Actually I am not Korean, I am a Malaysia Chinese. I started to pay attention on Korea when I was 21 years old. Honestly, I was interested only on K-Pop that time, not Korea. I began to step into the world of K-pop when the first time I watch Girl's Generation (a.k.a SNSD) music video "Gee" on YouTube.
|Korean Girl Group: "Girl's Generation (SNSD)"|
I was thinking: "why are they 9 members in a group?" That's too many members and I have never seen that many members in a single group. This was something new to me. They are all so adorable, pretty and attractive. In the "Gee" MV, they look like 9 angels wearing in colourful. Their dance are so nice although their dance are not too difficult to perform. By just watching their MV, it can really make my day feel better.
From here, I started to dig out and listen to all of their songs from previous albums. I even tried to find almost everything that related to Girl's Generation, and then I found some Korean variety shows: "Invincible Youth" and "Family Outing 2". These two variety shows started to raise my interests on all Korean variety shows, including Korean dramas.
|Korean Drama "You are My Destiny"|
My first Korean drama was "You are My Destiny". I watched this drama because YoonA (from SNSD) is the main character in this drama. Although this drama has quite a number of episodes (178 episodes), but I still watched it until the final episode. In my opinion, Korean dramas have their certain of qualities which will never make you feel too bad or bore to watch.
Girl's Generation is seriously a big contributor to Korea. They really helped a lots on promoting Korea into the world. I believe many peoples are just like me, putting their first step into Korea/K-pop because of Girl's Generation.

I really like Korea. I like their cultures, their foods, their living styles, their entertainments, their fashions and their products. Korea definitely is my first choice if I am going to foreign country for vacation. But unfortunately, I still have no chance travel to Korea for vacation yet. I really hope one day my vacation dream to Korea will come true.
