Wonder Girls say “Be My Baby!”

Oh my God, do you like it??

I did! It’s so bouncy and boppable just like Move was so shakeable and the vocals were unique and kept it interesting. Cool rap bridge too.

Though I still feel there is a definite retro flavour to it but since it’s not in a costumey way *shrugs* I think it’s okay. I guess you could it call it a clasic feel and that’s their thing.

Anywayz is there an english version for this? Is it going to be in their US movie? So many questions!

Wonderfuls must be so proud!^^

BATTLE OF THE GIRLBANDS: SNSD vs Secret vs Wonder Girls vs T-ara

As a hardcore YG Stan/VIP/Blackjack, I wondered if I’m still qualified to give unbiased opinions on the happenings in Kpop.

Truthfully? I don’t know but – my peeps are on break and I love Kpop so I can’t help being drawn into the excitement of the season we are currently witnessing.

And, Oh my fandom, what an exciting season it is for Kpop right now!!! Hearts are beating, ba-thump, ba-thump all across Kpop land and why? Because we are in the season of the return of the mighty SoShi (aka So Nyuh Shi Dae aka SNSD aka Girls Generation)! The 9 angels of Kpop and South Koreas National Girl Group!

I don’t think there’s been such an anticipated come back since I got into Kpop (which granted was just a little more than a year ago! Lol!) Sones (their fanclub) are in an agitated ecstacy!

And the hype is intense too. Newsie blogs have it that other Entertainment Companies were so intimidated by the impending return of the power house girl group that they all rescheduled their own artists come backs! Imagine that!!!

All, however, except the little girl group that could named, Secret, who just released their album “Moving in Secret” as well as one helluva jimmy-janglin title track called “Love is Move” (사랑은 MOVE) .

The four girl group is right now being applauded for their brave “movement” in going ahead with their schedule even though they did say they were concerned since they know what they are up against. It’s already being said by netizens that losing to SNSD would be an honourable defeat for them. One has to admit, lose or win, they definitely got some good spotlight for their “moves”!

Interesting enough though, Secret Time (Secret’s fan club) seem to be cultivating high hopes for their girls based on the released track. I can’t say I blame them. It’s one toe tapping, hip shimmying, hair lashing blast of an infectious song. I’ve listened to it quite a bit myself and it kinda makes me want to get up and shake it! If there’s one thing I can say, the girls of Secret brought an A game to the table and have nothing to be ashamed of.

The drama continues however as also in the running to challenge the Princesses of Kpop are the former Queens of Kpop, The Wonder Girls! I must say I’m excited about this particular chapter in the drama. A noble story of kpop royalty and the struggle to regain that coveted throne of the no 1 girl group!

Both groups have a lot at stake as they have to reward the faithfulness of their respective fandoms by showing they can still deliver on what made them great.

Wonderfuls (the Wonder Girl fanclub) especially have something to be anxious about as their girls have been out of the game for years. Till recently, their activities were all based in the US and there is some sensitivity in their camp over the fact that they never quite blew up over there. This however in no way discounts them as a powerful contender from a very strong Company and with the plans they have in store for a US debut album whose release will coincide with TV Movie to air nationwide on Teen Nick; things may soon change!

I’m really excited to see what they come with. JYP has been dropping intriguing hints on Twitter and  the company’s official word on the album is :

“Since it’s the first album to be released after such a long time, we’re putting a lot of care into each and every song. We will work to bring out a great album and show an awesome image on a perfect stage. We ask for your support.”

And on competing with SNSD:

“It’d be a lie if we said we’re not stressing over SNSD’s comeback. But because we’ll be standing in front of everyone after such a long period away, we’re concentrating more on bringing out a quality album.”

(cr: AllKPop)

The girls are rumoured to be leaving behind their trademark retro style and adopting a more pop look to compliment the style of their movie.  I stand beside Wonderfuls in looking forward to this come back. A group that inspires such an unshakable confidence in fans that have waited this long deserves respect!

And finally to add more sugar to all that spice, we are also expecting come backs from After School’s wildly successful sub-group Orange Caramel and from T-ara who actually already had a hit this summer with “Roly-Poly” and are currently making  rapid advances into Japan.

Back to SNSD; Sones are also another fandom that have unshakable confidence in their girls and the fact that they are one of the biggest fandoms in kpop is also something to respect.

