WINGS  <3 YOUNG FOREVER <3

ArmyChimChim Sunday, January 15, 2017

I'm so tired of exo ...... the whole list is full with their boring albums . I just don't get it how blind are people these days and how they can't see the real music and talent . There are a lot groups with a perfect albums for the last year ....and yeah in the end every year is almost the same . Congrats to bts ,my babies <3 thanks for them ,I see some hope left in the kpop ..

kimmiefonze ArmyChimChim Sunday, January 15, 2017

Can you please define what "real music and talent" is?

wisteriia ArmyChimChim Sunday, January 15, 2017

why do ARMYs have to be so rude

ArmyChimChim kimmiefonze Sunday, January 15, 2017

Talent is when you are on the top because of your special skills ..for real,and yáll knows that exo won't be number one if sm are not behind them .As I said before the power of the big companies is very important ,they put them everywhere and paid for some stuff.For example for Kai's lead role in drama even if he can't act at all..and is just not fair.This is what they do in the music.The big companies always will dictate the rules in Kpop.

ArmyChimChim Sunday, January 15, 2017

Sorry Allkpop don't allow me to write a long comments so I'll keep now . So even if the company come out with some group without any special skills or sing talent ( you know these groups who can only lipsync and can't even sing one song live ,only jumping around the stage and ''dancing'' ) ..they will be successful only because they are under big company.And everyone runs after the crowd u know ...like a sheeps,the fans start to not pay attention what the group do as music ,only how handsome they are ,how populary they are ,who they dating and etc.

ArmyChimChim Sunday, January 15, 2017

Even if the group drops the worst song in the world,the fans will say that is ''amazing'' and I'm a hate only because I'm realistic and not a biased.So the point is that exo are good yes ,there are a few songs that I like ..but they don't deserve to be on the top ..they are not so special.For example B.a.p,if they were under sm and back then everything happened with the lawsuit ,and they back.

ArmyChimChim Sunday, January 15, 2017

The will be on the same level as before to leave the company .Because this is sm after all.But now b.a.p are not even in top 10male groups,why ?Because they are under small company,there not much money for reclame,awards ( yes I bet that sometimes big companies paid for awards ,this happen everywhere),promoting,and they can't allow to put them everywhere.

ArmyChimChim Sunday, January 15, 2017

Even if they have killing live stages,tours,different concepts and good quality albums everytime...there is not place for them.And this is makes me sad .Yes I can say that b.a.p are one of the groups with more talent than exo

ArmyChimChim Sunday, January 15, 2017

Everytime when I click on new exo's MV ,I expect to see something different,a fire ... a bomb..and after all I see only songs almost the same with the rest of their previous songs and concepts.

kimmiefonze ArmyChimChim Sunday, January 15, 2017

Sure, Jan.

kimmiefonze wisteriia Sunday, January 15, 2017

Some fans actually think BTS is the second coming of Christ when in fact they are in the same cesspool of KPop artists who are heavily influenced by Western pop music. I truly adore BTS as well as EXO but none is better than the other. Its Ok to love another group and dislike the other but don't be delusional, at least know the tea.

ArmyChimChim kimmiefonze Monday, January 16, 2017

I just share my opinion :) I don't insult and put ugly names on exo ...but when someone is with different opinion and see the things from a different view ..yáll say that this a hater ...hater is when you insult someone without a FACTS and talk only nosense .Better read again what I wrote and you will see that 99% is true :)

bangeryun94 ArmyChimChim Monday, January 16, 2017

The point here is that ARMY are not allowed to disparage other groups. It's the number 1 reason for being banned from the fandom. It's important to remember that no matter how much I agree with you. I don't believe you're trolling or a hater but you really should be careful what you say about you know who. Congratulate them and save all the good and warm feelings for Bangtan

shyloone ArmyChimChim Wednesday, January 18, 2017

I will have too say everything you have said is pretty much what i think

ArmyChimChim shyloone Wednesday, January 18, 2017

well I think you are the only one here who agree with me :D thank u :)

bangeryun94 ArmyChimChim Wednesday, January 18, 2017

I agree with most of what you said. I just want you to be aware as an ARMY that sometimes it is best to not say anything about a few particular groups here on the articles. I don't want you attacked when you are simply giving your opinion

ArmyChimChim bangeryun94 Wednesday, January 18, 2017

oh well I don't give a sh*t if I'm attacked by some 13 years old kids or nah

bangeryun94 ArmyChimChim Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Okay then, I'll stand with you if that happens.

