Pretty Gay K-pop Music Video

This is supposed to be a gay-theme music video—basically they’re cruising each other, right?

There are subtitles. They mention a girl. I’m confused.

R17, unless they're extraordinarily talented (which is rare), they're chosen for their looks, so usually there's been no surgery. Styling (hair, brows), and makeup are really important, too.

It's a thing for companies to release their childhood photos from babyhood on including yearbook photos, either directly or through fan clubs, so they prove they've had no surgery.

R22, the culture is very different. The music and costumes might sound and look Western (usually—see link for a not atypical counterexample), but the guys are very East Asian in values (e.g., extreme personal sacrifice for their "teams" (groups), younger members' generally unquestioning obedience to older members), and behavior (e.g., polished politeness at all times, strong same-sex affection). That's something that makes the genre interesting.

Also there's much greater tolerance for "flower boy" beauty (the video is also pretty typical of that). The term came from Korea originally.

R47 who doesn’t like Amber Liu? I really don’t get that. She’s one of the only unique and interesting and self-possessed people to come out of the K-Pop scene. The rest all look and act like clones, but there’s no-one else even a little bit like Amber. Probably helps that she’s Taiwanese raised in America, but let’s not talk about that...

For that matter, f(x) as a whole were essentially the 5% worthwhile quotient in a scene otherwise mostly filled with forgettable robotic unartistic dreck. On a day I’m feeling generous and upbeat, I might also add Hyuna, G-DRAGON, SHINee (already mentioned upthread), and the short-lived AFTERSCHOOL to that list. Apart from that, it’s been predictably terrible music.

If you haven’t had exposure to K-pop yet but want to get into Asian contemporary music, spare yourself and listen to 90s-2000s J-pop/rock, Taiwanese fusion, or even Chinese neoclassical instead.

by Anonymousreply 50April 16, 2021 3:23 PM

[quote] [R47] who doesn’t like Amber Liu? I really don’t get that.

R50, I like the machine and its vapid, inauthentic, or whatever-perjoritives-you-want-to-call-it output, and I really don't like Amber's constant harping about the industry. She's free to do it, but I'm just answering the question I'm inferring from the quote above (not just "Who doesn't like her" but in turn, impliedly given "I really don't get that", "Why?").

If she wants to be a "real" artist—gritty, authentic, etc., so be it, but I think she should take her millions, stay in LA (where she is now), and do her own thing there without riding on the "I was in K-pop and I know all about it, Westerners, and it's terrible - here's the dish" train (e.g., her extensive interviews in the new YouTube Original documentary seres on K-pop). It's her life, and she's free to do what she wants, but it's so Uncle Tom-esque: It's like that fat chick goth Asian vlogger Sherliza who searches for offensive stuff on Asian TV to run to YouTube and post it and feverishly tell Westerners how terrible Asia is, make them gasp, and get attention and money that way. She also does Amber's K-pop spiel but has no background in the industry, unlike Amber. It's like, with the latter fat chick, just shut the fuck up and stop running to foreigners to rag on something you have no relation to.

That's just my take. No anger towards you or anything.

One of Amber’s dearest closest friends and bandmates, essentially a little sister to her, committed suicide young due to industry pressure and bullying.

If my little sister or my best friend took her life over something like that, I’d want the world to know and be warned, too.

by Anonymousreply 52April 16, 2021 4:08 PM

I like K-pop because it's a perfect combination of:

- synthesized/cultivated very cute idols with nicely crafted outward personas (polite, humble, cheerful) who work hard and sacrifice for their groups ("teams") and show obedience to their elders in the group and their companies

- extremely catchy music, colorful concepts for each new album ("comeback"), meticulous styling, and insanely well-crafted music videos

- very engaging media ecosphere (livestreams, music shows with voting on apps, variety shows, reality shows, survival shows, awards shows, the Idol Star Athletics Championships, dramas casting idols, fan-meets, concerts, merchandise including light-sticks, fan cafe message-boards with unique access to the idols, direct daily YouTube content, 3rd party YouTube content (e.g., fan-cams, airport arrivals, formal greetings outside the TV studios before the music shows, etc.)

- the symbiotic relationship of fans to the idols, where the latter knows that he/she must meet fans' expectations for quality output, politeness and outward humility, professionalism, appearance, and decorum in exchange for their celebrity status and wealth

- the intimacy fans have with the companies that produce the idols and their groups; it's like being a fan of Tesla, and reading up on their new production models, concept models, launches, branding, etc.

It's all such a refined, ever-improving machine—and fans are aware that it's a machine, and that doesn't make its output, the product of sacrifice and lots of hard work, less fun/loved.

Scandals, suicides and the like are byproducts of the machine's output, and all the machine is iterating and focusing increasingly on looking after idols' well-being, with companies trying different things to make idols healthier and happier (e.g., JYP having psychologists on staff and serving healthy, organic food with an on-staff nutritionist and chef; letting idols take time off when they need to, as at an increasingly number of companies like Pledis, etc.).

The people who dismiss it, and say it's inauthentic, and say, e.g., "Japanese punk rock from 1982 is REAL music" don't get this "meta" perspective: we know what it is, and how it's made, and we're fine with it, because it's engaging and it makes us happy.

Being like Patsy and Edina/ a, sneering "In my day, we had real music: the Stones, baby — it was real and gritty: you'd wake up in a pool of your own sick dusted with heroin with Mick passed out on top of you" is tired and leaves one blind to the charms and distractions of the K-pop industry and its output.

It's like someone dismissing today's high-tech, refined luxury electric vehicles and saying "those aren't cars: you want a real car? Think the 1970 Camero, or the 1967 Mustang — those are REAL cars." It's just kind of needlessly closed-off and dismissive of the new music for what it is. It's not trying to produce classics: it's creating catchy songs that just get you through the week/month, with new stuff coming all the time. It's not haute cuisine from a tucked-away bistro in an otherwise obscure alley in Paris: it's more like ... Sweetgreen.

Disney movies are DIsney movies: we know what they are, we know they aren't high art, we know they're contrived and full of lies in their way, but they make some of us feel good when we watch them.

Unflattering comparison. Disney movies may be enjoyable and wholesome to some, but their films propagate many dangerous and unhealthy societal messages and insidious conditioning to young children. They also co-opt folklore and art and literature without compensating original artists, then using their own employees turn it into unpalatable claptrap that glosses over anything of real value. Then there’s the way their tonnes of plastic merchandise pollute the planet, the way their parks and resorts occupy and damage residential and green land, the way their industry eats into local tourism and takes profits away from smaller creators....

by Anonymousreply 56April 16, 2021 4:37 PM

R56, I kind of (badly) included that with "we know what they are, we know they aren't high art, we know they're contrived and full of lies in their way". And of course images in K-pop make some kids feel bad about their appearances, and some or even much of it is culturally insensitive, sexist, etc. Most any popular media can be deconstructed and shown how from many angles it's harmful, exploitative, culturally problematic, etc.

We all know about the horrors of stuff like Disney, but I was trying to be honest. They're similar in some ways, and a lot of what they are isn't good. Pollution is the same in K-pop: tons of plastic merchandise and huge carbon footprints getting albums and goods shipped around the world. Lots of wasted one-time-use costumes, etc. Not so much the tourism/land use stuff, however. I personally don't like that they abuse octopuses during the "What's in the box?! OMG today it's an octopus - so gross and squishy!" games, or that they eat so much goddamn meat when it's "Yay! We're having a party with yummy food!" time in videos.

There's a lot that someone might not like. I'll make another unflattering but somewhat resonant comparison: it's like Amazon. Tons of problems that matter more to some than others, but for some it's what we like.

Again the meta point is that we "know"—we see the angles, too, and Western media with its angst and postmodern analyses make sure we do—but ultimately on balance we consume and enjoy, because it gets us through the day and makes us smile during our otherwise short, miserable lives.

And some of aren't just aren't smart or refined enough to find transcendent joy in classical music, 1920s jazz or "authentic" punk rock from, e.g., 1973 Berlin in 1973 or "authentic" pan-African hiphop 1999 Mali.

Well, it’s a pity someone made you believe you have to be ‘smart’ and ‘refined’ to enjoy non-mainstream music & art. That’s pretty low on their part, and smacks of gatekeeping.

