Talk about throwbacks.
We have a whole new wave of boy band mania, thanks to Korean idols and English boys.
They’ve stolen headlines and hearts around the world, and we’ve seen firsthand how crazy their girl and boy fans can get, hence this new category to anoint Singapore’s favourite boy band.
It’s time we see who has the stronger army behind them, don’t you think? In short: Fans, fight it out.
One album. One movie. One fan day.
That will definitely top the list of accomplishments that the UK boy band will list under 2013.
When The New Paper, together with HOT FM91.3, threw a special screening party for the movie One Direction: This Is Us, 300 local Directioners screamed and cried throughout the film.
And, the five heart-throbs, who released their second album Midnight Memories last month, were not even there.
That same scene was multiplied a thousand times all over the world when One Direction held their 1D Day — streamed live around the world — just a few days before their album release.
But the question remains: Are Directioners more passionate than K-pop fans?
