It has always bothered me when I find that kpop idols, especially male idols, create a list of characteristics when they are asked what they’re ideal types are. I’m a fervent kpop fan, but I lose a little faith in humanity when hear about they’re ideal types. Pale skin, round eyes, double eyelids, specific height, specific weight, specific face shape, nice body???
I’m sure they are old enough to know that personality will always outweigh appearance in the end, but I think that some idols fail to realize that they have fans of all shapes, sizes, race, and ethnicity. I understand that everyone has a certain preference for their significant other. I think that idols, in general, should be a little more cautious and mindful when they state their ideal type. I know all idols love their fans, but when fans hear about they’re ideal types, it brings down self confidence and fans strive for just that…because apparently, your bias will fall in love with you if you fall into every one of their ideal traits. I’ve come across a few posts on the web about the crazy things fans willingly do for their bias. I guess I just wanted to bring out the point that there is more to life than fitting your bias’ ideal type and I feel that kpop sets unrealistic, unhealthy standard to the public.
