still reminds me of the first time that one member of BTS sang a song from charlie puth and armies spammed the fuck out of his social media and the comments under his music video talking about him and how he was so much better or how they should collaborate and shit like that. i would legitimately be embarrassed if my fans harassed my "idol" to collaborate with me rather than the artist genuinely wanting to. tbh most of what BTS and kpop groups have gotten are due to their annoying ass fans spamming the fuck out of them. even their awards are due to whatever fan group can scream the loudest about how their precious bois deserve it.

if anyone else genuinely believes those kids aren't being abused they are stupid. it's a clear case of hierarchy and abuse that got them to shut up. tbh i wouldn't be surprised if abuse happens behind every kpop group and they were just willing to report it. there's always some story about a kpop idols hard journey to becoming one with hints of what sounds like abuse, or a form of it, here and there but their fans just say how they "worked hard" or were "strong." stupid.

The SM year-end stage was such a mess. The groups didn't even share a stage together. Stylists just threw shirts over Red Velvet's stage outfits for their performance with Hyoyeon and reduced NCT to Exo's backup dancers. This felt like a way to push NCT into everyone's faces again somehow.

Also, Sunmi seems to be taking her performance cues directly from stan Twitter and trying to incorporate as much fanservice as possible - Twitter will not shut up about the fact that Sunmi ran a hand across Seulgi's chest. Credit to her for keeping up the act after Gashina though, nobody knew who she was until last year and now she's lesbian queen or something.

When I say "no one" I do mean international stan Twitter, obviously the Korean public must have known of her because her previous solos did well too.

>It is definitely shitty that shes pandering though.

Full Moon and 24 Hours were also sensual and sultry but there was no queerbaiting of any kind. Ever since she decided to be more active on Twitter and reply to memes and such she's turned up the fanservice way too much. Her songs do very well in Korea now so I don't know why she feels the need to pander to stan Twitter, the annoying ones hyping her up won't even buy her albums

I don't think BTS will necessary decline so much as plateau. They have a rabid fandom to keep them relevant but they'll be where EXO is now. Twice on the other hand might not keep their relevance since they're all getting older and pedo uncles will move onto Iz*one instead, which has actual underage members for them to sexualise. Unless they change up their image and go "girl crush" real soon, it's curtains for them.

No. 345410

i don’t think bts will really decline much until there’s another group to take over for them. exo didn’t really decline in popularity that much but they got overshadowed by bts, i imagine it’ll be the same thing again. i’ve seen people argue that they’ll get owned once bigbang comes back, but at this rate bts are going to start heading to the army before seungri even enlists

twice passing their peak could be good for them, though. as long as a decent chunk of their fanbase stays loyal then they can change their music style and stuff, if they’re never going to have another cheer up then they don’t need to try.

i predict a couple of members leaving groups under negative circumstances. since bts have all re-signed, if one of the sadboy members wants to leave then they’ll either have to pay off the contract or go through a lawsuit. i see an nct member quietly leaving after being absent for a bit, maybe a red velvet member leaving. sm likes to try to divert attention from big scandals by debuting new groups or giving comebacks and their new gg should be ready to debut in 2019. re: sexist, racist etc scandals, wendy will make another insensitive comment, one of the bts sweet smol baby boys (ie v or suga) will say something incredibly shitty but fans will try to hide it, and a male idol with a bad reputation implies he likes a female idol with a good reputation, prompting panic and fanwars on all sides

No. 345412

The gap is getting smaller. Red Flavor might be RV's signature song but Rookie, Dumb Dumb and Power Up did very well on the charts and they now have the "nation's representative" tag after their North Korea performance. Irene's face is everywhere in Korea now and they have a large female following which will probably keep them afloat in the future. As for Blackpink, DDDD was a HUGE hit, numbers wise bigger than most of Twice's songs this year, and Jennie doing well also kept Blackpink's name in the spotlight by association. Plus the general public might get tired of the cute sound soon - 5 years ago sexy concepts were all the rage and it might come back full circle, who knows?

I'm just saying that Twice might be on their last legs now because they didn't experiment with their sound at all once they had a fanbase in place.

>Twice should start weaseling their way into variety/acting

This probably a big factor in Twice not having a longtime career; they don't have one member on the level of Irene or Jennie's fame in Korea. Tzuyu, Nayeon and Sana are decently well-known but JYP didn't capitalize off of that and give them more solo promotions since he got burned badly by the Miss A situation.

I agree with you on all accounts. I've also noticed that their fandom has calmed down a bit whereas BP's fandom is as obnoxious as ever. Makes me a bit sad because with BP and Twice being essentially 2ne1 and SNSD 2.0, I would've loved seeing an upgraded blackjacks vs SONE.

blackjacks vs sones drama was always so good, they managed to fight over everything. 2010-2013 was the peak, ironically it was less exciting when they had comebacks at the same time in 2014 since they both did nearly equally well and both groups started to crumble soon after.
>plastic surgery
snsd nearly all having work done vs bom's increasingly stiff face
>vocal talent
multiple non-vocal members vs not having a taeyeon level vocalist
boring, typical girl group dancing vs minzy seizures holding the group together
revealing, costumey outfits vs jeremy scott vomit

the last one was the best, since the i got a boy teaser came out and snsd were wearing entirely jeremy scott and js knockoffs. blackjacks were so smug over the fact that one of sones big digs at 2ne1 over the years was their ugly, mismatched street clothing.

Exactly. Trainees come to Korea and are expected to integrate within Korean culture, yet BTS comes to America expecting to be dominating the charts and media when the niggas won't even bother to learn English, and I mean all 7 off them, not just Ratmon and Junglebook.

They made most of their money through the American charts and streaming platforms, and just went oh! the #1 music industry in the world shockingly pays better than Korea.

