Script to change file names to hangul
Damn I thought most of them were college students with too much time on their hands. Somehow the knowledge of these fancammers being old-ass men who could be the fathers of the idols creeps me out.
Who else do you think can afford swagged out cameras? Though admittedly I've seen some girl fan photographers/cammers at kpop concerts and they were not only young but qt.
I think it's a bit unreasonable to demonize them though. You don't stop suddenly liking things like pretty girls or catchy beats when you pass a certain age.
Most of the fancammers and fan photographers are college students and younger people. >>2547989 isn't even a good piece of evidence that most of them are middle-aged, I see only 1 or 2 dudes there you'd call old.
DSLRs aren't expensive to the point of being unaffordable.
>I think it's a bit unreasonable to demonize them though. You don't stop suddenly liking things like pretty girls or catchy beats when you pass a certain age.
Yeah but when you become old enough to be their father and you're a married man with daughters their age it just becomes inappropriate and creepy to follow them like that.
>Yeah but when you become old enough to be their father and you're a married man with daughters their age it just becomes inappropriate and creepy to follow them like that.
lol they can follow them with their daughters and just say "my daughter is a fan ㅋㅋㅋ"
cute armpit pussy.
I forgot I was dealing with Burgerclapistan levels of comprehension here. The fathers in Korea with daughters the age of Tzuyu are in their 40s-50s. If you're in your 40s or later and still following kpop idols like smile wa does it's plain creepy. Heck early to mid 30s is already pushing it. Get an age-appropriate hobby, creep.
>you must like things your age
Oh my god you're going to be a boring grown up, I feel sad for you my man. I'm not talking about obsessive-compulsive behaviour btw, that should receive the proper medical attention (like saesangs).
not even mad, but imo everyone should do the things they love to do as long as it's not against the law, regardless of what other people think. your personal happiness is more important, otherwise you'll just be a miserable adult.
So you're just underage and can't really picture people just enjoying kpop instead of jacking off? got it. And as long as that -wA- dude doesn't go overboard, why the fuck do you care?
Feel free to think you're superior for doing things your age, I'm not even past 24.

Best debut song
Worst popular song of 2015
JIMIN N J.DON - GOD
Worst choreography of 2015
Girls Generation - lion heart
Say it isn't so... :(
On the bright side, she'll be back on weekly idol next week. It's a best of 2015 episode.
151227 SBS Gayo Daejun perf cuts
Will you guys get angry if I keep posting her? They are the only pictures I have and all of them are new. Nobody is posting anything else sand I feel like the news sites doing mediaplay for FNC.
spoiler that shit D:
yeah sbs gayo daejun was really shitty. nothing but a glorified doubly long episode of inkigayo.
It's a bit light and mainstream type dance remixy for me. I'm very much more a hard, dark and underground party kind of guy. For dance music anyway. The other side of me loves cute bouncy k-pop.
a few years back some nong posted an almost perfect kpop list of good stuff for the year, but their first song was so offensively bad that it made me question whether the rest of their picks, and thus my taste was fundamentally broken.
Dahye has been missing from action whole December. i hope she is okay.
she's ok bro
My SOTY list. Please don't make fun of me too badly.
A few honorable mentions in no particular order:
Don't really feel like compiling a long list but I do have some favorites I felt like I wanted to put out there. I feel like Automatic doesn't get talked about enough and it's really good
There were a lot of great songs this year, so I can't really pick SOTY, but here are some favorites of the ones I can remember.
I imagine that it's a expensive hobby. They use expensive camcorders and cameras, they have to spend money on travel, they have to buy tickets to shows, they might miss work, and a bunch of other things that I cannot foresee. It's something only the dedicated and well-off can do.
Anyone know where I can download this in 1080i?
I saw a thread on dcinside, but the links are already dead.
Not to be rude, but Wonder Girls' I Feel You and Primary's Don't Be Shy are really average 80s and reggae songs, respectively; it's really a shame to see them in anyone's top of the year songs.
Damn, you had an awesome list until AOA....
