Read the twitter replies for yourself if you have the spare holy bleach.
I honestly never understood the need to fire against the other idol when the dating rumor hurts them both - and the smoking gun is in the third party rumor mill's hands. I want to take the time to be an irritating preacher of fine internet conduct and say a lot of things are not worth saying, not worth thinking, and not worth to even engage in. Promoting divisiveness may distinguish you according to some tenuous interpretation of the fandom you consider yourself a member of but ultimately it causes rifts, potentially with more mature or inclusive members of your own fandom.
There are various reasons one might post divisive comments but Occam's razor paints a mentally draining picture that one felt that they would garner support from their own fandom or gain recognition as a defender of their idol, however the best defense is to not be in conflict in the first place. Bullets miss you when you are physically absent.
I think all of you should accept the fact that all the recent contents geared towards the Chinese market. Chinese players have a strong affinity for these types of content.
The player base there give them the most profits at the moment, so be no surprised when things continue like this. I bet Tencent and Activision are just following the numbers in their market research reports – after all, the goal of a firm is to maximize profits within a relatively short timeframe.
If we want to influence a change in the content direction, it'd require a substantial number of players to either stop playing or, at the very least, quit buying the content we're not into. Then, you can force Tencent and Activision to reconsider the future content structure.
And yeah, I get that CODM has its female players who like non-military stuff, and that's cool. But it'd be nice to have a better balance of theme here, which we don't seem to have right now.
On the bright side, if the game's not doing it for you, you can put that cash into something more worthwhile . Win-win, right?
great insight but that's barely tangentially relevant to my thread topic.
Dood's still at large, no?
that might have been was the OP's point but there are others that have discussed the moralness of the laws which I think is the more interesting discussion
too big to punish is inherent in literally every jurisdiction - the rich and powerful will always get away with things more than the average person - SK or otherwise - drugs or other crime
just look at yours truly...tax evasion? nope I'm innocent of all charges!!! lol
regardless of what one thinks about the law and it's "moralness"??? we aren't korean and we have no power to change SK laws as they stand
we can take a stand and be like this law is too harsh or whatever but it doesn't change what happens on the ground
tbh I think Bloom was making a point about being too big to punish rather than rule of law or morals
but more importantly this thread is really riveting
fucking saw something and I swear to god
TLDR: Kpop+AI-ethics = [Redacted]
I felt physically sick.
Edit: I guess the reason why I posted this here is that I feel the need to warn you guys about this kind of stuff. Just stay away or report if the platform you see it on allows.
I think we hardly ever have off-topic chats anymore - personal ideas or interesting discussions or....
Give in; that is the way.
Imma just say it. the way they delivered it kinda brings that innuendo theory back on the table.
That aside the song was really disjointed auditorily. The video feels like those wacky nonsensical sets like from the wiggles cover art or something
When I try and use the forums on Chrome mobile on my phone I get CloudFlare Host errors.
"Web server is returning an unknown error"
I ONLY get them on Chrome mobile on my phone. If I use Samsung's internet browser on my phone the site works fine and also works fine on my PC.
It happens regardless of if I use my carriers 5G, my home wifi or other wifi.
Kataphract had this issue too. Please clear cache of your mobile browser (or open an incognito/private window)
I want to mention, delete the cookies too. then log in again.
I miss akp.
Smells like a non-compete was threatened.
8. Humans are seriously so creepy. It's like they are trying everything they can to kill her
Never thought about it like that...Quote
7. But it's really fascinating how she only refuses to dance to NewJeans' songs. NewJeans' dances are pretty popular but she still doesn't know them. It makes me wonder if she just doesn't care about them? But seeing her dancing to Blackpink's song, she seems to just want to dance to the dances she likes
Idol do what Idol wants tbh. Can lead a horse to water but whether or not the horse drinks is entirely up to the horse.
I think this is slightly unfair to Wonyoung. On the one hand it seems like it's genuinely funny to some people but at the other hand it's at the cost of Wonyoung.
I think it may also have to do with a difference of idol culture too.
Don't forget the whole sector of the internet that purposefully sexualizes anything kpop with no exception.
