[After writing this, I realised that this is a rather long story XD]
So, I managed to get my cousin into kpop (or ‘the dark side’ as my mum refers to it, lol).
She seemed to be rather taken with Super Junior…mainly because that was probably the first kpop group I showed her. XD
Her SuJu bias is Kyuhyun (mine is Ryeowook, followed closely by Sungmin), which is odd since I always thought she’d end up liking Siwon or Leeteuk more…*shrugs*
But I’ve managed to get her to like Infinite as well >3<
A few weeks ago I made one of those paper fortune teller thingies, and I wrote names inside them for a bit of fun, so she could choose her Infinite bias ^w^ haha.
She ended up getting Dongwoo, (her reaction was like -__- ) and I started littering her facebook wall and our chat messages with pics of him. :3
It kind of started out as a joke, saying he was her Infinite bias, just teasing and joking about it; since she didn’t have a bias.
Buuuuuuuut. Turns out that he really is her bias after all :D :D :D
Anyway, some time later, after spamming each other with pics of our biases, she randomly (out of the blue) says that she thinks Sungyeol is the 2nd best.
And I just… *happy sobs*
(for the record, she wouldn’t say that unless she meant it, she’s quite picky with who she dishes compliments out to, lol)
I’m just glad I have someone to talk to about stuff now, outside of the internet, so I don’t feel like I’m burdening people with my interests anymore.
Moral of the story is: ‘exposure theory’ does work (to a certain extent lol). >3<
My own mother even said she’d be more inclined to listen to kpop if it was in English XD So don’t count her out just yet, hahaha!
[Random side note: We refer to Dongwoo as ‘Jaws’…she thought he resembled a shark… XD bless]
