more opinions on sasaengs

This is taken from a Tumblr account I will be adding more tumblr posts to this

2 cents: Sasaeng Fans

honest to God.

Sasaeng fans = Stalkers.

Like I mentioned in my past post about the JYJ issue, Sasaeng fans are the equivalent of stalkers, exploiting other’s privacy and damaging them psychologically and mentally. Sasaeng fans (no matter what the age) should be brought to justice.

I’ll be blunt. Korea is a country where “fitting in” is such a big issue that leads to suicide even with those in the early stages of life. “fitting in” includes physical ideas such as double eyelid surgery, nose surgery, any type of surgery. To fit the “norm” of beauty, one must be stick thin, tall, and have a beautiful face. Why Korea? Why? Why are you promoting such an extremist view onto your children? This pressure leads to such complications such as stated in allkpop’s article, where people want to fit in with others at school so they do this and that. This is seriously too much. Children should be enjoying their childhood. Teenagers should be enjoying their teen years doing productive activities that will help them in the future. They should be concentrating on their privileged education! Not chasing around idols. True, because of these people, idols do make money, HOWEVER, because you support someone, does not mean that you OWN them!

Gahh, I’m so fed up with sasaeng fans and all this news. =.=;; ….. go do something REAL with your life. all that money you waste on chasing down an idol can feed a whole third world country. There are more important matters out in the world. Bigger issues that deserve all that attention you give to your idol oppas.

grow the fuck up kids.

Idol manager of 10 years discloses his memories of sasaeng fans

The issue of sasaeng fans have been put back on the chopping block after the recent controversy surrounding JYJ. One manager who’s been working for famous idols for the past 10 years recently met up with reporters to disclose his own first hand experience dealing with sasaeng fans as a career.

He revealed, “I really don’t even want to imagine it. When I wake up and open the door, there’s urine and feces on the floor, as if they’re marking their territory… Mornings should be bright and fresh, so think about having to start your morning with urine and feces. You start your day with stress.”

“Sasaeng fans that follow us around in taxis can be considered the mild ones since some have even barged into the dorm and stolen all of the food. Even if we change our numbers, they somehow find it out… they’re on the level of 007.”

When asked if he’s ever hit a sasaeng fan, he replied, “Honestly, I used to in the past. After the schedules are finished, hundreds of fans swarm in. One member even used to get pulled around by the hair. I had to block the members off before a bigger accident occurred. I had no choice but to use violence. Now, there are a lot of bystanders and fans that use cameras so you can’t do that anymore. I used to spray bug spray and even harsh swears, but it’s all of no use.”

How do the fans that were assaulted feel? He explained, “Fans actually feel proud about it, as I’ve seen some say, ‘I was even hit by our oppa’s manager.’ I know it’s not all of them that think like this but they do exist. Sasaeng fans think that violence and verbal assault is a way of getting closer to their favorite idol. Thus, it’s no use using such methods on them.”

He continued, “There are a lot of young sasaeng girls. When the idols come out after finishing their schedules, they’ll swarm in close and begin touching their private parts. They’re so young and yet they’re already sexually assaulting people. From the perspective of the idol member, it’s horrifying.”

“Once, I lectured the sasaeng fans that came to the dorm. Because they wouldn’t listen to a thing I said, I told them to bring their parents. They must’ve felt mad that I swore at them because they brought their parents back and framed me for being some drunk that assaulted an innocent student. Of course, in the eyes of the parents, they take the side of their daughters. I was reported to the police and put in a predicament where the victim actually became the attacker.”

On the controversy currently surrounding JYJ and sasaeng fans, he said, “There’s no excuse for the use of violence, but as someone that’s been in the same situation, I can understand what he must have been thinking. Dealing with urine and feces in the morning, receiving hateful texts, stalker calls… Idols also have to suffer at the salon and events. Once this accumulates, there’s only so much a human being can take before it all explodes.”

Concluding the interview, he stated, “Sasaeng fans transform with time. They are now a gang-like presence that transfers information from one to another. There are some that even trade money for information. Managers cannot be like the way they were in the past where they use violence. Celebrities are celebrities, but the managers are also dying here.”

There are many thoughts I have in regards to all that was said and I could go on for hours probably. It is just showing how much lack of protection and security they have and need but it also shows how much government and authorities need to change things can you imagine walking down your hallway and seeing that stuff just there in the hall or outside your building there are others who live in that building not just sasaengbums beloved"oppas"

Managers are definitely under alot of pressure and as a result to their over working and lack of proper rest and constant worrying some have gotten in to car accidents with the talents they manage.

Park Yoo Chun’s Younger Brother: “It Was Difficult Watching My Brother Having a Hard Time Because of Sasaeng Fans”

JYJ Park Yoo Chun‘s younger brother, Park Yoo Hwan opened up about the recent JYJ sasaeng fan controversy. On March 13, Park Yoo Hwan participated in the press conference of Channel A’s upcoming drama “The Strongest K-Pop Survival” and talked about his experience of watching Park Yoo Chun struggle with Sasaeng fan problems.

Park Yoo Hwan stated, “I’ve seen my brother struggling with that kind of issue since I was young, so I am well aware of how difficult it is to deal with it. It breaks my heart to watch my big brother always feeling down. Sasaeng fans took away his liveliness and smile. All I can do for him is just to laugh with him, fool around, and be as lively as possible. I’m trying my best to help him out.”

Brotherly is all he can give his brother the families of entertainers suffer as much as their relatives are . They must watch their beloved brothers, sister mothers , daughter, son's, fathers and cousins so on so forth suffer and change from lively loving people to broken hurt unable to smile shells of the people they once were.
