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.

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.

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.

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.

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?"
