k 101


As you guys know I keep this blog purely NCT as possible so I do apologize, but this is very important to me. Taehyun is a member of the group called HOTSHOT if you don’t already know. He goes by the stage name Kid Monster also nicknamed Kimon for short. He has now began as a contestant on this season of Produce 101 along side fellow HOTSHOT member Sungwoon! Sungwoon has quite a few idol friends so his support has gained quickly. Sadly Taehyun hasn’t had as big of a response yet, but he is more than deserving let me tell you that! He is an expert dancer. Having been a former YG trainee and member of the Krump dance crew Monster Woo Fam, He has been able to showcase his talents as a background dancer in Big Bang performances and also has been seen if other korean artists music videos. He sings AND raps in Hotshot, + his dancing makes him a TRIPLE THREAT! He has received a A ranking on Produce 101. As you can see he is very amazingly talented so if you would be so kind to cast your votes for Noh Taehyun you will not regret it! If you read through this whole thing Thank You <3 

Dear ㄴㅇㅅㅌs,

In regards to NU’EST partaking in Produce 101, there are several things I wanted to address:

Regardless of whether you have followed NU’EST since debut or have only recently become a fan, you will know that they have struggled a lot over the years. You will know about their hardships, about their suffering and how hard they have worked to improve their talent to win people over but to no avail. As a fan, you would have felt their suffering as your own.

However, there are many people who do not know what NU’EST have been through, who do not know who they are and what they stand for. These people will be confused, questioning why a group as ‘established’ as them are partaking on this show because to those people, it is unfair on the other trainees. These people have their own right to complain because we too, as fans, were deeply confused and distressed when we found out this decision had been made for basically the same reasons.

Ultimately, NU’EST partaking in Produce 101 is not for them to show other trainees up. It is not because they are fishing for pity votes, no matter HOW MNet wants to portray the members of NU’EST in this show. NU’EST want the recognition for their work and they want to be heard. This is them making a stand; this is the members of NU’EST throwing their fists in the air and saying, ‘You know what? We deserve better. We want to reach our goals, we want to fight for it and we will face all critics to get there.’

As a fan, it is hard to see NU’EST go on to Produce 101, to put themselves in the firing line but this is the reality of things. There will be people who do not accept NU’EST taking part; there will be people who are bitter, angry and frustrated but why is that? It is because they feel like it is unfair and they are completely entitled to their opinions. There will be people who talk badly about the members, who tear them apart piece by piece and that will be difficult to see because as a fan, we are loyal and we can’t stand seeing any of our boys being put down or torn apart. We can’t stop people from saying these things no matter how hard we wish we could. There will always be people out there spreading hate, but just because they are hating does not mean we spread hate back. If you don’t want to support any other trainees, that’s fine, that is your wish, but don’t say anything bad about them either. Don’t go on to their videos and talk about NU’EST because that is disrespectful. It’s like someone going on to NU’EST member’s videos and talking about another trainee or group; how frustrating would that be to see as a fan? If you want to talk about NU’EST, talk about them on your SNS or comment on their videos on Naver & YouTube to show your support in a more proactive way.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that-we can only do so much to protect them in this situation and we need to be as brave as they are being. They knew the consequences of taking part in this show and whether you think Pledis forced them or not, it is something we need to support them with as best we each can. For some people, this will be a battle you can courageously face up to, but for some fans, you will be scared and anxious. Therefore, we need to encourage one another and be kind; support one another the way you support NU’EST. As for the people outside the fandom, if they are being angry and hateful, just ignore it. Don’t waste your time trying to argue with those people because it will be futile and it will only enrage and encourage their behaviour even more.

Let’s focus on the members of NU’EST taking part in this show. Let’s band together, vote for them as much as we can and continue spreading the ㄴㅇㅅㅌ, always.

That is basically what I have to say in a nutshell. I’m here if any ㄴㅇㅅㅌ needs support too. I’ll do the best I can to help ^^.
