Having songs with horrible English grammar doesn’t bother me anymore. I’ve been into kpop long enough where now I just accept it, especially knowing English might not be the lyricists’ first language. But sometimes I look at groups that have fluent English speaking members and wonder do they ever look at these lyrics with a raised eyebrow and bring up that it technically doesn’t really make any sense do they the just ignore it. Not anything real deep just a random curiosity of mine.
Kpop stans can be so toxic when it comes to problematic things their bias has done. Most of the time you don’t have to stop being their fan (unless they did something really awful in which case please don’t continue to support), but acknowledge that what they did was wrong and that while you love them, you don’t support their actions and understand that other people cannot like them afterwards and that that’s ok. It’s the worst seeing people defend awful behaviour just because it’s their bias
So many fans talk about nasally voices like it’s all strain and they have no idea what they’re saying. Voices that are nasally can still be supported- it’s just a matter of if they use resonance or not. It’s about the way you sing and the technique. For example; Solji’s higher notes are supported, but she doesn’t use resonance which means that it can come out as nasally. It’s not necessarily bad technique or going to hurt someone’s throat if their voice is nasal.
There is a difference between winning a lot of awards and being remembered as an icon. Looks at the grammy’s or oscars. Hundreds of people have won prices, but only a few have been remembered and still are relevant.
If you are a fan of a group and say “I worked SO hard for my faves to be where they are, I did SO much for them” and you only vote online or stream on Youtube let me tell you that’s not working hard honey, you just took 10 minutes of your day to google a streaming playlist or vote online. Two or three clicks on a computer or phone is not working hard. No big sacrifice. The ones that work hard are the idols. They practice all day for years to be where they are. Istg some fans love taking credit for everything. THEY did SO MUCH for their faves WOW, they SACRIFICED their YOUTH for them with their BLOOD SWEET and TEARS. Give me a break
I don’t really like idols wearing dreads or box braids, not because of cultural appropriation, which is another thing, with them pretending they from the hood. But because it can really damage their hair. These hairstyles were meant for people that have thick curly or kinky hair, which idols do not have. The could end up with a receding hairline or hair breakage if they were these hairstyles to often.
Watching these idols pretending to be all hood when the baddest thing they’ve done is go the convenience store without telling their manager is the most hilarious thing ever.
Can anyone tell me why people get so triggered when someone calls groups “kings”, “queens”, “legends”, etc? If you don’t think this group is a legend great but this other fan that does is doing something harmless and doesn’t deserve any kind of hate. Wtf
Kpop fandom, please stop hating on older fans. As someone who’s friends with late 20s and older kpop fans I’ve seen so much hate directed towards them, telling them their mere existence is a bother in the fandom, telling them to ‘get a life’ or get off the internet and ‘start adulting’ and it angers me so much. Let people enjoy themselves
I hate how there was a huge push for girl groups to conform to cute concepts last year, and now the same is happening with girl crush concepts. I’d love to see some girl groups stick with unique concepts, but it seems like they have to stick with whatever’s popular to stay relevant in a very oversaturated industry.