The gorgeous girls of SoShi have already wowed people across the board with the elegant and more mature sexiness of their come back concept looks, a look that seems to announce they are ready to graduate from Princesses to Queens. They have also been dropping teasers for their title track “The Boys” which is said to have been produced by legendary US R&B producer, Teddy Riley. Newsey Blogs have it that SM (SNSD’s Company) plan to use this track to introduce the girls into the US (hence there is an English as well as a Korean version)and there has been much debate as to how successful they will be in that notoriously difficult market.

(Actually it’s officially a race now as to who will break successfully in the US first: 2ne1 with Will-I-Am? SNSD with Teddy Riley? Wonder Girls with the inroads they have already made and I suspect Timbaland which would be so awesome? The good thing is whoever makes it will be opening the door for everyone so there are no losers. Just bragging rights at stake here! Kk!)

The teasers released by SoShi which opens with an uncharacteristically fierce rapping verse and features the girls showing subtle sex appeal in dance moves have been loved by some while others are keeping their judgement till they see the whole video. I think I will be doing that too.

Between all this and Kara’s return from Japan earlier in the season with the successful “Step” as well as Brown Eyed Girls return with the Epic disco-licious “6th Sense,” I have to say that this is a pretty good time to be into Kpop!

Since at the end of everything, the winners are the fans I say – Let the Games Begin! KPop Girl Groups, HWAITING!^^

My Entry to the 2ne1 “Lonely” Cover Contest!!

UPDATE: OhEmGee! I heard if I embed I don’t get the precious views!!!! So I’m gonna just put the link instead! I know it’s more trouble but Please click and view my vid? For me???

NEW UPDATE: Competition is over so I can put it here now. I didn’t win but I’m shocked and pleased at myself for doing it! Lol!

Time for some utterly shameless campaigning!!! I don’t deserve your support since I’ve been schlepping around on tumblr (see cheating on wordpress) instead of updating here. But support anyway because you’re the bigger person and that’s what defines our beautiful, dysfunctional relationship!

Love you forever!

WATCH THE VIDEO PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!

More Dance, More Clothes, More Se7en!!!^^

The other cut of Se7en’s “Better Together” Vid!

I think this one is mildly sexier but a bit disjointed.

Not that I didn’t enjoy it! This song is actually CONSTANTLY playing in my head these days!

I’m haunted T.T

Se7en’s “Better Together” MV

There’s no point in me saying I LOVEd it because you know I did (If you read this blog, you’ll probably have noticed I tend to mostly blog things I love or that at least intrigue me)!!!

My credibility is, I’m sure, shot to hell.

But it’s true. I loved the video!

Se7en is so GORGEOUS!!!

And I loved the little plane thing they do with the choreography at the chorus! And, I’m pretty sure he’s wearing eye liner towards the end!!! And then there’s that bit where he lays on the floor and say he wants to do “something – something -” and snaps his hips in time to it and…

*faints*

Screencaps!!!

(I did the watermarks the hard way so they may be a bit wonky =_=;)

Get it, Se7en!!! YG Fighting!!!

We Want More!!!!!

Is SHinee still considered Jail bait?

I mean for shameless Noonas like me??

Just wondering cos I’m getting butt tired of keeping them at arms length when “Ring Ding Dong” is my main theme song for aggressive traffic driving!!

And now after being befuddled by their concept pics I have seen the MV for their new single Lucifer.

LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God! Who knew it was KPop and not rock that would get me singing out loud on a song where “Lucifer” is the main refrain!!!! And of all groups; Shinee!!!! LOL!! It’s Hilarious!!XD

But the boys look amazing!!! The song is fantastic and the choreography is sooooooo on point!!

credit: sment

Is it just me or do they all look a little more grown?? (Muahaha!! I felt so sleazy just writing that!!)

No but, they look good. Especially Taemin (who I’m not looking at!!! I won’t!!! I don’t wanna go to jail!!!!), Minho (who I’m definitely looking at! That’s right dongsaeng! Better watch out now! Lol!!!) and one of my new guilty pleasures, Key (Stella-chan, I know from your post you’ll be like WTH??^^).

Yes, Key. From “Ring Ding Dong” I decided I liked his style and now that he’s done that crazy shaven thing to his hair that brings out his beautiful diva bones, I’m all over that!! So I’m going to hunt up info about him to make sure he’s not a complete a -hole then I’m adding him to me list^^!

Final word: At least two of them are wearing furry backed jackets/vests. This is just weird enough to be cool.

A+ boys!
