    Did I get your attention? Nice. :)

    Twice doesn't suck. It's one of the coolest groups out there, at least in my opinion. OT9 forever. <3

    But that's not what this thread is about. What are your thoughts on k-pop clickbait-y articles/videos/news/whatever?

    This is something that has been happening non-stop lately, thanks to BTS' growing popularity overseas after their BBMA victory. Youtubers and news channels have been using this opportunity to snag as many viewers as they possibly can, even though they know crap about the group or k-pop itself.

    I think it can work both ways, but I personally have witnessed a lot of bad stuff coming out of it, most recently with KARD being at a famous brazilian TV show, just to receive racism from the host. I was actually surprised to see an article about the incident here ( Vira-lata Complex, folks. :p )

    Well I guess it doesn’t really put the respective youtube, news agency or even tv show in a positive light, since they obviously have to rely on misleading titles to gain viewers, instead of relying on high-quality content.
    Also I am annoyed af when I don’t get that something is a clickbait headline and involuntarily support things like this by clicking on it.

    Click bait just outlines a lack of creativity and that nobody comes up with fresh/new/interesting ideas to get people interested in content.

    I actually like the reactions and I try to see as many as I can when a new song comes out, but I only watch a few of them (JRE, TheJessLyfe, SamieSofieSteffy, ReacttotheK, AKA Kpop, etc)
    But there are other channels that react to cracks and fan videos, those I don't watch.

    I'm so used to clickbait on the forums I believe that 95% of the threads created are clickbait.

    Nah I don't feel offended by clickbait since I feel like that is a norm here AKP. Plus clickbait can actually be funny from time to time and I don't mind a good laugh :merongk:

    i prefer red velvet, personally, but i dont hate twice, i like all their title-songs apart from signal, i dunno what they were thinking there. the thing i dont like is a part of their fans insulting other groups saying they are either: has beens (new NGG, snsd is done) or irrelevant compared to twice (basically every recently popular girl group not being twice).

    long story short, the groups are almost never to blame, its the fans that make people dislike the group. trust me, i know, i saw how a portion of the sones acted when they became popular.

    Omg I was about to go ham on your ass :D. Tho, the thing is, it shows their popularity and it'll help expand the KPOP community which is always great. But, obviously it's still sort of suck-y that anyone's name is used in advantage for others.
