Banana Allergy Monkey is one of the most ridiculous songs I’ve heard. Yes, I know some songs are simply supposed to be fun, but you can’t tell me this isn’t a straight up kids’ song.

Regular may be NCT 127’s greatest title track ever. Hell it may even be the greatest title track for NCT as a whole.

The Love Yourself Series came out at a great time for me. I’ve been going through some serious difficulties in life and songs like Magic Shop, Serendipity, Sea, Seasaw, Answer: Love Myself and Singularity have really helped me a lot. I love the lyrics and the comfort their voices provide, it’s like a cup of warm tea on a rainy day. I just really love BTS

Super Junior had songs that has a Latin American/Spanish feel for a long time but I’m happy that they’re moving forward with that sound these days. They even had a song that was in all Spanish on their recent album.

it makes me really uncomfortable thinking that there are some idols that are at the age when they’re supposed to be in school, especially idols/trainees around 12-16 because the amount of training the companies are putting on these kids is a lot and could eventually take a toll on them. it also makes me think that there should be a minimum age for trainees to debut, old enough to handle the stress of the idol life but young enough to have them be in the industry for a good 5-7 years.

I’m not a blink but Lisa’s recently video where she danced to Cardi B shows that she’s the best female dancer in kpop for this gen. Before this video I used to think dancers like Seulgi and Chungha were at least on her level but that video proved why she’s number one.

NCT 127’s ‘Regular HUH’ challenge is literally so stupid. It’s like they want their fans to embarrass themselves and get beat up in the streets. I would say no one’s going to do it, but I did see a fan video of a girl who did it on IG, and she look absolutely dead inside afterwards. NCT couldn’t even pay me their salaries to do something like that with the way my anxiety is set up..

I think it’s childish to get angry with an idol for leaving their group and wanting to change their career path, especially when it’s a career they probably chose as preteens/teenagers. They owe it to themselves, their coworkers, and their bosses to work hard, but they don’t owe it to us to be miserable. I, too, have had jobs that sounded good on paper, but made me miserable once I took it. I’ve overestimated myself. It happens to everyone at some point. If your heart is no longer in the career you chose, you’re being mistreated, or you feel like the pay-off isn’t worth the struggle anymore, it’s time to leave. There’s no shame in that.

I personally don’t think Chungha should have gone solo. It was a good move on her and her company’s part, seeing how incredibly popular she is- but her voice feels so small to listen to. She doesn’t carry much power in her voice and, at least in my opinion, it makes her songs a little lacklustre to listen to. She also always talks about ioi which leads me to think she might be a bit lonely as a solo artist, and would have been happy in a group of friends like ioi.

I think N has the best stage presence of any kpop idol. Watching him is like watching art. I don’t even like most VIXX songs, but I’ll watch all of his solo fan-cams because there isn’t a second on stage where he’s giving it his all and immersing himself into the song.
