So after reading what @kpopandkimchi wrote about sasaengs, little ol'paranoid me now thinks I may accidentally have become a sasaeng. I have reasons why I think I am and why I think I am not, so please reassure me that I am not one or how to not be one. Thank you!
Why I may be one: I want to be a photographer. Recently, I have been thinking about how awesome it would be if I could get to be the photographer of one of their concerts. Or I am the photographer of one of their photoshoots. I mean, how cool would that be? Me, just a fan who happens to be a photographer, gets to take photos of these idols! But after reading about some sasaengs stories, I feel like that I'd something a sasaeng would do to get close to an idol.
Why I may not be one: I have been wanting to go into an art field ever since I was a little girl - since I was about 5. On top of that, I always have been into traveling and Asian cultures (because my grandmother is Japanese and we were close). During the summer of 2013, I decided the art field I wanted to go into was photography. I hoped I would be able to travel the world with my camera as a photojournalist. Being paid to travel and take pictures honestly is a dream job for me. I have an IQ to let me be a lawyer or doctor, but photography is my passion, along with drawing if you have not seen my drawing of Key from SHINee. I would also like to be a photographer at concerts because I grew up in a very musical town and love all sorts of music. Taking photos of K-Pop idols would be great - not just for my career but for the experience of seeing them live. Also, having photoshoots of Korean Idols would be awesome because I have fallen in love with most of the culture. However, that does not mean I would just want to take photos of Korean idols; that would just be a plus.
So, what do you guys think? I do not think I am a sasaeng, but I just want other people's opinions to reassure myself. Thank you!!!! ♡
