Today in fandom drama, fans of Day6‘s Junghyeok have been suspicious that he’s dating a fan and have compiled evidence in an attempt to prove that.
Brace yourselves (summary below).
So all that shit happened, and the fan he’s supposedly dating then made a post and denied they are an item.
Okay, so basically Junhyeok is maybe or maybe not dating a fan, but the fan definitely got close to Junhyeok. Said fan is attractive, which I’m sure has nothing to do with other fans getting pissed at her for dropping information as a way of humblebragging that she’s close to oppar*. Then, in a completely illogical response to all this, his Korean fansites have allegedly closed down, and it’s apparently a mess at the moment.
Anyway, as you can imagine, I still have no idea what people’s problem is. Even for idols, I don’t get the “scandal” when they’re found out to be dating, but Day6 aren’t even technically idols are they? Fans can say they’re actually pissed at her for dropping information to sasaengs, but if that was the case, why would his fansites close and not just focus on her wrongdoing? Pathetic.
Anyway, I just wanted to document this as yet another potential instance of fandoms blowing up over basically nothing.
*I always enjoy this excuse to hate on a fellow fan. “They’re an attention seeker.” Motherfucker, others in the fandom start cumming when oppar/unnir likes their picture on Instagram or replies on Twitter and you’re judging another fan for bragging about actually banging the idol or actually dating the idol or actually knowing the idol personally? Really? REALLY? Fuck outta here.
