Whoa I didn't know K@i had shared this. I doubt the members were alone when doing these underwear dance practices smh. There are always these pre debut stories that come up from successful groups that are highly questionable. B*s had quite a few of them involving showering if I recall. And I mention successful because as we know most trainees never make it. A lot of them end up in severe debt and in the world of pr0stitution. Someone once posted a documentary on here about it.
These are the success stories and they're practicing in their underwear, sleeping around for money, and using drugs in the case of another company. The ones who don't make it, and idols from tiny groups are going through worse if this happens at the big four. There needs to be awareness groups reaching out to kids before they sign up or listen to this music. Anyone who warned about it would be an enemy of the state. The new president held a press conference with kpop companies. Imagine an American, Mexican, British or Japanese president holding a press conference with the entertainment industry. Music and videos are the opiate to control societies.

Yeah it was weird. I'm not even surprised they were hating on another girl group. Like if you're going to sh!t talk about one group then give that same energy for all of them Kpop groups lol...they're all the same persona cutouts anyway.

Since they still stan a group, their opinions on Kpop will be biased and therefore insignificant in any critical discussion. I feel this way about any member on here that proudly claims they stan a group or member...I'm inclined to press that ignore button on those accounts.
99.9999 percent of groups and artists are the same. Even in America, it's the same and there's no originality. My faves lost any appeal when I realized even their jokes are a copy of an older group. That's why most shows are a reboot of older popular shows or a spin off.

Dating rumours with it girl Jinnie is so necessary fot tea right now. Makes him look less fruity especially after those p@ris photos were released. He is quickly losing his pretty boy looks and handsome… he is not. Being super fruity makes him look extra bad.

She said that dynamite,and butter are lazy trashy pop songs,and boys too shameful became a brand,and she called their diets starvation.
She has a brain,she explained the parasocial relationship,the craziness of fans,and she is not afraid to tell her opinion.She stopped being *rmy,and she talked about the downfall of qualità in their music.
There is also part 2
14.20 She talks about infantilization of boys too shameful,and fetishization of asians,and the drastic change of their music since mots persona

Kpop is a business, and an important one for South Korea. Is the main thing why South Korea is known in the world. Yeah yeah, cosmetics, tech and cars....but people doesn't get interested in a country because of that. Before the hallyu, few people had interest in SK. Something similar happened to Japan with anime and manga.

Has anyone seen this? It's predebut NJ and Z8co. I'm posting part of it. He got a start in the underground scene because of this song.

Reality like fucking shit
My life is just scribbles with a part of it erased
The broken pieces that are endless no matter how I try to gather them up
These things corner me even more
The darkness that seems to want to kill me strangles my neck
Uh fuck that
My fucking worthless choices that fail
The endless war
The kids who are pushing me around like they want to castrate me should shut up quickly
I won’t go easily
Like thunderstorm in snow, it only seems like I’m letting it go easily
After dissing like wack
Suddenly to work on clearing my head to the reality that tightens around me
What the hell am I?
I try to innocently go my way but it’s not easy
[Verse 2: Nakseo]
Because I’m living a useless life, today is again shitty
Making work of repeating this, amongst excited expressions
The daily life inserted passes with no effort or significance
But let’s at least not to lose my source of bread and butter
I hammer home, and walk, and the shitty way you talk
Might as well jerk off and go to sleep, fuck
Today’s compass is fiery efforts in studying
Dedication, must we really with late night studies
Acting as slaves to notebook and pen
My bio-rhythm slowed to nothing, I can’t seem to fix it
My terrible lifestyle comes out even in my rap, causing trouble
Your middle-schooler souls that got beaten up are so pitiful
It’s never easy, after the gamble that never falls
Did you imagine what would come out?
If you knew, you were early to be bright
Go get fucked, Fuck you
If you still don’t know, Everybody Attention


Here's btees predebut tracks. Most of it was NJ. No wonder he feels stifled and lost. He got stuck in an idol group and ended up singing the last three songs. He's rich beyond his dreams and lost what he cared about. Money makes you comfortable but can't comfort your soul.

The difference is Japan doesn't market their entertainment. It's for Japanese eyes and weaboos gave them free promotion in the West. Korea has put billions into getting the West hooked on the music, entertainment and culture of south Korea. It's worked but it's harming people. Kpop takes the addictive parts of song, choreography, puts in fujoshis and queerbaiting, pandering to sexual fantasies and pretend romance. That's a toxic brew sold to the most vulnerable people.

We know Kyu Soon doesn't love us, but tell that to Harriet in marketing who's gone on 12 tinder dates, and if one more guy tries to touch her, she's going to scream. Mark in middle school can't ask the cute girl out but his bias still loves him. They feed fantasies to people at their lowest. A lot of kpop fans credit idols and groups with helping, healing or saving them. Never mind that oppar and unnie are racist, sexist, and hate foreigners, they're buying a fantasy.

at least you have some really good animes and mangas tho
they deserve that popularity because they have quality

i cant say the same thing about kpop tbh, thats just a copy of western music and trends, there is nothing unique about it .

Japanese creators are very unique and creative, very different to the rest of the world in some ways. They are also very hard-working but it has come at a cost. No offense but SK to me seems like they have some deep modern complexes, especially against Japan and western countries and it shows in their pop culture. By west i mean the Eurocentric west. It is understandable though given their recent history.

Anime has so many good stories and they use western influences in an interesting and respectful way. Kpop is not on the same level.

I think Koreans have an inferiority complex towards Japan and America because they're responsible for their economic boom. We invested and left army bases, and Japan made reparations multiple times. That's not letting us or them off the hook, because Japan committed war crimes even worse than Germany and we dropped two nukes.

Entertainment is basically that, selling fantasies.

Like any other entertainment thing nowadays. Western entertainment these days is crap, and let's not talk about the obvious propaganda that it is.
They feed fantasies to people at their lowest
They feed fantasies so people buy them. It's a business. The thing is, many of those are teens, and many times don't know distinguishing between fantasy and reality.

Good point, although anime has been declining in popularity.

Many adults can't distinguish reality from fantasy either. I read stories of Armys in their 20-40s and up. They got into btees because something was lacking in their life or a bad relationship with their partner. Idols are the perfect boyfriend or girlfriend. They won't complain, unlimited content means they're always available, and they love you no matter. Except it's fake and they're as real as a cardboard cutout. Western media is a lot of propaganda but it's not a foreign nation indoctrinating another country's population.

True, American entertainment (movies and t.v.) has been horrible for decades. Most mainstream music has been crap since 1995 post grunge scene. As far as the U.K. etc they had a better run than us with producing good entertainment for awhile there but even they have gone downhill.

And propaganda in American entertainment has always been there. Let me sum up a typical Hollywood blockbuster movie:
White arrogant American heterosexual male saves the world from Armageddon.
White American (skinny and usually blonde) female is an annoying smart a** that is supposed to be so strong, yet always ends up in the male leads arms.
(If there is some racial diversity)..
Black character: Always the side loud mouthed sassy friend that is only there to uplift white characters and give one liners that aren't funny.
Any other person of color character: The butt of all jokes (always some joke about their accent etc. If male: they're emasculated..If female: sexualized.)
And this is why I don't bother going to the movie theaters!

As far as Korean entertainment including Kpop, I personally don't like to do the whole whattaboutism thing. Like for example I've seen repeatedly people say: "SK media might be bad, but what about the US?" It's like comparing a cat turd to a dog turd, both are sh!t at the end of the day.

instead he is just there....waiting for what exactly? all the idols from 92 are already enlisted
and JN had the excuse of "bt5 are touring" before but what now?
