CL Showcases Creative Freedom on ‘ALPHA’ Album

If this is your first time hearing about the ‘baddest,’ then ALPHA is a great introduction because it shows off CL’s artistry, not only as a talented rapper, but also as a vocalist.

From beginning to end, you know she’s behind the … Continue reading CL Showcases Creative Freedom on ‘ALPHA’ Album

Saranghae…tteonajima

Not exactly the usual English headline but this is a special one. The Korean words you’re breaking apart simply translate to “I love you, don’t leave…” which is the starting line in the popular song, The End is Coming, performed by the gifted South Korean trio 8eight. I’ve decided to participate in today’s Daily Post ‘This is Your Song, because this has been one of my favorites since its release.

The End is Coming is both bittersweet and beautiful all at once. The song reminds me to hold tight to love when it exists because you never know when you might lose something so precious, whether in life or death. Please take a moment to listen and feel the over-pouring emotions within the music. Continue reading “Saranghae…tteonajima”

What if Johnny’s Entertainment had female idol groups?

Mr. Kitagawa has stated in the past that one of the main reasons why he doesn’t handle female groups is because girls are more difficult to work with. Even though I’m a girl, I kind of agree with him on that one. Often times there’s just so much drama surrounding girl groups; members filing lawsuits without the opinion of the leader, as well as competing for leadership position and main vocals in a shady manner. It’s definitely tough managing one group much less a dozen, and I’m certain Johnny would recruit hundreds at a young age to begin the training process. So, in order to take some load off his shoulders I’ve come up with a few suggestions: Continue reading “What if Johnny’s Entertainment had female idol groups?”

Orange Caramel returns with “Shanghai Romance”

The cutesy thing annoys the hell out of me in kpop, but I’m making this song an exception. “Shanghai Romance” has sweet lyrics, a retro/disco inspired beat, and the ladies of Orange Caramel giving us fun and excitement. The video is just as entertaining; displaying all three of the ladies failed attempt at impressing a really hot guy. Check it out and tell us what … Continue reading Orange Caramel returns with “Shanghai Romance”

FTISLAND’s “Like Birds”

 

I’ve never gotten into FTISLAND‘s music before cause to me it seems like poppy rock and I think you can either be one or the other (pop or rock). However, after spotting their video for “Like Birds” in YouTube’s top music section, I decided to check it out. Overall, the song’s like sweety, but that guitar solo during the break is just AWE-mazing. See it for yourselves and tell us what you think: Continue reading “FTISLAND’s “Like Birds””

The KCC’s bursting HyunA’s “Bubble”

HyunA is no stranger when it comes to suggestive lyrics and provocative choreography. In fact, the rapper/singer has been a sex symbol since debuting with the kpop group 4Minute. Let’s face it, this chick knows how to turn the sexy on. Her recent summer release “Bubble Pop” has garnered plenty of attention both negative and positive. The song’s been a hot topic for discussions since it hit the airwaves. To be honest, I wasn’t into “Bubble Pop” from start and didn’t quite get the hype surrounding it, but I’ve just read that the Korea Broadcasting and Communications Review Committee (KCC) has issued a notice stating that the song is far too inappropriate. As a a result HyunA’s record label, Cube Entertainment, has decided to end the song’s promotion prematurely. 

A representative from Cube released the following statement: Continue reading “The KCC’s bursting HyunA’s “Bubble””
