It's about Kpop!

Oh!-pinion

Is T-ara not worth it over the years?

Bad news all around for Queens (T-ara fans) the 8 turned 7 member group T-ara is facing probably the biggest havoc in their career as hallyu idols. T-ara debuted as a 6 member group composing of leader So Yeon, Jiyeon, Eunjung (former leader), Hyomin, Boram, Ahreum, and Qri last 2009. Three years later, with the new member Hwayoung who gave them a better spotlight got kicked out of the group resulted in increasing anti-fans.

I like T-ara a lot because of their beautiful music, great choreography, fantastic music video storyline and most of all because of Hwayoung. Her rapping skills are excellent and full of emotions. I love
“Day by Day” and “We were in love” because of her rap part.

Unfortunately, for some unknown reason, a mishap occurred regarding t-ara’s relationship within themselves and with the company that costs the CEO to end Hwayoung’s contract as part of the group. This controversy is making headlines in Kpop. Speculations and rumors are the only visible factors believed in by many fans as to why Hwayoung left the group. Core Content Media is the company handling these girls and made an official statement on behalf of this issue.

“Gosh, can’t wait for August to arrive where T-ara pursues their comeback amidst controversy while the investigation on the sudden exit of Hwayoung continues.”

Bullied. The big “B” word is like a whistle blower to fans and to the CEO Kim Kwang Soo. It all started out with Jiyeon, Hyomin, Eunjung tweeting something about “will” that was interpreted as a teasing manner to their fellow member Hwayoung. In return, Hyoyoung, Hwayoung’s twin tweeted on cheering Hwayoung about it. Hwayoung was unable to perform with the group due to her leg injury which caused a huge problem to the rest of the girls and the company. During their concert, Hwayoung wasn’t allowed to perform but because she really wanted to, she was only allowed during their “Day by Day” performance.  In my opinion, the twits meant nothing about the girls having to carry on with the concert without Hwayoung. Their twits meant something about Respect, determination and will. It makes me want to think that since the old members strongly oppose additions to their group, they’re bullying Hwayoung by telling her to show more and work hard since she’s the newest member. Remember way back when they were promoting “Lovey Dovey”? and Hwayoung had that nipple slip accident?. Rumors has it that CCM wanted Hwayoung to do it and the t-ara members disagree but still Hwayoung did the nipple slip. This makes me think that she’s been hated a lot since then. Aside from this, netizens dig up more unnoticed bullying incidents by the members to Hwayoung. Bullying is the factor seen by fans according to what they’ve seen on TV shows and what they’ve digged up that caused the company to kick Hwayoung out.

I’ve read an article that everything was totally fine during their Budokan concert. It was only when they came back to South korea for their Music Bank performance when Hwayoung stubbornly refused to perform on stage when there’s only 2 group performers left before them. This incident was the only stated reason by CEO Kim kwang Soo about Hwayoung’s negative behaviour. According to their official statement, members are not bullying Hwayoung and it’s not the reason why they ask her to quit T-ara.

Upon hearing this horrible issues, it’s not impossible for the company to do such acts like what happened to Open World Entertainment wherein they ask their idols to harass their trainees. Each company has a secret to success and I never thought that T-ara is one of the victims. Until now, it’s still a puzzle to me why Hyomin, Jiyeon, Boram, So Yeon and Eunjung hate Hwayoug so much. There should be something aside from the thought that she was added to the group. You can’t hate a person forever right? CCM could make another group idol but chose to add members to existing group.

hwayoung

hwayoung

Here is my brief view and guess behind what’s happening to t-ara; Warning! this is merely my understanding and interpretation on what’s happening to t-ara.

Hwayoung is the newest member of t-ara and to be noticed quickly, because of her will and determination, she needs to do what the company asks her. Because of following their orders, she’s hated by her groupmates. Hwayoung probably had done things that upset her group. It’s either they care for hwayoung or they care about their name t-ara. When the bullying matter exploded it’s only a matter of time before something or somebody gets busted. So for the company to clear out their name before all of this happen, they kicked hwayoung out of the group. Turned their back on her by explaining that she has misbehaved or has bad attitudes. Hwayoung also knows the secrets, so by the time that she speaks, she’s out of t-ara and the company could sue her without damaging T-ara’s name. it would be difficult for them to shut her mouth if she’s still in the group since t-ara’s name would be affected and they’re one of the important idols coz they’re bringing in a lot of cash to their company because of their popularity.

