Block B

 

Block B debuted April 15, 2011.  They were produced by Cho PD and every member save for TaeIl was kicked out of the band before having to work their way back in.  That fact impressed me.  Each of these guys worked hard to get back into the band, which made me want to see what these guys could do.  Check out their discography here and check the MV Review section for their music videos and my randomness.

 

These guys are awesome!  Their debut song Freeze was amazing and they were HOT!  Still are.  I love me some crazy Zico as well as some cute P.O.  Redeim’s bias is JaeHyo, she still has it in for the pretty boys.  This band has just been over the top in their greatness.  They compose a lot of their own work and seem pretty self sufficient.  I also think it’s cool that Zico, the second youngest, got the leader position.  He actually fought for it, go Zico!  I am a HARDCORE Block B fan, so when they come out with something new, expect reviews!  Do you WANNA BE?  BLOCK B!!!!
