Has A Pink reached "nation's girl group" status yet?


Article: Four years into A Pink, the reason they're #0 as the 'national girl group'

Source:
Ilgan Sports via Naver

1. [+1,508, -82] You're going to need a hit track to hit national status like SES's I'm Your Girl, FinKL's Eternal Love, SNSD's Gee, Wonder Girl's Tell Me...

2. [+1,265, -53] I like A Pink but the title is overdoing it... the journalist is asking for antis

3. [+1,055, -63] Sorry but not at all... I asked my coworkers if they knew A Pink and it was only one young junior who did.. and she didn't even know their song. They might be popular with the younger generation but not nearly enough for the national title.

4. [+885, -49] #0? What does #0 even mean ㅡㅡ

5. [+823, -47] They need a huge daebak song for national status, which they don't have yet

6. [+257, -36] It hasn't even been that long since their comeback and their song's already about to drop out of the top 10.. far from national ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+233, -14] Media play like this does negative things to your image

8. [+231, -22] This article makes it sound like they're a group who has won a daesang ㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+190, -13] They're already talking about being a national girl group..... talk about feeding the trolls

10. [+178, -12] Funny... Cube does overdo it with the media play but this is going too far ㅋㅋ

  9. You Shouldn't Do ThatApril 10, 2014 at 2:52 AM

    Siwon was super attached to Hangeng so I also believe it's genuine. I also think this is just the first time in front of cameras and that they've remained friends for years. The Siwon-Hangeng-Heechul love triangle was a thing of beauty!

  14. well, DBSK, Suju, SS501 almost have the "same" situation, of course when see a really great thing like this, everyone want this to happend to their own Idol too. And it's not like every comment in this site are always follow the article thought, as long as it's just one or two comment (get along with those reply) then I think it's still okay, share the happinness with other <3

  17. That one was photoshopped tho. An ELF photoshopped it before this video came out of internet

    ReplyDelete
  18. oh, since you're a Korean, I just want to ask something that i really really curious about : Do Suju really get alot of hate (like from the entire country but their fans) at Korea? Everyone tell me that it's true but I just want to confirm it cuz they're not Korean anyway T__T

    ReplyDelete
  19. I totally agree! I am so happy for the hottests (well no the ones that are going all psycho but yeah..), gosh look how happy khun looks!


    Ffs, can someone please just bless B2ST with a girl? Those boys look so lonely lately, it's hurting my poor little fan girl heart.

    ReplyDelete
  20. ain't gonna happen. we have to accept that was an ugly divorce and move on </3 what breaks my heart the most is the fact that the strong relationship junsu and yunho had is probably the one that's more fractured.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Because of the choreo amd the mood of the song I guess. Honestly I am not a fan of the choreo for Shadow. There is nothing particularly special about it.

  22. i think it's pimples.. /=

  23. 8. [+12, -42] As a fan, let me say one thing. It's good that you're dating but if you care about your fans at all, don't make it obvious/public.


    As a fan, we should have known the difference between us as a fan and tiffany as her girlfriend . c'mon . this is a big difference . his love for his fans and his love for his girlsfriend is completely different . open your eyes girls ! don't live in your imaginary world . as long as his girl is deserved , why not? support him . you have to be proud to have a male-idol whos as romantic as character in a drama .

  26. b-b-b-ut why should m promote in korea? i'll never understand the logic behind that xD anyways, they'd have promoted swing in china a little bit longer but since hyukmin's mandarin is still awkward they can't do much BUT i miss them in varieties and i'll take whatever they give me as long as it's the whole m gang >c siwon included! (andhangeng?okayno/gets bricked. anyways, jackie chan is awesome. not because of the meeting but because he's awesome)

  27. Some fans need to get over them self and let their idols do what they want n date who ever they want. Why would he need to considerate his fans? He's a human being for once

  32. I wish you the best!!!!

  33. I know that was very sweet of him, but still, make it public like that is torturing some fans, I know there are a lot of fans that try to take it happily but still, it hurts. I wish nichkhun would consider his fans' feeling more.

  34. "hangeng oppa, it's ok to hate sm but please don't hate suju oppa..."
    a fangirl cries.

