    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

     This will probably get hella downvotes cause twitter is flaming him badly but I also didn't think he was the type to actively do that...so I'm curious as to how tight those contracts are when it comes to being styled since he isn't the first male idol to be put in cornrows.

    That's the thing, apparently one of the choreographers is Kyle Hanagami and it just makes me go...huh?? How? You mean to tell me the other three world class choreographers along with him came up with that?? It really doesn't add up. 
     
     
     
    Also, mini rant approaching: Yes nostalgia can play a part in liking something, but I think that the biggest reason why I personally prefer 2nd generation K-POP is because the 3rd seems so oversaturated. It's nothing against the groups obviously, it's just K-Pop in general. I feel like if the 3rd gen had way less groups debuting every 2 seconds then I'd probably like it more. It's one thing to have more to choose from cause the older groups had to move on at some point, but I feel a little overwhelmed, and I feel like I don't have time to fully enjoy one group or get excited for a new group to come out because there are so many. Before, groups used to be able to all go on stage for a special, or have CF collabs or go on variety shows together, and now I don't see that happening as much. Even if it was staged, it just seemed like back then there was still a comradery despite the competitive nature of charting and award winning and record breaking. With so many more groups and social media being way more prevalent, it feels like the comradery is dwindling while the competition is rising therefore less enjoyable to me overall. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate 3rd gen, and I don't think 2nd gen is perfect (I could definitely rant about the flaws of 2nd gen). BOTH have pros and cons, so I just find it odd when people shame for liking one over the other, try to disrespect the groups that came before, etc. That's when it gets unecessary imo.
    TL;DR Having either preference is cool, everyone has their tastes and dislikes, but seeing hatred is when I get annoyed.

    About Teddy, and this might be harsh to say, but I'm speculating that he's not as passionate about making quality music for BP as much as he was for 2NE1 or other artists he's worked with. My biggest reason being: consistency. It's a clear hit or miss with BP, but in the past, Teddy's put out better work more often than not. With BP, it feels like he's rushed to scrap something together for the sake of a comeback as opposed to before when he used to give insight on how he'd choose which voice fit for each part and why. Idk, something just feels off.

    -I already anticipated Kill This Love would be a disappointment for me tbh. 
    -I think that saying EITHER generation is more talented than the other is a bit much. 
    -I'm kind of over the aesthetic of most K-POP videos in general. I'm glad they don't have to stick to the early 2000s box sets but some of these graphics and effects are way overdone.  
    -I wish Bom's comeback track had the chorus one last time at the end to showcase more adlibs but I understand that her voice may not be entirely what it used to be.

    This seems like it would make sense, but Grapevine is also a love song about him wanting to be with the girl despite what she may have heard about him, so why would he ghost her after allegedly telling her (if it is about her) through lyrics he wants to spend more time with her? Then again, maybe I'm diving too deep idk lmao.

    I am laughing if any koreaboo forgot that Koreans from America and Europe exist and got their hopes up way too fast. 
    Who knows, maybe SM will surprise us, but I SINCERELY doubt it. This is SM we are talking about. They wouldn't risk it all like that after building their shining reputation for talent.

    Sorry, another unpopular Everglow opinion (i can't add this to my last one as an edit for some reason)
    I feel like the Bon Bon Chocolat video was such a missed opportunity for a potential motorcross concept instead of just aesthetic shots with motorcycles. I could be asking for too much considering Idk this company's budget, but I feel like some debuts nowadays are getting so generic with their MVs so I'm just ITCHING for anything else. Like, I really fuck with the song and I'm sure these girls are trying their best, but can directors/managers/stylists, whoever, make the most out of their potential please. Like, one of the members is flexible as hell. Couldn't they have used that in some way to stand out? I found the group way more appealing in the 1million video than the actual MV, and that's just shot in a dance studio. Even with other GGs like, I feel like some companies are watering them down to just dolls for the camera instead of having them show something more than that.

    Bon Bon Chocolat is catchy as hell but Everglow looked so awkward in the MV to me? Maybe they aren't comfortable in front of the camera yet, but I'm used to "girl crush" groups serving face and attitude and it seemed like they were directed to stay pretty for the camera above having personality imo.

    Doing laundry (on a Sunday with nothing else to do) is relaxing.

    I'm tired of people commenting on Park Bom's face. We get it, she's a "Gangnam unnie," but she's literally had work done for so long and harsh comments on her face lead her to that point in the first place. Fan or not it's like getting old to me regardless, especially when almost every idol has had work done, even if their changes were not as drastic.

    Someone said something similar before, but Mukbang ASMR videos are literally revolting to me and I don't understand why they're popular. Hearing someone smacking their food or seeing strings of mayo goo closeup in people's mouths makes me want to vomit. 
    I would hate to live in a Mansion tbh. It just seems excessive. 
    I can't stand when the natural hair community tries to force me to love my hair. I don't hate my hair, but yes, sometimes when I'm up at 4AM doing a twist out or detangling, yeah, I get a little frustrated and I feel like that's completely normal. Learning what works for your hair is part of YOUR journey. 
    Procrastination is fucking terrible but I work better under pressure. 
    Pringles chips taste like flavored cardboard to me. I don't get the hype.
    Going to the club sucks 80-90 percent of the time (I could be going to bad clubs or just getting old). I prefer board games/poker with friends at home.

    Chen is getting a solo soon actually I think.
    Also, I forgot who mentioned it, but I also thought Jennie's solo was underwhelming and yeah, sure, she may have looked more vibrant on stage, but...that may or may not have been because she got the spotlight..? I mean, even when Beyonce went solo, yes she performed her ass off...but she did just the same when she was in a group, not the other way around (I don't even stan Beyonce, but I can't deny her work ethic). Or even a closer example would be CL. CL would perform her tail off in 2NE1 AND while solo. I'm not trying to be harsh on Jennie or lift other artists up to put her down, but I just don't see the point in giving her a pass for performing "better" while solo. I personally found "Twit" by Hwasa to be a better solo song or "Noir" and I wish I was as impressed with "Solo" since Jennie gets so much hype.
    I really liked Bom's comeback single, but I feel like I could tell that she can't annunciate her words like she used to and they tried to fix it in production. Her diction sounded off, but maybe it was just me?
    I adore Chungha but babygirl cannot twerk and I don't know why variety shows kept telling her to. She seemed to have fun though. 
     As much as I want Amber to make it big, idk if she will ever be as big as she was in her prime f(x) days.
    Jackson's raspy rapping voice seems SO forced and I don't like the sound of it at all. 
    To the person who mentioned Jay Park being better with RnB, ABSOLUTELY. Tbh, I miss "Joah" era Jay Park. I thought he was adorable then and truly gave his heart to that song, plus his high notes in the end put me in my feelings. After that, idk, he kinda fell off for me. 
    I actually can't stand looking at old kpop vids sometimes because I love it at first but then it makes really sad. 
     
     
     
     
    The scandal regarding Seungri makes me feel sick and I really hope the victims find peace. Not an unpopular opinion (I would hope), but I feel like it needs to be said.

    Honestly I'm just hoping Travis isn't as bad as Tristan in the sense that he may cheat on Kylie despite having a child with her (I mean he already allegedly said Kendall had more personality despite Kylie being better in bed). I don't like Kylie, but if anything, I wouldn't want Stormi to have to have an upbringing like that.  
    And...I slightly disagree, I think given what everyone knows about Kardashians/Jenners with their scandals, Travis must be in the sunken place at least a LITTLE bit to be with one. Might not be as bad as Kanye, but still.

    I know this is going a little off topic from the Khloe ordeal but since this is the Kylie thread...did Travis actually cheat on her this time? I rememer last time that rumor came about it was a haux "social experiment" type thing, but if it did happen this time then that would be disappointing for the child.
