Oh My Gosh ~ EXO were featured in Inkigayo magazine and I just love the way that they described Kai!
“He makes eye contact with everyone in the audience on a regular basis and he doesn’t hesitate to express his affection with his cool and low voice that makes you want him to speak more… The best way to describe the charms of Kai is “undefinable”.”

EXO were featured in the June 2012 issue of Inkigayo magazine.

Check out Kai‘s part here…

Kai

Birthdate : 1994. 1. 14

Blood Type :  A

Psychic Powers : Teleportation

Position : Main Dancer

Speciality : Dance (ballet, jazz, hip hop, popping, locking)

How many singers are capable to give a dramatic feeling with their dance are there? There is no other word but “art” to use to describe the god-given aptitude Kai possesses. When he gets on stage, his unique dreamlike gaze gets wild, you can see a dark aura coming from him. Moreover, if you look at his appearance capable to make a puppet of his fans, you would think he and the maknae Sehun do ‘oppa cosplay’. Even with his pokerface that gives a strong impression and makes it impossible to know what’s inside of him, this man is surprisingly famous for his breathtaking fan service…

My Complete BIAS List (Top 20)

20 Jun

My Bias List..

KPOP Terminology: “Bias”: the favourite group a kpop fan has or the favourite member of said group the kpop fan has 🙂

This is a concept that kpoppers get very excited when talking about it. The list of top favourite groups and their biases from those groups. This subject is something that I find very interesting when hearing about others’ bias lists and I always have fun sharing mine on the internet in some form. I’ve never done it in full though, so as someone who loves a wide spectrum of k-pop groups, my bias list is long but I will only explain my absolute top groups that I follow the most and love the most and get me excited the most! The rest I will include in a less detailed form.

My bias list will include my fav groups (from most favourite to least favourite); my bias in that group and my favourite song from that group.

So… here we go!

___________________________________________________

What’s the deal with SS501?

15 Jun

Side note: SS501 fans, please don’t hate me. I wrote this post because I was interested in the whole situation of SS501 since I first got into k-pop  a few years ago. Although I don’t listen to SS501’s music, I still cannot even figure out if they are popular/famous or not. So please, of you are a fan tell me after reading this post 🙂

So this will be more of a question for you all. Like, what’s the deal with SS501?

I still can’t work out whether they are popular or not. I even did a little research on them and found out they are completely split into different companies but aparently are not disbanded? And they debuted in 2005 so they’ve been around for quite some time (same year as Super Junior). SS501 were one of the first groups I ever heard about when I got into k-pop. I continuously heard about them, I think becuase they are like 2nd Generation k-pop. But just being a k-pop fan I could tell that SS501 weren’t that popular. I thought they would be since they’ve been going since even before groups like Big Bang and Super Junior but I can definitely tell their popularity is NO WHERE NEAR the likes of Big Bang and Super Junior. SS501 aren’t going on big Asia tours like some of their juniors are.

I know Kim Hyun Joongs quite popular because he was in Boys Before Flowers which is considered to be a classic Korean drama but he isn’t that popular because I remember despite having all that popularity and two awesome songs last year: ‘Break Down’ and Please’, he didn’t win loads of mutizens in his 2011 round of promotions.

The other members aren’t that talked about like Kim Hyun Joong is. I only know Kim Hyung Joon because he is the older brother of the former U-Kiss member, Kim Kibum 😦 and he has a very similar name to Kim Hyun Joong so it’s very easy to remember his name. LOL!

I don’t know if SS501 were just as active and talked about as groups like SHINee or a group like that when they were still together but please tell in the comments below if you know because SS501 are very interesting. And if they are not disbanded when exactly are they going to promote together again?

If you know the answer to the SS501 dilemma, or are a fan of them, please tell me in the comments below.

Thanks! 😀

My Bias List – part 3

14 Jun

My Bias List..

KPOP Terminology: “Bias”: the favourite group a kpop fan has or the favourite member of said group the kpop fan has 🙂

This is a concept that kpoppers get very excited when talking about it. The list of top favourite groups and their biases from those groups. This subject is something that I find very interesting when hearing about others’ bias lists and I always have fun sharing mine on the internet in some form. I’ve never done it in full though, so as someone who loves a wide spectrum of k-pop groups, my bias list is long but I will only explain my absolute top groups that I follow the most and love the most and get me excited the most! The rest I will include in a less detailed form.

My bias list will include my fav groups (from most favourite to least favourite); my bias in that group and my favourite song from that group.

So… here we go!

 #3: EXO

EXO tteona oneul bame!

Right now, I’m like completely and utterly obsessed with EXO. Like you would think that they’re #1 on my bias list becuase they have totally changed my life around. I was never even like this when I actually acted as a hardcore VIP, but from a further perspective, BIGBANG are still my further number one (even though I really don’t like their sudden change in style) and EXO come 3rd on my bias list probably because I still have a way so to go in growing with EXO. It is actually a fear that EXO really will become #1 someday. I actually do not want that to happen. But  if Big Bang venture away from what made me fall in love with them in the first place, then…

But ANYWAY! It’s time to talk about why I love EXO so much!

