02. how did you get into kpop? (thunggyu)
I honestly had to think for a while!
I go into K-Pop in 2006. My friend Marion showed me a lot of Big Bang videos and songs and gave them to me (on a CD), so at first I only listened to them. Then afterwards I downloaded more music, mostly Super Junior and DBSK, I guess. I got interested in more and more bands and I also started to watch shows like Exploration of the Human Body and Hello Baby, and I fell in love with more bands. Before K-Pop I listened to J-Rock as well, then I listened to both for a while but sooner or later I lost interest in J-Rock and basically listened to K-Pop only.
I actually knew DBSK in 2005 because my friend showed me some of their songs but I didn't like them haha.
And funnily enough I also didn't like B.A.P's Warrior at first. I only started to like it during my trip to Seoul! Afterwards I fell in love with them.
The most funny thing is how I got into EXO though, lol. The only reason I got into them was because of HunHan haha. I was never interested in EXO and I didn't care about them, but then I saw MILLIONS of photos of Sehun and Luhan on my dashboard in February/March 2012 and was like "Who the fuck is this?" and wanted to know more about them after a while, and after finding out who they were I basically swore to myself that I wouldn't get into EXO, I just thought HunHan was really cute and I thought how unfair it was that they weren't in one sub-unit lmao. I started to read fanfics and so I got to know the other members and so on. Then their first MVs and songs were released and oh well... by that time I already loved them!
Sorry for my boring answer :c
Boring picture, but I didn't know what else to post. I met my friend and we had coffee and went for a walk afterwards, then we had dinner and took another walk and just talked and laughed for hours. It was really nice.
