TVXQ TUESDAY – One

TVXQ BW

The way these young men can bring the steady and harmonized vocals in their more upbeat and dance-oriented songs is wonderful.  But, when it is ballad time, there is simply nothing sweeter.  Each voice unique, each one having its rightful place, each one stellar on its own yet when combined with the other, a synergistic feast.  So lovely.

In this offering I will have to honestly admit that Jaejoong and Changmin were working their vocal magic on me.  And, Changmin’s soulful glances while singing kind of stirred a mini spaz in me and he is not even my bias. But I am not going to deny that he’s looking right cute in this video!! From their third studio album “O” – Jung.Ban.Hap., released in 2006, this TVXQ Tuesday song for you is One (not to be confused with Rain’s One – you knew I’d sneak him in somehow)!

Anyone else crushing a little on Changmin after this one??

New Orleans or Burst….Cloud Burst, That Is

Bi NOLA Burst2

When Cloud USA announced that it was going to have its next meeting/fan gathering (aptly called a Cloud Burst) in New Orleans I thought to myself, hmmmmm, a group of Rain fans gathered together to celebrate Rain in a city known for its festive atmosphere pretty much every day of the year? That sounded like a complete win-win situation to me.  And, it was.

TVXQ Tuesday – Wrong Number

tvxq-tvxq-6813493-1024-666

So last week I was cracking out on Mirotic – which is easy to do.  I woke up again this morning with TVXQ on my mind and thought ok, I see a pattern here.  Seems TVXQ likes to invade my mind space on Tuesdays which is ok since it seems every other day of the week my mind space is duly occupied by Rain.  Tuesdays then will be my time to pause and show some love to TVXQ.  And by TVXQ I mean the group as a whole as they once were.  The five of them.  The five voices united in what is probably the best combo of voices I think K-pop has ever heard.

If you take some time to listen to these five work together you will notice a synergy that is so in place – and not just vocally.  They even seem to navigate the stage around each other while dancing with a telepathy all of its own.

Seriously, in that one I can’t even pick a favorite and you all know I am generally partial to Junsu!!! But in that performance, they are all working the hot factor pretty well!
