2NE1's I Love You MV + Inkigayo Performance



Sorry I took a while to post the MV, its good now that I can add the SBS Inkigayo performance too! 2NE1 comes back with "I Love You" ooo oo ooo oo~ This track is a mix of 2NE1's signature club sound and R&B verses. Its like 2NE1 and Big Bang's sound is getting more and more similar isn't it?

I like the song, but I thought the verses took too long. My favorite part is when it hits 3:30 where the pace gets faster and CL and BOM is like "I love you everyday, don't get away, take me away!" A bit of english error there but let's not sweat the small stuff.




Animals! Animals on the stage!! O.O Omg 2NE1 can really take performance to another level. What's next a circus on the stage? CL has a parrot on her shoulder (like the pirate that she is). But then for "I Love You" stage there are white and black swans all over the front stage. I wonder what they think of the song..




CONCEPT PICS BELOW~

Jo Kwon's Animal Performance + BTS Inkigayo



So did you guys watch Jo Kwon's comeback episode on Inkigayo yesterday? It was amazingg!! Wasn't it?? Jo Kwon performed Animal then I'm Da One, his title track.

Animal performance, I have to say I kept my eyes open the whole time! Jokwon is wearing 19.5 cm heels and dancing! That's like 7.7 inches! I can't even walk properly in 2 inch ones. Jokwon is awesomee, the song is so awesome already, I told you guys its my favorite. I'm so impressed with his confidence with his transformation of something like a male Lady Gaga + Adam Lambert. Jo Kwon did want to show something that only he can pull off. =D

Here's Jokwon's crazy boy practice video for Animal, sorry I can only get you guys the BTS Inkigayo performance, SBS disabled the videos. So below is the MBC Music Core version!

ZE:A Spectacular album + Aftermath MV



Wow! Where did this comeback come from? Our favorite 9-member boyband is back, it's been awhile right? ZE:A (Children of Empire) releases their 2nd album "Spectacular" with title track "Aftermath".

Finally you can see that ZE:A has grown a lot, they all look really mature and handsome, not children anymore! I can name all the members of ZE:A now I'm so shocked, I think by now you can too. Enjoy the MV & the triple decker concept photos below!

2NE1's I Love You (Teasers)


Yeay! 2NE1 is coming back along with their original glitzy ritz and luxurious hip hop image. They haven't released a korean song since around this time last year. The girls have been busy with their Japanese and US debut, working with Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas and whatnot, I'm totally looking forward to that!

Anyways "I Love You" is a simple dance track that is more of a mellow version of 2NE1 but still with their prominent electronic sound. The full song by itself is ---okay, but it grows on you the more you listen. I can't wait to see the MV, is there going to be a storyline? Dara's hair is a pink-purple ombre and I love Bom's red and orange hair, finally Minzy's hair is a normal color and well CL is still blonde lol.

Well, we'll just have to hold on a bit longer, here are the teasers! (Why doesn't Minzy have a teaser?)


I Love You (Teaser)




Stay tuned on SBS Inkigayo for their comeback on 8th July (Sunday). For Malaysians, 2NE1's comeback episode will air on the 18th July (Wednesday) the following week.

Super Junior is Sexy, Free & Single [MV + Photobook Translation]



Super Junior is back as 10 along with recently military-released Kangin! SuJu is taking another hard shot at fangirls with "Sexy, Free & Single" album. The concept pics I have to say are really misleading because the MV is completely "beautiful male" concept free. Although the SuJu boys do look really good already as they are.

"Sexy, Free & Single" I have to say is really good. I'm not the biggest SuJu fan but I like a few of their songs. Its a subtle electronica song that I would totally listen to! And the entire album is actually pretty good as well, none of that dat-dat-dat-dat nonsense here. I'm glad Super Junior is experimenting with non-autotune songs, they've great vocals.


Sexy, Free & Single MV

At first I lol-ed I thought they said "sexy, free and single, I'm ready to mingle". But then I found out it was "sexy free and single, I'm ready too, bingo!" Omo, the meaning becomes more =.=

T-ARA DAY BY DAY MV is out! [Tracklist + Concept Pics]

(From left) Jiyeon, Soyeon, Hwayoung, Hyomin, Ahreum, Boram, Eunjung and Q-ri

Hurray! My other fave girl group T-ARA is having their comeback with the mysterious and melancholic "Day by Day".