  35. sorry??
    they always meet up when they can ..
    even han came to seoul in his bday and celebrate with heechul ..
    the problems with the company not the members!!

    they though they are like TVXQ
    I'm sorry for TVXQ and I still support them
    but it's not the same in SJ !!
    they are BEST friends even in other places..
    they can't stop hating people, these bad comments make me hate koreans!!

  36. Worse, Zico got his mom's face tattooed on his torso! How awkward would it be for his gf when they're 'doing it' lol!

  37. 7. [+13, -11] Nichkhun-ah... It's good to be public with your dating stuff but did you consider the feelings of your fans? Realize that your fans are important too! Without your fans, you are nothing but a handsome foreigner.





    lolss.. i think his fans are mature enough to Understand him... and we like it or not we do not live in a fairy tale and we will never have them as our love ....So its better to let them date .. cause they are human too

    ReplyDelete
  38. wanna bet that he will become like really an ideal guy even for non kpop fans in korea now. Few tv stations asked ppl on street what they think about Khunfany and everyone had nice comments about them. I remember he once tweeted how one day he will point toward his girl and tell everyone she is his girl. Seems like he really is in love and ideal guy.

    ReplyDelete
  39. yes, it maybe will hurts some "fans"..but what can he do?
    he can't pleased everyone..
    just don't forget that, being an idol is just his job...
    his private life is something that we shouldn't surpass..
    this will happen sooner or later..................
    As Shinhwa oppar always said "We r not responsible for ur life".
    I think he only make this public once, just to unofficially confirmed it by his own mouth?

    To some fans,
    these r like only 5 words? how hurt can u get??...lol
    hang in there.. reality does bites. XD

    ReplyDelete
  40. .....damn. i'm trying to be really understanding but why girl why??? i actually have a SJ tattoo myself & even then i'm just staring at these thinking she went too far. my tattoo is tiny, on my left index finger & it's pretty indirect that even fellow ELFs would have to stop for half a second to get it. i don't regret it & i rly hope she doesn't but idk man, i feel like she's gonna wake up one day & be like, da fuck did i do?

    he consider the feeling of the fans who want him to be happy, despite who he'll end up with. they are his fans too. tyvm. smh knetz for always considering idols shouldn't live a normal life.

    ReplyDelete
  44. He should consider fans's feeling but the fans already knew abt this and he's at the age for dating.. I don't mind if suju did this too. Maybe a lil sad at first but hey, they r human too

  45. 2008 wasn't DBSK's peak year. That was not the year thye achieved the most success. That year was 2005/2006 with Rising Sun. That was when their hype was the best. Everyone's fanbases increase over time, but DBSK's music was the most relevant in those 2 years. Their best chartings were in their earlier years.


    Also, Exo's voices are very much clear above the background music. but once again, people's presumptions cloud their judgement. People just find reasons to discredit how well Exo is doing, because they can't believe that Exo can actually sing. I am being honest here, not biased. But I have seen how people always foist their preconceptions onto Exo and accuse them of lipsyncing even when they OBVIOUSLY are not, just because they didn't expect them to have good live vocals and they don't want to eat their words. I have seen people watch MR removeds of Exo and say they are lipsyncing or call it prerecorded although their voices are clear as day. Mr removeds remove all backing sound. They can't record the pre recorded track separately from the music. People know this, but they don't want to eat their words. Every single kpop group has backing vocals, and Exo's is no louder and Exo's voices are no more unclear.


    Also, If you really were an old Cassie,you'd know that.DBSK's lives back then were not good, and they lipsynced a lot during Rising Sun era and got tons of hate. If you don't know that, then you are obviously not telling the truth. You are not an old Cassie.

  46. cool
    i didn't ask tho

    ReplyDelete
  47. 2008 was when they released Mirotic and Purple Line and hit it big in both Korea and Japan hence their peak. Any cassie knows that Mirotic and Purple Line were the legendary songs of TVXQ. Both songs did very well on the chart and sales and if those did not define their 'peak' I don't know what does.

    I really dont want to cross the line but since you are saying that I'm a liar I guess it's okay to call you a deluded exotic. Yes EXO can sing but to say their live is on par with Beast was a bit too much, as mentioned in the comment I replied to. Exo sing as well as rookies do. Nothing special, nothing exceptional. If you think they are not rookies, then there's the problem. They sing like a rookie group.

