Shocked Fans rant

July 12, 2011

Well, as you guys all knew. I ended my Kpop fanaticism a year ago. But to be honest, I couldn’t. I’m still into Kpop but since I’m working now, I can only follow one. And I followed INFINITE. The group I think actually will be one of the greatest as I said in my previous posts. Just give them the chance and opportunity. They can be the one to lead the Hallyu wave in the world. Them and SHINee.

Saying that, I have been active in fan forums. Its there that I get details on the boys. Right now, I’m a member of NoLimitInfinite and OverZero. Well I used to be in OverZero. Do correct me if I’m wrong but you’re allowed to give criticism in forums right? I was like that in OverZero and the nasty Administrators block me for being like that.

If you’re wondering what I said, here’s my message. My last 5 messages.

I think this is a bit of an exaggeration. With the difficulty of their routine, they need more than 4 hours a day of rest.

I really don’t like this set up for forums. I can’t find my way around. Why are the news article not arrange by dates? I’m trying to look for news on their Japan debut but the dates gets me confuse.

There should have at least a group photo. Anyways….

Please do tell me if any of these messages is worth me banning because I don’t know why it should be? Or maybe I should reflect on myself? Do they want to read only, “Oppa, you’re the best.”, “They’re so underappreciated”, “They’re so in sync.”, and “They’re so handsome.”? I’m 23 years old. I can’t be like that. Not that I ever was.

I’m upset yes but more of disappointed that INSPIRITS have become these kind of fans. Its this same reason that I never got into SNSD. SONEs are just too much to handle. And now, it seems like INSPIRITS are heading on that direction. I dread the day that INFINITE performs on Dream Concert and have everyone in the crowd in silence.

A few days ago there was a war supposedly between two subbing teams of INFINITE that started when one of the members of a subbing team mock the efficiency of the other subbing team. I’m not going into details of that. You can find it in tumblr. I’m pointing out the obvious rise of negativity in the fandom. I Love INFINITE. I really do. But those who call them fans would really drive anyone away.

There’s a big difference between negativity and criticism. The things I posted, those were criticisms. The thing that OverZero did to me, that was negativity. That was plain cruel. I’m really really upset right now. It was never like this when I was an active fan in VIP, WonderFuls, and Cassiopeia. No one was ever driven away. As I said, since I’m working now, I can only follow one group. And it seems like I followed the wrong one.

INFINITE, I do hope you succeed. With all my heart, I really do. And I hope you’ll gain mature fans. Fans that would be open minded and are TRUE. This is the end I guess.