I was VERY surprised that this time T-ARA comes back with a ballad. They've never done this before and I'm really excited that they can now confidently embrace their marvelous vocals as a title track. I was pretty sick of all the disco dubstep dance songs they've been popping up with. Its good to take a step back and just enjoy a good song..

New member Ahreum joins the T-ARA gang (the one with red streaks in her hair) as a vocalist in the song Day by Day. I actually like Hwayoung's rap this time. In the MV, 9th member Dani (who will not comeback with T-ARA for this song) stars as the blind but supernaturally powerful, "wanted" girl escorted by Hyomin. Watch in HD its epic~~


DAY BY DAY MV

cr:loenent

In the beginning the narrator says:
“Humans wanted to wear the clothes of Gods. They wanted to talk like Gods and reign like Gods. However, the Gods did not permit such thoughts of the humans.
In the destroyed world, humans became more like animals than animals themselves. Picking up knives in attempts to reign over one another, they started to slaughter one another.
But one day…
Rumors started spreading that among them was a girl who possessed special powers.
Jiyeon says: You know this person right? Where is she?”

Kim Bum's Home Town PV + Tracklist



Following up is another Flower 4, Kim Bum! Kim Bum recently released an album "Home Town" with his adorable self in the PV.

Yes! Kim Bum can sing and even in Japanese! His voice is very melodic and sweet and goes well with the soothing title track, makes me miss my home, even though I'm already home lol. Check it out~

Kim Hyun Joong turns up the HEAT!



Aaaahhh I'm meltinggg..... Kim Hyun Joong is ready for some summer rockin' with his new single HEAT! This is a japanese single where KHJ teams up with rock gropu B'z whom he has always admired.

KHJ requested himself for this song and I'm glad they made the collaboration! The song is so fun to dance around with, Hyun Joong looks so happy to dabble his hand in a bit of J-Rock. Plus he's sizzling hot in the PV. Get ready for it, single drops July 4th!

SISTAR - Loving U MV + Concept Pics



I was really contemplating whether I should have posted this MV because it is so sexy sexy SEXY! SISTAR has fun in the sun travelling in Hawaii for Loving U!

They don't particularly try to look sexy but these girls are just so obviously undeniably hot! It's worse when swimwear comes into the picture along with sailor outfits. Anyways I love the song, its fun and cute summer song and the dance is fun as well. Check out their MV, Dance video, tracklist and concept photos~

T-ARA's Day by Day teaser MV!



Whoaaaa.... I can't wait for all these comebacks soon, T-ARA, 2NE1, Super Junior, its all going to be daebakk!

I'm going to start freaking out about T-ARA, they will come back as a 8 member group including new member Ahreum. All T-ARA members are so pretty! Even the new ones. The 9th member is American-born Dani, but she's only in the teaser as an actress and will be with the group's consequent comeback.

Day by Day will be released on 3rd July. There will be a 20 minute drama music video.

Day by Day MV Teaser
cr: coremidas

I'm diggin the medieval Lord of the Rings flute intro, sounds super cool. The Sci-Fi scene is a brand new concept for T-ARA YAY for a storyline music video! Jiyeon looks hot even though I don't like her blonde hair, is she an underground mafia Queen?? Hyomin with red hair just shows how awesome she is. I think Dani is suppose to be blind in the story.. Ahh! I can't wait.

Here's a sneak peak of the new members..

Jokwon says "I'm Da One" MV + Album

100% endorphin, no joke...

2AM’s leader Jo Kwon can finally unleash his inner-diva! All the hype for his solo effort does not go to waste, this album is daebak! It is very very far-fetched from the ballads of 2AM, as Jokwon’s “I’m Da One” is a great cheery house album.

I’m not one that is into this whole club song craze that’s been dominating American charts, but Jokwon’s album allows a forward move into the k-music industry, its fresh and cool but still keeps up with the current “club” trend without sounding overused.

