    I. Love. Them. All seven of them and assorted animals even though I am deathly afraid of cats. I want to squish all of their faces.

      How did you like it? They must be exhausted! I can’t believe the concert went for 3 hours and 40 minutes!

        They were hilarious. Do they always end like that or were they having a hard time leaving because they don’t know when they’ll be on stage together again? I LOVED IT. I love that they kept requesting to play songs like they were at a karaoke bar the rappers either forgot the words to their songs or couldn’t rap them that fast anymore, they all seemed to forget half of the choreography except for the chorus and even then nope! It was SO MUCH FUN. They looked exhausted but like they were having a blast. There was a solid two minutes towards the end when Jackson was just squatting on stage looking at his friends and my heart melted. What did you think? How did it compare to seeing them live?

        They played A which is my FAVORITE GOT7 song! My face hurts from smiling so hard!

          I don’t think they normally do that many encores 🤣 I think they were enjoying it and also wanted to do as many songs for us as possible since it’s been so long since we last saw them together and who knows when we’ll see them perform together again.
          Seeing them live is even better but this was great too.
          I’m glad they did your favorite song!
          I thought it was funny that it seemed like they remembered the I Like You choreo so well considering that that’s from their first album and they don’t perform it much 😄

It’s finally happening! The long-awaited day is finally here!!! GOT7 is coming back in May. I love my boys and I love that they’re keeping their promise to us 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚

This song and mv are so beautiful. I love the dancing. You don’t see couples dancing in kpop very often.

Is anyone else getting this super scammy looking pop-up on DB? I’ve gotten it at least three times already today. @db-staff Is there anyway to prevent this? It only happens to me on DB.

Today is GOT7’s 8 year debut anniversary so here’s a flashback to their debut stage 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚

The biggest surprise for me this year, in terms of music, has definitely been Bambam. When GOT7 announced they’d be doing solo projects in addition to being a group, I was not expecting to like Bambam’s solos that much since I hadn’t liked some of the songs he’d written for GOT7 very much. However, I absolutely loved his debut title track, riBBon, which was fun, bright, colorful, hip, and just so Bambam 💚 Now he’s preparing to release his second album and released this song as a pre-single. It’s not an instant earworm like riBBon was but it is addicting in its own way. I keep coming back to it to enjoy the dancing and Bambam’s and Seulgi’s sweet, gentle voices.

    I still don’t understand why they didn’t give them more freedom in creativity under JYP E. It’s a pity, they could be more appreciated and experiment more. Why they had to stick to their roles – rapper, action responsable, 1st vocal,…?!

    1
    1

      They did sometimes have singers rap and rappers sing when they were with JYPE (Remember You and Face have everyone sing and Moriagatteyo has singers rapping) but I am so glad to see them doing whatever they want now. I’ve enjoyed Bambam and Youngjae’s solos the most so far which kind of surprised me since Jay B and Yugyeom are my biases 😄 I liked their releases too, just not as much as Bam’s and Youngjae’s 💚 It will be interesting to see what they do as a group now that they’ve all had a chance to develop their own style more with their solos.

    Same! Bambam was such a nice surprise for me this year. I knew I was going to like Youngjae’s debut, I knew I was going to love Sunie’s comeback but Bambam was kind of unexpected. ‘Ribbon’ and ‘Look so fine’ are so much fun! and ‘Air’ and ‘Who Are You’ are really relaxing.

    In YJ’s (Vibbin) reaction video Bam said that Jinyoung, Youngjae and him were closer in style and I never would’ve believe that before this year.

    1

      I was probably looking forward to Jay B, Jinyoung, Youngjae, and Yugyeom’s the most. I felt like I already knew what to expect from Jackson since he’d been solo for a while already. I thought Mark and Bam would probably go more rap since they are rappers in the group so I was pleasantly surprised by both of their debuts.
      I don’t remember seeing you on DB before. Are you a new beanie? I’ve been a beanie since around 2017 but I haven’t been very active the last year.

        I was actually surprised the first time I heard ‘Pretty please’, I don’t know why but I was expecting something like ‘Titanic’ even when he was doing things like ‘100 ways’ in that moment.

        And yes, I’m a new beanie ^^ I was watching the site from the shadows until last year that I decided to start participating. But it was only this month that I started to be really active. In a month I’ll probably disappear again tho.

