☆ fascination  陶酔
Fascination is the state of being greatly interested in or delighted by something. Here are some example sentences:
He’s had a lifelong fascination with space and always wanted to be an astronaut.
Ancient Greece has a mysterious fascination over me.
What’s the fascination with trains?
The last sentence is a common way to use today’s word. If you see a group of people fascinated by something, “What’s the fascination with X?” is a good way to find out why so many people are interested in X. For me, many of my friends are not runners, and so they often ask me, “What’s the fascination with running?” Of course, I don’t know the answer… so I just say, “I just like running.” 🙂
