So someone on the last thread mentioned Taeyeon's departure from SM >>357806 and I found this

>And whilst I don't know how true it is but I have heard in the past about Taeyeon & Yoona having different contract terms and lengths that were signed back in 2014.. Apparently in those 2014 renewals whilst the other members of SNSD signed on for an additional 3 years to 2017. Taeyeon & Yoona's ran for an extra 2 years, putting them both into 2019. We're now in 2019 and whilst it seems that Yoona has renewed her contract. Taeyeon has held out on doing. That is if it is true that they both signed 5 year contracts in 2014.


I wonder how and why both of them have different contract lengths than the rest of SNSD?

No. 7682

>>7681
Probably because they were the most popular (and thus profitable) SNSD members.

I'm cackling about how Somi and her attention seeking white dad lost out on JYP's ITZSY group, especially since they seem to be going for the girl crush image that she loves.

I wonder if Jessica was offered the same but she rejected it and that was what made her leave SM? She was a big deal too back then

As much as I don't like Somi, I'm still worried that if she goes solo she might still have a chance. Just look at Sunmmi, she's not a good singer but she has the looks and lucked out with 3 good songs in a row.

I hope she falls by the wayside like Yubin

The girl in ITZY is Chaeyeon's sister. Chaeyeon probably got booted out of JYP because of her looks.

Itzy doesn't remind me of twice. The girl crush vs innocent concept is an obvious reason but also no itzy members are foreign to Korea iirc and talent was held in a higher regard than visuals for choosing members

Yeah they're trying too hard to go for the 2NE1 image and failing, because honestly JYP isn't good at making "badass" girl groups - WG and Miss A didn't have the "luxury swag" concept.

That said if they're real competition to Black Pink I'm all for them because they've been robbing an empty house with their "girl crush" image and I'd like to see blinks get salty when the inevitable fan exodus occurs

No. 7730

>>7681
I don't doubt that Taeyeon and Yoona got better contracts, but I think Taeyeon at least signed a 2-year contract in 2017 and that was probably under immense pressure. I was expecting her not to renew after the Jakarta airport incident where SM let her face crowds with just one guard, but I guess SM's blackmailing worked.
They're not above using emotional manipulation to get people to sign contracts.

I don't understand why she stayed. She talked about being confused when WG disbanded and I guess that plays a big part. But the other girls were right to leave, I guess Sunmi and YeEun already had their solo debuts under JYP and knew how much he stifled their creativity and potential. Yubin is probably only now realizing that pretty much any label would treat her better than this. Anyways, she renewed two years ago so hopefully, her contract isn't much longer.

On a related note, there's been reports about Sunye singing with a label and returning to Korea to make music. Way back in the day, Sunye was actually my first bia in the group but then she chose to become a missionary and a mother/wife over her group before her contract was even up… and now that everyone else has gone solo she wants a piece of the action? She has a life in Canada with 3 kids and has denounced fame before. I don't understand.

No. 7747

>>7746
And isn't Sunye getting hate exactly for that reason? She's often pointed to as the one who destroyed WG

No. 7748

>>7747
Idk i've never thrown hate her way and JYP destroyed the group itself, it's none of the girls' fault. But her actions confuse me nonetheless. Polaris says she'll have broadcasted promotions.. of what though? gospel music?

No. 7749

>>7747
>>7748
iirc she re-signed with jyp at a time when she knew she was about to leave the country and industry. it's not her fault wonder girls were fucked over, but she definitely extended their hiatus by making it seem like she'd be back soon when that wasn't her plan. it's weird how much more shit yg gets for 2ne1's downfall when wonder girls have been a mess behind the scenes since the beginning and were abandoned for a new girl group too

i know these retarded channels have been brought up before but damn this channel always pops up in my recommendations and i literally don't even watch anything related to vkook, k-pop ships or whatever. i don't understand why armys keep whining about their poor boys getting their privacy invaded yet believe in and give clout to these channels where they make 20 minute analysises on every breath they take. like i checked out this fujo's videos to see if she actually makes a point but her editing is laughable and she doesn't even make any sense, she just tinfoils about how v is depressed because he drank water and looked skinny during a performance or how south korea supports them coming out because vkook is a popular ship in korea and 14 year old pansexual enby armys are crying in the comments because muh lgbt representation

It's so ironic to watch this interview now. Timestamp 00:53, the interviewer just says out loud that JYP doesn't care about them ("He prefers other unnies, right?"), the girls agree and Yeeun says "There's also TWICE on top of that now" and jokes about the fact that he "coaches them more closely".

hyuna and edawn come off as very attention seeking and stupid for what they did. obviously there's nothing wrong with dating, but coming out about your relationship when you know it'll just damage your career is such a dumb move. at least wait until you're getting married. it makes me think they only came out about their relationship so they could post couple photos on instagram. why do international kpop fans want everybody to feel sorry for these idiots?

this literally took a minute to search for and find, there’s more instances of her interacting with him just fine. wouldn’t be that convincing otherwise but it’s about irene and her fans claim she is terrified of men and doesn’t hide how much she hates being around them. if it’s so amazing that she ever seems okay around a man then… she seems fine?

i was surprised to see any news to do with him at all since i thought he was the one who had to miss some of the chile dates because he had enteritis? if that was a day he was there then the guy was probably just focusing on not shitting himself

It just goes to show that people here hate the ps culture from kpop idols but you then give them enough fuel to feel like they need it, and then make fun of them even more. It's digusting.

Didn't care much for the "home" move they do with their arms during it lol kind of too literal.

Nice try Suju stan, but 20-something Leeteuk hitting on 14-year old Yoona and Krystal is not just SJWs being loud, it's creepy no matter how you try to spin it.

If it was, say, Heechul grabbing Irene's waist it'd clearly be a case of RV stans overreacting, but since Leeteuk is always fucking creepy it's natural to be suspicious of whether Irene allowed him to touch her or not. It's not a vendetta against old people, it's a vendetta against creeps.

I’m guessing you guys have never watched those Korean variety shows where fat men in their 40s will kiss girls that are practically toddlers.

Age gaps are not considered controversial in Korea and a grown man “waiting” to marry a girl once she’s legal is commonly accepted. It’s just like when western fans act appalled by sexist behaviour even though variety show hosts will literally hit female idols on their heads repeatedly during broadcasts both in Korea and Japan.

Do you have something more interesting to talk about then? Funny how you all keep whining about how the earliest threads were so much better than this but you keep coming back here even when you know this thread is heavily invested with jealous newfags. You could have just started a new topic or something, it's not like those so-called annoying topics are gonna last all thread. Plus the earliest threads weren't that better anyway, there were obvious attempts of fangirling and such.

You guys are insane if you thought anyone was justifying anything. I have not seen a single person in this thread say that was ok nor did I make any attempt to imply that (it’s not acceptable under any circumstance wtf). That post was critical of the social behaviour demonstrated on public broadcasts, it’s literally backing up your point of culturally accepted sexism being an issue in South Korea, hence why some anons are concerned about certain men and the repercussions on the women around them.

Critical discussions don’t always require oversimplified complaints like:
>muh men are fucking creeps gross
>korean idols r disgusting

Sometimes you can just add to the conversation as an extension of a topic. Same reason I’ve seen other anons bring up that show where callers ask for advice on personal issues and unfortunately the guests often spew toxic bullshit at them instead of being any sort of real help, because it’s a symptom of a wider problem in Korea.

Why are you so paranoid. I only ever stanned girl groups and that was many years ago (probably gave myself away with that WG clip from 10 years ago).

>>7914
Yeah most posts are either about (1) a specific member of x group being "ugly" (usually they look fine or it's a purposely unflattering shot), which begs the question why one would care so much about a random idol's facial features if not because they're invested either as fans or "antis" (forgive the term but you know what I mean)

(2) x idol is gay, lesbian, hates the opposite sex, or is autistic around the opposite sex, or is stupid for being caught dating or choosing to publicly date

If you deviate from calling out specific idols for any of these reasons then it's totally off topic, don't bother discussing the wider issues of plastic surgery in SK just laugh at how every female idol has the same face over and over again, don't point out any systemic problems within the entertainment industy because anon only wants to bitch about x company or x group, any comparisons are off topic.

Of course you need to have some certain level of investment on the topic to be able to discuss it but these anons just refuse to hide their power level and frankly I don't see why they would have to come here to make those posts they do. Literally just badly disguised stan speak.(Derailing)

Are you for real? I wasn't using "whole" in the stan twitter language, I was using it synonymously with entire, because it was an entire piece about how her idol wasn't a creep, every man in Korea's a creep (which isn't necessarily wrong, it is a culture thing, but the entire thing felt like a justification for Leeteuk's actions: as in 'he's not bad, he's just raised that way :(')

The complaints aren't unfounded, anon. And most of us KNOW that's its a cultural thing, I just question why you brought it up again. It seemed as if it was a way to defend Leeteuk as >>7913 said.

