We all have to deal with Kpop hate at some point. Whether you're out in public, hanging out with friends, or when you're with your family. These are just some of the things I heard. I believe Luhan's face represents most of the looks I've received all in one.
#1: All songs sound the same
Seriously? You need an ear check-up, desperately! So far, from what I've seen, some people say this when they listen to Gangnam Style and Gentlemen. If someone says that, what you should do, is show them different types of artists. Start out with Gee, and hit them with Overdose or, Ring Ding Dong. Whatever you do, please don't criticize the types of music they listen to, simply hit them back with Happiness!! (get it?) They should respect you!!
#2: All Koreans get plastic surgery
When I showed someone from my youth organization a photo of my bias, the first thing they said is, "Look at all that plastic surgery." Which is incredibly rude! Besides, there are American artists that have gotten surgery like, Cher, or Micheal Jackson. Also, not all Koreans get plastic surgery!! If you need an example, D.O Kyungsoo! I know some people that have told me that he had lip injections, which is, INCREDIBLY FALSE! That man has natural lips! He is all natural!!
#3: Kpop idols can't sing
EXCUSE YOU? People that say this ARE VERY IGNORANT!! You sir, have clearly never heard an idol sing live! That or they just saw a video of very low quality. Have you ever heard Aliee sing her heart out? Jaejoong‘s magical tenor? Or Lee Hi's powerful vocals? No? Then you know nothing!! Every idol can sing beautifully! I mean, they do go through years of training (except Chen who had, 11 months.) HAVE YOU NEVER HEARD CHEN'S LONG NOTE? OR D.O'S? OR RYEOWOOK? Seriously, the amount of ignorance in that reason is unreal!
This is just the hate I received on Tumblr today. I decided to make a card out of it instead, because no one should be getting hate! EVER! Who do those haters think they are? Kpop idols work very hard! They go through years of training, only to be hated on because of their music. What people fail to see is that they have feelings too! I understand that some people hate Kpop, nor do they have to love it. Disliking something because your musical taste is very different from hating on something based on fabricated arguments that are based on simple ignorance about a topic into which you don’t have insight. Instead of simply hating on K-pop out of ignorance, what you should be doing is, trying to look into it first and see whether your arguments actually make sense. This is true not only for K-pop, but for any fandoms.
