Nu Establish Style Tempo

It occurred to me while listening to Love Paint, that the reason we have such difficulty classifying what type of song Overcome is….(is it a ballad? No…theres a hard beat there…is it just r&b? Yes but no…) is because our boys have done it.

They are living up to their name and established their very own, uniquely Nu'est style that defies classification. Whether they win or not, they’ve won because they finally have a hand in what theyre writing and producing. Everyone contributed something somewhere. Baekho and Min with writing, JR with raps, Aron with some styling and writing, and Ren helping with art direction. They’ve reinvented themselves with every comeback, but now is their time to show the world who they are…and its vivid, artistic, and beautiful.

They did it. I’m so proud I have goosebumps.

New Establish Style Tempo.

The cutest Baekho macro. I’m sorry I made it out for myself, but like….he’s my second ultimate bias and no one’s been requesting a lot, sooooo. I needed this ;A;A;A;A;A;A;A;A; this is the show it comes from. I already went past the scene and noticed someone put up the pic. My instant thought: MACRO-NIZE IT NOW. ISN’T HE JUST PRECIOUS ;A;

The reason why I say hyung is because I’m slightly older than him, surprisingly (I doubt he’s 9 days younger than me, like that’s some bull)♥