ELF legit bullied a girl until she an hero'd. Which is why I think people saying Army/Exo-L are cancer is almost funny. Asian americans on twitter searching for some obscure german literature reference in their gay korean pop music fave's music videos may be cringey but it's so harmless lmfao
To be fair though, we all know that sm's groups always inherit fans from their seniors, so exo-l def have done a lot of messy shit, especially around their debut. With the influx of ex-1D fans army have been in shambles though. Funny how the exo vs bts situation almost reversed completely.

that story was really fucked up. the girl they harassed starved herself for three months and lost half her bodyweight and then had to deal with their crazed harassment.
This is a social media post of hers from pann-choa

>I'm receiving so many hate comments nowadays… ㅠ..ㅠ For real.. Does it makes sense that people are saying that I did plastic surgery? You think that all the swelling would go down in only 3 months? And if you're saying that I lost weight because I ate medication, then what are you making of the people who gain weight by eating medication? Also, to the people who purposely write these things anonymously… Until when am I going to endure all of this? Let's speak frankly, I have been starving day by day for 3 months, everyone knows it already no? It was during my period of growth so I even gave up on growing taller. Seriously, I really starved to death. At that time, I really felt that dying would be better so I went up to my rooftop a few times… I only drank 1-2 cups of milk every day and would go to the hospital every day because of anemia.. Ah~ I even got injection of dextrose. Seriously, to the people who have not put in as much effort as me, please don't talk without thinking. I'm still having a hard time because of anemia! Even now, I only eat 1 meal a day. Do you know why? Because I'm scared of the yoyo effect… So I'm still putting in so much effort now, so seeing how people just talk blindly about me like that… is just ridiculous. The world wants lookism so that's why it's so hard.. And what's the issue again this time?… seriously, what do you want me to do? Do you want me to kill myself? The eyes of the people who looked at the old me.. Do you know how I felt? They looked at me like a pig, not a human.. They thought that I should lose some weight, that I was delusioned into thinking that I thought of myself as being skinny already…….. It was seriously so hard.. I cried too.. I hated it. But now that I lost weight, you know what they say? That I lied….. That I'm so good at lying….. They say things like that… Seriously, how can they know how I feel if they are not me?…. This is seriously so hard…. I'm a human too… Really…

The black ocean was pretty much revolutionary in collective fandom hatred against a group. Every new gen group keeps fighting for victim points by saying they got a black ocean too when SNSD was the first and last group it happened to. Say what you want about them but the amount of hatred they got at debut is unmatched, all because they dared to joke around with men they trained alongside for ages and know well.

This. BTS doesn't need to worry about international armies ditching them for a different Korean group, they'll lose the majority of their crazed fans when another decent teeny bopper male group or soloist makes it big in the armies' country of residence.
BTS just got lucky. Armies aren't subtle about not caring about kpop as a whole, so it always confuses me when people think they'll move from BTS onto another Korean group. They renounce every other kpop act while not realizing that their favorite group is exactly the same.
I'm just hoping the time comes soon so I can stop seeing them everywhere. I don't know if it's sadder that I've seen BTS stuff in public where I live or that I know what BTS is

The Armies shouldn't be as cocky and arrogant as they are now. Let's see what they stan…a vocalist that astral projects his high notes into a different realm, another one that sounds like a dying grandpa,Jungle book's basic vocals, 3 sub par rappers and a cringy narcissist…y I k e s. Bts is the most fake deep,basic boy group alive and armies think that bts are on another level and they're really not. They're were just like every generic kpop group out there with their hip hop concept#1628363 and they still are honestly. If it wasn't for 1D and the whole B.a.p lawsuit thing Bts would be flops.

Also why is Bangtan so arrogant now too? Its starting to reflect in their music and how they present themselves. Like look at the lyrics for Mic drop..and adding your award speech as a track on your album is corny. After they won that dumb BBMA award Bts and Armies have become increasingly worse. I wish shitmies would understand that bts won that award bc armies are the most annoying people on twitter. There's a reason why they haven't won any awards for their music…As long as Armies are around and Bts doesn't bother to integrate and learn even basic English they'll never be taken seriously.

Like when they were touring the US back when noone in asia cared about them and someone threatened to shoot rapmonster and they had to cancel the concert? Pre-2017 was their entertainment peak and I suspect the moment wheb a lot of recovering stans in this thread used to care about them. The way they were whoring themselves out on youtube and twitter was, as we've discussed before, unheard of and really interesting. Now that there's so much money involved they've become extremely aware and boring. I cannot believe that kids are actually joining the fandom via promotion cycles like Fake Love or Idol.

I don’t buy that it’s exclusively YG fucking her over because even if he hated 2NE1, CL could still generate more money, Dara gets to do TV work so it only makes sense for CL to get something as the other profitable one. idk, it just seems like she can’t be helping herself stay relevant and popular if for half of 2018 she basically stopped posting online. anyone got a wild 2019 prediction for her? she reappears in February, married and pregnant? drastic plastic surgery?

A huge amount of them are ex weebs or ex 1D fans.

Idk about 5sos fans because 5sos are still together, but since 1D had fallen apart the 1D fans got tired of waiting around so they jumped onto the new bandwagon group, which was bts. The type of fans 1D attracted and now bts attract are girls who care more about the band members than the music. If 1D and bts didn’t have that yaoi shipping appeal, they wouldn’t have as many dedicated fans. Tbh I feel like even if 1D was still active they would lose a lot of their fans to bts because the bts members are younger and try to maintain their “perfect innocent boyfriend” image, meanwhile the 1D boys were starting to get crusty and two of them have children now.

Amber honestly just isn't talented in singing or songwriting. All her songs have really meh production and she doesn't have the vocal talent to elevate the mediocrity into something better, a good vocalist would know how to alter their voice to make it flow better with the beat but she's not got that kind of ability. Plus she's not pretty so she can't get away with her lack of talent.

She did well in variety shows and MC gigs, she should've stuck to that to earn money because her own music is nowhere near good enough and SM was right to reject it at first (they're only now letting her release it after she threw tantrums on Instagram).

Luna having a lot of talent and no fans to buy her songs also means visuals are everything; most FX album sales were thanks to Sulli, Krystal and Victoria fans.

If Zayn hadn't left they likely would have all announced a hiatus around 2017 instead of being in limbo in 2015, solidifying their fanbase for a little longer, and I doubt BTS would be able to take over international fans from 1D if the army influx had happened later.

I think a lot of people don't realize just how old bts actually are.
Jungkook - the uwu sm0l baby - is 21, V and Jimin are 23, Ratmon and Jhope are 24, Suga is 25 and Jin is already 26 (and still thinks "ironically" saying he's the most handsome dude in the world is okay).
Meanwhile Harry Styles is also just 24, but he's not acting like a retarded 10-year-old and nobody has been coddling him for years now. Same for other young american/euro celebs like Justin Bieber. They're just as young as kpop idols, they get massive hate, yet nobody thinks of this of as much of a tragedy like ratmys do.
Also, seeing bts on non-korean tv exposed their crustiness as well lol

I think that massive amounts of yellow fever is what made/makes them this popular. Tinfoil, but with the rise of popularity of social justice (in around 2015), young impressionable teens started being "woke" enough to no longer like white boys, but not yet "woke" enough to like somebody with darker skin and that's why they go after the tallest asian country, who at least acts as if they're super modern and who also happens to love to slather their faces with white powder.
Even japanese and chinese youtubers or instagramers are leaching off of that "Oppa" shit, by styling themselves korean inspired. Ratmys wouldn't care if the korean dude they get to date looks like golum, they wouldn't even care where exactly he's from as long as he's "azian". You can't go anywhere on the internet without being confronted with something korean, it's just the trend right now.

even fans of the same group get called antis for daring to voice criticism/opinions that aren’t blind praise.

the person who uploaded the lazy jennie video that went viral was a blink and even had a jennie pfp, and the video itself wasn’t malicious at all but rather seemed concerned, both for her and the other members since she’s basically a deadweight at this point. of course they got cursed out and called an anti by rabid blinks who decided any fan who didn’t turn a blind eye to her sloppiness might as well be satan. there were mature blinks who agreed and were respectful about it but they were drowned out by the insane drooling ones (who of course attacked them too). of course those same losers were celebrating like crazy when the video got taken down.

