Musings

Sunday Spam: The Let’s-Learn-A-Thing-Together Edition (pt. 2) VIXX

Okay, so we aren’t really learning together.  VIXX is my favorite group of all time, but rather than only doing these new biographies on groups I’m not super in tune with wouldn’t be fair to the groups I do love.  For the first installment in the new series (technically the second installment overall but whatever) we talk about my OT6!

Step 1: Music!

9. I also included their music video collaborations with other groups the two Christmas singles with the other singers in their company, and their collaboration with the indie duo 옥상달빛 (OKDAL). [individual members have also worked with others but will be listed with those members descriptions below]

Step 2: Group Info!

The group is signed under Jellyfish Entertainment Company.

Their name is an acronym for Voice, Visual, Value in Excelsis.

The group was created in part through a Mnet’s reality show MyDol where they vied with some other prospects for spots in the group based on viewers votes.  Watch the first episode with English subs: here. 

These boys have been on a number of reality shows if you like MyDol you might also want to watch MTV Diary, Plan V Diary, VIXX File.

From nearly their debut until they had 100 episodes under their belt the boys also put out videos on YouTube every Tuesday for their fans.  I highly recommend watching VIXX TV.

They also have made appearances on a number of variety shows.  Most memorable of which is probably the debut of VIXX GIRLS.

I also highly recommend looking up some of their radio show appearances (especially on 심심타파 (Shimshimtapa) if you want to laugh).

Step 3: Members!

  • N:
    Real Name – Cha Hakyeon (차학연)
    Birthday – June 30th, 1990
    Age – 24
    Position – Leader,Lead Dancer
    Acting in the drama Hotel King as a bellhop named Noah!
    Solo Performance One & Two!
    Also his singing!

  • Ken:
    Real Name – Lee Jaehwan (이재환)
    Birthday – April 6th, 1992
    Age – 22
    Position – Lead Vocal
    Singing Solo!
    I have no specific link but I would like to add the Ken calls himself the “cute main vocal” so … its not difficult to find him making you laugh.

  • Hogbin:
    Real Name – Lee Hongbin (이홍빈)
    Birthday – September 29th, 1993
    Age – 20
    Position – Visual, Sub Vocal, Sub Rapper
    People always say that he’s the weakest singer … I say that is false. VIXX staff always has him singing slightly out of his range.
    Also, best at crazy eyes. (He’s the one in the black outfit with light brown hair)
    Also, his acting in Glorious Day as Yoo Jiho.

  • Hyuk:
    Real Name – Han Sanghyuk (한상혁)
    Birthday – July 5th, 1995
    Age – 19
    Position – Maknae, Dancer, Sub Vocal
    His participation in Law of the Jungle.
    His participation in Hitmaker (with N).
    There is as of yet no solo of his singing available to us.  I wait.  It will come.

These boys are my precious babies and I will love them until forever.  Hopefully.  Give them lots of love.
