The only Kpop song that I like is Russian Roulette by Red Velvet, though that's probably because I haven't listen to much Kpop in general. I've checked out the rest of the album but none of the other songs could hit the same spot Russian Roulette did. What are some other Kpop songs that have the same 'feel' as Russian Roulette?

No. 87733

>>87730
Full albums are rarely similar to title tracks, you've gotta look for other promoted songs (usually anything with a music video on yt) if you want something super catchy like Russian Roulette. Red Velvet have quite a few songs like that, my favs are Dumb Dumb and Ice Cream Cake. Other SM girl groups like f(x) and Girls Generation are a good start, they all use the same producers.

tbh Russian Roulette is a god tier song and most groups could only dream of releasing such a bop.

Genuinely impressed at how many contradictory statements you've managed to fit into such a small number of words. I wouldn't be shocked if the entire moderation team on LC is underage considering how inarticulate all of you come across as.

And why keep referring to the rules page when the moderation isn't even in the slightest carried out in accordance to it? Either:
1) consistently update it with a list of bannable offences, or
2) stop issuing public bans listing reasons that aren't in the rules, or
3) forget about the rules page and implicitly admit that you’re making up new & arbitrarily enforced rules around every corner that only the most avid LC residents can keep up-to-date with. Which would be totally fine too and in fact a throwback to early chan culture. All that I ask from you is cut it with the duplicity.

Can we share our favourite kpop albums? Mine would probably be f(x) Pink tape & Red light imo they the have 0 fillers. My favourite songs from their other albums would be sweet witches,love, lollipop, mr.boogie,ice cream,jet, zig zag.
Wonder Girls reboot is also a good one
Brown Eyed Girls usually have good b-sides BASIC and Black box are decent, AOA also have good b-sides (sometimes even better than titles) Under the Street Lights, Girl's Heart, Just the two of us, You know that, 10 seconds, Ninety Nine - for example
Best japanese albums to me are SNSD Girls & Peace, After School Dress to Kill
As for boy groups Exo, Shinee and sometimes Vixx are kinda listenable, oh and idk about their other songs but Sunset by KNK is like the best boy group song ever to me

I agree with your opinions on f(x)’s discography and what you said about BEG, but I would say that EXO’s and SHINee’s can be considered pretty good for K-pop and beyond just listenable. SHINee’s later stuff from Odd and beyond especially would be considered some of my favorite albums.

i haven’t agreed with an opinion this much in a while lol. the only difference i have is that vixx, exo, and shinee are top tier when it comes to boy group discography. even though it just released 1719 by hatfelt has no skips for me. miniskirt by aoa, truth or dare by gain, perfect velvet by red velvet, purpose by taeyeon, blooming days by exo-cbx, odd by shinee (i think it’s one of the most well put together albums in kpop), goodbye by bap, and revive by beg are ones that i always listen to.

Apparently I don't like many full albums beyond 2nd gen, I'm pretty picky and always delete songs I don't love from full albums. It's funny because I can have like, 15 songs from one group but they'll be from 10 different albums. And some of my all time favourite songs are the only song I like from that group. Kpop is really hit and miss.

I like all of Exo's albums, especially their first but imo nothing beats DMUMT.
Many thought Tempo is too weird (vocally it's god-tier) and therefore didn't even give the rest of the album a chance but the other songs are totally different, I absolutely love all but one. Smile on my face is probably my fav, at first I thought it must be one of their earlier songs because the intro has a sort of dreamy old kpop sound to it. 24/7 is also very sweet.

i saw this too, it seems like it stemmed from suga posting a screenshot at a random time, and then suran posting it at the same time, but having the lyrics "are you happy now" that were at a different time

knetizens seem to be dismissing this as suran attention-whoring/doing media play instead of a concrete dating rumor since she was the one who started the previous one by captioning something as a play on suga's

her response is super weird though, she basically posted in a comment that "the collab thing started with mine and i didn't think he would collab more after me" as if artists don't collab super often with other artists….

Just speculation on my end but I wouldn‘t be surprised if idols do this because they honestly don’t see anything wrong. Their job deals with having to maintain harsh beauty standards regularly in a country where lookism is already common among non-idols and non-entertainment domains. It’s an open secret that many idols have eating disorders/suffer from disordered eating patterns. Seeing low weight numbers and displaying them as some sort of prideful accomplishment might feel normal to them—even if it’s not the case for most of the general population in the world.

Soyeon’s already way more likely to reach Hyuna-tier levels of popularity than Soojin. She’s responsible for so much of not only G-Idle’s music but also for other artists’ too. I feel like Cube wanted to debut her as a solo artist but realized that she needed a group to carry her their first.

Anyway, her clips on Queendom make her seem hard to work with, and the fact that she conveniently has the most lines on tracks she’s helped produced contributes to my image of her as a little self-centered.

So SM has been offering this service called "Dear U Bubble" since early this year, where fans can pay to basically have a "private" SNS conversation with their oppa

Basically they get "private" canned messages into their phone that feels like they're being texted directly

It's so creepy, and stars are taking it super far with the boyfriend fanservice. I wish all of this boyfriend image selling would go away, this just feeds the preteen delulus even more

i agree, eating disorders are likely rampant in the industry due to the pressure to look "good".

i was watching a vlive the other day with nct dream, and jisung read out a comment asking jaemin to eat more, and jaemin basically laughed and said he was 55kg (120lbs) but now he was 58kg (127lbs), which is still teetering on unheathily underweight for his height at 5'9"/5'10"

I hate how everybody always shits on fangirls and pities idols while everything they do, no matter if it's their lyrics, their dances, what they post or what they say during fansigns is manipulating teens into becoming obsessed with them. I do feel sorry for the nugu female idols who have to endure sweaty neckbeards, but not top groups like Exo or Bts. They're nearly 30 and millionaires, doing fanservice is obviously their choice, they ramp up it up because they know it sells. Baekhyun and Kai also do that despite having experienced first hand how their fans react when they date. It's their own fault, you can't profit of selling fake love without one day having to reap the consequences. All idols are basically scammers.

SM artists get a good deal. That 70% cut of overseas promotion is what you want when you're doing massive dome tours. The other categories are chump change in comparison. It's also not quite accurate, the cut of physical album sales scales with the amount they sell.

