If something grows on you, it gradually becomes more pleasurable or acceptable to you. You begin to enjoy it more and more as you become accustomed to/ get used to it. If you like something or someone that you didn’t like at first, it has grown on you.

2. You can say that a culture or a place grows on you, the more you become familiar with and comfortable in your new surroundings.
3. South Korean movies have really grown on me. Until a few years ago I had never watched any, but since I saw “Windstruck” (2004), I have downloaded and watched a number of others. They have a great way of combining comedy and drama. Click here if you'd like the download torrent for "Windstruck".
