I don't see what's all the fuss is about. They're wearing clothes and posing in a sexy way, what's the big deal? They're grown women and I can't speak for all girls, but sometimes we just want to feel sexy once in a while. It just sounds like people are complaining because they aren't looking like "your" Scandal, like their your little dolls in a glass case that you don't want anyone to touch. People are too over protective.
And don't say it's the japanese men's faults because there have been huge cases of "idols" doing something sexy or out of their normal way and recive enormous hate from their male fans. And they usually act the same way as some people saying "they're not supposed to be like that! Thats not how MY girls should act." the way you guys are acting is getting really close to "idol worship."
About the whole, they're just marketing their image, not music. They've already reached all the fans that they can with their music on their own. This is just so that they can gain exposure to a larger audience who would otherwise not even care who Scandal is. This is a huge opportunity for people to be curious about Scandal. They'll wonder," who are these pretty girls" and start reading more and discover "wow they play instruments? A girl band? Thats different! They aren't just beautiful girls but theyre talented too."
I'm sorry, that was a long rant. As you can see I care about the girls too, but I don't try to put them on such a high pedistal.
