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.
Though I think canceling a terrible person is a good thing, I agree the mob mentality is contagious, people really get self-righteous with it and (I hate to say it) but often REALLY overstate the damage the person caused. One thing I agree with Contrapoints, her video on Cancel Culture, how it is frowned upon to apologize later when in actuality, someone who has had time to think about it will probably give a more sincere apology from a place of a new perspective, than someone who apologized immediately to appease the mob.
not saying it didnt deserve acclaim...but it was SUPER HEAVILY marketed months before the Oscars. I was seeing videos and director clips only for Parasite everywhere on youtube (V from BTS was seen with an actor from the film so you know armies ate that up, and other kpop stars pushed it) and for none of the other contenders. I was super interested in Atlantics from Senegal but I didnt see it pushed as much as Parasite.
Yep I agree that they have a very distinct formula. One thing that bugged me about BP music is their lack of choruses. They can't harmonize so they rarely get a real chorus that isnt a bass drop. Eta: she said she liked kpop because they write choruses and I'm like lol what?? Are you new to this? So many groups don't bother with choruses, unless they have strong vocals. It's one of my biggest pet peeves about kpop.
Disclaimer: I know safety accidents occur all over the world, but this is just my observation. This is definitely, me, an outsider, peering in but it REALLY seems like Korea in general is lacking when it comes to safety. Heavy generalization I know, but there are numerous big incidents (Sewol ferry, Wendy's accident, Korean Airway, Burning Sun) and smaller events (Korean friends who are surprised American drivers don't roll through stop signs, um because it's dangerous or unnie/hyung culture that forbids dongsaengs from taking car keys from their very drunk unnie/hyung) all that could have been avoided if safety had been made a priority or just given more thought. Like BS, I wish female idols especially would fight for more protection after it was found Seungri was trying to pimp errr I mean set up idols on "blind dates".
I'm not sure going on behind the scenes but it could be that SM is taking time to build a case. You need to demonstrate losses their negligence caused and that probably won't be apparent/documentable until they tour. For medical bills, pain and suffering, cosmetic surgery etc, Wendy is still in the hospital so the final amount can't be determined yet. I hope SM/Wendy sues them for the gold in their teeth.
tbh one thing that sorta bugs about the reaction about Heechul/Momo are the number of people deciding that this means that Heechul is 100% straight because he's dating a woman right now. He still could have dated men before, and could be bisexual.
DO.THEY.EVER If you watch a couple, can you find anyone who looks like they're having fun BTS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf3EdInEpVU BTS again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kQ5gISwe4U SuJu https://youtu.be/pZD4gpcv24Q?t=3226 if you watch if you'll see how Kangin (blue hoodie guy) acts like a whiny bitch ass to the girl asked to do the ranking) Siwon and Kangin were placed at a lower ranking to the shock of EVERYONE but instead of laughing it off they were visibly annoyed, Kangin especially kept making snarky comments to the girl. To me, it's like dudes you're told you're handsome every single day, let another member who always got ranked last (Yesung) enjoy it for five seconds, but nah. Also important Ryeowook is so precious here, hugging his hyung. SNSD https://youtu.be/1zF_rArvBqc?t=27 EXO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMKXqeuNYVk
Kpop groups should STOP doing visual rankings on variety shows or just in general. No one involved thinks they're fun. The 'visual' if they don't get #1 gets passive-aggressive, the 'ugly' one gets told they're ugly for the millionth time for laughs, by the end, everyone is promising to go on a diet. Just ban the bullshit.
You know how he has ARMY across his hand? On his right ring finger he has M J tattooed and his alleged gf's name is Mijoo 🤭 She denied it and denied dating him and armies believed it. And I agree about regret in ten years especially if his gf branded him
Not unpopular here 😅 but elsewhere armies talk about how much they 💜 his tattoos. Lol stop lying, ya know those tats are goofy af. The placement is random, thoughtless seemingly, and the ink is thin on some of them. And I like tatts and think JK could pull off some amazing pieces. And boy what were you thinking letting your gf put her initials on you
In addition to your link https://youtu.be/d72Xvw6nwQ8 0:40 Shindong and Leeteuk tell him to stop dieting. Also in that Super TV episode, Yesung's mother says one of her worries is that he doesn't eat before a day he has schedules. https://youtu.be/DUbD9NXC2nQ here at 0:26 Eunhyuk says to Yesung "Hyung, seriously eat before you come. Just eat." And Yesung swears at him, pissed off, and Heechul cuts the tension by saying "Ohhhh this fight never ends haha." Another recent clip, Kyuhyun makes the same comment to the camera while 'interviewing' Yesung about how he only eats dinner like 5x a year, which I can't find atm. Another show they nicknamed him 'Skipped Meals'. So Suju def know and make a public show of it. His family knows. Elfs know and people seem at a loss of what to do 😔 Edit: I know it seems like I've archived links but it's because his eating is mentioned by the members so often finding clips is easy.