          Yeah, Jackson kind of delved into pop a bit with Pretty Please and LMLY (both of which I love). Jackson does so much, it’s hard to keep track of him 😄 I know he’s in Pan the Pack now but their music isn’t really my style so I haven’t been keeping up with them that closely.
          Welcome to DB! It’s always great to find another ahgase here! How long have you been an ahgase? Do you like any other groups? GOT7 is my ult bias group but I also like SHINee, SuperM, NCT, Super Junior, Oh My Girl, Itzy, and probably more that I can’t think of right now 😄

          1
          2

            I didn’t know about Jackson! This past two years I disappeared from kpop-land. I only watched their dramas and listen to their comebacks, but I have no idea about their other projects and stuff like that. :c

            Anyway, I started to be an ahgase a couple of months before ‘Fly’. I saw their (crazy boyfriend ver) dance practices and I was like “yeah, I have to stan these dorks”, especially because of ‘Just Right’ and ‘Stop Stop It’ dance practices (I think I watch those videos like once a year lol).

            I’m also a My Day (Day6 stan) and Inspirit (Infinite stan), but I like a bunch of other people too, hahaha.

            My favorite soloists are Taemin and BoA.
            My favorite kpop song (for sentimental reasons) is Be My Baby by Wonder Girls.
            When I first started listening to kpop my favorite groups were Miss A, Soshi, 2PM, F(x) and After School, so I listen their music a lot. ^^

            I also like: 2AM, Stray Kids, NCT, AKMU, Seventeen, EXO, Wonder Girls, Kara, T-Ara, EXID, HISTORY, ITZY, IU, Pentagon, MAMAMOO, Red Velvet, Winner, FT Island, CNBlue, F(x), Miss A, Rain, SuJu, A Pink, Baek A Yeon, Jamie, Dreamcatcher, SHINee, BP, etc…

            My preferences make no sense, I know. Hhahaha.

            What about you? how did you decided to become an ahgase? and do you have a favorite crazy dance practice or something like that? hahaha.

            Sorry for such a long answer btw πŸ™

            @enriquequierecagar Here’s a video of Jackson with Pan the Pack. I only watched half of it because the music isn’t really my style but the video is pretty. It’s kind of weird to see him with people other than GOT7 😄 But I’m glad he has people to perform with. Being a solo seems like it would be lonely.
            https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=du5acoVBXRA

            The crazy boyfriend dance practices are the best 😄 I love the one for Stop Stop It where they spend half the time just shoving each other 😂😂😂
            I became an ahgase in 2016. I’d heard beanies talking about kpop and decided to check it out. After two weeks of watching random kpop vids, I saw the Just Right MV and instantly fell in love. After listening to it for several hours, I started checking out their other songs and once I saw If You Do, I had to learn their names so I could find out who the super cute guy was in the center during the “every day every night…” part. Turns out it was Jinyoung 💚

            I like Day6 too but don’t follow them closely enough to consider myself a MyDay. I think Infinite hasn’t been active very much since I got into kpop so I’m not as familiar with them.

            Based on your groups, you must have been into kpop for a while. You like a lot of 2nd gen groups!

            AKMU and SVT were some of the groups I forgot that I enjoy on occasion. They both have some really fun songs.

            No worries about the long answer. I think my answer is just as long 😄

          Thanks for the video!! @raonah

          So we became ahgases the same year and it started because of Just Right? 😲 what are the chances 😊

          Kinda sounds like Jinyoung is your bias, hahaha ^^

          I love DAY6 with all my heart, for me their music is as healing as a drama. I could listen to their music in a loop forever.
          You’re right about INFINITE, they only had a comeback in 2016 and then in 2018 (later the military).

          I met kdramas in 2010/2011 and then kpop (around the same time tho) so 2nd generation groups are totally my jam! That’s one of the reasons why I love INFINITE. They have an unique sound (just like SHINee!) but at the same time their style is sooo old school, you can sense the 2nd generation vibe even in ‘Clock’ (their last single)!

          I think SVT is one of the best groups to listen while cleaning up the house. Their songs have so much energy! (Same with NCT and GOT7).

            All of GOT7 have been my bias at one point or another 😄 My current biases though are Jay B and Yugyeom 💚 I love all of them though.
            I’ll have to check out some Infinite songs. Which ones do you recommend?

            Bam is my current bias wrecker 😍💚 I’ve really loved the songs he’s come out with this year and he’s just such a sweetheart.

            The Chaser seems really familiar. I think I’ve seen that mv before.
            Synchronize is really fun.
            Clock was good. I like the rap at the end where it speeds up.
            I like how the background of Pray sounds really full, like an orchestra.
            Man in Love is really fun. The cat is adorable and the mv feels like a 2nd gen mv 😄
            As Good As It Gets is such a happy-sounding song. I like it 😊
            I really like Destiny. The song and the choreo are so good. Do you know if they shot it in California? The desert parts kind of looked like CA but I’m not sure.
            I watched the dance version of BTD and the comments were saying they were the first group to do the “scorpion dance”. That’s so cool! I see so many groups do that move so it’s nice to see where it all began.
            Moonlight made me smile instantly. I love the jazzy/funky sound.

