    Obviously I would like less known groups to receive attention when they do have activities. Quite often their comebacks are completely ignored. There are many groups that have been mentioned once, maybe when they debuted, and after that nothing, even though they are active. Famous groups already get all the attention they deserve. So no specific names from me, just saying that the less known group, the more articles about it.

    I think is important to have articles about every group based on the relevance of the information, because everybody wants articles about their favorite group but please don't make this a popularity contest about who has more articles.

    Also is important to have articles about new and not so well known groups, that way we can get to know them.

    I think there should be more articles that mention BTS, there clearly aren't enough.. *sarcasm off*

    But seriously, there will always be groups with more articles then others, I don't think the amount of articles is the issue, it's how they are written to instigate fandom wars and their click batey titles there is the problem on this website, turning it to pure trash these last couple of years. For example, when Ellen did a coverage of KCON and interviewed Twice, what was the title of the article and the focus by Allkpop? The fact that Twice mentioned BTS during the interview.. Not the fact that the Ellen show had covered KCON and interviewed Twice. I'm not a fan of Twice, but even I was annoyed by that, let alone their fans.. So don't give me your bs about not meaning to be bias Allkpop, we aint buying it. You just want fandom wars for the extra clicks.

    First, please give SS501 and their members support. Even though they are on hiatus as a group, the members have mostly been active. It was nice to see releases on Park Jung Min (my bias in the group), but nothing has been written about HeoYoungSaeng or Kim KyuJung. You wrote a lot of negative stuff about Kim HyunJoong during his troubles but nothing about his musical activity this year and last year. I realize that if they are not with an agency it's hard for them to get good publicity, but I hope that you try harder to cover them and give them a fair shot.

    I miss seeing anything about JYJ too. (Again, forget the negative junk about Park YooChun and please report information on their activities. I know that as a semi news site you report on the scandals (sigh) but please keep in mind that loyal fans want to know what they are doing in a positive way, especially career activities. That means JaeJoong and Yunsu also.

    Of course I'm grateful for anything (in a positive way) on SHINee, EXO, SuperJunior, CNBlue, and Park HyoShin.

    From the US sources on Kpop are limited. So I'm happy for your site. I think that you mostly do a good job. I'd like to see more real news articles in addition to those two or four line clips from variety shows. The headlines imply that there is real news there, but too often it's just a casual remark from an idol on the show. So, not so many clickbait headlines. Otherwise, I'm happy for the information you provide.

    That's not how you run an entertainment news site. You should write about anything that's worth knowing about. So how about you simply start being professional and stop posting click-bait fluff bullshit that sensationalizes and exaggerates truths, and hire writers who are actually professional enough to do their due diligence and check facts, check resources, and write in English that's at university level?

    but i'm not running the site. nor am i contributing anything of importance to it lmao. i'm just curious about what groups people would like more articles on because let's be real, not ALL things that occur within kpop are written about (and fair enough, you can't call everything news) but it should also be remembered that it is important for sites like this to generate traffic. of course if they have 'news' about a group that is more popular or more interesting than another (i.e. that more people will likely read) they will post that. or if they have group that they like, they will likely write more about them. this is a pretty informal news site. no need to curse me out (i don't even go here hahahah)

    The "you" refers to AllKpop. I don't care who the writer is--it's still an article that appeared on AllKpop. And nowhere in my comment was there any "cursing out" of anyone. If you don't understand what that term even means then I suggest you look it up. And again, focusing on popular groups is what creates a terrible news site, no matter how informal. If something critically important happened to a less famous group, does that mean it deserves less attention than yet another useless fluff piece about a popular group. If a member of a nugu group got severely injured during a performance, would that deserve less attention than some fan spotting a popular idol with a new hairstyle?

    Seriously is it to much to ask for simple stright forward articles on activties of groups and solo artists... Using KHJ as an example this year alone he held a world tour, released 2 albums ( Take my Hand released June 8, and Wait for me Released September 26th.. not even been out a full month yet) Opened his own music label, and at present is in process of Japan Tour. Oh and released 2 new videos... yet the only news is his New Drama. Dont get me wrong I am pleased as punch about the news of his New Drama "When Time Stopped" Which has offical english title just announced as At the Moment. Its even a bigger faux pas to not report on his new albums consisering both placed high in top 10 on Oricon charts. These are the news that were not covered by Kpop media. I used KHJ as an example becauase he is artist whos activitys I know the most about... because only the Drama has been reported about many people believe he just came back. When he has been working Hard for past two years ... I left out all the small fan meets and album signings... and his 2017 activities because news from last year even though it wasnt reported is old news...

    I would have said WJSN or Dreamcatcher, but I think they're done with promoting Save me and What, therefore I will say April not that they've just made a comeback, as well as Highlight when they start promoting again. At least there should be more from groups when they make comebacks instead of regurging the same group again and again while they aren't promoting.

    You people are just going to continue writing excessive fluff pieces about the groups that generate the most traffic, anyway. Fluff pieces that will eventually kick lesser viewed articles to the curb. Why bother asking? Anyways, I'm here now so hear me out.

    Most of us i-Reveluvs just want ALLKPOP to stop using translation site-ish tactics by posting downvotes-ridden, bottom of the barrel k-netizen comments which only inflame drama at the expense of the groups, especially RV. (Some of your readers are gullible enough to believe that these deviously selected comments encompass the whole of k-netizen's opinions. Children, they do not.)

    Or for goodness' sake, tone it down a bit. Or soften the blows. e.g. It would've been nice if that mess about Joy+Jennie+olympian was coupled by a mention of RV's Performer award at the 30th Korea Producer Awards, which, you know, is kind of a big deal. Or just stop downplaying RV's achievements altogether. "Red Velvet Becomes the First & Only SM Group to Achieve a PAK" would have been a sufficient title for Power Up's PAK piece.

    I mean, Allkpop was entertaining, not to mention informative during Gee days. Now, this site is just infuriating. Be the better people. Teach these trash translation sites how it's done. Hire your own translators/give them work. And PLEASE! Stop ganging up on Red Velvet. It's. Not. Nice.

    I understand how popular and active groups will have more news on them. The amount BTS articles is actually fine; other popular groups had/have a ton of coverage during their active phase too. The only problem is when the groups’ names are used for clickbait or to start fanwars with comparisons between each other.
