My Taste in The Best Korean Boy Group of All Time

News via soompi.com

I know. This is probably the one that surprises you, it surprises me too. C-Clown is not a very well-known group, and if I am to be totally honest, I would not have chosen him if I had not met him and the rest of the group. I had a chance to interview them, and oh my goodness, they were so adorable. Not only that, Rome had all the staff crushing on him because he was really sweet and you could see how much effort he put into the leading the group. If you watch the interview, you can see him guiding the other members and making sure they’re all answering the questions. He’s also gotten pretty good looking, so good looking that I had to look up his age in hope that I wasn’t THAT much of a noona to him. Also, that Australian accent!

Runners Up: It really came down to him and Jinyoung from B1A4. I really like Jinyoung, and I think he’s a talented song writer and a good leader to the group. But when it came down to it, I decided to follow my eyes and picked Rome because I thought he was cuter. That’s it. Superficial, I know. Someone also suggest JB from GOT7. He’s cute too, but “Dream High 2” ruined him for me (that drama ruined a lot of things for me. I didn’t even finish it.).

5. The Baby (Maknae): This is probably the least official position, because while you need vocalists and a leader, you don’t really need someone to official be the youngest. However, as a noona I can see the baby of the group gets a lot of love and you do need someone in charge of aegyo. Also, a leader/maknae pairing can KILL fangirls.
