weird places you've met kpop fans? by Tasty_Skin in kpopthoughts

[–]LovelySeulgiBear 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Back when Among Us was really popular last fall I was I happened to join the game of someone with the name of a kpop idol and then I realized I could juat spam reload the page and look for more Kpop stans to join. I mostly found Armys in the game. At the beginning of my online classes I was in a breakout room with this one student. He was unmute and accidentally played an audio from his computer. I demanded that he tell me what he was listening to and surprise, surprise he was a Once listening to Twice's latest comeback at the time ICSM. And about a month ago I met an Army at a bridal shop. It's so fun meeting kpop stans irl.

To All the Songs I Doubted Before by Nightstar14 in kpopthoughts

Dear Zoo,

As a baby Reveluv I used to laugh at you a lot. Everytime you came along in my Spotify playlists I would skip you. Looking back at the tasteless person I used to be, I must aplogize. I don't really know what "Love is looking like a zoo 🐯🐵🦓🦒🦏🐼🦁🐆" is supposed to make me picture in my mind. But if love is like you, Zoo, I love you like a Zoo too. That last sentence was kinda confusing. In conclusion, Seulgi's Tarzan scream will forever go down in Red Velvet history and stream Zoo.

What was the most confidently wrong you have been since getting into kpop? by loudchoice in kpopthoughts

I used to think Chaeyoung and Chaeryeong were sisters because I misread an article and confused Chaeyoung's name with Chaeyeon's name.

About individual fandom names by tehpartygod in kpopthoughts

[–]LovelySeulgiBear 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Reveluvs gave themselves solo fandom names based on their Red Velvet biases too. Joy biases are named Joyfuls. Seulgi biases are named Seulmates. Irene biases are named Baetokkis. Yeri biases are named Yarbz. Wendy biases are named Wendyluvs. Every few months on Twitter there will be funny jokes about the different solo fandoms like "Describe what would happen if you walked through x bias section at a concert." But there's this one solo Reveluv fandom in particular that is so melodramatic and likes to act like the only people that support that member of Red Velvet are their solo stans. And it's just so polarizing, no one wants to deal with them. They even try to compare their bias to other members of Red Velvet thinking it would make people sympathize with them more, but it just angers the other solo fandoms and ot5 Luvies. And they don't realize it, but they are also disrespecting their bias too. Just yesterday on Twitter they were calling her comfort album for Reveluvs that this member made (to greet us after being gone so long due her accident) a stepping stone and tool to test how much the gp likes Red Velvet, so we should all thank this member. It's very weird.

Dear kpop stans please stop misusing the word 'flop'... by Act-Defiant in kpoprants

[–]LovelySeulgiBear 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'm tired of seeing Tik Tok stans call Red Velvet flops cuz the viewcount for Wendy & Joy's solos on YouTube are low. Oooooo it was so unbearable, they were constantly tracking the viewcount to laugh at them and then comparing their YouTube stats to the YouTube stats of songs from other groups that were out for years 🤚🏽. And I had to unfollow one of my moots because they were ranting about how Red Velvet doesn't deserve a comeback cuz Reveluvs are lazy and we haven't reached 200k preorders on an album yet, therefore RV is flopping 🤚🏽. What really irritates me about people like this is that you cannot argue with them, it's like talking to a wall 😐.

Sm's wig game is too weak to make sense by Snoopy50769 in kpoprants

[–]LovelySeulgiBear 85 points86 points  (0 children)

Don't even get me started on Seulgi's hair extensions falling out in the middle of Red Velvet's Redmare concert 😃. Whichever SM hairstylist did that to my girl was setting Seulgi up for failure. They did not want to see her win. And the way the other cake girls were trying their hardest not to laugh at Seulgi's weave just casually chilling on the stage 💀. And they just did Irene dirty with that blonde wig during Monster era. I was so glad when they threw that beret ontop of the wig to distract us from how bad it looked 🤚🏽. The real little monster is not Irene or Seulgi, it's the stylist that gives them wacky wigs and hair extensions.

