Nearly all of us have been a fan of someone or something at a point in our lives.
It could be a pop idol, actor, a movie, show or even an anime.
And there would definitely be a moment as a fan, you would find to be most memorable.
So, come join us in this thread, grab a virtual choc chip cookie, and tell us what it is. :heartublob:


Let me begin by saying that mine was seeing Seventeen win their first-ever music show. They were a year old group at that point and they came from a relatively small company. The odds were stacked against them. Many believed they would fail and become another group that would disappear into oblivion. But that day, on the 4th of May 2016, seventeen won their first-ever music show and proved to the naysayers that they were not going to disappear. They were here to stay.
To see these boys who prior to debut, would promote themselves on the street, and invite people to come to see them perform for free, stand shocked and speechless after their win made me tear up. They had trained for years with uncertainty because their debut kept being pushed back, and now to see them cry and hold each other for support, as their hard work seemed to finally bear some fruits... it was heartwarming. I was genuinely happy for them. And now svt have gotten other wins but that win. The first one. That was one of my most memorable moments as a fan. And I am glad I could witness it.

So what about you? What is your most memorable moment?

Aki, how could you do this to me and include that particular pic/moment of Twice in the banner. I'm in pain :tears:

I don't think I can list just one moment, but some of the most memorable for me are:

-Seeing the very first teaser of Like Ooh Ahh:

-Twice first win

dddo510gcbw21.jpg


-Tzuyu's flag "scandal". It honestly was a scary period since the group was so newly established. There was a lot of fear as to what their future might be like. Then they finally got through it...that moment where the girls were forming a circle around Tzuyu was memorable for me.

-Mama speech of 2018 since as a fan, I know how hard they had it that year - probably the toughest year, workload wise.

-Hearing the news about Mina's anxiety. Really didn't expect them to disclose in such detail so it'd taken a while for me to come to terms with it. We all know idols struggle, but this time it hit close to home since I could relate to her condition from my own experience.

-Seeing Twice (8 of them) live for the first time at Twicelights in Newark, and witnessing the mint ocean of Mina's color there was by far one of the most emotional moments for me.

-Twice 4th anniversary where they performed together again, and hearing Mina saying "Onces" for the first time in a long time before the group hug.

I'm gonna stop here before I turn into a sobbing mess and this turns into an even longer essay aflskd :sejeongcry: Ugh, why you gotta make me bring out my sentimental side :jinjudge:

the moment when yujin name was called during produce 48 finale

Dl7uq4pUYAArJRW


when her name was called i jumped out of my seat celebrating (and crying)...that never happens before, now i understand how sports fan feels when their fave team scores

i was so happy about it, i will never forget the strong euphoric feeling that i had

whenever i think of happiness i look back to this moment.


not to be that person, but iam generally a happier person after she debuts

I've followed BTS since their debut pretty much
i think watching them become million sellers was the most memorable moment
i was biased ,but i always thought they would be big, but never imagined them selling a million
but maybe their first win too

Sori leaving her crappy member behind and serving bop of 2018. (and i guess just her music career in general.)
A nobody nugu, told she was too old to be in the industry, from an absolutely broke company, birthed her first anthem.


(Stream to get her 3mill for her 30th this month kek)

Her entire career has been far from easy, but I'd never been prouder. All her projects were crowd funded on tiny budgets, but sis went out and gave it 110%. An era as a fan I'll never forget... and as my broke ass decided to financially support her endeavours, neither will my wallet. kek

GOT7 dropping 7 for 7 album, I remember my whole morning that day because it was my 1st comeback of theirs and I was so excited, I also remember the pain of loving You Are from first listen, but having to wait the whole day to listen to the rest of the album since I had no more time in the morning to do it lol

The moment I decide I want to go bankrupt for the said thing or group. That's when I know I've really become a fan of something; I love the excitement I get from it when I realise that! Although I may have lost interest in some things, looking back on the stuff I bought brings back a lot of memories and it makes me happy. I try to let some things go but I'm too sentimental, like... I have some manga series I bought 8+ years ago and still wanting to complete the collection. :peepoblanket:

Fam. I have TERRIBLE memory... I'll just go with two memories related to my main biases:

When Suho's solo album was announced
When Jungwoo joined the not-jobless-squad, I mean 127 :shablob:

In k-pop it was my first GOT7 comeback (Flight Log: Turbulence).It was also my first k-pop comeback so everything was new...the teasers, music shows, realities, interviews...all of it.
I'm a BoA fan for 11 years now but only after i became a GOT7 fan that i dived deep into the korean culture in general...and i was amazed.

