It's probably what they sell in the SM Ent store too, your can see some in the Joon Park YT video where he visits YG and SM.. maybe it's stuff that doesn't sell and is filling up their storage room. :p

Killing Me
Goodbye Road
And now I'm Ok

Are all songs clearly trying to capture the spark that love scenario had.


Ikon went from a wide array of sounds and topics for their title tracks to it all being "no hard feelings" break up songs

Feels like her single for The Player didn't even appear on the radar, liked it even more than this one.

I like it more is due to her vocals. I seriously don't like how SM is promoting her, Yes I do enjoy her new songs but SM couldn't have added some vocals and high notes to them for her?

I'm letdown by Luna's new song. They should've gave her another track like "Free Somebody".
Both Even So and Night Reminiscin are songs Luna self-composed. I would also love another Free Somebody but this seems to be the music she wants to make at the moment.

I can respect that. It's just not my cup of tea and it seems like she'd get more attention with a "bop" and dance heavy visual instead of ballads.

Oh sure, I'm not surprised that she's aware of that turn of phrase but I do find it pretty funny that she would tweet that for all to see, especially when MBK presumably(?) has no idea what she's talking about.

TFW even idols refer to their own agency as the dungeon.
Shannons been known for criticizing her company and she should be allowed to for how long they let kept her in the dungeon despite her KStar(?) push some time ago. Don't worry, they know what she's talkin about. It's not like they are gonna let her release another single till contract termination.

Kim Sohee and Minju got some time to shine now at least.

Condescending? What a serious accusation which you have to give a proof how it is condescending question. For the second question, why not google? It's because someone else came with that notion first, so i entered the notion by asking the op via reply.

Your google argument could work if in this case out of nowhere without wind and without storm i suddenly came into the thread and then made a question "who is shannon?", in this case you could say, "Why you dont just google?"


Tldr. My reply of who is shannon is actually a reply to the op, whether it is in the form of question or statement, both are okay. In this case google argument cannot work on me. But it works if i were the op asking "who's shannon?"

I hope my lecture is comprehensible

Now your turn: prove it to me how my question is condescending?

I mean... She is a kpop singer? Like, what answer were you expecting to that question? It's actually in her bio too.

It came as condescending, even if it wasn't your intention.

I assumed she is a group idol member because the other said she is from UK. And mostly foreigners as active singers in sk are mostly in group

BP also has a track that's in a lot of spotify major radio playlists.

You can't really compare the two. Winner and Ikon outsell BP in Korean and Japanese concerts.

They're in no way gonna bomb, but Boy groups and Girl Groups are playing on two different levels concert wise with very few exceptions

Hope I can get tickets this time. Waited for sales to go live for Redmare and tried to click seats. Every time I did, it said the seat was already taken even tho I literally watched it countdown to live.

Edit: Also, what's the possibility they'll go to Seattle? If they do, I can stay with a friend there and save on hotel costs.
