Consorting with the Enemy

The funniest thing about SNSD and 2NE1 having comebacks at roughly the same time (aside from the songs themselves, those are fucking jokes too) is the amount of back-and-forth wank that flies about on social media. Few things give me more pleasure than cackling at how crazy these fangirls/boys get over something so trivial as popularity contests or music show wins.

However, it seems like SNSD has taken the edge in this competition so far. You know shit has gotten dire for the Blackjack fandom when their biggest fansite/forum posts tweets like this to rally the troops.



If you don't care/remember why this is somewhat of a big deal, Genie is an app whored out by SM groups in every music video or opportunity they get.


How does it make sense for Blackjacks to be telling other Blackjacks to use SM's app to make 2NE1 beat SNSD? My mind is pretty boggled at the logic, but I'm sure if 2NE1 scores a win, they'll be happier they did it using SM's own app against them.

  2. I said this on Twitter the other day, but SNSD vs 2NE1 is like watching George Foreman and Muhammad Ali getting in the ring....today. Both groups have rested on their laurels for far too long.

    1. Are you suggesting that SNSD should diversify into innovative Grills that will change the way we grill forever?

    2. the whole point of The Boys and IGAB was avoiding releasing the same song over again and trying something new. if that's shown anything it's that it doesn't really suit them, they're not creative artists, they're entertainers and I'm glad SM have taken them back to a more tried & tested formula.

      bit ironic that 2NE1 should be the innovative ones but have been more stale. then again, Do You Love Me was rather different (and the one I liked from them recently) yet sold the worst

    1. I clicked the link but then I forgot why I clicked because the girl distracted me. Wasn't expecting a pretty random girl.

  5. "Soul" is the only song that I like from SNSD's new EP.

  6. Meh. For me, a few of the 2014 rookie groups' debuts have impressed me more than either one of the SNSD or 2NE1 comebacks.
