for those who are ready, let’s go!

• This is coming from a K-
pop fan of 8 years. I’ve
came to the point
where Korean pop has
become flat out toxic.
Through the years I’ve
found 12 reasons why
I’m officially leaving the
K-Pop Train and why it
has a negative impact
on the minds of many
• So, if you still enjoy it
(I’m not judging you) or
disagree with what I’m
saying. KEEP IT
• Also the points will go
from light to harder to
digest, so if it
becomes too much or
it enrages you, CLOSE
because it will only
get worse (maybe
you’re looking to get
triggered. If it’s the
case I’m happy I’ve
planted seeds in your
• K-pop is known for
their toxic fans.
• The Korean pop music
industry is built to
attract devoted
supporters with
Fanclubs (and their
color), music
programs offering
wins based on a
biased point/voting
systems, countless TV
programs including
idols/celebrities & etc.
K-pop function in a way so fans develop INTESE EMOTIONAL
ATTACHEMENT/INVOLVEMENT. The only thing they want to see
it’s their oppa have success at all cost. A lot of fans have a "If
they win, we win" mentality.
Therefore K-pop is infamous for having saseangs (crazy obsessive stalkers
of celebrities)
I’ve myself came across fans (on the internet and in real life) who will
verbally abuse/assaults or threat others for the sake of "defending" their
favorite idols.
2. promotion of unhealthy beauty standards
Korea is well known for its relationship with plastic surgery.
(this is the contestant for Miss Korea 2013…..)

Plastic surgery is not a bad thing but….

HyunA IU

K-pop idols in one breathe say they are natural beauties while people
praise them for their good looks but their faces change at each
comeback. They smile while posing next to a plastic surgeon so they can
promote their clinic to gullible minds or anyone who aspire to look like
their favorite celebrity.
Taeyeon (SNSD)
The industry encourages self-hate.
There is a heavy campaign to promotes a certain appearance as prettier/better. With the
target demographic of K-pop being children & teenagers, it sends the message that there
is something wrong them if they don’t look a certain way. Especially when those with
typically Korean features or a darker complexion are constantly under attack.
K-pop push for unhealthy body
images/eating disorders in
numerous ways:

- Weighting 50kg as a norm.

(which is the average weight of
a 16-17 yo.)

- Crazy diets. Like Dasom from

SISTAR who revealed she went
on a “one food diet” and only
ate cucumbers to lose 10kg in 3
• Feeding those
images & messages
to their audience
can change/alter
their perception of
themselves and
• It can cause them
to view someone’s
body as fat/bad
when it’s not.

Kyla & Nayoung (PRISTIN)


Okay, in the case of Wendy it’s

racial prejudice/stereotyping. But
mam… that chick who grew in the
US and Canada kept her ideals
about other groups regardless her
upbringing. She successfully
showcased her low IQ and
embarrassed herself. Wendy
deserved all the heat she gets…..
• Korean entertainment in
FILLED with racism.
• Going from brown face to
black face. (19th century
style), there is thousand
of examples of racial
prejudices and racism in
K-Pop. The worst is fans
will justify and defend
those behaviours.
• In 2018, black face is still
a thing in Korea…..
MAMAMOO Lee Gi-kwang (BEAST)


Chen (EXO)
• To this we can include colorism and all the
incidents including questionable make-up.
• All goes back to reinforces the idea that
dark/darker complexion/black is
ugly/undesirable/scary/poor/only good for
mockery, etc….

Kuhn (UP10TION) Kai (EXO)

• Fans defend it because
they are under the spell
that their favorite
celebrities can’t do no
wrong (that emotional
involvement I’ve talked
about…) or because they
are racist themselves.

• This is a picture from a

performance of the song
macarena by the group
SHINEE. It was performed
in Mexico, Argentina &
Chile. Wow…….

