When we hear the words "idol fans," it usually stirs up images of teen girl fans that cry out "oppa." The beginning of 1st generation idols, H.O.T, was labeled the "teen"s idol." However, idols are no longer the exclusive property of teen fans. As the idol market grew, idol fandoms have been overtaken by fans in their 20s and 30s.
