One thing I love about Fans forum discussion or if some fans made blog posts discussing about their idol, is that they make you realize you’re not the only one who holds an interest towards certain public figures. For example, I’ve been a great fan of Owl City and currently have a sight on JKT48, but not many people I know in my neighbor town who have similar interest to either of them. In fact, most of my friends don’t even recognise Owl City or think that JKT48 worth enough attention. Naturally I rarely talk about my favorite things so I guess it’s understandable if I couldn’t find anyone who is also fan of Owl City or JKT48. It makes me wonder if I was just being coward to speak out about my interest. 😆
Two of my college classmates are big fans of SuJu and often being together talking about its concerts, reality shows, songs and PVs almost EVERYWHERE and ANYWHERE. At first I thought it’s so annoying to see them spending their time spooning and cooing how SuJu was so awesome, or their shows were so funny or else. It’s just so weird, you know, because at school you’re supposed to talk about subjects and schoolworks instead of a bunch of almost-too-perfect men who won’t even realize that you exist and fancy them. I’ve been in love with all Adam Young songs in both Owl City and Sky Sailing MP, but that doesn’t mean I have to talk about it all day with the others and underestimate the importance of school time. Moreover, I was the first one who talked about SuJu and K-Pop so it was kinda awkward to see them so into SuJu more than I was. I, on the other hand, like Owl City and JKT48 who both are famous, but still feel like I’m so alone because I don’t find anyone who’s interested enough to discuss with. It looks like I feel envy with their enthusiasm. 😐
Now, back to first things I mentioned above. Since I don’t have any friend to discuss, fans forum and blog posts kind of fill my loneliness as a fan who can’t discuss her idol with other people in real world. In internet forums and blogs I can make comment to discuss with other fans and give my personal opinion of my favorite public figures. Though I’m separated by a big amount of distance with them, I always look forward to talking with other fans and create more friendships with new people in similar interests. Actually, having a blog in general is also because of them same reason, that I have way too many things to discuss but no one up for them. Having a discussion with other bloggers is actually more active and valuable than in socmed, somehow. It’s not like there’s no group in socmed that holds a good discussion, but mostly the TL just get flooded by lame and OOT posts. Sorry, in my opinion blog gives better chance for good discussions that is similar in forum.
By the way, I’ve been reading JKT48 general thread in Stage48.net for hours. My eyes got tired… I don’t know if I could read all of pages since the thread has more than 390 pages. At first I tried to read it backward from page 392, but I felt dizzy so I chose to read from the first page. So far I’m still on 40-ish. Ugh.. I hope I can make it, I’m too curious to stop it now. But I feel safer being a silent reader than joing the thread. I’m too self-conscious to be in discussion.
Anyway, anyone also a fan of either Owl City or JKT48? I’m still a casual fan of both but I’d love to talk and share a lot of things with you guys. 🙂
