The Virgin King of TMI returns: A mini-album review

I swear Alexander Lee Eusebio’s existence is the biggest mindfuck since the season finales of LOST. I can’t with this guy. A former U-KISS member, he is most known for his ridiculous hairstyles, devout Christianity, word vomiting all over twitter, and general insanity. He is one exceptional individual. Yet, fangirls (and probably some fanboys) all over the Internet still want to bone him. Go figure.

Oh, right.

I must confess to being a part of their ranks, but in my defense, crazy people can make great lays. Furthermore, the guy speaks seven languages (often all at the same time), so he clearly possesses exceptional oral sensitivity. Or maybe we’re all looking for one-way tickets to special hale. On his twitter, he has dubbed himself the Virgin King, yet proceeds to constantly bait fangirls with blatant innuendo. Harry Plinkett, if you are reading this, I think we have finally found a bigger galactic cocktease than Padmé Amidala. He is also quite fond of TMI, not that that puts off the fans. I wonder what the Virgin King of TMI thinks of his most popular tags over on last.fm: perfection, please let me lick you, marry me, xander, sexiest.

But as much fun as discussing him as a sexual object has been, I’m here to review his mini-album, “I Just.” The fact that it is named after a sentence fragment is really indicative of the effort put forth on its presentation. It is clear his company spared no expense. Check out some stills from the music video for “I Just” (courtesy of fuckyeahukiss on tumblr):

troublemaker: a coda

No, Hyuna and Larry do not pull an Alias-like magical plot twist and are actually secretly alive because the ones who killed each other were actually their doubles and the real Hyuna and Larry are still out there and will return with the wonderful cat for a sequel. Although that would be awesome.

It seems like there’s been quite a bit of blowback regarding the Troublemaker vid and performances. The choreography was changed in live performances due to controversy over the moves being “too sexy” for TV. Stateside, there’s been controversy over a rather… strongly worded review of the video over at Eat Your Kimchi. Now, while I personally do not know Simon and Martina, I do enjoy their blog and believe it is a pretty valuable resource for international K-pop fen. I hoped I was not stepping on their toes when I started this blog, but I feel reassured that other than the focus on K-pop it’s quite different in content and reviewing style (not saying any one is better than the other, either, just different). I have read their “Troublemaker” blog entry and watched the review video. This entry is admittedly partially a response to it, but mostly, it’s a response to the controversy over this video and over Hyuna in general.

I Shall Defy the Laws of Physics, or U-KISS "TickTack" music video review

 

OK so you guys know I’ve got mad love for U-KISS by now. Probably more than is healthy. So I have to recap their latest video “TickTack.” It’s actually a J-pop song, and not a K-pop one, but whatever, it’s still U-KISS. And it is glorious.

but-but… what happened to the cat?

OK so Hyuna and Hyunseung–excuse me, JS–collaboration “Troublemaker” has been quite the controversial topic lately in the online K-pop community (like pretty much anything else Hyuna has ever done). So of course I’m going to talk about it here.
