How did you get into KPOP?

Post  mcuraming on January 2nd 2011, 2:28 pm

Heyy! Mark here!
I just wanted to know how you guys got into kpop!

For me it was early 2009 I think. My cousin showed me the Lollipop MV and I immediately fell for kpop. X.X I listened to Lollipop nonstop after that. XD I really loved Big Bang and 2NE1 in the video and that's how I became YG biased! <3

That led me to like other groups too, like 2PM,f(x), SHINee, Wonder Girls, and many many many more.

SO, how did you get into KPOP? Leave your stories below!! ^^

Ohh.

Post  22itsyu13 on January 2nd 2011, 2:32 pm

Okay, that's probably why everyone has a certain bias lol ^^
Summer of 2009? My friend recommended Super Junior to me in China (she lives in the US with me, but yeah) so I bought their album. I was into CPop back then (JAY CHOU! JJ LIN!), but I really liked Reset ^^ so I started asking my friend more and lol she was obsessed.

Re: How did you get into KPOP?

Post  E.Levin on January 2nd 2011, 4:39 pm

lol, i remember how i got into kpop so exactly

so it was like mid August of 2010, so i'm pretty new kinda xD
anyways, so i was about to go to sleep, laying on my bed and then suddenly my sister said, "Anna come here !! you have to watch this !!"
i knew it had something to do with kpop (and at that time i was kinda anti - kpop) but i got up and went over to watch it anyways (thank goodness i did, everything happens for a reason right? :D)
so i went over to watch it and it was SHINee - Lucifer MV !!! it was so captivating, since i am catholic, i fell in love with the title and the song, because i thought the title, "Lucifer" was interesting xD
and then i continued watching it and fell in love with their dancing, they were so good !!
and especially taeminnine !! xD the guy in the red pants in the middle was HOT !! LOL
so my sister told me that they were SHINee and i was like, "SHINee!?!?!? The one who sang replay and ring ding dong?!?!!?"
and then she was like yea, and i was so dumbfounded because back in 2008 and 2009 my friends always talked about those songs, and i was like, who would name a song ring ding dong?? that's stupid and it reminds of a doorbell. ><
then i got into SHINee and then i understood the lyrics and all the misunderstandings went away.
there was this one time in 2008 where my friends were talking about replay and i thought they were talking about Sean Kingstons Replay LOL xD they were like noooo . . . O.o

lol, well this is a story that has been told many times over xD
it's so long >< haha, i'm always ranting on and on and on and on . . . . . . . . .

Soo.. My story is kind long since it wasn't just that I watch one MV and I fell for Kpop.
Everything start when I was bored in home and it was 9.00PM. My sister was watching tv so I start watching it too. And Thats how I watch my first episode of anime ever. It was Chobits. Soo I start watching it on internet and then more really good animes (I looove Ghost Hunt coz Nary-chan i soooo great!). I was like: OMG! I love Japan! I want to go to Japan and everything is soo kawaii! haha I was soo stupid back then. Soo one day I was searching in the google for more animes and I end up on love-drama page. I start to watch japanesse dramas and while I was looking what drama I should watch next I found korean movie '200 Pounds Beauty'. I start to watch it and I thought that this one is really good and main guy in this is sooo hot! (but his old xD ). Anyways I still thought that this language is stupid and weird but since Korean dramas are more romantic then Japanesse I start to watch more. Oooo and 2nd thread: I was watching videos in youtube and I accidentally found BoA - Energetic MV and I fell in love just like that xD Coz she was soo american and I had obsession about U.S.A. She was my first Korean singer, but I didn't really like any of her song besides her english album. Now I love all her songs xD But back to dramas. I start to watch 'You're Beautiful' and here it is: My first true Korean love: Lee Hongki. My friends was soo angry at me coz I non stop talk about 'how Jeremmy is cute', 'How he is stupid but cute', 'How he is talented, stupid and cute'. Soo I found out that Jeremmy is Lee Hongki and that he is vocalist in F.T. Island. And their 'I hope' is my first Korean MV in Korean language. And next was like with everyone. I start love Korea and kpop. When I was watching Big Bang & 2NE1 - Lollipop (I know that time 2NE1 but I didn't know Big Bang) I was like 'WOW This guy in pink is sooo cute!' And yep here is my best crash in kpop... G DRAGON!
Soo THE END Wink

Re: How did you get into KPOP?

