ITZY hold a lengthy debate about whether a married man is an 'oppa-fan' or an 'uncle-fan'


On March 24, ITZY appeared as guests on MBC FM4U radio program, 'Good Morning FM, Kang Sung Kyu'!

First, ITZY mentioned that they woke up at 4:30 AM in the morning to prepare for their first ever live morning radio broadcast. Then, while receiving comments from listeners, one listener asked if he was classified as an "uncle-fan" or an "oppa-fan", since he is a married man in his thirties and a father of one child.

The ITZY members held a lengthy debate about this topic, as Yuna said, "I think he is more of an 'oppa-fan'. What I know of the definition of 'oppa' is just a male who is older than me."

However, Ryujin argued, "I would think that if we called someone with a wife 'oppa', then the person's wife might get a little upset." Lia put in her two cents with, "I think that regardless of age, a person can be either an 'oppa' or a n 'uncle', but I personally do like the term 'uncle' because it feels very friendly." 

Finally, Yeji commented, "I'll just call them whatever they want to be called."

I agree with Yeji if they wanna be called an oppa fan then call them an oppa fan if they wanna be an uncle fan call them an uncle fan.

Speaking from the age difference from ITZY members and the fans... I think the terminology depends on the person and the vibe they give off. If I was a female and an ITZY member, I would probably call someone like Kim Jong Kook, oppa, even though he's 43. But another person who is also 43, but gives off an uncle vibe would be called uncle.
