“The most unlikeliest idols in this world!”
This was what I (the reporter, not me) felt after watching SBS Family Outing variety. Could it be I am getting on or not knowing Big Bang well enough? But I never thought that Big Bang would have a member like this.
What I meant was having a wide range of emotions, friendly, kind-hearted “ultimate idols”. Ye Eun of the Wonder Girls is the same. They are not “fake” and extremely candid. They don’t act cool but are very straightforward.
That’s why both Dae Sung and Ye Eun are in the upper echelons of our “ultimate idols” ranking and are our focal point this week.
The biggest reason behind idol groups ending up being boring is because of the “idol groups = good looking guys/girls”. As these young boys and girls look and pose for the cameras, seemingly asking, “Am I pretty?”, your curiosity and concern just ebbs away. These idol groups look extremely unnatural as their bold and mysterious actions aren’t befitting of their age.
Dae Sung and Ye Eun are however direct opposites. Even though they might look plain compared to others in their group, but they are able to display the energy and personality that a 20 year old youth should have. Dae Sung singing his trot song “Look At Me, Gwi-soon” and Ye Eun’s candid personality onstage and offstage. Whenever we see them, confidence just ebbs out from them.
