Mini Album Review: ‘Who Are You?’ by Kahi

I’m actually a devoted fan to the lovely and talented entertainer, constantly finding out what she’s up to via her twitter page. When I saw that Kahi was travelling quite a bit I figured more or less she was seeking inspiration—amidst relaxation—for her upcoming music.  More recently, she took a trip to Barcelona, Spain, which apparently hadn’t only been the setting for her latest music … Continue reading Mini Album Review: ‘Who Are You?’ by Kahi

Did You Hear?

Kahi will be “graduating” from her badass Kpop group After School. According to Pledis Entertainment, her label and management, as well as a ton of news outlet in South Korea, Kahi will be leaving the group to work on her solo career as well as her acting. Now, I don’t want to offend anyone but isn’t the reason why After School was so hot to begin with due to the presence of Kahi. I mean, she puts the fierceness in the group. And no one can pull dance moves off like she does. It’s definitely going to be hard to continue following After School now that Kahi’s leaving, but I’m sure true PLAYGIRLZ won’t waver their support. As for Kahi, I’ve always been a fan since her days as a  dancer & choreographer, and will continue to ride with her to the end. After all, she is and will always be ‘The Queen of Dance’. I just love her versatility, don’t you? 

Since the group’s formation the company did state that there would be a graduation system in place where members were free to leave as they choose to, but I’ve always considered this as a sugarcoated excuse for firing the members who don’t bank much for them. Well, just as they have the graduation system there’s also the admission part, Continue reading “Did You Hear?”

For Thought: Graduation System within a group?

Posted Image

EY readers by now should be able to figure out the evident fact that I like listening to the Kpop group AFTER SCHOOL, because of the many promo posts i’ve done on them. Recently, one of the members, Rebecca Kim, announced her “graduation” from the group and it led me to wonder about this particular system their label has set up and how it affects not only AFTER SCHOOL’s fans but the members as well. Apparently members can leave whenever they feel like it, and throughout the group’s lifetime new members were also added to keep their style and sound fresh. On one end this Continue reading “For Thought: Graduation System within a group?”

[Review] After School’s “Virgin”

afterschool-shampoo

Kpop girl group After School is making a comeback to the industry with their first full length album entitled “Virgin“. AS hasn’t released any new music since “Bang!” in 2010, and only the sub-units and other members have been doing any sort of promotion. You might remember Orange Caramel‘s “Bangkok Cityand Kahi‘s “Come Back You Bad Person“. While both solo projects were interesting and kept fans entertained, it’s good to see the group back as a whole and making great music for us. Check out my full album review below:

Spotlight – Kahi

Meet Kahi Park, a South Korean singer, dancer, songwriter and leader of Kpop group After School. Kahi is most notable for her fierce dancing and charismatic personality on music shows or performing among the other members of After School.

Kahi was born Ji-Young Park. She developed a passion for dancing as a teenager, and was influenced by hip hop and r&b music. She didn’t receive professional training due to strong objections by her family, but kept on dancing and improving her skills on her own. Kahi moved to Seoul, South Korea’s capital, despite her family’s disagreement to pursue an entertainment career. She landed a job as a back-up dancer while she was 18.

After School’s “Someone is You”

I’m completely inlove with After School‘s “Someone is You“, from their “Love Love Love” single album. I have no idea what they’re singing, but all I know is this song is absolutely well composed and filled with beautiful harmonies.

After School is a kpop group that has some really fun dance/pop and r&b songs. The members also participate in variety shows, and star in dramas. They’re very versatile, however pretty underrated in their country. Anyways, After School is a awesome group and I recommend you kpop lovers check them out and purchase their music from yesasia.com

Check out “Someone if You” and also my favorite music video “Bang“:
