Okay. Sorry for the lame intro LOL. We’re on part 3 of the Backstage and BTS series! First was 4minute, next was f(x) and now it’s MBLAQ’s turn! Boys are getting hotter and hotter by the minute, and are proving to be the next big idols that fangirls are waiting to claw over. They’ve got the looks, amazing dance skills, good vocals and a world star for a producer. What more can they ask for? Oh, and that guy in the first pic is Rain’s manager.
MBLAQ right before a performance at a music show:
Can you guess what they’re watching? Laughing at other KPOP acts while backstage? No? LOL
Awww.. Mir looks like a tantrum baby
Leader hottie: It’s getting hot in here!! Hot or hate the stylist?
MBLAQ and their nicknames
“How did you get the nicname ‘Yang Samjoo’ and ‘Way Ahead of time Seungho’ ?
“A few days ago on a radio show, I made the mistake of saying that it had been 3 weeks since we debuted, instead of 3 days. So the fans gave me a nickname of ‘Yang Samjoo’ (T/N Yang ‘Three weeks’. ‘Sam’ means three and ‘Joo’ means week.), and I really like it. (the members were happy because it was a good nickname). And please put this in the article: I was considering Rain hyung’s concert as well, so I thought it’d be three weeks (laughter)… But I think I was so nervous that I miscalculated the time.”
You are an issue at the moment due to your sister being Sandara Park
“It’s good that my sister is a singer. It’s been ages since I saw the other family members, but I get to see her in the broadcasting company building. Because I’m with my sister, I’m more comfortable and light-hearted about everything. I hope that 2NE1 and MBLAQ succeed together.”
You must have been at an advantage at the audition because you looked like Rain.
“I followed a dongsaeng (T/N A younger person) to an audition, seeing as I was bored. Because the auditions were already at its 2nd, 3rd stage, I didn’t have faith that I’d get in. I was just in awe because I got to see Jihoon hyung, but people told me to audition. I got in at once. Jihoon was initially reluctant to choose me, but he liked the way that I smiled.”
Any episodes regarding the beard?
“I debuted as a member of TYKEYS, but that didn’t work out well. So I went to audition at a company which seemed the most reliable. I was growing a beard at that time, but Rain told me to shave then come back, so I did it. He thought that I looked OK without the beard, but told me at a later date to grow it back again, so this has resulted in how I look right now. I don’t have any thoughts in shaving just yet.” (Kim Taewoo had recently told their manager that G.O. has a similar feel to him, so he felt happy).
Mir looks so tired!
You are the youngest, but your nickname is the most mature(?)
“When I dance on stage, that part always gets exposed. That’s why I have those nicknames. Whilst the hyungs get nice photos, I get captures with weird expressions or something with nipples in it. They say that I never fail to disappoint. I think it’s a unique and fun nickname.
With Rain and the J Tunes family at Legend of Rainism concert. Can you spot MBLAQ?
MBLAQ at a radio show
Leader reading sweet nothings? That better not be a girl he’s texting!!! LOL
Mir baby: “Don’t let go of my hand, promise?”
Mir: “Fangirls.. HE’S MINE! GTFO!”
Okay. Leader is still my fave. Has anyone watched that radio broadcast where he played the piano? Seriously. Ear and eyecandy! And it’s pretty surprising, MBLAQ’s really not just an idol group with pretty-boys who can get away with a few cartwheels and ab rolls here and there. G.O is not the only one with amazing vocals. Lee Joon is actually a good singer. Dara’s bro, however, needs some work in rapping. The whole image just does not suit him. [fangirls don’t pitchfork me!] Despite being “the most popular member,” as some people claim… Honestly, I don’t think he’s all that.
Yes, Lee Joon. We like your smile like that.
DAMN. MC Hammer pants or not…. Boy’s gonna be the death of me!“`
