Ji Jinseok (지진석)

Current mood:

Remember everyone’s top pick in Under Nineteen‘s vocal team who had a hard time dancing and had to drop out of the competition at one point because of health reasons? He debuted as a solo artist.

Ji Jinseok has a really beautiful voice. I’m not fond of ballads but this works for me because of the slight jazz vibe.

Lee Seunghwan Focus Fancam in Idol Radio

Current mood:

I watched several of his performance videos and this predebut video stood out to me because of how much he seemed to enjoy dancing to this song.

Here’s 1THE9 dance cover medley of Under Nineteen performances. They dance with such enthusiasm and great energy. Their dancing exudes youth and passion. It’s refreshing.

1THE9 Dance Line

Current mood:

Say hello to my 1THE9 Dance Line! This is my new Twitter and Youtube banner. They were all part of the Performance team in Under Nineteen. As expected, I like dancers. I can’t pick a bias yet. They have different charms. Seunghwan’s dancing and voice are so manly. Doyum’s dancing is strong yet pretty. Junseo’s visual is cute and he dances with a Yao Mingming aura.

1THE9 is now my second favorite K-POP group after ONF.

1THE9 Debut 💓

Current mood:

1THE9, the unit that came out of the Korean idol survival show Under Nineteen, released several MVs to promote their debut album. They made my heart flutter.💓 I might actually find a new bias soon. If all of their songs will be at this caliber, I’m going to stan this group. I like the feel and sound of The Story.

Spotlight

Domino

This suit version of Spotlight made me see how well-rounded this unit is. I think it’s an advantage of groups formed through survival shows. All elements are accounted for: vocals, performance, rap and visuals. I like how well rap is incorporated in this group. It is not treated as an accessory or add-on but as a core element.

I have to watch all individual teasers and related videos before deciding on a bias. As it is, there are three guys who catch my eye.

Junseo

Somebody and Under Nineteen Finale

Current mood:

I watched the final episode of Somebody and Under Nineteen over the weekend. Both were a little underwhelming to be honest. Song Byeong Hee didn’t make it. I thought he was the most talented of them all. In Somebody, Eujin’s final solo was the only one that sort of appealed to me. I didn’t like his song choice though. Also, I don’t know if it’s just biased editing or the venue assigned to him was too small but Daehan was shown to be doing the same steps over and over. Meanwhile, Sunchun was given two large venues so I thought it was a bit unfair.
