Beanie level: Wrongly accused fugitive

So apparently there was a strong rumour that T.O.P dated Shin minha. Well! given She is dating Kim Woo bin, I can see the similarity!
Is it just be.. or these two have a lot in common (the boys i mean

Fandoms and their logic is very interesting! Reading when GD lamented on the flip side of this stardom and most of the comments are on how he should reflect upon his bankbalance. They are actually telling him to quit and become a salaryman and acting as if all that money has come for free.
So, here’s the thing… a celebrity works on his composition, practices it day and night and performs it. You as audience respond positively only when you enjoy it! Then, exactly whom are you throwing your rubbish attitude towards? On the contrary, You, the fan, is studying or working purely for your own means… so on what level does that get justified as hard work and celeb’s/any rich person’s effort become a luxury?

FYI, includes beauty.. somebody has to work hard to look good.. being lazy and sloppy is easy

      he he.. no like officially .. where i get to plan and do things

      However, to be honest, after posting this, I realized almost all idols have a sad backstory, a lot of hard work and sacrifice phase, and most of them are nice kids. Plus, true talent are groups like Big Bang who create their own stuff, and the most of the girl groups are mediocre talent.

      Then i also realized, despite my likeness for the actor D.O and entertainer Baekhyun, i absolutely don’t like EXO for the snobs they are, especially the guy on that outside of my blanket variety show season 1, rather he is the one why i don’t even care to know about who other members are in EXO

I don’t think I can ever understand these fans! When Bom took prescriptive drugs that contained a banned substance and got it couriered, she had to end her career and YG immediately rubbed his hand off her; But when TOP does that then fans trend “Don’t worry, Be Strong” 😊 .. people are ridiculous

    I don’t think the same “fans” who shunned Bom for her drug “scandal” would support TOP for his marijuana use either. They’re probably not even the same fans. Nonetheless, it is an unfortunate double standard :/ both by the public and YG itself. Bom’s use wasn’t even recreational like TOP’s, yet she suffered such backlash.

      well, it is highly probable that there is an overlap.. an absolute non overlap is the least possiblity..

      and for the non overlapping ones, they aren’t doing a good job of being opposition either when they really felt so strongly about it back then.. i believe drug scandal happened with GD too but well they got away with some cock and bull story..

lol.. have spent a good 6 hours browsing videos of reactions of idols on other idols.. and i am pleasantly surprised to see…. how many videos are dedicated to Lisa and the boys 🙂 .. reminds me of yoona and the boys.. but I love lisa so I like this more 😊 (and honestly I thought everyone would be fangirling irene or twice.. )

and ( again is it me) BTS doesn’t seem to interact much with other groups ( ofcourse groups from same agency hang out together, but was there a time that they got famous internationally but weren’t as famous back home?) I usually find them not reacting too much to girl groups also.. they are usually very professional in that sense and happy in their own world of 7 people .. cute.. however in their own backstage video I can see what a wonderful variety presence they have with all the fun

So, after 2ne1, I spent a fair amount of day browsing through so called idol kpop. Its disappointing. Most of the groups are 1 song wonder. Drama OSTs, soloists, duos, and other type of Korean music is just so much more interesting and consistently good. 2NE1 – I’m the best, BP – playing with fire, Twice – cheerup and tt everything else is such a mashup of similar tunes and mvs are stupidly juvenile… GG – a couple of good songs that’s it….boy bands same..like all of them… one song wonders.. I think it does come down to the beauty packaging around these idols specially girl groups (because boy group MVs atleast serve as dancing videos)…. Pity if people rather Koreans don’t appreciate their other artists who are actually good

    Hi @alasecond. That’s really harsh. It’s completely cool if you don’t like K-pop or think only one or two songs from each group/artist are good; but it’s not fair to say that it’s a pity that others – whether Korean or not – don’t appreciate their own artists “who are actually good”. Since you know many of us here LOVE K-pop and have our own biases, likes and dislikes, I ask you to be a little more respectful about others’ choices.

    *I feel very strongly about this since K-pop is too often dismissed harshly by those who don’t see more than what is on the surface.* *Considered not responding at all, and I won’t after this*

    14

      No.. i don’t think i am being harsh.. i am being rather polite… given how much of a marketing gimmick kpop is, if we are comparing it only on the quality of music. Not to forget all of this is creating undue pressure on young kids to succeed, do plastic surgery, and whatnot. You have people is group who are relatively not so talented but are recruited for VISUALS 🙂 .. and the fact if there is this mindnumbing concept shows there is audience out there that laps it up.. Also, whether you like it or not, you can’t deny facts. These people make more money than other sections and for what? How much of the love for music is driven by actual music appreciation and not all the hullabaloo around it… sorry but very clearly marketing has and is playing a huge role..

