Be honest.

For me, yes. I ended up strongly disliking a certain group and maybe some others because of some bad apples from their fandoms.

I’ll admit that it was stupid to hate or dislike a group simply because of how their fandoms act. I’m sure these idols don’t like it when their fandom acts the way they do, but they probably can’t speak up about it because they might be at risk of losing fans. And some fandoms don’t like to listen either.

Moral of the story is, don’t hate the group. Hate the fandom for acting toxic. Unless if the group is problematic asf :taesip:

No, I haven't. I am sure a lot of people would consider some of my fandoms to be problematic but I try not to be at all myself

I can´t say that I dislike the group of that, I just dislike the fandom and hence I´m not calling myself "a stan" because I don´t want to be associated with that fandom. But it´s not the group´s fault their fans are crazy :D.

you know I have :nekoshy:
I kind of feel bad, but to me, fandoms are kind of reflections of their groups. If a fandom is acting terribly all the time, the group starts adopting the same traits in my mind.
I totally agree that this isn't really a reasonable way to go about disliking a group though.

I did when I got back into K-Pop around 2017.

It's not exactly that I hated the group, but I didn't want to listen to them at all because I didn't want to interact with the fans. Which is dumb as hell to me now, especially with how I mostly lurk and don't heavily interact with fans anyway, but at the time I was getting back into K-Pop and actually wanted to connect with other fans, so the fans of this particular group made me avoid the group itself.

Now, I listen to the group in general, though I don't stan them.

Honestly, yeah. I don't really feel bad about it because it's not like I'm writing hate comments about them or their members. I just don't click any articles or stuff about them. I keep my thoughts to myself :)

a lot of people look down on this behavior but i think humans actually do this subconsciously due to our guilt by association fallacy.

Not at all, seeing as i've been part of one of the most hated fandoms in all of kpop since 2014 and knowing the frustration i've constantly felt from people hating my favourite groups because of the more vocal members of the fandom it would be stupid for me to go do it myself

Yes, especially when they try to convince me that the music is worth listening to AFTER I listened to it and found it wanting.
