We all have one thing in common: K-Pop. Unfortunately, this does not stop us from disagreeing on quite a bit, especially pertaining to K-Pop.
During a Twitter Spaces chat room, things got spicy as K-Pop stans began to voice their unpopular opinions. It began a trend of sharing #KpopUnpopularOpinions online. Many users actually had a point so here are 13 you may or may not agree with.
1. Solo stans are the worst.
Lowkey popular unpopular opinion.

2. Shipping idols is really weird.
They’re real people, not fictional characters.

3. K-Pop music videos > everything else.
Opinion or fact?

4. Girl groups are held to a higher standard than boy groups.
It’s the sexism for me.

5. K-Pop is a genre of music.
Also, once again, idols are people.

6. Give 4th Gen idols a break.
Everyone’s struggling right now.
y’all go too hard on 4th gen idols especially 2020 rookies. they debuted during a pandemic and MOST companies are struggling to keep their groups afloat. anyways here is cravity pic.twitter.com/dyzmigd6At #kpopunpopularopinions

7. Everyone needs therapy.
This includes idols and trainees.
#KpopUnpopularOpinions companies should require all idols and trainees to go to therapy regularly since the industry is so toxic its the least they could do.

8. Fan wars are dumb and pointless.
At the end of the day, the idols are all friends so why can’t we all be friends as well?

It’s hard being a multi-Stan since fandoms are always fighting with each other. The truth is that behind the scenes idols from different groups get along and hangout with each other. They’re friends and do normal ever day stuff like us.🤷♀️ #kpopunpopularopinions pic.twitter.com/b1lNj0LB0m

9. There’s no room for racism, xenophobia, or colorism here.
Can we put a stop to cultural appropriation too?
Stop stealing black music, style, aave, dances and then being racist in the same breath!
Stop mocking black people.
Stop forgetting to credit black influences.
Stop shaming dark, tan, and brown skin.
Stop giving foreign idols such a hard time

10. We’re not born delulu.
Fan service might be to blame.
I believe that kpop idols are much more interactive with their fans than western artists, especially with fan service which gives a lot of fans a certain illusion #kpopunpopularopinions

11. Lipsyncing is not always a bad thing.
Sometimes, it’s even necessary.
some of u need to accept a lot of groups lipsync at times. it isnt a bad thing. they are performing extremely hard dances while trying to sing and entertain. stop attacking ppl for claiming they use it on things like award shows. #KpopUnpopularOpinions pic.twitter.com/bvG9zaa3v7

12. Bias ≠ bestie
some of y’all need to stop acting like you know your idols personally #kpopunpopularopinions
— ary ᥫᩣ (@mewsarms) March 29, 2021
13. K-Pop shouldn’t always come first.
Remember to prioritize.
it’s sad that i have to remind y’all of this again but ur teeny tiny brains need this so here i go again, kpop ain’t that serious so stop putting kpop first in everything #KpopUnpopularOpinions pic.twitter.com/x13kjLKgQz
