Celebrity siblings lose their novelty factor



Article: 'Benefit of a celebrity family' is now in the past, family networking has lost its perks

Source: TV Daily via Nate

Article talking about how before, it was rare to have siblings in the industry so it was a great way for siblings to get their name out there quick and easy when they first debuted (Krystal, Thunder).. but now, there are so many siblings that it doesn't really impact your debut since the novelty factor has worn off.

1. [+318, -6] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Boram's younger sister ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ A good example of an idol that didn't see the perks of having a celebrity sister but fell to the bottom before she even made her debut ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+233, -3] The rest of them probably aren't seeing any perks because their other sibling isn't that popular ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+210, -4] Isn't it obvious that it wouldn't matter if your celebrity sibling is a nobody or has a bunch of antis like T-ara? They have to be popular somewhat to get your name on the radar with netizens. 

4. [+24, -0] You have to have an A class sibling like Choi Jin Shil, Choi Jin Young or Um Jung Hwa and Um Tae Woong to use their name to promote your own, otherwise it's useless..

5. [+23, -0] The Boram siblings basically tainted their father's name

  1. Well it seems to help out Taewoon a little bit since people always refer to him as Zico's brother!!! :O!!! when he debuted first..

    ReplyDelete
  2. he debuted before Block B though and no one even remembers co-ed.

    ReplyDelete
  3. D-Business must be hella pissed now. They were trying to siphone off of T-ara's fame with Wooram and Boram but that mess backfired the second the scandal broke out.

    Lesson learned, I guess. It's not always to your advantage to have siblings in the industry AND try to purposefully exploit that relationship. It's gimmicky and obviously attention-seeking.

  4. I think idol siblings are so cute... especially towards each other.

    ReplyDelete
  5. lol yeah that's what i'm saying, taewoon debuted first. i'll clarify that if it didn't seem that that's what i meant. sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Yes and no, I suppose. People will undoubtedly compare their rap skills together and while both are much better than average, I think the general consensus is that Zico's better. As the older sibling, Taewoon will more often times than not be on the shorter end of the stick in those comparisons.

  7. Boram's younger sister is not relevant at all, both sisters are cheap bitches.

  8. Jessica and Krystal are plastic sluts with no talent. -.-

    1. -.- not really though. Maybe they are plastic ( almost all Korean females in general have something done before) but their singing talent is legit.

  9. yeah i feel a little bad cause most of his twitter followers and stuff have something block b related in their username like they only know him through zico/block b (((this is me though)))

  10. Thunder is so hot.. in other hand Dara is a useless whore.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I just love Dara and Thunder affection towards each other and yes The Boram siblings are total failed.

    ReplyDelete
  12. ah ok i get it now, no need to be sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  13. What I want is for interviewers to stop asking Thunder about Sandara. In every time, they just had to attach his name to her. The boy is already established and made a name for himself. Same goes to Krystal. I just felt bad for their stans, that must have been upset them a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  14. at least Boram sing, dance and act better than Sandara.

  16. I agree with you. I know Thunder and Sandara are close but please, the boy has some ego too :(

  17. Park siblings are overrated.

    ReplyDelete
  18. lol Not going to comment about Stardom obviously but yeah, it sucks that Taewoon had to take a backseat and watch his brother shine. But that's no one else's fault but CCM's. KKS gave up WAY too early after that Kangho scandal came out and with Co-Ed School being MIA for over two years, very few people recognize them or care about their whereabouts. Obviously CCM is still trying to salvage whatever's left of Co-Ed School but he took SO long to finally get them out there. Now it's like Taewoon's starting over. I hope he does well though!

  19. lol all of the replies on this comment has the same number downvotes. is there a -1 troll in here????

  24. 5. [+23, -0] The Boram siblings basically tainted their father's name

    Cries a little bit... Just because she doesn't contribute that much doesn't mean you can bad mouth her like that...

    ReplyDelete
  25. I feel bad for Wooram. She couldn't have debuted at a worse time. She even filmed some things before the controversy that when aired later made them both look bad. She is really gifted in songwriting and good at singing/dancing. I hope more people are able to look past the fact that Boram is her sister. You can't pick your family.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow what's with the hateful comments here :o I thought it would get better after nb's post?
    Anyway, hm, the last comment is not very nice D: I mean, we don't know the actual truth about the whole issue so k-netizens shouldn't speak about their family like this, it's disrespectful imo.
    And I don't think it's really a perk to have siblings in the industry, especially if you don't meet the public's expectations and all...?

