Posted in: Fan outcry over K-pop star's date highlights 'harsh' industry rules See in context

I don't think the female Kpop performers make enough money for this. They are always working for the image of their group and management company. They are famous and might be lucky to get some endorsements but much of the public events they do are probably outside of their contract

Posted in: Musk loses fight to delay Twitter’s lawsuit against him See in context

JTC the $1B is a penalty for either side - there is no clause to allow backing out. And Musk agreed to very limited disclosure/ diligence so bailing on bots won't win in court. Likely the judge will require a settlement at least $20B and TSLA will sink

People said the same things about Elvis too. And the BTS members may look feminine on stage but they are very fit strong guys and will look just like everyone else with a military haircut. Korea would not be better off without 2 years of BTS working

But no blame for the Afghan government... oh there is no Afghan government anymore? Maybe that's actually the problem. And that isn't Biden's fault. The Russian embassy in Kabul is still open, guarded by the Taliban.
