[Pann] Big Bang's inappropriate depiction of the hanbok in 'Bae Bae' MV?









Pann: Big Bang's 'Bae Bae' MV uses the hanbok for cajolement

1. [+135, -12] Yeah... Block B's music video got tons of hate for using the kimono distastefully, I thought it was weird how people were staying quiet about Big Bang

2. [+110, -13] If YG somehow weasels their way out of this, they're truly a criminal power house

3. [+109, -12] Wow, people seriously only praise Big Bang ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+45, -2] Well obviously to their fans, using the hanbok distastefully is not as big of a deal as doing it to another country's traditional dress ㅋㅋㅋㅋ The music video even showed a sexual scene with a woman in a hanbok, why isn't this getting more hate? Instead the fans are going crazy calling it cool. At least BBCs acknowledged where they were wrong, but Big Bang fans are straight up psychos ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ You go to the Melon page and there are fans saying they like how the members lift up the skirts. Such psychos.

5. [+39, -2] They don't even care what scandal they get into anymore because their company covers everything for them

6. [+37, -3] I feel bad for BBCs now... the kimono part was edited out of their music video and was only used for the teaser so Block B got all that hate. I guess this is the power of a company ㅠ

7. [+29, -0] I'm not a Big Bang fan or a Block B fan but it's funny to me how Block B got all that hate over their kimono scandal but people are so busy praising Big Bang for essentially the same thing but with a hanbok;

8. [+27, -3] This makes me so angry. A hanbok represents Korea and using it in such a distasteful manner is making a mockery out of our traditional dress. They clearly don't care anymore about whatever line they're crossing because they're just crossing them all. I can't believe VIPs are shielding this. So the music video being rated 19+ makes it okay to use the hanbok distastefully like this? The group clearly deserves their fans.

9. [+22, -1] Kimono belongs to Japan and the hanbok belongs to Korea but Koreans defended the kimono more than they're defending the hanbok ㅋㅋㅋㅋ using the hanbok distastefully should be a bigger issue

10. [+21, -0] I was wondering why people were being so quiet about that scene where they lift up the skirt of a foreigner wearing a hanbok...

11. [+20, -0] A hanbok is an elegant and classy form of dress, it was not made to be used in such a cheap manner in a music video like this. This company is such a mess, they can do whatever they want and people will just suck up to them.

12. [+18, -0] If this gets buried, I will seriously feel so regretful for BBCs.

  1. If you're an international fan who doesn't understand the significance, I think shielding them is a pretty crappy thing to do. I know it's probably not Big Bang's idea but this is kind of offensive...

    here comes all the comments calling them/anyone 'haters' for saying anything remotely critical towards opparrs even if it's the truth....

  5. Heh. I knew this would become a discussion. Very hypocritical to be honest.

    ReplyDelete
  6. At least Block B edited it out after they got hate.

    ReplyDelete
  7. VIPs have fun defending him. u will look like the 'oppa didnt mean it' fangirls u hate

    ReplyDelete
  8. Sorry i didnt notice it because i was too busy looking at the members especially Bingu TOP

    ReplyDelete
  9. Why would they do that after what happened with Block B...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Not gonna shield this even though I'm a VIP... Tbh when I first saw this I thought they would get into trouble for it...

    ReplyDelete
  11. I do noticed it when I watched the mv and just waiting for an article about this issue

    ReplyDelete
  12. Haters gonna hate ! Just because TOP looked under that girl's skirt ?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Bcs its national thing what doea gorls are wearing

    ReplyDelete
  14. What's wrong is wrong, I'm not gonna shield this even though I'm a VIP.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Top creeps me the hell out in those shots...

    ReplyDelete
  16. NO dear. Hanbok is Korea traditional consume. It's part of culture.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't know, with groups like Big Bang who write a great deal of their music and have a lot of say in what they do, I do think it was most likely their idea.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think is a bit offensive but of course they are not going to get hate like Block B. Hypocresi level knetz

    ReplyDelete
  19. That skirt is not just any skirt. It's hanbok which is korean traditional dress

    ReplyDelete
  20. because it involves something culture related. anyone will get offended if you insult their culture in whatever manner. logic stuff

    ReplyDelete
  21. YG gets away with everything!!! seriously i think SM gets too much hate.

    ReplyDelete
  22. then just hate them if u want kkk

    ReplyDelete
  23. Why would they do that after BlockB got that much hate over the same issue? Don't the production staff read news?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Given the sexual content of the music video and lyrics, I thought the hanbok was kind of like representing one's "first night"? didnt think it would be an issue cause it fits in the context.....

    ReplyDelete
  25. Kinda off topic but does anyone know who directed this music video? It feels very Ninagawa Mika-esque.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The Comfort of Women concept again

    ReplyDelete
  27. it's a hanbok if it's just a skirt it won't be a huge problem.. it's not just haters gonna hate or something . stay real and logic.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Block B got tons of hate but since they are Big Bang they get a pass. Disgusting.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hmmm but arent they supposed to be undressing and having sex..? Thats how it would look no?

  31. I didn't watch the mv so I didn't really know about this, but if I did I definitely wouldn't have been quiet about it. This is just as bad as what BlockB did... No one should shield them for this.

    ReplyDelete
  32. [+135, -12] Yeah... Block B's music video got tons of hate for using
    the kimono distastefully, I thought it was weird how people were staying
    quiet about Big Bang


    my thought exactly
    just because they are BB doesn't mean they're allowed to do these kind of stuff

    ReplyDelete
  33. Are we not gonna talk abt how it's all white girls in hanbok too? Not a single Korean. Gonna represent their country with the hanbok but no actual Korean girls.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yep.. :/ Honestly, it was a dumb idea. Like, their first come back in three years.. They could have been a BIT careful..

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hm... They wrote the song together so maybe they decide the concept by themselves too.
    But dont they realize it's too much even if it's someone else who decided the concept for them?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Making fun of your own culture is different than making fun of someone else's culture.

  37. Big Bangs inappropriate depiction of music, more like

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hello Haters and netizen fans haha . why ?? People put hanbok don't have sex stupid

    ReplyDelete
  39. it's really not appropriated.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Block B > Shit bang

    ReplyDelete
  41. I noticed that too. I knew this would be brought up. But this is YG. They can do whatever they want and there will be fans shielding them. I swear their oppars and unniers could kill a person and fans are gonna come up with excuses like 'nope oppar and unnier is innocent they had a traumatic experience before while playing volleyball'

    Oooh i cant wait to see inets bashing knets for "over reacting". NO STFU you have no right as a international fans, to criticize them for voicing their discomfort on their costumes/cultures. I can already see comments popping up as I write this, annoying ifans defending their oppas already.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I haven't watched the mv yet so can't judge it

    ReplyDelete
  44. Didn't a member of Big Bang kill someone?

    ReplyDelete
  45. I thought they're dressed as gisaengs though. With the hair and accessories. I mean we see it a lot in Korean period dramas and how they guys hide behind the skirts and everything. So thought there wouldn't be any problems tbh

    ReplyDelete
  46. But what blockb did is still wrong lol regardless if big bang has done it too it does not make blockb innocent they are both in the wrong

    ReplyDelete
  47. ......um.... please, let's not bring this up.

    ReplyDelete
  48. No one said that. But if Block B gets hated on, another group who basically does the same thing should get criticised, too.

    ReplyDelete
  49. but you brought it up first with the killing a person....

    ReplyDelete
  50. So overrated... It was rated 19+ for a reason, why are they shocked?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ok don't bring in YG as a whole just because there are some people who do things that. Are wrong.
    Big Bang was wrong and most VIP's acknowledge that that argument can be the same for any other group

    ReplyDelete
  52. Sm hardly gets hate no matter how many times sm gets a lawsuit knetz and inetz still seem to side with sm imo yg actually gets most of the hate because of the drug scandals

    ReplyDelete
  53. Kpop is full of hypocrisy anyway, you will always see Kpop fans bashing a group for their mistakes but ignoring their biases' ones.

    ReplyDelete
  54. It was a situational statement.

    ReplyDelete
  55. What? K-netz practically suck Sm's dick 24/7. Calling Tao, Kris, Luhan, and Hangeng traitors for leaving a company for mistreating them? Yeah right, give me a break.

    ReplyDelete
  56. It's not even making fun here. Both Block B and Big Bang portrayed the girls in a sexual way, and it would have been okay if it wasn't for the traditional clothing. The fact that they just HAD to put those women in Hanboks makes it not okay, at least imo.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Of course people are gonna keep quiet about this lmao i do feel sorry for block b tho

    ReplyDelete
  58. off topic just goona leave this here

  59. I don't get how people don't see this mv as problematic tbh. Just looking at the gifs makes me uncomfortable.

  60. THIS. i thought so too

  61. Mrs. Sherlock HolmesMay 1, 2015 at 4:48 AM

    I have ever seen these kind of scene in drama or movies, so i thought its fine.

