Like any of 18-year-old girl, I'm a fan of a lot of things. Football and k-pop are the most severe. But above all, there's nothing I cherish more than my life, my family and my friends :)

Best Collaborations by Beast's Yoseob

Yup... Until 2014, I count that there are 17 collaborations done by our favorite main vocalist, the very charming Yang Yoseob, with other artists outside from BEAST members *being main vocalist has its perks* 

Note that some of these collabs aren't official, meaning that it was a special live performance. There are no MP3 version of "Corre", "Running in the Sky", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "When I First Saw You" and "To You" since all of them are the special performance in 2014 Music Bank in Mexico; 2011 Sydney Kpop Fastival; 2010, 2013 and 2014 KBS Gayo Daechukje respectively.

Oh.. and by the way, I am hopelessly and completely falling in love with Yoseob's voice. So, don't take this list too seriously because I might like or dislike a song based only on Yoseob's part in that song, haha (ᗒᗨᗕ) But, don't worry, I'll try my best to give my thought about the other singers too (^o^)

Here's my list!
17. "From Where and Until Where" - with HyunA (4minute), 2014
Yoseob's part in this song is too high in my opinion. 

16. "Tearfully Beautiful" - with Nam Woohyun (Infinite), Jo Kwon (2AM) and Niel (Teen Top), 2012
This song is too cheesy for my taste. With a line-up of powerful vocalists, they sure can do better than this. Oh, and the blue costume.. it's just plain ugly.

15. "To You" - with N.EX.T; Son Dongwoon (BEAST), Kim Sunggyu, Jang Dongwoo and Hoya (Infinite); D.O., Park Chanyeol and Byun Baekhyun (EXO), 2014
There he goes again, making Beauty proud beyond measure. How Yoseob belted "Geudaeleul pogihal su eobseoyo~" (I can't give you up) is just breathtaking. That's the spirit! Sunggyu was also showing his inner rocker side. Dongwoo and Dongwoon are bartering their dorkiness. Chanyeol seemed pretty relaxed, but D.O. and Baekhyun looked.. nervous. The band, however, was the true star of the night!

14. "Perfume" - with Oh Seunghee and Choi Yoojin (CLC), 2013
This song is surprisingly good and I expect nothing less from Yoseob. The music itself is bright and..girly? At first I thought what Cube meant by 'Cube girls' is Gayoon and G.Na, but.. it turns out to be Seunghee and Yoojin who was still a trainee at that time.

13. "Bohemian Rhapsody" - with Lee Changmin (2AM), Kim Jonghyun (SHInee) and Jun.K (2PM), 2010
Without a doubt, I would put this song higher if only Yoseob had more lines. Hehe.. Gosh, Yoseob's rock-operatic voice blasted the damn sound system! The shortest one (and still a rookie, mind you) stood out the most. I can't get his lines out of my head, "If I'm not back again this time tomorrow" and "Oooo..baby, can't do this to me, baby" XD The Glee-esque dance and choir in the back were the plus points that make this collab compelling to watch.

Pssst.. Yoseob looks so cute here (miss his spiky hair). I swear, he looks like a 12-year-old-boy wearing his dad's leather jacket and bow tie X3

12. "If I Have a Lover" - with Choi G.Na / Heo Gayoon (4minute) / IU, 2011
Yoseob sang this with three different girls!!! He was most confident (almost like a teaser) with G.Na, cutest with Gayoon and shy with IU. So many different sides of our Yoseobie X3 Here's when Yoseob sang it with G.Na at BEAST's solo concert 'Welcome to B2ST Airline':
I find it funny when he took G.Na's hand (with his manly charm), and Beauties started screaming, then G.Na struggled to freed her hand. But Yoseob seemed amused by the fans' reaction. He tried to tease them again by touching the side of G.Na's head when the song slowed down, as if he's about to kiss her, and Beauties screamed even louder. Then, again, Beauties screamed when G.Na was tapping Yoseob's shoulder at the end of the song. Hahaha... XD Anyway, G.Na was gorgeous here. She was a tad taller than Yoseob and she wasn't wearing high heels. Yoseob, you shorty sweetheart!

11. "When I First Saw You" - with Jung Eunji (A Pink), 2013
Whose English was better? Eunji or Yoseob? Sorry Yoseob, I can't save you this time. I have to say Eunji's English was better XD I've been a fan of Eunji's voice since I listened to "Love Day", but this performance makes me adore her voice even more <3 Yoseob was amazing as always, but I do think this song was too low for him, especially in the verse. Maybe I'm not used to listening his voice that low *of course, in BEAST he's in charge of high notes* .__. On the bright side, I love their harmonization during "And day in.. and day out.."
Both of them are the main vocalist and the 'happy virus' in their own group. Not only on camera, but they also being playful off camera. Gotta ship them! Yay! <3
10. "Wish" - with Heo Gayoon (4minute), 2014 
Their voices are coated by honey, enough said. 

9. "Fly So High" - with all Cube artists, 2011
Three years ago this song would definitely be in the top 3. I have a soft spot for this song because this song is what turns me into a Cube stan.

What I love about Cube is that all of their artists can sing! All of them seem reluctant to use backtrack. I'm proud that they always sing live (yes.. lip-sync is such a bad habit, even if it's not illegal). I never saw them depend on backtrack and lip-sync for the sake of hardcore choreography that can wows the audience.

