Fan club

120905_10a

Creating fan clubs has become very trendy in Cambodia lately. Not until long ago we were crazy about our favourite singer secretly.

Through internet and TV stars appear reachable, almost as close enough to touch. Sharing passion about an idol with like-minded people even increases the feeling of closeness to your favorite star.

Sim used to be a member of a Sokun Nisa fan club. About his motivation to join the club he says: “I like Sokun Nisa, and by registering in the fan club I could gain more information about her.”

Being in a fan club does not only provide information but sometimes even backstage passes. Many fans that are organized in fan clubs buy their star flowers and little presents.  In return the fans have their picture taken with their idol and are given good seats during the show.

Despite all the benefits being in a fan club has to offer there are also some negative aspects to it. Sam admits: “It was a time consuming activity, and it an affects your studies especially if one doesn’t know how to manage his or her time well.”
