My Bias of Each Group in K-POP

Don’t you lie to me that you like all of the members in [insert group name] because I know deep down in your heart, you have someone that you like maybe just a tiny bit more. So, here’s my bias list for y’all. Share yours if you dare. And yes, I’m in watch of mostly girl groups so that means I’m not really of a fangirl towards many of the K-POP boy groups but there are some that I totally fangirl over. The list of these groups is kind of like ranking from my most favorite to, let’s not say my least because these groups that appear here are only those I support a lot and follow news, while other groups that are not mention is kind of like I-like-this-group-but-not-that-much. Now, I’ll say my top favorites which are Girls’ Generation, T-ARA, f(x), and APINK. The rest is kind of hard to put in order but I attempt to put them. Keep in mind that even though I have those bias, doesn’t mean I don’t like other members in the group because I do.

Girls’ Generation– All… okay, I have to admit that I like Tiffany a little bit more than others. But that does not mean I don’t give the same amount of love to every member. They are my ultimate favorite and my idol. I’m a loyal SONE and will be forever. ♥ But before I gotten to like Tiffany, my bias was Yoona. Actually, I was a little confused as to which one I like more, Yoona or Yuri? They totally looked alike when I first started to know them. Yes, when I first seen them, I thought they all looked alike and don’t lie that when you first saw a bunch of girls together, you knew and can separate them apart from there. I actually started to like Tiffany because she has like, exactly same personality as me. She’s like my K-POP twin. I started to read about her and find out how much of an angel she is. Her personality shines through her eyesmile. Girls’ Generation is really the best and I love their bonding between every each member.

T-ARA– My second favorite group. I can’t lie but yes, my bias is Jiyeon. Since my first watched Music Video that I watched of them, which is “I Go Crazy Because Of You”, I totally fell in love with this cute little dino. She is totally adorable. I also look her eye makeup. Not to mention her acting skills, Dream High 2, my most favorite drama (just have to be Dream High, doesn’t matter what season), was awesome and I felt that Jiyeon was the lead rather than __ (Sora). The ending was upsetting when I totally shipped Rian (Jiyeon) and JB which didn’t end up together even though she also looks good with Jin Yu Jin (Jinwoon of 2AM). After this season, I learned that the next season(s) to come of this drama, couples that looks like they’ll end together will end up with someone else.

f(x)– Oh, how can I left out this group that has brought me to K-POP? If you have read my first post which is “Part of My Life”, you’ll know the full detail of how I fall in love with K-POP. So yea, if you want to know, just go read there, because I don’t want to write something that I already wrote again. It’s pretty long. But one thing is that, I totally fall in love with Krystal since the start so no doubt she is still my bias.

APINK– I’m a pink panda myself and I totally love that they are named after my most adored and favorite obsession color, PINK! When I first watch their Music Video, “I Don’t Know”, I totally loved it and I started my birthday with this song replaying. Chorong, the leader, which look kind of alike Seohyun of Girls’ Generation, is my bias.

SECRET– My gummy Hyosung. She’s such a cutie. I watched her on Oh! My School, which is my first watched variety show where I learned about many K-idols when I first started to like K-POP, and I totally shipped her with Kikwang (BEAST). She also is really funny and cute, so who wouldn’t like her? Oh, how I love the love-triangle between Hyosung, Lee Kikwang (BEAST), and Lee Joon (MBLAQ).

KARA– This one I can say out loud which is Nicole! Actually, when I first started to like them, I liked Hara. But once I get to know them a little more, I felt in love with Nicole’s adorkable personality and her eyesmile.

SISTAR– The awesome rapper, Bora, is of course my bias. She has a really bright personality. She has shown up in Invincible Youth 2 which I’ve only watched a little of it. I’ll be watching Invincible Youth 2 soon because I (again) watched a little bit of Invincible Youth and I loved it just by watching like the first few episodes. I’m sure the second season is also awesome. I somehow feel sad that Sunny of Girls’ Generation leave even though I didn’t even watched that episode yet but because she was with the show since first season, I think it’s pretty sad to see her leave the show. I’ve heard from many people that this show is amazing. I love how the show gives them opportunity to learn things that help people survive. Seeing them working in farms and mud makes me feel like they’re more down to earth and really humble.

4MINUTE– Seriously, Hyuna, you’re amazing. If I haven’t watched her on variety shows and such and just watch her performances on stage, I’ll be like, she’s so sexy. But once I watched her off-stage, she’s a total dork and a cute little girl. She’s quite shy and it kind of a surprised me.

After School– Now, I’m not too sure if it’s Nana or Kahi. But I’ll go with Nana. I seriously need to learn more about After School. I’ll go search for their shows and stuff later. I’ll have to say that Nana is the first to catch my attention when I first saw After School. She’s really pretty and her blonde hair also make her stands out (I’m going to be posting a new article “K-POP Gone Blonde” soon). But I’ll have to admit that sometimes, her face shape appear kind of weird to me.

