permalink I'm curious how other people started liking kpop. A friend kept posting status messages about how hilarious SuJu Fullhouse was... and that got me started on Kpop. My first Kpop band/artist was Suju. :)

permalink It came along with j-pop. I started to listen to j-pop and I wanted to found other artists. When I was looking for them, I found few Korean artists and that's how I started to listen to k-pop.

permalink I was actually trying to get back into j-pop because I started watching the doramas. So I decided to look for another boy group, I believe I even typed in 'Best Japanese Boy Group' and I got sent to a forum (prolly crunchyroll or soompi) and besides from Kat-Tun, Arashi, and News, DBSK/ Tohoshinki was the most listed one. That is how I found Mirotic :STbigSmile:
oh the memories :RBcrying: Changed my life forever~ :RBcrying: It's a miracle I found them, and I really don't know how my life would be if I hadn't found them...... :crying: :lovec:

permalink My friend mentioned DBSK to me in middle school. At the time, I was really into a Taiwanese boyband called F4 (now JVKV)so I didn't bother listening to DBSK at all. After they "disbanded" for quite a while, I suddenly remembered my friend telling me something about DBSK/TVXQ so I decided to check them out. The first music video that I saw was Miduhyo, or "I Believe". I fell in love with them immediately. I watched alot more DBSK/TVXQ videos, then I started to like SUJU also.I'm still a cassiopeian/E.L.F at heart. It has already been four years since I started liking DBSK/Tohoshinki :RBheart:

permalink Hmmmm I was actually watching some music videos on Channel [V](which was the reason i started to like Jpop and Kpop musics lol), then at that time they played kpop and jpop musics, then the song that caught my attention is DBSK's Mirotic, I thought the vid is really upbeat and you know I love upbeat musics xD, so i liked the song and the video too. So then I started to watch Channel [V] more often to just listen to Kpop music and jpop musics and also started to check other kpop artists on youtube too xD. The other artist that expanded my love of k-pop is Super Junior's Sorry, Sorry another upbeat track haha, lol actually I'm just listening to it right now lol what a coincidence xD my player is on shuffle lol. So I'm thanking DBSK and Super Junior for making me love Kpop ^_^. Now I have other Kpop artists that I like, and those are Super Junior, DBSK, Big Bang and 2NE1.

Just like u, the first kpop song that i listen was balloons. I have to say that at first i didn't like them because i got a weird music mix. I listen to Balloons, after Doushite and then Mirotic and i was like Why are they always changing their still but later on i started to like them and NOW I'M ADDICT!!!

Back to the question, my friend made me listen to those three song that i named before. And i very thank him alot for that.
