Vierge Folle

Hi, my name is Omen Drals. I have no age, and I refuse to get one. I change my gender every now and then. I write crappy poems, novels, short stories, draw some awful drawings and - occasionally - compose a few pathetic song. :)

I met the creator of this a month ago and he said he got a lot of hate mail from dudebros who thought that he was a woman complaining about these problems.

My humble opinion on sasaeng fans

Please keep in mind that I’m not a native speaker of English (you’ll see, trust me, hahaha!) therefore I apologize in advance for any Hunglish, grammar, syntax or spelling mistakes. I would also like to apologize for those mistakes that don’t even make sense when it comes to how could they happen - I don’t know, they just do. *hides*

(If you find this stupid rant too long to read let me help you. It’s a long, completely meaningless babbling that comes down to one thing: this is not the reality I wanted. Thank you for your attention, have a nice day!)

Unconditional love behind the glass

Recently the topic of fans disrespecting their favourite idols’ privacy was brought to light yet again (this time it was a wedding they made uncomfortable) although it’s a problem that keeps lurking in the back of most (sane) fans’ mind constantly. You know that it happens to these idols every single day - we have heard of cameras installed in parking lots so they can spy on their “chosen one” whenever he leaves or arrives home, we heard about fans breaking into the apartments of several idols, recording their idols on a funeral, poisoning an idol, hitting and slapping an other one, and of course the taxi chasing is literally an everyday sight. This list could probably go on - one can only guess exactly how creative these stalkers (I personally see them as criminals actually) can get when it comes to breaking havoc. You might have also heard of how hard the agencies try to conceal the stalker fan issue. They don’t want anyone to even suspect any kind of connection between such dark things and their idols who are intended to bring simple, bright emotions. Also, you never ever sue a fan - even if in reality that can hardly be called a “fan”, but still - you don’t bite the hand that feeds you. The fan is not to be sued or seen as responsible, or any of these sacrilegious ideas. But later on this one.

As strange as it might sound to some of you, I can not help but feel intrigued by and attracted to this topic. I find it fascinating and interesting simply because I can smell the depth this issue most probably has that is completely overshadowed by the fans’ simple words of concern you hear and read whenever this topic comes up. I, for one, am completely sure that this is not a simple problem, not even close to black and white, and - lo and behold - it is a problem that you have to do some thinking to get a whole picture of the people responsible on the grand scale for such things to take place to begin with. So, to put it boldly: it’s quite not only these stalkers to blame. They were created by the very same power that gives birth to the whole idol culture (if we can be as grand to label it as such). Also, be warned: idols get their - vast amount of - attention by their fans. I’m more interested in these nameless people, these “private” fans as they are called.

So, let’s forget about idols, “sasaengs”, the whole drama and noisiness, and let’s talk about love instead (didn’t see that one coming after such intro, did you? ^^”). Love - both romantic and non-romantic - is easily the most desired feeling that has ever entered human consciousness, or rather: the feeling of being loved. Now, our world is quite sick, don’t you guys feel that sometimes? We value each other by measures that were never meant to used on human beings.

Appearance is valued as the most precious thing, admit it or not. No one gives a flying about your “beautiful inside” if it does not come with a beautiful face as well ( but not vica- versa). Add to the picture that many of us are not that perfect on the inside either. Also, your money. Your skills. Your belongings. Your talents. Oh, your talents! The holy shallowness we invented. I have seen a whole youtube comment WAR (not even exaggerating here!) on whether beauty is a talent or not. They were fans of HyunA defending her with this - that her appearance is her “talent” when she was accused of having no talent. I have no opinion on this, as I don’t care much for that lady myself.

Natural beauty, talent you born with and often times even wealth is something that you just born with (most of the times children born into a certain social class can not surpass their parents, ever - the children of the poor become poor themselves, the children of the wealthy however…). But you are indeed valued by these, and valued by these exclusively. How harsh - that the you part of you does not concern anyone, often times not even your family members.

In a cold world like this which is filled with people having no talent nor beauty love is something that these people can often times just read about in books and imagine what it might be like. Also in this very same world anything can be made into profit. Anything, just name a price, really. Feeding on lonely people’s desire for love and attention is not even new, only the ways of doing it changes with technology.

The whole idol industry is one way to harvest these desires among other things. It sells you images of men and women (fabricated ones, but still) who are polite, funny, smart and loving - and what they love the most is you, of course. Anything is for the fan, the idol only concerns him and herself with the pleasure of the fan, they take responsibility for that concern (have you heard what the closing fanclubs of L had to say as a goodbye just recently?), and basically everything is about the fan. The fanclub is even given a name to make it feel even more close, even more personal (not simply my “fans” that’s too vague… the Jumping Boas! The EXOtics! The Elfs! Cassiopeia! Wear it as your new name - that connects us!).

For some people - and this will sound very depressing - this is the most attention they have ever received (or will receive for that matter). In this dark, cold world there is this shining place with these wild colours and happy faces and they care about me a lot! Whoever I am! This kind of gives you an idea why many fans are completely lethal when an idol is found out to have a girlfriend or boyfriend - the idol is literally cheating on them! The silent promise was found out to be a lie (of course, duh) that this idol only loves the fan. That’s why they are furious when it happens and many times try to destroy said idols carrier completely. Because that’s how a person who just found out that he/she has been cheated on behaves. As cruel as it sounds, this is a predictable reaction, actually: almost natural.

However, can we safely assume that these people (the fans) really are in a delusional love with these idols simply because of these symptoms? Or is this disease have roots deeper in the ground (about six feet under)? Let us ponder on this for a while and not forget fanbases change, and have people in common. That means, fans often times forget about one idol and move on to an other, or love more at the same time, right? Well, that’s not really love then… Because the fan cheats as well.

My humble theory* is that idols only mediators for these sasaeng fans. The product they sell (let’s not ever forget!) is love, not the idols themselves. Therefore they act only as a tool to get somehow closer to the desired feeling (love in any form possible) and that would provide us with a legitimate reason as to why these fans are so rude or aggressive to their idols sometimes. Because their target is not the idol, not the (fake) persona it represents but the love it offers. And as flies to the bare, exposed light bulb these damaged souls are attracted to this industry and anything it produces because this industry could not try harder to seem more approachable and get closer to its own fanbase.

My personal outlook on this whole phenomenon is that if we could only care about each other (and I’m so tired of this “a little”, no, we should care a LOT more, we act like psychopaths sometimes) you would never have to come across depressing rants like this, but I’m afraid your favourite idols would have to start looking for an other job too.

In this colourful, shiny little world behind the glass these fans looking at their idols through as they hold love as their product that is so close, only a step afar yet completely unattainable because they can’t see the door in.

*And not the ultimate truth that I want to force onto you so that you have to accept and preach it and subject yourself to it - don’t feel pressured because the length of this lame rant.

“People disappear when they die. Their voice, their laughter, the warmth of their breath. Their flesh. Eventually their bones. All living memory of them ceases. This is both dreadful and natural. Yet for some there is an exception to this annihilation. For in the books they write they continue to exist. We can rediscover them. Their humor, their tone of voice, their moods. Through the written word they can anger you or make you happy. They can comfort you. They can perplex you. They can alter you. All this, even though they are dead. Like flies in amber, like corpses frozen in ice, that which according to the laws of nature should pass away is, by the miracle of ink on paper, preserved. It is a kind of magic.”
