Junhyung & Hara Part Deux

June 30th, 2011 (11:14 am)

After writing that last entry, I thought I could let this issue go, but I keep thinking about it! I'm just so irritated by it all D:

I'm not pressed about Junhyung having a girlfriend. Sure, there's some jealousy there, but I'm not jelly of Hara dating Junhyung. I'm jealous of their situation - that these two young, talented, good-looking, and famous idols are dating each other. Personally, I don't care that he's going out with someone and I don't know enough about Hara to judge if she's "right" for him or not. And anyway, since their debut, BEAST has made it pretty clear that Junhyung likes to play the field. Part of being in show business is getting the chicks, the fame, and the money. Even though I rather like the idea that BEAST still sleeps in those bunk beds, I'm pretty sure that it's a major drag for Junhyung. lol. He's young, famous, wealthy, and people tell him he's sexy all the time, so of course he'd want to get some tail. Hell, if I were him, I would flirt shamelessly with all those cute idols backstage too XD So, Junhyung being a guy and having guy needs doesn't bother me. What does bother me is the way he went about dating her...

If he were a solo artist, I wouldn't give a shit since the wrath of his fans would fall just on him. But he's not a solo artist and he should have thought more about those 5 other guys whose dreams he put in jeopardy by being so careless on those dates. Since their debut, BEAST has been meticulous about keeping their fans happy and staying away from controversy. After all, just one scandal can derail your entire career. The fact that Junhyung was so sloppy about concealing his dates with Hara indicates to me that he didn't give a shit that anyone was watching and IMHO that boils down to just plain arrogance on his part. That is what pisses me off about him dating Hara. His arrogance. Junhyhung is so full of himself that he doesn't give a fuck if the paps are watching and if the shitstorm of anger from the fans rains down on the other members too, then so be it. If he had done this after BEAST had been around for a few more years, it wouldn't have mattered as much because by then, the fans and non-fans alike would be able to separate Junhyung from BEAST as a whole. They have a lot of dedicated fans now, but it's only been two years! People seem to recognize their music, but the only members who have a presence in the media are Doojoon, Gikwang, and Yoseob. I feel like my boys Hyunseung and Dongwoon are still unknown to the public. Why couldn't Junhyung reign in his ego long enough to let Hyunseung and Dongwoon get more media exposure before he sprung this on the fans? He's not new to the industry. He knows how the game is played. There's a reason why no one in Big Bang, SNSD, Wonder Girls, 2PM, 2AM, etc. go on public dates. I'm sure they all date privately, but they know better than to flaunt that shit for the paparazzi to see! They know that the fans never react favorably to idols dating in public and I like to think that these respective idols are putting the good of their groups before their libidos. I mean did it never cross his mind that the fans would be upset and that he could be putting his group mates at risk for ridicule as well? That part of it is what really pisses me off!! His inability to think about the other guys in the group and his impatience to wait until the timing was right before he started dating publicly. Kara will be fine. They've been around longer than BEAST and their members have done things (jobs and such) that are independent of the group. I'm not worried about them, but I feel like my boys (not Junhyung. The hell with him) are the losers in all this. And where the hell were the managers! What the fuck do they get paid for?? What the hell CUBE. You need better personnel keeping things in check D:<

Like I mentioned before, fans leaving the fandom won't just hurt Junhyung, it's going to hurt all the boys. It makes me mad that he wasn't thinking about them and that he was only concerned with himself and his own happiness. Doesn't he remember all the shit they went through to get to where they are now? All the rejection and public disappointments? How could he be so willing to taint the careers of his group mates just so he could date some girl? I can't get over his conceit and his selfishness. I remember when BEAST debuted, he used to be so conscientious and careful about maintaining their image. I don't think I'm imagining this, but Junhyung and Doojoon always seemed to be monitoring what was said in their interviews. It's funny because Hyunseung is being super open about his 4D-ness these days, but the truth is that he's been like that since Day 1 :D In BEAST's early interviews, Junhyung is often standing and sitting next to him not because they're "Junseung" or anything. I think he was there on purpose to keep an eye on Hyunseung and to keep him in check. Today, when Hyunseung drifts off and spaces out, the fans take it in stride because we're used to it. It's a part of his personality ^^ So, whatever happened to that responsible Junhyung? The guy that seemed to be really interested in protecting BEAST's image? The change has been gradual, but it's like he's a different guy now and he has different priorities...

