Woah i am really out of the loop
Surprised i didnt saw the news on twitter in some ways
Well i guess birthday present in advance, my bd is exactly a week after xD
never understood the visual position in the first place in a music group
It's all pretty subjective and most will call visual just because they are categorized as such, and shit starts to happen when a member actually grows to be more 'beautiful' than the official one
Doesn't bts officially announce (themselves) their real comeback like a month in advance at least? (Or has there been already an announcement and I just missed it)
as if fans don't fight enough because of line distribution...
And the solos for all members hardly being released in a timingly manner (if at all)
I was on and off
Then tvxq disbanded and jyj was being blocked by SM everywhere then they went to the military and I stopped listening to kpop officially not long after snsd kicked Jessica out (it wasnt the same anymore and super junior members were going to the military as well)
Didnt come back until i accidentally listened to blood sweat and tears from bts
Didnt become a fan until DNA
I would say i was truly a big kpop fan in 2016/2018 after that the overall kpop style geared somewhere else sound wise and I just dont really feel that attached anymore
I might check from time to time but certainly nowhere as much of a big fan
Tbh it's been so long i don't wven know anymore
It has been big part of most of my life but i was nowhere the type of super loyal fan that would spend money etc (i did want to go see the jyj concert in Barcelona but saw the add too late rip, i did go see bts kn 2019 in Paris tho, would still go to another concert if I could afford it and this time i can get better seats)
Unless there is another song that catches my attention back I guess
Rn i would say barely 5% of what I listen is kpop
im more into cn media at the moment (then jp and western)
would be a nice birthday present (for me) if that was the case lol
the aripink rumour has been around for so long, I'm suprised people are still holding onto that like it was confirmed truth
That's so cool. Too hear kpop on radio
Tbh here in the uk i mostly hear bk (the ones in english, like the dua lipa one) and I think either shinee or exo or even seventeen (i didnt know the song but the presentator stated which group it was after)
Otherwise i remember hearing dynamite back in Spain in the summer while at correos (post office)
Europe slowly and steadily getting into kpop xD
Don't know if this counts but they have played a whole BTS playlist at McDonalds, including of course Butter. I live in a small ass town from an eastern european country btw.
Either they got their mcdonald menu and a way to promote it
Or as a way to apologise that they, in fact, don't have the BTS menu xD
i just heard it now from a neighboors garden who have the radio on almost 24h a day (they spare us during the night)
I live in a tiny town in Wales xD
as the title mentions, i was going back up to my room and I had the window open.
One of my neighboors (old lady/a grandma with a son and I think 2 tiny kids live there as well) have the radio on almost 24/h a day everyday (with the most old-ish songs and hits one can imagine, sometimes it is nostalgic and a good selection, sometimes i am actually forced to close the window)
And then there was butter (it was around the last part of the song already when I noticed it)
I am in wales (UK) and only ever heard kpop on the radio when I was shopping (at our local Asda) a couple of times since coming here (almost 2 years now)
I'm guessing the UK does like Butter if it is in the radio here lol
I got excided so had to make a thread and announce it, it was so unexpected xD
i don't know what to think about the drug thing. it looked like he sniffed but then again wasn't there any security? how could he enter the event with drugs? i know it's the netherlands but... lol. would he be that stupid to do it live on national television? the truth is that it really isn't clear what he's doing, there's no actual proof, just speculation. as for looking drugged; maybe that's just their attitude in public lol. I DON'T KNOW!
i hope that 2nd place brought eurovision excitement to french people, barbara did really well and you should be proud of her.
i was reading comments on italy's video and everyone was so hyped up for rock song winning and one british guy said that the uk shouldn't make any efforts because the contest is a joke. if they think that first 5 songs were a joke... no wonder they are always last. was it once a joke? yes, it was. but look at this year's staging, outfits, and songs, they were all classy. not hamster wheels burning pianos, just artists (and dancers) on the stage performing their songs.
The most suspicious part imo is the dude on the left how he reacted when they were being filmed lol
there are a lot of extra salty british comments accusing eu to be petty for brexit and hence the 0 points
They must have forgotten norway, russia and australia were also there lol
that said, the timing does make one wonder xD
spain needs to renovate its operación triumfo system (it's how they choose and train concursants), feels like they have been sending the same thing recycled over and over again one way or another (so not suprised they were still close to last)
It's kinda what stops me from buying albums because they almost never release just a plain cd version