Top Kek

Has anyone noticed that a lot of anas (especially on Tumblr) are also big kpop (mainly bts) fans? I always sort of felt kpop/anorexia goes hand in hand? Like there's these young impressionable fans seeing their unnies and oppars looking skelly and talking about starving themselves and extreme dieting so they (the fans) do it too and end up with eating disorders. Kpop is so toxic.

No. 346052

I was just thinking that the other day. Bts doesn't give a flying fuck about their international fans which is top Kek bc bts owes all their success to i-fans now. Korean fans didn't even care about bts for the longest time until they started getting big in the West and was giving s.k some attention. There was this letter Jimin wrote to his Korean fans talking about how much he missed them and how badly he can't wait to come back to South korea. No mention or barely any mention of i-fans though and ofc armies were to blind to see the truth. I can't find it but if I do I'll post it.

No. 346212

EXO have enough of a fanbase to keep buying 500k+ albums, they're just not a "trend" anymore. That's just the natural order of things - what's worrying for SM is that they don't have a replacement trendy boy group lined up like they used to have (TVXQ -> SuJu -> Shinee -> EXO). That spot is currently occupied by BTS and NCT is doing shameful numbers compared to their seniors. EXO were outselling Dome concerts 2 years into debut while NCT songs drop out of charts within an hour or so

No. 346220

I figured, I remember they were really popular when I was in high school so it's interesting looking back at them now. Lay was my favorite so when he wasn't showing up in MVs I started to loose interest in the group.

I was thinking the same thing. At this point, they're just a cash grab.

>>346223 he really can't sing…omg…

No. 346234

I don't think the new group will flop at all. It's like the 1D and 5sos situation, the EXO and NCT one. Girls especially younger girls want to stan and look up to people (or hope to date and fuck someone) who's closer to the age. The younger portion of armys will move on to the new bg, and the older ones will remain old and bitter bc they're oppars never got good treatment.

Especially since Bighead's new formula is "depressed boys who may be gay"

Who knows the new group just might be miles ahead of BTS and they might even all speak English for promoting in the US since there is only 5 members this time around.

No. 346237

Lay's kind of odd-looking but I think he's a far better dancer than Kai and a lot more naturally sexy.

When I was a tween, I thought he was cute because he didn't seem like a try hard, which appealed to my weird ass sensibilities at that time. He was definitely cuter than Kai since he seemed comfortable in his own skin where as Kai seemed like he was being someone he wasn't.
At some point I could see him doing that, everything has to end at some point.

No. 346259

100% agree. Plus I think if he leaves hell get a lot of back lash like Kris/Tao/Luhan did and they'll probably dub him a traitor or some other dumb shit

No. 346260

I think Lay won't formally terminate his contract so he'll technically still be an EXO member, but at this point that's all in name only. SM is giving him a lot of benefits right now so I don't think he'll leave, but he probably won't be in an EXO comeback anytime soon

No. 346261

Kris got the most flack since he was the first, Luhan had a much calmer send off because it was pretty soon after Kris and people were expecting at this point, and no one gave a shit about Tao leaving since he was a prissy bitch that didn't contribute much.

No. 346262

Considering that Kris and Luhan are China's biggest stars right now, SM fucked up big time in not trying to keep them in Exo so they could have a share of their enormous earnings. All they had to do was treat them like human beings.

No. 346264

Didn't they settle in court that SM would get a percent of their earning for a certain amount of years?

No. 346269

I think a Chinese court ruled that the order wasn't enforceable as long as they never set foot in Korea? IIRC they only owe SM a share of their Korean earnings and SM contracts anyway give artists a bigger share of foreign income (70-30 internationally).

Not much SM can do in China, they have no power there. It's likely they're not getting anything beyond a token 5% if even that.

No. 346271

Ah okay, that makes sense, I remember hearing that they had settled and that was about it.

No. 346272

No. 346274

didn’t kris leave right after their comeback or right before concerts or something? in general an idol is going to get bigger backlash if they abandon their group after a lot of preparation and rehearsals have already been done to include them. jessica even got shit for being kicked out of snsd before they had a video released, because it meant they had to rerecord it without her in it

No. 346275

I think Jessica wasn't kicked out so much as had to leave as a consequence? Apparently they were trying to scare her into stopping her Blanc & Eclare work by making an empty threat of kicking her out, which they weren't really going to follow through on, but she panicked so much that she wrote that Weibo post saying that she'd been kicked out. So SM booted her out anyway for tattling.

No. 346276

I remember hearing that him leaving during their comeback was due to a heart condition that developed during his training period and only got worse the longer he stayed. I don't know if that was something created by fans but a friend of mine had mentioned he had been hospitalized a few times because of it.

No. 346277

last i heard was that she’d confirmed with them that she was leaving snsd soon and was under the impression she could do b&e until then but was then kicked out way earlier than she was meant to be leaving. i kind of buy it since if she wanted sympathy from sones then saying that she was planning on leaving the group soon anyway would make her seem like less of a victim

No. 346278

I don't doubt that SM treats Korean and foreign trainees differently. Their order of priority is Koreans >> foreign-born Koreans >>>>>>> foreigners. It's highly possible that Kris, Luhan and Tao were forced to dance through injuries and health conditions.

