So this has been a very emotional week for boybands, something that I did not ask for! Cross Gene decided to molest themselves, The evil sweetfaced french sisters (also known as Clem and Val ilu) pushed me into the rabbit hole that was History, AND THE BOSS HAD A COMEBACK AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF MOURNING WHEN WE WERE JUST ABOUT READY TO MOVE ON.

That eventful morning I managed to incept Jamie into becoming a fan and she of course demanded an intro post. I'd like to remind you that I am 1. Not Joanne, which leads to 2. a lazy bitch, so therefore 3 is that this will be the tiniest pimp post you will ever see.

Have fun:

Dae Guk Nam Ah or DGNA or The BOSS is a Korean Boyband who debuted in 2010. Dae Guk Nam Ah is translated to "The Boys of Super Space" which explains their international name The BOSS. All of the members used to be in XING or doing other activities under XING ent. in 2010 however they debuted under Open World Ent.

Most people who will talk about them will state that they are exeptionally underrated, with great vocals and dancing skills, but have somehow ended up falling off the radar in Korea. They are though fairly well known in Japan (as Daikoko Danji) where they have had most of their activities. They are nicknamed by many as "The second DBSK".

Two years ago, right before their long awaited Korean comeback, the CEO of Open World Ent. was arrested for a number of sex crimes against female trainees (when some of them were underage). May he burn in the darkest and most painful pits of hell.

They are now signed under POOM Ent. and have now had their first Korean comeback in years with 'Why Goodbye'.

The members:

Mika (Lee Suhoon, 1990-06-28): Power vocal leader, awkward, huge weirdo, actually a bully, looks like count Dracula in his sleep, forehead for miles, inconsistent eyebrows, one questionable instagram update away from becoming Kim Jaejoong.

Karam (Park Hyunchul, 1991-06-28): Highest level in the U-Know Yunho fanclub, nicknamed "God's face", huge failboat, gets smacked around by noonas, resident food monster, shares birthday, height and bloodtype with Mika, Baby you just wanna protect***, secretly a badass, (say the word 'YunJae lovechild' and YOU DIE), prettier in a dress than you'll ever be

Hyunmin (Woo Hyunmin, 1991-07-22): God of the husky voice, potato, used to hate his voice but got over it, putting him and Mika together should be done at your own risk, did I mention GOD OF THE HUSKY VOICE?, eats bugs, hot damn, the second instagram fiend, boner for Beethoven, all that bleach prob got to his brain at some point

Injun (Lee Injun, 1992-03-09): Beatboxer, wannabe MC, resident loudmouth, fashion terrorist, trains at the Hyunmin school of instagram, cute cheeks, Fabio, instigator of trouble, don't seem to have much to say about this one but he's a cutie and ilh

Jay (Jeon Jihwan, 1994-03-31): Poppin' prodigy, gullible little sucker, girl group enthusiast, innocent little cutie that suddenly got painfully hot (WHAT HAPPENED?), and also developed a love for turtlenecks, should have long hair always (Noona's not ok here), Mika's not-so-secret fave baby, DID I MENTION DANCE?

*** I did not want to include the link to the original article about Karam's past sexual harrassment due to 1. it's from AKP and 2. AKP took it upon themselves to include some incredibly gross comments of the victim-blaming and phobic nature, so yeah. But here's what Karam said concerning his past harrassment and how he feels about it now:

“This is why I don’t like older guys coming close to me to make even a slight body contact. Not to the level where I push them away, but I don’t feel comfortable. There have been many other unbelievable things I had to go through.”

Singing: In which I share my fave YOU HAVE TO SEE THESE videos of these dudes' voices!

Ain't no sunshine (Acapella):


Down - Jay Sean


Billionaire


Propose (Noel Cover)


Lady (go fall in love with Hyunmin's high note)


Just gonna leave this here



Well folks, that's all you're gonna get from me! Have fun and go stan!

