Are you still a fan of the person/duo/group that got you into K-pop/J-pop/J-rock?

If so, who are they and how long have you been fans of them? If not, any particular reasons why? For me, SHINee's ultimately the group that first got me into K-pop back in like late 2011/early 2012 and all these years later I'm still forever a Shawol and still invested in K-pop lol โค๏ธ!

Super Junior & 2ne1 are the groups that got me into kpop when I was in highschool back in 2009. Nowadays, both groups seem to focus on their individual activities (?), though I'd like to hear some new songs from them one day. There are so many groups to keep up lately and they're getting younger and younger. I only listen to the groups and songs that really catches my attention.

As for Jpop, I really like Ayumi Hamasaki's music since I was a kid (i think shes not active nowadays), I do still listen to Jpop music especially anime songs casually through Spotify & Youtube channel though.

Exo actually got me into Kpop in 2013, and I don't think I fully appreciated them until after checking out other groups and eventually realising that I still do really like them XD

@hopelesswriter Ooh Shinhwa's a classic, yes ^^. And yea it seems every year, there's more toxicity unfortunately but I try to stay in my lane/lil' bubble with fellow fans who don't act whack otherwise I'd prob have no fandom I'd say I'm a part of lol.

Shinhwa and yes i still consider myself a fan of them though i haven't been following them much for quite awhile...but if i hear they're having a comeback, i'd still get excited and check it out...even if my ult group now is actually the group whose members were handpicked by Shinhwa members as their successors in a survival show, Battle. (they're way more shortlived than most groups but somehow they remain my ult)...kpop and fandoming have gotten wayyy more toxic and exhausting than my good old happy days but i still keep up out of habit i guess...it's been way too long anyway.

I’ve been interested in Kdrama since 2009, but I started listening to kpop songs in 2001. I loved miss A and 2pm, they still mean so much to me, but I’ve become an exoL in 2017, and that changed my life. Exo is in my heart โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ Once an exoL, always an exoL โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

My first group ever was the Japanese idol group, KAT-TUN, but whenever I see them onscreen, I feel nostalgic and a bit sad because I was one of those fans that gradually left a group because my bias got married... I was so hurt at the time that I decided to get into K-pop (I had mainly listened to J-pop and anime-related music) and got into K-pop so bad and so deep with TVXQ, SHINee, SNSD, Big Bang, 2PM, 2AM, and EXO that I couldn't return to J-pop (and because the copyright for any Japanese media content is so strict, it's hard to access subbed Japanese content other than anime T_T).

You are a true fan for having been with SHINee for a decade! I've always wanted to be a fan of a group for so long, but it's hard to do so when there are so many groups just as good, haha. I wish you the best with SHINee and your K-pop journey. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰
