My dramawatching and DB-ing urge is finally coming back. Just in time for my exam on Monday. Oh goody. I’ve been trying so hard to resist that urge, but while I’ve managed not to start a drama, do I actually end up reading? Nooooooo….
Instead I keep listening to Sungwoon’s Nell cover from KoMS over and over again while getting more and more emo cos it’s just so gooood and so heartfelt.
And of course then I had to go and listen to Seperation Anxiety, the album the song is from, cos well, Nell, and now I’m getting even more emo. Gosh. Such a silly bean. Really should go do some of that reading instead.

    I’ve listened to it before but didn’t post it ’cause I knew you will 😉 . I felt proud that he sang his Sunbae song, Nell’s song are indeed emo *latest proof looking at you forever +1* , there’s just one thing bothering me : what with that flute, I don’t like that arrangement -_- .

      Hehehehe thank you for letting me do the honours 😉 He’s so addicted to sad ballads, I’m not surprised he sang a Nell song, especially since it coincides with their unit promos and his voice suits their songs really well too! Yeah, I can’t even think of a single song of theirs that isn’t sad kekeke.
      I didn’t mind it much here, but then I mostly just focus on his voice 😂 But tbh the reason I stopped wathing KoMS is cos I really don’t like the band. They have a tendency to make songs sound the same and kind of annoying?

      How did you like Forever +1 btw? I really loved the last minute, but I wish they’d blended their voices more before that last part, it sounded a bit too seperate to me before they started harmonizing.

        “I can’t even think of a single song of theirs that isn’t sad” : Ocean of light, Perfect, Newton’s apple, and no offense intended it’s just the title : could you shut up for a minute ?
        But I must admit yay most of their songs are sad, but not just sad, it’s sad , comforting, inspiring, soothing, oh and so much more , they’re Nell <3 .

        I've listened to some songs from YT suggestions for KoMS and I was annoyed by that flute and guessed they made similar arrangements ^^' , I haven't watched it and then let's say I don't like Kim GuRa MC style so I was never tempted to watch that program ^^'.

        I liked Forever+1, it got that Nell vibe but then it's a boyband matter due to having several singers : it's like A sings, B sings, C sings and then A,B and C sings. I made an mp3 of the guide song by JongWan, it's only 1min but it's my fav' version of all =P .

          Ahh yeah, it was just more of a “off the top of my head” kinda thing hehe, I don’t listen quite as much to Nell as you do I think ^^
          Mmmh, it’s like their own brand of sad that isn’t just sad, but other things at the same time as well.

          KoMS is in many ways a great program that I love, but after having bingewatched it a lot way back when, the band got on my nerves and the talking sections started to get boring when it was about people I didn’t know lol, so now I just ff through eps when I know someone I like is in it.

          I really liked Woon’s eps tho, they gathered a lot of good singers in an attempt to end the current queen’s long reign. Which also made me extra proud that Woon go to round 3, cos most idols don’t even get past round 1 and hardly ever past round 2, yet he went up against a really good singer in 2 and still won. And the guy who won over him in the even won over the current queen + Woon hadn’t even prepared a song for round 3 and still sang well, so like *is a happy (and fangirling) clam :P*

          I feel like Zico and Dynamic Duo managed to blend the members’ voices better and I think that’s bc Nell just isn’t used to making songs for more than one singer. I don’t actually know if they’ve ever done it before, but I don’t think they have? So it’s unfamiliar to them and thus harder for them to arrange.

          Hehehe well the one with Woon is obv my fave 😉 But I actually like the fancams of their live from the Day 1 concert much better than the studio ver (probably cos Woon had a cold when they recorded it) and more than the official live which was shot on Day 3 it seems, their voices sounded kinda tired :/
          I’ve loved their voices together since Downpour, I hope we get an actual Downpour reunion, aka with Jaehwan, some time.

            haha a longer reply indeed ^^, I’ll try to reply to all.
            I have always listened quite often to Nell with some “off” time when I go back to other artists but then it’s like a cycle with bands I like.

