A Pink plans to debut in Japan this fall


 Article: A Pink to debut in Japan this fall... first event on August 4th

Source: OSEN via Naver

1. [+966, -40] Ah... everyone's going to Japan

2. [+740, -149] Whether they do well or not, I'll support them since it's A Pink

3. [+612, -101] They've already decided to go so might as well support them.. ㅠㅠ

4. [+108, -13] Cube's crazy... They still have a long way to go in Korea. Only Jung Eunji and Son Naeun are popular in the group..

5. [+99, -17] Girl's Day will overtake them at this rate.. They should focus in Korea, they're not at a level where their position is stabilized.

6. [+68, -10] Them failing in Japan is better for Korean fans... If they do well, they're going to hold concerts in Japan all the time and come to Korea once a month........

7. [+57, -0] Hallyu's about to fail, don't go to Japan.. Stay in Korea. They're going to lose Korean fans if they go, like KARA for example, and that's even with their success. Success isn't guaranteed so they should stay and maintain their Korean fans... Only Eunji and Naeun are known in Korea. A Pink isn't a group where they have talent like 2NE1 or a fandom like SNSD so stay in Korea.

8. [+50, -7] They shouldn't be worried about whether they succeed or not in Japan, they should be worried about being forgotten in Korea. There are new debuts every day, what do they think they have going for them that they can leave and go to Japan? I love A Pink to death but they're not at the top yet. Even if they were at the top, Japan's still a huge gamble. I hope they reconsider this. Their fans aren't going to sit around waiting.

  3. Kpop wave in Japan is not as great as before anymore

  4. japan is where the money is, people are crazy if they think they wont try to milk it if there's any chance

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yeah, i kind of agree... I think right now, apink is at this critical period where they are kinda popular but at the same time not completely well known. I think it's important for them to stabilize in korea now before branching out onto other countries.

  6. "A Pink isn't a group where they have talent like 2NE1 or a fandom like SNSD so stay in Korea."

    aww this comment

  7. i think Japaneses like their looks

    ReplyDelete
  8. sometimes i feel pity of japan >.< all idols go there and idk... if they have fans is okay but anyway. i wonder how they feel to have all korean idols there and skjdhjadjkas xD

    ReplyDelete
  9. Bad idea...
    They should go harder for that NGG title in SKorea.
    If they go to japan (just like any other group does) they'll probably loose some hype in skorea.
    And eventually never amount to anything...

  12. Japan, if you talk about POP and the biggest fandom ...
    no one cant beat the host like AKB48 and any groups from Johney's JR

  15. well doesn't japan like cute innocent girls?
    if they do they'll make tonsa moneh

    ReplyDelete
  16. loled at the talent part, yg really brainwashed some netz into thinking 2ne1 as good singers

    ReplyDelete
  17. Lol at those netizens telling them to stay at S.Korea. It's like parents telling their teen girls not to date any guy yet since they're still young.
    Anyway, I think APink will be alright at Japan? I mean, don't Japanese love cute girls like them? Who love acting all cute & innocent like? Who release cute songs? No No No & Mr Chu ooze that cutesy concept Japan love, no?
    And chill. ACUBE & APink plan to make another comeback in the 2nd half of 2014. Not sure when though.

    ReplyDelete
  18. they're good performers, far better than most kpop acts. that in itself is a talent.

    ReplyDelete
  19. as long as they sing live in all music show , i consider that as talent

    ReplyDelete
  20. oh not this again

    loled at the talent like 2ne1 part, yg really brainwashed some netz into thinking 2ne1 as very good singers ROFL

  23. Bless you who said this. I 10000% agree. Japan is where you could easily find a bunch of group with the same concept with APink. And for this i think i agree with knetizens. Just stabilize their position in Korea is more important now because they only currently known as the group who do not follow the sexy trend.

    ReplyDelete
  24. ACube is dumb to send them to Japan this year especially when at least two or three girl groups are planning to group this with considerable hype /attention around them.

