a very neccessary taehyung rant
[you guys i’m about to get really pissed, salty and aggressive right now]
so you guys know taehyung…often described as the member that’s
is this right?
(i mean ofc he’s gorgeous a bitch is not blind but-)
listen here taehyung isn’t just there to be cute and we need to acknowledge him as a performer in general not just as ‘tae-oppa is my husband!!1’ or ‘lol he’s so random xD’ cause he is more than that.
i feel like it would take some armys too long to think of anything good to say about taehyung that doesn’t have to do with the way he acts/his appearance and that makes me sad. like actually think about it yourself and be honest with yourself.
now about his talentTM~
i’m sure even the fake stans that linger in this fandom have at least heard stigma, so you must know the guy’s got pipes (tae’s voice wasn’t my cup of tea at first cause i normally have a preference for higher-pitched vocals but that was until i heard stigma and the covers)
anyway why do people barely talk about it? like he had to hit that high note in stigma for people to start acknowledging his vocal range. also let’s talk about how there are barely any bts songs suited for his baritone vocal. um why did that one commercial suit his voice better than any of their songs?
[although he really did shine in ‘her’ i’m so proud!!]
his voice is not only amazing but it’s so soothing i mean 4 o’clock, i listened to that song on repeat while studying for exams, also i’ve no idea what he sings about in ‘hug me’ but i lip-sync very passionately to his cover and ‘even if i die’.
some of you guys might argue that at least he gets more lines than jin, but honestly half the time it’s cause he’s the only one that can go as low as they need or like ten seconds of growling and growling is not a line. for example jin may not have gotten lines in not today, but what tae had wasn’t lines fight me
[no trying to argue that jin doesn’t have it worse than tae when it comes to lines]
i want people to discuss and elaborate on his vocals more the way they do with jimin/jk (same for jin ofc) which is why i’m very thankful for this video existing.
now he’s not only only an underrated singer but also an underrated dancer (i still dky he isn’t in dance line? like top ten mysteries scientists still can’t answer) anyway i never and i mean never see posts about his dancing,
literally just searched ‘taehyung dance’ to find a gif as an example
all i find is gifs of taehyung hip thrusting/grinding on stage, taekook fans losing their shit over their part in dna or posts about other members’ dancing
i mean why would there be taehyung dancing? in the taehyung dance tag?? in this economy??? that’s just insane!!
hell i can’t even find youtube videos of him dancing, they’re all funny videos or him being ‘disrespectful!1!’ i’m really getting pissed off let’s move on
[like literally though the boy can dance i need u in heels wtf]
taehyung gets hate too
just cause he’s a popular member doesn’t mean he doesn’t have haters. not to bring this back but he struggles when it comes to hitting the high note in stigma, which is totally understandable. i mean he’s probably so exhausted from previous performances and then he has to hit that note? he’ll obviously strain, like i’m not one of those people that just defends everything bts does
but the hate
the overlooked hate
armys themselves defending the hate
honey i literally run a blog dedicated to armys sharing their unpopular/negative bts opinions, i know very well that not everything armys have to say about the boys is going to be good. but this isn’t just criticism. “it just hurts my ears” smh
sympathize with your “bias”, the fact that this is/wasn’t just a high note that can be hit like that for tae and yk what? he bit off more than he could chew. but we know he can hit the note. he didn’t make the song for the sole purpose of performing it live, he did it for the album and maybe for himself, and i’m sure as hell glad he did cause it is one of my favourite songs.
mind you those are just comments from one video, about one thing. there’s more i’m not going to get into right now.
[ofc there’s also hate from the armys who claim he interferes with ships (as if that’s a valid reason to hate him) but let’s not get into ships right now :)))]
so is he an underrated member? debatable.
i don’t think anyone wants to say it, but the reality of the matter is the reason why he has a lot of fans is probably cause people fall in love with his personality (if not his visuals). it’s not a good thing. he is underrated in certain aspects and not at all in others.
ok i’m concluding this cause it’s getting too long but as you guys can tell i uh…have a lot of thoughts…
i don’t want him to end up keeping up this “weird” thing, cause it’s his branding.
let’s remember that he is not just taehyung but also V. let’s defend him against haters not become them, if you are tae biased you are tae biased through the highs and lows and you will stick with him through the bullshit, not drop him when he screws up. let’s recognize him as an artist. and for god’s sake let’s put him before the damn ships/ship wars.
i will now end this with some gifs of taehyung being a pure cutie x
nothing but respect for my (other) golden maknae. (before you come at me)
(might make a part 2 i have so many things in mind)
