The Journey of a Cassie Part Two – The List
Hello, lovers and friends. Yes, I’m back again to regale you all with my new found obsession –thanks a lot, Julz (cue stank eye). In any event, I won’t bore you with meaningless ramble. Let’s jump right into it.
This time around the Ferris wheel, I’m going to be doing something a bit special and, admittedly, a bit ambitious on my part. Seeing as 26 December is the eighth anniversary of DBSK’s debut to the world — I didn’t realise this until I saw literally dozens of fanmade teasers and tribute videos — I want to give people an idea of where I am in this madness, not that many will care, but for the select few with a passing interest in Kpop, it may give you an excuse to, at the very least, check them out.
As much as I’m against Peking orders regarding group acts, especially when each member is a crucial part of a very substantial whole, I’m going to put any real fangirl bias aside and break it down to musical science — or at least my version therein. Yes, yes. I’m actually going to put the members of DBSK in ascending order from my least to most favourite.
Part of me feels a bit bad doing this, but I have to find a way to rationalise my madness and take it from crazed obsession to reasonable adoration.
Truth be told, there was a bit of a mental tussle for me as regards the bottom two and the top three. Seeing as I’ve already split the five members into respective clumps, one can clearly see that not all bias can be bypassed in lieu of absolute equality. So, let’s just get it out in the open. I tend to favour JYJ over HoMin; however, again that’s another blog for another time.
I’m excited about reading this list. I have recently been getting into the OT5 and it’s such a weird thing to add your own opinion when some have been sorting out theirs for years.
@Cheryl, Hey. I’m glad somebody’s excited…HaHa.
Unlike most, I didn’t have years to sort any opinions out. Literally, I came to the fandom, like, two or three months ago, so I had MUCH to catch up on. Luckily for me, I’m a quick study and once I sink my teeth into something (from tennis to music) it’s all over…OBSESSION ENSUES AND IT NEVER ENDS!!!! ::ahem::, sorry about that.
Anyway, hope you stick around. I won’t be posting these everyday, but sporadically until I reach number one…hopefully that will fall on the 26th. We’ll see how I do. Wish me luck :)
After much nagging from Julz, I did learn the names… but it took me longer to learn the names in DBSK than in Big Bang, maybe because I have more friends that are into Big Bang so I was constantly bombarded.
On first impression, I would have ranked Changmin probably #2 or #3 – I think everyone puts Jae on #1 on first impressions hahahahaha. After watching the DVD, I told Julz that my ranking was changed, and Changmin ended up in #4 or #5 depending on the song and situation. xD
I will let you know the rest as you go along, so we don’t spoil anything haha.
But right now, I’m agreeing with you.
@amy, Oh, YAY! I like it when people agree with me…HaHa. Hopefully, it gets interesting as the list goes on. I’d like to see if any discussion actually gets started amongst the Cassies, though my little voice probably isn’t all that influential to spark conversation. It may or may not be, but as I pointed out, it’s a little bit of a mental strain on my part with the top three in particular.
I never ranked him that highly at any point in this craziness, so part of me always knew that I was going to put Changmin 5th (I won’t say last, because I DO like him…his personality just tickles me and I love his sense of humour to no end!)
It took me a second to learn their names as well (for instance, naming Micky and Yoochun as separate entities at one point…FAIL XD), but once you get invested…there’s no turning back…HaHa.
I’ll try to remember to reveal my first impressions for all of them, although I don’t think that’s going to be a problem…HaHa.
@Camiele White, I don’t like their ‘English’ names. LOL So I just stuck to Yoochun and Junsu xD and the likes.
I remember I did some graphics for Julz, and I kept saying that those two looked alike, it was messy to keep files and PSD layers in order xD
Anyway, I don’t know enough of DBSK to keep on talking. I just remember thinking that it’d be awesome if Changmin got his wish to charm Emma Watson at one point. hahaha.
You know, I am surprised that I agree on putting Changmin as number 5. Instinctly I would put Yunho, but that is when I am ranking him as a vocalist. In an overall evaluation he would be higher.
Aw lol, this reminds me at my early days as a Cassie. I would then rank Junsu last cus I just couldn’t find him attractive. Today he might just be on the number 1 spot hahaha. Aw gosh, I guess it’s time to revaluate the guys and see where they are standing. It’s hard to be objective when I am so “biased” but I guess it could be fun to try!
@Julyssa, And that is why I’m making this list…because I’m a noob and I’m actually able to evaluate these things from a sane point of view :-P
@Camiele, Are u calling me nuts? :P
@Julyssa, Abso-fucking-lutely! HaHa!
