    This may not be unpopular, but idols definitely shouldn't be younger than 16 and they shouldn't be able to train in companies, when they are like 8 years old. So much time of their life gets wasted, if they don't debut, often they have a huge debt, their grades suffer and often they have no normal childhood (some can't even tell their friends that they are trainees). And I feel sorry for the dancer Ha Eun (I think that was her name. I mean the really young child, who covers K-Pop songs and now even performs with the idols etc.).

    Honestly PM me, if you want. I won't talk about it here anymore. I just said it wasn't the users point probably & again this wasn't only aimed at you ...
    Thank you @jb-ist

    Who said I am angry lol? I didn't only meant you, so why do you feel so attacked? Yes, I am annoyed because literally everywhere on YouTube etc. and even here I hear that we should thank those people for almost everything, because they invented certain genres. The people I see commenting about this are almost always pretty disrespectful and low key racist themselves. I saw over the years several comments like "Your ching ching favourites are nothing against real black rappers" etc. @staycalmdouche you can point it out, but I see several disrespectful comments from those people, who point it out. I think it says a lot about you, if you imply that I am racist, just because I say that it wasn't really needed to point it out here. It would have been enough to say it was R&B influenced, because who the hell doesn't know here that it was made by black people? The ethnic had nothing to do with the topic of music genres, who influence K-Pop here. Black artists (at least where I live) get praised so much and I see nothing but love for them everywhere, so I don't know why you all act like not one black artist is famous. Rihanna got a lot of credit for being the first one to include so many skin tone shades and body types in her work etc. I really love Jazz, Gospel and R&B, so it is not because I hate these genres etc. The situation is basically the same to me as those annoying koreaboos, who say that we should kiss the floor, where their idols walk and be thankful for that just because they have hard choreographies etc. And yes, it sucks that black people aren't well liked and get discriminated in Asia and hopefully it will change soon, but in most of these places, where people comment this, the people aren't racist, so comments like this are not needed there. It is needed by those delusional K-Pop fans on Twitter, who think their favourites invented the world. There is a difference between educating them and putting others a.k.a. the idols down. Also I am kind of annoyed that I rarely hear that we need to respect other cultures music and I only hear it about the black culture. I don't really hear of any other culture being so offended, when their music is used. Most were actually happy to hear their music being used and say as long as they are respectful it is okay. It is totally okay to say that we should respect them etc. and call them out, when they are acting disrespectful or use something sacred, but then why only feel the need to point out that only one of the cultures needs to be respected? (G)-Idle used the middle east/Indian (depending on what you see) in Latata and the only thing the people pointed out was that the henna shouldn't have been drawn on or that they are okay with the henna. Nobody said anything about that they should thank Arabic/Indian people for the music (and that their favourite idols are nothing against other Indian/Arabic singers etc.) and while they aren't treated as bad as black people in Asia, they are often still treated bad in comparison to other Asians. And I mentioned J-Pop, because some act here like R&B and Hip Hop were the only ones, who influenced K-Pop, which isn't true. It was also influenced by the east. Also how should the music industry thank black artists? Saying something like "I love the black people for inventing rap" would get the person hate for fetishing them etc. And if you thank one of the cultures you need to thank all of them. I bet most here don't want to understand what I am saying here and will still say I am racist etc., but if you don't understand my point now, than you will never understand it :). I have two black friends, which I love dearly and I stopped liking groups whenever they had a scandal, because they were being racist, so I don't need to prove anyone anything here. Just agree to disagree 
    And about black women doing a sexy music video etc. and not being hyped: It is not really true. Especially the young K-Pop fans are fans of Nikki, Cardi B, Beyoncé etc. and hype them up a lot and always call their favourites something like "the Korean Beyoncé" etc.
    And rap music is really popular in the west, so the bragging is of course more extreme in the west. I don't like rap music, so I avoid it in K-Pop too, but the overall mainstream music in Korea is still pop and most groups don't have another theme besides love (and low key sex), while the mainstream music in the west is rather rap music

    I didn't go to mine too and I think I was the only one XD. I don't regret it at all, because I can't stand loud music and most people weren't nice plus I don't drink alcohol and I heard the food sucked. The "games" they played weren't funny to me and I wasn't willing to pay 65€ for a ticket + 200€ for a dress, when I would not have a good time. The parents were there at the beginning too and I would have to hang out with the friends of my (ex-)friend, who were koreaboos and I was angry at my friend and she didn't noticed at all. I had the best day of my life at home instead 😂

