Since Jungah’s birthday party there has been a fight within our fandom: Afterschool vs. E-young. This fight like all the other fights started off over silly things, so I didn’t comment on it because I hoped like the other fights, it will pass. As you remember e-young wasn’t at Jungah’s birthday party, Which made fans question whether or not E-young was even invited, but it was later revealed that E-young was in America during Jungah’s birthday party. So let me get to my point. On August 16 it was E-young’s Birthday none of the members wished E-young Happy Birthday on any on their SNS accounts. Being AS fan for six years now I know the girls don’t always wish each other Happy Bday online, so I didn’t care much but AS not wishing her Happy Bday restarted Afterschool vs. E-young feud. It got to the point where fans were hating on the girls for “singling out” E-young. Especially Raina because she updated her twitter on E-young’s B-day. Normally I don’t have problem with Fans fighting, but when they starting going on the members’ SNS accounts to hate on them because of their own assumption, it became a problem. I say “their own assumption” because after people wouldn’t stop bothering the members on why they didn’t celebrate E-young’s Bday. Lizzy finally respond to one Fan. She said this:
The Pictures E-young posted on IG her are from 2 weeks ago, the time around August 2nd (jungah’s Bday). There is a big age gap between AS members. The older members are not as close to the younger member as they are with one another and that is not because they don’t like each other. Jungah is 11 years older then Kaeun and 9 years older than Lizzy and E-young. They are not bestest of friend but that doesn’t mean they are not friends at all. Jungah hangs out with people around the same age as her because they understand each other more. They grew up around they same era. That also applies to rest of the members. They don’t need inform us on everything they do together. They don’t need to wish each other Happy Birthday online because they can do that over the phone. They get along, they respect one another, and they support each other. That should be good enough for everyone. Fans always forget at the end of the day the girls are just co-workers, it is a blessing for us that AS members actually get along and they work in an environment where they can leave when they feel like it is time for them to close this chapter of their lives and enter the next. So next time please don’t fight over something that silly, because all the reasons that started this fight were proven wrong and it made us, as a Fandom, look like asses. Please don’t ever stoop that low again, where you post hateful things on the members’ SNS. At the end of the day it is not Afterschool vs. E-young because E-young is a part of AFTERSCHOOL.
please leave a comment on what you think about all this.
