We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
i admire your cause but consider that youre asking real human beings with jobs and reputations to lay everything down on the line to attempt to change a society, culture and industry that have been largely unchanged for decades. not everyone is hyuna and edawn. not everyone wants to be jihyo and daniel. if bighit is lying theyre lying because jungkook isnt ready to go public with it and that's his right. but i also dont know how many people have to tell you she already has a boyfriend before you accept it lol also she released a statement an hour ago, explaining they are not involved. i understand it but not sufficiently enough to translate. i hope someone here can.
i honestly couldnt disagree more. these people have a right to privacy as much as you or me or anyone else. bts are not on a dating ban, and most of their fans will not abandon them over being regular human beings with emotions, but nobody (and especially not fucking stalkers) has the right to take the choice of being public or staying private about their romantic relationships away regardless of that. not to mention there are numerous dangers for the significant other who is not famous in this situation - from threats, salking, doxxing to even worse. and we all see the backlash idols face. i think we all agree that dating bans and secret relationships are dumb, unnecessary and inhumane but its not only a matter of should or shouldnt have to, its a matter of personal choice and preference as well. these people have actual lives, its more than just doing spring cleaning in the fandom and how you can boil down a fundamental invasion of privacy to just that is honestly beyond me.
she attended a wedding in japan. shes the one who took those pics and there are two more posts from that same date tagged at the same location which show her wearing a traditional dress with a red skirt. so those are her friends getting married. as for whether or not they're dating, i honestly dont know. all we have is two pictures of them hanging out with friends, one of which is an alleged back hug from the shadiest looking cctv tape ever and some circumstantial evidence. i wouldnt personally draw any conclusions yet but i will say it pisses me off that shes getting harrassed over what essentially amounts to a blurry back hug and if he were any other idol his whole career would be on the line for it as well. its fucked up.
the only reason it was announced was because it was their first actual official break literally ever. which is so fucking sad to me im pretty sure it was technically two months but the first month they still worked, they were just off-schedule (comeback prep most likely) and this past month they had completely off. now they film bon voyage or summer package or whatever before theyre officially back on schedule starting with the saudi arabia show. i dont think anything is being rushed because of txt, they just have a very questionable definition of hiatus.
bts didnt release hip hop phile, a track entirely devoted to their love and respect for the origins of hip hop and rap and paying homage to every rapper that inspired them (most of whom are african american), for their white bread "fans" to be spewing this tone deaf racist bullshit in 2019
mamamoo is lowkey going down the bts route of becoming more and more generic and commercialized as their hype grows and im honestly already yawning. they have potential, it just doesnt seem like they're gonna do anything with it. plus they're like one racism-related scandal away from flopping, so.....
i would almost bet my ass sm ideally wanted an nct member to be a leader because thats the group theyre trying to push with this little pet project. they dont give a shit about shinee or exo anymore, its obvious. the only issue is that the nct boys are young as fuck and it would have been disrespectful to put one of them as a leader over their senior colleagues. and they still wanna treat taemin as a solo artist despite pausing his career to put him in sperm. so we get leader baekhyun to appease exo-ls.
jimins koreaboo copycat is back and wasting even more money on plastic surgery to completely fuck up any symmetry and humanity that might have been left in his waxy botched face. with every surgery he gets closer and closer to looking like the demon i see in the corner of my room during sleep paralysis.