4.culture vulturing/appropriation/disrespect
K-Pop has always been stealing from other cultures.
In particular Black culture with their strange obsession
with Hip Hop and Rap.
Taeyang (BIGBANG)

• Showing
appreciation for
other cultures is

Lee Hyori
5.uncreative/low quality music

• K-Pop is an oversaturated industry.

• "Thousands" of groups debut every year making the space for uniqueness
smaller. We end up with the same bubble-gum boy/girl group formula
packaged differently.
• K-pop is promoted like a revolutionary music genre when it’s
nothing more than POP MUSIC in Korean.
• There is an overall denial/spell on the world when it comes to
the actual quality of the MUSIC.
• Damn, BTS could moan and snore in a microphone and it would
be deemed as amazing (#BTS-CHYPHER-PT5).
6. Misogynistic
Knowing Brothers (TV Show)

• K-pop and Korean media,

(I could say Korean
culture) has a long track
record of being
towards females.
• There is rude criticism
when it comes to their
looks, what they do and
which type of air they
• An obese hideous man can
sit down and tell a female
to lose weight or improve
her appearance without
being questioned.
Seungri SanE Shindong (Super Junior)

• When it comes to males, many get away with murder (literally), mistakes
and abuse while their female counterparts are nearly offer the same
amount of forgiveness for lighter offenses from fans and society.
• I’ve noticed, in dramas, there is special attention put in depicting
graphic abuse towards females.

Also, female attires are often used for comedic purpose.

7.Ungenuine Image
• K-Pop is 100% fake!
• Going from the overly
scripted variety programs to
how groups are structured
and present themselves.
• In groups, each member is
assigned a role and some
even take acting classes to
fulfill it (ex: the funny one,
the 4D personality one,

• Skin ship and
friendships are put
together and acted in
front of the fans to
fulfill their fantasies.
• Fantasies about
fictional relationships

S.Coups & Jeonghan (SEVENTEEN)

• They want the world to
believe that different
individuals with
diverse personalities,
backgrounds and
minds sets go along
just fine and all of
them are true friends
and would live with
each other till kingdom
• Trying to pretend
those celebrities are
no where near things
like: bullying, dating,
sex, alcohol/drugs or
the possibility of being
NCT a bad
Wonho (MONSTA X)

• Somehow K-Pop has a lot of

perverted individuals among
their fans.
• The industry plants seeds in
the minds of their supporters
so they lust after their favorite
idols or one of their body
• This manifest itself in
many ways but the
most noticeable ones
are fanfiction and
• They are usually made
with fetishized gay
relationships paired
with weird/sick themes
like rape, abuse and
many more.
• shit I’m guilty of that

Art from MMK Peach.


• Also, recently choreographies have become more provocative and

outfits more revealing.
Tzuyu (TWICE) (16 yo)

• K-Pop (along with J-Pop) are infamous for their sexualization of minors/teenagers.
• Known as Lolita/Shota, it’s done by either infantilizing adults by making them wear
typically underage/children clothing or by flat out having young group members (as
young as 14 years old) debuting in idol groups. Those teenagers (especially females) will
wear revealing outfits and performs provocative choreographies like their older
counterparts (promotion of pedophillia?).
Park Bogum Bae Suzy (16 yo) The members of NCT Dream are
14-17 years old

Jimin (BTS)
The case with of Jeon Somin
embodies this concept.

At the left, it’s her when she

was part of APRIL (2015), the
group have a more ¨pure
idol¨ concept.

While at the right, it’s the

same person in 2016. She is
now part of KARD, a mixed-
gender group with a more
vibrant style.

She appears like two

different person since in her
first group, her appearance
and personality was altered
in order to obtain the
pure/child-like look loved by
so many fans.

