Good news: boy bands are back. Better news: They’re giving Justin Bieber a run for his money.
One Direction is the English-Irish pop group made up of five fresh-faced prep-school types responsible for the second British Invasion. These heartthrobs, like their 1960s predecessors, are breaking adolescent hearts around the globe with their wholesome, catchy songs, and moppy hairstyles.
One Direction’s clean-cut image is refreshing, and their healthy, fun-loving attitude is well, cute. With five personalities adding variety to the show, 1D presents a sort of Seven Dwarves scenario, as pointed out by Time Magazine: “Horan is the ‘cute little Irish one,’ Malik is the ‘quiet and mysterious one,’ Payne is ‘the sensible one,’ Styles is ‘the charming one’ and Tomlinson is ‘the funny one.’”
It’s nice to have a decent act take center stage for once, and as The Telegraph points out, “What could be better than one cute boy, if not five?”