“I’m Da One” isn’t my favorite song in the album, I much prefer the other songs to be the main title. It’s not a bad song at all because the entire album makes me wanna dance. Wingardium leviosa~!! Read on below for my picks in the album.

Best Friends Who Idols Envy - Every1 Weekly Idol

 yess I miss spazzing~~




I love watching Every1 Weekly Idol episodes. Usually the two hosts talk casually to every idol group about their quirks, their ideal types and their idol crushes. This time on June 6th, they classify the TOP 10 idol best friends, other idols are jealous about. I’m totally jealous too!

The girl group ones are the only ones without subs, if you find them please comment below with the link! Girl group subs are always slower than boy groups, I guess fangirls have more enthusiasm? The first person that shows up in the video is the one who's envious of the besties~! Starting backwards …

#10 – Taemin (SHINee) & Kai (EXO-K)


#9 – UEE (After School) & Hyosung (SECRET) – no sub --


#8 – Key (SHINee) & Woohyun (Infinite)

4Minute Friend Testing Guy-Idols



On MNET’s the Beatles Code June 7th, we find out that 4Minute’s Jihyun calls her friend, Super Junior’s Donghae asking him for money haha. No wonder, he is such a sweet guy! I don’t know if this makes you jealous Alia, but I guess this is why you like him.. Watch the hilariousness below~~

It’s Hyuna’s turn and who else does she call but her partner in troublemaking Trouble Maker’s JS or Beast’s Hyunseung! People always thought they date, but the way Hyunseung reacts to Hyuna’s help haha. I don’t know what to say, he’s quite blur…get with the program JS!

Even though recently T-ARA has been turned into a 9 member group adding on Ahreum and Dani, no word yet if they’re coming along for the trip? Anyways, let’s P-A-R-T-Y!


2BiC (투빅) HU+MAN album & MVs



I introduce to you 2BiC of Nextar Entertainment! Although they have been around for a while, this is the first full mini album I’ve listened to.. and what a beautiful group I would have missed if I hadn’t! 2BiC stands for “2Bi Continue” members Jinhwan and Junhyung are specially selected by infamous producer and composer Cho Young-Soo for their mind-blowing vocals and musical traits.

I love love this album that features other excellent vocal singers Davichi, Ailee and 79. All these singers just produce amazing quality to the R&B easy-going and sometimes break-down and cry moments in this album. There are 3 beautiful MVs that complement the songs of 2BiC’s current promotion track “Love Again” with Ailee, “Just Like Tonight” with Davichi and the heartbreaking “Made Another Woman Cry” featuring Minho from “The Sun and the Moon” and famous actor Joo Won.

M-tiful (엠티플) aka Kim Won Joon – All Right MV + Profile




If you’ve been watching KBS Music Bank lately you’ve probably noticed the increased number of bands performing. One of them that caught my eye is M-tiful with their catchy modern-lighthearted rock song “All Right”. Actually M-tiful is just the charismatic Choi Won Joon the actor/singer, known for dramas such as “Rainbow Romance” and “Rude Miss Youngae”. Viewers have also noticed inexplicitly that his band mates are foreigners!

All Right” is written by hit lyricist Kim Hee Son and composed by Lee Won and nVyond of After School’s Bang and Son Dambi’s Queen. Despite that, it’s not a club song I swear, I really love the song. Kim Won Joon’s quite talented after enhancing his vocals and guitar skills, he debuts under the name M-tiful. Check the MV out and the short profile of Kim Won Joon.

After School's Flashback comeback!




Eight member group After School is back from their Japanese expedition with replacement of leader and a new member. The new leader Jung Ah now replaces the position of Gahee. A new member Gaeun joins other relatively new member E-Young in the new lineup.

After School’s Flashback is a big hit to the sexy concept and this is quite the effort especially while introducing new members. The song is a house track and has its ups and downs. I like the music interlude when each member pops up behind each other, however it was very hard for me to find Raina >.<.

Tracklist:

01 – Rip Off (Korean version)

Gangkiz – MAMA Repackaged 1st Mini Album



Debuting with the mini album “We Became Gang” the new group from Core Contents Media’s wing are the mature ladies of Gangkiz of GM Entertainment. The group first came out with the singleHoney Honey which is a spinoff of the beloved songs of T-ARARoly Poly” and “Lovey Dovey”, but with a more “mature” feel and performance.

