kntm has been bullshit lately, just accept the girls are shit and need to leave (sans gibbeum) last weeks elimination was the biggest bullshit ever im still angry tbfh, theyre just making up ‘faults’ up to eliminate guys kmt

Q: Am I the only one who thinks Shin Jaehyuk went home too soon? First off, the photos they chose of him during his last episode, there was no possible way he could have looked any better. They told him to stand still for the one on the ground, and then told him he looked too still. For the shot on the tower, Jieun was in the forefront, so of course all eyes were on her. Also, he was in the bottom two for the 1st time against Jian who'd been there multiple times...I dunno. What say you?


Thank you thank you thank youuu!!! I agree 100%. That whole episode was bullshit. The concept was genderless, right? They made it seem super important that they models stay true to that concept. Then WHY put Jieun in a FLOWY DRESS and praise her when she made it look beautiful and feminine? And eliminate Jaehyuk when you put him in an awkward position in the air and then tell him to stand still on the ground and look genderless… Jaehyuk fulfilled the concept better than Jieun in my opinion, but the judges thought he didn’t know how to “angle his face” so he got eliminated.

Jian did poorly and really should have gone home then. Her entire form was ugly and she couldn’t sacrifice her first “kiss” for the photoshoot boo hoo. Yongsoo also could have gone home then. Didn’t he have trouble even remembering where the camera was? What the heck kind of model is that…

And you’re right, that was Jaehyuk’s first time in the bottom two but the judges decided to be unforgiving. Yes, he was one of the worst for that shoot, but he had a lot going for him unlike some other contestants. So yes, in conclusion, I strongly feel that he was gone too soon and that his elimination in that episode was a poor choice.

"   But to me, my mother’s English is perfectly clear, perfectly natural. It’s my mother tongue. Her language, as I hear it, is vivid, direct, full of observation and imagery. That was the language that helped shape the way I saw things, expressed things, made sense of the world. Lately, I’ve been giving more thought to the kind of English my mother speaks. Like others, I have described it to people as ‘broken” or “fractured” English. But I wince when I say that. It has always bothered me that I can think of no way to describe it other than “broken,” as if it were damaged and needed to be fixed, as if it lacked a certain wholeness and soundness. I’ve heard other terms used, “limited English,” for example. But they seem just as bad, as if everything is limited, including people’s perceptions of the limited English speaker.   "