She’s a perfect example of

how they infantilize grown
adults. Somin is 22 years old.
K-Pop is a big promoter of homosexuality.
Since a huge part of their fans are in fact old anime fans, many has a
liking for the genre Yaoi (gay anime romance/porn).
With the shipping and fanservice (heavily based on gay culture),

S.Coups &Jeonghan (SVT)

Moonbyul (MAMAMOO)

• Extreme measures are used to

please the fans, often group
members will touch or kiss
each other (sometimes out of
the blue) to do fanservice.
• It also promotes homosexuality
as a fetish and creates a
fantasy where gay relationships
are valid only if they have a
seme/uke dynamic.
Yves & Chuu (LOONA)
• This is one of the most embraced concept by fans. To them it’s
revolutionary and will go to the extent of applying the rules of
shipping to regular human or celebrities, gay or not, related or not.
• While fans call certain celebrities
LGBT Queen/King/Warrior, South
Korea is still a very conservative

• Korea uses K-Pop to promote

homosexuality when it goes
against the core values of most of
their population.

• Slowly this media is influencing

people minds and points of
Openly gay singer HOLLAND
Kyuhyun & Choi Siwon
(Super Junior)

• Also, Certain individuals will do ¨gay for pay¨ but get outraged when their
sexuality is questioned… ok….
10.Gender Fluidity/Gender Bending/Feminization
Jooheon & Minhyuk (MONSTA X)

• With their dewy

skins, pink lips
and clean
aesthetic, boy
group are big
pushers of
gender fluidity.
• Soft features and
makeup going
light to heavy are
not uncommon.
• Also, male
groups promote
products like
make up and
skin care with a
female target

Hyungwon (MONSTA X)
Recently more boy groups members are wearing female attire
or typical female characteristics like long hair, crop tops and
Ren (NU’EST)

Kai (EXO) (WINNER) Rap Monster (BTS)
• Just like homosexuality
(or the fantasy of it), this
concept is embraced by
(mostly female) fans.
• To them they are taking
a stance &
gender norms.

“Lord Kim Namjoon took

your archaic gender
norms and smashed them
to the ground”

Rap Monster (BTS) Ren (NU’EST)

Yep it’s the same
person on both
it’s Suho (EXO)

It’s not rare to see males dressing like girl group members and dance to
their songs. Even if its for laugh & giggles, we rarely see the opposite.
K-pop is doing a disservice to the image of Asian males who are already
perceive as more feminine.
(congrats if you made it this far)
11.Illuminati/Satanic/Masonic Symbolism
• K-pop music videos
contain a lot of satanic
imagery. Sometimes it’s
so flagrant it’s baffling.

A Red String
• Wearing a thin scarlet
or crimson string as a
type of talisman is a
Jewish folk custom as a
way to ward off
misfortune brought
about by the "evil eye.
• The tradition is
popularly thought to
be associated with
Kabbalah and religious
forms of Judaism.
Minhyuk (MONSTA X )

Text 100% copied from

• Kabbalah is a branch of Jewish
mysticism, which is thought to have
originated in the 13th century. Its
teachings come from an ancient 23-
volume book called the Zohar, which
offers interpretations of the inner
meaning of the Torah.

• Kabbalist mysticism is the basis for

Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, the
Illuminati, Knights Templar, and many
other occult organizations.

V (BTS) G-Dragon (BIGBANG)

(look at the blue base)

• The most readily identifiable concept in Kabbalism is the Tree of Life , a
diagram that is essentially a map of reality. The Tree of Life consists of
three columns known as "pillars", and 10 sephiroth, or spheres, each of
which represents an aspect of the process God used to create the world.

Jachin & Boaz Pillars
• In Freemasonry, the Masonic usage of the terms Boaz
and Jachin originates from the Biblical account of King
Solomon’s Temple.
• Since the dawn of civilization, two pillars have
guarded the entrance of sacred and mysterious
places. Whether in art or architecture, twin pillars are
archetypal symbols representing an important
gateway or passage toward the unknown. In
Freemasonry, the pillars Boaz and Jachin represent
one of the brotherhood’s most recognizable symbols
and most times is prominently featured in Masonic
art, documents, and buildings.
• In Qabbalistic teachings the pillars represent Sepiroth,
the Tree of Life and symbolize mercy and severity.
• In pop culture the pillars are sometimes used for
other reasons, other than decorative and take on an
esoteric meaning. The simple act of standing
between or passing through them symbolically
represents a transformation or initiation

Monarch Programming
• Monarch Programming is a mind-control
technique comprising elements of Satanic
Ritual Abuse (SRA) and Multiple Personality
Disorder (MPD). It utilizes a combination of
psychology, neuroscience and occult rituals to
create within the slaves an alter persona that
can be triggered and programmed by the
handlers. Monarch slaves are used by several
organizations connected with the world elite
in fields such as the military, sex slavery and
the entertainment industry.

