Reposting from previous thread.

SM posted a highlight video for upcoming NCT 127 album. It sounds pretty good. Regular sounds kind of sexy, so I'm hyped for some cool choreography and shots of the group. I'm happy it doesn't sound too latin.

What do you NCT fans think?

No. 11972

What do you think about GOT7's comeback? I personally really liked it, most of the solos were good (except Party, what the fuck was that, Bambam). I'm a bit sad Lullaby wasn't more successful.

No. 11973

Sounds nice so far, I wonder if the other version of regular will be in Spanish or something. And yeah, I'm also glad they didn't go full despacito. Wonder what the irregular songs will be like…

Johnny's little lisp is so cute in that interlude btw

I really liked it, too!
Somehow the vibe reminds me a little of older Shinee songs (but I think I just make that connection with any disco-ish dance songs in K-Pop).

Gotta say though, I liked Look better.
The solo songs are alright, I am not sure why Jaebum has so many highnotes again when he always messes them up live…

Did anyone pre-order the album?
What edition/photocards did you get?

I got Mark's edition but hoped for Jinyoung (rip)
Also I got a REALLY awkward photocard of Youngjae, it's so weird that it's funny again.

I'm trying to find someone to trade with but it seems like everyone hold onto their Jinyoung Editions and Photocards really well.

Wish me luck, anons

I'm new to NCT and listened to just some of their songs. There is this one guy, I really like his voice everytime I listen to The 7th Sense and I looked up who he is, his name is Jaehyun. Doyoung's voice is nice too. Can you guys recommend some other NCT songs?

No. 11976

Did you listen to Boss? It's the latest NCT U comeback. There's some nice vocals from Doyoung and Jungwoo.

I also really liked Yestoday, it's more rap but Doyoung sings the chorus really nicely. Jaehyun sings the chorus in Whiplash too.

For an actual ballad with both you should listen to "Without You".

There's so little of him since he kind of disappeared after Seventh Sense for a while. I think he suits solo stuff more. I liked New Heroes but it was a bit lacking for me, nice vocals but too short and I didn't like the drop.

I was impressed he had such a nice voice, you can really tell on Baby Don't Stop. I think SM was a bit unsure what to do with him at the start since he was a rapper on Seventh Sense, then disappeared, now a singer but he doesn't seem to be a part of any particular unit. It's still in progress.

In any case he gets a lot more than other NCT members get, so he's a bit more lucky. Also he cute as well, just watch him on this Disney show they did as ROOKIES <3

I just received it a couple of days ago! I got Jinyoung's version, he looks really good and the photos are really well done, he kind of reminds me of a prince. I was lowkey hoping for Jackson, although I got his lyrics card so it's okay. As for the photocards I got Mark, Bambam and Youngjae, he also looks awkward in mine lol.
Honestly I was very surprised, there were a ton of extras, I pretty much ended up with something from each member. I really liked the preorder postcards too.

I want to see more of Kun, I hope they don't mess with his nose. I don't know if he already had surgery, but I like that it's bigger than most idols. I can just image the SM surgeons being like "ooh you would look perfect with a smaller nose". Please don't, he's a cutie already.

I still liked it, but I thought the whole thing was put together quickly, the arragment of lullaby felt really off to me on the first few listens and the dance is too intense for the song. Youngjae especially struggles it seems. He's my bias but if the dance is too hard for the weakest dancer it brings the whole group down.

Is there any newly debuted/about to debut boy groups that have caught you eye? I always find it hard to get in to groups that have been around awhile because they have too much content to go through

No. 11997

Not actually a boy group, and they are not pretty idols per say lol. It's a group of solo artists that get together, and they are super good. I included them on the previous thread.

There's 5 of them, almost all rap and sign. They have two other tracks that are really good Blah and Blind. Also they released Igoholic recently.

Regarding actual boy groups I haven't seen anything that caught my eye. I saw several new ones but they were pretty boring in my opinion.

No. 11998

Also Stray Kids. It's the only mayor one that is getting actually popular. They are pretty good in my opinion, they had a comeback recently but I didn't like it much. But they also released "Awkward Silence" alongside it and it was soo good, they are really cute.

If you like it check out their other MVs from this year. There's a lot considering they are new.

I remember seeing these guys and thinking they were really cute, at least on this MV. I'm not sure if they debuted already? I see a lot of dance performances, so I'm not totally sure what's up with them.

The asthetics were really cool on some songs, I really liked Eclipse especially. And I liked the idea of introducing one member at a time, I just think they should had done it in less time, a year it's too much to be debuting people. Maybe like 2 girls per month.

Also, I honestly think they didn't live to the hype. Their actual releases as a group were really boring and super crowded. I didn't like them much, but maybe it's not for me since I only liked the girl crush tracks and not the poppy ones. And they seem to go more poppy than "badass".

Xiao I'm not sure if he already had ps before to be honest, his face is kind of too good to be true. But he certanly doesn't need more.

>You know, I don't get why so much love for Johnny? He's really popular with fans, but he's hardly at the front or singing. Was he very popular during ROOKIE era?
from what i understand johnny was very popular from rookie days and fans essentially pressured sm into letting him debut + he had been training for maaaany years (since he was like 13? 14 maybe? idk) so people felt it was long overdue.

he reaches out a lot to fans through twitter (especially i-fans since he often tweets in a language they understand) responding to random comments and people become familiar with him through night night, so i guess he seems approachable and close to fans/easy to talk to which is definitely in his favor since a huge part of the whole idol thing is ~selling dreams~ and being ~bf/gf material~. ngl i fall for that shit hook line and sinker when it comes to him bc i love the guy and he just keeps growing on me. he’s also kind of the dad of the group and since nctzens are so protective of the members and /especially/ the dreamies that probably helps boost his popularity too.

not to mention him being such a fucking loser and cringelord so openly ♡

so basically instead of being popular because he gets a lot of lines/screentime, people demand more lines/screentime for him because he’s popular. hah. so kind of the opposite of taeyong, i guess. (who i love, no shade intended.)

No. 12050

Same anon you replied to. That makes sense, yeah no shade either I was just confused at to why he had so many fans. I like watching reactions online since I have no friends that like kpop, and I was confused as to why the love even on the first video I saw with him. I just got into NCT a year ago so I was not very familiar with things prior to that.

He really is endearingly cringe, same with Mark. He acts all swag but then I saw that video of him rapping on a Disney show lol so cute <3

I wish Taeyong had more interaction with fans, maybe he does with kfans I'm not sure. I'm so intrigued by him and how cutely awkward he his on interviews. It clashes a lot with his stage persona and past history, even though I don't think it was such a big deal what he did. He was suuuper young and who knows what family situation he had to do that. I saw that clip of him crying and I don't see him faking it. So it's sad to me he gets so much shade, he must be really shy and nice in private. At least I haven't seen clips of him being a bitch or anything.

I can see him being a bit annoying at the most lol on LA interviews the idiot wont stop talking nonsense on the background. He's so excited to talk in English, so cute <3

I watched some interviews and several of them do try to speak more English, so I have higher hopes for them on Jimmy.

They really are huge, but I looove them. He looks freaky on this gif lol I wonder if he uses contacts? I don't think so, since I've never seen any photo that made me think he uses something to enlarge his irises… and they do look the same on his kid photos.

Taeyong is the only idol I feel may have had some minor details like fillers from time to time, but he never had ps and I'm sure of it. He gets a lot of hate from people saying he did his whole face, but he literally looks the same on his childhood photos.

But people really like looking for ps that is not there. I guess that's what happens when most of idols are fake.

Yeah, I don't really blame people for thinking ty has had a bunch of ps when even multiple other nct members have gotten ps (jisung, taeil, ten, jaehyun, yuta, doyoung, johnny, lucas, jungwoo I think, etc.). He probably has had some ps.

He probably has, but nothing mayor. He has a protuding jaw, and a bumpy nose, so those seem super natural and his own. If he did have ps somewhere, it's hardly noticeable. I think what I meant is that people want to say he did his whole face, when the dude was just naturally gifted with good features.

SM does fuck up faces, so I'm hoping he has enough self control not to allow them. But I really doubt it.

Korea's ps is a shit show, someone shared Lee soo-hyuk recent ps on the Critical thread and I wanted to cry. He was literally so good looking and I can't understand his decision to fuck up all of his best features.

Since this thread basically became about hot guys, is there any Korean actor that you guys like?

I don't think they are bitchy at all, but I have my doubts about Jungwoo's personality. He seems super fakely adorable most of the time.

Doyoung’s eyes look massive too but I think it has more to do with the rest of his facial features being so small and doll-like and his face being quite slim. His eyes are also very round and doe-like. I definitely see the rabbit resemblance.

Idk apart from the jaw I think he looks quite similar (at least as far as predebut-postdebut idol comparisons go). He’s definitely had work done, I’m not delusional, but I could still tell that’s Doyoung from space. Also the upper left pic set in your compilation is super adorable

He looks the same but with a jaw shave. I kind of wish they didn't do it, just to see how he would look like with styling, weight loss etc. I think he would had looked very handsome.

Right now he's really cute but his face is a bit odd on the jaw. Like, it doesn't look BAD, but you can tell it's not natural. He looks sort of feline and I kind of like it.

Yeah, SM gets a bad rap for bad surgeries, but at least for now they still look pretty human lol they are getting more and more popular now and that's when shit hits the fan so I hope they stay as natural as possible.

Taeil is another that had a weird nose job, it's kind of small, but I guess it elevated him from regular dude to more "flower boy" to fit the idol image. Pre debut he was really average.

Jaehyun jaw shave is kind of bad too sometimes, the chin is so soft and loose I don't like it, but it does fit korean beauty standards, so it may be my taste only.

He looks so skinny there lol, it's very ken doll, not sure if photoshoped or he was skinnier at some point. But he never looks like that on selfies.

I don't think Jisung's nose is the worst thing ever, it's still a normal size, but the issue with most nose jobs is that the nostrils end up so much in view that it gives a very dainty feel to their faces. I really can't understand why anyone would do ps on a kid SO young. I hope for his sake that it turns out alright.

Taeil with that red hair may be the worst combination I've see as of now, god it's so ugly. Jungwoo at least looks cute sometimes, but nothing can save that Ronald Mcdonald.

No. 12093

I don't know, SM should've thought that through before getting everyone's hopes up. Cramming everything in at the end of the year was a horrible idea.

By the time they debut, Kun will have been in nct for a full year, yet the only songs he's only been in are black on black (ugh) and the chinese version of without you.

Idk, probably a month or so after 127 is back from their tour.

No. 12094

You're right lol Kun's fans must be pissed. He really didn't deserve to debut that way, I hope they give him enough screentime on the NCT China MV. Imagine if it's full of the rookies and he has like 2 lines lol the new Winwin.

Is there any video of Kun singing live or dancing or something that showcases his talent? I've only seen videos of him talking to the Dreamies and such. He's a sweetheart but I want to see how he is on stage. Also, no black on black fancam, poor guy is mostly standing on the background. I really hate that performance, I hope they don't do it on USA. I bet seeing it from far away it's super cringe, the dances are really dumb looking too.

I doubt they'll bring the whole gang to USA, just 127.

Cherry bomb is definitely repetitive, but they showcase every member of 127 and it's a really cool dance. Black on black looks cool with Korean camera work, but the dances look awkward on my opinion. Also, since they add all the members you hardly get to see most of them, they just act as background to the rappers and Ten's solo. At most you notice Jisung, Taeyong, Lucas, Mark, Jeno, Yuta and Ten. Don't get me wrong it's very well coordinated but not all members dance as well as the actual dancers, so you can tell by watching one or the other that it looks off.

I just don't get why it had to be done, it's better to see separate units performing.

The only thing I enjoyed was Taeyong's part and beautiful sparkly choker. He looked divine on the performances. The teasers were hot as fuck too.

i actually find doyoung super pretty with his jaw shave lol. jaw shaves in general are a terrible idea because of the health risks but as far as aesthetics go doyoung is beautiful. there’s something so doll-like and ethereal about him.

like another anon mentioned he looks kind of feline and other anons in previous threads compared him to a barbie doll which i also think is quite accurate. yes it can be uncanny when he looks like a literal mannequin but overall he just looks super pretty and interesting to me.

I like Tende, Baby Don't Stop is cool too.
Try Again is heavenly, I love it so much. Jaehyun kinda reminds me of Suho.

I fucking hate that shit. Yeah it looks cool but what dumbass decided it was a good idea to have Mark stand on Jaemin’s back?

Also I love Yongie but that part was kind of in bad taste. He’s already getting a lot of shit for hogging screentime and lines and then some shitfuck has the brilliant idea to have him literally stand on top of the others. It effectively boosts his retarded akgaes who view other members as props, pisses off fans of the other members by enforcing the idea that he’s the most important and fuels the antis who screech about how overhyped and ~favored~ he is. I get it’s muh dork aesthetic but it’s just such a stupid thing of the choreographers to do. Now both his antis and akgaes have fuel and fans of other members are reaching peak-Taeyong, congratulations.

Oh yes, that part with Jaemin was terrible. I'm glad they are not performing the song anymore.

Yeah, I hate people getting angry at Tae just because he gets so much screentime, I'm sure it's not his decision. But I still don't really hate it, he's clearly the leader even if there's no official NCT leader. The other members even state it. And he deserves it, the dude has a lot of charisma on stage. I do think the pyramid was cool but not fair to all, and stans really hate a member not getting recognition.

He did own that shit lol proud as fuck. I can't hate on him. A lot of people say he's a narcissist but I don't see it. He just really knows how to carry himself on stage, and SM clearly knows it. Hs the best one to grab new fans attention.

His face looks so different now (he ruined himself) yet I didn't see a single comment about it. When I said I didn't recognize him in some of his newer photos I was attacked by the rabid armys: "OMG that's called not knowing what he looks like!" and "When did he have time to get any surgery, huh!"

I took my sister to a BTS concert a bit ago since she'd been begging to go to one for years and her mom wouldn't take her. Blogpost incoming. Here are some judgements on the members from someone who doesn't really know/care about kpop beyond occasionally skimming the threads here and some stuff my sister has said.

>J-Hope: I thought he had a good attitude and was energetic. His solo performance was good too, but I don't remember it that well because I spent most of it trying to dodge the girl next to me who was have a ton of fun dancing and definitely would have elbowed me in the face. He is kind of weird looking but I don't have any complaints about him, I think that he did a good job and wasn't annoying.

>Jungkook: He didn't really do anything wrong, but he just not as good at singing as I thought he would be and was frequently off-tune. It means he actually sang live though right? (kek) I thought he put more effort into his english speech at the end than any of the other members did, and tried saying something more than "love you guys UWU" He's my sister's favorite but came off as pretty dull and uninteresting imo, though he seemed genuine
>Jimin: He was good at dancing and I was surprised at how decent his vocals sounded live since I heard a lot of bad things about his live singing in the other thread and from my sister. ….Up until the time when he didn't have his mic up to his mouth but his voice was still playing. I get that all kpop singers probably sing over a track, but I don't think he sang a single word live all night. He did seem embarrassed after this, but the screw up was one of my favorite parts of the concert! I loved being able to see a moment like that live. He also very noticeably would want to put his arm around/stand near/whatever the person who was currently singing their part (and therefore being filmed) for that sweet, sweet bonus screentime. I also thought his legs were looking kinda spoopy. Other than that, I don't think he's as weird looking irl as he is in his pictures.
>RM: Everyone says J-Hope looks super botched, but I think RM is getting there too. He looks like he has had a lot of work done, especially if you've seen some of his older photos. That aside, he was nice enough and I think he performed well. He put together a little speech about how they tried to make every show special or whatever, and I'm sure their fans liked it but it seemed kind of forced. I noticed that he didn't translate for the other members, but they had an actual translator.
>V: Even though I thought Suga is supposed to be the grumpy member, V seemed to have a really bad attitude! He didn't smile at all until the encore and I remember thinking that if I was his fan, I would have been kind of disappointed with how he acted. His singing was also quite bad, since he just kind of shouted. At one point during a slow song, he tried to do an ad lib part and it sounded pretty awful. At that point, I looked over at my sister and even she looked over at me and kind of cringed. His English was nearly unintelligible (does he have a lisp or is his accent just super strong?) but other than kind of coming off as a douche he actually does look great irl. His stage presence was not strong though, so he was kind of easy to forget about.
>Jin: I always thought he was the useless member from what I'd read, but he seemed to be by far the best singer in the group. I don't know anything about technique so by this I just mean he sounded the best to me. This surprised me because in the recorded tracks, he stands out the least in my opinion. I was actually very impressed by his solo performance. He sounded great in the couple of ad lib parts he did too. If he was lipsyncing as well, at least he had the good sense to not get caught! I don't think he was though. He didn't seem to have a strong personality, and didn't stand out much. I always thought he was on the unpopular side, so I was surprised to see that he was a crowd favorite
>Suga: Didn't really give off a rude or grumpy vibe at all, and in fact was likable. His solo performance was one of my favorites. I don't really know how to judge the merit of a kpop rapper, but I think he was pretty good. He didn't bother trying to speak english for the most part, but judging by the others' english "efforts" it was probably a good call. They had a translator for what he said in korean, and it was better than just hearing "love you armys XDDD" for the 17th time so I preferred that.

