My Bias List – part 3

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!

So… here we go!

#2: Super Junior

SJ! Like dis!

What can I say about Super Junior? I just love them and all their pairings and fanservice. Super Junior is a group that really moves my heart. Behind all their success and fame, there are many broken hearts of ELFs that have shared Super Junior’s pain over the years. SuJu is one of the most disfortunate groups in k-pop because of the most many horrible thingd that have happened to them: you know… things that I won’t go into in the post.

But they are also one of the most fortunate groups in all of k-pop~ their success is shown by their countless mutizens around and hit songs, album sales, the title of  being the first asian artist to hold a solo concert in France, performing all over the world in venues like; Madison Square Garden, Tokyo Dome. They are also the owner of what is arguably thr best k-pop song in HISTORY: Sorry Sorry.

Damn, there’s so much to talk about with Super Junior. I love that they are like the kings of fanservice. Noone can do fanservice like SuJu can. My favourite couple in EunHae. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…

 Oh! SnAp! Did I just go too far by putting loads of Super Junior porn all up in this post lolol. But seriously, no other group in kpop can do what Super Junior do when it comes to fan service. They truly amaze me into a whole other fiction world. It’s just so real for me… oddeohke

Member bias: Siwon and Heechul

Out of all the 13 (+2) members of Super Junior my absolute two biases have to be Siwon and Heechul. Although I do love all the members of Super Junior and Ryeowook and Donghae do follow closely behind. SiChul who are tied in first place on my SuJu bias list.

The Very Controversial Member Award goes to: Kim Heechul. I don’t know if Heenim is actually bi-curious or what but I can see that he thoroughly enjoys his extreme fanservice that he gives us on stage. Heechul is VERY entertaining in many ways, and VERY beautiful lol. I remember watching SuJu on ‘Come To Play’ where the members voted Heechul as the weirdest member (Yesung following closely behind) and I totally agreed. But he is just EPIC! Through everything he’s come through, through the years from even losing his passion to be a singer, he still carried on as a member because he loves his fellow Super Junior family and his Petals (holla!) so that’s why I love him. I don’t think there’s anyone on this planet like Kim Heechul. He’s quite like me in that sense lol.

And the Hottie McHottie Member Award goes to… Choi Siwon! Yes, like everyone who knows Siwon whether they are a male or female, they will admit that Choi Siwon is completely SEXY!

He seems to love his gay-fanservice aswell (even though it is kind of a sin…lol) just like he loves his shirtless-fanservice. He just really loves his fangirls.

On top of his sexiness, I really do love Siwon as a person. And as a Christian myself, I really love that he is a strong Christian man, sometimes even sings gospel songs at SuJu concerts. I think that’s really cool of him. Siwon also seems quite childish aswell, that’s another thing I love cuz it’s just so funny sometimes. How he’ll laugh at EunHae messing about with eachother or something…

Talking about his talent, I never fail to be AMAZED by his acting. I watched the drama ‘Oh! My Lady’ just for him and I loved him even more after that. I highly highly HIGHLY recommend that drama ~ if you haven’t already seen it. It is AWESOME!

I think that Siwon will make the perfect husband …and daddy.

Favourite song:  ‘Sorry Sorry’

Like I said before, SJ’s ‘Sorry Sorry’ is arguably the best k-pop song EVER! In my opinion, although my favourite song is forever changing all the time, nothing can beat ‘Sorry Sorry’. That song is just a BAD-ASS-EXTREME-EPIC song.

It was actually one of the first songs that I heard when I got into k-pop, so it means quite a lot to me. Everytime I hear it, I can’t help but sing along and dance along (unless I’m in public, cuz then I will do it in my head). It is one of the four songs I first ever got up and learnt that dance to; along with SNSD’s Gee and Genie and Brown Eyed Girls’s Abracadabra. I kind of failed at it and I can’t remember most of the dance moves but I don’t think I have ever seen a cover of that dance that any one has done perfectly. It’s just one of the awesome but very very difficult dances and that the only way to perfect that dance would be to spend months and months training with the original choreographers. It blows my mind how the choreographers came up with those extraordinary dance steps when they listened to that song. That dance is just as EPIC as the song, it has sweeped across all nations. Ei’m sure you’ve all seen that videos of those inmates dancing to Sorry Sorry 😀

If ‘Sorry Sorry’ is not the best k-pop song ever, then it’s surely the most famous, right? There’s is not one k-pop fan that does not know that song; even if they are not a Super Junior fan. Everyone loves ‘Sorry Sorry’. It’s also the song that transferred Super Junior from boys to men. Just face it, Super Junior definitely BLEW UP when they started promoting that song. The mutizens and tears show it all.

And that’s why ‘Sorry Sorry’ is my favourite song by the legendary Super Junior.

So uh… here we are again, make sure to tell me you’re bias list in the comments below. I want to hear the ELF on this one. If you like, you can answer the questions: Who is the top 5 in your bias list? Bias group – bias members – favourite song.

Leave your answers in the comments below. I would LOVE to read your bias lists so  please tell me, arraseo?
