshfjskjehskje not our rat boi trying to wipe away fake tears
my bet is suga leaving first; i could totally see jin fucking right off shortly after and becoming a full-time actor.
jungkook would probably do the best as a solo artist but i doubt he'd risk going solo when he's been with bts since he was a kid. and he knows he wouldn't be where he is without the group (also they make him look good by comparison lmao).
rat, horse and jimincel would probably stick around the longest because they're the uggos who should know they're nothing without the more ~*visual*~ members present.
v could either go into acting full-time or stick around, don't really think he gives a fuck anymore if he ever did but he's probably the least predictable as far as leaving bts or not goes.
there are idols who have basically been disowned by their parents though because they joined a kpop group
they dont really talk about it anymore because all kpop variety is just turbo fake bullshit cultivated for mentally retarded fans to eat up with no question, but they used to discuss those things on variety sometimes
and on the other hand, there are stage parents there jkust like in america, who think theyre gonna get money/fame out of it

Honestly it wouldn't surprise me if they considered disbanding despite being at the hight of they're career. They're fans haven't even really liked the songs they put out this year, they just stream it just to boost the numbers.
So they're being over worked to make alot of shitty songs, alot extra content to make up for the shitty songs and they probably know they're Western popularity isn't genuine and they're seen as nothing more than a foreign novelty.
To top it all off, I imagine whatever dirt dispatch has on them is probably weighing on them too because once they lose too much public favor it'll come out.
Never forget that one time Big Hit included questions specifically asking if respondents were feeling sad or depressed in a 29-page survey. They are definitely using mental health as a marketing tactic.
Here's the link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd8p2PVeJIwe_N830-ZmW1QqlE3IZOVDBIL-bWnb7Nho9Do8Q/viewform
this whole entire thing was fishy when they uploaded it, and the fact that fans were praising them caught me off guard.
This whole love yourself bullshit is taking advantage of their mentally ill fans 100%
he seems more sick of it than the rest of them though. he might plan on stepping back from the spotlight and become a full-time producer or whatever (which is what he wanted to do in the first place before becoming an idol).
he’ll still have money and sex, just minus all the idol bullshit that he clearly hates
barely anyone would care about jin leaving but v is the most popular member alongside jungkook afaik so that would definitely impact the group negatively when it comes to fans (no matter how much it would benefit them on stage lol)
bts are subpar on literally everything so one more incompetent member here or there wouldn’t make a difference to fans bc they’re a cult who will obsessively hype up anything bts does no matter how bad it is, but removing the top layer of the twink/fujoshit bait machine they have going? they’d be doing themselves a massive disservice.
Jin went to college to study acting. I don't know how good he is, but he seems to want it more than V does. He also seems to be a functioning adult instead of a barely socialized autist.
The only publicity V will get 10 years from now is for his multiple rape charges - he just screams "misogynist" to me.
v is living a very lucky life for someone so talentless. i don't understand why a lot of people blindly like him, he has literally no talent, his personality is so fake and unlikeable. finding out about how much of a retarded country boy he is made me dislike him even more but i've found him insufferable even before that. there is also the "he's the most handsome man alive man alive!!" thing going on which makes me wonder if armys have never seen any other man throughout their entire lives or something, he just looks like an average guy

They can’t just admit he’s slow lol. They have to turn exhalt his behaviour in some way.
I remember reading a nearly 400k fanfic called House of Cards, and the writer had actually subjected the "fictional" members to all types of abuse, and there was this scene (I'll never fucking forget) of one of the members getting fucked by a gun…..
The most popular fics either tend to be basic premises or the most twisted shit where they vividly depict rape and murder, and glamorize suicide.
I really do wish I could take back all those wasted minutes I spent reading sick shit on ao3.