YOU ARE AMAZING. I DID NOT EXPECT THIS LEVEL OF DETAIL AT ALLLLLLL I LOVE IT I LOVE YOU THANK YOU!

(and thanks kindly for leaving me a message on tumblr because i am so woefully out of practice on lj and forget to come here for weeks at a time)

I have explored every link and watched every vid and basically the long and the short of it is I am in serious awe over their vocals. These kids deserve some attention and popularity. What a shit shit deal they got handed. Very impressed they are persevering after all the tumult in their young careers.

Like, I am a bit agog over the fact that all 5 of them can claim a really unique and well-rounded vocal sound. It only took me listening to a couple of songs to be able to pick out all their individual lines. Obviously Mika and Hyunmin are impossible to miss, but Injun and Karam both have such clear, bright voices. And Jay's voice, while being the least striking of the five, still stands out form the others and his rapping voice is earthy and I love it. But nothing compares to all five of them harmonizing - they RAISE THE ROOF OMG. RAISE THE FUCKING ROOF.

I want to listen to them belt out those amazing harmonies all day. Eargasms all over the place. THERE SHOULD BE AWARDS. (that cover of Proposal? People should be taking each other's clothes off and getting handsy to that.)


Brief thoughts on each member based on the info you've provided here:


Mika - needs to get control of his face. Blows my top off with his incredible range. His high notes are OHMYFUCKINGGOD. No comment on his propensity for being insane on instagram because I have been watching way too much of Heechul and Jaejoong's instagram contributions lately and thus it takes a lot to impress me there. But you're right - if he applies himself he doesn't have far to go. Loving his fawning over the maknae and refusal to behave like the leader in front of cameras.

Karam - he's a doe-eyed little darling isn't he. Also has face-control issues, and his expressiveness is super endearing. A fellow fan on tumblr described him as "the somewhat Jaejoong lookalike," and I thought ehhhhh??? But then you had to go and say "Yunjae lovechild" and I looked again and… well damn. (Not that I'm saying that. Nope. Nuh uh.) Awkward observation wow. His worship of Yunho is possibly the cutest ever. (Heartachy over the sexual harassment bullshit. POOR BABY.)

Hyunmin - is responsible for the constant low-level buzz in my body since I first watched the Why Goodbye mv. I think his voice might trigger earthquake activity at a cellular level in humans. It makes all my molecules vibrate. Also what is that tattoo and 2) why is he covered in oil in that photo I am disturbed. Seriously though that is some impressive Beethoven fanboying, and I went and read his quotes about why Beethoven is his inspiration and damn it if I wasn't legit moved.

Injun - when you said this kid can beatbox you were NOT KIDDING. He's kind of incredible. I watched the vid you linked and my mouth just dropped wider and wider the further he got into it. How does a person make those sounds and have such good rhythm? He is way way cute (I love his cheeks!) and sings like an angel and his hair looks like my fingers would be happy running through it.

Jay - That is a tiny baby who seems to have grown into some sort of god-like grown man-type person, eh? The difference between how he looked at debut and now is a bit gobsmacking, actually. I cannot believe the things he can do with his legs. Is he part taffy/part human? His profile is strikingly beautiful and I cannot agree hard enough that YES he needs long hair. The longer the better. He should grow it to his waist and let me braid it and twist it into buns.



I am feeling really pressed that I can't load up in multiple CDs of these kids. Really very pressed. I just want nice things why can't I have them.


Thank you for posting this, it's been super helpful and I will now start sobbing into my soup that there isn't more of them in the world because my ears need it. SIGH.

(that cover of Proposal? People should be taking each other's clothes off and getting handsy to that.)

one part of me goes "THE BABIES!!" while the other is screaming YES YES THAT'S RIGHT.