Girl’s Day– Oh, Minah, Minah, Minah. Her personality is totally bright and uplifted. I also totally love her because of how amazing her vocal is despite that she’s the youngest (maknae) of the group. She’s so cute. I also admire that she is really confident. She was super adorable in Oh! My School when she was pretending to talk on the phone with Lee Hongki (F.T. Island) like they’re a couple. She also confidently said that she is more entertaining than Min (Miss A) since they brought her up because they had similar name.

Miss A– No one other than Suzy! She gained my attention because I watched Dream High, which is my ultimate favorite drama. I seriously hate how these 2 seasons ended. I was totally shipping Hyemi (Suzy) and Jisuk (Taecyeon) which they didn’t end up together. How upsetting to see this horrible ending.

 

Wonder Girls– Who else could it be besides my Sohee? This girl is even cuter than babies sometimes. No joke, her baby face totally makes me want to just squeeze her chubby cheeks.

Brown Eyed Girls– I certainly CANNOT leave out this group. I wasn’t that much of a big fan of both Brown Eyed Girls and 2AM but after I started watching We Got Married, I felt in love with them since the first start. From now still, I love Adam Couple more than any other couple even though I also like other couples too. But no couple can beat them. Now, I’m not too sure who is my bias in this group neither. I totally like Gain of course, but I also like Jea because of her vocal and she’s beautiful. I think I’ll settle with Jea.

2NE1– For me, I’m a new blackjack. I feel so left out actually, being a new fan of this amazing group that has been debuting a long time ago. I didn’t actually like them that much until I watched this 2NE1 Show Season 3 not too long ago and felt in love with their personality. After that, I start to get addicted to their music. I’ve heard of this group so many times from artists in Thailand which really amazed me by how popular they are among the stars themselves. Every artist that I heard of saying 2NE1 is their idol says Park Bom is their favorite. If you watch Star King, you might have watched the episode where 2 girl groups, G20 and Candy Mafia, from Thailand came. I’m a fan of Candy Mafia myself and watched their videos. When asked who’s their idol were, I think all of them said Park Bom of 2NE1. Even my most favorite, Pimmy of SWEE:D (she dropped out of the music industry already because she wanted to focus more on her school to make her parents proud) said that Park Bom is her idol. Now, I think I’m sounding like someone promoting Thai music in a K-POP post which is right now supposed to be talking about 2NE1, but I’m just showing how popular they are among Thai artists. I’m actually not sure which member I like because when I first started to watch them, I liked Sandara. Then, I started to like Bom. But when I saw shows and more Music Videos of them, I think CL is so cool. Oh, do I sound mean to not mention Minzy? I like Minzy too. But yea, to conclude, I think I like, DaBoC (a combination of Sandara, Bom, and CL). That sounds weird. Well, I will say I like CL for now. I think the reason for them to be one of the idols that are leading Hallyu wave despite that they just debut in 2009 is because they’re just out of ordinary, that’s their personal charm of the group.

RaNia– I seriously think they’re the sexiest group of K-POP. What brought me to like them is their song, “Dr. Feel Good”.I didn’t like them that much until I start to watch them on variety shows and stuff. Rather than sexy, they’re cute. I seriously feel surprise when I see people who have a sexy image but in real, they’re super cute and shy. My bias in this group would have to be T-AE.I didn’t thought she looked like ulzzang until I looked through her Twitter photos actually. I think she’s really attractive.

Brave Girls– The rookie group that I think will sweep the Best Rookie Group of this year. I actually started to like them from a fancam that just popped up in my YouTube home page. It was a fancam of Yejin dancing to their own song, “Do You Know”. From that fancam, I thought Yejin was a beauty and started to search more about them. After watching their Music Videos and seeing their photos and such, I still like Yejin. I think this group is really talented and I hope to see more of them.

ChoColat– Oh, I’m so sorry to ChoColat that they gotten down from the list to here. When I first started to like them, they were on my top list. Talking about ChoColat, I really like them because the group’s member is full of foreigner. Now, I know that they’re half Korean. But seriously, they don’t look nothing like Korean. They look rather Western. But that’s why I like them because they have a different feel since I never seen any group with so many foreigners or just one foreigner in a group is actually out of K-POP. But now that there’s one non-racial group, I start to like them. Before, there were 2 Koreans, or just to say in general, Asian. But now there’s only one because ___ left which I don’t know the reason to that. But now, ___ is the only Asian. Now, talking about my bias, it would be Tia but I also really like ___’s lively personality. Many people say that ___ has similar personality to Tiffany of Girls’ Generation since they’re both lively and loud.

Rainbow– Talking about this group, Kyukyung got to be my bias. I think she’s the one who receive the most attention in the group, actually. I knew about her, again, from Oh! My School.

