hello yes can westerners who know nothing about kpop pls stop writing essays about how ‘fake’ and ‘manufactured’ kpop is?

just bc you saw bts attend the bbmas that one time doesn’t mean you know the ins and outs of the kpop industry or their career (or any other groups).

please stop perpetuating the idea that idols PAY their way into the industry. because that does not happen.
and it’s a massive slap in the face to all idols out there who have dedicated years of their life enduring horrendous training, extreme dieting and often times even leaving their family and friends to pursue their dream of becoming an idol.

all idols have trained so so hard to be where they are, and i honestly can’t stress that enough like just do ten minutes of research into life as a trainee and you’ll see what i’m talking about. so don’t try and downplay their success as an artist just because you think that western artists are ‘more creative’ or ‘more talented’ bc well it’s just not true anyway like how many western artists can sing and dance at the same time and not sound like they’re dying??most artists over here don’t even dance anymore anyway, reason being they know they can’t sing at the same time

basically what i’m trying to say is stop discrediting them. a lot of kpop groups write and produce their own music. and ALL groups have worked ridiculously hard to get where they are. stop comparing them to the likes of One Direction (that’s just embarrassing pls don’t ever do that,,,no rlly,, don’t), Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber because it’s not a fair comparison, the kpop industry and the western music industry are worlds apart you can’t compare them because they don’t operate the same.

  • Every KPop Boy Group Ever: Our concept this time around is actually very family appropriate- our album songs represent the struggles of children and how hard their parents work to fund them a good future.
  • In the M/V: *grabs own crotch and aggressively thrusts into the camera*
  • Me: Wat di fucc is dis?

Why do you guys crave western validation so much?? A group can have had incredible achievements in Asia but oh no they aren’t popular in the west therefore non of that stuff matters. A lot of you guys have the mentality that if a group isn’t popular internationally then they aren’t popular at all.

The leader in a kpop group must be so hardcore and serious all the time....

PHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH Nope. They are just lovable dorks as well <3. (gifs are obviously not mine)
