KPOP isn't our WHOLE life. We have other interests, though maybe not as addicting.
I've found that what makes Kpop fans so cool is how they even got into Kpop. It was usually a (great) mistake linked to things they liked before - in my case, Jpop.
What are your past and present fandoms that still have a close place in your heart?
I'm not headfirst into the fandom anymore, but my first ever real fan-family was the MCRmy. Anything MCR related, I probably still know it. I don't really listen to them a lot now just because I want to keep those memories from that time in my life fresh. When I do overhear an MCR song though...its over. I'm singing so loudly I'm pretty sure Gerard can hear me where ever he is in the world.
I had a huuuuge thing for Johnny's Entertainment too. NEWS, Hey Say Jump, KAT-TUN. Tegoshi Yuya is still AMAZING, I love him. I started learning Japanese with their help :)
Harry Potter. Enough said. They are the few books that I feel like I actually get lost in. I forget that I'm reading and I feel like I'm just watching it unfold before me. I'm still looking for books that will get me like that, but I have a feeling HP will be number one, always.
