Preeeetty sly there, Bok-soo.

So I decided to watch My Strange Hero in which our hero, Bok-soo, returns to the high school that he was forced to leave without graduating due to Past Events in order to exact revenge. I get to about the halfway mark in the show, and while the romance with his old high school sweetheart turned homeroom teacher is picking up steam (not complaining there), Mission: Revenge is not much underway. Cue Bok-soo’s friend and Bok-soo’s knowing look in return:

I may have never finished Encounter, but I do occasionally look back fondly on drunk Park Bo-gum and his dried squid antics.

    That was the best scene in that show. Good for you not finishing, it really limped home on a road to nowhere.

      I got about half way through it and was unfortunately just…bored. Hopefully, we’ll get a better drama out of PBG next time. Maybe a return to villain-dom in the way of I Remember You.

    Although what I really loved about this drunk scene was the ‘navy/gray’ suit thing. That was hilarious.

      Yes! That had me chuckling. I wanted to post the whole drunk clip but realized it was about a 10 minute segment so I refrained. 😂

I’m going to wear this song out with how many times I’ve had it on repeat today.

    I love this song! It has such a “summer” vibe to it. I can totally see this being used in fan made videos about friendly banter between lovers or relatable squad goals.

Perfect listen before heading to sleep. Your voice is so relaxing, Woosung.

Fini’s Last Minute Countdown to Day6’s latest release The Book of Us: Gravity, and why you should be listening to them.

Reason 5 (And Final Reason. For now.): They are extremely passionate about what they do. The series Introducing My Instruments is a joy to watch as you can tell how each member cares deeply about the music they create and treats their instruments as an extension of themselves. I chose to include Wonpil’s video here as I adore the way he articulates the love he has for the songs he plays, calling riffs exquisite and full of emotion (like he’s not the one producing these beautiful sounds from his own fingertips.)

“The keyboard is a window that expands my expression.”

Reason 3: Relatable lyrics. Their song Marathon was a simple but needed reminder when I was feeling stressed and tired that it’s okay to slow down at times. Have a taste:

Don’t you run run run
It’s already been very hard
Walking now
Is okay (okay)

Resting for a bit is also good
Taking it easy is also good
You don’t have to overwork yourself

Don’t you run run run
It’s already been very hard
Even if you walk now
It’s okay…

Reason 2: Flawless discography. I can put on any of their albums and bop my way through the whole thing. Skipping tracks is just not a thing when Day6 doesn’t know how to write a bad song.

Although objectively I agree that this was not the best performance on Produce X 101 last week, there were some things about this performance that I loved. First, Tony was so adorable as the center. I feel like both his dancing and singing have been overlooked throughout the show and he has barely gotten any screen time. It’s such a shame. And then Hyeop. Hyeop. That five step high note was incredible. HOW did it not get more recognition? He got my attention first during the Twit performance and then took it up a notch here. Unfortunately, both these boys haven’t been high in the ranks so I’m putting off watching the elimination for just a touch longer.

This show gives me anxiety. 😂

Since I’ve been missing Junho, I’ll just watch this concert. Again. Gosh, he’s got killer stage presence.

I really liked Euijin on The Unit, so I was happy to see him release a solo track. Both UNB and his original group Bigflo are sadly overlooked compared to more popular groups. There are so many idols out there who have so much talent, but don’t get a lot of time in the spotlight. As for this song, I wish the choreography had showcased his dancing skills a bit more, but it’s still enjoyable and catchy!

I’ve been obsessed with this arrangement of this song for the past two weeks. I NEED Hwasa to record this rock version.
