I’ve never seen an idol have black hairstyles like cornrows or box braids for elegant comebacks or cute ones, it’s always for when they’re doing more edgy and bad boy/girl crush concepts. Black hairstyles are only seen as a way to look more ‘gangsta’, never as something that can be seen as beautiful and that’s why I hate it when fans say idols taking these hairstyles is because they appreciate black culture, because it is clearly seen only as a way to add ‘street cred’
I think what really makes or breaks a song for me is if the music matches the performers. e.g. seventeen/mamamoo/taemin/hyolyn you can see/feel a vibe that they all match with and it was made for those people. But when groups like twice or pristin v ect try and do a sexy mature concept they can rarely pull it off (not their fault. They’re just not sexy ppl ya know? Their personalities are cute instead). The concept doesn’t match the performers and so it doesn’t work
I don’t mind fans using antis tweets as proof for them doing being rude or whatever but I don’t get it when they use screenshots of a tweet that literally has three likes? That could easily be a troll or just a nobody who’s opinion doesn’t matter? And then the post grabs three of these screenshots with the caption “karma is a bitch” or “see ALL (fandom name) are hypocrites” etc. and everyone in the comments is “💅🏼💅🏼💅🏼” or “☕️☕️☕️” and it’s not proving anything. On top of that, I don’t know why anyone would bother saving screenshots of negative posts on the internet like do you guys not have any happy things in your life? find a hobby ? go outside maybe ?
I hate it when a successful group puts out a mini album. I understand debuting with an EP to test the waters or groups that haven’t hit it big and are struggling financially. But BTS having a mini when they have money and demand to produce a full one? Stray Kids with 4 EPs in less than a year? Blackpink still not having a full album? I know it’s all about money, but no business should be able to sell subpar products or services. I know a lot of kpop fans don’t think of kpop as a product, but it is, and as such customers should always expect to get the best quality possible. Less mini albums could also lessen the flood of comebacks and the overworking of idols.
Solo artists like Yoo Seung-woo, Sam Kim & Jeong Sewoon deserve more attention. Their voices are all so calming to listen to and their music gets better and better every comeback!
I hate fans who stan small groups and suddenly think they’re better than anyone who listens to mainstream/popular groups. it doesn’t make you more interesting sweetie.
Sometimes I feel like International fans care too much about award shows like when Signal won SOTY. Who are International fans to say what song left an impact on Korea? Or how about when izone won roty? Despite what the international opinion may be. Another current example is itzy and everglow. I just don’t like the mentality that International fans think that they are the end all be all of awards when their vote has small effect and it’s a show about Korean artists in Korean opinion.
Many people are talking about how some idols‘ vocal techniques could damage their vocal chords, but I’ve never seen people talk about how their stretching routines and backwards head rolls are so unbelievably unhealthy! Backwards headrolls are so dangerous, they can literally break off pieces of your spine! And going into low stretches right away without warming up your muscles or doing light stretches before can cause your muscles and ligaments to tear (even when you are flexible)! I know that their stretching routines in vlives are not really the real deal and they probably (hopefully) do more before they start practicing, but I can’t help but wince whenever I see it. I hope their instructors are keeping an eye on that.
There is a specific brand of girl group songs that are super eclectic and disjointed that I absolutely love. Songs like I Got a Boy, Wee Woo, I Don’t Like Your Girlfriend, Zimzalabim. I know tons of people hate them but I’m having a great time, plus the fashion is usually just as eclectic and I love that too. I’ll take interesting and new styling over safe “pretty” styling any day
I’m genuinely at the point where I hate Dispatch. Like, I get it, they’re all about posting celebrity news. However, the fact that they like to play God and choose which stories to post and when knowing it will harm either the idol or their career isn’t okay — especially since it was confirmed a few months back that they were holding a few stories about LGBT idols who weren’t out. It’s because of Dispatch that my stance on celebrities’ personal lives/relationships is: it’s NOT my business.
