Hi guys! So last year I did a K-pop survey as part of one of my university modules; this time for my dissertation I've made a BTS one! I would really appreciate it if you guys could fill it out, it shouldn't take too long. Please go into as much detail as possible and if you're comfortable with it, leave your details in the last section as I'll be conducting written or Skype interviews with some Army! The dissertation is covering boyband fandoms from different eras, so if you know anyone who was or still is a Beatles fan (Beatlemaniac), Backstreet Boys fan (BSB Fan) or One Direction fan (Directioner), let me know so I can send on those surveys. Thank you so much in advance, if you have any questions just ask! Survey link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1dWgOIJOpa4W8gaIDrVOa_dysnCB3M1fs_F0K54woOCE
I just felt like I needed to make this quick thread, because I personally am a fanboy of BTS among other Korean groups and artists. Since getting into Korean music and culture at the early age of 12, I've never really experienced the horrible backlash by the community that comes as a side-effect of being a fanboy. Luckily, BTS is a very open group and we all know that they support fanboys. The only problem I really have with the community is that fanboys are assumed to be homosexual or bisexual. I myself am a straight male and a proud ARMY. In a way, the fact that I never really revealed my interest in Korean music to anyone kept me from experiencing struggles that many fanboys have to face. I got involved in public fanbases only as I became older and ready to face such derogatory behavior. It has been rather easy for me to adjust, seeing as the forums and chatrooms I have been in have all been rather appropriate and hate-less much like this one. I'm really interested in the fact that such a negative view is placed upon male fans in the K-pop and K-music communities. Please write your thoughts below and answer the poll (which, knowing the kindness of this server, should have the predicted outcome xD).
