I recently read the article on arama about Utada and her fiance releasing statements about their marriage. I was near tears towards the end. I can’t mention enough how happy I am to see another human being so in love and ready to start another chapter in her life. To me, it’s a beautiful thing to watch something so precious manifest to someone I’ve admired for so long.
I’m still a bit worried about something, though.
Ever since the turn of the year, there has been an uproar among the K-pop net-fandom(as there always is). A plethora of girl groups have deemed it fit to comeback with overly suggestive and sexual manifestations. Skin-tight black outfits are now the trend, my friend. But, the question(s) here is(are), what’s so wrong about it? If it’s just a trend, is the internet just being overly sensitive about it or is there really a problem here?
What could possibly be another explanation for Berryz Koubou’s choreography for the past, like, year?

Sometimes, I forget that our idols, singers, and musicians are sexual beings. I sometimes forget that they’re all meant to fall in love, get married, and start a family. I got whiplash when our favorite AKB predator announced her pregnancy. And now, my neck is broken by the fact that Hikaru Utada is set to get married.
