    Pengsu IS grotesque. And I disagree that journalists should always follow laws. They should have morals and journalistic ethics that prevent them from making things up for views or ratings, but if they broke in and found out BTS really was in dispute with BigHit or had been getting an unfair share of their massive profits, we would all be glad they exposed it.

    The Pengsu thing is not abuse by any means, it's just kinda strange. I don't know anything about Pengsu but based on this video it seems like a Korea specific phenomenon that likely won't become popular at least among western culture simply because it won't be relatable. I have no problem with it but I just don't understand the comparison, it's like comparing a chef to a dancer, there simply isn't a connection ya know??? Can't multiple things just be popular at the same time? I'm confused

    The big reason for the backslash on it was probably because BTS is big in a lot of stuff important and music unlike this character who is not in the same line of stuff or music type. When I hard of it I was angry but I do wish they would use them in a getting there name more out in the world then just for the likes

    Kmedias are constantly trying to bring down kpop idols just for the fame and more money out of it...Kpop idols are one of the main reasons why Korea’s economy is booming in the first place so they should just be grateful and take videos of kpop idols achieving things in life😤🤦‍♀️💜dragging others down just means your one of the worst human beings, especially if that person hasn’t done anything to you or you don’t know them🥺😞

    Pengsu is the type of Asian comedy I don't get. It really looks grotesque and the humor is in the whole age thing in Korean culture which I think even other Asian cultures don't really get. At least it trolls some of the ARMYs.

    I'm on edge with 'recognisability' part because wbk Korean media has always tried to downplay BTS's success particularly in recent happenings. So any _recognisable_ part about BTS's name can be used obviously against their image which where I'd draw the line to whether they're using their name for clicks and views their name for clout without knowing the consequence it can bring to their public image.

  42. Nyanko


    개월 전

    That pingsu article was just to get clicks. Legit Danny even said if he was the journalist he'd be happy if it got hate comments or whatever because it got attention and literally that's what the purpose of using BTS's name is for. It's to leverage that visibility no matter the consequence when their name isn't properly used for equal debate. And you could argue *_that's just how the media is_* well then where does that line get drawn?

    They can say Aliee is Korea's Beyonce but can they say Aliee is bigger and better than Beyonce? yes or not they're at least both SINGERS as David stated and the comparison is worthy of comparing because they based on the cultural impact and musicality that makes them both worthy of analogy. But is it too much of a stretch? That's the same thing with how BTS's name is currently used by the media. Are the Korean media using that 'stretch' because of desperation of clicks and views or some journalist actually put in the work to factually provide sufficient evidence about two EQUAL PARTIES for whatever the matter is objectively.

    Honestly, I'm just too tired of media using BTS' name every fcking time for clout without even a single fact researched about them. The fact that they just put BTS' name in every single issue even if it has nothing to do with BTS just infuriates me. Journalism? I rarely find journalists nowadays who have the integrity to get to know the subject they are writing about, to do research, to proofread, and to check the facts before publishing their articles. Copy-paste articles are not journalism. It's NOT how journalists SHOULD work. I understand that they have to search the internet for popular topics, but at least make it your own and do some fcking research! If they have the time to copy-paste some articles on the internet, at least have some time to research if the things written on it are right!

    The article about Pengsu and BTS is “abusing” how popular BTS is to get any kind of attention, rather then actually being rude and dishonest like the first article. It’s annoying but not that bad. This is the first time I’ve heard of Pengsu. I must be living under a rock or something. Maybe Pengsu will get to meet BTS now. That would be fun.
