Blackface In K-Pop Part 2: Return of the Fuckery

This also marks the return of Hoshi being the “cuteness break”, because this post has a lot of ugly in it.

Over a year ago I made this post (you get a cookie if you can make it through my shitty writing) addressing what is and what isn’t blackface within the realm of Korean entertainment because I saw so many people accusing a lot of shit in K-pop such as G-Dragon in “Coup D’tat” and Hyuna’s tan as “blackface” when it really isn’t, and that kind of stuff de-legitimizes actual cases of blackface. I still stand by most of what I wrote in that original article (some of the stuff I’ve changed my mind on, and other stuff I’m kind of on the fence about, I might make another post addressing that later-it actually shocks me how immature I sound in the intro of that article) and I thought it was possible Korean entertainment was over blackface and it could move on from shitty race-baiting gimmicks for laughs.

Oh I what a fool I was. Because this year has been utter hell for blackface.

Disclaimer: For those of you who don’t know, I’m a black female in university with a good knowledge of history. So for those of you who claim I don’t know what the fuck I’m talking about, yes the fuck I do.

WARNING:  This post contains offensive imagery. I will try to balance out with cute pictures of Seventeen’s Hoshi but just know it get’s nasty.
