[teen stories] A SOCIETY WITH ONLY WHITE PEOPLE IS SCARY

No matter how we claim that Psy and BTS raised the awareness of Korea, they still can't care less about Korea. They still don't even know who BTS is and those cool inssa (t/n: cool kids in the school, "insiders") in high-teen dramas will never listen to KPOP they still just live in their own world.
I don't know if it's like this anywhere else than USA, but USA are living in their own world and they really don't care about what's happening around them, it's like they don't see the necessity to care 
Even when there's talks about how some things in Korea is better than USA, they still talk about it with no soul in them

That's true, but they also have this bias that KPOP is an otaku thing. To the Americans, they look at us like Japanese people who love anime

That's why we need to develop our national power

This isn't fake, I've lived overseas and the kids overseas all hate on KPOP, especially BTS. When they pass next to me, they would purposely say stuff like "BTS sucks" and make me madㅋㅋㅋ I never really listened to KPOP but they're always like that to me

If you want this to disappear, we should abandon the thought of Western superiority...We all unconsciously think that way, we always want to gain more popularity with Western countries, for example we look at Westerners' looks and when we compare we always think they look better, we need to recognize that and fix that first

Is it because I don't understand all this stuff, but why do we need Westerners to acknowledge us all the time?ㅋㅋㅋ  They have the right to not care about us... It's the same thing saying how we don't really care about Romania or Afghanistan
