Do you ever see someone on Tumblr who has the same bias as you and they are the sweetest and kindest, most heartfelt people and you just think “wow my bias really deserves a fan like that” and then think you’re not good enough to bias your bias?
I see a lot of people always say things such as; “King Chittaphon Leechaiyapornkul” or “Lisa is the princess of Thailand” or “Thailand’s King Nichkhun” or “Prince Bambam of Thailand” etc. (do i need to go on). First of all, I’d just like to ask everyone to STOP addressing Thai idols with royal titles. It is EXTREMELYdisrespectful to Thailand, the Thai Royal Family, Thai culture, Thai beliefs and the idols themselves. When Sorn was on Happy Together and the hosts kept saying she was Thailand’s princess - you could see how uncomfortable she was and she kept saying no. You know why? It’s disrespectful. Thailand as a nation love and respect our royal family, a lot. We even have pictures of the Royal family everywhere, we stop in our tracks when the national anthem play, our late king passed away and we are still having the year long mourning period. So to be seeing common people referred to as a royalty of our nation, I’m sorry but it’s offensive. I know how great those idols are and as a Thai person I am proud of them for making a name for our country. However, the kpop fandom needs to stop giving them royal titles. They are not even considered A Listers in Thailand! Only people who like kpop knows them. (well except Nichkhun since he’s done many cfs and even lakorns). I mean, if you say King Ten or Prince Bambam no one will care, but if you add of Thailand, it’s another story. Please think about how you’re belittling a nation by doing it and think about how those idols will definitely also be uncomfortable with it and find it disrespectful. I know it’s just a lack of knowledge but I hope EVERYONE will stop doing this. It’s not a matter of Thai people being petty, it is a serious issue as it’s even a crime in Thailand to belittle the royal family and it’s treated as treason.
