I almost left the Kpop fandom, though I supposed not fully.
When I started college I was busy. New city, new people, new classes.
I was still a fan of the old stuff that I will love forever, but anything new was just going to take up too much of my time, and I started to completely stray away from the Kpop fandom.
Because I was the only person I know who listened to Kpop, there was no one around me talking about it or keeping my interested.
That is, of course, until Infinite happened.
I don't know why I listened to Be Mine, but holy cow I was roped right back into the fandom.
I started watching Sesame Player, I was learning Korean again, I was HOOKED.
I never really watch live performances on music shows but I watched every single Be Mine performance, and to this day I still don't know why. I was hypnotized.
To this day, I truly think it was that song that got me back into Kpop and considering all the good friends I've made through this crazy fandom, I am so so thankful.
