Hello Bestfriends~


I want to know how you first knew our fabulous Boyfriend. Did you know them since debut? Did their cute concept during Boyfriend era catch your attention? Or the more manly Don't Touch My Girl concept?


Did you like them since the beginning you knew them? Or did you gradually grow affection towards them?


Share here your first encounter with Boyfriend and which member you had crush on first.


Ehm... my Boyfriend story is kinda long so I'll post it later. Meanwhile, please tell me yours!

i know boyfriend through my classmates. they keep on talking and spazzing about the latest kpop group so i secretly listened to them. i wondered why they are so attach to this kind of thing unlike me who is very biased to Justin Bieber that time. I think if i am not mistaken they also brought a picture of them so i looked at it carefully and Kwangmin's the first one, shall i say i am attracted to him. Later at home, I searched up on him and appeared Boyfriend profile. Starting that day, I was very into to them and started to like kpop music better. Well, i dont feel any regret till now. :)

well mine was when i am searching for another drama of sohyun, so instead of a drama BOYFRIEND'S IYAH MUSIC VIDEO appeared,, and I'm so stupid when I'm watching the video, well i admit because im super SLOW.. while watching the MV, the first scene is when they meet in a certain part of their school where they sitting together outside.. I counted them so the group have a 6 member.. then i notice this guy <KM> riding in a bike bike "woah so handsome" i said to myself.. then again <YM> while singing his part.. then <KM> while doing his rap part.. "OMO this guy can sing and rap at the same time.. and i always see his face in the MV.. <really how stupid I am, but that is the first time i saw them so please ^^> then later on i just realized that IM NOT SEEING JUST ONE MAN,, 


...i really love kwangmin's hair on that music video.. the purple hair.. :wub: the way he stare and do his rap.. aww oozing with appeal..  :wub:

I came to know the boys when they first debuted~ I was watching music bank when I saw these boys performing~ ㅋㅋㅋ~ their concept was so cute that it caught my attention~ :rolleyes:

and of course, who wouldn't be surprised to see a pair of twins in a group?? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ i did a little research on them but i later got out of interest as I well, was in love with another group then. =P

then these boys hit me again with their Janus concept, which I again saw on music bank. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ~ i was in total awe. i think seriously... my jaw literally dropped when i saw how matured those cute boys were compared to what i saw back then!

and that had totally make me fall in love with them~ :wub:

Posted 23 June 2013 - 09:07 PM

early 2011, when I was attracted with idol, when 2010 I just watched variety show so I do know some of them only names, not songs. I downloaded all performances MVs from early 2011, like b2st, secret and b1a4. when boyfriend debut mv came out, I watched it (just because).


the one that made me fall in love with them was minwoo smile when opening Boyfriend mv (you know which one) :wub:  that when I thought, "this guy has pretty face and angelic smile" ppyong I just love them like that. since then I never missed their performances nor their debut show m!pick. since then I'm a fan of them  B)

I can't remember where I first found out about BOYFRIEND but what I can remember is that I watched the first 30 seconds of BOYFRIEND's Boyfriend a few weeks after their debut and I was overwhelmed by the cheesiness of the MV and I couldn't take the cuteness of the boys (I wasn't able to accept the fact that boys are able to act cute because boys around me are super manly...)




Andddddd I've found this video by Brent which totally fitted what I thought at that time and I resonate with how he feels towards them too :3


Anyway, I forgot about them for about a year and half before I re-discovered them through Ouran High School Host Club in December 2012. I was watching the Japanese live action of OHSHC at that time and coincidentally found a post about YoungKwang when I was searching about the Takagi twins on Tumblr 





I love twins so as a curious being I am, I decided to search them up. #not-a-very-great-life-decision

With a few click, I found BOYFRIEND's latest comeback (at that time), JANUS, to which I was like 'omg this is really cool' and 'omg look at those beautiful French outfits'. Afterwards, with another few clicks, I found their debut song, Boyfriend, which I have put at the back of my mind for one and a half year. This time round, it had done the trick. I was super interested in them omg //it just meant that my mentality slightly changed along the way// I watched all of their performances, MVs, shows etc. 