    ReplyDelete
  27. family friends know Thunder used to have sex with Dara.

    ReplyDelete
  28. People just love to hate! #FlipsHair. Oh well, I still stand on what I say haha, they are cute! ^o^

  29. "Dara is forver Goddess"

    Goddess is Bom, Dara is just a useless whore.

    1. Omg, Gyuri is the goddess of Korea. Meanwhile Bom is the plastic surgery queen Sandara is talentless.

  33. Zico's bro is in co-ed, right.... I only recently found out about him T_T

    ReplyDelete
  34. They are. I sometimes wished I got siblings. Anyway, WTF is wrong with ppl here. I cant believe the amount of vote down your getting. Take a chill pill losers!

    ReplyDelete
  35. they seem like they're giving him a lot more room to shine seeing that their newest release was all rapping and was basically 90% him and 10% the other dude rapper (i don't know any of their names... i'm hoping i will learn through their reality shows.. if it gets subbed)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love Dara. She's my fave girl but the questions Thunder gets about her are way too much same goes for Krystal. It was cute at the beginning but later on it was just way too much

    ReplyDelete
  37. not only hateful but some comments are just pure disgusting

    ReplyDelete
  38. someone has been reading too many incest fanfics LOL

    ReplyDelete
  39. Zico, Krystal and Wooram all debuted after their older siblings yet are known to be more talented than them. (try to refute me if you can!)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Dara is pretty but her brother is nothing special... MBLAQ in general is nothing special.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Sungmin is the other rapper, I believe, and he's like 16 or something .__. Taewoon's definitely getting a lot of love from his company to be front and center of Speed as well as featuring on The Seeya's debut single.

    ReplyDelete
  42. youre gonna need better ammo than that. pretty sure that is arguable at most, no one trumps the other.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thunder's ego is tiny like his d1ck.

    ReplyDelete
  44. LMAO are you for real Dara fan??? I don't like Boram but the girl is waaaaay more talented than Dara.

    ReplyDelete
  45. and yours is tinier right?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Let's be honest. Neither are that talented. It's like comparing whether it's better to be drowned or buried alive. Either way, you still die.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Pretty much agree with these comments.


    Taewoon and Co-ed weren't doing anything at the time Zico debuted so Taewoon's "popularity" was pretty much nil. Zico was able to become popular because of his skills and I actually would be surprised if Taewoon got more attention because of it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Why did you get downed for this, I don't understand...

    ReplyDelete
  49. Girls don't have d1cks, maybe Dara and she loves to ride Thunder.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Err, yeah, I wonder if they're troll with multiple accounts or just a bunch of idiots... sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  51. and who are you to say that? Do you really know them? Are you even a fan of them?

    ReplyDelete
  52. because you're not a fan

    ReplyDelete
  53. hahaha your comment made my day.

  54. did you get this idea based from your own personal experience?

  58. allkpop is getting a bad rap here, My guess is that it's allkpop antis that are posing as these so-called allkpop trolls like this one hear. You've heard them lately saying now how NetizenBuzz is "ruined forever" because they think all the allkpop goers are migrating here, lol

  59. [+23, -0] The Boram siblings basically tainted their father's name
    ^
    I'm actually quite surprised at how badly they failed, considering their whole family are basically celebrities, and it's not even like their parents are entertainers who people have no idea who they are. In terms of SK citizens' ability to recognise someone by their faces as a judge of how well-known they are, their mother is probably more identifiable than the both of them combined together.

  64. THIS SITE IS GONNA BE SOON OVERRUN NY ALLKPOP TROLLS. WHAT A WASTE.

    ReplyDelete
  65. It also helps that both Soshi and 2ne1 blew up in 2009. And while their sucesses were still fresh in everyone's minds f(x) and Mblaq debuted in 2009 as well.



    On the other hand with Taewoon and Zico. Co-Ed was not popular at all. Block B debuted in 2011 and with their recent successes I think Taewoon is more known as Zico's brother than the other way around despite debuting before him.


