Kpop thread Anonymous 576

Thread for all of us fans of kpop share our bias, why we love them and their song recommendations and just general photo thread!

(all genres of korean music and all bands/artists are welcome)

Please do not disrespect, anyone's opinion is valid!!! Please don't say stuff like 'he just ugly', cause everyone knows beauty is subjective

(tbh made this cause I want to ind more k-groups/artists to stan)

Girl groups would be very appreciated!

Anonymous 578

I don't really follow Kpop releases/groups as much anymore, but I've been reading about the BTS thing and I feel really bad for the guy.

K-netizens are so notoriously insane, and yeah the guy presumably smoked some weed, but I hope his career isn't completely destroyed for it.

Anonymous 579

Wait, bts and weed?
Do you meam the TOP from bigbang scandal?
Because i havent heard any other weed situation other than that TOP one eventhouugh i'm a BTS fan.

Anonymous 580

Glad a BTS fan confirmed I was real confused for a second.

What I don't understand about the TOP situation is that GD got caught smoking in Japan a few years back and he was just like 'oops didn't knew it was weed lol' and everyone forgot about it.

I guess the other revelations of TOP dating that trainee and overdosing on prescribed meds is what's making his case particularly bad but I feel like he's honestly just taking the fall for all YG family right now. We know by now most of them meddle in drugs (Park bom?) and the police were already looking for a big name to bust. It's just awful for this to all come down on one guy, plus he might be expelled from the military and i'm not sure how that fucks up one's social standing in South Korea but I can't imagine it's good news.

Anonymous 581


In a country like South Korea it fucks up person's life badly, I mean have you seen how they care about things like that and are strict af about social standing. I wouldn't be amazed if he was dropped by his company, never got a job again…

Anonymous 582

Yeah sorry meant TOP, haha.

tbh the whole K-Star scene in Korea is extremely toxic. They basically have to be perfect angels and pander to the political/social climate and can't be individuals. I don't remember who it was but remember the girl who got completely destroyed for bringing back anti-depressants she was prescribed from the states, but because that brand was illegal in Korea they painted her like a drug mule.

I'm not saying Korea should be as open about their celebrities doing drugs/being shambled all the time, but it's shit how they can't make any sort of mistake or do anything not completely straight and narrow.

Oh! Got kinda confused there for a moment haha.
I never in my life will understand the Park Bom situation, she had a perfectly reasonable defence going for her, but she's got stuck with the title druggie for having her depression treated overseas.

It feels like netizens are getting more and more nitpicky as time passes, only agreed with the outrage over sulli because she is an attention seeking animal abuser (although i think if they didn't gave her all the attention she would stop tbh), but otherwise most "scandals" make my eyes roll into the back of my head over how trivial and stupid they sound.
At least they are getting more chill about celebs dating, which is nice.

> We know by now most of them meddle in drugs
Not only YG, but most of the industry does, if you get into korean or chinese gossip forums, or even salty sasaengs rants, you get a lot of info regarding this.
Idols groups going into bars to entertain sponsors (male and female), fucking people to appear on stations, doing excessive amounts of drugs to be able to stand on stage without collapsing + staying thin, intense overwoking leading to smoking, alcohol and excessive drug consumption… etc
The industry is absolute shit and i doubt many idols don't have an addictiont o at least something.
Like, i remember when Seventeen thought they had a vacation at last but it was just a shitty program where they basically starved themselves on a shitty village, it was so sad to watch and very eye opening.

It's such a scummy industry, but they paint it like an uguuuuu fantasy of perfect darlings being super good and skipping on flower fields.
I still cannot believe how netizens believe that shitty facade and condomn idols when it's uncovered as if they are trash, even after all the ex-idols that came saying what the industry was like.

I love KARD! It's so nice to have co-ed groups that are actually good in kpop.

I'm more into boy groups and solo (indie or otherwise)artists, myself though heh.

Anonymous 597

whoops, condemn* not condomn kek

Anonymous 598

Yeah it really sucks how much of a forced unhealthy image they have to create of themselves.

I also find it to be extremely hypocritical, Korea has such a high depression/suicide rate that they refuse to acknowledge along with one of the highest alcohol consumption rates in the world. They need to realize that a) hiding behind alcohol is just as bad as the rogue drug abuse that gets revealed every once in a while and b) just bottling shit up and hiding mental shit isn't going to solve the problem. It sucks too because I haven't seen any major shift in social ideologies surrounding both of these things and I think once the government or society makes a bigger effort to say "hey lets work on this" then it'll be better.

To go back to a slightly relevant topic, anyone into K-Indie?

Anonymous 684

I started listening to kpop in 2006-2007 when I was about 11. TVXQ, Super Junior, SS501 and Shinhwa were really big at the time but I could never get into boy groups at all. Much preferred the old school girl groups like SES, Baby VOX and Finkl until finally their predecessors debuted. For most of the early 2000's there was really just BoA, Lee Hyori and Ivy for female idols I think. CSJH The Grace were supposed to be "female TVXQ" but they never really blew up or got that big.