On top of it all, below are the facts with mysterious reasons about T-ara and CCM.

Eunjung, Jiyeon, Hyomin, So Yeon and Boram bullying Hwayoung.

CCM decided to end Hwayoung’s contract due to her behaviour. (when she refused to perform on stage)

I support T-Jinyo by the way! Demanding truths!!

Jo kwon (2AM) reminds me of Adam Lambert!

Adam Lambert & Jo Kwon

Our favorite funny badass leader of 2AM recently debuted with a solo album. Yeah, another kpop idol luckily chosen to have a solo, a member spotlight indeed. 2Am is a kpop Idol Ballad group and Jo Kwon is the leader. Can’t you believe it? Jo Kwon’s going solo image for his album is far beyond from his innocent-gentle-image group. But not totally, Jo Kwon promoted 2 songs “I’m da One” with a sweet image contrasting to “Animal” diva and fierce. I just LOVE Jo Kwon’s concept for this song “Animal” which reminds me of Adam Lambert. It’s like Jo kwon is the Kpop version of the American idol singer Adam lambert.

I am incredibly amazed in his “Animal” performance, showcasing his talent. Jo Kwon absolutely has a sweet voice and dances very well but not only that. He can dance in high heels and without heels! One of the latest weird hit shoe fashion trend is wearing a high heels without heels. Funny that only Jo Kwon can pull it off very well. ^_^ Kpop’s Ssanti King!

ok, showing to you guys one of the reasons why I LOVE Jo Kwon;

2012 Kpop Rookies, who do you like so far?

Hello fellow Kpop Addicts!

2012. four short years after I discovered kpop music. Since then, my music lifestyle changed. As long as I like the tune, the beat, the rhythm, and anything else music has to offer I’d surely love it even if I don’t understand the song. Before, aside from English, the only international artist I listened to were T.A.T.U. and Belinda Peregrin. But right after I listened to Wonder Girls, everything has changed. I’ve been listening to Kpop eversince. My playlist are usually named English and Korean. I can’t believe four years has passed. It seems yesterday that I was listening to Wonder Girl’s Nobody and Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry. So for 2012, companies including the big three (YG, SM, JYP) are debuting girls and boy groups everywhere. (yeah, like a rain!) I really don’t dig rookies debuting and making a scene everywhere unless they are that popular. When I get to be familiar with their group, mentioned in articles or connected to big companies and other idols that’s when I try to listen to their music. See if I’ll like them. I wanna share  some groups that has just debuted this year that got my attention, worth watching for. And maybe the next Super Junior, TVXQ, SNSD, Wonder Girls and Big Bang.

NU’EST [New Establish Style and Tempo]

+First boy group of Pledis Entertainment (afterschool, Son Dambi).

“I like their songs which are FACE and ACTION; inspiring and encouraging. Ren is my fave member because of his pretty boy look. If F(X) has Amber, Nu’est has Ren. 😛

So Nyu Shi Dae’s TaeTiSeo (Girl’s Generation first Sub Unit)

TaeTiSeo - Twinkle

TaeTiSeo – Twinkle

After years of successfully promoting their music as a 9-member girl group, Girls Generation has finally followed the footsteps of their sunbaes, Super Junior. They now have a sub unit with 3 members comprising of Taeyon(leader), Tiffany and Seohyun(maknae). Three of the most members with powerful voices, but where is Jessica?. TaeTiSeo is named after the member’s first name syllable, TAEyon, TIffany, and SEOhyun. They all got powerful voices which is the asset of this group. Girls Generation is composed of Taeyon, Tiffany, Seohyun, Jessica, Sunny, Sooyoung, Hyoyeon, Yuri and Yoona. TaeTiSeo’s first single is “Twinkle”

S.M. Entertainment’s official press release regarding the group stated that the subunit’s intention was to “grab the attention of fans with all aspects of music, performance, and fashion styles. Also hinting at the possibility of future subunits containing other members, elaborating, “by changing the members of the unit according to the music and concept of each new subunit album.”  – wikipedia

Personally I never thought that SM Entertainment would make a sub unit of Girls Generation. I mean, why do they have to when all of the members are obviously popular? They don’t need sub units. Other groups having  sub units are Super Junior, After School, Rainbow, etc. I remember way back  Tiffany’s comments on Suju’s having sub units compared to Girls Generation. She said Girls Generation are one and don’t need subgroups. lols. Click here if you wanna see it.

