I recently got into KPOP and it seems like Americans really like to neglect things that aren't about them. "Oh its not about me, not important" NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT US, AMERICA! Anime? Its not American, so its taboo apparently. KPOP? Same thing.
Well to this I say go to hell.
KPOP is really good and for people to immediately judge it without knowing it or even trying it disgusts me. Its ok not to like it if you honestly gave it a chance without a prejudice thought but to hate on what other people like because it doesn't appeal to you is pretty damn rude. I've never told a soul I listen to KPOP and that I really love this one band and that they cheer me up when I watch their interviews because they're so comedic and charming. I tried telling my brother and he bashed me immediately and started calling me a fucked up koreaboo. What the fuck? Just because I listen to music thats not in English?
I love BTS and many KPOP songs are definitely original, for many the lyrics aren't irrelevant and even if so, same thing with America's music. Work by Rihanna? Run the world by beyonce? My hump by Fergie? It depends on the song you listen to and many Korean artists can sure as hell sing.
So the world has to stop fucking hating on things they dont even have a full view on! If you don't like it, its your opinion!! But don't bash others who do like it.
I even read articles by Korean fans saying they hate international fans because this and that. Why can't we share our music?
I'm ashamed to like kpop sometimes because if i do attempt to say i like it i get bashed for it and i get ridiculed and i feel like a loser, so I hide it and pretend to like what other people like.
I wish I didn't like kPOP so I didn't have to deal with it, but I can't help it.

Sadly, I've noticed that as well. If it has nothing to do with America, then it apparently doesn't matter. I say, ignore them. No matter how much you explain it to them, they simply won't accept it and that's ok. Don't stop loving Kpop even if you're alone in doing so... now onto the Korean fan versus International fan thing... It's idiotic in my opinion. They get at us for trying to learn the lyrics or learning small phrases to talk to Kpop Idols with, but last time I checked, Koreans pick up English phrases too and mispronounce them and it's called 'Engrish'. I think they get mad that Internationals are taking notice in their music, but they ignore that their Idols follow American artists and performers... it's one big mess, really. The Korean companies are trying to make their artists global, but the native fans are too territorial over the groups.0
