As Valentines's Day is winding down I'd like to take a moment to show you my biases and why they're my biases!
Although I don't really stan them anymore, they'll have have a special place in my heart as they're the reason I'm even in the kpop fandom, which I'm sure applies to many people. GD, Taeyang, and Seungri stood out to me so much when I first watched Bang Bang Bang. GD's songs always have so much feeling in them and I was in love with it.
I used to believe you could only support one group, this stems from when I was younger and listened to things like Black Veil Brides, some fans yelling at multifandom fans that they weren't true fans because they spread their love everywhere. Now I see how wrong that is, but back then I really beliebved it. Until I watched Dope. This doctor stole my heart immeditely with his goregous voice. Plus he's such a dork. Dad jokes? My kind of humor.
Block B: U-Kwon
I got into BTS and Block B on the same day. One of my friends on Tumblr told me how dorky they both were and honestly, she understated it. As soon as I saw Very Good, I was sold. I love how he's such a proud dog parent hahaha
This one was maybe a month after I got into the other three. In fact the struggle to not get into the fandom was one of my first cards on here. I had Youtube aut0playing from a BTS song and Just Right came on. For a while I couldn't choose my bias between JB, Jinyoung, and Youngjae. I still have problems with it to this day hahaha. But I watched Dream High and Dream High 2 shortly after and what solidified him was this song.
I came across B.A.P by watching Youtubers React to kpop. They reacted to One Shot and it looked like such a good music video so I watched it. I laughed at Yongguk's English, fell for Youngjae, and fell in love with the song. It was exacly the type of music I liked. That's the thing though, I fell for Youngjae. I watched 1004 next and fell even harder for him, not seeing any of the other members. Then along came Badman. Daehyun took my breath away. He was so gorgeous. Then I watched lyric videos and realized his voice was my favorite. His range, his sound, everything. I still get astounded to this day by it and by him.
This was another one that came from a Youtuber reacting to kpop. He reacted to Beautiful Liar by LR. I think we can all agree that's one of the most beautiiful songs and musivc videos to come out of kpop. I fell hard for Leo. I decided it wouldn;t hurt to check out VIXX and when I searched them Error was the first to pop up. As soon as I saw this scene: My bias chose me, not the other way around.
Seventeen: Hoshi and Woozi
This one took a while to actually happen. I had such a ddifficult time learning all the members names and faces, because I mean there's 13. The most I had learned before was 7. But once I did, I was faced with a dilemma. I had biased basically every member Woozi and older. The longer I've known Seventeen, the smaller the biases got. I think these two are the smallest it'll get. They're both so incredibly talented and I honestly relate to them so much sometimes. Plus I mean..same age as me hahha.
I was so proud of myself dor so long for this one. I've never once gotten into a group that had just debuted. I remember thinking how cool it was that the music video dropped 4 hours before I had watched it. MJ's voice took my breath away. It was so beautiful. Not to men tion he's such a good dancer too. What really solidified him though was his personality. I absolutely love his humor.
EXO: Chanyeol and Baekhyun
This one was completely accidental. This was back when ARMY's were claiming that EXO plagiarized BTS with the whale that was in Sing For You and that Whalien 52 is about. I had watched the music video so I could properly defend them. After that I just sort of fell down a rabbit hole. What made me decide to finally start stanning them was a v live with them and Suho singing songs in the car on the way to somewhere.
I can honestly say I don't really remember what happened at this point. I know that @Halsyeon was the reason, a trend that shows up multiple times after this. I think what made me fall for him was his humor, his voice, and his guitar playing. I've always had a thing for guitar players hahaha
This is one I really don't know how it happened. At all. I'm completely blanking. All I remember is I tried to watch Married to the Music a copole times but was always too freaked out by it to finish it. Then one day I watched it and was like "This isn't that creepy." Also the late Jonghyun was about to be another bias. May he rest in peace. Miss you Bling Bling.
Monsta X: Wonho and Minhyuk
Yet another that is @Halsyeon's fault. Honestly all the ones that follow are too. So one day she was talking about this guy named Wonho, so I looked him up. MY oh my was he breathtaking. I asked her about him and some songs I should listen to and Rush was one of the first ones. He and Minhyuk latched on tight from there hahaha
If you know me, then you know I have a huge weakness to humor, memes and dad jokes. Well after I got Erica into Astro and she showed me how much JinJin and Cory looked alike, she started showing me some of his posts and it was a downhill journey from there.
Cross Gene: Shin
This one started out as Erica just showing me some songs from underrated groups (History, 24K, and Cross Gene. Probably some others but I don't remember hahaa) and hoo boy did Shin catch my eye. I pushed him and Cory to the back of my mind for a while until Legend of the Blue Sea came out. Thus began ,y year long battle of fighting feelings for Cory and Shin until this Christmas I finally decided to give in. Merry Christmas boys.
This one is quite funy. Erica sent me a couple gifs of Junhyuk and I've never fell so fast for someone before. It went from me looking at pictures of his to listening to all their songs to me nearly declaring him as my ultimate bias, luckily Daehyun held tight to his spot hahaha.
NCT: Taeil, Taeyong, and Ten
This all stemmed from one video of some members playing the Baskin Robbins game. Yet again Erica is to blame. I'm so happy I got into them though. And I can;t wait to be wrecked by Lucas, Jungwoo, and Kun hahaha
Pentagon: Hui, Hongseok, and Yeo One
This one is equally Erica's and @yehetmyohorat97's faults. I made a deal with Katt if I check out Pentagon, she'd check out Hotshot. I can honestly say I'm so close to ending up biasing all 10 members hahaha
Stray Kids: Felix
Yet another one that's Erica's fault, only partly though. Once Hellevator came out, and I mean right when it did, we watched it and my god those kids were talented. I hadn't chosen a bias or even made up my mind as to if I would stan them until Minho got eliminated. I started watching the show and quickly decided Felix was my bias. Then he got eliminated. I nearly cried when JYP brought he and Minho back andthen cried when he confirmed they'd debut as 9. I'm so proud of these boys and can't wait until they debut.
