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. 😛

Let’s learn about EXO-M

EXO-M

You probably wondered who is EXO-M right? and why are there 2 sub units of EXO. Well, if you have read my previous post, EXO means from ExoPlanet, divided into korean and Chinese group debuting and promoting same songs in 2 different nations. I’m a Kpop Fan, so I first got familiar with EXO-K. I couldn’t say which group is the best since they are from one band. There are who excels in dancing like Kai and singing like D.O. The Boys I’m loving from this group is Kai, D.O., Tao and Lu Han

Just my thought. I dunno how it goes in China when a singer/band is promoting a song but I do know that Exo-K will be promoting much more since they have to perform 4x a week in Korea’s big music shows which are Mnet, KBS, MBC and SBS. This means that Exo-K will get more exposure than Exo-M. (but remember, China is Big!)