            About KoMS, I’ve always thought it would be a program nice to watch to try to guess the singer , then reality is I see it on soompi with the identity already revealed , but when I listen to the song, I can’t help saying “of course it’s him, how can you not recognize his voice ?” (Roy Kim, JaeHwan, and some other) . Also I don’t know that much singers that well to recognize their voices, so I’m glad soompi news exists haha x) . Glad that he advanced till round 3, he does sing very well 🙂 .

            They said it was their first time working with a boyband, also they decided the song repartition quite late in the process because JongWan seemed to be quite a perfectionist (which doesn’t surprise me haha), so for a first challenge they did quite well ^^ . Honestly I’m more happy having seen them in a K show than having another WO song ^^’ .

            I don’t have enough music knowledge to notice how their voices sound different between the recording and the live,or day1 and day3, I trust you on that one 😉 . Also you know JaeHwan is my fav’, so I can’t say no to a Downpour reunion =P

            @kudoran
            Haha yeah that’s me with my fave artists. It used to be a cycle of Western artists like Billy Joel, late-era Beatles, Rufus Wainwright, but now it’s more like FTI, Zico, Park Hyo Shin etc hahaha.
            Also I get voice obsessions and clearly my current one is a tiny fluffy cloud pfffttt

            It’s sooooo hard to guess the singers when you don’t soompi or yt comment hints tbh LOL. Especially since a lot of the contestants aren’t actually pro singers. The most I usually managed to guess was whether or not someone was actually a singer and whether or not, if they were, they were idols/had idol training.

            Yeah I watched the XCon eps, poor boys had like no time to practice lol! Apparently Jongwan makes singers do the takes all over from the beginning every time instead of redoing just the part that wasn’t okay, I had no idea he did that, but it might be one of the reasons their songs are so emotional, bc it’s sung in one take and thus you get into it more.
            Hahhhaa I can imagine! I’m thrilled my fave members got to work with Nell, plus hearing them sing more lines lol. But also yes, it was just such a delight to see Nell on a show! I love how savage they were 😛

            Hahaha mianhae 🙈
            I knew you wouldn’t say no to that 😉
            I really hope we’ll get a Jaehwan-Woon duet, they keep saying they want one and their voices sound sooooo good together, but it never happen*sad bean*

            I know it’s really hard to recognize voices *I’m not able to recognize voices of boyband, always thankful towards YT coloured lyrics video haha*.

            I watched an old video of Sunggyu talking about working with Nell for his solo album and saying it was really hard since he had to repeat again and again. It reminded of Haha struggling with Zion.T (such a perfectionist O_o) during Infinite challenge music festival in 2015.

            About Xcon they were savage, shy and unexpectedly cute he clapped while still holding his cup, I mean how can I resist to such clumsy, cute guy with glasses… I can’t <3

            We can hope for a collab after their disband, but it's most likely not going to happen :S .

            Also you cannot post about Nell, JaeHwan, Roy Kim (and well I won't quote all my fav' bands) w/o expecting me to upvote or comment as well =P , anyway thank you it's always a pleasure to see posts about Nell ^^

            Yeah I heard that about Sunggyu as well, poor guy haha
            Oh yeah, can definitely see Zion.T being a perfectionist.

            They were adorable and funny! I really wish we could see more of them on tv hehe.

            Actually even tho JBJ disbanded, Taehyun and Sanggyun just released a duet. And since Taehyun is from the same group/agency as Woonie, I don’t think there’d be any problem from that side. Their agency seems pretty laid back and focused on the artistic side of things and on their artists’ happiness, so I doubt they’d block a duet. Dunno about CJ E&M tho :/

            Hehehehe I will make sure to remember that if I ever need to up my number of likes 😂 *jk*
            Anyways *fistbump for mentioning Roy Kim*
            *and is now kinda curious as to what your full fave list would look like*

            I saw the duet of Taehyun and Sanggyun, again thanks Soompi . I don’t know the agencies well, let’s hope CJ E&M will let it happen ^^ .

