Wow thanks to whoever started this thread!
I wanted to post the link to that thread just so I can clear some things up.
Firstly, someone referred to me as “that guy who makes GIFs mostly perverted of 4minute on tumblr” no comment… but added “Respect + a trillion up” so thanks lol.
And all the arguments regarding whether CEO Hong would understand my post, like I said, I deliberately wrote it in English to emphasize that the note and complaints are from overseas 4Nias. If Hong doesn’t understand a speck of English, how difficult would it be for him to get that note translated, that is, if he really cared about 4nias.
Also, someone noted that “If 4Minute isn’t making a profit.” The total physical sales for Volume Up album is 4Minute’s highest ever, and their still doing CFs, although not as much as before. So how can CUBE not make a profit? The only reason they didn’t win a mutizen during Volume Up promos is because they got shafted by Cheatstar (or Brave Brothers, depending on who you believe).
People who want Jiyoon to have a solo project, I hear you. But I’m not sure if that would be the right move for 4Minute’s career at this point. Those who have followed Jiyoon’s in IS2 knows that she has all the talents to carve out a successful solo career, but is now the right time to push for that? The transition from kpop group member to solo artist is full of hardships and obstacles. Unless you belong to one of the top groups in Kpop like DBSK or Big Bang, solo projects are always going to be a high-risk move. Heck, even Hyuna, who is arguably more popular than 4Minute, hasn’t won a mutizen for her solo efforts, what more for Jiyoonie? Instead, I would like her to appear in varieties more, then when the time is right and her popularity increases a little, then maybe CUBE can finally launch her solo projects. But she’s doing a musical soon, so that’s a good start.
Thanks to everyone who appreciated this little project. I liked the discussion going on in that thread, especially the support for 4Minute. I guess we have similar feelings and complaints regarding CUBE’s broken promises for 4Minute and their fans.
I don’t think that building has any janitors though lol. Anyway, I’m planning a similar project as I might be going back to Korea in January. It’s a bit riskier for me (if I get caught lol). The plan is to ask for all 4nias to submit all of your complaints, messages, etc. and put them on post-its with your name/twitter or tumblr handle, then fill Hong’s door with all of those post-it notes. What do you guys think? Lol.