    Boram and Wooram. Are just unlcuky. D-Unit had the pleasure of debuting right after T-ara's mega scandal which totally brought them from Korea's number 2 girl group to Korea most hated girl group. It was unfortunate that D-Unit had to be affiliated with T-ara bought some negative attention to them.


    And than Joo and Illhoon. The problem with that is Joo has been off the radar since January 2011 she does have her little stints at the JYP Nation Concerts but thats really. I was really shocked that they were siblings I just found like what 3 days ago. I actually watched all of BToB Diary and Btob B+ Diary as well and he never mentioned once. Illhoon is more known for his Kiyomi Player more than anything.



    Celebrity Siblings are still quite an asset if the timing is right and how popular celebrity sibling is, who they are and what is their image. Lets say Won Bin had a sister who decided to become a singer debuted I assure that would cause not only a media frenzy but a netizen frenzy as well. See Celebrity Siblings still has its perks.

  66. As long as a bunch of fangirls don't come here. I'm fine with it because fan girls make (EVERYTHING) unbearable.

  67. agree with you I think the timing was good with Fx SNSD as well as 2ne1 MBLAQ

  68. What are you an allkpop mod or something? just leave already! do you really think this is the only site where you will find people that dislike allkpop? Gtfo.

  71. Shame that Thunder and Wooram are more talented then their siblings. Thunder can dance, produce and write songs, Wooram can sing, dance, and compose. I don't know what Boram can do but I know that Dara can act well at least she used to.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Do YOU really know them? You're nothing more than just a fan.

    btw, obviously duffy's not a fan if he/she wrote "i think they are mediocre in everything."

  73. i don't care
    not a fan of either

  77. DAFUQ Blackjackasses, VIP's and YG stans are infecting this site more and more every passing day.

    Dara is tone deaf, mediocre dancer and singer at best and still people like you overrate her to death since she is your 2ne1 unnir.

  78. Not Jung sisters, only Krystal is the pretty, talented and hot one.

    I don't like nor hate jessica, neutral.

  79. I don't know much about Co-Ed's musical side but they say how can such talentless guy can be Zico's brother.

    Regardless it is hard to surpass Zico, he is the next big thing and everyone should watch about especially the rappers.

    ReplyDelete
  80. totally. i feel like thunder's expression always got dark when the interviewers mentioned dara, i mean, if it's during his debut days it's okay cause it brings more attention, but now everytime i see mblaq went to a variety show they still mentioned dara -__-"

  84. I used to love reading comments here before the AKP trolls decided to camp out here. NB should delete those troll comments or ban them if need be. I just want the old NB back.

    ReplyDelete
  85. It's lame that they were considered a novelty in the first place. Who cares if they are related? It has nothing to do with their talent.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I like D-UNIT and Wooram and it annoys me that because of being the sister of Boram and all the T-ARA issues people don't give her a chance

    ReplyDelete
  87. u do realise before NB got disquis or w/e the comment section was still equally fucked up right? there never really was and probably never will be a 'quiet' comment section. there were some commenters who said some intelligent stuff nd w/e but u seem to not acknowledge that netizenbuzz has kinda always had those trolls. although i would still prefer NB to allkkkpoop anyday haha

  88. how are they the 'shit' of korea when shitdonk exists wtf

  89. if anyone steps over the line NB can IP ban.

  90. This is true, not only siblings but young idols. Before, when you're young, people will get interest on you because you're young, cute etc. But now, it's just meh.
    Kpop is oversaturated.

  91. YES! Thank you for commenting on this. All the mature netizens are overshadowed by trolls who thinks standing up for their bias is a daily job.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I remember NB having trolls (especially whenever T-ara was mentioned) but other than that, but once the anon feature was no longer a thing with Disqus, the comment section seemed to improve. Now it's like we're back to that pre-Disqus era .___.

    ReplyDelete
  93. i was here since the begging just like you, but there was always "trolls" that would come and comment here.
    its the fanwar comments that might ruin it

    ReplyDelete
  94. I remember you :) After NB got Disqus, the trolls seemed to have died out but I guess with more exposure comes more trolls.

  95. Ilhoon looks a lot more like junhyung than his actual sister Joo !
