Lusting, and reading fanfics, obsessing over their mvs and their looks, to the point where they take God’s place in my heart, and I start to push Him away. is it bad to listen to them? Since my friend keeps up with all the kpop news I feel like I should be trying too and in the process I forget to pray. I honestly wish this was God’s answer to me, but it’s not. They’re really addictive right? But I refrain myself from being called an army because I can be army for Jesus only. I thought it would be better if I would cut myself totally from it but that didn’t help I try finding old videos of them because the new videos are way too much they are a little bit sexual and I don’t like that at all. Again thank you for sharing bc this is my struggle right now. Second, humans cannot be equivalent to God. I am yet to be set completely free and I still struggle day and night. https://ymi.today/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Can-I-Be-A-Christian-K-Pop-Fan.jpg, https://ymi.today/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/ymi-logo-black-3.png. He can use this as an area in your life to bless others instead. thats my kakao ID , Hello Myra! I hope someone can help me because I feel guilty about it. Hi Lyricalia, I see that these comment was from 2017. And to be honest I don’t love myself. So to make it short, I think we should give it all to God. But the bad things is I realized that during this time when my parents didn’t allow me to listen to BTS, I was fading away from God. In the bible it is said that meditate on the word day and night. I can’t stop thinking about anything and everything kpop. Good luck and God bless you all. when I gave it to God I realized that I prayed more and more to Him since He’s the only One able to give my dream to me. They may be grateful but at the end of the day, I shouldn’t invest so much time into people I know would not be as invested in me. They had all eyes on them and were very talented. My friends say I am in denial of obsessing over Kpop right now well maybe I am because they have proven it by my actions. That was one of the main reasons why I stopped praying and sinned everyday. As 1 Corinthians 15:33 says “Bad company corrupts good character.”, Hi I found this article when I was reading my Bible devotionals this morning. My heart goes out to her family, fans and loved ones. I don’t know how but I’ll trust you.” And when I gave my life to the Lord, Jesus Christ, I left it all behind. My heart was deceitful. I don’t know how to go to Heaven. Humble yourself, and accept him. Gradually, I slipped down the rabbit hole of Kpop and particularly began to look into BTS, as they were the group who I’d heard of most. I think this can be applicable to any addiction to any band/ artist. REPEAT THE TRUTH THAT YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST. I did as always, Ctrl A, Ctrl C, Ctrl V, the whole darn discography on Spotify into my playlist… -‭‭Acts‬ ‭17:28‬‬. They didn’t have the best vocal tecnique and they didn’t write all of their own songs like people said they did and certainly didn’t choreograph it themselves. Im also a bigbang fan, like a die hard YG stan during my uni days. Even writing this all down, I feel ashamed because I stopped going to church as I would complain about not sleeping enough the night before or just wanting to curl in bed and watch Kpop videos. That’s what also made me re-realise: BTS are human, just like you and me believe it or not. It’s like we are trying to compromise and we cannot fool God. I keep thinking of the person I could have been today HAD i stayed loyal to God. doesn’t apply to everyone); He’s been quite loud and clear about this subject with me: He does not want me anywhere near kpop. Also.. If there were no fans, there would be no K-pop, this is also the same for most things in the world. I also thought k-pop was far safer than Western music and that they did not display sexual messages but just presented sweet romance songs and any dark concepts just represented their emotions. I found a lot of groups that I liked such as EXO and Red Velvet and put their songs on my playlist, but I was still not obsessed. I need to truly ask what is the root cause of why I am so obsessed and be honest with myself. I also like how humble they are and how appreciative they are of their fans despite their global fame. My heart is wanting pretty things and I feel empty because I know I can’t have or be near the pretty things I see. Probably not. Thank you all for your stories and God bless you all. We should come to GOD as we are and let him do the changing. we could do this, i would be up for it. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. I am so afraid that they will band me from listening to EXO. I felt lost and alone. This really confused me as I thought as Christians they would be understanding towards me. It’s as if I can’t let go if it when I’m very aware that it’s not pleasing God but at the same time I feel hurt. ( I was trying to beat my missionary brother who had like 1,500 songs on his playlist and now I have about 10,000- whoops!). This article helped a lot in refocusing my mind on what’s truly important, but I loved how you said that we can still enjoy this type of stuff in moderation. Here’s my prayer for you: “Father, we thank you that even before our backsliding will recur, you still love us and see beyond our sins. Ashamed till the point where i never admitted (even till this day) to my church friends, not even at the altar call, that i was trapped into the kpop world and that i was so wrong, and that i could shamelessly proclaim my love for these idols infront of my church friends because of how close we are. I feel the need to share my own story, just in case it helps someone out. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts I was already convicted to stop. That is the enemy tryna come from another avenue but it’s on lock off fr. I feel really jealous when I see my friends have albums and have chances to go to their concerts. I got a second piercing in both my ears recently. EXO are my UB group(3 years and counting ) I want you to know that you are not alone, the Lord is with you and will always be there, I know that you feel that you are doing something wrong and you blame yourself and you don’t know which way to go. I beat myself up every day knowing that I could be improving my relationship with God if I just spent as much time praying to him and reading the Bible as I did watching BTS music videos or browsing the internet for K-Pop merch to buy. I do want God to say “well done” at the end of my life. It is not right to elevate any person or object to the status of God, unwittingly or not. I find my social circle had not increased because I lost valuable time that could had been spent with God and focusing on HIS view of me. Basically a fanfiction in my daydream. I just want to say to many of you out there who is in this battle, just like me, know that we can’t solely fight on our own strength and have to rely on the Lord in this journey. That’s one way I try to include God in the things that I watch and it makes it a lot easier to be discerning and honest with myself about what I’m watching instead of mindlessly idolizing. Just like that, I became a K-Pop fan. I asked God to forgive me at least 10 times because I just kept obsessing over them. I really like K-pop but once my Christian parents found out they banned me from listening or watching it. I seem to break them every time. In university, I even spent almost 7000 NT (which is equivalent to approximately 216 USD) to watch their performance. There was a separate thread for the same thing, but deticated solely to BTS. I would read a lot of BTS fan fiction. I’m so glad I found this thread because I’ve been struggling recently with it too :(. I’m sure some of us invested a lot of emotions into K-pop idols that we end up getting hurt because we already know deep down God will not give them to us as our boyfriends/spouses because He has someone better for us and what’s nice about this, He prepares us a man who will lead us to God no matter what the season. I almost feel sorry for them because they have the longest standing history of KPOP to continue to surpass their own achievements. Here are a few struggles that all international k-pop fans know a little too well and how to combat them. The thing is, I’m not exactly a relational person, much less one who would approach a stranger to share the gospel with him or her. I had promised myself that I would stop reading wattpad but when I became army in October last year, I started back reading a lot of jk fanfics which definetly aren’t PG…..Since mummy just talked to me about how salvation is more important than ever right now, I’m just thinking on what I should do. I really want to see Jimin, but in my early Christian days, when I am still so in love with the Lord, I don’t save. I would like it to be appreciated, My story: . During peak Beatlemania, circa 1964, screaming, sobbing fans were the worst of it. But, I realised that realistically, for me, BTS couldn’t really help me love myself. Thaks for reminding me that kpop is just human too because if I didnt read this immediately I would be very very possessed to kpop and almost praise them as much as I praise God. I also am at the edge of my seat while waiting two minutes before their next mv is released. (I’m actually looking for other people too who have the same burden.) How could I come back from an amazing trip of doing God’s work in a 3rd world country and then resume my life back to normal? Not try to overcome it on our own strength, trying and trying but always failing. Living in this sin, in our case, obsessing and lusting over kpop, is not keeping God’s words. May God use them to speak His gospel because after this life nothing else will matter, only God does. The Holy Spirit convicts me of my sin every single time. Pray for me. Sure, many may have fought their obsession that way, but it sounds wrong in my opinion. When you realize that God isn’t mad at you. Here’s where it all went downhill… Also, we must NEVER show support for some of the very ungodly things they support. Unfortunately, just like regular dating, everything is trial and error. But then I stumbeled upon this video which was talking about illuminati symbolism … and the part about the eye and I thought to myself , I’ve seen Bts show that kinda symbolism more than once in so many of their dances and mvs …and then I kept thinking about how addicted I got and how I just wouldn’t want to let go.

I always thought I was in a decent place with Christ, and knew where to find Him if I ever went astray. I also am taking care of my health and mind more! No one should ever be higher than God. What kind of role model should that be to me?

