There are many things that make K-pop special, but there are those tiny things that somehow get on your nerves despite being incredibly unimportant.

In an interesting new thread over on Reddit, K-pop fans got into a fascinating (and funny) discussion about their first-world K-pop problems. With Reddit being the home to a large number of fans who have diverse tastes and interests, the answers were certainly very interesting.

Here are some big first world K-pop problems according to fans:

  • Not getting the photo card you wanted

  • Shipping prices for physical albums, but at least they are available.
  • A lot of glorious K-pop songs don't have their official instrumentals released.

  • I don't know if this would qualify, but as an American, I flip flop between wanting kpop to become a thing in the states or if I want them to just stay in Korea and enjoy it in secret. Like I would love for my faves to get some more notice and more fans but I feel like the radio/tv/etc overplays everything so much that I would lose interest fast. I don't know, it's more selfish reasons than anything else.

  • Too much content to go through. :(
  • I've been blessed by too many juicy idol survival shows and therefore am getting no work done during the weekend.

  • JYP artists not being on Spotify. Thank god for Warner Music Japan or I wouldn't have any Twice.

  • The higher BTS gets the harder/more expensive it's gonna be to buy tickets rip
  • Not being able to keep up with all the BTS content. So I don't even try anymore. I already know I adore them.

  • I only have the top of my dresser to put kpop albums and now I have to many albums to display prettily so I have to put them in a row like a bookshelf now :(
