    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    They seem so out of touch with their racial identity. It's a shame though, they're really pretty girls. I don't really believe in DNA tests and their accuracy, But their east asian percentage must have been from a distant ancestor in any case. I used to spend time avoiding the sun because my relatives were obsessed with white skin. Beauty products, hats, umbrellas, long sleeve shirts, you name it. But the twins suit their natural melanin so well~ It's a pity how obsessed they are with brightening.

    Her vibe and personality would have definitely matched with ITZY. I still wonder why she decided to leave JYP, since JYP was planning on debuting her soon with ITZY anyways. Perhaps Somi just lost interest in being in a gg because she wanted more freedom towards her being as a solo artist?

    Apart from Jasmine... I just don't understand how some people go to Korea to find Korean husbands, or in Japan to find Japanese husbands/wives (This applies to girls going to China as well to do the same thing), and getting knocked up to have their desired half-baby. It's just so weird to me after witnessing some koreaboos doing illegal visa runs to marrying someone over there quickly..

    A big argument with family yesterday night !!!! Exams are this month on the 24th, then on-going with tutoring sessions. Studying without any rest and dealing with personal family issues. Nowadays I lack control but I find control in my ed. It's so wrong, yet it feels so right to control something.

    Isn't K-pop more stricter than western companys in the aspect of managing their idols? I guess it's also apart of culture differences. Dating and as far as hooking up culture is widely accepted in the west. Western artists even sleep with their fans backstage while Korean idols are tied with their managers 24/7 even Taehyung from BTS once said he couldn't even outside alone without permission. 
    Asian fans, more so Korean fans are very sensitive over Idol's dating. Harsh fact, but it's true. Fans see themselves already in a relationship with their idols and the company that manages BTS are aware of that. So why would BTS, a world wide sensation right now, meet up with a bunch of attention whores when they know it will ruin them? 
    I believe it's transparent that the twins are just both new K-pop fans that have no understanding of the cultural difference between Asian pop and Western pop. They think that it's easy to get to them, but BTS' management aren't going to just let them mindlessly have groupies or multiple foreign girlfriends.  To be honest, I'm not a BTS fan so I don't know them that well. But they seem very uninterested in wasting their time with foreign groupies.. especially Taehyung and Jungkook who they mentioned.

    By the way, how old are both Sonia and Celia?  I would guess they would be around later mid twenties?
    You must place priorities before anything else.  Expensive K-pop concerts, or clothing items that are out of style and branded items aren't priorities but for pleasure for now. It's ironic though, Begging people for money online  is somehow a re-occurring theme for them both. They spend whatever money was given to them for wasteful things. But when they need financial fundings for necessary living essentials they just don't have any left

    It's sad that whenever I do watch her it's as if I see her expiration date approaching. YouTubers, or other content creators with huge popularity and fandoms tend to fade out pretty quickly. Whenever I do see Gabbie I tend to feel like her content is easily predictable. nothing out of the ordinary.

    I'm actually shocked to only know about this today. She posted a public apology on LINE explaining everything to which doesn't summarize the dirt that was gathered up on her.

    Honestly I do not get how her mother "left" her and that she stays with her dad and grandmother, why is she so insistent on clinging onto her "Asian side" from her mother? 
    if I had a parent that abandoned me, I would like nothing more than to never associate my other side as my own.

    actually, I do remember her briefly dating someone (in one of her tagged photos she deleted), after she broke up with her ex. In the highlight stories of her bf (not sure if they broke up), showed her dancing with a mask and he captioned it something like "my girlfriend dancing with a mask" or smthng like that

    while going through this thread I can kind of understand why a lot of them are pretending to be race they aren't.  I used to be a heavy one direction fan and have always obsessed about Europe and wanting to be part of that. I was desperate to find any European ancestry but of course, being full Asian I had none. I was envious over fans who were part British so I tried to emulate that. It wasn't to the point I tried making people believe I had any european ancestry but I definitely felt very left out. 
    You could try to convince yourself by saying you're Asian even though you aren't, it will just make you more delusional. I can't see anything other than the desperation of wanting to fit into Asian lifestyle/culture so badly. 
    you don't have to be Chinese/Japanese/Korean or SEA to appreciate or learn about asia's cultural views and values. almost anyone is allowed to be interested in culture. because it is culture. you are allowed to have interest in a culture you want to understand. You don't have to act that you're Asian in order to like Asian stuff.

  13. boney added a post in a topic Mimei and Duncan (PDR-san)   

    the whole situation with her finances is sad, really. I used to be an amid watcher of both mimei and duncan back at their old apartment where everything was so messy due to their "hobbyist" lifestyles  I thought them moving would be an new oppurtunity to practice minimalism (as Japanese tend to have that mindset keeping things clean and arranged). 
    with mimei's obsessive spendings (this with Duncan too), and complaining abt how she doesn't have money, why say 100usd is not a lot when it contributes to vital needs since it's costly living in Tokyo? 100usd is more than enough.

  14. boney added a post in a topic General Koreaboo Thread   

    I generally don't understand why he has to get plastic surgery into looking more Asian... While he said he just wanted to look like Jimin, it's a little unfortunate because he looks disproportionate and disfigured (and even more so, if he decides to get even more procedures in the future). It's obvious that his european features are most obvious at first glance: jaw line, facial structure, and the nose bridge, eyes, is purely white european. - I still think he should had surgical procedures to enhance his european features more rather of trying to look as another race..
