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.
Not unpopular maybe but I really want Lee Soo Man to fuck off with his big useless ideas that don't translate into reality well at all but he keeps pushing them anyway. I love NCT but they're just cringe material for me lately because of the way SM are promoting them, they're really taking part in the "avengers of kpop" too... the only creative thing SM have done recently is sabotaging their own groups in all kinds of ways.
Stan twitter desperately needs to bully someone, they're happy they found reasons to hate on this girl, next week they'll find another target. Nothing unusual tbh. I wish they paid that much attention to the issues with YG and tons of other problematic stuff that's happening in kpop but of course they won't.
Why is it painfully obvious to a clueless person like me that promotions in America will get NCT little to no attention from the general public and little payoff in the future but it's not obvious to SM? They seemed to piss off their Korean fans, too. I don't understand what their strategy is. I'm just tired of seeing these videos lol, can they just focus on some of the other units already
I wish blinks spoke up more about how Rose, Jisoo and Lisa are treated, YG still gets away with favoriting Jennie and it's so unfair. I thought that after the scandal with her being lazy something would change but no, she's still getting pushed more than others. He could make another solo for her and people would still defend her.
Tbh it was disappointing enough that Johnny had to bring all his coworkers to his home and film something on the day when he reunited with his family. I hope it was his decision, too, and that he actually gets to spend time with them without the cameras.
I hate that the company basically encourages this behaviour, of course people are going to break the boundaries when they're invited to hang out by the bus and the company knew it. NCT must be exhausted by now and the tour has just started. Couldn't they find another way to meet the fans without turning it into a petting zoo with idols? As if meet&greet wasn't enough.
Many celebrities in any country get plastic surgery, it's not a big deal, but I don't get why so many fans get upset and defensive when somebody points out idols have had something done... as if they're personally offended by it. Too many people in Korea get ps, it's most likely your fave has had it too. It gets ridiculous sometimes when stans claim that an idol's appearance is all natural when it's obviously not, why defend them when it's not a big deal in the first place.
I wish they picked a few talented members for groups and focused on their training rather than put 7+ people when half of them will have no singing skills or stage presence. From all the huge groups I know I only feel like Seventeen is managed well (by themselves probably, not by Pledis lol), maybe Twice (I just don't know enough about them) but it's still distracting. The music also turns out to be messy because everybody needs a line and it's unlikely that all the idols' voices you gathered will sound harmonious together. Companies give all the idols their own image that they're supposed to stick to but when there's so many people, half of them get lost, especially when the company or the idol couldn't make up an interesting personality. The chemistry between the members is also affected by this, the competition is higher.
My favorite group is still NCT but it's such a mess, they're not doing that good and I'm afraid they'll fail and most members won't get the possibilities they deserve. I can't help but think that taking in foreign members is SM's way of saving money because they can be paid less. If SM ruins Wayv without promoting them properly, I'll be so disappointed (but not surprised).
She's all feminist now (lol ofc) even though I remember she said something anti-feministic long time ago and her whole image during Born To Die era was so cringe. People's views can change obviously but I don't believe her for a second. She gives off that vibe of a shallow cult follower (she was one before so it's not surprising). And I feel like her music is really overrated, even though I personally like it sometimes, the amount of praise she gets is just disproportionate.
At this point Kenna is trolling and putting American food on her instagram on purpose. I hate that there's so much interaction between her and this site now, people have been contacting her unnecessarily for a while now and she keeps reading here and making references, it's such a mess.
When she left US I thought that maybe she'll genuinely enjoy her time in Japan and become less negative but no, she must be so bored there already that she needs to go read PULL and start drama over nothing. People she spent her time with at home must be happy that she left lol, she probably has to snap at random strangers on the internet now instead of them.
