    I'm Dying! They Have No Idea...


    Sometimes I forget the rest of the world has no clue about the greater kpop landcape and its celebrities.

    I mean you get so immersed in it.

    Kpop has pretty much literally taken the place of my Western media consumption.

    My "celebrities" are kpop celebrities.

    But for the rest of the world?


    Who is Tzuyu?

    Who is Jeongyeon?





    Just a couple of random girls in a crowd apparently.

    Watching some performers do some kpop song no one's ever heard of.

    Lol.

    Like seriously that one guy. Glances over and doesn't even bat an eye. No big.


    DUDE YOU ARE STANDING NEXT TO THE FUCKING ANGEL FROM TAIWAN!

    TZU F-ING YU.....

    DID YOU HEAR ME? TZU F-ING YU!

    AND HER SISTER!


    THAT'S THEIR SONG PLAYING!





    I'd be freaking out like a 13 year old girl at a One Direction concert.

    Composure?

    Hell no.


    But it's our world I guess.


    Well... Mostly..

    I guess BTS is making waves and all that jazz.

    I don't know all the celebrities either.

    It's just funny to see what to me would be one of the most instantly recognizable individuals in the world, be just another girl for others.

    Yeah I remember hearing about this but never saw it.

    That shit is crazy.

    I want to lay out any guy that glances at Tzuyu and acts like she ain't the most beautiful girl he's ever seen.

    I didn't mean it in the literal sense lol. :rolleyes:

    That "no one" knows about kpop in the West.

    It's called exaggeration.

    Most everyone in the crowd has limited knowlege of kpop to the extent that they do not recognize two of its most high profile figures.

    Thus my post.

    Probably not if they were only popular within the last 5-8 years.

    :teeheek:

    I've been in kpop/kdrama for 10 years, but starting around year 2 it gradually took over my Western attention.
