I like a lot of Hyuna's music and I respect her as a person, but ughh I hate how they do her makeup. The makeup they usually give her makes her look really sick.

They usually give her this look with red/pink eyeshadow smudged all around her eyes and the mascara kind of messed up. She kind of has a party girl persona so I assume it supposed to be the "I partied all night and just rolled out of bed and showed up in the studio" look, but to me, it looks like she's recovering from a really bad cold because the pink makeup makes her eyes look swollen and sick. 

I think she looks much prettier with her normal makeup like this:

AGAIN this is not me dissing Hyuna as a person or artist, I just don't like how they do her makeup.

I understand that jpop fans want to show kpop fans that jpop can be just as good as kpop but they need to stop showing the same five groups in their "jpop recommendations for kpop fans" videos. I'm not even much of a kpop fan and I'm lowkey offended like they think the kpop fandom is a hive mind or something lololol.

Why can't all these idol agencies realize fans want TRANSPARENCY?

When idols disappear for months on end with no explanation, fans' trust in the group and agency immediately goes down by 500%. People begin jumping to the worst conclusion - "This member has been missing for 2 months, I guess the group is going to end soon." The group starts getting more negative press than positive press. There starts being news articles like "(Idol) spotted in (country that's not Korea) - are they done with Kpop?"

Just be honest... If the idol is injured or depressed be honest so the fans can respect the idol's wishes and allow them to recover. If they are rethinking their contract to pursue acting or something else just say so. But don't leave fans in the dark.

There's been so many idols randomly disappearing for months on end this past year. But look at JYP and Mina - everyone feels sad and worried for Mina, but JYP was honest about where she was from the start. So everyone is okay with Mina's absence, just waiting for her to get better if she can. Seems to me like I haven't seen a lot of news about Mina, which is good, we know where she is and it's none of our business to stalk her or harass her now. But if an idol just vanishes with no update from the company everyone will start to speculate.

I feel like Kpop became too influenced by western music. And overall Kpop is just not the same. I miss the old groups and their more unique style.

-Queendom is currently airing on my tv right now and idk why but i feel weird seeing mamamoo there. Like the energy is off. Yes i have seen positive comments about them as contestants on the show but they were comments from Moomoos. Or kpop stans who are sugarcoating and amplify anything about their favored group. For me, their “humility” in the show feels...backhanded? Like they already know they’re better than most of the other girls so they can give the others the more favorable songs etc. To clean up their public image, maybe? Tldr; to me, Mamamoo are talented af among the groups currently active but they seem ingenuine about their intentions in joining Queendom

- GOD I HOPE I AM WRONG but Lucy (Formerly known as Jiyeon from Bighit’s Glam) seems like advertising as an escort/sugarbaby with her change of username in instagram (heylucycutie ➡️ 165cm43kg220mm). OR MAYBE AS A MODEL but that would be weird because she has an agency. But really, who on earth displays their vital stats freely including shoe size?!! I mean hello foot fetish???

-another point about Lucy, i wish she had stopped touching her face after her BDay EP shoot. She went overboard with everything especially the joker lips and her forehead fillers

they don't care. at the end of the day, fans throw money at companies no matter what they do so the companies have literally no reason to change how they work. sad, but true. and the fan's reasoning behind it - i wanna support my group... as if the company doesn't take most of the profit anyway...

Some people think it's gossipy and rude to discuss whether idols have had plastic surgery but I hope we discuss it until the end of time.

#1. Yes, your fav probably had PS. They weren't born with the V-shaped jaw and tall nose bridge. You probably wouldn't even recognize them pre-PS. There's nothing wrong with PS but let's not act like most people are born like that. It was a talented surgeon who created that face. 

#2. We don't perfectly beautiful asian men and women to feel there is something wrong with them for not being born with double eyelids or other features uncommon in asians. Most kpop stars looked like run of the mill asian people before PS. Kpop can give unhealthy beauty ideals.

Quoting since it's kind of related,

I don't get why fans say that there's nothing wrong with plastic surgery, but then deny that their idols have ever gotten one (when they obviously have) and insist that they were born perfect. Those contrary points don't match with one another lol.

I also hate the constant argument like, "They didn't get plastic surgery! They just lost their baby fat!" bish, losing baby fat doesn't change the shape of your jaw and nose :S stop being delusional.

Koreans call each other plastic monsters in a place where people have been said to gift surgery to barely teen children.. Idk it seems to be a very sensitive topic but also a topic to shame you over.. Idk, I'm still trying to make sense of it all aswell

I’m sorry but this doesn’t make sense because kpop has ALWAYS ALWAYS been influenced by “Western” music. Let’s not forget how in the 90s/2000s when it was really on the rise, it completely ripped off Black American musicians. It has never been unique. The EDM, noisy music that trended late 2000s/early2010s? Been around for decades. It always has and always will be influenced by western music. The few things I can give them credit for is their music shows, and music videos etc. But in terms of actual music? Nah.

And “kpop” isn’t even a genre of music like many like to think. It’s genres of music, in Korean... its not like Latinopop where there are distinct features such as the drums, types of melodies, instruments, that make it a whole genre.
