How did you find out about VIXX?: The first time I saw VIXX was the music video for "ETERNITY" from VIXX's 4th single album. I became a Starlight after the fan meeting "VIXX wish you be my starlight new year party 2015". l canceled my new year trip to join this meeting. I am very proud of them; they are the king of concepts.
How did you find out about My Music Taste?: I found out about MyMusicTaste via Facebook fan page from the activity for Infinite (Make INFINITE in Bangkok). I wanted to bring VIXX to Thailand too, so I made a VIXX in Bangkok event and told my friend to join it on Facebook and Twitter.
Tell us your favorite VIXX song!: I love all of VIXX’ songs. My favorite one is “My Light” because VIXX sings this song for Starlights.

How did you find out about VIXX?: I first saw Leo as a back dancer for Brian Joo - Let this die in 2012. At that time, I didn't know his name, but I liked the way he danced and thought "if the dancer was an idol, I would be his fan!''. When VIXX debuted, I didn't recognize Leo, but when I started liking their song 'Rock ur body', I started searching all about VIXX and found out that the dancer that I liked was Leo! From there, I became a Starlight till now and forever.
How did you find out about MyMusicTaste?: I found out about MyMusicTaste from my friend. She shared the campaign of other idol on instagram, then I joined it and searchd for VIXX's campaign.
Your favorite VIXX song!: 'Love letter' and 'Thank you for being born' are so touching.
What are you most excited about VIXX fan meeting tour?: To start, I like VIXX; I never see or meet them in person. So I'm of course very excited to meet them in this fan meeting. Also, having a photo group with VIXX is such a miracle for me. Thank u MyMusisTaste for giving me the most precious gift.
What did you do to become one of Top 10 TasteMakers?: The first time I joined VIXX'S campaign, the TasteMakers werw only 20 people. During that time, I searched Indonesian Starlights to join VIXX's campaign, shared the campaign all over social media accounts that I have and all groups for Starlights I joined, I did the mission every day. That way, I reached the 1st place.
Any words to the other TasteMakers and Starlights?: To all TasteMakers: Don't ever give up to bring your idol to your country. Just believe that time will become true someday. To Starlight: Let's make VIXX shine more, and let's have fun at the fan meeting!
How did you find out about VIXX?: I was actually an INSPIRIT (and still an INSPIRIT) before I became a ST☆RLIGHT as well. So, at the end of 2015, I was watching a variety show where Sungkyu became a temporary host for an episode with VIXX as the guest. Because of Kim Sungkyu, I got hit by "Lesinset" ("Once you start caring about Leo, it's game set."), and I could not escape. hahaha! I started listening to their music and watch their MVs. Their music really suits my likings, and the different concepts they had in every comebacks had really left me in awe. VIXX is really the best concept-dols in Korea. So, I would like to thank Kim Sungkyu for opening the door to being a ST☆RLIGHT for me :D
How did you find out about MyMusicTaste? I found MyMusicTaste from a band's Facebook page. They actually encouraged us to MAKE their concert happen through MMT. It was the first MMT campaign that I joined.
Tell us your favorite VIXX song! 지금 우린 (Us Now) ♡ It is one of the sweetest song that I know of. The lyrics, the music, their voices... Everything about the song is just sweet and soothing.
What are you most excited about VIXX fan meeting tour? Everything! I will really enjoy every second of it! Actually, if it was a concert, I would answer "Watching N dance gracefully in front of me." However, I don't think he will be dancing at a fan meeting... or will he? Anyway, I will enjoy every moment of the fan meeting
What did you do to become one of Top 10 TasteMakers?: I actually started earlier than most people. I joined the campaign in July 2016, and there were only a few people who were actively doing the daily mission. I don't really have many followers on social media, and I wasn't able to get a whole bunch of TasteMakers to join the campaign. However, I gained lots of points from completing the daily missions every day, so start early! ♡
Any words to the other TasteMakers and Starlights?:
To all TasteMakers, there are 3 things that you'll need to do on a daily basis:
1. Complete the daily missions
2. Promote your campaign
3. Pray hard
Don't worry if there are no more than 10 TasteMakers supporting the campaign right now because the number will grow. Besides, you get to stock-up your points before everybody else does ;)
How did you find out about VIXX?: I am actually a big fan of k-drama before I became a kpop fan. In December 2013, My Love From The Stars drama was really famous in Korea, and surprisingly I got to know VIXX from that drama. The main actor is Kim Soohyun, and netizens kept saying VIXX N looks like Kim Soohyun. So I became curious - who is VIXX N? Are they really look alike? So from there I began to search who N and VIXX were. Since then I started following VIXX on Twitter and watching all variety shows from their debut like MyDOL, VIXXTV, VIXX MTV Diary, Plan V Diary, VIXX File and VIXX One Fine Day. I became an active Starlight since “Eternity” till now. That was my first time experienced new things like having to wait at 12AM KST for tracklist, image and mv teaser release on their official Twitter. Thanks to VIXX, I have made many friends in and outside Malaysia, and til this day, we still meet and gather to celebrate VIXX’s birthday. On June 14, 2015, I met VIXX for the first time during 2015 K-Pop World Festival event. VIXX came as a special judge. I was so happy because I finally met my favorite kpop idol after following them on Twitter only. VIXX is really a hardworking idol who always makes Starlights proud of them. I have learned lot of things from VIXX, and I feel like I have become more open and mature. I am always surprised at how VIXX has developed their title as Concept Idol. For each comeback, they always have a different concept that amazes you. VIXX has become a trend since “Chained Up” because of their sexy outfits and chokers. Nowadays lots of male idols wear like that. I am sure VIXX must be proud because their goal is to be the trend.
