Kpop. I never really knew about Kpop. I hadn’t really heard of it nor had I listened to it before. I’m kind of kicking myself for not having discovered the world of Kpop a while ago but that’s another story. But apparently, I stumbled into the world of Kpop in a damn good way. Or so I have been told by my new Korean friend. One word Bangtan Sonyeondan also knows as BTS. I am a person who is rarely speechless but BTS made me speechless in a good way of course. But let me tell you I WASN’T READY! I had never heard any of their songs or watched any of their music videos before. So I went in search of one of their videos and lucky enough for me the Blood Sweat & Tears music video had just come out on Oct 9, 2016. I WASN’T READY. The song. their voices, the VISUALS were just wow. I had to watch it twice because the first time my brain just could not comprehend what I had just watched. I kid you not I was sitting there in a daze. After some intense research I began to figure out just who BTS was and what they stand for Jungkook? Man, I was JungSHOOK. A whole new world had just been revealed to me and I could not wait to explore it. Kim Namjoon, Kim Seokjin, Min Yoongi, Jung Hoseok, Park Jimin, Kim Taehyung, Jeon Jungkook, BTS! Before I could get into the fandom there were a few things I needed to understand like for example what bias meant as well as bias wrecker. A bias. “In Kpop, the member of an idol group that is your favorite. A person may have one ultimate bias, and many other biases from other idol groups, or only have one ultimate bias.” by Urban Dictionary. A bias wrecker is someone in a Kpop group who has caught your attention and will many times make you question your life and your current bias list. Within the first 6 minutes of getting to know BTS I was bias wrecked at least 10 times. Hence why I don’t have just one bias. I love them all though. But I do indeed have biases which I sometimes feel bad about because I feel like I’m leaving the other members out but I love them too. Having a few biases isn’t wrong right? Well, hopefully not because I could never choose between them all. They would just bias wreck me more sigh. Damn it Jhope shot that arrow right into my heart. Because I officially love BTS and Blood Sweat & Tears. That song will forever hold a special place in my heart because it introduced me to an amazing Kpop group. One thing I really love about BTS and Kpop, in general, is that they always put their blood, sweat, and tears into everything they do. They DANCE and SING/RAP at the same time! Okay, now you might be sitting there going why does she find this so impressive? It’s because when I say dancing I mean like DANCING, not like just your ordinary everyday run of the mill type of dancing.
The fact that they dance like this and sing and manage to not sound extremely breathless and tired is amazing to me. I know if I did that you would definitely hear it in my voice but with BTS it’s nothing but perfection every time. But that’s not all. Every BTS MV (music video) that I have watched has been outstanding. Whether it’s the choreography, the dancing, the visuals, or the fashion. Everything is visual appealing down to the last detail. Not to mention they are quite lovely to look at just on their own. Just look at them
