that's what bokeh is

OOF background is a fact, and can be predicted (measured) before the shot. Bokeh is how pleasant the qualities of that blur appear to the observer.

Whether someone finds the blur "pleasant" is subjective.  saying this is bokeh is the same thing as saying bokeh is subjective, which is the same as saying it is NOT REAL and exist only in the mind.
