Does anyone like this group? Last I checked their Meet and Greet didn't even fill up one page. I mean a lot of people will bulk buy to resell later on, but the fact that they don't have any actual fans is kinda sad.
Even Oh My Girl did a lot better, granted their single was really great.
I'd sleep in her tent if you know what I mean.
You can just ask like a normal person, you know.
Not even 40 posts and already autosaging. Ridiculous.
Would complaining to this Hiroyuki fella help?
I really like them, the girls are great fun, I've been watching their long daily DIA videos and they don't disappoint. Yebin is a top qt >>2495687 and I think OP just likes variety.
For me, OMG was the debut of the year though, great title track, amazing side tracks, cool girls, fun live stages.
Not him but it's really petty thing to do, why don't they let us know we're not welcomed? seems like it's just a personal vendetta from some mod, it's really childish.
On the other hand, I thought that threads without autosage lasted longer but I think it's the same thing. So whatever thing they're trying to accomplish, it's not working.
why wouldn't she? she's still a strong young lad.
She is still riding on that appearance. See pic for proof.
Shocking, I know.
Most desirable idols among Korean army men. Suzy's popularity as nation's first love really went down the shitter after the news of her sex escapade with her actor boyfriend overseas.
kek, this has to be a joke
>hey let's photoshoop a massive tits on this flat idol
>oh and put them off-center, that way nobody will be able to tell that they are fake
Suzy is still popular with the general public
Army Popularity is basically if the girl is cute + how much fap fuel of her there is
Suzy doesn't do a lot of sexy shit so she wouldn't be topping the list
she's not skinny tho
Welp my album just came in and it has the same thing. What's worse is that you can tell that the albums were already damaged before she signed them because the ridges catch some of the marker ink causing a serrated look.
Did you see her Midnight Section TV cut bro. I didn't buy much into the hype around her beauty until I saw her in the park scene. She's so pretty with that styling and makeup it hurts.
It was an AOA concert so they performed AOA black songs too according to fan tweets.
All 8 members ended the show performing Love is Only You. One of my fav songs.
as always.. i missed so many songs the first time i looked at the last thread wtf

Might as well throw the Seventeen on here, there's a notice on the page under "album info" that says you can't buy it in Korea, just watch the Meetngreet
So if you're tryna make some cash... perhaps...

I saw this! Pretty classic mnet shenanigans... super mean. I just watched ep 2 yesterday and what Jessi was saying about her was kinda true though.
But! I was meh on Yezi until her resting bitchface was too hilarious for me not to love so there's that~
Half of the lucky bags have items worth $100. I'm not interested in any of the groups, but I thought I'd share. I bought 2 lucky bags from mwave last year and got gaypop.
You choose the group and they'll put at least $40 worth of items from that group in a bag. You have a 50% chance of getting a bag worth $100. The other bags have will have items that are worth $40-$90.
It looks like mostly albums, which doesn't seem useful for fans who already own physical albums.
The only things that seem special are the magazines and the calendars that won't even arrive until the year is over. Seems like a pretty big waste of money unless you are just starting a collection.
Food, accommodation and clothing are provided though. 100K won goes a long way for snacks and he should be glad he's even getting pocket money. Other companies that aren't SM, YG or JYPE don't even give their trainees a single cent for pocket money.
ITT: people who aren't intrigued by the thought of burning foreign monopoly money, and would consider it less interesting than receiving a few pictures and posters of suit-wearing Korean fellows pulling blue steel and magnum poses, with admittedly well applied eye make-up and hair
The new Big Bang songs are good if you're new to male kpop.
These are good too.
Alright this is the definition of gaypop, not that there's anything wrong with that, whatever suits your fancy.
Big Bang is alright, they have good MVs it's good club music. I like Bang Bang Bang except for the retarded chorus.
CN Blue, one of their songs I quite like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pUfHnWRsRA
I listen to kpop on the radio so a lot of male kpop gets played but I'm not sure who or what I'm listening to most of the time.
I do agree with most of the others though that lets keep it to the girls in here. There's far to much wailing and shitty male stuff designed to get little girls wet. fuck that noise.
hmm, that white dot on her arm looks like it's from a smallpox vaccine. I thought they stopped vaccinating people 50 years ago.
yes it is you ballbag stop pretending you own the threads and let people talk about whatever band they want if it doesn't have a thread already. You're the reason this place doesn't get 1000+ posts per thread
lord knows they arent having anything else to sub. CL pretending like she's going to have success in America. Bom "reflecting" and Minzy opened her own dance studio since YG won't get her any gigs.
>Some rumors going around about this matter say that the deal that Wang Sicong made with T-ara is that he'll give each member a Ferrari
Sounds like total bullshit to me.
well it means the rumor isn't a complete shot in the dark
on the right is soyeon and this is a pic from her birthday party he threw for her
why the fuck would exid be there if they didn't have something going on with the guys company
wau lookie what else i found
i read years ago that the kpop industry is heavily subsidised by the govt to push hallyu as a south korean brand for economic trade with other countries and a lot of the money these companies spend is provided by the government. i can't find the article anymore. it was on the economist or newsweek site iirc but here is the wiki page on hallyu mentioning its support from the government.
>On October 6, DSP Media stated that excluding Youngji, the three KARA members' exclusive contracts would be running out at the end of the year. The agency stated, "Gyuri, Seungyeon, and Hara signed the contracts two years ago in October of 2013. Their re-signing hasn't been decided yet. We plan to decide after having a meeting with the members and the agency."
I´l say the renew for another two years and then its done.
I will never understand why people give a shit about some arbitrary post count or number. You're like forum posters who care about peoples post counts. What good is it is half the posts are trash. I'd much rather have very few high quality informative posts.
Just look at the other thread, you could remove virtually every post and nothing of value would be lost.
What's more important is people having the freedom to post and talk about what they want on an anonymous board based on freedom without a select few making up arbitrary rulesets that really have no reason to exist except their opinion and that they do not like it.
>The South Korean government has also made a commitment by earmarking 1% of its national budget towards spending in the form of subsidies and low-interest loans by fostering its cultural industries through the launch of creative agencies to promote and expand K-pop exports to drive creative and economic growth, and setting up more cultural departments at universities to nurture a talented workforce needed to support its burgeoning entertainment and creative sector.
God bless South Korea.
Hyuna looks great with this hair color.
You really should be saving her pictures. . .
KARA has lost the last bit of its popularity in Korea. I feel bad for Youngji because it was like a dream come true when she got to join an established group but in reality they have been fading away.