    ReplyDelete
  25. A pink's concept will match well in Japan... joining a lineage of girl groups all cute, bubbly and innocent lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. Japan doesn't need another girl group for gods sake. They already have AKB48 which has like 140 members last time I heard?
    Built your popularity in Korea first before you decide to go anywhere

    ReplyDelete
  27. Apink is like every Japan girl group, the cute kind. Japan will like them but i don't this is the right time to go because Apink doesn't have a solid ground in Korea now. Girl's Day is easily gaining more popular every year.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think A Cube has surveyed APink's popularity in Japan. They are the group in the company,I'm sure they wouldn't risk it. They might have done deep studies and surveys

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hopefully Acube already learned something from Cube. I don't want my girls to pull a b2st.

    ReplyDelete
  30. wtv...i'll still support them..haha

    ReplyDelete
  31. For you

  34. i think its cuz kpop doesnt have the respect for japan it used to. now all of these groups release these disrespectful crappy badly pronounced japanese versions of their kpop songs and call it a debut. they dont realize how much time and effort older groups made. older groups speak conversational/fluent japanese and even lived there for a while to connect to the people.

    ReplyDelete
  35. but talent netz meant they are great singers actually .where they are one of the most overrated vocally,there are many groups who have much better singer than 2ne1

    ReplyDelete
  37. You are talking like if all japanese girlgroups are cute all the time, do more research please.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am honestly curious at how long they can keep the innocent concept until they change it up.

    ReplyDelete
  39. i don't see any clarification of what they meant by "talent" in the original comment so you're just pulling things out of your ass now.

    ReplyDelete
  40. They love cute preteen girls and they already have plenty of them.

    ReplyDelete
  41. what survey? they are just signing with a company called j-rock which have bap and tara in their label in japan.

    ReplyDelete
  42. As far as i'm concerned Minzy can freestyle better than most idols. Boy or girl. CL can rap and compose wicked songs. BOM might be a little shaky (and her technique isn't as good), but she isn't someone you would categorise as "talentless". As for Dara, well nobody hates Dara so we'll leave it at that. Lol. (No, I'm not a YG stan.)

    ReplyDelete
  43. well they can sing better than Apink that's for sure

    ReplyDelete
  44. But they are good singers, maybe not the best, but they're better than some others top groups. So your comment it's invalid.

    ReplyDelete
  45. ignore him/her . they just want to start another stupid war

    ReplyDelete
  46. 6. [+68, -10] Them failing in Japan is better for Korean fans... If they do well, they're going to hold concerts in Japan all the time and come to Korea once a month........

    Soshi?

    ReplyDelete
  47. so talent to you is a "better singer"???

    ReplyDelete
  48. does anyone from cube do well in Japan? i know 4minute flopped, how does beast do?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Especially a group that have A LOttttttt of members.

    ReplyDelete
  50. so you think singers are only talented people??


    2ne1 are known for putting up amazing live performances thats enough for them to be considered as talented.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Good luck and please learn japanese first before make a debut in japan. PLEASE !

    ReplyDelete
  52. Beast was so-so

    ReplyDelete
  53. i know j artists are different but you're gonna have to link me to the non cute girl groups. i need to see it to believe it.

    ReplyDelete
  54. no they are not they are actually one of the worst proven

    ReplyDelete
  55. Girl's Day will overtake them at this rate.. THIS!!!!!!!!! my friend from korea said girls day really popular in there. Snsd >>>>>>>>>>>2ne1>>>>>>>>Girlsday>>>>sistar>>>apink

    ReplyDelete
  56. ignore him/her . obviously they just haters . what they say is all irrelevant . lol

    ReplyDelete
  57. Gosh. Calm down peep

    ReplyDelete
  58. Even tough it's, I don't think it will happen.

    ReplyDelete
  59. 7. [+57, -0] Hallyu's about to fail, don't go to Japan.. Stay in Korea. They're going to lose Korean fans if they go, like KARA for example, and that's even with their success. Success isn't guaranteed so they should stay and maintain their Korean fans... Only Eunji and Naeun are known in Korea. A Pink isn't a group where they have talent like 2NE1 or a fandom like SNSD so stay in Korea.

    ––– I Agree they need to be really stable in Korea or else they will just become a Korean group famous in Japan only like many others where their fandoms just reduced due to their inactivities in Korea :/

    ReplyDelete
  60. yes.. as if singing is the only talent in the world.. shallow minds shallow minds..

    ReplyDelete
  61. Let's not analyse one comment and start fan-war. Every group has talent but they are praised in different ways.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yes, I will. Thanks for your advice :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. At least have another comeback before they go. Or just don't go until later. What's the rush?

