How everyone got into JPop music?

I don't know when exactly was the first time Japan entertainment come to my country, but I fell in love with it after watching Japanese dorama Long Vacation starred Kimura Takuya. The theme song La La La Love Song by Kubota Toshinobu also sounds good.
After that, I started to seek for more Japan music.. My love for JPop grew bigger after I heard Hikki's First Love, and it was also a theme song of a dorama that broadcasted in my country :XD: So we can say first time I got into JPop music was bcoz of dorama tie in.

I heard My Will by Dream from Inuyasha early on, and liked that. I was about 14 at the time. A friend sent me a few Ayumi Hamasaki eurobeat remixes and Four Seasons by Namie Amuro, and I soon downloaded ALL FOR YOU, COME, and GIRL TALK. However, the first Japanese music I truly became a fan of was that of BeForU (and its lead singer, Riyu Kosaka), a now disbanded group which had a few songs in DDR, beatmaniaIIDX, GF&DM, etc. I'm still a big Bemani fan today and follow the members solo projects somewhat :bingo:

By accident.

I was browsing thru YesAsia website for some Cpop music when I saw this ad for Ayumi Hamasaki A Complete album. Then I fell in love with her.

And yes, I found alan by accident too, thru youtube via avex channel. lol!

It was a loooong time ago when my brother had it on his computer! I was introduced to J-POP in '99 with ayu's song "Depend on you"! :) So through out middle school and high school, I was listening to J-Pop! ^_^ So, most people's J-POP start was anime, mine was my older brother! XDD So, I knew Ayu sang Dearest when everyone else didn't! :D

Through Kingdom Hearts. I liked Hikki's Simple & Clean so I downloaded some of her other stuff. I was really surprised when she suddenly started singing Japanese XD

I saw ayu's picture somewhere on the internet and thought she's european (cause of her huge eyes) and then found out her name (realized she's japanese lol) and downloaded some songs (randomly) and surprised... I mean, at first I thought she's a horrible singer (I heard material from her first 3 albums) but it got stuck on me, like I felt the need to listen to it again... and again... and became my drug.

I picked out Utada Hikaru's Addicted to You single at some cheap (and pirated) CD stall in Hong Kong when I was five...that's when it all began lol. Ayumi Hamasaki came next.

When I was around 14 I had a phase where I was kind of addicted to AMV (Anime Music Videos XD;; ). Anyway, one AMV I watched used Ayu's Memorial Address, and I just fell in love with it the moment I heard it. I replayed the video several times, and then I started searching for some place I could buy it. This somehow lead me to YesAsia, where I ordered the Memorial Address mini-album.
