With the rising and evolving of technology it brought about social media and different platforms or websites but with all that came monsters behind keyboards and screens. Well the anonymity did make it much easier for the coward to hide but shoot there opinions but are they truly cowards or do the victims of online hate deserve the hate they receive? In recent times i have become an avid supporter of korean music or better known as K-POP and became a fully pledged fan girl. While wondering which band do i support, ofcourse an accomplished Exo-l for we are one. I mean have you heard the skill sets and pipes of Byun Baekhyun, for being a hot snack is just but a bonus.
Away from my fan girling moments many bands have appeared in the South Korean entertainment industry and among them being BTS[ i mean who doesn’t love Jimin]. yes am an Exo-l but i love other bands too. Apart from the crazy fanwars happening there are malicious commenters, seasangs[obsessive fans], and anti-fans have flooded in almost every musical industry around the globe.
Malicious comments have really damaged some of the best artists in the entertainment industry leaving many battling with mental diseases, traumas or even death. Although the agencies contracted to these artists have tried to sue such people they definitely can’t get every evil commentor. i had a conversation with my brother which he claimed if it was him getting some of those bad and hateful comments he wouldn’t be fazed by them but can you totally not be fazed by all that? I totally disagree fot messing with one’s mind has proven to be so easy just by using the meanest of words.
South Korea has been one of the most affected industry with hateful comments causing to the loss of a few of the nations best artist. [may they rest in eternal peace] Big question is what’s the main cause of that? It might be harsh to the eyes to which i apologize but truth is the self-righteous culture and upbringing in the industry to where you are constantly viewed as a perfect human being who can not make a mistake forgetting of the existence of feelings or of being a human being. I do get a bit disturbed because of seeing hateful comments because someone got married because he or she is an idol. I believe the small minded thinking might really lead to more bitter and sad losses which we really wouldn’t to incur but due to our selfishness or being an enemy of progress the worst end up happening. For one i don’t get why an idol marrying is a problem i mean its not the marriage that makes music rather than his or hers talents.
When people stop viewing celebrity as Gods but rather as humans who will eventually make mistakes as do we stops then the true happiness of them prevails and good music or movies are made. Isn’t it a pity to see the same celebrity showing up at concerts or music shows and singing there hearts out with a smile that doesn’t reach there eyes because we robbed off there happiness but they are busy genuinely making us happy. I wonder whoever made us the judges for right and wrong.
Looking back to the artist we have lost like Sulli i agree it wasn’t the fault of only the hateful commentors but even us who saw and never stood up for her, us who just watched as she got pushed into a dark corner, us who loved her music, her movies but in the end we did nothing for her while she struggled to give us everything she had, us the cowards. The guilt makes me really sad that am not sure of how to remember her in my mind either as her who brought her talent to the table and wowed everyone or the her that we stole her joy from and eventually killed her. I’m sorry Sulli that we failed you.
We have lost many more artists because of our cowardice and our selfishness. I saw people trending hashtags on twitter after we lost a really good soul but what does it help when ones already gone? if we can’t protect them alive why bother when dead? When people make mistakes it proves there humanity and proves a learning experience for both sides. If your opinion has got to be an insult or a derogatory comment keep it to yourself. So what if someone got married? so what if someone got a girlfriend? So what if someone added a bit of weight? Such instances shouldn’t be condemning people to death for i rather have them marry and added weight than dead because of words we carelessly used.
Incase we haven’t learnt from recent cases i wonder will we ever learn or will it have to be a repetition till it happens to your family. Fighting against this comments may save a life and living your life and letting others live theirs too. Nobody asks to be worshipped you know, for most of these artists they just want to bring you good quality content and live their lives so let not your entitlement to them not cloud your thinking. you might be a fan girl as i am but you don’t own the reasoning to them making there choices. Showing love and appreciating them doesn’t kill rather brings on motivations and inspirations. so for those who didn’t deserve the hate I will fight to be a good human being. For EXO Chen i will hold the right opinions, For BTS Jimin will fight to protect a wonderful human being.[ EXO-L’S AND ARMY can faithfully co-exist ] In memory of SULLI and GO ARA.
Also to our Kim Jonghyun you worked hard and i miss you.
