One K-Pop boy band is receiving harsh criticism from Korean internet users for staging a comeback under the guise of “Japanese” culture. Boy band With the release of their sixth mini album, “History Of Kingdom: PartVI. Mujin,” KINGDOM is preparing for a comeback.
The return idea for KINGDOM adopts an unmistakably “Japanese” aesthetic, as evidenced by traditional Japanese clothes and Japanese-style architecture, props, and more, as seen in the group’s teaser content. The boy group’s most recent video album almost verifies that the Japanese shinobi (ninja) concept has had a significant influence.
Check out some of the most recent trending news:
The idea struck many K-netizens as just “ridiculous”:
“Guess this group never intends on becoming popular in Korea ever…”
“The one concept that a Korean artist should never attempt, and you wen’t there. Well, bye.”
“What am I looking at. I want to throw up.”
“I have no idea who they are, they must be some nobody flops and now I know for sure that I will never ever learn their names or have an ounce of interest in them.”
“Don’t even call them a ‘K-Pop group’ anymore, it’s a disgrace.”
“If you’ve run out of ideas, just disband…”
“Oh, KINGDOM, was it? I’ll remember that name, the worst K-Pop group in history lol.”
“Let groups like this go on thinking they can leech off of the industry, and K-Pop is doomed.”
Furthermore, some even accused the group of “intentional noise marketing,” commenting,
“They’re doing the most to get any kind of attention… even if it’s the worst kind of negative attention.”
“Just curious… are you crazy???”
“Even for noise marketing, this is just ruinous.”
“This is the most attention this group has probably ever received since debut. Too bad they’re going to disband pretty soon.”
“A company that comes up with this kind of terrible idea for noise marketing doesn’t deserve to be in this business.”
“It would have been much better for everyone if you’d just stayed the flops that you are instead of pissing off everyone with this stupidity…”
“Selling your own country for a second of attention…”
