Dancing in kpop is overrated, there’s just too much emphasis on dancing, I’d rather a group dance less and actually sing or just have charisma instead of dancing like a professional back dancer. I feel like groups or idols who have charisma don’t even need dancing, just like western artists, none of them dance and still their performances have more strength than kpop groups who dance like robots most of the time
I get frustrated with how there’s a hierarchy of talents with fans. I so often hear about it being fine for groups who don’t dance well because “they will learn” or talking about how they’ve improved. However if a group doesn’t debt with great vocals they get trashed and made fun of and audio clips put on repeat. Why is that not considered a skill they can improve too?
I can’t be the only one that doesn’t care about lyrics right? Like I almost never look up lyrics translations. If I like a song it’s for it’s melody, if it’s catchy or nice. That’s why the counterargument of “the lyrics are deep and very well written” people tell me when I say I don’t like a song is useless in me. I literally don’t care and won’t make me change my opinion on a song, and I think more people should understand that
Its ridiculous how often you’ll see fans claiming their groups ‘ate the cd’ during obviously lip synced performances. I’ve got nothing against lip syncing but its interesting how everyone’s an expert at distinguishing it when its time to drag other groups (like Twice, momoland, or whoevers pissed of stan twitter that week) but suddenly all that ‘expert’ knowledge goes up in smoke when it their bias doing it.
Most girl groups’ stage outfits in 2018, were pretty boring. There wasn’t much that was unique. I’m glad that 2019 is starting off with more unique stage outfits especially for WJSN’s La La Love, Dreamcatcher’s Piri, and Hwasa’s Twit.
People getting mad when 3rd gen fans call their favorite groups kings/queens of kpop is the stupidest thing I’ve heard yet. It’s just people hyping up their favorites, not some great offense to senior groups and it’s rarely something serious. It’d be like saying that 2nd gen fans can’t call their favorites kings/queens because it’s disrespectful to 1st gen groups, it’s stupid.
I dont get offended by anything that the idols do (ive never really gotten offended by anything overall), so i dont get the hate against some idols, but i do think that some things that happen behind the scenes are fucked up. And tbh im in it for the music, not the fake personalities sold to us by the companies. (Not saying every idol out there is fake)
The forced sexy expressions of idols make me cringe so hard. Half closed bedroom eyes, the slightly parted lips, and either looking up or down do not make me think “damn, that’s hot” but rather “stop trying so hard”. I also dislike this whole sticking out the tongue and biting their lip business. It just feels so unnatural to me. There are some idols who lost their appeal to me because of these things and it makes me so sad that I don’t look at them the same way as in the beginning.
One thing is clear to me from the whole Burning Sun scandal. Don’t get mixed up with clubs or bars as an idol. There is just too much potential for trouble. Open a tea house or a flower shop instead, if you must.
I wish Kpop fans would understand that cases don’t take a few days or weeks to solve because I’m always seeing comments like “Knetz/Dispatch can solve cases faster than the police” whenever a K-celebrity gets into a criminal scandal. One, real world crime cases doesn’t work like Law and Order; two, the police aren’t the ones solving crimes but lawyers and detectives, and three, cases can take years to even solve.
