I would like to thank everyone for taking their time to respond to this survey. Your contribution is much appreciated. Anyway, this might sound a bit formal. But as long as I deliver the message, aite?
This is a mini kd shippers/supporters survey. I asked a question and collected responses which were consisted of a statement(s). I managed to collect a total of 99 responses in a span of 10 days.
Question: i have an honest question. i’m really curious. who re u guys that ship/support kd? ks stans, ji stans, ex0-l, non-ex0-l, not even into kpop?
Next, I’ve analyzed the data using a simple coding method (use in a qualitative study). I’ve extracted a few important points from the data and divided it into two main categories - Group Stan & Bias. The subcategories were determined based on the amount of the same response
Group Stan - (1) EX0.L, (2) Non-EX0.L and (3) Not Stated Bias - (1) Jong.in, (2) Kyung.soo, (3) Jong.in & Kyung.soo and (4) Others
The unit used in the result is counted as per response [x/99].
1st Category: Group Stan
I think the highlight of this result is the Non EX0.L. Altho it’s not many of them but I find it interesting that Non EX0.L take an interest in kd. These were some responses from the Non EX0.L.
º im not ex0.l anymore and if it weren’t for kd i wouldn’t be here (in the fandom)
just kai.soo-l. im not into kpop or ex.o anymore… i just exist here now just for kai.soo. tho i still go to ex.o concerts but just to see kai.soo. º I’m not a EX.O fan but I believe Kai.soo are dating º not really an ex0.l i literally only went to ex0.rdium to see them both c: º …I’m a bt.s stan irl º
Im an ar.my but i’ve been shipping kai.soo almost since the beginning :) they are The only ship that I actually believe is real
The ‘Not Stated’ subcategory is self-explanatory. I believe it doesn’t affect the result that much.
2nd Category: Bias
Ks bias and ji & ks bias share the 1st spot on the chart with a total of 33 responses, respectively. I find it quite shocking. I expected that there would be more of ks bias since I’ve only heard many kd shippers are ks bias.
It is expected from my pov that there aren’t many kd shippers that biased ji, which I also find it interesting. Perhaps this has anything to do with his popularity among ifandom? Or they are more of them that ship other otp like se.kai etc? Mybe his past dating scandal affected stans in some way? //shrug.
The least frequent answers fell under ‘Others’; consisted of those who doesn’t bias ji and ks, bias all ex0 and not stated specifically.
As per stated in the title, the result represent kai.soo shippers and supporters. This is not a proper survey since the data are varied and I’ve only managed to extract few points when they could have been more. So take this survey as it is~ Anyway, it was a fun mini survey and I also had fun analyzing the data! Click ‘Keep reading’ to check out all of the responses.
That’s all for now. Thank you and have a nice day :)
1: sexuality headcanon: he ain’t straight I’ll tell you that much, but idk exactly what word fits best.
2: otp: Davey says he’s not allowed to date at least until after his Bar Mitzvah.
3: brotp: Les and Jack, best bros for life
4: notp: don’t ship him with an older character. please. he’s not even ten guys.
5: first headcanon that pops into my head: Sarah was very nervous to come out as trans to him because she thought he wouldn’t get it but the first thing he said was “You’ll still get me ice cream on Fridays even if you’re my sister now, right?”
6: one way in which I relate to this character: looks up to his friends and wants their approval
7: thing that gives me second hand embarrassment about this character: again, he’s never made me feel embarrassed ever
8: cinnamon roll or problematic fave? what a cinnamon roll come on folks he’s adorable
