    I've been into SJ during my childhood since my brother is obsessed with it and then lost interest, and I forgot about kpop and mainly focused on western pop music

    I've reunite with kpop when blackpink released PWF, which really captivated me and once again brought me into the wonderful world of kpop :D:D

    I got in to super junior years ago(maybe 2009 ish) and I never liked anyone else until Exo. Then I fully got into kpop then.

    It was nearly 11 years ago.

    I was a young lad of 18.

    Wet behind the ears and new to the world.

    There I was in class being studious when my Korean classmate tapped me on the shoulder.

    "Hey Eman do you know Girls Generation?"

    "Girls who?" I asked confused.

    She pointed to her laptop and there was a video playing.

    Into the New World played before me.

    I watched bewildered yet intrigued.

    However, not quite convinced, I looked back at my friend as if to say "so what?"

    She pointed back and said... "just watch".

    Then suddenly a young girl came on screen.

    I stammered.... "Who.... who is that?!"

    "Oh that's Yoona. The visual."

    "Yoona." I softly declared as if to myself.

    It was love at first sight.

    Henceforth I became a Sone and Yoona fanboy.

    The rest was history.

    I would always see the idols(specifically bts) on my twitter, and one day i randomly decided to watch one video, which led me to watching another and so forth. Needless to say I stan bts, but I've also been jamming to Jay Park, DPR Live, and Dean :')
    also kris wu but idk if he'd be considered as an idol (would he?)

    In 2011 was my first I was like 11 and my friend showed me (We were mocking just Bieber song boyfriend) and searched boyfriend and then It came up with boyfriend Korean Band we saw the video made fun of it but didn't get into K pop.Then obviously gang style in 2012 and I randomly stumbled upon B.A.P but didn't get into it.Finally in late 2016-early 2017 I got in.I saw XXX movie and Kris was in it.I searched him on youtube saw his song July and that was lit and went Into the comments and everyone was talking about exo and I was like what the hell is a Exo?the video of exo monster was on side and I clicked it AND THAT WAS WHEN MY FUCKING LIFE TOOK A 360 FOR THE GOOD.THAT BOP MADE ME PLUNGE INTO KPOP FOR GOOD.Later I saw bts coming in non kpop related stuff and I checked Blood Sweat Tears and yeah that was it THAT WAS THE FINAL BLOW I WAS K-POP TRASH FOR GOOD AFTER THAT.btw K-Pop has really improved my life in general I went from Insecure to just stop giving a shit about anyone and went from a Dumb average student to one of the toppers of the class and became a straight A student.Even got accepted to world top 20 Unis and this is literally all thanks to K-Pop since the grades I get now I never would've thought 2 years ago I will ever score so high and the ironic thing is my study time is literally 10% of what it used to be since I waste so Much time watching K-Pop yet my grades pretty much skyrocketed.

    I was in a group chat in the anime Amino about 7 months ago and one day an ARMY came and spammed the chat with BTS pics/MV’s. Everyone else in the chat was annoyed and reported the ARMY a million times each but I was intrigued. One day, I was listening to music with a friend and decided to play BS&T as a joke since it the only BTS song I remembered. The song was admittedly catchy, and it got stuck in my head, and thus I was dragged down the K-pop rabbit hole.

    Fan since the 90s, quit around 2009. Few years ago, found a group called EXO on Spotify, now back into the kpop scene.

    I was listening to anime music on YT then snsd was in my recommendations and i listened to a song of them but i didnt really know what to think of it apart that it was catchy, but since it was a Japanese song i didnt know they were a korean group but i didnt look further into it and was just like “oh cool”

    Then a little later my friend was already kpop trash so when i started talking to her again she made me check out some gg’s and I immediately just loved it, i was kinda confused but i loved it. I was really captivated by the music, concepts and choreo’s. Since then i just kept falling deeper and deeper into the kpop hole as I was discovering more groups.
