Since things are kinda quiet rn thought this would be fun. What "THaT's mY OPNION111!" thoughts do you have.

Hot Take: Monsta X's rap line is the best and most versatile of current active groups, even in spite of the cringe lyrics. RBB was one of the best gg concepts in the past few years.

Very Mild Take: Top Group xx is overrated/Nugu group xx is underrated.

This is meant as some lighthearted fun...please don't take it too seriously. If you're likely to lurk and get your feelings hurt maybe skip this one.

I read the title and thought this was going to be a callout post with vintage (and awful) posts from still-active subscribers so I'm almost disappointed lmao

hot take: zico is no longer the most talented or charismatic member of block b. he got a headstart on the others due to his past but nowadays i honestly prefer what p.o's put out and kyung/the bastarz members are better performers

i feel like if we went into specific member call outs omona would cease to exist. I like this place enough to not go down that road lol
vintage_boom 24th-Feb-2019 10:25 pm (UTC)
which mod loves a potential garbage fire as much as me lmao <3?!

more since I started this and love roasting my own faves:

[This is why i stay off reddit]NCT - Jaehyun should have debuted as a member of rap line. His rap delivery and tone is better than some of the other rappers.

NCT - 7th Sense was the best debut songs for a bg in the past 5 years.

EXO - SM fucked up releasing Lucky One and Monster as a double title. They should have held on to Monster for the fall repackage.

EXO - As the season of their variety show goes on the lower chanyeol falls on my faves list. something about how he is in this is so off-putting.

CUBE - Cube chose money from P101 over the guaranteed success of PTG by giving up Energetic. that song is bigger than the artist and would have pushed them out of middle ground territory...especially then followed up by SHINE. However, they were right to give La Vie En Rose up because that comeback would have only been popular because it was a P101.

CUBE - Hui could easily be a huge solo star but CUBE won't debut him (or Kino). Instead they'll push Guanlin even though his rapping is just Wooseok cosplay. :S their subunits gonna be one long monotonous drone of a song. (yes I'm a bitter triple H fan I know this)


3rd gen groups being more performance and dance lead is disappointing because it's at the expense of casting and training great vocalists.

Dreamcatcher - the linkin park of kpop (that's a compliment). I'm waiting for them to cover numb.

MX - I said what I said.

LOONA: I like LOONA more when they were a rumoured front for arms dealers however I'm still curious about what their next round of subunit releases will be like.

TWICE - Chaeyoung shows exactly what badgirl/cutesy dual concepts should look like. I wish she got more credit.

jaehyun, doyoung, and taeil starting off run back 2 u!!! 🔥🔥🔥is top tier for any rap moment in nct except lucas' boss verse and a couple of mark parts. honestly i don't think taeyong does much w rapping... and i think jaehyun's vocal tone is very important to diversifying the group but it's funny cuz he's so confident and good at everything and then he sings live and it's like the undercurrent of insecurity... i don't have music theory knowledge but ppl say he's not singing in his range and i'm like oh i definitely feel that

hot takes:

*Super Junior should be stripped of all their wins and have those given to Nine Muses
* Banas should literally be sued for demolishing Dal Shabet's entire career
* BESTie deserved all of KNK's 2016 comebacks - ALL OF THEM

existingisfunny 24th-Feb-2019 10:29 pm (UTC)
ooh! inner company takes

monsta x becoming big when cosmic girls deserves that too is wack
existingisfunny 24th-Feb-2019 10:26 pm (UTC)
oooh, an indulgence...

people that think bts or loona are better bc they've created these vast universes when some of us are fine with just good music and don't care about the multiple storylines, colors, animals, zodiac signs, periodic table of elements, etc. that goes into making them. idg how that makes a group better but ok

thebloomroom 24th-Feb-2019 10:31 pm (UTC)
I don’t follow Loona but BTS’s convoluted storyline thing made it harder for me when I was trying to get into them, like I also dgaf about any of that lmao. Serve me bops, they don’t need to all be connected in some fake deep way.
pikapika217 24th-Feb-2019 10:30 pm (UTC)
mild takes -

