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!

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

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.
