[Writer’s Choice] I’m a 2ND Generation K-pop fan

I’m a second generation K-pop fan that started off with SS501 and then transitioned to Super Junior and so forth. How does it feel being a 2nd generation fan? It feels pretty lonely and sad because I know my favorite groups will never be the same. Many members have departed from my favorite groups that it’ll be a while till I see them on stage all together if that were to ever happen. It feels a bit frustrating because popular groups are thriving while some groups that have been around are getting left behind. I don’t want to take away from the groups that have worked hard to be where they are but I’d be nice to have their fandoms acknowledge that other groups could have done the same and greatly paved the way for 3rd generation groups. xzc
