The MTV EMAs isn’t only about the live show itself, it’s also about the red carpet and all the fashionable looks the celebrities bring forth. Check out some of the outfits below and tell us what you think. My favorite is Snooki
A few seconds ago I came across a so-called new pop boy group called HEART2HEART, and believe me the name isn’t the worst part of it. Their debut single is called “Facebook Official” and they currently have a mini album available on iTunes (I guess anybody can do that these days). What cracks me up the most is how over-the-top their make-up is, along with their obvious concept of trying to copy kpop, which looks like a complete insult to that culture. Are you kidding me? Is this the industry’s attempt at recreating 90’s pop phenom in today’s society by unleashing these alienistic, pervacious looking dudes? Their voices aren’t exactly the wow factor, in fact it’s pure mediocrity. Please, their song is as distasteful as their choreography. Check it out below and tell us what you think: Continue reading “HEART2HEART: A failed attempt at reviving 90’s pop”
So BIG BANG has released the music video for their latest single “Tonight“, off their lame EP. Anyways, I like the video and the song, but it’s just that. Ok! Anyways watch the video below if you haven’t already (which I highly doubt), and vote if it’s hot or flop: Continue reading “BIG BANG’s “Tonight” MV: Hot or Flop?”
I previously posted about BIG BANG‘s comeback to the kpop scene, and even featured their video teaser for the intro track ‘Thank You & You‘. Well, YG Entertainment’s most valuable asset has released their 4th mini album today. The mini album consists of 6, and (I fool you not) only 6 tracks, including the lead single ‘Tonight‘. So was this comeback worth the wait of their precious VIPs after such a long time from kpop? Absolutely NOT. Are you kidding me YG, you couldn’t put more of an effort and add a couple more songs? Well anyways, I’m not a VIP and never was, so this doesn’t faze me. However, I can’t help but feel sad for their unlucky fans for this half-assed new release. Anyways, as I gather my thoughts and divert from the aforementioned issue, I decided to go ahead and give my quick review on the 6 track EP. Continue reading “[Review] BIG BANG is back, but are fans pleased?”
These guys certainly know how to keep their VIPS anxious. Kpop group BIG BANG has been away from the music scene in their homeland for quite some time, therefore their return had to bring it! By this I mean taunt their fans by releasing several photos of their new concept, and of course all the sub projects they’ve been doing leading up to their return as a group. One can only guess what their new mini album (they couldn’t record a full length album being that they left for so long? so cheap) has in store. Well, guess no further. BIG BANG has unveiled a teaser video and it appears like their in Las Vegas. Anyhoo, the teaser is just a video for their intro track, check it out below: Continue reading “The BIG BANG hype!”
Meet Jeff Darcy aka JDRelic, a producer, songwriter, artist, engineer and CEO, who rose to notable fame doing English covers of popular Kpop songs on YouTube. It was his “world famous” cover of G-Dragon’s hit “Heartbreaker” that peeked the interest of a Kpop producer, inviting JD to work with him in creating music possibly for huge international artists in the future.
JD is always working hard at establishing his already rising music career, so be sure to stay up to date because he will definitely make his mark on the music scene.
Check out his smooth english cover of TaeYang‘s “Wedding Dress” below, and read the interview for more:
Top Japanese DJ Kaori has released a new album titled “JMIX IV“. The album includes remixes of hit songs from popular artists in the kpop/jpop market, including BIB BANG, EXILE, SNSD, Kuroki Meisa, and 4Minute.
Along with the remix album, Kaori’s also releasing two DVD box sets titled “DJ Kaori’s INMIX DVD3“, and “DJ Kaori’s INMIX DVD BOX“. Both DVDs will include music video mixes, a collectible sticker, and a headphone charm. Be sure to support this talented DJ, and check out her music video for “You’re The Only One” with JAY’ED below:
Meet Taeyang, a South Korean Kpop singer, dancer, songwriter, and producer. He began his training in YG Entertainment, a company for artists wanting to pursue R&B/Urban music, at the young age of 12. After six years of vocal and dance training, he made his debut as a member of BIG BANG.
In 2008, Taeyang released his first solo mini album titled “Hot“. He incorporated mostly R&B songs on the album, as it was the genre of music he loved. He wasn’t as happy with the album due to the fact that he didn’t get the chance to write any of the songs. However, the album was well received by fans and music critic alike; he won ‘Best R&B/Soul Song’ for his single ‘Only Look At Me‘, and ‘Best R&B/Soul Album’ for “Hot” at the 7th Korean Music Awards.
GD & TOP of BIG BANG released the music video for their single “HIGH HIGH” on YouTube, and boy did they create a lot of hype around it. I must admit, the first time I saw the video, I thought it was whack! but as I listened to it and got caught up into the character of the guy calling himself TOP, I started liking it.
“HIGH HIGH” is from their self titled album, which will be released on December 24. “GD & TOP” will also feature Park Bom of 2NE1. The music video for “HIGH HIGH” was shot in a nightclub, not sure of the location, but they had a lot of foreigners up in there. A few members of the YG family, including fellow BIG BANG member Taeyang, who produced the dance number with Teddy, was also seen in the video.
If you haven’t seen the music video yet, though I don’t know how you’d miss it, check it out below:
The CF/Music Video for 2NE1‘s “Don’t Stop the Music” was recently released and it’s quite the dance number. The song is a promotional theme for the Yamaha Fiore scooter in Thailand. How do you create hype for a new product? Get 2NE1 to endorse it.
The video is quite fun, with a lot of creativity (and colors). The choreography is cool too. In my opinion, the song is good, but without the vocal adjustments, it would be great. Check it out for yourself below:
2NE1 has released the music video for their 4th single “It Hurts” from the “To Anyone” album.
The song is more of a ballad compared to their other releases, and the music video has a halloween theme to it. It was quite amazingly directed, depicting the four young ladies in pure sadness; Dara sheds tears realising that her love is no longer with her. In my opinion, Bom owns this song with her remarkable vocals, but it’s nice to see the girls really sing so passionately.
