Why does Hyuna look so awful now compared to the past? I can’t figure out what happened in the past few years (minus the ridiculous lip fillers). I thought it was the weight loss, but she was relatively thin in Bubble Pop and didn’t look so awful. Is it just bad styling, or just years of plastic surgery making her look so haggard?

The left pic, when was it taken? Her styling/makeup looked really good. I used to think she was awful and trashy during Trouble Maker (circa 2011), but at least not vampire-scary tier.

Right, especially with childhood pics like these. She looks turkish to me. I know a half Korean-Egyptian woman, and her features are similar to jihyo's.

Samefag. Her family look 100% korean though. If anything, it's her father that might be mixed (based on his features) but it could be wrong too. She looks different from the rest of her family.
f(x) were overshadowed by not just SNSD and 2ne1 but also KARA, T-ara, Sistar and Miss A.
Red Velvet is only slightly behind BP and Izone in album sales and is neck-and-neck with Twice in digitals. Either way the Korean GP considers them a top group, which they never did to f(x). >>44404
Britney was a great dancer with excellent stage presence, 99% of Kpop tarts could never come close to having her it-factor

>During the performance, the group members noticed that some reddish and pinkish liquid substance dripping from his head down to his face.
>Could it have been blood?

>MONBEBE will be relieved to know that it most definitely wasn’t blood, but instead, his hair dye.
>Some fans and netizens have stated after discovering that it was hair dye and not blood that he still looked cool and had a vampire-like aura.
Lmao what kind of cheap hair dye did they use that it actually wear off like that. Embarrassing.
It's probably those wax dyes that you rub on your hair. Idols I'm sure bleach their hair and then dye it with wax multiple colors for certain performances. If not they would just go bald going from pink, to green, blue, etc.
So it's understandable it would drip since they are sweating so much. Probably a bad choice but the best way to avoid ruining their hair completely, not that they already do lol
F(x) only ever had one real concert tour in 2016 when they were well past their prime. Red Velvet to date has had two successful tours (including a North American leg where they were in venues of 3-6 thousand capacity, pretty damn good for any kpop group that's not BTS).
F(x) is from the era where girl groups didn't even have full length concerts unless they were huge like SNSD and Kara.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about my son Eric, you little bitch? I’ll have you know he graduated top of his class in the Cre.ker auditions, and he's been involved in numerous secret raids against Big Hit and TXT, and has over 300 confirmed whips and nae-naes.
He is trained in bad rapping and is the 2nd top rapper in the entirety of the yeah yeah The Boyz you got it right jigeum my time. You are nothing to him but just another target. He will diss you the fuck out with rap skills the likes of which has never been seen before on lolcow, mark my fucking words.
You think you can get away with saying that shit about my son over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of Cre.ker employees across the deep web and your Anonymous posting history is being traced right now, so you better prepare for the storm, ARMY. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your shitposts. You’re fucking cancelled, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can make call-out posts about you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands.
Not only am I extensively trained in oppa ass licking, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the LOEN Headquarters IU comeback fund, and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable posts off the face of lolcow, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “Ew.” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue.
But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit The Boyz all over you and you will drown in it.
You’re fucking D.D.D.ead, kiddo.

This post >>44407
Or this post >>44419
Or simply anyone who knows who is being talked about
i always thought she looked middle eastern/south asian/indian as well and i always think about the time some idols have said there are mixed/non koreans in the industry that arent "out", because they look at race and even nationality very differently than someone in the west would
asians are notoriously xenophobic and nationalistic
What's with the sudden influx of people with beginner level english?>>44431
That's not how lc works…

i remember people saying hayoung looked middle eastern when apink debuted. i wonder how many idols are actually mixed and lying about it.
4/8chan /mu/ users fleeing to other chans
unfortunately i feel a lot more of that is going to be happening soon
all those people initially came from onehallyu, twitter, soompi, soshified and various sea sites so its going to be rough
remember tiny g? one of the girls was thai or something and she got really popular but allegedly one of the other members was like…half euro or half latina and when the rumor started floating around, she left the group and claimed it was because she got too tall to be in the group lol
thats just one i remember off the top of my head but there have been rumors for several idols
also dongwoon from BEAST is another i remember there being articles where he was forced to deny he was half white

Ironically, the Thai member was the most popular member if you dont count Dohee who was more famous as an actress.

Definitely in the minority here but I don't think the lip fillers are that bad now that they've settled, plus she's dressed quite nice on the right and she's not wearing her terrible blue contacts. I don't mean to sound like an incel but I think the normie/conservative Korean girl style suits her a lot more than the bombshell thing she's been trying to pull off for the past decade.
I do actually. They could do better without trying to go to west for west validation. Too bad.>>44452
I think hyuna has always been a bit…overrated physically tbh.
Makeup and styling did wonders for her the first few years of 4minute. But without the makeup and styling she just isnt very pretty and never was.>>44455
Honestly just a heads up, trying to convince people of whatever it is you're trying to(and not doing a very good job at it), is only going to get you reported for OT posting. This is a kpop critical thread. And this isnt Allkpop. We have rules here.
so several threads ago people talk about what koreans do and generalize asians, I correct it and well, I'm not trying to convince people about anything and of course just to make sure that at least if you want to be critical let's not change the basic problem in kpop itself coming from Koreans. Other Asian country doesn't deserve to be drag out from it because well.. compare to my country, Koreans really visible on their sexism and misogynistic.
And good luck banning me. It's obvious people here also quite severe less-knowledgeable that their self believes into.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

I will never understand why Suzy got so popular.
Her face is bland, her body was less than mediocre during the time of her big breakthrough and it's not like she's super talented either - not as an idol, not as an actress (plus koreans often write the she seems to be a bit dumb, judging by the way she speaks or writes).
There are many talented idols who fit into korean beauty standards, so why her?
The pic I posted is from her first drama - and she looks pretty bad tbh. But instead of people "cancelling" her, she got famous because if it, that is pretty strange. Plus you could argue that Fei is more attractive than her.
Besides, there are so many pretty idols with popular songs, yet nobody ever reached nowhere her level.

maybe it has something to do with how they sexed her up. she was 17 at the time of this picture.

I heard a rumour that Hayoung had a Filipina grandmother>>44427
f(x) stans crying over Red Velvet "stealing songs" is hilarious because a) those original quirky songs were picked out for both groups by the same table of old grizzled executives b) Hot Summer, their biggest hit, is a remake of a German song. RV don't have a messy member like Sulli and are all native Koreans so there will be no "chinese traitor" controversies like Victoria, obviously SM would care a bit more about their success as a group since they're easier to manage. >>44429
2ne1, Miss A, SISTAR and Wonder Girls weren't typically cute and submissive and did just fine. SNSD dropped the submissive concept after Oh!. fx just had nothing interesting going for them apart from a tomboy member and screechy noise music ripped from 2000s Europop>>44430
KARA's Gyuri (pic) has always given me European vibes for whatever reason. Could be her carefree confident personality on variety shows, but her face is also very striking and not at all like a typical Korean's.
Britney is my queen but I think footwear and musical composition these days is why choreography is so limited. Plus Korean taste is really basic and they'd rather have a cute dance than something intense like BOMT. I know Sonamoo debuted with 'harder' choreography and even they succumbed to the cute concept because female idols doing anything besides basic sexy or cute dances doesn't sell.>>44463
Koreans only like what's popular in the first place. Miss A's debut was a hit, and Suzy's face was one of the supposedly better looking ones among the handful of popular girl groups at that time. Imo she's not much better looking than most idols.
MY OPINION but Arin from Oh My Girl is crazy pretty and even she is barely heard of compared to bland ass Irene, who has shit proportions and an old-looking face but still gets a ton of CFs because RV is popular. You can say the same for other prettier visuals from nugu groups as well.

Korean nationalism made sure Fei never got more popular than Suzy (also to be fair Fei's Korean wasn't the best at debut).
Koreans will exalt mediocre Koreans over talented foreigners. You see it all the time in groups with non Koreans.