Finally 2007 was the year that the big three debuted their follow up girl groups. Baby Vox Rev disappeared into obscurity but JYP debuted Wonder Girls which I guess took their place. Then SNSD (known as the female super junior "super girls" at the time) continued S.E.S's legacy and KARA took over for Finkl.

Guess I shouldn't be surprised that SNSD is the only ones left standing. Although I always much preferred KARA and Wonder Girls.

I still follow current groups like Red Velvet, Twice and Blackpink very loosely. Mainly I just download their albums when they have new releases but don't engage with fandoms much anymore and I don't even bother learning member names tbh.

Anonymous 695


Ah, KARD. They recently came to Brazil and appeared on TV. The host (a fat and old white dude) was super racist towards them (fake accent, slanting his eyes with his fingers, calling them japanese, the whole deal), and it sparkled even more racism from K-netizens. Truly, a cringy shitshow.

On another note, does anyone have any news on Bestie? Fuck, I miss them so much. Dahye is my role model.

I must say, I am very sad that the new songs from SNSD kinda… flopped. 4kk for more than 5 days for k-pop, especially such veteran group, is very weak. And I don't get it, because I loved both Holiday and All Night. They are very summer-y.

People are also calling the girls old. I guess they are all like 13 y/o, but still annoys me.

I hope they don't disband :(

Anonymous 908

Most "old" groups have started to flop, which is very sad since they were my introduction to kpop and i hold them quite dear.
People rarely care about them anymore because new groups have such huge fanbases full of new kids that don't venture outside of them and are not interested in "old" idols.
Plus, most fans of snsd/super junior/2pm/and whatnot are oldfags that while still loyal, they cannot stream and support them to the lengths that teenagers may because:
1. they have things to do that makes them not able to spend 40000000000 hour streaming / buying 60000 copies of a cd
2. they don't care about numbers (as a kpop oldfag, i sure as hell don't and find most discussion of it annoying.)
SNSD is also a special case because they have been on so many "scandals" and relationships, which caused some of the fanbase to leave. I, however, don't think snsd will disband any time soon, since they are such a cashcow for SM.
Taeyeon's solos bring such brings numbers still, that i don't think they can be considered a complete flop solely because of age.

Most fans who care about the ages of the idols and not the music are superficial 12 y/o trendy group hoppers, so i never consider their opinion imortant kek.

Holdiay is such a fun summer jam though, i hope it picks up because it deserves it.

Summer died for me the day that sistar disbanded tbh.

Anonymous 909



Oh, don't even tell me about Sistar. Really loved their upbeat songs :'(
Also I loved how they were more tanned, especially Hyorin. I mean, I love pale skin, but when every idol has it, it's a breath of fresh air to see someone with color on their body.

But yeah, you are mostly right. I just care for views now because I am afraid the company will consider less views as less money and disband the group. Maybe SNSD is still too big to disband, but you never know.

Bumping this thread to make a very, very random remark.

Does anyone here reads Junji Ito? Because Exid's Hani reminds me SO MUCH of Tomie. Like, her face is what I picture Tomie to be IRL. And it kind of creeps me out, especially when she smiles. She has the fox eyes. I can only think she'll try to transform me into another Tomie.

I didn't understand the hype for Kpop til I watched Red Velvet's Ice Cream Cake MV when it came out 2 years ago.

I mean, back in the day, groups rarely ever survived to their 10th anniversary. So it's actually quite amazing the groups I grew up with are still together for the most part (SuJu, SNSD, Big Bang etc).

The internet and international success contributes to the longevity of these acts I believe. If these groups weren't icons that represented the country on a global scale, which makes up a huge economic export and helps with tourism, then I don't think they would stand the test of time.

Seo Taji & Boys were the biggest and most influential kpop act in history, yet they disbanded after four short years together. There's a difference between being a cash-cow for a single company versus being a cash-cow for your country.

One of the most heartbreaking disbandments this year was the Wonder Girls. Honestly, WG were the it-girls for the first two years after their debut, they were dubbed the "nation's little sisters", even SM had a hard time competing directly with SNSD. But then JYP forced them into the international market way too soon, which forced Sunmi to leave the group due to depression and their entire US album got scrapped. By the time they returned to Korea in 2010, they were already just a shell of the group they once were.

I'm very proud of the girls for coming back with Reboot + Why So Lonely which was their best work by far and written mostly by the girls themselves. The remaining members were strong performers that took their music and image into their own hands. Unfortunately, JYP kept dismissing their efforts and pulled funding/support for all their projects. Finally they were left with no choice but to officially disband this year despite releasing the best bops and concepts in their entire discography.

I can't believe JYPE would treat their own legendary act like such flops, if it weren't for them, the company would barely have any reputation and it's their own failed strategy/marketing mistakes that killed Wonder Girls hype.

