803. DAY 02

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

#100HappyDays Day02:

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.

I started with DBSK and Super Junior and somewhere between I also listened to Big Bang XD but I moved on to F.T Island after like a year of being kpop fan and then I started to explore other groups~ I think DBSK and SuJU and Big Bang fandoms felt...too big? for me, idk. I also liked SHINee a lot but I somehow lost interest in them OTL...B.A.P, EXO and FTI are my favs now :)

haha so it's basically the same just... the other way round XD
i'm not really in any fandom anyway so... i just really love their music and also the members, but i mostly don't really follow any activities. seriously, i never know what's going on lol. ain't nobody got time for that XD
i like shinee a lot, but somehow i don't like a lot of their songs? but i still love all the members and i'm interested in them. they're very talented and funny, too.

Wahhhh I really appreciate that you've been in K-Pop for a long time now! It's not very easy to find people who recognize "older" K-Pop (even though it's not even really that old). YOU EVEN KNOW EXPLORATION OF THE HUMAN BODY! Seriously one of the funniest (and also at times heartwarming) idol shows I've watched. Who were your biases in SJ?

Also, no one can really escape EXO hehe.

Oooh what kind of coffee is that? It looks like a macchiato from this angle?

PS: I appreciate the icon <3

ikr, a lot of people only know the newer k-pop bands and i'm like "wow you're mising out on sooo many good bands. like THE REAL ONES" lol. (not that the newer ones aren't interesting/great/talented but... yeah. you know what i mean).
ofc i know that show, i love it sfm! it's so funny and just... yes, please. gimme more of it XD and hangeng was there, too ;___; sobs, my baby. and db5k omg. my heart.

my bias was hangeng. and i also really loved kangin, eunhyuk and donghae.

ikr exo is everywhere haha but they're so awesome and talented, i was really amazed. i thought they would be such a random group lol. oh, how wrong i was XD

yeah it's an iced latte macchiato! *_*

hehe <3 ot5

Omgomgomgomgomg Hangeng was one of my biases too!!! He was such a precious, heartwarming guy; I always felt like taking care of him because of how much he had been through. Then because he really took care of him, Heechul also became my bias. HanChul was so real it hurt. I also liked Eunhyuk and Siwon. Kangin will always be oppa in my eyes; ugh he's just so masculine.

Lol I probably sound either like a caffeine addict or a stalker. I promise I'm not both (well maybe a little of the first lol).
Jun. 27th, 2014 07:40 pm (UTC)
yes omg i love him sfm! i really miss him. honestly. like i miss yoochun. i know both of them are still there but it's not the same anymore.
i didn't even know that hangeng is part of transformers 4!!! i still have to watch the other movies haha then i can watch the one with him! really want to see him :)
i also still have some of yoochun's dramas to watch, but wow, he's such an amazing and talented actor. i'm impressed. and i'm also curious about jyj's comeback in july! are they actually already allowed to perform in korea or..?

a long time ago i liked all of super junior.
i still really like kangin, eunhyuk and donghae. well, and heechul AND HANGENG. he's still a part, somehow. hanchul was THE OTP. like yunjae, haha. idk much about the rest of them anymore tbh. i don't like shindong, that's for sure. he's quite disrespectful.

dw, same here XD
Jun. 28th, 2014 03:59 am (UTC)
I'd like to think JYJ will be able to perform in Korea. I mean, I'm hoping that SM will stop being a bratty child and just let them perform where they want to, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. I'm definitely excited for their comeback as well! I don't think it's going to be a full album; since they're enlisting soon, I'm thinking it's going to be a mini album or something.

SAME. I can't stand Shindong (and Leeteuk, actually). They're both such assholes.
Aug. 14th, 2014 12:29 pm (UTC)
i heard they were still having troubles? and are not allowed to perform? like wtf...

yeah at least shindong is srsly an asshole, and some things leeteuk said were also really annoying and rude.
Mar. 3rd, 2014 01:23 pm (UTC)
lol I also do not like EXO at first because I thought they are copycats of Super Juniors and DBSK. Haha but I got to like them because of Kai. And I hate sehun too, but if he is with Luhan - I like-love him.

And I am happy you keep on updating! Lovely pic for the #100happydays, will follow you at instageam too ;))

We all love kpop :)
Mar. 6th, 2014 10:07 pm (UTC)
ahh i didn't think like that but i just wasn't interested in yet another random band. but then i saw that they were really talented and deserved my attention and such.
whaaaat you don't like sehun? 0.0 *faints*
wait a sec - i hate sehun too huh? i definitely don't hate sehun Q___Q he's one of my absolute favourites!!!
when i say i hate him i say it just for fun XD i actually mean that i love him a lot lol

what's your ig? ^^

Mar. 13th, 2014 02:38 am (UTC)
haha. I hate him . I do not know, not that - hate-hate but I love him if he i with Luhan <3
Mar. 13th, 2014 02:39 am (UTC)
but my friends are telling me maybe I hate him because I really do like him D__o maybe? lol but I still believe it should always be Sehun-Luhan <3 what do you think? well, haha of course you already answered this. :) HunHan <3

We got into it at around the same time, that's nice! :3
And we own our meeting to Hunhan then, awww :)
Mar. 6th, 2014 10:08 pm (UTC)
yeah that's nice ^^
aww ikr that's great!! thanks, hunhan babies *o*
Mar. 4th, 2014 04:45 pm (UTC)
Oh mein Gott, ich kann mich eigentlich gar nicht erinnern, wie ich zu K-Pop gekommen bin … o_O
Ich hab ein Gedächtnis wie ein Schweizer Käse. :(
Mar. 6th, 2014 10:08 pm (UTC)
ich musste auch sehr sehr lange überlegen ^^
Mar. 6th, 2014 05:58 pm (UTC)
it seems that we both started from big bang, mine first band wasn't big bang, but yeah later I was only listen to them for a very long time xD
ohh I haven't remembered it, I thought you liked warrior at first hahaha
Mar. 6th, 2014 10:09 pm (UTC)
who was your first kpop band?
don't you like big bang anymore?
no, i listened to it when you posted it in your lj and i thought it was really boring lol
Mar. 6th, 2014 11:01 pm (UTC)
first sth form Korea was probably a BoA singer and later at the same time tvxq and big bang, hard to say which was first, I don't remember XD
hmm I liked their old stuffs more to around 2009/2010 year, later it slowly faded away, but to be honest I like their music I just don't keep track on them and since I lost their music on my pc, I really haven't listened to them for a long time, before that I actually listen to all their new songs, at least till 2013.. I think..
hahahaha nice xD on the contrary I loved the warrior era so much *sob sob*

i am happy on the outside, but inside something gnaws at me; some presentiment, anxiety, dreams — or sleeplessness, — melancholy, indifference, — desire for life, and the next instant, desire for death: some kind of sweet peace, some kind of numbness, absent-mindedness; and sometimes definite memories worry me. my mind is sour, bitter, salt; some hideous jumble of feelings shake me.
