Momoland's Jane confirms that she was a fansite master for Infinite's L

Momoland's Jane appeared on SBS PowerFM’s “Youngstreet” on November 1 with photographer Ahn Tae Young. Along with special DJ and WINNER member Kang Seung Yoon, the three talked about their shared love of photography and cameras. While talking about photography, Kang Seung Yoon asked Jane whether it was true that she had taken photos of a singer before her debut as his fan. It has been widely speculated that Jane was once a “home master,” a Korean term for a fan who runs a web page for their idol and takes photos and video of the celebrity, for INFINITE’s L.

Jane responded by stating, “To be honest, this is actually the first time I’m personally talking about it. Everyone has an artist that they like. Because I love photography, I wanted to capture my favorite artist’s moments through my camera.” Jane also revealed that her speciality is in portraits.

The idol also revealed that her love of photography stems from her father. She explained, “My father used to be a photographer when he was younger. Ever since I was little, he would take photos of me and I would play around with the cameras too. Because of that, I naturally grew an interest for photography.”

There were rumors about this in February, but Jane kept silent about it till now.
Baby's Breath was managed by two fans, Jane who was Myungsoo-biased and a Sunggyu-fan. Jane is the BB_Pudding one aka the one who liked Myungsoo. After Baby's Breath changed to a Sunggyu-only fansite in 2015, BB_Pudding still took pictures of Myungsoo sometimes.

Hmmm. Idk how I feel about some fans calling her a succesful fan since fansite masters are basically stalkers. Just hope she wasn't one of the messy ones.

this is hilarious but also a little embarrassing, lol. it's always funny when idols are revealed to have been big fans of other idols pre-debut, twice's momo and her edited collage always cracks me up

hmmm that last picture of him wearing sunglasses looks like it was taken past security in an airport?

the majority of fansite owners veer into being professional stalkers so easily so this isn't cute to me. and the photos are bad too

I wanna know how many of the current generation of idols used to be fans of older idols or worse, stalkers. Any mad former friends who want to expose them on Pann?
evange_lynne 8th-Nov-2018 12:32 am (UTC)
so basically she was a stalker? like guuurl.
sra_interesante 8th-Nov-2018 01:31 am (UTC)
well .... in kpop fandom culture those fansite headmasters are basically stalkers/sasaengs

let's hope she was between the normal ones and not that creepy fan that idols end up recognizing (and even avoiding) not exactly for good reasons

...i feel like a lot of assumptions are being made here? most fansite masters are just photographers afaik and idols even have good relationships with some of them, they recognize them and say hi
i hope she never crossed any boundaries and that myungsoo/sunggyu support her career lol

I’m also pretty confused as to why people are so against it? Like there are many fansites who take great photos and use the money for good use too?

I mean this is Omona, if you're a fansite then you're automatically most likely a sasaeng lol.
Also I feel like ifans plaster around the label sasaeng so easily? Like fansites being a nuisance in a concert is not a sasaeng activity but that's a bad/rule-breaking fan behavior? (And obviously I'm not supporting that behavior) Legit sasaeng activites are like following to and/or taking pictures of unofficial/private schedules, buying/selling/sharing personal information, calling/messaging their numbers, waiting at the outside of their dorm or even intruding to private properties, etc no?
myrrhcat 9th-Nov-2018 01:25 pm (UTC)
i didn't know omona was biased like that. i'm not gonna claim to know much about what fansites do but if they just take pictures of the idols (which necessitates following them, at least from a respectful distance and only in public areas) i don't see anything wrong with that. totally agree with your definition of sasaeng.
ramenhime 8th-Nov-2018 02:48 am (UTC)
aw, ive always wondered how fansite masters come up w their fansite names (baby breathe ?) lol
myrrhcat 8th-Nov-2018 04:44 am (UTC)
i'm always so satisfied when I figure out the meaning behind them. it's like a puzzle lol
krissasaur 8th-Nov-2018 04:50 am (UTC)
Whenever celebs admit this it just makes me dislike them... okay so you became an idol to stalk oppa more effectively or what? Then again, I look down on fansites.
pikapika217 8th-Nov-2018 05:36 am (UTC)
you're also assuming a lot about her too
krissasaur 8th-Nov-2018 01:12 pm (UTC)
I mean, she followed someone around to take pictures of them, so.
suggestivepeach 8th-Nov-2018 11:55 am (UTC)

She’s smart to make it more about her love of photography than taking photos of her fave lol.

swhyeon1991 9th-Nov-2018 01:02 pm (UTC)
Exactly, her answer is like really REALLY careful it's so funny to me lol.
goshipgurl 8th-Nov-2018 12:51 pm (UTC)
aren't most fansite admins sasaengs? girl...