In my last entry I referred to Junhyung as being a fame whore. I don't know what it is, but the Junhyung in BEAST today doesn't seem like the same guy from two years ago. Something has changed and it's not just him being in love either. He just doesn't strike me as being quite as humble as he used to be. The other boys (Yoseob in particular) still give off this air of being grateful to the fans for helping them to get to where they are today. Sometimes, it breaks my heart to read Yoseob's tweets. He's seems overly concerned with B2UTY. Maybe it took that rumor about him having a girlfriend to remind him of how powerful the fans really are? I just don't get that same level of concern from Junhyung anymore. That humble vibe I used to get from Junhyung just doesn't radiate with me. He seems really cool and unaffected these days. At fansignings and other events, it's like he's just going through the motions, but would rather be somewhere else... I wonder if maybe his change in behavior has anything to do with him hanging out with those other idols. When he started hanging out with the chocoballs, I was happy for him. If I were an idol, I'd want to kick it with other young and famous idols too. Plus, since Junhyung looks like he's on track to produce music one day, I think it's great that he's widening his social network and getting all these contacts. The downside to all this though is this feeling I get that he's being a social climber. Heechul, Mithra, Hongki, and now his famous idol girlfriend, Goo Hara. He's climbing that social ladder with a vengeance. lol. But there's an arrogance and a disingenuousness about it all... I don't know a damned thing about Junhyung's relationships with these idols, but the other boys have famous friends too, it's just that their friendships seeem different somehow. Doojoon being bffs with Jokwon for exampe feels natural and real. It's probably because they have history and really are bffs in RL, but what's different is that they don't throw the fact that they're friends in the fans' faces. Same with Hyunseung. He could name drop GD, TOP, etc., but he doesn't. Even though it's not like Junhyung is name dropping or uploading a ton of selcas of him with his famous buddies, I just can't help but get this sense that he's trying too hard to be apart of their world. He wants to be in the big time too soon and it just rubs me the wrong way.

I really should stop reading the comments by the Kb2uties. As an international fan, I'm upset over Junhyung throwing his group mates under the bus, but the fans over there are more upset ;___; One b2uty commented that although she didn't care about Junhyung anymore, she still loved the other 5 members, so she would keep supporting BEAST. Thankfully, that seems to be the general consensus in the fandom now. Junhyung may have been a selfish ass, but he's not representative of the group as a whole. But man, I do wonder how his stans are taking this whole thing... On one of his dates with Hara, he was wearing a Givenchy t-shirt that a fan gave him. I ID'd it on style_b2st. The shirt was at least $300 - maybe close to $400 based on the conversion rate. Only a dedicated fan would drop that kind of cash on some guy she doesn't have a "real" relationship with. I imagine she can't be jumping with joy at the news of him dating... This isn't important, but I wonder if this will impact the number of fangifts he gets from now on. Not only that, but in some of those Dispatch paparazzi photos, Junhyung was in the driver's seat of a car. Was it his car?? Because I maintain that b2st fashion blog, I know how much their clothes cost, but the whole car thing ain't making me happy either. If Junhyung has the cash to buy his own car, then why are fans dropping in upwards of $500 for t-shirts and shoes for him? That doesn't just apply to Junhyung, but all the idols out there that are making bank. I often wonder about those new boy groups that have like 8 members. They'd probably be naked if it weren't for sponsors ^^ Not sponsors that provide upscale clothing from foreign brands, but homegrown Korean brands like Feltics, Colonize, and Pacumong.

I should stop here. I feel better after writing this stuff down ^____^ It's all been swirling around in my head and the anger I felt at Junhyung was eating away at me. I know idols are human and all that, but what I like about the BEAST fandom is that, for the most part, it's a happy and drama-free fandom. These 6 boys sort of rose from the ashes to emerge as one of Korea's better known idol groups. In just 2 short years, they turned antis into fans. Their story is hopeful and inspiring. I imagined that the 6 of them were as close as brothers and that they pushed and supported each other to become successful. I look at their friendship and I wish that I had the same sort of solidarity with the people in my real life. When stuff like this happens, I realize that I've just been projecting things on BEAST. Junhyung being reckless and selfish like that showed me that my views of the bonds between the members is just a fantasy ;___; Those 6 boys aren't a family. They're essentially co-workers and they all have the same flaws that the rest of us have. I know all this, but I really put a lot of faith in their friendship... Freaking Junhyung D: Thanks to that jackass, I can't listen to BEAST songs now without wanting to cuss him out.

Junhyung and Hara...

June 29th, 2011 (10:07 am)

WOW. It never crossed my mind that Junhyung would be dating Go Hara!! I got the impression that he was dating someone, but I never even considered her O____o Dayum, Junhyung. You snagged a big one!! I don't think Hara is on as many lists as Yoona, but she's probably up there in terms of desirable female idols! If he's happy, then I'm happy for him. I always thought he would be the first to come out and publicly declare that he was dating someone...I just never thought it would be this soon! Plus, they've only been an item for a month, so why the big rush to announce it? They probably weren't looking to announce it, but they were really sloppy about hiding it from the press >__<

Anyway, when I heard the news, I thought back to BEAST's promotions since their debut and realized that they were often on the same music shows as Kara. Both groups performed at KMF and at one point, weren't they both up for the same mutizen? I even rewatched that episode of B2ST Almighty - the one where they filmed their ghetto Mystery MV. Kara and SNSD were in it and I paid extra close attention to Junhyung and Hara. I didn't notice any furtive glances or anything... I actually thought there was a lot more flirting going on between the Soshi girls and my boys ^^ Since CUBE and DSP are smaller than the Big 3, I guess it makes sense that they would have meetings with one another and that their idol groups would have a lot of opportunities to see each other in other settings besides a tv studio or soundstage. I'm pretty ambivalent about this Junhyung news, but I wonder how I would react if the paparazzi revealed pics of Hyunseung dating someone... Truth be told, I've never fantasized about dating Hyunseung or anything remotely like that. This is going to sound completely crazy, but I feel mostly maternal towards him ^___^ I feel protective of him and I want him to be happy. Being in love is a wonderful feeling and I can't imagine any true fan not wanting his/her idol to experience the joy of falling in love with someone. I don't want Hyunseung to be alone for the rest of his life. I want him to find his soulmate and to populate our dreary world with adorable doe-eyed little Hyunseungs and Hyunseung-ettes! Hopefully his legacy of mini-mes will inherit his super shiny hair, 4D personality, and mad dancing skills :D However, having said all that, there's not a single female idol out there that is good enough for my boy! lol. Sorry2say, but my Hyunseung is too good for the current crop of Kpop girl idols *___* This is probably how mothers feel when their sons bring home their girlfriends. None of them measure up or are worthy enough to hook up with their sons ^^

So, ever since the news broke, I've been looking at bestiz to see what the kb2uties are saying and there are quite a few upset fans on there. I was sort of whatever about it all until I saw one entry where the fans were not so much angry at the fact that Junhyung has a girlfriend, but they're super pissed off and worried at the negative effect it could have on the other boys. I'd never really considered that point. I figured that Junhyung and Hara would get all the flack, but the more I thought about it, the more it occurred to me that this Junhyung dating Hara thing could be detrimental to BEAST as a whole. I'm not worried about Doojoon, Gikwang, and Yoseob, but what about my boys Hyunseung and Dongwoon? The other members have a lot of visibility in the media, but Hyunseung and Dongwoon are still waiting in the wings D: They're both moderately popular among fans, but the Korean media hasn't given them the time of day yet! If Junhyung's stans abandon BEAST, then they won't just be hurting Junhyung, it will all come crashing down on HyunWoon because as cray cray as those fans are, they're the ones that buy the digital songs, purchase the physical albums, call the radio stations, email the tv shows, etc etc. BEAST has only been around for 2 years and have experienced phenomenal success, but it's only been TWO FREAKING YEARS since their debut!! Sure they won their triple crown, but that don't mean shit in Kpop. They can be here today but gone tomorrow if enough fans abandon ship. BEAST needs those fans to keep them relevant and in the public eye. There are so many current and upcoming boy groups. The market is saturated with idols. BEAST was at the pinnacle of their success and in my opinion, the last thing they needed was this "scandal" to happen. I can already tell that it's disrupting their Korean fanbase. I feel like there's quite a bit of hostility on those message boards...

