    I'm so hurt to my very core, my eyes are pooled with tears even as I write this. My heart breaks for her family, friends and the members of f(x) as well as SM.
    The sky has gained another shining star. I'm so sorry you had to suffer all alone. I'm sorry that there wasn't anyone to help you and that you felt like this was the only choice you had. You stayed strong for so long, you fought hard to stay on your feet. It must've been so difficult for you. I hope you're at peace now, surrounded by love and light. Rest well Sulli.
    To anyone who may be struggling, please don't hold it within you. Please speak to someone and please know that you're never alone. You don't have to struggle by yourself with what you're going through. My inbox is always open, even though you don't know me personally I will be a shoulder to cry on and I will listen to you with an open mind and an open heart. Everyone please take care of yourselves and be kind to each other, your actions have a larger impact on people than you realize, especially anonymously on the internet.

    I understand your perspective that she could be "doing it for the aesthetic" but I mean come on, really? We're talking about Mikan here lol. She's the same person who used to avoid questions about her ethnicity  and tried to hide behind the Swedish label instead of being upfront about her ethnicity when asked. She literally jumped through hoops in the past to avoid her middle eastern heritage whenever she could. You have to put in all these other factors when it comes to Mikan, given what we've seen her do over the years. It's obvious she isn't doing this for aesthetic purposes but rather internalized self-hate. As previously mentioned she is more confident in mentioning her ethnicity in recent times which I'm happy about, but it's still evident that her skin is something that will take a while for her to truly love.

    Even if it's just a filter there are tons of other filters that don't lighten your skin. There is no way you hold your phone up to take a selfie and you don't realize that your skin is being lightened lmao; especially when you have to tap to activate the filter whilst the camera is still on your face (Even if you were editing a pre-taken photo it's the same; you'll see your skin color change when you put a filter on it). You're going to see the drastic difference and for someone who is insecure about their natural olive skin like Mikan, it's what you'd want. Idk how new to the internet you are or how active you are in kpop/jpop related communities, but they are called out pretty much all the time for lightening their skin with filters. Both fansites and the idols themselves. It's still wrong all-around and it's still whitewashing because East asians come in all shades besides ghost-white. No one here thinks kpop stars get a pass for whitewashing, we're obviously not going to call them out in a Mikan thread. I really don't know what you're trying to get at lol.

    I'm late, but am I the only one who feels as though the only reason Venus tried to get a job as a bar girl is because she gets free booze and can drink on the job? At this point I wouldn't put it past her lol.

    Rihanna recently had a Fenty event in korea which garnered controversy because she arrived hours late to the event. Not sure if those photos were taken at the event but I assume they're linked to it.

  6. Xiao added a post in a topic Jasmine Sean   

    I actually feel... really relieved and happy to see Luna's korean family & how they seem to be really accepting and loving. They seem responsible and like they can care for her more appropriately than Jasmine and her family (e.g when they were at church or something in late winter and all were in long sleeves except Luna; not intervening in Jasmine's public shenanigans etc). At least if something fucks up with Jasmine, Luna will have a proper family to fall back on, and honestly that's what we've all been hoping for her to have.

    I doubt it. If they did Jasmine would've taken photos with her to plaster all over facebook like "I mEt hUbBy's EoMmA!! She's KOREAN!!!"
    He's probably pacing things to see if and when he can introduce Jasmine to his parents, or even at all. I know I would if unknown my baby mama randomly appeared at my doorstep with no warning and I barely know anything about her besides our one night stand.

    I love how everyone is posing facing forward but Eddie is just like "gotta get my aSS in the shot!" It doesn't even look sexy, just cheap and out of place. He ruins the thumbnail.

    You can post this in the Gangnam Unnie thread as to not derail this one.

    I'm late, but ITZY reminds me of Gfriend in the sense that none of them are amazingly strikingly beautiful to be the visual but they're not flat out ugly either lol.

    The reality of this is genuinely so sad because in 3 months, it'll have been 1 yr since Jennie's solo was released. One whole YEAR with no mention of the other girl's solos. Even though most of us knew it would end up this way realizing how long it has been is just so sad.

    No one is biased. You literally just stated the obvious for no apparent reason. Someone's language skills improving because they spend their time with native speakers inevitable. It isn't "tea" or a revelation, it's literally just logic that anyone with a brain would understand and not need to state lmao. Are you expecting us to rag on her for improving her japanese? Like what kind of response were you expecting exactly? Jesus christ lmao

    You know I genuinely forgot Ryujin was even center lol. That's how much Yeji shines in performances

    I wonder why they cut that back breaking dance move part from the MV where Yuna was center. By that I mean the scene in the second teaser, it was actually addictive to watch and I was disappointed when I saw they replaced with Yuna eating ice-cream by herself or something

    She's that one girl in highschool where no one really understands how or why she's popular, and yet she considers herself to be so unique and eccentric and "not like other girls" and basically thinks she's the best thing since sliced bread.

    To be honest I feel the same way, she's surely an exceptional dancer but I don't actually find her that pretty if I were to be brutally honest

    She looks black or at least biracial (black & white/something else) to me, no trace of asian. The fact that she had to include "korean" in the title already screams koreaboo which makes me incredibly suspicious.

    I seriously doubt in modern day YG would make her/her make up artists go through the hassle of putting eyelid tape every time she wants to get her makeup done lol. She's a celebrity so it's likelier she has had her eyes permanently done.

    Sounds like she can't handle criticism lol. Don't post your art online if you can't handle the fact that people will critique it and it won't always be positive

    Boy do I fucking agree with the point of Jennie mimicking other singers. The "Rum pu-pum pu-pum pum" in Kill this love was clearly an attempt at emulating Rihanna's voice when Rihanna sang the same line in her song "Man down".

  25. Xiao added a post in a topic Lisa Ring   

    Her instagram followers to likes ratio is so depressing. It's literally so sad considering I have friends with a fraction of the amount of followers she has that get the same amount of likes. The fact that her follower engagement is that uneven makes me feel like she bought her followers, and not from a very good source since some sources can provide followers with better engagement even if it's fake lmao.