We'll never know what really happened but when she left the Wonder Girls the fact that there was a conspiracy theory that she was pregnant tells you all you need to know.
There was all kind of shady shit with the Wonder Girls that people have forgotten now. JYP left them with R. Kelly at one point. Shady as hell.

her and jia always got the worse styling in miss a. i wonder what it is with companies giving the "ugly" members of the group bad styling. it would make more sense to dress them the best. red velvet had awful styling in zimzalabim, but none of the members got fucked over as much as wendy look at this mess.
File: 1565734824047.jpeg (35.83 KB, 640x480, images (6).jpeg)
I don't think they really ever stop accepting high end gifts tho. Every now and then i see fansites postings pics like this one above. They wouldnt be buying if they didn't manage to actually deliver it to the members.
Min was pushed a lot in the beginning, jyp wanted to make her the it girl, put her on tons of shows, but sh never made it. She really wasn't treated unfairly, she was just too "ugly" or not likeable enough.
Instead Suzy gained huge popularity basically on her own.

I think the reason koreans hype up some visuals has a lot to do with proportions and how they look in real life. Even if Suzy doesn't look flashy, she's got better proportions or whatever, and she looks natural (inb4 "but she isn't natural1111" yeah I know, i said "LOOKS" natural)

Samefag. This was quite unfortunate.
Jesus, she makes them look so bad… I thought Joy is very pale too?
I always wonder how Red Velvet looks so skinny on stage, yet so stumpy irl.
Does anybody else also feel like a Yeri receives special treatment? Her getting added to the group itself was weird already but sometimes she's also given outfits that make her stand out more. She has the worst body in the group yet wears something short (she always wears very short stuff) and red while the others wear long pants and all black
he always looks like taemin.
I found it so creepy that sm sought out a taemin look-alike and a minho look-alike for nct and made them do a ton of gay fanservice with eachother last year. that was weird as shit.
being tall helps people like Joy (though she's like 5'6", but when you're in a group with everyone else near 5 foot you will look gigantic)
being skinny helps when you're like 5'4" like Seulgi
The other 3 I think are like 5'0" - 5'2":
Irene is SM's favorite so they never show bad angles
Wendy yo-yo's like crazy but for now she's "almost" as small as Seulgi (for the time being)
Yeri is unfortunate because of her box body but her legs take up more room then her torso so she has that going for her
But what really helps them is that they give the tallest member the shortest/ no heels and the shorter members supper high heels, so they match up in high sometimes.
i actually thought yeri suited that styling more. considering the fact that she has a box body, that top gave her upper body a "shape".
now i dont see the "special treatment" thing going on for her because all the songs after bad boy has yeri looking ghastly. all styling given to her emphasized her unfortunate body shape and i guess her styling in bad boy is the best she's ever had.

They're going to have a seriously hard time after disbanding. I don't think that jyp pays them well and not a single one of them will have a chance solo, not as a singer, not as an actress, not even as a model.

taeyeon is a way better singer than anyone in twice and she has the biggest individual fandom in snsd. jihyo isn't popular enough in twice to get her own solo. nayeon would probably be the only one with a chance of a solo. i don't think it'll ever happen while twice is still an active group though.
seriously its like jyp is being completely shameless right now with having them show off their tits at fansigns, and asses on stage in super short dresses and big tops with short shorts that make them look like they're not wearing anything under

She has the "worst" body by knetz standards but I actually think she looks pretty, she's never been scary skelly and she's not fat. I think she suits more edgy styling a lot better personally, she has big eyes but with her body and general facial features I don't think the cute thing quite works.