C-REAL– I totally love the song, “No No No No No”. When I first saw it, the boy in the Music Video looks similar and I suddenly shouted out “Thunder (MBLAQ)!” I was fangirling over him. I really like them and one girl that really resemble Hyuna to me, ___, gained my attention. Well, she’s my bias of the group. When I heard “Sorry, But I”, it was my favorite song from them from then on.

5Dolls– I knew about this group because of Hwayoung (T-ARA) because she has a twin in this group. I first watch “Like This Like That” and I got to say that it was super catchy. I then learned that they’re a part of Co-Ed School group. I didn’t know that but I remember hearing about Co-Ed when they got invited to one of the Moon bother’s birthday party in T-ARA‘s Hello Baby. I got to conclude that Hyoyoung is my bias of this group. She’s really pretty just like her twin, Hwayoung of T-ARA.

Dal Shabet– As for this group, I wasn’t sure either. When I started to like them, I liked ___ the most. But looking at her, she has kind of a weird eyebrow to me. But I still like her. But since I started to watch their comeback song, “Mr. Bang Bang”, another member gained more attention from me. ___, to be honest, I didn’t pay much attention to her and didn’t thought she was attractive at first. Also, other members seem so pretty to me after I watch their new Music Video. But if you want to know who my favorite member is, I’m not sure, but I’ll choose ___.

Hello Venus– For this group, I would have to learn more about them since they’re really new to me. But my bias would have to be Alice. She’s just so pretty, you know? She grabbed my attention the most throughout their first Music Video, “Hello Venus”.

 

Now it’s time for boy groups. I don’t have much favorite boy groups so this will be quick.

Super Junior– Oh, how I love my fishy, Donghae. Although I love other members too, I think Donghae is the most attractive and he’s such a handsome guy. I also like Eunhyuk. Oh, I just realized that both of the boys I chose are the two that dances the best in the group. But to be honest, when I started to like Super Junior, I liked Siwon and it’s really no surprise because Siwon is such an attention grabber. Also, Eunhyuk, Leeteuk, and Shindong are like some kind of a sub-variety show group of the group. I love how they’re so entertaining. As for Donghae, he’s such a gentleman and which girl wouldn’t fall for him?

BEAST– Oh my god, skillful dance. If you’re talking about dancing, then all attention will turn to this group. I think they can dance the best aside with MBLAQ. For this boy band, I also fangirl over too… Take for example; I would always fangirl over Kikwang and Doojoon. Since the start, I always like Kikwang. But after watching All My Love (which I couldn’t finish because I couldn’t find all the episodes, how sad), I totally think that Doojoon is so handsome. I find it funny that my bias is Kikwang but I always fangirl over Doojoon more. So, for this, I got to say that Doojoon is my second favorite. But Kikwang is of course my first. Again, I started to like BEAST thanks to Oh! My School.

2PM– Hey, a Thai person! Nichkhun is the reason I pay more attention to this group. Because I’m also Thai, I find it amazing for a Thai person to be wandering around in K-POP music industry at first. Also, Nichkhun is such a handsome and yet again, I got to say that he’s the most romantic guy when I watched We Got Married (KhunToria couple). But after getting to know them better, I think my bias is Wooyoung. He so super cute, but at the same time, he can be so charming. He recently released he’s own solo album, “Free, Sexy, 23” with a Music Video titled “Sexy Lady”.

2AM– Yes, I’m a One Day fan (2PM + 2AM = One Day). The reason I started to like 2AM actually didn’t start from watching We Got Married but because of when 2AM visited 2PM’s Idol Army Show for the Christmas Special. But yes, We Got Married did indeed made me fell in love with 2AM alongside with Brown Eyed Girls too. But I think I started to watch We Got Married (Adam Couple) because I found them really humorous. I wasn’t at all disappointed with any show that 2AM are featured in because they can make any show more entertaining. Now, for the bias, it would be KkabKwon, Jo Kwon. He’s really the best with he’s dance moves and he’s ability to dance even better than a lot of girls. I find it really surprising that 2AM don’t gain that much attention like other groups would. I mean, if JYP didn’t put 2AM and 2PM as a group like that, say that Seulong is in 2PM, will he gain more fans? But I’m really proud to be a I AM and I’m also thankful that JYP put them in a group like this. I also love the friendly bonding relationship of 2AM and 2PM because I actually didn’t know they were trained together until I watched Hot Blood. Recently, Jo Kwon had made he’s own solo album too and with the titled song, “I’m Da One”, Jo Kwon finally get to have more energetic song other than ballad songs that 2AM always produce.

CN Blue– I’ve never thought I would like rock music band or anything. But with K-POP, everything is possible. I really like CN Blue and their music. I started to like CN Blue a lot because I like YongSeo couple in We Got Married. They’re really talkative unlike I would think those kind of groups would be. If talking about bias, then I would choose Yonghwa. He’s really entertaining and really talkative. He’s also really handsome and attractive, don’t you think?

