    ...Looking back on it, makes you cringe a lot? Or maybe just something you thought for a long time? I used to constantly forget that EXO was under SM Entertainment and thought they were just some vigilante group who just produced their own songs. Then for awhile I thought they were under JYP Entertainment until I looked it up :/

    To be fair, I'm not that close to EXO so I don't even watch their official MV's. I just listen to the audio once I hear a new song has come out and occasionally I'll watch an MV. Other than that I keep my distance from the whole group.

    Pre-teen me: "Kpop fans are the best people ever, I love them!"
    :rolleyes:

    It's a complete 180 now, lol

    I also used to think that TS was a great company to B.A.P because of how well I thought they treated the boys and how much they used to promote them.
    Again, complete 180 now.

    I thought Big Bang was the best group because they produced their own music, and nobody could come even close to matching them. That has definitely changed. :rolleyes: I also though the best artists were all from YG and that YG was some sort of paradise.
    It isn't cringey, but I thought Monsta X debuted in 2012 along with BAP and Nu'est for a very long time. I was shocked when I found out they actually debuted in 2015.

    I thought EXO was a boring group I would never listen to.

    i used to think everyone in kpop is straight and when they kiss and touch each other, they are just being friends or joking around. now when i remember that, i cringe.

    also, i cringe at how i took kpop and showbiz at face value. deception and Lying and befooling are Kpop's other names. Everything is a lie. Everything.

    My exo biases were tao and kris and so after they left I thought why should I even stan exo anymore? (plus I kind of refused to believe they left for some time) so Im a bit sad that I missed a couple of years of fangirling over exo but Im glad Im back and now stanning them for real. Btw I got to see exo recently in dubai so now I can die without regrets woohoooo

    Leaving comments about an idol's physical appearance/a specific feature of theirs and saying that I didn't like it/it looks weird etc. etc.

    I cringe at that now looking back, I wouldn't have said those sorts of things to someone in person so why did saying it on the internet make it acceptable? Ugh, I should have known better and I try not to participate in conversations involving this type of stuff.

    Uh, there were so many...
    Once I watched One Shot and even though I liked the song, the MV gave me the impression that they were just another tryhard boygroup, so I dismissed them.
    When I started to get into BAP, Yongguk was on hiatus. I watched Skydive and was amazed by Jongup, but because he played the psycho I somehow thought he was Yongguk and he was suffering from anxiety disorder.
    Stupid, stupid me...