Nu’est “Face” on the Block!

NU'EST
Fat Cat, B.A.P. and now, Nu est. My newest liked rookie boy group. Like I said, I don’t usually get excited for new boy/girl groups out there unless if they’re from YG Entertainment. When it comes to companies, I like YG Entertainment the most coz they treat their idols stars like a family and none of the idols has resigned from the groups unlike other companies (JYP, DSPmedia, & SME).

soloist Fat Cat and B.A.P.

Why I love Nu’est? I love their song, it’s catchy and this time, it’s not about love. It signifies broken friendship. Kpop is sooo addicted on making all kinds of love songs; heartbreaks, goodbyes, have-a-secret-crush-on-you song, happy love songs, betrayal, etc. (the list goes on)
To elaborate more on what I mean, here’s an example on the current kpop songs:

*Ailee “Heaven” – Boyfriend she lost. (I think the guy died) She was able to move on with her life without him.
*F.T. Island “Severely” – Severe love to his girlfriend, even risking his life for her.
*2AM “I wonder If You Hurt Like Me” – the guy is heartbroken, hurting more than his ex-girlfriend
*Nine Muses “Ticket” – one way ticket to girl’s heart
*Miss A “Touch” – Touched by her love
*Dal Shabet “Hit U” – girl hates the guy and wants to hurt him like he hurt her

*BigBang “Blue” – blue love

Aside from idols having their comebacks, what thrills me most is the story of the song they’re going to sing. Which is why I love 2NE1, most of their songs implies girl power over guys! peace!

Nu’est got my attention when Kahi (afterschool) congratulated them on their debut. They are from 1993’s-1995’s, so young and so cute guys!
Check out Nu’est debut song “Face” and their debut live performances.

Who is Ailee? Ai-love-her!

Ailee
I’m an ALLKPOP reader since 2008, the year where I fell in love with Kpop Music. Since then, I read their interesting articles every spare time I had. Does anybody know Ailee? Well, I dunno much about her but she’s definitely rocking her name everywhere with her strong, powerful voice. If I’m not mistaken, she first became a contestant on some Korean Music Show before debuting. In allkpop, I anticipate each live show performances every week but I don’t usually watch perfs from singers I don’t like especially those who just debuted. I get only to watch them if they do really gets my attention like their names are usually posted by allkpop, soompi or even in facebook.

So I clicked on Ailee’s debut live performance and totally fell in love with her music! Her fierceful voice is far from that of IU’s. Well, they shouldn’t be compared coz IU’s concept image is far from Ailee. IU is more on a cutesy side than Ailee. Oh, and I remembered, (Fat Cat is also a soloist trying to sport that cute image.) I love Ailee’s song “Heaven” especially the Music video! I love the guy who played Ailee’s lover! Everytime I listen to her music, the guy’s image flash into my mind and the beautiful choreography Ailee had for this song.

For all Kpop lovers out there, Ailee is definitely a talent we all would surely love, pretty face and a powerful voice. ^__^

Kpop’s Dal Shabet “Star Pictorial” in Cebu, Philippines

As what the title says, yup Pinoy Dal Shabet fanatics. They’ve discreetly have had their pictorial here in Cebu (my city) last November 21, 2011. I was in awe when I read the news regarding the Star Hwabo Press Conference held in korea where Dal Shabet attendend. I honestly NEVER thought that a korean kpop idol group would come here secretly to take just a bunch of photos. I remorse to that! They’re not the only kpop artist who went here secretly. (Talking about F.T. Island who had a video shoot for their music video) If I had known I would’ve take a peek and snag a picture of them with me. JK. I’ve been to the resort and it’s pretty nice with all that natural-beauty-look. I got interested with the news because their debut song “Supa Dupa Diva” is my alarm clock tone until now (incredibly). I just realized that I’ve been using a single tune for my alarm tone for almost a year. And as a Kpop fan, that’s a record for Dal Shabet. I hardly even know these girls, I just got addicted to their catchy song and dance moves! IF they’ll release another catchy song, I’ll totally love them for sure and be one of their fans. The other interesting side of this girls is that they named their fans “Darling” which happens to be my Nickname – Darling. lols. Read along the post and learn more about this awesome girls.

