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. 😛
B.A.P. [Best Absolute Perfect]
+Boy group from TS Entertainment
“Fierce image caught my attention, especially their strong stage performance”
Music Video: “Power”
+Debuted under SM Entertainment following Super Junior composed of 13 members. Largest member and grandest group to debut this year so far.
“Got my attention since they debuted from one of the biggest company in Korea. My fave member is D.O. who owns a powerful voice.”
+Under Pledis Entertainment
“Aside from the fact they belong in the same company with Afterschool, I liked this group because of their girly, goddess image that reminds me of Kara”
Music Video: “Hello Venus”
SPICA [The Brightest Stars]
+Debuted under B2M Entertainment.
“Strong powerful voice. Not your ordinary pretty face girl group. I just love each of the members possess a beautiful strong voice and even often sings live.”
How about you guys?
It’s been a long time since I posted about a new kpop idol group. My last post was probably about Orange Caramel which is still my fave until now. So I got into this new idol group because of their fierce ‘image’. Based on physical looks and voices, they’re the same with the rest of the rookie idols. So I’m loving this group right now though I can’t identify which is which, lols. With a lot of boy and girl groups debuting right now it’s really difficult to identify their faces. Nobody so far stand out. Best luck to this guys, I hope they won’t change their image from fierce to cutesy and girly. ROFL.
B.A.P. stands for Best, Absolute and Perfection
Everyone’s eyeing on the rocking bunny! lols.