When I think about all this, I can't help but feel a little pissed off at Junhyung. He's not some naive rookie. He knows all too well how the idol game works. If I remember correctly, when he was with XING (or maybe it was just after he left?), he had to shut down his Cyworld because his fans were upset that he had a girlfriend. He very well knows how it all works and how fans react. So knowing all this, how could he do such a piss poor job of hiding his relationship with Hara from the public? Did he think the other members wouldn't be affected when word got out? I remember this one time on a radio show the DJ asked Junhyung when he was last on a date and I think he answered that he hadn't been on one since he joined BEAST and started his training with them. It seems pretty obvious to me that he wasn't dating anyone at that time because he knew that girls were a distraction and that it was just stupid to alienate a lot of potential fans by having a girlfriend. I mean, why would fans follow a rookie group if it's members are already taken? The whole appeal of idols is that you can imagine and pretend that he/she are your boyfriend/girlfriend. It's not true or course, but fans buy into the fantasy that when an idol sings, he's singing just for them. That's why Rule #1 of being an idol is being single, or at least seeming to be single. It still boggles my mind that people were freaking out at the news that Seo Taiji was married O___o

Anyway, I don't care about Junhyung dating, but couldn't he have kept it under wraps until after BEAST completed their Japanese promotions at least?! It's been a while since I was into any Japanese fandoms, but even I know that for the most part, Japanese fans don't seem to take to their idols dating anyone period. Even Arashi have to be stealthy about their love lives and they're all approaching middle age! It's a different culture and a different market. I read one Japanese fan's thoughts on Junhyung and Hara and she was definitely not happy for them. She felt betrayed by Junhyung since he was her favorite member. In general, I thought the boys were doing a pretty good job of building up their Japanese fanbase. I doubt that this dating revelation will help them in that department... Plus, you just know that the Japanese media will be focused on Junhyung dating Hara in any future BEAST interviews. It's not fair to the other members that this story might overshadow their promotions. Fuck. The more I write about this, the angrier I get D:< I sort of want to rant about Junhyung being a fame whore too, but I'll save that for another day when I can be a bit more objective...

My parting words are if you're a true Junhyung fan, then you'll support him no matter what. If the news of him dating Hara has hurt you, then I hope that you don't direct your anger at the other members of BEAST. You can hate the guy, but don't hate on the group as a whole. I'll have to check their fan cafe numbers. I hope it doesn't take a hit ;___;

Hyunseung wants to get his FREAK ON WIT CHU~!

June 17th, 2011 (10:50 am)

There are certain songs that I just can't listen to. If I'm in the car and these songs come on the radio, I feel compelled to change the channel. One of these songs is Usher's "Nice & Slow." I just can't listen to it. I don't hate it, it's just that I get embarrassed listening to it because it's so overtly sexual. And if there are other people in the car with me? Fahgetaboutit. Nah. Ain't happening. Nice & Slow is just one of those songs that makes everyone feel uncomfortable en masse. Other songs that fall into this category are Sisqo's "Thong Song," Color Me Badd's "I Wanna Sex You Up," and The Divinyls' "I Touch Myself." Anyway, I wrote all of that to set up this clip of Hyunseung performing on Chin Chin Radio:

cr: a2737089 @ You Tube

Oh my God XD LOLOLOLOL. Hyunseung, you are too cute and too pure to be singing about "getting freaky" and wanting to put your hands in places you've never seen. Holy shit. HAHAHA. I've watched this several times now and I always crack up at that part in the song where he's "contemplating places where he can lay you down." Damn. And the rapping bit in the song!! I'm impressed that he actually went for it. The whole thing is just too damn cute. It's supposed to be sexy, but Hyunseung will always be adorable to me. Even when he had his "semi-manly" spiked up hair-do, he was still QT. I just want to carry him around in my pocket and feed him cupcakes and ice cream all day!

I doubt that he actually knows what the song is about... I don't know, maybe he does know O___O It's a mind fuck to even consider the idea that Hyunseung understands the lyrics behind Nice & Slow... In any event, he sang it with such earnestness! He's totally feeling that song, so I can't laugh at him...too much. lol. His vocals are good and although there was a lot of engrish, his pronunication wasn't bad at all (better than Junhyung's at least ^^). Speaking of Junseung, I might be imagining things, but the guy that goes "Whoa!" at the end sounded a lot like Junhyung XD

Hyunseung's Yozm Updates - SEUNG POSE FEVER + body waves and Junseung

May 23rd, 2011 (02:10 am)

Seriously, he is the cutest boy in the world! XD This must be how Justin Beiber fans feel. haha. I've always fangirled over Hyunseung, but lately I just want to look up info, save photos, and write sentimental LJ entries about all the reasons why I think he's awesome ♥ Years from now, I'll probably feel so much secondhand embarassment looking back at these entries XD

LOL. I LOVE this. Classic Hyunseung. Doing the Seungpose in the middle of the street in his Cassette Playa tee, Rick Owens swing pants, and Balenciaga high tops(?). Flawless.