I don't know about that, do you remember the Happy Together special with those awkward fanboys? neither of them were wealthy at all, but they all finished college and had jobs. I imagine is more on the "having no life" side, spending all your time traveling to see them instead of doing other "normal" things.
Come on, why people say that? it's a really girly thing to say. I'm not saying you shouldn't like them, but there were better songs from this year (like any other WG song in their album, for example).
I'm not shitting on anyone, I'm just calling those songs average, you shouldn't take it personal. And it's not my taste against your taste, I want to discuss music, since I can't on /mu/; but if you're getting tumblr on me and saying "well it's your opinion" then we should stop here.
>Damn, you had an awesome list until AOA....
If you want a civil discussion about music then don't attack somebody's taste or opinion at the get go. Maybe being on /mu/ kpg has programmed you to become that way in which case you should stay there and tumble in that pig sty of shitposting, hating on each others groups, and gay erp.
I'm the guy who posted that list. I just think Heart Attack (along with most of AOA's songs) extremely catchy. I normally don't go for those types of songs but AOA does it in a way that I really like. That's really it. The music video is shit though that's why I posted the choreography version. Have to say though I'm glad someone else liked the rest of the songs on that list.
I'm not even going to bother replying you after this if you can't even be bothered to read the previous thread to look for it. I don't mind if people tried to the best of their ability to search for or fix something but couldn't figure it out. But I can't stand it when it's "I've tried nothing and I am all out of ideas, please spoon feed me".
Jesus calm down, you are really from tumblr/reddit aren't you? in what way my post was an attack? I thought it was actually friendly (since I called you awesome), at worst it was very 4chan of me. And I'm sorry that you feel superior posting in here.
With my comment I was looking for a reply like this >>2548804, and how can I talk bad about that? they were indeed looking great.
Everything gets stuck in the kpg. Yeah you get an insane knowledge of all the groups and songs in kpop... but what else?
You just get stuck repeating the same topics.. same ideas same arguments same bait same people same pictures same everything.
I always said why am I always so sad? And why do I always complain about being sad? Why do I keep remaining to whine and whine and do nothing?
Well, I post in kpg all day and yell at why nothing ever changes. And that's because I refuse to change. I choose to post here everyday. I choose to allow myself to get depressed and angry over things that don't matter and will never change.
Just like this post. How different is this post compared to the multiple times I've posted something about depression or how everything sucks and that I should do something?
I've done jack shit except post here. Same thing, every time. And the same result too. Shit, I'm here right now. I seriously am so upset with myself now. It has nothing to do with you guys or kpg, but it has everything to do with me. I need to grow up. That's all I'm going to say.
is she?? fuck I thought she was one of the new ones
I'd never post the black one, nothing against black people but on top of not being attractive, she's not photogenic.
M-maybe 2016 will be better for them, Demonstrate was a really good song.
and btw, this episode of Happy Together was really funny
Special with Korean-American celebrities
>tfw they were all bullied
and really harsh (that wasn't the funny part though)
they felt it was time for a change, I read it wasn't the first time, the sauna wasn't the first "season"
but now it relies even more heavily on guests, if they're boring not even Jaesuk can save the episode
Can't pick SOTY but here's a few I liked from each artist in no particular order. Also just noticed I have almost the same number of favorited tracks for 2015 and 2014. Consistent. I think I liked 2014 more though.
idk i prefer pharkil and drighk cos they have great camera techniques for nice closeup shots
datanews sph is good at those too and he has a press pass which allows him to film fancams where other fancammers can't
he's a retard who censors and cuts his fancams tho
I already posted my playlist and it isn't precisely "the best", but here it goes again:
>tfw for some reason nobody liked Fool
I think it's really strange, it's a great song.

damn. kpop ruined my life because one of the idols is all i can think about it from the moment i wake to the moment i fall asleep. i even dream about her.
i'm dysfunctional, basically.
>kpop ruined my life because one of the idols is all i can think about it from the moment i wake to the moment i fall asleep. i even dream about her.
Kpop didn't ruin your life...
>i'm dysfunctional, basically.
Ruined your life.
You should legitimately consider seeking out therapy.
>kpop ruined my life
Why do you think your life is ruined? It's not.