Yes, I'm still on this, but the same writer also has a fic where she graphicly depicts Jimin fingering himself, shoving a condom? filled with cocaine up his ass.
Thought I was the only one who found his styling awful, that head to toe baggy brand clothes look is ugly. If they want to make him wear expensive shit, at least pick stuff that looks good together
It's also ironic for him to always wear the most expensive clothes when he said his ideal type is "a girl who spends his money wisely" lol
oh my godddd lmao
i'm surprised he's being so blatant with it too

lmao and even then armpits have absolutely nothing on exo fics back in the day.
there’s hunhan where sehun is in his late twenties/early thirties and luhan is 12 or younger, luhan as a minor getting gangraped by the rest of the exo members, sehun raping luhan where the former is the latter’s biological dad, one where luhan had his tongue cut out and served as dinner to an unsuspecting sehun by xiumin before sehun later (somehow) raped luhan to death where the reason luhan didn’t say no was bc he’d had his mouth forcibly glued shut by xiumin who then suggested he and sehun rape luhan’s corpse together, more necrophiliac and pedophilic stories, luhan as a 13yo prostitute getting raped by his dad, a schizophrenic sehun hallucinating his murdered baby sister’s bleeding corpse crawling around, d.o pulling out all of xiumin’s teeth, luhan slashing kris face open before cutting off his dick and stuffing it into the now open wound where his face used to be, luhan getting raped by four other members back in high school only to come back, murder them all and then eating their flesh…
shit was wild
All this talk of fanfiction gave me war flashbacks to when Anterograde Tomorrow was the hottest shit and you could send any EXO fan into hysterics by quoting it.
It was a Kai x D.O fic where I think D.O. had anterograde amnesia and couldn't remember anything from the previous days so he would have sticky notes of all the important things he needed to remember and somehow his neighbor, Kai, gets caught up in helping him remember shit and they fall in love or whatever but Kai's got fucking lung cancer or some shit, I don't know, I never actually got past part 1.
I do remember, however, some weird ass SHINee fanfic where (I think) Jonghyun and Key were fucking hardcore and at the end we find out Jonghyun's schizophrenic and Key never existed.
And my friend in highschool made me read some GD x TOP fanfic where they're like 8 years old and jerking it in a bathroom and when I told her that that's some fucked up shit she started whining about how it doesn't matter since none of it's real.
saging bc no1curr
luhan was my exo bias back then and i have a huge rape kink but it’s impossible to find well-written non-con without having to filter through all that insane shit i’ve since moved on to doyoung from nct but there isn’t much content in that vein on him sadly (yet)
>she started whining about how it doesn't matter since none of it's real.
This is what most RPF shippers resort to when their told their headcanons, fics, and art are fucking disgusting.
Do they not realize their oppars/unknees arent anime characters or is this apart of the marketing scheme?
Damn, she really sounds like her soul has left the body. Like a female Suga.
She sounds pretty fluent though. I mean, it's understandable that she would be, since she lived in NZ for years and even had a group of friends who were all locals… But in some instances, when she's in Korea and tries to speak English, she sounds super slow even in remembering the most basic words, like in that video where she talks about what to buy Lisa for her birthday. Is it possible that she would fake being less fluent in English than she is when in SK?>>339497
Wew, now I get why ratmys hype up V's looks so much. He's literally the best looking one in there, even with his basic face.
I like her, but I agree. The one WG who should've made it big is Ye-eun, she's a professional who's actually worked a lot on those singing lessons.
Hyelim has an interesting voice and I would've liked to hear her more, but it seems that she quit the idol life and is doing well in university. Good for her

