I became an EXO-L the minute the first teaser was released but after some members left the group, I kinda distanced myself from EXO because it just “hurt”. Now that I’m going through a nostalgic phase (and thus going back to EXO), I realize how much I love the boys and how much I missed them in my life but one thing I definitely didn’t miss is the fandom. Some people are still as annoying and disrespect as before and it’s just sad tbh.
“Popularity =/= good music.” I can agree. At the same time, “taste is subjective.” Ex: Love Scenario and DNA had mix responses from my POV. Yet LS became a THAT Hit in Korea, while DNA is still charting well in Korea and is about to recieve Platinum in the US. This community has a habit of speaking like they represent the majority, not individually with others who can either agree/ disagree with their opinion, when it comes to music preferences, then question why said music is so popular.
twice yes or yes lyrics had me a little leery… like, really? who thought some of those lyrics were a good idea? it was a cute song otherwise and the girls did great as always, but they way they kinda nudged the line there was a bit too much.
I‘m say Korea sleeps on Stray Kids but I kinda see them go the Got7 way. Very popular internationally and mid tier popularity in sk after a while
Just because some groups are more popular like EXO, BTS, etc. Doesn’t mean everyone is meant to like them. This also goes for lesser known groups; just because they have good music(which is subjective anyway) doesn’t mean everyone has to give them attention. It’s just the way the music industry goes. Some people just don’t make it despite deserving it while others get excess attention.
some loona stans are very… hypocritical. like, you say you don’t like their music and they’re all “you don’t know what good music is” or “that’s a shame anyways stan loona” like why can’t people listen to what they want to and not have that group’s fans act like it’s a sin not to like loonas music. if anyone were to say any of those things about a different group everyone would laugh but because it’s loona, some stans are just rude to other people’s opinions
although i stopped following them once the LY series started because i wasnt a big fan of the music, i have to admit that bts’ stage presence is still very impressive (most of the time). sometimes i see clips of them going HARD, especially the rap line, and they just look like theyre having the time of their lives on stage. they seem particularly energetic during their concerts and despite not being a very big fan, im glad theyre enjoying themselves
I love how comparing female idols is “pitting women against each other” but comparing male idols is somehow ok and not “pitting men against each other” when it comes to constructive criticisms of either gender
Someone needs to actually sit Jennie down and get her to do her job again. My friend and I went see BLACKPINK live and her lazy dancing actually ruined some of the performances (we were up higher so we could see everyone on stage). She was my bias but after this I don’t know anymore.
