South Koreans Reaction to the Seungri Scandal and Retirement

Hello fam! I thought this was really interesting to hear how real normal South Koreans felt about the entire scandal. Seungri played a huge role in the entertainment business and S.Korean society.

[Sao Hàn] 5 lý do để Seung Ri được gia nhập Big Bang
Cậu út cũng chính là "bộ trưởng bộ ngoại giao" của nhóm đã tiết lộ những điều thầm kín của mình. “Lý do thứ nhất tại sao em nên được chọn là không ai trừ em phù hợp để là maknae của nhóm? Thứ hai là nhảy. Em có nhiều kinh nghiệm thể hiện các màn trình diễn và vũ đạo, em có thể dùng nó giúp ích cho bộ mặt của nhóm. Thứ ba là diện mạo. Deul-Hyung tận dụng gương mặt điển trai và mạnh mẽ để níu kéo fans và em chắc em có thể tận dụng vẻ dễ thương, ngây thơ, bề ngoài lanh lợi để giữ fans. Điều thứ tư là sự tự tin. Bất cứ nơi nào em có mặt, em đều có thể bộc lộ sự tự tin qua phong thái và những kĩ năng nói của mình”- Seung Ri chia sẻ Trước khi tôi nói đến lý do thứ năm, trong tâm trí bối rối của tôi đã sẵn sàng chuẩn bị tốt phần nói đó, tôi dùng chất giọng to khỏe và hét lên “Em không có lý do thứ năm. Em sẽ không làm Chủ tịch thất vọng về bất cứ điều gì nếu Chủ tịch cho em một cơ hội. Em nhất định sẽ dùng hết khả năng và sự tự tin mà em chưa từng (làm) khiến ai ngạc nhiên trước đây.” Nó đã xảy ra đúng như thế đó. Có thêm lý do nào thích hợp hơn nữa không? Thậm chí nếu tôi nói ra hàng trăm lý do, nếu chủ tịch Yang không suy nghĩ lại tôi cần thiết được ở lại nhóm, thì ông ấy vẫn sẽ xem tôi là kẻ vô dụng. Có thể nghĩ về điều “Seung-hyun nhỏ trở thành một phần trong nhóm” là vô vọng nhưng tôi vẫn cứ muốn thử. Để nắm bắt lấy cơ hội cuối cùng, tôi không quan tâm nếu có phải làm điều có hơi ngượng nghịu, bởi vì tôi có một đam mê là trở thành ca sỹ (niềm đam mê của tôi là trở thành ca sỹ) và tôi nghĩ rằng mình sẽ được chọn. Tôi chỉ có một ý nghĩ duy nhất khi đó, “Tôi phải được chọn”. Sau khi liệt kê những lý do (nói ra những lý do), tiếp đến là phần tôi cần thử giọng (tôi cần hát). Tôi không có thời gian để dò xét cảm nghĩ của người khác ra sao nhưng tôi đã hát bằng cả khả năng của mình vì tôi biết đây là cơ hội cuối cùng để tôi gây ấn tượng. Tôi cần cho mọi người biết tôi đã học được những gì trong 3 năm và hát trong 3 phút. Quần áo của tôi ướt đẫm mồ hôi, tôi đã làm tốt nhất có thể và tôi sẽ không hối tiếc. Một tuần sau, nhờ lần may rủi đó, mà tôi đã trở thành một phần của BIGBANG. Sự hân hoan vì được công nhận như thế không thể so sánh được với cảm xúc khi đạt được điều mình muốn. Sự chăm chỉ của tôi đã không trở nên lãng phí. Tôi nắm chặt lấy niềm hi vọng mỏng như tơ ấy.

Kpop is Actually Born from Korean Protest Songs
Alright so I'm a total history nerd, I majored in East Asian Studies and eat stuff like this up. Read the full (long!) article here - I will try to explain it basically, but its really worth the read. Here we go: It all started with Japan. As you might know, Japan colonized Korea eventually trying to erase Korean culture all together on the peninsula. In the very beginning though, that wasn't the case. Japan was willing to share Korean and Japanese culture, and the Japanese and Korean elite often spoke together and traded pop culture. Japanese elite brought over Western-influenced music because of their connections with the Western world (which Korea didn't interact with other than missionaries at the time) The Korean elite wanted to be modern and successful like Japan, so they adopted this music (called Changga) as their new favorite genre. (You can hear a lot of European influences in early Korean music...) This is where it gets interesting. The Korean elite wanted to be independent of Japan. They wanted Korea to stand alone as a strong nation, not pushed around by China or Japan anymore. They stared the pro-independence movement. Now, most revolutions like this would turn to traditional music, traditional culture to strengthen the country (for example, Korea would use ancient Korean songs to protest the Japanese occupation) but the Korean elite didn't! They wanted Korea to be strong, and to be strong they felt like they needed to modernize - ie be like the West. They used this Changga music (ironically brought to them by Japan) to protest Japanese rule! To this day Korea is always trying to "keep up with" the Western world so that they can be considered modern and powerful. Most things that they do is to modernize and stay trendy because that is how the country has always defined strength. But then, Japan decided to make money off of that... Japan had seen its first real pop music hit in 1914. People were buying records, following tabloids, and really getting into pop culture. That was really the birth of the Japanese music industry. In 1926, Korea had a similar experience. A song called the "Death Song" appeared, sung by Yun Shim-Deok. The singer committed suicide with her lover right after the song was released and the story made HUGE headlines. It was chilling, 'romantic,' and dramatic. Korea ate it up. Japanese record companies came in and started selling the record, selling over 50,000 copies! (In 1926 that number is totally insane!) You can listen to the death song here: The record industry after that was run mainly by the Japanese yakuza and their partnered Korean gangsters. The industry was set up very similar to how it is now, with entertainment industries doing everything in-house (SM has specific song writers that only work for SM, and their artists are actors, singers, models, etc) This is also why so many Kpop artists become actors...because even back in the 1920s musicians couldn't make enough money so the real way to make a living was through acting. That still stands today. So, today's Kpop is based off of this first "Korean pop" hit (the death song) AND protest songs against Japan. So when people say that Kpop is just a copy of Western music, they're sort of right but not in the way that they're thinking. Yes, its a reflection of Western culture, but the reason behind it is that Korea has been fighting to be recognized as a modern, powerful force to be reckoned with since the early 1900s. They want people to know Korea is strong, modern, and a country to look up to, not look down upon. So the next time someone tells you Kpop is a lame copy of American pop - give them this little history lesson. Again, PLEASE read the full article - its so interesting! HERE it is!
