    Hi. I'm pink panda. Actually a proud one. There's something that is really bothering me...

    Have u noticed that allkpop tries it's best to ignore apink?? Like they made articles about blood type, 4 members of apink are O (naeun, chorong, hayoung, bomi) but there was no name of any of them. We all know allkpop always makes articles for idols' birthday but NOTHING for namjoo's or their 5th anniversary... (In ig I mean).
    And with eunji's solo. Whenever a group or a solo gets an all kill there's an article about it but nothing for eunji's. And we all know how they always make their articles so that ppl spread hate toward apink.. But why??? Really as a fan it really hurts. We expect them to at least respect them as idols who have been in the industry for 5 years. Is it to much??

    Well, this is a page for international fans and APink doesn't really have a big international fandom so

    They don't have a big inl fandom comparing to some really big groups like gg or 2ne1 but otherwise it's quiet big. And besides inl fans is also including many Asian countries and apink is very big in Asian countries and many of them read the articles grill allkpop so...

    Yes I agree what I'm talking about is that it's really not fair compared to the fame they have. They're not popular in U.s or Europe( which they're still popular just not THAT much) but their quite popular in Asian countries and Middle East they deserve that attention and respect here as well

    I know I've seen these ones ( but again thanks a lot) but I really mean those that I said like why there wasn't any member in the blood type article while 4 of them are O?? They try to make as less articles as they can about them or at least that's how I feel

    I don't think japanese or chinese fans use ALLKPOP to know about their faves groups
    I'm pretty sure they use fancafe for everything related to their favorite groups and APink's fancafe is pretty big

    tbh i really dont ever see anyone on this forum talking about apink or saying that they stan them, listen to them, like them, pay attention to them etc.
    i dont think theyre as popular as you like to make them out to be internationally
    but like others said there are articles about them, you just missed them

    You'd be surprised how many fans feel that their faves don't get enough articles written about them
    Literally have had big 3 stans saying their biases don't get enough articles
    But it's akp it's to be expected

    unless they are more popular than other big3 groups in those countries, yes it's unfair

    you don't know whether they are or not so u still shouldn't excluded. kpop is pretty big especially in asia in general. not just from the big 3. kpop songs are regularly played in local radio station.
