MBLAQ

 

 

MBLAQ1

Summary: MBLAQ debuted on October 9, 2009 with their song “Oh Yeah.”  The group consists of five members: SeungHo, G.O., Joon, ChunDoong (Thunder), and Mir.  They quickly became popular; mostly thanks to Joon’s previous acting experience and the fact ChunDoong was related to 2NE1’s Sandara Park. On December 16, 2014, it was announced Joon and ChunDoong would be departing from the group to focus on solo activities.

 

It’d be easy to say we instantly fell in love with MBLAQ, especially since they’re one of the “special place in hearts” bands who debuted while we were in Korea.  Velexa was the first to discover them, as she was sick with swine flu and had nothing better to do but watch television.  She instantly pinned Joon as the “slut,” and it was before he pulled his shirt up.  We’ve since fallen in love with the “idiot-dols” as they’re so passionately called in Korea.  While we do have a Joon bias, we love the other members too, though at first we didn’t like the Mexican G.O. They’re one of the bands that have won our heart so much we even love their Japanese songs, which is rare for us as we aren’t really into Japanese music anymore.