There was a ton of hard to watch fanservice. After Jimin accidentally exposed his own lipsyncing crimes, they all starting pulling up his shirt to…comfort him? Distract the audience? And then they did it to other members. Honestly very uncomfortable, but my sister loved it. Gross.
They actually danced a lot less than I expected them to, but I was happy that they played one of their songs that I like called "Run". Most of their music isn't my cup of tea though, and they had live arrangements that in general sounded much worse than the original CD tracks. It's like they wanted even their songs that weren't shitty EDM to sound more like shitty EDM.
The coolest part to me was the fan's lightsticks. They were controlled by an app, so they could to a ton of crazy stuff. They lit up in different sections making stripes, did a sparkly rainbow, waves and whatnot. At one point a member said something about how he loved the color purple, and the lightsticks all turned purple. It was neat. I'm glad I was in a perfect spot to watch the lightsticks.
Overall it was pretty fun, and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would be able to. It was awesome that I was seated right behind a mom and got to sit down the whole time and still see what was going on. I looked behind me at one point, and a whole row of people were all sitting down behind us. I'm sure it was the parents and chaperones row.
If my sister wants to go again next year or whenever they come back (and I'm sure she will), I'll probably take her.

Did any of you go to the recent BTS concerts and if so what did you think? Who is your favorite member? I think I liked Suga the best and V the least.

im taking my sister to see them too anon, in london this week!

>His singing was also quite bad, since he just kind of shouted.

that's V's trademark lol. he's quite overrated in my opinion, but he gets attention because of his face.

>After Jimin accidentally exposed his own lipsyncing crimes, they all starting pulling up his shirt to…comfort him? Distract the audience?

lol anon. ugh i hate it when they do this, jimin is an absolute fanservice machine but i find it very hard to watch someone lose their dignity like that, acting or not. if they start ill have to take a quick bathroom break kek

>Who is your favorite member?

jungkook is my favourite and closely followed by jhope and suga. in contrast with V, i think poor jhope is quite underrated due to his busted face, he seems to be the best performer from what ive seen.

overall, im looking forward to the lights and show/dancing/costume design more than the singing honestly lol. although i am looking forward to seeing jk perform euphoria

No. 12226

It all comes down to them being overworked, I'm sure they'd give better performance if they didn't promote 24/7 all year. They just don't have any time to improve and Bighit gives zero fucks about their improvement. Jin and Jungkook have the most stable vocals but they are given songs that are too hard for them, I think. They debuted as a hip hop group with a supposedly strong rapline but now their songs have long singing parts and it does them no favors.

No. 12227

this is exactly how I imagined it to be.
I did notice they don't perform many choreographies anymore, which was the main reason why I started liking them since No more dream.

>Who is your favorite member

Definitely the dance line, Jimin, Jhope and Jungkook. I used to like the rap one but as you can see.. there is no much rap left but I anticipate their Tear performance.

You don't usually see Doyoung with that type of expression, I almost didn't recognize him wow.

TY is going full trashy this comeback with the hair and the bling, and I can't decide if I hate it or love it lol we'll see how the actual MV is.

>it’s funny how they whine and piss about us supposedly ruining ~the only place they can criticize kpop without rabid fangurls~ when they’re the ones who keep talking about us while we don’t bring our nctzenship over to the critical thread

Yeah, the whole point of having a separate thread is for people to be able to fangirl withouth "bothering" the rest of the anons. We're pretty self aware so I don't get why so much hate. Someone even said we were saying lewd stuff, like lol only one person got pretty personal about Doyoung's chest on the last thread. It's usually only "this guy is so hot/pretty". Oh no, we like boys, sue me.

I also don't understand why so much hate about NCT's concept. It's not THAT hard guys, I learned all the members names in like half an hour and by seeing a couple of MVs of them. Why do people exaggerate so much? Reminds me of that Weekly Idol episode, I wanted to slap Doni so much…

Also I'm a 100% sure that fans on Critical are older fans of kpop that creamed their pants for the groups at the time, got over it and know are bashing new fans for liking newer groups. I refuse to believe they weren't fangirls at some point considering all the drama they know.

I enjoy the thread but the constant derails of anons being like "why do you know so much about this, why do you like this" are so fucking annoying. It's obvious we were ALL stans of at least one group at some point.

They act like we go to their thread and get angry at them for bashing NCT lol like fucking go ahead, I won't say anything. I even bash them a lot here myself kek

I just saw them in Citifield last night. I became a fan in 2016 but last year/this year their musical quality took a huge dip so I didn't care for them as much anymore. However, my friend wanted to see them but we didn't get tickets to the Newark shows. I was glad to bring her so she could see them. And in the end it paid off because Citified had fireworks and was outdoors. We were on the highest tier but we had a good view of the stage and the lightsticks. A shame they barely acknowledged their old discography, I guess they're too cool for that now.

>Favorite members

Jin because he has fairly decent vocals in the group and I'm sad bighit pays him dust while the rest of vocal line is so popular. I feel like I barely saw him in the concert except during his solo, closing statements and a few shots here and there. I found RM cringey at first (and it didn't help with his old controversies) but I feel like his writing/blogs are insightful sometimes. I disagree with V's English because I remember it was worse last year. I could tell he really tried. I like Suga too but he should stick to rapping.


I went last year to Newark NJ with my friends and the experience wasn't so bad, aside from being in Newark, but at Citifield the girls sitting around me were so obnoxious. They were obviously teenagers and kept yelling I LOVE YOU over and over even when the members weren't on stage and screaming in my ear. On the way home these kboos were trying to hit on unsuspecting Koreans in an extremely cringey way but thankfully they got off the train before it could escalate.

I can't think of anything too memorable besides the lightsticks and Jimin crying (and J-hope with his Mets mascot hat lol). I mostly care about BTS' music rather than the members and the Wings setlist > LY setlist. I think they did harder choreography in that era too; they are so obviously overworked this year but fans continue to praise Bighit for "treating them well" like, okay, sure. They pretty much said flat out they're doing more stadium tours next year so maybe I'll go with a friend again, but I miss their older music.

I really miss their old music anon, it makes so sad now, like what the fuck are they thinking?
I was really hyped with Her, even though it was really different from their previous albums.. but after that the whole LY series has been boring, the song fake love was actually good but that's it.

Out of the pre-LH discog, they did a medley of Attack on Bangtan, Dope, Fire, and Funtan Boys/Boys with Fun and I Need U/Run/Save me. In different stops I heard the medley changed and there was rumors they'd do two at Citifield, but they did only one medley. But even with Wings I remember they did Blood Sweat and Tears, Danger, ect… they didn't even acknowledge Spring Day either.

Same. HYYH and Dark&Wild probably remains their best work. I might be in the minority with this but I wish they would stop doing solos. I think they work much better in a group even though rapline and Jin barely do anything in title tracks anymore. It's like Jungkook, Jimin and V with 4 backup vocals. Some songs in LY grew on me but I can't imagine their music will get better for their next touring cycle.

No. 12235

I saw one of their Canadian shows and had a great time. J-hope stood out the most to me, he had really magnetic stage presence and the most energy.

wow, i guess I’m the only bts fan who likes their music more now.

Even though my favorite members are Jimin and Jungkook, I'm looking forward to J-Hope's performance the most, everyone says he's the most impressive on stage. Honestly I'm a bit disappointed there's all this fanservice, but well they have to cater to the fangirls so I understand.
As for the songs, I really want to see Epiphany and Outro: Tear (which was my absolute favorite of the LY era). A bit sad they don't perform Not Today, the choreography is quite impressive IMO.

That's the one album that I'd call good in the entire clusterfuck of group kpop music

I like everything about it from the styling to the music videos and short films, the story and literature references, the real stories behind the solo songs, even the trailer for the Wings tour looked pretty great. And of course, the tour setlist itself was really fun compared to the LY one. The stage costumes, the choreographies, the live band. Even the performances during the award shows that year were really something. They'll never be able to top the Wings era.

The mv, the choreo, and the song are all pretty messy. I wish they'd spent a little more time on this. But I'm not into boy groups for the music anyways so as long as it doesn't make me cringe into oblivion it's all more or less the same mediocre shit to me.

better than touch/10


They really went full chigga this time around. If I'm being completely honest, having 127 be on jimmy was doomed to be a cringefest from the start. U or Dream could've pulled it off, but pretty much all the songs 127 perform are cringy and regular doesn't seem like an exception.

