They have performed SHINee5's songs at MMA, including their song "Hard".

View attachment 97567

Their performance was to be held in December, so SHINee5's drama was bound to happen there to garner attention and sympathy, lol.
It was awful. They lipsynced to all songs except Hard and even in Hard the final high note by K3y sounded strained.

i have always said or thought that some celebs or a lot of them are worth more dead than alive, watch them do mathew perry next or a life documentary on his career if not a biopic lol. i think some celebs can be depressed from their jobs and that then gives the ent industry reason to continue to profit off their passing. but celebs also sought after fame and wealth or they are born into it from thier ultra rich families. depends how much you believe they were poor once before making it big in the ent industry narratives

So, even though kpop is being marketed aggressively in the west more people listen to Japanese and French music than Korean music in the US. Proves kpop does not have many unique listeners. Its just the same people streaming the songs again and again.
tis because they ran koreans bank accounts dry and there was nothing new being released in usa and uk music charts, no one direction no beatles no elvis no michael jackson so what else would they have? foriegn music groupsnwere the next "big" thing.

do ppl still think its coincidence that kpoop has taken over the west? idols should be less diva like but if anything i think its giving the idols inflated egos. i remember the sentence that bts paved the way but there were still acts before them that did it, i just dont think its coincidence that of all "genres" it was kpoop.

Part of it is normal market forces. South Korea heavily subsidizes the Culture industry. But Gangnam Style becoming a worldwide hit wasn't an accident.

In 1990, the Korean National Assembly granted a broadcasting license to the regional Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS), becoming the first private television station since the forced nationalization of private broadcasters in 1980.[26] In December 1991, the National Assembly passed the Cable Television Act which directed the Ministry of Information to provide permits to twenty prospective cable television program providers.[26] The providers were selected in August 1993, and cable television services began in March, 1995.[26] With the liberalization of the South Korean television market, a greater number of Korean programs started to be exported abroad.[32] These media exports were first exported to China, after the two countries formally established diplomatic relations in 1992.[33]

The 1997 Asian financial crisis led broadcasters throughout East Asia to seek cheaper programs as an alternative to the expensive, but popular broadcasts from Japan.[28] In 2000, K-dramas were a quarter of the price of Japanese television programs and a tenth of the price of Hong Kong television programs.[32] K-dramas first entered the Taiwanese market during the early 1990s, but the shift to Korean television programming following the financial crisis and the successful airing of Fireworks (2000) and Autumn in My Heart (2000) marked the start of the Korean Wave in the country.[38]

The 2003 historical K-drama Jewel in the Palace has been credited for having the greatest impact on the popularity of Korean television programs in Chinese-speaking countries, including Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and China.[39] In May 2005, the show's final episode became the highest-rated television episode in Hong Kong history at more than 40 percent.[37] In the years following its release, the program was exported to over 80 countries around the world.[31]: 11  At the same time, the 2003–2004 airing of the romance K-drama Winter Sonata in Japan marked the entrance of the Korean Wave to Japan.[40]

In the Indian state of Manipur, Hindi-language movies and television channels were banned in 2000 by insurgents, leading broadcasters to use Korean programming as substitutes.[46] Korean dramas and films were also commonly smuggled into the region in the form of CDs and DVDs.[47]

By the late 2000s, K-dramas became part of the daily programming of local television channels across East Asia[48] and in China, Korean programs made up more than all other foreign programming combined.[45]: 2  During the period between 1997 and 2007, television exports from South Korea would increase from $8.3 million to $151 million, mostly to other Asian markets.[49]

The mid-2000s marked the expansion of the Korean Wave outside of East Asia into other parts of Asia, while the mid-2010s marked the Korean Wave's expansion outside of Asia into Europe, the Americas, and Africa.[74]: 4 [75] During this period, social media and platforms like YouTube, Netflix, and Webtoon played a key role in the dissemination of South Korean popular culture.[76][77]

In the United States, the Korean Wave spread outwards from Korean-American communities, most notably in New York City and Los Angeles.[80]

Now the US is attempting to replicate the success of South Korea. Geffen Records teamed up with HYBE. JYP I think teamed up with Warner Music. However I think they will have trouble, because as we've seen so far theres a culture clash. In Asia, Celebrities are expected to be model citizens, as people will try to emulate them. Theres also the work and discipline culture. And the more conservative values. Like say late 90's early 2000's America/UK had in media at the time.

