I guess I should formally introduce myself. My name is Melon, a Shawol since debut. My journey into Kpop started when a Chinese student left two BoA albums behind for anyone to take. As a huge fan of Jpop/rock of course I snagged them up. The Japanese Love & Honesty and the Korean My Name. this would have been around 2006 or 7. From there on I started to listen to BoA regularly. The next year at the same school a bunch of Korean students were gathered around a laptop. What I saw basically changed my life forever. A group of good looking boys in what I can only describe as prime fashion for the time. I will never forget that intro. Replay by SHINee. That song is what really through me into the vortex as I started to follow them and try to listen to them however I could in an age where streaming wasn't one of the usual methods. I had borrowed their first album and ripped it to my computer for my iPod nano as well as a few other albums like TVXQ and Super Junior. Later on I found myself just emersed in this world. 2NE1 changed my life as CL is the ultimate girl crush for me. I am 27, have two beautiful boys who can sing most of the Kpop songs I listen to, albiet very not the correct lyrics. I also Stan Twice, Mamamoo, Suju, Everglow, GG, Seventeen and Super M. I tend to like SM groups more than YG, from a visual and vocal standpoint. I am a listener to BTS, but I'm not quite sure I can call myself a full ARMY. I know a lot about them and listen to everything they've done. RM is my bias.