No. 12246

Thanks for sharing this, anon. I think this is such a good neutral concert review. Our opinions are very similar.

Wings was pretty good and I liked the concept they went for. I love the aesthetic of that era, and I think the video for Blood Sweat & Tears is their best music video alongside with Spring Day. My favourites from the Wings era are Awake, Mama, Lie.

Music-wise, I think TMBMIL pt.2 was their best, all of the songs in this album were so good, Never Mind, Run, Butterfly, Whalien 52, Ma City, Baepsae, Dead Leaves, House of Cards. I love all of these songs.

I think Love Yourself era was weak compared to TMBMIL and Wings eras. School Trilogy wasn't the best musically, but as someone who loves hip hop, I enjoy their music from that era. I like the concepts for the LY albums but the overall sound they went for isn't my taste. I tried hard to like them but I find DNA, Best of Me, half of the songs in LY:T, Idol, I'm Fine very weak. There are some LY songs I love though, Sea, Outro: Her, Outro: Tear, Just Dance, Epiphany

All the solo songs but First Love were strong to me imho.

I’m genuinely annoyed Johnny didn’t get more lines/screen time in the fucking English release. If they’re going to force an English version of the song at least arrange it so the members who actually do speak English carry the song. I was excited for this because no-line line was getting lines but this was letdown. Johnny isn’t even my bias but holy fuck. This should’ve been JohnJaeMark’s show.

Also yeah I’m gonna say it. Taeyong being essentially the main focus of this version was retarded and a slap in the face to fans who stan other members. I love Taeyong and I’m still annoyed. His English pronunciation was unintelligible and the other members basically just had cameos.

Honestly, fuck this era more than Touch era. At least with Touch we knew what to expect and it wasn’t a total slap in the face to the English line.

I completely agree with this, it's kind of odd to see how much they disregard the other members. Also why even add Jungwoo if he didn't even sing? He kind of talk rapped a line…

I don't get too mad because I think the best performers ARE the ones that get the most screentime, and it seems logical to me.

I do hate this "I have money I'm cooler than you" era. I really wish it goes away and we get a completely different concept next time. I don't know why koreans think that douchebag swag is the way to enter American market, since BTS did the same shit with Mic Drop. They also kept at it and I'm worried NCT will do the same now. Once you go chigga you never go back? lol

It really is tragic but… I wonder if they care? Do you guys think Yuta, WW and Johnny really care about screentime? Like don't get me wrong, they are idols so I'm thinking they would like more attention on them, but do they want to be performers in the future? Not all idols actually want to rap/sing and be true "artists" (in kpop lol). Maybe they are happy were they are, just enjoying the ride. They have popularity but are not the main focus of criticism; Johnny has the radio job, is a DJ. Winwin I've seen excited about recording, but I never got any "passion" from him. Yuta I could see being pissed, but considering he's Japanese he could not had expected MUCH success on Korea, so…

I still wish they gave them more to do, but I don't really think they are having a bad time as some fans like to say. TY gets a lot of screentime, but you can just tell he really loves what he does and wants to go even further with it. So it makes sense SM "invests" more time on him.

I can understand the pissed fans though, and I do agree I would like less TY/Mark, but mostly so fans don't ultimately hate them for having more screentime than the rest.

Anyway, instrumental good, lyrics sucked, catchy as fuck though and got stuck on my head at first listen. Dance is weird as all hell and I can't make sense of it until they release the dance practice. Red velvet suits are tacky as fuck and I didn't like them.

It helps that I'm not a native speaker, so I can ignore the lyrics for the most part, but I'd like it so much better if it was in Korean. "Haters gon' be mad" is something a 12 y.o. youtuber would write in his diss track jfc.

I never realized I liked Haechan's voice so much until now, that's not the kind of voice I usually like and he sounds kind of funny and endearing at the same time. I'd comment on Johnny's vocals because he's my favorite, but yeah…

Shamelessly ripping off OP of >>12222 to do a writeup for the BTS concert in london last night. i went with my little sister. im a recent BTS fan who listened to a few of their songs VERY casually since about 2016 but got a lot more into them this year. i got into them during LY era but i prefer a lot of their old stuff.

the whole thing started with a big letdown because jungkook suffered a minor injury to his ankle in rehearsal and the medical team recommended he didnt dance to avoid making it worse. it was just an accident, not his fault, so its not like i held it against him, but at the same time, it did mean we got some odd-looking choreos, and for euphoria he just sat there and sang. it didnt help that jungkook is the centre a lot of the time, which left an odd gap thing in the performances. he sat on this stool on a wheeled platform, and three staff members were wheeling him on and off stage in between performances which was hilarious lol

aside from that, it was a good show.

jhope was great, he knew how to work the cameras and seemed to be having fun on stage. the only thing i would say is that his attempts at english were a little off, but they were appreciated all the same. after him, jimin was probably the best performer, and rapmon was okay at working the camera too, and interacted a lot with the crowd which was nice. it probably helps that he is the best at english. V and jin were utterly forgettable, stage presence-wise. i legit could have forgot they were there. jungkook was okay although it was pretty hard to judge since he was sitting on a stool basically the entire time. crowd-favourites, judging by noise, were jimin and V.

the vocals all sounded as expected for kpop really. i disagree with citifield anon - i think jin's performance was pretty mediocre, although i liked the way the stage was set up for his solo with a piano and smoke machine. actually, the stage settings and lights were great throughout. the best vocals were probably jungkook, but he was just sitting in a chair all night so that kinda makes sense. next was probably jimin, although he did sound a bit off during his solo - almost like there was a problem with his mic? V's vocals weren't bad all the time but they were wildly inconsistent, especially during the vocal line song, in which he shouted all his lines despite it being a calm slow ballad thing lol. they were okay in his solo though

rapline all sounded great live imo. their solos were performed nicely, despite jhope and rm's being pretty weak songs. suga's was great, and the choreo and stage design that went with it was really fitting and fun to watch.

they didnt do much fanservice, apart from this one bit where jimin and V hugged for no reason i guess. on the whole, the crowd was quite calm and restrained for a kpop concert, which may have been part of the reason. they were a lot less obnoxious than i expected. the girl next to me was a weird one though - she never sang along or even really spoke to the friend she had came with. instead, she stood up for every song and shook her army light stick mechanically, without stopping, like a robot. so that was a bit odd lol.

the speeches were a pretty nice touch. jungkook did his in korean because he was shaken from the incident with his injury, and did some apologising and stuff and then cried. i can understand why he would cry from the frustration/pressure, etc, but it was a bit awkward watching him break down. jhope made his speech next, in english, and shouted some stuff which was okay i guess. he was trying pretty hard to be the hopeful persona thing. then it was V, who also did it in english. his speech was actually pretty sweet and i could tell he put effort into it because it wasnt really simple english the entire time. jin did his speech in korean and honestly i dont remember anything he said. jimin did his in korean too, and it was mostly generic and then a bit about jungkook. suga's speech was also in korean and also sweet like V's. then rm did his speech in english, where he said some stuff about being happy to be in the UK charts because the UK and london have so many great musicians, which was nice to hear. then he reassured jungkook a bit which was nice.

overall, i think it was really good, although in the future id prefer if they have less solo stuff and more group choreos, which i think is what you expect from a kpop concert. however i can understand that that would make for a more taxing performance. also if i go again i really hope there arent any more injuries or complications, because watching the choreos with one member missing does look really odd at times, although BTS' crew did a good job of minimising the damage through good camera work.

sorry this got LONG AF, i tried to give a pretty thorough overview. overall i would definitely go again, and my sister says she would too.

Thank you for the writeup anon. I know it's not a serious injury but I was worried when I saw Bighit's announcement about Jungkook yesterday, and I was wondering how the London concert is going to be like. How was he throughout the show? I watched some videos from the concert and it made me happy to see the others supporting him during the performances, I hope he gets better soon.

No. 12273

he seemed okay through most of the show. he still wore the costumes and stuff, he just sat on a stool instead of danced. the camera focused on him during his lines. he did get upset during anpanman, where the other members were having fun on stage during the end of the show, but then jimin came over to sing with him and he seemed to cheer up. the other members also did come over to him quite a lot to make sure he was included which was nice. then he got up and walked around a little bit right at the end, although he didnt do anything strenuous or energetic ofc. im sure he'll be fine, it was probably just the additional pressures of it being their first european concert, and him possibly feeling like he let down the other members or the fans.