Dal Shabet Profile:

Dal Shabet (Hangul: 달샤벳), stylized as Dal★Shabet, is a South Korean girl group created by E-Tribe through their label Happy Face Entertainment. The members include Viki (Leader), Serri, Ah Young, Jiyul, GaEun and Subin (Maknae). On January 3, 2011, Dal Shabet released their debut music video, “Supa Dupa Diva”, making them the first girl group to debut in 2011.

An article from Soompi:

Dal Shabet Glam up for “Star Pictorial”

The six charming ladies of Dal Shabet recently participated in “Star Pictorial,” a photoshoot service that’s more like a box present of pictures for fans.

Filmed in Cebu, Philippines, the girls showed a wide array of images from “Bling Bling” cute to lovely, and even alluring and sexy, making full use of the beautiful scenery at their disposal. They also gave a nod to the upcoming holiday season by dressing themselves in fun Christmas-themed accessories for a “Christmas party in Summer” theme.

Since the girls are usually known for their cuter image on stage, fans were excited to see the girls take on a feistier look, accomplished by dramatic eyelashes, punky looks, and form-fitting dresses.

“They filmed in the sweltering heat outside, but the members maintained their upbeat energy all throughout,” the producers satisfyingly said.

2NE1 to make their comeback in September!

2ne1

2NE1

It’s been a long time coming but they’re here now – well, almost. YG Entertainment’s butt kicking girl group 2NE1 is set to make their comeback next month with their first full length album, To Anyone!

Big daddy YG (aka Yang Hyun Suk) surprised fans with a big slap in the face as he put up a post on the YG Entertainment homepage titled ‘Message from YG’. It’s quite a long passage but to sum it up, 2NE1 will be returning on September 9th with a 12 track album titled To Anyone. Six of the tracks will be brand new with four being their past digital singles and an additional two bonus tracks.

3 of the tracks will be title tracks and the MVs for them all will be out at midnight on September 9th together with the album. There will be no teasers at all.

It’s also been reported that the girls traveled to LA and London to work with Black Eyed Peas leader Will.I.Am in order to create the music on their album. Apparently he was given the chance to see one of their videos and almost immediately decided that he wanted to help produce their work.

In addition, plans for them to debut in America are undecided as yet, but they will expand into Japan early next year. They’re looking to debut 2NE1 in America in the future and will consult mainly with Will.I.Am, but for now they’re sticking to Korea and Japan.

Also, 2NE1TV Season 2 will be shown in September instead.

Lots of more exciting stuff is bound to be headed our way so be sure to stay tuned!

source:  shockimpulse@allkpop

YEY! After learning that they REALLY work with wil.i.am of Black eyed peas, I have a strong feeling that their song would surely be a MASSIVE HIT!. FYI: black eyed peas is one of the highest earning band according to Forbes. I’m a BEP fan, and i love all of their songs. Since from the start, i always love listening to their song coz everything seems to be catchy… Minzy even danced to one of their hit song “I’mma be” and “Boom Boom Pow”.. I just wish they won’t advance to american market yet, not now..  They only did 1 mini album so far…


Lovin’ Nine Muses.. Sexy and Hot Rookie Girl Group

Nine muses

Nine Muses

Nine Muses is a nine-member girl group from ZE:A’s agency, Star Empire Entertainment. Other than Park Min Ha from ZE:A’s MV, another girl from the group is Lee Hyun Joo, who won 2007’s Super Model. (FYI: ZE:A are rookie boy group who have 9 members, same with Nine Muses)

Here is the rumored list of the rest of the members’ profiles, excluding Park Min Ha. (Name, Year of Birth, Height)

They debuted yesterday in Music Bank.

