Uh, Mr.Mr is Back From the Dead?
It's been so long! For those of you who don't know who MR.MR is, they are a group that formed in 2012 and they haven't been active since 2015 (other than their many stints in Japan which is where most Korean idols go when they haven't found success in Korea) They were actually a bangin' group - one of my favs - until the Kitaek/Ryu fiasco. Basically, their maknae and best vocal of the group (imho) named Ryu left the group after 1. not being given any lines because the company played favorites and gave them to one member only, 2. he was abused by the ceo and allegedly 3. he had a girlfriend. Him leaving was the final nail in the coffin for this group because he SLAYED and I didnt think the boys handled it well at all (though im not really sure how one should handle this...) Then they tried adding Topp Dogg's Jiwon (before he was in ToppDogg obviously) then he randomly left. Then they added this other guy Hon but then he had some sex scandal or something attached to him from the past so then he was gone... It was just a really messy year for the fandom. But they're talented, so here's a taste: wait for the chorus of this song. the blonde is ryu and omgggg that voice! After Ryu (and Jiwon and Hon) left, they tried to have another single, added 2 new members, but tbh I couldnt get into it AT ALL. On the otherhand, Ryu/Kitaek's new group MVP is awesome and I'm so proud of him! ANYWAY I'm getting sidetracked. Basically, MR.MR members are set to participate in KBS new idol survival show called the Unit - in which 2 groups will be made at the end (one girl and one boy group) For my baes Doyeon, Jin, and Changjae, I hope this turns into a NUEST thing for them and they finally get their big break! Here's a look at how talented they are: The show starts in October!
