I'm so jaded I can't be like 'yay women', I'm like 'but so much of the money goes back to [shitty ass] men (the producers and execs, etc), especially in BP's case'. :P

Anyway, *waves flag for Twice*

Twice :)))) Always proud of my girls, plus seeing Fancy doing well as they had some progression in their concept, makes me hopeful that Twice will continue to grow from this point

Congrats to IZ*ONE! Violeta really won me over and Heart*Iz has so many great songs, I was pleasantly surprised. It feels like I haven’t heard international fans talk about it much, which is a shame since it’s a quality album

Twice is killing it

im so happy izone is succeeding after some of you uglies kept coming for sakura lol the true center won in the end!

sakura lol the true center

Ok seriously tho...Wonyoung is cute but leaves no impression on me 🤷‍♀️
ramenhime 30th-Apr-2019 04:26 pm (UTC)
yeah wonyoung deserved her spot but sakura just naturally glows and steals the spotlight
lil_poisonfrog 30th-Apr-2019 04:37 pm (UTC)
As someone who doesn't watch Produce...how badly do you think they fuck with the votes? On the one hand, I could totally see enough creeps voting for a 14 yo that she'd get the top spot, but could also see Mnet rigging it to ensure a Japanese girl doesn't get it. Same goes for ensuring only 3 of the 48 girls made the final cut
ramenhime 30th-Apr-2019 04:55 pm (UTC)
oh they for sure rig it to get some of the girls in. initially i thought that was the case with wonyoung but apparently she's pretty popular with female fans in korea too ? which is a huge relief because i do NOT like the thought of grown men voting for a 13 year old girl to be center! i still think they rigged it a bit in her favor because they did not want Sakura as center. their album sales are so high because of sakura's akgae fans. i also think Jo Yuri was FOR SURE rigged to get into the group, without her there wouldn't be a "power vocal" but she literally jumped to third place in the finale even though she was barely near the top 12 in the previous episodes. the group is mainly visuals, and they only allowed their 3 token japanese girls to make it in. there were other akb48 girls who garnered a big following throughout the show and were constantly getting high or higher places, only for none of them to make it close in the finale.

edit: for reference someone else posted this in the comments of the shows finale

Yuri 213,237 294,734 28% increase
Yena 215,828 285,385 24% increase
Wonyoung 277,922 (-20,000) 338,366 24% increase
Anhyu 238,959 280,487 15% increase
Chaewon 210,781 238,192 11.5% increase
Sakura 373,378 316,105 -18% decrease
Kaeun 307,723 209,252 -47% decrease
Chaeyeon 327,445 221,273 -48% decrease
Miru 268,609 (-50000) 129,113 -69% decrease
Myao 347,998 184,765 -88% decrease
Miyu 303,379 158,052 -92% decrease
Miu 261,023 129,113 -102% decrease

the last 4 were akb girls and all of this was just in a span of a week. how did those girls lose so much votes/popularity??? RIGGEREY also poor kaeun

I will never stop being bitter about how they treated Myao and Miyu.

Jurina was the real winner tbh
rosiemotleymind 30th-Apr-2019 07:11 pm (UTC)
Sakura is literally so charismatic. I will never get over her La Vie En Rose fancams
lil_poisonfrog 30th-Apr-2019 04:02 pm (UTC)
I'm honestly really surprised about BP. Just last year it seemed like they sold around the same as RV and Mamamoo. But congrats to them

What's your fave songs from these minis? Mine are Up, Don't Know What to Do, Hot, and Girls Like Us.
katheli 30th-Apr-2019 04:05 pm (UTC)
BP sold around the same on hanteo last year as twice and iz*one too. It's only a higher amount this time, but still very close numbers for the three. (on hanteo anyway).
lil_poisonfrog 30th-Apr-2019 04:25 pm (UTC)
Oh ok I was thinking of this Gaon ranking which showed Twice far above the rest at the end of 2018. I think this combines all of each group's releases together tho and since BP only had one mini in 2018, there's no way they'd be close

I didn’t/couldn’t finish Produce 48 but lol at izone being the only group from produce to have music I actually enjoy.

Love seeing girl groups do well <3
kimbafierce 30th-Apr-2019 08:44 pm (UTC)
The only boy group I care about

Congratulations!!! They are really really amazing! To this day, they make me smile when they perform on stage. The energy is amazing! I used to not really enjoy their stages but something changed that and I'm so happy to have found that love for them.
