Music Review: Block B (Album: Blockbuster)

Block B sort of flew under my radar after I watched one of their early music videos, Tell Them, where I wasn't such a big fan of Zico's (their leader) dreadlocks which he apparently sheared off in remorse after an unfortunate incident during an interview in Thailand where the boys unwittingly made light of a serious situation that had occurred in Thailand at the time.

Who knew all it took was a telescope and some hefty doses of swagger?

9. You start receiving wedding invitations from people your age.

Is bleeping everyone trying to get married before they turn 27? Are my ovaries going to shrivel up and die before I'm 30? If you are lucky enough to have met your soulmate early, that's fantastic and I am truly happy for you. But if you're just rushing into it just because everybody else is, let's hope you're prepared for the consequences. Then comes the baby rush. 0_0

8. Your friends start purchasing their own car/apartment.

This is when you start realizing that having a nice, stable…
