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.

Why Don't Idol Groups Work In America?
In Japan and Korea, idols are a huge deal. The fandoms surrounding idols and idol groups are massive, with a ton of merch, lingo, events, etc surrounding the entertainers. So why isn't that happening in America? The UK tried it out with One Direction and we have a few girl groups like Fifth Harmony and Little Mix, but for the most part the classic pop group ensemble faded away in the early 2000s. Here are a few reasons why it might not work: I'm not saying either opinion is correct - just stating how the general public views celebrities in America vs Korea/Japan. I'm not an expert on either so please share your opinions as well! 1. The Concept of Being An Idol Sure, celebrities in the US know that they are role models, but do they really take this as their job?! In Japan and Korea, a single slip up can mean public humiliation (such as when an AKB48 member had a boyfriend - she had to shave her head as an apology) while in America celebrities insist on their personal rights to do whatever they want. In their opinion, just because you're a celebrity doesn't mean you aren't allowed a personal life. They should be able to be in the lime light but also have a lot of personal life that shouldn't be judged by the public, In Japan/Korea, every aspect of an entertainers life is analyzed and people know that is just part of the job. You must be a model citizen at all times and any bad behaviour (whether its on or off camera) is bad for your company, your career, and your fans. 2. Company Loyalty In America, we know the big companies like Warner, Sony, etc, but we rarely pay attention to what label each artist is on. And even if they're on the same label they don't really work together so its hard for fans to be loyal to one company. The closest I think we can get to that is waaay back with Motown Records or more recently the bands that came out on Fueled By Ramen. Smaller hip hop labels still keep this group style too! We could actually see the connection the artists had on those labels and could support the label as well as the artists. Now in Korea, we all know that companies are a big deal. YG Family, JYP, Cube, SM, etc. They do things together like concerts, Christmas songs, etc. We are able to anticipate the company's new project or collaboration. It's easier for the fans to get hyped over multiple groups at once. 3. Pre-Packaged In America, bands are usually put together by the band members. Whether they start in a garage or they put up flyers to find members, it is the band that forms first, then the label that signs them. In Korea and Japan however, we have a TON of trainees all hoping to be perfectly placed in a group. Think of the show Produce! Perfect example of prepackaging :) One Direction is an example of that happening where the boys were somewhat put together by a label, but musical and personality differences got in the way :/ 4. Training Idols train a LOT. Sure, in America entertainers practice, train, get vocal lessons, learn new instruments, get prepped for interviews etc but they are not forced to practice for 12 hours a day. Living in dorms without cell phones or internet, being forced to learn languages, dances, public speaking, etc - its totally normal in the idol world. Because of this, idols should be pretty prepared for anything. I'm not so sure American entertainers would be up for this style of training. Can you think of other reasons why the "idol" style of the music industry doesn't work in America?

Song Ji Eun's Lyrics Will Break You Down
Song Ji-Eun doesn't get enough love. Her songs always have a message that will punch you right in the heart, and her voice is stunning. Below are some of her most emotional songs to date! Barbie Doll was just released this week and talks about being emotionless in love. Going Crazy This is a song about obsessed love and stalkers. Ji-Eun plays the role of the one being stalked, and Youngguk is the obsessed stalker. Ji-Eun: It’s not love, This isn’t love It’s just your obsession Wherever, Whatever I do It’s frightening, The you who watches me Youngguk: A hundred times, Tens of thousands of times I’ve called you But why, why is there no answer? Did you forget? It’s already been a thousand days since we met I prepared a gift you’d like I sit on the street you frequently travel I’m waiting for you, I know my love Don’t call it obsession, you don’t know love Don’t say I’ve gone crazy You don’t know my heart You you you You can never be separated from me Don't Look At Me Like That Many found this to be an anthem about rights for the LGBTQ community. "Don’t look at me like that We’re just in love, that’s all Don’t hate on us, however you’re viewing us We’re just a little different Just leave us alone Can’t we live in a world where time stands still? Why? Why not? We did nothing wrong Why? Why not? We’re so in love" False Hope This is about not being able to get over someone because they keep coming back, even if they're so bad for you. "Don’t touch me now Never touch me Don’t get drunk late at night And call me, never I know you’re tipsy whenever you call me"
Idols With A Cause
