There’s a couple of VIXX songs I think are really bad, but overall I consider myself a fan of the band. (Especially their early synthpop stuff.)
I felt guilty for sleeping on the Boys’ Record era so I made an effort to check out the group’s new hip-hop unit, VIXX LR, only to somehow be more disappointed than I was the other week when I found out Seunghee had been added to DIA.
It’s not because VIXX LR is a terrible version of the superior INFINITE H or that their entire mini-album is filled with safe generic rap ballads that upsets me, it’s the lack of ~Ken~, the finest visual in all the land, that has me shedding tears for all eternity.
The fact that the sub-unit’s music video has some kind of homoerotic theme to it just makes me even more pressed that MyDol ~Ken~ isn’t in it.
I know that ~Ken~ recently got a solo single, but it was a boring seasonal duet with Hani that didn’t even get an official music video so it doesn’t really count. When I think of ~Ken~ going solo, I envision something like this then I BRB, run to my room, lock the door, stay there for five minutes, then come out with a handful of scrunched up tissues sheepishly saying “What? I have a cold!”
K-pop needs more ~Ken~, not more of that terrible rapper Ravi or this ‘Leo’ guy that I’ve never even heard of despite following VIXX since “Rock Ur Body.”
KEN KEN KEN KEN KEN KEN KEN! ~Ken~
