    I didn’t manage to like DB5K for very long before they broke up (about half a year), but 3~4 years after the split, they’re still my ultimate bias group. At this point, I’m not sure if my inability to replace DB5K is because they’re so amazing that they really are irreplaceable, or if it’s because my mind has subconsciously created a perfect-DB5K that never really existed but seems to have existed according to my fond but warped and idealized memories of them.

    Anyway, ever since the whole Changtoria spoon scandal, I’ve started to wonder: What if Changmin and Victoria really ARE dating? Doesn’t that make me the pathetic, obsessively clingy, usually hateful second lead of some Korean drama? I guess that’s my cue to push Changmin out of this Kpop closet. So while I don’t think I can ever push out DB5K-the-group from my Kpop biases, the individual members themselves are leaving one by one…

      I love you just for coming up with “Changtoria spoon scandal.”

      • Mika_San123

        LOLOL What? Are you sure I came up with it? I just put together “Changtoria” and “spoon scandal”…

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nate-Broadus/100003245734823 Nate Broadus

          All it takes is stitching them together in one fluid title. Different people invented the terms “open”, “can”, and “whoop ass”, but stitching them together (“open up a can of whoop ass”) is where the magic is made.

          • Mika_San123

            Haha, well I was sure I had heard someone else say “Changtoria spoon scandal” somewhere (but I don’t quite remember exactly where) so I don’t really want to take credit for this – but nevertheless, thank you!

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nate-Broadus/100003245734823 Nate Broadus

            Well, whoever came up with it, I am just crapping golden bricks that it exists in the world now.

    Sunggyu has now taken over 3rd place on my Infinite bias list. I don’t even know how he got there – didn’t really warm to his solo efforts (Shine was an okay song, rest of them I could leave) and that hair, sorry to say, did not rock my world. It’s so weird for me that my issues with Sunggyu have always been hair-based. Hated his hair pre-debut, barely like 90% of his hairstyles and/or colors. I like it best when it’s just a plain cut in black. I love when he looks like a Korean boy next door, for lack of a better term. Anyhow, yeah, he’s now 3rd place and if Hoya keeps on being unable to do aegyo, he might just take over the 2nd spot.

    I don’t have enough biases to warrant a cleaning, but that might change soon, since I’m starting to get interested in more and more idols. Case in point: BtoB’s Peniel. Those vlogs of his are too adorable for words. I just want to pinch his cheeks. A Pink’s Chorong is also soooo compelling, somehow, and I totally ship her with Sunggyu. I want them to get together and compare notes on being leaders of 7-member bands and their atrocious driving skills. Yeah, weird, I know, but I dig it.

    If I had a bias list, SNSD, as a whole, would be plummeting off of it like a 4-year-old doing a cannonball in the deep end of the pool. Take that as an insult if you choose (though that is not how it is intended). It seems as if they are trying to do something new (whatever the hell IGAB was supposed to be), but are still holding tightly to what they always were (aegyo).

    Don’t waffle; if you’re going to do something, go for the friggin gold.

    Having said that, I won’t elaborate any further because, frankly, that isn’t what this thread is about.

    I guess I’m a creature of habit, because the list of Kpop performers I follow is relatively small and has not changed in a good while.

    On the OC front, Nana is still squarely at the top, though I will admit that Raina has had something of an impression on me recently. I can’t even begin to figure out why. Liken it to one of those instances where someone you didn’t notice before suddenly just pops up and you’re all like, “Where the hell did you come from?” And they’re all like, “What do you mean, I was ALWAYS here.” Then you’re all like, “Well I’ll be a monkey’s one-eyed, peg-legged, whiskey-swigging uncle — I guess I just didn’t notice. My bad.” Lizzy is still Lizzy — somewhat bizarre, goofy, and perhaps because of that, is still endearing as hell.

    The whole of Sistar is still high up on the list. That MAY be due to the fact that they are, arguably, the foxiest group in all of Kpop… But what am I going to do? Pretend that doesn’t factor into my decision? Hot? Hyorin, Bora, Soyou and Dasom could melt your jewelry to your skin.

    Yes! Jung Ryeo Won and Kim Woo Bin are awesome. Jung Ryeo Won in particular was so badass and hilarious in History of The Salaryman! :D
    Infinite is still up there on my list of favourites. :)

  • ajj

    Kyuhyun and TOP and DBSK(well cant choose between the two) remains in my top 3, not sure who’s no.1 depends on the day. Being a new Hottest I’m puttingTaec in my closet, Chansung almost made it but my sister claimed him for herself so the maknae is hers but I decided to share Junho with her. I’m still figuring out who to pick Onew or Key and Baro or Cnu, I was so sure about Onew and Baro last month but now I’m not becasue of those two. Amber my eternal favorite idol girl is still there and Sulli keeping her company because she’s just too cute.And goodness I made the right decision to pick Kim Ji Hoon the neighborhood ahjussi out of all the Flower boys. Last but not the least Jo In Sung he is so back in my closet.He was my teen crush/ the love of my life, gosh the feelings are totally back.