Sunmi's vocals had a lot of potential when she was a teenager, here's a video when she's 14-15 singing on par with Sunye and YeEun who are 17-18. None of them had groundbreaking vocals at the time but they also weren't incompetent singers by any stretch.
>Sorry for the ancient blurry video, Sunmi sings first verse on the far left, Sunye is center and YeEun is on the right. You can also briefly see Hyuna sitting down in front of them.
To be fair Wonder Girls did sing live during all their performances, even their debut. The other day MBC uploaded the WG video from their ~kpop history~ series and I was genuinely surprised to see a Kpop group performing their main stages without ANY MR/backing vocals. That's probably non-existent nowadays.
The problem with how Sunmi's vocals evolved is a bigger overall problem in JYP with female singers. He composed their tracks and coached them to have cute/high-pitched/nasally vocals even when it strained their voice and didn't complement them at all. He also choreographed their songs and wanted their dance moves to be as simple and catchy as possible. YeEun butted heads with JYP a lot due to the fact they were never able to experiment with more powerful concepts or have any creative control until much later in their careers.
YeEun left the company because JYP sees an "artist" and "idol" to be two different things. That's why she doesn't perform on music shows to promote her indie singles, because stages are an "idol" thing. The same thing happened with Twice and Minyoung in sixteen. She would have been the most skilled vocalist in twice but JYP shamed her for being too "artist"-like and kicked her out at the last second. Twice also follows the cute/simple/catchy song & dance pattern, their vocals are infamously horrendous and get more squeaky with every release.
>tl;dr Sunmi was trained out of giving a shit about vocal talent, despite singing live in her youth, she doesn't give af about lipsynching now because that's what all idols do. YeEun will never get the fame she deserves because her musical talent makes her not an idol.
JYP had the nerve to shit on Shannon Williams' singing when Twice sound like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CX_lJt4VPU
Say what you want about SNSD but they never sounded this horrid. Maybe JYP could have copied adding a competent singer or two while he was ripping off SNSD's everything.

taeyeon scares me
yunjae shipping tops any other popular kpop ship. the yunjae fic gashiyeon was so popular that the line “it’s you, the beauty from class 8” is the go-to quote for any tv parodies of fanfic, it was on an snl skit. they knew about the fic themselves since they talked about it.
part of why it was so big was because it wasn’t pushed hard all of the time, other tvxq ships were pushed harder in the beginning, yunjae just stayed popular. there’s still fans who would swear that yunho and jaejoong are together, despite them only having one public meeting in the last 9 years. shippers analyse videos to say they heard the other one laugh in the background, say they share clothing, try to match up timelines, everything. but companies like ships, as long as fans still bulk buy for their faves. ships like yunjae and taeny are beneficial for whichever one is least popular at the time

Is the reason why you hold these beliefs a faulty understanding of defamation? Defamation requires both an intent to harm and damages done. Malicious rumors would get sued, clear fantasies that are posted on fanfiction specific sites are obviously completely harmless. It is normal sexuality, people daydream about having sex with celebrities all the time. Trying to portray that as something oh so problematic
says more about your backwardness than anything else. There's so much problematic
stuff in kpop to call out without resorting to pearl clutching.

SEA Kpop fans are pure cancer. And what's more embarrassing is that so many of them are in their late 20s and 30s too. Most of the hate comments Kpop idols receive, especially on instagram, are from SEA fans. If you see a Tweet making nasty comments about some group, 90% of the time the person is SEA. Idols going to SEA countries are molested and manhandled (see: Taeyeon, Nam Joo Hyuk for recent cases)

nct looks more like a football team than a music group
Kpop fandom involves stanning all members of a group (at least for appearances sake so you don't get ostracized for being an anti) while AKB48 only encourages you to pick 1 favorite to spend all your money on.
The way the NCT system is set up is probably meant to mirror that, except where SM fails is not giving other members not named Mark and Taeyong any opportunities to gather individual fans, plus the "OT18" nonsense is still encouraged when ideally an NCT fan shouldn't have to give a fuck about anyone else if her bias is Taeyong.
Also if SM wanted to go ahead and make money off this, they would have held a senbatsu every year for center position, but they wouldn't dare give up control and let someone else other than their chosen boys have the spotlight.
How tall is Lucas? Male idols lie about their height all the time but he seems
Barely. Its the same people circle jerking over how offensive everything is all day.
Anyway to keep this on topic, Jennie is still winning shows. How long before accusations of Sajaegi?
Honestly if SM had NCT go full 48 they'd be worth stanning lol. Uncle fans are being catered to en masse with these produce shows but there‘s nothing on that scale for fujoshis. I wish they were just shameless about it and stopped trying to make them mainstream. As a group it‘s never gonna happen.>>340430
I haven‘t checked this thread in 2 days and all I see now is people talking about fics they used to read.. like wow, there‘s disgusting fanfiction. How is that unique to the kpop fandom and why should we care. >>340439
Never. YG has somehow memed the general public and international fans into believing that they‘re all ~about quality music~ and that anyone saying otherwise is a dumb hater, despite their shit not having evolved since 2012. There‘s literally no difference in sound or visuals between 2ne1 or bp. Even SM let go of dubstep and box sets for their main groups LMFAO

