After School vs T-ara Pt.1: After School

I suppose they aren’t really going against each other as After School has already started to perform, then again I’m expect T-ara to start performing this week.

After School and T-ara’s come back MVs were released not too long ago and then it was followed by a single [from After School] and an album [from T-ara].

After School’s title single is a song called “너 때문에 Because Of You” and at first listen I loved it. Having already released singles like ‘Ah’ and ‘Diva’ [produced by the Brave Brothers] I was expecting something else along those lines. ‘Ah’ and ‘Diva’ were never really (in my eyes) good songs, they were catchy songs but they still lacked something. They were just songs to get them noticed, with half of the group in their late 20s/early 30s and half in their early 20s I suppose it was kind of hard to find something for the group to do.

With ‘Ah’ they tried the sexy route, and with ‘Diva’ they did the more cutesy look [I reckon Diva was only there because of the introduction of UEE, shes pretty young, I know beckha is young but she does carry with her that young vibe, she doesn’t ‘use’ like UEE does]. ‘Because of You’ to me is a song that finds that balance, you can’t go wrong with a RnB ballad.

With the introduction of two new members, Nana and Raina [So-Young left the group], I was eager to see how well they could sing [In my eyes only Jung Ah could sing really well, Ga-hee isn’t bad but she is better at rapping]. Nana she looks and sounds like your typical squeaky japanese girl. Raina on the other hand, can sing and she is pretty good from what I have heard so far. She helps Jung Ah lighten the burden [Jung Ah has pretty much had to do all the singing bits or support when it’s not ‘her’ part], but in ‘Because of You’ it’s like Raina got all the singing bits now LOL.

‘Because of You’ is another track done by The Brave Brothers [I’m starting to think if he/they are working for Pledis now] and I’m really surprised you don’t get many songs like this for them, it’s very good. Its a catchy song but not catchy in a cheesy pop way, catchy in a good way. Lets hope they get the success this song deserves.

The MV would have been pretty good if they didn’t add in the little homosexual love. That just made the MV a little weird. They should have just stuck to the simple male/female relationship gone bad.


You're Beautiful… You're Beautiful… ITS TRUE!!!!

I had too!! I just had too!! James Blunt was the MAN with that song!! hahahaha

No don’t worry I’m not about to go into a James Blunt frenzy, I’m actually going to talk about another korean drama, an idol drama might I add, You’re Beautiful. Currently LOVING IT!!!!

Stars Jang Geun Suk, Park Shin Hye, Lee Hong KiJung Yong Hwa and UEE. I LOVEEEEE Park Shin Hye, loved her since seeing her in Stairway to Heaven, noticed her from that, I thought to myself ‘gosh that girl who plays young Choi Ji Wo, is so pretty!!’ Even since then I have watched the other series she has been in and also her movies.

Jang Geun Suk, noticed him from drama Hwan Jin Yi, it’s probably the series that got him popular too [what a great series it was too].

Well You’re Beautiful is about an idol group called A.N.Jell, their boss tells them that he has found another member to add into the group [much to leader JGS’s displeasing]. New member Go Mi Nam, with the advice from his manager goes to get a little surgery done and in true drama fashion it went horribly wrong. Mr.Manager now worrying goes to find Mi Nam’s twin little sister Go Mi Nyu to ask her to stand in his place until he is all fixed up! Of course she agrees, she is very naive but can you blame her?? She was brought up in a nunnery!! Well some of the A.N.Jell members find out quite early on and the rest you’ll just have to watch!!!!





I love Jung Yong Hwa who plays Kang Shin Woo!!! JYH is pretty damn good looking!!!! I love JGS but the character Kang Shin Woo is tooooooo AWWWWWWWWWWWWW. You know I’ve probably not felt this much love and hurt for a supporting actor in a ‘korean drama’ since Lee Jun Ki in My Girl. I kind of want PSH to go with JYH!!!! He is just sooooo lovely!! But in true drama fashion ‘The good guy never gets the girl.
