I’m proud of myself, and I need to thank BTS for it. During years, every time I would mention k-pop, people looked at me like I was crazy. “Why would you enjoy music that’s not even in your language or that you understand?”, “Oh that’s just a phase Lisa, soon you will realize that k-pop is shit!”, “Chinese people? Seriously, Lisa? You could have better taste.” and so on and so forth. I was the only one in my group of friends who loved k-pop, so I never talked anymore about it. I didn’t want to be judged.
But now, with BTS, they gave me the courage I needed to actually say out loud, and to share stuff on my social networks about k-pop. And you know what? I LOVE IT. And fuck those haters. I will never be afraid of this again. Never.