I think third week into liking BOYFRIEND, I broke down because I have NEVER LIKED BOY BANDS in the whole course of my life (I'm mostly indie mando-pop + indie english songs) and suddenly BOOM there's BOYFRIEND... :"( I guess at that time I thought I'd be one of those really diehard crazy fangirls after liking them very much but guess what? Turns out that I'm still the same old me who takes it easy when it comes to my favourite singers/bands. 


ANYWAY - My point is that after re-watching BOYFRIEND for the second time, I became a fan of them ^^


I'm sorry if I bored you in any way and I'm sorry you had to read this post which is full of my dumb experience + thoughts of BOYFRIEND kthxbye

allkpop posted about an idol group called boyfriend with twins in it i thought the name of the group was ridiculous

and it was even more absurd that they had a song the same name as their band name

but after watching it...... oh my god 


so yeah since then hehe

I saw the twin's teaser photo on Allkpop and instantly fell in love with them. I thought they're so cute, like anime characters! I wasn't planning on being a fan at all and I wasn't very nice in my first comments about the "Boyfriend" MV, but I found myself always sneakily watching their live performances and also just to see Youngmin's blond cuteness. It was like a guilty pleasure. By the time "Don't Touch My Girl" came out I was refreshing Youtube over and over again and posting tons of comments just so it would have more views XD I fell so hard for them by then.

I've known Boyfriend from my oh so loving classmate/friend. She keeps on telling me about Boyfriend ( and I must admit, I'm not really interested with it at first since Lee Min Ho is going to visit our country that time and I'm kinda busy preparing for it.. keke) Then after Lee Min Ho's event. I borrowed my friend's phone and sent some song's from her phone to mine then I saw, Boyfriend song, I sent it to my phone and then I found the song super catchy and I searched for the MV of the song and since  then I got myself sooooo INLOVE with Boyfriend and of course with Kwangmin too.. hehehe :D

I wasn't really a fan of kpop before, but then my classmate told me to listen to this song - Boyfriend and I was immediately LSSed~ so when I got home, I looked it up.  The first guy I noticed Jeongmin, then I noticed the twins *u* I've been kind of obsessed with twins eversince (I wanted to have a twin sister by cloning or something then I wanted to have twin kids in the future)

Since then, I started to wait for their comebacks. But when I started to watch their variety shows, I just fell in love ♥ ♥ ♥ That's when I think I became officially addicted to them. ♥_♥

How did I know about BOYFRIEND.. Well, lemme tell you how^^


It was the 27th of May, yes a day after their debut on MCountdown!, when I discovered our precious boys ever so randomly.


At the time, I only knew big bands like SHINee, SNSD, 2ne1 etc. I was a late kpopper. Anyways, during that time, none of them were like promoting. So I thought to myself, 'Why not give these other bands a chance'. After that I went on YouTube and just looked at some performances of some bands. I can't remember which band/video it was though. Anyways, as I was watching, I saw this featured video on the right, which was Boyfriend's Music Bank debut performance. I was like, 'Oh, cool title, interesting thumbnail...'. So, I clicked on it and watched it. And I was.. mesmerized. They were so in sync with each other, the boys are gorgeous and the song was.. kind of different but in a good way! I can't exactly remember how I felt tho TT^TT.


So I watched the whole video, and again on the featured video section, Boyfriend's first ever MV was there. Well, you guessed that right, I clicked on it. And that was the time I sucked in into this awesome and wonderful fandom. After that I tried to learn all their names, watched their shows (M!Pick) , and just... knew everything there is to know about Boyfriend. Ermeghedd. the feels cannot be explained TT^TT It was a really good experience of overflowing feels :D I REGRET NOTHING.

Posted 30 June 2013 - 05:33 PM

As for me, its on the year 2012..its because of this friend of mine..she told me to listen to boyfriend(their song).she told me things about boyfriend but since i really dont care about these boybands(coz all i care about is jang geunseuk..before!)i just listened to it and told her"yea its cute" thats it.(at first!)

