KPOP idols do have some phobias that may take their fans aback. These idols have their own fear that they are not able to get over
1. Taeyeon (Girls’Generation)
As we all know, KPOP stars’ main work is performing in front of cameras. Moreover, they have to attend many fan sign events or meeting events which are always surrounded by cameramen and journalists.
Also, when they participate in airports, there are lots of paparazzi and cameras toward them.
In a live show, Taeyeon admitted that she was fearful of cameras so much that she felt insecure and even fainted.
She said that, “Because everyone is looking at only me, I am extremely nervous and feel burdened. I have a fear of the camera. I can’t think of anything to say when there’s a camera.”
Therefore, she had to practice looking straight at cameras a lot. She claimed that it was a treatment for her.
After spending so much time in front of one, and exposing so much of who she is, she feels less vulnerable and more confident when seeing a camera.
2. Dasom (Sistar)
Sistar was one of the girl groups whose members have ̾s̾e̾xy and stunning looks. Even more, most of their songs have an energetic and happy vibe.
Because of their music concepts, their performing clothes are usually skirts and cropped tops in order to express the songs’ vibes and their healthy bo∂ιєs.
Also, for this reason, Dasom, a member of Sistar, gradually developed the habit of noticing even the smallest differences in her weight.
She once admitted that her biggest fear was getting chubbier. The former Sistar member said she lived in constant fear of gaining weight, and that she even resorted to tasting food and spitting it out eventually to avoid putting on pounds.
Though this is proven to be harmful to the body, Dasom couldn’t do differently because if she hadn’t done that, she couldn’t have the mind for doing anything else.
3. Sunny (Girls’ Generation)
Sunny has phonophobia, also called ligyrophobia or sonophobia, the fear of loud noises, and the reason behind that is quite saddening.
Girls’ Generation’s Sunny spent her younger days in Kuwait during the Gulf War. She was exposed to вσмвs and gunshots, which has caused her to have a form of shell ̾s̾h̾o̾c̾k.
Fireworks cause her trauma to resurface, reminding her of her younger days.
In many stages, she sometimes got confused when hearing fireworks sounds, even though they were just sound effects.
4. J-Hope (BTS)
J-hope, along with Jin, significantly likes to make people laugh.
One of his iconic moments, which was revealed on Youtube, entertained ARMYs a lot.
Specifically, when J-Hope had to have a photoshoot with a snake, he could barely contain his fear. Then, him yelling “I hate snakes” became an iconic line with ARMY.
Actually, snakes are his terrible fear until now. You could really sense J-Hope’s fear whenever the snake moved even a little bit.
He didn’t seem happy about spiders either.
5. Momo (TWICE)
Momo does reach people’s expectations with her powerful dance moves and charismatic performances. Yet, according to other members, Momo is the most fragile girl in the group.
Momo is basically afraid of everything! From heights to ghosts, to even ordering food, she’s constantly jumping and screaming.
Though some of her phobias are understandable because most of the people are scared of darkness and ghosts, the remainings seem quite odd.
6. Amber (F(x))
Amber is well known for being an energetic and unique female idol. She also had some solo products before departing from SM Entertainment.
When asked about her fear, Amber replied truthfully in tears that she was scared to be alone, adding, “I need help. There are so many things that I don’t know, yet there are so many challenges. And because I have so many faults, I need help.”
After that, her fans always try to make sure that she is okay, and also show sympathy and support as much as possible.
7. SoJin (Girl’s Day)
Sojin of Girl’s Day is extremely scared of braised chicken feet. She can’t even bear to look at it because it ḟŕệäḳs her out.
She said “It doesn’t even look like food to me. Whenever I see the dish, I feel like the feet are going to fly at me and attack me” as she imitated the shape of the chicken feet with her hands.
Even though grilled chicken feet are one of the most popular street foods in many Asian countries, it’s still not on SoJin’s menu.
8. Jennie (BLACKPINK)
Jennie used to join many live shows which reveals one of her fears is about insects, especially spiders.
This is a quite common phobia and is shared by lots of people, including many KPOP stars.
Though Jennie has always been famous for her fierce and cold appearance, the female idol admitted that she would jump at the sight of one and run away.
Sometimes, when the insect looked too odd, she would just stand still, screaming out until someone came and helped.