I would love to see a source for these though, not 'kbizoom' or w/e but the actual korean source documents. SM's distribution was revealed in the court documents from JYJ's case, and presumably it's not the same for every group anyway, not even for TVXQ since they negotiate when they re-sign. I don't remember seeing any other companies releasing information like this in detail, except for this info on JYP which contradicts the chart

If this is true, then Lucas and Ten from SuperM/WayV and Taemin got the best deal, because they mostly promote in China/Japan respectively, and in the US/Europe with SuperM. I guess Mark and Taeyong too since NCT127 did a lot of US touring.

I thought SM artists stopped accepting gifts years ago? Anyway airport fashion is like this huge thing in Korea so I know for sure that their airport outfits are mostly borrowed from stylists. Sometimes even the stuff they wear on vlives/vlogs. They can afford nice clothes regularly with their own money but probably just afford the low-middle and mid-tier luxury stuff, but definitely cannot afford to dress in head to toe high-end luxury like this on the daily. Their last comeback did do well so they could just be beginning to rake in the cash for themselves. Can’t speak for WayV though bc they’re loaded nepotist kids

They definitely aren't poor but they're not making enough to live on their own. Look at nct, they live in a pretty cramped apartment and have to share a room in pairs. Living there, their expenses are covered by SM, but it's not mandatory to dorm (Red Velvet revealed this And also Chenle isn't dorming) They'd have to pay pretty penny for their own place in Gangnam Cheongnam-dong area. I get that it's more convenient to have all members in one place for schedules but I think those guys would rather live on their own or at least have their own room

Day6 is halting all promotions days before their album releases, I hope they're all ok, I can't see JYPE doing this unless it was really bad, but maybe this is finally a step in entertainment agencies treating their artists like people and acknowledging mental health as an actual thing

offtopic but this context is funny when you think about kpop fans bitching about how much their faves hate promoting overseas and companies forcing them to do it, when that's actually when some of them get a decent cut of the profits. like, yeah, i'm sure it's draining to do all the overseas promotion with the jetlag, and having to do media in your second language (assuming you speak the language at all) but at least they get paid well for it.

99% of idols are narcissists. It’s a given fact. Nearly all of them probably suffer from anxiety and depression or other disorders. They coexist, it comes with the whole package. You can’t convince me that any of them are mentally stable.
Quote from the article:
“Cinderella Stories” are non-existent, especially in Kpop. Celebrities hustle their entire pre-pubescent lives to make it in the entertainment industry, and they do so only because they are confident in one thing and one thing only: themselves. To even want to be a celebrity you have to not just believe, but actually know that you are better than everyone else, and deserving of the extra attention, respect, and money that the masses will eventually heap upon you. And even if they don’t start as narcissists, it’s easy to believe that Kpop idols could evolve into them. Kpop fans fuel the celebrity ego with fervor. They wait outside for hours in the rain, snow, and heat just to catch a glimpse of their favorite idols on their way to work. When the two minutes it takes you to walk from your van into the radio station equals 6 hours of a fan’s time waiting for you, it’s hard not to start thinking that you are in fact better than everyone else.
Meanwhile a “fanmeet” is basically a euphemism for a tribute ceremony: the idols sit on an elevated platform as their fans proceed one by one to kneel before them to offer up expensive gifts before the idols give them a smile, pat them on the head, and send them on their way. It is this kind of over-the-top fan behavior that allows idols to start believing in their own hype.

It's not even just talent, the rich kid idols never even had to develop a personality. That's what was so good about the 2nd gen idols. If they weren't talented, you could bet that they'd be funny at least. I was rewatching old idol variety episodes from around 2010 and it's amazing how hilarious they still are. Female idols aren't afraid to look dumb or ugly and they say pretty edgy things (relatively). Nowadays, there's maybe one funny member and the others stand around looking blank or there's just obviously scripted fan service moments. Twice are probably the best of the bunch.

Youth with you is so much better than all produce or korean idol survival shows.
The contestants are between 18 and 28, the majority in their mid 20s (the older ones are actually the most popular) and many of them also have a more unusual look (like Amber but without the obnoxiousness). There are no catfights either, they always support each other.
Lisa is one of their mentors and sometimes acts a bit "strict" but the main mentor is so sweet to them (and also younger than most trainees). The produce judges were always unneccessarily cruel and in jyp's case creepy on top of that.
Talentwise they're in another league too, while there were some contestants who couldn't sing well it's nothing compared to the shitshow of the akb48 girls.

I don't understand how anybody (besides uncle fans) can watch nizi project, just their ages already make me uncomfortable. The number 1 in youth with you is 25 and just as cute as somi or wooyoung.

It's so funny how Yuri was 'Black Pearl Yuri' at her peak and it was considered her charm. Obviously, it's still fetishisation and gross that darker skin = sexier, but if she had debuted today all the comments would be "Pretty, but she looks SEA", "I prefer white skinned girls" etc.

idk if jungkook's been in any shady scandals besides dating a trashy gf and hanging around gross tattoo parlors.

I also think they've covered up a lot about jimin especially. I cant believe him hanging out with girls at a bar has been buried so easily by ratmies.

Uhh I wouldn't go as far as to say black people created kpop. 4th gen kpop maybe, but 2nd gen seemed to be super influenced by Jpop/Jrock, while 1st gen seemed to be influenced by US boy bands in general.

It's because celebrities are typically mentally stuck at the age at which they become stars. He's kind of similar to Justin Bieber in a way with the early fame and the shitty tattoos and generally edgy behavior.

For Jimin, its the racist stuff he's done : japan atomic bombing tshirt and calling jungkook a nigger. (They could reveal something about jimin's racist attitude that would tarnish their ~woke~ image that ratmies somehow believe) . For V, he's been caught smoking a juul (in which rats say is "actually" a "crayon holder" kek) His persona's changed drastically as well. I'm just hoping there's a few milk from his new bitchy behavior towards fans.

On the other hand, Suga might have had a relationship with suran that bighit's covered. Him being a heavy drinker could possibly lead to some milk.

I came across this video and realized that we should all envy the 3rd/4th gen [delusional] kpop fans that missed Big Bang's reign. Sure BTS's wokeness and album concepts are very contrived , but G-Dragon's supposed "geniusness" was on an even worse level, to the point that the general public believed that G-Dragon was a legend. Koreans as a whole like that BTS is popular, but they're not necessarily equating them to Picasso as G-Dragon was basically regarded in the past.

