h.o.t split with SM not offering three members any contracts
S.E.S disappeared with one member at a time from activities followed by a notice saying that the group was no more
Shinhwa left SM together, fought in lawsuits with SM, and are still in lawsuits due to…
So, wait...question, western fans shouldn't use the word selca? I'm confused...if not then why?
in general, if you’re not korean or speaking to a korean person, why would you want to use a korean word?
really think about it. what work does it do in your sentence to use a korean word instead of an english equivalent like “selfie” or even “gpoy”? in some cases like “maknae” there’s no english equivalent… but for words like “omo” instead of “oh no” or “selca” instead of “selfie”… really, what does it do? ask yourself.
do you think it’s a “cuter” word? do you feel more valid as a kpop fan through connection to “korean culture” by using these words? does it identify you as a kpop fan to other kpop fans?
well: no language is “cuter” than another. to think so is condescending and infantilizing to people who use that language for bank documents and divorce papers and feminist discourse and fights with their parents etc etc. and if you use it to flaunt your “insider” knowledge of kpop fandom, well, guess what!! this language isn’t the language of kpop fans. it’s the language of koreans. we don’t get to just take bits we like, take it out of context and use with each other… it’s trivializing to korea’s 5k year history and civilization to reduce the languages to ‘a way to prove i know more about that fandom than newbies’ or whatever.
does that make sense?

minho - the ultimate noona killer
i remember this. this is one of the many reasons why i fell for this guy. this episode of star king was featured with this lady who suffered from this disease that weakened her bones, i think. she said that she loved Minho. she said their love was 'a love that couldn't be' due to her being 40 years older than him. she did have a husband and yes, she did love him. but she loved Minho as well. the thing that really got me was when the lady kissed his cheek. he returned the favour and kissed her back. this saddened me because of the lady but also opened my eyes to how beautiful Minho’s soul really was. Minho truly is an amazing person and i hope that his future partner is very grateful for being with him and i hope they have a good life and a happy family. <33
God bless you Minho.
