The obsession with skin exposure


Article: Shorter than hot pants, the music industry is obsessed with skin exposure

Source: Sports Donga via Daum

1. [+703, -96] Really, what are the Communications Standards Commission people even doing to stop this? People seem to think that men enjoy things like this but no, it's extremely off putting to look at...

2. [+684, -23] The spring season is filled with cherry blossom (butkot) festivals while the music industry is filled with a stripping (butko) festival

3. [+471, -19] What happened to all the spring season songs... everyone's just going all in with the sexy concepts. Normally around this time of the year, we got songs fit more to the weather.

4. [+336, -25] As a guy, it really disgusts me seeing them like this. Every line's been crossed and it's just boring to watch now.

5. [+287, -7] Surprising the viewers one panty at a time

6. [+267, -8] A line's been way crossed lately. It wouldn't be a stretch to call them promoters of the sex industry.

7. [+168, -16] These prostitutes calling themselves singers should just put on a strip show on stage.. Might as well with the way they're dressing... And you wonder why there are so many sexual crimes within the industry. The idol b*tches are just asking for it by wearing clothes like that. "Come eat me alive~"

8. [+146, -7] What do you expect from kids who are basically selling their bodies? They do whatever their agency tells them to, whatever their choreographer tells them to, whatever their composer tells them to.. And they still call themselves singers? It'd be easier to just go out to bars and sell your bodies.

9. [+127, -2] I'm calling the next concept to be stripped down naked with only body painting... You heard it here first.

10. [+120, -1] Getting attention through gimmicks like this only works momentarily... Having a trashy song can never help that attention transition into longevity.

  4. sorry to say.. to be honest, they look more than a slut/whore.. this is why most non-kpoppers hate kpop.. bcoz of this so much skin exposure.. =_="

    ReplyDelete
  5. Instead of creating a buzz over skin exposure and other body gimmicks, Idols should wow us with their singing abilities

    ReplyDelete
  6. I think Korean men just have a problem with women showing skin because they expect them to live up to their standards of purity.

    While I do think there's a fine line between being sexy and trashy, I rarely think that line is ever crossed in Kpop. People, especially netizens just like to get worked up for nothing.


    The criticism would be acceptable, if some of it wasn't so degrading referring to them as prostitutes, sluts, etc. I don't like slut-shaming.

    ReplyDelete
  7. That netizen sounds just like those assholes who say girl's deserve to get raped because of what they're wearing.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Exactly what I was thinking. >_>.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Who's the group in the second picture?

    ReplyDelete
  10. not here for the massive slutshaming but it's clear that a lot of groups that never used to do sexy are bandwagoning onto the sexy concept for their comebacks this year, ever since Girl's Day finally caught a break after switching from cute to sexy.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Why is it only the females being targeted? Males expose their skin just as much. Tsk tsk.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I don't see anything wrong with skin exposure. As long as they are not completely naked, I don't care.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Sistar19 wore loose, elbow length sleeved shirts and jeans for their last promo and they still got criticized for it even after Starship listened to earlier comments and had new outfits made. There's just no pleasing everybody.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Who cares what guys think about a woman's body. Guys are so entitled get over yourselves.

  15. [+336, -25] As a guy, it really disgusts me seeing them like this.

    WOAH WOAH WOAH, this person is out of line especially with that last comment.

  18. If anything, non kpoppers love kpop bc of the skin exposure. People who are not into Kpop enjoyed Hyuna's bubble pop MV for a reason

  19. ROFL "2. [+684, -23] The spring season is filled with cherry blossom

    No.. Just because someone wears something does not mean they're asking for anything. That does not justify sexual crimes being committed.

  20. people love to concern themselves with what women are showing but a million boy bands can actually be half-naked and it's not even worthy of an article where people are crying about the future generation. What will happen to our children's children because they saw 2PM's nipples??????? Or worse, a bunch of grown women's thighs omg ;;;;

    ReplyDelete
  21. i really doubt this is why non kpop fans hate kpop LOL i think it's more cause of the immature fans that go around bragging

    ReplyDelete
  22. Men have been ripping their shirts off and selling their bodies in kpop since like 2000. Every successful male act has done it...and they're called artists, world stars because of it..but women aren't strutting around in hanboks and now the music industry is over? LMFAO. The double standard makes me sick. CL and Deal Shabet don't even look inappropriate in the slightest in that pic. They look like sexy confident women and these dickheads can't handle it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Will I guess some netizens will be SUPER surprised when they come to California...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Guys can also hate that btw!

    ReplyDelete
  25. womans, you can't be confident about your body or show your sexy curves in summer clothes
    DON'T YOU KNOW YOU'RE ASKING TO BE RAPED?????

  26. Non kpoppers hate kpop because of skin exposure? Lol as if

  27. I've seen worse. Kpop idols don't even expose that much skin compared to international artists.

  30. i thought people were happy when they wore jeans :o

    ReplyDelete
  31. And the rape comment about skin exposure is just a NO NO. What an a**hole. Just because someone is exposing their skin doesn't neccssary mean they're asking to be rape...NO ONE ASKS TO BE RAPE!

    ReplyDelete
  32. It is sexy when Oppar strips, huh?
    Double standards smh

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wonder how old the people commenting are because I remember seeing a Jewellery song from 2011 where they were wearking bikinis and some really short shorties in live performances. I think k-pop regressed for a while. Obviously, the skin exposure is to win fans and whether they like or not it works

    ReplyDelete
  34. dont they make fun of 2pm for doing that though?

    ReplyDelete
  35. People, this isn't /borderline/ slut shaming, this IS slut shaming. Netizens have incredibly misogynistic views, this isn't at all surprising, though it doesn't make it any less disgusting. The double standards are phenomenal.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh lord, and it's not like them regular female Korean citizens don't wear them short shorts /rolls eyes/

    ReplyDelete
  37. yeah 2pm and some other male idols get shit for it, but still not as much as female idols do

    Whatever a woman wears does not justify Sexual Assault or crimes. Honestly I wanna slap this person in the back of his head, such a stupid comment. Besides it's their company and management theme that chooses the concept not them, do you think they also like to parade themselves with that revealing clothing...

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yes, but they still don't call them prostitutes/sluts. These comments are painful to read!

    Seriously???? No that would be like saying if you forget to lock your front door your inviting a robber to come and steal all your stuff

    ReplyDelete
  46. don't think so, non-kpoppers number 1 reason is that they don't understand the language so they find it pointless.

  47. Exactly...looks like he left the front door of his brain opened cause he was obviously robbed of his intelligence all ready.

  48. Agree with you, but let's see the other part of the world , Beyonce is talented but shows a lot of skin!!

    it seems to be a good concept...lets see if someones gonna try this in future

    ReplyDelete
  54. Other than comment #7 that was rationalizing motivations for sex crimes as to what a woman wears, I agree with the general negative attitude of the Korean public towards sexually provocative fashion in their entertainment industry. I think it is indecent (keep your naked bodies in your private homes please, not in public and media where kids can see it, be influenced, and imitate it) and it also demonstrates a lack of self-respect because why else are these women forced to show off so much of their bodies if not to flaunt sex appeal?

    I think when it comes to dressing scantily clad the Korean public's pressure against their entertainment industry for it is a lot more effective and beneficial than say, the American industry where there's so much leniency and it seems like everyone's okay with the way women are portrayed (showing off cleavage, legs, back, abs, etc. as if making a "statement" about free choice in fashion and sexuality but really just selling their bodies).

    ReplyDelete
  55. Sexy concept is boring for me now..

    In 2nd pic --> looks trashy..

    ReplyDelete
  56. The idol b*tches are just asking for it by wearing clothes like that.

    Regardless of whether or not a woman chooses to expose whatever part of her body, she's never asking for it. Ever.

