 Lulz I just couldn't listen to something with a grayscale blank picture on Last FM so I had to turn Edawn's track into an album and put the picture he used for his Soundcloud.  I srsly love the song though.  It's great when some of these guys put their own random tracks up.  And that lowkey brings me to what I came here for lol.

Came across this old Twitter account of someone I used to follow in like 2010 or something and they were saying how Kpop was getting less talented or something, which ok, maybe that was kinda true in 2010 and 2011, the transition years I'd call them.  But that's a completely hilarious statement when you look at now.  In terms of dancing, rapping and singing, the talent quality of Kpop artists has gone WAY up.  I'm not completely a fan of that one Kpop vocal blog, but they're right about idols getting actual real training now.  Before, they just mostly sang in strained falsettos as far as I could tell lol.

I keep seeing this from old Kpop fans though.  This bitterness lol.  Like, no we don't have to appreciate the old groups, tbf, most of them sucked, and further, there's so much better about the music now vs then.  Less horrible ballads, more awesome dancing, rappers who can actually rap, singers who can actually sing, etc.  I hated old Kpop for a reason dude.

Speaking of singing, was watching some other random Triple H thing and Hui doing impromptu singing is my favorite thing.  Like, I'm lowkey disappointed when I watch something where he doesn't do it at all.  I was really digging the enka thing he started, and then the slow R&B 365 Fresh could have gone on forever too lool.  Quit wreckin' my bias, Hui. :<

In that same thing, I was highly amused watching Edawn and Hyuna keep in some kind of constant physical contact.  Even if it was just a foot or a leg.  She kept moving closer to him too and so did he at times. It's not as super obvious as HS and her, but I wouldn't be surprised if they had something going on.  Plus, I thought I saw a little circle on the same wrist where he has a little circle. Well if they do, all I can say is Hyuna has great taste in men lol.

ETA - I see that song Edawn put on his Soundcloud was made a month ago. Around the end of Triple H promotions. Hmmmm.

Now I need to pause Edawn to listen to this Halo album lol.

 Since everyone's talking about Hyunseung and Cube and where is Trouble Maker and all that crap, I have to put my two cents down.  I've been watching all this for awhile, obviously lol.  Tbh, before Shinhwa's Return, the whole TM thing is kinda what made me peep into Kpop a little more bc I was so surprised they'd have a co-ed group.  I didn't know anything about Beast or Hyuna.  Anyway.  Hyunseung has obviously always been a little weird, for lack of a better word (lmao maybe understatement of the century Idk), but it was pretty obvious that his attitude around Beast starting in mid to late 2015 had kinda gone downhill.  They barely paid attention to him and he looked like he'd rather be anywhere else.

/musical interlude

I know Kpop fans are delulu to the max and want to 100% believe every time their idol says oh we're not dating, or i'm not dating, plus their love of ridiculous gay ships, but the fact is, your idol bbs are lying to you bc they don't want to be stalked or their gfs attacked or lose popularity with their rabid delulu fans who think they're gonna marry 'em someday.  But I digress.

/end interlude

SO!  MY theory is that his attitude and the reason that Trouble Maker will never come back as him + Hyuna is bc those two were together and that was the year they broke up.  Obviously I have no /proof/ proof, but there's a few little clues that seem really obvious to me.  First of all, the way Hyunseung acted in later 2015 through 2016 was very much like a guy who's been dumped (I knew a guy who acted almost exactly like that after a breakup).  Moody, irritated, not caring about his appearance or anything else really.  Doing sort of extreme things, staying out of the public eye.  Maybe he couldn't deal with that and being an idol at the same time, who knows.

To me, it was pretty extremely obvious that they were together through most of Trouble Maker.  At the very least, you can contrast how Hyuna acts with the two Pentagon guys.  Not even CLOSE to the same level of touching and comfort as she was clearly enjoying with Hyunseung lol.  Unless those two were literally the best actors in the world (v.doubtful), they were absolutely fucking.  There were so many clues too, the way she looked at him all the damn time for one thing.  The choreo, that Now dance practice could not have been more obvious, HS's extremely obvious boner at the Mamas in what, 2012 or smth, plus the entire choreo of THAT performance.  Like, that's just a few examples.