How did you find out about MyMusicTaste?: I found about MyMusicTaste on Twitter in 2016. So I started making for VIXX and did the mission every day. At first, I don’t believe if MMT really could bring an artist to any country. Then, I saw MMT already brought many artists to other countries.
Tell us your favorite VIXX song!: To be honest, there are too many to list, but the most favorite is “Love Letter” because it’s a song VIXX always sings in every concert. Every time they sing it, both VIXX and Starlights would cry because of the surprise event and also they remember how much they have achieved till now. For title track, “On and On” is my favorite. VIXX always says it’s their debut song because they got the title as Concept Idol when they did this vampire concept. For a side track, my favorites are “Love Me Do” and “Desperate” from their 2016 Conception.
What are you most excited about VIXX fan meeting tour?: VIXX is finally coming back to Malaysia after 3 years since their 1st Global Showcase on October 21, 2013. I am really looking forward to this fan meeting. I am so happy and thankful for MMT because they are bringing them here. I really cannot wait to see them perform LIVE and also have some talks or games with fans. Thank you MMT for making it happen.
What did you do to become one of Top 10 TasteMakers?: I am glad I became one of Top 10 TasteMakers. From the first, I kept sharing the link on Twitter, Facebook and even with my friends. I also mentioned it on VIXX Malaysian Fanbase so that all Starlights could MAKE and complete daily mission together. Because of that, this campaign became viral. Each time we achieved and unlocked the campaign status, I would post it on Twitter, mention other K-pop accounts and encourage them to MAKE and do daily mission together.
Any words to the other TasteMakers and Starlights?: Congratulations to Top10 TasteMakers, other TasteMakers and also Starlights for making and doing the daily mission together!! Our non-stop promotion of the campaign is finally achieved. I hope Starlights who are going to this fan meeting can enjoy and have fun with VIXX! Let’s make beautiful memories together with VIXX!
How did you find out about VIXX?: I started liking VIXX since 24/11/2012 when they first time came to Malaysia for Shout Award and fan meeting. I was very curious about them so I searched them on YouTube. I watched Super Hero & Rock Ur Body MV's and found them kind of good and cute. So I clicked the recommended videos which was VIXX TV Ep. 4 and found this blonde guy (Ken/Jaehwan) so cute, so I started searching for him in all VIXX TV's episodes. I ended up watching all VIXX TV and VIXX Diary episodes. Ken has become my no. 1 favorite artist until this moment. I follow their steps one by one since then. I still remember when they won first place for Voodoo Doll on KBS Music Bank - I cried so hard watching it live alone in my dorm. They really deserve it so much. They work so hard to achieve their dreams and get the trophy for us, St★rlight. I have never felt so loved by an idol before VIXX. I can really feel the sincerity that the love is not one-sided. Their love towards St★rlight is different from other groups’. They have grown so much since debut. All potential is almost revealed. Members start composing songs, doing musicals, acting in dramas and movies, and having solo promotion and all. They really did so well in everything. I am really thankful that I know them since early days. They help me so much get through my life during my hard times, slumps and depression days. They make my day brighter and happier more than I ever felt before. They actually saved me. If I get a chance to thank them personally, I really wanna say thank you so much for existing, being VIXX, and giving me all the love and happiness. If I didn't know them, I don't think I can be here writing this. Thank you so much, and I love you guys. Let's make all our dreams come true! 화이팅!
How did you find out about My Music Taste?: I first discovered about MyMusicTaste from a local VIXX fanbase through email sent on 19/07/2016 asking if I am interested in bringing VIXX to Malaysia after I filled a survey they sent earlier. They shared a MyMusicTaste link, and I made it then shared on every platform I have, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. It was still at grey stage that time.
Tell us your favorite VIXX song!: Tell us your favorite VIXX song! To be very honest, it is so hard for me to choose a song as a favorite because I love all songs! All albums! All eras! Everyone asked it but the answer will stay the same. Every time new songs come out, I was like "This is gonna be my jam!". Yes. Every single time. Repeating all VIXX songs on playlist is my daily routine.
What are you most excited about VIXX fan meeting tour?: The fact that my country Malaysia is included in the SEA tour already makes me so excited, and honestly I cried when MyMusicTaste announced it. I have been supporting them since 2012 and also went to Milky Way showcase in 2013 and Kpop World Festival in 2015 when VIXX come here as the judge. They are so stunning and good looking in real life. They always show full energy, enthusiasm and playfulness on stage! It has been a very long time since I saw them perform live. I cannot wait to experience it again with my St★rlight friends that I found in the past 2 years. They have become my family and best friends. It will be the best memory of my life. I want to thank MyMusicTaste so much for making my dream come true and for the VIP1 ticket for me to enjoy their performance upfront!
What did you do to become one of Top 10 Taste Makers?: To make this campaign viral is very hard. Most fans don't believe that this is going to work but I keep sharing and updating the status of the daily mission. I always remind them to do the mission every day. I would never stop participating until we got to the next stage, and on February of this year, MyMusicTaste upgraded the interference, and our status became “contacted the artist's management”. I was so shocked and excited. This is Malaysian St★rlight's chance to make this real! I continuously checked the status and participated in the daily mission every single day until I became the top 2 TasteMaker. It was worth every second I spent to reach there. Finally I am going to meet them this July!
Any words to the other Taste Makers and Starlights?: To all TasteMakers and my St★rlight friends and sisters: our dream will finally come true! Let's enjoy the show that we have been waiting for so long and give all your hearts and love to them! Show VIXX they have so many St★rlight in Malaysia that have been supporting, loving and missing them so much all this time. Be the well-behaved fans that they are proud of. Always work hard to help them reach all their and our dreams! Let's see each other for a very long time! 오래보자!
