If You Couldn't Be Multi-Fandom...

In Korea, liking other groups isn't encouraged.

(~I'm not saying this is a good or bad thing, just different from how international fans enjoy kpop!~)
Often at music shows, you aren't allowed to cheer for other groups if you came with a fan club (which is how you have to get into the shows 90% of the time)
Some fandoms are more relaxed, but at the end of the day you should only be faithful to one group, you should only call yourself by ONE fandom name.

The whole "I'm a SHAWOL, Starlight, ARMY" thing doesn't exist in Korea for Korean fans.

It might for international fans, but never Korean.
If you SWITCH fandoms or join a new one, you really have to switch. You can't suddenly love your old group and then also call yourself by the new fandom name.
Remember that Korean fans put a lot of personal time and money into the fandom. Buying albums, streaming to help the songs chart well, etc. Not that international fans don't do this as well, but in Korea its a big deal.

If you had to choose only one fandom to belong to - which would you be in?!

For me I would consider myself a Starlight.

While I love sooooo many groups, the only group I really devote my time to is VIXX. Yes, I love BTS but I'm much muuuch more devoted to my 6 insane little VIXX kids.

What about you!?

Honestly if I lived in Korea I would just be like "f that. I'm gonna love all these groups cause they are all talented and u can't tell me to love only one". Like how am I supposed to choose!? BTS, Exo, seventeen, Bigbang, day6, got7, block b etc... They are all so talented and amazing people!!
Tbh I'd rather die 😂 I feel like that holds back from liking other groups and liking a ton of music I mean music is the big picture right? Music is supposed to be liked if you feeling the song it doesn't matter who the artist is, but if I honestly had to choose it'd be between got7 and bts my problem is I can't choose 😂
Props to Korean fans because I couldn't do it! How do you have all this amazing talent and then just be able to choose one??? If I had to choose it would be GOT7. There's a reason why I shamelessly say I'm kpop trash, I love so many of them and could never choose just one!
Ugh... *dies a little on the inside just thinking about this* 💔 I think I'd have to choose IGOT7. They're my UB group. Heck, even in the V app, GOT7 is the only group I have level 3 in. I am seriously a Pokemon style kpop fan though. "Gotta Love 'em ALL!"
Oh no fucking forget that I'm wayyyyyy too invested in this shit I ain't giving up all ma bands, I like so many of them exo seventeen astro girls generation cosmic girls girls day mamamoo stellar Oh my girl monsta x bts got7 f (x) shinee

Super M Editor Intro
Hello all, It's Erica. I have joined @MelissaGarza on her journey to turn this community into a huge one! So let's do it! It's been awhile since I did an intro card so bare with me! I am 23 (born in 1995) and I've been on Vingle since I believe late 2015. I have been a K-pop fan since roughly the middle of 2014. The group that got me into k-pop was EXO and my first UB was Sehun. My current favorite group is NCT and Jinho (of Pentagon) is my Ultimate Bias. Though I also love Pentagon, Day6, VIXX, Astro, The Boyz, CLC, (G)I-DLE, Everglow, Stray Kids, Victon, Red Velvet, Ateez, ONEUS, ONEWE, and The Rose. I love lots of other groups too but those are the one's I keep up with the most. I am currently the pioneer and president for the ONEUS and The Boyz communities. However, those terms will be coming to end soon. I will soon be the NCT community's president again, I have been in the past for two terms. In the past I have also been Pentagon's Pioneer and president for three terms. The Kpop community's president for two terms. K-Drama's community pioneer and president for one term. (G)I-DLE's pioneer and president for one term. I have also been an editor for kpop, B.A.P, VIXX, NCT, Ateez, A.C.E, and Astro. Before Vingle had presidents/pioneers I was a part of many unofficial moderator groups keeping the interests alive. Before then when Moderators were still a thing I was Moderator for Day6 and Astro and was also on the kpop moderating team! My NCT biases are Taeyong, Doyoung, Kun, Xiaojun, and Jeno so naturally I'm going to support the crap out of Super M since Taeyong is in the group but not only that since NCT is my ult group I would've supported them regardless. Plus I'm trash for Taemin, Baekhyun, and Kai as well. However going into Super M I know Taeyong will remain my bias! I am already trash for these boys so I absolutely cannot wait for their debut! I hope all of you are looking forward to it too! Until then you can join and support the Super M Community by clicking on the link below!

Super M Community Introduction 📢🎉
Hello! My name is Melissa! I am the Pioneer President of Super M Community. I'm pretty excited about this amazing Collaboration that SM Entertainment is doing. So excited that I had to start it's own community here in Vingle. I'll be doing a brief introduction of myself. I want to introduce my team first, @Halsyeon, @Just2BLoved and @kpopfan88. Thanks for joining me in making this community possible. As I mentioned, my name is Melissa. I'll be sharing a brief introduction of myself. Then share some plans I have for the Community. Let's start with me... - I'm from Texas - I'm a huge kpop fan and in lots of fandoms. That's one of things I love about Super M. It has my favorite members from my favorite kpop groups. - My hobbies are reading, watching dramas and wrestling. I enjoy doing photo edits and dab in fan fiction writing. I also enjoy crocheting when I have the time XD - My Ultimate bias is Jackson Wang from Got7. For Super M, I have a feeling that I would have a hard time choosing an bias. - With the new term fixing to start, I'm currently at the end of being President for Got7, NCT, and EXO. I'm currently only President for Super M. I'm editor for Ateez, Shinee, and other communities councils. - I am looking forward to help this community grow and prosper. Now for my plans for Super M Community. We are still in the planning stages. I know for sure that I am planning to Welcome to the Community Giveaway. I'll be giving away Super M 1st mini album that is due to release next month. We will having an Debut event for it also. That's all we have for now. So stay tuned for more details that would be coming soon. Also stay tuned for Council members introductions. Now is the time to invite you all join Super M Community.
