Today’s evening , my brother said to me that I am hantu kpop and then ran away while screaming ; Kakakku hantu kpop!!! . Wow, that would make a nice pop Malay novel .
I think kpop is extremely big nowadays , pretty much everyone has listened to kpop songs in the course of their lifetimes ; voluntarily or involuntarily. Even my cousins who hate kpop (because the boys are prettier than them XD ) recognised the songs I played when I tried to introduce my biases to em .
If you follow my social medias , you must be alarmed that I am now an ARMY hahahaha. Ew. I used to despise and look down at ARMYs because they are very loud and annoying . I knew BTS eversince their debuts , but of course I wasn’t a fan because ahm.. I stanned EXO and BTS beat EXO at awards . I was… quite foolish , as you could see. I should have stan this awesome group sooner!
Admittedly BTS used to annoy me so much because they are everywhere and they keep producing albums , songs ,even do videos for fans. Question ; aren’t they tired?
However , later I realised. BTS doesn’t come from big company , they aren’t from the 3 big giants. They are from a small company , but they have a big dream. With that dream , (okay , maybe dreams ) they put their heads down and work extremely hard. If this didn’t work out , they might as well have to forget their dreams . There is no plan B . They just need to push themselves and produce good contents for fans. They succeeded , I have to add. They made it to Billboard. They even won Top Social Artist Award at Billboard Music Award 2017 , that’s hugeeee . The first kpop group to win the award. Coming from very humble background , how could I not see them as an inspiration.
THEY ARE FREAKING SMART UTILISING THE SOCIAL MEDIAS CONSTANTLY FEEDING UPDATES TO THE HUNGRY AND FAMISHED FANS AND PRODUCE CATCHY MVS HOT DANCE EVEN SYNCHRONISED DANCE STEPS AND HOW COULD YOU GUYS PRODUCE SUCH BEAUTIFUL LYRICS , NOT MANY KPOP ARTISTS MAKE THEIR OWN MUSICS AND IT IS ALWAYS FELT LIKE BTS AND ARMY ARE CLOSE.VERY PERSONAL. THIS FANDOM FEELS SO REAL AND PERSONAL . I COULD RELATE TO BTS .
Before this I only want to go Jaejoong’s concert , now I want to go to BTS as well. And it is a very bad news to my pocket that I am obsessed over a new group , posters and albums are expensive….
Please , grant me a scholarship.
