Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 65

Donghun proves time and time again how much of a skilled vocalist he is both in A.C.E and individually. Another facet of his vocal prowess is showcased in duets. His work with Sonnet is gorgeous (you will recall both Shallow and Little Do You Know). But, I particularly enjoy when he pairs up with one of his A.C.E brothers. So, how about another Vocal Magic moment? Oh yes . . . let’s check out the time our two elders (the ’93 liners) paired up to cover d.ear and NCT Jaehyun’s melodic ballad, Try Again.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 57

Competition shows are not my favorite subject to write about but seeing how the focal point of this countdown has participated in two, I would be remiss to ignore these important moments of Donghun’s artistic journey. I have already introduced Donghun’s pre-debut participation in Superstar K5 where he may not have taken home the winning trophy, but did become a trainee which of course led to his ultimate and inevitable debut. But what of competing after debut? What purpose could this serve and why be subjected to more intense scrutiny, evaluation and criticism, especially by YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyun Suk?😬 Well, I actually do understand; so I am adding another little sub-series within the countdown I am going to call In The Mix which will take us back to Donghun’s time on the JTBC survival reality show, Mix Nine.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 45

Going into the archives with this pre-debut DH moment. Remember how singing was Donghun’s first and foremost goal when embarking on a career in the music business. Dance was secondary but an idol’s gotta do what an idol’s gotta do. That includes some pre-debut legwork (100% pun intended) in the form of a back-up dancer. Yes….Donghun had a back-up dancer gig as part of the crew used in Korean solo singer Hi.Ni’s MV as well as live performances of her song, 클러치백 (Clutch Bag).

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 8

If you were just getting to know A.C.E and asked Choice who the main dancer or dancers are in A.C.E, odds are they would most likely say Wow and Byeongkwan. They are, after all, the group’s named main dancers. But if you asked me, I would say all five. Just because he does not carry the title main does not exclude the fact that Mr. Lee can cut a rug. It is easy for me to sing praises about Donghun’s vocal prowess. It’s a given that the man can sing. However, it is also a given that the man can dance. And when you put him side-by-side with one of the group’s mains, Donghun proves he is just as main as the main!
