Need to see their heels
Invincible Youth 3 - 2016 Edition.
Who you got? (pref. idols under 21 or 22 to keep with the theme - i believe that was all their ages in IY1 except Narsha and later Victoria).
Kei (someone from lovelyz but i dont know them well)
(Someone from OMG dont know who is decent at variety for them)
Hong Jin Young(possible token 'ahjumma' slot)
In my mind it is.
If only they keep the formula from the first half of season1 and not that garbage from season 2
invicible youth best variety show ever! id totally like to see a season 3

Here's the poll for Ultimate Artist of the Year 2015(Winner announced in around 24 hours):
Jisu instead of Kei so she can clear her name and prove she's not a rapist. Also Sojin as the group's aunt because the deserves it and because Hong Jinyoung's variety personality is way too annoying.
But I think much more important than choosing the idols would be choosing the comedian hosts. They are the ones who made season 1 and sunk season 2, imo.

Someone from Red velvet
This would be a reasonable list of people who they might want to push. Although I have left out a few companies who would want to find space for people in here eg DIA, cosmic girls and Lovelyz.
I'm not releasing the results for the same reason as last year, the geographical data segment is surprisingly accurate and would reveal the pretty much exact location of everybody, I assume not everybody want that information out there. If you want more information about a certain poll be sure to ask and I'll give you it.
No, they were eligible for best group and didn't win.
>No, they were eligible for best group and didn't win.
Doesn't that also apply to the best coed groups?
This ultimate artist poll seems more like "who will vote for the best female group vs. who will troll" than an actual poll.
44 (2014) -->30 (2015) people over 8 days for most voted category. Looks like our userbase has shrunk again. Do you mind sharing the reach of /hr/'s community with us? As in the regions (NA, SA, EU, ASIA, AU, NZ) our posters are from? I don't think anybody here would mind for something as general as that.
>tfw you're the spooky anon from trinidad who's identity based hr ama anon is protecting
I'm not sure of this feel, but it's an okay feel
Both are ok. Coco is prettier but I don't know enough about this group to grade them apart from their looks. Their company looks like one of those small nugu agencies which don't have the power to get them anywhere so I wouldn't have too high hopes for this duo. They appeared on Music Core last week for a debut stage but were nowhere to be seen today. Company couldn't afford a spot for them it seems.
It's part of poll-maker, I can't tell if it generalizes the data or it's specific but you can zoom to a very precise location. I felt it's better not to take the chance that it's actually accurate.
Not him, but isn't internet access the only requisite for enjoying kpop? I can only speak for myself, but thanks to the internet, I've come into contact with many groups and cultures I connect with much more than the ones I was born into.
Reach via small strands of glass surrounded by different glass and plastic sitting on the ocean's floor. Appeals because pretty girls and catchy tunes, not unlike everyone else here, I'd image.
There are too many groups to follow. I don't know anything about them except their face and maybe their name. The groups I already follow have more than enough for me to keep up with.

I record data from each thread
that's nice, but replace the following:
Kei with Jisoo, she has the potential of being the clueless/useless cute one
Joy with Seulgi or Wendy, we had enough of Joy with WGM
From OMG, Binnie would be another useless cute one, so Mimi could step up as someone more intelligent and prepared for the life in the countryside
That makes 3 of us. I'm a fan of AOA and I don't have to apologize for it. There seems to be one guy who always wants to complain about them here. I'm sure there are some qualities of your favourite group that made you follow them in the first place that don't quite click with fans of other groups. If you don't like other people posting about a certain group and it frustrates you so much, you can always leave and look for another community that is populated solely by the group you like, mate.
Yoonjo hasn't been with HV for a little over a year now. What little money she made with them is probably spent.
I remember Minah saying that she didn't get paid for years and I assume other idols are in the same situation.
>anything was better
You're exaggerating now.
Twice was shoved down our throats here and their song was garbo. Not only that, but JYP decided to promote them once more because they deemed 'so popular'.
I think we both know that for many of them, this is the best opportunity they will ever get in their careers and they'll most likely never make it if they lose and have to debut with their nugu companies.
Is the anon who understands Korean here? Can you translate this webcomic? It keeps getting posted by fan photographers on my twitter feed.
Hey moron from Kuala Lumpur, half your multiple voting attempts were screened by the website and the one that went through made no impact on the results even if you never voted at all. I can tell it's just you because everybody from Kuala Lumpur funnily seems to have voted for the exact same people every poll.
Because of your stupidity all your current votes for Ultimate artist are being deleted. To everybody else, you have till 22:00 UTC. Next year I'll audit the votes a little better to check for cheaters. May have screwed last years votes over but maybe not seeming as he had little impact this year but can't tell as I didn't use the same account.
At the top: >mfw my twitter friends look at me and say I'm cute
The box on the left seems to show his reaction online, saying "really?" and making cutesy sounds.
The text on the right, I think says >I don't know when I'll have to start denying it
His shoulders say "burly, bulky"
His phone shows a tweet from mr. mwamwa (not sure if the name references something): >you're cute!! [this is written formally, indicating the commenter doesn't know him personally]
His forearm seems to be identifying him as being (or being based on) actor Ma Dong-seok (pic related). I'm not sure what 트레 means here, it sounds like an abbreviation of some English word starting with "tre" but I can't figure out which.
Seeing how dal shabet is promoting now and happyface prolly spent all their money for their comeback I think it's unlikely minx will return. Maybe they'll throw another dal shabet b side at them to promote again lol.
Next time, we're making an anti-AOA coalition.
Seriously, though, I think this year did not have a very clear best group, so everyone else's votes got spread out, except for AOA's.
I can understand the anons who got mad, they feel like AOA's votes were more out of fanboying than them having had such a great year. You can't really escape this in any kpop poll, though, people will be biased towards their favorite groups and their waifus.
I was honestly more surprised by Vibrato's first place so far ahead of all other songs. There were some really great songs coming out last year.
I went to my brother's house yesterday. I looked at his external hard drive and he had some Korean dramas and movies on it. It's probably his wife's, but I didn't ask. Korean culture is really spreading around the states.
If you really do dislike some of the best of the genre, kpop probably isn't for you. There's nothing from any of the big labels short of perhaps some of the obscure solo performers with substantially more merit.
