The Journey of a Cassie Part One – An Introduction
I’ve finally been caught.
Yes, yes. I’ve gotten the DBSK bug; it’s wriggled its way into my psyche forever and I’ve no one to blame but my precious Julili. My first encounter is one that’s etched in history, never to be scratched from my memory. As with many a fan of the Korean pop phenomenon, my introduction came with the music video for Mirotic [MV].
What can I say? I’m a sucker for incredible dancing, but wasn’t quite expecting these Korean boys to have the kind of choreographed chops that I’d seen with pop acts from the US.
That being said, the flashy dance moves and sexy visage of each member isn’t what made me stay. Though Mirotic was my first sniff, the clincher was a video I watched of their debut to the world. Some sort of Christmas special that BoA and Britney Spears headlined, or something to that effect. The first song they sang was O Holy Night.
Not only is this one of my favourite songs of all time, it’s a tough one to sing, especially in group format. Needless to say, I wasn’t expecting too much. I’ve heard a couple Asian groups and haven’t been overwhelmingly impressed with their vocal capabilities. For me, the dancing is all fine and dandy; however, if you’ve no substance to back it up, I pretty much let you fall by the wayside with very little fuss.