Thank god for that scandal to finally put a nail in the coffin. I always thought that G-Dragon's "composing" is sub-par, his voice is nasal as hell, and he looks like a twink. The evil is defeated, truly.

it's because they primarily promote in china, they're pretty much never allowed to promote in music shows in korea

and unfortunately in china they're not popular because SM's sister label isn't big in China, despite most people knowing they're under the SM flag.

Their "sister label" not being big doesn't have anything to do with it. Wayv promote more than most chinese boy groups thanks to SM.

Big Bang was literally formed by an idol show, made public friendly pop music their entire career, and had the idol management formula just like any other idol group. How is this basic ass pop song the work of a genius?
>>88320
I too was also perplexed as to why Ikon failed and I think that this is due to the rise of BTS. Big Bang was regarded as senior idols by 2013, and they hardly released anything in comparison to BTS at that time, when you consider that Alive was in 2012 and Made came out in 2015. BTS had consistent comebacks which always centered around the artistry of the group (i.e, "legitimate" rap and Suga & RM's producing/composing abilities). That gap between 2013 to 2015 gave them enough time to create their image as humbled artists. Then the gap after Made (2016-) gave them an empty house to fill the shoes of the "Kings of Kpop" role that Big Bang had (with YT views and their crazy fans). Big Bang may have not been exiled by 2015-2016, but when they did come back, they had aged, and younger fans who found the artist BG image appealing would naturally gravitate towards newer groups (aka BTS). Why stan an older boy group when they only release stuff every 3 years (and are basically retired)? Big Bang did nothing for the next couple of years, but BTS was really lucky when BB went through the Burning Sun scandal and lost respect from the Korean population. Now they truly have no other BG on their 'level' of respect except maybe Seo Taeji & the Boys (for domestic popularity), but BTS's success is absolutely unheard of (Psy is regarded as a joke, fyi). This means that BTS will continue to be celebrated by the Korean GP as Big Bang was referred to as "Gods" for years, and that they will likely have to face similar scandals, especially something like the Burning Sun scandal, to be disavowed by the public.

No. 88328

>>88327
Let me also add that my mentions of artistry and them being "humble artists" are not my personal opinions of the group–this is just the image that BTS projected at that time that made them stand out from other idol groups. Especially from Exo, who from 2014-2015 were probably the top 3rd gen boy group, but projected completely different (SM puppet) vibes.

Bts' legacy to the gp is being really succesful in the west. Bts dont have the gp support that bigbang have. bwl is their highest ul and reached 1 mil because it was during their peak in the west and the gp took an interest in their success. Bigbang are idols, but its true they're not looked down on like the gp does to idols. The gp likes them for their music and stage presence, performances. Contrary to what kpop stans think, koreans dont fuck with kpop like that. People that stan kpop groups mostly stan for visual and the idol experience and theyre usually mostly young people. Idols are seen as robotic, untalented and just visuals.This is why the gp likes mamamoo as well. DKDKTV i think did a video about it. Them and bigbangs performances arent robotic, they actually have stage presence and hype the crowd. Bbs made album series were really succesful. It was recently posted how one of the songs from one of the series album charted no 1 until the title track of the second series dethroned it. They also had 1 million uls for four of their songs on that album series. Even with all bigbangs controversys throughout their careers their popularity never halted but the opposite. Flower road even after tops controversy had 1 mil uls too. I'm looking forward to seeing how seungris mess will affect the group. Knetz might hate them but its mostly armys and exols on nate, pann, naver so knetz might complain about them but the gp seems to still fuck with them heavy especially gdragon. This is why they get away with things that would typically destroy other idols careers.

A twitter account posted about it before and armys attacked them. Armys refuse to believe the gp doesnt stream their music. Even knetz are sick of them ruining melon and unorganically charting all their albums while good songs get pushed down. The account said mamamoo and winner are the most popular kpop group with the korean gp. I've heard it a few times with mamamoo but not winner. But mino is extremely popular that one I know is true. Mamamoo and bigbang are the two groups the gp calls musician-dols. They're idols but they're actually talented and free and arent stereotypical idols. The way bigbang has survived all their scandals and a long group break but was still a bigger hit scares me. Like I would think seungri has finally tanked them but korea is still eating gds ass. Idk how many sex scandals and dating scandals they got into. Plus their weed scandals. Pretty sure these scandals would ruin groups like bts especially if its maknae line.

he’s the lee sooman of jpop, except he started his company when lsm was still a teenager. johnny made some of the most popular/successful male jpop solos/groups. kpop is heavily influenced by the trainee system that he used and the music his idols made. i mean sm rookies is a direct rip off of johnnys juniors and smtown live is like johnny’s summary. kpop wouldn’t be the way it is today without having his ideas to rip off. he was a major pedo with so many abuse claims against him from back in the 80s to his death last year. never served any time for it either even though the courts ruled that the victims testimonies were legit.

it's definitely super similar, i wonder if he's just dense or just doesn't give a shit anymore

he's also in the scandal about the itawon bars, knetz seem to be swirling about the rumors and demanding BH provide a clarification, so they probably cant just sweep it under the rug like they hoped

considering how they destroyed gyuri and mino and how bad the outbreak turned out to be, hiding it probably will make it worse

OT but I just watched this documentary, only spanish but here are the highlights
- He's a 21 year old spaniard that came to Seoul at 19
- Used to take classes at a YG subsidiary (?) and claims YGE gave him the opportunity to work at variety/tv shows and as a background dancer under the company but he declined because he wants to be an idol in a group
- Is now working as an actor in a drama and says that all extras are paid the same (the minimum) and that for a 22 hours shoot he's paid 100,000 wones at most
- Continues taking dance classes at an academy to not "lose the rhytm"
- Says that being a foreigner trying to make it into k-pop could be '"violent" and that some agencies specify "they don't want foreigners but accept asians" which he understands but wonders "what happens to the foreigners that try to make it into k-pop, have the potential for it but they're neglected for being westerns?"
- Wants to be the first spaniard to debut as an idol without an agency
- Affirms that foreigners trying to make it into k-pop should look beyond the agencies, that "you became an idol and agencies only give you money"

He seems really nice and a very particular case, any thoughts?

all of this happening reminds me of jungkook's song. it isn't the most complex composition though, it's just a pop song. he's frustrated about not being able to have a normal life like his friends. also possibly about not being able to be with his lover (i can't hold ya)?
but at the end it changes and basically it says he's going to go his way even "if it's opposite of sun" (idol life?) and then:
>yes i will touch ya
in conclusion: he's going to to do whatever he wants now, expect more milk in the future

If Koreans don't care…why do you? I don't get international kpop fans who think they have a right to say who and who shouldn't be in an industry that isn't for them to begin with. There's been half black idols before, half white ones before, fully non-asian actors,models, idols before …who TF cares when kpop takes from African American culture and Japanese pop culture and then just does everything in Korean?

Some Koreans are xenophobic, some a neutral, some think it's cool and it's weird to speak like Koreans are a monolith or like any of your opinions on the topic matter in the first place. At the end of the day these kpop companies are the ones who decide.

Sometimes you guys sound like koreaboos that believe if they can't do it then nobody can. Or like you have yellow fever and don't want the Asian waifu/husbando fantasy broken.

oh for sure. even when FNC released the news about cnblue i was really upset because i thought they would forget about fti, which i mean they did give cnblue better opportunities but i digress. it's not cnblue's fault. same with n.flying, i just really didnt want fti to be left in the dark when they sort of paved the way for idol bands in my opinion. i'm still salty about a lot FNC did but it has nothing to do with the bands, and i feel awful now for thinking badly about them when they're just kids wanting to play and make music, just like fti.

i really thought i had to be 100% loyal to fti otherwise i would be a bad fan as well. it's such a pathetic mentality and very much had to do with me being young i think, when fti debuted i was 16 years old. i feel like the hardcore army stans must be around that age, at least i hope so because that would be… concerning.

So I saw some noise on twitter about NCT Jaemin using the korean equivalent of "retarded" to describe Haechan and now international fans are demanding him apologize/SM say something lol

It seems to be getting mild traction in Korea on Nate but the comments all seem rather mild, ofc its the i-fans who don't understand korean culture making a big fuss

honestly fans are trying to bury it and its baffling because they're just making it worse, when i watched the video i literally heard "retard" instead of "very cool" which is what they're trying to say he said, the subs even use the word "dumb"…

kfans are trying to pretend its a super easy mispronunciation but anyone who natively speaks korean knows it wasn't. i'm half korean, and even though my korean is the level of a fucking elementary school student I knew it wasn't a mispronunciation, the guy doesn't have a speech impediment

a comparison to this would be saying like….fork instead of pork. it's not a mistake a native speaker would make, if chenle did it i would be more inclined to say it was actually a mistake, not to mention this is a super common slang word that teenagers use nowadays. (funny enough, an actual mispronounciation would be jisung in the same video saying "jira" which sounds like "jiral" which means bullshit–that's more like saying fuck when you meant fork)

i dont get why ifans are blowing it up to such a degree, korean native fans literally did not care, but now it's been blown so out of proportion it's actually a problem now

NTA but I found this thread about the Jaemin Youtuber thing. Apparently, he kept on saying the catchphrase of this Youtuber involved in molka stuff. You can find vids in this thread and a summary of the entire thing. There are a bunch of dudes saying that it's been all debunked and are linking another thread but others are saying that it doesn't really explain the whole catchphrase thing. Source: https://twitter.com/meiqifleur/status/1260758985684082693

I also saw a screenshot about Jaemin allegedly joking about Chenle "coming out" when he took his cap off but I haven't checked for an actual video or anything.

I still don't understand why fans push this woke agenda on kpop idols. Everything about kpop is the opposite of woke and yet the moment some idol listens to a song made by a gay artist, they screech "WOKE KING!!1!!"

Is it all a massive cope? Because there are many artists out there who act woke and yet they project that image onto kpop idols, who obviously don't know and don't care about it at all.

i scanned the thread, my korean isnt great (its actually fucking awful) and some of it does seem shady

him saying "hello" in the same tone as the youtuber is a bit of a stretch, since he literally always talks like that but the kimochi bit is a little more side-eye worthy, especially if he actually was the person who wrote it

for context, kimochii is sometime that's pretty prevalent in hentai and it means "feels good" in its core but it's definitely not something a normal korean person would say, it is very popular among the edgy alt right streamer/bj community and definitely has pervy/misogynistic undertones to it. it isn't a word a normal korean person would pick up unless they watch a ton of porn (which is entirely possible, but why are you fucking writing it on a table) or watch the streamers (again, why are you writing it on a table)??

basically it all boils down to jaemin not having a brain and being a stupid teenager with his stupid friends on tv

Does anyone know of the other supposedly racist/homophobic things Jeno and Jaemin are supposed to have said?

As soon as I saw a video of them making fun of Jaemin and Haechan for being tanned, I pretty much knew it was going to be them.

On a side note, I really haven't seen NCT 127 make any of those sorts of jokes (minus Taeyong when he was 12 I guess) and I wonder if it's because SM is really trying to push them internationally so they have to be more "woke."

maybe calling him a xenophobe is going a bit far, but it definitely wasn't a good look especially on camera

ofc instead of saying anything SM just cut that part out of the video and reuploaded it, which is what I assume they'll do with jaemin's "scandal"

like you said, these kids all debuted super young so its not surprising they're all a bit immature and will likely have a slew of attitude scandals because they're stuck in a teenager mindset and are being filmed all the time

if anything it's also me looking at BAP through rose tinted glasses, but I feel BYG did come up with actual "woke" lyrics like BTS is trying to do (or as woke as an idol group can get) and their two main vocalists actually could sing and had good voices, and they had that underdog vibe that BTS rode the wave on for so long

supremeboi is a bighit producer who works pretty often with BTS, he apparently was supposed to be a part of the original BTS lineup when they were going more towards a rap route and not the traditional idol route. he's close friends with suga and RM as well as jhope, despite fans trying to deny that he is

he's problematic because he's written lyrics about rape fantasies (roll by iron) and also is a friend and supporter of the rapper iron, who was convicted of sexually assaulting and beating his then girlfriend.

i believe he also slutshamed some model publicly, overall just a gross skeevy dude who's still somehow employed by BH and close friends with the BTS crew

i honestly dont think styling/hairstyle issues should be placed heavily on the artist, since their physical hairstyles etc are determined by the company

however, the multiple "dark skin" jokes are not cute…asia and korea in particular already has a huge issue with whitewashing/putting pale skin on a pedestal, and idols using darker skin as a negative/teasing point really doesn't make the situation better

the thing is these idols literally dont give a shit, they know their rabid fanbase will support them through pretty much everything except a dating scandal, so they never feel a desire to educate themselves or change.