That child couldn't even talk or look at people and said that he hates it and they can't even see how fucked up it is? I really hope some Korean lawyer in their mind sues them and an actual therapist helps the boy

I remember seeing some other clips from the show, there was another teenage girl who talked about how she was getting beaten by her father and literally no one took it seriously, it was edited with these dumb texts and effects Korean shows use. What the fuck is wrong with this show?

Same poster, if you ignore the dumb animations and keep watching, actually 60% of the audience look shocked and disappointed as all the awful things he does keep rolling in, (20 minutes so far) and he even lies right on camera about how he "helps" her. Plus the hosts are disapproving of everything. So it is not as bad as it first looks (and they even introduce a member of government or something from Singapore who disapproves too.

This guy is super abusive, even making her clean while heavily pregnant, every thing he does is awful. Sexually harassing and groping her and even his own mother. Someone needs to beat some sense into him. The "kissing" his son while he is held down for 10 minutes is mighty concerning. It is ok because "they are mine". Like wife and child are toys to do whatever he wants with.

Overall, terrible but at least she could put this on tv and tell everyone

This squishy baby narrative infantilizing these idols is so creepy. I doubt anybody would refer to an American guy in his 20s-30s as a ~smol chubby whiny lil baby owo~

i understand all the babying if the idol is a minor or has a genuinely childish personality (doubt) but it's even weirder when it's with someone like chanyeol (the guy is like 6'1" for fuck's sake) or jungkook who are both bulked up adult men

No. 8036

Whenever I scroll past that OP, I keep thinking that if they were non-korean celebrities everybody would have written them off as druggies already (which they likely are). But because they're precious k-dols they're so "woke, yas, slay, queen&king, couple goals,…".

Same with >>8026
Even if a let's say american celebrity would be a decade younger than Chanyeol people would already say he's either a pussy or rude/entitled for making a fuss about something so minor.

In the twitter thread of that hello counselor pedo scandal the top tweets are all saying "it's not a cultural thing". Yes it is! Why is it so difficult to grasp that Korea is a less than ideal country, that there are many bad koreans and that nobody does shit about that?! Parents beating their children, husbands/bfs beating their female partners, kids commiting suicide en masse either because of academic pressure or unimaginable bullying (not just namecalling, they're literally trying to beat classmates to death) has been rampant for decades already, and yet society always turns a blind eye to these issues. They don't give a fuck about their own people, and even less about some dirty foreign k-drama or music fans. But try explaining to a kboo that their Oppas are not innocent and soft and so much more gentle than the boys in their countries. "Koreans are kind, they respect elders and help each other!"…
Making fun of idols and their orbiters kind of stopped being funny; it's just sad.

No. 8037

>>8036
There's a variety of reasons why people will never accept that Korea is less than ideal because 1) they're afraid of being called racist, xenophobic or whatever the fuck is the new popping word at the moment 2) they're a koreaboo who doesn't want to admit or see that their fairy tale land is not what has been marketed to them through the korean media they have consumed 3) pride in believing that the thing they support (kpop or korean media) is woc and therefore can do no wrong, aka sjws who believe their gay trans bois are fighting the system even though they're just a bunch of marketing tools 4) they're fucking stupid or they actually don't care and just want their Kpop fix.

ive been a huge fan of hyuna for years, but i can admit i havent been diggin her appearance since triple h began. one of the main things that i cant stand is the way she wears lipstick now. she just smears it around and goes over her cupids bow as if she applied it in the dark. i know she is going for the dead/heroine chic look but it just does not suit her. the only time it did was during the now promotions with trouble maker. her hair has been an absolute tragedy and she needs to stop going back and forth from bleaching it and darkening it cause she is balding. and the whole thing with the scale pic, the ig pics/lives of her eating high calorie foods, saying shes gaining weight, just seems like bs to me. she is looking like a damn skeleton these days. her face has been so sunken in and her arms and legs are sticks. shes always been fit and thin, but she just looks ana tier now. this all makes me wonder if she is just struggling mentally from being kicked out of cube, or if she is trying to rebel from the clean and sexy image they pushed her in all these years. its probably both tbh.

kek at Dangerous Woman reject. Tiffany is so fucking cringey, idk who told her she looked good trying to be sexy but it just doesn't work. I truly think she should have just gone the irrelevant MC/show host route instead of trying to make some sort of an American solo singing career for herself.

