So I really, really like CUBE.
I feel like they treat their artists right (compared to many other companies) and treat the fans right as well (creating a safe space like Cube Cafe for fans to come and support their idols without feeling creepy and unwanted lurking outside the company building.
That being said, I think they're taking Hyuna a little too far.
Hyuna is sexy - that's her image. And there's nothing wrong with that. My problem is this new teaser for her 4th mini album.
I got into Kpop because it had great music, great choreography, and great concepts. The idols, for the most part, were great role models and when there were lyrics objectifying women or talking about anything a little racy - netizens would usually call them out.
But now we have this new teaser...
More and more groups are talking about drinking and partying which, again, is nothing to look down upon, but partying to the point of throwing up, hooking up with strangers, passing out in a gas station parking lot??? Yikes.
I love Hyuna, I really do. But this is so typical American-party-too-hard-drink-til-I-blackout that it makes me sick. If I wanted this I could just listen to any of the American pop coming out recently!
Come on CUBE!
(and other agencies that are starting to turn their artists this way...)