8. "Running in the Sky" - with CNBLUE and G.O. (MBLAQ), 2011
Woot.. woot.. This song is definitely my jam! I wonder why not a lot of people know the song. To be honest, this song needs more recognition. This was my first time watching CNBLUE and, wow, they're mega-cool! This was also my first time watching G.O.'s singing, he's such a lady killer! *I know, I'm a typical flop when it comes to other idols outside from Cube* Yoseob screaming, "Make some noise!" was EPIC. The audience was ecstatic. Overall, it's good to see the boys having fun and throwing ad libs here and there on stage.

7. "Christmas Song" - with all Cube artists, 2013
This is a kind of song that makes you want to cuddle your teddy bear and swing yourself to your right and left. And, look, the MV is so full of eye-candies!
I'm thankful for Yoseob's perfect opening and wink XD My favorite part is the part in which I can sing along a.k.a. the English lyrics, like "Jingle bells..jingle bells..jingle all the way" and "Merry christmas..oh happy happy day.. u-uh.." The transition from Junhyung's laid-back rapping to Ilhoon's frantic rapping is interesting.

6. "Bye Bye Love" - with Son Dongwoon (BEAST), Lee Changsub and Jung Ilhoon (BToB), 2013
Changsub is threatening to take Hyunseung's place as the my favorite duet partner for Yoseob at this point. Haha.. Kidding! Of course HyunSeob will always be my favorite vocalists in BEAST. But, can I have another ChangSeob collab, pretty please? The funny thing is that Ilhoon's rap was so good I thought it's Junhyung who is rapping XD My favorite part is "..jiwobolge bye~bye~bye~"

5. "Be Alright" - with Lee Changsub (BtoB), Heo Gayoon (4minute) and G.Na, 2012
Wow! No one should doubt the strenght of a song that is sung by Cube's finest vocalists! I love what G.Na did right before the chorus with her, "Ooo~wouwo.." Changsub really shone in this performance. The meaning behind is what makes this song special, like, you can sing this song when something bad happens to you or people you're close with. By the way, who else notice that Yoseob was the only one wearing jacket? So cute..

4. "First Snow and First Kiss" - with Chae Daniel (DMTN), 2010
Daniel and Yoseob's angelic voices turn into one of the best winter song I've ever heard. Everyone knows that Yoseob and Daniel were best friends during their trainee days in MBoat. First I snickered when Yoseob was mistaken as the younger one. Then I squealed when they were aegyo-ing during the photoshoot. Then I really felt like I met my first love on the snowy streets while listening the first chorus. Then I teared up when Daniel cried after Yoseob left the recording studio. Finally, I fell out laughing when I heard Yoseob's laugh at the end of the video. Aaah..only this song can make me go from happy to sad to happy again so fast.
I'm really touched by their friendship. 'The good old days' vibe from these photos.. I can't even.. .__.
Too bad, Daniel didn't make it. In 2013, he got involved in a scandal (consuming and distributing marijuana). Fast forward, in 2014, the court decided to send him back to America .__.

3. "Love Day" - with Jung Eunji (A Pink), 2012
Cuteeeeeee.. That's what this collab is like. Yoseob and Eunji, my king and queen <3 This song sounds like it was made for Yoseob and Eunji. If you want to know more about my thought on this, I have already wrote it in here (but unfortunately it's in Indonesian). Meanwhile, you can enjoy the music video. Warning: full of fluffiness and might induce diabetes.

2. "I Remember" - with Bang Yongguk (B.A.P.), 2011
I very much need Yongguk and Yoseob to be on stage performing this live ASAP. This is a very BADASS song! This song is opened with a beautiful piano playing. From there, it goes full on hip-hop with a touch of rock and meaningful lyrics. Yoseob's strong and melodic voice combined with Yongguk's powerful rap is a cool combo! I was like "Woah!" during this 3,5 minute-long-song. Don't you want to see Yoseob singing this badass song live? I know you do.
Yoseob and pre-debut Yongguk. I love the fact that they're the same age with Yoseob is just three months older than Yongguk.
1. "Corre" - with Kim Sunggyu (Infinite) and Yoo Youngjae (B.A.P.), 2014
(The official video with the actual Spanish song lyrics is blocked here, you can watch it right from KBSKpop Youtube channel)
Feels like I'm watching a collab from heaven. You can see how this performance touched the heart of the Mexican audience. Just imagine, thousands of people sang their hearts out. My favorite parts are Youngjae's "ya~ ya me lo se" at 1:53, Sunggyu's "verdad" at 2:29 and ultimately Yoseob's "corazo~n" at 2:02. Gosh, it's amazing how Yoseob changed his vocal register so effortlessly. 
Beside the three seemed to be absorbed to the song, were you also mesmerized by Youngjae's beautiful eyes? How about adorable Sunggyu enjoying the song by bobbing his head? Were you swoooned by Yoseob's warm smile to Youngjae when he walked to the center stage? Or by Yoseob's glassy eyes and his oh-so-sweet smile at the end of the performance? Or by the sight of a Beauty and a Baby (B.A.P.'s fandom name) sitting side by side when the camera paned out? Those are the tiny details that makes this performance so precious.

- Whoever Yoseob's partner in duet, Yoseob always seems like the younger one.
- I ship Yoseob with every younger single female singer he collaborates with.
- If Yoseob wasn't in BEAST, maybe he would choose to be a rock singer (and be a very good one).
- Yoseob's smile is the most precious thing in the world.
Okay, fellow kpoppers, that's all. It would be lovely if you could tell me which collabs are your favorites in comment sector. Happy kpopping and good day (^o^)
