Oh look guys! We aren’t dead – as I expected! Apparently it’s been delayed to 2015 now!
Recently, I stumbled upon a comment that interested me to write this post.
‘Kpop should open people up. Some people have matured in their liking for Korea beyond Kpop, Kpop was the key that opened the door if you will. Kpop has allowed me to meet amazing people and new opportunities but also think more objectively. I do not live in a fantasy world with idols and catchy pop (sometimes I do but I’m young and enjoying my youth). However sometimes I cannot tolerate superficial fans or deluded underaged girls, even the pure manufactured nature of kpop can sometimes irritate me. But I don’t hate an entire genre.
Besides, Korea’s economy is growing thanks to all these fangirls deluded or not xD good ol’ Korea ;D

It made me think about the obsession with K-Pop and crazy fans because unless you block out anything and everyone related to the genre, it’s very addictive. Some people take K-Pop too seriously, some do not. But from what I’ve noticed, it’s the fandom or the genre itself that seems to make others want to leave. However it’s got to the point where you feel like you’ve been listening to K-pop for so long that you don’t want to leave because admit it, it’s become an obsession or just a part of your life now.
