I've been paying attention to this guy since I first discovered kpop, and it was the group he was in that got me into kpop in the first place.

This is new stuff from him, new solo stuff. It's very J-rock influenced and sounds fantastic. I like the different registers and emotions he makes with his voice. And he went with a theme/visual that never fails -- pretty boy vampire. May I say that this guy has a tendency to get into situations in which he's tied to walls? :P I'm pretty impressed. This is epic for kpop which can be bubblegom pop-y and drab occasionally. I like it.

This is a kpop post, fyi. If you couldn't tell.

I haven't been on the internet for fun and leisure for most of the week (actually the past couple weeks), so coming home from work and finding out a bunch of exciting kpop things was awesome. A lot of my favorite artists are doing new things and it makes me excited~

Because look at it. His whole neck chin deal is just lovely.

GD's chin

As seen in his new music video called "One of a Kind." It's the most awesome and badass and riduculous and facepalm-worthy thing I've seen in a while. I'm so reviled by how his hair looks like pasta someone spraypainted yellow and glued to his scalp... but at the same time the rest of him is so amazing. I can't believe they constructed a skateboard ramp in the shape of the letter G.


That's where I recognized his hair from in the video! Betti Spaghetti dolls and their plastic hair.

Comment to this post saying "FIVE!" and I will pick five things I would like you to talk about. They might make sense or be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself, hopefully for the rest of eternity!


Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kseenaa and previous lj users for sharing this, and for asking me my five questions! Let's merrily perpetuate this! It's a fun one. :) [livejournal.com profile] kseenaa asked me about the future, fandoms, books, comics, and music.

If you like tall pretty boys in heels, feathers, and pleather... *ahem*

Then take a couple minutes to check out Jo Kwon. He's an animal, he himself says so. Those heels he's dancing in are nearly 8 inches tall. The choreography is amazing, it's really intricate and complicated, astounding me every time. How he keeps his balance is beyond me. I also like his voice, and the expressive vibrato he uses at the end of some of his notes.

Something that's rocking the kpop world right now are stalkers who obsessively follow the superstars of the group JYJ. First, there was a recording of JYJ cussing out the stalkers and even hitting them. JYJ was blacklisted for this, pretty much. "How could they do such a thing?!"

But then more was released, like a photo of a JYJ member in a restaurant, and the windows behind full of girls plastered to the windows. A story about how these girls hire taxis to intentionally crash into JYJ's vehicles. A video of one girl caressing a JYJ member's cheek, then slapping it with all her might. The shock on his face. JYJ saying they've been stalked for years.

This song rules my life right now.

In the original, Taeyang's part starting at 2:30 kills me for some reason. I think it's the emotion he sings with, or maybe it's just his voice timbre.



Two fantastic covers beneath the cut! )

Each time is different and wonderful. Man, I love him.

The first time he does a ballet twirl. The second time his costume explodes. The third time, it's all the other guys ganging up on him. The fourth time he makes a funny noise and that other members can't sing for laughing. XD

This means war!!! :D )

It was amazing. Since I didn't go and since I'd have to get the dvd imported at who knows how much, watching the entire concert on youtube will do.

All of their songs were amazing, but Love Song was especially flawless. I covet GD's legs. But man, do I hate their outfits.

The energy and emotion was great. They worked the crowd so well and gave an amazing performance. Seungri was utterly radiant, and Taeyang was so guhhhh.... just perfect in every way. The way he groaned that low note in Haru Haru, and then gave a little gasp at the end of it... killed me ded. Even TOP was less annoying than normal. GD was literally spinning like a top across the stage, and Daesung was really getting into it! Just amazing, amazing. These guys are my favorites for a reason. No one else performs with this freedom nd abandon, it's so amazing. The crowd loved them so much, as do I.

This post will contain much fangirling and screaming. I was typing this as the event was streaming! <3 Yay! My girls won best band in the world!!!!!! :D

WHEEEEEEEEE )

Today was a fun day. I discovered Taeyang has a personal youtube account. He uploaded a Beyonce cover that's quite nice, but what made me laugh so hard was his username: THETEYDADDY. Appropriate graphic is appropriate, and not mine. X)



.......He's gonna be singing "I Need A Girl" for the rest of his life. So, I clicked from Taeyang's channel to this very bizarre, amazing video.... And my life changed forever.

Taeyang doesn't need a girl--he just needs ice cream! )

I was first introduced to k-pop in Spring 2009, I think. I've been hooked ever since. This was the first video and song I heard. It was recommended by an online friend of mine who shared my interest in jpop which stemmed from our interest in anime. So this... this is another level that most certainly wasn't jpop, and I loved it so much more. From there.....like, all I listen to is either Kpop, Tokio Hotel, or La Oreja De Van Gogh (a band from Spain). That's about it.

This band has changed a lot since this time, which was considered their glory days. They've since split, and it got ugly with legal and business issues. It's a lost era for this group now, so it's nostalgic and slightly sad to watch this. It brings back memories of studying for this one class in the library, and me and my brother fangirling over this group.

They always give humble and intelligent answers to questions, and like it a lot! I love that they won, even though they're going through a lot of hard times as a group. Also, Taeyang is kind of annoying dare I say. He just needs to sing and otherwise not scream into the mic, ok?

Lol at TOP's lack of dancing skills. And their "next album???" SQUEEEEEEEEE

Who's the most skilled male singer in kpop? My question is: Why isn't Taeyang in first place? And how could Taemin score before Niel and Yunho??? And Seungri? That's dumb.

This music video is stunning, with amazing images and imagery that create a commentary about several themes. It's amazing! Not to mention those out-of-this-world vocals.
