Y’all, I Got Something To Say...

I’m sorry you guys, to all the people who got offended by this. You don’t have to read this if you don’t care. I didn’t expect this much hate. XD At first I didn’t care, but then I realized that people were really mixing up what i was trying to say. Even though I made up for some things, I still want to apologize for my ignorance and ranting instead of thinking. If I was thinking, and I wasn’t, I wouldn’t have posted this at all. I’m usually not like this, so when I re-read this, I was very disappointed. I was very surprised that I said such things. I was mad that day. Just so y’all know, I’m not using that as an excuse. I should’ve thought things through. XD I hope y’all accept my apology for all the dumb things I said and forgive me. This is much better right?

    why do you think just because people like the same groups that automatically means we are a “family”. i don’t give a shit about any of you and i certainly don’t want to be a “family”. just like your kpop groups and mind your own buisness. that’s the problem with armys these days. lmfao i love bts but i’m not an army and i don’t want anything to do with any of them.

    I only responded so late, because this website wasn’t working for me for a long time and I was really busy. I don’t get how I’m not minding my own business. By “family,” I meant that I can talk to them when I’m going through troubles or when I can’t talk to my actual family about things. I believe that family should be people that you can talk to about certain things that you wouldn’t usually find yourself, not specifically you, saying to acquaintances/friends. I look to ARMYs when I can’t find anyone to talk to. Many times, I find other ARMYs reaching out to others about their problems and other people, and me, end up helping each other out through them. I know that sharing personal problems publicly seems they’re an attention seeker, but sometimes the ones we love most are many miles away. I know that I can’t always talk to the people around me, but knowing that I can count on others, makes me feel less lonely. I’m sure that many ARMYs may feel that way, too. But if any ARMY doesn’t want to be apart of our “family,” I’m okay with it. Not everyone has to agree with me, and I understand that. What’s okay is that you don’t classify as an ARMY and you don’t want anything to do with them. I understand why you wouldn’t want to be an ARMY. I don’t care if someone doesn’t care about me when it comes to people on the internet, because it doesn’t affect me. What’s not okay, is that you assumed my meaning on why I thought we were a “family.” Don’t assume what you thought I meant, by just a few words.

    Ok bb i understand that being an army is so special and it helps in a special way. However there are so many fandoms that have been so insulted by Army's, and you said that u had answered my question, last time i checked websites that have kpop news on them arent this biased. You on the other hand are going to far. To label kpop fans as ARMY was the first mistake you made. IDC if its family ( no offense ) idc what it is, these things should not be put on a article and they shouldnt be published because its an insult to the kpop fans that have been there before bts was even started. So for u to go around and say that, i think its very wrong. Second mistake, you might feel like its family and all that but to others armys are nothing but a pain in the ass, most of them don't even sit there and think "dang BTS is so talented im glad i stan a group like this." Like i said, this shouldnt be in an article.

    As someone who likes BTS and enjoys their music, this "Persecution Complex" that is constantly being exhibited by BTS Fans/ARMY is really growing tiresome. Literally every K-Pop website or forum of late will contain threads started by ARMY's complaining, kvetching, belly-aching and just plain whining about "how misunderstood they are, not all of them are bad, other fandoms hate us, blah, blah, blah, ad infinitum".


    Here's a simple formula for ARMY's to observe that will solve all your problems. You don't want to be seen as annoying? Then stop being annoying and constantly telling everyone how mistreated you all are. You want other fandoms to stop hating on you? Then don't put down other fandoms or attempt to distance yourself from K-Pop by referring to other fandoms as "K-Poppies".


    ARMY's have done a remarkable thing with BTS and helped propel them to international superstardom. But the same fandom that helped their ascent will be the same ones that cause folks to lose interest in the group because of the toxic elements of the fandom.

    This "Persecution Complex" as you call it, is real emotional hurt for some people. And I don't like to dismiss feelings.


    I try to never talk about ARMY problems, but this is the place for it anyway.

    I know what people think is annoying and I do not spam other fandoms or give hate to them. And I agree with you with the 'k-poppies' word, I don't like when ARMY use that. But I always try to educate people, not to hate them.


