First off, happy new year everyone! ^^
So I’m just gonna be talking about my experience with kpop in 2012 cos I’m random like that. So here goes.
I got into kpop in 2012. Like, really really into kpop. Y’know, finding out all their names, birthdays, birth names, old songs, new songs, watching every single live performance, buying albums etc etc.
I knew about kpop in 2010, through either Sorry Sorry, Nobody, or Lollipop (I can’t remember). I just listened to kpop songs and I’m like, this song is from Bigbang, suju, b2st, without knowing which member is which.
I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one, but at first I thought that all of them looked the same and I got confused with all their names. The first Beast song I listened to was Say No (Take Care of my Girlfriend) cos my friends were spazzing of Gikwang. So I went home and watched the mv, and hell was I lost. I googled Gikwang’s pictures and tried to match his face to the one in the MV, but I just kept getting confused. Ny first, fatal mistake was looking at the hair colour. I pretty much screwed myself right there.
Near the end of 2011, I found out that my close friends actually liked kpop, so I got influenced and bam 2012 is kpop year for me. I first got into Bigbang, 2NE1 and Beast. Later on my friends introduced MBLAQ, Infinite and SHINee to me. In February when my friend told me to listen to Infinite’s Paradise, I told her I’d never be an Inspirit. HAHAHA BIG JOKE they’re my top 3rd group right now.
I’m actually glad that I got into kpop in 2012 because all the groups that I love/like had a comeback. Bigbang, 2NE1, Beast, Infinite, MBLAQ, SHINee. And so, I’d watch every single live performance (MCD, mubank, mucore, Inkigayo etc) and spazz with my friend about the members’ hair, outfit, vocals, dancing, blah blah blah (standard fangirling).
MAMA. Because of kpop, because I love kpop, I sat on my couch for 6 hours straight watching MAMA, screaming and spazzing (good thing no one was home) and praying my neighbours won’t call the police. In 2011 I did watch MAMA, hell it was in my own bloody country. I watched Beast’s and 2NE1’s performance but I didn’t sit through the entire thing like I did in 2012.
Gayo Daejun. KBS, SBS, MBC. Sure I’ve heard of Gayo Daejun in 2011, but I was super confused cos I didn’t know there 3 different Gayo Daejuns. So in 2012, I had more knowledge of kpop and now I understand hahahaha.
I started watching Running Man because of the Bigbang episode, and now I’m totally in love with Running Man. I started watching from episode 1 a month ago and I’m at episode 50+ now.
Also, many many many groups debut in 2012 and the competition is really getting tougher in the kpop industry.
2012, the year I really started to love kpop. Because of kpop my life was really better. When I was sad I’d listen to kpop. When I was happy I’d danced to kpop. When I was bored I’d watch Running Man. I even took part in this event at school and danced kpop with a couple of my other friends. Not to mention I went for Alive. ;)
