SS501 Leading Hallyu wave in Taiwan
I do love looking at SS501's BTS-ses almost as much as looking at their concert photos. They practiced a lot before every concert... must've been tiring, you could see Baby tiredly resting himself on the couch...but every time they go out on stage....they transform into handsome and charismatic hot bundles of energy !! A big thank you to Cloud in SgTripleS for sharing this^^ :