Dont think it'll ever happen. Everything YG seems to release explodes in popularity, so if jennie's song has gotten so "big" thanks to sajaegi, the jennie/yg fans will say it's just YG being popular/mainstream in south korea.
Kind of sad too because songs like solo and gashina are plain but south korea eats it up.
1 minute and 55 seconds mark, he looks so much like GD that I actually thought it was him.
During his part he literally sings "GD isn't here so follow me".
Weird as fuck.
I’ve seen people comment things like “she CHOSE to perform!!! Her company didn’t force her!!”
Its just delusion, even if she did “choose” for herself to perform it would have been a decision made due to pressure from her company and fans. It’s not like she really wanted to perform while she had the flu just out of passion…

Anon, you've given me war flashbacks bc good fucking lord, I remember being hella tired of that bullshit. By the time I left the fandom though, I remember it had been found to be a plagiarized work (someone had read the original and outed it). Or it could be a different overpopular fic, it's been years so my memory is faulty.>>339975
Yeah there are. There's a rather infamous Yunho/Jaejoong one called 'Thorn Year' (to give an example) that has been printed into book format and has been translated from Korean to English on LiveJournal. I think there's manhwa adaptations of some parts as well.
And years ago when I was an EXO fan, I remember an incident where a Korean fan had printed out a Baekhyun/Chanyeol fanfic and presented it to Chanyeol at a fanmeet, asking him if he read fanfics with himself and if he liked any. I recall that his response was yes and that some were pretty good but I get the feeling that he was probably saying that to be polite.

This is some skinwalker-tier shit. I thought SK netizens shit on Tzuyu for a while for being tan and not Korean but they're modelling new faces after her now?
They might shit on her skin tone but they've always admitted she's pretty, anon
It doesn't feel like that because Nayeon is pushed far more than her
Seems like she's the Yoona of this gen now
Korean beauty standards are extremely rigid.
Double eyelids and large eyes, pale skin, an oval shaped face (the "V line"), preferably tall height but this isn't always necessary, long hair for women, a high nose bridge, and a small face. You will rarely see a popular Korean celebrity noted for their beauty who doesn't possess a majority of these traits.
the beauty standards in k-pop are usually tiny, pointy noses, the anime looking jawlines, double eyelids, pale skin and being extremely skinny. most of the idols have dyed hair with bangs too
i'll say the korean standards are more cutesy than the west. thin bodies being preferred rather than curvy bodies, aegyo, etc
Most Korean idols are the complete opposite of Western (lbr, American) beauty standards.
What is considered beautiful here, e.g. a strong or square jawline, high cheekbones, healthy tan, thicker lips, seems to be discouraged over there. The innocent puppy eyes look that's popular among female idols gets weird after a certain age.
daum is a Korean search engine, so Koreans looked up a Korean celebrity?
Guess BTS is not as famous after all.
Yeah, Janet Jackson's massive Korean fanbase managed to get V to #1 on a Korean search engine because they just happened to search him up en masse.
….Nah, it was just armies, much like every other time people claim that normies are noticing BTS online
Lmao right? I was so fucking confused about that.
Kinda contradicts the fact that bts is supposedly the best selling artist of the year and is quickly on track to outsell tvxq, suju, h.o.t etc (I forget the exact order of top sellers), meaning they’re soon going to be the best selling kpop band in history… idk maybe the stats i was reading were unreliable or fan propaganda bullshit.
But they seem very out of touch with the Korean public, usually these types of groups are loved throughout the nation, even older generations became familiar with most of the best selling groups.
Are we witnessing a shift in the kpop industry where success and sales no longer correlate with popularity in their homeland but noroiety aboard instead?
Not really, there's a variety of groups that get posted. There's also more girls posting there than you'd think, especially during recent years/months.
Recently there's been lots of talk about insider info on BTS there, someone claims to have read sources from forums about rumors of the different members and some rumors end up being right. I actually learned a lot about kpop and idols by regularly posting there and it can be pretty fun, just ask something and usually someone will join/engage with you.
No way I'm going to wade through all the perverts for the occasional actual discussion, it's still overwhelming about the girls on 4chan.
I spent most of my time as a kpop fan on kpsm2 and it's various iterations. I dont like it much now but it was good back in the day.
Sighs, if only the groupthink on reddit isn't so strong.
Would there be an audience for a kpop critical sub on reddit I wonder?