    ReplyDelete
  62. 1. [+135, -12] Yeah... Block B's music video got tons of hate for using the kimono distastefully, I thought it was weird how people were staying quiet about Big Bang
    Didnt know Block B had a kimono scandal.

    ReplyDelete
  63. But they are getting criticised i have already seen the backlash of it on tumblr and twitter and not this article so its not like big bang just got away with it

    ReplyDelete
  64. i never have and never will be the oppa shield fan..so please have at it because it is clearly wrong..but i hope no haters would take this advantage to fuel it even more as we can see countless time how many things are twisted for their own desires..big bang, please apologize, this is your country heritage.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. the mv itself is weirder than any johnny deep's movies. I feels like on drugs lol.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I mean I see why it's 19+ but it's still quite suggestive it seems.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Right now, fans should differentiate between hating and critizing. I feel so regretful when a BBC said that she called slut by people when BASTARZ released their problematic teaser.

    ReplyDelete
  68. thats what i thought. im sure the people in olden days does it like that when entertaining rich men/emperors

    ReplyDelete
  69. It would have been more understandable if they blended it with the appropriate environment and costumes. They did not. They used hanboks on foreign women to represent gisaengs in a modern/futuristic setting?

    ReplyDelete
  70. the comparison was with block b but sm stans can't help make it about them and sm

    ReplyDelete
  71. with the amount of scandals they've had, you'd think they'd learn to be more careful. (and i say this as a fan)

    ReplyDelete
  72. where have u been lol missed alot for the first time inetizen agreed with knetizen ...

    ReplyDelete
  73. Big Bang never got hate to begin with, but if this becomes a big issue YG might consider editing it out, who knows.

    ReplyDelete
  74. It's rated 19+ for a reason.

    ReplyDelete
  75. "Kind of offensive"


    CALL THE POLICE!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Lol I bet a lot of users here were waiting fervently for this article to come out

    ReplyDelete
  77. how cliche
    the kpop fandom needs better lines

    ReplyDelete
  78. Bae bae mv was so weird,random and all over the place ;;;;

    ReplyDelete
  79. already notice it when i see the video.. i was suprised there's article about it , i thought it just my feeling that it's a hanbok but apparently it's true. (?) Tbh, you can't judge k-netz by saying overreacting or something. it's their culture..

    ReplyDelete
  80. Says who? Haven't seen many VIPs defending anything? Why are you people always putting others down and acting all high and mighty?

    ReplyDelete
  81. talk to producer not bb ok bb has nothing to do with this ...

    ReplyDelete
  82. People get offended by anything and everything nowadays.

    ReplyDelete
  83. i feel embarrassed watching the part they lifted the girls' hanbok.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Me *shamelessly downloads gif. Thanks 😉

    ReplyDelete
  85. LMAO even as a fan I think the hanbok issue is something to be less worried about compared to the hidden sexual and drug references the MV is depicting. But other than that, I love the song so I don't really care.

    ReplyDelete
  86. lol
    both group were wrong

    ReplyDelete
  87. And the put the Hanboks on the moon too! Hanbok's don't traditionally show up in space so that's pretty offensive too.

    ReplyDelete
  88. lol where is the lie

    ReplyDelete
  89. It ain't a Bigbang comeback without any controversy. Expect more to come soon. But regarding this specific one, seeing as those women where portraying modern-day gisaengs (NOT comfort women) in the throes of passion then post-coitus, well... the hanbok worn that way makes sense? Unless you're T.O.P, nobody is dressed prim and proper during or right after sex, traditional clothing or not.

    ReplyDelete
  90. busy at school.. but yeah.. Big Bang should know better after that Block B kimono scandal.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Uhm sure, are the girls Korean ?

    ReplyDelete
  92. traditional clothing doesnt mean women who wear them dont do these kind of stuff. you think Korea is soooo conservative and close minded? pfft

    ReplyDelete
  93. Can't agree moreee. It's even weirder than any tom burton movie. quite funny tho

    ReplyDelete
  94. Searching For FreedomMay 1, 2015 at 4:52 AM

    it's bigbang.. it's ok... right?

    ReplyDelete
  95. yeah but it's still not bb fault it's the producer fault ...

