Look like their idol

Beg those babalawos in your Instagram DMs to change your looks. If they can’t help, perm your hair, comb it out, and pray to your ancestors. If everything else fails, maybe the thought will count. 

Get into K-drama.

How do you think you’ll be able to have a conversation with them if you’ve never seen any k-drama? Even if you want to cheat in an exam, you will read small na. Also, don’t just watch the popular ones. Try watching the not-so-popular ones for extra points.
