Pillows Let Fans Sleep Next To Korean Stars
Fans are always looking for ways to feel closer to their idols or display their devotion.
However, these fans’ behaviour can sometimes come off as a little strange to outsiders.
Recently, a netizen shared photos of some very quirky pillows to a Facebook group Subtle Asian Traits.
The cushions bear the sleeping faces of various Korean celebrities on one side, making it look like you can lie next to them. Or their likenesses, at least.
While some users gushed about how much they wanted one, others found the pillows a little “creepy”.
Pillows with Korean stars’ faces draw mixed reactions
On Monday (18 Apr), Facebook user Dennis Law took to the community page subtle asian traits to share photos of pillows with Korean stars’ faces printed on them.
The idols have their eyes closed and are positioned on one side of the pillow. This means that when someone lies on the other side, it almost looks as if they are sleeping next to each other.
“Be honest… how many of y’all would buy these,” OP asked in his caption.
Judging from the responses in the comments section, it does look like there is a demand for these unusual items.
“Mine. Jimin and Yoongi pillows. How much?” wrote one user, referring to two BTS members.
On the other hand, several folks found these pillows “creepy” and a little obsessive.
Those who clicked to the last photo of the post were treated to a hilarious surprise — a version of the pillow with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s face on it, complete with a woman next to him.
The cheeky edit certainly amused netizens, who quipped that they would get it for themselves or the people they dislike.
Just a little harmless fun
While celebrity obsessions are a real and potentially dangerous thing, buying a novelty pillow is just a case of cute, harmless fun.
Unfortunately for fans keen on getting their hands on one of these, the OP did not share where the pillows can be purchased. However, we’re sure you can easily order them from K-pop merchandise stores.
Well, except the Kim Jong-un one, maybe. But who knows?
