By newer let's if you became a kpop fan 2016 or later. Which includes myself btw. 1. What groups had you heard about prior to becoming a kpop fan? 2. Were there any groups you're surprised you hadn't heard about prior to becoming a kpop fan? 3. Was there a group or song that ignited your interest into kpop? For me: From the 2nd gen I had heard of SNSD and 2NE1. I even followed a couple f(x) title tracks back in the day. Had never heard of Wonder Girls until 2017...actually I still only know of 1 WG song. I'm a mess lmao. From the 3rd gen: I had actually heard of Red Velvet first. Ice Cream Cake had a lot of buzz in my tumblr community (and they almost never talked kpop). Russian Roulette also got a lot of buzz. Who knew they'd be my ult bias 2 years later lolol. The one I'm surprised I had never heard about is Twice. I missed a whole Cheer Up and TT lol. First time hearing of them was when Likey came out actually. Shocking I know... also GFriend. I missed all of Me Gustas Tu. I actually didn't know anything about them until earlier this year. I had a lot of catching up to do lolol. The song that started my serious kpop interest was 7th Sense, but I might actually credit Boombayah for really igniting my interest.
