A youtuber I follow has recently done a video about being gay in Korea, i'll link it if someone is interested (it's in italian but has english subs). Almost all the things he talk about are things in the public domain like almost all politicians being against gay marriage, the aforementioned actor being removed from tv or old folks trying to stop gay prides. How can Edward ignore all those things? He's so closed inside his bubble that he really thinks homosexuals in Korea are too shy to express their sexuality? To me he seems just a machine repenting others opinions and clueless about stuff happening around him. (The video in question: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqvRmk3P4nk )
Ot: i see your point. What I meant was inserting a gay character who's not well developed just for the sake of having a diverse cast and not because that particular character has reason to exist ... But I understand what you mean, I wasn't considering this point of view thank you for pointing it out
I do agree with him to a certain extent, forcing representation won't serve any purpose, but only when it's not needed. For example inserting a random gay character in a movie just because your film isn't diverse enough... Korea on the other hand would really benefit from seeing more of it (in my opinion as an outsider), for the sake of all those people living in the country that feel unrepresented. Edward always seems to belive to the opinions of popular "anti-swj" (I recognised those ideas because I follow some of them) but he fails to realize that what can be applied to the us for example won't work the same in Asia. Maybe america doesn't need more representation but Korea certainly does. After living for so long in one place he should be able to understand the country he lives in and apply his own views to the reality around him, but at the same time be able to see what could be improved.
Happened to me too... I bought two cosrx products because both Joan and eddy said so many positive things about them but ended up destroying my skin barrier which left me with acne for months (I never had so many pimples even when I was a teenager). I know now the dangers of not understanding your skin type because I thought I had oily skin but it turns out that I have sensitive skin instead, so I wish she would take a moment to really understand hers, because all the problems she's still facing might be because of that ) :
A couple of month ago she went to Zara to shop at their sale section and now she's too good for h&m?! bitch please.... she acts like buying one balenciaga hat and a supreme sweater give her any knowledge about fashion. Yeah we get it Joan, you are so much better than us poor unfashionable people shopping at cheap stores, please Joan-senpai teach us how to poorly style designer clothes so that we can all look like jisoo from blackpink, just like you. (sorry if I sound too angry or insulting but I hate people like her, that look down on others interest/choices)
yeah I think it was that.... still a bit too pricey for me ,but at least it has a purpose besides being just really popular I guess. I don't want to shame Joan for her purchases but I think neither should she with other people.
she was so annoying in her latest vlog when she was low-key shaming Kim for buying a 30 dollar Pokemon go accessory, when we all know the last thing she bought was a 300 $ plain Gucci belt just because it was trendy. I don't understand if she's just too full of herself or just lack any type of self awareness...
I think Joan is one of those people who want to look expensive but can't afford to spend too much on a brand, so goes to the shop and buys the cheapest thing she can find (that usually are t-shirts and plain sweaters) then proceeds to rationalize her purchase by trying to convince everyone that she loves it sooo much. That's the only explanation I can find because I can't believe she saw that first shirt and actually liked it.
I honestly don't understand how people that do this don't feel embarrassed, I know it sound stupid, but imagine if the person reads it an actually confronts you?! he also said something like "I bet they (people who criticize this type of behavior) do the same thing when they are alone (in this case thinking about fucking jungkook) " and was like, no honey it's not the same damn thing... I could spend all my day thinking about fucking an idol, but that won't be as creepy and embarrassing as actually, and very publicly, announcing my intention. he just feels personally attacked because he does the same thing with wonho.
I agree, we all had our problem and we all hated school back when we were 15, but some of them just need to chill and stop this complaining thing they have going on, i'm here for memes not to see you whine all day long (but i know that they can do whatever they want with their pages, so i simply don't follow them and just enjoy whatever i see on my serach feed, ignoring the captions) D: I've seen one of them on my intagram feed that has even a fandom name for her own page, and tought that it was pretty odd. Speaking of @negroavocado i followed her when the #gotkellenisoverparty happened, because i enjoy drama, but unfollwed her after she and i don't know who else decided to send viruses to kmabw, that shit was an ugly move.
I don't mind LaLa, I think she's a cool and funny person, but feeling suddenly attacked by a video, in which your name is never mentioned and thinking is about you, makes me wonder if she is feeling guilty of doing what's described in the video.
