Among them, Jungkook’s fansites have the most followers.
Kpop fans may not be too familiar with terms like fansite, master-nim, fan chant, fandom … Fansite, for those who don’t know, is a page created by one or more individuals. Founded in Korea, fansite mainly publishes photos and videos of the artist (s) they love. The head of the fansite called master-nim, these people have a lot of affection for the artist they bias, but above all, they have the time and financial conditions to keep up with the artist’s schedule to take photos, shoot videos and organize donations to buy gifts, billboards, food support … for artists on special occasions.
In many cases, the fansite or master-nim is admired no different from the idol in the fandom. Because being able to keep up with the idol’s schedules at many different locations and releasing photos, being a fansite is not something anyone can do. In big fandoms, fansites even have the same number of followers on social networks as the real Kpop idols.
