    aight this is just me ranting about everything i hate regarding nugu groups.companies
    its mostly focused around girl groups, but i know boy groups suffer the same things ;/


    1) i hate it when nugu companies make their artists get plastic surgery
    ex: Black Bunny
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    they literally look like the same person but with different hair

    2) sometimes it seems like they debut groups just to get rid of their "old" trainees

    ex: Sol-T
    https://kprofiles.com/sol-t-members-profile/
    they debuted in 2016 and there maknae (then) was a 93 liner. there's nothing wrong with that at all, but this was around the time where younger idols were starting to be introduced
    there are some groups that recently debuted under small companies with members born in the 80s.......
    idk maybe im ageist, but it just seems a little weird to me....


    3) constant line up changes :mad::mad:
    this is my biggest pet peeve with nugu groups.

    here is 9Muses' lineup chart over time. they weren't "nugus" but i think we all know they weren't exactly a top group
    [​IMG]
    they literally only had one member from the original lineup by the time they disbanded.

    4) exploiting female idols

    big companies exploit there idols enough, but its just as bad (if not worse) with lesser-known companies

    for example, Year 7 Class 1
    they had a school girl concept and part of the choreography had them lifting up their little school girl skirts and like...... seductively swaying
    this might not seem too bad, but i assume their group name implies that they're in like 7th grade (12 to 13 years old...)
    [​IMG]
    um?????????:confused:

    lastly, i hate how soooooo many groups disband before they even debut :(
    its literally so sad







    whaddya think?

    Constant member switches always screws up a group. Nine Muses + After School + T-ara are prime examples. Only T-ara managed to make it big but it was member switches that royally screwed them or else they would be rivalling SNSD/2NE1

    I used to only follow nugu groups, so many member changes and disbandments made me sad.
    Most of my kpop playlist is nugu's that are disbanded with a few groups still around.
    Makes me wonder what happened to some of them as most don't use social media so we don't get updates.

    i also used to follow many nugu groups..maybe if i only stanned nugu's i could have kept it up for longers...but next to my nugu faves were my top tier record setting faves...and to see some grups doing so well and some others tearing my favourite members away from me and mistreating the rest...never getting what they deserve? I just couldnt keep up with it after a while..now i stan mostly toptier groups and then some second or 3rd ish tier...idk how many tiers are in this system...but id say middle tier....i cant stan the bottom tier groups anymore cause its just so exhuasting and it always ends the same.

    Same I left for a few years and found a few groups I like still some are nugu but popular overseas.
    It's just easier as an international fan to bias popular groups since they have more content for fans.

    those 1st two girls though...re never going to get their old faces back...these companies are in essence forever 'branding'/'marking' these girls...and not in a positive way..if they every want to persue a career outside of a select type of job type of job? good luck

    its horrible mistreatment, plus they could have done actually good surgery and made the money back off of fan support. taking short cuts and going to the worst ranked plastic surgeon...is not going to acheive anything

    even if you are a korean fan and can get some more content (how much more depends on which foriegn country you compare ti to though)
    ...would you still want to invest in a group you know wont last more than 4 years max? or will last a lot longer..but struggle so desperetly throughout that time? especially a lot of korean fans arent huge multi stans like foreigners who often dont spend so much money...k-fans really really invest in their idols so it wouldnt even make sense to invest in a group you know will never get what they should have got

    True its a tough industry to be in. I feel bad for the ones who are still trying to make an impact but can't due to age since they are "too old" now to join another group. The ones that go solo after the group disbands tend to make it further I noticed.

    yeah going solo is definetly a better move if the idol is able to.especialy some idols who can play guitar or violin or another instrument...not a requirment but if they have that ability it would allow them to more easily stretch into a different sphere of k-music besides kpop which is less judgmental and limiting.

    Also most are more popular in Japan than in Korea. Moving there wouldn't be bad for them in the long run since they have that established fan base. Military also messes with the nugus since they have a hard time being less popular to carry the group thru comebacks missing key members.

    I recently fell head over heels for a rookie group and I’d be high key sad if they disbanded without tasting success. They’re that good