    ReplyDelete
  96. naaaaa they probably had something to do with it. They just didn't think it would be an issue. Tbh there's many ways to interpret it. The chicks could be gisaengs, in which case I don't see the problem. Who knows? I guess for now they are in the wrong. I really don't think the issue will blow up though.

    ReplyDelete
  97. so it's offensive to u becase they put the hanbook on the moon?
    maybe they were trying to express something? like a korean idiom

    ReplyDelete
  98. Nah its not fine it would be okay if they didnt wear hanbok to do those scenes

    ReplyDelete
  99. pineapplemilkteaMay 1, 2015 at 4:53 AM

    Cant you read the comments on the articles? And there are many more that im sure nb didnt translate. please stop with the ridiculous superior attitude. ifans are not much better in the hypocrisy department.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I just watched, the song is not that good (or maybe im expecting too much) and it feels like they were high on drugs...
    The hanbok part was only for about 30 seconds but it is enough to make people feel disturbed about it.

    ReplyDelete
  101. If this does get burried.. I'm gonna lose respect.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I think they are getting angry because of the sexualising on the hanbok, which is, you know, their cultural dress and all. And 19+ rating does not give them a pass to use them in such a way?
    I don't know, I am just a part of the intl crowd. None of us have rights to decide what Koreans can be can't be upset over when it comes to national symbol.
    Also, it is pretty hypocritcal of fans to give Big Bang to get a pass while Block B didn't

    ReplyDelete
  103. your prove ??? give me a prove instead of guessing things

    ReplyDelete
  104. the reason why they are on the mood is bc of a korean story about how the moon looks.

    ReplyDelete
  105. LOL, another negative pann about Big Bang............


    NB is so busy with them =))

    ReplyDelete
  106. But it's not only you who owns the culture. There are many other people who respect and cherish the same culture.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Searching For FreedomMay 1, 2015 at 4:54 AM

    For a group as big as big bang, they can have a say in everything their do even their music are their own produce. Why suddenly, the MV is all up to producer lol.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I know ! And I care about other cultures but I'm not even shielding them seriously. Because if they do something wrong they should take responsibilities ( them or producers ) the thing is that for me there is absolutely nothing shocking ( maybe the moment TOP looks under that girl hanbok skirt but then GD appears, we can't see anything, so really I'd like to know in which way they are being disrespectful towards their own culture) , they are just doing rounds, dancing and eating rice cakes. If they were treating them like whores, slut whatever I would have agreed but it's not the case they are just having fun! Explain me.

    ReplyDelete
  109. And here come all the comments warning us of all the comments that are about to come.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Maraisaa (Morning Musume No.1)May 1, 2015 at 4:54 AM

    But its not BB's fault? Its the director of the MV.. lol

    ReplyDelete
  111. Yeah im kinda disturbed when I watched the mv. Like the women are all white models, and they are wearing hanbok, which is korea's traditional clothes. I do not know whey they do it though. I mean I know the song is about having sex, and imo it's kinda inappropriate to depict it using these attributes.

    ReplyDelete
  112. YG did not got away with CL's MTBD controversy. So if this issue blows up they will have to take responsibility.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Lol Zico, he looks so innocent here, i don't think even if he wanted to he couldn't talk back at Jessie, her being older than him and all she can talk down to him whereas he can't. It was not even a fair competition tbh.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I think it's dumb in general how Big Bang takes basically black American ideas, sell its to Asians, while putting white beauty on a pedastal. Like, huh? That's what I thought when I saw the video.

    ReplyDelete
  115. So the MV got rated 19+ because of this or the lyric's content? If it's inappropriate then public should ask to turn down this video though, as well as Block B's to make it fair.

    ReplyDelete
  116. pineapplemilkteaMay 1, 2015 at 4:55 AM

    Lets see what you will say if people insult your culture. Dont be like those oppas didnt mean it type of fans.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Amen to that .
    they should be criticised the same everyone have done with Block B .

    ReplyDelete
  118. Of course its okay its big bang lol

    ReplyDelete
  119. but you're missing the point of this pann? As #8 says, hanbok represents korea, of course they have a right to be offended by tainting something that represents their country

    ReplyDelete
  120. The overdramatic reactions on this website.... Ohhh god. And to think it was even worse with Block B. Ya'll need some Jesus.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Everyone even their fans seem to think that Bigbang is in the wrong so.....

