The good side of it:
I am learning Korean language because of KPOP. Im learning Mandarin too! I was lame before when it comes to fashion, i was like a nerd! But I improved the way I dress, influenced by boy bands Super Junior & BIGBANG. And a girl band which is 2NE1. Yea, Im a girl and I dont overdo clothes, I still keep it simple. My friends like the way I dress now. My make up is just for my lips because they are pale. I use concealer too to hide some blemishes. I was careless before, SUPER careless about how I look but now I became a little conscious. I appreciate music a lot more than before. I also listen to Japanese, Chinese and Taiwanese songs which is influenced again by my kpop biases. I am always gaining new friends, which are kpop fanatics too. Im helping my biases when Im buying their newly released albums, I feel great when Im doing that! 😀
The bad side of it:
I dont talk to most of my real life friends anymore because I feel like im not myself when Im talking to them. They are annoyed because they dont like KPOP. They like to drink, I think it’s better to be addicted to KPOP than being addicted to alcohol and cigarettes. My grades started to fall, sometimes I fail exams coz Im spending more time on watching music videos than studying. I dont even go to school sometimes or sometimes I cut classes. I spend more time at home than hanging out with my bestfriends. Every fangirl spends money on albums, merchandise and etc, sometimes Im broke because of those things. Im buying things that I dont need or even use which leads to wasting my money. Oh I wont forget this, I will get really really hurt when my bias has a girlfriend already (But I cant do anything about it, I just have to accept it when that happens).
Lesson learned: I need to balance my life, my time (for studying and fangirling) and my social life coz im spending time with my kpop friends more than my real friends and they are still mad at me. I hope I could fix everything when I get back to school for the first semester. If you’re addicted to something, you just have to learn how to control yourself.
