I see all of you across the forum mentioning you’re listening to GFriend so I’m expecting a flood of ballots soon, yes?
Don’t let us flop!

Got to work, pulled up the playlist, pressed Shuffle to get ready to bop and it starts with fucking Distance.
This happens to me often - I get home so tired and then Distance comes on and just soothes my soul, making me shed tears of joy from its harmonica infecting my ear canals and prompting a quick dissociation episode.Got to work, pulled up the playlist, pressed Shuffle to get ready to bop and it starts with fucking Distance.
Okay… If you promise to send us a ballot we will consider changing the deadline a little bit. Right @savilizabeths?Got to work, pulled up the playlist, pressed Shuffle to get ready to bop and it starts with fucking Distance.
I wanted to give each song at least 4 passes before settling on a score since so much of this is new to me and I didn't want all my scores to be first listen impressions. But this looming deadline -- sheeeeet. Anyway, I will definitely be submitting a ballot! Just need some more time with some of these songs.
Took a peek back at their first few release dates in General thread, and... it was truly crickets fff. I realize it was a different time, and a different (worse) subforum, but the lack of impact just seems bananas now.
Obviously the school trilogy has been (rightfully) reevaluated an all-time great opening salvo, but then you also had stuff like
and... I don't know, the muted reaction just boggles the mind. I choose to believe we've come far enough that we'd lose our marbles if a group showed this level of quality right out the gate!
Anyways, all that to say: I'm still steeping myself in their world awhile longer before submitting – but I'm having a wonderful time with it!
I was just filibustering to get @junglefish off my back about taking so long to submit, but thanks for contributing some actual substance to the conversation!I think there's a conversation to be had with how cute, pure, bright, whatever you want to call it, concepts being perceived as cringey or uncool by international fans which is why after the big k-pop boom the current generation is more or less specifically catered to western fans with the growing amount of BLACKPINK-lite songs. Something to do with making k-pop more westernized and less "Asian" since cute is commonly associated with Asian pop music (which is a MASSIVE misconception). Look at what has happened with Weeekly and their upcoming comeback. I don't know if I'm making any sense here.
God I know this is gonna be done so dirty… I’m already mad.
