Why do people care so much about "4th gen queens", album sales or "bop vs flop"? Why would they be worrying about who's a better visual or the 3rd gen it girl? WHY DO PEOPLE CARE SO MUCH?
Now, this is like the best Reddit comment I found that answered my question, if you think it's yours, lol sorry. This is a very harsh comment, and I don't want to offend you. (for some people that comment literally describes them, can't remember usernames anyways)
These people are actually f'n losers who can't accomplish an ounce of achievement in their lives. So they want to live their dream life through their idols just to feed their ego. If their idol is somewhat underperforming, it hurts their delusional pride. Such people are actually more common than you'd think. It's just most of them won't confess. This is also the reason why many Kpop stans are obsessed with achievements and sales and records.
for some people that comment literally describes them, can't remember usernames anyways lmfaoo, it's probably not you though, if it describes you, i mean-
If you unstan groups just because they aren't popular enough, or are too popular, or because they hit too many or haven't hit enough achievements for you, you have never been a real fan in the first place, or stopped being one.
My piece of advice: if you focus on achievements instead of the members or the music, you'll be less satisfied and you'll probably be disappointed more. And by focusing on music, I mean actually enjoying and/or respecting the music, not complaining about every little thing and criticising every song. Don't pretend to be a fan or ex-fan of other groups if you're just going to trash-talk them.