    ReplyDelete
  57. These netizens need to grow the fuck up and get over it, I'm tired of their constant slut shaming. There's nothing wrong with a woman who is confident in her own body and wants to show off some skin.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I wouldn't be surprised if this happens any time soon tbh ...

    ReplyDelete
  59. That teaser picture under CL is so sexy though!
    Probably one of my favor teaser pictures ever

    ReplyDelete
  60. What's so wrong about that? It's not like you are obligated to see. No one is forcing you. When girls wear anything short they are called slut and get hated on, but when boys strip on the stage everybody loves!!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Wtf they act like they are wearing thongs on stage! And saying you deserve to be raped because you show skin?! That person is seriously crazy.

    P.s I wish my legs looked as good as dal.s or sistar in a pair of shorts-___-

    ReplyDelete
  62. Grow up, get over it. If you don't want to see it I suggest you avoid it and don't say they can't because that's bullshit.

    While I don't like too much skin exposure as well, be it female or male idols, this comment is just disgusting. One can run around wearing anything they want, and that will never give others the right to harass them. smh.

  66. I am more upset at the lack of Summer anthem songs this year. More songs are giving off the sexy vibe than the fun vibe.

    ReplyDelete
  67. "Men have been ripping their shirts off and selling their bodies in kpop since like 2000."


    Wasn't there a male idol who had a photo with his naked butt showing?



    Or was it fake? Lol don't remember.

    ReplyDelete
  68. oh shut the hell up netizens

    ReplyDelete
  69. Ummmm. I'm from America but this is nothing to me. They're showing legs I mean things change and sometimes for the worse it's an oh well type of thing.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Personally, I think they're both showing just the right amount of skin. Since their legs are exposed, the rest of their bodies are covered. Technically, that's the way to do it. And I don't doubt that some men really do get tired of seeing the sexy concepts actually. A friend of mine was recently complaining to me about how her boyfriend told her to stop walking around their condo naked in front of him, because he was getting too used to seeing her that way and he wanted to still see her body as something he had to look forward to. Not something that was readily available. So, I can actually believe that.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh goodness, the image of girl groups doing some of their songs in hanbok is so funny!


    *I don't mean that in an offensive way btw. Imagine GG doing IGAB in hanbok

    ReplyDelete
  72. It was real. It's from Shinhwa's Wild photo book

    ReplyDelete
  73. it was junjin, but it WAS indeed for a half-nude photobook so...

    ReplyDelete
  74. Oh yeah. Thanks.


    Did it get a lot of controversy? I wasn't around that time, but I've seen the pic lol

    ReplyDelete
  77. "just asking for it"

    That sentence just pisses me off so much. ANYONE can be fucking RAPED.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I agree with this a bit. I guess you could look at the concept of real old fashioned burlesque shows. Men went wild seeing a glimpses of thigh or shoulder because it kept the rest of the female body a mystery

    actually They can hunt down this USER ..because calling woman as prostitute is a big crime..

    like what happen to Kim Gura who insulted Korean woman by calling then "prostitutes"

    ReplyDelete
  80. they could dead..

    ReplyDelete
  81. How can one ask for rape? If they were asking for it it wouldn't be rape assholes.

    ReplyDelete
  82. awkward moment when half of the knetz complaining about the women probably have a photobook or poster with shirtless oppa.

    ReplyDelete
  83. WTF is Siwon wearing.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I think it has to do more with the styling than the skin exposure itself

    just look at the difference in CL and Dal Shabet's pictures, CL looks like she's about to beat the hell out of someone and Dal Shabet look cute and sexy waiting for you to be drunk enough to steal your wallet/car keys

    ReplyDelete
  85. Yeah, that's true. I think a lot of girls find it empowering, but they don't realize that keeping it covered and a secret is just as much if not more so empowering than showing it all.

    ReplyDelete

  90. do they wear panties ?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Did it get any controversy? The answer to this question tells how much double standards go on esp when it comes between Korean female idols & male idols.