See? They’re hot and sexy.  But they can’t really sing a high pitch song. Probably there’s one though. I just like these girls coz they so adorable and flirtatious.  They have that model image and i’m glad that they’re old. (unlike GP Basic, very young yet acting like adults). I was mesmerized by their body figures, no short members, and their average height is 5’6 that’s around 170 cm. Other reason why i like them is that they didn’t lip synch like most of the girl group does especially when they debut. I just wish that they won’t be hated that much by other fans because they’re 9.

Also, everyone’s pretty!. Good luck to you girls!!

I say “NO!” to GP Basic… stop the crap

GP Basic

GP Basic

Like what the title says, it’s definitely a NO to GP Basic’s adult-like-dance-inspired-by-Justin-Beiber.

This is a protest!

What the hell is wrong with the company releasing babies singing Britney’s “I’m a Slave for you…”??

(technically, that’ not what the girls of GP Basic sang,..but it’s more like it) They debuted with their album and song “GAME”.  this makes me wanto to laugh. They still have lot of things yet to learn, to experience and to enjoy not working their asses off trying to get an impression from the music industry of Korea, especially to fans. (They should probably play GAMES instead) At their young age, their body’s already abused, you know what i mean? sleepless nights practicing to sing wearing KILLER HEELS??.  They’re not even 18! and the average age of their member is 15! HSh*t.

Ok, so here’s their debut music video with the song “game”.

@_@

so what can you say?

The song, it’s auto tune but still catchy… i prefer “marry had a little lambs”

Their choreography? WOAH! They’re dancing like adults!, they even have that chest popping moves! and Janey (around 11-13 yrs. old) doesn’t even have them yet. No mountains and forests. XD

oh yeah, well, here’s the good part. though they’re still young, i kinda like them still because maybe they didn’t undergo any surgery or something, but yeah maybe they did (or so i thought). Because of this group, my interests to SNSD just increased. I’m just glad they didn’t do this thing when they debuted, they had that school girl image while GP Basic’s having that adult-image.. pity.

FYI: it’s not only me whose against this group’s debut image. Here are some more comments I found over at youtube.

Okay, like the song, but I’m going to rant now.

GP Basic girls, please don’t chest pop. I had enough with 4minute Hyuna and 2NE1 Minzy, and they’re not even legal yet.

They’re cool, but don’t you think Janey seem out of place with colorful clothes?

And what’s with the auto tune?? Although I like that kind of sound, but this is too much, oy! They shouldn’t use it for the whole song!

I’m done ranting. You can thumb down this comment if you don’t like it.

Thumb me down if you don’t like my comment.

arent they too young? at least Hyunah looked mature. well maybe they need more experience then we’ll see them in a different angle

i like their voice (they could still improve) and the choreography…but the popping and the thrusting…i just don’t think so….is that even legal…. and did i just hear her say “who wanna get f***ed up?” at the very beginning?

they should concentrate more on their studies…

and they are too young that they even don’t have the charisma of girls….

overall,they are too young…

Well, i’m not really that all anti to this group, it’s just that they should try at LEAST to promote a song that fits their age. Be like Orange caramel, all that girly and cutey image.. That way, they’ll probably get more supporters than haters.  Boa is also young like them when she debuted but she sported the image right for her age^_^

-ciao!

I like Miss A, JYP Entertainment’s Newest Girl Group

Miss A (Fei, Min, Jia & Suzy)

I’m lovin’ this girl group right now, Miss A – Made in Asia, from JYP entertainment. JYP entertainment is one of the biggest company in South Korea holding the biggest stars today like Wonder Girls, 2pm & 2am. I like Miss A, they’re different from the rest of the girl groups. When I like a group, it’s more on their talents, singing and dancing capability rather than their physical features. There are so many girl groups today, that even though they existed for more than 2 years, they can’t REALLY dance nor sing well live on stage. (but they became famous thoug because of their growing fanbase). I just wish Miss A will win a mutizen award, that’ll make them stand out from the rest of the groups who just debuted today (infinite, teen top, sistar, Girl’s day, etc.) Every week, I always anticipate their performance from Mnet Countdown, Music Core, Music Bank & SBS Inkigayo.  They never fail my expectations everytime they perform.