      0

        Marketing is meant to bring the “product” to your attention. Whether you buy it or not is up to you – and hopefully you look at the substance. I like to think I do. As would most other K-pop fans.

        I don’t know what facts you’re looking at but facts are very subjective – the viewer sees what he/she wants & ignores the rest. I daresay the music industry in other parts of the world isn’t much better than the idol industry.

        Regardless, we agree to disagree. I stand by my love of K-pop and you stand by your contempt for it.

        9
        1

          Marketing isn’t meant to bring product to your attention. It is delicate science, deliberately used to manipulate your senses. Now, whether you give in or not sure.. as an adult onus is on you.
          If i were to play these songs on radio with other genres and never show you the face of the “product” how many of these hits would have really become hits?

          Also, most of the kpop genre appears to be targeting teenagers and youngsters with a lot of objectification of the artists. This age group of audience is not what i would pass off with the remark of “take responsibility for your choice”.
          ****************
          Facts are never subjective. Facts are facts. Undeniable. I am just talking about underappreciation and impact this culture of kpop has on actual quality of music. Pressure to earn bucks is immense, agencies go all out on their artists and on feeding fandoms… as a result if other artists don’t earn enough in comparison they will revert to similar “concepts” of music.

          Am I to believe that girls should only do these bubblegum genres and their role is to basically keep looking cute in short skirts because that is what gets 100 million views and the fan groups multiplying and expanding because of a positive spin on social hysteria? Not that i like all of IUs songs.. but atleast she gets to experiment but how many other soloists managed that (and if I trace IUs beginnings there is a lot of look factor there too)

          You are right.. pop in general.. the more i read about it.. more it seems to be driven and pumped by the glamour than actual talent (comparatively of course)

          0
          0

      and the fact that all these groups have their own variety shows to promote themselves goes that extra mile to show that it is less about music over selling fantasies and personal connection.. rather towards creating die hard fans.. and well once you are a fan, majority are bound to like, defend, exaggerate the output produced by the object of affection (this fan theory is pretty much valid for anyone .. not just kpop)…
      ***********
      On the other hand, if there are people out there who started listening to the music and kept falling for it without being caught up in that rigmarole of cosmetic aspects of kpop…then they are in better position to assess the situation between various artists (agency factor products Vs individualists).. and music genres , sub-genres .. and it will always be a sad situation where talent goes unnoticed and cosmetics get hyped up and lapped up by the audience

    No offense, but you sound absolutely ignorant. Also you don’t need to add “….” after every sentence. That out of the way, let me clear somethings for you in reference to my faves.
    2NE1 I am the best? It’s the most popular one but it’s not the only song. Have you heard of FIRE? I DON’T CARE? LONELY? Come Back Home? Falling in Love? If I were you? Because these are some of their most popular and best selling songs. Their last album CRUSH is one of the best kpop albums to date, I suggest you give it a listen.
    BLACKPINK’s most successful song yet is Whistle not Playing With Fire, and DDU DU DDU DU just snatched that crown. They’re definitely not a one hit wonder. “MVs are stupidly juvenile” please google DDU DU DDU DU MV Meanings and you’ll see your “stupidly juvenile MV” as an example. Kpop MVs are so MUCH more, understanding the MVs depend on how much information the viewer can absorb.
    Also GG dances? Do checkout Gfriend, Blackpink, Red Velvet, SNSD. Want to see GG talent? Check out (current batch of GGs) MAMAMOO, RED VELVET, BLACKPINK, GFRIEND (so many more I did not mention)
    Also, you (conveniently) did not mention SELF producing groups like my faves- BIGBANG, WINNER, iKON and Epik High.
    Kpop groups have ALWAYS been consistently good when it comes to music releases. It’s a cutthroat industry. One fail song and it all goes down the drain.
    Ffs, don’t come after Kpop and DON’T come after girlgroups. They get enough hate as it is. Don’t like it? Skip it. Not only are you commenting on a topic you’re completely ignorant about, you’re inciting fanwars too.
    Koreans LOVE both indie artists as well as kpop groups. Marketing is important because this IS an industry, but it’s not everything, Kpop idols are some of the most talented vocalists/dancers in the world.
    Sorry if I sound rude, Kpop artists get enough hate as it is, and GGs get the most hate. You’re welcome to state an opinion and I’m welcome to state some facts in reference to your opinion.

