#2274646 BoA unfollowed SMENT

I pretty much agree with most people's points about the whole EXO/Kris situation. I'm a big fan of the group, and I realize it's hard when someone who you consider "family" decides they want to leave. I know I don't feel exactly the way they do, and I, nor anyone else will know exactly what they're thinking. It does seem selfish and irresponsible for him to leave in the middle of promotions, but maybe that's what he wants? The group will suffer, but maybe he sees it as a necessary side-effect of getting back at SM? Taking their top group and basically tearing them down will lose a lot of money, and they'll be haunted by it for a long time. It's hard for me to decide who to support: I will support 11-member EXO because they've worked hard, they have a lot of ambition and drive, and I think they're an awesome group. I'll also support Kris because I believe everyone has a right to do what they want and express themselves how they want without being stifled by someone above them. And if terminating his contract is the best solution he sees, then so be it. I'll be sad to see one of my favorite groups split, but Kris is just looking after his best interests, which obviously no longer lie in the group.

 

Supposedly Kris joined SM to be an actor, yet they stuck him in a group, and turned down multiple acting jobs without his input. It must have hurt seeing two other members get acting roles (D.O in a Korean drama, Luhan in a Chinese movie).

 

And as for artists following their own label on social media, I feel like that's pretty redundant. Like, "OMG A NEW SUPER JUNIOR ALBUM!?!? lol jk I knew about that a month ago."




#2261858 BoA Winter Ballad Collection 2013

It's an interesting collection... but it would be so much easier just to make a playlist of my own. If she has old unreleased ballads, they should release those.

Besides, she doesn't look dressed for winter in the least bit. XD

I totally agree. This needs to be stopped! It's a violation of our First Amendment rights, first and foremost. And it's not like we're being paid every time someone happens to see our signatures/avatars. It would/should only be a problem if that was true. There's no laws against the use of those images unless (1) you're getting paid when people see them, or (2) someone has asked you not to use it because they have the rights to the image, and you refuse to take it down or remove it. You can blame the record company, etc. for releasing these images on the internet.

And don't even get me started on websites being shut down... what would the internet be for then? No Facebook/Twitter/MySpace/other social media sites will get people upset as it is, and then the threat of job loss and screwing with our foreign relations... I'm shocked none of these politicians have children of their own telling them how bad this is, and will end up if it passes.

And if I lose my daily K-Pop/J-Pop related news... I'll go crazy! Oh well... I guess we'll get the final verdict when it's finally voted on on the 24th.... :(

EDIT : And one thought about losing YouTube... sure, tons of people are illegally uploading videos/other copyrighted materials, but if you eliminate the entire website, you're also making the people who are actually legally uploading their material (i.e. record labels, people's self-taken videos, etc.) suffer.
