I got swept into the scene around then as well. TVXQ swayed me over from my Visual Kei (which is such a stereotype, it's hilarious). I likewise fell out of it and then, just tried to stick my head back in not too long ago and was completely overtaken. There are so many new bands!
I totally like Block B though. "LOL" has pretty much been on repeat for the last week, haha.
Here's a kpop fan! I got into it about two years ago and now it's pretty much all I listen to. Bigbang is my favourite group (I'm so Jiyong biased heh), but recently I've gotten into B1A4 aka Bilasa and EXO. :3 U-Kiss boys definitely have a special place in my heart too, they seem so sweet! From the girl groups I mostly listen to 2NE1 and Girl's Day.
I also listen to a lot of korean indie bands like Clazziquai and Nell, though I don't know if Nell can be called indie anymore since they're quite popular now.
In addition to the songs suggested, you should listen & watch videos of Super Junior KRY : In My Dream & Infinite : Can U Smile they're really cute ballads~ If you want something more energetic & since you're already familiar with SHINee, check out Sherlock, Replay, or Hello. Basically listen & watch SHINee mvs. xD DEFINITELY DEFINITELY LISTEN TO SHINEE'S WOWOWOW. It's a bit too autotuned but it's a super adorable song just to listen to, and knowing the lyrics... just adorbssssss~~. In fact, here's a link to it already : [link] xD (I just really like this song. xD) Hope you like it too~
Try Shinee - 1000 years always by your side..................one of my ultimate favorite songs......has an awesome MV.............the song really touches you. Do try it.Try Big Bang - Blue & Koe Wo Kikasete. Hope you like them.
Oh! I figured it out last night. TVXQ's Humanoid got released recently. And Jaejoong from JYJ released his single titled MINE a few weeks back. But they used to be so good................MIROTIC still remains one of my favorite songs till date!