No. 346283

Yeah, I heard that Tao had to perform with a leg injury and Lay with a back or waist injury. The fact that stans still support the kpop industry knowing that their precious oppars are being treated slightly better than cattle is pretty dumb. Some of their justification for it is "oh, it will make oppar sad and the company will treat them worse lolz"

The concert tour they were about to go on was supposedly like a goodbye tour for Jessica. The plan was that after the tour, they'd all split up and move onto solo activities, and Red Velvet was supposed to debut around early 2015 then in a changing of the guard (dunno how reliable this is but someone on Allkpop claimed that SM executives were asking music shows to book performance slots for their new girl group slated to debut in early 2015)
Then Kris left and Baekyeon was revealed, so Red Velvet debuted earlier than expected as a distraction.

in 2014-15, every Red Velvet comeback was around the time of some shit going on with SM:

1) August 2014, Happiness - Kris left, Baekhyun and Taeyeon were revealed, Sulli went on "hiatus"

Oof that is interesting, and convenient. I thought the whole BakeYeon thing was rather convenient but didn't think Red Velvet's timing was most to distract fans.

No. 346292

kris also left in the middle of a comeback while luhan waited until they weren’t promoting anymore. i remember a lot of exo stans bashing the former because he screwed the other members over and put them in a very messy situation while they respected the latter for not “leaving the group in the ditch” the way kris did.

tao got flack for being a huge hypocrite who threw a clingy tween girl tantrum on social media when kris left only to do the exact same thing shortly after. iirc tao also left around the time exo were supposed to have a comeback making him look like an even bigger hypocrite.

I actually believe that EXO's situation had not a lot to do with RV's obviously rushed debut. It was more f(x)'s, the fact that a lot of their earlier stuff sounded straight like from the Electric Shock album speaks for this and the trainees in the Happiness MV were kind of hinting at an NCT-like concept. I guess when SM realized SNSD and f(x) were over they weren't up for experiments anymore, added Yeri and called it a day.

No. 346305

There was a theory that they'd branch off into subunits called Blue Velvet and Yellow Velvet (topkek). The Red/Velvet concept dichotomy was also kind of thrown together last minute to explain the group name when it was glaringly obvious that SM had no fucking clue what to do with them and didn't want Irene and Seulgi to leave.

You should have seen the comments under their debut announcement tweets and videos, 50% of them were f(x) fans whining about lack of proper treatment and the other 50% were SNSD and EXO fans demanding an explanation from SM instead of debuting a new group.

Panda express shamefully using bts for clout

No. 346313

is this a serious post?? nobody cares about this. companies use trends like this for advertising all the time. and bts arent sad about being """""used"""" for clout. theyre probably calculating how to get a sponsorship with panda express right now. now please, delete this post, go back to twitter, and then delete yourself, in that order.

No. 346317

Yeah, I remember now. I also wonder if them dropping those plans has anything to do with them seemingly being unable to hold female trainees for a long time. All the girls from the smrookies days sans seulgi and irene have left the company while all the boys are in NCT. lol I also cannot believe that, out of all the trainees, Yeri was the one they added. They were either desperate or her family helped out.

No. 346318

Probably a combination of both. I honestly don't think Yeri at the time was ready to debut simply because she had no talent. Couldn't sing, her rapping is garbage and as for her dancing I'm not sure but I never hear anybody mention it so idk. As for now I don't know if she improved bc I don't follow red velvet. She also gives me bitchy vibes.

god i hated that cover. red velvet stans got really pissy about the taeyong rap and made versions editing it out, but at least his rap was just as bad as in the original, where it was already the worst part of the song. rv butchered the much more charismatic ses version, the only reason fans have to defend it is the usual weird leap in logic that means women in fitted suits = totally kweer concept

No. 346325

No. 346326

True. Yeri gets shit on all the time for her dancing and RV were called out regularly for being unsynchronized, but I think it's more of most of the members not being able to follow the choreography and being very very overworked. They had like 6 comebacks this year and are SM's sole female earners (sans solo artists but I doubt SM are actually making any profit with those except for Taeyeon). As for her being a bitch - I don't know, I believe she's like Jennie in the sense that she does enjoy fame to a certain extent and the glamour it can bring with it but is disillusioned about idol life. I wish kpop companies would stop debuting literal children, it's always stumping them in one way or another.

No. 346334

I’m not saying he hasn’t had work done, because I think he has, but he was still naturally a bit unusual looking. I’ve seen people say SM must’ve made him get PS to look like Jaejoong at his peak, but Jaejoong has his eyelids done, corners of his eyes clipped, something done to reduce his jaw multiple times and he’s on his 5th nose or something by now, while Taeyong hasn’t had nearly as much done.

Jennie’s undeniably cute at the very least but she pretty much looks SEA. If she weren’t actually Korean, she’d get shit on more for her looks and wouldn’t get as much special treatment as she does. No way would SK’s xenophobic ass accept an SEA-passing chick as the face of a group.

I feel like Irene wants to quit being an idol more than Joy does and would be the first to go. She’s in her late twenties and is in a group that performs with childish concepts. She’s basically RV’s visual ace but the oher members outperform her in every way, so so it’d be understandable for her to leave after some more CF deals transition into modeling.

No. 346363

I would argue that Yeri wouldn’t be the next sulli because she doesn’t have as strong of an individual fandom nor public recognition as much as Irene does. Sure Yeri gets bashed all of the time as an RV member but she also gets a ton of luxuries as one. No way would she make it on her own.

No. 346366

>>346363 not having a solid fan base hasn't stopped other people from leaving the group. Yeri is pretty much done with idol life just look at her on stage. She will definitely pull a Sulli. She's getting a lot of hate just like Sulli did before she left fx

No. 346370

Probably late but just saw this and what a mess. The dancing’s pretty sloppy, vocals are weak and maybe a few of the members in this can pull of sexy/sleek concepts. Tzuyu looks kinda scary giving off that vacant doe-eyed scare for this. Joy continues to be pushed as the sexy member but still doesn’t seem confident with her new role. Mijoo was good but SK thinks she’s a attentionwhore from a nugu group so the more popular members of this collab are getting showered with praise intsead. As for the others…eh.

Not to tin foil, but do you think that BH didn't shop those out because they're trying to appeal to "mah mental health sad bois" shtick. In the previous thread, someone had brought up how Bighit had put our a survey to see what their audience thought about certain topics, the main subject being depression and the like. Conveniently, their precious oppars start coming out talking about "mah depression," which won over the tumblr crowd. While I don't work in marketing, I do have some educational background in business and from a marketing standpoint, if your target audience would be move to buy/invest their time into your product then this would be a scummy yet effective strategy. I really hope JK isn't still hurting himself, I may hate kpop but it's still sad that someone would hurt themselves.

