So, there's this kpop song /watch?v=yJDc5vYw_UE and a lot of people like it and stuff so when i look up for the lyrics(i'm not korean) ... I found it's quite horrible. It talk about a guy with abusive/psycho manners who has a crush on someone, but in a romantic way. Don't you think this could endanger people's lives? like, it could reinforce abuse behavior in perpetrator and make a victim feel bad about addressing her/his abuser

"It talk about a guy with abusive/psycho manners who has a crush on someone, but in a romantic way." Imma have to pop your last bubble of hope. I’m not even going to put effort in trying to interpret this song differently than ‘rape song’.

I’ll just pretend I never read any of those comments because these kpop fans are indeed reinforcing abusive behavior by calling the lyrics ‘dark, mysterious and exciting;’

  • 사람들은 믿지 않을걸 내가 이럴리 없다고 (people won’t believe I did this) -> silencing and shaming of victims
  • 끝내버리면 될 줄 알았니 나를 잘못 봤어
    잘 해줄게 알아 가봐 날 좀 싫다고 하지마 진심이 아니잖아 you’re gonna like this play (basically saying that he won’t leave her alone and she’ll have to like it) -> denying ‘no means no’ and literally reinforcing abusive behavior
  • 너를 사랑해서 그래 (because I love you) -> denying abusive behavior
  • 로맨틱하게 바라보면 받아줄까
    목소릴 질러대면 받아줄까 로맨틱 스릴 (he’ll continue no matter what she tries to do) -> again, denying ‘no means no’ and again, silencing her

That’s just written rape. I sincerely hope they’ll get called out on this and please if you ever come across a fan who approves of this theme or these kind of lyrics call them out on it, because this is kpop gone wrong. Shaming rape victims, reinforcing and romanticizing abusive behavior and the silencing of victims is all in this song.