Lol everyone is really surprised, I wasn't honestly. Sometimes idols stick to a persona that they feel is popular or the company gives them. I'm the anon that said I never believed Jungwoo's "soft" cutesy thing. It always felt super forced, and believe me, I've seen a LOT of idols that fake it but make it work for them. I believe the Jungwoo on that video a LOT more than the other one.

I really don't like the dance much but I'll be honest, I'm kind of liking the song lately. I still have problems with it, but I like the instrumental and it's super catchy once you get past the douchy lyrics.

I think the theory is that in teasers they were "boring office workers" dreaming of a rich life right? I wished they tied the MV more to the teasers. I was so hyped by them and the MV was NOT what I expected in visuals. They didn't even reference them going to sleep and such, or waking up.

I still need to check the album out. Did any of you listen to it?

No. 12302

File: 1539385171903.jpg (172.27 KB, 980x1470, 980x.jpg)

I like that theory. I'm still holding out for a bonus video of more footage of the regular/irregular office scenes. I don't care really much for either Regular MV but I like both versions of the song. The "Regular challenge" they're trying to push is giving me secondhand embarrassment.

I really like Come Back, Knock On, and Run Back 2 U so far. My favorite part of 127 is undoubtedly the vocal line. I'll never understand why they push Taeyong and Mark all the time while SM's idol rappers are subpar (I say this as a SM artist fan) continues to confuse me.

I miss them. Can't wait for China to debut. But as a past EXO-M fan I worry for their futures with SM. I can see them trying to compete with other Chinese boy groups active now though.

No. 12303

I listened to it, it's pretty cute. Really liked City 127, Replay, and the "I always love you~" part of Run Back 2 U (rest of the song was meh though (unless the cringey intro was johnny, then I liked that part too)) and I'm excited for the smtown superstar chart for Come Back but Xuxi would've done Mark's part better, just saying

That photo looks super real and the rookies have the clothing from the recent teasers, so my guess is that they'll start to release mini teasers for the rest of the members like "Surprise they were on the photoshoot too!".

The final line up will be the ones from the photo. Chenle and Renjun will probably remain in Dream and maybe some of the China members will join Dream too.

Same! Taemin and Dean are the only Korean artists I have ever shared with normie friends, and they all loved them. Drip Drop is a great song too! Unfortunately my other favorite song will never be released. He used it for solo dance in this dance battle with Jimin but apparently it can't be officially released due to copyright issues..but it sounds so good :(
Key doesn't have solos yet but he's debuting soon! And I agree, he's really funny. If you ever get the chance to catch one of his Instagram lives, watch it. He's fluent in English so he usually replies to the comments with so much sass. He's the type of person I wanna gossip with about other idols because it seems like he has all the dirty deets.
I think yoongi had to leave because of personal legal issues because he said if he doesn't go now he won't even be able to get a return ticket. Also, try to finish the first seasons first! They make a lot of references to them in this season.
Personally enjoyed but I can't tell if it's better or worse than the last 2 seasons yet, but it does seem like they have a lot more to do in Malta than the Hawaii season. I'm enjoying the Behind The Scenes bits a lot more than the episodes tbh, they're just chill and edited like a compilation of random funny moments.

I also loved this song from Taemin, it was really simple and beautiful with the dance. I really like how much he improved from Shinee debut days. He has such a good aura as a performer.

Anyone annoyed that the first thing people say when looking at most kpop MVs is "are they gay?". I've showed Move to a lot of people and it's always the first thing "this dude is super gay". I'm not saying if Taemin is or not (I don't care) but it's so annoying.

Am I the only one that got into kpop and tried to show it to some friends just to see how close minded a lot of them are? I get not liking it but they don't even give it a chance. I like posting here because its the only place I talk about it, since I figured best not to show it to anyone, but sometimes there's SUCH good songs like >>12346 Aurora and people don't give it a chance.

Let me clarify I NEVER shame anyone for not liking it, I don't give a shit, I'm not a die hard fan and most kpop songs are decent not the best thing ever. What I hate is that they don't even listen to it for a minute, or act like it's the weirdest thing ever.

What did you guys think of the English version of Cherry Bomb? I though it was pretty well done and not too cringy, especially Mark's rap. Taeyong's parts where kind of weird though.. I wished they worked more on them. I really like how his voice sounds in English.

Generally I hate English versions, and they are not as good as Korean ones, but I hope SM keeps releasing covers for NCT and improve on them. Especially for newer songs.

Also the album was super good, I just wish they had more hard hitting songs.

Did you all hear the bonus track with all the members rapping? Lol it was so weird to listen to. Also, I kind of suspect SM increased the speed of the vocal line so they sounded better. It sounds weird and too fast paced. But maybe I'm wrong. Go off rapper Taeil kek

Why does NCT keep making english versions of songs that already sound fine as they are?

No. 12382


Just because they can, I guess. Most of SM's English tracks have the cheesiest lyrics so I just listen to the Korean versions anyway but I prefer a group who tries to break the West with songs they've bothered to translate into English than a group who stubbornly thinks the entirety of the West should learn Korean to be able to converse with them.

No. 12383

Many English songs have become popular outside of Anglo countries even though the great majority of listeners have absolutely no idea on what they say

No. 12384

Yes even if I prefer the Korean version I appreciate that they are trying to cater more to English speakers. Like Regular track was not my favorite from them, but you can tell by hearing both versions that the original is clearly the English one, and they really tried to fit in with the language and style. So they did prioritize it instead of translating an already existing song from them.

A lot of anons though it was super cringy, but the song really grew on me now. I found it a lot more on track with what you see in America that what other groups did.

In any case, I still prefer the Korean songs and style BUT I did find it nice to be able to sing along to their newer one. Hopefuly they don't focus TOO much on America because the songs are not that important, regular people don't get into kpop because of prejudice or "these boys look gay lol".

They are overhyped if you count all the people that talk about them on twitter but when you look past all the stan loona spam they don't have that many hardcore fans.

don’t forget china trio. i’m so fucking salty they haven’t debuted yet, they could’ve been adorable at the halloween party too if sm had just gotten its head out of its ass but it’s november and china is supposed to debut this month and still nothing.

i can’t help but feel as if kun is being conspired against sometimes. he’s gotten the short end of every single stick nct has ever had since he debuted and now when he’s supposed to shine it takes forever. meanwhile ten’s had baby don’t stop and a whole solo song+mv+dance and xuxi’s been on multiple reality shows. winwin’s had stuff with u and 127 for ages but has still managed to have less time to shine than those two; it’s like sm shoves him into almost every comeback but also go out of their way to keep his screentime in the negatives. renjun and lele are being kept out of nct china altogether yet they’re probably treated better by sm than the entire rest of the china-line combined.

>i can’t help but feel as if kun is being conspired against sometimes.

Ikr? The fact that he's been with NCT since the rookie days (so, 2015) makes it even worse. If I was him, I'd leave.

>renjun and lele are being kept out of nct china altogether

Is this confirmed or were they just kept out of that one leak? I don't think they'll be kept out entirely. If anything 10 will.

There's a rumor (https://twitter.com/cloudvelys/status/1055077367876485123?s=0) they're going to call it NCT Vision instead of NCT China or 116 which is lame imo, but whatever. If they don't debut this month I'm going to be pretty pissed, SM has kept us waiting too long. Would it kill them to at least give the unlucky 3 + the rookies a fucking vlive? I'm so tired of 127

>Is this confirmed or were they just kept out of that one leak? I don't think they'll be kept out entirely.
oops i should’ve clarified- they will undoubtedly be added as they graduate from dream (it’s not like they have anywhere else to go) and taking everything including that shoot into consideration putting them china from the get-go while they’re still in dream does seem a bit much… flitting between two countries for promotions and all would be pretty messy and most of all vexing for them, especially considering renjun only has 1 year left in dream and chenle has 2. i was originally really annoyed by the idea them not being in china from the start but i kind of understand the decision now.

>If anything 10 will.

i’m genuinely hoping if he’s in china it will only be for the debut and he’ll drop out of and prepare for nct thailand or promote with nct u when renjun and chenle join. i love ten but he’s had so much focus and work already and the chinese members literally haven’t had shit so i want this group to be THEIR chance to shine. there are already so many of them in one group that getting proper lines and screen time for each will be tight, literally just let them have this one thing for fuck’s sake.

>Would it kill them to at least give the unlucky 3 + the rookies a fucking vlive?

literally the rookies being properly introduced as nct members and seeing them fuck around with the rest of the bunch is all i fucking ask. i think nct china is long overdue but i’m willing to wait as long as they get a decent debut. what i’m not willing to wait for any longer is the china trio becoming official nct members because not introducing them until the very last second before the unit debuts is just plain retarded and so unfair to them. give nctzens a chance to get to know them first so the three of them can get properly hyped up by fans like the other members.

