I am a sucker.
I’d add a “sucker for XXX,” but I think we all know that I’m just a sucker in general. For the purposes of this post though, I’m specifically talking about the fact that I’m a sucker for a musical survival show and for an underdog story. Even though I know the outcome and even though I know I’m grossed out by Seungri and have an almost tangible anger toward YG, I’m finally watching MIXNINE. I’m not doing it because I like to be upset, I’m doing it because there are some very specific idols I want to become more familiar with. I want to absorb their origin stories and survival shows are a very good way to do that (in a super edited and contrived way).