THEN, what actually even started me down this ~conspiracy~ path was when I watched a recent Weekly Idol where Triple H appeared.  Did you see how shook Hyuna was when they played Trouble Maker?  Like, she literally froze, deer in the headlights style.  And you can't even say it was too old.  Because Bubble Pop came out in 2011 and she did that one just fine.  Not only did she not care to remember the Trouble Maker dances, but her response when the hosts asked her about it.  She basically brushed it off like, what's Trouble Maker?  I'm Triple H now.  Who does that unless they have some major hmmm negative feelings towards the other part of the unit.  Like, it was only four years ago lady.

Also, Trouble Maker was wildly popular in spite of the haters.  Would Cube seriously just let it go after two albums unless there were some serious problems between the members?  Honestly, the most maddening thing about it is that they should have shielded HS in some way from the repercussions of his behavior.  Obviously he was having a hard time and that's kind of their job to protect him.  They really half-assed it.  They said he had permission to miss things, then they said there was no way he was leaving and then oop he's leaving.

Idk what in the holy heck they're doing with him now.  Like, why did they even bother resigning him if they weren't going to give him a chance to do music how he wants to do it.  Instead floating around all this 3-member Beast nonsense and giving literally no information about his comeback.  I mean, yes, they could be quietly recording, but where's the promotion?  It's like, other than desperate Hyunseung fans (like yours truly), who's gonna even know?

Ugh, this is a long-ass blog, I'll stop now lol.

 I've been wanting to try Seventeen and SF9 for awhile, but then I got far too addicted to Pentagon.  I did finally try them out.  Apparently Seventeen is super popular?  How come I never see anyone talk about them?  They're good, but I like SF9 more actually.  Speaking of things I mean to try, I've had Ravi's solos for probably a month and keep forgetting to listen to them lol.  I'm sorta tempted to give DAY6 a chance too bc of how hilarious their second vocal/guitar is on Twitter.  Like, he seems legitimately weird.  But I just have a really hard time with these idol rock bands?  Idk why, since some of them make nice music, but I feel like if I'm gonna listen to rock I want to listen to "real" rock bands.  I know this viewpoint totally offends the fuck out of people but Idrc lol

Anyway, amg, peeping at Hyunseung haters after the news of his fanmeeting and solo came out.  Like???  To me, if people are legitimately haters of his, they're the real whiny bitches.  Idc if you're a fan or how you feel about them, but these idols are people too and you are NOT entitled to any kind of specific behavior from them.  They're not perfect and they're gonna fuck up and who knows why Hyunseung was acting that way and maybe he really didn't want to be in B2ST anymore, Idgaf. It's his prerogative frankly.  What I really love though is when they try to go in on the person's talent.  Like, fine hate on his attitude or whatever, but don't pretend the dude doesn't know how to sing or is a mediocre dancer.  

That's my favorite thing about Hyunseung specifically is when these salty bitches try to say that Hyuna was Troublemaker.  Like, really tho?  Because I saw their LIVE lives and she sucked, to say the very least.  HS can sing and further, he can sing live.  It's a good thing they didn't get another weak af male vocalist to partner her or that would have been truly awful.  It's not even that I dislike Hyuna, bc I do like her, but her talent is mediocre.  Even in Triple H, when they were live, the strength of her vocals compared to Edawn and Hui was so far below theirs it was laughable.  Let's admit that her main draw is her looks bc her dancing isn't much to write home about either.

I remember this one video where HS and her switched parts after a music show and HS very competently did her part. Ok, who am I kidding, it was hoawesome.  She barely got through two lines of his and then started laughing, probs bc it was sucking.

Hahah this is turning into a "things I hate about Kpop fans" blog.  But I have no problem with that bc there are a LOT. 8D

 Still watching Sparrow and my gosh is that Bicheng chick annoying.  She is such a flower vase.  Does absolutely nothing but pine over Chen Shen.  Even the actress chick is more tolerable than her.  Lol, Li Yi Feng is so hot in this though.  Like, this is a character I would write.  His face when he's listening to the actress girl's fake tears was straight hilarious.  He was all, wtf is this shit.  In other drama crap, I'm so tired of the romance in RMOM.  It's incredibly contrived and soppy.  You really expect me to believe they fell in love at first sight over some fireflies? Pleaaaase.  So annoying.  I'm lowkey mad that I'm still watching it tbh.

Lookout however, remains flawfree.  DF actually got the new eps out early today so I watched both right away.  I was so stressed when I thought Kyungsu was gonna get caught lol.  Damn that priest dude has a deep voice.  I haven't caught onto what his role is yet, but he's obviously helping Dohan in some capacity.

Meanwhile, in ridiculous Kpop that an UP10TION member had to take a break due to stress stemming from...get this, bullying over fake sex assault claims.  So not only is there a bunch of nonsense sex assault claims over there, but now freaking netizens can just accuse a guy of it and it sticks.  Like, what even.  I'm srsly sick of that even being a thing and everyone jumping to take the girl's side all the time, when more often than not it turns out to be fake, but CERTAIN sites don't even report the fakery.  No one stops to think for a second how the guy might be affected by having his name dragged through the mud. People are trash.

Then that whole TOP thing escalated quickly.  Apparently he overdosed.  I'm curious as to why they're all lying about it though.  The description of him being in a deep sleep is a total benzo overdose symptom so Idk why they're trying to spin it as something else.  It's unfortunate, but benzos are addictive and he should consider getting professional help.

Was watching all the Triple H bts stuff last night and whoaaaa Edawn is ripped lol.  He seems like such a weirdo too, but then he's all ripped.  Idk how to feel about that tbh.  Hui is totally not my type, but I still think he's cute.  Hyuna looks so good with the natural shade of red hair.

In completely unrelated commentary, it unreasonably bugs me when people refuse to use stage names.  Like, do you feel somehow cooler that you know their real names or are referring to them by their real names?  Idk, the whole fans always trying to be close to celebs in some way is weird to me.

 I'm slow, as I said before.  I get easily distracted and addicted to different things.  But I finally watched that Triple H MV that was supposedly so ~controversial~ and had Omona's panties in a tighter wad than usual.  And I have to say, wow have people become whiny babies and pussies these days.  That was the tamest shit I've ever seen.  The second Troublemaker MV was more explicit than that.  I really need to gif Edawn trying to strangle himself and make that my default Omona icon, or maybe default period.  I mean, really.  Are you telling me that you lot have never seen a movie depicting suicide and likely in a far more explicit context?  Because I've seen dramas that do, and movies.  That's all an MV is, is a short movie.  That's all songs are, little stories.  Wow, I would hate to be so uptight as these people.

Along with watching the MV, I watched a bunch of Triple H lives and a deal on Weekly Idol that was pretty hilarious.  I'm disappoint though that Hyuna had to do the Troublemaker bits by herself, I was really hoping at least E'dawn also knew them ahahah.  But I loved that she totally argued with those guys about the choreo.  I was agreeing with her at one point because I watched the heck out of the Troublemaker promotions and I know that choreo by heart.  I was like, she's right, SHE'S RIGHT.  The guys were so bored while she was arguing.  Though, later E'dawn was watching carefully and decided she messed up by her look, saying that would be his look when he messed up.  Then she was finally wrong lmao.

I guess this will be all about Kpop lol.  I'm suddenly super into Pentagon and pretty hype for their comeback.  I've largely been meh on them since they debuted, not that I didn't like them, but freaking ten members boy.  Who has time for that.  I still don't, but Triple H kinda made me pay more attention bc Hui is such a good singer and E'dawn is such an annoying rapper.  Wait, what?  No, srsly, his voice annoys me so much, but I also kinda love it so I don't really know what's going on there.  Those two and Yan An are the only members I really know in Pentagon.  I mean, I know some names, but couldn't connect them with faces.

Saw a bit yesterday saying that Hyunseung was getting his comeback in July, but it's a fucking SINGLE.  Like, what?  UGH.  The way the first article made it sound, it almost sounded like a full album.  But then the next article was like, ONE SONG.   That's so upsetting. HS is so fucking talented and he isn't getting much of a chance.

In other news, I'm the biggest Big Bang anti you will ever meet, though I try not to be super loud about it.  I'm kinda cackling in my corner at TOPPOT's scandal of late lol.  I feel the same way about that as I do Koki getting caught with it.  I have similar dislike of the two actually.  But mainly, you dudes know damn well that shit's hxc illegal in your country so you're a total dumbass for risking it.  Write all the letters you want, still doesn't make it smart.
