 Looool I came across the clip from Scarlet Heart where Baek's prince character and his wife kiss.  I remembered finding that scene very amusing when I was watching it, but I never actually quite noticed the looks Baek gives her, not once, but TWICE.  The girl asks him if she's pregnant after she kisses him and that look he gives her is like, hahah not yet lol.  Then the SECOND time she asks before they go inside, it's even more obvious in his eyes/expression.  What's funny to me is that this was probably his best-acted scene in the whole show, bc most of the time he was just being goofy, i.e. basically himself.  So that tells me that he's very experienced in giving out that "look" lmao.

I know his type lol.

RIP to him being OMona's most-hated EXO member though.  I think the Kai stans basically changed that all by themselves with that last post lol.  Tbh, they definitely helped fuel my dislike of EXO initially though.  It just seemed like they were all constantly being douches, but honestly, when I actually looked through old posts to find out why, I found nothing gripping at all.  So they have some weird joke with Kai's skin tone, that's kind of their business and you really can't judge as an outside whether it's funny to Kai or not.  You can't be all, well he looked uncomfortable.  Like, I don't personally understand Korea's obsession with skintone.  I was looking at some beauty products on this one site and like half of them were for whitening or brightening skin lmao.  But you know what?  It's really not my business.  I'm not going to police their culture.

The only other things were easily debunked and the white power t-shirt lool, which I freaking seriously doubt Baekhyun is a white supremacist dudes so I wouldn't worry about a dumb shirt.  Supposedly people were also mad at him and that girl he was dating (and probably still is) for using their instas and group names or whatever to flirt with each other.  Personally I find that hilarious.  I like idol guys who give no fucks.

I've also now heard him singing live offstage and whatnot and he's definitely good.  I finally also saw a CBX perf where they were live.  I heard a lot of differences in their lines, plus extra breathing in lines during dance parts, but overall they were actually really good.  I didn't hear any flubs, though Baek was slacking in his dancing lol.  I think I already said, but I honestly am more into CBX than EXO, even though the latter are getting all the plays just by default.  I would be way more excited about a new CBX announcement though let me tell you.

I loved hearing that he would have been a vocal coach if he hadn't become an idol and I'm like yessss.  Sign me up lol.

 Two things really.  One, that I agreed with the consensus at Omona and two, that I more or less changed my original stance on it.  Unfortunately, my kneejerk reaction to SJW and people that come out with pitchforks, is to defend the person who's being attacked.  This is, of course, in reference to the Taemin and Kai comments on a girl group member's dancing.  So at first I was like, well, Kai didn't lie, most girl group choreo IS easier.  But after actually watching the clip, I realized that whether he was speaking truths or not, that wasn't the point.  The girl was talking about how difficult it was for HER and after doing a bit of the dance, was all out of breath and whatnot and the MCs then started to tease her, saying it didn't look tiring and things like that.

They then asked Taemin and Kai's opinions and Taemin essentially didn't address whether it was hard or tiring or not, but chose to comment on various techniques used.  Unfortunately, Kai basically went with the MCs and said it didn't look hard/tiring to him with some implication that boygroup choreos were harder anyway.  You could tell by her face that the comment was kind of a blow and the show reinforced it by adding an animation of a missile hitting her.

So obviously I'm very much not a Kai fan but I was more or less ready to defend him UNTIL I watched the whole thing and further saw his ridiculous stans bending over backwards to defend him.  Then I was like, yeah, no it was rude.  Someone at Omona made a good analogy of being a professional chef and sitting down to a dinner that someone put a lot of work into, but to you the food is underwhelming, so you go ahead and tell them that.  Like...?  That's just rude and inappropriate.  And mean and petty tbqh.  There's loads of other examples you could use, but I'm pretty sure no one would like to be told by someone that their effort was not that gripping bc that person personally doesn't find it hard or tiring.

What I seriously do NOT understand is why his stans were trying to defend that.  I'm serious, these stans were going all out with the excuses for why it wasn't rude or whatever, Idek.  Because, on what planet is that not rude and petty to elevate yourself by putting someone else down?  I mean, your biases are not perfect, it's not hard to say, yeah he shouldn't have said that and move on with your life.  It's just...really?  If the roles were reversed and it was Taemin who made the disparaging comment, I'd be like wow, that's a douchey thing to say.  I certainly wouldn't defend him.  Tbqh it might even have lowered my opinion of him a little bit.

Tbh Kai really annoys me anyway.  I find his inability to dial back so that EXO will look better as a group, very offputting, and I further think he's overrated as a dancer too.  Like, I'll take Taemin any day and I don't even really like SHINee.  But his stans make him even MORE annoying to me somehow.

 I keep seeing stuff saying that the King Loves isn't meeting ratings and expectations and all that and honestly, I'm not surprised.  It's convoluted and annoying.  Meanwhile, I've been putting off watching the last episode of Bride for who knows what reason.  I do this with dramas I like Idek lol.  I'll still probably finish the King Loves...probably.  I think I'm more than halfway through, but still, it could get worse lol.

Finally was able to get to a screen on One Hallyu to send my validation email.  Istg I've been trying to get into that comm for months now.  It's the only ifan hangout that has fairly sharp people who don't subscribe to the SJW hypocrisy.  I'm constantly amazed, though I shouldn't be, how freaking arrogant these people are.  With the Wanna One guy thing, they're now basically saying that Westerners and English takes priority over Korean.  Like, Koreans can't use their language in a certain way bc it triggers Westerners.  Like...what is this actual Western-centric arrogant hypocrisy here?    They're basically saying that Kpop idols should learn Western culture and proper English before being allowed to debut.  Honestly, fuck ifans.  Most of them don't even buy stuff so they're a small slice of Kpoppers incomes anyway.  They get way more from Asian countries outside of Korea vs Westerners.  But isn't it just typical that these people would do the absolute least but demand to be completely catered to?  

