My sister showed me SHINee's Replay and 2PM's 10/10 when it came out but I wasn't very interested because I was too invested in my mandopop groups. I was 14. Again & Again caught my attention mostly because I thought Taec's rap sounded really funny and I'd mimic him for the lols. Then I realised that he was greasy/cheesy (in Idol Army and Wild Bunny), funny, fluent in English (sealed the deal tbh), and is basically a huge dork and unashamed of it, which I found charming. I haven't turned back since. I've watched almost everything that he's been in except for his movies and Who Are You (2013).

I was heavily invested in kpop from 2009 to 2012. I stopped because fandom was getting crazy (though I think things are more heated now and I steer clear of fandom in general now) and I had to focus on my A levels. Caught up on a ton of American TV shows and music, so I was only intermittently following news 2013-4. Came back a bit for 2PM's comebacks but was pretty out of the kpop/variety world until I got more Taec content. I was just very into Taec, but also tuned in to a lot of variety shows and I think I can recognise most of the idol title songs from 2009-2012 even the nugus. I still listen to a lot of second gen and ?third gen (2012-2015) groups. After my hiatus though, I reduced the amount of time I spent on kpop due to uni getting super busy and the sheer volume of content from every group. I couldn't keep up and decided only to closely follow a handful (2PM, SHINee, SNSD).

A fun memory of kpop was when I was 15, I went on a school trip with a group of friends to Christmas Island for 8-9days. They were super into Mirotic then and I was still kinda snobbish and refused to follow "big-name" groups, preferring to root for my "underdog group" 2PM. But as they started singing Mirotic on the bus, I caught the bug and all of us ended up learning the lyrics and a little of the dance during the trip. So now, whenever Mirotic plays, I think of those people and the fun we had.

While Taec remains my ultimate fave, Wonho is slowly creeping up the ranks because he's just such a cutie pie <3 I also think that girl groups are dominating my heart this generation (TWICE, WJSN, OMG) and I'm so here for it. For some odd reason, I haven't gotten into YG groups at all. I guess they're just not my style...

Next year is my 10th year since I started listening to kpop. How time flies.
