    Are Any Idols "Sacred" To You?

    Are there any idols that you find it hard to trash, even in a joking manner?

    Not necessarily that you're delusional about their faults, but that you just like them so much it's hard to mock them or rag on them.

    For me it's Yoona (I know big surprise).

    It's not that I think she's actually perfect. No one is. And it's not that I don't realize her limitations. But I do find it hard to joke about her or criticize her publicly.

    It doesn't necessarily bother me if others do it. But I can't find it in myself to do it. I see myself always as her defender.

    It's honestly sort of similar I'm sure to how a spouse feels about their partner or a father (mother) feels about their child. Like you recognize their limitations but you would never openly mock them and you would always try to help them and defend them.

    Anyway.

    Are there any idols you feel that way about?

    Nope. I think if you truly respect and like someone, you gotta be honest about their flaws.

    Like I'd fuck/date/marry Yoona any day and I'd accept her as she is.. BUT.. Even without knowing her really, I can't help but feel that there's a really deep materialistic/superficial side to her personality that I would find really unappealing and I'd be critical of it. But I'd still accept it, just wouldn't pretend its not there or avoid criticizing it.

    I didn't say not be honest.

    You can recognize someone's flaws without bashing them or openly criticizing them. That's why I compared it to spouses. If I knew my spouse had a flaw, I wouldn't go to all the neighbors and bitch to them about her or make fun of her. I'd talk to her in private about it.

    I have a list, so be prepared;

    Xiumin
    Youngjae - Got7
    Jhope
    Park Bo Gum (not an "Idol" but you can't not include the guy)

    Those are all I can think of at the moment. They are just so "un-problematic"?? Idk if that's the right word for what I mean so I'll elaborate; they keep themselves to themselves and are literally just people of happiness going about their lives in a happy nice way working hard at what they do so when people give them grief I just can't.

    Mostly all the people I stan with the exception of TWICE and BP RaNia lol, even so, when I tease them it's pretty rare and only with my friends. I'd say the most untouchable is probably f(x) or Yoon Mi Rae (you can't touch the queen. You come at me, I'm coming at you.)

    Obv Hyejeong for me. I feel like even if she does anything very wrong I will still like her and continue to give her my full support. AOA has a sexy concept but I can't find it in me to sexualise her in any way.

    exact same sentiments here. + maybe sometimes Taeyeon but not so much as Yoona. Like you said, I do acknowledge her flaws, a prime one being her acting really being unappealing to me, but I can't find it in me to call out bluntly that 'you know what, her acting sucks', 'it's terrible, awful etc'. I'll most likely just say something along the softer, more rounded lines of 'yes she's definitely not the best out there and she has a lot to improve on'.

    I actually wonder about this occasionally, like why is it that I'm able to mock and tease and 'bash' my other favs but just not some? I literally call moonbyul and solar by teasing nicknames more than I address them by their real names... but Yoona? Difficult.

    (glad he's mentioned often here)
    I couldn't trash Shownu, he's way too nice and genuine.
    I also can't really trash Chaeyeon, even though I don't agree with some habits of her, but it's her decision in the end anyways,
    and I love her too much to see her in a bad light

    Also, Stellar members (except for the new one ofc): They've gone through so much and worked their asses off, showed great dedication, I could never belittle that
