Hello lovely readers~ I'm sorry this isn't a story update, but one will follow shortly tomorrow! I just wanted to let you know that I changed the listed genre of this story to Realistic Fiction instead of Fan Fiction. I don't know how this will affect the story, but rest assured, the story will continue as intended with BTS and friends despite the change.
To answer the question in the title:
1) The MC is Iris Huang, a fictional character along with her family and the other Big Hit trainees. Any k-pop idols included in this story are secondary leads.
2) BTS are not the only k-pop included in this story; thus, this is more of a k-pop fanfic if anything. With that said, they are more integral to the story than the others.
But because this story began as an entry into the BTS writing competition, I have since after its end gotten some hate for writing it merely due to BTS fanfics swamping the Fan Fiction section. (I really don't see the case for it because the top popular fan fics listed only showed 3 BTS fan fics including mine much lower down the browsing results. But with the contest, the sudden influx probably messed up the New section.)
In short, imagine this as a fictional story that's realistic in being set in the modern world and time with real-life people's names. This story was never completely about BTS, it was about Iris surviving in the music industry. It's like saying a fantasy story can't also be a romance; even though, the story may be listed under Fantasy as the main genre.
3) I see stories on here not listed as fan fiction when they're based on TV shows and series, and the story MC is clearly the MC of that original show. Since I think my story follows Realistic Fiction more than as a BTS fan fiction since it isn't totally centered around them, I changed it two weeks after the competition ended. Additionally, now no one can complain about their favorite fan fiction being overrun by BTS ones.... I don't want to inadvertently add to the hate that BTS receives for stupid reasons like this.
Anyway, those are my reasons for both any new or old readers. I had initially created this story for the contest in hopes of being considered different from the ones commonly found on Wattpad. I wanted to remain respectful to BTS while creating a truly original but modern story.
As always, thank you for reading and supporting this story! <3
