@2:25 – Jan Di, did you know that you’re really famous in the Philippines because of Boys over Flowers?

U-Kiss is composed of Alexander, Kevin, Dong Ho, Eli, Ki Bum, Hyun, and Ki Seob.

I just read around the internet that there’s already a girl group here in the philippines that has debuted. I searched for their identity and found an article about them. Please read this first to know them better.
Philippine pop music goes through a refreshing rebirth with the emergence of the newest girl group of five teenage scene with compelling charm, striking style and total talent.
Aptly, christened Pop Girls, the group is an outcome of the collaboration of two of the most influential names in the music industry-recording magnate Boss Vic del Rosario who was responsible for creating the biggest multimedia stars of the country such as Sharon Cuneta, Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Sarah Geronimo, among others; and topnotch dancer/choreographer Geleen Eugenio who honed the dancing skills of celebrities like Vilma Santos, Nora Aunor and brought Universal Motion Dancers to the peak of the their career.
Seeing the young as consistently plausible target, Boss Vic challenges Geleen to form a group of appealing young girls who are all exceptional in singing and dancing. Though she was set to leave for the US then, Geleen decided to forgo her initial plan to accept the project and called for an audition.
There were more than fifty hopefuls but only five passed the rigid screening. But the final decision came about when Boss Vic actually saw the chosen girls perform. He was swyaed right away with each of the girls that they were immediately awarded both management and recording contracts.
The fabulous five who make up POP GIRLS are twins Lai and Mar, both aged 16 and half Lebanese; Half Filipino, half Dutch Rose, 13 years old; Half Filipino, half Swiss Schai, 14 years old; the only pure Filipino in the group.
Though coming from various lineages, the girls perfectly jive together to form a melodic clique that is POP GIRLS. This impression is also very much in tune with the album the girls are now working on. Boss Vic has gathered renowed international producers Christian de Walden and Marcus Davis, along with local producer Civ Fontanilla, to pitch in their expertise to create one world class debut album.
The debut album echoes the sound that is distinctly POP GIRLS– youthful, sweet, light, infections… with catchy beat that would make everyone groove and uncomplicated lyrics that would make everyone sing along. The songs mirror the colorful life of the young with themes such as puppy love, shopping, dancing, and basically having fun!
Now nearing its final stage of completion, the album is composed of 13 tracks, mostly original ones such as Crazy For You, and upbeat song by Marcus and Amber Davis and Crushy, written by Geleen Eugenio herself. Also included are covers of hits such as Urong-Sulong and Kapag Tumibok Ang Puso.
POP GIRLS indeed is the new face of music and sound of Philippine Pop Music. The teenage group is undoubtedly at par,
or even better than the rest of the Asian groups which continue to invaded the music scene today. POP GIRLS seals the country’s rightful claim to P-POP as the new nickname for Philippine Pop Music to reflect the youthful flair of the group and the music, very much in the tradition of Korea’s K-Pop and Japan’s J-POP.
And as for LAi, Mar, Rose, Schai, and Nadine, these girls now become the new wholesome and well- educated trendsetters of the youth in the country, not only in terms of song, dance, and music but in personality and lifestyle as well.
Here is their first ever Music Video:
ok. Their video is funny. Really shows the filipino culture. It received praises from filipinos as well as negative feedbacks from filipino k-pop lovers. If you’re a k-po (korean pop) addict, you would surely understand what I’m trying to say. Just by watching the video, I can see that they’re trying to somewhat portray korean music and turn it into filipino-pop. Comment says that their music videois a copycat of 2ne1 & wonder girls. (Honestly, there were some parts that look the same with wonder girls and 2ne1’s music video).
In my opinion, i find the girls talented, bubbly, cheerful, girly and have a nice voice. They’re also very pretty although around three of them almost looks the same.But then, they lack rhythm in their choreography. Everybody can dance but not everybody dances together so it’s a dissapointment to some filipino k-pop fans expecting so much from them.
I would like to support these girls but they have to improve first in their choreography. Also, I wish they’ll perform without lip synching coz it’s not really good to watch. Seeing them performing and commiting many mistakes plus lipsynching.
btw, i really like their song ‘crazy crazy’. it’s catchy^__^
