Who is your f(x) ‘bias’?

Vote f(x) for Summer Song on Fuse TV

This is a question that floats around the f(x) fan base. In my five-month time as an f(x) fan, I’ve become used to this question.

The true definition of bias isn’t so pleasant. It means ‘to be prejudiced’. To be prejudiced means to have a preconceived opinion that is not based on reasoning or experience.

But in the f(x) fandom world, bias simply means your favorite f(x) member, the member that you just can’t stop loving no matter what.

So, I’m going to ask all of you, “Who is your bias?”

fx_03_h

There are five lovely girls in f(x). Fans have sided with their favorites since their debut. I’m going to go into detail about the five girls, and I’m also going to share with you what  I observed about their fans. I’ve noticed that there are some distinct characteristics that each girls’ fans carry. I’m going to review…

I’m going to start with the oldest member: Victoria.

Victoria

v_02

Victoria is the flexible leader of the f(x) group. She can do back-bends, flips, leg stretches, and whatever “bends” you can think of. She’s a great dancer. She studied at the Beijing Dance Academy. Oh, yes, did I mention she is Chinese? Yes, she is the only Chinese member in the K-pop f(x) group. Victoria is youthful, dorky, and full of energy. She is the “big sister” to the other members.

Here are other articles that focus on her charms:

Just how Talented is f(x) Victoria?

Now to focus on her fan base. These are some definitive characteristics of her fan base that I noticed:

True or False?

*Most of her fan base comes from overseas, particularly China.

* People who love her have an affinity for dance and acrobatics.

*There are some people who think Victoria’s body is perfect, and so they support her.

*People who love her may have been impressed with her limbs in earlier performances.

*Fans may have been introduced to her through dramas.

*Fans of 2PM are fans of Victoria. (Khuntoria :P )

*Fans were drawn in by her cute, babyish antics. (Pororo The Little Penguin :P )

*Perhaps many of her fans are older in some way (maybe the oldest sibling in their homes, at their school, on their job, etc..).

*This fan base is lively and perky, and they never usually have anything mean to say about other fanbases.

*This fan base wants Victoria to have more lines in f(x)’s songs. They complain a lot.

*Her fans are foreigners in their own countries.

Amber

e_03

Amber is the charming tomboy in the f(x) group. She is most distinct for her androgynous fashion and boyish demeanor. Amber also has a wide network of Korean celebrity friends, and is multi-talented: she sings, plays guitar, plays drums, writes music, and dances. She communicates more with her fans via social media than the other members do. She is from Los Angeles, California, USA. She’s of Taiwanese descent. She speaks three different languages: English, Chinese, and Korean. She has an older sister.

Here are other articles that focus on her charms:

f(x)’s charm and Venus

Just how talented is f(x) Amber?

Characteristics of her fan base:

True or False?

*Amber has the most fans from English-speaking countries.

*Most fans who meet her, fall in love with her.

*It takes males a long time to warm up to her, but when they see her personality, they love her most.

*She has a huge group of fans who are gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, tomboyish girls, girlish boys, transgender, or otherwise having gender and/or sexual affiliations that aren’t traditional.

*Most of her fans are underdogs in their own communities.

*Her fans tend to like edgy music, particularly rock music.

*Her fanbase tends to single Amber out from the group.

*Amber has the hugest female fanbase.

*Her fans are hip to popular American social media (instagram and twitter :P ). They are most up-to-date with everything f(x), thanks to Amber.

*This fan base is dorky, a little urban, and give funny nicknames (Llama :P )

*Fans are sometimes a little critical. They argue with people a lot. Maybe a bit hot-tempered? Or just defensive?…They will defend Amber and make you feel like scum if you even sound like you’re talking bad about her.

*She has the strongest fan group. (2010, hiatus, conniption :P )

*Fans of boy groups and 2ne1 also like Amber.

*The largest shipping happens in this fan group, from Kryber, to Sulber, to Keyber, to Henber, to Jackber…

*Most of her female fans would hope she is bi-sexual. She has been noted to make even heterosexual female fans feel like lesbians…

*It is very easy to become her fan because she knows so many other idols that give her special attention. Being a fan of hers, you get to know other K-pop idols.

*Most of her fans focus more on her unique looks and her funny personality than they do anything else. They’re always watching her instagram videos…

Luna

l_09

Luna is the “fire-power” of the group, the “vitamin” of the group. She is the best vocalist, and a powerful one at that. She is also a great dancer. She is truly talented. She is the most personally interested in her members and her fans. Luna is known as the “sweetheart”, the kind and compassionate one. She is sensitive, and cries easily. She works the hardest of all the f(x) members. She also loves to talk, and does most of the talking. She was born in Seoul, Korea. She has a twin sister.

