it was about three months ago. i have a mutual that always posts nct/wayv content on their story. at first I was like "hey, i have like one or two of nct's songs in my playlist" so i didn't think much of it. i liked sm groups but i just saw nct as exo's little brother group. nct just didn't interest me as much as other kpop groups.
it wasn't until the mutual posted a picture of jungwoo that i got into them. i thought he was really handsome and pure looking so i decided to check in on their music once more and i was HOOKED.
i'll admit that the amount of members stopped me from getting into them, but it was easy to learn their names and faces for me. i began watching all their nct life seasons, variety show appearances, and fan content (all through this website <3) and they are slowly becoming my favorite group because their music is amazing and all the members are so likeable.
getting into wayv came a little later. i'm not into cpop as much (despite being chinese myself) but i really wanted more winwin content since i wasn't getting much in 127. love talk and moonwalk were really the only songs i listened to. their other songs didn't really click with me. then i watched dream plan which is probably my favorite variety show of all time. i really think they work well with each other as a group.
im so obsessed with them right now and pre-ordered both versions of Punch and one copy of Awaken the World. I plan on buying their previous albums once the covid situation is over. 😂