look at all the idols who've actually been "cancelled" by their fans–chen and sungmin are the only two who have rabid fangirls truly petitioning for them to leave the group, etc while actual shitheads like yoochun and kim hyun joong still can hold fanmeets and stuff despite raping and beating women

it's definitely a combination of fame getting to their heads, and probably more fans watching their moves and looking for stuff to point out

as sad as it sounds, the less favored members probably don't even have fans or antifans that give a shit about what they do, so they usually slide under the radar

like taeil and yuta's behavior with winwin was honestly fucking weird as hell and winwin was very visibly uncomfortable but barely anyone pointed it out because no one cares about them

Can I ask what exactly Taeil and Yuta did with Winwin? I've seen some posts talking about Yuta having a weird phase where he's been trying to convince everyone that he's in love with Winwin but I don't really know much about it because I barely keep up with NCT.

i think it was just over the top fanservice, but you could tell winwin definitely did not enjoy being touched and grabbed at. i honestly think the way 127 treated winwin as a whole was weird, they literally babied him to the max and almost treated him as a doll instead of an adult human

chinese culture is different than korean culture, it's definitely not as normal for dudes to be handsy with each other

yuta and taeil were the worst with grabbing at him etc., whether it was directed by SM or just came because they liked him, it still became very over the top because winwin had voiced several times he didn't like it. you can see a bit of this in the nct life osaka episode 7, where taeil and winwin are in the ferris wheel and taeil asks if winwin is still angry at him over taeil touching/bothering winwin off camera, and winwin directly says "i'd like you more if you stopped doing that to me"

here's a tweet showing a clip of taeil literally trying to kiss winwin in the background while winwin is furiously trying to push him off, it doesn't even look like play fighting anymore, winwin legitimately looks like he's fighting to get taeil off him

sorry, had to split up the yuta one since i wanted to post another picture but the yuta stuff feels more fanservice-y and less truly weird af

the one that stands out the most to me is yuta saying he likes to imagine female characters in anime as winwin…it seems kinda fanservice/gaybaity to me but it's still very weird and winwin kind of just stonefaces the entire interaction

basically if you watch a lot of the videos when winwin was still in 127, you can tell he didn't like getting treated like a fanservice doll

i really like him in wayv, he actually has a personality outside of the gaybait uwu baby and genuinely seems to enjoy being around his members, which is why im totally ok with him never rejoining 127

i think fanservice usually is harmless and idols play it up because it makes money, but when someone is visibly uncomfortable with it its just really weird and gross to watch

Sorry but no. Winwin gets treated like an autistic toddler because he acts like one. He's weird looking, incredibly unfunny, his korean is pretty much non-existent, he can neither sing or dance well, he has zero lines for a reason, the least he can do is endure that. What else would he bring to the table? Yuta is doing him a favor, otherwise he wouldn't get any screentime at all. Plus everybody knows how common fanservice in kpop is, he signed up for that.
Winwin fans are so weird, they love him because he's a "victim". If he suddenly acted normally and got more lines, they'd probably drop him because they'd be jobless since they'd no longer have anything to whine about lol

Stop acting as if he's getting raped, the others only try to be funny and to include him. All kpop groups do that.

the yuta fanservice stuff is typical fanservice and i agree fans probably victimized it a bit far, but you have to agree taeil probably took it a bit too far considering winwin's been shown on camera literally saying "i don't like it please stop", not to mention other members literally calling out the fact that they fought off camera over it

i think if anything taeil just got too into it trying to get some camera time, fanservice aside a grown man should understand how to respect someone's private space lol

why do people think he has a dui? when he got into the accident, it was widely reported that he did take an alcohol blood test and he was not drunk. plus it was a freaking fender bender and he was going like 10 mph. tons of young people get into an accident like that at some point, it basically comes from inexperience. jk gets a gf, tattoos and goes clubbing and hes suddenly problematic, it's genuinely the same logic crazy kfans use

sm coex artium is closing because of profit loss. they are construction another building, which will probably house the new version of coex artium, but it’s on the opposite side of the country and no where near completion. sm is already losing a lot of money, so at this point debuting smngg with the same budget as itzy will make them go bankrupt.

the rumor is that SM's new building is in changdong and isn't going to be complete until around 2024, so what are they going to do in the meantime? were the profits in the coex atrium so bad that they're just going to write off any revenue from that area because it wasn't worth the rent

for reference changwon is ~3 hours by car from seoul, so it's like moving something from san francisco to central california, it's definitely not as populated of an area so rent is probably dirt cheap

This is honestly true. I'll go one further than that most of them had no interest in the show whatsoever and only decided to watch it to shit on Lana and pretend that she's invading their space again. Calling her colonizer and telling her to kill herself (the usual hits) all while once again proving that they need remedial geography and getting into fights with Chinese people who like her.

edit: i did some more research and it seems it's supposed to be a raffle, with tickets costing $15usd each and 150 people being chosen, 2 min each for the member of choice if raffled

not sure where the $3k is from, i can't find anything additional on that yet but i'll leave it up for now because it's not totally outlandish for SM to try to pull something like that

I saw the opposite…? Comments with 1000s of likes wondering why kpop is so successful when this show and the trainees are miles better in every aspect? Not even the most delusional kboo could deny that.
Kind of funny that even China manages to be more progressive than the kpop industry. At first I thought putting an androgynous girls as the center is only woke pandering, but the thing is that the chinese public doesn't like this at all. So they're trying to convey an "empowering" message despite this hurting their ratings and thus also profit. Lisa sometimes ruins it for me like come on girl you're only in your early 20s and have how many songs, 5? What gives her the right to talk down on others so much? But Kun and the chinese mentors and of course the girls are so nice, they really make up for it.

