Some 2nd generation K-pop groups’ achievements, just in case anyone didn’t know or forgot~

Note:
These are just some achievements! There are way many more achievements made by these groups and this list doesn’t even mention the rest of the 2nd generation groups! Let’s not disregard all their hard work and impact on K-pop! 

think about how lonely queer idols must feel… knowing most of their fans would turn on them in a moment if they came out… it’s hard to be an idol in general because majority of fans - even subconsciously - feel like they have some kinda of ownership over you and don’t actually care about your well being… but imagine been closeted queer. not only do they use you but they would actually hate you for just being queer.

i really really hope there comes a day when idols can come out and not be ashamed of who they are. on top of that, im so proud of all of them for having the courage to pursue their dreams and make music despite the bigotry that exists in their very audience