Hello Vingle Fam- In July of 2013, BEAST appeared on an episode of Happy Together and something rather amazing happened. I'm not talking about the members showing off their abs (though that was nice), I'm talking about this: The group's main vocalist, Yang Yoseob wore this purple bracelet, a gift from one of his fans, during the show's filming. After the broadcast, the website that sells these silicone bracelets actually crashed due the sudden influx in orders. So what's the big deal about these little bracelets? They are called Blooming Bracelets and they bring awareness to the plight of Comfort Women. "Comfort women were women and girls forced into prostitution to serve Japanese soldiers during World War II. Young women were abducted from their homes, or lured with promises of work in factories or restaurants. Once recruited, the women were incarcerated in “comfort stations” in foreign lands, deprived of their basic rights. Treated as little more than animals, they were forced to face several dozen men a day." All proceeds from the sale of the bracelets "go directly to the “Daegu Citizen Forum for Halmuni” to improve the well-being of comfort women." Of the documented Comfort Women, only 56 are still alive today, their average age is 90 years old. Weekly protests have been held in support of the Comfort Women outside of the Japanese embassy in Seoul for the past 21 years, despite which the Japanese Government has yet to issue a formal apology. Yoseob, who has been seen wearing the bracelet on many occasions since the broadcast, has been called "gaenyeomdol (an idol with social consciousness)" for using his celebrity status to bring awareness to this worthy cause. In addition, the chairperson of the Committee for the Prevention of Historical Distortion in Northeast Asia personally thanked the vocalist. His public support of woman's causes has not only labeled the singer as an idol who cares, but it has sparked a trend of social consciousness within the idol industry. In the years since Yoseob's appearance on Happy Family, many idols have also come out in support of the Comfort Woman's cause by wearing Blooming Bracelets. VIXX's Leo and BTOB's Minhyuk. SHINee's Taemin, Onew and Jonghyun. GOT7's JB and Jinyoung. Even rookie Taeyong of NCT fame has been spotted wearing the bracelets. The Blooming Project was started by a group of students at Korea University who wished to bring about awareness to the often overlooked issue of Comfort Woman. They established a brand called Heeum and created a website. They were inspired by the Livestrong bracelets sported by Lance Armstrong and set about creating an inexpensive bracelet that could help raise money for the cause. Since Yoseob and other idols started sporting the bracelets, the company has been able to expand to include Blooming bags and other goods and even hold events to educate the public on the issue. As multiple members of the project have noted, despite the plight of Comfort Women being an integral part of South Korea's history, many high school students and even adults were not aware of the issue prior to the public's knowledge of the Blooming Project. The bracelets sell for 2000 won ($1.68 USD) and can be purchased through the group's website, HERE.

CONFESSIONS OF AN EX-SM TRAINEE
I cannot confirm if this is true, but it was an interesting read. Fiction or true, this was a cool glimpse into the trainee world - and shows how no matter who the idol is, they have to work their butts off to debut...and sometimes even that is not enough. All credit to Kpop Secrets. I simple copied the text - no edit were made! This is NOT me: So, yes I was an SM Trainee. There are a few things you need to know about me before I get to all the goodies. I am a boy, I am 22 years old, I am Japanese-American, I trained for 5 years (sadly) and I never got to debut. I studied Korean in my high school and got to the third year in the language and my school had found some sort of program which would allow for students to kind of study abroad, but it was more of a Summer kind of thing so it wasn’t really.. idk, kind of hard to explain but that’s not the point~ So a bunch of students including me went into this program and we actually got in. Since the program was based off of a more CLASS type of thang, the two Korean teachers at my high school came along with us to South Korea. This all happened in the summer of 2007. We stayed in SK from the end of June to the beginning of August and obviously we had some free time, actually A LOT of free time. I have always been into singing and dancing and especially KPOP, that kind of triggered me into taking Korean Class and my host brother was really into KPOP too, but he just listened to it, he didn’t really much dance or sing to it. One day we talked about our hobbies and whatnot, getting to know each other and he told me to sing for him and I did and right after he told me to audition for SM, which was literally just a couple blocks from his house. So I got all EXCITED~~~ It was a weekly audition, before I actually went down to audition, we had to call in and schedule and fill out applications and whatnot. It wasn’t until like mid-July when I actually got confirmed for an audition. I went down to the little audition building (it wasn’t the actual SM building, it was like a miniature SM building, they have more than one SM building, this wasnt the main one though) and there wasn’t as many people as I had expected, maybe about 30 of us, probably not even. It was like a normal high school class size. We all waited patiently to go in to audition and while in line everyone stayed quiet, I was expecting people to be rehearsing and whatnot but no one was doing that. It was extremely awkward and quiet. All of this also took place INSIDE the building, we waited on the first floor, where it was quiet and they played some SM Artist stuff on a TV and we just sat everywhere. Someone would come down the stairs and call a name and whoever it was would follow. The youngest person I saw there was probably a little boy who was like .. maybe roughly 13 or 14, the oldest looking was a tall, skinny girl who looked about 21ish. I waited about 30 minutes when they finally called my name. My