girls generation*

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.

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

Because, as a newer fan, I’m very curious about this, reblog this and tag your first group that got you into kpop and your first song by them, and if you’re still into them !

“Why do you listen to k-pop and watch k-dramas? You’re not even Korean” I’m not American either but that doesn’t fucking stop me from watching Netflix shows and listening to Halsey

A very frustrated international fan
