I saw this and thought that more people should see it. I think that this girl is speaking the truth and I have so much respect for her. Plus there are still trainees who haven’t been debuted yet, even if they have so much talent and have been training for years. I don’t think it’s fair to them.

I find it really sad how disposable Kpop groups are. Not just by their fans but also by the industry itself. It’s like they have an expiration date set on them, where once they’ve been in the industry for a certain number of years, they’re labeled too “old” and just thrown into the sidelines to wither away. They’re not even worthy enough to be invited to award shows because they’ve apparently reached their limit and supposedly not “relevant” enough to the public eye, so they end up being disrespected and forgotten. What’s even more sad is that these so called groups considered irrelevant now are the ones who made Kpop this huge and profitable today, and they don’t even get a quarter of the acknowledgement they deserve.

Not be that fan or anything but I really hope all my boys are having a Good Day™. I hope they’re eating all their meals🍴and laughing with their brothers👨‍👦‍👦 and having fun🎉 while they practice choreo👯‍♂️ and that whatever new music🎶 they’re working is flowing well and that they’re-

Dbsk deserves better
Super Junior deserves better
Shinee deserves better
Infinite deserves better
U-kiss deserves better
2pm deserves better
B1a4 deserves better
Btob deserves better
Teen top deserves better
Block b deserves better
Even though these groups have been around for a while, they are in no way irrelevant or flops. They still have dedicated fans who have stayed by them since the very beginning, and they absolutely do not deserve to be disrespected and forgotten like they are now by so many new fans. All of these groups have paved their way to success from pure hard work, and helped make kpop this international so the least we can give them is a little respect.

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.

Hi I’m just curious if it makes anyone else feel this way but when I see pictures of idols in airports or out in public with their hands over their faces it’s uncomfortable???? And I don’t want to reblog or spread that because it looks like they don’t want to be seen??? Does anyone get this or am I crazy????

Why are there so many Kpop fans with shitty attitudes! Especially in the last month like…come on. Why the hate on so many groups that have no control over their concept or comeback time? This is why I kinda hate how the overall fandom is seen…can we go back to 2011 where fan wars weren’t a thing and people truly enjoyed Kpop! Where we got to enjoy great groups and they didn’t get hated on for no reason!! Why can’t people enjoy the music without you having to leave mean comments and negative opinions KNOWING GOOD AND DAMN WELL THE IDOLS READ THE COMMENTS!!
