DBSK Nostalgia: Five Memorable Performances

News via soompi.com

Mirotic Comeback Stage Fans waited about 2 years for the group’s comeback and it was through “Mirotic” that they came back with a BANG! This performance was their comeback performance and it instantly became a huge hit. With their sexy image, charismatic dance, captivating vocals, and powerful lyrics, their “Mirotic” performance definitely has to be memorable, even more so because fans waited so long for their return.

 “Love in the Ice” Comeback Stage There are so many breath-taking performances of DBSK performing “Love in the Ice,” both in Korean and in Japanese. This performance was most memorable because it was part of their long awaited Korean comeback in 2008. Fans were even more excited for this song itself because they originally released it as a Japanese track, but for their comeback, they released a Korean version. This performance not only shows the group’s strong and powerful vocals, but their harmony as a group and how with five voices singing as one, they can touch the hearts of their fans.

“Proud” at their 2007 “Five in the Black” Concert When you search “DBSK crying” or “DBSK Proud” on YouTube, this performance is one of the top results. When DBSK fans see this performance, I think they have all shed a tear at least once because it is truly a sincere and honest performance. “Proud” itself is such a beautiful song, but all the emotions shown in this performance makes a huge difference. Some fans believe that the group was emotional because it was the end encore song of their Japan concert and also a high point in their Japanese success. No one really knows their exact reasons for crying, but it shows such a sensitive, vulnerable side of the group. DBSK, as individuals are all human too. It really shows how if one member is hurting, it really does affect the whole team. As a fan, you can see how they all become emotional, looking at one another and exchanging glances to try and comfort one another in the slightest way. What made DBSK the “gods of Asia” was not only their talent, but their passion. Many fans still wait for the day that the five of them will come back reunited as one team. No one really knows, but until that day comes, “always keep the faith…”

There's a Little "Something" Wrong with DBSK's New MV

News via seoulbeats.com

The Hallyu Wave has brought a lot of good for the K-pop fandom, but it’s also highlighted some of the problems of glorifying whiteness that is all too common in most popular media. DBSK is not the only offender when it comes to this, but they are the most recent. This is not to say that womenwhite or otherwiseshouldn’t be included in music videos (though there is something to be said about women being used as a status symbol at all, but that’s a topic for another day). The problem is that K-pop is giving minorities the same treatment as many mainstream media outlets already are. They’ll rap, travel and sing in your countryheck, they’ll even sport a bindi, but all that does is reduce entire groups of people to a superficial fad. If K-pop really wants to appear more open, they can start by letting more people in.
