January 8th, it’s Topp Dogg’ B-Joo’s birthday 😀

65b1b190ab3db9dfadce936ed5e735e9

Today is Kim Byung Joo’s 23rd birthday (24th in korean age). He is a member of the korean boy group Topp Dogg (they are under HUNUS Entertainment) in which he is a vocalist and dancer.

Fun fact: during pre-debut days, B-Joo was a backup dancer for EvoL!

Sadly, there is still a whole bunch of people sleeping on Topp Dogg. I can’t believe people let their last comeback flop like that, it was so good (≖_≖ ) Hopefully, more people will acknowledge them next time… Or at least acknowledge B-Joo and his vocals!!

Wishing him a very happy birthday~!

🎁 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, B-JOO

NOT OVER YET

Surprise Surprise, thought you’d seen the last of 2NE1 didn’t you?
2ne1_in_melon_music_awards
2NE1 are coming back for their definite last release GOOD BYE. The song is finished and the MV has been filmed already.

However, this is not as pretty as it seems. Apparently, this track GOOD BYE was originally supposed to be CL’s new US release. Though this is just rumor, there is already loads of people commenting it.

Personally, I hope this is only a rumor indeed. I think it’s great that they are getting together one last time to gift this to their fans, but if that’s the story behind the song, doesn’t it brush off the whole special meaning of this?

Regardless, I’m excited about this upcoming release. Can’t wait to see what 2NE1 have prepared as a final gift for their fans!

NOT OVER YET

READY, SET, ISAC!

Another year, another championship!img_20170106_090124

It has been announced that the 2017 ISAC are a go! Recording is set to happen on January 16th and airing date hasn’t been announced yet. Above are the groups scheduled to take part on this edition. Please note that I’m not sure if this is the final line-up.

I was looking forward to see KARD… Guess these co-ed kings and queens still have a few things to overcome… BUT THEY WILL GET THERE

Just one question… is ALL of NCT going to take part in this? I mean NCT U has what 6 members? Uhhh Taeil, Taeyong, Ten, Doyoung, Jaehyun, Mark. Yeah 6. Then it’s NCT 127 whis has 9 members but you gotta exclude Taeil, Taeyong, Jaehyun, Doyoung and Mark which make 5 so, 4 members. NCT Dream is 7 members but excluding  Mark and Haechan its only 5 so there are 15 members… Eh now that I did the math it’s not such an extraordinary number but it’ll probably only be NCT 127 or perhaps NCT 127 + NCT U. I don’t see NCT Dream taking part in this, SM likes to keep the kids in the dungeon. We’ll see though! Are you excited about this year’s ISAC?

Check out my posts about past years’ ISACs!

READY, SET, ISAC!

ok sry im ok

NOT

This was me less than 2 months ago

BUT NOW HERE WE ARE OMGNG

Alright, on to the review!

This song Limitless is the title track for NCT 127’s – NCT sub-unit – most recent comeback. It is part of the album NCT #127 – LIMITLESS – The 2nd Mini Album.

Starting with the MV, which you kinda can watch here 😀

Nobody really knew what to expect, considering the messed up teasers, but the truth is, the MV was just as confusing. Apart from that, aesthetic 1000000% on point. Perfect balance between dancing scenes and actual mv scenes. The only thing I have to point out is the terrible distribuition of screen time. I mean, try comparing Yuta’s screen time to Mark’s and you’ll understand what I’m talking about

As for the song itself, HELL YES

Overall it’s such an amazing track I don’t even know where to turn. I’m not going to lie, I got a bit worried after Taeyong’s #2 teaser… I had no clue about the song and suddenly we’re introduced to that, somewhat particular, line in Taeyong’s rap with a, somewhat particular, vocal hum,… skill?

I love how in the song there are so many different moments… I mean, the song isn’t repetitive at all. It resembles the music video in a way that, there are no repetitive scenes. The overall theme is there and the song is consistent and well built, but it never gets boring and repetitive. Like I said, there are many different moments to it, making you feel differently about each one of them.

What makes me sad is that, with such a well-built track, whoever distributed the lines made a terrible job. Yeah, I know there are different roles to K-Pop members in a group, and normally who gets most lines takes less visible spots in choreographies but in this case it’s just too much.

Let’s look at Winwin. Yeah, he’s the main dancer and is often in the middle front, but throughout the whole song boy gets two lines which he doesn’t even get to sing on live peformances because of the audio effect. There is also Yuta, who gets one line, I repeat, one line. Sure, he gets to be in the middle aswell, but unlike Winwin who gets his fair share of screen time in the MV, Yuta barely even has that. Not even to mention JOHNNY. I mean, after all the hype I expected SM to be a bit more self-conscious and finally let the boy shine, but no, he got two lines. But hey, I’m already thankful for his debut.

There might be another way to interpretate this though, SM was defenitely aware of how much attention Johnny would get on this album and in order to balance that with the other 8 members, they tried to shift some of the spotlight back to other members.

However, Mark and Taeyong still got a heck of a lot of screen time/lines/middle or front spots in the choreo so yeah, there is still some work to be made.

In conclusion, I was absoluetely blown away with this track – as you might have noticed on the video – I noticed some major evolution since Fire Truck era and Doyoung has also improved a lot since The 7th Sense.

