~Moderator Intro~ BTOB Community

Hello Melodies!

It's @Helixx here. As some of you may know, I'm the Mod for the BTOB Community. I wanted to introduce myself before getting too caught up in all the BTOB fun we have planned.

I hate my real name so I prefer Helixx, which is what most of you know me by anyway. I live in Los Angeles, California, but I'm from the great state of Michigan. I work in the veterinary field and I'm also a tour guide on a very big, famous ship.

I'm a proud crazy cat lady. I'm allergic to A LOT of things and I have asthma so that keeps life interesting. I'm a vocalist and recently had the awesome experience of training at Kpop Academy. My favorite color is green... literally any shade of green will do, but I especially love bright greens. My favorite animals are ducks which I plan to have one day and raccoons. I used to be a wildlife rehabilitator and I fell in love with raccoons when I had to raise them. They are seriously super cool animals.

I'm planning to move to Korea next year and I've been learning Korean in preparation. This is going to be the biggest adventure of my life. I'm both nervous and excited.

I only discovered BTOB this year, but they came into my life with a BANG! I was hooked from the first song and I fell in love, hard. These guys are so incredibly talented and their super goofy too. I couldn't help falling for their personalities as well as their voices. In a very short span of time, they sung their way into my top spot, replacing BIGBANG as my bias group. I know, believe me, I was shocked too.

If I'm being completely honest, I bias the entire group.... picking a BTOB bias is hard because they are all so lovable and gorgeous. In the end I fell for Ilhoon. I mean, look at him! ...but then there's Eunkwang who keeps trying to steal my heart away. Like right here... do you see him, peaking out from behind Ilhoonie?

Since the adorkable Ilhoon is my bias I will be representing him for the community. Hopefully all you Ilhoon stans will enjoy all the awesome things I plan to share with you.

I'm multifandom and my top groups are:

BTOB
BIGBANG
BTS
VIXX
B.A.P
MADTOWN

In addition to Moderating the BTOB Community, I am also a support mod for the BIGBANG, B.A.P and VIXX Communities. If you see me floating around these communities, stop and say hi!

Ok folks, it's your turn to introduce yourselves!

Make a card telling the community who you are.

Don't forget to tag the Melody Mod Squad so we can get to know you.

@Helixx I agree with you 1 billion percent.
@JessWang90 He's always trying to steal me away. He's so beautiful and that voice. He could sing me the phone book in his broken English while suffering from bronchitis and it would still sound like doves flying from his mouth towards the heavens, flanked by rainbows sprinkled in stardust and angels playing harps. @MandyNoona I like goodies...
I'm excited to learn! Time to stan another group hard-core.
@sarahdarwish YAY! I'm happy you're excited and I'm very much looking forward to sharing my love and knowledge with you.
CONGRATSSS! 💞 I can't wait for this quarter since I only really know Sungjae from BTOB. This is exciting 😆

Get a Boy Group That Can Do Both
I dig a group who can commit to concepts, and I LOVE groups that can do a ton of different kinds. Originally this was going to be boy AND girl groups but I had too many boy groups so the girls will come next! Here are a few of my favorite groups that can hit both ends of the spectrum: BAP! One Shot vs Stop It The first is intense, hard core, and really dark. Even without the music video, this is just such an in-your-face dramatic song. Second is Stop It, one of their bouncier and happy-go-lucky songs. BAP is really, really good at doing both and I can't pick which type of song of theirs that I like. VIXX Voodoo vs GR8U Vixx are soooort of the concept kings and I love them for it. First up is their song and MV 'voodoo doll' which is sooo dark and creepy and dramatic. The music video is honestly a little gorey too and they legit act like they've lost their minds. In GR8U its just a super bright fun song with perrrrfect choreo!!! GOT7 Just Right vs If You Do GOT7's personalities are larger than life so its pretty obvious that they're going to be good at drama and fluff ;) In my opinion, they can slay both types of concepts! BTOB Thriller vs Second Confession BTOB is another group that can successfully pull off the dark and light concepts. I think Thriller and Second Confession are the best contrasts (plus I just really love Second Confession) Boyfriend Janus vs Boyfriend I know its not fair to judge a group by their debut track, but I genuinely love the song Boyfriend and this is my card so LOL! Boyfriend has changed their style a lot but I really like both their light and dark concepts. Janus is my favorite of the ~darker~ side. Infinite Man in Love vs Back I remember when Man in Love came out and I nearly combusted. I love how intense Infinite is but I lovelovelove the tracks on their albums that are super poppy and sweet too. For them to make one of them a single!? I was ded. It reminded me of baby Infinite's Nothings Over or She's Back. But really, intense Infinite is what we're all here for lol. TVXQ Balloons vs O omg this comparison is too hilarious! i could have used hug to show their sweet side but i will never miss an opportunity to share the balloons music video ;) There are many more but this card is getting too long! Leave your favorites in the comments! (dont get me started on BEAST)

