Man Crush Mondays

Kim Hanbin

Our first Man Crush Monday of 2016 is none other than the leader of iKON, Kim Hanbin. With his undeniable charisma on and off the stage, it’s easy to see why he would be anyone’s crush!



And as a bonus, below is an adorable tumblr gif of cutie, Han Bin.



Our Man Crush Monday this week is Xia, who just recently released his new album “Flower”! I have always enjoyed listening to Xia’s voice, and I’m glad he’s still able to do well with his talent despite all the restrictions being put on him, as well as the rest of JYJ. We have a review coming for “Flower” soon, so keep an eye out for it!

James Jirayu Tangsrisuk

Starting off the new year with much loved Thai actor James Jirayu as our Man Crush Monday! I decided that if we want change for our blog, then we need to make ourselves step out of KPOP every once in awhile. Besides, I do enjoy watching some Thai dramas every now and then too. It’s a refresher from all the K-Drama that I watch (which there haven’t been too many of recently).

To be honest though, James Jirayu has been a man crush candidate before, but I never got around to posting one for him. Also, he’s kind of an exception to “stepping out of KPOP” since he did sing a song composed by 4Minute’s Jiyoon, AND he sung it in Korean. You can check it out below. I have yet to watch any of his dramas, but his beautiful smile definitely has me captivated.

살비 (SAL-V)

This week’s Man Crush Monday comes from Darice, continuing our support for a fellow Minnesotan, SALVMaknae. He has a musical talent that we admire, and with further nurturing and exploration, he can only get better. Also, since it’s a collaboration video, we have to give a shout out to DioCMusic as well! Another YouTuber on our list to watch out for! For a song that was unique to start off with, check out SALVMaknae and DioCMusic’s rendition of GDxTAEYANG’s Good Boy!

Park Jin Young

With his wonderful gift of 하지하지마 (Stop, Stop It) to GOT7, our Man Crush Monday this week is the ever-talented producer, and artist himself, Park Jin Young! We thoroughly enjoy his humorous personality! Catch him on the currently airing, and much loved survival audition program, KPOP Star, Season 4!


Darice just came back from the 2PM concert in Chicago yesterday, and she must still be feeling the hype because our Man Crush Monday this week is Chansung! I don’t fan-girl over 2PM, but I listen to their songs and watch them on shows often enough to be updated on them, and I am starting to regret not going…

Seo Kang Jun

This week’s Man Crush Monday is pretty boy, Seo Kang Jun, whom we’ve gotten to know through Roommate! When he first appeared, he got my attention. I have yet to watch his dramas, but I’m sure time will bring me to one eventually. I am definitely anticipating their debut, and I just have to say that they’re doing it right by listing their first tour as “Asia Tour” and not “World Tour”. Asia isn’t the only existence of the world (*ahem* YG *ahem*).

And one more thing; to that actor who said he didn’t like idols turned actors, 5urprise started out in acting first. I know Choi Min Soo kind of patched up his wording by saying that the one member should be glad that he met him first as an actor, but that whole situation was just wrong. I am disappointed in this veteran actor. I’ll discuss more in our upcoming Spontaneous Saturday next week. Getting away from this negativity, here’s to wishing Seo Kang Jun and the rest of 5urprise good luck! You can expect a review from us on their debut!

Jo Kwon

To celebrate 2AM’s comeback, leader Jo Kwon is our Man Crush Monday this week! Need I remind you that I don’t particularly listen to ballads? However, I never fail to listen to any 2AM songs because they are just that good. 2AM 화이팅! It feels so good to hear their songs again!