            0

            Back was epic. It started out like a ballad and then turned into an EDM-type song 😄
            I really like the voice of the guy who started The Eye.
            Hysterie was not what I was expecting. The title made me think it would be a dark song so I was surprised it was a fun, jazzy song.
            Be Mine is a classic! So catchy!
            Air seemed like they couldn’t decide what type of music they wanted to do so they put three different styles together but it works really well!
            Paradise was good too.

    I’m so glad you liked the songs!!
    You describe them very well, they’re fun! and they have a lot of energy! With those songs I think you can understand INFINITE’s style. So~ you could also listen to:

    Bad
    Zero (the vocals!!!)
    Come Back Again (debut song)
    Up to you (more happy sounds)
    Between you&me
    Love Letter
    Nothing’s Over
    She’s Back
    Diamond
    60 sec
    Memories
    Fixed Star (mandatory ballad with old sound, like Playground – GOT7)
    Only Tears (mandatory ballad for moms)

    I’m adding slower songs/ballads because they’re also good at that😄

    Well now some info and TMI:
    The guy that starts The Eye is Sung Gyu (uri leader).
    You’re right! They shot the video in L.A and it costed a lot of money apparently, they joke about it on Weekly Idol.😄
    Yes, INFINITE was the first group to do the scorpion dance. ^^
    The boys are known for their choreographies and for being SYNCHRONIZE (lol). But they were the worst group at playing the random dance game on Weekly Idol. They also gave Weekly Idol wings, since they always tested the new segments of they show (plus, they were the first group to appear in the show and they were hilarious).

    Here’s a little video of my boys being cute and funny on Weekly Idol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vX4tTSR6cgE
    And if you’re interested here’s a long video of the boys being hilarious on Weekly Idol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8dRZAtACxQ

      I’ll have to watch the others later but I watched the dance clip from Weekly Idol and Dongwoo, Hoya, and Sungyeol are really good dancers! L is super cute. I remember seeing him in Angel’s Last Mission Love and I saw Hoya in AM97.

      1
      1

        They are! Especially Hoya ^^
        You could watch his performances in ‘Hit the stage’ (and rewatch Gyeom’s lol) if you want. He isn’t part of the group anymore tho πŸ™

        You can also see Hoya in Devilish Joy or L in Secret Royal Agent. Their characters are funny in those shows.

          I added Devilish Joy to my watchlist! It sounds really interesting. Unfortunately, Secret Royal Agent isn’t on Viki but I realized while loking it up that I just saw L in Bridal Mask! I don’t even remember the character he played though. It must’ve been a pretty small part.

            Devilish Joy is a guilty pleasure. The show is practically a makjang 😂 but it’s also super cute and funny so I like it.
            L’s in Miss Hammurabi (it’s on Viki). ^^
            I haven’t watch Bridal Mask but I don’t think he has an actual character in that show, maybe a cameo?

      Bad is so catchy. I remember GOT7 danced a little of the chorus on Weekly Idol once. It has very distinct choreo too.
      Zero was fun. It’s too bad it looks like they never performed it. I’m sure they would come up with some great choreo for it.
      The mv for Come Back Again was interesting. It seems like they couldn’t decide what concept to go with so they decided to do fun, soft, and manly 😄 The song was good. Was the chihuahua at the end supposed to represent the fans?
      Up to You was super fun. I really enjoyed that. The very beginning kind of sounded like GOT7’s Bad Behavior but I liked Up to You better 😄
      Between Me and You is a sweet ballad. I didn’t really like the rapping though. It didn’t seem to match the rest of the song.
      Love Letter was so pretty I didn’t want it to end.
      Nothing’s Over was fun. The part at the end of the mv where they’re goofing off made me laugh.
      They must’ve had so much fun filming the mv for She’s Back. That was great to watch.
      Diamond was a nice ballad.
      60 Seconds was really good. I liked the lyrics and the singing and rap parts went together well.
      Memories and Fixed Star were really pretty.
      Only Tears sounded so sad 😭

          I’ve been getting some Infinite songs in my youtube recs now and I’ve been checking out the ones that look interesting! I feel like I don’t have the energy to join another fandom though. I spent so much time learning about GOT7 when I first became their fan. I watched all their reality shows, all their mvs, all the GOT2Day videos, every performance I could find, a ton of GOT7 funny moment compilations (and some ship videos 😄). The idea of doing that for another group is too daunting but I have come to enjoy other groups since then. I’ve gotten pretty into Shinee in the past year or two, although I’m not sure I know enough about them to be a Shawol. Anyways, I’ll continue enjoying Infinite’s music when I see it on youtube 😊

      I’ll have to watch the Weekly Idol video later.
      I started watching Devilish Joy and Hoya’s character is really annoying me 😬 He’s so whiny, immature, narcissistic, and demanding. The annoyance was transferring over to actual Hoya in their mvs and performances because I was used to seeing his face and being annoyed 😂 About halfway through the songs you recommended, I think I was able to separate my annoyance with his character from him. A similar thing happened to me with D.O. I first saw him in I Remember You and he was so scary there that I found D.O scary for probably about a year 😄

      1
      2

        HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA.
        Well, maybe you shouldn’t watch The Red Sleeve since Jun Ho’s character is horrible and then you would watch a 2PM video and be annoyed by Jun Ho.

