    When Was Your "Stan" Moment?



    So we all love our idol groups and have particular ones we end up "stanning".

    But when did it happen? What was it that clicked in your head that made you decide to stan?

    Share when and how you came to stan your bias groups!

    It was 2007. I had never heard of kpop before. When my classmate showed me a cool video.

    It was SNSD's Into The New World. Just released days prior.

    It was beautiful and exciting.

    I was loving it.

    But the moment that hooked me forever was when I first saw Yoona come onto screen.

    She was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen.

    She captured my heart and I decided right then to get into kpop and in turn, stan SNSD.

    I followed TWICE from their days in Sixteen.

    But I didn't stan right away.

    It wasn't until later, during TWICE's Knock Knock era in early 2017, when I first saw this Cheer Up era fancam of Tzuyu.

    While I had liked Tzuyu during Sixteen, it was this moment when I really fell hard.

    I then had the motivation to learn more about TWICE and decided to stan.

    Mine were all pretty gradual and I kind of started stanning without realizing it. I would just at some point realize that I knew all their names, had 15+ of their songs on my playlist and was watching their variety all the time, and realize that I was stanning them

    Man, this takes me way back.

    The first groups I got really into were SHINee and Big Bang. One of my friends, an avid Shawol, was showing me some videos to try to hook me on Kpop. 'Lucifer' did the trick; as soon as I heard Jonghyun's voice I was sold. That said, Big Bang was the first group I really fell in love with. I was introduced to Kpop right around the 'Fantastic Baby' era, so that was a big influence, but so was G-Dragon's 'Crooked' when it came out. His charisma was irresistibly magnetic, and he became my UB until I discovered Epik High via 'Born Hater.' Once I went down that rabbit hole and learned more about Tablo as a human being, I came to admire him so much that stanning was inevitable.

    I will always remember when I officially declared myself a BABY (B.A.P)
    After seeing their debut stage on Music Bank.

    edit: oops, sorry. I didn't realize we had to go into more detail.

    By then, I was already interested in the group when they had their show on MTV (Ta-dah! It's B.A.P) (I impressed myself when I already knew their names after the 1st episode, lol) , but their music show debut is what totally won me over.
    They didn't have a rookie vibe. Their charisma and stage presence was awesome. They even sung live.

    Truthfully i am not sure I saw rdr then oh then gee and in researching who they were took a week or 2
    but I know for sure after i watched this they were in my heart forever. Which was very weird as i was SURE my heart was a fortress.

    Sorry i could not find the original soshi subss upload.

    9/30 left a hole in my heart. Sometime during party- dumb dumb I found 5 more girls in there.
    I need better walls :)

    Its never one thing with any of the groups. It just gets to the point where I love the music, i buy the cd's and i care about them as people.

    Obv they all have a moment where they grab your attention(this works both for and against groups, that first moment where i decide). But its the rest of the package(Vocals ect) that draws me further in and keeps me long enough to stan.

    It was gradual but I decided to stan after watching I got a boy live. I try to understand the song plus the outfits and choreo ae cool and it is my first time seeing Yoona, a name Ive heard several times, perform. I also found the rest of the girls that day and I started searching info about them. I haven't been that interested in a singer in a long time and they made me feel the joy of fangirling again. Plus I felt they were another kind of girl group.

    Rinse and repeat and the process was similar with all my faves from the 2nd gen.

    The group's I've stanned since debut were a matter of love at first sight more or less.

    Others like Mamamoo and EXO was a song what made me felt it was time to give them a chance.

    i was curious about k-pop and i searched the keyword 'k-pop' up. the first video that caught my eye was bts's 'not today'.
    i really liked it, so after a few more hours of browsing, i came across their 'dope' mv. when yoongi had his section of the video, my eyes were like.,,, ''wow, this guy is so cool,, and his rapping is like top notch tf''
    so um
    without realising it what a bias was, he became my bias
    it's been a long time now and i sTILL HAVEN'T SWITCHED W00
    i stay loyal :')))
    except hoseok

    but man, since i tend to focus on bts's songs that don't have mvs and/or are less popular, watching & listening to dope brings back happy memories ,, help

    Hm... a lofty task, since Big Bang has been around for twelve years! They've got a huge discography full of diverse, awesome music -- and narrowing it down to a brief introduction is a bit tricky. I'll give it a shot, though! I've picked out five songs which express some of the different sides of Big Bang; they're listed below. All of them are very "mainstream;" I've stuck to the famous hits since a primer is what we're looking for. If you like what you hear, there's so much more out there!
    Hope this is helpful! Picking a handful of songs to represent Big Bang is an outrageously difficult task, but I think these make a decent profile on the whole :) They're my favorite idol group so hopefully you'll find at least something you like!

    i began looking into kpop with rm's mixtape. then i ended up stanning bts late 2015.
    i noticed bap's music. i was pulled in by one shot, and was impressed with the diversity of their songs.
    i heard a lot of talk about zico as a rapper. i fell in love with his mixtape. i didn't actually check out block b until a few weeks earlier.

    so yeah thats how i stanned bts, bap, and block b :)

    I don't know if I remember that to be honest. I just know that while I was sixteen or so my friend showed me 'Fantastic Baby'. By then it was so weird for me 'cause these hairstyles were too much for me and the language made my head ache. At that time I knew who PSY is already but his MV was just funny for me and like everyone else I thought all kpop songs were like this. So when I saw Big Bang I was so schocked and weirded out. But I came to love that song and the band itself after some time. It was probably thanks to G-Dragon eyes that made me love him so much and then the next thing I know I'm stanning the whole group.
    In EXO case it looked quite different. I actually slept on them in 2014 even tho my friends were really hyped for them. But then they were hyped for any kpop group so why should I care? In december I found that funny meme with Kris and I was so curious I wanted to know more about the guy. Then I found 'EXO showtime'. I was so in love with the guy, you can only imagine my heartbreak when I found out he's no longer in the group. But I still loved him and started to like the rest of the boys too. And to this day I love them just as much as I did back then.

    iKON: I watched then on WIN and even though it was obvious that Team A would win, I still supported Team B. I truly began my stan journey when Hanbin ran away in the middle of practicing for Basket case and even though everyone was worried for the competition and were at risk for elimination, their first concern was for him and if he was okay. and Hanbin won my heart when he was the one having the mental breakdown but he was more worried for Yunhyeong than himself. It was obvious how talented they were but they won my heart because of how much they care for each other.