    ReplyDelete
  64. A Pink isn't a group where they have talent like 2NE1 or a fandom like SNSD so stay in Korea.

    This .. ..they should stay in korea a few years more.. ..they need strong fandom in korea 1st.. ..

    ReplyDelete
  65. rofl dumbfuck bjs call evey one haters whoever talk the truth which dont favour their bias

    ReplyDelete
  66. They have presence, which is vital and takes talent.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Right and hallyu is dying out in Japan new groups aren't really accepted with open arms unless their promoted by an older well established group there (exo by TVXQ and winner by BB) the slight tension between SK and Japan isn't helping either

    ReplyDelete
  68. But Minzy can sing, CL can sing, Bom is a little shaky (she definitely got better since this come back), and Dara improved and still better than most girl group members who can barely hold a tune.

    So why you so pressed??

    ReplyDelete
  69. I think the kpop craze in japan is pretty much dead already

    ReplyDelete
  70. Mostly until the maknae (Hayoung) can be said as "grown up" or "mature" enough to turn their head to sexy concept

    ReplyDelete
  71. their rapping aint the shit either.


    They only have stage presence that covers all their so called "talent"

    ReplyDelete
  72. noooo :/ but I agree --> [+612, -101] They've already decided to go so might as well support them.. ㅠㅠ



    a better plan would be to stay in Korea and don't debut into other countries unless maybe all the members are truly interested in learning the language, culture etc and they're given songs with understandable lyrics.

    ReplyDelete
  73. all Apink have is Eunji, and Minzy will run a vocal train on her, even Bom can ruin Eunji.

    ReplyDelete
  74. just how many accounts do you have ?

    ReplyDelete
  75. ROFL there are 1234567890- female singers better than minzy vocally,bom is one of the worst ,dara is fuckin useless,cl is not much good either,she just screams

    ReplyDelete
  76. Yes Japan does like that, but they have plenty of girl groups with that concept so it's nothing new to them.

    ReplyDelete
  77. they pattern reminds me of secret.
    debuting in japan after got famous song T.T

    ReplyDelete
  78. BOTH Knetizens and Inetz


    people always been brainwashed that 2ne1 are these godlike talented girls
    when even there self proclaimed main vocalist can't even sing to save her life.

    ReplyDelete
  79. just ignore this human . she/he created more than one account with the same name . ROFLMAO

    ReplyDelete
  80. YESSS!! Finally someone said it. Secret was gaining popularity in Korea when they went to Japan but they failed and their popularity in Korea went down too.

    ReplyDelete
  81. But knetz meant exactly singing talent

  83. haha voldemin is fabulous.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I think A-pink has the right look for Japan, but there will be a lot of competition. And they'll have to go outside of their comfort zone. In Korea they are like the only really successful girl group that holds the innocent concept. But in Japan soo many groups have the innocent school girl look. And unfortunately sometimes these cutesy groups appeal to the pervy Japanese fanboys. A pink isn't known for relying on that, but in Japan they may have to do a few of the strange or racy fan service. Plus I agree w/ the comment saying Girls Day could surpass them. Girls Day is gaining ground too and they are staying Korea. If A pink doesn't succeed then they'll waste time in Japan while Girls Day is doing well in Korea. It happened to SECRET. Before they advanced to Japan they were doing pretty well, but then soon enough in Japan people lost interest and when they returned to Korea, they weren't as on top as usual.

  86. TBH i am really not liking the idea of japan debut but
    2. [+740, -149] Whether they do well or not, I'll support them since it's A Pink

    anyway this
    8. [+50, -7] They shouldn't be worried about whether they succeed or not in Japan, they should be worried about being forgotten in Korea. There are new debuts every day, what do they think they have going for them that they can leave and go to Japan? I love A Pink to death but they're not at the top yet. Even if they were at the top, Japan's still a huge gamble. I hope they reconsider this. Their fans aren't going to sit around waiting.

    is really insightful

    ReplyDelete
  87. Who didnt want go there.. ..2nd largest music market in the world.. ..lol

    ReplyDelete
  88. Yep. SECRET was really doing well, but after Japan they lost too much ground.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I presume you have not watched any of their concert. Their live performances are amazing. There is not much difference between their live and their tracks. On top of that, their stage presence is great.

