Korean TV, This Is Just Getting Ridiculous
So by now we all know about Produce 101. In case you don't, though, here's a short breakdown: There have been two seasons on MBC (one for girls, one for boys) that takes 101 trainees and puts them through tests and voting until only a certain number remain and they create a new idol group (for a short period of time, then they go back to their original companies. The channel KBS is preparing to take it to the next level. The company is preparing a show currently called "The Final 99 Match" that will take performers that have had the chance to debut, but never found success. There are plenty of idol groups (unfortuately called "nugus") that have never really succeeded. Ideally, this show is where they get a chance to join a new group and get a shot at fame. That's sort of normal and understandable, but this is where it gets absolutely ridiculous. There reportedly will be 250 BOYS AND 250 GIRLS competing. 9 of each gender will survive and be placed into groups (number of groups have not been decided) I understand that idol TV shows are getting popular, much like how American Idol in the States led to The X Factor, The Voice, America's Got Talent, etc etc etc. But 500 people?! When they've already survived the harsh kpop audition and training system to debut? That must be so heartbreaking for all of them. I'd feel less bad if they were complete rookies with zero training but dang, to already debut...its like NU'EST being in Produce 101 right now. So sad for the fans :/ I wish everyone luck and hope it changes some lives for the better but I have a feeling this competition is going to be a heart ache. What do you guys think? source
8 K-Dramas With Bittersweet Endings
Bittersweet Ending: The ending is happy but also sad at the same time! This card will contain spoilers for all the dramas mentioned! [365: Repeat the Year] Our character's do get a happy ending because they all live but at the same time it's sad. Hyeongju is successfully able to return to the past and reset which means all of our characters who previously died (killed off by our resident serial killer whom I won't name for spoiler reasons) are alive again. This includes Hyeongju's new best friend Gahyeon, however, because she did not reset as well she no longer remembers what happened in the previous reset (for those who have not seen this drama the reset is only going into the past year but only those who went through the reset remember the future they've already lived through.) So, because Gahyeon who died in the previous reset and therefore was unable to go through the reset with Hyeongju no longer remembers the process in which her and Hyeongju became friends. [Circle] In the ending of Circle we find that Woojin our main character died in the past and has been replaced by a clone. His twin brother cannot accept this at first but later comes to terms with it. So, while we do not get a happy ending for the real Woojin there is still some peace and happiness because his clone remains in his place. Sadly for Minister Park we do not get to see his character learn to move past his flaws and he dies this way. [Children of Nobody] Depending on how invested in the characters you were you could also find this drama's ending to be tragic. In this drama's ending we find out our loveable character Eunho is the serial killer we've been searching for the entire drama. The part that makes this drama's ending so bittersweet is that it's really hard to hate or dislike Eunho. He was abused as a child and still holds a child-like mentality but because of all that he has endured he's took it upon himself to kill those who abuse children because he was abused himself. Sadly he is shot to death by our main lead Jihyun because Eunho was trying to kill our female lead Wookyung whom had been in an abusive childhood home herself. Eunho was stuck in an unhealthy mentality thinking that in order to be happy she needed to die, almost like he was doing her a service by killing her. Though in the end we do see the serial killer being caught we also lose Lee Eunho, someone who while yes is a murderer is also someone very innocent. Eunho also was never given the proper treatment he needed, I think had someone tried to help him long before he reached his breaking point he could've been saved. [Duel] Again like above it kind of depends on how invested you were in the characters. I know a lot of people favored Sunghoon over Sungjoon. (For those who did not watch this drama here is a little back story: Sunghoon and Sungjoon are twin clones of a doctor who died in the past named Dr. Yongseop. Sungjoon is the good clone, while Sunghoon was the bad one of the two.) In our bittersweet ending we sadly have to say goodbye to Sunghoon, whom was bad the entire series but in the end he was bad for a good reason (like Eunho above) though this doesn't necessarily give him a pass to kill people. Unlike Eunho who didn't get the chance to, Sunghoon rights his wrong by killing the main bad guy which helps Sungjoon and the others out tremendously. It was sad that Sunghoon had to die to get us a happy ending though! [Extracurricular] There are three different possible endings to Extracurricular and each one of them leaves you with a bittersweet taste in your mouth. First we will start with Ending #1, at the end of the drama after being stabbed by Kitae, Jisoo and Gyuri rush off to the stairwell where Jisoo falls and tells Gyuri she should go on without him, however Gyuri does not want to leave him. In the first ending scenario when the female officer finds the spot in the stairwell where Jisoo and Gyuri were neither of them were there. This ending alludes to both Jisoo and Gyuri living and avoiding jail. Which means that yes they do both live and escape but they do not pay for the crimes in which they've committed. So, while being probably the most favored ending it still leaves you with the sadness that they will always have to be on the run and will probably never have a normal life. Ending #2, the female officer arrives in the stairwell only to find Jisoo there, meaning that Jisoo decided to turn himself in but Gyuri decided against this and left him there. This ending while partially being happy is still sad because Gyuri's character did not grow, she did not stick with Jisoo, she remained all about herself and did not pay for the crimes she committed unlike Jisoo would. Ending #3, the female officer arrives and both Jisoo and Gyuri remain. While this is also not an entirely happy ending since the both of them would be headed to jail, they are still paying for their crimes and may some day be released from jail to live a better life. [Extraordinary You] In this drama our main leads get to meet again as extra characters in a new manhwa and are able to remember what happened in the previous manhwa. However, us as viewers are left with a bittersweet feeling knowing that our main couple will forever be stuck in a repeating cycle of manhwas and in future manhwas risk the chance of not being drawn by the writer or erased entirely. [Remember: War of the Son] Our main leads do not get a happy ending as a couple because our male lead suffers from Alzheimer's. But his father is cleared of his crime and the real killer is behind bars so nonetheless the ending we are given is still a happy one. [Reunited Worlds] In this drama our male lead Haesung is given a second chance to live and appears before his family and Jungwon, the girl he loves once again however, he's still stuck in his teenage body while everyone else has aged 12 years. Thoroughout the drama we slowly realize that Haesung is disappearing again but he's brought his estranged family back together again. Though we lost our male lead again we can rest assured that his family and Jungwon are in good hands now.