Then,days passed.i forgot them(FORGIVE ME!!)i tuned in to channel M and i saw boyfriend tv(w academy) i remembered them again..so much for my curiousity,i watched it.then i saw youngmin..i was like O.O..whos that? Ive mistaken youngmins name was minwoo(because when the teacher is talking to minwoo,youngmin was beside him and hes nodding like the teacher was talking to him)after that day,i excitedly told my friend that i love minwoo(which is youngmin)she was like,back off!hes mine!!we laughed for awhile but serious again when she told me "seriously,your bias is minwoo?the cute guy with the small eyes?"then i started wondering.he is cute but he dont have small eyes..i must have been mistaken..

Days passed.i forgot them ones again(FORGIVE ME AGAIN!)i changed jang geunseuk to kim soohyun at that time(ye im a bad girl)i was surfing the net at an internet shop for an assignment.there are still 12 min.remaining..so i searched soohyuns picture,saved it on my phone and totally fangirling there!then when i clicked "new tab" i remembered them again.curiousity strikes again and i searched for their profile.i was surprise when i saw minwoo.O.o..this is not the guy.then i learned it was youngmin.when i started saving for their pictures,my memory is full.by that time,i erase everything bout soohyun and replaced it with boyfriend..then i thought..will i replace boyfriend easily like the others?

Im glad i didnt!we will be one year tomorrow! July 1..and i was known as the boyfriends girlfriend by our whole campus xD im way too addicted to them.and i know,ill never replace them again :))

Sorry for the long post xD

The first time I saw their debut, *yeah i watched it* i thought why would their name be "Boyfriend" and the song was just too cute for a boyband. So I changed my channel into something that caught more of my attention. *forgive me*

Then, I was really curious about Janus at first (not knowing it was Boyfriend's song) so I ended up searching it on Youtube, and downloaded the MV because I thought it was pretty cool (the dance and else). For about a few months, i watched Janus and Janus only lols. One day I went looking for their live performances because i think if i made Janus live mix, it would be cool. The result came up and there was their Janus practice video. (I really like those kind of videos). And i realized how awesome these guys must be. And i downloaded their live performances, made a live mix, and searched for more of their songs. Downloaded every single of their MVs. Watched every single of their shows. And voila.. Here I am now.

Since then, i would never miss a day without Boyfriend..

I actually did know there was a group named "Boyfriend" when they debuted...and before debut. I remember seeing teaser photos from Youngkwang when they first came out. I was interested and started to look forward for their debut. BUT the debut song at that time was too rainbows-and-flowers for me aka not my style and I didn't like it. So I didn't start to follow them. When they released Don't touch my girl, I liked it and saved it to my mp3 but that was it. I didn't notice them for a long time until last year when janus teasers came out. My nose was glued to my computer screen and I drooled teaser pics. I was really afraid what janus would sound like because sometimes some groups have awesome teasers but the song itself is disappointment....but when janus came out I was instantly hooked after listening just first seconds. I listened it everyday and started to look Boyfriend more closely and started to watch their variety shows (which are really awesome). From variety shows I discovered how adorable dorks the members are and their charms just captured me.

Since then I have been real Bestfriend.


Funny thing is, with every one of my biasgroups same thing has happened xD aka I didn't like them at first but they did sneak attack on me and I became totally crazy about them XD

I even like Boyfriend -song now which I first didn't like....now I'm pretty much addicted to all of their songs and I think I Yah is awesome album!!

My sister told me about this Mv and it's kinda bubbly and cute too! It was a colourful MV and I didn't even understand anything since that is my first time going into the KPOP world Then saw an image in a KPOP magazine and it said that the group's name was BOYFRIEND when they are promoting Don't Touch My Girl. When I saw the pic, I knew instantly that Kwangmin and Minwoo is mine!  :D And I saw a blondie and I thought "Why is he ugly? :P"  I know right!!! I think I'm the first person who call him ugly >.< Then I watched the MV and I thought "That blondie isn't as ugly as I thought it would be..."


   Then when they were promoting I'll Be There, I feel in love with their song! And when they starred in the W Academy, I just got attracted to them! Their personality is so funny especially Kwangmin's  ^_^ Then I found out that Youngmin is the older one. Well that's shocking :P 

Then Love came out, Kwangmin is sooo handsome!!! But when My Lady came out and also JANUS, I knew that my soulmate is Youngmin  :wub: 


Hope you enjoy my stowie ^_^

Just go with the flow~