I think theres going to be a problem.

i have always found that groups who seek fame and wealth in america their music takes a nosedive and honestly dips in quality and its more of just an other bandwagon that tweens and young adults are once again expected to lap up. korea pretend its conservative but the you look at the way idol groups dress and they cant fool me to assume that kpop is innocent or pure as it wanta to seem lol. literally every other group i used to like either came from uk went to america and became an utter overhyped garbage filled bandwagon then their hype fizzled out and i almsot forgot i used to like those groups lmao

South Korea is unofficially a US colony. Like the Philippines. Or Japan. It's loaded with US military bases. So South Korea is at the edge of Eastern Conservatism brushing against US progressivism. Theres lots of things that hit against the South Korean broadcast standards. But they are just people. So just like everywhere else in the world. There's always things happening under the surface.

hmmm interesting. i wonder what society wouldve turned out like if there werent rich people littered everywhere in every country. cant even buy a poprerty nowadays because 90% of the properties have gone up in prices because surprise surprise rich celebs have bought all the good ones. literally mansions up north cost more than what any normal person would ever be able to afford and its always in the most usual bog standard rich places like cheshire or hampstead. hows normal korean folk gonna afford much if all the rich celebs get all their apartments just bc theyre from wealthy families?

there isnt much posted on these forums about say footballing industry or athletes besides the ones that have passed on. seems to mostly be generic overhyped entertainers that always get the spotlight in terms of discussions. seems like all the industries are equally as fabricated as the next and it cost a fortune just to enjoy or invest in any aspect of it be it concerts, travel to and from venues and or staying overngiht somewhere to go and visit museums of those popular figures in entertainment its all fucking expensive

Sh1nee were being applauded in SK and kpop twitter yesterday for singing 1 song from their set live. I can't believe K-pop has become so shallow that so-called singers are now being applauded for "singing" live. American music is bad but at least artists sing live most of the time.

Global Real Estate issues are due to a multitude of factors.

1. Investment Firms are buying up properties as future rentals which ties into 2
2. Real Estate speculators are profiting from the Real Estate bubble
3. China has now an increasing middle class who can now afford to invest. And traditionally Asians go first for Real Estate
4. COVID caused a massive inflation of the money supply. The COVID checks were printed out of thin air.
5. Open border immigration Government policies is driving a further demand for housing.

i think it's bc no one would ever think about playing a game=evil deals behind the scenes
as opposed to the music and the acting industry where everyone is se x ualized, where there is random symbolism, and of course songs. There is a clear agenda.

Granted, the fact that so many money and such big fame is at stake for footballers should ring a bell, but personnally I initially thought sports was one harmless industry. I think it's still better to watch sports than glamourized singers. In moderation.

in some way it is only slightly cheaper to watch a sporting event over here but generally its an other expensive and generally sometimes challenging environment for example fi you ever watch derby day footage on youtube, you see how english and scottish clubs are so highly competitive and pair that with rivarly that most clubs seem to have, even football and general sports is less accessible for those who might just want to tune into something as a distraction. that with the clubs and events being able to leach money off middle class incomes given that you arent watching singers try to dance in synch but football is so hit and miss. then it depends on fans high emotional reactions a lot which i found makes the events of going to a sporting even very tiring in my experiences ofc its not that way for everyone. but overall i dont think i could invest so much into entertainmrnt anymore, its just so costly. we even looked at going to a museum for elvis in london but the train tickets were so expensive which didnt help so we decided not to do it this time. even if you wwnt to enjoy sports or music there is always going to be a downside and that is that we are not so simply having to pay a fortune to see already ready made millionaires do whatever it is they do on the off chance that they may bottle it or do a half arsed job or the celebs may or may not be around after a certain age. the cheapest way to watch sports for free is at a pub ir listen via the radio as bbc removed our rights to watch sports for free. now its all on subscriptions which dont help cost of living crisis. its 50/50 imho. neither entertainmrnt is cheap and its so fckn ridiculous how much we have to pay just to enjoy something
