    can someone tell me why did they alter the number with same pattern/repetation? why dont they randomly put the number of votes instead of using algorithm or whatsoever equation they used.

    1. Skool Luv Affair was released on February 2014 and topped GAON's album chart on April 26th 2014 -but at that time Sewol Ferry incident happened hence all the sales were lower than usual. BTS started getting recognition after MAMA 2014, then went bigger after their first US Tour :fear: :fear:
    2. Okay, we agree that SM's taste are the weirdest one (I blame LDN Noise), but if you compare with old Kpop songs (2015 below), the music went too influenced by western music. Like, the only Korean thing is Hangul :fp: Of course you would say the chord transition and song structure are different, but the arrangement, the sound, the music effect, the EDM thing, are too westernized.
    Anyway, you don't know that JE idols are Jpop???

    mnet simply want to inflate the number of votes for all contestants
    to make it that the program looks popular and has a lot of voters (viewers)
    the pd china even has crazier number of votes

    but new controversy is that mnet rigged the original (not inflated) votes
    so we'll just wait after the police finding

    if it turns out that mnet simply inflated the number of votes for all contestants then i don't think it will have any effect on iz*one
    but if not then i have no idea how they'll solve it

    Talk about KPop popularity domestically or internationally, I had read a thesis written by Korean in English that the reason that Boa popularity is due to her popularity in Japan first and how she gain that popularity is by having the collaboration with Japanese company which enable her to have similar kind of promotion like any other JPop artist. Guess which company that use that kind of similar formula? (Take into account the different phase of Hallyu Wave of Boa, DBSK, etc. and Hallyu Wave of SNSD, Kara, etc.)

    The lagging part 1 of Chaeyeon+Hitomi's counseling video has been Eng subbed.
    https://www.vlive.tv/video/153576?channelCode=C1B7AF

    Molak fashion video(?)

    And, Sakura's birthday gift to Hitomi was Molak contact lens. :lol:

    I believe we've watched Shabekuri with Eng sub but, this is a different version subbed by IZ Subs.
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1A10FsMHe_StO5yIzCQjxWiu8HuaCDwai/view

    If the true vote result be revealed, at very least, members who came in clean and square will be cleared of allegation. However, it will come with the even heavier criticisms toward those who rigged their ways in.

    Even if the allegation is dropped, the criticism won't go away. Korean police's trustworthiness has gone down the drain after Burning Sun scandal. The public will keep sticking to what they've believed. Also, the Idol School's controversy is a strong circumstantial evidence.

    Who knows if Hyewon came in clean. There are some suspicions over her too.

    I thought that was Nako, who made a shocking rise from F to A. I don't even remember what was Hitomi's re-evaluated grade. I remember Hitomi had a scene in dancing class when she danced after Eunchae in Class C.

    1. It's true that the sale of Skool Luv Affair was far from epic yet, to top GAON's album chart implied the sizable fandom, implied that the group's position was higher than average. Also, take into account the scale of BTS's first USA tour. Dreamcatcher has had an European tour but, in what scale?

    2. Even when S.M. switches producer, the song can be aural disturbance. Red Velvet's Zimzalabim was composed by Ollipop who also composed Everglow's Adios (inter fans' fave) and Twice's Feel Special. I've seen the comment that K-pop music sounded like what had been popular in Europe 3-5 years ago. Yet, to non-fans, K-pop had distinguished traits, especially the repeated chorus, the dance break, the rap and the high note ad lib. (You don't usually hear ab lib in EDM songs if not K-pop.)

    I'm clueless how JE related to this topic.

    Since this thread is the closest related KPOP thread, I'll post it here.

    Very sad to read Sulli(former F/X member) passed away at her home in a suspected suicide.

    Police said "“It seems that she took her own life but we are also looking into other possibilities.”
    https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/oct/14/sulli-k-pop-star-former-fx-member-found-dead-aged-25

    I enjoyed her smile and bubbly personality years ago as an F/X member. She also guest starred on "Running Man" where she had to hide from the chasers.
    I hope the idols who are feeling depressed find a way to lessen their stress from the entertainment industry.

    Pray for Sulli

    edit: this is more appropriate in the Hallyu thread. Thx sscrla.

    Despite feeling sorry about Sulli, hopefully I*ZONE 1st anniversary (which is coming really soon) and their next comeback won't get affected by it. Now, I am just worrying about Taeyeon... She lost 2 of her dear friends and she herself is also having depression...
