[Rerun] What I Love About Bi, IX: His Dance Skill

I think one of Bi’s more obvious talents is his dancing skill. Have you ever seen someone that was doing all the choreographed moves, but it just seemed that their body just didn’t flow with those moves? Not so the case with Bi! He’s got an innate gift in dancing and sometimes he just amazes me. Please understand though, I grew up in America and have seen many great dancers, but I believe Bi is in a class of his own when it comes to entertainers in Asia (please don’t shoot me for my opinion!). He’s naturally athletic, and his body was made for dancing. Don’t know what I mean? Check out Bi gettin’ it crunk in the videos below:

Lee Taemin: Immortal Song II

Idol contestants,audience votes, new song renditions and battles by draw selection all put together form the basics behind the show Immortal Song II. Because I’m a total Korean everything YouTube Junkie I hooked you all up with an episode of the show. You’ll notice some familiar faces like SHInee’s Jonghyun, Super Juniors Yesung and BEAST member Yoseob ^_^

This season SHINee is getting another chance to make it into the winners circle with the participation of their maknae Lee Taemin! Ohh yeahhhh we’re gonna see Taemin take already popular songs and make them his own. I know the dancing will be good because he’s got that on lock (duh!) but what about the singing? It’s not like he’s bustin out lead vocals on a regular basis. Now I know he’s been practicing his singing; hes even filled in for Jonghyun while he was M.I.A for a performance of Lucifer ( He was def earning that paycheck pssh! The way Taemin was running around that stage you would have thought he was filling in for the whole group.)

But the question is will the lights go off on him? I personally don’t think so and I’m not saying it because of my total adoration for him. Taemin really has a unique beautiful tone to his voice. I think he’ll have no problem holding his own in the competition; What does everyone else think?

Han Geng: Life After Super Junior

The soft-spoken former Super Junior member with the adorable laugh had long since left the popular Korean boyband before I knew anything about him. But once I learned his story, I was moved and felt it deserved to be told here. Han Geng, 27, (pronounced “Hahn Gung”) was born in Heilongjiang, China to a businessman father and housewife mother. From a young age, he had dreams of becoming an entertainer, and later as a teenager, he was given the opportunity to train in singing, dancing and acting under SM Entertainment, South Korea’s largest entertainment company. Geng moved to South Korea all by himself, and so his story with Super Junior began. Read all about his time before, during and after Super Junior here. If I thought it necessary, I would rehash all the ugly details of the suffering he endured, illnesses he developed and lawsuit he brought against SM, but that would be beating a dead horse. The good news is that he stood up, fought for his human rights, succeeded and is now thriving in China as an actor, singer and model. Whether he belongs to Super Junior or not, his countryfolk love him regardless, and they’ve been nothing but supportive since his return. He is known for being incredibly generous, and urges his fans to donate money and material things (that they would normally send to him as gifts) to his favourite charities to help fight hunger and poverty in China.

I don’t know why Han Geng’s story has touched me so deeply, but I can tell you that out of all of the guys that have been featured on this blog, Geng has definitely become one of my favourite. Let’s keep an eye on him and wish him the best with his career and future endeavors. 🙂

Super Junior Series I: Eunhyuk & Donghae

This is the first installment of the “Super Junior Series”. Over the next few weeks BOAB and I will both be introducing you all to the members and activities of Super Junior because we love them! I’m gonna lead off the series with Eunhyuk and Donghae because right now I’m currently addicted to their new single “Oppa, Oppa”.

Lee Hyuk-jae: Eunhyuk – Age 25

In SuJu I have 3 bias and they are Kim Heechul, Leeteuk and Eunhyuk. I absolutely 100% love Eunhyuk. I think he is totally adorable, super sweet and he’s funny too. What I love about him is his balance of nerdy and sexy. It really annoys me how he’s said to be the most unattractive member of Super Junior…UMMM Who exactly are they lookin at cuz its def not my Eunhyuk! I can think TWO yes TWO other SuJu members that fit the bill as the most unattractive -_- You know he was even told not to smile and if he does smile cover it up because it makes him ugly. Apparently someone is off their meds because Eunhyuks smile is super adorable and so is his nose. Anywayz Eunhyuk not only sings but he’s one of SuJu’s main rappers and dancers. He is super sexy when he dances and I will even go as far as saying he’s better than Lee Taemin. If you want to challenge my assessment fine, but head to Youtube and school yourself on his skills before talkin smack ^_^ He’s hosted a number of programs, He’s best friends with JYJ’s Junsu and he’s also a member of Super Juniors sub groups M, T, and Happy.

Lee Donghae – Age 25

Donghae has to be the coolest SuJu member; he’s suave, he’s got attitude and he looks amazing in a suit. Whether he’s raising one brow and gripping a random rope around his neck (Mr. Simple MV) or holding a glowing flower while flexing his amazing arms (Bonamana MV) he’s always sexy. I still to this day cant figure out his personality but what I do know is he’s extremely talented. Not only a singer or one of SuJu’s main dancers, he’s also a songwriter and actor. He’s composed songs with One Way’s chance, acted in the dramas ‘Its ok Daddy’s girl’ and ‘Skip Beat’ and is the brand ambassador for Maxim Contact Lenses (randommm). He belongs to SuJu’s subgroup M and a funny side note; he, SHINee’s Jonghyun and F(x)’s Amber are known as the “Dino Family” for their striking resemblance not only to each other but to dinosaurs.