Speaking of Hyunseung, I need to post this clip here for my own perusal later on. Hyunseung doing some really nice clean body rolls for the fans.

cr for the upload ^^: junnierawr


Hyunseung hugging a lucky fangirl. I love how the boys gave out full-on bear hugs! None of those awkward half-assed one armed hugs I've seen some idols dish out. Pretty hilarious how the fan was all timid, but that female coordinator shoved her towards the stairs and then when Hyunseung's hug lasted too long, she slapped him in the arm to let the fan go. hahaha.

cr for the upload ^^: ilovepinkatmosphere

Also, one of the best Junseung fancams I've seen in a while..

cr for the upload ^^: melon7

If Junhyung looked at me like that, I don't know what I would do *_____* Shipping aside, I like this vid because you can sort of tell that Junhyung is fond of Hyunseung and apparently digs his singing voice. If he weren't, he wouldn't be looking at him so intently. I feel like fangirling and flailing around at the thought that Junhyung loves Hyunseung's voice! All the boys love Yoseob's voice of course, but I don't think Hyunseung gets enough credit as a vocalist.

Personally, I like the tone and timbre of his voice. It's unique amd lately he's been impressing me with his range. Junhyung is probably looking at him that way because he wants to produce songs for him in the future. lol. Songwriting and producing seems to be rapper's forte, so I bet he's already composing songs in his head and figuring who he wants to sing which part. Hyunseung bb, when Junhyung's looking at you like that, all he sees are dollah signs $___$ You are gonna be a huge moneymaker for him later. haha :D

Man, BEAST has been so cute lately. I don't know what it is. I've been excited over their other comebacks, but this one is different somehow. Yoseob, Gikwang, Junhyung, Dongwoon, Doojoon, and of course Hyunseung are just so damn adorable ♥♥♥♥♥♥ The feeling I get from fangirling over this group is akin to the same warm fuzzy feeling I get when I'm holding a puppy or playing peek-a-boo with an infant. I don't know. It's just a really nice happy and hopeful feeling ^3^

Here's hoping for that Triple Crown!!

BEAST on Sukira and Jung Sunhee Radio Shows

Old news, but BEAST were on Sukira radio the other day and they were awesome as usual. They did three songs - Fiction, On Rainy Days, and Beautiful. I don't remeber them ever doing more than two songs on these radio shows, so I guess it means something that the Suju boys gave them more air time to sing :D The whole show is on the Tube, but I wanted to post this clip were Dongwoon forgot his lyrics to Beautiful. English, Korean, Japanese, French...I think the universal response to forgotten lyrics is "Na Na Na." ^___^

Oh man, and I feel the need to fangirl a little over Hyunseung!! He was super funny and 4D on the Jung Sunhee radio show. Everything he said had the other boys crying from laughter! From what I gather towards the end of the show, he was telling a story about how when he was a kid, he and some of his friends shaved their heads. The story had Yoseob, Kiki, and Doojoon literally jumping out of their seats from laughter and Dongwoon had tears in his eyes. Apparently, Junhyung had already heard the story before so he was pretty chill. Anyway, I love how physical their reactions are. It's not just laughing, it's explosive laughter!

cr: a2737089 & madamjikalo | Translation credit: b2utiesloveb2st

Even before Hyunseung told his story, he had the other boys loling. I think part of it was due to his new signature pose: the closed two-finger peace sign. Only Hyunseung would do the peace sign with his fingers closed like that and still look QT :D

Anyway, I really loved the atmosphere on the show. The boys looked very relaxed and happy. I was looking over the entries I made when Hyunseung was MIA and I felt kind of foolish about getting so worried. However, after hearing about LeeU leaving FCUZ, I think that it's sadly a very normal concern to have now if you're a fan. I feel like recently, members leaving, being replaced or dropped from bands is becoming more common place. Maybe it's just not possible for these newer boy bands to exist as long as a group like SMAP. I just bought a magazine that had them on the cover and was surprised to realize that SMAP has been together for over 20 years! Their contracts with Johnny's probably has a lot to do with it, but I like to imagine that they've stayed together for so long because in addition to being co-workers, they're actually good friends off stage.

I kind of love the fact that BEAST still sleeps in the same room in bunk beds. I will be so sad when the news breaks that they all live in separate rooms or dormotories now ;__; Being in such close quarters forces you to get over yourself and to work with the people around you. You have to supplant your ego for the good of the group if you want to be successful. There are a lot of egos in BEAST, but I still get the sense that they're the same goofy, down to earth guys that I fell for when they were on MTV B2ST. I hope they always stay this way ♥

BEAST Comeback on M!Countdown - OMG SO AMAZING!!!