>all i can think about it from the moment i wake to the moment i fall asleep. i even dream about her.
What you think about is what you experience and how much focus you put on something. If you're looking at pictures and videos of a person on a daily basis then it's going to be hard to not think about them. If you don't want to think about then you need to make something else more important and keep your attention on that. You dream about her because you're always thinking about her. If you made something else important like playing an instrument and spent all day practicing, reading, watching videos of people playing, talking about it with others, then that will consume you and won't be thinking about some girl because she'll be less important, thus taking up less space in your head.
No, you're just not setting priorities and don't know what you want in life from a lack of experience.
i'm not crazy and i wouldn't want harm to come to anyone.
i was normal 5 years ago before i got into kpop. therapy wouldn't help, i'm so madly in love it's crippling. besides, i'll probably be laughed out the room if i revealed my obsession with kpop and that i was in love with a korean pop star. i'm a 25 year old white male for your reference.
i wish it was that easy.
has anyone gotten as deep into it as me where it's affecting your life negatively? how did you get out?
>i'm so madly in love
I've been in your place and I can say that you're going to get over this eventually. There was an idol, and then another I used to "love" but realized how pointless it was to have someone I don't actually know take up headspace. Love fantasies with celebrities or anyone are like drugs, they feel good in the short-term but are bad for you in the long-term. You can appreciate their beauty on stage like you would watching a sunset, but obsessing over them is really silly because what you see isn't the whole story. They're not as beautiful with all of their make-up off, there are loads of girls who look and behave just like them if you looked, and you have no true idea of what they're like when the cameras are off. You start to realize how dumb it all is. In a few years you'll look back and think "Damn, I can't believe I felt that way about this girl."
Anon #29851's favorites in no particular order:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSEtAC8wkhw I like it better than Paradise Lost
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmAcmJskM1o How is there no MV for this? Preview was uploaded 2 months ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j43TlmkR0aU
And I want to add GSD to my list because they're my favorite group, but neither did I like Ring my bell or Hello Bubble that much... The refrain of Ring my bell is really catchy tho, so...
Everyone else's taste is shit.
>you're going to get over this eventually
it has been so long i don't know anymore. i said 5 years but it was more like 7 years. the first 2 years were just casually looking at kpop videos and the next 5 were full blown kpop obsession. i don't think i have ever spent as much time or energy for as long as kpop in my life. but thank you for your words, i guess deep inside we all already know how much of a fantasy kpop waifuism is and how ridiculous it is but sometimes you just need to hear it from somebody other than yourself.

Hey, not to say you should definitely go to therapy or that therapy would certainly help you, but I think you have a wrong impression of it. Therapists do deal with obsessive behavior and addictions. You would not be laughed at and I'm sure your therapist would have seen cases that are much worse than yours.
The human pair bonding mechanism is probably useful for the continuity of the species. It shouldn't really occur without actual contact and sex, but kpop manufacturing companies definitely try to exploit it; it seems they've succeeded with you.
The cure is finding yourself a girlfriend/wife, or at the very least, someone to have sex with. The effect will seem stronger when both the psychological and contact aspects are in play, so your infatuation with the waifu will evaporate in short order. You will also realise that pedestalising love interests is absolutely stupid once you are in a position to witness their downsides.
It's also worth keeping in mind that 'the effect' diminishes with each successive partner: once you've had enough different partners, all the magic is gone, and you're down to pure utility once lust has worn off.
Yet another anons™ song list
Others have posted lists of the best songs so this is a list of songs that deserved more attention than they got:
you scared me for a while with the first songs, I thought it was my list and I forgot about posting it
Paradise is great, nice IUesque song; Hey Jude is such a fun track and she composed her whole mini, which is impressive; and I thought I was the only one into Yeon Bunhong, Please Make Me Ugly is my jam.
Not that anon, but this seems to be it.
This looks like a very nice tistory, btw.
