Beast 30 Day Challenge Day 1
How I found Beast &
Why do I love Beast?
Let me count the ways ...
The very first video I watched of Beast was "Fiction". At the time I was into Taiwnese drama's in connection to "Meteor Garden" which is the Taiwanese version of "Boys Over Flowers". Like I said I had been searching for videos by F4 aka: JVKV (I love all four members of that group) ... Anyways, while conducting a search for more F4 videos, there listed among the "recommendations" was the video for "Fiction". My best friend and I (I must admit I was skeptical at first) looked at each other - we shrugged our shoulders and decided "What the heck" ... For some reason we felt compelled - so we clicked on it ... And we absolutely fell in love with the video and the group.
From that moment on we had to find out everything we could about the 6 members!
I am sure everyone who reads this will understand what I'm talking about. However, I am going to try my best to describe just exactly why I love Beast (just in case there are some who don't yet understand).
Now keep in mind - I do not live in Korea. However, with that being said, my best friend and I have always made it a practice, and we are very good, at digging up anything and everything regarding the character of whomever we believe is worth investing our time to get to know. This maybe a very strange approach, but there is method to our madness. The more we tried to find negative publicity about this group the more we realized - there really wasn't any. The worst thing we discovered was that they had been rejected by other entertainment companies. This is when our respect for this group began to soar - and this was one of the first things I began to love about them ...
1) They are NOT quitters.
2) I have watched as they turned every negative thing that was said about them into a positive AND turn their haters into Beast fans.
3) They have achieved sooo much yet, unlike some who have grown arrogant and haughty, they have remained humble .... That fact alone speaks volumes about their character.
Separately each member is sooooo talented and have proven they can do very well on their own as a solo act. But some how they instinctively knew that collectively they're such a force to be reckoned with. They are such a phenomenon!
I believe that starts with their leader - Yoon Du Jun.
Then there is Yong Jun Hyung ... I absolutely adore him. Watching him grow in his capacity as an artist - from his wrapping to writing music to full on composer/producer - has been awe inspiring! The debth of genres that he draws from to compose a song is so rich and textured - it just blows me away!! He never fails to impress me.
This is just one example of many that attempts to explain what I mean and why I love Jun Hyung!
Up next is Jang Hyun Seung ...
I love how he has come out of his shell. He always seemed to me like such an intervert (maybe he wasn't really) but he always came across to me like he was. My heart went out to him because I lost my father when I was seventeen.
Obviously a very wonderful dancer and singer. Then along came "Troblemaker" and ... Wow! He changed and became much more confident and a bit more rebel but in a very cool way.
Makes me wonder what - or rather who - might've helped him make this transformation. Nothing was ever spoken out loud - but ... Well - I can speculate, can't I?
What can I say about how much I love Lee Kikwang ...
In my opinion - he is the commensurate professional. I also think he is absolutely adorable and drop dead gorgeous. He is completely unselfish. I don't know very many artists who would have let go of a solo career to become part of a group. This is one of the things I love about him ... He had the wisdom, beyond his years, to realize becoming a Beast member would make him stronger than if he tried to stay a solo act - and boy was he right! Kiki maybe gullible at times but that's only because he has such a pure heart ... Which is another reason why I love him.
Now let's talk about why I love Yang Yoseob ...
I absolutely love how passionate he is about everything he does. No matter what it is - he wants to do his very best. From everything I have observed - he is sooo loyal! It's obvious they all consider each other as brothers but nobody messes with Seobie's family ... And that's what the other members of Beast are to him - they are his family.
He has such a beautiful voice but that is not all ... He is so funny! I love his sense of humor. Oh! And did I mention his voice? Lets face it - he can do any genre he wants - and I look forward to hearing it ...
Need I say more?
And last but not least - I want to show you why I love Son Dong Woon ...
Yes the he is the youngest - but my how he's grown up! I love everything about him ... He can be so silly one minute and then turn around and melt you with his sexiness the next ... and he totally gets away with it because he's the baby chronologically speaking. I know at one time he had a tendency to be a bit clumsy - but that was only when he was going through a growth spurt ... And yes his complete fear of bugs has been well documented, but that just adds to his charm. His sense of humor and his wit are well beyond his years, and his positive energy is just so contagious, it must be difficult to be in a bad mood for very long - which is just one of the many reasons why I love him.
Well these are just a few of the reasons why I am completely head-over-heels in love with Beast ... I hope you enjoyed this card ... Please tell me why you love Beast on this first day of the Beast 30 Day Challenge. Tomorrow I will share what my favorite Beast song is ... Oh dear, how am I ever going to be able to narrow the list down to just one song?!? Hopefully you will have an easier time making your song choice ... Until tomorrow ...
