Saturday Shitfest #1

Since you guys scared away Shinbi earlier this year, there has been a lack of Question of the Week and Stupid Things Fangirls Utter articles. Those were the two weekly articles where you guys essentially talked about whatever, so we're bringing something similar but different here.

Essentially, any K-entertainment discussion in these articles are fine. I've noticed that I've been the only one posting for the past few months, not being able to cover all of the major stories, which has lead to a lot of off-topic discussion in the comments. I don't necessarily mind off-topic discussion, but I have realized that you guys want to talk about other things instead of just the topic the article is based on.

In the first comment below, I'll get the shitfest started.

111 comments:

  1. So I have seen that Kyungri has had an anti-fan pester her on Twitter lately.

    http://www.soompi.com/2013/06/07/nine-muses-kyung-ri-responds-to-obscene-comments-on-twitter/

    I know AKP did an article on this, but I can't even click on anything there. I can't search, I can't even go to the next page. What a piece of shit.

    Anyway, instead of trying to make the person apologize, the company should have just hired a couple of Korean netizens to troll Kyungri's anti-fan. That's what I'd do if I were a CEO.

    1. EXO is a piece of shit. The funny thing is if they were under any entertainment company besides SM, no one would give two shits about them. Basically their fan base is made out of sm whores that will digest any piece of shit thats produced by them. If any body deserves more credit it would b.a.p who has average songs that I wouldn't enjoy but aren't slapped together in a day like exo's.

    2. As much as I love B.A.P, the English in their comeback songs is awful.

    2. One Ok Rock is so basic for a rock band, though. Japan has much better rock bands, like School Food Punishment and Radwimps.

      Besides, most of the Korean music I enjoy is outside of Kpop.

    3. Well i just love Taka's voice!! Yes basic, but not really.
      I loved Turtle.

    4. all time low is horrible at all aspects of their job.

      one ok rock is good the first couple of times because you listen to answer is near or anything by them and its like YEAHHHH THEY HAVE SO MUCH ENERGY THIS IS AWESOME but after four or five songs you realize they they keep doing the same thing over and over. there are a lot of better bands even in the same genre in japan.

    5. I only listen to ATL when im high. Ok. I actually cant stand them otherwise.

    6. One ok rock is like your typical teenage fangirl type-rockband. Thats the fanbase they serve, same with ATL.

      I agree with whoever said Radwimps. Also I'll add in flumpool though they're more on the indie side sometimes.

  6. The best bad girl song by far is by BUMKEY ft supreme team, that is like one of the most legit song kpop produced in the last 2-3 weeks or so.

    2. I don't really like Tail of Hope lol, I just don't find it catchy or anything, it's just a bit plain for me.

    On a more serious note, what the hell does the west get out of socially marketing kpop?

    Without talking about the songs themselves, what possible advantage would it give the (socio)economic memetics, or wealth, of the western world to outsource consumption of pop music to South Korea? That is, if it's not just straight up fanboys, disguising themselves as the "journalists" they officially are.
    Label money is one, but why would you cater to a demographic the investors themselves, are spending money on inflating?

    Replies
    1. I can see the LA Times running a story about Kpop since there's a sizeable Korean community there, but the rest probably just want some traffic. American media is so bad now that no one reads/watches it, so they'll grasp at any straws to get some hits.

  8. The review for EXO's XOXO will be a waste of time somewhat, even though I have to admit that Baby Don't Cry and Don't Go are pretty decent. Wolf and Let out the beast are so crappy, what is wrong with SM and their fierce/fantasy concepts gone wrong? Also, what's up with the "Kiss and Hug" versions? Is it like saying EXO-K and M? I think that EXO could be an average-to-good group if they had another management team which would choose the decent singers/dancers from both -K and -M and dump the rest. That way they could make a new group with 6-7 guys. But hey, SM could debut a group of 20 dudes with only 3 of them with actual talent and they would still get praise and stupid fangirls to buy their merchandise.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Of course :3 It'd be hilarious, though XD

      Delete
    2. Dump: Sehun, Xiumin, Chanyeol, Suho

      Keep: Chen, Luhan, Lay, Tao, Kai(even though I despise him, he can dance well), D.O I guess, and Kris because every group needs that member that isn't really good at anything except making fan girls cream their pants(and well I guess he can translate).