I'm >>346392 and totally understand where >>346396 is coming from, I completely forgot that depression is still taboo over in SK since I've been outside the KPOP scene for a couple of years. My initial thinking was because they were popular in the US that BH would pivot to what would appeal to the sad gurls over here, which mostly consists of identifying with celebrities that they have something in common with. Again, I have no proof, but it wouldn't surprise me since the main goal of a company is to make money and maintain a favorable public image, ethics will always take a backseat

Well said. Yeri’s strongest areas as an entertainer is visuals and variety, but Irene blows her and the rest of RV out of the water visually and Joy’s better at variety.

Unrelated but do any of you guys remember Yeri talking about how uncomfortable she was by the closeup of her cleavage in the Ice Cream Cake music video?

It goes back quite a ways and became very obvious, and idk what happened in like..2012 but that seemed to be when people at soshified started dropping hints that something was up.

Maybe Soy should come out and say what she knows since she literally posted that jessica was a bitch not long before she got "kicked" and then tried to backtrack when people realized it was Jessica she was talking about.

Tzuyu's eyebrows are unfortunate, they used to be much higher (pic related) and have been whittled down to nothing. Straight brows don't always look good on everyone.

Lucas was already naturally handsome but they insist on fucking up his face more and more - in every public appearance he has his lips and eyebrows blurred out with foundation and I don't doubt he's begun to do some Botox here and there. Tragic

They've also made her eyebrows start much farther, they used to be closer together and now there's a foot of space between them. So they're just short stubs that have been tattooed in.

No. 346719

Apparently they're under "Label V", and not explicitly SM Entertainment. Is there a reason for that? Is SM's name dirt now in China after what they did to the ex-EXO members?

Also the new group name doesn't have NCT in it at all; maybe this is a permanent lineup which will stay in China. Winwin might promote fulltime in this group now and leave 127 permanently - good for him, he now has a shot at fame in his own country I guess.

No. 346741

The only legitimately talented ones in RV are Wendy and Seulgi, Irene and Joy are equally talentless but they get less shit because Irene's visuals are popular (useful for CF money) and Joy was part of the original lineup at debut. I don't think Yeri is any more useless than them, I bet if she was part of the original lineup she'd be getting much less shit. Her fridge body is really unfortunate though

No. 346760

No, retard. It's because of legal issues and the rocky relationship between China and South Korea i.e. the Hallyu ban. Signing them under a Chinese partner label alongside the normal SM label gives SM more freedom for their promotions than it would to only have them signed under SM. Which means there's nothing barring them from promoting with the rest of the group.

Probably best for them to stick to China regardless, they'll make great money - way better than in Korea - at home.

they’ll never be a mainstream top boygroup, but i don’t think that’s the aim. they’re definitely going for strong, dedicated fandom > big public appeal which can still get a lot of money. as long as they push one or two members for variety work and stuff then they’ll be fine. the general public never fully warmed to super junior the way the did for shinee and tvxq for example, but they’ve survived just off of a batshit insane fandom rather than a massive one. i think sm’s next push for a proper mainstream nations group will be their new girl group

SM easily could have bought Big Hit anytime before mid-2017 if they wanted to. They could have had the merger right after BTS won their first daesang. They didn't, and are currently making loads of money off of TVXQ and Super Junior's tours and EXO, so I doubt they're bothered. Plus NCT China (whatever their real group name is) is probably going to be a HUGE moneymaker for them soon.

Jaehyun is by far one of the most popular members (rivaled only by maybe Taeyong and Mark) and has a ton of akgaes too. I’d say those three are the most likely to compete with Winwin. Yukhei doesn’t seem as popular in Korea as he is internationally but I could be wrong.

Jaehyun is more popular in Korea but since SM is pushing the international thing I doubt they'd limit voters to the Korean fans. Mark is not as popular as he's shilled to be.

The top looks so unfortunate and ridiculous. I'd be so damn embarassed if I were her. I get that she's the center but they really didn't have to make her wear that thing just to make her stand out… the others wore normal dark stage outfits suitable for the song. That spandex top looks cheap btw. It's like they forgot to bring Irene's stage dress and just took whatever available in the dressing room.

No. 347063

what’s her appeal again? she looks extremely average by kpop standards, yeri and joy are far prettier than her, seulgi has more charisma and wendy has the best voice + used to be prettier before sm fucked her up with surgery.

No. 347067

twitter stans will call a female idol a lesbian icon for sitting with her legs slightly apart, wearing a women’s suit, mentioning any female celebrity in any context not fitting beauty standards, fitting beauty standards perfectly, anything. i didn’t mind it until i realised some of them are completely serious about their beliefs and aren’t just joking or speculating a bit.

the worst for me is still when fans trying to prove uwu queer idols just end up playing into negative stereotypes like lesbians being predatory and out to harass every woman they see. sana’s been mentioned before as being bad for this, she’s one of the idols who’ll grab and stroke at and pretend to kiss another member who looks anywhere from mildly annoyed to genuinely uncomfortable. they also love using hani as an example of a lesbian idol because she was obsessed with one of the underage oh my girl members and kept talking about how much she wanted to date her. when she was on weekly idol she’d gawk at underage girls all the time, she’s a creep. and then she was dating xia for a while but that didn’t change anything

I remember they did it to almost every idol like it was so inconceivable to them that straight female idols exist. What was funny was how homophobic they were towards Amber. Apparently the L chat not only hates bisexual females, but also lesbians who arent uber femme or femme passing.

I wonder how many idols actually start out as saesangs.
I know that trinity girl was one and she got kicked from GLAM because of it, and Jisoo was writing fanfiction about raping some male idols before Lovelyz, but Im sure theres more.

No. 347243

YG’s never cared that much about dating scandals. They barely bother to confirm them and just say it’s the idol’s own personal life and has nothing to do with the company. Jennie might be popular but she isn’t popular because people want to date her, BP aren’t going to be in trouble over this. At most it just means definitely solo for Rosé and probably Jisoo and Lisa while fans cool down before the next group comeback. The only thing holding back BlackPink from being more consistent is that YG has some weird blood pact with Teddy so they can’t just pump out a mini album with 6 different producers on it

Idk I think you're giving YG too much credit for being restrained and calm. Jennie is his shiny new toy, he's not gonna take being blindsided by her well. Hopefully she survives this.