    ReplyDelete
  92. briefs that comes with an attached sock. it's quite handy sometimes, if you know what i mean

    ReplyDelete
  93. no faggot they wear potatos

    ReplyDelete
  94. Not only do they expose their skin, they do all these hip-thrusting-floor-humping dance routines. Not that I'm complaining, lol, but those dances are much worse than anything any female idol has done and I hate double standards.

    ReplyDelete
  95. East Asian culture are really conservative... So over exposing skin can make some controversy. But netizen's comments are too much

    ReplyDelete
  96. Even if someone was a good singer they wouldn't care if they didn't have an interesting gimmick. As great of singer IU is people don't like her till she lost a bunch of weight and started doing cute sings and BEG didn't get popular till after they're surgeries and Abracadabra.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Just like I don't mind seeing good looking men half naked, I don't think men get tired of some skin exposure either (it's not like the girls are naked, it's just legs)

  100. Have you ever seen a boy group performing just in boxers or underwear ? No.

    ReplyDelete
  101. ”Every successful male act has done it...and they're called artists, world stars because of it…” Could you give examples of male idols who have done it and are recognized as artists for by showing skin, please? From what I understand from your comment: male idols are not respected by the music, even if they are involved in the creative process, but stripping? It's just a question. Remember idols (male or female) are hardly considered artists. Sorry my broken English.

    ReplyDelete
  102. This trend will stop when the public stops paying attention to such concepts.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Have girls groups done this? If so, links please ;)

  109. I always wonder how within their culture they go back to their families and what happens after idol culture?
    Cause the amount of emphasis put on being an ideally perfect lady in korean culture is so far from idol life that it kinda makes me wonder what the people around them think or how they feel regarding the difference.

  122. I don't know if it made controversy or not. But I did some google-ing, so here what i've got. back to 2001 when Shinhwa released new album (Hey! Come On) but Andy didn't join them. rumor said SM didn't allow Andy to back to Shinhwa. and SM asked Shinhwa to do this photoshoot as one of requirements to bring Andy back. well, but other said Andy just want to concentrate with his study in US. nobody knows.

    Pop singers, especially idols, just do what their management tells them, so it's disgusting to say these girls deserve to be sexually assaulted just for doing sexy concepts that their agency and management is making them do

It's not like they are doing it in a trashy manner either.

    All thanks to sistar who found fame with showing skin and sexy concepts, butt waving and stuff. Now, rookie or lesser known groups are following suit in hopes to find their place in the industry.

  142. Sexy don't mean you have to wear panties to perform ! It's really disgusting with me !

  143. But Bora is hot and sexy, the rest can just perform with paper bags over their heads which is the wish of most Korean men =)

  146. If Korean netizens are soooo sick of skin exposure, then maybe they should stop criticizing female idols' for their looks when they've put on some weight or when they're not the prettiest girls they've ever seen, til then, they shouldn't complain about idols showing off their bodies that they've worked hard to achieve.

    Honey thighs, s-lines and bagel girls.. Netizens are obsessed with talking about it as much as they despise it. Idols can't just get a break, It's always a lose-lose situation.

  152. Girl idol wears baggy covering clother > Looks homeless and looks stupid, what the hell is she wearing.

    Girl idol shows skin > What a whore, she is a prostitute calling herself a singer.

    ..Neither way wins.

    Lol, no. Non-kpoppers love the skin exposure. They have legit, reasonable answers for why they don't like kpop though.

    Kpop IS gimmicky. If you don't like it, listen to the real artists of Korea: Gummy, Ivy, Seo In Young, Cho Young Pil, Seo In Guk, etc.

  155. Can anyone tell me who the group are?

    Some group should just bring back the fairy concept... theyll stand out more in a sea full of sexy concepts.

  158. And here is where I am constantly disgusted with KNetizens. So what? Its their bodies, their choices. (Management aside.) If they got it, they can do whatever they want. And if it triggers a negative response, change the channel, turn off the laptop/tablet/cellphone/etc and do something else.


