Knet discusses idol groups that have more group fans than individual members
A topic has been discussed heavily on online forums by netizen, which is about the K-pop idol groups that they think have many multi-stand. These are groups where the majority of fandoms support all members, instead of having many fans who only support individual members (fan only, akgae).
The original author’s choice includes the following 5 groups:
While the remaining 4 groups all received the approval of the majority of Korean netizens, the appearance of BTS created quite a bit of controversy. Many netizens pointed out that the two members Jimin and Jungkook have a lot of akgae, and these people have repeatedly caused “chaos” situations within the fandom.
In addition, besides the 4 names SEVENTEEN, G-Friend, MAMAMOO and A Pink, some netizens also nominated BTOB and WINNER as the groups that they think also have many multi-stand. Both BTOB and WINNER are famous for their talents and close relationships between members, so their fandoms are mostly fans who support the group.
“What makes me feel most amazing is that SEVENTEEN fans, compared to the number of members in the group, there are hardly any disruptive akgae… To be honest, SEVENTEEN’s fandom isn’t small, isn’t it? That’s pretty big, but I’ve never seen akgae cause trouble to protect any of the 13 members.”
“Usually groups where the members’ relationship is really close tend to have more all-fans”
“Yes, that’s why G-Friend’s fans are even more heartbroken when the group disbands”
“The 13 SEVENTEEN members even call other people’s parents to ask them out ㅋㅋㅋ That’s also why sometimes a member doesn’t even know their parents are gone ㅋㅋㅋ eat with other members”
“I don’t think BTS has many all-fans… There are a lot of extreme akgae in the fandom… This is the first time I’ve seen a post claiming that BTS has more all-fans than fans. only that”
“I immediately thought of WINNER and BTOB after reading the title. Most of their fans are all-fans. If you join a member’s fandom, you’ll like them all eventually. the rest of the members because of their chemistry…?I’ve seen a lot of cases like this, and all the fans join the fandom because of the different members ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Usually people like these two groups because of the talent and affection between the members”
“What are you talking about, how many times have Jimin and Jungkook’s akgae messed up?”
“SEVENTEEN exactly… They have a lot of members but I’m always amazed at how close their relationship is”