• After being on the TV program PRODUCE 101, the 5-members group NU’EST/NU’EST W ¨rose to fame¨. Ever
since, their music videos are filled with symbolism.
• Their videos for Where u at, Dejavu, Help me & BET BET blatantly showcase many of the symbols mentioned
previously (watch them and draw your own conclusions).
• The timing is interesting…

Wow… it’s right in front of our faces…

Also it’s interesting BTS was mentioned in most of the past categories. No
wonder why they are so famous/successful….
talking about BTS…
• My sister always expressed to me her dislike of
BTS’s member V.
• At first, I didn’t understand her sentiment
towards him (I taught she was hating, he’s just
goofy). She refers to him as a devil and says there
is something sinister about this particular BTS
• When Jonghyun from SHINee ¨commited suicide¨
with carbon monoxide poisoning (by burning coal
briquettes), her disgust for him grew stronger.
• Her being a fan of Jonghyun’s music, she was
shocked by the news. So do I, I know he is not the
first idol/entertainer/actor to commit suicide.
With the way the event was unfolding, I taught it
was sad and something about the entire story
appear strange, nothing more…
• She pointed out to me, that V posted a tweet
about his dog being named Yeontan (which
directly translate to coal briquette in English) few
hours before Jonghyun’s suicide and BTS were the
first group who arrived at his funeral.

• This is Jimin and Rap Monster from
the ¨boy¨ group BTS.
• First, we can notice the overall
roundness of their faces. Their
craniums don’t appear to have
more square shape.
• Jimin’s (since we see her full head)
cranium is not deep, which a
female trait.

• Here’s Taeyeon from “Girls’“
• The sharpness and size of his
jaw is obvious. Also, we can
see clearly the angle formed
by its shape.
• His cranium has an overall
boxy/square shape.
• Like a lot of “female“
performers they hide some
of their masculine traits
behind their hair (especially
the forehead and the overall
shape of the head).
• With them the size of their
necks is very telling. They call
them long when in reality
they are strong and thick.
Kyulkyung Lisa (BLACKPINK) Hyomin (T-ARA) Momo (TWICE)

A strong neck is a male characteristic, because of the longer collarbone and

shoulders that males have, this causes the males muscles around the neck and
trapezius muscles to be more developed much more than females.

Like mentioned before, their strong wide necks is often hidden behind the length of hair, the brightness of their faces full
of make up (in a lot of cases the face being the only body part who appear feminine), chokers and bright/distracting
• Here’s Hwasa from MAMAMOO. A quick look at his features reveal his strong traits.
The boxy shape of his large head, strong cheekbones, developed neck muscles and
sharp and angled jaw.
• His large neck cannot be hidden
• He has similar physical characteristics as Jeannie Mai (American
television personality, stylist, and talk show host) and Halsey
(American singer and songwriter. )
• Strong jaw, large square-ish/boxy skull, strong cheekbones, wide
strong wide neck.
Halsey Rap Monster (BTS)

Here’s a comparison between those features and the face of your average ¨male¨ Korean idol. Pay attention to the
difference in the overall face shape and the jaw/chin.
Again, the necks….

On the left, soloist

Chung Ha (ex IOI

And on the right, it’s

Jinsoul from LOONA.
While his strong neck
and strong cheekbones
are noticeable, his jaw
is not angled.