I think the big issue is that groups, no matter how big they get, are seen as disposable/replaceable by their managers and companies. And sadly to a certain extent it's true. There are so many groups that even if one gets huge they can easily be cast aside and the new group promoted like crazy to take their place, and fans are inundated with so many new groups and idols every day that even if there's this obsession culture with netizens of having ONE BIG FAVOURITE, that favourite still changes all the time. And while usually that isn't a big deal with music, in the K and J Pop communities that one-fan obsession is what the companies are marketing for, it isn't the group or the actual music, they're selling the 'idea' of an individual person more than anything else.

So BTS released their new MV track.
I'm a fan of the late 2000's kpop vibe with super colorful over-saturated scenery, cheery vibe and box dancing, especially since their latest concepts have been pretty dark.
But honestly, i think this is the first title track song of theirs that i feel i will need some time to like, i like the whistle and rhythm but it didn't catch me as fast as their other title tracks, i think it's mostly the hook "dubstep" that throws me off.
The rest of the album is absolutely fantastic though. There is no song i did not enjoy apart from DNA, and even that i like overall and will surely grow on me after 3 listens or so.
I personally think some of the other songs of the album would have been a better choice for a promoting song, but maybe they'll do like they did with BST and promote multiple ones.
Also, they look very nice in this promo.

Yeah, if you don't like pop music, you won't like kpop. But there are a few things that I like better with kpop next to american pop:

-They always have dances for their big songs. I just love love love the choreos, it was actually how I first got into kpop; I had a looot of korean friends/classmates growing up and they were all into dancing; the guys were into "street"/break dancing and the girls would do the typical kpop stiletto dances, and if they didn't dance themselves they all loved watching. I got sucked up into it pretty quickly as well because it was so cool. Before that I hated dancing lol Anyway, i love how some choreos are super in synch, like twice's or gfriend's, for example. Check this one out, I always get hypnotized at 1:00 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uypQGzzhns
- The style. Yes, I love korean fashion, I like how they are a bit edgier than japanese normie fashion. I appreciate that.
- I like looking at pretty korean girls lol I like getting jealous at their faces and bodies. I always pick my favorite in the group based on how jealous I am of them (semi-kidding) Funny thing, I am actually straight but I don't like the male kpop groups. I usually don't like their fake swag act or fake cutesy act lol With girls, it's usually a bit more natural (of course it depends on the group, some are just tooooo sugary)

That being said, I don't partake on any kpop fandom in general because it's pestered with cringy 13 y/o and I am an old fag (at least for them)

Likey is such a stellar comeback song. I feel like TT and Likey are the equivalent to Into The New World and Girl Generation (title song) that SNSD debuted with 10 years ago. It's such a fun-loving concept with the appropriate production to make it a classic hit.

I feel like Red Velvet and Blackpink don't have any chance against Twice for market domination. Nine member girl groups seem to work like a charm for the Korean public and 4 or 5 members girl groups can't quit compete. I think it comes down to fandoms and the sheer number of girls that attract older male fans.

I find it ironic that YG has stuck with 4 members (2NE1, Blackpink) while SM and YG swapped (SNSD = Twice, Wonder Girls = Red Velvet) which has produced the exact opposite results. JYP now dominates with Twice while Red Velvet struggle to keep up. For the previous ten years, SM was dominating with SNSD while JYP's Wonder Girls trailed behind.

Peek-a-boo is an okay comeback but meh.

Anonymous 1764



I am the same anon as >>1615 and I find your input and parallels very interesting, but I think peekaboo is my favorite comeback of this Fall, though. And I also think Red Flavor was my favorite of the Summer. I didn't like them very much when they first debuted, been kinda warm to them the following years as well, but I think they've stepped up their game this year. Also.. <3 Joy <3
Anyway, I really thought RV was more popular in Korea? At least with older audiences and such. I thought it was usually teen girls that were into Twice, and that it had a lot of "haters" because they are mostly looks and can be pretty off key sometimes.

I am all for k-idols trying to break korean molds of beauty standards and behavioral standards, even if for us is just an old trick. I don't know lol

I wish I could be friends with JY and just tell her how beautiful she is.

Like, how long she have had short hair and short hair only? I remember my bf saying something like "that short haired girl really has a style that's not cute at all" Poor JeongYeon :c

Most likely, there are a few idols/artists that have alluded to not being straight and other that have been quite direct about it. There is also shifty chinese websites full of rumours (used to be really into them back in 09 and 2010 because they were really juicy), but those are best taken with a grain of salt.
From the top of my head (not all popular idols, but you know):

>The kid from romeo that on a interview said his ideal type was a man like him, after the other members got freaked out by the word man, he assured them he meant men kek