Once again I think I predicted a K-Pop event. Now I might just make a post begging for Hansol’s debut and it might just happen I mean WHO KNOWS

REVIEW | NCT 127 “LIMITLESS” COMEBACK – LITERALLY [UPDATED]

I KNEW IT

I LITERALLY GOOGLED “MYB DISBAND” TWO WEEKS AGO

myb-ddoddo-mv-teaser

No joke guys, I actually predicted their disbandment. Not because I disliked them or wanted them to disband, but myB weren’t able to grab a big audience to begin with and their following comeback went down the same way.

It’s not like groups go around disbanding every day, but I worry a lot about this due to the amount of groups we have out there these days. It’s simply impossible for everyone to achieve no.1 so it’s not surprising that at some point disbandments will be as frequent as debuts. I stan a lot of underrated groups so I often prepare myself for the worst, if the successful ones disband won’t the same happen to the others?

That’s why, about two weeks ago, I was listening to Ddo Ddo and suddenly realized it had already been a year or so since their comeback. Is it normal for rookies to take such a long break? Not really, these days, even if you’re debut was the ultimate bop and promotions got carried out for ten years, they’ll still make one or two close comebacks, that’s the only way the audience will remember them. That’s why I wondered about their disbandment. It turned out to be plain ass foreshadowing.

Moonhee and Hayoon remain in Maroo Entertainment and will debut with the companie’s upcoming girl group in January 2017. Is it just me who thinks it’s a bit too soon? For some reason, I can’t see it go well for these girls either… 😦

I KNEW IT

FINALLY FOUND YOU

I GOT MYSELF SHOOK OK

kpop-kard-dsp-media-debut-2016-ohnana

humm let’s just skip the part where I agressively fangirl over THIS LIT ASS BOMB DEBUT THAT THE ENITRE HUMANITY NEEDS TO ACKNOWLEDGE and go directly to the part where I ask you something stupid

What do these videos have in common?

If you say ex KARA members, you are mean and the answer is no.

MY POINT IS

ytghyjuguiguhjhg jhbhjbjkhuhuhuh

I don’t know about you but I got some hardcore feels for this guy last year after his performance with Goo Hara. Like seriously, have you seen that mv? Hum, do yourself a favor?

Every time I watched their performance  on music shows I’d think something like god are those sunglasses necessary i want to know what do you look like in case you show up somewhere else BC HUM YOU DANCE VERY WELL HAH but the punk never did. GLAD HE DIDNT THO

I have been following KARD since the first teasers were released so, trust me, if it wasn’t for him wearing sunglasses during their performance at the debut party I’d still be clueless right now.

Turns out, member BM aka Matthew Kim aka representative of the letter K in KARD was THAT guy, Goo Hara’s partner during Choco Chip Cookies promotions, the punk that never took off his sunglasses.

I found this so randomly, I was just watching their debut party performance and suddenly he popped out of nowhere and the god damn sunglasses gave it all away, I instantly went like HOLD THE FUDGE UP YOU ARE THAT GUY and for a split second my brain froze and i was like omfjhhdf he looks like him but it doesnt make much sense bc trainees dont go around collaborating with artists from others labeLSKJJFDJ WAIT GOO HARA MEANS KARA KARA MEANS DSP MEDIA DSP MEDIA MEANS KARD HOLY SHGUIDGYY

It’s so clear now

czocq12ukaexvm_

uygyugyuyygygu iuhuihujhuj

the guy was already serious bias material before debut what im i suppOSED TO DO NOW

p.s – ok if u still doubting me go ahead but its actually on wikipedia already lmao

FINALLY FOUND YOU

🎁 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SOWON UNNI

December 7th, it’s GFriend’s Sowon’s birthday~~

fotografia-9

Today is Kim So Jung’s (aka Sowon) 21st birthday (22nd in korean age). Sowon is a member of the korean girl group GFriend (they are under Source Music) in which she’s the leader, main rapper, vocalist and visual.

GFriend debuted on January 14th, 2015 with the single Glass Bead, you can watch it here.  If you’re into the K-Pop thing then you defenitely know how GFriend have killing the charts for quiet a while. Glass Bead didn’t receive much attention, which is common since it was debut single and they’re from a minor label. However, the summer of 2015 was deadass dominated by Me Gustas Tubut their real bop wasn’t dropped until Rough which collected about 15 wins on music shows. GFriend are now the korean girl group with the biggest amount of wins on music shows in a year, with a total of 29.

But enough of GFriend! This is dedicated to our leader Sowon 🙂

Sowon is the loving mother in GFriend. Seriously, she cares so much about her members, she’s so cautious and works so hard to keep the girls happy. Every girl group deserves a leader like her. She’s more the quiet kind of girl but can still can make others laugh. She’s very skilled, she has a beautiful voice, dances amazingly well and speaks korean and japanese. Sowon is also very popular because people consider her body to have the “golden ration”.

Fun fact, her stage name Sowon (소원) means “wish” in english :3

Happy birthday to our loving leader Sowon! Wish her to spend a wonderful day near her members and loved ones~ 언니 사랑해 ♥♥

🎁 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SOWON UNNI
