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!
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?
