So...It's 2015 and hopefully a better year for Kpop than 2014 with all the craziness. I apologize and feel awful for not being able to access Dukbokki Time for a long time now. The Weekly MV Reviews have been on haitus since like September and I apologize sincerely, I also am sorry for not posting anything for a long time. Sara has been trying to keep up and I'm thankful that she can. I am also amazed that even though we haven't been posting, we've been getting an average of 100 to maybe even 300 visits on our blog almost every day! So, with that said and done may I present my Top 4 Groups in Kpop.
Kpop is hard to like. You have to say crazy sounding words and understand your idols' language when you may - or may not - know it. You also need an Ultimate Bias, without that Kpop is even harder to like because of all the amazing people! But one of the hardest things is a favorite group! I always think I have finally found my favorite group but then when it comes to voting and it's - for example - F.T.Island against CNBLUE then I can't decide and so I don't have a favorite. If you can vote for one over the other without saying "Oh, well I've liked them longer" or "They win all the time" or "They have more fans so I'll vote for them instead" then you, my chingu, have a favorite group.
How To Know You Have A Favorite Group:
I k I know this is supposed to be my Top 4 Groups but don't worry, I'm getting there! This might be useful to those of you without a favorite group.
Okay, so first thing is first. Do you have a group you really love a lot? Maybe sometimes you feel like they are overshadowing the others? You must have a bias in a group that loved, right? So think of the group and think of the bias in that group. How high ranked is your bias in that group? On a scale from someone you don't like much at all to your UB. Is that bias ranked super high, super low, or average? If he/she is ranked super low then think why. You love that group but your bias is iffy, why? If he/she is average then not bad but not the best either, again, think to yourself. Why? If he/she is ranked super high then great! They are suitable and good and so is the group.
Now let's say that group is nominated in some big award and you're all for it until, of course, another group that you love oh-so dearly is pinned against them and you must choose one to show support for. Who? Well, if the group that you thought about earlier is flat-out who you will vote for with no questions then, they might just be that favorite group of yours and if not then they might not be. Either way you can't tell for sure unless you are at the point of near Sesang to where you want to murder whoever bashes your Oppa/Noona.
And those would be the basics to how to figure out if you have a favorite Kpop group. The key is pretty much to see how far you will support and love them, even if that means voting for them over the other amazing Kpop groups.
If you have any other way of knowing feel free to comment it in the comments!
Now onto my Top 4 Groups. This short list took a very long time to make but it's worth it and I'll explain why I like them as I go through. Please know that I, myself do not have a favorite group. All four of these are tied and I can't decide between them.
B1A4! Now I have liked them for a while longer than most groups and so I automatically have them in my Top 4 Groups, easy. I like them because they are funny and weird and just outrageous with the things they do. Their music is also amazing! I love their songs, I mean, heck, everyone does! Even people who don't like Kpop that much or even at all like their songs! They get along really well and they may argue or fight occasionally but B1A4 are close and you can tell that when they are in front of a camera they aren't lying about how they act and they really don't try to look good either. B1A4 are just a lovable group that anyone can easily like.
I mean look at that weirdness. Before I finish up with B1A4 I will announce my bias....*drumroll*.....It's Gongchan! He was not my first choice in B1A4 because I chose Jinyoung and over time I grew to like Gongchan and now Gongchan holds a very high spot on my Bias List. And how can one not like him? He's so cute!
Okay so I have problems with them. They are BIAS-WRECKERS AND LIFE-RUINERS AND....sorry, they're just that one group that everyone has where you love them to death and then you pick a bias and then you start liking another person but you'll feel bad if you change your bias so you don't but they just make life hard. Yes, BTOB are that group to me (That rhymed). Well, let me explain why I love these idiots. I love their music, all of it. They are hilarious! I started liking them when I started watching their MTV Diaries and it was amazing. I also like their concepts that they have whenever they make a comeback.
My bias is Minhyuk because he is cute and funny and yeah. But I also really like everyone else and of course if they are "that one group" then there must be someone else that I like a lot too, right? Correct. It's Eunkwang. Whenever he sings slow songs, I want to cry and I like his super high ascending cheekbones. But no, seriously. Minhyuk is my bias and he, too is very high up on my Bias List.
Ooh! A girl group! Bet you didn't see that coming...Okay, you probably did but yeah. 2NE1 are my first group that I came to know of back in like 2010 or so. I like them because of their humor, hardwork, cool MVs, great songs, and just everything.
I don't have one bias in 2NE1 because I like them both, yes I have just two but I do love them all as well. My two biases are CL and Park Bom. CL was who I liked since I first saw 2NE1 and I love that she has the whole "Bad Girl-GIZIBE" thing because it's awesome and cool but I love her old-self more and I really like how you can tell that CL hasn't changed. She looks older and she makes different music and is very westernized but she is the same old CL and you can tell when she is on stage or smiling or just sincerely happy. I like Park Bom because she is very inspiring, I mean so are the others too but I look up to Park Bom a lot because she always smiles and is happy and when things get hard she is strong and pushes through it and she did in her Drug Scandal. But I really like her and she is really funny to me.
I am not going to take long on them because they are weird, funny, make great music, and should be awarded for Derp Faces of the Century. I love them because of their ugly faces and weird personalities and I love them even more after seeing them live.
My bias should be know or obvious if you have read our blog posts before because I've said it a million times. My bias is Zico. I love his music, producing skills, dance skills, humor, everything.
Those are my Top 4 Groups! It is nice to post something on here again and I hope you guys enjoyed it! I will be back again and I will work when I can. I hope you guys visit our site often and enjoy it a lot! Thank you! Oh and have you guys had Dukbokki? IT IS AMAZING! I finally had it and it rocks, try it if you haven't. Okay, bye! :)
Today to start 2015 off we will begin with a good old profile! I apologize for the lack of uploads but due to home reasons we don't really have access to the Internet. :( But I found a way today!
JJCC (Double JC): Originally their name was pronounced Double JC for Double Joy Creative, and written as JJCC (which stands for Jackie Chan Joint Culture) but they soon figured out that that having two names didn't make sense and it didn't match JJCC so they dropped the Double JC part. Of course fans say JJCC means Jackie Jackie Chan Chan (as a joke).
What has piqued most people's attention about JJCC is that they're under the management of Jackie Chan, who everyone knows too be a wonderful actor and role model.