InfiniteElf92 kimmiefonze Wednesday, January 18, 2017

You said BTS are "in a cesspool of kpop artists influenced by Western music" then you say you adore bts..🤔

ArmyChimChim InfiniteElf92 Thursday, January 19, 2017

yeah ... why you even pay attention? Here 98% of the people even don't know what group they stan or don't like ....some of them retards,some of them 12 years old kids and some of them 20+ girls ( womens) with behaviour of 15 years old teens.None of them can accept different opinion and jump to defend without any FACTS ...so disoriented

kimmiefonze InfiniteElf92 Monday, January 23, 2017

From HOT to NCT Dream, these idols literally have the same format and creates the same Pop-Hiphop hybrid music that has been on the radio since the 80s. So whether the produce their own music or not, all these idols still belong to the same category. Its not like when you hear a song, you automatically check the songwriting credits before you decide to like it. You like what you like.

InfiniteElf92 kimmiefonze Tuesday, January 24, 2017

I don't see how that's relevant to what I said... I was specifically referring to the use of the word "cesspool"...

InfiniteElf92 kimmiefonze Tuesday, January 24, 2017

But personally I think BTS is some of the least formulaic out of all kpop groups that I know

InfiniteElf92 Tuesday, January 24, 2017

BTS' music

kimmiefonze InfiniteElf92 Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Gurl its a metaphor... The point is they all do the same music in the same genre to cater to the same demographic. Now, I personally love this kind of music. I acknowledge BTS's talent and bravado its just that they are not out of the box. Their music and themes has been used and reused. I love them because I love the music they make its just that I've listened to pop music for a while you will notice the similarities.

InfiniteElf92 kimmiefonze Tuesday, January 24, 2017

I just realised you are the person I originally replied to, so it makes sense to me now.

bangeryun94 Sunday, January 15, 2017

Yaow!

nitika11 Saturday, January 14, 2017

I feel the writer of this article is a bit biased, based on the choice of words used. --'always sell well'??-- they are always good, thats why they always sell well, not just a phenomenon.--'barely edged out'-- what do you mean to say??!!

bangeryun94 nitika11 Sunday, January 15, 2017

He is listing the albums sales directly from Gaon. I don't know how that can make him biased. The winter albums do sell well, there's nothing hurtful or untrue. And barely edged out means there was just a few votes separating SVT from #10.

vincentrob11 Saturday, January 14, 2017

Yay! No more SM!

kimmiefonze vincentrob11 Sunday, January 15, 2017

Ummm... There's six EXO entries so...

rominess kimmiefonze Thursday, January 26, 2017

Of course, they realized 6 albums (counting the chinese version) in just one fucking year. How can't they have 6 entries? -.-

vincentrob11 rominess Thursday, January 26, 2017

Only Korean albums should be included. Not repackages, not chinese versions.

rominess vincentrob11 Thursday, January 26, 2017

I know, I know... I replied the comment below your comment.

vincentrob11 Saturday, January 14, 2017

Girl group power!

rominess Saturday, January 14, 2017

WINGS only had one version and they released it in the last quarter of the year and they reached the top sales. I'm so proud of my babies! "teamwork makes the dream work" :')

SunnyNotSunHee rominess Saturday, January 14, 2017

You mean the four versions of this album counting as one, right? Of course they achieved an incredible result last year compared to the last albums, but this helped a lot.

