    Well, I kinda slept on Gfriend and Exid as most of the people, but with BtoB and Momoland, I finally know how does it feel:yesr:

    With BtoB it was actually so relieving. Cause, they've debuted in killer year 2012 and were behind everyone, Exo, Nuest, Bap, 100%. And then they had few disappointing comebacks and at some point I thought they were done:waterr:

    Hope April is my next breakthrough experience:lover1:

    I stanned NU'EST(my first group) back in July 2016, and the fandom was so tiny. The discord server had no more than 15 people and a bot. Most of their MVs had a handful thousand views.
    Now they're so insanely popular. I'm proud, but I'm also kinda sad that the fandom isn't as close as it used to be.

    I kinda mean like total breakthroughs, from no one to stars. SM groups don't qualify for that.
    But thanks for your comments)

    mhh i saw alot of breaktroughs. I am happy for example to see how far Exid has come. I remember when I watched 5mbc ( a show for Block B) where they listen to Everynight. The boys were so in love and it made me glad to see them listing to these girls .
    but what i kinda regret is not getting into infinite sooner. Like I got into them when they started sesame player ( huge MBLAQ fan so when news got out someone other will do S2 i wanted to give them a chance an watch the first ep at least). I just fell in love with thier personalities at first and needed to check the mv's asap. now they are one of my top groups.

    I didn't forget them. The reason I didn't mention them cause in 2012 they also had weak debut BtoB alike, even weaker. Their breakthrough came after On and On concept change.

    Only Red Velvet and Blackpink. Oh my girl is rising in popularity but I can't speak of a breakthrough yet. My other groups either I didn't know them when they broke through and in the case of EXO I was sleeping on them

    No they were not. BIG BANG was a nugu who did not do well till LIES. SHINee did not even knew they were debuting and the company did not even give info till a week before it, and they did not get reconized in korea till love like oxygen and internationally with lucifer. WINNER Had a very hard time and they make is with Really really. TVXQ were normal idols till, they make it big as well with rising sun,and not talking about japan how thry started ftom 0 and know being consuderate Jpop.

    That and idol come from a big company does not automatically means they make it instantly, and did not happen with the majority I mentioned.

    Yes! I began following Mamamoo before their debut, became a fan after seeing their debut stage (them vocals!) and saw them go from unknown and underrated to very succesful and well-known!! I'm so proud of them, they've deserved it!! :D

    I was also there when EXO debuted, became a fan and saw them become the legends they still are!

    I've had the privilege of seeing breakthroughs for GOT7 (I was there since Girls Girls Girls lol), VIXX (I started was OBSESSED with the Hyde dance practice) and even BTS (I remember watching the livestream of their showcase for 2 Kool 4 Skool on 1theK).

    I have also been following NCT since their first NCT U song The 7th Sense and even their V Live show with Heechul and Red Velvet all the way back to their Happiness Days.

    I have to admit I haven't really been hardcore fans of any of the groups I mentioned (other than BTS lol) but I have watched their title song MVs and checked out their albums so I have been able to see the growth of their music and their fans!

    But TVXQ does count in that. They did start from the bottom along with BoA (especially in Japan, they are the ones that made it possible for other groups to go there)

    But name them all, i've seen them all have their breakthrough. Been there for so long
