You were a beautiful model. You wanted to get your name out there. And in your mind music videos and photoshoots were the best way to gain attention. And LIVE was one of your favorite rappers. You were very excited to hear he was having auditions for his new music video.
When asked about his inspiration for “Eyes, Nose, Lips,” Taeyang replied, “It’s a story based on my own life. There have been a lot of rumors that it’s a song about someone else, but it’s really a song that came out when I met Min Hyo Rin.”
G-Dragon jumped in to add that he (unintentionally) played the role of a matchmaker in their relationship. “When Taeyang was planning to film his music video, he was considering who should be his female co-star,” he said, referring to Taeyang’s video “1AM” which features Min Hyo Rin. “I suggested a friend of a friend because I thought they’d look good together, and it turned out that Taeyang already had her in mind.”
“I went to the music video set, and I saw that Taeyang was smiling from ear to ear, even though it’s a sad song,” he recounted, which made Taeyang laugh.
G-Dragon then cracked everyone up by reenacting a scene where Taeyang was supposed to be hugging Min Hyo Rin sadly, but G-Dragon spotted him grinning.
@ask-spiderpool has a spotify playlist, for you musical-minded folks out there! Some of the music from videos you’ve made, mixed up in a massive collection of cheesy tunes that are Wade and Pete’s musical journey. It won’t make you cry. (Although that isn’t a guarantee.)

Music production episode—Secret talk about producing music & special stage
What is your inspiration for composing music?
WW: Reading books, movies, dramas etc. becomes the hint for
writing lyrics and stage performances.
VN: It’s the trend. Because lyrics are the stories of this era.
Because (I) want to write lyrics that everyone can relate to, I often search up
on trends on the internet.
SC: You have to have a lot of imagination. Sketching out the
music video on your mind, and writing lyrics according to that scene. But the MV that I always think about is always totally different from the actual MV. (laughs)
Q: How did you all create the concept for the choreography?
HS: After listening to the music, we will first hold a concept
meeting within the unit. We considered concepts like should we be good
students, should we be bad students. From then, I will search for items that
complies with this concept, and after that, it’s the time to start making the
choreography. Then, we will gather everyone one by one, and make changes to the
choreography that we already have.
MG: In the instance of PRETTY U, we rewatched “High School
Musical” while preparing for the choreography. We were really concerned about
how should we do it to make it fun and overflowing with energy on the stage.
WW: This time’s use of books in our performance is also a point,
because it’s the first time we used small props, we couldn’t really imagine it
happening…. We are a bit worried because of that.
Why is it that if you hear a pop song like “I Kissed A Girl” more than two or three times, you feel like you’re going insane…
…but when you play an old video game you can listen to the music for hours? The brain does weird things in response to repetition. As you’ll hear in the episode, a UCSD professor found that if you hear a repeating loop of almost any series of spoken words, your mind will begin to hear that input as music.
THIS WEEK:Jack O'Brien is joined by Cracked editors Dan O'Brien and Alex Schmidt to discuss how the human mind seeks out repetition, turns that repetition into music, and how video games have turned this science into an unsung art form.
Shinee reaction to you (gf) liking EXO more than their music
Onew would be a little sad about it but he wouldn’t try to change your mind because he knows that liking them more is your decision after all.
Jonghyun gets kinda jealous easily so we would try to make you change your mind by pointing out every detail n the SHINee music videos and wouldn’t stop until you admit that your boyfriend is the best.
Key wouldnt say anything he would just stare. *silent treatment*
Minho would be jeaous OF COURSE because our Choi Namja always want’s to be #1!! So he would try everything out in order to make you like them (and him) more.
