K-Pop (General Discussion)

Bubble Pop is a fun song, and yeah, it did get a lot of people to notice Kpop. But, honestly, the reason most of them clicked on it the first time was "Hot asian chick dancing in skimpy clothing."

This doesn't ring true at all, because all the coverage is about the song and sounds and the video is extremely ordinary and unspectactular by any western standard. Like, it's literally the most basic of summery video ideas, dancing in a few outdoor settings. Songs like "I Am The Best" got a lot more write-ups for its video.

Hilarious IU "popping" http://youtu.be/hD5F9RTSxig
 
Trouble Maker had only like 3 moves changed. They're touching each other a bit less. Nice publicity stunt. I bet they'll be back to the original choreography in Brazil.
 
I have come to the conclusion that Tick Tack is really, really, really good. It's so powerful; no doubt the best song of U-Kiss' career.

I'm still not 100% sure where they fit in the industry though, INFINITE found their niche, but U-Kiss just come across as 'not quite as good' as the other top tier boy bands.

I agree. And the full Tick Tack video has its moments. Soohyun and Hoon reminded me of HoMin in a good way. Tick Tack as a song... It caused a bit of a chaos in my otherwise pretty constant Top 10.

U-Kiss' marketing is lacking. Also their stylists should've been sacked a while ago. What else... Oh yeah, I think they were marketed as the international group of guys that is very very successful internationally. I get why that message didn't click with some of their potential Korean fanbase (=the people who spend loads of money on other groups).
 
Tick Tack is amazing. And in general U-KISS is probably the most consistent K-Pop group musically for me.

They've been around since 2008 and still haven't won anything. I don't think they'll ever get the success they deserve in Korea which is a shame. I love them though. One of the best groups in K-Pop and Ulzzang Beauty Kiseop is one of my favorite Idols.
 
Gosh, why has the Kpop scene been so dead for the past month now? I need a big SCANDAL to happen (No the leaked sex tape scandal isn't enough, even if it is hilarious.)

Can't wait for the Gayo Daejun though... I want to see Hara dancing like a video hoe again.

Yeah. I want K-Pop scandals too. Real scandals! Not just touching bums, TV stations banning certain songs and netizens sending weird gifts to their idols.
 
Am i the only fan of Brave Girls in here? I just rediscovered them and they are all so gorgeous, even the slightly kooky looking one. And the lead singer has such a gorgeous tone to her voice.

That's because we've gotten used to pop stars dating now. So they need to up their game.

ALi - Don't Be Tacky MV

I mentioned about her previously in this thread when she performed on "Immortal Song 2". She has great voice, fantastic personality and amazing stage presence. She's finally releasing her debut album "SOUL-RI: A Town With Soul" on December 13th and "Don't Be Tacky" is first single. I like this song, but it doesn't show ALi's full potential. Junhyung from BEAST is featured on it, he doesn't add anything and in my opinion there's too much of him. MV is sad, very sad.
 
Yeah, I've been following her as well and was disappointed at first that the single was this "normal", but it creeps up on you, the melody is really quite special and gorgeous. JunHyung is indeed unnecessary, though - shame. Very much looking forward to her album.

I just posted this but already feel the need to add that the song is really beautiful.

I didn't care much for their first single, but the one they released a few months ago is glorious.
