Like most people, I got beef with 2NE1’s disbandment and his general treatment of the group in general. Sure in the groups later years I wasn’t a huge mega fan, and I may not have stanned CL’s solo efforts hard; but my main beef isn’t even with CL or any member of 2NE1, it has always been YG (the person). 2NE1’s disbandment truly, did not have to happen. Bom’s scandal didn’t have to go down like it did – don’t even get me started on the whole Taehyun situation or how he met his wife.
What up biaatch? Long time no see. Nothing bad this time, I’ve just been prepping for school/work an also traveling. I was running kind of low on blogging juice until some gold fell into my lap; K-pop is dying yo!
I’ll admit, when I first got into K-pop I was a bit of a talent enthusiasts which I quickly grew out of when I learned that “talent” is about as interchangeable and/or varying as an idols hair color throughout an entire year. But one thing I’ve never understood, is the notion that an entire genre sucks or is dying, because the talents of the mainstream artists don’t reach my standards.
I know, it’s been forever since I’ve been working this post, but it’s finally here. Enjoy!
I picked a picture with Sulli on purpose. This is a post about f(x) as a whole and to not include Sulli would be disrespectful because she’s been in f(x) more than she’s been out.
So this is the start of a new thing I want to do where I talk about some of my favorite artists as sort of a “spotlight” piece; only it’s going to be a bit longer than spotlight pieces. I’ll basically be talking about what I like about the group or soloist, as well as where they are now and how they’ve developed in terms of sound and aesthetic. I figured f(x) would be the perfect group for the first one because they’re my favorite group, and they’ve also reached veteran status among groups, meaning they have more development material.
I was late on this comeback per usual these days but I didn’t want to sit back on this because it’s definitely significant in a way that I couldn’t get across in a basic review. A lot of people have been comparing (and having similar reactions to) “Babe” to IU’s “23” and “Palette.” I have to say, it’s interesting seeing Hyuna take a crack at that since Hyuna is kind of like the polar opposite to IU in terms of image and music, yet both have made an impact in K-pop especially with female idols, and now we’ve seen them almost join hands with this refreshing coming of age concept that I am both excited and happy to see.
*I want to preface this article very quickly to say thanks to those of you who sent support over the article I wrote about the future of this blog. It really does mean a lot to me- thank you, thank you, thank you!*
Sulli while still remaining popular and well liked by many also has her fair share of people who will rip and ridicule her for quite literally the most basic shit such as minor drunk injuries,cutting a bit of her own hair before a major hair cut, and enjoying social media. And thus she’s been hit by majority of media and has had numerous click-bait articles written about her because rather you love or hate her, Sulli=clicks in Korea which means more chump change for armchair journalist, however the most recent hit from media has to be the worst.
