THIS Serena was so unlikable it was almost making me itch when I watched. Every GG episode would literally just be Serena getting to a crisis (that she often brought on herself by being a shitty person), Blaire trying to reason with her, Serena saying "I can't talk about this. I have to go." then the crisis gets worse, and so on. She kept making the same mistakes after a while so the plot became stale so fast. Dan was never a "good guy" to me. He was lowkey always self-righteous imo. I also thought Jenny was the most realistic teenager, even though she annoyed me too at times. I can see why the show was popular. I liked it too. But it got so bad and the abrupt ending was complete garbage. I was beyond disappointed.
This isn't against your opinion, I just find it hilarious that I actually don't want to see a live action Little Mermaid cause I'm kind of terrified of the thought. A live action giant Ursula getting stabbed by a ship and electrocuted to death sounds traumatizing to me lmao.
The fact that she actually tagged dumbfoundead though. Lowkey embarrassing. The constant need of validation from Korean men. Highkey embarrassing.
Also, slightly off topic, but coming from a foreign woman who has also experienced Korean night life, some of those dudes are straight up disrespectful. I won't even get into some of the shady shit I saw in, yeah you guessed it, NB2. I got lucky that there were...a small handful..and by handful I mean...3 guys, that were okay. But the rest of the ones I encountered would either follow me, grab me, or not take no for an answer and I needed an SOS from my friends. Making out with guys in a club and enjoying yourself isn't inherently bad, but lowkey giving a pass to a sketchy guy because he "looks like [insert idol name here]" is what pisses me off about Korean club storytimes.
-I have an unsettling feeling that YG Ent. is not the only company doing wild shit behind closed doors, they're just the ones in the spotlight at the moment and other companies very well may be next. -Jay Park has never been a good rapper to me. The guy can sing though. -Honestly, in a perfect world, idols having braids wouldn't bother me, what gets me is the fact that the braids usually comes mockery or ignorance. -I like Amber, but after finding out who some of her friends are little by little, I'm starting to wonder if she really is too nice to see the bad in others or is she lowkey as problematic as they are when no one's around. Spoiler for a general question below
If I'm not mistaking, I think that's where the term originated actually.
-I value education, but I can't stand judgemental pricks who look down on people who haven't graduated college. -Rick and Morty fans are ANNOYING AS SHIT. This is coming from someone who likes the show. -Can "this will be our last hoorah in high school" type movies just...end. -Disney remakes also need to end.
I get companies want "prettier" idols nowadays but the standard is so cookie-cutter and boring that very few idols stand out to me as unique. I'm not talking handsome vs not handsome or beautiful as opposed to not, just distinguishable period. I could be tripping but I feel like in the idol world it used to be all about notable visuals even for marketing like, "GaIn's small eyes" or "Heechul's overbite" and following visual trends was more for the ulzzang world (hence why past ulzzangs looked so similar and it made more sense that they were the ones looking doll-like cause that was their gig), but now it's kind of shifted...and now the idols are starting to ride the same trend wave? Don't get me wrong, I see a sprinkle of it here and there, but for the most part it feels like it's fading.
I don't like toying with this idea either, but I'm actually not sure if they will take out Seungri. The explanation given definitely makes sense but the only thing that makes me apprehensive is how huge he is. This is an idol that's been iconic for a long time. Even if it was set up as something else, as soon as there's a snag in that set up, people will be more inclined to notice and it would ensue a whole new whirlwind of problems and potential witch hunts. Nonetheless, the man deserves jail time. Period. Also, now that it's come out that PSY is allegedly involved, what's gonna happen to the artists under Pnation?
Damn, that's what I was afraid of. Were you able to see the artists up close at all or could VIP only stay in that bar area. I'd feel jipped if I paid that much just to see them on a screen. I'd rather be in the crowd.
It's a decent lineup but is the VIP even worth it though? It's almost $300 and the main perks you get are a VIP bathroom and a "designated viewing area". Yeah, you get merch too, but like...for $300, this area better be close to the stage and not off in some room with a flatscreen and a bar somewhere. What do you guys think?
EXACTLY. Like, it's either all okay or not okay, but either way even if you're pointing out the obvious weight drop of an idol or botched surgery, why go so far to call them "disgusting" or any other harsh critique. Is it necessary to go that low? Like I said, I even have to check myself sometimes and call myself out if needed, cause I can't hate on netizens for making horrid comments about idols if I'm on a forum doing the same thing. At this point we've all seen the damaging choices idols have made due to online bashing (and other things I'm sure), so I'm not gonna add onto that under the guise of "well it's my opinion." Speaking purely for myself, I'm not gonna make that a cop out line for being an ass. I won't be koombayah, but if an idol ain't my type, I'm gonna just say that and keep it moving. Anyway-- Got 7's newer music > Got 7's debut songs. YG was always shady. He used to be able to kinda cover it with his groups' success, and he thought he could do the same with Blackpink...but those are very thin coat tails.
(Now that it's Pride month) I have a hard time believing when Kpop groups claim to support the LGBT+ community. Maybe some individual members genuinely do sure, but I'm also sure there are some with opposing views, so when a group makes a huge display or have references in songs, or have it as a concept, yes, I DO get skeptical that it's just a marketing ploy. I don't see the hype with Momo's dance video for Fancy. Every time I hear she "snapped" I'm expecting something beast mode. I'm talking JoJo Gomez status or Aliyah Janelle, but I just see the same old formula so I don't get it. Whether a group has broken into western media or not doesn't determine that group's success. I said what I said. There's still a way to be respectful when not feeling an idol's appearance. I personally think straight up degrading someone ain't necessary to get the point across. (I even have to check myself sometimes) I wish I was more excited for Lee Hi's comeback, but idk what to make of it. I'll give it another look.
It doesn't exactly help that idol culture praises pale skin over tan skin, and even if the twins don't necessarily look "asian" enough in their photos, they'd still rather look as "non-ethnic" as possible due to the stigma about koreans preferring white foreigners. It's all pretty messed up and I used to be caught up in it too, but in the end, I've learned that I'd just rather work on being a decent human being above all things. The problem with the twins is that even without the photoshop, they're liars and just aren't even redeemable personality wise, so no matter how pretty they look, pale or tan, they're cock-blocking themselves by being ugly inside.
I wonder that too, tbh. Whatever Nathan's sexuality is is his business, but like...they've been together for years and you mean to tell me J* having money/fame, therefore power has absolutely NOTHING to do with their dynamic? Especially after Jeffree's tweets about straight men. It all seems fishy to me. I think in the Shane documentary it was said Nathan didn't know who Jeffree was, but I lowkey don't believe it. Even if he didn't, he came to find out real quick, so idk. Maybe it really is sunshine and rainbows like Jeffree claims but as manipulative as he is..I still side-eye him.
