Cross Gene is a rookie K-pop group that caught a lot of attention because of its members’ nationalities. 3 members are from Korea, 2 from China, and 1 from Japan.
As for me, it caught my attention because one of the members, Shin, is on the drama Big, that I’m watching on KBS right now (it’s a good drama, you should watch it). And because one of the members is Japanese, and he’s 모델 출신, so he’s really cute. Takuya’s Japanese accent is so adorable, and he’s fluent in Korean, but I wonder why he doesn’t ‘really’ sing. SangMin makes me laugh because he reminds me of Giant in Doraemon. Casper is the macho man in the group. JG is the one with the best voice because he’s the main vocalist. And Shin is probably the most popular member, but my favorite is YongSeok… after I watched this video where he made Takuya teach the pronounciation of Japanese ta-chi-tsu-te-to:
The Cross Gene boys are too funny. I wonder whether they have their own variety show because I’d like to watch it.
I read on Yahoo! JAPAN that the group’s 1st album will be released in some Asian countries, including my country Indonesia, so instead of ordering it directly from South Korea, I plan to wait for the Indonesian edition to be released. That way I can get it cheaper. I asked about the release date to Universal Music Indonesia via Twitter, but they didn’t answer me (역시 I knew they wouldn’t).
But since they have retweeted Cross Gene’s music video, I guess it will happen soon. Or in a couple of months… or next year, even… who knows… but I think my craving can wait…
Anyway, let’s learn some Korean expressions from the video below:
