That's right...A NEW KISS ME IS BORN!~
I honestly never thought I would ever get into U-Kiss, but after watching an interview they did with Eat Your Kimchi's Simon and Martina, I must say, Kevin and AJ really reeled me into the fandom!~ Of course, the other members were there, however, since all but three did not really speak, I didn't really pay much attention to their faces ^^; I didn't pay much attention to Eli either since he pretty much said about four words lol.
Anyway!~ After watching both new and old videos, I must say, U-Kiss is amazing~ Ahahah! For the past week or so, I've been spending every waking hour doing something U-Kiss related!~
It seems like I always get into a group shortly after they have a member's change too ): Why is that?
Well, to touch up on the subject...I honestly really like all the members, both former and current. However, I do feel like I will never truly feel that fondess and everlasting love that original Kiss Me's feel for Alexander and Kibum. I've watched plenty of shows with them, and they're really funny and cool guys, but I don't know. I didn't feel a very big attachment towards them. They're still really amazing and funny guys though!~ They made me laugh a lot during U-Kiss' Vampire....Ahhh Kibum "Hey red shirt you were wrong again KEKEKEKEKE" lol
Also, I know it's hard when members leave groups and especially when new ones come in to fill that void...but I honestly hate how people are refusing to accept the new members, Hoon and AJ. I mean, if the other U-Kiss members were able to accept them, why can't you? I mean, the members have a stronger connection with each other than they do with the fans. So it probably hurt them the most when Alexander and Kibum left...so why is that they can get along with the new members, while the fans can't? I really like Hoon and AJ, and think they're amazing~ Lol so maybe I'm just a little butthurt, but still...I think it's ridiculous to have such a closed mind about it...Give them a chance?
I cried a lot when DBSK...disbanded...so I would expect Kiss Me's to be very sad and depressed about the news. However, I'm over here REALLY contemplating how I would feel if SM or C-Jes decided to add new members in order to make the groups five members again...Though I would be annoyed and I'd be hurt, I'd do my absolute best to support and love them. I know it's not as bad, but I remember when Yunho and Changmin performed Balloons with SHINee...I was upset at first, but I dealt with it. I don't hate SHINee for it...in fact, I ended up laughing at which member sang which part. Going "OH YEAH! MINHO GOT YOOCHUN'S PART!~ They both have deep voices ahahaha."
Continuing on with the whole member change...(is this turning into more of a rant? D:)
I agree that the change was unexpected and heartbreaking, especially when it seemed like U-Kiss was about to get somewhere in their careers. I mean, they were planning to go to debut in America! And to suddenly announce that two members will no longer be in the group...I wouldn't even know what to say about that. However, I don't like it when people go on about how NHM is evil, and when fans ask "If they weren't good enough, why hire them in the first place?" Well here's the thing...this is the Entertainment BUSINESS. Business is business. That's all I can tell you. A group is an INVESTMENT to it's producers. They pick members that show POTENTIAL in being successful artists. HOWEVER, if they do not perform as expected...of course the producer may have second thoughts and drop them. It's just that. It's not a hard concept, so I don't understand why people are saying it was unfair, uncalled for, and etc. I mean, it is...in a fans mind and heart...but in a business perspective...it really wasn't. By the way, I'm not saying I feel like Kibum and Alexander didn't perform well or as expected...I'm only giving an example and a possible reason as to why....
I seem really harsh...but I'm a REALISTIC FAN. No matter how much I love a group, I'm going to be realistic. I try not to be overally biased because I HATE it when people are like that. *Cough the reason why I don't like the VIPs from iBigbang cough*
Even when it comes to DBSK, as much as I love them...and as much as I DREAM, HOPE, AND PRAY that they get back together...in my mind...I kinda know that the chances of that is close to 0 now...I mean, the gap between the two are getting farther and farther apart...emotionally and career wise I guess...So I really don't know how both groups can mend all their hurt feelings and wounds and get back together as a group like nothing even happened...If they do get back together...would they still be as close? Would all five members actually be ONE again? ...It's a sad thought for a Cassie...but again, I'm realistic. I still go by "Always Keep the Faith" but I think that phrase differs in everyone. For me, it means to support the boys in whatever directly they choose and to love them no matter where they choose to take their careers. AND WHEN DID THIS JOURNAL BECOME ABOUT DBSK!? kk lol Let's get back to U-Kiss
Ummm...well on to the new members then? AJ and Hoon.
Well, at first, I didn't really care much for Hoon.. He was just another guy. However, after watching more videos, I really warmed up to him. ^^ He's really adorable...with unexpectly hard abs...Like seriously, I've never seen such toned abs before o-o They're ridiculous! It doesn't really match his quiet guy look, but I don't mind!~ Ahahaha By the way, I DO NOT THINK HE LOOKS LIKE YOOCHUN! lol (Extremely Yoochun biased lol)...but I guess Hoon resembles him...at times...but rarely!
AJ, AJ, AJ...This boy...I can't even describe him lol I enjoy his presence in the group a lot...however, at times, he really makes me cringe. Like, "Ahhh...why would you do that!? That's why some fans don't like you ;A;" lol However, I still really like him!~ There's just something about him that catches my attention ^^ Well...I think his face reeled me in, but then his personality sealed the deal XD lol
I think I'm done? Lol...ENJOY THIS VIDEO NOW...
