The only thing I can think of is that they believe we have a fetish with these idols just because of their Asian descent, and although that may be the case for a slight few, it's definitely not the case for most of us.
But I'm sorry such a rude thing happened to you (with them using your picture and all), but that's awesome that you've received so much love at cons from people who understood! And thank you for the kind words! Hopefully I'll do Bom soon, she's one of my favs <3
yeah looking at online comments its seems to be focused on the fetish and wanting to look korean. But i mean im pretty sure orange caramel would never wear their outfits other then on stage, hence stage outfits which are what people cosplay.
if you go to Kcon this summer you could do Bom haha
