    Thank God Kpop Idols Are "Fake"

    [​IMG]

    As I've been informed...

    Being polite and mannered = Fake
    Being cheerful and optimistic = Fake
    Dressing in a conservative and modest fashion = Fake
    Evoking publically a modest and innocent aesthetic = Fake.

    I mean I get it. Some of you'll can't stand the more conservative aspect of general kpop culture.

    You're used to Trump grabbing women's crotches and "being real" and Cupcakke singing about taking D and the like.

    When's kpop gonna get REAL? Right?


    Awww... maybe someday!

    Until then Eman's just gonna sit back and enjoy his nice clean wholesome Yoona clones.


    Annyeong!

    Disclaimer / Further Explanation:
    I'm all for people behaving however they want. I just think it's funny that people automatically assume a certain behavior or value system is "real" and one is "fake".

    That said, I don't think it's a bad thing kpop culture encourages a certain conservative image. I find it refreshing compared to some of the values promoted in other entertainment industries.

    Just want to add that being 'real' doesn't always mean being rude or vulgar. It just means being honest and true to oneself instead of foregoing certain genuine actions and behaviors in order to appear more polite and conservative. But otherwise, I get what you're saying.

    I think all this stuff doesn't really add up tbh.

    People international may aren't that much into the innocent concept but they don't really call them out for being fake.
    But as soon as an idol speak up about something, international fans are getting woke and calling her or him out for being rude or just fake.
    Let's not even start with slut-/bodyshaming for girls like HyunA or CL for example. Or how everyone is getting called out for being a "tryhard" (like I seriously hate this word with a passion)

    It may seems that international fans are into "badass" concepts and stuff but in the end, those groups are still the ones with the most hate.

    I feel like it's because of how rare/uncommon and unacceptable it generally is for an idol to act in a bizarre, rude or vulgar way which is why we see it as the real side of them? Whereas, every idol is expected to be well-mannered, happy, enthusiastic and etc all the time so that kind of behaviour seems as though it's manufactured/fake.

    But I see where you're coming from lol

    I think lots of people misunderstand on this topic.

    I still think that i'd prefer that idols would be able to go publicly and be honest rather then having a fake identity, I'm not saying that they all are but as far as for dating,smoking etc this shouldn't be an issue to talk about publicly. And there are already people like that in K-POP with best example being Jessy, she admits all PS she's had and is not scared to say what she means.

    The innocent image that idols portray makes fans think they can own them as a item.

    However, I'd also like to add that some active groups never get into any scandals and then after some time quite a lot happening of sex scandals etc...

    I'm not saying that ow, the idols are friendly and they're only acting to be so, I'm saying that obviously most of them are not as innocent as they are portrayed.

    The worst thing I find about the whole "fake" thing is that people seem to assume that all cute/innocent idols act the same way to keep up with their image. If they even took the time to check out certain groups even a little, they'd realise that they aren't the same personality wise and aren't actually being limited.

    People raised in a household where they were raised to be polite and optimistic and act that way = fake.
    People raised in luxury having everything given to them acting like they are all gangsta from the hood and badasses =real

    There's nothing wrong with being a genuinely decent, clean living person. There's nothing wrong with having old fashioned values and dressing conservatively. I more or less live that way, so I couldn't judge that. The problem is when idols, especially females, are not allowed to show their real personalities at all! And I don't mean doing soft porn photoshoots or talking about their sex lives. I mean being able to admit they have boyfriends, speaking out about social issues, standing up for themselves when someone sexually harasses them, or suing when a company mistreats them. Females idols are often treated like dolls with no right to their own minds, and that isn't right.