    ReplyDelete
  122. if you have watched movies like frozen flower and other korean (x-rated) movies.. you will not find this MV that problematic.. i see the hanbok being used dirtier than this in that movies... i agree with comment saying that they portrayed gisaeng in this MV...

    ReplyDelete
  125. your prove i want prove ? and how u know ? plzz enlighten me ith your knowledge

    ReplyDelete
  126. I mean, I'm pretty sure 19+ is due to the nature of the lyrics just as much as what's depicted in the video, but it isn't like it had to be hanbok that they were wearing.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Mrs. Sherlock HolmesMay 1, 2015 at 4:56 AM

    I mean in some sageuk drama or movies, they wore hanbok right.

    ReplyDelete
  128. its a cultural dress just because people says so. People in the other era wears hanbok everyday and do they not wear them while entertaining guests? what about those dramas? have you not seen actors lifting up their hanboks? where have you been? under a rock with Patrick?

    ReplyDelete
  129. Funny thing that in a previous article comments where like " they are artists because they produce and have a say in their songs and albums "
    Or does that only apply to positive thongs????

    ReplyDelete
  130. Im sorry but ur dp its so cute ;; its kyungsoo right Q u Q

    ReplyDelete
  131. there are many people who respect and cherish pretty women in hanboks who want to have sex with you.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Someone people are on the border between who shot the MV and Bigbang themselves. Pretty sure they are both at fault. Sucks as a fan but it is what it is. I wonder if they'll address the issue..

    ReplyDelete
  133. sm gets hate because of the stereotype "sm idols = untalented, visual focused" i agree that yg gets away, but not with everything. cl's mtbd is an example. but the drug scandals are easily buried. thepower of $$$$$. imo the company's image would be fucked up without sean.

    prove of what? i have prove that big bang produce their own music. I'm just saying that it's stupid to assume that Big Bang have no say in the MV making. Also, where is your prove Big Bang have nothing to do with the MV?

    ReplyDelete
  136. Of course it does.


    Oppa is innocent and powerless if it's criticism. If it's praise, oppa is responsible for everything, he even held the camera himself while filming!

    ReplyDelete
  137. are there any korean stories where women in hanboks have sex?

    ReplyDelete
  138. Bigbang usually tell the director what to do. At least for 'Alive' they did.

    ReplyDelete
  139. they brought the Hanboks to the moon dude. its like Neil Armstrong putting the flag on the moon

    ReplyDelete
  140. zico's reaction is gold

    ReplyDelete
  141. Anyone who knows anything about Korean history and culture knows that the women here are portraying traditional gisaeng which was the Korean equivalent of a geisha or a Chinese Yiji a courtesan knowledgeable in poetry, dance, music, culture and politics, who entertained noblemen and royalty of the Joseon Dynasty.That is very different from Block B's portrayal of scantily clad Japanese women in traditional everyday Kimonos

    ReplyDelete
  142. Comfort women concept? :O

    ReplyDelete
  143. you sound like a typical 'oppa shielding' fan. Please stop making VIPs look bad

    ReplyDelete
  144. Yep its kyungsoo!

    ReplyDelete
  145. They always use white girls in their videos lmao.

    ReplyDelete
  146. if they kepy quiet u wouldn't be here

    ReplyDelete
  147. Please define 'Black American ideas'. I have never heard something so absurd.

    ReplyDelete
  148. nah, these k-netizens obviously know that the girls represent gisaengs with that hairstyle and the way they wore the hanbok. Even the act of lifting their skirts is something that often i see in historical dramas. but ofc they only want to use this chance to throw some shade

    ReplyDelete
  149. Stella Sonia WidjajaMay 1, 2015 at 4:59 AM

    But it's bigbang,so it's okay for them to do anything *sarcasm

    ReplyDelete
  150. But Block B isn't so innocent either lol

    ReplyDelete
  151. Block B got so much shit from international fans and nobody said anything about BigBang's music video on the other post, ouch

    ReplyDelete
  152. but where is the bashing?

    ReplyDelete
  153. Maybe I'm biased but BlockB's one was really nasty with all that blood and girls kneeling. I watched BaeBae just once and didn't even paid attention to girls. But if it's wrong it's wrong, I'm not gonna defend them :|

    ReplyDelete
  154. hello i m guy and in fact i don't like bb new songs so you shouldn't apply your thought on me ok

    ReplyDelete
  155. How is that comfort women? LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  156. They're not my oppas, just because I don't think this is worthy of criticism doesn't mean I'm their fan. In my country artists use Victorian dress in all kinds of skits and music videos. There is never an uproar so I don't see why this should be one.