bangeryun94 SunnyNotSunHee Sunday, January 15, 2017

You have Wings confused with the albums before that. Wings had one version.

alsk20 bangeryun94 Sunday, January 15, 2017

Wings had four versions W I N and G version

bangeryun94 alsk20 Sunday, January 15, 2017

There weren't 4 versions. It was just photos of different members. It was also random. You didn't know who you were getting

alsk20 bangeryun94 Monday, January 16, 2017

What do you mean?? On all the sites to buy kpop albums you can choose which version you wanted...

bangeryun94 alsk20 Monday, January 16, 2017

Really? Lucky you

bangeryun94 alsk20 Monday, January 16, 2017

Do you have a problem with my comment sweetie? I didn't have the opportunity to choose which version I purchased.

alsk20 bangeryun94 Monday, January 16, 2017

That's not my issue but you could've if you wanted to, eBay, kpoptown, and a dozen more sites gave you the option of choosing the album. You're the one with the problem clearly...

bangeryun94 alsk20 Tuesday, January 17, 2017

I don't have those sites where I live sweetheart. The world doesn't all have the same opportunities that you have. Clearly YOU don't see that.

alsk20 bangeryun94 Tuesday, January 17, 2017

There could've still been a way for you to choose which one you wanted is what I'm saying.. I'm not saying those sites are the only in the world. I can see just fine thank you very much and this is the last time I'm responding to you because you were upset I voted down one of your comments. It's not that serious.

bangeryun94 alsk20 Tuesday, January 17, 2017

I've been commenting here for years and I could give a doodly damn about dislikes. But hey thanks for letting me know I was having a conversation with a kid. Feel free not to respond

bangeryun94 alsk20 Wednesday, January 18, 2017

You're rather touchy about dislikes it seems babe.

bangeryun94 alsk20 Wednesday, January 18, 2017

LMAO! Grow up pressed and stressed!!!!!!

rominess alsk20 Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Neh. Is only ONE version of the album with just ONE LANGUAGE of every song . The "4 versions" means 4 different posters and photos is also random, you don't even know what photo you will get.

alsk20 rominess Thursday, January 26, 2017

I mean if you count versions as language then fine there is one, but there are 4 different versions of the album, because there are four albums with four different sets of photos, that's what i meant by four versions, random or not

rominess alsk20 Thursday, January 26, 2017

If you are rich and can buy the 4 versions of the album just to have all the photos (that would be almost 100$ in just an album) go ahead but in the world are other people that can't give that luxury to themself.

shyloone Saturday, January 14, 2017

BTS and EXO dominate when it comes to albums, im so happy Got7 were in the top 10 too

BTS<3

Moogirl Saturday, January 14, 2017

WHOA EXO SLAYED EVERYONE BY BEING ON MORE THAN HALF OF THE CHART!!!

shyloone Moogirl Saturday, January 14, 2017

im sure if Bts brought out chinese version too it would pretty much look the same

Exbbsy12 shyloone Sunday, January 15, 2017

I dont think so. They dont have mny chninese fans. Moreover i doubt their solos would be so successful.

ArmyChimChim Exbbsy12 Sunday, January 15, 2017

Don't doubt so much :) Don't forget that the power of the companies have a big role in the game ... this explain a lot about exo ,u know . I doubt too that exo would be that successful without SM and the way the company put them everywhere and paid of course about some stuff ...as the case with the new PRO ''actor'' Kai .

shyloone Exbbsy12 Sunday, January 15, 2017

and what do you count all there Chinese fans aye, how do you know im not one of those Chinese fans

shyloone Exbbsy12 Sunday, January 15, 2017

and what i guess when you were listening too August D , you were unaware that thats Suga right from BTS, dont be such a bitch, every single one of BTS could hit with a solo

bangeryun94 Exbbsy12 Monday, January 16, 2017

LMAO! Their covers have more views than entire solo albums. Go be bitchy and troll somewhere else. You're bringing down the mood for both EXO L and ARMY.
