K-Pop Group of the Day: Beast

Hello everyone! 🙂

Since I haven’t published posts from other segments, I’ve decided to make up for the lack of those posts by doing one today! 😀 The group I’ll be focusing on is Beast! I personally have been a fan of Beast for quite a long time, and although I guess I could still be considered one, I’m definitely not as obsessed with them as I was around 2011 or so (I believe that’s the year of my crazy fangirling haha :P). Either way, in homage of their success with Good Luck, let’s get to talking about the group! 

Favorite member? If you asked me this a few years ago (when I was obsessed with them), I would’ve answered Kikwang without hesitation. Now (that I’m not so obsessed with them), I’d probably have to say that I don’t have a solid favorite out of the group, but if I had to choose one I’d probably choose Yoseob because of his amazing singing. 🙂

Favorite song? Beast has so many awesome songs. Really. In fact, Good Luck is great too! 😀 Out of all their songs though, my favorite would have to be, hands down, Beautiful. It’s my favorite because this super catchy song made me become a fan of Beast, and with performances from it, I familiarized myself with the group. You definitely should listen to it if you haven’t already! It’s a different style (definitely) from Good Luck, which you might not be used to, but it’s nonetheless my favorite until now. 

One interesting detail/story about the group? I’d like to note that I’ve slightly broadened this question (which used to ask about one thing that sets the group apart) because I felt like I wanted a question in which I could expand on stories or details (as the question says haha) about that particular group, whether it be something I’ve experienced or I’ve seen online in a performance, concert, etc.! 🙂 So yeah, to answer this new question… Other than their amazing performances, I would have to say that an interesting story about the group is the concert I went to when they were in my area! I believe it was around 2011, if I’m not mistaken, so it was a little while back. Their performance was amaaazing, but Kikwang (who was my favorite member at the time) was injured, so he couldn’t really perform 😦 He just sat in a chair instead haha! It was actually a United Cube…Concert? Something like that haha so 4minute, G.NA, and Beast came (because at that time, the other groups hadn’t debuted yet… I believe? I don’t know, I have a terrible memory :P). They were all really great and it was a good experience 🙂 especially because I was so close to the stage and the members hehe. It was sweaty and there was a lot of pushing, but I guess it was worth it since I was such a big fan of them at that time hehe. :3

Overall opinion? I really like this group! I would say that my loss of “interest” (for lack of a better word) in the group from when I was a hardcore fan (b2uty lol if you will) to now is not because of a decline in the quality of their music, but rather a personal change, in which I basically stopped keeping up with groups as much as I did before (which is true about MBLAQ as well if you see my other post. I became a fan of MBLAQ after I had lost interest in Beast :3). Nonetheless, their music is great and I’m happy as long as they release awesome songs as they have until now. 😀 

What do you guys think about Beast? Make sure to check out my Talking about on both Good Luck and No More! 🙂 I’d love to see your comments answering these questions about Beast too! Thanks so much to everyone who has been reading and checking out my blog! ❤

K-Pop Group of the Day: Girls’ Generation

Hello everyone!

I’m back, and today I have a K-Pop Group of the Day post about Girls’ Generation (aka SNSD)! In honor of them wrapping up their promotions for Mr. Mr. this weekend, I decided it would be fitting to talk about them now! Oh, by the way, I hope you guys are liking the posts recently! :3 I do want more diversity and variation in my posts so I’ll work on that, but as you guys might be able to tell, I’ve been trying to alternate between the different categories. So far, Talking about’s have been the most frequent, but please let me know if you think I should so more of another one! 🙂 Also, I would love any suggestions of posts you guys want me to do! Okay, now that I’ve talked about that, let’s go right ahead and talk about SNSD!

Although most of you probably know about this group, I’ll give a brief explanation for those who don’t! Girls’ Generation is a 9 member group formed in 2007 by SM Entertainment. The members consist of Taeyeon, Jessica, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona, and Seohyun. As I’ve mentioned briefly, their recent comeback Mr. Mr. was released on February 24th. I don’t know why but I felt like their promotions were so short 😦 maybe that’s just my impression!

Favorite member? My favorite member is Taeyeon, without a doubt. She’s beautiful, adorable, and an amazing singer. To be honest, that can be said about most of the members of this group, but something about her is just so cute. :3 I really love her laugh! Oh my, this is so old, but click here to listen to my favorite song of hers. The memories are coming back :’) Haha! Do you guys remember when she was with Jung Hyung Don on We Got Married? (What is all these references to years ago? 😮 Is this a Throwback Wednesday Post? 😛 Hahaha) I loved them so much; they were my favorite couple. Overall, I just really love her quirky, adorable personality and her pretty voice!

Favorite song? I’d say my favorite song of Girls’ Generation is probably Kissing You, which is relevant to the whole Throwback Wednesday theme I have going on right here. DO YOU GUYS SEE THE QUALITY OF THIS VIDEO :O So old! But anyways, it’s such a sweet, cute song :3 But really, I have a lot of favorites, like Genie, Gee, Hoot, etc. So many to choose from!

One thing that sets them apart from others? Definitely their super fun songs and catchy dances! That isn’t one thing, but you get what I’m trying to say. :p

Overall opinion? I really like them! They were probably, if my (terrible) memory is not failing me, one of the first girl groups I got into. I think their rise in fame coincided with when I started to get into K-pop! Since then and still true today, they’re an awesome group with super catchy songs! Although I’m not the type of fan that keeps up to date with all of their promotional activities, I do like their performances and them as a group in general.

