Preteen Nip Slip

GFriend And The Rewarding of Slip Ups

News via seoulbeats.com

One of the opinions expressed is that a more senior group like SNSD or Kara would not have been subjected to these conditions. I guess SNSDs run-in with smoke inhalation at last months DMZ Peace Concert doesnt count; nor any of the other times SNSD, Kara and other senior idols have been subject to harsh conditions. Or, say, every other SMTown concert. Lets also not forget the Hallyu Dream Festival that happened this weekend, and how top group Sistar suffered just as much rookies Oh My Girl and DIA did, if not more so. The only real advantage more senior idols may have is experience, which could give them a better idea of how to deal with crappy situations like these; and even then, it doesnt seem to help much.

Fact is, the video above is more of an anomaly than anythingwere more likely to see news reports about fans getting outraged over such things than hearing members of the media itself expressing that outrage. It can be said that the only reason its happening is because of G-Friends plight went viral and effectively embarrassed the local media into saying something. Otherwise, who cares? These same broadcasters who are dumping on SBS today are likely going to hold a concert with similarly shoddy conditions that idols have to perform in; so they certainly dont. All thats left are the fans, any members of the general public who care enough to be upset, the idols and their loved ones.

Even then, there is still something to sweeten the deal. Generally, the idol is praised for their hard work, perseverance and general lack of complaining; but in G-Friends case, there are a lot more apparently positive outcomes. The South Korean government gets K-popthe industry theyve been funding for yearsinto the global spotlight and thus worth their investment; fans see their favesand K-popbecome the topic of discussion and see the chance to convert more innocents to idol worship; and the G-Friend themselves gained some much needed attention in an overcrowded market.

Her new song is a slow hip-hop piece, which incorporates dubstep and other modern sounds. She aimed to express a bold femininity and charisma never before shown in solo female artists.

That charisma, however, received mixed reviews. Fans who had been expecting CL to do something powerful were happy, but those who were expecting something 2NE1-like were shocked.