>A member from Toppdogg came out as asexual and another one has hinted being bisexual.
>A member from D.I.P has come out as bisexual, and two members from that band are dating one another (allegedly).
>Suga (my fav boi) from BTS has alluded a few times to being bisexual, although it could be debatable since it could be minstranslations (i.e gender is not important, he writes sexual lyrics about both genders, etc) . Also Jimin did not deny it when a member said he liked men so, shrugs. And some people think V's song in wings was about his sexuality, but, again, rumours.
>There were a lot of non-translated chinese rumours about Eunhyuk and Donghae actually dating, but it could be shipper shit. Also a lot of rumours about yunho and jaejoong.
>A few years back there was an open secret of Yuri from snsd supposedly dating her trainer, who was a woman in a relationship or some shit.
>A member from Monsta X was supposedly dating a trans ulzzang.
>A member from IMFACT semi-confirmed on various streams that he is bisexual.
>MAMAN is a openly lesbian singer that got kicked from her agency for coming out
>an underground rapper that was supposedly to be in BTS came out as bisexual in a song (so bighit has no qualms hiring lgbt people)
>probably more but forgot

All the other shit i "know" about other groups is pure speculation and rumours with no fundament though, and i don't delve too much into it anymore cause most likely they will settle and marry someone from the opposite sex even if they aren't straight because korea, so what's the point of knowing.
I just hope Holland gets a positive reaction so idols can finally be treated at least a little more like humans and not as afraid to be themselves.

There's lots of racist or bigoted lgbt people, anon, one does not cancel the other out.

Interesting, anon! I don't follow boy groups, so all of this is entirely new to me. As for girls, I'd eat my hat if Solar and especially Moonbyul turned out to be straight. I think Solar is bi and Moonbyul is full lesbian. I truly believe they are a couple.

For TWICE, it's hard to say because there's a lot of fanservice and skinship going on, but I think Dahyun is the strongest LGBT candidate. Also Nayeon.

Girl's Generation, Teayon. I think most people seem to agree on her. I think she's bi with a strong preference for women. Also Yuri and her ""yoga instructor"", and the fact that she was, alledgely, caught on a lesbian love triangle with two actresses.

There's also CHEETAH, everyone says she's dating/married to her manager, and I also strongly believe these claims.

Some claim Hani is bisexual (even that tarot reader lol), and her segments with Soyou are sooper kyut, but I am unsure. Wouldn't be surprised if so, though.

Have you ever heard a rumour that one girl from a fairly big group (I think about GFRIEND's level of fame) accidentally came out on a interview (that got cancelled), their agency took her to conversion therapy and she tried to kill herself. The agency only claimed she was hospitalized because of an accident injury or something like that. Take this with the biggest fucking grain of salt ever, though lol Really don't know anyone that could fit.

Yeah, being LGBT has nothing to do on how you perceive race lol TBF, I don't think Wendy is racist, ignorant is the right word though. I don't think what she did was nice (and it was the second time….), but I don't think it's called for a witch hunt either. More like a slap in her nape and move on lol

Also, how could I forget! Ex Wonder Girl Yubin. I think she's also 100% gay. On her old socia media before she was an idol, she was super tomboy and would post about wanting a new "bottom girlfriend". Many dismissed it as her being an edgy teenager, which I do believe is possible, but I don't think that was the case.

Also I love her deeper voice lol
and that girl in pink is 100% wanting sum Yubin fuk

Anonymous 2472


I don't follow too many gg's so i'm not that aware of their rumours, sorry! But i never heard about that, but if i had to guess there were only a handful of hospitalized big GG members and it would be quite…easy to guess. Alas, this sounds JYP/jay park got Hyuna pregnant and she had to have an abortion levels of grain of salt so lmao.

I also remember a while back there was a gif of Krystal checking out a female fan (pic related) out and it started a string of lesbian/bi female idols rumours, which was pretty interesting but kind of a mess with people denying with claws and blood that she was checking out a gasp woman.

Solar and Moonbyul are adorable! heard some rumours about moonbyul but since netizens seem to hate solar i take any rumour about them, and especially her, with a grain of salt kek. Also the Hani tarot reader stuff was hilarious, she was so flustered it was adorable.

As far as twice i have read some chinese and korean rumours about two members dating, i don't follow them so i am not sure who they meant but they said it was members that always sit on the back on streams/interviews and did a secret trip together, but again, who knows.

Also i think everyone disregarded Yubnins rumours becase "no one is gay in korea!! since the country is anti gay no one can be gay!! people are just going through phases uwu!!!!" but it was quite obvious she was pretty aware of what she wanted. Sunmi being bi/lesbian seems to be a very popular rumour among people as well, but it's for shit as petty as nails so.

Man, the kpop industry is such a juicy mess since they try to be so secretive about everything.

Hmm if I had to pick. It wouldn't have been Krystal.

Anonymous 2475



TBH, Amber is so "out there" with her tomboyish style that I don't think she's a lesbian…. But I do think she's bi lol Like, she can have some deniability and technically not be lying? I also do believe she has a biiiig preference for women.


>Alas, this sounds JYP/jay park got Hyuna pregnant and she had to have an abortion levels of grain of salt so lmao.

WTF I never heard that before, I am wheezing. BTW HyunA is another one that I believe to be bi. (her going out with that chick from KARD was pretty cute as well)

>there were only a handful of hospitalized big GG members and it would be quite…easy to guess

I tried googling it but I never got anything out of it. Any wild guesses?

>I also remember a while back there was a gif of Krystal checking out a female fan (pic related) out and it started a string of lesbian/bi female idols rumours, which was pretty interesting but kind of a mess with people denying with claws and blood that she was checking out a gasp woman.

I think Krystal maybe be bi, as well. She always look so thirsty lol Her sister though, I think she's 100% straight, even though there was a lot of shipping between her and Taeyon or her and Tiffany (another one that I think is totally into dudes).

>netizens seem to hate solar

What, really?? Why? Is it because of that WGM thingie? Or because of her cheeks? She always seem super fun to have around. Rumours say she's also quite a drinker and can get loud, but in a fun way. Like Moonbyul saying on one stream that she came out of the shower and started performing "Honey Bee" naked lol (BTW Their trip together to Hong Kong is basically their unofficial WGM)

>they said it was members that always sit on the back on streams/interviews and did a secret trip together

I follow Twice and honestly I don't know who could it be. They always sit on different places everytime they do an interview? Some anon posted on the QT girl thread a pic of Nayeon and Sana hugging while cooking, so this is the only couple I could think of, but Sana loves fanservice and gets touchy with anyone. I call bullshit lol

>Man, the kpop industry is such a juicy mess since they try to be so secretive about everything.

True, I wish more anons were into it for the gossip alone kek

On other rumours: Heard that IU is bi (I doubt this one, but eh)
That BoA used to go to gay bars in Japan
Jisoo (Blackpink) is either gay or bi
Yeri (Red Velvet) is either bicurious, baby lesbian or straight up bi. Some say she's dating one of her friends and poses it just as a super close friendship (pic related)
Some say Irene is a very closeted and reserved, high femme lesbian. I don't know what to think, I can't read her at all lol I mean, if all the RV rumours where true, we would have 3 LGBT girls on a 5 girl group. That is a pretty unusual ratio, me thinks
Also, I don't know if this counts, but I think Joy is 100% straight, however she loves entertaining (as one can see on a lot of variety shows, like when she's singing trot) and seducing at the same time (as seen on WGM's segments when she loves flirting back and seeing the dude all flustered), so I think she would be the type to enjoy teasing gay girls (and playing it off as if she is innocent) lol Kinda bicurious in a way

Holy Moly, this got YOOGE. I am sorry. I love this kind of celebrity gossip.

Anonymous 2479

I disagree with the Amber thing. She lives in La and despite being in a very popular kpop group she has a long time roommate. A roommate who she takes on vacation with her all the time. It's pretty much like Queen Latifah's live in "personal trainer" that turned out to be her lesbian lover.

Anonymous 2481


Yeah it was a pretty popular rumour that spread around the webs since hyuna left WG. Basically it boiled down to Jay Park got hyuna pregnant so she had to have an abortion outside of korea (while she was officially "hospitalized") and leave the wonder girls. It spread around the kpop fandom like wildfire lmao.

As for the hospitalized or "sick leave" popular girls, in 2017 and 2018 that i can remember there was: Ga-in, Victoria, momoland's yeonwoo, heize, Sana and Jihyo (twice), victoria (fx), apink eunji and brave girls yoojung. So it must be one of them if the rumour is true. But i'm not sure who "fits" the most for it.

For solar, there was the whole Hwayobi controversy where she made fun of a condition she had and netizens don't like to forgive anything, being really secretive about her past, and some normal pettiness from netizens because of her PS.

>True, I wish more anons were into it for the gossip alone kek

same, the industry is so messy and so juicy it's a goldmine of gossip. I used to be so into the onehallyu rumour threads even if 99% of them were bullshit. Now OH is (even more) cancer and there are no interesting places t discuss kpop without teens and preteens coming with their bullshit shipping, delusions, insults to everyone who dares speculate about anything other than straight couples or whatever else.
Like, i'm aware it's 90%-95% fanservice and camera love and they would get sacrificed to the gods if any dared to come out, i'm not stupid, but i still wanna gossip lmao.

Huh! I never seen that yeri screencap, interesting. Honestly, SM seems to be one of the more "open" agencies as far as diverse goes, so i wouldn't doubt that they do have a lot of lgbt hired.
Some more rumours i remembered:
>Hong seo chon saying there were A LOT of same sex idol couples going to his restaurant in secret so they wouldn't get caught (so fangirl theories of everyone is straight cancelled) and a lot of times, from the same group.
>Key (from shinee) dating that male model in a super obvious way, with lovestagram and everything, it was top notch back in the day. Basically everyone knew it except for the deniers, he didn't even try to hide it.
>Jo kwon being in a gay bar in thailand (i think) (what a surprise that was kek)
>Enhyuk and Donghae supposedly buying an apartment together in china (iirc) with the blessing of their mothers.
>And a lot of people believe Hyeri (girls day) to be bi-curious or lesbian, but i personally think she just likes messing around with girls but is actually straight tbh.

Gif not related to anything, i just think they are really cute.