May 19th, 2011 (04:52 am)

Holy Shit. So good *______* I love the choreography! It's not too much - it's just right and goes well with the overall mood of the song. And their vocals!!! I love that bit at the end when they're all singing together. From the start, I knew they all blended well vocally, and this is a clear example of that. I wonder if they ever have practice sessions where they sing together only to later say "Damn, we're so fucking good!" Do they ever impress themselves over how good they are as a unit???

Hyunseung! Your hair!! I LOVE IT. You look amazing!! Holy crap!!! And Dongwoon surprised the hell out of me. His voice - even the way he moves now seems so fluid *____* When BEAST first debuted, his moves were kind of jerky and his vocal control back then was nowhere as strong as it is now. The part where he's singing the refrain while Junhyung is rapping. OMG. He's the whole package. And speaking of packages, how tight were those pants?!?! Damn. Bulges everywhere. Doojoon's rock thighs :Q_____________________

The boys also performed "On Rainy Days" and they nailed that one too. I'm so proud to be a b2uty! I'm always flabbergasted when I read comments from people who are now just noticing how talented in every way BEAST is. Seriously, this is the best male idol group in the business. They're so pro these days. Damn. This is what you get from hours upon hours of practicing :D They better get that ALL KILL this time. The entire album is a cut above the rest and Fiction is such a well-constructed song. It's been on permanent repeat since Tuesday!


It just occurred to me that BEAST were at M!CD with U-KISS and Jay @_____@ Wow. What a head trip. I think this is the first time that Doojoon has met up with him on a show since they filmed Hot Blooded together... Talk about awkward. And I wonder if Kiki and AJ crossed paths backstage. lolol. Were Block B or B1A4 on the show too? It would be so cute to see Hyunseung interacting with the B1A4 boys ^____^ Now that BEAST are back promoting, I'm hoping for more cross-boy and girl band interaction!

Excited to see this comeback stage, espcially after that teaser pic that M!Countdown released showing their plans for the set. The boys will either be hanging from the ceiling or they'll be lifted up to the stage on columns or something. Don't really know, but hopefully it'll be fabulous!

One more HYUNSEUNG(!) post...this is B1A4 related ^^

April 21st, 2011 (09:13 am)

There are so many new boy groups coming out now O_____O How does one keep up with them all??? Anyway, I've been pretty faithful to my one boy band rule, but I can't help but notice a few of the newbies, particularly if they have/had a connection with BEAST.

Dalmatian is on my radar because they have Mr. Daniel and lately, I've been looking at Block B and the newest boys on the block, B1A4.

Block B is interesting to me because Jaehyo almost made it into BEAST *_____* You can actually see him in ep. 1 of MTV B2ST. He's in the scenes where Dongwoon is auditioning and asks for a piano. Sucks that Jaehyo injured his knee and had to be dropped from contention. I wonder if BEAST was originally supposed to be a 7-member group? Or if Jaehyo wound up being replaced with someone else... Personally, I think that Dongwoon probably filled his spot. I'm just remembering how Dongwoon wasn't able to perform with the other boys when they were supporting Gikwang as "AJ" when he had his showcase in Japan. They left Dongwoon behind because he needed more training, so maybe Jaehyo was in the running to take that 6th spot up until his injury? ;____; Anyway, I think this connection he has with BEAST is rather fascinating.

As for B1A4, I don't know anything about them other than the fact that the members in this group are adorable XD Unfortunately, being adorable just ain't enough to reel me in. I have to say though, that I'm taking an interest in them because of their connection to...HYUNSEUNG!

Just take a look at the "Thank You" section of their cd...

그리고 연습실에서 저희에게 열심히 하라고 격려해주신 비스트 장현승 선배님 감사합니다. 선배님처럼 항상 겸손하고 열심히 하는 저희가 되겠습니다.

The B1A4 boys are thanking HYUNSEUNG for cheering them on in the practice room! What I want to know is...what practice room? Isn't B1A4 under a different company? O___O Anyway, it's so sweet that they thanked him and seem to have so much respect for him! I wonder if he trains at other studios besides CUBE's and/or if he does freelance choreography for other groups???

Anyway, I've said this before and I'll probably be saying it forever, BEAST is the Kevin Bacon of KPOP. They're connected to everybody in the industry.