    ReplyDelete
  90. call me pesimist but as i love apink and secret. i'm afraid they'll failed there. seeing secret popularity now makes me sad

    ReplyDelete
  91. You again? Yiu get pressed when its 2ne1...poor you.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I think they should solidify themselves in Korea first, they still don't have a solid fandom and their hype will die down. Many groups go to Japan once they start gaining more popularity and it's never the same again once they come back.
    I hope they do well and their popularity in Korea will continue to rise so I hope A Cube knows what they're doing.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Plus I agree w/ the comment saying Girls Day could surpass them. Girls Day is gaining ground too and they are staying Korea. If A pink doesn't succeed then they'll waste time in Japan while Girls Day is doing well in Korea. It happened to SECRET. Before they advanced to Japan they were doing pretty well, but then soon enough in Japan people lost interest and when they returned to Korea, they weren't as on top as usual.

    ReplyDelete
  94. excuse me , people wouldn't be a fan of them if they really did not have talent . it wasn't something that anyone can forced or you may say brainwashed . YG wasn't that stupid . plus 2NE1 doesn't have this goddess face like common girl group have . probably if they didn't have an amazing talent like they do have now , 2NE1 will not be at where they are now . so obviously , it has something to do with the different in music and talent . smh

    ReplyDelete
  95. it sort of reminds me of The Boss (DaeGukNamAh), they could make it big in Korea, knowing that they were one of the winners of the best rookie award (the other two were SISTAR and CNBlue) I have always figured if they didn't go to Japan they would get all the credits in Korea.
    On top of that they don't seem to have the luck lol, despite the good-looking and talented members, the previous company had a scandal so they had to start all over again from the beginning with a new agency, they're so underrated.

    ReplyDelete
  96. my ears our open...
    sorry pink panda your unnies not that good and if it wasn't for the cute concept and uncle fans your precious Apink would still be in nugu land :)

  97. They won't be alright in Japan. Japanese love cute girls, but they already have a lot of them. They don't have anything to offer.

    ReplyDelete
  98. that's right sis... the troll sooo pathetic

    ReplyDelete
  99. I like Secret too, not fan of Apink but i occasionally listen to them. It was really sad at how Secret lost their ground in Korea. After that stupid scandal that Hyosung it got worse for them.

    ReplyDelete
  100. i love your " you again ? " lol

    ReplyDelete
  101. They've got girl groups right there who can do it 100x better than APink.

    ReplyDelete
  102. BUTTHURT BJS LOGIC #01

    whne you say the truth and when they lost the argument they call every one a hater

    ReplyDelete
  103. Get out. Go to your own corner and sulk.delulu

    ReplyDelete
  104. SECRET used to be on a rival level with Sistar . Even after Sistar had the hit So Cool. But then Secret was shipped to Japan. During that time Sistar hit it big w/ Alone. By the time Secret got back there was no catching up sadly... Even now they've lost the popularity they had during their debut. But I think w/ a few more good promotions like Poison or something like Hyosung's solo (not something like I Do I Do) they can get back up.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Why do i even bother? You just failed as a troll

    ReplyDelete
  106. Try Flower :D and Happiness!! They are pretty good!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Being able to go on TV and promote is so important for success in Jpop. BoA could chat with Downtown on Heyx3, DBSK could chat and do gags with SMAP on SxS. Fluency is so important, but Kpop companies are going to make a quick buck and can't/won't spend months on that.

    ReplyDelete
  108. When you tell haters theyre pressed they go all defensive mode and bash.

    ReplyDelete
  109. They are talking about SNSD. SNSD have comeback in Korea once in a month before they start their tour again. So this comment is directed to SNSD.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Hooray ^.^ Something positive about 2NE1~!

    ReplyDelete
  111. i call you a hater cuz this is your 124823585845 times bashing 2NE1
    get over it 2NE1 >>>>>>>>>>>wall>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> your fave

    ReplyDelete
  112. Praying that what happened to Rainbow doesn't happen to APINK.

    ReplyDelete
  113. They should stay in Korea. Their biggest hit is "No x3" and "Mr. Chu" is doing well, but they've only just reached fame.

    GsD probably could overtake them depending upon how successful they do next month.

