Korean Pop music or K-Pop, as it is more commonly known as, has risen to insane levels of popularity, globally.
The year 2018 has been particularly good for the entire genre of K-Pop since it has now made its way into the mainstream.
The boyband BTS made headlines globally when they performed at the Billboard Music Awards and made an appearance on the Ellen show.
K-Pop clearly has a big following in Pakistan with incredibly loyal fans.
Of course, they have a VERY loyal fanbase in Pakistan as well. BTS fans refer to themselves as ‘Army’. And things get a little confusing when you specifically search for fans in Pakistan since results for the term ‘Pakistan Army’ brings about a very different image.
The fandoms of K-Pop celebrities are known to work together to help their band favorite succeed.
In fact, the K-Pop fandom even helps spread awareness and was a key component in getting the Bangladeshi student crisis noticed by international media outlets.
But of course, not a lot of people appreciate K-Pop stars and how loved they are especially by women. These men from Pakistan just happen to be among those “haters”
After this guy’s tweet the entire K-Pop fandom came for him and made some great points about how gender biases may play a role in perception about everything
Honestly, let people stan whoever they want to stan! It’s a free world, after all. And as for the men in K-pop looking too feminine, well it’s 2018 so let’s ditch gender roles and norms once and for all.
