Is It Possible to Stan A Group that Doesn’t Exist?

Chogiwa – It’s been a long time I didn’t write for a weekend feature. However, today I feel like I’m doing it after seeing some videos in VLENDING Youtube Channel. And a big question just appeared in my head, “Is it possible to stan a group that doesn’t exist?”. Well, logically is impossible because if the group doesn’t exist, how could you stan them?

Is It Possible to Stan A Group that Doesn’t Exist?

It is actually a rhetorical question with an obvious answer. However, you may change your mind when you watch “Imitation”. It is a drama that just premiered a couple of days ago on KBS2. “Imitation” is a drama about the life of idols. So, you could expect that “Imitation” is packed with idols. The casts are consisting of the member SF9, ATEEZ, UKISS, T-ARA, and some new idols like Park Yuri. There are also some idols from earlier generations such as Danny Ahn from G.O.D, Shim Eun Ji from Baby V.O.X, and Suwoong from Boys Republic.

In VLENDING Youtube Channel you will find some videos about SHAX, Tea Party and Sparkling. Who are they? Well, they are fictional groups exist only in the drama “Imitation”. So, they are practically don’t exist. However, how could you refuse the charm they showed in the video? Even, Tea Party has fictional debut in Music Bank.

Wow, “Imitation” Promotion Is Totally Another Level

It is true that “Imitation” promotion is totally another level. As mentioned above, Tea Party even has a fictional debut in Music Bank. SHAX also has a fictional Q&A session interview talking about their new song “MALO”. Those who have no idea about this drama may think that they are a new boy group. When the fact is they are only idols who should perform as one group in a drama. That is how real the promotion is. However, still, even the idols themselves are very professional. It seems like they are really in a new group.

Moreover, to make it even more real. Each of the group even opened an official social media on Twitter.

ATINY must be super excited since there are four members in this drama. The maknae Jungho will be part of SHAX. While San, Yunho and Seongwa will be the part of Sparkling.
