So DramaFever just posted a video about "4 Steps To Cure Your KDRAMA & KPOP Addiction" and it sort of rubbed me the wrong way?

Here's their list and my commentary:

1. Throw Away Your Merch

Alright, I can understand this sort of but what about selling your merch or giving it to other Kdrama or Kpop fans? Throwing your stuff away will only make the whole world sad.

2. Resist Watching All K-Drama and Kpop Videos

Okay I'll give them this one too but come on! Where are the actual good tips for getting out of a fandom?

3. Get a Real Boyfriend

Okay this is where I got annoyed - I have a boyfriend, plenty of my Kpop/Drama friends have boyfriends, husbands, wives, even kids! It's a little insulting to say that all K-entertainment fans are single women and that there is anything wrong with that! People don't need a significant other in their lives to be fulfilled!

4. Socialize

Bro, what do you think we do here on Vingle? Socializing and freaking out about all of our favorite dramas and groups is what we live for. Clearly DramaFever people are just watching K-dramas wrong...
Basically, I just want to know why DramaFever thinks that fans of K-drama and Kpop are sad, lonely, and don't talk to any friends. That's lame DramaFever - I hope you come to Vingle soon and meet the really awesome Kdrama/Kpop fans you clearly haven't met yet!

What do you guys think when people say "why don't you get a real boyfriend" or something similar when it comes to fanboying and girling over K-entertainment?

I honestly didn't even bother watching it because I knew it would annoy me. I feel like people say why don't you get a real boyfriend when it comes to many things. But it's annoying because I don't need to be with anyone to be happy. Like honestly I'm only 23 and all I want to do now is finish school. Not date because it's the "normal" thing I should be doing at my age.

The real question is why is it so important for girls to HAVE boyfriends e.e they don't solve girls' problems, girls do. And does that also mean a girl should throw away everything they love to do just cause they're dating? e.e (this is coming from a person longterm dating, BUT my friends are always faced with other people who stress them into dating and they end up with people who don't treat them nicely. ALSO, my boyfriend actually likes my fangirling about books and kpop& kdramas. HIS CAT WATCHES THEM WITH ME XD)

@kpopandkimchi I just watched it. I don't agree on throwing away the merchandise because that is all money there. I would keep it. I just laughed because the 4th one is totally me. The only time I talk about kpop is only on vingle. I didn't think much of it because my life isn't that lonely. I just love kpop and kdramas.
