I've been thinking about doing this for a while, and I don't know what the reactions are going to be but here goes nothing lmao
Let's start with I used to not like Twice. I would see their songs blowing up and doing really well and I was always like "why? Why them? What makes them so special?" I wasn't a thrice or anything I just simply didn't know what was so special. In my eyes, they were nothing more than a KPOP girl group. Those thoughts were stupid.
I didn't know Twice well, I just went with the flow. I wasn't interested in their cute concept, it just wasn't my vibe. Then, stupid ol' me started to go along with Thrice like I was influenced so much that people calling them "talentless" was taking a toll on me. The truth was, I only listened to their really old songs and they didn't hit me as much as they do now.
I saw Fancy in my recommendations one time and I was like "why the hecc not?" so I listened to it and I was really surprised. Like was this the same group who I thought was boring before? Fancy was a bop! It still is. There was one member in particular who caught my eyes. It was Jihyo. Her unique visuals and vocals surprised me because no one else in KPOP had those. She was the sole reason I (finally) dug deeper into Twice.
I'm so glad I dug deeper because I found things that made me so happy. Their great ability to work together and get along was one of the aspects that kept me going. Their backstory is one that makes me cry, everything that they went through and their admiration. At the same time, I was very confused. And I was still pretty much a baby kpoppy but I stanned Blackpink months earlier so I was like "Is it normal from being someone who dislikes a group to someone who loves them?"
Slowly, but surely, my confusion gone and I started to acknowledge that I was gradually becoming a Once. It was so strange to me for some reason. Twice has definitely changed me, in different ways than you could imagine. I was having trouble with anger at the time and I would use Twice and their music as my serotonin. Now, I've gotten better. I'm now surprised that people call me kind and sweet a lot but I don't deserve it.
Thank you for reading.
I hope that every Once here reads this because this is important to me.
Please don't get mad at me for who I was before.
