    I don't get why this is a thing. You can't force someone to speak up about incidents in other countries. I understand we live in a globalized world where we can access all sorts of info but forcing someone to speak up about a topic they don't fully understand or don't care about is ridiculous. That's not how you end racism, prejudice or any type of negativity. smh

    I agree. When I compare rent in Seoul to let's say Vancouver, Canada living in Korea overall is much cheaper for the average person with a decent job. Housing maybe expensive in Seoul but at least food and other expenses are somewhat cheap meaning if you budget well and save your money properly living in Seoul shouldn't be that big of a hassle.
    If Meghan was living in Vancouver I would understand her pain, with min. wage being at 11.27 CAD, average rental prices ranging from 1,300~2,090 CAD and food being quite expensive it would be a struggle but it seems in her case she just isn't managing her money very well.

    It's just so weird that people have finally "discovered" the existence of a race that has been around for centuries. Maybe it's cuz I've grown up with many Asians, mostly EA, SEA and SA, in my community and school environment but I don't understand the fascination with them. I mean Asian culture is quite fascinating tbh since the culture of the various countries are amazing but the way some people think you can find or collect Asians as if they're limited edition toys is creepy  Then again this isn't the first time I've seen this type of thing. black boys and white boys used to be all the rave at one point, so it seems some people just don't know how to treat others like people

    Joey's fans nitpicking on pals top 5, or whatever the number, anime list is like how some foreign fans judge Japanese fans on what they consider the top anime of the year. Yes I get it, it can be somewhat disappointing that Japanese anime fans don't like the same anime as you, the western fan, does but do you need to correct their top picks or act like an ass? No. Like @Sodapop said it's just a list based on someones opinion there is absolutely no need to get so pressed over the fact that other people either in the same country or abroad have different taste in anime. These people are the reason why I avoid the anime community at times because I start to question  the if certain people who watch anime have lives and do outside things that don't involve Japan or anime?

    I'm really tired of some black people making statements that come off as reaching and don't want to admit that they are reaching to some extent. For example this person I follow on instagram has claimed that anyone who whitens their skin for whatever reason is promoting anti-blackness. How is skin whitening promoting anti-blackness if the person who is whitening their skin hasn't mentioned the black community? I could see an argument towards skin whitening and colourism but not anti-blackness because there needs to be hard evidence for you to come to that conclusion. Whitening products can also be used to reduce hyper pigmentation so I don't see any direct anti-blackness when using whitening products on yourself espcically if your not black.
    P.S I have no idea if that made sense, sorry

    Joan is the type of person who shouldn't give skincare advice because her own routine is so half asses. I seem to have the same skin conditions as her, oily skin with acne, and I happen to use similar products however I've seen an improvement to my skin problems. So she's doing something wrong, it's most likely her diet and lack of consistency when dealing with her skin problems. Also if something isn't working for you in terms of your skin you should go see a dermatologist they specialize in skincare; after all Korean skincare and any other type of skincare regimen is a lot like over the counter medication it may or may not work.
    Joan needs to pay attention to what she says in terms of skincare since she's no certified aesthetician or dermatologist and the wrong info could be potentially damaging to her followers who listen to her.

    I loved the Bratz babies and had a few but never did I think I'd see one irl. Erika needs to stop and get off instagram for awhile. She needs it

  8. Rennie added a post in a topic Unpopular Harry Potter Opinions   

    This isn't really an unpopular opinion since I don't have enough information on this character but I read that Rose Weasley was not that great of a character in the cursed child since she portrays all the bad traits of Ron and Hermione.
    Does anyone have an opinion on her since I'm curious to find out but do not want to read the book due to my loss of interest in the HP series after the 7th book.

    Just to clarify Kenniejd based on what she has said on her YouTube channel has been able to visit Korea more than once thanks to various summer exchange programs at different universities in Korea. She also seems to be in Korea atm.
    She could be lying about the multiple exchanges but idk

    I can't remember 100% since it's been years since I've read the Harry Potter series but I always found it weird how Harry and Ron became friends. I understand Draco was a utter brat and what not but from Harry's explanation on why he refused Draco's hand at friendship shouldn't he have done the same for Ron? I mean I find it strange that making fun of someone's name wasn't a big deal to Harry even though he said that he hated bullies and anyone who reminded him of his cousin. Didn't Dudley make fun of Harry's last name at one point? 
    I also agree with Hermione and Annabeth from PJO follow this trope of strong females occasionally coming off as bossy know it all's and while I do understand we need more female characters who can pull they're own weight that doesn't really mean they need to come off as bossy because it just creates another set of stereotypes against women imo.

  11. Rennie added a post in a topic Instagram Kpop spam accounts   

    For the first account, sorry I forgot she went private, she pretty much got dragged because she was saying sexual things about idols to fulfill her and her followers weird fantasies as well as attacking anyone who she thought was disrespecting Korean culture even though they might have not done anything.
    The second account went private after the "party" phase got out of hand. She had initially participated in dragging kboo accounts but it got out of control when fans started dragging idols for fake reasons like owing child support.
    Neither of them are Korean or Asian

    Instagram Kpop spam accounts
    I don't have any links atm since there are too many accounts on Instagram that fall under the category of kpop spam/ appreciation but I'd just like to what some of you think about these accounts. At lot of these accounts are run by young teens to stan either one or multiple kpop groups and mostly consist of memes, kpop related questions and the occasional gross roleplay involving a kpop star/ group. Some of these accounts have gone after problematic kboos kmusicandblackwomen, katieaegi, Kellen but they have also gone after innocent kpop fans for no reason. 
    I follow some of these accounts myself for pure entertainment purposes but I'm starting to find some of these pages cringey and lowkey problematic. 
    Here's an idea of what I'm talking about:
    https://www.instagram.com/negroavocado/
    https://www.instagram.com/jblovesmybjs/
    https://www.instagram.com/m__kpop_m/
    I don't necessarily consider these accounts problematic and I'm not hating them but I know, at least the first account, has received complaints due to their behaviour

    Ngl I get what Jackson did but what has Zico done of late?? I remember all his past scandals but I don't get why they're dragging him. I checked insta for receipts but most people aren't sure what is going on.

    Not only that these people who went after Kellen, are now after kmusic with supposed tea, their after Jackson Wang, Katiaegi, Zico(?). They seem to be like unhappy/somewhat petty people who are looking for ways to have certain Kpop idols/kpop fans instagrams cancelled for various issues but they have no proof. They seem more like trolls to me.
