Cross Gene Member Profile
Instead of going on as a five member group, a new member was unveiled through a special interview. The new member is Korean and called Lee Seyoung. He was born on February 8th, 1990. Seyoung was revealed to be a vocalist who is recognizable because of his husky voice. Aside from singing, he is also interested and talented in songwriting, focusing on both lyrics and composition.
As earlier revealed, CROSS GENE consists out of three Korean members, two Chinese members and a Japanese member. With two Korean members (ShinYongseok), a Japanese member (Takuya) and a Chinese member revealed, it's now waiting for the next two members' concept pictures to be unveiled.
More details on CROSS GENE's debut haven't been revealed yet but it is to be expected they'll debut near the end of May or early next month. They were earlier revealed as Project-A, a six member project group by Amuse Japan, under their Korean division.
Yongseok was earlier mentioned as his name was already revealed through the full line-up picture and their official website but a concept picture featuring the member wasn't revealed up until earlier today. Though more information about Yongseok hasn't been revealed, fans have been able to figure out that he was born on January 8th, 1993; making him the second youngest member of the line-up.
The newly revealed member will be joining Takuya, Shin, Sangmin, J.G and Casper. Two of which, Takuya and Shin, have already had their own concept pictures revealed earlier this week.
CROSS GENE was also revealed to have a line-up consisting out of three Korean members, two Chinese members and one Japanese member; further explaining their group name to be a "crossing of various genes."
As mentioned in the previous CROSS GENE article, Shin is actually a young actor called Shin Wonho. He's starred in "Bachelor's Vegetable Store" and will be featured in the upcoming drama "Big", next to miss A's Suzy. Together with Takuya, he was also in a Japanese short movie called RUN60. The movie will be getting its full drama spin-off later this year as nine episodes are set to air. Shin was born on October 23th, 1991; making him the second oldest of the rumored line-up.
Earlier this year CROSS GENE was revealed as a project group between Japan and Korea called Project-A, but it seems they're finally set on debuting soon under Amuse Korea. More details on their debut, release and members are expected to be revealed soon.
Though only one member has been officially revealed, fans have been able to match the earlier released project group picture with the newly revealed CROSS GENE concept picture. The new group consists of six members called Shin ('91), Sangmin ('92), Yongseok ('93), J.G ('93), Casper ('91) and Japanese member Terada Takuya ('92). The group makes for an interesting line-up as various members have already appeared in the media before.
Japanese member Terada Takuya, for instance, will be featured in the movie "Ai Ore" with The Boss's Karam. He also guested in various episodes of the Korean variety show "Dream Team" and has been revealed to be a big fan of Korean girl groups such as miss A and Girls' Generation. He was born on March 18th, 1992; is 187cm tall and also active as a model and actor in Japan.
Member Shin, whose full name is Shin Wonho, was born on October 23th, 1991 and stands at a tall 185cm. He is a young actor who also starred as one of the six main bachelors in "Bachelor's Vegetable Store" and will be appearing in the upcoming series, "Big", next to miss A's Suzy. Shin was also featured in a CF for clothing brand Bean Pole together with Big Bang's G-Dragon, as well as adverts for KT olleh and Skinfood.
With one of thesefantastic concept, the sole fault in this music video lies in the pacing. About a minute of the video is spent with Cross Genes preparation ahead of they sprint off to save their noona. Plenty of close ups, face touching, grimaces, and slow movement running is used to reach the effect of cool. However, Cross Genes attempts to seem charismatic fall at the line of not being relatively ridiculous sufficient to be funny, but still too exaggerated to be regarded as purely attractive. While there is a minimum of a minute of those cool scenes, there is little shown of the truecourting between the noona and dongsaensg, which would have explained their motivation in saving her.
Whether or not she was inquisitive about them romantically is unknown, nor is the intensityin their relationship. All this is known is they were not stalking her, which is a step up from many music videos. The maximum telling scene is in the music breakdown with Shins dream sequence, where he provides noona his jacket, and she ruffles his hair affectionately.
The two disparate ideas between what Cross Gene believes to be true and what is in truth truthful is what makes the music video so intriguing, and simultaneously so disappointing. If more time was spent coming up the characters of the ladsor maybea couple ofadditional scenes with noona, the music video would were more entire equally a story. The storyline of a noona and her dongsaeng with differing ideas of their relationship is infinitely more fascinating than looking at the dongsaengs lost in a fable of intended strength and masculinity.
Although the SM Entertainment artist has been moderatelydebatable after her departure from her workforce and a cryptic Instagram post, netizens can all agree that her visuals are still as impressive as ever.
