The one thing that a lot of new kpop fans seem to forget is that popularity in the kpop industry isn’t static or permanent. Your fave is not always going to be at the top. They may be the biggest thing one year, but the year after that, they could be replaced without any consideration because that’s just how the industry works. There doesn’t seem to be any kind of respect or consideration towards senior groups amongst the newer generation fans. They just seem to go after the next big thing. Keep this in mind before you start to get arrogant and start disrespecting other groups and fandoms.
P.s. this post isn’t directed to any specific group or fandom so don’t make assumptions.