    ReplyDelete
  114. sorry but some people can't take atrocious brainwash that your Papa YG have done.

    can't sit my ass knowing that there so many people out there that mindlessly believe that 2ne1 are super talented.

    Please understand that we feel aggrieved that 2ne1 are getting called "talented" when in reality there FAR from that.

    Thanks, mauh <3

    ReplyDelete
  115. Nah apink has eunji and bomi
    And in no way is bom a better vocalist that eunji are you kidding lolol??

    ReplyDelete
  116. If Girls Day gets another hit they'll sweep past Apink. A pink would be able to catch up, but if they are in Japan then they'll stay behind. But then if they fail in Japan then they will have 2 loses. You never know I could see A pink doing well, but a lot of other Kpop groups have the 'look' for Japan and still don't do well there.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Little Freak 'ㅂ'*June 15, 2014 at 3:06 AM

    not really, compare their cute image to Japanese girls, they still lack

    ReplyDelete
  118. More like Bom ruined Bom

    ReplyDelete
  119. It's because agencies don't make an actual effort anymore, they just want to make a quick buck off of Japanese fans & that's it. As someone said, the groups don't really promote on shows anymore so they have zero connection with their fans.
    If it isn't am older artist then it's harder for newer groups to truly make it out there.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Little Freak 'ㅂ'*June 15, 2014 at 3:08 AM

    No. Their cuteness is nothing compare to Japanese girls

    ReplyDelete
  121. there are some like MAX or Bright but they're either nobodies or old. generally Japanese solo female acts have a stronger image (Namie Amuro, Koda Kumi, Superfly, etc) or are the girl-next-door types (ayaka, YUI, Nishino Kana).

    in general, girl groups and solo men are for male fans, while boy bands and solo women are for female fans.

    ReplyDelete
  122. but of course haters are gonna get pressed over it and attack 2NE1
    http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7qt0qVlBR1rpq25f.gif

    ReplyDelete
  123. That's happened twice, last year and this year so it's not like it's happened all the time. This can be directed at more than SNSD since others pretty much do the same thing if they have popularity in Japan.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Funny how these korean idols go to Japan to make $$$ only to talk shit about them. What happened long ago isn't an excuse for racism.

    ReplyDelete
  125. it really isn't that important though. SNSD on the whole cannot function on Japanese TV shows but they surpassed KARA for a bit in popularity there. it all comes down to proper marketing in Japan. that's how One Direction got so big here (Docomo commercials every 5 minutes, all in English mind you) but Beyonce or Rihanna are basically flops.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Kardashians have Thousand of fans
    Selena Gomez have Thousand of fans

    SNSD have TONS of fans.


    and 2ne1 have MANY fans too.


    I never said 2ne1 were talent-less but There FAR from what people think.




    2ne1 is exactly like Rihanna situation. There Not that talented but they have has charisma, the charm, the unique concept and the good songs to make it so successful and gain these much fans.

    ReplyDelete
  127. could say the same thing about snsd

    ReplyDelete
  128. I think the connection is being made because netizens have complained before how SNSD promotes in Korea for a month then heads back to Japan especially since they take longer breaks between comebacks (notably the long break between The Boys and IGAB)

    ReplyDelete
  129. But that's not their main concept for their Japanese releases, Apink's entire image is innocent & cutesy while SNSD has been able to expand and experiment more out there.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Somehow, i feel bad for fans in Korea. When their fave group becomes successful in Japan, chances are they will always go there to promote and barely to Korea. :(

    ReplyDelete
  131. No offense but Apink has their skirts just as short as the girl groups who do "sexy" concepts. the only difference is Apink wears pastel colors.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Well talent is a broad term. It doesn't only equate to bring good singers

    ReplyDelete
  133. When, and instead of do some sexy expression, they shake their butts and do aeygo.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I'm an Apink fan but I think they should strengthen their fanbase first before heading to Japan.I wish them all the best though.

    ReplyDelete
  135. 2ne1 is exactly like Rihanna situation. There Not that talented but they have has charisma, the charm, the unique concept and the good songs to make it so successful and gain these much fans.



    It was never the talent.


