How Did Kpop Change You?

Obviously Kpop has changed all of our lives in some way.


Sometimes just tiny details, and sometimes in a huuuuuge way!

I wanted to share a few random ways that Kpop changed me (besides the obvious like learning Korean haha)

1. Drinking more coffee

I was always more of a tea drinker, but when I started getting into Infinite (Sungyeol biased) he talked so much about only drinking Americanos that I started to try to drink coffee more. I'm still a tea-lover but I drink coffee all the time now :) Side note: Sungyeol actually had to stop drinking so much coffee because it was negatively affecting his health! Be careful with caffiene haha!

2. Being braver with fashion!

I was never super afraid to try dress however I wanted, but there were plenty of things I thought I could just never pull off. But thanks to the semi-ridiculous and over the top fashion in the Kpop world, I've learned to just try anything! Its all about confidence anyway :)

3. Getting into a fandom

I was a huge fan of a lot of things growing up, but I never felt part of a "fandom" if that makes sense. Kpop was the first time I felt like I had people to talk to, to freak out with, etc. It felt good and now I feel like other things I'm a fan of feel a little bit...empty? Thanks fam ;)

I would say that KPOP changed me into someone I am proud to be. I'm bolder, I'm more culturally aware of things not just in Korea, and I'm happier with life itself. I wouldn't trade KPOP for anything in the universe........I love it with all my heart.

Kpop didnt change me that much, the one major thing it did change was leading me to find Vingle ! With no body around me to share my Kpop love I looked for apps where I would be able to connect and share with people that liked kpop as well. And thats when I met all you lovely people who helped me come out of my shell more and be more open about liking something that is "different". 😄

it made me want to be a better person and it also made me more considerate towards people, it gave me hope for humanity and society- and my mom said kpop isn't good for you😒 I used to be a stuck up brat that bullied other kids so...which one would you rather have in the world? That's what I thought, mom. It's not like I could escape the fandom even if I wanted to anyway😅

Kpop changed my view on the world and everything it has to offer. To think a Haitian American would listen to music from all the way across the world and enjoy it to the point of learning a new language. Kpop in all aspects changed my life, and really I can't see my life without Kpop now.

I had a bad time growing up. Michael Jackson saved me when I was 12. After his passing I felt lost. I found K-pop by accident. ..and have been so gratefull. Bigbang was my intro...I have never looked back. K-pop has been there to help through rough times.
