Contrary to popular belief, kpop fans, like myself, don’t only listen to Korean music. We aren’t only attracted to Korean or Asian men and women. We don’t only watch Korean shows and movies. We aren’t only interested in Korean culture.
And if you prefer to listen to kpop and watch kdramas, that’s perfectly fine. There isn’t anything wrong with you. You learn more about another culture by immersing yourself like this. And I respect you for loving something wholeheartedly because you want to, even though it sometimes goes against your community’s societal norms.
Please stop generalising and judging kpop fans. We’re just out here to have a good time, thank you.
People are probably going to disagree with me on this one but one thing I really hate is kpop fans who romantically ship idols to the point where they overanalyse every single little thing and try and make every communication seem like evidence that two idols are in a secret relationship. I find it rather disturbing that some fans have genuinely convinced themselves that their beliefs are real because ‘idol X’ looked at 'idol Y’ and smiled at them. It gets to the point that when idols do start dating, their partners get attacked because the relationship ruins someones 'ship’. If you really respect idols don’t assume they’re in gay relationships with their bandmates until they come out and say they are, these people have often spent a long time together and are like family to one another, so stop imagining that they’re all having sex with each other, its gross.