      Brutally murder: Baekhyun

      Delete
    3. you would honestly keep lu han and kris over baekhyun
      .....

      Delete
    4. Well, I can't actually judge based on looks because they all look the same to me. I can't believe they are in their 20s, they look the same age as Zelo. But based on vocals, I think D.O and Chen are the best ( I'd say Baekhyun too but idk ). I don't know about their dancing skills cause I don't watch the MVs/performances to judge. Last year when I first saw Kai I thought he was at least average-looking ( more like an improved version of Taemin ) but idk, he looks pretty plastic to me now. D.O is cute tho'.

      Delete
    5. Either way, exo is shit. So is Bap, but less. Both suck in the looks department, too.

      Delete
    6. Jongup from BAP looks average when he's not wearing makeup or that horrible blond hair. I have yet to find an asian dude who can sport blond hair. Himchan looks good with black hair. EXO look like 16 years old to me, they are definitely not on the good-looking side.

      Delete
    7. ^if you mean that ridiculous lemon yellow shade of blond then tbh i don't think anybody of any race looks good with it. dirty blond has had better success; kris (well i don't think he's attractive but he did look 30008897398472094820 times better with the old manga boy hair), seungho, taeyeon, sungyeol, mirotic era yunho etc etc etc

      while i do agree with you that exo does for the most part look extremely prepubescent, that observation does not apply to lay because he is a part time sex god

      Delete
    8. Seungho looks indeed good with blond/brown hair. He's such a cutie. I don't remember sungyeol wearing blond hair before tho. I know Sungyeol had in the BTD era but that was just another way of saying "hey, I'm a girl". I googled Lay just now and yes, dat guy is hot. Definitely better than the others in EXO minus D.O.

      Delete
    9. I mean Sungjong in the BTD era

      Delete
    10. Lay has an odd face, but I find him to be sexy. Hmm dimples? Too bad he works for Sm and not hollister.

      Delete
    11. @Xiss

      Luhan and Kris have already proven to be the most popular members, and popularity counts for a group to succeed. Get rid of them and the whole thing falls apart. I've already admitted Kris doesn't do much except be good looking(in the eyes of fan girls), but Luhan at least is a solid lead singer. Maybe not the most talented singer but he holds his own, even live. Also he's consistent, unlike D.O for example.


      Yes I am serious about murdering Baekhyun. He sings alright but his tone of voice is really not appealing to me. Also he is so fucking annoying. He's easily the fugliest member(you can't hide fugly with eyeliner, sorry), and if I have to see him making this stupid face while singing one more time I swear...

      Delete
    12. ^ hahahaha i guess it's just me then i think baek looks like a puppy and i love the tone of his voice so he would be one of my first 'keep' members.
      lu han and kris were more popular by a landslide when exo debuted but now what i'm seeing is that more and more people are recognizing the value of members like chen who actually do the work in the group.


      @life: i don't remember when but some times during 'the chaser' era yeol did have dirty blond hair, although they changed it to brown pretty soon.

    13. I actually like all of them somewhat. They all looked hotter back in the days of mama though...Their stylists must've been high or somthin

  9. What do you guys think of Secret's Jieun?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ppl usually pay attention to Hyosung as the hottest, but i think Jieun is legit the best looking... And her voice is basic :/

      Delete
    2. Hyosung has the best body, but Jieun has the best face.

      Delete
    3. Hyosung isn't the hottest, fuck dem gums. Jieun is the best, but Sunhwa isn't too far behind imo.
      Wasn't Jieun the worst vocalist for the original Immortal Song 2 cast? Still, she's not bad by idol standards.

      Delete
    4. I said best body kneegrow. Going by faces alone, it's Jieun barely above Sunhwa >>>> Hyosung >>>>>>>>>>> diarrhea >>>>>>> rotting corpse covered in diarrhea >>>>>> Hana/Zinger.

