thank you for not painting SEA with a broad brush. everytime international fans want to slander them, they group the entire region together when every country is completely different. They never do this with East Asian countries.
Also some of the countries aren't even into kpop as much and have other things to spend money on. I've known many who prefer to listen to their own traditional music.
Well I come from SEA too, so I know the situation here. There are certain countries that are more into kpop such as Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia .. these countries have a rather big demographic which can afford Kpop albums
this is not good for bahihi as there is no way she will improve enough by december, i hope she does the right thing and sits out for the debut song and trains to up her performance level.
She is not THAT bad. She can carry a tune plus she is a stable vocalist. Her Fiesta's stage basically showed that. She just needs to work on her expression
And this coming from a fan who dont really like her in the debut line
cheated on or cheated with? confused
edit: ok I got it now, she is very dumb, she is like standar for idols there, number 1 it girl for idols and she goes and fucks her career for some ugly man when she could date anybody????
Im also confused.. so is cheated with Meiqi?
I live in one (Malaysia) and yes it's kinda expensive to buy Kpop album here. I forked out around 500+ of my country currency just to buy several version of BP album last year.
One typical kpop album is usually less than RM100 (USD20++). Where do u buy them?
Blackpink The Album is also less than RM100 on Shopee (after discount/cashback)
This is what I'm talking about, aside from these akgaes ruining things for the fans.
Can we ban / ignore the akgae on AKP? Is there such a function?
I have enough with a few
At some point, you realize it’s an addiction to negativity. A constant reason to prove their tunnel vision. Nobody here is their manager. We do not know her schedule, and logic should reason out the rest of the absurdity. Like YGE trying to limit her success? That doesn’t make sense. They make more money on her success. They’re a South Korean company with barely any ties to the US industry. Money already does well on streaming. That truly only leaves radio and Interscope is in charge of that as their US label. Stuff like this should be logically reasoned but people only see what they want.
People act like if someone want to push a song then they CAN.
If so, all songs from major US labels will be huge radio hits but that isnt the case. Back when gaga was declining, Interscope pushed songs to radio but they wouldnt even play. Nowdays same with Katy perry, radio will not just play anything u want them to play. Unless you payola which is illegal
i think u over-generalised.
Indonesia =/= SEA
There are many other SEA countries which are more invested in albums e.g. Singapore, Thailand, Philippines and Malaysia.
Edit: I live in Malaysia and I can tell you that Malaysian are crazy with certain kpop groups like Blackpink and BTS. I heard Singapore is same too. So maybe the effect is not seen with all groups but most of the famous groups
Stop posting already wont you?
Sorry to hear that. Sadly the negative threads ALWAYS get more attention than the positive ones and there were too many and people were just repeating themselves.
Hopefully BLINKs can learn and stop feeding the negative narratives.
Well you can see less replies on those threads made by jenchu. Obviously ppl are tired of her/his BS
finally someone writes an essay on this.
I mean, arent u guys tired of complaining? Save that energy to stream lalisa / money / SG instead
Yurina trended worldwide and people are talking about her the most yet she wouldn't have debuted even if it international votes had the same weight as koreans. Clearly ifans are just pure talk and zero support
She isnt #1 pick for many. Honestly she is nice to have, just like Jonghyun of 1st season
yes it is my favourite song from them, thus far
The fact that Ruiqi and yaning could make it if not for that heavy weightage given to korean votes... they have the top5 total votes
But honestly, given so many voters for Bahi, im expecting at least 200k album sales for debut. They better dont disappoint me
i rather take SRQ and Yaning than Dayeon and Yeseo tbh..
And #1 of the show is in fact #9 by votes ..
I bet there wont be any other show as messy as this.
#4 will not even debut because actual votes are one of the lowest
I really hope whoever voted for her will REALLY support the group when it debut. And not just voting to put a smile of her brother's face
When it came to actually counting ifan votes, Chaehyun and Bora are nowhere in the Top 9.
Yurina isn't talented.
The rest are already in the group, but it was obvious Ruiqi wasn't going to be a Korean pick because of her anti-US aid comments in the past.
Chaehyun total votes rank her at #9
How funny the #1 in the show actually is #9 by total votes
And people are mad at bahiyyih for “stealing” a spot for other members. When she actually had votes to back her position(technically first place should’ve been hers) but some of the members who actually debuted heavily relied on the unfair Korean weighted votes and actually stole the places of other girls. No one is calling it out but using bahiyyih as a punching bag instead. Yaning and su ruiqi were definitely robbed.
#5 Xiao Ting
#7 Su Rui Qi
I prefer this lineup honestly based on total votes.
I think with these kind of votes, the #1 is actually #9. She is not the rightful center.
