Watched some clips of the Coachella performance and the girls looked like they were doing great. Speaking of solo performances, I watched a fancam of Jisoo doing a cover of Clarity and she killed it. I hope when they get to her solo they give her something that will let her belt and show off her voice.

So, at BPs concert dates, will they only play an hour or so? They pretty much played all their songs in the hour at Coachella and that was with a couple of rest breaks cause that desert heat and all....

The reviews I've read were all positive so hopefully they will do more US dates in the future.. I only discovered K-Pop a few years ago and BP was the first group I've seen go from "thats a cool new group" to superstardom, so this type of reaction is awesome...

In their concerts they do covers and have solo stages too. Before this album the encore performances were repeated songs too, but I'm hoping they don't do these anymore since they have new songs now.

Even then, they are seriously lacking in repertoire. The ballad moment in Coachella last night was pretty painfully out of place too.

I wouldn’t be surprised if their regular shows have about the same number of songs (plus maybe a solo cover or two), but even more band/video/talking breaks—for rest and outfit changes. That final stretch last night looked grueling! I’m guessing they were on a tight schedule.

EVERGLOW’s Bon Bon Chocolat is Brazil’s #1 Viral song on Spotify right now. I’m thoroughly gagged.

It's #2 on the global Viral top 50. Kind of out of nowhere? Or did something happened?
I have no idea whatsoever, haven't heard anyone mentioning it in Brazil other than a friend sharing the charts on Instagram claiming that it was weird to see k-pop hitting #1 in Brazil. I wonder if it's Yuehua buying listeners like someone mentioned them buying views on YouTube.

Me too, and 4minute, which is way I don’t really mess with Hyuna anymore cause when all that went down she barely acknowledged it on instagram like the other members did, and they all unfollowed her at the same time, which couldn’t have been a coordinated effort on their part, so I think she blocked all of them. There was a Onehallyu thread that explained it all. It’s clear that they felt betrayed by her in the beginning.
Feeling betrayed != Being betrayed

It's business, idols get thrown under the bus more often than not. Don't get blinded by the most successful ones.

That's why I said "felt". And yeah it's business, but most fans don't care about that cause a lot of these groups pretend to be best friends so it sucks when stuff like that happens. At least there are groups like Rainbow who are actually pretty "ride or die".

I read an interview years ago where Hyuna said she preferred being in a group over being solo. Which felt like a lie afterwards because--why not fight to keep them together? It's now clear that sticking with CUBE was the wrong choice cause they kicked her out for some dumb shit after everything she did for them.

But it is all business, I get that. The fans will still feel some kind of way, though lol.

It's gonna be interesting to see how different Fancy truly is to their previous releases. And personally I already feel like the change to a more mature vibe already started with Dance The Night Away and Yes Or Yes, those songs and everything around it definitely weren't as cute as the releases before that in my opinion.

Eh? DTNA and YoY were reversions back to cute stuff after the babysteps they took away from it with Signal and Likey.

Edit: to clarify, continuations of Heartshaker's post Signal/Likey reversion.

More Taengoo!


Gave BTS' new album a few more listens, and I really dig Home and Dionysus. The latter goes hard and should be very fun live.

not a pickup from Korea, but I got these over the weekend from local kpop shop (Kpop Republic)



gotta love that store pickup option!

Heize is real dope! I think I'd like to try to pick up all her albums.



Never Mind!!!

I already paid $100 for a copy of Max and Match,

trying to get copies of Sunmi's Full Moon or Gashina single, EXID's Hippity Hop, anything from Ha:tfelt...

when did so many physical kpop records get so out of print, rare, and expensive?!?!

Somin is stunning in this. DSP should go a step furter and give us solo versions.

But how many of these are "real views"? Aren't there like tens of thousands of "fans" who use browser scripts/bots and repeat the video for 24hours straight, for days/weeks? There are even threads of kpop boards on how to use the bots/scripts most efficiently. Not sure if this is the right way to go...
Yeah, MV views are becoming less and less relevant with the way people abuse the systems. Seems like a fandom dick measurment contest.

YouTube is supposed to filter those out, they even removed like a massive 10mil from BTS' recent M/V, that shit was trending worldwide.

Take thea views from the 5th day and divide it through 1/20-1/50 and you get the right amount.

I agree, I also find it a bit cringy that all those fans feel proud of their achievements later on "most viewed song in 24hours", when so much of it is fake and artificial. While I love Kpop myself, some things of everything around it, like this is a bit creepy, its like a cult.

I finally finished the new BTS album....

While the title song is a 7/10, all other songs are FILLER.

Are people really letting them get away with this after that long break?

Hwasa's Twit was being played at my local H&M today. Not the kpop artist I thought would be the first one I heard played in Sweden. But I love Hwasa so all good with me!