    It was only YG media play that brainwashed everyone that these girls are super talented.
    Think of it this way, if they were actually talented we would have been seeing a lot of comments that ppl normally say about Ailee, Hyorin or even Spica. But I don't see it that often.


    well fans are the exception b/c everything 2ne1 do is perfect in their eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I think the fact that they actually sing live or make an effort to puts them miles ahead of some girl groups. And their MR removed vids are pretty amazing . Soo... it's not such a far-fetched statement..

  137. ... why. Japan is not as profitable for K-Pop groups anymore.
    A Pink's gonna turn into KARA if they do well in Japan (I don't see that happening, but the way KARA made Korea unimportant and irrelevant in their general activities). Girl's Day is on the same level as A Pink right now, and I think it would be wise as the commenters stated for A Pink to cement their popularity before people start stepping over them.

  138. Like seriously... Comment didn't say 2NE1 was #1 at this or that. Just that they had talent. Is it that hard to deal with..? :/

    ReplyDelete
  139. sorry but some people can't take atrocious brainwash that your Papa YG have done.

    can't sit my ass knowing that there so many people out there that mindlessly believe that 2ne1 are super talented.

    Please understand that we feel aggrieved that 2ne1 are getting called "talented" when in reality there FAR from that.

    Thanks, mauh <3

  140. Hyuna's a great performer too but I've seen a lot of people ignore that and say she's not talented at all -_-
    Especially considering she's venturing into composing and writing! She's got potential for sure.

    actually I'm so excited to see Knetizens's reaction once Apink comeback with a sexy concept since those keyboard warriors hate sexy girl groups so much.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Very true which is why I believe they announced a second album this year. They took all of 2012 off and was in Japan most of the time (minus TTS and Hyoyeon on DWTS/IY2) and yeah fans and non-fans complained how SM didn't care about Korea.

  144. Ailee have fans . they think she have the talent
    Hyorin have fans . they think she have talent
    Spica have fans . they think they have talent


    so is it wrong to say
    2NE1 have fans because they are talented ???

    why you always in denial ?

  145. Only a few groups are really doing well in Japan. The big name groups like TVXQ, SNSD, and BIGBANG are still raking it in. But for others it's getting tougher to do well in Japan. So I want A pink to do well, but... I don't see their debut being a huge hit. They are doing well but aren't huge in Korea yet so I don't see how them debuting in Japan with just a Japanese remake of an old Korean album will make a big splash in the Japanese market where they have 1,000 other girl groups with almost the same look.

  146. "Even Bom can ruin Eunji"
    Quite a few idols can ruin Bom though. Eunji is included. She's got more range and stability than Bom has ever had.

  147. Being talented isn't all about being good at singing, you know.

  148. after being a fan of kpop for 8+ years, i have never nor will i ever like any kpop japan promotions. ugh. i understand that it is necessary sometimes but can we please tone it down a little? doing concerts in japan is okay but investing everything in japan to the point where you're blurring the line between a kpop group and jpop group (btw i love arashi,akb,etc.) just ruins everything.


    i dont know how many times i've lost interest in a group who left korea for way too long. snsd is my first and only love, and when they did mr mr promotions i kept forcing myself to fanboy (not to the song) to snsd but it's not as strong as it used to be. its not that i dont like snsd anymore, but i seriously don't care as much anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  149. nah, it's not that. Korean culture in Japan is basically on life support, and it has more to do with Japan's fad-based media consumption style than anything. Japan flies through ~crazes~ at a pretty rapid pace. that's why Korea fell out of the top 10 for most travel agencies' Golden Week rankings this year (Taiwan is #1 now) and K-dramas are nowhere to be seen.

    political tensions also play a role, obviously.

  150. yeah, and you copied this comment from a previous translated nb article about apink.

    Nobody say 2NE1 is the most talented group but that doesnt mean that 2NE1 has NO TALENT. Knetizen is right, 2NE1 has talent.

  152. Only if u are as big as SNSD/BB/TVXQ u should go to japan ud not sray in korea till u becone huge

  153. Their live performances are better than their original tracks, imo.

  154. how will they promote though?? all kpop idols are banned in the most watched music show in japan.....

    Sorry

  156. its normal . butthurt people everywhere . this type of people will get their life miserable if they saw someone praised my baby 2NE1 . lol

    ReplyDelete
  157. yes yes yes T_T their latest Sketchbook performance is precious .