*We deserve another Hi Suhyun comeback
*YG deserves the ruin that will come to him once all his boy groups are gone & that treasure double group shit sounds dumb as hell

frequency 24th-Feb-2019 11:25 pm (UTC)
i would do anything for a hi suhyun comeback.
pikapika217 24th-Feb-2019 10:33 pm (UTC)
Hot take - I'm REALLY sick of people forgetting that Wonder Girls essentially popularized the modern girl group structure for their generation and the next one. The hook song came back due to them and you damn well know we wouldn't have the 'several vocalists/one rapper' shake-out without their success with it. They are GLOBALLY iconic, still love each other & deserve to be more revered.
existingisfunny 24th-Feb-2019 10:37 pm (UTC)
on the subject of erased icons, KARA'S IMPACT AND ESPECIALLY IN JAPAN? it pains me to see them be forgotten
siaht 24th-Feb-2019 10:36 pm (UTC)
K-Pop stopped being good in 2012.
existingisfunny 24th-Feb-2019 10:37 pm (UTC)
i won't say it stopped being good but something similar-

kpop stopped being kpop in 2013
vintage_boom 24th-Feb-2019 10:37 pm (UTC)
BigHit - Purposefully went after a certain concept with TXT to bury the newly debuted groups from 4 smaller agencies.
pikapika217 24th-Feb-2019 10:43 pm (UTC)
TXT is adorable but in that 'new happy puppy' way because they're so youthful. I'm ready for the music previews TBQH. I'm just curious as to what their sound will be - I'd gag if they were, like, an all vocal group and did a gugudan style acapella preview.
belintuchiha 24th-Feb-2019 10:45 pm (UTC)

Dreamcatcher are underrated AF and so are BEG. Tired of people ignoring awesome women. That’s it. Lmao

benihime99 25th-Feb-2019 06:32 am (UTC)
That's a FACT!!!!!!
existingisfunny 24th-Feb-2019 10:45 pm (UTC)
i can't deal w ateez fans whining about them being underrated when they're clearly a rookie fave right now and are about to have a north american tour when we have 400 groups that never even made it out of korea

same thing with orbits complaining about loona not getting attention when they're everywhere online. but i'm the jaded fan that's watched 40 nugus disband that would consider anything ateez/loona/other groups like them get, a god damn blessing

ppl would stan astro if they had 4 filler members like any other boy group
thebloomroom 24th-Feb-2019 10:49 pm (UTC)
Ateez arent underrated at all lol, they have a ton of attention for a group that only debuted like 5 months ago!!!
existingisfunny 24th-Feb-2019 10:47 pm (UTC)
a girl like me - gugudan is one of the best singles of the last 5 years, i still have no idea why it flopped
pikapika217 24th-Feb-2019 11:19 pm (UTC)
ugh, it DESERVED THE WORLD! And maybe like 30 more seconds of run time?

Gugudan is so damn talented
dallinferno 24th-Feb-2019 10:51 pm (UTC)
these are really meek hot takes but

i think momo is very far from being the best female kpop dancer of this generation as fans always say. i think she's just okay

another hot take (?) is that bts jin is the second best singer in the group (he's usually placed much lower)

and hmm ... nct mark is the best male rapper sm has at the moment. also yuta deserves even more singing lines and center parts, he's improved so much.

i don't like that kuanlin is in cube's new unit, i don't think he's a particularly good rapper and he has next to no stage presence. he really hasn't improved that much during his wanna one days

i wish i could come up with more but it's almost my time to sleep so my brain is at like 50% capacity atm pffffffff
donaldjdrumpf 25th-Feb-2019 02:01 am (UTC)
Mark is Sm's best rapper but almost by default, no? I feel like he has no serious competition for that title. I think Chanyeol is OK, Taeyong is better as a vocalist but i love his stupid vocal fry, and Sehun is so awfule he could be in Got7's rap line (although he at least delivers iconic so-bad-they're-good bars).
existingisfunny 24th-Feb-2019 10:55 pm (UTC)
people going civil rights march levels for winwin when it's like........once again the amount of groups that flop out, it's so hard for me to sympathize that he's in one successful unit instead of another successful unit?? like i /get it/ but i'll pick other battles
vintage_boom 24th-Feb-2019 10:59 pm (UTC)
I left this off my list but yea. the boy's tone deaf. let him be pretty and dance too fluidly for NCT's choreo. he's been doing fine so far. the amount of outrage when he's making $$$ just because he's left off a poster for something he isn't even promoting is ??
dior_chic 24th-Feb-2019 10:56 pm (UTC)
Hot take - in Monsta X’s Shoot Out I keep hearing the word Wakka....

And then I think of FFX’s Wakka...so now the song is even better

(I’ll have real opinions soon I just had to share this)
froggster 24th-Feb-2019 11:08 pm (UTC)
I just hear pac-man
dior_chic 24th-Feb-2019 10:58 pm (UTC)
I need a group to really do the Astrology concept right. It has so much damn potential. Cosmic Girls let me down in that regard

Also on the topic of Cosmic Girls, they’re a group where I like the music content more than the group itself. Yeonjung is the only one I care much about

yes, they actually have one of my favorite discographies but i haven't gotten them into much as people but eunseo, dayoung, and yeoreum are my favd