Here’s Miss A’s latest performance:

(SS501) Kim Hyun Joong Interviews in Philippines [english subbed)

Yay!. I’m back on Kim Hyun Joong updates after his successful concert with B2ST. Kim Hyun Joong appeared in various shows on GMA and had a few interviews while he was in Manila.  I’m thankful that Kim Hyun Joong & B2st came here in the Philippines. I’m just into SS501 right now, and i’m soo happy to hear their leader coming here although I won’t be able to see him.  The first thing he said when he arrived was that he love the fresh scent of the place. lols. So cute of him to say that^_^

Below are the videos about Kim Hyun Joong:

Now on my comments:

Among all the interviews he had, none of them said anything about him as playing one of the lead role in the famous drama “Boys Over Flowers”. In my opinion, he wouldn’t be that famous without that drama here, even though there are SS501 fans (Triple S). It’s just a sad fact that the hosts can’t say it live on air on how much the Filipinos loved his drama “Boys Over Flowers”. Even so, I hope they were able to tell Kim Hyun Joong about that off-cam. We are happy that another korean celebrity has visited the Philippines, so we are also looking forward not only to their interviews but also on how the hosts treated them. How the MC’s made them feel that they are really popular here in the Philippines.  I just hate it when I hear them mentioning Kim Hyun Joong’s name in a disrespectul way (or so I think). They keep on calling him “Kim” which is his family name.  And for me, it ain’t right. FYI, in Korea, saying the family name alone is very disrespectful, it should be the full name with Mr/Ms. or the Given name.  It’s not only me who got annoyed by this fact, watch those vids on youtube and you’ll see a lot of fans hurt because of the hosts calling Kim Hyun Joong “Kim”.  It’s not hard to pronounce “Hyun Joong” right?.  For the Host’s mistake not to happen again, they should do a research and learn to respect.  All of the interviews done by Kim Hyun Joong are from GMA by the way.

Just like ABS-CBN, when 4Minute performed in Wowowee, Mariel (the host of Wowowee), though having a hard time pronouncing their names did her best to say it in the right and respectful manner. So I say, GMA, do your research and learn from ABS-CBN


Wonder Girls “2 Different Tears” Compilation

credits: CR15C0

A compilation of Wonder girls live performances for their song “2 Different Tears”. This is one of the reasons why I love kpop. Their stages & outfits only appear for about 4 minute and they never use it again. Kpop group performs 4 times a week in different stations (Mnet, KBS, MBC and SBS), every week there are around 20 performers. So in a span of 1 week, there’s 80 different stages & outfits. In a month there are 320 huge stages made. WOAH! so where are they keeping all those things?. Kpop is A-MAZING

I miss the wonder girls so much. ATM, they’re still promoting their songs in America & in Asia. Since they debuted in America, I notice that many fansites are closing probably because wonder girls are out in Korea which means less updates.


2 Different Tears – Wonder Girls MV [review]

The Wonder Girls are back!

Yey! They’re officialy back with a new song entitled “2 different tears” and with new member Hye Lim. I miss Sun Mi and it’s so sad to see WG’s new mv without her. Anyways, life must go on!. Hye Lim, somehow reminds me of Sun mi, her voice is like the combination of sohee’s and sun mi’s. I like her though she got a lot of haters when she joined wg, she’s good in speaking english and chinese (her english is even more fluent that Yenny). During their english interviews, it’s always Yenny who speaks a lot, but the one who’s good in it is Hye Lim. They should put more spotlight on Lim, sinc she’s new.^_^.

I like their new song “2 different tears”, sounds almost the same with their bad boy song.  But I don’t like their MV, I don’t like the Alien spy concept thingy… I like their costume for their new song, it’s more colorful than in their nobody concept. My fave is Yenny’s costume, blue glitters that matches to her nails^_^. I hope they’re going to release more songs soon! I prefer 3 different songs in korean than 3 songs in different languages.

Can’t wait for their comeback!. Looking forward to their costumes especially the WIGS!!

Enjoy the video^_^