Regular people are risking everything while protesting, meanwhile celebrities only care about their wealth.
China is not North Korea, famous people not supporting the chinese government wouldn't put themselves in any danger, they just like benefitting off of being part of the propaganda machine.
Right but Lay is worse about it than any other idol, he literally works for the government. He just dropped an advertising deal with Samsung because they haven't outwardly supported the one-china garbage.
It's disgusting that he's going out of his way to post the propaganda on Instagram where all his international fans are as well. At least keep that shit on Chinese bootleg twitter.
obviously they are being forced to post. china isn't democratic and i'm pretty sure his pro independent hong kong. it's either post your 'allegiance' to the mainland or disappear like the other citizens who act out.
all of you fuckers who aren't from hong kong or don't even keep up with what happens there should shut up. this isn't an oppapologist situation.
He isn't being forced to do shit, he just doesn't want to lose those Chinese $$$.
It's better having no income in Hong Kong than in China.
everyone who trained at sm around that period said that yeri was the best female trainee they had, even though it was common knowledge that she was super green and unready for debut. if she was the best they had, I’m assuming she was also all
they had (maybe everyone else was too young or maybe they had a Chinese ratio of male to females and legit had nobody around).
It seems like she’s generally treated by everyone, including her seniors, like they feel bad for her, know she’s super fragile, and like there’s a team effort to disguise her flaws born from guilt…
like, even with all the “perks,” she still gets shit on more than every other member in a profound way and is obviously out of her league
>>44619>Some rando kpop idol isn't going to be tortured for not shitting on HK.
Exactly, China is not a democracy, but it's not that dangerous either. Fan Bingbing got in trouble because she commited a legit crime, the only thing in danger is Lay and Co.'s gigantic income.
In other news, Areum of T-ara is getting married to some normal office worker.
Does anybody know what the other members are doing now? I remember Jiyeon being so popular, and then their scandal happened…
File: 1565815674641.jpg (88.87 KB, 1026x616, 2BVunQo.jpg)
Faye Wong hasn’t said a peep about 1 China for years, and I’m sure she’s being pressured more than Lay could ever imagine, especially as a Chinese born HK immigrant pop star with a massive Canton-specific fan base. Her silence is loud and admirable.
But I suspect the govt is pressuring SM directly instead of just specifically targeting idols like Lay; SM is terrified about being pushed out of the CN market. When k-pop isn’t literally banned, they make a fuckton of money touring and doing endorsements there, and a massive % of Exo’s rich saesang fans buying thousands of CDs and expensive gifts are spoiled Chinese teenagers.
Chow Yun Fat has been pro-HK for years and is still alive.
It's one thing to post a generic "One China" statement and quite another to post words specifically supporting the brutality of the police and armed forces towards HK citizens, like these celebrities just did. Nobody forced them to do that.
Besides, Jackson's family originated from the mainland and he's been pro-China for years while Lay has been a government ambassador even before the Nine-Dash Line controversy. So they definitely endorse and support the CCP stance of their own free will. Fuck them. >>44637
It takes at least a month to learn a dance, a little more if you're practicing choreo for B-sides. Plus recording songs isn't a one-day process; I used to sing professionally and even recording the smallest inflections and harmonies can take up to 5-6 hours. All that time adds up even when idols don't eat or sleep.
By best they probably mean best looking. I can't find the video now but before she debuted with Red Velvet she performed with the other SM rookie girls at some show and she was by far the prettiest there. The remaining trainees are average at best and probably won't be let out until they get enough surgery or SM gives upon NCT entirely, whichever comes first.>>44628
All this talk of promoting as an American artist and yet she banks on her Kpop fame and SNSD name to score shitty gigs that will go nowhere. Joji used to eat vomit and hair cakes on YouTube and somehow turned that into a legit music career, what's her excuse?
yeri wasn't the best, however she was the most comfortable with the camera, looks like a bastardized version of irene, and lee soo mans fav. the other girls were too young (2000 and under). and the other girls were foreign/foreign looking (yiyang and some hidden trainees). >>44637
learning 1-7 dances with 4+ people and being somewhat in sync takes over a month. along with producing and recording the song, pr training, and shooting music videos.

>>44641>The remaining trainees are average at best
I really don't understand why, SM always prided itself with having the prettiest idols. If you train under the big 3, you won't have to work off debt, so I don't think that they couldn't find better girls willing to sign with them.https://www.koreaboo.com/lists/5-rising-trainees-sm-entertainment-know/
Some of them are already too old and nearly all are foreigners, so I highly doubt they will ever debut, especially not with nowadays political tensions.
I don't know her name, but the trainee who danced with Taemin for his solo is rather pretty.