      You are so off topic. You are counting which songs and albums have made money. I don’t even know how to even take this discourse further. Yes, what you are saying is the outcome of the problem. Thank you for confirming my doubts.

      I would welcome the facts you state .. on the topic. What do i do with knowledge of your favs and who made money on which song. The problem is that bigger the fandom, despite the quality of the album, it will be a hit. Agree or not… that’s just how things have been working

        (Ah yes, another typical know-it-all-kpop-crtisicm-keyboard-warrior. “Kpop is all about the money! The visuals! It’s just a huge market! The Music? It’s trash! They’re just products, their music has no soul! The fans are dumb & crazy and like to attack people who say anything against it!”)
        I’ll just reply to some of your points.
        “Fandom isn’t about music anymore”
        Here’s a thought, fandoms are ALL about the music. Most kpop groups aren’t successful while performing sub-par songs with zero production value and no musical ability/talent. Kpop has produced some of the best music in the world, and this isn’t a biased opinion.
        If you’re looking for an example: there’s BIGBANG. They had “no visuals” at their debut and were a huge “flop” but went on to become one of the biggest boybands in the world. So how’d that happen? Oh yes wait, that’s right, it was their self produced MUSIC that brought them to the center stage. Their fandom, like most kpop fandoms, became what it is today because of their music, which has not failed their fandom OR the general public and has been consistently good for the past 12 years. Bigbang isn’t an exception in this case, they’re the norm.
        “The bigger the fandom, despite the quality of the album, it will be a hit.”
        This isn’t true at all. Give a listen to the big fandom groups out there: BIGBANG, EXO, BLACKPINK, BTS, RED VELVET etc. Their albums are amazing. Like I said it’s a cutthroat industry, these groups don’t have the option of releasing “bad quality music”. All it takes is one flop for their careers to end. The higher you are, the greater the fall. These groups don’t focus on their title tracks only, most of the songs on their albums are great. Admittedly, what one person likes the other may dislike. So how do you classify “good” vs “bad” music? (I like to refer to the React to the K channel where musicians break down the music and explain it in a way that most people can understand.)
        “I would welcome the facts you state .. on the topic. What do i do with knowledge of your favs and who made money on which song”
        I was stating the songs to counter your “one-hit wonder” statement. At the same time, I expected you to check out said songs and comeback to me and give me an opinion then. (Tbh, I thought you may say that none of them are “good quality” songs, which is obviously not true seeing the ratings critics/general public have given them.) When I mentioned 2ne1’s album CRUSH I was not talking about how much money it made, I was talking about how each track is amazing and how the album was HUGE success musically. Same with Blackpink. This isn’t about how much money the groups make, it’s about the fact that Kpop music IS amazing, & does not deserve to be called “a marketing gimmick” when it’s SO much more. Just because you don’t see it/hear it doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

          By the way, I wasn’t attacking you in any shape or form. You have not bothered to check out their music beyond a couple of tracks, and yet you have a “bad opinion” of their music which you state as though it’s a fact. Like um, really? If anything, THAT’s an attack and I’m free to defend their music/musical ability.

            I asked you a simple question and you completely ignored that and are beating the bush and trying to blame me.

            Let me rephrase it for you:
            Do you think these composers would earn similar amount for their compositions if not for these idol faces and personalities?
            How much impact does the cosmetic have in you appreciating the music at its face value?
            Would half of these songs be as popular if they were done by someone unknown?

