This is seriously the hardest review I've ever had to do on AKF. There's nothing to make fun of, the song is good, Shinhwa doesn't have any worthless members, etc. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut I heard of a video from Eat Your Kimchi that discusses Shinhwa.
Okay, I'll first start off by telling everyone that I hate Simon and Martina. They're just like the dumb fangirls I hate and are an embarrassment to any Westerner who likes Kpop. Okay, they're an embarrassment to mankind. Now let's get to the video.
The stupidity coming from Simon's mouth just baffles me. He sounds exactly like a 12-year-old fangirl. If he actually paid attention to the Korean entertainment world, he'd know that Shinhwa aren't just relevant in the past. The members have all branched out and done solo activities.
Then he talks about the song title. Yeah, we know most Koreans can't say Venus properly, but if he had actually listened to the song, they said "Venus", not "penis."
Lastly he talks about how many requests they had for Shinhwa and for other boy bands. First of all, knowing that Shinhwa has been around for 14 years, the logical deduction would be that the majority of the fans are in their 20s and 30s, you know, people with a life. He talks about how SHINee caused their servers to go down. Well yeah, no shit. Most of SHINee's fans are 12 years old and only got into Kpop after 2009 after the Hallyu (for music) exploded. There aren't many Shinhwa fans that are 12. Most of Shinhwa's fans got into Kpop well before the Hallyu started affecting music. Furthermore, most Shinhwa fans don't watch Eat Your Kimchi. Being over 20 years old, I have second-hand embarrassment watching their videos. I'm sure most people that are Shinhwa fans don't watch a Kpop show catered to 12-year-old international fangirls.
It's fine that they don't like the song. I personally think it's the best idol song to come out in ages. Shinhwa comes from the era where groups weren't filled with useless members. It's not like the 4th generation idol groups where the group is lucky to even have one member that can sing and another member that can dance.
Simon and Martina can continue acting like their target base for all I care. They can enjoy EXO releasing another 45 fucking teasers and debuting in 2035, but I'll just enjoy Shinhwa coming back with a modern sound, showing how much better Kpop would sound if most of the new groups weren't filled with filler members.
