AOA concludes promos after 3 weeks

Article: AOA 'three weeks of promos concluded' with 'Bingle Bangle'... fanmeet on the 30th

Source: Sports Chosun via Naver

1. [+360, -35] Normally groups promote for at least a month but they ended it after just three weeks..

2. [+380, -99] Can't help that their songs sound bland without Choa. They were never a group known for their dancing either so they're in an awkward position now.

3. [+408, -273] They flopped hard with a weird song sans Choa and now they have no chance of recovering with that feminism scandal..

4. [+136, -43] Choa's absence is too big...

5. [+77, -14] Their lyrics were so cheesy ㅡㅡ bingle bangle, shake your butt ㅡㅡ are you chodings?

6. [+51, -10] Let's not do another comeback... I was listening to their live and I had to do a double take as to whether they were actually singers;;

7. [+32, -6] They had no chance of doing well without their main vocal

8. [+56, -34] Look at all the anti-feminist men calling them flops ㅋㅋ They're still at the top of the charts on Bugs, Genie, Naver, and Melon, how are they flopping? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+30, -11] They're pretty and their song was fine

10. [+17, -2] Choa's absence was sorely felt ㅋㅋ they purposely had a member in short blonde hair but the song still sounded bland due to the vocal talent difference

11. [+15, -3] They're running away now that Black Pink is out ㅋ They don't have Choa, all of Seolhyun's male fans left her... they're going to be stuck like Rainbow. Even SISTAR disbanded after 7 years with all their vocal talent, how does AOA expect to survive longer than that? Seolhyunie should just go get acting lessons before she gets too old.

12. [+11, -1] Their song honestly sucked... their dance too; what was with "shake your butt" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I was horrified seeing that. Their title track was just unshiedable even though I've been a fan for a while ㅋㅋ..

13. [+10, -2] I had to change the channel because I couldn't bear to listen to their live on a music show ㅠㅠ they need more practice ㅠㅠ

14. [+10, -2] Feels like another flop... the song sucked... Choa's absence is too big

1. [+423, -16] Westerners age so hard once they hit their twenties... Bieber seriously looks like your town ajusshi, his girlfriend looks like an ajumma too...

2. [+209, -7] They look alike. I have a feeling he's going to go back to Selena Gomez after her ㅋㅋ they were so fresh when they first started dating.. Bieber was a cutie back when he was singing 'Baby' but now.. ㅠㅠ

3. [+12, -6] What are these two men doing

4. [+12, -8] I thought she was a man~~~

5. [+11, -4] He looks homeless, and the woman next to him looks like she's in her thirties

6. [+6, -2] First time seeing a white girl so ugly

7. [+5, -3] Why are his standards so low ㅋㅋㅋㅋ she's a total horseface

8. [+5, -4] How is Bieber prettier than his girlfriend;;;

9. [+4, -2] Bieber-ya, you can do better ㅠㅠ

10. [+4, -1] It looks like someone pulled that woman's facial features from the middle down

'Produce 48' trainee Kwon Eunbi is an Irene lookalike?

Source: Segye Ilbo via Nate

1. [+632, -62] Whatever the case, the Korean trainees are prettier and more talented than the Japanese kids

2. [+456, -19] Can't believe a '95er is 24 years old now... I feel so old

3. [+286, -17] Korean kids look so much more modern than the Japanese kids ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+20, -24] She does have an Irene feel to her but she looks prettier in video. Please vote for Woollim's Kwon Eunbi.

5. [+16, -26] I personally think she's prettier than Irene

6. [+15, -5] I knew people would start saying this. She's like the Walmart version of Irene.

7. [+13, -0] She doesn't look like Irene from the front..

8. [+10, -1] Kwon Eunbi has great leadership skills, is pretty, and a good dancer too, but she's not an Irene lookalike. She looks closer to Kim Ok Bin? I never thought of Irene while watching her.

9. [+9, -0] I actually thought she looked like Shiyeon from the first season

10. [+8, -4] She's pretty... but doesn't actually look like Irene. She's pretty in an exotic way... can't remember who she looks like but yeah, she's cute.


Japanese youth are enjoying the 'third Hallyu wave'

Article: "Japanese youth is completely in love with the new Hallyu wave"... Japanese media spotlights the third Hallyu wave

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

1. [+745, -29] After seeing Korean idol groups like Black Pink, Soshi, KARA, and TVXQ, you can tell that Japanese idol groups like AKB are nothing but school talent shows... ㅋㅋㅋㅋ J-Pop used to dominate back in the early 2000s ㅋㅋ now K-Pop is just better

2. [+732, -20] From my own personal experience, Shinokubo in Tokyo is already filled with junior and high school students who love K-Pop and there are a ton of K-Pop ads around Shibuya. It is indeed hot in Japan right now. I've actually found out more about Korean idols while living in Tokyo than when I was in Korea...

3. [+39, -5] I was surprised in Japan when I saw stores selling BTS and Twice badges and I was wondering who would ever buy this stuff until I saw a group of high school kids taking their time picking out which ones they wanted ㅋㅋ

4. [+35, -1] Japanese idols are completely behind in skill, you could tell by their Mnet auditions. Their main job is to show happiness and aegyo so they're behind professionally when it comes to dancing and singing. They seem to be wanting a piece of the K-Pop pie but for idols who have been working for 7- years, their skills are barely up to par with our Korean minors who are still trainees...

5. [+31, -4] Hallyu isn't just in Japan right now, it's worldwide. The Japanese probably think it's a minority of the Japanese who are into K-Pop but it's not, tsk tsk.

6. [+27, -5] Just until 15 years ago, Japanese idols like Johnny's were explosive in popularity. Taki, Yappi, Kinki Kids, SMAP, etc. They never promoted in Korea but they already had fanclubs here and everything. Then Korean idols started growing at a super fast rate with manhwa-like visuals, tall heights, amazing bodies, and multi-talented in singing and acting... It's going to be hard for Japanese idols to ever catch back up.

7. [+24, -3] There really is a stark difference in skill after seeing 'Produce 48'... Maybe it's a difference in culture but their style of idols would not work at all in Korea.

8. [+16, -2] Hard to feel happy over the Japanese acknowledging Hallyu because they have a history of just taking what they like and claiming it as theirs

9. [+15, -3] Japanese idols need to work on their singing style if anything...

10. [+12, -2] 'Produce 48' alone is enough proof why Hallyu is more popular
