Underrated K-weens: The Reunion Rank ✫ 13th ✫

Discussion in 'K-pop' started by Squashua, Jul 1, 2017.


  1. It's been almost a year since the Unappreciated Battleground pushed KPJ to the edge


    AND YET


    the flops just keep coming~~

    Welcome one & all to this mini rate acting as one last round-up of those Underappreciated Unnies we all hold so dear before that Revenge of the Flops Season 2 I promised kekeke.


    As you all know in K-Pop, one day you're in and most days no one buys your records. This is a hard lesson to be learnt by all the female rookies out there who aren't SM, JYP or YG. in the last 12 months since the Underrated Rate kicked off we have seen almost all of our bop-heavy, success-minor alumni groups have another crack at the whip.

    And guess what - IT'S TIME TO JUDGE THEM ALL OVER AGAIN.

    THE RANK-OFF

    So this time, just for fun, please rank via PM the 18 songs by former Underrated acts below from 1 (your fave) to 18 (the floppiest) and, based on averages, we'll have a little perusal over what actually happened to them all since we ripped them apart last year. Going for a rank format because I imagine a number of these will get a chance to be scored in the 2KPOP17 rate at the end of the year (or have already in the '16 edition).
    This is more like a mid-year catch-up~


    Did they learn from our roasting or did they flop even harder than before?
    Will OMG be triumphant again or will a group that didn't even make the Finals rise to victory?

    Surprise binches - it's Sawori, now a certified Korean variety host (on a never watched cable network):

    [​IMG]

    Let's do a brief reconnect with all the unnies from last time - your mini challenge is to give us your tale in three brief sentences ladies:

    [​IMG]

    DAL*SHABET
    Felt our working week sorrow, Subin sl*yed ha solo gig, have been quiet ever since.

    LABOUM
    Became the Queens of Tteokbokki, snatched a #1 album, earned a music show win for their cashing-out troubles.

    NINE MUSES
    Lost more members, A became the full 9M, unleashed a seductive banger to prove they still had it.

    APRIL
    On the verge of a breakthrough in January, was already somewhat flopping again come May.

    STELLAR
    Became the face of Makestar, earned serious coin, spent it on sacrificial tools & Minhee's crystal collection.

    OH! MY GIRL
    Attended every variety show & temporary group going, blew up their MV set, didn't do as well as A-ing.

    CLC
    Cloned HyunA, went baseball bat shopping, none of Korea cared.


    [​IMG]

    WASSUP
    Label bust-ups aplenty, Nada was not having it, went full running man retro

    MELODY DAY
    Noticed ballads weren't working, became Wonder Girls tribute band, went back to ballads

    RANIA
    Mess.

    BRAVE GIRLS
    Invented stools, trademarked body-rolls, Korea has no taste.

    HELLO VENUS
    Finally got a budget, tried to be classy, got ignored.

    SONAMOO
    Well D-ana is in Girls Next Door if that counts?

    LADIES' CODE
    Kept up the glossy sadcore, promised us a third part, we're still waiting.

    *****

    But what about those that DIDN'T attend? Well:

    We sadly said goodbye to Rainbow, Spica and ChoColat as they either disbanded or went on indefinite hiatus (re: disbanded) - probably because of how savage y'all were last time.

    Tahiti are AWOL but Ari is living ha fantasy of being in a successful group thanks to THE [email protected] tv series.

    Fiestar haven't mentioned a comeback but Yezi's been in full spitfire rap pharaoh mode.

    4TEN / Wanna.B / BESTie / Purfles are missing, presumed searching for coin in their respective company dungeons.

  4. I missed the first rate cause I was a flop K-Pop fan at the time but I'm definitely here for this one. It's so hard to rank them though, I already have four contenders for my #1 dddd.
     
  5. I'm doing this, because I already know who I'm putting in the flop category.

    I'm gonna be THAT girl
     
  6. This makes me ridiculously happy.

    Also,
    you shady ape.
     
  7. They were going to spring for Jeonyul's missing glitterpump from "Sting" but they found it among the several pairs Hyemi mysteriously needed to wear in the 4Muses' "Remember" forest scene.

    There's always next year...
     
  12. Ok but how are you to judge Oh My Girl with a Kimberley gif though?????
     
    ajmkv, D is for Danger!, Ceir and 6 others like this.
  13. Wait, has KPSC been cancelled? And is this the replacement? NOOOOOOO although I love both rates.

    Also, when's the deadline, @Squashua unnie?

  14. Not even slightly! This is just a fun little side Rate to do along with KPSC (which kicks off this Sunday/next Monday so anticipate ha~~).

    I would say end of July maybe? But then again I know there's also the Sistar rate due for around that time so logistics wise it might get moved about.
     
  15. Just don't forget to harass me to send my scores, okay? xoxo