>and I miss hendery…

First time I heard it I was cringing a bit at the chorus but I'm really liking it after a couple of listens. I'm not a big fan of the robot voice, it may look weird in lives, but it's still cool I guess.

I looved the light stage at the end, that was so cool. With Kai in the middle.

Also I'm an NCT fan and I'm a bit triggered at the amount of complains on China lol just CHILL they will come eventually. Why can't we enjoy the NCT 127 and Dream stuff without going crazy for the "new next thing/member". I want to enjoy NCT before it gets so crowded dammit… I like the rookies too but it's not like they were introduced 5 years ago, it was just a couple of months ago. Let them take their time to practice and shit, you think SM doesn't want to make more money as soon as possible? They will release them when they are ready.

No. 12426

it’s just that china has been delayed for ages and now that they’re supposed to debut this month the rookies haven’t even been properly introduced as nct members. of course fans are going to grow annoyed if they’re promised something and it keeps being delayed for seemingly no reason.

i personally don’t have a huge problem with nct china being delayed but there’s absolutely no excuse to keep the rookies out of the loop at this point. they’ve already been practicing for years and they’ve already become acquainted with the other members (at least the vision lineup) so the only thing that’s left is to be formally inducted into the group. then they can appear in v-lives and fuck around with the others and all will be good, and nct china can follow at whatever pace sm sees fit.

he didn’t get any center time in boss even when there wasn’t even a need for individual lines to ‘justify’ it (jaehyun and lucas both get center time during the chorus towards the end of the song) it’s like the choreographers actively work against him

he looks so happy ugh so fucking cute

xj was supposedly scamming homeless people, so not as harmless as ty… though unlike with ty this seems to just be a random retard in the west running around saying it though based on a mistranslation so it seems fake. assuming it’s untrue i hope this won’t drag him down in the future.

i find him super adorable and i’m really excited for his debut. in xiaojun’s case he has a lot of content since he was on that talent show and hendery… i’m one of the anons who are obsessed with dery and to summarize: he’s insanely pretty in a really distinctive way that’s hard to define and he gives off a kind of mysterious vibe while seeming to have a really quirky personality. there’s just a lot of clashing things about him, idk how to explain. unlike the other two i don’t find hendery handsome at all, just really really pretty.

No. 12472

smh his hair was finally starting to look cute again and then they hit him with a marginally more palatable version of joshu's haircut. I swear, his styling since like october has been the worst he's ever had, even worse than the weird aryan aesthetic they tried to push on him for a while. his face looks cute right now, but his outfits, hair, and makeup have been so offensive that I can't appreciate it.

Chill, WW won't even be on the promo since they are busy with NCT China. You'll get your precious China boys soon you bunch of complainers.

I'm in love with the styling of the video sooo much. I still need to listen to the song a couple of times to decide what I think but the looks, the dance, the concept are spot on to me. So I'm super happy with this comeback over the Regular one.

doyoung's my ult so of course i'll notice when he's only got like two lines but i deadass forgot jungwoo even joined 127 until he finally had his one and a half line towards the end of the song. taeil had it only marginally better and johnny and winwin never have lines ever in the first place but at least johnny got some seconds of peeping center time and we got to see a shot of win's face at least twice.

Lol they are just grasping at straws because of all the controversy that BTS had this past weeks.

I'm just waiting for people to try to say that Taeyoung is racist now for having a headwrap lol, you know it's coming…

You know I really don't want to sound super salty and I understand some fans wanting to see more of their favorites. But I feel you guys are sooo nitpicky. Yes, Taeyong and Mark get a lot of screentime but in this MV a lot of the other members did too. Haechan, Yuta, even Johnny had screentime. Also Doyoung and Jungwoo had lines, and they were really nice and stand out a lot. The bridge was really beautiful and actually my favorite part of the song.

Also as another anon mentioned Winwin is not going to be on the promo, why do you want him to have lines since another member will have to do them for him? lol

Do you guys listen to the albums? The last one had a lot of ballad type songs and vocal line shined on those. NCT 127 is known for hard hitting comebacks and main track will always have a lot of Tae and Mark presence since they are the best rappers in the group.

WW will have his comeback soon and hopefully more time to shine. They picked the guy up from China and I doubt he had much training as the others, I wouldn't find it odd if he was training for NCT China all along. Only member I feel sorry for getting less lines is Yuta and I've been noticing him more and more lately on songs, so I'm hoping they give him even more to do in the future.

I really liked the song and everyone was looking soooo good. Classic NCT 127 mess song and I love it.

His looks are exactly my type, some what baby faced and cute, but not a manlet (he's also still way taller than me). Although I can't really comment on his personality too much since he's an idol, he seems to actually be considerate of others, and has a true passion for music (but perhaps not the idol life so much).

This comeback was sooo good. I really liked the choreo. I have to say as an NCT fan that I think Seventeen (as a group) dances a lot better, they are just SO good and in synch. I'm always shocked at their dance practices.

The video gives me NCT vibes as well and I think some of the fandom was complaining about that, so dumb considering they didn't invent the "bad boy" concept lol. I'm all up for it since I like that concept more than anything else, especially sugary songs.

Am I the only one kind of underwhelmed by the latest choreo in Simon Says and Regular? Like they are splitting the members into groups lately and I liked the cohesive dance where ALL members are dancing at the same time, like Cherry bomb.

Since members go in an out in latest ones it gets confusing and gives me a headache, it also looks really off in live shows since the camera doesn't know where to focus.

Red hair TY is back so hopefully next comeback will have better choreo. I just want another cool moment like that step where they all move slightly with their feet to the left in Cherry bomb, you know which one I mean lol

Even if you're right, that still means they're debuting with 2 songs and a cover after all this time. Sucks.

If the 2 songs are as good as the 2 nct U debuted with, maybe I'll be satisfied but judging by everything else nct has released post empathy I'm doubtful they will.

ten is considered one of the best dancers in nct if not /the/ best, winwin has absolutely insane credentials that no other member comes close to (that are never talked about because muh korean members are more important) and yangyang has an impressive track record as a street dancer back in germany not to mention sm is known for having exceptionally high standards when it comes to chinese idols and putting extra pressure on them because they’re xenophobic as fuck so all members will be well-rounded at absolute minimum.

>xiaojun riding that mechanical bull

my cons:
>2/3 songs were 127 covers after all
>the regular mv was meh, just made me feel like I was in a sephora or something and the styling was not great either. I prefer the trashy english mv
>ten and kun got the most screen time despite being the least attractive members
>winwin had less lines than he did in the other versions (rip)
>hendery got even less than winwin (also rip)
>I was hoping lucas would be the TY or at least the Mark of wayv but most of his lines were adlibs and the dispersal was even for everyone besides winwin and hendery

I have mixed emotions but overall I'm alright with this and I'm just happy they finally debuted. would've been nice if they had at least dropped an mv for dream launch instead of regular though…

No. 12609

WW still has no lines lol it's really become a meme at this point. is he tone deaf as fuck? What's going on? It's not that hard to "talk" sing some parts of the song, a lot of idols are worthless and they still get lines.

I'm really underwhelmed by it to be honest, cool visuals but the song sounds pretty much like the previous versions and I've already heard it so many times. English version is best to me, since it was obviously originally intented to be in English.

Also, I may get hate for this because I'm aware that idols are "manufactured" whatever and you all have such a major boner for china line, but it just feels like a rip off of Mark and TY's rap? They didn't really bring anything different, they just copied the style. I was really expecting something cool from Lucas and YangYang… Also the last person I was expecting to rap TY's part was Kun? Really odd choice.

Are they releasing another MV? Or do we have to wait for a comeback now to see something new? I feel bad for the group that they had to debut with a song from NCT, they should have their own track. I'm worried they will only get NCT songs and that's it.

>I was hoping lucas would be the TY or at least the Mark of wayv but most of his lines were adlibs and the dispersal was even for everyone besides winwin and hendery

I worry Lucas is more a visual than anything to be honest? I really like his voice so I hope they give him longer raps intead of deep voiced adlibs and things like that. Hope he doesn't get th same fate as Felix from Stray Kids lol

I also hope Ten is not a rapper in this unit, I prefer him a million times more as a singer. His part in Seventh sense is the weakest to me. He just whispers the whole time and it doesn't fit his image at all.