SM considered putting something that busted in a group alongside the likes of Irene Seulgi and Joy? Now I completely understand why Yeri made it in kek, her body and voice is tragic but I've always thought she had a pretty face>>44663
She always sings like she has something stuck in her throat and it's so annoying. Sunny was a better singer than her

>>44602>tortured like Fan Bingbing
Lmao at the retards getting shocked and upset over this. Only kpop fans would expect a bunch of idols to martyr themselves for a political cause.
Yes, I've read the news.
I'm asking where you're got this torture shit from.
What "peak career" do the 2nd gen even have left? Hyuna, Suzy, Sunmi, Hyolyn and the SNSD members are the only ones still in the public eye.
All members of KARA, T-ara, half the Wonder Girls lineup, 3/4 of Miss A, Secret, everyone else in 4minute are all irrelevant now. Idols are disposable and having an impactful career is the exception, not the rule
File: 1565859790715.jpg (62.09 KB, 650x433, a5d8dae7d496be3ee662951fca47e6…)
The shows Sunmi plays are super small and Hyorin is singing in literal malls lol
I find it so shocking, I remember how popular T-ara, Kara, Secret, 4minute, Wonder Girls or Sistar were just a couple years ago and now they completely disappeared.
And those idols back then were also popular individually, they were sent on variety shows alone (e.g. pic) which is not something that Jyp does with Twice.
If the public knowing and liking you is not enough to keep you afloat after disbanding, then they really stand no chance.

If the Forbes Korea Celebrity rankings are any indicator, they already seem to be declining somewhat. #21 is pretty low considering the hundreds of comebacks and constant activity they keep having. https://www.soompi.com/article/1320892wpp/forbes-korea-names-top-40-power-celebrities-of-2019

Anon, she dances like some nasty hoe.>>44694
Exactly, it's gross.
People always act as if kpop is superior because it's more "pure" than western music, but this is just cheap and nasty, no matter if it's an american or a south korean woman doing it.
Her voice is really nice, but just like CL she's too obsessed with being "sexy and badass".
This is how she performed at a drama award ceremony.

Somehow despite having made so much money for them, SM is giving Exo the f(x) treatment. I really wonder why.

Tbh I think most of the guys in this list are pretty ugly as well and I have no interest in anything produce but that's beside the pointhttps://pann-choa.blogspot.com/2019/08/theqoo-12-rumored-trainees-who-will.html
>Why are they all so ugly?
Lol like we didn't see the pictures of those produce 101 kids before their extreme plastic surgeries
Meanwhile the koreaboos in the comment section:>I went to japan and all the guys are so ugly!
>>44697>SM is giving Exo the f(x) treatment. I really wonder why.
Because despite relentless promotions, NCT hasn't hit big yet and Exo has yet to begin declining (second to BTS is still bigger than everyone else).
SM is hoping that Exo-Ls will lose interest in them and move on to NCT if they don't get any comebacks, but all that's doing is making the fans hungrier for whatever crumbs they get, like Blackpink. I doubt Baekhyun would have sold 500k albums if Exo had constant promotions >>44695
Because Exo was pretty much silent throughout 2018. Red Velvet had Bad Boy and the North Korea performance in the first half of the year which gave them a lot of international attention. Twice has maintained their fame but they're not exactly growing at the same pace they did in 2016 plus they have no Western clout. Kang Daniel is well-liked by the Korean public for whatever reason, idk either. I'm guessing BP getting the Coachella gigs and mentions from Ariana Grande/Will Smith/Little Mix helped boost them to #1 over BTS, especially since it seems like the celebrities mentioned them without being harassed by their fans online (unlike Armys)

