These are the groups I've followed since before debut. Some of these groups I supported long before debut as trainees and some within just weeks before their debut. I've been a kpop fan since mid-2014!
Hope you enjoy!
Fan Since: Around the release of 0701 (So sometime in July of 2015)
Official Debut: April 8th, 2016 (NCT U's debut)
I stumbled across NCT as SMRookies months before they even were known as NCT. I knew them as SR15B the group that made these amazing dance videos!
I agonized for months over when they'd debut and then finally came the unit NCT U with 'The 7th Sense!' I was also super fascinated by NCT's concept when they first announced it which furthered me in falling in love with them. But ima be honest I was already trash for Taeyong by that point so...
Fan Since: September 26th, 2017 (When Hellevator's teaser dropped)
Official Debut: March 26th, 2018
I stumbled across Stray Kids shortly before 'Hellevator' came out. I loved the song so much!
Fan Since: Sihyeon's teaser was the first to drop on February 18th, 2019
Official Debut: March 18th, 2019
I follow Stone Music's YouTube Channel and was instantly intrigued by Everglow's member introductions weeks before their debut. I was instantly hyped up about their debut! Technically this was part of the debut process but Ima count this group anyways cause it was a agonizing wait for their debut!
Fan Since: No.Mercy Began Airing on December 10th, 2014
Official Debut: May 13th, 2015
I watched the show that formed Monsta X, No.Mercy. Then impatiently waited for their debut! The performance below was my absolute favorite on the show! On the show I loved Hyungwon and biased him up until 'Rush' came out. Ever since I've biased Wonho.
Fan Since: May 18th, 2018
Official Debut: October 24th, 2018
I came across Ateez first as KQ Fellaz. These performances really got me! I was instantly hooked!
Fan Since: June 24th, 2018
Official Debut: January 9th, 2019
I got to know them first through their debut trailer however, the debut trailer was released 6 months before their debut so I'm considering this pre-debut. Plus I knew of Hwanwoong from Produce101. (Which I hadn't watched but I knew Hwanwoong because of his dance skills.)
Fan Since: December 12th, 2016
Official Debut: July 19th, 2017
I found K.A.R.D when 'Oh Nana' came out.
The one's that follow are re-debuted groups but I thought I'd mentioned them too.
Fan Since: June 24th, 2018
Re-Debut: May 13th, 2019
I knew of ONEWE as MAS 0094 but I wasn't a huge fan until their debut trailer. DON'T SLEEP ON THEM!
Fan Since: July 5th, 2015 (Kind of, I didn't truly get to stanning them until they re-debuted)
Re-Debut: January 12th, 2017
I knew Dreamcatcher as MINX (because of Love Shake) though I wasn't a huge fan I still had listened to them before.
Fan Since: I believe since around late 2014 (I'm not entirely sure, Beautiful Night was my first song I heard by them but it was released in 2012 and I wasn't a kpop fan yet then.)
Re-Debut: March 20th, 2017
I used to be a huge BEAST fan!