      Yes, Jieun finished last each time on IS2, but I wouldn't necessarily go by that. Hyorin only won because she has a powerful voice, but even someone with an untrained ear like me can tell she can't control it well and she ruins songs by adding a bunch of unnecessary notes to songs.

      Delete
    5. well there isn't really anything to dislike about jieun but then again there isn't really anything to love either; sunhwa (who i personally think is the prettiest) and hyosung get a lot of attention because they have distinct personalities and put themselves out there and jieun is kind of stuck as the moderately talented sweet girl.

      Delete
    6. My Secret pretty faces ranking.
      1. Sunhwa.
      2. Jieun, though she's my favorite member because I find her really sweet and pretty.
      3. Hyosung.
      4. Zinger.

      To me, Zinger's not bad-looking or comparable to a rotting corpse covered in diarrhea as you like to put it, Chuck. I say she's more of a molded loaf of bread.

      Delete
    7. There is something SO out of proportion about Zinger. I think her head is WAYYYY too huge for her body or something

      Delete
  10. Yeah... SM should have let BoA compose her own music sooner. Tail of Hope completely destroys anything SM has released this year (with the exception lying with BoA's Disturbance and Henry's Trap).

  13. Henry's debut anyone?

    i liked it nohomo. I was listening and wondering which one out of Kyuhyun and Taemin would ruin it with a rap, but it nevar happened. speaking of them two, I can understand adding Kyuhyun for his falsetto part, but Taemin doesn't add anything that couldn't have been achieved without him. anyway, nice to see something good come out of SM this year.

    now we just have to wait and see what turgid shite Super Junior comes out with this year, that those fucking ELFs will make win a Daesang because it's their last chance to see their beloved oppars together, for the third fucking year in a row

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I knew Taemin was gonna do his usual Jonghyun-esque vocals but I was half expecting Kyuhyun to pull a Minho. Glad that didn't happen. I think it was wise to add Taemin if only to balance out the stiffness of Kyuhyun's dancing. Henry's got more musical talent than most of SJ and I'm just happy he's been let out of SM's basement before they forgot about him.

      Delete
    2. Trap was good, I mostly agree with you except I thought even Kyuhyun's part was pretty pointless. Henry could have easily done everything himself. I'm just glad the other 2 barely did anything and were forgettable. I know having them there is SM's plan to help Henry become more popular, but I'm pretty sure he is good enough to do that on his own.

      The video itself was an interesting struggle between Henry trying to be a classy mother fucker and SM forcing him to look "YG hood".

      Delete
    3. Seriously, "Trap" was actually OK. It wasn't strong enough to carry a solo "debut," but it was surprisingly not that bad. Henry = cutie ... D-Did I lose all credibility? Fuuuuuuuuuuu------

      Delete
    4. ^henry is very adorable i don't see why you would lose credibility for stating the obvious

      it was alright. there is something very "i've heard this before" about the song but it's listenable. i agree that it could have done without taemin, though.
      //i always think kyuhyun is a good addition to a song, but i think he is so good at low notes and nobody seems to want him to do songs like that which is sad.

      Delete
    5. I wish they would've just not had Taemin and Kyuhyun and let Henry be a classy motherfucker.

      Henry is cool

    2. THIS. Honestly Seungho is the only member i care. Reason of why i was ultimately dissapointed with the live version since he didn't sing shit (i guess all that belly fat+dancing are really something). I really can't stand G.O. He's like Taeyeon, without the charm of... being Taeyeon.
      I'm fine with the rest, but Thunder resembles Dara so damn much sometimes that it creeps me out

  16. Review SNSD's latest Japanese song! Their Japanese releases have consistently been good in my opinion (besides the egregious mistake that was The Boys). AKP didn't even have the common courtesy of making the MV article one of the highlights. It's struggling to break one mil, which is child's play for the usual SNSD release. Also SM failed at tagging it properly. The official MV is so hard to find through a simple YT or Google search.

    SNSD deserve better than this. They're the only ones carrying SM right now. EXO? I laughed.
