What happened after I found BTS:
• got back into kpop • found 1st bias • made bias list • learned a full choreo & many other choruses • listened to more groups • variety show marathons • joined social media to support groups • wrecked bias list tons of times • learned how to make edits • downloaded tons of photo apps • learned how to gif • made memes/edits on the bus ride home • ordered 1st kpop merch • ordered 1st kpop album • met kpop acquaintances irl • got back into kdramas • ruined sleep schedule (& GPA a little bit)
TL;DR: A LOT has happened xD
But I want to back track to when I first found these dorks... ***Sorry if you get offended!!
I focused on the dance at first.
I watched their dance practice after searching for "kpop dance practice" on YouTube (just out of the blue). I didn't look at the boys at all because the dance just HAD me. ESPECIALLY the head-bobbing part ♡
First time watching the Dope MV: the 2 people who caught my eye were Jimin and Jungkook.
Ofc I didn't know who anyone was so I went by hairstyles lol. Before he was Jimin, he was Ketchup xD Again, I mostly focused on the dance.
If it wasn't V, it would've been Jungkook.
*first couple of pics I ever downloaded Someone made a comment about V having a baby face and the voice of a 30-year-old smoker. Intrigued, I looked for this V person and dove into identifying all of the members. I focused on V after someone said he was her bias (I still didn't fully understand the bias concept so I just stuck with V) but if I hadn't picked V, I would have gone with Jungkook. Hairstyles are usually what get my attention and I loved his as soon as I watched the Dope MV for the first time. Plus, something about him was pulling me towards him...
I didn't realize Jin was part of the group.
*more of the first pics I downloaded Sorry, Jin-oppa... When I first saw the above pic, only really knowing by then (I think) who Jungkook, V, and probably Jimin were, I thought Jin was some guest or friend. Plus, me still being kinda close-minded, I was a bit turned off by him in the 2nd pic because of what his gesture means to certain (pervy) people in the States...
I confused Jin and J-hope.
It just got worse for Jin ig :( They just looked so similar to me >.> Now, I can't really see how I could've made that mistake.
I blankly acknowledged Suga and Rap Monster.
I saw Rap Monster and thought, "oh, he looks cool". And that was it. Wth, brain. I barely glanced at Suga... Like, I knew he was there but he didn't stick out to me at all... But as I dove deeper into the hole that is BTS, I discovered the no jams joke and "Tomorrow", my all-time favorite song by BTS EVER. It bumped Suga into my Top 3 when I made my first list ♡
I didn't think Jimin was cute at all.
At the time, he was Ketchup to me and the only thing I really liked was how solid his dance moves were. People kept commenting about how cute/hot/sexy he was but I didn't get the hype until later. I don't remember when I changed but he's been wrecking me ever since (heck, I have a Tumblr in his name xD). He's also responsible for introducing me to the terms "bagel" and "bread/chocolate abs".
After declaring myself an ARMY, everything changed.
I had newfound respect for each and every member of BTS. I got so caught up in maybe seeing them at KCON LA that I forgot I'd probably have to go solo if my parents gave me the green light. Can you imagine that? I was so consumed with seeing them that I hadn't realized I was practically alone in my newfound obsession until my mom pointed it out. I'm doing better though. My friends know that I like kpop and I met some kpoppers who's fanboy/girl level I have yet to assess.
So, what were you first impressions of these boys, ARMYs and others alike?
