EXO bullied Kris out of the group: the ironclad evidence*

Like everybody else who follows k-pop, I've been reading about Kris leaving EXO, after all it's been pretty fucking impossible to avoid.  In fact it's even interrupted my blogging schedule - I had a completely different blog about 80% completed and then this fucking shit turned up and crashed the blogging party, demanding that I write about it, simply because I know people will not stop asking me about this stuff if I don't write about it.

While I honestly have no major emotions about EXO in any particular direction (other than at least "Overdose" is better than "Growl"), it's been vaguely interesting to watch the reaction to their line-up situation in Korea.   Many people are calling Kris lazy and sticking up for the rest of the group... but a thought occurred to me: if it were a female group, this would never happen.  Whether it's T-ara, Girl's Day5Dolls, miss A, Sistar, Jennie Kim, SNSD, Crayon Pop... it doesn't matter which group it is, when a member is having trouble, that member is an angel and the rest must therefore be evil bullies.  Because anonymous people on the Internet said so.

I thought it would be interesting (to me, maybe not to you or anyone else but oh well) to turn the tables.  How would the EXO/Kris situation be received by the hive-mind if they were judged by the same standards that netizens use to judge female groups?  Read on in the following hypothetical scenario (I have to bold this part or some dumb motherfuckers won't understand the point of this blog) and find out.


EXO bullied Kris out of the group: the ironclad evidence*


1. SOLID VIDEO EVIDENCE OF BULLYING OMG SAY IT AIN'T SO

Observe from 8:33.  Other members beating up Kris.  Tsk tsk.


Sure, it's part of a roleplay for a TV show and they're just pretending... but we're using the same standards that netizens use to judge girl groups and inconvenient facts didn't matter to netizens when judging "rice cake Eunjung" so they don't matter here either.

2.  Check these EXO bully GIFs.

Look at this other EXO jerkoff (I don't know which one he is but it doesn't matter because they are all not Kris and therefore equally bullies) using Kris as a leg-rest.  If you want objectification, forget that tits-out Hyosung video because it's right here.  Total dehumanisation, he is nothing more than furniture to the other members.

 

"My leg is on you.  What are you gonna do about it?"

Kris responds: "What's the deal bro?  I thought we were pals?"

"Fuck you cunt - here, have the other leg."

3.  Look at this fucking hat. 

Clearly his costume designer is bullying him.

exo-k_overdose_kris_3

Yes some of you have noticed that I wear a hat like this on my stream - to show SOLIDARITY WITH KRIS AGAINST BULLYING that's right.  Someone has to stick up for him.  It's me, Cypress Hill's Sen Dog and Kris against the world.

4.  Kris fucked off to Canada because he couldn't stand the bullying.

The two great bastions of truth agree: a rumour mill article, and a random netizen.  It must be true.

5.  He sure fucking cries a lot, fuck.

He must be sad about something to be doing all this crying.  It couldn't be the wonderful working conditions and ultra-low pressure lifestyle of k-pop, surely not - so it must be bullying.  What else is there to be sad about in the wonderful cushy world of Korean pop idols?

6.  Kris draws angsty art.

Check this out.

exodra

Kris has reimagined EXO as a frightening dragon, a wild beast with sharp teeth, terrifying paddle-feet (or maybe wheels?) and no mercy, destroying everything in its path.  Do you see him smile in this picture?  No, you do not.  Do you see anything in the dragon's path in this picture?  No you do not.  That's because the dragon already destroyed everything else in the world.  Like Kris's dreams.

krispic

Another picture, that Kris drew of EXO.  His self-portrait is on the far left.  Notice how he is on the outer edge, and the distance between his figure and the rest is greater than any other EXO member in the picture.  He has surely been ostracised and is relaying this subconsciously through his artistic endeavour - it must be true because I'm referencing an academic article that I didn't actually take the time to read properly but sounded about right just from the heading to back up my point.  Meanwhile the group is imagined as a wild beast with a Ku Klux Klan hat, which might not have anything directly to do with bullying but is just weird so we know something strange is going on.

7.  Kris is bullied by staff.

Check out these totally reliable rumours from some anonymous person.
Kris is a private person. When he first joined SM as a trainee, he was very motivated and wanted to learn everything, like a child. But he was told before directly by staff that he wasn’t good at anything, even up to this year.
Incredible.  It sounds so true, especially because it fits the argument that I'm already making.  That's important, because if it didn't, I'd have to disregard it and that would be a shame.

