Sometimes I think people take kpop too seriously like I love supporting exo and other groups I like whenever I can, but it makes me concerned when I see younger fans spending hours and hours streaming videos on YouTube or ignoring exams/family to spend hours staying up for MV or albums releases. This isnt including the constant fanwars and arguements online fans get invovled in .Everything should be enjoyed in moderation , you shouldn’t wreck your life and mental health by spending excessive amounts of time online screaming about kpop. Like I LOVE exo but they ain’t helping me get any closer to my dream medical degree if I dedicate my entire life to them and never study
Lots of fans don’t understand that their faves success doesn’t transfer over to them , in 2 years time I will not be writing exo-l or xingmi on my college application form because honestly they don’t mean much to those colleges. When our fave groups disband all the fangirling we did, will just be some sweet memories not major achievements. Its always a good thing to keep that in mind
One of my friends categorized Hamilton as "fake hip-hop made by white people for white people" with "second rate musicians," spouting lyrics she could "never see any artist I respect saying." I think this is unfair (and unfounded,) but since I am not a fan or knowledgeable of the genre I don't have a way to put up a counter argument. Since you love the album and are a fan of the genre what would you say to her?
