K-Pop:Year 2011, Month:January


Hello everyone.I hope everyone is doing fine.The year 2012 is already a month old and this is my first post of the year.Here is a short review of the year 2011…:)

The year started with a bang.DBSK made a comeback with keep your head down(although it was only Yunho and Changmin but it was great for a kpop lover like me to see them return to the stage).The song is one of my favorite songs(I didn’t like the rap…it sounded little creepy but otherwise it was fine).This was the return of the KINGS.

I was not a huge fan of MBLAQ before the song CRY was released.It was one of the best pop ballads of the year 2011.Take a look at the MV!!

People always complaint that only good looking sexy girls make it into entertainment industry(and yeah thats the truth) but one Girl Group is an exception here and they are PIGGY DOLLS.I enjoyed watching them perform on music shows and the girls are really talented.

Another song which made into my favorites list is BTD.Infinite, which was highly underrated at that time couldn’t leave a big impact on music shows but their sincerity and hard work was clearly visible and that’s what paid off later in the year.

Err i also tried to do a cover this song but unfortunately it turned out something like this

Secret Garden is one of the few dramas i watched this year(i watched only two 😛 err two and a half to be precise one was City Hunter and other was Athena)Will always remember this drama for the OSTs.It featured some of  the best ballads of the year and was one of the most viewed drama of the year.If you haven’t watched this drama..go and watch now…below is the one of the OST of the Drama.

Teen Top..is one of the bands i dont like..but their song Super Love made into my playlist and that too because of JD Relic.For those who dont know JD, he is a producer and a singer.He teamed up with ukiss later in the year(will come to this later)So I’m linking the cover version here not the original one..well all credit goes to Teen Top…

I personally find solo singers better than a group.G.na the queen of Kpop(some of you might not agree with me on that)released the song Black and White.Its better than Top girl..

Mighty Mouth Tok Tok was released on jan 18(Music Video).I was just googling some new k songs and heard this one.This song is the most played in my playlist.Dont know why but i found the MV interesting too.The original ver. featured Kim Bum Soo and this one featured Soya.The original ver is good to hear too but Soya’s vocals suited the song and i will go with this version.

The saddest moment of 2010 was the expiration of SS501’s contract.Every member of the group chose to pursue solo careers and Park Jung Min released the debut single Not Alone.He didnt win any music show but his comeback was the most appreciated one.

Seungri’s What Can I Do is the next song i’m going to list here.Typical K-pop no. which makes you dance to the beats.The song was also featured in Engadget not because of Kpop but because of the use of LG Slate which was highly anticipated at that time.

Other than all this,KARA DSP controversy was also a main highlight of the month.

Thank you for reading!!!!

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2011 – April Week 2


 

On just its second week on the chart, CN Blue’s “Intuition” rises six spots to get No. 1, winning easily by a wide margin. The band is now three for three, with all their charted songs getting to No. 1. Last year, CN Blue had their debut song “Loner” went to No. 1, then followed up with “Love” which topped the chart for six weeks and became our “Song Of The Year” in 2010.  Now “Intuition” adds to their young but already impressive resume.

Two groups have their first top 5 hit this week. Girl’s Day is enjoying surprising success with their latest single “Twinkle Twinkle” at No. 4 while boy band Infinite also has their biggest hit so far with “Nothing’s Over”. Both are sophomore groups who in large part were overlooked last year, but they are increasing in popularity now.

As we begin the second quarter this year, our chart is heating up with comeback songs by big name singers. Kim Tae Woo, whose “Love Rain” was one of the most popular songs two years ago, came back with his second album “T-School”. The title song “Echo” immediately debuted into the top 10 this week.  Just below him is Yangpa’s “It Hurts”. Yangpa is coming back after a four-year absence. Despite releasing only three albums in the last ten years, she has always received solid support on all her releases.

Finally, a surprisingly high debut this week at No. 13 by the male duo UV. Their latest hit “Itaewon Freedom” is also their first top 20 hit. UV has a unique music style, mixing R&B, hip-hop, and funk in their songs. The song features the famous JYP and perhaps it is one of the reasons this has become their breakthrough hit.

Idols and Their Super Duper Adorable Pets ♥ Part 1


 

Whether a Korean or a foreign celebrity, celebrities all seem to have one thing in common: they are animal lovers—and idols are no exception. Recently, there has been a surge of idols who are unveiling their lovely pets through personal websites such as Cyworld, me2day, and Twitter. These lucky pets who get to eat, sleep, cuddle around, and enjoy nonstop physical affection with their celebrity owners can be considered idols themselves among fans who envy them. With this being the case, these star pets even boast large fan bases similar to that of their owners. So who are these popular celebrity pets?

We tried gathering a collection of stars who are madly, deeply, truly in love with their pets. This article is the first part of the three part celeb & pet series. Enjoy! 😀

G-Dragon & His Shar-Pei “Gaho”

Awwww… the two buddies look soooooo cute together! ♥

These two are a match made in heaven 😀

“Gaho” is already a superstar enjoying explosive popularity. Thanks to his awesome owner, lucky Kaho also enjoys star treatment by making special tv appearances, as on SBS’s “Kim Jung Eun’s Chocolate,” Mnet’s “BIG BANG TV,” and even G-Dragon’s music video as well as posing together for photo spreads. He even got to walk down the red carpet with daddy G-Dragon!

