YG Ent using YT's copyright system to take down videos criticizing Jennie's lackluster performances

Criticism on YG and Jennie is valid, hate towards her not. Stay on the right side Omona!

Yeah, I like Exo but someone like Sehun is obviously put in as a visual/"rapper" (kind of like how Minho's position was in SHINee) and it is quite common that groups with a large amount of members just have a few where you think "how could they still be at this level?". It's not even anything against the members personally but it makes you wonder what on earth their companies are doing in that they're not improving at all with all the work they seem to be putting in, and they probably do indeed do it because boy groups can mostly get away with it (and SM groups always have that one great singer or dancer in a group to compensate for lacking members so they're smart in that regard, but when you're standing next to someone like Kai it creates a huge contrast).

I wonder if the image YG is putting out for Jennie is also not helping because yeah, she's being marketed as that queen bee Regina George type and that seems to revoke an even worse response in people because they're more likely to allow lack of skill in someone who seems innocent or less confident because then it's seen as "cute". When you think about it...even if she did nail this solo it wouldn't make her more popular with men because they don't like that type of confident woman they're pushing her to be!