I love BTS ..they’re new album BE comes out next month in November …I draw the members a lot especially Jungkook. As for being a fan of a group and having biases, I would like to pray about that with The Lord. That is the first step. Even if it isn’t bringing my grades down or anything. It’s like I’m looking in the mirror. ♥, Do you have kakao? Korean culture is far more accepting of this and in no way sees it as “gay.” Respectfully, I think your parents misunderstand the cultural differences at play here. I bought into everything about K-Pop: the dashing good looks of the stars, their trendy dress sense, amazing vocals, and smooth dance moves. We praise God for the gift of faith and we praise Him for giving Jesus who died for our sins so that we may have fellowship once again with the Father who longs to give us a full and meaningful life. of money on their albums, merchandise, and concerts, I could go on and on with my friends on how good-looking they were. It had gotten to the point where I believed nothing could get me out of my addiction. (I feel the need to draw a Venn diagram to represent the numbers.) The thing is im Not too obsessed in the past I dont memorized all sj members and i dont watched their variety shows, just their MV and some of their famous songs. I spent so much time watching their videos, listening to their songs, tweeting about them, I could even go a day without taking a bath and just watching them. Please help me pray for them (all our favourite Kpop celebs and bands) all to get to know God- May The Lord do miracles and bless them, and help them turn to Him instead. can you add me too pls? But now though im still a fan, I manage to put that aside. Let’s heed the call from James 4:8, “, Come near to God and He will come near to you.”. This may seem radical and may not be the extent to which you have to go in terms of your relation with Kpop. #blessed. I’ve been stop addicting for about 3 years, but then recently Jonghyun passed away. (If you dont wanna read my testimony its ok, some advice down at the second paragraph) I’ve been in the same boat as you for so long but now I have found true joy on the Lord and not in human idols. The trouble is that it stresses me out. By my penultimate and final year in college, as I was part of a student Christian ministry I really calmed down on reading the fanfics and just read interviews and updates on the group. K-Pop fans put their own unique spin on being the number one fan of a group. There is no cry of help and desperation that falls deaf on His ears. Do you have a KPop idol crush (be honest!)? Your email address will not be published. every kpop fan should do that!! Thank you so much for your kind words! So far it has been going well. I’m here again because, after fasting from BTS for a while, I caved in once again. I believe they are a one of a kind k-pop group ever since their Forever Young album, they have created more meaningful music. I will definitely follow the steps you took. I still had my heart set on going to their Japan concert but they didn’t start selling tickets yet (so I was saved from that). Gradually, my zeal started to subside and before I knew it, K-Pop took over my life again. I don’t know how many people willread this since this post was made quite a while ago, but I need to share this. I gave up BTS and Kpop for Lent and sometimes, temptation got the best of me. Aside from asking for God’s help to curb our obsession, we can take other practical steps to guard our hearts. 1 John 2;15-17 is quite well known but it always reminds me, it says 15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. We should seek who GOD really is.. because when we see God as He is, the Good God He is, the LOVE he lavishes on us regardless of our sins, we become more and more satisfied in Him. Can I still do the things I do or do I have to completely stop all my hobbies and interests? Will share this . However, they very well can become the other definition of an idol to fanatics. My name is Ruby. I am really stuck and like it became my habit but I know that my obsession with them (not that much obssesed) will be gone( I am working on it). I can’t help myself but to constantly check on Wanna One in social media (Instagram, Twitter) and like every post. And over the years I’ve listened to a few songs but I never actually paid any attention to it . Boi was I so convicted, cause every now and then I would slip into clicking on links that pertained to that EXO member that were sexually lewd. But things really started to turn for worst when I started to engage more with the fandom: Exo-l’s though social media. I only know kpop songs that have a few million views SINCE IDK WHAT IT IS NONE OF IT IS POPULAR IM GUESSING O.O I dont even listen to kpop anyway 7. I listen to KPOP because I admire Jhope’s talent to dance so well, or Suga’s talent to rap so fast yall know? Thank you Jesus. It has nothing to do with God, who is always there with you. Now, although I still pray to God about wanting to see JIMIN in person, I had a change of heart in a sense that I realized that it is more satisfying to see GOD rather than him fulfilling this dream of mine. I seriously can’t thank you enough. I know what you mean. I asked myself should I forget about Kim Namjoon and BTS? 2. The Lord waits for us to come back to him and he is more than ready to forgive.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I felt like it wasn’t me anymore, though I was still involved in church ministry, but my heart is out of it. So if you think Not listening or reacting to their content will make you more Christian, I wouldn’t say yes. Then one day I cried and prayed hard for freedom from this sin of idolatry. They said that they’d pray to God about it. With all this speed and enthusiasm, these fans look like a united front—but that isn’t exactly true. I don’t see anything wrong with it. They're just 5 … There is hope. I don’t think I’ll go cold turkey and never listen to kpop ever again, and God has brought me a long way since I wanted to dye my hair black just because of their Euphoria era or spend my last bank money on their album or used their Twitter account as motivation to read the Bible each day. I still want to support them in a sense. we should pray and cry for help because we don’t have the power to change ourselves and save ourselves. I was over it by God’s grace but then COVID happened and isolation was getting difficult as the months passed. I found myself dedicating most of my time to KPOP.