>it just feels like a rip off of Mark and TY's rap? They didn't really bring anything different, they just copied the style. I was really expecting something cool from Lucas and YangYang…
I agree, it was literally just a chinese cover with miniscule tweaks and marginally better line distribution. Same goes for Come Back. They gave us virtually nothing.

>the last person I was expecting to rap TY's part was Kun? Really odd choice.

I thought so too, that's weird as fuck. Never thought he would end up getting the most actual lines.
Anyways, Lucas's singing voice is cute too. Maybe his rapping will improve now that he's doing it in a language he seems to be more comfortable with.

i hated both original versions of regular and i know they’re supposed to be trashy but that doesn’t mean i have to like it. this version is at least somewhat classy, aesthetically pleasing and the visuals are nice.

but more importantly —

winwin had little screentime and basically no lines.

hendery had one line and barely any screentime.

and frankly, i don’t understand why sm had to shove ten down our throats this hard by giving him repeated singing and rap lines while also seemingly having him as the center. even without mark and taeyong, sm still manages to be complete and utter shit with their shameless favoritism and worthless line distribution. ten’s had baby don’t stop and his own fucking solo already.

sicheng and hendery deserved so much better than this, i’m so pissed.

I actually like the latest song but they are giving them really flowery looks and I'm not sure what to feel about it. They were always cute but this is super feminine now.

No. 12633

The 'Taekook is being separated by Bighit' thing is such a meme.

Despite those things, he had way more lines and screentime than Winwin at this point in his career even though he wasn't as popular.

Most people understood why Sehun never got too many lines after hearing him get them. If they'd at least let Sicheng bomb a song once, I'd shut up and accept his fate. I do hope he gets a "Tempo" moment one day though.

not a genre i would typically listen to, but i love this. imo they seem to be doing really well without e'dawn, don't really care about him but i forgot he used to be a part of the group lol.

might sound biased since i love wooseok but i agree, he's got a charming personality and good stage presence too.

Anyone here going to watch Produce? I've never seen one and I'm intrigued. I watched a couple of the introduction videos from the members, and I found most of them really annoying and uncomfortable to watch.

No. 22208

I hope they can do well with this song. I was really surprised to find out that they havent had any wins on a music show yet, not even with shine??

No. 22301

i think im going to watch it, but for some reason produce gives me weird vibes, i think its because of the thing first season when a producer called it healthy porn

No. 22781

I'm still kind of obsessed with this song. Shitty English aside I really appreciate how different it is from anything else in kpop. Especially recently I wish there was more variety in kpop releases instead of piggybacking off trends a year after they were popular in the US. I'm not a jpop fan but I do feel like it is better than kpop in that aspect

The only season of Produce I've watched was the very first one but I'm considering watching this just for the cringe tbh

No. 22807

How do you guys feel about IZ*ONE? I really like La Vie en Rose so I tried listening to the rest of their debut album but it was disappointing. La Vie en Rose had a more mature sound with strong vocals, but all their other songs sound overly childish. They have a lot of potential so I hope their next album is better than their first.

No. 22814

I liked la vie en rose but after hearing it dozens of times at the end of the year award shows I got tired of it. Violeta sounds good so far. I like the style they chose for izone a lot and I'm glad they didn't got for a super obvious ioi copy.

No. 23151

I liked O'My (despite the high pitched voices, it's got a good instrumental) and the songs from P48 (you're in love aren't you and as we dream), but I wish they'd have more songs like LVeR that straddle the line between being mature and cool without straying into age innapropirate territory for them.

I do think that their second mini sounds better than COLOR*Z from the audio snippets.

Lmao not in love stupid, but they were friends, I'm sure that much is true. They might've acted a bit more clingy for the camera…..or maybe not because from what winwin has said about yuta it seems like he acts like that all the time. Of course sm did try to profit of it for the sake of a 'ship' or whatever, but I think they liked each other for real (idk about now they haven't interacted for a long time)

One reason I'm saying this is because in this episode of nct life was the first time he actually met winwin and they seemed to like other right away (I guess yuta wanted to help out a fellow foreigner and winwin appreciated that)

I'm glad sm is doing something different for them this time but I don't get why they tried to go the exo-m/exo-k route. also the amount of promo sm is doing for nct 127 in the US is crazy.
it's sad that most of the uploads for their early music videos are so low quality.

No. 29769

hopefully it will peter out after the tour ends. I don't necessarily hate any of the 127 members themselves but that sub unit can fuck right off, everything about it is and has always been shit. now that it's the only one being actively shilled it makes the rest of nct look bad too. feelsbadman.

Total noob to Kpop here. I like some of the music and mostly unconcern myself with the stanning and drama, so my foray into the fandom has been limited.

I found myself really liking Loona Odd Eye Circle Max&match album, but it is fetching insanely high prices on eBay! Is this common in Kpop? Do many albums get a limited run, are they not restocked regularly like Western artists' albums? It kind of sucks that I can't buy this physical album (unless I wanna pay +$100, that is)…

No. 30441

I don't think it's that common unless it's a really old album. they might be waiting for loona to gain more fans so the demand will be there.

No. 30455

Very uncommon. I've heard Loona had some weird stock problem with one of their albums (idk if it was Odd Eye Circle though). I'd check on other sites like YesAsia and Kpopmart. Alternatively if you live near a Korean community sometimes bookstores carry uncommon kpop albums

No. 30888

No. 30889

Loved the video and looved the choreo. The song is a bit cheesy to be honest, not really my thing, very juvenile the whole "Take off" thing. The best thing about WayV to be honest is the high production of their MVs, they look really cool.

Winwin is really the most useless member ever lol at least other filler members get like one or two lines. Did he even "sing" anything at all?

No. 30895

I like the song a lot. Better than anything nct has released in a long time. Reminds me of exo in their glory days especially that guitar breakdown at 2:40. I hope they're profiting from chinese sales because these mv's look insanely expensive

No. 30900

I didn't mind the latest NCT comebacks, besides Wakey. That song was DREADFUL.

Also I want the anon that went to the NCT concert to give us more info on it. People in the Critical thread were so unnecessarily mean to her, calling her a bad mother and stuff. I hardly see people supporting NCT there but they still screech about fans defending their oppas itt when nobody is saying shit.

I can't even browse it lately because it's just full of crazy anons sperging about female idols. The jealousy is strong.

No. 30924

It's pretty cool. Agree with >>30895, it's the best NCT has had in a while. I like the song more than the video but the mixing could've been a lot better. Fits in nicely with other mandopop boy group music though.

The past few months have been very unfortunate for NCT. Everything they've put out since October has sounded like leftovers from other SM groups. I hope 127 goes back to having an identity of its own and WayV establishes one for itself in the next year. Until then Dream and U remain the superior sub units by a long shot.

Pardon my white knighting but this is the most lines he's gotten in a song afaik and he's more than twice as popular as any of the other members outside of Xuxi. He's hardly useless in WayV.

No. 30928

why did they ignore him so much? is it because he's not from a rich family or something? they tried to pull the same shit with wayv but ig they were forced to give him lines this time

No. 30929

Even though I like NCT and Taeyong, it's kind of funny how hard SM pushes TY yet Winwin, with all 0.8 of his lines in the NCT 127 and NCT U songs, managed to become one of the most popular members anyway.

This WayV song should have been their debut imo, rather than a cover of regular. That might have been SM's way to try and tie the group more to NCT though.

No. 30932

I get what you mean, but I think Winwin has a lot of fans just because kpop fans like to white knight "underdog idols". He's like the Jin of BTS. I have no problem with him, I really don't dislike any member of NCT but you can't really say he has more fans than Taeyong because he's more talented or likable, you know kpop fans like to baby him.

I would say Taeyong has a lot of fans too just because SM constantly pushes him down everyone's throat. I'm not giving him that much credit either.

No. 30936

Winwin is the most popular NCT member in all of china and has been for a while… He's pretty with features that are extremely popular in china, a great dancer who majors in traditional chinese dance, and has a charming personality which could easily be considered more likable than TY's. And I-fans are the only ones who go after "underdog" idols. It has virtually nothing to do with his popularity in China. The Jin comparison doesn't make sense here.

No. 30948

I liked most of their comebacks other than wakey too. ngl I wish they'd retire the experimental sound for awhile. or at least just use it for NCT U instead.

No. 30958

when I first got into NCT I had the impression that U would be more experimental whereas 127 would have more public-friendly releases. I think Summer 127 could have been a leading single honestly.
Hopefully SM figures it out cause I still think they have a lot of potential as a group.

No. 31334

Taeyong is so daaamn sexy, sorry not sorry.

