kpop fans have problems discerning their interest (if legitimate at all) because of the whole my-faves-are-more-superior complex. which is honestly really stupid, seeing that both Winner and iKon are YG anyway. plus some fans are pretty rude and immature (can't help it with most of them being in high school), hence not being able to appreciate the artist for their music instead. i personally love iKon, Winner and MOBB & the crap that goes on between the two dominant fandoms is just ridiculous.
YG fans are way too aggressive and angry with each other. They ran out of groups outside of YG to prove they are superior to so now they just compete with each other. And it’s just like “how is it that serious?”. I talked about it before but they throw the lowest of blows and have no shame about the fact that they just said something reprehensible about another person because “I’m defending my faves”. I’m not just talking about iKon and WINNER either, I mean yes them but also all the other groups and even within the groups which is super weird.
Overall, I think fans of all kpop or even khh stuff need to step away from the blind praise type of stuff. Like it’s okay if you don’t like EVERYTHING an artist does. It’s okay if you don’t engage in an argument every.single.time someone says something negative about your “fave”. It’s okay to not assume someone is an “anti” just because they gave some constructive criticism or made an observation about something. It’s also okay to admit that another group or artist is technically better than your fave. People have different skill levels and you just personally like something else.
