since it's been some time since map of the soul: 7 was released, what are your thoughts on it? personally i liked it. love yourself: her was the last album i liked that bts released, so i was glad to see this one had good songs too. i know most people didn't like this album because it wasn't really cohesive(?), pitchfork even rated it worse than persona.
oh yeah, i remember this. but then it isn't surprising, just what kpop stans haven't the blinks fought with? lmao https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg0MXQzb2Vo and watching seungyeon's cover.. now how did she outdance lisa just by sitting. i can see why blinks would be mad. i think (from what i can see), it boils down to facial expressions. seungyeon seems to be excellent at it, lisa on the other hand really needs to work on them. the right facial expressions really make the choreography flow like water.
read a tweet where someone said the blackpink girls always talk about how they’re scared their fans will leave them and yet.. they do nothing for the fans. and i honestly had to agree. they can’t even do vlives and even when they do vlives, you have to pay to watch them. rosé is basically the only person who does instagram lives but she does that like once in a blue moon. they hardly ever release song covers. lisa releases dance covers and that’s about it. and yet blinks have the audacity to be mad when other stans say the blackpink girls have no personality, which isn’t far from the truth. the pinks need to learn how to cater to and keep their fans. this fame isn’t going to last forever, i hope they realize that.
i remember rosé carrying blackpink in that one american interview. it was the first time i heard her speaking english, and her accent was literally adorable. if it’s anyone, i think rosé deserves the “unofficial” leader title in blackpink. she’s charming, can hold on her own, is the main vocalist, and can attract the audience during stage. she also looks like the type who can console people when they’re sad or if there’s a conflict on the rise. that’s the vibe i get with her.
this. i once commented on celia's youtube that her content would get more views if she at least tried to act enthusiastic and she replied back saying why i was watching her if i found her so boring. i mean.. ok? guess i can't give some constructive criticism without her taking it to heart.
don't quote me on this but i believe it's their 1st chinese fansite and is owned by one person. they get their revenue by selling merch (such as their idol's fansite pictures, blankets with the idol's face, key-chains, etc.) and they also get revenue from other chinese fans. i think lisa is likeable too. as for standing out, she is definitely the person who always stands out in music videos, she is a stan attractor and that's just facts. however, in performances rosé stands out more to me. people say lisa sets herself back on dancing during performances bc she doesn't wanna outshine the other members (idk how much truth there is to that statement), but with that said, i think rosé just displays the dance moves better and it seems like dancing comes naturally to her.
those _CN accounts are called chinabar fan accounts and most idols have them. they're chinese fanbases dedicated to one member of a group, and they definitely go hardcore for their idols, whether it is to advertise the idols' birthdays or to send them endless amounts of gifts or to pre-order albums in bulk amounts. regarding lisa's popularity, i think she's definitely blackpink's most popular member. her dance covers get insane amounts of views in social medias and she is the most followed blackpink member on ig. she is however the least popular member in korea bc koreans are not the most fond of foreign members for whatsoever reasons.
i'm gonna assume yg's the reason rosé's voice has changed so much because he loves his "unique" vocalists. but good god, her voice has gotten irritating nowadays. it's not just her singing voice too, but that cute aegyo voice she does is so fake to me. lisa also sometimes does that fake voice and that's also equally annoying.
is he getting another tattoo? he has very... questionable taste in his tattoos...
hm he used to be very pandering toward his fans too, wonder what happened and why he’s suddenly getting tattoos and keeping his hair long nowadays 🤔 i feel like out of everyone tae has distanced himself a lot with bts members. he’s kind of awkward when he’s with them and he always only posts with his actor friends. maybe he wants to get into acting after jin enlists.
haha, i know yoongi has the whole "savage" personality and all but i see the savageness as more of a sarcastic banter. but (from what i've seen) he only shows that side towards the bts members. i've never seen him call out any fans tbh. and to be honest, i never expected tae to be the type to put fans in their place. also, is it just me or has his personality changed over the years? around debut era he used to be naturally bubbly and happy, but nowadays he seems aloof and just reserved. that brings me to another point, im curious what went on with all of the bts members' relationship, especially jimin and tae's relationship. they all seem like they've drifted apart from each other a little bit.
well i mean bts was supposed to be a hip hop group at first and i can see him as a rapper. but he’s also a pretty good songwriter/producer, idk what bts songs he’s written but wine (the song he produced for suran) and we don’t talk together for heize is genuinely good.
and yeah im assuming tae is tired of armys, he always seems tired and out of it at those airport visits, and in their wechat thing or whatever it’s called he’s called out armys for their inappropriate memes. it’s nothing major but he in general gives me those vibes because the rest of the members only coddle armys and he’s the only member that has “called” the fans out, i suppose.