What are your opinions on this group? Let me know in the comments! Also, I’d like to do K-Pop Group of the Day posts about more well known groups too, but I also think it would be fun if I included groups that are not as widely known, so please leave any suggestions in the comments! 🙂 Again, thank you so much for reading! I’ll be back with another post tomorrow!

K-Pop Group of the Day: Big Bang

Hey everyone!

Guess who’s back with another K-Pop Group of the Day? 😀 You guessed it, It’s Time to K-Pop! I’m here to post about a very famous group and that is Big Bang! How are you guys liking the posts on my blog so far? I think I’ve got into the schedule of posting (although I can’t guarantee I’ll post as often as I do now, which is everyday haha :3) and what “categories” of posts I’m going to do, but I still would really love other ideas so let me know what you think! I always have to babble before I start a post :S but let’s get right into it!

Members: Taeyang, T.O.P, Seungri, G Dragon, Daesung

– Part of Y.G. Entertainment, formed in 2006

Favorite Member: This one is a toughie… I mean all of them are great, but I have to choose between G.D. and T.O.P?! 😮 Although I love them both, I’m going to have to go with G.D., though, because lately I’ve been really impressed with his music, like his singles and what he produces, and I’m staying true to the love I had in him in like 2008ish :3 hahah I can’t be the only one who thinks he has his own unique charm 😀 and I like that about him!

Favorite song? Oh man… Big Bang has so many good songs. You’d think indecisive me would have difficulty with this one, but this one comes fairly easily. Definitely Lies – Big Bang (bringing it back to 2009, aw yeah) I’d even say it’s one of my favorite k-pop songs…. of all time! 😮 It’s obviously different from the K-pop today but I just love it too much either way :3 You really have to listen to it if you haven’t already!

One thing that sets them apart from others? Definitely their charisma, I’d have to say. This, along with their talent of course 😀

Overall opinion? Love them. They were the group that got me into K-pop a long time ago, and their music doesn’t disappoint me now. Although I don’t really follow them with the same obsessiveness I used to back then (hehe), I still look forward to their songs and performances. They have this charm and allure that I can’t quite explain. :3 Cheesy huh? Well, they have quality music and talent to top it off. 🙂

Here’s a more recent pic of them, since I felt bad for only including an old one :3 Image taken from cdn.popdust.com. All rights go to the respective owners!

What a short K-pop Group of the Day post! D: Sorry about that, but I tried to be succinct, for once in my posts haha! I didn’t feel like there was a necessity to be redundant. I’d love to know your opinion about them! Who should I do next? How often should I do these? Let me know your feedback! Again, thanks for reading! ❤ I really do appreciate it.

Hugs from your fellow K-Popper! :3

K-Pop Group of the Day: GOT7

Hey everyone! I’m back with another post! 🙂 3 days in a row, woohoo! Haha! If you’ve read my previous “Talking about Delicious – ToHeart” post, you will know about the recent idea that I had of talking about a K-Pop group and my opinion of them. I didn’t really want to put two posts in a row talking about music videos, especially so early on in my blog, so I decided to try this out and see what you guys think! 😀

Today’s K-Pop Group of the Day (hopefully I’ll come up with a catchier title soon) is ….. GOT7! 🙂 For those of you who don’t know about them, GOT7 is JYP Entertainment’s new boy group that debuted this year. The members consist of JB (the leader), Mark, Jackson, BamBam, Jr., Youngjae, and Yugyeoum. I suggest you check out their debut single, Girls Girls Girls, if you haven’t already!

Before I start, I want you guys to know that I don’t know much about them… I mean yeah, I’ve listened to a couple of their songs and I’ve watched every single episode of Real GOT7, which you can check out here on JYP’s channel, and follow them on Twitter… Wow that’s actually a lot hahaha :p But really, since they’re a rookie group I’m not too familiar with them, but I thought it would be fitting to start this series with this popular rookie group, so let’s get started!

Favorite member? Hm, this is a tough one because, as I’ve mentioned before, I don’t know that much about each one of them. They’re all really charming in their own way :3 hahah I’d have to say Mark though, because look at his face! And his 애교 (pronounced: aegyo. definition: cute acts, I guess? haha don’t know how else to explain it :S) AND HIS DANCING! All the members are really great though 🙂

Favorite song? My favorite song of theirs is Playground. 😀 It kind of has an old-school k-pop feel to it.  (does that even make sense?) Haha I don’t know, I think it’s really nice though. I Like You is quite addictive too, especially that high pitched “난 니가 좋아” (translating to I like you, hence the title) in the background, which the more I listen to, the more I dig 😛

One thing that sets them apart from others? Probably their dancing! 🙂 You DEFINITELY have to check out this performance of theirs. The part at 0:48 kills me every time. I approve, hehe.

Overall opinion: Well, there was a lot of hype surrounding them before they debuted, but I think they’re quite talented, and although it’s a bit early on in their career, I’m impressed by what they’ve done until now, and I’ll probably watch out for their future albums and songs. I think I like them because of the Real GOT7 episodes, which does a great job of revealing their personalities, so you should check it out too if you want to know more about them!

GOT7 gets my seal of approval. Do they get yours too? Let me know in the comments below! I’d love what you guys think about this rising rookie group.