MBLAQ– Whoo ray, here’s another awesome skillful dancing group. If talking about my bias here, Lee Joon would always come to my mind. And again, I knew him because of Oh! My School. He’s really flexible and can do great martial arts. I also like Thunder. He’s such a good looking man.

BIG BANG– BIG BANG just like 2NE1 did not gain my attention until I watch when they appear on the variety shows. I wasn’t into styles like YG that much but after seeing their personality, I gain more interest in them. Again, like 2NE1, I’m confused who I like the best. At first, it was Seungri. Then, G-Dragon. After that, I think Taeyang is also attractive. And then here comes TOP. Oh, I didn’t mention Daesung. Sorry Daesung. I love you. Well, to conclude, I would say Taeyang G-Dragon.

SHINee– Oh, SHINee, I never thought I would like you to be honest. When I first started watching them, they look so thin like a girl. But later on, I really like them and they’ve became more handsome day by day. For me, I’ve always liked Jonghyun. I think he’s like the manliest of the group. But I also like Key because of he’s resemblance kkab like Jo Kwon. With the “Sherlock” song, I actually start to like them for real now.

Soloists I like the most: Ailee Han, IU, BoA, G.NA.

Phew, finally done. I’m really proud to be a K-POP fan and I hope you all are. One thing I love about K-POP and why K-POP stands out more than other music that exist is that most of their artists are in groups. I love how every member carry their own charms and personality, making every group different in their own way. Some said that K-POP fandom won’t last that long but as long as we keep supporting K-POP, I know that K-POP can last even longer than 30 years. Let’s keep giving them love and support because they need us for their strength and energy. K-POP forever. I hope you guys enjoyed this post. I know I’ve been posting a lot of posts but that’s because I’ve written it but the internet wasn’t working so that’s why there’s a lot of posts up today. I think I got off topic as my list goes on because I’m trying to explain that other members have charms that I also like too. Anyways, hope you enjoy it and let me know who’s your bias and why.

So, as you guys all know, K-POP is the big thing right now. They’re taking over the music industry and are growing tremendously as the day pasts. Either you’re new to K-world or have been around the K-world for a quite long while like me, you’ll notice that these days, so many groups/ soloists’ populations are increasing with just a blink of an eye. They are battling each other to be able to reach the top. And just to let you know, not every single group gets the amount of attention they deserved. Because so many idol groups/soloists are pouring like water in the waterfalls, there are no doubts that not many of them successfully have a great debut. Just look at it, there’s only 3 big entertainment company that is leading the Hallyu wave right now, and that is SM, JYP, and YG. Other than those big 3, then you either success or you either falls to the non-popular groups. And like JYP said, “You either got it, or you don’t.”

As you all may know, groups that are leading the Hallyu waves are: Of course, it’s nothing other than, “Girls’ Generation.” Also, “Wonder Girls”, “2NE1”, “Super Junior”, and “BIG BANG” that have been long leading the Hallyu wave. And as you can see, these groups are all under SM/JYP/YG.

Also, in other music industry, the soloists might be the most successful other than groups which is really rare in other music industry. K-POP is well known for having many groups in the industry. Rather than the soloists being the most popular, it’s the groups. But there are some soloists that success such as Lee Hyori, Rain (Bi), BoA of the older generations. Some of the new leading soloists such as IU and G.NA are also successful in their debuts.

But not many does the K-POP fans knows, that behind every each idols, there’s sweats, tears, hardships, and many obstacles/problems they’ve had to put through in order to just debut.

The process is not easy at all. It’s very competitive as time pasts and much more aspiring trainees/idols are lining up, wishing that they’ll become a K-idol too. There are so many people auditioning, which make it even harder just to become a trainee. Many of the idols had to audition more than 10 times! Even when they get in as a trainee, there are no guarantees that they’ll be able to make their debut. Some trainees might drop out because of the reasons such as; they are falling behind in school, no time to study, stress, miss their family (which some don’t live in Korea where they are trained at the head quarter), or they might have interest in something else more than singing/dancing (which some of the idols realized it later on after they’ve already debut). Take for example, Kibum of Super Junior and ___ of After School, they dropped out of the group because they wanted to pursue their acting career. Also, Park Soyeon of T-ARA used to be a trainee in SM Entertainment. She was about to debut with the Girls’ Generation when she felt that she wasn’t ready and needed more time. She then later on signed with Core Media Entertainment and became a member of T-ARA, a 7 member girl group.

