How can I let some of my family and friends accept the fact that I am into Korean Culture and that I like KPop?
Recently, I haven't been able to go to youtube to watch some música videos of my favorito! bands in KPop. So when I have the time to sit down and watch TV, I watch Myx (Filipino Channel devoted to Music) o mtv so I can watch it there instead. Usually, when I am going to watch, my parents are watching as well, so we switch between channels (our other TV is under repair) and when I am going to ask if I can watch it a little bit longer, because it's about to end anyway, they'd say no, saying that I watched it about a hundred times already. My parents also say that I'm too obsessed with my fandoms and I should lay off it; they don't see my friends listening to KPop 24/7. And whenever we hear música that's not in English, my parents will go all like; that's tu KPop again, isn't it?
And my friends also can't accept the fact, they'll get all annoyed if I talk about KPop ad don't know anything about the latest American Music. They gradually stopped talking to me about Music.
And I want to go to Korea. I always wanted to. But my parents and friends will be all mad saying I really am too obsessed. And if I spout out facts about misceláneo countries (interested in study of the world and countries~) and suddenly go to Korea (and japón for that matter =_=) they will flinch and look at me like I've grown an extra head o something.
I really want to stop this treatment, but I'm not willing to go shut up about Korea (and Japan) just because of this. They have to accept the fact, but I really don't know what to do. Can someone help me on this? because of this.
