Welcome to DatJoeDoe Show's Joe's Blog!! This week we're getting to know K-Pop siblings better, and paying tribute to Joe's favourite pop idol - T.O.P.

BOYFRIEND was the group on this week's ‘Who’s Debut?'. While learning about the group, I found out they have twin members (Youngmin and Kwangmin). It got me thinking about whether there are other k-pop siblings out there? So I did endless research and found out for you...

Fun facts about 5 K-Pop Siblings:

1. Krystal Jung (f(x)) and Jessica Jung (Solo, and former SNSD member)
 
The Jung sisters were scouted by SM Entertainment during a family trip to Korea. They've been so successful they even had their own reality show ‘Krystal & Jessica.'
 
 
2. Thunder (Former MBLAQ member) and Dara (2NE1)
 
Dara and Thunder supported the campaign effort, "WEGENERATION" to help the devastated survivors of Super Typhoon Yolanda which hit their former home - The Philippines. (Amazing work)!
 
 
3. Youngmin and Kwangmin (Twin BOYFRIEND members)
 
According to the BOYFRIEND members, Kwangmin is hyper active while Youngmin is lazy (I am Youngmin lol).
 
 
4. Way and Choa (Twin CRAYON POP members)
 
With CRAYON POP’s success, Choa and Way got their own subunit group called ‘Strawberry Milk’ with their track ‘Ok’ in 2014.
 
 
5. Chan Hyuk and Soo Hyun (Akdong Musician)
 
These twins won the show ‘K-Pop Star Season 2’ together and it was their ticket to fame signing with YG Entertainment.
 

 

A Tribute to T.O.P

This week, I want to pay tribute to one of my favourite idols, T.O.P. Ever since I found out about BIGBANG I’ve always seen T.O.P as a role model - someone I could look up to for inspiration. I’m such a fan. I’ve seen all of his movies, from his debut in Story of Men to his latest, Tazza: The Hidden Card
 
So before he goes to the military and does his service I dedicated a video to him. Here’s my video homage to the one and only Bingu T.O.P!