The Story Behind BTOB's KBS Red Carpet Pose
Hello Melodies! As you may know, BTOB is known for their funny and outrageous red carpet poses. Each year they pick unconventional poses for some of their special event appearances. They normally save these for award shows and special festivals. In the past they've given us the cheerleader pyramid, mid-air jump, Michelangelo's "The Creation of Adam", flower and heart poses, to name a few of the more memorable ones. Last night at the KBS Gayo, the boys did not disappoint and executed a masterpiece. This is kind of amazing! So how did they come up with this bizarre idea? A Melody sent this picture to BTOB via Twitter. IS THIS NOT THE COOLEST THING EVER? This is a perfect example of how close BTOB and Melody truly are. "BTOB and Melody- both of us can't exist without the other, we coexist; gift to each other, fan and artist- special kind of relationship." -Peniel's lyrics from "예지앞사" IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE ADDED TO THE BTOB COMMUNITY TAGLIST, PLEASE LET ME KNOW >>>HERE<<< MELODY MOD SQUAD: @LemonLassie @AimeeH @StephanieDuong @IsoldaPazo @MandyNoona @Bangtanss @MelissaGarza @Helixx VIXXEN MOD SQUAD: @JiyongLeo @kelseyblair @MandyNoona @AimeeH @Helixx @StefaniTre @LemonLassie BIGBANG MOD SQUAD: @KwonOfAKind @lovetop @catchyacrayon @BBxGD @Helixx @WendyNegrete @phxcur93 CHOCO CONE CREW: Jiji- @JiyongLeo Helixx- @Helixx Mandy- @MandyNoona Stef- @StefaniTre Stephanie- @StephanieDuong Sol- @IsoldaPazo Lemon- @LemonLassie Vinny- @twistedPuppy Aime- @AimeeH Stephany- @Stephany123 Michelle- @Bangtanss emily- @ercurrent SAVAGE THUNDER MAFIA: @ashleyemmert @ElleHolley @NasiaWright @Isolate @EliseB @sarabear1021 @Lexxcisco @JessWang90 @Nadinerrz @jaiipanda @DianaBell @twistedPuppy @ScarletMermaid @narutobandgeek @KaiLuhan4ever @Helixx @Isabellaelliott @KhrystinaLee @ChubbyDumpling BTOB COMMUNITY TAGLIST: @XergaB20 @ElenaP16 @MelissaGarza @GriseldaZenger@YessicaCardenas @DominiqueWhitak @Ercurrent @KwonOfAKind @sarahdarwish @LocoForJiyong @unnieARMkeY @amberg171997 @firstladyofaomg @merryjayne13 @MarrickeJ33 @karinamiranda81 @StephanieDuong @punkpandabear @xoxorittie @JustinaNguyen @AaliyahNewbell @ChristineO84 @ibMIMI @Mikim000 @Starbell808 @AlyssaGelet818 @Astrohelix @dallasyamane @petname83 @VeronicaArtino @YviLole15 @JaxomB @CrystalGuerra @toitlepark @lhiranthom13 @JamiMilsap @Elistacy87 @Beckah1327 @KellyOConnor@JessWang90 @axosrain @MahelySandoval @Vay754 @elainarenea @AdiaJasinski @QueenLele @HayleyEastman @Dianaedith @BrennaHarding @firstladyofaomg @EvilGenius @KatieShiminski @kpoplifeu @Lexxcisco @AngelaDarkness @JiyongLeo @twistedlove @SassyMaknae @BiasKpop @swarrier16 @GamingAirbender @MonAnnahiX @ibMIMI @nunikal7 @KenyaMendoza @KokoroNoTakara
Today I Am Feeling Stressed..
Hi Fam, Today I am feeling stressed... I'm normally pretty good at juggling all the chaos in my life. Today, however, not so much. Between pressure from two of my four jobs who both say I need to be at mandatory training at the same time TOMORROW, to people who are dear to me dealing with some nasty hate comments and bullying, to family obligations, paying bills and cleaning my apartment; my emotions are high, my patience thin and I'm feeling a little burned out. Basically, adulting is getting to me today. It's not just me though. I know many of you are in the same boat. You have your own stresses and obstacles to deal with. I'm sure we can all use a good laugh right about now. So to get us all on back on track, let me remind you that Big Byung understands. So today, I say NO! I will not allow this stress to get to me, tear me down or defeat me. And neither should you! I LOVE YOU VINGLE FAMILY! FIGHTING!!!

