Exo Notes, November

(Crossposted from Tumblr.)

I had no intention of writing another one of these until they came back, but someone asked about it on Formspring, and one thing led to another and…here I am.

This is going to be less on performance observations and more on personality ones, for self-explanatory reasons (*coughMamaDIAFcough*).

Current K-pop #8: U-Kiss, DBSK

The first one of these I ever did was on MBLAQ and DBSK (when “Keep Your Head Down” came out), and I opened with, “One I love, one I love to hate (or just kind of…hate).” Still perfectly apt two years later.

Short-haired Sulli

…is gorgeous Sulli.

It’s such a pain being a fan of girl groups, especially groups that have an off-kilter fanbase. I’ve been trying to find HQ scans of Sulli in her shoot with Minho and all I got were these, from one of Sulli’s biggest fansites (the biggest?). I stalked her tag on Tumblr for days (in fandom time, that’s years) but these are still the best I have. And of course, I was bombarded with HQs of Minho’s parts before I even saw a cellphone shot of Sulli’s pages.

Sulli has a great face shape and I’ve been telepathically willing her to cut her hair since she started growing it out during NU ABO. Her hair and her really blunt bangs don’t suit her and weigh her face down. She’s got a face that’s meant to be opened up, not framed in. She has really great features — nose, lips, jaw — that all get so bogged down and lost when something that essentially resembles a long, shaggy mop is draped over her head. I also have a personal pet peeve with girls who adamantly refuse to cut their long hair EVER (looking at you, Victoria and Sohee), so I’m so glad it’s finally been cut.

I’m now also stupid excited to watch To the Beautiful You because I re-watched Sulli in Punch Lady and I had forgotten how much I like her as an actress. She is an awful performer and should have never debuted as an idol, but what can you do? I’ll suffer quietly (or bitch about it on Twitter all the time, whatever) about Minho, but Sulli…! ♡
