Seventeen: "Why don't they have seventeen members?" Netizens talk about how non K-pop stans view idol groups


Recently, a netizen posted on an online community how non-K-pop stans view idol groups. 

The netizen who created the post explained they're a "Muggle," a person who isn't a K-pop stan and not a fan of TWICE, BTS, NCT, WINNER, etc. They explained they have been around K-pop stans and have friends who are fans of the K-pop idol groups. However, the netizen never took an interest in these groups.

She explained she knows about idol groups and have seen them on broadcast but never became a specific group's fan. She decided to make the online post out of pure boredom and share how non-k-pop fans think of each idol group.

The netizen described each idol group using a few words on how these non-K-pop fans view each boy group idol or girl group idol.

: Billboard

EXO: Growl

Seventeen: The group that doesn't have seventeen members

NCT: Twenty or thirty good looking people group

BTOB: Vocals with humor, who are funny

WINNER: Show Me The Money, 'New Journey to the West', Superstar K, K-pop Star, Masked Singer, the good looking member

TXT: BTS's Juniors, the kids with blue hair

MAMAMOO: Vocals who are funny

GFriend: Refreshing

Netizens have taken an interest in the post and commented on various things in the online community. Some netizens were amazed by BTS being known for the one word Billboard as they have become a global group as some agreed they were shocked to find out that Seventeen didn't have seventeen members.

You all you need to pay attention to the context of articles!! This is from non-kpop fans perspectives, so they aren't going to follow and know everything we kpop fans do. Give them a break, and be happy that your groups have an impact even too those that don't care for the genre.
