    It wasn't just armys, high fashion twt was on his case ( as well as a bunch of other celebrities who can't dress) for showing up to the met gala in an ill-fitting suit and a pair of dirty vans lol, it's pretty standard behaviour during met gala time so I don't get why everyone tried to make it a kpop fanwar again. 
    That being said I really hope that no kpop group goes to the met because I just know they're going to play it too safe and completely ignore the theme and get dragged. People were campaigning for BTS to attend when those men haven't served a collectively good look since Wings Era. The only kpop celebs I can see at least attempting to follow the theme and look good are CL( if she had the money), Gdragon, and Taemin. The rest of them will just show in basic tuxes and dresses lol

    I absolutely hate the editing on Korean variety shows. The weird camera zoom ins, the constant panning between everyone's faces, and worst of all the thing they do whenever someone does something for 2 seconds and they play it over at least 3 times but with the overexagerrated reactions of the hosts. I never watch any of my groups on these shows because of it lol

    I wasn't trying to imply that Black armys and kpop fans don't get racist shit from everyone else, it happens in nearly every fandomspace we enter. That's why it's not just a kpop fandom issue. That's also part of the reason this group of armys managed to let this whole 'race war' going for nearly a year lmao,it was believable. But there really was a bunch of black army gcs on twt that sent themselves racist anons and kept trying to get articles written, there was an expose thread and everything back in January, but the op got suspended.. this is all that's left of the discourse unfortunately

    Not to be an ARMY Defender here but I think the reason most armys get tired of people coming for namjoon when this cornrows/braids discourse comes up is because the guy already apologised (although vaguely) for the shit he did in the past, and has clearly tried to educate himself on these issues. That being said, there are still lots of things that haven't been accounted for, like the Holocaust Memorial photoshoot (which was just taken down and never acknowledged), Jimin saying kkamdongie, Hoseok's Mic Drop braids, etc
    On a semi-related note, one of the strangest things I think kpop fans do is water down serious issues like racism and homophobia to fandom drama. One incident I remember was when one of those lesser YG boy groups did a 'coming out as gay' prank to his homophobic mom who started crying. A lot of lgbt kpop fans across the community expressed their disappoint/disgust, only for the fandom to tell them "if u don't stan stfu this aint ur business" or "well u stan xx so your opinion is invalid" like... most people are human before they're kpop fans ofc they'll be upset if they see celebrities doing things that ridicule their existence.
    Also another weird thing I've seen related to turning real issues into fandom drama is when Black Armys who wanted BTS to be their African Kings so badly that they staged racist army bullying and tried to get that Billboard writer to make an article about it in hopes that BTS would make a statement. Like they were literally sending themselves anon messages calling themselves porch monkeys and moon crickets and then fake crying about it on twitter saying that "It's hard being a black army :((((( ". They even tried to pin the blame on the korean armys and started using google translate korean to call themselves filthy niggers. I think I completely lost it when they started calling their movement "BlackARMYlivesMatter" in complete seriousness. Like good job on completely disrespecting an actual movement for equality that's gotten their founders killed for fighting for justice by using it for kpop fanwars of all things.

    I'm not trying to start anything I swear I'm just confused as to why this person is being downvoted? Like I disagree with some of their opinions myself but aren't some of these unpopular like the thread said? I thought you only downvote if the comment is off topic? What am I missing?
     He made the title himself in that one American interview and it basically became a meme LOL so i don't think it's based on merit. I don't think he isn't handsome though, just not as attractive/eyecatching as Taehyung and Jimin. (This is in response to mzkvctm's post btw i can't get the quote thing to work rn?)

    I love BNHA but the fight scenes in that show are really boring,
    Most horror anime try too hard to be horrifying and come off as ridiculous and stale imo

    It's so weird to me how kpop fans brag about their favourite groups being rich lmao, especially ARMYs... like every time they find out BTS are super wealthy now they trend a hashtag to brag and like while I understand it's remarkable to see BTS go from dollar store chains to custom made gold rings, it's not YOUR flex?? Like they worked hard and went through countless shit to get where they are, what did y'all do aside from not bathe and starve just to stream?

