This isn't really an unpopular opinion but after watching Mel's/(used to be exosexo) video on why she left the loop fandom really cemented my views on how detrimental kpop is on ones body image. Every time I see a fan defend say rose from blackpink of her very obvious eating disorder justifying it as "no she's just naturally that way" or the very common "she's Asian" (this apply to almost all idols btw) I can't help but feel just incredibly angry. I understand that the people defending these idols are very young teens that have yet to or still going through puberty and cannot see why this isn't normal since they haven't gone through the shifting and gaining of weight that comes with it, and with that being said only makes this inevitable fact of life very troubling when they grow up and realise being below 45 kilos and around 160 cm isnt at all normal, or worse try anything to retain this very thin figure. All in all what it comes down to is that any medium of entertainment where they glorify a very unhealthy body time is incredibly awful to the way people think about themselves but kpop, at least IMO takes the cake for the absolute worst. I honestly can't imagine a real idol's struggle with this.
- blog posting is the main reason why i loathe PULL, no one cares about some vague topic loosely related to the snowflake that has somehow effected you, nor if it furthers your argument on why you're a great person and the the snowflake is awful - offering a reasonable explanation or opinion is not white knighting, nor does not warrant a warn (kenna threads lmao)
lmao nah 3rd gen idols just have better access to plastic surgery since its becoming a must in most company contracts. Talent wise, nothings changed, there will always be weak links in groups it's just that the trends have changed
fuck the amount of times ive had to convince friends to not take the $20 acid they just brought from some sketchy bogan dealer since its probably laced with fentanly is appalling. the australian drug problem is basically ingrained in our culture at this point
