I enjoy like "natural" aegyo, like there are some members that are just cute every second. Sometimes it can turn out a little cringey but overall I feel like it's nice that they have that kind of culture, but when they force people to do it... ah I really don't like that,,, but oh well, I guess it's for entertainment purposes,,,
Pretty much like most people are saying; I dunno about aegyo for aegyo's sake. If it's done naturally, and they just do it because they feel like doing it, great, but when it's done on command, it's just obviously forced with a lot of people.
I'll go to my default examples of Dreamcatcher.
Gahyeon just owns cute, and she can and will aegyo at the drop of a hat.
Dami, however, does not. Quite often, she'll do it when you least expect it, and it's absolutely adorable. But if she's asked to do it and she's not in the moment, you can see her internally cringing.