>>44715>exo aren't rookies of course they aren't going to be as active as nct.
But this doesn't make sense seeing as they would bring in a lot of money if they were allowed to be more active. Baekyun's solo sold over half a million copies, why isn't SM milking their fame more? They're letting a huge chance of making money go to waste - money that could also be used to further promote nct.>>44714
Lmao, how would you know that? That's only wishful thinking anon.https://pann-choa.blogspot.com/2019/08/theqoo-jackson-bringing-red-flag-of.html
Jackson is going completely overboard with his love for china's money now. Most international fans have already cancelled him.
And this is an interesting read for everybody who's claiming that not posting pro-china shit will literally
get you killed…https://pann-choa.blogspot.com/2019/08/theqoo-todays-tweet-about-hong-kong.html
It's nice seeing him and the other bootlickers get cancelled by koreans and int fans as well.
They deserve all the backlash they can get. Hopefully it affects their pockets too
>>44727>Hopefully it affects their pockets too
I wonder just how much they earn in China seeing as Lay wants to terminate his contracts with Calvin Klein and Samsung despite risking hefty penalty fees.
This model might have to pay 22 million for doing the same thing.https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7356215/amp/Chinese-supermodel-faces-prospect-22-million-penalty-Coach-terminating-contract.html
~80% of his major revenue is from china. he'll be missing out on millions of dollars by losing his fame in china, especially since many exols in korea hate him now
kpop stans equate being a solo stan to supporting one china. they don't actually care about these issues unless they are actually from china/hk.
I was a fan ages ago and watched some show that followed them around and their schedules really were insane, their management was one of the worst (video is them having to perform while it was -18 degrees).
They aren't good singers, but they did work hard, it's not like they're as lazy as many nowadays idols, their downfall wasn't their own fault.
Jiyeon debuted so young that she likely doesn't have any kind of education either, her only hope is probably marrying some rich old guy.

i feel for her, she was torn to shreds when after school first debuted for being fat
after she started crash dieting and being sponsored by diet pill brands, bekah was singled out as the "fat one" and got kicked from the group for it
yep, seems like the China vs. HK shit is reaching a tipping point so I wouldn't be surprised if these idols were promised the world seeing how successful former Chinese kpop idols have been.
And as much as Koreans hate them they will still keep picking them and debuting them because, money talks. Must be great to be them kek.
These people are disgusting and I wish their Korean agencies would kick them all out. I remember what they did to tzuyu who was a teenager but had grown men spreading hate towards her in the media.
I know we, rightfully, shit on the Japanese and Korean entertainment industry but the Chinese one is also disgusting in its own ways.
You have a bunch of extremely overpaid actors and singers who most of the time lack basic talent but are worshipped for their looks by rabid fans who will attack everyone who criticises them or dares to be a fan of someone else. (it's almost like kpop fans but on a larger scale and way crazier).
And everything these celebrities do is so obviously fake and rehearsed, there's absolutely no authenticity there. Even on social media all they do is to say how much they love china and post heavily photoshopped pics.
It's no surprise that Hong Kongers and Taiwanese celebrities are posting this when uyghur celebrities have always posted how much they love china and shit when their people are being held in camps and live in fear everyday.
It's all fucked up.

Has anybody else also thought about just how weird it is for somebody from gigantic China to move to a small country like Korea for a career in the entertainment industry? It would be the same as if somebody from France or Germany moved to Finland or Iceland to become a singer, or an American who tries to debut in Cuba lmao. The Chinese try to fight against the stereotype of them only being able to copy, but if you don't even have your own successful music industry despite over a billion citizens…>>44799>I had never heard about it before coming here.

Seems like Koreans are just as dumb as ifans on twitter and allkpop
Yeah, it's sad. Virtually every single thing in chinese media is either a shameless rip off of pre-existing non-chinese media or something that actually came from somewhere overseas be it HK, KR, JP, Taiwan, US, EU, etc. etc.
Even some SEA countries have more interesting entertainment industries than that shithole. They'll never fight that stereotype because copying really is the only they can do.

