Today on Oddness/Weirdness I'm introducing one of my favorite blogs/bloggers to my site for an opinion piece. My friend Stormy of MyMusicRadar! had something relevant to vent about and I figured this would be a great place to do it. Hopefully I'll be featuring some more guest posting on the site and maybe doing a bit of guest posting of my own. Comment below and let me know what you think!
Another episode of 'All Babies grow UP!'
This is NOT the face of innocence my friends.
The sad fact is, ALL babies grow up. If only we let them.... Taemin has been asking...nay BEGGING us to let him grow up, but it seems that netizens on the whole don't want him to. They insist that he stay in their little bubble of sweetness and, frankly, its starting to get on my nerves. Kpop is notoriously filled with softporn and homo-eroticism that smacks some people in the face and is so 'not the reality they wanted', to coin one of Jonghyun's own phrases. This my friends is really not about sex, but more....about passion.
Lets face some reality here, with all the unspoken rules set upon them by said netizens, and being of age with no outlets available, who are they to unleash this passion upon but each other???? and us, in the form of the rock stage presented to us by Jonghyun and Taemin at their SHINee World Concert II in Seoul recently. Lets go to the video shall we?

Let me say this about that:
No one is forcing Taemin to cross swords with Jonghyun here!
He's doing it all on his own.So stop bashing Jonghyun for supposedly taking Taemin's innocence! Taemin, though sometimes submissive, is quite capable of saying, "NO!", as he did when Heechul attempted an onstage kiss 2 years ago.
Things changed though:
See the passion here too?
Taemin has been all about the passion of stages for a long time. He is trying to show us a new and more mature color. I'm not going to get all into the culture differences here, that's another story altogether. Netizens I beg you....let the boy grow up!
or even this...
All that creative and artistic passion has GOT to go some where.
In conclusion, if you can't look upon these stages and appreciate them for what they are? Maybe Kpop is not for you. To that I say a passionate GTFO! Go watch some Justin Beiber or something with kittens and puppies. Me? I'm raping the replay button on that video. I love rock hard passion...
