Hot & Cold is going to be the Pride song of 2023. I can feel it.

The LOONA situation is so sad and messy and yet…it’s making me excited to see where they go with this era nn. They all look incredible, I think actually seeing a promo photo of them is making everything feel a bit more real.
 
I still don’t know how they’re gonna make a fan sign happen when 9 out of 11 are already refusing to post on socials and chat with paid fans on the fan app.

The boycott situation with Loona's comeback makes me feel weird. Most companies are always mistreating their groups in some way every comeback and i think many fans know that but the difference with BBC is that they were dumb enough to expose too much of their mistreatment. Why didn't (G)i-dle fans boycott their first comeback after Soojin was kicked??
Participating in this boycott makes me feel like an hypocrite. Maybe it's true that BBC's antics are worse than other companies, but still, we don't even know what's happening behind the scenes on each company...

Anyway, sorry for the little meltdown ddd

Not to be shady but y’all Orbits breaking resolve with the FIRST couple teaser images is a bit… well. Yeah I don’t think anyone here is going to actually buy physicals or support the comeback with actual money but still…
I get what you’re saying but it’s still the girls we know and love promoting, would boycotting not actually weaken their chances of paying off their label/moving to another? Like you said I won’t be buying but, unless it’s explained to me why it would be wrong to do otherwise, I’ll definitely be streaming.

They are never going to make the money they need to buy off their contract if they haven't even gotten paid dddddd they are not gonna pay their way out of the company, they are going to sue their way out of it.

CUBE was (for once) smart about Soojin’s dismissal. (G)I-DLE’s comeback was a full year after her departure and in the interim they promoted their most popular member Soyeon with a solo mini album and what helped was that Soyeon did all the work for them… songwriting and producing… coming up with a concept… they didn’t have to do much but approve it. What BBC is doing is a mess and costing them more money and probably putting the girls in more debt.

I actually think the boycott is doing pretty well??

Is this true, @Vixen unnie? Kinda gagged tbh FFFFFFFF!!

I think every fan in favor of the boycott wish the numbers were even lower, but yes, it's obvious that even if not all Orbits agree on the subject, the effects of a boycott are showing through one way or another. Twitter engagement is down, YouTube engagement is down too, Instagram is still doing well all things considered, but I doubt that necessarily correlates with sales. Korean Orbits pretty much refuse to boycott, but there's like 7 of them so who cares - oop! (No but seriously it does annoy me because they're actually the first to boycott everything in other circumstances, but now they're being little binches).

Huhhhh now why are the Korean Orbits not boycotting? Not even the big Twitter accounts? This is incredibly disappointing and I hope Hyunjin drags them on Fab or something.
