    How does it make you feel?
    How obsessed are you?
    Which idols mean a lot to you?
    Do you think you'll ever quit kpop?
    To me it's really important. Overall, it's a way for me to escape from real life. My ultimate bias and bias group? Mean too much to me, their music has really helped me. Especially Taeyeon, her music gives me strength to go on despite what I've faced in my life. After feeling so empty for so long no matter what I listened to or did, I'm so glad I found a vocalist whose voice makes me feel something, even if it's pain. I've never been one to like celebrities. I think I might quit kpop but that's a long way away, I'm still young and really, too interested to quit.
    Won't quit listening to my bias group and ultimate bias though

    Entertainment for me, I'm not sure but I might quit Kpop when I'm 30 but I'm 19 right now so that's a long way. I would rate my addiction to Kpop about a 7 or 8

    When I first got into K Pop in 2011 it was a way of forgetting the depression and shit that I was going through. It was like an escape for me to this new world where I wasn't judged and I could just forget everything.
    Even to this day if I am having a bit of a shit day at work or something I will put some K Pop on to just escape for a short while.
    That is why SNSD means the world to me and why I will always defend and support them. Because without their years of sacrifice and hard work I wouldn't of discovered them and who knows what state of mind I would be in today.

    And will I ever leave K Pop? Who knows. Maybe. But then I've never stopped listening to Blink 182 or Eminem.

    It used to mean a lot to me but now it's honestly only a way to fight boredom anymore.

    I started looking into it because I was curious and wanted more from Korean entertainment than k-dramas. It eventually became a way to continue my fangirling ways. Now is another source of entertainment that I have added to my regular musical intake. I'd say I'm more invested here than in Western music because here I actually follow groups and artists whereas in Western music I just take whatever I like. Will I stop listening to it? Who knows? I still listen to the music I used to listen while growing up.

    Kind of a hobby ? I've been into it for too long to really have that much of an emotional attachment. It's just music with activities attached to it that are useful when I'm bored so it's entertainment for me.

    Literally just music and pretty faces (and entertainment but I don't watch a lot of variety shows anymore)
    When I first got into kpop in early 2014 I was really into Exo but then all the shit happened and it kinda made me feel sad then I started stanning Bap but there was the lawsuit and it also made me feel sad (plus 2014 was just a really bad year for me) so I just stopped getting too "attached" to any group. Now it's just like any kind of music to me, but more fun and with cool music videos.

    How does it make you feel?
    I don't necessarily 'feel' a lot from it, it's just an interest, I don't have an emotional connection to KPOP
    How obsessed are you?
    Pretty obsessed since I got into Kdramas too, they're really good and interesting.
    Which idols mean a lot to you?
    Not many, all of blackpink, Jaebum (Park & Im), Jin, Rapmon
    Do you think you'll ever quit kpop?
    Probably, it's more of a hobby, I get bored of groups easily if they don't manage to put out good content, it depends on the path KPOP takes. I will never quit kdramas though, I'm (southern) Asian and watch Asian dramas anyway.

    Well kpop and by extension kdramas pretty much take up most of my "entertainment" time. So it's a nice relaxing hobby for me. A nice escape.

    How does it make you feel?

    - Happy.
    How obsessed are you?
    - Not really obsessed. More a diversion. I do a lot of other things.
    Which idols mean a lot to you?
    - I talk a lot about Yoona I guess. If she were to get in a car crash, I'd probably legit cry like those people did when Princess Diana died. Lol. Or maybe not who knows. I like her a lot though.
    Do you think you'll ever quit kpop?
    - I don't know. Can't predict the future.

    :)