Idols With A Cause
Hello Vingle Fam- In July of 2013, BEAST appeared on an episode of Happy Together and something rather amazing happened. I'm not talking about the members showing off their abs (though that was nice), I'm talking about this: The group's main vocalist, Yang Yoseob wore this purple bracelet, a gift from one of his fans, during the show's filming. After the broadcast, the website that sells these silicone bracelets actually crashed due the sudden influx in orders. So what's the big deal about these little bracelets? They are called Blooming Bracelets and they bring awareness to the plight of Comfort Women. "Comfort women were women and girls forced into prostitution to serve Japanese soldiers during World War II. Young women were abducted from their homes, or lured with promises of work in factories or restaurants. Once recruited, the women were incarcerated in “comfort stations” in foreign lands, deprived of their basic rights. Treated as little more than animals, they were forced to face several dozen men a day." All proceeds from the sale of the bracelets "go directly to the “Daegu Citizen Forum for Halmuni” to improve the well-being of comfort women." Of the documented Comfort Women, only 56 are still alive today, their average age is 90 years old. Weekly protests have been held in support of the Comfort Women outside of the Japanese embassy in Seoul for the past 21 years, despite which the Japanese Government has yet to issue a formal apology. Yoseob, who has been seen wearing the bracelet on many occasions since the broadcast, has been called "gaenyeomdol (an idol with social consciousness)" for using his celebrity status to bring awareness to this worthy cause. In addition, the chairperson of the Committee for the Prevention of Historical Distortion in Northeast Asia personally thanked the vocalist. His public support of woman's causes has not only labeled the singer as an idol who cares, but it has sparked a trend of social consciousness within the idol industry. In the years since Yoseob's appearance on Happy Family, many idols have also come out in support of the Comfort Woman's cause by wearing Blooming Bracelets. VIXX's Leo and BTOB's Minhyuk. SHINee's Taemin, Onew and Jonghyun. GOT7's JB and Jinyoung. Even rookie Taeyong of NCT fame has been spotted wearing the bracelets. The Blooming Project was started by a group of students at Korea University who wished to bring about awareness to the often overlooked issue of Comfort Woman. They established a brand called Heeum and created a website. They were inspired by the Livestrong bracelets sported by Lance Armstrong and set about creating an inexpensive bracelet that could help raise money for the cause. Since Yoseob and other idols started sporting the bracelets, the company has been able to expand to include Blooming bags and other goods and even hold events to educate the public on the issue. As multiple members of the project have noted, despite the plight of Comfort Women being an integral part of South Korea's history, many high school students and even adults were not aware of the issue prior to the public's knowledge of the Blooming Project. The bracelets sell for 2000 won ($1.68 USD) and can be purchased through the group's website, HERE.