Once you become a trainee, they’ll either let you come to Korea and train there and use the dorm as your place to live. You might not miss your family at first, but as time passes and you see families having fun together or your friend’s parents comes to visit them because they live in Korea, you’ll come to a realize that you misses your family. Another thing is that you’ll have to limit your time of study because after you’re finish with your long school day, at the end of the day, you’ll have to go to the head quarter and train until night. If your place is far away from the company’s building, say you live with your parents, not the company’s dorm, you’ll have to either take a bus or subway. And like many other trainees that are now successful with their career, a lot of them use subways to get home. For what I know because I’ve been searching a lot about SM Entertainment since I would like to sign there, their schedule is like; Wake up, go to school, go back to home/dorm, do homework, at 7:00PM have to be at the building to train, then go home at 10:30PM. That is the schedules of the SM trainees’ schooldays. But you won’t be able to go hangout with your friends/family on Saturday either, because you’ll have to go to train again. So, that left you with Sunday which you can use that time to go to church or you can just relax.

Now, it’s not that hard if you use your time in the right way. But of course even though you do use your time in the right way, you’ll still have a hard time because you don’t get the normal life as other students and friends would get. You don’t get freedom.

Once they debut, it’s not like they’re going to get a day off or two either. They’ll have packed schedules with even less times to sleep. But even so, they do enjoy having packed schedules. They’ll get to show themselves to the public more and get well known. For those of you who always say stuff like, “The CEO should let them get some rest”, “Oh, they look so tired”, etc. Well, don’t you want to see your favorite idols more frequently? Of course, we do.

Other than keep saying those stuff, just keep supporting them and give them strength. After all, an idol won’t have any strength and energy without a fan’s support. So keep on supporting them and give them lots of love. If you get a chance to go to fan signs and such, you should write a heart-warming letter for them. Also, when you’re a fan of a group, please don’t make other members feel left out. Like me for instants, I love every each member of Girls’ Generation. It’s not wrong to have a bias, but make sure to give the same amount of love to every member. I always hate when I see more cheering for particular members. When I become an idol, I sure don’t want that. Things that keep an idol going is supports and love they receives.

Also, many might not know, but everyone thought that being idols are such an easy thing once you debut. You don’t have to go to school, and as a result you don’t have to study. But little does they know, many idols that are still going to school today have to struggle during their little free time to study and catch up to their missing works. Idols like Seohyun from Girls’ Generation, as you guys know, cherish school a lot and she’s known as the brain of the whole K-POP industry. The one person that always try hard and good at many things, she’s the unusual maknae. There are also some that drop out of school to pursue their career. Take for example, BoA, who didn’t go to college because of her busy schedules.

Also, a word for those who might be reading this that also is an aspiring trainees wanting to become an idol or you might be a trainee yourself right now, please DO NOT give up on the dreams you have. Always look forward. There’s nothing impossible in this world if you just make it possible. Another thing is make sure that this is the only thing you want, that if it means to give up your whole life to just become a K-idol, you’ll still do it. Or else, you’ll just waste your life. I’m serious. Make sure that you’ve wanted this for a really long time. If not, wait a little bit and see if this is really what you want. You only have one life, you know. So, make it worth. Another VERY important part of this is, MAKE SURE THIS IS YOUR PASSION! If not, then don’t go for this path just for fame and money, or even for such a crazy reason that you want to be a singer just because you like [insert the name of your favorite idol], not because you actually want to become a singer because you have passion for it. To tell you the truth, it’s not worth it if you go for that path if you don’t have passion for it at all. Because later on in life, you’ll realized that you shouldn’t have gone on that path and should’ve been running after what you really want. So, take your time and don’t rush. Your dreams won’t run away from you if it’s really something that you cherish.

Make your dreams become reality. And remember, nothing will come to you if you don’t work hard for it. Good luck to all and hope to see you on my next posts.

If you love K-POP or just music in general, you should totally try to listen to T-POP. T-POP stands for Thai pop. T-POP is great and they should be recognized more. I will give you some suggestion to a good music in T-POP. T-POP has great vocals and they can also dance. This is not related but for a K-POP fans who are not Thai, when you say Thailand/Thai, you’ll probably think of Nichkhun (pronounce Nich-cha-kun, but Korean mispronounced it as Nick-Khun so that name stucked with him). So, if you like Nichkhun, think of  it as listening to the music in the language that Nichkhun speaks. Also, these artists are more active in social network than any other artists I can find. They take their time to actually talk to their fans. They do a lot of fan services and yes, it’s really them. There’s many proves so I know that they’re not fake. So, if you would want to have their social service site, you can comment in this post and I’ll give you it. Let’s start!

KAMIKAZE

Formed in early 2007, Kamikaze has some best artists in Thailand. For teens and any ages, they gather awesome artists and make amazing music.

Until now, Jinny haven’t made comeback with any own group except for the special project, ‘Sevendays 2’, a second version of ‘Sevendays’ which Pimmy, Jinny, and Meen was together. To be honest, Pimmy is my favorite out of all T-POP and when she leaved, my heart sank and I guess that’s how I gotten into K-POP. But I still follow T-POP except I’m not that obsessed anymore.