It's no wonder people stereotype "stupid Americans" around the world.  Acting like they and English are the top priority compared to anyone else.

Other fun things I found on ONeHallyu, apparently as a trainee Mark got in some argument with Hui that somehow also involved BAP's Youngjae and a Day6 guy translating lmao.  How the heck Mark.  Hui seems so easygoing too like hoooww lol.

I finally got into watching some Exo non-music stuff...well CBX anyway lol.  A few interviews basically.  I love the radio shows anyway bc the hosts are always so funny.  Them trying to explain the "hey mama" thing was amusing.  They oddly didn't seem to know?  It's basically old American slang and someone involved in the concept clearly knew bc the MV was all retro.  I also realized that Baekhyun doesn't have his ears pierced.  I find that super attractive just bc it stands out since most Kpop guys do have their ears pierced.  

Baekhyun is just such a music nerd lol.  And he has the sliest smile.  That tells me everything I need to know about him tbh.

That's fandom lol.  The thing is, I regret to inform you that I really don't honestly care what an idol says or does 90% of the time, 95% maybe.  Only real exceptions I make are criminal things.  And presumably those things are gonna end his career anyway lol.  So you will never shame me into disliking one of my favorite groups or idols due to something they said that you didn't like.  DOn't even try.

People need to understand that following groups or being a fan of groups/idols does NOT mean that you support everything they say and do unconditionally.  It also doesn't mean that you need to hate on them every two seconds when they fuck up either.  That's just virtue signaling half the time anyway.

But anyway! My ideal Kpop fall release scenario is 2/3 complete.  Pentagon and Exo coming back in early September, just need GOT7 to announce theirs now.  Depending on what Pentagon is doing, I can always wait for GOT7 when it comes to ordering anyway.  I do care about BTS lol, but not as much as those three.  Me and BTS are weird. On one hand, I really like their music and I really like Suga, but the rest of them and their group dynamic and concepts and all that, bore me.  I can't get into them at ALL.  I also don't find their stages or choreo gripping either.  Maybe it's also bc I hate their fandom, I'm not really sure.  I'm way closer to stanning EXO at this point than BTS.  I'm not even sure if I know all their names tbh.  I just know a lot of them start with J lmao.  And I probably couldn't pick anyone except Suga and Rapmon out of a lineup.  Otoh, I DO know all the EXO members all of a sudden and I think I could identify all of them too lol.  Ofc it helps, that I like five out of what, nine?  I kinda like Chanyeol too.  That is, I like his raps the best, but personally he sounds a little bit like a jerk lol.

In other random things, I had a smug the other day when I saw this person whining on Tumblr about how they kept seeing posts from Kpop fans about how real people shipping is disgusting and it was boohoo affecting her writing.  Like...lmao.  You should feel guilty and gross bish.  Those are called NORMAL feelings.  Because it is, sorry not really to say.  This one person I used to know, who lowkey stalked me, was this big fanficcer for Jrock, but then years later I ran into her somewhere else and she actually grew a conscience and said she no longer posted real person fic publicly.  Even though I still think she's trash, I had like 1% respect for her in that moment.

That's the very least you can do.  In the connected age where all these idols search for themselves online, it's really honestly disgusting and disrespectful.  If I were them, I'd be all, wow what fuckin' creeps.  Actually, would bet money they DO think that, but then they're all polite like GOT7 and just ask people to stop.  Just know, forreal, that's most likely what your oppas think of you.

 Because I came across this hilarious old thread in Omona about Taec's tower, though it's not hilarious for the reasons you might imagine.  That was the era where I hated Kpop and I was remembering all my complaints about it and one of them was that everyone looked the same, and that held up quite well as I looked through the pictures ppl were posting and legit wondering if it was the same guy.  Idk what it was, the hair or just companies just choosing samey-looking people I have no idea, but dude.

Also everyone in the thread sounded like a bunch of virgins posting what they thought were bulges and were obviously just bunched pants lmao.  Honestly the amount of ignorance.  I wonder if guys ever have the same debates on whether a chick really has big boobs or if it's all the bra lol.  But basically, like one of my guy friends said (who was a grower) that even though he was good size at that point, wished he had the "dangle" as it were lol.  And someone else in the thread even dumbly said that "bulge" doesn't equal big, well yeah it depends on what the bulge actually is, but the thing is, guys with big dicks can't hide them any better than girls with big boobs.  This is just logic people, honestly.

And while I'm discussing Kpop fan stupid, I came across this stuuuuuupid af post on Tumblr that basically was all, herpderp if you can assume idols are straight, we can assume they're gay!  derp.  Ok, someone posted a perfect response to this, saying that it's not about YOUR feelings it's about theirs and their culture says gay is largely not ok and they do not want to be seen as gay so you're disrespecting THEM by acting like that.

My response is statistics, bitch.  They are FAR more likely to be straight than gay so I'll go with the reality, thanks.  And besides, unless you're a gay dude yourself, what is even the reason for wanting them to be gay?  Females, istg.

In un-cranky things, I was watching the CBX Hey Mama lives again and the worst part about that group is not knowing who to watch lmao.  NOrmally I'd find my fave and try to watch him, but all three of theeeeemm omg.  I lean towards Baek, but just barely.
