Hi all, I paid the server bill for the month so the site can be archived, sorry for the mess, didn't realize there'd be such an uproar. The site's in read-only mode. Happy archiving. Here's a link to a user-made PULL discord server: https://discord.gg/vZFEm75
i used to loooove her posts as i’m a big fan of cosplay and fun/unique makeup looks. over time, her platform obviously grew but with it also her content. my biggest issue with her new content is just how triggering it is for me as someone whos struggled w an ed her most recent stuff is just centered around her body when it has NOTHING to do w the context of the video or whatever she’s trying to promote. a while ago she posted a video of her plants yet for some reason the video is always emphasized on her body in some way. majority of the comments aren’t even related to the plants but her waist. then she posted a wig tutorial where she AGAIN flaunts her body so much being quirky but it’s just so unnecessary. shes showing plants, eyelashes, a wig and the focus of the video is most of the time on her waist. she feels the need to show her body so much which is just plain triggering for me personally to the point where i had to unfollow. i used to love her content but it’s honestly a bit much and i had to stop following her for my own good. not to mention her saying that her body is just genetics when yes, whilst that plays a role, she also has a whole video on how she lost 35 lbs?? i’m sure she exercises and follows a diet considering her body is quite fit. it’s just so bizarre to me that she feels the need to downplay that like? tldr; her content is just v triggering for me personally and i no longer enjoy it. i’m uncomfortable w how much she flaunts her body when the post or video doesn’t have anything to do w it
one thing i noticed with all the ulzzangs is how flat they make their face look? like it doesn’t look 3D at all and there are no natural shadows on the face as opposed to the unshooped pic. daxbin does the same thing and it looks so strange,
just like ddd and ktl they’re gonna get a lot of attention bc their stans support everything they do, even if it’s uninspired and boring. just because something gets a lot of hype doesn’t mean it’s necessarily good. nobody cared that ktl was ddd 2.0 but god forbid struggling groups like momoland pull the same tactics. the only “recent” release of theirs that was interesting to me was dkwtd and kick it imo. i hope yg gives them more creative opportunities other than fashion shows and samsung ads in the future..
to add on to the whole samsung issue, it’s so ridiculous that the host received so much hate for something he had no control over. like this poor man was receiving death threats and had people say he should be fired from his JOB to the point he had to turn off his comments and address the whole thing. risking someone’s source of income, their employment, is not any better than the imaginary hate comments. that is actually disgusting. so many people took the entire livestream out of context, the sad picture of her pouting was her just posing to take a picture. when she was asked questions, her answers were short and lethargic (which, if she’s sick is fine considering that’s what her management arranged for her). during the livestream, the people that did comment on jennie being off were asking if she was okay and telling her to feel better. rosé saying “jennie i love you” was her reading a comment left by a fan... along with all the other comments expressing their love. it wasn’t a response to severe hate, and if there were any hate comments they’d mostly be in indonesian so it’s not like she could understand them either.
there were no hate comments. the host could’ve lost his job. the entire stream is still up on youtube so the hordes of people fighting on twitter could’ve looked up the comments themselves instead of attacking an innocent person https://youtu.be/YSFgXc4yG9k whatever’s going on, i hope she’s able to overcome it and seek help, but this is just ridiculous.
(also the fact that she can’t take pictures at concerts w an iphone bc they’re brand ambassadors but she uses an iphone publicly for her own personal use??)
that izzi girl went batshit after people called her out on twitter, she was mentioned in lolcow too. i can’t even count how much she posted on her story like?? it took me over 20 seconds of fast tapping to get through the whole thing that’s insane if she were so confident in herself then why dedicate so much time to be defensive and reply to all of the “haters” someone pls make a thread on her bc wow
I think she might make one for when she was at Hong Kong, she collabed with Taylor R last month and I believe Safiya wanted to get a lot of footage so that might be one of the next two videos! https://youtu.be/ozZvU4NAP8Y
this! like there’s really a 5 minute compilation just of them gossiping about her fashion taste. i love them and their music but gyuri’s body language and expressions in that v live left a really bad taste in my mouth because she clearly seemed upset, regardless of whether the teasing was lighthearted or not.
i feel like a lot of idols aren’t as close as they appear on camera, which is fine, but it’s interesting to think about. it kinda relates to the discussion of how idols are given personality training and are limited to expressing themselves in a specific manner.
yeah, i actually like a lot of them! i just thought i could add other commentary youtubers people could discuss, they don't necessarily have to be involved with any drama. cody ko and danny gonzalez are my favorite out of the entire community. it was more of a discussion of their content, their online personalities, etc. the slazo thing was the main drama people know of this community so i thought it could be the biggest thing to mention. now that i think about it, there is a lot more to talk about when it comes to alex and chey so individual threads for them would be a good idea! don't really think youtubers less/not involved in drama should have their own threads, so i included them spoilered under other general commentary creators (drew gooden, noel miller, etc.) as for hyojin, i don't think she should have her own thread since everything was basically word of mouth, and as you said, she's currently in a ward recovering. i guess the main thing i was trying to propose was just to see what people thought of them, whether you find them funny or boring, stuff like that
honestly i feel like the darker eyebrows go well with her natural skin tone. as strange as this picture is, her brows look cute in it and the darkness will eventually fade away. i wish she didn’t try so hard to look lighter, her natural tone really suits her imo