When vixx's fantasy teaser dropped. That was my first cb with them as a starlight, although I was looking into them before. I was shook because it was so different from the fun dynamite comeback earlier. The epic orchestral teaser really made me go...wow, yep, this is my group.

The conception era in general was such a festive time to join. I think they had set a record back in 2016 for highest number of promotions in a year. But after that they took a loong break so it still remains the most memorable to me and many other starlights.

Where do I even begin?

- TWICE's first ever daesang win at MMA in 2016



- SHINee winning Artist of the Year in 2013



- Yena's name being called out as one of the IZ*ONE members



- IZ*ONE having their first comeback stage post-Mnet controversy when for months it looked like they were gonna disband. Also their first win after all of that. Seeing Eunbi breakdown hit hard.



Literally all of these had left me a sobbing mess​

bap - yongguk and zelo dropping am 4:44 and no-title; just seeing them not holding back anymore and saying everything they want to really hit me. that was a really memorable year for bap cos i saw a different side to them
bts - their first american promos in general will stay with me; but when jungkook sang on stage with zion.t. that was another level of pride, i remember being so happy for him
exo - just 2014 and 2015 in general, suho alone on stage at that music show and them releasing promise
seventeen - their first win, but also when their parents gave them their rings in seventeen project, and they were all a huge crying mess (including me dfogufg)

i cant think of anything else rn ghghgh

hmm, first would be svt's debut project + special debut show on mbc in 2015. i had been following them since 2013 with 17tv, and there was so much doubt leading up to their debut that i myself was starting to believe in it. to be able to watch the first adore u live stage and seeing them going from performing in front of 50 people to successfully completing their debut mission of ~1000 people was a special experience in itself.

second is their first music show win on show champ in 2016. for the reasons you already mentioned, it was amazing to see that their hard work is finally repaid. i was emotional to see them cry, especially the leader line who had the most responsibility on their shoulders.

third, not a big event but probably when they released the mv for smile flower. it always has a special place in my heart, especially the part where the fans sing along to the chorus. i always tear up a bit whenever i watch the mv.

fourth, when an ode's 1st week sales reaches 700k. this was more funny because of how fans were racing to buy albums last minute before the day ends. i was continuously checking for hanteo updates every hour lol.

fifth, the announcement of svt's dome tour. it's special because i felt like svt has been able to grow to the point of being able to hold a dome tour and having so much demand that extra dates were added, a prestigious privilege that not many groups have been able to have. even though it has been cancelled due to the pandemic, i really hope that svt will be able to stand on those stages in the future.

lastly (for now), is the current era with left & right. svt became a million seller, carats are working hard to improve on digital sales and mv views, and i think svt themselves are very happy about this era so far. hopefully there will be more memorable moments to come.

'Fingertip' was GFriend's first comeback I saw from start to finish. I had little exposure to Kpop before then, and it was the first album I'd purchased. It's also memorable because I decided to sign up to a forum so I could experience it with other buddies at the time. The MV still gives me goosebumps and now following them on forums has became a big part of my world.

At the same time I became a little addicted to their Vlives, and would watch every minute of every video (still do). I eventually reached the top spot in the fandom for a while but it became impossible to stay at the top forever. They soon had over a million followers on Vapp and it was consuming all of my spare time on the app and 2GB data a day just trying to stay in the top 10.

My finger did get sore from pressing hearts, so the song title was spot on I guess. :doge:
