Why did I decided to write my very first article about Lee Changsub? I will try to explain it in this article and convince you to love him as much as I do.
Changsub is a ’91 liner, and a member of BtoB. He was not in the original line up for BtoB, Cube added him and Yook Sungjae just before the group’s debut. They were participants in reality show “Kpop Star Hunt” while being trainees.
I prefer the underrated artists, the ones who are not under the spotlight despite their amazing personality and talent. Changsub is one of them. While watching MTV’s Diary and other reality shows featuring BtoB, I noticed this shy and strange person who is always kind of stuck behind other “louder” members like leader Eunkwang or maknae Sungjae. The way he sings just doesn’t really match his looks or quiet personality. He sings with so much passion that everyone who hears him is amazed by the talent that just pours out of him. As time passed by and I got more into their music and everything that I saw behind the scenes made me love and appreciate him even more.
He is shy almost all the time but when someone needs to step out and “be the man” he is the first one to volunteer. He once said “For ones that I love and respect.., my friends or my family…, word “Imposible” does not exist. I will always try my best.”
Other thing what makes him amazing is his aegyo. I have seen many artists in K-Pop with lot of aegyo, but Changsub does it without even knowing it. His facial expressions are really unique and adorable without him even needing to try.
It is really sad to me that on Wikipedia where all his members have links to their profiles, he doesn’t have one. After almost three years in industry no one even tried to write his profile. From time to time I go and check it and still nothing. Even if he is not that active outside the group he deserves it.
It is not just Changsub that is under-rated, all of BtoB is left behind. My heart aches for them because until now they haven’t got any single win on any of the music shows. I wonder why, perhaps it is that their company is at fault for not giving them more attention? Maybe it is bad song choices? Or perhaps they are more tuned to B2ST, their sunbaes?
Don’t get me wrong I love B2st, they work really hard for their popularity and are incredibly talented, but so does BtoB and there is enough love in the K-Pop world to give some to every group. I am honestly shocked sometimes at their lack of wide popularity because every member has great personality and likeability as well as incredible talent.
Changsub released cover song “I’ll be Your Melody pt.2” on October 27 th. This is second season where BtoB members are doing ballad covers of their sunbae’s. His voice is so beautiful, so full of emotion that his singing brought me to tears. I could feel sadness through his voice, the longing, love it was magical. He has such powerful yet soft voice that you can’t deny. I want to share his talent with you and I want whole world to hear his voice so everyone can love him like I do.
