To most of us, kpop is more than just music, pretty people and an impeccable sense of style. For me, it’s a life saver. I can’t tell you how many times a song has calmed me down, or a video cheered me up while depressed, or a person’s smile has made me smile. It gave me a purpose, a passion, when I had none, when I couldn’t even be bothered to eat my favorite foods. It was an effortless thing to love and care about when I couldn’t love or care about myself. So the next person that laughs at me for liking kpop, I’m gonna shove all the depression, anxiety, suicidal tendencies, panic attacks, paranoia attacks and everything else I suffered without this bit of joy in my life.
