Lol well THAT's a headline

Kings of north american basic cable news shows!

No but seriously, I can't watch this. The cringefest that is news network anchors talking about "the kpop" just hurts my feelings and judging from the title of this post it doesn't end well if they are referring to them as a north korean act.
mmmmmatthew 11th-Aug-2017 07:30 pm (UTC)
ugh, I was right. They even bringing up old shit with the lawsuits. And I hate when they compare kpop artist to western pop groups because they could never. Like Nsync sunbaenim only lasted like 3 years.

nsync sunbaenim ctfu

"Nsync sunbaenim"

normanikordei 11th-Aug-2017 08:13 pm (UTC)
lmao I'm dying @ every aspect of this. north korean sensations, the reference to chinaline suing SM, comparing SM to LOU PEARLMAN

but on the other hand I love kokobop becoming a viral hit and SM needs to hop on this while it's hot but lbr they won't. exo-L's are the only ones who promote exo lmfao

That thumbnail is enough cringe for me, I can't press play.
cassieopia926 12th-Aug-2017 02:14 am (UTC)
I feel the same way!

Americans are sf dumb and condescending towards other cultures, but it especially irritates me when people confuse North and South Korea over things like this. Ya'll know NK is a dictatorship that hates Western culture. You really think they'd produce a modern pop group that's marketed worldwide, including on social media sites that were founded by Westerners? It's common fucking sense even if you know the bare minimum about NK.

Ofc the fact they're professional reporters make it even worse. Esp bc if you type Exo into Google, a blurb comes up saying they are a South Korean group. You don't even have to click on a link to obtain this information. It's almost like they couldn't give a shit if they reported actual facts or not.

Omg I never saw your dp before & took me a while to realize it's a tiny frog leaping.
krissasaur 12th-Aug-2017 04:59 am (UTC)
I always think its a euphemism for someone jacking off or something like a water gun or ... like something else thats squirting and I am always surprised when I realized it's a frog. This has happened like.... 30 times lmao.
lil_poisonfrog 12th-Aug-2017 04:53 pm (UTC)
LMAO WHAT hahahahaha does it really look like that??!! Maybe I should change it then...it's actually Rap Mon flicking a tiny frog off his hand from a BTS twitter update! I would've included frames of the frog sitting on his hand, but off course I had to edit it to hell and back to get it under 40 kb
krissasaur 12th-Aug-2017 05:53 pm (UTC)
I'M SORRY! I am so used to seeing people have sexually suggestive "innocent" icons on OMONA and ONTD that my brain just defaults. Specially when you comment on anything that could be seen as risque lmao.

I gave it a go with a border so you can see the hand more/ more frames if interested! IDK IF IT HELPS WHAT MY BRAIN TRIES TO SEE AT ALL THOUGH. (I am not even a perv lmao)

Omg, you didn't have to go through all that effort! Thank you!
lil_poisonfrog 12th-Aug-2017 04:54 pm (UTC)
Yeah it's Rapmon flicking a tiny frog off of his hand! Thought it'd be cool for my icon to relate both to my username and K-pop lol
edanz_castle 11th-Aug-2017 11:36 pm (UTC)
But it was only a small mistake? She even corrected herself. Its not that big of a deal.
lil_poisonfrog 12th-Aug-2017 04:58 pm (UTC)
*wipes egg off face* Well oop @ me! I'll admit I didn't even get to the part in the video where she said NK bc her corniness was giving me severe cringe, so I didn't realize she corrected herself.

But even if not applicable here, I think my point still stands...I've definitely seen people ask if K-pop groups are from SK or NK before, and it blows my mind that someone can know so little about both countries that the huge cultural differences don't make stuff like that obvious.

Funny story though, one time I was talking about Kpop in one of my classes (at Sacramento State lulz) and someone said "North Korea or South Korea?"

my country once compared soshi's mv to detergent commercials, sit down.

bob_dabuilda 11th-Aug-2017 11:02 pm (UTC)
Why don't you like the performance? Besides, you know, the fact that Lay is wearing a shirt that has my hometown on it to solidify our relationship?
goshipgurl 11th-Aug-2017 11:17 pm (UTC)
i just get second-hand embarrassment watching it
bob_dabuilda 12th-Aug-2017 04:13 am (UTC)
...is it the singing, the dancing, or stage presence?
dothecrunge 12th-Aug-2017 05:09 am (UTC)

How old is this?
goshipgurl 12th-Aug-2017 12:38 am (UTC)
Looks like its from the 80s but since its from north Korea it could be from the 00s too
goshipgurl 11th-Aug-2017 10:19 pm (UTC)
also this showed up on my youtube front page a few days ago
mjspice 11th-Aug-2017 11:30 pm (UTC)
Omfg This was so embarrassing to watch with majority of them pointing to North America or the Middle East. & only the bearded guy was close enough smh.
frequency 12th-Aug-2017 12:21 am (UTC)
lmao this is embarrassing. reminds me of a video years ago where north americans couldn't point out north america on a map.
krissasaur 12th-Aug-2017 05:04 am (UTC)
............ why do i remain alive.
mjspice 11th-Aug-2017 11:25 pm (UTC)

Sacramento has always been embarrassing so...
Im not gonna watch the video. I'm already too through with this challenge itself but I'll let the kids have fun
bob_dabuilda 12th-Aug-2017 04:00 am (UTC)

YOU TAKE THAT BACK!

Unless you mean Good Day Sacramento, and not the city itself. Then you're fine.