Both Eunhyuk and Donghae are actually best friends and together they released the single ‘Oppa, Oppa’. It’s a fun disco infused song that gets repeated a million times while I’m working out ^_^ Make sure to peep not only SuJu’s Soul Train line battle between Yesung and Ryeowook but also the random black chick the camera focuses on in the audience. Seriously I was shocked!

K-Kisses! KrisE

Introducing Kai

Oh I absolutely love 2012 already! So many new groups debuting including SM Entertainments EXO-K and EXO-M. As usual there’s a cryptic meaning behind the name so let me explain. EXO as in EXOPLANET as in stars from another planet. EXO-K for the Korean group and EXO-M for Mandarin because yes they will have a Chinese group. Now I usually don’t talk about the new groups but this one is intriguing because of their member Kai.

Its unknown at the moment if he belongs to K or M I’m thinking M although I secretly want him to be in K. Whats so interesting about this guy is not only is he absolutely gorgeous but uhh doesn’t he remind you anyone? You know who I’m talking about! That other super gorgeous guy from SM. Thats right!  SHINee’s Lee Taemin!

Stats on Kai – He’s 17, over 6ft tall and he’s a well-rounded dancer in locking, popping, hip hop even ballet.

Should Taemin be worried? Check out the teaser video and gallery of Kai and let me know what you think!

K-Kisses! KrisE

Homegrown Hottie: Jay Park

I talked about homegrown hotties in my last post on the SME Global Auditions. The men were ultra sexy and deserve to have the spotlight shined on them, individually. The first homegrown hottie is none other than Jay Park. Jay, who was born and raised in Washington State, showed an early interest in the hip-hop culture, specifically b-boying. For those who don’t know, a b-boy is someone who break-dances. He auditioned for JYP when he was 17 and was brought to Korea to undergo what I like to call “Idol Training”. Idol Training is for all budding kpop artist. They undergo months, if not years of dance and singing lessons. Since Jay was a Korean-American, he also had to receive Korean language and cultural lessons.

In 2008, 2PM debut with Jay Park as their leader and quickly rose to fame.
Jay would eventually have to withdraw from 2PM due to some controversial comments against Korea he posted on his Myspace page. I personally think the netizens blew it out of proportion. How would they feel if they had to leave their home and live a new country where they didn’t know the language or have any friends. JYP released him from his contract and he returned to the States. He made his comeback through Youtube by posting videos of himself break dancing and singing. In 2010 he returned to Korea and in April of 2011, he released a mini-album as a solo artist. He plans on releasing a full length album in January 2012. As you can see from the pictures, Jay Park looks good in and out of clothes but good grief, please raise your hand if you want to see more pictures with him shirt-less. 🙂

Lee Taemin: You’re Legal, Lets Mingle

I feel the need to indulge in Taemin tonight just because wellll he’s Taemin, he’s part of my favorite group SHINee and I want him it’s really that simple.

Why do I find him so great? Well when he turns his head and his neck is all exposed and you can see the adams apple, that neck bone thingy and his freakin jaw line its called “being sexy without trying”. He’s got those really pouty lips and a seriously cute mischievous smile. His eyes are soo pretty and kind; really you can look into his eyes and just tell he’s as sweet as candy. Then of course the way he dances is hot as hell. Like dude seriously where did you learn to move your hips like that and then have the nerve to make THAT face?! You all know the face I’m talking about and if you don’t well obviously you havent watched Taemin bust a move enough so peep the video below.

My favorite part about Taemin is his age and his innocence. He’s a blank slate so its only natural that I feel the need to write alll overr that slate and make him my own personal Taeminnie!

K-Kisses! KrisE (Personal KPOP Radio:MBLAQ ‘Stay’)

[M/V] Arashi – Monster

Five piece J-pop boyband Arashi (meaning “storm” in Japanese) has recently released an album with “Monster” as their first single. “Monster” is not my favourite song, but I’m willing to give it a few more tries. Some may argue that it is not as good as the songs being spit out by the well-oiled machine that is K-pop, but I really don’t think that comparing J-pop to K-pop is comparing apples to apples. We’re talking comparing apples to some exotic, unknown, weird-tasting fruit only available in its native country, which is some remote island that you can only reach during certain times of the year by boat (and you gotta climb a 40-ft tree to pick). Yeah, two totally different things. At any rate: Enjoy and let me know your thoughts!
P.S. – Having MatsuJun as the lead singer is an added bonus. He’s *gorgeous*! 😉

[M/V] Kim Hyun Joong – Lucky Guy

So we’ve come full circle with the final member of the F4 Kim Hyun Joong. As we know he portrayed Yoon Jihoo in Boys Before/Over Flowers and now hes back this month with his second mini album and first single ‘ Lucky Guy.’ What do you all think of the song and his look?

BTW if you’ve seen the Kdrama ‘Lie to Me’ you’ll notice the main girl (Hong Soo Hyun) played Yoo So Ran the fickle friend of Gong Ah Jong ( Yoon Eun Hye ❤ )

K-Kisses! KrisE
