Here’s a sad reality of popular members and unpopular ones of PRISTIN.

Do you remember the article of Kpopmap dealing with PRISTIN’s Kyla? We introduced the Kyla’s weight issue. Yes, there are still lots of arguing going on her looks and body shape. Some of fans are pointing out that she’s too fat, compare to other members of PRISTIN or just another K-Pop girls.

However, here’s one thing that we all must not forget. Can it be justified to discriminate or hurt someone for his/her weight or looks? It doesn’t happen only among people who aren’t fans of PRISTIN. The same tragedy is happening among those who are saying themselves as ‘PRISTIN’s fans’.

It was PRISTIN’s fan signing event and a series of pictures got uploaded on the Internet. There are several photos including each member of PRISTIN and fans taking photos of them. In most of photos, the cameras of fans are pointing at the members who are standing in front of them. Nevertheless, in a picture of Kyla, all the cameras point other side where the other members are standing. 

Netizens who saw those photos said, “It’s too sad. How could they be that cruel?” and “She must feel embarrassed”. On the other side, some netizens claimed that Kyla deserves it because of her idleness. Still, this group is put on the spot by arousing the controversy of idols’ body. More specifically, of idols being obliged to be thin. What do you think about it? Do you agree with fans captured in the photos?

Jimin is my bias in AOA – love her! But if I photograph Jimin (only) at a fan meeting, I’m discriminating against Seolhyun, Hyejeong, Yuna? 

The simple issue is that Kyla isn’t popular, and its too convenient to blame society. Kyla lacks fans, not because she’s different – its because she isn’t! Not every teenager gets to be ‘idolized’ – a unique talent does.

Shindong, Amber, (even Jimin)… aren’t ‘typical idols’ but they are funny, charismatic and incredibly talented. And they all have huge fan followings. Like them, Kyla will need to find a way to stand out.

Actions like this from a small fraction of the fandom makes Pristin’s fandom as a whole a crappy one. The whole fandom’s reputation is being brought down by these kinds of unbelievably dumb actions. And I am talking not only about the above post but for all those negative reactions towards member Kyla and some other members who have been ignored once or twice. Bullying idols inside their very own fandom is really pathetic.

that last photo is tragic! but this is show business and its her responsibility to attract fans. people are allowed to choose whom they photograph.