MAMA is the follow up song for Gangkiz, it’s catchy but the MV is now downsized to the seven of these gorgeous model-like figures dancing in a white glossy room with dimming lights. I prefer 10x “Honey Honey” MV though.


MAMA MV:

 
cr:newkpopmelody03

Honey Honey is a more playful teasing song and I have to say one of the best K-Pop MVs directed! The MV is shot in several countries across Europe, including Italy, Switzerland, and Austria along with T-ARA’s Hyomin. (This was when T-ARA had their FREEDOM Euro-trip simulateneously). The overall cost of Gangkiz’s debut is 10 million yikes!

Honey Honey MV

cr:gmentertainment

Gangkiz is made up of members Jihyun, Sooeun, Haein, Somin, Eunbyul, Esther and Hyeji, ehh I guess I'll make a profile for them in a bit. Honey Honey MV looks like it’s based on an intriguing concept of gorgeous burn-out women, how kickass would it be if this MV was turned into a movie and the songs as the soundtrack, because all of the members of Gangkiz look like such good actresses and some of them are even actresses under CCM.

Check out the other videos of Gangkiz and T-ARA’s European trip in GM Entertainment’s Youtube channel, I like watching all the different cuts of the Honey Honey MV, where Hyomin and Jiyeon of T-ARA direct and play along with Gangkiz.

[PROFILE] B.A.P (Best.Absolute.Perfect)


How about we get to know the B.A.P boys before they make their trip into Malaysia? Here we go! B.A.P is an acronym for Best. Absolute. Perfect and how the six members all want to emulate each meaning of the three words as the best, absolute and perfect group.

From strong vocals to powerful rapping skills, B.A.P is best known for their rough and tough, `if you look at me in the eye I’ll crush you!’ image. Apparently bad boys really get the girls going. Even though they have just debuted this year they have a large following as newbies.

Debut Date: January 26, 2012
Official Fanclub: BABY
Company: TS Entertainment

They are in the same company as hip-hop duo Untouchable and girl group SECRET. Bang Yong Guk debuted first as a soloist featuring in SECRET’s Song Ji Eun’s solo song 미친거니(Going Crazy), then continuing with his own single “I Remember” featuring BEAST’s Yang Yo Seob. What good connections! Later on during exam time, to boost up student’s motivation in Korea, Bang Yong Gook teamed up with fellow member Zelo as a duo “BANG&ZELO”, whom are both rappers in the single “Never Give Up” featuring renowned choir group Heritage.


POWER MV:
cr: tsent2008


The concept of B.A.P is that they are six aliens from the Planet Mato, who invaded earth in order to save their dying planet. Each member represents one Mato or “bunny” as people perceive them to be lol. The concept was played out in their SBS MTV reality show “Ta-Dah its B.A.P”. There are several humourous comic strips of B.A.P’s Mato characters on the official Matoki facebook: https://www.facebook.com/officialmatoki

14 June 2012

B.A.P 1st Showcase in Malaysia yes sir!



So do you guys happen to be free on the 6th of July 2012? B.A.P’s coming down to Malaysia! Wake up! You need to see these Warriors because "we got the power!!"


VENUE: KL Live, Life Centre, Kuala Lumpur
DATE: 6 July 2012
TIME: 8:30pm


Jazzy Group that brought Block B last May has set up another delight by bringing B.A.P’s first showcase. Bang Yong Guk and Zelo have already visited Malaysia when they were a duo in January, how wonderful we get Youngjae, Himchan, Daehyun & Jongup too this time! Let's listen to the boys promote their showcase in English~
 




2NE1’s BE MINE MV – INTEL “Make Thumb Noise” Project




Since 2NE1 is now endorsing INTEL’s Ultrabook with “Make Thumb Noise” Project, the girls have released an endorsing MV of a new song titled “BE MINE”.

