    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.
    • Reputation Has Increased!   07/06/20

      Hello. You have been asking for it and it is finally here. We have increased the number of reputation given in a day from 25 to 50. We will see how well 50 works out and if that is enough. Please continue to provide feedback and we will reevaluate as needed. This change has been added to the site changes thread located here. Happy repping. Thank you.

    But, eye lifts have always been a type of surgery in western culture. Most people use it to get rid of heavy eyes/brighten them up. It has nothing to do with making fun of asians...

    I saw a lot of people ranting about Bella Hadid for starting the fox eye trend (even though she didn't...) and stealing from Asian culture when her eyes look like the ones that OP posted. Not even... I haven't seen many girls get that surgery to "try to look asian" because they want to look more "exotic" instead. I understand your point but from my side of the internet, I haven't really seen many examples of your concerns. 

    In general, I hate the whole "people bullied me and now it's trendy1!1!" snowflake argument.

    A little late but Jisoo is looking so hot this era! She really is a baddie. Her outfit for this stage was probably the best out of the whole comeback since I don't think we're going be getting new looks (referring to the latest post). Though it isn't much, this concept is really displaying Jisoo and Rosé's true dynamic and potential in terms of image. A lot of people assume that Jenlisa emulates Blackpink's "black side" because of the YG vibe and how their fashion is so westernised but I think Chaesoo is proving to be more fierce. I still agree that Jisoo doesn't fit the group's concept at all, she shined during Forever Young and Don't Know What To Do promotions, but she is definitely slaying as a visual. Oh, how the tables have turned. I'm excited about the future.

    Rosé and Lisa would be my ideal subunit (Didn’t they do a cover stage together?) but Jenlisa would be a more obvious choice. I feel like YG was hinting at something with their rap verse in KTL but at this point, no duo in Blackpink has the bond and appeal for one. I also don’t think it would work since there are only 4 members. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think only big groups do subunits.

    Rosé was the only member that was giving me energy in that performance. Lisa is a given because of her dance image but I feel like even then, she was still lacking something. Jennie seemed to care more about her blonde hairpieces looking good on camera than the choreography and for the majority of the song, Jisoo's movements didn't look flattering at all. If any member deserves for the choreography to be catered to them, it's Jisoo. She always gets the short end of the stick. I think she should really brush up on her dancing skills but maybe she doesn't want to since it's obviously going to be an actress after the group disbands. 
    I don't understand how an artist could possibly get sick of performing a song during their debut performance of it. HYLT just came out and the girls' are dancing like it's been years, and I highly doubt it's because of "non-stop" practice. I think the girls' are just sick and tired of each other, to be honest, and it's showing on stage.
    Rosé is going to make an amazing soloist. That's all I'm really taking from this comeback. She has so much poise to her and is very professional. If anybody got "bruises" from that dance break, it was her. We have to stan.

    That was such a weird performance. I know I sound harsh but it's true. The choreography is all over the place, the camerawork definitely hides it but not that much and I already know it's going to look sloppier than KTL as time goes on. I don't even think dance covers are going to save it. It's not that catchy. I'm glad that they are trying to do something a little challenging but it's just not in their element. I love Jennie's hair. The pink does look better than the blonde but that's about it.

    So true. If all of their comebacks were like this then she would've been completely in the background. Not even her hair made her stand out to me.

    Okay. I just listened to it and my point still stands. It's catchy but it's more bland and empty than Kill This Love. It definitely fits the "western vibe." It reminds me of 7 rings. Repetitive with only one catchphrase to it. The choreography was just awkward, It'll be interesting to see it as a live performance. I liked the dance break, I guess but Kill This Love's one had more dynamic and so did D4. The visuals were nice but that's a given at this point. It was just a whole bunch of nothing and it felt short.

    I suppose this is part of the choreography. 
    Edit: The dance break?

    It sounds so tragic, unfinished and cringy. Worse than Kill This Love. But, of course, blinks are going to praise it because "oMg a diss track, we love unbothered queens1!1!1" It sounds like a mess at the end with the "Blackpink" thrown in and Lisa's "look at you now look at me" lyric is just so repetitive in such a bad way. 
    If this is what the pre-release single sounds like then I can't imagine the album. A mess.

    I always thought the girls' older lyrics were so sexualised for no good reason. Jennie's rap in Whistle is something else. Like who are these guys that are drooling over Jennie? Boombayah is literally their debut and the only time the public has seen her was when she was a teen. I agree that pop songs don't have to be deep and meaningful but they do have to be cohesive, and Blackpink's songs are not. 
    I'm starting to think that maybe the girls' could actually be better at songwriting because the bar is so low with Teddy.

    Disappointed but not surprised. I knew those scenes looked familiar. Is YG trying to make a fool out of them for the very last time? Because I don’t know what company would create a rip off of a failed comeback and basically rerelease it. Even though it’s tied to a full album, it’s not going to do them any justice. 
    They had the chance to properly capitalise off of a popular aesthetic right now (e-girl) and actually be “the revolution” in kpop but instead, YG is just milking D4’s hype and recycling KTL because that’s the furthest they will ever stray from the “rich girl” vibe. smh
    I swear if the choreography has some sort of hand gun movement, I’m going to flip. 

    YG is ignorant and dumb to be doing cultural appropriation during a BLM and POC movement. Though it’s still trash, for Lisa’s sake, I hope that’s the only thing they appropriated because Twitter will not be pretty.  If people rightfully call them out, blinks better be SILENT.

    Omg... This poster is so bad. I don't like the outfits at all, not even Jennie's and I think Lisa looks out of place this time around. Their poses make them look like they were photoshopped together and I don't know why Jisoo is kneeling on the ground. It would've looked better if they were all standing. Someone said these outfits look like something Hannah Montana would wear and I agree but they also look like outdated kpop. Maybe like 2ne1? 
    I love Jennie's hair but this isn't what I expected outfit wise comparing it to KTL and D4 which had more cohesive teasers. This comeback is a mess.

    Yeah, the girls' don't have the range for that and it would honestly be laughable considering their whole career revolves around misogyny and them only being known for their looks. D4 was meant to be a "feminist" track but it just turned into "look how much money I have, I'm better than you."  I honestly don't know what the song is going to be like because the teasers have been all over the place but I don't think the song will be much different to KTL/D4. That's usually how it goes.
    I don't get Jennie's image, to be honest. She's meant to be a vintage, Chanel fashionista but they are giving her all the modern trends. I think that blonde/black hairstyle washes her out (I don't think she suits blonde as much as her stans like to think) and I feel like those money pieces/bangs just emphasis how round her cheeks are. If they wanted someone to be an e-girl for this comeback, it should've been Lisa. She suits western trends.

    Those moving teasers were so cringy. Lisa's and Rosé's teasers were okay. At least they played with the camera. But, Jisoo's teaser was laughable. No wonder her name has been trending on Twitter lately. I don't really have an opinion about Jennie's because her posing is always the same anyway.  I been hoping for them to change their aesthetic since KTL but tbh, I really don't think the girls have the duality for it. As much as blinks' like to think otherwise. These teasers are the definition of "I'm not like the other girls."
