EVERYONE knows my story coz I've said it so many times, but what is once more
After getting me hooked to Wonder Girls and their album, my Asian music guru came to me one day saying "Oh hey, check out this new girl group that I think has lots of potential, they're so great" (ironically he is totally MEH about them now lol) and forced me to watch the ITNW MV. Watched it a couple of times as he went through telling me a little about all the girls so I could learn their names etc. My opinion of them was "They're ok I guess" but I picked Jess & Sunny as my faves because they were the badass graffiti artists lol, I liked Sunny most coz she was cute and had a cool name. But that was it for SNSD at the time, my guru didn't get into them much more and the more I grew as a WG's fan, the more I saw SNSD as a rival group and become a bit of a hater. When Kissing You came out, I gave them another chance but the over the top cuteness drove me crazy (can I actually remember my reactions first time I saw that MV
) and I can be very a much "SNSD and their stupid cutesy act is so disgusting, grow up!!!! So crap!"... I wasn't the type of hater who looked up info to bash them with, hell I didn't even know their names anymore
*fast forward* WG & SNSD swap songs on Music Bank and WG perform Kissing You, well didn't I become a super fan of the song LOL! I was all pfffffft at SNSD's perf of Tell Me, but I saw hater comments on the youtube vid and thought it was way too extreme! I went back and listened to SNSD's Kissing You and was pretty impressed this time. WG were then guests on ChinChin radio and Sunmi is like the biggest SNSD fan, and has a mad crush on Taeyeon. Sunmi was too shy to talk and Taeyeon was a COMPLETE sweetheart to her, and BAM! I was hooked on Taeyeon. I started watching Taeyeon radio clips of her singing and dorking around with Sunny, BANG, Sunny fan! When Factory Girl started I have no idea what compelled me, but after seeing a screencap of all the make up/cosmetics on their dresser when I friend asked me if girl's really have that much crap, I decided to watch it out of curiosity. AND THAT is where my SNSD fandom began. I very quickly fell in love with Sooyoung & her personality, along with Sunny even more, and I was soooooo addicted to the show lmao... Decided I should give their music another listen, I remember telling KT I would and he said now was the time seeing they were on hiatus and all so catch up while I could, and the rest is history... I lurked this forum for a while till finally admitting to myself and posting the intro thread. Sadly O_slave had already noticed my lurking and was all "finally!" LOL.
Seems somethings don't change... Sunny was my fave when I first saw ITNW and almost 3 years later, she still is
