1. [+163, -7] TV's no fun to watch these days, and I'm sure it's doubly so for the younger generation. All the fun stuff is in the cellphones, after all... I think that's why trot is booming right now, because TV shows are trying to cater to the older audience. The TV channels are all going to flop if they keep this up~

2. [+128, -13] I'm so sick and tired of trot, every single channel plays nothing but trot. It's like we're a nation crazed for trot. I can't stand it.

3. [+84, -3] When 'Superstar K' came out, all the channels came out with their own audition shows, when 'Show Me the Money' came out and hip hop started trending, all sorts of rappers and new hip hop shows came out, and now it's trot... It's like these TV shows only care about boring their viewers to death with the same things over and over.

4. [+73, -28] I'm so sick of trot

5. [+43, -9] Why blame the broadcast channels for following the pathetic tastes of the public?

6. [+29, -1] Tired of trot shows singing the same songs, tired of all the idols, tired of all the cooking shows, tired of shows about celebrity children, tired of shows about celebrity lifestyles. There's nothing to watch and I'm better off picking and choosing from YouTube for the sake of my mental health.

7. [+21, -1] So tired of trot, I just change the channel

8. [+17, -2] The thing about our culture is that once this one thing is popular, everyone only cares about that one thing... R&B, rap...