I just want an acapella album that I can sit with and just cry to for hours and HOURS. WHY IS THE WORLD SO UNFAIR! And yes to these boys' incredibly difficult journey, I am so in awe that most of these boys were not "GIFTED WITH TALENT" but people with dreams that set out and worked really hard to be amazing singers/dancers (KARAM'S DAD OPENED UP A DANCE STUDIO BC BBY WOULD TRAIN ON THE VERANDA EVERY DAY! TRYING TO BE LIKE HIS PRECIOUS YUNHO-SUNBAENIM! LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT FOR THAT KID)

Oh my beautiful five special little snowflakes!

Mika who everyone was afraid of bc he looked cold and serious, turned out he was just the most awkward thing ever and he has alot of feelings (never told his parents he loved them but when asked to give his mum a message he started crying so hard they had to turn off te camera), little J-rocker lover and wannabe, fashionista, he bullies the babies in the most loving way and everyone is weirded out by him but love him regardless!! (JUST KEEP THE EYEBROWS! PROTECT US FROM THE FOREHEAD). Everytime I look at him and Hyunmin together, there is a voice in the back of my head that goes "JaeChun 2.0" and a chill runs down my spine in fear. Lately he's started adopting nugu bf's and showing them off on instagram.......well on his way indeed

KARAM IS SO PRECIOUS SO INCREDIBLY PRECIOUS! His loyalty to Yunho is INSANE! (he even unfollowed Jaejoong on twitter when DBSK broke up). People call him the "Mommy" but it's more like he's the one suffering from having to live with the two unfit daddies and their respective children. Even so he takes care of them. Holds incredible respect for their leader for some reason. I JUST WANNA SHIELD HIM FROM EVERYBODY'S GROSSNESS bc lord knows he's suffered so much for his face!

HYUUUUNMIIIN! HUSSSKYYY! IF MIKA IS THE HIDDEN WEIRDO, HYUNMIN IS THE OBVIOUS ONE! his instagram is basically just him shirtless or in unfair wifebeaters (BOY DO YOU OWN REAL CLOTHES?).

I think his voice might trigger earthquake activity at a cellular level in humans. It makes all my molecules vibrate.
TRUE FACTS RIGHT THERE. When he started singing in 'Why Goodbye' it was suddenly like all my body chemicals were in harmony again without me even knowing there were something wrong to begin with. I FOUND HOME, HELLO HUSKY VOICE MY BODY MISSED YOU.

Injun looks like an angel, is a baby rascal. Like 90% of makne line's shit is with him leading it and being mastermind (something that poor Karam has to suffer for). If Jay is Mika's baby, then Injun is Hyunmin's baby and we're all worried. His voice is very much lovely yes! (THEY ALL COMPLETE EACHOTHER SO WELL!!!)

AND JAAAAY! ALSO MY NOT-SO-SECRET FAVE BABY! BUT THAT BRING ME PAIN BC IT'S LIKE TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE! THE JEKYLL AND HYDE OF MY CONFLICTING NOONA FEELS! SO HOT IN THE LONG HAIR, BUT THEN HE SMILES AND I'M LIKE "MY BABY"! No joke though, his dancing should be getting awards and special stages! This was the kid who blew away the nation with being a baby dancing prodigy and every year he just GETS BETTER HOW! One day he will probably just leave the band during a show recording from being DONE, but until then....

I'M SO HAPPY YOU LIKED THEM AND THAT YOU CAN JOIN ME IN MY PAIN OVER THEIR UNPOPULARITY! TRUST ME TO LOVE THE NUGUS ALL I EVER DO IS LOVE THE NUGUS!

I have a standing policy of not referring to anyone who is (a) over age 18 and (b) subject to more time in the Korean army than I am as a "boy."

I will, however, call them weirdos. Carry on.

I listened to your links while paying bills this morning -- romantic, I know -- and have to admit they did not blow me away EXCEPT for "Purpose." That was quite good and I wish a higher-quality audio existed.

But I do adore them so and on live shows they do acapella and ballads and VOCALS OMG and I'm just SO IN LOVE PLEASE PROMOTE THEIR VOICES MORE!! They really are a baby DBSK and they have that "kpop boyband" sound that seems to have been missing for years
