I first got into kpop because of Finebros kpop reaction vids. Before that I never knew such a thing existed. At first I didn't take it seriously but then i got sucked in

i somehow clicked on snsd's mr mr on youtube. i couldn't stop repeating the song, mostly because i never thought kpop songs could sound like that.

this:

 

led me to eventually look up BoA's music because I loved her singing so much, found out she was Korean and not Japanese as I had initially thought, and proceeded to listen to her k-pop tracks (including the Korean version of 'Every Heart'). Though it wasn't until 2010 that I began to listen to other kpop artists besides BoA.

SNSD's gee. But I only cared about SNSD and kind of casually at that.

Followed red velvets release but didn't do anything besides that.

Beginning of college I listened to some songs by girls day, apink, SNSD, and iu and kind of followed their releases.

I got the bug hard after watching running mans episode with yerin from gfriend. I heard me gustas tu and soon after really enjoying that saw their viral video and fell hard. They were my first stan. And even though they aren't my fave anymore, they'll always hold a special place in my heart. But since then I've followed obsessively and fallen in love with the new gen girl groups

8 years ago, I had a friend who was amazing at drawing. She was drawing a kpop idol and she told me it was a member of SNSD. She told me a bit about Girls Generation and then I checked them out myself. The first song I listened to was Oh! by SNSD. They were the first group I found out about before I learned other groups like Big Bang, 2NE1, Super Junior, etc.

I got into kpop back in 2010 when I was deployed to the middle east for the US Army. I came across Sistar when I was on leave in Germany and have been a fan ever since

I have very faint memories of the Wonder Girls back in 2008/08. There's a really specific picture of them that I remember seeing everywhere, I'm 100% sure of that. However, I consider Big Bang to be my 'true' introduction to Kpop because I can't be sure that I actually listened to WG. I was looking specifically for Japanese groups, but I got a bunch of Kpop recommendations instead so I eventually decided to listen to it and now I'm here.