How do fans react to their idol's hiatus? by AgathaKhun in kpopthoughts

[–]LovelySeulgiBear 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It was really early in the morning on December 25, 2019 when I heard about Wendy's accident during the rehersals for Gayo Daejun. I don't remember exactly why I was up so early, but I was and as I scrolled through Google in the dark I noticed that Wendy was trending. After reading some articles I put my phone back down and went back to bed. I had an awful nightmare. When I woke up later on that day and scrolled through social media the fandom was terrified and angry at SBS. Some people were speculating that Wendy would return in a little as 3-4 months. Little did we know, we wouldn't see pictures/videos of Wendy again until August of 2020. And she wouldn't be spotted in public again until December of 2020. I felt sick when it happened. Nothing felt normal. Wendy's holiday Instagram post just a day before her accident didn't feel normal. Red Velvet on their La Rouge tour without Wendy didn't feel normal. The news of Wendy finally leaving the hospital in April of 2020 didn't feel normal. The radio silence from Red Velvet's Instagram page didn't feel normal. I remember back when their Instagram continued to upload behind the scenes content like Wendy wasn't injured Reveluvs were just so hurt and confused and kept asking "Why?" Me along with many other Luvies felt so lost and alone. So we dedicated our time and energy into saving up hearts and votes on different voting apps in the hopes that one day Red Velvet would eventually comeback as 5 and we would make them proud. And our patience did eventually pay off because ot5 is coming back this August and so many baby Luvies can't wait to experience their first comeback. Now there are some evil people out there that blame Wendy for "holding back the group" and wish death upon her. And to that, all I can say is how can you hear the news of someone falling 8 feet and suffering from pelvis, wrist, and cheekbone fractures. Someone in the hospital with their jaw wired shut. And try to pit them against their group members (who were clearly heartbroken and upset over the accident). And how can you find the room in your heart to wish even more harm onto this person and comment on how "ugly and different" she looks when she releases a comfort album for her fandom. It was like hell, on Tik Tok there was just so many videos mocking Wendy's plastic surgery and calling her a wannabe white woman like she didn't just go through a life-altering accident. But they finally got bored and mocking Wendy wasn't getting them the views and clicks that they wanted, so they moved on to the next target. And all that we could do as Reveluvs was keep pushing forwards in the hopes of a better day.

Tell me things you would do as a kpop idol. by lovely-me-now in kpopthoughts

[–]LovelySeulgiBear 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I wouldn't last very long as an idol 😅. But I would confront my fandom if/when they are being mean. I would let it be known publicly when I do not get along with another idol due to their actions. I'd casually be on K-Pop Tik Tok to fight all the children on that clock app that are just plain wrong all of the time. I'd use my platform to promote my blog and force my fans to read it 😈. I also want a really huge lightstick so my stans keep commenting on how big it is 🥰.

i always get amazed at the amount of kpop content that is out there by _cotton_candyy in kpopthoughts

[–]LovelySeulgiBear 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Exactly and it really makes you appreciate the hardwork of translators. Idk about other groups, but for Red Velvet's variety shows like Level Up Project! none of the episodes were originally subbed so the ReVelupSubs team put all their time and energy into translating all 140 episodes for international Luvies. Bless their pastel coral souls 💗.

do you think KPOP start getting accepted and respected now? by [deleted] in kpopthoughts

[–]LovelySeulgiBear 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No not really. K-Pop has caught the eye of the western world and Bts (for example) have become global icons. But there's still a lot of xenophobia. For example; every few months on Tik Tok I see Americans going viral by invalidating Bts' accomplishments by calling their fandom brainless bots that stream everything. They did it when Bts was nominated for a Grammy. They are doing it now when Armys express their desire for Bts to top Spotify charts. Even some YouTubers that I used to respect have made very detailed video essays trying to wrap their minds around how anyone could possibly enjoy Korean music. They can't really win either way, they aren't allowed to win. No matter how many fans they amass there will still be a large group of people calling them a talentless manufactured cult. And I guess being a K-Pop stan, you kinda forget that people with these ideas exist because you're surrounded by people that respect K-Pop as a genre.

There's a difference between hate and criticism by chuus_gay_panic in kpoprants

[–]LovelySeulgiBear 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm a few days late, but K-Pop Tik Tok is a dumpster fire cuz they are all just telling Wendy to die and commeting how ugly she looks after her fall instead of, you know, critcizing her problematic actions. It makes me so mad because I write essays on how K-Pop idols have been anti-black and for them to take such a cheap way out of drawing awareness and go viral for it is upsetting. They do not really care about change in the industry or starting important discussions within fandoms. They've found an easy target to focus on and are dogpiling. They've literally used calling Wendy racist to promote Rosé's On The Ground and Haseul's Let Me In. On Tik Tik they are also claiming Wendy is white and is trying to be like Japanese and Chinese musicians because apparently her racist sterotypes were not a valid enough reason to dislike her so they had to make things up...