    I will never change mi ultimate kpop bias, SNSD Taeyeon, for that I´ll remain a sone forever, and I´m listening to more j-pop now. Also, Park Hyo Shin, Kim Bum Soo and 4men are unbeatable, so that will never change. But I´m starting to like SHINee and TVXQ more than Super Junior and MBLAQ so, that would be a change.

  • cecedee

    As weird as it sounds, it’s so rare for me to change biases (and it took a long time for me to decide who my biases are). But when I change biases, it usually happen with girl groups. Eunhyuk’s still my bias in Super Junior (it’s just hard to shake him off my list since Donghae is my 2nd bias and EunHae cray shipper or not, you just got to love these two kids together. Especially when they’re leeching off Siwon), Junsu’s still my bias in DB5K/JYJ, Onew’s still my no.1 in SHINee, and I still haven’t decide who is my bias in EXO : Suho, Sehun, or Baekhyun.

    Recently I change my f(x) bias from Victoria to Amber, all because of SMTown Singapore, and Amber solidified her place because of her playful tweets recently. Although Jia has always been my bias in Miss A, I always change my bias in SNSD almost everytime they promote a new album. IGAB had Yuri got my SNSD bias spot (Hyoyeon was my bias when they promote The Boys), and the last time she’s on top of my list was when they promote Run Devil Run. And I keep changing Hyorin, Bora, and Soyu as my bias in Sistar idk why either.
    Also, is there a actor-bias?If there is, I’m changing Lee Seunggi for Song Joongki. (Although Jo Insung is creeping behind Joongki right now, thanks to TWTWB).

    • shannie4888

      Agree with the actor bias perfectly. I like a few actors but Jo In Sung is shitting on everybody because of TWTWB. He’s that good looking, that awesome, and that talented. I think I love that man…LOL.

      According to some juicy tidbits on the net, he’s into guys……….don’t know if it’s true though. But go figure, the perfect ones are always gay or married….LOL. All I can say is that whoever is getting some of that is lucky. He’s fine as hell and his skin looks like milk and seems like it’s be as creamy as butter……..perfection.

      • cecedee

        Well,I never think much about the preference of an idol/actor I like. It didn’t even stop me fawning over Matt Bomer :D If anything, it reduces a slight hope that Jo Insung and Song Hyekyo can date, get married, and have pretty babies :P I’m kinda shipping this couple since they look so freakin good together. Sorry for my highly fangirl-ish imagination lol. But that is still a rumour so I think I’m just going to continue shipping them together haha

        • shannie4888

          Matt Bomer is so gorgeous. It doesn’t bother me at all if an actor is gay or not. If I love you, I love you and that’s it. It’s not like I have a shot in hell anyway…….LOL.

          As for Jo In Sung, the info came from a pretty good source, so I think it’s most likely true…..but I love him to bits and pieces, so whether he’s gay, straight, or in between doesn’t bother me one bit. As long as he keeps looking fine and acting good, my heart will always skip a beat for him.

          As for him and SHK together as a couple, they’d be too goodlooking. It’d be a crime against humanity……LOL. Apart from the gay rumors, I don’t think it’ll likely happen because apparently Song Hye Kyo healed her broken heart and moved on from Hyun Bin to a new man. She’s rumored to be dating the actor Kong Dong Won. Song Hye Gyo can actually get any guy and she gets the best of them. Only top actors for a gorgeous girl like her.

          • cecedee

            Matt Bomer is so fiiiineee and he’s a good actor too :D Yeah true, it’s not like he’s one of my to-be-husband nominee or something haha. Lol yes they would be a veeeeery good looking couple it’s a crime against humanity XD Kang Dong Won?really?woah girl, you and I need to talk and gossip because I love kpop dating rumors haha

  • shannie4888

    I love BEAST, but if they don’t come back soon, I’m shoving them in the back of the damn closet. They were my introduction to Kpop via late 2010, so it’s hard to say that because they were my first Kpop love.

    Besides that, I hardly ever really change my favorite idols though, so everyone I listen to is pretty much in the same position. There were some other changes though. SNSD did fall down several slots after IGAB because that shit was a hot ass mess. They need to loosen up on the aegyo and just be powerful and sexy. They’re too old to constantly be doing that sh*t.

