Ask Asian Junkie is back after an extended layoff due to this thing called a life … and laziness and apathy and putting it off to catch up on shit like “Homeland“.
Fucks given? Zero.
Okay bitch, I’m doing Ask Asian Junkie. Who are your favorite groups?
MOTHERFUCKER YOU AREN’T DOING ME A FAVOR
GET IT STRAIGHT
To be frank, I hate questions like these because I can never think of them all and it puts me on the spot. To make matters worse, revealing shit like this also gives out information on myself that allows people to link back to it and say dumb shit like, “OMG YOU ONLY SAY THAT BECAUSE YOU LIKE THEM OMG BIAS“, thus ignoring any logic I’ve included in the post.
But whatever, since a lot of you have been harassing me about this, I’ll give an answer.
S.E.S. – Yes yes, y’all, we like sex, y’all.
At least Eugene is still relevant.
Fin.K.L – Somehow, all of them ended up being hot.
They had catchy ass songs too.
Fly To The Sky – Always liked them, being straight be damned.
Jewelry – They suck now, but their previous members were awesome.
The most shocking part about them is that I remember they sounded great live.
Chun Sang Ji Hee – Criminally underrated. Will never forgive the Korean public for rendering them irrelevant.
All four were at least attractive, if not gorgeous, and their songs were catchy. They could all hold a note and they could all dance respectably.
SMAP – I don’t care about their music and the Japanese idol system is setup so that it doesn’t matter anyway. I like them because they’re hilarious on variety shows. That’s it. Also, Kimura Takuya stars in a lot of the Japanese dramas I enjoy, even if he always has to be a flawless protagonist.
Morning Musume – Not now, but before? Hell yeah. I would argue that they were more interesting in their prime than AKB48 ever could be. Zero to do with their music, everything to do with their variety shows and what not.
TVXQ/JYJ – In their separate groups only. Blasphemy, right? But I never really liked their music prior to the split. Now though, I think both of them are great in their own way.
I doubt we see idols like this come along for a while.
KARA – Brainless but catchy music. Members are cute and interesting.
SECRET – Would be better as a trio, but still awesome as a quartet.
Girl’s Day – They don’t make great music, but who cares? They’ve had their moments with catchy songs, and though I find some of their antics annoying, they are entertaining and attractive.
Block B – I guess this is mainly Zico related, but I do like their songs, at least in comparison to the rest of the crap out there.
A Pink – Throwback group. Can’t not like them.
SPICA – They’re talented, so of course they’re irrelevant in Korea. Sweet system, bros.
EXILE – ATSUSHI and friends are forever relevant.
Perfume – It’s difficult for me to dislike anything they do, honestly.
Arashi – Basically for the same reasoning as SMAP. Also, Matsumoto Jun is more attractive to straight men than like 75% of women. I said it.
AKB48 – Some of their songs are actually catchy, but their looks, personas, and shows are the main draw, honestly.
E-Girls – In a just world, they would be the top idol group in Japan, and one of the best in Asia. It is not a just world.
Yeah, I know they don’t consider themselves idols, but they’re in the vicinity.
SCANDAL – Different type of music from E-Girls, but the same conclusion for me.
That’s all I can think of for now.
Remember, these are only idol groups, not like actual artists.
I have nothing better to do, so send me your questions here: Ask Asian Junkie.