I Can't Deal With Fandoms {The 5th GAON Chart Kpop Awards'}
So I'm just making this card for the people who missed this award show, I started watching it at 6:00am for me. Somehow my body knew this award show was on and woke me up. I catched the last half of the performances but I couldn't help but be disgusted by the live chat beside the video. There was so much negativity, I literally couldn't even bear to look at the chat. But before I get into that, I want to show you guys who performed and what rewards they received. B.A.P "Wild, Young & Free" First of all the intro was so good I almost fell out of my bed. So B.A.P of course performed this song and killed it. They all looked good esepecially Youngjae's contacts and Himchan's hair. They won the "Hot Trend Of The Year" award along with Baek Ah Yeon. Red Velvet "Automatic" and "Ice Cream Cake" I'm so glad Red Velvet performed both of these songs because they are both of my favorite songs by them besides "Dumb Dumb". They did a great job with the performance. They won the "Hot Performance Of They Year"award. Zion.T "Yanghwa Bridge" I'm so glad he performed this song because I can't get enough of it, it is so good. His voice is just perfect both live and recorded, you can't even tell the difference. He won the "Discovery Of The Year R&B Award". Mad Clown "Fire" and "Sour Grapes" He won the "Artist of Year" during January. AOA Cream "Heart Attack" and "I'm Jelly Bean" They won the "World Rookie Of They Year Award" *this is the time where I started watching* IKON "My Type" and "Dumb And Dumber" Aside from the 15 dabs Bobby did in this live performance this performance was alright. The background music was a little to fast for them and they struggled to catch up but they did good overall. They won the "Artist of The Year" for September and "New Artist Of The Year" along with GFriend. SEVENTEEN "Mansae" and "Shining Diamond" Seventeen surprise me with this performance, it was unique they way they introduce themselves and really worked for them. They won the "World Rookie Of The Year" along with AOA. Taeyon "I" My girl Taeyeon did great with this performance and it was so beautiful too. She won the "Artist Of The Year" for October Zico "Boys And Girls" Of course this bias wrecker had to perform as well and "Boys And Girls" are one of my favoirite songs by him. He won the "Artist Of The Year" for November Vixx "Chained Up" I got so happy when I saw N's sassines in this live performance. The remix of this song is always good and Ravi just destroyed my life like always. His shirt didn't come off in this performance which is kind of bittersweet but thier performance was still great. Which might explained why they won the "Hot Performance Award of The Year". This is where the fandoms wars start to erupt in the live chat, So in each block will be some comments other fans said about their group or other groups....WARNING YOU MAY GET MAD AT SOME OF THESE COMMENTS!! BTS "I Need You" and "Dope" BTS killed their performance and they look so good in their classy suits. They won the "K-Pop World Hallyu Star Award". I was partially glad when BTS performed because I thought that would stop the wave of BTS comments but instead it made it worse with fans saying "That wasn't long enough", "BTS needed more time", and they also made insulted the other performers as well. I got so tired of seeing BTS in the comment section that I just started to ignore the live chat. EXO "Exodus", "Call Me Baby" and "Love Me Right" EXO left a path of destruction that killed me and my ears. It was so good although I think they could've had better mics because we could barely hear them. They won the "Artist Of The Year(album)" for the first, second and fourth quarter and the "Fan Vote Popularity Award". Sehun also recieved the award "Weibo Star Award". Now EXO fans were totally inappropriate with comments like... -"This is boring, Big Bang is winning all the awards" -"They(Big Bang) look like beggers on stage." And many others that were horrible. Big Bang "Bae Bae", "Bang Bang Bang" and "We Like 2 Party" Big Bang killed it but is that really something new...They all look so good and happy and of course Seungri had to do another Sehun moment with a member of Super Junior. I'm so glad they were enjoying themselves. They won the "Artist Of The Year" for May, June, July and August. They also won the "YinYueTai Most Influential Group in Asia Award". But the sad part about this is that their fans in the live chat were arguing with other people. They were the worst in the live chat. Comments included stuff like.... -"Exo has no quality on their work" -"Exo rappers can't rap worth nothing" -They even said that EXO had the worst live performance. Again this is not all the negative comments I saw in the chat. Besides the negative comments that I saw during the show everything was awesome and I will continue to watch this award show the next time it comes on.
