You know there's actually a pretty awesome website dedicated to Kpop for the English speaking folk and the best part is that they make crazy videos similar to those produced on Giant Bomb.

Check it.

Simon and Martina are pretty great. They also get on my nerves pretty quickly, but I enjoy them in small doses.

Whew, page seven. You guys were right. Lets keep videos to links.

New Ku Hye Sun. She's amazing: actress, director, musician, and painter. I wish she released more music.

One of the first Korean songs I ever listened to was her song Brown Hair, still one of my favorites. So sweet and playful. Got roped into all of this Kpop because one day I started watching Boys Over Flowers randomly on Netflix. Somehow I got hooked. It's overall a pretty terrible drama, but I love Ku Hye Sun, my first Korean obsession.

#306 Posted by onimonkii (2452 posts) -

new f(x) is out and it's alright. it's got a decent instrumental but kind of lacks energy, i dunno. it's enjoyable. red haired krystal is the worst though.

meanwhile over in the nugu zone, tahiti put out a new track and it's pretty decent. and aoa black, which i guess is the band subunit of aoa? put out a pretty mediocre song imo. one of the girls looks like alice from hello venus and that's the only highlight.

more comebacks, koyote is back with hollywood, double a is back with midnight taxi, and outsider is back after his military service with bye u.

new BEG next week, i hope it's good, here's the teaser for kill bill, which looks like it is quite literally, kill bill. also 5dolls, or should i say f-ve dolls, is coming back soon as well, now with 6 members, one of which is oh yeonkyung from the seeya :D

Man, yeah, I agree on the lack of energy, especially when you compare it to Electric Shock which was so great at being in your face constantly. There are parts here and there that bring it up a bit, but it isn't very exciting overall.

That BEG teaser seems promising. I'm curious to see how far they go with the "homage" in the actual video.

still waiting on the MV but BEG just performed recipe & kill bill on inkigayo and it was awesome.

in other news girl's days new summery song isn't all that great.

#309 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

Love the new f(x). You're crazy about not liking Krystal's red hair. Loved their school uniform outfits on Inkigayo.

BEG is one of my favorite groups and I'll say that track is pretty good, but it's not blowing me away. I'm hoping it will grow on me and I can't wait for the full album.

IU has left Inkigayo and this must mean that she is going full force into her new album. That is what I am excited for the most. I've been watching "You're the Best, Lee Soon Shin" all week and she's also an amazing actress. Watching that show, she has the greatest eyes in the world. So adorable, I'm dying over here.

#310 Posted by onimonkii (2452 posts) -

listening to the gsd summer song again it's not that bad, i was probably a bit harsh on it at first. i like it, it's just not their best stuff (don't forget me, don't flirt, etc.)

i dunno if you guys keep up with it at all but apparently crayon pop is full on going viral in korea right now. it's insane how fast it's happening, people are saying they're hearing the song in malls and shops, SM artists have been performing dance covers of bar bar bar at live shows, and the performance director for SM even made a remix, and most recently, SS501 leader/industry veteran Kim Hyun Joong came out and said they were his favorite rookie group on tv.

"I'm a ghost senior because I'm not used to being greeted by my juniors. I run away from them. I do watch girl group videos on YouTube. My favorite junior is rookie girl group Crayon Pop. I have a song titled 'Lucky Guy' and the 'Bar Bar Bar' choreography is similar to it. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say they copied it. Should I sue them.... (laughter). I'm joking, they're a junior I really like."

there's some fancams of people chanting/cheering/dancing along to bar bar bar in a baseball stadium, and it's in the top 10, if not the top 5 of every single chart right now. tonight was the first time they were invited to perform on inkigayo since their debut stage.

I'd say it's their best song since Nu ABO. Electric Shock was completely flat for me because it lacked in music - just sounded like them in an echo chamber. Krystal has always been my favorite so I can stomach the red hair but yah, the whole "dye one of the members in a wacky color" trend in KPOP is losing it's muster. Luna looks like she lost some weight, and I continue disliking how Amber is styled as an androgynous tomboy.

#312 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

@onimonkii: It's pretty cool to see it happen for Crayon Pop the way it is. They've worked incredibly hard. I just saw fancams a few days ago of Girl's Day singing pieces of BarBarBar during their warm up and then a couple of the guys from Shinee doing the dance at the end of their concert. Loved the Inkigayo performance where it looked like their backup dancers were fans. lol

Follow Amber on twitter. Look at her pics and how she dresses in her free time. She is a tomboy. That's not just SM's doing. Her older sister is like that too. You can also see it in her dancing. It is more powerful and dynamic, like a guy's.

#315 Edited by wemibelec90 (1806 posts) -

@humanity: I won't say that Electric Shock was the greatest song. It just has great energy and a great beat. I haven't really heard much else from them aside from this and Electric Shock and I just prefer ES--at least after only one listen of the new song.

not to be a dick but this is pop music, there's no direct correlation between having great vocals and having a song that becomes popular. i think a lot of people forget that sometimes, with all the focus on the vocal powerhouse artists/groups and ways to determine who sings best live etc. sometimes all you need is a simple, catchy, fun song that people like to hear.

#318 Posted by wemibelec90 (1806 posts) -

@onimonkii: No doubt. I love a good catchy pop song as much as the next guy. It's just fascinating how the songs that catch on the heaviest seem to be entirely random; if you think about it, what distinguishes those songs that are extremely popular from the multitude of other catchy pop songs? I do think that the MV is great fun and can understand why people are so enamored with it. Crayon Pop is a cute group. I'm anxious to see what they do next, especially with this newfound popularity.

BEG is just soooo good.

yeah that's the thing, i don't like their other albums that much, because their non-singles just feel like reject snsd songs or just otherwise aren't great. but this one is good from front to back. black box is good too though

i think f(x) has the better album overall, but BEG has the better singles

#324 Edited by wemibelec90 (1806 posts) -

That BEG album is pretty good across the board, with the possible exception of Kill Bill which I'm still not sure I like yet. It's likely it will grow on me, as several KPOP songs seem to do.

While we're talking about albums, I have a question for the kings of KPOP here. Do you buy albums and if so, where? The only album I actually own is J-Rabbit and that's because they sell it digitally on Amazon for a decent price. Is there a way to get KPOP albums digitally somewhere or are you pretty much stuck with physical ones shipped from overseas? If physical albums are really the only option, is there a good place to get them for a not absurd price?

Feel free to ignore this question if you simply use Youtube or pirate them. :)

I get my stuff from kpopmart.com. They're only up to $13 most the time and as I live in the UK it gets super cheap. The most expensive part is fast shipping, but if you don't need it quickly there's a cheap shipping option.

#326 Posted by LibrorumProhibitorum (357 posts) -

And as for this month I'd say f(x)'s Rum Pum Pum Pum is the best song of the month, and Brown Eyed Girls' Kill Bill has yet to grow on me, but I'll still probably get their Black Box album either way.

As much as people hate SM, this year they've been doing some really off the wall things with their groups. They're becoming almost experimental as a label, I Got a Boy had various tempo changes and f(x)'s Rum Pum Pum Pum is so different from any other title track they've done. EXO becoming one group for this promotion, both the K and M learning each others language respectively and producing a song which is so heavy on the vocals yet is nuts with dubstep. SM is a really interesting label, and everything they do seems to be off the wall nuts and surprising.

Also Luhan is my wife.

#327 Posted by onimonkii (2452 posts) -

@wemibelec90 i used to buy songs off mnet until they made it a pain in the ass to add funds to your account. most stuff is on itunes from what i hear, or you could try soribada

ccm just popped out a double with t-ara & davichi feat. skull and their summer special song, bikini and the long awaited return of 5dolls with soulmate #1

personally i like the 5dolls song more. the best word i could use to describe the other is "inoffensive". speaking of, here's the new girl's day summer special song, do tell me

@librorumprohibitorum i don't really hate sm on principle or anything but most of their artists just do nothing for me. henry was a big exception, OOLF was a good song but other than that exo doesn't have much i'm into, but now pink tape is actually really good. i got a boy gets way too much credit just because it was snsd, when glam & fiestar did the same thing first w/ i like that & we don't stop.

everything about snsd lately just feels like coasting on past success, we get like 1 song a year if we're lucky in korean and yet they're still "on top" somehow despite a billion other groups actually working their asses off promoting and putting out good music. it's cool tho i'm sure they'll turn up this winter and pop out a korean version of a song off their last japanese album to throw another log into the fire.

woops i'm ranting about snsd again.

woops i'm ranting about snsd again.

