Although I’m incredibly busy, I have recently decided that I need to go back into looking up K-pop videos! Thus resulting in many hours wasted when I REALLY should be doing other things. There have been so many new changes in the past few months I have been inactive in the K-pop scene, but I will try to share much more now! In the midst of rekindling, I have found favor in the group Seventeen. Although I (sort of) followed them predebut, I think it took too long for them to do anything so I lost interest. HOWEVER, I LIKE THEM NOW. Although, it seems that I don’t recognize much from predebut except Mingyu. I didn’t follow that closely predebut either so yeah.
Here’s a video that deserves more attention because it’s super cool! It’s not a music video nor a dance practice. It is the “Performance Version” and it’s pretty awesome and needs more views.
I have no idea what his name is supposed to mean but he’s quite lovely in this eerie and dark mysterious way that makes you want to rethink your entire life.
It’s still really early to say but I think we’ve got the best comeback of 2015 already released. Just when I was thinking that I needed a new post, I went on Youtube and in my subsciption box, a beautiful new video popped up as I scrolled down the long list. Honestly, I was so confused as to why they weren’t able to win the Best Rookie Award in 2014, but they really proved themselves once again. Big Byung, you are amazing. HWAITING~~! ❤
Okay, this post is going to be more of a rant on k-pop fans than it really is on Kemy but whatever. I’ll start off to say that what Kemy did was pretty bold and also rude. I think Park Bom’s style coordinator did a good job summing it up when she said, “They say you can diss somebody if you’ve reached the level to meet them face-to-face and eat together.” Obviously, Kemy is nowhere close to that level yet. She barely debuted, but she had dissed one of the biggest celebrities in K-pop that is twice her age. That was not a smart choice.
However, the fans are even worse. They’re hiding behind a computer screen and calling the girl the most horrible names I have ever heard. Honestly, they are incredibly harsh and horrible. They’re worse than Kemy right now. They’re calling her a bitch or a whore and I’ve even read some comments telling her to go die or got to hell. That is not okay. You should never tell ANYONE to go die. They’re ripping up every single thing about her and her rap. Park Bom does not need you to be gaining up on this girl for her sake. She’s a grown 30 year-old woman who has the authority and power to take care of herself. Honestly, cool down and back off of a girl you don’t even know.
For my English final, my teacher made us do a presentation using a Google Presentation full of pictures. The topics he gave us were “The Best,” “The Worst,” or a “How To.” So we either talk about the best of something, the worst of something, or make a tutorial. Now, whenever I have freedom to do what I want in school, I think hey, let’s incorporate K-pop to make this somewhat enjoyable. So that’s exactly what I did. At first, I started it as “How to Fully Enjoy K-pop” but then I realized no one wants to fully enjoy K-pop in my class so I might as well make it more amusing to myself by making it “The Best of K-pop.” Okay honestly though, this was originally a joke. I wasn’t going to make it a K-pop presentation but procrastination kills and I couldn’t think of anything else so I just did it. Here’s pretty much how the presentation went. Please excuse the presenter voice I’ll be using. (I got an A in the class 😀 )
Since I somewhat recently not that recently received a Primary and the Messengers CD from my close friend I would like to express my love for the producer.
Primary is the box guy that you times see randomly around the K-pop scene. He’s garnered quite a bit of attention recently and I find him to be one of the artists and I am fond of. You would usually tend to find his music sung by Zion.T or featuring other hip hop artists. He has a old school hip hop/RnB/electronic/funky/jazzy (if that really explained anything) feel to his music.
So if you haven’t already heard from Allkpop, Jackie Chan has decided to debut his own boy group! I was surprised. Extremely surprised. I wonder what had inspired the Jackie Chan to suddenly want to put out his own rookie group and even have his own company! The group will be named JJCC, pronounced “Double J.C.) with all their members in the early 20s. Jackie Chan himself participated in all stages of preparation for this five member group from finding the members to producing the album and more. I am highly anticipating this group coming from Jackie Chan and excited to see what he has in store for us. A strong contender is coming up for the 2014 rookie line up. I hope JJCC does not disappoint! Look forward to them later on in March.
