The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 129

Part of idol culture is to periodically make appearances at award shows, movie or television drama premiers, press conferences and the occasional product or service launch party. So in addition to being able to see your bias on the stage or listen to him  (or her) via the magic of digital recording, seeing them out and about at various events gives a added boost of excitement, and usually some pictures and potentially some video footage.

TVXQ Tuesday: 믿어요 (Believe)

1_Triangle_w2

Tri-Angle was TVXQ’s first Korean studio album and Believe the first cut from that album. Believe is a gentle and tender love song. And…..Junsu opens it, and opens it so sweetly. The song was not released as a single, yet it still seems to be a fan fave when performed on various Korean music programs. It has, I dare say, the absolute perfect pauses to usher in those amazing fanchants. KIM JUN SU!!! ^^

TVXQ Tuesday: Try My Love

tvxq hot

As I slowly make my way through the vast discography of these five men, I notice one thing for sure. They were never bound by one certain genre of music. They have given us so many different versions of themselves and I so appreciate their openness to lacing various genres of music into their catalog. Admittedly, I love the ballads. But, having Junsu as my bias here and my amazing OTB (one true bias) G.O with MBLAQ, you have to know that I have a special weakness for soulful R&B. Try My Love is just that.

TVXQ Tuesday: Holding Back The Tears

Since I have been focusing specifically on their music for these posts, I did not realize that the men of TVXQ filmed and released a drama back in 2006 called Vacation. See, you learn something new every day. And as I am still making my way through ALL of their music as a 5-man group, I rely on discography lists to assist me.  This is how I found the gorgeous Holding Back The Tears.

TVXQ Tuesday: You Only Love

TVXQ Lovely

Ok, I admit that was a bit of a long hiatus from my TVXQ Tuesdays. I also admit to being derailed by MBLAQ’s comeback and G.O being cast in not one, but two musicals. And, well, going to Seoul and seeing G.O. I’ve been a little preoccupied, to say the least. But, I am returning now with a lovely ballad from TVXQ’s third Korean studio album, O-Jung.Ban.Hap.

TVXQ Tuesday: Ride On

Seoulbeats-e1367375267331

This one is so infectious and funky! I LOVE THESE GUYS!!! And they seriously break it down and dance the crap out of this one. Sorry….I am just a little excited. When I see Junsu grooving like this coupled with that spectacular voice I tend to get carried away. That little growl or whatever you want to call it that he emits around the 1:14 mark just sets the tone for me and prepares me (somewhat) for the hip thrust he throws at us around the 1:31 mark. Seriously Junsu we are just barely over a minute into the song and you do THAT to us?!

Oh but that Mirotic album yielded some good stuff, didn’t it? This light and airy pop song is so refreshing and lovely and the fab five are once again flawless with their sublime vocals.
