“Everyone else is doing it, so we will too”

In the initial excitement of EXO’s grand unveiling of their new promotional social media accounts, it was made known by many news outlets that there was twitter activity showing up on a trendsmap in North Korea.

While it may have appeared to be a worthy piece of news to report, your Admins would like to explain why we feel it was dangerous for our fellow EXOLs.

Kai, we love you. Please read this message. Black KPop stans this is for you too.

*Upon reading the entire thread*

Pisces: Mmmk now I need to send a letter today, this week, last year, when Wolf first dropped. My stomach dropped earlier before I read this & I felt nauseous. Now I know why.

Aqua: This seriously hurt my heart. I need to watch the video. I need to see it for myself. Also, it’s sad that we have to rely on translations from others who aren’t exactly vetted. I need to learn the language.

Pisces: Same.

Aqua: He’s about to get a lot of backlash now. At 1st we defended him because we thought it was the stylist’s decision but now… We have to say something and there are no excuses that are acceptable.

Pisces: No one should excuse it. If he is looking for our responses, then he is willing to hear what we have to say. Just needs to be good avenue to reach him. He watched the reaction videos. So he wants to know what aeris think. The fact that he keeps mentioning his hair shows that he knows it may potentially upset ppl like the first time. I will hold him accountable as I do everyone else.

Aqua: The Wolf era hairstyle ppl just didn’t like it. He needs to hear the REAL reason why ppl are upset

Pisces: Yes he does. He is willing to hear it

Aqua: Another thing I wonder about is what are they watching and reading? Something about the backlash other idols have gotten about this should pop up.

The Billboard Music Awards Aftermath aka ‘Did y’all read that Rolling Stone article’?

First of all, cheers and congratulations to BTS and ARMYs for their social media award at this year’s BBMAs!!! The members were well received and it was a special moment for them and their fans. Vogue crowning V as Best Dressed for the evening? Win!!!!

Vogue direct quote “The seven-member boy band is a global K-pop sensation, boasting an enormous and devoted international following; in fact, Billboard extended the invitation after an online fan campaign. For their first U.S. awards show, the members smartly stepped out in a suite of sleek black suits from Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello, each one slightly tweaked to showcase their individual personality. Perhaps the most fashion-forward dresser was V, who paired a cropped pinstripe jacket and polka-dot dress shirt with loose-fit pants—a bold choice that he pulled off with ease.”

Rolling Stone direct quote “….K-pop boy band BTS humbly and excitedly accepted the award. The Korean septet made up of Rap Monster, Jimin, Suga, J-Hope, Jin, V and Jungkook made their American red-carpet debut last night”

Story is done right? Let’s all toast with our tea cups and have some mocha bread?

Maybe…until we and the rest of the KPop stans out there read the rest of the Rolling Stone article written by Jeff Benjamin.
