People often talk about annoying left-wingers on social media pushing people to the right, and that’s a true thing that can happen, but it also works just as effectively the other way around. I’ve been getting lots of boring pro-incel anti-feminist conspiracy-up-the-ass antivax far-right troll content sent to me lately so I’m just going to start hard-stanning Mamamoo now until they learn their lesson. Here’s Solar, Mamamoo singer and possible bias of Korean archer gold medalist An San.  We all love Mamamoo and An San.  Go Korea!  Insert random left wing slogan here!

Who better than k-pop idols to do drugs? How badly can you even ruin your life when you’re already trapped in indentured servitude to some exploitative corporation and your body is at its physical strength peak from all that training. What’s the worst thing that can happen, you might miss a dance practice? Who gives a fuck. Go to jail for a while? Probably an upgrade in living conditions and social environment from most k-pop dorms to be honest. Propofol should be mandatory, if you want to skip your dose you should need a note from your doctor saying that you’re already on too much methamphetamine and mixing them is bad because that’s the only reason I can think of for an idol not to take as much of it as they can handle.

To wrap up Pride Month for another year, Tiffany made some strong pro-LGBT statements in the Korean media, saying that she liked the fact that “Into The New World” was being used as an LGBT anthem, proving that you can be both cringetastically Christian and still support gay rights. LGBT is Tiffany’s best friend, is LGBT your best friend?

Lovelyz’ Seo Jisoo is one of the latest round of k-pop stars to get COVID. It’s easy to say that kpop stars are young so they’ll be okay, but a lot of these people are pushed to the brink of their health in any case so I wouldn’t rule out the pandemic being a bridge too far for some of them. So maybe just to be on the safe side hold off on the “Ah-choo!” jokes until we know she’s out of the woods so you don’t feel like the world’s biggest asshole in a month (that’s my job).

In 2012 B.A.P had international k-pop fans in the palm of their hand with their great punchy rock-based debut songs. Then they gradually mellowed out into more and more coffee-shop crap and now it all ends in tears 9 years later with the group scattered to the winds and ex-member Himchan charged for multiple crimes and attempting suicide.  Don’t go out like that, folks – stick to rock music, being a good person and keep rocking. Don’t end up like Himchan.  Ballads are no fun.  Ballads endanger the life and happiness of millions.   It must stop.  We appeal in particular to the youth of today.  Stop the ballads!  There are better things in life.

The shittiest thing about bullying accusations in k-pop is it completely changes the type of images that come up in any image search for the person. All of a sudden everyone starts favouring boring looking sullen, sunken-face type photos that are just drab. Stop being boring, all you other k-pop writers, use the most aegyo photos you can find. Fortunately I grabbed this one of Lia before the court case was finalised, she looks like she’s got a good eye-scratching technique there.
