    How I Went From Being Anti-LOONA To Pro-LOONA







    ANSWER: Olivia Hye.











    Okay Okay. Real answer. :p




    STORY TIME!


    So LOONA kind of annoyed me at first.

    Their whole "we're not debuting for another year" but here are a bunch of debut? songs we're gonna put out from all the members. But like... It's not a debut. Not at all.

    TF?

    So you're releasing all kinds of shit but it ain't a debut..... "well it's not the whole group!" Yea yea ... splitting hairs here asshole.

    And just in general the whole onslaught of resources and schedules and hype from fangirls and everything... this whole idea that LOONA was gonna crash on the scene and explode (when they aren't even tested) just kind of annoyed me.

    I can't really give you a fair answer as to why it just did.

    I was sort of closed off to them.

    Plus it didn't exactly help that for the most part much of the style the girl's were putting out was not exactly cookie cutter made for my particularities, being a cute stan.

    In any case....

    Something changed.

    First it was..


    Hyunjin And The Pen

    [​IMG][​IMG]



    This hit my cute buttons on overdrive. She can't figure it out and it's ADORABLE>>>>>

    Okay so I'm starting to warm. Suddenly I don't completely hate them. I mean they have an adorable.



    Then Kim Lip In Some Abandoned Place + Schoolgirl Outfit

    Self explanatory but I'll elaborate.

    Kim Lip has presence. More sex appeal than I've seen in a rookie in a long time.

    Her song was seductive and sexy. Rather addictive. It doesn't take you immediately but I found myself humming it way after I stopped listening.

    A win.





    Then came.


    Yves & The Gay Bowling Alley

    Yves is another girl with quite the gravitas. Watching her in her music video.... this girl has it.

    Her song was great as well. It had a haunting retro Euro vibe. Flirted with today's topical relationship norms.

    Had a dark bowling alley. And an apple.

    All good things.





    Then to seal the fucking deal.


    OLIVIA FUCKING HYE. DEVIL, WOLF, ANGEL

    Jesus this girl fires on all cylinders.

    I haven't been so smitten since Yeonwoo.

    And that track..... Oh my god.

    My favorite solo of the year.

    If we forget Jinsoul's rap.... MAGIC!

    I will feed Olivia's ego all she wants. That girl is fine.






    Anddddddddddddddddddddd......


    PRO-LOONA!!!!!!!


    When's that damn group debuting already?





    So it only took me 4 girls to go soft on the group.

    How many did it take you?


    :merongk:

    But to answer the question I became interested with Heejin because the concept sounded cool and I really liked Vivid then after Haseul's solo i was totally hooked. Her solo is still my favorite.

    also, if you haven't seen them yet watch the LoonaTV's there's cuteness onto of cuteness in them especially episodes with Chuu, Choerry, and Gowon

    How many did it take me?

    Well, for me personally, I really like;

    Heejin, Haseul, Kim Lip, Jinsoul, Yves, Chuu, Go Won & Olivia Hye

    (ViVi and Hyunjin are nice too, but not attention grabbing like those above. I don't like Yeojin much, but that could change over time)

    But I have to ask @emanresu10 , you like cute right? How the hell have you not mentioned Chuu? Do you watch Loona TV? Chuu (and Go Won) are cute as hell! Chuu is literally the most adorable thing in Kpop right now.

    Truth be told I wasn't an anti either.

    That's more for effect. Makes a good story.

    I will have to check out LOONA TV.

    Ah, it's good for those who want to get to know them, also the videos are really short, most having less than 1 minute. You can watch on Youtube, just type LOONA Tv

    I've saw a little bit of Chuu.

    I don't know she just doesn't grab me.

    In the cute department Hyunjin is the one that really gets my attention for some reason.

    I'll have to watch more of them though.

    :)

    I was never anti Loona. Just curious.

    Cause Ifans popping off left and right how big they are going to be, but will y'all buy the album? They did this with WSJN, Dreamcatcher, KARD. Groups who aren't even doing that well reduced to 100 - 1,000 seated venues to pay of that debt extremely slowly. iFans realize how badly their faves are flopping and try to praise their minimum success cause turns out none of them were going to support them on the important shit anyways.

    Luckily for WSJN they had Korean Fans actually step in and do what they were supposed to while iFans kept trying to swear up and down how much talent they were stanning