There are much more great artists but these are the one that I like. Don’t forget to check out their music.

As many of you guys may know, many K-idols are dying their hair colors. Not only brown, which is natural or just blonde, it’s a lot of other crazy colors like; red, blue, pink, purple, you name it! But today I want to talk about “the blondes” in K-POP.

The earlier blondes are, for example; Jessica and Hyoyeon of Girls’ Generation. But many of the idols today have/had dyed their hair blonde. I don’t know for you guys, but I really think blonde fits Asian faces. I guess K-POP makes anything look good but some are saying that they don’t like their idols to dyed “unnatural” colors. Well, it’s their hair and their life guys, deal with it. I think blonde makes them stands out because it’s a really bright color.
Anyways, I want to bring out some of the people who I think fits their blonde hair color. I wouldn’t be able to name it all, just so you know. Since there’s a lot, like a BUNCH, of the idols that dyed their hair blonde. I’ll just bring out some that I have had my eyes on, and yes, I’m more into girl groups, that’s why their might not be a lot of the boys.

SNSD- Jung Jessica (Known as the legend of blonde in K-POP, she was starred in the musical, “Legally Blonde”.)

Image
SNSD- Hwang Tiffany (She has a little blood in her that makes her look kind of foreign. I think it’s her nose that make her look foreign, don’t you?)

Image
SNSD- Kim Taeyeon (Since the first comeback stage of their song, The Boys, I was totally awed, in a good way, of her hair.)

Image
SNSD- Lee Sunny (Even though it’s just a wig, she did dyed her hair blonde before in their “Oh!” Music Video.

Image

SNSD- Kim Hyoyeon (Known as the one who dyed her hair in bunch of colors since before debuting.)

Image
T-ARA- Park Jiyeon (Before, I thought the color was too light and it doesn’t fit her at all. But after watching their Music Video, Day By Day, I really like it. She also had blonde hair in “Time to Love”, the song featuring Supernova.)

Image
f(x)- Park Luna (The first member of f(x) who dyed her hair blonde.)

Image
f(x)- Song Victoria (Their comeback song, Electric Shock, was totally awesome and I can’t stop looking at Victoria’s hair.)

Image
f(x)- Liu Amber (Her tomboyish look finish off with the blonde hair color.)

Image
Ailee (The soloist that I like the most, her hair in Dream High 2 really make her stands out and I hope she go back to this color again. Not like that I don’t like her brown hair, by the way. And like I said about SNSD’s Tiffany, since she’s born in America or might have a little blood in her that make her kind of look foreign, her face or maybe her nose make her look a bit like foreigner.)

Image
SECRET- Jun Hyosung (This color seriously fit her more than her purple hair.)

Image
SECRET- Song Ji Eun (I think she’s really overshadowed by her other group members but I really like Jieun and I think she’s really pretty. She fits her blonde hair.)

Image
SECRET- Zinger (She’s gotten prettier recently, don’t you think? Maybe, it’s because she grew her hair longer.)

Image
KARA- Nicole (Her eyesmile makes her hair color even brighter.)

KARA- Gyuri (How can we left out this beautiful lady that look like Japanese out? With h er beautiful vocal and features, she totally rocked the blonde hair.)

Girl’s Day- Kim Yura (The pretty Yura also dyed her hair blonde.)


4MINUTE- HyunA (The cute girl off-stage, sexy on-stage, she is known for being called “The Next Lee Hyori” and she also debut with Wonder Girls.)


4MINUTE- Gayoon (The girl who has great vocals, she’s really charismatic.)


BoA (A talented soloist that became an idol since young age, her hair really makes her look more playful. Although, I love her black hair too but it’s not the point of this post.)


After School- Lee Nana (BaNana~ Haha, oh, I realized that banana is also yellow, referring that yellow is alike blonde.)


After School- Raina (She definitely became more prettier but she’s still cute as always.)


After School- Lizzy (She has matured after their comeback, Flashback, which I totally loved.)


After School- Bekah (I haven’t been able to get to know her better but she was really cool when I saw her in After School’s old Music Videos. Being graduated like Kahi, I really wish there wasn’t this kind of system in After School. Bekah graduated because she wanted to pursue her dream as a designer. Anyways, I hope to see their individual work become successful.)


Wonder Girls- Ye Eun (I was kind of disappointed that “The Wonder Girls” that was on TV on Nickelodeon channel was kind of short for it to be called a “movie”. The commercials were also taking like, half of their movie time. But yea, they did a good job promoting. Let’s give them round of applause for that. Also, their new song “Like Money” featuring AKON was awesome. Ye Eun looked totally stunning and so did the other girls. Hope they’ll be more successful in the U.S.)


