OMG I love LinzerDinzer! What a great topic to think about: sex appeal and good-looks = talent. Linz brings up amazing points which I can’t help but agree with myself.
The ability to lure an audience and keep them captivated is no easy task, and can definitely be counted as ‘talent’.
AIN’T NO SHAME LADIES, DO YO THANG. JUST MAKE SURE YOU AHEAD OF THE GAME. Best part of the video.
Thanks for sharing! xx
Awesome! I’ll add it to AKF’s list and check it out :] Thanks! xx
I know… apparently the government’s still got some loose strings to tie up, and its making itself look quite confused and hypocritical in the process. But then again, those songs are quite old compared to the ones listed in the article, and I’m not sure if the government’s gonna even bother looking up past hits and issuing bans on them as well. If they are then… they’re crazy lol. But they don’t, then it makes the rest of us question their integrity, because it’s making them look like they don’t even know what they’re doing.
Three points: First, like I said, artists have always been coming up with ‘socially deviant’ products, and they always will. No amount of bans will be able to stop them completely. Which means, secondly, battling social problems will obviously require a change in approach. If the government believes that it’ll be able to ban every single song out there, then they’re delusional. Imagine the amount of songs out there, and the amount of backlashing responses their actions will receive. It’s virtually impossible.
Thirdly, it ruins it for the rest of us -_- and besides, though media’s effects are potentially harmful, some aspects of it shouldn’t be overestimated. We’re not as stupid as politicians think we are. There’s a shitload of kpop fans there who’ve placed songs like MBLAQ’s “Y” and GD’s “She’s Gone” on repeat, and you don’t see us roaming the streets at night in search of ex-girlfriends and boyfriends to kill -_-
Aww of course I remember you! You were one of my first few followers…. and the one who gave me the tip about Kim Jihoo ^^
Wait, Daniel Lee as in Tablo from Epik High? I think I may know what this is about… something having to do with doubts about his Stanford credentials, right? I’ll look into it… I don’t really know what exactly went down — I just know the gist of it :|
And nooooo way, this isn’t silly at all… no question or request is silly :] Thank you so much for this! xx
EDIT: BTW, about posting links in ask boxes, I get that problem too nowadays -_- Don’t know why. But what I do is I just replace the ‘.’ with ‘[dot]’, and it seems to work :] for example, angrykpopfan.tumblr.com = angrykpopfan[dot]tumblr[dot]com (and remove the ‘http://’ thing). It’s a hassle, but Tumblr likes to do that to us sometimes, doesn’t it >_> lol
Oh, that’s okay!
Well, I’m majoring in Sociology right now, and I’m hoping to establish my focus on Asian studies and the media (kpop’s an interest among many :]) A prospect I really want to pursue is writing, whether it be editorial or authorial… I hope to be given the opportunity to undergo hands-on research and publish something in the future :]
Hope that answered your question!
Thank you soo much, really ;__; I mean, I TRY my best to stay balanced, since no one’s perfect T_T but comments like these are always so encouraging… thank youu ♥
