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.

No. 337035

Im so baffled as to how blackpink have like what, 10 songs total in 2 years? i know twice debuted a year before bp but theyve shit out so many songs in comparison. Youd think yg would want to milk bp for all they're worth since they're fairly popular. It just makes no sense to me

Exo fell out a long time ago that's why they can't keep up. Idol actors/actresses can't act for shit. BTS is a tired ass flop, full of pennywise looking clowns. Kpop ships are to satisfy crazy LGBT SJ fags. All kpop songs are the same, there's no song that can be differentiated from the other. Winner flopped after that member left. Ikon's music sucks. Most GG music sucks ass. Seventeen's music is Chainsmokers 2.0 so there's nothing great about that. 90% of kpop idols look like shit with zero talent.

It was the trend back then. Soon enough all the new concepts we see in 2018 will be a laughingstock in a few years. Just look back at 2009s concepts.

No. 337198

To support my argument:


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.

>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.

>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).

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.

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.

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

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.

No. 337771

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.

No. 337955

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.

No. 337961

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.

No. 337964

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

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

No. 337965


>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.

No. 337970

it really goes off with how koreaboos become so obsessed with korean entertainment they start to see korean culture as superior, that's why you see all these non-korean armys doing korean nationalism on bts' behalf for some reason. "they are proud koreans who don't need attention in the west", "he did this because it's korean culture", "they don't need to learn english, they are korean artists!"

No. 337974

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.

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

No. 337982

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.

No. 337984

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.

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.

No. 337985

IA. I also feel like this is also a result of the idol industry becoming strangely conservative. Like, I could never imagine, say, Twice and EXO doing something like this together. Boygroup stans and girl group stans were always at each others throat, but idols themselves tend to treat the other sex like ghosts, at least on camera. That's why companies like to produce their own curated content elsewhere. Keep the idols and their fans in a nice lil bubble.

Really tired of stans who are clearly not shawols, have never been shawols, and have never given the slightest fuck about SHINee (mostly ARMYs) using Jonghyun's suicide to ward off criticism of their idols. I just saw a comment about it on one of the lazy Jennie videos. How can people continue to be so disrespectful? All these stans want to preach about mental health and social justice and then shit all over Jonghyun for their faves, without even a shred of self awareness or irony.

"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."

No chance, they had hit songs but they had scandals prior to the bullying drama for being lazy and disrespectful to seniors, and they lacked the talent and personality that made SNSD members popular. Shinsadong Tiger could have given their songs to anyone and they'd have been popular, because t-ara themselves were mediocre.

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.

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.

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.

No. 338677


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

No. 338678

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

No. 338679

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.

No. 338680


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:

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.

No. 338681

personally i could tell stay, whistle, boombayah, PWF, and DDDD were "black" songs while aiiyl was "pink" side, at least i think they are? I think black pinks issue is that they just don't have big enough of a discography for there to be a clear difference of what is and isn't intended to be what. i think just in general the lack of experience and music is black pinks overall issue tbh

No. 338682

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?

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
do drugs
sleep around
are pedos
bully Or just have a rotten and nasty personality

She's built like spongebob but whether you like her face or not is subjective. Both of you stop.

She's really cute but the blue/green lenses need to go.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

lmao yes, those random movements and eye twitches can't lie. she's unlike her stage persona that yg forces onto her. it's so weird that kpop companies are forcing personas on their idols. i don't like hyuna but at least her dumb bitch persona is close to her real one

No. 339219

i don’t think it’s yg forcing an image as much as it’s her genuinely believing she can become g-dragon 4.0 if she just wears enough designer clothes and scowls a bit onstage. she seems like she believes her own hype more than the other members and it makes her the least likeable. rosé and lisa might make their voices sound cuter to seem more uwu smol but they still don’t feel like they take themselves as seriously

No. 339231

>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.

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

No. 339280

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?

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.

But "mental health" and "mah depression" sells, and that's something I've noticed specifically about this group when compared to others.

I hope my comment wasn't insensitive to those who do have issues, but whenever companies and money are involved I take pause.

No. 339347

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.

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.

The reason idols do the crying crap is because in Korean culture, humility and self deprecation is a huge part of "manner". This is why they constantly apologize and are ott for stupid shit all the time. Took a shit without telling the fans? BETTER APOLOGIZE! Dont bow at a certain degree? YOU'RE A HORRIBLE PERSON. Criticize someone who is older than you for literally anything? PIECE OF SHIT NOW YOUR BAND IS GONNA BE OSTRACIZED UNLESS YOU APOLOGIZE OR THEY KICK YOU FROM THE GROUP. Etc. In these cases its a feeling of the fans having ownership, as people have described previously. The fans control the votes(lol except thats bullshit because payola or "sajaegi" in korean is a thing) so therefore you owe them humility and tears and your life. In the world of kpop, a fan is on the level of an "elder" or ceo in their own way. And showing tears is a way of saying "We owe you everything because our life revolves around these votes and only YOU can help us get them". This leads to the fans having such big heads and thinking they own the idols. Its a fucked up cycle thats part Korean culture and part industry culture. Its one of the reasons I will never beleive an idol can be truly happy. Despite how much money they eventually make.

Kpop’s peak moments were 2009-2018, and I don’t see it being able to last decades the way western music is able to do. Then again who knows?

Little OTT but I need to rant.

So some idiot tweeted 'Never forget SM donated x to Jonghyun's foundation. This is why I stan SM'. And I'm thinking you stupid, delusional, ignorant piece of shit. Jonghyun gave almost half of his life to SM. Donating to his foundation is them doing the bare fucking minimum.

I remember watching BN last year where Jonghyun was like 'I'm not planning on releasing any new music this year. I'm going to rest and focus on my health. Even if Lee Sooman calls I would tell him the same thing'. Next thing you know he's promoting, doing agit concerts etc. Even up until his death he was doing some or other shit.