2NE1- CL (Oh, yes, here it is, the girl group that is totally out of ordinary. CL, who is the leader/rapper of the group despite that she’s younger than her two unnies, Park Bom and Park Sandara.)


2NE1- Park Bom (Huge eyes with blonde hair, oh yeah!)


Miss A- Bae Suzy (Knowing about her in my most favorite drama, Dream High, I think she looks totally pretty with her blonde hair.)


Rainbow- Jisook (I knew about her because there was an article saying she’s a look-alike of Kim Taeyeon of Girls’ Generation. I think she’s too skinny, I don’t know why. When I saw Rainbow’s “A”, I really thought she needs to gain more weight. But other than that, she’s really cute.)


Hello Venus- Alice (The new girl group that just debut not too long ago, Alice totally stole the whole spotlight with her beautiful features and great vocal.)


RaNia- Di (The sexy rapper, of course has to have blonde hair.)


G.NA (Back with a new single, “2HOT”, making the K-POP world stunned with her sexy dances again.)


AOA- ChoA (Member from the newest girl group also has dyed her hair blonde.)


AOA- Yookyung (She is the coolest looking one out of all the 8 members in AOA.)


Now it’s time to bring the boys out. ♪ B-bring the boys out ♪
2PM- Jang Wooyoung (Oh yes, here’s the cutie baby-faced Ang Ang who has just released his own solo album, “Free, Single, 23”. Looking hot as ever, he’s titled song, “Sexy Lady” really grabs my attention.)


2PM- Nichkhun Horvejkul (The first Thai of K-POP, which I’m proud to say I’m Thai too. He’s such a handsome guy and when I first saw him in “Cabi Song”, I never thought he was the Thai person of 2PM since he was the one that was attractive to me in the Music Video. I later discovered that he’s the Thai person when my friend told me at school. He recently got into a car accident.)

2PM- Jay (Even though he’s not in 2PM anymore, I still consider him as one of the member in 2PM.)


Super Junior- Eunhyuk (Here’s the monkey faced, Eunhyuk. He’s such a handsome young man. So funny and attractive. My 3 years old brother and 1 year old sister are so addictive to their song, “A-CHA”. Whenever this song is on, my 1 year old sister just starts to dance. How cute.)

BEAST- Dongwoon (He look really handsome with this color since he has American face.)

BEAST- Yoseob (Cutie of the group, also take care of the Main Vocal.)


SHINee- Kim Jonghyun (The only one that has muscular body in the group, we all know, it’s Jonghyun.)


SHINee- Kim Kibum (He’s stage name is Key. This kkab also has blonde hair.)


SHINee- Lee Taemin (This little fella has grown up and he’s maturing as a beautiful handsome gentleman.)


BIG BANG- G-Dragon (Of course, we couldn’t leave out this cute little boy who is shockingly, cool on stage.)

MBLAQ- Lee Joon (The ace of MBLAQ dyed his hair blonde too!)

MBLAQ- Thunder (The younger brother of one of the leading K-POP group, which is no one other than 2NE1’s Park Sandara. He is known for he’s great looks, making him and he’s sister, “The Good Looking Siblings of K-POP.”)


MBLAQ- Mir (Whenever I see him, I always get him mixed up with F.T. Island’s Lee Hongki.)


F.T. Island- Lee Hongki (When I saw him in Oh! My School, which is my first ever variety show I’ve watched of K-POP and it helped me to learn more idols when I just started to like K-POP, I didn’t think he was attractive. But looking at him now, he’s really handsome.)


TEEP TOP- L.Joe (Here’s my bias of TEEN TOP.)

Well, that’s all idols with blonde that I can think of (ones that have blonde that actually fits them). I hope you guys enjoy this post. Thank you for reading and see you next time!

The Start of a Miracle

One day, I was just being bored like usual and reached out for my iTouch.

I don’t know why I clicked on “Video”, but I did.

And I saw a bunch of K-POP MVs downloaded by my cousin who likes K-POP.
I went to Thailand to visit and while at there, I let my cousin to use my iTouch.

I clicked one of the video, didn’t know that the miracle will happen.

The song started to play.

♪ Do do it, Chu~ It’s true, true, true, true it’s You~ Do do it, Chu~ ♪

I started to pay close attention to it. It was nothing like I’ve seen before in my entire life.

With the upbeat melody, cool dance choreography, pretty 5 girls singing, I started to smile and think, “Oh, this song is pretty… cool!” 

I looked at the video, it says, “f(x) – Chu~”.
From then, I started to listen to that song. But one day, I was just internet surfing and somehow I was on YouTube.

So, I said to myself, “Why not write “f(x)” since I liked their song, Chu~, maybe they’ve released other cool songs!”

So, from there, started the miracle… me being a K-POP fan.

I started to watch their song, Nu ABO. I don’t remember how I got started to like other K-POP groups… maybe related videos?

