Would this choreography be criticized if it was a girl group instead?

Netizens discuss the disparity between how boy groups and girl groups are treated, based on provocative choreography.

Does a double standard exist in Korea between boy and girl idol groups? Netizens claim that certain actions, when performed by boy groups, are accepted by the public, while the same actions would be criticized if they were performed by girl groups.

Lately in the K-pop industry, there has been a trend of pointing out the alleged “bad attitudes” and “rude behaviors” of girl groups. But for boy groups, many fans protect their artists despite their similar actions.

There are also choreographies that male idols dance to that might not be accepted if girl groups were to do the same dance.


Originally posted on Pann, netizens discuss a male idol choreography that would not be accepted if a girl group was doing the same thing.

Titled “Not Criticized Because They Are Male Idols,” here is the direct translation of the post and comments below.


Their chests are shown while doing this choreography due to their tank-tops. hahahaha”

[ +223 / -74] Is it only me that is kind of bothered by this dance even if it is done by a male group?

[ +203 / -171] What? There is a dance like this? They look so cheap..

[ +107 / -34] I’m not dissing girl groups but they would have been criticized and cussed at if they showed their stomachs like that
