Wonder Girls bomb in Japan

Well, I guess Nobody wanted to listen to the Wonder Girls in Japan. They got to the 14th spot on the Oricon chart and only sold 7,460 copies of their album.

    1. Adele's a fat bitch and that's the main reason why she has fans. Fat girls finally have a heifer to look up to.

    2. If not sarcasm:
      The only reason Adele is popular and sells, is because people are shallow and selfish. She sings cliché heartbreak songs, but that doesn't matter, because the only reason they listen to her is because of some self-redemption bullshit (this is the ME generation after all). It's the same principle with Adalia Rose; People praising someone to feel good about themselves, because the people they praised are uglier/dumber/fatter etc. "OMG SHES BEUTIFUL!!1 BUT SHES NOT CUZ SHES FAT THOUGH SHE IS!".

      If sarcasm: 9/10. You win. Jimmies are über-rustled.

    3. I think people like Adele because she is actually a good singer. I had no idea watch she looked like when first listen to her, but i'm just one fat bitch enjoying the music of another fat bitch. But i still hear other people ripping(men and women) on her for her weight and the still listen to her. I don't think people care what she looks like because she can sing like that but then again i think most of her fans are older and past age where looks matter in the artist. Where WG audience is younger and looks and "talent" matter. Nobody was a really annoying song to me and was done in like every language and wasn't the best choice. Sohee is so meh, i don't get the hype over her and Lim's face is just so weird to look at it just freaks me out. They need better songs and more Yubin for anyone in other countries to ever try and give a shit about them

    4. I don't hate fat people because the majority that I've known are actually pretty nice to me, but what I hate are those fatties who hate on others who are skinnier. Though Adele may now be a freaking millionaire and has one heck of a good voice, she is exactly the same. She says that she doesn't need all that primp and make-up like other SKINNY girls (eg. Paris Hilton, Blake Lively, Jessica Alba) and doesn't want to appear on Vogue (she then ended up on the cover, HYPOCRITE). Whenever I tell others that, they fire cannons of 'SHE IS BEAUTIFUL', 'LOOKS DON'T MATTER', 'YOU DON'T LOOK ANY BETTER and 'SHE'S JUST DOING WHAT SHE LOVES' at me. What's funny is that those people are also fatties who are delusional fans of hers. *Sigh* It's the same for Sohee and Lim, that's why I'm always here on AKF, where I have people who agree with me that Sohee is nowhere near pretty.

    5. im a healthy fit dude. donno she was fat when she sings
      i like her songs
      i dont liek "rumor has it"
      come on akf do you hate all the mainstream artist?

      Delete
    6. I didn't know that. i don't really look in to her that much because i only like a few songs of hers. Some artist mainstream and k-pop just just sing their songs and shut the hell up, they just make themselves look like assholes. And sadly in every group of people thin/fat/black/white/asian/and everything in between their are going to been people like that. I heard stuff like that from a friend who is like obsessed with her (and very thin if it matters) and defends her like that when people compare her to other popular US artist. But she's also in the category of the delusional k-pop fan as well.

    7. Only that Infamist seems to scathingly hate her. I don't get why people have to chalk on others with their poorly-evaluated judgements based on just a few songs when an entire album has more to offer. Not everything is mainstream is good; not everything underground is good.

    8. @Dong Young Bear I rarely listen to American mainstream music. It's just not my cup of tea. I mainly listen to classic rock. I'll listen to mainstream music just to know the artists that my friends talk about, but that's really it.

      "poorly-evaluated judgements based on just a few songs"
      >Implying I didn't listen to her album
      >Implying that I couldn't NOT like it.
      I don't even hate her. The people that suffer from the self-redemption thing? Sure. Adele as she is? I don't "like" her, that's for sure, but that's about where it stops. I never even mentioned my feelings on her, only on the fanbase. Though if you want it: She's overrated.

      On WG: Japan's pop-culture is shallow, and as the article pointed out, WG just aren't aesthetically marketable enough to make it. Their songs aren't even particularly good.

      I throw rock horns at your direction. But for someone who is a 'classical rock' listner you know Adele music is the foundation of yours. Blues and jazz pretty much brought forth the convertion of rock and metal. I mean the first major rock guitarist was Chuck Berry but because he was black wasn't given the credit.
      Adele can actually sing pretty fucking well compare to I don't majority of your kpop and jpop stars.
      But hey brah whatever floats your boat. Personal I listen to doom,death,thrash,some progressive,alternative and industrial. Let's not forget black metal. I love that shit. Norway has the lowest captia of murders yet the disturbing cookie monster paganistic music exist there. I'm sure nobody on this site really listen to that type of music.

      @infamist
      ANYONE who becomes famous is overrated. I can say moltey crue is overrated. Kiss is overrated. Fucking guns n' roses is overrated.metallica is overrated. Except for anthrax my bias never overrated.

    11. Since she has some attitude problem thinking she's a morally superior to skinny people, I call douche. She could say "I don't think of my appearance as a liability" and it'd be ok, but the way she said it is just retarded and makes her self-centered.

    12. @akf : ouh okay .ppl got their own taste. hipster..

      oh the typical "my bias isnt overrated liek ur faves"

    13. Adele voice sounds bad tone quality. Bleh

    14. @lumpor
      Uh she is influence by an older generation of singer hun. Like Arthea Franklin and she wasn't skinny. I think that statement went way over your head.

      @u-knowwhohasmantits
      Eh to what ever floats your boat. I like her voice just reminds me of older blues.

    15. She have emotion and talent but not really my type. Plus she sound same live as she do in studio.

  4. It's not like it would've mattered, but it'd be nice if they came out with a song that targets the Japanese audience instead of rehash-ing Nobody into a new language. But it wouldn't have mattered anyways. JYP needs to focus on one stage and not try to slather WG on 10 different countries at once. They are just getting shitted on no matter where they go. What happened to "the nations girl group"?

  8. I guess rule 1 for aspiring groups is to never release something with a title that has to do with 'nugu' or else you be one?

    1. Plus, Nobody is hands down one of the flattest song I've heard from Hanguk pop. Even Sesame Street can pull off the song. Choreo is also preschool. No wonder? Wonder Girls! Probably it garnered much attention because that's one of the very few things Korea could offer before at that time.

  11. It's not about looks, there are shitloads of successful fugly Jpop acts - ever seen Koda Kumi without make-up? Even uglier than CL.

    WG have the wrong style for Japan. They've got a small but growing fanbase in the US, that's the market they should concentrate on.

    1. Thats because they dont get PS. Only the Jpop male do. But i mean Kpop idols are also ugly w/ out ps. And most are ugly with ps. *cough*Bom, Sica, Kwanghee, Leeteuk, Xia Junsu, Hyoyeon, Hyomin,
      although if Hyo will get an nose job and vline surgery she would look good
