Meta Mindfuck

I was trying to catch up on KPop news when I stumbled across this article on Netizenbuzz that really blew my mind at how dumb netizens are. If there was ever a shining example for you to show your friends how truly idiotic some KPop fangirls/boys can be on the internet, AKF would exist for this moment.

"WHY ARE IDOLS THROWING AWAY THEIR PUBLIC SNS ACCOUNTS?"
1. [+797, -11] Because of you guys

2. [+618, -10] So stop turning everything they post into news, they're using it to communicate with their fans but you're not even letting them do that

3. [+298, -9] Because too many journalists put out eas articles over a Twitter tweet... articles that anyone could write if paid some money.

4. [+98, -4] Stars upload selcas on SNS for their fans to see but journalists pick em up release articles saying "goddess beauty" and crap, which is basically ammo for people to comment she's not a goddess, is all she does take selcas all day?;; Journalists are the problem

5. [+75, -3] SNS also leaves more room for them to make mistakes

6. [+82, -13] IU, T-ara, and Clara are examples of SNS misuse
So you're telling me that these people recognize when Korean "journalists" can't be assed to do real reporting get bored and post about "goddess beauty" selcas, but instead of calling them to task for their shitty mockery of real journalism instead blame those same journalists for providing ammo for hate comments all over the internet?


All that boils down to me is: 

"FUCK JOURNALISTS, THEY KEEP CALLING THESE SHITTY SELCAS GODDESS BEAUTY AND IT MAKES US KEEP HATE CIRCLEJERKING SO WE CAN MAKE SURE THESE JOURNALISTS KNOW THEY'RE WRONG."

"DON'T BLAME US FOR LEAVING HATE POSTS ON SELCA ARTICLES, JOURNALISTS MADE US DO IT"

or my favorite

"YOROBUNS (YEO REO BUN?) DIDN'T MEAN IT"

Why can't people see that they're part of the problem? I mean, the very act of posting about this phenomenon is a mindfuck on so many meta levels it hurts to think about it. There's complaints about hate comments complaining on an article about complaining about a lack of SNS accounts to mine out-of-context tweets or selfies.

At the end of the day, it's up to the individual to decide whether their time is well-spent on posting a dumb hate comment for karma but apparently it was worth. Sadly, until the day when such articles no longer generate the same amount of clicks/interest they do now, we get to deal with shit like this.

  1. It's simple, those news sites use ridiculous headings to garner hate and attention, obviously. For example, Yoona taking a picture on the set. Allkcrap's heading: 'Yoona looks a beautiful goddess on the set of Prime Minister and I'. Another example, IU takes a picture as a model. Allkcrap's version: 'IU looks beautiful, glamorous and adorable in still cuts for Vogue'. It's these stupid ass headings that annoy jealous fangirls and cause them to hate, then fans will fight, and yeah, that's why this site was created. Apparently I'm interested in why fangirls always talk about how much they hate those idols, but religiously search for their pictures, and try to make some plastic surgery nonsense, along with watching all of their MVs to call out their 'fake' aegyo or shit like that.

    1. Even though I hate allkpop, I don't like when people make shit up and propogate it as fact. allkpop doesn't make those titles up, they translate them from Korean sites...which use article headlines like that all the time.

    2. They should have the dignity to make them more neutral then, though.

    3. All news sites for some reason have even to pull crap like this to get people to view their articles. If Allkpop wrote: 'Yoona takes a picture while filming', nobody would care. That's why they write: 'Yoona looks stunning in still cuts for Prime Minister and I' instead.
