Stars can’t even shop for underwear in peace

By Kai It seems there’s no crossing the line when it comes to photogs and how far they’ll go to get the money shot. They’ll even enter a boutique and snap stars while they’re out shopping for underwear. Of course there’s nothing wrong with a woman shopping for coverage for her privates but certainly she doesn’t want to have her picture taken while doing so, … Continue reading Stars can’t even shop for underwear in peace

[Review] 2NE1’s 2nd Mini Album

2NE1 doesn’t allow fans to miss them too long once they’re on a roll, and for weeks they’ve been releasing the songs off their second EP, which is just as rocking as their first. Their previous was definitely an introduction to showcase each of the ladies’ skills and their significance in the group, but the second enlightens how much they’ve grown and have transitioned over time. 2NE1, in my opinion, has become one of the biggest female kpop groups in the world. They’re a global phenom; a reason why some keep interested in Korean pop culture. And I’m contented with how YG Entertainment has marketed these ladies since their debut till now. Not only are they huge in music, but they’re considered fashion icons, and are in high demand when it comes to doing commercials and endorsing products. You just can’t get enough of 2NE1, and their second EP represents where they’re at and where they’re going next. Continue reading “[Review] 2NE1’s 2nd Mini Album”

2NE1 gets “Lonely”

Finally! YG Entertainment has tamed the auto-tune and allowed the real 2NE1 to stand up. The ladies exhumes passion in their latest single “Lonely“, and I can’t think of a good reason as to why the label has been hiding their true potential all this time. “Lonely” is more of an acoustic number and slows down all the booming bass and club bangers 2NE1 is known for. The track is as emotional as their previous ballad “It Hurts“. A really sweet song and the music video plays out the lyrics: sad, gloomy, and well, lonely. Check out the video below and tell us what you think: Continue reading “2NE1 gets “Lonely””

Too Fat, Too Skinny! What’s wrong with this world?

Why is it that some concern themselves about others’ weight? Why should it be an issue if someone is skinny, or packing a few pounds? It shouldn’t, it’s their own body. In my opinion, if you are comfortable and healthy in your skin, then don’t listen to what other people say, or even go over the top with dieting or other drastic weight loss measures.

I’ve often wondered why some young girls and mature women would hurt themselves to look like a model or celebrity in a magazine, or whatever other stuff contributed to their insecurities with their bodies. I definitely think the entertainment industry plays a part in that; Continue reading “Too Fat, Too Skinny! What’s wrong with this world?”

Spotlight – Taeyang

Tae Yang

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 takes it “High High”

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:
