Bruh kpop industry is way worse than its fans.Yeah most of the fans seem like hardcore no life obsessed fangirls but its mostly cuz thats the asian idol culture and tbh if you're from the west and listen to kpop you were probably bullied at some time.But kpop industry has done such cruel things to idols u couldnt even imagine
oh yeah I know. I'm just saying that many non Kpop listeners hate on kpop because they associate it with the very prominent and obsessive fanbases which many can find annoying. Therefore they start hating on kpop when in reality what they really hate/don't like, are the fans.
The music in itself Isn't that different from western pop music. Just a different language.
