To all of the people who are saying Kai could’ve said no to the dreads:
DO YA’LL KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SM ENTERTAINMENT????
OF COURSE HE COULDN’T “SAY NO” IT’S NOT HIS FUCKING DECISION
HE SAID THAT HE HATED THE CORNROWS DURING WOLF-ERA AND FELT UNCOMFORTABLE WEARING THEM.
DID SM LISTEN TO HIM??- HELL TO THE NO
SO WHAT MAKES YOU THINK ANYTHING HE SAYS REGARDING HIS HAIR WILL MAKE SM LISTEN TO HIM THIS TIME??
OH SEHUN HIMSELF SAID THAT THE STYLISTS NORMALLY DO NOT LET HIM DYE HIS HAIR THE COLOR HE WANTS TO
(it was in an old interview but its relevant now).
SM hair stylists are obviously extremely colorist and gave Jongin that hairstyle for an unfortunate reason that is wrong on so may fucking levels.(and if u don’t know the reason thn pls message me)
But Jongin can’t do anything but work with it because its not like he’s in any authority to disagree with it, and he gets paid for it either way.
Like do y'all think Exo would srsly be out here preforming in bright pink suits and elf costumes if they wanted to?? Ya’ll think Byun Baekhyun wants to be walking around with a striped mullet? No grown man wants to do that, but they HAVE TO CUZ IT’S SM.
SM is a notoriously Strict and awful company, and they have prohibited idols from having a say on numerous things. If you want to hate on someone, hate on SM and their warped and racist/colorist ideologies.
We all know that Jongin of ALL Kpop Idols is NOT racist or colorist– he has experienced that same discrimination against himself firsthand ever since his debut, and has demonstrated time and time again that he is in fact not ignorant.
But anyways, I’m tired of this bs against kai. Just cause y'all hate exo and r threatened or some other dumb shit, doesn’t mean u should be attacking jongin or making things up about what he can and can’t do, when your not even an exo stan in the first place.
LIKE, YA’LL REALLY NEED TO THINK WITH YOUR BRAINS ONCE IN A WHILE
(and yes I’m a black exo-l btw so trust me ik the pain)
and here’s a part of sm’s contract !!! artists have no say in anything regarding mv’s and pics (taken from here)
DAMN I knew SM wasn’t shit BUT DAMN
Some of y'all don’t even care about jongin that deep. What really bothers you is that people are getting in the way of your fun and your enjoying the teaser/comeback.
I can’t believe the small group I decided to stan, who couldn’t afford to buy high end clothing, who weren’t able to eat out with the pd’s often because they weren’t making enough money, who didn’t have enough money to rent a car for an mv so had to borrow their managers, who were so broke they often couldn’t buy enough meat/food for 7 people are now selling out venues, holding their fanmeets in some of the biggest places, wearing some of the most luxurious clothing, breaking records for the most views for a kpop video in 15 and 24 hours, hiring nearly 50 extras for an mv, BLOWING UP CARS IN AN MV, gifting each other 1.1k $$$$$$ SWEATERS FROM GUCCI, BREAKING INTO THE US CHARTS, SELLING OVER 500,000 COPIES OF WINGS IN THE FIRST MONTH, SURPASSING THEIR TOTAL ALBUM SALES
and the fact that they have remained so humble and grateful for everything they have worked so hard to receive makes me even more happy to be a bts stan
