When fanboys are like fangirls

Perhaps you have noticed by now that one of the main reasons we started and continue to operate this site is just to be a place where we can freely vent annoyance with and/or mock delusional kpop stans. In the beginning this was actually specifically centered around T-ara, which had stans trying to censor us to only speak the purest words in regard to them while they were on stage doing stuff like this:

Hyomin earning solo promotions in 2010. So fucking hot super cute!
Yet as annoyingly anti-reality as that sort of attitude is, the way of the fangirl goes in other directions as well. We've all seen fangirls who can't comprehend a reality where their oppas are dating someone, or why their oppas committing a crime is due the codified legal punishment, or simply, perhaps, that their oppas are not the center of the universe and people are allowed to like someone other than their oppas without it being an injustice. Fanboys can manifest this insanity as well.


See here our local insane troll bodhicat1, devoted surfer of the delulu wave, who seems to think that if he comments about Bambino on nearly every single one of our articles that mentions sexiness at all for months he'll convince us to become a Bambino stanning blog, even though he already has his own fucking blog for stanning Bambino. Apparently that is not enough for him. Apparently other people aren't allowed to admire or acclaim anyone but Bambino without being told how wrong they are or how much better Bambino is... according to the fantasy land in his head.

You see, this comment is his reaction to the results for the latest Kpopalypse survey. Yes, a public survey across two main blogs and however many other channels Kpopalypse spread it to involving hundreds of unguided volunteer responses that generally span the full spectrum of the kpop inetz scene. Somehow, when all of these people offer their own nominations for the idols they personally find sexy and Bambino doesn't even register, it is a farce and we lose cred. Who, exactly, is the "we" losing cred? I guess everyone who lives in reality.


Instead of just not caring and doing his own thing and enjoying Bambino—just like, well, Bambino themselves don't care and simply enjoy being Bambino—he lives in a world where if everyone doesn't share his level of exclusive admiration for them and declaration of them as the leaders of kpop, it is a disgrace that must be addressed and corrected. Truly bonkers. All of this, of course, is without mentioning that Bambino is not even a real kpop group with ambitions of the big time but some Gangnam unnies who primarily act as go-go dancers for local bar events with a facade of kpop solely to cash in on government subsidies.

"They're dance hoes who don't even care to be famous."
Don't be a bodhicat1. Live in reality and don't fight it when it disagrees with you. Like who you like and let others like who they like without harassing them like a clueless dick. Be satisfied with harassing your own clueless dick.

  1. I knew somebody was going to take up that shitpost as soon as I read it. What a pathetic loser.

    I don't even consider Bambino K-pop, I don't even know if they ever released any "original" music. For me they are just some damn hot dancesluts.

    1. That's what they are. Korea is not some sexually locked down Victorian society. There is some hint of puritanism that manifests mostly in their social front and how they shelter the kids, but it's to keep up appearances. Like the rest of Asia, they keep a seedy (misogynist) underbelly to the conservative face and everybody knows it and they have practical notions about it.

      A study done by the Korean government found that 1 in 5 men visited a prostitute more than once a month. You think that is a society that gives a shit about kpop girls not being upfront enough? Shit, the majority of cutesy kpop stuff geared for uncle fans is to preserve at least a contrived mirage of virginal sweetness in some kind of perverted social game. Kpopalypse once wrote an article on that/desensitization but I'm too lazy to dig it up.

      The basic gist is that kpop is an industry officially for teenage girls yet also pandering to perving men. For the former it is officially censored by MOGEF to keep up appearances no matter how much the young women are overflowing with sexuality and want to be bad bitches, and then the latter don't care if the girls get to or not because they can pull some ass whenever they want and there are other aspects of femininity that also flips their switch.

      Where does Bambino fit in with all of this? When guys and girls are released from sheltered hell of high school and want to party, Bambino is at that party as the T&A representing the revelry. They aren't innovating shit and what they do is a separate world from kpop with a different purpose. They are fulfilling a role as old as civilization itself, the somewhat immature and definitely brash/unrefined idea of sexuality that young adults want to let loose in after stepping out from under their parent's thumb... Then they get bored and play pervy mindgames and enjoy kinky office roleplay and "innocent" kpop stuff.

    2. South Korea is probably the most hypocritical society in the world right now.

    5. A part of a country's people is not a whole country's society...

    6. But they're the dominant culture by far in the U.S. The media, Hollywood and PC culture is all driven by the liberals in the U.S.

    9. For the record they released 2 songs. Not sure what the definition of "KPOP" is but if it's Tuesday and they sing, it's KPOP, except when its Saturday & they cover dance, but don't shake their assess too hard or act too sexy. I'd like to know what the "official" definition is, since we all seem to be pursuing the same goal here under this intellectualizing. Best article I found on the subject is here: http://blog.mjohnso.com/post/139867188096/dispatch-from-the-idol-underground

  2. Are we perhaps going to get "Dumb things fanboys say?"? lol

  3. Maybe the only thing that makes the fanboys a little better is that moment of clarity after they finished fapping

  4. I keep waiting for Eunjung to lick Hyomin's neck. What a disappointing gif.

  5. If I was more determined, I'd come on here and relate everything to Jaehyo.
