Yea that's the one haha.
Here lately it seems a lot of K-Pop stars are breaking into the K-Drama/K-Movie scene and I am super impressed with a lot of their acting skills. I think one of the things that drew me to kpop/kdramas is that Koreans seem to take their craft very seriously and are incredibly concerned with their public image. I wish the same could be said for their American counterparts, but more often than not it seems the only reason they sell tickets (be it in movies or for stage performances) is because of some scandal or another.
Well, I'm off. 3 of the boys are already on their way to school, and I'm about to drop off the youngest one on my way to the grocery store. Then it's catching up on a couple of shows while doing laundry, and my house needs sweeping/mopping. With 2 dogs and 2 cats, it seems my wood floors grow fur overnight. Sigh.
*Fighting* <-- couldn't help myself =P
Hello^^ just discovered this thread.
Not sure if this was already said, but the Block B- Nillili Mambo and B.A.P.- One Shot MVs are awesome (more KHiphop than Kpop).
In terms of KRock CNBLUE is really good.
BigBang has no really genre i guess? Some popular songs are Haru Haru, Lies, Tonight, Love Song, Last Goodbye, Fantastic Baby, Cafe..
I guess somebody mentioned eatyourkimchi.com already?

Haru Haru (Although I actually prefer the acoustic version)
Top of the World
I like the "newer" Big Bang more so I like all the songs on the Alive/Still Alive albums.
GD&TOP also have a lot of good songs

<Anakso> I'd fuck yonghwa because he's so dreamy but that doesn't make me gay
In that order.
Although Block B and BAP could be refered to as K-hip hop I've definitely never seen CNBLUE called K-Rock before hehe.
But anyway if you like them, here's some you might like if you've not seen them before.
The MV for this is amazing, beats Nihili Mambo by miles and is probably better than One Shot too though I do love the MV for One Shot.
A massive and awesome collab starting with CN Blue, then FT Island solo then them both and then the others join
Though I think IU stole the show in that one as soon as she came out. (Just after 8:05)
While B.A.Ps earlier stuff was definitely in the k-hiphop category, I think some of their more recent work could fit into both.
This one comes to mind...
Love their stuff. Especially in my car. Very loudly. (To the dismay of my kids who think Mom has seriously lost it...)
Mmmhhh.. CNBlue. While JYH's acting has been called into question (I actually like him, even though a lot of people seem to think he only has one emotion. Stoneface..lol), I absolutely LOVED Heartstrings. I got to listen to him playing guitar. Which I'm teaching myself atm. Damn you Canon Rock and Funtwo (also known as Lim Jeoung Hyun). If you haven't heard it yet, it's amazing. Thanks to JerryC and his tab writing skills..lol.
Listened to the Big Bang songs, and I final verdict is: Their music doesn't fit my taste of music at all. :/ I didn't like any of the linked songs, but Beautiful Hangover had some potential at first!
*New as in I just began listening to it.
And yeah, B.A.P is living up their name for sure (Best Absolute Perfect). I really liked their earlier material but One Shot is in a new league, it's amazing. I just wish I could get to see Zelo do his floor-thing live
Edit: Yuri being cute
On a sidenote, I was looking for the Hong Gil Dong OST and had found it on ebay. Excited, I ordered it. (Stick with me here, this will be longer..lol). I did see that there was going to be a pair of socks included with it as a gift, but I didn't think much of it.
Around that time I was watching Secret Garden. The characters had once again switched bodies, so she was now in his and he was in hers. He absolutely hated a singer called Oska, so he was rather shocked and slightly ticked when upon switching bodies back, he looks down on his feet and he's wearing HER pair of
I remember thinking that I wanted a pair of those, cause I mean, how funny would it be to run around with someone's (cartoon) face on your feet. Now mind you, this is in the early days of my kpop/drama addiction, so I didn't realize that socks like those even existed.. or that they were a pretty big deal.
Several days later my package arrives. This is right around the time that I'm watching Panda and Hedgehog, which was airing at the time, meaning I had to wait for new episodes every week.
This is about to show you how brain dead one can be at my age.
I rip into the package, fire up the soundtrack. Grab the socks and go 'oooh and aaah and giggity'.. again, at the ridicule of my kids.
I promptly put on the socks and start stomping around the house with them. Hubby and kids are shaking their heads, I'm all giddy.
(Mine are the pair on the far right)
Now, here's my train of thought.. Hm. Donghae. I wonder who he is (not kidding..). So I go online and look him up. OOOOHHHH, he's in SUJU. Neat. Plop myself on the couch to watch the latest episode of Panda and Hedgehog, sporting my socks.
'Hm, the lead for this show is rather adorable (and looks somewhat familiar), wonder who he is..'
So I go online and look him up.
OOOOOOOOHHHH.. he's in SUJU..
Wait a second.
Glance at my feet.
Stare at the screen.
I don't think I've ever facepalmed so much in my entire life.

BB and BAP are also just kind of hiphop because of their "underground" background (yongguk, zico, kyung) i think?
Anyway I just love Zico's mixtapes and kind of everything he released.. Their Blockbuster album is one of the few things in KPop where i'm able to listen through the whole thing.
And thanks, saw these performances, they are fun.
