Today is Shim Hongseob’s 18th birthday (19th in korean age). He is a member of the korean boy group 24K (they are under Choeun Entertainment) in which he is a vocalist, lead dancer, rapper and maknae.
Hongseob debuted last year, along with member Changsun with 24K’s first release in 2016 – the track Still 24K. They weren’t part of the original line-up. After members Daeil and Sungoh went on hiatus, Changsun and Hongseob were added to keep a 7-member line-up. Later that year, 24K released FINALLY their 1st full-length album The Real One featuring the title track BINGO.
Check out the music videos below!
Happy birthday to our sweet, sweet maknae! 24K is currently in Warsaw, Poland for the 4th show in their Europe Tour Still With 24U. Hope Hongseob spends a lovely day there!
Wish them all the luck for their upcoming events and can’t wait to see them live in 2 days here in Lisbon omgjsfJHDFKJD
Surprise Surprise, thought you’d seen the last of 2NE1 didn’t you?
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!
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
If you say ex KARA members, you are mean and the answer is no.
MY POINT IS
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
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
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 Tu, but 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 ♥♥
Who else is still recovering from the hot debuts that happened last October? I’m talking about PENTAGON and SF9 here. I was already longing for PENTAGON’s debut since Pentagon Maker, but SF9 was love at first sight aswell. My one problem is that I haven’t had the time to sit down and look up these guys closely and actually get to know what they’re like – honestly this is my favorite part of beginning to stan an artist. It has also been quite difficult to get familiar with their faces and names, specially because they’re rookies so there aren’t many good HQof them out there yet. I figured maybe some of you could be struggling with this aswell so I thought about gathering the neatest and fairest HQs of each members of these groups I could find so we can all finally get to know them! This post will be dedicated to PENTAGON.
I noticed one thing while gathering these…. WE NEED MORE SHIN WON HQs!!!!!!!!
Today is Kim Gayoung’s 25th birthday (26th in korean age). Gayoung is a member of the korean girl group Stellar (they are under The Entertainment Pascal, Shinhwa’s Eric’s label) in which she’s a visual, lead vocalist, main rapper and leader.
Gayoung debuted with Stellar in August 28th, 2011 with the song Rocket Girl; she was part of the original line-up.
Here are some of Stellar’s hits and latest releases!
don’t wanna sound biased or anything STING IS SUCH A BOP GO LISTEN TO IT RN
Honestly speaking, there isn’t much to tell about Gayoung because, as sad as it is to admit it, Stellar isn’t particularly popular. Sure, they’ve dropped bops, a bunch of them, but for some reason the audience doesn’t seem to acknowledge them? These girls have gone through so many hardships and their disband sounds like an explosive waiting for the timer to go off. I don’t want this post to sound like I’m begging for you to pay attention to this group, but it really breaks my heart to see their talent go to waste.
How about we show our leader Gayoung some love today? ♥
