The real reason Brad and Norm love the GSL

I hate how obvious it is that whatever K-Pop performers they get are just lip-syncing...badly. For the most part at least, I saw some IU stuff where she was actually singing.

I knew it.

Girls Day sucks.  They edged out Bigbang as #1 in the music video thingy.  Bigbang is obviously superior (And doesn't lipsync for the mostpart)
  

  
Also if you don't like k-pop you can't really enjoy Korean Starcraft events as k-pop is the syrup to Starcraft's waffles and is constantly featured.

Also, basically every girl's k-pop group lipsyncs, but not usually that badly.

@sixghost:  WHAT!
Kpop might be the greatest genre of music because you can't understand the lyrics. So you just go with the beat.

I'd rather have to sit and watch them than Black Eyed Peas.

Mmm K-Pop.

I particularly found the casting of Tastosis a bit lackluster... take for example Game 5, when MKP cancelled hi Starport and they didn't even comment on it. -_- The Korean commentators on the other hand were all over that matter and were even providing some good analysis of it.

Heck yes.  K-Pop is better than any pop released in North America in the last 10 years.
Also, the hat GD is wearing is amazing.

Whatever it is its more tolerable to american pop music that is basically trying to poorly rip off EU electronic at this point : /

usually not by choice they don't. a lot of times shows/venues just have really bad mics. i'm not sure why they didn't even let them try, like their mics were turned on for them to talk, and turned off again right after. they're actually pretty good live

True enough.  Though from what I've noticed nearly every group has the track running in the background but sing over it, but then when they do a crazy dance move or something you can hear the vocal track playing.  It's still way better than most American pop groups can do.

In the music shows, pretty much no one lipsyncs (easy to tell), but I'm guessing they lipsynched this one, like Secret did for GSL March, because there's so much shit that can go wrong in a live stadium show. American artists do this as well. 

And Big bang is awesome, but I didn't really like their newest album. The older stuff was better.

I had no opinion on k-pop til the GSL finals forced me to watch Secret perform this:
  

  And thus, my whole worldview was put into question.
