Manwon^^, James and Katie pick their favorite 10 idols!!!!!
Well this was the most difficult list for me to narrow down to just 10 favorite idols. Chances are this list will not be the same tomorrow as it is today. Hahaha really this list should contain roughly 100-300 biases one for each group but…lets just stop at 10. 1-3 tend to stay pretty much there, but 4-10 who knows.
1. Xia Junsu (JYJ)
Xia Junsu has been my greatest love from the very first time I watched a TVXQ video (Triangle way back in 2006) until he was dethroned by L.Joe last year. AAAAND now my love for him has come back with a deep, unrelenting vengeance. I think his plan is to kill me for being un-loyal to him with L.Joe for too long. There are countless reasons why I love him. Junsu has one of the greatest voices in the world, he is an amazingly talented dancer, and one of the most handsome men on the planet.
2. Jin (MR.MR)
Jin has all of the qualities that I look for in a Bias: Attractive, Talented, and Quirky. He is one that just rocketed up (along with his group) from completely unknown last spring to number 3 by the end of Summer.
3. L.Joe (Teen Top)
L.Joe is the Rapper who somehow went from a casual and periodic love of mine to the top of my biases in the blink of an eye (Unless you ask Manwon^^). I can’t honestly say why I love him (Aside from how handsome he is, and cute, and adorable, and wonderful.), I just know that I adore him.
4. Hansol (Topp Dogg)
Another one with a massive leap. Hansol stole my heart from the day he was announced as a member of Topp Dogg. I have also been fortunate enough to have met the Topp Dogg members a few times at fan sign events. Hansol has such a great personality and is so sweet and adorable. Not to mention everytime I tell him how amazing he is he always has a great response, such as asking if he is a “sexy boy”.
5. I.M (Monsta X)
I.M is one of the great turds of my personal K-pop fandom. I have been in love with I.M from the moment he joined the No.Mercy trainees. I.M seriously owns my entire soul when it comes to Monsta X. So much so that, though I hate to admit it he may still be my bias even if my great love Minkyun had made it into the group. The moment I.M says “I.M what I am” I melt into a little fangirl puddle.
6. Jungkook (BTS)
Jungkook is probably the greatest turd that Kpop has ever seen. Forget the fact that he is the golden maknae, and yes I seem to like maknaes. I have tried and tried unsuccessfully to pretend that Jungkook does not deserve a space on this list (even though he should have been on this list last year) purely because I’m afraid to admit how much I love Jungkook. Jungkook has been the bane of my existence for going on 4 years now, as he is my original bias from the beginning of BTS. I have tried to both deny Jungkook my love and deny the fact that I am older than him than I care to admit.
8. Mad Clown
I am so in love with Mad Clown’s nerdy sexy style. Add to that he is insanely talented. And then he is a major video game geek, my gamer girl side is drooling.
8. E.Co (JJCC)
I’m not sure what it is about E.Co that put him into the top 10 but, anytime is see anything JJCC related, if E.Co is not there I’m sad. If he is there all of my focus goes straight to him, and I have no clue what any of the other members say.
9. TaeHee (M.Pire)
What is there not to love about a guy who names himself Taehee Prince? Add to that his ridiculous obsession with anything leopard print and Rilakuma and we have ourselves a winner. There is something very intriguing about this one.
10. Sungyeol (Infinite)
I have no clue how the F this has happened. I have tried to swear off the group as a whole but as I realized that people were going to be removed from this list and who would go up in their place, I was shocked to realized that Sungyeol was a contender and that once I thought about him I forgot about all the other people who I had thought would go up on this list. Curse you Manwon^^ for getting me into this group.
Well this is probably the worst instance of cheating that any of us do, cuz Minkyun doesn’t even count, as currently he’s not rumored to be in any upcoming group, but I had to do it. Minkyun was my original bias from the No.Mercy TV show, and if you have read my posting and opinions about the show you know that I near rage quit the whole group when he was eliminated, I still think about it and want to cry. Who knows how things would have played out had he never been eliminated. Someday he will debut and I will be his number 1 fan.
So, unlike James, who can fairly easily put an order to her biases (at least 1-3), I literally change my number 1 based on the last time I have seen a picture, heard a song, or watched an MV by a specific group/person. So the numbers here mean pretty much nothing ~ Well, let’s get started (I should also add here that I terrible and flat out ignoring this whole “10” thing…)
1. Jun.K (2PM)
This man has been in my bias list from the beginning – and he’s the only one to survive from years ago to now. I’ll say this now, because you’ll quickly see a pattern – I like grumpy, grandfather-y artists who think they are way more tough than they actually are. Jun.K is the perfect combination of talent, attractiveness, and grumpy oldman-ness ~
2. Yongguk (B.A.P)
Yongguk is my bais in B.A.P because I love the things he stands for, and how active he is with promoting and doing charity work – he impresses me all the time not just with his talent, but with his amazing heart of gold. He is just an outstanding man who makes me extremely proud to be a fan.