Do you really think he's blindsided by it though? They made barely any effort at hiding their relationship. Kai even picked her up at the yg building lol. dispatch always contacts companies to try and get money to hide the dating rumors so I'm sure they did the same to YG.

i don't see how this is detrimental to jennie's career? correct me if i'm wrong but blackpink has a lot of western/international fans, and i-fans tend to be really supportive of idols dating and love to criticize the shitty no-dating rule (ex: hyuna and edawn). they'd probably be able to fight off any hate she gets; look at how many people were willing to defend her terrible performing skills. not saying there won't be any backlash but i can't imagine it ruining her career

No. 347287


Dif anon, but I don’t think it’s detrimental either. Blackpink is hugely successful and it seems that the hyuna and e dawn thing kinda made more kpop fans less rabid about dating. I know i-stans on twitter are all being positive about the situation and I haven’t seen more than one k-stan negative reaction. Also, YG isn’t stupid, he knows blackpink is the money maker and he’s not going to ruin them over this. I’m willing to bet they just deny and ignore it and it’ll fade away. They had to know about it bc they were obvi contacted prior to the leak with a chance to stop it, he didn’t gaf lol.

2NE1 were a money maker to YG until they weren't just saying. YG absolutely does not give one fuck about Blackpink unless he needs their YouTube statistics to trot out. He didn't even post Jennie's first music show win on Instagram where he posted Mino's second place finish. He's going to use this as an excuse to delay their comeback for sure.

>They had to know about it bc they were obvi contacted prior to the leak with a chance to stop it, he didn’t gaf lol

Dispatch says the female idol's agency couldn't come to an agreement with them, so YG (the agency, not the guy) absolutely did try to stop it. It didn't work out because Dispatch and YG have always been on bad terms.

No. 347290

Has it finally happened? I-fans got big enough to permanently change the culture of the industry? tbh I hate it?

No. 347291

How many of those i-fans will buy BP albums though? Their Western fandom is not at the level of BTS and most of their international fans are SEA, who generally are all 13 mentally. Blackpink is a big enough group to bounce back from this for sure, but there will be some fallout. Maybe just not as much as expected since EXO are all old veterans now.

No. 347293

Ifans don't care because EXO has had multiple dating scandals before so they're all jaded. If it was a BTS member, now THAT would give great milk.

i don't want to be like "NO gay ship can ever be real ALL idols are STRAIGHT and you all are delulu" because it's close minded and i mean sure, there might be lgb idols but i really, really doubt that most of the popular ships like chanbaek, kaisoo, seulrene, jenlisa, michaeng, jikook, vkook that shippers believe in till death are real. if two members of the same group were dating and broke up, it would completely fuck the group up. i think if that rumor is actually true, it's probably a duo that most people would be surprised with

Half of the blink fanbase were also blackjacks before, so they know. Being pretty isn't going to stop YG from tanking Blackpink if he wishes, because time and time again he's shown that he does not give one fuck about women under his company.

SM confirmed the dating news right away because they do not give a fuck, while YGE has yet to put out an official statement beyond "we're looking into this", which means they're scrambling to deal with YG sperging out.

He's either in the cult or has views so similar to it that he may as well be.

Bogum is that cult's golden boy. As a rule, cults don't allow their members to socialize with regular sane people anyway, let alone their prized members who they've groomed from birth. One of the defining features of cults is that they cut you off from anyone not in the cult, but people believe Bogum is allowed to just be best friends with V anyway?

SM used to stage/leak relationships amongst their own idols but I never really got why, just knew people had been saying it like it was fact. I don’t know if it was an any attention is good attention thing or what because they used to do it with SNSD members when they were new and make sure certain pairings got attention, like Junsu and Taeyeon, or Leeteuk and Taeyeon, or Baekhyun and Taeyeon. Other couples that had more evidence to make it seem likely, like Jaejoong and Jessica, the jaw couple, were kept more quiet so it did seem like there was some kind of planning behind it.

Yeri and Taeyong has been a rumour for a while, think SM might have sacrificed one more established idol instead of two newer ones?

I guess it's kind of a tie right now. BTS have caught on with the general public because Koreans get off on the thought that the West now cares about them, and feel like BTS has made it so Korea is finally taken seriously by America.

If only Wanna One had been the group to garner international attention instead, but i-fans didn't give a fuck. They couldn't even give away tickets for their "world tour."

Bom and Dara were such bad dancers that 2ne1’s choreography was limited, but at least they tried hard, Dara especially. She’s a bad dancer, her voice is a whisper, she’s not naturally funny, but she’s managed to stay well liked because she always tries hard. 2ne1 aren’t the flawless, empowering, epitome of talent people think they are on reflection but at least as a group they didn’t get criticised for slacking off, CL just was more extra than the others

kai's bandmate is literally running around, publicly saying that he loves men and shamelessly posting pics with his sugar daddy. even though the baekyeon situation was sus, i don't think big kpop companies make their artists have beards or go to great measures to hide their sexuality. there are probably a lot of kpop idols who are closeted and choose to date the other sex because of homophobia, but talking about them is pointless.

i don't think any of his dating scandals are intentional. the one he had with krystal was the "worst" one, so because he already has had one dating scandal it isn't as shocking the second time around. black pink don't appeal to possessive male fans (like twice or izone), a dating scandal won't make them lose an impactful amount of fans. i don't think kai nor jennie had much to lose, or gain, from this. if one of the non-korean twice members were dating one of the most popular bts members the situation would most likely have impacted both of the groups very negatively. kpop fangirls love to live through the female idols their oppas interact with, until they actually start dating them for real.

i find it very interesting how much and how quickly kpop changed from 2008 to now

how it went from more relaxed beauty standards where people actually looked alive and not coke nosed and bloated yet malnourished and unrealistically pale as if they were going through the stages of death

there were more interactions between idols on shows such as idol army whilst now with the rise of social media that's kind of died down and the catering and recycling of western trends is even more obvious and lazy.

Not to mention it really seems as if all the newer groups are uninspired and boring af.

No one stands out. Variety is boring as shit and no idol actually seems to have a personality thats not scripted to hell. I feel sorry for anyone who became a fan of kpop after like..2014ish. AOA was the last "new" group I was really interested in and they're RIP. I liked Hello Venus when they redebuted and released some good dance pop but they died out too. There was a lot of different stuff and experimentation with different sounds. Lots of colorful outfits, videos and stage presence. Now if you like girl groups and want anything other than saccharine sweet pedo bait bullshit, your only option is like..Black Pink, Mamamoo, Dreamcatcher and Exid. No thanks. Red Velvet is kinda ok but they arent idol like at all in comparison to girl groups before them. And dont even get me started on plastic basic boring ass boy groups with their struggle vocals and lackluster dance skills.

There definitely are times when fangirl defense gets way out of control, but he just preaches way too much.

Kpopalypse is even worse because he has this deep-seated hatred for R&B and automatically rates R&B songs lower. He hates good singers for some reason because their vocals "don't allow producers to make good melodies" or something. He's also extremely triggered over Reddit not liking him, and screenshots "hate" comments from years ago to include in his blogs as proof that he's better than the plebs on Reddit.

Then in a Blackpink/YG thread he calls Blackpink's music dated and unoriginal and writes loads about why YG is horrible. He whined and bitched about Twice not getting #1 on all charts, but still tells everyone else to not take Kpop that seriously.

He really thinks JYP is "just a bit weird" and not at all shady when it's possible that JYP is just better at hiding his shit than YG and Lee Soo Man.

It's a xenophobic soft power thing. Other Korean groups make some effort to learn English when they try to break the West. There's dudes in Monsta X who seem to be halfway to fluent by now despite making next to no headway in actually breaking America.

BTS don't bother because Big Hit are hung up on pushing this idea that it's America who wants BTS, not the other way around. They desperately want to make people believe that BTS only bother with the West because people keep begging them to come here, even though BTS spent millions rebranding themselves to appeal more to an American audience.

No. 347935

I get being annoyed at the hypocrisy of it, but I can't help but be somewhat warmed by the fact that BTS doesn't HAVE to speak English to make it as far as they have in the west.

This has been discussed before. Speaking korean is part of their appeal. If their stans wanted something in english they would've waited for 1D to come back from the dead LMFAO

Because you going to Korea, expecting to be handed free asian dick just for being a foreigner without speaking the language is the same as slaving away in schools and tutoring to memorize shit to pass your university entry exams is totally the same.

>xenophobic soft power thing


> it's America who wants BTS, not the other way around.

Half true. BTS and Korea want the American recognition (don't believe what they and their stans say about this) but western outlets have long realized how much money can be made off of them. They don't even need to put in effort - just ask them "What's your favorite place to visit in America?", film it and put it on YouTube and you're done. Every generation needs its boygroup and this one's is BTS.

No. 347937

It's important to distinguish that America wants BTS's fans (or more accurately, the insane click revenue and mindless purchasing decisions they provide), not BTS themselves. Big Hit would like you to believe that American news outlets are giving BTS air time because of a genuine admiration for them and their music, not because BTS's fanbase will watch any shit so long as BTS is mentioned in it.

I'm familiar with Cookie, I have several friends who used to be big JJCC fans and told me about her. It was a small fandom so she was able to get a lot of influence just because she ran a fanpage for them.

It got to the point a member of JJCC's agency posted on their official Facebook about her, but she still carried on being crazy.

According to her she managed to track one of the members, Mak, via GPS on his phone (I don't see how this is possible without her having access to her phone so I personally think she was just being delusional) and became angry when she looked at the tracker and it appeared to be in the middle of nowhere. She posted a lot of weird updates on her fanpage threatening him about it and asking where the fuck he was. This, combined with Mak supposedly being rude to her (she never really gave concrete details) one time, made her furious with him and she started using her fanpage and social media accounts to harass him. Eventually the JJCC account just blocked her, which led to her going crazy over that and Mak messaging her telling her to cool her shit.

No. 347993

I’ve seen comments like that in a few different places, actually. YG is the most hated guy in kpop rn despite not being much shadier than any of the other big CEOs, so places like r/kpop take any reason to insist he keeps BlackPink chained to a wall. I swear only a year ago people praised the way YG handled GD’s dating rumours by just saying “we don’t know, it’s his private business, we’re not going to confirm an idol’s personal life” but doing the same over Jennie means he’s actually jealous and in love with her and deleting all of their demos as we speak.

In general getting caught in a dating scandal in your first 3 years is the only time they’ll really cause a problem. All the dating bans, either official or unofficial (even the official ones are more like “don’t get caught”, not “don’t date”) last for about 3 years for a reason.

For example that situation with Uee and Gangnam.
Imagine living in a country that's so hypocritically uptight about things like one-night-stands that you have to pretend to date your fuckbuddy, only to "break up" after 3 months LOL.

Lisa's been a model for YG's clothing line since predebut, was pushed a lot as a trainee back when she was known as Lalice, she's pushed about as much as a non-Korean will be. Jisoo's also done modelling and MC work, Rose got a feature on a GD song when she was like 15. Jennie gets pushed the most but it's not as drastic as it seems at first, and the most popular members are always going to be pushed. BP in general are just pushed like crazy

Why do armys always feel entitled to everything? I get that BTS are the biggest kpop act in the world right now, but them going all like "bts are the first to sell arenas world wide and chart on the billboard" etc etc etc is all fucking lies .. Bigbang did it years ago. The only thing BTS has done that bigbang hasn't is being a regular guest on the fucking ellen show.

people pointed out suho instantly made a huge deal out of jennie's presence by leaping around next to her, which i guess you could see two ways: a) he was trying to draw attention away from the fact she'd moved to stand next to kai or b) he was trying to draw attention TO her proximity by taking the focus off the hosts.

i think it's probably option a though.

I thought BIGBANG were going to survive any controversy by having a lot of popularity and some good songs (plenty are trash, but stuff like Loser and Fxxk It were good imo) but TOP’s scandal might be what pushed them over the edge. It was weed, it involved sex, it involved mental health and it’s not his first time having rumours of suicide attempts, TOP was already a controversial person, it happened while he was enlisted… overall I just don’t know if they’ll bounce back the way they could with other things. Taeyang’s the wholesome married Christian holding their reputation in Korea together, but international fans arguably like him the least for his braids and stuff

No. 348080

Why would SM or YG want to stage a Kai/Jennie relationship though? I get it for stuff like Jonghyun's relationship with Shin Sekyung back in the day because Shinee were still rookies and it got them some name recognition, but Kai and Jennie are already in successful groups, and they're two of the best known members. The only way it really makes sense is if SM or YG wanted to take the heat off another couple, but you would think they'd both choose to sacrifice less popular members, like leak a Xiumin/Lisa couple or something.

No. 348083

if yg staged the relationship they would get another idol from yg or some random guy who isn't a member of one of the most popular groups imo. i don't think he can just hit sm up and say "hey, jennie is my sugar baby and people are getting sus. pass one of the exo boys so we can cover it up xxx" and they automatically accept it even though kai gains nothing from the situation

No. 348086

imo if it’s staged then it’s just the way IU staged ‘accidentally’ posting that picture of her in bed. people said it’s suspicious/dumb how obvious a couple of their hints have been in a short period of time, right? could just be that they are together and one/both of them thinks being known as an idol who openly dates will be good for them. IU wanted to break out of her uwu pure smol girl image and into one of an uwu pure smol girl who is also sexually active with older men. maybe Jennie thinks her image is bordering too much on being the girlfriend idol and she wants to stop herself from being marketed that way before it really starts? it’s that if they’re just kind of dumb and didn’t think they’d be caught

No. 348087

The only thing that makes me sus about Kai and Jennie is none of the fans, even the hardcore stalker ones, had any idea either. Usually the most hardcore Korean stans know ahead of any leak or confirmation that their faves are dating, and are keeping it under wraps. Fans knew about Baekhyun and Taeyeon and Kai and Krystal ahead of leaks, for example.