I really like BTS for their well-written/produced music that raises awareness about mental health, depression, etc. My Bts and K-pop obesssion hasn’t lasted for a super long time but I’m grateful I’m getting over it. Let’s be realistic. But i honestly can’t live a day without watching at least one BTS video (fan made or official) because they simply bring me happiness. I heard they released a new song. I’m not a obsessed fan but I do have admiration for these men. Thank you for everybody here for sharing their stories! Please can someone clear this up for as I am very confused because in my eyes they don’t look like girls. That’s even better because you used your own money, not your parents’. Of course, BTS are good people. The last part is supposed to be I was also a fan of kpop… I used to collect their albums and photobooks, watched VIP concert and basically spend almost all of my time into kpop. >:P This affected how I interacted with people, or how I was treated by certain people and I allowed it. I realize I am leading other ASTRAY). Their beliefs aren’t like us, like you, and we should except that diversity. I even have a feeling that will happen. I need help i am confused as I am a kpop fan and i need help. However, back then I was sceptical of Kpop and wasn’t curious enough to listen. Thank you for relating! I think it’s wonderful that you’re to make sure you wouldn’t fall from your faith in Christ.<3 I know deep in my heart, the more I spend time watching on their variety shows, downloading videos, photos and what not, I am placing them in my heart before God.. Sometimes I even prioritize practicing their choreography and songs instead of doing other responsibilities. It is our culture that gives us narrow and frankly toxic views of masculinity. I thank the Lord for leading me here. Now I’m at a point where I wish to be skinny like the idols (I used to think Yoona was way too skinny and now I think she is the embodiment of perfection). I spent so much time watching their videos, listening to their songs, tweeting about them, I could even go a day without taking a bath and just watching them. But now i realize that they are just as we..since God created everyone of us in his own image..i am definitly going to pray for all k pop idols to know about God. You know what I mean….4) if I can save money can I buy merch and albums still? I am glad, not just to you, but everyone else in the comments thread that I am not alone. Blessings, Vaya con Dios! So to answer Bolu’s question: It is not really wrong to listen to BTS if they are not IDOLS in your life. Since i was a born-christian, i knew the moment it was wrong to idolise people of the earth. Some practical tips: Find your Bible and sit down with paper and pencil. BUT I ALSO WANT YOU TO KNOW BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE, YOU ARE FORGIVEN AND RIGHTEOUS IN GOD’S EYES BECAUSE OF JESUS CHRIST. I also spent less time with God. So, I deleted all the fanfics in my library and haven’t read any since. I was in despair. What’s important is to keep it at a healthy dose and not let it take control over your soul and heart. I’ve been an ARMY for about a year now, and have gone through a similar phase with anime in the past. I got hooked. My missionary brother casually liked Big Bang (before it was cool, he’s cooler than any hipsters) because a Japanese friend introduced it to him. Withholding forgiveness of yourself, is just as evil as not forgiving other people. I was obsessed with TXT and my bias was HueningKai.

Who is Minhyuk? Thank you so much! I FEEL EXACTLY the same. I used to download so many photos of my biases and wreckers and I would stare at them for minutes; I constantly updated myself about them in every social media; used to binge-watch on Youtube or V-live and live like trash.

Not all songs are bad and we can listen to them but we should pray and ask God to give us self control , nothing can ever replace God.. and we should make a conscious effort to keep ourselves away from the things of the world …, God’s never gonna leave our side no matter how far we drift apart all we need to do is come back to God and he’ll be waiting for us with open arms …. Here are 7 Things That make K-Pop Fans Unique! In light of this, let’s pray for the stars we like, that they would come to know God, reflect His beauty and goodness in and through their lives so that others would see and come to know God personally.

I have this same problem and what I learned is that you need to invest your time and efforts into people and other relationships that will challenge you in your faith and support you in your struggles, temptations, and keep you accountable in your walk with Christ. But they are humans with short tempers, insecurities, territorial or some sort of characteristic flaw that we won’t know about or we don’t see since they shower their fans with winks, hearts and cheeky, flirty smiles. Even if it’s just for a day, put away your devices and stay off k-pop related content. I cannot go on a day without His word or presence. Please pray for me if you can.
