Nobody is given anything. Lol like I said if this truly is an issue that's something Taemin or SHINee would deal with or something sm entertainment has to address. This is NOT a fans job or problem. Getting upset or starting fan wars or people throwing toxicity at other idols helps nothing at all. Kpop isn't that serious for fucks sake.
How is this even an issue, Taemin and Gikwang are friends.
Taemin has even talked about in the past how Gikwang and Eunhyuk helped him find his passion for dancing again when he was starting to lose it.
If you find similarities Gikwang might just be influenced by a friend that he respects.
They knew they were just hoping not to get caught. You think people are investing millions of dollars without due diligence Kek.
People invest millions of dollars withought proper due diligence all the time, especially when a lot of greed is involved.
Some massive capital allocators like Sequoia (a firm with 85 Billion USD under management) invested in FTX which turned out to be a giant scam.
And then there are clowns like Softbank and ARK that make billions of dollars disappear.
Softbank Vision Fund lost 730-billion-yen (5.6 Billion USD) last quarter, their 4th losing quarter in a row because they made a bunch of dumb speculative tech investments because the market has been going up since about 2008 because of the unnatural low-rate environment (that is now over).
I'm not even going to go into the mess that is ARK Investment Management they have gone from 50 Billion USD Under Managment to like 14 billion in two years.
You all must be new to SM........ SM has been putting political messages or statements that they think might appeal to teens and commercializing it since the 1990s. H.O.T's debut song was about bullying in Korea............
Their title track I Yah! is about victims that died in a school fire. The title track We Are The Future is quite clear in its meaning as well.
It's a marketing tactic they have been doing literally since the beginning, though they also do plenty of mindless bubble gum pop and dance music.
Completely agree. Most fans gravitate towards more popular groups simply because they’re popular and don’t take the tome to discover other groups. And being from a smaller company is a strike against these groups too. Big3 privilege exists
You have to admit low budget, bad music production, and lack of marketing from companies with low budgets is a big factor as well.
My opinion is not that bad I think, but to me the visual position is often the most useless position in the group and is sometimes given to member who don't have exceptional skills. They are usually become among the less popular members in the end and are rated as the least talented one in the group by many.
Visual might actually be the most important position, fans don't really care about talent as long as you meet the minimum requirement for the industry.
Plenty of groups have blown up because they have attractive members.
Also, plenty of examples of the most popular member in the group being the visual.
Congrats!! I love her voice so much. One of my fav voice (Hyolyn is the other one)
Aww, you all are so nice. Glad you like her voice. She also got a music show win, she was so happy:
"I can't believe that I won 1st place on a major broadcasting station music show. These day, every day feels like my birthday. This is my first 'Inkigayo' trophy in 15 years. I hope that another 15 years from now, I will still be able to greet you all with good music."