    TVXQ and Big Bang remain stable, even though Big Bang has been releasing better Kpop music that DBSK. But at least DBSK have some great Jpop songs to make up for the mediocrity of “Catch Me” and “Humanoid.” Although, I should probably check out their newest release before I state that.

    Inifinite, I’m really loving. I like their constant comebacks and solo/duo activities. Moreover, I absolutely LOVED Hoya in Answer Me 1997. His character was my favorite. I’ve always liked L. I just love his eyes. Wooyoung is really good looking to me and his voice is amazing. Infinite has been doing good things to me and I love them for it. They’ve definitely climbed up the list.

    • ajj

      Hey check out TVXQ’s In Our Time…I super love it.

  • http://twitter.com/Annyeongitsjess Jessica Cottle

    Jaejoong/JYJ have been my ultimate biases for 4 years now and I doubt that’s going to change any time soon considering they’re prepping for what seems like a MASSIVE comeback.

    One group that has been creeping up my bias list is Secret. The Wonder Girls haven’t really come out with anything so I started looking around for another girl group to jam to and BAM! there’s Secret. I don’t have a bias in the group yet, but Sunhwa on WGM is hilarious so we’ll see where that goes.

    Infinite was a group I started following around the time of their debut but I sort of lost interest after a couple months. With Sunggyu’s solo adventure and Infinite-H’s debut, I’ve regained that interest. Those adorable, talented babies~

  • VLF218

    It’s so had to let go of biases TT_TT but I think it’s about time to let go of 2PM. They were the second boy group I got into after Big Bang but idk they just aren’t doing it for me anymore. I’ve been thinking about it for some time now and they’ve been gone for so long and it’s hard to keep their bias flame burning. I’m going to wait till they make a comeback (whenever that will be) and decide for sure then. Ah this hurts so much to say…

  • http://twitter.com/lillian23910 Sharon

    I have to put Wonder Girls away bc I am sure their not going to release anything as a group for a while. So I welcome crayon pop, D-Unit and GLAM into my heart.

  • http://twitter.com/PlumAusten Plum Austen

    Shinee went down in my most favorite list. My favorites in descending order:

    Women:
    Yoon Mi Rae (still the boss)
    Ailee
    Brown Eyed Girls
    Orange Caramel (very addictive, and they always seem to be having fun)

    Men:
    U-Kiss
    Shinee, Block B
    Infinite and H, Nu’est, and VIXX ( though vampires are played out and I like zombies better :-)
    B1A4 (so cute, talented, try so hard)
    Jay Park and Crazyno (they are both so funny and crazy, right in my wheelhouse)

  • Skittles

    G-Dragon has successfully maintained his number one claim on my heart. Good work Gd, here, have a cookie. <3
    Last year also marked the year I officially became a noona fan (All blame goes on Zelo and his adorbaleness)
    And the only real change was Leeteuk being replaced by Donghae, a general disenchantment with Batoost, and finally, FINALLY, letting go of Rain. (*cries*).
    Oh and Johnelle, I can never let go of Kim Hyun Joong. There's a Shisedo store near where I live and I literally go there just to stare at his beautiful face.

  • hapacalgirl

    If I get into my kdrama list this post won’t end so I will keep this strictly to kpop. Shinhwa is still on top of mines and that will never change. Jaejoong, Verbal Jint, and Big Bang are still there as well. I have always been a fan of Seo In Guk but his current releases and his stint on Reply 1997 has forced me to add him to the rarely changing bias list. 2ne1/BEG/WG/Secret still remain as staples. I now want to add D-unit to the mix along with NS Yoon G, Ailee, Block B, and BAP and if there debut song is any indication, I won’t be surprised if I eventually add Ladies Code to the mix.

  • http://twitter.com/badmarkz Alfia Rahmawati

    vixx! not more than a month ago they’re still absolute nugu for me but now, BAM! i just can’t get enough of their antics on their vixx tv. and leo, blessed him for all his shyness… i still wonder how could he even stayed this long in the industry and manage to maintain the cool/chic guy image very firmly.

  • SurpriseSurprise

    I am surprised how fickle most of you are. I’ve always thought bias love lasts longer than two bad haircuts or a bad comeback.

    It’s natural to have preferences change over time but I am surprised at the (short) longlivity of biadom and mostly trivial reasons behind banning an idol from your closet.

    My interests in Kpop/Kdrama haven’t changed a lot over the last couple of years. Surely, momentarily the group I’m the most invested in, MBLAQ, is collectivelly absent from the world of Kpop, members mainly pursuing solo activities but the boys are still hot water in my kettle waiting to boil again.

    I might have made a few additions over time and become less interested in others but on a marginal scale.

    But then again, what do I know? I don’t even have a bias!

  • leesigh3

    I don’t really understand removing Suzy and adding Dasom. Isn’t Dasom just kind of a poor man’s Suzy? Or was she vocally talented but overshadowed by Hyorin?

  • leesigh3

    Also, considering how popular YG is in Korea, how is it possible that no artists from YG make this list (whether being added to or removed from a closet)? It’s not like 2012 was a down year…

  • goldengluvsk2

    ohh Fannie.. i’m with you… there has been some major bias additions in the k-drama department for me -like half the cast of School 2013- but Kim ji hoon is the most valuable of them he’s just too adorable!! like so cute when he smiles I couldnt help but smile back like a fool. at the same time he has that manly/sexy appeal too that I was like: “he’d totally pull off sexy photoshoots” and our best friend “Google” confirmed it!! that Calvin Klein photoshoot left me hiperventilating xDD I just watched “stars are falling from the sky” he did a great job in that drama too and I’m officially a fan!

  • saroj khan

    my list is still the same.top list taken by tasha and jay.no one has even come close.kinda sad.new to the list is rome-just cause he reminds me so much of jay.

  • http://twitter.com/ErikinaDaisy Erikina•에리카

    God it’s so crazy how much can change in a year!

    Last year I was pretty much only into Big Bang, SHINee and Super Junior, and the occasional random bias (Yoseob, IU and Tablo) So much has changed. I can proudly say I’ve added on all of Infinite babies into my bias list. Don’t know how they did it, but after watching countless dance performances and variety shows, it was Ranking King that sealed it for me. That and Sungjong is a rare creature indeed. And Infinite-H and Sunggyu’s solo just did it for me. Too perfect! This group is definitely raising in the ranks!

    Besides them I can add in Zico and Kyung from Block B. I put shame onto ANYONE who has not had the chance of witnessing Zico’s serious GODLIKE talent. I mean I’m a open and proud G-Dragon fan and never thought I’d find ANYONE who could match his talent and swag and there comes Zico with his lip-smacking hypnotic rapping, emotional and memerizing singing, crazy zanyness AND the fact taht he cant impromtu rap and write and produce songs like nothing! So talented! Kyung had me at his weird teaser shake and bake dance. Too bad Block B is on strike or whatever when I just get into them. Seriously Nillili Mambo is like my top jamming song!

    I also want to add in ALL of B.A.P, Eunkwang and Ilhoon of BtoB, Ailee and Sistar.
    B.A.P is just too awesome. I mean you get like LITERAL chills when you watch them perform. From the moment of their debut when I heard that they died their hair all blonde so to minimize favourtism i was like SAY WHAAT! I like that they mean business and are set out to up the bar in Kpop. I think they’ll go extremely far and they are seriously THE hardest working group I’ve seen! I mean it been like 1 years and they’ve had like eight or something comebacks!?!? So crazy! Definitely warriors out to grab attention!

    BtoB did it for me with WOW. I just love the dancing. Eunkwang’s little jumps and ego charisma is just awesome. Plus the voice! What sealed it was Ilhoon’s aegyo cutie player that took over EVERYTHING. Seriously, I’m a HUG fan of cute people (especially maknaes) and that was teh CUTEST thing EVERRR! And I love that it caught on. Made me a fan of him. He’s adorable and has a lot of swag for a ’94 line. Plus, BtoB’s “Irresistible Lips” is one of my top 10 Kpop songs!

    Ailee and Sistar! I’m a huge fan of good vocals. Prob explains why I like people like Sunggyu, Yesung, Kyuhyun, Yoseob, Daehyun etc. Ailee is just KILLER. I love her voice, her style, her charm, and her personality. Really a sweetie! Sistar just climbed big this year! Loving U is STILL my ringtone. I don’t talk about girl groups that much. Although I say I’m a new fan of Sistar, I kind of make it a thing to be a fan of all girl groups, I’m just more picky on guy groups. That’s why I can say that besides Sistar I’m still rooting for SNSD, Miss A, 2NE1 etc (And recently Ladies Code’s debut has caught my eye)

    So all in all, no one to really through out.. though I’ve been less into SHINee than I’d like to be… must hope on that train before it goes out of sigh!

    Oh, and Kim Heechul (ergo SJ) still reigns the glorious Kpop world in my mind, even doing service. Can’t wait for his return! I really can’t see myself ever leaving Super Junior behind. I was bitten hard by that bug <3
