K-Pop fandom culture? Love it or hate it, K-Pop fan culture is remarkably unique and stands out from other fandoms in the world.
The way fandoms function, communicate, and connect with each other is almost like one gigantic family. They have their own inside jokes and also their own traditions as well.
Below are the reasons why K-Pop fandoms are none like any other.
The Fan Chants
Fan chants, where the fans shout out the names of the members of the group during the intro of a performance, is one thing that non-fans have easily noticed that makes K-Pop fandoms unique. Usually, fans just scream and wait for their favorite artist or artists to sing during performances, not having a particular organized way of chanting.
During K-Pop concerts, you’ll pretty much always hear a certain chant that each fandom does during the beginning of a song.
While most people use their phones to light up the concert arena, K-Pop fans actually have a particular device that they use to light up the arenas when their idol groups perform.
It’s almost like having their own country. K-Pop fandoms and groups actually have their own colors that represent them.
Fandoms collect photo cards and often times carry them in their wallets. A little memoir for them to keep at all times.
Ads & Billboards
Fandoms spend quite a lot of time, dedication, and money on expressing their love for their K-Pop idols.
