I am not so thoroughly entrenched in Kpop that I know all about all of the groups that are or have debuted…not by any stretch of the imagination. But I am prone to falling down Youtube video black holes that reveal to me the magic of the unknown. And when I say magic, I mean super pervy noona magic. Like I am the super pervy noona and they are magic.
Dalmatian (terrible name but they were going for a tribute to the loyalty of the breed more so than the spots) debuted in 2010 and in less than a year, they were rife with controversy…you can tell by the no shirts and mix of fake and real tattoos that they were always going to be fun. Pre-debut, one member left the group and shortly after debut, another followed for ‘personal reasons.’ Don’t you worry, they kept up their numbers by bringing back the member that had left previously. Another member enlisted in the military not long after that and then the group changed its name to DMTN…as in Desire, Motivation, Timing, Now. Of course that’s what it stands for. And just when they were hitting their stride again….drug controversy. As in a member was allegedly growing, selling, and using marijuana. That’s a big deal in South Korea. Needless to say, this group has been on hiatus since 2014.
I’m mostly sharing these details so this doesn’t turn into a post where I only talk about shirtlessness, dance moves, tattoos, and lovely hair.
All of this being said, the individual members have remained active in various pursuits and are worth looking up. There is a lot of writing, producing, collabing and dancing going on that should be recognized. However, before you run off to check ‘em out, do me a favor and watch the video E.R. as…background research. It’s well worth it. I started off trying to pinpoint the exact time stamps for some of the best scenes, but there were too many. Just watch it. Super pervy noona magic will happen. It’s great. I think it cures things….