    Ugh. I /hate/ it whenever I read articles like this - KNetz always calling them prostitutes or whores or sluts. Grr.

  159. How about descent clothing? Its not a black and white situation.

  160. Its not just Korean men, its women too. This isn't isolated to one gender at all. People tend to think along the lines of, "I will judge you if you express your sexuality in a way I find inappropriate."

  163. "1. [+703, -96] Really, what are the Communications Standards Commission people even doing to stop this? People seem to think that men enjoy things like this but no, it's extremely off putting to look at..."


    And? Who says they're doing it for men? They can do whatever they'd like with their bodies, and dress as they like, as long as it's not infringing on any preset rules the broadcast companies have up.

    ReplyDelete
  164. "Iffy" - Meaning that things are close to a true balance, but it could go either way depending on what happens.

  165. Look these girls just following what they was ordered to do remember After School they do the pole dance since the CEO told them to do, so is not all of their fault

    ReplyDelete
  166. i think the obsession is on the knetizen's part! while some outfits are questionable, i personally simply view it as a fashion getup. i don't think, oooh skin~! the problem is their minds. clearly it's a problem if they think dressing freely means you can rape me.

    I honestly can say that I have never encountered so much sexism until I joined the kpop fandom.


    a boy takes his shirt off on stage = omg oppar so hot!!1!


    a girl wears shorts = slut. no talent. only selling sex.


    a boy lipsyncs on stage = oppar is focusing on dancing. he's still talented and sexy!


    a girl lipsyncs = no talent. cant even sing. she shouldn't be an idol.


    a boy gets plastic surgery = it's okay. it was his personal choice. he's still talented. love him for who he is not what he looks like.


    a girl gets plastic surgery = plastic whore. fake bitch. looks like a monster.


    smh and I can keep going with examples. It's honestly sad.

    The person who comment this and the people who upvoted this are simply jealous. Why? Too much hypocrisy. He/She that calling them prostitutes/sluts are no way to deserve some respect. BTW, it's not as if it's the girl choice, it maybe their Coordinators/Stylist Staff/CEO that decides for them to wear it just like what I saw in 'Nine Muses' documentary before. Their CEO asking the fashion designer of their company to make the girls skirt shorter that what is already...

  171. "a boy lipsyncs on stage = oppar is focusing on dancing. he's

    still talented and sexy!"

    very true

    "a boy takes his shirt off on stage = omg oppar so hot!!"
    a girl wears shorts = slut. no talent. only selling sex.


    if a girl idol is sexy they assume she is talentless

    a boy gets plastic surgery = it's okay. it was his personal choice. he's still talented. love him for who he is not what he looks like.

    and not only that but most fangirls are so blinded by their obsession that they even denied it.....they say they haven't done anything to their faces it's just make up or they don't look different it was just baby fat that's why they now have a perfect V line.

  172. looking back at 2NE1 when they are just starting, who would have thought CL of 2NE1 would be included with these so called prostitutes by those K-netizens? what happen to her?

    ReplyDelete
  173. but even if girl idols wants sexy concepts what's wrong with that? as long as it's tasteful I don't think it should be a problem.....I hate it when people make assumptions about girls groups that are sexy and saying that they have to be sexy to make up for their lack of talent....You can be sexy and still be talented.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Out of everyone in 2NE1 I knew she had it in her to dress like that. It's not a surprise but now that time has come that she is covering up less and I don't really know what to feel haha.

    Excuse me?? What about Super Junior's 'Mr. Simple' comeback - SiWon's teaser picture depicted him in nothing less than lime green boxers wearing only a pair of matching socks and trainers as well. There are countless other examples in popular idol groups alone, so yes, we have all seen male idols performing in just their underwear at some point or other.

  184. When oppar does it it's considered sexy, When unnie does it, it's considered being a slut.
