But then of course, we have the stupid fangirls who must fight about all the trivial things.
I'm talking about balloons.
Yeah. There are fanwars about what colour a freaking balloon is.
This trend started waaaaay back in the day when boy idol group, H.O.T, had white balloons adorn their fan meets and concerts. Then g.o.d picked sky blue with Shinhwa following with orange.
When this trend caught on though, things got messy.
CSJH The Grace, a four membered girl group under SM Entertainment, has the official fan colour of pastel rose pink. SNSD's is pastel rose. OH snap! Cat fight! Well, with 9 against 4, it's pretty obvious who won that contest. So with SNSD being so popular, they kept their pastel rose balloons and SM Ent. had to change CSJH The Grace to pearl pink. Now, you guys might say "OH but Shin-B, the names of the colours are different so stop bitching!". I'm not saying this because I think "everyone's should be different!". I'm saying this because I'm bored. And that it's ridiculous that fans are so nitpicky about the colours that represent them. But let me put this into perspective for all of you so you can share my understanding (or lack thereof of this situation):
CSJH The Grace's new pearl pink
Yes, I can see they are slightly different. But holy balls. Let it go. Who's really going to care if they look similar.
But it gets better (or... worse I guess):
FT Island's original fan colour was pearl rainbow blue. Super Juniors is pearl sapphire blue. After School's was metal periwinkle. f(x)'s is light metal periwinkle. ELFs were all over that shit. They started protesting so much (along with f(x) fans) that PLEDIS and the PlayGirlz/Boyz had to change from metal periwinkle to yellow. Again, let's take a look:
Seriously. There's enough difference that it shouldn't be a problem. But one prissy ELF had to further complain stating that, "From far away, they look the same! FT Island and After School HAVE TO CHANGE!!!!!111!"
God forbid any idols pick anything remotely close to pearl red or else Cassiopeias will be pulling out the pitch forks.
Maybe everyone should start looking into more innovative things like YG with their bandannas and specialized glow sticks (such as Big Bang's looking like a crown and Se7en's in the shape of a 7).
I'm waiting for the day idols choose livestock as their signature fan symbols. Coming from Canada, I shouldn't have a problem carrying a sheep to future concerts.
