TOP on 10Asia report (★)
Question (submitted by a reader)
The moment TOP of Bigbang appeared on the stage, the winter has left and the spring has come. I sang and danced along happily to “FANTASTIC BABY’ while the rest of bigbang performed…just until TOP came to the center of the stage and chanted, ‘BOOM SHAKALAKA.” It was like I was under a spell; I couldn’t move a muscle, kind of like a frozen computer screen. I’ve been saying that the whole day: boom shakalaka, boom shakalaka. Doctor, what has Almighty TOP done to me?
Doctor’s Advice (written by the reporter)
Ok. Close your eyes and think for a moment. What do you feel when TOP says, “it’s as if my heart is frozen / you and I frozen at the spot after a war” in Blue? You feel your heart really stop and you wish that you and TOP were really the only ones at that place, don’t you? What about when he confesses, “the guy you love—sorry i’m a bad boy” in Bad Boy? Don’t you just think, “Oh, it doesn’t really matter whether he’s bad or good, please just stay if you’re really that sorry’? Sometimes you nod at TOP’s voice, sometimes you fall to your knees at TOP’s voice. Someone told me once: “TOP isn’t rapping; he’s convincing.” How can anyone resist his endlessly underground-tunnel-shoveling-deep-voice? And that is why, even when he says something as incoherent as “boom shakalaka,” everyone falls into the panic and confusion mode. Because it’s not any guy, it’s TOP the handsome. It’s not any color, it’s mint on his head. it’s not any facial expression, it’s TOP’s proud face with his ever-so-slowly-popping hipbones. Actually forget everything. It’s not just anyone, it’s TOP.
Of course, TOP is a perfection that does not need any help from, let’s say, low-voiced rap or a sexy dance. The sharp jawline is about to slice you, the deep eyes are about to suck you in, and an uncaring gesture of his finger is enough to mesmerize you. It was the same way in the dramas. Musin of <I am Sam> made the noonas’ hearts flutter with his rap, and Vic of <Iris>, with his side profile of his laser-beam eyes holding a gun—no actually, just the mere fact that he was ON THE SCREEN was enough for a thanksgiving ceremony.
And TOP who is THIS hot comes and conquers the variety show world, imitating Seungri and YG and JK and Yoon Mooksik. Simple: there is no exit. So let me just be honest with you. To be completely frank, for this perfect of a guy, no question is needed to fangirl him. Fangirling TOP is a happy duty and a thankful right as a woman living under the same sky as TOP.
