    What Would You Do If Your Favorite Idol Died?

    Previously I'd never really thought about it.

    But recent events such as Taeyeon getting into a car wreck and the tensions between North Korea and South Korea/U.S. have really made me think about it.

    How would I react/feel if something ever happened to Yoona?

    I mean I don't know her. She's just someone I admire as a fan from afar.

    I used to never understand those who cried and grieved when John F. Kennedy (American President) was assassinated. Or those that cried and were strongly affected when Princess Diana was killed.

    I thought.. why are you guys so emotionally invested in that person? You don't even know them.

    But yet here I am.

    I'm actually worried.

    With a strike against Seoul a real possibility, it makes me actually worried.

    Worried in a general way for the entirety of South Korea and all those who have their lives there.

    But in a specific way I'm having to grapple with what my reaction would be if Yoona were to be hurt or god forbid killed in some sort of act of war.

    I think it would really affect me.

    I think I'm more emotionally invested than I thought.


    What about you? Do you worry about this? How would you react if something happened to your favorite idol?

    Hmm...

    It's an interesting topic because we all don't personally know our favorite idols, but we've grown attached to them because of the internet.

    I think that obviously, most of us would grieve, but I don't think it would affect us as much as losing someone we actually know in real life, unless one is a sasaeng of course.

    We're all emotionally invested in people who don't even know we exist and it's quite silly, but it's the reality.

    Who knows, honestly? I'm just praying that no one in South Korea will be hurt.

    I think it would affect me too considering the degree of impact they had to me. I can't just imagine how it could happen. I'll probably sulk myself to sleep at nights. It's really a sad thought though we all know death will really find its way sometimes but I'm that kind of fan who prays guidance for all the people who I looked up too or I'm a fan of, call me weird I guess.

    What would I do? I would probably CRY SO HARD LIKE A BABY!! And probably there would be times that I would feel lost. But I know life goes on...

    WHY WOULD YOU ASK SUCH A QUESTION :waterr:

    Anyway.... I don't think we'll ever really know a person 100%. We just make an image of idol just like how we make an image of a friend or a family member so it will be just as devastating as close member dying. :cryingr:

    I don't know them personally,
    but Kpop is one of the most important aspects of my life
    my biases are the only persons who make me feel happy

    So yes, I would cry and grieve a lot

    I don't think I would be devastated. I have had some losses in my life, but even if it's bit cruel for me.. I think I can truly just count the death of my cat since the others didn't really affect me (which disturbs me a bit). Like.. I don't think I'd be devastated, but I might cry and I would definitely feel empty a bit. Kpop idols aren't really huge part of my life, I have my biases and I feel for many of them when I read up on them, but I don't think of them daily or anything like that. So I'd feel really bad for the loss of their life and not being able to hear from them again, but it wouldn't be personal loss for me necessarily if that makes sense.

    I'd be sad, I mean I wouldn't like their lives to be cut short because of someone else's actions. I will feel emptiness whenever I see them onscreen or listen to their voices from that moment on.

    It wouldn't affect me as much as the death of someone close to me, to be honest.

    I agree! But the younger the idol the harder I would cry.

    Aw yes Chester, he'll be f****** missed. :cryingr: I keep forgetting he's gone even if I have been playing Linkin Park non-stop these days. Such a talented musician, may he rest in peace.

    I thought about this many times and all I could come up with is how much disorder it will make in the kpop world. I think if it indeed happen I might be surprised.... then after I watch a couple of videos, I might end up crying.
