yes PLEASE!! I watched Produce 101 s1, and only rly kept up with the ranking for s2. I love fromis_9, but their formation seems so shady rn. I’m the way I see it, there are three possible scenarios 1. Trainees didn’t know(not even the ones that ended up being chosen) and so the only guilty parties are those involved in production OR 2. Trainees didn’t know , except for those that would be chosen. This would suck because then they are rly part of the problem and the other trainees were rly hired as accessories . (I believe this was confirmed for Idol School) OR 3. Everyone knew, but trainees who knew they wouldn’t get chosen still went on with the promise of exposure. Some people are saying to release the original lineup /what would have been the winners if it wasn’t rigged. I’m not sure if I 100% agree because it’s already done and those kids would probably feel so much worse. Do I think they should reveal the names of kids who wouldn’t have made it without rigging? Only if they knew what they were doing(even then idk how to feel)
SuperM just seems like another nct unit tbh , the music and the fits all scream nct to me. But also I’m pretty annoyed at them promoting by grouping the individual groups’ achievements together as if that group achieved it themselves (ex “14 million sales”......12 million of those being exo). however, I’m still gonna try getting tickets for their concert 😩
Did you guys read the HollyWood Reporter article on BTS? It is a MESS. Everyone(the journalist, bts and bighit) involved look like shallow assholes. The reporter mentioned Jonghyun’s suicide (to show how Evil the industry is...how original) and is basically just comes across rly orientalist. BTS just seemed so shallow with the “we were invited to Saudi Arabia” and how they don’t talk about any big issues . BH because BTS was basically branded for that, but they still can’t speak about these issues . The article left a bad taste in my mouth .
