We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
The Korean language is the only thing making K-Pop any different from other boy or girl bands. If a K-Pop group doesn't sing in Korean, it's just another pop band. Even if they had ~*~visuals~*~ and ~*~them choreographies~*~.
As a snow white Nordic European, I must say I hate when people do this. We do have a culture, and I know people who had a legit culture shock while living in Denmark/Germany/the UK And visiting Poland felt like I had travelled to a continent. I don't get it why so many 20-somethings want to become K-Pop idols. Idol lives sound pretty sucky, considering they have their idol mask on 24/7 when outside of their home. Not to mention their harsh diets and overbooked schedules. Just why? I understand teenage dreams, but they are different.
... And this lady has the nerve of calling herself Venus' mother? I don't know what's her story or reason, but just browsing through the posts here, I don't even care. There's no excuse for some of her behaviour. I am shocked I ever thought Venus' was unreasonable to her mother. I take back every word I've said about their relationship. I hope Venus' never looks back at her mom, not unless she gets help. Margot is one toxic person right now.
I can't even imagine if that's the situation... Poor mother and baby. While I hope she wouldn't post anything of the baby anymore, I'd like to know how they both are. Jasmine wrote like things were okay. It might be a mom in denial of a premature baby (which I would completely understand), or it might be things are quite alright. My BF was premature by two months, he and her mom staid in the hospital for weeks. The poor lady still tears up when talking about her experience. Her fear and helplessness when looking her premature son in the incubator were excruciating.
If she's in delivery, I hope everything's good with her and her daughter. Having an early baby is terrifying. Not to mention all the risks and complications the mom or baby could have. Maybe she'll come to her senses when she gets to hold her daughter for the first time. That can happen when the reality of parenthood sets in. And I certainly hope she's smart enough to keep the baby pictures out of public social media accounts - there are some weird and malicious people out there, even in this forum. It would be best for her to stay in Canada. She's got family and support there, being a single mom can be lonely. Being in a (culturally) foreign country only adds up to that.
I'm happy for her! Her ring is really cute I wonder what's her wedding ring going to look like, or if they're going to have one, the engagement ring is so detailed. It will outshine every other ring lol.
The thing is, swelling and other side effects depend on a person. The people I know who got swelling and/or structural changes had a look pretty similar to Rachel's. They had some issues with getting braces to fit through their process. Plus I think it's a bit unfair to drag random people's photos to this forum... Though I don't know her personally, she just doesn't come off as a person who would get lip injections. And even if she did, the injections take some time to settle down. Injected lips may look awful for the first couple of weeks, especially for the first-timers. Then there's the possibility of getting reaction to the filler substances etc.
Yup. My workmate's whole upper chin seemed to change radically, but I think she had jaw fixing surgery done before getting her braces. From the video, I thought Rachel's operation changes her teeth/jaw quite a lot so the swelling/odd looking facial structure might be from the braces. To me, her mouth looked sore too maybe that's why I never even thought about injections. I hope the swelling goes down soon, whatever the reason is.
I thought her lips were off too, but lip injections didn't even cross my mind! Lips might get swollen and sore-looking as a side effect of braces (each time the dentist tightens them too), that happened to someone I know. It was a sore mess. I think she's pretty as she is. But it's easy to say while I'm not the one who might feel ugly or lacking.
People use terms like koreaboo, weeb and fetishizing widely wrong almost everywhere. People (especially other fans) do it for covering up their shady actions or fantasies. Nowadays, people see racism everywhere, whether it's or isn't there. My favourite statement is only white people can be racist. Or backward racism doesn't exist, which is not true. Everyone could be a racist, and there are racists in every colour and ethnicity. And it's equally bad.
In my opinion and experience, many Koreans who are serious with their partner are considering leaving Korea with their significant other. That's the attitude you need to have in a longterm relationship with a foreigner anywhere. Mixed relationships are always a lot of work. Cultures often clash when it comes down to ground rules, and your communication relies on most likely on your/their 2nd (or 3rd or whatever) language. It's not about the cutesy dates your Korean significant other takes you to. It's all about what happens after that, and more than often, it's not pretty. I took you here and there, so you should be doing as I say! I'm the man/woman, you have to do this and that... And tbh in any homogenous country, mixed couples are a bit off. "What's wrong with you, why aren't you enough for a local girl/boy..."
I'm not shielding her nor neglecting Rosie's stress, but I think you're overlooking the situation. And speculating quite a bit - they haven't had a baby yet, so we can't say what's going to happen. Predicting the absolute worst isn't fair. Dog's concept of time is indeed very different. If they're at home with people and smells they know, often they're pretty happy and stressfree. Dog's get excited when their owners get back, yes, but it's not because they missed them. Taylor's looking for options to cargo travelling. They might be or might not be some, but this's the reality of international families - sometimes you need to prioritise. Just think of the backslash if Taylor and EBS decided to give Rosie away. Whatever they did, someone would judge so hard chanting "you should have known your life better and have had a plan Z!" Things and stuff change in life. Often unpredictably.
I know quite a bunch of teenagers who're obsessed watching baby vlogs, to me it's cute I'm childfree by choice and +25yo, but I know I'll be watching Taylor's baby videos too. Tbh I like how famous people who're considered fresh and young have babies and are openly excited about it. Too often we're told as females our life will be practically over after the childbirth and we will be moms, nothing more or less, and we're to be happy about it. (Obviously, I don't know about every country or community in this world, but at least in these 4 I've been living in, this has been the sad case).
Does anyone here know any apps or websites where I could sharpen my Korean skills? Theoretically and according to exams, my level is intermediate. But that's because of my passive language skills, understanding and reading. I need to get active. Language apps are good for nothing if you're not into weird online-hunter boys. Which I'm not.
