lmaooo she DEF has been lurking, b/c at the beginning of the video when she talks about "kbeauty trying to reach an international market", it is pretty much word for word what I/others said awhile ago. (I'm too lazy too look for the comment). But w/e, I'm fine with people realizing their mistakes, and taking time to reeducate themselves, and their positions in the industry. I think it's totally fine to have an opinion on kbeauty, esp. if that specific company is expanding internationally. However, like she and we have said, she is not Korean, so therefore she can't really speak for Koreans of darker skin tones. (I do believe she can relate to it b/c in America there are still major companies that have incredibly limited products for POCs.)
My dude. She didn't "star" in anything. You need to take your "mightier than thou" attitude and throw it into the garbage. It was a private video that was recorded way before Jenn was ever even on YouTube. Also it was supposed to be a private video, and someone took advantage of Jenn's trust. Jenn never has even given off the vibe that she is this chaste, innocent queen. I don't think I have ever heard her even talk about sex, but why should she have to? Her channel is about fashion, and her life revolving around fashion. She only shared aspects of her life that she wants people to see, and if she doesn't want to talk about sex, who gives a shit? Stop using women's sex lives as a way to discredit their success. I think you're missing the point. This is a person who she broke up with, right when she got an ounce of success, her shady ex saw that and rather than deleting the old photos they shared after the break up - uploaded a video, without Jenn's knowledge/consent to Pornhub. THAT IS FUCKING REVENGE PORN MY DUDE. She didn't star in shit, she was taken advantage of, all because her slimy boyfriend wanted to discredit her success, and destroy her reputation because of her sex life. Listen, I am just as guilty, but you can't be on here preaching some moral high ground when you registered to a site to talk shit, and judge other peoples' lives.
You may not agree with it, but I can guarantee that Jenn also doesn't agree with it. So chill out. Jenn has built her channel around fashion, not controversy, so why don't you focus on that. She has other problematic behavior but this is not one of them. And again, stop using women's sex lives against them. It's bullshit.
Jenn's boring, but I hate when people say she has a sex tape. After she got famous on youtube, her ex uploaded a private video of them together. If anything, it is actually revenge porn, that was uploaded without her consent.
Bro. It is actually revenge porn that was uploaded without her consent. Get that out of here. As it was mentioned on this thread before - after Jenn got famous on Youtube, her ex uploaded the video as a way to tarnish her name and show off. Anyway. I wish that people would stop bringing it up, because while Jenn is boring, she doesn't need to continue to be haunted by some asshole who wanted a little clout and a little revenge.
Mess. lmao. This is OT kind of: I'm not surprised that Eddy sides with Knets and the Entertainment Industry. I think that's his way of saying "Look! I AM part of the culture." He tries so hard to be like, "I have connections, I know people, you don't know what it is like." When even K-celebs with much bigger clout in the industry have spoken out against the way fans, and companies treat their idols, and how Cube has handled this situation. There are def idols that are trying to change this image by talking candidly about relationships that they've had. (But usually they are much older, and their popularity has waned over the years. See: Mblaq's G.O.) In reality, the responsibility lies with the companies. These labels, promote their idols as everyone's boyfriend/girlfriend, and that you could be their girlfriend/boyfriend too! You could have a chance with this person too! Which is fucking unhealthy, and people may ask, "well, why don't the idols just speak up for themselves?" B/C of this very situation, or the Jay Park situation. Besides, if an idol drops the label, or gets kicked out because they talk about how they really feel about fandom culture/their group members/being overworked/just complaining in general - they still have money that they owe to the company. They are in debt to the company, and if they get kicked out - they still have to pay that back. Which - they've spent YEARS training, and preparing, so they have to readjust their lives to going to college, getting a regular job, etc., and at that point they are probably behind their peers that are non-idols. So not only are these idols like forced to have a manufactured personality, they are also forced into silence about everything because these companies are like real life Ursulas and take away their voices for the ultimate prize . . . . . in four years, sometimes even longer.
Eddy isn't an insider, because most of his "entertainment friends" are washed up, wannabe idols that are past the point of being marketable, or just aren't talented enough. He may go to music bank, etc. etc. but he isn't invited into other idols rooms, he probably isn't really permitted to talk to other idols because he isn't on their management/marketing/hair & beauty team. So he has no idea. He has no idea at all how "these things work." idk. I've never seen someone so willing to accept bad behavior, and so unwilling to want to see it change. You also have to remember. Eddy is a diehard fan of Wonho, to the point where he buys Monsta X merch and shows it off. (Pretty sure he did it in a video). So he totally buys into this idol/fan bullshit, because he's a kboo too, and he doesn't see anything wrong with, "I bought this because I love you, now you need to love me." Fans don't realize, merch is mostly just for the company. How many CD's you buy doesn't mean your love is greater than someone who doesn't have the ability to buy 200 CD's from your favorite Kpop group. And just because you are a dedicated fan - still does not mean your Oppa owes you anything. Besides being a fan - they don't know you. They probably won't remember you because they see thousands of people everyday. Yes they appreciate your fandom, and yes they are grateful for you - but they owe you nothing. Why? Because their job is to entertain, not to be in a fake relationship with you.
YO. I wish I could like this a thousand times. Sori took an opportunity handed to her, because she wants to survive. I mean look at Sori's time on reality TV, she was called old by YG, and said her time was up, and if she couldn't make it by 28, why even try? (Which obviously got a huge amount of backlash, but YOU KNOW that in the kpop industry there are probably many more people in power that have that same ageist mindset) What the hell does Coco expect Sori to do? Wait until Coco makes her break and takes over the entertainment industry BEFORE she starts her own career? No. It doesn't work like that. Coco has failed, multiple times. Sori has a chance, her company is giving her that chance, she is HAS TO take that chance. I didn't know this before, but Coco had a solo debut, and tbh, the subpar voice, the themes, the song production, etc - she's always two years behind on the trends. So what? Your company currently favors Sori? Both times you debuted, you didn't get the intended result. You need to give her a chance to succeed. Obviously it sucks giving up your dreams, it is so heartbreaking realizing that you're not going to make what you love doing, work. But man, did it seem like while you were going through the motions, you didn't even have the slightest care about improving yourself.
Okay. I'm gonna have to call BS on Coco, lmao. I am fairly certain she probably knew that Sori was having a comeback, and it usually isn't up to the artist to have a comeback it is up to the company. So her blaming this on Sori, and talking about how she isn't going to promote her because she is pissed, is annoying, and really shows you that their relationship wasn't as friends, it was just as colleagues. Which is fine, most kpop groups have a few members that are only colleagues and not friends. It just happens, you're not going to like everyone you work with. But, she said it herself, the Sori has mentioned Coco's comeback on shows, and has actively promoted Coco along with her own Comeback (which, she says she didn't get from the company either). I mean Sori is using her platform to get people to watch her member's solo as well, which she doesn't have to do. Coco unfortunately has probably started to realize that Sori just picked up a wider audience. She probably realizes that she just isn't good enough, and she is bitter about it. It happens all the time, and it is totally fine she is upset, but I think her anger is misguided.
