[PS! Final Face-off] SHINee vs. 2PMPosted: August 16, 2009
Which boy group has more male charm~?
Previously, the first POPSEOUL! Final Face-off was between the American debutantes BoA and the Wondergirls. Curious as to who triumphed based on your commentary? Check out the podcast we created. It’s moderately long, but if you can stick it out, give us some feedback on it.
There are plenty of male groups out there, and all of them are seeking to pull at your heart strings every time they flash a smile, throw a subtle wink, or rip off their shirt. So for this week’s PS! Final Face-off, we want you to pit two of the freshest boy groups on the scene right now and tell us which gang possesses the most irresistible charms to make the girls squirm, squeal, and swoon.
As the best showing rookies of 2008, SM Entertainment‘s latest boy group caused the most massive stir among older females when they debuted with “Replay (Noona you’re so pretty)”. Right out of the gate, SHINee has not faltered with their crisp and slick dance moves unexpected of a rookie group, and have charmed the ladies with their boyish good looks and unspoiled masculinity. With their untarnished and wholesome image, do you want to be SHINee’s “Juliette“?
JYP Entertainment‘s hottest male group debuted in the fall of 2008 arousing the females with their energetic aerobatics on stage to the tune of their debut single, “10 out of 10“. Over the past year, 2PM shown us more than back-flips and somersaults, they’ve unleashed smooth moves with their comeback “Again & Again” that were oozing with charisma, and that they are essentially a bunch of dorks that just like to mess around most of the time. Do their devil-may-care whims win you over?
Remember, what you should take into consideration shouldn’t be which is more popular or “better”, but rather whose aura is most appealing to the female demographic. Give us your best evidence, amusing anecdotes, and personal convictions, and we’ll take those into consideration.
Which group’s “pheromones” make more of your girly hormones rage? If you’re a dude, we’re not leaving you out in the cold; which group most bruises your male ego when your girlfriend/wife fawns over these boys?
SHINee or 2PM?
You have spoken and what I’m hearing is…
2PM has male charm in spades.
I almost gave it to SHINee for this one comment from balabababa1003325, “oh please, the members of 2pm individually are just really girly,” which when you think about it and from their behavior on Wild Bunny, that’s a fairly valid statement.
Reading the comments, it was nice to see POPSEOULers appreciating the unique qualities of both groups. I thought = )SHINee2PM‘s little catch phrase was quite cute, “Rise & SHINee it’s 2PM!“
Although many POPSEOULers weren’t afraid to admit to being a noona in love, 2PM seemed to be the obvious choice for almost everybody. SHINee is definitely the more polished and talented boy group between the two, but many of you felt SHINee’s boyhood, pastel skinny jeans, and “appropriate proper prissy idol” personas just couldn’t stand a chance against 2PM’s “beasty” stage charisma and “adorkable” personalities on your girly hormones. Guess feminine guys aren’t in vogue anymore.