I've actually seen a mostly negative reaction to I Got a Boy compared to everything else they've done, and it's mostly because of the tempo stuff, and that it's SNSD. SM likes SNSD to be in Japan because it is pure profit as opposed to releasing anything in Korea. SNSD absolutely destroys the Oricon chart consistently with their releases, so I don't blame SM for putting their effort into Japan over Korea. You see a similar thing happening with KARA where most of their songs are Japanese now and a Korean comeback is a huge profitable event for the label.

Also, I love GLAM, I adore GLAM to death, but I Like That is nothing like I Got a Boy outside of the mixed American apparel hip hop concept. The song's meaning is different, the choreography is different, and I Like That is more of a love-note to Korean pop culture and the way society is over there, I Got a Boy on the other hand is about the mixed emotions you feel when you're in love, and conveying them through a beat and tempo.

Apparently SNSD's comeback in Korea after the Girls & Peace World Tour is going to be an original song, and it'll comeback right next to Taetiseo's new album. It may not look like it, but SNSD made idol and girl groups what they are today, or at least formed a path to go down, they do take inspiration from old, old idol groups around the time of Into The New World and Kissing You, but they work hard. Just because you don't see it doesn't mean it does not happen. This year they've had a comeback, promotions for the comeback, a Japanese tour, filming for two Japanese songs, the promotions of the Japanese songs, a flash mob of sorts, various solos for Korean drama series' and recording music for upcoming film releases, recording of new music (aforementioned Taetiseo comeback and Korean SNSD comeback) and that's not to mention some of the individual members are recording dramas right now. This all on top of a World Tour. To put that into comparison, 2NE1 last year had to choose between new music promotions or a World Tour, and they chose the latter. Falling in Love was recorded last year, and you can hear it on their I Love You comeback stage on Inkigayo.

I hope this gives you a little more insight, if not and you already knew this I apologise, I'm way too passionate about these nine girls. (and f(x) oh my god f(x))

#329 Edited by onimonkii (2452 posts) -

@librorumprohibitorum i did already know all of that because it's the same thing literally everyone says about them. i just personally don't give a shit about anything that happens in japan, despite all the money there is to be made there, there's less tv music performances, which are my meat and potatoes so to speak, so japanese promotion time is wasted on me, since i'm not in japan. at least when they promote in korea, i get to see it because of how their music promotion works. kara and now t-ara are the same way, more time spent in japan where events/performances aren't filmed/broadcast really.

it seems like that's the split, once you get big enough to break out of korea and into japan, you can take longer between releases and just tour, where when you're stuck in korea you're just busting your ass pumping out songs hoping you earn enough of the public's mindshare to be considered for "the tier that will forever be directly beneath snsd" (4minute, sistar, secret, girl's day, etc.).

but i'm also biased in that i personally haven't liked anything snsd has done since oh! really, and i don't like japanese language songs from korean artists, they just sound weird to me. like, 3 exceptions are orange caramel's yasashii akuma, and 4minute's love tension & ready go. that's the other shitty part i guess haha, everyone who listens to them seems just as passionate about them as you are if not more & follows them super closely, but to someone like me to whom they are just another group, they don't really hold up so well. but you can't explain that to the other camp, you just hate them because of how big they are etc. if you try and judge them the same as any other group.

i got a boy was especially weird because like, yeah when a new song comes out i'll give it a couple listens to let it really sink in, but there were people literally forcing themselves to listen to it with the mv/without the mv over and over in various ways UNTIL they "got" it and liked it. it was super weird reading comments like "hey guys, here's how i started to like the song, maybe try listening to it like this and you can like it too".

#330 Posted by LibrorumProhibitorum (357 posts) -

@onimonkii: Don't get me wrong, I judge the quality of SNSD's songs just like I'd judge any other girl groups music, I just really like SNSD's music and experimentation. Though I do judge boy and girl groups separately, as sometimes boy groups have a different appeal and go for a different tone and often different style of music, like I'd never compare BIGBANG to SNSD outside of "who has the most fans? (based on café's etc)" and "who sells the most units?" as that is all what matters when comparing those groups. Maybe that comes off as a little sexist or something, but I've noticed a distinct difference in boy and girl groups to kinda separate the two.

When it comes to music, you either like it or you don't. It's hard to change anyone's opinion of a song because of how objective liking music is to a person, which is why I'd never say "this is outright bad" or "you need to listen to it like THIS" to anyone, because music doesn't work like that. Sometimes an MV can be too much information the first time and would require listening without the MV, which is what a lot of people had issues with regarding I Got a Boy. There were nine girls, tons of different outfits, several tempo changes, several sets, a lot of hair dye, and a scene where they looked identical. It was difficult to take all of the information in at once, it's an exhausting MV, so I can understand why people just needed to inject it bit by bit into their brain.

As for you not liking the Japanese promotions, that is understandable, you don't really get to see those promotions easily as Japan has some unusual broadcast terms and they don't trust the internet yet, but that's changing ever so slowly. I'm used to this as I'm a fan of Japanese music like Perfume, Capsule and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, and I believe Nakata Yasutaka is God incarnate come to this planet to save us all from the sin of Western music, BUT that means I can get by, look forward to the albums and get the MV's on a DVD (fucking DVD's, Blu-ray people.)

Though, to prove I'm not just a crazy SONE defending SNSD to the death, and I acknowledge they are flawed as any other group (aside from Jessica as she will be my wife one day) I also really love 9MUSES, GLAM as I mentioned before, I like 4minute a whole lot (this year hasn't been their strongest), I'm not too keen on T-ara but I love T-ara N4's mini-album, Secret is fantastic, f(x) is my second favourite group ever, I really like BoA, I find Miss A phenomenal, Lee Hi is THE BEST and my other favourite group on part with SNSD is 2NE1. Also, SunnyHill, they're always great.

As for boy groups I love SHINee, BIGBANG, MBLAQ, Infinite, Nu'est, LC9, BTS, Super Junior (manly -M), but my favourite boy group right now is EXO. I really, really like EXO. I like everything about EXO so much.

I just like this stuff a lot.

Thanks everyone for the quick responses. I guess physical albums are my best option, as I don't want any of my music locked up in iTunes and those other digital sites seem somewhat iffy to me. Not the worst thing in the world, but digital would certainly have been easier.

@librorumprohibitorum: It is a huge bummer how impossible it can be to find a Japanese music video and the labels are VERY QUICK at getting them pulled off Youtube and other video sites. I can't count the number of times I've had videos disappear and have a hard time tracking them down again. Also, I appreciate your taste in Japanese pop groups. :)

@aurahack: @onimonkii:

Dudes, something really cool has happened. Recently Crayon Pop's BarBarBar went viral and became huge in Korea a couple months after its release. They started getting on more and more music shows until finally they won their first show today. This is a really big deal. Very happy for them. They are from a no-name company with very little money, and they use to perform on the streets because they couldn't get into music shows. They've also had some recent bullshit controversies. But the girls persevered and has finally made it. Very awesome.

#348 Posted by wemibelec90 (1806 posts) -

Man, it's been awhile since anyone has posted here! I need to resurrect this thread from the dead with a few songs I've been enjoying lately:

The Cure by Drunken Tiger is a nice mellow rap song with a soothing melody.

I Ain't Going Home Tonight from Navi starts a bit slow but picks up into a somewhat repetitive but fun song.

Rocking by Teen Top is maybe a bit generic and predictable, but I like it. It's a bit of a guilty pleasure with its catchy hook.

Feel Good from CNBLUE is an enjoyable pop-rock song. I'm really starting to get into this group with songs like this (and Lady on the JPOP side of things). The guitar lead-in to the song is pretty good too.

Hope someone finds these enjoyable!
