A short intro. People asking me to link them to some BtoB videos or songs, what would I recommend or what would be the best to get to know them. It should be as easy as 1, 2, 3 really ~ I could link them to all of their videos within the minute, spam their twitter accounts with links or spazz on their FB timelines with every video/song feels. But! But! But! That ain’t the right way. Even I would feel overwhelmed and decide not to bother checking them all out. And for someone not that familiar with Born to Beat and clicking on the wrong link (meaning not to their liking), it’ll definitely be a turn-off.
Don’t get me wrong, we are all different when it comes to music. Even in one idol group we have our own biases -for they are the ones that suites our tastes. Quick example: Beast – I personally, instantly like Doojoon and Junhyeung. Obvious answer, Rappers.
And so, this was how I got hook into BtoB (I know I’ve mentioned it a lot of times in my previous blogs): one of my closest friend linked me to Minhyuk’s pre-debut songs. The HEOTA ones, his Sporty Dog days. I can’t exactly remember which one but she linked me two to three SD* songs~ I guess she was confident I would love it all. She was right and good. I was spazzing after that and even DLed and included some on my eternal playlist (personal music playlist I never, ever erase). She knew I love rappers and breathes hip-hop music. I didn't even know Minhyuk (Heota for me that time) was a BtoB member and didn't really get a chance to get a good look on his face for I was on mobile phone when I listened to his songs. And, I wasn't even that familiar with BtoB (I’d read it as “bi-tob”).
I’ve seen my friends’ tweets to their account @OFFICIALBTOB and I remember watching their first vid when they debuted with Insane. I simply wasn’t a fan back then and I was actually trying to block all new artists since KPop is just, inconsistent? A lot of changes and new stuffs EVERYDAY. I’d rather stick to my old fandoms and have enough of their drama (not really a bad thing).

My fave ALBUM out of the 2 released Mini-Albums. I recommend this one if one's tired Not that they have much but it indeed gave the 90's vibe I've always wanted. My genre, I guess. Shows my real age, right?
Press Play (featuring G.NA!~ so nice! Gives me my Heota feels, and 사랑밖에 난 몰라 too, not the ordinary KPop song.
WORTH THE MONEY. Though I got mine as a gift, 'cause I got the best friends in the world, knowing what I love before I get 'em!
MUSIC VIDEO. The WOW song is something to be proud of. They’ve never failed performing it live on their promotions and each performance was just something to look forward to. They’re having so much fan and got crazy tactics in the end.
It's got the 90's catchy beat, really mood-uplifting.