Apparently Kai and Jennie have only been dating a few months so that could explain it, but seeing as they both seemed to be doing all that they could to get caught, from cringey lovestagram shit to meeting in the middle of a public park, I have to wonder.

well a lot of times those relationships caused a lot of controversy, especially big bang

now most big bang fans are older and more mature and the group doesnt have the hype it really used to but in their day, it definitely wasnt welcomed warmly when one of them were dating especially considering they liked non famous and or foreign girls so much

Didn't one Super Junior member effectively kicked out from the group because he got married? There was a massive shitstorm about him "not telling his fans" or some shit and they made up a thousand excuses to cover up the fact that they were angry at him getting married.

No. 348111

relationships for big groups are still pretty rare when you consider that there’s far more attention on them, meaning less room to hide. i don’t know much about super junior so i can’t say for them, but bigbang’s only member to consistently have dating scandals was gdragon, and that was mostly just with kiko mizuhara. taeyang’s had one, and they ended up getting married. seungri had the pictures of him leaked, but other than that it’s mostly just known that he dates a lot, not who he dates. and top aside from the trainee girl just had shin min ah, and that was only known because he reportedly tried to kill himself after he broke up with her.

exo’s only confirmed relationships have been kai (two times) and baekhyun, right? do had rumours with a girls day member for ages, but that’s still not a lot of scandals for a big group. tvxq only really had rumours, which was changmin and victoria, and i think some people actually believed go ara and yunho. i’m only talking about the two members, but they’re 15 years into debut and haven’t had a single confirmed public relationship since debut. it was one of the ex members who got caught on tape saying every time he got a girlfriend, obsessive fans would threaten and harass her and they’d break up soon anyway.

No. 348112

yep, and exo has had scandals too so it really shouldnt come as a surprise when a group doesnt want fans to know they are dating or having sexual relations with people

I think they are done for as a group tbh. Seungri still hasn't enlisted in the army, so when they will finally be able to gather again as complete group TOP will be in the middle of his thirties. They will be too old and have been off the market for too long to still be relevant.

Hopefully the same will happen to BTS. Considering that the age gap between the youngest and the oldest in the group is like 4 or 5 years, they will probably enlist on different times as well and they will fade into irrelevancy because the group won't be together for a long time.

TOP ??? does he want to stay in public eye? He never established solo music career, acted in one random project every other year without much impact, can't count on CFs after scandal.

kinda a silly question but do you guys think that idols actually do spend ~hours and hours and hours~ learning choreography, or are they exaggerating? part of me thinks that since a lot of them don't have a natural talent for dance, they have to practice a lot to be decent (while the backup dancers are most likely trained in dance and therefore can perform it better even with less practice)

or in reality they don't really practice that much and that's why they're so bad at dancing

No. 348261

Daesung has a really loyal fan base in Japan, and is pretty good at variety so I can see him being semi-relevant there. I’m sure Taeyang can woo the housewives by with some ballads about Hyorin.

Alot of people think that bighit kept Supremeboi from getting in trouble, so it wouldn't be a that big of a stretch to say the same for rat.

Most of their YouTube views come from the SEA and not the west so I wouldn't take that as any metric of success. English skills aren't a guarantee of success either - if they were, American citizens like Jay Park and Ailee wouldn't be forced to come to Korea to make a music career.

Korea's lookism (stanning Black pink because they're pretty and wear pricey clothes) won't work in America when Rose sounds like a dying cat, Lisa dances like a spastic, Jennie can't be fucked to do anything and Jisoo is just there.

Authenticity is a big factor for American audiences to like artists beyond using them as a one-off gimmick; BTS is only covered by the media because their schtick is that they're "not like those manufactured K-pop groups" because they write their own songs. BP doesn't have that going for them.

I'm not sure any Korean girl group can break the US. Plenty have tried, and it fails every time.

With both girl groups and boy bands the primary audience is teenage girls, but the reason they like girl groups is different to the reason they like boy bands. Most teen fans like boy bands because they find the guys cute, but girl groups because they want to be the girls. And the largest audiences in the US are white teenage girls and black and hispanic teenage girls, so they're going to find it hard to relate to a group of Korean women.

>>348505 She looked better when she had tan skin and didn't lose all that weight. Its sad bc she did all that and she's still the least popular member of f(x) :/. But anyway she looks the same as always? Am I missing something?

No. 348515

>>348513 pretty much everyone is a flop now except for Victoria she's doing extremely well in China.

No. 348521

they probably had plans for her to be in a gg after one solo maybe but she ended up hitting it big lol
she can both dance and sing plus has good stage presence which is what people expect in soloists
they also probably saw how the other p101 girls were flopping in their groups so they went on promoting her solo instead
look at most of the wanna one members now, their companies are making them go solo instead to avoid failed groups

Surgery can only help so much. Even if she rearranges her whole face she's never going to have the facial features of Krystal and Sulli, which is the kind of beauty Koreans like. Personally I think Luna was pretty cute naturally, stylists just didn't know how to work with her darker skin and gave her the worst makeup which made her look worse.

Her solo back then was also EDM, which is a hard sell for a solo artist. Korean general public lost interest in her and she's doing musicals now to cover the bills. I doubt this new song will do all that well either.

Krystal's dramas did pretty well but she doesn't do enough of them to stay in the public eye. She just shows up to a photoshoot/CF now and then and spends that cash travelling around the world. Lowkey wish I had her life

90% of her face is gone now and it looks like the remaining skin is trying its best to hold on to whatever's left of her face. Horrifying.

Tbh I wouldn't consider Krystal the type of beauty Koreans like. She has a non-perfect and non-PS nose, a long face, minimal makeup, brooding expression (all by Korean standards of course, she's pretty to me) - when I think of a typical "visual" face I picture Irene.
It surprises me that SM didn't force her under the knife tbh, she's very natural looking. With SM you always have to fear they're gonna turn the next idol into a gangnam unnie/oppa.

Unrelated but I really hope Amber doesn't troon out.

Jimin of AOA's voice is obnoxious. And Momo has no vocal talent whatsoever, she was only chosen for her dancing. She should've stuck with being a dancer instead of an idol, it doesn't suit her.
