 Fooinally finished Beast Showtime.  Definitely made me laugh more than any other Kpop reality show and I kinda like Yoseob and Gikwang now, though with slight reservations bc Idk who had to do with what when it comes to HS getting kicked out.  Various observations herein.  But first, LMAO @ the subber of the last two shows.  Literally had an explosion of butthurt when they were in the karaoke thing and Yoseob was mocking a Seo Taiji song.  Like, dude, sub the damn video, don't put in your whiny opinions.  I think Seo Taiji is the Korean Yoshiki and completely overrated with his bad Korn-copy music of the early 00s so I was actually cracking up at Yoseob's headbanger act.  

The other thing, that end bit where they were making fun of HS made me all D;  Like, wow this is the first time we've seen him be smart.  Idk Idk, I don't want to get all up in analysis like a bunch of dumb fans like to do for all these people.  But there was a marked difference in his behavior in 2015 after his solo.  Like he completely stopped caring about the other members or what they said to him.

Anyway, no news on the HS comeback front.  Le sigh.  I just hope after Pentagon stops promoting that Cube will say something.  People are gonna be real mad if they announce plans for Hyuna and CLC but not HS.

You what's funny, before I got into Kpop and just observed it from the sidelines, I used to think there was like a scandal a day, but now I realize it's honestly mostly nothing except Ifans making a fuss about nothing.  I understand now too why Kfans hate Ifans.  Just over the last weekend there was Omona posting about so-called whitewashing of idols.  See these people's agenda could not be more clear.  They want Asians to fit under their neat little POC umbrella, but it becomes kinda hard and ridiculous when they find out that there are plenty of East Asians that are lighter in skin tone than the average northern European, which I mean, don't get me started on SJW stupidity, but let's be real here.  The thing is, the source post had all the reasonable comments with people saying how many of these idols they've met in person and that yes, a lot of them are very pale and in fact, were probably chosen even because of their pale skin tone.

And honestly, who cares what fansites do to their pictures?  Eventually you'll see them in some kind of casual video context and easily see what their skintone is.  It's obvious to me, for example, that Edawn is very pale and so is Suga from BTS.  People in the comments confirmed seeing both in person and that both were easily the palest in their groups.

What's actually funny to me though, in these people's constant anti-European rhetoric is that if you observe fandom, you'll see that the member who goes blond in a comeback often gets the most attention.  I remember when I first got into GOT7 and Mark was blond for awhile, everyone was swooning over him.  MOst recently though, Youngjae went blond and people were all over him with "slay" and "flawless" comments.  I saw it again recently with another group that I can't remember right now.

Then from there, we have Kai doing the dreads with Exo, which unrelated, but lol he is not hot.  I see so many comments about how he's literally the hottest male idol in Kpop right now and I'm like huh?  I don't see it at all.  His looks are completely average to me.  But most noticeable is the lack of dragging he got for the dreads vs Jackson.  Which sort of adds to my theory that I think people couldn't wait to drag Jackson for something ever since his shipping comments. But since most of civilized KPop fandom frowns on shipping, they had to leave that alone until something else came up.
