    Obviously no one (Boy or Girl Groups)should be ridiculed for Lip-synching since kpop groups have tight schedules so I don't expect them to sing live 24/7, but you'd think that all boy groups sing live all of the time which is not true in the slightest. I can name multiple girl groups who were ridiculed and bombarded with hate comments for Lip-synching yet Boy Groups seem to get a pass.

    Because boy groups have harder choreo's is the number one reason everyone will give you

    Not sure why. Could be just how it is for Korea? I expect live vocals from my biases so I don't have any examples.

    Because Girl Group's have to embody perfection in order to get validation and approval. If a Girl Group lip syncs, everyone will quite literally die. However, male groups "don't have to be perfect because their flaws are what make them perfect." :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I've seen BTS and Exo get hate for lip syncing (regardless of whether they did it or not there's been accusations lol)

    but probably bc of the choreo for bg's are harder and the fact women get hate for breathing

    also bg stans are so deluded into thinking they don't ever lip sync when there's been such obvious instances

    EXO was literally bashed CONSTANTLY in 2014-2015 (still now sometimes but not as often). Even when they did a good live performance people would still shade them and bring up another random performance that wasn't live.

    Yes, exactly.

    Quoting a very wise person:

    "We teach girls to shrink themselves
    To make themselves smaller
    We say to girls:
    You can have ambition
    But not too much
    You should aim to be successful
    But not too successful
    Otherwise you will threaten the man"

    I don't doubt of misogyny being rampant but it isn't as much the issue of lipsyncing as other things such as visuals and mishaps that are more reproached to ggs. I've seen as much fuss for ggs as for bgs.
    Worst offender? Mmh who's being delusional, I'm wondering :rolleyes::rolleyes:
