Day 1: What Got you into Kpop...
Alright... Story time!
I've always been fascinated with dance, so one day back in August of 2013, I looked up the dance for Cruisin' for a Bruisin' from Disney's Teen Beach Movie on YouTube.
After I was done watching that I looked a the related videos on the side and one of the first ones was a video of a dance practice.
The dance practice video was labeled "We Are Bulletproof Pt.2 dance practice". I decided it looked interesting, so I clicked on it(and I'm so glad I did!) To my surprise, they weren't speaking English, but it was ok because I was there for the dancing in the first place. I honestly wasn't sure if the people in the video were the original singers or dancers for the song, since it was definitely lip-syncing. But I decided it was great anyway.
I loved this group as a whole, but one person in particular caught my eye. This person in the "Young America" shirt. I honestly wasn't sure if the person was a guy or a girl at first, since they were kind of far away. But I never assumed a gender, because I didn't want to be wrong.
I watched the video a few times, and then fell asleep. The next night, I asked my friend(who was already a Kpop fan) if she knew of BTS, and if it was a kpop group. She told me it was and helped me learn their names, even though she was somewhat new to them too.
She also gave me a list of other bands and songs to listen to. I remember her sending me EXO-Wolf as one of the songs(she listed songs for each group, I just don't remember the rest) XD and a of the bands she listed were Boyfriend, A-Prince, G-Dragon/Big Bang(her favorite), 2NE1 and so many more.
I watched almost all of them, but before I got to the last 5-10 the message deleted, but she sent me like 50 bands and songs like a good kpopper XD
So long story short, BTS got me into Kpop, Jimin made me stay, and my friend helped me along the way.
Thank you for reading my card :)