It’s not your typical hardcore 2NE1 song, because it was made through a competition where fans voted on what kind of song they would like 2NE1 to sing. I do agree it’s a nice romantic R&B track where 2NE1 doesn’t have come up with any crazy outfits or concept. I like the clean & simple yet elegant look and sound to “Be Mine” MV, yall know their designer outfits are no joke. I really can just relax and take a bubble bath with this song.

BE MINE MV:

 cr:2ne1

I don’t think this track has been officially released yet, so let’s wait till it does, I think we all really want it. Additional INTEL photos & GIFs below.. =)

December – She’s Gone MV + Album



Ballads this year so far are great! Two of some of the best balladeers in the mainstream is back with the up tempo sorrow of “She’s Gone”. I loved the song when I first saw December perform, I know DK from Immortal Song 2 and Yunhyuk I always thought looked like TVXQ’s U-Know haha.

I really recommend listening to this mini album, the songs have cheerful aspects to them but also have the sad factor of up tempo ballads. The featured are extremely good vocalists like December themselves. She’s Gone MV stars CO-ED’s Taewoon.

Wonder Girls Wonder Party album + Like This MV



Like this yo~ Like this~ Who’s happy Wonder Girls have returned to Korea for another album? I say it’s pretty good they’re back here again, they can release good songs instead of wasting time wandering around in the US. Okay so maybe they’re efforts are not worthless in the US but things sure do work slower there.

Anyways the new single is “Like This” which is a fun dance song, I haven’t yet gotten a grip on. I’m doing this post out of courtesy of the album Wonder Party, which I think has other songs that should share the limelight.

BTOB (비투비) Born To Beat Album + Profile




Have you guys had a chance to know BTOB? Well BTOB stands for ‘Born to Beat’ and they are a new group of 7 good looking guys with a great range of vocals from Cube Entertainment. They’re style of songs are focused on their excellent vocals praised by several artists in the industry.


Although they debuted in March, I just started to really listen to them and after Irresistible Lips single came out I decided that I really like their style. The latest album is Born To Beat and the Asia Edition includes other great pop & ballad singles like Father and Insane.

Actress Seo Wu stars in the Irresistible Lips MV along with BTOB member Lee Minhyuk.

U-Kiss – The Special To Kiss Me + Believe MV



Wow is it just me or did U-Kiss’s comeback was a surprise? I totally did not expect a follow up mini album after DORADORA from U-Kiss because of their gaining success in Japan. But I’m totally happy they are back~!

The title track is “Believe” an upbeat and fun house song from the Special To KissMe’s mini album to show appreciation for U-Kiss’s fans. I feel I can enjoy this song because they don’t look as pressured to come up with something to beat their last more serious songs.

Dongho switches up from rapper to vocalist, which is a nice change its suits his cuteness so much, rather than when he scrunches his face to look tougher when he raps lol, anyways I love magnae. Check out the dance U-Kiss added a hint of Tick Tack dance in it as well! Concept pics below~

Believe MV

cr:ukiss2008

The album includes the first single that spawned “Te Amo” meaning “I love you”, which is a pleasant upbeat song too. I love U-Kiss, they are one of the most loved groups throughout the world yet they never forget to show love to KissME’s =D.

I’m currently watching Dongho’s new drama “Holy Land” where he is a shy but natural boxer and beats up mafia guys. Also you can watch Kevin, AJ and Eli cook on KBS’s youtube channel show “Star Kitchen with U-Kiss” where the boys speak English the entire time while being taught how to cook!

DORADORA MV + Tracklist + Concept Pics below...


BIG BANG – MONSTER MV + Special Edition: STILL ALIVE album



Now really, BIG BANG.. what can I say? How can I explain exactly how I feel my heart about to explode from the geniusness that is BIG BANG. I’m totally mind-blown by MONSTER! How about you guys?

Seriously, I think this music video could really contest against my absolute favorite K-Pop music video of all time, Sunny Hill’s Midnight Circus. MONSTER has amazing special effects, costume, cinematography and storyboard (although not easily understood) that are ahead of anyone in the music industry today. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the best MV for the entire year!

MONSTER is a cross between a orchestral ballad and upbeat R&B/Hip Hop feel, my favorite part is TOP’s and G-Dragon rap entrances. The rapping style is almost like a conversation but leads ultra smoothly into the song. You can say that it would go in the “BLUE” category of songs, but in its own right is completely different as well, check out the meaning of the song below!

