    I have become obsessed with kpop since 2 years ago! My favorite groups are bts and black pink. I love mic drop, lost and dope (at the moment) by bts and as if it's your last by blackpink. I wish to see them in real life (which is impossible!) an meet them. However I have come across a lot of people who seem to love mocking them. Some people even pull their eyes and say Chong Chang Chong (which isn't even Korean!) whilst others try to reassure me by saying it is only a phase and I will soon be out of it. Once someone told me that north Asians can only be cute and not pretty which made me furious! How should I make such people understand and stop mocking them? How should I respond? They just don't seem to realize a song can be loved even if its language is unknown (like Spanish songs.) What should I do??

      Just leave them to it.They can carry on saying things that you know is not true.And if they don't like the songs then they don't like it.I like korean music and dramas but I wouldn't say am obsessed and yes some people do question me why I like it and I just say because it sounds really good if you put aside the fact that its a different language.

      Don't listen to them, their opinion isn't really important. K-Pop is very popular with international fans. If you like K-Pop and it makes you happy, go for it! I have been a K-Pop fan for about eight/nine years now.

      BTS are becoming well known in the west, especially the US. They are appearing on Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel soon, so maybe they will have a world tour? I'm not a huge fan but I really liked Blood Sweat and Tears.

      ayyy i like bts too !

      also you kinda gotta just ignore them. it sucks that people are saying that but people are ignorant and judgemental and as long as you know that you're in the right and they're in the wrong then you're good.
