    I think her content just got boring tbh. Even though she's into fashion, she does the same color scheme all the time (black and white). She only just got into adding color, but surprise surprise it's beige or light brown. I get she's into more monochromatic looks especially for her feed, but it's so basic and safe that I just don't see why I would go to her for fashion advice when all her looks look pretty much the same. She seems nice, just boring.

    So many threads have gone downhill and it's not even just run-of-the-mill gossip but strawmanning/odd vendettas.

    I agree ^ When the hair is kept sleek like that without the large waves/mass extensions, it frames her face well. Idk who picked that outfit but it is absolutely not flattering. Like, I like the gold on her but the fit on her body was terribly done. Lisa has broad shoulders so it gave her a boxy silhouette. ....Why do their stylists constantly go against their natural figures, idgi. For trend's sake I guess...?

    Some Twice fans have no chill. We get it, they are the nation's girl group and I won't discredit that but can you just enjoy it please? Like SNSD was the nation's love too, then something fresh and new came along. No one's career is invincible. Just love the time you have with them.

    I mean I know fans gave him this teddy bear rep but for all intents and purposes, Kai's grown. This is the same dude who got a video leaked of him frantically running from fans in the middle of the night and who couldn't even (allegedly) buy a condom in peace in his last public relationship, so if he wanted to be Jennie's "Uber Driver," then that's his call. Maybe he really liked her. Who knows. Mind you, I thought them being paired up was weird, but it was mainly because of the roll out of the news, the timing, and the company responses. 
    I really don't see how one results in the fault of the other...? Wendy grew up in Canada and, by this logic, "acts white," yet still showed marks of ignorance towards black people. Twice. RM learned English through watching American television and even found his love for rap through black rappers but still had his moments too. Just because someone may be influenced by another culture (or even in that culture) it doesn't mean ignorance is suddenly void. It can still be present. Even Amber recently showed that to happen. And...acting like white girls? Not entirely sure what that means either. Does this mean Jessica and Krystal act white too...? 
    Obviously, case in my last point, I'm not denying ignorance, but these are two different instances that shouldn't be conflated. I can't fight ignorance being uninformed. 
     That being said, is there someone who is Hindu(?) that can weigh in on whether wearing deities on clothing is appropriate? I can't give an educated stance on that. Even when I look it up I'm getting mixed answers.

    I like the dark hair on Lisa, but I do wish it was kept like the Insta photo she took with the Kia. The straight, dark, blue-toned look was very chic on her and different from the usual bangs/waves.
    I also still think Jennie should stick with a mono bob, especially with YG desperately trying to market her for Chanel. A sleek bob would give her a more modern look instead of her looking like a baby in middle-aged ensembles. Not to mention, short hair does actually suit her face. 
    Rose with edgy layers would absolutely be sickening. They need to throw the Church girl look aside and let her live. I saw this edit and thought it was amazing. Idk if Chaeyoung/the stylists would be willing but she would look great I think.

    Dark colors suit Jisoo better imo. If they stick with that then she'll be fine.

    ^ This may sound weird, but I feel like part of the hype came from the fact that Korea has a growing shiny new spotlight in the west due to the Olympics, BTS, etc.
    I also think the Oscars was kind of pandering by being like, "See?? We do value representation! Lol" 
    Parasite was a good movie imo. I genuinely liked it. But yeah I do think part of the push was inauthentic.

    Tbh, out of all the girls, I think Lisa and Jisoo model the best. Lisa has a long, lean frame and she's done different poses/facial expressions in other shoots before (especially in her recent Nylon China shoot). Same with Jisoo. The only reason why I dock a slight point from Jisoo is cause Jisoo has basically the same modeling format as most K-Idol female models like Irene, IU, Suzy, etc (hands on the cheeks + looking to the side, doe eyes, the works). It's not a bad thing, just done before. She still does it well. 
     If anyone is guilty of having "same face 24/7" it's absolutely Jennie, unfortunately. 
    Also, it's ironic because in the Adidas store in NYC, they actually don't have Jennie's cardboard cut out in the Superstar 2020 display. They have Rosé, Jisoo, Lisa, and even Jackson's, but Jennie's isn't in the window, so either they have her somewhere in the store seperately or it's just not there at all.

    The weird thing is...I really didn't like Cat Valentine's character. I couldn't stand the "dumb is adorable" shtick. I get Cat had sprinkles of insightfulness here and there, but overall, it was just annoying to me. Especially the speaking voice. It was like they told her to speak like a 4 year old. There have been other 'slow' characters (Chelsea from That's So Raven, Brittany from Glee, etc.) but they've never necessarily dumbed their voices down too. An example of a "dim" character made for kids done right is London Tipton imo. Tipton was not the brightest academically, but it didn't feel forced at all, and she was actually funny. Idk if it had to do with Ariana's acting cause I've never really seen her act besides that, or if it was the direction they gave her, but Cat was just...infantile to me, so it's odd whenever it's mixed with her current image of "sexiness." I think that might have been part of the reason why even physically she tries so hard to look like a typical insta baddie, because she sings songs about sex, but the natural sex appeal wasn't fully there for a lot of the GP in the past, unlike say, Rihanna/Bey/Nicki or even iconic white pop girls like Britney. When the latter talk about "surfing on that wood," or "the panties coming off," or "If you seek Amy," it's more believable. But with Ari there were a lot of people who liked Dangerous Woman for her voice but a lot of people (minus her fans) thought the video was like....meh. By the time Side to Side came out, she went full throttle with the tan and fillers, so idk. Maybe that's part of why she felt the need to go that route...which is still pretty lame if that really is somewhat the case. 
    Speaking of Cat, do you guys remember when Sam and Cat ended and Jennette McCurdy made a web series and one of the episodes shaded Ariana? Do you guys think there was some truth to it since Jennette knew her personally or?

     It is pretty wild to know that Chaeyoung couldn't even have her name associated with GD and she was just known as a "talented trainee," yet Jennie had a whole live performance, MV appearance, and supposedly a name drop from Jiyong. If Jennie's mother really does have ties to CJ Entertainment then that's a huge deal since they're a huge distribution company in Korea. CJ has international success on many fronts, especially in film and music, Parasite being its latest blow up. So...idk, whatever it is, Jennie definitely has connections that are probably deeper than the average spectator knows, honestly.

    I mean I could be wrong, but I don't think I've really heard many Korean idols in general talk deeply about the notion of racism towards foreign members. By number, I've personally heard more foreign members speak on it if anything (once they're given the chance). I know that during one of their concerts Jennie told the fans Lisa was "dealing with a lot of negativity, but she's been trying to stay positive." So...that may or may not have been a way of bringing it up without shining direct light on it? 
    In America, racism is handled much differently regardless. It's normal to be more vocal about it. It's entirely different in Korea in the first place and since idols are especially supposed to be all smiles, topics like that are not really first on the list to discuss. Even Pristin talking about menstruation was taboo, so racism is...yeah..