She clearly wanted to leave CUBE in order to get a contract where she had more control or benefits as a veteran artist. When you're already established, it's easier to leverage your popularity and negotiate with different companies for contract length, creative control, percentage of income derived from music sales and CFs/brand deals, sometimes their contract entitles them to stocks in the company (so they are invested or own a small portion of the company), sometimes they sit on a board of directors or have other executive roles behind the scenes. These types of negotiated contracts are only for veteran artists that companies want to retain or pick up after their original idol contract expired. In Hyuna's case, there was lots of speculation as to what Cube offered for her to stay after dismissing the rest of 4minutes members. But whatever it was, it wasn't enough for the long term and she clearly realized she made a mistake.
I think people forget that Hyuna is still close to her old WG members like Sunmi, she's actual best friends with YeEun. She witnessed the success they had going their own way with new companies. YeEun is very vocal and honest about her relationships with other idols. She's also generally critical of the idol industry which is why she was the first female artist signed under her current indie label and is into third-wave feminism. There's no way Hyuna isn't influenced by her best friend (they've actually said that they skip small talk and discuss personal issues together and will call each other in the middle of the night). I'm pretty sure making her relationship public and leaving the company for greener pastures was inspired by her friends.
Anyways, she's always been a very strong personality and rumors of her sexuality/dating have proliferated since she was literally 14 years old. She's always pushed the wild girl-crush concept even as a trainee and stated that she feels empowered by her sexuality many times throughout the years. Idk she's always been a sort of proto-feminist but now I think she takes her sense of agency seriously. Her music/image might be a bit more experimental under her new company, but i'm anticipating more of the same old Hyuna. All in all, she'll be fine.
>her sales were declining even before the dating became public
Sales are non-existent for all female soloists. It's an industry-wide thing. The only exceptions would be BoA and Lee Hyori from the early 2000s but those were different times. To be fair, I Think Hyuna was actually the leading female solo idol for a few years. In any case, female idols are lucky if their singles do well in downloads, their physical sales never take off and there's no chance for concerts/tours. They mainly make money from appearances, short performances and CF deals (like Sunmi as the face of Dior).