This is because many

“female“ idols shave
their jaws and get
other plastic surgeries
especially as they age
so they keep looking as
feminine as possible.
• On the left we have Miya
from the ¨female¨ group
• He is the ¨androgynous¨
member of the group. He
wears traditionally more
masculine clothing than the
other members of his group.

• Observe his facial structure…..

• When you pay close attention,
you can see his strong

• On his face his jaw is sharp and

angled. We can see his thick and
developed neck muscles as well.

• Him being androgynous is true,

but instead of being a female
with masculine traits it’s a male
barely emulating female
Male vs Female Stare
When it comes to the differences
between males and females,
genitals, facial features & body
proportions come in mind first.

While this way of thinking has its

validity, we too often leave behind
key elements of what makes us male
or female: the energy we exude.

It can be found in our eyes (the

window to the soul). There is a clear
difference between males and
females when it comes to the type
of vibe/energy our eyes release.
• It may sound stereotypical, but males have a strong energy which the opposite of females who usually
exude a softer feminine energy.
• Even with the two examples above you may not fully understand. I will explain what I mean with Korean
Let’s compare. On the left we have Irene (Red Velvet) and on the right Chanyeol (EXO).
We can clearly sense the harsh cold energy coming out of Irene’s pupils. While they
are both supposed to have a fierce look, there is something about Chanyeol eyes
that is warmer than Irene.
Can you see it?

Here’s a picture of Chanyeol before he debuted as a singer. You can clearly see the feminine energy coming out of her.
Let’s not forget, it’s the same person who got caught wearing a bra in public.
With or without make up and fancy outfits, it’s important to pay attention to what type of energy the person is
Especially with ¨female¨ celebrities. Above it’s ¨girl¨ group Red Velvet. Notice their strong and cold stares/energy, it
has nothing to do with Chanyeol’s energy.
On the right, we have aspiring female celebrities. You can clearly see the soft
feminine energy radiating from them. While on the left, we have a female
singer. She is not as feminine as the trio, there is something off and harsh about
her compared to the picture on the right.
The truth is the trio (above) is
Jooheon, Minhyuk & I.M from the
“male" group Monsta X. They are
dressed as females (their true
The singer on the left is in fact
Harisu, an openly trans woman
(born a man).
Do you see it?
• The fans of “male“ groups call it cute or
adorable and those who dislike them
call them effeminate or gay.
• Ignoring that they are in fact staring at
a female’s energy.
Taeyong (NCT127) on all pictures.
J-Hope (BTS) Park Jihoon Winwin (NCT127)
Pay close attention to
that picture. Here we
have the “boy“ group
BTS. Next to them a
female Muslim fan.

Can you see it? All their

stares/eyes look similar
(wow she could become
a BTS member). Not only
their eyes exude the
same energy, but they
have similar facial
features as well (round
cranium, no
cheekbones, etc….)

But remember the

Male vs
Female Body
• Let’s cover the male
and female body and
their differences.
• Those are clearly
defined but to simply:
women have an
hourglass body shape
and males a T body
shape (Keep that in
• The Shoulders/Hips Ratio
• The primary difference is the
relationship of shoulder width
to hips. Women have a much
broader pelvic bone than men,
since they need to be able to
bear and give birth to a child.
• It means that in women the
hip line is the broadest part of
the body, and a narrower waist
appears by contrast, while in
men the broadest part is the
shoulder line, and the waist is
hardly different from the hips.
The overall female silhouette,
then, is an hourglass as
opposed to the male trapeze
shown below.
• A woman's waist line
is level with the belly
button but a man's
appears much lower.
This makes the torso
on a male look longer.
• Generally speaking, a
woman's body is made up
of soft rounded shapes:
breasts and buttocks but
also the fact that when not
modified, the female body
stocks more fat under the
skin. Men's bodies are more
angular and have harsher
lines when they are
• Still, note that in reasonably
slim bodies, a woman's
stomach is gently curved
and her buttocks are
rounded. A man tends to
flatness both in the
stomach and buttocks.
Here’s two example of the male body.
Muscular or skinny, their torso go straight up and down. There’s no apparent
curves and their shoulders is largest of their bodies.
• Now we have two skinny women. Regardless their body shapes, there is a clear
demarcation of their waists and they have an hourglass figure (hips being the larger or
around the same length as the shoulders) who varies in intensity. Remember the one on
the extreme left has suffered of bulimia.
let’s look at some K-Pop celebrities' bodies…
observe…… you choose….
Again, it’s Jimin (BTS).