Nothing could have ever prepared me for how horrible they sound, not just Momo, all of them are extremely bad. If Tzuyu supposedly improved just how goddamn awful did she sound beforehand? And Jihyo/Jeongheon/Nayeon aren't "eating CDs" either.
It's a miracle that none of the other idols's faces slipped, it must be infuriating to see a bunch of cheerleaders breaking records for basically nothing. Their fans excuses are so pathetic. People can say that they're know for their "difficult" dances or that it was just a bad day but it's a lie. (And don't even get me started on them using Jonhyun/Sulli/Hara to shield them from the haterz…) The thing that angers me the most is something ratmys are also guilty of always doing:
>It's not their fault! They're not getting vocal leassons/they're trained wrong!
They're millionaires in their mid 20s, they can hire coaches themselves. And judging by the fact that they have time to date and go to clubs they're not that busy either. Normal people are supposed to be good at their job right from the start while idols get years to "improve". Face it, they simply don't want to, because they give a shit about their music. How can you spend so much time defending a person who doesn't know you exist while said person doesn't even give you what you paid for? I know that 4th gen cares more about performance but at the end of the day kpop is still a music genre which should involve singing.

All articles about this always conveniently leave out Bighit's name, because of course the bestest and wokest company would never treat their staff and idols badly…

Even tho I'm still salty about my Exo oppars being forced into an embarrassment of a group with bully Scamyong and Wayv (including humiliating fanservice with them), I welcome anything that triggers ratmys kek
>Bts mentions grammy in every interview, Suga just recently rapped about it
>ratmys skip school and work to stream 24/7
>also ratmys: a-awards are overrated/meaningless anyway! and besides, kpoppies cheated! what did they do to earn this?!

I thought maybe the rest of the girls were secretly supporting Mina but after reading that they all went to her house and basically gaslighted her I’m not so sure anymore. Guess this is it for AOA.

Anonymous 6444

Yeah the whole thing was nuts. It feels really rare to see a huge scandal for a girl group like this one. I didn't see much backlash for Mina though? It's definitely over for AOA now though which sucks since I really like Seolhyun.

Anonymous 6445

At least they got rid of her, sucks that it was a little too late but I guess AOA were already past their prime so FNC is probably not that concerned about losing them as a group. I was never a huge fan but I did like some of their older stuff, always hated Jimin's parts though, she has an incredibly grating voice.

I'm particularly disappointed that no one stood up for Mina, and now I can't help but dislike Seolhyun by association considering she was bff with Jimin. I just saw that Youkyung came forward and also gave hints of having gone through the same stuff Mina did, I'm wondering if perhaps ChoA was in the same boat as them and that's why she jumped ship when she saw the chance.

Anonymous 6446

Their comeback after they went on Queendom flopped so they'll just put the group on indefinite hiatus while the members hide until people move on. Though I like Seolhyun it's impossible for her to come out of this clean. It's hard to play it off as "just for show" when you get matching tattoos lmao. I thought about Choa too but I doubt we'll hear about anything from her. FNC seems like a mess in general which makes me wonder about their other groups.

Anonymous 6474

Mina was following all of the members on social media minus Jimin before this all started. It was clear there was bad blood between her and Jimin. She obviously doesn't feel that way about the rest of the members, so I doubt they bullied her. Maybe they were complacent, but she obviously has no issue with how they treated her.

My bet is on SEVENTEEN, although I believe they have been out there for a while now and still haven't had their big break, which is kinda surprising tbh, I legit think they are talented (for an idol group that is), at the very least I can't immediately pin point the useless member.

Males be hitting the wall before they turn 25 kek The reson they look so bad with this styling >>6487 is because they're simply not attractive enough to rock simple clothes, they need their old colorful hair and outfits to distract from their plain or downright botched faces.

SVT's obvious shortcoming is that the midget seems to have long lost the ability to make a GP-friendly hit. Their digitals are kind of weak even by BG standards.

But, SVT has already become a million seller with their latest mini (in their 1st week of sales, if I may add) and bet BP on mucore. If that isn't considered 'big' then what is? I don't think any group is going to get as ridiculously big as BTS anytime soon, if ever.

Different shows have different scoring criteria. BP crushes other groups on inkigayo because the scoring is heavily biased towards digitals but they likely won't do well against a top BG on something like mubank where physicals triumph. I don't keep up with BP but I heard they won nothing for KTL, and inki's the only music show they perform on these days?

Their songs are really boring… the ones that are catchy are soooo repetitive like aju nice, left and right… both could be only 2 min long because the chrous get old pretty quick
Also they have like 1 and a 1/2 visual members out of frigging 13 people?! Only Mingyu is a solid visual the others are like… really depends on the styling and my mood in the day

As some anons already said: KTL didnt win anything but 1 show and it was kinda robbed tbh but they were also against BTS which is the biggest group. For this cb they as far as i've kept up they lost to seventeen once bc they realeased the song in the mid of the week and also lost this past week to Red Velvet's Seulgirene because they had better physical numbers

Oh I'm counting MORE THAN ONE as a 1/2 visual to be honest. That chinese guy Jun looks good in some MVs/photos but in others he looks like an asian WeHo twinky. Maybe Dino and Vernon could be a 1/8 visual each. I'm not that familiar with their names/faces so I'm open to being convinced.

I'm not sure which article you're referring to but Lay has this routine for every (solo) comeback of his in which he leaves comments/profusely interacts with Exo members on social media… after promos he doesn't bother much.
I mean… they're all civil in SNS, I just don't think that means they genuinely care about each other kek

Have you seen that he's dating Gfriend Sowon tho?? Good for him, she's cute!

oh my god no why did you have to say that, now I won't be able to unsee it. Hopefully he won't end up being a creep

I was just reading about the rumors and tbh it seems pretty possible that they are dating. Wishing them good luck though because if fans find out i'm pretty sure both gfriend and svt would take a heavy… hit

'Twinky', 'gay' & 'feminine' applies to 99% of kpop idols, I'm not really well-versed in american regional stereotypes and I've never watched Rupaul's Drag Race. Doesn't really narrow it down for me. Oh well.

Did anyone see FNC is threatening to take legal action against people spreading rumors regarding Seolhyun? It seems AOA is pretty much done for. That said it would be hilarious if it turns out to be true.

Highly doubt it, I don’t think it’s active enough for it to be shut down. I’m ok with moving the thread to another chan though, I preferred lolcow because it was much more active but the mods took the fun away a long time ago. Plus all the sperg and mindless hate, I love making fun of K-pop as much as as everyone else but some anons take it too seriously

They're popular because they look attractive, even compared to other female idols, that's literally it.

As an Exofag I hate this so much… it seems like most older fans have long accepted that they split and either stick to Exo or the chinese members but kiddies born after their debut push uwu "Lay and them love each other! They're even his lockscreen, what are you gonna say now stupid haters?!" I like having biases and siding with parties but nowadays kpop fans are obsessed with the delusional image of "my group genuinely loves each other, they're soulmates, they're gonna be together forever, they'll never leave each other, they're not interested in solo careers!", see also e.g. ratmys with the little 7 in their handles.
Lay is making dozens of millions every single year, he very likely owns more than the rest of Exo combined, do you really think he still cares…? And to the others he's a traitor just like the rest of the China line. You can't use the Exo name without putting in any work, it's been literal years since he last was active with them.

His image in China is being pure/naive, so people who dislike him obviously say that it's all an act (and I mean, he's the leader of the communist youth party, so…) Part of that image is also being friends with everybody, so of course he could never abondon his old group. He doesn't need Exo, his name alone is big enough already in China, he needs them for "you're such a good/loyal person"-propaganda reasons. Another super annoying thing he does is mentioning in every single interview/tv show that he tied sandbags to his waist to become better at dancing and of course everybody always has to shower him with compliments for being hardworking and with concern because he's in sooo much pain…
In general he's just so overrated. He has a gigantic head, super short legs, his voice is high and thin, his rapping is cringy (and his lyrics!…) and he definitely also isn't a better dancer than Kai like many love to claim (watch his dance with Kai and Hyeyeon to see just how much he lacks in stage presence and charisma, he literally looks like he's about to get cucked by the two of them lol). Has anybody listenend to his new song? He basically only talks a couple of words and paid a shit load of money to create perfect patriotic mv so of course the chinese ate it up.
You might say "Why do you watch stuff with him, if you hate him so much?" but him, Jackson, Wang Yibo and all the other (former) chinese kpop idols are literally everywhere in China, so it's not difficult to imagine just how rich he is already (plus chinese variety shows pay A LOT more than korean ones)
Pic related is just one of the many shows he hosts - with 3 out of the 4 MCs again being kpop idols.

>I gave them so many chances but they just aren't appealing to me at all
lmao that's exactly me with exo. Even non-fans insist their discography is one of the best so I went through half dozen of their title tracks on Youtube on two separate occasions. Didn't make it to the end of any except one.

Frankly, I think anyone who's into kpop for the music is either lying to themselves, or dumb as rocks.

Anonymous 6547

She should never have left JYP.

Anonymous 6549

I think he hasn't broken his contract with SM bc he has a lot of room to grow in China tho. He's nowhere near as popular as Luhan and Kris. And I know a lot of Chinese Exo-Ls also think he's fake and prefer Korean members over him. So there's that.
I actually like the timbre of his voice, it's very poppy. But he's def a weak singer. It's sad watching clips from DVDs and seeing his vein popping out for a not so high note. He struggles.

I didn't know the Hong Kong traitor Jackson Wang was in so many shows in China. He's another one just waiting to not renew with JYP. Maybe got7 will disband this year we shall see.

>I think anyone who's into kpop for the music is either lying to themselves, or dumb as rocks.

Uh idk if you think every pop music stan is dumb then ok. It's not like there's this huge gap in quality between some American pop girl songs and kpop, they all share a lot of American and Swedish/Nordisk composers sooo idk
I for one haven't bought any merch since I began liking kpop. I just watch MVs and listen to my spotify playlist and of couse am very into the gossipy side (any celebrity gossip).
I know I'm the exception tho and most people are drawn by the idol/fan relationship so I'd partially agree with your statement.