3. Feeldog (Bigstar)
Feeldog just waltzed into my life, and decided he was going to remain there permanently. He’s absolutely adorable, a really talented dancer, and a great rapper. Plus he’s amazing at art, and a great leader! You’ll also notice another trend in my bias list – I tend to love leaders.
4. Eunkwang (BTOB)
Another leader, chalk that up to three, and another man who acts like an old fart despite being young. Eunkwang is the perfect balance of weird, funny, talented, and “mature”. After having blow me a kiss, and getting a chance for a quick “hi” – Eunkwang definitely deserves a spot on this list.
5. Sunggyu (Infinite)
We’re now at four leaders, and four men who are too “mature” for their own good. Sunggyu just makes me happy – there’s just that something about him that kills me inside. He’s amazing, and he just wins me over every time I see him.
6. B.I / Yunhyeong (iKON)
Making me pick a favorite in iKON is like trying to drive a stake through my heart…it’s painful, and I won’t do it…so yeah….that’s a thing. I also don’t have anything to specifically add to why I love these dorks…
7. Moon (Royal Pirates)
Moon is amazing! Talented, funny, and simply put – fantastic! I honestly don’t have much to say because he is just so wonderful. And words won’t do it justice.
8. Suga (BTS)
Suga is just such a cutie pie, and he’s so lazy and slightly grumpy (he’s like half way to being a grandfather type – he’s not quite as old as Jun.K or Sunggyu yet ㅋㅋㅋ) He’s also a really talented rapper, and he’s learning to compose songs too ~ he’s like the baby version of Jun.K, just more adorable!
Kidoh was one of those members of a group that I was drawn to (even competing against 12 other guys for my attention), and I don’t really have an explanation to it. I mean, he’s a great artist who can do a bit of everything, and he’s really great at rapping, but there seems to be something else that just draws me to liking him.
10. Xero (Topp Dogg)
So apparently, B-Joo did not hold my heart as firmly as I thought he did. Xero won me over completely and fully after having the awesome chance to actually meet Topp Dogg. He was so sweet, and just seemed comfortable chatting with me…he quickly won my heart!
11. Wonho (Monsta X) & Young K (Day6)
So with new groups debuting come new untested biased. These biases haven’t been road tested with time yet, and since that is the case (and yes I realize that iKON also debuted this year…but my journey with iKON started with the TV program WIN) I am allowing myself a little cheating room here. These two biases have become strong contenders for replacing some other people on this list and while I don’t know if they will yet or not, they are definitely worthy of making a note on.
I think my taste is closer to Manwon’s as I also like members with the grumpy old man personality, but as you will see I tend to fall for the main vocalists.(and some cases for the maknae despite me being a noona-fan :D)
So here is my list (not really in a proper order because I also fequently change it based on the new promotions :D)
1. Jun.K (2PM)
My very first bias and still my # 1 (2PM brought my attention towards Korea back in 2011 with an anime ending song (“Take off”) but back than I only listed to their Japanese songs, and started to listen their Korean songs in 2013 when they came out with their 3rd album “Grown” and started to discover their older songs too….then other JYP artists……then other agencies……and here I am now :D)
2. Hongki (FT. Island)
I could listen to his voice all day long without ever getting bored of it. I’m simply in heaven everytime I hear him.
3. Leo (VIXX)
I really don’t know why he became my bias instead of Ravi or N, but I find something mysterious in his always so silent personality, probably that’s what attracts me 🙂
4. J-hope (BTS)
5. Hoya (Infinite)
I think I love Hoya ever since I first saw him in Dynamic Black (which featured 2 more of my favourite singers), than he charmed me with his acting in Reply 1997 but it wasn’t until this year’s Infinite and Infinite-H comebacks that he solidified his place among my biases.
6. C.NU (B1A4)
7. Minwoo (Boyfriend)
OMG I sweared myself many times that I won’t fall for another maknae but no matter how hard I tried I simply can’t resist him (especially his eyes)
8. Dongjun (ZE:A)
10. Jinwoon (2AM)
I don’t know how could I left the ‘King of Eye-Smile’ out of my list last year but I found myself still following his Instagram despite his departure from JYP. I can’t wait him to release a solo album hopefully in G Minor style because I need more K-rock artist 🙂
