Ohh, and since it’s Sungmin’s birthday today, a happy birthday too XD.

Wow, I can’t believe 2008 has already ended O__O. It doesn’t feel like long ago I was sitting in class learning all that was required for the HSC. And now it’s the first day of 2009, a new beginning. Looking back, what exactly happened last year?

Excluding the fact that year 12 officially began, I guess what really changed in 2008 was my music taste. Besides the HSC, music really became a dominant part of my life, which is actually really odd, if you knew me before my obssession began ^^”. Before I re-entered the world of Cpop, Kpop and a tiny, tiny amount of Jpop. I really didn’t listen to any music. At all. The only English songs I would know were the ones from 2-3 years ago, i.e. 2005-06 ish o___o. And even then, I hardly knew any songs. Not that songs are meant to play a big part of my life, but compared to now, it really wasn’t a lot.

It’s funny how it was my Vietnamese friend who lead me back into Cpop, with her singing Guang Liang’s ‘童話’ throughout class ^__^. Then she started liking Wu Chun from Fahrenheit and I gained interest in the band. And as a result of Fahrenheit+S.H.E collabs, I began to like S.H.E too.  However, all because of my brother, a part of the Kpop world was revealed to me. Although his interest in DBSK did not attract my attention initially, him laughing in front of the computer when watching ‘Super Junior Fullhouse’ certainly did. And thus I began my journey into Kpop fandom. ‘SuJu Fullhouse’ did not satisfy my hunger for more of SuJu’s cracktastic behaviour, and so I moved on to EHB. After that, it was watching their MVs, listening to their songs, watching the shows they appeared on as guests, etc. Not long after, DBSK began to grow on me, not because of SuJu’s collab with them in ‘Show me your love’, but because of their song ‘Hi Ya Ya’. Because really, who can not love that song ♥♥♥? I do think ‘Purple Line’ played a part too in igniting my interest in them too. Soon, Wonder Girls’ three ‘mania’ songs caught my attention and even though I don’t really follow them, it did open up my Kpop knowledge to including girls as well lol.
