Boyfriend has debuted in 2011 with a first single „Boyfriend“, the new boy band of Starship Entertainment was certainly awaiting. They made directly a good debut but it’s mostly with their second single „You&I“ that they attracted more attention. Through all their releases, you can see a real evolution of the band musically and personally. The 6 talented members need to show that they are worth it and they are succeeding more and more. That’s why Japako Music decided to follow them and support them. In Europe, they can certainly have a lot of success. They are already a bit known overseas but in Europe, we don’t hear from them that much. Let’s start to spread the word then and talk about Boyfriend all around Europe.
After the releases of their three first singles in 2011, „Boyfriend“, „I’ll be there“ and „Don’t touch my girl“, they did a first mini album „Love style“ which they released in June 2012. They then worked hard to release a full length album in November 2012 and surprised everyone with their hit song „Janus“ and the old school military spirit you can see in the music video. They definitely worked a lot as all the other k-pop bands in Korea and gave us a lot of materials to get to know their talents. And we can say for sure that they have something special that we really like that’s why we really believe in them and hope only for the best for Boyfriend in the future.
Now let’s present the members a bit, we first have the leader Donghyun, he is also the lead vocalist in the band. He is really charismatic and has a very big ego. He looks a bit full of himself sometimes, but it’s giving him a lot of charm. He is much older than the others, he seems like a big brother for all the members. But well fortunately, he is there to put a bit of order between all those young teenagers. Anyway, he is talented and has a impressive presence on stage, we like it! Next, we have Hyunseong, the main vocalist, he has surely a good voice, he is just a bit too shy sometimes, we don’t see him that much, apparently he is afraid of the camera, we hope it will change with time and that he will gain a bit of confidence with the experience. Jeongmin, the funny member, who also needs mirror everywhere he goes since he cannot stay without looking at himself. He seems really sweet, a bit boyfriend.precious but just very cute. He has a sweet voice and can use it very well. Now comes the twins, Youngmin and Kwangmin, they are really cute, it’s just surprising to see that Kwangmin is a rapper when Youngmin is just a vocalist. They are both very good in dance as well. But we have to say that the charisma of Kwangmin is more impressive than Yougmin’s charisma. It seems Kwangmin has a bigger ego as well and he is also good in communication. And finally the maknae Minwoo, he is also a rapper and a very good dancer. He can be funny and talks a lot as well. It’s also surprising to watch him rap but it gives him a bad boy look that suits him really well.
We still need to see what they can show us in the future and they still have to prove themselves a bit more. But we have confidence in their future, we are sure they can make it and become real idols. They are still young though and they definitely still need to grow up! In the meantime, we hope to see more of Boyfriend in Europe, at least that’s what Japako Music will try to do. Don’t forget to check out Boyfriend and give them your support!
