So anyway shout out to the gay kpop fans who have to watch their sexuality be turned into a gimmick while actual homosexuality is shunned (in general, but maybe not by their idols). Shout out to the transgender kpop fans who saw hope in Lady, but were heartbroken when they disbanded. Shout out to transgender kpop fans who don’t even know who Lady is, but could’ve benefitted from having their music around.
Shout out to the black kpop fans who have to deal with 1000 whitewashed photos of their idols because their dark skin isn’t nice enough to be captured in a photo. Shout out to the Asian fans who have dark skin, monolids or small eyes, big noses, and who aren’t skinny, that have to watch as their idol who shares these traits is ridiculed for not fitting the Western idea that Asians are petit or delicate and submissive, and forced to laugh it off, lest the idol’s reputation be damaged. Shout out to the chubby and fat kpop fans who feel like they’re lesser because they don’t look like their idols and have to watch as those who do look like them are attacked by netizens.
To those who look up to those few actors/singers who are out and appreciate people like Heechul, Amber, Ren, and Jeonghan for wearing traditional “boy/girl” clothing or having “boy/girl” hair; to those who look up to Wonho for saying gender doesn’t matter to him; to the black fans that find comfort in knowing Insooni, Lee Michelle, Yoon Mirae, and Alex from Rania changed the game and killed/are killing it the way they are; to those fans who defend their idols’ melanin to the death and who call out racist remarks made by other idols and fans; to those fans who don’t fit the bill of pretty and take comfort in their idols speaking out about kpop’s ridiculous standards:
sm entertainment has revealed that, after releasing the “final” station single this week, they will be preparing for a second “season” of the project. it is said that the project will possibly come back under a different name with the intention to expand to collaborations with overseas artists.

I THINK THERE SHOULD BE A “REAL HOUSEWIVES OF KPOP” TALK SHOW WHERE YOU GATHER ALL THE LEADERS OF KPOP GROUPS MALE AND FEMALE AND HAVE THEM AIR OUT THEIR WOES AND BITCH ABOUT MEMBER TROUBLES WHILE DRINKING RED WINE LMAO
sometimes i take a break from listening to kpop to refresh™ myself, but as im listening to other music ill suddenly get Ring Ding Dong stuck in my head and realize that there truly is no escape from this hell
No matter how many of all the salty and bitter fans say that artists from SM entertainment don’t deserve their success, I think we can all agree that SM has some of the best dancers and vocals in the industry… Even though it’s hard for many people who are blinded by bitterness to accept. No shade intended.
The fact that there are still thousands and thousands of fans who still think that groups from the big 3 don’t deserve their success astounds me. When are people going to get out of their tiny little, ignorant bubbles full of salt, bitterness and negativity?
This guy has been through way too much shit caused by both “fans” and agency.
This is a time where Kpop fans can truly show what Kpop-family is. An idol neglected by the agency he’s signed to, where he has been for 9 years (which may I add, is before older groups like 2NE1, F(x), 4MINUTE, BEAST and SHINee even debuted. In fact, SNSD debuted the same year he debuted at SM).
Can we all just agree to help him out? Whether it is him wanting to leave SM, or him wanting to release his music.
“I…only have my fans left. If you see this message, please speak for me. My agency doesn’t listen to me.”
