Birthday by Somi is literally one of the worst songs I’ve ever heard in all my years. Its the hottest of garbage and i can’t believe that even her stans would pretend its even somewhat decent. But i was so surprised when I saw someone post her b-side Outta My Head. Not only was the song itself good but it even somehow masked her complete lack of vocal ability. Although birthday may have been more of a fitting concept with the song being that bad they would’ve been better off making outta my head the title.
Sunmi is so precious and I absolutely adore her but the one little thing she did that made me love her is when she posted a picture on her insta of a scene from an Indian movie called three idiots. I know it probably sounds stupid but I feel like as a south Asian fan, everyone overlooks us, it’s always about east Asia and the west, anything in between is completely ignored. so the simple act of her sharing that made me ridiculously happy
Taeyeon is always praised immensely for her vocal abilities (and rightfully so!), but something she never recieves enough credit for is her stage presence and her talent of delivering outstanding performances. S’ was full of fantastic performances, but i’d encourage everyone to look up fancams from her recent concerts of ‘’love you like crazy’’, ‘’stress’’, and ‘’baram x3’’ in particular, she truly shines in these performances and it’s a joy to watch her.
It really saddens me to see people throwing around that “armys have a victim complex” so shamelessly. I know that most people who say this are newer kpop stans, but they really should look into what bts and armys went through, especially in 2015-2016. I’ve never seen a group/fandom get that much hate from the community. Black oceans, numerous hateful hashtags trending, sajaegi accusations, people literally calling music and award shows and even the blue house of korea to ask for bts to be eliminated/disqualified.. There was so much hate… That’s why I feel like armys who have been here since early years have a reason to not trust other fandoms; it’s not a “victim complex”, it’s just that we got used to only being able to have ourselves and no one else.
I used to be a 4nia before 4Minute disbandment. I liked all members, but now I can’t support anyone but Hyuna. The recent 10th year anniversary was like a slap on her face. I don’t want to support people who can’t be happy for their friend’s success. I understand they felt bitter about unfair treatment by Cube, but why take it out on Hyuna who, ultimately, had no say in her becoming the most popular member? She promoted 4minute wherever she went on her solo schedule and for what? For the rest to become resentful of her? Not saying the other members deserved Cube’s bullshit, but the company can’t push them if there’s nothing to push. They’re not untalented, but the gap in skills between Hyuna and them was too big. Hyuna had a unique rapping style and great charisma; the rest were average at best in their own positions.
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 don’t get the idea that you have to like every song a group makes or you’re not a good enough fan. This applies to most groups but really I mean Red Velvet. I liked Zimzalabim, many people didn’t. I keep seeing comments saying that you should like it because it’s weird and unique and you should expect that from RV. Just because something is unique doesn’t make it good, and you don’t have to like everything they put out, it just comes with the territory of having multiple concepts.
I understand a lot of people dislike Jungkook’s vocals because it’s too breathy or weak, but he really is capable of a lot more. In fact, I feel like he has the ability to have a musical or trot stylized voice. And he has shown that. In the performance of Otsukare, his vibrato was just amazing! He is very talented, but blame the company for limiting his vocal range and not cultivating those techniques more. Unless he personally enjoys his own style, which I will still respect anyway!
Mixtape #STAY was a cute idea and all but the overspam of comments telling Chan to listen to it while he’s on vlive is too much/ kind of cringey. He’s probably already listened to it and how he feels about it may or may not be why he won’t listen to it while he’s live-streaming.
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.
