Talk about major color explosion.
I was lurking around forums today because I had nothing better to do and I was a bit surprised about the violent reactions towards SHINee and 4minute’s “joint stage” on July 18 at MBC’s Show! Music-Core.
First of all, I was more outraged at what Taemin and Minho were wearing. And second, what “joint stage?” 4minute was there for like, a minute!
Here are some of the reactions I found… uhm, interesting:
“Is 4 minute like using boy groups to boost their popularity? First 2PM, now this!”
“They were so awkward together… it kinda ruined the whole thing. 4minute didn’t dance it right!”
“I REALLY don’t like this… it was NOT necessary AT ALL! SHINee and 4Minute don’t have a connection each other,, I bet they don’t even know well each other!”
“4Minute girls are NOT good enough compared to SHINee! They looked cheap!!!”
“This not a good collaboration! I hope there won’t be any more shows like this..”
“I think it’s pretty inappropriate.”
“Onew does not look happy dancing with that girl.”
“Taemin put his hands on the shoulders of the maknae of 4minute at the end!! Nooooo!”
Uhm… Okay. LOL. Exaggeration much? The pairs were at arms’ length beside each other and kept their distance, and Idunno… I thought it was an alright collaboration, nothing special though. I think the idea of joint stages is to make performances a little more interesting, I mean, the artists dance and sing to their singles almost every day at every other music channel.
I don’t mean to compare, but I can’t help it. Different circumstances and age issues suspended—people’s reactions towards the collaboration between the Wonder Girls and Big Bang was a huge difference. They were even affectionately called “Wonderbang.” And they performed together for SEVERAL times, whereas this joint stage happened only once. (At least for now)
The pairings got so much love. There may have been jealous fits here and there but not as much as SHINee’s + 4minute.
I mean, it’s not like SHINee were doing this:
Or worse, THIS:
On the flip side, I do understand the “outraged” reactions because SHINee has always been known to be “pure, innocent and wholesome.” Plus 4minute is a new girl group, so their every move is bound to get criticized. And every time noona fangirls see Taemin they can’t help but get overprotective.
But seriously. What was the big fuss all about?