Man, the Korean physical album market is really desolate. What's worse is that these physical albums sell for 10~15 USD each so I bet they are making a loss in this department. No wonder companies are so desperate to get CF and TV deals for their idols.
It always surprises me how OMG is doing so well, Mamamoo gets all the praise in the press and they're doing just slightly better than them.
WM must be doing something good at promoting them.
I'm impressed with Taeyeon
I highly doubt that they're making a loss albums, else they wouldn't sell them. The albums aren't that decadent to the point where it would cost over 12 dollars to make each one that they'd incur a loss, even though they are much fancier than physicals here in the states
I agree with you that they probably aren't losing money on them, but when you consider how much an online sale is profit, they can't be nearly as profitable. I'm surprised that they put so much money into them. 22+ dollars for the Blady was worth it, but at that point they're closing out sales on the less interested fans and the girls.
But all of the physical albums I own I have also got online so it's pretty much a secondary sale. I don't even listen to most of the CDs, I just keep them untouched inside.
oh yeah digital sales of anything are waaaayy better for dat money thatn physicals, but isn't the asian physical market still more active than our western one?
hanteo is only physical sales, right?
Only in inland provinces. All of the costal provinces are getting pretty big. Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guanzhou, Maccau, HK, Taiwan. Just a couple massive cities that come to mind. It's not like CDs are more expensive there and shipping would be cheaper since it's not over the pacific.
>dat funny japan style 1440*1080 res
This triggers my autism a little, reminds me of our old tv with 1024*768, but 16:9.
Looks like another Yu Jae Suk show that's going to get canned soon
>Running Man getting bad ratings
>I Am A Man cancelled
>Sugar Man is nothing
How is he the national MC if all his shows sink?
Some girrls day fancams from that army show. Looks like they forgot Harry somewhere in Japan.
I like how Sojin gets her shit slapped in Darling.
her having blonde hair was her best feature imo
Has nothing to do with population, it's all about how you market and how much you protect.
Japan for example has the second largest music market in the world behind the US yet the country is the size of an American state.
They have strict and huge anti-piracy laws, incentives for buying physical albums, and the whole culture of people obtaining music physically.
As for South Korea, the government subsidizes some things for KPop domestically and internationally and receives a percentage back. Also South Korea historically has had piracy issues.
>Japan for example has the second largest music market in the world behind the US yet the country is the size of an American state.
biggest american state is california at 37mil. Japan is at 127mil tho...
If you like Seolhyun and enjoy wasting money on kpop:
seolhyun.kr fansite 2016 calendar
I bought this Nana fansite photobook 2 years ago and it is the best kpop merchandise I own.
Pungdeng-E is so cute. I wish they were more popular!
I'm sure you wanted to make a coherent sentence, but something went horribly wrong in the process.
Damn dude, I dont like 2ne1 but I think that's bullshit
YG can be one cold mofo to his idols
I never realized how tiny these girls were.
Gotta wait for the albums to be released and people to rip the Blurays/DVDs. Nothing is free in Japan and you have to buy special editions that are expensive as fuck in order to get a bonus disc which contains the full MV and a Making Of video. This is why the Japanese music market is so profitable and all the kpop groups want a piece of the pie.
Word. Which makes kpop albums all the more value for money with the photo books, posters and photocards and creative packaging all for less than $20. It's sad the koreans don't even care about these amazing dirt cheap physical kpop albums unless they are dedicated fans.
For kpop albums you mean? Yeah it's frustrating to get bonus content in the form of SD videos when you buy limited edition kpop albums.
I'm guessing it's because nobody bothers to buy physical albums so the companies say fuck it and throw everything into DVDs instead of spending more to print Blurays.