        Ah! Chan Sung’s character in Married My Anti was also so damn annoying and even more abusive than San (JH’s character in TRS), don’t watch that show either if you’re going to watch a 2PM MV any time soon lol.

        1
        1

          Lol. Too late. I already started The Red Sleeve 😄 I’m on ep 12 I think and don’t know if I’ll finish it though since the plot is a bit all over the place and I heard it’s really sad. I like San so far (although I heard he gets more aggressive later) but I think I already like Junho enough for it not to affect my view of Junho! It’s just dangerous when I’m not familiar with the actor. Then their character can affect how I see them as a person 😄

          1

            Ohh, I get it. It makes sense.

      I finally watched the IGOT7 Inspirit’s video of Infinite on Weekly Idol (I love her channel) ! I’ll definitely have to check out a full ep or two.
      Also, I just remembered that I saw L in that drama Meow the Secret Boy. The drama wasn’t great but L is cute and he’s the perfect person to play a cat because he’s so cat-like 😄

        I love that channel too!!

        He is cat-like hahaha, but that’s another drama I’m trying to forget, not because I hate it, but L looks so sad everytime someone talks about it (it had a really low viewership rating in Korea).

            It did, big time.
            His last drama also did well (Secret Royal Agent), our boy’s acting career is fine. What I want is him to end his military service and have a comeback with the whole group. It’s been years T.T

            Great! Then once he’s discharged they can continue as a group!
            I’m wondering when GOT7 will do their service. At least only 4 of them have to go and they all have their solo careers now. I hope the Korean line just go all at once so we can get through the military service phase as quickly as possible and have them all back together again.

            OMG yes! all at once! or at least in two groups (Beom, Jin Young – Young Jae, Gyeom).
            Well, even if they don’t go all at once I just hope they don’t do it like 2PM, I’m not a hottest I’m not waiting 6 years for a comeback with a smile on my face, I would scream at them😂.

    I think he’s on a constant radar of the Chinese government, can’t make any missteps and tell something against it’s policy. I was listening not long time ago how artists are under pressure in China and it’s crazy, scary and more scary how they deal with people like advocates, people who talk openly about respecting human rights, etc. I was very little when there was a revolution in my country and although we are living under extremely corrupted democracy there are some practices which didn’t die from the old times.

      I’m sure you’re right. He must have to be very careful to not get in trouble with the government. He was supposed to do a song for that Marvel movie, Shang Chi, but he ended up not doing it at the last minute, allegedly, because the Chinese Communist Party didn’t like the movie. Mark Tuan ended up doing a song for the movie instead.

        I’m listening to the radio quite often now and there’s France Culture which has really good journalists, I like it more than BBC one. It was good opportunity for Mark.

    @raonah i am always so consistently impressed with his work ethic. He posted today/yesterday the LMLY stage…oh he sang something else first but Im blanking on it. He sang it acoustic. He honestly doesnt have THE BEST voice ever, but I really like listening tk him. The songs are catchy as all get out and he sounds good singing them. I will say, with as much Hamilton, Jackson Wang and Backstreet Boys that I listen to (and Got7 and Saltnpaper and 2pm) that I listen to my top 2 songs according to spotify last year was 3 Things, Jason Mraz and Jay Bs Into You. I freaking LOVE that song.

You all know how I feel about GOT7 so I\’m not going to mention them but my new 2021 crush would have to be Ji Sung. I started watching Devil Judge because of Jinyoung but I fell head over heels for Ji Sung and ended up watching Kill Me Heal Me and Familiar Wife just to get more Ji Sung while waiting for new eps of Devil Judge 😍

I\’m so confused by The Red Sleeve. Why/how/when did Bokyeon quit being a court lady and start working at her aunt\’s restaurant?! I thought they couldn\’t quit being a court lady???
Also, what\’s with the three year time jump??? What happened to the assassins? It seems like they never followed up on that and some of them are still loose even though I thought they captured them after the attack???

    Bokyeon was the only one of the 4 friends that was assigned to the King’s palace (as in San’s grandfather’s palace). When the king died, Bokyeon lost her job.
    At least that’s how I understood it.

    I think the time jump was just to skip past the 3 year mourning period. Nothing much happens during that time since many activities are not allowed out of respect to the deceased king. For example, San had to wait after the mourning period to propose to Deokim.

    They said in episode 9 that she was a maid in the King’s court, once he passed away, she must leave the Palace.