first name is an American name but my last name is very much Japanese. As soon as they called my name everyone turned and looked at me, their eyes wide and confused. I was like “okay then…” I went and auditioned, sung my heart out cause singing is my specialty. The judges smiled and nodded and they asked me in English “How long have you been singing?”, “Were you born in Japan?” and that’s really all I could really remember.. After I answered, I left the room. I was bummed out because I felt like I didn’t leave a good impression on them.. I was so sure I didn’t get in and continued on with life. Apparently after like four days(?) I got a call from one of the SM judges and they told me they wanted to see more of me and that there would be another audition. I went and got through, another audition, went and got through. There are three rounds. I passed all of them. It was like almost August when they finally pulled out the contract and explained EVERYTHING to me, they made sure I knew what I was getting myself into and that I was sure about doing this. I signed it with no hesitation. Since I was a foreigner and it would be my Senior year in High School, SM told me to continue in America and when it would be breaks, I would come back to SK and train. Also at least three times a month, I would receive vocal and dance lessons over Skype, it was kind of funny. I finally graduated from HS and I was now an official trainee in SK. I really wanted to go to College, but SM didn’t cover that, it was my own kind of decisions. I decided maybe not to go to college (biggest mistake). Now this gets more interesting. I began to do intense training. At SM there are different levels for every category, the categories are Singing, Dancing, Acting, Rapping, Language (English, Japanese, Chinese (Korean for foreigners)) and instruments. There are levels 1 through 6. Lvl 1 being NOVICE and Lvl 6 being EXPERT. For me, when I first entered, my stats were Singing: 3, Dancing: 2, Acting: 1, Rapping: 1, Language: Korean-1, Japanese-3, English-6, Instrumental: Saxophone-3. SM encouraged us to focus only on our mains but never to forget about the other ones, so I only stuck to singing, dancing and language, brushing the others to the side. There wasn’t a day when I didn’t train. Intense vocal training in the morning till about lunch, then Dance practice from then on until about Dinner, then after that you do whatever you want. I mostly just focused on my singing and dancing. There were probably a total of like.. 40 trainees.. But I could be wrong.. All varying from like ages 8 to 25 … Trainee life really is harsh, but very rewarding. I was considered a bigger size, not HUGE, but bigger, and once I quit being a trainee, I was considered SKINNY… LOL, kind of funny. I was put in an international dorm, which was a little bogus, but I was okay with it, preferred to be with everyone else but oh well. I shared a dorm with two others, they were both Chinese. As trainees we are encouraged to train at least six times a week, but SM doesn’t really have control over us. Whoever wants to train is welcome to do so, those who are not as driven aren’t pushed to doing so. Basically you have all the freedom in the world but that depends if you want to work hard or not. Some trainees I saw like once a week. Some I saw every single day. Most of the time, those who trained EVERY day or most of them, were the ones who debuted. Actually I wasn’t bullied for not being Korean, there are a lot of scenarios where you are and whatever, but it really depends on how you portray BULLYING. I mean, duh, I was looked at as a waste or energy or whatever because it is KOREAN pop, but that wasnt BULLYING. It all came down to how determined I was, that’s what determines my drive for being something in the KPOP world. There were cliques, YES. I didn’t revolve myself around anyone in specific but I was pretty close to some trainees. We are encouraged to not become close with anyone because, ya know, we might not even debut with them. You would expect some trainees to have entered SM just to get close with idols, but nahhh, that was BARELY the case. At first, I was very excited to meet BoA, Super Junior, etc. but once we were in the company, they were just like everyone else, they weren’t seen as stars anymore.. And YES, there was INTENSE competition, but even that doesn’t mean you are set for debut. There were some RUDE and arrogant trainees but when the reps and staffs came around their personalities CHANGED. Training made me realize how .. ahem.. scripted and ‘fake’ the kpop world can be.. BUT, of course the staffs and reps are in on it as well, they know who’s mean and who isn’t and most of the time, the nice ones get to debut. At the end of the day it all depends on your drive, determination and character. SM has like four buildings I think..?? One is for the trainees, one is for the artists and the others is just for staffs, representatives, etc. for business purposes. I was ALWAYS at the trainee building, duh. I was only at one of the business buildings for financial issues such as our weekly allowances ($25 a week). Trainees only ever went to the Artist building when we had showcases, which were monthly and it was an evaluation of how much trainees improved and whatnot. Many trainees were sent home because of showcases. I, surprisingly made it far .. not to be conceited.. NOW on to your favorite, the idols.. Like I said, they aren’t all that after entering the company.. They’re just as human as everyone else. They didn’t come around the Trainee building much, but they were always at the Artist building. Whenever we had showcases, the only idols who ever came to watch were Yunho, BoA, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Tiffany, Sunny, Onew and a couple others. I’d say the MOST DOWN TO EARTH idols were most definitely Tiffany, Luna, Yunho and Amber. I personally don’t consider the EXO members idols because I kind of went through everything with them, just didn’t know them personally. The SNSD members barely ever came around, the one I saw most was probably Sunny, she is probably my favorite member after getting to know a little bit of SNSD. They came around and the only ones that ever greeted us were Sunny, Tiffany, Taeyeon and Yoona, the others would walk right pass us. They gave short encouragements, telling us to not give up and they would end it there. From what I saw, what they portray on screen definitely isn’t fake. The Super Junior members didn’t really interact a lot with trainees.. Eunhyuk talked to a lot of the girl trainees though and Shindong is only funny with the older people, he isn’t really much goofy with the younger kids. I say Luna is the most down to earth because even though she debuted already, she still talks to fellow trainees and she comes by a lot to encourage us to not give up. Krystal isn’t a snob, but she’s been called that so many times, she just kind of stopped trying, but she is really nice, she comes to the showcases sometimes and always encourages all of us to do well. Amber is most definitely a tom boy, a lot of people say it’s SM’s doings but no, it really isn’t. The initial thing was to make Amber girly, it didn’t work, so they switched up the concept of f(x), having a tom boy. She is a tom boy but she has a very caring soul. I’d say she is the idol a lot of foreigners can relate to most, for she is an outcast, being Chinese and a tomboy, etc. She speaks up for a lot of trainees who are being outcasted and when f(x) comes around to check up on trainees, she tries to include outcasted trainees in some things, like maybe dance warm-ups, she would always bring them up to the front when they always stand at the back all shy and stuff. I didn’t see much of SHINee, when I did, they always looked SERIOUS and like focused.. They’re the serious idols, they really aren’t that down to earth, from what I saw. Now, onto EXO.. Since I trained for 5 years, you’d expect me to have been a line-up member, right? Well no.. sadly. I mean one of the managers brought it up to me and told me to work extremely hard, this was in 2010, when the ‘New Boy Group’ rumor was spreading throughout trainees. We all began to work EXTRA hard, but I wasn’t even chosen to be a POTENTIAL member.. The EXO members weren’t that close at first, obviously.. I’d say that my favorite members, after getting to know them through TRAINING, would have to be Suho, Baekhyun and Lay. Suho, being trained for 7 years, he never gave up and he lacked a lot in singing back in 2008, when I first entered. I was like ..why is he here.. then I saw his face and I was like Oh.. But yeah, Suho is VERY hardworking and he is very popular amongst trainees, as in like he is friends with a lot of them. He is very down to earth and yes he is a crybaby. He cries every time something dramatic happens to him that lets him get closer to his dreams. He cried when he was confirmed an EXO member. Baekhyun, you’d expect him to be cocky and whatever, being trained for only 1 year, but you are all wrong, he already had an amazing voice when he entered SM, but his dancing was okay. He worked extremely hard to improve his dancing AND singing and his personality was already on point, so he was already at a 4th year trainee level. Lay is a super nice guy, he always smiles and tries to bring laughter to everyone. Like I said, I didn’t know these guys personally, but who wouldn’t know who the popular guys were? The EXO members come around just a little and when they do, they aren’t as lively. Chanyeol is way different off-screen. He knows that he’s cute, so he’s a bit cocky and not too much a great guy. Kai is short-tempered, that’s just what I heard, so the EXO members don’t talk to him off-screen, the only one who does is Chen, but Chen talks to all the members. I heard that if something seems to be going wrong OR needs to be done, the reps and staffs DEMAND the artists to do something about it. Chanbaek was created through staffs, because they knew that every group needs an OTP in order to gain a lot of popularity, so the one with the VOICE and the one with the MAD INSTRUMENT SKILLS was put together. It is very scripted, indeed.. After EXO debuted, the question of me still being in SM while I was 21 came to be questioned.. SM was probably not going to be ever debuting another boy group any time soon and I was right. My manager talked to me and said that reps discussed that the New Girl Group (GE7) would debut in 2014 and another boy group would have to settle for 2016, I’d already be like 26 .. I evaluated all my goals and I realized that what I had been doing all this time was just a waste of my time.. I was looked upon as just an extra and I didn’t even have a chance. The KPOP world is definitely HARD and it you’re not a stand out, then don’t try. I left SM in April 2013, when my contract with SM ended. I went home and right now I am working and hoping to go to College in the fall. My manager still calls me once in awhile just to check if I need anything or just to talk. It is quite sad, but you know, all you can do is learn from things like this. Oh and also, I got a call from a rep from CCM and they want me in as a trainee and I just shook my head like NO and declined.. Really..? Uhh.. no, after all the controversy.. This is all I have to say.. Sorry for it being so long.. I hope this helped OR just was enjoyable.. Thanks for reading :))
