The Kpop Dude

Hey there

Before you ask, no, I did not get to know The Kpop Dude just now. In fact, the reason why I decided to make this post is exactly because, up to this day, there is still people who don’t know about The Kpop Dude. Who is he? How did he appear? Why did he go viral?

Basically, I mentioned him in a conversation with a friend who, yes, is also a Kpop stan and she had no clue what I was talking about. I was fascinated.

Meet The Kpop Dude:

Yes, it’s Taemin. Lee Taemin. From SHINee. Yes.

So during some of Taemin’s or SHINee’s promotions (I’m not sure) this clip of Taemin was captured, the moment every one was anxious to know who had won first place. It sounds kind of random to explain it that way… Every one was anxious to see who won? Doesn’t every one feel like that at the end of every music show?

The thing is, this one clip is unique. His expression at the beginning… His face is contorced in anxiety is2g

Here, look again

God knows how, this clip is so unque to the point it actually went viral. People outside Kpop actually got as fascinated as Kpop stans. Now, the clip went viral but non-Kpop stans had 0 clues of Taemin is. They just knew he was related to Kpop. The Kpop Dude was born.

No joke, try googling “the kpop dude” yourself.

SEPTEMBER 14TH | CNBLUE “CINDERELLA” COMEBACK

10448759_893259137418579_8032672143657578832_n

On the past 14th of September, 2015, CNBLUE made their long-awaited comeback with the album 2gether which included the title track 신데렐라 (Cinderella). Click here to watch their MV for the song 신데렐라.
The song’s lyrics express a man’s desire to be with the woman he loves however, she keeps running away. This is one of the things I love about CNBLUE, they are very skilled when it comes composing and I love how the words sound so smooth with the melody. I also find CNBLUE particularly special because they’re an actual band and not a boy group, which allows them to make more unique and pop-rock-ish tracks. Of course, non of this would be possible if it wasn’t for Yonghwa’s and Jonghyun’s vocals all the members’ talents for the instruments they play.
The music video is also very cute and quite original, I really like how it matches the story behind the lyrics! Don’t forget to click the link above the watch their music video!
This post is mainly about the title track but don’t forget to check out the other songs in CNBLUE’s album 2gether and show them lots of love~~

SEPTEMBER 10TH | UP10TION DEBUTS!

up10tion_1441250132_af_org

Hi! Here I am again with one more post for today!
Though I haven’t been into K-Pop for a year yet I am pretty conscious that 2015 was quite rich in debuts and, like many others, UP10TION are a proof of that!
UP10TION debuted on September 10th, 2015 with the mini album Top Secret with the title track 위험해 SO DANGEROUS. They’re a 10 member group (ofc Cat, the name makes it obvious) and are under TOP Media – same as Teen Top.

In my opinion, this is an amazing debut song that’s super catchy, makes you want to dance and really good at bringing out the best in each member if you combine the music video with the song and the choreography. All these things definitely helped UP10TION gain a lot of recognition as soon as they debuted.
As for me, they got my attention the moment I first saw them perform!
Go check out UP10TION now and show the boys lots of love!

After their debut they’ve already had a comeback with the song 여기여기 붙어라 Catch Me! on which I also plan to write a post about, but until that you can check out the song here

SEPTEMBER 10TH | Z.TAO “CROWN” MV

541676971

Hello there!
To judge if our dears Kris, Luhan and Zitao have been doing better or worse after departing from EXO depends on each one’s opinion. However, I’m more convinced that all three of them appear to be happier now, regardless of everything we know about SM Ent., I don’t know, they just seem more free and satisfied with what they do (regardless of all the lawsuits and all that upsetting stuff) which can be good and bad. Good because I’m happy for them, bad because it means they weren’t truly happy while in EXO.
Anyways, let’s talk about happy things like Tao’s MV for the song Crown! Wait… Z.Tao’s! Sorry, hard to get used to it…
To be very honest, I don’t consider this one of Zitao’s best songs, it’s beautiful, yes, but it didn’t really captivate me like his other chinese songs have before.
THE MUSIC VIDEO THOUGH. Shall we start with the fact that the girl who’s on the music video is portuguese? HELLO IM PORTUGUESE TOO! Can’t I be in one of his music videos aswell? No? Ok.
So, since the song isn’t one of my favorites, what caught my attention was the music video. In contrast with my opinion about the song, the music video exceeded my expectations. In my opinion this is definitely one of his best music videos because of the story it tells. The fact that it is a cycle of his life as he tries to reach out to the girl he loves… If we put it that way it sounds the cheesy and all but I really wish he would have more music videos like this, even if his other songs are more hip-hopish (new word, again) because it’ll captivate me as much as the song does. That would definitely be the best of both worlds!
Check out the music video here!
What did you think about Zitao’s song Crown and the MV?
Bear in mind that, even though this isn’t one of me favorites songs by Zitao, doesn’t mean I didn’t like it! I did, of course V(^_^)V

SEPTEMBER 10TH | SEVENTEEN “MANSAE” COMEBACK!

