The Obsession Began With TaeyangI remember a few years back, my friend had showed me a few of Big Bang's music videos. I'm not exactly sure if they were the first Kpop group I ever heard, but back then I was really into hardcore/screamo bands. Needless to say I was not too interested in their music, I don't really remember my initial impression of them.
The video he showed me, was Haru Haru, and I thought it was really sad but interesting. Fast forward to somewhere in 2010 or early 2011, I discovered an English cover of Taeyang's "I Need A Girl" that I could NOT stop listening to, I thought it was amazing. I remember visiting the original MV, thought it was cool, but preferred the English version.
During 2010-2011 I kept hearing a lot about Kpop in general, and Big Bang. Especially the scandals the members were involved in during 2011, and with the MTV EMAs, my interest heightened even more.
Fast forward to 2011, my same friend showed me Taeyang's "Wedding Dress" MV, and that's when the obsession began. @.@ Not only was Taeyang so attractive, but his music was so meaningful, and the video was so sad that it left me wanting more. So I checked out all of his music, then I headed over to Big Bang's music, and listened to like everything. Now i'm nothing short of obsessed Kpop, mostly big bang, and all things Korean.