    The energy was there when the collab was announced before those few loud asses in the fandom start complaining about how we're 'hurting bts!1!1'
    Now everyone is completely up her ass because she's nice to them? The bar is so low.
    A lot of people pretend the nicki collab never happened though, myself included

    God I'd love to hear his voice on a solo RnB project! BTS's current safe pop style is not doing him any favours right now lol
    TBH 98% of Girl group stans only like girl groups for their looks and concepts, which is pretty ironic considering that's what they assume bg stans only like boy groups for lmao like if you go through gg stans twitter, majority of them are only hyping up the girls' looks and rarely talk about the music, vocals, choreo, it's not a surprise that they'll shit on the women whose looks don't fit their standards.

    This thread was made for me. The only thing I'm good at is giving my unwarranted opinions on korean music. Thank you.
    I usually don't like the term 'overrated' but blackpink truly is overrated. Mediocre songs, lackluster dances, boring choreo, They are literally a rehash of 2ne1 but conventionally pretty. What annoys me the most is that they ARE talented girls, and i'm sure they can do better musically, but not under the shitty control of YG entertainment LOL I LOVE BTS I really do, but Jimin CANNOT SING please stop giving him those high ass notes to hit he can't hit it!! Jin has stable vocals but his actual tone is so nasally I can't get into it. Tae is ok but he's even better doing soul n rnb genres, not those boring kdrama osts he keeps dishing out. Jungkook is carrying the vocal line on his backs at this pointBTS make the worst hype songs. Not a single hype song they've created sounds good to me. The only exception is cypher pt 2 and 3. Dionysus and IDOL are especially grating to my ears.There's nothing wrong with being a solo stan lmao why should we care if a person only keeps up with a group for only one member? you can't expect me to show the exact same enthusiasm for every memberWish that girl group stans would stop calling anyone who criticises their precious girl group a misogynist. Also pls stop saying that you;re a feminist bc you only stan girl groups. posting that oh my girl fancam under every popular tweet isn't activism.

    it's been 4 years since I started this thread wow.
    From the 2 pages I've read I see that ms Berry has gone through some character development and has stopped shopping herself to look like an anime character! I'm proud! Also proud that she's gotten a bf that she seems to really care about and even has a social life! Good on u Berry! I hope her bf recovers from lymphoma well!

    I took a break from my hiatus just to respond to this nonsense
    Coming from a black person transitioning to natural  hair herself, it's hilarious that you're here going off on her trying to look blasian and using black features as aesthetic when you lowkey don't seem to know what black features look like lmao. A short curly wig =/= afro my friend, 3A/3B fros are shaped way differently that whatever the hell is on her head in that video and she doesn't look remotely Blasian at all. Also, just because your hair doesn't look like that, doesn't mean it's gonna be the same for everyone else. 
    Sorry if I'm coming across as a bitch, but nonblack people crying cultural appropriation for black features when they don't have a bloody clue on what they're talking about gets me pressed.

    Anyway some more unpopular opinions from this rogue ninja:
    kpop twitter is cancerous bruh there are people out there making tasteless edgy jokes about someone's death i hate it manAlthough y'all see me in the akidearest thread a lot, I actually don't mind her that much and she seems like an okay albeit cringey person. And some of ya'll give me the impression from your posts there that the only reason you don't like the girl is because she's fuckin around with Joey, who's cute lolHonestly A LOT of y'all give me the impression that the main reason you're hating on certain 'snowflakes' is because you're jealous/bitter about some aspect of them. It shows in the level of pettiness in your posts lol. Cut that out kids, it's not healthy to be extremely jealous over random ass people on the internet, especially the ones discussed here of all places.Speaking of, I saw someone describe this place as being girly Kiwifarms, and while they're not 100% wrong, they aren't right either. There's a difference in how KF and PULL treat their lolcow discussions. KF plays everything for laughs, snowflake behaviour is just a source of comedy for them, PULL on the other hand, has a chunk of users who take things snowflakes a tad bit too personally. For the sake of your mentalities, lighten up a littleOh how I wish people would stop making fun of others for how they dress, wear makeup, style hair etc etc. It's one thing to dislike something, it's another to bash people and have negative opinions of a person just because they like ripped jeans lol, that's kinda shallowWhat is Taeyang trying to doWhy are people obsessed with shipping kpop idols together man like yeah I think Jungkook and Eunha would be a cute couple but ya don't see me making 1000+ photoshop edits of couple photos and AMVs come on kids go outside for a bitthat's it for now luv u guys

    His content consists of him making fun of little kids and causing drama and he seriously expected Youtube to want to be associated with him?
    Talk about a lack of self-awareness.