there is this account making jokes about bts' dead grandparents, them passing out and shit and they recently tweeted this. it just looks like a troll or a ratmy attempting to make blackpink fans look bad but armys eat it up as if bighit is going to sue someone with 20 followers for making a joke on twitter
She might be fine but what about her boyfriend and Pentagon?
Edawn might produce her songs and somehow make a living off of that but Pentagon except Hui is fucked. They haven't built a solid fandom yet, their album sales aren't getting any bigger, and new people probably won't join the Pentagon fandom because of this mess. I don't know if she anticipated that this would happen to them, but she's been in the idol industry for years now. Honestly it just felt very immature on her part, taking down the careers of other people because she wanted to "tell the truth" or whatever bullshit reason. All she had to do was lie low until promotions ended and those stupid sexual assault rumours would go away - they weren't even close to being actual allegations anyway. But she couldn't even do that. And now thanks to her, those Pentagon boys have lost whatever momentum they gathered from Shine.
Also she already had plenty of freedom under Cube image wise (she does like dressing sexy onstage even if the songs aren't to her taste), I don't see what more she could have gotten from them that they weren't already giving her. She overplayed her hand, thinking she was above the company, and it bit her in the ass plain and simple.

Idk if all this is true but I'd love to see what's going on behind the scenes in yg
If this is true and I put my tinfoil hat on: Jennie helps with some songs but since YG just wants blackpink to a group of 4 pretty girls singing about having fun fun fun wile being dumb dumb dumb, he's trying to hide it.
Semms pretty fucking stupid and selfish though. Because whenever an idol "helps in the writing of songs", they're praised.
there’s honestly no reason for yg to claim no aren’t writing if they are. misogynist ceo isn’t going to change that getting to call them a self producing group would be beneficial. boygroups jumped hard on writing producing after bigbang got popular for it, see how tvxq were making their own material from about 2005 but barely any of it got released until 2008. having a member who at least writes lyrics is bordering on mandatory now, it isn’t enough to set them apart anymore when so many do it. compared to that, there’s still relatively few big girl groups who make their own songs other than a token acoustic guitar b-side - it’s rare enough that it’s something pretty notable, but within a couple of years that could change and it’ll just be another thing expected of them. ikon would be nowhere without a solid producer in them, having bp framed as so multitalented that they also write would take down one of the biggest criticisms of them which is that they’re just models who perform sometimes.
even a shithead of a ceo is going to see an easy way to make bank and realise nothing comes of downplaying their involvement in the music. honestly i think she might have just changed a line or two and thought the low bar for a co-writing credit would include that.
This song is SO bad and cheesy. I though YG had more "badass" concepts what is this? I will never understand why kpop groups can't stick to a genre. This is so diferent from their previous tracks, it's terrible. How is alienating the fans you already made (that liked previous songs and would hate this) profitable? Also the styling and look of the MV reminds me so much of BTS's latest MVs and I hate it.
What's the black haired guy called? Because he's really frightening. I think he beats every other plastic idol besides that weird looking one from that rookie group. Can't remember the name.

It's jinwoo. He straight up looks like Jhorse's rip-off with that nose
Gayoung from Stellar just came out and confirmed Stellar was whored out at least "visually" by their agency.
"On December 10, Insight met with the former Stellar member at her cafe in Seoul. Gayoung, who runs a cafe business following Stellar's disbandment, opened up about the hardships she faced during 7 years of Stellar promotions.
Gayoung said, "At the beginning of our debut, our concept was close to cute. We received a lot of attention because we were a group produced by Shinhwa's Eric." However, Stellar did not do well for 3-4 years. The group ultimately left Eric's agency and decided to release "Marionette" with a sexy concept.
The MV producers demanded a member to "weakly leak the milk while drinking it."
The member simply followed the directions but the scene was edited in a sexual format. Gayoung said, "I was very shocked. The member who drank the milk was 20 years old at the time. She couldn't drink white milk since then due to shock. She was hurt. We really did not know it was like that (during filming)."
Gayoung continued, "During 'Vibrato,' they demanded us to wear provocative clothing on the day of filming. We told them we absolutely cannot dance in that but they said, 'Just do it. Why are you complaining without even trying?' So after taking only 5 cuts, we said, 'See, it's too provocative.' But those photos went on the album.
Gayoung revealed, "When we told them, 'We don't want to do this,' they said, 'You better think of the contract with the agency.' At a young age, we were scared of that. We were afraid that we would have to pay the violation fee."
Stellar is a memory Gayoung wants to erase. She said, "I don't want to go back." To the people who dream of becoming an idol, Gayoung said, "If you are trying out of curiosity and because the idol world seems fabulous, I want to say don't do it. If it's your dream then work die hard for it. If you did work hard but it didn't turn out well, don't think of it as a 'failure.' Just find a path that suits you better."
She doesnt mention the dances in which the group members literally get felt up by their back up dancers so Im expecting their to be more milk there. Hope she doesnt get sued. Kpop needs to be thrown away tbh.
That butt rub is the funniest shit I've ever seen lol and you can't tell me the member didn't realize what the "milk" was supposed to represent at 20 years old like come on?
Some of these agencies are so gross damn, I have no problem with sexy dances but if the members are super against it,it's really terrible to force them.