When we take a look at her overall body

shape, we can see the roundness and her
shoulder/hips ratio. (picture on the left)

On the right, soft lines & shapes make Jimin’s

figure. It’s important to pay attention at her
round buttocks and the deep curve/arch in
her back.

Many fans of her group (BTS), often comment

on how much Jimin’s body/proportions is
"putting females to shame“ and make them
question their existence as females.

Even with a muscular torso, all the members of

her group and many “male“ idols have similar
• Here’s

Jin Jungkook J-Hope V

• Their fans are not blind.

One the left, this is the
silhouette and body shape
of Baekhyun from the
“boy“ group EXO.

Her shoulder/waist/hips
ratio creates an hourglass
figure. Her hips are bigger
than her waist and around
the same size as her

Pay attention at her hip

joint and how it’s shaped.

Wrong! In fact Baekhyun still has

the same defined hourglass
figure and wide hips.

As you can see on the picture,

there is a clear start of a wide
curve at her belly button (female
Xiumin (EXO)

The trick is that (like many

other “male“ performers),
they wear their
pants/undergarments lower
than usual (lower than waist
line) so not only it mimics the
long appearance of the male
torso and to fake the
appearance of the iliac crest
of a muscular male.
Abs are decoration. The skeleton doesn’t change.

• Also female shoulders hang
in the shape of the capital
letter A.
• Male shoulders are more
straight across due to their
stronger neck muscles,
longer arms and bigger rib
• This Jin (BTS), famous for
her shoulders.
A male’s arms are
always longer than
the arms of a female
when held to the
body, so if you
measure a woman's
arms dangling from
the side, the crotch
should stop inside

For a man, his crotch
should stop above his

Also “male“
celebrities have the
reputation of having
big voluptuous
buttocks. It’s not the
case for their
because theirs can’t

come to their size.

The first trait we can

observe on him is his wide
and sharp shoulders.

Notice how his shoulders is

the largest feature of his
body (especially compared
to his waist and hips). From
there it goes straight

Broad shoulders, no curve

and his entire body is made
of harsh lines and squares
shapes. This the physical
characteristic of not only all
BLACKPINK members but
many other idols.
Broad Shoulders.

Their large
shoulder size
cause them to
have bodies
shaped like a
capital T.
On the left, Choi Hanbit & Luna
from f(x) (on the right)

Both have large and square

shoulders (male trait) and it is
the largest feature giving them a
T-like body shape.

Not only Choi Hanbit looks like

your average girl group member,
she is an openly trans woman
(born a man) and Luna is
“female“ singer.

No Curve/Tight Pelvies/No Waist
No Waist/Tight Pelvises
All lot of “female“ entertainers are skinny.
The issue is the lack of curves on their
When you look at their body shape, you
can’t find any form of curve starting at
the belly button (female trait). Their
torsos are straight down from shoulders
to crotch/pelvis.
Also the crotch/pelvis is often small or
tight and have a rectangular shape
instead of a large round/bowl shape.

Their shoulder-hips ratio cause them to have to have bodies shapes like tube or a T. Their pelvises have a more rectangular
form than a soft rounder appearance.
SinB (GFRIEND) Yeonwoo (MOMOLAND) Jimin (BTS)

Square Bodies.

