Netizens think K-Pop idols are overusing religious references

AKP STAFF

Netizens are talking about how they are tired of seeing idols overuse the same concepts these days. 

On January 5th, a post prompting a discussion made its way around the popular online forum. Originally titled, "Lately idol concepts are all clichés," the post opened a discussion regarding idols overusing biblical references as their concepts. 

The original poster wrote, "I don't have any grudge against a particular group, but I really want idols to stop using references from the bible as their concepts. Every group has something to do with the forbidden apple, the serpent, or fallen angels. Can't K-Pop function without the bible? Did the Christian community fund their music videos? smh"     

The top three comments are: 

"I agree. Why always bible? Can someone use references from Buddhism instead?"

"And I think recently there are way too many homoerotic performances."

"I feel like the industry no longer focuses on the song itself. Everything revolves around performances and concepts. I think this is why the general popularity has declined recently."


What do you think?

Did the Christian community fund their music videos?

So are all netizens this dumb or do you guys just specifically pick out the stupidest ones to post about?
