SS501, Why It's Good To Be Your Fan

On Being a Fan - of SS501

We read this in Soompi Forum official SS501 thread, where I'm a permanent lurker. Since melchan and I consider ourselves a fan of SS501 [if not, then why would my blog be full of them?], we felt that this is a 'must post'.


A korean fan (HIJU1227) summarized reasons why it is a happy thing to be SS501’s fan :

1. Jung Min and Kyu Jong said during the broadcast of Youngstreet Radio that they will buy pancakes (something like that?) for the fans waiting outside of the station, in the end, they really bought it.

2. On a cold day, Hyun Joong bought hot hottokyu (a rice cake soup with sugar added) for the fans waiting for Music Bank.

3. Some fans waited in front of Hyung Jun’s house all the way until late at night, the last bus has also left. Hyung Jun felt that it wasn’t safe late at night, so he sent the fans to a sauna that was open all-night.

4. Hyung Jun who sends hot water to the fans waiting outside of their home.

5. On Youngstreet Radio, when they learnt that a fan wasn’t able to continue her studies due to difficult circumstances, Jung Min and Kyu Jong gathered their money together to help pay the tuition fee for that fan.

6. One time at a fan signing event, after a fan shook Hyung Jun’s hand, she turned around and started crying. Hyung Jun grabbed her hand and helped her wipe away the tears.

7. During the time when MKMF’s cellphone votings were open, Jung Min very seriously said, “(We) don’t want that kind of award, everyone please don’t spend money to vote.”

8. Kyu Jong who bows down 90 degrees to even the younger generation and those who are younger than him.

9. Kyu Jong often say that because he is a member of SS501, at any moment, he must do a impressive job.

10. Hyun Joong always say that compared to gifts, they like genuine and sincere letters even more. So that is why that (and we can see this on TV whenever they walk by fans) whenever the fans give a huge pile of gifts, they only take away the fans’ letters.

11. During the 2006 MKMF, when security guards did not let only TripleS enter the stadium, Hyun Joong indignantly spoke out for TripleS, “The weather is so cold, why do you persistently just won’t let our fans enter?” On that day, the 5 people kept looking for TripleS members in the stadium.

12. Some fans gathered in front of SS501’s apartment making noise, the surrounding neighbors all brought up protests. Hyun Joong let the other 4 members go back into the house, and he himself stayed behind to apologize to the angry residents.

13. Hyun Joong said before, “it’s not for TripleS to protect us, it is us protecting TripleS.”

14. When asked what he hoped for the fans to send him, Hyun Joong said, “The things that we need we will buy ourselves.” When a fan sent a name brand handbag to Hyun Joong, he said, “I feel really sorry for accepting this kind of present, it’s not as good as if (she) were to just buy more of our CD.”

Quoting what the Chinese translator added:
“501 who cherishes fans like this, of course they are worthy of everyone’s confidence… Who in the world has seen this kind of role models? It is impossible to not fall in love with 501. I really feel that it is too great to be 501’s fan, I am so happy. I will continue to work hard to be a good fan for them.”