            My list of fav’ has changed when my hard drive died, so there are artists I couldn’t listen to as often as I did (+ was lazy to do again the full process of getting the music : Urban zakapa, acoustic collabo, Youhna and others) .
            Here are artists/bands I listen the most often to (no ranking) : 10cm, AKMU, Bolbbalgan4, Busker Busker, Jang Beom June (he’s from Busker Busker), Clazziquai, Ibadi, Jung Sung Ha, Loveholic, Nell, Roy Kim, Soran , Yiruma.
            Then I listen to other artists, drama ost, kpop, depending on my mood and YT suggestions haha, also keeping up with kpop is too hard haha x)

            Ahhhh this is gonna be a long list I feel hahahah. I’ll try keke

            The ones you prroobbably already know/we just talked about them haha: FTI, Winner (EXIT era and Yoon/Mino non-Winner stuff mostly), Roy Kim, Nell, 10cm, Jang Beom June, Zico (and some Block B), Zion.T, Park Hyo Shin

            The rest: Duetto, Drunken Tiger/Tiger JK, Jeong Jinwoon, Drug Restaurant, E-Sens, Primary, Kim Doo Soo, Kyuhyun, MC the Max, Mad Clown, old Mamamoo stuff, Nu’est, Kim Kak Sung, Kkakku, Lee Moon Sae

            Random songs here and there: The Koxx, Jun Bum Sun and The Yangbans, The Solutions, Ruvin, P-Type, Oohyo, Kim Feel, Lee Juck

            Aannnnddd I’m gonna stop here cos otherwise it’s gonna get really really long LOL. Generally I don’t really listen to artists’ whole catalogue, but go picking songs from here and there a lot lol.
            I spammed a bunch of indie songs on my wall a little while back btw, if you’re interested. They were mostly of the more indie/relaxed vibe cos Beanies seem to like that most, although also some rock and more happy songs, but yeah, there are some good artists there with like next to no recognition.

            wow thank you ^^ I know some of them. I’ll listen to it later this week, that will be a change in my playlist haha. I’ve listened to Winner latest album several times after its release, I like it a lot esp. “air” 🙂

            It’s a very, errr, ecclectic list lol, cos I pretty much listen to all genres except heavy metal. So there’s everything from slow indie songs to hiphop in the list I just gave you haha.

            @kudoran Thank you so much! ^^ I already saw it this morning actually haha. I can’t believe they even made the time to make a comparison like that, yet didn’t even post a single thing about the change in queen/king pffftttt. I’m seriously starting to believe their rumor that the MBS tweeter is a gureumdan 😂

            Also, I now kinda want them to do an actual collab with them both singing. *welcome to Kaybee’s Impossible Collabs Dream Factory* *this has been Impossible Collab Dream #838830307*

            “Impossible Collab Dream” haha ^^ ,
            well and what if I say that among my fav’ bands 3 of them already disbanded T_T , that’s my type of dream : Impossible Comeback :S , the hardest one is Loveholic since the vocalist hasn’t been active since ages , one of my fav’ female voice #impossiblecomebackdreamIhadsincetoomanyyears
            side note : 10cm is now a one man band, hoping he won’t stop doing music

            also about your impossible collab dream it’s possible, for example with shows like Yoo Hee Yeol sketchbook 😉

            Yeah I know, I’m so sad 10cm isn’t a duo anymore *sniffles*

            Ooohh I didn’t know he’d sung this with Ha Dongqn! Thanks for linking it! And yeah haha, I guess one day, maybe, it could be possible. And Nell really seemed to love Woonie’s voice, so who knows heh.

            I think my most impossible Dream Collab yet is probably Woozi, Woon, Yoon and Yoongi in one unit. Like. That would never ever happen. It would be awesome though. Especially since they all write and compose songs. And no one’s a weak link in terms of singing/rapping or dancing. I really really needs this collab to happen…. *why do I always come up with these impossible collabs whyyyyy*

      Kekeke that’s true, it always seems kinda funny 😛 The guy who won this ep (most likely Han Dong Geun) wore a Bob Ross mask and I just couldn’t take him seriously lmao.
      The red panda mask isn’t too bad tho keke, altho it just made the smol bean even cuter whenever he did something in the interview sections 😂