With more obscure cultural forms, it’s just about exposure to it and partaking of it with an open mind. Fine if you don’t like it, or it leaves you cold; not so fine if you just never try it, because you think you’re too dumb or trashy or you’re somehow culturally disallowed.

^^^to use myself as a personal example: I’m a university dropout from a low-income hillbilly family, and I like to watch or listen to an opera every now and then. I can’t understand the lyrics unless they’re in English, I can’t claim to ‘get’ the music (I play a little folk, but I’m no great shakes a player, and can’t sight read either), and I lack the enormous breadth of historical and literary knowledge to grasp all the arty contextual references. I don’t claim to be a connoisseur and I can’t have a lengthy deep discussion about it (well, not yet), but I know a little about the form and what to expect, which is enough to basically take in a show and find something interesting or enjoyable (even if it’s just one particular aria or set or costume).

As for non-theatrical music, I will throw on some jazz or some baroque or some experimental art/prog rock every now and again, really for variety and my curiosity more than anything else. I keep my mind open, but I also don’t force myself to listen for long if it doesn’t catch my ear or my mind or my heart.

My grandmother is the type to force-feed herself classical music and the Paris Review, because she wants to tell and show people she’s intellectually cultured. I don’t play that.

You do you. I was just wondering how fans of genre like K-pop square away the ethical stormcloud surrounding the industry (and it was a comprehensive answer, so thanks). Guess we’ll have to agree to disagree.

It’s just the styling for pop groups in Korea. Oddly you get used to it even if it looks so over the top at first.. It’s really for when they are dressed up for stage.

R118, are you a flyover?

They're just stage looks for "comeback" concepts. "Comeback" in K-pop means a new release of a song, album, etc. They happen every 4 months or so. The looks change every time, and they don't look like that offstage. They're not styled like that in everyday life. That should be obvious.

I like how they take every existing pop musical genre or subgenre (e.g., Latin house, dubstep, etc.) and emerging look in makeup, hair, costume, and video production style, polish and combine them in interesting ways to make up "concepts", and then deploy them, commodified and packaged, in mere month-long promotions for new track/album releases. It puts cultural trends in their place, as just ephemeral novelties, rather than how the West elevates silly things like a hairstyle, dress, or particular pop culture era into stuff worthy of an biopic, etc.

And I love how foreigners freak out when they engage in cultural appropriation. They don't care about that stuff, unless it affects sales, in which case they make an apology and the controversy evaporates.

Most of the music in Kpop is atrocious. If I wanted to see hot guys I could look up Instamodels or watch porn. I'd rather not inflict myself with overproduced and disposable music that makes my ears bleed. A lot of Kpop fans get so violently angry when others don't care about Kpop. I love anime, Hong Kong action films and studying East Asian culture and history. But Kpop just sounds like a cheap knock-off of American pop to me and the whole Idol culture is beyond creepy and exploitative. I prefer Korean rock music and hip-hop. And at least Japanese popular music is distinctive and I love the use of jazz, funk and traditional string instruments in a lot of their compositions.

by Anonymousreply 127June 2, 2021 3:00 PM

Korea is creating groups for Japan now. So far they're huge hits. They're going to assimilate their pop music industry like the Borg. Japanese idols will actually be polished when they debut in Japan, cf. the old trend in Japan of "just swing it and get better over time", and they'll actually be able to dance now. I'm looking forward to Hybe's Japanese boy group.

I’m not a fan of Twice. The girls are all super cute but their music is boring and/or cloying. They are typical of Kpop’s double standard where the men can go hard and be sexual (within reason) but the girls must be demure and restrained. There are exceptions to that rule but Twice’s popularity kind of speaks for the audience preferring the women to be ultra conservative.

I want to add that this is clear lyrically too. BTS can rap “man or woman, I’ll make you come with my tongue” but no female in KPop could get away with a line like that.

R186, Confucianism isn't dissimilar from (moderate contemporary) Islam, when it comes to standards for male/female behavior. It's Islam minus god, and minus the foreignness (it's from next door, cf. SE Asian countries like Malaysia et al adopting a truly foreign religion, Islam).

That said, that kind of lyric is extremely unusual. BTS is a little bit "out there" because their company gives them a lot of freedom (relatively speaking) and they're trying (desperate) to be globally appealing (thus the vulgarity).

This video is titled "Confucian boy Lee Juyeon". He's a member of The Boyz. The point for posting it here is that under Confucianism men shouldn't be vulgar (per your "within reason" parenthetical). That BTS lyric is very un-Confucian, obviously.

I am still new to KPop so there are a lot of groups I don’t know anything about but I know their names. The Boyz, txt, EXO … there are so many more. And those are just the boy bands.

As far as girl groups go I don’t think there are any putting out music with as much crossover appeal as Blackpink. I am interested in MAMaMoo (horrible name) as I love the members. Individually they are each really interesting. I am also curious about Red Velvet.

Anyway Kihyun of Monsta X was recorded singing some old standards recently. He has an incredible voice! I hope that group can survive as each member is due for military service.

There are so many groups, R227, right? I generally just stick to two or three groups, and if I happen to hear a song I like from another group, it's possible I start following them, too. Or I might just add their top songs to a playlist but not really get to know them: I like Twice, and listen to several of their songs a lot, but I don't really know who's who, or anything else about them, really. Same with Itzy. I used to listen to Red Velvet, until I learned that Irene is a terrible, abusive person, after which I couldn't listen anymore.

TXT, The Boyz (TBZ), and Stray Kids (SKZ), all 4th-gen boy groups, are the ones I'm following rather closely, I watch their music videos and YouTube content (variety shows, their own content other than music videos), casually keep up with developments in their schedules, etc., and I'll watch their VLIVE streams every now and then. Fan videos, too, like those Minsung (Minho + Jisung from Stray Kids) videos.

There are many shows streaming for free here. Most of it is unavailable on YouTube. No ads, either. You can just search for the name of the group, and it's possible they have something (Monsta X, for example). I really liked "Kingdom" and "Kingdom: Legendary War", two recent boy group survival shows ("Kingdom" came first).

Are the Stray Kids fans on here liking the teasers they have released so far? I liked the clips I have seen of “Domino” which is supposed to be a b-side I think.

I like the video, but not the refrain. Also, as usual, Felix’s voice is too low to be audible in parts, like the refrain.

I agree that it’s hard to hear Felix. In production couldn’t they have done things to amplify his voice? He looks great in the video I will say though.

Gaslighting + money leeching. Sounds sociopathic. Lucas is Chinese + Thai, I think.

BTS fans are in an uproar because of the recent billboard interview where they were asked about chart manipulation. I really love this group but I find their die hard fans borderline psychotic. Even RM felt it was a fair question.

KPop is really hard to enjoy with SO many obnoxious fans crying cultural appropriation every second of every day. It’s crazy making.

R267, I just ignore it, as most Asian fans do. No one cares about what woke girls on Twitter say.

It's losers from more primitive cultures and their Western baizuo self-appointed advocates.

Here's SKZ in LA early last year. They went to an outlet mall of all places. Probably because there'd be fewer people there.

I'm a bit old to go to their concerts. However, if they have one in LA, I might try to find some seating out of the way.

You should go and get what ever seating is best to enjoy the show! One thing I have learned about KPop is that it has a very wide range of fans age-wise. Hell, Coldplay just collaborated with BTS on a new song.

Speaking of BTS, they seemed to have really enjoyed working with Coldplay and I get the impression that overall their experiences in England have been way more positive than in America. Makes me feel bad since I’m American.

Back to SKZ. Bang Chan did a Vlive the other day and got a bit testy with some of the fans. Mildly so. Apparently Vlive SKZ fans are aggressive and whiny so he lost his patience a bit which I thought was funny.

In other news, Lisa of Blackpink had to apologize for wearing box braids in her latest video as supposedly that was considered cultural appropriation. 🙄 The beat goes on.

R273, I saw the absurd Lisa thing. I can't believe that K-pop is making me a reactionary to the PC stuff now.

K-Pop has to be the worst thing to happen to pop music since music was created. Rag on rap and hip hop all you wanna, but this shit is stank.

I like Hyunjin's new shorter hair. It's been over a year with the long hair. The new cut is refreshing.

Eh. I hate how the audience sings along in the West anyway.

I was going to try to get BTS tickets next week, however. I could always resell them.