Tae Yang & His Dog “Boss”


Tae Yang named his dog “Boss,” hoping he will become “a boss among dogs.” The two look like best buddies, how cute! 🙂

Lee Hyo Ri & Her Cats Mi Mi & Sooni

They live together and they’re known to be huge fans of watching Mnet just like their mom, Lee Hyo Ri. Also, Chic and sexy just like their mom!

Super Junior’s Kim Hee Chul & His Cats “Heebum” and “Bang Shin”

▲Whoa… check out Heebum’s sexy pose! 😉

Although the name “Bang Shin” has a similar pronunciation to the Korean word ‘byung shin’ (idiot), it’s short for “become a shin (God) of Bengals (type of cat).” The two always make great partners for posing together in photos uploaded on Cyworld and Twitter.

Super Junior’s Yesung & His Three Sulcata Tortoises and New Puppy “Kkoming”

“I bought three land turtles because I felt lonely in my dorm and was looking for something fun to do,” Yesung commented on the December 9th episode of SBS’s “Midnight Entertainment TV”. However, when he called his turtles to come over to him, they ignored his words and went away from him in the opposite direction instead. Slightly embarrassed, he jokingly commented “I raised these turtles because I felt lonely but they are making me lonelier.” At first he only raised one tortoise named “Ttangcchoma” but he later bought two more and gave them cute names, “Ttangcchoming” and “Ttangcchmaeng.”

Well it looks like Yesung finally found himself a new pet that might listen to him. On March 25th, he revealed his new puppy named Kkoming (variation of kkomangie, meaning little one). He posted on Twitter, “Yesungie’s new family member… Our Kkoming who hasn’t even been 70 days since she was born. Black and Tan Pomeranian ~~ So so cute ^^ Grow strong beside oppa! And get along well with your turtle brothers.”

Kim Hyung Joon & His Dog Cchoko ♥


It’s a well known story to SS501 fans. About two years ago, Kim Hyung Joon bought a ‘toy poodle.’ ‘Toy poddles’ are tiny poodles that have been bred into smaller sizes like that of a stuffed animal. This is done since original poodles are usually difficult to raise inside a typical house due to their huge size. Typically, ‘toy poodles’ are tiny enough to hold up with one hand, with an average size around 26cm and weighing about 2~3kg. However, netizens are guessing that Kim Hyung Joon might have been scammed because his toy poodle (?) ‘Cchoko’ instantly grew into a huge dog that one can barely hold up with two hands.

Various photos have been posted online of Kim Hyung Joong holding Cchoko, some when he was a puppy and others of Cchoko fully grown as a huge mid-sized dog. It has been said that during his radio show, he confessed his mistake by admitting that he “accidently fed him 80 grains of dog food for each meal, when it was supposed to be 80 a day.” Yet the fans are claiming despite feeding an overloaded amount of food, a toy poodle can’t all of sudden grow into a supersized poodle and are convinced he was scammed into buying a dog which wasn’t a toy poodle in the first place.
SHINee and Their Dogs “Eve” and “Coco”


SHINee’s Lee Tae Min named his cute toy poodle “Eve” to commemorate their first meet on Christmas Eve of 2006. Lee Tae Min expressed his love for Eve by stating, “Every day when I open my eyes in the morning and close my eyes at night, you are always next to me. That’s the happiest time of the day. Let’s always be together for the start and end of everything for a long time! I’ll love you more.” Kim Ki Bum named his Yorkshire Terrier “Coco” because the first thing that popped into his mind when he saw brown “Coco” was a chocolate cookie. He commented, “My lovely treasure Coco, I truly want to live forever with you. I’ll never be apart from you!”

JYJ’s Yoochun & His Dogs “Harangie” and “Norae”


When Harangie was young

Santa Norae 😀

JYJ’s Jae Joong & His Cat “Ji Ji”

▲Soundly sleeping on an expensive pillow—Louis Vuitton wallet! 😉

Sung Yuri & Her Dog “Eing Eing Ei”

Sung Yuri recently revealed cute couple photos taken with her dog “Eing Eing Ei” on Facebook. In the photos, she is taking a bike ride with “Eing Eing Ei” sitting in the bike basket. Along with the photos, she wrote “Taking a bike ride with my Eing Eing Ei~” and “Chic Eing Eing Ei~ You’re tired of hanging out with Yuri?”.

2011 welcomes a battle of the boy groups


An early forecast reveals that the beginning of 2011 will be marked with an influx of girl group debuts, but with the return of various male groups looming near, fans will get their full doses of testosterone in the near future as well.

Rookies including MBLAQTeen Top and Infinite have been generating lots of chatter and interest with their ongoing comebacks this month.

