Who’s Our BCM?

Our weekly Boy Crush Monday, HoYa, was born on March 28, 1991 in Busan. Ever since his youth, HoYa was a fanatic for the art of dance. He even dropped out of high school during his freshman year to pursue dancing, causing a drift between him and his father. He was a former JYP trainee, but ultimately found himself in Woollim Entertainment, where he debuted as the main dancer of INFINITE. All throughout, HoYa’s father had been unable to accept the fact that his son would disobey his parents’ wishes and chase after a “foolish dream”. However, after HoYa proved himself by hitting stardom as an artist, his father eventually accepted HoYa’s decision to follow his heart, and now fully supports HoYa as an INFINITE.

Why We Crush

We crush hard on this amazing human being, because of his will to drive head strong against any challenge that he may face. HoYa is what you call a quadruple threat – he dances, acts, and sings, while looking absolutely gorgeous. Not only did HoYa go on to become famous for his dancing skills, but he’s ventured into the acting industry by debuting through the hit drama, “Reply 1997”. In the drama, he earned the love of a nation through his charming and cute portrayal of a closet homosexual, who tries his best to conceal his feelings for his best friend. HoYa is also an amazing singer as he is a dancer. In order to broaden his horizon as a true artist, HoYa fine tuned his skills day after day to become an artist that can sing as he can dance. To top it all off, HoYa is just absolutely breathtakingly handsome. Can we get some standing ovation over here?

Where We’ve Seen Him

We’ve talked on and on about his dancing, but just how good is he? Well, you’ve probably seen him most recently as a competitor of the dance competition sensation, “Hit the Stage”. In this Mnet produced competition show, HoYa was placed as a mountain among mountains, where he was the main competitor to watch out for. After continuously receiving outstanding scores, he blew the audience away with his sexual rendition of “This Love” with one of his childhood friend, HyoJung. If you haven’t seen his performance yet, you gotta click below RIGHT NOW!

 

Where We’ll See Him Next

Yeah, we want more of HoYa too! And good news to us all, because INFINITE just returned with an all new album, “The Eye”. With a storyline as dramatic as the choreography, it’ll sure be a hit! As the leading dancer of the original KalGunMoo group, we can’t wait to see more of HoYa’s dancing and promotional activities.

 

He may be modest, but this mega-hunk has so much up his sleeve… and he’s good at ’em too!

See you for our next week’s coverage of BCM!

Rap Monster

(Kim NamJoon)

Who’s Our BCM?

Our boy crush Rap Monster was born on September 12, 1994 in Il-San, Korea. Before he became a global phenomenon as the leader and main rapper of BTS (BangTan Boys), he was an underground rapper, born as Kim NamJoon. During his underground days, he was active as Runch Randa. He recorded multiple mixtapes with Zico, and became a member of the underground hip hop group Daenamhyup. He was eventually recruited into Big Hit Entertainment, where he began training with the rest of the BTS members. On June 13, 2013, Rap Monster made his official debut as the leader of BTS.

Why We Crush

Rap Monster may have spent most of his time in the underground scene, but don’t you dare stereotype our boy crush idol. Rap Monster is always listed on the smart K-Pop idol charts. Growing up, Rap Monster achieved an 850 on his TOEIC during his junior high days. He was in the top 1.3% of the whole nation in the preparatory university entrance exams for language, math, foreign language and social studies. Our genius idol also has a high IQ of 148! Need actual proof of just how smart he is? Just check out how fluent he is in English! You’d mistake Rap Monster as an idol who grew up abroad, but he’s a born and raised Korean. Rap Monster basically self taught himself English to the point where he has no accent! Mad props to our Mr. Genius idol.

 

Where We’ve Seen Him

With such an intelligent mind, it makes sense just how talented our BCM would be. Rap Monster has always taken part in composing for BTS’s albums. With multiple hit tracks under his belt, there is no greater achievement than his very own official mixtape. In 2015, Rap Monster sent out his very own mixtape, where he created the album 100% by him. Rap Monster’s solo work is extensive, but his “Do You” has to be one of our favorite. His intelligent lyrics and sick beat just perfectly expresses the rapping sensation – Rap Monster.

 

Where We’ll See Him Next

All A.R.M.Ys should know by now – BTS is coming back with an all new album in a matter of weeks! Big Hit Entertainment has been dropping very interesting teasers for the boys’ comeback. Each member has their own teaser with their own story line. One thing that remains the same is Rap Monster’s English narration at the beginning (that sexy English!). While we anxiously wait for the return of our BTS boys, let’s fangirl over Rap Monster’s sick teaser for their new album, “WINGS”! 

 

It’s always a good day to be crushing on the mega-talented, mega-intellectual Rap Monster!

See you for our next week’s coverage of BCM!
