A Post About Key

I've missed this face.

So the other day I was thinking about my blog and realized that I haven’t posted about Key in a while. I feel guilty because I know that there are a bunch of crazy fangirls some of you out there who subscribed to receive updates about Key, and to put it bluntly it would kind of suck to subscribe to a blog wanting a specific and not obtaining that specific thing. Even if it that thing is a super sexy K-Pop idol.

I proceeded to brainstorm Key-related things to blog about – but then I stopped myself. When did I ever have to think before blogging about Key? All of my fanboying posts in the past have been spur of the moment, “oh my gosh he’s so hot” type posts. The fact that I had to force myself to come up with something to say about Key discomforted me and caused me to feel slightly strange, to be honest.

It’s not like I’m not a fan of Key anymore. It’s just that I’m not as obsessed with him as I once was. Maybe it’s due to the dearth of new songs or music videos from SHINee (December 7th, woo!), a lack of nailed-by-Key girl-group dances, or maybe the one-sided relationship I’ve always had with him has transformed into more of a friends with benefits just friends type thing.

I also experienced an epiphany that revealed to me that I’m truly a fair weather fan of Key and K-Pop overall. When Key and SHINee release a new music video or do something spectacular I’ll fanboy and possibly post about it, but when they’re just performing concerts and doing small stuff I’ll write about other things. It’s similar to the structure of the average K-Pop follower – when a group makes a comeback we all go crazy over them for a while, then they slowly fade into the background, and another group makes a comeback and we go crazy over them, then they die down a bit, etc.

I’d like to end this mini-update/ general notice/ whatever you want to call it  by saying that Key is still attractive. And that Jongkey still lives. And always will.

I wanted to save this for later, but I couldn't resist. Til next time!

I’m back!/ 5000 Views/ Key Photo Splurge #2

Alas, I have returned from my testing-induced hiatus. I’ll try to post regularly from this point on, so expect complete and utter nonsense some awesome posts. Or at least average posts. I blame my continuously copious amount of homework.

That picture somewhat symbolizes my relationship with homework. Except that I’m not addicted to it. Although by looking at the time I spend completing it, one would assume that I am…

Also, this blog received its 5000th hit yesterday! Thanks to all of my subscribers and commenters – you guys keep me going, and I’ll try my best to update this site with various pop related articles/ book reviews/ personal things to keep you entertained. Because we all know that who I am as a person is no fun, which is why I have no friends in real life. ):

I’m kidding. Sort of. On that note, here are some photos of Key (whose name I wrote on my friend’s eraser today, so HA, I do have friends! yeah…)

So this proves you can be hot with glasses...

Tall, dark, and... Key!

HAHAHAHA... wait.

Interesting hairstyle. (Jongkey woo!)

Sometimes, you have to love fangirls.

See you guys later, have a great weekend. (:

Key’s Art Exhibition: Pent-up Anger?

So cute, I know.

Vs.

... A bit disturbing?

Last month SHINee’s Key showed 16 of his works at the Boutique Monaco Art Gallery. I’m a bit confused by some of them.

The cake is okay, I guess...

Yeah, er, that's a lot of bad words...

I’m not an artist or anything, but I think that what he’s done here is a little strange. “I love ice cream”? “Humpz”? “Fu**”?

Of course I do love Key, he is my bias. I just don’t know what to think of his rather abstract and uncouth pieces. They look like average doodles to me, but I’m not one to judge – art is a personal representation of oneself, right?

But if that’s the case, then I worry for Key. Could he secretly be harboring an anger management problem? Maybe he’s tired from promotions and working on the next album? Overflowing rage from breaking one of his nails?

Or is it a message to Shin Se Kyung, demanding that she get the hell away from Jonghyun pleading that she leave Jonghyun alone?

Then again, Jonghyun did leave this little message to Key in the gallery’s guestbook…

Jonghyun's message to Key

 English translation:

“Kibum-ah…
You really do everything after you grow up…
Not bad, I’m crying…keke
Anyway, a whole lot of beautiful artwork
You have to become more beautiful yourself
Nah, what I mean is that …keep progressing
Fighting!”

