lemme see... it all started when i was 13. I had to come up with a dance choreography in like.. 4 days for some silly after-exam activity. and i had to teach the choreography to my friends who were also picked by my teacher to suffer along side me ㅠ.ㅠ yeah so i went to my fellow friend/neighbour for help cuz she used to do these kinda things back when we were in primary school. So, she suggested i used DBSK's Rising Sun and she taught me some choreography that she did last time. (won't elaborate on the details and blah) at first i thought DBSK was the song while Rising Sun was the band! ROFLMAO. gosh now that i think about it, it's really 바보. ㄱㄱㄱㄱ moving on to when i was 15. that's like.. 9th grade/form 3 (where i come from). i was invited to go for a camp with my friend and her friends and her brothers. only a few of us actually. the rest of the campers comprised of KOREANS. yeah. big deal. why weren't they japanese? haha yeah that was what went through my mind when i got to the camp site which was... in the middle of a oil palm estate. no phone signal, no internet access. but there was a pool though :3 (i never got in anyway =.=) yeah, so there were about 40 korean teenagers from King's kids Church in S.Kr. i wasn't interested in korean music/culture then. I was more of a Japanese fanatic (thanks to anime/manga/games/and another best buddy of mine) yeah, then one of my friends who went for the camp with me told me that the latest korean song craze was LIES by BIGBANG (yeah i caps them coz they're my bias now >:3 ) i was like "oh okay. blue tooth it to me." so i took a listen and was like "hmm not bad. but i'm still japanese-fied." and then during dinner we sat with some koreans (duh. our ratio to koreans were like 1:10) and she played Lies on her phone and they were like "WHOA BIGBANG!!" and the craze spread to the other tables as well! Friend and I were really surprised. rofl.
yeah so anyway, when i got home i googled some BB songs and the first was Dirty Cash and.. How Gee i think. i was like "meh =.="
then, my first Kpop obsession was DBSK. honestly, i have like 7 DBSK albums and 2 concert DVDs. My first album was Five in the Black. heh brings back memories. i remember going all crazy over them in class with my fellow desk mate (if you're reading this, you know who you are!) then, came in the other groups like FT.Island, SHINee, er.. SuperNova, Super Junior, SNSD, Wonder Girls, etc etc. and of course BB but DBSK was my bias back then and Xiah was my "husband" (미안해 준루시 :S) the DBSK craziness stopped when Mirotic came out. I didn't buy the album; to my own surprise. then the fandom slowly ebbed away. during 2008, Korean Pop wasn't really that hyped up as compared to now. come to think of it, Kpop is really main stream now. it doesn't feel special anymore when you're listening to Kpop coz 3/4 of the world is listening to them too. :/ yeah so anyway, I can't remember when i got into Big Bang. must be before Mirotic came out coz I was crazy over Haru Haru when it was released. so yeah. things died down with BB after they went on hiatus for a long time. I listened to Kpop less, i stopped watching dramas, i hardly watched their variety shows and stuff. then, the craze came back when TONIGHT came out. after that, i back tracked and downloaded a few songs from GD&TOP's collaboration album. High High's my favourite. meheheheh
i have.. 1 BB album and 3 concert DVDs. though i have to say, that my BB album is my most Prized posession (after my DSLR and guitar)
