This shows the immense online support sones were showing!
I felt so heartbroken when Tiffany was greeted on stage with a silent audience, despite winning the biggest award of the night. Sones may not have been a huge part of the crowd, but we’ll forever be supporting the girls over the Internet.
I remember when Soshified interviewed the girls back in New York 2011, that Taeyeon and the girls were tearing up because us international sones would always function with Korean time because no matter what timezones we were from, we’d always have to stay up for the release of their new music videos. And the YTMA was no different.
Man, I still feel as if I’m on a YTMA high. I’m proud that I was one of the sones to tune in to watch her receive the award. Even I couldn’t believe the final voting tally in the end. Over 3 fcking million votes?! That’s insane! And I hope other fandoms will finally understand that their idols had no chance against us for this award.
Proud of my girls, proud of my fandom. I’m glad that I’m able to be apart of such an amazing experience. I was sucked into the fandom back in 2009 and I assure you, that I don’t think I’ll be leaving such an amazing community anytime soon.
