Super M Community Introduction 📢🎉
Hello! My name is Melissa! I am the Pioneer President of Super M Community. I'm pretty excited about this amazing Collaboration that SM Entertainment is doing. So excited that I had to start it's own community here in Vingle. I'll be doing a brief introduction of myself. I want to introduce my team first, @Halsyeon, @Just2BLoved and @kpopfan88. Thanks for joining me in making this community possible. As I mentioned, my name is Melissa. I'll be sharing a brief introduction of myself. Then share some plans I have for the Community. Let's start with me... - I'm from Texas - I'm a huge kpop fan and in lots of fandoms. That's one of things I love about Super M. It has my favorite members from my favorite kpop groups. - My hobbies are reading, watching dramas and wrestling. I enjoy doing photo edits and dab in fan fiction writing. I also enjoy crocheting when I have the time XD - My Ultimate bias is Jackson Wang from Got7. For Super M, I have a feeling that I would have a hard time choosing an bias. - With the new term fixing to start, I'm currently at the end of being President for Got7, NCT, and EXO. I'm currently only President for Super M. I'm editor for Ateez, Shinee, and other communities councils. - I am looking forward to help this community grow and prosper. Now for my plans for Super M Community. We are still in the planning stages. I know for sure that I am planning to Welcome to the Community Giveaway. I'll be giving away Super M 1st mini album that is due to release next month. We will having an Debut event for it also. That's all we have for now. So stay tuned for more details that would be coming soon. Also stay tuned for Council members introductions. Now is the time to invite you all join Super M Community.

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?
Super M Editor Intro
Hello all, It's Erica. I have joined @MelissaGarza on her journey to turn this community into a huge one! So let's do it! It's been awhile since I did an intro card so bare with me! I am 23 (born in 1995) and I've been on Vingle since I believe late 2015. I have been a K-pop fan since roughly the middle of 2014. The group that got me into k-pop was EXO and my first UB was Sehun. My current favorite group is NCT and Jinho (of Pentagon) is my Ultimate Bias. Though I also love Pentagon, Day6, VIXX, Astro, The Boyz, CLC, (G)I-DLE, Everglow, Stray Kids, Victon, Red Velvet, Ateez, ONEUS, ONEWE, and The Rose. I love lots of other groups too but those are the one's I keep up with the most. I am currently the pioneer and president for the ONEUS and The Boyz communities. However, those terms will be coming to end soon. I will soon be the NCT community's president again, I have been in the past for two terms. In the past I have also been Pentagon's Pioneer and president for three terms. The Kpop community's president for two terms. K-Drama's community pioneer and president for one term. (G)I-DLE's pioneer and president for one term. I have also been an editor for kpop, B.A.P, VIXX, NCT, Ateez, A.C.E, and Astro. Before Vingle had presidents/pioneers I was a part of many unofficial moderator groups keeping the interests alive. Before then when Moderators were still a thing I was Moderator for Day6 and Astro and was also on the kpop moderating team! My NCT biases are Taeyong, Doyoung, Kun, Xiaojun, and Jeno so naturally I'm going to support the crap out of Super M since Taeyong is in the group but not only that since NCT is my ult group I would've supported them regardless. Plus I'm trash for Taemin, Baekhyun, and Kai as well. However going into Super M I know Taeyong will remain my bias! I am already trash for these boys so I absolutely cannot wait for their debut! I hope all of you are looking forward to it too! Until then you can join and support the Super M Community by clicking on the link below!

Korean rapper Beenzino and German model Stefanie Michova, who've starred on Big Bang G-Dragon and Taeyang's music video Good Boy, Have been dating for a while. Beenzino says he had learned to speak English when he lived in New Zealand. Beenzino said on conversing with Stefanie, "We speak in English, but try to learn each other's language and mix them in conversations. G-Dragon and Kiko Mizuhara Big Bang's G-Dragon and Japanese American model and actress Kiko Mizuhara reportedly broke up since, but people have speculated that their romance is still going strong. Throughout their five-year-long relationship they have never truly confirmed their relationship.. CL and Ash Stymest Not gonna lie this I most recently heard about at the CL concert. 2NE1's CL and British Model Ash Stymest Ash Stymest was in 2NE1's 2014 MV "GOTTA BE YOU" and is known to have maintained an ongoing friendship with CL, but many speculate that they had been more than friends. Ash Stymest can be seen with a tattoo on his wrist that says 'Lee Chae Rin' (CL's Korean name) in hangul Media Monsters Taglist Come join us A: @AaliyahNewbell @AshleiRyals B: @BTSxEXO @Bangtanss C: @CandyApple22 D: @deeeDUH E: @EvilGenius @EmilyGardner F: @FalseLove @Foxxyjinxx J: @JessyRay19 @jungkooknovieka @jimin21abs @JohnEvans @JasmineGregory K: @kouvarisb @KassiIverson @kimchikpop @KwonOfAKind L: @LadyL @Leolaring M: @Mightymuffin @merryjayne13 @mbg3t @mycreativename @MelissaGarza @mrsax2018 @MorganAlys N:@nimm14 @normabm7 P: @PierceHorizon R:@requiem101 S: @simpsonsamantha V: @Vay754 @VIPFreak2NE1 Z: @ZakariahForbes @ZoilaObregon DO NOT COPY TAGLIST If you want to be removed please message us and we will untag you!