Yea I liked Taeyong's shots best along with Yuta's. I actually would've liked Yuta to have more lines though, his little two words(lol) sounded nice and his voice would've fit the song really well. But overall it's a good track (well their b-sides are usually good)

No. 31384

I think they're still the most popular.
the title track is really good imo. I haven't listened to the b-sides though

No. 31475

Was expecting to cringe hard but they did pretty good! I think some parts at least where also live? Pretty great besides some choreo issues, Taeil fucked up closer to the end and froze up.

I agree with people in comments saying this sounds more like a SHINee song. I like it but sounds so out of place for 127. They've been really bizarre lately, I hope we get a NCT U comeback soon. Guess it's being put off because three members of the division are in WayV.

No. 31481

>three members of the division are in WayV
NCT U doesn't have a set line up, they just use whatever members they feel like using. Everything SM is doing right now points to them keeping WayV separate from NCT indefinitely so it doesn't look like any of them will be in it.

No. 31492

Not a fan of BTS, but I really like this song. Maybe it's because I hear it at work 3 times a day, but it's catchy and not bad at all.

it does sound like a shinee song but I kinda like it. I'm not a fan of that noise around 1:59 but I'll wait for the mv before I decide.
I didn't like it at first but I think it's good. halsey's parts aren't that bad

No. 31535

I know it's rotational but members like Haechan for example are not in NCT U. And now you're three members down, so if you start adding people from 127 that were not there before, it will just be basically the same unit but with a different sound. I think they've grown more accustomed to bigger groups so I don't know if they'll go with the ones that remain or not. I really liked the original NCT U lineup and it was smaller (but I guess Ten would not be there though).

Maybe they'll include some members from Dream? What's up with them? I'm aware Mark graduated and stuff but are they having a comeback or what?

No. 31540

Jeno will certainly be in it but Jaemin might focus on acting after he graduates Dream and Renjun will go to WayV.

I find him really handsome, at least I prefer him over Kai to be honest. Kai does too many exaggerated faces when dancing, it puts me off. Same for idols sticking their tongues out and stuff like that. That's why I prefer Taeyong's dancing (not so much when he freestyles lol yikes), he's a lot more subtle and sexy, especially his gaze. I think I shared my preference on YouTube once and almost got crucified by an exo-l lol

We should share our own here. I think my top ones are all from Taeyong, but to give a bit more variety to the thread (a lot of nct fans here) I'll share this one of Rocky from Astro since he needs a LOT more recognition. Cheekbones for days.

Can we not derail about this? I'm confused as to why such a blatantly gimmicky group is being discussed here instead of the anti thread in the first place.

i love how the girl in the black tshirt with the white long sleeves under dances, she's really good. the rest are … all over the place.
and i dunno where you guys live, but all the blonde chicks are barely average looking. (since someone brought up sisel, i don't think she's attractive either lol)
i know it's subjective but, i am surprised how low the bar seems to be for this thing. are they at least fluent in korean?

Why the american ones are always so doughy
The rest is pretty cute

No. 33106

the American one (Maria?) was on a singing completion show and seems to speak better korean than the others ("I can see your voice" I think). There's a clip of her ordering food for the other girls on the phone from the first episode on yt so idk seems more proficient than them maybe

No. 33110

oh i think i've seen her…she was really hellbent on being a singer in korea..idk why tho, girl has a nice voice, too bad she's a kboo. i don't get the obsession of "debuting" in korea but, at least their skills aren't completely tragic (like most kboos who try to go to korea are)

I found out mnet actually contacted several youtube cover dancers from all over. Apparently they were in contact with Brazilian and Mexican ones, but for some reason they didn't make the cut.

Seems to be required you have some level of Korean competency, and are willing to work on improving.

Some like Lexie Marie turned it down to focus on exams.

Yeah shes been in SK for a year already, shes basically showing everyone around. She's literally obsessed with South Korea.

CLC released their new song today. To me, the group's usually a hit or miss and this song was definitely a miss. The song could have easily been 3 different songs, as the verse, bridge, and chorus didn't fit into each other at all. Like everyone else, they're jumping on this insufferable trend of having a beat drop chorus instead of proper lyrics.

On the upside, the visuals were very good and I liked the ~vaguely European art~ theme! The color palette of the music video was very cute. I want to make wallpapers out of the whole video. It's just a shame that the song is so garbage.

I found it quite boring, what a disappoinment. Why does YG insist on every artist having exactly the same sound?

unnecessary but obligatory rap verse and still doing tropical house in the year of our lord 2019. Ugh. Imagine finally being let out of the dungeon, and this is the mediocrity they want you to sing. The video is nice at least. I like her different hair looks.

How there's still people out there who claim that bts are the best is beyond me, I really don't understand why they're so popular. Exo's vocals are amazing, one would think they'd appeal much more to the american or international market than them.

No. 33966

I always had the impression that, unlike BTS, EXO never really tried with english-speaking markets. They always focused most of their resources on the Korean, Japanese and Chinese markets instead.

Also I just don't think the US market is really open to any "manufactured" boybands, the only market they can appeal to is ex-one direction fans. EXO would probably be able to widen their fanbase in america, but they wouldn't break into the american mainstream. Same goes to BTS, I think their US popularity is just loud ARMY support, no amount of public appearances and collabs with US celebrities will make them a beloved group to the american public.

No. 33968

sm groups in general tend to have better vocalists than other companies' groups because they actually take vocal training seriously. while i'm not a huge fan of exo, all of them except sehun and kai are decent singers. especially d.o and chen are pretty good.
i don't think people who see bts as the best mean their vocals are the best since it's obvious that vocals aren't their strongest point. the reason why they are so popular is because of their marketing and their social media presence. they are always keeping up with american pop trends and catering to their international audience while exo sticked more to their asian audience.

No. 33988

well one of the selling points for bts was that they have a stronger rap line so that probably made up for their vocals. like others said it's mainly because SM didn't really try that hard to promote them internationally.

No. 33993

Even Kai can sing - only Sehun is left standing around awkwardly.

I kind of had the impression that in comparison to their earlier days they use rap less and less the more famous they get.

Holy shit do I wish Fei were as popular as Suzy in Miss A. Korean xenophobia (pls no race-baiting ban) did her wrong. I'm just getting into them now and I think Fei is so much better looking (I still think Suzy is pretty.)

I usually avoid boy groups because they're songs are terrible in regards to my tastes. I don't hate this though not entirely my fav genre but I can get behind listening to it, though I do not like the rap parts at all. Thanks for posting.

I am with you I hate the hip thrusts so much in any boy groups choreo. It always looks terrible. That's not even a good dance move dance wise.

Thoughts on Somi? Are you guys ready for her debut?

Her title track is going to be produced by BP's title track producers. I hope it at least suits her voice

I think she would've really suited ITZY and shouldn't have left JYP in the first place, even being under a YG subsidiary isn't going to be good for comebacks, her debuts been delayed two times now? I think she shouldn't have changed agencies

No. 34780

it's a teddy song so my expectations are low. judging by the teaser from yesterday it might be on the cuter side though so maybe it won't be a total gashina/solo clone.
yeah even though I don't love dalla dalla she probably would have been better off at JYP or at least a small agency that would cater to her. YG has been letting everyone out of the dungeon since the scandal but who knows how long that will last.

No. 34782

At first I thought her leaving Jyp was a mistake made on her own accord, but now I tinfoil it was actually Jyp that cut ties for some reason (kicked her out?) Either way I really wish she'd have debuted with Itzy.

No. 34798

yeah I think Yuna is kind of "young" for the group. she was defs somis replacement, and it shows, somi fit the mold for them a lot better.

my own tinfoil- I'm wondering if something happened between somis dad and jyp, since matthew's a huge stage parent and probably wanted the upper hand over her contract, I fail to see why her being at yg would change that tho

Where do people post about kpop nowadays. Is everyone just on twitter/discord now? The only forums I've seen are onehallyu(rip) and allkpop forums that's filled with mess like this. somewhat related but I wish there were more places that discussed kpop gossip even if it's just dumb stuff like dating rumors. the only place it's really discussed is on those fake prediction accounts on twitter.

No. 34808

Have you ever been on NetizenBuzz? It's a fairly popular blogspot that posts articles translating K-Netizen comments into English. The articles are'nt always K-pop related but are for the most part. The real gold relies in the responses from site users.
There are other similar spots with the theme of translating knet comments, you could probably find those easily with light searching, but I and many others prefer NB.

No. 34809

yeah I go on translation blogs but I guess it feels too different? Most of the time rumors only get posted there once the agency makes a statement on it. I guess I'm looking for more of the low level stuff that comes from egg accounts on twitter. But I know it would never happen because it's pretty immoral

No. 35024
