"Anecdote of me leaving the fandom after attending a fansign event

600K won to apply for the fansign
500K won for my bias' gift
300K won to buy clothes for the fansign
79K won for my nails since I have to show my hands
10K won because I had to buy earrings in a rush on the day of the fansign because I lost the back of my earring
30K won for drying my hair
16K won for taking the taxi to the fansign event

(T/N: OP spent around 1.15K USD in total)

F*ck, writing it down like this, I really spent a lot of money

Plus, I had to work on a national holiday to get a day off for the fansign

My bias knows my face. I get nervous and stutter whenever I'm in front of my bias. I also have compulsion to make sure I don't take too much time at the fansign.

I memorized everything I had to say like a script and said it one by one
1. I told my bias about receiving a verification for my gift. I asked by bias about his thoughts on my outfit that day. He didn't even know it was a gift. 
Him: Ah really?

2. I told him about something I did well externally
Him: Ah really?

3. I told him about something I did within the fandom
Him: Ah really?

I memorized the script and after hearing my bias say "ah really?" 3 times in a row, I came down. No matter how I think about it, I don't think I could've done better than that.

I started thinking
Was I hoping for too much?
Did I do something wrong?

After seeing fancams from other fans, I thought "did I go down too fast?". Seems like it was my fault for not staying longer"

original post: here

1. I also left the fandom after attending a fansignㅋㅋㅋㅋ hearing "ah really?" 3 times in a row is oba, seriously... even I feel sad

2. That's why I only fangirl frugally

3. I also spent a lot on my fangirl life and all that's left are nothing but physical album that I need to filter in the trash and the recycling bin...

4. That's why I don't go to fansigns

5. I just fangirl lightly. I just watch their self-made contents on YT and fancams and listen to their songs. I don't spend any moneyㅋ

6. Why would that person become an idol? If he wants to make a living, he should treat people like VIP. Even department store people do thatㅋ

7. I'm begging you, please fangirl on K-pop idols frugallyㅠㅠ The more you spend, the less you have remaining

8. So this is where the "ah really?" meme comes from ㅋㅋㅋ

9. I also left the fandom after going to the fansignㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. Being an idol is a job too and he's being at work there
