    I am not a K-Pop fan but as I was once involved with someone who was a big fan, I managed to get a bit of a taste for it.

    I don't listen to Korean music often at all but I do rather like It G Ma by Keith Ape, and I am smitten by Fiestar. I know quite a lot of K-Pop songs but not enough to really be a fan, as I do not follow it.

    But How can you not follow it, if you don't mind me asking? It is soo hard to get out of once you're in it ahaaha ... I need help. I guess everyone has there own preferences.

    Mine was Dope and I had seen stuff about him on tumblr and I was like BAE!1!111 (he's still bae though lol)

    Which ones have you watched? What would you reccommend? I used to be addicted but now I can barely finish an episode because the female characters annoy me so much!

    Speaking anecdotally, most people I knew who were big K-Pop fans were generally teens on the younger end. So when I was around them when they were going crazy over Luhan or whatever, I had my own obsessions.

    I think, I also don't really hear K-Pop the conventional way through tumblr or mnet or whatever it is people use, the first K-Pop song I heard was some Seungri song on a hair styling video and I found Fiestar through some League of Legends video.

    I did have a phase where I was really into the K-Pop or Korean style but I mostly kept it to myself because it was a bit weird haha. I even tried getting into K-Dramas but I only watched one, although it was AMAZING! Seriously 'My Love from the Star' made me feel a lot of feelings.

    Yep sounds a lot like the people I knew, albeit I was super into anime when I was a bit younger, now not so much. I used to find it kinda weird cause my ex-girlfriend was so crazy about K-Pop and I was always a bit jealous.

    Haha yup!

    I've watched quite a few:
    - To The Beautiful You
    - Heartstrings
    - City Hunter
    - Surplus Princess
    - The Moon Embracing The Sun
    - Iljimae
    - Rooftop Prince
    - Doctor Stranger
    - Pinocchio
    I recommend all of these tbh, but some may have the "annoying" female lead. But still, they're good! (let's not forget the gorgeous male leads <3)

    My Love from the Star :love: The third kdrama I ever watched, absolutely adored it! The ending literally made me cry

    I'm a relatively new K-pop fan, watching 'Youtubers React to Kpop' opened the inescapable black hole of Kpop for me. EXO is my first love, f(x) my favourite girl group and recently I'm becoming addicted BTS

    Odd question but if anyone here is a fan of Japanese movies, I am trying to remember a film I watched a couple of years ago about some killing in a school? Can't really remember the premise but I remember it being quite popular (not Battle Royale), it was quite dark.

    EDIT: NVM, It was called Confessions.

    I've actually not finished watching Shingeki no Kyojin, I started watching it when the episodes were still being released and I changed my profile picture on TSR to it back in like 2013 and then I kinda quit the site. But I kept getting messages about Eren, so I decided to keep the picture when I returned.

    I see. I enjoyed the story of Pinocchio, since I'm planning to study media it gave me an insight. Plus it was done realistically and had a good OST (plus Lee Jong Suk is bae).

    Oh and you're welcome
