It isn’t easy being a K-Pop fan, and for what may be the first time in her life, LE SSERAFIM‘s Sakura understood the feeling first hand! The singer was a member of HKT48 and IZ*ONE before joining her current group, so she has always been the one being idolized instead of the one idolizing. Needless to say, she’s never needed to act like a fan before.
But in a past vlog, she experienced something only fans do—pre-ordering an album. She attempted to pre-order LE SSERAFIM’s first mini album, FEARLESS, before the group’s official debut, but she didn’t expect how difficult it would be.
Using her phone, she became frustrated by the number of times she was asked to verify her identity. She called it “complicated” and thanked fans for going through such experiences to be able to support them.
Did I do it? Ugh, it’s so complicated! Fans! Thank you for going through such a difficult process. I don’t know how many times I had to verify myself. Gee.
Finally, after some time, she was able to successfully order the albums! She rejoiced and expressed a wish to receive her own photocard. Photocards are randomly assigned, so there’s no telling what she’ll get. But because it’s LE SSERAFIM, any would be good!
My order is complete! It’s my first pre-order ever. I hope I get my photocard.
Pre-ordering the group’s debut album may not have gone the way Sakura expected, but it was undoubtedly an eye-opening experience.
In the same video, she showered fellow LE SSERAFIM member Kazuha with praise following an unexpected and sweet gesture. Read all about it here:
