#mcm: Evolution of the Bias Edition

Ironically enough, I've never taken part in man crush mondays, but now I have the perfect reason, and commmunity, to share this with! Has your bias changed since you've gotten deeper into the kpop universe? Do any of my biases match yours? Let me know ♡ (DISCLAIMER: I have a weakness for deep voices. And rappers. So, you will notice a pattern)
용준형 - BEAST When I first got into kpop, BEAST was the first idol group I discovered. "Shock" was the first song I heard, and there was no looking back. Junhyung will always be my first official bias. His voice, his personality, and his silly antics had me from the get-go.
방용국 - B.A.P. When I first discovered BYG, and his incredible song "I Remember" featuring one of my all time vocalists in Kpop (YYS), BAP hadn't even debuted yet. I will admit, and this will probably be an unpopular opinion, that I was brokenhearted when I found out that BYG was going to be in an idol group. I have nothing against idol groups, I actually really love them. It's just that BYG's deep voice and rap skills felt better suited as a solo artist. However, I do love BAP and I've come to terms with him not being a solo artist. So, they better be coming back soon - or my inner conflicts will have been for nothing.
서인국 - Superstar K Winner / Actor I thought I fell in love with Seo In Guk when I stumbled across his first album on iTunes. I especially thought I loved him when I saw that he featured Bekah Kim (former After School member) on that same album. When Answer Me 1997 came out, I became 99.9% sure I loved him. 100% was reached when I discovered he rapped as well. Never heard him rap? Watch, listen, and loveee ♡♡
호야 - Infinite BTD was the song that made me realize such a wonderful group named Infinite existed. Of course, it didn't take me long to notice Hoya's rapping and dancing skills. Really, I have a problem when it comes to rappers and dancers. I guess kpop and I really were destined. I was more than just a little thrilled to see Hoya in Answer Me 1997. Even though his part broke my heart, my appreciation for his unbelievable talent grew substantially. Have you caught him in Mask yet? If not, that drama should definitely be on your list!
수호 (김준면) - EXO Okay, so bear with me a bit here...Under no circumstances does Suho even come close to the specs that have been previously outlined in my bias list. Even I don't 100% understand how, or why, he came and completely became a bias list destroyer. Maybe it has something to do with the dance practice video for "Growl" where his aegyo is off the charts. Maybe it's because of his mature and responsible nature. Or maybe because he's the biggest dork ever. Who really knows. All I know is, after he came along there was no one else. Byebye deep voices and rappers~ Suho is 내 오빠 for life, yo. ♡
Oh, and DooJoon, cause he always tries to be a bias wrecker ♡

I've always felt my favorites were pretty random, I'm glad to meet someone with similar tastes! And, omooo, I wish I could marry 서인국 ㅋㅋ

Some Thoughts on Hoya's Departure
wow it has certainly been a week to remember. I've been fortunate enough to meet Hoya more and once and actually get a chance to talk with him one and one, and I dont think you need me to tell you this but he's an angel. (thats my red hair in the background behind hoya haha) Performing and creating music and choreography, as well as just entertainment in general, is what this boy was born to do. When you meet him you feel this immediate calm come over you and there is no idol-fan barrier. He's completely humble and seems almost as nervous/excited to meet people as they are to meet him. the pictures on this card are from their secret show in NYC where MTV gave me a staff badge and let me hang out backstage. Hoya was the only one who really came down and hung out with the people waiting there (like me, or the people from dramafever, or the people from mtv) and chatted with us. Sunggyu also lurked lol but he was clearly super shy - Hoya was like OKAY GUYS IM GOING TO GO SPEAK ENGLISH WITH THESE PEOPLE WATCH ME. I met him again at Dongwoo's family's restaurant where, again, it felt like seeing an old friend. I also got to talk to him at Simply Kpop where he randomly asked me where I was from (and I think this is because he saw a very small group of foreigners and wanted them to feel included since the show was all in Korean, so he switched to English for a short second. Even though it was only for a moment I know we all really appreciated it!) Below are two of my stories if you'd like to hear more: Basically, I just want to stress that Hoya is such a kind and loving soul. I'm sure the boys will not hold any resentment towards him for leaving, and I hope none of the fans do either. He's following his dream and fulfilling his promise to show us the best Hoya/Howon that he can! Good luck in the future Hoya, and stay strong INSPIRITS!
Reply 2015: Why Junhee was Gay
*BIG SPOILERS if you haven't seen Reply 1997 or Reply 1994!* ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Two high school boys are sitting near a basketball court on a summer night somewhere in Busan, South Korea, in 1997. “There’s someone else I like,” confesses Kang Junhee, turning to the boy next to him. “It’s you.” By this point, anyone watching Reply 1997 has fallen for Junhee’s charms, and is also aware that Junhee is not like the rest of the boys. He is not going to betray his friendship by falling in love with his best friend’s crush Shi Won. On the contrary, he’s going to fall in love with his best friend. Kang Junhee’s character is one of the most important characters of modern Korean dramas. In the midst of a changing cultural attitude towards homosexuality, his role shines an entirely new light on the image of gay men in Korea. I. Infinite Influence Hoya, of the idol group Infinite was a perfect choice for Kang Junhee. Hoya’s casting as Junhee was not only brilliant because of his surprisingly good acting skills (pardon my little faith in idols-turned-actors) but because of everything he brings with him to the role. To be honest, he was the reason I payed attention to this drama in the first place. Hoya has a strong fanbase and his group Infinite has endorsed everything from ice cream to chicken to school uniforms. With relatively few “cute” concepts, Infinite is one of the manlier boy bands in Korea, with Hoya fitting right in with his masculine image. Hoya has no damaging scandals tied to his name, and has risked everything for the life as an artist that he now lives. He followed his dreams of performing and has risen to a level of stardom that makes his parents proud. He is one of K-pop’s golden boys. Almost all of this fanbase will support his character without question, regardless of sexual orientation or personality. He has the incredible power of influence. If Hoya says something is acceptable, there is a large group of people that will undoubtably agree. This is the most important quality he brought with him to Reply 1997. II. The Perfection of Kang Junhee Hoya’s masculinity carries over to Junhee, an all around athlete who also happens to be fashionable, a great cook, and an even better dancer. The writers of this drama make him out to be the ideal man. Gay stereotypes in Korea are similar to the basic Western take on stereotypes. Gay men are portrayed as feminine and weak, often with higher pitched voices and limp wrists. How could Junhee, with all of his manly talents, possibly be a gay man? Junhee contains every character trait that an ideal Korean boy should have. He is intelligent and goes on to become a successful doctor. He is polite and charming to his elders. He is loyal, honest, and insightful, making him the best friend to have in tough situations. He is a good listener, puts others before himself, and gives fantastic advice. There is not a malicious bone in this boy’s body. His perfection seems too good to be true, and it is. He has one fatal flaw according to the Confucian society around him. He likes boys. While Junhee does seem more comfortable being in the kitchen and bonding with Shi Won’s mother over skin care advice, he is never made out to be an overly feminine or 'wussy' character. He is more mature than the other boys at school and seems to contain a wisdom far beyond his years. He is shown as the loyal and clear thinking friend. His sexuality isn’t the most important thing about him, it is overshadowed by his other fantastic characteristics. The script writers of Reply 1997 avoid falling into another stereotype for gay characters, which is over-sexualization. Junhee never tries to embrace Yunjae; he actually seems to avoid any physical contact. Their relationship is purely that of friends, although Yunjae hangs onto Junhee as if he is his personal plaything. Eventually, Junhee moves on, separating himself from his one-sided love. Junhee’s innocence makes him even more endearing to the audience. The only trait that someone could criticize Junhee for would be that he is far too nice, because we all know that the nice guy never wins in a Korean drama. Simply stated, Junhee does not have the qualities of a stereotypical gay man. This is why Bingrae, or Kim Dongjun, of Reply 1994 is so important. III. Bingrae: The Letdown? In Reply 1994, Baro plays the role of Kim Dongjun, who is known as Bingrae for most of the drama. Bingrae is a young boy from a farming family who has come to the big city to pursue a career as a doctor. He is enrolled in one of the best medical schools in the country, and has an instant group of friends in his boarding house. Even with all of these good things going for him, Bingrae stays in his room quietly reading anime or listening to cassettes. He doesn’t have a strong relationship with any of the people he lives with, and only seems comfortable around his cousin or food. He is nowhere near being an ideal man like Kang Junhee. Bingrae eventually drops out of school without telling anyone, and picks up part time jobs all over the city. This is where his storyline takes a turn, and throws him into the love octagon that is found in most Korean dramas. Sseuregi, or “Trash,” is the eldest boy in the boarding house. Although his personal hygiene is questionable at best, he is the perfect role model for Bingrae. Trash is on route to become a successful doctor and is completely comfortable with who he is. Bingrae, who already is uncomfortable and jumpy with others, can’t bring himself to treat Trash as a friend. He calls him sunbaenim, which is even more honorific than hyung. During these four years at the boarding house, Bingrae struggles to understand his feelings for the older boy. Trash decides to make Bingrae his dongsaeng, confiding in Bingrae that he has always wanted a little brother. Drinking games lead to a kiss between Trash and Bingrae, and Trash is constantly giving him special attention. Trash picks him up from work, buys him food, and pets him like a dog, even going so far as to call him Puppy throughout the drama. This unlikely couple had lots of fans, and many viewers were rooting for their success. With Bingrae’s uncertainty and shyness and Trash’s girlfriends, however, this pairing seemed doomed. Although they both struggled with understanding their love life, this mysterious and oftentimes withdrawn character is nothing like the confident Junhee of Reply 1997. IV. Why Bingrae Couldn’t Be Gay I have heard many fans of this drama complain about how Bingrae’s storyline ended in Reply 1994. An anonymous fan on Tumblr called it a great let down, and confessed that they never finished the drama because they were so upset. The reality is, if the writers had made Bingrae gay for the sake of having a gay character, they would have destroyed everything they had built with Junhee in Reply 1997. Bingrae is confused and unsure about every aspect of his life. He is unsure of what he wants to do in the future, of who his friends are, and especially of his own sexuality. He drops out of school, lies to his parents, and has no outstanding talents. Junhee is confident and comfortable with who he is. He has to hide his feelings from his friends and family, but he never questions them. He is hardworking, naturally talented, and undeniably charming. The ending that upset many fans of the Bingrae and Trash couple was very well thought out. In the episode that finally reveals Bingrae’s sexuality, the audience gets a sense of déjà vu. Bingrae steps out from the reunion party to meet a mysterious someone. As he waits at the curb for a car to pull up, the audience remembers the final episode of Reply 1997. After the reunion party as Junhee and the original gang of characters start to head home, Yunjae’s wife and Junhee’s childhood friend Shi Won offers him a ride home. Junhee smiles and declines, explaining that someone is coming for him. Junhee waits at the curb and gets into the flashy red sports car that comes to pick him up. The script writers kept the identity, and gender, of the driver completely ambiguous. There was never any confirmation of whether Junhee ends up with a man or woman. The audience finds itself blinded by headlights again in Reply 1994 as Bingrae stares down the street waiting for his special someone. Suddenly, the red sports car appears. The audience remembers where they have seen this scene before. As the sports car zooms past him, we are given an explanation of not only his sexuality, but of Junhee’s as well. V. The Key is in the Car Although Reply 1997 fans had to wait until the end of Reply 1994 for an answer, I loved the way the writers subtly tell the audience that Junhee was in fact, gay. The car that Junhee hops in at the end of Reply 1997 signifies his homosexuality, and it speeds by Bingrae as his wife pulls up in another car. The writers never had to say anything about Junhee’s relationships and that is what makes it so important. If Bingrae did not end up in a heterosexual relationship at the end of Reply 1994, the writers would not have been able to give this insight into Junhee’s life. With the sports car as a metaphor for homosexuality, the writers make being gay a completely normal way of life. The car passes Bingrae without causing a fuss and there is no dramatic music or lighting as Junhee gets in his sports car. Being gay is as natural as the cars passing you on the street and is not something that needs to be made into a big deal. That car, or that sexual orientation, simply was not for Bingrae, and saying this in such a natural, subtle way is incredibly important for the gay community. VI. Korean Attitude The gay community is still very much underground in Korea. In an Ipsos poll, 79% of South Korean participants said that they do not have a family member, friend, or coworker that is gay, bisexual, or transgender. Reply 1997 had an incredible following, with its last episode having the highest viewer rating ever for a drama produced by a cable network. The audience was mostly made up of men and women from their teens to their 40s, showing that the show had a wide range of viewers. The timing of these dramas was absolutely crucial. Just before the airing of Reply 1994, Korea experienced its first same-sex marriage. Legally, South Korea does not recognize marriage between same-sex couples, but that did not stop Kim Jo Gwang Su from marrying his long time partner Kim Seunghwan on May 15, 2013. The wedding was purely ceremonial, and their request to register for marriage was denied. The marriage opened up country-wide discussions about gay rights in Korea, and new legislation is being proposed by facets of the Korean government. The good news is, from 2007 to 2013, South Korea is the nation with the most significant change in opinion on the matter of gay rights. According to a poll through Pew Research, the belief that homosexuality should be accepted jumped 21% in six years. The same poll reports that 71% of South Koreans from 18 to 29 years of age support gay rights, showing a positive shift in society. With the open discussions and diverse viewership of dramas such as Reply 1997 and Reply 1994, I have faith that South Korea will continue in a positive direction towards equality for all sexual orientations. The work of the scriptwriters for these two dramas made their characters real, relatable, and relevant. It may be completely unconscious, but the Korean audience is being exposed to gay men not as forbidden lovers, but as friends, sons, and students. They are portrayed as human beings. Kang Junhee and Kim Bingrae are indispensable to Korea’s fight for gay rights.

Yoseob Responds To Hyunseung's Apology?
Three days ago Hyunseung from Beast posted a very long apology about his behavior towards the end of his time as a member of Beast: “During the past seven years, as part of BEAST before I left the group, I received a lot of love,” he wrote. “Since I was young, I thought that the people who sing and dance on TV were really cool, so I embraced my big dream and trained for five years. Through a good opportunity, I was able to debut as BEAST with my members. After debuting, it seemed like I’d realized my dream, but while promoting there were things I was uncomfortable with and a thirst for music that couldn’t be resolved. Rather than focusing on group promotions and building teamwork, I was stubborn about my own affairs. Even when I listened to what other people had to say, I’d immediately focus again on my own stubbornness and pride, so I made it hard for my members and the other people around me. The wall between me and the members built up slowly and instead of choosing harmony, I chose to grow distant.I slowly lost the ability to control myself and showed bad attitude in public, including on stage. I thought that immature image of myself was me enjoying my youth. I thought all that was me being cool. Now that I look back on it, I am deeply regretful. It was difficult for me to say that I was sorry because of my stubbornness and needless pride. But after leaving the group, I experienced a lot of things and went through a hard time. After laying down my pride, I could finally hit the floor that I was stubbornly holding out from, and from that floor I came to a realization and became free. I have only given scars to other people. I now understand how my carelessness and selfish decisions hurt other people so I really want to say I’m sorry to those people. I’m sorry.” translation via soompi! He posted a photo on Instagram along with this apology, and his photo is on the right. Yeoseob, his former group member, posted the photo on the left yesterday with no caption. It was deleted soon after it was posted. Notice how its the same location, just different times? Some people are saying its a coincidence and Yoseob was just catching the awesome looking cloud, but personally the fact that its SO similar (and the Han river is really big so the chances of him taking it at almost the exact same spot is pretty rare considering how long with bridge is) makes me think its intentional. Yoseob was the one who actually introduced Hyunseung to Cube so they have a very special connection (other than being group mates for so long and being friends regardless of career dream differences) So to me, I see this as an acceptance of Hyunseung's apology, and I hope the boys all feel a little more at peace.
~The Cutest Fanboy Encounter~
Hello Lights, B2UTYS and ALICE! For those of you who are unaware, the members of rookie group VICTION are HUGE fans of BEAST/Highlight. They cite the group as the reason they became singers and the group they are most collectively influenced by. Since debut, VICTION has talked about their love of BEAST/Highlight. They have performed BEAST dance covers during fan engagments, been caught singing BEAST and Highlight songs during V live broadcasts, and it is widely known amoung their fans how much they really look up to Doojoon, Hyunseung, Junhyung, Yoseob, Kikwang and Dongwoon. Their fans (known as ALICE) even give the members BEAST-related gifts (especially Heochan as he is the BIGGEST BEAST fanboy of the group). Last November, Doojoon posted in support of VICTION's debut on his personal Instagram. This reportedly was a moment beyond belief for the as-yet-to-debut members of VICTION. Flash forward to March 25th, 2017. VICTION was at the Show Music Core studios in the midst of their comeback promotions for "Eyez Eyez" on the same day that Highlight was performing their Show Music Core Debut Stage for "Plz Don't Be Sad". Shortly before VICTION took the stage, they had the opportunity to meet their idols and the VICTION staff had the piece of mind to film it for a live V app broadcast. What you are about to watch is so incredibly adorable. Can you believe they were more nervous to meet Highlight than they were to debut? Their hearts were racing, their legs weak and they argued over who would be the one in front. As I watched the lead up to their meeting with Highlight, I was nervous for them. You can see the maknae, Subin (baby faced kido with spikey hair) repeatedly hiding behind his members as they waited in the hallway. Seungwoo, their leader (Blonde in the black jacket and red/black plaid) was more than happy to bow out of the leader role for this meeting as the members ALL insisted Heochan (the one holding the Viction album) should be in the front, stating "Today, the spot is specially for you". Of course, our Highlight boys were so the wonderful, sweet and supportive guys us Lights and B2UTYS know them to be. Dongwoon performed magic tricks, Doojoon presented VICTION with a copy of their "Can You Feel It" album and Highlight even agreed to play a soccer game with VICTION should the opportunity present itself. Following this meeting, VICTION was asked about the interaction with their idols during an interview. Here's what they had to say: I seriously... like, my haertu guys! Can you imagine what it must have been like for the VICTION members waiting in that hallway? In April, Dongwoon posted a video message in support of VICTION to Twitter. Dongwoon was asked to name the "Junior group he is most looking forward to?" Dongwoon replied "VICTION" then stated: “I’m most interested these days in APink’s brother group, VICTON. We heard that they are fond of our group, so we’ve grown interested as well. I will cheer on their new album a lot. Please show lots of support for VICTON!” Does this just make your heart melt? I'm so glad that VICTION got to meet their idols and proud of how wonderful our Highlight members are. I hope that these two groups get the opportunity for more interaction in the future.
