Just when you thought K-pop couldn’t get any more irritating

Hmm I do like the helmets though…

    I’m a big K-pop fan and follow all the boy bands (eye candy!) but when these showed up on Inkigayo I was horrified. Worse, they seem to be getting popular in the US. Hey, Korea – is this really the Korean culture you want to export? I’m embarrassed by this both as a female and as someone who loves Korea.

    You probably know more about Kpop than I do. Like it or not, though, this is Kpop and this is what it looks like. Nobody’s interested in elegant ladies doing fan dances dressed in hanboks.

    This is the worst of K-pop. There’s good music to be found, bands that aren’t sex pandering, and bands that don’t infantilize females. By saying “this is Kpop and this is what it looks like” you lump it all together, a blatant disservice to the really good music that comes out of it. Other things that you have written show me that you can do better than sweeping generalizations like this.
