    Is there any idol you really admire? Why do you admire them?

    I admire Jihyo I watched a video on sixteen when they were saying she is too fat to be an idol and when she debuted she got a lot of hate for being "fat" which is totally stupid as she is not fat. So I admire the fact she is so strong and carried on despite people calling her ugly and fat.

    Here is a similar video that showed her struggle-


    I also admire Wendy for the same reason as Jihyo. I admire Yeri, she is young and gets a lot of hate but she seems to handle it really well and keeps on going which is admirable.

    I admire Taeyeon for a similar reason lool she's had it so tough...and i've been with her for 10 years and I genuinely didn't take in how drastic her weight loss/gain had been until her persona concert. finding this video was an eye opener.



    And of course I admire Jessica...i can never imagine how it would feel losing 8 people in your life so publicly...

    Are you okay with admiring entire groups?

    I'd pick BIGBANG and Monsta X. BB for overcoming a really difficult debut, plus a bunch of scandals that would have shattered most other groups. Monsta X because they're really, really talented, hard-working and completely underrated. :yesr:

    All idols really

    They barely ever sleep enough
    They have no freedom, no freedom of speech no nothing
    They go on crazy diets to lose weight, I can’t do that because I’m a fat a** oink oink
    They have to look perfect 24/7 or else people call them ugly

    Seohyun is someone I wish I could learn from, she isn't afraid to try new things and assume every part of herself. Plus she's smart, beautiful and talented. 3 things I don't have...

    Okay I know some people don't consider Jessi to be an idol but idc

    Hyorin and Jessi are my two most favorite people in all of the Korean music scene. I have so much respect for them as two noticeably tanned skinned women who don't try to lighten their skin in an effort to succumb to the beauty standards (like most idols try to). Jessi even implied that she reads some of the nasty comments people write about her and I really can't imagine how it feels to have more than hundreds of people coming at you and telling you to kill yourself for god knows what. Both of them work so hard and I really really hope they get big one day.

    Most of Monsta X and Seventeen because they are wonderful, hardworking, humble boys. Wonho especially because he not only dated a trans man predebut (allegedly to protect him, either way, he knew the risk) and acknowledges and embraces their male fans and breaks down gender stereotypes. He also cares about fans to a ridiculous degree.

    I didn’t know about that regarding Wonho but I did some quick research and it appears that the individual Wonho dated didn’t have transgender surgery till many years later (warning: cursing/swearing at following link): https://onehallyu.com/topic/363447-so-wonhos-ex-girlfriend-is-now-a-trans-man/

    So I’m not sure it’s fully accurate to say Wonho “dated a trans man” when I don’t know if it’s even known whether the individual in question even was contemplating transgender surgery or transgenderism overall, at the time of dating Wonho. Some of the photos of them together, they just look like a regular girlfriend/boyfriend couple

    There's a lot of stuff that is honestly there to back it up and I really don't feel like digging it all out right now. Normally I type pre-transition but as I was out of the house and in a rush I didn't this time.