The official list by 'News Tomato':
1. Girls' Generation
5. Red Velvet
8. A Pink
9. Girl's Day
11. miss A
13. Brown Eyed Girls
15. Wonder Girls
17. Nine Muses
What is included are digital song downloads, physical album sales from the Gaon chart, Melon's YouTube score, how many number one trophies the group won on the four main music shows (M! Countdown, Music Bank, Music Core and Inkigayo) and MV views.
based Twice in the top 15. I'm happy with this.
You're probably used to straight TV captures, which would be ~20mbps mpeg2. This is a 3mbit h264 transcode, the guy who did it just chose not to deinterlace or downscale. So it's still the same resolution, but at a lower bitrate.
Are you really doing this right now, chingoo? Really?
That __guri thing is for every member. 다구리, 모구리.
I don't want to file through tons of Twice videos cause you won't believe me. You'll just have to get good on your own.
>I don't want to file through tons of Twice videos cause you won't believe me. You'll just have to get good on your own.
then I guess we'll never know for sure, because I've never heard them call her Minaring.
Guys don't fight, just call her "anon's wife"; that's me btw.
Weird, it looks like my name is anon, chingoo. ;)
> How much did the shipping cost?
It's hard to say without having downloaded the file, but judging from the bitrate and assuming the guy used good encoding parameters, it could be somewhat better than what you'd typically find on youtube. It is probably noticeably worse than the original TV broadcast, though, because 3mbps should be too little for a transparent encode of a show with lots of movement like running man.

Why were you kidding? It might happen to cheska cos fiestar has a serious chance of making it in 2016. She's even crawling back to reddit to do an ama to stay relevant and promote her rap or whatever the fuck she claimed she left fiestar to do.
>Talks about how people have divided opinions on Korea's current age system, which counts every year you were alive whether your birthday passed or not. So a baby born on December 31st will be counted as a one year old and then a two year old on January 1st.
The fuck? I never paid much attention to the Korean age thing because it was just real age +1. But it turns out a baby can be officially 2 years old a few days after birth. Why the fuck would they keep this retarded system? The child will obviously be struggling to keep up with peers biologically older than them during their critical developmental phase. I would understand if some retarded system like this was still in place if it was a third world country where they don't care about their kids' education or development but in Korea? Wtf man.
it's technically guided by the lunar calendar I think
but a baby is just "2 years old" but doesn't turn 3 when dec 31 reaches again and then 4 years old on the new year
they have a word for that "man X years" (I don't have a korean keyboard right now) but this is used to difference "full" years and just lunar years
It makes no difference. If schools in your country also group children in grades which are advanced one per year, then you can't avoid having children that are 1 year minus 1 day apart falling into the same grade. It's just a matter of lack of precision. The only way to fix this alleged problem would be to split grades into smaller periods of time.
But if you look at how children actually reach different developmental phases at wildly different ages, you should realize that a one year precision is fine.
The only drawback to Korean age is that if a westerner tries to calculate in which year a Korean was born based on his age, he might get a wrong result, and vice-versa.
Exactly, this is a non-issue as long as you know about it.
I actually read the comments now. These people are retarded.
>and isn't it better to be one year younger than one year older?
You don't become physically older if people say you're X+1 years old. So, no.
>I think change is needed while we can.
Like before WWIII?
I'm using K-Lite Codec Pack.
usually only /g/tards complain about codec packs because they don't need them for their chinese cartoons, but they're useful and they are not outdated (at least not k-lite and cccp)

Hong Jin Young, Tae Jin Ah, Ailee, Girlfriend, Oh My Girl, Wonder Girls, Infinite, SNSD, Sonamoo, 17, BTS, Mamamoo, Red Velvet, Lovelyz
no Twice, but at least OMG, Lovelyz and Sonamoo are there.
Well I have been watching these every year since 2009 but I leave it playing on a separate screen while I browse the internet on my main screen and only pay attention when the groups I care about are performing.
Note that the thumbs there have the correct aspect, though.
If your codecs are the ones messing up the aspect, using something better would fix it.
I was gonna finally download the torrent just to look at this file, but I opened it and everyone is stuck at 99.9%, so I don't want to risk being stuck being stuck with an mp4 missing its headers or something like that.
can you guys make out who is there in the reflection?
