For those of you that joined CR after 2012, there was something great about CR forum that you won't see today. Back in 2006-2010, there used to be a lot of serious and interesting threads about Asian entertainment outside of anime/manga like they did back in 2007-2010, I mean let me show you:

2009 thread-SMAP member Tsuyoshi Kusanagi ARRESTED?!

Most Handsome Korean Actor

Male Japanese/Korean Stars Who Look Like Girls

2008 thread-Favorite Arashi's member

2007 thread-Kat-tun VS Arashi

I mean I can find more like these like this one, this one, and this interesting thread from 2007. I mean this used to be very common on CR forum back in the day, but I don't see these Asian entertainment threads/discussions like these anymore today. I mean what happened, how come there seem to be less people with these knowledge on Asian entertainment on CR forum. What happened to those people that talked about them? Did they just left CR? How come nobody on CR is talking about Asian entertainment anymore like in the past? I mean even today, the Movies, TV Shows, and Asian drama section on CR get less traffic then in the past (the same thing for the music section).

What really surprised me that despite K-pop popularity in the US and around the world, nobody is making serious threads and discussion about K-pop, and other Asian entertainment. I'm baffled why nobody on CR has created a topic about why K-pop fans are accepted when J-pop fans aren't (when people on MAL were able to do it). I'm really surprised to see nobody on CR has created thread about this recent issue in K-pop or this one. Despite having a lot of anime and talking about Japanese culture, I'm surprised nobody talked about the SMAP disband rumour on the music section.

For anyone that join CR before 2012, do you miss the old days when CR forum used to had a lot of threads and discussions about Asian entertainment/celebrities outside of anime/manga? Because I do really miss it.

Nah, I just miss Crunchyland, as well as a few people.

Alot of people have dropped CR between 2008 and 2011.

Wait, mdo7...Now I remember: Aren't YOU that neurotic K-nut fanboy they keep trying to kick off of ANN's forum for trying to steer every single danged conversational thread to The Country That No Sane Anime Fan Even Remotely Cares About?

Thought the name sounded familiar. It'd been a while since you'd been off your meds on ANN, so I must've forgotten.

Well yes it's me. But I boycotted ANN because of a issue over something I didn't do (it's not related to K-pop). I never went back to ANN since Zac threaten me for something I didn't do.

I like to note there are a lot of users that left ANN too. So I wasn't the only one.

Yes: Namely, you DIDN'T FREAKIN' SHUT UP ALREADY! about your K-fandom, is another thing I recall you getting very clear Mod warnings for.

I don't know, can we?

You're the one willingly engaging in side conversation from your own thread.

Yes, the CR forum had a lot of interesting threads back in 2006-2011 that you really missed and also a lot of people were able to get information and Asian entertainment news back then. This was before we had forum for those like OneHallyu, Allkpop, Soompi, etc... Crunchyroll forum back then used to be what Onehallyu is doing today for Asian entertainment.
