2nd gen love never dies

I was listening to SHINee’s 1and1 repackage on the way to work this morning and it was really hitting me how great it really is. The harmonies are so insanely good. They have just honed their sound to perfection. It got me thinking about a lot of the “older” (mostly 2nd gen) groups that fans drift away from as new groups show up. There’s nothing wrong with being a fan of the trendy groups of the day, but fans are really losing out by not checking out albums from these older groups. The older groups are really at the top of their game, having been together so long, experiencing so much, and experimenting with tons of different styles and sounds. A lot of these groups are putting out the best albums of their careers in the last couple years - SHINee 1of1/1and1 (my favorite), B.A.P Noir (amazing), B1A4 Good Timing (zero filler on this album), CNBLUE 7ºCN (a group playing actual instruments!) TVXQ’s last album Rise as God (literally God-level), 2PM Gentleman’s Game, No.5 (killed me with their sexiness). These albums are full of differing styles, great songwriting, creativity, and fabulous vocals by a bunch of guys who have been in the game for a long time. Part of what’s great about all of these groups/albums is that they don’t really cater to trends anymore. So while they may not be as trendy/popular, they get to focus on what’s most important - just making great songs that fit the strengths of the group. It’s a shame that people miss out on it. But anyway. I’m here to sing the praises of groups like these and I still look forward to all their new releases.

K-POP Legends (1/???) DONG BANG SHIN KI (동방신기, Rising Gods Of The East)

Formed by S.M. Entertainment in 2003, TVXQ began as a five-member boy band that  rose to international prominence in the late 2000s, after the group achieved critical acclaim in the Korean music industry for their best-selling albums “O”-Jung.Ban.Hap. (2006) and Mirotic (2008).  Selling over 10 million records in the first 10 years of their career, TVXQ have become one of Asia’s most successful music acts of their generation. They are often referred to as “Asia’s Stars” and the “Kings of K-pop" for their immense success and contributions to the Hallyu. According to the Oricon, TVXQ have the most number-one singles for a foreign artist, and is Japan’s best-selling foreign music act in CD singles of all time. Their Time Tour, one of the highest-grossing concert tours of 2013, is the highest-attended concert tour held by a foreign music act in Japan. With the tour, the duo became the first non-Japanese Asian artists to headline a nationwide five-Dome tour, and were the first foreign artists to perform in the Nissan Stadium. Billboard has described the group as "K-pop royalty”.