    The thing is, your argument is invalid to me the moment you generalize a collective. We are all individuals with feelings. Let's try to not forget that. Of course I think all of this applies on ARMY and

    viceversa. ARMY is just the bigger fandom right now

    But the thing is we can't control everybody. Personally, I am an ARMY and I often find myself having to apologise for other ARMYs/BTS fans that find themselves to be entitled and rubbing other people the wrong way. That's the problem. Not everybody is like that, that is a fact, I know more ARMYs outside of AKP that are just the sweetest things ever, but since this obnoxious part of this fandom is..well..so obnoxious, and there's no denying that, then it's almost like that's everything other people see. I don't find fair to be stigmatized already from the sentence "I am an ARMY" when many people in this fandom don't even want to unnerve anybody, myself included. So it makes sense to be upset. I do agree though that if things go on like this, people will get turned off from BTS just because of that (superficial layer, if I might add) annoying portion of BTS fans, but right now I can only contribute on calling out the "bad eggs" and show that you can be an ARMY and you can be multifandom at the same time with no hard feelings. Hopefully it'll make some sort of difference...


    Note: this article has good intentions, the thing is it just goes entirely wrong at it xD Like, BTS isn't separate from k-pop, I mean what? xD BTS has tried so hard to be considered both musicians and k-pop idols and take pride in it and then people separate them from it? I just don't know anymore sometimes. xD

    It's a very simple problem you're describing: in any large group of people, there'll be a bunch of idiots. And there's nothing you can do about it, because when you tell stupid people they're stupid, they don't get it.

    So there's also a very simple solution: Just like what you like, and be reasonable. Ignore idiots. Literally all your problems can be solved by that.

    People think you are some way just because you like a certain group? -> Be reasonable, they'll change their views of you.

    They don't change their views regardless? -> Proceed to step two: They're idiots, ignore.

    Someone says you can't be multi-fandom? -> Idiots, ignore.

    An ARMY you know is insulting other groups? -> Again, ignore.

    fake armys are the biggest problem, who are giving armys a bad image. those are the ones, who dont care about bts at all and only know how to bring shame to them with making a way too big hype over them, while hating on everyone else on a daily basis.


    real armys and real fans of any idol are learning from their bias, to respect each other. many idols have some of their best friends in other groups, they also work together with other artists all the time and they are mature enough to know, how pathetic, childish, stupid and shameful it is, to act like this and attack others out of jealousy.

    Segregation.

    For example, I was into Kpop way before I finally discovered BTS and I enjoyed belonging to a Kpop community. But after I became ARMY I started to feel segregation. As if being an army does not belong to the Kpop family anymore.

    Guys, I don’t think that being an ARMY and a KPop fan are two different things. I think that you’re only an ARMY is you don’t stan any other groups. I understand why you got mixed up with what I said. I separated the two, because some things were just about ME and the things I’VE experienced MYSELF, while being a KPop fan in general and others on being an ARMY. I’m sorry for the misunderstanding

    Look, yeah, these things are annoying, but there are other ways to deal with this than ranting on allkpop.

    Yeah I'm an ARMY and I guess we're somewhat of a family but honestly we don't even know most of the other ARMYs out there we just like the same band.

    No actually people don't expect you to like only BTS or one band they expect you to know more bands if they are true kpop fans

    There are haters for everything

    This is unnecessary

    Allkpop needs to check what people are publishing

    I like BTS. But I never gonna join their fandom. I surely don't want other fans hate me just for liking other groups than BTS and being multifandom. I definitely don't want to be responsible for shit other armys are pulling. And I for sure don't need other armys hating on me in case I won't like new BTS song. Happened to me already. I dared to say that Idol wasn't my thing and as a result many armys hated me, spammed my YT only for having my own mind and taste. So, no thank you. I will silently support BTS, listen to their songs (mostly from 2014-2016) and enjoy their music without being a part of fandom with horrible reputation.

    8. Apparently people think that there’s a law on how many times you can watch a video.

    - Referring to trying to get the record for the most views in 24 hours I assume. Do you watch it solely to watch the video and listen to the song or is it the record you are after? Is this what you are referring to about how many times you can watch a video?

Apparently, those don’t seem to matter right now. XD I’m not a very biased person, which is why I just barely get myself involved in voting.