MBLAQ’s title track “Cry” was released just two days ago and has already secured high rankings on various charts including those of Mnet and Bugs. Their full album “BLAQ Style” will be released on the 10th with a live comeback on the 13th.

Teen Top, whose members got kpop fans doing double takes with their silver hair concept, released aMV teaser today for their comeback track ”Transform.” Due to member Niel’s injury, the group has pushed back their live comeback to the 13th.

Finally, Infinite will be returning with their second six-track mini-album “Evolution,” with concept photosand preview videos attracting much attention. Their comeback showcase is schedule to take place in just a few hours today at Seouls’ CGV.

On the other end, news of the impending returns of TVXQ and Big Bang, arguably the two largest male groups of the Korean music scene in recent years, has already been dominating headlines in regards to their comeback albums. TVXQ and Big Bang’s last albums, “Mirotic” and “Remember”, were released in September and November 2008 respectively, so these returns mark the end of two year hiatuses for both groups.

The special edition of TVXQ’s “Why (Keep Your Head Down)” album has been released today with the HoMin duo gearing up for a comeback on Music Bank on January 7, followed by appearances on Music Core, Inkigayo and possibly M! Countdown due to reconciliations between SME and Mnet. Choreographed by Rino Nakasone of the Beat Freaks, “Why (Keep Your Head Down)” also caught the attention of American gossip blogger Perez Hilton.

Big Bang’s sub-unit duo GD&TOP made waves with the release of “High High,” “Oh Yeah” and “Knock Out” last month, complete with the most expensive comeback stage in Mnet M. Countdown’s history. After Japanese promotion plans were delayed, it was also announced that GD&TOP will have a second round of promotions for “Don’t Go Home.” Furthermore, Big Bang’s maknae Seungri will be releasing a mini-album on January 13, and the entire group will be making a full comeback soon thereafter.

Unsurprisingly, TVXQ & Big Bang’s returns are being met with overwhelming receptions — “Keep Your Head Down” recorded massive sales immediately after release, and GD&TOP enjoyed 200,000 pre-orders for their album.

Like the 2009 domination of countless new girl groups including 2NE14minutef(x) and After School, it looks like we’ll be seeing a lot of female debuts this year, but will 2011 mark the return of a boy group craze as well?

[NEWS] Big Bang, one of the most expensive CF stars, classified under “Super A Class”


On January 5th, TV Report released the data results they’ve compiled from various advertisement and model contracting companies in order to find the most expensive celebrity figures of 2011.

The data they’ve published were updated as of January 2011, and consists of appearance and contract fees paid to singers for year-long contracts.

So who are the most expensive CF stars?

According to the results, Rain and Big Bang were classified under ‘Special A Class’ in the industry, and are both worth $1 million to $1.5 million USD.

2PM, SNSD, Lee Hyori, and SNSD were placed in the $800,000 to $900,000 USD sector, while BoA followed at $700,000 to $800,000 USD.

Lee Seung Gi, Kim Hyun Joong, Jay Park, Super Junior, JYJ, Son Dambi, and the Wonder Girls placed at $500,000 to $600,000 USD.

2AM, CNBLUE, KARA, 4minute, MBLAQ, and After School (excluding UEE) are worth a minimum of $400,000 USD. After School’s UEE exceeds that amount.

IU, FT Island, Seo In Young, and SECRET were revealed to have been in discussion for $200,000 to $300,000 USD.

Of course, the true worth of a star cannot be determined by numbers, but the numbers give better insight into the commercial aspect of the stars.

GD&TOP’s “Don’t Go Home” banned on MBC


Big Bang’s GD&TOP were hit with another ban, this time from MBC for their track, “Don’t Go Home“. The broadcasting network blacklisted the song on January 5th under the reason that the song was ‘unfit for public broadcast.’

This is the second ban this week for the duo, as it follows the ban of “Knock Out” from all three public broadcasting networks.

YG Entertainment representatives spoke with Star News and revealed, “We expected ‘Knock Out’ to be banned from the three networks, so we will be re-submitting the songs, but MBC banning ‘Don’t Go Home’ has come as a bit of a surprise to us.

They continued, “We’ve retorted that there is nothing wrong with the song, as it was even accepted byKBS and SBS. As much as it is hard to understand why MBC would find it unfit for broadcast, we believe that MBC has their own reasons, so we will respectfully re-submit it for an evaluation.”

When asked why they believed the song was banned, they answered, “We feel that T.O.P’s rap was a part of the problem, but we’d like for them to interpret the lyrics as is.  When we re-submit the song, we will not be editing any of the lyrics.”

T.O.P’s lyrics state:

I don’t like awkward settings
Why is the sound of the clock ticking so loud?
All I can hear is the sound of swallowing spit
Look baby, all I want is to greet the morning with you
A secret party for just us two before the night comes to an end
But you’re like Cinderella, you try to go home when the clock hits 12
Being alone makes the night so long
Call in to your parents, don’t try to act tough
S.O.S, advancing seems so far
Oh! wait a minute, why am I like this?
Am I drunk, I’m so dizzy, I’m falling asleep
.”
