why h3h3 though. I feel like them and their audience would be the type to not like her and what she does at all. Also yikes at Meg Turney becoming a bedroom-room-photo-shoot-cosplay-boudoir- patreon-social-media-"model". I use to like her back in her sourcefed days
Looking back on it, the whole thing that happened with Lala was ridiculous but I feel like it ended up benefiting Lala the most. I definitely think Kennie's original Koreaboo video played a major role with Lala distancing herself from Koreaboo bait content. I feel like at first, Lala would overcompensate with all the 'I'm NOT a KOREABOO' and hyper focusing on why Korea sucks, but eventually she struck a good balance. And now, in her most recent update video, she flat out said that if you are subscribed to her channel for Korean content you should unsubscribe. She even called out people who just watched her channel for her boyfriend and she talked about how she wants to start doing comedy sketches which is great because she's funny and has an over the top personality. Meanwhile, the one who did the calling out (Kennie) is stuck doing stories times about a country she only lived in for like 3 months and 'informational' videos about topics regarding said country that she has no authority or expertise on.
I still feel like the only reason he tried to become an actor is because his koreaboo youtube fanbase was over gassing his looks/ability. I'm mean, you can only be told you look like _____ idol or ____actor so many times before you actually start to believe it. I still remember him acting like some kind of super famous idol when he was invited to kcon la a few years back. To be fair, he did have fans there but he was acting like his was freaking GDragon or something. I just don't understand how he thought he'd get roles without being fluent in Korean and being no where near the standard of handsomeness of your average kdrama actor.
about Carson: She actually made a video with Ida (another white model working in Korea) about being a foreigner working in the K-entertainment industry. In it she actually mentioned that one of the reasons she is able to get so many gigs is because she's basically fluent in Korean. Those she may not be the most stunning (imo), she often has a leg up on other foreigner models who audition because she's easier to communicate with. She can take detailed instruction and direction from Korean directors, photographers, etc unlike other foreign model who would need a translater or would have to struggle through the shoot with the little Korean they know and the little english the korean staff may know. This advantage is even more amplified if the role actually involves speaking Korean (even if it's just a little) .There was actually a video where she talked about the backlash she got for ifans for playing a middle eastern women in the korean drama K2 when she's white. She talked about how it would have been hard for the drama to find an actual middle eastern women because she would have had to of audition and be decently fluent in korean. That's why I'm always so confused as to why we don't see Megan popping up in more dramas and music videos like Carson. She way more gorgeous and is great at speaking Korean. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think it could be a visa problem because she does that other show with Hyunwoo
It's so sad, like they are genuinely pretty but that photoshop, whitewashing and bad makeup is ruining it. koreabooness has ruin so many e-famous chicks' looks . Also, they are back on their lying about their idol interactions bullshit https://twitter.com/_risizzle/status/954212528225181697
I think the problem with Kennie is that when it comes to Korea, she knows a bit more than your average Koreaboo, whose knowledge most likely caps at the names of popular idol groups,K-drama actors, and aegyo. But because her fanbase mostly consists of these same koreaboos, everything she does seems super impressive and knowledgeable and so they constantly praise her like she is some Korean culture god. So when there finally are people who come along and call her out for trying to be an authority on something she has no actual experience with or authority on, she goes ballistic and starts showing her true arrogant colors because she's so used to people praising her and being up her ass about her "extensive" knowledge of Korean and Korea. Like, did she notice that no other expat vlogger (like Megan, Whitney etc) put out a video like this? I'm sure she thinks the reason is because they are not BRAVE enough to call out Korea the way she is (*eyeroll*), but in reality they know that even as foreigners who have lived there for years, they don't have the authority or experience to talk about something like that. She should take a hint.
I just came back from reading that Netizenbuzz article about an American media outlet who wrote about Jonghyun death being a result of the pressure from and problems with the Korean entertainment industry and the overall sentiment from the knetz comments was pretty much "mind your damn business America". in that case that writer wasn't even acting like they were an authority on Korean culture and society just because they speak the language and have been there a rough total of 2 months like Kennie often does, so I only imagine what words they'll have for her. I don't think it will be pretty
He put up a recap series of his time in korea and of course it's just filled with which celebrities he partied with and how much alcohol he drank.my favorite part is when he talks about going to the club with Christian Yu and how "he can't mention the names of all the people he saw there". Talk about bragging.
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
