When Korean men head into the army for their mandatory service, girl groups become far more than just cute idols. In fact, girl groups become goddesses, a ray of hope and dream for the young soldiers who yearn for respite from being cooped up in drills, practices, etc. 


SEE ALSO: Go behind the scenes of IU's 'Palette' showcase!


With the annual Armed Forces Day approaching (on October 1), K-Force Daily carried out a survey with 973 Korean soldiers currently in the military to find out who they'd like a visit from the most. Of course, several girl groups made their way to the list.


Family members and significant others (a.k.a. girlfriends) took 1st and 2nd place respectively. From 3rd to 6th place was where some of the hottest girl groups of 2016 showed up.


The girl group solders want to see more than any other ended up being LABOUM with 8.9% of the votes, while next came Red Velvet with 8.6%. TWICE followed with 8.3%, and Cosmic Girls came in last among the selected girl groups with 6.9% of the votes. Aside from girl groups, actress Han Hyo Joo and solo artist IU also made it onto the rankings at 9th and 10th places respectively.

 

We thank and congratulate the above 4 girls groups as well as Han Hyo Joo and IU on behalf of the Korean soldiers for being the hopes and dreams of the young men currently serving the nation.

Maybe they're just fans. And plus, these soldiers aren't 40, 50 year old men or anything. They're still young. Around 19-24 years old.

And this is why it's hard to me a male fan of kpop girls groups. The double standards we get when girls are free to fawn over every boy in kpop.

You need to understand that men and women are not sexual equals. Rape awareness, the importance of consent etc is so much more widespread amongst the female population. Why? BECAUSE men and women are not sexual equals. You are literally that person who justifies black-shaming because "white people also get hate". Like no, black-shaming will never be the same as white-shaming because black people were oppressed by whites; white-shaming doesn't exist. This theory applies to why it's "okay" for girls to "lust over oppas abs".

False. Girls aren't enlisted for 2 years away from society. The double standard doesn't exist in this case, because you're playing with a myriad of different and conflicting variables.

If it was up to you, men's sexual desires would be shunned and shamed and probably be made illegal. No matter how many times you tell yourself, it is not abnormal for men to lust over women. Men find young attractive women....wait for it, ATTRACTIVE. Add to the fact they won't have much female social interaction for 2 years, there is nothing wrong with them letting off some steam and having fun. Go fuck yourself and take your pseudo-feminist social justice indoctrination and stick it up your ass.
