As much as people dislike Tiffany due to her recent influx in screentime, I’m gonna defend the girl a bit.
My favorite members are SeoHyun and HyoYeon, and I will defend them till the ends of the earth, but they don’t have what Tiffany has. In fact, Tiffany has something NONE of the girls have (besides MAYBE SooYoung). She has the ability to hype the crowd during performances, unlike the other members who simply do the choreography and sing their parts. She is much like YG’s CL, G-Dragon, and Taeyang. She always puts more into a performance than she really has to. She yells with the crowd, she chants during instrumental portions. And whilst most people don’t like this sitting at home watching on their computer, the fans at the concert are grateful to her.
The second reason I’ll defend this girl is for something I REALLY respect. She always talks about the other members in a positive way. She doesn’t just say shit like “I love all my members” like the other girls. If she’s in an interview and Hyoyeon isn’t there, she might say “ah, Hyoyeon would do this well.” Or “Taeyeon’s hands were shaking during an interview!” She only really makes an interview about her if the question is directed solely to and about her, and even then, she tries to include someone else.
Tiffany you ain’t my fave but you do yo thang, girl.

"When she opened the bandages to disinfect her wounds, I was really taken aback. Before I saw her actual wounds, I thought ‘she’s probably just in moderate pain’, but the skin underneath the bandage looked as if it was melting from a burn.
I didn’t know what to say (because of the language barrier) and it frustrated me to the point where I got angry because I was just helplessly watching her suffer in pain while doing nothing. It was painful enough for me just from watching her so I can’t imagine the tremendous amount of pain she was going through.. and to think that she didn’t drop a tear because she knew it’ll only hurt more if she did. It tore my heart apart.”
With the recent influx of sexy concept within the K-pop industry, many K-pop fans have more or less involuntarily slipped into the concept of slut- and body-shaming. This post is not trying to point at any of the people who said negative things - but much rather a reminder that statements like those are absolutely not okay. It’s an appeal to you not to think like maybe your bias does. Everyone makes mistakes, we learn with time. But next time you see a girl group dancing in revealing clothes or a picture of a female idol who put on some weight, think twice before you post a comment. Misogyny is a very real thing in K-pop, so don’t be a part of it!