SM staff won't even let him display his harmless tattoo:



How mean, how dare they cover up his brave, unique sign of individuality in a genre known for free thought and individual freedom of expression.  Surely they are just picking on him.

8.  Kris is embracing the way of the Cao Ni Ma as a psychological defence mechanism.

We all know about Sulli's love of the Grass Mud Horse and what's really at stake.  Kris knows, too.

kriscao1

Wearing a crown and holding a Grass Mud Horse is a double fuck-you.
kriscao2

He's saying "I'm the king, and you're a dirty cao ni ma" (with a pirate hat, no less - no doubt a sly reference to getting stiffed on profits from group activities).  The rest of EXO are playing dumb but they should have seen his contract lawsuit coming as soon as they saw these pictures, but they didn't because they are bullying bullies who only care about bullying.

9.  Before he debuted, Kris was an emo.

krisemo

We all know how much emos get picked on.  Entire chunks of the globe are attempting to bully them out of existence as you read this.  From strife-torn countries to comedy TV shows, emos are safe from bullying nowhere.  It's safe to say that if you are or ever were an emo, you're probably getting bullied by somebody, somewhere, even if you don't know it yet.  So of course Kris is getting bullied for this.  You're probably bullying him right now.



I realise that all these pieces of evidence are absolute crap and prove nothing individually, but in what I like to call the "Netizenbuzz hate-train effect", several pieces of shitty evidence that prove nothing all put together equals one piece of solid evidence that people will believe without question!  So now we know using this logic that Kris was bullied out of EXO!  Yay Kris for standing up for your rights!  Bad, bad EXO and SM CEOs, tsk tsk!  Let's all go and throw eggs at SM Entertainment's headquarters and miss and hit the gutter and cry a bit!

At least you'll have a clear shot.

  1. There's rumor that SM didn't let Kris have roles in drama despite being offered, so he was disappointed. I guess Kris' determination level is too high for EXO.

    1. If offered roles didn't fit SM's business plan for Kris and EXO, they could have rejected them on behalf of Kris and yes if it's in the contract you can bet the label can do it. If they saw Kris as a "wild card" they may have been nervous about letting him do acting, fearing he'd never return.

    2. RYAN: Yeah. Indeed it's true. He actually wanted to leave before 'GROWL' promotion and went to many castings in China back then, according to a friend of mine, whom i have know for 3 years , and basically he is working for one of those movies production teams and he saw Kris on the list - he is doing administrative stuff. (OK no need to bash on me- know you are not goin' to believe me- but hey i aint those delulus+ im just another random guy over the Internet) But many other people, are reporting the same in China. Plus, the movie my friend's team is in is a romantic comedy- don't think it would breach SM or Kris' image or plan. But Kris was said to be bad at acting, which i think it should be true.

  2. Someone should alert Sehun that he is now the most useless member of EXO and Xiumin that he is officially the shittiest rapper.

    4. nobody in exo is good at rapping, comparing them was always a waste of time

      Delete
    5. The thing is that nobody in EXO writes their own raps anyway so it's not like you can assess their rapping ability by listening to EXO songs. The rapping ability you're really assessing is that of whoever actually wrote the rap, probably some ugly businessman hunched over ProTools. Rap is a compositional skill. Someone who can recite Enimem word for word isn't "as good as Eminem" because the real talent is in thinking that stuff up in the first place, not in rapping it.

    6. I wouldn't say Kris was useless. He spoke english for them and probably secured a large portion of the fangirls.

      Delete
    7. Kris pronunciation is pretty unclear and he often tries to muffle and slur when he speaks English. Well, at least to me.

  3. Even if there was hard evidence (so to speak) of EXO being serial rapists, netizens would probably still defend them. Even worse, they'd probably call those poor women sluts.

  14. We should believe in Kris :)
    The EXO members bully Kris is juz for fun and playing cuz all of them are so childish....
    Let's hope that SM staffs and manager(CEO) will treat theirs artist like human beings and not a part of machine...
    SM staffs should be more responsible when their artists are sick or ill..
    I juz hope Kris don't leave EXO...He must know that EXO members now is more struggling than usual...He as a leader must take responsibilities and don't make EXO member feel more be betrayal...
    Hope Kris change his mind and suddenly appear in The Lost PLanet Concert :) ^_^ ☆☆☆
