I was tagged by @KatieRussel to make a card on the groups that I'm thankful for. I have 3 groups that really helped me out this year so I thought why not make this card..
Here we gooooo
1. EXO (Zhang Yixing tooo)
So I got Into kpop sometime around the time promotions for Call Me Baby were going on. I was minding my own business on Tumblr when on of the people I followed kept rebloging kpop stuff & I kept seeing EXO everywhere so I got curious & clicked a link that was attached to the post & it took me to the comeback stage of Call Me Baby & at first I was like ehh okay but then I got into it I was like YAA! & then I saw Zhang Yixing with his black hair & I swear to god I've never screamed that loud in my life (Except maybe for Seventeen). Then I saw EXO showtime (I think thats what Its called)
I fell for those 12 guys individually & as a whole. I was so sad when Tao left like I could only imagine how EXO-Ls that had been in the fandom longer than me felt
But then I found out about Zhang Yixing being in Go Fighting & I fell so much more in love with him like I saw how caring he was towards every single person.
But at that time I was really going thru some stuff & I was depressed & they helped to distract me for a while & I really welcomed that distraction since my other distraction was to read but it wasn't really keeping me occupied anymore. (SOORRY I HAD TO ADDD THOSE GIVES OF LAY IN GO FIGHTING ITS SO CUTTEE)
I found BTS when I was looking up other videos of EXO. Like at first I was like eh I don't know about this but I ended up clicking the video it was Boys In Luv & omfg from the first second I was captivated! I was in class tho so I tried so hard not to scream. But after that video I found so many others I think I started watching BTSbombs a week later & I learned their names pretty quick too. But BTS helped me let go of some of my shyness. I don't know how or when it happened but I was able to do things I was so nervous to do before. Maybe because I thought about them a lot I fotgot to get nervous?? lol
My friend told me to go listen to this new group that had just debuted & I was like okay why not but then she told me they were all so young so I was a bit hesitant but I listened to Adore U anyways. I TRIED SO HARD TO NOT LIKE THEM SOO HARD! but It didn't work. When Mansae came out I was slayed & forever A Monteen or whatever the hell they decide to call their fandom lol. Then I started to watch Project17 & I found myself in an emotional roller coaster. Whenever they were happy I was happy, when they cried I cried 10x worse.
Oh gawd this group I swear they just made my standards on guys go wayy up, Not just on looks. They are so respectful for a group of young guys like them & the way they care about their families just warmed my heart. But I love watching them(predebute or not) whenever I feel down or I'm having a hard day. They just help brighten my day,
(Btw that second gif is the first I've ever done im kinda proud lol)
What groups are you thankful for??