            If you have context then try to debate.. if all

            0
            0

          Okay.
          “Do you think these composers would earn similar amount for their compositions if not for these idol faces and personalities?”
          That depends on their compositions but mostly the answer is yes. Go look at all the major Korean charts, idols don’t dominate them you’ll find a lot of amazing music.
          “How much impact does the cosmetic have in you appreciating the music at its face value?”
          None. When I’m streaming, I’m listening to the damn music. I’m listening to their voices and following the lyrics to the best of my understanding. It’s only when I’m watching the music video that the “cosmetic” aspect has some value and even then it doesn’t out weigh the rest. Nobody is it in it only for the pretty.
          “Would half of these songs be as popular if they were done by someone unknown?”
          Largely depends on the song but again mostly yes. Prime example: Bigbang’s Lies, they were completely unknown at the time of the release. I don’t need to state what a huge success Lies was. So yes, most of the big releases now would be popular even if they were done by unknown artists.
          Please don’t reply back with statements like that’s just how you look at it, most people are in it for the pretty and that Kpop is all about the money. Because no, in reality, most fandoms are not in it for the pretty. The pretty is just a damn plus point.
          I will not be replying after this. Please stay FAR away from Kpop and go enjoy what you like. Stop belittling things that people enjoy. Kpop has changed my life for the better, (I don’t care if that sounds pathetic) and the same applies for so many out there. If you see Kpop as a money making gimmick that’s all about the visuals and has no musical soul, then I feel sorry for you because you’re missing out big time. Also, literally nobody is getting hyper/sensitive, I’m just out here defending what I love. Geez.

    I don’t think you need to worry about Koreans (or anyone really) appreciating idols. Yes, of course they are picked for looks but they all have talent. It’s not like other countries like the US where a lot of singers aren’t that good without computer enhancement.

    You don’t have to like kpop, which is your right. Just like it’s others rights to like them.

    Obviously groups are more than one hit wonders, seeing there are insanely popular groups that are selling out concerts and albums. Of course the groups are marketed, each group becomes basically a brand when they are hugely popular.

    Of you don’t like Kpop then don’t like it but that doesn’t give you the right to criticize the people that do, saying that they don’t like talent. These hugely popular groups wouldn’t be WITHOUT talent.

      ah!.. i did mention in my comment.. to someone else who raised the point. The phenomenon isn’t korean or US. I guess we can say it is true to a great extent. Infact i have been thinking about it. You can apply that concept to dramas too. Theatre isn’t doing well, good actors aren’t. Plethora of bad actors out there and their fandom keeps bolstering their career.

      I wonder why are you folks getting over hyper. It isn’t about liking or not liking kpop. Its about Kpop overshadowing and questioning the legitimacy of every song being heralded as some ground breaking earth shattering musical invention, which it isn’t but the sales figures say otherwise.. and that is sad.

      Precisely my point, if bingle bangle ( this is one example) was played by a rookie group from a small agency vs a big name as aoa. If this song was played on radio without telling you who it is from? The point is simple, in kpop genre, mvs and cosmetics play a huge part.. HUGE part. Is audience appreciating the music all the time or is it the fantasy?

      You need to get your perspective right. I am not criticizing anyone particular, merely stating an observation but you guys are jumping the gun and making this out to be more personal than it really is…

      If i were to follow your rationale, no one can ever criticize government, politicians, bad art content, journalists, terrorists.. or whatever..

    I think they sound the same because both groups have the same producer…that’s Teddy’s sound not BP or 2EN1. I think BP should have a different producer, so these kind of things don’t happen because the groups are in the same company (well 2EN1 is disbanded tho)..It’s a shame really, I hope they’ll find their own unique sound without being compare… for the rest of your comment I can´t say anything ’cause I don’t follow those companies…

    I never really understood how people find 2ne1 and Blackpink similar to the point where they call BP a copy.
    A female group of four members, same producer, same company. A dual rapper/singer is present. That’s it. That’s all they have in common.
    I’m just gonna state and counter-state some stuff I’ve read that explains why BP is 2ne1 ver 2.
    Dara vs. Jisoo: Supposedly least talented members, they’re also visuals, got into the group cuz of their faces etc. Counter: Dara has a very sweet/nasally voice, while Jisoo’s voice is deeper (& huskier) than some male idols. Jisoo is the superior vocalist among the two, but Dara’s voice is extremely unique. Either way, both are much more than “just visuals”.
    Rap: Lisa’s rapping style is similar to GDs, especially when it comes to pronunciation. CL is way different compared to Lisa and Jennie too for that matter. The lazy rap with a different pronunciation is classic GD which Lisa tends to follow, whilst the deep voiced and fast rap is TOP’s style which Jennie follows. CL’s rap is neither, she has some aspects of both but her rap is different.
    Rose/Bom as main vocalists: Rose has better range, but Bom’s voice is more soulful. Both are beautiful vocalists tho and have unique voices.
    Finally, their positions in the group: Many people say that BP is a copy because they’ve got a visual/vocalist (Dara), a main vocalist with a unique sound (Bom), a dual rapper and vocalist (CL) and a main dancer (Minzy), just like 2ne1. Here’s the thing tho, the positions don’t apply to BP. All four are good enough to be main dancers, Lisa is good enough to be a lead vocalist, Jisoo and Rose are good enough to be sub-rappers, and all four are visuals. Just going by their musical ability and overall look, feel and performance they couldn’t be any more different from 2ne1.
    And then there’s the music. When it comes to music, 2NE1 had such a raw feel, whilst BP feel like a polished product. Their music works well for the respective groups. Where 2ne1 focused on charisma, BP focus on dual concepts. Where 2ne1 had superior stage presence and performance, BP has superior dancing skills. Both groups are talented vocals wise, but their ranges couldn’t be any more different.
    This is an opinion, not an attack.