Some context: apparently a bts fan was doxed on twitter by blackpink stans and there’s a shitshow going on.
I hope you're saying 'jesus christ' at how dumb that so called research is>attributing all consumer export growth to BTS>only stated figure is 1 billion for those exports and the other couple of billion has no mentioned source
I guess we should all just forget every single other contribution ever made by the decades old hallyu wave because clearly BTS is to thank for everyone who buys bb cream now. Japanese hallyu fans have been milked too hard for too long to be disregarded like this.
Why do I feel like bighit is spreading all this shit to feel validated(paying people to be more accurate)? What's his point? Is this done to cover up shit that we don't know about?>>341544>>341368
Is Kpop starting the "I look like a crack head" trend or what? That winner dude with yellow hair reminds me of the infamous ecstasy-dawn(e-dawn)
Big Hit does this all the time, I remember a few months back there was some news about alleged financial troubles which got buried quick by them releasing info about BTS renewing their contracts and Jin buying an expensive apartment.
If there's news about how much money BTS is making, that's definitely a move to cover up Big Hit's monetary troubles by mediaplaying that everything is fine, because look at how rich BTS is!
Speaking of Ikon - Blinks were also using BI not being credited for BP's "Whistle" as an example of YG's oppression when BI himself said that all he did was suggest some chord changes, which isn't nearly enough to get a songwriting credit.
Also using BI as an example is just weird because he has writing credits for literally every Ikon song and can probably live off of Love Scenario's royalties alone for the next five years or so.
Misogyny is definitely rampant in YG but if Jennie had made some sort of meaningful contribution beyond suggesting a lyric here and there, YG would make sure to mediaplay it to the heavens about how talented his Chosen One is. This isn't adding up IMO
someone: i don't like you.

It's looking different to me, but not in a nosejob way. Tinfoil hat on: I think she might be snorting coke, they both look like they do drugs anyway, and I doubt that the kpop scene is drugs-free.

Wow she looks so much better there. Didn't know she was Chinese, she looks super Japanese in that photo actually.
Most idols look so much better with some color and not that white paper skin. I'm a super pale redhead and I still look warmer than them. They just look sickly.>>342243
Are they uploading like 10 photos a day? So obnoxious, who would had though Hyuna would be the annoying "I love bae" type that uploads daily about their partner. They really look bad for each other, I bet if they didn't have a relationship they would be better off. They just give me real crackhead, together until the end even if we're a terrible couple vibes.
I saw the Shine MV the other day and got a bit sad, I really liked Pentagon and Edawn was an essential member; I even kind of liked his sickly look until he went 100% with it during Triple H last comeback.
I hope Pentagon gets another hit and they forget about him. The other members are super talented and deserve more attention.

there’s a chinese unit called vision coming up and the members involved there seem to be pretty close. three rookies who aren’t official members yet are going to be part of it so we don’t know much about them, but the other chinese members hang around each other a lot and seem very close. makes sense when they speak the same language in a foreign country with varying korean skills.