    I will be downvoted for this by people who will feel offended, but I think the two of you miss the point the original comment wanted to make: While R&B was pretty big back then, I can't really remember Hip Hop being big (except with YG groups). K-Pop was pretty influenced in the late 2000s by J-Pop and maybe this person meant the J-Pop sound and not the R&B etc. one, which K-Pop had rather at the beginning. The "problem" with western/American songs/raps is that they really openly talk about sex, drugs etc., while you would never hear it that openly in mainstream K-Pop songs. Any music industry is sexualized, but American artists are way more open about it, while K-Pop is way more subtil about the topic (expect some groups and the outfits. I really mean song wise you don't hear anyone really saying I want to fuck you etc.). I don't know why you all feel the need to point out, that R&B etc. are black genres, because nobody said it is not (and nobody disrespected them, so why do you feel the need to point out that they need to be respected? Literally nobody said something against them. Why do you assume the worst? In the original comment I nowhere interpreted that they said Koreans invented everything) and it has nothing really to do with the topic that K-Pop's sound has changed and the person didn't intended to say that Koreans invented all the sounds and just said it sounded different before and different than western music at the time (now it just sounds western). K-Pop sounded more like J-Pop until the end of the second generation and to be honest I miss the sound too. Pop and K-Pop don't sound different at all anymore and most songs sound at least to 60% the same (especially with boy groups, who almost all nowadays have the bad boy concept), which is a shame

    I had the same problem several times with my (ex-)friend and talked about it here. She literally said she found no infomation on Google about questions I made for her (because she "can't think of anything useful and argues with her parents and she is soooo tired" etc., while I actually had it much worse than her back then). Questions like when was a certain king crowned, where Google even shows you the exact date immediately. She made me do EVERYTHING several times and dared to cry, when I called her one day before the dead line (after asking her several times before how far along she is and that I want to be finished two weeks before and that she should send me her part etc.), where her part is and she said she had not much (she actually had nothing at all even though she had the easiest part) and I told her to send it to me at 10 p.m. because I wanted to sleep and had to do our charts etc. because hers were literally full sentences with several grave spelling and grammar mistakes and she even wrote dates like this 3.7.1911. and sometimes like this 3.May.1993. (with a dot at the end...) etc. I called her several times and at 8.p.m. she cried again and told me she is so sleepy and can't do it and that she fell asleep and that's why I couldn't reach her before (when I called her 20 times. She even had a ring on and her parents would have heard it and would have woken her up, so she was lying. At one point she even shut her phone totally off and her parents are too stupid with technology to do it) and she literally did in the 8 hours, she could have done something, nothing again. I was so angry, because I did a big part of her part in the time and she only had to google the history with questions I even send to her. She literally said to me that our teacher will understand that she can't do it because of her argument with her parents (which was only about how she should eat more and that she should at least try a certain vegetable. Just thinking about it makes me so mad) and no, our teacher would have given us an F and I told her that. She said okay then we will have an F, while not caring about the fact that she was the one, who should be punished for it and not me, who wanted to pass. She acted like it was no big deal (but it was a really big one) and acted like I was fine with it too. She went to sleep and I did her part, because she just gavenough up and ended the call, while I was still talking. I really regret forgiving her for it and for continuing presentations with her, I should have done them alone (I sadly always was automatically paired with her). In the end she was just like "thanks" and that she will be better next time (spoiler: no she wasn't). Don't do my mistake and tell the teacher. My teacher openly said that he didn't cared about one partner not doing anything, but he was an asshole. Believe me, tell them or you will regret it like I do now. I know she is your friend, but a good friend wouldn't do crap like that and she shouldn't get the same grade as you. She worked zero hours and you probably like 10 hours already. Don't let your life time be thrown away by her, because she doesn't want to do her own part. Don't give her any infomations about the project anymore (and maybe openly write(!) her that she should be honest that she doesn't want to do anything or else her part will be missing in it, because you "believed" that she will do it and after she wrote that she won't do anything, then you can use it as a proof for your teacher). Please don't make my mistake, I lost so many years of my life because of the stress and anger because of my (ex-)friend and and I don't wish the same to you. Good luck!🍀

