KCon NY unexpectedly suffers under Trump’s Tariffs

Well Well Well Well, I must say a TERRIFIC VICTORY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. He sticks by his guns, just days after EXO’s King Suho declared at the Blue House (basically South Korea adaptation of US White House) Summit- where we saw that terrific border crossing that made Trump an illegal immigrant– that president Trump daughter loves EXO and “all kpop groups” this happen.

US Daddy President Trump: “OMG OMG, there’s a KCON IN NEW YORK THIS WEEKEND. I think I got to see those PRETTY LADIES and maybel score a HOLE IN ONE if you catch my jizz and mean gist!”
Advisors: That’s disgusting sir
US Daddy President Trump: I don’t think so, this is what SOUTH KOREAN MEN TOLD ME I SHOULD DO WHEN VIEWING GIRL GROUPS.
Advisors: You’re not wrong……. Anyways sir will you be interested in a list of performers at the event
US Daddy President Trump: Of Course, the list…..
Advisors: The male groups Ateez, Seventeen, The Boyz, SF9, Nu’Est, TXT, Verivery, AB6IX
US Daddy President Trump: NO I DON’T LIKE MEN, NO MORE MEN. I ALREADY GOT 16 WHITE MEN COMING AFTER MY JOB!
Advisors: The female groups are Izone, G-IDLE, Fromis_9, and EVERGLOW
US Daddy President Trump: And they are all Koreans?
Advisors: Why yes sir, Izone has a couple of Japanese member. EVERGLOW has one Chinese Member
US Daddy President Trump: Uh oh…..
Advisors: Yes?
US Daddy President Trump: We have a trade war going RIGHT NOW. Any GOODS COMING FROM CHINA IS A 25% TARIFF
Advisors: Sir…… She’s a woman not a piece of good/thing. That’s very sexist of you!
US Daddy President Trump: You ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. I’LL ASK CHINA RIGHT NOW. I DON’T WNAT TO BE TARIFF-TING STUFF THAT SHOULDN’T BE TARRIF. WE SAID NO FURTHER TARRIFS
Advisors: 25% TARIFF on her passport IT IS!

AHEM AHEM, that’s right. Sadly KCON New York is the latest victim in this trade war between the US and China. EVERGLOW– a relatively new girl group- has announced that they can’t make it due to last minute visa issues. That means the Super Rookie Showcase (showcasing new groups) will just be attended by Verivery. There are plans though to have EVERGLOW perform at KCON LA instead. Now of course as of this post, there’s only one day left in KCon New York, so if you are in the Garden and want to check out a $76 dollar concert here’s the ticket link.

I strongly advise you though to save your money and attend the LA one instead if you are a KPop fan. Since LA is where all the “bigger” names will be performing. Including Mamamoo, “soon to be nonexistent solo career” Chungha, Momoland, Stray Kidz, and ONEUS. If that’s not enough, most boy groups from KCon NY is actually sign up to perform at LA. The tickets are not out yet but the concert is set to premiere on July 12th weekend.

Well that’s all the news on KCon….. wait what? Momoland noonas want to make a statement?

“Yes please. Ok you people who attend the Los Angeles concert. Ok espcially you men, we don’t mind if you jack off at home ok, most people only listen to us to do that anyways we understand. Jack off in the private of your own home please. Thank you very much”

Ah thank you noonas for that kind message!

[Review] “Uh Oh” -(G)I-DLE goes into dangerous territory

Cube Entertainment’s G-IDLE, a group that is vying for “Korea NEXT TOP GIRL GROUP”, finally places a risky bet with their newest song “Uh Oh”.

First, I would like to congratualate them for this music. It’s a really risky experiment since no girl group in recent memories have ever went for pure “rap hip hop” vibes before. Even as the music begins they are invoking the hip hop mood with “old footage” filter and the “record squeaking sound”. Even the way they dress is old fashion, in jeans and jeans jacket. Clearly PANDERING TO WESTERN AUDIENCE, because I do not THINK such image exist in KOREA back in the 1980’s-1990’s. Now I know a lot of KPop music draw influence from hip-hop, but going full on hip hop is just a tad different. Hip Hop is black music known for it’s vibrant beat, AND what makes the genre stand out is the deep lyrics that is usually reflective of the author life experiences. Rhythm and Blues was generally emotions within the instruments and the melody, hip hop added another dimension by having spoken words. G-IDLE new song only fulfill ONE criteria, and that is vibrant beat. The lyrics are NONE OF THE MEMBER PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, or even if it is it didn’t feel personal cause it’s too general. It was basically a girl crush song (oh you are like everybody else, what do you want with me. Same old same old) but instead of the usual beat, it is hip hop all the way through. I would have prefer if you just went with regular “girl crush” pop beat if you are not going to try and waddle a little bit deep into finding yourself and expressing it in a song. Maybe I’m too much of a purist when it comes to genres, I just can’t bring myself to liking the song although I do like the retro hip hop beats.

This is a risky move, and I really want to applaud them for that. Not only because so many big groups are about to come back (Prepare for GFriend Fever), but this is just have never been done before recently by any girl group. It definitely stand out of the pack and probably of this summer entire KPop releases. Instead of being the black sheep or a dark horse, this song seem to put a target on it self in a hunting range instead……