>>89068
After the rankings were revealed some twitterfags had a moment of self awareness and realized they actually need to vote for her instead of only hyping her up (but it wouldn't make a difference anyway, since you have no chance without chinese voters support)
Ironically the girls seem to get along well, Feifei is helping out Lana and other foreign girls who don't speak chinese that well.
The two of them seem to take completely different approaches in trying to succeed: Lana blends in super well, most chinese likely assume she's half, the other girls call her pretty, Luhan likes her dance, but in the end I doubt that it will be enough. Feifei stands out a lot, no just because of her hair but also the way she dresses. Some young chinese people are open minded and like that but she also got a lot of hate on Weibo.
I noticed that during those shows ranks rarely change, nobody suddenly climbs up significally. There are these two thai girls who got immediately super popular and now they take up 95% of the screentime, so others don't even really have the chance to prove themselves. They might be safe for a couple more episodes but will never make it into the final lineup.

exactly, i saw some nctfans trying to justify it saying he's happy he's with his "family", but that doesn't explain why jeno and jaemin would start laughing. the evidence is damning but fans will cover anything up for their oppas

on another note, if you go to the same twitter account and read the taeyong thread he uses the same r-word slur but fans are pretending it didnt happen (im surprised nctfags havent brigaded the account and mass reported it yet)

Can't speak for other nctfans, but I don't see the situations as equivalent because I feel like there's a difference between saying 'retard' when you're in middle school and saying it when you're 20 years old. Not that I don't think Taeyong should be held accountable for the bullying, but I don't think what you say in middle school can really reflect what kind of person you are 10+ years later. Jaemin's situation is more 'problematic' because he said it as an adult and finds it funny now. Though to be honest, I didn't expect much from Jaemin in the first place so this wasn't really a shock to me kek.

Either way, I think it's stupid for fans to acknowledge it didn't happen. They want to retain their moral superiority while still being able to stan their favorite asian twink, instead of either just accepting that they like someone who is 'problematic' or moving on and finding a different person/interest to obsess over (neither of which is that hard in the first place). It must be exhausting to constantly justify that shit to yourself.

its just funny how nctfags will spam emails trying to get SM to "educate" their idols about using slurs, but also send emails uwuing about how taeyong needs to be protected, like just fucking align on either your oppas are all shit or your oppas all need to be bubble wrapped and protected, its ridiculous

i'm baffled though by the design they insist on going with for nct/most solos recently, because they definitely have good designers in house who have variety and arent just using lazy minimalist excuses and shit font

chen's newest solo album had such a refreshing design and it still retains the minimalism, but i guess baekhyun and nct's concepts don't fit the clean spring look that chen's album had, so SM just copy pasted the shitty concept they use for everything else

the only thing i can see nct losing fans off of is a true dating scandal with pictures and stuff…they literally have several misogynistic members, a proved bully and scammer and fans still shield the fuck out of them. the only thing that possibly would get fans to start actually closing fansites and protesting would be if their oppa started dating a girl "after everything fans have done for them"

im a dream fan and i agree, jaemin and jeno seem like the two that will eventually breed the most drama. haechan had some sasaeng scandals and does seem super narcissistic and is so obnoxious sometimes, but its probably a product of being thrust into training so young and keeping up a public persona.

honestly chenle seems the most grounded out of all of them which is funny considering hes from such a privileged background (the kid literally did not understand the concept of rent) but like there's so many clips of him offering to buy members things without a second thought and he seems rather quiet and thoughtful despite being also thrown into entertainment young, even younger than the rest of them since he was performing on china's got talent since he was 5, and his friendship with jisung actually seems genuine

i really dont know what to say about renjun lol, i follow dream but dont really find him that interesting, and like the anon said mark does seem to be one of the more genuine idols out there right now

my take on what'll happen to the members when bts disbands:

BH will DEFINATELY make jimin go solo. hes really really popular in korea, and I can kinda see why, he has amazing stage presence and hes cute sometimes, but when bts disbands (which is coming very soon) I feel like sk is going to SHIT on him once he goes solo and they realise he can't sing. solo artists are always focused on their singing, if you're a solo artist that can't sing………

I would say the same for v but tbh his voice tone, idk what its called, is really nice and he sounds nice in slow, lowkey songs, which korea loves. as long as he doesn't try singing any high notes………..

unpopular opinion: I think j-hope will be really successful in korea if he goes solo. KID HAS STAGE PRESENCE. he can dance, rap and he holds a better note than jin jimin and v. hes never gotten into any scandals and hes getting really popular slowly with the gp because of his multiple charity donations (hes a millionaire but still) so yeah. he just has to start looking cute

jin: bh wont even try making him solo

suga: producer, hes sick of the idol life

rm: idk tbh, he defs wont be popular with the gp

i can see the older ones being actual ilbe users, the jungwoo clip was so damning, especially with the hand motion and that's not something a regular person would just stumble upon

the way i see it, i judge idols based on how a normal person their age would act. i feel like there are very few people nowadays who can truthfully say they didn't call their friend a "retard" in college or swear/use slurs around their close group of friends, so i haven't really thought much of the jaemin r-word scandal

however, i feel like the general 20-something population don't watch alt-right youtubers and follow misogynistic assholes who beat their women, so if all this other stuff that's come out about the nct guys is true, it really is disappointing

the cactus situation also reminded me of the time where jaemin literally sat on jeno's birthday cake like…you're almost 20 years old, how do you not know to take half a second to look behind you before you sit on something…didn't he also sit and break some other member's thing too? either the kid is dumb blind or he literally doesn't give a fuck about other people's belongings

i'm such a chenle fangirl but here's another clip of him…he always makes sure to address staff politely, in the clip commenters were saying the outfits were pretty, so he made sure to single out the stylists and let them know which i thought was very sweet

i know people give him shit for being a golden spoon idol who likely paid his way into the industry, but he genuinely seems to work hard and doesn't think super highly of himself (at least on camera)

now that i think about it the only problematic thing people have to say about chenle is how he makes colorist/fatphobic remarks which imo is nothing in comparison to what (mostly jaemin) has done.

i've seen a bit of his family in one night sleepover trip and they all seem grounded too and genuinely kind/loving so i'm not surprised he's the same way since they did raise him

No. 89231

>>89230
i havent seen fatphobic comments, but i do have to admit i recall him making fun of haechan being dark, and that definitely is not a very nice thing to do and i hope he learns to not say that kind of stuff

asian culture needs to shed the mentality of making fun of dark skin, i get there's different beauty standards but continously banging away that light = beautiful is honestly so backwards and sad

if anything, i feel the korean members are likely given preferential treatment, which probably contributes to why jaemin and jeno seem like bigger pricks than renjun and chenle. i honestly can't say either way about jisung since he's still young, so we'll have to see…

people in asia literally regard people with tan or darker skin as dirty and poor and it greatly affects social status. nowhere near the same as in the west where a pale person just gets called pasty or made fun of for burning easily. it's wild to me because haechan isn't even dark. he's slightly tanned but still very much a light skin person to me. just goes to show that if you're not paper white in kr then you're just dark

Girl group stans need to realize that while female idols are subjected more to sexism, they're likely just as ignorant, racist and homophobic as their male counterparts. There's no excuse for what they did, you don't need a deeper understanding of racism or cultural appropriation, just apply that >>89262 logic and you immediately see why doing what they did is so wrong. Every little child would get that already. Simply don't do something to somebody that you wouldn't want somebody else doing to you.

