Seven O’ Clock x ONF Reunion

Current mood:

This week Seven O’ Clock came back with a new single, “Get Away”, and a new member.

Song Hangyeom also reunited with ONF! My Mix Nine fan heart is happy. 😄 I think A.C.E is in Spain right now so no trinity reunion as of yet.

Mix Nine First Anniversary Twitter Party

Current mood:

There is a 9-day Twitter party to celebrate Mix Nine’s first anniversary. I’m a huge Mix Nine fan so I’m definitely joining. This will be my celebratory post.

Yao MingMing (姚明明)

Current mood:

Yao MingMing (姚明明) is one of the 4 dancers in Mix Nine who are part of my ‘Mix Nine Dance Line’. It looks like he joined a new company, One Cool Jasco. He has been releasing a lot of dance videos recently.😊 Like I described in my Mix Nine First Anniversary Twitter Party post, his dance style looks like as if he is doing tai chi. It’s different. It’s smooth, calm and graceful. This is the same piece he used to audition for Mix Nine. I’m excited to see more of his work in the future.

‘Valkyrie’ and ‘All Night’

Current mood:

Competition is fierce in the K-pop boy group world. There are just so many of them. They are all good-looking and talented. Not that I’m complaining. Variety is good for fans. I can imagine the pressure these boys must be feeling though. I wonder how U feels. Does he feel burdened about the competition too?

ONEUS is a newly debuted group from RBW. I know of them because two of the members participated in Mix Nine. I didn’t recognize Gunmin (Seoho) immediately because he dyed his hair and has a different image. I’m buying the fallen angel concept. They are off to a good start.

I’m digging Astro’s comeback MV for All Night. ‘Pretty’ is the best way to describe it. The boys all look like princes. 👑 The set and costumes are visually stunning. It’s like Beauty and The Beast meets Alice in Wonderland. The melody and the lyrics are pretty too.🌹

Year of the Visual Rookies?

Current mood:

2019 is the year of the rookies. There are many visual rookie groups debuting this year. With how the results of YG Treasure Box is turning out, YG seems to be forming a young, visual group that could face off with the likes of Big Hit’s TXT. I’m not a fan of what he is doing. I will probably not support this new group at all unless Hyunsuk or Byounggon miraculously joins the line up. However, a part of me doesn’t want those two to separate. I’d rather have YG debut another group with a more hip hop vibe — similar to how Winner is different from iKON. No more survival shows for YG please. It’s toxic. I think he has sadistic tendencies. I have given up hope on the Treasure Box line-up so I unfollowed the YGTB account on V-Live. I hope there will be news about J-Line debuting soon to appease angry, frustrated ex-YGTB fans like me. YG has a knack for making fans feel bad, which might just backfire on his agency sooner than later.

In stark contrast, JYP is making Mix Nine fans happy introducing his new ‘girl crush’ girl group, ITZY, with Shin Ryujin in it! I’m not a fan of girl groups in general but I’ll be sure to check out their debut single just in case they can pleasantly surprise me. I don’t see anyone as charismatic as the 2ne1 members were though. They have to be at that level at least to make me stan.

This also means older groups will start to slowly fade away in the background.
