    I was already into Jpop and Jrock at the time, so the transition was smooth lol Like many people here, my introduction to kpop was BoA. I was following a lot of anime blogs at the time (I was maybe 13 or 14). One of them was playing Girls On Top by BoA and I fell in love with it. I became a hardcore BoA fan after that lol However, what made me actually look for other kpop groups was Wonder Girl's Tell Me. People mentioned it a lot in the MMOs I played so I decided to watch the MV, which was hilarious. That choreo got me addicted to kpop. Then I found DBSK's Mirotic right after that and I fell in the marvellous world of kpop male groups... I mostly listened casually though, I wasn't really into fandoms or anything and I was completely clueless about the kpop culture (I was more of a Jpop/Jrock girl) until I found Block B muuuch later.

    It was in 2012 , I guess.I loved watching anime and I really liked the opening songs and as I was exploring YouTube for more songs , I came across SNSD's ITNW and then I was hooked. But then I completely forgot about them (Because that was a turbulent time for me) . And then in 2015 , I came across Nine Muses' s Sleepless Nights , and then G-Friend's Glass Bead and then BTS's Run or Save Me(Not exactly sure which one I listened to first) and so on and so forth. And now I'm hooked.

    I fell asleep on the couch late one Friday night and woke up during a repeat of SBS PopAsia's video show. Waking up to see Jaejoong singing Just Another Girl was interesting enough, but when they followed up a few songs later with Bigbang and Haru Haru, and Block B's Very Good, I was hooked.

    i'd gotten sucked into jpop by way of kingdom hearts/utada hikaru and stayed there. then, boa released key of heart in 06 - this was the beginning. despite the song struggling commercially in japan upon it's release i quite liked it.

    i'd always known boa was korean, but i never really cared to delve deeper into the mainstream kpop market. i was already a fan of indie korean artists like clazziquai, humming urban stereo and casker because they sounded a lot like neo-shibuya kei.

    in the korean version of key of heart there was donghae, i went searching and found super junior. though almost a year late, i watched their mvs for miracle and u. it was my first taste of mainstream korean pop.

    i would go on to support gg like the now disbanded rainbow (rainnous4lyfe) and i remember brown eyed girls dropping my style. i was also a big fan of lee hyori (my korean namie) and i survived the h-logic scandal lawl.

    i stuck around until about 2012 then i decided i'd had my fill. now, i'm back - literally half a decade later.

    Dirty fanfiction.

    My little sister was into Kpop first, and I caught her reading smut on AFF. I told her she wasn't allowed to read anymore, but then...

    Well..
    I decided to read a little for...
    -clears throat-
    Research purposes...

    And it was a JongKey fic, I don't even remember the name of it now.
    But it was good.
    And dirty.
    But still good.
    I asked her about these JongKey people, and went to check out a couple of MVs. SHINee stole my heart, just as Kibum did!

    Jan 2009 - Present. I still have the same UB group, and still the same bias.

    I hadn't heard it, so I'm glad you shared.

    Your daughter sounds wise beyond her years.

    Sounds like quite the journey.

    Even if it took you awhile to get here. All that matters is that you made it.