wonyoung is rose/lisa level skinny
honestly she may be even skinnier
if she fills out she's going to get so much shit
like most idols most of her appeal seems to be centred on how she look
Can they'd stop talking about her and other minors bodies?
This will just make their companies want to sexualize them even more.
Go fucking rave about an adult woman.
>>44815>I can't believe the much prettier woman in this video wants to look like Nayeon. What the fuck?
beauty is subjective
have sex, incel
Lmao twicefag. Anon didnt even say Nayeon is ugly, just that the woman in the video is prettier. Read the comments section, even your fellow onces admit that.
Also I felt bad for her cause she is literally a model and would rather look like a chernobyl bunny. She needs to love herself.
This video is ridiculous and looks like it was made by a 13 year old. You can't just diagnose someone from a few-minute-long video or claim that they must be dealing with severe issues.
Maybe she does have health issues, mental or physical but maybe she's just awkward in that video or is going for a mysterious/edgy concept here.
If you watch videos from blackpink you'll notice that she touches her hair 24/7 while looking at herself to check if it looks alright. Their fans keep making shit up.
Nta either but it's funny how sometimes anons get away with swooning over an idol, even if they're unpopular itt and sometimes you get attacked from multiple anons for something that they (sometimes purposely) misinterpreted/misunderstood and then they accuse you of being a stan.
Would be more fun and more suiting for the thread if all current stans/fans left the thread and only those who aren't into kpop anymore and just read stuff about it or are casual listeners remained.
Apparently some guy started masturbating during Red Velvet's Power Up performance today and came on the girl sitting in front of him.

Kang Daniel is selling those cheap, generic and single-use glowsticks for 10 USD kek
I remember some other Produce trainee whose name I've forgotten was struggling during the singing lesson because he was a rapper and Nayana is a very high-pitched song that even the actual singing trainees struggled with. You could see Daniel stood behind him smirking while the coach told the guy off.
Then he came forward, sang almost as poorly, and made some smug remark about how idols should be good at everything, and that's why he's such an amazing singer.
If any other trainee had done that they'd have been evil edited to hell and back but Daniel was Mnet's golden boy so of course it got edited like he was an amazing triple threat.
The trainee he was nasty to got into some scandal very soon after (can't remember what it was now but it was bad enough he had to leave the show) so everyone just automatically started acting as if Daniel hadn't acted like a moron that time.

This is pretty stupid. I honestly believe that whole lazy Jennie phase was due to heavy restriction for weightloss and not being on uppers whilst restricting, and whenever she's in a situation where she can't manipulate her weight she acts like a crybaby. But who can blame her when she's in a group with ana queens Lisa + Rosé, probably watches them starve themselves after eating for the camera and figures she can do the same too.
(Sage for huge tinfoil)
I love that we can discuss things in this thread without someone getting triggered
because someone said something remotely positive about a group. In this thread, we genuinely find points to criticize instead of just blindly hate anything that has to with Korea.
Unfortunately it is not an isolated incident. I remember just a month ago there was a story about a male fan masturbating at a Momoland fansign. It wasn't a Korean fan though, I believe he was Mexican. https://www.koreaboo.com/stories/male-fan-caught-masturbating-momolands-concert/
Also, while I'm not denying that male fans can be awful, I feel like female fans can be just as bad sometimes, what with all the cases of attempted kidnapping, break-ins, stalking, sexual harassment/assault, etc.
Male fans like the dude who tried to kidnap Taeyeon on stage, the dude who followed one of the snsd members to her house, this video of one of the itzy girls who is super young https://twitter.com/JlNSWRLD/status/1162444646854877185?s=20
, that's not even on the level the AKB girls endure with dudes who stabbed members or the girl who was almost assaulted in her apartment.

this has been mentioned in the previous thread, but there's actually something weird with dahyun's head. im assuming she had a shave because her chin suddenly looked pointier. (it could also be just the ~styling~ or ~weightloss~ kek but her head was the first thing i noticed when she appeared.
It's so obvious…Jennie is probably not even 5'3 but somehow looks taller than their tallest member lol but ok that's so it doesn't look awkward but then it's always her at the center too and she get the clothes that make her stand out from the rest.
YG doesn't care that fans are pissed cause even their stylist knew what fans think about all of this.

She does have a very nice body, but she's not the ana model with the face of an 8-year-old she claims to be.
This is why I like american shows, at least they reveal "the truth" lol
Jennie is apparently the heaviest BP member at 110lbs but I always feel like Jisoo looks heavier at 100lb.
This profile information also seems so weird to me because Jisoo, Lisa, and Rose are all 99~100lb whole Jennie is usually placed around 110~115lb. She doesn’t look 10lb bigger than the other girls, why wouldn’t they round her down?
