Just a random picture of Yibo (Uniq) here because I can. And because his profile looks effing perfect.
When it was announced that Kris Wu had filed a lawsuit to terminate his contract with SM, it was around the time of my finals week. Needless to say, my grades for that semester are pretty effing bad. I have buried these dark times in the past and they are to never be brought up again.
I genuinely liked EXO tremendously from the day their endless teasers started releasing and I grew to like them even more when they began promoting together as 12 during their Wolf era. My heart started straying more towards Kris, Luhan, Lay, Xiumin, Sehun (the order changes randomly from time to time). However, I wouldn’t consider myself a die-hard fan that purchases every single one of their albums and memorize the lyrics word for word to all of their songs. Since I wasn’t one of those fans I was really surprised at the impact that the news of Kris leaving had on me.
The news of Kris leaving felt unsettling and I couldn’t concentrate on school or work. I was more concerned about EXO than my own life. This made me realize that actually I held EXO closer to my heart than I wanted to admit. This kind of makes me understand how it’s possible to take so long for the female or male Kdrama lead to realize that they are in love with each other. This shit just happens gradually without you even realizing, you know what I mean?
What I wanted to share is that I support Kris leaving and that I will support him whether he wants to act, sing, model, dance, draw, etc…
He is starring in a movie that is coming out really soon, Somewhere Only We Know, and from what I can see in the trailer, it seems quite interesting (even though I don’t normally find pure romance movies my thing- there needs to be comedy in there to balance out the cheesiness).
Also, the ost, There is a Place, that he wrote and sang for the movie is just simply amazing. His voice was perfect in lowness and softness. It can literally put me into peaceful baby sleep. The music video is, honestly, just an excuse for me to drool over more Kris screen time.
From the trailer and music video, I can already tell I will be getting pretty jealous of the main girl. Despite this, I will still watch the movie once it becomes available in my region.
And this will me…
And don’t mind me here below, I’m just spreading some EXO hotness around. In case… anyone wants to… re-confirm of their level of attractiveness… yes, your welcome.
I was explaining to my friend on how I went to bed around 3 in the morning the night before, but I still managed to have gotten none of my studying done. I was preoccupied with watching random videos on YouTube and somehow I was brought to this music video by a pop music boy group called Uniq around midnight. 3 hours later I have sucessfully watched every single video on Uniq’s channel (I am not ashamed to admit I have watched some of them more than several times) and have done some pretty thorough research on the group.
My friend, that I was explaining this situation to, stared at me oddly and slowly chuckled (in a way that tells me she thinks I am very strange). I was also sleep-deprived because I had a class at 8 in the morning, so that left me around 3-4 hours of sleep to function for the day. But that’s okay, I forgive my friend- I admit that I am sometimes strange.
I have duties of higher priority to be concerned about then whether my friend views me as sane or not, like how am I suppose to deal with these deep feelings that I have developed for Uniq in the time span of 3 hours?? The only logical way I can think of to satisfy these emotions is to keep on gushing about them till they fade away.
The video that started this craze was Uniq’s mv for their song Celebrate. This song is supposedly one of the tracks in the recent Penguins of Madagascar movie (which I haven’t watched, but I will now). I fell immediately for the catchy tune, the awesomely hilarious dance, and the dripping charisma radiating from each individual member.
(Update: I did end up going to the theaters to watch Penguins of Madagascar (American ver.), and the best part was the very end where Uniq’s song was playing and the credits are rolling. I was smiling so hard at the sound of the familiar song, while my friend was looking unimpressed next to me.)
Someone please explain to me how it’s possible to be seduced by a trumpet-blowing dance in the middle of a fountain fixture (2:13)?? I am someone who highly values my sleep, so for me to give up hours of my precious beauty sleep, they must be pretty darn perfect.
Also, I must point out the blond bobbed one (Yibo) at 0:30. I don’t think it’s legal to be this blindingly pretty. My eyes were momentarily blinded by the sight of him so I had to pause the mv to wait for my sight to recuperate.
And the wushu moves at 2:30 of the mv was incorporated so seamlessly into the dance that I decided to deem this part as my most favorite part.
I proceeded to watched all their other mv’s- Falling in Love, Born to Fight, etc.; and all their live stage performances and behind the scene clips. This was where my 3 hours of potential sleep went. I will just have to admit the fact that I am not sane, I am uniq.