Idk if the Blackpink members have done enough to be financially set for life like 2ne1, though iirc some absolute has-beens like Sejeong and JooE made bank off their short relevancy and are still living lavishly.

Anyways it’s true Rosé can’t do much outside of BP… heck, even as it is now, her schedule is significantly less busy than all of the other members. I’d start investing in real estate or something if I were her.

Speaking of misogyny and just idols being gross sexist pieces of shit, apparently dispatch revealed that two members of TheBoyz were posting comments to anonymous questions on a site similar to ask.fm that were super problematic in 2018, and the company apologized and it got swept under the rug

TheBoyz aren't huge nugu groups anymore so their past is getting dug up again and yikes…ofc fans are defending them saying they were young when this happened but the guys were literally like 18 when they posted this…

i looked briefly into the eric situation just now and i have to agree, sometimes you read about korean bullying accounts and its like "this is a bit much" when people say idols threw chairs at then and stuff, but what eric did sounds totally plausible for anyone who's gone to an american middle school

we all had that one group of kids who'd hang out by a flagpole or the lockers and throw shit and be loud, people don't make this shit up because it's so commonplace lol, fans can defend it all they want but this sounds true, and the person who talked about it provided receipts to show they did go to school together

so basically in the 2 years they've been active, there's at least three proven POS members, and now that the group is on that kingdom show everything's coming to light

i agree, i heard a bit of punch and its SO bad, i don't see why they don't just use that b-side you linked, or just do something softer instead of this hard "electropop" they insist on trying to make work

i mean we all know the reason is if they do a softer, vocal-oriented song they cant shove taeyong and mark to the front like they always do

ive always thought nct has better vocalists than rappers, haechan has one of the prettiest vocal tones in the idol industry recently, taeil definitely can sing well, and doyoung and jaehyun also have very competent voices. i dont get it, they have no issues not giving people lines, why dont they just focus on a more vocal song? its not like jaehyun and haechan aren't popular either..

I think SM is tryna push this "electropop" sound for 127 bc it's what they're most known for. Ppl always refer to their sound as "noise music", it's pretty much their concept at this point. I also think SM might be trying to pull something like Superhuman 2.0 bc the original flopped big time (which imo was a shame cus it's honestly hella catchy and one of the best title tracks, but this might be my bias speaking)

I agree it's annoying that they're constantly going for a similar concept. A softer song would def work really well, something ballad-y like No Longer from their Regular album

No. 89342

>>89339
i think this was briefly touched upon in a previous thread, but nct doesn't do bad ballads, it just highlights how weak taeyong and mark are when it comes to anything thats not "hype yelling"

White Night is one of my favorite songs they did, it's a shame they don't do this more often. it's really highlights haechan's vocal color and taeil's technique, but also how weak mark, johnny, and taeyong are

The issue is that this style of theirs is tired now.

Why not try something different, their die-hard fans will like it anyway and then maybe they can actually get some public recognition (but its probably too late anyway).

I used to really hate Haechan but in the past year I’ve grown to actually like him. He’s by far my favorite vocalist in nct, a good dancer, hard working, quick-witted and pretty funny.

I still think he’s annoyingly cocky at times but at least he’s entertaining.

He’s not ugly imo but if he had Taeyong’s face (and was SM’s favorite) I think he’d definitely be the most popular member.

i dont really like his "personality", real or fake on shows and vlives, i think he's really over the top to the point where it's obnoxious, but it's undeniable he has talent and can sing well and dance well

at least he has that going for him, unlike jaemin who's literally only there for his face and fanservice, and this is coming from someone who's a fan. i liked him a lot undeniably because he's quite attractive, but recently i've definitely found myself disliking him more because of the controversies

Seeing the reaction to Mino and Gyuri it is. I doubt it'll do total damage to their careers but part of being an idol is looking perfect and "being a good example for their fans". Netizens will for sure drag them for breaking the rules even if they weren't strongly enforced in the first place.

not to mention two of them are defying self quarantine orders and attending music shows and promotions, they definitely deserve to get dragged for putting other people at risk

the unfortunate side effect of being an idol and enjoying the benefits and salary a well known idol makes is that they're going to be held at a different standard than the normal person, the argument of "oh its the government's fault, they should have enforced the rules" is such a stupid and weak argument

something that fucking weirds me out about jungkook as an idol is the image he has of a naive innocent "baby" that was "raised" by the "hyungs" (older members of the band), it's a very creepy one, comes across so fake and i think it's one of the big reasons why army act like this. i saw a screencap from the recent doc (dont know the name of it, sorry) where he was pretending he didnt understand that people on the road commmuting were going to work… like, you fucking what mate? i actually think it would be good for jk's psyche to take proper responsibility for something he had done. too bad thats never gonna happen! that being said, this wasn't some kind of massively egregious offense, more a case of bad luck.

I’m not gonna deny that this scandal is very real, but this is such a typical move. Rooting for those involved in the nth room chat to get real punishment.

Also, notice how all the idols that were caught going out are born in ‘97; there’s supposedly a group chat of idols born that year, which makes me think that all of them probably have been going clubbing together for a while, but this is the first time it’s been reported because of the extra coronavirus flavour.

Fuck off pathetic oppalogists, the public and government of Korea have been kissing Bts' asses for ages already, they're way too important to them (because muh national pride) to throw them under the bus for that. Not everything is some huge conspiracy against your innocent baby bois.
Jungkook and Eunwoo are the definition of privileged males who hold way too much power. God knows what stuff they already got away with thanks to either money or their agencies simply pressuring the other party to the point of them apologizing for stating the truth. The girls partying with them might have to give away their phones at the clubs entrance or sign something, that's why no pics exist. They could do everything they want to less famous people (like female or younger male idols) and there'd never be any consequences.
This is the same situation like with Bigbang, a couple years ago everybody was "haha they're so rich and famous, true kings" plus brushing their scandals and all warning signs under they rug, and now they go "omg who could've ever known that he's so horrible?!"…

oh i didnt mean to make it sound like you were beating a dead horse comment, i mainly was mentioning that the nct flop/rich kid topic has been discussed extensively before if you wanted to search since there were a lot of people chiming in

sm quality has significantly declined in the last five years or so, trainees that wouldnt have made the cut otherwise have been debuted solely bc of parental money

look at nct johnny, like the dude was training from before exo even debuted, i believe he holds the record for longest trainee at around 10 years. i doubt he wouldve been allowed to stay and debut when sm still had quality control, the only reason he was is because his mom basically paid for it to happen

