[OMONA DISCUSSION] The sexualization of children in k-pop

Welcome to a new episode of OMONA DISCUSSION! I know, we haven't had one of these posts in ages, but to be honest I just couldn't think of a new topic. However after Eric Nam released his new song with Somi this week I couldn't stop thinking about all these under-aged teens in K-Pop and how sexualized they are. Note that this post isn't solely about the girls but also the young boys that get pressured into doing sexy moves to fulfill noonas fantasies. I'm gonna highlight (#buyCANYOUFEELIT?onitunes) only a few selected ones, of course there are plenty more.

What do you think, OMONA? Should the sexualization of teens in K-Pop be banned by law? Do you feel weird looking at children acting sexy? Discuss in the comments!

Lies, Fairytales & Fallacies

Several YG Artists To Reportedly Comeback In April In Addition To Psy, iKON, And Hyukoh

YG Entertainment may be preparing for a massive comeback this spring.

A source from the music industry stated, “YG Entertainment will be releasing music in a stream in spring, and it will most likely be concentrated in April. With Psy at the head, YG is planning to take over music charts.”

Psy previously revealed his plans to comeback in April, while Hyukoh also announced a return in spring. There have been reports that their comeback would be in March, but it seems to have been postponed to April. Also, there were reports that WINNER and iKON would make comebacks in March or April, with WINNER additionally reported to have filmed their music video in the United States.

The same source explained, “There are more artists making a comeback in April besides those already revealed. At least five or more new albums will be released.”

This reported movement from YG Entertainment is keeping other agencies vigilant.

Which YG artist are you hoping to see a comeback from?

Next time we have a tag post, I have to remember to ask for a media play tag

Daebak and his sister visit William, and seem to be really in love with babies right now. Sam Okyere also visits the kids. Bumsoo and the kids come up with a family motto for their new home. Having Jiyong and Seungjae take care of a puppy seems like a horrible idea, tbh lol.
