INTRO TO K-POP: "My cousins were given me into K-pop. I used to be in year two of top school when I first found out K-pop on my cousin's phone, yet I did notactuallytake note of information technologytill two years later. I used to be at his area when he said, 'hey, come concentrate to this song.' I walked over to his pc and he played 'Lollipop' by skill of 2NE1 and massive Bang. I becameentering it and soon found more bands, like Girls' Generation, SHINee, Tremendous Junior, TVXQ, JYJ, SS501, 2PM, Beast, and lots more.
My earliest K-pop reminiscence was when I was at my other cousin's house. My cousin, she was a verygiant fan of K-pop and BEAST at the time, so I mightmore than likely telleach side of the circle of relatives got me into my K-pop. And each person else had listened to the genre sooner than me so I would say eitheraspects got me into it."
THE DIFFERENCE: "K-pop is like one enormous community. Eachnetwork has other people that come and crossand those that remain for a long time. What makes K-pop so authentic is that any one can listen, whether you're Korean or not. It's farcompatible for somebody at any age, and also any nationality.
And also the dances. K-pop artists even dance on level and that hardly everoccurs in many types of music. They could also bein a position to as well sing and dance at the similar time. I like that there are not any limits on what collection of people there are in a band. And the artist themselves take a glance at and engage with their lovers when possible, like grasp fan signing events, meet and greets, etc.
I would advocate new fans to hear the track first. I also would like to say that they are amazing people, they glance good, they sing and dance, even on stage. K-pop will also beprobably the mostperfectstoriesyou'll be able to have to your lifetime, if it is seeing a concert or for my partassembly your favourite idol."
CULTURAL MISUNDERSTANDINGS: "People in Australia think that K-pop is simplyany otherform of music but in a other language that isn't English, and hencethey do notwish to mind to it. But they are wrong. K-pop is more than that. K-pop is like a lifestyle. You could have new experiences, go on adventures like studying more or less new bands, tell the newest K-pop gossip to your whole friends, change intobuddies with other individualsall over the world and on your country, and also spread the just right news of K-pop. I also cannot forget, gambling 'hunt for a bias' in a K-pop band. It is not bad to take a appearance at outanything new and hear music this isfrom yourconvenience zone."
WHY EXO: "My favorite teams is EXO. I'man excessively big fan of them and feature been for 3 or so years. They are hardworking and shouldprevent at not anything to make their fans happy. EXO are incredibly handsome, and every one of them has exclusive personality. But that's what makes them who they are and that also is what we like about them. At this point, I thinkas though they are my older brothers, at all times telling fans that reading comes first and then they come second. Like Jong In EXO's Kai once said, 'If you do not get sensible grades, do notconsider liking me. Despite the truth that EXO turns out like the main thing in the arenacorrect now, after some timeyou are going tofeel sorry about it. Instead of us, center of attention on your studies and we will meet back after you change into someone you and I are both proud of.' This quote is what helps to keep me going."
FAVORITE SONG: "Love Me Right"
FAVORITE SOLO ARTIST: Eric Nam
WHY ERIC NAM: "I like Eric because he'san extraordinarily down-to-earth person, and he gets in conjunction withnearly everyone. His making a song and dancing are just on point; he looks as if a comfyuserto speak with. I also like his singing and his vocals are just wow amazing. I suspect that Eric is a great person over all."
FAVORITE SONG: "Ooh Ooh" feat. INFINITE's Hoya
