10th Most Talented Korean Idol: Lee JunhoSeptember 30, 2009
Lee Junho is probably the most underrated idol in the list. I mean if he is in another group, I’m sure he’ll be the leader and the one fans would be cheering on. He’s always behind Jaebeom talent wise and Nichkhun popularity wise.
When I think of 2pm, I always get this gang of friends impression on them. Jaebeom for example is the jock, Taec is the goofy sidekick, Wooyoung’s the joker, Nichkhun’s the boy next door guy, Junsu’s the quiet invisible one, Chansung’s the sex-crazed teenager (no offense to Hottest. It’ just an impression), and Junho’s the bad boy. The Pacey Witter of 2pm.
Junho was first known by the public as the winner of Superstar Survival. The show started with 12 teens and as the weeks goes by, they were eliminated one by one until three are left. Somewhat reminiscing of Survivor. Along with Chansung and Taec, the show intended to find potential artists that could be part of the JYP family. During the show, Junho was perceived as the cocky naive teenager. From what I’ve read, a lot of fans of the show were rooting for someone else at the finale. Someone posted the episodes but it wasn’t subbed. I hope madam2pmsub or time2sub will work on the show.
He then became part of JYP’s project group Hotblood which eventually became One Day which is then split into 2am and 2pm. Mnet even did a show about them. I honestly didn’t like the show that much. It wasn’t entertaining for me unlike Wonder Girls MTV introductory show.
In interviews, Junho has always stated that his forte is dancing. It’s actually obvious since he’s the only one who can actually keep up with Jaebeom. But I think his singing isn’t that bad. He is one of the few idols who can actually sing and dance at the same time. The first time I noticed his singing was when he and Junsu guested in a singing program. He sang Suhsi by Shin Sung Woo. That was a very difficult and high song but he pulled it off. He really pulled it off. He has a very nice tone in his voice seriously. Wooyoung and Kyu Hyun has one too. I don’t know much about singing but I know when I a guy is singing well.
Personality-wise, he has this cocky attitude as I said before. It’s honestly refreshing to have an idol like that. I think this is also what makes 2pm unique. Other idols are shy or conserved because they don’t want to tarnished their idol image. 2pm has changed that completely.
Someone commented that I should explain how I got the list the way it is. On Junho, the first elimination was meant to list down idols who actually have talent to show. I picked Junho because his dancing and singing are above average. He got through the 2nd and 3rd elimination because he does have this ‘it factor’. I can’t put it into words but there’s something about him that you would wanna see more. I don’t know if I’m writing it right but there’s just something there.
There you have it. The 1oth Most Talented Korean Idol. Please visit me soon to know the rest of the ranking. Can you guess who’s 9th?
Junho is known for his dancing but here’s a vid of him singing.
