Sexy concepts are dominating K-Pop




Article: [SS Issue] Girliness has disappeared from the music industry, a sexy competition between the female singers

Source: Sports Seoul via Nate

Editorial type article dissecting the change in style from cute to sexy among girl groups/female artists and how sexy concepts are dominating the market.

1. [+196, -14] Personally, I don't watch these music videos and think wow!! It's amazing!! I just feel upset and sorry for them. I do think it's nice of them to pave a new path and go for a style that others aren't comfortable with but you can't deny that all of this is also contributing to a growth in sexual assaults. How must their parents and siblings feel watching them film stuff like this? It's upsetting that this is all just another ploy for money from all of these agencies... tsk

2. [+185, -25] We need to ban idols under the age of 20 from debuting...

3. [+156, -9] They're nothing but money making products of companies tsk tsk tsk

  3. I don't like sexy concept. But horny boys and fangirls who want to looks cool must be likes sexy concept. Changmin is my favorite and he's debuted under 20's.......... Idols means a person that you love to be ah I don't how to explain this but look at AKB, they are graduated old member.
    Tbh I don't think SJ and BEG can be called 'idol' they don't match it bc of their age. Kahi have the best decission when she withdrawing from AS.

    1. What does AKB have to do with this?
      Mariko is 26 and she's fabulous and still top member with over 1 mil followers on twitter. Most top members are over 20 and that's old compare to H!P groups with 13, 14 yrs old kids
      They don't graduate girls when they're old. It's just alot have hard time holding onto their popularity so they moved on but there're still alot that managed too. There are plenty of girls graduating at 14 too.
      Even if you think members should graduate, shit like that don't go well with kpop fans and there's no reason kpop groups should graduate members when there are few of them compare to jpop

      Anyway BEG shouldn't even be consider idols........

    1. Korea also believes rape is a result of a womans actions

    2. It's not just Korea. With this world still being male-dominated, there's a lot of victim-blaming going on in ALL societies. It's messed up.

  5. Looool those diapers, Diaper's Girls Day in their original form. Last one is the most disturbing fulfilling pedophilia minds at its finest, cheap and thrashier than most tbh.

    I vote for Secret's Poison as the tackiest and most attention seeking choreography. Keep your legs closed!

    Damn girl groups should really go back to their pure innocent cute forms, even SNSD is beginning to turn themselves sexy. I want my girls intact please.

  6. What music video is between Gain and Hyuna? O_O

  7. and to think that only a few years ago everyone was complaining about the lack of sexy concepts lol

  8. Can't stand sexy concepts. A lot of the time they're extremely unoriginal. Will never get people's obsession with this or "badass" concepts for that matter either. People love hating on "cutesy shit" but there's just as much exploitation with these if not more.

  9. "but you can't deny that all of this is also contributing to a growth in sexual assaults" .... An again the most stupid comment makes it to the top. I do agree that is kind of awkward their over sexuallized concepts, but that was just such an idiotic thing to say. Ignorance at its best.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Sorry but since when the sexy concept is news??? It was news in like 1997 with the first generation groups... Tge eternal bipolarity... If its not zexy its cute and if its not cute guess what?? Its sexy!!! There are a few groups that have a consistent image or concept like beg, block b , 2ne1...

  11. kpop is going back to the tacky days.

    ReplyDelete
  12. And yet when a girl group debuts you see international dumbasses with their stupid typical comment: "finally a girl group that doesn't do that cutesy shit"


    seriously they must live under a rock

  13. You see that is why I give Hyuna props. I spend all day watching videos on VEVO and it's one girl after another showing their butts and grinding and getting naked, but for some reason I could care less and no one seems to care either because they are getting no views. But yet Hyuna and Rihinna does it people pay attention. It's not just about being sexy, the sexy has to come with a certain je n'ai sais quoi and 99.99% of artists who do sexy don't have it.


    So they can sex it up all they want but it will make no difference if they don't have that special something that goes beyond just being sexy and make people want to know more about you.

    ReplyDelete
  14. and hyuna has that something? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah I think she has it. If I had a dollar for every comment telling us the 5 billion reason Niki Minaj, Justin Beiber, Britney Spears should not be superstars because they suck at one thing or another I would be a billionaire. And there they are making pay attention hate or love them. That is what seperate the OK ones from the ones with great potentials.


    I don't know what future holds for Hyuna, but I know that with the right tools that girl can go far. You may not agree with me, but that's my opinion. Madonna had more people lining up to call her a slut up bitch with no talent in the 80's than they were people lining up for food during the great depression, but yet she managed to become a super star. If I was Hyuna I would take every "she's a slut" comment as if an angel get their wings and she is one step closer getting on top.


    I will contribute. Hyuna you are a slut, now go get them tiger. Good luck!

  16. because in Korea, instead of blaming the raper, they blame thew viticm, because they say they ''provoked'' the man... it is a sick way of thiking some of they have. That is why a lot of females don't even talk/open about it, because they'll be blamed.

    ReplyDelete
  17. or just teach men how to be decent...

    ReplyDelete
  18. because 20+ years old girls in school uniforms and pig tails singing "OPPAAA~" wasn't tacky.

    ReplyDelete
  19. i suggest teaching men/ society in general to respect women would be a better idea. Society will not progress if women are always assigned with greater responsibility for preventing the assaults when men should be expected to control their behaviour and keep their hands to themselves first.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Let's take a step at a time.
    We live in a patriarchal world- women have always been 'inferior' to men or 'weak'- like they'll always be dependent on a man.

    Before men start to learn that women are not such things, we have to stand up for ourselves first because no one else will do it for us.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Both can be done at the same time; and i think wide-reaching (long term and short term) measures of working towards societal change should take priority over more micro, individual efforts which may reinforce the notion that females should be more responsible for the prevention of assaults. Learning self-defense is always good, but placing more emphasis on females to learn it because of the greater dangers imposed (often) by the other gender is unfair when the point is to create an environment where both genders can feel equally safe.

    1. Honey, or should I say Mister, there are double standards here, but this double standard is justified .
      Women's bodies have always been deemed as more sacred. In the first place , do male singers even perform in ther boxers eh?

  27. Not as tacky as being showing your vagina

  28. Finally this article came out. I was also noticing the booming sexy trend. And im glad to see more international fans are agreeing.
    To be honest, the Western music industry is already over-saturated with sexy concepts for the female. They function by the notion of "sex sells" , which sadly it does. Since horny fan boys are treating music as an avenue for porn. People are getting more desensitized to sexy concepts and I-fans brush it off as "they are grown women, let them do what they want"
    But in reality , selling sex isn't a choice by the singer, it's the company and sex selling is just a cheap marketing strategy to entice the male population. Seems like the world isn't selling pure music anymore. It's all about the marketing tactic.

  29. close minded...even though 'they shake their ass' and 'wearing skimpy outfits' nobody has the right to touch them or follow them...even if i dress up like a bitch,men have no right to follow me or even rape me,if they want...people like you say all the time that it's the victim's fault while there are women who didn't even wear sexy clothes,wasn't too young and all but a sick person still found them and attacked them...normal and intelligent people can control their instincts,we are humans not animals...