I'm certain that dispatch does have pictures of them in the club. And they definitely did go clubbing, not just for dinner because who the fuck would go to 3 different restaurants in 1 evening? They waited quite a bit to release this info, getting everybody hyped, now they enjoy the mass triggering of fans after the agencies had to confirm and then maybe tomorrow or in a couple days they'll deliver the final blow lol fingers crossed

>>89536
Yeah, besides dream their ages aren't too far from exo, many nct members would've been of normal idol age had the debuted with them. They're probably to exo what suju is to dbsk: the leftovers. Only difference is that suju worked extremely hard in varieties to get their name known plus they had simple yet public friendly songs.

honestly i believe that too, dispatch for sure has some sort of concrete evidence, there's no way they would try to pick a fight with 4 agencies without some solid proof to back it up (let alone SM and BH)

my theory is that the pictures are pretty bad, or else there's no way the companies would have confirmed so quickly. fans keep demanding for "photo proof!!" but i feel like they'll eat their words if dispatch actually releases them, because they'll probably not just be of oppa sitting or standing outside a bar

i for one just want dispatch to release them so fans learn not to ask for shit they don't want to see lol

also to all the oppapologists in here saying ur poor uwu baby was used as a scapegoat to cover up the nth room scandal

nth room and godgod are top of the current search list, they are not getting buried, the general korean population is not filled with people under the age of 30 uwuing about oppas, there are plenty of people who don't follow idols and wouldn't get sidetracked by this supposed coverup lol

kpop fans are so delusional, deflecting any blame so that their precious baby boys dont get any additional hate

the best part is if these idols had pictures of women sitting on their laps in the bars these same pig fans would be leaving and stop defending them lmfao

dispatch please release the pictures the milk is so good

Thoughts? I really like it, but it seems to be more divisive than Runaway. The mv's a bonus too

I did funny how quickly they dropped their super bright cute concept. At least the mv is properly lit unlike most "dark" concepts.

it sounds like a rejected bts b-side to me, and the use of autotune is excessive

it's not a bad song, im sure if bts released it it wouldve been lauded as "amazing" and "inspirational" but it just sounds generic and uninspired to me

the video is a mess, it reminds me of a budget dna with some of the colors they used

Exactly.

These ratmy tweets are so infuriating to read, they don't know when to back down. You can show them the shit they wrote about other idols just yesterday and they just go "[insert name] who?" or they literally say they don't care because their oppar is the best and therefore allowed to do whatever he wants.
If one of the bts members dares to complain about stalker fans again, I think I'm gonna puke. It's solely their fault that 1000s of little kids turned into obsessed monsters trying to ruin every person who dares to love their oppars a little less than they do.

agreed. dont support this stupid #apologizetomino hashtag but the fucking double standards of ratmys kek

if jk wasnt involved in this scandal they would be shitting all over the rest of the guys for not following social distancing and "look at our uwu princes so inspirational they even did a campaign" but now that their golden baby maknae is involved all they can do is tell people not to dish out criticism as if they wouldn't have jumped all over it lol

not a fair pic to judge him on as everyone looks like squidward with that close up selfie shot. however he's really nothing special. very mediocre. you should check out his high school pics among his classmates. he did not stand out and looked like any other typical kid lol.

he's just an above avg guy whom big hit/ratmys carefully manages the image of, to appear millions of times more than he is.

problem is, all his fans judge him based on the highly edited, cherrypicked photos thinking he looks like that irl… like reaaally?!! although u can say the same for every other shilled idol/actor.

exactly, they're not uwubabies when they take off their clothes on stage, i hate the narrative that they're "young and need to be protected" when its convenient, but "omo hot bias wrecker daddy" every other time

they're grown ass men who shouldve known better not to go out despite anything the government said or didnt say, just because they were allowed to didnt mean they should have, it was common sense not to go bar crawling especially since they shouldve known dispatch was probably prowling the area waiting to catch someone out

Every time I hear a txt song I swear it's like Jimin or Jungkook is singing in the background. Txt have no uniqueness in their voices and it's auto tuned to hell. Plus I don't like bts voices in the first place so it's a rather bad combo. Hate myself for actually kinda liking the song though.

who knows, the korean population knew the rumors swirling about the itaewon group long before it broke the international segment

if anything i feel like she probably just prowls the lesser read korean forums and translates news, or just reads sasaeng rumors

she seems to be a ratmy so i would take a lot of stuff she says at heart, she's trying to say all of this was a coverup for nth room

if she is right though and dispatch is revealing bts stuff because of some contractual end im just excited for the tea and ratmy meltdown

I agree. Some anon mentioned that the nth room articles are trending much more, and I'm so glad for that but these idols clubbing happened almost a month ago, I can't see any other reason why the whole thing bursts out now. Still, they should be held accountable but are fans angry that their precious oppas are clubbing or are they actually mad because they were stupid enough to go out on a pandemic?

i posted about it here>>89547 its delusional to think bts has the pull to cover up the nth room. the nth room is still at the top of searches for almost all korean news sites except the heavily entertainment oriented ones, and even then they are still on the board. besides, the nth room news right now are about a bunch of nobody losers who were running the room, there has been zero news about high ranking politicians etc participanting in these rooms, why the fuck would the media want to protect these nameless losers?

its stupid to believe that the general korean population over the age of 30 gives two shits about a couple of 20-something idols going to the bars during covid, thats like saying the usa used the kardashians to cover up the jeffrey epstein scandal

companies released statements because the rumors have been swirling for a while and dispatch likely had more evidence waiting on the backburner. they admitted it likely to prevent dispatch from releasing more pictures/evidence, not to fucking help korea cover up the biggest sex crime ring of the current decade

this is what i mean by fans being delusional as fuck, like your oppa is not a martyr, hes not used as some conspiracy scapegoat, hes just and idiot for not having common sense and is only sorry he got caught

i was thinking not to protect some nobody sex offenders, but more to deflect attention to a very shameful news story coming out of korea. they care deeply about their international reputation after all and it's been dragged through the mud these past few years. perhaps the idea is that they can keep international people with eyes on korea focused on idols. again, pure conjecture
