Frenzied: Fans go wild at last month's Mnet music awards. -- ST PHOTO: NEO XIAOBIN I am a huge fan of K-pop, and the fandom Adeline Chia referred to in Sick Of K-pop Cult - red lightsticks and all - is the fandom I belong to. K-pop has nothing to do with cults. Where Ms Chia refers to us as cults, we talk about families. We support one another when we are going through difficult times. We cry together and we laugh together. Talking about our fandom as a 'cult' is highly offensive. You would not call your own family a cult, would you? Where we wave red lightsticks during the songs, Metallica's fans would pull out their lighters during Nothing Else Matters. We are just fans showing our support for our idols.
