Twice released their new song (+album) yesterday. I don't usually follow them but the solo dance break shows off some really nice charms.
Recently I fell into a youtube hole of watching K-Pop fans react. I can't believe some of them have the presence of mind to upload this stuff. If you ever needed proof NEETs that oogle the opposite sex and act like they have super autism is only a thing guys do then these videos prove them wrong.We banned all autism and lolcows from Kpop many years ago. All that remains are well behaved and sensible fans.
They appeal to the woke crowd so much, which automatically makes them "relatable" to the throngs of youth with nothing better to do than to boost them on social media like a bunch of brain dead zombies. They've had some good releases, really, but some of their releases are kind of just rehashes of the same old arena hype song shit. (Which apparently is enough for people to say that it's good, but who am I to say that.)BTS are good, but I don't see how they are the greatest thing ever. I honestly think their popularity is purely happenstance signal amplification from social media. I LOLed at how they got a Grammy nod for some bullshit category (Best Cover design, I think) which confirms that Kpop, at least right now, is still not ready for the big times in the West.
fromis_9 already dropped a late nominee for song of the year:2019 seems very competitive in the rookie girl groups area, we already have the huge pre-debut build up of Produce48/Izone, and Loona, as well as fromis_9. And they all seem to all have a lot of money behind them so there's probably some bops coming down the pipe.
I always wondered why gooks liked effeminate men. Teenage girls usually do in the West, but they grow out of it eventually.Not a fan of the genre, but I should note that K-pop's boybands are quite popular among some teenage girls here. As a result, a lot of guys on the Russian Internet like to hate these boybands because of the singers' "faggy" appearance. I suppose they're jealous that said girls would prefer some borderline effeminate South Korean dude with a shitload of make-up and plastic surgery instead of them.
It reminds me of the times when furiously hating emos and Tokio Hotel's lead singer used to be trendy.
