#KPOPStans4LENI: PH KPop stans take a stand in 2022 elections

May 2, 2022 0 comments


Admit it or not but K-Pop stans are known for cheering the loudest at concerts. But Filipino K-Pop stans didn't stop there, as they filled the Amoranto Sports Complex last May 1 during K-Fiesta with lots of fan chants and cheers, they came together to show solidarity and love for the country.
As the presidential election nears, K-pop stans used their voice to help "undecided" fans to reflect on their chosen candidate. Started with an online Filipino group of K-pop fans, called KPOP STANS 4 LENI, these people made it possible to bring the online “ingay” to lansangan. 
This kind of activity alone proves that they have a platform, and it is now time to use it to motivate people to select a new leader that has a huge potential for better governance.

What motivates you to join #KPOPStans4LENI movement?

For Vinnie, a Professional Chef and fan of BTOB, NCT, and DAY6, she acknowledged how they spend so much energy and time defending and supporting their faves, why can't they do the same for the Filipino people?The movement helps in motivating other K-pop stans to reflect on their votes and to choose to stand for good governance,” she added.


“Everything is political, whether you accept it or not. We are who we support/vote. Like how we meticulously choose our kpop groups/biases that we want to support, we should also choose great and qualified politicians for the sake of our country and countrymen's future,” Mecca, 22-year-old fan of NCT, SEVENTEEN, DAY6, Stray Kids, and TREASURE, said. 
We stan a group, we set a certain standard. Of course, setting a good standard must be applied well in choosing a president to manage our country. Setting expectations and standards must not be selective,” Andeng, a 22-year-old fan of ASTRO, stated.
For Louie, a 15-year-old fan of Stray Kids, said, “I’m not yet a registered voter but choosing the right candidate to vote this election connects in a way that we know how to choose our bias, like how we support the one who deserve the hype and not the one's who has contemporary issues.”


“KPop fans, regardless of the fandom, are known to be dedicated, loyal, and creative. To see young people be politically aware means they are putting their education to good use, and they care about their future,” Melody, 28-year-old fan of NCT and EXO, stated.
As Cami, 21-year-old fan of BTOB and DAY6, said, “If I already love these seven boys who are from the other side of the country, who doesn’t even know my name, then shouldn't I love my own country even more? Kung mahal mo at ipinaglalaban mo yung mga kpop idols, bakit hindi ang ating sariling bayan?
“The kpop community in the Philippines has been getting larger and larger, especially with the youth. That is why, it is a powerful platform to start this kind of movement,” she added.