Post  lualualuax3 on January 2nd 2011, 6:12 pm

Heh. My story is somewhat long too...but i'll shorten it a bit xD
I'll start in 2nd grade (lol, yes, second grade.) At that time I was really interested in C-pop/Taiwanese-pop (Jolin Tsai and S.H.E anyone? ^^) Haha, I don't even know how I discovered it, but there you have it--my first exposure to Asian pop. Now, fast forward to around a year-ish later. My brother was watching Naruto (RASENGAN.) and I just happened to glance over his shoulder in time for the OTS. Ah..I still remember it. Season 9 OTS. It's called YURA YURA by Hearts Grow. If you get the chance, listen to it. It's such a sweet sounding song Smile. From there I fel in LOVE with J-pop (and I still love it to this day xD). From there I was more exposed to Asian pop. That's when I also started to watch anime hehe. Fast forward 2 more years and Charice Pempengco gets popular (Winter of 2008 btw). Haha, if you're Filipino like me, it'd be kinda difficult to NOT know who she was xD. Now, I wrote this in my bio, but before Charice Pempengco got into American Industry or was a guest in the Oprah show, she was a guest to StarKing. And obviously, since it was a Korean variety show, there were Korean artists there. In that episode a couple members of Super Junior were in the chairs watching Charice. After watching the episode I searched up a SuJu song and the first video that popped up was their song Haengbok (Happiness).
Well, I think you can imagine what happens next after that, since I'm here in this Entertainment and all, so I won't write about the rest.
But there you have it xD.

Re: How did you get into KPOP?

Post  Nisyaz on January 3rd 2011, 5:51 am

Mine is long. Like really long.

I had absolutely no interest in Kpop at first. Then came BOF. Then I was interested in the SoEul couple. Then I quit that. Okay end of that.

AHAHA.

Okay so thenn one day around August 23rd, I was totally hyper and felt like running around the house. I went inside the computer room (that time I haven't got my laptop ♥ yet soo) and my sister was playing it. I bugged her then became all nosy and looked at what she was opening.
It was an article of SM Entertainment's new girl group, (IDK WHAT IS SMENTERTAINMENT BACK THEN) So I ignored that, and then scrolled down, and saw like these five girls. And something happened and I was like. Interested. IDK BUT It's like when you see something you feel like.. attracted to, and you feel like YOU WANT IT.

SO I tried to sneak into the computer's face. But as usual, my sister won't allow that. She somehow hates it when I'm trying to read the same thing she's reading at the same time and place. So I like.. looked at the URL and copied that into my head before she closes the tab and shoved me out of the room.

So then I opened the laptop in my mother's room and typed that in and I saw.. f(x) . I was totally attracted by this one member who had this one style like.. Weird puffy hairstyle, and I opened hers. Then I saw.. AHH HER NAME IS VICTORIA AND I'LL BE TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH HER FOR THE NEXT ETERNITY. Then I opened the others and I got totally hooked.

La Cha Ta made me screamed out of my sister's head and she told me to shut up. But I didn't.
But I didn't know about forums and collabs back then.
Only after another 6 months I figured about the forums, the subs, the everything.

AND NOW I'M IN FOR F(X) <3 COMEBACK GIRLS.

Ohh and I've just figured out about SHINee. But STILL f(x) NUMBAH ONE.
Figured out abt otherss because I opened AKP for recent news of f(x).. and etc.

:DD

Post  purplecookiedough on January 3rd 2011, 4:56 pm

mine's short ><
i've known kpop ever since i went home from the hospital where i was born.
when i could actually sing, talk, dance, etc, i was into dbsk. [yunho <3].. i'm really sad about the whole breaking up thing Sad.. they were my first obsession..
i liked suju next, but they had too many members so i gave up on them. (SORRY~)
then, it was big bang [TOP<33].. i liked "we belong together" "as if nothing is wrong" and "together forever" the most. i actually knew them before they got popular, because my dad is like.. kpop stalker. LOOOL.. jk. during that time, he was part of this korean website for downloading music, videos, pics, all that stuff. and he showed me it.. i was like.. EWW. THEY SUCK. but then i started liking it because my brother kept blastiing it from his room x]
now, i'm a shinee obsessed girl, ever since replay<3 i liked jonghyun even before i knew who the members were o_O.. LOOL. i was like, HEY THAT GUYS VOICE AND FACE IS HOT<3
i'm also digging 2ne1's music VERY MUCH<3 i love the whole fierceness thing.. i'm not really into snsd type of songs (SORRY TO ANY FANS~).. snsd is talented, just not my style.

wow, i thought this would be short -___-.. well anyways, that's my story<3
