Today is Shim Hongseob’s 18th birthday (19th in korean age). He is a member of the korean boy group 24K (they are under Choeun Entertainment) in which he is a vocalist, lead dancer, rapper and maknae.
Hongseob debuted last year, along with member Changsun with 24K’s first release in 2016 – the track Still 24K. They weren’t part of the original line-up. After members Daeil and Sungoh went on hiatus, Changsun and Hongseob were added to keep a 7-member line-up. Later that year, 24K released FINALLY their 1st full-length album The Real One featuring the title track BINGO.
Check out the music videos below!
Happy birthday to our sweet, sweet maknae! 24K is currently in Warsaw, Poland for the 4th show in their Europe Tour Still With 24U. Hope Hongseob spends a lovely day there!
Wish them all the luck for their upcoming events and can’t wait to see them live in 2 days here in Lisbon omgjsfJHDFKJD
This song Limitless is the title track for NCT 127’s – NCT sub-unit – most recent comeback. It is part of the album NCT #127 – LIMITLESS – The 2nd Mini Album.
Starting with the MV, which you kinda can watch here 😀
Nobody really knew what to expect, considering the messed up teasers, but the truth is, the MV was just as confusing. Apart from that, aesthetic 1000000% on point. Perfect balance between dancing scenes and actual mv scenes. The only thing I have to point out is the terrible distribuition of screen time. I mean, try comparing Yuta’s screen time to Mark’s and you’ll understand what I’m talking about
As for the song itself, HELL YES
Overall it’s such an amazing track I don’t even know where to turn. I’m not going to lie, I got a bit worried after Taeyong’s #2 teaser… I had no clue about the song and suddenly we’re introduced to that, somewhat particular, line in Taeyong’s rap with a, somewhat particular, vocal hum,… skill?
I love how in the song there are so many different moments… I mean, the song isn’t repetitive at all. It resembles the music video in a way that, there are no repetitive scenes. The overall theme is there and the song is consistent and well built, but it never gets boring and repetitive. Like I said, there are many different moments to it, making you feel differently about each one of them.
What makes me sad is that, with such a well-built track, whoever distributed the lines made a terrible job. Yeah, I know there are different roles to K-Pop members in a group, and normally who gets most lines takes less visible spots in choreographies but in this case it’s just too much.
Let’s look at Winwin. Yeah, he’s the main dancer and is often in the middle front, but throughout the whole song boy gets two lines which he doesn’t even get to sing on live peformances because of the audio effect. There is also Yuta, who gets one line, I repeat, one line. Sure, he gets to be in the middle aswell, but unlike Winwin who gets his fair share of screen time in the MV, Yuta barely even has that. Not even to mention JOHNNY. I mean, after all the hype I expected SM to be a bit more self-conscious and finally let the boy shine, but no, he got two lines. But hey, I’m already thankful for his debut.
There might be another way to interpretate this though, SM was defenitely aware of how much attention Johnny would get on this album and in order to balance that with the other 8 members, they tried to shift some of the spotlight back to other members.
However, Mark and Taeyong still got a heck of a lot of screen time/lines/middle or front spots in the choreo so yeah, there is still some work to be made.
In conclusion, I was absoluetely blown away with this track – as you might have noticed on the video – I noticed some major evolution since Fire Truck era and Doyoung has also improved a lot since The 7th Sense.
Once again I think I predicted a K-Pop event. Now I might just make a post begging for Hansol’s debut and it might just happen I mean WHO KNOWS
No joke guys, I actually predicted their disbandment. Not because I disliked them or wanted them to disband, but myB weren’t able to grab a big audience to begin with and their following comeback went down the same way.
It’s not like groups go around disbanding every day, but I worry a lot about this due to the amount of groups we have out there these days. It’s simply impossible for everyone to achieve no.1 so it’s not surprising that at some point disbandments will be as frequent as debuts. I stan a lot of underrated groups so I often prepare myself for the worst, if the successful ones disband won’t the same happen to the others?