    DBSK did lipsync back then but to say they did that because their live isn't good is not right. Here. I hope these shut you up. There are more vids which are better than these but I bet you do own a computer and internet so go on and search if you want.

    http://youtu.be/kA7HpRNwYQY
    http://youtu.be/2PvVMxZ1Nwo

    Point to note - DBSK did better than EXO as rookies when it comes to singing live. I don't hate EXO but deluded fan like you need to be brought back into reality. I really don't want to compare but when someone who says DBSK is bad at live singing praised EXO's live I couldn't help but flip at the level of their delusional fangirling.

  48. I liked "I'm Sorry" last year better. I couldn't stop playing that song, but "Shadow" was a big letdown after "Beautiful Night." They're good at mellow and party tracks, and I think it's good to experiment, but it's also best to stick with what you know is the best for the group in general. I hope they do something bigger and better than "Beautiful Night" this May.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I've seen a lot of comments saying shit like "showtime = exo, exo = showtime, the creators should've renamed it for another group blahblah", of course reasonable fans wouldn't care, but there're a lot of immature ones.

    ReplyDelete
  50. well, Growl sold better digitally than Shadow...ans also EXO slayed Beat on the physical sales...
    but yeah I think it's rude to say "EXO detroned Beast"

    ReplyDelete
  51. Well there's also a lot of comments saying Beast is way more talented than EXO and look at that shady comment from k-net 5, both fandoms are the same..

  52. OMG really? You're so lucky. :) Did you even get to take a picture with kid from the movie? Cause he is so Perfect!!

  53. "If not then gtfo."


    rofl try harder.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh, so I'm butthurt for telling you to gtfo? I would have said the same thing to you even if this wasn't about BEAST. You were spouting nonsense like a dumbass. If you didn't want "butthurt" people like me to reply to you then at least be able to back up what you said. If evidence is present, no one would have anything to say against you. Isn't that common sense though? If you wouldn't do something like this in real life, don't do it online. You'd get your ass beat in real life if you accused someone of stealing from you without any evidence. I'm not sure how old you are but you don't seem very bright so I think it'd be better if you spend more time in school and less time going on sites like this.

  55. Only growl.

  56. LOL your desperate attempt at a comeback makes me laugh. Anyway, I'm allergic to brainless twits so, for the love of God, stop replying to me. Goodbye.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Asking for a summary of your rant is hardly a comeback. Meanwhile all you seem to be able to do is attempt to insult me, which just makes you look dumb. Please learn a thing or two before commenting back to me. =)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Excuse me, I don't know where you live but "too long, didn't read" is not something you should say when you want to ask for a summary of what someone said. If you have the time to make an attempt to reply to me, you have the time to read a paragraph and a half. It's not that difficult and shouldn't take you more than two minutes, unless you're in grade school. Also, what's wrong with calling someone who acts like an idiot an idiot? You claimed something without proof and called me butthurt when I asked you for evidence you can't provide. Then, I made an attempt to explain to you why you're wrong but you replied with "too long, didn't read." You deliberately ignored everything I said in the last three posts and now, you're expecting me to take you seriously?

    ReplyDelete
  59. You are a bad judge then because I am a guy and I enjoy Exo's music but I would not consider myself a fan. The only members where I can even put a name to a face are Kai, Chen, and D.O. Such a huge exotic mirite?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wow, are you saying it's possible for someone to defend a group, compliment them and like their music without actually being a fan? Is that brand new information or what? Amazing!! :D


    Anyway, it doesn't seem like you caught on to what I said before since you're calling me a "bad judge" but dude, I was just using the same flawless logic you used earlier when you were talking about how that one commenter has to be a BEAST fan just because they complimented on them. If you're going to label someone as a fan just because of a mere compliment then what makes you, someone who goes around defending EXO and shitting on others, not a fan exactly? Can you elaborate on that logic of yours? Is it something that apply to everyone else except yourself? I can't wait to be enlightened!

  61. Jean Baptiste Maunier ? Ahah no I didn't. I just took pictures of the kid.

    No, not at all. She asked is this his first time and he sys he didn't think it was, because the first time was when they were playing piano and hugged right after. I don't know how people could have missed that...
    she even did the moaning noises and then they showed him carrying her and putting her on the bed for the second round.
