Get to know ToppDogg

Since we’ve been gaining a lot of new fans lately, I’ve decided to make it easier for all of you to get into the awesome group that is ToppDogg. In this post, there will be basic info, links and videos, and I hope this post will be helpful to all the new ToppKeuls out there. Welcome to the fandom and enjoy your stay!

ToppDogg debuted in October 2013 as a 13 members group under Stardom Entertainment, but are now a 10 members group under Hunus Entertainment (Stardom merged with Hunus during summer 2015 and Hunus is now in charge of the group’s promotions). The members are divided into 4 Kingdoms (Dragons, Knights, Lions and Wizards) and 2 sub-units (ToppDogg G and UnderDogg, which are both pretty inactive).

Here are the links to their title songs:

Award for cutest laugh goes to Hansol 😍 I needed this on loop omg

Okay ToppKlass, we need to talk.

Once again, some of you managed to piss Hansol off on Instagram (here are the translations of his posts: part 1 part 2 part 3 part 4). So here are some reminders:

ToppDogg reads all the comments on social media. Every. Single. One. They try their best to be the closest to their fans so they actually take the time to read what fans say about them on Twitter, Instagram, their fancafe and Tumblr (yes, they know about Tumblr). Especially Hansol. But some of you have been ruining everything by posting mean and disrespectful comments, asking about his sexuality and mentioning HanJoo all the time. How is that appropriate? Would you like it if some strangers were stalking you on social media and kept asking you about your sexuality? No. Because that’s something private you don’t really want to share with everyone. If you like shipping idols, writing fanfics and do fanart, that’s okay. But do it somewhere else than on your idol’s personal accounts!

Don’t ask them to speak English. None of the member are native English speakers so it’s normal they don’t communicate in English with their fans. And even if they were, who are you to tell them what to do? If you want to understand what they’re saying, wait for the translations (that’s what fanbases are for and they are doing an amazing job). And if you’re not patient enough, learn Korean. Don’t expect them to make things easier for you, they already do enough for their fans.

Also: your idols are not your friends. You may think you know them but you don’t, and they don’t know you. So stop being rude to them like you would be with your close friends, because this isn’t funny to them. Stop acting like you can say anything you want to them just because you’re a fan. Actually, if you are being disrespectful like this, don’t even dare call yourself a fan.

If you’re doing what I’ve just talked about: stop it. Now.
