A Touching Group Serenade from Paris

I wanted to share this video with everyone. Junsu of 2PM, Kevin of U-KISS, SHINee’s Taemin and B2ST/BEAST’s Hyunseung perfomed “More than Words” on Music Bank in Paris.

It was like a beautiful group serenade and I think its one of those songs to listen to when you’re not feeling so great. Big thanks to Suzieuda, a BWLB reader and Twitter follower for sending this my way. ^_^

K-Kisses! KrisE

SS501: Love Them!

For those of you unfamiliar with this group I briefly introduced them to you during the first Battle of the Most Dramatic Music Videos by featuring their mv Love Ya. SS501 ( pronounced Double S 501. SS stands for Superstar Singer 501 Five members united as one forever) is my all time favorite South Korean boy group. They were the first K-Pop group I had ever heard of and I miss them soooo much! They formed back in 2005 and were super successful and had really crazy reality shows that involved supernatural mystery cases and stalkers. If you peep their older videos like Unlock they were totally Anime pre plastic surgery looking ^_^ They seriously have to be the nicest group of guys everrrrr. They always treated their fans with such love and respect. If their fans were waiting outside in the cold too long they would argue with their management team to let everyone in the concert arena. They always bought all their fans hot tea and there were many occasions during concerts where they would just stand and talk to their fans and break down into tears after expressing how grateful they were.

Currently all the members belong to different management companies, however each one has SS501 activities written into their contracts and they will be making a comeback!!! So who are the members of SS501?! Well the group is made up of 5 guys; Leader Kim Hyun Joong, Park Jung Min, Heo Young Saeng, Kim Kyu Jong and Maknae Kim Hyung Jun. Notice anything weird? Yes both Kim Hyun Joong and Kim Hyung Jun have verrrrry similar names! If you ever notice when us Kim Hyun Joong fans talk about him we refer to him as “Leader” that is the reason. Because their names are so similar Triple S fans (Superstar Singer Supporters) refer to them as “Leader” and “Baby”.

Quick Facts: Kim Hyun Joong played Boys Over Flowers F4 member Yoon JiHoo. Boys Over Flowers club scene with Jandi features Baby, Kim Kyu Jong and Heo Young Saeung performing their single Ur Man. SS501 sung Because I’m Stupid also featured in BOF. Baby’s younger brother is former U-KISS member Kim Ki Bum (not to be confused with SuJu member Kim Ki Bum or SHINee’s Key). Below are member photos,names and ages ^_^

Kim “Key” Kibum: The Key To SHINee’s Flare

I just love Key, the 20-year-old SHINee member known for his flamboyant style and charm. You may wonder where the stagename “Key” comes from. There is a Kim Kibum that existed publicly before this one, and he was once part of Super Junior (current on leave of absence). To not confuse fans and the public, SHINee Kibum decided to take on the stagename of “Key”. He also is known by another term of endearment “Almighty Key” because of incredible talent and contribution to SHINee by way of his dance, singing and rapping skills. Even though Minho is my overall SHINee bias, Key is my SHINee vocal bias. All of the other SHINee members deem Key the “omma” (Korean for “mother”) of the group, as he is always nagging and making a fuss over them with an uncanny maternal instinct.

I remember the first time I saw Key in SHINee’s “Noona Neomu Yeoppo (Older girl you’re very pretty)” video. All I could think was, “who’s the kid with the perfect face?!” Key’s looks are striking, no doubt about it. But I must confess that my affections for Key are totally platonic and big-sisterly. Something else I really appreciate about Key is that he seems to really appreciate his fans, and no matter where SHINee is in the world, he always seems to be the one member who acknowledges them with a kind smile and warm wave. He’s also known for being physically affectionate with his beloved Shawols (SHINee fans); and humbly receives their praise and adoration through gracious bows and thanks. I think it’s safe to say that Key is worldclass.

EXOPLANET: Diiirty South Korea Yo!

“Roar like a Buffalooo” First of all I was all like “oh I cant keep up with EXO and all their teasers cuz theres like 500 of them so I’m done posting on them until their debut MV” but this is toooo funny! Can someone please let me know what their sound is suppose to be?! I had been thinking its going to be all industrial sounding and what not since thats been the sound through out their teasers but this has totally tripped me up!

Of course its Kai (again) but also member Lay (pics below, hes hot) dancing to some Diiiirty South sounding single! I was like whoaaaaaa!! The funniest part about this whole thing is the song features SHINee’s KEY!

Between B.A.P steppin on car hoods and EXO soundin like their about to crack open a few forties and party with some booty shakers I’m convinced there is a crew of American Southern producers over there. Whatevers going on its crackin me up thats for sure!

[M/V] B.A.P “Warrior”

Finally new group B.A.P (Best Absolute Perfect) has released their first MV and I gotta tell you I really like both the video and the song! Theres something very attractive about an angry Korean guy hmm.

Take notice of:

Every member swam in a bottle of bleach ( that’s a first for all the members of a group to be blonde at the same time right??)

The Donnie Darko-esque rabbit head.

Crunking/Krumping (which ever street dance that was!) and stepping…YOU GOT SERVED KOREAN STYLE YO!

My Final Thoughts: I can see B.A.P pushing SHINee off a stage and laughing about it. I like everything about them and there will def be a date week with them as soon as I find out more about them!

K-Kisses! KrisE

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?

MBLAQ: Babies and Cows

Has everyone heard the news? If you havent its a good thing I’m here right? Well its been confirmed that MBLAQ will be on season 5 of ‘Hello Baby’. This info came out like 2 days ago so it’s not like its brand spankin new but I just have to talk about it. First off if you don’t know what Hello Baby is check out my post SHINee Ring Ding Dads and Dates. You might even want to watch that season because it was hilarious!

Alright so look, you’re pretty familiar with the guys of MBLAQ right? I don’t have to really go all out and start talking about their personalities do I? I mean you understand it when I say I don’t know what the frek the producers of Hello Baby are on to leave a small child in the hands of MBLAQ! Was I the only one who watched Mir practically violate a mannequin on MBLAQ Goes to School?! Is the combination of Mir and Joonie not a frightening scene of hyperactivity??!? Does leader SeungHo not have the most passive personality everrr??? I seriously doubt G.O is going to know what to do, I can already see his “duh face” . Thunder is the childs only hope if you really think about it.

I wonder if it’ll be a girl or boy; either way its doomed. If it’s a girl that might just be awkward, although Joonie can teach her ballet depending on her age. If it’s a boy he might pick up bad habits. Girl or boy Mir could teach it about animals; after all he did grow up on a farm. He’s a total country bumpkin if you didn’t know. In fact so funny he said he has an entire mountain named after him and if he’s real interested in a girl he’ll “sell a cow for her”.

What does everyone else think of MBLAQ caring for a baby? Will Mir be the worst appa?
