Fandom is a pretty important aspect of K-POP culture, and fans genuinely drive these singers to succeed even more. Dating back to H.O.T, the fandom culture began and has been continuously growing ever since then.
After a certain point, K-POP groups and idols began releasing "fan songs." These may be official fan songs or unofficial, but they have dedicated songs for the fans, often thanking them and expressing their gratitude and love through the lyrics of the track.
Let's check out some widely loved fan songs that demonstrate the artists' love for the precious fans!