From that day back in January 2011, when SM released news about a new upcoming boy group with the code name ‘M1’ I knew that they were going to be HUGE! Just looking at how quickly SHINee rose to pure success, and then the whole timing of EXO, as the Hallyu wave was getting bigger and more wide spread, I just know that EXO were going to be even more successful in even less time than thier seniors SHINee.

We heard a bit more news from SM about this M1; the whole splitting to promote in China and Korea at the same time, I admit, I didn’t really like that idea, but I still know I was gonna support them because being trainees of SM, I knew EXO were gonna be amazing dancers and singers and just EPIC!

By the time SM released the very first teaser (Kai)… THAT WAS IT! I had been totally convinced that EXO were going to be the greatest group in HISTORY (pun intended)! I remember fangirling about how Kai must be the dancing machine of EXO and how totally looked like a more manly version of SHINee’s Taemin! And I LOVE Taemin; so it was just awesome!

 By the second teaser with Kai and Luhan, I was practically WORSHIPPING the group. The way the two of them danced in sync like that was just amazing. Then Tao came out with the third teaser. I thought he was some Kung Fu master being from China and all. I remember being so hyped up after that I was writing in my diary, that I’d put him up for a fight with Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan and he would win! Crazy, but Tao in that teaser, really impressed me.

Throughout the period where all the teasers were released I just completely fell in love with Kai and I remember everyone started to dislike him because he appeared in more teasers than everyone else. But I think that’s not right to be that way, even though some members like XiuMin, Chanyeol and Chen should’ve definitely had more teasers, most of the teasers were dancing and Kai is the dancing machine, so he obviously would appear in more. I don’t think SM was favouriting him like people said, afterall, ALL members of EXO are unbelievably BEAUTIFUL.

But anyway, moving away from the teasers and onto EXO as a fully established debuted group. All 12 members just seem like absolute perfection to me (even though Luhan seems a little evil sometimes…). All the pairings and shippings ~ GAH!!!! EXO are definitely an SM Entertainment group.

The music video for ‘MAMA’ was thr greatest music video in kpop HISTORY! Lol. I love how they all have super powers and their symbols that match their super powers. Their talent is even better than I though it would be, with the dancing and D.O. and Chen’s vocals. Even though I don’t understand what they are singing unless I look up the English translations, I can actually feel their singing and that is just an amazing ability to deliver such emotion through your singing like that. D.O. and Chen are definitely my favourite vocals in EXO.

EXO are GREAT!

EXO will be LEGENDS!

Favourite song: MAMA

“MAMA” *raises hand to the sky to imitate worshipping EXO.*

Lolol. This song. Man. This song is just EPIC! From the day it was performed at EXO’s showcase in Korea to this day, it has just not gotten old. Usually I would not be able to listen to a song everyday like that and not get  bored of it. There’s something about this song where you just love it more and more everyday. It’s very very different from other k-pop songs. It incorporates different genres and it talks about a serious issue about how we as humans have become towards one another. Usually k-pop songs are about love/crushes and it’s hard to find a really deep and meaningful song like this. Also, the fact that the song was composed by the legendary Yoo Young Jin makes it even better. For those who don’t know him by his name, he is just the greatest producer in the whole WORLD; he created the magic of many SM hits like ‘Sorry Sorry’ and many many more and is the creator of that famous SMP sound of SM Entertainment. I LOVE YOO YOUNG JIN ❤

On a side note, I remember when I first heard ‘MAMA’, it reminded me of Super Junior’s ‘Don’t Don’ :3 Lol. I really really love the song, I think it’s just an absolutely EPIC song for EXO to have debuted with. It’s sounds equally awesome in both Chinese and Korean.

Member Bias: Kai ♥♥♥♥

*sighs* My husband, Kai. That’s right ~ he’s mine! Lol!

I could really go on talking about Kai, but really… I’ve written a lot on the last two sections of this post, so I will purposefully make this one short. ^^First of all, isn’t he so beautiful. It didn’t take me long before I was totally obsessed with him. From the first teaser, I just thought he was really cute and looked like Taemin, very soon after that, his dancing and sexiness just made me fall in love, and then I saw how cute he was in his personality. He’s a completely different person to how he is on stage. He has so much charisma and is so intense when he gets in the zone to perform on stage and the way he plays with the fangirls. Then just normally, he’s just the cutest thing. The way he gets embarassed so easily.  From the showcases up until now, I feel like I’ve watched him grow along with the other members and it’s just awesome to take this journey with them all side by side as a devoted fan. I am really impressed with his dancing skills. The way he moves is like he’s just flowing and it’s like he’s one with the music when he dances; because every move he makes matches the music perfectly.

You can see that quite well in this clip of his practice with Gregory Hwang and Eunhyuk for the SM Orchestra dance.

On top of that, his dancing is just really interesting and entertaining to watch. And that’s a big thing that caught my eye in the early days of knowing Kai. Also… he’s just so beautiful. He’s really handsome, and sexy and cute at the same time and the way he shows that when he’s on stage makes me CRAZY. I really don’t know anyone like Kai. He just AMAZES ME!

Kim Jong In ♥
