Even though these groups have been around for a while, they are in no way irrelevant or flops. They still have dedicated fans who have stayed by them since the very beginning, and they absolutely do not deserve to be disrespected and forgotten like they are now by so many new fans. All of these groups have paved their way to success from pure hard work, and helped make kpop this international so the least we can give them is a little respect.
Asking idols to speak in English. Doesn’t matter Whether they can or they can’t.
Asking for your bias when they are not the ones broadcasting and/or are clearly not present.
Spamming comments asking for them to do/say something for you. They are not a performing monkey. Once or twice ok, but stop copying and pasting the same thing 400 times.
Asking people who have left idol groups why they left or to talk about the group/members.
“Any army here? XD”
Bringing up other idols/groups on broadcasts/videos/posts not relevant to them.
Asking “who is this?/who are you?” When it’s been answered already mUlTipLe times and is in the tiTLe/DescriptiOn OF THE VIDEO/BROADCAST.
Referring to any idol sibling as “sibling of -insert name of more famous sibling-” instead of their own name.
Boy groups Vs Girl groups
Sexy Vs Cute
Saying inappropriate or sexual things DIRECTLY to idols.
Stanning strictly because of looks then Unstanning when they change up.
Private messaging idols, especially with nude photos.
Spreading leaked videos or photos.
“OMG THEY LOOK LIKE -insert Bangtan member-”
Trying to force people to believe your group is superior
KHipHop rappers VS Idol rappers
Annoying Sungoh of 24K cause you think he looks like V
Annoying Haewon of L.A.U because you saw his photo being used in a smutty Jin imagine.
Tagging THIS as BTS members. It’s B:ETA and J:ETA from ALPHABAT.
Trying to make them conform to your standards and way of thinking.
Perving on underage idols. Particularly if you are over 18.
Criticizing their bodies. Too fat, too skinny, no abs etc.
Attacking any girl within a 50 mile radius of oppa. Hate all you want to your friends and on your personal media but do not go to these girls (or guys cause I’ve seen that too) accounts and rage against them. You have no fucking right ok?
HanJoo and shoving ships into idols faces even after they’ve expressed their dislike for it. Again, keep it private.
Assuming Idol’s sexuality and/or asking them about it.
Seriously telling other fans to stay away from your bias as If you own them.
Koreaboos and random Korean that you learned from google.
“I only care about ‘x’ member.”
Putting down and/or disrespecting older or lesser known groups.
Calling members who leave groups traitors and treating them like they’ve done something wrong
Not letting idols be human
Not giving them the basic respect and courtesy every human deserves
wow… it’s been 13 years. where do i even begin to say how proud i am of how far dbsk has come? as changmin once said (i paraphrase, since i can’t find the exact interview) that being together for 10 (and more) years was an accomplishment by itself, regardless of the number of fans they had or the number of awards they had won. that the fact that they could make people happy around the world was rewarding in itself, and their long journey was fulfilling in itself.
honestly, this gifset is not enough to encompass all that you have done. whether one considers the numbers above small or big, according to me, you have accomplished so much more than just your awards and milestones. i think you have shown your fans the true meaning of working hard and not giving up, no matter how many obstacles fall your way. from the start, you’ve had a tough journey and yet you’ve persevered. being broke, having sasaengs, having anti-fans, having practically no audience in a foreign country, being lonely in a foreign country, broadcasting at the weirdest timings, having an insane schedule, splitting up, dealing with more anti-fans, almost not returning as a duo, losing huge amounts of fans, amongst so many other things. and yet, all of you have come out stronger and better.
even with those difficulties, you have strived to show the best of you to us, and there has hardly been a moment you have not made us proud. so, be it as five or two, thank you for carrying the name of ‘dong bang shin ki’ far and wide across the world. thank you being such a huge part of what k-pop is today, and thank you for giving your 110% all the time, even though you know you don’t have to. thank you for everything in the past 13 years, and here’s to many more to come.
Just because a group isn’t popular like they were in the past doesn’t make them irrelevant. People grow out of fandoms, and new generation groups take over because that’s just how it is, but that doesn’t make older generation groups any less influential or loved. Every group has their peak of popularity but they also have dedicated fans who have continued to love and support them since the very beginning. Please keep this in mind before you put down older generation groups.
The fact that there are still thousands and thousands of fans who still think that groups from the big 3 don’t deserve their success astounds me. When are people going to get out of their tiny little, ignorant bubbles full of salt, bitterness and negativity?
