Abstract
Social media observations indicate that adolescents who excessive adore their idol partners tend to have sexual orientation that leads to homosexuality. Women who love manga, anime, homosexual-themed novels are called fujoshi while men are called fudanshi. The purpose of this study was to find out whether idol worship rates had an effect on homosexual intense on adolescent fujoshi and fudanshi fans of Korean bands. This study is a cross sectional study of 815 adolescents fujoshi and fudanshi Korean band fans. Data was analyzed using Pearson correlation test. The results obtained from this study are idol worship show positively correlated with intense homosexuality in fujoshi and fudanshi fans of Korean bands (p <0.05). Based on the research results, it can be concluded that higher idol worship rate makes higher homosexual intents on fujoshi and fudanshi Korean band fans. We suggest that fujoshi and fudanshi should control social media in order not to become a crucial part to influence their life. This research becomes basic for further research.