    ReplyDelete
  157. But I still dont get it why they need to use white models. Why not Koreans. Many Korean models are actually really beautiful too.

    ReplyDelete
  158. It's 19+ for a reason so... (I'm talking about the sexual references)

    ReplyDelete
  159. how old are you? i guess you need to watch some porn

  164. None of the comments say they are uncomfortable with the costumes. The comments are wondering why people AREN'T uncomfortable like the way they were with Block B.


    The reasons people aren't uncomortable are 1) BIGBANG's video is funny whereas Block B's was trashy. And 2) BIGBANG is using it's own culture while Block B used someone else's culture.

  167. Again, the problem of objectifying women.../sigh/

    But at the same time, some historical(?) korean movies have this problem too, is that a kind of tradition? IDK anyway even if it is portraying the history, can't get it why they use white model and I am not trying to defend BIGBANG since sexual objectification of women is indeed wrong after all.

  168. Then I guess Korea should scrap their film industry right? Because in their historical movies there are a lot of explicit sex scenes with hanboks involved.

  169. Black Americans include Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Tyler the Creator... their ideas are pretty fucking cool. And Gdragon etc have admitted to be inspired.

    What is with kpop fans always getting super defensive at someone pointing out kpop artists are often imitating black American artists...

    Black American ideas- jazz, hip hop, rock n roll. Absurd!

    guys don't feel regretful for us, bbc, it's okay because it doesn't change the fact that block b was wrong as well and i don't want people to ignore their wrong doings, it's bad for them, they're growing and learning from their mistakes, so it's okay to point it out..

  174. What I've seemed to notice in Kpop is that when it comes to sexual songs they use foreign mainly white women.
    When it comes to songs about relationships and love they use korean women.

  183. Honestly, i like the mv because it seems like a joke, is full of innuendos and is making a bit fun of other mvs who try to be suggestive. But i wish they didn´t use hanboks, because i knew it would be a problem as soon as i saw them. I guess at least they hadn´t have blood on them. I don´t think it is as bad as block bs case and they used them for "sexual jokes", which is okish for me but then again i didn´t grow up in korea and am pretty sure that they are not used in combination with anything sexual so i see the problem

    Good for you that you dont think this should be an uproar. But you're not korean so dont be suprised when people do get offended at the misuse of their costumes/culture.

    ReplyDelete
  185. obviously depicting the olden days when girls in hanbok entertaining rich men. duh? watch more dramas and come back

    ReplyDelete
  186. That's not it at all. The knetz are pointing out the double standards, not making excuses for why Big Bang doesn't get hate whereas Block B did.
    Big Bang gets shielded and protected because they have more fans and are more loved, but content-wise, they should be getting just as much flack for those scenes as Block B because both are degrading the value and cultural aspects of traditional female attire.

  187. have you watched frozen flower? do you know what gisaeng is and what they wear and what they purpose in life? try search about it first, dear.. its what they portrayed in this MV

  188. OMG we could get even more insane with that, tbh. "Bom had a drug scandal and BB is from the same company, how dare they come out! Petition to have them taken off the air!"


    There's a lot of hypocrisy when it comes to fans/K-entertainment. I don't see how the actions of one person in a company reflect on the actions of the rest of the people who happen to be in that same company-- they're only using Yewon and Star Empire as an excuse to complain that they didn't get the cast they wanted.

  189. The court was not able to determine that a person died as a result of a BIGBANG member's actions. So no.

  192. Well sorry I dont have enough time in this lifetime to get upset over how hanboks are depicted in a Big Bang video when they've been depicted in a sexual manner since the birth of Korea's film industry.

    ReplyDelete
  193. No need to be condescending.
    I am aware of what happens in movies and dramas. But its not me upset over it. Its the Koreans. I don't really care. I just find the double standards cute

    ReplyDelete
  194. but do people in your country still use the victorian dress for ceremonies or on important national holidays? i don't think so.. victorian dress is just a wearpiece that belongs to an era it's not a traditional dress.. while people in korean have been wearing hanboks since forever and still doing it today.. as a person who comes from a country which tries to keep its traditions alive i totally understand koreans on this

    ReplyDelete
  195. there was a eat your kimchi video(i know they aren't liked) who tried to shed some light into this issue. aparently kpop group use white girls for sexual situations because they are considered more free with their bodies then korean girls?
    or something like that