Key’s Top Ten Girl Group Dances

His hips don't lie.

Welcome to my compilation of Key’s top ten girl group dances, from #10, all the way to #1. (: I understand if you can’t tear your eyes away from the dancing figure above to read the rest of this post – I’m having a bit of trouble myself…

For those who are unaware, Key is a member of the South Korean group SHINee. He’s well-known for his singing, rapping, and dancing – he’s a triple threat, and plays multiple parts in the group’s vocals and choreography. What also makes Key stand out is his amazing ability to perform dance numbers originally made for female groups. If you are aware, well, you should definitely know that by now. If not, prepare to be enlightened.

This list is based solely on my own opinion. I don’t think there’s a way to say “Oh, well, Key’s hips move about two degrees farther in dance x than dance y, therefore dance x is better”, but I do believe that his charisma and execution of each dance differs. Most importantly, enjoy this ensemble dedicated to Key! (aka, list constructed by crazy fan boy)

10. “Chu” by f(x).

I wouldn’t have discovered 90% of the K-Pop songs I know now if not for Key’s dancing endorsement. I found out about “Chu” through this, then Nu Abo, La Cha Ta, etc. Now, I’m a huge fan of f(x).

9. “A” by Rainbow.

This probably would have been moved five spots higher if he actually pulled his shirt the move off at :12.

8. “Bo Peep Bo Peep” by T-ara.

No explanation necessary.

7. “Abracadabra” by Brown Eyed Girls.

There’s another video on Youtube where you can see more of his hips – but I like this one because of the sheer seductiveness of his face. Oh baby.

6. “Hoot” by SNSD.

That walk, those hips… anyone else think Key should be the tenth member of SNSD? He’s attracting a lot of attention to them already, SM might as well include him.

5. “Genie” by SNSD.

I like how he out dances all of them. Get it girl! (er, I mean, boy…)

4. “Good Girl Bad Girl” by Miss A.

The best part is when he gets on the floor, hands down. You would think that he’d be embarrassed, but his confidence took me by surprise. I suppose when you’re Almighty you don’t worry about what others think of you.

3. “Because of You” by After School.

LOL, look at Jonghyun in the back! JONGKEY LIVES, I TELL YOU! Um, the dance is good too…

2. “Madonna” by Secret.

I wonder if Key buys his pants on sale, because at my house they would be 100% OFF. Sorry, I had to use that one (it’s true, though. Just kidding. Sort of).

1. “Muzik” by 4 Minute.

This is the only one I knew the placement of when I began the list. From :48 on is perfection… the hips, the facial expression, it’s all sensual and for show. If anyone doubts Key’s dancing ability, this video is irrefutable evidence of his tremendous talent.

There are a few other “honorable mentions” that were too short to post: “Gee”, “La Cha Ta”, “Hurricane Venus”, “Mr.”, to name a few.

What do you think of this list and Key’s girl group dances? Should any of these performances be moved up or down? Did I forget to include any? Let me know your thoughts! (:

2000 views!/ Key Photo Splurge #1

A few days ago my blog received its 2000th visit, woo! Thanks to all my friends and subscribers for commenting and being awesome in general – but more importantly, thanks to all my lurkers, who supply me with the views despite not commenting and hurting my feelings in the process. I still love you guys, in a way. Just kidding. Sort of.

Seriously though, thank you to everyone who visits this blog. (: I don’t have a niche nor do I have many connections at this point, so it surprises me that I have any viewers at all. Undoubtedly I would continue to blog even if my view count decreased, but it motivates me to do so more often when I know people are reading what I have to write. Or if you’re just looking for pictures of Key, that’s cool too.

Speaking of Key, I have a headache from taking a four-hour exam so I’ve decided that instead of writing something intellectually profound, I’ll just post a multitude of photos of Key. (insert fangirl scream… now)

Oh baby.

This made me think of Key singing "Friday"... so much good and bad in one thought!

Key in pink is perfect.

Key kissing himself? Now that's narcissism.

The OTP.

*Disclaimer: None of these photos belong to me, only the person featured in them. (;