Infinite’s INFINITIZE + The Chaser (추격자) MV



Let’s infinitize! Okay I don’t really know what that means, but the guys sure sound cute when they say it. Infinite comes back with another catchy song “The Chaser”.

The MV is a bit strange, where L is in a car crash and he keeps rolling and rolling in the air… hmm a few other guys play the part as bad boys on motorcycles, but Hoya is climbing something? Leader Sungkyu is seen walking away from the crashed car, oh man did Sungkyu put L in the crashing car?? And then there’s a mysterious box.  Jeez I really cannot figure out the MV it’s a bit cryptic, if anyone can explain to me the storyline please feel free to do so.

However I did enjoy their new dance, they aren’t totally in sync but their moves are really strong and creative. Sungyeol looks good in long hair, but it took me a while to figure out where Woohyun was cuz he had long hair in some scenes. All of them look so good! =D

B1A4 – Baby Goodnight MV + Special Edition: Ignition



The most playful boys of K-Pop is back with B1A4's follow up single “Baby Goodnight (Sleep Well Good Night)”. This is another hit spawned by the silly geniuses of Jinyoung (leader) and Baro (rapper) of the group. The last song Baby I’m Sorry was also written by Jinyoung. I really love his relaxed writing style and he’s my favorite.

Baby Goodnight MV

cr:chb1a4

Sandeul butt bump! The dance is just the adorableness~~ I seriously move my shoulders everytime this song starts. And B1A4 is just so silly with their cowboy costumes haha. The MV shows that they thought they could trick the girlfriend by putting her to sleep early, but really the girlfriend tricked them by using their absence to go out instead. To anyone watching this I suggest just have fun with it! It’s suppose to be a non-serious song yeah!

Can I take each of them home? Gongchan has those sparkling eyes and CNU actually doesn't look bad without his glasses.Well they might just put me to sleep, tell me goodnight, and go off partying some more XP. Tracklist below..

JJ Project Debuts with “Bounce” + Profile



JJ Project have had their acting debut in the limelight as actors in “Dream High 2”. JB (blonde) played in the idol group I:DN (Eden) opposite of T-ARA’s Jiyeon, whereas Jr. (brunette) was a backup dancer for I:DN. I was really excited for their debut because I completely loved them in Dream High 2 and their singing and dancing talents really shone out throughout the drama.

“Bounce” is a super fun mixture of hip-hop, electronic with a hint of rock and guitar riffs. That’s basically how you can describe the rest of the mini album as well, it’s just really colorful album to listen to, to pump up your mood.

BOUNCE MV:
cr: jjprojectofficial

The special effects are the same as 2PM’s Hands Up if you’re wondering. I love the energy these boys bring to the telly! Shake-it up shake –it for me~~ The dance is really easy to follow and so much fun to do. I love it! Oh and I love JB’s pink hair too lol.


Tracklist:
01 – Bounce
02 - Hooked (꽂혔어)
03 – Before This Song Ends ( 노래가 끝나기 전에)
04 – Bounce (inst.)

I really like Bounce and Before This Song Ends, who is the girls that sings in this track huh? Does anyone know? Sometimes it sounds like someone from the Wonder Girls or miss A, I dunno..


Dalmatian – State of Emergency + E.R MV



It’s been a long time since we heard from Dalmatian, but they came back with a great song and concept. After the cute concept in “That Man Opposed” “E.R” (Emergency Room) shows a great exposure on Dalmatian’s vocals and overall I think Dalmatian is heading in the right direction as the songs are just so surprisingly good to listen to!

After Dari left for the military, Day Day the rapper left and is now replaced by new rapper Simon who joins members Inati, Jeesu, Daniel and Youngwon. Simon is half Korean half Japanese and he’s fluent in 3 languages, including English, Korean and Japanese. I can tell that the English & pronunciation has improved tremendously in this mini album.

E.R MV
cr:cjenmmusic

I like the intro a lot, it’s very different than the random English that the idols put in their songs nowadays. The songs really catchy I like the fading chorus, I appreciate that it’s really not commonly used too. All the tattoos in the MV are painted actually so don't worry guys. ;)

IU – Spring of A Twenty Year Old + Every End of the Day MV

Continuing from the LOEN Ent family, we have IU!

