Busters’ Taehee’s Visual
Taehee and Gyejin are the most good looking members of Bursters. Their faces are calm and their clothing styles are simple and casual, unlike any members of a rock band. However, on the stage, they can be a different person and could get any rock fans to shout and scream according to their music.
Taehee is the main person responsible for the beat and rhythm of Bursters’ music. Apparently, he maintains good physical condition. He has a muscular upper arm and a stout upper body. His hairstyle is simple. Judging from his look, he could fit into any male idol group. Aside from his good physics, he is also an excellent communicator. He is a talkative person. During interviews, he usually adds his own views and opinions about Bursters performances.
Bursters posted Taehee’s drum solo on Bursters’ official YouTube channel. He performed live and played “Savage.” His solo drum version was slightly different from the original version. In the intro section, he added a more intense rhythm. His drumbeat could ignite the mood of any rock fan.
Taehee has his own YouTube channel: DrummerJoTV. He made the channel and has posted videos since April 2013. On his YouTube channel, he posts exclusive videos of him playing drums during the Bursters UK Tour concerts. He has also posted clips of him giving drum lessons to a subscriber. Most of his videos are drum covers of popular songs like Katy Perry’s “Firework,” and BTS’ “Euphoria.”
Bursters posted clips of their live stage performance during their recent UK tour. Even though they performed their original songs, songs that were completely new to UK fans, the audience could be seen jumping on their feet and raising their hands. It would seem that music is a global language.
Bursters posted a special interview about their UK tour. Taehee and other members performed in five cities in the UK: Norwich, Birmingham, Brighton, London, and Manchester. They aimed to introduce Korean rock and show foreign fans that Korea is more than just K-Pop.
Daegun felt relaxed when performing on stages because his rock star idols used to perform on the same stage. He said that it was his first time traveling to a foreign country. About their performance, he insisted that each member should concentrate and pay attention more to their stamina. Since they perform every day or every other day, they should maintain good stamina in order to be able to perform well on the stage.
Gyejin said that he wanted to learn English more and experience other music fields. Other members made fun of him and said that Gyejin can speak English well if he is drunk. Daegun added that after each performance, staff and Bursters members went to dinner and enjoyed the evening. However, they had trouble communicating with fans and local staff. After several days, even though they couldn’t speak English, they could at least slightly understand and could communicate through body language. In the future, they hope to speak English better.
Hwanhee felt that he has to improve his stamina more. He got an indigestion problem right before their second performance and his face became extremely pale. He felt slightly disappointed for not being able to visit and watch a soccer game. At the time, the season had just finished. He would love to visit the UK and watch a soccer game.
In the end, they looked forward to making better music and to hold music concerts. All members wished fans to maintain and take care of each other’s health during the pandemic.
