Abstract

The development of the Korean wave in Asia, especially in Indonesia becomes a phenomenon that is widely discussed not only among adolescents but also lively discussed among early adults. The love of music or drama originating in Korea gave birth to a term of fangirl or female fans. Starting from a sense of awe, then the worship behavior is formed or often referred as celebrity worship. This study used qualitative method, case studies of 3 Fangirls aged 20-30 years. The data was reached by doing an observation and an interview then being analyzed by thematic analysis. The results showed that the three subjects liked their idol because their idol's talents and abilities and their idols could motivate and inspire their lives. They were active in finding news through any media regarding the existence of idols, fashion, love life, and the schedule of their idol activities. They also were willing to do voting activities so that their idols get prestigious music awards and are willing to profit from buying official albums, t-shirts, and items that are identical to their idols.
