honestly i've researched both sides of the "boycott pledis' youtube account" argument and understand where everyone's coming from, but i think it's only hurting the boys in the long run. the youtube downvotes especially are nagl.
the song is still growing on me but i love the dark concept and mv. everyone looks great, jeonghan's closeups especially killed me.

Yeah ia with the first bit, Pledis' shittiness needs to be dealt with but boycotting and taking it out on Pledis' Seventeen uploads just sounds incredibly unproductive to me

That’s kinda how I felt about it...I wonder if views count more from YouTube or vlive... if I was sure it wasn’t gonna affect seventeen I’d be down for it

whats the boycott about? I'm a casual fan (casual carat, lol)so I have no idea and stan twitter is too scary and confusing for me to brave looking

The boycott is about three things:
- Pledis not effectively dealing with sasaengs (there was an incident that blew up one or two weeks ago) and not giving adequate feedback on how they will deal with this issue in the future (seventeen has been having trouble with rule-breaking fansites and sasaengs and Pledis usually only gives lipservice when fans ask about it)
- Staff leaking out info about the boys whereabouts on social media, which gets used by sasaengs
- Pledis suddenly deciding to upload Seventeen MVs on the Pledis YT channel that has a significantly smaller subscriber number (600K i think) compared to the 3 mio SVT has. (I'm not sure if they plan to completely merge the channels).
Somehow the whole thing got twisted in the english-speaking kpop circles that it is only about the Youtube channel, when that was the last (admittedly big) drop in the bucket.
