Bye bye~ I don’t need ignorant followers.
I am posting about the tragedy in Korea because I want my followers to see what is happening in Korea, to see the loyalty of one country in situations like this, to make them pray for the families and the victims, to honor the ones who gave up their life for the others.
Yes, anon you’re right.
A lot of people really doesn’t care about this and that’s actually sad. But most of what you see here on tumblr isn’t acted.
And don’t tell me ”Korea makes a big deal of something like this” and ”the world doesn’t stop turning”.
THIS is the cultural difference between Korean fans and international fans.
A lot of International fans doesn’t know how it is when a whole country cries because of a tragedy that is happening there. most of this fans live in a country where everything continues when something like this happens. They aren’t used to this.
They think ”Why do the Koreans care about this that much?”
That’s called ”respect”
But Korean fans aren’t complaining…They collect money and buy hot packs, hot drinks and food for the people who are waiting for their loved ones.
Parents are crying because their child might suffer right now or in the worst case they are dead.
Some of the students might be fans of the Idol groups. How can they continue promoting knowing one of their fans might be one of the students/victims that are still missing?
Do you even know the pain of loosing a family member, a friend or someone you looked up to?
If yes, then you should show a bit respect to this families.
It was the right thing to cancel the music shows and the schedules of the Idols.
Some countries and people should really take Korea as an example for respect.
To add to this, all the comebacks and TV shows air in Korea and are watched predominantly by Koreans - why would groups and dramas continue airing if Koreans (their target audience) aren’t going to watch because they’re suffering?!! Also, idols themselves are affected. Jonghyun said that he knows 8 people on that ferry and cried during Blue Night. There are more Korean celebrities related to the victims in some way. No one wants to laugh when watching a drama or clap for musicians when their friends and family members are stuck in a sinking ship - most of which are students. No one is forcing you to pray or cry (I myself aren’t praying or crying) but everyone is ought to show respect by spreading those messages/updates and supporting Korea’s decision.
