dream generation

types of kpop fans
  1. the dabbler: stans a bunch of groups and will help you with information about anything you seek
  2. the loyalist: stans only one group but devotes their heart to that fandom and will still support and listen to other ones too
  3. the fanatic: stans one group…a lil too much in the best way tho
  4. the dank one: creates memes, edits videos, and probably dabs ironically
  5. the soft stan: sees only pure angels when they look at idols, probably only reads fluff
  6. the editor: new video came out? don’t you worry, they have gifs up in less than 0.03 of a second not that i’m complaining it’s glorious
  7. the writer: god bless them. write even tho they aren’t getting paid and have to deal with so much b.s, thank you for existing
  8. the new one: probably says “oppa” and mentally high fives themselves after, most likely biases bts, uses old memes but doesn’t know any better go easy on them
  9. the dead one: often uses terms such as, “I CANT BREATHE”, “IM DYING”, “IM DEAD”, “IM DECEASED”, etc.
  10. the kinky one: probably stumbled upon smut accidentally, aroused by random body parts, lol but have you seen wonho’s knees, reads smut a lil too much but that’s ok
Imagine

Your bias calls you, and you know it’s them, because they are facetiming you. And obviously you are starstruck bc they are your bias. and you say hesitantly  ….hey. Your bias then pauses for a second and then goes BAAAAAAAH!

K-pop Fans: What We Say vs. What We Mean
  • What we say: I just wanna know their names
  • What we mean: The one in the back is really cute and I want to know everything about them
  • What we say: Yeah, I'll go to bed soon
  • What we mean: I'm staying up until 4am for a V-Live
  • What we say: Yeah, I really like (insert bias name here)
  • What we mean: He/She is my entire world, I love them with all of my heart, I would sell my kidney to be with them, I love them more than myself
  • What we say: I really want to go to that concert.
  • What we mean: I need to see them live, I need to be breathing the same air as them. I will freak the fuck out if I do not go to that concert.
  • What we say: God dammit that concert is sold out.
  • What we mean: Who do I need to kill for a ticket

As an Asian American living in America, discovering Kpop made me realize that I don’t have to be white to make it big. I should feel proud of my culture and language, and not feel ashamed about it. It showed me that I’m beautiful with my tan skin, dark hair, and brown eyes. It showed me that no matter what race you are, you can achieve something big! Now learning about Exp, I’m so mad, I’m almost livid, because it’s easy for whites to enter the Kpop industry but Asian Americans struggle with entering the American pop industry Kpop allows Asians to be proud of their race, their language, and their culture.

Yes Exp has different races (the two black members disappeared before debut, and that’s so ironic because Kpop takes from Black Culture as well), they’re not Asian except for one. But the point in Kpop was to represent Asian culture, first Korean culture, now also bringing Chinese, Thai, and Japanese culture (and hopefully more Asian cultures soon). This is important because Kpop gets so much crap because the artists are Asian. In America, Asians are seen as jokes. Kpop needs to be respected for it’s Asian artists.

Now Exp marches into the Kpop industry while other rookies have or are working their asses off to debut and these guys come in here because they’re funded…and this begins white washing everything that Kpop stood for! (This happened before with other music genres)

KEEP OFF WHAT ASIANS HAVE WORKED SO HARD TO ACHIEVE IN THE WORLD, WHICH WAS SHOW THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE WHITE TO MAKE IT BIG, TO MAKE INTERNATIONAL FAME, FOR SOMETHING WONDERFUL AND GREAT. OUR HISTORY, RACE, AND CULTURE, ISN’T A JOKE And if Exp continues promoting and this starts a chain of similar events Kpop will lose what made it important, and that’s not okay with me.