    ReplyDelete
  158. And also it's not all about singing, they have something that could make them standout from other girl groups out there. What makes 2NE1 and SNSD different from other girl groups is their experience and presence.

  160. Just saying' Secert, Beast, and Infinite lost a lot of their popularity when they went to Japan for a long time. CNblue also isn't selling as much as they used to.

  161. Srsly ppl are being so two faced abt apink e___e i dont see what the difference is between apink and gee/genie/oh era snsd lol and sone brag all the time abt GG nvr resorting to sexy concepts and yet critisize apink for having the exact same 'cutesy' concept snsd had a year into their debut and still what rose them to fame. Yall so fake lmao

    ReplyDelete
  162. but there's people who appreciate her talent . its normal when some people likes you the other doesn't . and imo , Hyuna really stand out on stage among all 4 Minutes members

    ReplyDelete
  163. Too bad SNSD came to Japan with a stronger image. They didn't go in with cute and their most successful song was Mr.Taxi.

    ReplyDelete
  164. snsd had a huge fandom and a lot of initial interest in them already when they debuted in japan. but the way they function isn't going to sustain them with the japanese public like BoA or TVXQ. it's apparent already.

    The past Bom sang better but imo Eunji is better than her now. (I'm a diehard Bombshell btw)
    However, personally I think 2NE1 as a GROUP sings better than Apink.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I know Japan is where they can make real tons load of money, but it is also a place where it'll pulls down their Korean fame if they're there for too long. And whatever more if the group isn't fully established, and by established I mean like Big Bang, DBSK, B2ST and what not. Hmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I was just saying that even people who aren't talented can get fans too.


    Your the one that's in denial
    2ne1 aren't talented. They have like 1-2 octaves, CL slur her rap, their dance isn't even that hard compare to other idols and so on~~...They just have their stage presence, it's the truth.


    I used to love 2ne1 thinking there super talented.
    But i come in realization that..Honestly They only have the presence/charisma.

    ReplyDelete
  168. The irony of how their 'sexy' outfits expose hardly anything compared to their innocent outfits ^_^

  169. They fap and then hate later. Misogyny... e__e

  170. This was said more than once in by K-netizen that's why i kind new they were talking about SNSD. I know it doesn't happen all the time. But the long break they take before comebacks is being mentioned more than once. I am hoping they are making a comeback at the end of this year.

  171. Bald Mr.WorldwideJune 15, 2014 at 3:34 AM

    It's normal to see people deny 2NE1's talent in this blog.

    ReplyDelete
  172. I second this. To me, a big part of success of the group is having stage presence. To me, 2NE1 draws me in as they sing. What's the point of having of top notch vocals and overly choreographed routines if you don't capture the audiences' attention.

  173. Girl's Day changed as soon as the Maknae became 19

  174. Dude let it go. Apink fans are getting so fucking annoying. Your favs aren't top tier and I can't wait till Girlsday wipes the floor with them and Eunji decides to leave the shitshow. When you mess with groups like SNSD and 2NE1 their fans will call you out for it. Can't take it then leave. It's not or faults your favs copied someone else.

    -Didn't think this was true. But @2NE1islove proved otherwise.

  177. Yep, but at least they leveled out and have pretty steady sales. Kara on the other hand took a nose dive pretty much from where they were.

  178. "I never said 2ne1 were talent-less but There FAR from what people think."

    "2ne1 aren't talented"

    sorry but your statement made me hungry because you made me think too much understand it

    and presence and charisma is consider talent too . not all singer have this .

    can we just stop now ?
    at the end of the day , everyone has their own opinion

    enjoy your day !

  179. And Girl's Day too, with Twinkle Twinkle they became popular in Korea and the company decided to ship them to Japan

    ReplyDelete
  180. I made the comment so i don't see how i copied it. I am not hating Apink i am just pointing out at how they may be doing innocent concept but they wear same clothes as "sexy" girl group concept and they get away with it because their concept is innocent.

  181. 2011 was a great year for Secret then TS deported them in Japan.

  188. Have you ever tried listening to their album? Listen to their songs first. I won't blame you if you hate on them, it's just a mater of preference. I don't like other girl groups either. Yeah, their not one of the most talented ones but they're one of the best. Talent is not enough. A lot of idols out there are very talented but they're talent is not enough to make them stand out.