Am I the only one who has realized that the GP doesn't even respect the so-called 'legendary' SNSD anymore. All of this time, I thought they were 'legendary' to the public for songs like Gee, Oh!, RDR, Genie, etc, but I guess the recent comments towards SNSD members in their solo ventures reflect the attitudes towards girl group members after their time is up. They're no longer the "Nation's Little Sisters" or whatever gross peso shit they can come up with to infantilize them. The only member who gets positive comments is Yoona but she's nowhere near the level of fame in the public eye that people (Sones) thought she'd have years ago.

And I apologize if this is all irrelevant, but girl groups truly have the shortest shelf-life, no matter how fans try to make excuses, "Oh, they're still popular!" AOA has fucking tanked since Heart Attack, EXID kinda died after Ah Yeah, Girl's Day was popular for like a year maybe. It's basically a known fact at this point that being an idol is just being a puppet for years and then being left with no education (except if you "study" Acting or Music at some "university" like they all do kek). BP and Twice fans act as if they've surpassed 2NE1 or SNSD, which were far more influential in their time, and yet 2NE1 and SNSD don't have the longevity of solo careers afterward. Twice already has that same pedo-bait image, and once a scandal breaks out, or when they've gotten too old, they're done for, unless they somehow pull an APink and keep trudging on, but idk. Seems like 3rd Gen Kpop fans don't realize that this is gonna be their idol's reality soon.

Its almost sad in a way even though Im not a fan. It really shows how fast time goes go by and things change. But kpop is weird now anyway.

But the 13 year old girls' money is what most companies are chasing. Lots of artists who do well digitally, like Melomance or Bol4 or Ailee, are only as relevant as their last hit song. They likely won't make much money from songs alone. The only real way to make any money is through CF deals, album sales, and concerts - all of which only artists with a fandom get to have.
I doubt Hyuna's druggie image is landing her any CF deals and she was never a beauty like Sulli (who continues to land deals on her looks alone) and her last song barely charted. I don't want her to fail but let's be realistic, her time in the spotlight is almost over.

they're all like "these are very old, they were just kids and that's just a cultural thing but they've changed a lot!! they apologized, they are not like that anymore!!" as if they didn't just start going all social justice because it's the trendy thing right now. it's not like they were 12, they were around 18-20 and knew what they were doing

Yeah. Starting with ICC Dr. Kim really did a number on her face. I'm guessing they were trying to lean into this "rich foreign exchange student" aura she was assigned to. The plastic surgery wasn't as obvious as it is now because of the bleached hair and overall styling (and because it was fresh) but the problem with these extreme procedures such as a jaw shave is that it requires constant maintaining which ups the risk of fucking up.
Not to armchair too much but with her fluctuating weight and plastic surgery girl seems to be very insecure. Shame because I really liked her kind look she had when she first debuted and she's undoubtedly one of the best vocalists of her generation.

Funny that you say that because literally all people would talk about during their debut was how similar they all supposedly looked.

What is everyones thoughts on this video? It was linked in the video the anon posted and it explain the hello counsellor situation in a sort of cultural point of view.

It's incredibly upsetting and fucked up that someone would choose to bring a pedophile man who abuses his kids and his wife to a TV show so the audience can laugh at the situation. The mother needs to divorce him and he needs to be far away from her and the kids, perhaps in jail.
The culture stuff is just an excuse for abusers.

yes something being part of a certain culture gives it context but that does not free it from criticism.
ive noticed its mostly non-koreans pulling the culture card though lol how absolutely cucked do you have to be to be willing to excuse pedo shit for another culture just so you can continue to jerk it to your korean idols in a peaceful mindset? call me when this show gets taken off air and the man is in jail.

No. 29627

>>29626
Because then these morons would have to accept that Korea is not this happy fairy tale land that they've been spoon fed but the Korean media they consume. It honestly tells you the current climate of things when people are excusing pedo shit as "cultural" or whatever buzzword they fancy. I'm pretty sure everyone in this thread is in full agreement that this asshole needs to be thrown in jail and the show needs to be taken off the air. Now.