i like loona and i'll most definitely take pleasure in watching their rise and fall (don't when that'll occur :/) but i cant help but feel their company is really fucking stupid when it comes to promoting them, and choosing Vivi to still be in the group after her botched PS. I'm pretty sure she was casted when she looked like >>342282
and not like an old Granny.
The only thing I can congratulate Loona's company on doing is efficiently creating a hivemind mentality for their international fandom (theyre all over twitter), dedicated fans who'll go to every fanmeet, and drop money to meet people they'll never truly know.
But then again, that's the entire goal of Kpop, right?

looking it up on twitter, i might be wrong but they are saying that a korean site posted an article with some random fan's selfies and tried to spread a dating rumor. it's not real
trying to pick up groupies from twitter or their fancafe sounds pathetic but i wouldn't be surprised if he tried to contact some fans he found hot on private
It's that or he felt the need to say it to validate ARMY. I mean, can you imagine the fallout if he said he didn't want to see them? Lol>>343054
Dang they're cute. They actually look different from one another too. Hope it goes well for them.

Go to your own thread, jesus fuck. And who cares if they're cute, you pedos.>Don't fangirl
Also, it's not going to go well for them because SM can't into Chinese groups, because NCT's concept sucks in general and it's never going to work like AKB48 and because nobody really cares about them.
On an unrelated note, Seulgi's hair is really looking like shit.

I agree, this thread is anti kpop and people seem to forget that they have another thread to drool about their faves instead of coming here and try to bash other artists just because they aren't their oppas…ffs
the first post was an objective response to a question about them so it was perfectly on topic, retard. posts like >>343109
shitting themselves in rage and adding nothing to the discussion is the kind of hatesperging that ruins these threads, not neutral discussion.>using pedo as an insult
this is shatmy levels of infantile behavior.

Those twinks from NCT freak me out, they all look the same. Is like SM build a machine with the same face characteristics.

mfw the group filled with xenophobes, anachans and wrist cutting emos preaches about self love
>>343286>Anti Kpop doesn’t mean we Only have to bash.
Except for the fact it does. If you want to fangirl about the NCT kids, go ahead. In the K-Pop thread, that is. There's plenty of people like you there.
Please, don't get mad, it's just K-Pop. We're all here to have good fun, aren't we? You just have to know where.
And NCT still sucks ass.>>343280
Look up NCT Dream.

Too many nct members remind me of kim jion kek, have they all fucked with their jaws? I swear exo and shinee dont look like this

Mark has got to be the ugliest.
Also I can't imagine they're earning much considering that they have to split their money between 18 and that they're flopping.
>>343289>anti kpop means hate only!!!
except these threads have been called kpop critical for many, many threads now specifically so people would be able to have critical, nuanced discussions about kpop without hatespergs like >>343109
shitting it up every time someone tries to discuss something without having to insert insults into every sentence.
these threads would just be people spamming ugly pics or jimincel and jhorse if they were still strictly anti and not critical. just because something isn’t frothing hatred or a hurl of insults doesn’t mean it’s fangirling.

It's his lips. His cupid's bow is extremely weird. I think he's even pointed out how freaky it is before.

Taeyong? He's definitely had some PS. I'm no expert but looking at his predebut pics I'd guess eyelid surgery and maybe something on his jaw. Everything else seems to be the same.
i was referring to objective posts like >>343054
not the ones calling them cute. but even then those positive comments were blown way out of proportion; at least those anons only mentioned it in passing and weren’t sperging out like the anons who got butthurt over them.
mentioned the hatesperging makes the thread look as deranged as the stans we make fun of. it’s embarassing.

is it just me or are male idol anachans offered way more compassion and concern than female ones?
donghyuk from ikon was used as more or less a horror story and a member openly admitted to forcing him to eat. meanwhile wendy mostly seemed to get a bunch of yaaas qween’s and fangirls screeching about her “””abs””” uwu!!!
both cases are horrific and seem to be about as bad as each other but they were received so differently, both by k-fans and i-fans.
