    Listening to it now. I just wish that they wouldnt focus so much on just Army and also hope they touch on some of the negative aspects of the fandom, all the fandoms, that need to change.

    LOVE that youth/fandom/stans/ARMYs are doing their part with social media to thwart the Trumpian virus. hope every and all of them 18 and over register, VOTE and become active in the US’s politics from this point on. get educated, get work experience, vote for effective representatives, run for public office, and CHANGE the legislation that affects people of color in America!

    “These kids are smart and they thought of everything.”

    I laughed out loud when I read this quote. Of course, they did. How did they expect these fans successfully organized events during their idols’ concerts?

      It’s fantastic. I like the kid who said “Best Senior prank ever.” But they’re just getting started, I hope!

    I find it amusing that I’m in the middle of this whole kpop thing and so when Trump was saying how a million people wanted tickets, I just chuckled knowing they were all going to kpop stans. Lol. I’m totally apolitical, but the Internet is a funny place sometimes. Those who control social media control the world.

      You knew that! I love it. I just thought, a million tickets? What a giant lie (again).

    ☹️☹️
    It’s the same as what’s happening to the whole of the East Asian community— doesn’t matter if you’re Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, ACTUALLY Chinese… it’s all the same to people. On the political side of things, the same thing— people will say ‘the Chinese’ when talking about case numbers and how ‘the Chinese’ tried to hide the true numbers, but really, it’s the Chinese GOVERNMENT choice that has nothing to do with its citizens, but it paints a picture and then EVERYONE gets hurt

    Yes, it’s been really sad to watch.

    This saddens me. Always an individual and a whole collective is judged. And the ones that judge would never look at themselves just in case they’ve done something wrong. Blaming others it’s always the easiest part.

DB bosses, this pop up Beanie Box ad and permanent mail envelope are obnoxious, I hope they’ll go away. Although without mary, is anyone reading our comments?

I just read about a girl who told her date that she didn’t like flowers and he showed up with a bouquet of chicken nuggets, thinking of @azzo1!

      He’s going to need a list written on a sticky note (we need to keep a cohesive theme and our sponsors).

        Seriously not a bad idea. Type out an excel spreadsheet of likes and dislikes.

        Dislike: Flowers.
        Like and suitable alternative: Cute stuffed animals resembling Oppa

        Dislike: chicken nuggets
        Like: Shin Ramyun (am I close?)

      How about a bouquet of chocolates?! And he’ll get a bonus point if he made it himself. 😉

    An entire decade and the only Kdramas included are Kingdom and Strong Woman Bong Soon? 🤦🏼‍♀️

      Not very diverse. Mostly European dramas. Hmm!

      Really, Strong Bong-Soon???? WTH?? The writer probably has not seen Misaeng or Signal or Secret Affair on Netflix.
