Hi all, I paid the server bill for the month so the site can be archived, sorry for the mess, didn't realize there'd be such an uproar. The site's in read-only mode. Happy archiving. Here's a link to a user-made PULL discord server: https://discord.gg/vZFEm75
Deepfakes are a massive issue and shouldn't be allowed to be made. Even in the west apps that allow deepfakes to be made are taken down. If it was just some obvious head-pasting-on-a-video it would be a different story (think the dumb elf apps around christmas time), but this is clear deepfake software. Not only is that problematic, TOP is also a friend of Seungri (and we all know that story). Also, Jennie was a victim of deepfake porn. TOP should know better than to stimulate deepfake-anything among fans "for fun". There are already fans asking what app he used. There is a huge huge huge difference between a funny app that pastes a head on someone else's and deepfakes. The former is funny, the latter is extremely dangerous and often illegal.
As much as I dislike Blonks, I hope they destroy TOP for what he did. They're so good at being irrational wild animals and I hope they d e s t r o y that piece of filth. (Big Bang TOP under controversy for sharing deep-fake video of BLACKPINK)
These are prices that Korean designers apply to their handmade items wtf. The hanbok-inspiration has been growing steadily since 2015 and there are a few huge names out there like LEESLE. These designers are known for their handcrafted designs, research into fabrics and patterns and incorporating the hanbok designs into modernized items. It kinda shows that Joan didn't launch this for Koreans, Koreans would go elsewhere for better stuff. She could have at least tried to make them somewhat fashionable instead of making a jjimjilbang uniform in a pastel color
I posted that meme on the koreaboo thread (could have been another thread but I'm pretty sure it was the koreaboo thread) when that the creator of koreaboo-mocking videos was revealed to be a koreaboo herself. It's funny how this exact description has started to fit Michelle as well. A 'hidden' koreaboo mocking other koreaboos.
It's not incorrect and it is used, but it sounds quite forceful and is usually used with the contrast of "Don't listen to your brains" in a more negative context. She probably meant to get 맘대로 해 which is the most accurate way to translate "Do what you want","do what your heart tells you", "follow your heart", "do however you please". It's softer and more literary. Sounds like she got lazy, used her basic vocabulary skill to compose a sentence and then asked a Korean if it was correct without really asking if it was the best way to translate it She's lucky it's not grammatically wrong though
Jennie wasn't the first idol with the cold distant luxurious image. That was Park Gyuri. Then Krystal. Had f(x) co-existed with Blackpink, Krystal would have been the one with the pins in her hair. Lia just happens to be in the same generation as Jennie, hence the similar look. Their vibe is the same, not because Lia copied Jennie, but because the cool fancy archetype is simply a concept. I just watched the original choreography and I don't know much about dance but.. it is messy as hell too? The moves look sharp and clean but the dance itself is shit? There are 4 members only but they change formation as often as Loona..?!
Let's not pretend these guys worked their way into school and will be hardworking students. They're just gonna be like Yonghwa 2.0 (except they're more powerful so they'll get away with everything). I fail to understand why BTS fans are still convinced their boys are "hardworking, diligent, pure angels" when these guys are nothing but rich people pretending to care about their dumb fangirls because that's what brings in another 5 million for the year. I'll go as far as saying this is a publicity stunt because they don't have to study, they don't have to attend classes, quite frankly they'll get their degrees even if they do jackshit. BUT having a college degree adds a layer to the "good boy" image that fangirls suck up and love to use in their petty twitter fights. I'll take the downvotes for saying this.
Omg no! I hadn't watched it when I commented lolol. It definitely looks like a nice apartment but I'm especially glad she didn't make the video obnoxious. She moved but not to the other side of the country and she had her family help her. I jut really love seeing that down to earthness!
I wouldn't call her a brat. She's just an insecure girl who doesn't know what her next step is. I also think she never expected to blow up. I personally find her gorgeous but she seems aware that she's actually average and boring and that her current 'fame' is a bubble that could pop any time. The reason I like her videos is because she's such a basic girl, still living at home, doing average things. She's not doing these $1000 hauls, $2500-in-rent-apartment-tours, she's not dissing her family or making up sob stories about them, nor is she pretending to constantly be the best version of herself. She reminds me of the 2009 youtubers.