    I seriously don't know why people support Big Bang at all anymore. A few weeks ago I thought about posting an article (mind you I can't understand Korean and the article was in English) and it was about T.O.P. liking a video, where fans commented that they wanted the five members back together and Taeyang said "I know". And Taeyang got a Seungri doll from a fan and walked around with it. It is disgusting to think that even after everything has happened not only the fans but the other two members seem to wish that Seungri is still a part of BB too and see no real problem with Seungri. It is disrespectful towards the victims, but what else can one expect from members, who turned their eyes away from the crimes of at least one member and even joke about it? I can somehow understand, that they didn't wanted to ruin their careers and they probably didn't knew everything, but they joked about it a lot, the like and the doll are enough prove for me, that they just don't really care. The least they could do is to distance themselves openly from Seungri's actions, but they don't even do that. That they got away with their crimes (even if some were small) for so long is honestly ridiculous, they have had a bad aura around them (and their image was also not the cleanest) since at least 2013 (without a joke I literally looked at their photos back then and got a bad impression of them. And I am not the only one, who back then got this kind of impression, but V.I.P.s and YG stans defended them so much...). A group, which had so many (and partly pretty serious) crimes shouldn't be supported. People (especially international ones) kind of excuse all crimes of YG artists, would any other non YG group do this, than they would be so hated on.
    PS: I am really too tried to read and understand the context with video correctly, so I may have made some minor mistakes, but overall the message is the same.
    Here is one of these articles about it:

    I have had this a few times already. Often after I try it a few times again it accepts my vote. I think it even happened to me, when I didn't gave reputation to someone. I don't know why it happens, sorry ^^'

    You get used to a smell, if you smell it over a long time. It can be really faint, but someone, who isn't used to this will smell it directly, it is just like this. It still doesn't make you gross, you didn't sold it with ill intentions and you cleaned it. Try not to think about it, because you refunded a large part of it and the person isn't forced to keep it or could message you to take it back. Or maybe the person can smell things really good and rather unhuman like. Honestly don't feel bad about it

    Don't be ashamed, every pet owner had such a situation at least once and it doesn't make you gross. Your cat was sick and you cleaned it. You really don't need to be ashamed

  14. Serala added a post in a topic General Venus Angelic Thread #3   

    Am I the only one, who is bothered with how she advertised this? Yeah, I know that what she offers is already crap, but the way she tries to advertise it is really bad. I am nitpicking, but she really has a child/teenager like mind. First of all, who says that they joined others in doing it, while trying to come off as if you care about your fans by interacting with them more? Second, why would she (especially now that she goes back to her cute image) advertise it with the word "shitshow". Either she is so into the internet slang and thought it will be cool or she plans to continue being a wreck and hopes that people like David want to see her suffer and pay for it. Third, why would she write "puke"? Venus that isn't edgy anymore, it is embarrassing. And did she write announcement wrong on purpose to continue with the edgy humor by mixing announcement and annoyance together? This whole thing looks like a really bad joke to me and if I didn't know that this is Venus, I would have thought that someone wants to pull a stupid prank. Fourth, even if her fans are most likely 12 year olds they still won't spend their money on "candy bars and juice boxes", either their parents will buy it for them or they rather buy themselves make up, clothes, a new phone etc. with their money. She should have taken the hint the first time after her fans voted that they don't want a fan club etc. and not do it anyway a few months later. It is such a bad business move: She won't deliver content and will disappoint the fans, who are still willing to pay her, she excludes her other fans, who can't (because they are too young) or won't pay her the money and therefore they will lose interest in her, she will lose followers and won't even get sponsorships in the future anymore, if she continues to lose followers. It seems like she didn't thought about the consequences at all or just doesn't care...
    She could have such an easy life, if she would do videos and ask clothing websites (or wig and make up ones) for sponsorships and could go to themed cafés, even if she only drinks a coffee with someone, her fans would still watch it and it wouldn't cost a lot. She could even ask her followers for video ideas. She really is lazy and somehow expects that people will give her money for nothing...

    To be honest I see way more hate towards cats and cat lovers than dogs and dog lovers. It somehow became a trend to hate cats because they are "assholes" just because they don't jump on people and are more open about disliking a person. And I see as many people post dog pictures as people post cat pictures. I voted only one of the two person down, because you can like dogs more than cats, but to act like cats are heartless and replace you etc. is simply not a true fact. Cats and dogs are pretty similar and just because a cat is nice to someone else doesn't mean they replaced their owner. People would never say this about a dog. My cat literally rather wants to starve than being away from (especially) my mother. I had both dogs and cats and they are both wonderful, so I don't know why people even want to shove down others throats that they prefer the one animal above the other especially when nobody asked them lol (and I don't meant it really here because this is an unpopular opinion thread but in real life and on the rest of the internet it is so extreme that people have in their bio that they love dogs/cats post, ask you what you prefer, make posts etc. It is so annoying)
