Every new year, it has been a tradition for many people to list down the things they want to change or achieve for the next twelve months. Whether this will be successful or just another procrastination disaster, it’s still a fun thing to try. After all, who doesn’t want to improve oneself for the better? Unlike others, fans have a different set of promises they want to fulfill as far as their fan life is concerned. Let’s dive into the most commonly listed New Year’s Resolutions in the K-pop wonderland.
Buy Less, Save More
Once you enter the K-pop paradise, you will often find yourself confronted by alluring temptations in the form of albums, photo books, merchandise, and concert tickets. The road to adulthood is not easy to take, and it’s more difficult when your hobby gets tangled with life obligations that also need your attention. When this happens, it usually dings the alarm to start managing your money right.
It sounds easier said than done, which is no wonder why it remains a struggle for many fans. There’s nothing wrong with spending your money on the things you love. However, when it starts to affect other important things, maybe you need to take a step back and control your spending limit. Don’t worry, your bias won’t mind.
Get More Sleep
The lack of sleep is a usual dilemma inside a fandom, especially during an upcoming comeback. Who wants to miss the music video release? The album? No one! Non-fans of the infectious music genre may find it strange, but streaming is taken seriously by a lot of K-pop enthusiasts. It’s like an unwritten law that’s always present in the rule book. Frequent sleep deprivation is critical to one’s well-being. Always keep in mind that your health is more important than a couple of views you’ll contribute on YouTube.
Travel, Enjoy, and Seek Exciting Adventures!
In the K-pop realm, some fans like to spend their time following the life of their idols online. While it’s not always a bad thing, there are moments when fans become caged inside their own K-pop world. Take a break from the vibrant music videos and engaging fancams in front of you. Create a time for yourself to have fun, and make new memories far from your computer once in a while before you start forgetting how a butterfly looks.
Stay Away from Fanwars
Fanwar is no longer new in the K-pop fandom culture. Most of the fans are protective towards the idols they love, and will not allow any baseless accusation or people casting aspersions to pass through. It’s a disheartening reality that some people will choose to fabricate vicious rumors for their entertainment. However, you can’t always put up your shield and go for the kill. There will be circumstances where you need to back down because it might negatively affect yourself too. Let the report button serve its purpose and enjoy the music.
