It goes without saying that K-pop fans are among the most dedicated group of people when it comes to pop culture and fandoms, so much so that some re-define what it means to be a K-pop fan!

In a interesting new Pann thread, fans were asked the question "What's the craziest thing you've done as a fan?" With the community comprised of many different people with differing music tastes and personalities, the answers were certainly very fascinating.

Here are some of the craziest things that fans have done in the name of K-pop:

  • I guess I'm just a regular fan. All I've done is buy albums, watch music videos, stream songs, and watch their variety shows ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ didn't know that was so simple compared to others ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
  • I paid for a food truck.

  • I slept in line for four days to buy tickets to their concert.

  • ㅎㅎㅎㅎ... attended their international tour...

  • Under the pressures that I'd never see AOA again if they disband, I bought 150 copies of their debut album and attended every single fan signing. I'm also 5 hours from Seoul but I went to all 3 days of their last concert..

  • I think.. once you become a fan, you give up a part of you that makes you human ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I normally hate sitting on the floor and hate waiting but I waited 9 hours in the dirt to buy tickets ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ and of course I failed ^^

  • My parents said they'd let me go to their concert if I did well in this certain class so I studied like crazy and passed with a 99

  • Studied for the sake of being a fan... ㅠ Parents said I had to be top 5 in the class, top 1 in my homeroom to go to their concert so I did just that... then they said they'd give me $100 to spend towards my fangirling stuff if I got valedictorian so I got up to salutatorian and got $50... ㅠ

  • ㅋㅎ Ever write a fanfic?

  • I live in Cali and it took me 6 hours to get to their concert after my part time job and I got there 10 minutes before it began. I also did my make up in 5 minutes in the car since I'd be in the front row. Then I went to class the next day after driving back 6 hours ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ I'd never do this if it wasn't for BTS

  • I have a friend who bought ipads for every single member in their gifts...
