It doesn’t matter if you recently join or have been an “experienced” member in a Kpop fandom, for sure, your love for Kpop as well as your idols is unlimited. Kpop fans are always serious in everything they do for idols: from screaming loudly their fandom’s slogan and fanchant to support their idols during their performances, to attending fansigns or concerts and even more meaningful events such as raising money for charity on their idol’ birthday or on the anniversary day of their favorite group.
Besides that, however, all of those things are still too “ordinary” compared to what will be summarized as below. No matter how “weird” they are, these things are very cute and for sure, every Kpop fan has done some at least once in their whole life.
Buy anything that includes your idols’ photos.
An album that includes your idol’s photo? You’ll surely buy it. How about a poster to stick on your room’s wall? How can’t you buy it?
Fans don’t hesitate to buy everything from daily and normal object such as glass, T-shirt, hat or anything, to even socks with cartoons which may not look exactly like their idol’s face, but it doesn’t matter at all.
Talk to your idols by yourself.
It sounds kinda “strange”, but you have to admit that you have done it at least once, right? How can you control yourself when your “oppas, unnies” keep showing up everywhere in your house, from your cabinet or bookshelf to computer desktop and room’s wall…?
Have a detailed look at your idol’s videos, take a screenshot or “zoom” in any parts of their bodies.
If you regularly access Kpop forums, you will easily see your idols’ photos with wonderful hair, cute dimples, or beautiful hands, jaw lines, legs… and then, immediately save them to your computer or cell phone.
Both male and female Kpop idols are very familiar with this “gender transformation” trend.
Especially, when “oppas” transform into girls or just do a choreography of a girlgroup, their fans laugh so hard.
Compare your idols to cute animals
This is surely a popular thing among what Kpop fans often do because there are a lot of cute nicknames that fans create for their idols from rabbit, cat, duck, dog, monkey, fish, bear, to even…dinosaur.
Follow your idols when they eat, sleep, go shopping, go on a vacation.
It sounds quite like what a “saesang fan” often does, but in fact, you can totally follow your idols’ interesting lives through famous variety shows such as Showtime, Roommate, One Fine Day and more.
Read and write fanfictions.
To Kpop fans, fanfictions (stories written by Kpop fans featuring their idols) are good dishes for their “mental health”. However, in contrast, non-fans think they are weird and even “fancy” stories.
Ship your idols with other and start to “push the ships”.
To Kpop fans, shipping a member with another member within a group is very popular and seems to be a “mental dish” that they can’t live without. It doesn’t matter if that is a boygroup or girlgroup, many fans like to ship their beloved idols with each other nowadays.
As a Kpop fan, do you often do these things?