Is SM directly responsible for his death? No, but they weren't helping the situation. Knowing what they knew about him and his mental state, would they have ever given him a year off to get inpatient treatment or something? Hell no because they'd be losing money. The only way he would've gotten a break is if he had a failed suicide attempt and even then he would probably have to do some show as soon as he got out of hospital.

I don't understand how people thought he was okay. Yeah he looked healthy physically but for the whole of 2017 he looked so exhausted. I'm not blaming SM but if we're being honest, their lack of giving a shit about their idols was definitely a factor as well as lack of awareness within that whole society. But people will tell themselves whatever they need to sleep better at night.

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…

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.

the story would be interesting if it stopped with the amnesia, but ofc there has to be cancer and other overly dramatic shit. when i liked bts i only read one fic because it was really well-written and i was waiting for a logical ending, but at the end of it the rape victim fell in love with the rapist and they lived happily ever after. i had no idea that this shit is popular in fanfiction, at least in my language, idk about english but it's probably the same

No. 339648

Technically they are not causing any physical harm but literally any human would be disturbed by someone writing about or drawing them getting raped. Their oppars and unnies wouldn't want to be around anywhere near them if they knew who they are and what they are doing.

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?

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.

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.

There's so much problematic stuff in kpop to call out without resorting to pearl clutching.

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.

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.

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.

What do you guys consider to be Western or Korean beauty standards when it comes to idols?

This may sound weird but I personally consider western beauty standards to be "look healthy and alive", and korean beauty standards are sometimes the same, but even idols like seolhyun or tzuyu or jihyo they praise for being healthy aren't healthy at all, so I'll say "look dead but make it fashion"

The only idols that look healthy and most likely are are Hwasa and some of the girls from Loona since their company actually lets them eat and be different sizes.

No. 340914

From my impression korean beauty standards for idols feel more like a checklist, idols typically need some specific traits to be considered beautiful

No. 340917

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.

No. 340918

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

No. 340921

>>340918 i think that's what they are aiming for, cutesy anime style but somehow with a mature look or fashion… mannerisms too from what I had seen… i feel like they're trying to imitate what made anime so popular and just try it on people instead on 2D characters… and just added the badass look when they're trying to grabbed western fans attention since they are usually the most vocal with wanting anything less cute and leaning to the sexy side… idk if what im saying makes sense.

No. 340944

While the west has it's own standards of what is considered beautiful (we seem to be slowly moving away from the Kardashian fad yayy), there's definitely more wiggle room and I don't feel as though I'm held to a checklist or that I'll be made fun of for not getting butt implants. Korean beauty seems to be a contradiction, be cute but not too cute, be sexy but don't wear a low cut top. But I do agree with the other anons, it feels like their ultimate aesthetic, whether it's intentional or not, is to look like a waifish anime character.

No. 340954

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.

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.

So Hyuna is working on new music. Who's going to give a fuck about it though, her sales were declining even before the dating became public. She hasn't been musically relevant for ages now and Cube's real moneymaker is BTOB, with G Idle on the rise. Cube will do just fine without her. The only ones I feel bad for are Pentagon, they were on the rise before this and now they're done. It'll take a miracle or a Shine 2.0 for them to breakthrough

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).

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.

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.

No. 341505

Or she's fucking lying and staff is trying to cover her shit up in case someone that actually writes/produces the songs says something differentlol

No. 341506

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.

No. 341511

Kek mte. I mean YG usually has no qualms letting his artists overstate their involvement, but his MO has always been promoting his idols as superior creative artistes and not just mere idols. If she was really writing at all, it would be milked for media play non stop.

No. 341544

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.

For some companies/groups, it’s just throwing shit at the wall until something sticks and makes money. A more extreme example of this is MINX rebranding as Dreamcatcher when their original concept was a flop. Tbh, it just adds to the artificialness of the whole genre.

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.

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

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.

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.

that's the funny thing with exo-l and army fights, they both won't ever accept that maybe their faves aren't the most talented performers on earth. no one in bts can sing, d.o and chen are okay singers so i'll give them that, no one in both groups is a good rapper (or dancer, except like 2-3 of them). both groups made it big for their marketing, not their talent

Jungkook said in a group chat with a bunch of armys that he wants to see their selfies, thus the hashtag was born soon after
I don't really think that's an important aspect anymore, blackpink and nct are some of the most popular kpop groups at the moment, but even their fans know how disastrous the members relationships are. I think exo do actually try to come off buddy buddy (the amount of fan service they do), but they're just shit at it (they seem so stiff and fake anytime I watch a video of them)

Makes sense, even smaller groups get super cliquey I can’t imagine NCT avoiding that when members just keep getting added. Slightly OT but I wish NCT Dream would just be a fixed unit, I don’t know how they’ll stay popular if all the members are eventually swapped out, imo their group chemistry is good so it seems counterproductive to split them up.

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

No. 343202

They spent $2 million on their debut, those girls need more fans than loud Twitter stans or else they'll be "companions" to sleazy rich men very soon. 50k albums is really good for a rookie group but they're going to need Mamamoo or GFriend's success to make any money

No. 343203

He can barely speak English so those pickup attempts must've been as tragic as the ones average Korean men use on foreigners with KKT accounts. I don't think he messaged anybody - I scrolled through that tag and honestly couldn't find one remotely hot person, not one.

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.

I don't know what it is with nct, but pretty much all the members either creep me out with their faces, or I just think they look ugly.

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.

Not to derail the copypasta faces of NCT but I don't get the appeal of Taemin's face. There's something really unsettling about it that bothers me. I think it might be with width of his mouth, but I could be wrong.

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.