Here are other articles that focus on her charms:

Just how talented is f(x) Luna?

Characteristics of her fans:

True or False?

*Luna’s fans were drawn to her powerful vocals.

*Her fans are less superficial than other fans, but they like girls with a little “meat on their bones”.

*Her fan base thinks Luna is the cutest and sweetest.

*Most people who meet Luna become fans automatically. Even if people don’t become hard core fans, it’s hard to hate Luna.

*She has an impact on international fans, as she always strives to communicate to different people.

*Most people who like her respect real music more than anything.

*Most people who like her also like R&B and Hip-hop.

*Her fan base is the smallest, but the most dedicated.

*Her fan base is very kind and helpful. Her fans are just as cute as she is. But they are also sassy and fierce (in a good way). I’ve run into many, online and off-line…

*Her fans are very down-to-earth. They are very “normal”. They are the least critical. They are extremely humorous.

*Many of her fans like her sense of style.

*Fans of solo artists like IU, Ailee, and BoA are also fans of Luna.

*Many Luna fans drew to her after Amazing f(x), Hello f(x), and Koala f(x) where people got to know her more.

*Hip-hop dancers also respect Luna.

*Luna’s fan base is shy. They are quiet during performances, and only cheer when Luna reaches a key moment. I think they are trying to listen intently to her vocals…

Sulli

PMuDzz1

Sulli is the “Giant Baby” of the group, and is often confused as the youngest member (she’s older than Krystal by a couple of months). She is the tallest member. Sulli began her career as a child actress in Ballad of Seo Dong. She acquired a desire to dance and sing when she attended an SM audition. She plays piano, guitar, and dances Rumba really well. She has nothing but brothers. Sulli is always noted for her unique features, and striking beauty. IU made a song, “Peach”, inspired from her beauty.

Here are articles that focus on more of her charms:

Just how Talented is f(x) Sulli?

Characteristics of her fans:

*Sulli fans are cute and friendly, but a bit too superficial.

*It’s easy to be drawn to Sulli’s charm and cute-ness. Most people can’t help but become a fan of Sulli.

*Sulli’s fans are possibly the youngest (in their families, in their schools, etc…) or just youthful in general.

*Her fans want her to have more lines in f(x)’s songs, but they are happy when Sulli is happy.

*Her fan base is positive and always sees the good in a situation rather than the negative.

Krystal

20140627-040038-14438485

Krystal is the beautiful “maknae” of the group, which means she’s is the youngest. Krystal is known as the younger sister of Jessica from Girl’s Generation (SNSD), a wildly popular all-girl group in Korea. But she has formed her own identity. Unlike her sister, she is known for her chic fashion sense, beauty, and her mysterious personality. Krystal plays piano, sings, and dances really well. She is also quite the ice skater. Krystal is naturally shy, cool, and doesn’t like too much attention. She doesn’t interact much with fans. She’s not phony. She was born in San Francisco, California, USA, but was practically raised in Korea.

Here are other articles that focus on her charms:

f(x)’s charm and Venus

Just how talented is f(x) Krystal?

Characteristics of her fans:

True or False?

*Most of her fans consider her the prettiest member. They may have been drawn to her because of her beauty. Fans consider her to have an enviable body.

*Most Krystal fans are also fans of Girls’ Generation. In fact, they are usually fans of most K-pop girl groups. They are hard-core K-poppers.

*Krystal fans focus on her appearance more than anything, though they will support any event where Krystal displays her talents.

*Most fans push Jungsis (Jessica and Krystal) as a sub-unit.

*This fan base is large, and very powerful.

*She has the hugest male fan base, but the girls aren’t far behind in numbers, either.

*Some fans consider her the “face” of f(x).

*The female fan base ships Krystal with Amber HARD. However, most of the male fans hope to marry her. (The boy in the red pants who stalked her… :P )

*This fan base can be very critical, perfectionists, and have high standards. I always hear these fans criticizing someone’s fashion, whether someone smiles or looks happy or not, whether an idol is nice to fans or not, etc…They often see Krystal as perfect, and expect her to be the perfect idol.

*The fans of Krystal are quite trendy and fashionable, just like Krystal. Some become fans of Krystal because of her stylish clothing.

*This fan base is a little “posh”, but very cool, much like Krystal herself. Some are also cute and dorky.

*The fan base can be a little superficial, but they always know what looks good on each member.

*Fans see two different things in Krystal: New fans see her as cute and adorable, older fans see her as cool and mysterious. She comes across as cute, confident, and friendly, but when you get to know her, she’s shy and quiet. She’s still lovable, though.

*Many fans appreciate Krystal’s grace and and her talents.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think, especially if you chose “false” on any of the above polls! After voting for your bias, let me know why you like that member! I will add it to this list.