Admittedly when I first saw the teaser, I though “oh here we go another cute, look at my aegyo mv” but NO I was wrong, the MV for the title track Every End of the Day is quite pleasant! The guy in the MV never shows up, but can be seen as shadows. This is a happy ‘I’m in love’ song and I think IU was not overtly cute as it was very sweet that the guy made her smile and happy as his girlfriend aww..

The MV was fully shot in beautiful Venice, Italy, I can really feel the sweetness grr! The album "Spring of A Twenty Year Old" includes the single Peach as well, but I didn’t like it as much. Did IU write this song? Or did she just act like she did in the teaser?

Hehe I will start with this, Sunny Hill that came back as a 4 member group because Janghyun is still in the military. Now don’t be confused this song is actually “Is the White Horse Coming” in Korean, but in English they’ve made it equivalent in translation as “Princess and Prince Charming”. Maybe it’s a phrasal thing us English-speakers to understand the concept?

Again Sunny Hill does an excellent job in depictibg a song most likely based on a fairy-tale lesson. This one is about how a guy should not get hung up on his perfect girl, being picky and particular on her characteristics because sometimes she can really be a real byatch and diss him, and in the end he’ll be left all alone.

Is the White Horse Coming/Princess and Prince Charming MV

Tracklist:
01 - Is The White Horse Coming? (백마는 오고 있는가)
02 – The Grasshopper Song (Haihm Remix)

I really just liked the first song, I didn’t really like the Grasshopper Song remix. I think Sunny Hill still keeps intact that their song has a lesson to it not commonly presented by most kpop songs. Also another upside to this video that it’s not so concentrated on a story, it’s nice to have a dance video for a change, since the dance is pretty fun too.

Daikoku Danji is at it again with another fun & addictive Japanese single “JUMPING”. Also known as Dae Guk Nam Ah or The BOSS. And guess what? The boys finally have a fanclub name! Fans of these pretty loves are called “MASTER” as these fans are “the BOSS’s owners who have mastered everything about them as well as meaning the artists and the fans trust each other and stand by each other.” I am a MASTER yay!

The group is set for solo concerts in 2012 in both Korea and Japan confirmed, and also The BOSS will have a Korean comeback through a full length album release in April!

After ending their “Love” series of songs such as Love Power, Love Bingo, Love Parade, Love Letters, Love Days, “JUMPING” is a super fun song where the boys play hide-n-seek with each other so adorable!! The song is soo Japanese, like it should be in an anime. The full Jumping album will be released March 28th aghh why so long..

U-KISS - Forbidden Love & A Shared Dream 1st JP Album


This is forbidden love~ U-KISS is daebak this year in Japan for their Major Debut! Forbidden Love single has a new track called “Redial”. Alongside, U-Kiss releases their 1st FULL Japanese album “A Shared Dream” comprising of all your fave tracks Tick Tack, Forbidden Love, A Shared Dream and 7 other new tracks with 3 japanese versions of Man Man Ha Ni, Bingeul Bingeul & Shut Up!! (However, this full album doesn’t have Redial, hm dunno why).

Forbidden Love is an amazing song! Following their last super sick Tick Tack, this song has its own addictive track following just the outlines of Tick Tack. I recommend listening without looking at the MV first because I felt a detachment from the MV when I first saw it.You know how it is.. it’s hard to pay attention when you see 7 hot sexy guys dancing all sick like~

Forbidden Love MV:

A Shared Dream MV:

I die a little bit everytime I watch Forbidden Love, the dancing is the tip of the tippity top, as always no one can touch U-Kiss! AJ is mine btw haha his neck swiping killed me. And I love awesome Kevin’s “I’m begging you now!” Other than that Kiseop’s part is quite big his voice is so gentle and nice, I wish the camera wouldn’t have so much blasting effects, its distracting to me. Oh! And Hoon-to-Soohyun nailed the Gain-to-Narsha joining “haaa~” note! Haha I couldn’t help making that comparison, I loved it.
