    How Do You Stan?

    [​IMG]


    So this thread was prompted by @realangel's recent one.

    His got me thinking.

    How do people stan a group?

    Because it seems to me there are two distinct types of "stanners":

    Type 1:

    I stan the group as a whole first, and then individual members secondarily.


    Type 2:


    I stan individual idols first, and then the group secondarily.



    So how do you stan?

    Is it more about the group as a whole?

    Or is your emotional connection first with individual members and then perhaps secondarily with the group?



    Emanresu Stans...:
    TYPE 2

    I stan individual idols first and foremost.

    Then I stan, on a secondary basis, their respective groups.

    I don't consider myself an akgae (sp?) fan.... as I legitimately do love the groups I stan as a whole.

    It's just that my emotional connection is greater to the individual idols than to the groups.

    For instance, as I detailed in @realangel's thread... my emotional connection to Yoona is such that if she were to leave SNSD, I don't think I could continue stanning SNSD. Her place in that emotional investment is far too great and central for me to continue without her. (I'd still like the group no doubt. But it's just not the same.)

    I support SNSD and all Soshi solo activities equally.

    Though I do get that little bit extra excited whenever Taeyeon comes back with a new song because I absolutely love her voice :lover1:

    I'm mainly type 2: I tend to stan one member first then the group follows but if the group doesn't follow then I just stan the idol lol probably why I have clear biases in the groups I stan haha

    I always try to love every member equally in the groups I stan but my bias comes always first. I feel a bit bad about it though.