fb89957865b50f2be4924cee1d5b357af1e2d2ac_hq

Hey there, Carats! wOHOOO THUMBS UP FOR SEVENTEEN’S OFFICIAL FAN CLUB NAME WOOP WOOP
This seemed to have happened ages ago – four months is indeed quite the time – but I’m still not over how amazing this comeback was.
SEVENTEEN, definitely one of the best rookie groups that debuted last year and have been non-stoppable since their debut last year – exactly nine months ago (hoLY SHEITHJDJS).
Last September they dropped their second mini album entitled Boys Be which compiled my jams for soooo long. It might be too soon to state this but SEVENTEEN keep blowing me away because of how ridiculously talented they are.
Their choreos are always great. If you were satisfied with the choreo for Adore U then there’s no way you weren’t amazed with Mansae! It’s interesting that they know very well how to take advantage of the fact that there are so many members to always come up with such creative choreographies.
It is also amazing that they work so hard to produce their own songs – which by the way, I’m happy that it is becoming more usual among K-Pop idols. Mansae was probably one of the best comebacks of the end of 2015, it’s very uplifting, catchy and still summerish, perfect for the time of the year in which it was released. That’s also something that makes SEVENTEEN very talented comparing to other groups, the fact that they have such great sense of opportunity and are able to produce amazing hits. I also love the lyrics of this song, they’re super cute and tell a story that, probably most teenagers can relate to.
I also really liked the music video. It was very colorful, fun and resembled the story the lyrics mentioned. Check out the Mansae music video here if you haven’t yet!
Finally, the other songs in this mini album are amazing and I must be honest and say they exceeded my expectations! My favorites are definitely Fronting and Mansae, but they’re all super catchy and really make you want to dance. There’s also When I Grow Up, which is performed by the vocal unit, it’s so beautiful (ToT)/~~~
I hope Carats keep on supporting SEVENTEEN and that they keep receiving their very well deserved recognition! These boys are so humble, kind and have so much potential, I really wish them the bet of luck in the future!
If you’re new in the fandom, welcome, Carat~~

BLONDE KOOKIE APPRECIATION POST

Good afternoon dear reader!
Not going to lie – this post was never planned and it will probably come out quite random for some of you because Jungkook isn’t blonde anymore and hasn’t been for like half year already. However everyday when I log on wordpress I check my blog’s statistics to kind of give me a heads up on what you guys read the most on my blog and I’m telling you it’s insane how often people search for ‘blonde jungkook’ and consequently my SO LONG, BLONDE KOOKIE post is the probably one of the most read here. Based on that I decided to leave this post dedicated to all of you who want to look at blonde Kookie once again! Enjoy~

SEPTEMBER 8TH | BTS’ “I NEED U” PROLOGUE

9f3802c48f52923602fa4f4f4dfaa0e27957e189_hq

Believe it or not it was pretty hard for me to write this post because I had no clue how I was going to put into words how this damn prologue made me feel – and we can’t forget the MV for RUN… but for now let’s stick to the prologue.

After I NEED U came out with the rest of the mini album 화양연화 The Most Beautiful Moment In Life, Pt. 1 we were aware that there was going to be a follow up – a part 2 however this prologue was dropped on all ARMYs like an atomic bomb in the form of an emotional roller-coast.
Disregarding of all theories on the true story behind I NEED U, this prologue was quite helpful to clear every thing up and actually understand the story behind this concept.

Only 0.3 seconds in the video and I was already emotional because of Taehyung’s scene. Without a doubt this scene is a direct follow up of I NEED U.
I don’t think many people realized this but this concept was great for showing each members’ acting skills – which are quite impressive.

The main reason why I got emotional while watching wasn’t necessarily due to the sad side of the video (because before the very end we had no clue what was still to come) but actually due to all the happy scenes. This may sound like nonsense to some people but when I care about someone it really moves me to just see they’re happy. Even though this was just a video it actually made me happy to see them having fun with all the members while doing simple things like hanging together or taking photos – creating memories or going somewhere they’ve never been to together, just being happy.

And then BAM
Alright, once again there’s no doubt of what happened – Tae jumped, tried to… yanno… take his own life (it kind of bothers me to say the actual word I don’t know why).
My heart broke a little on this scene. Just look at how Tae finally glanced at his hyung 😦
a1b9c12484ad0bbe6999e8cdaed30ab3b4e1fba0_hq
As if it wasn’t enough we still got this bonus scene where we conclude that Jin never took that photo with the other boys! Awesome!1! Right. In. The. Feels.
So here’s my theory up to this point (I must warn you this isn’t really based on other theories online because I didn’t ready any it’s just the most decent conclusion to which I got after discussing it with my friends): in the I NEED U MV we were able to see their life’s go downhill except for Jin in fact it was quite uncertain what had actually happened to him but at the time I just thought he died like the others – which would make Tae the only survivor. Turns out Tae took his own life too so Jin was the only survivor – the last scene when he’s the only one on the Polaroid is also a proof of that.
The reason why it’s so hard to make up a theory for the story behind this concept is because the scenes in I NEED U, Prologue and RUN aren’t necessarily organized chronologically. From my point of view what I concluded after watching the prologue at first was that the rest of the boys all died and Jin was left alone – which we now know isn’t the truth. But then I started wondering what the scene of Jin in the bedroom with the petals and all represented because that scene was so angelic and all it didn’t seem be happening in real life like the other members’ scenes so I thought maybe Jin is the one who died… But I gave it a little more thought later and it made zero sense so I discarded the option but well looks like I was right…?
Friendly reminder this isn’t my final theory of the whole story, I’ll write about that on my post about RUN!
