I love this routine. The boys are always on point when it comes to dance.

I love the fact Starship is so consistent with releasing practice vids for the boys. Boyfriend has some amazing choreo that needs to be seen in all its glory~

Really love this dance, they're really on point with the music.
Never been a big fan of Boyfriend, but I really like their latest releases. Especially their last album. Now I only need to know their names.

This is the state I'm in right now.

I know it's Donghyun, the twins, and... some other guys.
thank_yous 21st-Jan-2013 06:10 pm (UTC)
Lol, I know the twins and the youngest one. And then there are the older ones...

The Sexy Fearless Leader is Donghyun, Hyunseong who's rumoured to be in Romantic & Idol S3 and Jeongmin.

It's easier to learn their names by using tumblr tags like http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/Jeongmin

I'll help with the names:

one in wine red: Jungmin.
one in black: Hyunseong.
one with scarf: Donghyun.
one in black with logo: Minwoo.
one in white: Kwangmin.
one in blue jacket: Youngmin.

Kwangmin and Youngmin are twins and what sets them apart is usually their hair and facial features (Kwangmin usually has more of a masculine face and darker hair).
lol sorry, just wanted to help with the names ^^;;.
thank_yous 21st-Jan-2013 06:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you <3
I already knew the twins names and Minwoo (Only because I wanted to know if they were younger than me when they just debuted XD)
I have more problems with the older ones, which I'm more interested in tbh.
But thank you, that helped (:
very_pinku 21st-Jan-2013 06:15 pm (UTC)
haha yeah, the older ones are nice<3. Usually I remember Jungmin as like the one who sings first and softly, Donghyun's really skinny and has more of a nasally voice, while Hyunseong is more bulky and has more of a smooth voice.
There's too many idol groups but I really love boyfriend because they improve every comeback :D.
thank_yous 21st-Jan-2013 06:29 pm (UTC)
I really like Hyunseong's and Jungmin's voices.
They indeed improve with every comeback especially their lives. While I wasn't interested in their first few releases, I really enjoyed their last 2/3 releases.

I also think Kwangmin and Youngmin sound different when they talk? Or am I imagining things?
fallingfortruth 22nd-Jan-2013 12:30 am (UTC)
You're not imagining it, Youngmin has a slightly deeper speaking voice, and is also very slightly taller. My sister and I's fan-theory is that part of why their musical direction is shifting is so that he can sing more, because his voice was too deep for their older, pastel-paisley-suit style music.

Kwangmin is such a manic pixie dream boy when you listen to him talk about himself (their Gurupop show ep is totally worth watching, btw) that it's kind of embarrassing.
lightframes 22nd-Jan-2013 05:33 am (UTC)
I knew one of them had a deeper voice! And I have to watch that Gurupop show when I get a chance. Thanks!

There's a truly magnificent section where the hosts (Daniel from Dalmatian, who's from LA, and San-E, who studied in Atlanta for quite a few years) ask the members to give each other English names, and they dub Minwoo "short", Jeongmin "very short", the twins "Right Chopstick" and "Left Chopstick", Donghyun "Angry Birds" (because of the angle of his eyebrows), and Hyunseung "Guinea Pig". It's fairly priceless.

You definitely won't have problems telling them apart after it's over, that's for sure. :D

(I actually really enjoy the Gurupop show generally, because it's fairly fun, and also lets you discover who of the idols studied hard at English hagwon. TK from C-Clown in specific has a really excellent speaking voice in English. His accent is one of the best of the idols who aren't kyopo/haven't studied abroad.)

Dead at Angry Birds Donghyun, omg. I'm trying to keep an open mind since I don't know that much about the group but I think he's already my fave and I can't really help it???
fallingfortruth 22nd-Jan-2013 05:55 am (UTC)
If he's your fav you might also want to poke around on the internet to see if you can find a subbed version of "Conduct Zero", which is a show that both Donghyun and Chaos's Park Taeyang were on during high school. It was one of those sort of "tough love" programs where delinquents/bad students were encouraged to learn how to study/get better grades and become better people.

Here's an article about it: http://www.allkpop.com/2011/06/boyfriend-member-donghyuns-rebellious-past-revealed

But I definitely think that he's a good bias to have! Around our house we tend to call him Fearless Leader, because he's so much older than the rest of the band that he occasionally has these visible "oh god, I'm old" moments when the rest of them are extra teenager-y.

(Minwoo and Youngmin are my biases, because I am a sucker for a smirk. Stupid noona killers. *shakes fist at the sky*)
lightframes 22nd-Jan-2013 06:13 am (UTC)
lol it would be amazing if I could find that subbed. I'm building a list of shows to watch over here.

Yeah I think that's part of why I like him? I started watching this season of Hello Baby today and even though it just started he already gives off that "mature guy" feeling. Or "secretly a bad boy and hiding it really well" feeling.
lightframes 21st-Jan-2013 06:06 pm (UTC)
I'm obsessed with this song right now. It's really not healthy. I love the choreo, too.

Donghyun, can I get that scarf?

ohlookshiny 21st-Jan-2013 06:23 pm (UTC)

b1gay4 21st-Jan-2013 07:38 pm (UTC)

yesungholic 21st-Jan-2013 08:31 pm (UTC)
when these boys debuted with "Boyfriend" I was sure that I was never going to stand them.
I was so wrong!!!!! Since "Don't touch my girl" that I've been in love with them! They are perfect!!!
hpn88 22nd-Jan-2013 12:07 am (UTC)
Someone tell me cause im too lazy to look it up, is the song by sweetune? it sounds like something infinite might do
fallingfortruth 22nd-Jan-2013 12:31 am (UTC)
Good guess! It totally is.
xalter_egox 23rd-Jan-2013 12:44 pm (UTC)
While I like Janus more than this song, the dance is reaaally good~ :D
