Group of the Week: VIXX

I wasn't sure what to write for my post today, so I thought I'd try something a bit different. Let me know if you like it and I'll write some more often (or not). I wanted to talk about some of my favourite artists, perhaps you haven't heard of them, or maybe you have and want to discuss your opinion! Either way, I'd love to hear what you think^^

The first group I'd like to feature is VIXX, they are a six member boy band who debuted in 2012 with the song 'Superhero'. Admittedly I didn't really discover them until last year, but I'm glad I did because I've been playing their songs quite often since then.


The group were orginally on a show called 'MYDOL' where singers were voted off by viewers until they were left with 6, who debuted as VIXX. They've also been on a few variety shows like 'All The Kpop' and some Mnet shows too~ they're very fun to watch so I recommend you check them out^^


They gained a lot of attention with the release of their songs 'Hyde' and 'On and On'. The concept was a lot more dark, in contrast to their first releases. Personally, I liked 'On and On' better, because it was so catchy and I thought one of the best songs of 2013. It's more likely that you've heard of these songs than the first ones (although 'Rock ur Body' is such a fun track, one of my favourites^^)



Their most recent song won them their first music show win. It's called 'Voodoo Doll', and as you can imagine, sticks with the dark concept. It's so good*-* Be warned that there is a little gory scene right at the start but it doesn't last more than 10 seconds so close your eyes if you don't like it^^ I love the dance and the song and the outfits and the video~ I hope you can check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading guys! x

  1. OMG I LOVE VIXX, they're amazing and by far my favourite K-Pop band. All of my friends know how much I love them and they hardly believe how much time I spend obsessing over VIXX :) Starlights forever!!!

  2. VIXX definitely caught my attention with their "Voodoo Doll" performances. I think they have the potential to become a very successful K-pop group, and I can already tell that they're becoming much more popular these days. They sing well, dance well, and I think they have very charming personalities that work well for TV shows. I'm sad I missed the opportunity to see them when they were in my city for a K-pop festival. I wish I had known who they were a few months ago because I would've loved to see them on stage!

    I think it's cool if you continue to feature some of your favourite artists. Sometimes I like to share the music that I listen to, and it's great when I get to read about other people's music preferences. :)

    1. Yes, I loved their performances for Voodoo Doll too! That's such a shame that you missed them, I've yet to see any Kpop band live so I just have to rely on Youtube hehe^^

      I'm glad that you liked this post, I was unsure if people would care haha:L But I like to read about other people's music tastes too~ Thanks for reading Terri! x

  5. HI I'D JUST LIKE TO SAY THAT I HAVE PROUDLY TALKED TO VIXX AND HIGH FIVED N OHOHO-
    They preformed at Otakon in 2012 (which I saw) and happened to be walking around the dealers room while I was there; it was the last day of the con and I guess they wanted to tour around a bit. They complimented me on my dress and I got to high five N before security started closing around them again.
    SOBS I FEEL LIKE SUCH A LUCKY GIRL NOW ABHUIFHUDO
    BUT YEAH THEY'RE GREAT. ;;;; Super tall in real life too; Ravi also wears a lot of eyeliner. 8'D
    I'm so glad to see them growing in the music industry. ///v/// <3

  6. VIXX <33333333333 I fell in love with them last year when I heard "Hyde". I thought the whole Jekyll and Hyde theme was so brilliant and the song and performance was just mind blowing. And now with Voodoo Doll I just cry. I'm so happy to see VIXX getting so popular because they definitely work hard.