>I didn't know the Hong Kong traitor Jackson Wang was in so many shows in China. He's another one just waiting to not renew with JYP.
Apparently being a traitor pays off, I think he hosts 3 shows (2 of them with Lay) atm? Plus being a guest mc and a normal guest in plenty others. So he's definitely doing very well. If he wasn't so short he'd likely try and go into acting too.

>He's nowhere near as popular as Luhan and Kris.

Their popularity will never not be baffling to me, seriously why? Lay at least is in many shows and releases songs frequently but them? Luhan's looks have detoritated since his Exo days and he's been dating for a long time already, yet he's one of the top earners in the entire entertainment industry. I read that he can get several k for a single episode in a variety show, meaning 1 day of filming (while korean idols often do it for free). His music is lacklustre and in movies he stands out like a sore thump next to the average, much taller, manlier, handsomer etc young actor lol
I never found Kris attractive and if I remember right he also wasn't that popular while still in Exo, his "music" is a joke, everybody mocks him for his "acting" so where does his popularity and money come from? Tao is the least famous but his father is rumored to be a literal billionaire (or at least filthy rich) so he doesn't need to worry about anything anyway.

Anonymous 6553


Samefag, but pic related is what I mean with Luhan (and Kris) looking weird or bad in movies: kpop idols shave off their jaws and any other prominent bones in their face to look cuter and softer but once they hit their 30s they start melting. The other actor is a decade younger than him but looks so much more natural and manly. Luhan is like a mix between little boy and grandma and also always needs longish or odd hair to not look straight up ugly.

Anonymous 6554

Omg is this Kris?! Nightmare inducing. He's popular on the grounds that he's tall enough to pull high fashion i guess, a little like Sehun

I never found Kris particularly attractive but oh shit, that beard doesn't suit him at all, his face is just… way too soft for it? idk it looks weird. Embrace your twinkness Kris.

Somi was fucked by her Kris Jenner dad. I think she's cute and has more stage presence than most female idols out there (looking at half of twice here) but not enough to make it solo.

>>Frankly, I think anyone who's into kpop for the music is either lying to themselves, or dumb as rocks.
You can genuinely enjoy kpop for what it is: mindless, boppy pop music. Now, the issue here is when your average kpop BTS tard goes the "omg musical geniuses! their songs are so deep" route and pretends that their idols are actually full blown artists and not entertainers. I remember reading an interview (or q&a session not sure) long ago where a member mentioned that he always wanted to perform but didn't believe he was talented enough to become a solo act, so the best option was going the idol route. That level of honesty I can actually admire lol

I don't think BIGBANG will ever recover from their past scandals. Seungri being an actual criminal (regardless of being punished by the law or not)? TOP suicide attempt? GD dragon smoking weed for the 100 time? if they make it I honestly quit humanity.

Anonymous 6557

I always had a soft spot for her. Both knets and ifans were so cruel to her and her parents are awful too. There are so many much more untalented and uglier idols out there, who are in groups of 10+ members but her, a barely legal girl doing the same work alone, gets ripped to shreds. Why are your oppars given years to improve, getting praise for the tiniest bit of work but she needs to be perfect immediately? She's clearly more talented than most Twice members and prettier than Itzy. People even shit on her for her stage presence, when that was pretty much the main reason on why she won produce. She's also the only idol I ever saw getting blamed for signing with a bad agency, all others only get pity, although at that time she was underage, had gotten a taste of fame thanks to ioi and therefore obviously absolutely wanted to debut asap.

To me they are a little better than the others bc 1. they still care about proper vocal training. 2. their older acts get less promo, but at least are not put in the dungeon or just disband (YG and JYP style). They only screwed up with Fx bc of the Sulli and Krystal situation.

Anonymous 6587

I have a soft spot for Somi too but she just doesn't have the chops for being a soloist. She should've stayed at JYP or at least debuted in another group so she isn't the sole focus.
Seventeen are big at this point there's no denying it. Imo they are like the bg version of Izone. They have a huge fandom but neither group has had a huge hit. That's the only thing really keeping them from being recognized like other top groups.
I think they release the best music by far.

They did stuff like bundles to artificially increase their sales, and now BTS offers different versions of their single too, knowing exactly that each of their retard fans are gonna buy all.

Justin Bieber and Harry Styles were cute teen boys, it's only normal for teen girls to be attracted to them, you can't really compare that to the botched mess in their late 20s that BTS is. I totally understand women prefering attractive young men over hairy, muscly, fat "manly" men but BTS aren't attractive at all. Why simp for them instead of the plenty other much more attractive twinky dudes out there? If you have yellow fever and absolutely need an asian guy, there are plenty of cute korean boys on yt or insta too. Or other more attractive kpop idols e.g. why go for jimincel when younger, taller, cuter eunwoo exists?