      its been in news for almost a year and the teasers and trailers have been out for almost since jan.. the production quality looks good, lead actress is good.. the boys are good looking.. acting wise we will have to see…

      for the first time i think i may not have second lead syndrome (going strictly by the looks of it)… and this one has to be the most handsome lead of BoF across all versions

        I’ve been on drama hiatus up until recently so I hadn’t heard about it. I’ll give it a chance, I’ve been watching lots of c-dramas lately anyways. I just feel like there’s not really anymore that can be done with the story given how many adaptations it’s already had, but maybe I’ll be proven wrong.

          lol this is not the drama you watch for a story 😛 .. its teenage fantasy that the drama offers on the plot.. 2 super perfect men dying and vying for your love 🙂

          anyway.. any good c-drama you can suggest.. really good.. like a love so beautiful or addiction? 020 nah!.. the peach blossom thingies also nah .. preferably modern setting and coherent

            Hmm… Since you liked A Love so Beautiful, you’ll probably like With You and My Mr. Mermaid (both youth dramas). Boss and Me is also good. If you are cool with crime/thriller I also liked When a Snail Falls in Love and Love Me If You Dare. Moonshine and Valentine and My Amazing Boyfriend are modern fantasy, if that’s fine.

            With You is really good, great direction, cinematography is gorgeous, great acting, one of the best youth dramas imo. Mermaid has some very green acting in places, so you might want to put it lower of the list, I felt it focused a bit too much on the sports rivalry for my taste at least. I just started Moonshine, not very far in it, but I’ve heard mostly good things from others (except for the ending) and I’m enjoying it so far. Boss and Me is excellent, just a really well plotted romcom from start to finish. Amazing BF I really liked although acting is a bit green and not so good pacing, but the ending sucks. Maybe With You>Boss & Me>Mermaid>Amazing BF>Moonshine?

I guess this is what happens when you work with seniors.
Junho’s acting comes across so over the top and unsharpened in front of others.. whereas he was really good in JBL, or maybe he just doesn’t get this character.. he is like male candy version.. just shouting ,, some charm is amiss..
Anyhow, the show is good 😊

    Well , Junho was pretty amazing when he was in chief Kim and he was working with seniors too so I don’t think that’s the problem but I agree there’s something missing in his character and I don’t like poong and how clingy he is to Dal Hee even after knowing all what she has done , I have faith in him though so I really hope he gets better in the upcoming episodes.

    He wasn’t that good in Chief Kim also imo, I liked his character there but I wasn’t too impressed with his acting. Just Between Lovers had the same PD with The Package who managed to bring the best out of Jung Yonghwa and Lee Yeon Hee, so yeah that explains a lot. Here, I don’t understand and don’t care about Junho’s character, and started to get annoyed. I like you Junho, so I’m trying my best to like your character.

    I adored Junho in JBL but he’s not doing much for me here. I think it’s mostly the character though. He’s been written as a pretty typical clichéd k-drama hero so far. I think Junho is capable of more so hopefully the character gets more interesting.

Amongst
– Go back spouses
– Here to heart
– Love’s lies
– Husband ok jak do
– Noona
– Live (ep 13 onwards.. have started thrice and dropped it)
– Nirvana (got stuck at ep 8.. not riveting at this point atleast, when will some big twist happen to make me fall in love with this.. although it is clearly a well made drama)
– Also recently found out.. we have boys over flowers season 2.. hana dan.. but well after ep 1.. no motivation really..

What should I pick? Badly need an addictive drama.. is nobody making another version of itazura na kiss ☹

@boradori90 @raonah If Lee Yoo-bi confirms, “A Poem a Day” would be her first drama in three years. For Lee Joon-hyuk, it would be his first lead role, and Gong Myung would be starring in his fourth tvN drama.
