HORI7ON made waves on social media as NYLON Manila’s October cover stars, and here are some of our favorite fan reactions from X (formerly Twitter)!
When the HORI7ON for NYLON Manila teasers and materials dropped, we (who are mostly K-pop and P-pop fans) experienced being on the other side of fan culture for once. Seeing the reactions to the cover story, photos, videos, TikToks, and podcast was an exciting experience. From seeing fans react or make jokes on the timeline to seeing them print the photos from the shoot, we agreed that fandom is such a unique experience, shared across a wide population. So, when these reactions hit our timelines, we couldn’t help but relate!
The seven-member global group have some dedicated, sweet, and hilarious fans (called ANCHORs), and we’ve compiled some of our favorite reactions to the group’s feature on NYLON Manila from X (formerly Twitter, the stomping grounds of fandoms) so you can see just how much fun they had.
HOORAY FOR NEW ANCHORS
pogi sila ha . I-stan ko kaya. Feeling ko worth it silang istan https://t.co/yZEXN4dUwZ— furel (@furelme) October 17, 2023
One great thing about social media is how fast the talents, looks, and even personalities of artists reach a wide audience. People from all over the world can easily discover new artists and their music, as well as how great they are as people! And yes, sometimes with just one song, photo, or video, you can immediately tell how worth it stanning someone is going to be.
omg welcome back to me huhu sooper busy todei tas ang daming pasabog bigla ahhckckkc https://t.co/eLM0UV09P1— keym (@kimchyye_htng) October 15, 2023
Lots of people live out their busy lives fully while also still having the time and energy for stanning. For this user, no matter how tired they were, they probably got a jolt of energy from all the pasabog from the group!
kitang kita yung details ng mga damit sa bts na inupload sa tiktok acct ng hori, and I just wanna say ang galing ng designer so much 😭✨ iba't ibang fabric ang gamit at style ng modern barong ng bawat isa 😭✨ https://t.co/pH4s51Xv6r— alwayskimci⚓️ h7n on AAA 😭😭✨✨✨ (@riley_anchor) October 17, 2023
Styling is a vital part of any act, photoshoot, the artist’s general public image, and so much more. And when designers and stylists serve, like stylist Quayn Pedroso with assistance from Jia Torrato and Alexie did here, the artists serve even harder. Styling also sets the tone for the entire layout. Get them their flowers!
One thing about stans—they will always know their idol from a mile away. ANCHORs took to pausing, rewinding, screenshotting, and even editing photos to see which members of HORI7ON were on the teasers.

Fans can manifest anything, truly. This DM was sent just days after we shot HORI7ON for the cover, so this fan’s spidey senses were tingling for sure.
PRIDE AND JOY
Reading the article is kind of making me a bit emotional. The write-up was really, really good. 💞❤️💗— M4dz (@m4dz_19) October 15, 2023

There’s something so rewarding about watching your idols grow and reach new heights. The connection fans have with the artists they love is so strong that there’s just a sense of pride that comes with seeing them achieve things as you cheer them on.
WHO IS THAT?
Who's this gorgeous man? https://t.co/rY5sN96cNR— yscydkkdjh (@gen25beh) October 17, 2023
The amount of people asking who a certain HORI7ON member was is awesome to see. And the responses—from wholeheartedly giving up all the information about the member to jokingly gatekeeping—were also so funny to see on the timeline.
WHEN YOUR BIAS LINE BECOMES THE WHOLE GROUP
wala na magulo ma ulit bias line ko https://t.co/V8n4rBGMKD— klenzy •inactive• (@klenzyylna) October 17, 2023
What’s the point in choosing a bias line when every single member bias-wrecks like their life depended on it? Good luck sorting out your biases.
Leave it to a stan to make the funniest slang references to praise their idol! Winston in this distressed top with genius jackstone details truly was a life-changing serve.
Nice one for @NYLONManila, really pulled off these editorial photos withour boys! The concept is great, it looks like they were photograph on a seashore looking at the horizon, now the teaser vid really makes sense!#HORI7ONforNYLON#HORI7ON #호라이즌 #ホライズ#WeAreOneForSeven pic.twitter.com/SaAN7pwUh3— ⚓ (@HORI7ONFASHION) October 15, 2023
We’re not just hyping the HORI7ON shoot team up here—we’re glad that fans understood the concept and the story told throughout the layouts! So, this is how K-Pop creative teams feel whenever they drop concept photos.
BONUS: SOMEONE CALL TYRA
You're an ANTM contestant and Winston is one of your rivals, slaying photoshoot each week…— Winston's Jajangmyeon 🦊🍜 (@wnstn_jjngmyn) October 19, 2023
Time to pack up~ https://t.co/zVqD0AINqV
Winston would never been on the bottom two, that’s for sure! HORI7ON proved how multi-talented they are as they slayed and served in every photo and layout. The hundreds of thousands of views on each individual photo would definitely secure them an ANTM win.
