Welcome to DatJoeDoe Show's Joe's Blog!! This week he's teaching us about NCT's Taeyong and sharing you K-Drama opinions...

Taeyong is the face of new SM rising group NCT. He’s well known for his good looks - right!? But what else do you know about this next generation superstar?
Here are some fun facts about NCT’s Taeyong:
1. Before Taeyong was part of SM Entertainment, his dream was to become a firefighter (NCT released a song called ‘Firetruck’... coincidence? haha).
2. He helped pen the lyrics for NCT U’s single ‘The 7th Sense’ alongside fellow member Mark.
3. His favourite ringtone is ‘silent’ (same haha).
4. He's stated that his role models are TVXQ because of their hard working characteristics. 
5. Taeyong has Mysophobia, which means he has fear of germs and contamination. He even washes his clothes separately from the group.
6. Taeyong has been voted as the best male visual of all male K-pop idols in a survey (he's a real life flower).
7. He is a big fan of Studio Ghibli films, especially Howl’s Moving Castle.
8. If he could have a super power, it would be the ability to teleport.

K-Pop opinion

Every week on my Facebook page, KPOPJOE, I ask fans their opinions on different topics. This week I I asked: 

“What is your all-time favourite k-drama and why?”

Here are the top comments:

"Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. It's well balanced. The story line is strong and doesn't go weird half way through. It encompasses the WHOLE cast and their stories which is refreshing. When it's sad, you cry, when it's funny you die of laughter. If you haven't already check it out." - Jade Vihimanogi Nemz 
"Goblin!! - The cast was so good! They were funny, adorable, sexy, devastating, and righteous! A story with amazing plots and unique mythical qualities to it. I recommend it all the time” - Cailey Snyder
"Kill Me, Heal Me - The way Ji Sung has enacted all the personalities is mind blowing. The drama is a mixture of mystery, romance and comedy, which makes it the best. Also, the acting of all the supporting actors is amazing." -Ayesha Ali
