This is what I don't get. It's clear with how big his channel has gotten and the opportunities it's given him he's going to be attached to and involve with kpop for a pretty long time. So the fact that after years of being a kpop fan he hasn't stopped to taken a mere weekend to learn hangul at the very least is baffling. But then again we're talking about a guy who got famous off of doing literally the bare minimum so we shouldn't expect much.
Also his reaction to Peek-a-boo was so lazy and boring. He literally used a part of it to talk about that clip that has been going viral of pikachu speaking English which has literally nothing to do with the song? Seems like he was just looking for a reason to make the video longer without having to actually fill it with any substance
LMFAO. He had the nerve to post this when he literally was one of the ppl who went to the airport to greet them with the rest of the fans when they arrived at LAX and he asked them a question that got feature on their official snapchat. Where was they outrage that they were in America when you were getting to meet and interact with them?
And the "American show is for America stars" will always sound stupid and racist when ppl like Bieber, Adele, 1D etc have all participated in American award shows. Heck Shawn Mendes attended this year and he's Canadian. But no one spewing the "American shows are for America stars" at BTS has mentioned him once
This may seem petty, but am I the only one kind of annoyed that Celia tagged along to Korea? There's just something that doesn't sit right with me about the fact that she's receiving some of the perks and goodies the contestants are, just because she's related to one of them. I mean, yes she had to pay her own air fare, but she's staying in Sonia hotel, and Style Korea has been given both her and Sonia some of the goodies the contestants receive as perks. It just seems messed up that the final four (and the contestants who were eliminated in earlier rounds) had to work hard to get to this point, and then Celia just tags along and get to experience the perks of their hard work.
Not only that but BTS is notorious for their Bangtan Bomb videos which give behind the scenes looks at the different events they partake in, in a relaxed, vlog format and its 100% likely they'll do one on their AMA experience just like they did when they went to the BBMAs. Aint no one gonna give you a better BTS AMA vlog then BTS themselves lol and that video will be of higher quality and free lol
When will these kpop/korea youtubers realize your "fandom" isn't yours. They only reason they give a fuck about you is bc you talk about kpop. Otherwise they wouldn't care.
Anyway if this was really such a horrible experience and she wanted to be done with it she would give back the money and then back away from kpop. But the fct that she's gonna keep they money, while simultaneously dragging the fandom that supplied it is messy. And I'll be honest, I don't really buy the whole "my fans wanted me to go and make the gofundme so I did it :)"...Girl if you don't just admit you wanted to see bts... Like the weird thing is, she doesn't even live in the US, so why would this suddenly be her opportunity to see BTS?
he made a video about it. 4:48 and on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6NyoXNhYfY Yep. when the BTS line cutting scandal broke it also was revealed that he's done this multiple times at different kpop concerts lol
They're not really K-vloggers technically but did anyone see that the kpop youtuber Jesslyfe started a Gofundme for her fans to get her tickets to see BTS at the AMA's? She claims it's cuz ppl begged her because they really want her to meet them but, idk, I always side eye when ppl use gofundme for things like this...Thoughts?
I guess ARMY look like a easy fandom to get money from because some reaction that started reacting to them last month asked for money for his ticket too.
Ever since the whole cutting in line at the BTS concert scandal I've been kind over him. It's amazing that he's been able to make a great deal of money, appearances and meet celebrities because of his channel, but at the end of the day, his actual content is really not that great or impressive , not has it really improved over the years so I can't really muster up respect for him or even be to impressed. I definitely don't know where he gets of being arrogant. He's just a product of good timing and consistency, not real quality work or creativity.
I sometimes feel bad for channels like Lala's and Pebbles. Like they legit think they've cultivated a fanbase that's here for them when in reality their fanbase mostly consists of fickle kboos who only care that they live in/talk about Korea. Once they can no longer be someone they can live vicariously through, their "fanbase" will be ghost. (I feel like the only reason Lala didn't start dropping in subscribers after her "I'm not gonna talk about Korea anymore" video is because despite what she says, she still lives there, so she'll have to talk bout it or show her life in Korea eventually. )I've seen it happen so many times with expats and each time it's kind of funny to see how shook they are that their videos aren't doing the numbers they used to. Anyone remember smiling seoul? Even Hallyuback had to resort to doing cringe click-bait videos about BTS just to keep their numbers up to a portion of what they used to be. Simon and Martina have probably made the best transition but I still don't think they're averaging the numbers that they did in Korea. And in their case, they're actually putting out quality videos unlike a lot of these other expats that just sit in their room and talk about NB2 and Korean fuckbois.
Also, it's crazy to me that pebbles has already built a channel around Korea when the total time she's spent there hasn't even averaged more than 3 months. Like she hasn't even secured a job there or a way to stay there for a prolonged period of time, and decided to build the core of her channel around it? Cuz let's be real, she can say she's a "make up/beauty" channel all she wants but her real main selling point is her Korean/Korea story times. I wouldn't be surprised if most of her viewers who voted for her for the style beauty contest did it not because they actually enjoyed her tutorials, but because they wanted to get her ass back to Korea for more Korea club fuckboi story times asap.
Wow I haven't watch Taylor in a while but she's like completely done a 180 from what I remember. I wonder, is it possible that if she keeps this up she's be removed from the snowflake section? Or is it once a snowflake always a snowflake?
I actually caught the tail end of that stream. From what I remember: -Talks about some dude (i think @disour) lying about being rich. -I don't remember 100% but she talks about either him saying he got cut off by his rich parents or her thinking that's what happen, but she feels if that's the case then he's still not rich because he doesn't have the money personally -Makes fun of the fact that said dude would wear the same clothes everyday + a lot of kpop related merch -Says even though he was a horrible person, she was friends with him because he was really funny + she regrets that because being really funny shouldn't be someone's only redeeming quality. -Mentions both PULL and lipstickalley by name saying thanks for being obsessed with her. -Says for that PULL and LSA share and promote her videos more than her fans do, once again says thanks. -Says that PULLs and LSA obsession with her is okay and she's unbothered because it lines her pockets or in her words "provides the coinT" -Basically says she's gonna delete the live because she's "said too much" and she knows people from those sites will use it against her.
Then she ended it I was really suprised to see she was STILL going on about disour and karen despite her saying she's over it. Like yikes Also, I had no idea they talk about her on LSA too. does she have a thread there or was she just brought up somewhere?
Speaking of Celia, does anyone know why she didn't enter the contest? I would think it Sonia entered she would definitely try as well. It would have been weird though if one made it an the other didn't lol
