Anonymous asked: I've been really wanting to get into Block B for a while, but I never really could because of Zico. It's not really anything he's done, it's just that for some reason every time I see him I just feel really intimidated even though I know nothing about him. I don't exactly know what I should do about it so I was wondering if you might be able to do a sort of character analysis for him? I don't like to misjudge people and I would hate to make him an exception to that :(


That’s funny, because he is actually the person I respect the most in kpop :3

Zico is someone who knows who he is and does not let anyone else decide that for him. He is so passionate about the things he loves that it is actually inspiring to me. He is an amazing rapper, but he can also sing, write, and produce. He is one of my favorite producers — I have yet to be disappointed by a song of his — and I really like how he writes and produces for people who are not in the same group or company as he is, and who are not very popular.

He does not write and produce for the sake of fame and money, but rather simply because he loves it. He does whatever he can to help struggling groups / artists gain even the tiniest bit of recognition.


This goes for all of Block B, but he really could not care less about having an “idol image,” and would rather just have fun and enjoy himself in whatever he does. He is unbelievably dorky and just downright weird at times, and it is fantastic.




Even though he can seem very cocky and difficult to approach, he is actually a rather humble and down-to-earth person. 


He may seem like the type who likes to party and go clubbing, but he has firmly stated the exact opposite. He is someone who would much rather stay home and relax than go out and drink.


The amount of pure shock on his face when Block B won their first music show always does its job of reminding me just how humble he is. Never in his wildest dreams had the thought even crossed his mind that Block B might win a music show. He was not out there to win. He was out there to make music and have fun. This win was merely the icing atop a cake for him.


Another thing is his preference when it comes to women. Zico is one of the few idols who has blatantly stated that he does not like skinny women; he likes women with no thigh gap at all. He not only has stated that he prefers that type of body, but he has also called it “glamorous.” I think it speaks volumes about him when he so clearly states this, even when he lives in a country where so many believe that the only way to beautiful is to be skinny, and so many idols mimic this way of thinking.



If you need any other reasons to not be so wary of him, just look at these pictures of him showing off his stupid Hello Kitty obsession








I hoped this helped you learn a bit about him~ Sorry if I rambled on there ^^” I genuinely think that you should give him and Block B a chance; I have yet to meet a person who checked them out and regretted it.

If part of the intimidation is in the videos / the hard rapping, then I would suggest listening to some of their softer stuff, which they are amazing at:

Movie’s Over (he sings in this one :3)

Be the Light (he also sings in the beginning :3)


Did You Or Did You Not

Also, you could check out some of the shows they have done:

Weekly Idol

Weekly Idol (again)

Match Up (kind of like a Block B TV)

In one of Jiho hyung’s lyrics, he wrote, ‘I am the roof as well as the pillar so I can’t crumble; everyone try and fight me.’ Just like the lyrics he wrote, I hope he can live the rest of his life being that awesome roof and pillar for us and his fans, and remain as the Zico with awesome leadership.

[LYRICS] Tough Cookie - Zico

Hello to all the ignorant fools

Who still throw me nasty looks

Too bad for you

Block B swept all the charts

We were handed the trophy

Without sajaegi1, I made it

Performance contracts and featuring requests

I wasn’t sure how to reject them

I’m the top of idol rappers

Fuck, I ain’t no snake’s head2

My competition is elsewhere

Nothing in the broadcast networks

J-Tong hyung who was my hater

Recruited me into Buckwilds

During the lawsuit I was contacted

Many times by big agencies

Honestly, I’m comfortable in a wild environment

To a company’s care, I say “No Thanks”

I’m always running, never satisfied

I’m totally gone, drunk man3

I’ll make you wet your underwear

Don’t try to stop me, ever

There’s no expiration date to my walk of life

In all eternity, I won’t ever rest4

You confess that,

"You have no glory days", why?

My flow is fierce5

So the situation is over and dealt with

Draw attention, I’m clearing my name

That was tarnished

While taking part in Hallyu

I get looks of longing, what!

I’m not

Your friend

And I’m not

Your family

I’m not

Your peer

Bite me wrong6

And all your teeth might fall out









Bite me wrong

And all your teeth might fall out

1 Sajaegi is the practice of companies buying or hiring others to buy bulks of their product to boost sales numbers

2 The original proverb is that “It is better to be a snake’s head than a dragon’s tail”, meaning it’s better to be the best in a weaker/smaller group than the bottom of a stronger group. The English equivalent would be, “It’s better to be a big fish in a small pond”. My interpretation is that Zico is saying he’s not in the small/weak group at all.

3 Word play. “Satisfied” or “settled” is the same word as “snacks that go with alcohol”. If you don’t eat while or before drinking, you can get really drunk.

4 Can be read as “I won’t ever rest” or “I won’t ever spoil”

5 Can also be read as “You have no balls” why? Because my flow castrates

6 “To bite” also means to talk smack about someone.
