I'm still impressed by the amount of attention/success they are getting. I find it really surprising and interesting that some of them are taking part/interest in their make up and styling.

I’m happy for them! I need to get into them more but no time because I’m always adulting. Their say my name song is still on loop.

dantethetaco 22nd-Apr-2019 11:45 pm (UTC)
Same tbh I still need to check out their albums. And from the few things I've watched from them I find Wooyoung and San to be hilarious. So, I should really check them out .

You definitely should ;) I know you don't really care for their title tracks but maybe their b-sides you will like. All ATEEZ are total crack heads lol
zumbie_kitten 23rd-Apr-2019 11:27 am (UTC)
Plz do! when you get the time to. They're worth getting into, trust me.
lil_poisonfrog 23rd-Apr-2019 04:05 am (UTC)
I've thought about checking out this group but their name puts me off tbh. I know it's dumb and shouldn't matter but good branding is everything to me in Kpop and I can't get past truly terrible names lol (see also (G)-idle, Teen Top)

veep_throat 23rd-Apr-2019 05:32 am (UTC)
noooo please check them out! THEYRE SO TALENTED
lil_poisonfrog 23rd-Apr-2019 05:33 am (UTC)
Lol I prob will eventually but I already keep up with too much Kpop. I need to start ditching some of these groups whose work has been disappointing me a lot lately...
veep_throat 23rd-Apr-2019 05:53 am (UTC)
LOL yes! please make room for the best bg rookies!!!
veep_throat 23rd-Apr-2019 05:31 am (UTC)
UGH THESE LEGENDS IN THE MAKING
zumbie_kitten 23rd-Apr-2019 11:30 am (UTC)

veep_throat 26th-Apr-2019 10:40 pm (UTC)
I SURE AM!!! I saw them live too :))
zumbie_kitten 23rd-Apr-2019 11:25 am (UTC)
THANK YOU for Posting ATEEZ articles! They so deserve all the love they can get! They're truly one of the best rookies out right now. HELLO TO ALL THE ATINYs here!

dantethetaco I hope ATEEZ will be the group you'll stan next lol. I'm still hoping. Like to be a part of your kpop group list at least ;) Oh and I LOVED how you put everything together! better than what I would've done. THANK YOU again!

No problem^^

I already have Wooyoung's Say My Name fancam on rotation. So it's just a matter that I get a bit of free time to listen to their albums, and I'll most probably start following them xD
zumbie_kitten 24th-Apr-2019 09:09 am (UTC)
dantethetaco Let me know what you think of their albums. Yay! Start following now lol
dantethetaco 24th-Apr-2019 10:47 am (UTC)
Overall, I like their b-sides much more than the titles. They are less "noisy", so is the same case as with NCT for me. I prefer pt2 to pt1. But Twilight might be my fave from both albums. I like everything on part 2 except for Hala Hala, so that one is fully going into my playlist. I need to give It a few more listens for a more detailed opinion since I was playing videogames while listening to them.

Also, I've been watching Wanted and they are hilarious lmao
zumbie_kitten 24th-Apr-2019 03:56 pm (UTC)
Aha! I kinda figured you'd like their b-sides more. AYE! Twilight is one of my ultimate favs and it's one the most popular songs among the ATINYS. Okay, I'll wait till you give final opinion ^__^

YAY! They're a bunch of crack heads throughout the show. I'm so sad it ended last week. Which episode is your favorite?
dantethetaco 24th-Apr-2019 04:02 pm (UTC)
I've not watched everything yet, since I watch whatever episode YouTube recommends me. But the ones where they were playing games for food were they most entertaining. That they kept loosing and Jongho was getting incresingly mad at his dumb hyungs had me dying lmao
shazz_chan 23rd-Apr-2019 04:23 pm (UTC)
ATINY what's up?Who's the bias?:P
For me, Hongjoong + Mingi but boy Seonghwa....
zumbie_kitten 24th-Apr-2019 10:20 am (UTC)
shazz_chan Hi! It's so nice to see ATINYS here in Livejournal.
I'm still having hard time choosing, because I love them all equally. In the mean time, my bias is all of them.

Ah...so Seonghwa is your bias wrecker.

BTW I Love your HJ icon!!! He's so adorable.
I need to change mines to all ATEEZ one of these days, but I've been lazy
butterspike 24th-Apr-2019 01:45 pm (UTC)
Hey there! I rarely post if ever but I have to show up for Ateez! I loove Hongjoong! Seonghwa is my bias wrecker...his duality kills me....T_T
zumbie_kitten 24th-Apr-2019 04:06 pm (UTC)
HELLO ATINY! Same! I rarely post too, just like you, we are summoned when we see the name ATEEZ, haha. I'm thinking of making an ATEEZ Livejournal Community. All us ATINY can hang out and talk and share all things ATEEZ.

Heyy another HJ lover and Seonghwa bias wrecker. I noticed Seonghwa's been bias wrecking a lot of ATINY's biases lately. He's dangerous. Sweet but dangerous, haha.
thebloomroom 23rd-Apr-2019 03:57 pm (UTC)
My nugu kings tbh i love them!!
shazz_chan 23rd-Apr-2019 04:20 pm (UTC)
Rookie kings!! They were so good live, I can't believe I met them like... It was a whole blur but staring up at Mingi's big puppy dog face was a moment <3

Def everyone check out their stuff, they only debuted 6 months ago that's 2 mini album's of gold! Also check out their Wanted reality show cos they're just so bad at word games it's honestly funny XD

Here's a pic I took at the London gig just cos... Hongjoong <3 Even with the mullet o doom you are beautiful lol.

dantethetaco 23rd-Apr-2019 06:17 pm (UTC)
Sounds like you had a great time!

I actually just ended listening both minis, and I like Twilight and everything on pt2 except Hala Hala. I've watched some of Wanted and their VLIVES and they are hilarious!

BTW, the picture is not showing for me :( Edit: Oh, it's on imgur, they look great! For some reason imgur does not let you see embeded pics unless you are logged in.