Men's bodies are more angular and have harsher lines when they are muscular or leaner causing an absence of soft
curves in the pelvic region (it’s the complete opposite for Jimin from ¨boy¨ group BTS, picture far right)
Not only because of its more rectangular pelvis, a man tends to flatness both in the stomach and the buttocks.
Clothing Choices
Like they do with their hair,
they hide their masculine
traits behind certain
Anything bottom who is
either high waisted or
flared out/larger is a
primary choice.


Moonbyul (MAMAMOO) Krystal (f(x))

• It’s to emulate female
• Since a man’s waist starts
below the belly button,
wearing a tight garments
above or at the belly
button will give an
illusion of a curved/flared
out appearance .
• As if the smallest point of
the torso was higher.
It’s trickery!

They still don’t

have any form of
real of curve. (T
body shape)
Also their wide
shoulders and
other male traits
are still there.
Yura (Girl’s Day) Soljin (9MUSES) Jennie (BLACKPINK)
Seulgi (Red Velvet)

Nayeon (TWICE) Jimin (AOA)

• Because of their bodies have any form of curves, it’s not uncommon to see them
use breast or hip/pelvic padding.
In many dances performed
by “female“ idols, they often
flare out, twist or tilt to the
side (like on the picture on
the left) their lower
back/buttocks to fake a
curvy appearance.

The soloist Hyolyn portraited

on both pictures, still has a
straight torso with no
indentation at the waist line.

Taeyeon (SNSD)

It is widely known that, on average, men are
stronger than women. A big part of the
difference is based on the amount of
muscle each gender has in their bodies.
That is, men are stronger simply because
they are typically larger; most of the reason
for greater strength is larger muscles.

Goo Hara Kim Sejeong (Gugudan) & Eunkwang (BTOB)

A male’s arms are always longer than the arms of a female when held to the body, so if you measure a
woman's arms dangling from the side, the crotch should stop inside the palms of her hands
For a man, his crotch should stop above his wrist or at the wrist.
Shoulder Blades.
• A woman’s shoulder blades
are smaller, closer together,
more angled and protruding
facing each other and closer to
the spine

• While a man’s shoulder blades

are bigger, further apart from
each other, not angled and
protruding but flatter and not
closer to the spine,

Bambam (GOT7)

This a screenshot from the variety show Stage K(JTBC). Fans from all around the world are invited to dance on their favorite song from Korean celebrities.
The image above show a Red Velvet member standing next to a group of female who danced with them.
Look at the difference in body shape and the strong masculine energy the Korean idol is exuding next to them.
Many “female“ celebrities
are praised for their
slim/skinny bodies.
Female fans look at them
like a goal to achieve when
they are in fact looking at
males with dresses and
make up.
Their fans hurt themselves
(physically and
psychologically) while trying
to obtain a similar figure.
It is impossible for a female
to obtain the skinny body of
a man. Regardless how much
she starve herself.




• Ok, you are free to
disagree with what I’m
saying. Then it confirm
that idols are pushing
for gender fluidity
based on how they
present themselves if
they are the gender
they claim to be.
• I recommend you show
a pictures of your
favorite celebrities to
your relatives or anyone
who are not UNDER
• There is an 95.9% of
chance they will say all
the ¨boy¨ group look
like girls and ¨female¨
are too skinny and have
zero curve on their

• K-Pop is successfully casting a spell on the world, especially on the way we perceive the male/female
body and features.
• What is fat? What is skinny? What is dark? What is light? What is feminine? What is masculine?
• It’s influencing the minds of many and people defend the negative sides of the industry.
On my side, I can’t deny there is some
songs/artists I enjoy without guilt.

But this ride on the K-Pop train left me

exhausted… Things have become more and more
problematic and certain bad aspect of this media
more flagrant.

I’ve came to term that I don’t need this type of

toxicity in my life, especially when K-Pop started
influencing my reality, the way I see certain
people and how I invest my time.

For those who made it to end of the presentation

and disagree, I don’t hate you (chill)

V & Jimin (BTS) One thing is sure, K-Pop is more than just music.

presentation was a
long and challenging
experience but it

Korean pop. This is
