What a #1 Win Means in Kpop
I saw someone on youtube say that many girl groups who cry are over exaggerating and are faking emotions to be dramatic, and only few groups (this person was referring to EXID as being one of the few) are truly emotional when they cry. First of all, why the fuck was it necessary to trash on other groups when they win, even if you were trying to bring EXID up, you shit talked other groups in the process. Shame on you, EXID fans know Hani loves and protects girl groups like crazy and she’s a huge supporter of girls supporting other girls, and you’re out here shit talking girl groups for unnecessary reasons. Second, a #1 win means so much in kpop, it doesn’t matter who you are, those first #1 wins mean something. a #1 win means your future as an idol has become alot more secure. the first #1 is the start of so many other great things like getting that first paycheck, which means paying your parents, it’s the first sign of true success in the industry. So groups like EXID, f(x), AoA, they had to wait some time for that first #1, and it was super emotional because it meant finally having some place in the industry. But even for groups like 2ne1, blackpink, twice, miss a, groups who got #1 early on, it’s still really emotional, it’s a sign that the training has paid off. Especially for Twice, who got their #1 on the 1 year anniversary of their survival show, where just a year ago, their fates as singers were unclear, but a year later, they got their first taste of true victory. Even f(x), their first win for 4 walls in 2015, it was really emotional, it was their first album without sulli, and they were gone for so long and disbandment rumors were everywhere, it meant alot. So no one is fucking exaggerating their emotions when they win #1, in fact, many try to suppress it, CL didn’t cry when 2ne1 got #1, she felt that leaders can’t cry. Victoria tried not to cry either. See, girl groups are damned if they do and damned if they don’t. Being emotionless means you’re an ungrateful bitch, being emotional means you’re an attention whore. People need to stop with this attitude, and let these girl groups enjoy their successes in the industry however it may be. Whether they’re laughing, crying, smiling, or just bowing, what gave you the right to call them a bitch based off of that action?
