I love these three together 💖😙💖

I find it funny some stans think it’s the biggest injustice ever with their rookie or 2-year-old group not getting their 1st win. Some groups have released quality music for five years and still haven’t won like NU’EST.

U-kiss are legends but it took them seven years to get a win cos this industry is a piece of shit. 

Some groups are still legends but have NEVER WON like orange caramel. And some groups release amazing music their whole careers and NEVER win like Rainbow and then disband

In other words, if I see anyone else complaining about their relatively new or rookie group not winning imma smack you

When a single word triggers a kpop song

Wow- 🎶Fantastic Baby Dance wooo ooo I wanna dance dance🎶
Fire - 🎶Fire Fire. When I wake up in my room🎶 or 🎶My love is on fire🎶
Sorry- 🎶Sorry Sorry Sorry Sorry🎶
Call me - 🎶Call me baby Call me Baby🎶
Monster - 🎶You can call me monster. I’m creeping in your heart babe🎶
Dora- 🎶dora Dora Dora… I wanna let you go🎶
Mama- 🎶Careless Careless shoot anonymous anonymous heartless mindless no one who care about me🎶or 🎶Mama just let me be your love🎶
Rain 🎶rainism🎶
Ugly 🎶 I think I’m ugly and nobody wants to love me just like her I wanna be pretty🎶
Good Luck - 🎶Aoa🎶
Hears a howl or even the word wolf - 🎶Chogiwa🎶
Red light- 🎶fx🎶

Shook.

We all are. But this is not the end. Let yourself grieve; you’re not silly or stupid. Our weedols were never just a “boy-band”, ever. This shakes us because they brought us the background music of our personal survivals and shared pieces of their own personal lives that helped us weather both our storms.

They are still growing and so will I with them.

I support Soohyun and his continued dream to be a famous singer.

I support Kiseop, because he overcame something we all struggle with; self worth. This was his dream and he’s still making it.

I support Hoon because he’s been passionately composing music and singing since before he even joined our family.

I support Eli because despite the venomous hate he got for sharing his most precious child and love of his life, he took the beating, apologizing for being happy and soldiering on, proving he’s willing to bust ass to make everyone happy.

I support Jun and his dream, for all the hard work he’s put in to be worthy of years of established songs and choreography. He is the embodiment of everything our stan group has stood for. I’m so proud he’s ours.

I will support Kevin, whom will undoubtedly stay in the industry based on his passion, talent, and natural personality for entertainment. I will continue to support him in his endeavors as I have for all previous members. I hope you do to. 

Where are we now: U-KISS is a second generation KPop group that stood the test of time and still does. A standard Kpop contract is around 4-6 years. Only one person was not renewed this year. NH says there is an album ready for release and that the others are not disbanding. Due to his amazing vocal range, Hoon will likely pick up a lot of song parts, as well as Kiseop, now that his musicals have proven he can handle more challenging parts.

Soohyun’s obligatory military enlistment will be soon so I am maintaining, in my heart, that they will at least make it to the ten year mark before he does so. And that would be okay.

KISSme: Families always grow in many directions. This is no different. Love each other, send support. Let Kevin and all the guys know, for all the years they had our backs, we will continue to have theirs.

If people saw boy groups like girl groups

“while being cute is annoying, being sexy is slutty. while being popular is overrated, being new is annoying. while doing a similar concept is being a wannabe, doing a different one is ridiculous. when you go through a scandal, they tell you that you should disband and when you have no scandals, they ask “who are these nobodies?” female idols deal with hate on a powerful level because part of the kpop fandom won’t be satisfied with them. as comebacks keep happening, the dislike towards girl groups spreads like a fire set by misogynists.”
