Have such weird usernames, like the amount of "jimins-ASSets" or "sehyunsdingdong" I've seen is getting ridiculous. I never see anyone who appreciates a different genre of music do something similar? (Or perhaps I've never come across it.) For example, I've never seen a Drake fan with the username "drizzyshotdog" or "drizzysjellyjam".

Additionally, whenever I see a comment on Youtube by a Kpop fan, another Kpop fan will comment something like "OMG ARMYYYY" or "WE'RE EVERYWHERE"... Um, okay? Is it that astonishing that another person values the same genre of music as you? Out of maybe 40 million K-pop listeners in the world, it's not that unlikely that you won't stumble across one on a social media platform.

But yeah, my main question was why the eccentric usernames?

By the way, I'm not trying to patronise or cause offence to anyone who likes K-pop. Good for you if you do.

I think it's a sign of youth. Weird fandoms for other genres of music exist. Have you never encountered the beyhive, the skeleton clique, MCRmy or little monsters?

I am aware of Beyoncé's Beyhive, yes, but that's just the name of the fandom, I've never seen a fan however call themselves something like "beyoncespopsicles" though. And I know of the Little Monsters. Not sure who the rest are though. :/

thank goodness someone agrees. I really don't understand this fad. I'm sure a lot the people who've jumped onto this K-pop bandwagon are just doing it to keep up with the trend, not because they actually like it.

Nah, it's not that, it's the fandom. Do they even read through the stuff they post? It's actually painful to read. "Jimin's ASSets." Urgh. Not even original m8.