Being a K-POP fan 

It has been about 1 year and a half. Hmm, looking at that, 1 year and a half… isn’t that short?
Then, why do I feel like I’m already a part of a family?
I guess time doesn’t matter as long as you support your favorite idol the right way.

In those time, I started to become a part of a BIG family, a “S♥NE.”
Being a “S♥NE,” and a K-POP fan in general, has… changed my life?

I started to be more interested in a lot of things like Korean culture, Korean language, fashion, cosmetics,  and not to mention, Korean food!

If I didn’t found out about K-POP, I would probably not be on internet often, become a fan of some T-POP group or solo since I am Thai and I used to like them before K-POP came to my life (I still listen to their music sometimes), probably would have more savings, wouldn’t exercise and/or try to eat healthier, and a lot of other things.

But thankfully, I’ve found it! And I usually would lost my fandom for someone in about a year or two.

But K-POP survived and I don’t think I’ll ever lose my obsession for it. I’ve been sucked into a K-POP land and I’ll be stuck there for the rested of my life.

My parents, mostly my Mom, would always say, “You’re watching/listening to this Korean stuff again?”, “How do you even listen to them when you don’t even understand Korean?”, and all those other stuff.

Yes, that’s true. I don’t speak or understand  Korean but in the music world, it doesn’t matter where in the world you are, what language you speak, what ethnicity you are, what country you’re from, or even how old you are. Why? Because music is for everyone, and yes, I mean EVERYONE. Music is for enjoyment and even though I don’t understand, I don’t think there’s any language barrier. I actually tries to learn Korean just so that I can understand what they’re saying. See what K-POP can do to a person?

Now, I don’t just enjoy listening to their music or their stage personality. The thing that I love above that is their TRUE personality, their bonding between each other that gives me a warm family-feels, and how they can make me smile without knowing, laugh until I cry, and cry like I’ve been holding my tears for years.

I feel like I can connect to them and I believe other true K-POP fans could be able to say that too. I’m not the only person in this world who gives in my life for K-POP.

Going back to being a “S♥NE”, this make me realized who I really am and what I really want to become.

You know how when you like some groups that has more than one person, you usually pick one person to like the most.

But this is not the case, I love ALL of my 9 girls and no one less than other. Of course I do have my bias, but I give my love towards all 9 girls.

Being a loyal/true S♥NE, you have to remember to support them always and always believe in our girls. I, myself, believe that the person they showed on camera and off-camera is their true selves and that they’re not faking their personality.
My mom and the media will always say, “You don’t know the person behind the camera, because they can hide their dark true identities and fake themselves in front of the camera.”
But for me, K-POP and/or Girls’ Generation, to me are true and real. The person I see in TV shows and variety shows and what they said, because I am a S♥NE or in general, K-POP fan, I believe in their words because if I have a chance to become  an idol, I would definitely show my true personality and only hoping that people can except the real me because I cannot be anybody else.

My Dream Career
When I was young, I used to pretend that I’m a radio with my family and they’ll turn on the radio, then I’ll start to sing and dance automatically.

I didn’t think of it that serious since I was just a kid and didn’t think of my future ahead yet. But now that I’m growing up, I started to wonder, what do I want to be when I grow up as my career?

Then I realized that during those times of happiness or sadness, the only thing that can connect to my feelings is nothing other than music.

And since I love K-POP for their many different genres of music, I decided that I would want to become a K-idol.

Of course, I know become idol, or even just a trainee takes lots of effort and passion, I know if I just word hard and have passion for music, I can be able to achieve my dreams.

When I feel like no one can understand me, music does. I cannot express how much I love music or my passion for music, because it’s overloaded.

My mom always tell me that I should be a doctor. Of course, parents would want you to become something that they don’t have to worry about since being a doctor, it’s like the top job and you can also receive a lot of money by working. But I can’t. If I become something else, then… that’s not me. I wouldn’t have true happiness, I wouldn’t be able to do what I love… not saying that doctor or other jobs are bad (my aunt and uncle are doctors) but it’s just that everyone has different interests and passion. My mom always tell me I could never do it… but I believe in myself. And I will make everyone proud of me and prove that nothing is impossible. Seohyun taught me that, “If your dream is alive, then one day it will come true.”

Tiffany also said, ”Everything will be good as long as you do your best. Because if you do, there will be no regrets.”

She also said, ”I want to continue singing. As I get older, I want to be a singer that has an endless passion for music and stage performances.”

THAT is the true passion for music. This is why I love these girls so much. I feel like I can connect to their words and they always say something inspiring… Keke.

Thank you K-POP, for everything.

I know K-POP won’t last forever but this is just the start. K-POP has a long way to go and as long as there are still loyal fans, K-POP can last more than 30 years (and I said MORE than!).

We would want to keep this amazing one-of-a-kind treasure for the next generations to come, right?
K-POP, being a fan of you, I have NO regrets.
