I wake up this morning and this is the treat I get!! Fangirl heaven!!! I love this song, its awesome (and I really mean it)!!
I would not say goodbye to you two!!! But….. what the hell is a snake doing in the video… ewwww
Just a quick post as I’m going to set out for work soon!!!
WOOOOOOO 2NE1 are back!!! Below is their music video for one of the title songs ‘Clap’
The MV isn’t bad, nothing amazing, the start somewhat reminds me of ‘Fire’‘s street MV but who cares its about the song!!
Its a very 2NE1 song!! I quite like, different from current mainstream Kpop but then again thats the kind of music 2NE1 will get!!
I know I’m going to get all this hate message from (I was once infamous on youtube for being anti-Dara apparently… then again it doesn’t help when I don’t deny the fact that I think Dara should never have been in 2NE1) this but I must STRESS I am very PRO-YG I have ALWAYS BEEN!!!! I just don’t like people who can’t sing take up all the singing slots!! Yes its Dara again!! Teddy has hit that big fat AUTO-TUNE button for her ¬______¬ Seriously Dara is just an average singer, nothing special but not really bad!! But why does she get a lot of singing time in Clap???? Now we have Park Bom amazing voice, amazing vocal talent and shes just at the chorus, I get that the chorus is the main bit the bit that everyone will get hooked on to….. but to only give her that bit is NOT RIGHT!!!!!
I’ve not listened to the rest of the album yet, so of course I will comment on it!! Oh just to let you readers know, I will be posting a LOT of 2NE1 posts compared to other Kpop stuff, this is because I like them hence why I will criticise them more or rave more about them!! I’m a fan with a mind, I won’t just say ALL GOOD stuff about them!!! If it aint good it will be said as well!!! Thats what true fans are!
One of my favourite Korean Artists, Gummy. She is AWESOME!!!! I like her because of her talent, she has an awesome voice (well she did start out as a vocal coach for some of the YG artists) and her songs (well most) are GREAT!!! As much as I like my korean pop/idols I do prefer ballads over it, such as Gummy, SG wannabe, Tei, Ha Dong Kyun, K.Will and etc. I just love the emotion these artists put into the songs!!
So she is back with a new mini album [her last album was in 2008 and it was Volume 4 entitled Comfort], entitled ‘Loveless’ and the title track is ‘As A Man’. If I’m honest I would have loved a full length album, and I would have prefered ‘There Is No Love’ to be the title track (I actually like all tracks but that is my favourite).
‘As A Man’ is a more up beat track, remember her I’m Sorry track? Well it’s not quite the same I just used that as an example as the melody was quite upbeat but Gummy’s singing style was still very ‘ballad’. This track was produced and composed by YG’s very own Teddy Park, he is the resident producer/composer (though in recent years, his recent works for members of the YG Family have been plagued with plagiarism, he is still awesome). The music video also stars Kim Hyun Joong (of SS501) and actress Jung Ryeo Won (My Lovely Sam Soon, Which Star Are You From), I was quite surprised that there wasn’t a single YG artist in the video but then again YG are not really known to use their own people in the videos…. but to have an Idol from and another entertainment company (DPS Ent) was very surprising!!
Well below is a clip of Gummy singing There Is No Love LIVE!!!! Now this is what you call live, its just like the CD!!! Too awesome! After that is the music for title track As A Man.
Was sorting through my music folder and I was Moo Ga Dang and thought hey haven’t listened to this in a while!
Turned it on and thought auhhhh I did like these guys!!
Song Baek Kyoung (of 1TYM)’s sub group, was like a project group he was apart of during 2006 and 2007. They only released a mini album in 2006 and then a two track single in 2007. It was pretty cool seeing these guys as it got Baek Kyoung in the lime light again (oh how I’ve missed 1TYM), it was also nice seeing Lee Eun Joo (of former Swi.T and now aka soon-to-be Mrs.YG). Other members included Prhyme (of former Soul Food), and Kim Woo Geun (of former Bounce).
Just Sexy by Moo Ga Dang
Click the above to hear Moo Ga Dang’s Just Sexy from their 1st mini album, I quite like this song! Maybe thats because Lee Eun Joo sing quite a bit in it!
TaeYang’s Wedding Dress music video came out today and do I love it? Well of course I do!!! How can you not!! [Yes I am in fan girl mode so whatever you say won’t matter to me].
Ok ok lets be fair now, Wedding Dress is a really nice easy to listen song. I really like the melody, the piano part and then the beat in the background does goes well.
Do I prefer it to Where U At? Well yes I do, Where you at was too, how should I say it ‘common’? No that doesn’t sound right, more like songs in that type of field sound similar. Not saying Wedding Dress sounds one of a kind, but it s more of its own song. I really do like the piano part, its not just in the background supporting the other sounds, its the other sounds supporting the piano part. Its just a really nice song, TaeYang has a great voice, not that the song particular shows off his vocal as I think he so much more to give, vocal wise.
Lets talk about the music video, it actually has a proper story to it. What I mean by that is that not many YG videos habe a clear cut story, this one does and its a good one too. You’re typical 3friends [two guys and a girl], of course both guys like the girl but only one gets the girl.
In the first half of the video you see scenes of TaeYang and the girl, thinking it is past memories of their good times, but as the music video progresses you realise it was never their past memories of the good times, of the times when the were together/as a couple. As the other male friend is actually there too, so it ended up being of times of them hanging out as friends [though the other guy and girl were probably together]. So its pretty much a one sided love from TaeYang, though through the scenes you could feel he always wanted to take their friendship a step further but the other guy always came into the scene, stealing this thunder.
How well will the song do? I’m hoping it will do as good as ‘Only Look at Me’ but the competitiveness of the market is ridiculous at the moment and with 2PM making a comeback during the same time maybe TaeYang will forever get number2. Though if I am honest, even though I like 2PM alot ‘Heartbeat’ isn’t really that good, even 10 out of 10 was better. Seriously it really isn’t, I didn’t like the rap at the start, the melody wasn’t strong enough, the song didn’t allow the members to sing, and we know 2PM has singers who CAN sing.
