My sister introduced me to Running Man, saw Girl's Day Minah in one episode and had to check her group out. Ended life as I knew it.

I was interested in Japan because my sister introduced me to anime. I was looking up Japanese skin care videos on Youtube, and in the recommended videos was a top 100 prettiest kpop video. I saw Naeun in there, and the rest is history.

I got into mblaq because they were under his company and beast because they were rivals of mblaq.

i was aware of it and listened to a tiny bit because of BigBang's My Heaven but avoided the genre like the plague until Monsta X's All In and then I got into it proper.

Was interested in Japan and I had a friend who liked kpop and she tried to initiate me and to make a kpop fan but it was a big fail since I only liked some songs. What really got me in was when I found out  After School's Because Of You lol.
