I love U-KISS so much except my bias groups I can’t even. Do not even keep on reading if you don’t like word ‘underrated’.
First of all, I blame myself for getting to know U-KISS by some misheard lyrics videos. But it’s also the blame of mass media - U-KISS is so underrated and it is not the last time I will say it today. My first song of that AWESOME group was Believe and I quickly got onto the next ones. Believe is still my jam. I’ll never get bored of it.
U-KISS is most probably so underrated because they have no boyish concepts, they’re real men - and what’s on top now is being all swaggy and/or cute (referring to BTS, EXO, Seventeen…I don’t say it’s bad, I like them too). But hello! U-KISS is one of the most hilarious groups (Weekly Idol, everyone) and they have some AMAZING vocals - Soohyun, Hoon, Kevin? Like, hear Soohyun hitting the high note, Quit Playing or Tick Tock if you want ro check. Shivers guaranteed. Also, Eli and AJ are great rappers, so was Dongho, that is, before he left. THEY DO DESERVE MORE RECOGNITION.
My bias has always been and will always be Hoon, whose voice makes me shiver. Every. Single. Time. His voice is always in my top k-pop voices. And just a bonus that to me he is TOO handsome. And how he laughed on Weekly Idol (XDD). LOVING EVERYTHING OF HIM.
I don’t even know what to write about their songs. U-KISS is the only group in the world which I love all songs of and each one could be my favourite. Believe, Tick Tock, Quit Playing, Playground, Neverland, Stop Girl, She’s Mine, Doradora, Standing Still…And all must-be-known hits, Bingeul Bingeul, Manmanhani, Dancing Floor (bit less known tho). And of course 0330 with the legendary line Don’t deny our r squared pi (I really need a T-shirt with that line). Just fist notes of Bingeul Bingeul make me dance, and Quit Playing is the first song ever I’ve created a choreography for. If you don’t know any U-KISS songs, you shoul definitely check them out.
Ignore the fact that U-KISS actually stands for Ubiquitous Korean Idol International Super Star. I’m waiting for their comeback more than for anything, now with Jun nearly becoming my bias (if I didn’t love Hoon so much). Do I wish for too much? If they do comeback, please give them a lot of support - they really deserve it. U-KISS’ dances (Neverland, everyone, it is known as one of the most complicated k-pop choreos), songs, members - all things are perfect. Why, then, are there so few Kiss Mes and other-fandom supporters?
I hope U-KISS will recieve recognition they deserve if they comeback (or even if they don’t!). Love to all Kiss Mes if there are any of them left, loyal to that fabulous group.
