Peniel's Story of Joining JYP Is Too Hilarious

Eric Nam has a podcast called the Daebak Show that has a lot to do with Kpop and Korean pop culture, and sometimes he has guests come on the show.
Recently he had Peniel from BTOB join and they talk about his JYP audition and it's, to put it mildly, HILARIOUS.
It's so refreshing to be able to hear idols talk in such a chill way. He's a human! He cusses! He has feelings! Thoughts! Incredible!
If only I had his courage to just go for it LOL

You can check out the Daebak Show here:

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!!!

Hello Melody! It's Melissa with a final BtoB line up. So here is my line up for BtoB, Mondays is Minhyuk, Tuesdays is Ilhoon, Thursdays is Peniel and Saturdays is Changsub. So sorry for keeping changing this around. So let's enjoy Peniel Thursday! Credit videos to owners https://youtu.be/BZda9yoFCdg That Girl Choreography Practice video. I love this song! I hope he puts out another single like this one. https://youtu.be/U-YO-dSpKZU Peniel live performance of Body Roll. I don't know why, but Peniel reminds me of Got7 Jackson.

Eric Nam Talks About Anxiety Attacks and His New EP
While his music might not always be my favorite, I truly love Eric Nam as a person. So glad to see him on the up and up. Here are two quotes from the interview: Having watched you on TV for several years, and knowing you were a singer, I wondered if you were happy – creatively – doing that. ‘No, I was not, I had a really hard time. The reason I got into TV was, obviously, for profile, but my previous company was in a bad spot and I felt I had to bring in money for them. But Korean isn’t easy for me and I didn’t pick it up very well, so to be on live TV constantly and not know what was going on, it was an anxiety attack every day. I would sit there thinking, ‘why am I putting myself through this? I just want to do music’. Since the Interview album, where I started doing more music with the TV [work], that kept me sane.’ If you could change one thing about the idol system, what would it be? ‘I want to say responsibility on the end of the companies, not that they’re doing a bad job, but as much as they are putting money into these kids, the kids are putting their entire lives and worth into your company. It happened to me too – like, they said, “well, we invested this much”, and I had to say “you got your money back, but I invested seven years where I’ve had a hard time.” So they have to think what can we do to make sure these kids aren’t just healthy physically, but emotionally and psychologically?. Then also, how can we equip them with the skills and mindset to move being beyond an idol should it not work out or when idol life is over.’ Read the full interview here:
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.
