Recently I felt in the mood to do one of these tags because they always seemed like a fun type of post to do. Specially considering I’m still new to this whole blogging thing. Hence I’m constantly on the look out for all sorts of new content to put out there. So with that in mind I sorta just went ahead and typed in “K-pop tag” to see what I would get and this one was the first thing to pop right up. Unfortunately I couldn’t track down the origin of it though. 😮 Many people have done it but there has been no sign of the creator anywhere. I will keep looking because I would love to credit the original but I doubt I’ll find them. If anyone who stumbles on this happens to know who it is feel free to let me know. 🙂 Now on to it.
1. Favorite solo artist
I see we’re beginning with the tough questions huh? 😛 Thinking about it, oh who am I kidding there is no need to think. There is only one correct answer for this and it has obviously got to be Ailee. I think once you get labeled as the Korean Beyonce you have won at life. I would have no reservations calling her the best singer in all of Korea! Of course that is only my personal opinion… just like the rest of my answers on this tag. 🙂 If I had to pick a fave song of hers to recommend you peeps I’d have to go with Don’t Touch Me.
2. TOP 5 Bias Groups
Hmm. My top 5 has been known to change from time to time but for now I suppose my faves would have to be BTS, 4minute(disbanded), Blackpink, Monsta X, and Girls Generation. They are groups that all have a certain edge to them and for sure have a very high energy! But above all else these are groups who also have good range and aren’t afraid to diversify their sound. ^_^
If you are curious, these are good songs that I think represent them fairly well:
BTS- Save me
Blackpink- Playing with Fire
Monsta X- Trespass
Girls Generation- You Think
3. Do you ship anyone?
haha no. I don’t ship anyone in the K-pop scene. I’m not that obsessed…yet anyways. lol Although I do like some bromance and some sismance<—-is that a thing?
4. What fangroup(s) do you identify with?
I don’t normally associate with fandoms because I like to avoid fanwars. With that said however I’m a total ARMY. 🙂
5. How did you get into k-pop?
I don’t remember how but I came across Girl’s Generation’s Gee. I was like O_O. I wasn’t too into the bubblegum style of that particular mv but it was what introduced me to K-pop as a thing. Clearly it was good enough to peek my interest since I went searching for more. 🙂
6. Do you know how to speak Korean?
Nope. 😛 Not against learning though.
7. Have you gone to any kpop concerts?
Oh how much I wish I can go to one! If I had my pick it would be a BTS one for sure. From everything I’ve seen so far they look like they could put on one hell of a show. Any group that can dance as well as them needs to be seen live. ^_^ Just watch this.
8. Do you have any kpop merch?
I know I should buy more physical stuff but it seems I’ve fully embraced the digital age at this point.
9. Do you watch variety shows?
Yes! Yes! Yes! I have watched We got Married and Running Man since they started! I have watched others but those two are my favorites. We got married is a show where two Korean celebs are put together in a fake marriage. The fun is in seeing them play out the life of a newly married couple. Then running man is a show where a core cast plays a variety of games with celeb guests. Check em’ out if you find yourself with some free time.
10. TOP 3 Biases?
Hyuna is the only bias I need. 😀 She was a member of 4minute but has had collab projects and solo stuff too. You might know her as the girl in the subway in Gangnam Style. I mean so many people have seen that MV at this point. lol One of my faves in particular though was her collab with Hyun-seung in Trouble Maker.
11. What was the first KPOP song you immediately liked upon hearing?
This one is kind of old but it was the one that showed me the edgier and sexier side of K-pop.
Chae Yeon- Two of Us
12. A kpop group you really don’t like or don’t want to give a try?
I give everyone a chance. o.o
13. Do ya got a feelin that ur Loof is on fiyah?
14. who is your LEAST favorite idol/ female or male?
15. do you listen to solo artists as much as groups?
I don’t unfortunately. That’s mostly because I like dance choreography that require multiple people. I do fancy Lee Hyori though. *_* It’s been awhile since I have seen her release a new MV but I shall wait patiently. A fave song of hers is one called Bad Girls. The song is real sassy. It’s also very exaggerated and feels kinda comic bookish.
16. what has been your favorite comeback of the year?
It’s still early in the year but so far its gotta be CLC with Hobgoblin. They came back with a song that was really my style. I liked the attitude and it’s similarities with 4minute. ^_^
17. what is your least favorite concept/era from your favorite group?
My favorite groups is BTS and I have liked every concept of theirs so far.
18. has your bias acted in any films or dramas at all?
Hyuna has been in variety shows and has done one film cameo that I know of. If you like behind the scenes stuff mixed in with some reality tv you can watch Hyuna x19 on youtube with subtitles here. It’s fairly recent. :} It’s fun because you can see some contrast between her stage persona and her more everyday persona.
19. Are you one of those ppl that stans over trainees or groups before they debut?
Much respect for all those trainees working hard to achieve their dreams of being an idol. With that said the earliest I follow a group is from debut. There are other groups to keep me busy in the meantime. haha
20.Who was your first bias ever in the KPOP industry?
My very first bias was Sunny from Girl’s Generation. Normally I fall for edgier girls but the way she brought on the cuteness… it was too much even for me. I could not resist. x_x but then she turned edgier herself and I was able to like her even more.
21. If you had a Korean name, what would it be?
I honestly don’t know. Any suggestions?
22.Who would you want as an older brother?
G-dragon… that would probs be weird…
23. Who would you want as an older sister?
I’m not too sure. Need to think about this one.
The entire group of Mamamoo. Even on stage they have a lot of fun and can be plain silly 😛 haha I never get bored watching their behind the scenes antics.
25.If your bias kissed you, how would you react?
R.I.P. me -_-
26.If your bias asked you to marry him/her, how would you react?
R.I.P. me again lol
what a mean question >.<
28. TOP or G-Dragon? (Big Bang)
G-dragon. However, my overall fave from Big Bang will pribs always be Taeyang and this is why:
Ringa Linga Dance performance
29. Which company is your favorite?
Recently it’s got to be YG. Their artists I think have the best Vocals and their lyrics are on point too. I think their songs are easier for international fans to get into. I can’t tell you how many non fans I have converted over here thanks to their groups.
30. In terms of looks, which group is the best?
Blackpink because it’s cray cray how beautiful the girls are!
31. In terms of songs, which group is the best?
BTS. They can do slower emotional songs and faster intense hippity hoppity songs. Although the thing that put ’em over is their positive lyrics.
I Need You
32. Which group would you prefer to be classmates with in real life?
BTS again. They just seem like they would make even the most mundane things really entertaining. If you have never watched their Bangtang Bombs.. you are seriously missing out on some quality stuff.
33. Who would you want as a best friend?
J-hope. He is so underrated. He seems like the funnest of the group to me. With him around I think it would be impossible to ever be sad.
34. Who would you want as a boyfriend/girlfriend?
35. Who would you want as a friend with benefit?
LOLz I would not want that kind of relationship haha
36. Who would you want as a husband/wife?
37. How many kids will you have with him/her?
maybe 2 😛
38. Which kpop star do you wish to have a body like?
Any one that has abs. lol I will get them eventually. 😉
39. Which kpop star do you wish to have a face like?
I quite like my face the way it is. 😛
40. Lastly,which group would you prefer to work with in real life?
I don’t know… well wasn’t that a bit anti climactic. haha
Anyways thanks for checking this out peeps. ^_^
