    As in they don't put effort to stream and buy albums. It's not necessary but it seems to be part of the fan culture in Kpop.

    The fandoms could be huge but just not do all this number stuff

    EXO-Ls are known for buying albums for EXO but somehow we're lazy when it comes to streaming. :confused:

    there are no lazy fandoms...

    stats depend on size and concentration of fans in respective countries focusing on certain stuff...


    exo or sm fans are focused in numbers in china...that is why their album sales are pretty high but yt views are less...

    similar examples can be used to explain all groups numbers...

    though i would say bg fandoms generally tend to be more effective in streaming and stuff

    I mean, streaming is silly and pointless anyway, and the majority of fandoms I'm in don't really care about it anyway so all my fandoms lol.

    *cough* VIPs *cough*
    We are muggles now.....

    3. BIGBANG’s concerts are mostly individual fandoms + Muggles rather than BIGBANG fandomㅋㅋㅋ

    "BB sales were always lower than other top groups because YG was obsessed with bragging about GP validation rather than loyal fandom (which is exact opposite of what SM did and does).
    They never focused on making their fans want to buy albums (and you'd be surprised how many people called themselves BB fans and didn't have even one album, and I mean in Korea where it was available) but more on getting them to concerts, streaming and buying singles.

    So because YG wanted so bad to be that edgy snowflake you can't really compare BB fandom based on album sales only. In that area their fans were pretty lazy. You have to look at concerts too which are huge for top groups and so were BB's."

    I can confirm to this. I'm a fan, but buying their albums? Naaah man. No thanks.

    I wouldn't call Carats lazy but theyre just so so inconsistent lol like something needs to urge them to stream/vote but theyre never failing with albums tho so yeah we all have our weaknesses

    also i guess both a positive and negative trait but we're just not as competitive as others we're not setting milestones and then following it unlike other big fandoms i wonder how much better svt would be doing if us carats will just be louder in everything haha i think with the recent amount of sales though everyones getting a slap in the face that we're really on the rise now and must help the boys even more (but not being competitive gives us a peaceful life too for the majority and it's nice to enjoy)

    Kpoppies : why are ARMYs so obsessed with number? We don't put effort to stream and buy albums, but still can enjoy the music
    *NEWS* ___ group is disbanded
    Kpoppies : why? Literally why? They are talented group
    Me : bltch it's because y'all didn't stream and buy albums and just focus on your fancam in twitter

    Pink pandas ( Apink fandom) at least for streaming. Inner circles are a great fandom but they are too chill.

    EXO-Ls are lazy streamers, although they buy lots of albums.

    Can confirm too. My then roommate is a long-time fan but all she has done is to go to concerts and watch Youtube vids.

    I wouldn't go to the point where saying a fandom is lazy. I would rather say there are some fandoms which are very active, maybe a bit too much. Armys and blinks are scary :sweatr:and I say that as an army but I'm chill comparing to some others.

    Yeah, another user here also confirm to this. She said she's a multi-stan. When she stan Bigbang (or being a VIP), she was so lazy to buy their album, but when she stan other groups, she bought a lot of albums. What even? How is that even possible?
