Wait, I thought there would be no Kpop posts on this blog?
Yes. No Kpop posts.
But why SB19? Isn’t that a boygroup? Yes. They are… but they aren’t kpop. They’re ppop.
But I thought this blog is for anything Korea-related? Yes! Because, although they are from the Philippines, their company is Korean – and they are trained under the same strict Korean training system.
What’s the catch? Nothing. You’ll fall in love with them.
To give a little bit of introduction; SB19 is a five-member Filipino boy band that consists of members Sejun, Josh, Stell, Ken, and Justin.
These 5 good-looking and authentically talented men have more to offer than what they seem like. Sometimes I think they’re too humble for their own good. They have awesome personalities making it extremely difficult to resist their charms.
Reason 1: SEJUN
Sejun is the leader of this group and rightly so as he is the main brain behind their songs. A composer and musician, Sejun humbly brings his Bachelor of Arts in English to the table from one of the country’s best state universities. I personally think he has the clearest and most polished vocals amongst them 5. If you want to be convinced with his crystal voice, you can listen to their LIVE performance here: https://youtu.be/wMhK7_7N5aU
Reason 2: JOSH
Looks can be deceiving indeed as he may look like he’s the youngest but he’s actually the oldest. But then again, age doesn’t matter when he showcases his talent as a lead rapper. He has the high tone rap position which he executes with that natural swag. Josh also is the link amongst them 5. Somehow, they were introduced to each other and encouraged the members (individually) to join ShowBT Philippines. He may have had a difficult life but he proved to be a gem as he overcomes problems and become who he is now. Watch him bring that swag live here: https://youtu.be/SS3Z2A5Ggj0
Reason 3: STELL
Stell dubbed as the heavenly voice; truly brings you to heaven not just with his voice but with his smile. This very emotional man will pierce through your soul when he sings. Not only is he the main vocal, he also contributed a lot with their choreography. This soprano choir boy also has a degree in hospitality (Hotel and Restaurant Management). *Ahem* yes please, watch him
serve those tables “swallow the CD” live with his high-notes here: https://youtu.be/aN_kkamIgmM
Reason 4: KEN
Ken, the shy guy, tsundere type has one of the huskiest and unique voices amongst them. His quirky personality changes once he’s on stage as he turns into that dancing machine; hence his position as Main Dancer. He also plays the guitar which makes him the ultimate bias-wrecker. Watch him bring on those runs live here: https://youtu.be/43IuU9X_WSk
Reason 5: JUSTIN
Just look at that sweet and innocent smile! How can you not fall for the youngest member, Justin? At his age, he has a degree in Multimedia Arts from one of the prestigious universities in the country with honours! Justin may have the position as the visual and the “bunso”/막내 but he’s got the voice too. Watch this “trickster” drag you into his world here: https://youtu.be/-tWuVqZnoL4
As of date, SB19 has become a mainstay in the Billboard charts entering the SOCIAL 50, EMERGING ARTIST, and NEXT BIG SOUND respectively. See the current rankings on the official site: https://www.billboard.com/music/sb19