That’s why, about two weeks ago, I was listening to Ddo Ddoand suddenly realized it had already been a year or so since their comeback. Is it normal for rookies to take such a long break? Not really, these days, even if you’re debut was the ultimate bop and promotions got carried out for ten years, they’ll still make one or two close comebacks, that’s the only way the audience will remember them. That’s why I wondered about their disbandment. It turned out to be plain ass foreshadowing.
Moonhee and Hayoon remain in Maroo Entertainment and will debut with the companie’s upcoming girl group in January 2017. Is it just me who thinks it’s a bit too soon? For some reason, I can’t see it go well for these girls either… 😦
If you say ex KARA members, you are mean and the answer is no.
MY POINT IS
I don’t know about you but I got some hardcore feels for this guy last year after his performance with Goo Hara. Like seriously, have you seen that mv? Hum, do yourself a favor?
Every time I watched their performance on music shows I’d think something like god are those sunglasses necessary i want to know what do you look like in case you show up somewhere else BC HUM YOU DANCE VERY WELL HAH but the punk never did. GLAD HE DIDNT THO
I have been following KARD since the first teasers were released so, trust me, if it wasn’t for him wearing sunglasses during their performance at the debut party I’d still be clueless right now.
Turns out, member BM aka Matthew Kim aka representative of the letter K in KARD was THAT guy, Goo Hara’s partner during Choco Chip Cookies promotions, the punk that never took off his sunglasses.
I found this so randomly, I was just watching their debut party performance and suddenly he popped out of nowhere and the god damn sunglasses gave it all away, I instantly went like HOLD THE FUDGE UP YOU ARE THAT GUY and for a split second my brain froze and i was like omfjhhdf he looks like him but it doesnt make much sense bc trainees dont go around collaborating with artists from others labeLSKJJFDJ WAIT GOO HARA MEANS KARA KARA MEANS DSP MEDIA DSP MEDIA MEANS KARD HOLY SHGUIDGYY
It’s so clear now
the guy was already serious bias material before debut what im i suppOSED TO DO NOW
p.s – ok if u still doubting me go ahead but its actually on wikipedia already lmao
Who else is still recovering from the hot debuts that happened last October? I’m talking about PENTAGON and SF9 here. I was already longing for PENTAGON’s debut since Pentagon Maker, but SF9 was love at first sight aswell. My one problem is that I haven’t had the time to sit down and look up these guys closely and actually get to know what they’re like – honestly this is my favorite part of beginning to stan an artist. It has also been quite difficult to get familiar with their faces and names, specially because they’re rookies so there aren’t many good HQof them out there yet. I figured maybe some of you could be struggling with this aswell so I thought about gathering the neatest and fairest HQs of each members of these groups I could find so we can all finally get to know them! This post will be dedicated to PENTAGON.
I noticed one thing while gathering these…. WE NEED MORE SHIN WON HQs!!!!!!!!
This is super random, yeah, but a while ago I was studying for tomorrow’s test and suddenly SMRookies’ Johnny came to my mind and once again it hit me that the boy is still waiting to debut anD I GOT SO PISSED I DONT EVEN KNOW
Here’s the thing: yeah, nobody is perfect. I KNOW that. buT ITS HONESTLY SO HARD TO BELIEVE BC HONESTLY IVE ONLY HEARD WONDERS ABOUT JOHNNY and like I’m just curious to see the real deal.
Bear in mind that one deserves an award for training at SM alone. Not for getting in – I’ve heard the criteria for casting isn’t as specific as people think – but for being able to survive there. A bunch have dropped out because they either couldn’t handle it or because they thought the wait for a debut date wasn’t worth it.
Here, take as an example this guy who started a thread on reddit after dropping out of SM. Hundreds of people asked him questions and I actually took the time to read through all the comments. His answers were mindblowingly clarifying and it really allows you to get a concrete idea of the trainee life at SM Entertainment.
BUT LIKE BACK TO JOHNNY OK
I MIGHT EVEN DROP LEECHAIYAPORNKUL CHITTAPHON AKA TEN JUST FOR JOHNNY I DONT EVEN KNOW HOW ITS GONNA HIT ME WHEN H DEBUTS BC IM HONESTLY SO SHOOK RIGHT NOW
Therefore, here’s a Johnny aprecciation post. You’re welcome.
