Fangirl sees the light



Saw this message this morning when I logged in at Hallyu8.

 
As you know, a lot of fangirls think that their oppars are great rappers. Whenever I try to tell them that their oppars aren't very good at rapping, they always use the same comebacks: "Better than you", "On what basis are they bad?" "Let's see you rap", "Just because they're underground, it doesn't make them better", "They don't suck just because they're in an idol group", etc.

This particular fangirl tried telling me that GD was a good rapper and on par with underground rappers. I asked her on what basis and she basically said "He's so cool when he raps." I asked her to judge his Korean lyrics and she told me that she did...through English translations.



I tried telling her that GD's rhymes, wordplay, flow, etc. weer garbage, but she was right since she read English translations of GD's raps! There's nothing that can beat that. Then after I told her I know Korean, she stopped trying to tell me how good a Korean rapper is. Then I got that message this morning.

I may have helped one delusional fan this week, but there are tens of thousands of them still out there.

  2. I don't get how making weird faces and flailing around schizophrenic-ally into a camera constitutes as 'swag', but hey, fangirls.
    You fixed patient #1, about a bajillion more to go before you actually make a difference :D:D:D:

  3. I have a confession to make.

    Recently, I have been fucking obsessed as hell with Infinite. Every time I hear a new song by them (which I try to avoid because I have shit loads of work right now), I have to have it on repeat for hours.

    And I know that Dongwoo and Hoya suck at rapping

    But I can do nothing about my feels.

    1. "And I know that Dongwoo and Hoya suck at rapping"

      As long as you know that, enjoy their songs to your heart's content.

    2. Don't be embarrassed of your Infinite feels!! I like Big Bang and everyone around here shits on them all the time. Shit, I shit on them all the time too LOL.

      Just be realistic about what they can and can't do, and be willing to roll with the punches and you're fine.

    3. I was surprised that Infinte's weakest point musically is their rap though considering they were "mentored" by Tablo.

    4. I hear Infinite's rappah line is coming out with an album. I love them but fuck no definitely do not want.

      Hoya can't rap for shit but he's a pretty solid vocalist, a good dancer and as sweet as chocolate syrup.

      DongWoo sucks at everything but he's got a nice smile.

    5. Hoya is alright I suppose. Infinite still relies too much on Sunggyu and Woohyun for their live vocals, Sungjong and Hoya sing super soft, L is almost always off key and everyone else sucks.

      Dongwoo is such a beautiful boy ;_;

  6. I hope she wasn't blinded by the light. The revelation must have been hard for her.

  7. I like some Korean songs with raps in them, but I have no right to say who is the best rapper or not given that I do not know even basic conversational Korean and rely on English translated lyrics. Whenever I rate who got flow, I stick to local or English-speaking ones.

    Right, reehji?

  11. I find this kind of funny because she must have been one simple minded dumb bitch.
    If I like my band,"fuck you and your condescending criticism riding on a high horse in such smuck glory"
    She or he was much more friendly
